Photo: Andrew Cooley[Anglican Journal] Every day at noon, Edgardo Sasuman, sacristan for St. James Episcopal Church in Florence, Italy, rings the church’s bells. It’s a call of solidarity and love from a church that is on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis.St. James has managed to offer online services on Sundays and Wednesdays and hopes to start video Bible study, as well as keeping in touch with vulnerable parishioners. That’s not an easy task in a country where people are required to stay in their homes, a lockdown that became even tighter on March 22.“I am being more intentional in my communication to people back in the United States to encourage them, but also to urge them to embrace the best practices of social distancing and hygiene,” says the Rev. Andrew Cooley, interim rector at St. James, when asked how the outbreak of COVID-19 has affected his work. “I am speaking to them from their future of 10 to 14 days. I also believe that the churches in Europe might be better able to deal with the imposed isolation, as we are generally more isolated from each other and have developed better dependence on virtual connections.”Even before Anglican and Episcopal churches in North America began having to respond to the coronavirus, the 21 churches and missions of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe—part of the U.S.-based Episcopal Church—were dealing with shuttered doors, widespread lockdowns and limited public transportation. Many have taken God’s message to parishioners in online and other ways.“We are not without the church—not ever,” the Rt. Rev. Mark Edington, bishop-in-charge of the convocation, wrote to parishioners in Europe. “We have always said, and it is no less true for our saying it, that the church is the people of God, and not the house in which they dwell; and so we are still the church, even if we cannot be in the church.”In that vein, Edington compiled a Convocation Companion e-book of prayers and devotions based on the Daily Office readings from March 22 to April 17, 2020, with contributions from lay and clergy leaders across the continent. It’s called Prayers for Days of Isolation.In Germany, even before the government banned religious services and other gatherings, the Anglican/Episcopal Church of St. Augustine of Canterbury in Wiesbaden suspended services on March 15. It was following the guidelines of the Old Catholic Church and some Protestant regions and Catholic dioceses. The Sunday service is broadcast on Facebook, YouTube and the church’s website; other weekday services and Bible study are available through Zoom.“One of the many blessings to come out of this crisis. I was so glad to receive the service,” one parishioner wrote on the church’s Facebook page.In addition, the church has put together a phone list of people in the vulnerable age group and those living alone that clergy and vestry will contact by phone at least one or two times a week. And volunteers are manning an “errand ministry,” to help those who feel unable to leave their homes with things like shopping and post office runs, said the Rev. Christopher Easthill, rector of St. Augustine’s and president of the Convocation’s Council of Advice. He assures the services with the Rev. Steve McPeek and lay leaders.Canceling live services was a difficult decision, Easthill told parishioners. But it needed to be done in the context of responsibility for one another.“More than ever at this time let us remember and be strengthened by the three Christian virtues: Faith — trust in a God who is with us especially in crises; Hope — that this will soon be contained and in the resurrection promise; Charity — showing active love for one another, sure in the knowledge of God’s love for us,” he said in a message to parishioners.At the American Cathedral of the Holy Trinity in Paris, the Very Rev. Lucinda Laird, dean, and the Rev. Linda Grenz, an interim assistant, both resident in the cathedral complex, are holding the fort. France is in near-total lockdown, so few others can enter the building. With Grenz’s husband, Delbert Glover, as lay reader and youth coordinator Cian Grourke as cameraman, they are holding livestreamed Sunday services and morning prayer on weekdays.Evening Compline services are available on the cathedral’s YouTube Channel and via the website. Bible study is also being organized, as is pastoral care.“We will make sure we are there for each other,” Laird said in a video message on the Facebook page. “The more important thing is to remind you that we are Christians…. Now is the time to be what we are called to be, to shine forth and help others find their faith.”— Anne Swardson, a former journalist for The Washington Post and Bloomberg News, is a parishioner at the American Cathedral in Paris and a former president of the Council of Advice of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.

