Karl Loomes | Monday, 30th March, 2020 | More on: BP RDSB Oil companies, perhaps more than any other industry, always see their fortunes move in line with the price of their underlying asset – crude oil. While the coronavirus scare is causing a general sell-off in stocks, the oil sector is suffering from a more fundamental problem, one that has been on the horizon for most of the past 12 months.This problem of course, is oversupply. Crude oil prices are currently trading below $30 a barrel. The coronavirus has been perhaps the straw that broke the camel’s back, but it is the glut of crude that has allowed it to plummet so far, so fast.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…The problem with making oil…The reason oil companies are so linked with the price of crude is that so many facets of their business are dependent on crude prices being at or above certain levels. From downstream to upstream, different aspects of the business are only viable when crude prices are a certain level.For example, let’s say it costs $50 to get each barrel of crude from deep wells or from shale fields. You need to be able to sell it for more than $50 to make a profit.Of course the big oil companies have been doing this for a long time, and they know how to act when oil tanks – they cut capital expenditure, halt production at expensive fields, and generally batten down the hatches until crude goes back up. Historically, it always has gone back up.Can oil recover?I believe that oil will, once again, go back up…at some point.In the meantime though, the coronavirus is having a broad impact on fuel consumption, and thus crude consumption. This is likely to continue for some time. I suspect that once the world finally gets a handle on the situation and life returns to normal, then travel will again become an everyday thing. This may not be for another year, but it will eventually happen.OPEC and its member countries have been particularly obstinate in their refusal to cut quotas. I think long-term greed will eventually outweigh the short-term variety, and the group will begin to cut production in order to bolster prices.Investment opportunities?Given my belief that crude prices will recover, I see the current situation as an opportunity rather than a cause for panic. There is risk, however, and I would only consider investing in the large blue chips.For me, this means BP (LSE: BP) and Royal Dutch Shell (LSE: RDSB). I have long been a fan of these two oil companies. Both are well placed in size, scope, and cash to withstand the pressures of low crude prices, certainly for a year or so.At the moment, both companies are maintaining their respective dividends, though I suspect this may change if crude prices stay at these levels for the next few months.Both companies are as diverse as an oil company can be, and Shell particularly has shown a willingness to try out new things – exactly what is required in these kinds of times.

Image source: Getty Images “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” Shares in clean-energy company ITM Power (LSE: ITM) have pulled back recently. Since late January, its share price has fallen about 35%. However, the stock is still up about 330% over the last year.Has the ITM share price weakness created a buying opportunity for me? Let’s take a look at the investment case.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…ITM Power shares: the bull caseIn today’s world, in which sustainability is very much in focus, ITM Power appears to have a lot of growth potential. It specialises in hydrogen energy solutions designed to take excess energy from the power network, convert it into hydrogen, and then use this clean energy in various applications.ITM Power says its clean energy will be used in three main areas – Mobility, Power-to-X, and Industry. It adds that there are multiple application areas within each area, all of which are acknowledged to be growing rapidly and requiring systems of ever-larger capacities.The company readily provides a more detailed look at some of its key markets and given the wide range of applications, ITM could play a key role in the UK’s shift towards net zero carbon emissions.It’s worth noting analysts expect the firm’s revenues to surge in the years ahead. For the financial year ending 30 April, revenue is expected to rise nearly 90% to £6.16m. Meanwhile, for the year ending 30 April 2022, revenue is expected to increase nearly 400% to £30.1m. This is very encouraging. That’s an impressive level of growth.My concernsHowever, I do have some reservations about investing in ITM Power shares. My first concern is in relation to the stock’s valuation. Even after the recent share price pullback, ITM sports a huge market capitalisation. Currently, it’s around £2.4bn. That equates to a forward-looking price-to-sales ratio of around 80, using next year’s revenue forecast.That valuation seems very high to me. And high valuations add risk. We’ve seen recently that stocks with high valuations and no earnings can be crushed in a sell-off.My second concern is ITM Power is still losing a lot of money. In the company’s half-year results for the period ended 31 October, it reported a loss from operations of £12m, up from a loss of £9.8m in the same period a year earlier.Analysts expect the company to generate net losses of £19.5m this financial year and £10.1m next financial year. I generally avoid unprofitable companies these days because I’ve found they often turn out to be poor long-term investments.ITM Power shares: my viewWeighing everything up, I’m going to keep ITM Power shares on my watchlist for now. The company certainly looks interesting. However, the valuation looks excessive, to my mind. And the fact that the company isn’t making any money adds considerable risk to the investment case.All things considered, I think there are plenty of other growth stocks that are a better fit for my portfolio right now.

