China’s reserves pass $3 trillion

first_img whatsapp Share whatsapp CHINA’S foreign exchange reserves, the world’s biggest, hurtled past the $3 trillion (£1.8 trillion) mark in March, up 24.4 per cent over the last year, its central bank said yesterday. The reserves rose by $197bn (£120.6bn) in the first-quarter of 2011 and have now nearly tripled Japan’s holdings, the world’s second-biggest official currency reserves.Heavy criticism from the US and other governments is mounting around China, which is accused of distorting trade and the global economy.

Enter Your Email Address 2020 has turned out to be a disaster for many dividend investors. More than half of FTSE 100 companies alone have cut, suspended or axed shareholder payouts in response to the Covid-19 crisis. The threat of a painful and prolonged global economic downturn means that more UK shares could upend their dividend policies in the weeks and months (perhaps even years) ahead, too.That’s not to say that there are no longer top dividend stocks for you and I to buy, however. There remain plenty of top UK shares with great earnings visibility and strong balance sheets to choose from today. And the recent stock market crash means that many dividend yields have shot through the roof.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…2 great dividend buys after the crashWe at The Motley Fool believe that the 2020 stock market crash presents a brilliant investment opportunity. You and I can load up on high-quality UK shares at a lower price than they were trading at earlier in the year. I myself have taken the opportunity to go dip-buying and one of my recent ISA purchases is big-yielding Tritax Big Box.And there are several other great dividend-paying UK shares I’m thinking of buying today. Let me talk you through a couple of the income heroes on my watchlist:National Grid is a great pick given the storm (from Covid-19 and Brexit) approaching the UK economy. It has total control over the domestic power grid as well as in parts of the Eastern seaboard of the US. This provides it with supreme earnings visibility whatever the broader economic backdrop. Regulatory issues are always a worry for utilities plays. But this shouldn’t be a serious worry for the FTSE 100 firm until around 2025 when talk of possible renationalisation under Labour might resurface as the next general election comes around. This UK share carries a mighty 5.5% forward dividend yield at current prices.I’m sorely tempted to buy Chesnara in the wake of the stock market crash, too. At current prices the financial services giant sports a mighty 8% prospective dividend yield, but that is not all. Recent weakness means this UK share trades on an attractive price-to-earnings (P/E) ratio of 13 times. Chesnara buys life insurance funds closed to new customers from companies and manages them through to maturity. It’s not sexy but its business is stable, and this has underpinned more than a decade-and-a-half of annual dividend increases. It’s a perfect buy for these uncertain economic times, I feel.Getting rich with more top UK sharesChesnara and National Grid are just a couple of the big-dividend-paying UK shares I’m thinking of buying for my ISA. The list of top-quality stocks that are too good to miss after the stock market crash is vast. And The Motley Fool’s huge library of exclusive reports can help you find many more. So do some research and get investing today. Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Royston Wild owns shares of Tritax Big Box REIT. The Motley Fool UK has recommended Tritax Big Box REIT.

Foto Facebook/página de John Floberg.[Episcopal News Service] Los episcopales están codo con codo con otras personas que protestan en un esfuerzo creciente de las tribus nativoamericanas de evitar que una compañía petrolera construya un oleoducto principal a través del río Misurí en Dakota del Norte.Las protestas, que tuvieron éxito este mes en detener las obras en parte del oleoducto, se comparan a algunos de los acontecimientos más importantes de la historia de los indios norteamericanos, y la Diócesis [episcopal] de Dakota del Norte se ha solidarizado con la causa y el 19 de agosto emitió una declaración de apoyo a la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta [Standing Rock].El obispo primado Michael Curry dijo el 25 de agosto que apoya también los objetivos de la protesta, la cual, según la definió, “nos une en la lucha en pro de la justicia y la reconciliación raciales con la justicia climática y el cuidado por la creación de Dios como una cuestión de mayordomía”.“El pueblo de la reserva sioux de Roca Enhiesta nos llama ahora a solidarizarnos con los pueblos nativos, no sólo en beneficio suyo, sino por el bien de la creación de Dios, por el bien de toda la familia humana, y por los niños y las generaciones de niños que aún no han nacido,” dijo Curry en su declaración. “El legendario jefe sioux Toro Sentado nos recuerda: ‘Juntemos nuestras mentes y veamos la vida que podemos hacer para [beneficio de] nuestros hijos’”.