This is to ensure a fair distribution of the rescue burden in the first place,” said Joaquin Almunia, Commission vice-president in charge of competition policy.ING received a €10bn capital injection from the Dutch State in October 2008, of which €5bn was repaid a year later.It also received €12bn in liquidity guarantees.The Dutch government, at the beginning of 2009, also provided ING with a back-up facility covering 80 per cent of a portfolio of $39bn in illiquid assets.“It remains our ambition to repay the state before the end of next year,” ING spokesman Frans Middendorff said.“We are not surprised but deplore the (Commission’s) decision,” he added.It will now have to pay an interest rate of 3.9 per cent on the 8.439 percent non-cumulative guaranteed trust preferred securities paper, made up of three-month LIBOR plus 360 basis points.ING will be able to call the hybrid loan after repaying the state or after 18 November 2010.

Miguelina Howell speaks during her Feb. 18 installation as the 10th dean of Christ Church Cathedral. Photo: Episcopal Church in Connecticut[The Episcopal Church in Connecticut] The Very Rev. Miguelina Howell became the first Hispanic woman to be a cathedral dean in the Episcopal Church when she was installed Feb. 18 as the 10th dean of Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Hartford, Connecticut.Howell, an Episcopal priest born and raised in the Dominican Republic, was elected last November after serving as the cathedral’s vicar since fall 2013.Howell’s installation was a celebration of culture and people as much as an official ecclesiastical act.A quena flute and a charango – which looks like a small, 10-string guitar – were as integral to the event as the pipe organ, with its 60 stops and 71 ranks. Formal choir offerings from Bach and Faure gave opportunities for quiet meditation as much as a different group of cathedral musicians gave opportunities to clap and move with the rhythms. Incense filled the space, lingering to the end; holy water was sprinkled on everyone, using bundled boxwood sprigs, following a renewal of baptismal vows. Language flowed between English and Spanish.At the installation, Hartford’s mayor Luke Bronin read a proclamation naming Feb. 18, 2016, “Christ Church Cathedral Day.” Other city leaders, with whom the cathedral has built partnerships, were present along with many officials and guests from across the provinces of the Episcopal Church. The Office of Latino/Hispanic ministries arranged to broadcast the service to reach an even wider audience.Underscoring another important partnership that evening, the cathedral installed the Very Rev. Emsley Nimmo, dean of the Diocese of Aberdeen & Orkney in the Scottish Episcopal Church, as an honorary canon of the cathedral. The Very Rev. Issac Poobalan, provost of St. Andrew’s Cathedral in that diocese, read a message of goodwill from their bishop, the Rt. Rev. Robert Gillies.These attendees highlighted the historic 231-year relationship between Connecticut and Scotland, which began in November 1784 when the Rev. Samuel Seabury of Connecticut was consecrated in Aberdeen as the first American Episcopal bishop. Seabury and the three consecrating bishops signed a concordat of agreement between the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the Episcopal Church in Scotland, which included taking the Scottish Eucharistic rites to the newly forming Episcopal Church.Nominating and installing members of one another’s diocese as honorary canons of their cathedrals has been part of how the relationship has been sustained. Currently, the Rev. Michel Belt, recently retired rector of St. James Episcopal Church, New London (home parish of Samuel Seabury), serves as honorary canon of St. Andrew’s Cathedral in Aberdeen.Howell received a cope and stole from representatives of the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the cathedral congregations who asked her to “… be among us as a pastor and priest, encouraging us to participate in God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation in the cathedral, the city of Hartford, the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and the world.”In his homily, Connecticut Bishop Ian T. Douglas emphasized the particular role a cathedral can take in that participation. He started with a history lesson about cathedrals. First millennium cathedrals, he said, were places from which people were sent out to be about God’s mission, and later, to plant churches. Over time, in this country, the Episcopal Church began to build or designate cathedrals as symbols of power and privilege, to which they expected people would flock. Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford, the largest and wealthiest parish in the diocese at the time, was designated a cathedral in 1919.“Instead of go, go in the mission of God,” Douglas said, “cathedrals became a place of come, come and be drawn into the ‘one, true church.’”Douglas’ charge to Howell, and to all of the Episcopalians in Connecticut, was to make Christ Church Cathedral in Hartford a place where people are sent out.