Sunny Hallanan y sus feligreses en la iglesia episcopal de Todos los Santos [All Saints Episcopal Church] cerca de Waterloo, Bélgica, esa pregunta “¿Y si fueras tú?” ha sido un constante recordatorio de que los que escapan al conflicto y la persecución deben ser tratados con compasión y respeto más que con sospecha y temor.Después de haber servido durante un mes como voluntaria en el campamento del Parque Maximiliano, Hallanan llegó a conocer a muchos refugiados. Aunque ella no habla mucho árabe y ellos aún tenían que aprender el francés básico, el solo hecho de sentarse junto a los refugiados y compartir las pocas palabras que ellos conocían parecía suficiente para formar amistades y crear confianza.En Bruselas, la Rda. Sunny Hallanan, a la izquierda, participa el 27 de septiembre en la marcha de la solidaridad en apoyo a los refugiados. Foto de Felicity Handford.Hallanan conoció a médicos, dentistas, abogados, maestros, tenderos y a un físico —personas que en Irak, Afganistán, Siria y otras zonas de conflicto habían compartido el mismo tipo de sueños y responsabilidades que ella tenía hasta que la guerra y el extremismo los obligó a huir para salvar sus vidas. Aunque tienen una apariencia diferente y tienen diferentes costumbres y religiones, se le parecen más de lo que ella podría haber imaginado, pensó Hallanan. “¿Y si fuera yo?”, preguntó, rodeada de refugiados una mañana lluviosa de octubre frente al centro de procesamiento de la Cruz Roja cerca de la Gare du Nord, la estación de ferrocarril norte de Bruselas.“Muchísimas de estas personas han venido aquí a escapar del extremismo religioso. Al venir aquí, se incorporan a la cultura local y han aprendido una lección de cuán devastador puede ser el extremismo religioso”, afirmó ella. “Muchísimas de estas personas son jóvenes cuya opción era: únete a ISIS (el autodenominado Estado Islámico) o se decapitado. De manera que tenemos que mantenerlos aquí. No podemos devolverlos a eso”.La Rda. Sunny Hallanan realiza labores voluntarias en el parque Maximiliano de Bruselas. Foto de Felicity Handford.Un día cualquiera, a los voluntarios del campamento le asignaron distintos trabajos, tales como limpiar la cocina o los baños, servir alimentos y levantar tiendas.“No es un trabajo glamoroso, pero es esencial para crearles a estas personas un ambiente tan bueno como sea posible”, dijo Felicity Handford, feligresa de Todos los Santos que había trabajado de voluntaria en el campamento hasta que fue desmantelado a fines de septiembre.Pero para Handford, el entablar amistades con los refugiados y otros voluntarios fue realmente una parte importante del ministerio.“La primera vez que vine al campamento, me sentía un poco nerviosa respecto a hablar con las personas”, dijo ella.Pero luego un grupo de hombres de Afganistán invitó a Handford a sentarse junto a ellos para poder compartirle sus experiencias. Aunque no hablaban la misma lengua que ella y la comunicación era difícil, Handford dijo que resultaba claro que estos refugiados estaban deseosos de entablar relaciones con las personas de la localidad.“Cuando uno habla con las personas, ellas dejan de ser estadísticas”, dijo Handford. “Ellas no son problemas, son personas que han sido empujadas a salir de su país y que ahora enfrentan un trayecto realmente difícil, y ese es la integración en un ambiente completamente diferente y en una cultura completamente diferente. La manera en que nosotros, como comunidad tratemos con eso sentará la pauta de las relaciones que tendremos con sus países después que este lío se acabe, y eso para mi es esencial”.Un niño iraquí hace un signo de paz desde su hogar temporal en el campamento de refugiados en Bruselas. Según la ACNUR, la mitad de los refugiados son niños. Foto de Felicity Handford.Aunque en los últimos meses los medios noticiosos se han concentrado en los refugiados sirios que huyen de la guerra y buscan asilo en Europa, la violencia en Siria es uno de los conflictos activos de la crisis. Décadas de guerra y violencia en lugares como la República Democrática del Congo, Somalia, Afganistán, Irak y Myanmar han obligado a los ciudadanos a huir y les han impedido volver a sus hogares.En Bélgica se presentaron 5.512 solicitudes de asilo en septiembre. En Alemania, que ha adoptado una política de puertas abiertas hacia los que buscan asilo, se presentaron más de 200.000 el mismo mes.El gobierno de EE.UU. ha anunciado que aumentará el número de refugiados que se reasentarán en Estados Unidos, de 70.000 a 85.000 en 2016. Al menos, 10.000 de esos refugiados serán de Siria. Muchos serán asistidos por el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, el servicio de reasentamiento de refugiados de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera.(La Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera, [ Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society o DFMS] es el nombre legal y canónico con el cual la Iglesia Episcopal está incorporada, funciona empresarialmente y lleva a cabo la misión).Durante más de 75 años, la Iglesia Episcopal ha acogido a refugiados en Estados Unidos, ayudándoles a encontrar seguridad y nuevas vidas como ciudadanos estadounidenses.“Todos los años, el Ministerio Episcopal de Migración trabaja con asociados locales para el reasentamiento, y con congregaciones e individuos voluntarios, para acoger a refugiados en Estados Unidos provenientes de los lugares más afectados por la guerra en todo el mundo”, dijo a ENS Deb Stein, directora del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración. “Este es un ministerio de socorro y de transformación, que le brinda a cada episcopal un modo de responder a la crisis global en la esfera local”.Una familia de refugiados sirios es asistida por voluntarios cuando llegan al campamento en Bruselas. Foto de Ahcene Tighrine.Desde 2013, la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo ha estado respondiendo a las crisis de refugiados a través de asociaciones regionales. En la crisis actual, la agencia trabaja con Socorro Islámico para ofrecerle ayuda a las personas que llegan a las islas griegas, en colaboración con Us (llamada antes USPG) y la Diócesis de la Iglesia de Inglaterra en Europa para ofrecer ayuda de emergencia a los que huyen de sus países a través de Atenas, y en asociación con la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa y sus congregaciones en la medida en que ofrecen hospitalidad y brindan espacios seguros en el tránsito de esas personas [los refugiados] a través del continente.“Las comunidades de fe están bien situadas para desempeñar un papel singular en esta crisis”, dijo a ENS Nagulan Nesiah, encargado de programa de la Agencia Episcopal de Ayuda y Desarrollo. “Una vez que las personas se encuentren en los países donde pueden solicitar asilo, las organizaciones pertinentes tendrán un papel a largo plazo para ayudar con la transición y la integración. Las congregaciones de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa funcionan en múltiples ministerios de reasentamiento. En efecto, algunas de ellas han estado funcionando durante décadas. Estos ministerios encarnan un fuerza esencial de la Iglesia para mantener una presencia permanente en las comunidades y prestan un inapreciable recurso a las personas vulnerables”.Janvier Nzamutuma (a la izquierda) y Felicity Handford (al centro), feligreses ambos de Todos los Santos, escuchan las inquietudes de un refugiado iraquí respecto al tiempo que lleva procesar a los recién llegados a Bélgica. Foto de Matthew Davies.Volviendo a Bélgica, Janvier Nzamutuma, un refugiado que se vio obligado a huir de Ruanda durante el genocidio de 1994, es otro de los feligreses de Todos los Santos que trabajó de voluntario en el campamento de Bruselas.Por haber perdido a sus padres, tres hermanas y un hermano mayor en el genocidio de Ruanda, Nzamutuma podía entender los traumas de la guerra y la persecución y los viajes que los refugiados habían experimentado.Cuando salió de Ruanda, Nzamutuma viajó a la República Democrática del Congo, donde estuvo en un campamento de refugiados durante varios años. Era esta experiencia la que él recordaba cuando levantaron el campamento de Bruselas y razón por la cual sintió la necesidad de trabajar de voluntario allí.“Conocí a un refugiado de Siria que me contó… que estaba viajando en autobús… y que iba con sus hermanos y hermanas y su madre, y a todos los mataron a tiros, y que él había llegado aquí solo, luego esto es parecido a lo que yo había experimentado”, dijo Nzamutuma a ENS, de pie fuera del ahora cercado parque Maximiliano.Cuando se enteraron de que el campamento iba a ser desmantelado a fines de septiembre y los refugiados desahuciados de sus carpas temporales, los voluntarios se preocuparon respecto a donde podrían ir a parar.Pero fue una estrategia de la Platforme Citoyenne de Soutien aux Réfugiés Bruxelles (Plataforma de los Ciudadanos para el Apoyo de los Refugiados de Bruselas), la organización que había administrado el campamento, para obligar a las autoridades locales a asumir una mayor responsabilidad con los recién llegados.“El hecho de que la cola frente a las oficinas del gobierno sea más corta hoy es una señal realmente prometedora porque debe significar que están insertando a más personas”, dijo Hallanan, que llegó a ver el parque vacío a principios de octubre. “Luego, la estrategia de la Platforme Citoyenne parece haber funcionado”.Miles de personas salieron a las calles de Bruselas el 27 de septiembre en una marcha de solidaridad en apoyo a los refugiados. Foto de Felicity Handford.Al igual que Hallanan, muchos episcopales y sus asociados ecuménicos a través de Europa no ven su respuesta a la peor crisis de refugiados del mundo desde la segunda guerra mundial como un evento a corto plazo.