The consultation was organized by the Anglican Alliance, which helps coordinate international Anglican responses to emergency situations. It has 12 years of experience in coordinating responses to emergencies but has never had to face such a global emergency before.“The Anglican Alliance is working intensively across the communion to learn from effective church responses and share guidelines and resources on COVID-19,” the agency said on its website. “At the same time, we remain working on other issues – disease, conflict, climate change and poverty – which continue to afflict many communities, who will be rendered even more vulnerable by this pandemic.”Read the full article here.

You have lived a most interesting, blessed and challenging life. Please keep the stories coming. A friend charles towne November 10, 2019 at 3:09 pm Reply I remember Mama grabbing a chicken by its head and swinging it forcefully around separating the head (which Mama tossed into the weeds with a flick of her wrist) from the body (which ran wildly about for a few seconds). She then dipped the chicken in boiling water to loosen the feathers before plucking and gutting it.I also remember her scorching the pin feathers from the plucked bird with a lighted roll of newspaper. I remember her slitting an opening between the legs and watching as she reached in and removed the innards, being carful not to rupture the gall bladder. I also remember many years later attempting to do the same thing – kill a chicken by wringing its neck, scalding it to pluck feathers, scorching off pin feathers, and extracting innards. I did it once, that was enough! It was a violent, smelly, and messy ordeal. But for Mama, it was routine because she had too. I suppose if I had to, I could do it routinely too, but times have changed. November 10, 2019 at 3:03 pm Please enter your name here Dear Nr, Poor old Fiddlesticks, he didn’t think so!

Another beautiful story that reminds me my child and yuongerhood at the farms … Cows, pigs, chicken, horses, wild pigs, vultures, buffalos, and many others incredibles creatures … We miss that but we keep and we’d had unique & amazing years during that years.Thanks, Little Brother for remind those years.

Blessings my friend, Chaz I imagine Fiddlesticks suffered from suicidal tendencies because one fateful day he committed the unpardonable sin… he threw caution to the wind and attacked mama.Did I mention that my mama was a wonderful cook?If you take a tough old red rooster and after wringing his neck and plucking all his feathers you cut him up and boil him, and then fry him, that mean old bird will turn out so nice and tender and, delicious? I should say so!OUR PRAYERPapa God, sin stinks doesn’t it? We are told in your word that the prayers of the righteous rise up to you as sweet incense. Please accept our prayers as they are intended. We love you O Holy one, In Jesus blessed name, Amen. Yes Judith, looking back it is a bold fact that mama was a rare breed, courageous to say the least. And I agree about dressing out a chicken being smelly, especially dipping the chicken into the boiling water, I can smell it yet! You also bought back a memory of her burning off the pin feathers. What a life! Love you sis, Chaz 19 COMMENTS Richard Reply Reply A friend Reply Another smile on my face and a chuckle, of course. This reminded me of time on the farm, my grandparents’ farm. Ahhh yes, good memories of fun times with cousins, aunts and uncles, fresh veggies out of the garden….and delicious fried chicken! Well, who knows, maybe it was one of those struttin’ roosters that everyone tried to avoid. Thanks, Chuck!Love your stories! God bless you! charles towne Reply Dear friend, you are so right! So often when we are young we think we have been short changed, deprived if you will, whereas in reality if we had the foresight to change our lives, exchange what has been for something else, something “other” we most likely would settle for nothing less than what is or what has been. We are the sum of our existence, nothing less, nothing more, and it is all good. Blessings on you and yours, Chaz Please enter your comment! Reply November 13, 2019 at 10:09 pm November 10, 2019 at 4:14 pm Nr Reply InspirationBy Charles Towne“If that darned old rooster attacks me once more I’m going to wring his miserable neck.” Those were daddy’s exact words.And so it began.Fiddlesticks was his name, and he lived by grace, mama’s grace. Nobody was allowed to harm Fiddlesticks under any circumstances.As far as mama was concerned Fiddlesticks could do no wrong, but the rest of the family surely knew better.You are probably wondering just who Fiddlesticks was, aren’t you? Back on the old home place fiddlesticks ruled the roost, quite literally I might add.Fiddlesticks was a big old red rooster, a real cock of the walk, the sort that gives all roosters a bad name.Nobody was safe from that demon-possessed rooster. He would attack anything and anybody. Dogs were fair game as were cats, other chickens, the cow, our horse, me, my siblings, even daddy, and I don’t mind telling you that nobody attacked daddy, at least nobody in his right mind.But mama for some reason was off-limits, Fiddlesticks for whatever reason saw her as inviolate and invincible.Over the years I have had some formidable bird acquaintances. As a zoo director, I have had eagles, owls, hawks and cara cara, which is Mexico’s national bird. And I might add that If you have not been vomited on by a turkey vulture you have missed one of the greatest and most singular pleasures of life. And then there are great blue herons.I was canoeing in a Michigan swamp. I had decided to photograph the activity and life on a great blue heron rookery that contained more than a hundred nests. Each nest contained at least one immature heron, and I might add that each of those diabolical birds was well fed. I don’t know why but great blue herons don’t like me.I have never been able to figure out what triggered their response, but quite suddenly each of those birds chose that exact moment, (or so it seemed) to evacuate their blessed little bowels, and I was their target!Yuck!Did I mention that I don’t like great blue herons?Oh yes, back to fiddlesticks, my mama’s big red rooster.Time passes.

