Thomas James Brown was elected Feb. 9 to become the 10th bishop of the Diocese of Maine.Brown, 48, was elected at a special convention in Bangor. One of five nominees, Brown was chosen by clergy and lay delegates on the third ballot. He received 57 votes in the clergy order and 84 votes in the lay order. Fifty clergy votes and 82 lay votes were needed on that ballot for an election.Brown is currently the rector of the Episcopal Parish of the Epiphany in Winchester, Massachusetts.The other nominees were:The Rev. Kenneth Brannon, rector, St. Thomas, Sun Valley, IdahoThe Rev. Anne Mallonee, executive vice president and chief ecclesiastical officer, Church Pension Group, New York CityThe Rev. Rachel Taber-Hamilton, rector, Trinity Episcopal Church, Everett, WashingtonThe Rev. Janet Waggoner, canon to the ordinary and transition ministry officer, Diocese of Fort Worth, TexasThe diocese made history with the election. Brown will become The Episcopal Church’s only openly gay and married bishop currently leading a diocese. He is married to the Rev. Thomas Mousin, who is currently the rector of St. John’s Episcopal Church in Charlestown, a neighborhood of Boston.The church currently has one other openly gay bishop. The Rt. Rev. Mary Glasspool was elected as bishop suffragan of the Diocese of Los Angeles in December 2009 and consecrated May 2010. She has been an assistant bishop in the Diocese of New York since April 2016. She is married to Becki Sander.The Rt. Rev. Gene Robinson became the first openly gay and partnered bishop in the Anglican Communion in 2003 and served as the Diocese of New Hampshire’s bishop until his retirement in January 2013. He and his then-partner of 25 years Mark Andrew were joined in a civil union in 2008 and married in 2010. They divorced in 2014.Robinson’s consecration and ordination became a flashpoint in both The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion. Early in 2008, then-Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams refused to invite Robinson to the decennial Lambeth Conference gathering of all the bishops in the Anglican Communion. Some other bishops refused to attend the conference due to theological disagreements with the main body of the church about the full inclusion of LGBTQ people and women in the life of the church.The Anglican Communion Office told Episcopal News Service on Fab. 12 that it had no comment Brown’s election.After the election, the Rev. Maria Hoecker, rector of St. Columba’s in Boothbay Harbor and president of the Diocese of Maine’s Standing Committee, said “We have been blessed by the Holy Spirit today with the election of Thomas Brown and the gifts he will bring as our next bishop,” according to a news release.The bishop-elect told the delegates via a video link, “I give God thanks and praise for this call, and the opportunity to continue building the church in Maine on Christ the solid rock. Bishop Lane and his family, along with the diocesan staff, and every congregation are in my prayers as they continue in the holy work of transition. To God be the glory.”Brown received his Master of Divinity from the Church Divinity School of the Pacific, an Episcopal Church seminary in Berkeley, California. He has served as rector of St. Michael Episcopal Church in Brattleboro, Vermont, and as the director of alumni and church relations at CDSP. Bishop-elect Brown has held many leadership positions in The Episcopal Church and in the Diocese of Massachusetts, and is currently chair of the Church Pension Fund’s board of trustees.Pending consent of a majority of the church’s bishops with jurisdiction and the diocesan standing committees, Brown will be ordained and consecrated on June 22 at St. Luke’s Cathedral in Portland. Presiding Bishop Michael Curry will officiate. Brown will succeed the Rt. Rev. Stephen T. Lane who has served the diocese since 2008 and will retire in June.– The Rev. Mary Frances Schjonberg is the Episcopal News Service’s senior editor and reporter.Editor’s note: This story was updated Feb. 12 to add information about the number of votes needed for an election and a response from the Anglican Communion Office.

