So good to know! I salute this great work! I also was surprised to see that there was a city named Haut-Limbé in Haiti, given that there is a city named Limbe also in Cameroon (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limbe,_Cameroon).

Yanick Lahens est la première personnalité à occuper cette chaire créée en partenariat avec l’Agence universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF). Le Collège de France et l’AUF entendent ainsi illustrer la diversité et la richesse des mondes francophones en donnant une tribune aux chercheurs des pays ayant le français en partage. Créée pour trois ans, cette chaire accueillera chaque année une grande voix de la francophonie issue de différents domaines des lettres, des arts et des sciences.

La langue restant le lien premier de cet espace francophone, c’est une grande figure de la littérature haïtienne, prix Femina 2014 pour Bain de lune (Sabine Wespieser éditeur), qui a été invitée à inaugurer cette chaire. « Une personnalité remarquable de la littérature et de la culture en langue française », selon le Pr Antoine Compagnon, titulaire de la chaire Littérature française moderne et contemporaine : histoire, critique, théorie.
 
« Avec la création de cette chaire, le Collège de France souhaite donner une tribune et un nouvel espace d’enseignement et de recherche aux intellectuels et scientifiques majeurs des pays francophones. Il s’agit de faire entendre les voix riches et multiples qui œuvrent dans ces pays et à travers la langue française au développement de la science et de la pensée. Il s’agit de développer l’idée d’un espace francophone structuré et structurant dans le paysage international de la recherche et du débat d’idées », note le Pr Alain Prochiantz, Administrateur du Collège de France, titulaire de la chaire Processus morphogénétiques.
 
« La chaire Mondes francophones permettra de montrer toute la pluralité, la diversité et la richesse de l’espace francophone. En nous associant au Collège de France pour la création de cette chaire, nous avons voulu, ensemble, mettre la recherche au service de cette mission en nous appuyant à la fois sur le prestige de cette institution, notre réseau international de premier plan et nos expertises respectives. Yanick Lahens saura jouer à n’en point douter son rôle de première ambassadrice de cette chaire, qu’elle animera avec talent et enthousiasme », souligne Jean-Paul de Gaudemar, Recteur de l’AUF

Littérature haïtienne : urgence(s) d’écrire, rêve(s) d’habiter


Pour l'occasion, Yanick Lahens signe un texte, Littérature haïtienne : urgence(s) d’écrire, rêve(s) d’habiter, reproduit ci-dessous dans son intégralité.

Aujourd’hui les recherches sur la formation de la modernité, de l’Empire et de ses projets nationaux ne peuvent être isolées de celles portant sur le monde colonial. Haïti est à la fois un produit et une matrice de ces croisements et sa littérature en est une des premières métaphorisations. Il est indispensable de comprendre à partir de la dynamique de ces croisements comment Haïti, isolée pendant de longues décennies a, depuis le début du XIXe siècle, délocalisé la culture et la langue de France et aménagé leur acclimatation à sa façon. 

La révolte victorieuse des esclaves de Saint-Domingue en 1804 face à l’armée napoléonienne est un de ces savoirs essentiels à exhumer. Ce mouvement insurrectionnel était un impensé et a opéré un saut qualitatif inédit. Si la révolution américaine représente un incontestable progrès des Lumières parce qu’elle fait avancer les libertés individuelles, la pratique de l’esclavage lui survivra près d’un siècle plus tard. Si la Révolution française fait avancer les droits de l’homme, la France maintient l’esclavage dans certaines contrées et renforce le processus de colonisation dans d’autres.

La révolution haïtienne, elle, outrepasse le projet des Lumières en faisant avancer de manière radicale la question de l’égalité, mettant ainsi en acte une autre intelligibilité du monde. Les écrivains et écrivaines d’Haïti, de la fin du XVIIIe siècle à nos jours, ont toujours tenté de formuler à la fois la mise en acte de cette nouvelle intelligibilité et ce que seule la littérature peut dire au monde quand les autres significations butent. 

Haïti est le premier pays de ce Sud fabriqué par cette modernité économique et politique née des Lumières et elle est le moule dans lequel seront coulées les relations qui s’instaureront entre le Nord et le Sud jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Du Sud elle a connu avant les autres tous les avatars qu’engendreront ces relations, dont la reproduction après l’indépendance d’une colonisation interne. 

Jamais l’urgence n’a donc desserré son étau sur les déportés que nous fûmes et toujours les écrivains et écrivaines ont poursuivi un rêve d’habiter le monde « de plein jour et de plain-pied ». 

Le monde francophone est un et divisible. Le Collège de France l’a bien compris en faisant choix de cet intitulé Mondes francophones, qui scelle à la fois l’unité en tant que ce qui traverse ces mondes et la pluralité que constitue la dynamique propre à chacun de ces espaces. Faire advenir les mondes francophones exigera de passer par le partage des savoirs historiques et culturels de ces mondes et par l’écoute de nouvelles narrations qui rendront plus audibles les altérités qui les constituent.

Parce que, bien que les espaces francophones et particulièrement Haïti participent d’une mémoire commune, leurs savoirs historiques et culturels, ne sont encore ni reconnus ni admis à part entière. La littérature haïtienne est une des expressions esthétisées de ces savoirs historiques et culturels. La leçon inaugurale comme les enseignements qui suivront ne sauraient faire l’économie de cette clarification liminaire. 

Dire Haïti et sa littérature autrement à travers l’ensemble des cours, c’est se demander quel éclairage peut apporter aujourd’hui au monde francophone sinon au monde tout court l’expérience haïtienne ? Comment dans l’impasse qui suit son indépendance, des hommes et des femmes dépossédés, déplacés, déstabilisés linguistiquement créent une civilisation dont la littérature sera un élément majeur ?

Comment des écrivains et écrivaines n’ont pas cessé de dire ou d’écrire un rêve d’habiter, démontrant par là même que la littérature commence souvent là où la parole devient impossible. Là où le monde est si ébranlé qu’il faut traverser le langage pour lui trouver des éclats de sens. 

À partir de 1804, ceux et celles qui n’ont d’autre choix que d’habiter ces 27.750 km2, à peine plus étendus que certains départements de l’Hexagone, sont sommés de s’inventer et d’inventer dans ce lieu non connu, non imaginé, non désiré. À cette sommation les écrivains répondront durant deux siècles en nourrissant un rêve d’habiter un corps qui ne soit plus celui du migrant nu, selon la belle formule de Glissant, un lieu et un temps fondateurs, d’habiter l’écriture comme lieu premier, originel, un lieu aussi non de simple enracinement, mais de possible séjour et enfin un lieu au-delà de l’ethnie ou de la classe, aussi vaste que le silence ou l’inconnu. 

