Photo: Winfred Vergara/special to Episcopal News Service[Episcopal News Service – Manila, Philippines] Amid the sweltering heat of the Philippine summer, there is a rising religious fervor here as the clergy and people of Iglesia Filipina Independiente (IFI) prepare for the consecration of its first woman bishop, Emelyn Dacuycuy.While there are three other IFI bishops-elect scheduled for consecration in several dioceses this year in this 10-million member Christian denomination, the attention is focused on this historic event.The consecration will be held at the Aglipay National Shrine in Batac, Ilocos Norte on May 5. The date and venue coincide with the birthday and birthplace of the Most Rev. Gregorio Aglipay, co-founder and first Obispo Máximo, or elected leader, of the IFI.Known in history as the only and living result of the Philippine Revolution of 1898, the IFI was created when its schism from the Roman Catholic Church was proclaimed in August 3, 1902, by the first Philippine labor leader, Isabelo de los Reyes, at the meeting of Unión Obrera Democrática in Centro de Bellas Artes in Manila.While its founding was the offshoot of political revolution against three centuries of Spanish colonization and a movement for religious reformation in Philippine Catholicism, the IFI closely followed the attitude of the Roman Catholic Church in regard to gender inclusion.And while its first full-communion partner, The Episcopal Church, welcomed women’s ordination in 1973, it took 44 years before the IFI followed suit and formally accepted women’s ordination in 2017.Because Aglipay was not a bishop at the time of the schism in 1902, the IFI wandered for 40 years in theological wilderness, seeking to be restored to catholicity.The Episcopal Church bestowed historic apostolic succession when three Episcopal bishops came to the Philippines and consecrated three IFI bishops (Isabelo de los Reyes Jr., Gerardo Bayaca and Santiago Fonacier) into the episcopate in 1948.Both churches then approved the concordat of full communion in 1962, recognizing their common catholicity and mutual independence and autonomy.Not an easy journeyThe election of Dacuycuy as bishop of the Diocese of Batac after 117 years of IFI history was not an easy journey. Anxious that electing a woman bishop might lead to a woman Obispo Máximo, many members of the Supreme Council of Bishops (SCB) made determined efforts to derail the election of a woman as bishop.In an interview with this writer, Dacuycuy said, “It took me 11 special General Conventions and three SCB meetings before I finally got the approval.“Any woman priest aspiring for the position of bishop in a male-dominated council of bishops needs extra strength for the hard struggle. I am very fortunate I have very strong support from my family, and by the grace of God, I am endowed with a very firm principle to stand against stiff opposition and even amidst my own brokenness,” Dacuycuy said.Dacuycuy, who prefers to be called, “Bishop Emelyn” (to emphasize her womanhood) said that the struggle for gender equality must continue to pervade not only the church but also the larger Philippine society.“Patriarchalism and machismo images are still prevalent in the Philippine culture. Filipino women are not yet fully free from economic, political, cultural and religious oppression. The work of empowering women must be continued vigorously,” she said.Role in the churchAsked what role she would have to play as the first and only woman on the Supreme Council of Bishops, Dacuycuy said that “engendering leadership and inspiring more women clergy to step up would be the biggest challenge.”“In my humble beginning as ‘the first,’ I plan to help redefine patriarchal meanings, symbols, attitudes, cognitions and recognitions that have long been considered normative in a male-dominated house of bishops,” she said.“I continue to pray for God’s wisdom, and I believe I am now getting a better support not only from several male bishops but also from the current Obispo Máximo, the Most Rev. Rhee Timbang, in whose term this historic event is taking place.”The Obispo Máximo is highlighting the consecration of Dacuycuy and has invited local and foreign dignitaries to attend, including members of its full communion partner, The Episcopal Church.Episcopal Church guests Kansas Bishop Cathleen Bascom and Southern Ohio Assisting Bishop Nedi Rivera, who has also served the dioceses of Olympia and Eastern Oregon, will serve as co-consecrators, and will bring greetings from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry.In addition, two female Filipino-American priests attending. The Very Rev. Irene Igmales Maliaman, the first Filipino woman archdeacon of Micronesia, will bring greetings on behalf of Hawaii Bishop Robert Fitzpatrick, and the Rev. Ruth Casipit Paguio, first woman rector of Holy Family Episcopal Church in San Jose, California, will bring greetings on behalf of El Camino Real Bishop Mary Gray-Reeves.– The Rev. Winfred B.

