The hospital runs a three-month program for undernourished children. ENS Photo/Lynette Wilson[Episcopal News Service] On a recent sunny day in Gaza, mothers and their children waited on benches on the manicured campus outside of Al Ahli Arab Hospital to receive care from a hospital-run program that offers three-months of services to 750 children aged 0 to 5.The nourishment program is just one of the many outpatient services the non-profit, public hospital operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem has continued as it transitions into a specialty hospital and weathers financial difficulties exacerbated by a recent loss of funding.“It is our witness as Christians to serve the poor,” said Suhaila Tarazi, the hospital’s director. “With all that is going on in Egypt [political turmoil] and Syria [civil war], to keep a place like this one, a Christian place like this one, it’s important.”The hospital employs 110 people, 30 percent of them women, and serves some 30,000 patients each year, 6,000 of them in the free medical mission, she added.On Jan. 2, Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani, traveled from Israel to Gaza via the north’s Erez Crossing to see the hospital, meet with staff and to hold Eucharist in its chapel.Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem Suheil Dawani listen to a Muslim woman talk about the importance of Al Ahli Arab Hospital on Jan. 2. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonThe presiding bishop visited Israel and the Palestinian Territories over Christmas and New Year at the invitation of Dawani. In addition to the bishop, she was accompanied in Gaza by the Rev. Canon Robert Edmunds, the Episcopal Church’s Middle East global partnerships officer and former chaplain to Dawani; Alexander Baumgarten, director of the Episcopal Church’s Washington, D.C.-based Office of Government Relations; and the Rev. Canon John Organ, Dawani’s current chaplain.After crossing the border, the group was met by Tarazi and her driver, and rode through the crowded streets of Gaza City past tiny shops, many selling cheap goods made in China or automobile repairs, to the hospital, that with its English colonial architecture stands out amidst the calamity of the streets.Children smiling for the camera during a visit to Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza City on Jan. 2. ENS Photo/Lynette WilsonAl Ahli Arab Hospital is more than an architectural anomaly and a medical facility; it’s a symbol of hope for a people living under desperate conditions and looking toward an uncertain future.“People consider this place a place of security, an oasis,” said Tarazi. “People cannot understand that this hospital doesn’t have any resources. People connect us with the West, we are the living stones [1 Peter 2:5] here.”The Gaza hospital is one of 35 health and education institutions across five countries in the Middle East operated by the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. It is one of three Christian organizations – the two others are Greek Orthodox and Roman Catholic schools – and one of 21 primary hospitals operating in Gaza.In June 2012, after two decades of partnership, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, announced it would end its financial support of the hospital, cutting the hospital’s budget by $1 million, or nearly half, midyear. In July, the agency, which provides assistance, protection and advocacy for some 5 million Palestinian refugees in the Middle East, said it would extend funding through Dec. 31, 2012.“From hour one Bishop Suheil said it [the hospital] should continue; it wasn’t an easy situation for us,” said Tarazi.Following the UNRWA decision to end support for the hospital, the diocese committed to finding bridge funding through June 2013 and hired an outside consultant to conduct a feasibility study to assess its options for the future.The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is funding construction on a three-story diagnostic center on the hospital’s campus that is scheduled to open in April, and the hospital also has plans to add a burns unit.Moving forward, and depending on the outcome of the feasibility study, the plan is for the hospital to specialize in cancer, urology, neurology or ophthalmology, said Dawani.“We hope we can do something to alleviate suffering,” said Dawani, during a luncheon with doctors and other professionals following the visit to the hospital.The hospital also provides comprehensive care for women, many of whom are uninsured and suffer from cancer, high blood pressure and diabetes. Cancer is the number one cause of death in women in Gaza, a place where women don’t share the same rights as men.Given the high cancer rate, the hospital started a cancer-screening program for women, from which 30 percent of those screened required further tests. Many of the women come from small villages near the border outside Gaza City, and for some, said Tarazi, it is the first time they’ve left the village in years.