Bishops end convention with busy legislative session

first_img July 19, 2012 at 9:38 pm I read with interest the leading paragraph in this report that said, “The House of Bishops wrapped up its business on July 12….on topics as wide ranging as genetically modified crops….” As an animal scientist working to bring safe, ground-breaking and innovative technologies to the marketplace, I was stunned by the lack of information on this globally important topic that will clearly help with doubling food production by the year 2050, as we will need to do according to the United Nations’ Food & Agriculture Organization (motto “Fiat Panis” (“let there be bread”)lp. A search of this site did not reveal what action(s) this Convention took on this issue. What happened and does my Church support this viable, scientifically defensible and safe form of production? After all, Christ speaks to me as to us all by saying, “Feed my sheep.”.

It represents a phenomenal standard of behavior. God bless you all.”At the 11th hour, Bishop Tom Ely of Vermont told bishops that through a logistical snafu Resolution B016, which involved a 15 percent standard for diocesan giving to the larger church, got lost somewhere between the two legislative houses and likely would not be considered by deputies at this General Convention.“We passed this on July 9 by a substantial roll call vote and for some reason in the system it was not communicated to the House of Deputies,” Ely told bishops. “When I went to find out where this stood at the end of today when we were getting ready to adjourn we discovered it was not out into the House of Deputies yet.“We need to express this in as strong a way as we can,” he added. “We worked hard at that and the stewardship committee worked very hard at bringing back revised language to us that we supported strongly and without this mind of the house I don’t know whether we will communicate clearly our support for this resolution, so I urge us to adopt this mind of the house [resolution].”Bishops overwhelmingly approved the measure, as Ely had requested. The budget drafted by the Program, Budget and Finance Committee had assumed $73.5 million in commitments from the church’s dioceses (line 2), nearly $4 million less than that in the current triennium. That total is based on keeping at 19 percent the amount that the church asks dioceses to annually contribute to the church-wide budget. It was not immediately clear if deputies were able to vote the resolution before the close of convention.Bishops also rejected several resolutions attempting to postpone implementation of the Episcopal Church Medical Trust.The house also approved Resolution D067, which urges passage by Congress of the DREAM Act, which would provide a pathway to citizenship for undocumented youth and young adults. Other measures adopted included Resolution D055, urging the United States government to enact stricter controls on the use of carbon-based fuels, and Resolution A167, calling for creation of an “HIV Welcoming Parish Initiative” to help congregations to become more engaged with people living with HIV/AIDS.Bishops adopted Resolution D069, which involves a “social media challenge” calling upon every congregation to use social media in its current and future forms.Bishop Scott Hayashi of Utah urged passage of Resolution D093, affirming the ongoing work of the Office of Black Ministries as of “prime importance for us as a church” and the need for support for some struggling historically African-American congregations.Bishop Gregory Brewer of Central Florida expressed hopes of pairing earlier resolutions about how missionary enterprise zones might help create possibilities “to raise up new candidates for ordination among African Americans and Afro-Caribbeans. There is an extraordinary need … We are receiving a flood of Africans of Caribbean descent and many of the historic African-American churches are not doing particularly well. It’s a challenge for me as a bishop that I want to see grow and support.”They also adopted:A122, which calls the Standing Commission on the Structure of the Church to study the current budgeting process and matters of financial oversight and make recommendations to the 78th General Convention on possible changes;D066, approving creation of a network of retired Episcopal executives willing to assist dioceses and parishes, modeled on SCORE, a business counseling and mentoring organization;D023, which affirms that all Episcopalians are called to be evangelists to help grow the church and the kingdom of God and commends the work of the Office of Congregational Vitality and the Office of Emergent Church and Church Planting.Bishops concurred with deputies on Resolution D018, which called upon Congress to repeal federal laws, such as the Defense of Marriage Act, that discriminate against same-gender couples who are legally married in the states where that is permitted.The house also adopted Resolution D059, which urges a halt to the Immigration and Custom Enforcement’s practice of detaining people suspected of being in the country illegally without filing any charges against them, which it said leads victims of crime not to contact the police. It also decries racial profiling in immigration matters.Other resolutions adopted include:B028, urging Congress to modernize the nation’s refugee resettlement program;D005, which calls on the U.S. government to begin to use the term “criminals” for those who commit acts of terror rather than someone engaged in war;A015, commending democratic movements in the Middle East and North Africa;C119, calling for reduced air pollution in ports and greater rights for port workers;B023, calling for solidarity with the poor and indigenous people who bear great burdens because of global climate change, with special mention of the Inupiaq Community of Kivalina, Alaska, which is coping with rising sea levels;D087, urging efforts in job creation; andA040, urging Episcopalians to work for health care reform.–The Rev.

