Purim: The conviction to correct chaos

first_imgEditor’s Note: Purim is a Jewish holiday that remembers the deliverance of the Jewish people from a plot to destroy all of them as recorded in the Book of Esther. It begins at sundown tonight (Wednesday, March 20th) and ends on sundown Thursday, March 21st.Jewish Tradition sees the Hebrew Bible neither as history nor as a book of science. The essence of the text, according to the Rabbinic Sages in the first centuries, is to convey lessons for life that yield vision and meaning in every generation, across the boundaries of time and geography, not only for the Jewish People but for all the inhabitants and all the nations of the world.The Hebrew Bible, for example, opens with the statement that the world was in a state of darkness and chaos when God uttered the words, “Let there be light.” The Sages of Jewish Tradition ask, “What is the source of that light? After all, the sun, the moon, and the stars were not created until the fourth day!” Their answer: it was primordial light, emanating from the cloak of God, creating a bridge from chaos to the completion of creation. Our quest, therefore, is to do everything in our power to transform darkness to light, from chaos to completion, a world in pieces to a world in peace.In the midst of meaningful messages comes the Book of Esther, the only book in the Hebrew Bible in which God’s Name does not appear! Based on pagan pageantry, it reads like an improbable soap opera, presented as a comedic message of seriousness.The story begins with a narcissistic King who throws parties to honor himself, a foolish, amoral, and manipulative leader of Persia. When his whim is not fulfilled, he consults his advisors who are afraid they will lose stature; in order to maintain their status, they advise King Ahashverosh to declare an unreasonable law, that husbands are to rule over women. He conducts a search for a new queen, selected on the basis of a beauty competition. Esther wins the competition and becomes queen. Her older cousin Mordecai warns her not to let the King know she is Jewish.The political structure is a comedy, except it turns deadly.Haman, a descendant of Israel’s deadliest enemy, is the King’s “right-hand-man” who receives the promise of loyalty from everyone except Mordecai, the Jew. Mordecai’s refusal to bow before Haman becomes Haman’s obsession. All else falls to the side as Haman vows retribution by doing away with his opposition, by signing a death decree against Mordecai’s people, the Jews. He casts lots – Purim – to determine which day the Jews will die.Mordecai persuades Esther to approach King Ahashverosh, to reveal to him that she is Jewish, and to expose the plot of the evil Haman. In a planned private party – remembering that the King and Haman love to party – she reveals that Haman desires to murder her people. The King angrily storms out of the room, and Haman throws himself on his knees before the reclining Esther begging for his life. The King enters the room, sees Haman, and concludes that he is “making a move on the Queen.” It is at this point, the King commands, “Hang him.”Unfortunately, the King has already decreed that Persians are permitted to murder Jews on the 14th day of the Hebrew month Adar, and a decree may not be annulled. Instead, the King issues a counter-decree: the Jews are permitted to fight back.It is the most non-biblical biblical book, yet the Rabbinic Sages declared, “When the Messiah comes, the only parts of the Hebrew Bible that need to be studied are the Five Books of Moses and the Book of Esther. Why Esther? Because it is an important message for all humanity: no matter how chaotic our world might be, no matter what buffoonery may come from a ruling government, we can set the world in order by standing up, as did Mordecai, and by speaking up, as did Esther, as unpopular as it might be.The Jewish holiday of Purim, on the 14th day of the Hebrew month Adar – the same day Haman had randomly selected for Jewish annihilation – is marked by publicly chanting the Book of Esther to an upbeat pattern of notes, during which the congregation boos loudly at the mention of the evil Haman, shaking noisemakers to drown out his name. The normal code of dress for a worship service gives way to costumes: kings and queens, heroes and villains, funny hats, sports jerseys, colored wigs, and… There is a raucous, drunk-like joy permeating the walls of the room in which the story of Esther is shared.Purim is the holiday of perspective, cautioning all of us and each of us not to give up, even in the face of ruling-class oppression and amoral societies. A key part of Jewish strategy is to laugh at dangerous buffoonery that would otherwise make us cry. We respond to amoral behavior and disorder by making moral decisions that may not make a difference today, but certainly will positively affect tomorrow, or the day after, or the day after.In the face of Haman’s serious threat, and in the serious threat coming from all despotic powers and self-serving factions of society, Purim reminds us that we can bring order even in a world of chaos.