Et aujourd’hui que la littérature haïtienne s’écrit dans trois langues autres que le français, elle atteste que les langues sont appelées à cohabiter, qu’elles ne sauraient avoir qu’un unique drapeau ou qu’une seule patrie et préfigure une culture du XXIe siècle en train de se faire. 

Étudier la littérature haïtienne à la lumière de son histoire permet de donner au qualificatif francophone une signification hors de tout eurocentrisme. Une signification qui sied à notre temps, la seule susceptible de lui assurer un avenir. 
          See an Octopus Change Color as It Sleeps, Perchance Dreams      Cache   Translate Page      
article-image

Though the octopus in the video below may appear deep in sleep, its skin is wide awake. In a matter of seconds, it pulses from coconut white to muted gray to speckled brown, all while the cephalopod clings to a rock, its eyes shut tight. LiveScience recently shared this dramatic video, originally taken by Rachel Otey in 2017, of a Caribbean two-spot octopus slumbering in a tank in the Butterfly Pavilion, a nonprofit invertebrate zoo in Colorado. The cephalopods are widely admired these days for their intelligence, but is this one … dreaming?

A conscious octopus changes its color and patterning on a dime to fool prey or escape danger. According to Jennifer Mather, a psychologist at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada, the color changes originate from a spontaneous, unconscious firing in the octopus’s optic lobe. A 2011 study suggests that many sleeping octopuses typically display a “half-and-half” skin pattern, with light areas and dark splotches, regardless of the color of their environment. While this seems like it could betray the animal’s presence in its stomping grounds off the coast of Haiti, Mather says wild octopuses keep themselves safe by sleeping in hidden dens.

According to Mather, one of the theories behind sleep is for an organism to rehearse and solidify traces in the brain from experiences of the previous day. Octopus brains do the same kind of thing. “If this central experience is ‘dreaming,’ and our dreaming is often linked to what has happened before, then octopuses might dream,” she says.

The only cephalopod with a proven penchant for dreaming is probably the cutest. A 2012 study led by Marcos G. Frank, now a neuroscientist at Washington State University Health Sciences Spokane, discovered that sleeping cuttlefish demonstrate a form of rapid eye movement (REM), the same stage of sleep that gives us our dreams, distinguished by the spontaneous activation of brain cells, going off like fireflies in a forest. For a cephalopod, this manifests in frantic eye movements under closed lids (octopuses: they’re just like us) or erratic shifts in skin coloration (or not). In Frank’s study, the sleeping cuttlefish’s chromatophores recombined into recognizable patterns, just like ones they displayed while awake. He believes this might be analogous to the weirdly familiar patchwork of human dreams. “This video is the best evidence I have ever seen that this particular cephalopod has a sleep-state similar to what we saw in cuttlefish,” Frank says of the Caribbean two-spot octopus.

While Otey’s video may be strong evidence, REM sleep hasn’t been confirmed in octopuses. That would require a neurobiological investigation in which scientists measure the electrical activity in a snoozing cephalopod. But if octopuses do indeed dream, we hope it’s of electric-green sea sheep.

          U.S. Army captain, brothers, a law student, international aid workers among the 157 killed in an Ethiopian Airlines crash      Cache   Translate Page      

Katelyn Parra Photography(NEW YORK) --  Making the world a "better place" was how heartbroken family members remembers loved once who were among the 157 people aboard the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed just minutes after takeoff on Sunday morning.

No one survived the horrific crash that claimed the lives of a decorated U.S. Army captain, brothers on vacation, a law school student and dozens of international aid workers.

Thirty-five countries from all over the world lost citizens in the deadly incident — 32 Kenyans were the majority of lives lost.

At least eight U.S. citizens were among the victims. The U.S. Embassy in Ethiopia and the U.S. Department of State haven't released their identities, but ABC News has confirmed the names of four.

Antoine Lewis, 39, of Matteson, Illinois, was a U.S. Army captain stationed in Ottawa, Canada, who served in Afghanistan. He was on vacation in Ethiopia doing Christian missionary work, according to his parents. They said Lewis equally valued the country he fought for and the home of his ancestors.

"That’s what he died doing," his mother, Antoinette Lewis, told ABC Chicago station WLS-TV in a recent interview. "His passion was just to make a better world, make a better place, both here and our mother country."

Lewis leaves behind a wife and a 15-year-old son.

"I’m still in disbelief," his wife said in a statement obtained by ABC News. "I feel it's a dream [I'm still] awaiting his call to tell me he has safely touched down."

"Antoine was so loving," she added. "He was always interested in learning new things, forever on a journey becoming a better version of himself each day. He was so smart and just wanted to share his wealth of knowledge with those who’d listen."

Ike and Susan Riffel of Redding, California, lost their only children in the crash, Bennett and Melvin Riffel. The brothers were on vacation traveling to a few different countries as part of an adventure ahead of the birth of Melvin's first child, according to the family.

Melvin and his wife, Britney, were expecting a baby girl in May.

"We appreciate the outpouring of love and support from the community," a spokesperson for the Riffel family told ABC Redding affiliate KRCR in a statement. "We ask for continued prayers."

IQAir, a Switzerland-based company that specializes in improving indoor air quality, confirmed that one of its employees, Matt Vecere, was aboard the doomed flight. Vecere grew up in Sea Isle City, New Jersey, and later moved to California.

"Matt was an amazing writer, an avid surfer, and a truly selfless person," IQAir said in a statement. "He was most at home helping others, as evidenced by his dedication to the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake in 2010."

"We will miss his laugh, his wit, his sense of humor, but most of all, the kinship and friendship that he brought to everything he did," the company added.

Ethiopian Airlines identified the pilot of the ill-fated plane as Yared Mulugeta Gatechew, who had more than 8,000 flight hours. The co-pilot was Ahmed Nur Mohammod Nur, who had over 200 flight hours.

The United Nations said at least 21 of its employees were among those killed in Sunday's crash.

The staffers hailed from around the globe and worked for various U.N. agencies, which regularly made trips to Kenya by way of Ethiopia to visit Africa's United Nations Office headquarters, located in Nairobi. Many were traveling to attend a five-day assembly of the United Nations Environment Programme.

The World Food Programme (WFP), the food-assistance branch of the United Nations, released the names of seven team members who died: Ekta Adhikari, 26, of Nepa; Maria Pilar Buzzetti, 30, of Italy; Virginia Chimenti, 26, of Italy; Harina Hafitz, 59, of Indonesia; Zhen-Zhen Huang, 46, of China; Michael Ryan, 39, of Ireland; and Djordje Vdovic, 53, of Serbia.

