It sounds like they are generally in line with what you are suggesting is necessary. Submit a Job Listing November 23, 2017 at 12:39 am 2009-DO31 called for U.S. to lower atmospheric carbon as CO2 by 25 % by 2020. Someone find any scientific study from that timeframe showing how that was possible without hard economic impacts to all classes of society.2009-CO12 urges scientific integrity in environmental policy.2009-CO70 concerning the church’s facilities: made public commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50 % within 10 years. Did anyone have a plan for such an impossible goal for almost every facility?2012-BO23 Read this, as it is long and I will only capture what I read. It resolves to work for the just transformation away from all fossil fuels, then lumps them all together “including all forms of oil, coal, and natural gas.” It is this vast statement that lumps all fossil fuels together, yet environmental impacts vary tremendously. And then we are to resist the development of what is termed “unconventional” and probably natural gas is in there for writers of this. Well, I wish Germany had the natural gas resources to fully substitute for coal.Of course the resolutions had draft histories which get at author’s intents, and that is useful.I know people work hard and mean for good, but it reads as easy words with a lot of duality, the evil fossil fuels and the companies pushing them. This administration is a wash for finding the middle ground. But an article came out the other day in an engineering magazine about 4 major oil companies still pursuing plans to decrease methane leakage in facilities. But not all, Chevron was notably absent. So who talks to them, embarrassing them for not keeping up with their peers? Regulations will never be enough and actually failed miserably in the history of oilfield wastes.