The client’s ambitions for this project were for an exemplary residential apartment project with an attention to detail comparable to a single bespoke dwelling, albeit within a multi-residential budget and construction program. The building references the historical thread of Alexandria’s context while focusing on the future occupiers, to create a sense of place and comfort.Save this picture!© Felix ForestAs the first building delivered within a recently rezoned precinct, the challenge was to deliver a perimeter infill building prior to the presence of any surrounding buildings to infill between. The intent was to ensure that the project relied only on itself, not borrowing from surrounding land, in regards to aspect, outlook or sun access. The building comprises 23 one, two and three bedroom apartments over five levels. All dwellings are northern orientated and each achieves cross ventilation. The 4 rooftop apartments each have access to private roof gardens, complete with spas, barbecues and significant landscaping.Save this picture!© Felix ForestSave this picture!Typical Floor PlanSave this picture!© Felix ForestThe residential lobby is announced at street level with a curved wall, tiled with a rich handmade marine blue ceramic. Planning of the building is arranged around a central lift and two open staircases. This arrangement encourages the use of stairs as often as possible. At first glance the rear loaded access balcony may appear a compromise to the privacy of dwellings, but in reality, the careful architectural manipulation of the southern façade and the limited number of dwellings deliver a delightful experience which encourages resident interaction, maintains privacy and amenity and ensures 100% cross ventilation. The exterior material palette of the building is robust and nuanced.Save this picture!SectionThe off-form concrete up-stands provide privacy and protection to the dwellings complemented with painted timber ‘blinkers’ to the lower levels, while externally the layered and poured effect of the concrete speaks to the individual crafting of the building. From the street the pedestrian is engaged in the interiors of the dwellings through the articulation of the ribbed concrete ceilings, at once integrating the buildings structural solution while dispensing of our evil enemy – plasterboard! As the building rises, the balconies subtly step towards the street, creating a concave overhang to the ground level retail while concurrently disguising the two top levels of the building.Save this picture!© Brett BoardmanThese upper levels, detailed in steel, are lighter and more playful, with full height glazing and palisade balustrades opening up to take advantage of distant city views. We are perhaps most proud of two elements of this project. The first being the interiors – which we think stand apart from the barrage of ‘one size fits all’ plasterboard clad multi-unit residential product on the market. And secondly, the site-specific commissioned artwork within the lobby – a poem by Emily Daves, which aims to touch the soul of every future inhabitant of the building. We are passionate about delivering unique and affordable open market multiple housing that is nuanced, personal and delightful.Project gallerySee allShow lessHidden Valley House / SU ArchitectsSelected ProjectsWinning Team Selected to Curate 2019 Oslo Architecture TriennaleArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:41 Birmingham St, Alexandria NSW 2015, AustraliaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Help by sharing this information News Bangladeshi writer and blogger dies in detention A court in the southeastern city of Chittagong yesterday convicted 12 people of murdering journalist Kamal Hossein in 2004. Eleven of the defendants – five of them members of the ruling Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) – were sentenced to life imprisonment and fines of 50,000 taka (610 euros). They said they would appeal. One, Mohamed Siraj was sentenced to death. Fourteen other people were acquitted. Hossein was murdered on 22 August 2004 in Khagrachhari. He was the correspondent of the daily Ajker Kagoj and secretary-general of the Manikchari press club.————————————————————23.08.2004Investigative journalist murderedArmed men abducted and murdered journalist, Kamal Hossain, of the daily Ajker Kagoj, on 22 August. He was the third journalist to be killed in Bangladesh since the beginning of the year.Expressing its deep shock, Reporters Without Borders called on Home Affairs Minister for State Lutfuzzaman Babor, to do everything possible to see that an investigation will uncover the identity of those responsible.”The situation for the press in Bangladesh has become alarming. Not a week goes by without a journalist being attacked or threatened,” said the organisation.Armed men burst into Hossain’s home overnight on 21-22 August. The journalist hid when he heard the raiders break in but gave himself up to them after they threatened to kill his two-year-old son. Police found the journalist’s body a few hours later two kilometres from his home.His wife said that Hossain, who was also secretary general of the Manikchhari press club, had recently received death threats. He had been investigating cases linked to gangsterism. A few days before his murder he had helped police to identify some gang members.Political militants, criminal gangs or religious extremists constantly target journalists in Bangladesh for brutal attack.Since 18 August, the daily Prothorn Alo has received threats from several Islamist organisations angered by the newspaper’s expose on Middle East funding for the religious schools, the madrasas.Five journalists were injured in grenade attacks on the Awami League opposition party rally in Dhaka on 21 August.According to Reporters Without Borders’ tally, four journalists have been assaulted since 13 August and more than 60 others have been threatened in less than one month.