"As we mourn, let us reflect that each of these WFP colleagues were willing to travel and work far from their homes and loved ones to help make the world a better place to live," the WFP's Executive Director David Beasley said in a statement. "That was their calling, as it is for the rest of the WFP family."

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees named three colleagues who also died: Nadia Ali, 40, of Sudan; Jessica Hyba, 43, of Canada; and Jackson Musoni, 31, of Rwanda.

"We’ve been struck by sudden and terrible loss," U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees, Filippo Grandi, said in a statement. "We are doing everything we can to help Nadia’s, Jessica’s and Jackson’s families at this most difficult and painful time."

The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) said it lost a program officer in the gender and safeguards unit, Victor Shangai Tsang, of Hong Kong, China.

"Victor took up this position with vigor and enthusiasm, striving to make our projects fully gender-sensitive," UNEP said in a statement. "His work defined him as an individual, and he, in turn, helped define our own work."

Victor leaves behind his pregnant wife and son.

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations confirmed it lost fisheries officer Joanna Toole, who was "passionate about making the world a better place."

Another victim in Sunday's plane crash was Max Thabiso Edkins, a 35-year-old dual-national of Germany and South Africa. He worked as a communications officer for the World Bank's Connect4Climate program.

"We were devastated to learn that we lost a cherished colleague in the plane crash in Ethiopia," the World Bank Group's interim president, Kristalina Georgieva, said in a statement. "Max was deeply committed to the fight against climate change and brought tremendous creativity, energy and passion to his work. Our deepest sympathies go to his family and loved ones, and to those of the other victims of this tragedy."

Cedric Asiavugwa, a third-year law student at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C, was traveling to his native Kenya to attend the funeral of his fiance's mother, according to a press release from the school.

Born and raised in Mombasa, Kenya, Asiavugwa's work on social justice issues led him from his native country to Uganda, Tanzania and Zimbabwe, before coming to Georgetown University Law Center. The 32-year-old planned to return home to Kenya after graduating to continue serving refugees and other marginalized groups.

"With his passing, the Georgetown family has lost a stellar student, a great friend to many, and a dedicated champion for social justice across East Africa and the world," the law school said in a statement.

Conheça a maior produção de arroz agroecológico da América Latina, ligada ao MST

Produção do alimento acontece há 20 anos em vários assentamentos da Reforma Agrária no Rio Grande do Sul

