The government is consulting on plans to introduce a permanent cap next spring, and has put a temporary limit in place until then. Home secretary Theresa May has limited the number of non-EU migrant workers to 24,100 between now and April.But the CBI will today say that the interim arrangements, which have been put in place to prevent a spike in applications ahead of the permanent cap, have been “poorly managed”. John Cridland, CBI deputy director general, said: “The system is proving a real headache for firms trying to keep on valued members of staff, or recruit specialists from overseas.“These problems are undermining confidence that the permanent cap will work. The migration system must support, not hamper growth.”The CBI will call on the government to prioritise skilled workers that have been offered a job. It will also say multi-national firms must be able to move their staff around freely using intra-company transfers (ICTs). Cable is leading the fight against the policy in cabinet, and has warned that the cap could “damage” the company, a claim refuted by Downing Street and the Home Office. Yesterday he told City A.M.: “The argument is still being made, and we’re dealing with it constructively with the Home Secretary. Obviously we’ll listen to what the CBI has to say.” Other cabinet ministers, including schools secretary Michael Gove and justice secretary Ken Clarke, are sympathetic to his point of view. An aide to home secretary Theresa May said: “We understand we need to bring the best and brightest here, but we also have a policy to bring down overall net immigration, and that’s what we’ll do.” whatsapp Share Show Comments ▼ CBI criticises migrant cap Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter International Game Technology (IGT) has strengthened its senior leadership team by promoting Bob Vincent, Wendy Montgomery and Scott Gunn to new roles in lottery, marketing and public affairs respectively. The promotions see Vincent becoming chairperson of IGT Global Solutions Corporation; Montgomery named senior vice president of global brand, marketing and communications; and Gunn becoming senior vice president of corporate public affairs. Vincent will take on his new role at IGT’s primary operating subsidiary for the US lottery business on April 8, in which he will act as a senior consultant to IGT chief executive Marco Sala and the rest of the IGT senior leadership team. Vincent began working as a consultant for IGT in 1990 before joining the gaming giant permanently in 1996 and going on to serve in various senior roles, including his current position as executive vice-president for administrative services and external relations. Meanwhile, Montgomery in her new role will oversee the strategy for the IGT global brand, trade shows, and external communications, including community relations, responsible gaming and corporate social responsibility. She takes on the position will immediate effect and will also report directly to Sala. Montgomery joined IGT last year as SVP of global lottery marketing, following a 13-year spell with the Ontario Lottery and Gaming Corporation where she led marketing, sales, operations, policy and planning and the iGaming business. In addition, Gunn will immediately move into his new role, where he will now be responsible for public affairs related to government relations strategy. He will also play a major role in directing and facilitating government relationships and public engagement to advance global business interests for IGT’s North American and international business units. Gunn is one of the longest-serving members of the IGT team, having been with the gaming giant for more than 24 years. In that time, he has held positions in operations, sales, business development and public affairs. “Bob, Wendy, and Scott are all seasoned industry professionals with specialised individual skills who bring great value to IGT,” Sala said, commenting on the new appointments. “IGT is constantly evolving to maintain our position as the industry leader in gaming, and I am confident that these appointments will positively impact our business and serve us well in the coming years.” The trio of appointments comes after IGT in November also appointed Lorenzo Pellicioli as its new chairman on a full-time basis. Pellicioli, also chief executive of IGT’s parent company, Italian conglomerate De Agostini, had been serving as interim chair since August, following the departure of Philip Satre to Wynn Resorts.last_img read more

Pam Werntz (left) and Rabbi Howard Berman (right) light a unity candle during Central Reform Temple’s Shabbat service on Nov. 15 to celebrate their congregations’ covenant relationship. Photo: Emmanuel Church[Diocese of Massachusetts] As the Advent season anticipates Christmas, Emmanuel Church in Boston is preparing to fill its pews with people celebrating the birth of Christ. Central Reform Temple — a Jewish congregation that calls Emmanuel Church home — is preparing to fill those same pews with people celebrating Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights. During these services, members of the Emmanuel Church congregation will serve as ushers for the Central Reform Temple, and members of the temple’s congregation will serve as ushers for Emmanuel.This interfaith family began when the previous rector of Emmanuel Church, the Rev. Bill Blaine-Wallace, met Rabbi Howard Berman while working together as part of the Religious Coalition for the Freedom to Marry in Massachusetts. In 2004, Berman had just co-founded a progressive Jewish congregation and it was in need of worship space, so Blaine-Wallace offered use of Emmanuel Church to the congregation, Boston Jewish Spirit, which would later become Central Reform Temple.Since then, the