I stand boldly beside my church leadership in their opposition to any law that denies dignity and perpetuates fear, especially while masquerading as a rational attempt to increase security. The Executive Council was right on many levels to call out this “bathroom bill” and expose it for being what it really is–a legal cover for blatant discrimination. God’s children are called to love and celebrate rather than hate and discriminate, remember?

It’s such a false fear that motivates these bills, and it really boils down to this underlying message: “We wish you didn’t exist, and it’s ok with us if you die from lack of healthcare, hate crimes, suicide, or addiction. We’re ok with making life so difficult for you that you don’t want to live it, because ultimately, we wish you weren’t here at all.” I give thanks that my church will fight for people like me.

John Payne says: Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Knoxville, TN Submit a Press Release 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 [Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies, have written to the speaker of the Texas House of Representatives to praise his opposition to a so-called “bathroom bill” in that state.“The need for voices of conscience is urgent at this moment, because laws like the one proposed in Texas target some of the most vulnerable people in our communities,” Curry and Jennings said in their Jan. 30 letter to Joe Straus, R-San Antonio, that was released Feb. 6.General Convention is scheduled to meet July 5-13 in Austin, Texas. The two told Straus they hoped the Episcopal Church would not face the “difficult choice” of rethinking that choice.“No one wants to move General Convention,” Jennings told Episcopal News Service. “But, we do want to offer our support to Speaker Straus and the growing number of Texans, including many Episcopalians, who are opposed to discrimination in their state. We’re committed to assisting the coalition working to defeat Senate Bill 6 when it reaches the House so that in 2018 all Episcopalians can enjoy Texas hospitality in Austin.”The Senate Bill 6 would require transgender people to use bathrooms in public schools, government buildings and public universities based on what the bill calls their “biological sex” as stated on their birth certificate. The bill would also overturn local nondiscrimination ordinances in cities like Austin, Dallas, and San Antonio. State Sen. Lois Kolkhorst introduced that bill on Jan. 5 and it has the support of Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick, among others.The bill echoes a similar law North Carolina passed in early in 2016 that survived a repeal attempt late last year. The Episcopal Church’s Executive Council said in June 2016 that it opposed that state’s “Public Facilities Privacy & Security Act” as well as “all legislation, rhetoric and policy rooted in the fear-based argument that protecting transgender people’s civil rights in the form of equal access to public accommodation puts other groups at risk.”Shortly after council acted in June, Curry and Jennings wrote to the Episcopal Church explaining their opposition to the bill and saying that they had written to the North Carolina governor and members of the state’s General Assembly, calling on them to repeal the bill.Curry and Jennings link such bills to those of the Jim Crow era aimed at people of color. They also reminded Straus about the impact on transgender people of the harassment they face, citing a 2011 survey tracking those effects.The Episcopal Church is “proudly diverse: racially, economically, and in terms of sexual orientation and gender identity,” Curry and Jennings said. “We are duty-bound to ensure that all of our people are treated with respect, that their safety is guaranteed, and that our investment in the local economy of our host city reflects our values” during meetings of General Convention.The letter notes that the Church moved General Convention from Houston to Honolulu in 1955 because the Texas city could not offer sufficient guarantees of desegregated housing for its delegates.“We would not stand then for Episcopalians to be discriminated against, and we cannot countenance it now,” Curry and Jennings wrote. “We would be deeply grieved if Senate Bill 6 presented us with the same difficult choice that church leaders faced more than 60 years ago.”They urged Straus to “remain steadfast” in his opposition to the bill, which is expected to pass the Senate.The complete text of the letter followsJanuary 30, 2017The Honorable Joe Straus Speaker of the HouseP.O. Box 2910Austin, Texas 78768Dear Speaker Straus:Thank you for your stand against Senate Bill 6. As the presiding officers of the Episcopal Church, we are firmly opposed to this legislation and condemn its discriminatory intent. We reject the notion that transgender people do not deserve equal civil rights and protection under the law. We affirm the dignity of all of God’s people, for we are all equally children of God, as the prophet Malachi declared when he wrote: “Have we not all one father? Has not one God created us?” (Mal. 2:10)As you are no doubt aware, this is not the first time that the segregation of bathrooms and public facilities has been used to stigmatize minority groups. “Bathroom bills,” as they are sometimes called, were passed during the Jim Crow era, and the bogus rationale advanced then is the same bogus rationale being advanced now: the safety of women and children who are no way under threat. The Executive Council of the Episcopal Church has stood against fear and in support of God’s love by passing a resolution that reaffirms the church’s support of local, state and federal laws that prevent discrimination based on gender identity or gender expression. The resolution also states our opposition to any legislation that seeks to deny the dignity, equality, and civil rights of transgender people.The need for voices of conscience is urgent at this moment, because laws like the one proposed in Texas target some of the most vulnerable people in our communities. In a 2011 survey, 78 percent of transgender people said that they had been bullied or harassed in childhood; 41 percent said they had attempted suicide; 35 percent had been assaulted and 12 percent had suffered a sexual assault. Almost half of transgender people who responded to the survey said they had suffered job discrimination, and almost a fifth had lost housing or been denied health care due to their gender identity or expression.For us, as Episcopalians, the proposed Texas law is of particular concern. We are currently scheduled to hold our triennial General Convention—a nine-day event that includes as many as 10,000 people—in Austin in July 2018. Our church is proudly diverse: racially, economically, and in terms of sexual orientation and gender identity. At our conventions, we are duty-bound to ensure that all of our people are treated with respect, that their safety is guaranteed, and that our investment in the local economy of our host city reflects our values.In 1955 we were forced to move a General Convention from Houston to another state because Texas laws prohibited black and white Episcopalians from being treated equally. We would not stand then for Episcopalians to be discriminated against, and we cannot countenance it now. We would be deeply grieved if Senate Bill 6 presented us with the same difficult choice that church leaders faced more than sixty years ago.We urge you to remain steadfast in your opposition to Senate Bill 6 and any similar bill that might be introduced in the Texas House, and we thank you for your commitment to keeping Texas a welcoming state for all of God’s children.Faithfully,The Most Rev.

Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest February 7, 2017 at 12:22 pm I am thankful for these prophetic voices that seek to resist this culture of fear. May we all take up the prophetic role so clearly shown here. February 7, 2017 at 1:50 pm I think that the next time I see the misuse of the term “most vulnerable” I shall throw up! To suggest that males who aren’t thrilled by the prospect of having to pee in the presence of females who resent being female are engaging in “harassment” and “discrimination” of the “Jim Crow Era” is truly idiotic. Episcopalians no matter what their sexual orientation should be embarrassed that we have a Presiding Bishop and many other higher-ups in the church who are using the pulpit to make learned pronouncements that not that long ago would have been regarded by any normal person as sheer lunacy. It’s bad enough that Episcopalians may soon be forced to help pay through their pledges for the installation of unisex toilets in Episcopal cathedrals. Even worse is the fact that bishops and priests who embrace transgenderism as something fine and dandy are essentially telling individuals unhappy at having been born male or female that they have a right to tell our Divine Creator that he made a mistake which human beings have a right to “correct”. That amounts to pure sacrilege which until recently might have resulted in their being thrown out of the church.I hope that fellow Episcopalians who feel as I do will rise up in protest at this and other outrages such as the recent notion that giving preference to fellow Christian refugees from the Middle East and elsewhere amounts to unjustified “religious” discrimination. Otherwise the flood of loyal members leaving the church in disgust will continue until such time as the Episcopal Church ceases to exist.

