Foto de Philippe Wojazer REUTERS.[Episcopal News Service] En diciembre pasado, acompañé a la deana de la catedral episcopal de la Santa Trinidad, en París, la Muy Rda. Lucinda Laird, y a un grupo de voluntarios de la catedral a visitar al campamentos de migrantes en Calais, conocido como “La Jungla”, o la mayor villamiseria de Francia.En francés, villamiseria se llama “bidonville” deriva de los bidones de gasolina que alguna vez solían llevarse en la parte trasera de los jeeps de la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Una vez que los desechaban, [había gente que] los cortaban y con ellos fabricaban viviendas, junto con tablas, telas, planchas de plástico para los techos y cosas por el estilo. Hay muchos términos para describir esto. Una aglomeración de estos bidones se convierte en la “villa”, En otras palabras, un bidonville es un zona de tugurios fundada en las orillas de las ciudades. Hay muchos términos para llamar a estos pueblos hechos de desechos: favelas en Brasil, colonias populares en México, villamiserias en Argentina, poblaciones callampas en Chile, umjondolo (chabolas) en Sudáfrica, shammasas en Sudán, iskwaters en las Filipinas. Las villamiserias son ubicuas.Mientras caminaba a través del campamento de Calais ese día en medio de una lluvia torrencial, resbalando en el lodo gris, me acordaba de otros campamentos que había visitado y que habían sido enteramente creados por personas que se agrupaban. Los clásicos campamentos de refugiados que uno visita y que son construidos por gobiernos o por la ONU (tales como los que se preparan para recibir a las personas que huyen de Mosul) tienen un trazado lógico, como los campamentos militares de las legiones romanas. Las villamiserias, por el contrario, son orgánicas, por así decir. Se desarrollan a partir de la necesidad y se convierten en pequeñas ciudades, en pequeñas comunidades. Las ciudades de tiendas de Puerto Príncipe, en Haití, me vienen a la mente. Recuerdo haber visitado estas comunidades de tiendas después del terremoto de 2010. Estaban notablemente bien organizadas, confundiendo a los expertos en economía que había acudido a asesorar al gobierno.Una vista muestra los restos calcinados de improvisados albergues y tiendas en “La Jungla” al tercer día de la evacuación de migrantes y de su traslado a centros de acogida en distintos lugares de Francia, como parte del desmantelamiento del campamento de Calais, Francia, 26 de octubre. Foto de Pascal Rossignol/REUTERS.La jungla no era diferente, excepto que la población cambiaba continuamente. Tan mala como puede ser la vida en una villamiseria, esto era peor, porque tan pronto la gente se instalaba, tenía que irse. El caos que esto causaba se complicaba por los esfuerzos del Reino Unido de no darles entrada, porque toda esta gente estaba en Calais al objeto de cruzar el canal de La Mancha. En otras palabras, estaban en Francia ilegalmente, puesto que los solicitantes de asilo deben ir al país en el que buscan asilo. Una curiosidad es que el R.U. tiene, en alguna medida, soberanía sobre Calais, luego del Tratado de Touquet con Francia de 2002 adjunto a la utilización del túnel del Canal (también le da a Francia derechos en Dover, pero no hay problemas de migrantes allí). Vi kilómetros de costosas cercas de alta tecnología rematadas por relumbrantes alambres de púas, como una prisión, pagadas por el R.U.Y al igual que una prisión, La Jungla está rodeada por la policía nacional fuertemente armada, rudos agentes que regularmente se enfrentan con manifestantes en las calles de las ciudades francesas. Ellos intervienen regularmente en las peleas que surgen, o en lo incendios que accidental o deliberadamente se producen. Desde luego, estos improvisados habitáculos son muy inflamables, convirtiéndose fácilmente en una intensa llamarada.Ahora están desapareciendo, el gobierno francés ha decidido erradicar La Jungla para siempre. Mientras escribo esto, millares de personas están siendo trasladadas en autobuses por toda Francia. Van en pequeños grupos a los nuevos “centros de acogida y orientación”. El primer grupo de 10 se reportó que los habían dejado ayer en el pueblo de Chardonnay.Debido a mi experiencia como cofundador y presidente de la Asociación para ayudar a las Minorías del Oriente (Association d’entraide aux minorités d’Orient) [AEMO]— un ministerio de refugiados para personas amenazadas de muerte por razones de fe— soy muy consciente de lo que estos migrantes de Calais enfrentan ahora. En primer lugar, a uno se le concede “protección subsidiaria” durante dos años, lo cual incluye atención médica, un poco de dinero y un lugar para dormir, escuela para los niños y lecciones de francés. Luego uno tiene que presentar un caso para solicitar asilo político a la Oficina para la Protección de Refugiados y