Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.[Episcopal News Service – Hartford, Connecticut] Hace un año, al Ministerio Episcopal de Migración (EMM por su sigla en inglés) le preocupaba cómo podría movilizar a la Iglesia para ayudar en el reasentamiento de unos 25.000 refugiados adicionales en el año fiscal 2017. Ahora, el EMM y otras agencias de reasentamiento se esfuerzan por sobrevivir en un ambiente cada vez más polarizado en que impera el miedo, la desinformación y el malentendido.El Rdo. E. Mark Stevenson, director del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, predicó durante un oficio eucarístico el 5 de junio que dio inicio a “Ama a Dios, Ama al Prójimo”, un programa de adiestramiento en defensa de los refugiados en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan en West Hartford, Connecticut. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.“Hace un año, nuestra principal preocupación era cómo íbamos a pasar de 85.000 refugiados a 110.000…y entonces pensábamos que si no teníamos promoción [o defensa] social, si no contamos con personas que empezaran a asumir este importantísimo ministerio, nunca íbamos a ser capaces de reasentar 110.000 refugiados o más”, dijo el Rdo. E. Mark Stevenson, director del EMM.“Nuestra promoción social consiste ahora simplemente en educar a la gente para que puedan filtrar la insensatez que tanto ven y oyen en los medios de prensa. Los refugiados están huyendo de los mismos problemas que queremos contener con nuestra propia seguridad nacional. Son personas que han sido agredidas y nosotros tememos ser agredidos”.La promoción social y la narrativa que humaniza la experiencia de los refugiados son dos medios con que los episcopales y otros [grupos] pueden corregir la falsa narrativa basada en el temor que actualmente categoriza a los refugiados.  Con ese objetivo en mente, el EMM presentó aquí, del 5 al 7 de junio, un adiestramiento de tres días para capacitar a los episcopales a ser agentes de reconciliación como aliados, defensores y embajadores de sus prójimos refugiados.“Tuvimos esta idea y escribimos este programa basado en las relaciones que hemos establecido con diócesis e individuos —presbíteros y diáconos y laicos— a lo largo de los últimos años. Personas que están muy dispuestas a juntarse no sólo para intercomunicarse y reunirse y entender cómo están llevando a cabo el ministerio de los refugiados en su propio contexto, sino también al objeto de aprender destrezas, especialmente ahora, para cambiar la percepción pública y transformar verdaderamente corazones y mentes en un momento en que los refugiados son tan profundamente incomprendidos”, dijo Allison Duvall, directora de un programa de coauspicio y relaciones eclesiásticas del EMM.La Iglesia Episcopal ha reasentado refugiados en Estados Unidos desde los años 30 del pasado siglo. El EMM es una de los nueve agencias asociadas con el Departamento de Estado de EE.UU. para acoger y reasentar refugiados. El EMM gestiona 31 filiales de reasentamiento en 26 diócesis, proporcionándoles asistencia directa a los recién llegados. El EMM ha reasentado 3.404 refugiados en este año fiscal, que comenzó en octubre de 2016. El anterior año fiscal, el EMM  reasentó 3.071 refugiados.La Rda.

Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.Once personas de distintas partes de la Iglesia Episcopal —provenientes de California, Texas, Rhode Island, Vermont, Pensilvania, Massachusetts, Florida, Carolina del Norte y Kentucky— asistieron al taller de adiestramiento del EMM “Ama a Dios, Ama al  Prójimo”.Financiado por una subvención del Fondo Constable, la capacitación fue el [taller] experimental de una serie de adiestramientos en defensa [o promoción] social programados para los próximos 12 meses.“El Fondo Constable es un ejemplo más de cómo la Iglesia Episcopal encuentra medios creativos de ministrar en tiempos difíciles. Los organismos de gobierno de la Iglesia Episcopal estaban buscando varias maneras de ayudarnos a que se corra la voz”, dijo Stevenson, en una entrevista con Episcopal News Service en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan [St. John’s Episcopal Church] en West Hartford, el sitio donde se llevó a cabo el adiestramiento.Allison Duvall, directora del programa de coauspicio y relaciones eclesiásticas del Ministerio Episcopal de Migración, toma parte en un debate el 8 de junino durante el taller de adiestramiento experimental “Ama a Dios, Ama al Prójimo” en defensa de los refugiados. El EMM tiene planes de hacer la defensa de los refugiados una parte permanente de su ministerio. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.