Christmas celebrations canceled in Peshawar after school attack

first_img Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Submit an Event Listing Rector Shreveport, LA [Anglican Communion News Service] The bishop of Peshawar has said that, following what he called “another unimaginable horror,” the Church of Pakistan has decided to cancel its Christmas celebrations.Peshawar Bishop Humphrey Peters spoke solemnly about the aftermath of the recent attack by the Taliban on a school that left 132 children and nine adults dead.“It is another unimaginable horror that has been unleashed upon this beautiful city,” he said. “The church has already taken the decision to cancel Christmas as a celebration. Instead we will be using the time to come alongside those in the wider community who are grieving and injured.“How can we celebrate and host parties when our city has been so devastated? We will still gather to worship but in a simple, stripped back and prayerful way.”The attack on the Army School in Peshawar, just a few blocks from St. John’s Anglican Cathedral, came just 15 months after twin suicide bombers from a group affiliated to the Taliban murdered more than 100 worshipers of All Saints Church in Peshawar.The bishop said that the church is looking to support communities in practical ways – visiting the injured in hospital, being with their families and supporting the bereaved – whichever faith group they belong to.He stressed that the church would continue to minister to those affected long after the world’s focus has moved elsewhere.“Many of those injured [in 2013] are still receiving treatment,” said Peters. “We need to insure that we stay with families for the long term.” He went on to emphasize that, while there was much anger and despair within the population of Peshawar, the church should remain true to its calling. “We must go on striving to be a source of comfort, of hope and reconciliation – that is the role of church – in good times and bad.”Insar Gohar, the Diocese of Peshawar’s youth coordinator who lost his mother and children in the 2013 bomb blast, said parents of those killed and injured in the recent attack are experiencing “terror and deep grief.”“This [event] reminds the Christians of Peshawar of the attack on All Saints’ Church,” he said. “They are crying with the parents of the children killed today.“Please pray for this situation, for the protection of our city and for peace in our region.”Peters concluded, “We know the pain the wider community is feeling, we share in their devastation and we will walk with them in their anguish.” Rector Belleville, IL In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 By Andy Bowerman, Anglican Alliance with additional reporting by ACNS staffPosted Dec 18, 2014 Rector Collierville, TN The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Associate Rector Columbus, GA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Albany, NY Asia Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Music Morristown, NJ Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Submit a Job Listing New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Christmas celebrations canceled in Peshawar after school attack Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Two new outbuildings create a gateway to the site, framing a pathway down the hill to an assembly of structures. To the left, a glass-roofed outhouse and cedar-slatted outdoor shower. Descending further, the cantilevered roof of the entrance porch nods to the restored log cabin within steps from the front door.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbyThese three entry elements were treated with equal importance. This in-turn created a unique built-time factor of old/new and the functional relationships of needed structures. Entering the cabin, the vestibule has a divided borrow light window into the main area. The main living space opens to a continuous lakeside deck and to ample windows looking back up the hill. A skylight provides a third-directional light source and crosses ventilation.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbySave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Paul CrosbyThe living space has a custom couch, dining set, and red stairway leading to and separating the upper and lower bedrooms. The lower has an attached sauna with access to the deck, and the upper to an elevated deck with an asymmetrical support structure. The interior walls and ceiling are all locally milled aspen while the heated floors are natural black slate.

