He also expressed thanks for the pope’s support to Catholic representatives in WCC events, the Joint Working Group between the Roman Catholic Church and the WCC, the Faith and Order Commission, the Commission on World Mission and Evangelism, as well as in independent initiatives such as the Global Christian Forum.Remembering his meetings with Benedict XVI in Rome, 2010, and at the Day of Prayer for Peace in the World in Assisi, 2011, Tveit said, “Our conversations have left me with a conviction of the importance of strengthening already strong relations that enable Christians of many backgrounds to pray together, work together and rededicate ourselves to unity in faith.”Read WCC general secretary’s letter to Pope Benedict XVIMore information on cooperation between the WCC and the VaticanThe World Council of Churches promotes Christian unity in faith, witness and service for a just and peaceful world.

Press Release Service Noreen Lundeen says: Rector Albany, NY [Anglican Communion News Service] Members of the Church of England’s General Synod have concluded two days of informal talks on human sexuality. The private sessions, which followed the weekend’s formal meeting of the Synod in York, conclude a two-year programme of “shared conversations” throughout the Church of England.On Friday, the Church Commissioners for England confirmed that they have provided £300,000 GBP to fund the cost of the conversations; and that the remaining – undisclosed – cost will be funded by the dioceses.The Church of England said that the conversations were designed to allow people to “reflect together on scripture and a changing culture in relation to their understanding of human sexuality” and that no change in policy or doctrine would be forthcoming as part of the process.While the shared conversations took place, the Synod’s business committee declined to bring forward for debate two Private Members Motions on the issue. Those motions lapsed in July last year when the quinquennium came to an end.One, on the “public doctrine of Christian marriage” affirmed that “Christian marriage, between a man and a woman, as set out in the Book of Common Prayer” [was] the only basis for engagement with public policy on marriage and family life.” It had attracted 146 signatures.The other, on the “registration of civil partnerships” would give the required legal consent for any church or chapel to apply for approval as a place for registration of civil partnerships. That motion had attracted 139 signatures.In normal circumstances, motions are put forward for debate once they have attracted 100 signatures.“Throughout these conversations, deep convictions have been shared and profound differences better understood,” the Church of England said in a statement. “The shared conversations over the last two years now come to a conclusion with over 1,300 members of the church directly involved.“It is our hope that what has been learned through the relationships developed will inform the way the church conducts whatever further formal discussions may be necessary in the future. It is our prayer that the manner in which we express our different views and deep disagreements will bear witness to Jesus who calls us to love as he has loved us.”The shared conversations in the dioceses and at the General Synod were conducted under “St Michael’s House Protocols” – developed by Coventry Cathedral as part of its international reconciliation work. Synod members were asked not to tweet about the conversations and to respect the privacy of others who spoke.At the end of the talks, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby said to Synod members: “At the heart of it is to come back to the fact that together we seek to serve the God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead and in whom there is never despair, there is never defeat; there is always hope, there is always overcoming; there is always eventual triumph, holiness, goodness and grace.“That is for me what I always come back to when it all seems overwhelming. Thank you so much for your participation. Let us go in confidence. Confident in the God who raised Jesus Christ from the dead.” Rector Collierville, TN Anglican Communion, Human Sexuality, Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Submit a Press Release Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA July 14, 2016 at 7:56 pm Is it not a little late? You lost one of your really important priest, Tutu’s daughter. I never stop being amazed that the waste of time and money that churches spend when all they generallydo is to decided to meet again, or better yet “review” what they have no intension of changinganyway.

VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York July 20, 2016 at 6:26 pm Is it necessary for Charles Hawes to engage in sacrilege by judging the Arch Bishop of Canterbury about his beliefs regarding the Word of God. The Word of God about which you jest states that we should never judge another person. I think an apology to the ABC is in order. I would rather face God Almighty with the Beliefs he perceives the ABC to have than those C. Hawes implies about his own beliefs. I have not seen any additional books added to the Bible by Catholics or Protestants. Does C. Hawes understand that Anglicanism is build primarily on Scripture? Then reason and tradition. So, what would you expect the ABC to believe? I am delighted, if the ABC holds that tightly to Anglicanism. God forbid that he would do otherwise? I hope the ABC believed that God’s final Word is spoken in the history (life, death, and resurrection) of Jesus Christ, and the Bible is the only record we have of that history (unless you include the Dead Sea Scrolls). That statement is not an inerrancy argument.