Apátridas (OFPRA). Te reúnes con un funcionario que escucha tu historia, usualmente a través de un intérprete, y luego algún tiempo después recibes la respuesta. Uno puede apelar una decisión negativa, y ocasionalmente se produce una revocación. La concesión de asilo significa comenzar una nueva vida, con un estipendio, un apartamento, atención médica, lecciones de francés, un permiso de trabajo y finalmente la nacionalidad francesa.Bomberos franceses trabajan cerca del incendio de albergues improvisados en “La Jungla” el tercer día de evacuación y traslado de migrantes a centros de recepción en Francia, como parte del desmantelamiento del campamento de Calais, Francia, 26 de octubre. Foto de Pascal Rossignol/REUTERS.Históricamente, Francia ha ocupado el primer o segundo lugar en el mundo entre las naciones que otorgan asilo. Algunas, como Arabia Saudita, no conceden ninguno. “La tierra del asilo” es una frase popular que describe a Francia, y muchos miles de personas se han beneficiado de ello durante décadas, hasta, en un momento, el escritor y activista político estadounidense Eldridge Cleaver. Pero los servicios de refugio se han extendido al máximo (AEMO ya no alberga a refugiados en los centros oficiales, los situamos con familias de acogida, que muy generosamente abren sus hogares a los refugiados por meses y meses). Con millares de ellos que quieren atravesar Francia para entrar en el R.U., el gobierno se ha visto atrapado en un dilema: ¿qué hacer con solicitantes ilegales de asilo que no pueden salir?El desmantelamiento de La Jungla se ha demorado mucho más del debido. Dejar entrar a menores en el R.U. a reunirse con sus familias ha tomado muchísimo más tiempo de lo que debía. Si bien la Iglesia de Inglaterra ha intentado cambiar la mentalidad de la gente —el arzobispo Justin Welby alberga a una familia de refugiados en el Palacio de Lambeth— la votación del Brexit ha hecho la acogida a los refugiados políticamente difícil. La política del temor en el R.U., combinada con la inercia del gobierno francés, ha resultado una calamidad hecha a medida para millares de personas que se quedaron en ese lodo frío y gris. ¿Qué será de ellos ahora que les ofrecen un lugar en un país que no quieren y que hasta ahora no les ha dado ninguna razón para quererlo? Los [británicos] que votaron por la “Salida” le dieron a los refugiados su respuesta: váyanse a cualquier parte menos aquí. Estos refugiados son las primeras bajas de la era de la “postverdad” en Gran Bretaña, donde hay vallas que mienten descaradamente anunciando la inminente llegada de 72 millones de turcos, aunque Turquía no está en la Unión Europea y ahora no tiene ninguna oportunidad de ingresar.Los héroes anónimos de la historia han sido los muchos abnegadísimos voluntarios y asociaciones que se empeñaron en mostrarles a los refugiados de La Jungla el rostro de la bondad, de la aceptación, de la acogida. Esto incluye a miembros de la catedral episcopal de París que han dado mucho movidos por la compasión. Enviamos camiones cargados de ropa, de calcetines, de mantas; hubo personas que apoyaron económicamente a las asociaciones locales con colectas. Reacondicionamos un autocaravana para convertirlo en una unidad de enfermería móvil. Los feligreses iban de visita y daban lo que podían. Muchos otros también se presentaron, trabajando incansablemente entre los residentes que cambiaban de continuo, enfrentándose a los elementos con ellos, construyendo albergues, proporcionándoles comidas y ropa y un oído receptivo. Es aleccionador el ser su obispo.Al tiempo que este capítulo de nuestros huéspedes concluye, y comienza otro nuevo e incierto, quiero decir que espero que los millares que subieron a los autobuses esta semana encuentren acogida en este país del tamaño de Texas. Espero que puedan encontrar alguna paz al final. AEMO ha reasentado 3.500 personas, trayéndoles de Irak a la seguridad de Francia, la mayoría cristianos, pero musulmanes también. Es un viaje difícil para cualquiera que lo haga con un visado, cuanto peor si no se tienen documentos.Pero me temo que la era de nuevas villamiserias pudiera estar empezando. ¿Cuándo terminará este masivo movimiento de gentes? Los pueblos envejecientes de Europa (con excepción de irlandeses y franceses) no pueden pagar las pensiones sin un nuevo influjo de obreros jóvenes. Los mil millones de africanos de hoy probablemente se convertirán en dos mil millones para 2050. Para no mencionar los millones de desesperados y coléricos en el Oriente Medio, en Paquistán y en la India y sí, en la China también. ¿Sabrá Occidente qué hacer? Y las iglesias de Occidente ¿tomarán la iniciativa o se esconderán? ¿Seremos las ovejas de la parábola de Jesús, que lo vieron entre los desgraciados y procuraron ayudarlo, o entre las cabras que rehusaron?— El Rvdmo.

