On the other hand, our churches still have a lack of diversity in the membership, you will find mostly white Caucasian individuals (and I love dearly everyone in my congregation), but the Episcopal Church is still mostly a white church, there is only a handful of Latino churches that sometimes are seen as the weird group because they are more conservative than the rest of the church. We have a long way to go to live true diversity, respecting the lives and views of everyone, and including all ethnicities in the membership and in the clergy.

Beginning with the opening ceremony, in which athletes from each country parade around a track before taking their positions alongside fellow competitors, the games provide a visual metaphor for the way many Americans think of diversity. We dress up in costumes, act impressed by our differences and surprised by our similarities: we stand next to each other for a while — always smiling and waving — and then we go home.Those of us in the Episcopal Church, however, know that the reality is never so tidy. Diversity is difficult. It calls for acknowledging — and learning to live with — our differences. This can be messy and uncomfortable; disagreements and divisions occur regularly and we are perpetually at risk of falling apart altogether.This issue of diversity is one of the reasons that, as Ross Douthat of The New York Times recently pointed out, typically homogeneous evangelical megachurches often thrive while mainline denominations, many of which, like the Episcopal Church, have taken up the charge of diversity and inclusiveness, have seen their attendance numbers steadily decline. While no one disputes the numbers, not a lot of people seem to question whether attendance should be used as a measurement of a church’s vitality, as Douthat suggests.It should not. The Christian message is inherently countercultural. While the Gospel provides respite for people who struggle and suffer, it also challenges the status quo. The Episcopal Church, in particular, has become famous (and in some places infamous) for ruffling feathers as it strives to wider open its doors — from its active role in the struggle for civil rights in the 1960s, to its decision to ordain women in the 1970s and more recently its acceptance of LGBT persons, the church’s efforts to embody Jesus’ model of radical inclusion have each been met with resistance and strain. Over time, as these efforts have led to desertions and divisions, they have also resulted in the increasing diversity of the Episcopal Church, making it a place where those who have been denied access elsewhere are welcomed.The process of opening hearts and minds is difficult, but challenging the status quo has always been a fundamental facet of true Christianity. And, at times throughout church history, persecution and death, not sparsely populated pews, has been the consequence.I don’t worry about declining church attendance; in fact, in the parishes I’ve been a part of, I haven’t seen it. But where it is happening, let’s not assume it’s the result of failure, let alone of an attempt by the church to merely “adapt itself to contemporary liberal values,” as Douthat suggests. Rather, attribute the Episcopal Church’s declining attendance to the fact that true diversity, the kind that welcomes differences and looks for sparks of the divine in others, can feel uncomfortable at best and undesirable at worst.While for three weeks every couple of years the Olympic Games model a kind of glossy-sheen diversity, wars still rage over what seem to be irreconcilable differences that threaten to permanently rend humanity. And yet, in the midst of this strife, many find the Episcopal Church to be that rare place wherein a common faith compels us to learn to live with our differences, to become, if not at ease then at least at peace with the grey, and to model a kind of counter-cultural diversity that we believe will find its completion in Kingdom Come.— Jonathan D.

Matthew 9:10; Luke 7:34) and treat them with kindness and respect, without approving of their homosexual behavior; Jesus came preaching repentance from sin, not acceptance of sin (Matthew 4:17; Mark 1:15; Luke 5:32), and He was still calling for repentance after his ascension into heaven (Revelation 2, 3). Jesus did not come to save us in our sins, but to save us from our sins. Jesus said to the woman caught in the heterosexual sin called ”adultery”, “Go now and leave your life of sin.” (John 8:11). Jesus gave up His own life to pay the price for homosexual sins; that’s how much He hates homosexual sins and loves homosexual people (Romans 5:8).

