Susan Snook, miembro del Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Finanzas para la Misión (FFM), puso al día a sus colegas sobre la labor del comité sobre el presupuesto hasta la fecha. Debido a que esa labor no está terminada aún, la obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori advirtió a los miembros del Consejo y a los observadores que se abstuvieran de informar los detalles del trabajo presentado por Snook. El comité volverá al Consejo el 27 de octubre con un anteproyecto.Luego de que el Consejo considere esa versión, no tardará en darla a conocer a la Iglesia para recibir comentarios. Además, algunos miembros del FFM se quedarán en el Instituto Marítimo en Linthicum Heights, Maryland, después de terminada la reunión para discutir el documento con el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas (PB&F) durante su reunión del 27 al 29 de octubre.El FFM revisará entonces el presupuesto a partir de los comentarios del PB&F y de la opinión denominacional y dispondrá de un proyecto final para someterlo a la consideración del Consejo durante su reunión del 9 al 11 de enero de 2015. Según las reglas conjuntas de la Convención General (regla conjunta II.10.c.ii), el Consejo debe entregarle su proyecto presupuestario al PB&F no menos de cuatro meses antes del comienzo de la Convención General (esencialmente para febrero del año de la Convención).El PB&F debe reunirse de nuevo del 23 al 25 de febrero de 2015, para comenzar a trabajar en ese proyecto de presupuesto. El PB&F utiliza el proyecto de presupuesto y cualquier legislación aprobada por la Convención General o sometida a la consideración de la misma para crear una propuesta presupuestaria final. Ese presupuesto debe presentarse ante una sesión conjunta de las dos cámaras —de Obispos y de Diputados— a más tardar el tercer día antes del programado para la clausura de la Convención. Las dos cámaras debatirán y votarán por separado sobre el presupuesto que requiere de la aprobación de ambas.En un asunto relacionado, el tesorero Kurt Barnes puso al corriente al Consejo sobre el estado del actual presupuesto trienal 2013-2015. Informó que el presupuesto del 2014 hasta septiembre está en líneas generales de acuerdo con la versión revisada que el Consejo había aprobado anteriormente.La Convención General aprueba el presupuesto trienal y el Consejo con frecuencia revisa los tres presupuestos anuales, a partir de los cambios ocurridos a nivel de ingresos y egresos.Al Consejo se le pedirá que apruebe un presupuesto para 2015 que tiene un déficit, pero, dijo Barnes, el presupuesto trienal, que al menos debe estar equilibrado, mostrará un ingreso de $4 millones por encima de lo que se necesita para cubrir los gastos. Él atribuye ese superávit a $1,5 millones en ingresos no presupuestados provenientes de alquileres de espacios en el Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en Nueva York. $2,9 millones adicionales provienen de un aumento de ingresos de fondos patrimoniales en apoyo de la obra de la oficina de desarrollo de la Iglesia. El aumento de algunos gastos redujeron la cifra [original] de ese ingreso adicional que era de $4,4 millones, dijo Barnes.Él hizo notar que si bien el ingreso diocesano ha aumentado a partir de lo presupuestado, ese ingreso es atribuible a un mejor rendimiento de las inversiones diocesanas conducentes a mayores ingresos diocesanos y a un mejoramiento general de la economía.“No hemos visto ningún aumento [en el número] de diócesis que refuercen con mayores [porcentajes de] contribuciones”, afirmó.El presupuesto trienal de la Iglesia Episcopal depende fundamentalmente de las promesas de las diócesis y de las zonas de misión regionales. La contribución anual de cada año en el presupuesto trienal se basa en el ingreso de una diócesis dos años antes, menos $120.000. Los compromisos diocesanos para 2013 y 2014, basados en la solicitud presupuestaria de una contribución del 19 por ciento, pueden verse aquí.La Obispa Primada dice que la Iglesia debe aprender a compartir sus recursos de nuevas manerasLa obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori centró su discurso de apertura al Consejo en cómo la Iglesia debe cambiar la manera de educar a sus líderes y cómo ello podría fomentar la autonomía económica para todas las diócesis y otras jurisdicciones de la Iglesia.“No somos llamados a edificar una Iglesia que deje a sus parientes pobres y en apuros avergonzados o incapacitados por su pobreza”, dijo. “Somos llamados a construir sociedades de abundancia donde los recursos se dirijan hacia donde se necesitan, y donde nadie viva con carencias… Deberíamos retar a todos los episcopales a ver la abundancia que disfrutamos como dones a ser compartidos. Cuando esos dones se comparten, sabemos que eso aporta alegría y prosperidad a todos los miembros del cuerpo [de Cristo]. Se manifiesta como vida abundante”.Jefferts Schori también felicitó a todo el Consejo por el “incremento de su capacidad en este trienio”.