Point King Residence is located at Portsea on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia. The site is characterised by its cliff top location and orientation towards the north. The entire house sits almost two metres below ground level, limiting the visual bulk of the building when viewed from other parts of Point King and the Mornington Peninsula. It is a strategy that deals with the scale of the building and links it to the site.Save this picture!© Earl CarterRecommended ProductsWindowsVitrocsaMinimalist Window – SlidingEnclosures / Double Skin FacadesAlucoilStructural Honeycomb Panels – LarcoreDoorsSky-FrameInsulated Sliding Doors – Sky-Frame ArcWindowsAir-LuxSliding Window – CurvedThe house has been designed as a slatted timber box overlaying a limestone base. Nestled into the rear of a sloping block, the ground floor anchors the house, allowing the second floor to ‘float’, suggesting lightness. Save this picture!© Earl CarterThe ironbark timber facade will fade to a grey colour, mimicking the Moonah trees indigenous to the area. The limestone base references a nearby heritage-listed limestone kiln. Save this picture!© Earl CarterIt is designed to bring family and friends together in a beach setting, while allowing the owners to rest and relax in privacy. The planning approach divided the house into three zones – shared, private and living.  Save this picture!© Earl CarterThe three zones are circled around a central entrance space that mimics the kind of courtyard sometimes seen in a European village. This provided the core planning approach adopted by the HASSELL design team. Save this picture!© Earl CarterGenerously scaled rooms foster light and natural ventilation flows with ease. The interiors reflect the architecture of the house, using limestone excavated from the site and recycled timber battens. The palette is sympathetic to the local climate and the client’s desire to ground the house, both physically and figuratively. Decorative elements provide a level of intimacy appropriate to the domestic setting.

Located in Toronto’s Roncesvalles neighbourhood, the Galley house challenges conventional notions typical of a semi-detached, Victorian era home, by providing a new rear entry hub, internal connectivity, and abundant natural light within a two-storey volume addition. The client’s desire was to convert their home into a more livable and beautiful space that would suit their family’s lifestyle. Reigo & Bauer approached the brief by reconsidering two primary elements: the pattern of circulation into the house and access to natural light.”Save this picture!© Tom Arban PhotographyA key feature in the project speaks to Reigo & Bauer’s ongoing studies of daylighting all parts of a home. Above the dining room, the subtle tilt of the east facing upper wall, and a cut-away in the second floor, permits the large window above to act as a skylight, flooding the centrally located dining area below with natural light, whilst connecting the upper and lower levels – an unexpected condition in Toronto’s Victorian-era homes. Courtesy of slight offsets and subtle sculptural design elements, the natural light reflects off smooth, curved matte white walls throughout, while the upper floor benefits from the newly expanded views afforded by the tilt of the wall & window.Save this picture!© Tom Arban PhotographyOnly freestanding volumes of wall divide spaces on the main level, providing a sense of inter-connectivity throughout the project. Unconventionally, the back of the main level has been given over to a dropped oversized landing, connecting main level, grade and basement. Serving as the primary entry hub to the home, an open concept mudroom is tucked in beside the stairwell, where Reigo & Bauer used diamond mesh railings to discretely obscure the coat storage from the main floor space, without obstructing outside views. The extra three feet of height gained from the dropped level has provided the main floor with expanded views to the backyard through floor to ceiling glass.Save this picture!© Tom Arban PhotographyIn addition to addressing core elements of the home’s internal redesign, the partners’ use of innovative materials and architectural design elements ensure the addition’s external façade both contrasts and compliments its neighbouring environment. For the exterior cladding, Reigo & Bauer sought a contemporary complement to the traditional brick façades of the existing home and its surroundings, opting for a unit-based cladding that would serve the same principal, but in the form of black and white diamond-shaped metal tiles.Save this picture!© Tom Arban PhotographyThe two-tone cladding effectively distinguishes the volumes as stacked layers, rather than giving the impression of a single overarching façade. The upper and lower volumes are distinguished not only by the contrasting colours, but very subtly by their geometry. A slight 10º degree slope of the upper side window wall is echoed below in a surprising variance from square in the side and rear walls; the offset reinforcing the reading of two stacked volumes. On the roof of the extension, a sundeck completes the addition, with light industrial fencing that embraces the quality of transparency found throughout the project.Save this picture!© Tom Arban PhotographyProject gallerySee allShow lessTulum Plastic School: Call for entriesBuilt Projects & MasterplansBuilding LL 2474 / ArqtipoSelected Projects Sharelast_img read more

