Celebrations of marriage equality, court rulings continue across church

There is no next generation – except of course for Islam.“DEARLY beloved, we are gathered together here in the sight of God, and in the face of this company, to join together this Man and this Woman in holy Matrimony; which is an honourable estate, instituted of God, signifying unto us the mystical union that is betwixt Christ and his Church: which holy estate Christ adorned and beautified with his presence and first miracle that he wrought in Cana of Galilee, and is commended of Saint Paul to be honourable among all men: and therefore is not by any to be entered into unadvisedly or lightly; but reverently, discreetly, advisedly, soberly, and in the fear of God. Into this holy estate these two persons present come now to be joined. If any man can show just cause, why they may not lawfully be joined together, let him now speak, or else hereafter for ever hold his peace.”Yes, I object – they are not “man and woman.” Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Belleville, IL Human Sexuality, Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs July 4, 2013 at 1:04 am I have known respectable gay people in and outside of the church. I do not think any of them would approve of a priest dancing the “jig” on the streets of New York in a stole they wore officiating at their first gay wedding. I believe General Convention approved a provisional rite to bless same sex unions which included a conscious clause, not a rite to marry same sex couples. But what to the teachings of the church matter when one has an agenda to promote. “We in the Episcopal Church” don’t seem to think they matter much.

This is not New York. This is not California. This is no cosmopolitan pocket. This is America. I am sorry you are confused but do not understand how any thinking adult can be at this late date. Grow with us. Richard Meadows says: New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books George Elliot says: July 4, 2013 at 12:51 am I have known respectable gay people in and outside of the church. I do not think any of them would approve of a priest dancing the “jig” on the streets of New York in a stole they wore officiating at their first gay wedding. The teaching of the Episcopal Church is that in a Christian marriage “the woman and man enter into a life-long union.” (BCP, 861) I believe General Convention approved a provisional rite to bless same sex unions which included a conscious clause, not a rite to marry same sex couples. But what to the teachings of the church matter when one has an agenda to promote. “We in the Episcopal Church” don’t seem to think they matter much. July 2, 2013 at 8:12 am The Episcopal Church’s trip down the slippery slope is accelerating.TEC has lost the very concept of speaking the truth in love. We are all miserable sinners, and there is no health in us, whether those words were pulled from the Prayer Book or not. Homosexuality is a sin, one of many – but it is the one which the Church has decided is to be glorified rather than called out as disobedience to a holy God.TEC once again continues its course of attempting to remake God in our own image. It’s becoming more and more difficult to stay. July 3, 2013 at 7:01 am I think that the Republic which has survived the Civil War, two devastating World Wars, the Korean War, the Vietnam War and two totally unnecessary Bush Wars plus a 60 year insane costly war on drugs, an oil embargo, the devastation of 9/11 and several economic downturns, not to mention the Monica Lewinsky scandal, can easily survive gay marriage. Have no fear. July 4, 2013 at 3:35 pm Reading these responses to the story about the celebrations of the Supreme Court’s decisions last week has made me very sad. I staunchly support those decisions and rejoice for several gay and lesbian friends now that they are able to marry…at least in some of these United States. On the other hand, I also share with more traditional brothers and sisters in TEC their distress at many of the directions the church is going, chief among them being the way all of us have dealt with the division that these responses demonstrate. This division started long before the issues of homosexuality in the church became the straw that broke the back of some of us. It includes very important matters– the way the liturgy is conducted, our understanding of sin, our response to what has happened to the institution of marriage, the mission of the Gospel, changes in our culture which cause anxiety and anger, and the impact of these changes on our understanding of our faith. These disagreements matter, are not trivial, but they require respectful listening and a curb on the rush to condemn. Simplistic as this may sound I do believe that unless we remember that we are children of the God we know in Jesus Christ and act on it, this church is doomed. The two parties that have split the church share a sense of self-righteousness about our understanding of the faith which has closed us off from listening to each other. I’m not saying that listening to each other will be easy, but it’s better than drawing away from each other while hurling disdain at the “enemy”. Let’s ask questions of each other instead of expressing condemnation and sarcasm.Finally, the Court did not declare Prop. 8 unconstitutional. It did not rule on the constitutionality of same sex marriage at all: that battle is still out there. It simply threw the case back to California, saying that the plaintiffs had no legal standing. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI David Yarbrough says: July 2, 2013 at 1:41 pm Rev. Canon Susan Russell, you proclaimed to the world as I do that you are disciple of Lord Jesus Christ, Son of Almighty God, maker of whole universe and its contained living and dead. And you are our Shepard maintaining apostolic succession since Lord Jesus established Church thru solid rock faith of Peter, to take care of His sheep. We know Almighty God is holding all knowledge of truth and His creation is complete and has no mistake. He gave all His living creation a unique identity and unique role to play to glorify His name as long we breathe His breath and later our body goes to dust where it belong to and spirit goes to God from where it came .Question is “If” homosexual marriage was God’s plan since beginning of life 1) why did God feel necessity to create opposite sex out of men’s body part? 2) Why did God curse women with child delivering pain, before she can enjoy fruits of her pain delivering a child with happy natural family life and gay family without child delivery pain, but still enjoy family? Assuming homosexual marriage is God’s plan, and gays are naturally carefree. Why do some gay cry for baby? If they cry for baby why does lesbian not marry a man and gay-man marry a woman and make a natural family as God the Almighty plan for to create woman as partner? Childless couples are blessed by God, as it is no fault of them and they are blessed by God when they mitigate their childless pain by rearing orphan or abused child. No person is absolute or 100% gay or 100% bisexual. If it is not true then, people like Bishop Robinson could not be biological father of children or a lesbian could not be biological mother. God is righteous God He did not favor gay couple with a child without child delivering pain. It is true saying “No pain no gain”. May God bless you! Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Tom Blair says: Same-Sex Blessings, Joseph F Foster says: July 2, 2013 at 1:41 pm I love seeing religious organizations prove that acceptance, love, and embracing differences are not only compatible with religion, they’re the foundation of it! (Besides, as a card-carrying Jewish mother, of course I hope I have a gay son, so he’ll never replace me with another woman . . . )People who object to same-sex marriage on religious grounds should look at the states which have had marriage equality for a few years, and it’s clear that none of those dire predictions by opponents have come true. No one is marrying their pets, it’s still legal to play hockey in Canada, there hasn’t been mass public fornication in Vermont, and California has not suddenly decided to force all men to shave their legs. In fact, as this song makes clear, “Western Civilization Is Still Intact” – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y_Gz3yx2YGs Submit an Event Listing July 2, 2013 at 5:29 pm And we others in Cincinnati were not joyful but fearful for the future of the Republic. And I will vote against making homosexual marriage legal in Ohio.

