Video: Primates Meeting press conference

first_img January 17, 2016 at 1:16 pm I am amazed at the Archbishop’s expressions of regret for the pain and suffering that the church has inflicted on homosexual persons on the one hand while at the same time defending, if not actually endorsing, the Communion’s decision to render the Episcopal Church disenfranchised because they have authorized the blessing of same sex marriage. The greatest of ironies, of course, is that this action taken by the Communion continues to cause pain and suffering as it sends the message to persons of LGBT orientation that they are somehow outside the bounds of God’s love, caring and status as beloved children of God such that the church would deny the sacramental nature of the loving relationships they choose relative to whom they desire to share their life with via Holy Matrimony. The disconnect is astounding.

Lord have mercy.” February 5, 2016 at 1:21 pm In my simplicity and shallowness of faith, I believe no individual or Church can resolve if a man or a woman or anything else were within or outside the perimeters of God’s love, only God Himself can do so thru His words in the Bible. If the World wide Church has re-affirmed what the Scriptures have said, why should we condemn Her? If anybody takes an exception to God’s teachings, then they should request Him to exempt them from His tenets or otherwise pour your anger on Him not our prelates, please. In other words, do not shoot the messenger, shoot the one who sent him or her. Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Who masterminded journalist Khim Sambo’s murder ?

first_imgNews October 15, 2008 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Who masterminded journalist Khim Sambo’s murder ? Google experiments drop Australian media from search results to go further RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders today urged Prime Minister Hun Sen to quickly create an independent commission of enquiry into the July murder of opposition journalist Khim Sambo following several reports that national police chief Hok Lundy could have been involved, and that the Cambodian police are covering up the crime.”An investigation is already under way, but the reports implicating the Cambodian police chief are so serious that the government should lose no time in putting independent experts in charge,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Doubt will persist about the government’s desire to solve this murder until all the facts have been brought to light. We also urge the police chief to respond to these allegations.”The press freedom organisation added: “We also call on the US authorities to quickly publish the findings of the FBI agents who spent more than two weeks working with the Cambodian investigators on this case.”Several journalists and human rights activists have obtained credible information from people close to Khim Sambo that the police chief, Hok Lundy, was involved in the murder of Khim Sambo who wrote for Moneakseka Khmer (“Khmer Conscience”), an opposition Khmer-language daily, and his 21-year-old son in Phnom Penh on 11 July. They were murdered two weeks before general elections.People close to the journalist who may have information about the murder have said that they are too afraid to speak to the investigators because they suspect police are involved.The Hong Kong-based South China Morning Post ran a lengthy story on Khim Sambo’s murder at the start of the month. It quoted an independent investigator who said the perpetrators, who were probably contract killers, made no attempt to cover their faces, suggesting they were confident they would be protected by the people who had hired them.A human rights activist found that the witnesses of the murder have been intimidated and refuse to say what they saw. The Phnom Penh police chief meanwhile issued a statement saying “an FBI official agrees on the fact that the murders were an act of revenge against the journalist’s son.”The FBI agents working on the case left Cambodia a few days after the South China Morning Post ran its story. A Phnom Penh-based news media reported that the FIB had finished their investigation. But it is disturbing that the FBI has ended its participation in the investigation now although US officials originally said the agents would stay until the case was solved.Khim Sambo often wrote about corruption and nepotism in the ruling Cambodia People’s Party. But one story in particular, which he wrote under the pseudonym of Srey Ka, has caught the attention of journalists and human rights activists who have studied in the case. Less than two weeks before his murder, Khim Sambo wrote a detailed report about a “senior police official” who was not named but was easily identifiable to loyal readers of the newspaper.Described as “one of the country’s most dangerous men,” this police officer is alleged to have gone to a casino in Bavat, near the Vietnamese border, on 25 June, lost all his money, used threats to obtain credit from the casino and arrested staff when they refused to lend him more, according to Khim Sambo’s report. Hok Lundy was a governor of the Svay Rieng province before he was named national police chief in 1994. Hok Lundy has been a Hun Sen associate since 1979 and one of his daughters is married to the prime minister’s son. Hok Lundy “represents the absolute worst that Cambodia has to offer,” Human Rights Watch said about him last year. In 2006, a former Phnom Penh police chief has accused him of being involved in at least 70 extrajudicial executions.

“Section 97 CrPC Has Become Dead Letter”: Supreme Court Urges Habeas Corpus Petitioner To Take Recourse To S. 97 In Matter Of Illegal Detention Of Wife By Father