“The Gazan people look to this hospital to stay; everyone knows it is a Christian hospital giving a lot of love to people in need,” said Dr. Maher E. Ayyad, a surgeon and the hospital’s medical director, on Jan. 2. “We don’t want to be history.“Please keep the hospital going; all the people in Gaza need this place. When you save a woman it’s not just her life, it’s her family.”Although Christians number fewer than 2,000 in Gaza – where the population is estimated between 1.8 and 2 million people, 99.3 percent Sunni Muslim – their presence and mission are valued in a society where more than 40 percent of people are unemployed and some 38 percent live in poverty on a strip of land 25 miles long and between 3.5 and 7.5 miles wide bordering Israel, Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea.Christian people are seen as “part and parcel of the society” in Gaza, and are “well respected and highly appreciated for their services,” said the Very Rev. Hosam Naoum, dean of St. George’s Cathedral in Jerusalem, in a Jan. 1 interview in the courtyard of St. George’s guesthouse.In addition to the UNRWA decision, the political situation in Gaza, the worldwide economic crisis, and medication and fuel shortages, all have contributed to the hospital’s recent struggles, said Naoum.“In these cases the church always finds itself in a place where it has to act. We have to tackle them the best we can. And thank God the church has its voice and its friends around the world and people who care for the people of this area, especially people of need and people who are suffering,” said Naoum on Jan. 1, the day after the UNRWA funding ran out.The American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem, a longstanding supporter of diocesan institutions, sent $75,000 to the hospital following the UNRWA announcement.The 77th General Convention, meeting July 2012, passed Resolution B017 calling on the Episcopal Church to support Ahli Arab Hospital through fundraising and advocacy. The resolution was proposed by Bishop Jon Bruno of the Episcopal Diocese of Los Angeles, which shares a companion relationship with the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem. The Los Angeles diocese raised $40,000 for Al Ahli Hospital in 2012.“Now in 2013 we are looking into the future in a way that we can run the hospital on our own without the UNRWA help anymore,” said Naoum.Founded as a mission of the Anglican Church in 1882, the first dispensary was built in 1904 and later destroyed by the British during World War I. The British rebuilt the hospital in 1924 and it became a ministry of the diocese in 1982.“The hospital is a profound symbol of healing in Gaza,” said Jefferts Schori following the Jan. 2 visit to the hospital. “It continues to be a source not only of physical healing, but of emotional and spiritual healing and the healing of communities.”Referring to a conversation with a conservative Muslim woman in the hospital’s courtyard earlier in the day, Jefferts Schori said, “She has a clear sense of the mission of this healing institution and that it is for everybody, and that produces a more whole community.“The presiding bishop last visited Ahli Arab Hospital in March of 2008, prior to the last major conflict between the Israelis and Palestinians, when in late December of that same year the Israelis launched three weeks of air and ground assaults in response to repeated rocket fire by Palestinians in Gaza. Fourteen hundred Gazans died in the attacks.Her latest visit to Israel and the Palestinian Territories came just more than a month after the most recent escalation of violence between Israeli forces and Hamas, the Islamist militant Palestinian party that has controlled Gaza since 2007.On Nov. 14, Ahmed al-Jabari, who headed the military wing of Hamas and the man who was responsible for the abduction of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit, was assassinated by an Israeli missile while riding in a car in Gaza. The Israeli attacks came in response to the more than 750 rockets fired at Israel from southern Gaza in 2012, according to news reports.The assassination kicked off a larger, eight-day Israeli airstrike campaign against Gaza. In response, Hamas launched 250 missiles into Israel, including in Jerusalem and Tel Aviv, in 24 hours. In total, 161 Palestinians, including 71 civilians, and two Israelis soldiers and four civilians were killed and dozens of others wounded by rockets fired into residential neighborhoods.“The last war was very scary and destructive; it all took place behind the walls,” said Tarazi, adding that she needed to be evacuated to a cousin’s house when a missile destroyed a police station 500 meters from her home.Despite such challenges, Tarazi and all the hospital staff remain committed to serving those most in need.“’Shalom” and ‘salaam’ mean the same thing: A community of peace with justice,” said Jefferts Schori. “And if it [the hospital] ceases to function or exist, that fountain of mercy and wholeness goes away. That kind of living water is needed in the desert that is Israel-Palestine.”— Lynette Wilson is an editor/reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

