Rev. Gladstone B. “Skip” Adams III[Episcopal Church in South Carolina press release] Leaders of The Episcopal Church in South Carolina have nominated the Rt. Rev. Gladstone B. “Skip” Adams III as the next provisional bishop for the diocese, calling him to South Carolina as he prepares to retire as bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Central New York.The Standing Committee has called a special convention for Sept. 10 at Grace Church Cathedral in Charleston, where delegates will vote on installing Adams as the successor to Bishop Charles G. vonRosenberg.Adams was the unanimous choice of the Standing Committee, said the committee’s president, the Rev. Jean McGraw. The nomination follows a four-month search process and interviews with several potential nominees, coordinated with help from Bishop Clay Matthews of the Episcopal Church’s Office of Pastoral Development.Bishop vonRosenberg, who has served as provisional bishop for three-and-a-half years, announced in January that he would be retiring after his 2015-2016 calendar of episcopal visitations concluded this month. McGraw said the Standing Committee has asked him to remain in office until his successor takes office, and vonRosenberg has agreed to do so.“We are looking forward to welcoming Bishop Skip to lead us into the next chapter in our life as Episcopalians in this diocese,” McGraw said. “He has the gifts and skills to help us continue building on the strong foundation we have created together under the leadership of Bishop vonRosenberg.”“I am excited by the opportunity to serve the people of the Episcopal Church in South Carolina,” Adams said. “Seeking to be as openhearted as possible to the Holy Spirit’s movement, I said to the Standing Committee that this seems like a call from God. I was greatly energized by our conversations and believe that working together in Christ we will build on the good work already being done by God’s people in South Carolina. I also want to say how grateful I am to Bishop vonRosenberg for the excellent leadership he has offered.”Adams, 63, is retiring later this year as the 10th bishop of Central New York, where he has served for the last 15 years. He had announced in March 2015 his plans to retire from that post, and the search for the 11th bishop is under way. In announcing his retirement, Adams said he planned to be “available to the Church in any way that God’s Spirit may call forth.” (Read Bishop Adams’ letter here)Based in Liverpool, New York, the Diocese of Central New York has 81 congregations and some 13,000 members.The South Carolina diocese, which covers the eastern half of the state, consists of 31 parishes, missions and worshiping communities and has an estimated 7,000 members. vonRosenberg was elected at a special Diocesan Convention in January 2013 that was called to reorganize the diocese after a breakaway group and the majority of the congregations announced they had left the Episcopal Church.“I have known Skip Adams as a fellow bishop for some years,” said vonRosenberg. “His experience, as well as his gifts for ministry, will serve him and the diocese well in the months and years to come.  I look forward to offering him my assistance in facilitating his transition from Central New York to The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.”Adams was consecrated in October 2001. A native of Baltimore, Maryland, he graduated from Towson University in 1976. In 1980 he earned his Master of Divinity at Virginia Theological Seminary and was ordained in 1980. He went on to serve in churches in New York, Virginia, New Hampshire and Maryland.During his time in Central New York he worked toward a vision for a diocese of Episcopalians becoming a more deeply faithful people, with all involved in helping to realize a 21st-century vision for the Church.He enjoys fly-fishing and fly-tying, reading, music of all kinds, camping and canoeing. He is interested in the church and people in El Salvador (the companion Diocese of Central New York), environmental and social issues. Adams’ wife, Bonnie Adams, is a registered nurse, and they have three adult children: Peter, Stephen, and Emily.

I was there at VTS when Larry came to talk to you about coming to St. Peter’s, and then when you were ordained to the priesthood. It’s been a very long time, and we lost touch somewhere along the line. South Carolina is fortunate to have you there, and I am sure that New York is sorry that you are retiring. I remember the night you had to go to the E.D. for sutures when the door got closed on you at Claggett! Your small family and I were sharing one of the cottages there on that middle high youth group retreat. Peter was just an infant and was fussy all night. Then I couldn’t figure out how to work the hot water in the shower and took a freezing cold one only to have you and Bonnie explain to me how the in-line water heater worked the next morning. It seems impossible that we are now “senior citizens” and that you have three grown children. It was so wonderful to have those years with you and Bonnie in Ellicott City (I remember supper at your apartment and her wonderful turkey divan), which seems like just yesterday although more than 30 years ago. You were a blessing to us then as I know you continue to be to the church at large and shortly the Diocese of South Carolina. Keeping you and your family in my prayers and hoping our paths cross again soon. Rector Martinsville, VA Rector Pittsburgh, PA Rector Bath, NC June 30, 2016 at 7:44 pm My congratulations and prayers are with the Episcopal Church in South Carolina and Bishop Skip. I served under his pastoral care in CNY for six years and know him to be a spiritual healer, kind in his administration of the Diocese of CNY, a wonderful listener, a role model for his people and a deeply spiritual man! South Carolina will be blessed by Bishop Sip and Bonnie’s presence. I wish him well and will keep him frequently in my prayers as he undertakes this new Mission in God’s Holy Church!

