Gene Robinson named to two Chautauqua Institution posts

first_img Rector Tampa, FL TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA The Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson is the former bishop diocesan of New Hampshire.[Chautauqua Institution press release] In anticipation of the departure of Director of Religion the Rev. Robert Franklin at the conclusion of the 2017 Chautauqua Institution season, President Michael E. Hill has announced plans to reorganize the Department of Religion with an eye toward shaping a national dialogue on faith in society.Retired Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson, formerly of the Diocese of New Hampshire, will assume the new role of vice president and senior pastor of the Chautauqua Institution effective Sept. 1.  Robinson will provide executive leadership for the Department of Religion and will chair a new volunteer advisory group, the President’s Advisory Council on Faith in Society.Currently a fellow at the Center for American Progress,  Robinson is an internationally recognized interfaith leader. He is among the inaugural group of 13 senior fellows at Auburn Seminary, the first leadership development and research institute in the country to launch a fellowship program to cultivate the skills of multi-faith leaders working for justice. Also an outspoken advocate for the rights of marginalized populations,  Robinson is recognized for his groundbreaking work with the LGBT community, youth communities and those suffering from abuse and addiction.Longtime Associate Director of Religion Maureen Rovegno will be promoted to the role of director of religion, overseeing the day-to-day operations of the department and serving as a key programmatic partner to  Robinson.Robinson is no stranger to Chautauqua, having served as a popular and thought-provoking speaker/lecturer and as chaplain of the week during the 2011 season.“Religion is at the center of many of today’s most pressing issues and most difficult challenges,” Robinson said. “Yet in our increasingly polarized society, there are fewer safe places to have meaningful conversation about those challenges. Chautauqua and its Department of Religion have been, and will continue to be, a place where those conversations can happen, where all viewpoints are heard, and where every human being is honored and valued. Through the curated conversations from a religious perspective, our goal is no less than to heal the world.”Read the full release here.

He aims to create “new brand coherence, operational streamlining and service efficiencies” that the company can pass on to its charity client base, while “preparing the ground for major new growth and development“.The new structure will mean redundancies at the company. Kibble explained: “In any major business reorganisation or merger it is essential to review internal staffing strctures. Sadly and inevitably that means a number of redundancies. However, our structural changes have been carefully planned to maximise our strengths and our clients will share and benefit from our success.Kibble joined the board of the £22 million company with a specific remit to lead the company, and therefore the group, into its next stage of development.“FI has experienced phenomenal growth in the last few years, said Kibble, way beyond what was expected. Now I am pulling the group together through management optimisation and operational efficiencies.FIL has been at the forefront of developing professional door-to-door fundraising and delivers around 7,000 new donors for its charity clients every week through D2D alone. At the Institute of Fundraising Convention in July the company launched charity key recovery service Key2Giving and its online support system.

Crop Insurance System is Working, But Problems Remain

first_imgHome News Feed Crop Insurance System is Working, But Problems Remain SHARE Cash may also be tight when it comes to purchasing inputs for next year’s crop. Murphy promised claims would be paid quickly, “Once the claim has been processed, we will have payments out in 30 days.” He said, in fact, some claims are already being paid. Not only will there be a lot of crop insurance claims, they will be big claims; and, for many, that will mean an audit. Murphy urged growers to start collecting paperwork now, “Start collecting your records now, don’t wait until the peak of harvest to go to the elevator and ask for records.”  He added, since many Indiana growers had a claim last year, those records may be enough. He indicated that once more than 5% of the claims in the state have been audited, RMA may relax the rules on auditing claims over $200,000.  He explained that because this is a federal program which uses tax payer dollars, these audits are necessary. But farmers in the audience complained that, with insurance premiums coming due in September and no crop to sell, some farmers will be short of cash. Murphy said RMA has made changes to address this situation, “We have moved the deadline back to the end of October to allow for 60 days before the interest penalty kicks in.”  With a rate of 18%, most growers will want to avoid the interest penalty and get premiums paid before the deadline. By Gary Truitt – Aug 14, 2012 SHARE William MurphyFederal Crop Insurance officials are traveling the country to make sure the claim process is going well in areas hard hit by the drought. Bill Murphy, administrator of the Risk Management Agency, met this week with Indiana farmers and crop insurance agents to provide assurance that the crop insurance system will be able to handle the massive number of claims caused by the drought.  On the Starkey Farm in Hendricks County on Tuesday, he said there would be enough money to pay all the claims and enough people to process them, “The companies have enough experienced field people to process the claims, so I feel the process will move along smoothly.” He said an early and prolonged harvest will also help spread the load over a longer period of time.center_img Facebook Twitter Crop Insurance System is Working, But Problems Remain Murphy, who has more than 3 decades in the crop insurance industry, said this is by far the worst drought he has seen and will represent the biggest test for the crop insurance program to date.  He indicated that those farmers who participated in the Enterprise Unit program this year will find it will work very well for widespread drought claims. He told HAT he anticipates that the program, currently a pilot program, will become permanent in the next Farm Bill. Murphy also indicated that his agency was making changes to the crop insurance program that may keep rates unchanged next year, or even lower them in some cases.[audio:|titles=Crop Insurance System is Working, But Problems Remain]Audio Player Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.Podcast: Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: RSS Facebook Twitter Previous articleFarmers Day at Indiana State FairNext articleDuring Tour Japan Pork Group Puts Faces to Indiana Suppliers Gary Truittlast_img read more