We ask the Government to pay heed to the Constitutional First Amendment separation of Church and State. Yet as a CHRISTIAN CHURCH you presented and adopted Resolutions such as:• D067, which urges passage by Congress of the DREAM Act.• D055, urges the United States government re. the use of carbon-based fuels.• D018, which called upon Congress to repeal federal laws, such as the Defense of Marriage Act.• D059, which urges a halt to the Immigration and certain Custom Enforcement’s practices.• B028, urging Congress to modernize the nation’s refugee resettlement program.• D005, which calls on the U.S. government to begin to use the term “criminals” – a “PC” issue.• A015, commending democratic movements in the Middle East and North Africa.• C119, calling for reduced air pollution in ports and greater rights for port workers.• D087, urging efforts in job creation.• A040, urging Episcopalians to work for health care reform.These are just a few of the issues which have our CHURCH telling the STATE what to enact or repeal at the EPISCOPALIAN Convention. There is no question that these are important issues to our country. But they are political issues which our CHURCH should leave in the hands of the STATE. We have enough to do WITHIN the church to keep it viable. This Convention took time to address all those issue yet somehow overlooked a Resolution B016, which addressed a change in the standard for diocesan giving to the larger church. That was PURELY Church business! Church members are politically as rigidly divided as the populace. Taking sides divides, alienates, and will absolutely separate this church.Prosperity, our free market system and the work ethic which made this country the best place in the world to live are all under attack. Those are huge and divisive political issues. Of course they affect us all, and as individuals; Christian, Jew, Muslim or atheist we should be involved with politics at whatever level our spirits move us. Christianity is under attack as well; prayer, the Commandments and crosses challenged. Our members are intelligent enough to join ALL Christians as they are so moved to take on the political aspect of these battles. The Episcopal Church in wisdom would be aware that a strong church, unified in the zeal to promote Christianity and Christian behavior WITHIN gives its membership a clear path to follow and promote. We in the trenches want to see our church provide a place of peace and Christian teaching; Christian support of our members and communities. This alone. Our free choice of political preference and involvement must be left to ourselves, left OUT of our churches.State & Federal political issues bombard our lives daily in every media form. The church should logically and theologically be above that. Infusing Church membership with politics, regulations and minutia like being green, global warming and immigration is to embroil us in uncompromising conflict, controversial “science” and legal chaos. For God’s sake, I hope you who lead this Faith can get on about teaching the word of Jesus Christ and the healthy growth of the church in the USA. Imagine how simple the agenda for next year’s Convention could be if it focused on church business and let politics and law be the business of Government. To encourage individual involvement is healthy. End it at that, please!Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God, the things which are God’s.

Bath looking good away from home at Ulster

first_imgMonday Aug 16, 2010 Bath looking good away from home at Ulster Ulster went down 26-14 to Bath in a competitive pre-season friendly in Ravenhill on Friday night. Both sides played attacking rugby when possible, and there are encouraging signs for both parties ahead of their respective seasons.Despite going down on the day, Ulster have plenty of positives to take from the match as they gave starts to a few new caps, with debutant Pedrie Wannenburg crossing for a try late in the game. Wannenburg, formerly of the Bulls and South Africa, made his debut for his new side and says there are good days ahead.“We must not look at the result we must look at the positives, we kept the ball well in the first 20 minutes and we looking forward to the next game. Coming to Belfast is a new challenge for me and the atmosphere was very good and that is a positive for us, he said.“I was a bit rusty as it was the first game of the season and there is still plenty of work to be done, we’re looking forward to the next match.“This is really a good bunch of guys and they have made me felt welcome since the moment I arrived. Bath played pretty well and it was good competition for us but it will be all about the results at the end of the season,” he added.Bath, who now have Lewis Moody in their camp, looked good as they shifted the ball through the hands and created tries for their backs. Matt Banahan crashed through the line for a nice try, as did fellow back Jack Cuthbert.This is just a quick highlights clip to get you in the mood for the UK rugby season, which kicks off soon. Other noteworthy clips from the NH season will be posted over the next few months.

