The Capitalist was surprised to receive a solid plastic invitation with a pair of metal scissors attached to it, bearing the Sky News logo. See what they’ve done there? Scissors… Cuts… You already got it? Oh. The day of programmes will “ask where the cuts are already biting and find out whether the public is yet engaged”.It will be presented by Dermot Murnaghan, which the blurb informs me is “the man who got on his bike to check out the economic cycle in 2009.” This time he will be presenting in locations from Scotland to the South West of England. Hopefully he won’t be forced to travel all that way on his bicycle or the economy won’t be the only thing in trouble.SADDLE-SORE BORISWhich brings us nicely to what is becoming our daily slot on Boris’ adventures on two wheels. Yesterday he took to the streets again, this time with transport secretary Philip Hammond. The two posed with new bikes before riding off into the sunset. With all this cycling it’s a wonder the mayor has a chance to get anything done. Hopefully, he’ll take some time out of the saddle to attend City A.M.’s inaugural awards ceremony, where he is nominated for Personality of the Year.

The first Lloyds chairman to have his portrait adorning the offices in Gresham Street is Timothy Kenrick, who chaired Lloyds from 1865 to 1868.The timing of the unveiling of the Blank portrait is noteworthy: for it is nearly two years to the day that Blank and chief executive Eric Daniels sealed the ill-fated merger with HBOS. Some shareholders are still trying to string Blank up for the deed, but there are others who think the merger may come good in the end.Blank’s portrait was painted by UK artist John Keane, whose portraits have included the late Northern Ireland Minister Mo Mowlam and Channel 4 presenter Jon Snow. Keane was also the official British artist during the Gulf War.STRICT DRESS CODEON the subject of unveilings, the venerable Terry Smith will cut the ribbon on an a long-awaited statue of WWII hero Sir Keith Park (see right).Smith, a face so recognisable in the City he is surely in line for a portrait of his own one day, has campaigned hard for the RAF commander. The unveiling of the memorial, in Waterloo Place, is very much a dressy affair. The Capitalist was slightly relieved to discover serving vice-air marshalls were not required to bring their swords. Full ceremonial dress, however, is mandatory. Even civilians are asked to wear a lounge suit, as a mark of respect.Park is credited as being the mastermind behind the defeat of the Luftwaffe. As part of the campaign a version of the statue has adorned the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square. BLANK GETS READY FOR TRIP BACK TO LLOYDS last_img read more

Welby says sexuality decisions can mean African Christians suffer

That cannot be (and should not be) taken back. Therefore, the massacre of Christians supported by the Episcopal Church is justified in perpetuity. That is, if I interpret the Most Rev. Welby’s rationale correctly.The massacre reported by Welby is a real tragedy but it is reported elsewhere that the perpetrators are causing starvation in South Sudan that will lead to the deaths of 100s of thousands.

Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET April 4, 2014 at 6:35 pm I too have been pondering the connection between practices in Western provinces of churches and their ramifications for those in the East and in Africa. Scapegoating and sensationalizing on the dangers of specific groups of people is a long-established method for shaky governments to gain power (witness the holocaust), and distract the population from internal problems, Clearly that is what is happening in places such as Nigeria and Uganda, as well as in the Middle East. The Western propensity for individualism is not found in those cultures, and their memory of the inflicting of Western values and practices can easily create suspicion that feeds into the needs of those governments to differentiate from “White” culture. So the caution that the AB notes is based on real cultural dynamics. Anglicans already tread a troubled path in those regions. The question is whether injustice toward those in our midst is justified by the almost certain ramifications against brothers and sisters in a remote land. April 4, 2014 at 4:33 pm I am disappointed in the Archbishop’s statement. 1) I would like to know the evidence for his assertion re the South Sudan. I do not deny that it may have happened, nor do I question that this is what he was told. But I would like to know if what he asserts is in fact the cause of the tragedy. I suspect there would be all sorts of dynamics across faith and culture that might more accurately be identified as the cause or causes. A place to start would be to know to what specific event, its location and date, among other things, he refers. 2) I am disturbed by the implication that an action a faith community in one part of the world takes, one that is applied to their own situation and one that they believe is in accord with a valid interpretation of Scripture and represents a faithful understanding of justice in our world, ought not be taken because someone somewhere else in the world may react irrationally and violently. While care needs to be taken, that proposition seems a curious application of ethical thought. I want to give this more thought, but on the surface at least it is disturbing. 3) I am dubious about some claims that actions taken by churches in the West re human sexuality are destructive of the ministry of churches elsewhere. One might also argue that the richness of the Christian religious experience and the diversity of belief is testimony to our oneness in Christ, and that might be proclaimed in healthy ways worldwide. New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Comments (10) Jerry P. Schaertel says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK April 8, 2014 at 1:16 pm While it is true that we are called to “share one another’s burdens,” which is an often forgotten truth, there can be no excuse for the not so subtle blame that the Archbishop puts on members of the GLBT community for the murder of others. Has he forgotten that members of our GLBT community are murdered and exposed to violence of every kind on a daily basis? It may be that as a very privileged member of the church establishment he has forgotten that many people suffer. I doubt that he has ever been afraid to simply exist. John Stefanyszyn says: Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Associate Rector Columbus, GA Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET [Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has said that Christians in parts of Africa face abuse, violence and even death because of decisions on sexual equality made by Anglican Churches in the West.Welby, the spiritual head of the Anglican Communion, made the comments in an hour-long phone-in program on LBC radio today.In particular he was was responding to a question from Kes, a Church of England priest who had called in to ask why English clergy were not allowed to decide for themselves whether to marry gay couples.“Why we can’t do it now is because the impact of that on Christians in countries far from here like South Sudan, like Pakistan, like Nigeria, would be absolutely catastrophic and we have to love them as much as the people who are here,” he said.“At the same time we have to listen incredibly carefully to the LGBT communities here and listen to what they’re saying and we have to look at the tradition of the Church, the teaching of the Church, and of Scripture which is definitive in the end, before we come to a conclusion [on the issue of same sex marriage].”When challenged by the LBC presenter James O’Brien about the Church of England’s decision not to perform same sex weddings, Archbishop Welby stressed that it had nothing to do with avoiding upset to African Anglicans. Rather it was about not putting them in danger.“It [the issue of same sex marriage] is something I wrestle with every day, and often in the middle of the night. I’m incredibly conscious of the position of gay people in this country, how badly they’ve been treated over the years, how badly the church has behaved. And, at the same time I’m incredibly conscious of what I saw in January in  South Sudan, in the DRC, and other places. You know, it’s not a simple issue,” he continued.“Personally…I look at the Scriptures, I look at the teachings of the Church, I listen to Christians around the world and I have real hesitations about [same sex marriage]. I’m incredibly uncomfortable saying that because I really don’t want to say no to people who love each other. But you have to have a sense of following what the teaching of the Church is. We can’t just make sudden changes.”One reason why not, explained the Archbishop, was because doing so could put Christians in danger elsewhere. He explained that he had seen first hand, at a mass grave in South Sudan, the lethal fallout from a decision on sexual equality taken by Christians in another country.He said he had been told that the excuse given for the murder of hundreds of South Sudanese Christians had been: “If we leave a Christian community in this area, we will all be made to become homosexual, and so we’re going to kill the Christians.”Welby concluded, “The mass grave had 369 bodies in it and I was standing with the relatives. That burns itself into your soul, as does the suffering of gay people in this country.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR April 4, 2014 at 4:19 pm The Church of England does not support gay marriage but it does support the freedom and right of the homosexual lifestyle.…but gay marriage is an expression of a homosexual’s freedom & way of life.The Church of England is contradicting itself…or perhaps not.…Within their “religious” belief they do not support gay marriage.…But within their way of life they do support the “right” to gay marriage .For they also live by the same belief, the belief in freedom of self rights….since they also turn to this belief for their freedom of religion…which dictates that it is RIGHT (a right) to be free to worship ANY god.It is clear what is the first love of the “Church of England” and its leaders.It is the belief in FREEDOM….this is the god of fortresses that man and the religious worship.…for man to know / establish / justify “good and evil” in his own eyes…for man to say what is right, for man to do his will…for man to serve and magnify oneself (XES)But the Lord Jesus Christ said to worship Only the One Creator God and Him Alone, His Will Alone to serve in obedience.…and Christ said to repent, to follow Him, to live by the Will of the One and Only God.Soon, the Lord Jesus Christ will return to rule the earth in power according to and in obedience to the Will of Jehowah Elohim and NOT according to man’s first love for “his freedom”.

How can they, with their “Kill the gays” bills, possibly be blamed for what we do or what the UK does? People inclined towards mass murder, regardless of the victims, cannot be pandered to in the vain hope they will change their minds. Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rosser Bobbitt says: Rector Washington, DC Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME April 5, 2014 at 7:50 pm Any connection between Anglican Church policies and murders in Africa is certainly unproven. But even if it were true, many more people across the world have died simply for being Christian than have been murdered in Africa. So if we follow the Archbishop’s logic perhaps we should just give up Christianity altogether! Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Hopkinsville, KY April 4, 2014 at 7:59 pm The Archbishop saying that he is concerned about the dangerous ramifications of same sex marriage to the Christians of Africa is using a pathetic excuse to justify his actions just as those who carried out the slaughter of Christians are using that excuse. Certain Muslim governments and Muslim radicals have been actively seeking to slaughter anybody that isn’t Muslim, be they Christian, Jewish, Animists or whatever. People who want to kill people, for whatever reason, will use any excuse they can to justify their actions to circumvent unwanted repercussions.