Cancer Research UK cuts research budget by half

first_img Tagged with: Cancer Research UK coronavirus COVID-19 Funding AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Cancer Research UK cuts research budget by half Cancer Research UK is slashing £45 million from its research budget, it announced today.The charity has experienced a drop in income during the coronavirus pandemic, partially due to the closure of its charity shops and cancellation of many fundraising events. As a result, the organisation is spending half of what it had planned to at this time.Cancer Research UK has warned that this will slow down future breakthroughs for people with cancer. It also threatens the charity’s chances of reaching the milestone of 3 in 4 people surviving their cancer by 2034.During his 2020 Spending Review at the end of November, Chancellor Rishi Sunak committed to investing £14.6 billion in research next year. However it is unclear how much of this will be earmarked for medical research.Dr Iain Foulkes, executive director of research and innovation at Cancer Research UK, said: “The recent Government spending review was a step in the right direction for cancer services in the UK, but we need urgent clarification to what measures are being put in place to support medical research charities through the Life Sciences Charity Partnership Fund. As a country that relies so heavily on charity-funded research, the UK risks weakening its reputation as a world-leader in science if charities don’t receive the right support.”This follows the £44 million cut made to grants by Cancer Research UK at the start of the pandemic. The charity expects to make similar reductions next spring unless its income gaps are plugged by government support or more charitable giving. If nothing changes, Cancer Research UK have said they could be spending £150 million less per year by 2024.Michelle Mitchell, chief executive of Cancer Research UK, said: “Covid-19 has slowed down our efforts to beat cancer. The closures of our charity shops and the cancellation of our fundraising events across the country means we have less money available for life-saving research, but we will never stop.”MORE:Cancer Research UK turns Race for Life mass group events virtual with live streaming (3rd November 2020)Cancer Research UK anticipates £300m drop in income over three years (16th July 2020)UK scientists urge PM to prevent “catastrophic” fall in charity research funding (8th July 2020) Howard Lake | 8 December 2020 | News  230 total views,  1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

Big turnout against hate in Berkeley

first_imgMore than 200 people turned out for a public forum dubbed United Against Hate in Berkeley, Calif., on July 7. The forum was organized in response to numerous attacks, centered in Berkeley but spread throughout the Bay Area, by right-wing extremists and Zionists. Many of the attacks have targeted Muslims and Palestinians in particular.Forum speakers included Tur-Ha Ak, Anti Police-Terror Project; Lara Kiswani, Arab Resource and Organizing Center; Judith Mirkinson, National Lawyers Guild San Francisco Bay Area chapter vice president; and Daniella, AF3IRM and Northern California Anti-Racist Action. Moderator Sara Kershnar explained how Identity Evropa and the Traditionalist Workers Party, among others, have been targeting the Bay Area and are explicitly white supremacist.Ak talked about how Berkeley Mayor Jesse Arreguin has received thousands of death threats, to the point where he had to hire a security detail, but has yet to even put out a press release about it. Ak charged that the Berkeley Police Department is complicit with the alt-right. People were urged to attend Arreguin’s state of the city address on July 9 to hold him accountable for letting the alt-right in and for renewing the contract for Urban Shield, a program promoting the militarization of police forces.Kiswani highlighted the cases of Rabab Abdulhadi, a San Francisco State University professor targeted by Zionists and under intense harassment, and Reem’s Bakery in Oakland, Calif., where Zionists have targeted Reem Assil’s new venture and have attacked her, the workers and the bakery.The forum organizers are calling for a march on Aug. 5 and asking for court support on Aug. 10 for Eric Clanton, an Antifa activist facing trumped-up charges.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Reporters Without Borders gets civil party status in Bourget case

first_img Amid French judicial moves to reactivate an investigation into the near-fatal shooting of Paris Match reporter Jacques-Marie Bourget on 21 October 2000 in Ramallah, on the West Bank, Reporters Without Borders reported today that it has been granted civil party status in the case before a high-level court in Paris.“We are calling for the clarification of the circumstances of the shooting in which Bourget nearly died,” the press freedom organisation said. “He has been demanding justice for five years and it is high time that all the witnesses, without exception, are finally questioned by judicial investigators.”French judge Michèle Ghanassia revived the case on 7 September by issuing a formal written request to the Israeli authorities for the interrogation of the Israeli soldiers who witnessed the shooting, so that she can complete her investigation. Court lawyer Jean Martin notified Ghanassia in writing of Reporters Without Borders’ civil party status in the case on 16 September.Bourget was shot in the chest as he was covering clashes between Palestinians and Israeli soldiers. He was rushed to a Ramallah hospital where he underwent a long operation after the Israeli authorities refused to authorize his transfer to a hospital in Jerusalem. The Israelis also blocked his evacuation to France until French President Jacques Chirac personally intervened.The day after the shooting, Bourget was admitted to Beaujon hospital in France where doctors found that the bullet had done serious damage to his left lung, pierced his collarbone and three ribs and injured the left brachial plexus, causing paralysis to his left hand. After the bullet was finally extracted on 29 June 2001, a ballistics examination established that it was Israeli-made and was fired from an M16 assault rifle, a firearm widely used by the Israeli army. This supported Bourget’s theory that he was deliberately targeted by an Israeli sniper. The fact that his interpreter, Abdel Hamid Khorti, was gunned down a few days after the shooting of Bourget also supported this theory, he argued.Bourget filed a complaint with a high-level court in Paris in early 2002, claiming he had been the victim of a murder attempt. The counter-terrorist section (SAT) of the Paris criminal investigative police was put in charge of the investigation, in which many witnesses have stated that the shots came from Israeli positions.

