Submit an Event Listing Rector Albany, NY Submit a Job Listing [Anglican Communion News Service] The news that the leader of the Orthodox Church will attend the inauguration of the new pope is being described as an historic moment for Christianity.According to a report in Asia News, Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople Bartholomew’s decision to attend the March 19 installation mass in Rome is the first time such an event has taken place since the Great Schism of 1054.The Rev. Alyson Barnett-Cowan, director for Unity, Faith and Order, facilitates the Anglican Communion’s global dialogues withother Christian world communions. Speaking from Rome, she said, “It is a sign of immense hope for the unity of Christians everywhere that the Ecumenical Patriarch, the leader of the Orthodox Church, will attend the inauguration of Pope Francis, the first time since the split of Eastern and Western Christians over a thousand years ago.”Barnett-Cowan is part of the official Anglican Communion delegation for the inauguration.It is reported that the Ecumenical Patriarch will be accompanied by Ioannis Zizioulas, Metropolitan of Pergamon and co-president of the Joint International Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Roman Catholic and the Orthodox Church, as well as Orthodox Metropolitan Tarassios of Argentina, and Orthodox Metropolitan Gennadios of Sassima of Italy.Relations between the Roman Catholic and Orthodox churches have been improving since the Second Vatican Council through mutual visits, acts of friendship and theological dialogue.Immediately following the election of Pope Francis on the evening of March 13, His All-Holiness wrote to Pope Francis: “In the joy and jubilation of Your election as the pastoral leader of Roman Catholic Christians throughout the world, we are communicating with Your Holiness in order to express to You and the devout faithful of Your blessed Church our wholehearted congratulations and sincerest salutations on this special day.“Permit us also, on this historic occasion, to convey our unfeigned wishes and fervent prayers that your papal tenure may prove to be a source of peace in our world of turmoil and division, a refuge and consolation for our Lord’s poor and suffering brothers and sisters, as well as a continuation of our journey toward reconciliation and consolidation of the dialogue for the unity of our Sister Churches.May God grant Your Holiness many years of healthy and fruitful ministry to serve His people with Your distinctive humility, simplicity, and charity.” Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ March 18, 2013 at 5:24 pm All we need Christian unity at this time of declining Christian faith and Christian prosecution in different parts of world. Western Church is facing with church scandal, dilemma with church doctrine resulting declining true Christians. Asian and African churches are facing physical prosecution at witnessing Jesus as Christ and Son of God in non-Christian countries. We need unified Church as Holy Trinity is united.

We have no papal leadership structure as maintained in the Roman Catholic Church. Each Patriarchate is autonomous and independent – though joined in communion by the Mystical Body of Christ (the Church) as expressed in a common Theological position regarding dogma.i.e. If you are Greek Orthodox, Russian Orthodox or Bulgarian Orthodox your Local Church affiliations in no way alters the teaching of Orthodoxy.Leaving aside troubling differences in Theology between the Orthodox and the RC; as ‘first-among-equals’ in the Orthodox world, Pat. Bartholomew would lose this title and primacy in the event of a union with the Roman Catholic Church. While we should love one another and pray for one another – I do not see a union with Rome occurring within our lifetimes.

WW photo: G. DunkelThe International Working Women’s Day Coalition held an after-work protest in Union Square on June 30. The group denounced the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision giving for-profit corporations the right, based on “religious liberty,” to limit the contraceptives their employees could select under the Affordable Care Act. Granting religious rights to corporations is a precedent-setting decision, which could discriminate against thousands of poor working women.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

The U. S Census shows that as of 2016 the number of families with minor children was up to 14.3 million. A decade earlier, that number was 12.4 million.According to a report by RentCafe, renters with children in the U.S. increased by 16 percent, while homeownership has decreased by 14 percent in the 10-year period between 2006 and 2016. And that holds true across the 30 largest U.S. metropolitan areas.In raw math, the number of families who own dropped to 22 million in 2016. That’s down from almost 26 million in 2006, and that represents 29 percent of owner households nationally, according to the report. “These statistics show the tremendous effects of this relatively short but eventful period of time on American families,” the report states. “These 3.6 million fewer owner households are families who lost their homes in foreclosures or otherwise, they are young families who are unable to overcome the current financial barriers to become homeowners, and they are also homeowners whose children grew up and no longer fall into this category.”Other contributing factors to consider are the declining birthrate in the U.S., people having children later in life, and the soaring cost of raising a child, according to the report.The highest jumps in renting families happened in Southern and Southwestern metropolitan cities, mainly Charlotte, Atlanta, Phoenix, Houston, and Miami. Charlotte saw a 73 percent surge in families with kids who rent their home, and an increase of 21 percent in homeowner families with kids, the report found. Atlanta saw a 51 percent jump in the number of renter families and an 11 percent drop in homeowner families. Phoenix saw renting families increased by 42 percent while those who own their home decreased by 12 percent.On the flip side, the smallest changes in renter families were not confined to geographic regions. Pittsburgh saw the number of renter-occupied households with children stagnate over the 10-year period. Meanwhile, the number of owner families in Los Angeles dropped 13 percent, as owner families dropped 22 percent.According to the report, Detroit, Riverside, Miami, and Las Vegas also lost the most homeowner families with children, registering decreases of more than 20 percent. “In terms of numerical changes,” the report stated, “Houston metro saw the largest increase in renter families with children among the 30 largest metros, 107,000 households, while Los Angeles metro saw the largest decrease in homeowner families with children, 188,000 households.” The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Scott Morgan is a multi-award-winning journalist and editor based out of Texas.

