Photo: Egan Millard/Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service] The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted so many elements of society so quickly that it’s almost impossible to keep track. And while the world’s attention is focused on the immediate medical and economic crises, leaders from the United States government and The Episcopal Church are reminding Americans that, without even leaving their homes, they can ensure the success of a critically important operation: the 2020 U.S. census.The timing of the once-a-decade count of all Americans – documenting where they live as of April 1 – is extraordinarily unfortunate, but it is even more important in light of the pandemic. The census affects Americans’ daily lives in many direct and indirect ways, particularly through the distribution of congressional seats and funding for 132 federal programs. The Episcopal Church is an official partner of the census and is urging all Americans to submit the data for their household, which is required by law.Watch Presiding Bishop Michael Curry’s message on the importance of the 2020 census:Census participation is one of the many projects that the church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations is working on. Since early March, the office has produced a weekly series on how the census impacts various facets of American life. Census data is used in the distribution of hundreds of billions of dollars in federal funding for health services like Medicare and Medicaid; educational programs like public school grants, free or low-cost school lunches and college loans; and social safety net programs like food stamps and rent vouchers. The final installment will be released on April 1 – Census Day.By now, every home in the United States should have received a letter in the mail with instructions on how to respond to the census, which takes a few minutes and asks about the number of people in the home and some basic demographic information. There are no questions about citizenship, and the Census Bureau is legally prohibited from releasing any identifiable information, even to law enforcement agencies.This year, for the first time, anyone can complete the census online, by phone or by mail. If a household does not respond, a census worker will have to come to the home to collect the information in person.The Office of Government Relations wants to get the message out to all Episcopalians that the census is still happening despite the pandemic (with some minor operational changes) and that their participation will make a difference in their lives and the lives of their neighbors. The church’s involvement stems from the fact that the census is a nonpartisan way for Episcopalians to participate in public life that particularly benefits vulnerable people, and research has shown that people are more likely to participate in the census if they hear about it from someone they trust. To that end, the Office of Government Relations offers a census engagement toolkit to help churches get the word out.“The Episcopal Church, and other religious denominations, through the ministries we lead in our communities are well situated to reach historically hard-to-count populations, a critical goal of the Census Bureau,” the office wrote in the first installment of its census engagement series. “Taking the census ourselves and helping others take the census is not just a selfish act but an act that can help our elderly neighbors get the services they need. It helps our children benefit from free or reduced lunch programs and access to funding opportunities for education. It ensures all of us can get representation in Congress we deserve.”The Office of Government Relations had previously encouraged congregations to use their physical resources to boost participation by, for example, setting up computers in a parish hall and having volunteers help people fill out the census online. The COVID-19 pandemic has upended those plans, but the engagement efforts are continuing in different forms, according to church relations officer Alan Yarborough.“We can use the church’s creative assistance to help spread the word about the 2020 census,” Yarborough told Episcopal News Service. “As we temporarily shift many church activities to online platforms, we recognize that in-person marketing, hosting a census forum, or creating a computer lab for the public to take the census, may not be possible. But this does not mean we cannot continue to assist the Census Bureau in getting an accurate count by advertising it in virtual services or spreading the word through outreach ministries that are still operational.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

first_imgNew York — Workers from B&H Photo and their families have launched a union campaign with the worker-led group Laundry Workers Center and the United Steelworkers. They held their first public protest on West 34th Street on Oct. 11.The demonstration of hundreds of workers and supporters called for this major New York-based photo and video retailer to “fix dangerous workplace conditions, end discrimination against Latino employees, and stop wage theft at their two Brooklyn warehouses,” according to a press release.“We decided to change the conditions in our workplace. We demand respect and to be treated as human beings,” said Raul Pedraza, a B&H warehouse worker for over six years.The workers described how at B&H Photo warehouses, supervisors order them to unload or carry extremely heavy loads without sufficient help or safety training. Workers suffer back injuries, the air is filled with dust, and the rooms are hot and dirty, sometimes causing nosebleeds.According to the release, during a recent fire at one warehouse, workers had to continue working while 50 firefighters and a helicopter gathered outside. Workers say they start at 7:30 a.m., and must stay until management permits them to leave, often as late as 11 p.m. They are also not allowed to “take the meals and rest breaks required by law, nor use their cell phones to reach their families.”Latino workers complain of being verbally abused and of being paid substantially less than other warehouse employees. A leaflet signed by the Laundry Workers Center and the United Steelworkers called for “a union!” and for the company to “end discrimination, stop verbal abuse” and provide “training, safe working conditions, fair scheduling, respect and dignity” with time for “meals and breaks.” A march from 11th Avenue and 34th Street ended up at the B&H flagship store on 9th Avenue.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

