Foto de Andrew Burton/REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service] Un obispo jubilado y un sacerdote de la diócesis episcopal de Nueva York se encuentran entre las siete personas declarados culpables el 18 de junio de allanar un terreno propiedad de la iglesia episcopal de La Trinidad en Wall Street, durante una manifestación del movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, y sentenciados a cuatro días de trabajo comunitario.George Packard, Obispo episcopal jubilado y ex obispo sufragáneo para las institutos armados y ministerios federales, y Earl Kooperkamp, rector de la iglesia episcopal de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Harlem, enfrentaban hasta 90 días de prisión por el más grave de los cargos, le había dicho antes a ENS Gideon Oliver, abogado de Packard.Mark Adams, un octavo acusado, fue declarado culpable de allanamiento y de cargos adicionales de un delito contra la propiedad y de posesión de instrumentos para el robo, por intentar supuestamente usar alicates para cortar la cerca que bordea la propiedad. Lo sentenciaron a 45 días de prisión en Rikers Island y se lo llevaron esposado del tribunal, dijo Oliver en una entrevista telefónica luego del juicio.“Estamos considerando si apelamos o no”, agregó. “Tenemos 30 días para tomar esa decisión. Creo que, por el momento todos nos concentramos en apoyar a Mark”.En una declaración publicada en la página web de la Trinidad, el rector, Rdo. James Cooper, dijo que la iglesia apoyaba muchos de los principios inherentes al movimiento de Ocupar Wall Street y seguiría acogiendo a los que protestaban en sus instalaciones de la vecindad de Wall Street, pero agregó que “no apoya la ocupación de propiedad privada”.En el juicio, celebrado el 18 de junio, el testimonio de Cooper “se concentró fundamentalmente en la postura de [la iglesia de] La Trinidad de no apoyar un abierto acampamento en la Plaza Duarte ni en dar permiso para ello”, dijo Linda Hanick, encargada de comunicaciones y vicepresidente de comunicaciones y mercadeo de la iglesia.Packard y Kooperkamp se encontraban entre 65 personas que fueron arrestadas el 17 de diciembre -entre ellas los sacerdotes de Long Island, Rdos. John Merz y Michael Sniffen- luego de penetrar en la propiedad de la Plaza Duarte en el Bajo Manhattan como parte de una actividad de Ocupar Wall Street con la que querían conmemorar el tercer mes de que se iniciara el movimiento.Un vídeo del 17 de diciembre mostraba a Packard subiendo por una escalera que los manifestantes habían recostado a la cerca y descendiendo al terreno dentro de la propiedad, la primera persona en entrar al lugar.OWS había estado cabildeando con la iglesia de La Trinidad para usar el espacio como un campamento de invierno, luego del desalojo de que había sido objeto el 15 de noviembre en el parque Zuccotti, cerca de la iglesia. La Trinidad rehusó, citando la falta de instalaciones sanitarias en el lugar y un contrato de arrendamiento con el Consejo Cultural del Bajo Manhattan que usa el terreno para periódicas instalaciones de arte. Packard había estado tratando de obtener un acuerdo entre los miembros de OWS y La Trinidad.El 18 de junio, dijo Oliver, “el obispo Packard testificó acerca de sus experiencias con el rector Cooper y con La Trinidad sobre su intento de actuar como un mediador entre Ocupar Wall Street y la iglesia”.“Él testificó que tenía la creencia de que el rector Cooper y la Trinidad se mostrarían indulgentes, y argüimos que desde el punto de vista legal eso se traducía en una creencia sincera y de buena fe de que tenía licencia o autoridad para entrar en el terreno”, dijo Oliver. “El juez rechazó ese argumento legal”.Oliver dijo estar “desencantado más que sorprendido” de que el juez Matthew Sciarrino declarara culpables a los ocho acusados en un proceso sin jurado. “El sistema legal está concebido para defender la propiedad privada”.