De La Rue rejected the approach from its French rival in December. De La Rue said in July there had been production problems at one of its paper factories. As a result, De La Rue has been excluded from contract wins with India in the near future.RBI is thought to be the customer which De La Rue said in November it could lose following problems with faulty banknote paper.A recent tender by India’s finance ministry for the supply of currency paper prompted predator Oberthur on Tuesday to ask De La Rue to provide clarity on its prospects of winning future business with RBI.

Video & Feature – Iona: A Celtic Pilgrimage

first_imgVideo & Feature – Iona: A Celtic Pilgrimage Celtic Christianity celebrates 1,450th anniversary of Columba’s Iona May 8, 2013 at 8:28 pm This video just strengthen my desire to go to Iona. I have been interested in Celtic Christianity for many years. Our parish uses many pieces of music from the Community and several parishioners have been to Iona on pilgrimage. Rector Belleville, IL Ecumenical & Interreligious, Nancy Brantingham says: The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Paul Rider says: Ann Fontaine says: Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Featured Jobs & Calls Press Release Service May 6, 2013 at 12:25 pm The boat skipper who took us to Fingal’s Cave on Staffa told us Columba made all the women residents of Iona move to a nearby island so his monks would not have to look at them. Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Jo Ann Ford says: May 6, 2013 at 4:24 pm I’m making my fourth trip to Iona this summer, staying at Bishop’s House for the third time. Thrilled to be the chaplain there for the week. What a wonderful, holy place is this Island! Of you go, be sure to go on the pilgrimage with the Iona Community. They occur each week and the community welcomes pilgrims from all over. Just be sure to bring good boots and waterproofs…. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis [Episcopal News Service] The ancient Celts described Iona as a “thin place,” where the veil between heaven and earth is lifted, and where one might glimpse the divine.For centuries pilgrims have traveled to this small island off the West coast of Scotland, leaving behind their chaotic lives to rest, reflect and walk in the footsteps of St. Columba, the Irish missionary who founded a monastery on Iona in 563 AD.Columba was forced into exile allegedly following a dispute concerning the ownership of a psalter he’d copied in his home county of Donegal. His subsequent missionary work is credited with the spread of Christianity throughout the British Isles.May 2013 marks the 1,450th anniversary of Columba’s arrival on Iona. His feast day is celebrated on June 9 throughout the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.The Rev. Nancy Brantingham, a priest from the Episcopal Diocese of Minnesota and a long-time student of Celtic Christianity, visited Iona for the first time in October 2012.“Columba had a role here, situated at the monastery with his monks, teaching them and then sending them out two by two, and look what happened,” said Brantingham, who was leading a group of pilgrims mainly from her home diocese. “Was the world ready to hear from him, and are they ready to hear from us yet, I don’t know. But numbers certainly aren’t the only thing that matter when it comes to getting the word out … touching people’s hearts.”Group members began the week discussing why they’d taken this two-day journey over land, air and sea to the island and if they’d brought any questions with them.For Brantingham, Columba “is a great patron because he loved writing, had gifts for teaching, loved to study, was a good pastor. I hope I am, too. So I think that’s why I came.”The Rev. JoAnn Ford said she had come with many questions about who she was as a retired parish priest “and where do I go from here, what do I do?”But she arrived “being open,” she said. “Not with any need to find an answer.”“How do I know what is God’s will?” asked Maren Mahowald. “How do I recognize it? How do I know if I’m responding? That’s why I’m here.”Although the pilgrims had brought many personal questions, they also acknowledged the importance of community along such a journey.Athene Westergaard noted that, “when traveling in a community that you trust, it’s the community that supports you, which is what the faith is all about. The faith is not a lonely experience.”Bishop Kevin Pearson of the Scottish Episcopal Church’s Diocese of Argyll & the Isles, under whose jurisdiction Iona falls, also visited the island in October and joined the Minnesota group for part of its pilgrimage.A pilgrimage “helps you journey within,” Pearson told ENS while walking with other pilgrims around the island. “[It] brings together the spiritual, interior world and a world that’s hard-and-fast. So the actual physical exercise is a part of the spiritual exercise as well, and you’re drawn into God’s life almost whether you want to go or not.”The Scottish Episcopal Church’s St. Columba’s Chapel and the adjacent Bishop’s House have served as a place of prayer and study for pilgrims to Iona since 1894.