Entre los oyentes se encuentran, a la izquierda, George Handley, profesor de humanidades en la Universidad de Brigham Young, y Forrest Cuch, director ejecutivo de Ute Tribal Enterprises. ENS, Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg[Episcopal News Service – Salt Lake City, Utah] Los participantes en el programa de la Iglesia Episcopal “El encuentro de la pobreza y el medioambiente”, que tuvo lugar el 21 de abril, convinieron en que las personas de fe pueden y deben desempeñar un papel importante en enseñar a las comunidades a ser buenos vecinos y mayordomos de la creación.“En las tradiciones religiosas abrahámicas, la pobreza confronta el sueño divino de la abundancia: de un banquete celestial en una tierra de paz con justicia”, dijo la obispa primada, Katharine Jefferts Schori, en sus palabras de presentación.“Los anticuerpos de la pobreza comienzan a formarse cuando los miembros de la comunidad descubren que su común humanidad y dignidad son interdependientes”, dijo ella, instando a las personas a comenzar por “optar por advertir y hacer algo respecto a la pobreza en nuestro medio”.El programa de dos horas de duración fue transmitido en directo vía Internet desde la catedral de San Marcos [St Mark’s Cathedral], de la diócesis de Utah, en Salt Lake City. Las estadísticas mostraron que 700 computadoras recibieron la transmisión; por lo menos 50 de esas computadoras fueron usadas por grupos que vieron la transmisión. La sesión estará disponible a solicitud y contará con un manual del facilitador y con materiales para optimizar la recepción y la participación. El texto de las palabras de Jefferts Schori se hará público cuando la versión por encargo de la transmisión esté disponible.de PBS, a la derecha, hace una pregunta durante el programa “Encuentro de la pobreza y el medioambiente”. El evento de dos horas de duración se transmitió en directo vía Internet desde la catedral episcopal de San Marcos en Salt Lake City, Utah. ENS, Foto de Mary Frances Schjonberg.”]El evento, que tuvo lugar el día antes del Día de la Tierra, constó de dos paneles moderados por Kim Lawton del noticiero semanal de ética y religión [Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly] de PBS.Durante el primer debate sobre la pregunta de si las iniciativas de sostenibilidad pueden sacar a las personas de la pobreza, Bonnie Anderson, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados, les recordaba a los oyentes que la gente de fe cuenta con la unidad de propósito que es fundamental para organizar la comunidad. “Contamos con la unidad de la regla de amar a nuestro prójimo como a nosotros mismos”, dijo. “El problema es que no conocemos muy bien a nuestros prójimos”.Forrest Cuch, director ejecutivo de Ute Tribal Enterprises, dijo a los participantes que “lo que más nos perturba es que toda esta degradación [ambiental] ha causado muchísimo daño a nuestra gente hasta el grado de la desesperanza”. Él definió esa desesperanza como “nuestro problema más amenazante” y dijo que los líderes tribales están tratando de ayudar a su gente a reconectarse con las creencias tradicionales.“Les estamos recordando lo que alguna vez fueron”, agregó. “Mi pueblo proviene de hermosas partes de este país… éramos un pueblo muy feliz, muy sano y éramos un pueblo que se autosostenía”, y estábamos “profundamente conectados con la tierra”.George Handley, profesor de humanidades de la Universidad de Brigham Young, dijo durante el mismo debate que la religión ha sido históricamente un obstáculo para la mayordomía medioambiental, pero “cada tradición religiosa tiene principios sagrados que viviéramos a su altura y nos adhiriéramos a ellos serían de gran beneficio para la tierra”. Él sugirió que la adhesión individual y colectiva a esos principios, así como una labor que trascienda las fronteras ecuménicas e interreligiosas, tales como la del foro del 21 de abril, “desatan una enorme cantidad de energía espiritual”.Handley dijo anteriormente que había encontrado “un misterioso obstáculo teológico” que impedían a las personas prestarle atención a asuntos tales como las fuentes de energía alternativa. Algunas personas le han dicho que les parecería una ingratitud hacia Dios si no usaran para su beneficio los dones de Dios del petróleo y el gas [natural].