So far, the diocese has received 72 Christian, Hindu, Sikh and a few Shia Muslim families into its Bannu camp, with more expected.The permanent camp is set up at a local high school where the diocese looks after the families’ physical and spiritual needs. Diocesan clergy are on site to provide spiritual counseling.Diocese of Peshawar has three churches in Bannu, a school and a hospital that are all being used to meet the IDP’s needs. On top of caring for the minority displaced families, the diocese also sends resource teams to help care for many Muslims who are also displaced.The operation in North Waziristan, launched by the Pakistani Army, has caused nearly half a million people, many Christians among them, to seek refuge elsewhere.Last year, All Saints Church in Peshawar was the site of a suicide bombing that killed at least 78 people in the church and left scores injured. The diocese has since partnered with the Church of Scotland to support families affected by the bombing.One of the eight dioceses making up the Church in Pakistan, the Diocese of Peshawar was one of the first to respond to an Afghan refugee influx, providing medical teams and relief operations. The Diocese of Peshawar serves roughly 100,000 Christians in the region, with 50 percent coming from the Church of Pakistan.On June 8, a special interdenominational worship celebration was held at the United Church, University Campus Peshawar to celebrate Pentecost Day. The Rt. Rev. Humphrey S. Peters attended the celebration where more than 500 people gathered to hear his message of unity.The diocese also recently hosted a camp where 60 children and 35 teachers gathered from all over Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Province for teaching and storytelling about spiritual growth in Jesus Christ.

Fiji power to Hong Kong Sevens title while Russia qualify as core team

first_imgSunday Mar 29, 2015 Fiji power to Hong Kong Sevens title while Russia qualify as core team Fiji cruised to Hong Kong Sevens victory as they beat defending champions New Zealand 33-19 in the Cup Final. They beat overall series leaders South Africa in the Semi Final. Also, Russia have now qualified as a core team for the 2015/2016 season. Savenaca Rawaca ended the tournament as joint leading try scorer, alongside the USA’s Zack Test, as his brace of tries in the final added to the six he scored over the course of the weekend.It was former England coach Ben Ryan’s first taste of victory at the iconic Hong Kong tournament, which was celebrating it’s 40th anniversary.“This victory is certainly up there,” said Fiji’s coach Ben Ryan “We are now pushing hard for top place, we’re moving away from that Olympic qualification and it’s great for the people back home as Hong Kong means so much to them. It’s perhaps a monkey off my back as well so I am delighted.”Following victory, Fiji are now just two points behind leaders South Africa (110) in the overall series standings, with 108 points, and just one ahead of New Zealand (107), with Australia (84) and England (78) the others in the top five, as the race for Olympic qualification continues. Russia qualify for 2015-16 World Series – Highlights While the top teams played out main event in Hong Kong, 12 regional qualifiers battled it out for one ever-present core team place on next season’s 2015/16 series, with Russia emerging victorious after beating Zimbabwe in the final thanks to a last-minute winning try from Vladimir Ostrouskho. “This means a lot, it allows our players to play more valuable games and gain experience and the win will be a motivation for the younger players too,” said captain Dmitriy Perov.View highlights from Day 3 below, with the other two days play shown on the next page, including an upset victory by Portugal over New Zealand on day two!

City to approve Westcliff rezoning, tackle loopholes that allow “stealth dorms”