Or the celebrations are like kissing you sister. Peace and love. Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH July 2, 2013 at 5:32 pm Remember that ENS’s job is to push the “official” line, i.e. the line touted by the Presiding Bishop and much of the hierarchy. July 1, 2013 at 10:12 pm Mr Blair, with all due respect, then you should also be objecting when opposite sex couples who cannot bear children marry. She may be in menopause, he may be infertile. They cannot create another generation naturally either. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 Joseph F Foster says: Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET July 1, 2013 at 9:42 pm I’m confused when the greater New York and Californian dioceses celebrate their causes that it’s equated by ENS to a movement “across the Church”. This is one reason that it will be a very good thing when the Church Center moves away from the one small island called Manhattan. How about giving more details about the celebrations so that the rest of the Church can get the whole, vivid, unforgettable point? Like really describing the Gay Disco Mass held every last Sunday in June by St. Mark’s in New York City. The Eucharist’s worship space is changed by the lesbian priest into a dance floor complete with a hovering disco ball while the celebrant and worship leaders employ secular music like “We Are Family” and “Love Train” to affirm the congregation. This kind of Eucharist is held in the same New York diocese where monsters, ghouls, and the undead parade in their cathedral at Halloween to an impressed assembly. Such cultural self-affirmation has nothing in common with the Scripture’s example of John the Baptist who called the disciples to become lesser so that “He (Jesus) can become greater”. Most of the Church is not becoming the cultural “new normal” by disgracing the Eucharist for self–appreciation. Perhaps it’s time to stop calling ourselves the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America. The United States has over 320 million people, of which the Episcopal Church’s attendees comprise a fragment. Many of the policies, values, and concerns of our leaders do not reflect the Christian expressions of this nation of which we are supposed to be a missionary society, but instead reflect a very small liberal revisionist concern of a few cosmopolitan pockets.