African Anglicans appeal for harmony between Muslims/Christians

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI 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 Albany, NY [Anglican Communion News Service] Anglican leaders from across the continent of Africa have made an emotional appeal to Muslim faith leaders to stand with them in opposition to “tragic violence that is destroying our communities.”The appeal was issued at the end of a three-day meeting of the Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa in Burundi where conflict between the two faiths was high on the agenda.The statement read: “The Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa…has noted with much sadness the increasing deterioration between Muslim and Christian communities in different parts of the world, specifically our Provinces of Sudan, Nigeria, and the Diocese of Egypt.“As a council, coming from communities diverse in religion and culture, the present circumstances have forced us to ask whether the violence we see and experience is driven by religious intolerance from our brothers of different religions with whom we have lived together for generations, in some cases centuries, or whether in fact it is a result of a much greater problem of exploitation of ignorance and religious beliefs for political gain.“Whatever the cause, the subsequent violence is devastating. In most cases, this societal decline has resulted in bloodshed, loss of life, livelihoods, poor living standards, and has bred bitterness and hopelessness.”Highlighting conflict in Sudan, South Sudan, Egypt and Nigeria the statement–signed on behalf of CAPA by the outgoing Chairman Archbishop Ian Earnest–called for an end to violence that “destabilise whole communities”.“As CAPA, we reach out to Muslim faith leaders of these affected communities to stand with us in solidarity opposed to the tragic violence that is destroying our communities in Africa. We call upon individual Christians and Muslims in Sudan, Egypt and Nigeria, especially the youth, to join hands united against religious extremism and respectful of religious and cultural differences.”Celebrating the initiative by the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar to make peace by creating “Bayt al-‘ila” or a “Family home” from Muslim and Christian leaders to deal with the sectarian strife in Egypt, CAPA also urged governements of affected countries to grant Christians and other religious groups, equal rights and freedom to enjoy the benefits of full citizenship.“We also call on our respective governments to introduce appropriate measures to guarantee freedom of citizens to live and practice their religions by providing security to their lives and property.”The full statement follows:Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa11th Council MeetingBujumbura, BurundiWednesday 8th February 2012An Appeal for Harmony in and Greater Understanding between Muslim and Christian communities.Love thy neighbour as thyself (Matthew 22:39)The Council of Anglican Provinces of Africa, comprising the 12 member Provinces of Africa at its 11th council meeting held in Bujumbura, Burundi from 4th – 8th February 2012 has noted with much sadness the increasing deterioration between Muslim and Christian communities in different parts of the world, specifically our Provinces of Sudan, Nigeria, and the Diocese of Egypt.As a council, coming from communities diverse in religion and culture, the present circumstances have forced us to ask whether the violence we see and experience is driven by religious intolerance from our brothers of different religions with whom we have lived together for generations, in some cases centuries, or whether in fact it is a result of a much greater problem of exploitation of ignorance and religious beliefs for political gain.Whatever the cause, the subsequent violence is devastating. In most cases, this societal decline has resulted in bloodshed, loss of life, livelihoods, poor living standards, and has bred bitterness and hopelessness.In Sudan, the Islamic Government in Khartoum continues to bombard civilians day and night in the regions of Nuba Mountains and Blue Nile forcing them to flee their homes and find refuge in caves or to cross the border into refugee camps in South Sudan. Additionally, clergy in Sudan are harassed and arrested when they have not committed any crimes.In Egypt, Muslims and Christians have lived together for many centuries however some militant Islamic groups cause clashes between Muslims and Christians. The clashes reflect the misunderstanding and mistrust between the two faith communities.And in Nigeria, the Muslim extremist group Boko Haram claims responsibility for blowing up churches on Christmas Day 2011 as well as the United Nations building in Abuja, the Police Headquarters in Abuja, and security outfits in Maiduguri, Damaturu and Kano killing several security agents and innocent civilians.The attacks that have taken place on Christian communities do not just affect Christians but destabilise whole communities and are detrimental to Muslims and other