Boston Marathon bombs rock local Episcopalians

Two explosions hit the Boston Marathon as runners crossed the finish line on Monday, killing at least two people and injuring more than 80 on a day when tens of thousands of people pack the streets to watch one of the world’s best known marathons. Reuters photo/Jessica RinaldiEditors’ note: Story updated April 16 at 9:40 a.m. EST with increased casualty figure.[Episcopal News Service] The seven runners from Trinity Church Copley Square who were competing in the Boston Marathon to raise money for the church’s anti-violence initiative escaped injury in the two explosions that ripped through the race’s finish line that is within 300 yards of the church’s front porch.The Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts announced that it will hold a prayer service with Holy Eucharist at 12:15 p.m. April 16 at the Cathedral Church of St. Paul in Boston, with Bishop Suffragan Gayle Harris presiding, “assuming downtown conditions and transit have regularized.”Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori, who is in Okinawa, Japan for the Second Worldwide Anglican Peace Conference, called for prayer following the explosions, and offered the following prayer:Gracious God, you walk with us through the valley of the shadow of death. We pray that the suffering and terrorized be surrounded by the incarnate presence of the crucified and risen one. May every human being be reminded of the precious gift of life you entered to share with us.  May our hearts be pierced with compassion for those who suffer, and for those who have inflicted this violence, for your love is the only healing balm we know. May the dead be received into your enfolding arms, and may your friends show the grieving they are not alone as they walk this vale of tears.  All this we pray in the name of the one who walked the road to Calvary. Amen.The two bombs killed three people and injured more than 150 others in a terrifying scene of broken glass, smoke and severed limbs, authorities said, according to an Associated Press report.The blasts took place almost simultaneously about four hours after the start of the race, and about 100 yards apart, AP said, tearing limbs off numerous people, knocking spectators and at least one runner off their feet, shattering windows and sending smoke rising over the street.A fire broke out at the John F. Kennedy Library a few miles away and more than an hour later, but no injuries were reported, the police commissioner said. It was not clear what caused the fire or whether it was related to the bombings. A senior U.S. intelligence official said two other explosive devices were found near the marathon finish line.“Downtown church personnel reached so far report chaos in the Back Bay area and limited mobility,” the diocese reported at 5:30 p.m. April 15. Emmanuel Church at 15 Newbury Street reports no damage, the report said, and the cathedral had cancelled its Monday evening community meal because volunteer servers couldn’t make it into the city.An hour earlier, Bishop Tom Shaw requested prayers “for the City of Boston and all affected by and responding to this afternoons explosions” and said that diocesan staff were checking in with downtown Episcopal churches.Some Massachusetts churches responded to the tragedy by gathering in prayer.The Rev. Timothy Schenck, rector of St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church in Hingham, Massachusetts, announced on Facebook that the parish would hold a 7 p.m. prayer service.“All are invited as we pray for the victims of today’s tragedy in Boston and try to make sense of this in the context of our faith,” wrote Schenck, who ran the marathon himself in 2008. “Please spread the word.”Trinity Church in Rockland, Massachusetts, reported on Facebook: “Church is open now if anyone needs to come and pray. Shaken to the core by what just happened in Boston.”House of Deputies Vice President Byron Rushing said on the House of Bishops and Deputies listserv that he did not go to the race’s finish line although it is in one corner of the state legislative district he represents and six blocks from his house. Rushing, the assistant majority leader in the Massachusetts House of Representatives, said he instead attended Patriots Day activities at First Church in nearby Roxbury.The Boston marathon is the world’s oldest annual marathon, having begun in 1897, and is run on Patriots Day, the third Monday in April. The day, which is a legal holiday in the state, commemorates the battles of Lexington and Concord, the first battles of the American Revolutionary War, which took place April 19, 1775.