October 3, 2017 at 4:52 pm I Applaud your call to action. Let us hear from pulpits across the land the exhortation to end the sale of semi automatic and automatic rifles and any civilian. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Bishops United Against Gun Violence statement on Las Vegas shooting [Bishops United Against Gun Violence] We share in the grief and horror of people across our country and, indeed, around the world in the wake of last night’s mass shooting in Las Vegas. We have spoken with our Bishops United Against Gun Violence colleague and brother in Christ, Bishop Dan Edwards of the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada, and we have offered him and the people of Nevada our prayers and promises of assistance. We stand in solidarity with the diocese and the people of Nevada as they cope with this massacre.It has become clichéd at moments such as these to offer thoughts and prayers. But as Christians, we must reflect upon the mass killings that unfold with such regularity in our country. And we must pray: for the victims, for their loved ones, for all who attended to the victims in the immediacy of the shooting, for the first responders who do so much to mitigate the awful effects of these shootings, and for the medical personnel who will labor for many days to save the wounded. We must also enter into the sorrow of those who are most deeply affected by our country’s cripplingly frequent outbursts of lethal gun violence. We must look into our own hearts and examine the ways in which we are culpable or complicit in the gun violence that surrounds us every day.And then, having looked, we must act. As Christians, we are called to engage in the debates that shape how Americans live and die, especially when they die due to violence or neglect. Yet a probing conversation on issues of gun violence continues to elude us as a nation, and this failure is cause for repentance and for shame. It is entirely reasonable in the wake of mass killings perpetrated by murderers with assault weapons to ask lawmakers to remove such weapons from civilian hands. It is imperative to ask why, as early as this very week, Congress is likely to pass a bill making it easier to buy silencers, a piece of equipment that make it more difficult for law enforcement officials to detect gunfire as shootings are unfolding.Even as we hold our lawmakers accountable, though, we must acknowledge that a comprehensive solution to gun violence, whether it comes in the form of mass shootings, street violence, domestic violence or suicide, will not simply be a matter of changing laws, but of changing lives. Our country is feasting on anger that fuels rage, alienation and loneliness. From the White House to the halls of Congress to our own towns and perhaps at our own tables, we nurse grudges and resentments rather than cultivating the respect, concern and affection that each of us owes to the other. The leaders who should be speaking to us of reconciliation and the justice that must precede it too often instead stoke flames of division and mistrust. We must, as a nation, embrace prayerful resistance before our worse impulses consume us.We join with the people of God in fervent prayer that our country will honor those murdered and wounded in Las Vegas by joining in acts of repentance, healing, and public conversation about the gun violence that has ripped us apart, yet again.On Tuesday, October 3 at 9 a. m. Pacific time, churches across the Episcopal Diocese of Nevada will toll their bells in mourning for the victims of the shooting in Las Vegas. Bishops United Against Gun Violence invites congregations across the country to toll their own bells in solidarity at the same time: 9 am Pacific/10 am Mountain/11 am Central/Noon Eastern. The number of times the bells are rung will be based on the number of dead as reported at that time including the perpetrator of the violence.

Parnian house is designed and built for a family of 4 in border city of Maku. The property had the potential to benefit daylight from south and north and great views over Mount Ararat as well as southern heights. Formation of the concept was the result of a challenge between the client and the architects; The commission was to create a distinctive family house and to consider meeting spatial requirements in one level in contrast with popularity of duplex houses in this district.Save this picture!© Farshid NasrabadiSo we initiated dialogue about the spatial relationships and re-defined typical residential plan according to limited gross area. Spatial organisation is formed in 70 percent gross area with a 1.5-meter stepping back on the ground floor which is allocated to public spaces like parking, lobby, mechanical room and a multifunction space with enlarged windows connected to southern yard.Save this picture!Ground floor planFirst floor is accessible via 2 routs; one is the light-weight metal stairway in the yard and the other is the closed stairway and lift.

