There are better and more humane ways to handle asylum cases, such as electronic monitoring of claimants for example: Matt Ouellette says: Advocacy Peace & Justice, Matt Ouellette says: Immigration, Jordan Sakal says: In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Director of Music Morristown, NJ Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Jordan Sakal says: Charlene R Cook says: August 30, 2018 at 4:03 pm Dear Mr. Ouellette:It is a wonder the right side won the Civil War without the aid and social relevancy of the Episcopal Church. I read somewhere that Robert E. Lee was an Episcopalian. Lee’s heritage was so deeply rooted in Southern soil that he sided with Virginia primarily over States’ Rights, not slavery. In a letter he penned to his wife before the war, Lee wrote that he felt that “slavery was a moral and political evil in any country.” After the Civil War, he was the beloved president of Washington College in Lexington, Virginia, and became the senior warden at nearby Grace Church. Both intuitions honored him for who he was as a person and as a Christian, not for what he was as a Civil War general. Pressured by political correctness advocates within the TEC, and since the church name had become a rallying symbol for clergy demanding eradication of all Confederate monuments, R.E. Lee Memorial Church changed its name and removed stained glass windows and statues. The Parochial Report findings show Churches in the South as one of the few regions where membership is actually growing or holding steady in 2017. One must wonder whether more recent TEC assault on everything Confederate will affect the results of the 2018 Parochial Report. August 29, 2018 at 2:49 pm Bill Campbell is right. Priests are ill-equipped knowledge, and otherwise to deal with any of these undocumented people. Even lawyers who are well-intentioned don’t always have the skills needed. There are many Americans, especially homeless Americans that these priests could help and do you have the skills to help. This problem requires faith on the part of the church in the systems that have been constructed to deal with the undocumented. Unfortunately, This seems like another attempt by liberal priests to carry out a liberal agenda. Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem mike geibel says: [Episcopal News Service] Advocacy for immigration detainees can take many forms, and four Episcopal priests in one New Jersey county have joined three other faith leaders to add an open-meetings law challenge to their efforts.The seven, represented by the ACLU of New Jersey, filed a lawsuit Aug. 27 accusing the Hudson County Board of Chosen Freeholders of violating the state’s Sunshine Law when it voted to renew a 10-year contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to house in its county jail immigrant detainees who are awaiting deportation hearings. The contract earns the county millions of dollars.The lawsuit says that the freeholders on July 10 unanimously agreed to postpone discussing and voting on whether to reauthorize for 10 more years what has become a controversial contract until the regular August meeting. The freeholders published an agenda of a July 12 meeting with the postponement noted and, the seven say, told people who arrived early to that meeting that the vote was postponed. However, after the meeting began, the board put the ICE contract back on the agenda and rapidly voted to renew it, over the opposition of two individual freeholders and those activists who happened to attend, they say.The July 12 renewal resolution calls for ICE to pay the county $120 per detainee per day, a $10 increase from the $110 it had paid previously. Radio station WNYC reported that about two-thirds of inmates at the Hudson County Correctional Facility — 800 people — are immigration detainees.Hudson and two neighboring counties are paid $6 million a month on ICE contracts and have collected more than $150 million since 2015, the station reported. Along with the privately-run Elizabeth Contract Detention Center, the four New Jersey facilities house approximately 2,000 immigrants.If Hudson County’s current detainee count remains near 800, it will receive approximately $35 million a year, more than half of its total Department of Corrections budget. The freeholders predict massive layoffs at the jail or a big tax hike if the contract is severed, according to published reports.Anthony Vainieri, a Democrat who chairs the board, has previously said that the contract allows immigrant detainees to stay close to their families and friends. Most of the detainees in the jail located in Kearny, New Jersey, are from across the Hudson River in New York. He has also said that ICE will not stop detaining people if the county stops holding them.The first named plaintiff in the lawsuit, the Rev. Thomas Murphy, rector of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Church of the Incarnation in Jersey City, told Episcopal News Service via email that “first of all, the freeholders should void their previous vote and start over, allowing for public input about the possibility of renewing the contract with ICE.”