Farmworkers forum yields substance

Previous articleHow to Make Walking SaferNext articleQuestion of the Week Directory – City Council Candidates for Seat 3 Denise Connell RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply The Apopka farmworking community lives in the shadows. They keep their heads down and generally don’t make waves, interact with politicians or go to City Council meetings. They do not vote in large “super voter” blocs or even speak the language.But they do a great deal of the work in Apopka. And its backbreaking labor for low wages, limited benefits and a small voice in the community.Alice NolanOn Thursday night this hard working, quiet community reached out to the candidates of Apopka. They spoke their minds to the candidates for the City Commission.  Most of them spoke in Spanish and had to rely on translators to convey their words… something many of them have to do in their every-day lives to communicate. The six candidates, and about 100 spectators packed into the Farmworkers Association of Florida (FWAF) headquarters in Apopka to watch the Candidate Forum sponsored by the FWAF, Hope Community Center, The Florida Immigrant Coalition and MiFamilia Vote.It was uncomfortable. It was hard to follow. It was unorganized. The moderator from Univision didn’t show up. They started 30 minutes late.But it was a little slice of democracy despite the minor wrinkles.Doug Bankson and Commissioner Sam RuthOh yes, and eventually there was a forum…All six candidates for Seats #3 and #4 answered questions from the audience, and then waited as an interpreter translated their words to the mostly Hispanic audience. Despite the inconveniences, there was substance to this Forum, and the Hispanic community was able to voice its concerns and get to know their would-be City Commissioners.Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith, the incumbent of Seat #4,  opened the Forum by pointing out he has been with the FWAF since the beginning.“When the sisters came here back in the 70’s I was here then and I got to watch them build this community,” he said. “One of the big things that we have here today is the Community Help Center. I have helped orchestrate millions of dollars of loans to them.”Young Kim, a candidate for Seat #4, featured his time in Apopka in contrast to his experiences in California.“I’ve been here since 1988. I’ve experienced integration in California. They have bi-lingual buses. Things that are absolutely necessary for the Spanish population.”One question that seemed to be of primary focus to the audience was how to better integrate itself into the Apopka community. Doug Bankson, challenger for Seat #3, sees education as the silver bullet to integration.“I think it’s important to remember that lack of knowledge is not the same as lack of intelligence,” he said. “I’ve been to South America five times to teach at Bible schools and ministries. And when I went down there I didn’t understand the language. It didn’t mean I wasn’t intelligent; it was just difficult to communicate. I learned one thing “donde esta bano” (which means where is the bathroom?). And so I think a big part of the integration has got to be education. And that’s where what you do here (FWAF), the work you do here, to empower you to be able to communicate. Communication and understanding helps build the bridge. Then you don’t feel that you are not a part. Remember we are one race – the human race.”Commissioner Bill Arrowsmith, Kyle Becker and Young KimAlice Nolan, a candidate for Seat #3, believes it is in keeping the lines of communication open that will allow the Hispanic community to flourish.“To better integrate is to reach out to leaders like the FWAF to see what your needs are and to keep the dialogue open. With this communication, it can open doors and we can work together on matters. But in doing this we need your help to keep in touch with us. And don’t be afraid to reach out because we don’t speak the same language. We will find someone. I promise you.”Kyle Becker, challenger for Seat #4, included health options and job assistance in his response.“We have to involve all of Apopka when we’re making decisions. We have to make sure we’re not operating in a vacuum. Apopka is 25% Hispanic. We have to involve everyone in the process. Apopka has a 17% poverty rate. And I want to work with you (FWAF) to make sure Apopka has health options, schooling options, and job assistance options. This is why I’m here. The social programs that are needed to make sure that all residents of Apopka have the same opportunity to thrive no matter if you’re in  the North, South, East or West Apopka.”Commissioner Sam Ruth, the incumbent for Seat #3, stressed the job theme Becker touched on and reminded the audience their votes count.“One of the things I’m excited about is… in my lifetime this has been an agricultural community. But there are so many new things that are coming here that are going to require workers for restaurants, construction. We’re going to be re-identifying ourselves, and when the old rules of the agricultural community start to move away, it’s going to create an environment where we’re all socially involved. Six months ago when we did our visioning process we had a three-hour conversation. And the information we retrieved we’ve already started the implementation of those policies. Make sure you remember your votes do count. Your needs are being heard. We’ve only just started this process… so help us push it along.”The Forum ended with information on voting options (in Spanish) to the audience – voting precincts, absentee ballots and early voting. It was a combination of townhall-style questions, answers and community outreach.

