And, as leaders in a predominantly white denomination, our responses are all too familiar.We write letters and make public statements. We hold vigils and pray for reform. We urge our clergy and people to become better educated concerning the realities of institutional racism and implicit bias. We reach out to black community leaders and express our sorrow and our solidarity.Then, gradually, we get busy with other things, until the next murder, the next video, the next spasm of racial violence, when we repeat the cycle.And nothing changes.We are heartbroken and angered by this pattern, by our complicity in it, above all by the thought that we might let this moment pass us by without responding with vigor, zeal and persistence to its challenge.We are determined, with God’s help, not to let this happen again. And yet, we need the participation of our communities in Christ to join in the movement of transforming our society with its sinful way of oppression, into Jesus’ loving, liberating and life-giving Way of Love. Our baptismal promises compel us to act.As bishops of Province III of the Episcopal Church, we resolve:To seek, first, the guidance and wisdom of people of color as we look for ways to dismantle racism in our dioceses.To formulate a plan, each in our context, to build relationships with leaders in the black community offering our support, committing to partnership, and working together to address racial injustice in our localities.To offer ongoing support to leaders in communities of color, local politicians and local law enforcement, in building a healthy culture in our police departments, ensuring safety for all our citizens and fostering trust between police and people in all our neighborhoods.To name the reality of systemic racism in our own dioceses and local contexts, and to recognize and address the white privilege embedded in our Episcopal Church culture.To be fervent in prayer for the coming of the day when all of God’s children are free.In all of this, we pledge ourselves to the work of overcoming the sin of racism. We ask for the prayers of our fellow bishops, and of all the people of God, that this resolve may remain strong for as long as it takes to bear fruit. May God help us all.Faithfully in Christ,The Rt.

Edinburgh Culture Fund to benefit 10 arts organisations Tagged with: arts Funding Scotland The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo and City of Edinburgh Council have announced this year’s beneficiaries of the city’s Culture Fund.Ten arts organisations in Edinburgh will benefit from a share of £50,000 from the city’s fund in 2018, which is supported through a pilot partnership launched last year between the City of Edinburgh Council and The Royal Edinburgh Military Tattoo, which announced it would give out £1m to arts and services charities last year.The beneficiaries, announced 22 January, are Nutshell Theatre, Magnetic North, Drake Music Scotland, Creative Electric, Tin Crate, Tortoise in a Nutshell, DanceBase (National Centre for Dance), Curious Seed, Art Walk Porty and Imaginate.Each project will receive funding to support the costs of new work development during 2018. The grants were made possible through the support of the Tattoo, which made a contribution to the Council’s pre-existing Fund as part of its £1m contribution to various arts and service charities. Since it began in 1950, the Tattoo has donated more than £10M to charitable causes.Beneficiary Nutshell Theatre will receive a grant of £7,968 towards the creation of a new community theatre production, ‘Come Bowling’, developed by award-winning Edinburgh playwright Morna Pearson. Magnetic North has been granted £5,000 to develop ‘Lost in Music’, a new piece of music-theatre for family audiences in collaboration with North Edinburgh Arts Centre.Councillor Donald Wilson, Culture and Communities Convener for the City of Edinburgh Council, said:“It is no secret that local authorities are operating in a climate of reduced public funding, yet this unique partnership with the Tattoo has enabled us to boost the level of support on offer from the Council to the city’s emerging artists. We are very thankful for the Tattoo’s generous charitable support and excited to see such a vibrant range of artistic activity in the city.” 181 total views, 1 views today Advertisement 182 total views, 2 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 Melanie May | 23 January 2018 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis5 About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

In an unprecedented move, the State Board of Elections decertified Baltimore city primary election results on May 12 until it can conduct a thorough investigation. The announcement followed protests by community activists who pointed out widespread inconsistencies and voter suppression.The Rev. C.D. Witherspoon, president of the Baltimore chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference and an activist with the People’s Power Assembly, stated, “We have vigorously protested voter suppression in this election and attempts by the 1% and powerful to suppress the voices of the voters in this majority Black city, particularly those who live in the Black and poorest voter precincts.”Statement from candidatesAndre Powell and Sharon Black, unaffiliated socialist candidates and members of Workers World Party, issued this statement on the recent revelations of inconsistencies and voter suppression in the Baltimore primary election:“Andre Powell for Mayor and Sharon Black for City Council President join with Voters Organized for the Integrity of City Elections and other community groups in condemning recent voter suppression and the corruption and incompetence of the present election board.