Webber says: TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab [Lambeth Palace press release] “I pray that our Christian hope and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ will heal relationships between individuals, communities and nations,” Archbishop Justin Welby says in his Easter letter to partners and heads of other churches around the world.The full text of the letter is published below:“Looking at the world during these times of growing conflict and the challenges of a changing context, we are acutely aware of a sense of helplessness. In South Sudan outbreaks of violence are displacing thousands of people. UNICEF noted recently that the emergency in the world’s newest nation, where nearly 900,000 people have already been forced from their homes, risks becoming overwhelming. Natural disasters as well as the risks in day-to-day survival in Asia’s megacities are hitting the poorest children hardest. A new report published by the International Institute for Environment & Development and the children’s charity Plan International reveals that street and slum children are the most vulnerable to environmental hazards, climate change and natural disasters.“We are aware of the continuing traumatic experiences of Christians and other suffering people, particularly in the Middle East. Religious freedom is being curbed in many parts of the world and human rights trampled upon. And the Ukraine is likely to remain an area of tension for some time to come.“Against all this, as Christians we take courage from the victory won in the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The letter to the Ephesians reminds us that although the world is divided and unjust, God has not abandoned it, nor ever will. God has given Christ all dominion, power and authority and has through Christ raised and made us his co-workers. Christ represents the fullness of the church and he is our peace. Through him dividing walls of hostility between people are broken down. Through him there is a new humanity, a new reality. With him we will be knitted together into one body. Principalities and powers of this world will be called to reason and obedience to God, not in a struggle for power but for truth.“Some of us live in a relatively safe place and a comfortable context, but all of us are duty bound as Christians to pray for our sisters and brothers, who are living in exposed and threatening conditions on a daily basis. They need the assurance that they are not alone and will not be forgotten. They will need our continuing support in whatever ways possible. They will need our friendship and hospitality. Our own insecurities and concerns set alongside the plight of our Christian brothers and sisters will strengthen the realisation that we need each other.“The friendship into which we are called with God and with one another is radical in that God incarnate in Jesus is our friend and brother, sharing his purpose with us and drawing those who choose to follow into an intimate bond with himself and so with each other. God’s kingdom is global. We need to make whatever efforts we can to think and live in this global awareness of friendship, offering hospitality and love in its manifold forms for Christ’s sake.“The Good News is that we are embraced by God in the risen Christ as friends in his kingdom; we are grafted into the stem, intimately joined with the Source of our being and raised to new life in Christ. I pray therefore that our Christian hope and the joy of the resurrection of Jesus Christ will heal relationships between individuals, communities and nations, banish fear, overcome suffering and broker peace, that the dawn may come.“It is in this spirit that I greet you and close this Easter letter with a doxology and an ascription of praise.“‘Now to him who by the power at work within us is able to accomplish abundantly far more than all we can ask or imagine, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever.