November 25, 2017 at 10:37 am Is it possible to be part of the Divine Dance when the climate-change reality brings up a lot of raw emotions in working for a better future? Since climate change has moved into the world of litigation, oil industry responses are driven to a large extent by sophisticated law firms. Even the way that some sign on to a public declaration of reducing natural-gas leakage vs those that do not, is driven by different attorney teams. Chevron and Ecuador has seared into their legal culture how to respond to charges about oilfield waste impacts that will lead to litigation (and do not judge that case and people until fully studying both sides). So consider the patterns of what major defense firms do, and use that. The “Ropel Proposal” related to the tobacco industry laid out a familiar strategy when trying to control “negative” outcomes to a particular industry: “litigation, politics and public opinion” (thank you Robert Proctor).This is reality, and if I (or you) burn out in righteous indignation or poor action choices based on my ego-driven duality, I will not accomplish the things that I believe God has willed for me (or you or the Church). I have no doubt that the Holy Spirit is present and knows the way through this. May we listen. Environment & Climate Change Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Featured Events Episcopalians representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry welcome visitors to their booth in the public zone of the COP23 conference in Bonn, Germany. Photo courtesy of Marc Andrus[Episcopal News Service] Episcopalians have returned home after spending two weeks in Bonn, Germany, representing Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and contributing voices of faith in support of environmental stewardship during the U.N. climate change summit held there.The Nov. 6-17 conference, officially known as the 23rd Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP23, was an annual intergovernmental meeting to focus on global dialogue and action. The Episcopal Church, granted observer status, sent about a dozen Episcopalians to continue the church’s advocacy that began at the previous two conferences.“The Episcopal Church, through the presiding bishop’s delegation, is taking a very strong presence in the life of these climate summits,” Diocese of California Bishop Marc Andrus told Episcopal News Service after returning from COP23. “We’re making strong networks in the faith communities.”Andrus and his wife, Sheila Andrus, spent the full two weeks in Bonn, while two groups of Episcopalians alternated in participating in the first week and then the second week. They led daily worship services, maintained a booth with information on the church’s environmental advocacy and, on a more limited basis, were able as observers to enter the U.N. zone where the intergovernmental negotiations were occurring.Diocese of California Bishop Marc Andrus helps lead an opening chant at an interfaith prayer service in Bonn, Germany, before delivering a statement titled “Walk Gently on the Earth” to the COP23 leadership. Photo courtesy of Marc Andrus“I’m very, very grateful to Presiding Bishop [Michael] Curry for trusting us, this delegation, with this work that I consider so vital, and it’s a great honor to serve,” Andrus said. “Our church is responding in an important and beautiful way.”The Episcopal Church has made environmental justice one of its three priorities, in addition to racial reconciliation and evangelism, and General Convention has passed numerous resolutions on the issue, whether supporting federal climate action or pledging to mitigating the church’s own impact on the environment. A 2015 resolution created the Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation to support “ecologically responsible stewardship of church-related properties and buildings.”Through its Office of Governmental Relations and the Episcopal Public Policy Network, the church has advocated for government policies in line with General Convention stances on climate change, and the House of Bishops made environmental justice one of the themes of its September meeting in Alaska.An Episcopal group was in Paris, France, in December 2015 to make a spiritual case for climate action during COP21. At that conference, member countries, including the United States, reached a landmark agreement to set voluntary goals aimed at keeping global warming well below 2 degrees Celsius, which scientists think would be necessary to prevent a spiraling catastrophe of melting glaciers, rising sea levels and related weather extremes.The COP23 summit was intended to build on the Paris agreement, but the agreement’s effectiveness was thrown into doubt this year when President Donald Trump said he would withdraw from the accord rather than hold the U.S. to its pledge to dramatically reduce its greenhouse gas emissions.“We remain open to the possibility of rejoining at a later date under terms more favorable to the American people,” U.S. diplomat Judith Garber said last week at COP23.The Trump administration’s noncommittal stance loomed over COP23, where negotiators began drafting the rules for how the member countries will be expected to report their emissions reductions. Final approval of that framework could come when the next U.N. conference is held in Poland.“If the United States does not keep its commitment, that’s a very poor predictor of the success of the Paris agreement,” Andrus said.He and the rest of the Episcopal delegation were encouraged by the presence in Bonn of what has been called the “We’re Still In” movement. While the Trump administration participated in the U.N.’s intergovernmental negotiations, an alternate, unofficial American delegation in Bonn included U.S. lawmakers and leaders of states and cities, as well as business and faith leaders. They vowed to live up to the United States’ Paris agreement commitments – thus the label “We’re Still In” – even if the federal government won’t.“The end result of this COP23 is being seen as a rather positive and fruitful outcome, all things considered,” Lynnaia Main, the Episcopal Church’s representative to the U.N., said in an email to ENS after attending part of the conference. “Member states demonstrated unparalleled commitment to the Paris agreement, although there is an urgent need to increase their level of ambition.”The plight of various Pacific island nations was a recurring theme at COP23, due to the direct effect that rising ocean levels will have on their ability to survive. Main said the prime minister of Tuvalu had warned that his country would be submerged by 2030 if nothing is done to limit or reverse climate change.Those low-lying countries’ request for an increase in financial assistance, however, was not approved, Andrus said. The result could be dire.“They are losing their lives. Samoa, for instance, has been inhabited for about 3,000 years, and this is their home and it’s deeply threatened by rising water levels,” he said. “This is not distant future or even near future. This is happening.”What could a small group of Episcopalians hope to contribute in a place like Bonn? At COP23, Andrus said the church and other faith communities were welcomed by participants and visitors who were eager to ground their activism in shared values.People of faith are climate activists, Andrus said. “Our spiritual values are the basis from which we act.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Does the Church read the current news of how even Germany cannot meet its goals because of coal? Your resolutions may make some Episcopalians feel better, but it really dismays me. A proposal put forward in 2015 called for skipping ALL fossil fuels and just move to renewables. Wow, you need some knowledge about energy amounts used and future projections. Read the non-partisan Energy Information agency website for statistics. Pray that we can even get this world to move away from coal by natural gas usage on way to a renewable usage that we do not even have the technology for yet. Gosh, God gave us brains to study data to create a better future. Really, as a scientist and a fairly new Episcopalian. I was stunned at such work.

