Foto de Paulette E. Martin.[Episcopal News Service] Inscribir a votantes el 14 de agosto en la Iglesia Episcopal San Pablo in Houston fue sólo el comienzo de una asociación entre la Diócesis Episcopal de Texas y Mi Familia Vota para ayudar a [que la gente] salga a votar.Conciencia e interés públicos crecientes, debido acaso a una contenciosa temporada electoral, prendió la iniciativa, según Paulette E. Martin, experta diocesana en comunicaciones .“Las personas quieren participar. Toda la arena política ahora mismo les resulta muy importante”, le dijo ella a Episcopal News Service recientemente.“Quieren ser parte de esto”, añadió Martin. “Concebimos que sería un buen modo de instruir a las personas y de darles herramientas para inscribir a votantes, y alentar a sus familias y amigos a ayudarnos a marcar la diferencia”.En el evento se inscribieron diez personas para votar. A otras las prepararon y les “encargaron” que comenzaran a hacer campaña a favor del voto en las comunidades locales para ayudar a que aún más residentes hicieron oír su voz en las elecciones generales del 8 de noviembre, dijo ella.Al acercarse la fecha límite para la inscripción de votantes en el estado el 11 de octubre, el director de Mi Familia Vota en el estado de Texas, dijo que él espera llegar a otros votantes que se sienten marginados y que puede que no hayan podido participar del proceso en años anteriores.“Las comunidades de habla hispana siempre se sienten indecisas respecto a la participación en el proceso político, porque perciben que ninguno de los partidos políticos representan ciento por ciento sus intereses”, apuntó Duarte.“Perciben que uno refleja su posición respecto al aborto, mientras el otro concuerda con su postura sobre la inmigración y la aceptación y criterios sobre la diversidad. Siempre están divididos entre estas opciones y a veces eso conduce a la parálisis”.No así este año, dijo él.“Este año en particular, la campaña presidencial ha estado tan polarizada, que eso les ha llevado a querer participar”.Mi Familia Vota es una organización nacional sin fines de lucro que tiene oficinas en Arizona, Nevada, California, Colorado, Florida y Texas y que “busca unir a la comunidad latina y sus aliados para promover la justicia social y económica mediante una mayor participación cívica”, dijo Duarte.Duarte dijo que la asociación de Mi Familia Vota y la Diócesis Episcopal de Texas representa la primera vez “en cinco años de hacer esto, que una iglesia se me acerca realmente para que me asocie con ellos. Duarte ya está planeando una subsecuente actividad de inscripción de votantes con la diócesis.“Trabajamos muchísimo con las iglesias, pero usualmente tenemos que ir y convencerles de que participen, y eso siempre es muy difícil”.Las iglesias a veces se muestran caprichosas tocante a la participación política porque, como organizaciones sin fines de lucro, deben atenerse a ciertas normas en lo que respecta a las campañas políticas o se arriesgan a perder su condición de [organizaciones] sin fines de lucro de parte de la Superintendencia de Contribuciones (IRS), dijo Martin.Pero el Conjunto de Útiles para la Participación Electoral de la Red Episcopal de Política Pública (EPPN, por su sigla en inglés) “era sencillamente una razón más de los que creíamos que organizar esta campaña sería una buena idea, porque no le decimos a la gente cómo votar, sólo le damos los instrumentos para votar y los instruimos al respecto”, dijo ella.El conjunto de útiles de la EPPN, que se puede obtener en la Internet con directrices y materiales para la participación política de la Iglesia, citan la postura oficial de la Iglesia de que “votar es un acto de mayordomía cristiana” según estos materiales. La pagina web también invita a los episcopales a comprometerse por escrito de que votarán en las elecciones generales del 8 de noviembre.La EPPN “convoca a las congregaciones a participar en un diálogo sobre asuntos de política pública, auspiciar la inscripción de votantes y fomentar campañas de instrucción al respecto, así como abogar por la protección de los derechos al voto”.“Hay muchísimas cosas productivas y buenas que las iglesias podrían hacer en el proceso político que no les pondrían en conflicto con su estatus de instituciones sin fines de lucro”, conviene Julie Anderson, auditora del Condado de Pierce, en Washington.A principios de este año, Anderson asistió a un evento de adiestramiento e inscripción electoral en la iglesia episcopal de la Sagrada Familia de Jesús [Holy Family of Jesus] en Tacoma, Washington.Unos 70 camboyanos de la tercera edad se inscribieron para votar en esa actividad. Anderson dijo a ENS que ella ha estado trabajando con la Asociación de Mujeres Coreanas y su Centro de Servicio Cultural Indochino, que tiene su sede en los terrenos de la iglesia, para ayudar a capacitar a los votantes.“Gracias a ellas (la Asociación de Mujeres Coreanas), visité casi todos sus sitios de comidas para ancianos e inscribí a votantes”.Las iglesias están especialmente preparadas para ayudar en tales empeños porque son “centros comunitarios”, dijo Anderson. “Son lugares en que la gente se reúne y muchas iglesias ya están activamente dedicadas a usar sus recursos e instalaciones para llegar a las poblaciones marginales”.Tal participación cívica hasta podría llegar a incluir foros de candidatos “en la medida en que estén bien equilibrados y que todos los candidatos tengan una oportunidad de participar, sin que resulten distorsionados en modo alguno”.Otras agrupaciones de carácter religioso también están creando asociaciones sobre derechos del votante. La Red Nacional PICO inauguró el 4 de agosto —luego de la clausura de las convenciones nacionales republicana y demócrata— “Todos Votamos”, un programa multirreligioso y multirracial que promueve la instrucción del votante y la participación electoral.