Photo: Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition, via Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Diocese of Alaska is working with a grassroots group called Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition to educate communities about renewable power sources and to empower native Alaskans and other residents to speak out on issues related to climate change.The Episcopal Church’s United Thank Offering, or UTO, program awarded the diocese a $5,000 grant this year to support the coalition and its efforts, which still are gaining momentum three years after a small group of activists began collaborating on these issues.“In the last year, they have just had some incredible energy in sort of developing this ecumenical community organizing around the issue of sustainable energy and sustainable environment,” Bishop Mark Lattime said in a phone interview with Episcopal News Service.The diocese’s office in Fairbanks has just three staff members so Lattime said the way for the church to live out its baptismal vow to care for God’s creation is to rally behind the good work of active citizens and Episcopalians at the local level.Members of the Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops will learn about these and other related efforts when they meet in Fairbanks, beginning Sept. 21. As host, Lattime is emphasizing the themes of creation care and racial justice for indigenous people. Those two themes are closely related, he said.“My vision of this was to be honoring our Native folks and their concerns for the care of creation. They’re the ones – folks who live closest to the land, folks who have depended on a subsistence lifestyle for centuries – those are the ones who are affected by climate change most significantly,” he said.Lattime spoke about the challenges and joys of ministry in Alaska in a series of videos here.The bishops, who meet from Sept. 21 to 27, will spend a day visiting Native villages in the Interior. They will listen to villagers’ stories and then bless the land, water and other natural resources.The House of Bishops meeting also will feature a presentation on indigenous Alaskan culture. One of the presenters will be Princess Johnson, a Fairbanks resident of Gwich’in heritage who was one of the founders of Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition. She also was a member of the Episcopal Church’s delegation that traveled to Paris in December 2015 for the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP21.“We need to recognize our connection to our Mother Earth and our role in being really protectors, and also that we can’t live without clean air and water and land and we need to ultimately transition off fossil fuels,” Johnson told ENS.She said the Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition originated in conversations she had with other Alaskans she met in September 2014 at a Fairbanks rally in solidarity with the People’s Climate March in New York City. Those conversations turned to the concrete steps they could take locally to fight climate change, and in November 2015, the coalition was born.It further gained steam after a climate accord was reached at COP21. Local activists felt an additional sense of urgency this year after President Donald Trump said he would withdraw the United States from the Paris climate accord, Johnson said.The coalition has created several working groups to lead efforts such as renewable energy and interfaith collaboration. Coalition meetings and training sessions now typically draw several dozen environmentally minded residents of the Fairbanks area. Education is a big emphasis, and the coalition is eager to expand that work with the help of the $5,000 UTO grant.“There’s been a long history, I think, of the Episcopal Church being ahead of the curve and forward-thinking in terms of really being caretakers and emphasizing that we are all caretakers of God’s creation,” Johnson said.Some of the trainings offer guidance for using solar, wind and other renewable resources for energy. The coalition also is training residents of the Fairbanks area to be politically active on these issues in the face of some distinctly Alaskan hurdles.Alaska’s great size – that vast expanse of northern forests, mountains and far-flung cities and villages – poses political challenges, especial for Alaskans living in native villages. Adding their voices to debates on oil drilling, clean water and wilderness preservation isn’t as easy as hopping in a car and driving to the statehouse. Alaska’s capital, Juneau, isn’t even reachable by road, and flights across the state can become cost-prohibitive.The Fairbanks Climate Action Coalition has found success in organizing trips to Juneau for members. Last year, it cobbled together enough donations to fly a 14-person delegation more than 600 miles to the state capital to meet with lawmakers and voice their opposition to a state resolution supporting opening the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge to oil drilling.Johnson said such face-to-face interaction is effective in conveying to lawmakers how environmental issues have a direct impact on indigenous people’s ability to live off the land and protect their way of life. The coalition hopes to be able to organize more such trips in the future.The coalition and the diocese also are careful not to vilify the oil industry. The economic reality is that the oil industry dominates the state economy. The coalition instead talks of a “just transition” toward a new economic model and away from the use of fossil fuels that is making climate change worse.“Their hope is slowly, bit by bit, to get interior Alaska transitioned to using alternative forms of energy production, even at the village level,” Lattime said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

They just want to ensure their eventual demise. So…all the jobs lost from the oil industry would be replaced by jobs building and maintaining wind farms? I must do some more research into what a just transition to a different energy economy would look like in the contect of a state heavily tied to one industry.

