Despite average night-time temperatures of 6 degrees Celsius (43 degrees Fahrenheit), many pilgrims spent their nights in the open air, with others seeking refuge in makeshift tents or grass-thatched huts.Choirs from Zimbabwe, Zambia and Mozambique kept the event alive by taking turns to sing, dance and worship God throughout the night, amid healing and preaching sessions from the clergy.“This is a celebration with a difference,” explained the Bishop of Harare Chad Gandiya. “The last five years were very cruel because we could not come to our home [the shrine] to do what we normally do.”This was the first time since 2008 that Christians have gathered at the martyr’s shrine for the annual celebrations. Over the past five years, excommunicated former bishop Norbert Kunonga, with the help of the State police, blocked pilgrims from gathering at the shrine site. Despite harassment and intimidation by Kunonga and his supporters, determined pilgrims instead gathered at Marondera show grounds – an area about 11km from the actual shrine – for the martyr’s day celebrations.The Rt. Rev. Mark Van Koevering is bishop of Niassa diocese in Bernard Mizeki’s birthplace of Mozambique. He said that, while it was Europeans who brought the Christian faith to Africa, “there were many Africans who also helped propagate the Gospel in Africa.”“The Gospel in Africa spread mainly due to Africans,” he said. “Often these are people we have not heard of or seen. God usually uses people we don’t expect, but thankfully we know the story of Bernard Mizeki and his sacrifices, even to his death.”Other bishops who attended included the main celebrant at the event, Bishop of Central Zimbabwe Ishmael Mukuwanda. Bishop Julius Makoni of Manicaland in Zimbabwe was also present as was Bishop Dinis Sengulane of Lebombo diocese in Mozambique.Bernard Mizeki was a lay catechist and missionary to the Shona people from 1891 to his martyrdom in 1896. He was committed to Christ and to the people he served and stood by them despite threats to his life. Nationalists claimed that Mizeki was a servant of colonialist rulers, but he knew he served Christ alone. As a consequence of his commitment he was killed, a sign that those who followed Christ would be punished. Instead his martyrdom became a sign of resurrection and hope.The lifestyle, commitment and sacrifice of Bernard Mizeki continues to inspire many even today. Many schools and colleges in Zimbabwe and beyond have been named after him and a lot of young people learn from the martyr’s courage and example.Nigel Tapiwa Chigumbu is a student at the Anglican-owned Bernard Mizeki College in Zimbabwe. He said he is motivated and proud to be at a school named after the martyr.“I have learnt to be a persistent person in whatever I am doing,” he said. “I have also been encouraged to spread the word of God not only to people within my sphere of influence, but also to those in other parts of my country.”Another student from Langham Girls High School in Zimbabwe, Rutendo Thelma Madiye said that her school teaches the girls to be ‘martyrs’. “Our school trains us never to give up like Bernard did and we are trained to be determined in life in order to achieve our goals,” she said.“I just like the Anglican Church! It just inspires me,” she exclaimed.[Visit the Picture Gallery for more images from the event] Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Director of Music Morristown, NJ Youth Minister Lorton, VA Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Rector Shreveport, LA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Submit a Press Release Thousands celebrate return to martyr’s shrine in Zimbabwe Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Associate Rector Columbus, GA Tags An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Albany, NY Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Rector Tampa, FL Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Rector Belleville, IL An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Bath, NC Rector Washington, DC Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Rector Hopkinsville, KY Rector Smithfield, NC Featured Jobs & Calls Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

O2 Inside Line – Six Nations 2012, episode 2

first_imgThursday Feb 9, 2012 O2 Inside Line – Six Nations 2012, episode 2 England head to Rome this weekend to face a pumped up Italian side that still have a lot to prove in this Six Nations. In today’s O2 Inside Line we catch up with some of the England players ahead of the game. While Italy’s loss to France last weekend looked fairly convincing on the scoreboard, it wasn’t quite that way as the side now coached under Jacques Brunel showed plenty of promise.It’s a new regime, as with France, but Italy still have some familiar old faces that can give any side in the world a headache on their day. They’ve also recalled Marco Bortolami and Gonzalo Canale, adding to the experience in an already formiddable forward pack.England on the other hand have left things exactly the same, with coach Stuart Lancaster naming an unchanged squad from the side that beat Scotland to win the Calcutta Cup last weekend.“We have decided to leave the starting team the same to allow them more time to gel together and we are expecting our bench to come on and make an impact as they did last week,” Lancaster said.“Italy will be a very difficult challenge with nearly 700 caps in their starting line-up and it promises to be an outstanding occasion at the sold-out Stadio Olimpico.”On this week’s O2 Inside Line Austin and Abi chat to Dylan Hartley and Phil Dowson, some of the players have a snowball fight, and Ben Youngs explains the difference between backs and forwards.

