Una vida santa: Hiram Hisanori Kano convirtió el campo de…

By

first_img Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Rector Bath, NC Curate Diocese of Nebraska Rector Albany, NY Las memorias del Rdo. Hiram Hisanori Kano, Nikkei Farmer on the Nebraska Plains, se publicaron en inglés en 2010.El obispo Scott Hayashi, de Utah, presidió la eucaristía en que se le rindió tributo a Kano, que murió en 1988, a muy poco de cumplir cien años. El 24 de octubre será el día oficial para la conmemoración de Kano, quien escribió Nikkei Farmer on the Nebraska Plains [Un granjero nikeí en las llanuras de Nebraska], unas memorias que recorren los primeros años de su vida en Japón hasta que se muda a Estados Unidos (nikeí se refiere a los japoneses en la diáspora). Incluyó relatos de su época en los varios campos de internamiento donde más de 100.000 japoneses o de ascendencia japonesa fueron obligados a vivir durante la segunda guerra mundial. En los campos, Kano dirigía cultos, ministraba a los que se encontraban cerca de él y les enseñaba, incluidos sus carceleros, otros reclusos y alemanes prisioneros de guerra.“Estuvo ausente tres años” recordaba su hijo Cyrus Kano, de 94 años, que junto con otros miembros de la familia y amigos asistieron al oficio religioso de la Convención.El Rdo. Fred Vergara, misionero de la Sociedad Misionera Nacional y Extranjera para el ministerio asioamericano, dijo que es importante que voces y testimonios tales como el de Kano se conmemoren y se incluyan en las constantes conversaciones de la Iglesia para inspirar a las generaciones futuras.Adeline Kano, de 87 años, dijo que ella seguía en directo la eucaristía desde la iglesia episcopal de San Pablo [St. Paul’s Episcopal Church] in Fort Collins, Colorado, donde su padre sirviera ocasionalmente cuando ya estaba jubilado.Myrne Watrous, feligresa de San Pablo que asistió a la eucaristía de la Convención en Salt Lake City, recalcó que el honor era merecido. “Si uno se fija en la vida de los santos, así fue la suya”, dijo ella de Kano, a quien conoció. “Él abandonó una vida de riqueza para convertirse en un granjero de Nebraska y predicar la palabra de Dios, divulgar el mensaje y recorrer el camino”.La nieta Susan Kano dijo que la sorprendía el tamaño del culto y la conmemoración. El único indicio que ella tuvo del papel de su abuelo en la comunidad fue la celebración de sus 50 años de matrimonio para él y su abuela, Aiko Ivy Kano. “La gente no cesaba de estrecharme la mano —cientos de personas— y de decirme ‘su abuelo es un santo’” recordaba ella.Agregó que ella consideraba que el tiempo que el pasó en los campos [de internamiento] fue un don para su ministerio. “Él tuvo una vida maravillosa”, afirmó.Las otras personas incluidas para la conmemoración litúrgica en la Resolución A055 fueron: Charles Raymond Barnes (a quien se le conmemoró en la eucaristía del 2 de julio), Artemisia Bowden, Albert Schweitzer y Dag Hammarskjold.El Rdo. Hiram KanoCyrus Kano, ingeniero mecánico jubilado que vive en Cape Cod, Massachusetts, dijo que su padre querría ser recordado “como un hombre de Dios”.Respecto a sus experiencias en el campo de internamiento, Kano convirtió la adversidad en territorio fértil para la misión: “Él dijo, bien, Dios me puso aquí, ¿qué es lo que Él quiere que yo haga?” recordaba su hijo.Además de organizar un colegio en el campamento, donde enseñaba inglés y otros cursos, llevó a cabo estudios de la naturaleza y dirigió oficios de culto mientras estuvo encarcelado.Kano inmigró a Estados Unidos después de haber tenido un encuentro juvenil con William Jennings Bryan en su natal Japón que despertó su sed de aventuras, según cuenta su hija, Adeline Kano. Sus orígenes eran privilegiados: “Mi abuelo era el gobernador de la prefectura de Kagoshina”, explicó Kano, de 87 años, durante una entrevista telefónica desde su hogar en Fort Collins.Al principio, Kano obtuvo una maestría en economía agrícola en la Universidad de Nebraska y no tardó en convertirse en activista y líder entre los “issei” o la comunidad nipoamericana de primera generación, muchos de los cuales habían venido a laborar en la agricultura o en los ferrocarriles.El Rvdmo. George Allen Beecher, entonces obispo de la Diócesis Misionera de Nebraska Occidental, oyó hablar del activismo de Kano en 1921, cuando los legisladores del estado estaban contemplando una legislación que excluía a los inmigrantes japoneses de poseer o heredar tierras, o incluso de arrendarlas por más de dos años. El proyecto de ley hasta les prohibía poseer acciones en compañías que ellos hubieran formado.Kano y Beecher se conocieron y viajaron junto al capitolio estatal para hablarles a los legisladores, quienes finalmente aprobaron una medida mucho menos restrictiva, según cuenta Kano en sus memorias.Beecher persuadió a Kano, varios años después, de que se convirtiera en misionero para la comunidad nipoamericana [de Nebraska], que entonces se calculaba en unas 600 personas. En 1925, Kano aceptó y la familia se mudó a North Platte. Tres años más tarde fue ordenado diácono y prestó servicios en dos congregaciones de misión. La iglesia de Santa María [St. Mary’s] en Mitchell y San Jorge [St. George’s] en North Platte. Fue ordenado al presbiterado en 1936.— La Rda.

