I feel privileged to know both of them. [Episcopal News Service – Dillon, Montana] When winter drove snow and cold up against the Continental Divide in southwestern Montana this season, the arrival of the self-proclaimed Woodchucks or Woodchicks with a load of firewood from the Tri Parish Wood Bank was a welcome sight.Many congregations run food banks or feeding programs, but the wood bank, a cooperative project of St. James’ Episcopal Church in Dillon, St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Virginia City and Christ Church in Sheridan is one of only a handful of such ministries in the Episcopal Church. The program, based out of St. James, is 20 years old this winter.“We’re commissioned to serve and commanded to love and this is how we do it,” the Rev. Sue Eades, rector of St. James, said recently while volunteers using chain saws and two log splitters cut up some of the last wood remaining in the ministry’s Dillon work site.“It’s just a blessing to everyone to be able to serve those who otherwise might not be warm in the winter – couldn’t afford to heat their house,” Eades said of the three-parish partnership. “It brings us all together in the name of Christ without arguing over theology or piety or whatever.”For St. Paul’s in Virginia City, which holds the distinction of being the first Episcopal congregation in the state, the wood bank is proof that a small church can have a big ministry.“We’re the only church in town and we have 18 people attend – 18 to 20 – through the winter, which is great because we’ve had four to six for many years,” said Micki Benedict, a member of St. Paul’s and a Woodchick. “It’s a way for us to show our little community that we’re not just here to have the Eucharist every Sunday or to have coffee hour; we’re here to help anybody that we can help.”Figures aren’t in for 2014, but last year the Rev. Harry Neeley, an 80-year-old priest who runs the ministry despite calling himself retired, and 100 volunteers brought 296 cords of wood to 644 people, along with 82 dozen eggs and 200 hats and mittens. The volunteers delivered those supplies during 196 trips to people in 16 towns. In addition, three families anonymously donated $3,000 to provide wood bank clients with school needs, food and Christmas gifts.During January and February of this year, Neeley said, the wood bank set records for deliveries as blizzards and extended periods of below-zero weather – and the spike in propane prices across the West – made the need for wood even more acute. The volunteers have been delivering to “people that we’ve never seen before,” he said.About 10,000 people are scattered over about 10,000 square miles of the wood bank’s territory that runs from Wisdom in the west 100 miles east to Virginia City and from Monida on the Montana-Idaho border north 100 miles to Waterloo. Montanans like to say that their state is “high, wide and handsome” and the wood bank’s range is home to huge ranches, world-class trout fishing – and the environmental legacy of the gold rush era. The 20-mile drive from Sheridan to Virginia City reveals hill upon hill of tailings left behind by miners who labored in the 1860s and beyond along Alder Creek.The wood bank’s clients, 60 percent of whom heat only with wood, rank mainly in the lower five percent of family or household income the area. They range in age from infants to a 95-year-old woman who cooks on a woodstove. She is one of two clients who uses wood to cook.People are referred to the ministry by area social service agencies plus word of mouth. Generally, clients need to meet federal food assistance eligibility requirements, although Neeley says that “as a Christian organization we make allowances.”Tri Parish Wood Bank volunteers use log splitters to break up some of the last firewood of the ministry’s 2013-2014 winter season. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENS“In the name of Christ, helping keep warm those who live in the shadow of the American dream,” is the wood bank’s mission statement.