Apart from the foreign nationals, police also booked six Indian nationals and trustees of the Masjids for giving shelter to the petitioners. A Division Bench of Justice TV Nalawade and Justice MG Sewlikar of the Aurangabad bench heard the three separate petitions filed by petitioners who belong to countries like Ivory Coast, Ghana, Tanzania, Djibouti, Benin and Indonesia. All the petitioners were booked after police claimed to have received secret information about them residing at the respective masjids in different areas and offering prayers in violation of lockdown orders. According to the petitioners, they came to India on a valid visa issued by the Government of India and they have come to experience Indian culture, tradition, hospitality and Indian food. It is their contention that on their arrival at the airport, they were screened and tested for Covid-19 virus and only when they were found negative for the virus, they were allowed to leave the airport.Bombay HC Says Tablighi Jamaat Foreigners Were Made ‘Scapegoats’; Quashes FIRs Against Them; Criticizes Media Propaganda [Read Judgment] https://t.co/Kj4UQZCpHJ— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 22, 2020Moreover, they had informed the District Superintendent of Police about their arrival in Ahmednagar district. Due to the lockdown imposed since March 23, vehicular movement was stopped, hotels and lodges were closed and consequently the Masjid had given shelter to them. They were not involved in illegal activity including the breach of order of the District Collector, petitioners argued. In fact, they contended that even at Markaz, they had observed norms of physical distancing. It is their contention that while being granted a visa, they were not asked to inform local authorities about their visit to those places, but they had informed local officers. Also, under the conditions of visa, there was no prohibition to visit religious places like Masjids, petitioners argued. On the other hand, the District Superintendent of Police, Ahmednagar, filed a reply contending that the petitioners were found visiting places for preaching Islam religion and so, crimes are registered against them. He also contended that five foreign nationals from three different cases were found infected by the virus. It is contended that after the quarantine period was over all the petitioners were shown to be formally arrested. The DSP submitted that the District Magistrate had issued prohibitory orders and directions were given to close all public places. However, in spite of prohibitory orders and conditions of visa, the petitioners indulged in Tabligh activity. Moreover, announcements were made at public places to ask the persons who had attended Markaz Masjid to come forward voluntarily for testing them in respect of the virus, but they did not come forward voluntarily and they had created a threat of spreading Covid-19 virus. Petitioners were booked for offences punishable under sections 188, 269, 270, 290 of Indian Penal Code, sections 37 (1)(3) r/w. 135 of Maharashtra Police Act, 1951 and section 11 of Maharashtra Covid-19 Measures and Rules, 2020, sections 2, 3 and 4 of Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897, section 14 (b) of Foreigners Act, 1946 and section 51(b) of the Disaster Management Act, 2005. After going through the visa conditions that petitioners are governed by, Justice Nalawade, who authored the judgment, noted- “The aforesaid material produced on the record shows that even under recent updated Manual of Visa, there is no restriction on foreigners for visiting religious places and attending normal religious activities like attending religious discourses. Ordinarily, a tourist is not expected to follow the procedure laid down in para No. 19.8 if he does not want to preach the religious ideologies etc.” APP MM Nerlikar contended that a writ petition is pending before the Supreme Court and in that matter relief is claimed by some similar foreigners to declare that blacklisting of 950 foreigners by the Central Government via decision dated April 2 as unconstitutional and void as due process of law was not followed before making such declaration by the Central Government. Thus, it is not desirable to decide the present proceeding as the Supreme Court is yet to decide the issue. However, Court refused to accept the said contention. Justice Nalawade observed- “The material on the record shows that Tabligh Jamamat is not a separate sect of Muslim, but it is only movement for reformation of religion. Every religion has evolved over the years due to reformation as reformation is always necessary due to the changes in the society and the development achieved in the material world. In any case, even from the record, it cannot be inferred that the foreigners were spreading Islam religion by converting persons of other religion to Islam. The record shows that the foreigners were not talking Indian languages like Hindi or Urdu and they were talking languages like Arabian, French etc. In view of the aforesaid discussion, it can be said that the foreigners may have intention to know the ideas of Tabligh Jamamat about the reformation. The allegations are very vague in nature and from these allegations inference is not possible at any stage that they were spreading Islam religion and there was intention of conversion. It is also not the case