Após uma década produzindo arroz orgânico, José Carlos de Almeida, morador do Assentamento Santa Rita de Cassia II, em Nova Santa Rita, região metropolitana de Porto Alegre, se orgulha das conquistas da luta coletiva das famílias do MST, o Movimento dos Trabalhadores Rurais Sem Terra. “Através da produção agroecológica, somos reconhecidos, respeitados e temos força. Hoje somos os maiores produtores de arroz orgânico da América Latina”, destaca. A liderança é confirmada pelo Irga, o Instituto Riograndense de Arroz. 
A primeira experiência do MST na produção de arroz de base agroecológica ocorreu há 20 anos, em pequenas áreas no entorno da capital gaúcha e de forma cooperada. As famílias se organizaram inicialmente por meio da Cooperativa dos Trabalhadores Assentados da Região de Porto Alegre (Cootap), no Assentamento Integração Gaúcha, de Eldorado do Sul; da Cooperativa de Produção Agropecuária dos Assentados de Tapes (Coopat), no Assentamento Lagoa do Junco, em Tapes; e da Cooperativa de Produção Agropecuária Nova Santa Rita (Coopan), no Assentamento Capela, em Nova Santa Rita
O assentado Emerson Giacomelli explica que, ao contrapor o modelo do agronegócio e apostar em novo jeito de produzir, com respeito à vida, aos ciclos da natureza e ao meio ambiente, os agricultores enfrentaram então uma série de dificuldades. “Não conseguíamos nenhuma assistência técnica, nenhum incentivo ou apoio, nenhuma linha de crédito”, recorda.
Aposta no alimento sem veneno
No entanto, a produção de arroz em áreas de reforma agrária começou de forma convencional. As famílias, através da Cootap, tinham acesso a máquinas agrícolas e assistência técnica para organizar a lavoura. Hoje, a cooperativa regional atua na linha de frente da cadeia produtiva de arroz agroecológico, e organiza há 16 anos consecutivos eventos para celebrar a colheita.
Giacomelli enumera alguns motivos que levaram os camponeses à transição de cultura, da convencional à ecológica. Entre eles, a profunda crise econômica do setor orizícola no final dos anos 90, o surgimento de inúmeros problemas de saúde entre os assentados, a poluição nos assentamentos, o manejo inadequado de recursos naturais devido ao uso abusivo de agrotóxicos e a busca de autonomia no plantio, beneficiamento e comercialização.
Celso Alves Silva, coordenador do setor de grãos da Cootap, reforça que a decisão foi técnica e política. “O MST, que durante sua trajetória amadureceu e abraçou a bandeira da conquista da terra, de produção de alimentos saudáveis, distribuição de renda, integração social e econômica entre as famílias assentadas, indicava que era possível produzir alimentos sem veneno em escala e preservando os recursos naturais”, acrescenta.
Treze municípios participam da produção
O debate sobre a construção de uma nova sociedade e a conscientização sobre os impactos dos modelos de agricultura na saúde e no meio ambiente fizeram com que centenas de outras famílias de assentados, motivadas pelas experiências da Cootap, Coopan e Coopat, começassem a produzir arroz agroecológico. O processo se fortaleceu por meio de intercâmbios e estudos sobre rizipiscicultura – mescla de lavoura de arroz com criação de peixes – arroz pré-germinado, secagem, armazenagem, beneficiamento, processamento e formas de comercialização. 
Por meio da Coopan, MST faz o beneficiamento do arroz orgânico
Atualmente, há 363 famílias do MST produzindo arroz ecológico em 15 assentamentos e 13 municípios – Charqueadas, Capela de Santana, Eldorado do Sul, São Jerônimo, Canguçu, Manoel Viana, Tapes, Arambaré, Nova Santa Rita, Viamão, Capivari do Sul, Guaíba e Santa Margarida do Sul. A área plantada na safra 2018-2019 é de 3.433 hectares, e a estimativa de colheita é de aproximadamente 16 mil toneladas.
Os assentados preparam o solo e semeiam o arroz em sistema pré-germinado. Um processo totalmente livre de agrotóxicos. Quando se faz necessário o controle de pragas, utilizam biofertilizantes, repelentes naturais ou insumos permitidos pela legislação dos orgânicos. A água também ajuda a combater inços e plantas indesejadas. Já o melhoramento do solo é feito com incorporação de matéria orgânica, como esterco de animais e palha de arroz, uso de calcário, pó-de-rocha e fosfato natural.
Alternativa ao agronegócio 
Os produtores se organizam no Grupo Gestor do Arroz Agroecológico desde 2002. Ele foi constituído a partir da união de famílias de vários assentamentos que passaram a compartilhar experiências e a aperfeiçoar suas visões enquanto coletivo. Isso resultou em avanços na cadeia produtiva.
De acordo com Giacomelli, a organização coletiva busca consolidar alternativas ao agronegócio, pois estabelece relações de respeito e integração entre os seres humanos e os recursos naturais. “Nossa produção é feita com técnicas que estimulam a fertilidade e a produção de alimentos saudáveis, e gera mais qualidade de vida aos produtores e consumidores, além de renda às famílias assentadas”, argumenta.
Certificação garante a qualidade
O MST possui unidades próprias de agroindústria, além de Unidade de Beneficiamento de Sementes (UBS) 
Hoje, todo o processo produtivo, industrial e comercial do arroz orgânico é coordenado pela Cootap, que detém a marca comercial Terra Livre. Ela ajuda a organizar a produção das famílias vinculadas ao Grupo Gestor do Arroz Agroecológico, através de associações, grupos informais e cooperativas – Coopan, Coopat, Cooperativa de Produção Agropecuária de Charqueadas (Copac) e Cooperativa dos Produtores Orgânicos da Reforma Agrária de Viamão (Coperav).
O MST possui unidades próprias de agroindústria para recebimento, secagem, armazenagem e embalagem de arroz, além de Unidade de Beneficiamento de Sementes (UBS). As sementes são produzidas em sete assentamentos nos municípios de Eldorado do Sul, Viamão, Nova Santa Rita, Tapes e Guaíba.
O arroz orgânico é certificado desde 2004, em todas as etapas da produção, com base em normas nacionais e internacionais, por meio da certificação participativa (OPAC – Coceargs) e de auditoria (IMO – Ceres).
Segundo o assentado Cleomar Pietroski, responsável pelo setor de certificação da Cooperativa Central dos Assentamentos do RS (Coceargs), o arroz é certificado a partir de 12 meses de manejo orgânico na unidade de produção. “Além de agregar valor, a certificação dá a garantia de procedência e de qualidade do produto aos consumidores”, argumenta.
Mentes abertas
O Grupo Gestor do Arroz Agroecológico elegeu como metas a inserção de novas famílias do MST na cadeia produtiva, a expansão da área plantada, a consolidação de uma nova Unidade Básica de Sementes e a construção de uma indústria de arroz parboilizado.
Também quer garantir toda a infraestrutura necessária para viabilizar a produção aos assentados e às cooperativas, além de formar técnica e profissionalmente jovens para que deem continuidade ao cultivo de arroz orgânico.
Giacomelli afirma que a formação política e ideológica também é prioridade aos Sem Terra. “Não existe agricultor orgânico que não tenha uma cabeça aberta, uma cabeça que tenha política, que entenda de sociedade, que saiba de conjuntura e do novo momento. Isso é muito importante para nós”, finaliza.
Exportando arroz para o mundo
A primeira experiência de exportação ocorreu em 2008, para os Estados Unidos 
A maior parte do arroz orgânico produzido pelo MST é destinada ao Programa de Aquisição de Alimentos (PAA) e ao Programa Nacional de Alimentação Escolar (Pnae). Assim, além de abastecer o Rio Grande do Sul, o alimento chega a São Paulo, Minas Gerais e Paraná. Na capital paulista, o MST deve entregar a escolas públicas cerca de dois milhões de quilos de arroz em 2019.
O grão também pode ser adquirido em mais de 40 feiras ecológicas da região metropolitana de Porto Alegre, no Mercado Público da capital, na Feira Latino-Americana da Economia Solidária, em Santa Maria; na Exposição Internacional de Animais, Máquinas, Implementos e Produtos Agropecuários (Expointer), em Esteio; e na Feira Nacional da Reforma Agrária, em São Paulo.
Além de abastecer o mercado interno, o MST exporta arroz orgânico. A primeira experiência ocorreu em 2008, para os Estados Unidos. Depois, o grão foi para a União Europeia, Portugal, Holanda, Alemanha, Espanha e Venezuela, tendo como foco o comércio justo e solidário. Atualmente, há busca de novos mercados na Grécia, Portugal, Espanha, Holanda, Argentina, Emirados Árabes, China, Haiti, Jamaica, Costa Rica, Itália, Peru, entre outros países.

Silicon Valley startup and nonprofit New Story and Austin-based construction technology company Icon are taking on new-home construction and affordability by way of 3D printing.

Silicon Valley startup and nonprofit New Story and Austin-based construction technology company Icon are taking on new-home construction and affordability by way of 3D printing.

Icon's Vulcan II 3D printer can print a small home's frame in less than 24 hours, and later this year, it will print a neighborhood of more than 50 homes in a semi-rural Latin American community for families who earn less than $200 a month. According to Fast Company's reporting, Vulcan II builds walls and floors with layers of concrete in a day, with conventional roof, windows, and utilities to be completed the next day. 

In Haiti, where progress to rebuild after the 2010 earthquake was painfully slow, the nonprofit developed a new process to build more efficiently. But it realized that the pace of traditional construction would always hamper its ability to address the global need for better housing. After analyzing various options to speed up construction and decrease costs–including prefab homes–the team realized that 3D printing could be a viable solution. In late 2017, they began working with Icon, funding the R&D work necessary to develop the machine.

          Chi sono gli esperti israeliani che recuperano le salme delle vittime del Boeing      Cache   Translate Page      

Sono gli 'angeli' che arrivano pochi minuti dopo un evento catastrofico, che sia un attacco terroristico o un disastro naturale: gli esperti israeliani di Zaka (acronimo in ebraico per 'identificazione delle vittime di disastro), oltre 3.600 volontari, operativi 24 ore su 24, che entrano in azione non solo in patria ma anche all'estero, ogni volta che le loro capacità, internazionalmente riconosciute anche dall'Onu, vengono richieste.

L'ultimo caso è quello dell'aereo dell'Ethiopian Airlines, schiantatosi al suolo domenica mattina con 157 persone a bordo, tra cui due israeliani.

