Photo: Mike Patterson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] Philip and April Schentrup, Episcopalians whose daughter Carmen was one of 17 students and educators killed by a gunman at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, appeared before the House of Bishops on July 7 to ask them to continue their work to end gun violence.The House of Bishops stood in silence as the Schentrup family entered the conference hall at the 79th General Convention and approached the podium.Full ENS coverage of the 79th meeting of General Convention is available here.Standing at the microphone with his wife and family at his side, Schentrup described his daughter as “amazing, compassionate and energetic” who “gave her mom and dad a hug every evening.” She was a straight A student, he said, and a talented musician.“All of Carmen’s dreams came to an end on Ash Wednesday,” he said. That’s when Nikolas Cruz, a 19-year-old former student, walked into the school building on Feb. 14, shot Carmen four times with an AR-15 style rifle, killed 16 others and wounded another 17.The Marjory Stoneman Douglas shooting marked one of the deadliest school shootings in U.S. history. In the first 21 weeks of 2018 alone, there have been a total of 23 school shootings in which individuals have been injured or killed. Nearly 40 have died in the shootings.Schentrup told the bishops that “we’re confronting a sobering fact” in the campaign against gun violence. “We’re in a battle between fear and fact,” he said.He said many advocacy groups have discovered the power of fear with messages to “be prepared because someone’s going to attack your children or destroy your Christian values” and where people are hated “who don’t look like us, act like us.”He applauded the bishops’ statement against gun violence issued earlier this year, and thanked them for their support for his and other families and for hearing their plea to work for an end to gun violence.After Schentrup spoke, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry stood and asked for a moment of silence before leading the bishops and visitors in reciting the Lord’s Prayer.Schentrup’s remarks came a day before a scheduled public witness event organized by Bishops United Against Gun Violence. The event is scheduled for 9:30 a.m. July 8 at Brush Square Park, across the street from the Austin Convention Center where General Convention is meeting.The Schentrups will speak at the event, along with Abigail Zimmerman, a ninth-grader and Episcopalian from Waco, Texas, who co-led a school walkout in March in response to the Douglas High School massacre.Bishops United Against Gun Violence is a group of more than 70 Episcopal bishops that is working to curtail gun violence in the United States. “We believe in a God of life in the face of death who calls our church to speak and act decisively against the unholy trinity of poverty, racism and violence,” according to its website.Following the event, participants will be invited to walk together to the 10:30 a.m. General Convention Eucharist or to attend worship at local Episcopal churches.— Mike Patterson is a San Antonio-based freelance writer and correspondent for the Episcopal News Service.

R House / Frei + Saarinen

Frei + Saarinen’s first constructed statement on how to build a living space now stands in Kilchberg near Zurich: within the familiar structure of a cubic space with circular windows an area of spacious opulence unfolds which is based on three ideas: Save this picture!© Stefan Wülser, ZürichFirstly there is the ground floor which consists of an interlaced spatial concept connecting the East and West gardens through three slightly meandering offset tiers. Illuminated by streaks of light, the L shaped walls are so entwined in each other that Cartesian interaction occurs, this defines the ambiance in the living and eating areas, whose floor areas possesses no less than 14 corners.Save this picture!© Stefan Wülser, ZürichSecondly our standpoint is clear that communal areas should be generously appointed and usable for any activities required (in relation to corresponding, unobtrusively dimensioned individual spaces). This can be most consequently seen on the top floor, which consists of an S shaped continuum including the central hall and the adjoining terrace areas, which can be connected through the opening of fully concealable sliding glass.Save this picture!© Stefan Wülser, ZürichAnd thirdly not all double flight staircases have been set on top of one another which allows for the emergence of a promenade which is affected by a variety of in, through and outward views and highly varied room-heights. The design trajectory is also the connecting element which allows the four floors to be conceived in extremely different ways, without the threat of them becoming separate elements of the whole. Save this picture!© Stefan Wülser, ZürichThat the overlaying of space, its exposure to light and that the view is carefully allocated, is assisted by twenty windows and door openings, this creates a very unique atmosphere, whereby on a subtle level the complex structure of the buildings shell and the interior decoration also play a part. The various spatial layouts on the individual floors have a requirement for a complex supporting structure which is based on the cumulative effect of the shear walls and floors. This also allows the possibility to coordinate a nonsupported parking garage of comparatively enormous dimensions for four automobiles under the house. The ability to arrange special features in conjunction with every day features and to concretize complex spatial constellations with trusted resources appears to be characteristic of our work. Whilst in the St.Joseph rectory it was the wall panels which relativized the dynamic of the space, in Kilchberg it is the interior design as well as the very normal perforated façade which provides for a pleasant level of familiarity.Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessPatricia and Phillip Frost Museum of Science / Grimshaw ArchitectsUnbuilt ProjectThe Rise of the Endless CityArticles Share Projects Architects: Frei + Saarinen Year Completion year of this architecture project 2012 photographs:  Stefan Wülser, ZürichPhotographs:  Stefan Wülser, Zürich+ 33 Share “COPY” Year:  Houses ArchDaily Switzerland ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard R House / Frei + Saarinen ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard “COPY” Photographs Year:  2012 CopyAbout this officeFrei + SaarinenOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesKilchberg (ZH)HousesSwitzerlandPublished on March 13, 2013Cite: “R House / Frei + Saarinen” 13 Mar 2013.