The livelihood in this 20 household village depends on agriculture, greenhouse, and beekeeping. The owner of the house fondly remembers her childhood memories of the landscape and the cliffs where the goats wandered.Save this picture!© Egemen KarakayaShe came to our office following her dream to build a small house in this village. She commissioned us to design a calm structure using a few materials. She dreamt of a house, initially to escape from the crowds of the urban life, and later to move in permanently.Save this picture!© Egemen KarakayaOur design challenge centers on how to use a rather unfortunate terrain with a raised bank of ground. Our first basic idea is a simple rectangular prism that sits on the top of the terrain like an observation deck. There is an entrance courtyard facing the north and a living space which rises towards the south. Save this picture!© Egemen KarakayaSave this picture!PlansThe height of the building increases from 210 cm on the North to 420 cm on the south. This way we are able to get a simple 3-dimensional organization that is 25*8 m in size from a more comprehensive and low northern front, to a more exposed and higher southern front.Save this picture!© Egemen KarakayaWood was used for formwork on the concrete. It is then recycled to build the shutters outside the structure. We used white plaster paint and white terracotta cast terrazzo in the interior. To avoid extra outdoor furnishings, a large number of furniture and cabinets were designed as extensions to the structure.Save this picture!© Egemen KarakayaSave this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Egemen KarakayaWhen the house is not used, the shutters are closed and it transforms into a completely closed box.

The house before renovation was not spatially decent. This was due to the fact that the previous owner had renovated the original state of the house. Originally the house layout was shaped exactly like the other houses within the housing complex. However, because of the unplanned design of the previous owner, the house layout then became spatially awkward with many partitions, little natural lighting and poor air circulation. The house also had a very awkward spatial program that can be seen from how the bathroom was oddly located in the center of the house. Save this picture!© Aditya WiratamaSave this picture!Section ASave this picture!© Aditya WiratamaInitial Idea – It was a great challenge for the architect to start designing since the client demanded a small house clean and simple whereas the existing condition of the house was unquestionably complicated. The initial idea was to demolish all existing partitions and maximize the existing structures that can be used then freshly start to design a new spatial program for the house. Structure – Most of the main structures of existing buildings are maintained for budget efficiency. However, after the start of construction, there were some main columns and beams that were unnecessary as the structure was strong enough to withstand the load. The removal of those columns and beams were of course very helpful in making the existing space more spacious. The main structure of the roof was not changed much.Save this picture!© Aditya WiratamaMaterial – Unlike the structure, many materials and components from the existing house were no longer used, especially for cost suppression. A lot were no longer suitable for use while some that were still suitable to use were not too significant in reducing costs. One that was quite significant and had a large enough volume was the roof, therefore the existing tiles were maintained. All window sills materials were replaced by steel and all doors were made with pivot openings without jambs, making it visually cleaner. Save this picture!© Aditya WiratamaLayout – By reconstructing all existing walls, the new spatial program produces even more space than the original one; adding 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, 1 warehouse, 1 sun room, and 1 mihrab. The addition of the space did not make the room more narrow but it created an even more spacious feeling than before. The main key to the spacious feeling of the house is in the back area where the kitchen, dining room and family room is located with no partition, so that activities can be done more freely. Finally, the Mihrab becomes the center orientation of this house, replacing what used to be a bathroom, thus any activity undertaken by homeowners from all corners of the house will be easy to reach for worship.Save this picture!© Aditya WiratamaLight and Air Circulation – Another thing that is a no less important aspect of the design is air and lighting. The existing condition of the house practically did not have good air circulation, firstly because of the many existing barriers/partitions/walls, secondly due to the absence of cross ventilation. To allow a better air and light flow the architect created a back garden with several functions. First, to make sure that the inside areas of the house obtains good air and lighting in the morning, second to allow different nuances, created from the flow of sunlight that constantly changes, in the house. There are also some rooms that are illuminated naturally with skylights such as the living room.Save this picture!© Aditya WiratamaProject gallerySee allShow lessIROHA Village Factory / Hiroshi Nakamura & NAPSelected ProjectsHouse in Jardim Europa / SPBR ArquitetosSelected Projects Share CopyAbout this officeAditya Wiratama ArchitectOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationBandungOn FacebookIndonesiaPublished on May 07, 2020Cite: “Casa Kusumahdinata / Aditya Wiratama Architect” 07 May 2020.

