I was swamped. Then the news broke from Charlottesville. Confrontation and violence on the streets of a normally beautiful college town.I asked myself, “Marty, shouldn’t you respond? Shouldn’t you post something, blog something, offer a word or a thought or – well, something?” It felt like the answer should be “Yes”, but what should I say or do? From my point of view, decrying the white supremacists and pointing out how wrong they are would be an exercise in informing people of what they already know. It’s just so obvious. To me that is. Consequently, what could I contribute?And even as I’m thinking all this inside my head, the knee-jerk reactions start pouring out and into my phone, TV, computer, and iPad. OK. To be honest, castigating some of the responses as “knee-jerk” may be too pejorative. Some of them were well thought-out and worthy. Others were just the literary equivalent of a string of four-letter words. Some of them actually and literally were a string of four-letter words! A member of my own family could only respond by dropping an “F-bomb” on Facebook. Some of the most awful reactions came from people with whom I am in absolute agreement about the scourge of racism, white nationalism, and Neo-Nazism. I was ready for the vitriol from those who back that morally bankrupt line of thought. I was not ready – though I should have been (I guess I’m still a bit naïve) – for the hate that came from the mouths and pen and keystrokes of progressives.And even as I’m thinking all this inside my head, the knee-jerk reactions start pouring out and into my phone, TV, computer, and iPad.

I was not ready – though I should have been (I guess I’m still a bit naïve) – for the hate that came from the mouths and pen and keystrokes of progressives.So, seeing the early and emotional reactions sprouting up from private persons, prognosticators, and pundits alike, I decided to wait a bit. The moment seemed to call me to stop and think. Do I need to react at all? If I posted or blogged or offered my tortured verbiage every time one of the ills of our society was put on display (as so graphically happened in Charlottesville), I would hardly ever get anything else done but writing comments. And that’s not all a bishop is elected to do. By a long shot. Besides, if I comment on everything, I’ll be the boy who cried wolf. No one will pay any attention, and I will have effectively drowned myself out by the volume of my own commenting.So, seeing the early and emotional reactions sprouting up from private persons, prognosticators, and pundits alike, I decided to wait a bit.

No one will pay any attention, and I will have effectively drowned myself out by the volume of my own commenting.Obviously, my second thoughts didn’t clear matters up, but they helped me to know that I needed time to think. I’ve had a few days to do that, now. So, helpful or not, here’s what I’ve been thinking …Charlottesville, Virginia. It used to bring to me historic remembrances of the Civil War in which it figured somewhat prominently. Now it reminds me that the causes of the Civil War have not gone away. They’re egregiously, terrifyingly present in our society and our day. Racism, one group feeling superior to another, and the accompanying, pervasive sense of entitlement – all these have not gone away. Yes, these, and so many other faults in our national life, are just too ubiquitous to ignore.How do I react to that truth? What do I do about it?Right now, my thoughts take me back to the five baptismal promises that, together with the Nicene Creed, form The Baptismal Covenant of The Episcopal Church (see p. 304-5, The Book of Common Prayer, 1979). They’re all pertinent to this sad occurrence, but the 2nd, 4th, and 5th are most applicable:2.) Will you persevere in resisting evil, and, whenever you fall into sin, repent and return to the Lord?4.) Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbor as yourself?5.) Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?To all these questions, each individual answers: “I will, with God’s help.” This is her or his expression of intent. Here are the lessons I learn anew in this moment by revisiting numbers 2, 4, & 5.To resist evil, I must acknowledge that evil is also part of me. Resisting evil will not make me good. Whenever I resist evil, I stand the very real chance of falling into sin. I may become the mirror image of that which I resist. I think that happened in Charlotte. Clearly there was enough confrontation, enough in-your-face derision and contempt from both sides to set off what happened. Yes, a single fanatic drove the car into the crowd injuring many and killing a woman who, by all reports, was a concerned and caring person. But this was mob mentality. And there was a bit too much of it on all sides. So, repent we must. I must. For even though I wasn’t there, I cannot say I have had no part in racism’s persistence on this globe. My sins are surely sins of omission as well as commission. When I resist evil, I may fall into sin. I must keep that in mind lest I sanctify my hate, consecrate how I dehumanize another, or hallow my false assumption that I am superior because my beliefs are so much purer.I am called to love Christ in all persons because each person I meet is Christ in disguise. Jesus made that clear, so I am called to love Christ in all persons. Not white ones or black ones or those of any other hue. All persons. I promised to do that. I’ve renewed that promise uncounted times. I’m supposed to mean it. Loving my neighbor as myself is hard because I don’t get to choose who my neighbor is. I have never had control of who enters my life – maybe over who continues in my life – but never over who enters. I have promised to love that person be she a stranger, newly met, or be he a beloved friend of long-standing. I have vowed to love my neighbor as myself even if he joins the White Nationalists, even if she rallies with Neo-Nazis, even if he puts on the bed-sheet hood of a KKKlansman. That person too is the Christ I am to seek and serve.I am called to love Christ in all persons because each person I meet is Christ in disguise.