“Ellos [los organismos de gobierno de la Iglesia] reconocieron el hecho que un ministerio verdaderamente efectivo se hace a nivel de base y el objetivo de este programa es darle a las personas en la base las herramientas que necesitan para abogar en defensa de los refugiados… esto es un ejemplo fantástico de cómo un organismo de gobierno puede poner en marcha un proceso que afecte realmente el ministerio sobre el terreno”.El Fondo Constable ofrece apoyo para iniciativas de formación cristiana a través de la Iglesia Episcopal que no estén incluidas en el presupuesto de la Iglesia. El EMM se propone llevar a cabo dos o tres [talleres] de adiestramiento adicionales en defensa de los refugiados antes de la Convención General de 2018y hacer del adiestramiento en defensa social una parte permanente de su ministerio.Para Amanda Payne, ministra de la juventud en la Diócesis de Dallas que trabaja con refugiados en la iglesia episcopal de Santiago Apóstol  [St. James Episcopal Church],  aprender — en una sesión llamada “Refugee 101”— acerca de la intensa investigación de seguridad a que se enfrentan los refugiados antes de que les den la oportunidad de reasentarse resultó ser una información novedosa que la ayudará en sus empeños de promoción social, dijo ella. La Rda. Paula Ott, diácona en la iglesia catedral de Cristo [Christ Church Cathedral] en Lexington, Kentucky, e hija de un judío sirio que vino como refugiado a Estados Unidos en los años 20,  dijo que aprender las destrezas narrativas para personalizar las experiencias de los refugiados es sólo una de las herramientas de la defensa social que ella se propone utilizar mientras intensifica sus esfuerzos en ese terreno.Además de Refugee 101, otras secciones de instrucción y adiestramiento incluyeron técnicas de narración   para replantear el relato; los principios del Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos, así como el contexto, las estrategias y los instrumentos prácticos para la defensa social.El Rdo. Sean Lanigan, rector asociado de la iglesia de San Pedro en Filadelfia, Pensilvania, toma parte el 6 de junio en un ejercicio de adiestramiento del Desarrollo de la Comunidad Basado en Recursos como parte del adiestramiento en defensa de los refugiados “Amar a Dios, Amar al Prójimo” que tuvo lugar del 5 al 7 de junio. Foto de Lynette Wilson/ENS.El Rdo. Sean Lanigan sirve como rector asociado de la iglesia de San Pedro [St. Peter’s Church] en Filadelfia, Pensilvania, una iglesia que trabaja con una agencia local de reasentamiento de refugiados para coauspiciar a una familia de refugiados butaneses. Para él, la conferencia reforzó el mensaje que la narrativa necesita incluir, no sólo relatos de refugiados, sino relatos de cómo el coauspicio cambia a los voluntarios y congregaciones de la Iglesia.A través de Estados Unidos, los episcopales  se asocian con el EMM y otras filiales para reasentar refugiados; el coauspicio de la Iglesia es una parte importante del programa de reasentamiento.  Y si bien el compromiso en el ámbito comunitario y el copatrocinio de la Iglesia  en un ministerio de caso por caso son importantes, la defensa [o promoción] social también es una importante instrumento de participación.“La defensa social debe ser absolutamente un componente, especialmente cuando uno está hablando de reasentamiento de refugiados”, dijo Lacey Broemel, analista de refugiados y política de inmigración de la Iglesia Episcopal. El Congreso aprueba la financiación y el Presidente determina anualmente el número de refugiados que han de reasentarse. “Si usted quiere refugiados en su comunidad, tiene que hablarles [a los funcionarios electos]. Uno no tiene que ser un experto para ser un buen mensajero, no tiene que haber trabajado en el reasentamiento de refugiados durante 45 años como coordinador de casos para saber, para ver la humanidad de alguien, para saber que este programa es bueno y justo y benéfico”.La Iglesia Episcopal no es partidista, pero los episcopales sí participan en política en el ámbito local, nacional e internacional a partir de un enfoque basado en valores cristianos.El adiestramiento en defensa social llega en un momento crítico. Desde su formalización en 1980, el Programa Federal de Reasentamiento de Refugiados ha disfrutado, por lo general, de amplio apoyo público y bipartidario. Además, históricamente, Estados Unidos ha estado a la cabeza del mundo en acoger a gran número de refugiados que huyen de la violencia y la persecución. Sin embargo, en 2015, la aceptación y actitud de los estadounidenses hacia los refugiados comenzó a cambiar de una aceptación fundamentalmente apacible al temor.Lacy Broemel, analista política sobre refugiados y migración de la Iglesia Episcopal, dirige el adiestramiento “Ministerio profético de la defensa social” el 7 de junio durante el adiestramiento experimental “Ama a Dios, Ama al Prójimo”. Foto de  a Lynette Wilson/ENS.Sucedieron dos cosas, explicó Broemel durante una sesión el 7 de junio en la que ella dirigió [un taller] sobre el ministerio profético de la defensa social.Primera, a principios de septiembre de ese año, una fotografía de un niño sirio de tres años que se ahogó y fue a dar a una playa de la costa sudoccidental de Turquía, se tornó viral y dio lugar  a un desbordamiento mundial de apoyo a los refugiados sirios que huían de la actual guerra civil en ese país. Alan Kurdi, su hermano mayor y su madre cuando el bote en que viajaban de Turquía a Grecia se volcó minutos después de  emprender su viaje.Luego, dos y medio meses después, el 13 de noviembre de 2015, unos ataques terroristas mataron a 130 personas e hirieron a centenares más en seis lugares de París. Inmediatamente después de los ataques, los medios de prensa reportaron erróneamente que uno de los atacantes era un refugiado sirio, cuando en efecto los atacantes eran de nacionalidad belga y