Foto de ACNS.[Anglican Communion News Service] El equipo de trabajo que se creara después de la Reunión de los Primados en enero para “mantener el diálogo” se ha reunido por primera vez y [sus miembros] han afirmado su determinación de trabajar juntos, aunque reconocieron que el proceso tomaría tiempo y no podría apresurarse.Los primados le pidieron al arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby que nombrara al equipo para restaurar relaciones, reconstruir la confianza mutua, restañar las secuelas de heridas y explorar las profundas diferencias. Welby presentó el mandato del grupo ante la XVI reunión del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano en Lusaka en abril, donde fue aceptado y ratificado. Esta semana siete miembros del equipo se han reunido en la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana en Londres. Un octavo se les unió a través de una videoconferencia.“Lo que estamos tratando de hacer es reflejar lo que deseamos para toda la Comunión”, dijo la Rvdma. Linda Nicholls, obispa coadjutora de Huron en la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá. “Estamos intentando poner en práctica en nuestro compromiso aquí los unos con los otros lo que anhelamos para toda la Comunión”.El arzobispo Ian Ernest, de la Provincia del Océano Índico, dijo que los intercambios dentro del grupo han sido sinceros y abiertos.“Lo que ha resultado muy claro es el nivel de transparencia que tenemos en el grupo. Hemos sido capaces de ser receptivos y de hablar abiertamente de nuestras diferencias”, dijo. “También reconocemos la riqueza de la Comunión. Y todos amamos nuestra Comunión —eso es lo que nos mantiene unidos”.El obispo Paul Sarker, moderador de la iglesia de Bangladesh, se hizo eco del mismo tema. “Nuestras culturas y antecedentes son muy distintos, y expresamos nuestra espiritualidad de manera diferente, pero estamos avanzando juntos”, afirmó.Michael Curry, obispo primado de la Iglesia Episcopal, reconoció que encontrar soluciones llevaría tiempo.“Arreglos de emergencia no son soluciones a largo plazo”, dijo él. “Las soluciones a largo plazo exigen trabajo a largo plazo. Estamos hablando de relaciones. Uno no crea o renueva o restaura las relaciones de la noche a la mañana. De manera que nos vamos a tomar el tiempo que lleve —pero vamos a hacerlo.“Vengo a Londres esperando y deseando que encontremos medios de profundizar en nuestra relación con Jesucristo. Creo que cuanto más nos acerquemos a Dios en Cristo, tanto más cerca estaremos los unos de los otros”.En respuesta a la pregunta de si creía que había habido progreso, Curry dijo: “¡Bien, estamos aquí y estamos lográndolo!”.Él recordó un cántico espiritual de los esclavos en EE.UU. [que dice] “Seguiremos avanzando lentamente, como una oruga. La sabiduría [de este cántico] es que la oruga sigue avanzando, lenta pero constantemente. No esperen que las cosas ocurran de improviso… Estamos comprometidos con la Iglesia Anglicana. Creemos en la importancia de la Comunión por el bien del evangelio y del mundo”.Reflexionando sobre la diversidad, la canóniga Rosemary Mbogo, secretaria provincial de la Iglesia Anglicana de Kenia, dijo que no había ningún grupo dentro de la Comunión Anglicana cuyos puntos de vista no fueran a ser oídos.“Eso es realmente necesario si estamos hablando de recuperarse y de andar y de trabajar juntos en una Comunión unificada”, dijo ella. Añadiendo que se había sentido complacida por el progreso alcanzado. “Ha ido bien. Hemos cubierto muchísimo terreno en el entendimiento mutuo y de las personas que representamos. Estamos llegando a conocernos unos a otros por pasar tiempo juntos. Definitivamente, hay esperanzas —estoy convencida de eso”.Ernest se mostró de acuerdo: “Ha sobrepasado mis expectativas”, dijo.El obispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon, secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que le agradecía a los participantes los sacrificios que habían hecho para asistir a la reunión y encomió el progreso alcanzado en las conversaciones.“Estoy realmente alentado por la profundidad de la confianza que está empezando a verse y también por la esperanza que han expresado los participantes”.El equipo afirmó la importancia de la oración en la labor que realiza.“Estamos comprometidos a orar los unos por los otros”, dijo el arzobispo Philip Freier, de la Iglesia Anglicana de Australia. “Puede existir la idea de que esto es sólo un ‘festival de discursos’; pero esta [oración] es una acción profunda coherente con el tema”.Mbogo convino en que la oración era el fundamento de la labor del grupo y que era vital para su dirección conocer la voluntad de Dios.Curry añadió, “Nuestro tiempo aquí ha estado inmerso en la oración. Esa siempre va a ser una fórmula para un mejor resultado”.El arzobispo de Cantórbery le dio formalmente la bienvenida al equipo y oró por ellos antes de que comenzaran las conversaciones el martes. Él también asistió a la primera sesión, durante la cual insistió en que no había ninguna agenda predeterminada y que el equipo había de nombrar su propio presidente.Idowu-Fearon recibió al grupo y actúo como secretario. El equipo convino en que el puesto de presidente rotaría entre los miembros. El noveno miembro del grupo, el arzobispo Ng Moon Hing, de la Provincia de Asia Sudoriental, no pudo asistir. El moderador de la Iglesia del Sur de la India, el obispo Govada Dyvasirvadam, no tomará parte debido a las alegaciones a que se enfrenta en la India.Está previsto que el equipo se reúna anualmente con otros encuentros adicionales por vía electrónica. La fecha de la próxima reunión no se ha confirmado todavía.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

