Tribunal Supremo de Carolina del Sur dictamina sobre caso de…

first_img Featured Jobs & Calls Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Rector Collierville, TN [Episcopal News Service] En un veredicto complejo emitido el 2 de agosto, el Tribunal Supremo de Carolina del Sur dijo que la mayoría, pero no todas, las congregaciones de la Diócesis Episcopal de Carolina del Sur cuyos líderes abandonaron la Iglesia Episcopal no podían continuar conservando la propiedad de la Iglesia.Los magistrados dijeron que 29 de las congregaciones convinieron específicamente a atenerse al [llamado] “Canon Dennis” (Canon 1.7.4), que  establece que una parroquia tiene su propiedad en fideicomiso a favor de la diócesis y de la Iglesia Episcopal. Ese acuerdo significa que [esas congregaciones] no pueden mantener la propiedad de la iglesia. Sin embargo, [los magistrados] dijeron que ocho congregaciones no habían convenido con el canon y en consecuencia podían conservar esas propiedades.El campamento y centro de conferencias diocesano de San Cristóbal [St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center] en la isla de Seabrook también debe ser devuelto a la Iglesia Episcopal.Los episcopales en Carolina del Sur han estado reorganizando su vida común desde fines de 2012 luego de que el entonces obispo Mark Lawrence y una mayoría de clérigos y de líderes laicos diera a conocer que la diócesis había abandonado la Iglesia Episcopal. Discrepaban con la denominación sobre temas de autoridad bíblica y teología, y fundamentalmente sobre la plena inclusión de personas LGBT en la vida de la Iglesia.“Agradecemos este veredicto y la ardua labor del tribunal para rendirlo. También damos gracias a Dios por la fidelidad, el apoyo y los sacrificios de incontables episcopales dentro de nuestra diócesis y a través de la Iglesia”, dijo el obispo provisional de Carolina del Sur Gladstone B. Adams III (“Skip” ) en una carta dirigida al clero y a los líderes  laicos luego de que se emitiera el dictamen.“Este es un veredicto largo y detallado, y nuestro equipo legal y nuestro liderazgo lo estudiarán minuciosamente en los próximos días. Es importante notar que el sistema legal permite períodos de revisión judicial y de posible apelación, de manera que pasará algún tiempo antes de que podamos decir con certeza cómo se presenta el camino a seguir”.El grupo liderado por Lawrence dijo después de que se conociera el dictamen que su consejo legal está “revisando el veredicto, sus implicaciones y deliberando acerca de la respuesta apropiada”.Las partes tienen 15 días para decidir si piden una segunda vista.El grupo disidente presentó una demanda contra la Iglesia Episcopal en enero de 2013. La diócesis entró en la demanda después. Luego de un proceso de tres semanas en julio de 2014, la juez  del tribunal de circuito Diane S. Goodstein falló en febrero de 2015 que el grupo disidente tenía el derecho de conservar el nombre diocesano y la propiedad, incluidos los edificios de iglesias individuales.El Tribunal Supremo del estado aceptó en abril de 2015 considerar el caso. Al tribunal le llevó más de dos años emitir su veredicto.Los episcopales que permanecieron [fieles a la Iglesia nacional] hicieron una oferta en junio de 2015 que 35 parroquias podían conservar sus propiedades, optaran o no por seguir siendo parte de la Iglesia Episcopal.A cambio, la propuesta exigía que el grupo disidente devolviera las propiedades y bienes diocesanos, así como la identidad de la “Diócesis Episcopal de Carolina del Sur” a la diócesis que sigue estando afiliada con la Iglesia Episcopal. El grupo disidente rechazó la idea el mismo día en que se hizo pública.El veredicto de 77 páginas del Tribunal Supremo del estado, que incluye las opiniones de cada uno de los magistrados, se encuentra aquí.Los dos grupos son partes también de un caso federal que se presentó por separado conforme a la Ley Lanham, alegando que Lawrence está incurriendo en publicidad engañosa por seguir presentándose como obispo de la diócesis. La Ley Lanham regula las marcas registradas, las marcas de servicio y la competencia desleal. El Tribunal Federal de Apelaciones del Cuarto Circuito devolvió el caso en febrero de 2017 al Tribunal Federal de Distrito en Charleston para una nueva vista.– La Rda.

