Oran en Liberia porque ‘el ébola pase’

Desde que comenzara el brote, ha habido 2.127 casos confirmados en el laboratorio, probables y presuntos y 1.145 muertes entre las probadas en el laboratorio, las probables y las presuntas, dijo la organización.“La escala, duración y letalidad del brote del ébola ha generado un alto nivel de temor y ansiedad públicos, que transcienden al África Occidental” decía otro comunicado de prensa de la OMS. “Tales reacciones son comprensibles, dada la elevada tasa de fatalidad y la ausencia de una vacuna o de una cura”.La organización reconoció que las personas están buscando curas en todas partes y que algunos están poniendo esperanzas en productos y terapias peligrosos. “Todos los rumores de cualesquier otros productos o terapias efectivos son falsos”, dijo la OMS en el comunicado. “Su uso puede ser peligroso. En Nigeria, por ejemplo, al menos dos personas murieron después de tomar agua salada, que se rumoreaba que los protegería”.“Las conductas personales más efectivas consisten en evitar situaciones de alto riesgo bien conocidas, reconocer los síntomas de la infección y reportarlos a tiempo para [ser objeto] de análisis y atención medica. La evidencia sugiere que la atención en las primeras etapas aumenta las posibilidades de supervivencia”, dice también el comunicado.La organización también prevenía a las personas de no confiar en la extensa eficacia de los medicamentos experimentales para tratar el ébola, que se autorizaron la semana pasada, debido a problemas de inocuidad, dificultad de administrarlos en esos escenarios y al limitado suministro de las drogas.La OMS ha calificado el brote como “el más extenso, grave y complejo”, desde que la enfermedad se detectó por primera vez en Zaire, ahora República Democrática del Congo, en 1976. La enfermedad causó la muerte de 280 personas durante ese brote, según el Centro para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades de Estados Unidos.—La Rda.

Tropas liberianas han establecido puestos de control del ébola e impiden el acceso público a algunas de las ciudades más afectadas después de que el país declarara un estado de emergencia para contener el peor brote de la enfermedad que se conoce. Foto de Reuters.[Episcopal News Service] El arzobispo de Liberia, Jonathan Bau-Bau Bonaparte Hart, está orando a Dios que esta [epidemia del] ébola pase” en África Occidental y su pueblo recobre pronto la salud.Hart, que conversó con Episcopal News Service el 18 de agosto por vía telefónica desde su oficina en la catedral de La Trinidad de Monrovia, pasó el día anterior visitando iglesias de todas las denominaciones en la capital para instar a las personas a practicar las medidas preventivas que los trabajadores sanitarios y del gobierno están pidiendo que se tomen y “a abstenerse de cualquier cosa que nos traiga el ébola”.También el 18 de agosto, Hart envío una carta de dos pliegos por correo electrónico a ENS en la que explicaba que un comunicado reciente del Consejo Liberiano de Iglesias sobre la necesidad de orar por el brote del ébola había sido alterado por una persona desconocida para incluir una referencia a la homosexualidad y divulgarlo luego en los medios de prensa. Hart es el presidente del Consejo.El periódico Liberian Observer informó el 31 de julio que el Consejo había pedido tres días de “ayuno y oración a puertas cerradas” en toda la nación, del 6 al 8 de agosto. El periódico decía que el primer acuerdo de la resolución en la que se pedían estas jornadas de oración decía “que Dios estaba enojado con Liberia, y que el ébola es una plaga. Los liberianos tienen que orar y buscar el perdón de Dios por la corrupción y [la comisión de] actos inmorales (tales como el homosexualismo, etc.) que sigue penetrando en nuestra sociedad. Como cristianos, debemos arrepentirnos y buscar el perdón de Dios”.En su carta a ENS, Hart escribió que el llamado a la oración surgió de una reunión del Consejo en la que los líderes de la Iglesia recurrieron a la Escritura para entender que estaban “en medio de una plaga” y que, al igual que los hijos de Israel, ellos y la nación eran llamados a orar, a ayunar y a arrepentirse.