“My hope is that this free and open discussion will allow for reflection on whether Hudson County should be in this business at all and, especially, if the county should be profiting from the misery of the detainees.”Murphy said that question goes to what Episcopalians mean when they repent, in the words of the confession in Enriching Our Worship 1, (page 19 here) “the evil done on our behalf.”The Rev. Elaine Ellis Thomas, rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Hoboken and another of the plaintiffs, said in an interview with ENS that the freeholders “deliberately deceived the public about when [the contract] would be discussed and voted on.”But there is also a larger issue, Thomas said. The advocates don’t believe that the detainees ought to be jailed while they await those deportation hearings or asylum determinations. “Hudson County is balancing their budget on the backs of detainees who are denied due process,” she said. “They’re not being given the same legal rights under ICE as anyone else that might be a prisoner there.”However, Thomas said, “fighting that battle from a legal perspective is probably too high a bar right now.” Those who have visited with detainees say the argument about detaining them near their families does not carry much weight because families are often denied access to the jail or they live far away to begin with.And then there are the deaths. Between June 2017 and March 2018, six people died while in the jail, the lawsuit says. The first death was a detained immigrant and, of the five others, four were by suicide. The lawsuit says the freeholders investigated and promised an overhaul of the medical care provided at the jail, arrangements of which are still being finalized.“The Hudson County jail is just a really bad place to be,” Thomas said.The other five religious leaders who brought the suit include the Rev. Gary Commins, an associate priest at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Church of the Incarnation in Jersey City; the Rev. Laurie Jean Wurm, rector of Grace Church Van Vorst in Jersey City; Ashraf Eisa, board member of the Islamic Center of Jersey City; the Rev. William Henkel, pastor of the First Reformed Church of Secaucus; and the Rev. Frances Teabout, and pastor of the Open Door Worship Center in Jersey City.They were among 56 signers of a statement condemning the freeholders’ action. Those signers also included Diocese of Newark Bishop Mark Beckwith and Roman Catholic Archbishop of Newark Joseph Tobin. The statement was read at an Aug. 9 meeting of the board.The signers said that they are grateful to have been given access for pastoral ministry among ICE detainees and are sensitive to the concerns that canceling the ICE contract entirely might put detainees far from lawyers, activists and family. Those concerns “should be part of a public conversation about what the county is pushing for in contract negotiations with the federal government, and how the funds that are generated from housing immigrant detainees are spent,” they wrote. “Diverting at least some of these funds to immigrant services or direct aid would be appropriate.”The Episcopal Church’s support for immigrants, including those facing deportation, was underscored last month by the 79th General Convention, which passed multiple resolutions on immigration issues. Thomas said that the way Episcopalians have been formed in the church, especially by the baptismal covenant, “have led us to this point and I think it’s really important that people know that this is what the Episcopal Church is about. That’s our Episcopal identity.”Thomas, who admits to being “the new kid on the block” having come to Hoboken eight months ago from St. Paul’s Memorial Church in Charlottesville, Virginia, said her involvement is “what my faith compels me to do, to stand up to powers and principalities and to advocate for humane, dignified treatment for all human beings.”“The other component of it is that the narrative of religion, Christianity in particular, is being hijacked by a certain narrative that does not match my own.”That narrative, she said, is centered on law and order, the attitude that might makes right, protecting borders and the need to insulate and protect. “We want people to know that there are faith leaders, and there are Christians, who believe that we’re not on the side of the rich and the powerful and the privileged but on the side of the poor and the oppressed and those who need advocates who do have the privilege and the power to do that.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter. Hugh Hansen, Ph.D. says: The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group August 28, 2018 at 8:13 pm Robert Lee says the truth. America is FOR LEGAL immigration NOT ILLEGALS !!! Come to America and do it the right way as millions of legal immigrants have done for generations. Why are these illegals getting more care and attention than America’s poor and needy? They should not have ANY rights as they are not American citizens. They are ILLEGALS !! August 29, 2018 at 3:42 am I avoid saying those things in new liturgies such EOW that might be used to argue that I have unwittingly signed up for someone’s partisan political agenda. They have used the new “Baptismal Covenant” from the 1979 BCP in a similar fashion. I think much of the resistance to prayer book revision stems from suspicion that the political crazies in the church are attempting to interject their politics into our faith. mike geibel says: Rector Shreveport, LA Rector Bath, NC By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Aug 28, 2018 John Hobart says: Comments are closed.