that there was an element of persuasion on any point from these foreigners.” Criticising the media’s portrayal of foreign nationals who attended Tablighi Jamaat, Justice Nalawade specified- “There was big propaganda in print media and electronic media against the foreigners who had come to Markaz Delhi and an attempt was made to create a picture that these foreigners were responsible for spreading COVID-19 virus in India. There was virtually persecution against these foreigners. A political Government tries to find the scapegoat when there is pandemic or calamity and the circumstances show that there is probability that these foreigners were chosen to make them scapegoats. The aforesaid circumstances and the latest figures of infection in India show that such action against present petitioners should not have been taken. It is now high time for the concerned to repent about this action taken against the foreigners and to take some positive steps to repair the damage done by such action.” Finally, referring to the old Indian saying ‘Atithi Devo Bhava’ meaning ‘Our Guest Is Our God’, Justice Nalawade said- “The circumstances of the present matter create a question as to whether we are really acting as per our great tradition and culture. During the situation created by covid-19 pandemic, we need to show more tolerance and we need to be more sensitive towards our guests particularly like the present petitioners. The allegations made show that instead of helping them we lodged them in jails by making allegations that they are responsible for violation of travel documents, they are responsible for spreading of virus etc.” Background Of Malice Importantly, the Court referred to CAA and NRC protest all over the country and said- “There were protests by taking processions, holding Dharna at many places in India from atleast from prior to January 2020. Most of the persons participating in the protest were Muslims. It is their contention that the Citizenship Amendment Act, 2019 is discriminatory against the Muslims. They believe that Indian citizenship will not be granted to Muslim refugees and migrants. They were protesting against National Registration of Citizenship (NRC). It can be said that due to the present action taken fear was created in the minds of those Muslims. This action indirectly gave warning to Indian Muslims that action in any form and for any thing can be taken against Muslims. It was indicated that even for keeping contact with Muslims of other countries, action will be taken against them. Thus, there is smell of malice to the action taken against these foreigners and Muslim for their alleged activities. The circumstances like malice is important consideration when relief is claimed of quashing of F.I.R. and the case itself.” Thus, the Court concluded that the state government acted under political compulsion and action against the foreign nationals can be inferred as malice. Thus, all petitions were allowed and FIRs were quashed. Justice Sewlikar concurred with the operative part of the judgment but noted that the State’s request to grant a stay cannot be allowed.Notably, the same bench had in February 2020 quashed Sec 144 orders after observing that ant-CAA protesters cannot be called “anti-nationals or traitors”.In June, the Madras HC had quashed the FIRs against Tablighi Jamaat foreigners after observing that they have “suffered enough” and urged the Centre to consider their request to return to their native places.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Next Story

Pembroke College has beenhome to scholars for over 396years. Philosophy tutor Peter King entered a guilty plea on Thursday, charged with possession of child pornography. Previously a Stipendiary Lecturer at Pembroke, King has since been suspended from his position. It is understood that members of staff were unaware of the investigation into Dr King until his court appearance. Despite terming this hypotheticalcontent “genuinely possible”, Kingconcludes that “child-pornographyis morally wrong.” The paper begins “Academic discussion of pornography is generally restricted to issues arising from the depiction of adults.” “I look at the question of harm to the children involved, the consumers, and society in general, at the question of blame, and at the possibility of a morally acceptable form of child-pornography. A spokesperson for the collegetold Cherwell: “Pembroke was madeaware of the police investigationand charges against Peter King onlythe day before his court appearance. As well as removing King’s staff page and Oxford email address, Pembroke College has offered welfare support to all students, saying they shall provide “fast-track access to the University Counselling Service”. Students who did not study philosophy were told of “a serious situation involving one of the Philosophy tutors” the same day, but not of the details of the case. TW: Child Pornography, sexual abuse Philosophy students, and all members of Pembroke’s JCR and MCR, were informed of the matter in an email this week, in which the college stated King was “expected to plead guilty”. “I argue that child-pornography is a more complex matter, and that generally accepted moral judgements concerning pornography in general have to be revised when children are involved.” King, having completed his Masters and Doctoral qualifications at Brasenose College, went