With six services and an extended period of silence every day, it’s a life of prayer and worship, of community and of deep devotion to God.But while living in community may be central to the brothers’ vocation, building global partnerships is critical to their ministry here.For the past 10 years, Holy Cross has partnered with the Episcopal Church’s Young Adult Service Corps program. The young missionaries, age 18-30, live at the monastery and assist at the affiliated Holy Cross School, founded by the brothers to provide education to the children of local farm workers.Another fruit of the global partnerships is the annual Reading Camp, a ministry begun in the Diocese of Lexington and replicated in Grahamstown to help children who are struggling to read and write.The Mariya uMama weThemba Monastery, as it is known locally, is one of four communities throughout the world that form the Order of the Holy Cross. The others are Holy Cross Monastery in West Park, New York; Mount Calvary Retreat House & Monastery in Santa Barbara, California; and Holy Cross Priory in Toronto, Canada.Founded in 1884 by Episcopal priest the Rev. James Huntington. The order lives by the rule of St. Benedict, which says: “All guests who present themselves are to be welcomed as Christ.” As such, hospitality is a key part of community life and the brothers routinely host guests for retreats.— Matthew Davies is an editor/reporter of the Episcopal News Service.

157 Housing Units in Nanterre / Atelier du Pont

The challenge of this project in Nanterre is to create a piece of a city that manages to connect the historic downtown, the surrounding city houses, and the recent, very dense construction projects in the new Sainte-Geneviève mixed development area. As a hybrid between urban development and architecture, its layout redevelops the connections between seemingly dissimilar urban textures, stitching the disparate pieces of the same city together.Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleWeaving a new urban fabric, the contrasting and assertive heights enables the insertion of these 157 housing units into this singular context, all the while ensuring a certain level of density and a high quality of usage. The medium-sized collective housing buildings look out onto broadly scaled public spaces while smaller collective buildings and stacked houses, which have private gardens or terraces, are positioned along the secondary roadways. The progressive variation of forms and types responds to the challenge of urban and social recomposition, continuity, and diversity.Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleA major component of the neighborhood is the new public pathway that cuts across the entire project. The individual access points to the housing units are organized into transversal alleys that empty out onto this pedestrian space, providing a sense of porousness and also opening views onto landscaped areas within the block. This mechanism creates adept and smooth transitions between public and private space that reinvent what it feels like to come home, and it also generates bonds between inhabitants who use the open spaces in the middle of the block. This urban alternative is situated between the collective and the individual within this complex urban environment.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe formal and typological diversity mirrors a sense of social diversity (54 social housing units and 103 private units) and as well as to the program (businesses spaces border the main avenue).Save this picture!© Frédéric DelangleProject gallerySee allShow lessBaan Nong Bua School / Junsekino Architect And DesignSelected ProjectsFab-Union Space On The West Bund / Archi-Union ArchitectsSelected ProjectsProject locationAddress:Nanterre, FranceLocation to be used only as a reference.

UOI & Ors, it was pointed out that in some cases doctors and health workers who are quarantined, their period of quarantine is being treated as on leave. The matter has since been considered by this Ministry in consultation with the DoPT and it has decided that the quarantine period of doctors and health workers needs to be treated as “on duty”. All concerned may accordingly be directed to ensure that quarantine period of Doctors and health workers for their duties related to COVID19 shall be treated as “on duty” only” – read the affidavit..This happened after Senior Advocate KV Vishwanathan in an IA filed by United Residents and Doctors Association stated in court that doctors in quarantine were not being paid their dues.#COVID19India #CovidWarriors #Doctors— Live Law (@LiveLawIndia) August 10, 2020On July 31, the Centre had informed Supreme Court that Delhi, Punjab, Tripura, Karnataka & Maharashtra – have not made timely payment of salaries to healthcare workers despite the Centre’ Notification under National Disaster Management Act which lays down strict penal action for non-payment.The State of Tripura today also informed the Supreme Court that the salaries of health workers were being paid on time. To this a Justice Bhushan-led bench said, “Good” & adjourned the case to next week.The bench was hearing an IA filed on behalf by United Residents and Doctors Association in a plea filed by Udaipur-based Doctor Arushi Jain seeking suitable accommodation and quarantine facilities for medical workers who are involved in treating of COVID-19 patients.Senior Advocate KV Vishwanathan had informed the Court during the last hearing that doctors in quarantine were not being paid their dues on time & the Court had asked the Centre to look into this issue.On July 31, a bench of Justices Ashok Bhushan, MR Shah & R. Subhash Reddy had told the Centre to do the needful so as to ensure that salaries to frontline healthcare workers battling Covid19 are effectuated timely.In light of this, the Ministry of Health & Family welfare also put on record an affidavit stating that after consulting with the Department of Personnel & Training, it has decided that the quarantine period of doctors and healthcare workers needs to be treated as on duty.On June 17, Supreme Court had directed the Centre to pass appropriate directions under the Disaster Management Act to the Chief Secretaries of all States/Union Territories to ensure that directions for payment of salaries to doctors and health workers are complied with. It was listed today to take stock of progress made by states in this regard.Senior Advocate KV Vishwanathan had urged the Court to pass directions to ensure accountability from the State Governments in the matter of payment of salaries to doctors and healthcare workers.On June 12, based on the submission of Senior Advocate KV Vishwanathan regarding acquisition of premises in terms of the Disaster Management Act, 2005, for the setting up of proper accommodation, the bench directed the petitioners to hand over their suggestions/concerns to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.Further to this, the top court had slammed the government for adopting a lackadaisical approach towards providing accommodation facilities to doctors and health workers at the frontline of Coronavirus crisis. The court also took note of the denial and withholding of their remuneration, directing the Petitioner to convey their suggestions/concerns to the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare. In her PIL, Dr. Jain had drawn the attention of the Court towards certain disturbing news articles coming from all across the country regarding the “harsh, deplorable and hard living conditions of doctors, nurses and support staff who are in the forefront for treating the patients suffering from Covid-19.”United Residents and Doctors Association was represented by Senior Advocate Mr. KV Viswanathan along with Advocates Ms. Mithu Jain, Mr. Mohit Paul and Mr. Arnav Vidyarthi.Click Here To Read Centre’s OrderClick Here To Read 2nd Affidavit Filed by CentreNext Storylast_img read more

It performs assessment in seven areas of computing: basic concepts of IT;using the computing and managing files; word processing; spreadsheets;databases; presentations; and the internet and e-mail. “Net Assess can be used as a training needs analysis tool enabling theuser to pinpoint areas of strength, as well as weaker areas where IT skilllevels need to be developed. Users can then plan their study programme,ensuring they are concentrating on topics that need the most work,” saidElectric Paper’s Ingrid O’Sullivan. “It can also identify the effectivenessof training carried out and evaluate return on investment.” The assessments consist of a random selection of questions which theadministrator can vary. If the user needs to be assessed more than once,different questions can be set.