Submit a Press Release July 2, 2013 at 1:09 pm We in Cincinnati were joyful, as members of the multicultural Church of Our Saviour/La Iglesia de Nuestro Salvador carried banners in the Pride Parade for our parish (“Out since 1970”) and Integrity; joined by friends from many other Episcopal congregations. One dear couple carried a sign “22 years of UNwedded bliss: Ohio, let’s make it legal!” Press Release Service July 6, 2013 at 9:03 am Meh.We have a pretty full nursery at St. Augustine’s Episcopal in Croton-on-Hudson, NY.No one much cares if the parents are gay, straight, married, divorced, single or widowed.All are welcome. July 16, 2013 at 6:31 pm Here in San Diego, CA, we have just come through our Pride Parade/Festival. Over 200,000 people came out for the celebration, including a contingent of 100+ Episcopalian priests and lay person from St. Paul’s Cathedral/SD. Prop 8 was declared unconstitution by the US district court and that ruling was left standing by SCOTUS. And so we all are celebrating in California.You say, “I also share with more traditional brothers and sisters in TEC their distress at many of the directions the church is going, chief among them being the way all of us have dealt with the division that these responses demonstrate.” And how do you and the traditionalists think we GLBT Episcopalians across the nation have felt all these years about the path of unequal treatment TEC has been following with respect to us? Surely you do not forget the hateful resolution the Lambath Conference passed against GLBT Episcopalians/Anglicans? Surely you remember how our belovid Bishop Robinson was treated by some in the House of Bishops, how the ABC banned him from coming to the conference? Where were the traditionalists trying to truly “listen to/with us.” Did they tarry even a minute to worry about us in their haste to take anti-GLBT actions within TEC? I ask you these questions in keeping with your message of July 4, Independence Day. Episcopal Diocese of New York Bishop Andrew M.L. Dietsche holds up a sign while riding a float during New York’s Pride Parade. Photo: Sharon Sheridan/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Steve Price’s white gardenia boutonniere and diamond pinkie ring were bittersweet tributes among a sea of joy at the June 27 “Celebration of Equality” at St. John’s Pro-Cathedral in Los Angeles.From Los Angeles to New York, worshippers gathered across the church to celebrate in very public and very personal ways, after the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and ruled California’s ban on gay marriage (Proposition 8) unconstitutional.The court’s decisions extended many previously denied federal benefits to same-sex couples married in the U.S. states that allow such unions and paved the way for gay marriages to resume in California.“I’ve been fighting this fight for 30 years,” said Price, a co-founder of the Holy Spirit emerging Episcopal community in Silver Lake, California.While celebrating being able to “experience God’s love at this moment with one another,” Price said his gardenia was a tribute to “the ghosts of all those people who didn’t make it to the finish line.” The diamond was a family heirloom he made into a pinkie ring. It would have been a wedding ring, but his partner “died of AIDS; he’s not here for this.”Others at the celebration wore gay pride t-shirts bearing the familiar slogan: “The Episcopal Church welcomes you.”Diocese of Los Angeles Bishop Suffragan Mary Glasspool sparked exuberant cheers and sustained thunderous applause among about two hundred worshippers at the June 27 Los Angeles service with just her opening remark: “A lot has happened this past week.”“It is interesting to note how much does seem to happen in late June,” added Glasspool, who in 2009 became the first openly gay, partnered female priest to be elected a bishop in the Episcopal Church.For example, she said, June 28 was the 44th anniversary of the beginning of the Stonewall Riots, “that series of events which, for many people, marked the beginning of the gay rights movement in this country.”And “June 24, was the 40th anniversary of the UpStairs Lounge arson attack in New Orleans, which killed 32 people and elicited remarkable little attention at the time and an even shameful lack of response from anyone in authority, including leaders of religious institutions,” added Glasspool.She told the joyous gathering that she chose one of the evening’s lessons (Romans 8:35-39) “because it was the one piece of Scripture that kept me in the church when I was working through my own sexuality and thought maybe God hated me because I was a lesbian,” she said.But she added that, if given the opportunity again she might have chosen the Parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard (Matthew 20:1-16) instead because it says “something about God’s overwhelming grace given to everyone who will receive it, and our human and many times destructive difficulty in celebrating the gifts that another receives, in celebrating our diversity.”She challenged the gathering to move from “equality to solidarity,” learning to authentically rejoice in the gifts others receive. “How can we work together to further the reign of God?”The United States was also celebrating Gay Pride Week and in many places, many celebrations of the week and the court rulings became one.Bishop J. Jon Bruno of the Diocese of Los Angeles, assisted by deacon Margaret McCauley and Archdeacon Joanne Leslie, celebrates Eucharist flanked by two LGBT couples at a “celebration of equality” service at the Pro-Cathedral of St. John on June 27. Photo: Janet KawamotoIn New York City, more than 100 people began the day worshiping at the annual disco Pride Mass at St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery. The service started with a rainbow-clad Earl Giaquinto singing “Over the Rainbow” and ended with dancing beneath a strobe light and colored spotlights.With live music quietly playing behind her, the Rev. Stephanie Spellers, canon for missional vitality for the Diocese of Long Island, celebrated the Eucharist wearing the green chasuble of retired Massachusetts Bishop Suffragan Barbara Harris, the first woman ordained bishop in the Anglican Communion.The day’s second reading was an excerpt from the Supreme Court ruling overturning parts of DOMA.“We have a lot to celebrate today,” the Rev. Winnie Varghese, St. Mark’s rector, said in her sermon. “When government acts on behalf of people, it feels like liberation.”When Jesus set his face for Jerusalem, he headed toward the center of power, just as prophets like Elisha did to “proclaim what is right in the cities of the king,” she said. Varghese urged worshippers to celebrate but also to continue that prophetic role in pushing for rights for all people.The Rev.

