Episcopal Church raises concerns on Trump policy enforcing provisions of…

first_img Rector Washington, DC By David PaulsenPosted Apr 22, 2019 Curate Diocese of Nebraska [Episcopal News Service] The Episcopal Church’s Office of Government Relations is raising concerns about Trump administration plans to start enforcing a long-neglected provision of the U.S. embargo against Cuba.General Convention has passed several resolutions over the past decade calling for an end to the Cuba embargo, an issue that took on new urgency last year when the Diocese of Cuba was welcomed back into The Episcopal Church. In particular, The Episcopal Church urges “an end to provisions that hamper the mission of the Church in Cuba and that contribute to the suffering of the Cuba people,” the Office of Government Relations said in a statement released April 18.Holy Trinity Cathedral, Havana, Cuba. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThat statement responded to the Trump administration’s decision to enforce Title III of the Helms-Burton Act, which will allow U.S. citizens, including naturalized Cubans, to sue foreign companies that may be profiting from use of property seized by the Cuban government in 1959. That provision has been waived by every U.S. president since the Helms-Burton Act was signed into law by President Bill Clinton in 1996.Trump administration officials argue that ending the waiver of Title III will put pressure on the Cuban government over its support for embattled Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro. National Security Adviser John Bolton, who announced this change last week, has called Cuba, Venezuela and Nicaragua a “troika of tyranny.”“The United States looks forward to watching each corner of this sordid triangle of terror fall,” Bolton said in his April 17 announcement.This harder stance toward Cuba comes after former President Barack Obama sought to improve relations with the island country. Obama, who in 2016 became the first U.S. president to visit communist Cuba, oversaw the easing of travel restrictions and restoring of diplomatic relations. The United States reopened its embassy in Havana, and Cuba reopened its embassy in Washington, D.C.In 2015, General Convention passed a resolution hailing such examples of progress and calling for an outright end to the embargo against Cuba. It further directed the Office of Government Relations to work “toward lifting aspects of the embargo that impede The Episcopal Church’s partnership with The Episcopal Church in Cuba.”Cuba Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio leads the recessional following the Feb. 28 Eucharist opening the Episcopal Church of Cuba’s 110th General Synod. Photo: Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News ServiceThree years later, in July 2018, General Convention passed the resolution that readmitted the Diocese of Cuba, and Bishop Griselda Delgado del Carpio took her seat in the House of Bishops.The thaw in relations between the two countries, however, has been in doubt since President Donald Trump took office in 2017 vowing to reverse Obama’s policy toward Cuba. The Trump administration’s announcement this month raised alarms over the prospect that messy legal battles would ensnare companies from countries that do not have embargoes against Cuba, from the European Union to Canada. Some also questioned whether this U.S. policy change would be effective in pressuring Maduro.“How do you allow lawsuits against a country like Canada who has been supportive of efforts in Venezuela and maintain Canada as an ally?” Pedro Freyre, a Miami attorney who advises U.S. companies, told the Miami Herald.The Office of Government Relations, in its statement, also emphasized the potential human cost of such policy changes.“Enacting Title III will cause U.S.-Cuba relations to deteriorate further, and it will hurt the Cuban people and economy,” the office said. “We therefore reiterate our call for an end to the embargo and reassert our commitment to strengthening relations between the Cuban and American people.”The Anglican presence in Cuba dates to 1871. In 1966, The Episcopal Church’s House of Bishops expelled the Cuban diocese in response to the Cuban Revolution and the United States’ policy. Episcopal schools in Cuba had been closed and appropriated, and many clergy and their families were displaced.The diocese’s readmission in 2018 was made possible partly because the Cuban government had grown less restrictive toward churches. The U.S. government’s policy, meanwhile, had become less predictable under Trump, church leaders said.The Episcopal Church of Cuba today has 46 congregations serving about 10,000 members and their communities. Its reintegration into The Episcopal Church is expected to be complete by 2020.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