Sul posto è stata immediatamente inviata una delegazione: "La velocità" di intervento è fondamentale, "arrivare sul posto di un incidente entro i primi vitali minuti o le prime vitali 48 ore nel caso del crollo di un edificio o di un disastro naturale" è cruciale, ha sottolineato in un'intervista David Rose, direttore internazionale di Zaka, e lui stesso veterano tra i volontari, molti di loro ebrei ultra-ortodossi.

Svolgono lavoro di primo soccorso, assistendo le attività delle ambulanze, e aiutano nell'identificazione delle vittime del terrorismo, impegnandosi nella raccolta dei resti per assicurare loro una degna sepoltura secondo la legge ebraica.

I corpi sono sacri

Proprio così mossero i primi passi nel 1989, in occasione di un attentato contro un autobus.

Sei anni dopo venne ufficialmente fondata da Yehuda Meshi-Zahav l'organizzazione civile di volontari Zaka, il cui motto è "salvare coloro che possono essere salvati, onorare quelli che non si possono salvare".

La vittima viene "trattata in modo sacro, a prescindere dalla sua religione o razza: questa è la più alta forma di 'vera virtù', aiutare qualcuno che non può esprimere la sua gratitudine", ha spiegato Rose.

Negli anni hanno anche diversificato i loro campi d'azione, creando unità specializzate sulle due ruote, per le operazioni in montagna o sotto'acqua, insieme ai gruppi speciali rivolti alle comunità di drusi e beduini.

Alla ricerca degli scomparsi

Parallelamente a questo impegno sul fronte di incidenti e attentati, i volontari collaborano anche nella ricerca di persone scomparse, in Israele e all'estero, così come nelle operazioni di ricerca e salvataggio di fronte a incidenti di massa.

È il caso degli tsunami in Thailandia (2004) e Giappone (2011), il devastante terremoto che ha colpito Haiti nel 2010 o il sisma del 2015 in Nepal, così come gli uragani contro New Orleans (2005), Houston e Florida (2017).

Nel 2018, furono tra le prime organizzazioni umanitarie internazionali ad arrivare dopo l'eruzione del vulcano guatemalteco Fuego, impegnando l'unità Zaka che era stata creata pochi mesi prima nel Paese centro-americano, grazie all'addestramento di soccorritori e volontari della comunità ebraica locale.

          EEUU prolonga TPS por nueve meses para hondureños      Cache   Translate Page      

La Prensa

Washington, Estados Unidos.

El Gobierno de Estados Unidos concederá a partir de enero de 2020 ampliaciones automáticas de nueve meses para los hondureños que forman parte del Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS).

Edward M.

Chen, juez de la Corte del Distrito Norte de California emitió el fallo.

Decidió otorgarle a Honduras y Nepal los mismos beneficios que recibieron Sudán, Haití, El Salvador y Nicaragua en la demanda titulada Ramos vrs Nielsen.

Las designaciones de Estado de Protección Temporal para miles de inmigrantes de El Salvador, Haití, Nicaragua y Sudán habían sido suspendidas por un juez federal en octubre de 2018.

Sin embargo, los inmigrantes con TPS de Honduras y Nepal no fueron incluidos en ese litigio.

A finales de febrero, una familia hondureña y tres nepalíes presentaron una demanda ante un tribunal de distrito del estado de California en contra de la decisión del Gobierno estadounidense de poner fin al TPS y que ordenaba su salida de Estados Unidos en enero de 2020.

Posteriormente Trump acordó permitir que unos 60,000 inmigrantes de Honduras y Nepal conserven su estatus legal temporal, a la espera de la decisión en un tribunal federal, la cual ayer martes fue otorgada por Chen.

LEA: El BCIE, dispuesto a contribuir para superar la crisis de la EneeActualmente más de 42,000 hondureños se encuentran inscritos en el TPS, de los 44,000 que estaban registrados en 2018.

Ellos alegan que les han cancelado la protección que durante años los ampara de la deportación a sus beneficiarios, quienes además carecen de antecedentes criminales y tienen familias establecidas.

La demanda fue entablada por la Unión Americana de Libertades Civiles (ACLU).

El amparo.

La petición contiene los mismos argumentos de carácter racial que utilizaron los ciudadanos de El Salvador, Nicaragua, Haití y Sudán en la demanda Ramos v-Nielsen, que fue resuelta favorablemente y que ordenó suspender la orden de expulsión de estos inmigrantes.

En algún momento, es probable que la demanda del TPS llegue a la Corte Suprema, donde probablemente prevalecerá la administración, dada la mayoría conservadora de cinco jueces.

Claves1 Un grupo de hondureños solicitó la anulación de la orden ejecutiva del Gobierno de Donald Trump, que canceló el Estatus de Protección Temporal (TPS) y que ordenó la salida de miles de compatriotas antes del 5 de enero de 2020.

2 El TPS de Honduras fue cancelado por el DHS el 4 de mayo de 2018 y concedió una última extensión hasta el 5 de enero de 2020.

El TPS de Nepal, por su parte, fue cancelado el 26 de abril del año pasado y el gobierno le otorgó una última extensión hasta el 24 de junio de 2019.

Ese proyecto de ley es poco probable que sea aprobado por el Senado Republicano o el Presidente en su forma actual, pero refleja la voluntad de los demócratas de presionar para que se atienda el estado de los destinatarios de TPS en cualquier proyecto de ley de inmigración.

Explicó que ahora los hondureños y nepalíes entran en la misma condición que se encuentran los salvadoreños, nicaragüenses y haitianos a quienes una corte de California favoreció dejando en suspenso su expulsión de EEUU.

          Windex glass cleaner will be in 100% recycled ocean plastic bottle      Cache   Translate Page      
The new product is the world’s first glass cleaner bottle made from 100% recycled ocean plastic.
SC Johnson to launch Windex Vinegar Ocean Plastic bottles in the spring. A fall 2019 version will include materials collected through a program that will minimize waste while addressing poverty.

As part of its ongoing commitment to tackling the problem of plastic pollution in oceans, SC Johnson has announced that it will launch its 86-year-old Windex brand in a bottle that uses 100% recycled ocean plastic.


“With over 5 trillion pieces of plastic debris in the ocean, conditions are continuing to get worse and worse,” says Fisk Johnson, Chairman and CEO of SC Johnson. “The Windex bottle is just one of the many ways we are not only providing solutions to combat ocean pollution, but taking action to make these solutions a reality.”

The Windex Vinegar Ocean Plastic bottles will be an everyday offering and will be made available at North American retailers such as Target and Walmart. As many as 8 million units will hit retail shelves this spring. According to SC Johnson, the new product is the world’s first glass cleaner bottle made from 100% recycled ocean plastic, and it is also non-toxic and cruelty-free.

