Photo: NASA[Episcopal News Service] For many Episcopalians, the COVID-19 pandemic is a reminder of the interconnected nature of humanity: our health depends on the health of those around us, and small-scale individual actions can ultimately have global consequences. While the pandemic is demanding the world’s immediate attention, another crisis is looming that requires a similar level of urgent global action: climate change.That issue will take center stage as Episcopalians celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day on April 22. In 1970, the first Earth Day launched the modern environmental movement, with an estimated 20 million Americans demonstrating for environmental protection; today, it is said to be the largest secular observance in the world. Fifty years ago, primary concerns in the United States included pesticides, oil spills, toxic waste dumps and other agricultural and industrial pollution. While many of these problems have been ameliorated since then by the Environmental Protection Agency (created that same year), the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act, the greenhouse effect caused by carbon emissions has emerged as the most dire threat to the environment and to the future of the human race.“It’s strange and fitting that we’re marking the 50th Earth Day during a global pandemic,” said the Rev. Canon Stephanie Spellers, canon to the presiding bishop for evangelism, reconciliation and stewardship of creation.“COVID-19 has forced us to acknowledge the web of life that connects us and all of creation. We are – for better and for worse – in this together. I pray we will really look around on Earth Day, notice the presence of God in the trees that keep on blooming, the birds whose song you can now hear, the waters you long to visit as soon as we can move freely. Notice, be grateful and swear to protect and honor all that God has made. In the process, we are also saving our own lives,” Spellers told Episcopal News Service.While it may seem counterintuitive to focus on climate change amid the COVID-19 emergency, the two issues are inextricably linked. Climate change compounds the problems that lead to disease outbreaks and that limit effective responses. And a Harvard University study has found that even a small increase in long-term exposure to air pollution (which disproportionately affects African Americans) significantly increased patients’ risk of dying from COVID-19. At the same time, within the past few weeks, the Trump administration has been rolling back regulations on air pollution and ignoring its own public health experts’ recommendations on protecting citizens from industrial emissions.The Episcopal Church has long been engaged in climate action and other environmental stewardship efforts (like protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and fighting against the Dakota Access Pipeline) under the theological mandate of being good stewards of God’s creation. So, although it won’t be possible to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day by holding rallies, the church invites Episcopalians to participate in other ways.Washington National Cathedral will hold two virtual worship services on Sunday, April 19. A Holy Eucharist service at 11:15 a.m. EDT will feature a sermon from the Rev. Margaret Bullitt-Jonas, creation care missioner for the Diocese of Western Massachusetts. Then, at 2 p.m. EDT, the National Cathedral will hold a multifaith Earth Day service focused on climate action with prayer, song and a message from Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. Episcopalians can also participate in the interfaith Nationwide Climate Prayer. Other Earth Day services and events across the church can be found at TryTank’s Digital Church Guide.The National Cathedral and the presiding bishop’s office will also co-host a discussion on creation care and environmental justice via Zoom and Facebook Live at 8 p.m. EDT on Earth Day, April 22, with church leaders including Spellers, Bullitt-Jonas and Bishop David Rice of the Diocese of San Joaquin. More Earth Day resources for congregations are available from the Episcopal Church Foundation. The presiding bishop’s office also invites Episcopalians to share their prayers for the natural world and their Earth Day experiences – how they’re taking action to protect the environment, where they see life and hope in creation – on social media.Another way Episcopalians can observe Earth Day while confined at home is to use the Carbon Tracker developed by the Diocese of California. The concept has been generating churchwide buzz since the diocese launched an early prototype of the tracker in July 2018 during the 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas. Since then, web developers have continued to refine the tool while inviting more Episcopalians to test it out. The tool can track participants’ carbon emissions from all of the church’s 110 dioceses and regional areas. The Diocese of California has organized webinars to help people navigate the tool, and as of this month, it reported 1,350 participating households.Stephanie Taylor, the diocese’s communication director, said a key challenge going forward will be to broaden the pool of participants beyond those who already had been taking personal steps to curb climate change.So far, “it’s a lot of enthusiasm from people who are generally more plugged in to the environment, to care of creation, stewardship of creation,” Taylor told Episcopal News Service in an interview last month. Likewise, the West Coast is overrepresented in the early results. The Diocese of California has the most participating households, with 402, followed by Los Angeles with 180 and Olympia in Washington with 154.“The next step is going to be getting it out to the mainstream,” Taylor said. Diocesan officials are making the case to Episcopalians across the church that even simple actions to improve the environment and preserve God’s creation can be meaningful.“Small, tiny actions do matter,” Taylor said, and adding those actions to the tracker can place individual work in the context of the collective impact. “When you take those actions collectively with other Episcopalians … the numbers start to add up.”– Egan Millard is an assistant editor and reporter for Episcopal News Service.