Ruschak – Western Pennsylvania ConservancyText description provided by the architects. In Mill Run, Pennsylvania in the Bear Run Nature Reserve where a stream flows at 1298 feet above sea level and suddenly breaks to fall at 30 feet, Frank Lloyd Wright designed an extraordinary house known as Fallingwater that redefined the relationship between man, architecture, and nature. The house was built as a weekend home for owners Mr. Edgar Kaufmann, his wife, and their son, whom he developed a friendship with through their son who was studying at Wright’s school, the Taliesin Fellowship. Save this picture!Recommended ProductsDoorsLonghiDoor – HeadlineDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorFiber Cements / CementsApavisaTiles – Nanofusion 7.0WoodGustafsWood Veneered Wall & Ceiling PanelsThe waterfall had been the family’s retreat for fifteen years and when they commissioned Wright to design the house they envisioned one across from the waterfall, so that they could have it in their view. Instead, Wright integrated the design of the house with the waterfall itself, placing it right on top of it to make it a part of the Kaufmanns’ lives.Save this picture!Second Floor PlanWright’s admiration for Japanese architecture was important in his inspiration for this house, along with most of his work. Just like in Japanese architecture, Wright wanted to create harmony between man and nature, and his integration of the house with the waterfall was successful in doing so. Save this picture!© Lee SandsteadThe house was meant to compliment its site while still competing with the drama of the falls and their endless sounds of crashing water. The power of the falls is always felt, not visually but through sound, as the breaking water could constantly be heard throughout the entire house.Save this picture!Third Floor PlanWright revolved the design of the house around the fireplace, the hearth of the home which he considered to be the gathering place for the family. Here a rock cuts into the fireplace, physically bringing in the waterfall into the house. He also brings notice to this concept by dramatically extending the chimney upwards to make it the highest point on the exterior of the house.Save this picture!Guest First Floor PlanFallingwater consists of two parts: The main house of the clients which was built between 1936-1938, and the guest room which was completed in 1939. The original house contains simple rooms furnished by Wright himself, with an open living room and compact kitchen on the first floor, and three small bedrooms located on the second floor. The third floor was the location of the study and bedroom of Edgar Jr., the Kaufmann’s son.The rooms all relate towards the house’s natural surroundings, and the living room even has steps that lead directly into the water below. Save this picture!© Robert P. Ruschak – Western Pennsylvania ConservancyThe circulation through the house consists of dark, narrow passageways, intended this way so that people experience a feeling of compression when compared to that of expansion the closer they get to the outdoors. The ceilings of the rooms are low, reaching only up to 6’4″ in some places, in order to direct the eye horizontally to look outside. The beauty of these spaces is found in their extensions towards nature, done with long cantilevered terraces. Shooting out at a series of right angles, the terraces add an element of sculpture to the houses aside from their function.Save this picture!Guest Second Floor PlanThe terraces form a complex, overriding horizontal force with their protrusions that liberated space with their risen planes parallel to the ground. In order to support them, Wright worked with engineers Mendel Glickman and William Wesley Peters. Their solution was in the materials. Save this picture!Photo Credit: Keystone State PhotographerThe house took on “a definite masonry form” that related to the site, and for the terraces they decided on a reinforced-concrete structure. It was Wright’s first time working with concrete for residences and though at first he did not have much interest in the material, it had the flexibility to be cast into any shape, and when reinforced with steel it gained an extraordinary tensile strength.Save this picture!The exterior of Fallingwater enforces a strong horizontal pattern with the bricks and long terraces. The windows on the facade have also have a special condition where they open up at the corners, breaking the box of the house and opening it to the vast outdoors. Save this picture!The perfection of these details perfected the house itself, and even though the house tends to have structural problems that need constant maintenance due to its location, there is no question that Fallingwater, now a National Historic Landmark, is a work of genius. From its daring cantilevers to its corner window detail and constant sound of the waterfall, Fallingwater is the physical and spiritual occurence of man and architecture in harmony with nature.

