The storm swept away or flooded homes along the coasts of New Jersey and New York, disrupted transportation and telephone services across the region and left millions of households without electricity and heat, and in some cases water, throughout multiple dioceses.Churches responded by opening their doors as warming, charging and feeding stations; collecting and distributing emergency supplies and meals; and dispatching volunteers to visit and inventory the needs of those most affected by the storm. In the process, their clergy reported, the churches offered new opportunities for service and built community within and beyond their walls.“The community-building is amazing,” said the Rev. Michael Sniffen, rector of the Episcopal Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York, in the Diocese of Long Island. “A lot of the volunteers have been coming back day after day, so we’re all getting to know one another.”The Episcopal Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York, serves as a “holy warehouse” for Hurricane Sandy relief supplies. Each day, the church is filled with and then emptied of donations distributed to storm victims. More than 20,000 volunteers have helped with the effort, which has received hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of donations. Photo/Michael SniffenSt. Luke and St. Matthew opened its buildings, including the church itself, to relief efforts, particularly Occupy Sandy, which harnessed the organization and volunteer power of Occupy Wall Street. Along with a slightly smaller operation at St. Jacobi Evangelical Lutheran Church in Sunset Park, the parish became “basically the major drop-off and distribution hub and volunteer-training hub for Brooklyn,” Sniffen told ENS.By Nov. 12, more than 20,000 volunteers and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of donations had come through the church’s doors. “We have six to nine full UPS trucks that come and drop off [donations] at the church every day,” Sniffen said.Volunteers canvas storm-affected neighborhoods, determine what’s needed, then distribute the relief supplies that have been sorted and organized in the church’s pews. To solicit the specific donations needed, Occupy Sandy uses an Amazon wedding registry. A kitchen crew provides 5,000 to 8,000 hot meals a day.Children from New York Public School 29 run the “coat check” station for Occupy Sandy volunteers at the Episcopal Church of St. Luke and St. Matthew in Brooklyn, New York. Photo/Michael SniffenNew-volunteer orientation happens every 15 minutes. Volunteers of all ages participate, including students from Public School 29 who spent their Veterans Day holiday running the “coat check” in the church balcony.One volunteer told Sniffen she hadn’t attended church in more than a decade. “This renews my faith in what the church can be,” she said.An electrician from Milwaukee, in town to babysit his grandchildren for a few days, helped install a generator at a church without electricity, explaining, “I thought I could be useful.”Another man, visiting New York from Barcelona, Spain, spent a day sorting donations at the church.“Those are just three stories. It’s an image of human community,” Sniffen said, noting that volunteers come “from every religious background, and none.”“I think the fact that this effort is housed in a church speaks for itself,” he said. “What’s amazing is the number of volunteers who come up to me and say, ‘Thank you so much for opening up this church.’ … I just keep telling folks: This is what the church is for.”Members of a wide variety of churches and other community groups helped prepare meals at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey, for the 10 days it served as a post-Sandy warming, charging and feeding station. On the last night, dinner was prepared by members of Market Street Mission, a nondenominational organization that offers a residential recovery program for men as well as emergency services for the community’s needy. Photo/Sharon SheridanAt St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Morristown, New Jersey, which served more than 3,000 meals over 10 days to people left without electricity after the storm, cooking allowed people of many backgrounds from the wider community to work together for a common purpose, noted the Rev. Janet Broderick, rector.“It was possible for people of so many different minds, of theologies and thoughts about God, to just work side by side,” she said. “It brought out the best in folks.”Besides hosting meals, the parish hall served as a warming and charging station each day. At the tables, one could find a homeless person, used to living “on the edge,” holding a discussion “with someone who is probably a multi-millionaire with no [electricity],” said the Rev. Melissa Hall, assistant rector. “We had the Antioch table here.”“We worry about budgets. We worry about stewardship. We worry about bulletins … and this was the great leveler,” she said. What became vital was: “Do we have enough sauce? How much spaghetti do we need to make for 150 people?”When Hurricane Sandy disrupted mass transit and telephone service in New York, Diocese of New York Bishop Coadjutor Andrew Dietsche rode his bicycle from the Cathedral of St. John the Divine to lower Manhattan to check on parishes he had been unable to reach. Photo/Tomas ReimerChurches are perfectly poised to help in a disaster like this, said Diocese of New York Bishop Coadjutor Andrew Dietsche.“A lot of other agencies sort of show up from outside when disasters happen, and usually show up with more resources. But what we have is places on the ground … and already-existing ties to the community,” he said. “Especially in the Episcopal Church, we don’t tend to be a mega-church model. We’re a parish model. We have a church in every community, and we’re community-based. We know the people. We have those networks.“It’s practical, but it’s also completely consistent in the gospel call that we follow as well: to love our neighbors.”Congregations throughout the 200-church diocese have been following that call since the hurricane hit.