Philippines bishop calls for resumption of peace talks

June 20, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ercinbyyl.

first_img Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Submit an Event Listing [Anglican Communion News Service] The bishop of Northern Philippines in the Episcopal Church of the Philippines, the Rt. Rev. Brent Harry Wanas Alawas, has called for the resumption of peace talks between the National Democratic Front (NDFP) and the Government of the Philippines.Alawas made his comments at a peace rally earlier this month. Thousands of students, employees from the government and non-governmental organizations and many others marched around Bontoc, the central town of the Mountain Province, before converging at the Mountain Province Plaza for an Indignation Rally denouncing the recent New People’s Army ambush in which a police officer was killed and nine others injured.He began his speech with the Hebrew greeting Shalom Beharim, which means peace be upon the mountains, before saying: “We firmly believe that violence is not the way to peace and development.”The bishop added: “Violence does not solve problems; it makes our problems worse. The death, for example, of a soldier or a rebel makes orphans out of children and widows out of mothers. It deprives the affected family, whether soldier, policeman or rebel of its breadwinner, and it causes grief and hatred where there were none before.”He added: “We join other peace advocates and strongly urge the Philippine Government and the National Democratic Front to return to the negotiating table and resume the peace negotiations as soon as possible. The resumption of the peace talks will provide another chance for peace to prevail. It will give us a reason to hope that the causes of the festering problems besetting our province and nation will be addressed in a peaceful way. Meanwhile, the violence must stop: no more ambushes!

It fills ‘the gap’in between its people”Save this picture!Section 1The project is located in Bokjeong-dong, South Korea. Being an area that has a couple of universities nearby, a demand for student studio-type accommodations have significantly risen in the past years. Being contiguous with Seoul, the office working, white-collared demographic has also joined the frenzy and has been a factor in the demand for residential units as well. Because of this, the area has become very crowded with multi-dwelling units, studios and student accommodations.Save this picture!© Woohyun KangThe typical character of high density residential areas in the capital such as the monotonous and generic looking units – which were designed for maximum profit and efficiency of space has left residents with living spaces that were poorly designed to support the ideal lifestyle and routine.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanThe concept of the Gap house is to support new life style of the young, single demographic household by sharing common spaces such as the living room, kitchen, and dining area. Archihood WXY focused on a design that creates a balance between the common and private spaces deeply considering the ‘share house’ amenity. The balance is coordinated by the outdoor space which is defined to ’The Gap’ – a design which helps bring in nature to the residents and encourage interaction and mingling amongst housemates.Save this picture!© Woohyun KangOne large sized ‘Gap’ is a courtyard – a sharing open space through easily accessible pilotis. The front and rear façade get advantage of air ventilation and natural sunlight from the south through ‘the Gap’. The courtyard is originally inspired by a low wooden bench with deep, green shade under Korean zelkova where villagers used to gather. There also become a sense of place where people who walk the ally like to stop by and sit to break and talk each other.Save this picture!© Woohyun KangThe smaller scaled ‘Gap’ represents the balconies of the six units. Designed to open up to the outdoor & courtyard, residents can feel nature and communicate with the neighbors. Typically, balconies placed in front of the house have caused serious privacy issues because of very close distance from neighbor. To prevent this, balconies are designed to be more linear in shape and are placed deep inside each of the units to keep onlookers from outside from looking in.Save this picture!Fourth Floor PlanThe courtyard makes this possible to design. In addition, each floor balcony is laid-out in a crisscross pattern to further enhance the privacy between floors.Save this picture!© Woohyun KangThe Gap house invites people who like to breath and enjoy peace of mind by escaping from their busy and complicated city life.Save this picture!© Woohyun KangProject gallerySee allShow lessGrigio / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected ProjectsBaldivis Secondary College / JCY Architects and Urban DesignersSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Bokjeong-dong, Sujeong-gu, Seongnam-si, Gyeonggi-do, South KoreaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Chicago education workers strike for their students

June 15, 2021 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: ercinbyyl.

first_imgChicago, Oct. 17.On Oct. 17, the Chicago Teachers Union – 25,000 strong – struck their school district, which is the third largest in the U.S. They were joined by 7,500 education workers from Service Employees Union (SEIU) Local 73. By Oct. 21, the CTU strike had entered its third day. These education workers are advocating for their students and going on the offensive against school privatization and austerity measures. Since 2012, the CTU has prioritized rank-and-file activism, a tactic that influenced Red for Ed education actions that have rocked the U.S. and Puerto Rico since 2018. The launch of the strike is covered in this Oct. 18 article reprinted from Fightback News! (fightbacknews.org)Chicago — Picket lines went up at hundreds of schools across Chicago at 6:30 a.m. Oct. 17. The Chicago Teachers Union (CTU) walked out for their third strike since 2012. For the more than 7,000 members of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Local 73 [joining them], this is an historic first strike, and the first against Chicago’s new mayor, Lori Lightfoot.In the afternoon, the strikers went downtown in a river of red — the color of CTU — and purple — the color of SEIU. For over two hours, more than 20,000 marched back and forth, surrounding the Board of Education and City Hall buildings. They chanted, “When education is under attack, what do we do? Stand up, fight back!”Sarah Chambers, a special education teacher at Alcott College Prep in the Roscoe Village neighborhood, helped lead picketing at her school. She is an area captain, so she then visited the other picket lines in the nearby schools. As a member of the 40-person bargaining committee for CTU, she then sat in on the bargaining, and finally joined with her co-workers at the massive rally in the Loop, Chicago’s central business district.Talking to Fight Back!, Chambers explained, “This strike of more than 30,000 teachers, teacher assistants, clinicians, and special ed classroom assistants with CTU and SEIU is about justice for Black and brown students in the city of Chicago. They deserve all the support in their schools, [and] support to deal with the trauma they experience living in the oppressive, racist system in Chicago means full-time social workers, nurses and restorative justice coordinators.“Our students deserve class-size caps, with special education support, more resources, and fully funded schools.“Lori Lightfoot has made it clear that she is choosing to support the rich people in Chicago by giving them $2.4 billion in TIF [Tax Increment Financing] money, instead of putting money into our schools.”When asked about the outcome of this strike, Chambers didn’t pause. “We are united and strong. We know we will win.”Chicago, Oct. 17.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