We are pleased to say that since then it is a model that has been admired and copied around the world.”The documentary about the DEC is entitled ‘A Very British Appeal’ and it will be broadcast on ITV at 10.35pm tonight.  The documentary team had unprecedented access inside the DEC during the run up to the Syria Crisis Appeal and also filmed on location in Haiti.

Thanksgiving Food Prices Increase Slightly in Indiana

first_img As Hoosiers prepare for Thanksgiving, many families are reconsidering their traditional holiday plans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. With travel restrictions in place in several parts of the country and gathering size recommendations to consider, many will opt for smaller or even virtual gatherings this year.No matter the size of the celebration, many Hoosiers still plan to prepare a traditional Thanksgiving meal with turkey, stuffing and cranberry sauce. In preparation, Indiana Farm Bureau surveyed shoppers across the state to identify the average price of these traditional Thanksgiving meal items.“There’s no doubt that for many Hoosiers, Thanksgiving will look a little different this year,” said Isabella Chism, INFB 2nd vice president and chair of the Women’s Leadership Committee. “Many families won’t be able to gather together for a large celebration, but we all need something to look forward to this year and there are few things as comforting as a turkey dinner on Thanksgiving!”INFB’s annual Thanksgiving market basket survey shows that Hoosier shoppers who opt for the traditional Thanksgiving meal this year can expect to spend approximately 12% more at the grocery store than in 2019. According to this year’s pricing survey, the individual meal price this year is approximately $4.80. Despite the 12% increase from 2019, this year’s meal price is less than 1% more than what shoppers paid in 2018.The total market basket price of $47.81 includes a 16-pound turkey, ingredients for stuffing and a pumpkin pie, sweet potatoes, rolls, peas, a carrot and celery veggie tray, whole milk, cranberries, whipping cream and miscellaneous baking items such as eggs, sugar and butter. However, according to the National Turkey Federation, there is an increased interest in smaller turkeys this year, or even turkey breast, due to an increase in smaller gatherings.This year, shoppers can expect to pay approximately $1.34 per pound for a whole turkey, or $21.44 for a 16-pound bird. Other traditional Thanksgiving items that Hoosier shoppers can expect to be a bit more expensive this year include boxed stuffing, pumpkin pie filling, rolls, whole milk and whipping cream. Items that may be more affordable this year include sweet potatoes, peas, relish tray and cranberries. All other items remain relatively unchanged.While Indiana is a major turkey-producing state, most of the turkey produced in Indiana becomes deli meat or ground turkey.“Our turkey farmers have been working hard through the pandemic to deliver turkey to our grocery stores,” said Chism. “Whether you purchase a whole turkey this year or even ground turkey or deli meat, you’ll be supporting our turkey producers during an important time of the year for them.”Some Hoosiers may omit the turkey this year and opt for a ham instead. INFB also collected prices for other frequently served Thanksgiving items and found that consumers can expect to pay $10.60 for a 4-pound ham, compared to $9.70 in 2019.Indiana’s survey is completed in conjunction with a national survey administered by the American Farm Bureau Federation. AFBF found that the national per person average for this year’s Thanksgiving meal is $4.70 which is only 10 cents less than Indiana’s average per person meal price this year. Nationally, a total of 230 volunteer shoppers in all 50 states participated this year.The INFB Thanksgiving market basket survey was conducted by volunteer shoppers across the state who collected prices on specific food items from one of their local grocery stores. Volunteer shoppers are asked to look for the best possible prices, without taking advantage of special promotional coupons or purchase deals.Expecting an increase in individuals preparing a Thanksgiving meal for the first time this year, the National Turkey Federation prepared a Thanksgiving 101 guide which includes best practices for preparing a whole bird or smaller turkey breast and more. The guide also includes tips for how to maintain safe practices this Thanksgiving, including a guide for virtual festivities.

