Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service — Salt Lake City] Kurt Barnes will remain the treasurer of the General Convention after the House of Bishops voted to re-elect him on June 30.A day earlier, the House of Deputies narrowly elected former Executive Council Member Del Glover, the only other nominee running against Barnes. Glover received 414 votes and Barnes received 400. From the bishops, Barnes received 102 votes and Glover received 48.In the event that the houses don’t concur on the election of the treasurer, the current incumbent retains his or her position.Barnes became treasurer of the Domestic and Foreign Missionary Society in 2004 and assumed the role of treasurer of the General Convention at the same time.Barnes’ career has spanned finance and investment in for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. Barnes has worked as a RAND Corporation economist, a Time Inc. corporate planner, an editor of Fortune Magazine, an Inco Limited finance officer, and with Morgan Stanley Asset Management. He has assisted Amnesty International in restructuring its financial management and investment committee.“I have a passion for efficiency and effectiveness in carrying out God’s mission, which means recognizing the fiduciary responsibility to work collaboratively for the entire church, without favoring individual groups, and while avoiding duplication of activities,” Barnes said in the Joint Standing Committee on Nominations’ report to convention. “I hope that with patience and the ability to explain complicated subjects simply, I can continue to serve the church in multiple roles.”Every regular meeting of the General Convention elects a treasurer who may also be treasurer of the Domestic & Foreign Missionary Society.

Drivelines Studios is a residential building in Johannesburg, SA. Located in Maboneng, an area of recent urban transformation and renewal, it responds to the post-apartheid generation’s desire to repopulate the city’s downtown through new models of urban living.Save this picture!© Dave SouthwoodSave this picture!Exploded isometricSave this picture!© Dave SouthwoodEmbracing the triangular geometry of the site, the building is conceived as a billboard where two separate volumes of residential units are hinged at the narrow east end of the lot, framing the social space of the open interior courtyard. As in a billboard, the building outer facades are straight and flush with the lot line while the facades in the inner courtyard are articulated by the staircases, the elevator tower and the bridges connecting all levels, and by the open circulation paths activated by the units spillover onto their outdoor space.Save this picture!© Dave SouthwoodThe building is modular and made of 140 upcycled shipping containers. Containers have been selected by colors to be left unpainted, with availability dictating the ultimate building color. They were stacked and cut on site, and combined to form the units. A large diagonal cut-out, from the corner to the center of each container long side, generates the large windows for the units on street and courtyard sides. Its repetition and mirroring generate the building façade pattern.Save this picture!© Dave SouthwoodThe ground level is occupied by residential at the rear, retail along the Albertina Sisulu Road, and the private courtyard for the residents with planted areas and a pool. The 6 levels above are occupied by the residential units, all open plan studios varying in size between 300sqft and 600sqft. All units include an outdoor space along the courtyard facing walkways.Save this picture!© Dave SouthwoodSave this picture!Typical floor planSave this picture!© Dave SouthwoodThe building’ social intention and agenda is in line with the emerging urban community of its surrounding neighborhood, taking an active role in the revitalization, reactivation and reimagining of the city downtown.Save this picture!© Dave SouthwoodProject gallerySee allShow lessTingbjerg Library and Culture House / CobeSelected ProjectsSIHORU / 100A associatesSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Johannesburg, South AfricaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Ivorian media’s slow death