francesa. . Independientemente de la identidad de los agresores, el temor, el nacionalismo y el flujo masivo de refugiados que llegaban a Europa huyendo de Siria y de otras zonas en crisis comenzó a cambiar la opinión pública contra los refugiados en Europa Occidental y Estados Unidos.Después de los ataques de París, la retórica contra los refugiados [que hasta entonces provenía] de grupos marginales se tornó general, creció el temor y el reasentamiento de refugiados se convirtió en un tema político polarizador exacerbado por una información errónea y por el malentendido del proceso de reasentamiento, dijo Broemel.Sin embargo, en 2016, el entonces presidente Barack Obama aumentó el número de refugiados de 85.000 a 110.000 durante 2016 y prometió reasentar 10.000 refugiados sirios en Estados Unidos durante el año fiscal 2017, el cual termina el 30 de septiembre.A principios de este año, cuando el presidente Donald Trump tomó posesión de su cargo, uno de sus primeros actos como presidente fue firmar un decreto ejecutivo por el que suspendía el programa de reasentamiento de refugiados en EE.UU. Un tribunal federal paralizó el decreto, que es probable que termine ante el Tribunal Supremo más adelante este año. El decreto también reducía en más de la mitad el número de admisiones de refugiados ese año fiscal; una decisión que ha obligado al Ministerio Episcopal de Migración a reducir el tamaño de su red de filiales.El presupuesto de 2018 propuesto por Trump reduce la financiación del programa de reasentamiento [de refugiados] en un 25 por ciento.El Ministerio Episcopal de Migración está asociado a la campaña nacional Apoyo a los Refugiados del 12 al 16 de junio.-Lynette Wilson es jefa de redacción de Episcopal News Service.

A residential building located halfway up a cliff, overlooking the ocean. Thick clumps of trees that grow along the slope of the land surrounding the house cast a series of organic silhouettes that make the slope seem to come alive. We decided that the appropriate form to build would be as low-lying as possible, while also allowing the architecture to become embedded in the surrounding landscape according to the contours of the terrain. This would allow us to minimize the impact of the building on its environment. The design of the walls plays an important role in creating the overall sense of presence that a building projects. As such, we also tried to prevent the walls of this house from becoming surfaces that would obstruct or impede movement and sight.Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaGlass and screens along the enclosed perimeter of the house gives the second floor of this residence a certain transparency. Slender, deep-set eaves cast deep shadows on the facade of the building, softening the impact of the building’s physical presence in relation to its environment. The various components of the building were structured in order to allow the inhabitants to enjoy a different view of the outside on each level. The first floor features a stone floor and concrete walls finished with plaster, while the Japanese paper screens fitted inside the glass reflect the shadows of plants and trees. The hard-edged surfaces and finishes coexist with the soft, muted tones of the Japanese paper. Save this picture!© Hiroshi UedaThe second storey, in contrast, features an open-plan living space, the entirety of which can be opened up towards the ocean. A series of wide eaves stand between the outside of the house and the interior, which is articulated into smaller sections by a row of pillars. Going down the staircase-shaped terrace allows one to gradually draw closer to the outdoor landscape. The section that divides the two different elevations on this floor provides seating throughout, functioning as a unique Japanese-style verandah (engawa). A steel-reinforced concrete structure was used for the second floor, and a Vierendeel bridge structure allowed us to float a large, thin roof on top. The pillars consist of square cylindrical poles (measuring 75mm across) made of solid iron arranged in a densely packed formation using wooden modules (900 x 1800mm). By creating several areas of low-level rigidity, we were able to do away with the need for braces.Save this picture!DiagramsProject gallerySee allShow lessShelter International Architectural Design CompetitionArticlesYale-NUS College Campus / Pelli Clarke Pelli ArchitectsArticles Share Wind-dyed house / acaa Japanlast_img read more

Reducing EPA Budget and Staff “Necessary”