“People are increasingly drawn to journeying and to making pilgrimages, whether they call them pilgrimages or not, to holy places, to places that for centuries have meant a lot to people,” Pearson said. “And, basically, they’re journeying within themselves; they’re searching for God.”One of the highlights of visiting Iona is connecting with the Iona Community, an ecumenical group formed in 1938. Under the leadership of its founder George MacLeod, the community set out to rebuild parts of the medieval Iona Abbey.Today, the community has a strong commitment to peace and justice issues and offers weekly pilgrimages around the island, stopping at places of historical or spiritual significance and reflecting on the journey along the way.Rebuilding the abbey “was to be a symbol of the need for the church to re-engage with ordinary folk and a concern for the need to rebuild community,” the Rev. Peter MacDonald, (Presbyterian) Church of Scotland priest and leader of the Iona Community, told ENS during an interview inside the abbey.Julie Hooper, one of the Minnesota pilgrims, has visited Iona four times. She keeps returning, she said, because “there is something that settles the soul here.“It’s very peaceful and nurturing, and I don’t think it matters what your religious or spiritual inclination is. I think there are a lot of people who come here who aren’t necessarily Christian, but they come because they feel that nurturing and peacefulness here.”Making her first visit to Iona, Dorothy Ramsdell of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada said that she felt an energy making it “possible to just be loving. It is truly a model of living together with the land in community.”The pilgrims found peace and tranquility everywhere on Iona: in the organic gardens that feed the travelers, in the nature and the wildlife, in the ancient stones and monuments, and in the memories of those who’ve gone before. But mostly, they observed how that peace is found in the community that is formed during any visit or pilgrimage to the island. It’s a reminder of how Columba lived in community with his fellow monks who helped to evangelize the British Isles and engrave on it the legacy of Celtic Christianity.Reflecting on Columba’s influence, MacDonald said: “It could be argued that the Columban mission to Scotland and further afield actually helped form Scotland as a nation state. Columba was often engaging with the chiefs of various tribes and peoples around here, and their reasons for inviting the Columban monks to go there was as much political as spiritual. So I think we see that integration, that wholeness, of Columba and the Celts as something that we try to live out today.”“The ancients knew about the value of pilgrimage as a metaphor for life’s journey, and I think people today recognize that as a spiritual discipline,” said MacDonald.For many pilgrims new beginnings and possibilities open up after visiting Iona.“You never get to go home from pilgrimage empty-handed,” Brantingham told ENS. “One of the beautiful things about pilgrimage is that you go as a solitary traveler, but then the community begins to form around the experience of being vulnerable, of being afraid, of having questions about where God is right now in our lives, how God is at work and what’s next.“In some sense, the pilgrimage never really ends,” she added. “To be sure, we will go our separate ways, but we are also bound now to one another forever by the stories, experiences, and memories we shared; by the awareness that however far we are from one another in the physical world, we are, nonetheless, still together on the journey that leads to knowing and loving God more deeply. And everything about the experience, from the first awareness of being called to make the trip to the homecoming at journey’s end, holds potential insight and wisdom we can draw on for the rest of our lives.”— Matthew Davies is an Episcopal News Service editor and reporter. dee renner says: May 6, 2013 at 4:41 pm The Iona Community is a great place to volunteer. Hard work but great people and environment. I spent three months there two years ago. If you’re looking for a place to be in transition, consider this spot. CAROLINE ROPER-DEYO says: May 6, 2013 at 4:10 pm And while Iona is indeed one of those ‘thin places,’ it’s where I learned that there is never bad weather only wrong clothing. Course Director Jerusalem, Israel May 16, 2013 at 9:53 am We did have a lovely, lovely experience. I would go back in a heartbeat. Zam, how wonderful to see you “here” (online)! You and others in the Iona Community were so much a part of the blessing we experienced on Iona. To those of you about to make the trip, blessings and peace. You’ll be in my prayers. Joseph Lane says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Rector Hopkinsville, KY May 8, 2013 at 12:55 am The video was wonderful. Thank you Matt. I hope to go one day. Although I’ve never been there it feels like home. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem May 9, 2013 at 4:07 pm I’ve been there three times. Scotland is the land of my heritage. Iona is the soul of Scotland. It is a place where the creative “wind (Spirit) of God” blows. Last time I was there the wind just about literally blew me off of Dun I , the highest point of Iona. I planted a rock from my island (San Juan Island) in the cairn and took a wee rock from Iona, which I carry in my pocket as a talisman. But, then, all of creation is a magical talisman according to the Celts. Iona is truly a “thin place”…if one lets it be. Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Youth Minister Lorton, VA Zam Walker says: Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC May 7, 2013 at 11:25 am I took a group of J2A teens in 2011 to Iona. We stayed in the Hostel at the end of the island. It was one of the best pilgrimages that I have taken. On our way to Iona we stayed in Oban for a few nights. Bishop Kevin was the preacher at the cathedral that Sunday. He was absolutely lovely and really connected with the teens.

