Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL [Anglican Journal] The signing of the Indian Residential Schools Settlement Agreement in 2003 was a tumultuous experience for the Anglican Church of Canada—one that transformed the church’s relationship with Indigenous peoples and left a lasting legacy, the effects of which are still being felt to this day. The precise meaning of that experience, however, depends on whose voices are heard.On July 11, the 42nd General Synod passed a resolution acknowledging receipt of a “Lessons Learned” report, along with its executive summary. The resolution encourages all levels of the church to read the documents and to “take action on their recommendations for ongoing reconciliation work both within the Anglican Church and more broadly.”Read the full article here.

The ‘House That Rains Light’ re-imagines dappled shade under the trees, informal kids play nooks, gardens with flowers, birds and butterflies, all lost to rapid urbanization, while being confined to a tight plot within a typical residential layout.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasOwners, a young couple with their two kids, wanted a house that broke free from conventions, displaying a sense of individuality and character in the spaces that enveloped them, without being a burden on their simple ways of living. They also hoped the building would transcend the small footprint on site and become a multi spatial/sensory experience for their kids to grow up in. Save this picture!Roof Plan ViewSave this picture!© Praveen MohandasStereotypes were broken throughout in design, and start right from the entry by avoiding the typical compound wall and gate towards the road. The shaded front yard becomes the parking area, a sit-out and a play area that spills out onto the relatively deserted road when the kids are in a mood for football or cricket, with their friends from the neighborhood, and a much larger space is needed. A variety of flowering creepers and climbing vegetables grown onto three large frames fixed on the building becomes the extension of the much needed garden on this tight plot while providing shade and privacy to the house.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe front door of this biophilic house opens into a spread out volume that includes clearly defined spaces such as the living, dining, kitchen, a bedroom that can be closed when necessary and several landscape pockets in between them lit by a series of skylights from above. This open layout, that creates a sense of spaciousness in the otherwise small footprint of the building, becomes yet another playground for the kids. The kitchen, though kept private from the entry, extends into the dining to form a multipurpose counter and a study table for the couple who occasionally works from home. A shared toilet accessed from the wash area tucked under the stairs and the bedroom remains the only closed space in the ground floor.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasSave this picture!Section CCThe first floor has an open family space with two bedrooms, a common toilet and a balcony accessed directly from it. The sky-lit courts connect the volumes vertically and horizontally. Birds and butterflies flutter around the seasonal flowers on the green wall, abutting the large external openings of this floor that filter air and harsh sunlight as well as provide security and privacy. Waking up to simple pleasures of bird songs and various colors, the inhabitants find each day a wonder.Save this picture!© Praveen MohandasStrategically positioned windows, considering the seasonal shift of wind, ensure cross ventilation throughout the year. The three sky-lit vertical volumes, the two landscape voids and the staircase shaft, that connects to the clerestory windows at the top, facilitates stack effect and helps control the internal temperature during the hot summers of the tropical south. Streaks of sunlight and moonlight that rain down the skylight change seasonally in length and intensity, making the interiors dynamic throughout the year. The large green walls, that define the façade, extend and cover one third the roof to form shaded pockets on the terrace suitable for a siesta or an evening of barbecue and merriment with friends and family.Save this picture!First Floor Plan ViewSave this picture!© Praveen MohandasThe materiality of the built structure creates a neutral backdrop for the burst of bright colors thematically positioned throughout the house by means of furniture, soft furnishings, décor and patterns in the flooring.