Gary Graham finds fairly unique way to beat three players with the same move

first_imgFriday Jan 12, 2018 Gary Graham finds fairly unique way to beat three players with the same move Newcastle Falcons flanker Gary Graham channeled his inner Joe Rokocoko last weekend as he mastered a highly effective way to beat defenders. His carry in midfield included three fluid movements that somehow worked, allowing him to make crucial yards up field. It definitely was reminiscent of great winger Rokocoko, who made it a bit of a trademark in his early years. Hats off to Graham though. As bizarre as it might have looked, he executed all three spins and fends perfectly.There has been a lot of talk about if the Scot will play in this year’s Six Nations, and more importantly, which team he will play for after he was recently called up to England’s training squad.WATCH: Sinoti Sinoti incredible solo try from this matchHis father, George, played 25 times for Scotland between 1997 and 2002, and is now head coach of Hawick. Gary says that his father is fully supportive of him, no matter what happens.“My dad was my rugby hero and I always hoped I would be something like him. He is the most passionate Scot I’ve ever met in my life, but he wanted to play at the highest level he could and so do I. I was brought up in England and I’d really like to play for England.”Graham has played for Scotland under 20s, and was as surprised as anyone by his England call up.“I’d never ever thought about playing for England or even being selected for a camp. I’ve only been in the Premiership since the start of the season. I was happy with my progress, but I didn’t think anyone else was.“Dad is really proud. He’s happy for me.”Newcastle Falcons host Russian champions Enisei-STM at Kingston Park in the European Challenge Cup on Sunday.

Semi-interior space implied by the large square hipped roofA house should act as a shelter against natural environments and outside noises.

In the same way, it is important to provide a subtle sense of distance among family members regarding privacy and communication.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe site is a former farmland converted to residential land, which is situated between rural and urban areas. In order to maintain privacy of the house, it is necessary to consider views looking down from above, as well as views from the street level, since middle- to high-rise buildings are starting to be built around the area.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe large simple pitched roof, with extended eaves at low height, prevents the house from being seen from above. A calm space is kept at the center of the house, away from the outside noise. In the plan, three distorted walls are arranged in a ring shape, sheltering the house from being seen from outside. In the section, various degrees of distance are designed between inside and outside by adjusting a distortion between the roof and the walls.Save this picture!© Toshiyuki YanoThe interior consists of a space defined by the ring-shaped walls and the remaining space. Distances between the two spaces are diverse, corresponding to size, direction, position or thickness of the “openings” at the border of these spaces.

Majority of charity data will be obsolete under GDPR says W8 Data study

first_img About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001. She can be reached via www.thepurplepim.com. Majority of charity data will be obsolete under GDPR says W8 Data study Up to three quarters of the donor data held by charities will become unusable on 25th May 2018, according to W8 Data.W8 Data conducted an audit and found that only 25 per cent of existing donor data meets the requirements specified under GDPR.Its audit also found that one in three charity marketing campaigns are now focused around securing compliant consents, with donor acquisition, donor retention and brand building now taking a back seat. Additionally, the research found that only 35 per cent of organisations in general currently have a regular data cleansing process in place that includes suppression, deduplication and permission management.Dave Lee, Director, W8 Data said:“It’s unsurprising that re-permissioning campaigns are rocketing as charities are waking up to the realisation that much of their data will be useless come May 2018. However, what is crucial moving forwards is that the opted in data is quality checked and well maintained, otherwise it risks becoming uncompliant and unusable. The fact that two thirds of organisations are currently failing to regularly refresh their data speaks volumes and under GDPR is something that is going to have to change.”  185 total views,  1 views today Advertisement AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5  186 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Tagged with: data GDPR Research / statistics Melanie May | 18 September 2017 | Newslast_img read more

