Douglas J. Fisher, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Massachusetts, has named The Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas as Missioner for Creation Care.Formerly, Priest Associate at Grace Episcopal Church in Amherst, MA, the Rev. Bullitt-Jonas brings to this new, part-time position her 20 years of environmental activism as an Episcopal priest. Last fall, an anonymous donor gave a generous gift to the diocese to educate God’s people about climate change and to inspire us to care for God’s Creation. The donation enabled the diocese to create this new leadership position toward a renewed understanding of Creation Spirituality and how we might act for the Lord’s Earth.“Margaret will represent the diocese at environmental conferences and other gatherings so the Church will have a seat at the table for one of the most crucial issues of our time,” said Bishop Fisher upon her appointment. “She will help us to develop a strategy for action for the Lord’s Creation and to help us to execute that plan. We are deeply grateful for the generous donor who heard this prayer and for Margaret’s willingness to engage us in this deeply religious mission.”In addition to participating at environmental conferences, she will report on climate action opportunities and build ecumenical, interfaith and secular partnerships. The Rev. Bullitt-Jonas will assume her new position at Diocesan House in Springfield, MA on January 2, 2014.“I am grateful to Bishop Doug Fisher for offering me this opportunity to express my faith in a God who loves and redeems all Creation,” said the Rev. Bullitt-Jonas. “I hope to inspire and support the Diocese of Western Massachusetts as we seek to honor the sacredness of Creation and to make a robust, faithful and coordinated response to climate change.  I am very interested in the ways that religious faith can move us beyond fear, hopelessness or despair as we face the reality of climate change.  I also believe that religious communities and leaders have an important role to play in shaping this country’s growing climate movement.”The Rev. Bullitt-Jonas received a B.A. in 1974 from Stanford University, a Ph.D. in Comparative Literature in 1984 from Harvard University, and a Masters of Divinity in 1988 from Episcopal Divinity School in Cambridge, MA.

Stop Police Brutality Day in Atlanta

first_imgHolding down Peachtree St. intersection during Stop Police Brutality march in Atlanta, Oct. 22.Atlanta — National Stop Police Brutality Day was the culmination of a weekend of events here on Oct. 19-22, bringing together family members of people murdered at the hands of the police, as well as community organizers from Atlanta, Ferguson, Mo. and St. Louis. On Oct. 22, demonstrators gathered outside the CNN Center in downtown Atlanta with large banners and signs declaring “Black Lives Matter.”Jamarion Robinson’s mother and family carried large photos of the devastating damage done to his body, pierced by 76 bullets fired by U.S. Marshals in 2016. Other participating mothers were Felicia Thomas, whose son Nick Thomas was killed by Cobb County police at his job in 2015; Montye Benjamin, whose son Jayvis was shot in 2013 by police in Avondale Estates; and Patricia Scott, whose son Raemawn died in the Fulton County jail in 2003. All have been steadfast in demanding accountability and truth in their children’s deaths.The demonstration coincidentally occurred as largely white crowds were flocking to an Atlanta United soccer game in the nearby stadium. There were some expressions of support and a few hostile remarks, but the mostly nonresponsive passersby intent on getting to the game reflected sharp racial and class divisions, and the complex relationship of sports to oppression and exploitation.Just down the sidewalk at CNN, a group of Kurdish people, waving flags and carrying signs, were demanding open immigration for Kurdish refugees impacted by repression in Turkey and war in Syria and Iraq. At one point, in a show of solidarity, the two crowds became one. Mothers of the slain and Kurdish women then took turns addressing the crowd.Another significant moment was a presentation to the five Kennesaw State University cheerleaders who have “taken a knee” in protest of police brutality. They were given plaques in recognition of their brave acts in openly hostile Cobb County.The closing element of the day was a march through downtown Atlanta.The demonstrators took to the streets, holding up traffic and calling for people to get “off the sidewalks and into the streets” and join them. People lining the sidewalks and in their cars showed support with raised fists and cheers. Several restaurant workers left their jobs to come out and “take a knee” as the protest closed down intersections on Peachtree Street.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

