Idowu-Fearon ‘comprometido con la misión reconciliadora de Dios’

first_img Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Shreveport, LA Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ El arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon (al centro) con el arzobispo de Cantórbery Justin Welby (a la izquierda) y el obispo James Tengatenga, presidente del Consejo Consultivo Anglicano. Foto de ACNS[Episcopal News Service] Muchos líderes anglicanos y episcopales están celebrando el nombramiento del arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon de la Diócesis Anglicana de Kaduna, Nigeria, como el próximo secretario general de la Comunión Anglicana.“Josiah es, sobre todo, un hombre de comunión, un oyente atento y una persona que respeta las diferentes formas en que somos llamados a proclamar y vivir las buenas nuevas de Dios en Jesucristo”, dijo a Episcopal News Service el ex obispo primado [de la Iglesia Episcopal] Frank Griswold luego del nombramiento.Griswold participó junto con Idowu-Fearon en las Conversaciones Internacionales Anglicanas sobre la Sexualidad Humana, [un grupo] nombrado por el anterior arzobispo de Cantórbery George Carey después de la Conferencia de Lambeth 1998.“Aunque proveníamos de contextos muy diferentes, nuestros divergentes puntos de vista en modo alguno amenazaron nuestro respeto mutuo ni nuestra capacidad de reconocernos mutuamente como verdaderos hermanos en Cristo”, dijo Griswold, quien, como el 25º. obispo primado, invitó a Idowu-Fearon a predicar en la eucaristía dominical de la Convención General de 2003 en Minneapolis “porque quería que la humanidad de su carácter sirviera de provecho a la Iglesia Episcopal y que su perspectiva particular contribuyera a ampliar nuestra comprensión y aprecio de hermanos y hermanas anglicanos en un contexto muy diferente del nuestro”.Griswold e Idowu-Fearon también fueron panelistas en un debate público en Londres en octubre de 2004 auspiciado por el Foro Pew sobre Religión y Vida Pública en relación con problemas que afectan a la Comunión Anglicana. “Algunos presentes esperaban que el obispo Josiah y yo intercambiaríamos amargas palabras y se quedaron decepcionados por la confianza y el afecto obvios que existía entre nosotros”, dijo Griswold. “Tengo todas las expectativas de que él será una bendición para toda la Comunión en los tiempos que se avecinan”.El nombramiento provocó al principio reacciones ambivalentes, con denuncias de que Idowu-Fearon apoyaba la criminalización de la homosexualidad en Nigeria, refiriéndose específicamente a un sermón de 2014 y a una entrevista de 2007. Idowu-Fearon se apresuró a refutar esas afirmaciones, calificándolas de infundadas.“Nunca he apoyado la ley en Nigeria que criminaliza a la comunidad homosexual y nunca la apoyaré”, dijo Idowu-Fearon en una declaración del 6 de abril. “La Iglesia está llamada a amar y proteger a todos sin discriminación, ‘amar a la persona, pero odiar al pecado’ cualquiera que pueda ser este pecado, corrupción, pecados sexuales de todas clases, abuso de poder o cualquier otra cosa.“Para la mayoría de los cristianos africanos, la Biblia juzga la cultura, incluida la cultura africana. Como cristianos africanos debemos aceptar otras culturas y la manera que ellas tienen también de entender la relación de la Biblia con la cultura”, añadió. “Yo acepto y promuevo una cultura de respeto por tales diferencias”.El obispo de Connecticut, Ian Douglas, miembro del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que había conocido a Idowu-Fearon durante más de una década a través de una variedad de organismos y responsabilidades interanglicanas y lo encuentra “comprometido con la misión reconciliadora de Dios, tanto entre personas de diferentes fes como entre las iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana”.Douglas dijo a ENS que mientras Idowu-Fearon estudiaba en el Seminario de Hartford en los años 90, el obispo nigeriano entabló amistades muy estrechas con líderes y parroquias de la Iglesia Episcopal en Connecticut. “Estas relaciones se mantienen hasta el día de hoy, y…nos han ayudado a conocer y vivir mejor la plenitud de nuestra unidad en Cristo”, afirmó Douglas.Una de esas relaciones es con la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad [Trinity Episcopal Church], la cual cada verano auspicia un viaje de misión médica a la Diócesis de Kaduna (la de Idowu-Fearon) en el norte de Nigeria.El Ven. Tom Furrer, rector de la iglesia de La Trinidad en Tariffville, Connecticut, comparte un momento divertido con el arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon en la catedral de San Miguel, en Kaduna, el día en que Furrer convirtió en arcediano de esa diócesis. Foto cortesía de la iglesia de La Trinidad.Ha trabajado con Idowu-Fearon durante 15 años“En tanto otros lo conocen como un experto a escala mundial en las relaciones cristiano-musulmanas, yo le conozco mejor como amigo personal, mentor y pastor”, dijo Furrer, que es el arcediano de la diócesis de Kaduna y presidente de Kateri Medical Services, Inc., una corporación sin fines de lucro que financia y facilita atención médica a campesinos pobres del norte de Nigeria en asociación con la Diócesis de Kaduna.