A Ministry of Justice spokesman told City A.M. that the guidance had been delayed to allow “more time … to make sure the Act is fit for purpose and as comprehensive as possible,” directly addressing accusations levelled at the law earlier yesterday by incoming director-general of the CBI, John Cridland. “The regulation is not fit for purpose,” said Cridland, speaking on Radio 4’s Today programme. “None of the definitions have been properly defined.” Once the government’s revised guidance is released there will be a three-month gap before the legislation comes in, pushing implementation beyond the planned April deadline. Business groups have been lobbying hard for the government to review the Act, with concerns raised over how corporate gifts will be treated under the rules. Hospitality has been a particular sticking point for City firms, which want detailed guidance on exactly what will be acceptable to offer to clients. Concern is likely to gain momentum as summer sports timetables get underway, with corporate packages to the London Olympics in 2012 high on the list of gifts that companies are keen to get clarity on.But despite the temporary reprieve offered by the delay advisers are warning that businesses should still be preparing now for the Act. “Companies are ill-advised to delay their preparations,” said PricewaterhouseCoopers partner Andrew Gordon. “Putting adequate procedures in place takes longer than companies realise.” Show Comments ▼ Share Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Katharine Jefferts SchoriPresiding Bishop and PrimateThe Episcopal ChurchGreetings from The Episcopal Church, and its 82 churches named for Alban – one in Haiti and the others in 40 of the United States. They are celebrating their patronal feasts this weekend as well.Our communications director told me recently about a conversation she had at a trade conference with various Hollywood types. They wanted to know what would attract Christians to watch their movies and television shows, particularly comedies and horror flicks. She started by explaining that Episcopalians and other mainline Christians would be interested in material that helps people live lives of spiritual growth and justice, and that like all people, we need to laugh, and we need heroes when we’re scared.Alban is the über-hero of Christian England, the first we know of who put his life where his heart was. Even before he’d been baptized, he recognized the truth of what he saw and heard from the priest seeking shelter in his home. Alban learned by word and witness what it means to lose your life in order to save it, and then he went and did it. We all need heroes, particularly if we’re going to live to the full.We think of heroes as examples of strength and courage. “Hero” originally meant a defender or protector. It comes from a root that means to watch over or observe. Jesus asked his friends in the Garden of Gethsemane to keep watch, but they closed their eyes. They weren’t heroic at all. In the pilgrimage we’ve just experienced, Alban the faithful hero is still keeping watch as part of the communion of saints, but his executioner lost his eyes, being no defender or protector.Who are your heroes? Who has shown you what it means to spend your life as a defender or protector of others, for the love of God and neighbor? That’s ultimately what makes life worth living. A chaplain in a cancer ward tells a heroic story, “Tonight at dinner I reminisced with an old friend in his forties now dying of bone cancer. We have different beliefs but a great deal of love for each other. He told me, “I am not afraid of dying. I am afraid of not living now.”[1]Living fully, right now, is central to our pilgrimage through life. It’s an essential part of what Jesus meant when he said, “I came that you might have life and have it abundantly.” Life isn’t a video game with a goal of scoring points for future lives – it’s about giving ourselves in love, for love, with love itself. Sometimes it’s called passion – both the passion of full and loving involvement in relationship with another or all creation, and the costly passion of Alban or Jesus. Full investment in life means a willingness to spend ourselves completely – it costs all we are and all we have. The rewards aren’t just out of this world, they’re found in the abundant life we know and experience in that investment. That’s what caught Alban up – the ability to live fully by responding to the persecution of another. All kinds of justice work are like that – and the passion driving it ultimately yields joy.The passionate desire to love and right the world comes in many different forms. An Episcopal church in Davenport, Iowa, named St. Alban’s has adopted a big cross-country truck stop.[2] They show up there to minister to truck drivers and look for women and teens who are being trafficked across the country, or in danger of being lured by traffickers. These parishioners quite literally befriend the lonely and hungry and those in peril. They keep watch over the vulnerable.There are quiet heroes all around us, like the unnamed millions of refugees who shepherd others in distress. Mothers are bringing and sending their young children across the southern border of the United States in unprecedented numbers right now, fleeing hunger, gang threats and violence in their Central American homelands – more than 50,000 of them in the last 8 months.[3] One mother from El Salvador left her job as a social worker and brought her 11 year old daughter to the U.S. to keep her safe from gangs threatening to rape or kidnap her.