Located on a horse ranch in Sun Valley, Idaho, this simple pool pavilion appears to float in a natural clearing along the Big Wood River. The structure takes advantage of views of the aspen and cottonwood forest, a picturesque nearby horse pasture and the Saddle Mountains in the distance. While designed to function primarily as a pool house, the structure can also function as a guesthouse.Save this picture!site planThe exposed structure of the pavilion, a modern “pole barn,” captures the simplicity of other utilitarian structures within this agricultural landscape. Floating within the building’s large framework are wood-skinned boxes that conceal a bathroom, shower and storage closet. Enclosing the main living room on two sides are large sliding glass walls that retract to create an open-air shed that anchors the adjoining pool deck. When fully open, the pavilion welcomes cooling breezes with its corrugated steel roof overhang providing shade to the outdoor deck space. In the winter, the pavilion can be enclosed to create an intimate retreat.

Bigot Trump’s real crimes

first_imgLet us count the crimes the current U.S. president has committed against the working class and all the oppressed masses.His campaign vilified Mexicans and other Central American migrants and refugees, calling them gangsters and rapists. In office, he shut down legal asylum, jailing migrants and separating parents from children, and restricted entry for Muslims.All his life, Trump wore his misogyny openly, boasting of groping women. In office he appointed misogynist judges to federal courts and even the Supreme Court.Long before he ran for office, Donald Trump waged a racist campaign against the Central Park 5, Black and Latinx youths railroaded to jail on false accusations of raping a jogger, who were finally exonerated. In office, he railed against “s–​thole countries,” all of which were countries in Africa or inhabited by people of African descent. Among other things, this president has insulted people with disabilities for their disability, has tried to bar trans people from the military, and with all the above has committed grave crimes against the working and oppressed masses.Yet the charges that the Democratic Party and various ruling-class sectors have attempted to use against this president have been those most isolated from the working class and people facing oppression. First, they investigated POTUS’s relations with the Russian president, attempting to link him with aiding Trump’s election. That failed.Now the impeachment charges involve Trump’s attempt to use a U.S.-installed Ukrainian regime against Biden, one of the more likely Democratic candidates for president next year.The first year of the Trump administration brought smiles to the faces of the ruling class as he cut taxes for the rich and the corporations and opened up new areas of the Earth to the wanton exploitation of natural resources. Now they are smiling less. Business is shaky, and the boast to “make [U.S.] America great again” has cost the U.S. strategically and economically.Impeachment seems possible, perhaps also to Trump, who exploded against those Democrats attacking him. In his usual blatantly racist style, he called those Democrats heading the House investigation against him “savages,” singling out Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and the rest of “the Squad,” plus Adam Schiff and Jerrold Nadler — four women of color and two Jewish men. The president also hinted that his impeachment might bring on a civil war.These verbal crimes are worthy of a mass mobilization to get rid of the president. But what’s really needed is not a legal maneuver that replaces blatant Trump with subservient Mike Pence, but one that sweeps out the whole racist, bigoted, money-grubbing gang.

Freedom of information still under threat after Xi Jinping’s installation

first_imgNews Hu’s interrogators questioned him about the visit that he and other dissidents paid to the home of Liu Xia, the wife of jailed Nobel peace laureate Liu Xiaobo, in December. Liu Xia is herself also under house arrest and, to visit her, Hu had to elude the police normally stationed outside her home. Liu Xiaobo is serving an 11-year jail sentence he received in 2009.Hu was also interrogated about comments he recently posted online criticizing China’s new leaders. Hu is one of the 100 leading intellectuals who signed an open letter to the National People’s Congress in February calling for Liu Xiaobo’s release.The police refused to let Hu go to hospital, despite his various injuries and despite his need for regular medical treatment for hepatitis. They told him he would have to remain under house arrest until 17 March, the last day of the National People’s Congress session.China is one of the countries classified by Reporters Without Borders as “Enemies of the Internet” and is ranked 173rd out of 179 countries in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index.