on to teach at Christ Church and Somerville, before joining Pembroke College. According to The Guardian,Oxford Crown Court confirmed thatKing has pleaded guilty to threecounts of producing indecentphotos of a child between 2010 and2018. Production is understood tomean generating copies of digitalmedia. Oxford University did not offer additional comment, but did clarify to Cherwell that Dr King was not employed by the university and held no duties at a faculty level. The College moved swiftly to put in place welfare and counselling arrangements for students and staff, and alternative teaching arrangements and academic support for all affected students.” He was immediately suspended from his employment, pending disciplinary proceedings. King will be sentenced on March19th. In the paper, published in the journal Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, he argues for the existence of a “morally neutral” form of child pornography, which “if it reduces the market for abusive material… might even be morally good”. King’s defence lawyer declinedcomment to The Guardian. “My approach involves an objectivist metaethics and a utilitarian view of practical ethics, and I bring out the advantages of these theories to the consideration of moral issues such as this one.” An email sent out on Thursday read: “We have written today to students of Philosophy regarding a serious situation involving one of the Philosophy tutors. We appreciate that the nature of the charges against him may cause distress to individuals and we want to reach out to anyone who may be particularly affected.” King described his research as relating to “both metaethics and practical ethics”, and in 2008 published a paper entitled “No Plaything: Ethical Issues Concerning Child Pornography”. The college currently houses 375 undergraduates, as well as visiting students on study abroad programs from US and Chinese universities, in addition to more than 283 postgraduates.

Evansville is down due to a pump issue and the Parkersburg site is experiencing problems with the purge & trap unit. Repair visits have been scheduled. The Westview and St. Albans units are down due to staffing limitations. All other sites are operational.ODS Renovation Work Group – The Work Group continues to meet and make progress on evaluating options for the next generation of the Organics Detection System. An update on their efforts will be presented at the upcoming Water Users Advisory Committee in January and at the February Commission meetings. Spills NRSA ORSANCO received 36 spill reports from the National Response Center in November; 17 of which had the potential to impact the Ohio River. None required field investigations by staff.There was a coal barge incident that occurred on Christmas Day. This incident resulted when a tug boat pushing 15 coal barges loaded with coal struck the Second Street Bridge over the Ohio River in Louisville. Six of the barges were recovered, and at least 6 of the barges loaded with coal sunk and spilled their coal contents into the Ohio River.This incident received media coverage but did not result in any significant impact to downstream drinking water utilities and is not expected to impact aquatic life because coal is fairly inert in aggregate form. Our spill response team did notify downstream utilities on Christmas to keep them informed of the spill.Contaminant Source Inventory ProjectSource Water Protection staff participated in webinars with US EPA and Corona Environmental to introduce representatives from Portsmouth and Maysville water utilities to the efforts underway to develop an Ohio River contaminant source inventory. Phase 1 of the project, which was completed earlier in 2018, covered the Ohio River from Maysville to Cincinnati. The current phase of the project will extend upstream of Portsmouth. Potential contaminant threats to drinking water intakes are being cataloged and uploaded into the WaterSuite software which is a GIS database management system.Nutrients / HABsGreg Youngstrom participated in the Regional Technical Assistance Group for Nutrient Criteria Development conference call. In addition, staff met with representatives from Marshall University, Northern Kentucky University, and US EPA to evaluate Greenup Locks & Dam site for possible HAB camera deployment. Our team also hosted a meeting with US EPA to review results from the Phase 1 HAB RARE grant and to discuss next steps for this effort.Permit ReviewsStaff received and reviewed 7 NPDES permits (3 draft, 2 modifications, and 2 final) to ensure compliance with ORSANCO’s Pollution Control Standards. No significant issues were identified.Biological Water Quality Subcommittee (BWQSC)Staff have been focused on preparations for the upcoming (BWQSC) meeting to be held January 22 and 23. This Subcommittee is comprised of technical staff from the mainstem state biological departments as well as several other stakeholders such as the US Army Corp of Engineers, USEPA and the USFWS. This meeting is integral towards the development of our 2020 Biological Program Plan as well as our 5 Year Biological Program Plan. We appreciate the great support we receive from this subcommittee and will be reporting outcomes from the meeting to TEC next month as well as incorporating their input into our upcoming FY20 budget preparations.2017 Pool ReportsThe 2017 Pool Reports including