“De algún modo, las condenas fortalecieron aún más los argumentos morales”, agregó.Packard dijo estar sorprendido y entristecido por el resultado del juicio. Habló con ENS desde un teléfono móvil mientras asistía, luego del juicio, a una conferencia en apoyo de Adams, quién él dijo que se había “convertido en el chivo expiatorio” por los hechos del 17 de diciembre. El fiscal recomendó una sentencia de 30 días, pero a Adams le impusieron 45 días.“Nosotros ocho [los acusados] nos sentimos como vinculados en una hermandad”, afirmó. “Nos sentimos como si nos hubieran arrebatado a un miembro de la familia de entre nosotros”.La Trinidad no tenía que mantener los cargos, pero optó por “proteger intereses fiduciarios”, dijo Packard a ENS. “Es muy triste. Significa, que a esto es a lo que ha llegado nuestra Iglesia. No tenemos suficientes promesas para sostener muchos lugares. Por tanto dependemos de los fondos de la inversión corporativa. Es una caricatura de lo que es el evangelio”.Otra decisión judicialMerz, sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia episcopal de la Ascensión [Ascension], en Greenpoint, Brooklyn, y Sniffen, sacerdote encargado de la iglesia episcopal de San Lucas y San Mateo [St. Luke and St. Matthew] también en Brooklyn, aceptaron una suspensión con vistas a una absolución (ACD, por su sigla en inglés) el 28 de febrero, lo cual significa que los cargos contra ellos serían desestimados y no tendrían ningún antecedente delictivo si no volvían a ser arrestados en los próximos seis meses, según dijo un funcionario del tribunal.Packard le dijo a ENS en marzo que él había decidido no aceptar una oferta de ACD porque quería tener la oportunidad de responder a los cargos en el tribunal.“Probablemente también me volverán a arrestar”, dijo Packard, que ha seguido participando en el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street y compartiendo sus experiencias en su blog. “No estoy buscando que me arresten, pero hay muchísimas posibilidades”.Lo volvieron a arrestar junto con otros veteranos de las Fuerzas Armadas durante una manifestación en la Plaza en Memoria de los Veteranos de Vietnam, en Nueva York. Hasta el 12 de junio, según le dijo Oliver a ENS, no lo habían instruido de cargos en ese caso.El proceso por allanamiento se aplazó el 14 de junio luego de que Jack Boyle, uno de los acusados, que había estado en huelga de hambre y había dejado de tomar sus medicamentos para el VIH por cuenta de los cargos, fuera arrestado la noche antes y no hubiera sido procesado aún. Cuando el juicio se reanudó esa tarde, unas 40 personas -entre ellas Merz y Sniffen y una monja católica romana- asistieron como observadores.En una entrevista telefónica en junio, Packard había expresado sorpresa por los cargos de allanamiento y la manera de su arresto.Cuando entré en la propiedad el 17 de diciembre, dijo, “sentí que estaba entrando en un área protegida y que estaba cerrada por la temporada. Yo había visitado a los que habían estado en huelga de hambre en el perímetro de ese espacio… tres o cuatro veces. He visitado ese lugar junto con Jim Cooper”.“Allanar no es una palabra que estoy acostumbrado a oír relacionada con una propiedad de la Iglesia”, añadió Packard. “Oigo expresiones como ‘refugio’ y ‘santuario’ e incluso… en el boletín de La Trinidad ellos hablan de ‘hospitalidad radical’”.“Es desconcertante para mí que La Trinidad llevara adelante el proceso de estos arrestos. Yo estaba completamente seguro de que retirarían los cargos”, dijo Packard. “Por alguna razón, yo no pongo ‘allanar’ y ‘propiedad de la Iglesia’ en la misma oración. Tal vez es que sencillamente soy ingenuo. Comparto una larga historia con la iglesia de La Trinidad”.Como obispo sufragáneo para el ministerio de los institutos armados, él pasó tiempo con el clero de la Trinidad cerca de la Zona Cero luego de los ataques terroristas del 11 de septiembre de 2001 a las torres del Centro Mundial del Comercio en la vecindad de la capilla de San Pablo, que pertenece a [la parroquia de] La Trinidad. “Esos fueron días horribles y espantosos, y La Trinidad se mostró al mundo lo gentil y estupenda institución que era. Ellos ofrecieron refrigerio y descanso [a los rescatistas]”.El 17 de diciembre “ni siquiera nos advirtieron de que nos iban a arrestar”, dijo.En otras protestas que él había presenciado como capellán, agregó, “siempre había ese pomposo anuncio por un magnavoz”, advirtiéndole a la gente que se exponían a un arresto.