“If this cathedral is to have meaning in the 21st century then it must reclaim the ancient calling of a cathedral as a place from which we go, go in the mission of God. Like the 72 in our gospel tonight, sent out to every town and place traveling lightly, we too must go, go from this cathedral, to every town and city in Connecticut and beyond, to effect God’s healing and proclaim that the kingdom of God has come near,” said Douglas.He added, Howell “gets it.”“Lina gets that our vocation, our baptismal vocation, is to be fundamentally about the mission of God in the world. She knows, at the very center of her being, that following Jesus means going out into the neighborhoods, traveling lightly. Each and every one of us is called in baptism to be agents of God’s healing, God’s kingdom, God’s mission of restoration and reconciliation.“In addition, as the first and only Latina dean of an Episcopal Cathedral, Lina embodies the breadth of the cultures and languages of the Episcopal Church in the 21st century; and especially in this city of Hartford where 40 percent of the population is Hispanic. I am convinced that her commitment to the Gospel, her ceaseless energy, her incredible organizing gifts, and her love of Jesus will help this great cathedral be the resource it can in empowering each and every one of us as apostles in God’s mission.”Howell grew up across the street from St. Andres Episcopal church and school in Santo Domingo, in the Dominican Republic. She used to “play church” when she was young, and no one was around, and also helped the students in her Episcopal school to participate in the school’s weekly liturgical service. She began her vocation in the Episcopal Church as a teenager, serving various youth ministries.After finishing her graduate studies and licensing as a clinical psychologist, she earned a theological degree from the Centro de Estudios Teologicos and was ordained a priest in 2003.One of the projects she was asked to do in a ministry formation program was to plant a church where none existed, which she accomplished, with a friend. That parish continues to this day and now runs a school as well. In the Dominican Republic, Howell served three congregations and as executive director of the diocesan camp and conference center.She has served as a member of the presiding bishop’s staff as associate program officer for young adult ministries and leadership recruitment at the Episcopal Church Center in New York. She recently served on the church-wide Task Force for Restructuring the Episcopal Church, the Episcopal Church Executive Council, and is a member of the Episcopal Church Latino/Hispanic Ministries Council of Advice. She also serves as CREDO faculty.Before moving to Hartford, Howell served parishes in Orange and Paterson, New Jersey.Douglas’ charge to “change the direction” of the cathedral has already begun. Over the past few years it has been discerning its current and future vocation. Among the conclusions of that discernment, reached in 2015, were to “develop ongoing relations with civic leaders, and with organizations and institutions that are devoted to the common good”; see itself as a “catalyst for mission, identifying ways in which parishes can work together, connecting parishes with other faith communities that are participating in God’s mission, and connecting the faithful with secular ‘missionaries’”; and “explore new mission fields from time to time, using its resources to clear a pathway for others to follow.”Now, the cathedral faces a moment of “evident adaptive change, creativity and collaboration in the ever-evolving landscape of the city of Hartford, the Episcopal Church in Connecticut and in the world,” Howell said.“The cathedral is looking to be outside of our walls, changing the way we used to do things, and this is part of what my ministry has looked like in the past, in different places,” Howell said. “I bring gifts of collaboration, of empowering lay leaders to recognize their role and their ministry in the life of the church and in particular their participating in God’s mission, of vision and strategic thinking and planning, of organizing, all of which will support the work and vision of the recommendations of the discernment task force.”The cathedral has already started to send people out into the Hartford neighborhoods, co-sponsoring a music program at a local school for children of limited financial means.“I think Hartford is a place in which there’s so much opportunity to make a difference in the world,” Howell said. “It is the right time in the life of this city. The Cathedral is in a position in which we are ready to support the growth of this city now. [We are] present to encourage cultural development and to encourage young children, young people, to see other choices in life, to see there are other opportunities that are available to them.”— Karin Hamilton is canon for mission communication and media for the Episcopal Church in Connecticut.