Akbar Ganji goes on hunger strike : “No one should be imprisoned – not even for a second – for expressing an opinion.”

first_img Receive email alerts RSF_en Iran is stepping up pressure on journalists, including foreign journalists, in run-up to election Help by sharing this information May 20, 2005 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Akbar Ganji goes on hunger strike : “No one should be imprisoned – not even for a second – for expressing an opinion.” IranMiddle East – North Africa IranMiddle East – North Africa Organisation Call for Iranian New Year pardons for Iran’s 21 imprisoned journalists News Follow the news on Iran A human rights organization recently formed by journalists in the western province of Kurdistan has reported a major crackdown on the press there and said 14 journalists were summoned by courts in the city of Sanandaj.Those who were summoned are Mohammad Sadegh Kabovand, Ejlal Ghavami, Tonya Kabovand, Namo Hedayati, Yosef Azizi, Kaveh Hosinpanahi, Jahangir Hashemi, Jamshid Vaziri, Hasan Amini and Majid Mohamadi of the weekly Payam-e mardom-e Kurdestan, Roya Tolou, the editor of the weekly Resan, Abdolah Sohrabi, the publisher of the weekly Rouj Halat, and Saman Solimani, its editor, and Hossin Ahmadinyazi, the editor or the weekly Asoo. They have all been accused of “publishing false news and publicity against the regime” and “attacking national security.” Iran: Press freedom violations recounted in real time January 2020 to go further June 11, 2021 Find out more News News Journalist Akbar Ganji announced yesterday in a statement issued through his lawyer, Youssef Molai, that he has begun “an unlimited hunger strike” to protest against his imprisonment, the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) reported.Reporters Without Borders reacted by warning the Iranian authorities that they will held responsible for any deterioration in his already poor state of health. “It is insane that a hunger strike is the only recourse for imprisoned journalists who are trying to obtain their rights as detainees, including the right to make phone calls or to be let out of the prison for short periods,” the press freedom organization said. “Ganji’s case is serious because he has not even been able to have the treatment which is required by his condition and which has been recommended by his doctors.”Ganji said in his statement: “I protest against my illegal and unjust imprisonment, all the more so because I cannot even pursue my treatment outside Evin prison. I am beginning an unlimited hunger strike this evening. No one should be imprisoned – not even for a second – for expressing an opinion.”———————22.04.2005 – Akbar Ganji is seriously ill after five years in prisonIranian journalist Akbar Ganji, who completes his fifth year in Tehran’s Evin prison tomorrow, is seriously ill and should be granted an immediate and unconditional release, Reporters Without Borders said today.”Ganji is one of Iran’s leading journalists and, at the same time, the one who has been imprisoned for the longest period,” the press freedom organization said. “We call on the judicial authorities to stop ignoring the prison doctors, who have been saying for three years that he needs to be let out of prison for treatment. His condition requires immediate hospitalization and the Iranian authorities will be held responsible for their criminal attitude.”Reporters Without Borders added: “Ganji was imprisoned five years ago and is being denied his rights as a prisoner now because he criticised the impunity prevailing in Iran in his articles and because he participated in the pro-reform debate.”Ganji, who worked on the daily paper Sobh-e-Emrooz, was arrested on 22 April 2000 after appearing before the press court accused of writing that leading figures, including former President Hashemi Rafsanjani and former intelligence minister Ali Fallahian, had been involved in the murder of opponents and intellectuals in late 1998. He was also accused of taking part in a conference in Berlin about reform in Iran which the government charged was “anti-Islamic.”He was sentenced on 13 January 2001 to 10 years in prison but the appeal court reduced this to six months on 15 May 2001. However on 15 July 2001, the supreme court quashed the May sentence on technical grounds and imposed a six-year jail sentence.He is being held in solitary confinement and, unlike other political prisoners, is not allowed to phone his wife, and is rarely allowed to leave the prison, although the law permits this. In the course of his five years in prison, he has been allowed only 40 day-passes, most of them for medical appointments. Hospital doctors have recommended that he be hospitalized for back problems and asthma, which has got worse because of his prison conditions, but the judicial authorities continue to block this. His lawyer, Nobel peace laureate Shirin Edabi, has voiced great concern about his state of health.The repression meanwhile continues in Iran. Several journalists were summoned for questioning in March by different judicial and security authorities. Kivan Samimi, the editor of the monthly Nameh, was summoned on 30 March by a Tehran court. Mohamad Javad Roh of the daily newspaper Shargh was summoned several times and was threatened over his articles about the elections. Journalist Akbar Ganji announced yesterday in a statement issued through his lawyer, Youssef Molai, that he has begun “an unlimited hunger strike” to protest against his imprisonment, the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) reported. “Ganji’s case is serious because he has not even been able to have the treatment which is required by his condition and which has been recommended by his doctors”, Reporters Without Borders said.