faith groups as well, whether or not they are the targets of these attacks.CAPA affirms that the attacks on Christian and Muslim communities as a result of religiously-motivated extremism is unacceptable and must be brought to an end immediately.We are pleased that there is an initiative in Egypt by the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar to make peace by creating “Bayt al-‘ila” or “Family home” from Muslim and Christian leaders to deal with the sectarian strife in Egypt. However, there is much that religious leaders from the Muslim and Christian communities can do together to bring peace to our traumatised and turbulent communities.As CAPA, we reach out to Muslim faith leaders of these affected communities to stand with us in solidarity opposed to the tragic violence that is destroying our communities in Africa. We call upon individual Christians and Muslims in Sudan, Egypt and Nigeria, especially the youth, to join hands united against religious extremism and respectful of religious and cultural differences.We urge the governments of these countries to grant Christians and other religious groups, equal rights and freedom to enjoy the benefits of full citizenship. We also call on our respective governments to introduce appropriate measures to guarantee freedom of citizens to live and practice their religions by providing security to their lives and property.In this decade where already the winds of change have blown strongly throughout our continent, particularly in these three countries, we encourage all Christians and Muslims of Africa to refrain from violence towards people of different faiths and to recognise the sanctity of every human life as precious in God’s sight.________________CAPA ChairmanThe Most Rev Ian Ernest8th February 2012 Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Rector Columbus, GA Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Collierville, TN Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Submit an Event Listing Ecumenical & Interreligious Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Tags Submit a Job Listing Rector Knoxville, TN Virtual Episcopal Latino Ministry Competency Course Online Course Aug. 9-13 Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Featured Events Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Anglican Communion, Join the Episcopal Diocese of Texas in Celebrating the Pauli Murray Feast Online Worship Service June 27 New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Youth Minister Lorton, VA AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to PrintFriendlyPrintFriendlyShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailShare to MoreAddThis Rector Martinsville, VA An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Featured Jobs & Calls Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL center_img By ACNS staffPosted Feb 8, 2012 Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Africa, Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Shreveport, LA Press Release Service Director of Music Morristown, NJ Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Bath, NC Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Tampa, FL Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Loíza es una municipalidad costera que fue severamente afectada por el huracán María. Foto Yuisa Ríos/FEMA.[Episcopal News Service] El Rdo. Rafael Zorrilla no podía creer que su teléfono funcionara para hacer esta llamada.Pero Zorrilla, canónigo del Ordinario de la Diócesis de Puerto Rico, se las arregló para compartir con Episcopal News Service su experiencia sobre la isla, que fue devastada por el huracán María el 20 de septiembre y al parecer la desconectó del resto del mundo desde entonces.La necesidad más urgente ha sido la comunicación. Comida, agua potable, albergue y gasolina también se necesitan desesperadamente, pero hasta ahora ha habido poco éxito en compartir esas necesidades.“Tendría que haber vivido en 1942 para entender lo que es vivir aquí ahora. No hay correo electrónico, ni internet ni teléfonos la mayor parte del tiempo”, dijo Zorrilla a Episcopal News Service desde su casa en San Juan cerca del centro diocesano.“Puerto Rico está sufriendo mucho ahora mismo. Lo estoy experimentando personalmente, no vamos a tener electricidad al menos en seis meses. Hay muchísimos daños. Muchísimos daños”.La espera de cuatro horas para conseguir gasolina era frustrante, pero Zorrilla sabe que hay situaciones mucho peores. Miles de personas se han quedado sin hogar, dijo. Un miembro del personal diocesano le contó que tuvo que caminar durante cinco horas y media para ver cómo estaban sus padres. Estaban bien.Esta casa en Loíza fue destruida por los fuertes vientos que trajo consigo María, el huracán de categoría 4 que arrasó Puerto Rico el 20 de septiembre. Foto de Yuisa Ríos/FEMA.El huracán María no fue sino el último de una serie de tormentas tropicales que azotaron Estados Unidos y sus territorios. La temporada ciclónica del Atlántico en 2017 se ha presentado como una de las más destructivas de la historia reciente, en que los huracanes Harvey, Irma, José y María han causado enormes daños desde Texas a Florida, pasando por Georgia y el Caribe, según la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo.Cuando María  azotó Puerto Rico, era una tormenta de categoría 4 con ráfagas sostenidas de hasta 297 km. por hora, el huracán más potente que azotara la isla en más de 80 años. El nivel de precipitación fue de 38 a 63 cm, con 100 cm o más en algunos lugares, según el Centro Nacional de Huracanes.