Val Demings, Stephanie Murphy, and Darren Soto today announced that the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has awarded more than $2.1 million to Orange County to help individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS obtain access to medical care and critical support services.The federal grant, awarded through HHS’s HIV Emergency Relief Program, provides direct financial assistance to metropolitan areas that have been most severely affected by the HIV epidemic.Said Rep. Demings, “Last year I held an HIV/AIDS roundtable with local and national experts who brought a powerful message: with the proper funding, testing, and medication, we can completely manage and prevent new transmissions of HIV in America. HIV is not the frightening diagnosis that it was thirty years ago. In fact, revolutionary treatments have given hope and a new lease on life to millions of people.“This crucial new funding will help Central Florida work to #EndTheStigma and ensure that every member of our community has the chance to live the same full and rich life as anyone else. I am excited to continue working with local advocates and community organizations to ensure access to care for everyone.”Said Rep. Murphy, “I’m pleased to announce this federal grant for Orange County that will enhance ongoing efforts in central Florida to combat HIV/AIDS. These federal dollars will help prevent new infections and improve the quality of life for those living with HIV/AIDS. I will keep working to secure federal funding that promotes stronger and healthier communities.”Said Rep. Soto, “I am extremely proud to have worked with Congresswoman Murphy and Congresswoman Demings to secure funding to help Central Floridians fighting HIV/AIDS. This funding will be instrumental in providing necessary medical care and support services for those who need it most, like our friends in the LGBTQ+ community.”In 2017, the last year for which data is available, there were about 10,000 individuals in Orange County living with HIV or AIDS. According to reports, in 2017, the Orlando region ranked second among all major metropolitan areas in the country in new HIV cases.Grant funding can be used by the county to provide outpatient and ambulatory health services, financial assistance to help patients purchase medicine and access care, home health care, mental health, and substance abuse services, outreach services, medical transportation, and linguistic services.

FREAKS has been commissioned to work on the transformation of a 170sqm flat downtown Paris, Rue de Rivoli. The Rue de Rivoli, which goes from Place de la Concorde until Place de la Bastille, has been built under Napoleon the 1st. The very first part of the street, facing the Jardin des Tuileries was his own property and he might have lived here or there in one of those chic flats.Save this picture!© David FoesselThe order was to transform that high ceiling stateroom into a familial flat, including two new children bedrooms in addition with the parents one. Therefore, the main target was to create new connections through the rooms ; some doors have been closed, some others have been pierced to avoid the typical dead-end distribution system. The service rooms on the backyard, at the end of a long and narrow corridor, have been transformed into the children area, to which one can acces by the service door, turning that part into an independent space within the flat. The bedrooms made profit of the high ceiling by embedding mezzanine, on which one can access by using a crinoline ladder.Save this picture!© David FoesselA new kitchen + bathroom have been placed on the street side. Most of the existing moldings have been painted in white. The very cute Venetian style boudoir has only been renewed.Save this picture!© David FoesselOne of the main interventions consisted in opening the new kitchen towards the dinning room while taking charge to use a contemporary architectural language within the space. No furniture or decoration were required, only a dozen of industrial waterproof neons (Sammode) with a special brass cladding have been used on the dinning room and billiard room walls.Save this picture!© David Foessel”We’re getting more and more bored by the nice shots where everything is so clean, with the perfect Scandinavian-design chair, the perfect white orchid, the perfect art book on the table”.Save this picture!© David Foessel”Napoleon supposedly having lived there was a running joke among the building team and us, that’s why we decided, the three of us, to sort of perform the photo shoot wearing Napoleon-style hats.”Save this picture!SectionProject gallerySee allShow lessSalotto Urbano Proposal / Michela Romano, Emanuela Ortolani, Federica Spinaci, Eleon…Unbuilt ProjectIn Residence: Claudio SilvestrinArticles Share Projects ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/374583/napoleon-flat-freaks-freearchitects Clipboard France Napoleon Flat / FREAKS freearchitectsSave this projectSaveNapoleon Flat / FREAKS freearchitectsSave this picture!© David FoesselHouses•Paris, France “COPY” Napoleon Flat / FREAKS freearchitects photographs: David FoesselPhotographs: David Foessel + 19 Share Area: 170 m² Area: 170 m² Photographs ArchDaily “COPY” Houses ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/374583/napoleon-flat-freaks-freearchitects Clipboard Architects: FREAKS freearchitects Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeFREAKS freearchitectsOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesParisHousesFrancePublished on May 22, 2013Cite: “Napoleon Flat / FREAKS freearchitects” 22 May 2013.