Photo: Jose Cabezas/REUTERS[Episcopal News Service] Presiding Bishop Michael Curry sent a letter expressing The Episcopal Church’s solidarity with the Anglican-Episcopal Church in El Salvador as political unrest, fueled by President Nayib Bukele’s continued consolidation of power, threatens democracy and rule of law in the Central American country.“As you gather together for your first in-person diocesan convention since COVID-19 began, I write to assure you that we in The Episcopal Church are holding all of you in prayer, giving thanks to God for you all and the opportunity you have to be with one another again. We have a long and deep history of relationship with your diocese, grounded in our love of God and each other,” Curry wrote in the May 26 letter, timed for delivery with the diocese’s convention this weekend in San Salvador, the capital.“It is in the spirit of this deep relationship that we stand in solidarity with you during this time of both global health pandemic and the challenges of working for peace and human rights. Indeed, we have long been inspired by the ways that the Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador has been a champion of human rights,” he said.El Salvador’s legislative assembly voted earlier this month to remove the five magistrates of the country’s Constitutional Court, a chamber of the Supreme Court, as well as its attorney general, furthering a move by Bukele, who was elected president in 2019, to consolidate power for his popular New Ideas party.International criticism followed, with some leaders worldwide calling the government’s action a legislative or “technical coup.” The Biden administration said the move violated El Salvador’s constitution and stands to weaken other democratic institutions, a concern shared by churches and nongovernmental organizations engaged in justice work in the area.“Our fear is that, just as they did it with the Supreme Court, it’s going to happen to other government institutions, and we consider it a test of democracy in El Salvador. … It’s a hard political moment for us right now,” El Salvador Bishop David Alvarado told Episcopal News Service through an interpreter. Curry’s letter, he said, reminds the church in El Salvador that it is not alone. “We feel the solidarity of the church, and it makes us feel like our church here in El Salvador matters to the rest of the church and that their prayers are with us.”Curry’s letter follows a letter sent last week by the general secretaries of the World Council of Churches and the global ACT Alliance, who also expressed concern over recent political developments.“You have experienced firsthand the pain of violence and oppression and have chosen to reflect the love of God in a world that is in great need of that witness. In our Anglican tradition, we promise to ‘seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving our neighbors as ourselves, and to strive for justice and peace among all people, respecting the dignity of every human being.’ We see these same ideals lifted up in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. … We continue in solidarity with you in the mission and ministry of the Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana de El Salvador, and the larger Iglesia Anglicana de la Región Central de América,” Curry said.El Salvador’s Protestant churches – members of the Latin American Council of Churches – have not come under direct threat or persecution, though their normally open communication with elected leaders and government officials and agencies has been “blocked,” Alvarado said. “We don’t feel the freedom to participate and raise our voices,” and recent requests for meetings with the vice president and other officials have been denied. They also have been shut out of conversations with the government agency that oversees churches and NGOs, which has expressed “no interest in working with the historic churches,” he said.The Anglican-Episcopal Church in El Salvador is part of the Anglican Province of Central America, a region beset by violent civil wars in the 1980s and ’90s and whose churches, both Protestant and Roman Catholic, have historically worked for peace and justice.“For decades, churches in Latin America have shown the love of Jesus by standing with the poor, the marginalized and those whose voices are otherwise not heard. Their ongoing faithful work is an example to us all, as is that of faith-based organizations like Cristosal, which has helped lift up the human rights of all people in El Salvador and strives to address many of the root causes behind the dramatic migration patterns we see all around us,” the Rev. Chuck Robertson, canon to the presiding bishop for ministry beyond The Episcopal Church, told ENS.Earlier this month, the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID, announced it would divert funds from the Salvadoran government directly to civil society organizations, or NGOs, citing deep concerns over the legislative assembly’s May 1 actions.In his letter, Curry also called out specifically the work of Cristosal, whose executive director Noah Bullock has lived in El Salvador and worked for the advancement of human rights there for over a decade. Bullock also is an Episcopal Church-appointed missionary.“We walk alongside Cristosal, whose ministry to advance human rights in Central America is such an integral part of the Anglican spirit around the world,” Curry said.From 1980 to 1992, El Salvador suffered a brutal civil war fought between its U.S.-backed, military led-government and a coalition of guerrilla groups organized as the Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front, or FMLN. The war was fueled mostly by the gross inequalities that existed between a small group of wealthy elites who controlled the government and the economy and the majority of the population living in extreme poverty. (Bukele, the former mayor of San Salvador, was expelled from the FMLN in 2017 for allegedly breaking party rules, and he later went on to create the New Ideas party.)Cristosal began in 2000 as a partnership between Episcopal clergy in the United States and El Salvador. Maintaining Episcopalians’ support, it later became an independent NGO and now works across the El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras on issues of forced displacement, corruption, the monitoring and prosecution of human rights violations, and litigating past war crimes, including taking the lead in the El Mozote massacre case. The constitutional court – the Supreme Court chamber whose magistrates who were removed earlier this month – recently opened a path for investigation in the now ongoing trial of that case after more than a quarter-century.“Human rights work in El Salvador has always been deeply connected to a concept of human rights and dignity that comes from the biblical readings. That’s the origin of the human rights movement in Central America and in El Salvador, specifically,” Bullock told ENS. “Defense of human rights is an integral part of the church’s work in this country. It should be said that democracy here is not an abstraction. When democratic governments were installed in Central America, it put an end to the worst period of human rights atrocities in modern times on the American continent.“Democratic governance and the democratic institutions are guarantees of human life, and if they’re undermined and weakened those protections are lost for Central Americans. … That’s where our work is rooted, and the inspiration for that work has always come from the church. … The best way for us to keep ourselves safe is to counter the increasingly hostile public narrative against human rights organizations and to make visible the almost universal support our cause has around the world. It puts a spotlight on us to keep us safe.”– Lynette Wilson is a reporter and is managing editor of Episcopal News Service.

