Foto de Natasha Deane.[Episcopal News Service] La Diócesis Episcopal de Tennessee encabeza los esfuerzos para indagar y conmemorar a las víctimas de linchamientos en Nashville y en todo el estado, al igual que una prominente comisión que lleva a cabo una labor de reconciliación racial semejante en Atlanta, Georgia.La diócesis de Tennessee, que abarca el tercio geográfico central del estado, creó su Equipo de Trabajo para el Antirracismo el año pasado, y uno de sus primeros proyectos ha sido arrojar nueva luz sobre la violencia racial profundamente sepultada en el pasado de Nashville. Este empeño inicial de recordar a víctimas de linchamiento culminó el 7 de junio en un oficio eucarístico y una letanía conmemorativa por tres víctimas reconocidas y otras cuyas identidades se perdieron para la historia.El equipo de trabajo se propone expandir su labor desde el condado de Davidson al resto de la diócesis. Más de 200 linchamientos tuvieron lugar dentro de las actuales fronteras de la diócesis, entre ellos unos 162 linchamientos en condados que tenían al menos una congregación episcopal, dijo Natasha Deane, copresidente del equipo de trabajo, en una entrevista con Episcopal News Service. El enfoque inicial es local, aunque la Diócesis de Tennessee Occidental y la Diócesis de Tennessee Oriental también están invitadas a participar en este esfuerzo.“Contar estas historias desempeña un papel tanto en la educación como en el restañamiento de las heridas raciales, porque no relatar un hecho histórico es, en gran medida, como una enfermedad que no se diagnostica”, dijo Deane, investigadora jubilada del Centro Médico de Universidad de Vanderbilt. La herida racial “sólo logra empeorarse”.La muerte a tiros de un negro desarmado por un agente de policía en Ferguson, Misurí, y otras muertes semejantes a manos de la policía fueron un catalizador directo para la creación del equipo de trabajo, dijo Bill Gittens, el otro copresidente.“Nos preocupaba que … las muertes a tiros fuesen una continuación del trauma que la población negra en general, y los hombres negros en particular, habían experimentado, y era importante para nosotros empezar por decir que ya bastaba y que debíamos no sólo enfrentarnos con el presente, sino también con el pasado”, explicó Gittens, administrador jubilado de la Universidad de Tennessee.La diócesis aprobó una resolución en 2015 que demandaba la creación de un equipo de trabajo sobre el racismo, el cual se creó al año siguiente, siendo sus miembros una mezcla de clérigos y laicos. Gittens dijo que el grupo vio su misión no como centrada en la política, sino en la Iglesia, invocando el llamado del Libro de Oración Común y del pacto bautismal a luchar por la justicia y respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano.Ese llamado ha tenido un alcance denominacional en las muchas resoluciones de la Convención General a lo largo de los años que se han centrado en la reconciliación racial. La Iglesia Episcopal afirma que el racismo es un pecado que debe ser combatido —por los feligreses y por la institución misma.Por ejemplo, una resolución aprobada en la Convención General de 1991 comprometió a la Iglesia a “abordar el racismo institucional dentro de nuestra Iglesia y en la sociedad”, y una resolución de 2000 deploraba “el silencio histórico y la complicidad de nuestra Iglesia con el pecado del racismo”.La Iglesia amplificó su llamado a la reconciliación racial este año al publicar Convertirse en la Amada Comunidad [Becoming Beloved Community ] una guía para que los episcopales trabajen en pro de la armonía racial.“Ustedes se enfrentan a una senda por la que nosotros, como la rama episcopal del Movimiento de Jesús, podemos encarnar más plena y devotamente el camino amoroso, liberador y vivificador de Jesús en nuestras relaciones los unos con los otros”, dijo el obispo primado Michael Curry en un comunicado de prensa del mes de mayo en que daba a conocer la guía.La labor de la comisión de antirracismo de la Diócesis de Atlanta con frecuencia se cita cuando se debaten tales empeños en el ámbito denominacional. Esa comisión también se llamó Amada Comunidad, y su éxito en elaborar el adiestramiento antirracista que mandaba la Iglesia ha servido de modelo a otras diócesis.En octubre, la Amada Comunidad de Atlanta: Comisión para el Desmantelamiento del Racismo inició una serie de tres años de peregrinaciones a sitios de linchamientos en Georgia, comenzando con un viaje a Macon. Uno de los miembros del Equipo de Trabajo para el Antirracismo asistió a la peregrinación de Macon y llevó de regreso a Nashville la idea de honrar a las víctimas de linchamiento.Desde entonces, el equipo de trabajo de la Diócesis de Tennessee ha estado atareada. Además de investigar los linchamientos en la historia del Condado de Davidson, celebró una ceremonia en febrero para honrar a Absalom Jones y una marcha en abril para conmemorar un momento esencial de la historia de Nashville, el atentado dinamitero de 1960 en la casa del líder de los derechos civiles Z. Alexander Looby.El equipo de trabajo se asoció también con la Conferencia de Estudiosos Cristianos de la Universidad de Lipscomb al objeto de organizar un servicio para honrar a las víctimas de linchamientos.Los linchamientos se han descrito como una especie de terrorismo racial, que apelaba al miedo para impedir que los negros, así como los simpatizantes blancos, desafiaran la autoridad de los blancos. Las turbas de linchamiento tuvieron mayor preponderancia en el sur a fines del siglo XIX y en la primera mitad del siglo XX, y estos brutales asesinatos con frecuencia fueron facilitados por instituciones locales, incluidos departamentos de policía e iglesias cristianas.“Decimos en verdad que tenemos las manos manchadas de sangre [de las víctimas] y venimos ante ustedes pidiendo perdón”, dijo la Rda. Nontombi Naomi Tutu en su sermón del oficio del 7 de junio, según reportó el Nashville Tennessean. Tutu, que ha residido en Nashville por bastante tiempo, nació en Sudáfrica y es hija del arzobispo Desmond Tuto. “Recordemos que al recobrar sus historias, estamos recobrando nuestra propia humanidad”.Aproximadamente 150 personas asistieron al oficio en la Universidad de Fisk, dijeron Deane y Gittens a ENS. Después, marcharon en procesión hasta la iglesia episcopal de San Anselmo [St. Anselm’s Episcopal Church] para dedicar una tarja conmemorativa donada por la Diócesis de Tennessee. “En memoria de nuestros martirizados hermanos y de otros desconocidos linchados en el Condado de Davidson, Tennessee”, dice la tarja encima de los nombres de las tres víctimas identificadas: los hermanos Henry y Ephraim Grizzard, y Samuel Smith.Catherine Meeks, presidente de la Comisión de la Amada Comunidad en Atlanta, asistió al oficio en Nashville y encomió la labor del equipo de trabajo [para el antirracismo] de la Diócesis de Tennessee.“Me quedé ciertamente muy complacida, y muy honrada de que nuestra labor haya sido una inspiración para ellos”, dijo Meeks a ENS.Desde entonces, Deane y Gittens dijeron que se habían dirigido a ellos personas interesadas en llevar a cabo indagaciones sobre otras víctimas de linchamientos. Una de ellas fue el pariente de una víctima, otra un ministro bautista. El equipo de trabajo episcopal se ha puesto en contacto con una congregación episcopal para brindarle ayuda.El equipo de trabajo espera captar a más congregaciones para que asuman la causa localmente y lleven a cabo indagaciones semejantes a las emprendidas en Nashville.“Este es un intento de empezar un diálogo sostenido con la esperanza de concientizar”, dijo Gittens.– David Paulsen es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Historian honors C.L.R. James