Courtney Lawes set for 12 weeks out after training ground injury

first_imgWednesday Mar 3, 2021 Courtney Lawes set for 12 weeks out after training ground injury England lock Courtney Lawes faces being out of rugby for 12 weeks after suffering a pectoral injury. The Northampton forward, who has won 87 caps, was hurt during England training last week.ADVERTISEMENTHis Saints team-mate David Ribbans has been called into England’s Guinness Six Nations squad to bolster second-row resources ahead of their remaining games against France and Ireland.Northampton said that Lawes will undergo surgery and he faces an approximate 12-week recovery period.That would sideline him until late May or early June, meaning he will miss the overwhelming majority of Saints’ remaining Gallagher Premiership fixtures.Whether it affects his British and Irish Lions squad selection hopes to face South Africa this summer remains to be seen.WATCH: The very biggest hits of Courtney Lawes’ bruising career at the top“Northampton Saints can confirm that, following consultation between the club’s medical staff and a specialist, Courtney Lawes will undergo surgery on the pectoral injury he sustained in England training last week,” Saints said in a statement.“The 32-year-old lock will require a rehabilitation period of approximately 12 weeks.”England resume their Six Nations campaign against France on Saturday week, having suffered defeats against Scotland and Wales either side of beating Italy.ADVERTISEMENTThe Rugby Football Union said that some of Jones’ 28-man squad “who have received less playing time during the tournament” will be given an opportunity to play for their clubs this weekend.“This will be an individual decision for each player from a performance perspective and is in line with tournament regulations and Covid-19 protocols,” the RFU added.Jones limited his Six Nations squad selection in January to 28 players in an effort to enhance coronavirus safety measures.The RFU struck an agreement with Premiership Rugby and the Rugby Players’ Association that enables the 28 members to remain in camp for the entirety of a Test week.ADVERTISEMENTIt was previously customary for Jones to pick an initial training squad of around 32 players that would arrive in camp on a Monday.This would then be trimmed to a smaller group of 23 to 25 on a Tuesday or Wednesday night, enabling those not in contention to play for England that weekend to turn out for their clubs instead.RELATED VIEWING: Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 14 WEEKS AGO Inquiry into link between sport and long-term… 14 WEEKS AGO Women’s Rugby World Cup to be postponed… 14 WEEKS AGO Rugby Pod divided on THOSE refereeing decisions… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Iran calls for ceasefire in Yemen