The Barghouti House is located in Dabuq, which is a residential district to the west of Amman with dense vegetation of native oak trees. Over the past two decades Dabuq has witnessed a spiraling mass development that has resulted in extensive environmental damage to perhaps the only forested area of Amman.Save this picture!© Pino MusiSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Pino MusiThe site is a rectangular lot of land with a diagonal slope. The footprint is skewed in relation to the land perimeter to align itself with the direction of the slope and to take advantage of most of the open space that has no trees.Save this picture!© Pino MusiSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Sosthen HennekamThe house consists of two separate parts connected by a roof. The two parts allow and frame a view to the landscape of the hills across the site from the entry point. The separation in mass adheres to a requirement, which calls for separating the guest quarters from the rest of the house.Save this picture!© Pino MusiThe house consists of three floors, yet each level has a direct connection to the land or garden. Such connections result from embedding the first two levels of the house within the land to conform to its topographic levels and to mitigate the effect of scale the three floors.Save this picture!© Pino MusiThe main arrival space is at the highest part of the land and it is defined by the L-shape plan of the upper third level of the house. This part of the house is entirely closed with no fenestrations apart from the garage and main entry of the house, which is a space carved out from the landscape and accessed by stairs. This point of entry opens to the sky through the roof connection and to the landscape across through the interior space.Save this picture!© Pino MusiSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Pino MusiThe massing of the project consists of a series of thick concrete slabs that run parallel to one another and hover over a deep recessed space that contain all the window fenestrations, planter beds and circulation paths and stairs. This type of massing heightens the material weight of the project by means of the restricting of the visible elements of the project to a composition of monolithic slabs that interact and stand in contrast to the landscape.Save this picture!© Pino MusiThe architecture though seemingly quite severe and angular in expression, maintains a more delicate or softer quality that is achieved by the hand-sanded surface of the concrete. This technique produces an array of uneven undulating surfaces that begin to make more sculptural reference to the surrounding landscape and the ground the house sits on.Save this picture!© Pino MusiThis controlled imperfection allows the project to also be in line with the local culture of construction, which still highly depends on low-technology and the work of specialized craftsmen.Save this picture!© Sosthen HennekamProject gallerySee allShow less23 Dwellings / MUOTOSelected ProjectsAireys House / Byrne ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Jordan CopyHouses•Amman, Jordan Year: Houses Architects: Sahel AlHiyari Architects Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/939623/k-barghouti-house-sahel-alhiyari-architects Clipboard CopyAbout this officeSahel AlHiyari ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmmanOn FacebookJordanPublished on May 19, 2020Cite: “K.

Online donationsThe platform will also handle online donations for participating charities, offering a card and transaction fee of just 1.8%. Turner contrasts this the fees charged by some online giving platforms.Specifically the fee is 1.8% of the donated sum plus 20p. The money is handled by payment service Mangopay. This helps ensure that iBuy2Give never have access to the charitable donation: only the recipient charity can access it via its Mangopay Wallet. Mangopay charge 45p when you make a withdrawal from your Mangopay Wallet.The money from a direct donation is available immediately for withdrawal by the charity. Donations generated through a purchase are available for withdrawal after 30 days. This is to ensure that the item has been delivered and that there are no return issues.The company plans to automate Gift Aid reclaims on behalf of charities for donations it handles.IBuy2Give is currently inviting charities and good causes to register with the site.

