La Resolución B013 “reafirma la vocación de la Iglesia como agente de reconciliación y justicia restauradora” y reconoce que “una reconciliación significativa puede ayudar a engendrar una paz sostenible y duradera y que tal reconciliación debe incorporar tanto la acción política como los empeños de base promovidos a nivel local”.La Resolución C018 expresa solidaridad y apoyo a los cristianos en Israel y en los territorios ocupados por los israelíes; afirma la labor de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén en [el proceso de] reconciliación, educación y cuidado pastoral; y afirma la labor de los cristianos comprometidos en la creación de relaciones, en el diálogo interreligioso, en la capacitación en la no violencia y en la defensa de los derechos de los palestinos.La resolución insta también a los episcopales a demostrar su solidaridad haciendo peregrinaciones a Israel y a los territorios ocupados por los israelíes y a aprender de los hermanos cristianos de la región.Además de la política oficial de la Iglesia episcopal, varias diócesis y redes también han llevado a cabo asociaciones y [tareas de] promoción social en Tierra Santa, particularmente en apoyo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén y sus más de 30 instituciones de servicio social a través de Israel, Jordania, Líbano, Siria y los Territorios Palestinos. Estas instituciones incluyen escuelas, hospitales, clínicas y centros para personas con discapacidades.La diócesis y las instituciones cuentan también con el apoyo de los Amigos Americanos de la Diócesis Episcopal de Jerusalén, una organización apolítica sin fines de lucro establecida en 1985.La Red Palestina Israel, parte de la Fraternidad Episcopal de la Paz, ha promovido una política más vigorosa de parte de la Iglesia para ponerle fin a la ocupación, pero la Iglesia Episcopal no ha respaldado su llamado a boicots y desinversiones contra las compañías israelíes que sacan provecho de la ocupación. En lugar de eso, la Iglesia Episcopal apoya una política de inversión positiva.“Casi 50 años de ocupación han deteriorado y seguirán deteriorando el alma tanto del pueblo sujeto a ocupación como del ocupante”, dijeron los líderes cristianos en su carta de septiembre a los candidatos presidenciales. “Para aliviar tensiones, le instamos a apoyar los intercambios entre personas y el fin de las prácticas que, bajo la ocupación, han dado lugar a notorios abusos de los derechos humanos, tales como la demolición de viviendas, la sistemáticas expropiaciones de terrenos, las restricciones a viajar, el bloqueo de Gaza y la detención administrativa indefinida, incluida la detención de personas menores de dieciocho años.“Oramos que, al tiempo que usted aspira a la pesada carga del liderazgo, encuentre la sabiduría, la fuerza y la persistencia para buscar nuevas avenidas hacia una paz justa y duradera para israelíes y palestinos por igual”.Las Iglesias por la Paz en Oriente Medio alientan a todas las personas de fe a unirse a los líderes cristianos en su llamado a [cada uno de] los candidatos presidenciales de 2016 a comprometerse, de salir electo[a] a dar nuevos pasos urgentes y enérgicos para buscar soluciones políticas creativas que fomenten una paz justa y duradera en Israel y Palestina.Sigue aquí el texto completo de la carta y sus signatarios:Carta de líderes cristianos a los candidatos presidenciales (septiembre de 2016)Estimados secretaria Hillary Clinton, gobernador Gary Johnson, Dr. Jill Stein y Sr. Donald Trump:Como líderes de iglesias estadounidenses, le estamos escribiendo a usted y a otros candidatos a la presidencia de Estados Unidos en las elecciones del próximo noviembre para expresar nuestra profunda preocupación sobre el conflicto palestino-israelí y la ocupación militar israelí de Jerusalén Oriental, Cisjordania y Gaza que ya se encuentra en su quincuagésimo año. Le pedimos que durante la campaña política usted se comprometa, si resulta elegido[a], a dar pasos, urgentes y enérgicos para buscar soluciones políticas creativas que fomenten una paz justa y duradera y ayuden a que cada parte ejerza la autodeterminación con suficiente confianza tomando medidas para crear la seguridad mutua.Lamentamos la violencia perpetrada tanto por israelíes como por palestinos. Ambas partes han incurrido en provocaciones. Ambas partes viven en mutuo temor. La continua expansión de los asentamientos que ha llevado a 570.000 israelíes a vivir en Jerusalén Oriental y Cisjordania está socavando la viabilidad de la solución basada en dos estados. El bloqueo de Gaza ha dado lugar a un inmenso sufrimiento humano. Este status quo es claramente