La resolución fue rechazada 48-78. Foto de David Paulsen/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Austin, Texas] La Cámara de Obispos rechazó por amplia mayoría una medida que había encontrado abrumador respaldo en la Cámara de Diputados y que aspiraba a ponerle fin a la complicidad financiera de la Iglesia en la ocupación israelí de los territorios palestinos, aplazando al menos por otros tres años uno de los asuntos más polémicos de la Iglesia.Otras resoluciones relacionadas con Israel y Palestina siguen estando en juego en la 79ª. Convención General y todavía pueden ser aprobadas. El obispo de California Norte. Barry Beisner, presidente del Comité de Justicia Social y Política Internacional, le dijo a Episcopal News Service después de la votación del 11 de julio contra la Resolución D019, que las resoluciones restantes, aunque tal vez “no menos emotivas” no eran tan “complicadas”.Obispos y diputados de ambas partes del asunto hablaron enérgicamente sobre la Resolución D019 esta semana, pero las votaciones de las dos cámaras terminaron con resultados opuestos. Los diputados aprobaron la resolución con un 74 por ciento a favor, en tanto la votación de los obispos fue de 48-78, o un 62 por ciento en contra de la resolución.La Resolución D019 le habría pedido al Consejo Ejecutivo, basándose en 70 años de política de la Iglesia sobre el conflicto del Oriente Medio, que investigara y elaborara un plan para 2019 con vistas a imponer un “tamiz de inversiones a partir de derechos humanos” que sus críticos describieron como una peligrosa desinversión de Israel.“La desinversión no nos hará avanzar una pulgada en el proceso de la paz. No le pondrá fin a la ocupación. No nos conducirá a la solución que todos anhelamos, que es la de dos estados viviendo en paz uno junto al otro dentro de fronteras seguras”, dijo el obispo jubilado Ed Little, de la Diócesis de Indiana Norte, que fue uno de los seis obispos en hablar en contra de la resolución antes de la votación.El rechazo de la resolución sirvió como una súbita acentuación de una semana de abierto y apasionado debate sobre una gama de asuntos relacionados con el trato de Israel a los palestinos. La Convención General está considerando cómo la Iglesia Episcopal debe responder a lo que muchos ven como la escalada de una crisis humanitaria en la región.Casi 50 personas testificaron en una audiencia de comité sobre el tema que tuvo lugar el 6 de julio en el hotel JW Marriott, parte de un proceso expeditivo recomendado por el obispo primado Michael Curry y la Rda. Gay Clark Jennings, presidente de la Cámara de Diputados. Sus recomendaciones, incluyendo la designación de la Cámara de Diputados como la cámara donde iniciar esta gestión legislativa, tenían la intención de garantizar discusiones amplias, abiertas y productivas luego de que hubiera quejas sobre el proceso para considerar las resoluciones acerca de Israel-Palestina en la Convención General de 2015, en que los obispos votaron en contra de una medida semejante lo cual significó que nunca se sometió a la consideración de los diputados.La Convención General ha votado a favor del proceso de paz en el Oriente Medio durante décadas. Este año, el comité de política internacional presentó la D019 para un orden del día especial en la Cámara de Diputados, reconociéndola como la más controversial de más de una docena de resoluciones afines, incluidas algunas asignadas al Comité de Mayordomía e Inversión Socialmente Responsables. El orden [del día] especial significaba que el debate en el pleno el 9 de julio no podía ser puesto a un lado por trabas de procedimiento.“Que esta sea finalmente la convención donde digamos que no seguiremos permitiendo que nuestros recursos financieros faciliten esta brutal ocupación”, dijo Brian Grieves, diputado por Hawái y proponente de la resolución, antes de que los diputados votaran 619 a favor y 214 en contra, para enviarle la D019 a los obispos.Pero el contraste en el tono dos días después se hizo evidente de inmediato en la Cámara de Obispos.Little advirtió que la desinversión haría un “daño irreparable” a las relaciones de la Iglesia con Israel. El obispo Scott Barker de Nebraska reconoció “el peso insoportable que llevan sobre sus hombros los palestinos que viven bajo la ocupación israelí”, pero también advirtió de la persistente, si no extendida, opinión en los territorios ocupados de que Israel no tiene derecho a existir.