“Hugely relieved” is how the Rev. Patrick C. Ward, Trinity associate rector for worship and communications, described his feelings in a call to Episcopal News Service about 5 p.m. EST April 15, about two hours after the explosions.Ward said he and other parish staff members had spent those two hours trying to track down the seven runners, including Richard Webster, the church’s organist and director of music. Trinity staffers who had gone to the race course to cheer on their colleagues also were unharmed, Ward said.“What [information] I am getting is basically from texts and Facebook because cell service is so awful right now and people aren’t really on e-mail right now. They’re using their phones for texting and updating their status on Facebook,” he said. “I’m just relieved that all of our people are OK.”About 40 marathon participants from elsewhere came to Trinity for its various Sunday services, and they all received a blessing, Ward said.Trinity Church was closed for the day because of the race. When initially contacted about 4:30 p.m., Ward said the staff had closed up the building after the last service the evening before.Ward was continuing to get most of his information from texts and Facebook updates, while watching television reports, as he talked to ENS.“I’m looking at the news; I am looking at an aerial shot right now, and [the explosion site] is about 300 yards from our front [west] porch,” he said.The finish line is on Boylston Street about a half block from Copley Square and right in front of the public library, according to Ward. The infrastructure damage caused by the bomb appeared to be isolated to storefronts at the finish line and to the grandstand, he said.“I don’t think there was any damage to Trinity Church,” Ward added.“People say, ‘Should we go to church,’ but the whole area is completely sealed off,” he said. “There’s nothing we can do there right now.”Team Trinity, as it is known, was competing in the marathon via the John Hancock Boston Marathon Nonprofit Program to support the programs of the Trinity Boston Foundation. The foundation’s mission is to “unlock opportunity and change the odds for the youth of Boston,” according to its website. Ward said there is “a strong anti-violence component to the ongoing work that we do.” John Hancock had predicted that participants in its program would raise nearly $7 million during the race.While the AP reported there was no word on the motive or who may have launched the attack, Ward reflected on the violence by recalling his experience the day before.He said he was coming to church on April 14 amid a number of foot races that take place the day before the marathon and heard the national anthem being played.“It was huge crowds but very peaceful and, having lived through Sept. 11, I thought, ‘Oh, we’re beyond that now,’” he said, adding it was nice to be out on the street in such a big crowd “and not feel afraid.”— The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service. ENS correspondent Sharon Sheridan contributed to this story. April 16, 2013 at 7:26 am Thank you for the good reporting. On all who are suffering and on this nation,Kyrie eleison,Christe eleison,Kyrie eleison Boston Marathon Bombing Youth Minister Lorton, VA Rector Hopkinsville, KY Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Katerina Whitley says: By Mary Frances SchjonbergPosted Apr 15, 2013 April 21, 2013 at 10:59 pm I agree with everything you’ve said, Bernie, but my comment wasn’t about the story itself, which was fine; it was about the headline. Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Course Director Jerusalem, Israel April 17, 2013 at 2:09 pm Nothing about the headline is offensive. I am a member of the Episcopal Diocese of Massachusetts. Just last year, I visited Trinity Church Copley Square as it is was where our deanery (Charles River) had its confirmation service. It is a well-known and significant congregation located in the vicinity of the marathon route, so it is appropriate to note in the title, how local Episcopalians were affected by this situation. After all, this is the “Episcopal News Service.” Kathleen Dubois says: Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Rector/Priest in Charge (PT) Lisbon, ME Tags Rector Washington, DC Titus Presler says: Raleigh Daniel Hairston, D.Min.