The “Sixty-one”, a home with the number Freedomky No.061, was assembled (to the surprise of neighbours) during one autumn Friday from 7 am to 3 pm, followed by the construction of the carport and terrace. It uses its compositional dimensions and sizes from the author’s previous modules and places them above each other, smaller S (4 x 7m) on top of larger M (4 x 11,5m).Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceModules were brought to the site fully furnished and equipped, including furniture. The Tachov “Sixty-one” stretches toward the sky and its proportions evoke a similarity with a stylized steamboat, also with the upper terrace – the deck at the fore. From becoming a real houseboat, it is only short of water it could anchor in. It is the very first 2-story Freedomek in the Czech Republic and has its own specially signed label from the author.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe “Sixty-one” conceptually continues along the lines of the inter-war theories of Karel Teige about minimal apartments. Now, several years after presenting No. 001 on Wenceslas square, I find inspiration in the 2-story Baťa half and quarter-houses in Zlín. I was inspired while spending a night in a half-house in Zlín. The “Sixty-one” comes close to Baťa houses in its scale and organization of the interior spaces. The approach to facade division and proportions of window openings may remind one of Corbusier’s houses in the residential area in Pessac.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceHowever, the current trend is moving in the direction of mobile and economic housing: it is noticeable in the famous project of the “nomad” apartment cell Loftcube by the German designer Werner Aisslinger. The projects Loftcube and Freedomky are connected by the dream of freedom and by ecological aspects. However, in the base concept they are different. Freedomky are closer to the Central-European region and German speaking countries with its organization of the interior space, and with their material usage of wood and signature design they are true to Ateliér Štěpán. Loftcube has a territorially wider and clientele-wise smaller range.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe “Sixty-one” is 95% wooden. Its bearing structure is from glued wood and has exact joints made according to a Swiss patent. Exact milling of the joint into the shape of a trapezoid are made very simply and their strength is immense. The insulation consists of wood fibre insulation panels that have a beneficial faze shift of day – night. The facade is diffusionally open, made of northern larch.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe house is heated by radiant panels, ventilated through local recuperation, and windows are wooden with a triple glass panel. The house sits on five ground foundation strips. The interior is white and wooden and reflects the main construction materials of the house. Furniture is made of birch plywood with hidden hardware, the flooring and staircase from solid oak.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceThe “Sixty-one” Freedomek works with the author’s principles of “peasant ecology”, therefore a rational ecology created with a “peasant’s sense and wisdom” and not by the pressure of technology. In this approach the winners are simple and thought-out solutions over complicated technological complexes. It does not use pseudo-ecological components that are ineffective and non-economical in this area and would only follow popular trends. The verification of these principles are the yearly energy expenses of this Tachov Freedomek at the pleasant amount of 840 euros.Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNiceProject gallerySee allShow lessSummer Stage at Kastav, Crekvina / Nenad FabijanićSelected ProjectsNot So Big House / Sudaiva StudioSelected Projects Share 2017 Manufacturers: Hi-Macs, JAF GROUP, ABB, Freedomky, Inventer Marek Štěpán Save this picture!© Jakub Skokan, Martin Tůma / BoysPlayNice+ 26Curated by Paula Pintos Share Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeAtelier StepánOfficeFollowFreedomkyOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesTachovCzech RepublicPublished on March 17, 2019Cite: “Freedomek No.061 / Atelier Stepán, Freedomky” 17 Mar 2019.

French reporter says he has been kidnapped in northeastern Mali

Dubois, who works for Libération and Point Afrique, is an experienced reporter and knows Mali well. He was reporting in the field at the time of his abduction.RSF was informed two days after he went missing, when he failed to return on time to the Malian capital, Bamako. In coordination with his editors, RSF took to the decision not to report his abduction in order not to hamper the possibility of a rapid positive outcome. The French foreign ministry in Paris has meanwhile confirmed Dubois’s “disappearance.” The video is still in the process of being authenticated.“We urge the Malian and French authorities to do everything possible to obtain his release and we offer our full support to his family and friends,” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “Coming just ten days after two Spanish journalists were killed in neighbouring Burkina Faso, the report of this reporter’s abduction is another cruel blow to journalism in the Sahel.”The presence of armed groups in the Sahel is making journalism extremely dangerous there. Two Spanish journalists, reporter David Beriain and cameraman Roberto Fraile, were killed when the anti-poacher patrol they were covering was attacked on the road leading to the Pama national park in eastern Burkina Faso on 26 April.The north and centre of Mali continue to be extremely dangerous. Ghislaine Dupont and Claude Verlon, two French journalists working for Radio France Internationale, were murdered there in 2013. Seven years later, the investigations being conducted jointly in France and Mali have still failed to shed light on all the murkier aspects of this double murder. Mali is ranked 99th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index. News Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Malian and French authorities to do everything possible to obtain the release of Olivier Dubois, a French journalist who says he has been kidnapped by an Islamist armed group in Mali.

BelarusEurope – Central Asia ——-28 November 2005Censorship fears as last independent television station sidelines outspoken presenterReporters Without Borders condemned a decision by the management of Ren-TV to prevent a star presenter on the news analysis programme “24” from broadcasting. Olga Romanova was told on 24 November that she was not going on air that night. Three security guards, none of them employed by the station, physically stopped her from entering the studio after she refused to accept the ban.“Today in Russia, the government controls virtually every media in the country“, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “Ren-TV is the last TV station still seen as independent.“Romanova specialised in reports critical of the authorities and in particular the Kremlin’s policy towards the broadcast sector, making this case particularly worrying.”Reporters Without Borders said it was anxious about the future of the station. “It was the last bastion of the independent broadcast media and we fear the Russian media landscape will be the poorer for it”.A few days before being ousted, Romanova was banned from presenting two topics by the head of programming. The first related to the end of the trial of a son of the defence minister, Sergey Ivanov, who killed a woman in a car accident, and the second was about the construction of a 15-million dollar crystal chapel by the architect Zurab Tsereteli, who is close to the government.The new managing director of Ren-TV, Alexander Ordjonikidze, explained the ban on the journalist by the need to boost the channel’s ratings by trying out new programming and new presenters and not to allow Olga Romanova to monopolise the evening schedule.Ren-TV management changed in July and the Russian steel company Severstal and oil group Surgutneftegaz, both close to the government, now share 70% of its stock. The third owner is German company Bertelsmann.Ordjonikidzé said that Romanova would resume work on 28 November. The presenter has meanwhile decided to take legal action against the security guards who prevented her from getting into the studio.
