En este pasaje, una conspiración de hombres trama la explotación y violación de una mujer joven. Ella fue despojada del poder de hablar y actuar, su padre ignora el crimen, y el destino del violador, no el de la víctima, se lamenta. Es una historia bíblica desprovista de justicia.Por más de dos décadas, las mujeres africanas de comunidades marginadas han estudiado este pasaje de las escrituras utilizando un método llamado estudio bíblico contextual para explorar y hablar sobre el trauma de la violencia sexual en sus propias vidas. Utilizando un manual publicado por la Campaña Tamar (the Tamar Campaign), las mujeres preguntan, “Qué puede hacer la Iglesia para romper el silencio contra la violencia de género”?Es, según los predicadores de antaño, una pregunta convincente. A medida que nuestras sociedades han sido obligados a reconocer nuevamente que las mujeres de todos ámbitos han sufrido trauma tácito a manos de agresores y acosadores masculinos, nos hemos convencido de que la Iglesia Episcopal debe trabajar aún más para crear una iglesia que no sea solo segura, sino también sagrada, humanitaria y digna. Tenemos que comprometernos a tratar a cada persona como un hijo de Dios, que merece dignidad y respeto. También debemos comprometernos a poner fin al sexismo sistémico, la misoginia, y el abuso de poder que afectan a la iglesia, así como corrompen nuestra cultura, instituciones y gobiernos.Igual que nuestras hermanas africanas en fe, debemos crear contextos en cuales las mujeres puedan hablar sobre su trauma tácito, tanto si lo sufrió dentro de la iglesia o en otro lugar. Y debemos hacer más.Nuestra iglesia tiene que examinar su historia y llegar a un entendimiento más amplio de la manera en que manejó o manejó mal los casos de acoso sexual, explotación y abuso a través de los años. Cuando los hechos lo dictan, debemos confesarnos y arrepentirnos de las instancias en que la iglesia, sus ministros o miembros han sido antagónicos o insensibles a las personas—mujeres, niños y hombres—que han sido víctimas de explotación o abuso sexual. Y hay que reconocer que en nuestra iglesia y en nuestra cultura, la explotación sexual de las mujeres es parte del mismo sistema injusto que también causa brechas de género en la remuneración, los ascensos, la salud y el empoderamiento.Creemos que cada uno de nosotros tiene un papel en nuestro arrepentimiento colectivo. Entonces, hoy, les invitamos a unirnos en un Día de Oración el 14 de febrero Miércoles de Ceniza dedicado a meditar en las maneras en que nosotros en la iglesia no hemos apoyado a las mujeres y otras víctimas de abuso y acoso y a considerar, como parte de nuestras disciplinas cuaresmales, cómo podemos redoblar nuestro trabajo para ser comunidades de seguridad que se opongan a la violencia espiritual y física de la explotación y el abuso sexual.Ninguno de nosotros pretende tener toda la sabiduría necesaria para cambiar la cultura de nuestra iglesia y la sociedad en que ministra, y en la Convención General de este verano, queremos escuchar la voz amplia de la iglesia mientras definimos cómo proceder tanto en expiar por el pasado de la iglesia y formar un futuro más justo. Que encontremos en nuestras deliberaciones oportunidades para escucharnos unos a otros, para ser honestos acerca de nuestros propios fracasos y quebrantamientos, y de discernir devotamente las maneras que Dios nos llama a estar con Tamar en todos los lugares donde la encontramos—tanto dentro de la iglesia como más allá de nuestras puertas, las cuales hemos usado con demasiada frecuencia para excluirla.Fielmente,Rvdmo.

With the exception of an estate built for the city council’s housing association, the “Westgarten” represents Stefan Forster’s first major housing project in his hometown Frankfurt. Among the recently established residential buildings in the capital on the Main River5, the Westgarten has special significance.Save this picture!© Jean-Luc ValentinThe building’s ground floor covers the complete area of the site, containing a supermarket and three other stores, and thus securing the basic, local retail infrastructure of the new suburb Frankfurt-Westhafen. On the first floor, the building also provides residents with a shared green space – a garden with a water feature – after which the building is named. Furthermore, the Westgarten is exceptional in its appearance. Breaking the rules in a positive way, its strong, cool and distinguished look resembles the noble residences of Mediterranean cities, while also deriving qualities from the concrete, local environment where it is situated. There are characteristic parallels to the use of formal elements common in the late 1920s and 1930s. The street-facing façade is covered in clinker bricks, which have been arranged in an uneven profile, thus providing a marvellous play of lights and shadows. Light-coloured ledges emphasize the horizontal nature of the building and create a harmonious contrast to the brown clinker. Save this picture!© Jean-Luc ValentinAll of Forster’s maxims – urbanity with a clearly defined, public ground floor zone; a geometrically precise, clearly structured “build”; a real spaciousness of the apartments and their shielded, “inverted” balconies – are all perfectly embodied in the Westgarten.Project gallerySee allShow lessMinimal Complexity / Vlad TenuArticlesHolcim Awards Juries Showcase Leading Experts on SustainabilityArticlesProject locationAddress:Frankfurt, GermanyLocation to be used only as a reference.