“And we’ve really tried to live up to that and live into that both,” Neeley said as he drove in one of the wood bank’s trucks between Dillon and the ministry’s other work site in Sheridan. And the volunteers aren’t just Episcopalians, he added, listing “atheists and Presbyterians and Baptists and Methodists and Catholics.”The 112 wood bank volunteers who worked in 2013 put in 3,546 hours of labor, according to the ministry’s annual report. The wood bank has no paid personnel. Someone, often Neeley, can be reached for help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year via a cellphone that rotates among the volunteers.Some of those work hours have been logged by young people with court-ordered community service requirements and participants in the Dillon-based Youth Challenge Academy, a National Guard-run program for high school dropouts.Many wood bank clients also provide hands-on support, either by coming to collect donated wood or by helping to unload it at their homes or at other clients’ homes, according to Head Woodchuck Neeley, who most days can be found on the job in his insulated overalls flecked with sawdust and chainsaw grease.Sometimes, Neeley said, the clients donate small amounts of money to the ministry. He calls it the alms of the poor because “I know what kind of pocket it’s coming out of.”While the wood bank’s main financial support comes from the three parishes and the United Way of Beaverhead County, dozens of individuals contribute amounts ranging from those “alms of the poor” to $1,000. A variety of Montana-based foundations also have contributed as has the Diocese of Montana.United Thank Offering gave the wood bank an $8,500 grant in 2013 that paid for hydraulic lifts on both of the ministry’s delivery trucks, nearly bringing an end to hand unloading (sometimes snow on a truckload means a few logs get frozen to the bed and need personal attention). The UTO grant will also cover the cost of a conveyor to move wood mechanically into the delivery trucks or onto piles at the two work and log-storage sites on the Bump Ranch outside Dillon and by the side of Mill Creek Road outside Sheridan.The Rev. Harry Neeley says hydraulic lifts for the Tri Parish Wood Bank’s two trucks make deliveries much easier. Photo: Mary Frances Schjonberg/ENSThe communities’ support of the ministry extends beyond those funding agencies. For instance, just before Shrove Tuesday earlier this month, the greeter sign on Stockman Bank in Dillon reminded passersby that proceeds from St. James’ pancake supper that evening would go to the wood bank.And then there’s the wood itself. The U.S. Forest Service gives the ministry access to harvestable trees through its firewood permit process. A sawmill in Argenta near Dillon donates wood it classifies as waste and the Dillon Tree Board donates any tree it removes from around the city to the wood bank.Plus, “people just give us gifts of wood,” said Neeley, including a rancher who thinned some stands of trees on his land and donated four logging truck loads of wood. In all, the ministry was gifted with 244 cords of wood in 2013.The financial and material donations have increased over the years, Neeley said, as the wood bank has gotten “more well-known and more trustworthy.”And the wood bank has got secular recognition for its ministry. The most recent honor came in early February when the wood bank was one of eight programs and individuals honored by Serve Montana, a volunteer-promotion effort of the state governor’s office.“It’s just rewarding. I know that Christ has blessed us; we have been blessed in so many ways by financial gifts and recognitions that weren’t sought but given,” Neeley said. “That’s kind of how I measure how we do; how we’re doing with our people that we serve and how we’re viewed in the community and the state. And it’s been good.”– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

Scotland’s Greig Laidlaw in confident mood ahead of France clash

