One of the most obvious and pernicious examples of the continued legacy of slavery in America is the use of state violence against black men and women. We condemn the killing of George Floyd by Minneapolis Police Officers. And more than that, we condemn the entire system that continues to condone the use of excessive force to police black men and women across the U.S. Continued tolerance, even encouragement, of state-sanctioned violence causes senseless deaths like that suffered by George Floyd not only possible, but inevitable, given the state of our justice system.To “Strive for Justice and Peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being” is a covenantal obligation of the baptized within our Episcopal tradition. George Floyd was afforded neither justice nor peace. Not by the officer who killed him and not by the officers who stood silently by, complicit, while it happened. We call upon the City Attorney of Minneapolis to indict and arrest not just one but all the officers involved so that we can acknowledge the worth and dignity of George Floyd. And further, we affirm the worth and dignity of all people who continue to be targeted by state sponsored violence. Black lives matter, and we affirm this categorically because black lives are too casually devalued in the administration of justice.It is part of our common Christian faith to proclaim and celebrate our unity in Christ: “There is neither Jew nor Greek, slave nor free, male nor female, you are all one in Christ Jesus” (Galatians 3:28). If all are beloved in the Body of Christ, then we cannot allow the color of one’s skin to determine whether a child made in God’s own image ends up rich or poor, incarcerated or free, sick or healthy, alive or dead. We therefore call upon all Christians to dismantle the system of racism that defines American life, to eradicate white supremacy in all its forms, and to speak boldly and loudly to confront it, in honor of George Floyd, Auhmad Aubrey, Breonna Taylor, Freddie Gray, Tamar Rice and so many more.We encourage every church in the Episcopal Diocese of Maryland to speak publicly about the killings of George Floyd, Auhmad Aubrey and others. And we also encourage you to ask why black and Hispanic Marylanders make up more than half of all COVID-19 related deaths in the state and 3/4 of the diagnosed cases. Ask why unequal access to basic healthcare, and fresh produce and other nutritious food, ensures that black and brown Marylanders are likely to live shorter, less healthy lives, even before and after the seasons of COVID-19. Then act to change those differences. Each congregation and each Christian must find a way to tip the scales in the other direction; to make Paul’s promise in Galatians and Jesus’ promise in the Gospels more manifest on earth tomorrow than they are today. Tomorrow is too late.In Christ,The Truth and Reconciliation of the Episcopal Diocese of MarylandMs. Heather Neil and the Rev. Grey Maggiano, Co-ChairsThe Rev. Canon Christine McCloudThe Rev.

DfID offers new funding for small UK charities working internationally

first_imgIn June 2013 The Telegraph reported that Patel, then a Conservative backbencher, “said reforms could include scrapping DfID and replacing it with a trade-focused body to help businesses invest in the developing world.”Now it seems that her views have ameliorated since she started working within DfID. Just two days ago DfID announced that it was doubling its matched giving fund for the DEC East Africa Appeal from £5m to £10m.Partnership with the Charity CommissionThe Secretary of State also announced a new partnership between the DfID, the Charity Commission and the wider sector.This new partnership will provide training to small and medium sized organisations working overseas on development to build their skills and capabilities and increase their effectiveness. It is also designed to increase public trust and support for development work.Chairman of the Charity Commission William Shawcross said:“Helping small and medium sized charities deal with today’s huge risks is crucial. This work will be key in building capacity to ensure these charities can operate to the highest standards.

