Canónigo Brian Grieves, ex director del ministerio de paz y justicia de la Iglesia Episcopal y quien formó parte del personal de tres obispos primados, incluido Browning.“Motivado por la compasión, él orientó a la Iglesia Episcopal por un rumbo que le permitiría a los homosexuales, hombres y mujeres, salir del armario y servir abiertamente en la Iglesia”, dijo Grieves a ENS desde su hogar en Hawái, donde Browning sirvió como obispo diocesano antes de convertirse en obispo primado.En su primera conferencia de prensa después de su elección como obispo primado en septiembre de 1985, a Browning le preguntaron sobre una resolución de la Convención General que intentaba claramente impedir que los homosexuales fuesen ordenados, recordaba Grieves. “Él respondió diciendo que no creía que la Iglesia debería legislar contra las personas”.En 1988, en su primera Convención General como obispo primado, acogió con beneplácito una exposición de la manta de retazos del SIDA, y retó a todos los obispos a establecer una relación personal con alguien que estuviera viviendo con SIDA, para lo cual él mismo dio el ejemplo. “Hasta entonces, las personas con SIDA habían sido en gran medida excluidas e ignoradas”, apuntó Grieves.Bruce Garner, presidente del grupo de promoción LGBT Integrity USA y ex miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo proveniente de la Diócesis de Atlanta, dijo que la Iglesia Episcopal había perdido a uno de sus gigantes.Durante los primeros años de la década del 90, cuando Garner desempeñó su primer período como presidente de Integrity, recordaba la reunión que sostuvo con Browning y elogió la apertura con la que él abordó el tema de la plena inclusión de las personas LGBT en la vida de la Iglesia.“Yo sería el primer presidente de Integrity en reunirse con un obispo primado. Estaba un poco nervioso, pero no necesitaba haberlo estado. El obispo Browning me acogió con su aura de cariño y se sentó conmigo en un sofá de su oficina mientras hablábamos”, afirmó. “Otro primer paso y prueba de su visión de que no hubiese marginados fue el aceptar ser nuestro orador e invitado en nuestra próxima convención de Integrity. Cuando él dijo desde el púlpito… que no le importaba lo que pensara la prensa, tuvimos un atisbo de su apasionado apoyo por nosotros y de su renuencia a que fuésemos marginados por la Iglesia”.El arzobispo Francisco de Assis da Silva, primado de la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil, dijo que Browning dejó “un valioso legado teológico pastoral a la Comunión Anglicana al conducir con seguridad a la Iglesia más allá de las lindes de tantísimos tabúes y difíciles problemas. De una manera generosa y práctica él tendió puentes con iglesias hermanas, en un gesto efectivo de lo que se ha llamado ‘Asociados en Misión’”.Assis dijo estarle agradecido a Browning por haber acercado aún más las dos provincias —que tenían relaciones históricas que se remontaban a 1890—, en particular luego de los apuros que experimentó la Iglesia Episcopal Anglicana del Brasil desde que la Iglesia Episcopal le otorgara la autonomía en 1965.“El obispo Browning y el ex primado [brasileño] Dom Olavo Ventura Luiz iniciaron un nuevo movimiento en las relaciones entre nuestras iglesias, las cuales habían estado inactivas durante algún tiempo, y las iglesias, madre e hija, reconstruyeron sus relaciones afectivas e históricas”, dijo Assis. “Queremos expresar nuestra gratitud por la vida y el ministerio del obispo Edmond Browning, ¡que fue verdaderamente un ‘pastor de las ovejas’ alentando y apoyando a todos los bautizados en sus ministerios y dones!”.Browning hizo historia al consagrar a la Rda. Barbara Harris, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts, como la primera obispa de la Iglesia Episcopal y de la Comunión Anglicana.“La noche antes de que él impusiera las manos sobre la cabeza de Barbara Harris y la ordenara como primera obispa, conmovió a una asamblea al decir: ¡‘estas manos están prestas’!”, recordaba Grieves.Browning también será recordado por haber alertado a la Iglesia Episcopal de la injusticia de la ocupación israelí del pueblo palestino, una causa que su esposa Patti también abrazó con visitas anuales a Tierra Santa, dijo Grieves.Cada uno de los tres obispos primados que sucedieron a Browning —Frank Griswold, Katharine Jefferts Schori y Michael Curry— rindieron tributos a su vida y ministerio en un comunicado de prensa de la Oficina de Relaciones Públicas de la Iglesia Episcopal.“La Iglesia Episcopal busca fielmente llegar a ser en verdad ‘una casa de oración para todos los pueblos’, como dijera Jesús citando a los profetas hebreos, y ese es notablemente el caso porque el obispo Browning nos enseñó que la Iglesia debe ser un lugar donde no haya marginados”, dijo Curry, el 27º. obispo primado, en el comunicado de prensa. “Ese legado perdurable aún sigue ayudando a liberar a muchos cautivos. Es prueba de que Dios no ha terminado todavía con nosotros, porque cada cierto tiempo andan entre nosotros gigantes espirituales como recordatorios vivientes”.Muchas condolencias y tributos se divulgaron en las redes sociales, entre ellos del Rvdmo. George Packard, primer obispo sufragáneo para las Fuerzas Armadas y los ministerios federales, quien describió a Browning como “constante y fiel, él nos condujo hacia donde no había barreras, incluso cuando dudábamos y carecíamos de su coraje y de su amor”.El Rvdmo. Steven Charleston, ex funcionario del personal para el Ministerio Nativoamericano y obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Alaska de 1991 a 1996 y más tarde decano de la Escuela Episcopal de Teología, llamó a Browning “una persona verdaderamente santa, llena de visión y de valor”.Browning había trabajado para expandir los ministerios de la Iglesia con los nativoamericanos, para lo cual creó un innovador comité nacional compuesto en su totalidad de miembros indígenas de la Iglesia.Owanah Anderson de la nación choctaw y funcionaria indígena de la Iglesia Episcopal en el equipo de Browning, dijo al enterarse de su muerte: “el obispo Browning fue el mejor amigo que mi gente jamás tuviera”.Grieves apuntaba: “Eso probablemente resume el sentimiento de la mayoría de las personas de la Iglesia que tuvieron la buena fortuna de conocerlo”.Browning “inspiró a una generación de nosotros como sacerdote misionero, obispo internacional y obispo primado”, dijo el Rvdmo. Christopher Epting, antiguo obispo de Iowa que sirvió en el Consejo Ejecutivo con Browning durante tres años. “Cuando él presidió en mi consagración, mi única oración fue seguir sus huellas. Su contribución a esta Iglesia, y a la causa de Cristo, es incalculable. Que su descanso sea hoy en el Paraíso de Dios”.Garner, de Integrity, dijo que Browning “descansa ahora en el seno del Dios que lo creó, lo redimió y lo sostuvo a lo largo de un ministerio largo y productivo. “Ya él ha escuchado las palabras ‘bien, buen siervo y fiel’. Que descanse en paz y resucite en gloria. Que reflexionemos sobre nuestra pérdida mientras celebramos un ministerio del cual recibimos innumerables beneficios”.El obituario oficial, escrito por Sheryl Kujawa Holbrook, autora de Alma de pastor, vida de Edmond Lee Browning [Heart of a Pastor, A Life of Edmond Lee Browning] puede encontrarse aquí.ENS ha recogido tributos y obituarios en memoria del obispo Edmond Lee Browning aquí.— Matthew Davies es redactor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Several million people have made their way to Europe in recent years fleeing persecution and conflict in their homelands. More than half of them come from Syria, Afghanistan and Iraq, according to figures from the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Some are trying to reach Britain, leading to the creation of an ad-hoc refugee camp known as the Jungle in the northern French port of Calais.The “verbatim” play, “Still Here” is based on the experiences of an Eritrean refugee. It was written by the artistic director of Theatre for Justice, Bristol Old Vic Theatre School student Rachel Partington, drawing on interviews conducted in the Jungle in December 2015. The play documents the man’s journey as he fled persecution for his faith, and the journey of the British woman who interviewed him.Full article.