So, which is it then? Jordan Sakal says: Refugees Migration & Resettlement Rector Collierville, TN August 29, 2018 at 4:22 pm Dr. Hansen,I find that priests can be some of the most perfectly well equipped people to deal with crises of faith or understanding or being able to lend a supportive ear and listening to the cries of their flocks. For example, I went in to my priest’s office the other week crying my eyes out due to a personal issue and she sat with me and helped me calm down and provided the emotional support and care I needed. Priests can provide all sorts of people with a caring, gentle attitude and the ability to listen to their problems. Yes, they may not be able to answer legal questions, but they can provide spiritual support and guidance to so many people regardless of migration status. We are all God’s Children after all.Speaking as for my priest, I know that she also helps the homeless community in the town I live in in addition to all of the other support services she provides (again regardless of immigration status.) The purpose of a shepherd of God (for that is what a priest is, is to tend to their flock. (again regardless of immigration status or other constructs.)

There are large swathes of people who seek asylum or are otherwise migrating who attempt to come to this country but they get painted with the same brush by the other side. Rector Belleville, IL mike geibel says: The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group Featured Jobs & Calls Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest August 30, 2018 at 1:53 pm There has been growth in many non-political, nondenominational mixed congregations, whose congregants are mostly young, probably more liberal than their parents, and who are searching for guidance on how they should live their lives, and not hearing about calls for sanctuary cities and churches, who or what they should vote for, and what “social justice issue” they should protest. These young believers are often straddled with college loans, the costs of raising a family, the daunting price tag of buying a home, and the relentless demands of more and more of their paycheck led by progressive liberals pushing for higher taxes, social Marxism, open borders, free colleges, free healthcare, and free housing for immigrants and the so-called marginalized masses. Someone will have to pay the costs, and it will not be the super rich or the corporations, which merely pass tax hikes on to the consumer or go out of business. Clergy of course have the right to have partisan opinions, and I expect my pastor to be more liberal and compassionate than I am—it helps temper my own conceit. But when the Church pursues political issues using pledge money and claiming to speak for all Episcopalians, congregants who disagree with its politicking have the right to refuse to contribute one minute of their time or one penny of their savings. I am no Biblical scholar, but I am not persuaded that Jesus was political. Others more qualified say Jesus was political, but I wonder if they say this merely to justify their political activism. I missed the chapter where Christ denounced the emperor or extorted his followers to mount protest marches or issued Resolutions advocating “resistance” to Roman laws. He never advocated government solutions, yet he was not socially irrelevant because he taught us how we should live our lives, and he profoundly changed history and the world. Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books August 29, 2018 at 5:04 pm The church may be able to provide a solution. It could house all these people in the ever increasing number of empty churches. All the priests who are so well “equipped” to deal with such problems could provide whatever counseling they deem appropriate–all for nothing!! Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Youth Minister Lorton, VA August 28, 2018 at 9:25 pm Ms. Cook,There are tens of thousands of migrants who claimed asylum and who attempted to migrate “properly” into this country under the current administration. “Illegals” are not getting more care or attention or rights than the poor/destitute of the United States of America. Perhaps you should look at the politics of certain parties (namely the Republicans) who choose to destroy the working class, the middle class, and the poor with their policies instead of helping them. Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA william dailey says: August 30, 2018 at 9:27 am ENS recently has published 3 articles on immigration protests in the tiny, liberal states of New Hampshire and New Jersey, but has made only passing reference to the 2017 Parochial Report disclosing another loss of 32,000+ members nationwide. It is big news that a few clergy and parishioners are protesting the detention of illegals, and big news that local clergy have joined with the ACLU in a lawsuit seeking to prevent Hudson County from renewing its contract to house illegals in the county jail facilities. In the last three years, the Episcopal Church as lost over 100,000 members. Average Sunday Attendance is down to 55 members per church, and these numbers are inaccurate. Clergy are counted as part of the ASA, and if there are two or more services, they get to be counted twice or 3 times. Average pledge was up 1.7% (about $100 per pledge), but even this was not enough to keep pace with the rate of inflation at 2.1%. 72% of all churches have an ASA of less than 100 members. For a Church that claims to have 1.7 million baptized members, only 556,744 (less than 1/3rd) usually show up on Sunday. The exodus from the pews cannot be explained by age or death or the rise in secularism alone. 