Gammel Dam is a modern family retreat inspired by a rugged, simply crafted cabin in the Morgedal region of Norway where the client’s family have been gathering since the 1950s to enjoy nature and build memories. Located on a remote, 11.76-acre sagebrush and scrub oak covered site near Snowmass, Colorado, the residence rests at the base of a steep, curving ridgeline to the northwest, and transitions to a gently sloping grade to the southeast overlooking Snowmass ski area and the White River National Forest. To provide seclusion and privacy, it sits at the interior of the site among existing aspen groves, scrub oaks, sage, and several large spruce trees.Save this picture!© Draper White PhotographySave this picture!ElevationSave this picture!© Draper White PhotographyOrienting the residence on an east/west axis maximizes the primary views from interior spaces while engaging the immediate landscape through the integration of the building with the sloping grade. Program elements are pulled apart to allow them to adapt to the existing landform while a singular sloped roof unifies them and parallels the natural grade, further reinforcing the building’s relationship to the existing topography. This allows the landscape to flow beneath the roof and between building elements to create covered outdoor spaces. At these locations, interior spaces extend into the landscape, layering together the experience of site and architecture.Save this picture!© Draper White PhotographyScandinavian sensibilities are evident in the owner’s furniture selections, the architect’s material palate and detailing, and the quiet interiors. Illuminating the dining table is a custom steel candle chandelier (designed by CCY Associate Gage Reese). Vertical screens crafted from the exterior wood siding provide a diaphanous quality at key moments, softening the modern aesthetic.Save this picture!© Draper White PhotographyGammel Dam is a base-camp for family and guests to get outdoors. The home is designed to live as a one-bedroom cabin for two when the clients are not entertaining family and friends but flexible living spaces easily accommodate up to 14 additional people in the guest wing. The sauna and spa offer relaxation while fireplaces act as gathering places inside and out. Stacked walls of chopped wood are woven throughout the project’s exterior. The husband’s love of fire and chopping wood is illustrated by his collection of hatchets and axes within the detached shed, which also serves as a private office.Save this picture!© Draper White PhotographyCCY Architects is nationally acclaimed for its place-based architecture that is inspired and informed by spectacular environments.

Mobile High Speed Coverage Continues to Improve in Rural America

first_img Last week, representatives from the rural carriers that participate in the Verizon LTE in Rural America program shared information and provided a candid view of their progress as they prepare to launch 4G LTE service to their customers. With two carriers in the program that have already launched 4G LTE networks and four more slated to launch later this year, the 2nd Annual LTE in Rural America Summitproved to be chock full of interactive discussions, updates and lessons learned. One rural carrier equated the rollout to the Field of Dreams adage: Build it and they will come. Participants expressed satisfaction with the program, speculated about what the network would look like in five years and acknowledged that 4G LTE is a new beginning. Mobile High Speed Coverage Continues to Improve in Rural America By Gary Truitt – Sep 26, 2012 Source: Verizon SHARE Facebook Twitter Home Indiana Agriculture News Mobile High Speed Coverage Continues to Improve in Rural America SHARE Verizon Wireless Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Nicki Palmer provided an update on Verizon’s 4G LTE network and discussed anticipated data growth rates, operational support systems and commitment and support for the program. The participants also toured the Verizon Innovation Center East, got a first-hand view of new products and services enabled by 4G LTE and discussed what they will mean for their customers and their businesses.Verizon Wireless launched the LTE in Rural America program in 2010 to help rural carriers build and operate a 4G LTE network in their areas. Carriers use their tower and backhaul assets with Verizon Wireless’ core 4G LTE equipment and 700 MHz C Block spectrum. To date, 17 rural carriers have joined the program, leasing spectrum covering more than 2.7 million people in 14 states.