Follow the news on China News Reporters Without Borders notes that Xi Jinping spoke of a “Chinese dream’ in his address to the National People’s Congress on the final day. He said: “The Chinese dream is the dream of the people. We must realize it by closely depending on the people. We must incessantly bring benefits to the people.”The media freedom organization urges China’s new president to keep his promises by allowing his fellow citizens to enjoy free access to news and information, and to new generation media.“During the attempts to censor Nanfang Zhoumo’s New Year message, journalists and Internet users demonstrated their ability to take effective action, in both the way their drew attention to the censorship and the way they circumvented it,” Reporters Without Borders said.“Nonetheless, the latest events do not herald any change in policies or methods by the Chinese authorities. On the contrary, they have demonstrated that control of news and information inside the country and abroad continues to be a major priority.”Reporters Without Borders added: “We are very concerned about both the increase in aggressive behaviour towards the foreign media and the severity with which the police continue to crack down on netizens.”Mark Stone, a reporter with British 24-hour TV news channel Sky News, and his cameraman were arrested while doing a live report from Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on 15 March. He had obtained permission to do a report from there, but the police accused him of not visibly displaying his accreditation and not having his passport on him.Stone said the police intervened when he referred to the 1989 pro-democracy demonstrations in the square, which were crushed with considerable loss of life. Stone and his cameraman were taken to a police station before being released. to go further A crew with German TV station ARD consisting of reporter Christine Adelhardt, two other German employees and two Chinese employees were pursued and attacked on 27 February by two men in a car who broke the windscreen of their vehicle with a baseball bat.They had just been filming a report on urbanisation in Da Yan Ge Zhuang, a village in Hebei province. In China, use of land is a source of frequent disputes between residents and local officials, who are often accused of corruption. A witness of the attack said one of the cars involved in the chase belong to the village’s Communist Party secretary. There was no let up in surveillance and harassment of netizens between the Communist Party’s 18th Congress in December and the sessions of the National People’s Congress and the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference, held from 5 to 17 March and 3 to 18 March respectively. Hu Jia, a dissident and blogger who was jailed from 2008 to 2011 and who has been under a form of house arrest since 26 February, was summoned to the Public Security Bureau in the Beijing district of Tongzhou on 14 March on a charge of “inciting public disorder.”After reporting to the authorities, Hu was insulted and hit during eight hours of interrogation at Zhongchang police station, sustaining injuries to his face. Since then, he has also had lower back pain. China: Political commentator sentenced to eight months in prisonlast_img read more

A single bench of Justice Pushpa Ganediwala made the observation while modifying the order a sessions court that held a 39-year-old man guilty of sexual assault for groping a 12- year- old- girl and removing her salwar. The court has now sentenced the man under Section 354 IPC (outraging a woman’s modesty) to one year imprisonment for the minor offence(Satish v State of Maharashtra). Sexual assault under section 8 of the POCSO Act would attract a minimum punishment of three years as compared to outraging of a woman’s modesty under section 354 of the IPC, which attracts a minimum punishment of only a year. Both the offenses carry a maximum imprisonment of five years. “Considering the stringent nature of punishment provided for the offence(under POCSO), in the opinion of this Court, stricter proof and serious allegations are required. The act of pressing of breast of the child aged 12 years, in the absence of any specific detail as to whether the top was removed or whether he inserted his hand inside top and pressed her breast, would not fall in the definition of ‘sexual assault’.” The court held, adding, “The act of pressing breast can be a criminal force to a woman/ girl with the intention to outrage her modesty”, the Court added. The court interpreted the words “physical contact” in the definition of sexual assault to mean “direct physical contact- direct physical contact i.e. skin -to- skin contact with sexual intent without penetration.””Admittedly, it is not the case of the prosecution that the appellant removed her top and pressed her breast. As such, there is no direct physical contact i.e. skin to skin with sexual intent without penetration”, the order stated. Section 7 of the POCSO Act defines sexual assault as : Whoever, with sexual intent touches the vagina, penis, anus or breast of the child or makes the child touch the vagina, penis, anus or breast of such person or any other person, or does any other act with sexual intent which involves physical contact without penetration is said to commit sexual assault. “It is the basic principle of criminal jurisprudence that the punishment for an offence shall be proportionate to the seriousness of the crime”, the court held. According to the case of the prosecution on December 14, 2016, the accused, took the young girl to his house on the pretext of giving her a guava, pressed her breast and attempted to remove her salwar. At that point of time, the mother reached the spot and rescued her daughter. An FIR was registered almost immediately. The prosecution examined five witnesses, the mother, survivor, a neighbour who heard the child scream for her mother, and two police officers. The court held him guilty under sections Sections 354, 363(kidnapping) and 342(wrongful restraint) of the Indian Penal Code and Section 8 of the Protection of Children from Sexual Offences Act, 2012, (hereinafter referred to as POCSO Act). The High Court has held the man guilty under sections 342 and 354 of the IPC while acquitting him under section 8 of the POCSO Act.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment] Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