first_imgIranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has outlined a proposal for the cessation of hostilities in Yemen through an April 17 letter to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.This plan involves four demands: an immediate ceasefire, a halt to attacks by Saudi-Gulf Cooperation Council-led war planes, provisions for a safe corridor to provide much needed humanitarian relief and the resumption of political dialogue. This proposal came just one day after the U.N. secretary general called for an immediate ceasefire.On April 20, Zarif published a letter in the opinion and editorial section of the New York Times stating Iran’s willingness to cooperate with other regional states and the international community in solving the crisis of the numerous wars in the Persian Gulf and the broader Middle East. The foreign minister stressed that Tehran’s recent agreement with the United States and European Union addressing its nuclear program could serve as an impetus for serious multilateral talks on other issues.Zarif noted that without a broader framework for resolving ongoing interventions and humanitarian challenges, the current atmosphere of dialogue could easily be lost to open confrontation over Yemen, Iraq, Syria and other countries.The foreign minister stressed: “The Iranian people have shown their resolve by choosing to engage with dignity. It is time for the United States and its Western allies to make the choice between cooperation and confrontation, between negotiations and grandstanding, and between agreement and coercion.”This same letter goes on to emphasize that “if one were to begin serious discussion of the calamities the region faces, Yemen would be a good place to start.”Operation Decisive Storm, the bombing campaign of the Saudi-GCC alliance against the Ansurallah or Houthi forces in Yemen, is a manifestation of U.S. imperialist efforts to continue its proxy war against Iran. The expansion of the war in Yemen has implications for developments in Iraq and Syria, as both states have spoken out about their strong opposition to the bombing of Yemen and the threat of a possible ground invasion by Egypt and Sunni-led rebel groups that are funded by Riyadh. Ansurallah leader says U.S. at the root of war in YemenSince March 26, the Saudi Arabian air force in alliance with other Gulf Cooperation Council states, without any semblance of a U.N. or international mandate, has carried out the massive bombardment of Yemen. There has also been a naval blockade denying much needed food and other goods entry into the most underdeveloped territories in the region.Nonetheless, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution on April 14 imposing an arms embargo on the Ansurallah movement demanding that they withdraw from areas where their fighters have control. The resolution also placed asset freezes and travel bans on key leaders of the Houthis.The U.S. supplies the Saudis and the GCC with fighter planes, weapons, intelligence support and refueling that is facilitating the bombing of Yemen. The Ansurallah is a Shia-based movement that has taken large swaths of territory in the north, central and south of Yemen.In a television address aired over Press TV, the Ansurallah leader, Abdel-Malik al-Houthi, blamed the U.S. for the war against his country. He charged the Pentagon with pointing out areas in Yemen to be attacked.“‘We do not need permission from the [United Nations Security Council] to defend our country, al-Houthi said, stressing, ‘The Yemeni people have the right and legitimacy to defend their land. ‘Our great people will not surrender, they will stand.’” (April 19)The Ansurallah leader said that the objective of the Saudi-GCC bombing is to “return Yemen to the Israeli and U.S. identity.”Bombing spreads in YemenMeanwhile, the Saudi-GCC alliance con­tinues its bombing in 18 out of 22 pro­vinces in Yemen, displacing 150,000 people, ­killing an estimated 2,600 people, mostly civilians, and wounding 2,900 others.A further escalation in the bombardments took place on April 20, when homes were destroyed in Sanaa killing at least 15 people. Oxfam, the London-based organization, reported that many civilians have been targets of the attacks. The group said that one of its food storage warehouses, where no arms or fighters from the Ansurallah are based, was struck, even though the coalition knew of all the locations. (NY Times, April 20)Bombing of Yemen threatens broader warThe bombing in Sanaa on April 20 set off another round of diplomatic wrangling. The Iranian foreign ministry summoned the Saudi Arabian ambassador in Tehran to express displeasure at the current situation. Indonesian Foreign Minister Retno Marsudi said in Jakarta that the government was opposed to the bombings, which have resulted in the wounding of two of its diplomatic personnel.A Yemeni television station, al-Yemen al-Youm, was hit by the Saudi-GCC bombs on April 20 leaving three of its staff dead. The area around Faj Attan has been a frequent target of the air campaign over the last few weeks.Iran in recent statements has expressed its willingness to become more directly involved in the Yemeni situation, warning Saudi Arabia and the U.S. that any attack on its territory will be met with fierce retaliation.Just one day before, the commander of the Iranian Army’s Ground Forces, Brig. Gen.

