Leon Sampson, a deacon and deputy from the Episcopal Church of Navajoland, spoke to the importance of Resolution C008, which calls for the further advancement of the House of Bishops’ 2011 commitment “‘to advocate for a fair, ambitious, and binding climate treaty’ by making every effort to fully and completely participate in future meetings of the United Nations Conference of Parties on Climate Change as an active, faithful and engaged voice for all of God’s good earth.”Bishops addressed the earth’s unfolding environmental crisis during a meeting in Quito, Ecuador, in a pastoral teaching to the church in which they said, “The mounting urgency of our environmental crisis challenges us at this time to confess ‘our self-indulgent appetites and ways,’ ‘our waste and pollution of God’s creation,’ and ‘our lack of concern for those who come after us’ (Ash Wednesday Liturgy, Book of Common Prayer, p. 268). It also challenges us to amend our lives and to work for environmental justice and for more environmentally sustainable practices.“Christians cannot be indifferent to global warming, pollution, natural resource depletion, species extinctions, and habitat destruction, all of which threaten life on our planet. Because so many of these threats are driven by greed, we must also actively seek to create more compassionate and sustainable economies that support the well-being of all God’s creation.”Further extraction of natural resources in Bears Ears – which extends into Navajoland – and other proposed oil, gas and mining projects in Navajoland provide much-needed jobs, but also threaten people’s health and the environment, said Sampson.In December 2017, the Trump administration announced it would reduce by 2 million acres two national monuments, Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante. The shrinking of the two monuments in Utah opens up the possibility of oil, gas and other natural resource development and represents the largest reduction of federal land protection in U.S. history.In April, a Native American advocacy group appealed the Trump administration’s decision to the United Nations, claiming desecration of a sacred site is a human rights violation.Most of the environmental stewardship and care of creation resolutions are listed here. In September 2016, Presiding Bishop Michael Curry identified care for creation as one of the three pillars of the Episcopal branch of the Jesus Movement, along with reconciliation and evangelism.The committee called on the Rev. Melanie Mullen, the church’s director of reconciliation, justice and creation care, to testify to Resolution A013 as to the need of an officer to oversee the stewardship of creation. The officer would oversee the Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation’s grant program.The 78th General Convention created an Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation during its meeting in Salt Lake City in 2015. It took some months for the advisory council to convene, but once it did, it quickly began a small grant program, awarding 40 grants to projects throughout the Episcopal Church, and it oversees three environmental justice sites.Episcopal Camps and Conference Centers Director Bill Slocumb spoke in favor of Resolution A010, which calls for planting “Paris Groves” at each of the church’s 85 camps and conference centers. The groves – planted with native tree species – would “serve as a visible witness to the significance of the Paris Accord and do the practical work of sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere.” The resolution also calls on General Convention to commend all Episcopal schools, camps and conference centers in making environmental stewardship and care of creation key components of formation in the 2019-2021 triennium. It also asks for Episcopalians’ support and that each person reaffirm their baptismal vows and plant a tree in one of the groves.Emily Hopkins of the Diocese of California testified to Resolution C020, which calls for the church to “support a national tax on carbon-based fossil fuels based on the Carbon Fee and Dividend proposal of the Citizens’ Climate Lobby, which would impose a carbon fee on all fossil fuels and other greenhouse gases at the point where they first enter the economy; align U.S. emissions with the physical constraints identified by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to avoid irreversible climate change; and use this carbon fee through a trust fund to make equal monthly per-person dividend payments to all American households.”The committee suggested modifying the resolution’s title, making it clear that it is a “fee” not a “tax.”Hopkins acknowledged that the Province IX dioceses located in the Caribbean and South America would not benefit from a carbon fee and dividend; she acknowledged the contribution of resource-rich states to the building of the United States and the need for extractive-dependent states to be assisted in their transition to clean energy.Over the years, General Convention has passed more than 50 resolutions addressing environmental stewardship and creation care. This year, the Advisory Council on the Stewardship of Creation submitted 14 resolutions (read its Blue Book report here), many strengthening previous resolutions and some addressing more contemporary concerns.– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and managing editor of the Episcopal News Service.

Toilets are clogged, roofs leak, and students swelter in hot classrooms. The Governor’s budget proposal does not provide a sustainable solution for our children. AB 148 will begin discussions about the future of school financing, which may include both bond financing or tax financing, and also streamline the state facilities program, currently a burdensome layer of bureaucracy,” said Assemblymember Holden.“The time to modernize and build our school facilities is now while the economy is in good shape. Without repairing and updating our schools, we are leaving our children in unsafe classrooms that jeopardize their futures,” added Holden. “I look forward to working with my colleagues in the Legislature to adopt a sustainable school facilities plan that improves learning and teaching conditions in California’s public schools.

FARC Orders Ceasefire ahead of Peace Talks with Colombian Government

first_img The FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) ordered a unilateral ceasefire for two months to start at midnight on November 19, at the beginning of the peace talks with the Colombian government in Havana, in order to end the conflict that has extended for almost 50 years, declared their second-in-command Iván Márquez. “The FARC secretariat orders all guerrilla units throughout the country to cease all offensive military operations against the public force, as well as any sabotage actions against public and private infrastructures,” said Márquez while reading a press release. Several hours later, Colombian Minister of Defense Juan Carlos Pinzón, responded that the Army would maintain their operations against the FARC during the peace talks, as President Juan Manuel Santos had previously stated. The guerrilla leader announced the FARC’s decision moments before the peace talks began in Havana’s Convention Center, where the press was not allowed to attend. Márquez stated that this unilateral measure taken by the communist FARC “is a contribution to strengthen the necessary atmosphere of understanding, so that the parties can reach the goals desired by all Colombian citizens by means of the talks.” However, Minister Pinzón reiterated that the Army will maintain its counterinsurgency operations. “This is a very clear stand by the Public Forces: to continue working decisively to pursue these individuals that have violated all kinds of codes, standards, and that have threatened the lives and honor of Colombian citizens,” highlighted Pinzón in a press conference. “I hope they keep their word, but in reality, history shows that this terrorist organization has never been honest about anything,” he criticized. The government chief of negotiations, Humberto de la Calle, as well as President Santos, had declared repeatedly that the Army would keep its operations during the peace talks.