See the team below, and hear what captain Greig Laidlaw had to say about their chances of success, the French clash and his season with Gloucester.Scotland’s starting team features just two changes from that which defeated Tonga 37-12 in the final Autumn Test, and three Six Nations debutants in Finn Russell, Mark Bennet and Blair Cowan.A blend of experience and youth will once again orchestrate the back division as captain Greig Laidlaw – who stands one away from scoring 300 points for his country – and number ten Russell start their fifth Test match together.Scotland head coach Vern Cotter, said: “Seeing the passion and desire among our players in the build up to the tournament has been special. The players really enjoy the atmosphere of these big occasions, and the pressure of having to perform for their country, in front of huge crowds.“They’re looking forward to getting out there. France will be tough. They played well in the autumn series but remain frustrated with past results in the RBS 6 Nations.“They will be very difficult to contain so we’ll have to stay tight as a unit, work hard for each other and try to apply some pressure. It’ll be a very tough start to the championship, but we’re looking forward to that challenge,” Cotter added.Scotland team to play France at the Stade de France, Paris(kick-off 6pm local, 5pm GMT)Scotland: 15 Stuart Hogg, 14 Tommy Seymour,13 Mark Bennett, 12 Alex Dunbar, 11 Tim Visser, 10 Finn Russell, 9 Greig Laidlaw, 8 Johnnie Beattie, 7 Blair Cowan, 6 Rob Harley, 5 Jonny Gray, 4 Richie Gray, 3 Euan Murray, 2 Ross Ford, 1 Alasdair Dickinson.Replacements: 16 Fraser Brown, 17 Gordon Reid, 18 Geoff Cross, 19 Jim Hamilton, 20 Alasdair Strokosch, 21 Sam Hidalgo-Clyne, 22 Peter Horne, 23 Dougie Fife.Injured and unavailable: Adam Ashe (neck), Chris Cusiter (knee), Chris Fusaro (ankle), Grant Gilchrist (arm), Tyrone Holmes (face), Ruaridh Jackson (knee), Sean Lamont (calf), Henry Pyrgos (knee), Matt Scott (shoulder), Tim Swinson (calf), Duncan Taylor (hamstring), Duncan Weir (arm).ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Six Nations 2015 Related Articles 325 WEEKS AGO Courtney Lawes lays into another unsuspecting… 325 WEEKS AGO England and France’s Twickenham thriller… 325 WEEKS AGO Ireland thump Scotland to set up second Championship… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Liam Squire big performance includes thumping hit that injured his own shoulder

first_imgFriday Jun 14, 2019 Liam Squire big performance includes thumping hit that injured his own shoulder In only his second appearance this season, All Blacks and Highlanders flanker Liam Squire had a huge game against the Waratahs in Invercargill on Friday.ADVERTISEMENTThe blindside flanker has suffered from hip and knee injuries all season, but made his return last week against the Bulls, and was making his home return against the Australian outfit.The Highlanders went into the game knowing they needed a bonus point win if they were to make the playoffs, but still were reliant on the Lions losing on Saturday and the Chiefs winning against the Melbourne Rebels without a bonus point.WATCH: Bone-crunching Cam Clark hit forces knock on in Super RugbyThey did all they could, and were 42-7 up at half-time, with Squire showing no rustiness after such a long absence.The Highlanders ended up winning 49-12, with Squire playing just under 50 minutes. But in that time, the 28-year-old laid down the marker to Steve Hansen ahead of the Rugby Championship and the World Cup in the coming months. He ran and tackled with a lot of aggression, making some key breaks.This first half tackle on winger Cam Clark summed up his performance:ADVERTISEMENTDespite being clattered, Clark was unscathed but Squire had to leave the field worse for wear after the hit.Regardless, it was a powerful shift and one that impressed onlookers at an important time in the season. With the Chiefs’ Sam Cane also making a return in the past weeks from a broken neck, Hansen will have fewer worries for the months ahead.Like Sam Cane with the Chiefs, Liam Squire showed tonight that a big AB can transform a team. #HIGvWAR— Paul Cully (@paulcullystuff) June 14, 2019ADVERTISEMENTWow. That’s a sight for sore eyes, Liam Squire dashing away like that to ignite the Highlanders. Somewhere Steve is smiling.— Marc Hinton (@marchintonffx) June 14, 2019Liam Squire!!!!🔥🔥— _Tosh•🌬 (@Toshinsky1) June 14, 2019In what was a big day for both the Highlanders and the Waratahs (who also had a very slim chance of making the playoffs), many Highlanders players stood up, and Squire was one of them.The All Blacks number 6 shirt is there for the taking in 2019, and although it is late in the season for Super Rugby, the 23-cap Squire must certainly be a contender now.