[4] Where are the heroes who will guard and protect lost Nigerian schoolgirls?Full and passionate investment in life doesn’t always look physically dangerous. I think of Mindy, a young woman born without arms or legs, whose awesome artwork is painted with a brush held in her teeth. When I met her several years ago, she wanted to go and work with disabled children in Haiti. She never would have put it this way, but her very presence bears heroic witness to the possibility of abundant life.In this season we’re remembering the passionate gift of life 75 years ago, given by thousands who spent themselves on beaches and battlefields to liberate Europe. Others invested themselves in the word and words of life, figuring out how to send strategic messages. The last of the original Navajo code talkers, Chester Nez, died earlier this month. Using their own native language, he and 28 of his fellow Navajo soldiers developed a code the Japanese were never able to break. They invested the intimate identity of their culture, largely unknown to outsiders, in the cause of freedom and justice. The Navajo and other native peoples in North America continue to send disproportionate numbers to serve in the Armed Forces. A young Native American woman from Arizona was among the first casualties of the Iraq War in 2003. Arizona has named Piestewa Peak in her honor. Like Alban’s shrine, it stands as a marker of heroism and sacrifice.The Vicar of Baghdad, Andrew White, is a powerful witness to the same kind of heroic living. He writes, “I don’t know what to do, do I stay [in Baghdad] or go back [to safety]? I have a huge amount of commitments here. If I go back, I cannot change the situation but I want to be with my people. Here we are with this huge crisis and need and we do not even have the resources to help those most in need.”[5] He stays, out of solidarity, with his eyes and his heart open.Heroes are vulnerable, for passion removes our usual self-protective defense mechanisms.Will you be a hero? How will you live as a protector and defender of others? Will you keep watch? For the love of God, where will you spend yourself?[1] http://www.huffingtonpost.com/reverend-dr-malcolm-clemens-young/the-fault-in-our-stars-an_b_5490725.html[2] http://qctimes.com/news/local/community-group-addresses-problem-of-human-trafficking/article_fd0a1fe0-6872-11df-9f0b-001cc4c002e0.html[3] http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/19/us/border-centers-struggle-to-handle-onslaught-of-children-crossers.html?emc=edit_th_20140619&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=16061526&_r=1[4] http://www.nytimes.com/2014/06/17/us/migrants-flow-in-south-texas-as-do-rumors.html?ref=us[5] https://www.episcopalnewsservice.org/2014/06/16/urgent-prayer-help-needed-for-iraqs-christians/ The Church Investment Group Commends the Taskforce on the Theology of Money on its report, The Theology of Money and Investing as Doing Theology Church Investment Group Rector Shreveport, LA Associate Rector for Family Ministries Anchorage, AK Rector Albany, NY Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Rector (FT or PT) Indian River, MI Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Featured Events Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Virtual Celebration of the Jerusalem Princess Basma Center Zoom Conversation June 19 @ 12 p.m. ET Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Featured Jobs & Callscenter_img Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Rector Bath, NC Assistant/Associate Priest Scottsdale, AZ Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Director of Music Morristown, NJ An Evening with Aliya Cycon Playing the Oud Lancaster, PA (and streaming online) July 3 @ 7 p.m. ET Youth Minister Lorton, VA Submit a Job Listing Submit a Press Release Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Press Release Service Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Curate Diocese of Nebraska Priest-in-Charge Lebanon, OH Tags Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA Rector Knoxville, TN Rector Belleville, IL Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Martinsville, VA last_img read more

And one organization on campus is seek to appeal of this love of the TV streaming service.Better Together is an interfaith group on TCU’s campus that meets monthly to discuss “spiritual perspectives and religious traditions,” according to its website. The club is known for its Know Your Neighbor night dinners, but now, the members of Better Together are trying something different.Students gathered in Jarvis Hall Tuesday night for Better Together’s first, ‘Only God Can Judge Me’ event. Club members and students from different organizations on campus came together to watch Aziz Ansari’s popular Neflix show, Master of None.The episode, titled “Religion”, focuses on the main character Dev’s struggle with not being devoutly Muslim and how to break it to his parents. Students who varied religiously from Roman Catholic to Hindu discussed how their devoutness to religion affects their lives with family, friends and on campus.Sijil Patel, a junior biology pre-med major and Better Together co-president, said Tuesday’s event was planned with a broad appeal.“We’re watching an episode of Master of None because everyone can relate to Netlfix on some level,”Patel said. “We’re kind of just using this 20 minute episode to start the conversation that just because you’re a member of a faith doesn’t mean you adhere to every single finicky rule that your faith kind of stipulates.”Better Together’s faculty leader and associate Chaplin of Religious and Spiritual Life, Britt Luby, said this kind of interfaith discussion between students is crucial here at TCU.“It helps to know different people who are in your community in a safe, really safe, environment and an environment that encourages questions,” Luby said. “I think that makes you a better person, a better neighbor, a better student.”Luby also said these interfaith discussions are important because it’s necessary to know people from one religious or cultural group are not all the same.“The reality is there are all types of people on the [religious] spectrum,” Luby said. “I think things like tonight, will kind of open a door to a conversation about how everybody practices their own religion differently.”Better Together wants to encourage not only its members, but students all across campus, that interfaith work can be as simple as making a new friend.“I became a part of Better Together through my friends who actually taught me, like Sijil who taught me, about other religions,” said Blake Williams, a senior biochemistry pre-med major and Better Together co-president. “She taught me all about Islam and most of what I know is from her and I kind of knew nothing about it.”Better Together meets every first and second Tuesday of the month.[<a href=”//storify.com/mm_guter/master-of-none” target=”_blank”>View the story “Master of None ” on Storify</a>] Previous articleShift to automated locks may leave classrooms at riskNext articleHorned Frogs are excited for upcoming date with Baker Mayfield, OU Megan Guter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Review: Ali and Mortensen bring the ’60s to life in Peter Farrelly’s ‘Green Book’ + posts Megan Guterhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/megan-guter/ TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history Welcome TCU Class of 2025last_img read more