Andrew Van Der Heijden’s huge hit on prop Soane Tonga’uiha

first_imgTuesday Apr 19, 2011 Andrew Van Der Heijden’s huge hit on prop Soane Tonga’uiha A few days ago you saw a video that featured Gcobani Bobo and Chris Ashton having a little battle in the Newcastle vs Northampton match. As mentioned, the game was full of incident, so here’s another great hit from it. The Bobo-Ashton post , which was stuck up to a highlight a great hit and a nice, old school type confrontation, caused quite a stir as some of you took the opportunity to rip into a player that for various reasons is disliked in some quarters. Opinions are fine, and constructive discussion is encouraged, but lets bear in mind that a lot of these players do visit the site and we’d like the image of it not to be tarnished by anonymous mud slinging please. That’s a little request from RD to you, that would be much appreciated. Back to the game, and this cracking hit from Aucklander Andrew van der Heijden on Saints’ mobile prop Soane Tonga’uiha, who has probably never been hit that hard in his life. A former Auckland and Blues player, 6ft7 Van der Heijden moved to Newcastle in December, and after recovering from a broken arm the day after signing, has been looking to make a big impact. As you can see below, he did just that, smashing the big Tongan into next week. You can watch short highlights of all the Aviva Premiership games on the eplayer on the sidebar.

Radian Apartments / Erdy McHenry Architecture

first_img Apartments Year:  ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/158386/radian-apartments-erdy-mchenry-architecture Clipboard Photographs:  Peter Kubilus, Tommy Holt, Roger SwingleText description provided by the architects. The Radian Apartments are a 14-story, 500-bed residential and retail center at the edge of the University of Pennsylvania’s rapidly expanding campus. The Radian’s name is based on its angular-design feature created by Philadelphia-based Erdy McHenry Architecture, LLC. The project was initiated by a private developer in collaboration with the University, which owns the land. It is built with contested space in mind. It neither belongs to the assortment of retail spaces of West Philadelphia nor to the flat academic buildings that are signature of University City. It gracefully blurs the line between these two opposing landscapes, while upgrading the atmosphere of both.Save this picture!© Peter KubilusRecommended ProductsEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesFranken-SchotterFacade System –  LINEAEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesRodecaRound Facade at Omnisport Arena ApeldoornFiber Cements / CementsDuctal®Ductal® Cladding Panels (EU)Fiber Cements / CementsULMA Architectural SolutionsPaper Facade Panel in Leioa School RestorationThe modular style of the Radian references the unit construction of dormitories, yet progressively steers away from their trademark rigidity. Apartments range from one bedroom to four, and are arranged differently on each floor. The flexible plan, combines a one bathroom apartment with a four bathroom apartment, creating random junctions and unexpected engagements. The connections made inside the building, expressed outside by windows etched on the facade, are unified by the single white ribbon wrapping itself around the frame of the building. Save this picture!© Peter KubilusGround-level retail pushes back from the street opening a public space for informal gathering. The residential entrance exists along this axis and public activity extends up and under the residential tower via a grand stair. This open court aligns with an adjacent quad on the south side of Walnut Street connecting with Locust Walk. Outdoor dining options are provided at the upper terrace level and allow for glimpses onto the street. Save this picture!© Peter KubilusThe building’s sustainable features include a green roof and a prefabricated rain-screen facade. The 10,000 square foot green roof acts as a storm-water management system, funneling water off impervious surfaces and into the garden, while controlling the release of excess water into Philadelphia’s combined sewer system. The retention basin is marked by the landscape above it, a simple grove of trees.

This project, located in the Eagle Rock area of Los Angeles, is situated on an irregularly-shaped, steeply-sloping lot. Faced with a limited budget, it was particularly challenging to negotiate the constraints of the lot while taking advantage of the site’s sweeping view. The owners wanted the house to evoke the area’s craftsmen architecture, so this vernacular served as a basis for the design.Save this picture!Section AAThe floor levels, stacked over the garage below, are stepped up the hillside and adjust to the shape of the lot. Both the living area and the master bedroom are oriented towards the view.Save this picture!© Eric StaudenmaierThe main spaces are cross-ventilated and organized around the central stair hall, which creates a stack effect that augments the passive air system. The walls of every space in the house are capped with an exposed header.Save this picture!© Eric StaudenmaierThis technique, originally derived from Bernard Maybeck, was later used by Rudolph Schindler as a way to reduce finish costs. Each of the headers has been split into two, sandwiching the walls from the interior and the exterior. They double as finish material inside and out, which reduces the cost while allowing insulation and waterproofing to pass in between. These headers, along with all of the railings, exposed structure, and sun-shade trellises, are built with common 2×4’s and 2×12’s, painted black.

