Rev. Robert Gilliesthe bishop of Aberdeen and Orkney in the Scottish Episcopal Church,  and their own bishop, the Rt. Rev. Charles G. vonRosenberg. Both talks built on the convention theme, encouraging both lay and clergy to listen for God’s call to ministry. (Video and texts of both addresses can be found here.)The gathering was the annual business meeting for the local diocese of The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion in eastern South Carolina.The convention voted overwhelmingly to designate historic Grace Episcopal Church in downtown Charleston as the cathedral of the diocese, to be known as “Grace Church Cathedral.” The revised Canon 17 affirms a role that Grace has been serving since early 2013, when a breakaway group left The Episcopal Church along with the parish that formerly served as the cathedral.Chancellor Thomas S. Tisdale Jr., who worked on the cathedral canon, said that naming a cathedral is a positive move for the unity of the diocese. Grace houses the offices of the Bishop and diocesan staff, and will continue to serve as host for a variety of diocesan events, including the 226th Convention in November 2016.The convention also unanimously adopted two resolutions aimed at racial reconciliation. Resolution 1 calls for continued prayer for those affected by the deaths at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston on June 17, and urges congregations in the diocese to follow Mother Emanuel’s example of love and forgiveness.Resolution 2 calls for a renewed commitment to racial justice and reconciliation, and directs the Diocesan Council to develop plans for training, community dialogue, internal examination, and the development of partnerships with other churches and institutions, reporting regularly to the convention and diocesan leadership.Worship services at the convention also included time for prayer and reflection following the news of the attacks in Paris. The meeting reconvened the next day with prayers for the victims and for peace.As part of the diocesan commitment to outreach, the offering at the Nov. 13 Eucharist, totaling $3,478, was designated for two flood relief efforts for South Carolina: the Black River United Way Flood Relief Fund, and Episcopal Relief & Development.Convention-goers also celebrated a milestone for St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in Port Royal. After significant growth in membership and resources, this mission church serving the Beaufort area applied for recognition as a parish of the diocese. The Convention approved the change by acclamation on Saturday, welcoming a parade of St. Mark’s members into the church with a standing ovation.The convention also heard a report from Tisdale Jr. on the status of legal action resulting from the actions of a group that broke away from The Episcopal Church in 2012. A decision from the South Carolina Supreme Court on property issues is expected to come in the next several weeks, but Tisdale said that the future of the diocese is bright, no matter which way the decision goes. “Whatever fork the road takes, we will flourish in either direction,” he said.

M House is a country house located in Avándaro, Mexico. In the design process for House M, the immediate context (Woods) and the typology (country house) became the concepts of more hierarchy. The house sits on the back part of the site, where vegetation allows it. Architecture can be design from fundamental constants, the most common example sun’s trajectory. Save this picture!© Ricardo de La ConchaSave this picture!Floor PlanSave this picture!© Ricardo de La ConchaIn this case, we decide to focus on the rain and the effects it has on architecture. The sound it makes when it drops on the roof tile, the floor, the vegetation or even more water. The smell of wet materials. The flow of space from the interior to the exterior when rain surrounds them. The outcome is a plan in an “L” form that keeps the rooms inside the volume, to which a rectangular plane intersects in the center containing the public space, finishing with the pool.Save this picture!© Ricardo de La ConchaEven though the rooms are part of the same volume, two of them have access from outside halls, reducing the action of entering and leaving the house; in this perimeter we designed top windows, capturing the sunlight in Winter and dissecting different views of the Woods. The materials demanded to be different from one another; this idea can be seen in two zones, “dry one and wet ones”. A stonewall goes across the house from outside to inside creating a connection between “dry and wet” materials.Save this picture!© Regina Gracía RojasSave this picture!Section CSave this picture!© Regina Gracía RojasProject gallerySee allShow less7 Houses of the Future – According to the PastArticlesHow Are Fiber Cement Panels Created?Articles Share “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/915425/m-house-saavedra-arquitectos Clipboard CopyHouses•Valle de Bravo, Mexicolast_img read more