Ireland’s Damien Varley provides some airport entertainment

first_imgTuesday Sep 27, 2011 Ireland’s Damien Varley provides some airport entertainment Ireland’s replacement hooker Damien Varley put on an impromptu performance at Rotorua Airport yesterday. Brian O’Driscoll posted the video on twitter, and said the following. “We had a Maori lady play guitar and sing for us at Rotorua Airport as we boarded our flight to Dunedin. Damien Varley asked if she would lend him the guitar and immediately and impressively belted out a couple of Christy Moore numbers.He was immediately fined for upstaging the lady! Denis Leamy is very disgruntled about being usurped having been our go-to man in the past for singing.There’s only so many times you can listen to ‘Ride On’! Given Varley’s star turn, there is an undertaking to purchase a guitar with some of the fines’ money.”Thanks to irishrugby.ieADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error RWC Extra Related Articles 502 WEEKS AGO Alesana Tuilagi smashes a reporter 502 WEEKS AGO All Blacks victory parade in Auckland with… 502 WEEKS AGO IRB Awards 2011 Highlights From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Pasadena-Based Gunslinger Studios Gets $1.4 million in Funding for New Mobile Game

Its first game is called Exiles of Embermark, VentureBeat reports.The fantasy warrior-dueling title is reportedly a new kind of game that can be played quickly. A player equips his warrior and goes into a multiplayer duel with another human-controlled warrior. Each player takes a turn attacking or defending until only one warrior is left standing. Players can make all moves using one hand and can finish the game in a minute, VentureBeat says.Gunslinger spins out of Industrial Toys, headed by Halo co-creator Alex Seropian. All eight of Gunslinger’s employees came from Industrial Toys, says cofounder and CEO Tim Harris.“We got interest in the game, and we realized that we had something,” Harris tells GamesBeat. “We can give you the scratch of an itch of a grindy character, one minute at a time.”The company split itself in two to focus on the new kind of game. Industrial Toys will remain focused on hardcore shooters, while Gunslinger will make mid-core games – hardcore titles that can be played in very short sessions, Harris said.Investors include Chicago Ventures, Math Ventures, Listen Ventures, Third Wave Digital, and gaming industry angels that include Gregory Milken, Chris Williams, and Rob Goldberg.Harris said the company was able to raise money because it is building a platform for multiplayer games, e-sports, and live narratives that is directed by the actions of players. VentureBeat says investors include Chicago Ventures, Math Ventures, Listen Ventures, Third Wave Digital, and gaming industry angels that include Gregory Milken, Chris Williams, and Rob Goldberg.Gameplay on Exiles of Embermark is deceptively simple — anyone can pick the title up and play, but the combination of gear loadouts and moves creates a lot of depth and strategy. Fast-paced gameplay will hopefully lead to e-sports spectatorship where events like 64-team bracket tournaments can be completed in 15 minutes, VentureBeat says.Exiles of Embermark is approaching beta testing and should be available in the summer of 2017.For more information about Gunslinger and Exiles of Embermark, visit www.gunslingerstudios.com.