“Really, all of the churches in our diocese are reaching out in different ways,” Dietsche said. “The churches in lower Manhattan have been reaching out into their communities with relief for the people who live in the neighborhoods of their churches.”Among those churches, St. Mark’s Episcopal Church in-the-Bowery served as a major relief-distribution center. North of the city, St. Stephen’s in Pearl River in Rockland County and St. Peter’s in Peekskill in Westchester County served a similar role in areas that escaped flooding but suffered massive power outages, he said.While the storm damaged some churches, “generally the damage was moderate, and it’s all fixable,” and none prevented them from holding worship services, he said. The worst-hit area in the diocese was Staten Island, where some parishioners lost homes. In one case, a mother and daughter both had their homes condemned because of storm damage.“I’m not quite sure yet what we will be able to do for people whose whole homes are gone,” Dietsche said. “We have to sort of assess what role we can play.”As the need transitions from immediate emergency relief to longer-term rebuilding, Dietsche said he anticipated one of the diocese’s best resources for developing strategies to meet that need would be its new disaster response coordinator, the Rev. Stephen Harding. “He has brought great leadership to this.”The areas of the diocese severely damaged by the storm are on a smaller scale than in the surrounding dioceses of New Jersey, Newark and Long Island, Dietsche noted. He’d like to see networks develop across the dioceses to move forward in the rebuilding state, although he doesn’t know what shape that will take yet, he said.In the Diocese of New Jersey, the hurricane left nine clergy as well as some parishioners homeless, said the Rev. Francis Hubbard, interim rector at Christ Episcopal Church in New Brunswick. The parish has served as a regional depot for area churches sending supplies to the hard-hit Jersey Shore. It also geared up for a larger-than-average distribution of supplies at its regular local food pantry.The storm knocked out the church’s telephone, and Hubbard’s cell service was spotty for several days. Once his cell phone was working properly, “I went through the parish directly and started making phone calls to everybody who had been hospitalized in the last year and any elderly people, if I could reach them.”Some people he reached had no power or heat, but downed power lines and trees made reaching them difficult. He began searching for other parishioners who lived nearby who could help, and “a lot of people started reaching out themselves to people that they knew,” Hubbard said, adding that he thinks this strengthened the bonds among members.“I think that this can build community, and I think it also tells you how much we need community. There’s a great sin of over-individualism in America, that we’re tough and everybody can make it on their own, and that’s bogus,” he said. “Jesus didn’t say, ‘Believe in me and never hang out with anyone else who does.’ It’s interdependence, not dependence.”In the Diocese of Newark, St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Montclair stayed open as a warming and charging station 12 hours a day for two weeks and now employs an “eat, pray, love” strategy for its post-Sandy efforts: getting nonperishable foods to storm victims in Hoboken or through Occupy Sandy; praying for those traumatized by the storm; and loving through giving, encouraging donations to Episcopal Relief and Development, said the Rev. John Mennell, rector.“It was an amazing couple of weeks of ministry,” he said. “It was just so wonderful to see people that giving and that open. I always think that when tragedy and stuff like this strikes, God finds some way to show us God’s best.”“The folks that came in were incredibly grateful,” he said, adding, “Some of the folks were among 19 visitors at church on Sunday.”Through watching the community come together in service, Broderick discovered something about what draws people to God and the church.“I always thought that if people could understand that God loves them exactly as they are, then they would find church irresistible and the church would grow, lots of people would come. And I’m disappointed that that doesn’t always work,” she said. “I discovered from this … people need an opportunity to give themselves to serve.”“It’s an aspect of worship … giving oneself in a real and serious sacrificial way,” she said. “It’s really an aspect of being crucified with Christ. That’s really what we’re talking about … being a person who gives selflessly as Christ did. I think people need that experience in order to connect with the church in a real way. I think that’s what I noticed that I have not provided for in my ministry as much as I really want to provide for it now.”Said Dietsche, “The kind of relief work that we do … is very much the work of the gospel … a fulfillment of our commitment to live life as disciples.”And it changes people’s perception of the church, Hall said, from something “ancient and archaic” to one “really relevant and able to stand in a modern world in an important way with a very simple message, which is: The table is for everyone; everyone is welcome.”“I think it was eye-opening for people to see it in action,” she said. “To me, that was the most amazing piece, in that people who don’t believe in God, who don’t believe in organized religion, who call themselves spiritual but not religious – that all of a sudden they realized that … the church is a way to connect in a loving and inclusive and important manner with something bigger than ourselves.“I think what happened was that people experienced grace,” she said. “I’m very proud of my church.”Episcopal Relief & Development is working with leaders from affected dioceses as they mobilize local resources and reach out to those hardest hit.