2017 showed a church-wide a loss of 33,768 souls—all these people did not die. The focus of the Church is no borders, no jails, no guns, no pipelines, no Israel and now “no detention centers for illegal aliens.” Moral elitists claim it is their Christian duty to instruct the faithful in their more enlightened political views, preaching reckless compassion with no semblance of common sense, fiscal accountability, public safety, or the Rule of Law. It is an odd marketing plan to demonize conservative congregants, and then be surprised when they don’t come to Church on the following Sunday. Rector Knoxville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT August 29, 2018 at 11:34 am It is sad that some Priests do not focus on their own church attendees. They should leave the problem of illegals up to the people that are paid to deal with the situation. Rector Hopkinsville, KY August 30, 2018 at 10:10 am So then what do you think the church should do about declining membership? I assume your solution isn’t to marginalize progressive members instead. Should the church instead just be completely apolitical (and thus socially irrelevant), like it was when it took no stance on slavery in the Civil War era? I agree that TEC should be taking steps to correct this problem (I think its renewed focus on evangelism is an encouraging first step, but more action is needed), but I do not agree that becoming silent on social justice issues which make either the secular left or right upset is the correct approach. August 28, 2018 at 11:59 pm The vast majority of the people trying to enter the United States are seeking asylum from horrific conditions in their native lands. In an embarrassing number of cases, our own country is the cause of those conditions, thanks to dreadful foreign policies and militarized backing of corrupt governments by leaders of both parties for decades. When asylum seekers get to our borders, ICE agents refuse to let them in at the “legal” ports of entry, so they do what we all would do to save our families: they come in at “illegal” places along the border. No private prison should be allowed to profit from people’s distress! Where is our humanity?

first_imgSunday Nov 2, 2008 A short tribute to JPR Williams While we strive to bring you the best action from the present, one of our core goals is creating a rugby archive that encompasses all the great moments from the past as well. That includes looking back on legends of years gone by. On this occasion, that legend is JPR Williams. A name synonymous with Welsh rugby of the 1970s, JPR was a multi talented sportsman who achieved great things in tennis at a young age. Despite that success, he chose to instead continue his medical studies, while playing rugby, which was then as we know, strictly an amateur game. Tennis loss was rugbys gain as John Peter Rhys Williams thrilled fans in a career spanning over ten years. His trademark sideburns and cavalier style made him one of the most recognisable figures in sport. Tough as nails, JPR had a habit of making crunching tackles on opponents who would normally have otherwise scored. Defensively sound, he was also an incredibly exciting runner with ball in hand. In a twelve year period, JPR helped Wales to six Triple Crowns and three Grand Slams. He has an unbeaten record against England, and took part in British & Irish Lions wins over New Zealand and South Africa. In total, with much less rugby played back then, he tallied up 55 caps for Wales and 8 for the British Lions. In a time when your day job put food on the table, Williams unfortunately had to rule himself out of the 1977 Lions tour so he could concentrate on upcoming surgeons exams. This short clip shows us some fairly rare footage of JPRs best bits of action on the rugby field. Hell forever be remembered as a great of the game who played in, and contributed to a wonderful era of Welsh rugby.  Time: 02:50 Song: Bonzo Goes to Bitburg by The Ramones ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Although during the recent years, because of the unlimited urban constructions and the growth of the population, the lifestyle in this district has changed almost to the point of destruction of its old roots and if we consider the history of the changes in this district during the recent years, it would not be hard to predict the melancholy end of this pearl of an urban design.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiTherefore, the project of 111 street is an opportunity to change this course of inappropriate constructions and introduce a better pattern of population and building density in Mehrshahr with designing a companionship between the building mass and the yards and green spaces.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiIdeaThus, in the residential project of 111, the idea was formed based on the development and preservation of the green axis, and the recreation of the lifestyle of Mehrshahr which has several components.Of the characteristics of the houses in Mehrshahr are:-Direct connection between the house and the green and open spaces, and a special regard to the life in gardens and open spaces.-Spatial independence and the border of the adjacent residential unitsSave this picture!© Farshid Nasrabadi-Spatial diversity in the houses-Creation of a collective space for the social interactions between the residents and the increase of the sense of placeSave this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiDesign ProcessThe green axis of the 111 street, as one of the main networks of Mehrshahr, penetrates and spreads throughout the complex. This green structure, in a way, resembles the old garden-alleys with green spots that border-lined between adjacent units and resulted in a coexistence between the green spaces and residential spaces that defiantly improved both.Save this picture!© Amir lakpourGreen spaces and gardens are one of the main elements of the Mehrshahr residential complex. Therefore the locating of the mass in the green yard was one of the main challenges of this project.

