first_imgProtecting the environment and helping the poor brings faith leaders together while facing the coronavirusFrom Public News ServiceDespite all the losses, challenges and restrictions brought on by the coronavirus, some faith leaders are leaning in to help find solutions to common problems. In honor of Pope Francis’ historic papal document about the environment, Catholic and evangelical clergy have gathered online to discuss ways to overcome climate change and disease outbreaks. Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate Please enter your comment! Pope Francis’s environmental encyclical, Laudato Si, was published in June 2015.

In Florida, Dr. Joel Hunter is a retired senior pastor of megachurch “Northland, A Church Distributed” in Longwood. He participated in the forum organized by the Catholic Diocese of St. Petersburg, and says he came away with some positive ideas.“This is challenging churches to become healthier, more hopeful, and to reengage the command of Jesus when he said, ‘Go ye into all the world,’” says Hunter. “So, they’re kind of exciting.”The pope’s encyclical called for dialogue among religions on protecting the environment and helping the poor. The virtual meeting, which also included an infectious disease specialist, focused on ways the Christian community can work together to reach those goals.Hunter is also the chairman of the Community Resource Network, an agency that helps homeless families, and says he’s thankful for those who’ve stepped up to help the vulnerable homeless population throughout the pandemic.“To provide for people who are coming in, there’s lots of churches doing community work now and they’ve kind-of redoubled their efforts of service,” says Hunter. “So, overall it really touches your heart, you know, at a time of national crisis how people come together.”Hunter adds many people are coming together online. He says he’s hearing from pastors trying to figure out how to sustain an uptick of potential new parishioners who are logging into church services being held online. He thinks by forcing people to think outside the box, the current crisis could lead to a lot of good in the future.

The existing floor which was porcelain tiles, was covered with carefully selected wide boards of aged natural oak parquet and pasted onto the pavement. The kitchen isle was covered by natural oak butcher, 2 inch thick, with an oil finish to it. Save this picture!© Aviad Bar-NessElectric and lighting- the house was equipped with a new electrical system with an emphasis on the functional and decorative lighting. Lamps purchased at the “Beauty Mark” flea market were hung over the work isle in the kitchen, they were attached to a single bus bar in order to avoid an excessive damage to the concrete ceiling, unnecessary ceiling lowering and to use the full non-standard ceiling height (330 cm). Similarly, on the bus bars, functional spotlights were placed, which highlight the walking routes and at night, form a light cage towards those sitting in the outdoor area – the patio. Over the dining room, a light source designed by the German lighting designer was hung, it allows an ease feeling in the space and it is affected by the air moving in the space, both by outside air and by the black fan in the living room (Wortiche – an Italian brand purchased at “Ayelet Lighting”). Save this picture!© Aviad Bar-NessOrdered Furnishing – the dining room furniture consists of a round table made of white Formica, produced for office furniture, bought at “Waxman”, around it are white “Eames” chairs purchased at the “Items” gallery in the flea market. At the family room, it was decided to make use of industrial shelves of “Boochvalter” working in conjunction with “Hapach” which is owned by the landlord, these form a contrast to the warm parquet on which they are placed and are easy for kids’ access. The kitchen work isle was equipped with black bar chairs from “Pick-Up Bar Chairs”, which give a didining solution around the isle.Save this picture!© Aviad Bar-Ness”Ready-made” – it was decided that the “sawhorse table”, which was purchased years ago by the owners,  would be placed in-front of the entrance door, which at first glance is exposed a decorative element that separates the inside and the outside. The outside table, made of oak rail ledges, is placed parallel to the sawhorse table. An old chest that was inherited from the grandmother was placed at the parent’s bedroom, it was rebuilt and painted white in an oven by the artist and painter Osnat (054-4850258) and is used as the TV and storage chest. As well, an old library from the 50’s, also inherited from the grandmother, was placed at the baby’s room.Save this picture!© Aviad Bar-NessTextile and Art – a landscape picture (photographer: Sharon Eliasi) was hung perpendicular to the kitchen isle, which gives depth to the space and is an imaginary window to the outdoors and is perpendicular to an existing window which is facing the garden. The selected carpet for the living room is a Turkish patches one from Carmel Carpets, which defines the living space and provides color and texture into the white surrounding space.

first_imgNews June 7, 2021 Find out more RSF_en News to go further Reporters Without Borders (RSF) calls on the Montenegrin authorities to quickly reexamine the reasons and circumstances of freelance journalist Jovo Martinovic’s prolonged detention in connection with a drug trafficking investigation without being formally charged. He completed his first six months in detention today. MontenegroEurope – Central Asia Imprisoned Follow the news on Montenegro Related documents attestation_jovo_martinovic_1.pdfPDF – 42.38 KB Receive email alerts MontenegroEurope – Central Asia Imprisoned A specialist in covering organized crime in the western Balkans, Martinovic works for many international media outlets including The Economist, The Financial Times, and the CAPA news agency. Because of his contacts with mafia members, he was arrested on 22 October during a series of raids by the Montenegrin authorities on criminal organizations, in the course of which a total of 17 arrests were made. “Martinovic’s preventive detention for the past six months is incomprehensible and disproportionate,” RSF editor-in-chief Aude Rossigneux said. “The courts must take account of his status as a journalist. The criminalization of reporters who specialize in sensitive subjects poses a real threat to the journalistic profession.” The Montenegrin government is required to respond to the alert about the Martinovic case that RSF registered on the Council of Europe’s platform for the protection of journalism on 13 April. RSF called for his release pending trial. Martinovic, who insists on his innocence, filed an appeal on 12 April against the prolongation of his provisional detention. A formal charge is supposed to be confirmed on 28 April. RSF is also posting a letter by the CAPA news agency expressing deep concern about the detention of its stringer.
