They will meet again in September 2016.The Ecumenical Patriarch has now concluded his visit to the Archbishop of Canterbury. It was announced today that Archbishop Justin has been invited to a conference next year at the Phanar – the home of Patriarch Bartholomew in Istanbul – to discuss the churches’ response to human trafficking.Click here to read the joint communiqué from Archbishop Welby and Patriarch BartholomewThe agreed text, In the Image and Likeness of God: A Hope-Filled Anthropology, is available to purchase from the Anglican Communion’s online shop.

Cities are considered to be one of the major reasons for the many environmental issues we have today. Studies show that cities emit 60% more carbon that thought, in fact they account for more than 70% of the global CO2 emissions. With our garden house project we would like to emphasize how much potential there is for urban gardens and for the creation of microclimates which could improve the living conditions within cities and slow global warming.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouSave this picture!© Charis SolomouThe integration of a singular house into the urban fabric is always a challenge but it can function in a positive way as a unifying element that may promotes urban continuity in a positive way.   In contrast with other many urban houses built to isolate themselves from the rest of the neighborhood erecting fences and various barriers our proposal aimed to form a physical continuation of the public green area that exists on the longest side of the plot. Save this picture!© Charis SolomouOur design seeks to establish a unified relationship between the neighborhood, the private ( the house) and the public green area. In this way urban elements such as building, street and public space are not treated as absolute activities in isolation but as one single homogeneous configuration.  Our house becomes part of  the park and the park is included in the house, in a sense the two are interrelated with  shared places such as the pedestrian pathway, the garden, the veranda , the door threshold ect. and are considered as elements of one big house-like city.  In this way our garden house helps to upgrade the quality of the urban fabric and at the same time seeks out to improve the biodiversity and thus reduce the carbon dioxide footprints in the city.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Charis SolomouCentral element of the house was planting of gardens on 60% of the plot on ground floor and promoting the use of green terrace on first floor. Bee- lawn was mostly planted on ground floor creating a friendly environment for bees helping thus to maintain the biodiversity. Studies show that 75% of the world’s food crops rely on bees.  The building is designed in two rectangular cubes with a green courtyard in-between them. The idea of the inner garden makes it hard to realize where the garden stops and the interior begins.Save this picture!© Charis SolomouSave this picture!Section C-CSave this picture!© Charis SolomouThe garden at the center is the main feature in the house around which the rest of the spaces organized and function.  The green seems to bisect the house from east to west; it flows deep into the interior, fills the unusable space under the staircase and escapes out to the other side of the house. All areas inside tend to concentrate on the outer spaces, the whole house becomes an in-between zone, a rich, tense interior but enjoyable at the same time improving thus the pleasure and comfort of the occupants. The 24m long run glazed doors on ground floor not only separate the spaces inside but when are open the whole house behaves as one single space connected by gardens.

