Las 26 becas cubren cuatro categorías, además de la financiación administrativa por más de 319.630 dólares para apoyar las necesidades educativas, teológicas y formativas de la iglesia en América Latina y el Caribe.Las becas fueron aprobadas por el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal en la reunión de octubre de 2014.CETALC se formó después de que en 1976 se cerrara el Seminario Episcopal del Caribe, situado en Puerto Rico. En ese momento, el Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal estableció el Fondo Fiduciario para la Educación Teológica en América Latina y el Caribe, con los fondos de la venta de los bienes destinados a apoyar los programas de educación teológica de las diócesis que estaban utilizando el seminario.“Las becas para la educación teológica siguen desempeñando un papel importante en el apoyo a la preparación de hombres y mujeres para el ministerio en América Latina”, señaló la Rev. Glenda McQueen, Oficial de la Iglesia Episcopal para América Latina y el Caribe. “Las becas representan una de las pocas fuentes disponibles para becas de estudios teológicos en la región. Las demandas siguen aumentando y la CETALC se enfrenta al reto de definir las prioridades para el futuro”.Añadió, “a medida que la Iglesia en América Latina se esfuerza por obtener la sostenibilidad de la misión, la labor de CETALC debería tener un impacto significativo en el nuevo liderazgo de la Iglesia”.Las seis categorías de las becas de CETALC son: provincial, diocesano, la educación continua, la investigación y publicación, los estudios de posgrado y la beca para la tierra santa.Programas diocesanos• Brasil, Sur Occidental  $7,000.00• Colombia  $12,500.00• Costa Rica  $10,000.00• Cuba  $11,000.00• República Dominicana $14,000.00• Ecuador Litoral  $9,000.00• El Salvador $11,000.00• Guatemala  $11,000.00• Haití  $11,000.00• Honduras  $11,000.00• México Cuernavaca $8,000.00• México DF $14,000.00• México Occidente $6,000.00• México Norte $12,320.00• México Sureste $10,000.00• Panamá  $11,000.00• Porto Velho, Rondonia $10,000.00• Puerto Rico $13,000.00• Las Islas Vírgenes $10,000.00Programas provinciales y regionales• IX Provincia  $30,000.00• IARCA, CAETS $30,000.00• México (vocaciones)  $11,000.00Educación continua • Rvdo.

