Jailed Yukos oil tycoon rails against Kremlin

first_img Tags: NULL Share KCS-content JAILED former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky used his closing argument at his second trial yesterday to raise his profile as a political prisoner, saying he would sacrifice his life for the rule of law in Russia.Khodorkovsky said he was “ashamed” of Russia, a country where “a person who collides with ‘the system’ has no rights whatsoever”.“If I have to (die in prison), I will not hesitate. The things I believe in are worth dying for,” Khodorkovsky told a packed courtroom.Russia’s most high profile prisoner is facing six more years behind bars in his second trial, meaning he would serve a total of 14 years in a case that the West has been watching to gauge President Dmitry Medvedev’s commitment to the rule of law.In the second trial, the former Yukos oil company chief is accused of stealing $27bn (£16.9bn) worth of oil from his firm. The verdict is due to be handed down on 15 December.

Poor communication has led to some heated exchanges in media conferences as journalists demanded information.Tepco could face compensation claims topping $130bn (£81bn) if Japan’s worst nuclear crisis drags on, Bank of America-Merrill Lynch estimated this week, further fuelling expectations Japan’s government will step in to save Asia’s largest utility.Investor concern about the future of Tokyo Electric mounted after its president, Masataka Shimizu, was admitted to hospital and the company said on Wednesday that 2 trillion yen (£14bn) in emergency loans from Japan’s major banks would not cover its costs. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastMoneyPailShe Was Famous, Now She Works In {State}MoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesDrivepedia20 Of The Most Underrated Vintage CarsDrivepediamoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comZen HeraldThe Truth About Why ’40s Actor John Wayne Didn’t Serve In WWII Has Come To LightZen HeraldBetterBeDrones Capture Images No One Was Suppose to SeeBetterBeElite HeraldExperts Discover Girl Born From Two Different SpeciesElite Herald Thursday 31 March 2011 8:30 pm Sharecenter_img Government to take control of Japan’s Tepco whatsapp whatsapp Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Paul Klitzke’s “Clergy in Cars” series features a rotating cast of guest priests and bishops, including one episode featuring Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. In the Diocese of Texas, the Rev. Daryl Hay and the Rev. Matt Stone give their own faith-based takes on popular culture in “Clergy in Cars Getting Coffee,” which made a special appearance in July at General Convention in Austin.“For me, what has been important is experiencing and creating these moments when people get to see clergy and priests are real people … the foibles and the humanity,” said Stone, curate at St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Bryan, Texas. Hay is the congregation’s rector.On Klitzke’s series, those “real people” moments have included Curry talking in October about how his iPhone serves as a spiritual aid for scheduling Bible readings and reminding him of his monthly fasts.“Anything can be used for good or ill, so our job as the people of God is to take it and let it be used for good,” Curry told Klitzke, rector at Episcopal Church of the Ascension in Dallas.The same principle could be applied to social media. Texas Bishop Andrew Doyle “encourages us to go into the spaces where people gather, and Facebook is one of the places where people gather,” Hay said. He and Stone spoke to Episcopal News Service by phone – the same phone Stone uses to film the duo’s videos.“It’s, like, an iPhone 5,” Stone said of his older-model device. “It’s definitely a priest’s phone.”The idea for the video series had been bumping around in Hay’s head for a while, but “it was something I would never have done if Matt hadn’t been here. He made me do it.”“He shared the idea. And I said, ‘Great, when do we do it?’” Stone recalled.Stone, ordained as a priest a year ago, was a deacon when he joined St. Andrew’s in summer 2017. That September, he and Hay pushed “record” on their first Facebook Live video on the congregation’s Facebook page. The live viewership of that inaugural “Clergy in Cars” was tiny, but they were amazed when, over time, it amassed more than 4,000 replay views.The congregation’s Facebook page also has increased its “likes” by about 25 percent over that period, another triumph that Hay attributes to the videos. (Those likes now are nearing 450, though the priests have since spun off the video series into its own Facebook page with nearly 300 likes.)Though Hay and Stone sometimes invite guests along for the ride, including for special episodes of “Clergy Carpool Karaoke,” most videos are 10 to 15 minutes of the pair’s own priestly banter as they drive to Sweet Eugene’s, a coffee shop in College Station, Texas. Stone generally handles the technical side of things, with his iPhone stuck to the windshield, while Hay drives.