When it comes to large scale residential buildings, a complex set of economic, urban, and regulatory systems sometimes seem to have left little room for architectural exploration. Architects often struggle to find a point of entry for inserting their creative perspective in a way that would rethink or progress the typology. The resulting buildings typically reflect the reality of the efficiency driven market – maximized footprint, relentless repetition, and lowest common denominator design appeal. Save this picture!© Poyao ShihWhen we were first approached by a prominent Taiwanese development company to work on the design of a brand new residential high rise, they expressed interest in finding an architectural approach that challenged these conventions. They were interested in a building that pushed architectural boundaries while simultaneously meeting their economic requirements.Save this picture!Floor plansCautiously optimistic, the developer proposed an arrangement that separated the development of the interior floor plans from the exterior elements, which included balcony floor plans, the front lobby and all facade design. This left us with 2.5 meters at the front elevation and 1.5m on the side elevations. While it certainly wasn’t what most architects would consider ideal, it was just enough to be our point of entry into what would be our office’s biggest project to date. Save this picture!© Poyao ShihOur proposal utilizes subtle variations in the geometry of the exterior paneling and layering of material to create a scheme that is not based on repetition but still accommodates the needs of the client. We deployed a strategy of “pixilated lines” by applying a set of exterior paneling in varying materials and differing geometries to run along the façade of the building as a series of pixilated lines. We also deployed a system of incrementally shifting balconies in conjunction with the panels to add more depth to the facade.Save this picture!Line and panel diagramsThese “lines” of panels extend from the ground to the top floor to give the illusion of depth and movement as well as formal continuity to the overall project. These “lines” often split in order to change material and the voids between “lines” of panels to add depth to the reading of the façade. By shifting sections of fritted glass, expanded aluminum screen, solid panels, and steel structure, the buildup of these small differences create large variations in the façade of the building. Save this picture!© Poyao ShihThe building includes a carefully considered weaving of four materials: 1) expanded aluminum mesh, 2) fritted glass, 3) solid panel, and 4) steel structure. This is to disrupt the repetitious and occasionally quirky floor plans, while still allowing for views beyond and providing a sun shading system.Save this picture!Exploded axonometric viewThe interplay between metal screens, glass, and solid panels is not merely aesthetic but it also performs functionally. This strategy simultaneously allows for natural light while reducing heat gain, provides privacy for rooms beyond, and it creates a buffer between the interior of the building adjacent elevated highway. And importantly, the exterior of the building communicates a more dynamic building- one that captures the spirit, scale, and multi-layered nature of the city.Save this picture!© Poyao ShihProject gallerySee allShow lessWater Park Aqualagon / Jacques Ferrier ArchitectureSelected ProjectsBujeon Glocal Vision Center / Lee Eunseok + Atelier KOMA, HEERIM Architects & PlannersSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:No. 79, Section 1, Minquan East Road, Zhongshan District, Taipei City, Taiwan (ROC)Location to be used only as a reference.

They confirmed that the Uruguayan and Chilean intelligence services continued to work clandestinely together long after the end of military rule. Reporters Without Borders calls on the government to intervene. UruguayAmericas Follow the news on Uruguay Help by sharing this information News Reporters Without Borders today urged the Uruguayan government to pledge to shed light on the suspicious theft of important confidential military documents from investigative journalist Eduardo Preve of TV news station Canal 10 in Montevideo on 26 March, three days after he had received them from a source.The documents are said to have supported claims that Uruguayan and Chilean military intelligence colluded during the 1990s to protect individuals accused of human rights violations under the military dictatorships of the preceding decades.“One can imagine how compromising these documents were for the military from the short period they remained in Preve’s possession,” Reporters Without Borders said. “Is the military split between those who favour transparency and those who favour secrecy? If such is the case, it falls to the government to intervene and shed every possible light on the practices that were current within the army and intelligence agencies during and after the military dictatorship.”The press freedom organisation added: “The circumstances of the theft are highly suspicious and it goes without saying that Preve’s complaint requires a thorough investigation. If recovered, we hope that the documents will be returned to Preve for the sake of the necessary fight for the truth.”Preve, who also writes for the daily El Observador, has for years been investigating the links between the armies and intelligence agencies of the six military dictatorships in South America that signed the Plan Condor in 1975 whereby they agreed to exchange intelligence and political prisoners. He also revealed that clandestine links continued long after the return to civilian rule in the 1980s and that human rights violators and key witnesses were smuggled from one country to another to escape justice.A case that Preve has investigated closely is that of Chilean chemist Eugenio Berríos, who collaborated