“Estamos dedicados a la misión y el ministerio de esta Iglesia de maneras más amplias y estratégicas de lo que hemos estado en años recientes”, afirmó. “Sigo creyendo que la misión fundamental de esta organización es mucho mayor que las cuestiones estratégicas, y espero firmemente que la Convención nos ayudará a esclarecer ese papel”.El texto completo del discurso de la Obispa Primada puede encontrarse aquí.La presidente de la Cámara de Diputados bosqueja los cambios de la Convención GeneralEn sus observaciones de apertura al Consejo, la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, bosquejó una serie de cambios para la reunión de la Convención General en 2015 que dijo estaban destinados a “la creación del proceso legislativo que pueda ayudarnos mejor a discernir nuestra misión y ministerio”.Esos cambios incluyen una nueva lista de comités legislativos que estén más estrechamente alineados con el marco de las Cinco Marcas de la Misión, dijeron Jennings y Jefferts Schori en una carta enviada en julio a los obispos y los diputados. Los nuevos comités pueden verse aquí.Jennings dijo que se propone nombrar comités legislativos de la Cámara de Diputados para el fin de este año e instruir a los presidentes de comités a comenzar a trabajar antes de la Convención General. Las actuales Reglas de Orden permiten comenzar a trabajar con esa antelación y Jennings le dijo al Consejo que ella espera que [el Consejo] hará lo posible para que consideramos la legislación mucho más eficientemente una vez que lleguemos a la Convención General”.Otro cambio en la convención es la programación de las cuatro sesiones conjuntas de la Cámara de Obispos y la Cámara de Diputados, a saber:* 24 de junio, el día antes de la primera jornada legislativa, una sesión vespertina durante la cual se presentarán los nominados para [el cargo de] Obispo Primado.* 26 de junio, sesión conjunta para recibir oficialmente las nominaciones del Comité de Nominaciones Conjunto para la Elección del 27º. Obispo Primado y para recibir nominaciones que puedan haberse producido a través del proceso de peticiones. (La Cámara de Obispos elige al Obispo Primado el 27 de junio, después de lo cual se le pide a la Cámara de Diputados que confirme o no, mediante votación, la elección hecha por los obispos). Esa sesión también incluirá un conversatorio sobre la estructura de la Iglesia, según dijo Jennings.* 30 de junio, sesión conjunta para un conversatorio sobre la misión.* 1 de julio, para que el Comité Permanente Conjunto sobre Programa, Presupuesto y Finanzas presente su proyecto de presupuesto para el trienio 2016-2018 (ambas cámaras debatirán el presupuesto y deben convenir sobre el mismo presupuesto para que resulte aprobado) y* 3 de julio (última jornada legislativa), una eucaristía especial para que la Convención le dé la bienvenida al Obispo Primado electo. Jennings dijo que aunque el nuevo Obispo Primado también será investido en la Catedral Nacional de Washington más adelante en el año, “nos proponemos que el oficio en la Convención General sea la celebración fundamental de manera que todos podamos participar del evento con sólo algunos modestos costos adicionales”.El texto completo de las observaciones de Jennings se encuentra aquí. Y la carta del 22 de octubre que ella le escribió a los diputados explicándoles los cambios en la Convención General se encuentra aquí.El resto de la agenda de la reuniónEl consejo dedicará todo el 25 de octubre a reuniones de comités. Después de la eucaristía del 26 de octubre, las sesiones de comités continuarán hasta media tarde cuando todo el Consejo se reunirá para otra sesión sobre el proyecto del presupuesto 2016-2018. El 27 de octubre, el consejo se reunirá como un todo para considerar varios informes y para pronunciarse sobre las resoluciones propuestas de sus cinco comités. Ese día incluirá una sesión a puertas cerradas para que el Consejo oiga el informe de su subcomité respecto a las opciones para el uso del Centro Denominacional de la Iglesia en el No. 815 de la Segunda Avenida en Nueva York.La reunión del 24 al 27 de octubre tiene lugar en el Centro de Conferencias del Instituto Marítimo [Maritime Institute Conference Center].Algunos miembros del Consejo están enviando mensajes por Twitter desde la reunión valiéndose del código #ExCoun.El Consejo Ejecutivo lleva a cabo los programas y políticas adoptadas por la Convención General, según el Canon I.4 (1)(a). El Consejo está compuesto de 38 miembros, 20 de los cuales (cuatro obispos, cuatro presbíteros o diáconos y 12 laicos) son elegidos por la Convención General, y 18 por los nueve sínodos provinciales (un clérigo y un laico cada uno) por períodos de seis años, además del Obispo Primado y el Presidente de la Cámara de Diputados [que son miembros ex oficio].– La Rda.

