Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Submit a Press Release Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Mediator reports on options to rebuild or replace Christchurch Cathedral Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector Washington, DC Submit an Event Listing Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA A decision as to whether the earthquake damaged Christchurch Cathedral should be reinstated or replaced could be a step closer[Anglican Communion News Service] Christchurch Cathedral in New Zealand could be reinstated after a mediator reported that restoration work could leave the re-built cathedral “indistinguishable” from the one that was all-but destroyed by the 2011 earthquake. But the report says that the “costly and risky project” would be significantly more expensive and take much longer to build than a contemporary replacement.There has been something of an impasse about which of the two options should be followed and the New Zealand government appointed lawyer Miriam Dean QC to mediate. Following the publication of her report, the Diocese of Christchurch said it would look again at the cost and feasibility of reinstating the cathedral. Further announcements are expected in April.The report by Miriam Dean stops short of endorsing either option but,Anglican Taonga reports, “crucially brings to the negotiating table parties that have been at loggerheads over the cathedral’s fate for more than three years.”“Miriam Dean QC and her team did an excellent job of assessing the positions of the parties involved and finding points of agreement. We are grateful for her hard work,” the Bishop of Christchurch, the Rt Revd Victoria Matthews, said, adding that the engineers and quantity surveyors involved were able to reach a large measure of high-level agreement on the engineering options and indicative costs of reinstating Christchurch Cathedral.The cost of reinstatement has been estimated at $105 million New Zealand Dollars (approximately £47.6 million GBP) and the work could be completed by 2022. In contrast, the cost of building a completely new cathedral has been estimated at costing up to $66 million New Zealand Dollars (approximately £30 million GBP).“The Anglican Diocese of Christchurch and the Church Property Trustees wish to move past the current deadlock to find a way forward to re-establish a cathedral in Cathedral Square,” Bishop Matthews said. “We want to support the city to move forward and we recognise the central importance of this building to many people in Christchurch.“It is the calling of the church to minister to people; to serve the lost, the last and the least. As the body of Christ we use buildings, but we don’t exist for the sake of bricks and mortar.“Therefore, comprehensive measures to ensure safety during deconstruction and reinstatement, and measures to achieve future safety including 100 per cent of the New Building Standard, as well as sufficient financial resources are essential.”Further confidential discussions will take place between the government and diocesan officials on the question of safety and cost before further announcements which are expected in April.In August 2013 a transitional “cardboard cathedral” was opened to serve the community of Christchurch.

StudiosOrlando-based Stars North has announced that Shout! Studios has acquired North American rights to its documentary feature Woman In Motion, the inspiring true story of how renowned Star Trek actress Nichelle Nichols pioneered the NASA recruiting program to hire people of color and the first female astronauts for the space agency in the late 1970s and 1980s. Additionally, it chronicles her rise to fame and portrayal of Uhura on Star Trek, which marked one of the first non-stereotypical roles performed by an African-American actress. Her story has been praised for decades as one of the shining examples of the fight for gender and racial equality in America.Directed by Todd Thompson (The Highwaymen, PRE FAB!), the film chronicles how Nichols transformed her sci-fi television stardom into a real-life science career when, in 1977, she embarked on a campaign to bring diversity to NASA. Nichols formed the company Women In Motion, Inc. and recruited more than 8,000 African American, Asian and Latino women and men for the agency. Notable astronauts that were part of the program included Fred Gregory, the first African American to command a Space Shuttle, Sally Ride, the first American female astronaut, and Ron McNair, the second African American in space, who perished in the Challenger accident. Nichelle and her program continue to influence the younger generation of astronauts as well, including Mae Jemison, the first female African American astronaut in space. Despite an uphill battle against a U.S. Government that was hesitant to let her get involved, Nichols persevered and is credited by NASA for turning it into one of the most diverse independent agencies in the United States Federal Government.In addition to Nichols, Woman In Motion features several notable celebrities, activists, scientists and astronauts including Neil deGrasse Tyson, George Takei, Pharrell Williams, Martin Luther King III, Al Sharpton, Vivica A. Fox, Walter Koenig, Rod Roddenberry, Michael Dorn, Guy Bluford, Charles Bolden, Ivor Dawson, Frederik Gregory and Benjamin Crump.“This is a great American story with incredible global impact,” said Thompson. “Nichelle Nichols strived to create a brighter future for us all by proclaiming that space exploration is for everyone. It’s a simple but very strong statement that opens doors and allows all humankind to boldly go.”“Nichelle Nichols not only was a trailblazer in Hollywood, she was a trailblazer for the future of our society,” said Ben Crump. “She took the fight for Civil Rights, diversity and inclusion and gender equality to new frontiers with NASA which continue to serve America’s space program today. She was ahead of her time.”“With America in what is hopefully a transformational moment, there couldn’t be a better time for this joyous and deeply emotional celebration of the remarkable Nichelle Nichols and her work to bring diversity to our space program. This wonderful film will continue Nichelle’s mission by inspiring all children to reach for the stars, whatever those stars may be.” said Jordan Fields, Vice President of Acquisitions at Shout! Studios.A production of Stars North, Woman In Motion was produced by Thompson along with his Stars North partners Tim Franta and David Teek, with Nichelle Nichols as a co-producer and Benjamin Crump and Greg Galloway as executive producers. The film was written by Joe Millin, John McCall and Benjamin Crump. Curated By Media is packaging the film and Ben Crump will executive-produce for Brooklyn Media.Shout!