first_img By Hoosier Ag Today – May 7, 2018 SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Dust flew as planters rolled through the fields last week, according to Greg Matli, Indiana State Statistician for the USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service. Planting was in full swing throughout the state. Warm temperatures and favorable conditions gave farmers the chance to make great progress before the rains midweek. The rains slightly slowed progress, but farmers made up ground and then some. The average temperature for the week 64.7 degrees, 8.0 degrees above normal for the state. The amounts of rainfall recorded at weather stations varied from 0.00 inches to 4.26 inches over the week. The statewide average for precipitation was 0.71 inches, or 76 percent of normal. There were 5.0 days available for fieldwork for the week ending May 6.The welcome change in the prevailing weather pattern helped to speed up the planting of soybeans and corn. Both moved ahead of the five year average but corn progress is still behind last year. Sunshine and high winds have lowered soil moisture levels, but also limited spraying. Many growers noted overly dry conditions while planting and made depth adjustments or bet on the rains in the forecast. Cereal grains were cut for silage, pasture conditions improved and livestock are reported to be in good shape. Other activities for the week included field preparation, tile installation, finishing anhydrous applications, tillage and spreading fertilizer.

first_imgNews Follow the news on Iraq News Iraq : Wave of arrests of journalists covering protests in Iraqi Kurdistan Receive email alerts After the death of two of CNN’s Iraqi employees yesterday in an ambush outside Baghdad, Reporters Without Borders today urged journalists working in Iraq to take the utmost care and called on international news organisations to pay great attention to the risks run by their own staff and the Iraqi nationals they hire there.Translator Duraid Isa Mohammed and driver Yasser Khatab were killed in an ambush by unidentified gunmen about 30 km south of Baghdad as they were returning by car from Hillah. CNN cameraman Scott McWhinnie was grazed by a bullet, while two other CNN staffers, correspondent Michael Holmes and producer Shirley Hung, and a bodyguard were unhurt in the incident, the US television network reported in its news broadcasts.Reporters Without Borders currently considers Iraq to be one of the most dangerous places in the world for journalists. Since US President George W. Bush announced the end of combat on 1 May 2003, security conditions have not improved for journalists.The post-war period have been almost as dangerous for journalists as the war itself because of the high risk of bombings and attacks by armed Iraqi groups, violence linked to robbery and banditry, and the US army’s too often hostile attitude towards the media.Twelve journalists and two news media employees have been killed in 2003 in Iraq. Several others have been killed in accidents or in circumstances unrelated to their work while they were in the country.

The officer, who had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court in 2011 accusing the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots, is currently lodged at Palanpur jail.The SLP filed in the SC challenges the refusal of the Gujarat High Court to suspend his sentence.In October 2019, the Gujarat High Court had refused to suspend his sentence observing he had had scant respect for courts and had deliberately tried to mislead the courts.” appears that the applicant has scant respect for the Courts and is in the habit of misusing the process of law and scandalizing the Court,” a division bench of Justices Bela M Trivedi and AC Rao of the HC had observed. Earlier, Justice V B Mayani, who sat on a division bench with Justice Harsha Devani, had recused saying “not before me” when the bail application of Bhatt and Pravinsinh Zala, another convict, came up.In the petition filed in the SC, Bhat has argued that the High Court had failed to appreciate the fact that the state government started prosecuting him only after 2011 when he came out against Narendra Modi. Till then, the stand of the State had been that there was no case against Bhatt, the plea stated.The incident relates to the death of one Prabhudas Madhavji Vaishnani in November 1990, which was allegedly due to custodial torture. At the time Bhatt was the Assistant Superintendent of Police Jamnagar, who, along with other officers, took into custody about 133 persons, including Vaishnani, for rioting during a Bharat Bandh. Vaishnani, who was kept in custody for nine days, died ten days after release on bail. As per medical records, the cause of death was renal failure.Following his death, an FIR was registered against Bhatt and few other officers for custodial torture. Cognizance of the case was taken by the Magistrate in 1995. However, the trial remained stayed till 2011 due to stay by the Gujarat High Court. Later the stay was vacated and trial commenced.Bhatt has contended that the High Court failed to see that the alleged custodial death happened many days after the release of the prisoner from police custody on November 18, 1990.The IPS officer, who was sacked in 2015, approached the SC alleging that although nearly 300 witnesses were listed by the prosecution, only 32 were actually examined in trial, leaving out many crucial witnesses. Three police men who were part of the team which investigated the offence, and few other witnesses who denied any incident of custodial violence were not examined by the prosecution, stated Bhatt. He argued that the case against him was a part of “political vendetta”.In April 2011, Bhatt had filed an affidavit in the Supreme Court accusing the then Chief Minister Narendra Modi of complicity in the 2002 riots. He claimed to have attended a meeting convened by the then CM, Mr. Modi, on February 27, 2002, the day of the communal riots, when instructions were allegedly given to the State Police to not take any action against the perpetrators of violence. The Court appointed SIT however gave clean chit to Modi. In 2015, Bhatt was removed from the police service, on the ground of “unauthorised absence”. In October 2015, the Supreme Court dismissed Bhatt’s plea for constituting a special investigation team (SIT) for cases filed against him by Gujarat Government. The Court observed that, “Bhatt was in active touch with leaders of rival political party, was being tutored by NGOs, was involved in politics and activism of creating pressure, even upon 3-judge bench of this court, amicus and many others”.