About 20 people are gathered there, keeping about two metres apart, at a blockade meant to keep workers from entering the site.Among those gathered is Bishop Larry Beardy, suffragan bishop of Northern Manitoba Area Mission of the Indigenous Spiritual Ministry of Mishamikoweesh, reached by the Anglican Journal by phone.“The main issue is COVID-19,” says Beardy. “In…all the First Nations and towns in northern Manitoba, there are no cases. And what [Manitoba] Hydro is trying to do is bring in workers—international workers—into the site. People that have been in other countries, and also the major pandemic centres like the United States.”Four Manitoba First Nations are partners in the Keeyask hydroelectric dam construction project. The blockade was erected by Tataskweyak Cree Nation community members in response to a scheduled shift change on May 19. The shift change was meant to replace the 600 workers who had been on the site since March with around 1,000 others. According to the CBC, those 1,000 workers would include workers from Canada and the United States.An injunction issued by the Manitoba Court of Queen’s Bench served Wednesday, May 20, ordered that the blockade be removed and Hydro be granted access to the construction site. When the RCMP delivered the injunction, Chief Doreen Spence of Tataskweyak Cree Nation “destroyed the injunction paper,” says Beardy. “Ripped it up.”Despite this strong statement, Beardy says relations with the RCMP have been fairly smooth at the blockade site.“It’s a temporary 10-day court injunction. So they have to kind of resolve the blockade within 10 days—the RCMP implied they would be back by then. But the RCMP put out a statement, they said they want a consultation process and also a peaceful outcome.” The RCMP have also participated in Beardy’s prayer services, where they are prayed for, as well.“What the RCMP are told by the elders, when the treaty was signed in 1908, the government told our people, the RCMP are here to protect us, not to throw us in jail. So that’s a message the RCMP have heard from the elders, and they must keep that treaty promise to the people.”Because the provincial highway is on reserve land, Beardy says, “basically what the leadership are implying is that provincial law does not apply on First Nation territory. So that might be a legal battle.”For communities who have so far been able to stave off the spread of COVID-19, Beardy says, minimizing the potential for bringing the virus to the area is of the utmost importance. “[An outbreak] would be devastating. We don’t have the facilities even to take in quarantine. Yesterday is the first time I had a bottle of sanitizer in my hand. There hasn’t been anything like that in the community. The health facilities are also inadequate. So you bring in the COVID-19 in the area, it’ll just devastate the population.”Beardy has visited the site several times to do prayers and blessings, and provide a ministry of presence. “[The] Rev. Martha Spence and [the] Rev. Elizabeth Beardy, who is my wife, we said prayers for the people right at the site. And then we blessed the site with oil, and signed the sign of the cross with my bishop’s staff,” he says.“I strongly believe God is in charge of everything here. We share scripture, and God is speaking with us.”Beardy says he is grateful for the support from across the church. There has also been support from other organizations like Manitoba Building Trades and Amnesty International.“I’ve been in contact with Archbishop Mark. We’ve been talking, and I know people are praying, praying for us. Because something like this, it reoccurs across the country. This is not the only place it’s happening where people are trying to fight COVID-19 from coming into the communities or the area,” he says.On May 25, according to a news release, Manitoba Hydro and the four Cree Nations came to an agreement to institute a new pandemic plan. “With blockades removed and the injunction no longer required, regular shipments of materials and supplies into the site will begin as soon as possible, as will a gradual increase in the number of workers on the project,” the release says. According to the statement, all incoming workers will be required to pass a COVID-19 test, and approximately 1,000 workers “will gradually return to continue construction on the project over the coming weeks.”‘We always gather in our hearts and spirits’For other relatively isolated Indigenous communities, the risk is posed not by workers entering the community, but non-resident tourists.“I’ve been doing my Sunday services but without Eucharist, and it’s only with myself and my great-grandson and one other person, sometimes—there’s only been three of us, and we have a church that’s big enough to hold 200 people,” says the Rev. Lily Bell. Bell is the priest at St. John’s, Old Masset, in Haida Gwaii, the archipelago off the coast of British Columbia that is the traditional home of the Haida Nation.There have so far been no cases of COVID-19 on the secluded islands that make up Haida Gwaii, but the Haida Nation has been stringent in its measures to prevent the virus from entering the community.The Council of the Haida Nation declared a state of local emergency March 23, mandating physical distancing, the closure of gathering places, no non-essential travel and self-isolation for anyone experiencing flu-like symptoms.Travel between the islands and the mainland is usually only possible via plane or a six-hour ferry ride to Prince Rupert. As of March 23, “non-resident and leisure travel” to Haida Gwaii has not been permitted. Residents returning must self-isolate for 14 days. The council has said these restrictions will remain in place at least until the end of June.“It’s only the ferry that’s coming here right now…. I believe that the Haida Nation has [said] that they’re going to be more careful, maybe not open up as quickly as other people,” says Bell. “They’re trying to keep everything closed, especially with the outsiders that may come. They’ve got all the camp areas and everything closed off, and the beaches.”The provincial health officer for British Columbia, Dr. Bonnie Henry, has supported the lockdown, stating that the First Nation has the ability and the authority to implement travel restrictions, according to the CBC. There are reportedly only 12 hospital beds and two ventilators on Haida Gwaii, meaning facilities could be quickly overwhelmed if a COVID-19 outbreak were to take place in the community.Normally at this time, Bell says, there would be lots of seasonal visitors coming to camp and visit the beach—though she notes most visitors bring their own supplies and don’t typically add much to the local economy. “[The Haida Nation] has been real strict in enforcing the rules, and I think it’s because of all the bad things that happened in the past with epidemics,” she says. Smallpox outbreaks and the 1918 Spanish flu have had devastating impacts on the nation in the past, Bell says. “One of the elders, [he’s] not living now, but his son remembered, and others remembered, that they said they were having probably three funerals a day at that time, when they had the Spanish flu. The smallpox was so bad that I believe that there probably wasn’t even time for ceremony.”Funerals are one of the most difficult rituals to navigate under the risk of COVID-19.