It’s a magical, holy, truly thin place that calls one back and back. I can’t get enough, and I long to return. As before, I will plan to stay no less than three nights–it’s essential to abide.

Featured Events Loraine Tuenge says: July 22, 2014 at 6:36 pm My partner and I found ourselves on Iona in 1999 while traveling around Scotland. We missed the last ferry of the night and got “stuck” on the island with little money. We decided to sleep under the stars in the Nunnery ruins. A kind person at the pub told us that if we got cold, the Abbey is always open and we could sleep there, which is what we did halfway through the night. I will never forget waking up to sunlight streaming through the windows and music playing for the morning service! 5 years later, we returned and were married by a kind Presbyterian Pastor, Syd Graham, in the Nunnery. It wasn’t a legal marriage (we did that back at home), but it was an unforgettable ceremony of spiritual love and beauty. We will surely be back one day with our two kids, one of whom bears the name of “Iona” as her middle name.

We were fortunate enough to be able to take that Tuesday pilgrimage around the island with J. Philip Newell and Ali as the leaders, and hear them at the Abbey. It was my 9th time on the island, and by far the very best experience… even though the weather was cold and wet. The hospitality was warm and inviting.

Also in Adomnan’s ‘Life of Columba’ written only 100 years after the death of Columba, there are stories of Columba’s concern for men and women in various forms (including relief of pain in childbirth and for a couple to have a good sex-life….)(BTW there are no vines on the 1200 year old St Martin’s cross – they are snakes!)It was lovely to see this film. I am the one in the cyclamen pink waterproof jacket and I was the back-marker on the pilgrimage, co-leading it with Becki.

Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear A transport app that can save you time and moneyWouldn’t you love to take an expert traveler with you on every trip? Someone who would know exactly what to do in every situation? Someone who could get you where you needed to be as quickly as possible? Well, you can’t always choose who your travel partners are, but you can make sure you’re aware of the latest travel tips and tricks.Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, there’s a lot of opportunity for stress. Flying, staying in hotels and navigating your destination can all be a hassle. Make jet-setting a little easier with this insider knowledge:Complete a before-you-go checklistA few days in advance, make a checklist of all the important to-do items you’ll need to accomplish before you embark on your travels. This list should include locating your passport and necessary documents, confirming reservations, calling your bank and credit card companies to let them know where you’ll be, and tending to your household needs. Your trip will be off to a seamless start when you ensure everything is taken care of from the get-go.Always carry-on if you canTake advantage of the ability to carry a smaller suitcase on the plane with you. Invest in a reliable, carry-on sized roller bag that will work no matter what kind of trip you’re taking. This not only drives you to pack efficiently, it also saves you the hassle of ever having to check a bag.Innovate on your transportationWhen you finally arrive at your destination, the last thing you want to do is figure out how to get from A to B, especially at the airport. These days, smartphones make getting a ride more convenient than ever. The ridesharing app Lyft aims to eliminate traffic congestion and give people safe, easy and affordable transit alternatives for getting around. “I’ve used Lyft during all my layovers for the past two years,” says Las Vegas flight attendant, Cheryl Ross. “It’s great for airport travel as well as a safe solution to drinking and driving when you’re out at night. The drivers are people from the community and they often make the best tour guides.” Best of all, payment is done directly through the app, so no need to worry about carrying cash. If you’re a new user, you can redeem $20 off your first ride with the code FLYLYFT20.Speak up about special occasionsWhen staying in a hotel, make sure to mention if you’re celebrating a special occasion at the front desk. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or honeymoon, the hotel might just upgrade your accommodations. Additionally, if you’re staying at a larger chain hotel, it never hurts to join their free loyalty program. If they know you’re a member, you could receive extra perks like early check in and late check out.Act like a local to stay safeWhen you’re in an unfamiliar city, it’s always important to take extra safety precautions. However, one of the best ways to make sure you don’t become a target is to maintain a confident attitude. It’s often the times when people are unsure, lost or stressed out when they run into trouble while traveling. Remain calm, cool and collected and always walk like you know where you are, even if you don’t.Follow these tips and you’ll be telling stories from your adventurous travels, instead of waiting in line and calling around to find your lost luggage.