“For us, it’s been a way to engage popular culture and build some bridges,” Stone said. An early episode referenced movies, from “Star Wars” to “Love Actually.” “We want to help people build bridges between their faith and their everyday life.”Facebook Live offers the added benefit of allowing real-time engagement, Stone said, and they invite viewers to join them at the coffee shop when the camera stops recording, creating an opportunity for real-world connections.There is no regular schedule for the videos at this point, though at minimum they are seasonal, with an episode last month for Advent and another planned around Ash Wednesday for Lent. One of Stone’s favorite moments, though, wasn’t gabbing in a car but rather interviewing Doyle at General Convention and getting the bishop’s impression of Big Tex, a 50-foot statue and icon of the State Fair of Texas.“It was just wonderful,” Stone said. “Getting behind the curtain with a bishop, for me that was something really unique and special. We’re letting people see something they might not otherwise.”Klitzke shares his cross-Texas counterparts’ interest in social media experimentation as a tool for spiritual enrichment and evangelism, though he also sees his video series in Dallas as a window into what clergy talk about when they talk with each other.In cars. And clergy in Texas spend a lot of time in cars.Klitzke and the Rev. Rebecca Tankersley, associate rector at Episcopal Church of the Transfiguration in Dallas, were driving back from a preaching conference when their discussion turned to the topic of what makes for a typical clergy-to-clergy discussion.“We were having these great theological conversations … everything from serious theology down to fun whatever,” Klitzke recalled. That’s when he first hatched the idea for “Clergy in Cars.” “Why not try to capture what this looks like? And my hope was it would make the whole church more accessible to people.”After launching the series in August with the Rev. Leslie Stewart of Resurrection Episcopal Church in Plano, Texas, as his first guest passenger, Klitzke scheduled about one 15-minute episode a week, posting every Tuesday to YouTube and Facebook. More recently he has been averaging about one new episode a month.Most of the videos have a few hundred viewers, sometimes a thousand, but the episode featuring the presiding bishop went “viral” and topped 20,000 views. Interviewing Curry was “a joy,” Klitzke said, but he also clearly had fun asking Dallas Bishop George Sumner in the show’s second episode whether the bishop preferred tacos or BBQ after three years in Dallas.“I really, really like the tacos,” Sumner said. “However, after three years, I’ve liked them too much, and I am on my low-carb phase. … It’s all brisket right now.”After that light-hearted opening, Klitzke and Sumner shifted away from the culinary and got deeper into to the theological, a format that the show has repeated with fellow Episcopal priests and a diverse lineup of clergy from other faith traditions.One question Klitzke tries to ask all his guests is what they see as the preeminent social issue facing people of faith today.“It was something I had been wrestling with,” he said. “I have found the variety of answers to be really meaningful.”Unlike Hay and Stone, Klitzke prerecords his videos rather than stream them live. His gear is just a windshield-mounted GoPro camera. After some complaints about the audio quality, he also invested in a better microphone.The equipment isn’t as important as the content of the conversation, though Sumner’s answer to Klitzke’s question about social issues took on the spiritual cost of technology.“I think that one of the great issues of our time is the way in which technology continues to mean that machines intervene between us as we try to relate to one another as humans,” Sumner said. “These machines will actually change our brains, but I think they also affect our souls.”The fact that such dialogue happened in a car instead of a church may be irrelevant to the clergy on camera, but by sharing with his audience, Klitzke hopes to breathe new life into “the way we do formation.” He and his guest are modeling theological reflection, in a way, for those who may be interested in doing the same.“To me, it’s an extension of preaching and teaching,” he said.And if anyone thinks the resemblance to Seinfeld’s much-more-polished Netflix production might be a coincidence, Klitzke has no problem setting the record straight.“It’s a complete knockoff,” Klitzke said, with at least one obvious exception. “I tell people, I can afford a cup of coffee, but I can’t afford a film crew.”– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