“Simplemente me gustaría señalarle a la gente que el sol mismo es un don de Dios, el viento, la energía geotérmica -estas son extraordinarias fuentes de energía que pertenecen también a la misma categoría de dones de la creación”, afirmó. “No creo que ninguna teología sea responsable si no nos acordamos de nuestra propia responsabilidad de ser creativos y de hacer ajustes cuando nos damos cuenta que lo que hacíamos ya ha dejado realmente de funcionar”.Durante el segundo panel sobre el problema de reducir las consecuencias de la salud ambiental para los que se encuentran en la pobreza, el Dr. Gerry Hardison, director del hospital de la Misión Maseno en Kenia, y misionero de la Iglesia Episcopal, instó a los participantes a asumir una visión a largo plazo en defensa del medio ambiente. Dijo que la cuestión es si “vamos a invertir en el mundo después de nuestra muerte o no”.“Es una inversión que significa sacrificio; los dividendos son enormes, pero ustedes no van a verlos personalmente”, dijo, provocando un aplauso.El Rdo. Michael Livingston, director de la Iniciativa de la Pobreza del Consejo Nacional de Iglesias, dijo que las personas de fe “se ven confrontadas por esta tajante demanda de actuar con la mayor responsabilidad hacia la creación de Dios”.Cecilia Calvo, coordinadora del proyecto de justicia medioambiental de la Conferencia de Obispos Católicos [Romanos] de EE.UU., expresó su acuerdo con este punto al decir “esto no es radical, esto no es nuevo para nosotros. El cuidado de la creación de Dios comenzó con el Génesis.“Para nosotros como pueblo de fe ésta es una parte esencial de quienes somos. Es algo sencillo”, apuntó. “No es algo nuevo; no es una moda pasajera”.— La Rda. Mary Frances Schjonberg es editora y reportera de Episcopal News Service. Traducido por Vicente Echerri.

Women’s golf’s Bruner sets record at ICON Invitational

first_img + posts Greta Bruner tied a TCU women’s golf record in The Woodlands (photo from gofrogs.com) ReddIt A COVID-19 Charles Schwab Challenge Branson is a junior journalism major from Fort Worth, Texas. He enjoys writing about all sports and plans to go to law school after graduation. printGreta Bruner’s record-tying performance helped carry the No. 19 women’s golf team to a fourth-place finish at the ICON Invitational in The Woodlands last week. Bruner’s final round score of 68 gave her a 54-hole score of 210, tying her with four others for the best score in TCU history. Overall, Bruner finished as the individual runner up, finishing three strokes behind tournament winner Alice Hewson of Clemson. “Gretawas amazing all week and has worked really hard to elevate her game to the nextlevel,” head coach Angie Ravaioli-Larkin said. “I am super proud of her.”After a dull opening round that landed TCU in the middle of the pack and 18 strokes off the lead, the Horned Frogs surged in the last 36 holes. The team’s 1-under final two rounds was even with tournament champion Houston. “This team continuously puts themselves in position to win,” Ravaioli-Larkin said. “They are strong and courageous and never back down. I am proud of our comeback and the discipline of these ladies.”First-year Sabrina Iqbal continued to impact the team, finishing 2-over par and tied for ninth. She has three top-10 finishes in her last five tournaments. Senior captain Annika Clark struggled to an opening-round score of 80 but shot just 1-over par in the final two rounds to finish tied for 37th. Her 1-under 71 in the final round was second on the team to only Bruner, on a day when the Frogs stormed up the team standings. After a disappointing ninth-place finish at the Lady Puerto Rico Classic last month in the team’s first tournament of the semester, the Horned Frogs returned to their fall form at the Woodlands. They won two of their four tournaments last semester and finished second in another, sparking excitement within the program.“The fall was really cool and we got a lot better,” Clarksaid. “We set the school record for lowest tournament score in back-to-backtournaments.”The Horned Frogs’ next tournament is March 15-16 in the Tar Heel Classic in Casa de Campo, Dominican Republic.

