The bishop in this role is a suffragan to the Presiding Bishop, who, as primate and chief pastor of The Episcopal Church, holds ultimate constitutional and canonical responsibility for chaplaincies in the military and key federal institutions.Currently a search committee is preparing the profile for the position. The election is slated for the House of Bishops meeting in Fall 2016 with the consecration currently scheduled for early 2017.The position of Bishop Suffragan for Armed Services and Federal Ministries, formally known in the Constitution of The Episcopal Church as the Bishop Suffragan for the Armed Forces, includes not only the pastoral care and oversight for armed forces chaplains, military personnel and families, but also oversight of federal hospitals, prisons, and correctional facilities, as well as the Eucharist communities related to military installations.Magness was elected by the House of Bishops as Bishop Suffragan on March 24, 2010.

Apopka Police Department provides medication collection

first_img UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 From APD NewsThis week the Apopka Police Department (APD) installed a medication collection box in the lobby of the police department – part of progressive efforts to combat the addictive and deadly impacts of opioids.The APD is joining more than 3,000 law enforcement agencies across the United States to tackle this growing drug epidemic, which reaches all segments, ages, and incomes in our communities.The collection box is a secure green container bolted into the police department lobby, 112 E. Sixth St. Expired or unneeded prescriptions may be placed in the box during business hours (Monday through Friday from 7:00 am – 6:00 pm). Anyone needing assistance will be aided by an Apopka officer or clerk. The collection box is a safe, simple, secure and environmentally friendly way to help law enforcement agencies and communities collect unwanted or expired household medication, including prescriptions, over-the-counter drugs, and unused pharmaceuticals. Unused medications should not be flushed down toilets or sinks; this practice can introduce drugs into our reclaimed water system and sometimes appear in potable underground water sources.Do not dispose of drugs in the garbage for curbside collection. That makes drugs available for theft and illegal use.Prescriptions (patches, ointments, pills, etc.) will be collected along with non-prescription medications, such as cold medicines, aspirins, and other over-the-counter medications.Hazardous materials, aerosols, needles, and other items are not able to be collected through the collection box. This drop-off program is part of an overall strategy by the APD to combat the opioid problem growing throughout Central Florida and national communities. “Prescription medication abuse is a rising problem in the community,” said Apopka Police Chief Michael McKinley,” we hope to provide a simple method to dispose of prescription narcotics and other medications so they don’t fall into the wrong hands and become abused.” Often teenagers and other family members take legitimate prescription medications from their relatives. Medications at home should be secured, and when no longer needed, they should be disposed of in a safe and secure manner. The installation of this secure collection box at the police department will provide members of the community the ability to remove the medications from their home and ensure they will be destroyed appropriately. In a separate effort, the APD is issuing Naloxone kits (more commonly known as Narcan) and training officers to help save lives from increasingly common opioid overdoses. Opioids often are prescription painkillers such as morphine, methadone, hydrocodone, and oxycodone. Heroin also is an illegal opioid. The majority of drug overdose deaths (more than six out of ten) involve an opioid. From 2012 to 2016, the Orange-Osceola Medical Examiner’s Office reported an increase from 98 to 189 opioid-related deaths. Since 1999, the number of overdose deaths across the country involving opioids (including prescription opioids and heroin) quadrupled. With the increase in prescription opioids and the law enforcement efforts making heroin more and more difficult to obtain, prescription abuse has become more prevalent over the last few years. Additionally, with synthetic narcotics becoming more powerful and available, (such as fentanyl), communities have seen an increase in abuse and overdoses. An estimated 91 Americans die every day from an opioid overdose.As a community-wide effort, Apopka can help to control the spread of opioids. For questions, contact the APD at 407-703-1771.

Two yellow cards equal red for winger as Scotland dominate Samoa

first_imgMonday Sep 30, 2019 Two yellow cards equal red for winger as Scotland dominate Samoa Scotland claimed an impressive 34-0 win over Samoa as they got their Pool A campaign back on track in Kobe. It came in part thanks to two penalty tries, that bizarrely went against the same player, as Ed Fidow was first yellow carded for coming in the side of a maul at the tryline, then later, his second yellow card was for a dangerous tackle that prevented a try.ADVERTISEMENTPool A is now a three-horse race between Ireland, Scotland and hosts Japan.