House68 / Design Collective Architects

House68 is a private family residence. The house is designed as a series of modern pavilions connected by large open terraces and water gardens. Each pavilion differs in program and allows for the large home to be sectioned. A guest pavilion, an entertainment pavilion, a living pavilion and a service pavilion; each of which functions independently and may be sectioned and closed off when not in use. This flexibility allows for the house to conform and to adapt to the changing needs of the family. Save this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingThe design brief required that the house is able to adapt to the changing needs of a growing family for the coming years. The actual members of the family that will be staying in on a daily basis will change when their children leave home for studies. Responding to this, the idea of separate components in the form of pavilions is designed into the home, allowing sections to be shut-off when not in use. Basic fundamentals of tropical architecture are adopted from the start. Primary living spaces are designed with openings along the north-south axis to avoid excessive solar gain. Opposing walls open up to allow for effective cross ventilation and airflow through. Deep verandahs and cantilevered roof eaves shade the interior from the afternoon sun whilst a double skin façade incorporating a series of glu-laminated pine louvres provide the shade and transparency needed for the pavilions. Save this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingSave this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingWater gardens and landscaped courtyards provide shade and lowers the ambient temperature around the house. Pathways and terraces form semi-outdoor spaces between the interiors and the gardens that is used as additional living spaces when the need arises. The concept of pavilions is a very common approach to tropical architecture. The fragmented planning allows for permeability and effective air flow through and around the building cooling and refreshing the interior of the house. The planning naturally creates outdoor spaces and courtyards that binds the programs of the pavilion with the outside and activates the in-between spaces more effectively. A semi-enclosed space that bridges internal space to the exterior allowing functions to expand and contract depending on the need of the time. Save this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Creative Clicks, WONG SzeMingThis concept of a 3rd space, in the context of a residential unit, adopts the area left over for the garden and integrates it into the planning for the pavilions. This results in a design where architecture and landscape coexists, sharing its available space with one another and allowing the boundaries to be more fluid. This project explores the idea of a modern tropical home where the architecture is exposed to the natural elements that surrounds it. Light, air, water and garden is allowed to permeate and pass through the house through its courtyards, air wells, ventilated walls, windows and timber screens. The degree of permeability is controlled to an extent that the interior spaces retains its comfort levels and not suffer from excessive heat gain or moisture levels. Tropical architecture is not to shield and protect the users away from the elements but to enhance and bridge the experience and the relationship between them.

Hospital car park expansion inadequate before it even opens

first_imgRELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR University Hospital LimerickAN EXPANSION of the car parking facilities at University Hospital Limerick will not adequately accommodate the needs of staff and visitors.That’s the view of Limerick’s representative on the Regional Health Forum West, Cllr Malachy McCreesh who has been told by the UL Hospital Group that the current 230 public parking spaces at UHL will increase by 170 spaces with the opening of a new underground car park next month.The Sinn Fein City West councillor says that he is not satisfied about the proposed changes to the car parking facilities.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “The expansion to 400 spaces will also see the current 21 public disabled parking spaces increase to 28 spaces. However, a temporary car park with 90 spaces will close a month after the new underground car park is opened as planning permission will expire,” he explained.“Although UHL anticipate it will re-open next November, this is dependent on permanent planning permission being granted.”Cllr McCreesh believes there will not be enough parking spaces available to prevent cars being parked throughout the surrounding area. This is already causing major problems for people in local housing estates from both a safety and traffic control aspect.He went on to say that the additional car parking spaces would not solve the problem, as there will be no increase in the staff car parking spaces available in the new underground car park, except for teams on-call for STEMI (cardiac) patients in the Critical Care Block.“UL Hospital Group need to make further car parking available in the short term to allow staff to get to work without the stress of searching for a parking space. Plans to move the Maternity Hospital to the Dooradoyle campus will create a continued parking nightmare if the current issues are not resolved,” he said.In a statement issued to the Limerick Post, a spokesman for UL Hospitals said that there are 765 staff car parking spaces at University Hospital Limerick (UHL) and no additional staff parking is planned in the immediate future.“There are car parking facilities and off-street parking available adjacent to the hospital, which is also well serviced by public transport to and from Limerick City every 20 minutes.“Currently there are 230 public parking spaces at UHL. This will increase by 170 with the opening of the new underground car park. There are currently 21 public disabled parking spaces available and this will increase to 28 when the new car park opens.“To compensate for the loss of spaces, temporary planning permission for an interim car park for 90 parking spaces was granted by the local authority.”by Alan [email protected] Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twitter Advertisement Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” Email Printcenter_img Previous articleOne-bed homes in demandNext articleDominican nuns eager to be part of Limerick Diocese Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie Facebook WhatsApp TAGSCllr Malachy McCreeshlimerickRegional Health Forum WestSinn Feinuniversity hospital limerick Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival NewsLocal NewsHospital car park expansion inadequate before it even opensBy Alan Jacques – June 18, 2016 1130 Linkedin Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clashlast_img read more