“Allí no hubo nada de eso” subrayó Packard.En su declaración del 18 de junio, Cooper dijo que La Trinidad tenía “un largo y activo historial en abordar las inequidades sociales y económicas.“Si bien simpatizamos con muchos de los objetivos expuestos por los manifestantes de OWS, no apoyamos la toma de una propiedad privada”, dice el comunicado. “La Trinidad instó a la oficina del Fiscal del Distrito a ofrecer arreglos no penales antes del juicio y a no solicitar sentencias de prisión para los acusados que hubieran optado por comparecer ante el tribunal. A todos los manifestantes les impusieron sanciones de cuatro días de servicio comunitario, excepto a uno de ellos que fue declarado culpable de otros delitos ocasionales y quien tenía varios casos abiertos sin relación alguna con la Plaza Duarte. Seguimos apoyando los principios básicos inherentes al movimiento Ocupar y seguiremos acogiendo a los manifestantes, como hemos acogido a todos los demás en nuestra comunidad, en nuestras instalaciones en la vecindad de Wall Street”.Según el proceso continuaba, así también las protestas y las “acciones” en Nueva York y otros lugares como parte del movimiento Ocupar [Wall Street] que ya tiene nueve meses. Inspirado en la Primavera Árabe, el movimiento Ocupar Wall Street, que intentaba protestar contra lo que los participantes veían como codicia y desigualdad galopantes en el mundo financiero, se inició el pasado 17 de septiembre. Los manifestantes acamparon en el parque Zuccotti (antes llamado Liberty Plaza Park) y crearon una comunidad con todos los elementos, desde una biblioteca circulante a grupos de trabajo que planificaban acciones y declaraciones sobre varias inquietudes sociales y económicas. Los participantes se organizaron valiéndose de un liderazgo “horizontal”, en lugar de jerárquico, y tomaban decisiones en “asambleas generales” democráticas.Surgieron otros acampamentos en ciudades y pueblos de todo el país y alrededor del mundo, incluido uno frente a la catedral de San Pablo en Londres. Al cabo de unos meses, las autoridades desbarataron la mayoría de los acampamentos.Algunos episcopales y otras personas de fe han apoyado el movimiento desde el principio. Marisa Egerston, candidata a doctora de la universidad de Harvard, organizó un grupo llamado Capellanes de la Protesta [Protest Chaplains] que participó en la iniciativa del parque Zuccotti y que ha apoyado al movimiento Ocupar Boston. En Nueva York, algunos clérigos episcopales, entre ellos el obispo diocesano de Long Island, Lawrence Provenzano, y los arrestados el 17 de diciembre, pasaron algún tiempo con los ocupantes del parque Zuccotti y han sido activos con el movimiento Occupy Faith NYC.El abogado de Packard es presidente del capítulo de la ciudad de Nueva York del Colegio Nacional de Abogados, que ha ofrecido una representación legal gratuita a los arrestados en relación con las protestas de OWS, dijo Oliver. “Yo me he ocupado de unos cuantos cientos de casos por mí mismo”.Oliver — que se define como un agnóstico criado como “judío liberal” — dijo en una entrevista el 12 de junio que se había sentido inspirado por Packard y agrupaciones religiosas afines a OWS como Occupy Faith. “Siento una afinidad política y una inspiración a partir de lo que ellos están haciendo… en el contexto de sus propias comunidades de fe. De cierto modo encarna realmente el concepto de ‘Ocupar todo’ que luego del desalojo de la Plaza de la Libertad adquirió un distinto y más urgente significado literal”.— Sharon Sheridan es corresponsal de ENS.