Solidarity and security in revolutionary times

first_imgSara FloundersThis talk was given on Nov. 19 at the Workers World Party national conference in Newark, N.J. Who here is feeling a bit overwhelmed this weekend? Everyone here knows that we are living in a system that is in crisis. This capitalist system can’t solve its problems. And it is getting worse.A hurricane in Puerto Rico or in Houston, a fire in California, a plant closing — and people are on their own for survival. There is no plan for an economic collapse or a natural disaster impacting millions.It is the determination to fight for change that brings us to revolutionary activism. That is the first step. This is a determined group of militant fighters. I wish I could say that the future is rosy, that the path is straight.We can only assure you that each militant here today is more secure in a political party than if you are on your own confronting state repression and trying to figure out a system based on chaos and intentional confusion. If you expect stability and that everything will go according to plan, we can’t give you that because the capitalist system is incapable of providing that to anyone.Anchor in a stormHowever, Workers World Party can be an anchor in a wild storm.A report on social media about this conference said that more than 56,000 people viewed it on a live stream online. Some members have worked nonstop to fend off an unprecedented online attack to shut it down. Holding this conference takes organizing security on different levels.We speak boldly and give confidence. We are not just talking to each other. We are talking to a wider audience that is hungry to hear about fightback, resistance and socialism.But a repressive state apparatus and racist white supremacists are listening, too. If we take ourselves seriously, we always need to keep both audiences in mind. So we have to constantly make plans, project struggles and know when to spin on a dime and respond to crisis. We can’t predict what is coming at us — except war, austerity and disasters.Training to be cadreIt takes training to be a skilled fighter. That is what a cadre is — a trained revolutionary fighter. A fighter doesn’t only have one move. It takes training to duck and weave, feint, dip and confront full-on. It takes training to think a step ahead.Our collective strength is one resource. Past struggles are another resource. Communist revolutions, communist parties’ experiences, and past and historic mass uprisings provide a rich history, worthy of study.Revolutionary theory is a science. It can be studied and creatively applied. It is a science of showing solidarity on a working-class basis. Political theory provides the tools to understand national oppression and build unity as well as analyze the capitalist state and global imperialism.Cadre training is never-ending. We are constantly learning how to contend with the crises this system, based on theft and duplicity, throws at us. This is why communists take up so many issues on so many fronts. The most important training is to answer every lie that capitalists throw at us with class truth.If we don’t continually do this, then one social media hype or one fake nongovernmental human rights assault can blow us away. There is no such thing as a humanitarian mission carried out by U.S. imperialism. Whenever the media appears to speak with one voice, we need to be wary and ask, “What’s behind this?” Then we must prepare to stand our ground. Crises come without knocking politely. We are training so we are not caught off-guard.Class viewpoint keyWorkers World Party has a consistent view. It is how we have survived decades of political upheaval worldwide. Our view is based on an analysis of the “Global Class War” — that there are two fundamental classes.Eight people in the world own more wealth than half the planet’s population. Just four years ago, 80 billionaires had that amount. The capitalist concentration of wealth is criminal and extreme. The world’s population produces everything and owns practically nothing.To protect this system of expropriation, of theft, the state apparatus has grown to gargantuan proportions. It has a gigantic military machine, a vast repressive police apparatus and prison system, and well-paid corporate media.This dying system needs racism and other forms of divisiveness. It needs to fund the most reactionary ideas and fascist forces. U.S. imperialism has become more dangerous and more desperate in its decline.What are the tasks ahead?We must find the young workers and oppressed people who are looking for us, those who are determined to fight for a better world.We must build a movement of unity and solidarity. WWP builds unity by consciously building solidarity with the most oppressed people, those most marginalized, isolated and ignored by society. We support and join struggles of African-American, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian, Arab, Muslim and LGBTQ and disabled people, immigrants, women and workers. We give voice and listen to the demands and needs of the most oppressed people.It is a global war. We build solidarity with struggles and countries targeted by U.S. imperialism around the world: Venezuela, Cuba, Honduras, Zimbabwe, Iran, Yemen, Syria, Palestine, Afghanistan, north Korea, China and Russia. The African continent is under siege; in the past year, the U.S. carried out 3,500 U.S. military operations in Africa, 10 a day.There is a continuing dialectic. As communists we need to plan our weekly newspaper, classes and meetings. We need to initiate our own campaigns, set dates and bring in allies. But in reality we can’t predict our agenda. We must be geared to responding to racist outrages, police crimes and new wars.If you are feeling overwhelmed, embrace it! It is the new normal. We are training ourselves to overwhelm this racist, chaotic, dying system with organized peoples’ power. Dare to struggle! Dare to win!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

$400 million to help improve Fort Worth over the next 5 years

Voters will be asked to approve six propositions totaling the amount in the May 5 municipal election. Most of the money, $261 million, is for street infrastructure improvement. The rest will apply to the following improvements: $84 million for parks and recreation improvements– this includes $3 million for a new community park in far north Fort Worth, $2.5 million for Chisholm Trail Park in southwest Fort Worth and $1.3 million for utility infrastructure work at the city-owned zoo.$9.9 million for public library improvements– this comprises $9.9 million for a new library in the far southwest.$12 million for fire safety improvements– this includes more than $5.3 million to demolish fire station 26 and $6.4 to build fire station 45.$14 million for animal care and shelter facility improvements$18 million for police facility improvementsRoger Venables, who oversees Fort Worth’s property management as assistant director, said the bond program develops and maintains the city’s infrastructure, especially roads that need repaving or additional lanes. Venables said the city began developing the bond proposal two years ago. He said department needs totaled about $1.6 billion, which were sifted through and prioritized. Ultimately the proposal is a compromise of what the city council and the community wanted to see, he said.Fort Worth resident Shirley Turner said she supports the bond and encourages people to vote for it, even if they don’t know much about the bond.“I know there’s always so much waste, but you really have to vote for every bond package just to keep even,” said Turner. “We’re not keeping pace, and we need to. I mean the city of Fort Worth is growing so much. Our streets need work especially.”The projected end date for all improvements is 2023. Projects will be staggered so as not to negatively impact the city’s operational budget each year, Venables said.“You’ll always have a little overlap; things will come up. But that’s our target,” he said. “For instance, the 2014 bond, I think we are about 65 percent complete on that, but making good progress. So [2023], that’s our goal, that’s our projections.” The city is hosting six public education meetings where residents can ask questions about the bond project and how it will directly affect their community.