College welcomes alumna as Holy Cross Hall director

first_imgWhen Elizabeth Palmer graduated Saint Mary’s in 2013, she knew she wanted to return to the College some day. This year, she will do just that when she becomes the hall director for Holy Cross Hall.Palmer graduated in 2013 with degrees in biology and psychology. Though she took some time away from the college, Palmer has worked at the College before as a lab instructor and as an assistant lacrosse coach..“My dream has always been to come back to Saint Mary’s,” she said. “Saint Mary’s is my favorite place in the world.” Palmer said she feels her education and experiences will make her a good fit for her job as hall director.“I’m pursuing a master of divinity and through that I feel like I can meet people where they are and encounter others and experience diversity,” she said. “So I thought this specific job was a great way to come back and be somewhere I love, while encountering the community and being in solidarity with students by living in the dorm.”Palmer said her first duty as hall director is to establish herself as a resource for students who want to talk with someone who can empathize with them.“The most profound and significant piece of the job is just being a resource for students on campus and being a place where students can come to,” she said. “Whether they’re struggling or succeeding, I can be a support to them. When I was here as a student, I wasn’t a person who sought out their hall director. I want to become a resource because I’m living here on campus too. I get what [students] are experiencing so we can talk about life.”Palmer said her duties include cultivating an engaging and welcoming environment for residents, as well as providing opportunities for growth and development among resident advisors. “This place is home and how do you cultivate home? By making sure everyone is experiencing home in a unique way that is a good fit for them,” she said. “We also help with the growth and development of the RAs. We have weekly meetings with them and also one-on-one meetings.”Palmer said she is excited to immerse herself in a part of Saint Mary’s campus and history she has not previously experienced. “I lived in Regina for two years and then Le Mans for two years, so I never lived in Holy Cross Hall when I went here,” she said. “Getting to return and live in a completely new building has allowed me to embrace the history of the College more, since [Holy Cross Hall] is the oldest building on campus. I’m a history buff when it comes to Saint Mary’s. I love the history of this place and love being close to the Sisters of the Holy Cross. Coming back, I’ve really understood the mission of the College more as an alumna and I understand the Sisters’ impact. I get to live out the mission in a new way.”Palmer said through her job as hall director, she will work alongside her previous mentors, and this is one of her greatest blessings. “It’s such a gift and a blessing because the same people who allowed me to grow as a person and develop as a person are still empowering me,” she said. “It is the greatest gift to be around this community that has supported me since I was eighteen, and now to come back at twenty-six and have them still supporting me is amazing.”Palmer said although she wants to be seen as a friendly face among residents, faculty and students, she still wants to create a professional environment.“I think coming back, I definitely want to establish myself as a professional because it is weird, being a student then coming back to work here,” she said. “I feel Saint Mary’s is going to help me learn how to be a professional and help me see what that looks like.”Palmer said she wants Saint Mary’s students to know that the spirit of the College follows students, even after graduation.“As an alumna, something I would tell students is, you think Saint Mary’s is the best four years of your life, and the most beautiful thing is that Saint Mary’s doesn’t end after four years,” she said. “Even after being away from South Bend — I’ve been in graduate school for the past two years and have travelled and seen many different parts of the world — I still feel like Saint Mary’s is apart of me no matter where I am. Saint Mary’s transcends the community and transcends the borders of South Bend.” Tags: Alumni, Hall Director, Holy Cross Hall, residence hallslast_img read more

Colombian Police Have Seized More Than 600 Tons of Illicit Drugs in 2010

first_imgBy Dialogo December 30, 2010 The Colombian anti-narcotics police have seized more than six hundred tons of illicit drugs so far in 2010, according to their commander, Gen. César Augusto Pinzón. According to a summary of the year’s activities, seizures of cocaine came to 73.6 tons; coca paste and basuco (made from byproducts of cocaine production), 32.5 tons; marijuana, 222.7 tons; and heroin, 290 kilos. According to the anti-narcotics police, these seizures represent 3.9472 billion dollars in losses for the drug-trafficking organizations. General Pinzón did not report the amount of drugs seized in 2009. He highlighted that 1,014 Colombians and 143 foreigners were arrested in anti-drug operations in 2010, 35 of whom were sought for extradition, in the majority of cases by the United States. With regard to the eradication of coca, poppy, and marijuana crops, the report indicated that 101,171 hectares planted with coca were eradicated by spraying and another 42,491 by hand, while 706 hectares of poppies and 207 hectares of marijuana plants were also eradicated by hand. In addition, 1,391 laboratories for narcotics processing were destroyed, and fifteen tons of various chemical precursors used for this purpose were seized. Eighteen clandestine airstrips used by drug traffickers were also destroyed, and 265 aircraft and 356 boats of all kinds were seized.last_img read more

The impact of loyalty

first_imgStatistics to consider.by: Stephanie Schwenn Sebring and Lisa HochgrafEven with all the buzz about digital wallets, statistics show that cards are still mighty important—and widely used—by U.S. consumers. Statistics provided by some loyalty program companies suggest that having rewards can be effective in promoting card use and deepening members’ relationship with their CUs.Brian Day, manager/mobile products for CUES Supplier member The Members Group, Des Moines, Iowa, provides the following card use data for consideration:A third of U.S. consumers have one or two credit cards, and just under 20 percent have three or four cards, according to creditcards.com.Information about rewards vs. non-reward card programs is on p. 90 of this report about card adoption from the Boston office of the Federal Reserve.About 10 percent of customers switched their primary card in 2014; among those who switched cards, 42 percent did so for a better rewards program, according to JD Power. continue reading » 4SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