Condensed semester, lost week to snowstorm adding to some students stress during finals week printThe fourth dean candidate for TCU’s new medical school said she wants to place an emphasis on diversity and integrate other colleges on campus in the education of medical students.Dr. Anne Mosenthal, speaking at an open forum on Friday, said her idea to use colleges such as the Neeley School of Business would help provide students with skills they would not receive from a traditional medical school.“I’m very interested in the leadership and executive MBA programs that are going on at the Neeley School of Business,” Mosenthal said. “I think there’s opportunity for students to learn about other areas that are relevant to healthcare administration.”To encourage diversity in the classroom, Mosenthal proposed a scholarship for all entering students.“I think there should be a commitment to socio-economic diversity,” Mosenthal said. “I think that is a way to attract a diverse group of students who otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend.”Susan Weeks, dean of the Harris College of Nursing and Health Science, said Mosenthal’s strong commitment to diversity is what made her stand out during the selection process.Mosenthal is currently the chair of the Department of Surgery at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School where she is a tenured professor of surgery.She received her Bachelor’s degree from Cornell University and completed her medical training at Dartmouth College. She finished her residency training at Massachusetts General Hospital.Mosenthal is the last of four candidates to speak in an open forum for the deanship of TCU’s new medical school. Dr. Marc Khan spoke on Thursday about his plan to focus on clinic curriculum and Dr. Saul Weiner discussed his goal to contextualize care on Wednesday. Last week, Dr. Stuart Flynn explained his idea for a competency-driven course.A date for the selection of the dean has not been released.

News June 9, 2021 Find out more to go further Iran has just fallen three places in RSF’s 2020 World Press Freedom Index and is now ranked 173rd out of 180 countries December 11, 2020 Find out more Help by sharing this information “The latest report by Javaid Rehman, the UN special rapporteur on human rights in Iran, confirms that the Islamic Republic of Iran is one of the world’s worst countries as regards suppressing press freedom,” said Reza Moini, the head of RSF’s Iran-Afghanistan desk. “Twenty-one journalists are arbitrarily detained, unjustly convicted and denied their rights. They must be freed at once to allow them to spend the Nowruz festivities with their families, from whom they should never have been separated.” News There are 21 journalists and citizen-journalists, men and women, who are preparing to spend Iran’s traditional New Year celebration on 21 March in prison, instead of at home with their families, where they should be. After Hengameh Shahidi’s pardon, RSF asks Supreme Leader to free all imprisoned journalists Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 Organisation This has been the case with Farangis Mazloom, the mother of Soheil Arabi, an imprisoned photo-journalist who was awarded the RSF Press Freedom Prize in the citizen-journalist category in 2017. An appeal court confirmed Mazloom’s 18-month prison sentence at the start of March. Alireza Alinejad, the brother of Masih Alinejad, a journalist living in self-imposed exile, has also had his eight-year jail sentence confirmed. Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Iranian government, one of the world’s biggest jailers of journalists, to grant traditional Nowruz (Iranian New Year) pardons to the 21 journalists jailed in Iran, whose only crime was to do their duty to report the facts. February 25, 2021 Find out more March 18, 2021 Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists News The past year has been especially tough for Iranian journalists because of the Covid-19 pandemic and the censorship imposed on most reporting about the disastrous handling of the crisis and the real figures for infections and deaths. RSF logged a total of 54 case of journalists being questioned, arrested or convicted from March 2020 to March 2021.