That person too is the Christ I am to seek and serve. Wow that’s hard.It strikes close to home, too. My extended family, in the last several years, has become gloriously colorful. By that I mean, we are no longer all ofIt strikes close to home, too. My extended family, in the last several years, has become gloriously colorful. By that I mean, we are no longer all of European descent, aka white. My son is married to a woman who is at least partly of African descent, who unabashedly shares that she has a multi-racial background. She is my daughter. Period. My wife’s sister’s daughter, our niece, just got engaged to a man she met in college; he too is of African descent. I look forward to the day when he is my nephew. My niece’s brother, our nephew, recently married a Turkish woman who is Muslim. I’m going to Maine in September to their U.S. wedding reception (the big party in Turkey was a couple of weeks ago). I am happy beyond words that they found each other.Resist evil. Repent. Love your neighbor who is Christ in disguise. What else?Oh yes. Strive for justice and peace and respect the dignity of all. These certainly go hand-in-hand with and build upon the other two. To seek justice and peace is not to seek victory. Justice is not served by squashing our neighbor, nor by using war to impose peace. Everyone — and this includes those who believe their white supremacist creed, or any other belief I would classify as bigotry — are children of their Creator God. That — not their actions — means they deserve their dignity; that means I must respect their dignity as I have promised. It would be nice if they’d respect me in return, or respect their neighbors, their fellow human beings, in return. However, the promises I made to God, when I answered the Baptismal Covenant questions as I did, do not have a proviso about reciprocity. It is not, I’ll respect their dignity if they respect mine. My promise has no quid pro quos.In the end, this is not about politics and groupings as much as it is about values. Both sides need to respect the other side. Though I’m not so naïve as to think that respect will blossom like wild flowers in the near future, that is the world we are called to build. That is God’s dream for his creation.I pray that I will be a voice who can promote the civility needed to seek the ground of our common humanity. There’s too much shouting. Never once has another person or group of persons been converted to my point of view because I screamed at him or her. Or threatened. Or hurled insults. But sometimes — if I respect their dignity, love them as a neighbor because they are Christ present to me, strive for justice and peace for them not just for me, and resist evil and repent when I fall into sin — just sometimes, I am able to understand where another person is coming from, share my values, and help that person see another way to live and move and have their being.The Church spread through the first century world, one person at a time. The Christ-given values the Church espouses can be spread the same way.The Rt. Rev.

Diocese of Southeast Florida’s affordable housing uninhabitable since June; seniors…