Peter and Gail are semiretired physicians with a passion for land restoration, intense curiosity for design, and willing participants in the design process. They purchased the site which had been logged in previous decades with the intent of restoring it to the white pine forest native to the area. They have been restoring the site from invasive plant species by recording and aiding native plants to strengthen and flourish. When they hired us to help realize their vision, Peter had already restored an existing log sauna structure and converted it into a cabin.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbySave this picture!Elevations and SectionsSave this picture!© Paul CrosbyOur goal was to provide a light-filled retreat requiring minimal upkeep that fit into the existing configuration of structures, so as to allow them as much time as possible pursuing their passion. One particularly important contribution was the client’s suggestion of using timber retention boxes with gravel infill for terraced steps leading down the hill from the garage. The goal and end result of this project was to capture the vision of the client’s interest in design, their preservation of cultural connections, goals of a sustainable environment, and to create a place of light-filled comfort.Save this picture!© Paul CrosbyProject gallerySee allShow lessLos Angeles LGBT Center – Anita May Rosenstein Campus / Leong Leong + Killefer Flamm…Selected ProjectsFioca’s Cake Shop / Zemel+ARQUITETOS + Chalabi ArquitetosSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Rothe Amundson House / Salmela Architect David Salmela, FAIAlast_img read more

U.S. empire wages 30-year war against Iraq

first_imgFrom the perspective of the world’s youth, U.S. imperialism has been waging war on Iraq their entire lives. Iraqi children born the same year as the start of the Gulf War, who should be approaching their 31st birthdays, were killed by U.S.-imposed sanctions or bombs. This 30-year war shaped the political consciousness of an entire generation.U.S.-Iraqi relations since 1990 are not those of two neighboring states disputing a border. It is an ongoing atrocity an empire is committing against an oppressed nation. It’s Washington’s project to dominate West Asia.‘New World Order,’ same old colonialismAs the Soviet Union collapsed, so did the counterweight deterring imperialist encroachment against its neighbors. U.S. strategists seized on this opportunity to reconquer former imperialist colonies. Their primary goal in Iraq was to control oil resources and establish permanent bases, from which to launch military campaigns across the region.Washington first laid the groundwork by instigating chaos and weakening local sovereign powers. To prolong the bitter Iran-Iraq War from 1980 to 1988, which claimed over a million lives, the U.S. sent weapons and cash to both sides.Two years after that conflict ended in stalemate, the U.S. sent contradictory messages through its diplomats to Kuwait and Iraq, ratcheting up tensions while encouraging the Iraqi government to invade its neighbor to the south.As soon as Iraqi troops crossed the border, “the trap was sprung,” wrote military analyst Manilo Dinucci in Workers World on Jan. 21. “The United States — which had been preparing the war for some time, observing with military satellites the deployment of Iraqi forces and identifying the targets to be hit — formed an international coalition that sent a large army of 750,000 troops to the Gulf under the command of the U.S. General Norman Schwarzkopf.”This massive mobilization and devastating bombing campaign carved out a new foothold for the U.S., placing bases in Saudi Arabia, and, in the words of President George H.W. Bush, “the Gulf crisis will go down in history as the crucible of the new world order.”U.S. destroys Fallujah, Iraq, in 2004.For the next decade, U.S. sanctions and bombings killed 1.5 million Iraqis, including 500,000 children. When questioned about this genocidal policy, Secretary of State Madeline Albright said, “We think the price is worth it.”The George W. Bush administration concocted the pretext for the next phase of reconquest and launched a full-scale invasion. Washington falsely claimed Saddam Hussein had coordinated with the planners of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon and was additionally stockpiling chemical weapons — so-called weapons of mass destruction. Both claims were false.The U.S. began bombing Baghdad on March 19, 2003, targeting the area around the Presidential Palace. Over 200,000 U.S. and British soldiers swept through the country, seized the Palace, established a three-square-mile “Green Zone” in the capital and prepared for permanent occupation.The military occupation established a puppet regime that privatized the institutions of the Iraqi state, including health care and education. They disbanded the Iraqi Republican Guard. They eliminated the institutions that kept Iraqis employed during the twelve years of sanctions.Overnight, thousands of workers lost their only form of income. A policy known as “De-Ba’athification” imprisoned Ba’ath party members or purged them from the remaining state institutions — even those with nonpolitical jobs that required party membership, like teachers.Various resistance forces attempted to seize control of the country’s resources and hold onto some semblance of a sovereign state. U.S. occupation troops crushed them with brute force, imprisoned thousands of Iraqi workers and inflamed divisions among workers along ethnic and religious lines.U.S.-armed death squads roamed in areas that resisted the occupation. U.S. soldiers and mercenaries committed untold numbers of atrocities. Occupation forces used so much radioactive depleted-uranium ammunition, especially in the Basra area, that children are still being born with deadly birth defects to this day.Another million Iraqis died in the years after the 2003 invasion. Western capitalists controlled Iraq’s oil fields. Hundreds of thousands of foreign soldiers patrolled the new colony.The U.S. shifted colonial headquarters from the “Green Zone” to a newly constructed embassy complex, the largest in human history. The U.S. occupation had succeeded in erecting a massive military fortress bigger than the Vatican, right in the heart of West Asia. By 2009, 16,000 soldiers and diplomatic staff worked at the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad.Amid this chaos, the so-called Islamic State (I.S.) emerged. The administration of President Barack Obama used the I.S. as a pretext to resume regular air strikes, while tacitly directing I.S. fighters towards Syria in an attempt to exacerbate the civil war it had instigated there. But after years of bloodshed, a collaborative effort on the part of Iraqis, Iranians, Hezbollah and the Syrian Army finally beat the I.S.Although there are many fewer occupation troops than at the peak, the U.S. still has a force of about 2,500 active duty combat soldiers in Iraq and 4,000 staff at the U.S. embassy fortress. The Department of Defense employs over 6,000 “security contractors” in addition to the combat soldiers. These contractors are notorious for committing war crimes against the people of Iraq and as mercenaries are paid handsomely for it — as much as $22,500 a month.U.S. influence faces new challengesAt the height of its strength in the mid-20th century, the Iraqi Communist Party was the largest in the region. But despite being the longest continuously existing political party in the country, the party was severely repressed by the Saddam Hussein Ba’athist regime.In the aftermath of the 2003 U.S. occupation, the ICP drew significant criticism for participating in the U.S.