A Bench comprising of Justices Arun Mishra, BR Gavai and Krishna Murari heard the matter and issued notice in the same. While directing for the release of the Petitioners on bail on furnishing personal bond for a sum of Rs. 10,000, Justice Mishra orally observed that the order by way of which they had been sent to custody was “totally impermissible”. Advocate Vrinda Grover, along with Advocates Ratna Appnender and Soutik Banerjee, appeared on behalf of the Petitioners. The Petitioners, Kalyani Badola and Tanmay Nivedita, both working with the NGO Jan Jagran Shakti Sangathan (JISS) have been in custody since 10th July, 2020 for allegedly misbehaving with the Magistrate while attempt to provide support to a gangrape survivor. The two activists, along with the gangrape survivor, had been sent to custody after the Araria magistrate Mustafa Shahi found them in contempt. Consequently, the Chief Judicial Magistrate Court granted bail to the gangrape survivor vide Order dated 17th July. However, the same was denied to the two social activists who remain in judicial custody. The plea, filed by Advocate-on-Record Liz Mathew, contends that the order of the Ld. CJM is unsustainable in law as “it is contrary to settled bail jurisprudence as laid down in catena of judgements of this Hon’ble Court including Sanjay Chandra v. CBI (2012), Gurcharan Singh & Ors. v. State (Delhi Administration) (1978)”. It is further submitted in the plea that the arrest of the Petitioners and their subsequent detention is contrary to the scheme of Section 41A of the Code of Criminal Procedure. Subsequently, a bail petition was filed before the Sessions Court, Araria, Bihar. A Criminal Writ Petition was also filed before the Patna High Court, however, due to an outbreak of COVID-19 across the State, and amongst the High Court staff, proceedings before the HC were suspended. The FIR registered against the Petitioners enlists provisions of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, and sections of the Indian Penal Code, of which only Section 353 is non-bailable. Additionally, it is averred that the FIR is not maintainable in law as there is a statutory bar against police investigating criminal contempt of court. “The inclusion of provisions from the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, in the FIR reveal non-application of mind and arbitrary exercise of authority which unfortunately is writ large over the entire proceedings against the Petitioners. Further, in grave violation of Section 228A IPC, the rape survivor’s identifying details, including her father’s name and full address were made known to and reported by the local press, thereby breaching her fundamental right to dignity and privacy”. The plea submits that the Petitioners have been incarcerated for over twenty days now, and due to the suspension of court proceedings in Bihar as a result of the pandemic, the Petitioners have been constrained to approach the Supreme Court. “The Petitioners also seek to bring to this Hon’ble Court’s notice some very disturbing facts concerning the administration of justice in cases of sexual violence against women, thereby seeking the Hon’ble Court’s intervention to uphold the rule of law and to ensure the dignity of women and an enabling environment for a victim/survivor of sexual violence to access justice”.

Kiwanians Jonathan Cellon, left, and Patrick Reiss visited with Tori Lee-Averett camp director, to let her know that the money was well spent.