It is no secret that violence and murder committed by racists, xenophobes and outright Nazis in this country has been on the rise — and not just since the 2016 election of Donald Trump.In June 2015, white supremacist Dylann Roof gunned down nine African Americans in a church in Charleston, S.C. It was not an isolated incident. Nor was the Nazi rally of August 2017 in Charlottesville, Va., when a white racist drove his car into a multinational crowd of protesters, injuring many and killing a white woman protester.Armed militia groups, which in the past have boasted of killing migrants, now say they are heading to the southern U.S. border to stop the caravan of Central American refugees that is trying to reach the U.S. These racist vigilantes will join 5,000 U.S. troops Washington is sending there to intercept Honduran families fleeing poverty and violence. And why are the Hondurans leaving their homeland? Because a U.S.-backed right-wing coup in Honduras in 2009 has made their lives unbearable.And just this Oct. 24, a heavily armed white racist shot and killed two Black people in a Kroger’s supermarket near Jeffersontown, Ky., after he had failed to gain entrance to a nearby Black church with 70 people inside.It is in this political climate of racist, fascist violence and scapegoating — which has been encouraged over and over again by the pronouncements of capitalist politicians, from Trump on down — that an attacker entered the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh on Oct. 27 and killed 11 Jewish people, most of them elderly. The accused shooter, Robert Bowers, reportedly told police he “wanted all Jews to die.”Fascism is the most extreme form of imperialist ideology and practice that justifies any crime in pursuit of world domination. Anti-Semitism has been integral to fascist ideology for nearly a century, along with the myth of white Christian “superiority.” Anti-Semitism is also part of the creed of the Ku Klux Klan and other white supremacist groups.Progressive Jews vs. ZionismZionist politicians invoke the horrors of the German Nazis’ extermination of Jewish people to justify their own violent expulsion of Palestinian people from their homes to create the state of Israel.This was made clear when Naftali Bennett, an official envoy of the Israeli government, rushed to Pittsburgh to speak at events commemorating the heinous murders of Jewish people there. He equated the anti-Semitism of U.S. fascists with the liberation struggle led by the Palestinian organization Hamas.But many Jewish people do not buy into this scapegoating logic and are in solidarity with the Palestinian people. A vigil protesting Bennett’s presence was held a few blocks away from where he spoke. It was organized by IfNotNow, a group of Jewish people opposed to Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land.Addressing the vigil, Moriah Ella Mason, a Pittsburgh activist with IfNotNow, said: “Tonight our Pittsburgh Jewish community heard from Naftali Bennett, the far-right, racist Israeli politician whose party has openly advocated for ethnic cleansing, described African migrants as ‘infiltrators,’ and bragged about killing Arabs. These are the same types of policies and rhetoric espoused by Trump, and the same types of policies and rhetoric that have unleashed violence against my community.” (Haaretz, Oct. 29)When Trump the next day announced he was going to Pittsburgh, at least 35,000 people signed an open letter from progressive Jewish leaders, telling him: “For the past three years your words and your policies have emboldened a growing white nationalist movement. You yourself called the murderer evil, but yesterday’s violence is the direct culmination of your influence. … Our Jewish community is not the only group you have targeted. You have also deliberately undermined the safety of people of color, Muslims, LGBTQ people, and people with disabilities. Yesterday’s massacre is not the first act of terror you incited against a minority group in our country.”Marcy on the KlanThe largest extralegal terrorist organization to function in the U.S. has historically been the Ku Klux Klan, originally an instrument of the ruling class in the South to virtually re-enslave Black people after Reconstruction ended. The Klan, like today’s Nazis, flourished under the patronage of the rich.In 1981, after the election of Ronald Reagan, the Klan was making a resurgence. Sam Marcy, founder of Workers World Party, wrote an article in this paper on Jan. 25, 1981, titled “Neo-fascism in the 1980s: Where It Comes From.” We think the following excerpts are as relevant today as then:“The Nazi-KKK menace in the U.S. is a symptom of a profoundly significant disease which has become congenital to the entire social system of capitalist exploitation and oppression.“If the growth of the KKK and the Nazis were an isolated phenomenon divorced from the degenerative effects of monopoly capitalism, if these groups had no ties to and were not supported, encouraged, and promoted by formidable sections of the ruling class, they would be merely a sterile and stagnant combination of racist thugs. … But that is not at all the case.“The growth of fascism everywhere has been securely tied to big business; that is its lifeline. …“The two most formidable and preponderant elements in the capitalist establishment — Big Oil, that untrammeled octopus which pervades every nook and corner of social existence in the country, and the unbridled military — are the most prone to promote lawlessness and extra-legal, extra-parliamentary, and paramilitary force to gain their ends. They, together with the military-industrial complex, are the very infrastructure of contemporary capitalist society. …“It is they who finance the growth of a thousand-and-one single-issue reactionary organizations and who cannot but look benignly upon and covertly finance KKK and neo-Nazi thugs. To them it is just one more covert operation which for public purpose is out-of-bounds of the legal framework of the capitalist government.“The array of giant multinational corporations that compose the monopolist bourgeoisie are all connected in one way or another with the military and Big Oil. …“The struggle against fascism, which is only in its embryonic form at the moment, must entail the perspective of involving the broadest social forces of present-day society in the struggle against capitalism. Capitalism is the fountainhead of political reaction in general and of KKK and neo-Nazi terror in particular.“It is impossible to conduct a consistent anti-fascist policy unless one takes into account the key and decisive factor in overwhelming and destroying the fascist menace; it is the working class, the oppressed people and their allies.“There can be no substitute, however one tries, for involving the broadest masses of workers and oppressed to overwhelm the fascist threat.”(Full article: tinyurl.com/yaadkjsn)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Based on this information, the police registered the aforesaid FIR against the petitioner. The Accused was booked under Section 377 of Indian Penal Code, 1860 (IPC) and was arrested on 7th August, 2020.Earlier, the petitioner had filed a petition under Section 439 CrPC before the concerned Sessions Judge. However, vide order dated 5.9.2020 the Sessions Judge, Chamba Division, Chamba, HP, dismissed his petition.Court’s observationsRelying on the Apex Court’s ruling in the case of Gurbaksh Singh Sibbia and others v. State of Punjab, 1980 (2) SCC 565, the Court said that the bail decision must enter the cumulative effect of the variety of circumstances justifying the grant or refusal of bailIn this context, the Court observed,”Although the allegations against the petitioner are grave but this Court cannot lose the sight of the fact that the petitioner was not employed as a servant by the complainant and thus his access to the cowshed could not have been easily noticed in the morning and secondly that he is a married man with his wife residing with him.Further, the Court remarked,”There is no allegation of any criminal history including sexual offence depicting pervert mind. These factors, without extending them further, make out a case for bail.”Further, the Court said that the analysis of entire evidence does not justify further incarceration of the accused, nor is going to achieve any significant purpose.Thus, without commenting on the merits of the case, the stage of the investigation and the period of incarceration already undergone, the Court stated that case for bail was made out.Case title – Jai Ram v.