“Según hablábamos del estado de nuestra nación y de cómo los más vulnerables de nuestra sociedad —las mujeres, los niños, los pobres, los que no son capaces de expresarse siguen sufriendo las consecuencias de una nación en postguerra que aún carece de atención sanitaria, educación y soportes económicos básicos—, nosotros, los líderes, sentimos que si Dios está enojado con nosotros, debemos haber hecho algo contra la voluntad de Dios”.Los miembros del Consejo convinieron en que la nación necesitaba arrepentirse de “sus faltas, que incluyen avaricia, corrupción y falta de mayordomía en el cuidado de nuestra nación y de su pueblo”.El debate durante la reunión incluyó una conversación acerca de la sexualidad humana. El Consejo es teológicamente diverso “y en consecuencia interpretamos las enseñanzas sobre la sexualidad humana en más de un sentido”, escribió Hart.“Si bien todos estamos de acuerdo con la protección de las personas de actos de violencia sexual, algunos de mis colegas creen que la orientación sexual de nuestros hermanos [hombres y mujeres] homosexuales es contraria a la voluntad de Dios”, dijo él en su carta.Sin embargo, no hubo ningún acuerdo de mencionar la sexualidad humana en la declaración del Consejo de Iglesias, escribió Hart y “ni yo ni mis colegas que tienen un punto de vista diferente sobre la sexualidad humana aprobamos la inclusión de la palabra ‘homosexualidad’ como algo de lo cual la nación tenga que arrepentirse”.“Alguien decidió incluir esa palabra” en un comunicado en que él creía que todos los miembros habían estado de acuerdo, escribió Hart.El arzobispo, inmediatamente después de la reunión, viajó a la parte sur de Liberia y —escribió— sin acceso a Internet no tuvo “manera de saber lo que decía el comunicado” hasta que regresó a Monrovia para encontrarse con llamadas de “episcopales liberianos muy enojados, tanto en Liberia como en otras partes del mundo”.En la carta del 18 de agosto, Hart escribió que, como presidente del Consejo de Iglesias él debía haber ‘revisado personalmente la versión final del comunicado y haberla editado”.“Lamento profundamente no haberlo hecho”, escribió él.Hart pidió disculpas a “a todas y cada una de las personas a quienes haya lastimado esa declaración” y escribió que esperaba que los problemas del comunicado no definieran el “increíble testimonio” de su Iglesia en Liberia.El arzobispo liberiano Jonathan Bau-Bau Bonaparte HartTestimonio fiel en LiberiaEse testimonio está anclado en la fe. Los liberianos siempre han recurrido a su fe en tiempos difíciles, escribió el arzobispo, “desde la ejecución de ciertos funcionarios del gobierno, que eran algunos de nuestros feligreses y parientes, cuando el sangriento golpe de Estado militar, hasta los 14 años de insensata y cruenta guerra civil que atestiguó el peor comportamiento humano y ahora este virus del ébola”.Hart dijo que el ébola es una guerra nueva y diferente. “A diferencia de la guerra donde sabíamos que había soldados y rebeldes armados y motivados por un profundo odio, esta nueva guerra es silente, invisible, pero igualmente devastadora”.Los trabajadores sanitarios de Monrovia, la capital de Liberia, se sienten abrumados por su empeño de recoger y disponer adecuadamente de los cadáveres de los que han muerto de ébola, dijo Hart a ENS. A veces a la gente se le agota la paciencia de esperar y “a veces recurren a accesos de violencia para atraer a la policía”,.La violencia del fin de semana en una clínica para exámenes y supervisión de personas que habían estado expuestas al ébola ocurrió, según lo que Hart supo, porque los residentes de la comunidad vecina pensaban que los pacientes en efecto sí tenían ébola. Atacaron la clínica “y se llevaron algunos de los materiales del centro de salud”, apuntó.Nuevos informes del ataque ocurrido en lo que Hart llamó “uno de las peores áreas marginales” de Monrovia, daba cuenta de que las sábanas y los colchones ensangrentados también se los habían llevado y que 17 personas que estaban ingresadas en la clínica habían desaparecido. Según Hart, las personas también luchan con los sentimientos contradictorios de cuidar a los miembros de su familia enfermos y preparar los cadáveres de los que han muerto con la necesidad de no ponerse en contacto con los fluidos corporales a través de los cuales el ébola, que es un virus hemorrágico, se propaga.Dijo además que él y otros en las iglesias y en el gobierno están instando a las personas a crear puestos para lavarse las manos y a lavarse las manos con frecuencia en agua tratada con cloro.Además, hay personas que “aún no creen que lo que está ocurriendo es el ébola —que aún no creen que hay ébola en nuestro país”, dijo Hart.

Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and creation, center, and Denise Treviño-Gomez, missioner for intercultural development in the Diocese of Texas, during the Episcopal Women’s History Project conference underway at the Maritime Center in Maryland. Photo: Sandra T. Montes via Facebook[Episcopal News Service – Linthicum Heights, Maryland] The Rt. Rev. Jennifer L. Baskerville-Burrows was deep into her sermon, rhythmically invoking the names of a great cloud of witnesses whose presence was deeply felt by those who gathered near Baltimore this week for the Episcopal Women’s History Project conference.“You know them, women like Pauli Murray; say her name! Verna Dozier; say her name! Margaret Bush, first black woman to serve in the House of Deputies; say her name,” said Baskerville-Burrows, the newly-elected bishop of Indianapolis and the first black female bishop diocesan elected in the Episcopal Church. “Shout them out! Who else? Say her name! The Rev. Carmen Guererro; say her name! Shout out these names to our children, so they know who they are.”The June 12-15 conference, the first in the group’s history to focus on women of color, brought together lay and ordained women from across the country. Araceli Ma, who works with the Latino ministries in the Diocese of Washington, said she came to ensure a Latino presence at the conference and to show her two daughters, ages 13 and 10, the opportunities open to them.During their time together, the women shared stories of their own hopes and challenges, often finding an overwhelming sense of connection in their particular experiences.“My story is our story,” Baskerville-Burrows said during her June 12 homily.The Rev. Matilda Dunn, president of the History Project, said planning for this year’s conference began about two years ago. The project had been collecting oral histories and stories from women throughout the Episcopal Church, from the famous to the faithful parishioners and altar guild members who often form the backbone of a parish.“We need to honor them because they’re also doing the work of the church,” she said. “It’s important to me because the history has to be kept for all of us, men and women.”Yet, Dunn and others felt a need to set aside some time for women of color to honor and celebrate their collective history. Working with the Rev. Nan Peete, they secured Baskerville-Burrows as homilist and the Rev. Kelly Brown Douglas, newly-appointed dean of the Episcopal Divinity School, as the keynote speaker. The conference opened Monday, the 87th birthday of the Rt. Rev. Barbara C. Harris, the first woman ordained a bishop in the Anglican Communion.On the morning of June 13, Douglas urged those attending the conference to speak the truth about their experiences and how their lives have shaped their view of the world.“We have to tell the truth about who we are. This country does not like to tell the truth about itself,” she said. “Now, if the Episcopal Church tells the truth about itself, what it is. It will be telling the truth about this nation.”During her address, she cited recent census statistics to offer a glimpse of the struggles and challenges faced by many women and in particular women of color. About 25 percent of all black and Hispanic women live poverty, with the figure reaching 28 percent for Native American women. Consequently, children also suffer. Poverty rates range from 13 percent of Asian children to 36 percent of African-American children, said Douglas.Criminal justice figures are equally grim with incarceration rates for black and Hispanic women far exceeding population rates.“Given these facts, what does all of this mean to us who are gathered here?” said Douglas. “We are called to show forth what it means to be church. We are called to remember [Jesus] by acting and doing as he would in the world.”For Douglas, Jesus’ encounter with the Samaritan woman as told in Gospel of John, was a perfect example of how one crosses social barriers, lays aside social privilege and finds true and authentic communion. She reminded them that even though their lives have brought them inside the world of the Episcopal Church, they often remain outsiders with a unique perspective. She also urged them to find common ground with the women who were not in the conference center, where dessert trays and coffee urns filled the tables outside the air-conditioned meeting room.“The Samaritan women of our day are the women who look like us,” she said. “It is to these women that we must be accountable.”During a question-and-answer session following the keynote address, Grecia Adriana Rivas, who lives near San Diego, California, spoke of the fear and anxiety rampant in the immigrant and undocumented communities in recent months. U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents are seen patrolling the county fair, or keeping an eye on churches, she said.“I was so mad,” she said. “We can’t even have fun anymore. We can’t even practice our faith anymore.”Douglas responded with a repeated call for solidarity.“We need to show up when it’s our cause and when it’s not our cause because it is our cause,” she said. “We need to be there for each other.”Throughout the conference, the women spent time questioning the meaning of diversity, the practical aspects of being a welcoming church, and the cultural histories each brings to the church. During worship, when they were invited to pray the Lord’s Prayer in the language of their hearts, the familiar words might be heard in English, Spanish or Navajo.The Rev. Cornelia Eaton, a deacon who serves in the Diocese of Navajoland, mentioned the painful story of Fort Sumner, New Mexico, where in the 1860s the U. S. government forcibly moved thousands of Navajo off their land to live in miserable conditions on the Bosque Redondo. The relocation effort failed and after a few years, the Navajo were returned to their homes. But, the story lives on and the fort and its environs are remembered as “the place of suffering,” said Eaton.“We are all weavers of many cultures and traditions,” she said. “I became a weaver of the Christian tradition and the Navajo tradition.”Some of the stories shared involved quirky encounters that resonated with those in attendance and brought laughter to the room. Sandra Montes, who is Afro-Peruvian and is from the Diocese of Texas, recounted a time when she and her mother were shopping for greeting cards in Boston, Massachusetts. Montes said that as they were laughing and reading the cards, two older white women walked up to them and said: “’The Mexican cards are over there.’” Montes said she and her mother looked at the women and replied: ‘”But we’re Peruvian.’”The Rev. Yein Esther Kim, ordained in 2014 from the Episcopal Divinity School and now serving in the Diocese of Los Angeles, shared that “showing up” can take on a particular nuance for a woman of color.“When they feel [an event] is not diverse enough, or multicultural enough, they’ll invite me, as if I could bring them just a little diversity,” said Kim, who is Korean-American. “So, I go, because nothing will happen if I don’t show up.”Indeed, the value of showing up, of being seen and bringing their voice to the cultural conversation, whether in marches, on social media, or in the life of the Episcopal Church was not lost on the women.”God is faithful—so let us be as well,” Baskerville-Burrows said during her opening homily. “Women of color will not be erased. We will not be made to be invisible. Let us learn to see as Jesus sees. For God says to us all, not the least to women of color in the church, “I see YOU”.— The Rev. M. Dion Thompson is a priest in the Diocese of Maryland.