The purchase happens on the iBuy2Give site, rather than on the retailer’s.A promotional video for the site, fronted by TV presenter Chris Tarrant, explains: “Other sites that let you fundraise when a product is purchased send your supporters off to the retailer’s website and they get a smaller affiliate commission. But when you buy an item from our shop… we charge the retailer a fee which is comparable to those of eBay and Amazon. This means we can give you up to 600% more on every product sold”.It is from this fee that iBuy2Give makes a donation to the good cause or charity chosen by the shopper. iBuy2Give to set up online marketplace to raise funds for charities About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The recommendation is to foster communication and collaboration to strengthen coexistence among farmers. Farm Bureau President Bob Stallman says a hallmark of U.S. agriculture for decades has been the ability of farmers to pursue innovation, utilize diverse cropping systems and respond to consumer demand for high-value, identity-preserved and specialty crops. Contrary to those who say there is widespread disagreement when it comes to coexistence and agricultural biotechnology – Stallman says the diversity and vitality of the industry wouldn’t be possible if not for the past success of coexistence or simply being a good neighbor.While the U.S. regulatory framework is based on a scientific evaluation of safety and risk – Stallman says the emergence of premium markets for crops that exclude the use of approved biotechnology as a method of production are purely market-driven. He says one fundamental principle has applied throughout the history of diverse cropping systems – the farmer who derives value from a premium, differentiated crop accepts responsibility for implementing the production practices necessary to preserve the value of that crop. In all examples of identity-preserved crop production – he says the additional costs of production and the costs associated with accepting additional risk are offset by higher prices. Stallman says the AC21 report didn’t identify or find evidence of significant legal disputes among farmers related to coexistence or cases of farmers being threatened legally for unintentional gene flow. He says any purported war in agriculture doesn’t reflect facts and is merely the product of an activist agenda that doesn’t reflect the best interest of farmers or American agriculture.ASA Says Current Coexistence Efforts are WorkingAmerican Soybean Association President Ray Gaesser is urging USDA to take a practical and scientific approach to enhancing agricultural coexistence. In comments submitted to USDA this week – the Iowa farmer also urged USDA to consider the already extensive work on coexistence underway in the industry. In Gaesser’s comments – ASA reinforced its position that there’s no real evidence current efforts to achieve coexistence between neighboring producers aren’t working. The comments also pointed to the failure of the Advisory Committee on Biotechnology and the 21st Century Agriculture to identify any data that shows contamination between IP, conventional and organic farming has occurred or is a significant problem warranting additional steps beyond enhanced communication and education. Gaesser said farmers of many kinds of different cropping systems have a long and successful history of coexistence. He noted some farmers grow crops for high-quality seed production, some grow specialty varieties within conventional crops, some grow ornamentals or vegetables and others grow non-GMO and organic crops. Gaesser said all require that the grower hoping to raise one of these premium crops take prudent management steps and communicate with neighbors. He said ASA has seen no data to suggest that such management and communication isn’t working.Source: NAFB News Service SHARE Facebook Twitter SHARE Home Indiana Agriculture News Farm Bureau Supports Move to Strengthen Coexistence Among Farmers By Andy Eubank – Mar 5, 2014
365 additional cases of Covid-19 in Republic WhatsApp Man arrested on suspicion of drugs and criminal property offences in Derry Pinterest Google+ The Minister for Public Expenditure and Reform has confirmed that compulsory redundancies are not part of the proposed deal on an extension to the Croke Park agreement.The document was agreed with some public sector unions yesterday and will be published in full today.The Cabinet is being briefed on the document this morning while trade unions will also begin the process of consulting their members on the proposals.They include pay cuts for those earning over 65,000 euro as well as cuts to premium pay.There were concerns that compulsory redundancies were included in the deal in areas where redeployment is not an option.But speaking on his way into his Department this morning, Minister Howlin said this is not the case and he had this message for public sector workers.”If you consider this, swallow hard – I know it’s not easy – and vote for this, we’ll not be coming back again ans we can plan our recovery over the next 3 years” he said.”Hopefully the next time we sit down to discuss pay and conditions with the public servants, it’ll be on the basis of a recovered economy; and we can talk about improvements in pay and conditions – that’s our objective” he added.

Radhakrishnan and Justice Arijit Banerjee further observed,”The primary object of a hospital, be it Government or Private, should be to render healthcare to those who are in need of it.”In fact, primarily two issues were raised by the petitioners in the Public Interest Litigation before the Court. Firstly, the issue was related to the disposal of the dead body of a COVID-19 victim, with due care, respect and dignity.Another issue was related to the admission of COVID-19 patients (whether detected or suspected) to hospitals.The first issue was fully covered by Court’s Judgment delivered in WPA 5479 of 2020 (Vineet Ruia v. The Principal Secretary, Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Govt. of W.B. & Ors.). This particular order was delivered on the same day i.e., on Wednesday (16th September).Asserting that the Right to a decent funeral can also be traced in Article 25 of the Constitution of India, the Calcutta High Court in Vineet Ruia (supra) case ruled that the immediate family members of Covid-19 victims be permitted to perform the funeral rites of the deceased subject to them following certain precautionary guidelines to eliminate/minimize the risk of them becoming infected by the deadly virus which has caused devastation in the form of loss of countless lives across the world.The grievance of the PetitionerThe grievance of the petitioners was that there was no way of knowing as to how many beds for Covid-19 patients are available in the State and Private Hospitals at any given point of time.There is no database in this regard which a person in need may access. Further, the allegation is that in spite of beds being available, hospitals are refusing to admit Covid-19 patients.The Submission of the StateThe Counsel for the State apprised the Court that the State Government has created a database which can be accessed by anybody and which gives all requisite information regarding the availability of beds in the hospitals, admission of COVID-19 patients in the hospitals, discharge of such patients from the hospitals, etc.The Counsel vehemently denied that there has been any case where any Government hospital has denied admission to a COVID-19 patient in spite of the availability of beds.Court’s ObservationThe Court remarked,”The refusal on the part of a hospital to do so, without a valid reason, e.g., non-availability of beds will amount to a culpable breach of the fundamental duty of a medical institution.”Further, the Court said that in case the petitioners have a concrete instance of any hospital denying admission to a COVID-19 patient despite beds being available, the petitioners will be at liberty to draw the same to the notice of The West Bengal Health Regulatory Commission constituted under The West Bengal Clinical Establishments (Registration & Regulation) Act, 2010, which has supervisory powers over the hospitals and medical institutions in the State.”Upon such complaint being made, the said Commission may take action in accordance with the law against the erring hospital as it may think fit and proper”, the Court concluded.Case Details:Case Title: Prithvijoy Das & Anr. v.