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Reducing EPA Budget and Staff “Necessary” Facebook Twitter Previous articleRyan Martin’s Indiana Ag Forecast for March 9, 2017Next articleGrace College to Offer Agriculture Program Focused on Management Andy Eubank SHARE Reducing EPA Budget and Staff “Necessary” By Andy Eubank – Mar 8, 2017 SHARE Facebook Twitter Heartland on EPA cutsThe Trump administration’s Office of Management and Budget is proposing slashing the Environmental Protection Agency budget by 25 percent.  This proposed reduction for EPA could be achieved through a reduction in staff of 20 percent and reducing grants to states by 30 percent and eliminating nearly two dozen programs, including the Clean Power Plan and Environmental Justice programs.Isaac Orr, a research fellow for energy and environmental policy with the Heartland Institute, a national environmental group based in Illinois said the EPA is a bureaucratic agency that has inflated a lot over the years. “Reducing the budget and reducing the staff is a necessary thing at this point”, said Orr. He added, “ultimately a lot of the responsibility that the EPA has for enforcing the clean water act or clean air act is all taken care of by the states and they do it better and a lot more efficiently.”Orr says the top priority for EPA should be clean air and clean water. He cited the Flint Michigan water crisis as an event where EPA could have done more. “When you look at how much we reduced pollution in the United States over the past 40 years, that’s really something that should be celebrated but at this point it looks like the EPA is just trying to justify their existence by writing rules that are more strict all the time even though the benefits really aren’t there from a health perspective or an environmental perspective.”In a written statement by Orr, he supported his statements in support of reducing the size of the Environmental Protection Agency.  “We all want clean air and clean water. And for the most part, that is what we have. The Clean Air Act passed by Congress has been an unqualified success story, and the air today is exponentially cleaner than just 30 years ago. Levels of criteria air pollutants – which include lead, ozone, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide – have fallen 99 percent, 32 percent, 84 percent, and 60 percent, respectively.”“The federal EPA has become a slow bureaucratic agency unable to adequately respond to potential environmental challenges in a timely manner. A recent report from a government accountability agency revealed EPA had failed to update its regulations properly, while state environmental agencies had adapted to changing circumstances to protect the environment in a more effective manner. If states are doing most of the work, why are we still allocating most of the resources to the federal EPA? It is time to downsize EPA and focus on helping state environmental agencies continue enforcing our environmental laws.”“NFL teams don’t keep declining veterans around at high salaries; they force such players to take a pay cut. Given its track record, EPA either needs to take a pay cut or hit the old, not-quite-so-dusty, trail.”last_img read more

Rent Growth Hits 10-Month High

first_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago March 15, 2019 1,228 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago According to the February Zillow Real Estate Market Report, rent prices grew at their fastest rate in 10 months in February, reaching 2.4 percent year-over-year appreciation. However, while rent price growth increased, national home value appreciation sagged to its lowest level since December 2017. The report found that the U.S. median monthly rent was $1,472 in February, recording an increase from $1,438 a year earlier. This translates to more than $400 in additional yearly expenses for the typical renter. Zillow noted that rents have steadily recovered since a slowdown in the fall that saw the first annual price decreases in more than six years. Data on the annual rent growth reflected an acceleration from January rates in most large housing markets, with the biggest jumps coming in Portland—a turnaround after six straight months of annual rent declines from July through December—and Indianapolis.Orlando and Pittsburgh were the only two large housing markets where rent growth declined. Despite that slowdown, both areas experienced higher-than-average growth, with Orlando rents growing at a faster pace compared to any other large metro area (7.0 percent). Addressing Amazon’s HQ2 withdrawal from Long Island City, the report indicated that New York renters are yet to feel the effect. New York rent prices along with those in Washington, D.C., and Nashville—two markets where Amazon still intends to build large office spaces—have largely followed national trends since the November announcement, Zillow pointed out. “The rental market spent part of last year catching its breath after several years of breakneck growth,” said Jeff Tucker, Economist at Zillow. “Landlords are now coming to terms with the fact that rent cannot grow faster than income forever, and after that short correction we can expect a much more vanilla, slow-growth market going forward. As we enter the 2020s, the demand for rentals is projected to fall as many millennials move on to homeownership,” he added. The median U.S. home value increased by 7.2 percent increase from a year earlier with a  cooldown mostly felt in San Jose, California; and San Francisco. U.S. for-sale home inventory grew 1 percent year-over-year, an increase of 16,137 homes. Inventory picked up the most in San Jose, Seattle, and Los Angeles, further signaling a cooldown from the frenetic pace of the past year in major West Coast markets. Zillow stated that Mortgage rates listed were mostly flat in February. Rates ended February at 4.16 percent, down one basis point from the start of the month. Click here to read the full report.