On top of that you should ensure that your PCs are scanned for trojans, hidden ‘back door’ programmes that enable PCs to be remotely controlled without the user’s knowledge.

The new e-mail worm Mydoom.B which is currently causing problems is replicating itself by appearing to come largely from charity and university e-mail addresses.Mydoom.B, or Novarg, is currently accounting for around 30% of e-mail traffic, according to Finnish security experts F-Secure. Its rapid spread has been partly due to the virus writer’s tactic of getting virus-infected e-mails to appear to come from charity and educational e-mail addresses. This exploits recipients’ trust in such non-profit institutions. It is the first virus to adopt this approach that UK Fundraising has come across.There is not much you can do to stop your charity’s e-mail address being spoofed in this way. UK Fundraising has received several messages purporting to come from ourselves with virus infections, so we know our e-mail addresses have been spoofed. The virus writer has also used seemingly real names to add to domain names, such as [email protected], instead of the normal string of letters and numbers before the @ sign.

Al investigar este artículo, surgió una palabra que suena genial: “mezquindad”.Significa “dado a discutir por nimiedades”.La palabra fue utilizada en un artículo de Barton Gellman en la revista Atlantic de noviembre, “The Election That Could Break America”.Protesta en el Día del Trabajo por contratos justos, 7 de septiembre, Washington, DC.El punto de Gellman es que es una pérdida de tiempo discutir sobre si el presidente número 45 de los Estados Unidos dejará el cargo el día de la toma de posesión, el 20 de enero de 2021. Él presenta un caso excepcionalmente sólido de que, sin importar lo que suceda el día de las elecciones, 3 de noviembre de 2020: Donald Trump no cederá su puesto.Gellman escribe que “dos hombres podrían presentarse el día 20 para tomar juramento. Uno de ellos llegaría con todas las herramientas y el poder de la presidencia ya en la mano”.Nadie tiene una bola de cristal, pero seamos sinceros, probablemente Gellman tenga razón.La arrogancia de Donald Trump, así como su patología, no le permitirán irse fácilmente ni en silencio. Cada tweet, declaración, decreto, cada acción de Trump desde las elecciones de 2016, ha demostrado su feroz hambre por permanecer en el poder, en el centro de atención y cosechar la recompensa por él y su familia que viene con la presidencia.Según Gellman, Joe Biden y otros han “malinterpretado la naturaleza de la amenaza”. Dicen que si Trump se niega a abandonar la Oficina Oval, “las autoridades correspondientes lo escoltarán desde la Casa Blanca con gran rapidez”. Gellman sostiene que esta esperanza no es suficiente.El artículo de Gellman cubre todo tipo de artículos que se han escrito, estudios realizados e incluso conferencias celebradas entre académicos legales y sociales sobre las elecciones de 2020. Los académicos constitucionales han examinado especialmente múltiples escenarios que podrían desarrollarse entre el 3 de noviembre y el 20 de enero, un período que Gelman llama “el interregno”.Ese es el término para un período, especialmente entre reinados o regímenes sucesivos, cuando se suspende el gobierno normal.¿Un golpe policial?Gellman argumenta que incluso si aparentemente hay una votación aplastante en la noche de las elecciones, la tabulación de los votos por correo, etc., podría significar que el resultado final no está determinado por “días o semanas”.La transferencia de poder en enero no ha recibido tanta atención en generaciones. Incluso el ejército de Estados Unidos ha intervenido.El 25 de septiembre, en un artículo titulado “En el Pentágono, crecen los temores de que Trump lleve a los militares a los disturbios electorales”, informó el New York Times: “Los funcionarios del Departamento de Defensa dijeron que los principales generales podrían renunciar si el Sr. Trump da ordenes a las tropas para ir a las calles para sofocar las protestas”. En comentarios publicados el mes pasado, un general dijo: “Creo profundamente en el principio de un ejército estadounidense apolítico”.Sin embargo, es posible que Trump no tenga que preocuparse por el apoyo armado. Puede que no tenga lo suficiente para llevar a cabo un golpe militar, pero su relación con la policía de este país es sólida.Trump ha amenazado en más de una ocasión con movilizar a las “fuerzas del orden” para que vigilen las elecciones el día de las elecciones, una amenaza ominosa, especialmente para las personas de raza negra y morena. Imagínese la misma agencia que asesina a los negros con impunidad mirando por encima del hombro mientras votan en Georgia o en cualquier otro lugar.Además, los republicanos, según Gellman, están “reclutando 50.000 voluntarios en 15 estados en disputa para monitorear los lugares de votación”.Piense en eso. El Partido Republicano vigilando las encuestas. Este es el mismo partido