What You Don’t Hear About Animal Care

What You Don’t Hear About Animal Care

first_img By Gary Truitt – Oct 26, 2014 What You Don’t Hear About Animal Care Here is a little experiment. Type the phrase “animal care dairy” into your favorite search engine.  Then open a second tab in your browser and type the phrase “animal cruelty dairy.”  Then compare the two lists of results. One will have links to articles about how dairy farmers are caring for their animals and how animal care is a top priority for most producers. The other list will be filled with links to radical animal rights groups claiming that dairy farmers abuse their animals regularly and that the animals live in horrible conditions.  Rarely do the animal rights groups talk about animal care; their focus is on abuse because that is a more effective fundraising tool. Dairy farmers focus more on care and rarely use the term abuse because the term and the concept are so abhorrent to them. On my query there were 4,140,000 results on the animal cruelty page and 12,200,000 on the animal care page.  This would indicate that there are a lot more people talking about animal care than animal cruelty.  SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter But dairy farmers are doing more than just talking about animal care. A recent report indicated that the majority are practicing animal care every day on their farms.  Dairy farmers nationwide continue to demonstrate widespread adoption of industry standards that assure high-quality care for their animals, according to a report released last week by the National Milk Producers Federation. The summary report, issued annually, quantifies practices by farmers participating in the industry’s responsible care program, known as the National Dairy FARM Program (Farmers Assuring Responsible Management). The report quantifies the results of more than 12,000 dairy farm evaluations conducted during the previous three years. All the data collected by second-party evaluators who visit each of those farms is catalogued and provides a baseline of the breadth of adoption of the program’s care practices. The report found nearly 95 percent of farms enrolled in the program train their employees to properly move animals that cannot walk and more than 98 percent train employees to handle calves with a minimum of stress. Animal rights groups assert that animal abuse occurs regularly on most farms, but the evidence does not support that allegation.  Overall, according to the report, participation in the FARM Program increased to more than three-quarters of the nation’s milk supply, up five percentage points from the previous year. In addition, 99 percent of farms observe animals daily to identify health issues for early treatment; 93 percent develop protocols with veterinarians for dealing with common diseases, calving, and animals with special needs; and 92 percent train workers to recognize the need for animals to be euthanized.center_img Another myth being perpetrated by critics of animal agriculture is that livestock farmers regularly pump animals full of antibiotics.  Yet, the fact is that responsible drug use by farmers is advocated and practiced by the majority of operations.  NMPF released the new 2015 edition of its safe use manual for antibiotics and other animal drugs. The Milk and Dairy Beef Drug Residue Prevention Manual permits producers to quickly review those antibiotics approved for use with dairy animals. It can also be used to educate farm managers in how to avoid drug residues in milk and meat. The manual, available online, is updated annually. “Today, the use of antibiotics and other drugs in livestock is more intently scrutinized than ever,” said Jamie Jonker, NMPF’s vice president of scientific and regulatory affairs. “To maintain consumer confidence, we must show we are using these medicines properly, legally, and judiciously. This manual shows dairy farmers’ commitment to just that.” Facebook Twitter Home Commentary What You Don’t Hear About Animal Care Previous articleBig Slow Harvest Causing ProblemsNext articleSunday Outlook Gary Truitt By Gary Truitt The shrill cries of animal cruelty have given consumers an unrealistic view of animal agriculture. While there are, and will continue to be, isolated cases of abuse on farms, the evidence is that most farms treat their animals with care, compassion, and best management practices.   If the retailers, who are so quick to put up signs in the dairy and meat case stating their these products are hormone free, would also put up signs that stated “produced by healthy and cared for animals,” consumers might begin to get a more complete and accurate picture of animal care on US farms.last_img read more

