Photo : Lynette Wilson/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] Le judaïsme, comme toutes les traditions religieuses, appelle – dit le rabbin Victor Urecki – à accueillir l’étranger, le réfugié. Dans la Torah, Dieu dit aux juifs pas moins de 36 fois d’« aimer les étrangers en leur sein », leur rappelant qu’ils étaient jadis des étrangers en Égypte, a-t-il déclaré.Et pourtant, ce n’est pas la foi juive qui conduit Victor Urecki à accueillir et aider les réfugiés qui arrivent à Charleston (État de Virginie Occidentale). « En tant que juif, je me sens appelé à être là pour les réfugiés car l’histoire des réfugiés touche de près les juifs », explique Victor Urecki, conseiller de West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry . « C’est l’histoire de mon peuple. L’image de chaque réfugié devrait être imprimée dans le coeur de chaque juif ».Victor Urecki est intervenu dans le cadre d’un panel de six personnes lors d’un dialogue et prière interconfessionnels, organisé le 20 juin par Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) à l’Episcopal Church Center à New York. Un iftar, le repas que font les musulmans après le coucher du soleil pendant le Ramadan, a suivi le dialogue. (Le mois sacré du Ramadan, observé par les musulmans dans le monde entier comme un mois de jeûne pour commémorer la première révélation du Coran au prophète Mahomet, a commencé le 26 mai et se termine le 24 juin).EMM a encouragé les congrégations à travers le pays à organiser des dialogues interconfessionnels semblables et le panel du 20 juin a été enregistré en vidéo pour une utilisation future, a déclaré l’animatrice Allison Duvall, responsable d’EMM pour les relations de l’église et l’engagement.L’histoire des réfugiés fait partie de l’ADN spirituelle des juifs. Ils ont été contraints de fuir les pogroms en Europe, ont été confrontés à l’antisémitisme et à la haine partout dans le monde et ont enduré des siècles de guerre et de carnage. « Nous avons été injustement pris en tant que spectateurs et brutalisés en tant que victimes. Nous avons été tués dans nos pays… en raison de qui nous étions, de ce en quoi nous croyions et ce que nous pratiquions », a déclaré Victor Urecki, immigré dont les grand-parents et le père étaient des réfugiés.Les réfugiés sont contraints de fuir en raison de qui ils sont, de leurs croyances et de leurs pratiques religieuses, comme l’a confirmé un autre membre du panel. Anastasia Orlova est demandeur d’asile en provenance de Russie. Elle est arrivée aux États-Unis en octobre dernier avec son épouse. Du fait de l’intolérance de la Russie vis-à-vis des personnes LGBT, le couple n’avait que quelques amis proches et Anastasia Orlova disait à ses connaissances qu’elle avait un mari. Elle ne se rendait pas compte à quel point elle était déprimée jusqu’à ce qu’elle quitte la Russie.« Lorsque vous avez peur ou que vous avez honte de vous-même, vous vivez dans un isolement intérieur », explique Anastasia Orlova. Aux États-Unis, Anastasia Orlova et son épouse ont le droit d’être mariées légalement, de pratiquer leurs croyances et elles peuvent s’exprimer en leur propre nom. « Ici aux États-Unis, nous nous sentons finalement protégées ».Les réfugiés qui participaient au panel ont reconnu que, bien qu’ils se sentent en sécurité et libres d’être eux-mêmes aux États-Unis, la politique partisane du pays et les craintes économiques et en matière de sécurité dominantes sont inquiétantes. L’administration Trump a cherché à suspendre et réduire le Programme américain de réinstallation des réfugiés ; en conséquence, EMM a été contraint de réduire ses actions de réinstallation.« Il se peut que les enjeux soient maintenant si élevés, les craintes si profondes et les murs si épais que la seule manière de guérir l’âme d’une nation soit dans le rassemblement d’un cercle d’alliés plus vaste que jamais pour soutenir les réfugiés et les organismes de réinstallation », déclare Stephanie Spellers, chanoine auprès de l’Évêque Primat pour l’évangélisation, la réconciliation et la création. Stephanie Spellers représentait l’Église épiscopale au sein du panel.