Plans are underway to launch a 100% Social Plastic Windex bottle with Plastic Bank by fall of 2019 that will include recycled ocean-bound social plastic sourced by Plastic Bank from Haiti, the Philippines, and Indonesia, which SC Johnson says not only helps the environment, but also provides social benefits to people living below the poverty level. Under this program, the company is now creating recycling programs as part of the solution to stopping ocean-bound plastic and addressing poverty at the same time. The program is designed to educate on recycling and get people to live with and use plastic responsibly. Each bottle will represent a new source of income or economic opportunity for the program’s participants.

“The goal is to create recycling infrastructures to help minimize plastic waste and address the challenges of poverty at the same time,” says Johnson. “This is a massive environmental issue, and it is going to take businesses, governments, NGOs, and civil society working together to solve it.”

Okay. Nonetheless, Japanese is not a country, but Japan is. Japanese is a nationality or ethnicity; hence, Naomi's ethnicity/nationality is Haitian-Japanese, no question about it. Moreover, the article was not about what country she plays for but her new coach. "The new world #1 champ" would've been more suitable (or something along those lines) and a better choice of words to describe who she is in the world of tennis. Thanks for the reply.

Washington, Estados Unidos.

La administración de Donald Trump acordó ayer permitir que unos 60,000 inmigrantes de Honduras y Nepal conserven su estatus legal temporal, a la espera de la decisión en un tribunal federal con sede en California.

Las designaciones de Estado de Protección Temporal para cientos de miles de inmigrantes de El Salvador, Haití, Nicaragua y Sudán ya habían sido suspendidas por un juez federal en octubre de 2018.

La administración actualmente está apelando esa decisión ante el Noveno Circuito de la Corte de Apelaciones.

Hondureños felices.

“Es una buena noticia, pero seguimos en espera”, dijo ayer a Univisión Francisco Portillo, director de la Organización Hondureña Francisco Morazán, en Miami, Florida.

“Nuestros países estaban pendientes y ahora seguiremos esperando una decisión final por parte de las cortes”.

A la pregunta si se trata de una noticia esperanzadora, el activista dijo que “solo es una pequeña luz en el comienzo del túnel.

Todavía hay mucho camino por andar”.

Para José Palma, de la Alianza Nacional TPS, el anuncio es una “nueva noticia”, pero advirtió que “no puede distraer la urgencia y la necesidad de una solución permanente.

          designboom Announces The Design Prize 2019 Nominees, Opens Voting for Social Impact Award      Cache   Translate Page      

Web magazine designboom has officially announced the nominees for all ten categories of THE DESIGN PRIZE 2019. This year marks the third edition of the Milan-based award program, which will help kick off the Milan Design Week festivities beginning next month. The annual program, held in partnership with Triennale Milano and Italian energy company Edison, "recognizes both the extraordinary achievements and little sparks of beauty and delight that have emerged over the past 12 months." Some of the key categories for the prize include "Communication," "Experimentation," "Best Designer," and "Social Impact," the latter of which is open for online voting starting today. Out of the 900 submissions for the socially conscious accolade, THE DESIGN PRIZE has shortlisted three nominees for the public to choose between in order to crown the winner. Read about each project below and visit designboom's website to learn more and cast a vote in the competition by March 24. Ocean Cleanup by Boyan Slat (NL) Described as "the world’s first ocean cleanup system," Boyan Slat's Ocean Cleanup utilizes a 2,000-foot-long plastic tube that is being tested on the water surface in the North Pacific. The technology intends to catch and concentrate plastic, and is estimated to be able to remove half of the Great Pacific garbage patch in five years compared to the thousands of years that conventional methods, such as vessels and nets, could take. However, while the vessel is not currently efficiently collecting garbage, the final design has been revised and is expected to be "close to making it work." Warka Water by Arturo Vittori (ITALY/ USA) Arturo Vittori's Warka Water aims to help bring portable water to Ethiopia, Haiti, Togo and Cameroon, an alternative to collecting drinking water from the river which may be full of pollutants. The concept will source water from the air through a specially constructed vessel that uses different materials depending on the environmental conditions. It also employs a unique structural concept that is meant to easily integrate into the lives of local villagers. Forensic Architecture, Centre for Research Architecture at the Goldsmiths University of London (UK) Forensic Architecture, an independent multidisciplinary research group, uses new architectural and media technologies to investigate "cases of state violence and violations of human rights around the world." The firm draws upon research from site visits, lidar scanning, photogrammetry and ground-penetrating radar to put together digitally-enhanced evidence files that help entities such as international prosecutors and political and environmental justice groups.

          AMERICA/HAITI - Haiti non è sulle prime pagine, ma la crisi continua e i bambini non hanno da mangiare      Cache   Translate Page      
Port au Prince – Haiti continua a vivere gravissimi episodi di corruzione e violenza. Gli scontri fra polizia e giovani armati sulle barricate organizzate a Port-au-Prince e in altre città del paese, non sono apparsi sulle prime pagine della stampa internazionale; tuttavia rivelano il perdurare della crisi e del conflitto sociale. Il regime continua a reprimere brutalmente le proteste mentre i manifestanti chiedono, tra le altre cose, le dimissioni del Presidente Jovenel Moïse.
La Conferenza Episcopale ha dichiarato: "Il momento è grave. E’ deplorabile la perdita di vite e il danno alle proprietà". I Missionari Redentoristi hanno lanciato un appello in cui, tra le altre cose, invitano “i protagonisti sociali e politici ad unire le forze e le intelligenze per salvare la nostra barca comune, che è Haiti” .
Fides ha ricevuto una nota della Ong “Acoger y Compartir”, che ha sede in Spagna e opera ad Haiti, dove si legge: “In questo clima di violente proteste che hanno aumentato l'insicurezza in tutto il paese, in uno stato completo di paralisi, le piccole scuole di Chateau, Fonfrède, San Gerardo e l’orfanotrofio di Damabiah non hanno più cibo per i bambini. Non potendo fare altro per ora, l'11 marzo abbiamo caricato in Spagna un container con 26.000 kg di cibo non deperibile e 1.350 litri di olio, da distribuire tra i genitori dei bambini. Ci uniamo ai Redentoristi che proclamano: ‘Denunciamo la corruzione alla quale hanno partecipato diverse autorità, incluso l'attuale presidente’.” Il container contiene un carico di: lenticchie, 5.940 kg; riso, 8.100 kg; Spaghetti, 6.000 kg; Tagliatelle, 2,680 kg; Ceci, 1,080 kg; Piselli, 2,160 kg; e olio d’oliva e di girasole, 1.350 litri.
Da prima del terremoto del 2010, l'Associazione “Acoger y Compartir” sta seguendo diversi progetti che i Missionari Redentoristi hanno ad Haiti. Fides ha ricevuto le testimonianze di padre Kénol Chéry già Superiore regionale negli ultimi otto anni. Ora il nuovo responsabile, p. Pétuel Gérard, continua ad assicurare la presenza solidale della Ong.