“Creemos que toda persona de fe debe ejercer su derecho al voto como un acto de fe en la cocreación de la amada comunidad que todos deseamos [se establezca] aquí en la tierra, dijo la obispa Dwayne Royster, directora política de PICO en un comunicado de prensa en la Red.“Vamos a entrenar unos 15.000 voluntarios y líderes dentro de nuestras federaciones y organizaciones aliadas para salir y hacer el trabajo de tocar a las puertas y de tener conversaciones telefónicas” para garantizar que la gente vota en esta temporada.La campaña multirreligiosa nacional —y estatal— incluye a representantes de iglesias y otras organizaciones, entre ellas la Iglesia Unida de Cristo, el Centro de Acción Religiosa del Judaísmo Reformado (RAC, por su sigla en inglés), la Iglesia Metodista Episcopal Africana, Pan para el Mundo, Residentes Temporales (Sojourners) y otras agrupaciones.Barbara Weinstein, directora asociada del RAC, también citaba en el comunicado de prensa la preocupación por el intento de marginar a votantes mediante el “silenciamiento sistemático de voces individuales y comunitarias en las urnas en la forma de cierre de colegios electorales, limitaciones en la votación anticipada y leyes onerosas sobre documentos de identidad del votante”.Al menos 10 estados que representan colectivamente más de 80 millones de personas han intentado poner en vigor leyes electorales restrictivas que van desde “nuevos obstáculos para la inscripción hasta requisitos de identificación del votante más estrictos, pasando por restricciones en la votación anticipada”, según la página web de la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles.El 15 de agosto, el gobernador de Carolina del Norte dijo que le pediría al Tribunal Supremo de EE.UU. que reimponga la ley del documento de identificación del votante y otras medidas restrictivas aprobadas por la asamblea estatal en 2013 y abrogadas por un tribunal federal de circuito en julio [de este año]. Algunas iglesias episcopales en Carolina del Norte se están esforzando, como lo han hecho tradicionalmente, para garantizar que los votantes tengan una información precisa.El obispo de Misurí, Wayne Smith, en un comunicado que publicó en la Internet el 15 de agosto, se mostró esperanzado por la derrota de una enmienda constitucional del estado que se ha propuesto y que podría exigir que los electores presentaran “una identificación válida con foto emitida por el estado” para poder votar.“La propuesta le parece bastante justa a muchos, puesto que todo el mundo tiene un documento de identidad con foto, o así dicen”, según Smith. “De hecho, hay más [personas] sin documentos de identidad de lo que uno podría pensar. Un sesenta y cuatro por ciento de los residentes de EE.UU. no tienen pasaporte, la segunda forma más común de identificación aceptable. El dieciocho por ciento no tiene licencia de conducir, la más común de todas las formas. Este último número representa el sector más vulnerable a la supresión del elector. Como grupo, son más viejos, más pobres y con más probabilidades de ser diferentes a los de descendencia europea”.Smith añadió que desde 2005, ha habido 17 condenas [por violación] de las leyes electorales en Misurí. “Cuanto mayor es la pobreza del electorado, tanto más fácil resulta suprimir el voto”.El Rdo. Joseph Pae, rector de la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints] en Great Neck, Nueva York, dijo que espera repetir una campaña para la inscripción electoral que tuviera lugar antes de la elección primaria del 19 de abril.La asociación por la Habilitación Cívica Coreanoamericana auspició la campaña e inscribió a unas 10 personas que votaban por primera vez, afirmó.“En el pasado, la comunidad coreana no había estado activa ni se había inscrito para votar. Hemos estado tratando de crear una mayor conciencia electoral”, dijo Pae a ENS. La reunión conllevó conversaciones neutrales e instrucción del votante, así como ayuda para rellenar los formularios de inscripción.“Algunas personas se mostraban dudosas antes, pero apreciaron el poder asistir a un foro en la iglesia”, señaló él.En California, donde casi 650.000 nuevos votantes se inscribieron en las seis semanas previas a la fecha límite del 23 de mayo para la elección primaria del estado, la iglesia de Todos los Santos facilita una inscripción para votantes todos los domingos durante la temporada electoral.“Invitamos a la Liga de las Mujeres Electoras a montar una mesa después de nuestros oficios y de hacer las inscripciones que fueran necesarias”, dijo Juliana Serrano, directora de paz y justicia.Los 3.000 miembros de una iglesia de Pasadena se vieron sujetos al escrutinio de la Superintendencia de Contribuciones (IRS) en 2004 luego de que su antiguo rector, el Rdo. George Regas, predicara un sermón dos días antes de las elecciones de ese año en que imaginaba a Jesús participando en un debate político con los candidatos presidenciales de entonces George W. Bush y John F. Kerry.Regas le dijo a la congregación que “las personas buenas de fe profunda” podían respaldar a cualquier candidato, pero criticó la guerra de Irak y dijo que Jesús le habría dicho a Bush que su estrategia de guerra preventiva en Irak “ha conducido al desastre”.Finalmente, la IRS desestimó su investigación de la iglesia.– La Rda.

Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design

first_imgArchDaily Photographs:  Paul CrosbyText description provided by the architects. The open, permeable design of this house results from the client’s active lifestyle and desire for connectivity to the site from all spaces. Designed for a narrow, wooded, pie-shaped lakefront site, this young family sought to develop outdoor play and garden spaces while celebrating views of the lake. The concept organizes the public and private spaces into two separate wood-clad forms connected by a glass-enclosed breezeway and screen porch.

The wood-clad wings of the house sit on a bluestone “outcropping”, which extends the natural entry grade, grounding the house. A series of bluestone monolith steps extend from the lakeside terrace toward the shore. A folded, dark metal plane wraps the wood wings as walls and roof, creating a sculptural cap of the house. On the west edge of the house, the metal wall is punctuated by dynamic window placement, allowing light in while screening views of the neighbors. Dramatic floor to ceiling windows in the living/dining spaces and master bedroom draw in views of the site and lake, and provide north light. The house engages the site during all seasons and was constructed for $200 per square foot.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbyProject gallerySee allShow lessFixing a Road in Johannesburg: 26’10 South Architects on Informal ArchitectureArticlesInhabitable Slot / Dimos Moysiadis + Ioannis Oikonomou + Xaris TsitsikasArticles Share Houses “COPY” Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design Projects Year:  CopyHouses•St. Paul, United States ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/65376/farquar-lake-residence-altus-architecture-design Clipboard Architects: ALTUS Architecture + Design Area Area of this architecture project Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + DesignSave this projectSaveFarquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design Area:  3360 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2008 Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/65376/farquar-lake-residence-altus-architecture-design Clipboard Save this picture!© Paul Crosby+ 35 Share United States “COPY” CopyAbout this officeALTUS Architecture + DesignOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesSt PaulSt. PaulUnited StatesPublished on June 23, 2010Cite: “Farquar Lake Residence / ALTUS Architecture + Design” 23 Jun 2010.

