And although Hopkins, 60, still makes searching for a new job a daily task, she fears her age is limiting her ability to find employment again.“I try to stay hopeful and be positive,” she said.Hopkins is one of dozens of homeless people in Northampton, Massachusetts, and its surrounding communities who have found solace and a hot meal at an ecumenical outdoor ministry called Cathedral in the Night.The ministry, which started in January 2011, is a collaboration of three ministers: Chris Carlisle, an Episcopal chaplain at Smith College and the University of Massachusetts; Stephanie Smith, pastor of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church in South Hadley, and Eric Fistler, pastor of West Suffield Congregational Church in Connecticut and former minister of education for Edwards Church in Northampton.The three wanted to create a street ministry in Northampton that would provide fellowship for the area’s homeless population and engage college students.Street sign invites all to “Cathedral in the Night” worship and dinner.Northampton, a town of about 28,550, is home to five colleges and universities. The town and the surrounding Pioneer Valley also is home to an estimated 670 homeless people, according to the statistics compiled by Hampden, Franklin and Hampshire counties in 2006, before the recession hit.“There is a certain magnetism between the homeless and students – a natural confluence in demographics,” said Carlisle, who has spent 30 years working with college-age students.Carlisle secured a two-year, $60,000 grant from the Episcopal Church’s Office for Young Adult and Campus Ministries in June 2010 to create the unique street ministry, which is designed to mirror early Christian traditions.“We wanted to create an outdoor community that is inclusive. This is not outreach; it is the church. Jesus was always outside of the synagogue with the people, and we wanted to follow that,” said Carlisle, who currently is on a sabbatical in southern France.The worship service is held each Sunday in front of First Churches, which is allowing the group to use the space. The location is on Northampton’s Main Street, surrounded by boutiques and the R. Michelson Galleries.One cold, windy Sunday evening in mid-February, at least 50 people gathered, including the Rev. Tim Oslovich, who brought at least a dozen of his congregants from Trinity Lutheran Church in Vernon, Connecticut. Several churches from throughout Massachusetts and Connecticut have donated their time and talents for the ministry.The space was outfitted with four propane heaters and six portable lamps decorated with paper cranes. The lamps were created and donated by an architecture class at UMass.Coats, hats, mittens and hand warmers were available for participants to take, as the temperature hovered around 25 degrees.A 30-minute worship service was followed by a meal. All of the food was donated by local businesses and places of worship.“We try to not make it feel too much like a soup kitchen. Everyone helps themselves, and we all eat together outside,” Smith said.And for many of the homeless participants, Cathedral in the Night is a welcome reprieve and an opportunity to learn more about others in similar situations.“I don’t feel alone here. I also feel an obligation to help, regardless of my situation,” said Hopkins.Part of the Episcopal Church grant has gone to an internship program for college students who are interested in exploring alternative forms of worship.Ali Brauner, 19, who is studying religion at Smith, is working to create small groups on her campus to discuss social justice and religion.“There is an obvious disparity in the social classes here,” she said.In addition to drawing more students to help and participate with Cathedral in the Night, Carlisle said he hopes to create more street ministries in Greenfield and Holyoke.But the one-time Episcopal Church grant runs out this year, and the ministry’s continuation will depend on donations.Cathedral in the Night’s focus on social justice in its ministry was a draw for Shannon Farrand-Bernardin, 33, who is a member of St. John’s Episcopal Church and heard about Cathedral in the Night from its advertisements and its Facebook page.“Many homeless individuals, those struggling with addictions or certain mental illnesses, and college students, too, are sometimes hesitant to take part in parish life. They don’t see a place for themselves in church communities, or they feel out of place,” said Farrand-Bernardin, who is a recent seminary graduate and a Smith College community religious advisor. “Cathedral creates a very important bridge for those folks.”— Elizabeth Paulsen is a Brooklyn-based freelance writer and member of Christ Church in Bay Ridge.

This project involved renovating an existing double fronted Edwardian home and adding a rear and first floor extension on a tight site in the inner city suburb of Abbotsford in Melbourne. Working with numerous site constraints, including an easement running diagonally through the site, large existing trees, a west facing block, site access issues and difficult soil conditions, the response was to create an extension that not only addressed all these issues, but created an integrated solution that responded to these constraints in a creative manner. Save this picture!© Folded Bird Photography (Brendan Finn)The curves in the design, in both plan and elevation, were not only a response to the site constraints, but were introduced to create more dynamic, fluid forms, whilst making reference to the bull-nosed, corrugated iron verandah roofs of the typical Edwardian home.