10 Most Popular Home Designs in 2017

first_img I am seeing more and more homes in the Orlando Sentinel, the designer magazines, on tv, and so many other publications that showcase homes that don’t have any drapes, curtains, shades, blinds, shutters, or anything to keep people from peeping in the windows. I don’t think that is cool at all. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Mama Mia Houzz, the online shopping and idea center website, has put together a list of the top home design ideas that you will see in 2017. Based off their data and insight from industry leaders, they came up with a list of 28 trends to look for in 2017. We’ve selected 10 but to see the entire list, visit the Houzz website. Satin Brass – Brass has been a hot item on the market for the last few seasons, but instead of the shiny version, Houzz predicts you will see the muted or satin brass in 2017.Voice Activated Assistants– Perhaps you received one of these for Christmas this year. Amazon’s Alexa and Google Home’s assistant are showing up in homes everywhere. Amazon has recently partnered with other vendors so that you can even use Alexa to request a ride through Uber or order a pizza from Domino’s.Green– It’s Pantone’s color of the year which is making a splash in home design. By adding this color to your home, you can create a zen-like atmosphere.Splurge on Laundry Room – It’s one of the most used rooms in a family house but often overlooked in the budget for remodel or a new build.  Now homeowners are looking to spend more money to increase storage and functionality of the space.Entryways- The first thing your guest see when they walk in your home is your entryway. Houzz states that homeowners are spending on average $2,500 to make over their entryway or mudroom that’s 150 square feet or more ($1,400 for a space that’s less than 150 square feet), according to the 2016 Houzz & Home Report.Black and Steel Doors– A new take on the glass door is the black and steel door.  Homeowners are also using this door for showers instead of a frameless glass door.  Graphic Tile in Kitchens – When wall space is not available for a backsplash, graphic tile on the floor is another option.White and Wood Kitchens– White kitchens are in high-demand but can often look sterile. By adding wood accents, you can break up the look of the all-white kitchen.Hexagon Backsplash– In kitchen designs, we’ve seen the subway tile as a trend for the last few years. Moving away from the straight tile, hexagon shape tiles are now a popular choice for a kitchen backsplash.Walls of tile in Bathrooms and Kitchens-In bathrooms, tile is not only on the floors but everywhere.  Many designers and homeowners find that it’s a minor splurge to buy enough tile to cover the walls of a relatively small or medium-sized bathroom or kitchen.All photos from houzz.com 1 COMMENT Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate TAGShouzz.com.

Did Gao Zhisheng die under torture in detention?

first_img News China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prison Follow the news on China News to go further April 27, 2021 Find out more RSF_en Reporters Without Borders calls on the Chinese authorities to produce evidence that detained human rights lawyer Gao Zhisheng, of whom there has been no news since 4 February 2009, is still alive.“We fear the worst,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The authorities must provide his relatives with proof that he is still alive. They must give the family details about his current place of detention and must allow his wife to have direct contact with him.”The press freedom organisation added: “If anything has happened to him while in detention, the authorities will be held responsible and those who had a direct hand in it must be identified and punished. The uncertainty about his fate has gone on long enough.”After being sentenced for the first time to three years in prison in 2006, he was released and then rearrested several times. He was arrested for the last time in his home in Shaanxi by Public Security Department officials on 4 February 2009. When later asked what had happened to him, the police said he “disappeared” in September 2009.As a defence attorney, Gao’s clients included Zheng Yichun, a journalist and former professor who was sentenced in 2005 to seven years in prison because of what he had written. Recognised by the justice ministry as “one of the country’s 10 best lawyers” in 2001, Gao also defended members of the Falun Gong spiritual movement and Cai Zhohua, a protestant pastor who was given a three-year sentence for printing and distributing bibles.He was one of a group of activists (including Hua Jia) who staged a rotating hunger strike for human rights in 2006. Participants in a total of 29 provinces and abroad took it in turns to fast for 24 hours. Several of them were arrested.In an open letter written in November 2007 and published in February 2009, he described one of the torture sessions he underwent as follows: “ ‘Gao Zhisheng! You mother****er! Your date with death is today! Brothers! Let’s show the bastard how brutal we can get. Kill the bastard.’ A leader of the group screamed. Then, four men with electric batons started to beat my head and body with ferocity. Nothing but the noise of the beating and my moaning could be heard in the room. I was beaten so severely that my whole body began shaking uncontrollably on the floor.” News February 5, 2010 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Did Gao Zhisheng die under torture in detention?

If the number of homeowners seeking forbearance rises to 10%, the monthly cost could jump to $4.2 billion. “The various forbearance programs being offered to borrowers via the recently passed CARES Act, as well as via individual agencies and mortgage servicers, are a key difference today,” Graboske said. Black Knight also found the purchase demand has been impacted by economic uncertainty and recent social distancing efforts.After home affordability improved to its strongest level in more than three years, recent jumps in 30-year rates falling below record lows in early March have “significantly shifted the affordability landscape.” Black Knight said the payment required to purchase the average-price homes has fluctuated by more than 13% over the past two weeks. The buying power for a prospective homebuyer who qualified for a $1,000-per month mortgage with a 20% down payment rose from $270,000 at the start of the year to $292,000 on March 2 when 30-year rates fell to 3.13%. However, when rates hit 4.15% two weeks later, the same borrower would have qualified for only a $258,000 home purchase—a $34,000 reduction in homebuying power.  The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days agolast_img read more