‘Escuchemos las voces indígenas’

first_imgEsta charla fue impartida por Mahtowin Munro en el 49º Día Nacional del Luto* el 22 de noviembre en Plymouth, Massachusetts.Buenas tardes y saludos a todas/os los que vinieron aquí con buen espíritu desde las Cuatro Direcciones. Estamos aquí en el frío y recordamos a todos nuestros adultos mayores que pasaron al mundo espiritual este año. Recordamos a nuestras/os hermanos, incluidos los valientes protectores contra el agua que están en prisión y no pueden estar aquí hoy con nosotras/os.Saludos a aquellas/os de ustedes que son Nipmuc, de Mashpee y Aquinnah y otras bandas de Wampanoag, Narragansett, Massachusett, Pequot y las demás naciones de la región inmediata, ya sean reconocidas federalmente o no, a quienes les robaron sus tierras por primera vez en los 1600s y se enfrentan a la posibilidad de que ahora se las roben nuevamente.Bienvenidas/os todos los pueblos indígenas que son de otras naciones de América, y de cualquier otro pueblo indígena de Australia, Nueva Zelanda y otras partes de la Tierra que puedan estar aquí hoy.Damos la bienvenida a las/os representantes de nuestras/os muchos aliados no nativos, incluidos aquellas/os que representan luchas como el Movimiento por las Vidas Negras, Gaza, Haití, Filipinas y Puerto Rico. Gracias por estar aquí con nosotras/os. Muchas comunidades están sufriendo tragedias en este momento.Recientemente, leí sobre una encuesta que muestra que dos tercios de las/os no nativos de este país no conocían personalmente a una persona indígena, y el 40 por ciento pensaba que estábamos extintas/os. Eso me hizo sentir como un unicornio. Pero todavía estamos aquí. No importa cuanto intenten borrarnos.Al reunirnos en noviembre de 2018, nosotras/os, como pueblos indígenas, enfrentamos ataques generalizados contra nuestros cuerpos, nuestras familias, nuestras tierras y nuestra soberanía. Cada una/o de nosotros tiene nuestro cuerpo individual, nuestro cuerpo familiar y nuestro cuerpo de nación tribal. No podemos separar a ninguno de éstos de la tierra, el agua, la vida vegetal y animal que nos rodea y que también forman parte de nuestros cuerpos. Estamos completamente interconectadas/os.¡Alto al robo de niñas/os indígenas!Algunas/os de quienes estamos aquí hoy venimos de familias de las que nos separaron para ponernos en escuelas residenciales indias, en hogares sustitutos o para ser adoptadas/os. Entendemos todos los días el dolor y las rupturas de por vida causados ​​por el robo de nuestras familias y, a menudo, resultando en ser abusadas/os. Incluso si no pasamos por esto nosotras/os mismos, podemos tener miembros de la familia que fueron robados de sus comunidades. Algunas/os de nosotros pasamos por esto en nuestras familias por varias generaciones. Continuamos experimentando un trauma intergeneracional dentro de nuestras familias y comunidades tribales debido a lo sucedido.Lo planteo porque en octubre, un tribunal federal de Texas declaró inconstitucional la Ley de Bienestar de los Niños Indios, [ICWA por siglas en inglés]. La ICWA se aprobó en 1978 para impedir que las/os niños indígenas en EUA crecieran con familias no nativas, sin su cultura y conexiones tribales. Antes de que se aprobara esa ley, alrededor de un tercio de las/os niños indígenas eran removidos ​​de sus familias y adoptados por familias blancas.Pero ahora hay muchas fuerzas, que van desde agencias de colocación de adopción con fines de lucro a fundamentalistas religiosos y grupos de deliberación de derecha, como el Instituto Goldwater, que quieren regresar a esos tiempos destructivos. Los pueblos indígenas y otras personas que trabajan con nuestras/os niños y familias están luchando para enfrentar este golpe legal contra todas nuestras naciones.Además, miles de nuestras/os niños son sacados de sus hogares y puestos en hogares de guarda, a veces denominados “nuevas escuelas residenciales”, porque muchas/os niños se están separando innecesariamente de sus familias. En EUA y Canadá, las/os niños indígenas tienen tasas desproporcionadamente altas de colocación en hogares de guarda. Industrias enteras han crecido alrededor de los servicios de adopción y cuidados de crianza. Se está haciendo dinero de las vidas destrozadas de nuestras/os hijos.Cuando los medios de comunicación