Justo Andrés y los que asistieron a la celebración en su honor en la iglesia de San Juan, Stockton. Foto de Lewis Gale.[Episcopal News Service] El espíritu misionero innovador del Rdo. Justo Andrés puede ayudar a iniciar un resurgimiento del ministerio filipino en la iglesia episcopal de San Juan Evangelista [Episcopal Church of St. John the Evangelist ] en Stockton, California, según dijera el Rdo. Fred Vergara, misionero del Ministerio Asioamericano de la Iglesia Episcopal.Hace unos 30 años, Andrés fundó la Misión Filipina de la Santa Cruz en San Juan, en la Diócesis Episcopal de San Joaquín, y el 16 de noviembre la comunidad diocesana se reunió para celebrar ese legado y su 85º. cumpleaños, así como las posibilidades de un nuevo ministerio.David Rice, obispo de San Joaquín, ofició en la eucaristía en honor de Andrés y dijo que el oficio conmemoraba el llamado de Andrés en 1983 a la comunidad de Stockton y “el ministerio que él había brindado, el importante lugar que él ostenta en la vida de la Diócesis de San Joaquín y en la comunidad filipina y la forma en que él ha vivido tan fielmente su sacerdocio en medio nuestro.“Esta es una respuesta a nuestro contexto tal como lo hemos visto, experimentado y hemos sido partícipes de él en la zona de Stockton”, añadió Rice. “Creemos que responder a esa parte de nuestro panorama, de nuestra población y de nuestra comunidad, es lo que debe hacerse”.Andrés con frecuencia presidió oficios para obreros migrantes en los campos o para los marinos a bordo de buques transoceánicos que anclaban en el puerto de Stockton. La Misión de la Santa Cruz [Holy Cross Mission] sirvió como una agencia satélite del antiguo Servicio de Inmigración y Naturalización de EE.UU., ayudando a muchos a obtener la ciudadanía norteamericana.Él también sirvió como traductor dentro del sistema judicial de Stockton y fue miembro del comité asesor de la policía.En una entrevista telefónica con Episcopal News Service, Madeline Ruíz, cuñada de Andrés y hablando en su nombre, ya que él padece de sordera debido a la edad, dijo que él se sentía entusiasmado “pero sorprendido por la celebración.“Me preguntó por qué lo honraban”, dijo Ruíz. “Le dije, porque empezaste el ministerio filipino en San Juan y ahora que han recuperado la iglesia quieren hacerte este reconocimiento”.Bajo el liderazgo de Andrés, la congregación de la Santa Cruz floreció e incluyó a filipinos, latinos, personas del sudeste asiático y angloparlantes entre sus miembros. La congregación se dispersó cuando las diferencias teológicas dividieron la diócesis en 2008. La propiedad de San Juan la retuvo un grupo disidente, pero fue devuelta a la Iglesia Episcopal a principios de este año.Rice dijo que la diócesis está contemplando revitalizar su ministerio entre la comunidad filipina. “Estamos apreciando, orando, contemplando, ponderando y reflexionando cómo podemos seguir organizando y desarrollando ese ministerio”.La Rda. Kate Cullinane, canóniga del Ordinario y sacerdote a cargo de San Juan, dijo que alrededor de 200 simpatizantes [de Andrés] habían asistido a la reunión y a una jubilosa recepción que le siguió.La recepción incluyó comida y bailes filipinos tradicionales, así como piezas coreográficas, contó ella. Hubo también serenatas para Andrés, en la que cada uno de los participantes le presentó una flor.“Me encanta que vinieran tantas personas de las vecinas congregaciones filipinas y de las otras congregaciones cercanas del deanato” en apoyo de Andrés y de este oficio, dijo Cullinane en un correo electrónico a ENS.Revivir el ministerio será un esfuerzo de colaboración dentro de la diócesis, agregó. “No vemos esto como un proyecto de San Juan, sino como un proyecto del deanato del norte”.Andrés nació en Bacarra, en la provincia de Ilocos, del Norte de Filipinas, siendo el más pequeño de siete hijos. Se educó en el Seminario Teológico de San Andrés [St. Andrew’s Theological Seminary] y en la Universidad del Extremo Oriente en Manila, y fue ordenado al sacerdocio en 1955 por el Rvdmo. Isabelo Delos Reyes Jr., obispo máximo de la Iglesia Independiente Filipina.Su primera asignación parroquial fue en la ciudad de Ozamiz, en la sureña región filipina de Mindanao, antes de aceptar un llamado a Maui. Él se encontró entre un trío de sacerdotes que fueron parte de la primera oleada de sacerdotes filipinos llamados a la Iglesia Episcopal.Otros dos sacerdotes, el Rdo. Timoteo Quintero y el Rdo. Jacinto Tabili, también aceptaron llamados a servir en Hawái. Quintero fundó la iglesia de San Pablo en Honolulú y Tabili prestó servicios en Hilo, la isla mayor de Hawái, pero luego regreso para convertirse en obispo en las Filipinas, según explicó Vergara. A principio de los años sesenta, a Andrés lo llamaron a servir en la iglesia del Buen Pastor [Good Shepherd Church] en Wailuku, en la isla de Maui.En 1983, Andrés aceptó un llamado a servir en San Juan, Stockton. Él es el único superviviente de la primera oleada de pastores filipinos que trabajaron con la Iglesia Episcopal, dijo Vergara. Raquel Nancy Andrés, su esposa y compañera en el ministerio, falleció en 2009.Vergara, que predicó en la eucaristía del 16 de noviembre, resaltó que San Juan fue organizada al año siguiente de que se fundara Sockton y desempeñó un papel fundamental en el desarrollo de ese municipio californiano, agregó.Los asiáticos y provenientes de las islas del Pacifico componen el 22 por ciento de los 300.000 residentes de Stockton, según datos del Censo de EE.UU. de 2013.“Nos reunimos aquí hoy en nombre de Cristo para atestiguar la obra de creación y recreación de Dios”, dijo Vergara a los asistentes al oficio bilingüe en San Juan.“En esta hermosa ciudad de Stockton, Dios comenzará su obra con ustedes y conmigo. Juntos, seremos el instrumento de Dios para empezar el resurgimiento, la renovación y la re-creación de San Juan.“Este es el reto para nosotros, redescubrir el tesoro que hay en San Juan e invertir nuestros talentos en orar por el resurgimiento del destino de Stockton”, afirmo.“Así como su historia está vinculada a la de Stockton, así el resurgimiento de Stockton está vinculado al resurgimiento de San Juan —y el destino de Stockton está vinculado al de San Juan. Al resurgimiento espiritual de San Juan, le seguirá el resurgimiento de Stockton en paz, progreso y prosperidad”.–La Rda. Pat McCaughan es corresponsal de Episcopal News Service.