Maggie’s Oxford / WilkinsonEyre

Wilkinson Eyre has completed the latest Maggie’s Centre at Churchill Hospital in Oxford. Inspired by the concept of a tree house, Maggie’s Oxford at the Patricia Thompson Building, floats amongst the trees in a small copse on the edge of the hospital grounds. Raised on piloti, it treads lightly on the landscape beneath while the twisting geometry of the architectural form creates internal spaces that are full of gentle movement and light. The design interacts with and embraces nature to provide comfort and reassurance for visitors in their time of need.Save this picture!Ground Floor PlanRecommended ProductsWindowsC.R. LaurenceCRL-U.S. Aluminum Unit-Glaze SystemWoodEGGERLaminatesWindowsFAKRORoof Windows – FPP-V preSelect MAXWoodAccoyaAccoya® Cladding, Siding & FacadesKey to the design concept was to create a building that felt warm and friendly. The Centre needed to be tranquil, slightly neutral and not in any way corporate or clinical. This was addressed by the angular geometry of the architectural form which has added movement and life to the spaces within.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wilkinson Eyre ArchitectsA series of three-dimensional planes fragment, fold and wrap into each other around a tripartite plan which allows the structure to fit among the existing trees – and visitors to escape visually into the landscape. External terraces and steps into the woodland allow visitors the opportunity to explore and immerse themselves further.Save this picture!DetailIn keeping with the woodland setting, the building has been constructed from timber all the way to the ground. To minimise disruption to the flora and fauna, prefabricated crossply laminated timber panels were erected on glulam timber columns fixed to concealed screw piles below the ground. Informal clusters of tilted columns support the structure and evoke a thicket of tree trunks in the woods. The surface materials are largely timber and glass which are friendly and familiar and while modern, they will weather naturally and sit comfortably within the landscape.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wilkinson Eyre ArchitectsThe internal plan is composed of three wings emanating from a central space which is a direct interpretation of the Maggie’s brief, allowing separate areas for information, emotional support and relaxation. All are linked to the central welcoming heart of the building which has a kitchen, dining table and stove.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wilkinson Eyre ArchitectsThe spaces are of a domestic scale, friendly and inviting but also offering quiet places to retreat and reflect. Clerestory glazing connects partition walls to the ceiling, giving the feeling of an oversailing roof and bringing light through the building. Slot openings in the roof allow shafts of sunlight into the spaces and openings in the floor provide views through to the landscape below. Together, these elements combine to create a strong relationship between the internal spaces and the natural surroundings, offering views and light from every aspect.Save this picture!DetailConsidered details have further enhanced the Centre’s interior spaces: the kitchen table (designed by Wilkinson Eyre) and the colourful rug in the relaxation area (designed by Diana Edmunds) are bespoke designs, while delicate surface lines etched into the timber walls gently reinforce the building’s geometry.Save this picture!Courtesy of Wilkinson Eyre ArchitectsProject gallerySee allShow lessFrank Gehry Claims Today’s Architecture is (Mostly) “Pure Shit”Architecture NewsSalle Polyvalente de Plumergat / Studio 02Selected Projects Share Area:  225 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Jacksons Building Contractors Houses Photographs:  Julian Abrams Landscape Architect: Design Team:Chris Wilkinson, Andrew WalshCity:OxfordCountry:United KingdomMore SpecsLess Specs United Kingdom “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/558757/maggie-s-oxford-wilkinson-eyre-architects Clipboard Turner & Townsend Architects: WilkinsonEyre Area Area of this architecture project ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/558757/maggie-s-oxford-wilkinson-eyre-architects Clipboard 2014 “COPY” Alan Baxter & Associates Maggie’s Oxford / WilkinsonEyre Photographs Structural Engineers: CopyAbout this officeWilkinsonEyreOfficeFollowProductsWoodGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodHousesOxfordUnited KingdomPublished on October 22, 2014Cite: “Maggie’s Oxford / WilkinsonEyre” 22 Oct 2014.