Knight Foundation launched Knight News Challenge, an international awards programme offering up to $5 million for innovative ideas using digital experiments to transform community news. Applications close on 15 October 2007.With the slogan “You Invent It. We Fund It!” the contest is open to community-minded innovators worldwide, from software designers to journalists to citizens and students of any age.The Knight News Challenge contest aims to use digitally delivered news and information to enhance physical communities and improve the lives of people where they live, work and vote. It is open to individuals, nonprofits/charities, and for-profit businesses. Advertisement Last year was the first time the contest had been run. Grants were made to 25 individuals, private and public entities ranging from MIT to MTV. Some first-year winning projects included:New software that links databases, allowing citizens to learn (and act on) civic information about their neighborhood or block.Cell phone distribution of video news reports from mobile young journalists on the 2008 presidential election.Online games to inform and engage players about key issues confronting New York City.An online environment which lets citizens “play” through a complex, evolving news story through interaction with the newsmakers.Digital newscasts for Philadelphia’s immigrant community distributed through a new citywide wireless platform.To be eligible, entries must involve use of a digital medium and delivery of news or information on a shared basis to a geographically defined community. Although there is a category for commercial applications, most entries are “open-source” and must share the software and knowledge created.This year, for the first time, the web site will allow entrants to invite public comment that will help improve their entries. So far 87 applications have been submitted, which suggests a good chance of success for anyone applying.Gary Kebbel, Knight journalism program officer and the contest’s coordinator, said: “Virtual communities spring up every day. They don’t need our help. Geographic communities are the building blocks of democracy. They do need help.”The foundation plans to invest at least $25 million over five years in the search for bold community news experiments.

The bigot-in-chief in the White House has intensified his aggressive, racist war on immigrants. For four days, starting on Sept. 24, Immigration Customs and Enforcement agents, on orders from the Department of Homeland Security, rounded-up undocumented workers in “sanctuary cities” throughout the U.S. The number arrested: 498.This sweep violated the laws and policies enacted by local governments to offer some protections to these immigrants from federal law enforcement agents, detentions and deportations. Immigrant rights’ activists view these arrests as vindictive retaliation against cities which oppose the White House’s aggressive deportation policies.ICE agents arrested 167 people in Southern California, with 101 detained in Los Angeles. The second-highest arrest figure was in Philadelphia, where 101 immigrants were rounded up. Other arrests took place in Baltimore, the Boston area, northern California, the Chicago region, Denver, New York, Philadelphia, Portland, Ore., and Seattle. These migrants had traveled from 42 countries.ICE claims these immigrants committed “alleged federal immigration violations.” Although ICE is supposed to only detain people who have been convicted of “crimes,” one-third (181) of those grabbed had never been arrested. Of those who have been convicted, nearly 90 cases involved traffic infractions; many others involved petty “crimes.”Immigration agents carried out a real cloak-and-dagger operation against these unsuspecting workers and parents. They monitored everyone’s moves in advance of the arrests. Then, in the early morning hours, ICE agents swept into communities and grabbed people about to start their workday and/or take their children to school.John Parker, a Workers World Party leader in Los Angeles and an organizer of local pro-immigrant rallies, emphasized to this writer, “All progressive people should oppose these outrageous roundups, defend our sisters and brothers from this racist repression, and protest their detentions and deportations by any means necessary.”White House officials began their attack on the hundreds of sanctuary cities during their first week in office. The Trump administration issued an order to withhold federal funds from these local governments, but so far federal courts have blocked such financial punishment.Attorney General Jeff Sessions, another arch-racist, has made it his mission to aggressively root out undocumented workers and to punish every city trying to protect them from ICE. Sessions has demanded that federal agents be given access to jails and that the release of immigrant prisoners be delayed so ICE can arrest them.However, resistance to the Trump/Sessions’ policy has come from hundreds of city governments, which have restricted what local police can do to aid ICE’s pursuit of the undocumented. So the attorney general has retaliated by ramping up arrests of immigrants in these sanctuary cities, claiming “public safety” is at stake.ICE: ‘a politicized security force’Salvador Sarmiento, a National Day Laborers Organizing Network coordinator, criticized the arrests in non-compliant cities: “ICE is operating as a politicized security force … arresting 498 