“No es sólo un asunto de los nativos. No se trata sólo de un problema indio. Es un problema humano”, dijo el Rdo. Brandon Mauai, diácono episcopal de la reserva india de Roca Enhiesta.El arzobispo Fred Hiltz de la Iglesia Anglicana del Canadá y Mark MacDonald, obispo nacional anglicano de los pueblos indígenas, dijeron el 25 de agosto que el problema es también moral, y que “sólo hay una esperanza de que el problema moral pueda plantearse y ser oído”.Los que se oponen al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas [Dakota Access Pipeline] dicen que constituye una gran amenaza para el medioambiente y para el modo de vida de las personas que habitan en el entorno, y que extraen el agua del río Misurí para beber, entre ellos 8.000 miembros tribales de Roca Enhiesta. La compañía que construye el oleoducto, Energy Transfer Partners, y los que la apoyan arguyen que el oleoducto es seguro, económico y necesario para llevar petróleo de Dakota del Norte a mercados y refinerías a través del país.La tribu también está preocupada de que el oleoducto, que cruzará al borde de la reserva de 8.000 a 12.000 kilómetros cuadrados, pueda profanar suelo sagrado.Agentes de orden público se alinean el 15 de agosto a lo largo de una carretera en el condado de Morton, Dakota del Norte, para bloquear a manifestantes que se open al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakota que se extendería desde los yacimientos petrolíferos de Bakken en el noroeste de ese estado hasta Illinois. Foto del grupo opositor de Roca Enhiesta vía Facebook.Se pensaba que el problema llegaría a un primer plano esta semana con audiencias en los tribunales sobre el proyecto y las protestas. Sin embargo, los dictámenes se aplazaron hasta principios del próximo mes.Las congregaciones episcopales de la localidad no son sólo observadoras pasivas. Algunos miembros de la Iglesia se encuentran en primera línea, como parte de los que protestan o apoyando a los centenares —y a veces millares— de personas acampadas allí, y el asunto ha influido en los sermones dominicales, las oraciones e incluso las opciones de la liturgia.“Vemos nuestra obligación a través de la lente de nuestro pacto bautismal, de respetar la dignidad de todo ser humano”, dijo el Rdo. John Floberg.Floberg, misionero canónigo de la comunidad de la Iglesia Episcopal en la reserva de Roca Enhiesta, atiende tres congregaciones en la parte de la reserva en Dakota del Norte: San Lucas [St. Luke’s], en Fort Yates; Santiago Apóstol [St. James’], en Cannon Ball y la iglesia de la Cruz [Church of the Cross], en Selfridge. Y aunque él es blanco y no pertenece a la tribu, ha pasado 25 años ministrando aquí y está muy consciente del contexto histórico que se toma en cuenta, tanto en las protestas recientes como en la participación episcopal.Floberg es miembro del Consejo Ejecutivo de la Iglesia Episcopal y el período de Mauai en el Consejo terminó el año pasado.El comienzo del ministerio de la Iglesia Episcopal entre los sioux se remonta a mediados del siglo XIX, dijo Floberg, y destacó cómo la “política de paz” del presidente Grant de fines de la década del sesenta de ese siglo le asignó la supervisión de las reservas a denominaciones religiosas, la Iglesia Episcopal entre ellas.La historia de la interacción de los blancos con los pueblos nativos, sin embargo, ha estado marcada por la violencia, la opresión y las promesas incumplidas.Los líderes sioux de Roca Enhiesta, en su demanda legal contra el oleoducto, citan tratados de 1851 a 1868 al argüir que el gobierno de EE.UU. todavía no ha cumplido su parte de esos acuerdos. La reserva de Roca Enhiesta abarca ambos lados de la frontera entre Dakota del Norte y Dakota del Sur, y las tierras del tratado tribal se extienden al norte de la reserva, dicen ellos, hasta el sitio en que se construye el oleoducto.Algunos blancos que los apoyan se han unido a los indios norteamericanos en su protesta, pero Floberg dijo que el enfrentamiento también ha suscitado críticas racistas en algunos lugares, particularmente en comentarios que han aparecido en Facebook sobre el tema.Otra referencia histórica es el plan Pick-Sloan para el control de inundaciones de 1944, que conllevó la construcción de represas en el río Misurí. Esto creó el lago Oahe, que se extiende desde el sur de Bismarck, en Dakota del Norte, hasta bien entrado en Dakota del Sur. La costa occidental del lago atraviesa las reservas de Roca Enhiesta y del Río Cheyenne, y el oleoducto cruzaría el lago apenas a un kilómetro de la frontera de Roca Enhiesta.Cuando se creó, el lago Oahe inundó tierras de cultivo tribales, huertos de árboles frutales y bosques a lo largo del río Misurí, y desplazó a muchas familias nativoamericanas.Los antepasados de Mauai se encontraban entre esos afectados. La familia de su madre había vivido junto al río Cannonball, un tributario del Misurí que fue inundado, y se vio obligada a mudarse.