CBC to EPA: Commit to the RFS

The rules are due to be finalized on November 30, 2015 and the biofuels industry is calling on the EPA to uphold the law and bring the RFS back into compliance with renewable volume obligations (RVOs).The CBC members point out in the letter the benefits of the RFS to the environment and economy, as well as how renewable fuel including cellulosic and advanced biofuels are reducing greenhouse gas emissions.As Politico points out, there is dissension among the Congressional Black Caucus ranks. Last year the Caucus sent a letter urging the EPA to lower the amount of corn-based ethanol. Today, 16 members have broken from their group and are now calling on more renewable fuel to be blended under the RFS. The members include: Rep. Payne; Rep. Clarke; Rep. Holmes Norton; Rep. Hastings; Rep. Bishop; Rep. Lee; Rep. Brown; Rep. Davis; Rep. Cleaver; Rep. Rangel; Rep. Johnson; Rep. Adams; Rep. Kelly; Rep. Butterfield; Rep. Carson; and Rep.

Access to information to get boost from declassification of dictatorship’s files

first_img The Bolivian armed forces have finally agreed to declassify the military dictatorship’s archives, defence minister Rubén Saavedra announced yesterday. The decision represents a major advance for the right of access to public information and the collective memory process.Last February, the army high command refused to cooperate with Milton Mendoza, the head of a civilian commission that is investigating 156 disappearances and murders during Gen. Luis García Meza’s 1980-81 military dictatorship, including the assassination of journalist and opposition member Marcelo Quiroga Santa Cruz. Its refusal was flagrant violation of a judicial order.The release of the archives is expected to help identify the military officers involved in serious human rights violations committed after a July 1980 coup. ———————————————-18.02.10 – Army should allow access to information and open the files of the dictatorships RSF_en Organisation BoliviaAmericas News February 1, 2018 Find out more Covid-19 emergency laws spell disaster for press freedom Bolivian journalist hounded after accusing boss of sexual harassment Help by sharing this information Receive email alerts News November 18, 2016 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders today condemned as outrageous the refusal by the army chief of staff to give way to a prosecutor’s request for access to part of the archives of the military dictatorships on the crucial subject of disappearances.“We support the initiative of the Evo Morales government, announced this week, to declassify military files relating to a period on which light should be shed and which journalists and citizens have the right to be informed about. The army must give way to the demands of access to information”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. A civil commission, headed by prosecutor Milton Mendoza is investigating 156 disappearances during the era of Bolivia’s military regimes, particularly of General Hugo Banzer (1971-1978) and Colonel Luis García Meza (1980-1981). Mendoza yesterday went to the army chief of staff headquarters in La Paz and came out one hour later complaining of an “obstruction of the investigation process” on the part of the high command. The same day, shortly after the unsuccessful visit, defence minister, Rubén Saavedra, stressed that the armed forces had received a judicial instruction obliging them to cooperate. The law has therefore been flouted. Most of the disappearances took place under the dictatorship of Luis García Meza, who took power in a coup in July 1980. He was sentenced to 30 years for these crimes and has been in jail for 13 years. It is essential that all the countries previously under the yoke of the Condor Plan (Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Paraguay, and Uruguay) pass access to information legislation requiring their military institutions to respond to requests from the press, the justice system and civil society organisations. It is not just a question of the freedom to inform but also of collective memory. Argentina took this step on 6 January 2010 through a government decree. In Brazil, the government-sponsored “Historical Memory Project” has led to a partial declassification of military archives while awaiting a global law. In Uruguay, access to information has been eased by a law passed in 2008 but the press continues to come up against obstructions and hostility of an army that remains reluctant to see the airing of past crimes.