3 easy ways to save money this fall

John manages the content on the site, including current news, editorial, press releases, jobs and events. He keeps the credit union … Web: www.cuinsight.com Details You probably spent a decent amount of money this summer on vacations and just having fun in general. Then you had to spend money on all kinds of things so your kids were ready to go back to school. The sad part? The holidays aren’t too far off. If you need a few easy ways to save money this fall, here’s 3 ideas for you.Keep your systems off: If you’re anything like me, you’ve been keeping your house frosty during these hot summer months. Now that it’s starting to cool down slightly it’s a good time to think about shutting it off before the cold weather arrives. If you can wait until closer to November to turn your heater on, you can probably save a few hundred bucks. That’ll come in handy on Black Friday.Stop going out so much: In the summer, it’s fun to spend time and money doing fun things around town. Now that it’s cooling off, take advantage. Instead of dining out, break out that Crock-Pot, make a big batch of chili, and enjoy a hot bowl on a cool evening on your back porch. Haven’t been using that gym membership you bought back in January? Cancel it, and go for a run or a bike ride in the great outdoors. It’s finally cool enough that you won’t melt.Unsubscribe: Is your inbox full of promotional emails? I know mine is chocked full of emails from Amazon, Academy Sports, and tons of other retailers. As Christmas is right around the corner, it may be a good idea to unsubscribe to some of those. Sure, you might need some gift ideas for family, but you also may be tempted to buy a few discounted items for yourself. If you need help with unsubscribes, check out Unroll.Me.last_img read more

Eaton, Dibaba Top 2015, says Track And Field News

first_img World records Dibaba and Wlodarczyk both set world records – three minutes 50.07 seconds for the 1500 and 81.08 metres for the hammer throw, respectively – before their wins at the World Championships. The Track and Field News panel could only separate them by three points, 312 to 309. In fact, 17 members of the panel felt that the Pole was number one compared to 16 who voted for Dibaba. Holland’s Dafne Schippers finished third with Jamaica’s 100-metre World champion, Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce, appearing at number six. Bolt and Fraser-Pryce were voted as the year’s top performers in the men’s 200 metres and the women’s 100m, respectively. American Justin Gatlin, and not Bolt, is the magazine’s number one in the 100 metres. Details aren’t available yet on the website, but in its 2014 Annual World Rankings issue, Track and Field said: “As important as major meets are, we should also note that no competition, not even the Olympic Games, is the be-all, end-all. We’re looking for people who maintain high standards over a whole year.” Restricted by injuries, Bolt did the 100 metres in only three 2015 athletics meetings, with clockings of 10.12, 9.87 and 9.79 seconds, respectively. The latter time pipped Gatlin in the World Championships. That was the American’s only loss of a seven-meet season that yielded times of 9.74, the fastest in 2015, 9.75 twice, 9.77, 9.78, 9.80 behind Bolt at the Worlds and 9.98 seconds. Gatlin isn’t the only athlete to top the rankings in an individual event despite losing at the World Championships. Others include Mutaz Essa Barshim of Qatar, who was fourth in the high jump at the Worlds, French pole vault star Renaud Lavillenie, Kenyan Eunice Sum in the 800 metres, Croatian discus thrower Sandra Perkovic and American Dawn Harper-Nelson, who fell in the semis of the 100-metre hurdles. The respected United States publication, Track and Field News, has named American Ashton Eaton and Genzebe Dibaba of Ethiopia as its Athletes of the Year for 2015. Despite contesting just one decathlon for the entire season, Eaton won the bulk of the votes from a 36-member international panel to emerge ahead of triple jumper Christian Taylor and Jamaican sprinter supreme Usain Bolt. It was far closer among the women, with Dibaba edging Poland’s Anita Wlodarczyk, the 2014 Athlete of the Year. According to a notification appearing on the magazine’s Internet site, Eaton’s world record performance – 9,045 points – at the World Championships tipped the voting his way. In fact, it was voted the Performance of the Year. The magazine’s website notes that two members of the panel objected to the season on the grounds that Eaton’s single decathlon did not ‘constitute a full season’.last_img read more

But this season was when everything materialized for Lyceum, completing one of the biggest turns in the local collegiate scene after sweeping the eliminations and establishing itself as a legitimate title contender.Perez was also a key cog in making that shift a reality, matching his hype with a Season Most Valuable Player after averaging 19.3 points, 6.5 rebounds, 3.6 assists, and 1.9 steals.The Pangasinense forward continued that tear in the Finals, where he anchored the surprise top-seed Pirates in the tussle against the Red Lions and averaged 23.5 points, 5.0 rebounds, 3.5 assists, and 1.5 steals.Unfortunately, Lyceum settled for second place.However, the 23-year-old Perez argued that the Pirates have nothing to be ashamed about with how they fared this year.ADVERTISEMENT “When we’re winning, we didn’t let go of each other. The change started in all of us and that culture will not change.
