Now is the time to grieve and pastor the families in our community who are hurting and dismayed and searching for hope. Our churches in the surrounding area stand ready with pastoral care for anyone affected by this tragedy.”Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Dickinson, just north of Santa Fe, opened as a place of prayer and reflection following the shooting and will host a community-wide prayer service beginning at 6:30 p.m. local time.The 17-year-old suspect, also a Santa Fe High School student, is in custody. The attack is the deadliest since the shooting deaths of 17 students at a Parkland, Florida, high school on Feb. 14. The February attack sparked a nationwide student movement against gun violence.“Today we have experienced another event of deadly violence in a place to which we entrust our children for formation and safety,” Christ Church Cathedral Dean Barkley Thompson said in an email message. “‘How long?’ we ask. How long must we endure such events, and how often? Our excruciating lament is honest and inevitable… The answer to the lament, ‘How long?’ can be ‘No longer.’ God’s Spirit is with us, empowering us to stand for grace and peace in our world. May it be so.” Comments are closed.

The peace and prosperity brought by the end of the Angolan civil war witnessed the beginning of development and urban reconstruction. At first exclusively in Luanda, it has gradually extended to hinterland cities such as Lubango, capital of Huila district. This small town, founded in the early 20th-century, is one of the main references to Portuguese colonial urbanism in Africa. This mixed-use building is set in a consolidated area, next to the main square and surrounded by a few remaining buildings of Portuguese modernist legacy, some of which of remarkable quality, although much dilapidated. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGWith 9-storey, the building includes residential, offices and shops served by a common access and underground parking.  On the ground floor, a sheltered and cross-ventilated open gallery generates a shaded and fresh space, allowing direct access to the shop fronts, to the residential and offices lobbies, and to a small backyard coffee-shop terrace. Above ground-level, there are, respectively, 4 levels of offices, 3 levels of single-storey apartments and, in the last 2 levels, duplex units, including variants of double-height studios to 3- bedroom units. The roof terrace accommodates residents’storage rooms, laundry services and technical areas.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe construction concept is based on a principle of robustness that should enable this solid and simple building to guarantee comfort, durability and low maintenance.  The module of recessed balconies provides the natural shading resulting from its depth, in addition to an accessible and ventilated façade technical compartment.  The massiveness of the masonry walls is interrupted by the datum of concrete slabs, which function as a continuous lintel.  This tectonic expression is reinforced by the materiality of the brickwork laid in ‘soldier-and-stretcher’ courses, evocative of the rich textures and colours of African rammed earth and pottery.Save this picture!Floor Plan 4Finally, the stratification of this materiality is emphasized by the white paint on concrete lintels and bronze aluminium window frames.  Anticipating a long period until the adjacent properties are built, along with the northwest and southeast windowless facades, we have chosen to maintain the same masonry with a brickwork composition similar to the main facade.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessHouse in a Garden / RS SparchSelected ProjectsCornerstone 1-532 / Leehong Kim ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Rua 14 de Abril, Lubango, AngolaLocation to be used only as a reference.

Home Prices Moderate as Markets Stabilize

Better yet, it looks downright sustainable, if the latest Trulia Price Monitor is to be believed.According to Trulia, for the first time since July 2012, none of the 100 largest markets in May—anywhere in the United States—saw home prices rise more than 20 percent year-over-year.This is the first sign of sustainability in the housing market in years and is, according to Trulia’ chief economist, Jed Kolko, a welcome change from the hyper-rebounding that occurred in some markets—particularly in the West, where asking prices rose by as much as 30 percent from 2012 to 2013—that had several economists worried that an accelerated boom/bust cycle was brewing.”That’s a good thing,” Kolko said. “Extreme price increases create unrealistic expectations, encourage flipping, and might discourage some owners from selling if they expect big increases to continue.”While May’s asking prices rose at their slowest rate in 13 months, they still rose 8 percent, which remains well above the long-term historical norm for home-price appreciation. Furthermore, prices rose 2.4 percent quarter-over-quarter in May, Kolko said.At the same time, the number of markets with year-over-year price declines is also at a post-recession low. According to Trulia, the only metros where asking prices were down year-over-year were El Paso, Hartford, Albany, and Little Rock. This belies a healthy deceleration in booming markets, where prices had been rising unsustainably fast, Kolko said.Another encouraging sign of a good economy, according to Trulia, is the fact that rents are up nationwide, but also not by any huge margin. Nationally, rents are up 5.1 percent overall from a year ago.Apartment rents are up 5.8 percent, while and single-family rents are up 2.1 percent. As it has been in the home sales market, California’s coastal metros lead the pack in rising rent prices. Among the 25 largest rental markets, rents rose most year-over-year in San Francisco, San Diego, and Oakland.