Developed as a response to the Soham murders, the scheme applies to anyone working with children or vulnerable adults and requires them to have a criminal record check.Cultural charities were the least aware, with 45% of managers and trustees saying they did not know about the new rules. For youth charities, which might be expected to be more aware of the issue, the figure was still 20%.A quarter of those surveyed thought that the Act would not have the desired effect of increasing protection for vulnerable groups. Furthermore, 16% of charity managers and trustees said they felt the introduction of the rules would deter new volunteers, and 6% said they felt it could have an impact on their existing volunteers’ willingness to stay involved.Steve Wood, Managing Director of Ecclesiastical Insurance, commented: “We wanted to see how charities were dealing with the new vetting and barring rules because failure to implement them correctly could lead to litigation and significant costs for charities”.The telephone study was conducted for Ecclesiastical during November 2009 and surveyed a representative sample of 142 charities.www.ecclesiastical.comlast_img read more

first_imgNews News AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh June 4, 2021 Find out more RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan News Organisation RSF_en AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF sayscenter_img CIVIC SOLIDARITY PLATFORM AND INTERNATIONAL PARTNERSHIP GROUP ON AZERBAIJANJULY 23, 2012We, the undersigned members of the Civic Solidarity Platform and the International Partnership Group on Azerbaijan (IPGA), urgently call on the Council of Europe, the EU and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) to press the Azerbaijani government to immediately stop the harassment and intimidation of civil society activists and journalists in Azerbaijan, and to conform to international standards and commitments on freedom of expression and on the rights of human rights defenders.Fears that harassment would intensify in the aftermath of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest appear to have been well-founded. Harassment increased after an adviser to President Ilham Aliyev, Ali Hasanov, publicly threatened civil activists at a conference just days after the Eurovision final. On 31 May 2012, at a conference entitled ‘The role of NGOs in the development of civil society’, Hasanov warned that opposition activists“ should not dare appear in society” and urged conference attendees to show ‘public hatred’ against these individuals.A speech by President Aliyev, during a Cabinet of Ministers meeting on Wednesday 11 July 2012, provided further cause for concern when he branded civil activists “anti-nationalist forces” and “traitors to the nation” for exposing human rights problems in the country ahead of the song contest.We are shocked and alarmed at these statements and believe that the government of Azerbaijan is stepping up its campaign of intimidation and interrogation of activists and critical journalists in retaliation for their extensive work in the lead up to the Eurovision.Perhaps the most emblematic of this harassment is the arrest and detention, on 12 June 2012, of photographer Mehman Huseynov on hooliganism charges. Huseynov was very active in Sing for Democracy, a civil society campaign that sought to expose and seek improvements to Azerbaijan’s human rights record ahead of the Eurovision Song Contest. His photographs were extensively disseminated in social networks and used by local and international media and other organizations. His arrest seems to have been clearly intended to intimidate and punish him for his activism, and to send a warning signal to others. Although Huseynov has since been released, the politically-motivated criminal charges against him still stand.These actions contravene Azerbaijan’s obligations as a member state of Europe’s oldest human rights organisation, the Council of Europe. They are even more worrying in light of the recent Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly Resolution 1891 (2012) on the situation of human rights defenders in member states. The Resolution calls on member states to “stop accusing human rights defenders of being extremists or agents of foreign powers unless there exists compelling evidence to this effect”.Moreover, the Resolution appeals to member states to put an end to any administrative, fiscal or judicial harassment of human rights defenders, to create an enabling environment for their work, and to ensure, in all circumstances, that they are able to carry out their activities in accordance with international human rights standards and relevant national legislation.As a member of the United Nations Security Council, Azerbaijan should uphold universal United Nations standards, such as the Declaration on Human Rights Defenders. In her report to the Human Rights Council in 2010, the Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights defenders, Margaret