May the comfort, strength and love of Jesus be with them all, so they can recover from grief, injury to body, mind or spirit.Wanda, a member of St. Stephen’s in the Field, San Jose, California April 20, 2013 at 2:17 am Hi, Joseph, I understand. My view, though, is that I can find those types of news stories in the mainstream outlets. However, ENS offers what the mainstream news outlets don’t: stories that explain how Episcopalians have been affected. Yet, when the mainstream news outlets cover stories about Episcopalians, they often don’t seem grounded in any knowledge of the church as a denomination. April 17, 2013 at 6:46 pm Thanks, Bernie, but I’ll stay with my initial thought. I’m very familiar with Trinity, Copley Square and the location of the bombs, including their proximity to several churches, including the one steeple that shows up in a lot of the pictures, of Old South Church — and I realize ENS is ENS. But for me, the headline seemed to have a “Bomb Rocks Local Episcopalians – Others Affected Too” ring to it. In other words, everyone was ‘rocked’ and I don’t see any reason to single out Episcopalians in the headline. On the other hand, I could surely see a piece entitled, “Trinity, Copley Square Members Respond to Marathon Bombing” or “Episcopalians Respond…” or something like that, which would be terrific. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Curate Diocese of Nebraska Family Ministry Coordinator Baton Rouge, LA April 17, 2013 at 12:07 am May 9, 2013 will mark 42 years ago when I was ordained priest by the late Bishop of Massachusetts, the Rt. Rev. John M. Burgess, in the Trinity Parish Church, Copley Square, Boston. This unfortunate event brought back many memories of my times in that area. I am indeed saddened by these terrorist acts that both killed and wounded many. Many of us are joining with the Rt. Rev. Gayle Harris, Suffragan Bishop, in praying for God’s grace, love, mercy and healing for victims and survivors; and restful peace to those killed, and now into the nearer presence of our heavely Father, and the Lord Jesus Christ. It is only in and through the triune God do we find real, and lasting, peace and safely. Along with seeking justice, new hope and healing, for all let us continue in prayers, and looking forward to the days when violence and wars shall cease, and we shall inherit a new world order headed by the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords.

Much of the cathedral building was within the cordon imposed after last month’s earthquake amid fears that a neighboring nine-storey building might collapse on top of it. Demolition experts have reduced the height of that building to a safe level, and last night the city’s engineers reduced the size of the cordon, opening up the cathedral for use once again.Full article.

The Fund is now open for applications in 2019, with a deadline of Monday 2 December, and will reopen in mid-January for the 2020 round, when it will accept applications at any point throughout the year. The Fund will support a range of activities to help people to develop the skills, talents and confidence to overcome barriers to employment or education. Priority will be given to carers, black and minority ethnic people, disabled people, homeless people and people who are experiencing disadvantage that prevents them from realizing their potential.The Fund is named after the drug, which is classed as a PARP inhibitor, and works by exploiting a defect in the cancer cell’s ability to repair normal wear and tear to its DNA. This defect is common in ovarian cancer and currently Rubraca® is approved for ovarian cancer. Research shows that the PARP inhibitor kills tumour cells without harming healthy cells, which is part of the research developed by scientists at Newcastle University, including Professor Nicola Curtin.It is estimated that around 1,350 people in England could benefit from this new ovarian cancer treatment. Professor Nicola Curtin said:“I feel very privileged to have such a great career. By working with a team of scientists at Newcastle University to bring Rubraca® to market, we’ve created a cancer treatment that has the potential to change thousands of women’s lives.“Our extraordinary journey began in the 1990’s, and the clinical development of Rubraca® is the result of many years of hard work.“This journey has made me reflect on my own life, and it seems wrong for me to benefit from this financially. I’m proud that this research will change lives, and I have everything that I need in life – a good job, a loving family, a nice house, but in society there are many who do not have this.“I know first-hand that people are capable of amazing things, but society sometimes doesn’t always allow people to reach their full potential. So, through the Curtin PARP Fund at the Community Foundation I want to leave a lasting legacy that will change lives for the better.”Sandra King, Chief Philanthropy Officer at the Community Foundation commented: Advertisement About Melanie May Melanie May is a journalist and copywriter specialising in writing both for and about the charity and marketing services sectors since 2001.