This house takes the typical paths of domestic movement and manipulates them to weave the exterior landscape and site into the house while enhancing natural airflows and views. An interest in the continuity of landscape, circulation, and the sequential movement through space has lead to an exploration of continuous spatial relationships in this residence. Smooth, sinuous surfaces delineate zones of space while maximizing the site’s topography, views, and circulation. Volumes are differentiated through a slicing of surfaces and materials, emphasizing the horizontal while allowing a multiplicity of spatial conditions to develop through the interaction of these forms, surfaces and volumes.  These spatial intersections accumulate the more static elements of the house, while breaking down edges between inside and outside, allowing a more engaging relationship between the land and internal logics of the house. Save this picture!© Benny ChanOn the top of Point Dume in Malibu, the residence is accessed from below by a driveway, while an existing retaining wall bisects the site and moves along the geometry of an existing knoll. The geometric morphologies of the residence frame panoramic views of the ocean, as these views inform the shifts in geometry that produce the “S” shape of the plan. The sinuous sequence from the entry to the living space and landscape beyond echoes the shoreline below, creating a vacillation among multiple viewpoints. Movement in the house bends from the entry to the living area and again towards the pool. Save this picture!© Benny ChanEntry occurs through a gap between the volumes of the garage and the guest bedroom of the house. One descends into a narrow curving vertical hall below two clerestory windows that twists towards the open horizontal living space arriving at a framed panoramic view of the ocean. This fluid hallway becomes the nexus of the residence, where movement between the public and private areas of the home is aggregated and intertwined in the curved hallway space. The path of the house extends through the living area under an eco-resin, custom fabricated, light box and extends to an outdoor terrace that curves around to the lap pool and a new view towards the Santa Monica coastline beyond. The open living area has eleven-foot ceilings where kitchen, dining and living areas have a loft like feel. The living area literally extends to the exterior with two large sliding doors that create an opening to the outside that is eleven foot by twenty-two foot.  An over-scaled system of horizontal louvers extends along this edge of the residence to control light, incorporate library shelving and become the railing system for the master bedroom terrace above.  The master bedroom is shifted back both to create a terrace and to re-orient views of the coastline towards the city lights.

In the chaos of life today a home needs to be a place of refuge, a solitude for the homeowners to retreat to.

The vault, in its many permutations, is one of the most common archetypes of ancient Roman architecture, characterized by its powerful modulation of light and its sense of lightness.Save this picture!Axo diagramSave this picture!SectionIn adopting this typology into a domestic space, the architects evolved the vault from its primary form, puncturing, cutting, and peeling it into new geometries that help to distribute light and air into key locations, respond to program organization, demarcating each with a different atmosphere, and create a sectional continuity throughout the house. In carrying sacred content from the homeowner’s past into the present they are transported into another time and place, full of stories, meaning, and memories that become their refuge.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyThe vault geometry extends the length of the lot, informing a relationship between the façade and the interior. From the exterior, the brick vault is a subtraction from the otherwise monolithic brick frontage. This monolithic façade is created through a focus on the rich materiality of the brick coursing, and the isolated dormer which mirrors the proportions of the neighboring house. The brickwork that covers the façade and wraps the ceiling and walls of the carport plays into Toronto’s history of masonry detailing. The tradition of brick in Toronto’s residential fabric dates back to the 19th century when Toronto’s stock of Victorian houses was built. In these houses, ornamental detail presents itself in single isolated moments of brick coursing located above apertures, along with corners, and at cornices.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyThe architects took this singular moment of ornamentation and blew it up. The front of the home is reduced to a monolithic façade – where single repetitive material ornamentation, an adaptation of the Flemish-bond, becomes an even but textured brickfield placing emphasis on the vaulted profile. This field of patterning emphasizes a play of light and shadow and picks up on seasonal changes. In the summer, the protrusions texture the façade with stark shadows, and in the winter the texture transforms through bricks creating shelves for the snow to fall on.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyAs a retired couple intending to age in place, it was essential that they had access to parking on site. Wanting to refrain from the suburban folly of a garage-fronted street, the decision to create a carport shaped the formal organization of the entire project. The integrated carport carves the front façade, creating a processional entryway reminiscent of the portico; an architectural feature found in roman architecture which covers and extends from the entrance often as a vault or colonnade.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyVaulted porches are also a prevalent form in Toronto’s Victorian housing stock. Toronto’s residential streets are often punctuated by front porches (rather than garages) to create a transitional space between the street and the home. In the case of Pacific Residence, the carved carport creates an inverted porch, which creates an introverted presence on the street. A lightwell that cuts through the height of the building is placed at the depth of the carport, washing the deep space with light, pulling visitors towards the entry. This armored space is turned inward and perceived as private, creating an intimate entry procession.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographySave this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyTo emphasize the project’s geometric simplicity, all circulation, services, and entry conditions are tucked into a linear bar that runs adjacent to the vault. Upon entering the house, visitors begin in a compressed service ‘bar’, which then opens into the ground floor’s expansive and airy living spaces. Throughout the length of the ground floor, the barrel vault’s persistent geometry connects these living spaces, accentuating the client’s desire for connectivity in food preparation, eating, and socializing.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyWhile the barrel vault brings these spaces together, moments of articulation and relief are found through tangential peels and cuts in the vaulted ceiling. The vault remains intact in the dining room, is cut at the length of the kitchen, becomes intact again in the living room, and then unfolds and peels into the backyard. This spatially delineates connected spaces, while also providing natural light to flood into the deep and narrow lot. Situated in the middle of a long floorplan, the kitchen opens and is flooded with natural light from a skylight above.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyWhile the ground floor remains unimpeded and connected, the second floor is sliced into rooms connected by bridges. This allows for rooms to be stacked in a narrow lot with natural daylight reaching each room and the ground floor below. On this floor, the services of the laundry room, bathroom, and stairs are also tucked into the ‘bar’, while the bedroom, study, and master suite are stacked from the front to the back of the house. The slice between the bedroom and study allows both rooms to share natural daylight brought in from the lightwell and the façade’s dormer window. The master suite is lit from both the house’s back façade and the skylight above the kitchen.Save this picture!© Doublespace PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in Kawasaki / Koyori + Atelier SaltSelected ProjectsFunction Walls / Lookofsky ArchitectureSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeBatay-Csorba ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTorontoOn FacebookCanadaPublished on March 09, 2021Cite: “High Park Residence / Batay-Csorba Architects” 08 Mar 2021.

