But, for all parties involved, this program has turned out to mean much more than a simple exchange.“We heard about this program at a meeting of the College Hill Summit, a meeting of neighborhood leaders,” says parishioner Mary McLain. “The Citizens on Patrol explained that this would be an opportunity to help people come back into the community as good citizens. They explained that the parolees are mostly sex offenders. Not many organizations can or are willing to work with them, but Grace said, ‘Sure, we can do that!’”The paroleees started with clearing brush, litter control, grass cutting, and planting flowers and bushes donated by parishioners. When winter came, the work moved inside.“Junk got moved and stored; rooms were cleared and painted,” McLain said.From the beginning, after the morning’s work was finished, parishioners provided the workers with a hot meal. “The guys (mostly guys) were especially appreciative of the meal,” said McLain. “Their appreciation was nice, but we thought nothing more of it until the parole officer explained that for many of them, this was the only hot, home-cooked meal they had all month.”The parish began to build relationships with the workers.“We cooked more food,” McLain said. “We made sure they could take leftovers with them. We sat and ate together and learned their names. The food provided a common topic of conversation, of what our mothers and grandmothers made for us. They talked of the meals they were able to concoct from canteen offerings and share on the inside. They began to lead the prayers before the meal.”Parishioners soon learned what chores the parolees did and did not like to do, finding that they were particularly proud of seeing flowers they had planted come up the next year. One worker took photos to show off to his friends.“When we needed a Sunday school room painted before the program year began, they worked liked beavers to get it done and wanted to know how the kids liked it,” said McLain. “They have stayed beyond their three hours to finish cutting the grass.”Unexpected talents emerged, she said; one worker fixed the hinges on a donated piano, repaired a faulty valve on the boiler, and built a new base for a water-damaged cabinet.“We are a small church so their contribution of labor means a lot to us,” said McLain. “They help us, and we try to help them.

Friday Funnies – Henry Seniloli’s premature showboating costs Treviso a try

first_imgFriday May 22, 2015 Friday Funnies – Henry Seniloli’s premature showboating costs Treviso a try A little bit of showmanship can be harmless, but on occassion it puts you in a position to really end up with egg on your face. This is what happened with Treviso’s Henry Seniloli last weekend, and his finger pointing try celebration came a little early against the Scarlets.The Fiji capped number nine was on the way to finishing an excellent team try, but just seconds after doing a Delon Armitage/George North point at Scott Williams, he was held up, lost the ball and injured himself in the process. Ouch. And the injury probably hurt too.It was a great effort from Williams to stop the try, but Seniloli’s shameless showboating was to blame, and it was a gaff that arguably cost his side the game.They were leading 13-3 at the time, but went down 17-13 in the end. You can view highlights from the match, and all the others, in our PRO12 highlights wrap from Round 22.It’s not the first time we’ve seen players showboating then mess up, and it definitely won’t be the last.

Due to a 12m wide glazed facade on the south side the main living area relates directly to the water. The house grants access via a patio facing the street and marking the threshold between public and private. The unusual materialisation of white painted raw timber boards of Douglas fir underlines the compelling power of simple things.Save this picture!Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessStoaninger Mühlviertel Destillation / HPSASelected ProjectsMirador Pocuro Building / SEARLE PUGA arquitectosSelected Projects Share Architects: Pasel.Kuenzel Architects Area Area of this architecture project Urban Villa / Pasel.Kuenzel ArchitectsSave this projectSaveUrban Villa / Pasel.Kuenzel Architects Year:  Photographs Projects Area:  307 m² Area:  307 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project CopyAbout this officePasel.Kuenzel ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesAmsterdamHousesThe NetherlandsPublished on October 11, 2013Cite: “Urban Villa / Pasel.Kuenzel Architects” 11 Oct 2013.

The office then focused on designing two custom-made windows that could be built and prefabricated by the architects for those two spaces and purposes.Save this picture!SectionOne window to look towards the outside fields while working and one window to look towards the sky when resting or falling asleep. Another goal with the design was to redefine the idea of a window as a flat ready-made glass piece into an architectural element that creates its own space with a clear focus towards the outside.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThis goal led to the design of a sky tower one can crawl into when being in bed totally dedicated to the sky and one corner window with a desk inserted to it that creates a work space on the inside and table for flowers on the outside with a clear focus and direction to the outside field.Save this picture!Cross SectionThe Sky TowerLooking towards a starry sky when falling asleep is a countryside luxury. We wanted to enhance that feeling by making a round tower dedicated to that view where you can lay down in bed and only see and focus on the sky above. At day time the tower takes in a lot of light and is a good place to sit and read. At night time it is the perfect place to study the stars and space.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThe outside of the tower is cladded with overlapping boards. There is a local tradition of making jig saw patterns in this type of façade so we decided to design a pattern of big animals, amphibians, birds, flowers and fishes that are living in the archipelago and the Baltic Sea.Save this picture!Courtesy of Anders Berensson ArchitectsThe Desk windowThe Stockholm archipelago is known for its fantastic flora of wild flowers, outside the house lies a meadow with many of the species represented. We designed this window to focus on this local treasury. The spruce board ceiling continues seamlessly above the window and protrudes long enough to cover the sky and direct sun light framing a view towards the meadow. A desk is inserted through the corner window.Save this picture!PlanOn the outside the desk I made out of terracotta red concrete with holes for flowers to grow. The inside of the desk is made of birch plywood with holes cut out for different purposes. The biggest hole is for sitting in the corner looking out. A bench going under the desk in the corner creates divan type of chair where the whole becomes the armrest. The mid-size holes are for ventilation, cables, lamps, and pencils, the tiny holes are pencil sharpeners.Project gallerySee allShow lessHeatherwick Studio Released New Construction Images and Video of the 1000 Trees Proj…Architecture NewsGerman Street Artist 1010 Creates Cave-Like Illusions in Unexpected PlacesArchitecture News Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAnders Berensson ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentOtherSmall ScaleExtensionGräsköSwedenPublished on August 10, 2017Cite: “Look Out Lodge / Anders Berensson Architects” 10 Aug 2017.