À Charleston, par exemple, West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry exerce ses activités « au cœur du fief Trump », explique Victor Urecki. Mais si quelque chose lui donne de l’espoir, c’est que les gens, même ceux qui craignent pour leur sécurité et l’économie, sont ouverts au dialogue. « Si vous arrivez à passer la porte et à engager un dialogue, vous pouvez réussir », poursuit-il.West Virginia Interfaith Refugee Ministry est devenu affilié d’EMM en décembre. En tant qu’organisme de réinstallation des réfugiés de l’Église épiscopale, EMM est l’un des neuf organismes qui travaillent en partenariat avec le Département d’État des États-Unis pour accueillir et réinstaller les réfugiés. Au travers de ses 31 organismes de réinstallation affiliés dans 26 diocèses, EMM apporte une aide directe aux réfugiés récemment arrivés. L’Église épiscopale œuvre à la réinstallation des réfugiés depuis les années 1930. Le gouvernement fédéral a officialisé le Programme américain de réinstallation des réfugiés en 1980, en établissant des partenariats avec des organisations religieuses et laïques pour apporter une aide directe aux réfugiés nouvellement arrivés au niveau du pays tout entier. Six partenaires du gouvernement pour la réinstallation sont confessionnels ; le programme a dans l’ensemble bénéficié d’un large soutien bipartisan. Toutefois, au cours des deux dernières années, l’attitude des Américains à l’égard des réfugiés a commencé à changer et à passer d’une acceptation sans protestation à un sentiment de peur.Récemment, EMM a organisé une conférence pour former les défenseurs des droits des réfugiés. EMM propose également aux congrégations des moyens pour participer à la réinstallation des réfugiés dans leur communauté. L’organisme encourage les épiscopaliens à rejoindre le réseau Episcopal Public Policy Network et à défendre les politiques qui protègent les droits des réfugiés et des demandeurs d’asile.La Journée mondiale des réfugiés se tient chaque année le 20 juin, la journée sert à commémorer la force, le courage et la persévérance des millions de réfugiés. Un chiffre sans précédent de 65,6 millions de personnes ont été déplacées par la force dans le monde entier. Parmi elles, 22,5 millions ont reçu le statut de réfugié et moins de 1 % fera l’objet d’une réinstallation. Plus de la moitié de tous les réfugiés ont moins de 18 ans. La plupart sont nés dans des camps de réfugiés où le séjour moyen est de 20 ans.– Lynette Wilson est rédactrice en chef de l’Episcopal News Service.

The Orchard House is a highly site-specific, cast concrete construction, rationally pre-fabricated through the use of a limited set of repeated, modular formwork, and standardized SIPS sandwich panel and pre-fabricated truss framing components. This approach allows a high degree of adaptability to the landscape, while keeping construction costs to a minimum.Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsGorter HatchesRoof Hatch – RHT AluminiumDoorsEGGERWood Laminate Doors in Molecular Plant Science InstituteDoorspanoramah!®ah! PivotDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorSited within a mature apple orchard in Sonoma County, the house is built in conformity with the strict rectilinear geometry of the tree grid, and equally exploiting the secondary diagonal surprises particular to human motion through an agricultural field. The site was intensely studied for the individual particularities of each unique tree within the orchard field, and the house design then developed this same character of individual conditions within a predominantly regularized system. Save this picture!© Anthony VizzariTrue to the character of the orchard, the house is laid out as long sequences of interior and exterior courtyards, defined by the adjacent trees, affording long, metered views along the rectilinear and diagonal axes of the field. The massive concrete walls align with the rows of tree trunks, while the open volumes of the rooms and exterior courts align with the open space between trees, affording a direct spatial continuity between house and landscape, figure and void.The house is a low, single story volume, wheelchair accessible throughout, built with a minimal range of materials: heated concrete slabs, raw concrete primary walls inside and out, with secondary walls and ceiling clad in white drywall on the interior, with galvanized steel on the exterior. Minimal cabinetry and millwork is manufactured of raw Douglas Fir plywood. Windows are fabricated, galvanized steel. The flat roof of the house is low, and kept well below the top limbs of the orchard.Save this picture!© Anthony VizzariProject gallerySee allShow lessThe Hollywood Sign HotelArticlesNew Architecture for New Maribor Art Gallery Competition ResultsArticles Share Area: 4500 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Architects: Anderson Anderson Architecture Area Area of this architecture project Orchard House / Anderson Anderson ArchitectureSave this projectSaveOrchard House / Anderson Anderson Architecture 2008 Photographs Year: Orchard House / Anderson Anderson Architecture CopyHouses•Sonoma, United States Houses CopyAbout this officeAnderson Anderson ArchitectureOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesSonomaHousesUnited StatesPublished on April 15, 2010Cite: “Orchard House / Anderson Anderson Architecture” 15 Apr 2010.