“Crecí oyendo la historia” dijo Mauai, que ahora tiene 31años.Criado en la reserva de Roca Enhiesta, Mauai fue de niño a una escuela católica romana, pero lo confirmaron como episcopal cuando estaba en quinto grado. Finalmente se involucró en el ministerio nativo de la Iglesia y fue ordenado diácono en 2007. Su esposa también sirve de diácona.La bandera de la Iglesia Episcopal aparece atada a una cerca en el campamento de protesta del Círculo de Piedras Sagradas, junto con las banderas de otras organizaciones y tribus que participan en la protesta contra el Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas. Foto de Brandon Mauai vía Facebook.Su aprecio por el activismo de la Iglesia Episcopal se acrecentó mientras asistía a las convenciones generales a lo largo de la última década. Dijo que él percibía en la Iglesia un genuino interés en ocuparse de asuntos importantes para las comunidades nativas y [las personas] socialmente oprimidas.“La Iglesia ha sido por mucho tiempo defensora de los nativos en toda la nación, y yo creo que eso es justamente una de las cosas que somos llamados a hacer”, dijo Mauai.Esa defensa se refleja en la declaración emitida el 19 de agosto por el Consejo del Ministerio Indio de la Diócesis de Dakota del Norte, la cual cita las resoluciones de la Convención General en apoyo a los pueblos indígenas y oponiéndose al racismo ambiental y a las doctrinas legales que los críticos dicen que se han utilizado para negarles sus derechos a los nativoamericanos. Y le pide a la Iglesia Episcopal “que abogue por nosotros”.La declaración también llama al Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército a revocar su decisión respecto al Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas.La compañía bosquejó su proyecto de oleoducto, así como empeños para iniciar la construcción, en su reciente presentación judicial en que solicitaba una orden de restricción temporal contra los que los que se oponen.El oleoducto ha de extenderse a lo largo de 1857 kilómetros desde los yacimientos petrolíferos de Bakken, en el noroeste de Dakota del Norte hasta Patoka, Illinois, para llevar diariamente hasta 570.000 barriles de petróleo hacia la costa Oriental y la costa del Golfo [de EE.UU.]. La producción de petróleo en Dakota del Norte ha aumentado en los últimos seis años, dijo la compañía, y transportar gran parte de ese petróleo a través de un oleoducto será más seguro y más barato que hacerlo por barco, por tren o por carretera.La compañía también afirma que ha obtenido todos los permisos que necesita, incluida la autorización para atravesar el río Misurí con un oleoducto debajo del lago Oahe. El Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército dio el visto bueno a ese plan el 25 de julio.La construcción del cruce en el lago Oahe estaba programada para empezar el 10 de agosto, pero la compañía dijo que la enfrentaron unos 30 manifestantes. Ese grupo aumentó a 350 para el 12 de agosto, según documentos del tribunal, que acusan a algunos de los manifestantes de amenazar a los obreros y de derribar la cerca [que se había levantado] para intentar evitar que los manifestantes entorpecieran el proyecto.“No parece que los acusados tengan ningún fundamento válido para interferir con la construcción del Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas”, escribió el juez federal de distrito Daniel L. Hovland el 16 de agosto al emitir una orden temporal de restricción contra los manifestantes. Una vista sobre un requerimiento preliminar contra los manifestantes que se había fijado para el 25 de agosto se ha aplazado para el 8 de septiembre. La orden de restricción temporal se mantiene en vigor.El presidente tribal David Archambault II, una de las más de dos docenas de personas arrestadas en las protestas, respondió a la orden inicial del juez con una declaración en que prometía seguir oponiéndose al proyecto y hacerlo pacíficamente.“Nuestra posición básica es que el Cuerpo de Ingenieros no se ha atenido a la ley y no ha entrado a considerar los impactos [negativos] del oleoducto en la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta”, dijo Archambault.