School of Hard Knocks 2012 – Episode 2

first_imgThursday May 10, 2012 School of Hard Knocks 2012 – Episode 2 Here is the next episode of School of Hard Knocks, the show that has Will Greenwood and Scott Quinnell mentoring a group of youngsters in Tottenham, turning them into not only rugby players, but stronger individuals, better equipped to take on life. In episode one of School of Hard Knocks we got to know a bit about the guys, their characters, and saw some of their backgrounds. In this next episode we get to see them put through their paces on the field, where some clearly take a bit longer to grasp the concept than others.One of the highlights of the episode is when big Scott Quinnell gets in the zone and smashes a random defender in an attempt to get them fired up. Tensions boil over later on with a few of the guys, as the differences in background and personalities come to to the fore.A visit from Olympic sprinter Darren Cambell helps to inspire the group, as well as teach them some new sprinting techniques, and a later visit from the Barbarians – in town to take on the Wallabies – also goes a long way towards inspiring and humbling the group.View Episode 1 in the related posts below, and as always please share your thoughts on this episode with a comment below, and we’ll post the next two over the course of the next week or so.

MediaTrust relaunches Community Newswire

first_img AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Media Trust has restored its Community Newswire, the free national news distribution service for charities, communities and campaigns, run in partnership with the Press Association (PA). The service was shut down in March this year after funding from the Cabinet Office was not renewed. New funding from the Big Lottery has enabled it to be revived.The service helps helps charities and community groups get their stories into the national and regional media. Stories, press releases and photos are submitted online to Community Newswire, and the best are selected and written up by Press Association journalists and distributed to thousands of newsrooms across the UK.The service has also been extended to ‘citizen journalists’. Indeed, the Big Lottery Fund’s grant was made “to support citizen journalism to play a greater role in bringing about people-powered change in communities up and down the country.”Caroline Diehl, Chief Executive of Media Trust, said: “Community Newswire is a unique and vital service. The Big Lottery Fund’s grant reflects their understanding of the communication needs of small charities and their key role in keeping our communities strong and healthy. We are delighted that as a part of that vision we are able to bring Community Newswire back.”Community Newswire was launched in 2004 and between April 2010 and March 2011, it handled almost 10,000 stories. Of these 70% were from hard to reach groups and 100% satisfaction was reported from the charities using the service, according to the Media Trust.Stephen Mitchell, Deputy Director of News at BBC, is also on the advisory board. He said: “The relaunch of Community Newswire is really good news. It will allow important stories about communities across Britain to continue to be heard. Community Newswire is a crucial outlet for marginalised voices and I’m delighted that the important work that Media Trust does in this area will continue.”www.mediatrust.org/communitynewswire About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Canada May Rejoin NAFTA Talks this Week

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE Previous articleStatewide Rainfall ContinuedNext articleCrop Tour Hits Suspect Indiana Fields on Day One Hoosier Ag Today Home Indiana Agriculture News Canada May Rejoin NAFTA Talks this Week Facebook Twitter SHARE By Hoosier Ag Today – Aug 20, 2018 Canada May Rejoin NAFTA Talks this Week Canada could rejoin the North American Free Trade Agreement talks by the end of this week, according to Politico. The move is a positive sign that the U.S. and Mexico could begin wrapping up their end of the deal quickly, paving the way for the U.S. to pivot towards negotiating with Canada. For weeks, Canada has been on the sidelines of the talks as the U.S. and Mexico engage in negotiations.However, Canada has remained out largely since many issues being discussed are simply topics, such as labor, that Canada does not need to be included in. The U.S. and Mexico are eager to wrap up their sides of the negotiations, with both nations seeing a quick agreement as a political win, before the U.S. midterm elections and before a new President take office in Mexico.In a cabinet meeting last week, President Trump said, “As far as Mexico and Canada…we’re not negotiating with Canada right now. Their tariffs are too high. Their barriers are too strong. So we’re not even talking to them right now. But we’ll see how that works out. It will only work out to our favor.”Source: NAFB News Servicelast_img read more

