Rayford High fue electo e instalado como el tercer obispo provisional de la Diócesis Episcopal de Fort Worth el 3 de noviembre en la Universidad Estatal de Tarleton, en Stephenville, Texas, durante la 30ª. Convención Diocesana.La convención aprobó el 19 de septiembre la recomendación del Comité Permanente de la diócesis, que había llamado a High a servir como su próximo obispo provisional. High fue obispo sufragáneo de la Diócesis de Texas del 2003 al 2011.High sucede al Rvdmo. C. Wallis Ohl, quien se jubiló como obispo provisional al término de la convención diocesana. Ohl hizo un llamado a la elección de un obispo diocesano, un proceso que puede tomar más de dos años.“Esto marca un paso significativo en el crecimiento de la diócesis, ya que el proceso culminará en la elección de un obispo permanente”, según dice un parte de prensa diocesano.Ohl ha prestado servicios como obispo provisional desde noviembre de 2009, cuando sucedió al Rvdmo. Edwin F. Gulick Jr., entonces obispo de Kentucky, quien se convirtió en el primer obispo provisional de Fort Worth después de que la diócesis se reorganizara en febrero de 2009, forzada a hacerlo cuando, en noviembre de 2009, el anterior obispo y varios líderes diocesanos abandonaron la Iglesia Episcopal.“Me siento profundamente honrado y anonadado por el hecho de que la Diócesis Episcopal de Fort Worth me pidiera que fuera su obispo provisional”, dijo High, según el comunicado. “Estoy encantado y emocionado con esto y a la espera de trabajar con el laicado y el clero de la diócesis”.High dijo sentirse impresionado por el espíritu de amor y respeto que permeaba las discusiones de la convención. “Las personas discrepaban unas con otras, pero en amor”, afirmó. “Todo el mucho escuchó respetuosamente y votó devotamente. Ésta es una diócesis sana”.Ohl utilizó el tema de la construcción de un puente para su mensaje a la convención. “La metáfora de un puente es apropiada, no sólo mientras yo estoy en el proceso de irme y el obispo High sube a bordo, sino también mientras la Diócesis Episcopal de Fort Worth continúa creciendo “a la medida de la estatura de la plenitud de Cristo’” *Efesios 4:13 VRV).Él le recordó a los delegados y visitantes de la convención que la elección de otro obispo provisional no es “una medida para salir del paso; avanzamos hacia el momento en que seremos capaces de elegir y consagrar nuestro próximo obispo diocesano”.Antes de su elección como obispo, High, de 71 años, sirvió en la Diócesis de Texas como canónigo para los ministerios pastorales y enlace con el Hospital Episcopal de San Lucas [St. Luke’s Episcopal Hospital] en Houston. Sus 32 años de ministerio parroquial culminaron en su servicio como rector de la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s] en Waco. Él ha representado a la Diócesis de Texas como diputado a la Convención General en ocho ocasiones y fue nombrado humanitario del año en Waco.Natural de Houston, High se graduó en Sewanee: La Universidad del Sur, en Tennessee, y de la Escuela Teológica Episcopal en Cambridge, Massachusetts.High y su esposa Pat viven por ahora en Lake Jackson. Han estado casados durante 48 años y tienen tres hijos y seis nietos, todos los cuales viven en Fort Worth. Ellos se mudarán a Fort Worth a principios de 2013 cuando su nueva casa se encuentre terminada.— Traducción de Vicente Echerri.

