Brian Baker, vicepresidente del Comité Legislativo Especial sobre el Matrimonio. “Esa resolución comenzó un diálogo de 39 años acerca de qué aspecto tendría ese pleno e igual derecho. El diálogo ha sido difícil para muchos y doloroso para muchos”.Las resoluciones A054 y A036 representaron compromisos a los que se llegaron después de devota consideración y conversación dentro del comité legislativo, y luego la Cámara de Obispos le dio cabida a todo el mundo, dijo Baker. “Sé que la mayoría de ustedes encontrará algo en las resoluciones … que le disguste y con lo que discrepe”, señaló, pidiéndoles a los diputados “que miraran a través de las lentes de cómo este compromiso le dio cabida a otras personas”.Los diputados rechazaron un intento de enmendar cada una de las resoluciones. Luego de unos 20 minutos de debate por resolución, cada resolución fue aprobada en un voto por órdenes. La A054 fue aprobada 94 a 12 con dos diputaciones divididas en el orden clerical y 90-11-3 en el orden de los laicos. La A036 fue aprobada por 85-15-6 en el orden clerical y 88-12-6 en el orden de los laicos.Además de autorizar dos nueva liturgias matrimoniales, la A054 aprueba también el continuo uso de “El testimonio y la bendición de un pacto de por vida” que aparece en Recursos litúrgicos I, que la Convención General aprobó para uso provisional en 2012 “bajo la dirección y con la autorización del obispo que ejerza la autoridad eclesiástica”.A principios de la semana, los obispos dividieron, para fines del debate, la porción de la A054 que trata del rito existente de la que aborda las nuevas liturgias, votando finalmente la aprobación de ambas porciones. Aprobaron la A036 en una votación de viva voz, con 129 a favor, 26 en contra y cinco abstenciones.“En mi primera Convención General en 1991, no creo haber soñado jamás que habríamos de tener tal resolución ante nosotros”, dijo Bruce Garneer, diputado de Atlanta al tiempo de que se iniciara el debate sobre la A054. “Vine a Salt Lake City como un ciudadano de segunda clase en mi nación y en mi Iglesia y espero irme de aquí como un ciudadano de primera clase en ambas”.Entre las voces disidentes estuvo la de Holden Holsinger, de la Diócesis de Michigan Oriental y miembro de la Presencia Oficial de la Juventud, quien instó a rechazar la resolución “a fin de mantener la unidad de la Iglesia”.Las dos nuevas liturgias, “El testimonio y bendición de un matrimonio” y “La celebración y bendición de un matrimonio 2” de Recursos litúrgicos 1: te bendeciré y serás una bendición, [versión] revisada y ampliada 2015, de los materiales suplementarios de la Comisión Permanente sobre Liturgia y Música que aparecen en el Libro Azul, están autorizadas a usarse a partir de este Adviento. Esos ritos ofrecen la opción de usar “mujer” “marido”, “persona” y “cónyuge”, haciéndolas de este modo aplicables a todas las parejas. Las liturgias pueden encontrarse en las páginas -151 aquí, de los materiales proporcionados a la Convención por la comisión permanente, incluido uno de ellos rechazado por los obispos en sus deliberaciones.La A054 estipula: “Los obispos que ejerzan autoridad eclesiástica o, donde fuere apropiado, supervisión eclesiástica, facilitarán que todas las parejas que pidan casarse en esta Iglesia tengan acceso a estas liturgias. El uso experimental sólo estará disponible a discreción y con permiso del obispo diocesano”.La resolución dice también que “los obispos pueden continuar ofreciendo generosa respuesta pastoral a las necesidades de los miembros de esta Iglesia”. Durante la discusión en su cámara, los obispos dijeron que esta [cláusula] tenía la intención de responder a situaciones de obispos en jurisdicciones fuera de Estados Unidos, tales como Italia y países de la IX Provincia, donde los matrimonios entre personas del mismo sexo seguían siendo ilegales.Ambas resoluciones dicen que los clérigos conservan el derecho canónico de rehusar oficiar en cualquier boda.La Resolución A036 revisa el Canon I.18 titulado “De la solemnización del Santo Matrimonio” (página 58 de los Cánones de la Iglesia Episcopal aquí). Entre muchas correcciones, elimina las referencias al matrimonio como contraído entre un hombre y una mujer. La primera versión revisada del canon dice ahora que el clérigo “se avendrá a las leyes del Estado que rigen la creación del estado civil del matrimonio, y también a estos cánones en lo concerniente a la solemnización del matrimonio. Los miembros del clero pueden solemnizar un matrimonio usando cualquiera de las formas litúrgicas autorizadas por esta Iglesia”.En conformidad con el canon revisado, las parejas firmarían una declaración de intenciones, que el comité legislativo redactó para respetar las necesidades de parejas donde uno solo de sus miembros sea cristiano.El Rdo. Joseph Howard, de Tennessee, dijo que votaba a favor de la A054 “porque pensaba que era una declaración de honestidad respecto adonde está la Iglesia y porque regulariza lo que estamos haciendo”. Pero se opuso a la A036 “como un voto contra el buen orden porque creo que asume una creencia que aún no ha llegado a estar clara en nuestra Iglesia”.James Steadman, de Pensilvania Noroccidental, citó las palabras de la oración de postcomunión del Libro de Oración Común, y [luego] le dijo a los diputados: “Este es el momento. Usen el valor por el que han estado orando todos estos años y voten a favor de esta resolución”.En otra resolución relacionada con el matrimonio, la Cámara de Diputados aprobó a principios de la semana la Resolución A037, luego de rechazar varias enmiendas, conviniendo con los obispos en continuar la labor del Equipo de Trabajo sobre el Estudio del Matrimonio.La resolución pide a las congregaciones que estudien los materiales elaborados por el Equipo de Trabajo sobre el Matrimonio, los cuales están ahora a disposición de las congregaciones (a partir de la página 9 aquí), para que les ayuden a entender la teología del matrimonio y el largo historial del matrimonio, le dijo Baker a los diputados.Autoriza también la continua labor del equipo de trabajo “porque la tarea no ha concluido”, explicó Baker. [La resolución] invita a la exploración de la diversidad teológica y cultural para llevar adelante la conversación, dijo él, añadiendo que con frecuencia el estudio se ha concentrado en la perspectiva anglooccidental “cuando somos una Iglesia que tiene personas de diferentes naciones”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.