Please enter your email address here Decision Apopka 2018:Northwest Recreation Complex joins Apopka Community Center as voting sitesThe VOICE of Local ElectionsThe Apopka City Council voted 5-0 last night to open a second voting precinct for the General Election on March 13th, 2018.According to the Agenda Packet provided by the City for last night’s meeting, the clerks office budgeted for two precincts, and was approved in the fiscal year 2017-18 budget. It also states that the City Clerk’s office has had multiple complaints in the past that there is only one polling place in previous General Elections.The two precinct locations for the 2018 election will be the VFW/Apopka Community Center, located at 519 South Central Avenue and the Northwest Recreation Complex Conference Room (3710 Jason Dwelley Parkway). Electors will receive an informational voter card with their precinct listed.Early Voting remains at the Orange County Supervisor of Elections office at 119 West Kaley Street in Orlando. Voters may also request a vote-by-mail ballot through the Supervisor. For more details, go here.There are three elections on the 2018 ballot – Apopka Mayor, City Commission Seats #1 and #2.Incumbent Apopka Mayor Joe Kilsheimer is being challenged by Orange County Commissioner Bryan Nelson in the 2018 Mayoral race.In the seat #1 election, Suzanne Kidd, Gene Knight, Theresa Mott, and Alexander Smith are running to succeed retiring City Commissioner Billie Dean. In Seat #2, incumbent Commissioner Diane Velazquez is currently running unopposed.In the 2014 Apopka elections, 4,961 voters turned-out in the March 11th General Election, while 6,664 voted in the April 8th runoff.In 2016 10,374 turned-out in the March 15th General Election (which was enhanced by multiple voting precincts and presidential candidates also on the ballot in the Florida Primary), while 4,930 voted in the April 12th runoff, which had only one voting site.According to the City’s Public Information Office, it has not been determined if there will be a second polling place in the event of a runoff, which takes place in the event no candidate receives a majority of the votes in the General Election.

I don’t know where it is, other than out at NW complex. I have voted in a lot of different sites however. I have voted at the Methodist church on Park Avenue, the VFW/Community Center, the Apopka High, the Baptist church on Welch, the Baptist church right before Rock Springs, the Orange County Service Building on RSR, and even the library on 436, for a presidential election one year, and that one was the worst location of all, as it was a very long line that snaked around the building in the hot sun, and it was hours before I got to vote, plus virtually no parking spaces, as they were all took up by the people going to the library. The voters parked at 7-11, and got yelled at, at the auto parts store, the same, and down the side of Thompson Road, and even parked into the subdivision along the roadside in there where the homes were. Who made that decision to have a presidential election voter precinct at the library on 436 that doesn’t truly have enough parking for the customers, as it is now? 1 COMMENT Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your comment!