It spreads continuously through the cities, fields and waters, only facilitating bare living necessities, and significantly increasing life quality in general, and therefore the overall rate of productivity.

More images and architects’ description after the break.Save this picture!Courtesy of Andjela KarabasevicOver 2.6 billion people around the world do not have access to adequate sanitation, while around 100 million have no housing whatsoever. These are all just assumptions, while the real numbers are much worse, and impossible to track.

Save this picture!Courtesy of Andjela KarabasevicThe proposal aims to give part of the sky to the poor. By diminishing its own flaws, the city becomes even stronger. Instead of trying to reach the highest point on the sky, the cities will compete in areas of their sky they are willing to give up in order to improve their society. This wall would become a new indicator of a city’s power. Every city gets a certain length of the wall. The longer the wall, the greater the city. Save this picture!Courtesy of Andjela KarabasevicThe structure occupies minimum amount of the expensive land, but a significant percentage of our sky. It is a wall of infrastructure, a vertical field of voids, offering numerous places to sleep, maintain hygiene, cook and store food, store belongings, and to get one’s own permanent location on the world map. Plus endless empty space around it, the priceless sky, which paradoxically turns it into one of the most luxurious living spaces in the world.  Save this picture!Courtesy of Andjela KarabasevicIt is dimensioned and occupied according to its genetic code. Once the occupant has become independent to join the Society, he leaves.  When there are no more occupants left, it is either  to be torn down, reconnecting the humankind to the sky, or  to remain indefinitely, and with its monumentality  pose as a daily reminder to the ignorant society of the problem it  actually resolves.

Bayer Cuts Costs on Inputs for 2017

first_img Previous articleWheat Growers say Lows in Wheat Prices Supports Need for Effective Farm BillNext articleAnother Indiana Pig Farmer Succeeding in National Contest Gary Truitt Home Indiana Agriculture News Bayer Cuts Costs on Inputs for 2017 Bayer Cuts Costs on Inputs for 2017 By Gary Truitt – Sep 1, 2016 Facebook Twitter With low corn price expectations for 2017, growers are placing even more importance on the value of inputs as they plan next year’s corn crop. To help provide cost-effective solutions, Bayer announced that growers will see a change in the price of Balance® Flexx herbicide in 2017.Jason Manz, selective corn herbicides product manager for Bayer, explained that growers’ weed control needs vary greatly and it is important to consider all elements of a herbicide, aside from just the price.“Bayer has a complete portfolio of corn herbicides to address a range of grower needs, including the choice between best-in-class pre-emerge products like Corvus® herbicide and proven, cost-effective weed control with Balance Flexx. This enables profitability throughout the year in a market where inputs can make the difference,” said Manz.“In a soft commodity market, it is easy to focus only on price. What we can’t lose sight of is that a herbicide isn’t any good if it doesn’t control weeds,” Manz said. “Uncontrolled weeds will compete with your crop and reduce your yield. A herbicide that might cost less per acre at application might not control weeds as well as a more expensive option. That will cost you more in the long run by way of lost yield.”Balance Flexx provides growers with a strong foundation that complements any weed control program, protecting yields from day one. It offers a wide range of flexibility with crop rotation and tankmix partners and can be applied in all soil types. An added benefit that sets Balance Flexx apart is its ability to reactivate during dry periods with as little as a half-inch of rain. If a herbicide does not have reactivation, residual weed control becomes nonexistent in dry weather. The residual won’t return after the next rain.Growers can get specific price information about the complete Bayer herbicide portfolio from their trusted local retailer.For more information about Balance Flexx and the weeds it controls, visit www.BalanceFlexx.us. For additional information regarding Balance Flexx pricing and availability, contact your local retailer or Bayer sales representative.Bayer is committed to bringing new technology and solutions for agriculture and non-agricultural uses.