Photo:Sharon Sheridan/Episcopal News ServiceOn Manhattan’s 38th Street, the Rev. Megan Sanders, interim rector at the Church of St. Andrew on Staten Island, celebrated a Eucharist planned by the NYC Metro Chapter of Integrity for marchers unable to attend church before the parade along Fifth Avenue. Sanders, who recently married Kristin Robyn, said she “cried in my car all the way to work” when she heard about the Supreme Court ruling. “I was so excited, but also unsure of what this means and how do we protect people who aren’t married.”In the parade, Episcopalians from the dioceses of New York and Newark marched carrying church banners in front of a float. New York Bishop Andrew M.L. Dietsche and his wife Margaret waved from the float to crowds lining city streets, who were dancing to the float’s music and cheering. One male couple stood, dressed in white, beneath a sign saying “Just married today.” One of the grooms mouthed the words “thank you” as the float passed. At several spots, including the Episcopal Church of the Ascension, volunteers handed out water to marchers.“I’m happy to be here,” Dietsche said, noting the diocese’s support for marriage equality and full inclusion of LGBT people within the church. “I think that people are feeling a new day in America, and we just hope to be part of it and celebrate.”After the parade, Dietsche participated in and spoke briefly at a Pride Evensong at St. Luke in the Fields.“We are witnessing as people of faith a monumental shift in the hearts and minds of people … at an astonishing speed,” he said.The church’s parade float is “enormously important,” he added. “It says the Episcopal Church welcomes you, and that’s a message that is extremely important for the church to express in the LGBT community, because it didn’t always. Maybe we’re beginning to heal some of the damage that has been done in the past by the church.”The Rev. Barbara Lundblad, Lutheran pastor and preaching professor at Union Theological Seminary, preached on Luke’s Gospel of the widow and the unjust judge.“We have to keep pestering until every person in the country has the right to vote and has the right to marry and has the right to be treated well, including people who are single,” she said. “It is possible to celebrate and keep pestering. It may be the only faithful way to celebrate in this time in our history.”Wearing a stole she made for officiating at her first gay wedding, the Rev. Susan Copley, rector of Christ Episcopal Church and San Marcos Mission in Tarrytown, New York, marches in the New York Pride Parade on June 30.

Gary Hall, dean, in a June 30 sermon.The cathedral bells had pealed at noon “as a sign of unity with the LGBT community,” according to a cathedral press release. Hundreds of people gathered at the cathedral to celebrate the Supreme Court decisions.More than one hundred people attended a June 27 “nuts and bolts” forum at St. Margaret’s Church in Palm Desert, California, in the Diocese of San Diego, according to the Rev. Lane Hensley, rector.Hensley, who said he is scheduled to officiate at a same-sex wedding in September, said the forum was intended to begin a conversation about the practicalities of living into the court’s decisions.On June 30, Bishop Mark Holmerud of the Sierra Pacific Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America and Diocese of California Bishop Marc Andrus preached and presided, respectively, at an open-air Gay Pride Parade Eucharist just before San Francisco’s 43rd annual Pride Celebration.On the day of the Supreme Court’s decisions, Andrus wrote on his blog that being at San Francisco City early that morning to await the announcement from Washington, D.C. “with the statue and spirit of martyred San Francisco supervisor Harvey Milk looking down on us as current Board of Supervisors President David Chiu noted, was to be grateful for the work, witness, and sacrifice of all those present, all those in many other places, and those whose work provided the base upon which we now stand.”Andrus thanked the clergy and lay people of the Diocese of California “who have been so faithful in their struggle to bring this moment to reality, over decades” and the Episcopal bishops of dioceses in the state of California and the Episcopal bishops of 22 dioceses who joined him in signing two amicus briefs filed in the cases.–The Rev.