Based on the studies on the view and because of the existence of negative points (a ten-story apartment mass in the south of the project) and using the existing potentials (a green mass in the southern east of the project) the southern front of the project mass, and in other words the southern apartments, with a 20 degree rotation both use the green mass and avoid the building. The rotation of the plan has resulted in rectangular balconies in the façade. Therefore the main façade of the building mixed with the rotated main mass of the building has converged in open balconies.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiIn addition to the view problem, the rotation of southern apartment has provided a great opportunity for supplying the light and the direct view of northern buildings. Although this apartment is located in the northern area of the complex, it has direct view to the main street and the green space of the city and also with the opening of its southern front, the possibility of direct lighting by the sun has appeared.Save this picture!1st Floor PlanOverall, the apartment of 111 street can be considered as the encounter of green layers with the axes of view and the sunlight.Also, we have tried, by using network connections and access between the spaces in the internal space of the buildings to add diverse spaces into the life of the residents.

first_img#J20Resist Washington, D.C.Washington, D.C., Jan. 23 — The last of the Workers World delegation left Washington, D.C., today with people affiliated with Shut It Down NYC. Three of them were among the more than 200 who had been kidnapped, tortured, detained and slapped with trumped-up charges after protesting the official coronation of the newest defender of the ruling class on Jan. 20. The state, in its eager effort to stamp out any spark of resistance to President Donald Trump’s racism and sexism, was swift in its attempts to repress anti-Trump activists.Despite that, Jan. 20 was a day of determined fightback, beginning with the J20 Resist rally at Anti-Columbus Circle, which generated a mood of revolutionary optimism that continued throughout the day. The Boston School Bus Drivers Union, United Steelworkers Local 8751, arrived in formation before the sun was up, chanting slogans and joining others for hot coffee and breakfast. Then North Carolina comrades arrived, their chants raising the energy of the crowd to an even more spirited level. By the time the rally ended at 11 a.m., thousands of militant socialists had gathered to march.The J20 Resist crowd, 2,500 strong, streamed out from its Union Station site toward the White House, frequently branching from its publicized path to assert independence from police control. At the same time, a furious, young, multinational and multigender vanguard ran through the D.C. streets, liberating it block by block as cops fell back. The so-called “Black Bloc” marched while waving the “antifa” flag, representing antifascist unified action among communists, anarchists and socialists.As the J20 Resist march neared its rally site at McPherson Square, the organizers received word that youth, many of whom identify as queer and of color, were being “kettled” and arrested at 12th Streets. Kettling is when cops unlawfully detain people in large groups for long stretches of time in order to arrest them.State escalates repressionJ20 Resist continued its march, with cooperation of several groups, including Workers World Party and Freedom Road Socialist Organization, toward 12th and I to show support to those threatened with arrest.The youth were kettled for more than eight hours. In the cold rain, dehydrated and exhausted from resisting, a large group of people were not allowed medical attention, access to an attorney, food or water. They were not even allowed to relieve themselves out of public view.After the young activists’ arrests, the state levied serious felony charges against them. This has been given no play so far in the mainstream media. In fact, the media have represented these bold expressions against Donald Trump as “violent” and “unorganized,” if the actions were covered at all.The charge against the activists is the so-called Felony Riot Act, which carries a sentence of 10 years and/or a $250,000 fine. At least six journalists, several National Lawyer Guild observers and many medics were charged with this act, along with protesters.One participant, Holly from Florida, said the brutality of the police was “completely unprovoked. I was just looking around to see what needed to be done.”A J20Resist marcher, Arlo from New York, said this was the first time he’d seen anything like it: “I understood that police would commit unprovoked violence, but seeing it first-hand made it real and important in a way that I hadn’t expected.”A Shut It Down member, kept in a cell with 30 other