first_imgTop Stories”Section 97 CrPC Has Become Dead Letter”: Supreme Court Urges Habeas Corpus Petitioner To Take Recourse To S. 97 In Matter Of Illegal Detention Of Wife By Father Mehal Jain19 May 2021 9:17 PMShare This – xThe Supreme Court on Tuesday urged a petitioner, having filed a habeas corpus plea under Article 32 against the illegal detention of his wife by her father, to take recourse to section 97, Cr. P. C. (Search for persons wrongfully confined).”Section 97, Cr. P. C. has become a dead-letter because of these shortcuts”, said Justice Dinesh Maheshwari. It may be noted that the said section 97 provides that if any District Magistrate, Sub-divisional Magistrate or Magistrate of the first class has reason to believe that any person is confined under such circumstances that the confinement amounts to an offence, he may issue a search-warrant, and the person to whom such warrant is directed may search for the person so confined; and such search shall be made in accordance therewith, and the person, if found, shall be immediately taken before a Magistrate, who shall make such order as in the circumstances of the case seems proper.Advertisement The vacation bench of Justices Maheshwari and Aniruddha Bose was hearing a habeas corpus petition by a husband alleging illegal detention of his wife by her father. The facts of the case were that the petitioner, aged 28 years, had solemnised marriage with the corpus, aged 20 years, in April this year. It was contended that after the family members of the corpus received information of the wedding, they had mercilessly beaten her and detained her in a room at their residence to prevent her from cohabiting with the petitioner at their matrimonial home. The petitioner had attempted to amicably resolve the issue with his wife’s family members but the respondent-father and his other family members issued life threats to the petitioner. Advertisement The petitioner further averred that he had, subsequently, filed a complaint with the jurisdictional SHO but no action was taken by the police authorities. Thereafter, the petitioner had even made an online application before the Chief Minister of the state of UP on the CM’s ‘Jan Sunwai Portal’. The petitioner urged that left with no other option, he filed the writ petition under Article 32 seeking directions to the respondent-authorities to produce before the Court his wife, who is illegally detained by the father at his residence. The petitioner advanced that both he and the corpus are majors and have solemnised the marriage without any pressure and out of free will, after knowing each other for over 2 years.Advertisement Advertisement At the outset, Justice Maheshwari enquired from the advocate for the petitioner, “You have come under 32. Why is the High Court not competent to deal with this matter?”.The advocate for the petitioner replied, “In view of the prevailing Covid situation in the state, the Allahabad High Court is giving hearing dates for after 3-4 months…the trial courts are also mostly not functioning…””So why can you not take recourse to section 97, Cr. P. C.? 97 has nothing to do with courts!”, said Justice Maheshwari.Advertisement Advertisement Advertisement The bench then passed over the matter to allow time to the advocate to peruse the said provision of the Cr. P. C.When the matter was called out again, the advocate submitted that he has read section 97. He also pointed out that the petitioner has approached the SHO of the jurisdictional police station regarding the illegal detention and even filed an application before the state CM on his online portal.”We have seen all that- the complaint to the CM, to the SHO…And 32 is a ‘no’…Why can you not go under 97?”, suggested Justice Maheshwari.”Then I seek liberty to withdraw this petition to go under 97″, advanced the advocate.”Good! 97 has become a dead-letter in the Code because of these short-cuts”, remarked Justice Maheshwari.The bench then proceeded to dictate its order- “The petition is dismissed as withdrawn with liberty to the petitioner to take appropriate recourse as per law”TagsSupreme Court Criminal Procedure Code (Cr.P.C) Article 32 Justice Aniruddha Bose Justice Dinesh Maheshwari Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Sofa, not so good! MPs urge new laws to regulate Airbnb rental properties

first_imgA parliamentary investigation into the sharing economy has claimed that the popularity of Airbnb is helping drive an increasingly number of private landlords to exit the private rental sector, leading to housing shortages, forcing up property prices and putting renters at risk.It also found that PwC believes half of all revenue for residential landlords could soon come from sharing platforms, increasing from £3 billion a year now to £30 billion by 2025.The report by the UK House of Commons All-Party Parliamentary Group for Leisure, Tourism and the Hospitality Industry suggests that landlords are both attracted by the potential higher returns of sharing platforms, and the laxer safety standards than compared to the private rental sector.The investigation’s report says too many Airbnb properties do not conform to Health and Safety standards such as having a gas safety certificate, and that Airbnb allows landlords to rent out properties even if they admit their properties don’t comply to safety standards.Accreditation schemeTo combat these problems, the MPs recommend that Airbnb be forced to ensure hosts are aware of their responsibilities, and that an accreditation scheme is rolled out across the industry.The report also recommends that “sharing economy companies develop and implement procedures that ensure that hosts have, as a minimum, undertaken a fire safety assessment, a health and safety assessment and, where relevant, have Gas Safe certification.“Accommodation providers should not be allowed to register properties without proof of these assessments.”Any new rules would cover not just Airbnb but its competitors too including One Fine Stay, HomeAway and Under the Doormat.Read more about Airbnb.Airbnb statementThe company’s spokesperson says the company has launched a collaboration with the National Fire Chiefs Council to promote and educated hosts across the UK about fire safety. This includes a guide that will be sent to 100,000 hosts. The guide gives advice on fitting fire and smoke alarms, but makes no mention of gas safety testing.“At Airbnb, we’re committed to supporting safe hosting and are pleased to have teamed up with the UK’s leading experts to develop guidance for our community and lead our industry on this important issue,” says Natasha Mytton Mills, Public Policy Manager at Airbnb UK (pictured, left).“Whether it’s taking a minute to test your smoke alarms regularly, or having an escape plan for guests handy, we’re encouraging all of our hosts to follow a few simple steps to make their home even safer.” House of Commons MP’s airbnb All-Party Parliamentary Group for Leisure Tourism and the Hospitality Industry July 30, 2018Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

