Rector Martinsville, VA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Collierville, TN Youth Minister Lorton, VA Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS [Episcopal Church House of Deputies] Like many Americans, I was horrified to watch white supremacist violence in Charlottesville spiral out of control this weekend. As an Episcopalian, I was particularly sickened to watch racists perpetrate violence and hatred in the name of Christianity.When confronted with the ugly underbelly of our history and tradition, it is tempting to say that racism is not Christian, and that what we saw in Charlottesville this weekend is no part of who we are or what we believe. But far too often throughout history, Christians have killed, maimed, and abused people in the name of our religion. What happened in Charlottesville was part of a Christian tradition that we would far rather forget.Even though we sometimes fall short, we Episcopalians strive to be Christians who follow Jesus’ command to love our neighbors as ourselves and who have promised to respect the dignity of every human being. And so, we bear a special responsibility to recognize and atone for the perversions of Christianity espoused by white racists and to work for a more just vision of the church and the world.Please pray for Heather Heyer, who was killed on Saturday in Charlottesville, for the state troopers who died when their helicopter crashed, and for their family and friends. And then act. Join a vigil in your community, oppose racism in your churches, schools, and workplaces, educate yourself about systemic racism and the ways in which it deforms our lives and country, and raise your children to build a more just and equal world.The Rev.

Fiji deliver possibly the biggest hit and best no look pass you’ll see all season

first_imgTuesday Mar 3, 2020 Fiji deliver possibly the biggest hit and best no look pass you’ll see all season The Los Angeles Sevens was a roaring success by all accounts, with the final being named as one of the greatest Sevens finals ever to be played, mainly due to an incredible comeback.ADVERTISEMENTWhile Fiji were edged by South Africa in extra time (see highlights below), they still managed to produce some thrilling rugby throughout the tournament, and indeed, in the first half of the final.Their tackling was always going to be something to watch, as can be seen here with this seismic hit from Aminiasi Tuimaba.Sevuloni Mocenacagi then produced one of the best no-look passes you’re likely to see.Even the Hoff was impressed.ADVERTISEMENTIn the Cup final, The Blitzboks staged an incredible comeback to beat Fiji, after overcoming a huge deficit in the first half.

NWS Summer Outlook Promising for Indiana Crops

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Andy Eubank – May 19, 2014 SHARE NWS Summer Outlook Promising for Indiana Crops Summer crop weatherDespite limited days in the field planting last week Hoosier farmers were able to get more corn and soybean fields planted in the new USDA-NASS crop progress report. So once all of the seed is in the ground, what kind of summer weather will farmers endure? The new National Weather Service forecast is out and it indicates the possibility of a pretty good growing season for the Midwest.USDA meteorologist Brad Rippey says, “We’re looking at a summer that may be a bit on the cool side for the Midwest but no strong signal for which way the precipitation patterns are going to go. If recent history has any bearing, if we can get some moisture into the Midwest and keep temperatures down, that certainly bodes well for Midwestern corn and soybeans.”He says part of the forecast is based on the development of an El Nino weather pattern but for the rest of the country the forecast is a little less optimistic.“We do expect heat in the west, across the southern tier of the country, and along the east coast,” he saidIn the areas there is also not a strong indicator yet about precipitation levels, but it could possibly be a bit dry along the western gulf coast.“There are some crops in that area including rice and cotton that might be a concern especially if irrigation supplies are limited.”Rippey says drought probably isn’t something Midwest and Indiana farmers will be faced with this year.“The way we’re heading here I think all the focus is on that roughly one-third of the country that is in drought, California to the southern Great Plains. Maybe we can chip away a little bit at the eastern edge of that drought, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas and so forth, but as you move to the west the summer is of course a dry season. With a Mediterranean climate there is very little moisture that falls say in California between May and September. So that drought is locked in and the whole drought picture this summer really will be focused on I think California and some of the neighboring states as we deal with water supply issues and of course an extended wildfire season.” Home Indiana Agriculture News NWS Summer Outlook Promising for Indiana Crops Previous articleRain and Cool Temperatures Try Producers PatienceNext articleHouse Moves Forward with Water Resources Reform Act Andy Eubank Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