first_imgCommunity Foundation NI made commitments of £9 million The Community Foundation for Northern Ireland approved grants to community and voluntary organisations worth over £9 million in 2015/16.The Foundation received 465 applications for funding and approved grants to 265 projects, an approval rate of 57%. Actual payments made in 2015/16 totalled £2.7 million, down from £3.6 million.As well as distributing funds from its own endowment, the Foundation administers a number of major grant programmes for the Big Lottery, EU Peace Programme and Atlantic Philanthropies.Income in 2016 was considerable down on the figure for 2015, from £10 million to £3.8 million. This was due to reductions in support from major sources such as the Atlantic Philanthropies, which has restricted its giving to earlier commitments, EU Peace Programme and Big Lottery. In 2015 Atlantic Philanthropies, for instance, provided £4.4 million against £317,000 in 2016.The Foundation also administers grant programmes for a number of individual donors and the private sector.

Independent weekly suspended for three months

first_img RwandaAfrica April 6, 2020 Find out more News Organisation November 27, 2020 Find out more News Follow the news on Rwanda Reporters Without Borders firmly condemns the High Media Council’s decision on 5 August to ask the information ministry to close the independent weekly Umuseso for three months for likening the current government to the one that was in power in the run-up to the 1994 genocide.“The already limited space for expressing opinions is shrinking away in this country without press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Umuseso’s temporary closure, coming after the suspension of the BBC’s Kinyarwanda-language broadcasts, will restrict Rwandan’s access to news and information even more.”The press freedom organisation added: “Will next year’s presidential election be free and fair if all the media that are the least bit independent and critical have been suppressed or gagged?”The offending article, published in Umuseso’s 20-27 July issue, compared President Paul Kagame’s government to that of Juvénal Habyarimana, who was president immediately prior to the genocide. Its headline was: “Impanga? Kagame arusha Habyarimana ikoranabuhanga mu gitugu gusa” (Twins? Kagame is like Habyarimana – it’s the same dictatorship, only with technology as well). The comparison is an outrageous one in the eyes of the current government, which accused Habyarimana of planning the genocide while Kagame’s Rwandan Patriotic Front (FPR), now the ruling party, brought it to an end.“I am not surprised by this decision as this newspaper is President Kagame’s bugbear,” said a Congolese journalist based on the opposite bank of Lake Kivu in the Congolese city of Bukavu. “Kagame doesn’t even like hearing its name mentioned,” he added, speaking on condition of anonymity.A communiqué issued by the High Media Council (HCM), which has the job of regulating the media, accused Umuseso of “insulting the president… sowing confusion in the population… spreading rumours… defamation… and excessive sensationalism.” It was signed by the council’s president, Dr Vénuste Karambizi.Warned that the weekly was about to be suspended, Reporters Without Borders called the HCM two hours before the news conference at which the decision was announced and spoke to its executive secretary, Patrice Mulama, expressing its disapproval. Since then, Mulama has not been reachable.Information minister Louise Mushikiwabo had warned at a joint news conference with President Kagame on 27 July that Umuseso and another weekly, Umuvugizi, risked being closed because they had not “changed their behaviour since we put them in quarantine.”Media “self-regulatory” organisations that support the government had summoned Umuseso editor Didas Gasana and Umuvugizi editor Jean-Bosco Gasasira on 31 July to admonish them about their recent coverage of an alleged sex scandal involving the Kigali state prosecutor.

Disappointing results from Human Rights Council’s fourth session, especially decision to ignore Iran and Uzbekistan

first_img Reporters Without Borders today condemned the United Nations Human Rights Council’s performance during its latest session in Geneva, in particular, its decision not to examine the human rights situation in Iran and Uzbekistan. News Organisation Once again the UN Human Rights Council has not been up to the job,” the press freedom organisation said. “Like all human rights organisations, we are deeply disappointed that this body is still not managing to fulfill the role for which it was created. The countries that voted to abandon consideration of the human rights situation in Iran and Uzbekistan should be ashamed that the thousands of complaints addressed to the council by victims have thereby be consigned to oblivion.”“After the ‘non-action motions’ that were used at the start of this decade by countries such as China, procedure 1503 now seems to be the way for certain countries to escape condemnation,” Reporters Without Borders continued. “This outrageous situation must be quickly remedied.”Procedure 1503 concerns the examination of confidential messages sent to the council, for the most part by victims, their families or friends, or by NGOs. In the cases of Iran and Uzbekistan, thousands of complaints had been addressed to the council.But 25 for the council’s 47 member states voted on 26 March in favour of abandoning any consideration of the situation in Iran and Uzbekistan, thereby ignoring the complaints from victims. Most of the African countries voted in favour. Brazil, Ecuador, Japan and South Korea abstained. Mexico and Switzerland abstained on Iran. The vote was on the basis of the Situations Working Group’s recommendation to end examination of the situation in these two countries. Three of the working group’s members (Azerbaijan, Bangladesh and Zimbabwe) supported the recommendation. Two (Argentine and France) were opposed.Iran and Uzbekistan are constantly being denounced by human rights NGOs. Both countries violate the rights of journalists on a massive scale and their leaders are on the Reporters Without Borders list of “press freedom predators.” RSF_en March 30, 2007 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Disappointing results from Human Rights Council’s fourth session, especially decision to ignore Iran and Uzbekistan Help by sharing this informationlast_img read more