On the picket line

first_imgWorker and public safety top 700,000-member AFGE health concernsThe American Federation of Government Employees, which represents 700,000 federal and D.C. government workers, has been vigorously protesting the Trump administration’s inadequate response to the coronavirus pandemic. AFGE President Everett Kelley said in a memo the union “has serious concerns regarding the health and safety of the federal workforce and with the administration’s efforts to prevent, detect and treat the Coronavirus.” Of major priority are worker safety, protective equipment and hazardous duty pay.Kelley added: “[A]gencies are not communicating with their workforces . . . to allow them to protect themselves or the public in a timely manner to contain the spread of this virus.” He specifically called out the needs of the thousands of workers who have daily contact with people, such as those in the Social Security and Veterans administrations and the Department of Homeland Security.The union asked Congress to push all agencies to formally give permission to all employees who can work via telework to begin doing so immediately. Prior to the health crisis, the administration had been forcefully attempting to cut or cancel telework programs — although telework is mandated in the last contract. The union calls such administration attacks on its members “part of its ongoing war against federal workers and unions.” (, March 10)Trump 2021 budget attacks workers’ rights and vital servicesThe vicious attacks on federal workers’ jobs and benefits, part of the Trump administration agenda beginning in 2017, was ramped up Feb. 10 when the 2021 government budget was released. Not only would the budget cut the already reduced number of federal jobs, but it would slash the number of days of paid leave and the government’s contribution to retirement pay. It would also change the pay system, so it would take longer for workers to advance up the pay scale. AFGE alleges that these changes are aimed at getting federal workers to retire or quit.On top of the changes, the administration has reintroduced its plan to eliminate the Office of Personnel Management, which protects the government’s merit system, and transfer it to the Executive Office of the President — read “obvious nepotism.”But that’s not all. The budget is being used to target vital services that women and gender-oppressed people need. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s historically low budget would be cut by $27 million, making it harder to litigate workplace discrimination and sexual harassment cases. And millions would be chopped from the already underfinanced Violence Against Women Act. (, March 2)UFCW slams Amazon’s job-cutting ‘cashierless’ grocery storesThe Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) denounced Amazon’s opening of a cashier-less grocery store in Seattle. UFCW International President Marc Perrone contends Amazon’s use of cashier-free technology reveals one of its main goals: “eliminate as many jobs as possible as it seeks to take over America’s $800 billion grocery industry.” Calling Amazon “a clear and present danger to millions of good jobs,” Perrone notes: “Amazon might share its cashier-free technology with other retailers and chains, such as movie theaters and airports, which would threaten jobs in these industries.”Perrone is calling on politicians and the public alike “to wake up and act before Amazon and Jeff Bezos do permanent damage to America’s economy and the future of work.” The largest private sector union in the U.S., representing 1.3 million professionals in grocery stores and related industries, UFCW intends to make Amazon’s business model a 2020 election issue. Perrone asks: “[W]ho will be left to buy the company’s products if the job-killing behemoth succeeds in eliminating all the good-paying jobs?” (, March 3)Austin bus drivers’ campaign wins contract without a strikeBus drivers in Austin, Texas, started a “Black Eye” campaign — smearing black makeup or tape under their eyes so they looked like football players — to protest tense contract negotiations, which might have led to a strike. Brent Payne, president of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1091, explained: “[W]e’ve been getting punched in the face by MV Transportation and Capital Metro.” (, Feb. 21)The protest helped win a decent contract without a strike. On March 1, the workers overwhelmingly ratified a contract with 8.5 percent wage increases and improved health benefits. The contract also unites 900 fixed-bus route drivers and maintenance workers who work at two Capital Metro facilities. Payne says, “I am proud of our members. They came together from two different bus depots — where they had been pitted against each other for years — and made their union  . . . stronger.” (, March 1)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Radio Boukman resumes broadcasting two weeks after director’s murder

first_img News March 23, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Radio Boukman resumes broadcasting two weeks after director’s murder News RSF_en October 11, 2019 Find out more Reporters Without Borders hails the courage and perseverance of the staff of Radio Boukman, who resumed broadcasting on 20 March, 15 days after its director-general, Jean Liphète Nelson, was gunned down, and who are determined to maintain his commitment to help the population of Cité Soleil, the Port-au-Prince district where the community radio is based.“The radio station’s programming has resumed and we are continuing to broadcast from our studios in Cité Soleil despite the many suggestions that we should relocate,” news editor Jean Junior Joseph said. “By staying, we are complying with the wishes of Cité Soleil’s population, which has adopted Radio Boukman as its own.”Launched in June 2006 and providing a recognized educational service, Radio Boukman is the only news media based in Cité Soleil, a sprawling shantytown on the northern side of the capital. Named after Dutty Boukman, the “houngan” (Vaudou priest) who started the 1791 slave revolt, it provided a great deal of help to the victims of the January 2010 earthquake.Emotion has been running high in Cité Soleil ever since Nelson’s murder on 5 March. One of his alleged killers was lynched by angry residents. “We were told of the arrest of two other presumed accomplices but we do not know what has happened with the case since then,” Radio Boukman manager Joachim Jorel said.The arrests were made in the course of a major anti-crime operation in the capital that is being carried out jointly by the Haitian National Police (PNH) and members of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), a peacekeeping force.According to the information obtained by Reporters Without Borders, one of the suspects arrested in the Nelson murder investigation is Mackenson Baptiste, a known criminal who recently escaped from prison. So far there is no evidence linking the murder to Nelson’s work.Watch a report about Radio Boukman by the Internet documentary video-makers of Solidar’IT in Haiti.Radio Boukman – la voix de Cité Soleil (Haiti) par AsianProjekt Journalist shot dead amid anti-government protests in Haiti Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice November 14, 2019 Find out more HaïtiAmericas to go furthercenter_img Another journalist murdered in Haiti Receive email alerts Follow the news on Haïti HaïtiAmericas News Help by sharing this information News Organisation June 11, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