“Algunos puentes y carreteras han quedado completamente destruidos”, informó el centro.Una vez que se disponga de transporte, muchas personas podrían marcharse de la isla para siempre.El Rdo. Tim Núñez, canónigo del Ordinario en la Diócesis de Florida Central, dijo que su zona, particularmente el Condado de Osceola, ya había visto un aumento de la población hispana, de la cual muchos son puertorriqueños, debido a la precaria economía de la isla. “Esperamos que venga una oleada masiva de puertorriqueños a Florida Central”, dijo Núñez. “Con los huracanes, probablemente se acelerará”.Basándose en el número de vuelos programados, el gobierno puertorriqueño calcula que unos 2.000 [isleños] llegarán diariamente a Estados Unidos continental en un futuro próximo una vez que se restablezcan los vuelos, dijo el Rdo. José Rodríguez, rector interino de la iglesia episcopal de Jesús de Nazaret en Orlando.“Va a causar un éxodo masivo de Puerto Rico”, declaró Rodríguez a Episcopal News Servicie. La primera oleada va a ser de niños y de estudiantes universitarios. Es algo muy puertorriqueño el enviar a los hijos por delante”.Rodríguez es también el capellán episcopal de la Universidad de Florida Central. El centro de estudios acordó otorgar matrículas [sin coste] a estudiantes universitarios puertorriqueños, expresó.El Rdo. P. Juan Ángel Monge, sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints’ Episcopal Church] en Lakewood, Nueva Jersey, tiene un hijo que vive en Puerto Rico con su pareja y un bebé de 3 meses.  En Facebook, Monge pidió ayuda para conseguir alimento, agua y transporte para el Hospital HIMA•San Pablo en Bayamón, el cual cuenta con electricidad a partir de generadores, porque el bebé necesitaba entubación para respirar. El mismo día, la familia llegó sana y salva al hospital, gracias a la ayuda de la diócesis, el clero, su  familia y otras personas que vieron su post y lo compartieron. “Él está ahora  en cámara de oxígeno y respirando por sí solo. Gracias a todos, gracias a Dios, ¡Bendiciones y paz¡”. Escribió Monge el 25 de septiembre.La Rda. Gladys Rodríguez es sacerdote en la iglesia de La Encarnación [Church of the Incarnation] que se encuentra en Oviedo, en las afueras de Orlando, Florida. Ex actriz en Puerto Rico y ordenada en Orlando en enero, Rodríguez puede ministrar en Estados Unidos y Puerto Rico. Su esposo está en la isla, mientras su hija vino a Orlando antes del huracán. Uno de los miembros de su iglesia tiene esposa e hijas en Puerto Rico.“La triste historia es que personas en Orlando que tienen familias en Puerto Rico, a las que no pueden llegar ni por celular ni por avión, están desesperadas. En La Encarnación, tratamos de darles esperanzas predicándoles consuelo con las promesas de Dios para nosotros”, dijo Rodríguez a Episcopal News Service.Pero la ayuda está en camino. Alguna ya estaba allí o cerca antes de que María azotara la isla.El 26 de septiembre, trabajadores de la Agencia Federal para la Administración de Emergencias montan un vehículo de comunicaciones de emergencia en un avión de carga que se dirige a Puerto Rico para apoyar las comunicaciones de los equipos de búsqueda y rescate, médicos y otros equipos federales. Foto de  Jeff Sandli/FEMA News.Embarcaciones de la Agencia Federal para la Administración de Emergencias (FEMA, por su sigla en inglés), cargadas con más de 1,3 millones de raciones de comida, 2 millones de litros de agua, 30 generadores de electricidad y 6.000 catres estaban rumbo a St. Thomas, a la espera de que se abrieran los puertos y tuvieran permiso [para atracar], según un informe de FEMA del 21 de septiembre.  FEMA también situó mercancías en su centro de distribución y almacén en San Juan, Puerto Rico, antes de la tormenta. Artículos tales como comidas, agua, catres y mantas estaban listos para la distribución en el Estado Libre Asociado a solicitud.La Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo también envió apoyo de emergencia al comité diocesano de emergencia antes de que el huracán María llegara a San Juan, sabiendo que las comunicaciones se estropearían y los sistemas correrían peligro. Las autoridades retrasaron la distribución debido al caos, pero el permiso se espera pronto. Miembros del personal de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo han podido esporádicamente intercambiar mensajes de texto con miembros de la diócesis de Puerto Rico.El Rvdmo. Rafael L. Morales Maldonado, ordenado obispo diocesano de Puerto Rico hace poco más de dos meses, creó un plan con el personal diocesano, dijo Zorrilla. Durante la tormenta, protegieron con planchas de madera lo que pudieron y se fueron a pasar la tormenta con sus familias en sus hogares. El 25 de septiembre, estaban removiendo los árboles caídos en el centro diocesano, que tiene electricidad a partir de un generador pero ninguna capacidad de comunicación. Se reunieron para formar un equipo de evaluación. Se proponen dirigirse el 27 de septiembre a zonas específicas de la isla, para llevar artículos de primera necesidad e inspeccionar las misiones, parroquias y hogares episcopales.