Sekaggya, underlined that “the growing characterization of human rights defenders as ‘terrorists’, ‘enemies of the State’ or ‘political opponents’ by State authorities and State-owned media is a particularly worrying trend, as it is regularly used to delegitimize the work of defenders and increase their vulnerability”.This on-going retaliation and politically motivated persecutions of activists and journalists3 in Azerbaijan since the Eurovision Song Contest indicate that the government is determined to silence critical voices. Azerbaijan’s international partners must view these worrying trends as a signal of a potentially broader crackdown against critical activists and take immediate action.In the aftermath of the Eurovision Song Contest, and, with international attention on Azerbaijan diminishing, we urgently appeal to the Council of Europe, EU member states, and the OSCE to publicly highlight that intimidation and harassment of activists in Azerbaijan is unacceptable and to call on the Azerbaijani government to put an end to these practices.- Albanian Helsinki Committee- Article 19- Association of Ukrainian monitors on Human Rights conduct in Law Enforcement (Association UMDPL) (Ukraine)- Belarusian Helsinki Committee- Belarusian Human Rights House in exile, Vilnius- Centre for Civil Liberties (Ukraine)- Centre for the Development of Democracy and Human Rights (Russia)- Center for National and International Studies (CNIS), Baku, Azerbaijan- Freedom Files (Russia)- Georgian Young Lawyers’ Association- Golos Svobody (Kyrgyzstan) – Helsinki Citizen’s Assembly – Vanadzor (Armenia)- Helsinki Foundation for Human Rights (Poland)- Human Rights House Foundation (Norway)- Human Rights Monitoring Institute (Lithuania)- Human Rights Watch- Index on Censorship- International Partnership for Human Rights (Belgium)- Media Diversity Institute- Moscow Helsinki Group- Netherlands Helsinki Committee- Norwegian Helsinki Committee- Nota Bene (Tajikistan)- PEN International- People in Need, Czech Republic- Promo LEX Association (Moldova)- Reporters Without Borders- Ukrainian Helsinki Human Rights Union- Youth Human Rights Movement July 26, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 STOPPING THE HARASSMENT AND INTIMIDATION OF ACTIVISTS AND JOURNALISTS IN AZERBAIJAN News to go further Help by sharing this information June 8, 2021 Find out more Follow the news on Azerbaijan Receive email alerts April 9, 2021 Find out morelast_img read more

Pressure on media as police picked up in model’s murder

first_img February 22, 2021 Find out more Receive email alerts to go further News RSF_en November 16, 2006 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Pressure on media as police picked up in model’s murder Reporters Without Borders has condemned the actions of Malaysia’s police in trying to stifle coverage of a murder case in which police officers are among the suspects and expressed concern about protection of their sources.Police have been summoning and putting pressure on journalists while the head of police has told the press that it was speculating dangerously.Model Altantuya Shaariibuu, 28, was murdered on 19 October. Her body was mutilated by being blown up with explosives. The case has received huge press coverage, some of it sensationalist, particularly since it was revealed that the woman had a relationship with a well known political analyst, Abdul Razak Baginda, and that she had come to Malaysia seeking financial help for her sick son.”In the midst of the media storm around the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu, Reporters Without Borders condemns the attitude of the police, who seeing themselves under attack, are trying to hush up the case and also to force some journalists to reveal their sources,” the organisation said.“While the investigators already have enough solid evidence to accuse suspects, it is regrettable that reporters should be summoned and urged to practice self-censorship,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation.Two police officers have been charged and the political analyst Abdul Razak Baginda is being held in custody. The prime minister has called for a thorough investigation and the Inspector-General of police, Tan Sri Musa Hassan accused journalists on 13 November of conducting a “trial by media”. “I know people are curious about this case, but do not speculate. I want to know where you get the information you are publishing,” he said. Police have summoned several journalists.Elsewhere, the Weekend Mail and its editor, Mohammed Zulkifli Abdul Jalil, were suspended on 6 November, after publication, the previous evening of a report into sexuality. The interior security minister launched an investigation into the “incident”. The government said it had acted under pressure from the public who were shocked by the report. The New Straits Times Press group published a full-page apology in the daily Malay Mail. The authorities could take other sanctions under Article 6 (2) of the 1984 press law.