TV journalists take united stand against systematic censorship

first_imgNews March 26, 2021 Find out more Crimean journalist “confesses” to spying for Ukraine on Russian TV Organisation September 7, 2020 Find out more to go further UkraineEurope – Central Asia News UkraineEurope – Central Asia Receive email alerts Ukrainian media group harassed by broadcasting authoritycenter_img Help by sharing this information News Ukraine escalates “information war” by banning three pro-Kremlin media Reporters Without Borders is disturbed by the latest evidence of government pressure and harassment of the media that has emerged since it addressed an open letter to President Viktor Yanukovych on 28 April.Several journalists employed by TSN, the news service of the popular TV station 1+1, issued an open letter yesterday condemning the censorship to which they are now being subjected. “We, TSN journalists, want to announce that censorship has been introduced into 1+1,” the letter began.They said they were forbidden to cover certain stories, while reports criticising the new government were being withdrawn for political reasons. They said permission to broadcast an item now had to be obtained from the station’s director-general, Oleksander Tkachenko, instead of their news editor. Affirming the right to ignore political considerations, they said they wanted to inform viewers rather than put out propaganda for this or that party.“Freedom of expression is not an empty shell, it is the basis of our profession,” the letter said. “It is the reason for which we categorically reject the pressure being put on us.” Demanding an immediate end to control over TSN and to “the shameful practice of directives and instructions,” they called for a return to basic principles of journalism – objectivity, balance and fairness. Warning that they would henceforth try to report every case of censorship they learn about, they finally announced they would go on strike if their demands were not met.Journalists at the STB television station followed suit today, issuing an open letter in which they, too, condemned the systematic censorship that has been introduced within their station in recent months. Since last January’s presidential elections, there had been changes not only to the priorities but also to the tone to be adopted when reporting the news, the letter said. “Irony must no longer be used when talking of political events or politicians,” it added.As this kind of pressure on the news media is unacceptable in a democratic country, Reporters Without Borders supports this initiative by the journalists and encourages all those who believe in a free press to do so too. Reporters Without Borders also urges the 1+1 management, which has just admitted some of the cases of censorship, to respect its journalists and allow them to work normally.