two congregations have gone beyond sharing facilities to sharing their faith journeys together through collaborative programming, which they facilitate through the Emmanuel Center, the programmatic partnership of Central Reform Temple and Emmanuel Church.Most recently, the two congregations collaborated with the Cathedral Church of St. Paul and Dar-Al Islam — which hosts Jum’ah Muslim Prayer in the cathedral each Friday — on the interfaith art exhibit “Abraham: Out of One, Many” that was on display at the cathedral until recently. Leaders from all four groups met regularly together as part of the interfaith planning team leading up to the exhibition’s opening in October.The relationship between the congregations is expressed in unexpected ways, such as the presence of Emmanuel’s current rector, the Rev. Pam Werntz, at the altar during important Jewish services, as well as Berman’s role as rabbi-in-residence at Emmanuel Church, regularly preaching to the Sunday congregation. The ark containing the Torah scrolls is prominently housed at the front of the church; behind the altar is a carved screen depicting the Last Supper, as well as a large carving of Jesus with his arms open in welcome.“From the beginning, we at the temple have felt that the church’s welcome to us was a very authentic one and an unconditional one, and we in turn were able to feel unconditionally at home within a very Christian worship space,” Berman said in an interview. “We’ve been able to process our own relationship to the spaces and the symbolisms in a very positive way, as have the Emmanuel members in terms of the presence of our Jewish symbols within the sanctuary.”“I think what we’ve been able to do is to understand that the side-by-side visual impact of both symbols is not a syncretistic one, to use a theological term. It’s not a matter of eliminating the differences or blending them into one; they stand fully with their own integrity,” Berman said. “For us, we can understand and emphasize the historic Jewish context of the Christian symbolisms, and for Emmanuel, our symbols are inseparably part of their spiritual heritage anyway, so it’s seeing the fullness of the background and roots of their own Christian faith.”Over the years, leaders from the congregations discussed the idea of a covenant statement that would document and preserve the unique relationship between the two congregations now and for the future.A document had yet to be drafted when Werntz was traveling on her sabbatical in 2018 and landed in Vienna, Austria, to news of the shooting at the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh. During her sabbatical, Werntz had visited archaeological digs and museums and viewed evidence that testified to good relationships between Jews, Christians and Muslims on the Iberian Peninsula, and she found that the news of the Pittsburgh tragedy — coupled with her recent travels — stirred her to begin drafting a covenant.“There was something about the trip and seeing the archaeological evidence of good relationships, while also knowing the history of the terrible things that, for the most part, Christians have done,” Werntz said. “I felt that there was an urgency to add to that body of evidence and to tell our story about the last 15 years.”Upon her return, Werntz began drafting a document, and — after input from the leadership of both congregations — a covenant statement was finalized and signed this past July as a declaration of the two congregations’ commitment to a shared life together.“As partners in a covenant relationship, each of our congregations is faithfully rooted in its distinct religious traditions and deeply committed to our shared spiritual roots,” the covenant reads. “We practice modeling compassionate encounters between Judaism and Christianity that affirm the difficult challenges of history and aspire to new levels of understanding.”Berman emphasized that much of the Emmanuel-Central Reform Temple relationship is filtered through the lens of the current climates of the country and the world, with regard to the polarization and conflict between different communities.“[The covenant] puts into sharp focus the alternative vision that what we’re doing offers, and I think to emphasize commonalities, to build on those, is a very important mandate for this period of time,” Berman said. “The main points of the covenant itself really raise up the issues of both being firmly grounded in our own respective traditions in a confident and secure way that enables us to be open to emphasizing the similarities and shared values and ideals; but also, being able to articulate and embrace the points of divergence and difference and be able to constructively, lovingly and respectfully discuss them.”During the ceremony of affirmation at Emmanuel’s Sunday morning Eucharist on Nov. 17, the Jewish Ark containing the Torah scrolls was left open. Photo: Emmanuel ChurchOver the weekend of Nov. 15-17, the two congregations held ceremonies of affirmation during the Friday evening Shabbat service and the Sunday morning Eucharist, to raise up and celebrate the covenant agreement. As part of the ceremony, leaders from both congregations read the covenant statement aloud and lit a unity candle together: Berman held a flame from one of the temple’s Shabbat candles and Werntz held a flame from Emmanuel’s Paschal candle, and they used their individual candles to light a single pillar candle, together.“As these candles have combined to create greater light from two different sources, may our coming together in this sacred place, give light to all who come into this house in search of faith and love, justice and peace,” the congregations prayed during the ceremony. “May our life together here inspire us, and all who behold us, to work to kindle the light of compassion and hope in the midst of the darkness of our world.”Both Berman and Werntz hope that their congregations’ covenant agreement can be used as a guideline for others who may want to enter into similar interfaith relationships.