“La Comunión Anglicana ha hecho bien al elegir a este hombre sabio, humilde, servicial como su próximo secretario general”, dijo Furrer a ENS. “Él ama a nuestro Señor Jesucristo y ama al Cuerpo de Cristo en la tierra. Él hará todo lo que pueda por tender puentes y restañar nuestras heridas”.Furrer conoció a Idowu-Fearon inmediatamente después de los disturbios de Kaduna en 2000, cuando mataron a cientos de cristianos y otros millares más quedaron sin hogar. “Él estaba profundamente perturbado y visiblemente conmovido por la masacre y el sufrimiento de personas muy pobres que fueron la mayoría de las víctimas de los disturbios”, dijo Furrer. “Si bien su comprensión de las relaciones cristiano-musulmanas es intelectualmente muy sólida, no se trata fundamentalmente de un asunto teórico, sino de un asunto pastoral. Él ha visto de primera mano… los devastadores efectos de las rivalidades interreligiosas. Y ha trabajado ‘en las trincheras’ con líderes musulmanes y cristianos para hacer la paz”.Durante las misiones médicas anuales, la parroquia de Connecticut y la diócesis de Kaduna han colaborado “para llevar atención médica y amor a millares de personas de la población rural, de los cuales un tercio aproximadamente son musulmanes”, apuntaba Furrer. “Nuestro objetivo siempre es tender puentes de respeto y tolerancia mutuos. He observado a Josiah relacionarse con personas muy pobres y marginadas —musulmanes y cristianos de todas las denominaciones— con gran compasión, humildad y gracia. Para él, la reconciliación y el tender puentes son [tareas] profundamente personales y pastorales”.Idowu-Fearon ha predicado y enseñado en la iglesia de La Trinidad al menos 30 veces a lo largo de la última década y “es muy querido por la comunidad” en Tariffville, dijo Furrer. “Somos una parroquia relativamente pequeña en un pueblo pequeño… y sin embargo él siempre ha encontrado el tiempo para visitarnos y estar aquí para ocasiones especiales”.El arzobispo Josiah Idowu-Fearon presenta el Premio de Reconocimiento de la Diócesis de Kaduna a una feligresa de La Trinidad por su papel en la recaudación de fondos para la clínica de la Diócesis de Kaduna. Foto cortesía de la iglesia de La Trinidad.Hace tres años, la iglesia de La Trinidad honró a una mujer de la parroquia que había trabajado arduamente en la recaudación de fondos para la clínica de la Diócesis de Kaduna y quien se estaba muriendo de cáncer. “Josiah viajó especialmente sólo para honrar a la mujer con el Premio de Reconocimiento de la Diócesis de Kaduna”, dijo Furrer. “La mujer murió dos semanas más tarde. Me dijo que su visita le significó mucho más que cualquier otra cosa que hubieran hecho por ella en toda su vida. En la actualidad, el reconocimiento que él le entregó y una foto de ella con Josiah se destacan de manera prominente en el hogar de su viudo.Cuando el Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana se reunió a fines de noviembre de 2014, “existía el claro cometido que el nuevo secretario general debía ser ante todo un embajador del amor reconciliador de Cristo para todas las personas”, dijo Douglas, reconociendo que se le dio una primera prioridad a captar candidatos de África, Asia, América Latina y el Pacífico, dado que los últimos cinco titulares han sido de Irlanda, Estados Unidos e Inglaterra. Un “equipo de captación” formado como un subcomité del Comité Permanente, era ampliamente representativo de la diversidad de la Comunión Anglicana, afirmó Douglas. “Si bien yo no fui parte del equipo de captación, sí confío que éste tomó en consideración esas prioridades del Comité Permanente al seleccionar al arzobispo Josiah”.La obispa primada Katharine Jefferts Schori, quien también es miembro del Comité Permanente de la Comunión Anglicana, dijo que Idowu-Fearon “ha trabajado arduamente para mantener el diálogo entre personas que con frecuencia no querrían