Alexander Gerst/Twitter(NEWPORT, N.C.) — Hurricane Florence, a dangerous Category 3 storm, is expected to bring catastrophic flooding to the Southeast and may dump as much as 40 inches of rain in North Carolina alone.The rainfall could be historic and the flooding unprecedented, the National Weather Service office in Newport, North Carolina, warned Wednesday.“This will likely be the storm of a lifetime for portions of the Carolina coast, and that’s saying a lot given the impacts we’ve seen from Hurricanes Diana, Hugo, Fran, Bonnie, Floyd, and Matthew,” according to one National Weather Service meteorologist in Wilmington, North Carolina. “I can’t emphasize enough the potential for unbelievable damage from wind, storm surge, and inland flooding with this storm.”With the storm not making landfall until at least Friday, residents have more time to evacuate and prepare.Here is the latest:— Overnight the storm shifted south and Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal on Wednesday issued an emergency declaration for all counties.— The coast of the Carolinas will begin to feel Florence’s wrath Wednesday night or Thursday morning with gusty winds and increasing surf.— There’s a chance of tornadoes starting Thursday as the storm meanders near or over the Carolinas.— Florence is forecast to stall near the coastline late Thursday night through Saturday morning. It may drift around the South Carolina/North Carolina border for about 24 to 36 hours.— Regardless of where the storm makes landfall, the impact will be extreme for the Southeast.— Hurricane conditions are expected late Thursday night into Saturday morning.— The life-threatening rain may last for days, flooding tens of thousands of structures, North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper said Wednesday.— Thousands of people are already in shelters, Cooper said.Dangerous storm surgeFlorence will also bring life-threatening storm surge, said Brock Long, administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency.“This is going to be a big hit with storm surge at the coast,” he told “Good Morning America” Wednesday. “People do not live and survive to tell the tale about what their experience is like with storm surge. It’s the most deadly part of the hurricane that comes in, it causes the most amount of destruction.”Trump says government is ‘supplied and ready’President Donald Trump wrote on Twitter that the federal government is “supplied and ready.”In a video message Trump also implored residents to “get out of the storm’s way.”“They say it’s about as big as they’ve seen coming to this country — and certainly to the East Coast — as they’ve ever seen,” he said. “We’re fully prepared — food, medical, everything you can imagine. We are ready but, despite that, bad things can happen when you’re talking about a storm this size. It’s called Mother Nature. You never know, but we know.”Residents and visitors flee the coastAs many as 1.7 million people have been ordered to evacuate in South Carolina, North Carolina and Virginia.“Today is your last day to get out of the areas that have been placed under evacuation orders,” FEMA’s Long said. “If you don’t do it now, your time is going to be running out. And once the impacts of this storm start to come in, it’s going to be very difficult for first responders to get to you.”Many people were already on the road Tuesday.“If they say leave, leave,” said Jennifer Forte, who was in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, on Tuesday and headed toward Greenville. “And my job is closed. I work for the government, they’ve closed. The school’s closed until Friday, so there’s no reason to stay, really.”Cooper, the governor of North Carolina, cautioned that high winds and floodwaters could knock power out “for several days if not longer.”Up to 3 million of Duke Energy’s 4 million Carolina customers could experience outages, the company said.“We’ll be asking people to prepare their emergency kit,” Cooper said. “Get food, water. Medications they may need. Pull together their important documents.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

HR professionals have given a cautious welcome to Government proposals aimedat easing recruitment problems in key areas including nursing and teaching.The Government’s Housing Green Paper proposes offering interest free top-uploans to prevent staff in areas where there are shortages being priced out ofthe booming housing market.Lew Swift, HR director at Aintree Hospital Trust, said if implemented, theproposals would have greatest impact in London.He said nurses in the capital are more likely to buy property because theycan move jobs without also moving home.”For some time we have known that if you were able to offeraccommodation or subsidised rent then it would be an inducement to staff.”I would not pooh pooh the idea. My only reservation is that nursesgenerally tend to move to other parts of the country before they have had achance to buy property. So I think it might have a limited application.”