PDP London’s Hong Kong Studio was appointed as design and interior architects for two executive houses on the south side of Lantau Island, in close proximity to Cheung Sha beach. Sitting at just under 20 metres above sea level and right on the coast line, the houses offer fabulous, unobstructed views over the South China Sea.Save this picture!Garden. Image © Eiichi KanoThe ‘floating box’ concept defines the architecture of the two executive houses. Resting on linear, natural stone walls, the upper floor volumes focus the bedrooms on the view over the water. On the ground floor, large sliding doors connect the interiors with the exterior. The deck extends from the outdoor pool to the indoor living and dining areas, blurring the boundaries. The frameless corner sliding doors in the main living area and the slender round column that supports the upper floor volumes enhance the open and light design of the ground floor spaces. A seemingly floating staircase, situated in a glass vertical volume, separates the volumes of the house. Being in the centre of the scheme, the staircase also forms the main point of entry into the house.Save this picture!Kitchen. Image © Eiichi KanoBoth houses feature multiple outdoor decks and infinity edge swimming pools overlooking the sea. Some of the decks are lowered to follow the contours of the site, and to minimise the impact to the surrounding environment. Each deck has its own unique qualities in terms of privacy, orientation and relation to the houses and pools. A large outdoor dining deck with built in BBQ facilities, overlooking the swimming pool, is located directly outside the main dining area of both houses.Save this picture!Bathroom.