Police departments in Florida and four other states launched a weeklong safety initiative to slow down drivers called “Operation Southern Shield”.The initiative started yesterday and continues through Sunday, July 23rd. According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, speeding is the cause of 30 percent of the traffic deaths in the United States each year. The campaign aims to reduce the number of drivers who are speeding, impaired, distracted and not wearing seat belts, according to the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs, which oversees grants used for the program.Extra patrols are being funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Statistics from the agency show wrecks killed about 35,000 people in the United States in 2015, an increase of 7 percent from 2014. In four of the five states participating in Operation Southern Shield, traffic fatalities increased in 2015. Alabama, Florida, Georgia and South Carolina saw higher fatalities, while deaths were down slightly in Tennessee.Operation Southern Shield is being held in July between other major highway safety campaigns to coincide with the larger-than-normal numbers of drivers on roads because of summer travel, officials said.

Creating disguised transparency ambiances such as gardens, patios with pergolas, and openings partially protected by brises, Architecture has provided to tenants the desired sunlight, ventilation and privacy. Set in Vila Madalena, western district of São Paulo, a very intensively socially and culturally agitated region, this 400 m² residence was designed by architect Monica Drucker for a couple with three small children.Save this picture!DiagramThe project occupies the whole lot. The sides have gardens, and the home faces the greenery, making the distinction between interior and exterior very slight.

At the façade, the horizontalness is enhanced by the generous cumaru sliding window, which protects the glazed openings.

Maintaining the private/secret nature of the site was also a requirement.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergAn initial proposal to simply add a glass pavilion living room to the existing house appeared to fulfil the brief. Keeping the house single storey kept the building low enough not to have a view of nearby houses but adding the new space to the north of the existing house located the main living space in a position with a more commanding view over the woods below to the Solent beyond.Save this picture!Floor PlanAs the design developed however it became obvious that the size and standard of the new extension would only serve to exaggerate the cramped and substandard nature of the existing house. A decision was taken in favour of wholesale redevelopment; maintaining the concept of the initial proposal but ensuring that the completed project had a coherence and consistency of quality.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergThe house is approached from a generally suburban and unremarkable road down gravel drive through a wood. The initial view of the house is deliberately unclear. A long sinuous reflective black wall sitting amongst the trees conceals the presence of the house and beyond. Views of the sea are also only hinted at with glimpses.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergOn entering the house through a huge rough sawn timber door the visitor is lead along a broad sweeping curved corridor down which the main living space, the internal and external living areas and the stunning views beyond slowly become apparent. The utter and apparently almost structureless, transparency of the living area is offset by the timber clad density of the bedroom block the two sections being held together by the black screen wall running north south on the east side of the house.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergBedrooms generally have corner locations with micro views within the property but the main living space with terraces both to the north and south has long views to the north and west.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergRebuilding rather than extending allowed the whole house to be designed in a more sustainable level than the existing property. The building is heated using a ground source heat pump running off a series of 40m bore holes. The heat pump also provides the hot water and heating to the swimming pool and in summer provides cooling to the floors: – replenishing the borehole in the process.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergRainwater is harvested for flushing WCs and for external taps. Solar heating for hot water was considered but rejected as there were operational problems on a property which in only used intermittently. Similarly a wind turbine was rejected for a number of reasons, including planning, wind profile, and pay back time.Save this picture!© Morley Von SternbergThe main bedroom block and all external walls are constructed using 280mm thick lightweight clay honeycombe ‘Zeigler’ blocks giving very high levels of insulation whilst the glazed pavilion has deep overhangs ensuring that solar gain is used to best advantage during winter months but avoided during the summer. The dark living room floor also absorbs solar gain reducing the load in the underfloor heating.Project gallerySee allShow lessVideo: Leibar&Seigneurin on their “Sculptural” Social Housing Project in AngletVideosLeventis Art Gallery / Feilden Clegg Bradley StudiosSelected Projects Share Year:  General Contractor: Photographs:  Morley von Sternberg Landscape Design: CopyAbout this officeThe Manser Practice Architects + DesignersOfficeFollowProductsSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesUnited KingdomPublished on November 15, 2014Cite: “Sea Glass House / The Manser Practice Architects + Designers” 15 Nov 2014.