hablarse”.Idowu-Fearon se convirtió en obispo de Kaduna en 1998, y es el actual director del Centro de Estudios Anglicanos de Kaduna. Antes de eso, sirvió como obispo de Sokoto, guardián en el Colegio [universitario] de Teología de San Francisco de Asís en Wusasa, y rector de la catedral de San Miguel [St. Michael’s] en Kaduna.Idowu-Fearon tiene un doctorado en sociología y un diploma de postgrado en pedagogía de la Universidad Ahmadu Bello de Nigeria; una maestría en Teología Islámica de la Universidad de Birmingham y una licenciatura en teología de la Universidad de Durham.Ha impartido conferencias y ha publicado ampliamente sobre el tema de las relaciones cristiano-musulmanas. Pertenece a toda una variedad de organismos interreligiosos nacionales y ha trabajado anteriormente con la Oficina de la Comunión Anglicana y el Palacio de Lambeth en varios proyectos. Idowu-Fearon ha sido galardonado como Oficial de la Orden del Níger, ha recibido la Cruz del Arzobispo de Cantórbery, el Premio de San Agustín y es [miembro del Colegio] de los Seis Predicadores de Cantórbery.Idowu-Fearon, que está casado con Comfort y tiene dos hijos, Ibrahim y Ninma, se espera que asuma su puesto en julio de 2015.Idowu-Fearon se cuenta entre dos docenas de obispos de África y Norteamérica que, en mayo de 2014, como parte de la quinta Consulta de Obispos Anglicanos en diálogo, reunidos en Coventry, Inglaterra, renovaron su promesa de reconciliación en la Comunión Anglicana y de andar juntos como una familia a pesar de las profundas diferencias culturales y teológicas.El Rvdmo. Mark MacDonald, obispo indígena de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá, ha conocido a Idowu-Fearon durante 17 años, desde que ambos compartieron el mismo dormitorio en la Conferencia de Lambeth de 1998. MacDonald definió el nombramiento como “la mejor de las noticias” y habló de Idowu-Fearon como “centrado en Cristo, imparcial ante una falta y amante y siervo sincero de esa comunión que Dios nos ha dado en la Comunión Anglicana”.“Es mi porción particular de esta Comunión, es útil y alentador notar que él entiende y vive, guiado por la Escritura, en la perspectiva del mundo tanto de Occidente como del modo de vida más tradicional de… los pobres, la mayoría del mundo”, dijo MacDonald a ENS. “No atrapado en el reduccionismo de Occidente, el conoce sus dones, así como el dolor de su legado. Al igual que los mejores de los nuestros aquí, yo creo que él tiene la capacidad de hablar desde un futuro donde encontramos nuestra común humanidad —en Cristo y, llamando en Cristo, al resto de la creación y la humanidad— de un modo que junte lo mejor de Occidente con la sabiduría y la profundidad de nuestros modos de vida tradicionales”.El Rdo. Olav Fykse Tveit, secretario general del Consejo Mundial de Iglesias, envió una carta a Idowu-Fearon felicitándolo por el nombramiento y reconociendo que es un “papel que exige una gran responsabilidad y liderazgo en la medida en que usted imparte una visión para la diversidad de las provincias anglicanas. Está llamado a servir las necesidades de la Comunión, promocionando causas de esperanza y celebración, y encontrando firmes respuestas a sus desafíos.“Este ministerio que usted está asumiendo es valioso y sagrado. Tiene la posibilidad de profundizar las relaciones dentro de la Comunión y fuera de ella, y de dar testimonio del espíritu de reconciliación a través de su propia fidelidad y visión”, añadió Tveit.Idowu-Fearon sirvió en el Comité Central del CMI de 2006 a 2013 y participó en la Consulta Internacional Cristiano-Musulmana de Ginebra en noviembre de 2010.“Su récord excepcional de labor dedicada a las relaciones cristiano-musulmanas es un don específico que le lleva a su nuevo papel”, decía Tveit en su carta. “Desarrollar el papel de las iglesias como hacedoras de la paz y asociadas en el diálogo en un momento cuando la violencia religiosamente motivada está causando devastación a tantos es una urgente demanda para todos nosotros fieles cristianos”.Tveit afirmaba que las iglesias de la Comunión Anglicana “son líderes dinámicos en la vida de nuestra fraternidad de iglesias, por lo cual damos gracias a Dios. Oramos que su sabiduría y experiencia infundirán no sólo las actividades de la Comunión Anglicana a este respecto, sino también las de la amplia familia ecuménica. Buscamos trabajar con usted en ésta y otras muchas áreas de nuestra común vida cristiana”.– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service. Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