Brundidge hosts movie night at the Bass House

I can’t say ‘thank you’ enough to Spentressia for wanting to make a difference in her hometown.”Boyd said the event was well attended and greatly appreciated.“It was also well supervised,” she said. “Brundidge Police Chief Moses Davenport was here and one of his officers.  Everything went off with ease.

Navy SEALs call Eddie Gallagher ‘toxic’ and ‘evil’ in newly released video interviews

first_imgSandy Huffaker/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — The Navy SEALs who served alongside Special Operations Chief Edward Gallagher described their platoon leader as “freaking evil” and “toxic,” according to new video recordings conducted by criminal investigators obtained by the New York Times.The recordings were part of the Navy’s investigation into Gallagher, who was accused of war crimes during a 2017 deployment to Iraq, including the murder of an Islamic State teenager. While Gallagher was acquitted of the most serious charges earlier this year, his case has repeatedly garnered the attention of President Donald Trump who in November intervened in the Navy’s own disciplinary process, allowing Gallagher to retain his Trident pin which identifies him as a member of the SEAL community.The video recordings, as well as text messages sent between the SEALs, are part of a New York Times’ documentary airing on Hulu that the Times says reveals the anguish and anger the members of SEAL Team 7 experienced when speaking about Gallagher’s actions during their deployment.“You could tell he was perfectly OK with killing anybody that was moving,” Special Operator First Class Corey Scott, a medic in the platoon, told the investigators.The members said they saw Gallagher shoot civilians and fatally stab a wounded ISIS teenager with a hunting knife. Video from a SEAL’s helmet camera, also obtained by the Times, shows the teenager laying on the ground surrounded by the SEAL team before the camera is shut off.However, during the trial, one of the three SEALs who initially said they witnessed Gallagher stab the ISIS teenager said he had in fact suffocated the captive, not Gallagher.In a phone interview with ABC News on Friday, Gallagher’s attorney said the Times chose selectively from the video recordings and text messages which in their entirety show “inconsistencies” in the SEALs’ stories and were “extremely helpful” to his defense.“They paint a false picture because a couple of individuals came together to paint a false story for their own purposes,” Timothy Parlatore, Gallagher’s attorney, said.Parlatore, who said he had access to the recordings and texts in the discovery phase of the case, said it was “irresponsible journalism” for the Times to publish parts of the recordings without the larger context of the trial, arguing that additional evidence presented in the courtroom showed some of those SEAL members did not show concern for the ISIS teenager’s fate during the incident.He also claimed that the messages lack proper context and show a level of coordination between the SEAL members against their platoon leader as the court case against Gallagher struggled.“This case is going down the toilet and very fast and these guys are trying to prop each other up so that everybody stays on the same page,” Parlatore told ABC News. “That’s the text messages that they put out.”However, the Times said the video recordings and texts did not reveal “coordinated deception” and instead “show men who were hesitant to come forward, but who urged one another to resist outside pressure and threats of violence, and to be honest.”The SEALs told investigators they tried repeatedly to report Gallagher’s behavior through the chain of command. But when no action was taken, they went to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, which is how Gallagher was ultimately charged, according to the Times.“Tell the truth, don’t lie or embellish,” one SEAL member wrote in the group text in 2017 when they first tried to report Gallagher. “That way, he can’t say that we slandered him in any way.”When others questioned what would come of reporting the platoon leader’s behavior to commanders, another seal wrote “We just need to give them the truth.”Gallagher was sentenced to four months of time served and a reduction in rank for posing with the ISIS teenager’s corpse. But Trump restored the chief’s rank to E-7 so that he could retire with full benefits.It wouldn’t be the last time the president worked to interfere on Gallagher’s behalf.The Navy then decided to convene a Trident review board to determine whether Gallagher could keep his Trident pin. While Trump initially tweeted that the Navy “will NOT be taking away” the pin, the White House ultimately told the Navy that the review board could go forward.However, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said that during this time, Navy Secretary Richard Spencer was trying to cut a backroom deal with the White House that would have allowed Gallagher to retire with the Trident. Spencer was ultimately forced to resign over his handling of the case. Meanwhile, Gallagher was allowed to retire as a Navy SEAL with his Trident pin, a directive issued by the president, Esper said.When asked for comment on the Times’ release of the video recordings and text messages, the Navy referred ABC News to a recent letter from the Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Michael Gilday.“To be clear, we must be men and women of integrity,” he said in the letter to Navy sailors on Dec. 2, just a week after Spencer’s forced resignation. “We must be honorable. We must be standard-bearers. We must be above reproach. And we must not give anyone cause to question our fundamental values. That is what sets us apart as a fighting force.”Gilday said later in the letter that “responsibility for ethical and professional behavior must be taken seriously.”“We must own it at every level,” Gilday said. “We must be protectors and exemplify our values.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