“Les llevarán artículos básicos a los feligreses y recogerán inventarios de las necesidades del clero y los feligreses. También documentarán los daños físicos a iglesias y estructuras”, escribió Morales en una carta publicada en Facebook, el 25 de septiembre. “Mucha fe, Dios está con nosotros y nosotras. Ánimo”.La catedral de San Juan Bautista en San Juan está prácticamente indemne, dijo Zorrilla.Pero tres iglesias episcopales cercanas no resultaron tan afortunadas. [El viento] les arrancó los techos y la lluvia inundó los interiores. Debido a esa inundación, Zorrilla y Morales presidieron un oficio religioso el 24 de septiembre en el estacionamiento de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María Magdalena en Levittown. Hasta ahora, él no ha tenido noticias de lesiones o muertes de ningún clérigo o feligrés, pero el tiempo dirá mientras las evaluaciones siguen su curso.La furia de María no tuvo paralelo, dijo Zorrilla.“Los ruidos eran espantosos, la fuerza del viento. Lo que vi, nunca antes lo había visto, y hemos experimentado otros huracanes antes porque vivimos en el trópico”, afirmó. Esto fue tan descomunal. La fuerza de la naturaleza fue increíble”.El 26 de septiembre, el último día de la reunión de la Cámara de Obispos en Fairbanks, Alaska, los obispos aprobaron por unanimidad una resolución para mostrar su apoyo. La resolución se dirigía no sólo a Puerto Rico, sino también a otras zonas afectadas por desastres naturales.“Nos comprometemos a tomar las decisiones adecuadas en nuestras diócesis para educarnos a nosotros mismos y a nuestra gente acerca del cambio climático, y para abogar en pro de políticas y acciones para reducir los dañinos impactos medioambientales que han sido un factor en las recientes tormentas en ‘esta frágil tierra, nuestro hogar insular’”, afirmaron los obispos en la resolución, en la cual citaban la Plegaria Eucarística C del Libro de Oración Común.La Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo ha aprendido muchísimo, especialmente después del Katrina, para manejar esto, dijo el Rdo. Michael Hunn, canónigo del Obispo Primado para el ministerio dentro de la Iglesia Episcopal, a los obispos que asistían a la reunión de Fairbanks. Pero puede afirmarse —frente a las necesidades de Texas, Florida, Georgia, las Islas Vírgenes, la República Dominicana, Haití y Puerto Rico— que el sistema está desbordado”, afirmó Hunn.“Esto va a ser un proceso de recuperación prolongado, y vamos a necesitar que todos trabajemos juntos”, expresó.También en la reunión de Fairbanks, el Rvdmo. Eugene Taylor Sutton habló acerca de la relación de compañerismo que su diócesis de Maryland comparte con Puerto Rico, una asociación que comenzó hace aproximadamente dos años.Él esperaba profundizar esa relación en la reunión de la Cámara de Obispos, de ahí que le entristeciera que el obispo puertorriqueño no pudiera asistir debido al huracán María. La Diócesis de Maryland ha estado pidiéndoles a sus congregaciones que donen a los empeños de socorro, y Sutton se propone asistir a la convención puertorriqueña en octubre.“Quiero ir con regalos, y tal vez un gran cheque”, dijo Sutton.Las donaciones monetarias serán las más útiles y pueden hacerse a través de la página de donaciones de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo, la cual desglosa diferentes vías de donaciones y brinda opciones más específicas. Existe también una sección para que las iglesias impriman páginas insertas a sus boletines a fin de que sus congregaciones hagan donaciones.Zorrilla dijo que muchas casas son de concreto y resistentes a los huracanes, pero sospecha que hay incontables casas que no resistieron. Es difícil precisarlo ahora mismo. Después de las evaluaciones que comienzan esta semana, tendrán una idea más clara respecto a lo que se enfrentan como diócesis.Un representante de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo con extensa experiencia en desastres llegará [a Puerto Rico] el 2 de octubre. Él apoyará a la diócesis en llevar a cabo evaluaciones y en planear estrategias acerca de la próxima fase de la respuesta. Como resultado de los actuales retos en infraestructura y comunicaciones, él lleva teléfonos de comunicación satelital y el equipo pertinente para colocarlo alrededor de la isla.“La Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo está trabajando muchísimo con nosotros. No nos sentimos solos. Nos sentimos plenamente apoyados”, dijo Zorrilla.No obstante, “las oraciones son realmente necesarias ahora mismo y toda la ayuda que la Iglesia pueda enviarnos, porque estamos verdaderamente necesitados”.— Amy Sowder es corresponsal especial de Episcopal News Service.

