The offering attracted attention as it will circumvent rules requiring firms with more than 500 investors to publish their financial results. The Facebook offer makes use of a “special use investment vehicle” which many individuals can buy into but only counts as a single shareholder.Clients in the UK, mainland Europe and Asia have been alerted to the offer, which will value the social network at $50bn. center_img whatsapp whatsapp Monday 17 January 2011 9:32 pm by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeStyleVamp10+ Normal People Who Astonishingly Look Like CelebsStyleVampAmoMediaMan Leaves Wife For Her Sister, Her Revenge Is BrilliantAmoMediaMold Removal | Search AdsBathroom Mold Removal Tips That Might Surprise Most AmericansMold Removal | Search Adswomengetfreebies.comGet free samples sent to your home. 100% free.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Villanova, Pennsylvania] The Episcopal Church and the world need young people’s “wisdom and experience.” And the nearly 800 youth attending the 2014 Episcopal Youth Event heard a call to action July 10 during the EYE14 Opening Eucharist.“Episcopal Youth, it’s time for you to bring it,” the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, canon for missional vitality in the Diocese of Long Island, tells the Opening Eucharist at the 2014 Episcopal Youth Event, meeting July 9-13 on the campus of Villanova University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service“We’ve got some great youth programs in the Episcopal Church, where adults teach and form young people [but] I think it’s time for some reverse mentoring,” the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, canon for missional vitality in the Diocese of Long Island, said during her sermon. “We elders can nurture and teach, but frankly we could use your wisdom and experience on the mission frontier.”“We need you to show us what fish and loaves you’ve got in your backpack,” she said, in a reference to the day’s Gospel reading about the feeding of the 5,000.“Yes?” she asked, turning to address the 43 bishops, including Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, House of Deputies president and the Eucharist’s presider, seated behind her on the dais. The response was enthusiastic nodding all around.“Episcopal Youth, it’s time for you to bring it,” said Spellers, turning back to the congregation.“We need you to tell us what it’s like to live in a topsy-turvy world where people connect and learn and love across every kind of boundary,” she said. “We need you to help us navigate a confusing world where Christianity isn’t on top.”Video and the text of Spellers’ sermon is here.The rousing service featured Live Hymnal, whose music had everyone from bishops to young people singing harmony, swaying, clapping, dancing (at one point there was even a conga line weaving along the floor of the sports arena where the Eucharist was celebrated) and waving their lighted smartphones aloft. The entrance rite included representatives from each attending diocese bearing handmade diocesan EYE banners.Representatives of each of the 86 Episcopal Church dioceses that sent people to the July 9-13 process into the EYE14 Opening Eucharist July 10 at the sports arena on the campus of Villanova University near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceSome 786 youth in grades 9-12 during the 2013-2014 academic year and 263 adult leaders began gathering July 9 here on the campus of Villanova University near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, for EYE14, which runs until July 13. The triennial gathering is the second largest in the Episcopal Church after General Convention.They will spend time attempting to discern how the Holy Spirit has marked them for mission and how they might engage in the work of the Anglican Communion’s Five Marks of Mission, which have been described as a practical and memorable checklist for mission work.The Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the Episcopal Church House of Deputies, presides at the Episcopal Youth Event 2014 Opening Eucharist July 10 at the sports arena on the campus of Villanova University near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceSpellers summoned them in their discernment to the roles of evangelist and missionary. She told the congregation about her spending her youth in Knoxville, Tennessee, “running from the Christians” who epitomized “intolerance … hellfire and judgment.”