contrario a los intereses de la seguridad global, incluidos los de EE.UU., y causa de extremismo violento a través de toda la región. Además, las indignidades y tensiones que impone diariamente la ocupación fomentan el sufrimiento humano y han llevado a la emigración de la pequeña, pero vital, comunidad cristiana palestina.Sólo los israelíes y palestinos mismos pueden decidir respecto a los detalles de un acuerdo de paz justo y perdurable. Sin embargo, dado el desequilibrio de fuerzas y el historial de profunda desconfianza mutua, no habrá progreso hacia un acuerdo a menos que se tomen otras medidas. Debido a su poder e influencia, EE.UU. tiene una responsabilidad especial para el liderazgo, en cooperación con los europeos y los estados árabes interesados, de mover las dos partes hacia un acuerdo que elimine esta fuente de conflicto de una vez y por todas.Como un primer paso urgente, esperamos que usted, de resultar electo[a], se exprese con energía y aporte el liderazgo de su cargo para exigir sin ambages que se le ponga fin a la violencia y a la expansión de los asentamientos. Casi 50 años de ocupación han deteriorado y seguirán deteriorando el alma tanto del pueblo sujeto a ocupación como del ocupante. Para aliviar tensiones, le instamos a apoyar los intercambios entre personas y el fin de las prácticas que, bajo la ocupación, han dado lugar a notorios abusos de los derechos humanos, tales como la demolición de viviendas, la sistemáticas expropiaciones de terrenos, las restricciones a viajar, el bloqueo de Gaza y la detención administrativa indefinida, incluida la detención de personas menores de dieciocho años.Oramos que, al tiempo que usted aspira a la pesada carga del liderazgo, encuentre la sabiduría, la fuerza y la persistencia para buscar nuevas avenidas hacia una paz justa y duradera para israelíes y palestinos por igual.Muy respetuosamente,Arzobispo Vicken AykazianIglesia Ortodoxa Armenia de NorteaméricaObispo Oscar CantúPresidente del Comité de Justicia y Paz InternacionalesConferencia de Obispos Católicos de EE.UU.[Mons.] Paul S.

This project is by a long, open beach, on a desert dune rising in front of a wetland. It is a seasonal house to accommodate up to three couples and can be leased or bartered for the rest of the year. Its intermittent occupation and isolated location led us to think of it as a superposition of two models: the motel and the cabin. The motel suggests self-sufficient rooms served from the outside by second access, while the cabin presumes a centralized space that brings the community together. A set of 4 rooms come together in a shared central kitchen, forming a larger compact structure enclosed by mobile panels, which open different possibilities of use according to their position.Save this picture!© Tomás RodríguezSave this picture!PlanSave this picture!© Tomás RodríguezEach room consists of an interior space connected to an equivalent-sized courtyard, both covered by a common beamed ceiling, with two sides open to the outside and a wall separating them from the adjoining unit. These four structures are placed together in a perpendicular axis from one another, conforming to a cross plan over a squared base. The tip of this form, which faces the horizon, hosts a living room connected to a kitchen and dining room in one common area. The opposite end contains a guest room with views of the wetland. On either side, two units host equal master bedrooms-courtyard facing the peninsulas located at both ends of the beach.Save this picture!AxonometricThe construction is entirely conceived in pinewood with glued joints managed without metal pieces exposed to the sea oxide. The beamed ceiling is developed in four separate rectangular structures, settled over the walls and a perimeter porch avoiding diagonal main beams. The rotated disposition of these four structural units leaves a skylight above the central kitchen. By shifting the openings of the exterior structure by half a module from the axis of this skylight, a diagonal view is generated from the kitchen’s center, fostering the perception of the exterior as a moving panorama.Save this picture!© Tomás RodríguezSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Tomás RodríguezOutside these rows of pillars, 72 wooden doors enclose the house. When opened outward, each room courtyard is a private space connected to the outside by a row of portals framing the horizon. When closed, instead, they become an intimate space, protected from the wind and the views, but opened to its neighbors through a perimeter porch. Opening the views foster independence. Closing some doors can open common uses.