News website correspondent still incommunicado 48 hours after arrest

It is intolerable that we are still without any news of this journalist 48 hours after his arrest.” Reporters Without Borders continues to be concerned about his state of health.Farah was arrested at around 11 a.m. on 8 August in Djibouti-Ville by two police officers, Col. Abdoulkader Ibrahim Gona and Col. Abdillahi Hassan Boulaleh. Reporters Without Borders has meanwhile learned that Djibouti’s authorities have just blocked access to five Somali news websites – Waagacusub.com, Sunatimes.com, Galmudugnews.com, Halbeegnews.com and Qurbejoog.com.Waagacusub.com recently posted confidential documents about transfers of money between Djibouti’s intelligence services and officials in Somaliland, a breakaway Somali territory that adjoins Djibouti.This is not the first time Djibouti’s authorities have blocked news websites. The former web radio Farah works for and which is now a news website – La Voix de Djibouti (lavoixdedjibouti.com) – cannot be accessed from within Djibouti. To circumvent this censorship, Reporters Without Borders created a mirror site (lavoixdedjibouti.rsf.org) that enables Internet users in Djibouti to access the website. La Voix de Djibouti’s website recently posted some of the confidential documents that had been revealed by Waagacusub.com.———————————————————————————-2012.08.08 – Police arrest news website reporter, looking for colleagueReporters Without Borders has learned that Houssein Ahmed Farah, a reporter for the opposition news website La Voix de Djibouti, was arrested at around 11 a.m. today in the capital, Djibouti-Ville, and is being held in a cell at the main police station.The media freedom organization has also been told that the police are looking for another La Voix de Djibouti reporter, Farah Abadid Hildid. La Voix de Djibouti is a former web radio operated by exiles based in Europe and is now a news website.”The authorities have given no reason for arresting Farah and we urge them to free him at once.” Reporters Without Borders said. “We are very concerned about his detention as he is diabetic and was observing the Ramadan fast. Given the current heat and tough detention conditions in Djibouti, this incident could have serious consequences for his health.”Farah is a member of the Djibouti Human Rights League and the Movement for Democratic Renewal and Development, an opposition party led by his brother Daher Ahmed Farah. He has been arrested several times in the past, most notably in 2004 and 2011.Outside Djibouti, Internet users can visit La Voix de Djibouti’s website at the following address (www.lavoixdedjibouti.com). It is blocked inside the country but Internet users there can nonetheless have access to it by going to the Reporters Without Borders mirror site (www.lavoixdedjibouti.rsf.org).photo : Houssein Ahmed Farah December 9, 2020 Find out more Organisation DjiboutiAfrica News Newscenter_img Help by sharing this information to go further News RSF_en DjiboutiAfrica August 4, 2020 Find out more News Another Voix de Djibouti reporter arrested in Djibouti City July 17, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders asks for pardon for a Jordanian journalist sentenced to death

first_img Receive email alerts QatarMiddle East – North Africa Follow the news on Qatar August 7, 2020 Find out more Organisation Reporters Without Borders has asked the Qatari Emir Sheik Hamad Ben Khalifa al-Thani to pardon forthwith the journalist Firas Majali whose death sentence was confirmed by a Qatari appeals court on 24 February 2003. “We are overwhelmed at the idea that this sentence may be executed. Without predjuging the merits of the case, we must emphasise that Firas Majali’s trial took place in a climate of great tension between Jordan and Qatar, which undoubtedly hindered the holding of a fair and equitable trial. Many observers see in this case a diplomatic row that has opposed for months the two countries and for which a journalist has already sufficiently borne the brunt”, said Robert Ménard, secretary-general of Reporters Without Borders.A Jordanian national, Firas Majali was arrested in February 2002 in Doha (Qatar), where he was working as a journalist for the first channel of the Qatari State television. Accused of ‘spying’ for his country, he was sentenced by the Supreme Court of Doha to the death penalty on 22 October 2002. The journalist is also the son of a former Jordanian information minister and belongs to an influential Jordanian family, which contributes to politicising this affair.The broadcasting, on 6 August 2002, by the Qatari channel Al-Jazira of a programme deemed offensive to the late King Hussein of Jordan angered the authorities in Amman (Jordan). The following day, Al-Jazira’s offices in Jordan were shut and the press accreditations of its journalists withdrawn. The Jordanian government also recalled its ambassador in Doha, accusing Al-Jazira of ‘fomenting sedition in the kingdom’ and ‘slandering’ the royal family .Despite a media campaign against Qatar engineered by Jordan, relations between the two countries have improved in recent months. At end October 2002, the Jordanian ambassador to Qatar was reinstated in his post.