Is folk art in Brundidge going down the toilet?

Twelve of them,” Rich said. “First National Bank had remodeled the building on the corner of Main Street and the toilets were in the dumpster. We pulled them out.”One potted plant has grown into Flushing Meadows garden with a variety of blooming plants.“Toilets make natural planters,” Rich said. “The water from the toilet tank naturally flows into the bowl and the excess water seeps out. So, a toilet has its own watering system from top to bottom.”Most of the pots have been planted with a variety of blooming plants and grasses. Red Root Farms has offered herbs for planting when pots become available.The toilets stand against the old alleyway brick wall of studio 116 like sentries on guard or like young ladies awaiting the debutant ball – depending.“Some of the toilets have something planted in the tank and in the bowl,” Rich said. “We should have a lot of blooms in the spring and summer.”The Toilet Garden runs the length of the back of studio 116. However, there is space along the back walls of the other businesses if the other business owners would like for their backside to be gallery space.“We’ve kept the toilets along our wall,” Rich said. “Sara and I don’t want to impose our aesthetics on others.”But Rich would like for Flushing Meadows to be the roots for a green space project that would incorporate the back of the buildings on the west side of Main Street.“When we have the Peanut Butter Festival and SpringFest a lot of people are exposed to the alley,” he said. “It would be nice to have a green space back there as opposed to an area that is back of the buildings so we don’t have to worry about it.”But for the owners of studio 116, the back alley is how they enter and leave their studio most of the time.“That’s the first thing we see when we get to the studio and the last thing we see when we leave at night,” Rich said. “We want it to look nice and the hibiscus look pretty up against the red brick wall.”The back alley toilet garden is the town’s latest venture into the folk arts. It’s got folks talking and, if they are saying, “way to go” then Rich’s plan for the back alley revitalization just might float.

Facebook campaign tops $5 million to reunite immigrant families separated at border

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(SILICON VALLEY) — In a little over three days, a fundraising campaign on Facebook has topped $6 million to help reunite undocumented families split up by the U.S. government at the Mexico border.The fundraiser page, “Reunite an immigrant parent with their child,” was launched on Saturday by three Facebook employees. As of Tuesday night more than 146,000 people had donated to the fund, which was fetching more than $61,000 an hour in donations. Several people donated $250,000 each.“We are collectively revulsed at what’s happening to immigrant families on our southern border,” the fund’s organizers wrote the campaign’s Facebook page.The page was launched by Silicon Valley power trio Malorie Lucich and Dave and Charlotte Willner, who were among the original employees at Facebook and now work at Pinterest, the popular image-collecting site. The Willners also work at Airbnb.The goal of the fund is to raise $8 million.The money will go to The Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services, or RAICES, and provide legal aid for undocumented immigrant parents arrested on suspicion of crossing the border illegally.“In times when we often think that the news can’t possibly get worse, it does — we learned … that 2000 children (many of them infants and toddlers) have been separated from their parents in just six weeks under President Trump’s ‘zero tolerance’ policy,” the organizers wrote.Bond for the parents arrested at the border has been set at a minimum of $1,500, according to RAICES. Unlike in the criminal justice system, bail bond companies either do not help people in immigration proceedings or impose strict requirements, according to RAICES.President Donald Trump and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen defended the administration’s controversial immigration policies on Monday.As part of the “zero-tolerance” policy, federal prosecutors have been ordered to file criminal charges against any adult caught crossing the border illegally, including those traveling with minors. The children are being placed in the custody of the Department of Health and Human Services and adults are apprehended by law enforcement.“Children are not being used as a pawn,” Nielsen said at a press briefing Monday. “We are trying to protect the children.”She and Trump said the administration is enforcing laws already on the books.“The voices most loudly criticizing the enforcement of our current laws are those whose policies created this crisis and whose policies perpetuate it,” Nielsen said.Attorney General Jeff Sessions scoffed at claims that the policy harkens back to Nazi Germany after former CIA and NSA Director Michael Hayden, who served mostly under George W. Bush, tweeted a picture of a Nazi concentration camp and wrote, “Other governments have separated mothers and children.”“Well, it’s a real exaggeration,” Sessions said in an interview Monday on Fox News. “Of course, in Nazi Germany, they were keeping the Jews from leaving the country.”The policy of separating parents from children at the border had been widely denounced by both Democrats and Republicans. Former first lady Laura Bush penned an op-ed in The Washington Post calling the policy “cruel” and “immoral,” and comparing it to Japanese internment camps during World War II.Lucich and the Willners called the policy “a grave American moral failing.”“These children don’t know where their parents are,” they wrote on the Facebook fundraising page. “Their parents aren’t allowed to communicate with them while in custody. The government hasn’t set up a system to reunite separated parents and children if one or both are ultimately released. In many cases, parents have been deported without their children — sometimes, young children are deported without their parents.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more