first_imgMychal Odom holding Lenin’s ‘What Is to Be Done?’San Diego, Calif. — Professor Mychal Odom gave a historical talk marking the 80th anniversary of the publishing of C.L.R. (Cyril Lionel Robert) James’ book, “The Black Jacobins,” at the Central Library in downtown San Diego on Oct.1. “The Black Jacobins,” printed by the British publishing house Seckel Warburg in 1938, is a classic account of the Haitian rebellion of 1791-1803, the only successful slave revolt in modern world history.After welcoming everyone, Marc Chery, former manager of the Malcolm X Library and current supervisor of the Literature, Language and History section of the Central Library, introduced Odom.Odom began his talk by displaying an image of C.L.R. James taken in 1972 in San Diego at a Congress of African Peoples Conference. James’ presence in San Diego underscores the international reach of his work. He was a communist who participated in and supported all forms of Black Liberation struggles not only as a scholar but in the streets.Odom began his presentation, speaking on incidents in the life of C.L.R. James that many may not know about; for example, James was a cricketer and an accomplished track and field athlete, who set a Trinidadian record in the high jump while at Queens Royal College from 1918 to 1922.Odom spoke of other works of literature by James that chronicle the Haitian Revolution and led to the first printing of “The Black Jacobins.” James produced a play on the life of Toussaint L’Ouverture starring Paul Robeson. He wrote a pamphlet, “A history of Negro Revolt,” later retitled “A History of Pan-African Revolt,” followed by his masterpiece, “The Black Jacobins.”Odom had a stack of books that he referenced as he spoke about the role of literature studies in producing C.L.R. James’ political ideology; one of the books he picked up was “What Is to Be Done” by Vladimir Lenin, the leader of the Russian Revolution, explaining that “What Is to Be Done” is also the title of a 19th century Russian novel about political and ideological struggle.Everyone listened intently as Odom gave a historical, well-researched, thorough perspective of the continuous radical resistance of the enslaved Africans in Haiti and their continued fight for freedom, which resulted in Haiti declaring independence in 1804 after defeating what was the most powerful army of the day: the Grand Army of France.Odom acknowledged all the organizations that supported this event, including Pillars of the Community, Unión del Barrio, the Friends of Malcolm X Library, Workers World Party, the Committee Against Police Brutality, and students and community members who took the time to come on a Monday evening to participate in this important discussion.Odom asked everyone to take a moment of silence for Paul Pablo Aceves, a longtime member of Unión del Barrio, who dedicated his life to the many struggles in San Diego. Pablo Aceves had joined the ancestors the previous weekend.The last 45 minutes of the meeting were open for questions and comments.Professor Odom’s research emphasis is in the history of Pan-African and Black internationalist social movements. He is currently working on a book manuscript titled “From Southern California to Southern Africa: Trans-local Black Internationalism in Los Angelesand San Diego from Civil Rights to Anti-apartheid, 1960 to 1994FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Indiana Farm Bureau Briefs Senator on Farm Bill Priorities