All 177 residents were forced to leave indefinitely, and most of them have been living in hotel rooms paid for by the St. Andrews board, which has committed to paying for residents’ rooms and meals through Aug. 21, but it’s unclear whether the board will continue to pay for their accommodations until the building is repaired.The 15-story building was purchased in 2009 by St. Andrews Residence of the Diocese of Southeast Florida Inc., a nonprofit corporation created by the diocese, which rents the building under the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Section 202 program for subsidized housing for people over age 62. SPM, a firm based in Birmingham, Alabama, manages the property and did not respond to multiple requests for comment.The building is situated directly on the Intracoastal Waterway in downtown West Palm Beach, between a waterfront amphitheater park and the Trump Plaza condo towers. It advertises amenities like a fitness center, beauty shop, library and community dining room.But St. Andrews has been plagued with problems in recent years, including three instances of electrical malfunctions causing smoke or flames. Residents told The Palm Beach Post the building has pervasive black mold, which has damaged furniture and clothing, and that its elevators don’t work properly. However, the Rev. Paul Rasmus – chair of the building’s operating committee – told local NBC affiliate station WPTV that he thinks there is “very little, if any” mold. Rasmus retired as rector of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Lake Worth, just south of West Palm Beach, in June 2019.Questions addressed to the diocese and Bishop Peter Eaton were referred to Aimee Adler Cooke, a communications consultant. When asked by Episcopal News Service why the dangerous conditions reported by local media outlets persisted for so long, Adler Cooke said, “We aren’t responding to the accuracy or inaccuracy of media stories.”In October 2018, part of the rooftop air conditioning system at St. Andrews Residence caught on fire, leaving the residents without air conditioning for about a week, according to WPTV.On March 2, 2020, residents had to be temporarily evacuated in the middle of the night when an electrical malfunction caused parts of the building to fill with smoke.On June 14, another electrical malfunction caused smoke in the building. This time, the system that distributes electricity to all 15 floors was found to be damaged beyond repair and would need to be replaced. According to The Palm Beach Post, the city declared the building uninhabitable and the residents were forced to leave until repairs were made, with no consistent time frame for when they might return. Some went to stay with friends or relatives. Those who had nowhere else to go – 152 of the residents – were put up in hotels around the area and have been receiving three meals a day, all paid for by the board, Adler Cooke confirmed.All this happened just as Florida’s coronavirus outbreak was spiraling out of control. Since all the residents are over 62 and many have underlying health conditions, they are at high risk for serious illness and death from COVID-19. Some residents who had been moved to hotels told the Post they were worried about the increased risk of infection associated with moving into a hotel.On Aug. 2, SPM delivered a memo to the residents staying in hotels along with their meals, the Post reported. SPM said it was making a temporary fix to the building’s electrical system and every unit had to be inspected before the tenants could return. Then the memo said something that alarmed the residents whose hotel rooms and meals were being paid for.“We have secured continued funding for that purpose through August 14th, but we cannot assure that additional money will be available after that date, or that the building will be ready for occupancy on that date,” the memo read.Some took that to mean that they might soon have no place to go.“It kind of had me quite upset because I could end up homeless,” said 77-year-old Jim Jensen, who has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and is staying at a Red Roof Inn about six miles away, according to the Post.Several residents have sought help from the Legal Aid Society of Palm Beach County, which is working with the county to identify sources of funds that could continue paying for the hotel rooms if the board stops paying, the Post reported.Adler Cooke told ENS the St. Andrews board has extended funding for hotels and meals through Aug. 21. When asked what will happen to the residents if the building is not ready for occupancy by then, Adler Cooke said, “All are working around the clock to determine a safe reentry date.”Adler Cooke would not answer questions about whether the building next door, St. James Residence, is also associated with the diocese or whether it has experienced similar problems, and she would not say who is on the St. Andrews board. Some documents filed with the state of Florida and the Internal Revenue Service list Eaton and other diocesan leaders as board members, while others list a larger group of different people.Despite having no guarantee that they will have a place to live in a week and a half, St. Andrews residents told the Post they have been paying rent. Adler Cooke said the board is considering rent abatement. And while some residents have expressed fears that the diocese will sell the building, Adler Cooke told ENS there are no plans to do so.– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

The house is divided into two main volumes. The “living bar” includes the kitchen, living and dining areas and two bedrooms. When the client’s whole family inhabits the house for vacations or holidays, the “sleeping bar” containing more bedrooms and living areas is used. To conserve energy when not in use the sleeping bar can be decommissioned, effectively halving the size of the house and its total energy use.

The materials within the space were selected both for their durability in the harsh ocean environment as well as their sustainable properties.

A few blocks from the Suquía River and next to the Barrio Alta Córdoba Train Station, the house is located in a small urban lot of 105m2 in a well-connected area. The proposal intends to make a contribution to the built environment by intervening in a residual space, achieving the completion of the urban fabric and thus valuing the already consolidated environment, favouring the social mix and taking advantage of the current services and infrastructure lines. On a small lot of 7mx15m, the proposal makes vertical sense by organizing the program in a series of overlapping floors in order to optimize the approach. The project rejects any spatial hierarchy in order to become an open and flexible system of multiple connections calling for continuity and freedom.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!Floor Plan First FloorSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe ground floor is presented as a stimulating space that allows a great variety of activities where its inhabitants will discover new forms of uses and appropriation for the same space. On the ground floor, the entire lot is recognized, placing the access stairs to the first floor at the end of the lot, with the intention of passing through the entire space before entering the interior of the first floor. The social area is developed on the first floor, in an integrated space with the living room, the kitchen, the dining room and a double-height terrace with the idea of being immersed in one total space, allowing the perception from side to side of the tight terrain, favoring a search for a wider spatial continuity. A set of superimposed stairs allow to explore and understand the spatiality of the building leading to the next floors where the bedrooms are located, ending with a terrace that reclaims the views of the neighbourhood.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliThe direction of circulation is strengthened through the use of the red colour that accompanies the spaces, tensioning horizontally and vertically from the access, the staircase and ceiling. The perimeter becomes thick by means of a curtain of vegetation and a pre-moulded concrete sunshade system on the facade that faces the street, thus resolving the privacy of the house in a sequence of layers between the outside and the inside, between the public and the intimate. In this way, the entire house is screened by a filter that wraps the front, accompanying it with a jasmine curtain that perfumes all environments.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Federico CairoliThe use of the pieces that make up the concrete screening plays a role of great expression in the composition of the facade, resolving the security and privacy of the house giving rise to a play of light and shadow creating an atmosphere of great warmth. The proposal is materialized with an independent structure of exposed concrete slabs that complete all the floors solely based on their respective medians, with the aim of giving the floor maximum flexibility and the possibility of defining the interior environments with fittings or spaces resolved in wood. The proposal encourages the idea of living close to urban centres reducing the impact of mobility, in order to reach the optimal parameters of a sustainable city.Save this picture!© Federico CairoliProject gallerySee allShow lessKliment Halsband Architects on Its New Ugandan Surgical FacilityInterviewsTham & Videgård Win Competition to Design +One Tower in SwedenArchitecture News Share Save this picture!© Federico Cairoli+ 21Curated by Clara Ott Share Photographs CopyHouses•Córdoba, Argentina Lead Architect: Area:  254 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project center_img Photographs:  Federico Cairoli FL House / Berzero JarosSave this projectSaveFL House / Berzero Jaros Houses 2017 Agustin Berzero, Valeria Jaros ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/929167/fl-house-berzero-jaros Clipboard “COPY” Projects Year:  CopyAbout this officeEstudio Berzero JarosOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCordobaArgentinaPublished on December 02, 2019Cite: “FL House / Berzero Jaros” [Casa FL / Berzero Jaros] 02 Dec 2019.