More than half of the southern garden was used as a parking lot with illegal car port, and there maining of it fell into ruin at first. Then, we stacked the garden and the parking lot at the same planar position by laying a concrete plane which is the roughly same size as living space, and lifting up the part of it to use its downside as the parking lot. The terraced overlap part comes up to 2nd floor level, and makes vertical relation ship with the existing house.Save this picture!Courtesy of SPACESPACEFor instance, a high wall of high class residential area gives expression to the distrust of the residents who live there. These elements have many important messages to the city.
 We attempted to change the appearance of the house and the interior movement by designing some small elements. The appearance of the house will express the intension of residents requiring the trust and communication to their neighbors.Save this picture!Courtesy of SPACESPACEThis site is situated at a residential area in Ikoma-city, Nara where is little colder in winter compared to the inner-city of Osaka. But it shares a border with Osaka and the residents can commute in only 30 minutes, so it functions as a bedroom suburb of both Osaka and Nara. This area is a typical suburban residential area of Japan and designed to satisfy the orthodox practices of city planning. The inner road and the building distance are wide enough and each house has the southern garden.Save this picture!Courtesy of SPACESPACEAdditionally, this concrete plane is linked to kitchen and living through each independent passageway, steel out door furniture is put on, and used as outdoor living on sunny days.
Some passageway is made along other adjacent sites. They form the communication with neighbors as well as the plane.Save this picture!Courtesy of SPACESPACENow that someone looks carefully, each house constructed by a major house maker has a different design, but the whole town was developed in a short period of time, therefore, homogeneous cityscape covers the area. Additionally, these houses are built with LGS (light- gauge steel) components developed uniquely to lower their construction costs. But this isolated methods includes the peculiar application for building confirmation, so it doesn’t have the flexibility to change its exterior volume and the position of columns.1st floor composed of some small rooms was converted to a big one-room. Some revealed LGS columns were furniturized by attached some functions (shelf, hanger, light, clock and measure). Some windows were also furniturized as benches and tables.Save this picture!Courtesy of SPACESPACEThe appearance of the house is not only its exterior shape. Many exterior elements appearing to outside of the site (fence, entrance gate, storage, carport, post, plants and so on) and the whole of them are consist the appearance.

Known for heavy rains and high humidity most part of the year, the Caribbean side of the country host wide variety of animals, including insects and snakes to be accounted into the design of the project.

For the steel frame we used a prefabricated Gussette bolted system, prebaricated near the city, with specialized workforce and materials it’s a perfect solution for tridimensional modularity in difficult places. One of the principal benefits is the optimization of ensemble costs on site which are greatly reduced.Save this picture!© Danta CollectiveSave this picture!© Danta CollectiveShip paint was applied to the structure for a heavy duty finish, with a much longer life span and just a once a year wash to remove dust from it. Palm overhangs were constructed and instaled by local aboriginal people. Sliding doors all around the spaces gives the user the option to open it all up for fresh air and breeze to flow, overhangs all around the perimeter decks enables the use of all the house, both under heavy sun or rain.

Victory for public sector unions, for now

first_imgLate in March, the U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision in the long-awaited Friedrichs v. California Teachers Association case. The 4-4 ruling comes as a victory for all oppressed peoples and workers. It followed the sudden death of the racist, sexist and anti-worker Justice Antonin Scalia in February.The Friedrichs case affects public sector unions that carry out collective bargaining. This decision allows them to continue to receive fair-share fees from nonmembers in exchange for services/benefits; it simply means they have the right to represent their own members.The case was initially filed in 2013 and made it all the way up to the U.S. Supreme Court, which heard oral arguments in January when Scalia still had a seat. A decision in favor of the anti-union plaintiffs would have overturned the court’s 1977 decision in Abood v. Detroit Board of Education, which allowed unions in states where the public sector collectively bargains to receive from nonunion members fees that are equivalent to members’ dues, since all workers in a fair-share shop receive contractual benefits through union representation.Fair share fees and collective bargaining still at stakeWhile this decision is definitely worth celebrating, unions and their supporters should still be on guard. According to, “Dozens of similar cases are currently working their way through the federal court system, although none will end up on the court’s docket until its next term at the earliest — or not at all, depending greatly on who is sitting on the court.” (Feb. 19)Workers have been up against union-busting legislation in many states in recent months. Scab bills such as “Right-to-Work” (for less) go hand-in-glove with the recently proposed, right-wing initiatives against LGBTQ people, from Michigan to North Carolina to Mississippi, as well as the racist so-called voter ID laws that have been recently implemented in several other states.The reactionary and bigoted “Center for Individual Rights,” which has represented the plaintiffs in the Friedrichs case from the very beginning, also announced it is circulating a petition urging the Supreme Court to rehear the case. While it is not likely the CIR will be successful in its request to the highest bourgeois court, it is a reminder that the struggle to save public sector unions is ongoing.Our class can only win through community-labor unity and fightback!FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