“God, I wish I’d known about young people like you and a church like this,” said Spellers, who was baptized at 28. “I wish somebody had engaged me in genuine conversation about God, not to tell me all the answers or save me from hell, but so we could wonder and wrestle and love God and love God’s world.“On behalf of all the young people wandering today” Spellers called on the young people to “share the story of the God you have met in this church. Find your voice, feel that love, and then spread it around.”She told them not to wait for other, older church leaders. “You can bear Christ’s healing. You can speak his truth. You can share his love,” she said. “Your peers need it from you. Your church needs it from you.”Members of EYE14 come from 86 dioceses of the Episcopal Church, including international members from the dioceses of the Dominican Republic, Honduras and Taiwan will spend their days here immersed in music, Scripture, worship and fellowship.“May the fun and the prayer and the songs and the community you share in these days be like rocket fuel in your tank, propelling you out to be the missionaries you are,” Spellers said in what she called her commissioning of the congregation. “Share good news with the communities around you. Teach and lead this lovely old Episcopal Church into places that terrify us.”EYE14’s shape and scopeDuring the rest of July 10, participants will spend time in the first two of four workshop sessions (the final two sessions are set for July 13). Topics range from a chance to “grill the presiding bishop” to Christian Tai Chi, forgiveness, ways to challenge domestic poverty, “confirmation in the 21st Century,” “rooted but relevant liturgy,” how to share one’s faith story and “Irish Dancing: Identity and Culture in Movement.”July 11 is Philadelphia Pilgrimage day when EYE fans out in groups all over the Philadelphia area to learn about the current ministry of the Episcopal Church in city and get a glimpse of the history of the Episcopal Church in what might be called its birthplace (those who became known as Episcopalians gathered for the first time in General Convention at Christ Church in Philadelphia in 1785).Then it is back to the present at another iconic Philly venue for an iconic meal: A Philly cheesesteak picnic on the Rocky Steps of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.EYE returns to Villanova for “Celebration of Diversity and Call to Equality: A Service of Evening Prayer” led by Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who will also preach.The next day, July 12, the Rev. Becca Stevens, founder of the Community Magdalene’s Thistle Farms, will lead a plenary gathering, followed by two more workshop sessions. That evening Diocese of North Carolina Bishop Michael Curry will preach and Jefferts Schori will preside at the event’s closing Eucharist, “Sent by the Spirit.”Following EYE14, more than 300 are staying over in Philadelphia to engage mission in the field through 3 Days of Urban Mission. The majority of 3 Days of Urban Mission volunteers will lodge at the University of Pennsylvania in inner-city Philadelphia. About 60 additional volunteers will be housed at the Episcopal Mission Center, managed by the Diocese of Pennsylvania. A map of the mission sites is here.The youth of the Episcopal Church have been gathering nearly every three years since the early 1980s. While preparing for the third EYE in July 1987 in San Antonio, Texas, the Diocesan Press Service, ENS’ predecessor, reported that “those involved in the two previous events have said that if the past is indication, ‘the energy, excitement and pure Christian Joy experienced at this gathering will inspire individuals and enliven parishes back home for a long time to come.’” The same could no doubt be said for every EYE gathering since up to and including the 2014 event.Keeping an eye on EYEPeople who are not on the Villanova campus can follow the progress of EYE14 live streaming of these sessions:Plenary – July 10 at 7:30 p.m.; the EYE14 Mission Planning TeamEvening Prayer – July 11 at 8:30 p.m. (approximate); Jefferts Schori preaching and officiatingMorning Plenary –July 12 at 9:30 a.m.; the Rev.

Barbarism at your gates – who will end the torment of Mexico’s journalists?