Country House in Weiningen / Salvini Rüegsegger Architekten

Built by the architects Guex and Kirchhoff in 1963, the original design of the house was inspired by the Mid-Century Modern movement emerging from California at the time. The structural elements show influence from Richard Neutra and Pierre Koenig to name two architects of that movement. In the half-century since its construction, the house had undergone various renovations that concealed many of the original elements which defined the building’s spirit. In its 2019-20 renovation, Salvini Rüegsegger Architekten tasked themselves with restoring the original life of the building while simultaneously bringing its visual and technical elements forward into the 21st century.Save this picture!© Peter BeyerThe focus of the renovation was to create a seamless transition between inside and outside – the terrace and the main living space. To achieve this, frameless, sliding Sky-Frame windows replaced the leaky and aging ones. The floor height was raised to create a threshold-free transition and the entire heating system moved into the floor, eliminating the need for the vents that had previously divided the spaces abruptly. To further enhance the seamless continuation of spaces, the grid layout of exposed concrete slabs on the terrace was brought to the interior spaces through the placement of large-format limestone slabs throughout the living, dining, and studio areas. Save this picture!© Peter BeyerSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!Ground floor planBy contrast, the private areas of the home are more clearly separated and defined. The bedrooms of the upper floor are softly carpeted, true to the original spirit of the times, thus zoning the more intimate areas of the house. A central concrete staircase connects the upper and lower living spaces where these colder materials are contrasted with warm oak flooring to welcome the occupant into the home.  Save this picture!© Peter BeyerThe floor plan was based on a regular axis system of 5.00 x 6.00 with the goal of including as many east-facing rooms as possible on a single level. Due to the location of the house on the edge of a forested hill, the original architects were challenged to create a structure that allowed optimal sunlight into the home. This was solved by the shed-shaped roof construction including large skylights which allowed sunlight to enter all rooms as early as midday.Save this picture!© Peter BeyerThe original builder was connected to the group “Zürcher Konkrete,” which included world-renowned Swiss architect and artist Max Bill. Many of the sculptures commissioned with the original construction no longer belong to the home, but through the various remaining in-built sculptural elements such as the two outdoor concrete fireplaces, the language of this group of artists can still be read in the building today.Save this picture!© Peter BeyerProject gallerySee allShow lessExplore the Changes of Time and Space in the 1980s Through the Memories of Chinese Y…ArticlesMeet the Winners of ArchDaily’s 2020 Architectural Visualization AwardsArchitecture News Sharecenter_img “COPY” 2020 “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952170/country-house-in-weiningen-salvini-ruesgsegger-architekten Clipboard ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/952170/country-house-in-weiningen-salvini-ruesgsegger-architekten Clipboard CopyHouses•Weiningen, Switzerland Save this picture!© Peter Beyer+ 16Curated by Paula Pintos Share CopyAbout this officeSalvini Rüegsegger ArchitektenOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesOn FacebookWeiningenSwitzerlandPublished on November 27, 2020Cite: “Country House in Weiningen / Salvini Rüegsegger Architekten ” 27 Nov 2020.

Tribute to victims, one year after Maguindanao massacre

first_img PhilippinesAsia – Pacific News February 16, 2021 Find out more RSF_en June 1, 2021 Find out more Exactly one year ago, on 23 November 2009, 32 media professionals were massacred in Maguindanao province, on the southern island of Mindanao, by a private militia controlled by the local governor’s family. The tragedy’s shocking nature did not reside solely in the record number of journalists killed but also in the criminal desire of the perpetrators to eliminate all the witnesses, down to the very last man and woman. The international community was stunned as the details of the massacre emerged. At first it was shocked by the scale of the death toll. Then it was appalled by the revelations about the criminal nature of the Ampatuan family. Now our common goal must be to press the authorities to allocate sufficient material and human resources to the trial of the main defendants, so that it can be completed within a reasonable time and conclude with the conviction of those responsible, both the perpetrators and the instigators. By commemorating the victims, every press freedom organization can help to promote the deep-seated changes that the Philippines needs. Together, let’s say: “Never again.” To pay tribute to the victims, Reporters Without Borders is publishing the accounts of some of the families of the journalists killed a year ago. It also appeals for a broad movement of support for the families.

