These ten places, representing some of America’s most significant sacred spaces, have earned entrance into a national grant-making program that is set to invest $1.9 million in their repair and restoration, the safeguarding of their physical legacies, and strengthening the value they contribute to their communities.“All ten are extraordinary places, with important architecture and consequential outreach,” said Bob Jaeger, President of Partners for Sacred Places. “Each project has been chosen because we believe they are poised for success and their projects will have a lasting impact on how these places serve their communities into the future. We look forward to working with each of them to preserve their buildings and make the most of them as assets for ministry and service.”Now in its fourth year, the National Fund for Sacred Places is operated by Partners for Sacred Places in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation. This year’s group of participants includes a National Historic Landmark; the only Baptist church in Louisiana led by a female pastor; and churches designed by famed architects Stanford White and John Russell Pope.“This year’s grant recipients are great examples of how congregations serve as centers of service, gathering and celebration,” said Paul Edmondson, President and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.  “The places protected through this grant program, from a Gothic Revival Church in South Carolina to a Buddhist temple in Hawaii, deserve to be protected and preserved for future generations.”Since its launch in 2016, the National Fund has drawn greater attention to the challenges and opportunities America’s faith groups face as they engage in community outreach. Between 6,000 and 10,000 sacred places close each year in the United States, and with them, important community programming.The National Fund began with nearly $14 million in grants from Lilly Endowment Inc. Since then, the National Fund has awarded planning grants, training and technical assistance to 54 congregations and organizations. To date, the program has awarded over $4.7 million in capital grants, ranging from $50,000 to $250,000, to community-serving congregations representing 17 faith traditions in 29 states and the District of Columbia.Grants assistance provided by the National Fund has not only helped congregations to preserve their sacred spaces but has helped them leverage more than $9.5 million in new funding for major building campaigns in their congregations and communities.In 2019 the program received more than $15 million in additional funding, to continue the program through 2024.This year’s applicants had to demonstrate the significance of their buildings’ religious architecture. The projects selected represent outstanding examples of Neoclassical, Gothic Revival, Spanish Colonial Revival, and Romanesque building styles. Applicants also had to identify a compelling restoration plan and outlined a capital campaign that detailed internal fundraising goals and strategies.The National Fund awardees for the 2019-20 program year are:National City Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) —  Washington, D.C.

2012 Census of Agriculture Forms in the Mail Soon

first_img Facebook Twitter Millions of Hoosier and American farmers are getting something in the mail other than Christmas cards this month. The 2012 Census of Agriculture surveys are being mailed soon and the National Agricultural Statistics Service would like you to treat that like the very important mail piece it is.“The questionnaires will go in the mail the last week of December,” Bob Bass at the NASS office in St. Louis told HAT, “and so they should arrive in farmers and ranchers mailboxes either late December or early January. And it’s very important that every farmer respond because that’s the opportunity to get a measure of agriculture on the lowest level, down to the county and down to the township within the county. We county the farms and measure agriculture completely every five years, and that’s why it’s so important that we get a true and accurate picture.”Five years ago 2.2 million farmers were counted so agriculture won’t see the new picture until February of 2014 since it will take all of next year to mine the new data. Farmer response is required by law and Bass says the ideal scenario is that all responses are received by this coming February 4th, about a 30-day window for filling out the form.“Not everybody gets theirs in in February so they have the opportunity to go online and report the information. They can fax it back and they can also complete it by mail and send it in. We do telephone follow-up for those that we don’t hear from and we try to make sure that every farm and ranch is counted.”The detailed Census data covers nearly every facet of U.S. agriculture including land use and ownership, production practices, expenditures and other factors that affect the way farmers do business.[audio:|titles=2012 Census of Ag]“The 2012 Census of Agriculture provides farmers with a powerful voice. The information gathered through the Census influences policy decisions that can have a tremendous impact on farmers and their communities for years to come,” said Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack. “I strongly encourage all farmers, no matter how large or small their operation, to promptly complete and return their Census, so they can voice to the nation the value and importance of agriculture.”Vilsack added that in addition to affecting policy decisions, Census information also influences community growth and development. Many companies review Census data when determining where to establish or expand their businesses, as well as where they can go for supplies of locally-produced food and agricultural products, which further emphasizes the importance of supplying accurate information. Information from the Census also is valuable to explain the many ways farming is important to urban or non-farming residents and decision-makers.“Along with their accomplishments as business men and women, farmers know about the challenges they face in their local areas,” said Vilsack. “Taking part in the Census is increasingly important to farmers and every community in America because it provides important information and helps tell the true story about the state of agriculture in the United States today.”All farmers and ranchers should receive a Census form in the mail by early January. Completed forms are due by February 4, 2013. Farmers can return their forms by mail or online by visiting a secure website, Federal law requires all agricultural producers to participate in the Census and requires NASS to keep all individual information confidential.For more information about the Census, visit or call 1-888-4AG-STAT (1-888-424-7828). The Census of Agriculture is your voice, your future, your responsibility.