“Nuestras iglesias en Europa, con la actual crisis de refugiados, han dado un paso al frente en todas partes”, dijo el obispo Pierre Whalon de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, “no sólo [para atender] necesidades básicas, sino también para [ofrecer ] asesoría en el proceso de asilo”.El obispo Pierre Whalon ayuda como voluntario con algunas personas en la construcción del campamento de refugiados en Bruselas en septiembre pasado. Foto de Ahcene Tighrine.Además de la respuesta de Bélgica, Whalon reconoció la labor de los episcopales en Austria, Francia, Alemania e Italia. “Es una tarea extremadamente ardua y difícil, pero en todas partes contamos con voluntarios increíblemente creativos y con clérigos dedicados”, dijo Whalon, que había visitado el campamento de Bruselas en septiembre y había ayudado a construir mesas para los refugiados con la madera de unos palés. “Estamos marcando una diferencia en cada comunidad donde participamos, y sólo estamos empezando a abordar esta nueva crisis. Es algo espontáneo y de lo que me siento muy orgulloso”.Handford supo durante el tiempo en el campamento que muchos de los refugiados son personas preparadas: “personas que tienen destrezas y dones que si les permitimos que se desarrollen, aportarán algo a la sociedad aquí. Pero tenemos que sobreponernos a ese temor a las diferencias”.La Rda. Sunny Hallanan comparte con refugiados iraquíes que llegaron a Bélgica tres meses antes. Foto de Matthew Davies.“La diversidad es algo maravilloso para las personas en todas partes”, expresó Hallanan. “Si Dios hizo a personas que son diferentes de nosotros, debemos llegar a conocerlas y compartir y regocijarnos con ellas. ¿Quién sabe que maravillas la gente hará en Europa y en nuestro medio gracias a estas personas que vienen y nos traen una perspectiva diferente?”.Para Handford, Hallanan, Nzamutuma y la comunidad de Todos los Santos, su participación voluntaria ha sido un ministerio práctico que le ha añadido un nueva e importante dimensión al compromiso social de la parroquia que ellos se proponen expandir.Pero hay una pregunta que sigue suscitando su respuesta:“Et si c’était toi?”– Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Seeking solutions in housing, transportation, and sustainabilityFrom the Orange County NewsroomOrange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs invited local millennial community leaders and business professionals to explore affordable housing solutions in Central Florida on Oct. 12 at the Orange County Administration Center. The workshop titled, “The Millennial Lifestyle,” included interactive stations for attendees to engage and learn more about Orange County’s new code process, Orange Code, regional living options and to gather feedback on sustainability improvements for the community.“I am so fortunate to be able to witness the compassion and drive of this incredible generation in my four children and half of my direct office staff who are also millennials,” Mayor Jacobs said at the workshop. “As Orange County plans for future growth and development, it’s so important that we get your input because you are the leaders of our future and we want to ensure that our community remains a place that you want to live, work and raise a family.”The program was moderated by one of the Mayor’s millennial staff members, Danny Rivera. The panelists of experts in sustainability, real estate, and transportation sectors included Director of Sustainability at the City Orlando, Chris Castro; Realtor and Property Manager of Orlando Resorts Rental, Daniel Waldron; and Transportation Planner at MetroPlan Orlando, Nikhila Rose.“Orange County builders are building bigger homes – with an average size of 2,800 to 4,000 sq. ft.,” Daniel Waldron said. “However, millennials are looking for smaller square footage, energy efficiency features and more green spaces and amenities. Millennials want smaller houses to enjoy their communities more.”Panelists also touched on the fact that Orlando is a more affordable city to live in than other urban cities, but it is harder to find affordable homes because of lower household incomes. Additionally, many millennials only have one income because of delaying marriage and are also saddled with student loan debt.Transportation was also an important issue addressed. Nikhila Rose from MetroPlan stated that there is a perception that people do not want to leave the “comfort of their cars,” but MetroPlan studies show that 93 percent of residents want more transportation options. However, local challenges include a lot of dense areas encouraging urban sprawl.Sustainability is also of paramount importance to millennials.