Why north Korea needs to defend itself

first_imgThe Pentagon deployed six F-22 fighter jets to Korea.Where does the danger of yet another war come from?Does it come from the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, which has no military bases or soldiers or nuclear weapons anywhere in the world but on its own soil? Or does it come from the U.S. billionaire ruling class, which dictates U.S. military and foreign policy? The U.S. has been militarily occupying the southern half of Korea since 1945. U.S. warplanes, warships, submarines, troops and military “advisers,” armed with everything from assault rifles to nuclear weapons, are spread all over the world.This is the question that should have been on the agenda of the United Nations Security Council on Dec. 22, when its 15 members voted for an even stiffer round of sanctions against the DPRK. These sanctions reduce the country’s ability to import refined petroleum products by 90 percent and set a cap on crude oil imports. They also mandate the return within 24 months of the estimated 100,000 DPRK citizens working abroad, whose remittances to home contribute to the national economy.The DPRK foreign ministry responded to these sanctions, declaring them “an act of war.” And rightly so. Because attempts to starve and freeze an entire country can be as deadly as shooting.The sanctions are timed to hurt the DPRK at the cruelest time of year in this far-northern country. As we write this, Korean people must be tightening their belts and figuring out how to stave off hunger and frost during the coldest winter months. How will the sanctions affect the schools in this socialist country, which wiped out illiteracy decades ago and provide every person with a free education? How will they affect the hospitals and clinics — where 70 percent of the doctors are women — that give total medical care and regular checkups free to the entire population?People living in the United States never hear about the DPRK’s great social achievements. They are made all the more spectacular by the fact that the U.S. military, from 1950 to 1953, dropped more bombs on north Korea than in the entire Pacific theater during World War II. People here cannot imagine what it must have been like to build up an economy focused on meeting people’s needs when every single building higher than one story had been blasted to bits by U.S. planes during the Korean War.But the Koreans know the horrors of war. That is why they have focused on the need for self-defense ever since — to defend what they have built up literally from the ashes.U.S. a warfare stateThe total U.S. military budget for fiscal year 2018 is $824.6 billion, making it larger than the next nine countries combined. (thebalance.com) This huge budget feeds the military-industrial-banking complex and the tremendous gap in incomes in this country.In late October, right before Trump’s trip to China, the U.S. sent two more U.S. Navy carrier strike groups to the Pacific, making a total of three aircraft carriers and their accompanying fleets of cruisers, destroyers and submarines. There have been so many U.S. warships in the Pacific this year that a number of serious naval accidents have occurred there.Every summer, fall, winter and spring, the U.S. holds war “games” in south Korea, practicing for the invasion of the north and the “decapitation” — the Pentagon’s own word — of its leadership. Recently, these U.S. military exercises have included thousands of soldiers from Japan, the hated colonial power that ruled all Korea from 1910 to 1945.In early December, the U.S. launched another set of these war “games” in which six F-22 fighter jets, as well as six F-35As and 12 F-35Bs, were involved for the first time. These supersonic aircraft zooming towards the DPRK’s border ramped up the possibility that the Koreans might think an attack had begun. Faced with this relentless aggression, Korean scientists have been able to construct nuclear weapons and a missile system capable of delivering them to U.S. targets if they are attacked. Given what the DPRK is up against, what country in the world could be more justified in claiming the need for this type of defense?The UN voteChina and Russia, world powers that are the DPRK’s two northern neighbors, are the ones tasked by this new sanctions resolution with cutting down most of its oil shipments and sending home its nationals working in their countries. Back on Sept. 6, the New York Times reported that the Trump administration had “circulated a draft resolution at the United Nations Security Council that would effectively empower the United States Navy and Air Force to interdict North Korean ships at sea, inspect them to determine whether they are carrying weapons material or fuel into the country, and use ‘all necessary measures’ to enforce compliance.”People’s China and capitalist Russia are said to have agreed to the Dec. 22 U.N. vote increasing sanctions on the DPRK partly because of this U.S. threat to start boarding Korean ships on the high seas. They are justifying their vote as meant to avert an incident that could lead to war.However, they voted for previous sanctions resolutions, and that did nothing to stop the U.S. from intensifying its war threats against the DPRK or keep it from moving even more military personnel and equipment into the area. Will this latest resolution, instead of appeasing the imperialists, merely whet their appetite for more and more concessions at the expense of the Korean people? When will the governments of China and Russia draw the line and say, “No pasarán” [“They shall not pass”]?The problem is not just that an unfortunate incident could lead to war. The problem is that U.S. policy, as expressed in its pronouncements and its military exercises, is to destroy the socialist government of the DPRK and turn the northern half of Korea into a U.S. neocolony.It should be remembered that no U.S. administration has been willing to sit down with representatives of the DPRK and negotiate an end to the state of war that has existed since 1950, despite many, many requests from the Koreans for such discussions and a peace treaty. What this means is that the Pentagon can launch an attack at any time without even the figleaf of consulting Congress — because an official state of war already exists.Were China and Russia to have vetoed the sanctions resolution, they would certainly have risked incurring the wrath of the imperialists. But doesn’t going along with such a resolution incur the even greater risk of emboldening the most aggressive forces within the imperialist policy makers, who want unchallenged domination over the world and see both China and to a lesser degree Russia as rivals?The actions of the DPRK’s neighbors so far must have confirmed to the Koreans that to prevent the U.S. from starting another war, they must have a very powerful deterrent of their own. And isn’t that why both the USSR, when it existed, and People’s China developed their own nuclear weapons?FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Pregnancy offers no bar to fixed term contracts