first_imgActivists put courts, cops on trialBy Tyler Stuart and LeiLani DowellDurham, N.C.Comrades and community members in Durham will hold a People’s Tribunal on Jan. 13, putting on trial those who enforce racial injustice.The People’s Tribunal was created in part to challenge the charges laid against eight anti-racist activists by the Durham police for tearing down a white supremacist statue in August 2017. The defendants are scheduled to be in court again on Jan. 11.On Aug. 12, anti-fascist and anti-racist protesters militantly challenged a neo-Nazi gathering in Charlottesville, Va. After violent clashes throughout the day, anti-racist Heather Heyer was murdered by a white supremacist who drove his car into a group of protesters.Activists in Durham toppled the Confederate statue in front of the old Durham courthouse two days later, on Aug. 14, as a righteous response to Heyer’s murder and to assert that the community would not tolerate white supremacy in any form, including the continued imposition of monuments to racism.On Aug. 18, people came out in force to defend Durham from an announced Ku Klux Klan rally and march through the city. The KKK rally was canceled as word of the resistance spread. Two activists facing charges stemming from the counterprotest go to court in February.Support for the anti-racist freedom fighters has swelled nationally and internationally. On the first day that many of the defendants were scheduled to turn themselves in, hundreds lined up at the Durham courthouse in solidarity, demanding that they all be arrested for fighting white supremacy. Activists from around the U.S. arrived in caravans for the first court date and rally in support of the defendants on Sept. 12, along with a Dutch television crew. Solidarity messages have poured in from around the globe.The state has attempted to quell this outpouring of support in part by delaying and separating the trial dates for the activist defendants. Community activists have organized and held mobilizations for every court date, now monthly since September.Tribunal challenges the stateSeeing such blatant collusion of legal institutions with white supremacist violence, Durham organizers are taking matters into their own hands.“The People’s Tribunal is really meant to pull together members of the Durham community, to bring charges against the sheriff, the police, the court systems and the various systems of racist oppression in the city,” said Takiyah Thompson, a Workers World party member and North Carolina Central University student who has helped organize the event.“Fundamentally, we disagree with their laws,” said Thompson, one of the defendants. “The fact is that this bourgeois democratic society believes that the laws can only be enforced in one direction and not the other. It’s important to challenge that notion, as a gateway for more radical challenges to the state as a whole.”Organizers hope that the People’s Tribunal will strike both an absurd and somber note. Replete with banners, a giant gavel, witnesses, experts and a judge, the event will have all the components of a mock trial, but the crimes it addresses are real.The tribunal will welcome community members to share testimonies of their personal experiences with white supremacy in Durham, offer rebukes of its violent institutions and recommend sentences against those in power. Those who attend will collectively agree upon the verdicts.“It’s a way for people to have a grievance process of their own and to give people an outlet to strengthen community,” Thompson said.To help promote the tribunal and voice solidarity with the defendants, Durham activists encourage allies to participate in the #DefendDurham video challenge. Participants can share a 30-second video on social media (with the hashtag) explaining the reasons for their support and demanding that all charges be dropped.The event has been posted on Facebook, and will be livestreamed.Since promoting these #DefendDurham initiatives, activists have been threatened by local white supremacists. Last week, a camera recorded two hooded figures posting an anti-Semitic, anti-communist flyer on the door of the Durham Solidarity Center. The flyer displayed Nazi slogans.This racist crime and others across Durham have only affirmed for activists the necessity for a People’s Tribunal. “I think that the experience of a lot of people, particularly people of color, poor and working-class people, is that there is not justice in the courts,” said Elena Everett, an anti-racist defendant.“If we can’t find justice in the courts, then we need to create our own spaces to get real stories of what is going on in our communities so that we can come up with our own solutions.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Harvesting Corn on Christmas

first_img Harvesting Corn on Christmas Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Oct 24, 2017 Harvesting Corn on ChristmasBrian BushThe pace of the 2017 harvest has been slow; and, in many parts of Indiana, it is nearing completion and even wrapped for some growers. However, in SE Indiana, the corn harvest is just getting started, according to Brian Bush with DuPont Pioneer. “Some of the corn that was planted at the end of May is just now nearing maturity. We have many fields with corn still at 30% moisture,” he stated. “Some of our producers are only 2 weeks into harvest and are wondering if they will still be cutting corn on Christmas.”Bush reports that yields are highly variable, with some growers experiencing average yields and others surprised by higher than expected totals, “It just depends on the planting dates and the kind of soil you have.”Bush says the wet weather of the past few days and more rain in the forecast has him concerned about the standability of the crop, “A good strong wind could take down a lot of this corn.” He urges growers to check fields and prioritize harvest on stalk integrity. While September provided some great weather for dry down, October and November are not likely to provide the kind of conditions to dry the corn quickly.Listen to the complete interview with Brian Bush under the agronomy tab.

