The call to pray – from Holy Week and through the Easter season – is being backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. The Archbishop of Burundi, Bernard Ntahoturi, has said that the local church has been strengthened by the prayers of Anglicans and other Christians.The situation in Burundi is deeply concerning and remains tense and unpredictable despite high level visits to mediate a settlement to the current political crisis.Both Archbishop Bernard Ntahoturi of the Province of the Anglican Church of Burundi and Archbishop Justin Welby have stressed the importance of prayer for the countryArchbishop Justin says: “Following my recent visit to Burundi I encourage churches and individuals urgently to pray for the deeply troubled nation of Burundi. Pray for its political, church and civic leaders. Cry to the God of all nations and peoples for its peace and the well-being of all its people.”Please join the Church in Burundi in prayer through the Easter season to ask God for an end of violence, a return to real peace and a political solution that will last and be the foundation for the development of one of the poorest nations in the world.Background and activities of the ChurchThe Anglican Church in Burundi (EAB) is an impartial actor in the present crisis that remains a political rather than an ethnic conflict.The situation throughout the country remains tense with much uncertainty about the direction the crisis will take. Although the capital Bujumbura appears calmer, disturbances still occur. People are living daily in a climate of fear and mistrust. Arrests continue and people are found killed. Targeted killings and attacks still occur.Amid the problems life goes on with people going to work, shopping, supporting their families, educating their children, going to Church, engaging in ceremonies.However, due to the insecurity those internally displaced remain so with the result that considerable strain is put on families to provide food and shelter. People are continuing to seek ways to leave the country but movement is not easy and often restricted.Suspension of direct financial support to the Burundi administration will inevitably have a negative impact on the economy. Already, for example students who are ready to enter university have had their support removed.Since the membership of the Church includes those on all sides of the political spectrum and of all ethnic groups, the EAB has the opportunity to play a key role in bringing peace and reconciliation locally and nationally and to share Christ’s love in turbulent times.Through its parish networks the EAB has the unique ability to identify need at grass roots level and to respond with humanitarian support. It has been reaching out in practical ways to the most vulnerable since the start of the crisis and has continued with all aspects of its ministry throughout the country.A Prayer for BurundiFor the beautiful but poor country of Burundi, we pray dear Lord. For the population living in fear and dread, afraid of the unknown and the uncertain, we ask for hope. For those fleeing in Burundi or abroad, we pray for safety, freedom from disease and famine and the security that they may return home. For those seeking the way of violence that they would instead seek reconciliation between all parties.For the surrounding countries that they may remain at peace, act justly and broker a just settlement.Enable an end to violence so that Burundi may become a beacon of peace rather than a place of fear and death. Strengthen your church to stand for the ways of justice and righteousness and to reach out in love to the suffering.We ask these things in the name of Him who carried all our human failings on the cross, Jesus Christ our Lord.AmenClick here to download a prayer poster which can be displayed in churches and chapels (pdf).

Wales still on course for Grand Slam following victory over Italy

first_imgSunday Mar 11, 2012 Wales still on course for Grand Slam following victory over Italy Wales are still on track for a Six Nations title following a comfortable 24-3 win over determined Italy at the Millennium Stadium on Saturday. If they beat France next weekend, they will pick up their third Grand Slam in eight years. It was a slow first half as Italy frustrated the hosts, who went into the break at just six points up at 9-3, following penalties exchanged by Leigh Halfpenny and Mirco Bergamasco.Two tries followed in the second period, one by Jamie Roberts as he split the defence to run 50 meters untouched, and the other a later effort from winger, and Man of the Match, Alex Cuthbert.Halfpenny was yellow carded for taking out Sergio Parisse in the air, although it looked as though it may have been a harsh call. Welsh coach Warren Gatland felt that his side didn’t get the rub of the green throughout, criticising referee George Clancy’s handling of the breakdown.“I thought there was a lot of intent by us but it was a bit frustrating because the flow of the game was not there. We were not allowed to get quick ball and the breakdown was a bit of a mess. We will take the win but if a team has that much possession and territory and loses the penalty count 13-12 you have got to be frustrated about that.“We weren’t allowed to get the momentum going. It’s probably just about trying to get the message through to referees, let’s be positive to the team that is trying to play positively and let’s reward them for that. I don’t think everything has to be 100 per cent to the letter of the law because there is so much interpretation.“That’s why I am personally pretty frustrated because it was difficult for us,” Gatland added.Italy coach Jaques Brunel, who took over from Nick Mallett, was positive despite the loss. He was pleased with his team’s defensive effort against a ‘very powerful Welsh side’.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Operation “Cast lead”: news control as a military objective

first_img“The United Nations should demand to take part in these investigations and non-governmental organisations should also be involved. Reporters Without Borders now expresses its wish to contribute to this independently. Other investigations carried out by the Israeli Army in the past into the deaths of journalists or bombing of media have had highly reprehensible results, in the process exonerating soldiers of all responsibility”, writes the organisation in concluding its report. Reporters Without Borders believes that, since the launch of the second Intifada in September 2000, the number of journalists killed has reached seven and more than 100 were wounded. Reporters Without Borders maintains that the closing of the Gaza Strip to the press constituted a serious and unacceptable violation of press freedom. On this too, the organisation strongly urges the United Nations to adopt a resolution immediately calling on Israel to stop using such coercive methods to control news. The organisation proposes that, with the agreement of the Israeli authorities, press equipment should be sent to the Gaza Strip. This equipment is today sadly lacking: film cameras, tapes, cameras, editing equipment, generators were all damaged or destroyed. Since Israel controls all goods that get into the Gaza Strip, Reporters Without Borders calls on the state of Israel to show discretion in its control of equipment entering the Gaza Strip. Equipment that is essential to the press should benefit from the same conditions as humanitarian supplies.