Instead of grouping the car park in the lower area of the building, we shift the car park to the basement and introduced serenity living life style in the low rise residence by taking advantage of the low height which is tremendously close to green scenery.

UW plays role of underdog

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoWhen the Big Ten schedule first came out, many cited the upcoming weekend as a “trap” game of sorts for the University of Wisconsin football team. Playing at Illinois, a Big Ten bottom feeder in recent years, the week before a road game against a Penn State team predicted to be among the league’s elite seemed like a potentially dangerous proposition for Wisconsin. Recent weeks have done nothing to change that. However, as the first leg of the two-game trip approaches, it is the Illini who are undefeated in Big Ten play and receiving more votes in national polls than the Nittany Lions, who are still looking for their first conference win. “They’re a very skilled team, don’t make many mistakes, and go out there and execute,” cornerback Allen Langford said. Illinois’ surprising start has a lot to do with its offense, which entered the week atop the Big Ten by a wide margin at running the football.”Up to right now, it is the best [offense] we’ve seen,” defensive lineman Mike Newkirk said. “They do execute; they’ve been playing some great ball. “It’s a big game for us. It’s a test.”Illinois has gained more than 255 yards per game on the ground thus far, nearly 40 yards more than Michigan State, the second-place team. What makes the Illini so difficult to defend is that the burden of carrying the ball is spread out across several different players.Running back Rashard Mendenhall sees the bulk of the work, but he is aided by quarterbacks Juice Williams and Eddie McGee and running back Troy Pollard — all of whom average more than 25 yards per game on the ground. “They’ve got good running backs, great speed, shifty,” Newkirk said. “I think the biggest thing right now is … they’re believing in themselves.”Illinois distributes the ball around effectively operating out of the spread, a type of offense Wisconsin has struggled to defend this season in games against UNLV and The Citadel. “In the past we haven’t done well against that type of offense,” Langford said. “Now it’s time for us to go ahead and try to be good against that type of offense.”Possibly because of past struggles facing spread offensive attacks, the fifth-ranked Badgers are a surprising 2.5-point underdog against the unranked Illini, a fact that doesn’t carry much weight in the UW locker room.”It has been made reference, maybe kind of as a motivational thing or maybe just as an eye-opener, a more realistic look to what people think we are,” Newkirk said. “We try not to pay attention to things like that too much. Everyone’s entitled to their opinion, but for us all that matters is our own opinion, and we believe.”With two games against spread offenses in the books already, Newkirk thinks the Badgers will be better prepared for what Illinois has to offer.”Maybe seeing a couple other teams earlier on in the year will give us a little bit of a look as far as [what to expect],” Newkirk said.The seemingly weekly task of answering questions about their success — or lack thereof — against the spread offense, has started to wear for some on the defense. “It is a little bit frustrating, every time. … We haven’t had the greatest performances against spread offenses to date, and every time a new one comes into town, then we’re always the question,” Newkirk said.”Hopefully we’re able to make the corrections we needed to make and that won’t be an issue anymore.”Corrections were the big story the last time Wisconsin faced Illinois. Much like the slow starts the Wisconsin defense has been plagued with this season, the Badgers fell behind big in the opening half thanks to the elusive Williams, and took a 24-10 deficit into the locker room at halftime. The defense made adjustments during the intermission and was able to hold the Illini scoreless in the second half to pull out a hard-fought 30-24 victory. “(Last year) we had a lot of fight, came back and won that game against a really good team,” Langford said. “This year it’s got to be a lot different. We gotta go out there and start fast and do our job from the start.”While the Badgers will, for the most part, know what to expect from the Illini running game, the same cannot be said for Illinois of Wisconsin’s. The running back position is a little murky backing up P.J. Hill. With Lance Smith ineligible to play due to suspension, the Badgers have many potential runners to spell Hill. The two main candidates are true freshmen: Zach Brown and Quincy Landingham. Brown has seen limited action thus far and Landingham none — he was a fall camp convert from safety — but Bielema is confident in both. A decision on who will be the main backup will be made Friday morning.”[Friday] we’ll discuss. … Actually it’s probably gonna be a good discussion because they both have practiced very, very well,” Bielema said.last_img read more

University Students File Lawsuits Alleging “Inferior” Online Classes

first_imgShe reportedly paid $7,880 in tuition and fees for the spring semester.Meanwhile, the lawsuit filed last week in Leon County circuit court against the Board of Governors by University of Florida graduate student Anthony Rojas seeks only to obtain a refund of fees, and not tuition.“Plaintiff’s claims relate solely to fees paid by Florida residents for on-campus services and do not concern fees or costs for tuition and/or room and board because students were able to complete their courses and obtain their credits for the spring semester and because the universities have offered appropriate refunds relating to room and board, but not as to fees,” the Rojas lawsuit said.All three of the lawsuits make allegations such as breach of contract and “unjust enrichment.”While the Fagundez and Rojas lawsuits seek are seeking class action status on behalf of students throughout the university system, the Egleston case focuses only on the University of Florida.Judges will end up deciding whether to allow any or all of them to proceed as class action claims. A Florida International University student this week filed what is at least the third potential class-action lawsuit seeking refunds for students within the state university system.The latest complaint, like the others, alleges “inferior” online classes when campuses closed this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.Attorneys for Sarah Fagundez, an FIU graduate student from Miami, filed the suit against the university system’s Board of Governors on Tuesday in Leon County circuit court.Meanwhile, University of Florida student Dylan Egleston filed a similar lawsuit on Monday against the UF Board of Trustees. That action also followed another case that was filed against the Board of Governors in circuit court.Fagundez argues that she and other students in the university system should receive refunds for parts of tuition and fees they paid for the spring and summer semesters.“Plaintiff (Fagundez) does not impugn defendant for taking measures to protect the public health; but the defendant must acknowledge that the education and services it now provides to students throughout the university system lack the full value of those for which plaintiff and the class paid,” Tuesday’s lawsuit against the Board of Governors said.It continues, “Not only is a fully online college experience inferior, socially and academically, to the in-person experience for which plaintiff and the class paid; but the university system’s ersatz online courses now offered to students are inferior to online courses that were conceived as such in the first instance.”last_img read more