          Ribbipaita      Cache   Translate Page      
Jostain kumman syystä lapset kasvavat edelleen hurjaa tahtia, eikä neljä vuotta vanhat paidat tahdo mahtua päälle. (Ei edes sille nuoremmalle!)

Vähän sain vihjailua, että uusi, lyhythihainen neulepaita kevääksi olisi kiva juttu.

Ohjeeksi valikoitui Cookie A:n Katarina Rib, jota olen katsellut sillä silmällä, että voisipa tuonkin tehdä. Omalle vartalolle tuo ribbineule ei ehkä ole kaikkeiin imartelevimpia, mutta hentoiselle teinille, se sopii vallan mainiosti. 

Langaksi valikoitui ihanan pehmeä, mutta toivottavasti ei ihan liian kuuma Hjertegarnin Merino Cotton, jossa on puolet puuvillaa, puolet merinovillaa. 

Alku oli yllättävän vaikea. Ensin pääntie oli liian avara ja päädyin purkamaan työn ja aloittamaan alusta.  Vähensin aloitussilmukkamäärää 100 silmukkaan. Aluksi tein 2 o 2 n joustinta ja lisäsin 10 s neljän kerroksen päästä ja toiset 10 silmukkaa seuraavien neljän kerroksen jälkeen. Sitten vielä kaksi kerrosta ja vasta sen jälkeen siirryin ohjeeseen.  

Toinen ongelmakohta oli saada "siirtyvän" osan kohdalle lisäykset kääntymään oikeaan suuntaan. Vaikka periaatteessa olisi voinut tehdä ihan niin kuin ohjeessa sanottiin, niin pitihän pilkunviilaajan päästä säätämään. En ihan hahmottanut olivatko lisätyt silmukat menossa jatkossa mihin suuntaan ja miten päin niiden halusin olevan.  Muutaman yrityksen jälkeen alkoi tulla mieleistä jälkeä. Asiaa vaikeutti se, että osassa valmiissa töissä näytti kaitale kaartuvan eri suuntaan kuin toisissa!  





Malli: Katrina Rib for Haiti
Lanka: Hjertegarn Merino Cotton (9235)
Puikot: 3,25
Langanmenekki: 300 g
Koko: S/M


Paidasta tuli pidempi kuin ohjeessa, kokeiltiin päälle ja todettiin, että nyt on hyvä. Siirtyvän osan annoin mennä niin pitkälle, että kohtasi "sivusauman".  
Pienet hihat olivat myöskin toivelistalla. Lopusta langasta tein looppaamalla hihoja niin pitälle kuin lankaa riitti. 

Heti pääsi käyttöön ja taidetaan tykätä. Molemmat.

Haiti non è sulle prime pagine, ma la crisi continua e i bambini non hanno da mangiare
Fides
Haiti continua a vivere gravissimi episodi di corruzione e violenza. Gli scontri fra polizia e giovani armati sulle barricate organizzate a Port-au-Prince e in altre città del paese, non sono apparsi sulle prime pagine della stampa internazionale; tuttavia rivelano il perdurare della crisi e del conflitto sociale. Il regime continua a reprimere brutalmente le proteste mentre i manifestanti chiedono, tra le altre cose, le dimissioni del Presidente Jovenel Moïse. (...)

Rainn Wilson is best known for his legendary role as Dwight in TV’s award-winning show “The Office,” but he’s also a movie actor, a best selling author, the founder of media company Soul Pancake, founder a non profit called Lide Haiti, an amazing human….and a self-professed sci-fi and fantasy nerd! In this episode Rainn takes us on journey through his early life and into his ideas on art and creativity, hard work, parenting and spirituality. We spend some quality time around the lessons he learned trying to make it as an actor and the difficult years that preceded his breakthrough. And we also go deep into what inspires his work away from acting – his family, SoulPancake, and why he founded LIDÈ Haiti, a non-profit organization helping young women in Haiti via the power of creativity. A few more hot topics: Rainn never earned more than $20,000 acting in the first 9 years of his career. His advice? Keep cost of living low, do side jobs, and …. tune in to check it out ;). We examine Rainn’s personal challenges parenting from a place of privilege while simultaneously aiming to foster hard work, motivation, and drive. Rainn shares his spiritual […]

Another Pride & Prejudice retelling. When will I get enough of these?????



Yep. That’s about right.

This time around it’s a YA version – set in Bushwick Brooklyn, featuring the Haitian-Dominican Benitez sisters and the Darcy brothers who just moved into a mini-mansion across the street . . . .

“Who are they?

“Rappers and ballers!”


This was a great little upcycle of my old fave. Age appropriate for the teenage audience it is geared toward with plenty of life lessons thrown in about being careful to judge others for being too “bougie” or “ghetto.”

The only complaint I have? Girls who “flirt” physically – by punching, slapping, pushing, any other sort of manhandling of boys . . . . .



I say this as not only a female (old female yes, but still female), but more so as a mother of boys. This sure as shit wouldn’t be allowed to happen if the script was flipped, so keep ya shovey hands off my sons. Now where did I park my helicopter . . . .

          Deforestación y fuegos forestales amenazan zonas boscosas de Monción      Cache   Translate Page      
Por Jose R. Pimentel 

Monción,Santiago Rodriguez.-“Una nación que destruye su suelo se destruye a sí misma. Los bosques son los pulmones de la tierra, purifican el aire y dan fuerza pura a nuestra gente.” Franklin D. Roosevelt. 


No existe una mejor frase para definir lo que estamos haciendo con nuestros bosques y de lo que estamos haciendo pues todos somos responsables de lo que esta pasando con ellos. 

Desde hace unos años venimos realizando la práctica de tala de arboles con permisos del Ministerio de Medio Ambiente indiscriminadamente,muchas son las denuncias de la forma irregular como se están otorgando estos permisos y las repercusiones que tiene en nuestro medio ambiente. 

No obstante los residentes en las partes altas de la cuenca del río Mao y otros afluentes acuíferos se quejan de la manera indiscriminada como se estan manejando los recursos naturales.