Image © Eiichi KanoThe furniture and finishes provide the feel and quality of high-class beach resorts. The colour scheme ranges from the colours of the ocean to the warmth of natural wood tones. A selection of natural tones and fabrics are used for upholstery and curtains. Naturel dyed blue and yellow highlights are used for accents in fabric and cushions. The furniture selection and layout for both houses are the same, but fabrics differ slightly to give each house its unique character. The natural stone used throughout the project has a warm, natural tone and fossils. Natural oak wall panels are used for the kitchen and powder rooms areas. The same oak board are used for the upper floor finish.

Marvel’s “Doctor Strange” a spellbindingly good time

When he’s not working on student media’s newest podcasts, he can be found watching the latest releases at the closest theater. TCU VGP Video Finale (Ep. 25 – Call of Duty WWII, Cluster Trucks and more) Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ Chris Garcia print“Doctor Strange” Review from TCU Student Media on Vimeo.The newest entry in the already extensive Marvel Cinematic Universe, “Doctor Strange” serves as a strong origin story and a gateway for what’s to come while standing out amongst the multitude of Marvel films already released.The film follows Dr. Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) on his journey to learn the mystic arts from the secretive Ancient One (Tilda Swinton) and thwart the plans of the villainous Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen).The plot serves as a straightforward origin story. While a bit rushed, the film manages to effectively follow Strange’s journey and helps to build the beginning of his character arc rather than try to complete it in a short amount of time. “Strange” also has some well-done segments that help to subvert the “punch the way to victory” type of plot that Marvel has gotten used to.This image released by Disney shows Benedict Cumberbatch in a scene from Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.” ( Jay Maidment/Disney/Marvel via AP)The biggest problem with the plot is that there’s a lot to go through. It becomes apparent that while being an origin story, Strange is also setting up for future movies in Marvel’s “Phase 3”. This gives the audience little time to actually connect with the characters in the film and keeps the film from being as strong as it could have been.That said, “Strange” is one of the better solo films from Marvel, introducing new characters and another dimension to the already extensive cinematic universe. The action in “Strange” is also on par with the movies released so far. It is fun and visually interesting while having its own unique flair. This all makes “Strange” another strong entry in the Marvel franchise, even it if does feel a bit safe at times. The cast is strong, but Cumberbatch leads with a standout performance as Dr. Strange. He brings snark and a bit of playfulness to the Sorcerer Supreme. Chiwetel Ejiofor also gives a memorable performance as Strange’s mentor Baron Mordo.This leads to the biggest problem with “Strange”, however, which is relatively average characters. While the cast does a great job with what they have, almost everyone aside from Dr. Strange and Mordo feel somewhat underdeveloped. This is especially the case with Mikkelsen’s Kaecilius, whose backstory is stated outright in two sentences and ignored completely afterward, becoming yet another disappointing Marvel villain. While the biggest weakness in “Strange” is its characters, the film’s biggest strength lies in its incredible visuals. The film fully embraces the magic its characters use, using multiple dimensions, detailed magical symbols and “Inception”-esque world folding to create what is by far the most visually interesting Marvel movie to date. Even without the magic, the film looks great thanks to a combination of impressive cinematography and mind-bending shots.  Verdict:A fun and visually stunning journey into a new portion of the Marvel Universe, “Doctor Strange” is a magical experience that must be seen to be believed. 8/10center_img ReddIt Previous articleStudent admissions process changesNext articleTCU male student protests in front of Frog Fountain Chris Garcia RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TCU VGP (Ep. 24 – Battlefront Details, Telltale’s Guardians and more) Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/ This image released by Disney shows Benedict Cumberbatch in a scene from Marvel’s “Doctor Strange.” ( Jay Maidment/Disney/Marvel via AP) Twitter Twitter Facebook Sizzle Reel Finale (Ep. 24 – Teen Titans, Star Trek: Discovery and more) TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Linkedin Chris Garciahttps://www.tcu360.com/author/chris-garcia/last_img read more