England vs Australia 2003 RWC Final

first_imgSaturday Oct 6, 2007 England vs Australia 2003 RWC Final With a couple of hours left before kick off in the Australia vs England Quarter Final of this years tournament, I’ve realised that there is one very important video that I still don’t have in this extensive archive – the 2003 World Cup Final. ADVERTISEMENTFour years ago England were a team that had been built up over a few seasons by their astute coach Sir Clive Woodward. In a leader they had the uncompromising Martin Johnson, and in a flyhalf they had the best player in the tournament – Jonny Wilkinson.All the ingredients were right for a historical occasion, and with a mix of great play and tremendous courage, England lifted the trophy on that eventful day at the Telstra Stadium in Sydney.Jason Robinson scored an absolute classic in the corner from a pinpoint pass from Wilkinson, and then right at the end of injury time, Jonny Wilkinson slotted a dropkick with his right foot (he’s naturally left footed) to put England in the lead and allow captain Martin Johnson to lift the William Webb Ellis trophy for the first time in England’s history.So when the same two teams meet today at the Stade Velodrome in their crunch quarter final clash, the first game of the knockout stages, will England be able to repeat history and beat the Aussies? Or will the wily Wallabies get some revenge and send the World Champions packing.With England not on top form in this years tournament, a betting man would say Australia will be too strong. England have suffered a lot of unfortunate injuries of late and Australia are looking strong as usual.But, lets not forget that England do have World Cup winners in their side. Jonny Wilkinson, Lawrence Dallaglio and Jason Robinson all know what it’s like to taste victory on the big occasion. As does George Gregan for Australia of course.ADVERTISEMENTWhatever the result, it’s going to be a cracking match and could have a great bearing on the outcome of the tournament.

Garcias House / Warm Architects

first_img Houses “COPY” Projects Architects: Warm Architects Area Area of this architecture project “COPY” Garcias House / Warm ArchitectsSave this projectSaveGarcias House / Warm Architects Garcias House / Warm Architects photographs:  Wacho EspinosaPhotographs:  Wacho EspinosaSave this picture!© Wacho EspinosaText description provided by the architects. Garcias House is located on a 273 square meter lot in a fast growing residential area of Cancun. The lot is adjacent in its northern and western sides with other residential lots, while it faces greenery to the east and the street to the south. The strategy for this project was to limit the habitable volume on the western side, in order to make the most of the view, the shadow and incorporate the public greenery with the interior of the house, thru the empty space between them.Save this picture!© Wacho EspinosaThis house welcomes you with an double-height ceiling as a transitional element of the two-story construction. Revealing, on one side, the totality of the lot with exterior views of the terrace and the adjacent greenery and on the other side, the large-format sculpture designed by the architects out of the reclaimed wood beams from the house’s construction. Save this picture!© Wacho EspinosaThe program cover the needs of a couple without children, which allows an open and dynamic interior living, connecting all spaces functionally and visually. In the first level, the public program widens and integrates with the pool and terrace, creating a space for interior/exterior use. The second level, blocks solar over-heat and future neighboring constructions. The interior spaces are endowed with quality stemming from a second double-height ceiling in the dining area, which allows views from the bedrooms through the living areas, extending to the pool and the terrace.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe core of the materials used for this project is focused on concrete in different variations: polished and glossed in the interior floors, raw polished in the exterior and as “stucco” on the facade’s volume. A gradation in the tones of the concrete is sought-after with the shading of the regional additives (sas cab), complementing the chromatic scheme with black quarry tile, white blading and Sas-cab in the exterior.Save this picture!© Wacho EspinosaThe strategy behind the design, the low density walls and the materials chosen, allowed a fully developed project for a total of $6,200.00 Pesos per square meter, one of the client’s biggest priorities.Project gallerySee allShow lessTrading “Should” for “Could”: Opening up Debate on the Obama Library DesignArticles”Every Building is a Social Critique” – Polshek Describes His Oeuvre in Latest BookMisc Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/504296/garcias-house-warm-architects Clipboard Mexico Area:  215 m² Area:  215 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Year:  Year:  ArchDaily 2014 Save this picture!© Wacho Espinosa+ 34 Share 2014 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/504296/garcias-house-warm-architects Clipboard CopyHouses•Cancún, Mexico CopyAbout this officeWarm ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesCancúnHousesMexicoPublished on May 11, 2014Cite: “Garcias House / Warm Architects” 11 May 2014.