We facilitate a ‘process of operation’ helping to them programme the way they live. In this context it becomes a very natural process, like nesting. Its primal and really there is no more important or profound thing than helping to make a home for a family. I’m inspired by the memories my children have of the places they grew up (with in). Its all about the interior interaction not the facade, the interior is the thing that impacts while for them the architectural envelope was matter-of-fact. Its the type and quality of space my children had that was important to them. Creating a home is a very personal thing. We need to know and understand the people we designing for. It’s like painting a portrait, I can’t imagine an artist could really capture someone without knowing them.Project gallerySee allShow lessJiangyin Primary & Secondary School / BAU Brearley Architects + UrbanistsSelected ProjectsBioCasa 82 / Rosario Picciotto + WelldomSelected Projects Share Kerferd / Whiting ArchitectsSave this projectSaveKerferd / Whiting Architects “COPY” “COPY” Manufacturers: ERCOL, Nectre ArchDaily Australia Kerferd / Whiting Architects Photographs: Sharyn Cairns Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project CopyAbout this officeWhiting ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesDabasAlbert Park3D ModellingAustraliaPublished on July 13, 2014Cite: “Kerferd / Whiting Architects” 13 Jul 2014.

Howard Lake | 30 March 2011 | News Tagged with: Community fundraising Individual giving Institute of Fundraising Law / policy Revised House-to-House Collections Code of Fundraising Practice published AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis The Institute of Fundraising has published its revised House-to-House Collections Code of Fundraising Practice. The new version was developed in response to the growing number of charities undertaking goods and collections and the increasing range of collections options available to charities.The Code gives more specific and detailed ./guidance for the different types of collections that charities can use, and the different parties’ involvements. It also covers the issue of bogus collections and some tips on trying to avoid giving to them, and is designed to help tackle issues such as oversaturation and thereby raise public trust and confidence in house-to-house collections.The Code was revised by representatives of charities, umbrella bodies and commercial collectors. During the public consultation stage it received 44 responses, the most ever received for a code of practice consultation.Peter Storey MInstF(Cert), Director of Marketing, Kidney Research UK and Chair of the Code working party, said: “We are delighted to launch this new Code, which has achieved consensus within the wider fundraising sector around how to conduct house-to-house collections. At a time when clothes collections were getting a difficult press, and this fundraising technique was under threat, the sector has come together to agree the highest standards”.Alistair McLean, Chief Executive of the Fundraising Standards Board, added: “Clothing collections have become a crucial source of income for so many UK charities and it is essential that best practice is established. This new Code will guide not only fundraisers and suppliers, but help the public identify bogus collectors from genuine ones, giving them confidence to keep on donating both cash and goods.”The revised code can be downloaded at no charge from:www.institute-of-fundraising.org.uk/codes 19 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.

Because many fundraisers will have kept 5-7 July clear in their diaries for Convention this year, the CIoF added that it will be running a series of events across those days. These include its Laurie Bold, Executive Fundraising Director at Age UK and Chair of the Convention Board, said: It also noted that it had been affected by the Covid-19 lockdown in terms of a drop in income and a reduction in capacity, including staff changes. This on its own had made planning for Fundraising Convention a challenge. Tagged with: Institute of Fundraising National Fundraising Convention Bookings will open in early Summer.