Rob Horne’s high shot and tip tackle combo leads to two yellows and a ban

first_imgWednesday Nov 22, 2017 Rob Horne’s high shot and tip tackle combo leads to two yellows and a ban Former Wallaby back Rob Horne was last night banned for a week after two dangerous tackles in the same match. There was an offence in each half, with the second challenge coming in the final seconds of Northampton Saints’ loss to Worcester Warriors on Saturday.Horne, capped 34 times by Australia, joined Saints at the beginning of the season but will be hoping to forget about this game as soon as possible, as it was both a 30-15 loss and a nightmare ending for the centre.He picked up his first card for a high challenge on Chris Pennell in the first half, then on full time lifted and tipped fellow Australian back, Jono Lance.Lance, incidentally, has just signed with the Melbourne Rebels for Super Rugby 2018.Horne got his second yellow card with time up, as the referee and TMO deliberated on whether or not to award a try to would be hat-trick hero Bryce Heem.The try was awarded, as was the yellow and red card, despite fullback Ben Foden’s best efforts to get the referee to yellow card him instead.Under RFU regulations, two yellow cards (where both are for acts of foul play) results in a sanction of one week off from playing. Horne did not contest the ruling.He is therefore free to play again on 26 November 2017, after missing their fixture at Sale.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Big Hits & Dirty Play Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Suspensions handed down after testicle grabbing… 26 WEEKS AGO The ‘double ruffle’ splits opinion with fans… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: The nastiest and most brutal moments… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Pond House / will bruder+PARTNERS

first_img “COPY” Pond House / will bruder+PARTNERS Photographs:  Bill Timmerman Text description provided by the architects. Imbedded in a dramatic rock outcrop overlooking a natural, year-round, swimming hole, the Pond House is a bridge to two unique and disparate ecosystems: the Sonoran Desert and its local riparian microcosm. As a modestly scaled 165 square meter weekend retreat, the Pond House also bridges the metropolitan intensity of Phoenix, thirty miles south, with an idyllic oasis of desert calm and contemplation.

Along the arrival drive an arcing naturally weathered steel plate form emerges from the earth, extending to embrace the parking and service structure across the site. The steel arc is pierced once, revealing a path and simple concrete fountain with an overflowing edge as its focal point. The water quietly flows down a natural flagstone stair into a metaphorical canyon formed by the wall of steel and the curving sloped stonewall of the house. The tension between the opposing curved arcs forms a funnel into the home’s entry foyer. The sloped coursing of the home’s stonewall elicits a sense of mythical ruins of past cultures.

The state, in its appeal, contended that the employee was employed as a work-charged/contingency employee in the Tribal Welfare Department and was thus not entitled to the compassionate appointment as per the existing policy on the date of his demise.The bench, also comprising Justices Aniruddha Bose and Krishna Murari observed:It is trite to say that there cannot be any inherent right to compassionate appointment but rather, it is a right based on certain criteria, especially to provide succor to a needy family. This has to be in terms of the applicable policy as existing on the date of demise, unless a subsequent policy is made applicable retrospectively.The claimant contended that his late father was categorized as a permanent employee on account of having worked for more than 15 years and the consequent regularisation of his service. While considering this contention, the bench noted the  distinction between a work-charged employee, a permanent employee and a regular employee. In this regard, the bench also referred to Ram Naresh Rawat v. Ashwini Ray & Ors.,in which it was held that a ‘permanent’ classification does not amount to regularisation. “We cannot ….make a conclusion that the status acquired is that of a regular employee upon having achieved the status of a permanent employee in service.”, the bench said.While allowing appeal, the bench took note of subsequent circulars issued and invoked powers under Article 142 of the Constitution of India to increase the Compassionate grant amount from Rs. 1,00,000/- to Rs. 2,00,000/-, payable to the claimant.Case no.: CIVIL APPEAL NO. 8564 OF 2015 Case name: STATE OF MADHYA PRADESH  vs. AMIT SHRIVASCoram: Justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul, Aniruddha Bose and Krishna Murari  Click here to Read/Download JudgmentRead JudgmentSubscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

The Museum Fire, near Flagstaff, Arizona, is 1,887 acres and only 12% contained, but an evacuation order has been lifted due to the higher humidity, lower temperatures and monsoon rain.Hot weather, with locally gusty winds, sparked a few brush fires from the San Francisco Bay area down to Los Angeles on Wednesday.Several record highs were broken and tied in Southern California, including one in Long Beach, where the temperature reached a record-tying high of 99 degrees.Looking forward, monsoon storms are still forecast for Thursday in the Southwest and southern Rockies from California to Colorado, where flash flood watches have been issued.The heat will increase in the coming days, especially in California where numerous heat watches, warnings and advisories have been issued.Gusty winds up to 40 mph are expected in Montana, where red flag warnings have been posted.The heat is on this weekend from Sacramento to Las Vegas, and even into Phoenix, where some cities could see high temperatures a little over 110.Desert temperatures could even reach into the 120s in Southern California.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