first_imgFacebook + posts Westcliff bike giveaway rewards perfect attendance at school Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Twitter Linkedin Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ ReddIt printRezoning for streets in the Westcliff neighborhood like Rashti Court could prevent future duplexdevelopments.(Photo by Kayley Ryan)The TCU overlay, which restricts the number of unrelated people who can live in single-family homes near the university, isn’t enough for many people in the Westcliff and Westcliff West neighborhoods.Residents there said they are still plagued with parties, noise and congested parking, as duplexes and multiplexes have become the latest “stealth dorms.”The greatest concern for residents is not traditional duplexes, but duplexes targeted at college students, said councilwoman Ann Zadeh, who served on the city’s zoning commission for six years.“When you get into these five-bedroom, five-bath, I think you’re moving toward more of a dorm-like product that has a greater impact on the surrounding neighborhood,” she said.Councilman Brian Byrd is pushing a plan to slow the development of these duplexes and multiplexes that’s expected to go before the zoning commission March 14 and city council  April 3.The proposal would ensure that most single-family homes in the Westcliff area are on lots with corresponding zoning.Developers have been using zoning dating back to 1940 to tear down single-family homes and erect duplexes, said Beth Knight, senior planner for Fort Worth’s city planning and development.“When [city zoning] was put in place in 1940, there was already this standard setup of the main house and then a standard house in the back for the help,” Knight told residents at a Westcliff meeting Nov. 22. “[The city] set up duplex zoning or B-zoning to accommodate that in large swaths, entire neighborhoods.”The rezoning will only affect further development, not uproot current duplexes or multiplexes, Knight said.“We have the full expectation that your neighborhood, absent stealth dorms and all that other stuff, would have remained single-family zoned uses,” Knight told residents at the meeting.Parties, noise and parkingThe duplexes and multiplexes act like “stealth dorms,” attracting more college students and college parties that can disrupt neighbors past 10 p.m., said Loren Baxter, president of the Westcliff West Neighborhood Association.Fort Worth requires neighbors to keep their noise level at 60 decibels, or the volume of a normal conversation, between 10 p.m. and 7 a.m.Sandra Soria, who’s lived in Westcliff West almost 20 years, said she’s called the police to handle noise violations at a nearby duplex that has housed students from the same fraternity for years.Soria said cars lining the streets during parties obstruct her view.“I can’t see when I pull out of my driveway because it’s wall-to-wall cars,” she said.Westcliff resident Kenneth Hawley said he’s picked up beer cans from his front yard after college parties. He lives near college students who host parties in their single-family houses.“I’m a pretty tolerant guy,” Hawley said. “But the next day when I’m picking up beer cans in my yard and bottles and McDonald’s and all that other trash, I draw the line.”TCU housing director Craig Allen said he has heard complaints ranging from students vomiting in bushes to urinating on lawns.“I can remember one where a neighbor had an elderly parent, and they couldn’t even get their parent to the sidewalk because the students had parked right in front of the sidewalk of the other house,” he said.Single-family feelThe corner lot on Carolyn Road and South Hills Drive is currently C-zoned, meaning it can be developed into a duplex or a multiplex. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)Residents don’t want the neighborhood to lose its single-family atmosphere.Developers have bought more than 30 B-zoned lots in the neighborhood, Byrd said.“I’m sympathetic with the homeowners who have been there for decades and don’t want to see their neighborhood disaffected,” he said.Soria said she and her partner like to sit on their back porch in the evening.“Our back porch faces the roof of these people, so when they’re on the roof, it’s like we don’t have any privacy in our yard,” she said.Westcliff resident Joy Brooks, a mother of two, lives across the street from a duplex and hasn’t had any problems with it.But she does want to maintain the family-friendly character of the neighborhood so her kids will continue to have a “safe and respectful” environment.“There’s a difference between a family raising a child and a college student going to TCU,” she said. “I’m all for growth, but still there’s no reason to destroy a bunch of old neighborhoods.”TCU Overlay only solves one problemThe city adopted the TCU Overlay in 2014 to maintain the neighborhoods’ single-family character.It only allows three unrelated occupants in a single-family home, down from five.But five unrelated occupants can live in a duplex or multiplex.Zoning BreakdownVenngage InfographicsThe Westcliff neighborhood has 94 lots zoned for duplexes and 32 zoned for multiplexes, according to documents Knight shared at the November meeting.But most of those lots have single-family homes on them, Knight said.Byrd said he heard no opposition to the proposed zoning change.Below is a side-by-side comparison of current zoning and proposed zoning in the Westcliff area, the latest plans Fort Worth Planning and Development shared with the city council on Jan. 30.<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>TCU Housing: a space issueAllen said TCU can only build so many dormitories for so many students.“I think if you look at the history of TCU maybe over the last 10 or 15 years, you would see that we’ve acquired a significant amount of property, especially on the east side of our campus,” he said.The “Campus Commons” is the largest portion ofgreen space among dormitories at TCU. (Photo by Kayley Ryan)Some property TCU owns won’t be converted to housing because it’s being used as parking spaces or green space in the “Campus Commons.”“We’re clearly not going to build in the middle of the Commons,” he said. “We’re not going to build on the baseball field.”The university is building new housing for 300 students that won’t open until fall of 2019, but that takes time, Allen said.“What happens is these little property developers that are buying up lots here and there, they can move much faster,” he said. “They can buy a lot tomorrow and have something up in four months. We can’t build that fast.”In 2006, TCU had about 7,600 undergraduate students with about 3,000 living off campus, he said.Now, TCU has 8,900 undergraduate students with about 4,700 living off campus.Brownies and silenceResidents at the November Westcliff neighborhood meeting said they are encouraged by TCU’s Neighbor to Neighbor program, a partnership with the city to educate students on their responsibilities as neighbors.Allen said TCU works with neighborhood associations if there are students who are not being “good neighbors.”“[Residents] know they have a direct line to the campus office,” he said.But residents like Hawley recognize that TCU can’t address every issue or complaint.“At the end of the day, this is ultimately an off-campus issue,” Hawley said.Sandra Soria (Courtesy of Sandra Soria)Soria said she’s seen a change in the fraternity brothers living near her.She introduced herself one morning with a plate of brownies in hand: “I’m your neighbor, and I wanted to bring you these brownies. And I wanted to let you know that we don’t mind parties in our neighborhood, but we’d really like it if after 11 o’clock you’d take it inside.”The fraternity held a party the next weekend.“Sure enough, at 11 o’clock: dead silence,” she said. “They apparently had paid attention, and we appreciated that.” Grains to grocery: One bread maker brings together farmers and artisans at locally-sourced store Previous articleSurvivors of Florida school shooting organize student march on WashingtonNext articleFrogs First applications to close next week Kayley Ryan RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Fort Worth recognized for growing music scene ReddIt Linkedin Twitter Facebook $800 million bond looks to expand JPS medical and behavioral health facilities Kayley Ryanhttps://www.tcu360.com/author/kayley-ryan/ Kayley Ryan Fort Worth set to elect first new mayor in 10 years Saturday Abortion access threatened as restrictive bills make their way through Texas Legislature 10th-annual Frogstock features student-led musiclast_img read more