The press freedom organisation is nonetheless going ahead with the news conference and the screening of a film about Politkovskaya in Moscow, both of which will be attended by her children, Ilya and Vera, and by Novaya Gazeta editor Dmitri Muratov.“It was extremely important for us to be in Russia alongside Anna Politkovskaya’s colleagues and family on the third anniversary of her murder,” Julliard said. “We wanted to be there all the more this year, as it has been a terrible one for journalists and human rights activists with the surge of violence in the North Caucasus, a region that Anna knew particularly well. “We are shocked by this decision, especially as we have always acted openly with the Russian authorities. They decided to prevent us from expressing our solidarity with Russian journalists and human rights activists. Moscow does not want us to address the Russians directly. But we will not give up.”Julliard added: “We take this opportunity to reaffirm our support for Russian journalists and free speech activists and to express our admiration for their courage and perseverance, as well as our determination to remain at their side.”Reporters Without Borders – Russiaenvoyé par rsf_internet. – L’info video en direct.Entitled “Third anniversary of Anna Politkovskaya’s death: the murderers of journalists still go unpunished,” the news conference went ahead as planned at the Independent Press Centre at 12:30 p.m., Moscow time.

Reporters Without Borders had a poster entitled “Russian School of Journalism” specially produced for the anniversary in Russian, French and English. It is based on a cartoon by Danziger that was published at the time of Politkovskaya’s murder.A total of 22 journalists have been killed in connection with their work in Russia since March 2000.

However, he clarified that the Government has been insisting on increasing diversity at the High Court level, from where Judges at the Top Court are usually appointed. “The Judges of the Supreme Court are appointed under Article 124 of Constitution, which do not provide for any reservation based on caste or class of person including women,” Law Minister Ravi Shanker Prasad said. The Minister was responding to the concern raised by a Member of Parliament, P. Wilson, in the RajyaSabha.Wilson had highlighted that for the past few years, there is declining representation from all the sections of the society in the Apex Court. “A more diverse judiciary is desirable because without one, the chances are greatly increased for a violation of the rights on these under represented and could indirectly imply discrimination. Significant over-representation of certain sections calls into question the objectivity of the current system and its inability to recruit from different social social groups and ensure social justice,” he wrote while urging the Parliament to “step in”. The Law Minister has now clarified that at present, there are 30 judges at the Supreme Court including two women judges, three judges from minority communities and one judge from Scheduled Caste community are in position in the Supreme Court. He further stated that judges in the Supreme Court are appointed predominantly from amongst the Chief Justices / Judges of the High Courts and the Government has been requesting that due consideration be given to suitable candidates belonging to the Scheduled Castes, Scheduled Tribes, other Backward Classes, Minorities and Women while making appointments to the High Courts. Wilson’s letter on the other hand stated, “There is a diversity deficit in our Supreme Court and is not indicative of the wonderfully diverse and pluralistic society of India. Judicial diversity is fundamental to the quality of judging. Many social groups are poorly represented in the Apex court. There is lack of women judges and judges from historically oppressed and marginalized sections of society. It is not that they are not qualified enough. This may mean their rights are not being properly safeguarded, and may eventually lead to the infringement and violation of such rights. People of this country are afraid that a very narrow, homogeneous group of Judges belonging to certain classes are not necessarily going to reflect the views and values of society as a whole, particularly on issues involving diverse, cultural and generational matters because they would require more perspectives, as the Judges would interpret and enforce law based on their own background.” Click Here To Download Wilson’s Letter Click Here To Download Ministry’s ResponseNext Story
Airglow imager and dynasonde/imaging Doppler interferometer (IDI) radar wind measurements at Halley Station, Antarctica (75.6degreesS, 26.6degreesW) have been used to estimate the seasonal variation of the vertical fluxes of horizontal momentum carried by high-frequency atmospheric gravity waves. The cross-correlation coefficients between the vertical and horizontal wind perturbations were calculated from sodium (Na) airglow imager data collected during the austral winter seasons of 2000 and 2001. These were combined with wind velocity variances from coincident radar measurements to estimate the daily averaged upper limit of the vertical flux of horizontal momentum due to gravity waves. The resulting momentum flux at the Na airglow altitudes, while displaying a large day-to-day variability, showed a marked rotation from the northwest to the southeast throughout the winter season. Calculations show that this rotation is consistent with seasonal changes in the wind field filtering of gravity waves below the Na airglow region. The calculations also indicate that while the magnitude of the meridional wind is small, this filtering leads to the observed seasonal changes in the meridional momentum flux.