Derek Chauvin, ex-officer accused of pinning down George Floyd, due in court

first_imgHennepin County Jail By EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(MINNEAPOLIS) — Derek Chauvin, the former police officer accused in the death of George Floyd, is due in court on Monday. Floyd, a black man, died on Memorial Day after he was pinned down by Chauvin, a white Minneapolis police officer, who prosecutors say held his knee on Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes.Second-degree murder, third-degree murder and manslaughter charges have been filed against Chauvin. He has not yet entered a plea. The three other officers who were at the scene have been charged with aiding and abetting second-degree murder and aiding and abetting manslaughter. All four officers have been fired.As Floyd was pinned down, his pleas for help, telling the officer, “I can’t breathe,” was caught on cellphone video by a bystander. Floyd’s death has sparked outrage, protests and calls for police reform in Minneapolis, across the United States and around the world.Floyd’s brother, Terrence Floyd, last week urged protesters to avoid destroying their own cities. Floyd “would want us to seek justice” but to channel the anger “another way,” Terrence Floyd, told ABC News. “If his own family and blood are trying to deal with it and be positive about it, and go another route to seek justice, then why are you out here tearing up your community?” Terrence Floyd said. “Because when you’re finished and turn around and want to go buy something, you done tore it up. So now you messed up your own living arrangements. So just relax. Justice will be served.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

GM modifies car policy to exclude non-GM products

Previous Article Next Article If prime company parking spots seem elusive, then a Canadiancar-manufacturing plant in Ontario has just made them that much more precious. Starting this week, only workers who drive General Motors vehicles will beable to enter the principal car-park at the St Catharines plant run by – youguessed it – GM. The policy was actually union-initiated. “The rank and file broughtthis up for several years,” Doug Orr, a union representative toldPersonnel Today. But after several new executives began parking their Hondas and Toyotas inthe exclusive ‘salaried lot’, the union convinced management to adopt a policythey felt would better reflect the company’s pride in its products. Two weeks later, the union adopted the policy for its main workers’ lot.Now, any employee who drives a non-GM vehicle will have to walk a few morehundred feet to the plant, something Orr admits may be hard during a Canadianwinter.

Mad scramble at deadline to get aid to tenants

first_imgShare via Shortlink More than 400 state and local governments are scrambling to allocate funding from the federal CARES Act intended to provide at least $4.3 billion in rental assistance.The money could save some tenants from eviction and help landlords pay their mortgages.However, with just two weeks left to distribute it, jurisdictions have more than $300 million left, the New York Times reported.They blame bureaucratic hurdles, competing budget demands and a reluctance among landlords to take part.Read moreCuomo re-ups commercial eviction banForeclosure filings are way down.

Others are redirecting the funds to different purposes, lest the money will go unspent.Some have called on Congress to extend the Dec. 30 deadline, which would be followed immediately by the expiration of an eviction ban by the Centers for Disease Control.“The idea of reverting that money back to the Treasury just as the eviction moratoriums expire and renters are on the brink is absurd and cruel,” Diane Yentel, chief executive of the National Low Income Housing Coalition, told the Times.Various states also have eviction bans in place.

Rental deposit ‘top up’ launched as landlords struggle with five-week cap

first_imgHome » News » Rental deposit ‘top up’ launched as landlords struggle with five-week cap previous nextProducts & ServicesRental deposit ‘top up’ launched as landlords struggle with five-week capNew service from Flatfair is designed to help landlords cope with increased wear-and-tear, property damage and rent arrears during the pandemic.Nigel Lewis10th August 20200849 Views Landlords who rent their properties via letting agents can now access a rental deposit ‘top up’ product.Launched today by Flatfair, it is designed to help landlords who have realised – often expensively – that the recently-introduced five-week cap on deposits is not enough if a tenant significantly damages a property.Called Boost, it is only available via lettings agencies within the company’s partner network.As well as offering greater financial protection against property damage, Flatfair claims Boost offers faster dispute resolution than the government-approved deposit protection schemes.The new service costs 1.5% of the monthly rent plus VAT and offers landlords additional protection to a value of six weeks’ worth of rent.It is available on top of both a traditional rental deposit and Flatfair’s ‘no deposit’ service as well.“Our product launch is timely because I think a lot of landlords have had their fingers burned over the past six months and have realised that five week’s rent protection isn’t enough,” says Flatfair CEO Franz Doer (left).“The six weeks’ of rent protection that the landlord buys with Boost covers anything but rent arrears, so we believe this then frees up landlords to allocate the traditional cash deposit to cover any rent arrears that may have built up.”Doer says he is expecting to see rent arrears increasing as the economic problems caused by Covid are felt, and that approximately 5% of the tenants covered by its service are currently behind in their rent.He also says the pandemic is forcing tenants to spend longer in their properties – and that therefore wear and tear and damage are likely to increase too.Read more about the deposit protection ‘revolution’. rent deposit Boost Franz Doer Deposit Protection Scheme dispute resolution flatfair August 10, 2020Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