“I siempre respaldaría una inversión proactiva en los territorios palestinos… pero acciones para boicotear, desinvertir o sancionar a Israel solo como el antagonista de esta historia ya no tiene sentido para mí”, afirmó él. “Eso para mí es una excesiva simplificación de una realidad compleja”.John Taylor, el obispo de Los Ángeles, se sumó a los que se opusieron a la resolución, diciendo que si bien la ocupación israelí “es imposible de defender”, las dos alternativas, anexión o retirada, serían “catastróficas”.“Mejor intensificar nuestra participación constructiva a través de la región, haciendo todo lo que podamos como Iglesia para levantar la infraestructura económica, social y política en Palestina por el bien del pueblo palestino”, dijo Taylor.Varios obispos hablaron a favor de la resolución, entre ellos el obispo Marc Andrus, de la Diócesis de California, quien dijo que muchos de los argumentos contra la desinversión “se basan en una falsa equivalencia”.“Todas las vidas humanas son infinitamente valiosas”, dijo Andrus, y demasiadas vidas se han perdido en ambas partes del conflicto israelí-palestino. Pero él dijo que era innegable que el saldo de pérdidas en las décadas que dura el conflicto ha afectado desproporcionadamente a los palestinos, por un factor de tres a uno. El llamó la aprobación de medidas más drásticas “algo que ha tardado mucho en llegar”.La obispa sufragánea de Massachusetts, Gayle Harris, y el obispo de Newark Mark Beckwith hablaron a favor de la resolución, centrándose en las inversiones de la Iglesia Episcopal en compañías que apoyan o proporcionan ayuda infraestructural a la ocupación, tales como Caterpillar, la fabricante de equipos de construcción, y una compañía de telecomunicaciones como Motorola. Ambas compañías ya han sido objeto de activismo accionario de parte del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia.La Resolución D019 “nos llama, tal como yo la leo, a investigar quién está lucrando con la tragedia del Oriente Medio”, dijo Beckwith.“Nos lleva a mirar cómo participamos, ya sea silenciosa o financieramente, en un sistema que degrada a las personas”, dijo Harris. “Esta es nuestra actuación, nuestra conciencia, nuestro sentido de la justicia… Nuestro sentido de quienes somos como pueblo de Cristo está vinculado a esta resolución”.Pero el obispo John Tarrant, de Dakota del Sur, al oponerse a la resolución, la emprendió con el proceso, que a él le sigue pareciendo defectuoso.“Debe haber sido un sueño, pero yo creía haber leído en alguna parte que íbamos a tener una conversación franca acerca de este asunto muy complejo, en el cual intervinieran personas de ambas partes que fuesen expertos”, afirmó Tarrant. “Creo que este problema complejo exige un foro más grande que una rápida sesión legislativa”.Durante un receso de la sesión legislativa después de la votación, Beisner le dijo a ENS que él creía que los que describían la resolución burlonamente como “BDS”—por boicot, desinversión y sanción— “estaban adelantándose a los acontecimientos”.“Yo en verdad estoy de acuerdo en que merece una consideración más amplia y cuidadosa de lo que permite nuestro reducido proceso legislativo”, afirmó Beisner. “Por supuesto, una de las esperanzas era que el Consejo Ejecutivo sería el lugar donde eso podría suceder. Esa era el objetivo de la D019”.Las otras resoluciones que se encaminan en la Cámara de Diputados se refieren al tratamiento de los niños palestinos, al uso de fuerza letal de parte de Israel contra palestinos desarmados, al sistema de apartheid entre israelíes y palestinos, a las leyes israelíes que privan a los palestinos de derechos civiles y a la capacidad de las compañías estadounidenses de boicotear a Israel en protesta por su ocupación de los territorios palestinos.Esas resoluciones fueron recomendadas por miembros de comités tanto de la Cámara de Obispos como de la Cámara de Diputados, aunque queda por ver cuál, si es que alguna, logra la aprobación de ambas cámaras. Los diputados podrían votar más tarde el 11 de julio si las resoluciones no se retrasaban por otros asuntos.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply Reply 2 COMMENTS Yes, look at Clermont, those impact fees haven’t slowed them down one bit, unfortunately. It is frightening how that place has grown, homes as far as the eye can see on the horizon. Now just imagine if all those homes had of been built with little or no impact fees? They probably seen it all coming, and jacked them up a long time ago. Now think of all the homes and each home usually has two or more cars per home, is there any wonder there are so many new car dealers out that way? You have entered an incorrect email address!

DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom Mama Mia LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply TAGSApopka City CouncilImpact Fees Previous articleDistrict website provides information to help prepare for Hurricane MatthewNext articleHurricane Matthew continues to threaten Central Florida Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Please enter your comment! Ordinance draft will be ready by November meetingThe Apopka City Council began its discussions on impact fees at a workshop yesterday to provide the basis for charges related to police protection services and for fire and EMS rescue services. Henry Thomas, Vice President of the Public Resources Management Group in Maitland, gave a report based on their study of impact fees and how they could be implemented in Apopka.An impact fee is a charge that is imposed by a local government on a new or proposed development project to pay for all or a portion of the costs of providing public services to the new development. Impact fees are considered to be a charge on new development to help fund and pay for the construction or needed expansion of offsite capital improvements. The fees are usually implemented to help reduce the economic burden on local jurisdictions that are trying to deal with population growth within the area.The report said that Apopka could charge $708.00 for fire/EMS services and $747.00 for police services, however its recommendation was to discount the fees to $516.00 for fire/EMS and 519.00 for police… or approximately 70% of the highest rate.“The reduced fees keeps you competitive, but the study still justifies you going higher in the future,” said Thomas.Commissioner Kyle Becker asked Thomas if higher fees typically have an effect on economic development.“Anecdotally, I have found that the highest fees are often in the fastest growing areas,” said Thomas.He referenced Clermont as an example.“Then if the market bears the full amount…if it’s going to pay for growth, it might make sense to go higher,” said Becker. I’m not saying that’s the way I want to go though.”Commissioner Doug Bankson also agreed on higher impact fees as a way to keep taxes low.This is one of the smartest ways to move forward,” he said. “Because there is a difference between a tax and a fee. A fee is a one-time impact and a tax is a consistent thing. And if we cover this it’s not going to have to come out of our general funds… which is going to keep our tax base low. So I lean toward the higher side.”Mayor Joe Kilsheimer returned to a theme of incremental increases.“I’d like to introduce this concept of being on a glide path instead of jerking people around,” he said. “We need to do this incrementally so that people don’t feel like we just yanked their chain. People are much more willing to accept things if they are gradual rather than knee-jerk and reactionary.”City Administrator Glenn Irby looked at the current state of some Apopka facilities, and made a case for the higher impact fees.“This is actually a precarious situation for staff,” he said. “We try to sell something we believe is palpable to you as an elected official. And that’s the reason the price tag somewhat dropped. But if you look at the facilities now…going forward we’re going to outgrow them pretty quickly. The police department is packed-in like sardines. It doesn’t look all that great either for a growing city. If this had been done several years ago, we wouldn’t be in this situation that we’re in now. I personally believe you ought to go full-tilt.”“And we’re paying for it one way or another,” said Bankson. “We’ll have to pay through the general fund.”“The worry with impact fees is if you raise them too high you’ll kill the golden goose,” said Kilsheimer. “Apopka is an incredibly attractive community. People are going to pay that impact fee because they want to be in Apopka…so again the quality of life part has to be such that people will want to pay the impact fee just to be here. So all of the things we’re trying to do in the budget that leads to quality of life consideration…it all goes together. It’s all linked together and you can’t pull it apart. It has to be one big picture.”At the end of the workshop the City Council agreed to have City Staff prepare an ordinance which would set fees for fire/EMS and police at 80% of the highest rate.“We can have an ordinance for your first meeting in November,” said Irby. October 5, 2016 at 11:04 am UF/IFAS in Apopka will temporarily house District staff; saves almost $400,000 Mama Mia October 5, 2016 at 10:48 am I am with Glenn Irby and Commissioner Bankson on this one. If you know the growth is coming and describe it as a” tsunami ” waiting to happen, don’t be shy. Most of these big time developers have plenty of investors, this isn’t their own homesteads, we are speaking of. They get the money back anyway. Whether the impact fees are at the proposed rates by the study, or whether they are set at what the recommended rates are by the “staff”, either way, is a step in the right direction for once, and will help out our city, and our city’s taxpayers, long after some of the developers have moved on to greener pastures after conquering our town. Of course the developers don’t like them, the alternative however, is higher taxes on the citizens, and this is our homes, not investment properties like their developments coming in. Either way, thumbs up! Please enter your name here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