Another Week of Trade Talk, but No Action

first_img Facebook Twitter SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jun 28, 2018 Previous articleUSDA Report Highlights Benefits of Tax Cuts and Jobs Act for FarmersNext articleIs the Indiana Dairy Strategy Working? Gary Truitt Facebook Twitter Another Week of Trade Talk, but No ActionSonny PerdueAnother week has gone by with lots of talk about resolving our trade war with China, but there is no visible progress. U.S. Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue said on national television that the lack of any visible progress on our trade dispute with China has kept the markets depressed and farmers pessimistic. Perdue admitted agriculture is running out of patience, “Farmers understand that China has not been playing fair. They are patriots, but they also know that patriotism does not pay the bills.” He added the trade war comes at a time when the farm economy is in an especially difficult situation.Purdue Ag Economist Dr. Chris Hurt says we are rapidly reaching a critical point in the trade war, “July 6th is the date when we actually start implementing these trade tariffs in a major way.” Hurt remains hopeful a solution will be found, but says there will be uncertainty and volatility in the markets until that happens.The administration keeps promising it will provide help for farmers who are harmed by the trade dispute. However, Perdue remains vague on exactly what that means, “We have a lot of tools at USDA that we can use, but we are not going to release what those are right now.” He said he meets weekly with the USDA top economist who is calculating the financial impact the trade disruption is having, “It is a very complicated calculation, and we are keeping the administration informed.” He indicated the challenge will be to provide relief for farmers while not disrupting the market or running afoul of WTO rules.Those tools involve a $30 billion line of credit for the USDA Secretary from the Treasury Department. According to Dale Moore, vice president for public policy at the American Farm Bureau Federation, “USDA is probably unique among the Cabinet offices in effectively having direct access to Treasury through the Commodity Credit Borrowing Authority. The Secretary has a lot of discretion in how he can approach that.”Meanwhile, Hurt says growers just want to get over the dispute and get on with the business of farming, “U.S. farmers, they just want to produce. They just want to feed the world and produce nutritious food. They don’t want to be involved in these international trade conflicts.” Another Week of Trade Talk, but No Action Home Indiana Agriculture News Another Week of Trade Talk, but No Action SHARElast_img read more

New charges brought against well-known detained journalist

Radio Azadlig was closed and placed under seal after being searched.Ismayilova’s lawyer, Fariz Namazly, said the authorities were just trying to compensate for the flimsiness of the initial charges brought against her. The new charges are boilerplate in nature, inasmuch as human rights defenders such as Intigam Aliyev, Rassoul Djafarov and Anar Mamedli are being held on similar ones.Azerbaijan is ranked 162nd in the 2015 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index after registering one of the biggest falls in score of any of the 180 countries in the index because of an unprecedented crackdown of the few remaining critics and independent voices.Sign the petition: “President Aliyev, free Khadija Ismayilova!”Previous releases by Reporters Without Borders on this subject:- Well-known journalist begins third month in detention (05.02.2015)- RFE/RL’s Baku bureau falls victim to crackdown (26.12.2014)- RWB launches petition for release of Azerbaijani journalist Ismayilova (15.12.2014)- Two months preventive detention ordered for Azerbaijani journalist (05.12.2014) RSF_en Follow the news on Azerbaijan AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News New trumped-up charges carrying a possible 12-year jail sentence were brought today against leading independent journalist Khadija Ismayilova, who has been in pre-trial detention for more than two months.

He has a duty to create an environment that encourages the existence of impartial and critical investigative journalism.” July 2, 2020 Find out more SerbiaEurope – Central Asia Condemning abusesProtecting journalistsOnline freedomsMedia independenceProtecting sources CorruptionImpunityInternetWhistleblowersFreedom of expressionViolence Nearly half of UN member countries have obstructed coronavirus coverage Help by sharing this information Sovilj has been subjected to additional smear attempts since 18 November, when photos taken when he was student were stolen from his Myspace account and began circulating online. The Serbian tabloids have used them to portray him as an alcoholic and drug addict. News N1 programme director Jugoslav Cosic has also been the target of a smear campaign waged by pro-government media accusing him of being a “lobbyist in the pay of Kosovo” – the former Serbian province with an Albanian majority that proclaimed its independence in 2008 – on the grounds that he favoured accepting Kosovo’s independence. Just over two weeks before that, two masked men got into the gardens around the N1 building and scattered hundreds of leaflets with the message “Goodbye Republic of Serbia. Welcome to Luxembourg” – apparently suggesting that N1’s journalists should move to Luxembourg,, where N1’s parent company has its headquarters.

Serbia and Montenegro: Are judges protecting journalists or their aggressors? Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says While the president was opening a children’s park in Belgrade on 15 November, Soviljis said to have upset him by repeatedly asking him questions about allegedly questionable purchases of state-manufactured arms, suggesting that corruption was involved. A few hours later, Vucic had to be hospitalized with cardiovascular problems. RSF_en The situation is increasingly worrying in Serbia, which has fallen steadily in RSF’s World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 90th out of 180 countries.  In mid-October, an improvised installation near the entrance to the N1 building carried the same message. These intimidation attempts are always accompanied by attacks on social media. In response to the attacks, Serbia’s few independent journalists demonstrated outside government headquarters on 16 October in a show of support for N1. The victims include Miodrag Sovilj, a young N1 reporter who is accused of sending President Aleksandar Vucic to hospital and who, as a result, is currently the target of an unprecedented explosion of public anger stirred up by the president’s allies and pro-government media.