NFL commissioner says draft will still include this fan-favorite tradition

first_img Written by April 23, 2020 /Sports News – National NFL commissioner says draft will still include this fan-favorite tradition FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailABC NewsBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(NEW YORK) — NFL dreams will come true at Thursday night’s 2020 draft and although the annual event will be held virtually for the first time due to COVID-19, the commissioner and all 32 teams will be joined online to celebrate and share in the hope-filled evening. Commissioner Roger Goodell joined ABC News’ Good Morning America on Thursday from his basement-turned-miniature draft night studio and shared his expectations for the night that he said will connect fans and players and move one step closer to kicking off the NFL season. “The draft has always been about hope, but this year with all that’s going on and our society and around the globe, we need more experiences together and we need that ability to look forward and maybe have a distraction from all that we’re going through,” Goodell said. “We’ll have over 200 remotes around the country. It will be a way to socialize and bring people together and that’s what the NFL does and so I think we’ll be able to bring a great deal of optimism, not just to our fans but to the fact that businesses continuing to go forward and operations are going forward.”He continued, “This is a really important event to our clubs and helping finalize their rosters and get ready for the season so this is important for us to do it right and doing it from home and doing it within regulations with no exemptions.” While the night will miss some of its hallmark moments, like players walking on stage to hold up their new jersey and shake hands with Goodell, he said fans won’t be disappointed.“There are a couple of things about the draft which I love,” he said. “The interaction with our fans, of course, and they love to boo and I love it myself. So we’re going to find a way to bring that in tonight and hear from our fans directly, because it’s just part of the tradition that we want to continue.” Ohio State star cornerback Jeff Okudah told ESPN, “Even though the draft won’t be like how we envisioned it, it is still going to be crazy just to be a part of it.” “I’m wearing my suit. I gotta look sharp, this is still going to be my day,” fellow draft prospect Ohio State defensive end Chase Young also told ESPN. Each team will be on a video conference together — and since team facilities are closed — the decision makers will gather in a remote version of the war rooms to analyze and discuss their picks before passing it along to the commissioner who will make the announcement.Top prospects, including this year’s presumptive No. 1 pick Louisiana State University quarterback Joe Burrow, were sent cameras and equipment to capture their real-time reactions to the big moment. Goodell said his own home setup will have “three people in here with me and it worked pretty well last night. We were testing some of the technology. So I think we’re ready to go.”Specialists have apparently worked overtime to ensure that there’s enough broadband and digital security for the high-profile and highly-watched event. Even if the streamed event is not flawless, the impressive technical feat will still deliver a dose of sports to a country of fans starved for some excitement.This year’s online festivities will also include a Draft-A-Thon to raise money for COVID-19 relief charities. “We want to pay tremendous respect to our health care workers, our first responders, all the people who have been just heroic in doing such great things in the community,” Goodell said. “The NFL family itself just crossed $80 million into our Draft-A-Thon and that’s been going up rapidly, so we expect to be able to generate with our fans and NFL family collectively a great deal of money that can go to help people in need right now.” As for what Thursday night means for the upcoming NFL season, Goodell said the goal is to “be ready.” “One thing I’ve learned about what we’re going through as a country is you can’t tell a week from now as much less three months from now. So our job is to be ready,” he said. “We obviously will be ready to make alternatives and put public safety No. 1 as we always do and make sure that our fans, our players, all the participants, coaches, everyone, are able to be in a safe environment and make sure that we do it in a way that all of us will be proud of.” Coverage begins Thursday at 6 p.m. ET on ESPN, ABC, NFL Network, ESPN Deportes and will be streaming live on and social media platforms. Round 1 begins at 8 p.m. ET.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.center_img Beau Lundlast_img read more