The project is presented as a self-management proposal of our studio aiming at commercializing profitable units in a city area with great investment potential. The search parameter was a land lot which allowed us to construct a building of approximately 700 square meters. Located a block to the south of Pellegrini Avenue and six blocks to the west of Oroño Boulevard, the building “Montevideo 2759” is placed on a rectangular lot 8.50 m front and 10.25 m deep. The 19 m-maximum height limit permitted by the Urban Code of Rosario (Código Urbano de Rosario) for that area was used, and two studio apartments per floor were developed.Save this picture!Facade DiagramSave this picture!Ground Floor PlanSave this picture!© Walter SalcedoIn order to determine the work’s spatiality and aesthetics, our starting point was the north orientation. The balconies were retracted from the building line to optimize the “half open-air” condition of the space. Thus, this area can profit from the winter sun and the summer shade. Due to this design decision, the building skin acquired a thickness which is accentuated by the inclined and interspersed planes between even and odd-numbered floors. In turn, the planes create a technical space to accommodate air conditioning equipment on the outside and a storage space in the inside.Save this picture!© Walter SalcedoAll ceilings present exposed concrete, in contrast to the front and lateral walls. This materiality enables to highlight the play of light and shadow in the facade even more. The ground floor unites to the public space with the same kind of floor used in the garage area and to the sidewalk. Built-in metallic carpentry, this space connects visually to the urban environment through the entrance as well. In this case, we aimed to generate a sober architecture in accordance with its aesthetics, and also with the goals set for this project.Save this picture!Section 1Save this picture!Odd Floors PlanSave this picture!Balconies DetailSave this picture!© Walter SalcedoProject gallerySee allShow lessCall for Entries: 2019 AZ AwardsCall for SubmissionsDiscover Los Angeles Architecture Studios Through the Lens of Marc GoodwinArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Montevideo 2759, S2000PZK Rosario, Santa Fe, ArgentinaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Home Indiana Agriculture News Indiana FFA Officer Team gets Holiday Break from Busy Year Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter By Andy Eubank – Dec 23, 2013 SHARE SHARE Indiana FFA Officer Team gets Holiday Break from Busy Year FFA officers-1It’s break time for a group of young Indiana leaders who have been going hard since being elected to the Indiana FFA state officer team in June. The fall has been a busy time with leadership camps for the state’s chapter officers and district kickoffs. Allie Abney, state FFA president says the first half of the year brought them face to face with many Indiana members.“One of our main goals this year is to increase membership and one way for us to do that is to get out into the community, get to know them and just have a good time,” she told HAT.In addition to many stops across the state, Kayla Hoenert, State Secretary, joined Abney for the state president’s conference in Washington DC.“We got to meet with state officers from every state as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. I had never been to DC so that was a fantastic experience for me to visit our nation’s capital and also get to know some of these other people who will be helping us serve members across the United States.”It seems each year the state officer team is comprised of members who grew up on a farm and members who didn’t. This year one of those who didn’t grow up on a farm is Rebekah Frey, Northern Region Vice-President.“I really didn’t have a huge ag background until I got to the 7th grade and my friend introduced me to FFA. I lived in a rural community but wasn’t really highly involved in the agriculture part of it. when I got involved it opened my eyes to where I was actually living in rural America, and it was beautiful. I learned a ton throughout my years in high school and my uncle moved into the position of FFA advisor. It was fun to learn that FFA is for everyone and not just for the farmers.”Their future plans are also diverse. Frey intends to study graphic design. Hoenert wants to be a large animal vet and will attend Purdue. Abney will double major in ag-econ and ag communications and hopes to attend law school.The other 4 state officers will be profiled Thursday.Hear the interviews with all three, conducted during the Indiana State Fair here: Allie AbneyAllie Abney Kayla HoenertKayla Hoenert Rebekah FreyRebekah Frey Previous articleU.S. and China Make Progress During Joint CommissionNext articleArgentina Files Suite Against EU Biodiesel Restrictions Andy Eubank