What is changing, clearly, is the ways in which people wish to give – and for a growing number this is by what we term ‘feel good giving’; smaller, more ad-hoc acts of doing good. One way charities might work with this preference is by harnessing small, digital payments.” 165 total views, 1 views today Advertisement Melanie May | 14 March 2017 | News Tagged with: Research / statistics
A Press Conference, in Stockholm, on Dawit Isaac On 22 March, the Swedish section of Reporters Without Borders arranged a news conference in Stockholm to publicize the legal measures it had taken in defence of the imprisoned journalist Dawit Isaac. «This is a turning point. Dawit Isaac’s case has reached a new level», said lawyer Percy Bratt. «The Government of Eritrea must now fulfill its words regarding imprisoned journalist Dawit Isaac and present him before a Court without delay», added Jesper Bengtsson, chairman of the Swedish section of Reporters Without Borders. A writ for Habeas Corpus was sent to the High Court in Asmara by Reporters Without Borders in July 2011 but yet another copy of the writ has now been handed over by the EU representation in Asmara. Both the EU Parliament and the Swedish Government support the action. It has now been confirmed that the writ, signed by jurists Mr. Jesús Alcalá, Ms. Prisca Orsonneau and Mr. Percy Bratt, has reached the Court.The fundamental idea behind the old legal practise of Habeas Corpus is that no one shall have the power to arbitrarily and quietly lock persons up without being controlled by a Court. The right to submit a writ for Habeas Corpus is granted in Eritrean law. That is stated in Articles 19 and 20 of the Eritrean Criminal Procedure Code and Article 179 of the Eritrean Civil Procedure Code. It is also granted by the African Commission on Human and People’s Rights. The Court will then decide whether there are any legal grounds to keep him imprisoned. According to the Eritrean Criminal Procedures Act a person cannot be held for more than 28 days. He must then either be prosecuted or released. Dawit Isaac has neither been prosecuted or sentenced since he was arrested 10 years ago.The action is supported by the editors of 21 newspapers in seven European countries: El País, Gazeta Wyborcza, Berliner Zeitung, Frankfurter Rundschau, Der Spiegel (Spiegelonline), Stuttgarter Zeitung, TAZ, Iltalehti, Helsingin Sanomat, Hufvudstadsbladet, Berlingske, BT, Ekstrabladet, Aftenposten, Dagbladet, Verdens Gang, Aftonbladet, Dagens Nyheter, Expressen, Göteborgs-Posten and Svenska Dagbladet.For questions please contact Björn Tunbäck, Reporters Without Borders – Sweden: +46 703 27 09 12 Reports to go further Organisation RSF urges Swedish judicial authorities to reverse Dawit Isaak decision News October 27, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information April 6, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Detained Eritrean journalist admitted to hospital in serious condition Prisoner of Conscience Since 2001 – Why has Sweden not managed to bring Dawit Isaak home? News January 13, 2021 Find out more EritreaAfrica RSF_en Receive email alerts EritreaAfrica Follow the news on Eritrea April 14, 2021 Find out more Reporters Without Borders has learned that the journalist Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu, in custody since her arrest in February 2009, was admitted to hospital in the Eritrean capital Asmara earlier this year. The organization is extremely worried about her state of health and concerned about the conditions under which she is being held.«While the eyes of the world are on the bloodshed in Syria and the crackdown on the monks in Tibet who protest in dramatic fashion by setting themselves on fire, the fate of Eritrea continues to be greeted with indifference», the press freedom organization said.«However, its citizens are ruled by a government every bit as cruel as those in Damascus or Beijing. At least 32 journalists are in prison without charge and without trial, some for more than 10 years.»«The government of President Issaias Afewerki has already permitted the death in detention of at least four journalists. It issues no information on several others and it is not known whether they are still alive. Today, it is the life of Yirgalem Fisseha Mebrahtu that it is playing with.»The organization deplored the apathy of the international community, which has accommodated itself to the tragedy in Eritrea since 2001. According to information reaching Reporters Without Borders, Mebrahtu is in serious condition in Asmara’s Halibet hospital. She has been admitted to the hospital twice, once last November and again in January this year. She is under permanent guard and is allowed no visitors. Her family and friends