The Wallabies run riot in Rosario with big win over Argentina

first_imgMonday Oct 7, 2013 The Wallabies run riot in Rosario with big win over Argentina The Wallabies surprised everyone by running riot in Rosario, beating Argentina 54-17 to keep Los Pumas winless in the Rugby Championship. Israel Folau scored a hat-trick as Ewen McKenzie’s chargers restored some pride after a disappointing few months. Australia would have dropped to sixth on the IRB World Rankings if they’d lost this one, but an impressive performance away from home helped McKenzie avoid becoming the first Wallabies coach to pick up a Rugby Championship wooden spoon.It was their biggest victory over Argentina in 21 Tests, since they first met in 1979.Fullback Folau picked up three tries and contributed to a few others as the visitors found gaps in the hosts’ defence, with Joe Tomane also looking good with ball in hand.“It’s a real confidence booster for us. We’re very, very happy with the result,” said captain James Horwill. “We’ve been working very hard and it’s good to see some of the things we’ve been working on come off. We’re really pleased to get the result, especially over here in Rosario.”Felipe Contepomi made his farewell after a record 87 Test caps and 651 points, but it wasn’t a game he will remember fondly after being hit off the ball by Rob Simmons, who was yellow carded.“Congratulations to Australia, they came here against the wall and they played great rugby,” said Argentina captain Juan Martin Fernandez Lobbe.The Wallabies have one more big challenge before their overseas tour, as they travel to Dunedin to take on the All Blacks in the final Bledisloe Cup Test in two weeks time.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error The Rugby Championship Related Articles 140 WEEKS AGO Sam Cane suffers broken neck in win over… 305 WEEKS AGO Awesome Argentina upset sloppy Springboks… 305 WEEKS AGO Australia stun New Zealand to win the 2015… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Nestled within swaths of Moonah and tea tree is a new home for a professional couple seeking a seaside retreat in the coastal town of Barwon Heads. The house replaces a former dilapidated cedar cabin and serves as the couple’s primary residence and a holiday home for their three grown children who frequently visit. The form, orientation and materials of the dwelling respond to the extreme coastal conditions that define the site.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerLocated within close proximity to Bass Strait and the mouth of the Barwon River, the building staggers diagonally across the site providing protection from prevailing south-west weather patterns. Dark grey corrugated iron encases the building and provides a backdrop to verdant Moonah, Boobialla and dune scrub. The robust material echoes an Australian vernacular and reflects the workman-like quality of the exterior. Upon entry, the austere external treatment gives way to the warmth and tactility of timber.Save this picture!Ground floor planLight stained timber is used on floors and ceilings to accentuate the horizontal quality of the site; whereas dark stain is applied to vertical surfaces to provide depth and comparison to the external view. In contrast with timber elements, light grey satin render has been applied to blockwork walls to allow light to bounce deeper into the space.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThese walls run north to south stabilizing the internal environment while also dividing the floor plate into thirds. Apertures have been carefully considered and seek to capture views and frame moments. The outlook towards the sand dunes to south and south-west is afforded by windows that are either puncture or are carved out of the peripheral skin. The home is spatially organized with living spaces to the north and services to the south. The ground floor accommodates the bedrooms for the couple’s children as well as a generous bathroom and rumpus area.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerUpstairs unfolds as a celebration of communal spaces with the kitchen, dining and living areas. Adjacent is the master bedroom which enjoys a wonderful aspect of water, trees and sky. Highly adaptable, the home has been designed to seamlessly open, close, expand and contract to meet the fluctuating needs of the family. Experiences of home and space therefore feel intimate and cozy as well as exuberant and expansive. Joinery is integrated subtly throughout the home and marries seamlessly with timber wall paneling.Save this picture!SectionsA study is tucked in next to a large built-in bookcase in the living space and can be opened up or concealed with sliding doors that align perfectly with the wall above. Stone and porcelain punctuate the uniform timber joinery with limestone benchtops in the kitchen, vanities in the bathrooms as well as a long low-height bench in the living space. To the north, the cladding peels away to expose panoramic views of the abundant protected landscaping beyond.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerThe northern aspect also draws warmth from the sun and allows light to flood into the living spaces. Cross flow ventilation is achieved with the integration of solid ventilation panels that can be controlled within each space ensuring views remain clear and unobstructed. New landscape works restore indigenous vegetation and help blend the edge of the building with the broader site vegetation. The ground has been sculpted in undulating forms to reflect pre-existing conditions and a new raised pool extends out from the dwelling into the tea tree and Moonah.Save this picture!© Rory GardinerProject gallerySee allShow lessWellness Center / D.LIM architectsSelected ProjectsTienda Breathe / MasquespacioSelected Projects Share Australia Barwon Heads House / Lovell Burton ArchitectureSave this projectSaveBarwon Heads House / Lovell Burton ArchitectureSave this picture!© Rory Gardiner+ 27Curated by María Francisca González Share Light Projects Manufacturers: Apaiser, Archclad, Brodware, Cheminees Philippe, Miele, In Good Company Lighting Consultant: Year:  ESD Consultant: CopyAbout this officeLovell Burton ArchitectureOfficeFollow#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBarwon HeadsOn FacebookAustraliaPublished on November 18, 2020Cite: “Barwon Heads House / Lovell Burton Architecture” 18 Nov 2020.

