Submit a Press Release [Anglican Communion News Service] Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby has declared his support for Archbishop of Cape Town Thabo Makgoba in a dispute with the South African president.In his Christmas sermon, Makgoba had rejected a call from President Jacob Zuma for the church to stay out of politics. In a statement, Zuma later said that he had been referring to party politics. In response, Makgoba welcomed the clarification but insisted the church would not keep quiet and would not keep out of politics.Full article.

I do respect separation of Church (religion) and State however there are times when politicians need to be reminded that they have someone Higher to whom we must all answer. All of us at one or time have looked towards religious institutions for guidance and support. It will help society in the long run to have some moral / ethical guidelines to work with.

He spoke the truth in Jerusalem and he is doing so again. In standing tall to speak truth to power, he provides a model for American clergy – and laity – in our current time of peril. And there are welcome echoes in the letter on climate change and immigration that the bishops of California have written to the President-Elect and the forceful statement of solidarity and resistance by the vestry of Seattle’s St. Mark’s Cathedral. For too long we have hidden behind the potential loss of our tax exemption as an excuse for silence.

Faster emergency responses? There’s an app for that…

first_img Apopka Fire Department and Florida Hospital Use New Mobile Application for Faster Emergency ResponseFrom The City of ApopkaApopka is partnering with Florida Hospital as the first fire department in the state to utilize new mobile communication software that speeds up emergency medical service.City paramedics started using the Twiage mobile application this month, complementing traditional two-way radios to deliver medical information while en route to Florida Hospital Apopka. The new system provides for fast and accurate communication allowing hospital emergency medical teams to better evaluate and prepare for patient treatment. Apopka Fire Chief Chuck Carnesale and Capt. Wil Sanchez joined with Florida Hospital staff on Monday to demonstrate the software with Twiage CEO and co-founder John Hui. Other fire departments are now evaluating the software for future use.“It was hard to believe that in 2017 radio was still the main communication form in the emergency medical services environment,” said John Hui, Twiage CEO. “With this new app, first responders can upload all the information about a patient in less than 30 seconds.”The new program started as an initiative to provide better care to stroke patients, but after seeing its potential, Florida Hospital decided to implement it throughout its system of hospitals to offer expedited care to all patients.“The improved technology allows the hospital to know our exact time of arrival, thanks to a real-time GPS system,” said Apopka Fire Capt. Wil Sanchez. “We can also transmit photos and videos from the emergency scene, allowing the staff at the hospital to know what we are actually dealing with.”Paramedics use preset buttons on the mobile application to quickly provide critical, HIPAA-compliant text information to the hospital. Two-way radios can make it difficult at times to hear audio transmissions from ambulances – especially amid the noise at emergency scenes. Twiage also allows paramedics to send digital texts and pictures from the scene, providing doctors with a clearer assessment from the field.Hospital teams use that information to save time on preparations and even assign an emergency room location to the deliver the patient. Over time, the hospital also can track data from emergency responses to follow trends and improve service even further. Florida Hospital is the first health care system in the state to implement this new technology.

The first artists moved here including Yue Minjun and Fang Lijun,in the early 1990’s, having been driven out of another community near the Old Summer Palace in Beijing’s north-west. For more than 10 years these artists were virtual outcasts with much of their work politically inspired, lived and worked under the watchful eye of communist authorities.