Well-known Cameroon reporter held for nearly two years Cameroonian reporter jailed since August, abandoned by justice system CameroonAfrica Protecting journalists ImprisonedInternetCitizen-journalistsWhistleblowersFreedom of expression Receive email alerts CameroonAfrica Protecting journalists ImprisonedInternetCitizen-journalistsWhistleblowersFreedom of expression Follow the news on Cameroon The judge’s verdict was finally issued yesterday after being postponed 27 times. Paul Chouta, a reporter for the Cameroun Web media outlet and a whistleblower critical of the government, was the subject of a complaint brought by the novelist Calixthe Belaya alleging defamation and the publication of fake news.The judge sentenced him to 23 months in prison and ordered him to pay a fine of 160,000 CFA francs and a further 2 million CFA francs in damages (a total of some 3,200 euros).He was alleged to have posted online a video of her in a heated argument with a man without seeking her permission. The video lasted just a few minutes and as a result he was held for two years in pre-trial detention, the maximum sentence for the charges against him.The time he has already served in prison is more than the sentence but he must still raise the funds to pay the financial penalties to secure his release from Yaoundé’s main jail, normally reserved for the most serious offenders.“Not only has Paul Chouta had to face court proceedings and a long period of detention, but he must now pay an exorbitant sum to be able finally to leave prison,” said RSF. “The verdict is the culmination of a farcical case. There is no justification for such a long detention and final verdict unless it is an attempt to silence a troublesome voice. We call on Cameroon’s justice authorities to take firm action to protect freedom of news and information and to ensure that journalists have the right to fair treatment by the judicial system in the country.”Before his detention the journalist had been the target of threats over stories that were critical of the government. In January 2019, a few months after his arrest, he was the target of a knife attack by three unidentified assailants. After his arrest, several of his close associates were also subjected to repeated intimidation attempts by the police.Several journalists are in prison in Cameroon, where press freedom has been eroded in recent years. Amadou Vamoulké, 71, the former head of the state-owned national radio and TV broadcaster CRTV, has been held for almost five years in Kondengui prison in Yaoundé awaiting trial. The journalist Emmanuel Mbombog Mbog Matip was arrested and arbitrarily detained in August 2020 accused of publishing fake news. He has announced he will start a hunger strike from tomorrow.Cameroon is ranked 135th out of 180 countries in the 2021 World Press Freedom Index compiled by RSF.

June 11, 2019 Find out more News HaïtiAmericas Violence against the press in Haiti: RSF and CPJ write to Minister of Justice News Reporters Without Borders responds with a mix of satisfaction and prudence to the news that nine people were indicted on 18 January in connection with Radio Haïti Inter owner Jean Dominique’s April 2000 shooting murder, in which the radio station’s security guard, Jean-Claude Louissaint, was also killed.“We welcome this major judicial step, one that was quite unexpected after years of paralysis and impunity in a case that was handled successively by seven investigating judges,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The investigation was relaunched on 8 May 2013 when former President Jean-Bertrand Aristide, who is reportedly linked to the nine accused, was questioned as a witness. The different degrees of responsibility must now be established with precision on the basis of the depositions of these nine people. Everyone’s cooperation is needed for this case to proceed. The truth must finally emerge, 14 years after Dominique’s murder.“Like SOS Journaliste, we urge the authorities to do take the necessary steps to ensure that Myrlande Lubérisse appears in court in Haiti. A former senator for Aristide’s Fanmi Lavalas party, she is named in Judge Yvikel Dabrésil’s report as the person who ordered Dominique’s murder. The authorities in the United States, where she now resides, should authorize her extradition if required.”The indictments that Judge Dabrésil passed to the Port-au-Prince appeal court on 18 January also named former Port-au-Prince deputy mayor Harold Sévère and former Lavalas organizer and Vaudou priestess Anne “Sò Ann” Augustin, as well as alleged henchmen Frantz “Franco” Camille, Toussaint Mercidieu, Mérité Milien, Dimsley “Ti Lou” Milien (now dead, according to some sources), Jeudi “Guimy” Jean-Daniel and Markington Michel.The last three escaped from prison in February 2005 after two years in detention.The Dominique murder case has been politically very sensitive because of the alleged links to the polarizing figure of Aristide, who returned to Haiti in March 2011 after years in exile. Some of the depositions taken by judges and incorporated into the 18 January report, including the deposition of former Aristide security chief Oriel Jean, support the theory that Aristide himself ordered Dominique’s murder because he posed a obstacle to Aristide’s return to power.