Institute of Fundraising to receive Royal Charter status

first_imgMessage to membersIn a message to members today, Peter Lewis, chief executive of the Institute of Fundraising, said:“This is a huge achievement less than 37 years after a few volunteers met for the first time to form what is today the Institute of Fundraising. It demonstrates, through the Royal Charter, formal public recognition across the UK of fundraising as a profession, and of the specialist professional skills fundraisers bring to their work, making the world a better place.“On behalf of the staff team at the Institute I would like to congratulate our members and volunteers who have created the organisation we are today. Without your commitment to the profession, to professional standards, and to your own professional development the Institute would not be receiving this public recognition.”  249 total views,  1 views today Advertisement Inclusion, professionalism and communityThe trustees have set out three principles that must be met as it takes forward its chartered status. These covered inclusion, professionalism and community.In terms of inclusion the trustees have stated: “We must take forward chartered status in a way that contributes to our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion both within the profession and the Institute itself. Gaining chartered status should support our journey to become a truly inclusive profession where everyone is the right fit.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4 The Institute of Fundraising and the fundraising profession have been recognised with the Queen’s approval this week of an Order granting the Institute a Royal Charter.Upon receipt of the Royal Seal, the Institute will legally become the Chartered Institute of Fundraising. The Privy Council is understood to be attempting to achieve this in time for the Institute to start the new financial year as the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.According to the list of business conducted by the Privy Council held by the Queen at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday, the Institute of Fundraising joined the Royal Anthropological Institute as organisations being granted Charters of Incorporation.SEE ALSO: Institute of Fundraising to apply formally for Chartered status (16 April 2019)The Privy Councillors in attendance were The Rt Hon Jacob Rees-Mogg (Lord President), The Rt Hon Priti Patel, The Rt Hon Alok Sharma and The Rt Hon Gavin Williamson CBE.The award comes 37 years after the Institute of Fundraising was set up by a small group of volunteers, and originally called the Institute of Charity Fundraising Managers (ICFM). Institute of Fundraising to receive Royal Charter status Becoming a chartered instituteThe journey to chartered status has taken five years of formal work, following previous discussions on the topic.Following discussions within the Institute, in March 2015, with the support of its Board and members, the Institute submitted an Informal Memorandum to the Privy Council. This is the first stage in the process to becoming a chartered body.This application was put on hold within months by the Privy Council in the summer of 2015 following the public and media criticism of some fundraising methods by some charities.The application was put on hold again until the Institute could demonstrate that it had delivered on the recommendations set out by the review of charity fundraising led by Sir Stuart Etherington over the summer of 2015. These included merging with the Public Fundraising Regulatory Association in 2016 to create a single membership body for the fundraising community, and transferring the Code of Fundraising Practice to the newly established Fundraising Regulator.Discussions with the Privy Council resumed in 2018, and in January 2019 the Institute was granted permission to proceed with a formal petition for chartered status.This was followed by a consultation with members. In the membership’s vote on the decision to apply for chartered status, 96.8% of members voted to support the move.The formal Petition to the Privy Council was made on 1 July 2019 to establish a new royal chartered body to be known as the Chartered Institute of Fundraising.You can read the proposed draft Charter, Byelaws and Regulations.