In his message to Goddard graduates, Abu-Jamal never mentioned his own case. Instead, he challenged students to question the world of the 21st century and to seek answers to a world where “massive wars can be launched by rumors and innuendo; where the material interests of corporations are superior to the interests of working people, and remember — corporations are people — so sayeth the Supreme Court; and where the ecological threats to fresh-water supplies, clean air and the environment in American cities, pulls challenges that seem beyond arcane.” His message linked Gaza, Ferguson and Iraq (again) as the issues that face students and must be addressed.Abu-Jamal has come to be known as “the voice of the voiceless.” His case illustrates why prisons exist and who profits from them. Any attack on Mumia Abu-Jamal is an attack on all prisoners of this rotten system, whether confined behind prison walls or living in “general population” outside.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this Mumia Abu-Jamal More often than not college commencement speakers are corporate CEOs, bankers or politicians — the people who will exercise control over students’ futures by exploiting their labor, piling mountains of student loan debt on them or starting endless wars that threaten the very futures of them and their families.On Oct. 5, graduates of Goddard College Undergraduate Programs in Plainfield, Vt., had the rare opportunity to be addressed by a speaker of their choosing whose message was incredibly important and meaningful and with whom they could identify: Mumia Abu-Jamal, a student at the college in the late 1970s and an alumnus (Bachelor of Arts, 1996).That Abu-Jamal is currently incarcerated in Pennsylvania’s SCI Mahanoy prison, having been unjustly convicted and serving a life sentence for the murder of a Philadelphia policeman was not a problem for the Goddard graduates. Faculty member Dr. Herukhuti [H. Sharif Williams], co-chair of the Undergraduate Programs Institutional Review Board, explained that the majority of Goddard students are middle-aged, working adults who persevered to overcome significant obstacles to their lifelong learning and returned to college. He noted that Abu-Jamal, “a member of the millions of people incarcerated in the U.S.,” completed his degree while sitting on death row and “represents something incredibly important in the context of our commencement ceremony.”Mumia ‘raises provocative questions’ for students“He knows what it means to obtain a degree in the face of overwhelmingly challenging circumstances. He knows what it means to raise troubling and provocative questions that lead one to compelling answers.”Herukhuti went on to say, “The fact that Mumia is a polarizing figure does not make our choice of him as a commencement speaker problematic. The fact that we still live in a society in which we cannot engage in thoughtful discussion about what makes him polarizing without people resorting to death threats, hyperbole, smear campaigns and naked opportunism is what is problematic.”This was not Abu-Jamal’s first college commencement speech. In 1999, he addressed graduates of Evergreen State College in Olympia, Wash., and served as commencement speaker at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio, in 2000 despite being held in solitary confinement on death row at the time. Abu-Jamal was also made an honorary citizen of Paris and Saint-Denis, France, named a street after him.However, Goddard’s decision to hear Abu-Jamal was quickly denounced by politicians and members of the Fraternal Order of Police, who condemned the students’ choice and held a protest in Philadelphia while the graduation was in process. Nevertheless, the 20 Goddard graduates and their families and faculty stood their ground and were able to hear Abu-Jamal’s prerecorded video address, the full text of which is available on prisonradio.org.Pennsylvania Corrections Secretary John Wetzel acknowledged that prisoners have a constitutional right to phone access and admitted that the state could not prohibit it from happening. However, on Oct. 6, Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett, along with other right-wing politicians, district attorneys and members of the FOP gathered in Harrisburg, the state capital, to introduce legislation designed to silence Abu-Jamal and other prisoners.Their “victims’ rights bill” would give judges the power to grant “injunctive relief” to “prevent those convicted of violent crimes from causing their victims ‘mental anguish.’” Simply put, the proposed legislation would allow individuals who object to what is being said to initiate a gag order against individual prisoners.Bill would restrict free speechAndrew Hoover, legislative director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Pennsylvania, responded that the bill could restrict free speech rights of all felons, even after release. Hoover noted, “The legislature doesn’t have the power to punish speech it doesn’t like.” (Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct. 7)Abu-Jamal is an internationally celebrated, award-winning Black writer and radio journalist who has written eight books and hundreds of columns and articles while imprisoned. He is a former member of the Black Panther Party and one-time president of the Black Journalists’ Association.Prior to his incarceration, Abu-Jamal’s writings and commentaries challenged Philadelphia’s attacks on the MOVE organization and exposed the racism, brutality and corruption of the Philadelphia Police Department. He is credited with helping to lay the foundation for Philadelphia being one of the two cities whose police departments were indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice for brutality and corruption.That Abu-Jamal was a thorn in the side of the administration of then Mayor Frank Rizzo, previously head of the Philadelphia Police Department, is seen by many as the basis for his 1981 frame-up and conviction for the murder of a white police officer, Daniel Faulkner. Abu-Jamal maintains his innocence and millions around the world helped launch a campaign that resulted in his death sentence being overturned in 2011, after nearly 30 years on death row.This is by no means the first attempt of the state to silence Abu-Jamal. In 1996, after the Peoples Video Network aired “The Prison Industrial Complex,” an interview with Abu-Jamal, the Pennsylvania State Prison Authority ruled that no prisoner in the state could be taped for television or radio. In 1997, Temple University, threatened with funding cuts by then Gov. Tom Ridge, canceled all Pacifica Radio programming on its radio station, WRTI, because Pacifica’s Democracy Now program planned to air commentaries by Abu-Jamal. In 1999, Abu-Jamal successfully challenged an attempt by the state to prohibit him from writing after he published his first book, “Live from Death Row.”