The Golden Lions beat the Sharks to win the 2011 Currie Cup

first_imgTuesday Nov 1, 2011 The Golden Lions beat the Sharks to win the 2011 Currie Cup The Golden Lions claimed the 2011 Currie Cup after a brilliant performance in the final in Johannesburg on Saturday as they beat the Natal Sharks 42-16 in an entertaining game. It’s their first piece of major silverware since 1999. Coached by Kiwi John Mitchell, the Lions had a fantastic season as they were fairly unaffected by the World Cup and ended top of the table. The Sharks on the other hand missed a lot of key players in the last two months, but when they all returned for the big game, they didn’t gel. “The Lions were, without doubt, the best team on the park and worthy winners of the Currie Cup – we just have to take it on the chin,” said Sharks captain Keegan Daniel. “We’re disappointed we didn’t convert opportunities into points in the first half when we had territory and possession, but you can’t win finals with the ill-discipline we showed.Getting to a final is one thing, but you need to produce a great game, which we couldn’t do. The Lions were phenomenal,” he added.It is the Lions’ first home victory in a Currie Cup since 1950, so it was a massive moment for the union that lifted the first ever Super Rugby competition, the Super 10, way back in 1993. Young flyhalf Elton Jantjies was outstanding on the day, kicking everything asked of him and marshalling his troops expertly. He’s had the experience and know-how of Carlos Spencer to call on, and it showed. While Sharks fullback Pat Lambie seems to be a long term option for the Springboks number ten slot, Jantjies is tipped by many to be an ideal candidate. On the other side of things veteran Wickus Van Heerden, who captained the side without success a few years back before moving to the Bulls in search of bigger things, said that it was one of the best experiences of his career. “To see a packed Coca-Cola Park is very special. I know where we have come from as a team, and this is unbelievable,” he said. Van Heerden has now won the Vodacom Cup, Currie Cup, Super 14, and the World Cup. CJ Van Der Linde was yellow carded for a dangerous tackle, which is included below, but that didn’t affect the Lions at all as they scored some great tries while Jantjies kept the scoreboard ticking over. Below are highlights of what was a thoroughly enjoyable game of rugby.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Interior ministry orders internal police inquiry into conduct of Curuvija and Pantic cases

first_img Receive email alerts News June 7, 2021 Find out more to go further ——————-12 juneInterior minister urged to reopen investigation into murder of Milan Pantic Reporters Without Borders has called on interior minister Dragan Jocic to retake control of the investigation into the murder five years ago of journalist Milan Pantic and to combat the impunity which has allowed his killers to remain at large.Pantic, correspondent in Jagodina, central Serbia for the Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti was found dead from head injuries in front of his home on 11 June 2001. The local police chief recently admitted that the murder investigation had stalled. “We urge the Serbian interior minister to get a firm grip on the investigation into the murder of Milan Pantic, the first Serbian journalist to be murdered after the fall of former president Slobodan Milosevic. “Many journalists have fallen victim to local criminality and the government of Vojislav Kostunica should make it a first priority to solve these cases, the press freedom organisation said.The journalist’s wife, Zivka Pantic, gave several press interviews on 9 June 2006 in which she said she had never been given any information about the outcome of the police investigation. She remains convinced that her husband was killed by a local mafia because he had written articles exposing organised crime in Jagodina and other cities in the Pomoravlje region. Zivojin Trifunovic, former police chief for central Jagodina, and former city mayor Jovan Stojanovic, were arrested on 13 April 2003 for suspected implication in the murder of Pantic. They were released soon afterwards and charged only with embezzlement during the Slobodan Milosevic presidency. Neither the killers nor those who ordered the murder of Slavko Curuvija, editor of the newspapers Dnevni Telegraf and Evropljanin, in front of his Belgrade home in April 1999, have ever been identified. Serbian journalists have even accused the authorities of doing no more than pretending to hold an investigation into the killing. Director General of the national police, Vladimir Bozovic, announced the opening of an internal police investigation into the conclusions reached by police in the cases of the murders of journalists Slavko Curuvija and Milan Pantic, killed respectively in 1999 and 2001. On 12 June, Reporters Without Borders had urged the interior minister to reopen the investigation into the death of Milan Pantic. The investigation was opened at the request of the interior ministry to ensure that light was shed on both murders, Bozovic said on 13 June 2006.