Harassment of Ukrainian TV journalists

first_img to go further August 20, 2020 Harassment of Ukrainian TV journalists Mykhailo Tkach (Photo : Natalie Sedletska) Follow the news on Ukraine September 7, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders (RSF) is concerned about repeated attempts to intimidate journalists who do investigative reporting for “Skhemy,” a programme on Ukraine’s main public television channel, UA:Pershyi, and calls for a thorough police investigation into the harassment.Two recent incidents have caught its journalists’ attention. A car used by “Skhemy” for its reporting was set on fire while parked in Brovary, a town 25 km east of Kiev, on the night of 16 August. Based on the preliminary investigation conducted by the police, the fire would be the result of arson.A week before that, on 8 August, “Skhemy” journalist Mykhailo Tkach noticed suspicious holes in the ceiling of the kitchen in his Kiev apartment, and reported a possible attempt to place his apartment under surveillance. The police came in response to his request but conducted no more than a superficial inspection.A programme that investigates government corruption and abuse of power, “Skhemy” has been broadcast weekly since July 2014 and is the product of cooperation between UA:Pershyi and Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, a US-funded broadcaster based in Prague.Tkach has shed a great deal of light into the murkier corners of Ukrainian politics over the years, and suspects that he may have been placed under surveillance because his reporting annoys senior government officials.Formal police investigations were opened on 8 August into “violation of privacy” and on 17 August into “destruction or intentional deterioration of property” in connection with the car fire. But, after deciding that no effective investigation was being conducted in the former case, Tkach filed an official complaint about police inaction on 11 August.“The harassment and attempted intimidation of the staff of ‘Skhemy’ is unacceptable, as is the police inaction,” said Jeanne Cavelier, the head of RSF’s Eastern Europe and Central Asia desk. “The Ukrainian authorities must demonstrate a commitment to defend the media’s right to inform, including the right to cover subjects that annoy them, and they must do everything to ensure that the police conduct thorough and effective investigations.”“Skhemy” has been the target of harassment in the past. Last January, the car of a “Skhemy” correspondent in the western city of Lviv was set on fire. In October 2019, a court tried to force its journalists to reveal their sources, while a onetime aide to former President Yanukovych posted the personal data of the programme’s driver online.Ukraine is ranked 96th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index.

With a 119, 000 foreclosure loan reduction—a 30 percent decrease from last June—the total loan inventory rested below 300,000 for the first time since Q3 2006.Even with delinquencies experiencing a seasonal increase, they remained nearly 2 percent below last year’s level. In addition, serious delinquencies, or anything 90 or more days past due but not yet in foreclosure, it a new post-recession low in June, following the rise in the 2017 hurricane season.The following quick stats were also outlined in the report:Foreclosure starts fell another 3.1 percent in June for the lowest single-month total in more than 17 yearsActive foreclosures continued to decline as well, falling below 300,000 for the first time in nearly 12 yearsThe inventory of loans in active foreclosure has fallen 30 percent (-119k) over the past 12 monthsDelinquencies edged seasonally upward in June, but remain 1.59 percent below last year’s levelsAfter rising following the 2017 hurricane season, 90-day delinquencies hit a new post-recession lowPrepayment activity was up again in June, as home sales reached their typical early-summer peakNon-current totals combine foreclosures and delinquencies as a percent of active loans in that state. Totals are extrapolated based on Black Knight’s loan-level database of mortgage assets, and all whole numbers are rounded to the nearest thousand, except foreclosure starts, which are rounded to the nearest hundred.According to the report, the company will provide a more in-depth review of this data in its monthly Mortgage Monitor report, which includes an analysis of data supplemented by detailed charts and graphs that reflect trend and point-in-time observations.

FHFA Requests Input on Appraisal Policy Modernization

His real estate finance writing has been published in the ABA Banking Journal, Secondary Marketing Executive, Servicing Management, MortgageOrb, Progress in Lending, National Mortgage Professional, Mortgage Professional America, Canadian Mortgage Professional, Mortgage Professional News, Mortgage Broker News and HousingWire. The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) has issued a Request for Input (RFI) related to its appraisal policies, practices, and processes.The RFI follows the challenges that appraisers have faced over the past year, including issues during the COVID-19 pandemic when many appraisers were either unable or unwilling to perform on-site inspection due to the public health crisis. With the RFI, the FHFA is opening a public discussion on whether it will be necessary for the government-sponsored enterprises (GSE) to create new modifications to its appraisal procedures without introducing new risks to the process.“Modernizing the appraisal process has the potential to create a more streamlined and accurate collateral valuation process,” said FHFA Director Mark Calabria in a press statement. “But if modernization is not properly adopted, it could have negative unintended consequences.”Calabria added the RFI will seek to “improve FHFA’s understanding of how the Enterprises can improve the appraisal process while at the same time ensuring they don’t take on unintended or inappropriate levels of risk. The comments we receive will inform how we will modernize appraisals to improve both loan quality and the origination process.”The RFI covers four areas, starting with appraisal modernization, which the FHFA defined as the “development of valuation alternatives that could address the gap between an appraisal waiver and a traditional appraisal.” One proposed alternative offered for consideration was appraisal bifurcation, also known as a hybrid appraisal, where one entity conducts and submits a property inspection report for submission to a GSE automated underwriting system, with a desktop appraisal being conducted later if further collateral analysis is required.Also being addressed is a potential updating of the Uniform Appraisal Dataset (UAD) and redesigning the appraisal forms, with the three-pronged goal of aligning the UAD with the industry-standard Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization (MISMO) Reference Model Version 3.X, assessing if new data would strengthen risk management, and ensuring all property types are included in an expanded dataset.The RFI also seeks to address potential benefits and risks in the use of Automated Valuation Models (AVMs) and appraisal waivers and addressing valuation disparities in predominantly Black and Latino neighborhoods compared to predominantly White communities. The FHFA is accepting input on the RFI through February 26.