Iranian judicial system: a repression machine against journalists

first_imgNews Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 June 9, 2021 Find out more After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists On the 11th anniversary of the death in detention of Iranian-Canadian photojournalist Zahra Kazemi, Reporters Without Borders is calling attention to the continuing harsh repression of information providers.Arbitrary arrests, followed by torture and other inhumane treatment in prisons, mark the judicial system. Another major characteristic: impunity, which ensures that arbitrary arrests continue.Impunity and forced disappearanceThose who order and carry out murders of dissident journalists have never had to fear being brought to justice.Among the many cases are those of Ebrahim Zalzadeh, Majid Charif, Mohamed Mokhtari, Mohammad Jafar Pouyandeh and Pirouz Davani. They were all executed by Intelligence and Security Ministry agents in November-December, 1998.To that list may be added, in addition to Kazemi, the names of Ayfer Serçe, a Kurdish journalist for the Euphrates News Agency killed in 2006; Omidreza Mirsayafi, a young blogger who died in prison in 2009; Alireza Eftekhari, a journalist for Abrar Economy who died the same year; Haleh Sahabi, a journalist and women’s rights activist whose death in 2011 followed a beating. Other recent deaths include those of Hoda Saber, a journalist for Iran-e-Farda, who died in prison in 2011; and Sattar Beheshti who died in police custody in 2012 .On 28 June, the Tehran media court extended for one month the detention of journalist Saba Azarpeyk, who was arrested on 28 May. Like other detained individuals, she effectively disappeared in the Evin prison security system labyrinth, deprived of her rights, especially the right to a lawyer and to family visits.In a press conference on 19 June, the Kerman city prosecutor announced that contributors to one website had received sentences of one to 11 years for having aided enemy media. He referred, without mentioning names, to eight staff members of the Narenji (Orange in Persian) site: Ali Asghar Hormand, Abass Vahedi, Alireza Vaziri, Nassim Nikmehr, Malieh Nakehi, Mohammad Hossien Mossazadeh, and Sara Sajad Pour. They were arrested on 3 December 2013, and transferred to a secret location after their homes were searched and their personal property seized.These practices essentially amount to forced disappearance and constitute a flagrant violation of Article 3 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and of Articles 9 and 11 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. They also constitute a serious breach of Articles 32 and 39 of the constitution of the Islamic Republic of Iran.Leaders of the 2009 protest movement – Mehdi Karoubi, owner of Etemad Melli, a newspaper that was shut down; Mir Hossein Mousavi, owner of Kalameh Sabaz, another closed newspaper and his wife, writer Zahra Rahnavard – have been arbitrarily and illegally detained since 24 February 2011. They have been deprived of all rights, without judgement or sentence, simply by decision of the Supreme Guide.Judicial system controlled by the Supreme Guide Judicial independence is non-existent. According to Article 110 of the Iranian constitution, the Supreme Guide appoints the head of the judicial system. On 22 June, Ali Khamenei, renewed the term of Mohammad Sadegh Amoli Larijani for another five years.Amoli Larijani was initially appointed in 2009 to organize repression of the protest movement against Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. During the five years of Amoli Larijani’s first term, more than 300 and netizens were arbitrarily arrested, subjected to unjust trials and sentenced to lengthy terms. Most of the prisoners have been held incommunicado, in violation of international law. Contrary to the doctrine spelled out in Article 156 of the Iranian constitution, in which the head of the judicial system is responsible for “restoring public rights and promoting justice and legitimate freedoms,” judges are agents of the Intelligence Ministry and the Revolutionary Guards. In not prosecuting those who violate basic freedoms, who order and carry out torture, Amoli Larijani encourages these perpetrators to feel that they are above the law.Most of the judges on whom the Iranian justice system depends have been accused of corruption and other serious crimes. One of them is the former Tehran prosecutor, Saeed Mortazavi, implicated in Kazemi’s death in Evin prison in 2003, as well as in Mirsayafi’s death in prison in