While the Supreme Court continues to hear urgent The Supreme Court Advocate On Record Association (“SCAORA”) has made a representation before the Supreme Court with suggestions to better enable the smooth hearing of cases during the nationwide lockdown while the country battles the COVID-19 pandemic.While the Supreme Court continues to hear urgent petitions, via the system of video conferencing, SCAORA has deemed certain steps to be necessary in ensuring further effectiveness of the system especially regarding the hearing of PILs and other matters where standing counsels of all States and Union Territories are required to be present. In order to allow counsels to assist the Court better, it has been urged that the following suggestions be taken up on an urgent and emergent basis- – Office Reports be uploaded on the official website before a PIL is heard. This would enable State Counsels to have confirmation regarding the documents which have been taken on record and thus avoid any confusion or chaos that has ensued recently at times. Currently, there are times where a lawyer is not sure whether these documents were taken on record or not, as they have no way to find out after E-filing them. – Allocation of time slots for hearing a PIL where various counsels are to appear. Since only a limited number of Video Conferencing (VC) links can be issued for a particular hearing, a number of State Counsels are unable to attend the same. To rectify this, it has been suggested that matters which involve all State Counsels may be heard in two or three time slots, to accommodate all concerned, and these slots and related VC links be reflected in the cause list. – Marking of Appearance of advocates on designated WhatsApp groups. Since a WhatsApp group is created to coordinate the matters which are to be heard on a particular day, it is suggested that the official who records the order may also be made part of that group to record the day’s appearances.

By way of the present representation the SCAORA wants to bring to light the steps that is deemed necessary for further effectiveness of the said system more specifically for the hearing of Public Interest Litigations (“PIL”) and other matters involving the presence of the standing counsels of all States and UTs to taken up by the Hon’ble Court. It is requested that the said steps may be taken on an urgent and emergent basis so as to enable the Standing Counsels of all the States to assist the Hon’ble Court effectively during the present situation i.e. the spread of COVID-19 and the need for social distancing.a. Uploading of Office Report before the hearing of PIL’s:- At present as the filings of documents to be submitted to the Court is happening by way of E-filing, there are times when the State Counsels are not certain of whether the documents filed by them have been taken on record or not and hence the same leads to chaos and confusion for the Standing Counsels before the scheduled hearing of the PIL. In view thereof, it is the suggestion of the SCAORA that office reports be uploaded on the official website before the hearing of the said PIL’s for ease of convenience and confirmation of the documents being taken on record. b. Time Slots for hearing of PIL’s- As only limited Video-Conferencing links can be issued for hearing of each matter listed, all the Standing Counsels involved in the hearing of PIL cannot attend the same, the issue has become a concern for the Standing Counsels. In view thereof, it is the suggestion of SCAORA that the hearing of the said PIL’s be conducted in time slots of two or more so as to enable the participation of all the Standing Counsels in the hearing of the said PIL’s. Further, the time slots in which the hearing would be conducted and the Video-Conferencing links would be issued should also be reflected in the Cause list for the particular day.c. Marking of Appearance of Advocates/Appearance slips-As currently the system to marking of Appearance of the Advocates/Standing Counsels has not been set up, it is the suggestion of SCAORA that the whatsapp groups that are created on a particular day for hearing of the matter on that day, the concerned official who will be recording the orders of the said day may also be added on the said group and the Appearance of the Advocates can be marked vide the said whatsapp group. In the alternative, the Advocates/Standing Counsels can mark their appearance through the group and the same may be forwarded to the concerned official.It is most humbly requested that immediate steps may be taken to look into the aforementioned issues being faced by the lawyers on a day to day basis concerning various issues especially pertaining to the hearing of PIL’s and other matters involving the presence of the standing counsels of all States and UTs to taken up by the Hon’ble Court.Thanking youYours sincerely,Joseph Aristotle S.Hony.