In New York City hundreds of mostly Arab youth arrived in Times Square on July 17 just as the news ticker above them announced that the Israeli military had begun the ground invasion of Gaza. The demonstration was one of a series of almost daily protests in Midtown Manhattan and quickly it began swelling to thousands.The rally was unique among the week’s actions because it linked together two crises destroying the futures of millions of young people. The demonstration was called under the slogan “Stop the war on children, from Gaza to the U.S./Mexican border.”Numerous Latino/a organizations linked the massive dislocation caused by past U.S. wars to the crisis of tens of thousands of dislocated refugee youth today on the U.S.-Mexican border with the U.S.-supported racist policies of Israel. Every speaker raised their total solidarity with Gaza under such a brutal military offensive. On July 18 in Buffalo, N.Y., about 1,000 people — mainly Arab youth — mobilized in solidarity with Palestine. Speeches demanded an end to the occupation of Palestine, to cease all U.S. aid to Israel and to stop the current massacre on Gaza, part of ongoing genocide against Palestinians.Participants expressed support for the brave Palestinian resistance with placards saying “Resistance is a right!” and “Salute the resistance in Gaza!”The huge crowd repeatedly circled Niagara Square in downtown Buffalo, while cars sporting Palestinian flags also circled on the street surrounding the square. Then, when the crowd advanced across the street to the wide steps of City Hall, they occupied the full width of the sidewalk and street in front as well as covering the steps. The police were then forced to halt all vehicular traffic in the square.The protest marked the first day of ground assaults by Zionist occupation forces into Gaza. Just two days before, the U.S. Congress had approved over $350 million in additional military aid to Israel. In the first half of 2014 alone, the U.S. has already supplied over $3 billion to Israel.In Atlanta, chants of “Israel out of Gaza now!” echoed off the buildings as Palestinians and others protested in front of the Israeli Consulate on July 18. For the third week, the demonstrators took to the streets. The lead 40-foot banner in the colors of the Palestinian flag stated “Israel, Can You See Us Now” while other signage demanded “No U.S. funding for Israeli occupation” and “Self-determination for Palestine.” Hundreds demonstrated in front of Atlanta’s CNN headquarters on July 5 and July 12 to decry the media’s uncritical coverage of Israel’s continued violations of international law and apartheid-like system in the occupied territories. As people of conscience around the world condemn the genocidal Israeli invasion of Gaza, protesters inside the U.S. are among those raising their voices for an immediate end to the Zionist war offensive. Many are well aware of — and angry about — the fact that U.S. taxpayer dollars fund Israel’s weapons of mass destruction and that the U.S.-backed policy toward the Palestinians is what spurs on the terrorist actions of the racist Israeli apartheid state.Many of these protests were part of the July 17-25 national week of coordinated actions demanding “Stop the War on Children! From Gaza to the U.S./Mexican border!” initiated by Al-Awda NY — the Palestine Right to Return Coalition; the May 1st Coalition for Worker & Immigrant Rights; the International Action Center and the People’s Power Assembly.Demonstrations took place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Diego and Washington, D.C., Boston, as well as in other cities and areas large and small across the country. In Window Rock, Ariz., members of the Navajo (Diné) Nation rallied and marched in solidarity with Gaza. (Navajotimes.com, July 17)Here are reports on some of the actions that Workers World Party and other organizations took part in across the U.S.More than 10,000 marched in Chicago on July 20 to condemn Israel’s murderous assault on Gaza. The protest began with a die-in of young people who held the names of Palestinian civilians killed in the Israeli onslaught. The names of all the dead — over 400 at the time — were read.The marchers filled the streets for 10 blocks with a sea of Palestinian flags. “After two weeks of protesting, this is the largest protest in Chicago and the largest in the country so far,” said Hatem Abudayyeh, of the U.S. Palestine Community Network, who co-emceed the rally. Palestinian and Arab women are playing a leading role in organizing the actions each week. Young people in general provide the energy and nonstop chanting. More actions are planned at CNN and the Israeli Consulate in the coming week.In Milwaukee on July 19 some 500 people rallied in front of the Federal Building and then marched to the office of U.S. Sen. Tammy Baldwin, who just okayed U.S. taxpayer funds for Israel. Demonstrators temporarily took the street, but then mounted police pushed families and other protesters back onto the curb.The crowd marched back along Wisconsin Avenue for a final rally at the Federal Building. Reflecting on the turnout of so many families with multiple generations present, Azmi Aladdin said, “My grandchildren will still be protesting years from now, but someday we will be free.”In downtown Raleigh, N.C., on July 19, hundreds of Palestinians, their families and supporters — including many youth and students — came out to denounce the U.S.-Israeli bombing and invasion. Demands included an immediate withdrawal of the Israeli occupying forces from Gaza and that the U.S. stop funding Zionist Israel.In Tucson, Ariz., about 50 people gathered in blazing heat on July 18 during evening rush hour to demand an end to the U.S.-funded Israeli assault. The demonstration brought together activists from Students for Justice in Palestine, Jewish Voice for Peace, the International Action Center and other groups. Passersby and traffic responded with honks, raised fists and waves of support.In Philadelphia, for the second week in a row several hundred Palestinians and their supporters demonstrated July 18 outside the Israeli Consulate. The midday rally confronted a smaller pro-Israel demonstration across the street until finally taking over all four corners and blocking traffic. The rally ended with a march through Center City.In Rhinebeck, N.Y., a small town in the Hudson Valley, a half dozen people came to show solidarity with Gaza and were joined by another nine supporters, people who had been shopping at the nearby farmers’ market. “Free Gaza” and “Stop the killings” were among the signs held.John Catalinotto, WW Buffalo staff, Fightbacknews.org, Sara Flounders, Dianne Mathiowetz, Bryan Pfeifer, Betsey Piette and Paul Teitelbaum contributed to this article.