“Nuestra mano sigue abierta a la cooperación y nuestra causa es justa”, dijo Archambault en un artículo de opinión en The New York Times publicado el 25 de agosto. “Esta lucha no es sólo por los intereses de la tribu sioux de Roca Enhiesta, sino también por los de nuestros vecinos en el rio Misurí: los ganaderos y granjeros y pequeños pueblos que dependen del río han manifestado un respaldo abrumador a nuestra protesta”.La causa ha encontrado repercusión con los episcopales de Dakota del Norte debido a la convergencia de la justicia racial y la justicia medioambiental, y la causa medioambiental ha atraído el apoyo de grupos de activistas de afuera, notablemente de Earthjustice, con sede en San Francisco, que presentó una demanda federal en nombre de la tribu. La acción también ha atraído la atención de celebridades como Susan Sarandon, Leonardo di Caprio y la protagonista de Divergent Shailene Woodley, así como de organizaciones tales como el Grupo de Trabajo de las Naciones Unidas sobre Poblaciones Indígenas.Vicki Granado, portavoz de la compañía del oleoducto, dijo que la obra proseguirá en otras partes del proyecto. Ella calificó la protesta de “ilegal… a la luz del hecho que tenemos los permisos y aprobaciones necesarios para trabajar en este sitio”. Un juez federal dijo el 24 de agosto en Washington, D.C., que para el 9 de septiembre dictaminaría sobre la objeción legal de la tribu a la aprobación del Cuerpo de Ingenieros del Ejército.Luego de ese dictamen, Archambault dijo desde Washington que “que cualquiera que fuese el resultado en el tribunal creo que ya hemos establecido un principio importante: que las tribus sean oídas en asuntos importantes que afectan nuestros intereses vitales”.En el ínterin, manifestantes de afuera siguen llegando al campamento próximo al sitio de trabajo del oleoducto, y los líderes episcopales de la localidad lo visitan regularmente. El 19 de agosto, Mauai se apareció en el campamento con una enorme olla de sopa de macarrones con carne, la cual, teniendo en cuenta que había unas 2000 personas que alimentar, se consumió rápidamente.Algunos funcionarios de Roca Enhiesta dijeron esta semana que más de 80 tribus de todo el país han expresado su apoyo a la causa, un momento de unificación que, según dijo Mauai, es improbable que las tribus hayan visto en 140 años. En juego está el agua que beben, añadió Mauai, y resaltó la importancia del agua para los cristianos, desde referencias bíblicas hasta el uso del agua en el bautismo.Manifestantes que protestan por el Oleoducto para el Acceso a las Dakotas, que comenzara en Dakota del Norte, de pie a la puesta del sol en el Campamento de las Piedras Sagradas junto a un cartel en que puede leerse “mni wiconi”, que en lengua lakota quiere decir “el agua es la vida”. Foto de la Red Medioambiental Indígena vía Facebook.Él también hizo referencia a la expresión “mni wiconi”, que en lengua lakota significa “el agua es la vida”.

Episcopalians join ‘Native Nations’ to protest pipeline in nation’s capital

first_img walter woodson says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W. VanHook, II as Executive Director Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Janet Morrison says: Standing Rock March 11, 2017 at 8:24 am Please tell me your belief system, and I’ll try to respect you and treat you and your beliefs with the dignity that my EpiscopaL tradition has taught me to try to do. March 14, 2017 at 11:51 pm A Prayer for the Bakken Pipeline:Dear Jesus, you came so that we may have life and have it in abundance. Thank you for the blessings of abundant oil, which comes from deep within the womb of the Earth, our island home. Bless the oil company workers as they harvest the oil safely for our use. We were anointed with oil at our baptism, and so we know it is a symbol of your love and warmth. May those who benefit from its production have a living wage to lessen the burden of income inequality. May the schools funded from the taxes on this resource be centers of growth and renewal for our children. Give strength and alertness of mind to those who stand watch over the pipeline to ensure that the rest of your creation is not spoiled beyond our capability to restore it. This we ask in your name. Amen. Rector Pittsburgh, PA Fr. John Floberg says: March 11, 2017 at 12:33 am The plan for the DAPL is to transport some of the dirtiest oil through sacred lands of Native Americans. The possibility of the pipeline is very real. There have already been instances where the pipeline has ruptured. Would you want oil spilled in the rivers or lakes where your drinking water comes from? Would you want a pipeline constructed through a cemetery where your loved ones are buried? How is protecting the earth and water that God has entrusted to our care not a mission of the church, including the Episcopal Church. This is not so much a political issue as it is doing what God has instructed us to do – care for the earth and one another. Is this really not something traditional Episcoplians believe? Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Collierville, TN March 11, 2017 at 6:49 pm THANK YOU!!! You answered all of the doubters accusations with very clear and grounded doctrine!