“When we have a funeral, we always have a big gathering after, sharing food and so on. It’s been hard for the people,” says Bell.In the midst of the lockdown, she says, there were three funerals in one week, though none were deaths caused by COVID-19. They were only able to hold socially distanced services for a small group of people, with only a few prayers and no meeting in the church.Social distancing is taking a toll on the community, she says. “I think it’s mainly bothering us as a people, a Haida Nation, Haida people, that love to gather for sacred gatherings, like for when we lose a loved one, we always have sharing of food and some people do food burning and other things. But we’re always together and we give a lot of hugs—that’s really hard not to do. Even our little children, they love to hug Nani [grandmother], and everybody’s their Nani when you live in a community like here, and auntie and uncle, grandparents. So that’s hard, it’s really hard.”Still, she says people are careful to follow the rules. “We’re trying to be careful to make sure that we keep everybody safe and healthy…. We always gather in our hearts and spirits, so even if we’re apart, we know we’re together in our hearts and prayers and spirits.”Bell, who is 71, says she does not use much technology, but others in the community are able to live stream prayers and compline, and her great-grandson often posts her morning prayer on his Facebook page.Bell says, “Our creator God tells us to ‘be still and know that I am God.’ And I believe that’s what’s happening now.” There are small signs of hope; she says that in the forest behind her home, it seems the birds are chirping louder than ever, that salmon have already begun appearing this year, that the water seems cleaner than ever before.“We pray that this virus will come to pass, and we’re not only thinking of Haida Gwaii, but thinking of the whole world,” Bell says. “It’s been so hard and we never, ever thought we’d see this in our time. But I know that we’re called to be prayer warriors, so we’re praying more than ever, and thinking of what’s happening. And pray that things will get better for our children and their children’s children.”Sovereignty source of friction in South DakotaIn South Dakota, tensions between Indigenous nations and the state’s governor, Kristi Noem came to a head in May, when Noem demanded that checkpoints set up by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe and Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST) be removed from state and US highways.The checkpoints, which have been erected on highways on tribal land, are meant to help monitor and prevent the spread of COVID-19 into the reservations. Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Chairman Harold Frazier told CNN that the checkpoints would identify “people coming from ‘hot spots’ or highly infected areas,” and ask them to go around the tribe’s land. “With the lack of resources we have medically, this is our best tool we have right now to try to prevent [the spread of COVID-19],” Frazier said. Both tribes are mandating only essential travel on and off the reservation.In letters to the chiefs of the two communities, the governor threatened legal action if the checkpoints were not removed, and gave a deadline of 48 hours, which was not met. Noem reportedly appealed to the Trump administration, writing in a letter to the president that, “The time has come for formal federal action,” and requesting federal assistance instead of pursuing litigation. According to an NBC news report, a bipartisan group of 17 state legislators has discouraged Noem from taking legal action, saying that under the Fort Laramie Treaties of 1851 and 1868 and a 1990s appeal court ruling, that the state does not have authority within the boundaries of a reservation.“In my opinion, what it really comes down to is the old, old argument about white people in the west,” says the Rev. Edward Hunt, superintending presbyter for the Episcopal Church’s Pine Ridge Mission. “That it has to do with sovereignty, it has to do with government, might and power, and all that kind of stuff.”The OST is legally allowed to prevent anyone from coming onto their land, says Hunt. “The only federal agency that’s allowed, legally, in the reservation is the FBI, and they can only come here with the permission of the tribe for an approved investigation. So [the governor] can say whatever she wants, but it’s not going to work.”Hunt lives just outside the bounds of the Pine Ridge Reservation, in a town called Martin, S.D. With the reservation on lockdown, he is currently unable to enter, and cannot perform weddings, funerals, or any of his usual ministry. However, he says he respects the travel restrictions.“It’s very reasonable, and I definitely respect the tribal sovereignty of the people of Pine Ridge.”Analyses of data such as The Atlantic’s COVID Racial Data Tracker have shown that the virus is disproportionately affecting people of colour in the United States, including Indigenous communities. It was reported in May that the Navajo Nation, the largest and most populous reservation in the US, has more known COVID-19 cases per capita than any state in the country, with a total of 3,122 cases and at least 100 deaths reported.Hunt has suspended indoor worship at Episcopal churches in the reservation, but some challenges to his ministry remain. “Wakes and funerals are such a huge part, unfortunately, of life here…. I can’t drive to a cemetery in the reservation, because my travel is not essential.” For now, lay readers are taking over burial services.“My lay readers—I can’t say enough good about them. They are extremely brave and very, very confident, and I couldn’t do what I do without them. They are really, here, the backbone of the church, because they are the only ones that can do it. I can’t go on the reservation, so they are the only ones who are left to do that kind of work.“But I want to keep them safe as well. So you know, burial service only, the longer committal service from the prayer book, but by no means going to a two-night wake and funeral.”Hunt says Pine Ridge Reservation has had at least one case of COVID-19 but has managed to prevent any outbreaks. In general, he says he believes South Dakota’s low rate of cases to be a product of the lack of testing in the state.“I think here, it’s just now getting started. So we have a long way to go.”In the meantime, he says, the church community is in constant contact. “We’re always asking everyone’s opinion, we’re all willing to listen. No one is itching to open up the church or resume services or anything like that.”The diocese of South Dakota has more Native American members than any other diocese in the US-based Episcopal Church, with more than half of its congregations on tribal lands.