MTA bus operator Yasmin Rowe gives the thumbs up to New York City demonstrators protesting the killing of George Floyd.There has been a groundswell of worker solidarity with protests against the racist police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.First, reports came in from Minneapolis that some bus drivers had refused to cooperate with cops in using public buses to transport people arrested during protests there. Bus driver Adam Bruch told Payday Report: “As a transit worker and union member, I refuse to transport my class and radical youth [to jail]. An injury to one is an injury to all. The police murdered George Floyd and the protest … is completely justified and should continue until their demands are met.” (May 30)Soon the Minneapolis Transit Service canceled service completely. “Many [drivers are] unwilling to do anything for the police and put themselves in harm’s way for the police that created this mess to begin with,” added Burch.Bus drivers in New York City, represented by Transport Workers Union Local 100 in the Amalgamated Transit Union, also did not cooperate with the police. A video of a bus driver refusing to transport people arrested during protests in front of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center went viral Friday night, May 26.J.P. Patafio, vice president of Local 100, was quoted in VICE as saying: “We didn’t do it during … Occupy Wall Street. … I told the Manhattan Transit Authority our workers won’t be used to drive cops around. That’s in solidarity with Minneapolis bus drivers. Our members do not work for the NYPD. We transport working families of NYC.” (May 29)International President of the Amalgamated Transit Union John Costa issued a statement condemning Floyd’s death: “Our members — bus drivers — have the right to refuse work they consider dangerous or unsafe during the pandemic; so do Minneapolis bus drivers — our members — have the right to refuse the dangerous duty of transporting police to protests and arrested demonstrators away from these communities where many of these drivers live. This is a misuse of public transit.“If any good is to come of this, we in the labor movement and the nation must unite to stop the systemic cycle of injustice, racism and hatred that plagues our country.” (May 28)Statements condemning the murder of George Floyd and calling for justice were also issued by Richard Trumpka, president of the AFL-CIO; Mary Kaye Henry, president of the Service Employees (SEIU); and many national and local unions, including National Nurses United. Calls to expel law enforcement ‘unions’ from labor movementSome unions immediately responded to the racist outrage of Floyd’s murder by calling for all so-called law enforcement unions — city and county police, Immigration and Customs Enforcement, Customs and Border Protection, and Department of Corrections officers — to be disaffiliated from the AFL-CIO, its state federations and all other unions.“There can be no worker solidarity between survivors and perpetrators of police violence,” stated United Auto Workers Local 2322, representing student workers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. For other union statements supporting disaffiliation, see #JusticeForGeorge Floyd on Facebook.Jobs With Justice Executive Director Erica Smiley spoke out on May 29:“While Jobs With Justice supports all workers who wish to form a union and have a voice on the job, the death of George Floyd at the hands of police is yet another example of a local police union that spends more time nurturing a culture of white supremacy and violence than democratizing the workplace. Police officers should not be above the law, and should not be able to negotiate conditions that put them above the law.”A May 29 article in The New Republic, titled “No More Cop Unions,” states that if the AFL-CIO “wants to prove that it’s seriously committed to racial justice and true worker solidarity, the AFL-CIO must permanently disaffiliate from the International Union of Police Associations and sever its ties with any and all other police associations.”Booker Hodges, a former Minnesota police officer who wrote a 2018 blog post on Police One, pointed out that over the years many union members have protested against police officers, criticized police unions for defending members’ abuse of power and called for no binding arbitration for police officers.