‘Battle of the Overpass’ – 80 year anniversary

first_imgMay 26 marked the 80th anniversary of a bloody example of capitalist violence against unions: the “Battle of the Overpass.” The world was exposed — and not for the first time — to the brutality of a U.S. fascist by the name of Henry Ford.From 1935 to 1937, organized labor was on the march. Hundreds of sit-down strikes had won union recognition in a range of industries. A 44-day occupation of General Motors plants in Flint, Mich., forced the world’s biggest corporation to recognize the United Auto Workers. A 31-day strike forced Chrysler to follow suit. The organizing of GM and Chrysler, along with smaller auto companies and parts suppliers, brought 400,000 members into the UAW.Ford, however, remained unorganized. Henry Ford believed “labor union organizations are the worst thing that ever struck the earth.” (Mary Heaton Vorse, “Labor’s New Millions”)Ford had introduced the moving assembly line in 1913. “Fordism” was synonymous with a ruthless production system that assigned every worker to a mindlessly simple task, such as attaching a specific part or installing one screw. Ford workers were fired for little infractions, such as sitting down or talking.Ford ran his dictatorship with his second-in-command, Harry Bennett — a prizefighter whom Ford recruited to run the “Service Department.” The department would routinely beat up union supporters inside the plants.Bennett’s goons were involved in the violent assault on the 1932 Ford Hunger March, which was called by the Unemployed Council and the Communist Party. Five workers were murdered and scores more were injured and arrested. The massacre took place outside the massive Ford Rouge complex, the heart of Ford’s operations in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn.Dearborn was a company town; the mayor was a cousin of Henry Ford. “Handbill distribution” was illegal without a special permit. Nevertheless, the UAW secured a permit to distribute leaflets on May 26, 1937. The headline on the flyer was “Unionism not Fordism.”The union’s Women’s Auxiliary planned to distribute on an overpass, crossing Miller Road, that workers used to enter the plant. The location was just a short distance from the site of the 1932 tragedy.An advance team of UAW officials and volunteer organizers arrived to greet the women. They were joined by news reporters and sympathetic clergy.As they climbed the stairs leading to the overpass they were immediately set upon by Ford’s Service Department. Local 174 President Walter Reuther was clubbed, kicked, dragged by his feet down two flights of iron stairs, and picked up and slammed to the pavement repeatedly. Bob Kanter and Tony Marinovich were thrown from the top of the overpass to the street 30 feet below; Marinovich suffered a brain injury. Richard Frankensteen was grabbed by the arms and legs and kicked in his privates. William Merriweather’s back was broken.While the beatings were in progress, the Auxiliary arrived by streetcar with armfuls of leaflets. Auxiliary Commander Catherine “Babe” Gelles attempted to pull three Service Department men off a union man. The heroic Gelles was also the founder and leader of Detroit’s Women’s Emergency Brigade. It was patterned after the militant Flint Brigade, which played a pivotal role in the GM sit-down.Gelles and the other women were beaten mercilessly and called sexist slurs. Altogether, 60 people were injured, some permanently. East Side Regional Director J.J. Kennedy later died of his wounds.Although the goons asserted that they were on private property, the overpass in fact belonged to the city of Dearborn. Thinking he could cover up his role, Henry Ford claimed that “loyal Ford employees” committed the violence.Photographers and reporters were beaten, their cameras and notebooks confiscated. However, one photographer managed to toss his camera into a waiting car, which sped away with the damning evidence. What became known as the “Battle of the Overpass” was front-page news the next day in Detroit. Ford stopped advertising in Time after the magazine made the battle a feature story.Leafleting continued even after the May 26 bloodbath. Despite the fascist-like atmosphere inside the plant, Ford workers continued to sign up to join the UAW.After a hard-fought, seven-day strike, in which African-American union and community leaders played a critical role, the UAW finally won recognition at Ford in 1941.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