“If transportation is our lifeblood, I would say that our environment is our DNA,” said Castro. “There is a misconception that green homes are more expensive. You can make homes more affordable and they can be green.”In October 2016, Mayor Jacobs hosted the inaugural Regional Affordable Housing Summit. Planners, developers and local government leaders from across the region gathered to explore affordable housing solutions for Central Florida, including strategies, tools and best practices that have been implemented throughout Florida and across the country. The goal of the summit was to utilize the community’s collective experience and knowledge to create a regional approach to address affordable housing needs.As a result of the Summit, a series of workshops were developed to get the public involved in the decision-making process and to focus on locating areas, both regulatory and monetary, to meet the growing housing need in the region.The Millennial Lifestyle Workshop was a byproduct of the series of Affordable Housing Workshops. This program was aimed at targeting the specific generational group born between the early 1980s to the early 2000s.  Millennials are the largest living generation by population size and are increasingly entering the workforce, purchasing homes and giving back to their communities.In order to better create a community suitable for population growth in a way that enhances the quality of life for current and future generations, Orange County focused on gathering feedback from these local influential millennials to better plan for the future.

Focusing on Crop Nutrition as the Growing Season Begins

first_img Facebook Twitter Previous articleConcerns With Corn and SoybeansNext articleEPA Will Keep Biofuel Mandates Steady in 2021-2022 Ashley Davenport By Ashley Davenport – May 20, 2021 SHARE SHARE Photo: cropnutrition.comAudio Playerhttps://www.michiganagtoday.com/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/Mosaic-2-nutrient-management.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Now that most of the 2021 crop is in the ground, focus is shifting to plant nutrition during the growing season. Taylor Purucker, crop nutrition lead with the Mosaic Company, says to consider nutrient availability and fertilizers with how it aligns when the crop needs it.“We have a lot of really good research which tells us when corn and soybeans take up certain nutrients, how much of those nutrients and for how long,” he said. “With that in mind, it’s important to select fertilizers that are going to supply those nutrients at the right time. It’s part of the 4R Nutrient Stewardship Initiative—select the right source of fertilizer and apply it at the right time.”Weather also plays a key role.“We can apply fertilizer, but if we don’t get enough rain, nutrients might not be in a position that’s available to the roots for the plant to take up,” said Purucker. “On the flip side, there might be too much rain which leaches some soluble nutrients that have negative charges like nitrates, sulfates, and boron into the soil.”Growers might also want to consider enhanced efficiency fertilizers and their impacts on the environment.“Those are fertilizers that get a designation by the Association of American Plant Food Control Officials,” said Pururcker. “Those technologies increase nutrient availability while also reducing nutrient loss to the environment. Those are technologies that are important to consider when we think about the most efficiency out of our fertilizer investment, but also by taking care of the environment.”To learn more about Mosaic’s fertilizer products at cropnutrition.com.

In 2011, one year after its passage, Duffy told the Washington Times that the full name of the act – the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act – is “misleading” because it “stimulated nothing but more government debt” and “fails to actually reform Wall Street or protect consumers,” citing the cost in both labor hours and money as evidence that he believed the pendulum had swung too far the other way.Representative Al Green (D-Texas), Ranking Member of the Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee, defended Dodd-Frank in 2013 by saying that “With reference to Dodd-Frank, Dodd-Frank provides a better way. Prior to Dodd-Frank, we had in essence two means by which we could deal with a systemic crisis – a crisis that involved exigent circumstances. These two ways were one, bankruptcy. Bankruptcy works, but it did not work for Lehman (the investment firm that filed for bankruptcy in 2008, the largest filing in the nation’s history); and two, bailouts. Bailouts are not the preferred choice because the public thinks somehow, and I agree, tax dollars ought not be utilized to bail out these large institutions.”Duffy has also made repeated attempts to reform the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), which was created in 2011 out of the passage of Dodd Frank. Last month, a Duffy-sponsored bill passed by a 401 to 2 vote in the House. H.R. 1265, known as the Bureau Advisory Commission Transparency Act,  calls for each advisory committee and subcommittee of the CFPB to be subject to the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, making the proceedings of those committees open to the public.Other Duffy-sponsored legislation attempting to reform the CFPB is currently pending.