With the goal of imagining new and better housing alternatives that fulfil the requirements of the rural population that apply to the housing grants offered by the government, the National University and the Agricultural Bank opened the 2012 Low-income rural housing (VISR) Competition, which was the seed of the project that was later awarded the Corona ProHabitat Prize 2015.Save this picture!© Simón FiqueAs a result of that last competition, the National Coffee-growers Federation of Colombia (FNC), with the support of ENSAMBLE AI, built in 2016 the first prototype of the project with a budget of 10.000$ USD, which was donated to a low-income coffee-growers house selected at random by the FNC.Save this picture!Drawing Prototype C1In addition to the difficulty of designing quality low-income housing, the challenge was to tackle the diversity of climates and geographies present in the different rural regions of Colombia. The approach, then, avoided proposing a single and unique housing unit or model for mass production. On the contrary, the project consists of an architectural system that is flexible, appropriable and cheap, and that marks an intermediate point between mass production and the regionalization of participative processes for housing production.The system allows for different configurations of its parts in order for the resulting prototypes to adapt to different social, climatic and topographic conditions, covering the majority of Colombia’s rural scape. It is composed of two main modules (rooms / common areas and services) and three complementary modules (floor module, eaves module and roof module).Save this picture!© Juan Pablo PardoThe main modules have storage space between the ceiling and the actual roof which, at the same time, works as a thermal regulation air cushion. The module’s parts where designed to be easily and quickly mass-produced, transported to any region and assembled by local workers and without the need for any special equipment or construction experience.Save this picture!Prototype E1 SectionFinally, the project was designed to produce the fewer environmental impact possible: the structure is assembled from certified timber, the palafitte foundations require a minimum intervention on the site, the assembly process produces next to none waste and the generous roof surface allow for the quick and easy implementation of rain water collection and solar energy systems.Save this picture!© David MorenoProject gallerySee allShow lessLos Angeles Icon Angel’s Flight Reopens After RenovationsArchitecture NewsMama Gaia Restaurant / archimaniaSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Fundación, Magdalena, ColombiaLocation to be used only as a reference.

ABC News(NEW YORK) — A California woman was finally awarded child support 50 years after her ex-husband moved to Canada without making any of the court-ordered payments.Toni Anderson, 74, said she raised her 3-year-old daughter on her own after Donald Lenhart moved in the early 1970s when the couple got divorced. Lenhart is now back in the U.S. and lives in Oregon.“He made the first payment, $160,” Anderson told Good Morning America. “I was so excited, I will never forget. I deposited in my account and it bounced.”Anderson said for 49 years, her husband failed to make monthly child support payments, including $210 per month for a period of 30 months and thereafter child support payments of $160 per month until the child reached the age of 21.“I struggled a lot,” Anderson said. “I lived from paycheck to paycheck and I had to take a couple jobs, and it was a detriment to my daughter because I really wasn’t there for her.”Anderson’s daughter Lane Lenhart, 52, told GMA, “It was a challenge for me because mom was always working, always had to support us so she was never around. That was hard.”Anderson said in February, she woke up in the middle of the night and realized there’s no statute of limitations on child support in California. Anderson dug up old court papers and notified her ex-husband.According to the lawsuit, Lenhart owed $153,090, which includes back child support with interest and attorney fees.Lenhart said in a statement to GMA through his attorney, “I was glad to pay Ms. Anderson the child support that was owed and I wish her only the best in the future. We had an informal agreement that I was operating off of after our divorce, but when Ms. Anderson filed her motion in 2018 to collect the $35,000 in principal plus interest, I hired a private investigator to locate her so I could offer her payment. I am pleased we were able to reach an agreement.”The statute of limitations law for child support debt vary widely from state to state. In some cases, a parent has 10 years to file a complaint. In other states — like California, where Anderson lives — there’s no deadline.“Hopefully it will motivate individuals who owe the child support to come forward and pay that child support so they’re not hauled in court,” said Areva Martin, an attorney who’s not affiliated with Anderson and Lenhart’s case.Lenhart paid Anderson, who said she wants other single parents to know their rights and that there might be an opportunity to collect unpaid child support at any time.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

iStock/Evgeniy Skripnichenko(SEATTLE) — A crane collapse in Seattle on Saturday afternoon left four people dead and three others injured, police and fire officials said.Around 3:30 p.m. a crane from a construction site fell and crushed six cars near the intersection of Fairview Avenue North and Mercer Street, according to Seattle Fire Department.Hours later officials announced that three men and a woman died — two were in the crane and two were in separate vehicles, said Lance Garland, a Seattle firefighter and their spokesman.Three people — a 28-year-old man, 25-year-old woman and a 4-month-old baby — were transferred to a nearby hospital with non-life threatening injuries.The mother and her baby have been discharged, while the man remains at Harborview Hospital in satisfactory condition.At the time, the crane was being dismantled on top of two technology buildings — one belonging to Google — that are near completion, said Mike McQuaid, transportation chair of the South Lake Union Community Council.The portion of the crane where the operator sits or works within toppled.Washington Gov. Jay Inslee offered “deepest condolences to the family and friends” of the victims and “a full and speedy recovery” for the injured.Traffic will be rerouted until approximately Sunday evening, police officials said.Construction company GLY Construction said in a statement that it is “deeply saddened and heartbroken” by the accident that happened at its job site.“Our sympathy and deepest condolences go out to the families, friends and colleagues of those who were killed in this tragic accident,” the statement read. “We are hopeful for those who have been injured and wish that they return to full health as quickly as possible.”The company and its sub-contractors are are investigating the incident as well as “cooperating fully” with authorities in their investigation, according to the statement.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