When Vega began asking questions, the vice-president left and her security agents attacked the two journalists verbally and physically, breaking Cruz’s camera equipment.This latest incident came just two days after elPeriódico accused the government of spying on it.Editor José Rubén Zamora said the government had to be spying on his newspaper because it issued an official response to an elPeriódico report about the vice-president’s acquisition of a luxurious property before the newspaper had published its report.The government’s response had accused elPeriódico of waging a smear campaign against the president and vice-president.“We condemn this assault on elPeriódico’s journalists,” said Camille Soulier, the head of the Reporters Without Borders Americas desk. “Representatives of a government that claims it is being systematically attacked by a news media cannot legitimately respond by denying access to information or by acts of intimidation.”This is by no means the first time that elPeriódico has been subjected to government intimidation attempts.President Otto Pérez Molina and the vice-president have brought many libel suits against Zamora, who was banned from leaving the country and had his bank accounts frozen last January. ElPeriódico gets no state advertising and its reporters are denied access to the presidential palace.In a separate development, police arrested Prensa Comunitaria journalist Norma Sut Sansir yesterday as she was going to cover a demonstration in Camotán, in the southern department of Chiquimula. Her news organization said she has been falsely accused of attacking police officers.Guatemala is ranked 125th out of 180 countries in the 2014 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

A Single Bench of Justice Avneesh Jhingan observed that merely because the prosecutrix has not supported the allegations in deposition before the Court, it is not enough to grant bail. The Bench further observed that it will be for the Police authorities to investigate the change in stance of the prosecutrix. The order stated, “it would not be out of place to note that the nature of allegations made by the prosecutrix, especially the fact that the objectionable video and photographs were clicked were very serious. Now there appears to be a U-turn. It would be for police authorities, if so advised to look into the said aspect in view of the material available before it.” The observation was made while hearing the third bail application of one Subhash Chander, accused of intoxicating his daughter-in-law, committing rape, making objectionable videos of her, and blackmailing her. Chander was booked by the Haryana Police under Sections 328 (Causing hurt by means of poison, etc. with intent to commit an offence), 376 (Rape) and 506 (criminal intimidation) of IPC. The allegations against him were supported by the prosecutrix’s statement under Section 164 before the Judicial Magistrate. Before the High Court, the Petitioner-accused submitted that the prosecutrix has not supported the allegations while deposing before the Court. Brushing aside this argument, the Single Bench observed that the issue with regard to the contradiction of statement under Section 164 CrPC and deposition before the Court, would be a subject matter of trial. The Bench dismissed the bail application, noting that it is for the trial Court to weigh all the material and evidence before it. Case Title: Subhash Chander v.

Inmates rush to help when officer collapses on road: ‘They stood by and stayed with him’

first_imgSmith Family(ELIZABETHTOWN, N.C.) — Inmates rushed to aid the North Carolina officer overseeing them pick up trash when he collapsed on a road. Despite their efforts to call 911 and look after him, officer James Smith died at the hospital.Chief Deputy Larry Guyton of the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office said “it means a lot to law enforcement” that the inmates stayed at Smith’s side and rushed to get him help.Smith, a roadside supervisor with the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office, suffered a stroke while working with three inmates along a road in Elizabethtown on Wednesday, the sheriff’s office said.The inmates “noticed that he started weaving and stumbling” and helped him to the ground, Guyton told ABC News on Monday.The inmates used Smith’s phone to dial 911 and flagged down a driver and asked him to call for help, too, Guyton said.The three inmates “stood by and stayed with him until EMS and law enforcement arrived,” Guyton said.Smith, 62, died in the hospital Sunday morning, he said.Smith worked with the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office in 2002 and 2003 before heading to the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office where he spent 15 years, Guyton said. Smith returned to the Bladen County Sheriff’s Office in 2018 to work part-time, he said.Smith was not only “well thought of by everyone here,” but also “liked by the inmates,” Guyton said.“They respected him, he treated them well. And it was obvious that their respect for him and concern for him was one of the main reasons they stayed and watched over him until help could arrive,” Guyton said, praising Smith and the inmates.“In this day and time, we’re not the most popular people in the world,” Guyton said of law enforcement, “and it’s nice to know that there are people that still care. It doesn’t matter that they were inmates or not, they were men and human beings, and they reached out to help someone in need.”The inmates are part of the sheriff’s office’s roadside trash pickup program through North Carolina’s misdemeanor confinement program, Guyton said.“The state contracts with local jails to house misdemeanor inmates, and we pull from them, give them an opportunity to work outside the facility. The trade-off is for every 30 days they work, they get four days off their sentence,” he explained.“Just because they end up in jail for a crime, it doesn’t mean they’re bad people,” he added. “We all make mistakes and these men are readily paying for their mistakes, and they’re trying to improve themselves.”Smith will be laid to rest on Friday, said Guyton.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