US – #WeeklyAddress: April 9-15: Reporter punched in the face while covering a story

first_imgNews to go further Organisation Below are the most notable incidents regarding threats to press freedom in the US during the week of April 9-15: Receive email alerts News Help by sharing this information Reporter gets punched in face while covering a story ABC7 Eyewitness News reporter Tim Fleischer was punched in the face by a man identified as Efram Lacroix, in Queens, New York, on April 10. The attack occurred while Fleischer was interviewing a local outside of a press event for New York Mayor Bill de Blasio. The attacker was arrested a few blocks away from the location of the attack and charged with assault and harassment, though no motive for the attack has yet been established. Fleischer was taken to a nearby hospital and was treated for a minor injury. Last month, a similar incident occurred when reporter Bree Steffen and photographer Michael Dean Gold were harassed during a live segment in San Diego. Physical, verbal and online attacks and abuses against journalists in the US have increased under President Trump’s administration. According to the US Press Freedom Tracker, 39 were physically attacked in 2017. Potential FCC investigation into Sinclair’s controversial ads On April 12, twelve US senators asked the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to investigate Sinclair Broadcasting Group, one of the country’s largest broadcasting companies, for “deliberately distorting news.” Sinclair has been under severe criticism for its recent anti “fake news” campaign, thanks to a viral video on March 31 showing dozens of news anchors from company-owned local TV stations reciting an identical speech criticizing “biased” reporting in national media. The Senators, which included 11 Democrats and independent Bernie Sanders, also asked the FCC to halt its ongoing review of Sinclair’s merger with Tribune Media Company after the requested investigation. In May 2017, the broadcasting company introduced a plan to obtain Tribune’s 42 television stations in 33 markets, which would significantly increase Sinclair’s viewership. The senators even asked the FCC to consider revoking Sinclair’s license; however, that same day, the FCC announced that it would not pursue an investigation, citing the First Amendment. FCC Chairman Ajit Pai said, “I have repeatedly made clear that the FCC does not have the authority to revoke a license of a broadcast station based on the content of a particular newscast.” In October 2017, President Trump suggested via tweet that media licenses should be challenged if they report on “Fake News.” Trump tweets criticize New York Times coverage of Mueller investigation On April 11 and 12, President Donald Trump issued a series of tweets critical of The New York Times’ coverage of Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Trump attempted to discredit the news outlet and claimed the Times “wrote another phony story,” referring to an article that was published on April 9. He followed his tweet with another shortly afterward with his oft-used phrase “Fake News.” The following day Trump continued his rampage against The New York Times. He called the news outlet “a biased newspaper” because of its reporting on his relationship with special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential elections. The article Trump was referring to reported that he had attempted to fire Mueller in December 2017.The United States ranks 43rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index after falling 2 places in the last year.For the latest updates, follow RSF on twitter @RSF_en.

Lithostratigraphy of the Cretaceous strata of west James Ross Island, Antarctica

first_imgAs a result of recent field work, a new lithostratigraphic group is defined on the west coast of James Ross Island, Antarctica. Characterised by comparatively coarse-grained sediments, the Gustav Group is 2300 m thick and has an approximate age range of Barremian-Santonian. Four formations are recognised within the group (the Lagrelius Point, Kotick Point, Whisky Bay and Hidden Lake Formations), and of these, the Whisky Bay Formation is further subdivided into six local members. Type sections are erected for each of these stratigraphic units and representative lithologies and faunas described.last_img