What is Holy Matrimony?A. Holy Matrimony is Christian marriage, in which the woman and man enter into a life-long union, … (1979 BCP, 861)“In those days Israel had no king, so the people did whatever seemed right in their own eyes.” (Judges 21:25) Rector Collierville, TN George Elliot says: Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS July 3, 2013 at 12:23 pm For my part I have no fear about the Republic because God has granted governments to rise and fall and not one has ever lasted intact. We’ll enjoy the blessings of a republic and liberty through a time that God allows. I am more concerned – fearful even – that too many decisions are being made on this and other issues based on human reason and a sense of perceived fairness to the total exclusion of Jesus’ plain reiteration about what marriage actually is. For those who wish to consult the Lord, please refer to Matthew 19 where Christ himself quotes Genesis 2. After reading those passages the Church has no permission whatsoever by Christ to change the design of marriage – unless human reason matters more – and it seems to. For that, I not only fear but tremble for the blasphemy. July 3, 2013 at 11:45 am Minnesota is on the North Coast. This has largely been led by littoral liberals.

I did go in for a dermatologist visit, and got about 12 to 13 spots treated, but that the doctor didn’t believe was malignant. The doctor used a stainless steel gun type blaster with liquid nitrogen and let me tell you, it hurts like hell! When I got home, I had these big huge rounded half inch tall spots all over me, the size of quarters, that looked horrible. I discovered in a bright light, that it was blisters! About a month to heal, so said the doctor. I hope that takes care of those places, and that it is not melanoma. Lesions I worried about, the doctor wasn’t concerned about, but things that looked like nothing, she looked at very hard, like a tiny little speck on me, for example. From Florida Hospital Apopka 1 COMMENT Please enter your name here Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply It’s that time of year again that Floridians feel coming around the corner: hot, humid, rainy, Florida summer. For most people, it can be an inconvenience but for some, it can be a real danger. For runners though, it can be a mixed blessing.To find out how to stay safe and make the most out of this Summer for runners, we contacted Florida Hospital’s own Lauren Sperling, Physical Therapy Assistant and 20-year veteran runner, for advice.“The most important thing to remember is to stay hydrated,” Sperling said. “Runners should always drink a glass of water before running and bring water with them to drink as they go. CamelBaks® or similar products are great but a bottle of water works just as well. With temperatures easily reaching the high 80’s even in the morning and with humidity as high as 100 percent, the risk of dehydration and heat exhaustion is very real. High humidity is dangerous because you don’t sweat as much as you normally would when it’s humid, and the body relies on sweating for cooling down your body.”Lauren recommends running in the morning or evening hours when temperatures are generally lower than the blazing afternoon heat but, “If your schedule doesn’t allow for it and you find yourself having to run in the afternoon sun, you should find a path with shade, make sure you’re wearing at least an SPF 15 or higher sunscreen, and take regular walking breaks to rehydrate and cool down.”Sports drinks or waters enhanced with electrolytes are also recommended and, “If you don’t want that much sugar from your sports drink you can do what I do and cut it with half water. That way you still get some of the energy and the electrolytes but with fewer calories,” Sperling said.“Training in the Summer should be less about your pace or times and more about how you feel doing it. Running in high humidity slows runner’s times dramatically and can be very discouraging and frustrating but you really shouldn’t let it get to you. Come Fall, your times will be back where you expect them to be or even better for having trained in harsh conditions,” Sperling said encouragingly.“It can take somewhere between two weeks to a month to acclimate to the heat and humidity and everyone’s different, so don’t be too hard on yourself. For me, it takes about a month or a little longer some years to get back to my normal runs. But by fall, I’m back in top form and ready to race,” Sperling added.As for proper shoes and clothing for running in the Florida heat and humidity, Lauren recommends stopping by Florida Hospital partner, Track Shack, at 1104 N. Mills Ave. in Orlando. “They’ve got a great selection of products and a knowledgeable staff that can advise you on getting the right gear for your run, any time of the year.” But for summer months she advises wearing well-ventilated shoes with clothing that breathes well and wicks moisture away.Symptoms of Heat Exhaustion and Heat StrokeIf you experience the following symptoms you should immediately move to a cooler place, stop exercising, and cool down by pouring chilled water over your head, ears, neck and wrists or use wet cloths, compresses, and fanning. If symptoms persist, you may need to seek medical attention.Watch for:Cool, moist skinDark urineDizziness, lightheadednessHeadachesNausea and vomitingWeaknessIf symptoms worsen, seek medical attention immediately by calling 911 (or your local emergency number) right away. Worsening symptoms can include:Dry, hot, and red skinExtreme confusionFever (temperature above 104 degrees)Irrational behaviorRapid, shallow breathingRapid, weak pulseSeizuresUnconsciousnessFor questions about running or starting a workout plan that’s appropriate for you, visit FHSportsMed.com or call (407) 303-8080 to talk to one of our qualified physical therapists or exercise physiologists.

