Parroquia cercana al epicentro de gigantesca pesquisa policial se siente…

first_imgParroquia cercana al epicentro de gigantesca pesquisa policial se siente conectada con toda la Iglesia Una ‘nube de testigos’ en torno a la iglesia del Buen Pastor en Watertown Por Mary Frances Schjonberg Posted Apr 24, 2013 Rector Tampa, FL El 19 de abril, equipos de la SWAT entran en un barrio suburbano de Watertown, Massachusetts, para registrar un apartamento en busca del sospechoso de los atentados de la maratón de Boston que aún no había sido capturado. Reuters/Jessica Rinaldi[Episcopal News Service] Nota de la redacción: Historia actualizada a las 6:20 P.M. del 19 de abril con nuevos detalles de acerca de la búsqueda del sospechoso.La Rda. Amy McCreath despertó en Washington, D.C. el 19 de abril, con la noticia de que su parroquia de la iglesia del Buen Pastor [The Good Shepherd] en Watertown, Massachusetts, estaba cerca del epicentro de la búsqueda sin precedentes del segundo de los dos sospechosos del atentado con explosivos de la maratón de Boston. También no tardó en enterarse de que la Iglesia Episcopal a veces es tan sólo una pequeña parroquia.Poco después de recibir una llamada de su obispo, el Rvdmo. M. Thomas Shaw, SSJE, de la Diócesis de Massachusetts, el teléfono de McCreath siguió sonando.  Y había personas que intentaban conectarse con ella por otras vías.“He tenido noticias de unos cuantos obispos y de parroquias de todo el país —y de amigos— y me he sentido muy conmovida y asombrada del poder de las redes sociales y de la conectividad que tenemos a través de la Iglesia Episcopal”, le dijo ella a Episcopal News Service.“A la media hora  de despertarme esta mañana, resultaba realmente obvio que había toda esta nueve de testigos que estaba orando por nosotros —¡que regalo es eso!”, dijo McCreath en una entrevista telefónica mientras su marido, Brian, la llevaba a ella y a sus hijos de regreso a casa luego de pasar el receso de primavera en Washington, D.C.Tan pronto como se enteró de la noticia, McCreath contó que ella, uno de los guardianes de la parroquia y otro miembro del clero que hace su práctica allí comenzaron a ponerse en contacto con los feligreses. “Todas las personas de la parroquia que llamé para saber de ellas y preguntarles cómo estaban, su primera respuesta fue [preguntar] qué puedo hacer, qué puedo hacer para ayudar”, dijo. “Comenzaron a hacer llamadas telefónicas y comenzaron a orar”.Varios miembros de la parroquia viven en East Watertown, “una familia en la [misma] calle donde estaban teniendo lugar gran parte de los sucesos” y añadió que ella había hablado brevemente con una mujer de la zona que estaba recibiendo en su casa a vecinos “que intentaban mantenerse a salvo”.“Le hice saber que estábamos orando por ella y le pedí a varias personas que oraran por los que se encontraban en Watertown,” dijo McCreath.Antes de llegar al Buen Pastor en 2010, McCreath fue la capellana episcopal del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts (MIT, por su sigla en inglés). Sean Collier, un agente de la policía del MIT, de 26 años y vecino de Somerville, resultó muerto alrededor de las 10:30 P.M. del 18 de abril durante lo que el Boston Globe llamó “una noche violenta y caótica” que precedió a la gran búsqueda del 19 de abril.“Estoy de corazón con la comunidad del MIT. Siento enorme simpatía por los policías del MIT”, dijo McCreath. “Son de primera. Comparto el duelo con ellos por la pérdida de un magnífico colega”.Los acontecimientos comenzaron a desarrollarse en la noche del 18 de abril luego que el FBI publicara las fotos de dos hombres, no identificados en ese momento, a los que describieron como “armados y extremadamente peligrosos”. [Las autoridades] pedían la ayuda del público para identificar a los hombres, pero añadían una advertencia cautelar.Richard DesLauriers, agente especial del FBI a cargo del caso, dijo durante una conferencia de prensa inmediatamente después de las 5 P.M. (Hora Estándar del Este) que “nadie debía acercárseles. Ni nadie debía intentar arrestarlos, salvo los agentes de la ley”.La policía del MIT recibió informes de un tiroteo a las 10:24 P.M. del 18 de abril, informó el Globe, y cuatro minutos después se produjo la denuncia de un robo en una tienda cercana al MIT. Los primeros informes sobre los hermanos fugitivos el 19 de abril resultaron ser incorrectos. Un minuto después de denunciado el robo, un agente de la policía del MIT fue encontrado muerto a tiros en su auto, según el Boston Globe.Dos minutos después los hermanos prófugos se hacían sospechosos de haber secuestrado un Mercedes todoterreno (SUV), decía el Globe. El dueño del vehículo había logrado escapar, y dijo que los hermanos se habían identificado como los autores del atentado en la maratón, según varios informes de prensa.Los dos hombres llevaron a los agentes de la ley a una persecución en la cual dispararon dos veces contra la policía. En uno de estos encuentros resultó herido Richard H. Donahue, de 33 años y agente de la policía de tránsito de la Autoridad de Transporte de la Bahía de Massachusetts. El Globe informó que otros 10 agentes estaban siendo atendidos en el Centro Médico de Santa Isabel [St. Elizabeth], en Brighton, luego de que resultaran lesionados por explosivos lanzados desde el auto [donde huían los fugitivos].Durante el encuentro, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, de 26 años, al parecer salió del vehículo y resulto herido. En algún momento, su hermano menor, Dzhokhar A. Tsarnaev, de 