Neighbors said at least five civilians were hit by mortar fire in Goma during a second day of heavy fighting between government forces and M23 rebels to the north of the town. The violence marked the first reports of civilians being wounded inside the city since late May, and prompted the United Nations peacekeeping mission to issue a statement saying it would take the ‘necessary steps to protect civilians.’ Photo: Joseph Kay, Associated Press[Episcopal News Service] Several missiles exploded late afternoon on Aug. 22 in central Goma causing significant damage to St. Paul’s Anglican Church and destroying three classrooms in the adjacent school.Claudaline Mikanirwa, the wife of the Rev. Desiré Mukanirwa, Anglican priest in Goma, said in an e-mail to church partners that “one displaced child died on [the] spot … In other places the bombs killed some people. Another bomb reached near our home … and touched a neighboring home but no one was injured. By the time Desiré and the children and other displaced people were at our home, I was still downtown in my shop. But all of us are fine.”Mukanirwa said it would be difficult for people to worship in the church in its current state.Numerous shells landed in residential areas of Goma on Aug. 22, killing at least four people and wounding 15, all of them civilians, according to an Aug. 24 UN News Centre report.In an e-mail to ENS, Claudaline simply wrote: “Your prayers are needed.”Another wave of bombs hit the city on Aug. 24 and the Associated Press reported Aug. 26 that Congolese soldiers and rebel forces suffered heavy casualties as they fought for a fifth day outside Goma.For more than 15 years, the mineral-rich area of eastern Congo has been mired by violence, with the area around Goma the scene of intense fighting between the Congolese Army and the M23 rebel group. The rebels briefly occupied Goma in November 2012, according to the New York Times.In recent weeks the fighting resumed, displacing more than 100,000 people and exacerbating the region’s ongoing humanitarian crisis, which includes 2.6 million internally displaced people (IDPs) and 6.4 million in need of food and emergency aid, the UN News Centre said.Located in Central Africa, the DRC is the second largest country on the continent, roughly the size of Europe, with a population of 75 million. From 1998 to 2003, nine African nations and 20 armed groups fought the Second Congo War, with the war and disease and starvation in its aftermath killing 5.4 million people. Millions of others were internally displaced and some sought asylum in neighboring countries.Mukanirwa and his wife Claudaline provide a safe haven for victims of gender-based violence in the Anglican Diocese of Bukavu to work through their trauma and carve out a new life.Claudaline also heads a nongovernmental organization that offers trauma counseling, combats adult illiteracy, trains women in professional and domestic skills, and feeds and cares for a growing population of malnourished orphans made parentless through rebel violence or disease or abandoned as rape victims.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, during a July 2011 visit to Goma, shared lunch with the Mukanirwas at their home and was introduced to their ministries.The Anglican presence in Congo was established by Ugandan evangelist Apolo Kivebulaya in 1896. Today, the province includes about half a million Anglicans under the leadership of Archbishop Henri Isingoma, primate since 2009.

Casa Hilo is a prototype of rural housing suitable for a warm climate. Based on modules, the house takes shape assembled by the means of individual boxes that can be multiplied and freely configured according to the site, budget, or specific needs of each family. The modular system allows a wide variety of horizontal and vertical configurations, thus also offering flexibility regarding family growth over time.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!First FloorSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroUnlike a typical house where all rooms are located under one roof, here each space has its own roof, door, and covered terrace. Freely connected to each other, the interconnection of boxes generates a house that is interwoven with the landscape, where each room is accessed from the garden, instead of the typical access through a closed corridor. The open spaces between the different rooms form landscaped courtyards and niches that function as vital elements of the house. The garden of this house is as important for the activities of daily life, as the rooms themselves.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThis adaptable housing scheme arises from the analysis of current traditions and living conditions of the local inhabitants of the countryside in Mexico, and these are translated in a contemporary way. The interior and exterior areas form the house together. Through its rooms that extend into terraces and into the garden, the residents are offered the benefit of a refreshing microclimate through the local vegetation, even in conditions of high temperatures.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroA series of fixed outdoor furniture is incorporated into the garden as a functional part of the house, reinterpreting in a contemporary language traditional elements of the Mexican rural house. A water basin, a wood stove, and a large table reinforce the local activities and traditions of its inhabitants. Terraces that face the street allow social interaction and offer the possibility of integrating commercial activities.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroThe basic configuration of Casa Hilo consists of two rooms, a kitchen, and a bathroom, in addition to the exterior equipment: a basin, a stove, and a table with benches. The windows and doors are foldable bamboo blinds that allow both the constant and modular natural air circulation, and the control of levels of privacy for the spaces. At the same time, they function as shadow-generating pergolas outside when in their open position.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroStructures based on concrete frames offer protection for seismic movements. These structural frames are filled with hand made adobe blocks produced by locals. These adobe walls work as a thermal insulator by absorbing excess moisture and cooling the inside air during the day through its thermal mass, making Casa Hilo an example of sustainable rural architecture.Save this picture!© Jaime NavarroSave this picture!SectionsSave this picture!© Jaime NavarroProject gallerySee allShow lessPelli Clarke Pelli Design 3 Towers for the Regeneration of Central TokyoArchitecture NewsL.A.