‘Scare’ prompts Phillips to make healthy changes

I began to really take care of myself.”That “scare” was not the first Phillips had with his heart.“When I was 60 years old, I got where I felt bad all the time,” he said. “I had a physical that included blood work. When I got the results, I found out that I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol and high sugar. I was told to change my diet. I did and, four months later, they were all coming down.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits ‘Scare’ prompts Phillips to make healthy changes By The Penny Hoarder “I was doing all the right things, so I didn’t expect for anything like that to happen,” Phillips said. “But I was fortunate not to have to have surgery and I meant I was going to follow the doctor’s orders.”Phillips continues to have an annual physical and to see his heart doctor each year. His EKGs are good.He realizes that he must lead a healthy lifestyle, not just for a short while but for all the while.He walks a mile or two every day. He exercises. He works in the garden and in the flowerbeds. And, he has changed his way of eating.“I’ve stopped drinking whole milk,” he said. “I don’t eat ice cream. I eat frozen vegetables. No canned vegetables. I eat a lot of stews. I stay away from foods that are harmful to my heart.”Phillips said he has learned a lot about heart health, especially, since his stroke.“I know that my heart health is up to me,” he said. “Diet and exercise are two things that I can do to keep my heart healthy. Those are two things that we can all do and that’s a lot of what the Pike County Heart Walk is all about — awareness of heart disease and what we can do to prevent it is a big part of the winning the battle.”Phillips encourages everyone to participate in the Pike County Heart Walk fundraising campaign, which will culminate on February 19 with the annual Heart Walk at the Troy Recreation Center.National Wear Red Day is February 5 and is the strong awareness arm of the Heart Walk campaign. “Go Red” T-shirts are now available at the Mapping and Appraisal Office downstairs at the Pike County Courthouse in Troy. The shirts come in long and short sleeves. The long sleeve shirts are $15 and $16 and the short sleeves are $10 and $11, depending on the sizes.

The left ventral artery was completely stopped up. But, my heart doctor said the feeders were picking up the blood flow and didn’t recommend surgery.”Phillips’ doctor recommended a regular routine of exercise and he followed the doctor’s order and also began taking a blood thinner.Then, in 2010, Phillips had a stroke.

Wisconsin man ordered to pay $450K to Sandy Hook father for saying son’s death was a hoax

first_imgChris Ryan/iStock(NEW YORK) — A Wisconsin man who claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting never happened was ordered to pay $450,000 to the father of a boy killed in the massacre.Lenny Pozner, whose son, Noah, was killed in the shooting at the Connecticut elementary school that left 26 dead, filed a defamation lawsuit against James Fetzer in November 2018.On Tuesday, a Dane County jury decided on the amount Fetzer must pay Pozner, according to one of Pozner’s attorneys.Fetzer co-authored a book titled Nobody Died at Sandy Hook. In it, he argued that the shooting was a hoax meant to promote gun control. Fetzer has made similar claims on his website.Fetzer maintained his position Tuesday in a statement to ABC News, calling those who died in the shooting “alleged ‘victims’” who had their death certificates fabricated. He also said the law was used against him “as an instrument of oppression.”He plans to appeal.Pozner thanked the jury “for recognizing the pain and terror that Mr. Fetzer has purposefully inflicted on me and on other victims of these horrific mass casualty events, like the Sandy Hook shooting,” according to the Wisconsin State Journal.“Mr. Fetzer has the right to believe that Sandy Hook never happened,” he said. “He has the right to express his ignorance. This award, however, further illustrates the difference between the right of people like Mr. Fetzer to be wrong and the right of victims like myself and my child to be free from defamation, free from harassment and free from the intentional infliction of terror.”Emily Feinstein, one of Pozner’s attorneys, said the team was very pleased with the outcome. She also applauded Pozner’s courage for testifying in the two-day trial, which was attended by many supporters of Fetzer.“I can’t even imagine how hard it was for our client,” Feinstein said.Pozner created his nonprofit, HONR Network, to end the continued harassment he said he faced online from people claiming Sandy Hook was a hoax.“People like Fetzer who hide behind their computer screen and terrorize people grappling with the most unimagined grief were put on notice today … We will continue to stand up for our rights to be free of your attempts to use our tragedy and our pain to line your pockets or gain internet ‘likes,’” he said in a statement back in June.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