Whistleblowers could face up to 10 years’ imprisonment in Australia

first_img News RSF_en Legislation submitted by Australia’s Attorney-General George Brandis on 16 July makes the Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO), the country’s intelligence agency, untouchable. Among the many measures designed to protect it is total ban on disclosing information about “special intelligence operations” on penalty of imprisonment. Paragraph 35P, entitled “Unauthorised disclosure of Information” states: “(1) a person commits an offence if (a) the person discloses information; and (b) the information relates to a special intelligence operation. Penalty: Imprisonment for five years.”Article 19 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, of which Australia is a signatory, allows national security as legitimate grounds for restricting freedom of information but on the other hand General Comment 34 by the UN Human Rights Committee on article 19 says these restrictions must be closely regulated, exceptional, specific and justified. The law should not make the link between national security and special intelligence operations a matter of routine. It is up to the government to demonstrate to the courts on each occasion that such operations are essential from a security standpoint and the dissemination of information about them could affect national security. “We call on the attorney-general to scrap this bill, which is far too restrictive to be amended appropriately.” News The national interest is invoked more and more at the expense of the public interest. The bill submitted by Brandis would be a serious blow to freedom of information and stands in contradiction to international treaties that Australia has signed.The draft, entitled “National Security Legislation Amendment Bill”, provides for a new offence, liable to five years’ imprisonment, for anyone who discloses information without authorization about “special intelligence operations”. The sentence can be increased to 10 years if the information “endangers the health or safety of any person or prejudices the effective conduct of a special intelligence operation”.Human rights violations can thus easily be covered up by the ASIO, especially since the classification of an operation as “special intelligence” would require only the consent of the security director-general or his deputy.The bill will also strengthen the surveillance powers of the agency. Receive email alerts News RSF condemns Facebook’s blocking of journalistic content in Australia No more Edward SnowdensThe goal of the bill appears to be to avoid the emergence of an Australian Edward Snowden, the American whistleblower who published transcripts of wiretaps by the National Security Agency. The Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) published some of the documents leaked by Snowden showing that the Australian intelligence service had tapped the phones on Indonesian leaders including that of President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono. Their publication caused a diplomatic row between the two countries and strong criticism by the government of the whistleblower and the news organizations that published the information. Prime Minister Tony Abbott was highly critical of ABC. The station is a frequent target of abuse by the prime minister. In January this year, he took issue with an ABC report that a group of asylum seekers had been abused by the Australian navy, saying: “News that endangers the security of our country frankly shouldn’t be fit to print”. Australia is ranked 28th of 180 countries in the 2014 World Press Freedom Index compiled by Reporters Without Borders.

After Unsuccessful Attempt Thursday, JPL to Try Again Today to Achieve Fourth Flight of Mars Helicopter

first_img Subscribe STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy NASAs Ingenuity Mars Helicopter shown on the surface of the Red Planet. Credit: NASA/JPL-CaltechAfter a one-day delay due to a technical issue that kept the craft grounded, Jet Propulsion Laboratory mission managers will try again Friday to launch the fourth flight of the Mars helicopter Ingenuity.The flight from Wright Brothers Field — the name given to the helicopter’s base on Mars — was scheduled to occur at 7:12 a.m. California time Thursday. Data from the flight was not expected back at JPL until roughly three hours later, at 10:21 a.m.Just before noon, however, JPL announced the flight had not occurred.“Aim high, and fly, fly again,” the agency posted on Twitter. “The #MarsHelicopter’s ambitious fourth flight didn’t get off the ground, but the team is assessing the data and will aim to try again soon. We’ll keep you posted.”JPL later said the helicopter is still “safe and healthy.”“Data indicate the rotorcraft didn’t transition to flight mode, which had been a possible outcome,” according to the agency. “We’ll attempt the fourth flight again on April 30.”JPL officials said “an issue identified earlier this month showed a 15% chance for each time the helicopter attempts to fly that it would encounter a watchdog timer expiration and not transition to flight mode. Today’s (Thursday’s) delay is in line with that expectation and does not prevent future flights.”The fourth flight will be attempted again at 7:46 a.m. Friday, California time. The first data from the helicopter is expected to be received at JPL at 10:39 a.m.Emboldened by the helicopter’s first three successful flights, mission managers are planning to push the craft’s “performance envelope” during its fourth flight.The fourth flight will see Ingenuity climb to a height of 16 feet, then fly south — “flying over rocks, sand ripples, and small impact craters” — for 276 feet. The helicopter’s downward-facing camera will then begin snapping photos every four feet, until it reaches a distance of 436 feet from its starting point. Ingenuity is then programmed to stop, hover and return to Wright Brothers Field.“To achieve the distance necessary for this scouting flight, we’re going to break our own Mars records set during flight three,” Johnny Lam, Ingenuity’s backup pilot at JPL, said. “We’re upping the time airborne from 80 seconds to 117, increasing our max airspeed from 2 meters per second to 3.5, and more than doubling our total range.” Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.