Organisers of Interbake China 2007 – one of Asia’s largest international bakery exhibitions – say that Western expertise is very much in demand in the country, whether for machines, production, product design or packaging.With a population of 1.3 billion people and annual economic growth of 10% over the past nine years, China has an enormous baking market, which has seen a 14% increase in sales in recent years, according to Cherry Lee, project manager of organiser Canton Universal Fair Group.

When you need a couch restored, you call an upholstery business. When you’re the famous Sam Phillips Recording, and that couch once held the butts of legends like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and more, then you call Third Man Upholstery.Okay, let’s back track a bit here. Many fans of Jack White know that he worked in upholstery as a teenager, even famously hiding records in a handful of furniture items around the Detroit area. What the may not know is that White’s Third Man Records company has its own upholstery division, which is fully functional though presumably not a focus of the Third Man enterprise.White recently teamed with the famed Sun Records label, which notably discovered artists like Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and more, on a massive project to release selections from the Sun Records catalog on high quality LPs. Logically speaking, if Sam Phillips’ family called Jack White to restore their old recordings, then it would only make sense for White to restore their old couch too. Apparently, according to Rolling Stone, White personally took the job of restoring the couch, choosing the new fabric and color scheme of the historic furniture.And that’s how Jack White came to restore a couch that Bob Dylan and Johnny Cash once sat on.
[H/T Billboard] Following Saturday night’s fiery performance at Los Angeles’ Dodger Stadium, Dead & Company stuck around in the city of angels, performing an intimate benefit in the Hollywood Hills on Sunday night—marking the band’s first private charity event since it formed in 2015. With a ticket price of $5,000 (per Billboard‘s report), the backyard benefit dubbed “Rock Under The Stars” was open to around 200 fans and raised over $1.1 million for Oceana, the world’s largest ocean conservation and advocacy organization.While Billboard reports that the swanky event hosted 120 wealthy Deadheads from around the world, the outlet also notes that a number of high-profile Hollywood stars also made it out for the show. Actors Jeff Goldblum, Ed Begley Jr., and Dean Norris; actress Kelly Lynch; acclaimed composer Thomas Newman; movie producer Roger Birnbaum, and movie producer/writer Mitch Glazer were all in attendance. Notably, though unable to attend, Seth MacFarlane donated $250,000 to the cause in addition to a number of other Hollywood elites.As Jeff Goldblum joked to Billboard about his non-status as a Deadhead, “I love that song, ‘Satin Doll’. … Maybe I’m mixing them up with someone else. They do a lot of mellow Brazilian tunes, don’t they?… I know I have to take LSD at some point.”Mickey Hart also spoke to a representative from Billboard after the show, discussing the juxtaposition of playing a crowd of 30,000 on Saturday and moving to an exclusive backyard party with less than 300 in attendance the next day, “Going from a stadium to a house party is a very interesting dynamic, but the point is a musician is privileged to be a musician and musicians should give back that privilege.”On the importance of the event, Hart added, “In general, you gotta defend the treasures. One of them is the oceans and you have to defend it however you can. You have to fight the evil that’s in the White House now with everything you have. So any night I can raise a million dollars is a good night.”By all accounts, it seems like all the members of Dead & Company was very on board to sign onto the cause. As Bernie Cahill, one of Dead & Company’s co-managers with Irving Azoff and Steve Moir, explained, “[Dead & Company] get[s] asked to do a million of these things.” He continued, “They’ve very focused on the health of our oceans. … Bill [Kreutzmann] lives in Hawaii, Bob [Weir] lives on the water. Oceana really resonated with them.”Furthermore, Keith Addis, co-founder of a leading management and production company and president of Oceana, noted that Dead & Company easily signed on for the benefit, which he hosted at his home. He explained that the band agreed to perform after one call to Cahill. In contrast, Addis noted that normally booking a band for the intimate gathering takes three months, with past performers including Sting and Don Henley.As for the show itself, Dead & Company offered up by all accounts a stellar show. The group weaved through “Dark Star”, opening the show with the tune then later jamming on the melody between takes on “Samson & Delilah” and “Brown-Eyed Women”. Notably, the band’s performance of “Samson & Delilah” was somewhat of a “tour debut” for the group, marking the first time the song has been played this tour—the fan-favorite track is generally reserved for Sundays and the band hasn’t played any Sundays this tour thus far.You can check out the setlist and some videos from last night’s show below.Setlist: Dead & Company | Oceana’s 3rd-Annual Rock Under The Stars | Los Angeles, CA | 7/8/2018Set: Dark Star v. 1, Samson & Delilah, Dark Star jam, Brown-Eyed Women, When I Paint My Masterpiece, Franklin’s Tower, Dark Star v. 2, Shakedown Street, Touch of Grey