Rainy conditions impact No. 16 Football’s routine in victory over SMU

first_imgTwitter Two students joined harassment and discrimination lawsuit against TCU Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ Robbie Vagliohttps://www.tcu360.com/author/robbie-vaglio/ What to watch during quarantine TCU wants ex-professor’s discrimination suit dismissed Linkedin I am the executive editor of TCU 360 from Raleigh, North Carolina. If you walk by my desk in the newsroom you’ll immediately know I’m Post Malone’s biggest fan. I’m always looking for a good story to tell! If you have any story ideas, feel free to reach out! Go Panthers! printShawn Robinson said the team practices with a wet ball and should have executed better early. TCU vs SMU. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Thunderstorms rolled through the Metroplex Friday evening, suspending the Battle for the Iron Skillet by two hours.Overcoming a shaky start, the Horned Frogs were able to regroup and rout the SMU Mustangs, 42-12, and keep the Iron Skillet in Fort Worth.“[We have] a lot of work to do, keep working,” Head Coach Gary Patterson said. “Just got to keep getting stronger and better.”Opening kick-off was delayed until 8:57 p.m., but the coaching staff anticipated the postponement and packed accordingly.Patterson said the team bought extra food.“I made sure, when they said we wouldn’t start at 7 p.m., that we went and passed out extra because we ate pregame at 3 p.m.,” Patterson said. “You kind of have to have a plan and do the things you need to do.”The 8:57 p.m. kickoff time was the latest in Patterson’s 18-year tenure as the head coach.The delay seemed to have an impact on the Horned Frogs early in the contest. SMU marched down the field in their first drive for 75 yards and scored in less than two minutes. Against North Texas last week, the Mustangs accumulated only 46 yards and scored zero points in the first three quarters.Wide receiver Jaelen Austin knew the Mustangs would come out fighting.“It’s an amazing rivalry,” Austin said. “It’s always going to be a Super Bowl atmosphere type of game. Both sides want to win that game. It’s an intense matchup.”Before the Horned Frogs began to pull away in the second half, TCU and SMU played a close game, per usual. TCU vs SMU. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.Quarterback Shawn Robinson was not on his game early, as well. The rainy conditions seemed to have an effect on the throwing game as Robinson could not connect with his receivers.“It was tough but we practice with a wet ball,” Robinson said. “We’re used to it. Coach did a good job of keeping us focused.”Robinson anticipated a strong start from the Mustangs, especially playing on their home field.“Definitely on the road, you expect a team to come out like that,” Robinson said. “We took it and just kept working.”Robinson spent the delay reading. He said he’s an avid reader and was reading “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” by Robert Kiyosaki and Sharon Lechter to keep his mind calm and focused.After the first quarter, the Mustangs outgained the Horned Frogs 114-66 yards and outscored the Horned Frogs 9-0.“We are young but mature minded,” Austin said. “Stay focused and locked in. We weren’t worried too much about it.”The defense responded well to the adversity and buckled down, allowing only three points and 128 yards for the remainder of the game.Banogu’s forced fumble for a touchdown was the sixth of his career. TCU vs SMU. Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.“We just got to understand that you have to run the whole plan when you’re playing people who are as good as you are,” Patterson said. “We were able to do more of that in our defense today. For us to be a dominant offense, we need to do much more than we did tonight.”Robinson finished tonight’s game completing 15 of 28 passes for 146 yards, one touchdown and one interception, but he was not content with his performance.“I need to be more accurate and make plays,” Robinson said.Robinson is confident his performance will get better with experience.Of TCU’s 42 points, Robinson only accounted for 14. He recorded an 18-yard rushing touchdown and a 42-yard pass to wide receiver KaVontae Turpin.Most of their points came off irregular plays. Austin recovered a fumble in the end zone by running back Sewo Oloniulua, linebacker Alec Dunham recorded a scoop-and-score touchdown after defensive end Ben Banogu forced a fumble and Turpin recorded a 78-yard punt return.Patterson called the punt return a “game-changing” play that sparked the team’s turn around.“You never know where your momentum comes from,” Patterson said. “He’s a difference maker. Every year he has one. He always practices hard, loves the game and always plays hard. You’re just looking for guys who love the games.”With the victory, TCU opens the season with a 2-0 record for the 11th time in Patterson’s 18 seasons. The win was Patterson’s 15th win over SMU in 17 attempts.The Horned Frogs will face their strongest opponent of the early season next weekend when Ohio State travels to Arlington, Texas. Defensive lineman Corey Bethley said the team is looking at Ohio State like they would prepare for any other opponent.“To be successful, we just need to execute whatever’s called,” Robinson said.Kick-off against the Buckeyes is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Saturday.