Dell Technologies partnership with Barnardos extended for further two years

first_imgEmail Barnardos, with the kind support of Dell Technologies Ireland along with Former Grand Slam winner, Current Elite IRFU Rugby Referee and Barnardos Ambassador, Joy Neville today launched their local call for volunteers in Limerick. Dell Technologies volunteers at the Limerick Volunteer Drive for Barnardos at the Dell Technologies in the Raheen Business Park, Limerick.The children’s charity, who work with more than 17,600 children each year and has two centres in Limerick, needs valuable volunteers for their National Collection Day, kindly supported by Dell, on September 13th.Photo: Oisin McHugh True MediaDELL Technologies Limerick has committed to extending its partnership with Barnardos by a further two years, which will help the children’s charity continue its vital work to support vulnerable children and families in IrelandThe partnership which involves the provision of financial support, as well as the sharing of employee expertise, skills and the volunteering of time, was first formed in 2017 to support the good work and continued vision of Barnardos.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Over the course of three years the Dell Technologies teams in Dublin, Cork and Limerick have volunteered their time to support the organisation’s National Collection Day, hosted various fundraising initiatives on their campuses and in recent weeks have supported the organisation as they transitioned their services to virtual settings.Employees at Dell Technologies are always available to provide digital support to Barnardos but in recent weeks this has evolved to respond to the current environment and the team has been sharing expertise in managing teams remotely, organising virtual meetings, ensuring the organisation remains secure while the team operates remotely and general technical training.Throughout the partnership, the team at Dell Technologies has also helped to create and deliver ‘Code Work Clubs’, a new initiative for the organisation hosted at regional Barnardos Homework Clubs in Cork, Limerick and Dublin. The Clubs were set up with an aim to deliver digital skills to the young people participating who might not have access to technology on a day-to-day basis.Suzanne Connolly, CEO, Barnardos commended the “phenomenal” impact the partnership has had on the organisation and “ultimately the lives of children and families in Ireland”.She said, “Thanks to the support of Dell Technologies team members in their fundraising efforts, skills sharing and awareness building over the last three years we have made a difference to the children of Barnardos.“We’re looking forward to seeing what we can achieve together in the next two years, as we continue to provide support to those most in need, working to close the digital divide among communities across Ireland and provide much-needed help to the most vulnerable children in our society.”Sean O’Reilly, Vice-President, EMEA Logistics and Site Leader, Dell Technologies Limerick said since first joining forces with Barnardos “we’ve been truly inspired by the life-changing impact Barnardos has on children and families in communities throughout Ireland”.“This has struck a chord with our own team members who over the years have come together to support the children’s charity.“This support has been particularly evident in recent weeks as the team has worked to ensure the organisation has the digital skills and capabilities to manage teams remotely and to continue providing the vital supports to families and children across the country.In addition to the company’s financial contributions, our employees donate their time and creativity in order to help Barnardos to continue their valuable work.”He concluded by saying the team were “delighted” to extend the partnership for a further two years “and continue to support the great work that Barnardos does.” Advertisement Facebook Print BusinessNewsCommunityDell Technologies partnership with Barnardos extended for further two yearsBy Cian Reinhardt – August 18, 2020 262 center_img Twitter Linkedin WhatsApp Previous articleLimerick Cricket Club complete clean sweep over busy weeekendNext articleLimerick Post Show | Milk Market on re-opening Cian Reinhardthttp://www.limerickpost.ieJournalist & Digital Media Coordinator.