first_img Reports The 2020 pandemic has challenged press freedom in Africa October 16, 2020 Find out more Côte d’IvoireAfrica Receive email alerts October 29, 2020 Find out more November 27, 2020 Find out more Follow the news on Côte d’Ivoire Help by sharing this information to go further RSF_en center_img February 23, 2011 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Ivorian media’s slow death News Reporters Without Borders is deeply concerned about the continuing deterioration in the climate for the media in Côte d’Ivoire. Harassed, threatened and exposed to physical violence, journalists are now finding it virtually impossible to work freely.The press freedom organization urges civil society and the two rival camps led by Laurent Gbagbo and Alassane Ouattara to respect freedom of expression and the right to news and information.All journalists, without exception, are the victims of this steady worsening in the political situation. Newspapers of all political sympathies are encountering great difficulty in operating. Journalists identified with the Gbagbo camp cannot visit and work in the north, centre and west, which are still controlled by the pro-Ouattara former rebels of the New Forces. The pro-Ouattara media are unwelcome in the Gbagbo-controlled south.Reporters and editors from four newspapers – Le Démocrate, Le Mandat, Nord Sud Quotidien and Le Nouveau Réveil – were questioned for several hours on 18 February by members of the criminal investigation police on the orders of state prosecutor Raymond Tchimou. Supervised by deputy prosecutor Mamadou Diakité, the interrogations were carried out in accordance with a report prepared by the prosecutor’s office entitled “Impact of the opposition press on Côte d’Ivoire’s post-electoral crisis.”The management of Horizon Média, the company that publishes the pro-Ouattara daily Le Mandat, said members of the Security Operations Command Centre (SECOS) attacked several of the newspaper’s employees as they were travelling to the printer’s on the evening of 18 February. As a result, the next day’s issue did not appear. The two journalists working for the pro-New Forces TV Notre Patrie who were arrested on arrival and Abidjan air base on 28 January – Sanogo Aboubakar (aka Abou Sanogo) and Kangbé Yayoro Charles Lopez (aka Gnahoré Charly) – have been incarcerated in the main Abidjan penitentiary on the orders of the Abidjan-Plateau state prosecutor .In a communiqué published on 18 February, the new president of the National Press Council (CNP), Deby Dalli Gbalawoulou, issued a stern warning to the national news media and threatened then with severe penalties. The Côte d’Ivoire Press Editors Group (GEPCI) has suspended its participation in the CNP’s new governing body.A driver employed by the Nord Sud Quotidien newspaper was kidnapped yesterday by gunmen travelling in an unmarked car. There is still no news of him.The CNP today imposed fines of 1 million CFA francs (1,525 euros) on two newspapers, Jour Plus and Le Nouveau Réveil, on the grounds that they had printed an article that defended violence.“We urge all the media not to stir up hatred and social tension in the fraught and sensitive climate currently prevailing in Côte d’Ivoire,” Reporters Without Borders secretary-general Jean-François Julliard said. “It is now more necessary than ever to act professionally and respect journalistic ethics. Propaganda journalism must be avoided at all costs to prevent serious abuses.” Threats against journalists in run-up to Côte d’Ivoire’s presidential election RSF’s recommendations for protecting press freedom during Côte d’Ivoire’s elections News News Organisation Côte d’IvoireAfrica last_img read more

Dodgers end pursuit of Hisashi Iwakuma, who signs with Mariners

first_imgNow the Dodgers are in the position of having to pick up the spare.For all the progress they made with Greinke and Iwakuma — and Jeff Samardzija, who reportedly received a formal offer from the Dodgers before signing with the Giants — the Dodgers haven’t added to their starting rotation since Brett Anderson accepted his qualifying offer on Nov. 13.That will certainly change by the time pitchers and catchers report to spring training in February. Behind ace left-hander Clayton Kershaw, the rotation is full of question marks. Can Anderson avoid the disabled list for two straight seasons for the first time in his career? Can Hyun-Jin Ryu return after missing all of 2015? When will Brandon McCarthy be able to return from Tommy John surgery? Where do Alex Wood and Mike Bolsinger fit in?That’s an unenviable list of questions for any team. It doesn’t help that the Dodgers’ division rivals have already loaded up on starting pitching. The Giants doubled down by signing Johnny Cueto to a six-year contract after locking up Samardzija for five years. The Diamondbacks have Greinke. Seattle Mariners general manager Jerry Dipoto announced Thursday night — at a company party, no less — that Hisashi Iwakuma will re-sign with the only major league team he’s ever pitched for.Earlier this month the Dodgers and Iwakuma agreed to terms on a three-year, $45 million contract that was pending a physical. Something changed after the Dodgers reviewed the physical, however, and the Mariners apparently wasted little time swooping in. Iwakuma’s contract is guaranteed for one year, with vesting options for 2017 and 2018 — far more conservative terms for a pitcher with a history of arm troubles. Speaking last week at the Winter Meetings, days after Zack Greinke signed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Dipoto said the Dodgers “just came in and threw a bowling ball into the alley” with their three-year offer. The Dodgers may be short on pitching, but they still have time. According to multiple reports Thursday, they have already engaged the Tampa Bay Rays in talks for right-handed pitcher Jake Odorizzi.Odorizzi, 25, comes with less injury risk than the 34-year-old Iwakuma, though he did miss time last season with a strained left oblique. Since joining the Rays’ rotation in 2014, Odorizzi has gone 20-22 with a 3.74 earned-run average.Odorizzi isn’t eligible for arbitration until 2017, so he’d cost less money than Iwakuma. The price in terms of prospects is unknown.The Dodgers bolstered their probable Triple-A rotation Wednesday by acquiring Frankie Montas from the Chicago White Sox — another possible trade chip in their arsenal.Right-hander Mike Leake, left-hander Scott Kazmir and right-hander Kenta Maeda headline the remaining free agent starters. Unlike Iwakuma, the Dodgers would not have to surrender a first-round draft pick to sign Leake, Kazmir or Maeda. Maeda, 27, was posted by his Japanese team last week. The teams who have paid the expected $20 million posting fee to negotiate with him are expected to be revealed soon.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