General Dynamics and Technical Products Awarded USD 11 Million by U.S. Navy for Aegis Illuminators

first_img View post tag: Naval March 10, 2011 View post tag: News by topic General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products was awarded an $11.2 million contract modification by the U.S. Navy for the continued production of MK82 directors and MK200 director controllers for Aegis Combat System illuminators. General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products is a business unit of General Dynamics. The MK 82 and MK 200 are critical components of the Aegis missile fire-control system’s illuminator. The Aegis Combat System is the most advanced tactical radar defense and fire-control system fielded by the Navy.This award modifies a contract issued in September 2010 by the Naval Sea Systems Command. That contract was valued at $11.5 million, with a total potential value of $29.5 million if all options are exercised. Under these contracts, the MK82 directors and MK200 director controllers will be installed aboard ships built under the restart of the DDG 51 shipbuilding program.“For more than 20 years of DDG 51-class production, General Dynamics Armament and Technical Products has produced and supported MK82 directors and the MK200 director controllers, so these critical components remain effective and affordable elements of the Aegis weapon system,” said Russ Klein, the company’s vice president and general manager of weapon systems.Program management, assembly and testing of directors and director controllers will be performed at General Dynamics’ facilities in Vermont, which have approximately 430 employees. The delivery of all illuminator components will be completed by July 2013.[mappress]Source: General Dynamics Armament,March 10, 2011 View post tag: DYNAMICS View post tag: Aegis View post tag: USD View post tag: By View post tag: General View post tag: Illuminators View post tag: 11center_img View post tag: U.S. View post tag: million Back to overview,Home naval-today General Dynamics and Technical Products Awarded USD 11 Million by U.S. Navy for Aegis Illuminators View post tag: Awarded View post tag: Products View post tag: Technical View post tag: Navy Share this article General Dynamics and Technical Products Awarded USD 11 Million by U.S. Navy for Aegis Illuminatorslast_img read more

Pursuing a path of diversity, inclusivity

first_imgMeredith Rosenthal, professor of Health Economics and Policy, is marking one year as Harvard School of Public Health’s associate dean for Diversity. Here, she discusses goals and challenges in creating a more diverse, more inclusive School—and why it’s so important.HSPH: What’s going right at Harvard School of Public Health in terms of diversity and inclusion? And what needs improvement?ROSENTHAL: We have a diverse and dynamic community at all levels, with countless grassroots and student-led initiatives that encourage dialogue about and celebration of differences. There are also important programmatic efforts in individual departments and laboratories. For instance, we have several pipeline programs to help prepare potential future applicants from underrepresented minority groups. There are summer programs that have been in place in biostatistics and biological sciences and epidemiology for many years. We are beginning to draw from these models to strengthen our ability schoolwide to attract and retain students from underrepresented groups.HSPH: How is the School doing with regard to increasing the number of women and minority faculty?ROSENTHAL: Over the last decade, we’ve increased our numbers of junior women faculty significantly; about 40 percent of our assistant and associate professors are women. The numbers in the senior faculty are, not surprisingly, lower — about 23 percent of full professors are women. The senior faculty numbers haven’t increased as much in part because of the low turnover of full professors and the long tenure track. Read Full Storylast_img read more