Second shooting attack on journalist in less than two weeks

first_img March 13, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Second shooting attack on journalist in less than two weeks News Help by sharing this information Philippines: RSF and the #HoldTheLine Coalition welcome reprieve for Maria Ressa, demand all other charges and cases be dropped RSF_en Reporters Without Borders condemns the attempted murder of Fernan Angeles, a newspaper reporter whose beat includes covering the president. Angeles was seriously injured when he was shot six times near his home in the Manila suburb of Pasig on the evening of 11 March. He is the second journalist to be badly shot in less than two weeks.“We welcome the progress already made in the investigation and the identification of a suspect by the Philippine National Police, and we hope they will not rule the possibility of a link to the victim’s work as a journalist, as several sources close to the case suspect,” Reporters Without Borders said. “This attack is part of a general climate of violence affecting the media that is caused in part by mafia groups.“We reiterate our appeal to President Benigno Aquino’s government to establish an effective programme to combat armed networks. While combating impunity is the highest priority, thought must also be given to mechanisms for protecting journalists before they fall victim to violence. In view of the gravity of the situation, protecting the media must be a government priority.”According to Angeles’ wife, Gemma Angeles, the 41-year-old reporter was accosted at around 10 or 11 in the evening by several persons, who dragged him into an alley and gave him a beating. Then one of them shot him six times with a 45-calibre handgun. He was rushed to an intensive care unit in Pasig General Hospital, where he is now considered out of danger.Before losing consciousness, Angeles said he recognised his assailant and described him as someone with links to a “drug syndicate operating in Pasig City.” Angeles works for the Daily Tribune, a newspaper that often criticizes the government.The shooting attack on Angeles came just nine days after Radio Mindanao Network presenter Fernando Gabio was seriously wounded in a targeted shooing on 2 March in Iloilo City.

However it is made clear that the Rohingyas in Jammu, on whose behalf the application has been moved, shall not be deported unless the procedure prescribed for such deportation is followed”, the Court said.The Court has refused to order the release of nearly 150 Rohingyas detained in the holding centres in Jammu and allowed their deportation to their parent country as per the procedure of law.A bench comprising Chief Justice SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V Ramasubramanian passed the order in an application moved by Mohammad Salimullah in the Public Interest Litigation petition filed by him for protection of Rohingyas.Right not to be deported ancillary to Article 19(1)(e)In the short 6-page order, the Supreme Court observed that the right not to be deported is ancilliary to right to reside or settle in any party of the territory, which is guaranteed under Articel 19(1)(e) of the Constitution(a right available only to citizens).”It is also true that the rights guaranteed under Articles 14 and 21 are available to all persons who may or may not be citizens. But the right not to be deported, is ancillary or concomitant to the right to reside or settle in any part of the territory of India guaranteed under Article 19(1)(e)”.The Court also noted that India was not a party to the Refugee convention. The Court further said that it cannot comment upon the current happenings in Myanmar.”Two serious allegations have been made in reply of the Union of India.They relate to (i) the threat to internal security of the country; and (ii) thea gents and touts providing a safe passage into India for illegal immigrants,due to the porous nature of the landed borders. Moreover, this court has already dismissed I.A.No. 142725 of 2018 filed for similar relief, in respect of those detained in Assam”, the order further noted.Recap of argumentsDuring the hearing held on March 23, Advocate Prashant Bhushan, appearing for the applicant, had referred to the order passed by the International Court of Justice last year to highlight that Rohingyas faced genocidal threat there. He had also pointed out that Myanmar is at present governed by a Military government, which came into power. Therefore, sending Rohingyas – who had faced atrocities from the army even during the civilian rule- back to Myanmar when it is under a Military junta will endanger them, Bhushan had submitted.He had also placed reliance on the principle of non-refoulement, which forbids the expulsion of a refugee if there is a clear and certain danger of life in the origin country.Solicitor General Tushar Mehta had opposed to the application on behalf of the Union Government. The SG said that a similar application concerning Rohingyas in Assam was dismissed in 2018, and that the petitioner had suppressed that fact in the present application. The top law officer of the Union also submitted that deportation is done in accordance with the procedure established by law, and hence it cannot be held to be violative of right to life under Article 21 of the Constitution. The SG also disputed that Rohingya detainees were refugees and called them “illegal migrants”.”India cannot be a capital for all illegal migrants of the world”, the SG added.Senior Advocate Harish Salve, intervening on behalf of the J&K administration, argued that the principle of non-refoulement was not binding on the India Government as it has not signed the international treaties propounding the said principle.During the hearing, the CJI made oral observations acknowledging the threat faced by Rohingyas in Myanmar but added that the Court cannot do anything about it.”Possibly that is the fear that if they go back to Myanmar they will be slaughtered. But we cannot control all that”, CJI said. “We are not called upon to condemn or condone genocide. We are certain that there should be no genocide in earth”, the CJI had added during the hearing.Case Title : Mohammad Salimullah and Another versus Union of India and othersBench : CJI SA Bobde, Justices AS Bopanna and V RamasubramanianCitation : LL 2021 SC 202Click here to read/download the orderSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