Wall Street welcomes Trump

first_imgDid the super-racist, immigrant bashing, sexual predator Donald Trump becoming president alarm Wall Street? The day after the election the Dow Jones industrial average shot up 272 points.Why shouldn’t Wall Street welcome Trump? Speculators gambling in the world’s largest casino — the New York Stock Exchange — have embraced the lewd and vulgar casino owner.Historically, the U.S. financial center arose as the banker and broker for Southern slave masters. New York City operated a municipal slave market at Wall and Pearl streets for 51 years until 1762. (WNYC, April 14, 2015)Wall Street’s leading banker in the 1860s — August Belmont — opposed the Emancipation Proclamation of 1862 that freed slaves in areas controlled by the Confederacy.Financiers are not bothered by Trump losing the popular vote by 1.5 million. It’s profits, not democracy they’re concerned about.The Wall Street Journal sneered at complaints that Albert Gore beat George Bush by 500,000 votes in the 2000 election. The newspaper’s editorial page editor Robert Bartley claimed this didn’t matter since it resulted from “a surge in voter turnout” among “Blacks” and “union households.” According to Bartley, the vote against Bush “by and large represents recipients of government favors.” (Dec. 11, 2000)Trump’s plan to immediately deport millions of immigrants hasn’t stopped a long line of capitalist dignitaries from lining up to see the pig.Rounding up hundreds of thousands of families is reminiscent of the Nazi Gestapo or the Fugitive Slave Act in the 1850s. Deporting parents while their U.S.-born children are allowed to stay parallels Black families being broken up in slave auctions.Every exploiter a TrumpTrump is extremely dangerous but not unique. All the slumlords, sweatshop owners and home-foreclosing banksters are wannabe Trumps. Bosses all over have sexually harassed millions of women, or worse.There’s some Trump in every trigger-happy, pepper-spraying, nightstick- swinging racist cop.Ronald Reagan was just as grotesque as Trump 50 years ago. Calling Black people in Watts “mad dogs” didn’t stop him from being elected governor of California in 1966. (“The Metropolitan Frontier” by Carl Abbott)When hungry people lined-up for food packages provided as ransom during the 1974 kidnapping of millionaire heiress Patty Hearst, the California governor asked “whether there shouldn’t be an outbreak of botulism.” (Sarasota Journal, March 7, 1974)Like Trump this year, Reagan was endorsed by the Ku Klux Klan when he ran for president in 1980. Reagan deliberately started his campaign in Philadelphia, Miss., where three civil rights workers — James Chaney, Andrew Goodman and Michael Schwerner — had been murdered by the Klan.Reagan didn’t mention these Black and Jewish martyrs in his speech that day. Instead he called for “states’ rights” — the slogan of segregationists — blatantly appealing for racist votes.In 1986 Reagan nominated U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions for a federal judgeship in Alabama. Senators turned thumbs down after Thomas Figures, a Black assistant U.S. attorney, testified that Sessions repeatedly called him “boy.” Figures also said that Sessions “joked” that Klan members were “OK, until he learned that they smoked marijuana.” (CNN, Nov. 18)Just this week, Donald Trump nominated Sessions, now a U.S. senator from Alabama, to be U.S. attorney general in charge of enforcing the Voting Rights Act and other civil rights laws.Only the people will stop TrumpWith the exception of Fox News, most of the big capitalist media endorsed Hillary Clinton. But don’t expect these money bags to fight Trump. They’re rolling out a red carpet and hoping for more tax cuts.Among those making the pilgrimage to Trump Tower and groveling before the president-elect is former Secretary of State and Rockefeller family retainer Henry Kissinger. During the Watergate scandal in the 1970s, Kissinger moved secret State Department files to the Rockefeller family’s six-square-mile Pocantico Hills estate in Westchester County, N.Y., to protect the Richard Nixon White House gang.Kissinger’s visit is a sign that Donald Trump will be yet another Big Oil president.The New York Times has editorialized against the rumored nomination of Rudy Giuliani as Secretary of State. Giuliani is the face of police state reaction to the Black Lives Matter movement, and there is speculation he got the FBI to help swing the election.The Times pointed out that the former NYC mayor “enraged Black New Yorkers with his shockingly insensitive response to the fatal police shooting of Patrick Dorismond, an unarmed black man” in 2000. (Nov. 15) Actually Giuliani insulted a whole series of families whose daughters and sons were killed by his cops.But that didn’t prevent the Times from endorsing Giuliani for reelection in 1997.Forty-five years ago it was the “old money” of Philadelphia that installed the openly racist Frank Rizzo as mayor. The Philadelphia area is home to some of the oldest and wealthiest capitalist families. Their mansions fill the “Main Line” suburbs and include most of the Du Pont family estates.As the city’s police commissioner, Rizzo stripped arrested members of the Black Panther Party naked. He threatened Mumia Abu-Jamal at a news conference. In a bid for a third term in 1978 Rizzo urged people to “vote white.” (Wilmington, N.C., Star-News, Sept 23, 1978)Frank Rizzo was just Donald Trump with a badge and a much smaller bankroll. Both are proof that, as Malcolm X said, “You can’t have capitalism without racism.”Only the people can stop Trump. Millions must come to Washington, D.C., for the Jan. 20 counterinauguration and stay over for the Women’s March the next day.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Woman arrested for 1996 murder of baby girl found dead in trash bag in reservoir: Authorities

first_imgLarimer County Sheriffs Office(DENVER) — A 42-year-old woman posted $25,000 cash bond after she was arrested for the murder of a baby girl, who was found dead in a trash bag in a Colorado reservoir 23 years ago, authorities said.On Aug 24. 1996, authorities with the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a dead baby girl found by two 11-year-old boys in Horsetooth Reservoir, said Lt. Andy Josey, who was a lieutenant with the sheriff’s office at the time. The infant was found inside a plastic trash bag, authorities said. Her death was ruled asphyxia/suffocation by homicide, authorities said.Authorities gave the baby, who had been left in the “cold waters,” the nickname “Baby Faith,” Josey said at a Tuesday news conference.“She didn’t deserve to be left alone,” Josey said.Her identity and death went unsolved for years. Then in Nov. 2016, investigators decided to resubmit DNA evidence, according to the sheriff’s office.Authorities did not elaborate on exactly how the DNA was used, but they said in July 2019 investigators were able to narrow the search down to five people who had “a probability of being related to ‘Baby Faith.’”“Further research revealed four of those individuals were most probable to have information to advance the investigation,” according to a statement from the sheriff’s office.On Oct. 6, 2019, investigators interviewed three of those individuals, who all lived in Minnesota, authorities said. All three were excluded from being involved, authorities said.Investigators then met with the fourth individual in Maryland, authorities said.“Based on information obtained during the interview in Maryland, investigators determined Jennifer (Tjornehoj) Katalinich could have information pertaining to the ‘Baby Faith’ case,” according to a statement from the sheriff’s office. “Investigators met with Katalinich on October 18, 2019 and she agreed to speak with investigators.”A warrant was issued on Friday for Katalinich, 42, said authorities.Katalinich, of Erie, Colorado, surrendered on Tuesday and was booked on charges of first-degree murder and second-degree murder, according to the Larimer County Sheriff’s Office.Authorities on Tuesday would not say if Katalinich is believed to be Baby Faith’s mother. But Larimer County Sheriff Justin Smith said, “There is grief for the family that never knew of Baby Faith’s existence and there surely will be grief from the family of the accused.”Katalinich made a first court appearance Tuesday morning and is set to return to court in January, Larimer County Assistant District Attorney Mitch Murray said. She posted a $25,000 cash bond and has been released, authorities said. Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Effects of physical factors on the survival and growth of antarctic terrestrial algae