Jewish activists support Congressperson Tlaib

first_imgAbout 60 members of Metro Detroit’s Jewish community held a rally and Shabbat service Aug. 16 to support their congressperson, Rashida Tlaib. Israel recently denied Tlaib permission to meet with Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank, along with Rep. Ilhan Omar of Minnesota. Tlaib had also planned to visit her 90-year-old grandmother. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu granted her permission to visit her family on the condition she refrain from voicing support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement against Israeli apartheid. Tlaib refused to abide by these terms, which she called “oppressive.”“Shabbat is a day for rest and rejuvenation in community,” JVP Action, an arm of Jewish Voice for Peace, explained. “We invite Rashida to come restore, and to feel our love and support as we gear up for the road ahead. We stand with Rashida as her proud constituents, community and neighbors, together continuing the struggle for freedom, equality, and freedom for all people, from Detroit to Palestine.” (Jewish Voice for Peace, Detroit Facebook page)“Thank you for lifting up peace, love and justice,” the congressperson told supporters. “I’m proud of my Palestinian roots, and I’m also strong because I grew up in the most beautiful, Blackest city in the country, in the city of Detroit.“I can’t wait to show my grandmother how I was supported by all of you—​it would bring her so much joy. One day we’re going to be able to hear the voices of people like my grandmother, who have not been truly seen or heard.” (jewishvoiceforpeace.org)FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Aranceles, comercio y sobreproducción

first_imgPublicado en lowwagecapitalism.com el 25 de agosto.Todas las señales indican que se avecina una recesión económica. Si bien los capitalistas son los primeros en gemir y gemir por los descensos en los mercados de acciones y bonos, una recesión económica provoca una crisis para la clase trabajadora. Significa despidos, turnos cortos, horas reducidas, inestabilidad general y sufrimiento para los trabajadores y los oprimidos.Lo que se necesita en el próximo período es que la clase trabajadora, los sindicatos, los no organizados, en diversas organizaciones y comunidades, superen la desunión y la pasividad a tiempo para luchar y empujar la crisis a las espaldas de los jefes capitalistas.Hay una especulación interminable sobre si las políticas de Trump, particularmente la guerra comercial con China, están causando o acelerando la recesión. Pero para ser claros, si hubiera una recesión, la sobreproducción capitalista sería su causa.Detrás de la guerra comercial de Trump¿Qué está impulsando la guerra comercial y los aranceles, que son realmente un impuesto para la clase trabajadora en los Estados Unidos y en China? Trump está desesperado por crear los empleos que prometió en su candidatura electoral en el 2016. Cree que su reelección depende de ello. Él piensa que una guerra arancelaria obligará a las corporaciones estadounidenses a regresar a los EE.UU., donde ofrecerán nuevos empleos. Esta es la fantasía de Trump. Es completamente falsa y se basa en la ignorancia total.Las corporaciones estadounidenses se han apresurado a posicionarse en China a lo largo de los años. Los trabajadores de China tenían salarios relativamente bajos, y había una gran población de campesinos que llegaban a las ciudades, junto con una creciente población educada y una fuerte infraestructura construida por el gobierno socialista. China proporcionó tanto un vasto mercado interno y una plataforma para exportar productos a terceros países, incluido EE.UU.En resumen, estar en China fue rentable para las empresas estadounidenses, y todavía lo es. Los jefes corporativos no cederán sus ganancias sólo porque Trump les diga que lo hagan. Por supuesto, muchos de ellos desean poder salir de China por otras razones: los salarios están aumentando. Hay influencia comunista entre los trabajadores. Los patrones temen la fuerza del Partido Comunista Chino (PCCh) y odian ajustarse a las reglas y regulaciones establecidas por el PCCh y el gobierno chino.Algunos jefes están tratando de encontrar alternativas en donde hay bajos salarios, por ejemplo, en Vietnam, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Singapur y otros lugares. Pero cambiar las cadenas de suministro, encontrar infraestructura y romper los patrones de producción no es tan fácil como Trump lo hace parecer.Corporaciones gigantes como Boeing, Caterpillar, Apple, GM, GE, entre otras, tienen grandes inversiones de capital en China. Muchos de ellos contaban con una toma de control capitalista a gran escala, lo que les habría permitido dominar China. Pero está claro que tal vuelco no está sucediendo.Las tácticas de Trump en la guerra comercial con China también reflejan la profunda y creciente hostilidad de la