Eurovision – A word about media freedom?

Organisation News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 4, 2021 Find out more News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan to go further Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh June 8, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts The eyes of more than 100 million TV viewers will turn to the Azerbaijani capital of Baku in two days’ time for the Eurovision Song Contest final. The European public will be shown a beautiful country and a hospitable people. “But there is another side to Azerbaijan that the authorities have done everything possible to mask – a repressive and brutal regime that stops at nothing to silence the few journalists who try to investigate sensitive subjects or provide critical news coverage,” Reporters Without Borders said.“We are not trying to spoil the party or, still less, promote any ‘hostile’ political agenda, as the Azerbaijani government likes to claim, but how can song be completely dissociated from freedom of expression? Singers have come from 40 countries to make their voices heard in Baku but other voices will remain unheard. “What about the voices of the blogger and five journalists currently in prison for what they wanted to say, the two journalists who were murdered, the dozens of journalists who have been the victims of physical attacks that go unpunished, and the independent media that have been largely eliminated? Civil society will struggle to make its voice heard. They should all, in their own way, be contributing to the concert.”The Azerbaijani authorities have spent hundreds of millions of petrodollars on giving the capital a facelift for this event, which crowns an international charm offensive. No effort has been spared to project the image of a modern, dynamic and open country, a new Dubai growing at a breakneck pace, with trendy discotheques and welcoming beaches. A paradise for investors if you can turn a blind eye to the corruption.But Azerbaijan is definitely not a paradise for journalists. Nor for human rights in general. Ranked 162nd out of 179 countries in the latest Reporters Without Borders press freedom index, it also has two of the world’s “predators of freedom of information” that Reporters Without Borders has identified – President Ilham Aliev and his loyal henchman, Vasif Talibov, who tests the most draconian repressive methods in the isolated exclave of NakhchivanThe International Partnership Group for Azerbaijan, a coalition of NGOs that includes Reporters Without Borders, issued a report on 26 March documenting the appalling state of freedom of information in Azerbaijan.A broadcast media regulatory body under the president’s direct control ensures that all radio and TV stations support the government. The few independent publications hardly circulate outside the capital. The media situation deteriorated even more as a result of the violent crackdown on a wave of pro-democracy demonstrations in the spring of 2011, in the wake of the Arab revolts. Bloggers were arrested and beaten, opposition journalists were abducted and foreign journalists were deported.The remaining handful of independent journalists are often the targets of threats and smear campaigns. The murders of two outspoken journalists, Elmar Huseynov in 2005 and Rafik Tagi in 2011, are still unpunished, as are the frequent physical attacks on journalists.“We urge the performers taking part in this event to express their support for Azerbaijan’s civil society and media,” Reporters Without Borders added. “France’s representative, Anggun, is said to be sensitive to human rights issues. Will she point to the parallels between the prison environment shown in her video clip and the fate that Azerbaijani journalists often suffer?“The European Broadcasting Union, which oversees the contest, should start to speak out about the grave situation of Azerbaijan’s media, in accordance with the principles and values it is supposed to promote. Finally, we appeal to each of the 1,600 journalists who are expected, urging them to assign at least a few hours of their visit to conducting interviews and research into this issue.”By turning the international spotlight on Azerbaijan, the authorities have given civil society an unexpected chance to make its voice heard. Azerbaijani civil society now needs the support of the international community. It must also be ready for the reprisals that are liable to follow once all the cameras have left.Get informed, join the campaign! – International Partnership Group for Azerbaijan- Sing for Democracy campaign- Read the report “Running scared.