Asymptomatic coronavirus carriers have high viral loads: Study

first_imgPeople who are infected with the coronavirus carry similar levels of the pathogen in their nose, throat and lungs whether they have symptoms or not, a new study from South Korea showed Thursday.The paper, published in JAMA Internal Medicine, is an important biological line of evidence in support of the idea that asymptomatic carriers can spread COVID-19.Until now, experts have relied on inferring asymptomatic spread when people contract the virus without contact with a known carrier. Topics : A team of researchers led by Seungjae Lee at Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine analyzed swabs taken between March 6 and March 26 from 303 people isolated at a center in Cheonan, following an outbreak among a religious group in another city.The group ranged in age from 22 to 36 and two-thirds were women. Of the total, 193 were symptomatic and 110 were asymptomatic.Among those who were initially asymptomatic, 89 never developed symptoms at all — about 30 percent of the total.This finding itself helps gives a sense of what portion of infected people are truly asymptomatic rather than merely “presymptomatic,” a subject of confusion.center_img All were sampled at regular intervals after day eight of isolation, and the samples returned comparable values of the virus’ genetic material from the upper and lower airways.The median time taken for the patients to return negative tests was marginally less for asymptomatic patients compared with symptomatic: 17 and 19.5 days, respectively.The authors wrote their findings “offer biological plausibility” to reports of asymptomatic transmission.But they added that their study only looked at the amount of viral genetic material present and did not attempt to follow the subjects to see if that translated to the spread of infectious virus.last_img read more

Australia strike first in opening ODI

first_img….Mitchell Starc becomes quickest bowler to 100 ODI wickets(REUTERS)-Steve Smith and Aaron Finch struck half-centuries to help Australia to a three-wicket win over Sri Lanka in the first one-day international in Colombo yesterday.Sri Lanka, who lost the toss and were sent out to bat on a dry, turning wicket, set the visitors a target of 228, but Australia successfully chased them down with 19 balls to spare to give them the lead in the five-match series.Earlier in the day, Mitchell Starc and James Faulkner took seven wickets between them to make life tough for the hosts.Starc finished with three wickets for 32 runs in his 10 overs and drew first blood early in the Sri Lankan innings when he bowled opener Kusal Perera on one.He became the quickest bowler in history to reach 100 ODI wickets, passing the record set by Pakistan’s Saqlain Mushtaq nearly two decades ago, when he dismissed Dhananjaya de Silva for two.Faulkner ended with four for 38, including two wickets in the same over.First, he enticed Kusal Mendis into top-edging a slow offcutter to Travis Head at midwicket, before tempting Angelo Mathews into a drive that was caught superbly by Head at point to send the Sri Lanka skipper back to the pavilion with a duck.Dinesh Chandimal top-scored for the hosts with a patient unbeaten 80 that contained just three boundaries, but his efforts were not enough to prevent Australia getting their first win of the tour after being whitewashed 3-0 in the test series.Finch got Australia off to a blistering start, hitting seven boundaries and two sixes en route to 56 off 46 deliveries, while Smith struck five boundaries during a more measured innings that yielded 58 runs off 124 balls.Smith and George Bailey piled on 62 runs for the fourth wicket, before the Australian skipper fell to an outstanding catch from substitute fielder Danushka Gunathilaka.Australia had been given a solid platform, allowing them to ease their way to victory, with Faulkner and Starc, both not out on five apiece, easing them over the line.SRI LANKA InningsK.

NRG Esports begins partnership with Enjin Coin

first_imgNRG Esports has partnered with Enjin Coin to deliver more cryptocurrency into the gaming scene. This is the first time Enjin has joined forces with an esports organisation, as it felt the need to get involved before it becomes a even bigger market – and rightfully so.Maxim Blagov, Enjin Coin CEO said this of the partnership: “We have been exploring the eSports market for some time now and have been waiting for the perfect partner. The incredible success and rapid growth of NRG eSports since its founding, coupled with their organization meticulous focus on strategy and innovation that clearly represents the future of esports made them the obvious choice.”The collaboration will see NRG spread the word of Enjin Coin, as well as educating its rapidly-growing following on gaming cryptocurrency and introducing the Enjin Wallet (which is described as “the most secure mobile wallet in the world.”)Ilija Rolovic, Enjin Coin CMO explained the role NRG has in the partnership a little further. “NRG eSports will help us introduce Enjin Coin to a massive, engaged, hard-core gaming audience — and be the first in a wave of gaming organizations and communities that will use our technology to galvanize their fans.” It sounds as if Enjin Coin may add other organisations to its list of partners further down the line.NRG will create a custom token with its own branding on it, and will then distribute it to fans of the organisation in an attempt to spread awareness and to reward engagement. These tokens will be used for entering raffles and winning prizes, whether it’s visiting an event, receiving gaming hardware, or receiving professional training.NRG already counts EventsDC, Republic of Gamers, Logitech, Twitch, and Amazon Coins among its partners. Competing in titles such as Fortnite, Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Overwatch, Rocket League, Hearthstone, For Honor, Vainglory, and Smite, NRG is one of the biggest organisations in esports.Esports Insider says: We’re intrigued to see how NRG and Enjin Coin look to influence fans and spectators to embrace cryptocurrency over time. Using incentives and prizes makes complete sense, but it’ll have to be done well to not feel forced.last_img read more