people in cities that represent the political opposition to an unconstitutional federal overreach on immigration. No one believes that Trump or ICE is guided by public safety.” (Mercury News, Sept. 29)The term “sanctuary city” arose in the 1980s when Berkeley, Calif., and other municipal governments pledged to accept migrants from Central America, at a time when some from that region were restricted from entering the U.S. Today the term generally refers to cities which support undocumented immigrants and protect them from ICE.The Trump administration came into office spewing hostility to immigrants, slandering Mexicans and threatening to build a wall between the U.S. and Mexico to keep them, and other migrants from Central and South America, out. These officials have continued to vigorously pursue their racist anti-immigrant campaign, in league with ultra-right Republicans, and playing to their base of super-bigots.Early on in its term, the current White House ordered a travel ban against immigrants from seven Muslim countries. Faced with legal challenges, the final arbiter, the Supreme Court, allowed a partial ban to take effect. Then the administration expanded this ban on Sept. 24 to curtail travelers from other countries as well as immigrants from Muslim countries. The current order bars immigrants from Chad, Iran, Libya, north Korea, Somalia, Syria, Yemen and some individuals from Venezuela.Sessions is doing all he can to buttress and expand the Trump government’s xenophobic campaign. He announced Sept. 5 the end of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, an Obama-era policy that protected 800,000 young immigrant workers, students and parents from deportation. Reportedly, negotiations are ongoing with the Democrats to keep these young people in the U.S.In carrying out the program of the racist clique in the White House, ICE has been deporting immigrants at twice the rate of a year ago. During the first three months of the current administration, the agency arrested more than 400 immigrants daily. It has becoming increasingly clear that the status of all 11 million undocumented workers and their relatives is in danger.It is the duty of all progressive individuals and organizations to denounce the scapegoating, demonizing and criminalization of immigrants and to express the strongest solidarity with them. Their calls for full civil and legal rights must be supported so that all immigrants can live, work, study and raise their families in the U.S., free of government harassment and the ever-looming threats of detention and deportation.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Facebook Twitter Time for Aggressive Harvest of Both Corn and Beans in Western Indiana By Andy Eubank – Sep 23, 2020 Facebook Twitter SHARE Audio Playerhttps://www.hoosieragtoday.com//wp-content/uploads//2020/09/Western-Indiana-needs-to-harvest-corn-and-soybeans-now.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Every week during harvest HAT will bring you yield checks from Specialty Hybrids, and in this first one, there are some very good yields to report from western parts of Indiana. Local field sales representative Eric Wornhoff says even on tough acres soybeans are coming in above expectations.“Fifty-five to sixty-five bushels per acre, and when you get into the high management zones we’re seeing things top out anywhere from low 70’s to mid-80’s in some situations,” he said. “We’re seeing those when soybean moistures are hanging out in that 10-11 percent range, and as we all know when you get down in 8-9 percent we’re losing quite a few dollars and quite a few bushels per semi load going out of the field just because of that moisture shrink. Corn has been very impressive.”And corn is drying down rapidly.“Those of you who hand-shelled some things maybe a week to 10 days ago saw maybe high 20’s to low 30’s, and I had several calls Monday and Tuesday where guys had gone back out to those fields to check as they were waiting for soybean fields to dry out. They’re seeing stuff drop way down into the low 20’s pretty quickly.”In addition to the corn dry down, disease is another reason to harvest it now in many western areas of Indiana.“If you notice out driving the countryside you see a lot of top die down,” he told HAT. “There’s some tar spot coming in as well as some northern corn leaf blight that came in, and this crop is starting to go south pretty quick. We’re telling guys this yield is shrinking from what it was two-three weeks ago so go get that corn. We don’t want to be shelling corn at 16-17 percent. I know that doesn’t make sense sometimes economically, but we will be losing yield and losing standability here pretty quickly if we don’t go out and get this stuff.”Wornhoff says try to shell corn in addition to bean harvest if possible.“Forecast the next ten days is warm and dry through early next week and then we have a cool down middle of the week, so we’re telling guys don’t stop doing beans but if you can switch over in the mornings and go shell some corn that would be great until things dry out, but also the soybeans are really starting to get dry.”He tells HAT well-managed fields are showing a distinct advantage this year. One example can be seen in Delaro fungicide and untreated fields side by side. The Delaro advantage is up to 8-12 bushels in soybeans and 25-35 bushels in corn.This yield check is brought to you by Specialty Hybrids, where it’s your field, our Specialty.