first_img to go further MexicoAmericas May 2, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Barbarism at your gates – who will end the torment of Mexico’s journalists? Organisation News Help by sharing this information MexicoAmericas Open letter to U.S. President Barack ObamaDear President Obama,Your two-day official visit to Mexico this week coincides with World Press Freedom Day. Reporters Without Borders, an international non-governmental organization (NGO) that defends freedom of information, hopes the visit will result in a firm commitment by you to help restore the rule of law and civil liberties in this country.Last Sunday, hundreds of journalists and human rights defenders staged marches in 14 Mexican states at the request of many NGOs, including ours, to demand an end to the barbarity that targets them, and an end to impunity for those responsible for the barbarityThe date chosen, 28 April, was the first anniversary of the murder of Regina Martínez, the newsweekly Proceso’s correspondent in the eastern state of Veracruz. Just four days before the marches, the dismembered body of Daniel Martínez Bazaldúa, a photographer for the newspaper Vanguardia, was found in the northern state of Coahuila. Another journalist, Gerardo Blanquet of the Radio Grande group, went missing in Coahuila on 30 April.A law approved by the Mexican congress on 25 April, making it easier for crimes against freedom of information to be addressed by the federal authorities, is a step forward but is not enough. A federal protection mechanism which was set up last October and which has so far been applied to 48 people, including 13 journalists, is also praiseworthy in principle but again is far from sufficient.In the past 10 years, Mexico has become the western hemisphere’s most dangerous country for journalists, with 86 killed and 18 missing. They include Brad Will, a U.S. cameraman working for the Indymedia agency, who was gunned down in Oaxaca on 27 October 2006. Justice has not been properly rendered in any of these cases.The continuing terror and impunity has forced many journalists, bloggers and civil society activists to go into hiding, flee the region where they live and sometimes flee the country with the help of NGOs such as ours.When Reporters Without Borders visited Mexico in March, it managed to obtain a three-month extension to the protection being provided to Anabel Hernández, an investigative journalist who is a recognized authority on drug trafficking.But these efforts fall far short of the needs of the situation, the scale and complexity of which Mexico’s leading partner countries are taking too long to recognize. And the NGOs themselves are not immune to threats. Article 19 Mexico was recently targeted.The collapse of the rule of law in Mexico directly concerns the United States. It affects the safety and work of U.S. journalists, who are often exposed to the same dangers as their Mexican colleagues. It forces more and more Mexican journalists and bloggers to flee to the United States. Finally, and above all, it reflects the failure of policies meant to combat drug trafficking and the reign of the cartels.These misfortunes are part of a horrendous national tragedy that has been fueled by a six-year-old federal offensive against drug-trafficking with a toll of 80,000 dead – an offensive that has achieved none of its declared goals. Eighty per cent of the drugs transiting through Mexico end up in the United States while 80 per cent of the arms circulating in Mexico come from the United States.In the light of this situation, we would like to put three recommendations to the U.S. federal government. We urge it to:- Make it easier for Mexican journalists, bloggers and human rights defenders to obtain asylum in the United States.- Use its influence within the Organization of American States, together with other governments, so that pressure is put on Mexico to render justice in the cases of journalists who have been murdered or who have disappeared.- Press the Mexican federal government to obtain tangible results in the investigation into U.S. cameraman Brad Will’s murder, a case that is typical of the way officials are often complicit in violations of freedom of information in Mexico.We thank you in advance for the attention you give to this letter.Sincerely,Christophe DeloireReporters Without Borders secretary-general Follow the news on Mexico April 28, 2021 Find out more RSF_en center_img 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies May 5, 2021 Find out more NSO Group hasn’t kept its promises on human rights, RSF and other NGOs say May 13, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts News News Reports Reporter murdered in northwestern Mexico’s Sonora statelast_img read more

Homeless groups say not enough done to address housing crisis

first_img LOCAL homeless organisations the Mid West Simon Community and Novas Initiatives say that Budget 2016 does not go far enough to address the current homeless crisis.While both groups welcomed the increase in funding for homeless services, they are disappointed at the omission of rent control measures from Tuesday’s budget.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Jackie Bonfield, general nanager of the Mid West Simon Community said: “We are deeply disappointed that there will not be an announcement of introduction of rent certainty measures today. These measures are essential in light of rapidly increasing market rents to offer tenants greater security of tenure.“That these proposals have been blocked at a time when there is such limited social housing supply is appalling. Without such measures people will continue to find rents unaffordable and will continue to be pushed over the edge into homelessness. Rent certainty would provide the tenant and the landlord with certainty and security with tenancies.”Ms Bonfield was also critical of the government’s failure to increase rent supplement rates.