The Board also recommended that these themes be incorporated into the Fundraising Convention programme this year. The Chartered Institute of Fundraising will hold its annual Fundraising Convention from 27-29 September this year, later than the standard early July date. The Chartered Institute has published more details on the move to September. The Convention Board will do all that we can to support the Action Plan and to ensure that Fundraising Convention embodies the culture that we want to see in our sector. Fundraising Convention is above all, an event for fundraisers, by fundraisers, and moving to September this year gives us the best opportunity to make Fundraising Convention the best it can be for you. Howard Lake | 23 April 2021 | News Convention Board volunteers All fundraisers that have already submitted session ideas will be contacted by Friday 7 May to be told if they have been successful and to check that those who have been accepted are still able and willing to speak at the event in September. The delay and new dates, announced today, have been explained in terms of the Chartered Institute’s increased focus and activity around harassment issues within the fundraising and charity sector. Reports of sexual harassment by and of fundraisers, some of them reported repeatedly to the Chartered Institute, resulted last month in public criticism on social media from fundraisers and members of the Institute’s statement and its treatment of harassment complaints. Criticism included a joint letter from the Chairs of the special interest and regional groups of the CIoF expressing concern. Advertisement Today’s announcement of the Convention dates included a comment that the CIoF recognises “there have been issues in our own complaints process and we are determined to address that. On 26 March we announced the specific next steps we are taking to build a safe and inclusive profession and our commitment to our members. We committed to an Action Plan on tackling harassment, discrimination and abuse, with urgent steps for us to take over the next three months.” Supporter Experience ConferenceAGMa free event focused on safeguarding.

Following the selection of Donald Trump as the next president of the United States, a strange suggestion has appeared via the internet and social media. The suggestion is that people wear a safety pin on their shirt or jacket while in public to show they are “safe” people to those who might feel threatened by a Trump presidency.People who are genuinely considering this move in solidarity with the most oppressed should consider wearing a Black Lives Matter button instead.For sure, they aren’t as easy to come across as a plain safety pin, but whoever sees it will know that you went to a bit more trouble to make a bold antiracist and anti-capitalist statement in public. If you can’t find a Black Lives Matter button, consider a pro-LGBTQ, anti-sexist or anti-fascist button. Get a button that says “Refugees Are Welcome Here.” Buttons are powerful organizing tools; this is why labor activists fought to be able to wear union buttons at work.Many correctly identified Trump as having fascist tendencies in the run-up to the election, but now that the chips are down, the corporate media are backpedaling, urging “unity” behind a racist, sexist monster like Trump. The bourgeoisie are unwilling to self-indict and hand power over to the working class and oppressed. This means we are facing a period of intense struggle. This means wearing a Black Lives Matter button instead of a safety pin.Which message is clearer to the most oppressed? A button signaling your support of the movement fighting for Black lives, or a piece of metal that sends no clear message? Fascists, the Klan and the alt-right cannot appropriate a Black Lives Matter button. It signals disgust with a system that allows Black lives to be stolen away by racist cops, whether into prison or into a coffin. It is the same system that locks up Chelsea Manning for exposing U.S. war crimes and is the same system that prevents women and trans people from health care. This is the system that enabled Trump’s rise to power — not white workers, not third-party candidates and not by popular and universal suffrage.If someone feels like people might not otherwise know they’re safe in their company, it means self-reflection is necessary. Cryptic signals are not a step in the right direction, nor are they needed. It should be immediately apparent to everyone that you stand with the working class and the most oppressed, including incarcerated people and migrants.We can’t always be out in the streets fighting with signs and our bodies for an end to a system that delivered us both killer cops and Trump. So when you’re just running to class, work or even to the store, consider wearing a Black Lives Matter button that will deal a heavier blow against white supremacy and capitalism by uniting the working class.Taryn Fivek Nov. 15FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