que en 2009 produjo el Tea Party, el grupo de fanáticos ultraconservadores que eventualmente llegaron desde la periferia para convertirse en lo que el New York Times del 13 de agosto llamó una “fuerza perdurable” en el conservadurismo estadounidense.Este es el mismo partido, señaló el Times, que está decidido a consolidar y atender a una base “mayor, más blanca, más masculina, más rural, más conservadora”.Y para preocuparse más, el mismo Partido Republicano que reclutó a 50.000 “observadores electorales” también acaba de respaldar a tres candidatos en California que apoyan las teorías de conspiración de extrema derecha de QAnon. (Sacramento Bee, 28 de septiembre)El papel de los revolucionarios y socialistasEntonces, ¿qué hacen los revolucionarios y socialistas, aquellos que, como marxistas, entienden que ambos partidos representan a la clase capitalista, que las obscenas donaciones de PACS y los multimillonarios superan la influencia de los trabajadores o de cualquier grupo de interés de la clase trabajadora en una elección burguesa?Si los demócratas realmente estuvieran a favor de la clase trabajadora, revocarían la legislación antisindical. Apoyarían las campañas sindicales y el llamado a una huelga general contra el racismo, como ya lo han hecho algunos activistas laborales audaces.Moverían cielo y tierra para que las compañías petroleras pagaran por el cambio climático. Socializarían la asistencia sanitaria. Si Canadá puede hacerlo, ¿por qué no Estados Unidos?Podrían convocar una huelga en el Congreso y en las calles para exigir el alivio de COVID. Podrían exigir que la policía que mató a George Floyd, Breonna Taylor y tantas otras víctimas pague por sus crímenes.Si realmente representaban los intereses de la gente, los demócratas en el Congreso cerrarían Washington hasta que se castigara a la policía o se liberara el dinero de COVID.Pero ellos no. Y no lo harán.Si Wall Street controla las elecciones, el Congreso y la Casa Blanca, ¿qué pueden hacer los que viven en Martin Luther King Street, Cesar Chávez o Main Street para influir en las elecciones?Todo.“La transferencia de poder al pueblo”Pase lo que pase en noviembre, gane quien gane las elecciones, los trabajadores y la gente oprimida deben organizarse y defenderse. Si alguna vez hubo un momento para un movimiento de Asambleas de Trabajadores, este es.CNN y Fox News pueden tener todas las cámaras apuntadas a la Casa Blanca en noviembre, pero si las masas horquilladas están en las calles haciendo huelga por lo que necesitamos, todas esas cámaras se volverán hacia la gente.Para aquellos académicos preocupados por la defensa de la Constitución durante el Interregno, debemos preguntarnos dónde estaba la preocupación por la Constitución cuando George Floyd o Breonna Taylor yacían muertos.¿Qué pasa con los derechos constitucionales, humanos y civiles de las mujeres migrantes que han sido esterilizadas por la fuerza?¿Y qué pasa con todos los trabajadores esenciales que no pueden trabajar desde casa, los que se ven obligados a correr el riesgo de exponerse al COVID porque ni el sistema capitalista ni los dos partidos capitalistas los representan?Y todas las masas hambrientas, sin hogar, encarceladas, empobrecidas, ¿quién está luchando por sus derechos constitucionales?Claramente, solo la gente puede luchar por sí misma. Esa es la lección de noviembre.La única transferencia de poder que debe preocupar a las masas es la transferencia de poder al pueblo: la humanidad depende de ello.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Skillman said the continued downturn in the economy means that more and more Hoosiers are facing hunger, but that there is a system in place to get food to people who need it most, “During my first year in office, I convened the first statewide food bank called FIsH, Feeding Indiana’s Hungry. Thanks to these relationships, we now have a system to distribute this food to the people who really need it.” Donations were made by: Berne Hi-Way Hatchery, Creighton Brothers, Culver Duck, Farbest Foods, Maple Leaf Farms, Midwest Poultry Services, Perdue Foods, Miller Poultry, Rose Acre Farms, Tyson Foods, and Wabash Valley Produce. SHARE Indiana Poultry Industry Makes Record Food Donation [audio:https://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2012/11/poultry-donation.mp3|titles=Indiana Poultry Industry Makes Record Food Donation] Becky skillmanFor the 65th consecutive year, the state’s poultry industry has made a food donation to feed Indiana’s hungry. On Tuesday, members of the Indiana State Poultry Association presented Lt. Governor Becky Skillman with a Thanksgiving Day turkey. But outside the statehouse were semi trucks loaded with tons of food being donated to food banks around the state. Skillman said this year’s donation was especially meaningful, “We are always so grateful for the donation of the State Poultry Association, but considering 2012 was an especially difficult year because of the drought