the one page summary documents for New Cumberland, Meldahl, and Newburgh, were finalized. Drafts of similar documents were initiated for the 2018 pools (Emsworth Pike Island); final drafts will not be available until the spring once the macroinvertebrate samples are processed.2019 Field Season PlanningThe 2019 Seasonal Biologist positions were announced with several applications already received. Pending budget approval, our intention will be to fill six positions for assistance with normal Ohio River and NRSA activities. Staff are currently analyzing a new source of Ohio River flow data for comparison with biological indicator results, while working with NOAA staff on the potential to use new models to generate historical and current flow data for the Ohio River mainstem. The scientific collection permit application is underway for the 2019 field season.Bimonthly/MetalsAn analytical Memorandum of Agreement for laboratory services was agreed upon and signed for the Clean Metals Program that will cover the program through August of 2019. Staff have secured permission to sample from the new USACE Project of Olmsted Locks & Dam. Staff will continue to substitute Olmsted as a bimonthly/metals site in lieu of the recently deactivated Lock & Dam No. 52. Staff still plan to initiate a paired sampling with Olmsted and L&D 52 once staff regain access to the L&D 52 site. All special use permits for 2019 NRSA sites have been acquired and nearly all landowner permission for 2019 NRSA sites on private property has been secured. Remaining permissions will be obtained during reconnaissance trips this spring. These necessary tasks can be tedious and thanks to the diligence of our contractual biologist, Ryan Hudson, staff can now readily plan for another successful NRSA season.MercuryStaff is in the process of finalizing preliminary draft reports on instream loads, point source loads, and an overarching summary report that pulls together all the project components (atmospheric, point source and instream). A draft summary of findings will be presented at the February TEC meeting.PFASThe TEC-PFAS workgroup call is scheduled for January 15, noon-2pm. A set of decision points regarding design of an Ohio River water quality study have been sent to the group ahead of the call. Two options for monitoring site selection have been developed by the EPA Corvalis probabilistic design team. Staff has been working with the USGS and EPA regarding potential use of the EDI flow-proportional cross-sectional sampling method for PFAS sample collection. This would be the preferred method; however, we are investigating potential contamination issues associated with that method. A report will be provided to TEC in February on this project.Staff attended an OEPA PFAS meeting in Dayton on December 18. Participants included USEPA, OEPA, USGS, Ohio State, Great Miami River Conservancy, and ORSANCO. This was a kick-off meeting to summarize what is going on in the state regarding PFAS monitoring. They plan to continue to meet quarterly.Contact RecreationORSANCO Environmental Scientist, Stacey Cochran, recently completed a very good Bacteria Trend Report detailing 2001-2015 bacteria trend data and results that shows that efforts conducted by waste water utilities and Ohio River mainstem states to reduce combined sewer overflows has resulted in notable reductions in bacteria levels in the Ohio River.Stacey manages our Contact Recreation ProgramThis has provided the data to allow Stacey to complete this very important report.Our Communications team will be working with the waste water utilities as well as mainstem state public information folks to coordinate a press release that details the improvement that our Contact Recreation program demonstrates. The focus on the release will be to highlight the great work that waste water utilities and our member states have done to improve CSO discharges to the Ohio River. Our trends report demonstrates the improvements very well.Pollution Control Standards (PCS)As reported last month, the PCS Committee established a subcommittee to assist with the 2018 Pollution Control Standards Review. The subcommittee met four times via conference call and in person and provided their report to the full Pollution Control Standards committee on December 14 to consider proposals developed by the subcommittee. Two proposals were reviewed and the PCS Committee hopes to have a recommended proposal for the Commission to consider at its February 14 Commission meeting. In an effort to keep the ORSANCO Watershed Organizations Advisory committee members informed of the Committee’s work, there have been a couple of high level discussions with Watershed Organization members to discuss some of the proposal considerations.Upcoming Calls/MeetingsFebruary 12-14, 2019 – Commission Meeting in Covington, KentuckyApril 25, 2019 – Program and Finance Committee Meeting (NKY location to be determined) June 4-6, 2019 – Commission Meeting in Richmond, VirginiaOctober 8-10, 2019 – Commission Meeting (Location to be determined)February 11-13, 2020 – Commission Meeting in Covington, KentuckyJune 9-11, 2020 – Commission Meeting (Location to be determined) through which ORSANCO conducts weekly monitoring, between Aand October, of bacteria levels in six urban areas along the Ohio River (Pittsburgh, Wheeling, Huntington, Cincinnati, Louisville, and Evansville).