19 años, atropelló a Tamerlan mientras huía en el auto, según informes de varios medios de prensa.Tamerlan Tsarnaev fue conducido a la sala de urgencias del Centro Médico Beth Israel Deaconess alrededor de la 1:10 A.M. con múltiples lesiones traumáticas. Los médicos le dijeron al Globe que esas lesiones incluían heridas de bala y heridas causadas por explosivos. Se le declaró fallecido a la 1:35 A.M.Los detalles del caos de esa noche y de la cacería que le siguió se mantuvieron surgiendo y cambiando. El Boston Globe actualiza su cobertura aquí.El Rdo. Samuel T. Lloyd III, sacerdote a cargo de la iglesia de la Trinidad de la plaza Copley [Trinity Church Copley Square], le informó a su parroquia el 19 de abril que el Rdo. Patrick C. Ward, rector asociado de la Trinidad para el culto y las comunicaciones, y quien reside en Belmont, le había informado “que gran parte del tiroteo de la noche estaba teniendo lugar a sólo unas cuadras de su casa”.En su carta a la parroquia, Lloyd dijo que “en momentos como éste, es decisivo para nosotros que nos acordemos de quiénes somos y a quién pertenecemos”.“En medio de las tensiones y la ansiedad del momento, seguimos siendo un pueblo amparado en el amor de Dios, confiado en que su seguridad definitiva reside en el cuidado providencial de Dios, y llamados a ser Cristo los unos para con los otros en nuestra ciudad, incluso en los momentos más difíciles”, escribió él.A casi un millón de personas en Boston y en las comunidades aledañas de Watertown, Waltham, Newton, Belmont y Cambridge, se les pidió que se mantuvieran “guarecidas en el lugar”, dentro de sus casas y que no le abrieran las puertas a nadie, excepto a la policía con una debida identificación. Miles de agentes de policía han pasado el 19 de abril llevando a cabo una intensa búsqueda, a veces yendo de puerta en puerta, para capturar a Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.La búsqueda también dio lugar a la súbita suspensión del tren de cercanías de la MTBA, así como de los servicios de autobuses y trenes subterráneos. También se suspendió el servicio de taxis. Los funcionarios públicos han pedido a los establecimientos comerciales de la zona que no abran.La Associated Press informó que los hermanos sospechosos provenían de una región rusa cercana a Chechenia, la cual ha estado plagada de insurgencia islámica. Los dos habían estado viviendo juntos en la calle Norfolk, en Cambridge, a menos de cuatro kilómetros de la Escuela Episcopal de Teología [Episcopal Divinity School].[El obispo] Shaw pidió que oraran en las primeras horas del 19 de abril mientras la policía llevaba a cabo su búsqueda.“Dada la presente actividad de la policía que ustedes sin duda están viendo en las noticias, quiero hacerles saber que hemos estado en contacto esta mañana con nuestros capellanes del Instituto Tecnológico de Massachusetts y de Harvard, y con el clero y los guardianes de la iglesia del Buen Pastor en Watertown, y todo el mundo allí, así como en la Escuela Episcopal de Teología, está bien, hasta donde sabemos” le dijo él al clero y al liderazgo de la diócesis el 19 de abril.“Favor de orar por todos en las comunidades afectadas, y por una solución rápida y libre de violencia para estos perturbadores sucesos. Vela, oh Señor, con aquellos que laboran o vigilan o lloran en este día”.Las oficinas diocesanas y la oficina de la iglesia catedral de San Pablo [Cathedral Church of St. Paul] cerca del parque comunal de Boston [Boston Common] en la calle Tremont No. 138 en Boston, se mantuvieron cerradas.Miembros del Buen Pastor y de la iglesia de La Trinidad en la plaza Copley se reunieron para orar por las víctimas de los atentados de la maratón de Boston en las primeras horas de la noche del 18 de abril. Durante su oficio de oración vespertina contemplativa en Hidden Brook, el Buen Pastor incluyó oraciones para las víctimas de los atentados y “apoyo para el resto de nosotros a fin de poder lidiar con la tragedia”.Lo que Lloyd llamó “un número considerable de feligreses de La Trinidad” se reunió para un oficio de música y oraciones en la intersección de las calles Berkeley y Boylston, que él dijo que se ha convertido en el principal lugar de reunión en el desierto paisaje de la plaza Copley y sus alrededores. La meta de la maratón está en Boylston, a sólo unos metros del lado occidental de la iglesia de La Trinidad.Durante el oficio, los miembros del coro nos dirigieron en el canto de “Maravillosa gracia” [Amazing Grace] y “América la bella” [America the Beautiful].  Los medios noticiosos sobrevolaron para captar la escena, dijo Lloyd.“No puedo decirles lo bueno que fue ver las caras de nuestra comunidad de La Trinidad, la fuerza que nos brindó para apoyarnos mutuamente, la seguridad que dio de que todos estamos juntos en esto”.El 21 de abril, el cuarto domingo de Pascua, se conoce como el Domingo del Buen Pastor, porque el evangelio del día es [el pasaje de] Juan 10:22-30, una porción de la historia en que Jesús se llama a sí mismo el buen pastor que da su vida por sus ovejas. Por tanto, es la fiesta patronal de las congregaciones que están bajo la advocación del Buen Pastor. La iglesia de Watertown había planeado un almuerzo para recién llegados el domingo, y McCreath dijo que la parroquia aún tiene planes de tener la comida.“Pero creo que se va  convertir en un almuerzo para todos”, dijo ella. “Cualquiera de la comunidad que quisiera estar allí para ser parte de la comunidad y compartir historias y encontrar valor es bienvenido”.—La Rda.