Attorney general’s office issues illegal warrant for writer’s arrest

first_imgNews Afghanistan : “No just and lasting peace in Afghanistan without guarantees for press freedom” AfghanistanAsia – Pacific Reporters Without Borders is very worried to learn that an arrest warrant was issued in Kabul on 30 January for Partaw Naderi, a well-known poet, writer and contributor to Afghan news media, in connection with a libel action by transport minister Davood Ali Najafi.“We call for the arrest warrant’s immediate withdrawal,” Reporters Without Borders said. “According to the media law, the attorney general’s office cannot initiate proceedings until requested by the commission for the verification of press offences. As the commission has not met and has not issued any request, the decision by the attorney general’s office to issue a warrant is illegal.”The origins of the case go back to August 2011, when several Afghan media including Tolo TV and the newspaper Mandegar published a letter by two transport ministry officials accusing Najafi of involvement in corruption within the ministry and involvement in electoral fraud in 2009, when he was a member of the independent electoral commission.The letter quoted Najafi as saying “It was me who had Karzai elected president,” implicitly recognizing that there was massive fraud.Naderi quoted from this letter in a May 2012 article for the newspaper Araman Mili, describing the minister’s comments as an insult to the democratic process and popular sovereignty.Although granted the right to reply in the same newspaper, Najafi filed a lawsuit against Naderi over his article and, on 3 February, attorney general’s office spokesman Bassair Azizi confirmed on Radio Azadi that a warrant had been issued for Naderi’s arrest.Reached by Reporters Without Borders, Naderi said: “I wrote my article on the basis of information that had been published several months earlier in the country’s news media.”The information ministry said the attorney general’s official notified the verification commission of the complaint, and then of the arrest warrant. But information ministry public relations adviser Zaryalai Nawabi acknowledged that “the case was never discussed by the commission and the commission did not issue its opinion.”“A week after Afghanistan’s marked rise in the 2013 Reporters Without Borders press freedom index (up 22 places to 128th), above all because there are no longer any journalists in prison, the authorities must ensure that the media law is respected,” Reporters Without Borders said.

Foreclosure filings, which include default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions, were down 26 percent year-over-year in May to the lowest level since December 2006.The report found that one in every 1,199 U.S. housing units had a foreclosure filing during the month.However, individual states saw monthly increases despite the overall national decline. Statewide, 21 states posted monthly increases in overall activity, with 11 states posting annual increases in foreclosure activity.”It’s not surprising that some of the states with the longest foreclosure timelines are those with markets still dealing with increasing foreclosure activity even as the country as a whole continues to hit new lows,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac. “On the other hand, the increase in bank repossessions in some states with shorter foreclosure timelines like California and Oregon demonstrates there is still some pent-up foreclosure activity in those states as well.”Bank repossessions also fell in May, hitting the lowest level seen since July 2007—an 82-month low. Lenders repossessed 28,373 U.S. properties in May, down 6 percent month-over-month and down 27 percent yearly.REO’s increased from the previous month in 25 states, including New York (117 percent), New Jersey (96 percent), Connecticut (85 percent), Maryland (40 percent), and Oregon (29 percent).Auctions fell as well, with RealtyTrac reporting that foreclosure auctions were scheduled for 47,085 U.S. properties in May, down 4 percent from April and down 22 percent from May 2013. Foreclosure auctions were at their lowest level since December 2006—an 89-month low.Auctions had a similar trend as REO properties, increasing from the previous month in 27 states. Auctions saw the largest gains in Utah (199 percent), Oregon (157 percent), New Jersey (70 percent), and Massachusetts (43 percent).Foreclosure starts declined in May as well, down 10 percent from the previous month and down 32 percent year-over-year to the lowest level since December 2005—a 101-month low. Foreclosure starts increased in 17 states, including Massachusetts (178 percent), Indiana (67 percent), Delaware (26 percent), New Jersey (15 percent), and New York (14 percent).

California’s Role in the National Housing Recovery

On a year-over-year basis, the market gained $1.9 trillion in value over 2017.Of all the markets across the country, one state accounted for nearly one-third of the value gained during the nationwide housing recovery—California. The report indicated that the housing market in the Golden State grew by $3.7 trillion since early 2012, making it the only state that gained more than $1 trillion in value since the market fell.Despite coming in a close second in terms of dollar contribution to the national housing recovery (a contribution of $937.9 billion, or 8.6 percent of the overall recovery), “the total value of all the homes in Florida is still $263.9 billion below its peak level,” the study indicated.”Seen from the rearview mirror, 2018 was a year of unusually strong, stable home value growth across the country,” said Aaron Terrazas, Senior Economist Zillow. “But cracks in the foundation are clearly starting to emerge. During the second half of the year, appreciation slowed sharply in the priciest corners of the country while it picked up in affordable hotspots. Periods of stability often precede periods of instability, and the outlook for 2019 is certainly both cloudier and blurrier than the outlook a year ago.”Breaking down the growth in home values even further, the study stated that the New York/New Jersey area was the single most valuable metro worth $3 trillion, or 9.1 percent of the national housing market. Four California markets–Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, and San Diego–were among the 10 most valuable metros in the country.  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Subscribe Share Save January 3, 2019 1,358 Views Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days agocenter_img The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago About Author: Radhika Ojha Tagged with: California Home home value HOUSING market Zillow The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Radhika Ojha is an independent writer and copy-editor, and a reporter for DS News.