New Full Time Paramedic Unit Implemented in Thurston County

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0Medic Six now available 24 hours a dayThurston County’s Medic 6 unit is now a fulltime response unit.  Medic 6 serves the northeast Thurston County-Hawks Prairie area and is one of the paramedic advanced life support (ALS) response/transport units. Medic 6 is located on the Steilacoom Road and is operated by Lacey Fire District #3. “Medic 6 is the most recent upgrade to the county-wide Medic One ALS response service and is a welcome addition to the county-wide EMS system.” says Sandra Romero, Chair of the Board of Thurston County Commissioners.Medic 6 was previously staffed by five paramedics operating on a 12 hour basis but County Commissioners authorized a gradual phase-in to enhance paramedic response times. “Since July of 2012, we have added a new paramedic and increased service every six months for a total of three added medics. Eight paramedics now provide full staffing of the unit 24 hours per day/seven days a week,” said Steve Brooks, Chief of Lacey Fire District 3. The unit not only provides service to the NE county area but provides backup to the entire county wide paramedic system of seven total vehicles. This year, Medic 6 has responded to 660 9-1-1 calls for help county-wide from Black Lake to Bald Hills. “We anticipate Medic 6 handling between 1,700 and 1,800 calls this year with some overall improvement in response time,” said Steve Romines, Director of Thurston County Emergency Services/Medic One.Medic One’s seven county wide paramedic advanced life support response/transport vehicles responded to 9,331 of the 26,012 EMS calls to 9-1-1 last year. The county wide average paramedic response time was 7.2 minutes and just under 6 minutes in cities of Olympia, Lacey Tumwater.last_img read more

A Net-Zero-Energy Home in Rural Tennessee

first_imgOn my thousand-mile quality assurance road trip last week, I visited a house that was designed to produce more energy than it uses, making it a net zero energy home. You can take any house all the way to net zero just by giving it enough on-site power production (photovoltaics, wind, hydropower…), but that’s not the most effective way to achieve the goal of net zero energy use. First, you want to make the house really efficient, and that’s what these folks did. Super efficient and powered with renewable energyThey did a great job with the rest of the energy efficiency details, too. It’s becoming the norm these days, but I’ll mention anyway that they used double pane, low-e windows. The ceiling fans, lights, and appliances all were super efficient as well. They also installed a ground-source heat pump with all ducts in the conditioned attic. That means there was no duct leakage to the outside. Of course, they installed a solar hot water system, too; you can see the solar thermal collector on the roof, to the right of the PV modules, in one of the photos.Once they made the house as efficient as possible, the amount of on-site power production they needed to get to net zero was smaller. The photovoltaic system on the south-facing roof ended up at about 8 kilowatts, which actually should put them below net zero. That means that the power company will be sending them money each year.So, how do you build a net zero energy home? The first thing to do is to have someone like Jack Cowan on your team. Jack is a HERS rater in the Memphis, Tennessee area, and he started his rating company, Cowanhouse, over a decade ago. The house described in this article is going to be his nephew’s home, and Jack has helped with the design and construction, as well as being the rater on the project. He’s done a number of other renewable energy projects, too, including another net zero house whose owners have never paid a utility bill. Jack did all the modeling and specifications for the PV system here.Meeting great people doing amazing work is one of the reasons I love what I do so much. As tight as a Passive HouseIf you’re a home energy pro, the photo of the duct leakage test fan hooked up to the Blower Door frame may look a little odd to you (unless you work on Passive House or similar super-efficient projects). That’s my setup when I was testing the house for air leakage. Yes, I really was running a Blower Door test with a Duct Blaster fan. Even better, I was running the fan with the smallest ring (Ring 3). Because the house was so tight, I needed to use equipment that would give me better resolution than the larger Blower Door fan.This house was really, really tight. The air leakage was 200 cfm50, which translated to about 0.5 ACH50. For reference, the Georgia energy code requires all new homes to test at 7 ACH50 or less. The Passive House standard for air leakage is 0.6 ACH50. Any house that tight needs mechanical ventilation, of course, and they installed a combined ERV and HEPA filter system made by Broan.Wondering how they got the house that tight? They took a number of measures, all of them designed to eliminate the common sources of air leakage:Simple design – only 4 corners and a single gable roofSlab foundationInsulating Concrete Form (ICF) wallsSpray foam insulation on the rooflinelast_img read more