clase dominante estadounidense hacia China, especialmente su estructura socialista y su creciente influencia política, económica y militar en Asia y el mundo.La sobreproducción capitalista es el problemaEn su intento de apuntalar la economía estadounidense, Trump y la clase dominante están realmente en contra del propio capitalismo. La economía capitalista opera de acuerdo con sus propias leyes.El marxismo muestra que el consumo y la producción están indisolublemente unidos. También muestra que cada recesión comienza, no con una disminución en el consumo, sino con una disminución en la producción. Donde la producción disminuye, las ganancias disminuyen y los capitalistas se apresuran a proteger sus ganancias golpeando a los trabajadores con despidos, recortes salariales, recortes en las horas, eliminación de beneficios, lo que sea necesario para evitar que caigan los márgenes de ganancias o para frenar la caída.¿Por qué los otros países imperialistas (Alemania, Gran Bretaña, Francia, Italia, Japón, entre otros) están en declive manufacturero o se dirigen hacia uno? Solo hay una razón. Hay una disminución en los mercados de productos manufacturados.China, un país socialista, no está en depresión, pero la tasa de crecimiento de la economía ha disminuido del 5,7 por ciento en diciembre de 2018 al 5,5 por ciento en febrero de 2019. Pero esta tasa de crecimiento sigue siendo más alta que en cualquier parte de las economías capitalistas mundiales. . (Reuters, Business News, 13 de marzo de 2019)Es una ley del capitalismo que la producción se expande a un ritmo rápido, mientras que el consumo se expande, si es que lo hace, al ritmo de un caracol. Esto se debe a que a las masas de trabajadores se les paga muy poco, mientras que las ganancias aumentan. Las ganancias y la producción superan el consumo: esa es una ley de hierro del capitalismo. Eso es lo que lleva a la sobreproducción capitalista.La enorme productividad del trabajo hace que las masas de la clase trabajadora no puedan volver a comprar todo lo que producen. La alta tecnología en la producción ha agravado esta situación y ha empeorado la crisis de sobreproducción. Con la automatización, menos trabajadores producen más productos y servicios en menos tiempo. Esto es lo que explica la gran cantidad de trabajadores que están excluidos de las estadísticas de desempleo: aquellos que abandonaron por completo la fuerza laboral oficial, que improvisan trabajos de medio tiempo para vivir y usan otros medios para sobrevivir.Cualquier conversación sobre caída, recesión, depresión, etc., debería hacer sonar las alarmas entre los trabajadores más avanzados. Debería ser un llamado de atención a los líderes de los trabajadores, estén donde estén, para comenzar a organizarse para luchar.Los trabajadores deben exigir que sus ingresos sigan fluyendo por cualquier medio disponible, ya sea que los capitalistas paguen con sus ganancias y ahorros, o que el gobierno lo haga directamente a través de programas de empleo. Una recesión económica es una emergencia para los trabajadores. Debe ser tratado como tal.Trump está desesperado por aumentar el número de empleos manufactureros en los EE.UU. Para tratar de apuntalar su base electoral. Pero el índice de fabricación ha mostrado una contracción en los EE.UU. Por primera vez desde 2009. Es seguro que a esta disminución en la fabricación le seguirá una disminución en el consumo.El informe de confianza del consumidor de la Universidad de Michigan, que es el estándar de oro del capitalista, ha mostrado una caída en la confianza económica popular en el futuro. Eso indica una mayor amenaza para el consumo.Amazon y otros minoristas en línea han expulsado tiendas físicas y cerrado centros comerciales. Estos eventos devastadores, impulsados por la alta tecnología, pueden impulsar el resultado final, (sus ganancias), de Amazon, pero al mismo tiempo propagan el desempleo y la pobreza en todo el país.El número de trabajadores en tiendas y centros comerciales que son despedidos supera con creces el número de trabajadores que se ponen a trabajar en los centros de distribución de Amazon o Fedex o UPS. Cuando cierra una tienda o un centro comercial, los trabajadores minoristas pierden sus trabajos y también los trabajadores de mantenimiento, diseñadores de ventanas y pisos, trabajadores de comida rápida que atienden a los clientes en los centros comerciales, y más. No importa cómo lo corte, los trabajadores reciben una paliza cuando los minoristas en línea sacan del negocio a las tiendas y centros comerciales.Las contradicciones de la explotación capitalista han planteado una grave amenaza para la clase trabajadora y la economía capitalista. Trump debería ser expulsado debido a su racismo indescriptible, misoginia e intolerancia, así como a sus viciosas políticas antiinmigrantes. Pero el verdadero problema es el capitalismo en sí mismo.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more