Jesus’ Movement – then and now – was and is both profoundly spiritual and profoundly political. The link – in Jesus’ ministry and ours – between faith and politics is a not only justified, but necessary.  For both politics and religion concern themselves with social relationships, how we relate to one another, how we will shape our societies.  And good politics, like good religion, seeks to shape a just society.  Are we not called to “strive for justice and peace among all people” and to “respect the dignity of every human being?” It a call that has animated every liberation movement and compels us still to carry our faith into the public square. It is called building the Kingdom of God…brick by brick, broken shackle by broken shackle.In closing, I feel compelled to hold up Phyliss Manoogian – the one in the orange poncho. A deacon missioner in Guatemala and in the midst of this struggle in Standing Rock and Washington, she has responded to this call in ways that inspire. Hundreds if not thousands filled the streets of Washington, D.C., for the March 10 Native Nations Rise demonstration and rally.

Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceNorth Dakota Bishop Michael Smith opened a nearly two-hour prayer service March 9 at Washington National Cathedral on the eve of the march outlining the pattern. “For people of faith, working for justice includes both prayer and action. We pray and then we act, and then we pray again and we act, and we pray again and we act until the Creator God, who has made all that is, brings about that for which we work,” said Smith, an enrolled member of the Potawatomi Nation of Oklahoma. “Tonight we pray; tomorrow we act.”The next day, the Rev. Phyllis Manoogian, a deacon and Diocese of California missioner to Guatemala, wore a bright orange poncho to shield from the icy rain that fell as the march stepped off from in front of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ headquarters. She traveled to Washington, D.C., from the rural village near Antigua where she teaches indigenous women and their children, she said, because standing with the Standing Rock Sioux Nation epitomizes the call of the Jesus Movement.“I think the Episcopal Church has been on the tail end of many social issues, and I think it’s important that we step up and be leaders, not followers,” she said as the protesters rounded the corner near the Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters and moved down the block to pause outside of the new Trump International Hotel. “It’s part of the Christian ethos to care for others and to be good stewards of the Earth, and to love our neighbor.”The march and rally drew hundreds of people from Arizona, New Mexico, Illinois and New York, as well as the Dakotas. As native protesters and their allies marched through downtown Washington, D.C., Energy Transfer Partners was at work back in North Dakota. Bolstered by a favorable court ruling on March 7, the company is planning to start pumping oil next week through the last section of the 1,172-mile, 30-inch diameter pipeline. It recently punched that section under the Lake Oahe section of the Missouri River a half-mile off the Standing Rock Reservation.A large Episcopal contingent joined the march in D.C. Lay people, priests and seminarians from nearby Virginia Theological Seminary carried signs and joined in call-and-response shouts proclaiming that they stand with Standing Rock and that children cannot drink oil.The group included bishops with indigenous roots or ministry with indigenous peoples. In addition to Smith, Diocese of South Dakota Bishop John Tarrant, Diocese of Montana Assistant Bishop Carol Gallagher, Diocese of Navajoland Bishop David Bailey and Diocese of Alaska Bishop Mark Lattime marched.Episcopalians, from left, Joshua Floberg, the Rev. Lauren Stanley, the Rev. Phyllis Manoogian, the Rev. John Floberg and John Michael Floberg carry the Episcopal flag during the March 10 Native Nations Rise demonstration and rally. Photo courtesy of Lauren StanleyThe 2-mile route ended in Lafayette Square across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House. Opponents stood in the street under the watchful but non-interfering eyes of the police. At least two black-clothed people watched the crowd from the White House roof.As speakers voiced opposition to the pipeline at the rally, the Rev. Cornelia Eaton, a Navajoland priest who is in her second year at VTS, said that the Baptismal Covenant makes protecting water an essential job for Episcopalians.