As a result of the unprecedented impact of this measure on businesses, and to aid the plunging economic scenario in the country, a series of economic reforms have been sought to be implemented under the aegis of the finance minister Ms. Nirmala Sitharaman. On 24 March 2020, the Ministry of Finance (“MoF”) announced its intention of suspending Sections 7, 9 and 10 of the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code 2016 (“Code”) for a period of six months, should the current situation continue beyond 30 April 2020, to stop companies at large from being forced into insolvency proceedings in such force majeure causes of default[1]. Given the worsening situation, the MoF by way of a subsequent announcement on 17 May 2020, has confirmed “Suspension of fresh initiation of insolvency proceedings up to one year, depending upon the pandemic situation. Empowering Central Government to exclude COVID 19 related debt from the definition of “default” under the Code for the purpose of triggering insolvency proceedings.”[2]. Background The Code was enacted with a view to bring about the time bound resolution of insolvent firms, individuals and corporate persons to ensure maximization of the value of its assets. The aforementioned sections are key provisions of the Code. While Section 7 deals with Financial Creditors initiating insolvency proceedings against a company, Section 9 deals with Operational Creditors initiating the same and Section 10 allows a defaulting company itself to approach the National Company Law Tribunal (“NCLT”) to declare itself insolvent. Given the gravity of the current circumstances, the Central Government is set to enforce the suspension of Sections 7, 9 and 10 of the Code (“Proposed Suspension”). Whilst some experts have hailed the Proposed Suspension as a move which would save companies from facing management instability, others state that it just buys a sick company’s management time and allows dues to pile up. What makes the Proposed Suspension problematic is that it does not make any mention of Part III of the Code. Part III of the Code deals with the insolvency and bankruptcy of individuals and partnership Firms. By way of a notification dated 15 November 2019, the Central Government brought into effect Part III of the Code with effect from 1 December 2019, in so far as it is applicable to Personal Guarantors of a Corporate Debtor along with the relevant rules and regulations[3], notably Section 2(e), Section 78 (except with regard to fresh start process) and Section 79, Sections 94 to 187, Section 239(2)(i)(g), Section 239(2)(zc)(m), Section 240(2)(zs)(zn) and Section 249. Prior to the coming into effect of Part III of the Code, promoters could only be tried in the Debts Recovery Tribunal (“DRT”) by filing recovery suits. However, all creditors are now empowered to take recourse against them under the Code. The contentious debate this triggers is that now a promoter’s assets may also be attached for the purpose of insolvency proceedings. Post 2013, several promoters have furnished personal guarantees since the Reserve Bank of India (“RBI”) now requires banks to obtain personal guarantees of promoters in all cases of restructuring[4]. Albeit limited to companies facing restructuring, the rationale provided by the RBI is that it ensures that the promoters still have their “skin in the game” indicative of their commitment to the restructuring package. This guideline has far reaching repercussions as promoters may now face their personal assets being attached to insolvency proceedings. Personal Guarantors under the Code The law with regard to personal guarantors of corporate debtors was first laid down by the Supreme Court in State Bank of India v. V. Ramakrishnan[5], wherein it was held that a contract of guarantee is specifically kept out of a moratorium under Section 14 of the Code against the liabilities of the corporate debtor. Keeping in view Section 31 of the Code, coupled with a guarantor’s obligation under Section 133 of the Indian Contract Act 1972, the aim was to ensure that a guarantor is not relieved from making payments even if the debt is varied under the resolution plan as the resolution plan is binding on the guarantor as well. Now the Code permits the initiation of insolvency resolution process against the personal guarantor of a corporate debtor either by way of an application by the creditor[6] or an application filed by the debtor himself, i.e., the guarantor[7] before the Adjudicating Authority. It is interesting to note that as per Section 60 read with Section 79(1) of the Code, the Adjudicating Authority in relation to