first_img Indiana Farm Bureau Briefs Senator on Farm Bill PrioritiesFor the past 6 months, an Indiana Farm Bureau task force has been collecting input from farmers statewide on policy priorities for the new Farm Bill. This group presented their findings to Senator Joe Donnelly, a member of the Senate Ag Committee, last week. IFB President Randy Kron said crop insurance remains their top concern, “Crop insurance takes the weather volatility out of the market and some of the risk off the farm. They said, if funding becomes an issue, this is our top priority.”Kron said the nutrition title of the bill also got a lot of discussion, “The nutrition title is about 80% of the total cost of the Farm Bill, so we decided that we had better be involved in the discussion on the nutrition title.” This is the first time IFB has included the nutrition title in their policy  platform. “The task force decided to oppose blank grants as part of the nutrition title,” Kron told Hoosier Ag Today.Donnelly said, after meeting with the farmers, he understands where Indiana stands. He will continue to travel the state taking input from other stakeholders on future farm policy, “I want to make sure that when Indiana’s voice is heard on the Farm Bill everyone will be represented.” Hearings in Washington are expected to begin later this year.The farm programs for corn and soybean producers contained in the last Farm Bill are working well for most Indiana corn and soybean producers. Both Kron and Donnelly feel little in this program needs to be changed in the new Farm Bill.However, the dairy program is not working. Participation by dairymen around the nation is very low and finding consensus in the dairy industry for a new program is difficult.  Both men agreed that more work needs to be done to try to find a new approach that will provide an adequate safety net for the dairy industry.

Impact of EMIC‐wave driven electron precipitation on the radiation belts and the atmosphere