Chilean officers charged in 1973 murder of Victor Jara

first_imgChilean artist, activist Victor Jara.On the morning of Sept. 12, 1973, Victor Jara, the internationally acclaimed folk singer/writer, theater director, activist and musician, was taken along with thousands of prisoners to the Chile Stadium in Santiago, Chile, where he was repeatedly beaten and tortured. The bones in his hands were broken, as were his ribs.Fellow political prisoners testified that his captors mockingly suggested that he play guitar for them as he lay on the ground. Defiantly, Jara sang part of “Venceremos” (“We Will Win”), a song supporting the people’s movement in Chile. After further beatings, he was machine-gunned on Sept. 16, his body dumped on a road on the outskirts of Santiago. Forty-four bullets were found in his body.On Dec. 27, eight retired Chilean army officers were formally charged with Jara’s murder.Judge Miguel Vásquez charged two of the former officers, Hugo Sánchez and Pedro Barrientos, with committing the murder and six others as accomplices. Sánchez, a lieutenant colonel, was second in command at Chile Stadium. Barrientos, who was second in command at the infamous National Stadium, currently lives in Deltona, Fla., a city southwest of Daytona Beach. All were arrested except for Barrientos.Four of the eight had taken courses at the infamous School of the Americas, a combat training school for Latin American soldiers located at Fort Benning, Ga. In 2001, it was renamed the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation (WHINSEC), but retained its primary character and objectives.Since 1946, the SOA has trained more than 64,000 Latin American soldiers in counterinsurgency techniques, commando and psychological warfare, military intelligence and interrogation tactics. These graduates have consistently used their skills to wage war against their own people.Among those whom SOA graduates arrest, beat and torture are educators, union organizers, religious workers, student leaders and others who work for the rights of the poor. The SOA has left such a trail of blood and suffering that it has been dubbed the “School of the Assassins.”The 1973 coup, which killed tens of thousands of Chileans, was carried out with the full support of the U.S. government. President Richard Nixon and Secretary of State Henry Kissinger promised the Chilean officers U.S. backing and provided it.Among the top beneficiaries of the coup and the dictatorship that followed were giant multinational corporations such as Anaconda Copper. The companies were furious that Chilean President Salvador Allende’s Popular Unity government had nationalized many large foreign-owned enterprises.It remains to be seen whether or not Kissinger and other U.S. war criminals and corporations will ever be brought to justice for their crimes. A start could be made by closing the School of the Americas, deporting Pedro Barrientos to face justice in Chile, freeing the Cuban Five U.S. political prisoners, and putting an end to the illegal blockades and interventions against Cuba, Venezuela and other progressive governments and movements in Latin America.¡Victor Jara, Presente!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