have not been told of the nature of her illness but her treatment requires the purchase of medication abroad. A journalist and poet, she is originally from the southern city of Adi Keyih and was arrested during a raid on Radio Bana on 22 February 2009, during which its entire staff was detained. She is supported by Reporters Without Borders and is sponsored by the organization’s Spanish section, as is her jailed fellow journalist Dawit Isaac. In a rare piece of good news, Reporters Without Borders has learned that the journalist Said Abdulhai, arrested in March 2010, was released several months ago. A veteran of the independence war against Ethiopia and a graduate of Libya’s University of Benghazi in the 1980s, he was one of the media department’s founders after independence. He has at various stages run the information ministry’s press department, the Eritrean news agency and the main pro-government newspaper, published in Tigrinya, English and Arabic. At the time of his arrest he was working for the foreign ministry and is now employed by the education ministry.Some of her colleagues are still leaving the country to escape the dictatorship and possible arrest. The journalist Senay Gebremedhin, who worked for the Amharic-language service of the state radio station Dimtsi Hafash and the state television station Eri-TV and was employed by the information ministry for 14 years, relocated to neighbouring Ethiopia in January. Another Eritrean journalist who wishes to remain anonymous for reasons of security and who fled at the same time as Gebremedhin, has contacted Reporters Without Borders to request assistance.For more information on EritreaSee also the French-language book «Les Erythréens» («The Eritreans») by writer and journalist Léonard Vincent published by the Paris-based publishing house Rivages.Also recommended are two radio programmes in French entitled «Rendez-vous avec X» broadcast by the French state broadcaster France Inter in March:- «L’Erythrée sous l’emprise du dictateur Issaias Afeworki» (1/2)- «L’Erythrée sous l’emprise du dictateur Issaias Afeworki» (2/2) Swedish prosecutors again refuse to investigate Dawit Isaak case News
Courtesy Jhoanna Buendia(NEW YORK) — Hospital workers across the globe who made an oath to save the lives of patients are finding themselves fighting for their own, with increasing numbers of doctors and nurses falling victim to the deadly COVID-19, commonly known as coronavirus.Jhoanna Buendia, an intensive-care unit nurse in England, said her aunt Araceli Buendia Ilagan, 63, had died of complications from the virus on Friday.Buendia Ilagan had been a nurse manager in the surgical ICU at Miami Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida for three decades, Buendia said.Miami Jackson Memorial hospital called Buendia Ilagan a “hero.”Buendia said that Buendia Ilagan had called her just a few days earlier to check on her and also mentor her on how to care for patients with COVID-19 in the U.K.“It’s very shocking … It’s very terrifying. It’s all mixed (emotions) … I just can’t find the right words to explain how I feel right now,” Buendia told ABC News on Monday.“She told me she’s doing fine … Never did I expect that that would happen to her,” said Buendia, who also said her aunt had doted on her because she never had children.Jhoanna Buendia told ABC News that she was afraid to return to work after her mentor/aunt died in Miami of COVID-19.“To be honest, I’m terrified for my life,” she said. “Especially (because of) what happened to my aunt. I mean, life is really unexpected. However, in my profession, we did a pledge that we have to stay strong, we have to take care of our patients no matter what and I’m sticking to that pledge … It’s our job.”Buendia said her aunt, the stalwart nurse, who never complained or showed frailty, had mentioned nothing about the illness or even that she had been feeling symptoms.Her niece said she was shocked with the devastating speed with which the virus killed. By the time she arrived at the hospital, Buendia said, her aunt Buendia Ilagan was so sick that she died as soon as she got to Jackson Memorial.“Her husband told us that he just saw her on the floor and she is not breathing properly anymore,” Buendia told ABC News on Monday. “He just rushed her to the hospital. And then everything came so fast … He’s so shocked … In her case, I’m very surprised because I didn’t know that she’s already feeling something.”Buendia told ABC News that although she was frightened to return to work, she would be returning Tuesday because her hospital was understaffed.Buendia did say she felt safe at her place of work because her hospital followed strict protection protocol and had adequate PPE, personal protective equipment.In New York, Dr. Russell Weg said that his 63-year-old father, gastroenterologist Dr. Arnold Weg, had likely contracted the virus, when a patient coughed on him. His father remains hospitalized.