“Our Locked Out report (August 2015) showed that 92 per cent of properties on the market are outside of the reach of people on state rent support. If people cannot afford growing markets rents with the limited state support provided we will continue to see people becoming homelessness and people prevented from leaving homelessness behind. It is almost impossible to find accommodation that falls within the supplement limits.”She also revealed that in the Mid West region this week, there were only nine available properties within the rent supplement limit – one in Clare, four in Limerick and four in Tipperary.A spokesperson for Novas Initiatives welcomed the government’s commitment of €17 million to emergency accommodation and to the social housing construction programme.However they added that it “does little to stem the tide of homelessness right now”.“Without an increase in rent caps and without rent certainty families will continue to be forced into homelessness with little hope of securing family accommodation in the short-term,” added that spokesperson.Referring to the news that NAMA is to provide more than 20,000 new houses over the next five year, Ms Bonfield said: “We have continuously expressed concern in relation to social housing provision that there is just too little happening at far too slow a pace. We cannot tell the men, women and children using our services, trapped in emergency accommodation and people sleeping on our streets at night to wait two years before they will have a home of their own. Local Authorities need to get back into the core business of building and delivering social housing to those who need it most.” Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live TAGSBudget 2016homelessnesslimerickMid West Simon CommunityNovas Initiatives WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Twitter Facebook RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Previous articleThe Specks from Glasses IslandNext articleThe world looks different from above John Keoghhttp://www.limerickpost.ie Linkedincenter_img Print WhatsApp Email Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Limerick Artist ‘Willzee’ releases new Music Video – “A Dream of Peace” NewsHomeless groups say not enough done to address housing crisisBy John Keogh – October 15, 2015 612 Advertisement Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories last_img read more

It further sends an unfortunate and horrifying message about how fractured and anaemic the Judicial system is, which will result in common man losing his faith and trust in Indian judicial system and valued principles of rule of law as is promulgated by the Constitution of India.” Another letter has been addressed to the Chief Justice of the Allahabad High Court, now seeking a Judicial Inquiry of the Vikas Dubey Encounter episode. “Appalled” by the “sorry state of affairs” in the state of UP, Advocates Bhavya Sahai and Devesh Saxena have placed a representation before the Chief Justice, in the form of a letter petition, urging him to take cognizance of the alleged “Extra-Judicial Killing” of the Kanpur gangster. The Advocates claim that the UP Police’s version of the incident appears to be “fictional” and inspired from film scripts. “It is highly unlikely and improbable that a criminal being in custody of numerous S.I.T. officials and in their tight classified security will try to escape himself,” they said. Dubey was arrested from MP’s Ujjain yesterday, and was being brought to Kanpur by a convoy of the UP police, in connection with killing of eight policemen on July 3. Allegedly, the vehicle in which Dubey was seated overturned in a skid, after which Dubey is alleged to have died in cross-firing, in attempt to escape. Raising suspicion over the reported series of events the Advocates said, “As per the live coverage of various news channels, the place of occurrence of the entire incident was a Highway and the roads were perfectly in good condition, which makes it questionable as to how to a vehicle can overturn in such a fashion without an involvement of any third party or force, or as to how any sane person will try to make a daring and reckless attempt to flee from the custody of the police on an open Highway having no substantial place of cover/hideout in the vicinity and also to how he imposed a substantial threat to the Police personnel.” In matters of criminal offences, registration of FIR and enquiry at magisterial level is mandatory under various provisions of the CrPC, as also recognized by the Supreme Court in the case of PUCL v. State of Maharashtra (2014 10 SCC 635). The Advocates fear that if this incident goes unchecked judicially, then it will be treated as an act of “valour” by the police officials and it may become an “unwanted societal norm”. “Given the gravity and magnitude of the present incident it is imperative that this Hon’ble Court must take immediate cognizance of this incident and a Judicial Probe under the supervision of sitting judge of this Hon’ble Court must be ordered in order to ascertain the correct facts of the extra-judicial killing of criminal Vikas Dubey so that the faith of citizens in the Indian Judicial System is reaffirmed and restored,” they have urged the Court. A similar letter was addressed to the Chief Justice by a Supreme Court Advocate and a final year law student from Delhi University. They had urged the Chief Justice to order an independent CBI/ SIT enquiry into the incident, to unearth the true facts. Yesterday, a petition was filed before the Supreme Court, hinting at the possibility of Dubey being “killed” by the UP Police. “…there is every possibility that even accused Vikas Dubey shall be killed by Uttar Pradesh Police like other co-accused once his custody is obtained Uttar Pradesh Police,” the plea stated. Apart from seeking transfer of Dubey’s case to the CBI, the plea sought a thorough investigation into the “killing/alleged encounter” of Dubey’s aides who were allegedly involved in killing of eight policemen.