By Jaine Treadwell The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Summer Spotlight Camp is held each July and teaches creative movement, dance, storytelling and arts and crafts and provides the opportunity for the children to perform in a showcase before a whole house full of people.Just two weeks ago, the Summer Spotlight Campers presented “Peter Pan” at the Claudia Crosby Theater. Jonathan Cellon was one of many parents who could not wipe away the smiles.“I was grinning from ear to ear,” Cellon said, with a smile that was probably just as wide in remembrance. “Of course, I might be a little biased.” Print Article Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Cellon and fellow Kiwanian Parker Reiss visited with Tori Lee-Averett, Spotlight Camp director, as a follow up to the Troy Kiwanis Club’s donation of several scholarships to the 2017 Summer Spotlight Camp.Reiss, club vice president, said children are at the heart of all that Kiwanis does.“At Troy Kiwanis, we realize the importance of children having opportunities to participate in creative activities like those that are offered at Summer Spotlight Camp,” Reiss said. “We provided $400 in scholarship money to make this camp experience available to children who might not be able to attend otherwise. It was money well spent.”Reiss said Kiwanis is an international organization that touches the lives of children around the world.“By providing scholarships for Summer Spotlight, we are touching the lives of children here at home,” he said.Lee-Averett expressed appreciation to the Troy Kiwanis Club for the generous scholarship donation.The Summer Spotlight Camp has been providing creative drama experiences for children for nine years. For three years, the Troy Kiwanis Club has provided funding for camp scholarships.“The scholarship are awarded through an application process,” Lee-Averett said. “The kids who receive the scholarships are very appreciative of the opportunity to participate in a creative drama camp. There are many kids who have interests in theater, dance, music and the arts. This is camp gives them the opportunity to explore their interests and to be with other kids who share the same interests. It’s a chance for them to express themselves in a fun and creative way and to, pretend – yes, ‘to play like.’” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Cellon’s daughters were among the 100 plus kids ages 4 to 13 who performed in “Peter Pan.”“It was a wonderful performance,” he said. “All the kids were great and you could tell they were all having a good time. It was amazing to me that the camp staff did such a remarkable job with so many kids and such a wide age range.”Cellon said at home, his daughters were more interested in and excited about what they were doing at camp than they were at the big, cheesy pizza before them.“They just wanted to talk, to tell everything about the camp,” he said. “It was a great experience, an opportunity that every child should have.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Sponsored Content You Might Like HOSPITAL HOTEL: Barron opens new practice to provide veterinary care, boarding After 19 years as a veterinarian, Steve Barron says it is as important to treat the people with care and… read more Latest Storieslast_img read more

Suspected ‘Golden State Killer’ due in court in front of socially-distanced victims

first_imgRandy Pench/Sacramento Bee/Tribune News Service via Getty ImagesBy EMILY SHAPIRO, ABC News(SACRAMENTO, Calif.) — Joseph DeAngelo, the man suspected of being the notorious Golden State Killer, will appear before a state judge on Monday. But rather than be in a courtroom, he’ll be in a California State University–Sacramento ballroom, standing before socially-distanced victims and family members.With over 150 victims and relatives expected to attend, prosecutors sought a room that would be large enough to accommodate them and promote social distancing, The Sacramento Bee reported. The ballroom can hold 2,000 people.DeAngelo is expected to take a plea deal to avoid the death penalty, victims’ relatives told ABC News.DeAngelo, now 74 years old, is accused of committing 13 murders as well as multiple rapes and burglaries in the 1970s and 80s, terrorizing communities from Northern to Southern California.DeAngelo, a former police officer, eluded law enforcement for decades, until he was arrested in Sacramento County in April 2018.DeAngelo became the first public arrest obtained through genetic genealogy, a new technique that takes the DNA of an unknown suspect left behind at a crime scene and identifies him or her by tracing a family tree through his or her family members, who voluntarily submit their DNA to public genealogy databases.This allows police to create a much larger family tree than using law enforcement databases, such as the Combined DNA Index System, aka CODIS, in which an exact match is usually needed.Since DeAngelo’s arrest, over 150 suspects have been identified through genetic genealogy.