Indigenous Nations unified: ‘No to pipelines! Yes to sovereignty’

By

first_imgThousands of Indigenous people from more than 200 Native Nations, as well as non-Native supporters, have swelled the numbers of those blocking construction of the Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) at Standing Rock in North Dakota. These protectors of the water seek to thwart the plans of a Texas-based corporation, Energy Transfers, that is attempting to build a pipeline that threatens the clean drinking water of millions and desecrates sacred burial sites of the Oceti Sakowin (the “Great Sioux Nation”).There are 7,000 to 10,000 people at Standing Rock as we go to press in mid-September – ranging from Native people from throughout the Americas, a Maori delegation from Aotearoa/New Zealand and Kanaka Maoli from Hawaii, Palestinian solidarity groups, Black Lives Matter activists and white environmentalists.#NoDAPL water protectors are encamped immediately outside the Standing Rock Reservation, on treaty land, and are organized into multiple camps, including the Sacred Stone Camp and the Red Warrior Camp.The #NoDAPL struggle has become an unprecedented, historic uprising in defense of Indigenous sovereignty and the right to clean water. As people in the camps often say, “Water Is Life. Mni Wiconi.”Background to the struggleOriginally, DAPL was supposed to go through Bismarck, N.D., but was rerouted to Standing Rock over concerns by Bismarck’s mostly white population of risk to the city’s water supply. Energy Transfers then made plans to build DAPL under the Missouri, Mississippi and Big Sioux rivers in violation of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe’s federally protected rights.The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe (SRST) objected, and some protectors began to camp in a planned construction area in April. But on July 26, the Obama administration via the Army Corps of Engineers gave a quiet go-ahead to the route, giving SRST only a 48-hour notice that digging was to begin.Multiple arrests occurred in August as the protectors valiantly blocked a road to keep pipeline workers from offloading heavy equipment and locked down onto construction equipment.On Sept. 3, the company unexpectedly began excavation at a sacred burial site. Led by people from the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires of the Great Sioux Nation) and other Indigenous nations, protectors intervened to stop the desecration. The company sent in private security guards who set attack dogs on the people. The security guards were from G4S, a company notorious for brutal prison abuse in the U.S. and Palestine.The scene recalled the horrific police-dog attacks on Black civil rights protesters in the U.S. South. Many Indigenous people also remarked on the fact that Christopher Columbus and his men had used specially bred dogs to attack and eat Arawak, Taino and other Indigenous People more than 500 years ago.Big business interests pushed back on Sept. 8 when the governor of North Dakota, a major pipeline booster, called out the state’s National Guard to “protect” the oil corporations and banks against the thousands of Indigenous people and their supporters protecting their own land and water. These courageous defenders and water protectors were smeared repeatedly by North Dakota authorities and described as “agitators” by the commanding general of the NDNG.On Sept. 9, a federal district judge refused to block the DAPL permit, ruling against the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. But within minutes, a joint statement was issued by the Departments of the Interior, of Justice, and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, temporarily halting construction bordering Lake Oahe on the Missouri River while more environmental studies are conducted. The government also promised to meet with national tribal leaders and reconsider issues of tribal consent to these sorts of projects.Native-led resistance to DAPL has continued, unbroken by attack dogs, hired goons, state troopers, National Guard and other forces of repression. International outrage at the dog attacks led to a breakthrough in corporate media coverage, which had largely been ignoring what was happening.Police arrest protectorsOn Sept. 13, police in riot gear arrested 22 protectors and medics, as well as some independent journalists, as the protectors were trying to block construction by nonviolent direct action in one of the many areas where pipeline work is taking place.While these arrests are taking place, none of the security guards has been charged with the assaults against protectors at the construction site.The federal government could simply pull all the permits and cancel this project, but it has not chosen that course. It did not mandate an end to work at the multiple sites that the protectors are defending. For now, the federal government has only delayed some work, while the company is building in many areas, including in other states such as Iowa, where arrests are also taking place.On the other hand, this reprieve was a victory, because the Obama administration was forced to intervene entirely due to the immense strength and resolve of Indigenous people in the #NoDAPL movement and the outpouring of support from so many non-Native people.Perhaps the U.S. government thought that, by issuing a temporary halt, people would believe everything was fine and just go home. To the contrary, thousands more people have poured into the camps, because it is clear that continued vigilance is required.Unprecedented unity of Native and non-Native peopleDallas Goldtooth from the Indigenous Environmental Network and a veteran organizer of the Keystone XL fight, commented to Yes magazine about the historic support from Indigenous Nations at Standing Rock: “I don’t think there has ever been as large a mobilization and a unified, unilateral Indian Country support like this. We’ve had chairmen, traditional chiefs, chairwomen, the leaders of the leaders of Indian Country, who have come to this camp.“Also, we’ve had a lot of non-Native allies that are 100 percent supportive of the fight and struggle here because they see the connections…. [B]ecause the messaging is that water is life, so many people can connect with that. Whether you’re Native or non-Native, whether you’re from Chicago or Detroit or New Orleans or up in the Bakken, we all understand the importance of protecting the water. That brings us together.”The struggle is not over. Our support continues to be crucial. We need to continue to support the Water Protectors and the encampments. We must demand all charges be dropped against those who were arrested. We must insist on the removal of the National Guard and other police and private security guard harassment. We must defend the sovereignty of Native Nations. We must support ongoing struggles against pipelines and fracking.Ways you can helpCALL Gov.

