The 2016-2017 internship will be located in Bismarck, North Dakota (Diocese of North Dakota).“I am honored to have been chosen for this internship,” McDaniel said. “To be a part of and to work with the wonderful ministries of the United Thank Offering and the Diocese of North Dakota will be an incredible and valuable opportunity for me. I look forward to sharing what I have experienced through my time in the Young Adult Service Corps in the Diocese of South Western Brazil, and to also learn more about the many facets of the ministries of United Thank Offering and the Diocese of North Dakota. The powerful reach of United Thank Offering has already positively impacted my journey in life, and through this internship, I hope that I can help others in experiencing this impact in their lives, as well as learn from what the United Thank Offering, the Diocese of North Dakot and the relationships made will teach me.”The United Thank Offering is a ministry to promote thankfulness and mission in the whole Church. Known worldwide as UTO, the United Thank Offering awards grants for projects that address human needs and help alleviate poverty, both domestically and internationally in the Episcopal Church.YASC is a ministry for Episcopal young adults, ages 21 – 30, who are interested in exploring their faith in new ways by living and serving in communities around the Anglican Communion. The United Thank Offering has previously awarded grants to support the YASC program.“We are very excited to welcome Rachel McDaniel to the Diocese of North Dakota as a United Thank Offering/Young Adult Services Corps intern,” commented Bishop Michael Smith. ”We have been blessed so many times over the years through the United Thank Offering and are grateful for this new venture in partnership with them. Rachel will be headquartered in Bismarck and have the opportunity, among other things, to be involved in our initiatives to address human trafficking, re-entry programs for prisoners, discernment and formation programs for deacons, and Native youth ministry. We look forward to our year together.”In 2014, the United Thank Offering Board established the internship for a returning YASC volunteer an opportunity to continue their ministry by naming a specific volunteer as the Julia Chester Emery United Thank Offering/Young Adult Service Corps volunteer. Julia Chester Emery, honored on January 9 in The Episcopal Church’s Holy Women Holy Men, is credited with creating the United Thank Offering in 1916.The Rev.

His house became too small for such events. Being built on a 260 sqm lot, this “get-together” house was designed in a unique way to open up the ground floor, living space and worship area to nature.Save this picture!© Quang DamSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Quang DamTwo guest bungalow type bedrooms are hung above the open space like 2 bird nests. These nests rest there in a comfortable setting like in a resort. The house is delightful with flows of nature and sunlight coming through.

Throughout the concept development, the idea of a “banqueting house” was formed. The banqueting house is arranged as a long-house, a type of long, proportionately narrow, single-room building built by ethnic minority houses in the Central Highlands of Vietnam Rooms are built with reclaimed wood; partitions have motifs from the walls of ethnic minority houses. The two rooms are like two bird nests that open up sun and wind gaps and floating green patches. The ground is open space, no door, now wall, surrounded with greenery. The whole ground space is in direct contact with the sun and rain every day.Save this picture!© Quang DamWith this space arrangement, the owners enjoy greeting the morning and sweeping the yard, watering the plants… things that the previous owners have never thought they would do with much joy, now gradually become a kind of ritual. The open ground floor becomes a versatile space.