Captioning Awareness Week to highlight need for greater accessibility to the arts

And 54.8% of people with a hearing impairment reported leaving their home in the past week, compared to 80% of disabled people with a mental health impairment.Captioning Awareness Week will include a live subtitled performance of Olivier Award winning play Emilia and a number of renowned shows under the banner of The Shows Must Go On. Live captioned lectures and discussions are also being organised by the British Library, the British Academy and the Royal Society.The campaign is organised by the charity Stagetext, which saw an increase in demand for subtitled performances during the lockdown. In April it provided the subtitling for the Phantom of the Opera, with 2.5 million watching using Stagetext’s subtitles (12.8 million in total watched the performance).Despite an increase in demand for online performances, access remains patchy. According to Action on Hearing Loss, 87% of people with hearing loss have attempted to watch a programme on-demand and found it had no subtitles.center_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Captioning Awareness Week to highlight need for greater accessibility to the arts About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Tanzanian reporter finally freed after seven months

first_img Help by sharing this information “The authorities exacted a high price, because he had to pay an exorbitant sum to get out of a prison he should never have entered. The seven months in detention and the thousands of euros paid for his release are indicative of the enormous pressures on journalists in a country that has seen a constant decline in press freedom in recent years.” Reporters Without Borders (RSF) welcomes Tanzanian journalist Erick Kabendera’s release today after nearly seven months in prison but regrets that he had to plead guilty to charges of money-laundering and tax evasion to be freed. The high price exacted by the authorities is indicative of the steady decline in press freedom in Tanzania, RSF said. Le journaliste Erick Kabdendera est ressorti libre du tribunal de Kisutu en Tanzanie le 24 février 2020. Photo @JamiiForums Organisation A stringer for such renowned media outlets as The Guardian and The East African, Kabendera was arrested on 29 July 2019 on suspicion of having obtained his Tanzanian citizenship fraudulently. Thereafter, the charges against him kept on being changed in a series of hearings because the prosecution was unable to produce supporting evidence.

Everything was done to undermine him. Hearings were repeatedly postponed at the request of the prosecution, which said it needed more time to complete its investigations. Kabendera was not even allowed out of prison to attend his mother’s funeral in December. News Tanzanian media unable to cover Covid-19 epidemic News Reports TanzaniaAfrica Condemning abuses ImprisonedFreedom of expressionPredatorsEconomic pressureJudicial harassment After a charge of “organized economic crime” was finally dropped today, Kabendera obtained his release by paying the equivalent of 40,000 euros in taxes that he had allegedly failed to pay and a fine of 100 euros on the charges of tax evasion and money-laundering to which he pleaded guilty.  His lawyer told RSF that he will have to pay an additional 29,000 euros in allegedly unpaid taxes over the next six months. “We are extremely relieved by this investigative journalist’s release but we continue to maintain that he should never have been imprisoned,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. RSF_en Since 2016, the year after John Magufuli became president, Tanzania has fallen 47 places in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 118th out of 180 countries. Harassment and intimidation of journalists has increased, reporters are often arrested, some media outlets have been suspended and several laws have been adopted that restrict free speech and the freedom to inform. After Azory Gwanda, a reporter for Mwananchi, Tanzania’s leading Swahili-language newspaper, and its English-language edition, The Citizen, went missing in November 2017, the authorities provided no information about his disappearance and no serious investigation was ever conducted.last_img read more