Jaleel’s counsel additionally posited that no investigation as contemplated under the Act was conducted. Representing the State, State Attorney KV Sohan also made similar arguments.The complainant Muhammad Shafi, through his counsel Senior Advocate George Poonthottam pointed that there is no specific procedure is contemplated under the act for conducting investigation. Arguing that the lok ayukta proceeded with complete satisfaction that the complaint needed to be proceeded upon, it was averred that the Report under challenged ‘comprehensive’  and accordingly the complaint was admitted. The order was passed after perusing all the documents related to the issue and a impugned order is a comprehensive one considering all aspects, the Senior Counsel argued.After these submissions, the Court asked Jaleel’s counsel whether the Minister was still in office, to which the Counsel responded that the minister had already resigned.Refusing a stay on the operation of the Lok Ayukta Report, the Court proceeded to reserved the case for orders.Significantly, while the hearing was in progress, Jaleel tendered his resignation as State Minister to the Kerala Governor. Jaleel’s appeal primarily challenges Paragraph 54 of the said Report, wherein the Lok Ayukta comprising Justices Cyriac Joseph (former Supreme Court judge) and Harun-Ul-Rashid (former High Court judge) concluded that that Jaleel should not continue as a Member of the Council of Ministers on account of the charges against him. Charging the final report as one having been made without following any procedure mandated under law to arrive at a finding, Jaleel’s plea asserts that the same is violative of natural justice as well as the statutory provisions of the Kerala Lok Ayukta Act, and therefore one liable to be interfered with by the Court. Additionally, the plea argued that the subject matter of the proceedings, specifically, the prescription of qualification and appointment to the State Minority Development Finance Corporation, is excluded from the purview of the investigation under the Lok Ayukta Act.Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Alash performs throat music

first_img John Jinright, TAC presenter chair, said the Alash Ensemble performed at schools in Goshen and Brundidge Monday and will perform at several other schools in the county today and Wednesday.The general public will have the opportunity to hear the Alash Ensemble at 7 p.m. tonight at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University. Tickets are $20 and $5 for students and will be available at the door.“This is a rare opportunity to hear this kind of music,” Jinright said. “To the Tuvan ear, a perfectly pure sound is not as interesting as a sound that contains hums, buzzes or extra pitches that coexist with the main note being sung. Handmade Tuvian instruments are designed and played to produce multi-textured sounds as well.”The Alash concert will be a unique experience and everyone is invited.

It was amazing.”Deveridge said it was refreshing to listen to music in a different language and still find it so enjoyable. MESSENGER PHOTO/JAINE TREADWELLThe Alash Ensemble performed at the Troy Nutrition Center Monday morning and thrilled the senior adults with music they had never heard before, throat music. The ensemble will be in concert at 7 p.m. tonight at the Claudia Crosby Theater on the campus of Troy University. Pictured are ensemble members, Ayan-ool Sam and Ayan Shirizhik.The seniors at the Troy Nutrition Center heard music like they had never heard before when the Alash Ensemble of Tuva performed for them Monday.Throat singing was new to most all of the seniors but Alice Henderson, said she will never forget how beautiful the music was.“I’ll never get a chance to hear music like that again,” Henderson said. “I didn’t even know there was any music like that in the world.” Book Nook to reopen “We want to thank the Troy Arts Council for bringing the Alash Ensemble to the Troy Nutrition Center and allowing us to be so wonderfully entertained,” she said. “We probably would never have had an opportunity to hear music like that and we greatly appreciate it.”Throat singings is an ancient tradition that was developed among the nomadic herdsmen of Central Asia, people who lived in yurts, rode horses and raised yaks, sheep and camels and had a close spiritual relationship with nature. Singers use their voices to mimic and interact the sounds of the natural world that include whistling birds, bubbling streams, blowing wind and the deep growl of a camel.The ensemble sang a “country” song about horses and pretty women for the clients at the nutrition center.Although it wasn’t the kind country music that is familiar to the South, Mary Daniels said she loved it and was so proud to get a chance to hear a kind of music she had never heard before and might never hear again.

Foraging responses of Antarctic fur seals to changes in the marine environment

first_imgThis study examined the relative contribution of environmental variation and the seasonal demands of pup rearing on the foraging behaviour of female Antarctic fur seals Arctocephalus gazella at Bird Island, South Georgia (54°S, 38°W), during 3 austral summers (1994 to 1996). Time-depth recorders measured the diving behaviour of 72 individuals during a total of 385 foraging trips totalling 1964 d at sea. The frequencies of krill, fish and squid in the diet were estimated from prey items contained in scats. In 1996, a year of high krill abundance, females made shorter foraging trips, fewer dives and spent more time ashore than in 1994 when krill was scarce. Females fed exclusively on krill in 1996, and frequent shallow daytime diving indicated that krill were close to the surface during the day. In 1994 and 1995 deeper and longer-duration daytime dives were associated with a higher proportion of fish and squid in the diet. Foraging trip duration, ashore duration and dive frequency increased through the course of the 1995 and 1996 lactation seasons. Females, therefore, appeared to match pup demands by increasing both time feeding at sea and energy delivery to the pup on land. However, the importance of sea surface temperature and duration of night in multiple regression models suggested that physical factors were also important in explaining the seasonal pattern of fur seal foraging behaviour.last_img read more