In 2013 the first Onix climbing house was created in the small town of Almelo (the Netherlands). A house, situated at the edge of a new development area in a town like Almelo and designwise unbothered by any municipal inspectorate interference, not only presents the opportunity to live directly adjacent to its garden: it also makes the idea of literally living at a ‘higher’ level seem quite appealing, which indeed was the case for its future owners Tjeerd Willem and Erna.Save this picture!SectionFollowing this concept, Onix has managed to develop a dwelling for them, which indeed offers multi-level living possibilities as the house keeps on spiralling upward through a large number of different floor levels, till it finally ends in a roof terrace.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopEach floor level differs a mere 75 cm from the previous one, giving the building an atmosphere of continuous space. In addition, as these differences in height are quite minor, the use of balustrades for safety could luckily be avoided. For now the house incorporates 10 floor levels, allowing the possibility to build even higher in the future though.Save this picture!© Peter van der KnoopThe house is completely made of wood. The exterior consists of vertical planks, the interior and walls of multiplex. Tjeerd Willem has chosen to finish the interior walls himself, as well as build a concrete countertop for the kitchen. The interior is actually furnished in one piece: a continuous and complex totality of connected stairs, floors, walls, ceilings and wardrobes.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe design is reminiscent of Adolf Loos’ ‘Raumplan’. The climbing house with its surface area of 7 x 9m is extended to a gross floor area of 10 x 10m, thus integrating the structure in the space and allowing it to become ornament, structure, furniture as well as stairs, all at the same time.Project gallerySee allShow less20 Scholarships the AA BILBAO Visiting School: COMPUTING TOPOS III 2014 / Bilbao, SpainEventConference: Urban Routines 2013/14Event Share CopyAbout this officeOnixOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAlmeloHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on July 01, 2014Cite: “Stair House / Onix” 01 Jul 2014.