Militant maoists continue their attacks against the media

first_imgNews NepalAsia – Pacific Nepal: RSF’s recommendations to amend controversial Media Council Bill Organisation NepalAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders said today it was deeply concerned about a wave of attacks on the media, condemning the impunity with which Maoist militants operate, two days after the offices of press group Himal Media in Kathmandu were ransacked. By way of riposte, the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) organised a demonstration on 23 December to protest against constant attacks suffered by privately-owned media (see photo). Reporters Without Borders said today it was deeply concerned about a wave of attacks on the media, condemning the impunity with which Maoist militants operate, two days after the offices of press group Himal Media in Kathmandu were ransacked.“The prime minister, Prachanda, should keep his promise and launch an investigation to ensure the guilty are punished. Threats and assaults against the media are escalating,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said.Militants of the Youth Force (YF), affiliated to the ruling Communist Party of Nepal-Unified Marxist Leninist (CPN-UML), raided and ransacked the offices of the newspaper, Ankush, in the city of Birjgunj, on the country’s eastern border on 23 December, and burned 2,500 copies of the newspaper.Editor of Ankush, Bijaya Bhandari, said the YF members had complained that “the paper referred to their parties’ two acronyms without distinguishing between them”. It was the second attack on the paper this year after the premises were vandalised on 29 August 2008.Elsewhere, the local Kantipur Daily carried an article on 22 December in which the president of the dreaded Young Communist League (YCL) in Bhaktapur district, east of the Kathmandu Valley, affiliated to the Maoist Party, warned that its members “now intended to target publications based in Bhaktapur”.Members of the All Nepal Communications, Printing and Publications Workers Union (ANCPPWU), affiliated to the Maoists, also threatened employees of a company that distributes several publications in Nepal, the ACPA. The company chiefly distributes the big-selling dailies, The Himalayan Times and the Annapurna Post. This came after the Post made a complaint about the ANCPPWU before the Supreme Court, calling it a “fraudulent organisation”.By way of riposte, the Federation of Nepalese Journalists (FNJ) organised a demonstration on 23 December to protest against constant attacks suffered by privately-owned media.The Media Society and Editors Alliance said in a statement, “We see the different attacks against the media as a serious threat to press freedom, democracy and pluralism in the country. It is ironic that these attacks should be carried out by groups affiliated to a party that won elections and heads the government”.Editors of the leading privately-owned media have launched a protest campaign in their publications with some newspapers, for example, carrying a blank page in place of an editorial.Reporters Without Borders pointed out that, “Protection of press freedom, guaranteed by the new constitution, is a key element in ensuring the establishment of a democracy worthy of the name in the country.”______________________________________________________________________________________22/12/2008Maoist activists attack newspaper group again Reporters Without Borders is alarmed by a new attack by supporters of the ruling Maoist party yesterday on the offices of the Himal Media press group in Kathmandu. And when the Federation of Nepalese Journalists today staged a protest against the attack, police used violence to disperse them, injuring around a dozen journalists.“We urge the government to take particular care to safeguard press freedom,” Reporters Without Borders said. “After the recent wave of attacks on the media, the Maoist party took no steps to punish those responsible. The government must guarantee the right of every voice to be heard by punishing violators and by not allowing its supporters to act with the impunity.”Around 50 Maoist party supporters took part in yesterday’s attack on Himal Media, ransacking its offices and injuring CEO Ashutosh Tiwari and Kunda Dixit, the editor of one of its publications, the English-language Nepali Times.The raid appears to have been prompted by an article in the Nepali Times and in another of the group’s publications, the Nepalese-language fortnightly, Himal Khabapatrika, accusing certain Maoist party activists of “extremist behaviour,” interfering in business interests and threatening the media.A member of the Himal Media staff said the assailants stormed into the group’s premises, hitting employees and warning that “anything could happen if one of the group’s newspapers published anti-Maoist reports again.”Dixit said: “These people appeared to be martial arts experts, they had military training. It was an attack not just on Himal Media but on democracy and the media in particular, which the Maoists are doing everything possible to control.”Maoist activists previously attacked Himal Media distribution depots in the capital on 16 November, vandalising equipment and torching more than 1,000 copies of Himal Khabapatrika in the street outside.Nepal’s Maoist prime minister, Pushpa Kamal Dahal (also known as “Prachanda”), today promised a delegation of civil society leaders that yesterday’s attack would be investigated and those responsible would be punished.One of the delegation’s leaders, former finance minister Devendra Raj Pandey, told Reporters Without Borders that the prime minister insisted that it was not Maoist policy to attack the media and that “immoral agents” had “infiltrated” the party. The prime minister expressed sadness about the incident and urged public opinion to help combat the “infiltrators.”Nepal News video showing the damage to Himal Media’s offices and an interview with Kunda Dixit: News RSF_en June 8, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Nepalese journalists threatened, attacked and censored over Covid-19 coverage News December 23, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Militant maoists continue their attacks against the media Receive email alerts News to go further Under Chinese pressure, Nepal sanctions three journalists over Dalai Lama story Follow the news on Nepal May 29, 2019 Find out more May 17, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

The future of transportation is multimodal, according to Ithaca presentation

first_img Tagged: Bike Walk Tompkins, downtown ithaca alliance, TCAT, transportation In dense areas, for example, drivers might complain that bicyclists cause traffic congestion. That’s “an optical illusion,” Papandreou said. Since bikes transport more people per square foot than cars with one or two passengers, accommodating bikes where there’s a critical mass of riders facilitates transportation.On the flip side, in rural areas where commuting by bike isn’t feasible, accommodating cars but planning shared rides might make more sense.“Look to utilize existing resources,” Papandreou suggested.Papandreou said transportation innovation only works if cities set clear goals, test feasible solutions and rigorously collect data.“Where are we, where do we want to go, how are we going to measure it, then what are the things we’re going to try out?”Comments from the audience made clear that answering those questions will be no easy task.As attendees pointed out, transportation modes that work well in the City of Ithaca might not be viable for people in the rural parts of the county or commuting into Ithaca from further.Coordinating carpools or relying on intercity buses can be difficult when employers hold workers to inflexible schedules, a commenter added.For Papandreou, such challenges are difficult to tackle but are not insurmountable. “We all want freedom, we all want mobility… and we all want safety while we do that.” Achieving those universal goals might be a slog, but that’s how community works.“Preparing for our Transportation Future” was co-hosted by the Center for Community Transportation which includes Ithaca Carshare and Bike Walk Tompkins; Ithaca-Tompkins County Transportation Council (ITCTC); Tompkins Consolidated Area Transit (TCAT), the Downtown Ithaca Alliance (DIA), the City of Ithaca and Way2Go.Featured image: Streets Alive! (Ithaca Voice file photo) Your Economy & Development news is made possible with support from: center_img ITHACA, N.Y. – Ithacans are eager for transportation innovation, judging by the standing room only crowd at the “Preparing for our Transportation Future” presentation held at Tompkins County Public Library Friday. About a hundred people gathered to hear how lessons from San Francisco could be applied to our similarly quirky, similarly hilly, but decidedly smaller city.Timothy Papandreou, CEO of Emerging Transportation Advisors and former chief innovation officer for the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, spoke at the event, which was co-hosted by several local organizations.Papandreou acknowledged that a small city in a rural region faces different challenges than an urban hub when it comes to transportation. Nevertheless, he said, all places have opportunities for transportation innovation. “It’s just a matter of scale.”According to Papandreou, in places from San Francisco to Ithaca the future of transportation is multimodal.Forget the binary choice between personal vehicle or public transportation, he urged attendees. Instead, imagine all the possible ways of getting around and think about how they can be linked.A denizen of Papandreou’s innovative city might walk to a bike dock, pedal to a bus station, then ride to their destination. They might bike to a carpool point and share a ride to their workplace. They might use an app to coordinate the legs of their route, or, as in a case he cited from Kansas City, a neighborhood box for collecting index cards listing carpool spots and requests.The key question, Papandreou said, “is not the technology. It’s how it’s being used, or not being accommodated.” Devon Magliozzi is a reporter for the Ithaca Voice. Questions? Story tips? Contact her at [email protected] or 607-391-0328.
