Photo: Hannington Sebuliba[Anglican Communion News Service] For the last week all roads in Uganda have been leading to the Namugongo Anglican site where more than 20 Anglican Christians were brutally murdered more than a century ago. Thousands of pilgrims have made the journey over hundreds of miles to reach the shrine of the Christian martyrs remembered on the anniversary today (June 3).The martyrs were killed at the order of the king of Buganda kingdom, Kabaka Mwanga. On June 3, 1876 he ordered the killing of all the newly converted Christians. The martyrs included Anglicans, Roman Catholics and Muslims. All the Christians killed had been converted a few years after the arrival of missionaries from the U.K.The Roman Catholics were the first to recognize the 22 victims as martyrs and commemorate the day on which they were killed. Three popes have visited the Roman Catholic shrine where the Christians were killed and the martyrs have now been recognized as saints.Anglicans also visit a dedicated shrine on the site and hold prayers to mark the 23 martyred for their faith. It is now an established pilgrimage place where thousands of Anglicans travel each year on June 3.The Rev. James Kato, a member of this year’s organizing committee, said, “As a sign of showing solidarity with martyrs, the pilgrims walk from their homes to the shrine established at the site where the Anglican martyrs were killed.”More than 200,000 Anglican Christians were now camping at the compound next to the shrine and many more are still on their way. “Many Christians walked from within Uganda, others have arrived from neighboring countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo and South Sudan and many more are coming,” Kato said. The biggest number will be brought in by vehicles on June 3.Security is tight at the shrine. The Roman Catholic shrine is located just under a mile away from the Anglican site and is equally packed with pilgrims. At both shrines there are pilgrims from Europe and the U.S. and organizers are expecting greater numbers this year than ever before. On Wednesday, Uganda’s president, Yoweri Museveni, visited the sites and addressed the pilgrims.

The Anatomy of Fear Please enter your name here C Bourque Please enter your comment! You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here On This Day in History: July 6th, 1957From The History ChannelThe front-page headline of the Liverpool Evening Express on July 6, 1957, read “MERSEYSIDE SIZZLES,” in reference to the heat wave then gripping not just northern England, but all of Europe. The same headline could well have been used over a story that received no coverage at all that day: The story of the first encounter between two Liverpool teenagers named John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Like the personal and professional relationship it would lead to, their historic first meeting was a highly charged combination of excitement, rivalry and mutual respect.It’s easy to assume that John and Paul would eventually have met on some other day had a mutual friend not chosen that hot and humid Saturday to make the introduction. But as much as they had in common, the two boys lived in different neighborhoods, went to different schools and were nearly two years apart in age.Only John was scheduled to perform publicly on July 6, 1957. The occasion was the annual Woolton Parish Church Garden Fete, a parade and outdoor fair at which John and his Quarry Men Skiffle Group had been invited to play. The main attractions were a dog show and a brass band, but a family connection had helped get the Quarry Men added to the bill as a nod to the hundreds of teenagers in attendance. Midway through their first set, 15-year-old Paul McCartney showed up and watched, transfixed, as John, despite his rudimentary guitar skills and his tendency to ad-lib in place of forgotten lyrics, held the crowd with charm and swagger. After the show, it was Paul’s turn to impress John.A mutual friend made the introduction in the nearby church auditorium, where John and his bandmates slouched on folding chairs and barely acknowledged the younger boy. Then Paul pulled out the guitar he was carrying on his back and began playing Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock,” then Gene Vincent’s “Be Bop A Lula,” then a medley of Little Richard numbers. As Jim O’Donnell writes in The Day John Met Paul, his book-length account of this historic moment in music history, “A young man not easily astonished, Lennon is astonished.” Paul’s musicianship far outstripped the older Lennon’s, but more than that, John recognized in Paul the same passion Paul had detected in John during his earlier onstage performance. Soon Paul was teaching a rapt John how to tune his guitar and writing out the chords and lyrics to some of the songs he’d just played.Later that evening, walking home with one of his bandmates, John announced his intentions toward their new acquaintance. Two weeks later, John Lennon invited Paul McCartney to join the Quarry Men.For more on this day in history, go here. or there is this version with no guitar on his back…“On July 6, 1957, when McCartney was fifteen, his friend Ivan Vaughan persuaded him to attend the Woolton Parish Church fête, across town in Liverpool, to watch a skiffle band led by a student from Quarry Bank High School. McCartney was riveted by the band’s sixteen-year-old leader, John Lennon, who was playing banjo chords on an incorrectly tuned guitar and making up lyrics as he went along. After the show, McCartney joined the musicians backstage, sat down at the piano, and began to show off. He played a song by Jerry Lee Lewis, then, borrowing a guitar, played Eddie Cochran’s “Twenty Flight Rock.” A few days later, McCartney learned through a mutual friend that Lennon wanted him to join his band. Lennon later admitted to the Beatles’ early biographer Hunter Davies that he had struggled with the decision. “I’d been kingpin up to then,” he said. “Now, I thought, if I take him on, what will happen?”McCartney taught Lennon how to tune a guitar and form proper chords, and after playing his first gig with the Quarry Men—a club dance—revealed that he had written a few songs. He played “I Lost My Little Girl” for Lennon, who responded by writing a song of his own.” Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.