LSAD brings new art back to the city of Limerick

first_imgFROM Wednesday July 15, 2020 the public will have the opportunity to view first-hand the final year work of Limerick School of Art & Design, LIT, 2020 Fine Art Graduates, at the Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA).A partnership between LSAD Fine Art Department and LCGA has allowed for this creative final year graduate show Physical Impact to go on display in the spacious art gallery on Perry Square.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up In May this year LSAD’s final year students were forced to overcome the limitations set by a world pandemic and launch their end of year showcase on a special online platform  www.lsadgraduates.ie, unable to host the renowned graduate show on the Clare Street, Campus.With Covid 19 restrictions now easing, 36 of the Fine Art graduates will display their work for the ten days (inclusive) from July 15 to July 26 Social Distancing in the large ground floor will allow up to 40 people at a time return to the gallery and enjoy the art on display.Dr. Tracy Fahey, Head of Department of Fine Art LSAD thanked the staff at the LCGA for their generosity and for offering the gallery to the fine art graduates to display their work, especially at such a crucial juncture in their careers.“With the advent of the global COVID-19 crisis, all plans for this semester were disrupted; the normal sequencing of research and realisation of final year projects had to take a different trajectory, culminating in the LSAD digital showcase of Impact which launched on May 30,” she said.“Physical Impact allows for a real-life manifestation of some of the fine art work that went live on the Impact graduate showcase. It allows the public to experience a rich cross-section of work from our students of Painting, Print Contemporary Practice, Sculpture and Combined Media and Photography Film Video.” “It’s been a very strange year. All around the world, institutions and individuals have had to adapt, rethink, re- shape and reconfigure. It’s been a time of great anxiety and upheaval. But in this period, kindness and solidarity have bloomed. “We see it all round us in neighbourly acts of goodness, from shared shopping trips to acts of mutual encouragement and support. A lovely example of this support is the way that LCGA have reached out to the Fine Art graduates from LSAD to offer this unexpected show during July 2020,” added Dr Fahey.“Within this global pandemic, the arts have never been of more value; in terms of comfort, aspiration, distraction and self-expression. It’s so important for our 2020 graduates to feel supported, validated, seen by the visitors to this show.”Áine Nic Giolla Coda, Lecturer in Painting, who has overseen the project with LCGA,  congratulated the graduates on the high standard of work created under difficult circumstances and paid tribute to her colleagues for working with the students to ensure this show can now be brought into the physical domain. Physical Impact will be open to the public from 10am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, and 12 noon to 5pm on Sunday, from July 15 to July 26, 2020 and all the work on show will be for sale.Meanwhile the complete LSAD Graduate Showcase can still be enjoyed on www.lsadgraduates.ie.  TAGSKeeping Limerick PostedlimerickLimerick PostLSAD Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed live Facebook Billy Lee names strong Limerick side to take on Wicklow in crucial Division 3 clash Email Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Linkedin LifestyleArtsLimerickNewsLSAD brings new art back to the city of LimerickBy Meghann Scully – July 14, 2020 185 Donal Ryan names Limerick Ladies Football team for League openercenter_img WhatsApp RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Advertisement WATCH: “Everyone is fighting so hard to get on” – Pat Ryan on competitive camogie squads Twitter Previous articleFoynes to host Maureen O’Hara centenary celebrationNext articleLimerick Celtics and UL Huskies entrance fees for Division One reduced Meghann Scully Print Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live last_img read more