Swedish journalists arrested in Ethiopia after leaving Somalia, Somali journalist threatened with extradition to Ethiopia

first_img Ethiopia arbitrarily suspends New York Times reporter’s accreditation News May 21, 2021 Find out more News RSF_en Help by sharing this information EthiopiaAfrica News Receive email alerts RSF condemns NYT reporter’s unprecedented expulsion from Ethiopia to go furthercenter_img EthiopiaAfrica News Reporters Without Borders condemns the apparent complicity between the Ethiopian authorities and those in Somalia’s semi-autonomous northeastern region of Puntland in arresting journalists and trying to gag the media.Two Swedish journalists, reporter Martin Schibbye and photographer Johan Persson, were arrested after crossing from Puntland into Ethiopia’s troubled Ogaden region and covering rebel activity there, while a Somali journalist originally from the Ogaden, Faysal Mohamed Hassan, is reportedly now facing possible extradition to Ethiopia after being sentenced to a year in prison in Bossasso, Puntland’s commercial capital.“The authorities in Addis Ababa must clarify the circumstances of the arrest of the two Swedish journalists and provide information about their current status,” Reporters Without Borders said. “We must insist that journalists cannot be treated as rebels just because they were covering rebel activity.”“We urge the Ethiopian government to guarantee access to the Ogaden for journalists and human rights activists. The news blackout that has been imposed on what is taking place in this region is outrageous. It forces journalists to enter the region illegally and just fuels suspicion that terrible human rights violations are taking place there.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We also deplore the sentence imposed on Hassan and we are concerned to learn that the Puntland authorities may be considering his extradition simply because of his ethnic origin, although he is a Somali journalist who works in Somalia. They are apparently trying to get rid of him and to send him to a region where he is liable to be persecuted.”Schibbye and Persson, who work for the Kontinent news agency, were arrested by the Ethiopian authorities after crossing into the Ogaden illegally to investigate reports of human rights violations. Shortly before their arrest, they sustained injuries in a clash between Ethiopian government forces and armed rebels of the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF), in which 15 rebels were killed. The two journalists are now being held in Jijiga. The ONLF claims that the Puntland authorities spotted them at Galkayo airport and followed them to the Ethiopian border in order to facilitate their arrest by the Ethiopian authorities.Anna Roxvall, a Swedish journalist who is friend of the two detained journalists, said they entered the Ogaden to investigate reports of atrocities by the Ethiopian armed forces against the local population. “They are in a region that is closed to journalists but they entered from Somalia,” she said. “They are in an extremely dangerous region.”Hassan, who reports for the Hiiran Online news website, was given the one-year jail sentence on 2 July after being convicted on charges of endangering Puntland’s security and reporting false information under articles 215 and 219 of the Somali criminal code for writing about the murder of two alleged members of the Puntland security forces in Bossasso.His defence lawyer accused Judge Sheik Aden Aw Ahmed of convicting Hassan although Bari district court prosecutor Bashir Mohamed Osman failed to produce any real evidence against him. The authorities seem to have it in for Hassan, who is now being held in the main Bossasso prison, because they are reportedly considering his extradition to Ethiopia solely because he comes from an Ogaden ethnic group.