people who were given only eight sandwiches to share, said of the guards, “These were not correctional officers. These were U.S. Marshals.”The state’s escalation of repression was no surprise to J20 Resist organizers, who had issued briefings to explain the violence of the state to the thousands participating in the march from Anti-­Columbus Circle.Anti-protester disinformation “documentaries” had been circulated on social media in the days leading up to the march. One 23-minute film incited the new administrators of global capitalism to go after Workers World Party and the Freedom Road Socialist Organization, calling them “domestic enemies” of the state. Some “investigative journalists” infiltrated organizing groups — including J20 Resist and Disrupt J20 — with secret cameras and microphones in an effort to embarrass or intimidate.Ruling class can’t stop historyDespite the disinformation, the Jan. 20 resistance to white supremacy, misogyny and capitalism was militant and strong. Thousands of multinational, multigender people of all ages were in the streets shouting “Black Lives Matter!” and “Whose nation? Our nation!” Thousands were holding signs exhorting people to destroy capitalism and fight for socialism. They could not be pushed back, except momentarily by overwhelming police ­violence.The day after the arrests, D.C. Superior Court was packed with movement people providing jail support and solidarity. The state flexed its muscles by lining up cops with military gear and shields outside the courthouse and attempting to keep ­activists out.But the ruling class can’t stop history.The turnout for Donald Trump’s election was sparse. The threats of thousands of bikers to show up in D.C. to “protect” Trump from protesters was laughable, as no such mobilization occurred. The difference between those marching against Trump and the people draped in fur coats on their way to inaugural balls could not have been more stark.The state itself, with all its racism, misogyny, bigotry and warmongering, is Trump’s main support, not the masses and not the working class.It is with this encouraging analysis and broad solidarity that we enter the next phase of building a revolutionary socialist movement inthe United States.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

According to Irish Cement, the very high temperatures inside the kilns (1450°C) means that these fuels are completely combusted and then recycled into the final cement product, with no ash or emissions released into the atmosphere.Limerick is currently the only cement plant in Ireland not licensed to use alternative fuels.

He says that he is undertaking the round Ireland challenge in a bid to repay that help and to raise awareness and funds.“There have been moments when it has been tough and realising the challenge of dealing with this because it is a condition that only worsens,” Chris explains.Chris, who uses a long cane to overcome obstacles like kerbs and steps, says that his ability to cope is helped by learning new skills and tapping into his memory of when he had full sight.In 2010, he was diagnosed with lymphoma and Hodgkins Disease that required surgery and chemotherapy.“You just keep going one day at a time – but you have moments. Thankfully I have a huge interest in sailing and that helps with lots of very good people around when you need them.“Facing a cancer battle, as many know, was a challenge but visual impairment is different because it is a worsening condition. There is no light at the end of this tunnel, if you pardon the pun,” he adds.James McCormack, Commodore of Foynes Yacht Club, who will assist Chris in his latest sailing challenge along with fellow club members, said that he knows the postman to “be always hugely positive for almost 30 years.“This is another hurdle in his life and he will overcome it and I will support him whatever way I can.”Mr McCormack said that his yacht will be used for the sailing challenge with Chris and two other crew members from the County Limerick yacht club.Chris’ sailing challenge will raise money for Irish Guide Dogs for the blind and the RNLI.“Anything we do on the water is hugely dependant on the RNLI and we want to support them but the Irish Guide Dogs will be the main benefactors.“We will sail around Ireland and leave Riverfest on May 1 and hit off down to the bottom of the River Shannon, turn right (at Loop Head) and keep going around until we come back again”, he said.Fundraising events have been planned for March and April in the lead up to the May Bank Holiday departure.center_img TAGSChris EganfeaturedFoynes Yacht ClubGangway for Guide DogsINIZIlimerickRiverfestRound IrelandSail against CancerSailing Walk in Covid testing available in Limerick from Saturday 10th April WhatsApp NewsLimerick cancer survivor returns to the high seasBy Staff Reporter – March 19, 2017 1166 Twitter First Irish death from Coronavirus Surgeries and clinic cancellations extended RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