‘He was a young fella when I was still playing with him’ – Carter speaks about Barrett partnership at the Blues

first_imgThursday Jun 4, 2020 ‘He was a young fella when I was still playing with him’ – Carter speaks about Barrett partnership at the Blues After a leaked whatsapp message got out yesterday, it was later confirmed that All Blacks and Canterbury legend Dan Carter has indeed joined the Blues in Auckland. He will line up alongside Beauden Barrett, doing great things for the relaunch of Super Rugby Aotearoa this month.ADVERTISEMENTAfter five years outside of New Zealand, the all time leading Super Rugby points scorer has returned, albeit in different colours to what fans are accustomed to seeing him in.The Canterbury Crusaders legend said that he is not thinking about lining up against his former side just yet (July 11th).“I talked to the old man. As a proud Cantab… as he has been throughout my career he’s been supportive. I’ve talked to Razor [Robinson] to let him know my reasoning, too.“It’s all happened really quickly. Last week I probably thought this was the last place I would be. I don’t want to think about what it would be like to play against the Crusaders – if that were to happen. I’ll deal with that later on.”“I want to use my experience to help the Blues,” Carter said.ADVERTISEMENT“I’ve been approached a few times over the years when Ted [Sir Graham Henry] was coaching, JK [Sir John Kirwan] as well. I didn’t obviously at the time. I didn’t think about it.“When the Japanese season was cancelled I just wanted to spend time with my family. It wasn’t until Leon called saying Stevie [Perofeta] had been ruled out for the season, that’s when I thought about it. He’s a pretty convincing guy.”“It took a while to put it [the jersey] on but once I got out there…it wasn’t really a team I thought I would be playing for but it’s an opportunity to come to training in the city my family is.”“We’ve been starved of sport and rugby. As a player we feel the same. With it being around the corner, it’s an exciting time. Super Rugby Aotearoa first came around I didn’t really think about playing in it… It’s more about getting my body up to speed to just be in contention to be selected. A great opportunity to help some of the young guys,” Carter added.ADVERTISEMENT“There’s a competitive edge in all pro spokespeople,” Carter explained.“At this stage I have to be realistic. I’ve played six games in the last 18 months. It’s going to be a process…no contact the last three months. The games in Japan gave me a lot of confidence to bounce back from the neck injury I had. Once I can get some work under the belt with the trainings, I want to be out there competing.“That’s what all sportspeople miss – that competitive edge and even just running around out there today brought that back.“It’s a bit of a favour for a good mate of mine and I’ll keep that favour in the back pocket. We’ve been teammates for a big part of my career and to be coached by him is great.“They’ve obviously gone through a challenging period. To be alongside some young players and someone like Beaudy is a great opportunity to give back,” Carter said.“I haven’t even thought about playing alongside Beauden. I’ve been impressed with the leadership role he’s taken with the All Blacks. He was a young fella when I was still playing with him, now I’m looking forward to pick his brain for my learning.“Fans have been starved of live sport and hopefully they will show their appreciation. There’s still some uncertainty around the crowd situation but hopefully, they can come out and support their teams.” Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error News Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO Exeter vs Toulouse is off as a number of… 25 WEEKS AGO Danny Cipriani leaves Gloucester with immediate… 25 WEEKS AGO ‘Aphiwe can’t believe it.