Local Government Association and PFRA in national agreement over face-to-face standards

first_imgThe PFRA commits to tailor each site agreement to “best suit the needs of a local area and its residents”. What the agreements will coverThe national agreement sets out the factors that councils can expect to be covered in their agreements:• The location of fundraisers• The numbers of people and charities present• Clear identification of team leaders to the council and public• The hours and days when fundraising can take place• Exclusion dates for specific events• Monitoring of activity by the PFRA and council to maximise resource• Action and sanctions to be taken if specific charities breach terms in the voluntary agreement.Councillor Mehboob Khan, the leader of Kirklees Council and chair of the LGA’s Safer and Stronger Communities Board, said: “Councils tell us that their residents and businesses can feel pressured by the aggressive behaviour of some face-to-face fundraisers, and that they have no powers to stop this from deterring visitors and impacting on local business activity. Fortunately, there is a solution at hand and I am delighted to say that the LGA has worked with the PFRA to strengthen and make more transparent the voluntary agreements that all charities collecting this way are signed up to, while we wait for central government to reform the licensing regime”.PFRA Chair Paul Stallard added: “Street fundraising is a vital and cost-effective form of fundraising for those charities that rely on it. But we cannot deny that it is controversial. The PFRA has been responding to these challenges for the past 10 years by developing co-regulatory partnership with councils and we already have more than 50 such agreements. Our day-today, bread and butter work is making sure fundraisers adhere to these agreements”.As part of the new working arrangements, the LGA has accepted a place on the PFRA’s board.Peter Lewis, Institute of Fundraising Chief Executive, welcomed the agreement, saying: “The new PFRA/LGA Memorandum of Understanding is a welcome initiative that embeds compliance with the IoF’s Code of Fundraising Practice in these important agreements between the PFRA and local authorities.”www.pfra.org.uk Howard Lake | 28 November 2012 | News  29 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

The agreement follows a survey by the LGA which showed that three quarters of councils were concerned about the “aggressive behaviour” of some face-to-face fundraisers to their residents and on their streets. Voluntary site management‘Making the Pledge’ contains LGA’s recommendation of voluntary site management agreements with councils to give them “more control over face-to-face fundraising”. The agreements should combine the PFRA’s expertise in controlling fundraising and councils’ knowledge of local conditions. They are designed to offer a “wholly transparent and accountable way” to address local concerns about fundraising. Advertisementlast_img read more

Death Tax Action Top Priority for NCBA

first_img Previous articleRFA Backs Administration Position on RFSNext articleE-15 Gaining Popularity But Still Facing Hurdles Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Death Tax Action Top Priority for NCBA SHARE Death Tax Action Top Priority for NCBA Facebook Twitter National Cattlemen’s Beef Association Director of Legislative Affairs Kent Bacus (back-us) said the estate tax is the number one priority for NCBA. Speaking to attendees of the 2012 Cattle Industry Summer Conference – Bacus explained that the issue rises to the top because of the burden it places on families that hope to pass their business on to the next generation. According to Bacus – the estate tax is a prime example of bad tax policy. He says Congress should repeal it. In order to sustain family businesses – Bacus said the future must contain a level of certainty. The next generation – he said – can’t possibly afford to take over the family business if they are taxed to death.For cattlemen seeking permanent relief from the estate tax – Bacus had some good news. Texas Representative Kevin Brady has 218 cosponsors on his Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act. The legislation would essentially provide full and permanent relief from the tax. Companion legislation has been introduced by South Dakota’s John Thune in the Senate. The measure has 37 co-sponsors.But Bacus shared some bad news too. He said the Senate recently took action on a tax package that did not address the estate tax. Instead – the package would leave small business owners and ranchers vulnerable to a reversion to pre-2001 levels of a 55-percent tax on estates worth one-million dollars or more. Bacus said most farmers and ranchers would reach the one-million dollar threshold on land values alone. According to Bacus – we must find permanent estate tax relief or risk taking land out of production agriculture. He says that would threaten our ability to provide food for consumers at home and abroad.center_img Source: NAFB News service Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 27, 2012 last_img read more