It is further submitted that no observation/condition should be made which notes that the best option for the victim is to marry the accused.In doing so, the petitioner has stipulated various instances wherein the courts have imposed strange conditions during grant of bail trivializing the offence.In Ravi Jatav v. State of M.P, the Madhya Pradesh High Court at Gwalior granted bail to an accused for a crime under Sections 376-D, 366, 506, 34 IPC with one of the conditions being that the petitioner shall register themselves with the District Magistrate, Datia as “Covid-19 Warriors” by entering his name in a Register named as COVID-19 WARRIOR REGISTER.Petitioner states that no such observation/condition should be made which trivializes/tends to trivialize the seriousness of the offence.Further, while imputing that no such observations should be included which reflect bias and affect the dignity of a woman, the petitioner has pointed to observations made by the Karnataka HC in Rakesh B. V. State of Karnataka whereby bail was granted to an accused with certain observations about the victims conduct.While pointing to observations in the case of V Mohan V. State, whereby the appellant was asked to participate in the mediation talk, the petitioner states that no observation/condition should be made which initiates and encourages compromise that normalizes an otherwise heinous crime thus indicating a mindset, which accepts such offences. It is further submitted that no observation/condition should be made which notes that the best option for the victim is to marry the accused.The petitioner highlights Gyanaranjan Behera v. State of Odisha and submits that in POCSO cases, no observation/condition should be made which takes note of the fact that the victim has attained majority and that the accused has offered to marry her.Furthermore,”In Vikas Garg v. State of Haryana, the Punjab & Haryana High Court had granted bail to 3 accused persons in a crime under Sections 376D, 376(2)(n), 376, 292, 120-B, 506 IPC and Section 67 of the Information Technology Act, 2000 by making observations regarding the victim’s “casual relationships”, “promiscuous attitude” and “voyeuristic mind”. ….. It is submitted that no observation/condition should be made which grants bail on the ground that the victim is of “loose character” or is habituated to sexual intercourse”In this background the petitioner has sought directions for high courts, sessions courts or the courts of MM or any special court ensuring that in every order that they pass in relation to cases of sexual violence against women and children, there should be no observation made, conditions imposed or directions passed which are extraneous to the facts and circumstances of the case, including any such observation, condition or direction:”I. Which trivializes/tends to trivialize the seriousness of the offence.II. Which reflects bias and affects the dignity of a woman.III.Which affects the conduct of the trial in a fair and unbiased manner.IV. Which permits the accused to meet/have access to the victim and her family members.V. Which initiates and encourages compromise that normalizes an otherwise heinous crime thus indicating a mindset, which accepts such offences.VI. Which takes note of the fact that the victim has attained majority (in POCSO cases) and that the accused has offered to marry her.VII. Which notes that that the best option for the victim is to marry the accusedVIII. Which allows bail in favour of an accused for the purpose of solemnizing marriage with the victim.IX. Which grants bail on the ground that the victim is of “loose character” or is “habituated to sexual intercourse”.X. Which directs marriage of the accused with the complainant/victim on an assumption to grant “legitimacy” to a child born as a consequence of the violence.XI.And any other condition which is extraneous to the offence and the requirement of the bail.”The note also states that in addition to the above, there is a need for continuing judicial education for all judges and the National Judicial Academy may conduct special sensitization workshops to familiarize these directions for all judges of the trial courts which are presided by the judges of the High Courts and this Hon’ble Court.Supreme Court advocate Aparna Bhat and eight other women lawyers have challenged (before the Apex Court) one of the Bail Conditions in the Bail Order dated July 30 passed by Madhya Pradesh High Court, wherein the Court had imposed a bail condition upon the person (accused of outraging the modesty of his neighbour) to request the victim to tie the rakhi around his wrist.The top court is expected to hear the matter today.Next Storylast_img read more