-backed client regime. In recent years, there are signs of a new opposition as Iraqi communists have formed a coalition — with supporters of Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and the Youth Movement for Change Party, among others — which won more seats than any other grouping in the parliamentary elections of 2018.International Action Center published this book on the crime of the U.S. sanctions on Iraq.On Dec. 31, 2019, Iraqi protesters stormed the U.S. Embassy fortress in response to air strikes that destroyed weapons depots belonging to militia groups in Iraq. Protesters’ successful breach of the embassy was a tremendous show of coordination and popular force and was a symbolic victory demonstrating a new spirit of resistance against the occupation.Days later, the Trump gang ordered a drone attack, killing popular Iranian general Qassem Soleimani and an Iraqi militia leader on Iraqi soil. Soleimani was a decisive figure in the defeat of the I.S. Millions of Iraqis and Iranians marched in protest and took to the streets to commemorate Soleimani’s funeral.Javad Zarif, Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Islamic Republic of Iran, said in an interview (posted on Facebook) that the criminal assassination of such a respected figure marked a permanent turning point for the U.S. military presence there: “The United States has to wake up to the fact that the people of this region are enraged, that the people of this region want the United States out.”People’s China is another important ally of the Iraqi people through its Belt and Road Initiative. Since the COVID-19 pandemic, the price of oil crashed, and Iraq’s economy contracted by 12%. Iraq’s state oil company struck a $2 billion deal this month to supply the Chinese oil company ZenHua with crude petroleum for five years at a premium price and allows the Iraqi state to determine the logistics and timeline for the exchange.International solidarityOne day, the Iraqi people’s revolutionary struggle for national self-determination will drive every last occupying soldier out of Iraq. The U.S. working class has a role to play in this fight by waging our own revolutionary struggle to make it impossible for the capitalists to keep up this colonial project and to disarm the bourgeoisie and dismantle their war machine.Simply put, the U.S. working class and the Iraqi people have a common enemy in the U.S. imperialist regime. The same system whose police murder Black children in the streets of Philadelphia sent its troops to murder Iraqi children in Fallujah, Basra, Mosul and Baghdad.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Northern Indiana Dairy Farmers to Keep Indy 500 Tradition Alive Sunday

first_img Northern Indiana Dairy Farmers to Keep Indy 500 Tradition Alive Sunday Indy-milk-tradition-continues-for-103rdFor 64 consecutive years a bottle of milk has been handed to the winner of the Indianapolis 500, and Ft. Wayne, Indiana dairy farmer Andrew Kuehnert has the honor for the 103rd race Sunday afternoon. The avid race fan is thrilled to represent all dairy farmers in such a high-profile event.“It’s all about the dairy farmers and dairy farmer image, and it’s amazing that the iconic trophy at the end of the race is that bottle of milk. All dairy farmers everywhere should be proud to be dairy farmers, and I get to represent not only the 900 dairy farms across the state of Indiana, but also every dairy farm across the country. It’s a big responsibility and I want to be sure our voice is heard, so I am so proud to be able to represent all dairy farmers across the world.”Kuehnert is part of a 6-generation family dairy operation, and many of those family members are still involved.“I have the honor of being the milkman, but that wouldn’t be possible without my family,” he said. “I mean we work there together and a lot of times there is four generations working on the farm at a time.”NBC has the race television broadcast for the first time this year, and they recently spent time at the Kuehnert farm. Expect to see that trip featured on the pre-race coverage.Last year Andrew was the rookie milkman handing milk to the winning car owner and crew chief. That responsibility this year goes to dairy farmer Jill Houin of Plymouth Indiana.“I am super excited to represent the local dairy farmers in Indiana, the family farms that work so hard every day and have a tradition of working hard and caring about their animals,” she told HAT. “And then to carry that over into the tradition of the Indy 500 is such an opportunity.”She married into the 4th generation dairy farm family and is one of the 14 family members caring for the dairy cows and helping them produce wholesome milk. When she met her future husband Brian in college, she had no idea what she was getting into.“My husband was going to school for meteorology and Spanish and I went to school for teaching. And right before the wedding, his story is different, but right before the wedding he said he wanted to go back to the dairy farm. I was nervous and overwhelmed! However, it took me a little time and I got to see the passion he had and the hard work and the initiative that they have to keep those cows producing milk in the best way that they can, and then I just fell in love with it. So now I raise all of the calves, I give the tours, all of the social media, just to tell people how amazing dairy farmers are.”Houin says those farm tours are a great opportunity to see what happens on a farm. Take a tour if you have a chance.“The value of visiting a farm is giving you the opportunity to see what farmers do and if you don’t understand you ask questions,” she explained. “Farmers are passionate about what they do and they love to share their story, so let them have that opportunity and visit a farm. Whether it’s my farm or any other Indiana farm or around the world, if you have an opportunity to go to a farm, please visit because it’s amazing how hard family farms work every day.”And if you’re looking for a great way to watch or listen to the end of the Indy 500, head milkman Kuehnert has an idea.“I’d like to encourage everybody to drink milk. As the winning driving toasts victory and drinks that milk, go to your fridge. Get a glass of milk and toast in the festivities with the winning driver. Join in that fun!”American Dairy Association, Indiana awards the bottle of milk and a $10,000 cash prize to the Indy 500 winner and $5,000 to the fastest rookie in the field each year. This year the fastest rookie is Colton Herta who was honored along with all the rookies at a luncheon Tuesday at Indianapolis Motor Speedway.The milk tradition was launched in 1933 when the race’s first three-time winner Louis Meyer asked for a cold glass of buttermilk to quench his thirst in victory circle.

