Photo: Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal] Three indigenous Anglican priests were ordained as bishops in Argentina last week, becoming the latest of a very small number of indigenous Anglicans ever to have become bishops in the province of South America.The Rev. Cristiano Rojas, the Rev. Mateo Alto and the Rev. Urbano Duarte were consecrated as suffragan bishops of the Diocese of North Argentina on June 5. As suffragan bishops, the three will assist the current diocesan bishop of North Argentina, Bishop Nicholas Drayson.The ceremony, held in El Portillo, a small, mostly indigenous town in Argentina’s Chaco region, was attended by more than 1,000 people, Bishop Michael Pollesel, of the Diocese of Uruguay, told the Anglican Journal.“The town’s population swelled, as people made their way there travelling on a dirt road for some two hours or more,” said Pollesel, who took part in the consecration. “The Indigenous people see these ordinations as a recognition of the importance of Anglican ministry and presence among their peoples.”There are now, Pollesel says, some 140 Anglican churches in the diocese that are attended mostly by indigenous people. It is mostly because of these churches, he says, that North Argentina has far more churches than any other Anglican diocese in the province. Pollesel was elected bishop of Uruguay in 2011, after having served as general secretary of the Anglican Church of Canada.The diocese of North Argentina belongs to the Anglican province of South America (formerly known as the Southern Cone), which includes dioceses in Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Paraguay, Peru and Uruguay.The three new bishops belong to the Wichi and the Toma, two peoples native to the region.The event, Pollesel says, took about four hours, and featured four languages – Spanish and three indigenous languages, with music provided by guitars, an accordion and an electric organ. Most people stood for the whole service, he says, since there weren’t enough chairs for the throngs of people who showed up.It took place a half-century after the first ordination of indigenous Anglicans in Argentina, Drayson says. Until the mid-1960s, bishops in Buenos Aires refused to ordain indigenous spiritual leaders because they “did not consider they would be able to function outside their context,” he says.This changed when Cyril Tucker became Bishop of Argentina in 1965. Confronted with this situation, Tucker is said to have responded, “Find me a man who can raise his own people spiritually and I will ordain him,” Drayson says. The following year, seven indigenous candidates were ordained as priests in the diocese. In 1975, an indigenous priest, the Rev. Mario Mariño, was ordained suffragan bishop of North Argentina, and served in the position until his death in 2002.Within the Anglican province of South America, Drayson says, there has also been one indigenous bishop in Chile and [three] in Peru.

Corn Left to Plant? Numbers Say You Should Opt Out

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News Corn Left to Plant? Numbers Say You Should Opt Out The crop insurance final planting date for corn was Friday, June 5, and the numbers say that those with corn yet to plant should just opt out.For higher coverage levels of crop insurance, the University of Illinois farmdoc team says it is difficult to build situations in which planting corn has higher expected returns than taking prevent plant. This is directly related to COVID-19 says Professor Gary Schnitkey and, unlike last year where there was more profit in planting corn, that’s not the case this year.“Our parameters are 200 APH yield and 80 to 85 percent coverage level but those don’t matter much in the decision. If you get to June 5 and haven’t planted corn and can take a prevent plant payment, then you probably should.”That’s the case all the way down to 70 percent RP crop insurance. By the numbers Schnitkey says taking prevent plant on corn is the right decision even if herbicide and nitrogen have been applied and you throw in a fairly stout MFP payment.“On an 85 percent coverage level 200 APH yield, you are looking at returns from prevent plant exceeding that from planting corn by over $150 per acre. So, your MFP payment would have to be over $150 per acre, which probably isn’t likely. So, again, it is just the prices that we are looking at that cause prevent plant to look much more attractive this year than last year.”That cash price in Schnitkey’s corn budget is $3.10 a bushel. Again, at that price, even those that have applied herbicide and nitrogen are better off taking prevent plant and that remains the case if you throw in a hefty MFP payment.

Reporters Without Borders condemns intimidation and boycott of La Provence by mayor of Orange

first_img to go further Organisation FranceEurope – Central Asia News FranceEurope – Central Asia RSF_en Follow the news on France Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU News News Receive email alerts During the spring of 2003, Christine Blanc and Stéphanie Esposito, from La Provence, were personally singled out several times, including by the mayor himself. “As long as these two are there we cannot work,” town hall spokesman André-Yves Beck told Reporters Without Borders. “We don’t want them to lick our boots, but we want to be treated fairly and for them to stop spitting in our faces. It is our right not to give information,” he said.For editor René Gérard, who backs the two journalists it is a case of “intimidation”.Relations between the mayor and the local editorial team of La Provence have deteriorated constantly since 2002. The municipal council accuses La Provence of supporting the opposition and covering municipal affairs partially and inaccurately.On their side, the journalists say they are victims of a downright boycott and complain that they get no information from the registry office and do not receive town hall photos or press statements. In Spring 2003, the council openly boasted of its stance by putting up a board in front of its offices reading “Why you no longer find news about the town of Orange in La Provence”, and in several articles in the municipal journal like “Provprop” or Disinfoprov?

Reporters Without Borders called on the mayor to halt intimidation and a boycott run for several months against journalists on La Provence. The 6 May march was led by the FN town mayor Jacques Bompard and his wife Marie-Claude Bompard, a departmental councillor.”Whatever differences of opinion there may be between the mayor and the daily, the journalists should be allowed access to information and be able to handle it freely, without suffering intimidation or discrimination from the local authorities,” the international press freedom organisation said.The demonstrators marched on the offices, brandishing placards reading “Provence Propaganda” and carried a banner reading, “Welcome to the house of disinformation”.They also handed out leaflets justifying the demonstration, that read: “For months La Provence has been carrying on an almost daily battle against the town of Orange and in particular its mayor, Jacques Bompard. (…) This real aversion is leading the newspaper to regularly dish up its readers with disinformation.”Christine Blanc, of La Provence’s local staff told Reporters Without Borders that the mayor’s behaviour was preventing journalists from working normally. She said, “The mayor does not tolerate us giving space to anyone who does not agree with them. In fact, they would like us to be municipal journal,” she complained.