“This was about four weeks ago. A longtime patient of his called with a worsening chronic cough. This was when there were just about a few hundred cases in New York City … The patient called and as any doctor would, he had the patient come into the office … During the exam the patient coughed on my father to no fault of his own, and we feel pretty confident that that was his exposure … A few days later, about five days later, my father learned that the patient was admitted to the hospital. It was about a week after that exposure that my father started exhibiting signs of the coronavirus,” Dr. Russell Weg said.He said that his father developed a fever and leg cramps and that within a few days, he had to be rushed to the hospital and placed in the ICU.Dr. Russell Weg told ABC News that Dr. Arnold Weg, a grandfather of six as well as a marathon runner, was “truly in the fight for his life.”“It is not easy to step into that ring when you know that the outcome can be fatal,” Dr. Russell Weg said.He said that his father, who had treated tens of thousands of patients and also trained health care workers, had spent a career running to the hospital in the middle of the night for emergencies.“I know that my father, God willing he does get through this, he is going to jump back on the front lines and help as many patients as he can,” Dr. Russell Weg said.

Previous Article Next Article This month’s lettersBody back-up in trauma careDr Roman was right in his letter to highlight the need for programmes todeal with the immediate impact and aftermath of disasters and other traumaticincidents (OH, July). An important aspect of the Sainsbury’s programme which was extremelysuccessful following the Ladbroke Grove train crash was the support provided bythe occupational health nurses and counselling psychologists. Dr Roman comments on the importance of the level of training and experiencerequired to undertake psychological debriefing, assessments and traumacounselling. The problem faced by any organisation is the lack of any realcontrol of this area of expertise by the relevant professional bodies. Fortunately this issue is to be addressed by the British PsychologicalSociety who are about to set up a working party to develop a statement andguidelines on critical incident debriefing. The importance of the approach adopted by Sainsbury’s was that having undertakenthe educational presentation and group debriefing, those employees with highlevels of symptoms were continually monitored and provided with traumacounselling and occupational health support. Debriefing is only effective whenit is part of an overall organisational care programme where the organisationis committed to restoring employee wellbeing. The objective of the “Call to crisis” feature was to describe theframework of the Sainsbury’s trauma care programme. If any readers would like amore in-depth account of the psychological interventions this has beenpublished in Security Journal, “Supporting Distressed Employees: How toSurvive the Disaster”, Vol 13 (3) pp73-83. Noreen Tehrani, occupational, health and counselling psychologist Missed advice on cholesterolVicki Madden’s article “In Good Heart” (OH, May) seems to havemissed an important point. While her discussion of cholesterol levels is well informed, it overlooks acrucial change in thinking. With the exception of very high blood pressure, active intervention orreferral should be based on an assessment of coronary heart disease risk usingall relevant risk factors. The Joint British Recommendations (Joint BritishRecommendations on Prevention of Coronary Heart Disease in Clinical Practice.Heart 1998;80 (supplement): S1-S29) answer the uncertainty addressed in thisarticle. Screening using the same techniques as your local medical providers enhancesreferral confidence and reduces causes of friction. HeartXpress softwarecalculates coronary heart disease risk, applies current action thresholds,manages a risk factor reduction tutorial and archives the record for futureaudit. Winston Wannop, medical director, Healthcheck Express Any thoughts on screeningI have just finished my first year at Sheffield University studying for theBMedSci in specialist community nursing and healthcare practice and am doing adissertation for my second year. The hypothesis is “Can health screening be performed by a technician ordoes it have to be a nurse?”. My current thoughts are that a technician shoulddo the screening and the results be analysed by a nurse. Are any readerscurrently using a system similar to this?