But news was another casualty of this war. The sealing off of the Gaza Strip, which was the full responsibility of the Israeli authorities, is unacceptable and disturbing. Beyond this conflict, control of news in time of war has become a military objective throughout the world. Now it has become the norm”, said Reporters Without Borders, as it released its report on violations of press freedom during the Israeli military offensive in the Gaza Strip, in January 2009.“Hamas is also responsible for serious press freedom violations. Contrary to what its leaders say, journalists are not free to criticise the Islamist movement, to communicate the stance of other factions or simply to set forth divergent opinions. Most journalists who spoke to Reporters Without Borders in Gaza share this point if view, but none of them can express themselves publicly, so great is the risk of reprisals,” stressed the organisation, which has recorded 28 journalists arrested by Hamas forces for their political opinions, since it took control of Gaza in June 2007. Reporters Without Borders went to Israel and the Gaza Strip at the end of January to establish a tally of press freedom violations during this conflict. After investigating on the spot, Reporters Without Borders puts at six the number of journalists who were killed, two of them while doing their job. Around 15 were wounded. And at least three buildings housing media were hit by Israeli fire. In the report, Reporters Without Borders strongly condemns all attacks carried out by the Israeli Army against buildings housing Palestinian or foreign media and calls on the Israeli Army and government to rapidly provide detailed explanations for hits on these buildings.

The company announced that moving forward, the report would be biannual. So, how accurate were they in terms of predicting how home prices would grow over a 12-month period?In core based statistical areas (CBSAs) like Phoenix-Mesa-Scottsdale, AZ, very. In this market CoreLogic forecasted that the area would experience a 6.2 percent increase in home prices in 12 months, while the area actually jumped 6.6 percent.Other accurately predicted CBSAs included Indianapolis-Carmel-Anderson, IN and Washington-Arlington-Alexandria, DC-VA-MD-WV (both with only a 0.5 percent difference) and Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater, Florida and St. Louis, MO-IL (both with only a 0.6 percent difference).Nationally, CoreLogic accurately predicted the path home prices would take as well. In June 2016, the company predicted a national price increase of 5.4 percent, and reported an actual price increase of 6.1 percent as of June 2017 (a 0.7 percent difference).“Our clients leverage the CoreLogic HPI Forecasts to price portfolios, conduct stress testing, allocate cash reserves and conduct a host of other critical business functions,” said Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief economist for CoreLogic. “With the introduction of the biannual HPI Forecast Validation Report, users can now get specific insight into the degree of accuracy of our HPI forecasts at the national and CBSA levels.”The area that reported the largest gap between forecast and reality was the CBSA of Seattle-Bellevue-Everett, WA with overestimated prices by 8.4 percent.

Diversity and distribution patterns in high southern latitude sponges

first_imgSponges play a key role in Antarctic marine benthic community structure and dynamics and are often a dominantcomponent of many Southern Ocean benthic communities. Understanding the drivers of sponge distribution in Antarctica enables us to understand many of general benthic biodiversity patterns in the region. The sponges of the Antarctic and neighbouring oceanographic regions were assessed for species richness and biogeographic patterns using over 8,800 distribution records. Species-rich regions include the Antarctic Peninsula, South Shetland Islands, South Georgia, Eastern Weddell Sea, Kerguelen Plateau, Falkland Islands and north New Zealand. Sampling intensity varied greatly within the study area, with sampling hotspots found at the Antarctic Peninsula, South Georgia, north New Zealand and Tierra del Fuego, with limited sampling in the Bellingshausen and Amundsen seas in the Southern Ocean. In contrast to previous studies we foundthat eurybathy and circumpolar distributions are important but not dominant characteristics in Antarctic sponges. Overall Antarctic sponge species endemism is ,43%, with a higher level for the class Hexactinellida (68%). Endemism levels are lower than previous estimates, but still indicate the importance of the Polar Front in isolating the Southern Ocean fauna. Nineteen distinct sponge distribution patterns were found, ranging from regional endemics to cosmopolitan species. A single, distinct Antarctic demosponge fauna is found to encompass all areas within the Polar Front, and the sub-Antarctic regions of the Kerguelen Plateau and Macquarie Island. Biogeographical analyses indicate stronger faunal links between Antarctica and South America, with little evidence of links between Antarctica and South Africa, Southern Australia or New Zealand. We conclude that the biogeographic and species distribution patterns observed are largely driven by the AntarcticCircumpolar Current and the timing of past continent connectivity.last_img read more

JMSDF ships train with Spanish frigate in Gulf of Aden