Chief Pete Tyler will retire after 27 years at Ithaca Police Department

first_img ITHACA, N.Y. – Ithaca Police Chief Pete Tyler has announced his last day at the Ithaca Police Department will be May 31 after two years as police chief and more than 27 years of service at the department.Tyler was promoted to chief in December 2017, after steadily climbing the ranks for more than two decades and serving as acting chief for about nine months following former Chief John Barber’s retirement. Tyler and Barber both joined IPD as rookie cops and shared a commitment to community engagement as the department’s leaders. Tyler first joined the police force in 1991.Tyler said he would describe his past two years at the department as “relentless.”“That’s what the job entails,” Tyler said.Along with his work at the IPD, Tyler has also served as a volunteer firefighter and EMT at the Dryden Fire Department and said he plans to continue that work after leaving the Ithaca Police Department. Tyler’s EMT experience was put into action recently after a serious car crash in Dryden. Tyler was the first to respond and administer aid.“My entire life has been service-oriented,” Tyler said. “I’m very proud of the fact that I’ve served both the Ithaca community and the Dryden community in those capacities for a very long time and I’ve met a lot of wonderful people along the way, had some really good, some really awful experiences as well. But it all has given me the experience leading up to the chief’s position. Hopefully, I have been able to lead by example.”Related: Ithaca welcomes new Police Chief Pete Tyler: ‘It’s history in the making today’Pete Tyler grilled burgers at the second annual community police barbecue at the Southside Community Center in 2016.

When he took the helm in 2017, he said he would work to serve the public and would prioritize training officers to use non-lethal defensive tactics to deescalate dangerous situations.Tyler said he made it clear to the interview committee and mayor that he was just planning to step in and fill a gap and was not a long-term solution. When Tyler officially retires, he said he is going to take a step back and enjoy a few months before jumping into something new. Tyler has not announced what job he will be taking after retirement.

Contact her at [email protected] and follow her on Twitter @bykelseyoconnor. More by Kelsey O’Connor When Tyler became acting chief, he pledged to staff a Community Action Team to improve community outreach. Almost two years later, the CAT team – which was approved by Common Council in 2014 – is still unstaffed, with the department claiming it requires extra personnel.Looking ahead, Tyler said the biggest issues moving forward in 2019 will be staffing, hiring and contractual issues, which he said: “let’s hope (is a) success story in 2019.” He also said the job of a police officer is always evolving. Five years ago, Tyler said they weren’t really talking about the mental health crisis or the opioid crisis, which are things that now affect everyday operations at the Ithaca Police Department.Ithaca Mayor Svante Myrick said he is grateful for Tyler’s service as chief and his decades-long career keeping Ithaca safe.“We’ll miss his talents inside the department – but his commitment to training and preparedness means that IPD will remain one of the best departments in the country,” Myrick said.Featured image: File Photo “Two years goes by quick, and I think that we’ve done good things and I think we’re set up to continue doing that. I just think that it’s somebody else’s turn, with new energy and maybe some new ideas to take the groundwork that we’ve maintained and maybe take a new look at some things,” Tyler said.Tyler said being police chief is challenging, and especially challenging to lead a police force “in a city that expects so much from its officers. The standard, in my opinion, is exceptionally high.”Svante Myrick swears in Pete Tyler in December 2017. (Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice) Svante Myrick swears in Pete Tyler in December 2017. (Kelsey O’Connor/Ithaca Voice)Tyler’s past few months as chief have been marked by tension between IPD and City Hall, as a union contract impasse continues and a request for additional officers was denied during 2018 budget negotiations.Tyler said the police department is dealing with a number of issues right now, including labor management.“They haven’t had a contract since 2011, which adds to a morale issue,” Tyler said. “And then we have staffing levels. We’re a very busy police department, exceptionally busy for the size and structure that we’re in currently. We offer a lot of extra services, community outreach, traffic, all these different things that our police department can do and we do it at a level that we feel is necessary — not a minimum standard, but an above average standard. And that’s how we approach things. … I don’t think that the city, the city being the people, understand how many things that officers are actually doing.”Chief of Police Pete Tyler announced today that he will be retiring later this spring. His last day of service will be May 31st. pic.twitter.com/7pR2z11Csp— Ithaca Police (@ithacapolice) January 29, 2019 Your Public Safety news is made possible with support from:last_img read more