“If and when reforms are introduced in the wake of an abuse of police powers. … the bottom line here is all too plain: The police do not want reform; they want the freedom to operate with impunity,” asserted author Kim Kelly in the TNR article. Citing the labor song “Which Side Are You On?” Kelly concluded: “As we once more … ask ourselves that question, the only acceptable response is crystal-clear: that we’re on the side of the workers, not their abusers and oppressors.”Struggle against COVID-19 continuesMeanwhile, workers’ struggle against the coronavirus continues. The ATU issued a statement May 27 that over 100 TWU members have died of COVID-19, while more than 50 ATU members have died. While “states reopen, more people are boarding our buses and trains. Transit agencies and governments need to work with our Union to listen to what we learned since this outbreak began. Critical changes need to be made now to protect transit workers and riders, so more lives won’t be lost.”ATU drivers in Connecticut held a rally May 20 in Bridgeport demanding improved safety, especially more masks and gloves. “We have people who are scared to go to work because they’re afraid of dying,” Veronica Chavers of ATU Local 443 in Stamford told WTNH. At least one Connecticut bus driver has already died.The Washington Post ran a detailed article May 31 revealing that more than 100 workers in the $800 billion grocery industry have died from the pandemic. Food and Commercial Workers (UFCW) Local 400 is demanding their members have access to all benefits and protections of other essential workers, such as access to testing, treatment and personal protective equipment.The unofficial tally of worker actions and strikes in Payday Report has grown to 230 since March 1, including a group of coffee baristas in Philadelphia and the fast-food workers who went on strike in Oakland, Calif., after they were asked to wear dog diapers as masks. Primary sources are Payday Report, May 28-30, which led to other sources. Information from social media via Labor Against Racist Terror contributed to this article.

A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. Home / Daily Dose / Brian D. Montgomery: ‘The FHA is Open for Business’ The Hon. Brian MontgomeryCommissioner Brian D. Montgomery, Assistant Secretary for Housing–Federal Housing Commissioner for the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) spoke exclusively with Five Star Global’s President and CEO Ed Delgado regarding the current housing environment amidst the outbreak of COVID-19. “The FHA is open for business,” Montgomery said. Delgado’s conversation with Commissioner Montgomery, including discussions on changes to the CWCOT program, technological changes, and more, will be available at 1 p.m. CDT on Thursday, April 23.Commissioner Montgomery said in the interview that while the Administration faced challenges early on in regards to the remote-working environment, Montgomery said the FHA is processing loans and getting back to normal operations. One of the biggest steps taken by the FHA and the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), was the announcement of a foreclosure and eviction moratorium of at least 60 days. “Today’s actions will allow households who have an FHA-insured mortgage to meet the challenges of COVID-19 without fear of losing their homes, and help steady market concerns,” said HUD Secretary Dr. Benjamin Carson following the March announcement. “The health and safety of the American people are of the utmost importance to the Department, and the halting of all foreclosure actions and evictions for the next 60 days will provide homeowners with some peace of mind during these trying times.”HUD later announced that borrowers with FHA-insured loans, if impacted by COVID-19, can have their mortgage payments deferred or reduced for up to six months, and for servicers to provide an additional six months of forbearance is requested by the homeowners. Montgomery said the actions taken by HUD and the FHA since April 1 are “beyond” normal protocols. “We wanted to make sure we gave homeowners some breathing room. They are going through a lot of the concerns about their employment situation, things of that nature, making their mortgage payments, other financial obligations,” Commissioner Montgomery said. “We wanted to be able to do something big that gave them some breathing room as they face the challenges ahead.” Tagged with: Brian Montgomery cwcot FHA Forbearance HUD Brian D.