Howard Lake | 14 February 2020 | News Why a Royal Charter?The grant of the Royal Charter symbolises an enhanced recognition of the profession of fundraising at government level. It is formal public recognition across the UK of fundraising as a profession and of fundraisers’ specialist professional skills.It will provide equivalence with similar professions such as the Chartered Institute of Marketing, Chartered Institute of Public Relations, or Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.To achieve it the fundraising profession has had to secure and earn the support of each of the governments around the UK, each of which had formally to support the Institute’s petition, as well as regulators including the Charity Commission, OSCR and the Charity Commission of Northern Ireland.Support for the move by civil servants in all of these jurisdictions has been important in the process.Chartered status confers increased status and credibility for the Institute, and to its training and educational activities. Members of the Institute are expected to benefit from the external recognition of fundraising as a profession and the enhanced reputation of fundraising as a career.Chartered status has been one of the Institute’s formal objectives for the last six years, as part of its vision for ‘Excellent Fundraising for a Better World’.  250 total views,  2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis4last_img read more

Class struggle sharpens as LIU locks out its faculty

first_imgTeachers and students at mass protest of lockout, Sept. 7.This writer worked in the City University of New York’s computer center for 24 years. Before that, he taught full and part time at various institutions.A few hours after their union’s contract expired on Aug. 31, all 400 members of the Long Island University Faculty Federation, an affiliate of the American Federation of Labor, had their pay and health benefits stopped, their email accounts frozen and were told to stay out of the campus. The administration had locked them out.Many experts in labor history assert that it is the first lockout in higher education, but if the LIU administration wins, it certainly won’t be the last.As a college degree has become a requirement for more jobs, colleges have turned to more low-paid, temporary faculty, called adjuncts, to expand instruction. In general, adjuncts have no job security.College teaching is becoming a high-skilled, low-paid job.LIU, which is the new brand name of Long Island University, said it locked the union members out to preempt a strike. The union leadership, to the contrary, indicated at a mass picket on the first day of classes, Sept. 7, that the union was prepared to work without a contract. They pointed to their colleagues at the Professional Staff Congress, representing the faculty and staff at the City University of New York, who worked for seven years without a contract.The union members had overwhelmingly rejected the contract proposed by the LIU administration on Sept. 6. The proposal left intact the substantial disparity of salaries between LIU Brooklyn and LIU Post, a satellite campus in eastern Nassau County. It had also cut the already low adjunct pay by 20 to 30 percent.The LIU administration has been preparing for this aggressive lockout. All summer, its human relations office has been hiring replacement teachers, what union members describe as “scabs.” Generally, university and college subject departments and programs, which have the skills to evaluate teacher qualifications, make these decisions to hire. Human Relations, which usually fills out the paperwork, this time actively sought the scabs.While LIU was claiming that every class was staffed by a qualified teacher, students at the Sept. 7 demonstration and since have pointed to obvious deficiencies. The union has documented these deficiencies in letters it has sent to 14 accrediting agencies. (LIUFF.net)Students have portrayed their very expensive education as totally disorganized and have walked out and held sit-ins at various offices. They want their real teachers back.In a letter sent to students, the LIU administration claimed that every dollar that would go to faculty raises would be a dollar taken from student scholarships. Speakers at the Sept. 7 rally called this letter a blatant lie.Support from other education unions has been quick to come. The AFT and the New York State United Teachers, which is a federation of all the education unions from pre-K to university in New York state, expressed firm support. The Carpenters union, whose members at LIU don’t have a contract, and the Professional Staff Congress both sent major delegations to the Sept. 7 picket line.English professor Deborah Mutnick, a member of the union executive committee, told the Sept. 4 Nation magazine: “I do feel personally like we’re fighting for something much bigger than this contract. What’s happening in higher education, what kind of country are we going to become?