Boston bus drivers stand ground against Veolia

first_imgUnion members and supporters celebrate after a jury aquits Kirschbaum of Veolia’s union-busting charges in Dorchester, Mass., March 5.WW photo: Liz GreenThe unique approach of Boston School Bus Drivers, Steelworkers Local 8751, to unionism and solidarity with the oppressed offers a much needed new blueprint for building power within the community. During my travels there, it was quite inspiring to see a local union work hand in hand with neighborhood youth against police brutality. It was quite encouraging to see the rank and file of the Boston school bus drivers work with parents and community members to organize against school closings and badly timed budget cuts to public education.Steve Kirschbaum with journalist Lamont Lilly, right.Photo: Ken YarboroughUSW Local 8751 was founded in 1978 through efforts of the bus driver organizers to desegregate the Boston public schools. It was four years prior, in 1974, that busloads of defenseless children were attacked by racist vigilantes and the Ku Klux Klan in Boston’s Roxbury district. The school bus drivers who worked these desegregation routes were not only physically attacked in the streets; they were harassed on the job by school administrators and parent-teacher organizations. The need for organized camaraderie was a matter of survival.Veolia’s current attack on the Boston School Bus Drivers Union was directed in particular at four members of Local 8751: Recording Secretary and Charleston Chief Steward Andre François; Vice President Steve Gillis; Former President Garry Murchison; and Grievance Chair and union founder Stevan Kirschbaum. In spite of phony felony charges brought against Kirschbaum by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on behalf of Veolia in July of 2014, union members stuck together and remained diligent — workers remained inspired and dedicated to one common goal. Just recently, in early March, a jury returned a not-guilty verdict after 10 minutes of deliberation.Local 8751The degree of unity of Local 8751 is an inspiration to the working class all over the U.S. … actually all over the world. Union organizers and rank-and-file members have stood tall against a corporate parasite for 18 months now. The four leaders who were fired (Francois, Gillis, Kirshbaum and Murchison) have since exhausted their employment benefits and have had to depend on allies and fellow union members. In spite of such obstacles, solidarity and team morale remain strong.Even while fired, the four leaders have continued to organize and build resistance. Weekly rallies and mass meetings have continued to convene at nearby bus yards, union halls and in the community. Solidarity and working-class support have poured in from all over the country. Local organizers have continued to coordinate national call-in days to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. During the trial of Kirschbaum, every court hearing was completely packed with community supporters through “people’s mobilizations.”Their goal is not only to get their four leaders reinstated, but to build a local movement against austerity measures, political repression, racism and resegregation. Not only is Local 8751 fighting to protect local union rights, they’re fighting to ensure that “Black lives matter” and that children of all races, social strata and ethnic backgrounds have equal access to a good education in Boston. Any union that’s fighting side by side with oppressed communities against poor conditions and gentrification is my kind of union. They also have a strong foundation in the anti-war and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer movements. They have openly advocated for an end to the Israeli occupation of historic Palestine for years and constructed one of the first union contracts to protect LGBTQ workers from on-the-job harassment and employment discrimination.Resistance to Veolia’s sordid recordMultinational corporate giant Veolia Inc. is a French-based global conglomerate founded in 1853 under the orders of Napoleon III. Veolia’s first order of privatization was the control and supply of water throughout France. Unfortunately, Veolia has since then privatized water in Africa, India and Latin America. Currently, Veolia has accrued more profit from the distribution and resale of water than any other corporation in the world.Over the years, its trail of corporate greed and worker exploitation has only continued to expand and grow more ruthless. Today, Veolia’s vast business ventures include energy and transportation, waste management and environmental maintenance, television, film and mass media.According to a recent report by local organizers, in the sector of transportation “Veolia has waged anti-union campaigns against bus drivers from San Francisco, Phoenix, Baltimore and Denver. Veolia assumed management of the Boston public school buses in July of 2013. Since then, Veolia has refused to honor the terms of union contracts, completely ignoring pre-established grievance and arbitration procedures. Since the arrival of Veolia in Boston, bus drivers’ wages, benefits and working conditions have only worsened. Veolia’s corporate strategy of divide and conquer includes union busting and worker intimidation.” (bostonschoolbus5.org)Boston’s public school bus drivers aren’t just fighting for a better contract and higher wages. They’re fighting for their livelihood and quality of life. They’re fighting for the collective well-being of the entire community. The struggle to reinstate the four leaders who were fired is a direct reflection of the struggle to preserve the entire working class. As they have stood tall, so should we.Lilly is a leader of the Durham, N.C., branch of Workers World Party.