The Bench of Justice Chakradhari Sharan Singh was hearing a criminal appeal (For grant of Regular Bail) related to offences punishable under Section 376 of IPC, Section 4 of POCSO Act and Section 3(i)(xi), 3(2)v of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989. While granting Bail to the Accused/Appellant, the High Court noted that the Lower Court had mentioned in the impugned order the name of the victim and her father’s name (also, the informant). The High Court took into account Section 228-A of IPC and Section 24 of POCSO to stress that identification of a child, in conflict with law or a child in need of care and protection or a child victim or a witness of a crime involved in such matters, should not be disclosed. Further, the Court referred to the Apex Court’s ruling in the case of State of Punjab vs. Gurmit Singh and others (1996) 2 SCC 384, wherein the Court had directed that the courts should, as far as possible, avoid disclosing the name of the prosecutrix in their orders to save further embarrassment to the victim of sex crime. The anonymity of the victim of the crime must be maintained as far as possible throughout, the Supreme Court had ruled. Also, the Supreme Court noticing repeated use of the name of the victim in the order under appeal, observed that the victim could have just been referred to as the prosecutrix. It may be noted that in Nipun Saxena and another Vs. Union of India and others reported in (2019) 2 SCC 703 the Supreme Court had issued important directives to protect privacy and reputation of victims of rape crimes. The bench comprising Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice Deepak Gupta had issued 9 important directives. The Apex Court had held that though the bar imposed under Section 228-A of the IPC does not in term apply to the printing or publication of judgments of High Courts and the Supreme Court, in view of the explanation to Section 228-A, keeping in view the social object and preventing victims from ostracizing, it would be appropriate that in the judgments of all the courts i.e. trial courts, High Courts and the Supreme Court, the name of the victim should not be indicated. Coming back to the instant case, the Court observed, “There was no need for the subordinate below to have disclosed identity of the victim in the impugned order, who could have been safely referred to as the victim or could have been described by a pseudonym.” The Court further directed, “In view of the reiteration of law by the Supreme Court in case of Nipun Saxena (supra) it is observed that all courts subordinate to this Court shall ensure strict adherence to the same name of victim of an offence punishable under Sections 376, 376-A, 376-B, 376-C or 376-D or the offence punishable under the provisions of POCSO Act should not be indicated, unless such disclosure becomes imperative, for the reasons recorded in writing by the special courts.” Related news The Bombay High Court (Aurangabad Bench) recently issued additional guidelines to restrain print/electronic media as well the general public, using social media, from publishing information related to Rape victim that could “directly or indirectly” disclose her identity. The Bench of Justice T. V. Nalawade & Justice M. G. Sewlikar was hearing the plea of one Sangita (the mother of a rape victim) who sought a direction to the Print and Electronic Media that the name or identity of the rape victim should not be disclosed.

Canadian company Maple Leaf Foods said last week that its UK bakery acquisitions contributed to a 7% rise in sales in its bakery group in the fourth quarter of 2006.The UK bakery business, best known for the New York Bagel Co brand, saw excellent performance, it said, benefiting from strong bagel sales and the first month’s earnings from its French Croissant Company acquisition.Maple Leaf Foods said it plans to develop its fresh bakery business to increase its earnings and expects continued market growth in the UK. It also predicted recovery of its US frozen business, which has suffered due to factors including distribution and warehousing costs.Earnings across the bakery group were helped by price increases to offset flour and other cost increases, it said.Overall bakery group sales were $355m in the fourth quarter to 31 December, 2006, up from $309m in the same quarter in 2005. Total sales of $1.3bn were achieved in the full year of 2006.Operating earnings were $100.9m in 2006 and $23.3m in the fourth quarter of the year.Maple Leaf’s UK MD Peter Maycock told British Baker: “Maple Leaf’s UK sales in the fourth quarter were led by growth in its New York Bagels brand.