first_imgThe survival and growth of four genera of cyanobacteria and microalgae isolated from Antarctic fellfield soils were investigated. Survival of freezing and desiccation were studied by vital staining, and the effects of photon flux density (PFD) and temperature on growth rates were determined by direct counts of cultures maintained on a thermogradient bar. Monitoring of seasonal changes in environmental factors in a fellfield ecosystem demonstrated that the experiments were carried out under ecologically relevant conditions.The coccoid chlorophyte Planktosphaerella exhibited the highest growth rates under most conditions. Growth rates of the other species were similar to each other, although the diatom Pinnularia maintained near-maximum growth rates over a wider range of conditions than the filamentous cyanobacterium Phormidium or the filamentous chlorophyte Zygnema. Maximum growth of all species occurred at 15–20°C and no growth was observed at 0°C, indicating that there is little adaptation to growth at low temperature. Optimal PFD was generally 100–400 μmol m s and photoinhibition of growth occurred at a PFD significantly lower than that incident on the soil surface, even on cloudy days. Such results are consistent with the observation that the soil flora largely occurs beneath the surface of the soil where PFD is reduced.All species survived repeated 24 h freeze-thaw cycles, following an initial decline on the first cycle. Survival of desiccation differed markedly between species, from a few hours in Planktosphaerella to many weeks in Phormidium and Pinnularia, and is probably a major factor in the ability of these genera to colonize the fellfield soils.last_img read more

Equinor begins production from Utgard field in North Sea

first_img Image: Illustration of the Utgard field development Photo: courtesy of Equinor ASA. Equinor and its partners have started production from the Utgard field — located along the UK-Norway median line, in the North Sea — several months ahead of schedule.Originally slated to be brought on stream by the end of 2019, the Norwegian Petroleum Directorate (NPD) gave its consent to the partners to begin production from the offshore field last month.The gas and condensate field has been developed with an investment of 2.6bn Norwegian krone (£230m), which is 25% below the estimate of NOK3.5bn (£310m) given to the Norwegian authorities in 2016.Utgard gas and condensate field was discovered in 1982. In 2016, Equinor bought the UK portion of the discovery in order to complete the field development.It has been developed as a subsea tieback to the Sleipner field, which is operated by Equinor. The field comprises two wells from a subsea template tied back through a pipeline and an umbilical to the Sleipner field.The subsea template has been installed on the Norwegian part of the border, with one well on each side of the UK-Norway median line.Equinor UK and Ireland offshore senior vice president Arne Gürtner said: “Through Utgard, we are maximising economic recovery from the North Sea, and unlocking high-value, low-carbon intensity barrels in line with our strategy. We will continue to seek cross-border opportunities to add value on both sides of the border.”According to Equinor, the recoverable resources from Utgard are estimated at nearly 40 million barrels of oil equivalent (boe), while daily production on plateau is expected to be about 43,000boe.Equinor and its partners will remotely operate the Utgard field from the Sleipner field. At the Sleipner platform, the well stream from Utgard will be processed before dry gas is sent out to the market via the Gassled pipeline system, while liquids are transported through an existing pipeline to Kårstø where they will be exported to Europe.The Utgard field will also use the CO2 purification and storage facility at Sleipner.Stakeholders of the Utgard fieldEquinor has been operating Utgard with a total of 76.44% stake held by it and its UK subsidiary. The Norwegian oil and gas major is partnered by Lotos Exploration and Production Norge (17.36%) and KUFPEC Norway (6.20%) in the offshore gas and condensate field. Spread over the Norwegian-UK maritime border, the Utgard field has been developed with a total investment of £310m through a subsea tieback to the Sleipner fieldlast_img read more