Emphasizing that there are innumerable people in the unorganized sector who are dependent on daily work to earn their living, it is submitted that the Government is responsible to ensure such people are provided with financial assistance during these unprecedented times. The petitioner, an IITian and MBA graduate from IIM who is a practicing advocate, has specified that his plea is regarding people in the informal sector who were either self-employed or quasi self-employed and have lost all means of income and are thus in need of assistance. The petitioner throws light on this category of people as follows- “These are not people who are homeless or in penury otherwise but are all people bravely leading lives by sheer dint of their own effort and earning a livelihood to support themselves and their families. Such people have not needed to depend on the freebies of the governments as they have proudly earned their incomes and met their needs therefrom. Many of them especially in urban areas may not even come within the ambit of the National Food Security Act. The lockdown has completely denied all income earning opportunity to such persons and left them totally income less.” The petition clarifies that while the government has made efforts to ensure salaries are paid during lockdown and has tried to provide support to farmers and other economically weak sections, such directives can only be implemented in the organized sector. Referring to the notification that salaries and wages must not be withheld due to absence during the lockdown, it is urged that the Government is also of the view that those who have been denied the Right to work during this time must not be forced to lose income as well. “The same can in no manner be enforced for people in the unorganised sector as many do not have concept of a owner/employer and in other cases even the so called employers of such persons, say a puncture shop owner is not in a much better position economically than his assistant whose wages he is supposed to ensure.” In this light, it is urged that the economic loss suffered by those who cannot afford it may be mitigated, at least partly, and the Centre and States be directed to formulate a scheme “to meet the minimum economic requirements of each such person which cannot be limited to supply of foodgrains.” However, it is agreed that States and Union Territories, who are the eventual agents responsible for delivering social welfare services, are also facing extreme financial strain. The petitioner further concedes that it is impractical to expect States to finance the reimbursement of the unorganized sector while they themselves have lost large amounts of revenue due to the cessation of economic activity post lockdown. Thus it is additionally prayed that the Centre, “as the ultimate sovereign”, be directed to compensate all States for all the loss of revenue incurred as well as to reimburse all COVID-19 related expenditures incurred by them. Given the financial burden being faced due to this unprecedented crises, the Top Court has also been requested to suspend the operation of the Fiscal Responsibility and Budget Management Act (FRBM) for the Financial Year 2020-21. Specifically alluding to Sections 4(2) and 4(3), the petitioner iterates that FRBM mandates the Centre not to be reckless or wasteful of its financial resources and places various restrictions on spending towards this end. “In simple terms FRBM restricts excess of spending by the Union over its expenditure. While proviso to Section 4(2) of FRBM allows exceptions in case of national calamity Section 4(3) limits the waiver in this regard also.” Though FRBM allows for very slight deviation from the fiscal deficit targets of the Government on exceptional grounds such as national security, act of war, national calamity and others, the petitioner contends that this is not a situation that can be placed on the same footing as those grounds. Thus, it is urged that, to enable the Central Government to carry out its duty and support States in supporting and empowering its people, FRBM must be suspended. “Lockdown of all business activity on such scale as presently is unprecedented and as such the constraints under Section 4(3) of FRBM have to be wholly suspended atleast for Fiscal year 2020-21 to enable the Union to do its duty to support the states with necessary funds and not be constrained by FRBM limits.”Click Here To Download Petition[Read Petition] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