Three years after the death of James Miller, British probe concludes he was murdered

first_img IsraelMiddle East – North Africa April 7, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Three years after the death of James Miller, British probe concludes he was murdered News News IsraelMiddle East – North Africa News RSF asks ICC prosecutor to say whether Israeli airstrikes on media in Gaza constitute war crimes News Help by sharing this information Israel now holding 13 Palestinian journalists RSF_en May 16, 2021 Find out morecenter_img to go further Receive email alerts Miller’s documentary “Death in Gaza”, garnered several prizes, including three Emmy Awards in the United States last September and one at the human rights film festival, One World 2005, in Prague in May 2005. Organisation May 28, 2021 Find out more WhatsApp blocks accounts of at least seven Gaza Strip journalists Follow the news on Israel “Now we are waiting for the Israeli authorities to accept their responsibility in the death of the British journalist and take sanctions against whoever was responsible,” said Reporters Without Borders. Reporters Without Borders said it was “satisfied” by the conclusions of the British investigation into the death of James Miller which concluded he was deliberately murdered by an Israeli soldier in the Gaza Strip three years ago on 2 May 2003.“Now we are waiting for the Israeli authorities to accept their responsibility in the death of the British journalist and take sanctions against whoever was responsible,” said the press freedom organisation.Miller, 34, father of two children, aged two and five months at the time, was shot dead while filming in the Rafah refugee camp for a HBO documentary on the impact of the conflict on Palestinian children and residents of the camp. His death came on the 16th and final day of filming.“Based on the evidence laid before us, we, the jury, unanimously agree that this was an unlawful shooting with the intention of killing James Miller,” the jury spokesman said at St Pancras Coroner’s Court in London on 6 April 2006. “Therefore we can come to no other conclusion than that Mr Miller was indeed murdered.” “It is a fact that from day one of this inquest the Israeli authorities have not been forthcoming in the investigation into the circumstances surrounding his death.” The British investigation found that a first shot was followed 12 to 13 seconds later by the one that killed film-maker James Miller, followed by several more aimed at the house from which the crew of journalists had come out, known as the “Journalists’ House”.Detective Inspector Robert Anderson, who headed the investigation, told the inquest, “Israel has been uncooperative with the Metropolitan Police in that they haven’t allowed us access to interview soldiers and witnesses.” In a statement on 6 April 2006, the Israeli embassy in Britain said it regretted James Miller’s death, but added that after a thorough investigation, “it was not possible to reach a reliable conclusion that could provide a basis for proceedings under criminal law.” Miller’s widow, Sophy, who gave evidence at the inquest, described it as a “huge relief” that the family had been vindicated in what they had believed for three years.Members of Miller’s TV crew said they were carrying a white flag and had identified themselves to the Israeli soldiers as British journalists. Miller was wearing a bullet-proof vest, bearing the letters TV so he could clearly be seen to be a journalist. An autopsy carried out in Israel in the presence of a British doctor established that he had been hit by a bullet from an M-16 assault rifle fired by one of the Israeli soldiers who was in front of him. However the Israeli army decided in March 2005, after an 18 months investigation, not to proceed against the lieutenant suspected of being responsible for his death, for lack of evidence. The lieutenant had been blamed, witnesses said, for “opening fire contrary to the rules of engagement”. However this charge was eventually dropped. The Israeli Defence Forces confined themselves to expressing their regrets, adding that James Miller had been taking a serious risk by working in this war zone. General Gai Tzur, head of the chief of staff for southern Israel, covering the Gaza Strip said that “shooting could be justified in such circumstances”. The British government and Miller’s family condemned this decision and launched an appeal. June 3, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

These companies use ethics as a means to further define their industry leadership and understand that creating an ethical culture and earning the World’s Most Ethical Companies recognition involves more than just an outward facing message or a handful of senior executives saying the right thing,” said Ethisphere’s Chief Executive Officer, Timothy Erblich. “Earning this recognition involves the collective action of a global workforce from the top down. We congratulate everyone at Parsons for this extraordinary achievement.”The World’s Most Ethical Company assessment is based upon the Ethisphere Institute’s Ethics Quotientâ„¢ framework. This framework has been developed over years of effort to provide a means to assess an organization’s performance in an objective, consistent, and standardized way. The information collected provides a comprehensive sampling of definitive criteria of core competencies, rather than all aspects of corporate governance, risk, sustainability, compliance, and ethics. The Ethics Quotient framework and methodology was determined, vetted, and refined by the expert advice and insights gleaned from Ethisphere’s network of thought leaders and from the World’s Most Ethical Company Methodology Advisory Panel.For more information about the methodology for the World’s Most Ethical Company ranking and to view the complete list of the 2015 World’s Most Ethical Companies, visit http://ethisphere.com.Parsons, celebrating 70 years of growth in the engineering, construction, technical, and professional services industries, is a leader in many diversified markets with a focus on defense/security, industrial, and infrastructure.