“[The Baptismal Covenant] speaks to the spirit of who we are and how God has called us into living in this place of brokenness and challenges,” she said.Episcopalians and indigenous people need to continue building relationships so that they begin to learn about each other and move into what her culture calls the “harmony way, the blessing way” of living with each other and the world, she said. “I believe that’s what God calls us to be and to become. That’s God’s desire for God’s people.”The pipeline is poised to carry up to 470,000 barrels of oil a day from the Bakken oil field in northwestern North Dakota – through South Dakota and Iowa – to Illinois, for shipping to refineries. Sioux tribal leaders repeatedly expressed concerns over the potential for an oil spill that would damage the reservation’s water supply and the threat the pipeline posed to sacred sites and treaty rights. Texas-based developer Energy Transfer Partners says it will be safer and better than transporting oil by truck or railcar.On Feb. 8, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, which manages parts of the Missouri River and the surrounding land, gave Energy Transfer Partners permission to drill the pipeline’s final stretch. Permission came at the prompting of President Donald Trump who, in one of his first presidential actions, told the Corps to move the pipeline forward.Judge James Boasberg of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia on March 7 rejected a tribal request to stop construction temporarily of the last section of the pipeline on religious grounds. Now, the Standing Rock and Cheyenne River Sioux tribes must wait for Boasberg to rule on the substance of their lawsuit, a ruling that may not come until April.The Standing Rock Sioux Nation, the Indigenous Environmental Network and the Native Organizers Alliance organized the Native Nations Rise march and the activities that preceded it. Those activities included a March 9-10 encampment of teepees in the shadow of the Washington Monument with speakers and cultural workshops, and the ecumenical and interfaith “Standing as Stone: Indigenous Nations and Allies Gather at the Washington National Cathedral” service the evening of March 9. Solidarity events happened around the country.Some of the many Episcopalians who attended the March 10 Native Nations Rise demonstration and rally pose in Lafayette Square across from the White House. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceRoman Catholics, Episcopalians and members from at least 11 Protestant denominations and affiliated groups supported the march and rally. Standing Rock Sioux Chairman Dave Archambault II asked the Rev. John Floberg, priest-in-charge of Episcopal congregations on the North Dakota side of Standing Rock, to lead the religious community’s solidarity activities.The Episcopal Church has advocated with the Sioux Nation against the Dakota Access Pipeline’s route since summer 2016. Local Episcopalians have also provided a ministry of presence in and around Cannon Ball, North Dakota, the focal point for groups of “water protectors,” or pipeline opponents, that gathered near the Lake Oahe crossing. Those gatherings drew together members of close to 300 tribes in an unprecedented show of unity that resurrected the indigenous rights movement in the United States.Organizers had three goals for this week’s events. The first was that Trump meet with tribal leaders to hear why the U.S. government must respect tribal rights. The second was to make the point that tribes must give their consent to such infrastructure developments as the Dakota Access Pipeline. Consultation with developers and government officials is not enough, they said. The third goal was to have a strong turnout of tribes and their allies in a show of support for tribal sovereignty aimed at protecting their homelands and the environment for future generations.Two men in a group of drummers and singers from the Standing Rock Sioux Nation participate in the “Standing as Stone: Indigenous Nations and Allies Gather at the Washington National Cathedral” service. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/Episcopal News ServiceThe night before the march, indigenous drumming and song filled Washington National Cathedral, and the smell of sweetgrass smudging hung in the air throughout the prayer service.The service symbolized Christian churches’ efforts to reconcile with native people, said the Rev. Brandon Mauai, a deacon in the Diocese of North Dakota and former member of the Episcopal Church Executive Council.“Every denomination has shown some support in trying to reconcile with the people,” he said, adding that activism surrounding the pipeline has spurred those efforts.