suspicious circumstances. During his time as prosecutor, Mortazavi was also responsible for the shut-downs of about 100 newspapers, and the arrests, torture and other mistreatment of numerous journalists and netizens.More than 60 per-cent of arrested journalists and netizens were sentenced by branches 15 and 28 of the revolutionary courts, whose judges are also accused of serious crimes. Among them are actions that may meet the definition of crimes against humanity – extra-judicial executions of thousands of political dissidents in 1988.Abughasem Salevati, chief judge of branch 15, has for years been a leading persecutor of journalists and netizens. In 2009 he presided over Stalinist-style trials. He alone has sentenced more than 100 media workers. Abolfazal Ghadiani, a distinguished figure close to reformists, who was sentenced by Salevati, described the judge’s true face in an open letter to the judicial system head: “Sir, you know as well as I do the corrupt past of this judge when he was in the city of Hamedan, following which he was in charge of courts that tried political cases in Tehran. You are certainly acquainted with the reasons that motivate corrupt and weak individuals to be appointed judges. They are in those positions solely to follow the orders of intelligence agents, of the Revolutionary Guard and of the intelligence minister. To pass sentence – without arguments, as these forces wish – on prisoners.”Mohammad Moghiseh, chief judge of the 28th branch, former interrogator and torturer in the 3rd branch of the revolutionary courts, known under the name “Naserian,” was one of the agents implicated in the mass executions of 1988. Since June, 2009 he has sentenced about 100 journalists and netizens to heavy prison terms.On 27 May, Moghiseh was the judge who sentenced eight netizens to a cumulative total of 123 years in prison for anti-regime publicity, insults to religion and insults to the Supreme Guide of the Revolution. The sentences were harsher than the law provides for these “crimes.”Moghiseh and Salevati are supported in their ignoble deeds by fellow judges who serve on appeals courts. These judges almost invariably uphold sentences passed by lower courtsVictims of injustice find themselves caught in a vicious circle – a situation that constitutes a grave threat to information freedom in Iran.On 21 June, Rihaneh Tabatabai, a former journalist with the daily Shargh, was sent back to prison to serve a two-year sentence. She had been arrested in 2011, and was sentenced the following year by the 28th branch.Reporters Without Borders has also learned of the arrest on 20 June of Mehdi Khazali, coordinator of the Baran blog. The arrest is Khazali’s seventh in five years. He is accused of insulting government officials, following the publication of an article in which he denounced religious conservative Mohammad Reza Kahdavi Kani as corrupt. Kani is president of the Assembly of Experts, whose members are appointed by the Supreme Guide. On 29 June, Khazali suffered a heart attack following a hunger strike he began after his arrest. He is hospitalized in Tehran.The relentless persecution of imprisoned and ill journalists and netizens continues. Even in serious circumstances, prison and judicial officials only rarely authorize their transfer to hospitals. These prisoners, who are in serious need of quality medical care, include: Hossein Ronaghi Malki, Mohammad Reza Pourshajari, Mostafa Daneshjo,Hamidreza Moradi, Afshin Karampour, Mohammad Davari, Mohammad Sadegh Kabovand, Kivan Samimi Behbani, and Saeed Matinpour.

While traveling I saw God through his beautiful creation. Now I see him everywhere I go. I’ve seen that no matter what you’ve done or where you have gone God will always be with you. When we stopped by in Arizona for a night I wandered off for a couple of minutes and I looked up at the sky, and I saw the most beautiful sunset I’ve ever seen in my life. This is why I just love traveling because I love experiencing new places where the Lord has sent me too. Every trip I go to with LACF, I always feel Gods presence and I grow more into Him.This year I’ve been given an opportunity to travel with Lake Avenue Church and Maranatha Students to New Orleans and help the community to rebuild broken homes and hearts. To the people who are reading this article, I would love and appreciate prayers for this trip. My prayer request is not only for myself but also for my team and for the people we will be helping this week. Thank you all and God Bless!Support Samantha and other students and families of LACF.