Everything from timing of seed treatment, planting date, row spacing, plant population, planting depth, tillage practices and nutrient management are factored into Optimum AQUAmax hybrid management recommendations. This approach ensures hybrids perform well in each unique growing environment using management tools and resources available. Seed Consultants, Inc. is releasing two new Supreme EX ® brand Optimum® AQUAmax™ hybrids for drought-stressed environments for 2013.  Optimum AQUAmax hybrids offer growers additional choices to help minimize risk and maximize their productivity and profitability on every acre by delivering a yield advantage in water-limited environments and offering top-end yield potential under more favorable growing conditions. By Gary Truitt – May 29, 2012 Seed Consultants, Inc. Releases Two New Products for Drought-Stressed Environments According to Stuart Yensel, Director of Sales & Marketing for Seed Consultants, “Our new Optimum AQUAmax hybrids will allow our growers to become more profitable on their drought prone and variable soils. These hybrids have the potential to make unproductive ground much more profitable by providing stress protections in times of severe drought.”  Optimum AQUAmax hybrids are equipped with strong agronomics and the latest technology package.

In the first inning, Evan Skoug knocked one out of the park with a runner on base and Cam Warner soon followed with a two-run double.Taking advantage of a pair of Rice errors, the Frogs were able to have six players make their rounds on the bases in the second. Elliott Barzilli put one in play just over the third baseman, which kick-started the rally. RBIs by Josh Watson, Cam Warner and Ryan Merrill gave TCU a very comfortable 10-0 lead after two innings.Rice was able to get on the board with a solo home run in the third off freshman pitcher Jake Eissler. Eissler picked up the win in relief, allowing only one run on four hits in 2 ⅓ innings. Eissler came in after starting pitcher Mitchell Traver had only seen three batters. TCU head coach Jim Schlossnagle said Traver felt some discomfort in his back.Traver missed the majority of the 2016 season due to a muscle strain in his back. When he felt discomfort once again after just two outs, he signaled to the bench to be taken out of the game.With such a young bullpen, the Frogs put multiple freshmen on the mound in relief. TCU used seven pitchers, with four true and one red-shirt freshman pitching for at least one inning in the win over the Owls.Austen Wade tallied his second home run of the season by hitting an opposite field home run to lead the fifth inning. Wade extended his hitting streak to seven games and has reached base safely in all but one game the Frogs have played.Another Watson RBI on a two-out single in the seventh gave TCU their 13th and final run of the game.In the top of the eighth Rice squeezed in four runs off of Trey Morris, but it was not enough to combat TCU’s quick start in the first two innings of the game.The next stop for the Horned Frogs is Houston, Texas for the Shriner’s Hospital for Children College Classic at Minute Maid Park. The No. 1 Frogs (7-1) are on the front end of what are likely to be several tough contests as they face No. 4 LSU (8-1) on Friday at 7:05 p.m. before taking on No. 15 Texas A&M Saturday and No. 11 Ole Miss on Sunday.