Limerick food has a roadmap for success

first_imgProceedures and appointments cancelled again at UHL RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR No vaccines in Limerick yet Conn Murray, Minister Jan O’Sullivan, Deputy Mayor Cllr Gerald Mitchell and Eamon Ryan joined to launch the new Limerick Food Strategy 2016 – 2018Andrew [email protected] up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up A NEW blueprint outlining Limerick’s food strategy for the next three years was launched this Monday for the local food community to take forward as a roadmap to enhance “our food reputation and for Limerick to become a recognised food destination”.Food producers and suppliers gathered at the Strand Hotel to hear details of the ‘Limerick City and County Council Food Strategy for Limerick 2016-2018’, which is targeting 6 per cent additional growth for the local food tourism sector and 10 per cent additional sales growth for producers.Consultant James Burke, commissioned to carry out the study on behalf of Local Enterprise Office Limerick told the launch that the aim of the publication was to conduct and a review of the food industry in Limerick with a view to outlining a roadmap for the future. The process behind the creation of the strategy came about by “taking stock of the situation to hand, listening to the stakeholders in the region, interpret their views, concerns and visions and put them together in a strategy for the future”, Mr Burke explained. To that end, the Vision to enhance Limerick’s reputation for great food and to build on existing support structures designed to help maximise the economic prosperity for its food stakeholders, was born.Addressing the launch of the plan, Mr Burke said that it was up to the local community to take ownership of the new strategy and realise its full potential.“Something good and very big is happening in Limerick and now you have the framework to march forward with it, Mr Burke told industry representatives, food producers and councillors at the Limerick Strand Hotel.At a lunch celebrating the best of Limerick produce, Minister for Education and Skills, Deputy Jan O’Sullivan officially launched the food strategy by congratulating all involved and noting that some 86 new jobs would be created over the three year life time of the plan. “Food exports off this island are exceeding €10bn and this strategic plan, along with a number of other initiatives, will energize the community even further”, Minister O’Sullivan added. Noting the heritage and fame of some of Limerick’s finest produce such as Limerick ham, Minister O’Sullivan said that implementation of the plan could see Limerick become a fully recognised food destination.The three year plan is set to focus of both short and long term objectives including the formulation of a food community network, a full food calendar of events, improvement of business skill sets and educating the community as to Limerick’s food story and strategy.“The breadth and scale of activity ongoing in the local food sector will be complemented by the launch of the Limerick Food Strategy,” stated Minister O’Sullivan adding that “The Irish food landscape has changed dramatically over the last decade with significant growth recorded in new producers starting up with a general focus on locally sourced food on menus in restaurants and hotels. The food tourism sector has also grown considerably with many visitors to Ireland citing the food experience as one of the outstanding features of their time in Ireland.”Research conducted during the preparation of the Strategy indicated that Limerick had many strengths in its food sector including the improved diversity in Limerick’s food offering in recent years, a growing food producer base, new emerging food festivals and new enthusiasm from food stakeholders. The research also highlighted some weaknesses including a small number of speciality producers and the absence of “joined up thinking” with regard to developing the food sector.A full copy of the report may be downloaded from www.limerick.ie/council and the Local Enterprise Office Limerick website, www.localenterprise.ie/Limerick TAGSfeatured Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended Linkedin Shannondoc operating but only by appointment Print Advertisementcenter_img First Irish death from Coronavirus Email Facebook Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April Twitter Previous articleLimerick’s €500,000 lottery winner running out of timeNext articleThe art of writing for cinema Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie NewsLimerick food has a roadmap for successBy Staff Reporter – February 8, 2016 892 WhatsApplast_img read more

Redfin found that on average, homes listed on Thursday sold for an average of $3,015 more than homes listed on Monday, and sell faster, too.Home listed on Thursday can sell an average of 5 days faster than homes listed on Sunday. According to Redfin, Thursday is such a good day to sell due to weekend sales. The report notes that with most buyers shopping for homes on the weekends, Thursday listing will still be fresh in their mind into the weekend.“Psychologists have found that people tend to remember the last information they saw the best,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “If you list on a Thursday, buyers will be more likely to see your listing as a ‘new home for you‘ right before they go out and tour over the weekend.”If you list on Friday, it may be too late for a buyer to see your home online, and earlier in the week, new listings may push those out of the way as the weekend shoppers start looking. For a home listed at $500,000, listing on a Thursday instead of Monday could mean a difference of $3,700 in your final sale price.In this spring’s hot buyer’s market, however, the day of the week a home is listed has mattered less than normal.“When homebuyer demand far outpaces the supply of homes and nearly every home sells quickly and at or above list price, factors like which day a home is listed are less important,” Redinf noted. According to Redfin, the market this year is not as easy for sellers, with the median time on market has shot up to 59 days as of February.Find the report from Redfin here.