Photo courtesy HillsidesDivision Director of Transition-Aged Youth Services Thomas Lee introduced the premiere of the Youth Moving On video where youth share the struggles they faced before coming to Youth Moving On and receiving the support they needed to successfully transition to adulthood. Photo courtesy HillsidesEbony Porter, 23, a youth formerly in foster care and residing in Youth Moving On (YMO), a transitional living and housing program of Hillsides, expressed gratitude to numerous staff for their support in guiding her, challenging her potential, boosting her self-confidence, and “never giving up on me.”Porter was among three youth who commemorated the 10-year anniversary of YMO on June 18 and detailed how their involvement in the program helped them overcome difficulties and childhood trauma on their journey to independence and success.Another youth, Victor Pinzon, 23, who grew up in Northern California and was involved in the juvenile justice system, learned about YMO while living at Optimist Youth Homes and Family Services. He expressed gratitude for staff helping to prepare him to successfully transition to adulthood. “When I left YMO I was ready to be on my own. I had a job, was going to school and had a lot of independent living skills that I got at YMO.”Pinzon is back at YMO, not as a resident but as a peer partner. He hopes other youth will be inspired by his story and know that they, too, can be successful in their journey to adulthood.At 23, Dejanai Sims’ journey has taken her through neglect, abuse, gang violence, low self-esteem, and many other obstacles. Yet she told guests that “resilience helps me press towards the mark of my calling.” She plans on becoming a social worker.“I am a firm believer that if you can save one child’s life you have done a great job. Because I have overcome many obstacles a wonderful trait has been instilled in me,” said Sims. “Resilience! It allows me to push through these bumpy roads I face.”The program, which offers affordable quality housing, career training and placement, and a wide array of support services to youth 16 – 25, has seen huge growth since it opened its doors to two youth in 2005. To date, YMO has served 225 youth through its housing program and has expanded from 10 apartments at one site to 33 apartments across five sites.The celebration continued with the premiere of a video featuring several youth involved in the YMO program followed by a catered lunch of signature dishes by Panda Inn. Guests were also treated to Dots cupcakes, a DJ, a photo booth, arts and crafts, an obstacle course and slide, games, a game truck, and a resource fair.YMO offers transitional housing in Pasadena and affordable permanent supportive housing in Metro downtown and Korea Town. Youth in the housing program receive life skills training, money management training, and mental health and wellness counseling. YMO was founded with the support from The Everychild Foundation, which raises funds for children in need.Over the 10 years, YMO has expanded the programs it serves to youth. Thomas Lee, division director of transition-aged youth services, told guests that there is so much more work to do. “We have evolved with the clients and we have evolved with the changing needs of our youth. We must continue to keep listening.”YMO youth also receive workforce development training and have access to 20-plus workforce development internships across the San Gabriel Valley. Created with the support of The Deutsch Foundation and the expertise of Columbia University’s School of Social Work, YMO’s Workforce Development Program helps youth become valued workers and competitive in today’s labor market.Two years ago, YMO opened a Peer Resource Center (PRC), a one stop drop-in center for youth 16 – 25. To date, the Center has served more than 1,000 youth. The PRC offers a wide variety of services to youth in the community, including life guidance & support/ communication, housing resources and linkages, resume development, job application assistance, and career planning and goal setting.YMO is one of four core programs of Hillsides. Hillsides, headquartered in Pasadena, serves more than 8,900 individuals throughout Los Angeles County, from Hollywood to Pomona. Hillsides provide high quality care, advocacy and innovative services that promote safe, permanent environments where children and young people can thrive.