insolvency resolution and liquidation for corporate debtors and personal guarantors thereof shall be the National Company Law Tribunal (“NCLT”), and for all other cases shall be the Debt Recovery Tribunal (“DRT”) established under the Recovery of Debts Due to Banks and Financial Institution Act 1993 (“RDB Act”). This implies that, if insolvency proceedings are initiated solely against the personal guarantor, the Adjudicating Authority is the DRT and not the NCLT. Whilst the Proposed Suspension doesn’t let a creditor invoke insolvency proceedings against the defaulting company/ corporate debtor, it is silent on invoking the same against a personal guarantor. Consequently, it may now be possible for a creditor to proceed against a personal guarantor of a corporate debtor by way of initiation of insolvency resolution process under Section 95 of the Code before the DRT. This makes cumbersome and long drained, a Code that was brought in to ease the process of Insolvency. It is likely that creditors will make a beeline for the DRT for the purpose of recovery proceedings directly against the personal guarantors, citing inability to claim their dues against the corporate debtor. The purpose of suspending proceedings against the corporate debtor would stand defeated should the same be allowed against the personal guarantor. Should the forums, time periods and structures not be streamlined, the Code may see the same fate as the Sick Industrial Companies (Special Provisions) Act 1985. Assuming an application has been filed by a creditor under Section 95 before the DRT for the initiation of insolvency resolution of a personal guarantor, Part III of the Code provides for two kinds of moratorium: (a) interim moratorium under Section 96; (b) moratorium under Section 101. An interim moratorium under Section 96 comes into effect as soon as an application is filed under Section 94 or Section 95 of the Code before the DRT i.e the relevant Adjudicating Authority, and operates against all debts owed by the guarantor, as well as all legal proceedings in relation to such debts. Thereafter, once such application is admitted, a moratorium under Section 101 comes into effect until the acceptance of a repayment plan. The moratorium under Section 101 is enforced for a period of 180 days, whereby pending legal actions or proceedings in respect of all debts are stayed, creditors are prohibited from instituting fresh legal proceedings in respect of their debts and the guarantor is barred from transferring or alienating his assets. In fact, the Supreme Court, in State Bank of India v. V. Ramakrishnan[8], has held that when an application is filed under Part III, an interim moratorium or a moratorium under Section 101 is applicable in respect of any debt due, and the protection of moratorium under these sections is far greater than that under Section 14, which is limited to a stay on the legal proceedings against the debt and not the debtor. Therefore, once an interim moratorium kicks in, the whole purpose of the Proposed Suspension which was to remove an element of risk for companies, and allow it to access all its options of securing funding/ loans or attempting to secure any form of relief stands defeated. CONCLUSION In view of the above, while what version would ultimately be implemented is a gnawing question, the current state in which the MoF seeks to amend the Code seems problematic to say the least. The Proposed Suspension would have far reaching consequences on a Code which has had a tumultuous background to begin with, in light of the multiple amendments it sees, more frequently than any law should. Moreover, in light of the latest announcement of the MoF dated 17 May 2020, the most urgent aspect that needs to be addressed is the lack of clarity that has now ensued in light of the previous press release. Mere use of the terms “IBC stands suspended” does not make clear whether the MoF intends to do what was stated earlier i.e suspend only Sections 7,9 and 10 or resort to a more encompassing directive which would insulate personal guarantors from the proceedings as well. There is presently no settled jurisprudence on collection of dues from personal guarantors rather than the corporate debtor itself and the Proposed Suspension does nothing but redirect creditors to initiate insolvency proceedings directly against the guarantors rather than first approaching the corporate debtor whose dues have actually accumulated. The implementation of the same would be precarious and may trigger more litigation before the DRT, a forum which so far has not dealt with insolvency proceedings before December 2019.