DeSantis: No need for Florida-wide shutdown; air traffic a concern

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here Free webinar for job seekers on best interview answers, hosted by Goodwill June 11 By John Haughey | The Center SquareGov. Ron DeSantis again rebuffed calls Monday to impose a statewide stay-at-home order, calling a blanket shutdown unnecessary across large swaths of the state. “In New York (City), when they did the stay-at-home order, what did people do? A lot of people fled the city and they are going to stay with their parents or fly (out),” DeSantis said Monday in The Villages.And where did many fly? Florida, DeSantis said.“We are getting huge amounts of people flying in. We are looking at how to address those flights,” he said.DeSantis said he talked to President Donald Trump on Sunday night about the difficulty in containing the coronavirus outbreak with people flying in and out of the state.As of Monday afternoon, according to the state Department of Health (DOH) coronavirus website, 1,171 COVID-19 cases have been confirmed in Florida, and 14 have died.A week ago, there were 115 positive cases and four deaths statewide. By Friday, those totals reached 500 cases and 10 deaths. The big boost in numbers has been spurred by the increasing number of private labs analyzing tests in Florida – 699 positive test results returned by private labs.The state expects 500,000 sampling swabs this week, meaning with increased testing capabilities, the number of reported cases will spike dramatically. According to the DOH, as of Monday morning, it had conducted 9,330 negative tests, with 933 still pending.Last week, DeSantis issued four executive orders. On Friday, he ordered bars and gyms closed and limited restaurants to takeout/delivery, and issued an order to close beaches in Broward and Palm Beach counties. Some counties and cities have gone further, closing nonessential businesses, beaches, marinas and parks. DeSantis said he will leave authority in the hands of local leaders. The state ordered all 174 state parks closed and shut down the Florida Lottery on Monday but did not close day care centers. There are still first-responders, police, medical professionals and hospital workers who need day care centers, especially with schools closed, DeSantis said.“It is something we are looking at, but I don’t think it is as easy as saying, ‘Shut all this down and things are going to work out,’ ” he said.Rep. Anna Eskamani, D-Orlando; Sen. Lori Berman, D-Boynton Beach; and Agriculture Commissioner Nikki Fried – Florida’s only statewide-elected Democrat – are among those calling for DeSantis to issue a state stay-at-home order.“Shutting down one of the nation’s largest states is a decision that will have an economic impact – but it is a decision that will save lives,” Fried said Monday. “Based on the data, we know we are a week behind California’s vast increase in COVID-19 cases. The individuals and businesses I’ve spoken with are growing more anxious by the day. As the nation’s third-largest state, we need to go further, and we cannot afford to lose another week.”Fried said an across-the-board order would be more effective than the current “piecemeal approach.” A statewide shutdown inadvertently could spread the coronavirus, DeSantis said, as COVID-19 refugees migrate elsewhere to find jobs or hunker down with family.

Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate About one-third of Florida’s 67 counties has not reported confirmed cases of the coronavirus or the disease it causes, COVID-19, DeSantis said, and another one-third has reported only a few cases.Rather than impose a statewide business shutdown and ban all social gatherings the way California, New York, Michigan, Pennsylvania and Illinois have to varying degrees, DeSantis said Florida must focus on containing COVID-19 where it’s spreading the most – south Florida’s Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties.