first_imgIn recent years there has been a growing body of direct experimental evidence demonstrating electromagnetic ion cyclotron (EMIC) waves driving energetic electron precipitation (EEP) at unexpectedly low, sub‐MeV energies — as low as only a few hundred keV. EMIC wave driven scattering at these energies has important ramifications for our understanding of not only radiation belt electron dynamics, but also the importance of EMIC‐driven EEP to the chemical balance of the Earth’s atmosphere. In this study, we use three experimentally derived EMIC‐driven EEP flux spectra to investigate the impact of this precipitation on trapped radiation belt fluxes. In doing so, we resolve an apparent contradiction with earlier results derived from trapped electron flux populations that suggested EMIC waves only caused significant scattering at ultra‐relativistic energies. We show that strong sub‐MeV EEP measurements are not necessarily mutually exclusive with a strongly relativistic‐only trapped flux response, as the sub‐MEV peak precipitation is comparatively much smaller than the trapped population at those energies. Using a further six EEP spectra, we also demonstrate that EMIC‐driven EEP can generate significant ionisation of the Earth’s atmosphere above 40km, leading to the loss of mesospheric ozone. We find poor correlation between EMIC‐driven EEP fluxes and geomagnetic activity proxies, such that EMIC‐driven EEP is likely to be poorly specified in the forcing factors of modern coupled‐climate models.last_img read more

Teledyne to Produce USD 53 Million Worth LBS-Glider Vehicles for U.S. Navy

first_img View post tag: produce View post tag: worth Back to overview,Home naval-today Teledyne to Produce USD 53 Million Worth LBS-Glider Vehicles for U.S. Navy View post tag: Vehicles Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (NYSE:TDY) announced today that its subsidiary, Teledyne Brown Engineering, Inc., in Huntsville, Ala., received approval from the U.S. Navy to move into Full Rate Production (FRP) Phase on the Littoral Battlespace Sensing-Glider (LBS-G) Program.This is the first ocean glider FRP decision ever made in the history of the Navy. Teledyne Brown will provide the Navy with a fleet of 150 marine gliders for a total contract value of $53.1 million if all options are exercised.Under the contract with the Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command, Teledyne Brown recently delivered 15 Low Rate Initial Production Gliders to the Navy’s Program Executive Office for C4I. The LBS-G gliders were developed and are manufactured by Teledyne Webb Research in East Falmouth, Mass.The first Full Rate Production option calls for the manufacture of 35 gliders with additional options for 100 more gliders. The Teledyne Team, which includes Teledyne Brown (System Integration), Teledyne Webb Research (Glider Development and Production), and the University of Washington – Applied Physics Lab (Glider Operations Center software) finished the design and development phase of the contract in August of last year and received the Low Rate Production contract in December of 2010.“We are very pleased to have Teledyne’s glider selected by the U.S. Navy for full rate production in the Littoral Battlespace program,” said Robert Mehrabian, chairman, president, and chief executive officer of Teledyne Technologies. “This decision validates our reliable and affordable design and reinforces our corporate strategy to integrate our technologies across the company onto platforms such as the glider.”The Navy plans to use the fleet of deep and shallow water gliders with their relative low cost, minimal power usage and longevity at sea to acquire critical oceanographic data to improve positioning of fleets during naval maneuvers. The Teledyne Webb Research Slocum Glider is the cornerstone of the LBS-G program. The Slocum Glider is a torpedo-shaped unmanned underwater vehicle that measures approximately two meters in length and uses changes in buoyancy along with its wings and tail-fin steering to move through the water.Teledyne Technologies is a leading provider of sophisticated instrumentation, digital imaging products and software, aerospace and defense electronics, and engineered systems. Teledyne Technologies’ operations are primarily located in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom and Mexico.[mappress]Source: teledyne, July 12, 2011; July 12, 2011 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: USD View post tag: Naval View post tag: Navy View post tag: millioncenter_img Teledyne to Produce USD 53 Million Worth LBS-Glider Vehicles for U.S. Navy View post tag: U.S. View post tag: Underwater Equipment & technology View post tag: Unmanned View post tag: Teledyne View post tag: LBS-Glider View post tag: 53 Share this articlelast_img read more

Keep cyclists Safe In Our Community By Wendy McNamara

first_imgKeep cyclists Safe In Our Community By Wendy McNamara To learn more about keeping our roads and cyclists safe, visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website. There were 783 bicyclists killed in traffic crashes in the United States in 2017, with many of these tragic deaths preventable.To protect cyclists, legislators passed a new law requiring vehicles to move over for cyclists. A large percentage of crashes can be avoided if motorists and cyclists follow the rules of the road and watch out for each other.Please be considerate of those in our community who ride their bikes. Cyclists have the same rights and responsibilities as people behind the wheel of a vehicle, so give them room, and do not pass too closely. Pass bicyclists as you would any other vehicle — when it’s safe to move over into an adjacent lane. It is very important for drivers to be aware of their surroundings.