“That’s the direction that we — the church — need to continue going in” and indigenous people need to work with the churches’ intentions, he said. “We — the church — will continue to work for the rights of the people, the original people of this land, for the rights of all people.”Balancing Sioux spiritual traditions with those of the church are always hard, Mauai acknowledged.He said he has been on both sides, witnessing the trauma inflicted on indigenous people in the name of spreading Christianity and then serving on church governing bodies trying to decide best how to reconcile with those harmed by that legacy.Worshippers experienced the embodiment of part of the Episcopal Church’s long association with the Sioux nations in the person of Faith Spotted Eagle, a relative of Vine Deloria Sr., a Standing Rock Sioux and the first tribal member ordained an Episcopal priest, and his son, Vine Jr., a noted theologian and author of “Custer Died for Your Sins: An Indian Manifesto.” Until the day of the service Spotted Eagle had only heard of but never seen the statue of the elder Deloria, who is one of very few Americans included in the reredos of the cathedral’s high altar.The Rev. Vine Deloria Sr., who was a member of the Standing Rock Sioux Nation and the first of his tribe to be ordained an Episcopal priest, is one of just a few Americans commemorated on the reredos of Washington National Cathedral’s high altar. Photo: Washington National CathedralWhen the Episcopalians first came to the Sioux reservations, Spotted Eagle told the congregation, the native people recognized some commonality because both they and the Episcopalians appreciated ceremony. In the Episcopal Church, she said, the Sioux found a spiritual practice to stand alongside their traditional beliefs and practices; beliefs and practices that had gone underground when some Christians forced them to choose between the two.“Our ancestors have done some work together,” said Spotted Eagle, to bring together native people and their allies. “I’m sure that the ancestors are going to be celebrating” as they see people marching together through the streets of the capital.The entire service is viewable below.

Submit an Event Listing Submit a Press Release March 12, 2017 at 9:22 am Wheter you realize it or not we are all paying the Episcopal Church to lobby for Leftist causes through the pledges we make to support our local churches. The income the EDUSA makes from the local church helps to to finance the Episcopal Church Office of Government Relations, a department within the Church that supports Advocacy and Social Justice. The department is staffed with 9 people with an average salary of $114, 657 with a budget of $727,000 for 2016-2018. Their budget was approved at the 2015 convention. The link below is an example of what they do and you all are paying for it!!!! Why is the Episcopal Church still a tax exempt Organization?

March 15, 2017 at 10:33 am Energy, employment, economic development, and the prudent use of capital that will result in a wide range of benefits to many. It takes a real Marxist, theological revisionist, eco fascist twist of thinking to oppose the pipeline. Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK March 16, 2017 at 12:42 am Indeed it does pjcabbiness. Have you noticed that there has also been no formal apology from bishop curry ,rev John floberg, or rev Stanley for providing material aid and comfort for the water protectors who left 835 industrial size dumpsters of trash across three camps in their zeal to protect the environment. 12 abandoned dogs too. 22 million in taxpayer funds for law enforcement as well. If they did apologize I stand corrected. Be ware the company you keep and those whom you physically declare solidarity with. Pjcabbiness says: March 16, 2017 at 2:27 am Excellent observation and analysis Rich Basta! March 10, 2017 at 8:24 pm It’s never been explained to me why the pipeline was to be protested, unless the EC is, I guess, anti-energy or something similarly strange. The science is that pipelines are one of the safer ways to transport energy. Plus the safety of a pipeline is an engineering and scientific question, not a theological one. The courts that heard arguments over this never even gave the time of day to any argument that there was some violation of tribal sovereignty, which pieces like this never acknowledge. This whole episode has been like a leftist version of trying to supplant science with religion. Aren’t we supposed to use reason? Oh well, it’s not like we have an iota of political clout in this country anyway, so I suppose it doesn’t really matter. Featured Jobs & Calls Advocacy Peace & Justice, Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Rector Washington, DC March 11, 2017 at 1:05 am I am sad about the first four comments above. This is not a leftest conspiracy. It is an act of solidarity with our brothers and sisters in Christ in South and North Dakota. The majority of Episcopalians in those Dioceses are enrolled members of several federally recognized tribes. We are supporting our own people by protesting with them. I served on the Rosebud Reservation for 13 years. I feel this event, which the Episcopal Church supported with a service at the National Cathedral, as well as with people coming from all over the country, is a high point of our church participating in the Jesus Movement.