Industry Leaders Address Racial Inequalities, Refi Fees, and Technology

first_img Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago  Print This Post in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News Previous: How the CFPB is Helping Homeowners Struggling with Payments Next: How COVID-19 Impacts Underwriting Standards The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Share Save The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Representatives from organizations including FHFA, FHA, GSEs, and HUD all spoke during a virtual event this week by the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA).See remarks from FHFA’s Mark Calabria, here.  The facilitator of  a virtual event Tuesday said, during a GSE panel, that “collective action is going to be what moves us forward.” That was the general theme as high-level executives from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac addressed questions about pandemic responses, affordable housing, systemic racial inequity in homeownership, and the broader economic future. And later, HUD’s Deputy Secretary Brian Montgomery, along with Secretary Benjamin Carson, also emphasized the importance of “coming together in a nonpartisan, bipartisan way.”As Freddie Mac CEO David Brickman put it, “there will ultimately be a bill to pay, to COVID.” Still, both he and Fannie Mae’s CEO Hugh Frater spoke optimistically about both the GSEs’ new practices, including a new, controversial refinance fee, which Frater called “appropriate and prudent,” and the future in general.MBA Chairman-elect Kristy Fercho during the GSE panel queried the two execs about how successful they believe were their respective approaches to the COVID-19 pandemic.”Excellent,” Brickman said. “I’m proud of the work we’ve done. We fulfilled our mission and played the counter-cyclical role the GSEs are called on to play in times of crisis.”He cited the recently implemented payment deferral option, which both GSEs under their regulating agency, the FHFA, have employed.This COVID-19 Payment Deferral solution returns a homeowner’s monthly mortgage payment to its pre-COVID amount by adding up to 12 months of missed payments to the end of their mortgage term without accruing any additional interest or late fees. The option also protects borrowers from any negative impact on their credit.Says Frater, regarding his GSE’s actions, “Fannie Mae has taken a people-first approach. I’ve urged our team to put themselves in borrowers’ and lenders’ shoes … to remember the human element. We can’t fix all problems but we can provide options,” he said.He points to a new comprehensive web tool,, which he says millions have visited and used over the past months.”Quickly adapting new servicing tools really paid off,” Frater said. “And competencies developed during crisis will help us help people when it’s over.”This is a sentiment of which HUD’s Brian Montgomery spoke during HUD’s afternoon session. He discussed the department’s implementation of new technology. It was the topic of the article he penned for the print edition of DS News, available here.Possibly the most impassioned portion of the sessions related to homeownership and the pains of foreclosure or losing a home. This especially was true when the GSE execs answered questions about racial equality in homeownership.Brickman said, and Frater agreed that for the enterprises they lead, “This summer was a gut-wrenching wake-up call” insofar as inequality and systemic racism is concerned.Frater added that, “as GSEs, our policies and guidelines address these issues … the larger point is we need to change our mindset when it comes to policy. We have to always look for new ways to achieve affordability. That also means looking at historical practices that “have long tails” and still cause racial systemic inequities today, he said.Brickman said that at Freddie, some of the change begins internally. “We have got to change our organization to be more reflective of the communities we serve.” To that end, he says, Freddie has partnered with the Thurgood Marshall Scholarship Fund and the Hispanic Scholarship Fund among other things. “It’s not enough,” he added. “We must be engaged in the mentoring and development of employees.” He points to the company’s internal Business Resource Groups, which fosters an inclusive workforce and which, he says, is “a function we want to be deeply embedded in every business we do.”The men also pointed to programs such as the Supplier Diversity program, as well as the Home Possible program for lower-income borrowers with FHFA loans.HUD’s Montgomery reiterated a sentiment he shared in his recent DS News article: “As the coronavirus pandemic arrived in America, it revealed many of our country’s great strengths, most notably the resilience and determination of our people to overcome adversity. ” All of the aforementioned guests at MBA’s event acknowledged their roles as leaders charged with setting an example for the entire industry.