Additionally, the Fed’s survey revealed that consumer expectations of home-price changes remained stable at their recent low level of 3.0% in April, the fifth consecutive reading at this level.Household income and spending both increased, according to the survey. Median expected household income growth increased slightly from 2.8% in March to 2.9% in April, moving just above its trailing 12-month average of 2.8%. Median household spending growth expectations increased from 3.1% in March to 3.3% in April. Spending growth expectations have been volatile and exhibit seasonality.Fewer Americans are concerned about unemployment as well. Mean unemployment expectations—or the mean probability that the U.S. unemployment rate will be higher one year from now—decreased 1.5 percentage points in April, to 35.7%, and is now 4.9 percentage points below its almost five-year high reached in January.According to the latest Fannie Mae Home Purchase Sentiment Index (HPSI), despite the upbeat economic activity, many are still pessimistic about the housing market.“While home selling confidence remains strong and more consumers on net expect mortgage rates to decline over the next year, respondents walked back some of their buying optimism from March,” said Doug Duncan, SVP and Chief Economist at Fannie Mae. “Improving perceptions of income gains and a softening home price growth outlook should help support housing demand. However, increasing expectations among consumers that mortgage rates will continue to be favorable for some time will likely gain additional support following last week’s Fed meeting – and may also be reducing their urgency to buy.”The consumer outlook on whether now is a good time to sell has remained relatively unchanged, at 43%, but down 2% year over year. Additionally, the net share of Americans who say mortgage rates will go down over the next 12 months increased 5 percentage points to -40%. This component is up 8 percentage points from the same time last year.

The Audubon Collection will close on March 7 and the “Brass Rubbings” on April 19.Four painters from Montgomery will be featured in March and two local artists, the late Jean Lake and Pugh Windham, will be featured in April. “I love to see people from our community featured at the Johnson Center,” Gibson said. “Ann has been so generous in sharing the brass rubbings she did when she was in Europe. When you get people from the local community involved in what we are doing at the Johnson Center and in the arts, you know that you are doing something right.”Richard Metzger said, too, that the attendance at Sunday’s reception is an indication that the arts are moving in the right direction.Although many of those who attended the reception were first and foremost interested in Williams’ brass rubbings, they found the Audubon exhibition to be fascinating as well, Metzger said. “The brass rubbings are a rare opportunity for those of us, who will never get to travel to England, Scotland or Germany, to see the architecture, the tombs and the iconic figures of ancient history,” he said. “The “Brass Rubbings” exhibit is on the lower level of the Johnson Center and works well with the brick walls and alcoves there.“We also have a mold that Ann has made available to us. Visitors to the Johnson Center can do a rubbing that can be framed and hung in their homes or offices.”The Audubon collection is featured in the main gallery and those who attended the reception took advantage of the opportunity to see both exhibits.“The Audubon Collection is fabulous,” Metzger said. “We are very fortunate and pleased that the Jule Collins Smith Museum of Art in Auburn was agreeable to loan it to us. It is an outstanding collection of American ornithology. James Audubon (1785-1851) dedicated his life to documenting every bird in North America. And, that he was able to do so in such great detail without the use of a camera is amazing.” Mack Gibson, chair of the Troy-Pike Cultural Arts Center Foundation, never tries to hide his excitement about the arts in Troy and Pike County.But, when “the arts” include a local artist, he gets “just plum giddy.”Gibson said he couldn’t be more excited or prouder than he was Sunday afternoon when the community came out in support of the opening reception for “Brass Rubbings” from the collection of Ann Williams of Troy and “Selections from the Louise Hauss and David Brent Miller Audubon Collection.” Sponsored Content Book Nook to reopen Skip Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Print Article Troy falls to No. 13 Clemsonlast_img read more