O’Dea deems Irish Water a “monumental waste”

According to Deputy O’Dea, these measures are reported to include effectively moth-balling the €500 million metering programme, abandoning plans for additional investment in the water infrastructure and a huge new bureaucratic role for the Department of Social Protection administering a bizarre €180 million ‘cash rebate’ scheme.Responded to the emerging details of the Government’s water survival strategy, Deputy O’Dea TD commented, “The scale of the mess created by the Government with Irish Water is genuinely staggering. Having squandered every drop of public trust on the issue, the Coalition is now in full scale panic mode trying to cobble together a package which mitigates the short term cost of their mess. However, if the briefings to media in advance of today’s announcement are accurate, Fine Gael and Labour look set to dig themselves into an ever deeper hole, undermining the entire case they have been making since taking up office.”“The Government’s new proposals involve moth-balling the €500 million metering programme that they signed up for without any cost benefit analysis. To put that into context, the first five years of revenue gathered by the ever more complicated new charge will be sunk into water meters that will probably never be read,” he added.“An additional €200 million has been blown on a bloated quango that will simply be administering a flat charge and will not have a cent extra to invest in the infrastructure the Government told us it was created to save. This entire escapade has been a monumental waste of money, energy, opportunity and political goodwill.”Deputy O’Dea concluded, “When you piece together the cost of metering, the establishment costs of the quango, the millions spent on consultants and now the additional costs of the rebate scheme, you are looking at a €1 billion bill for the new Irish Water regime. The return on that billion is a total collapse in public faith. The new structures will deliver none of the investment we were told was in urgent demand. The Government has succeeded only in establishing an organisation that the public has simply no faith in.” Facebook Print Advertisement Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Twitter RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHORlast_img read more

Case round-up

first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Case round-upOn 24 Jun 2003 in Personnel Today Case round-up by Eversheds 020 7919 4500That’s settled then… or is it? Whiley v Christopher Clarke Workshops Limited, EAT, [11 March 2003] Informal agreements can often be difficult to prove and, therefore, equallydifficult to enforce. Mr Whiley sustained a back injury and was eventually signed off work by hisGP. After he had been absent for approximately two months, his manager spoke tohis GP. The manager updated the company’s managing director of thatconversation. However, instead of referring to a likely three-month absence,the manager misleadingly informed him that Whiley would be off work for monthsand might not work again. As a result, Whiley was dismissed with immediateeffect. He brought complaints of unfair dismissal and disabilitydiscrimination. The tribunal found that the company’s failure to follow any proper procedurewas unfair. However, the claim for disability discrimination was dismissed onthe basis the company could not have known that Whiley was”disabled”. Having delivered its decision, the tribunal invited theparties to discuss a settlement, and the sum of £2,000 was agreed by handshake.Nevertheless, Whiley still sought to appeal the tribunal’s finding thatthere had been no discrimination. Despite the company’s protestations that the appeal should not be heard asthe case had been compromised by the settlement, the EAT upheld the appeal. Itfound that the terms of the settlement had not been recorded or signed by therepresentatives. It also concluded that the agreed sum only related to thetribunal’s finding that Whiley had been unfairly dismissed and was not “infull and final settlement”. As such, he was not barred from pursuing hisappeal and, having done so successfully, was entitled to further compensation. No time for part-time? Sibley v The Girls’ Day School Trust, Norwich High School for Girls,EAT, [20 May 2003] In recent months, even prior to the new flexible working rights, there havebeen many successful cases against employers who have refused part-time work.As this case demonstrates, however, while employers must give all such requestsserious consideration, not every job is suited to that arrangement. Ms Sibley was a teacher. Following a period of maternity leave, she asked toreturn to work part-time. While the school agreed to grant her request if apart-time post came up, it did not accept that she could undertake her currentpost on a part-time basis as it included form tutor duties. Sibley resigned, claiming constructive unfair dismissal and sexdiscrimination. She alleged that the school’s requirement meant that, as awoman, she was less able to meet the full-time condition it was imposing than amale teacher would be. As such, she believed its conduct was indirectlydiscriminatory. However, the tribunal rejected both claims. In particular, it found that theschool’s belief that form tutor duties should be carried out full-time wasreasonably held, and was objectively justified as a policy. Sibley appealed unsuccessfully. The EAT accepted the tribunal’s decisionthat the school’s approach was both professional and reasonable, and that thecondition it was applying in this case was objectively justified.