The Bench of Justice Siddharth gave this order after hearing the arguments of both the sides in the Anticipatory Bail Plea filed by Purohit in connection with a matter registered against her. It may be noted that an application for anticipatory bail was filed before the High Court on behalf of Aparna Purohit in connection with an FIR was registered in Gautam Budh Nagar in Uttar Pradesh against Aparna Purohit and others under sections 153-A (1) (B), 295-A, 505 (1) (B), 505 (2) of IPC. Significantly, a First Information Report (FIR) has also been registered against Aparna Purohit, ‘Tandav’ Web Series Director Ali Abbas Jafar, Producer Himanshu Krishna Mehra and Writer Gaurav Solanki and others at Hazratganj Kotwali in Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh) for allegedly depicting Hindu gods in a bad light in the web-series Tandav and ‘which could lead to religious flare-ups’. The Complaint, lodged by Senior Sub Inspector Amar Nath Yadav states that on perusal of twitter handles and other social media platforms, angry outburst on social media against the content of the web series (Tandav) was noticed and that people are posting its clippings. The Complaint stated that in the 22nd minute of episode number 1, there are dialogues which may spread caste-based enmity. Also, it states that the person holding a dignified post like that of prime minister has been shown in a very derogatory manner throughout the web series. In fact, the UP Police had reached Mumbai to investigate the case. However, last month, the Bombay High Court granted transit anticipatory bail to Tandav web series director Ali Abbas Zafar, producer Himanshu Mehra, Amazon content head Aparna Purohit and writer Gaurav Solanki enabling them to seek regular pre-arrest bail from Uttar Pradesh. The three-week anticipatory transit bail was granted by Justice PD Naik days after the Hazratganj Police in UP booked under several sections of the Indian Penal Code and Information Technology Act for allegedly portraying Hindu gods in a bad light. As reported by The Press Trust of India (quoting sources), taking cognizance of complaints that Hindu gods and goddesses have been ridiculed in web series ‘Tandav’, the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting on Sunday (17th January) sought an explanation from streaming platform Amazon Prime Video on the issue. “The ministry has taken cognizance of the matter (complaints) and asked Amazon Prime Video to explain,” a source in the ministry said. ‘Tandav’, starring actors Saif Ali Khan, Dimple Kapadia, Sunil Grover, Tigmanshu Dhulia, Dino Morea, Kumud Mishra, Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub, Gauhar Khan and Kritika Kamra, premiered on the streaming platform Amazon Prime last month. Significantly, last month the Supreme Court, while observing that “You Cannot Hurt Religious Sentiments”, issued notices on a plea filed by the Director, Producer, Writer and Actor of the web series Tandav seeking for clubbing and transferring of criminal proceedings which have been initiated against them in various cities for allegedly hurting religious sentiments. A Bench comprising of Justices Ashok Bhushan, R. Subhash Reddy and MR Shah refused to grant any interim protection to the accused persons apprehending arrest from Police departments of six states.