News Related documents RWB_guidelines_exiled_journalists.pdfPDF – 967.48 KB Organisation June 18, 2009 – Updated on January 25, 2016 Reporters Without Borders publishes a first Guide for exiled journalists Reporters Without Borders today marked World Refugee Day by publishing a guide for journalists driven into exile, to provide them with information about the procedures and potential obstacles in seeking asylum. Again this year, a large number of journalists, from Sri Lanka, Mexico, Pakistan, Russia and Somalia have been fleeing their country at an average rate of six a month. Some have had to leave for ever after putting their lives in danger to provide independent news. “Until now there has been no specific information available for journalists driven into exile”, the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “The protection of refugees depends on appropriate information being available. Journalists fleeing persecution are vulnerable, often in a state of shock and utterly unequipped to deal with the steps they need to take. They are often surprised not have easier access to international protection. Lacking reliable information, some take unwise risks and fall into traps or become victims of unfair proceedings. The recent imprisonment of Mexican journalist Emilio Gutiérrez, who sought exile in the United States, should not happen again,” Reporters Without Borders said. -The publication of the guide, illustrated by exiled cartoonists, is also the occasion to remind the public of how these journalists continue the fight for free and independent news, by creating blogs, drawing cartoons, publishing articles or founding a radio or television in exile. RSF_en “These independent and committed professionals are vital witnesses for countries in which there is no free press or it is heavily repressed. Exiled media, like the Democratic Voice of Burma based in Norway, Burma’s first independent TV and radio, and the recent inauguration of an independent Eritrean radio, Radio Erena, stand in the way of attempts by the oppressors to gag the free press”, it added.Reporters Without Borders has since the beginning of 2007 helped more than 200 media workers to flee 39 countries. They suffered reprisals from governments, terrorist groups, organised crime or religious groups. This guide – which will be added to in the light of experience – covers the steps to be taken with the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and also asylum procedures within the European Union, the United States and Canada. It also provides practical advice and details of specialist organisations.Almost half of exiled journalists assisted by Reporters Without Borders spend several years in countries like Yemen, Sudan and Turkey so that they can one day stabilise their situation and resume a normal life. The luckier ones attempt to rebuild their lives in safe country where they have been able to make an asylum application. In France, they get help from the Maison des journalistes , which next Wednesday opens an exhibition entitled, “Danger! (press) cartoons.” Help by sharing this information

There is a complex and dynamic interrelationhip between hermit crabs, humans and the coastal environment. Hermit crab homes (shells) are often hard to come by, but humans are helping out by piling middens of shells and rubbish on beachers. Hermit crabs are useful to humans as fishing bait, pets and living wasted disposal systems, and so useful to other animals that they may even be hijacked.
Shift from carbon flow through the microbial loop to the viral shunt in coastal Antarctic waters during austral summer
The relative flow of carbon through the viral shunt and the microbial loop is a pivotal factor controlling the contribution of secondary production to the food web and to rates of nutrient remineralization and respiration. The current study examines the significance of these processes in the coastal waters of the Antarctic during the productive austral summer months. Throughout the study a general trend towards lower bacterioplankton and heterotrophic nanoflagellate (HNF) abundances was observed, whereas virioplankton concentration increased. A corresponding decline of HNF grazing rates and shift towards viral production, indicative of viral infection, was measured. Carbon flow mediated by HNF grazing decreased by more than half from 5.7 µg C L−1 day−1 on average in December and January to 2.4 µg C L−1 day−1 in February. Conversely, carbon flow through the viral shunt increased substantially over the study from on average 0.9 µg C L−1 day−1 in December to 7.6 µg C L−1 day−1 in February. This study shows that functioning of the coastal Antarctic microbial community varied considerably over the productive summer months. In early summer, the system favors transfer of matter and energy to higher trophic levels via the microbial loop, however towards the end of summer carbon flow is redirected towards the viral shunt, causing a switch towards more recycling and therefore increased respiration and regeneration.