Developer donates apartment to charity

first_img One of Ireland’s leading property developers has donated a Dublin apartment worth ‚€2.75 million to charity. The donation will be divided between two South African charities building houses and providing education for disadvantaged people. Developer Sean Dunne, who has volunteered in a house building project in South Africa, said he made the donation after realising how far the money would go towards fighting poverty in the country. The donation will support the Niall Mellon Township Trust and the Mandela Rhodes Foundation. The apartment is in one of Dublin’s most exclusive areas at Brighton Road. Mr Dunne said he would let the Mellon Trust decide how to dispose of the property. The Trust brings hundreds of volunteers to South Africa each year to build low cost housing around Cape Town.

The Fed: No Changes to Interest Rates

first_img Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Mike Albanese is a reporter for DS News and MReport. He is a University of Alabama graduate with a degree in journalism and a minor in communications. He has worked for publications—both print and online—covering numerous beats. A Connecticut native, Albanese currently resides in Lewisville. The Federal Reserve announced that it would not lower the benchmark rate any further than its current range of 1.5% to 1.75%, ending a string of cuts to interest rates. In its official announcement, the Fed stated, “the current stance of monetary policy is appropriate to support sustained expansion of economic activity.” The Fed’s decision to not slash interest rates comes just days after the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics revealed the U.S. economy added 266,000 jobs in November, with the unemployment rate holding steady at 3.5%. “It’s a significant surprise because economists were ready to go with the idea that payroll growth was slowing down because the job market had gotten tight,” said Stephen Stanley, Chief Economist at Amherst Pierpont in an interview with Bloomberg. “The whole tenor has changed in terms of job growth. We’re back at steady-as-she-goes at a robust pace.”Projections from the Fed now indicate that the current interest rate environment is enough to sustain growth, as there are no plans to cut rates in 2020. The Fed most recently cut rates in October to its current standing of 1.5% to 1.75%—the third time in 2019 rates were cut. “Global central banks maintain accommodative stances in their monetary policies, focused on steering economies away from a recessionary precipice,” said George Ratiu, Senior Economist, realtor.com on Wednesday’s announcement. Ratiu said the most was anticipated by investors and that mortgage rates are expected to remain consistent in the months ahead. “Rates are over 100 basis points below last year, providing wind in the sails for homebuyers,” Ratiu said. “However, the sharp contraction in the number of homes available for sale across all price ranges has dampened the housing momentum.” CNBC also reported that just four of the 17 members anticipated a one quarter-point increase in 2020. Projections past next year point to a return to increases, as forecasts call for the average interest rate in 2021 to be 1.9% and 2.1% in 2022.

It is the grievance of the petitioner that he was not granted any personal hearing nor was his objection considered. Moreover, the Notification under section 6 of the Act came to be published by which his land stood acquired. The petitioner subsequently raised another objection to the acquisition. Since no cognisance was taken of that either, the HC was moved. “The right of a landowner to raise objections to acquisition proceedings under Section 5-A of the said Act is well recognised…It is thus seen that Section-5-A of the said Act confers a valuable right in favour of a person whose lands are to be acquired. If objection to the acquisition proceedings are raised, same have to be adjudicated by indicating brief reasons which could demonstrate objective application of mind to the entire record”, observed the court. The bench noted that in the present case, there is no material whatsoever produced on record to indicate that the petitioner was duly heard on the objections raised by him or that those objections were adjudicated upon. There is nothing on record to indicate application of mind by the Special Land Acquisition Officer to those objections or any material indicating reasons for their rejection. “Without adverting to the objections as such the Special Land Acquisition Officer has proceeded further with the acquisition proceedings. This has thus vitiated the entire process of acquisition”, court concluded. The Division Bench considered that it was urged on behalf of the respondents that the petitioner in his objection had indicated his inclination to receive compensation at the rate of Rs.8000/- per sq. ft. for the land and Rs.1000/- per sq. ft. for the constructed portion. “The same would not mean that the petitioner did not intend to pursue his objection and had given up the same”, the HC decided. The bench also could not accept the submission that the objections raised by the petitioner were without any merits- “It was for the Special Land Acquisition Officer to have applied his mind to the objections as raised and to have taken a decision on the same. This Court cannot undertake the exercise of examining the said objections in absence of same not being considered by the Special Land Acquisition Officer” “There is no other option but to declare that the entire process of acquisition pursuant to the Notification issued under Section 4 of the said Act (…) has been vitiated. The said proceedings are accordingly set aside. Needless to state that the respondents are free to take further steps for acquiring said land if advised in accordance with law…Rule is made absolute in aforesaid terms”, declared the HC.Click Here To Download Judgment[Read Judgment]Next Storylast_img read more