As an individual I do not have difficulty but that is not the point. My convenience is not to be taken as a yardstick. The average number of bar cannot do this.” Singh narrated the impact of virtual functioning before the Bench comprising of Justice SK Kaul and Justice Subhash Reddy.Following Singh’s arguments, the Supreme Court called for a meeting between the judges committee and newly elected Supreme Court Bar Association to “iron out” their differences in so far as their perception of the SOP is concerned. While arguing that even the Judges of the Apex Court were unaware of the stand of the Bar with regards the SOP, Singh- who is also the SCBA President- argued that the SOP was issued without hearing the Bar Association on the subject. Difficulty Of “Unsuccessful” and Struggling Lawyers To Survive Amid Pandemic Senior Advocate Vikas Singh, who is seeking complete resumption of physical hearings, began highlighting the troubles faced by unsuccessful and struggling lawyers to survive in the pandemic hit legal community. According to Singh, such lawyers were the “real sufferers” of the day. Arguing that many established and successful lawyers including him enjoyed the privilege of earning well in the middle of the covid-19 pandemic, Singh submitted that “As an individual I do not have difficulty but that is not the point. My convenience is not to be taken as a yardstick. The average number of bar cannot do this.” In view of this, Singh went ahead to submit that due to the difficulties faced by such lawyers at the Bar, lawyers even faced difficulty of running their homes and paying fees for their children, so much so that some have even switched their profession. “Filing of the matters have gone down below by 20 to 25%. Some lawyers are facing difficulty to run their homes, to pay fees for their children fees. Some have even left their profession.” Singh submitted. At this juncture, Justice Subhash Reddy intervened and supported the grievance highlighted by Singh by saying that the Bench knows the problems faced by young lawyers, however, he specified that a balance has to be reached in such a situation. Make Wearing Masks And Sanitizing Hands Compulsory In Courts On the intervention made by Justice Reddy on the issue of increasing number of covid-19 cases in the country, Adv. Vikas Singh submitted that wearing of masks and sanitization of hands can be made compulsory for lawyers appearing in physical courts. The suggestion came after Singh submitted that most of the positive cases in the National Capital were due to the carelessness of people on the streets not wearing masks. “Now look how the situation has worsened on the streets. People are not wearing masks. People are not even sanitizing their hands. We should have open hearings with masks compulsory and we can do this on miscellaneous days. On regular day, you may have regular matters. If someone knows his matter will not come till 12, you will not have to come to the Court.” Singh submitted. Non Consultation With The Bar Association While Formulating SOP, SOP ‘parachuted’ at the Bar Senior Advocate Vikas Singh went ahead to argue that the Bar Association was not at all consulted or heard while the concerned SOP was issued. According to Singh, if 99% problem with the SOP lies on the side of the Bar, then the Bar should be deciding the contents of the SOP. “Ultimately if 99% problem is on this side, then we should be deciding this. It is not that we lawyers are not discussed with at all.” Singh submitted. “I am here today for quashing of the SOP. As a President of Bar, I have not been called for a meeting for the last 16 days. And if I cant be heard, if the Chief Justice or Judges Committee doesn’t have the time to hear me, and if my views are irrelevant for the purpose of this SOP, then I do not want to say anything. In such a case, this is a close door for me. The SOP was never placed before us. It has been straight away parachuted at the Bar.” Singh argued. Opinion of Medical Experts “A Sham” While Justice SK Kaul highlighted that the Minutes of Meeting revealed that the opinions of medical experts were considered as far as the covid 19 situation is concerned, Singh called these opinions a sham after citing the example of Bihar elections which were conducted in October last year. “They are a sham. Whole Bihar elections were done in October at a time when the covid 19 pandemic was at its peak. Here 2000 voters were not allowed to do physical voting. In such case, your lordships may shut this institution for us.” Singh argued.Furthermore, Singh also argued that when the operations of Airports and Cinema Halls are allowed to function at full swing currently, then the Court should also consider opening itself for physical functioning. “There are airports which are physically functioning, people are sitting beside each other for 2 or 3 hours. If that is not affecting the positivity rate, then why can’t we have the same here?” Singh submitted. At this juncture, Justice SK Kaul remarked “There are different issues being debated. If there are some areas in the SOP which are workable, then the committee should look into it. These are all administrative issues. We will note some of the aspects and say that appropriate post discuss this with Judges Committee and come back to us on suggestions. The only solution is to have a discussion with the committee.” Background of the Plea Supreme Court of India had issued a SOP dated 5th March, directing resumption of hybrid court hearings from 15th March. Several directions were also issued regarding its functioning in consideration of the ongoing Covid 19 pandemic and suggestions given by the Bar Associations. A pilot scheme was therefore devised for hearing cases in the hybrid manner on an experimental basis. According to the scheme, the final hearing and regular matters listed on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays will be heard in the hybrid mode, after consideration of the number of parties in a matter and the limited capacity of the Court rooms. However all other matters, including those listed on Mondays and Fridays will continue to be heard through video -conferencing mode. Later, the SCBA decided to not accept the said SOP as it was prepared without taking into confidence the Bar, despite the assurance given to them by CJI Bobde in the meeting held on March 1st 2021. The plea therefore stated that in the meeting of the Executive Committee of the SCBA with the CJI held on March 1, it was assured that the needful would be done by the Registry expeditiously taking into consideration the suggestions given by the Executive Committee. However, it is claimed, that the impugned SOP has been issued “unilaterally” by the Registry. The plea further submitted that there is general feeling in the Bar that for the last few years, the Supreme Court Registry has been issuing Circulars without taking the Bar into confidence, even though such circulars directly affect the Lawyers practicing. It was also stated that a large number of urgent matters are going unheard because of the peculiar system of listing, i.e. sending an email to the Mentioning Registrar giving the reasons for urgency. The Association has also said that most of the High Courts, including the Delhi High Court, have either started holding Physical Courts or are in the process of starting Physical Courts, and it is high time that like every other institution, the Supreme Court also restores normalcy and begins physical hearings with adequate precautions like temperature check at entry points, wearing of masks and maintenance of social distancing.Next Storylast_img read more