This is an expression of my heart, my desire to help and a way to really bring attention to a crisis that this country has not seen for many, many years,” said Hornberger.Hornberger launched Measure of Care and Style (MOCS USA) last August after transitioning his focus from running a successful corporate giftware company in Pasadena for nearly thirty years. He was solely inspired by a visit to downtown L.A.’s “skid row” on Thanksgiving Day three years ago with intent to donate food for the homeless, but realized food was not the only priority that population wanted.“Why underwear? Because it’s needed. Next to money, underwear is the next needed item that a homeless person needs,” said Hornberger. “Not only do we give one for one, we give a set of underwear and a pair of socks for every item sold,” said Hornberger.Hornberger left his job just two months after his powerful experience on Thanksgiving day and did a little soul searching for himself.“I realized I wasn’t fit for what I was doing at the time. My experience on that day was really powerful,” said Hornberger.MOCS USA is Hornberger’s third startup venture in his three decade career in the retail business.“There is no age limit to a start-up,” said Hornberger who made the transition in his mid fifties.“This new venture is a culmination of everything I’ve learned in regard to retail over the past thirty years,” said Hornberger. “The retail industry is changing so much. The model doesn’t work like it once did. Research shows that millennials identify with companies that give back.”MOCS USA operates only online as a way to get the product directly to the user. Initial funding was made possible through the popular crowdfunding platform Kickstarter, which raised $40,000 to launch the company in August 2011.“Over fifty percent of underwear is purchased online. It’s a growing trend,” said Hornberger. “Online competition is fierce and it is growing.”Not to mention MOCS USA is a company born and bred right here in SoCal and hires on mentally and physically challenged individuals through Ability First to help pull, pack and ship orders in the Pasadena warehouse location.“We’re proudly made in California,” said Hornberger. “We’re creating jobs right here in L.A. County.”MOCS USA has donated 2,000 sets of underwear and socks to date and plans to send out another 380 sets next month. Currently, MOCS USA has to selected homeless shelters including Union Station Homeless Services in Pasadena, Union Rescue Mission in downtown L.A. and Austin Street Center in Dallas.MOCS USA currently operates in a “lean” manner and plans take the business to new heights through marketing campaigns, web overhaul and much more. He also expressed the possibility of moving MOCS USA into a subscription based platform such as Dollar Shave Club as an example, which delivers new product to your doorstep every month for a flat rate.“We need to capitalize on online technology. We have done a great job selling to our friends and family, but we are focusing on growing our brand,” said Hornberger.To shop and learn more about MOCS USA, visit http://www.mocsusa.com.

(Nasdaq: MRNA), a biotechnology company pioneering messenger RNA (mRNA) therapeutics and vaccines, today announced that the Singapore Health Sciences Authority (HSA) has approved the interim authorization of its mRNA vaccine against COVID-19 (COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna) for use under the Pandemic Special Access Route (PSAR). “Today’s authorization is another important step in the global fight against COVID-19,” said Stéphane Bancel, Chief Executive Officer of Moderna. “I want to thank the Singapore Ministry of Health and the HSA for their collaboration and for the confidence they have demonstrated in COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna with this decision.” The Singapore Ministry of Health has secured access to COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna through a supply agreement announced on December 14, 2020. The authorization is based on the totality of scientific evidence shared by the Company, including a data analysis from the pivotal Phase 3 clinical study announced on November 30, 2020. Moderna has also received authorization for its COVID-19 vaccine from health agencies in the United States, Canada, Israel, the European Union, the United Kingdom and Switzerland. Additional authorizations are currently under review in other countries and by the World Health Organization. About the COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna The COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna (referred to in the U.S. as the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine) is an mRNA vaccine against COVID-19 encoding for a prefusion stabilized form of the Spike (S) protein, which was co-developed by Moderna and investigators from the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease’s (NIAID) Vaccine Research Center. The first clinical batch, which was funded by the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations, was completed on February 7, 2020 and underwent analytical testing; it was shipped to the NIH National Institutes of Health (NIH) on February 24, 42 days from sequence selection. The first participant in the NIAID-led Phase 1 study of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine was dosed on March 16, 63 days from sequence selection to Phase 1 study dosing.