RSF asks Tanzania to explain yesterday’s brief arrests of CPJ visitors

RSF asks Tanzania to explain yesterday’s brief arrests of CPJ visitors

first_img Organisation News November 27, 2020 Find out more Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Tanzanian authorities to fully clarify the detention of two visiting representatives of the Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) for several hours yesterday. RSF_en Angela Quintal, the CPJ’s Africa programme coordinator, and Muthoki Mumo, its sub-Saharan Africa representative, were released last night after being arrested at their Dar es Salaam hotel by a group of men who said they were working for the Tanzanian immigration authority. Tanzanian government spokesman Hassan Abbasi said the Tanzanian authorities had been trying to establish whether the “supposed CPJ journalists” had been authorized to enter the country. They were released after being questioned by the immigration authorities, but their passports were seized and only returned midday today, said the CPJ in a statement.It was Quintal herself who broke the news of their arrest on Twitter. Her Twitter account was used a few hours later to announce their release although they were still being questioned. CPJ executive director Joel Simon said the possibility that Quintal’s devices had been compromised was “extremely alarming.” Twitter later suspended her account. “We unreservedly condemn the arrest of these two staunch press freedom defenders” said Arnaud Froger, the head of RSF’s Africa desk. “The Tanzanian authorities have a duty to ensure the safety of these two journalists and their freedom of movement.” RSF is extremely concerned about the rapid decline in press freedom in Tanzania. Azori Gwanda, a reporter for Mwananchi, the leading Swahili-language newspaper, has not been seen since disappearing nearly a year ago while investigating a series of murders of local officials in the eastern Pwani region. Tanzania is ranked 93rd out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2018 World Press Freedom Index after falling ten places in the space of a year, one of the biggest falls registered by any country.

If the authorities want to criticise journalists, let them follow the normal procedures.” The two journalists, Ali Amar (managing editor) and Mouaad Rhandy (reporter), of the weekly Journal hebdomadaire, were held by Moroccan police for three hours on 23 October at the border with the Spanish enclave of Ceuta, in northern Morocco. They were interrogated by intelligence officials about a report they wrote in the latest issue of the paper and told they could not leave the country.The report, which appeared on 19 October, included an interview with Moulay Zine Zahidi, former head of the finance company Credit Immobilier et Hotelier (CIH), who is on the run from police. It contained revelations about the running of CIH, which is being investigated by parliament and which involves several leading politicians. The journalists were first brought before detectives who handed them a summons in connection with the Zahidi case. They were then interrogated by intelligence police. “They searched our car from top to bottom, ripped out the seats and seized our mobile phones, our papers and a camera,” Amar told Reporters Without Borders. The newspaper’s publisher, Aboubakr Jamai, called the interrogation “outrageous” and said it should have been done as part of a legal procedure.On the eve of the country’s 27 September parliamentary elections, Reporters Without Borders called on candidates to pledge support for freedom of expression in Morocco.

DOJ establishes transnational elder fraud strike force

DOJ establishes transnational elder fraud strike force

first_imgiStock/monkeybusinessimages(WASHINGTON) — the Justice Department has formed a transnational elder fraud strike force to combat the growing international problem of elder fraud.Elder fraud is when fraudsters prey on older victims who can be more susceptible to when approached to give money to sympathetic causes and in some cases threatened and harassed by criminals.Recently, three Peruvian men pleaded guilty to extorting older Americans through a Spanish-speaking call center.“For example, one such script directed the callers to falsely and fraudulently claim to be government attorneys and to state that the victims faced lawsuits and fines for not paying for or receiving packages. Other scripts included similar stories where the callers falsely claimed to be attorneys with courts or credit bureaus in the United States,” the indictment in the case reads.The effort, announced Thursday, combines six U.S. Attorney’s offices from California to Georgia, FBI Special Agents and the Postal Inspection Agency — all in an effort to combat elder fraud in the United States.“Fraud against the elderly is on the rise,” Attorney General William Barr said in a release. “One of the most significant and pernicious causes for this increase is foreign-based fraud schemes. The new Transnational Elder Fraud Strike Force will bring together the expertise and resources of our prosecutors, federal and international law enforcement partners, and other government agencies to better target, investigate, and prosecute criminals abroad who prey on our elderly at home. The Department of Justice is committed to ending the victimization of elders across the country.”Earlier this year, the attorney general announced the largest ever crackdown on elder fraud in country by highlighting the case of William Webster, the former FBI director who was targeted for months by scammers abroad.“It doesn’t matter where these criminals live. We’re committed to keeping our elderly citizens safe, whether they’re being targeted door-to-door, over the phone, or online, from thousands of miles away,” FBI Director Christopher Wray said.Barr has said that he had been a victim of one of the scams in 2017. While he was not attorney general at the time, fraudsters asked for money using his old official portrait.He highlighted his story at a roundtable event in March.“People took my official Justice Department portrait from 1992, so I was looking pretty good in 1992 and they put it up on Facebook and other online sites and I was telling people as the former attorney general I had access to special federal grant money and if they just sent some money I could tell them how to get some major grants,” he explained.Barr said he had the pages taken down, but from time to time even leading up to when he was nominated to be attorney general he would get calls from people around the country which he called “heartbreaking.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