He’s George C. Wallace and ‘Big Jim’ Folsom all rolled into one. At first, Trump was a fad but he’s not fading. He’ll get 35 to 40 percent of Alabama’s votes.”Hooper agreed with his longtime friend and said he’s often asked, “Perry O., what for?” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Harold Reddock was on hand for the Trump Stump Bus visit in Troy.Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump’s tour bus pulled into downtown Troy around 10 a.m. Thursday.

But she’s learned that what he says makes a lot of sense. Now she’s one of his biggest supporters.”While some voters are concerned that Trump is too vocal and talks too tough, Hooper said the United States needs a “Mean Joe Green in the White House.”The Trump tour bus belongs to Tommy Shaw of Elmore County who said Donald Trump is the presidential candidate who can “Make America Great Again.”He predicted that Trump will get 44 percent of the Alabama vote on March 1.“We’ll travel the length and breadth of this state helping him get it,” Shaw said. “I call him Donald right now.

Boy with cancer who watched dogs from hospital window surprised with corgi ‘dream dog’

first_imgiStock(CHICAGO) — Amid chemotherapy, radiation and a 26-hour long surgery to fight cancerous tumors, 12-year-old Johnny Martin only wanted to talk about one thing.“He would talk about [corgis] to everyone,” Michelle Boyer, Johnny’s mother, told Good Morning America.The seventh-grader from Joliet, Illinois, just outside of Chicago, wanted nothing more than a corgi to call his own.In June 2018, Johnny was diagnosed with desmoplastic small round cell tumors. After suffering a severe stomach ache that stripped him of his appetite and made his belly protrude for weeks, Boyer knew that her son was sick, but she didn’t expect what illness was to come.Doctors didn’t catch Johnny’s cancer diagnosis until his third hospital visit — but this time it was during a visit to the emergency room.“When [the emergency room doctor] came in to tell us, she was already in tears before she was even able to get a word out. That’s how severe it was,” Boyer said.During his first inpatient stay — which lasted for over two months — Boyer said that Johnny liked to look out the window to a park down below where people would jog and walk their dogs. Although she had already been looking to add another dog to the family for years, Boyer noticed that with his new view, Johnny started to up the ante in his quest for his favorite corgi puppy.“He would always just come back around, ‘Yeah that would be great mom, but so would a little puppy,’” Boyer said.Johnny’s love and chatter about his “dream dog” caught the attention of a hospital social worker who submitted his wish for a puppy to Little Wish Foundation.Liz Niemiec, the founder of Little Wish Foundation, told Good Morning America that since 2010, the foundation has worked with children’s hospitals across the country to grant wishes under $1,000 that will bring “immediate joy” to pediatric cancer patients. One of their specialties is giving kids their dream dogs.“Whenever we get a puppy request, it’s extra special. … We were super excited and all over it,” Niemiec said.Puppy requests mean a lot not only to the foundation, but also to Niemiec personally. She started the foundation when she was 16 after her friend Max died of cancer. His last wish was for a puppy.Last Thursday, Niemiec and some volunteers from Little Wish Foundation presented Johnny with a black-and-white corgi puppy — a “Max wish,” as they call it.“She was so sweet. … She knew she was going to do a job and that was to make him happy,” Niemiec said.Niemiec asked Johnny of all the puppies he could have, why a corgi?“He’s like, ‘You know I just really like corgis. The Queen has a corgi,’” Niemic said.And who could argue with him? He later decided to name his new furry friend “Twinkie.”Both Niemiec and Boyer said the pair’s bond was instantaneous.“It was unbelievable — just the smile on his face and the way [Twinkie] just took to him immediately. You could tell that they had a special connection,” Boyer said.Boyer also said that she’s hoping her son, who turns 13 in December, will be a good dog parent.“I just kept thinking of, ‘Oh I hope he picks up all this dog poop,’” Boyer said with a laugh.She added that the gift of a new puppy not only fulfilled Johnny’s dream, which kept him motivated through over a year-and-a-half of treatment, but also gave much-needed inspiration to the whole family.“Those little tiny touches can be what a family hangs on to, to keep making it one more day,” Boyer said.At the moment, Johnny is still undergoing chemotherapy, but he is “doing well,” according to his mother.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