A fluorescent signal is created when amplification occurs, and once the signal reaches a threshold, the test result is considered positive. If no viral sequence is present, amplification will not occur, resulting in a negative result.According to Goh, a person is no longer considered infectious based on CDC criteria after at least three days (72 hours) have passed since recovery is defined as resolution of fever without the use of fever-reducing medications and improvement in respiratory symptoms (e.g., cough, shortness of breath); and, at least seven days have passed since symptoms first appeared.Goh said one antibody test has been approved by the FDA so far.“Coronavirus is different from influenza virus, so you would not expect any flu immunity.” Goh said.Managing Editor André Coleman contributed to this storylast_img read more

Two Cannabis Permits Coming Before Planning Commission Next Wednesday

first_imgCommunity News Two Cannabis Permits Coming Before Planning Commission Next Wednesday MME Pasadena Retail and Tony Fong CUPs will be considered STAFF REPORT Published on Thursday, April 23, 2020 | 7:38 pm Top of the News [UPDATED: To include review of second CUP] Cannabis will return to the political landscape on April 29 when the Planning Commission meets for the first time since January.The commission will consider two Conditional Use Permits (CUP) at the meeting.MME Pasadena Retail and Tony Fong dispensaries will be up for approval.According to city documents, the dispensary owners have applied to do business at 536 S. Fair Oaks Ave. and 3341 E. Colorado Blvd., Pasadena, respectively, according to the agenda which was released on Thursday.“The applicant MME Retail Pasadena Inc. submitted a Conditional Use Permit application for a proposed cannabis retailer dispensary,” the notice of public hearing reads. “The proposed business hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.”According to Realtrac.com, there is a 2,988 square foot medical building built in 1922, on a 14,562 square foot lot at 536 S. Fair Oaks Ave.The same site lists 3341 E. Colorado Blvd., as a 20.176 square foot retail outlet built in 1959.The meeting will be held telephonically at 3 p.m. The Planning Commission’s agenda has not been published.In 2018, voters passed Measure CC, the city’s highly regulated process which allows only six pot dispensaries — and only one in each of the city’s seven council districts — to operate legally in Pasadena.The measure also requires dispensaries to maintain strict distance limits from schools, libraries, churches and residential neighborhoods. Nearly 200 businesses applied to do business in Pasadena.In June, The Atrium Group, Harvest of Pasadena, Integral Associates Dena, Tony Fong, Sweetwater Pasadena and MME Pasadena Retail were picked from among 122 applicants vying for permission to sell marijuana in the city.So far only Harvest and Integral have received conditional use permits.Last year city officials said that only three dispensaries may receive Conditional Use Permits based on city maps.Things turned ugly when dispensaries began making allegations of bias and corruption against the city. The Atrium Group later filed a lawsuit against the city claiming city officials were lenient with Harvest.The claim and the lawsuit stemmed from a failed conditional use permit (CUP) application filed by The Atrium Group on June 13 which would have allowed the company to open a dispensary in trendy Old Pasadena, located in City Council District 3. In its CUP application, The Atrium Group informed city officials it planned to operate at 70 W. Union St.However, just one day before Atrium submitted its CUP application, Harvest of Pasadena submitted an application to operate at 169 W. Colorado Blvd. — a vacant building leased seasonally to a Halloween business that’s located on the northeast corner of Pasadena Avenue and Colorado Boulevard, and also located in District 3.Officials with Harvest signed a 10-year lease that will see them pay $55,000 per month, or $660,000 a year. Next year the rent will increase to $726,000. The agreement includes annual rent increases.Another applicant, Sweetwater Pasadena, was also rejected after it applied for a CUP in Old Pasadena.