HMS Prince of Wales at HMNB Portsmouth for first time

first_imgHMS Prince of Wales, the Royal Navy’s second aircraft carrier, sailed into her homeport of Portsmouth for the first time on November 16.It is the second time in two years the city has welcomed one of the UK’s new carriers, following HMS Queen Elizabeth’s arrival in August 2017.Captain Darren Houston, the Commanding Officer of HMS Prince of Wales, said: “Our first entry to Portsmouth represents the successful culmination of the build and sea trials period in which my ship’s company and industry partners have worked so closely together to bring HMS Prince of Wales into service with the fleet.The carrier sailed from Rosyth, where she was assembled, in late September with a mixed ship’s company of Royal Navy sailors (600-plus) and around 300 civilian contractors on board to take her through an autumn of trials in the North Sea.“It’s been a unique experience watching the ship transition from its initial build to an operational warship,” said Air Engineering Technician Anthony Greatorex.HMS Prince of Wales’s arrival means Portsmouth Naval Base is now home to two aircraft carriers.The yard has been modernized to accommodate the two behemoths, with £30 million spent on strengthening and upgrading the base’s Victory Jetty.HMS Prince of Wales arrives after around eight weeks of trials after sailing from Rosyth Dockyard on the Forth eight years after she was laid down.When she sailed beneath the Forth crossings – lowering her main mast to do so – it meant the two largest warships ever built for the Royal Navy were at sea simultaneously, with HMS Queen Elizabeth currently off the east coast of the USA testing her F-35 Lightning fighter jets.Following a brief pit stop in Invergordon, HMS Prince of Wales was tested in heavier seas to see how she handles in challenging weather. The carrier faced Sea State 6 (waves up to 20ft high) and carved through them relatively untroubled.Most recently, she carried out tests on her flight deck to ensure she can now host aircraft permanently on board.HMS Prince of Wales will be formally commissioned before the end of the year.

Lord Patten condemns Brexit immigration plans

first_imgThe Chancellor of Oxford University, Lord Patten, has urged the government to stop treating international students as “economic migrants”.Patten blamed the government’s “obsession” with immigration number targets, which, he argued, it had failed to meet multiple times. Although this claim has been rejected by the Prime Minister, who has insisted on counting students in official immigration figures, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson has backed excluding overseas students from the government’s target to get net migration down to the tens of thousands.Immigration targets have previously helped the government crack down on bogus colleges used as a back route to work in Britain illegally.However, Lord Patten warned about the detrimental impact of classing students in the same category as economic migrants.Patten, who backed the UK remaining in the EU, referred to Theresa May’s speech outlining Brexit plans to build a “global Britain”.He commented: “It would be extraordinary if having become global Britain we were to prevent the huge numbers of international students coming to study.“Why do we deny ourselves, our universities, the benefits of educating more young people from around the world?”He insisted that people understood the difference between a student and an immigrant and the contribution they made to the economy.“So why do we behave so foolishly? Because of our fixation with an immigration target.“We put higher education in a more difficult position, we cut ourselves from a great deal of economic benefits because of that obsession with an immigration target, which we fail to reach, very often because we are growing so rapidly, year after year.”Patten emphasised growing demand in Asia for western higher education. He said: “We have made the choice, global Britain, to cut ourselves off from that. It’s completely crazy.”This news comes amid comments from Oxford’s incoming Head of Brexit Strategy, Professor Alastair Buchan, speaking to the Education Select Committee held in Pembroke college, Oxford, two weeks ago, that a hard Brexit would be “giving up 500 to 950 years of exchange—I think we need to be very cautious.”Carl Gergs, a third year at Pembroke and a German citizen, told Cherwell: “subjecting all international students to a blanket immigration rule in order to ‘clamp down’ on a misusing minority doesn’t seem very efficient at all. Most students are net economic contributors and enrich UK university life – some of them will be excluded or deterred by this system. I can only agree with Lord Patten that this approach is at odds with the vision of a ‘global Britain.’”Steve Sangbeom Heo, international students’ rep at Brasenose college JCR told Cherwell: “I think it’s very unfortunate that the national mood’s becoming more and more insular. To be honest I can’t really think of a good reason why students should count as economic migrants nor understand what  motivated May to argue for this other than political bluff to show that she’s ‘hard on immigration’. But I also think this is hardly surprising given that Theresa May’s currently trying so hard to pander to Brexiteers.”last_img read more