Is it beyond hope that more decent traditionalist Episcopalians will speak out in protest before it’s too late? March 11, 2017 at 6:21 pm The trouble with your argument Vicki, is who decides what is good politics and good religion? The Jesus Movement, as progressives like yourself like to call it, may have a slightly different interpretation in the eyes of a conservative. Your interpretation of a just society may be different from a conservative’s. If conservatives march in protest in front of an abortion clinic would you consider that “good politics” or “good religion”? Probably not. If Christian conservatives carry their interpretation of their faith into the public square, would you at least respect them for doing that even if you don’t agree with them? Progressives do not have a monopoly on compassion, or a desire to have a just society. We just think there are other ways of achieving it besides jumping on every leftist cause that crops up. The problem Vicki, is people like yourself think that your methods of achieving that just society are the only legitimate ways of doing it.

March 11, 2017 at 7:23 am In reality this is a very conservative movement because it is based on a strict reading of the Constitution which reads that Treaties are the Supreme Law of the Land. When the actions of the United States fulfill thise Treaty Obligations Native Tribes are protected. When a Presidential Order or Act of Congress fails to fulfill Treaty Obligations we are not following our most Supreme Law.

The Gospel, my friends, IS political, in that it is concerned about the “polis” – the community – and is concerned about the people and how the government treats the people. Our Baptismal Convenant asks us to seek justice and to respect the dignity of every human being. The Church is involved in this protest, as in so many others, because the Church actually DOES respect the dignity of every human being and it DOES seek justice, both of which are sorely lacking when it comes to Native people in this country.2. This protest is not about oil per se, nor is it about energy per se. It is about how the Native people, particularly the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, are being treated by an energy company and a state (North Dakota) that adamantly refused to work with the Tribe (which is not opposed to energy development at all), intentionally rammed the pipeline through sacred burial grounds, moved the so-called “safe” pipeline from just north of majority-white Bismarck because it was deemed unsafe to put a pipeline under the river there (in case of leaks) to within yards of the Standing Rock Reservation (where, apparently, it doesn’t matter if the Native peoples have to suffer from a leak), and then how the State of North Dakota brutalized the water protectors because it could.3. If the Church will not stand up for the people, who, pray tell, will?4. Do not Native peoples deserve the same respect as any other people in this world?5. How is it “far left” to uphold God’s commandment to love our neighbors?6. How is it “pathetic” to proclaim the Gospel by word and deed?7. The Episcopal Church is involved in this action, as in so many others, because this is what God is calling us to do. The Gospel is not about sitting in our churches simply praying the world gets better; the Gospel calls us to ACT to make the world a better place.The Rev. Dr. Lauren R.

The commission consisted in making a family condominium of two independent houses on a common land of approximately 2,570 m2. The land is located in the southern hemisphere where the sunlight comes from the north. With this in mind for a good use of the orientation, we opted the use of the northern area of the land for the development of housing, leaving the south for vehicular circulation.Save this picture!© Sabino AguadSave this picture!Lower Floor PlanSave this picture!© Sabino AguadThe residential area was divided into two lots locating the houses at the end of each. In this way, an alternate garden-construction relationship was achieved, which makes the houses independent from each other and also from the street. The houses were developed around interior green yards, which give north light to the main rooms. In the first floor the public rooms and the secondary bedrooms were located, meanwhile, the second floors were destined exclusively for the master bedrooms and their support program.Save this picture!© Sabino AguadThere are three predominant materials in the construction. All the perimeter walls were covered with EIFS thermal system and then painted in black. The slabs and the beams of the terraces were left in exposed concrete. The second floors were projected as independent and lighter volumes than the first floors. These volumes were coated with Quadroline panels also painted in black. The roofs of these bodies are irregular and inclined, which gives to the rooms of the second-floor skies of different heights according to the hierarchy of the room.Save this picture!© Sabino AguadSave this picture!Elevations and SectionsSave this picture!© Sabino AguadProject gallerySee allShow lessSchmidt Hammer Lassen’s Overlapping Box Scheme Wins Competition for Sports and Commu…Unbuilt ProjectApple Reveals Plans for Foster + Partners-Designed Global Flagship Store in MelbourneArchitecture NewsProject locationAddress:Sta Blanca, Lo Barnechea, Región Metropolitana, ChileLocation to be used only as a reference.