Are UK bosses really this bad?

Previous Article Next Article UKworkers don’t need to watch the cult comedy series The Office to see managementincompetence – they can see it at work, claims Secretary of State for Trade andIndustry Patricia Hewitt.Hewittsaid there are too many UK managers like David Brent – the incompetent,double-speaking, boss from hell, played by Ricky Gervais.Brentmade viewers cringe as he confused, upset and danced with his demotivated staffwhile trying to implement his unique management style.”Toomany people at work have had experience of bosses a bit like David Brent. Theyare actually in the minority, but we need fewer of them,” Hewitt told theGMTV Sunday programme.Shesaid the productivity gap between the UK and its global competitors is largelydue to poor managers.TheInstitute of Directors reacted angrily to Hewitt’s claims, with business policyadviser Richard Wilson saying the characterisation was out of date. Hesaid British managers are among the best in the world and have improvedimmeasurably since the early 1980s.JohnPhilpott, chief economist at the CIPD, said there is a management problem andthat senior managers are just as culpable as those on the shopfloor.”DavidBrent is an overused clich‚, but there are a lot of managers that use therhetoric of HR, but fail to put it into action.

Former Sapir employee accuses company of retaliation

first_imgMessage* Full Name* Alex Sapir (Getty)A former employee of the Sapir Organization claims her old boss retaliated against her after she failed to find a “smoking gun” implicating one of Alex Sapir’s enemies.Patricia Lemanski, who worked as a paralegal at the real estate firm for nearly 10 years, alleges that the Sapir Organization directed her to dig up dirt on her former supervisor at the company: ex-general counsel Omer Rosen, whom Sapir had been feuding with.The firm gave Lemanski access to company files to find proof of misconduct, she claims in a lawsuit filed in New York State Supreme Court last week. But after the probe failed to turn up anything, Lemanski was fired and the Sapir Org. filed a federal lawsuit accusing her of stealing files that competitors could use to undercut the company’s business.In her lawsuit, Leamanski claims that Sapir’s legal action was merely cover for firing her, and meant as a chilling message to the company’s rivals.Sapir’s attorney, Terrence Oved of Oved & Oved, said in a statement to The Real Deal that the federal court had already rejected Lemanski’s claims of retaliation.“This suit is a shameless attempt to reinvent those allegations and forum shop them to a different court,” he added. “We are confident that this second bite at the apple will also be rejected.”The company “properly terminated this employee for misconduct,” he said.After Rosen was fired, Sapir replaced him as general counsel with Lonica Smith, who is about 10 years younger than Lemanski.Lemanski claims in her lawsuit that Smith “viewed Lemanski as a threat given her status as an older woman with extensive experience with Sapir,” and reassigned the company veteran to lower-level tasks. Lemanski alleged that Smith — who is named as a co-defendant in the suit alongside the company — replaced her with someone 20 years younger.Lemanski also alleges she was being discriminated against based on her age and religion. (Lemanski is non-Jewish, while the Sapir family is Jewish.)Sapir received a temporary restraining order it had sought and withdrew its federal lawsuit shortly after filing, but Lemanski claims the damage was already done: She says she was turned down by two other job prospects.“The Federal Action succeeded in its true objective: wrongfully obtaining Lemanski’s personal information, forcing Lemanski out of [the company] without compensation and sending a clear message to Sapir’s rivals . . . that Sapir would resort to any means necessary to cause them harm,” Lemanski’s attorneys wrote in the complaint.She is suing for unspecified damages.Contact Rich Bockmann Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Share via Shortlink TagsCommercial Real EstateReal Estate Lawsuitssapir organization Email Address*last_img read more