this gift of over 200,000 pounds of poultry is truly meaningful.” The donation took place during a ceremony at the Statehouse outside the Lt. Governor’s office. Some of the product donations will be distributed locally through the Shepherd Community Center, and the rest of the donations will be delivered directly to local communities. Poultry Association director Paul Brennan hold HAT that 2012 has not been a good year for poultry producers, but the state poultry industry ends the year in good shape, “The price of feed is up and is going to stay high until we get a new crop harvested and that is going to be a while, but overall the state industry is strong.” The association also continued the tradition of presenting the Lt. Governor with a custom-painted egg containing the Indiana State Seal. The Indiana State Poultry Association is a member organization that represents more than 95 percent of the poultry producers in the state of Indiana. The poultry industry in Indiana contributes a total of more than $2.4 billion dollars annually to Indiana’s economy. Indiana is the number one duck producing state, ranks 3rd in egg production, 6th in turkey production and raises millions of broiler chickens each year.

Advertisement NewsLocal NewsHardened shoplifters on Christmas spreeBy admin – December 10, 2009 685 WhatsApp Print Linkedin Facebook Twitter Colum Coomey reports on a growing trendRETAILERS and security guards in Limerick city centre believe that shoplifting is on the rise and that perpetrators have become braver and more blatant.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The manager of a high street fashion outlet said they have had become extremely vigilant: “We have had to put three security tags on all of our leathers because it was such a problem”.She added that people were robbing to order: “We have seen patterns of certain stock and specific sizes being taken in the same week.“It’s definitely on the rise in the last year and even within the last month, and it is just completely blatant”.The Limerick Post learned that some chain stores with a presence here did not have the necessity to employ security in their other branches.A person working in security for four years said: “I’ve been scratched, spat at and abused by people of all ages but you have to learn to ignore. Sometimes people will just roar abuse into the shop at me because I’m a security guard and on my days off, I’ll get abuse from those I have barred”.He is concerned at the recent rise in incidents. “This is the worst year we’ve had now for a long time and it seems to have started earlier than usual, towards the end of November when traditionally it would kick- off around the middle of December”.The protocol for most businesses is to avoid conflict but this can be difficult, as one store manager explained: “Last week, a member of staff spotted someone placing items in their bag and asked them to leave, but they reacted badly and started to roar abuse at the staff member and the Gardai had to be called”. Gardai are not always called: “We don’t want to call them four or five times a week… there’s nothing they can do unless we can contain the person in the store”.The manager of a knitwear shop explained what serial shoplifters are looking for: “Most we get are looking to get their hands on something they can sell off quickly”.Another manager wasn’t afraid to admit that the classic distraction method is still widely used: “Last week, a man dropped a set of wine glasses and when staff were cleaning up, he robbed some other items. He was later arrested in another shop”.A shoe shop assistant said: “We never really catch any one in the act but we often see stock missing”.On Cruises Street, security guards have radio contact between shops to tackle shoplifting, and some spoke of their experiences.One security guard on William Street, said that he has suffered racial abuse.Another admitted it can be difficult to stop professional shoplifters: “They know when I’ll be on lunch and a lot of the time the staff on the floor don’t recognise the people that have been barred, and then they will come in”.While on Cruises Street, the security guards were monitoring a known shoplifter as they travelled from shop to shop.One said he was frustrated by the repeat offenders: “They have become very brave, some will get three months after getting caught and they will be out in two days and back into the shop the next week thinking that you won’t recognise them”.In one shop the security guard explained that there were certain families that caused continual problems: “I won’t name them, but they come in groups and while you are dealing with a few of them at one side of the shop, the other will rob the other side”.He stated that the habit wasn’t limited to specific groups: “I’ve caught kids as young as eight and middle aged men and women. Last week, whatever way I looked, I caught a group of students who were putting stuff into their bags”.