Publication of Mohamed picture triggers riots, journalist’s arrest

first_img January 16, 2014 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Publication of Mohamed picture triggers riots, journalist’s arrest News News Reporters Without Borders condemns yesterday’s arrest of Jitendra Prasad Das, a subeditor with the regional Oriya-language daily Samaj in Cuttack, in the eastern state of Odisha, in connection with the publication of a picture of the Prophet Mohammed on 14 January.The media freedom organization also calls for investigations into attacks on the newspaper’s offices in Cuttack and other cities in Odisha so that those responsible can be brought to justice.“We urge the authorities to release Jitendra Prasad Das without delay,” Reporters Without Borders said. “They must not bow to pressure from the street. This journalist committed no crime and arresting him just to defuse the anger of fundamentalists is not justifiable.“We regret that Samaj did not protect this young journalist by taking responsibility for publishing the picture. This attitude is indicative of the pressure under which it was placed and the self-censorship it feels forced to adopt.”Reporters Without Borders points out that:- The only curbs on freedom of information tolerated under article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights are those that protect the rights or reputations of others, national security, public order, or public health or morals. The criteria for applying any such restrictions on freedom of expression and information must be extremely precise.- Restriction of freedom of expression and information under criminal law is only permitted in cases of spoken or written words manifestly inciting hatred, violence or discrimination against a community or individual, or violating a person’s privacy.- And finally, a strict distinction must be made between offences against beliefs, ideas and dogma, on the one hand, and offences against persons, on the other. Only the second are admissible in law.The offending picture of the Prophet accompanied a short text in a special issue that Samaj published on 14 January, which Muslims celebrate as his birthday. News As Islam forbids any pictorial representation of Mohamed, members of the Muslim community demonstrated outside the newspaper’s offices in Cuttack, Balasore, Rourkela and Kendrapada, demanding a public apology. Although editor Satya Ray published an apology in the newspaper, protesters ransacked its Balasore office and torched its Rourkela office.As the person supposedly responsible for the inclusion of the picture, Das was arrested at the newspaper’s headquarters in Cuttack yesterday on a charge of “hurting religious sentiments.”When the entire editorial staff told the police that they wanted to be arrested, the police said they were arresting Das just to defuse street tension. He was nonetheless taken before a judge.Calling for Das’ release, National Union of Journalists secretary general Prasanna Mohanty criticized the Samaj management for giving Das’ name to the police instead of taking collective responsibility.Last month, Reporters Without Borders published a report on blasphemy entitled “Information sacrificed on altar of religion.” It examines the dangers to freedom of information from censorship in the name of religion and the belief that religion and “traditional values” should be untouchable. Working as journalist is tough in India, which is ranked 140th out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index and which is one of the world’s deadliest countries for media personnel.

How to Order the Perfect Amount of Food for Your Next Event

first_img2. Beverages – Plan on about 3 beverages per person, with coffee drinkers consuming on average one cup every 1.3 hours. First, consider the length of the event. For example, an evening cocktail party requires considerably less food than an entire afternoon or all-day event. The longer guests remain, the more they’ll consume. When estimating, always round up to be on the safe side. Some will eat more, others less. It will all balance out in the end. Try to anticipate which foods/drinks are most popular and will disappear quickly. Order more of these selections. 3. Breakfast – People usually drink 2 beverages on average – either juice, coffee, tea, etc. Fruit makes an excellent breakfast dessert. Choose from Pancakes, Egg Sandwich, Egg, Ham & Cheese, Hash Browns. Plan for one sandwich per person. faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Business News Pasadena Eats, The Dining Blog How to Order the Perfect Amount of Food for Your Next Event From STAFF REPORTS Published on Wednesday, March 1, 2017 | 12:04 pm Community News Top of the News Your email address will not be published.