A new bread map from Tesco of consumers’ buying habits around the UK explodes some myths about regional tastes.Although white bread is more popular further north and brown bread is more widely bought in the south, Tesco store data reveals that the area with the highest demand for ’upmarket’ bread is Tyneside.Geordies buy more bread with added ingredients, such as wholegrain and cranberry, malted wheat and sunflower, and sunflower and pumpkin seed. Meanwhile residents of Cheltenham – known for its ladies college and Regency town houses – buy the most standard white sliced bread.Tesco bakery category manager Andrew Brocklehurst said that five years ago most people were happy with either a basic white or brown loaf, but tastes now change from area to area.”The diversity of British bread tastes these days is simply astounding and we must now be reckoned to be the world’s bread connoisseurs,” said Brocklehurst. “Travel has become cheaper, especially to Europe, and more people have begun to try out the wide range of breads available on the Continent.”Tesco also found that residents of Edinburgh buy the most Irish soda bread in the UK, while more German rye bread is bought in Manchester than anywhere else. British traditional loaves sell best in northern England with bloomers most popular in Sheffield, Brighton has the biggest bagel- eating population and Bristol residents can’t get enough tortillas.Brocklehurst added: “Britain has a style to suit every age group, taste and occasion.”
After 32 years, Paul Simon’s classic album Graceland is finally getting the dance remix album it deserves. Slated for release on June 1st via Legacy Recordings/Sony Music, Graceland – The Remixes will feature reimagined versions of each of the 1986 record’s 11 tracks from artists like Paul Oakenfold and Thievery Corporation.Groove Armada, Photex, and Joris Vooron are also among the musicians and DJs who contribute to the effort, which was approved by Paul Simon himself. Oakenold took on “Crazy Love, Vol. II”, while Thievery Corporation tackled “Diamonds on the Sole of Her Shoes” and Groove Armada conjured up a very interesting version of “You Can Call Me Al.”Graceland’s title track, on the other hand, was remixed by MK KC Light. It’s one of five tunes from the forthcoming album that have already been released a part of a YouTube playlist that popped up on Simon’s channel this past Friday.Paul Simon – “Graceland (MK & KC Lights Remix)”“What do you say when someone asks you to remix a classic? Well normally, No!” Groove Armada’s Andy Cato said. “It’s a rule we’ve managed to follow for 20 years. Until we got a call about remixing a track from Graceland. Here was an album…which had opened our ears to a new world of sound. We decided to break the rule because we could choose a tune. In [“You Can Call Me Al”] was a horn riff which we’d been dropping in our sets ever since we tried it at Fais Do-Do’s Ballroom in LA back in 1998 and it created an electric moment of dancefloor unity. So the remix wrote itself and our ace-in-the-pack Horn Drop is now public property.”Graceland – The Remixes was helmed by producer Michael Gaiman (aka The Duke of New York), who curated the project. You can check out a tracklist for the compilation below.Graceland – The Remixes tracklist:1. Homeless (Joris Voorn Final Remix)2. Gumboots (Joyce Muniz Remix)3.