At the same time, Ahmadinejad’s allies are in the process of launching new publications that will be extremely useful for his re-election campaign.”The Commission for Press Authorisation and Press Surveillance, an offshoot of the Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, ordered the Farsi-language Shahrvand Emrouz’s suspension on 5 November for “publishing political articles without an appropriate licence.” According to the commission, it is only licensed for coverage of cultural and social developments.Launched in March 2007 by Mohamad Atrianfar, an ally of former President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Shahrvand Emrouz is produced by the former staff of Shargh, a pro-reform daily that was banned in 2007.Ahmadinejad allies started up two new daily newspapers in the past month. Khorshid (“The Sun” in Farsi) was launched on 4 October by a former government spokesman, with funding from the social security agency, but has already stopped appearing following a dispute within the management. The other daily, Vatan Emrouz (“Fatherland Today”), was launched just a few days ago by a former Ahmadinejad adviser.The online journalist who has just received a six-month jail sentence for “activity liable to harm national security” is Solmaz Igder of the Canon Zeman Irani (http://www.irwomen.com) website. Handed down by a revolutionary court in Rai (south of Tehran), the sentence was notified to Igder orally. The court’s refusal to give her any written notification of the sentence has prevented her from getting a lawyer for an appeal.“The Iranian courts are totally subservient to the government,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Dissident journalists never get a fair trial and now Solmaz Igder is even being denied the possibility of appealing against her conviction.”Igder was previously arrested on 29 August for taking part in an annual demonstration by relatives of political prisoners executed in 1988 on Ayatollah Khomeini’s orders. The demonstrations had been banned that day. She was released from Evin prison on 10 September on payment of 1 billion rials (85,000 euros)in bail.

‘First Remand Cannot Be Via Video Linkage’: Madras HC Directs Production Of Accused Before Magistrate, Albeit Non-Jurisdictional, Where Place Of Arrest Is Outside State [Read Order]

N. Prakash and B. Pugalendhi said that the aforesaid direction was in view the Court’s observation of “certain difficulties in respect of production of accused involved in a case in Tamil Nadu/Puducherry, but, arrested outside the State, as inter-State transport has been suspended”.The Division Bench acknowledged that Under Rule 6(1) of the Tamil Nadu Criminal Rules of Practice, 2019, first remand cannot be via video linkage, but by physical production of the accused before the Court.The said Rule stipulates that No accused shall be placed under remand for the first time, unless he is produced physically. At the time of remand, the Judge/Magistrate shall see if there is any injury on the person of the accused. Any such injury shall be recorded in the remand order and the remand warrant as well. It is permissible to make extensions of remand through the medium of electronic video linkage.The reiteration of this Rule by the Court assumes significance in the light of the recent horrific custodial deaths of a father-son duo in the state, of which suo motu cognisance has been taken by the same division bench.The case has raised troubling questions about Magistrates fulfilling their duty in protecting life and personal liberty against arbitrary assaults of the police.What has come to the fore as a major lapse in the case is that, as per preliminary reports, Jeyaraj and Bennix were remanded despite both of them being severely injured. Curiously, the FIR in the instant case also mentioned that the accused had “suffered internal injuries”.In this regard, it is to be noted that Section 167(2), proviso (b) of the Code of Criminal Procedure insists on the physical production of the accused before the Magistrate at the first instance. The provision permits production via video conferencing only for subsequent extension of remands. This is to ensure that the accused is physically examined by the Magistrate at the first instance. This provision, if properly complied, acts as a safeguard against custodial violence.In the light of COVID-19 pandemic, many Courts have diluted the mandatory requirement of physical production of accused for the purposes of first remand.The video conferencing rules adopted by Delhi High Court state that in exceptional circumstances, judicial remand in the first instance or police remand can be granted via video conferencing for reasons recorded in writing.The Karnataka HC has also ruled that a Magistrate can authorize the remand of an accused for the first time via video conferencing in exceptional circumstances in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic, despite the bar under Section 167(2)(a) CrPC.On Tuesday, the division bench at the Madurai Seat, found that “the COVID19 pandemic situation has not reduced and is in fact increasing resulting in lock down announced by the State Government. Inter-state transport has not been resumed”.In such view of the matter, the bench directed the extension of various interim orders till July 31 subject to the right of the aggrieved party to move for vacating the order where it causes undue prejudice. The bench also directed that all remands both under Section 167 Cr.P.C. and Section 309 Cr.P.C., will stand extended till July 31 without prejudice to the right of the prisoner to be released on bail in the meanwhile.Click Here To Download Order[Read Order]Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