“It’s just a really beautiful, gracious, grace-filled relationship and we want our light to shine beyond 15 Newbury Street,” Werntz said. “It’s the most rewarding thing that we in the congregation have done in the last 15 years, but to work across cultural and religious differences is very hard. It takes time and patience and understanding and goodwill — and it’s absolutely worth every minute of that work.” Assistant/Associate Rector Morristown, NJ Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Rector Collierville, TN Submit an Event Listing TryTank Experimental Lab and York St. John University of England Launch Survey to Study the Impact of Covid-19 on the Episcopal Church TryTank Experimental Lab Featured Events Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Rector Tampa, FL Rector Hopkinsville, KY New Berrigan Book With Episcopal Roots Cascade Books Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Featured Jobs & Calls An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR Cathedral Dean Boise, ID Rector Bath, NC Press Release Service Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY Rector Albany, NY Assistant/Associate Rector Washington, DC Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Rector Knoxville, TN Curate Diocese of Nebraska Ecumenical & Interreligious Rector Shreveport, LA Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC Youth Minister Lorton, VA Seminary of the Southwest announces appointment of two new full time faculty members Seminary of the Southwest Associate Rector Columbus, GA Curate (Associate & Priest-in-Charge) Traverse City, MI Submit a Press Release This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 Rector Belleville, IL In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 Remember Holy Land Christians on Jerusalem Sunday, June 20 American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem Inaugural Diocesan Feast Day Celebrating Juneteenth San Francisco, CA (and livestream) June 19 @ 2 p.m. PT Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS Episcopal Charities of the Diocese of New York Hires Reverend Kevin W.

Crackdown on media reinforced under guise of combating terrorism

first_img February 26, 2021 Find out more to go further Yemeni journalist killed, nine wounded in Aden airport explosions News This has been a grim year for Yemen’s independent press, the victim of an media war waged by the government under the guise of combating terrorism and sedition, and the situation could get even worse in 2010, Reporters Without Borders said today, following the arrests of two more journalists in the past four days.“Physical attacks, interrogation, criminal charges, arbitrary arrests, prosecutions with no evidence, solitary confinement, ‘preventive measures’ and disappearances – such is the treatment reserved by the government for journalists who refuse to reflect its views on sensitive issues,” the press freedom organisation said.“As the world turns its eyes towards Yemen, now the refuge of Jihadist militants, the international community must remind its government that, while it is legitimate to combat terrorism, there is no justification for cracking down on the press,” Reporters Without Borders added. The first of the past week’s media arrests was that of Khalid Jahafi, a journalist who works for the opposition news website Alsahwa.net. He was arrested by security forces on 27 December while photographing clashes between police and supporters of southern Yemen’s independence and was beaten on the orders of national security chief Alaa Mohammed Al-Azraqi. There has been no news of him since then.Aged 38 and based in the city of Al-Dhalli’ (200 km south of Sanaa), Jahafi also works for the pan-Arab TV station Al Jazeera at the same as being an education department lecturer. The security forces tried to seize the education department building two months ago in an unsuccessful attempt to arrest him.The other media arrest was that of Shafi’ Al-Abd, a journalist with the newspaper Al-Nada, who was arrested along with four members of the leadership of the Federation of Southern Youth in Aden on 28 December by National Security officials. After being searched, they were taken to Khor Maksar prison in Aden province.

Thereafter, the Court had directed the President of the Tehsil Bar Association Purwa, District Unnao, to be present before the Court on 02nd December 2020 to assist the Court as to find out a solution for avoiding such resolution for smooth functioning of the judicial proceedings. The Court had also called upon two Advocates, who are Members of the U.P. Bar Council to appear, assist & resolve the aforesaid issue. On 02nd December 2020, before the Court, Advocate Akhilesh Awasthi (Member of the Oudh Bar Association as well as a Member of the U.P. Bar Council) had offered to render help and use his good officers to visit the local Bar Association to resolve the issue of frequent abstinence of work. In view of the aforesaid, the Court had put up this matter for further hearing on Wednesday (13th January 2021). Today, taking note of the aforesaid statement made at the Bar and in view of the aforesaid, the Court observed that no further orders were required to be passed. Accordingly, the petition stood consigned. The Court appreciated Advocates Akhilesh Awasthi and Prashant Singh Atal “for their efforts and time spent and energy to mobilize their good offices in order to arrive at the consensus for resolving the deadlock.” Case title – Anita Pandey v.