OPD officer has alter ego as a DJ

But his passion for music and dancing hasn’t diminished. On evenings and weekends, he transforms into his alter ego, “DJ Hambone,” one of the most in-demand DJs in West Texas.“Serving on the Odessa Police Department is my first love,” Hamilton said. “But I have the opportunity to enjoy the best of both worlds. I love music and how people respond to it.“I just get a release. You play the right song and you can take people back to some great memories, or give them something for the present and future.”Hamilton made this discovery a couple years ago while he was DJing an event.“My mother-in-law uses a walker to get around,” Hamilton explains. “Due to her condition she has to walk on the sides of her feet.“I was playing some LTD (an American R&B/Funk band popular during the 1970s). I watched her; she got up and pushed away the walker. It was difficult but she hobbled over to the dance area and she started to get down to the old-school grooves.”Hamilton added: “She was having the time of her life. It was just great. It’s those type of moments that makes me feel good about what I’m doing.”Hamilton’s journey hasn’t been an easy one. The 35-year-old was born in Dallas and was quickly attracted to the exciting dance moves and funky grooves of Hip Hop and breakdancing.He quickly began trying to imitate the moves of Michael Jackson and James Brown and even tap-dancer extraordinaire Gregory Hines – merging their styles with breakdancing moves and creating his own style.By the time he was in middle school he was already competing in dance contests and racking up wins.Corp.

He found himself grumbling about the quality of music being produced by DJs at events he would attend. One day, a friend challenged him, “if you think you can do better, why don’t you try it,” Hamilton recalls his friend saying.Hamilton took to DJing quickly, and his prowess caught the eyes and ears of more established DJs who became his mentors.Life was going great, until a failed relationship broke his heart. Hamilton made the decision to sell all his DJing equipment and gave the money to his mother so she could pay bills in his absence because he had decided to join the U.S. Army.It was in the Army where Hamilton was trained and became a military police officer. After his discharge in 2013, Hamilton took a poor-paying job working in the oil fields.“I didn’t know what I was doing and got taken advantage of,” Hamilton said, referring to the oil gig. “I was making so little money, I was homeless. I was couch-surfing for about a year.”His luck changed when he noticed the Odessa Police Department was hiring and he got the job in 2014. Today, he serves as the department’s Community Relations Officer.The job is tailor-made for the outgoing Hamilton, whose duties require him to set up events to promote the police department and its relationship with the community. When an event calls for a disc jockey, DJ Hambone is already in the house.“It’s kind of funny because sometimes I’ll show up for an event in my uniform and people see my badge and immediately doubt my abilities,” Hamilton said. “Once they realize that I know what I’m doing, their attitude changes.”DJ Hambone doesn’t just perform at city functions. A couple years ago he formed his own company, which he named Hami Entertainment. It allows him to take his DJ scratching skills to clubs throughout Texas, wedding receptions, birthdays, and even church functions to name just a few.“We don’t just play Christian music at church events, we mix in songs that are secular but also uplifting,” Hamilton said. “The Bible doesn’t say “just play Christian music.” It says, “they rejoiced and danced, so let’s dance.” Twitter 2021 SCHOOL HONORS: George H.W.