George Vigo, a contributor to Union of Catholic Asian News (UCAN), and his wife, Macel Alave-Vigo, the presenter of a programme on radio dxND, were gunned down near their home in Kidapawan on the southern island of Mindanao.“The Philippines is one of the most dangerous countries in the world for journalists,” the press freedom organisation said. “We call on the police to deploy all the necessary resources to identify and punish those responsible for these murders. We also urge the authorities to give journalists better protection.”In four other murders this year in the Philippines, the most probable motive seems to have been the victims’ journalistic work.Two gunmen on a motorcycle shot Vigo and Alave-Vigo as they were returning home. The victims were rushed to Kidapawan hospital where they died of their gunshot injuries. The Philippines National Police has begun an investigation. Relatives of the couple said they did not seem to have any enemies. Kidapawan police chief Danny Reyes said the police had not yet been able to determine the motive for the killings.Vigo, who worked for an NGO that helped displaced families, wrote frequently for local newspapers and UCAN, a Catholic news agency. He also presented a programme for young people, “Tingog sa Kabatan-unan” (Youth Voice), on radio dxND. Alave-Vigo hosted a weekly programme, “Kalihukan sa Kongreso” (Congress Affairs), on the same station, and worked for congressional representative Emmylou Taliño-Santos.The couple helped create the Federation of Reporters for Empowerment and Equality (FREE) and were human rights activists. They left four children, aged 20, 13, 9 and 7. News Organisation Newslast_img read more

Consumer Confidence Reverses Negative Course

Previous: Supreme Court Rejects Banks’ Request to Review FDIC Suit Next: Yellen is Dovish on Future Rate Hikes March 29, 2016 975 Views Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Share Save The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago After plummeting in February due to a slow economic start to the year, consumer confidence turned in the other direction for March, according to data released by the Conference Board on Tuesday.Whereas pessimism among consumers reigned in February’s report, March’s data showed signs that attitudes toward the economy are slowly improving after enduring such headwinds to start the year as lingering effects of the strong dollar and low oil prices. The Conference Board’s Consumer Confidence Index increased up to 96.2 (1985=100) in March from February’s reading of 94.0 and the Consumer Expectations Index jumped from 79.9 to 84.7 over-the-month in March.“Consumer confidence increased in March, after declining in February,” said Lynn Franco, Director of Economic Indicators at The Conference Board. “Consumers’ assessment of current conditions posted a moderate decline, while expectations regarding the short-term turned more favorable as last month’s turmoil in the financial markets appears to have abated. On balance, consumers do not foresee the economy gaining any significant momentum in the near-term, nor do they see it worsening.”The share of consumers expecting business conditions to improve in the next six months rose from 14.5 in February to 15.0 percent in March while the percentage expecting business conditions to get worse over the same period declined from 11.6 percent to 9.2 percent, according to the Conference Board.“On balance, consumers do not foresee the economy gaining any significant momentum in the near-term, nor do they see it worsening.”Lynn Franco, The Conference BoardThe labor market situation also improved in February as 242,000 jobs were added during the month following January’s disappointment, and the unemployment rate stayed below 5 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. In the Conference Board data, consumer outlook for the labor market experienced a corresponding increase. The share of consumers anticipating more jobs in the next six months ticked up from 12.2 percent to 2.9 percent from February to March while the share of consumers who expect fewer jobs declined slightly from 17.7 to 17.2 percent. The share of consumers who expect their income to increase in the next six months inched up from 11.6 in February to 11.8 percent in March.The Conference Board’s Present Situation Index dropped slightly from February to March, from 115.0 to 113.5, as the share of consumers who said they believe that business conditions are “good” declined from 26.0 percent down to 24.9 percent.In Fannie Mae’s March Economic Outlook, analysts noted the factors that have created a drag on the U.S. economy such as “weakness in net exports and oil-related nonresidential investment as well as the ongoing inventory correction process after unsustainable accumulations during the first half of 2015.” At the same time, they pointed out that the positives in the economy such as strengthening domestic consumer and business spending and a healthy labor market, should outweigh those negative factors.Fannie Mae’s report noted that stocks have recovered from February lows to near their highest level this year, credit spreads have narrowed, and oil prices have climbed. Meanwhile, the economy gained some footing after a fourth quarter slowdown during which real gross domestic product (GDP) grew at an annualized rate of just 1.4 percent. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Consumer Confidence Labor Market U.S. Economy Home / Daily Dose / Consumer Confidence Reverses Negative Course About Author: Brian Honea Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Consumer Confidence Reverses Negative Course Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Brian Honea’s writing and editing career spans nearly two decades across many forms of media.