dicen que la separación de familias por parte de la Inmigración y Control de Aduanas (ICE) es un fenómeno nuevo, tenemos claro que esto no es algo que acaba de comenzar con Trump u Obama. Ha estado sucediendo durante siglos a las familias negras e indígenas. ¿No es así?Hay 573 naciones tribales reconocidas por el gobierno federal en los EUA, con muchas más tribus reconocidas por el estado. Digo naciones porque somos miembros de naciones distintas, muchas de las cuales tienen un estatus de tratado de nación a nación con EUA o Canadá.También hay millones de indígenas aquí de Canadá, México, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras y muchos otros países. ¡Las fronteras entre todos estos países no son nuestras fronteras! Muchas/os de los refugiados cuyos hijos están siendo robados por ICE ahora son familias mayas. En general, el pueblo indígena aquí está horrorizado al ver a niñas/os robados en jaulas y llevados a centros de detención, porque sentimos profundamente el dolor y el temor de que nos roben a nuestras/os hijos.Cuando muchas/os de nosotros miramos a las/os niños refugiados robados y sus familias que están huyendo de sus países destruidos por las políticas de los EUA, también lamentamos su sufrimiento mientras intentan sobrevivir y mantener a sus familias unidas. Hoy estoy aquí para exigir a estos colonos que se sientan en el gobierno de EUA que le otorguen el asilo a estas/os refugiados. ¡Debemos exigir el fin del robo de todos nuestras/os niños!Los ataques no son solo contra nuestras/os hijos. Las mujeres indígenas han estado bajo ataque desde 1492. Eso nunca ha terminado. En los tiempos modernos, se estima que desde 1960 hasta la década de 1980, entre el 25 y el 60 por ciento de las mujeres nativas americanas en los EUA, se esterilizaron sin su consentimiento informado. Esto sucedió en Canadá, Perú y otros países, también.Menciono esto hoy porque todavía está sucediendo en Canadá. Las mujeres indígenas están siendo obligadas a ser esterilizadas en Saskatchewan y otras provincias. Están surgiendo historias sobre madres indígenas que son presionadas mientras están en el parto para que les aten las trompas, o que no se les permita ver a sus bebés recién nacidos hasta que acepten ser esterilizadas. Una enorme franja de generaciones futuras de nuestra gente nunca ha nacido como resultado de políticas públicas anti-indígenas.“¡No más hermanas robadas!”Les pedimos a las personas que usen algo rojo hoy para decir: “¡No más hermanas robadas!” Para honrar a las Mujeres, Niñas y Dos Espíritus Indígenas Desaparecidas y Asesinadas (MMIWG2S).Una de las muchas razones por las que las naciones indígenas de todo el mundo están luchando contra los gasoductos, el fracking y la minería es que se han establecido campamentos de hombres para los trabajadores. Los hombres tienen grandes sumas de dinero y muchas drogas, como metanfetamina y heroína, para atraer a las mujeres indígenas, que a menudo terminan siendo adictas y traficadas. Algunas de estas hermanas desaparecen; algunas son asesinadas.Los campamentos para hombres son uno de los muchos factores que llevan a MMIWG2S, que se considera un problema canadiense, pero también es un gran problema en EUA, México y otros países. Esto también ocurre en las ciudades, no solo en las zonas rurales.El asesinato es la tercera causa de muerte de mujeres indígenas en EUA. En Canadá, varios miles de mujeres indígenas se consideran desaparecidas o asesinadas. En ciudades como Winnipeg, Manitoba, jóvenes indígenas – muchos de ellos en hogares sustitutos – mujeres y dos espíritus desaparecen todo el tiempo. En las ciudades fronterizas con México, las mujeres desaparecen todo el tiempo.Uno de los problemas al hablar de MMIWG2S es que las mujeres indígenas a menudo no están contabilizadas, por lo que los números que tenemos son muy incompletos. Recientemente, a través de las solicitudes bajo la Ley de Libertad de Información, el Urban Indian Health Institute identificó 506 mujeres indígenas urbanas asesinadas o desaparecidas en 71 ciudades de los EUA de las cuales habían solicitado datos.Pero eso es un recuento sustancial. Algunas ciudades, como Santa Fe, N.M., ni siquiera identifican a las personas indígenas por separado en sus estadísticas, a pesar de que hay una gran población