A relatively undistinguished 1960s block in Fitzrovia has been transformed by this highly distinctive refurbishment scheme, which increases the office and residential accommodation and gives the building a striking new identity. Using imaginative and sensitive design, the resultant scheme has created 12 new luxury apartments by extending the rear elevation, creating three new penthouse apartments on the existing penthouse level and adding an extra floor which contains a fourth penthouse.

In response to these contrasting conditions, a highly modelled brass-clad elevation was created at the rear of the building which greatly enhances the appearance of this fascinating pocket of urban space. Each apartment features a projecting balcony with a perforated brass screen which mirrors the mews facade pattern and blends harmoniously with the neighbouring buildings.

The unique appearance of the brass cladding will gradually weather and evolve over time due to the oxidisation process.Save this picture!© Zander OlsenProject gallerySee allShow lessChangsha Songya Hu Mixed-Use Project / Steinberg ArchitectsArticlesTodd Saunders Lecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in MunichArticlesProject locationAddress:London, UKLocation to be used only as a reference.

That architecture makes some benefits for the client such as keeping adequate privacy among the family. And client can sleep without any concern for disturbing noise of the other family members after his/her night shift work.Save this picture!DiagramWe designed the gabled folded-plate big roof which reaches ground at its one side on each “divided house.” The roof keeps off rain throughout the year, chill northwest wind and snow in winter and strong afternoon sunlight in summer. And the roof can keep the client’s privacy from neighbor houses.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaIn addition, natural sunlight comes in through the gap between the roof and “divided houses.” So that inside the house is bright enough in daytime without lightings.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaThe big roof bulges for south side and west side. So that it blocks out direct daylight in summer and get a ventilation and comfortable housing space.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaIn the living room maximum height of the roof is 7.5 meters. The roof has an opening and a fan which has thermal sensor. They work for heat rejection and gives comfortable housing environment.Save this picture!Floor PlanIn winter the roof can bring in direct daylight due to low solar altitude and accumulate the heat into mortar floor. Floor heating system is only used at night time as an auxiliary use. In sort, we provide the comfortable housing space with less and less electrical facilities.Save this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaWe designed that the roof wrap around the “divided houses.” It gives that the client family feels their own bond. And the people come and go between each “divided house” which is private space and the living room like outside which is opened share space for the family.We hope that the house helps client family’s warm and fulfill life to live together under the big roof.Project gallerySee allShow lessUruguai Station / JBMC ARCHITECTSSelected ProjectsTranslating Smiljan Radić’s Serpentine Pavilion from Fantasy to FabricationArticles Share ArchDaily “COPY” photographs:  Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaPhotographs:  Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaSave this picture!© Yohei Sasakura / Sasa no kurasyaText description provided by the architects.

Our Licence to Operate scheme, on which the CRSS is based, has shown that a consistent and methodical approach can work very well in the charity retail sector. We’re not complacent and safeguarding must always be a key priority for all colleagues. I am very pleased that we have been able to help CRA share our learning with the sector as a whole.”The scheme officially launched on 20 February. About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

The Charity Retail Association (CRA) has launched a scheme to help charity shops with their safeguarding.The Charity Retail Safeguarding Scheme (CRSS) has been developed in conjunction with Barnardo’s to encourage charity retailers to follow a consistent set of safeguarding principles.