Chinese Business Leaders Visit NWC

first_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: NWC View post tag: Visit View post tag: Naval Forty Chinese business leaders enrolled in Babson College’s Executive Education (China) Program visited the U.S. Naval War College (NWC), July 26, to learn about military perspectives of leadership and innovation and discuss how to apply that knowledge to their own businesses.NWC’s academic relationship with the nearby Massachusetts’ business school made the international outreach opportunity possible. The students toured the campus and listened intently to NWC faculty presentations in leadership and innovation, warfare analysis and research, operational and strategic leadership, national security affairs, and strategy and policy. “The Naval War College demonstrates how the military develops through transformation, innovation and leadership in times of uncertainty. There are a lot of skills that national security professionals and business professionals have in common in rapidly evolving environments,” explained professor Peter Dutton, NWC’s director, China Maritime Studies Institute.According to John Chen, Babson College’s vice president, Asia Pacific Babson Global, these students will one day transition to higher executive levels in their respective industries. “The Babson Executive Education Program helps to train professionals in entrepreneurial education and helps people transition from functional managers to general managers,” said Chen. “For these students who are transforming in their careers to executive positions within their companies, coming to the Naval War College allows them to observe leadership lessons from the military, which trains officers to manage people as they manage the unpredictable.”Elaine Eisenman, dean of Babson College’s Executive Education, said the NWC visit provides students a unique perspective as military leaders often times make tough decisions that also occur in the business world.“These executives will make decisions when they have limited knowledge to forecast what would occur,” said Eisenman. “Coming here to NWC, to discuss making such forecasts from the military perspective, was a logical place. There are common characteristics shared by military officers and entrepreneurs, including the concepts of making decisions by taking risks and having a common strategy in execution.”Students found the NWC visit valuable to their view of international business, especially since the majority of Chinese produced goods travel overseas on ships to America.“In the future, uncertainty in business will increase. One may not know the advantages or disadvantages or even the languages spoken of the competing business,” said Xuchang Guo, chairman of a mining company. “Like the military, entrepreneurs are making decisions in uncertain environments, and I was interested to see how military leaders make the correct decisions when faced with these challenges.”Jingsong (Jason) Chen, founder and chief executive officer, World Union Properties, saw similarities between business and the military.“Commerce and business are like war,” said Chen. “I can easily see the connection between business and the military especially with regard to honor and teamwork. I work in a real estate company and we are human resource-based and learning how to establish the efficiency of teamwork. Honor for the team is critical.”With two NWC missions being education and development of leaders and strengthening global maritime partnerships, academic support with other colleges like nearby Babson College is valuable.“International friendship and cooperation have long been critical components to successfully meeting the charge,” said Dutton.

Sunk WWI Royal Navy cruiser examined off Orkney Isles

first_img Sunk WWI Royal Navy cruiser examined off Orkney Isles A secret mission to persuade Tsar Nicholas II of Russia to stay in the First World War failed when Britain’s Secretary of State for War Lord Kitchener and over 700 sailors died in the sinking of the warship HMS Hampshire after it hit a mine off the Orkney Isles.100 years later a Saab Seaeye Falcon underwater robotic system operated by Roving Eye Enterprises examined the wreck in a collaborative project that includes the University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute, with licensed permission from the Ministry of Defence.The survey confirmed previous findings that the ship capsized and sank following an explosion between the bow and the bridge, and lies upturned on the seabed in approximately 60m of water. The hull is also damaged in places throughout the length of the vessel, exposing parts of the interior.Guns from the ship’s secondary armament were identified at a distance of up to 30m from the main body of the wreck. The location of these breech-loading 6-inch MK VII guns may be related to the sinking event or salvage activity.A breech loading 6-inch MK VII gun protruding from its casemate, part of the Hampshire’s secondary armament, with a possible three-pounder gun to the left.

Warburtons graduates go back to the olden days

first_imgGraduates working for Warburtons have explored how bread was baked before the invention of modern ovens at Openfield’s Sacrewell Mill, Peterborough.The baking graduates took a day out to see the traditional 18th-Century watermill, owned by the William Scott Abbott Trust and used to educate people about the role of agriculture in food production.Each year about 110,000 people visit the mill to see flour milled and bread baked in a traditional wood-fired bread oven. Bob Beard, cereal development director for Warburtons, believed the visit was a great opportunity for graduates to see how bread production has evolved.“The basic principles of bread production remain much the same as they were two centuries ago, but technology in production and our understanding of how protein structures can be influenced to improve baking performance have led to a transformation in modern baking techniques,” he said.“Being able to contrast the new with the old helps to demonstrate how sophisticated modern methods have become.”Openfield is Britain’s largest farmer-owned grain co-operative and a long-time supplier to Warburtons.Earlier this month, Warburtons created a dinosaur exhibit made out of crumpets to celebrate the launch of McFly band member Tom Fletcher’s new book.last_img read more