indígena en esa área. En varias ciudades y estados, las autoridades no intentan hacer un seguimiento de los pueblos indígenas y lo que nos sucede. No aparecemos en muchos tipos de estadísticas gubernamentales, ya sea aquí en Massachusetts o a nivel nacional. Este recuento es parte de nuestra supresión. Las familias indígenas que informan sobre sus familiares desaparecidos a menudo se encuentran con la reticencia de las autoridades a investigar o presentar informes. A las familias se les dice cosas como: “Ah, ella va a aparecer. Probablemente se está emborrachando en alguna parte”.La mayoría de los hombres que agreden y asesinan a mujeres indígenas en los EUA y Canadá son hombres blancos. A menudo no son procesados, incluso cuando son detenidos. O son absueltos por jurados totalmente blancos o se les da una palmadita en la muñeca.Además, los pueblos indígenas continúan experimentando tasas desproporcionadamente altas de violencia policial y encarcelamiento. Personas indígenas sin techo son atacadas y asesinadas por pura diversión en lugares como Albuquerque, N.M.La devaluación de las vidas y los cuerpos de personas indígenas, y la violencia contra las mujeres indígenas, en particular, están profundamente entrelazadas con el desprecio que los colonos y sus sistemas tienen por la tierra. No respetan nuestra soberanía como naciones indígenas, y no respetan la soberanía de nuestros cuerpos.Pueblos indígenas luchan por defender sus tierras.Los pueblos indígenas siempre están en la primera línea de defensa del medio ambiente porque los gobiernos estatales y federales otorgan permisos y dan carta blanca a las corporaciones que quieren emprender acciones destructivas y extractivas en o cerca de nuestras tierras. En todo el continente americano, los oleo y gasoductos, el fracking y la minería se están llevando a cabo en tierras indígenas sin nuestro consentimiento.Desde Chile hasta Nueva Escocia y desde Labrador hasta la Columbia Británica, las/os protectores de agua indígenas y las/os protectores de tierra están intentando detener estos proyectos. Muchas/os de ustedes aquí conocen las dificultades en Standing Rock para detener el Oleoducto Dakota. Pero ha habido más luchas de primera línea, en gran parte lideradas por pueblos indígenas, contra el oleoducto Keystone XL, el oleoducto de Bayou Bridge, Kinder Morgan en la Columbia Británica, el Telescopio TMT en Hawai y otros más. La resistencia ha continuado con los esfuerzos para detener el desarrollo de áreas sagradas, como Bears Ears y Grand Staircase Escalante en Utah y el área sagrada Apache Oak Flat en Arizona.Nos sentimos honradas/os de tener un orador que ha viajado hasta aquí desde Labrador en Canadá, donde los inuit han estado tratando de detener el proyecto de mega represa de Muskrat Falls. En el área de Yucatán en México, los mayas están protestando por el proyecto del Tren Maya al que no han dado su consentimiento.Una forma de detener estos proyectos ha sido comenzar campañas contra los bancos e inversionistas que financian a las corporaciones detrás de estos proyectos destructivos. Ha crecido un movimiento para lograr que las ciudades, universidades y fondos de pensiones se desprendan de compañías destructivas, como Energy Transfer Partners.La gente habla sobre el cambio climático, pero a menudo se siente impotente ante la inacción y negación del gobierno. Estar juntas/os en eventos como el Día Nacional del Luto es un ensayo general para salvar la Tierra. La Tierra no se salvará con todos estos esquemas que escuchamos, como los créditos de carbono y poner un escudo sobre la Tierra para bloquear el sol. Se producirán cambios reales cuando las/os no nativos escuchen las voces indígenas.Hoy, afirmamos nuestro derecho a cuidarnos unas/os a otras/os y descolonizar nuestras mentes, nuestras historias, nuestros lenguajes y nuestros sistemas. Hacemos valer nuestro derecho a defender nuestras vidas y nuestras familias, y las de nuestros familiares que han sido cruzados por la frontera. Debemos defender el derecho a nuestras tierras desde Mashpee hasta el territorio Mapuche en Chile.[Nota de traducción: El pueblo indígena no celebra el “Día de acción de gracias”, sino que se reúnen para conmemorar el Día del Luto.]FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