with the 1973-90 Pinochet dictatorship, was evacuate to Uruguay in 1991 thanks to the intervention of the Chilean and Uruguayan intelligence services and was murdered in 1993. The Chilean judicial authorities have requested the extradition of three members of the Uruguayan military for their suspected role in the Berríos murder.According to Preve, the documents he received on 23 March corroborated the claim that the Uruguayan military gave protection in 1993 and 1994 to individuals who had been tried in absentia by the Chilean courts, not just the three Berríos murder suspects. “They consisted in part of copies of internal Uruguayan army notes about the coordination of activities with foreign intelligence agencies, especially the Chilean agencies,” Preve told Reporters Without Borders. “There were also the names and addresses of key witnesses who had been in touch with a Chilean civilian – the son of a senior official in the dictatorship – who was hiding out in Uruguay with the complicity of the military in both countries in order to avoid having to appear before the Chilean courts.”Preve left the documents in his car outside his apartment building when he returned home on the evening of 26 March. The daily newspaper Brecha said he had no reason to worry about their security as there are always two policemen on guard outside the building opposite, where the son of President Tabaré Vásquez lives, and on the night of the theft there were four policemen.Despite their presence, someone was able to force open the passenger door of Preve’s car and to take the time to select the documents for removal.Preve reported the theft to the police. “It is clear that a group of people involved in these intelligence operations between Uruguay and Chile do not want this information to be published now, especially as the documents included new names,” Preve told Reporters Without Borders. read more

STAFF REPORT Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News Activists Call for More Transparency after Council Approves Purchase of Helicopter Camera Upgrade By ANDRÉ COLEMAN, Managing Editor Published on Tuesday, April 21, 2020 | 4:02 pm More Cool Stuff 10 recommended0 commentsShareShareTweetSharePin it Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked * Business News Local activists called for more transparency in the Pasadena Police Department’s surveillance programs one day after the City Council approved a $420,000 upgrade to the department’s helicopter camera system.“Even though the COVID-19 pandemic raging in Pasadena and across the globe has caused a generational crisis the likes of which the world has not seen in decades, it was business as usual for the Pasadena Police Department,” Mohammad Tajsar, ACLU senior staff attorney and Pasadena resident, told Pasadena Now on Tuesday.“Yesterday’s vote to authorize the purchase of shiny new camera equipment at a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars while so many people are struggling is why we desperately need surveillance reform in the city.”At yesterday’s meeting, Vice President Tyron Hampton and Mayoral candidate Victor Gordo voted against the upgrade.“We agree with Councilmembers Gordo and Hampton that such a huge expenditure for an update in PPD’s helicopter’s cameras is a short sighted decision in the midst of the coronavirus crisis where many Pasadena residents are losing jobs and homes,” said Kris Ockerhauser.“Also, the fact that Chief Perez said the proposal had been in the works for a year, yet PPD never brought this powerfully enhanced surveillance technology to Public Safety for public review, demonstrates the need for a plan to assure transparency and accountability for the city’s increasing use and acquisition of surveillance technology. The recent revelation of the Department’s secret use of controversial facial recognition with no regulation should have been a wake up call to the Council for the need for greater oversight.”The department’s facial recognition software system scans mugshots and does not perform surveillance on local residents and requires detectives to determine if there is enough evidence to investigate a suspect further.Once installed, the new helicopter cameras are expected to enhance the capability of the Pasadena Police Air Operations Section to perform aviation support for ground officers and first responders.The air operations section operates five patrol helicopters seven days a week, providing a much needed safety barrier for police officers and other first responders, according to a Pasadena Police Department report.Aside from Pasadena, the unit also provides aerial support to the Foothill Air Support Team (FAST) and to Pasadena’s nearby cities, Glendale and Burbank. The helicopters patrol approximately 170 square miles of coverage in support of about 12 partner agencies in Pasadena and in the other cities.Pasadena flight crews are also frequently tasked with assisting other county, state and federal agencies in support of homeland security missions, infrastructure inspections, and critical incident planning, the report said.Pasadena patrol helicopters are currently equipped with the FLIR 8000/8500 analog IR camera system, purchased or acquired since the early 2000s, according to the report. According to city staff report, “the police department spends an average of $40,000 in annual maintenance, with components for cameras that “often fail due to age, corrosion, and long-term use.” faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Donald CommunityPCC- COMMUNITYVirtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPasadena Public WorksPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadena Herbeauty’First Daughters’: From Cute Little Kids To Beautiful Young WomenHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeauty10 Female Celebs Women Love But Men Find UnattractiveHerbeautyHerbeautyHerbeautyWant To Seriously Cut On Sugar?