Facebook Twitter Hatch: Congress Will Act on NAFTA Withdrawal Home Indiana Agriculture News Hatch: Congress Will Act on NAFTA Withdrawal SHARE SHARE By NAFB News Service – Feb 28, 2018 Utah Republican Senator Orrin Hatch weighed in this week on the North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations. The Senate Finance Committee Chair says Congress will intervene if President Trump follows through on his threat to withdraw the U.S. from the agreement. He says, “We’d probably work hard to pass NAFTA, hopefully by a veto-proof vote, because it’s very important, there’s no doubt about it.” Hatch spoke with reporters after speaking at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in Washington, D.C., saying he believes Trump is only making the threat to put pressure on Mexico and Canada. Hatch doesn’t believe Trump will actually withdraw from the agreement. “I think that’s part of his negotiation posture,” he says, “and in all honesty, I think the president is negotiating. I think that he knows what he’s doing.”Meanwhile, Kansas Republican Representative Lynn Jenkins used her face time with Trump this week to make the case of “the importance of access to global markets for agricultural producers in Kansas.” Her spokesperson says the representative emphasized that building off the economic successes from the recent tax cuts, Kansas farmers, ranchers, and manufacturers are eager to deliver and are hoping the administration will continue to seek ways to get American products into new markets.” Previous articleMorning OutlookNext articleClosing Comments NAFB News Service Facebook Twitter

Co-scripted by the recently released Iranian-American journalist Roxana Saberi, it opened this section of the festival on 14 May.“By singling out this film, the jury has deliberately sent a clear message to the Iranian authorities, who have banned it from being screened,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The award also sends a message of support for free expression to Iran’s independent musicians. There should be no restrictions on the screening of ‘No One Knows About Persian Cats’ in Iran.”Filmed clandestinely in Iran and directed by Bahman Ghobadi, the movie shows Tehran’s underground music scene and tells the stories for two young musicians who try to form a band in order to play in a festival in Europe. All musical performances and productions in Iran need permission from the culture ministry. Many music genres are banned.The film reveals a different side of the Iranian capital, one that is little known. Ghobadi, has described it has a “cry against the status quo.”Released from a Tehran prison on 11 May after spending 100 days in detention, Saberi arrived today in the United States. She was arrested in Tehran on 31 January and given an eight-year prison sentence on a charge of spying for the United States. It was finally reduced to a two-year suspended sentence on appeal.

It was established in 1875 and has been based at the corner of East Colorado Boulevard and North Madison Avenue since 1908. Among the church’s unusual innovations was the creation of its own radio station, KPCC, which began broadcasting in 1924; today a cable television station carries a live broadcast of Sunday services.After the 1971 Sylmar Earthquake severely damaged its 1908 church, the congregation turned to architect John Gougeon of Gougeon-Woodman for a new and inspirational design. The resulting building, completed in 1976, presents a fairly plain face to Colorado Boulevard. A dramatic, multi-tiered bell tower announces the church’s presence, but the actual sanctuary retires behind a simple concrete façade. The beauty of the building is revealed when viewed from the back where a soaring half-arch and tall 72-foot-high vertical stained glass window shoot skyward.The interior is also impressive, with seating for 725 people and carefully engineered acoustics tailored to an enormous 6,000-pipe organ salvaged from the old sanctuary. Based on the idea of the half Gothic arch, the new building represents an Expressionist re-imagining of traditional motifs appropriate to a forward-thinking congregation with deep roots in the Pasadena community.Visit The Pasadena Presbyterian Church at 585 East Colorado Boulevard.