The Court was adjudicating upon a writ petition filed by Dr. Sarita Kishor Parikh and Glenn Paul Fernandez. During the Video Conference, the Additional Public Prosecutor (APP), JP Yagnik, had submitted before the Bench that the record of investigation and enquiry needed to be brought before the Court. He insisted that the same may be presented over a physical hearing as the records run into a number of pages and since the investigation is under way, they should not be sent by email. He also pointed out that the petitioners had, without his knowledge or consent, requested for a virtual hearing of the matters. It was at this juncture that the Petitioner No. 2, Glenn Paul Fernandez, rudely interrupted the proceedings and started using vulgar and abusive language while addressing the Court. He stated that the Bombay High Court had “destroyed them” and that the two petitioners were “not ready to come to the Court for physical hearing.” Moreover, he remarked that if the matter was not heard by the Court through video conferencing, he would “espouse his cause through media”. The Court was requested by the Public Prosecutor to imitate contempt proceedings against Fernandez however, the bench chose to show “show judicial grace and magnanimity” and refrained from issuing the notice. Nevertheless, the Judges observed that it would be “impossible” to proceed with the hearing virtually, for two reasons: “Firstly, in case petitioner No.2 is allowed to argue, he would continue his arguments in vulgar and abusive language and secondly, as rightly submitted by the learned APP, the enquiry / investigation papers which, according to him, are running into a number of pages and since the investigation is in progress, it would not be desirable to send the same by e-mail.” The Court has thus listed this matter for a physical hearing on 29th January, 2021.

Greek gifts bear fruit but honesty withers on vine

first_imgThe gifted footballers of Greece may have demonstrated the power of teamworkand a commitment to their country by becoming European football champions, butthe Greek nation comes bottom of the league for tax honesty. A report by theEuropean Commission shows that more than 20 per cent of work-by-value goesundeclared in Greece. Undeclared work in an Enlarged EU shows the UK is farmore honest, with only 2 per cent of its gross domestic product concealed fromthe tax authorities, second only to Austria (1.5 per cent). Other high-mindedcountries were The Netherlands, Sweden, Belgium and (Greek) Cyprus. The‘informal economy’ – ie, tax dodging – was also a problem in Hungary andLatvia. http://europa.eu.int/comm/employment_social/employment_analysis/work/undecl_work_final_en.pdf Comments are closed.

Influence of anisotropy on velocity and age distribution at Scharffenbergbotnen blue ice area

first_imgWe use a full-Stokes thermo-mechanically coupled ice-flow model to study the dynamics of the glacier inside Scharffenbergbotnen valley, Dronning Maud Land, Antarctica. The domain encompasses a high accumulation rate region and, downstream a sublimation-dominated bare ice ablation area. The ablation ice area is notable for having old ice at its surface since the vertical velocity is upwards, and horizontal velocities are almost stagnant there. We compare the model simulation with field observations of velocities and the age distribution of the surface ice. A satisfactory match with simulations using an isotropic flow law was not found because of too high horizontal velocities and too slow vertical ones. However, the existence of a pronounced ice fabric may explain the present day surface velocity distribution in the inner Scharffenbergbotnen blue ice area. Near absence of data on the temporal evolution of Scharffenbergbotnen since the Late Glacial Maximum necessitates exploration of the impact of anisotropy using prescribed ice fabrics: isotropic, single maximum, and linear variation with depth, in both two-dimensional and three dimensional flow models. The realistic velocity field simulated with a non-collinear orthotropic flow law, however produced surface ages in significant disagreement with the few reliable age measurements and suggests that the age field is not in a steady state and that the present distribution is a result of a flow reorganization at about 15 000 yr BP. In order to fully understand the surface age distribution a transient simulation starting from the Late Glacial Maximum including the correct initial conditions for geometry, age, fabric and temperature distribution would be needed. It is the first time that the importance of anisotropy has been demonstrated in the ice dynamics of a blue ice area. This is useful to understand ice flow in order to better interpret archives of ancient ice for paleoclimate research.last_img read more