“At a May 5 community hearing at the Sharon Baptist Church, we heard evidence of inconsistencies and voter suppression which included missing thumb drives of up to eight voter districts — one thumb drive has still not been recovered; inadequate training of judges; breaking of protocol on the sequence of how votes are turned in and delivered; voters being inappropriately turned away at the polls; and, most egregious of all, the turning away of newly registered voters who qualify to vote under the new state law that allows formerly incarcerated felons to vote.“Our protest is centered not on individual candidates, but on the rights of the people of Baltimore!“This is not about [Maryland state senator and mayoral candidate] Catherine Pugh or [former mayor and current mayoral candidate] Sheila Dixon or, for that matter, any other candidate. We are both unaffiliated candidates who must collect signatures to qualify to be listed in the November election. Can we ourselves trust the certification process?“Do we need to call on representatives of the Venezuelan government to come to Baltimore to act as observers?“While we contend that the Baltimore, Maryland and national elections are a sham and are rigged in general in favor of the 1% — that huge amounts of money and power determine the outcome in the majority of cases — we nevertheless feel it is critical to not only defend voter rights but to expand them. It is why we, as working-class and poor people’s candidates, are fighting to be on the ballot. It is also why we rigorously protest voter suppression and corruption in the recent Baltimore city elections, as revealed at the community hearing.“African Americans, Latinos/as, women and poor people fought and in many cases died for the right to vote. There was a time when only rich white men who owned property could vote.“Our campaign believes that Baltimore needs more democracy, not less. This includes lowering the voter age to 16 to empower the youth, and extending voting rights to our sisters and brothers behind bars and to undocumented workers.“We feel that real democracy means more than just being able to vote on a few token politicians every four years, but about deciding everything from who your boss is to the police commissioner and the police that walk your streets, the school board and much more. Ultimately, it means that you have control over your community and your life.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Amroussia writes for El Badil (Alternative), a banned newspaper that supports the Communist Party of Tunisian Workers, which is also banned.“The authorities want to silence all the dissidents who are disseminating information about the wave of popular unrest in Gafsa,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Amroussia is a source of irritation for the authorities and they want to make him shut up. How far will they go with their mental and physical harassment?”Amroussia told Reporters Without Borders he was alarmed by the harassment, but he added: “I fear silence even more.”The police harassment of Amroussia follows the publication of articles on the El Badil website about the tension in the Gafsa mining region. Amroussia helped to publicise the wave of protest in the region in January 2008 and the ensuing crackdown the following June.Like many other journalists and human rights activists in Gafsa, Amroussia was barred from the courthouse on 14 May for the start of the trial of seven youths who were arrested for staging a sit-in Gafsa. A second hearing is due to be held on 21 May.Amroussia was physically attacked by six police officers including Gafsa police chief Sami Yahyaoui while meeting with the wife of one of the Gafsa protest leaders in a public place on 15 May.A group of police officers, including Gafsa deputy police chief Mohammed Yousfi, publicly insulted him on 16 May and warned him that he could be killed if he did not stop covering developments in the mining region.Unrest erupted in Gafsa in January 2008 after the Gafsa Phosphate Company, the region’s main employer, announced the results of a recruitment competition in which favouritism and loyalty to the ruling party were clearly much more important factors than competence. It sparked the biggest wave of protests in Tunisia since Ben Ali became president in 1987. News December 26, 2019 Find out more November 11, 2020 Find out more
kali9/iStock(AUBURN, Ala.) — A suspected gunman is in custody after an Auburn, Alabama, police officer was shot dead and two fellow officers were hurt, the local police chief said. The three officers were met with gunfire while responding to a “domestic disturbance” at the Arrowhead mobile home park Sunday night, Auburn Police Chief Paul Register said at a news conference.The two injured officers are expected to recover, Register said. “This is probably the worst day of my time here. Words cannot express the loss,” the chief said. “We’re just trying to be there with our officers and those families right now.”The shooting sparked an overnight manhunt for the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Grady Wayne Wilkes, Register said. Wilkes was taken into custody on Monday morning, according to Auburn University Campus Safety.Wilkes had not been on the radar of law enforcement, Register said. The officers’ names have not yet been released.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