first_img Previous Article Next Article Pregnancy offers no bar to fixed term contractsOn 27 Nov 2001 in Personnel Today A known state of pregnancy does not protect employers from discriminationliability – even if witheld at interviewA person dismissed or refused employment on pregnancy grounds will have aclaim for sex discrimination based on the principle established in the case ofWebb v EMO Air Cargo (UK) Ltd in 1994, ICR 770. This case established that an employee did not need to show that she hadbeen less favourably treated than a man would have been in similarcircumstances due to the fact her dismissal was related to pregnancy. It washeld that reference to a male comparator was inappropriate as pregnancy was acondition unique to women. As such, the dismissal could not be justified evenby the employee’s inability to fulfil her initial obligations under thecontract. However, the facts of the case were that Mrs Webb had been recruited to apermanent role, albeit initially to cover another employee’s maternity leave.The judgement emphasised that just because it was discriminatory for anemployee on an open-ended contract to be dismissed on account of her intendedabsence, it would not necessarily be so in the case of an employee on a fixedterm contract where the maternity leave might blot out all, or a substantialpart of, the intended period of employment. This month the ECJ considered that question in Tele Danmark A/S v Handels ogKontorfunktionaerernes Forbund I Danmark (HK) 2001, IDS 696. The employers haddismissed the employee when they found out that she was pregnant, but statedthat the reason for the dismissal was not the pregnancy as such, but thatbecause of it she would be unable to perform a substantial part of the fixedterm contract she had agreed. In addition she had known at the recruitment stage that she was pregnant andhad hidden this from them even though she must have been aware of its impact onthe contract period. The ECJ rejected the employer’s arguments. It said that the protectionafforded to an employee during maternity leave could not be dependent uponwhether her absence on that leave would cause financial loss to the employer,or even if her presence over the contract period was necessary to the properfunctioning of the business. Where does this leave employers? It will mean that even if an applicantconceals the fact that she is pregnant, and is hence unable to attend theworkplace during all or part of a fixed term contract, she will still be protectedand able to claim discrimination if dismissed, or if the offer of employment iswithdrawn. Could employers ask candidates if they are aware of any reason why theycannot work the full contract period during the recruitment process? If so, itwould make not mentioning a pregnancy an outright lie rather than passivenon-volunteering, and thus allow employers to dismiss on the basis of thedeceit involved rather than the pregnancy. While this might attract the sympathy of the tribunal, it is far from aguaranteed defence in law since it is, in effect, an admission that had theemployer known she was pregnant, it would not have employed her. This itselfwould be a discriminatory stance. There will often be financial consequences from wasted recruitment costs andunless there is capacity in the workforce, the whole process may have to berepeated again. The employee will not generally be entitled to statutorymaternity pay in these circumstances as she will not meet the qualifyingservice provisions. However if there is a contractual maternity pay scheme thatis not dependent on a minimum length of service, the employee may have a rightto be paid under it without ever setting foot in the workplace. This is a heavy burden for any employer which may tempt some to favour maleapplicants for such temporary posts. However, it should be remembered thatdiscriminating in the recruitment process still creates potential liability forclaims.

Evidence of an active volcanic heat source beneath the Pine Island Glacier

first_imgTectonic landforms reveal that the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) lies atop a major volcanic rift system. However, identifying subglacial volcanism is challenging. Here we show geochemical evidence of a volcanic heat source upstream of the fast-melting Pine Island Ice Shelf, documented by seawater helium isotope ratios at the front of the Ice Shelf cavity. The localization of mantle helium to glacial meltwater reveals that volcanic heat induces melt beneath the grounded glacier and feeds the subglacial hydrological network crossing the grounding line. The observed transport of mantle helium out of the Ice Shelf cavity indicates that volcanic heat is supplied to the grounded glacier at a rate of ~ 2500 ± 1700 MW, which is ca. half as large as the active Grimsvötn volcano on Iceland. Our finding of a substantial volcanic heat source beneath a major WAIS glacier highlights the need to understand subglacial volcanism, its hydrologic interaction with the marine margins, and its potential role in the future stability of the WAIS.last_img read more