NCAA on Wednesday, ruling that the NCAA violated antitrust laws in giving no compensation to players after using their likeness and names for NCAA profit. O’Bannon, a former UCLA basketball player, originally won his lawsuit in 2014.NCAA President Mark Emmert said in a statement that he stands behind the court’s ruling to prevent the extra payment plan.“We agree with the court that the injunction ‘allowing students to be paid in cash compensation of up to $5,000 per year was erroneous,” Emmert said.Emmert however was critical of the court’s mandate to allow schools to compensate players in tuition costs.“Since Aug. 1, the NCAA has allowed member schools to provide up to the full cost of attendance, and we disagree that it should be mandated by the courts.”The panel of judges described the NCAA’s rules as “more restrictive than necessary” in ensuring that college sports remain completely amateur, but agreed with the NCAA’s stance that student-athletes should not be paid on an annual basis.“The Rule of Reason requires that the NCAA permit its schools to provide up to the cost of attendance to their student-athletes,” the panel said. “It does not require more.” Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

Bernie was involved in the launch of The Clare People where she was responsible for business and industry news. Linkedin Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Print Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” TAGSAmbulancecrewfeaturedhospitallimerickpatientsshortagestrolley center_img Facebook by Bernie [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up SHORT STAFFING in Limerick’s ambulance service has left crew members spending their 12-hour shifts watching television while private ambulance operators are paid €400 to bring patients on a forty minute journey.One of the ambulance crew members told the Limerick Post that they have been short four crew members out of a small contingent of just 14 people for almost a year. They are now losing two more people who are being taken off the duty roster to train members of the service in other parts of the country.“We are supposed to have two crews at weekends and we often have just one. Every ambulance has to be crewed by two people but when there isn’t a second person, the first crew member can end up at base watching television for twelve hours. Watching television is not what we want to do. We want to do our job.“Meanwhile, the hospital is calling out private ambulances. If someone has private health insurance, that might cover the cost. Otherwise it’s coming out of the service budget and that’s money that could go a long way to paying for an extra nurse”.The source said that one patient who was transported from the University Hospital Limerick to Ennis Hospital by private ambulance got a bill through her insurance for €400.“And that’s for a thirty to forty minute trip”.Known as the intermediate ambulance service, the most common duties are transporting patients to and from hospitals to nursing homes or between hospitals in the MId West, which covers an area from Tipperary to the furthest reaches of county Clare.“What really slapped me in the face was when I walked into the emergency department in Limerick recently and there was an old woman on a trolley. If she hadn’t had a nappy on, then everything about her would have been exposed to the world. If we were properly staffed, we could have got her out of that situation but we’re not able to provide the service”.The source said that between May and October of last year, four people left to train in other areas or to move location. Two more people – one from the frontline paramedic service and one from the intermediate service – are also being taken out of the equation to train others, although each area already has dedicated training officers.“They’ve offered us overtime to fill the gaps in the roster but we’re being left in Limbo. Overtime money is all very well but you could be working four 12-hour shifts in a week. It’s hard to say no to a fifth but that’s not the answer”.Responding to the Limerick Post story, the National Ambulance (NAS) said in a statement: “The (NAS) are responsible for providing pre-hospital emergency care as well as providing transport services between acute hospitals and other medical care facilitates.“In order to reduce its reliance on the use of emergency ambulances in these instances, and to ensure emergency ambulances were available to respond to emergency situations when they arose, the NAS introduced an Intermediate Care transport Service (ICS).“This service is available to hospitals and is dependant on activity/resource levels.  The NAS currently has vacancies and have just completed a national and international recruitment campaign for qualified paramedics.“A number of ICS staff have availed of NAS’s training and upskilling programs which have impacted on roster coverage.  A recruitment and training campaign for ICV staff is expected to have additional staff operational by the end of March and thus fill ICS vacancies which have arisen.  Staff have been requested to cover the roster vacancies as an interim measure.  The NAS cannot comment on the use of private ambulances by hospitals.

Normally it’s farmers helping farmers but for the likes of Shannon to come in and offer this, it shows the goodwill of Shannon Airport towards the farming community.”Shannon Airport’s Director of Operations Niall Maloney said that having opened up the airfield to the local farming community during the fodder crisis of 2013, the airport regretted that farmers were faced with another challenge of this magnitude so soon. But, he stressed, they hadn’t to think twice about responding.“We were approached by the local farming community to say there is a crisis, which we’re all aware of, and could we help. There’s only one answer you can give and that is ‘absolutely yes.”Among the farmers who came to collect bales directly from the airport was Joe O’Connell from Parteen, Co. Clare and speaking from the airfield he said:  “This is important because there are people with a lot of damp land around us. It will just carry them over, until we get a fine week and it will ok again. My son is milking cows and I have sucklers.  We had to put in the cows by night since last September and they’ve been in since. We had a lot of extra fodder but, with the long winter, we’ve ran out now and it has cost us a lot of money with feed and meal.“I’ve been getting calls this morning about this and will be bringing this load back for my own and neighbours’ farms.  There’s great credit due to Shannon Airport and the IFA to put all this together to help out the local farmers.” Mr. O’ Connell concluded.More local news here.