This scheme provides an excellent framework within which charity retailers can operate their safeguarding processes, taking a big step towards ensuring there is even more focus on keeping staff, volunteers and customers safe.

No to U.S. anti-missile system in south Korea

first_imgEighty people came out Oct. 20 in New York City to protest the installation of the Terminal High Altitude Area Defense (THAAD) anti-missile system in south Korea.The event was part of worldwide rallies that took place in Washington, D.C., California and Korea. The New York protest was held in Manhattan’s Koreatown, near Herald Square.Many Korean Americans spoke in opposition to this dangerous weapons system. So did representatives from the Filipino group BAYAN and Veterans for Peace. Both the Raging Grannies and a duo from the Catholic Worker movement performed.Representing the International Action Center, Steve Millies told the crowd, “As a retired Amtrak worker I know this THAAD missile system is a nuclear train wreck. There’s nothing defensive about THAAD. Like the Star Wars program started by racist Reagan, THAAD is really a nuclear first-strike weapon.“If the utterly mad generals and admirals in the Pentagon think that they are protected from retaliation by THAAD, they are much more likely to launch a nuclear first strike on the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and the People’s Republic of China. That’s what Generals Curtis B. LeMay and Lyman Lemnitzer wanted to do a half century ago.“What Koreans need to be protected against is from what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. called ‘the greatest purveyor of violence’ — Wall Street’s war machine.“Thirty thousand Korean slave laborers were burned alive by the U.S. atom bomb dropped on Hiroshima — an act of total barbarism. Forty years earlier President Teddy Roosevelt got a Nobel Peace Prize for handing Korea over to the Japanese Empire in a treaty signed in Portsmouth, N.H.“It was future Secretary of State Dean Rusk — a war criminal who helped kill millions of Vietnamese and Laotian people — who drew up the map that divided Korea along the 38th parallel.“Wall Street banksters like Rockefeller lawyer John Foster Dulles provoked the Korean War in which 4 million Koreans were killed. Dropping napalm and white phosphorous bombs on human flesh didn’t satisfy U.S. big business. Future Treasury Secretary Lloyd Bentsen demanded atom bombs be dropped on ­Koreans.“Instead of installing THAAD, what the U.S. needs to do is to sign a peace treaty with the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea and get out of Asia. The Pacific Ocean is not a U.S. lake.“No to THAAD! U.S. out of Korea! ­Korea is one!”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

US congress to probe Yahoo!’s role in cyber-dissident Shi Tao’s arrest

At the time, Yahoo! defended its cooperation with the police by claiming that it had not been told anything about the nature of the investigation and was just complying with Chinese law.Over 16 years ago, Reporters without Borders created its “Sponsorship Programme” and called upon the international media to select and support an imprisoned journalist. Currently, Shi Tao is sponsored by Miljörapporten (Sweden), Télé Bruxelles (Belgium) News News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Democracies need “reciprocity mechanism” to combat propaganda by authoritarian regimes Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders hails a US congressional decision to investigate Yahoo!’s role in cyber-dissident Shi Tao’s arrest and conviction on a charge of “illegally divulging state secrets abroad,” for which he was sentenced to 10 years in prison.“Yahoo!’s confused statements must finally be clarified,” the press freedom organisation said. “It is time the US corporation recognised its mistakes and accepted the consequences.”Announcing the investigation on 3 August, House of Representatives foreign affairs committee chairman Tom Lantos said it would be shameful it was confirmed that Yahoo! had known why the Chinese police requested the information that enabled them to arrest Shi. “Covering up such a despicable practice when congress seeks an explanation is a serious offense,” Lantos said, adding that, “for a firm engaged in the information industry, Yahoo! sure has a lot of secrecy to answer for.”Yahoo! executive Michael Callahan told a US congressional committee in February 2006 that his company had been told nothing about the content of the investigation into Shi Tao which the Chinese authorities began in 2004. But in fact, China’s Department of State Security sent Yahoo! a document dated 22 April 2004 explaining that the authorities wanted information about an Internet user suspected of “illegally providing state secrets to foreign institutions.” ChinaAsia – Pacific China’s Cyber ​​Censorship Figureslast_img read more

Iran tries to censor coverage of protests by media based abroad