(Photo by Cristian ArguetaSoto.)Chancellor Victor Boschini announced Friday in a campus-wide email that the purpose of these changes is to help keep the TCU community healthy by reducing non-essential travel over breaks and minimize time on campus during cold and flu season.To achieve the compressed schedule and adhere to accreditation guidelines, the university will forgo Labor Day and fall break. Also, two days of lectures, held either on Saturdays or online, will be added.Though classes will be held the same weekdays and times as originally scheduled, there may be some modifications to the course schedule so classrooms allow for social distancing guidelines to be met, said Holly Ellman, the associate director for communications, in an email.Another alteration to the schedule concerns the December graduates, whose commencement will not be held until spring 2021.The graduates will still be classified as the class of 2020, and their diplomas will be mailed to the students’ permanent address.The adjustments go along with the TCU Connected Campus plan, which outlines some academic requirements for faculty. Instructors have to be prepared to teach each class using four course design models: on campus, modified on campus, dual and online. read more

Truth still elusive as another Politkovskaya trial ends

first_img Receive email alerts Follow the news on Russia December 14, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Truth still elusive as another Politkovskaya trial ends Help by sharing this information News May 21, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en RussiaEurope – Central Asia May 5, 2021 Find out more RussiaEurope – Central Asia center_img Paris, 1 p.m.: A Moscow court today sentenced retired Moscow police officer Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov to 11 years in prison for his role in Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya’s murder in 2006. The court also ordered him to pay the victim’s family 3 million roubles (74,500 euros) in compensation.“This rapid trial’s disappointing outcome has failed to reveal the full truth,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “Pavlyuchenkov manipulated the trial or the judicial system let it be manipulated. A guilty person has been punished but the verdict does not reflect the real role that this former police officer played in Politkovskaya’s murder.”“Key questions remain unanswered, including the mastermind’s identity, which Pavlyuchenkov had promised to reveal, and the part played by his former Moscow police colleagues, especially in the elaborate tailing of Politkovskaya before her murder. We hope the appeal hearings will be conducted in a more satisfactory manner, or else the judicial system will give the clear impression of covering up those responsible.”—-Paris, 10 a.m.: After just two days of hearings, judges are due to issue a verdict today in the trial of retired Moscow police lieutenant colonel Dmitry Pavlyuchenkov, one of the leading suspects in Novaya Gazeta reporter Anna Politkovskaya’s 2006 murder. Because Pavlyuchenkov cooperated with the prosecutors, the trial has been conducted in a very unusual manner – no witnesses have testified, no evidence has been examined and journalists have been barred from most of the hearings.“We are outraged by way this trial is being held,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Six years have passed since Anna Politkovskaya’s murder but it continues to have a major impact on freedom of information in Russia. Pavlyuchenkov’s arrest was seen as a major advance in the investigation but hopes have been dashed by this guilty-plea deal and the decision to stick to it at all cost. The sudden trial with no witnesses and with the press mostly excluded casts doubt on the existence of any desire to establish the truth and identify all of the perpetrators and instigators.”Charged under criminal code articles 105 (murder) and 222 (illegal carriage of a firearm), Pavlyuchenkov has admitted to arranging for Politkovskaya to be followed and providing the hitman with the murder weapon. The prosecutor has requested a sentence of 12 years in a prison camp, while the defence has requested a suspended sentence. Anna Stavitskaya, who represents the Politkovskaya family, has said she will appeal against the verdict if Pavlyuchenkov is not given the maximum sentence.Pavlyuchenkov was arrested on 23 August 2011 on suspicion of having organized the murder. Under a deal reached in May between Pavlyuchenkov and deputy prosecutor-general Viktor Grin, his case was isolated from the rest of the investigation and given special treatment, including an understanding that he would get no more than two-thirds of the maximum sentence. In return, Pavlyuchenkov agreed to plead guilty, testify against the other defendants and, above all, name the person who masterminded the murder.But, as the victim’s children, Vera Politkovskaya and Ilya Politkovsky, insist, Pavlyuchenkov “has not kept his side of the bargain.” On 8 October, they petitioned the Federal Committee of Investigation and the prosecutor-general’s office calling for the deal with Pavlyuchenkov to be rescinded. They said they have testimony proving that he has been minimizing his role in the murder and that in fact he played a key role. His various reported claims that the London-based oligarch Boris Berezovsky or the Chechen separatist leader Ahmed Zakayev were the mastermind were “politically motivated,” they said.The deal has also been challenged by the lawyer who represents one of the other suspects, former interior ministry official Sergey Khadzhikurbanov. He said “Pavlyuchenkov’s testimony constitutes the basis of the charges against the other defendants.” The presiding judge has rejected these petitions.In a Moscow news conference on the eve of the trial, Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitry Muratov said there was still a “political taboo” about the real mastermind’s identity. “Six years have gone by – it is time to ask difficult questions,” he said. Aside from Pavlyuchenkov and Khadzhikurbanov, four other people are accused in connection with the murder: Lom-Ali Gaitukayev, a Chechen organized crime leader who allegedly recruited Pavlyuchenkov, Rustam Makhmudov, the alleged hitman, and Makhmudov’s two brothers. According to the investigation, Gaitukayev received orders to murder Politkovskaya from an unknown mastermind and passed the job on to Khadzhikurbanov after being arrested in connection with another case.Politkovskaya, who was well known in both Russia and abroad for her outspoken coverage of the Caucasus and her criticism of the Kremlin, was gunned down in her Lesnaya Street apartment building in Moscow on 7 October 2006.