The Dirty Dozen: executive derailersOn 1 Nov 2002 in Personnel Today Comments are closed. Related posts:No related photos. Previous Article Next Article Executive derailers are personal traits that can cause executives to fail,even when they have the necessary knowledge and experience, and appear to havethe right skills and motivation for the job. As leaders move into more senior positions with broader responsibility andaccountability, these personal characteristics inevitably have a greaterimpact. Derailers appear when an executive overuses a strength, such as whenhigh work standards cross the line and become over-critical and perfectionistbehaviours, when assertiveness becomes argumentativeness, or whenself-confidence taken to extremes is seen as arrogance. Sometimes derailers do not derive from strengths. They may be slightlynegative traits that have little impact at operational level, but can createmassive organisational ripples once a person is in a strategic leadership role.An example might be the moody business unit head who, when promoted, becomesthe unpredictable director and whose behaviour helps generate a culture ofuncertainty and blame. Recognised derailer types Aloof Generally imperceptive, they may notunderstand the reactions of others to their own behaviour and are likely tohave poor insightArrogant Overly self-assured, theymay overestimate their own abilities, seem self-absorbed or inconsiderate(perhaps bruising others’ egos), or be perceived as too independent (ie, notneeding or valuing others)Cautious Indecisive, toodeliberate, adverse to risk or reluctant to take unusual or unconventionalactions. They can miss opportunities tocapitalise on good ideasDependent Needing praise or reassurance, theymight also be compliant or conforming. They often avoid confrontation and taking unpopular standsDistrustful Argumentative, sceptical, tense,suspicious, even paranoid, They tend to focus on protecting their own interestsand challenge authorityEccentric Creative and different even to thepoint of seeming ‘odd’, they can react badly when their judgement is challengedDramatic May fail because peers andpeople who report directly to them resent their tendency to monopoliseattention or take credit for others’ contributionsMischievous Impulsive, impatient, unpredictableand even overly-imaginative. They are unable to learn from mistakes and maytake ill-advised risksPassive/aggressive Seen as overly calm and co-operative, buttend to be privately irritable, resentful, stubborn or unco-operative – whichcomes out into the open when they are under stressPerfectionist Often controlling and demanding.People often resent their level of meddling and attention to detail. They are prone to miss opportunities to becomemore strategic because they get caught up in tactical minutiae Volatile They have difficultywith controlling their emotions, are moody, and quick to erupt in anger. Theyfail to express emotions appropriately, and often have short attention spans.They often have a history of unstable job relationshipsLowtolerance Focusedtactically rather than strategically. They for ambiguity often have difficulty stepping up to increased complexity or ambiguity,as well as focusing on the future versus the presentSource: DDI based on theirresearch with Hogan and Hogan
After six great performances from rock and roll icons over three packed nights, fans certainly left Desert Trip smiling. Check out a few more videos from The Who & Roger Waters’ final night, as well as their full setlists below.The Who: Roger Waters: Classic rock fans were treated to two amazing performances last night, as Desert Trip came to a close with sets from The Who and Roger Waters. Each artist dove into their repertoires, bringing out hit songs from all eras of their tenure. Any rock music appreciator was certain to be singing along the whole time, basking in the powerful music that both The Who and Pink Floyd have shared over the years.The night started with The Who, fronted by founding members Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend. With a stellar backing band that includes bassist Pino Palladino, drummer Zak Starkey (son of Ringo Starr), keyboardist John Bundrick and rhythm guitarist Simon Townshend (the younger brother of Pete), The Who seemed to lock in early with their earliest hit, “I Can’t Explain.” The show took fans on a saga through the band’s career, including segments of songs from the band’s two rock operas, Quadrophenia and Tommy. They ended with two of their most energetic and well-known songs, “Baba O’Riley” and “Won’t Get Fooled Again.”Watch those two final songs below, courtesy of Fake Fan. Next up was Roger Waters, who had been warming up for Desert Trip with setlists spanning the career of Pink Floyd. His performance at Desert Trip followed suit, opening with the famed “Speak To Me/Breathe” introduction of Dark Side Of The Moon. Waters would ultimately play the entirety of Dark Side during his performance, excluding the instrumentals “On The Run” and “Any Colour You Like”, mixed in with other classic numbers through the band’s career. He played the majority of Wish You Were Here and Animals, as well as tracks from Meddle, A Saucerful Of Secrets and, of course, The Wall.Watch some Dark Side highlights, courtesy of Fake Fan on YouTube.