Alegan que las autoridades competentes no hacen nada para frenar los constantes incendios forestales provocados con el único fin de extraer la madera de los árboles que resultan afectados en dichos incendios, lo que se constituye en algo lucrativo para los que se dedican a este negocio. 

La falta de conciencia y educación en materia de ambiental sumado a la tala de árboles han provocado el exterminio de una gran parte de nuestra areas boscosa, en la provincia Santiago Rodriguez y muchas zonas de la Línea Noroeste se esta utilizando la práctica de pagarle a nacionales Haitianos para que realicen chapeo y luego quemas que se convierten en fuegos forestales. 

Es notoria la cantidad de aserraderos en la zona los cuales se han triplicado en la actualidad lo que deja en evidencia lo lucrativo de dicho negocio. 

Se recuerda que en una visita de excelentísimo presidente de la República a la provincia Santiago Rodriguez habló de un plan de reforestación, el cual aun a la fecha no se ha hecho notorio por entender que la siembra de café que es un arbusto no es considerado como un plan de reforestación. 

Se necesita de urgencia una veda al corte de pino el cual se le atribuye a un escarabajo que no es más que la practica con taladros y barrenos por debajo colocándole sustancias toxicas que terminan con su vida en pocos días, para luego cortarlos y conseguir permisos complacientes de cortes a todo lo largo de la cordilleras y áreas boscosas. 

Es notoria la ausencia de planes reales para reforestar con árboles que sean productivos para caudales acuíferos como lo son la Mara, la Caoba el Roble, Amacei, Pomo, Guamacho, Copiey, Gina, Guama,cedro, ébano, guayacán y otros. 

Son muchas las manifestaciones, marchas, artículos y demás que se han realizado en contra de ésta práctica y no han sido escuchadas. 

¿Será a caso que las personas de nuestra línea noroeste necesitara tomar la justicia en sus manos? Es una pregunta que todo el país espera una respuesta del gobierno.

Haití no está en las primeras páginas, pero la crisis continúa y los niños no tienen nada que comer.

Port au Prince (Agencia Fides) – Haití sigue experimentando episodios muy graves de corrupción y violencia. Los enfrentamientos entre policías y jóvenes armados en las barricadas organizadas en Puerto Príncipe y en otras ciudades del país no aparecen en las primeras páginas de la prensa internacional; Sin embargo, revelan la continua crisis y el conflicto social. El régimen continúa reprimiendo brutalmente las protestas, mientras que los manifestantes exigen, entre otras cosas, la renuncia del presidente Jovenel Moïse.
La Conferencia Episcopal (ver Fides 13/02/2019) ha declarado: "El momento es serio. Es deplorable la pérdida de vidas y el daño a las propiedades". Los Misioneros Redentoristas han lanzado un llamamiento en el que, entre otras cosas, invitan a "los protagonistas sociales y políticos a unir fuerzas e inteligencias para salvar nuestro barco común, que es Haití" (ver Fides 01/03/2019).
Fides recibió una nota de la ONG "Acoger y Compartir", que tiene su sede en España y opera en Haití, donde dice: "En este clima de protestas violentas que han aumentado la inseguridad en todo el país, y donde se vive un estado completo de parálisis, las pequeñas escuelas de Chateau, Fonfrède, San Gerardo y el orfanato de Damabiah ya no tienen comida para los niños. No pudiendo hacer nada más por el momento, el 11 de marzo cargamos un contenedor en España con 26,000 kg de alimentos no perecederos y 1,350 litros de aceite, para ser distribuidos entre los padres de los niños. Nos unimos a los Redentoristas (co-líderes de estas escuelas y comedores escolares) que proclaman: "Denunciamos la corrupción en la que han participado varias autoridades, incluido el actual presidente". El contenedor contiene una carga de: lentejas, 5.940 kg; arroz, 8,100 kg; Espaguetis, 6.000 kg; Tallarines, 2.680 kg; Garbanzos, 1,080 kg; Guisantes, 2,160 kg; Y aceite de oliva y girasol, 1.350 litros.
Desde antes del terremoto de 2010, la Asociación "Acoger y Compartir" ha estado siguiendo varios proyectos que los Misioneros Redentoristas tienen en Haití. Fides ha recibido los testimonios del padre Kénol Chéry, quien ha sido Superior Regional durante los últimos ocho años. Ahora el nuevo responsable, el p. Pétuel Gérard, continúa asegurando la presencia solidaria de la ONG.

          March 15th Field Trip      Cache   Translate Page      
This month's field trip is the beginning of our social justice unit. In Core Knowledge we will be looking at social activism and how and why people are motivated to make change in their communities.

Our group will step into eight places Medical Teams International’s staff and volunteers serve with international partners:
 A portrayal of the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan (“Yolanda”) in the Philippines;
 A room with a 25-foot tsunami wave;
 A Ugandan camp for refugees from neighboring countries;
 A Haitian earthquake site and a tent camp where homeless Haitians are living;
 A Cambodian village where mothers and children struggle to survive and thrive;
 A Mexican garbage dump;
 A Guatemalan community where children die from preventable illnesses;
 A Mobile Dental unit where children and adults in our local communities receive care.

It provides them the opportunity to see the reality for children and adults outside of their everyday life.

We will return at lunch time. There will be no hot lunch, so everyone should bring a lunch.

After lunch we will be attending the 6th grade production of Julius Caesar.

School will get out at 3:30
           Elder Soares Visit Highlights God's Promised Blessings Being Claimed in the Caribbean       Cache   Translate Page      

“I see a great future for the Church in the Caribbean Area. They are good people who are dedicated to their families and their desire to serve the Lord.”Missionaries first arrived on Curaçao in 1978 and the island’s first branch was created in October of 1979. Growth followed the 1982 decision to conduct Church meetings in Papiamento. The Curaçao meetinghouse was dedicated in August 1988. Families gather for a February 17 member meeting in Santiago, Dominican Republic, presided over by Elder Ulisses Soares.“When we read in the scriptures about the ‘isles of the sea’ we tend to think of, maybe, the Pacific or other parts of the world,” said Elder Teixeira. “But the Caribbean Area is also truly the ‘isles of the sea.’ With the exception of the three countries on the northern tip of South America (Guyana, Suriname, French Guiana), everything else is an island.”During the meeting, a pair of Curaçao “pioneers”—Ingeborg Zielinski Reni and Yvonne Antersijn—shared experiences from their decades of resolute Church service and dedication in a “corner of the vineyard” still young and largely undeveloped.Dedicating the country and worshipping with the Curaçao members “was a beautiful experience,” said Elder Soares.Prior to the 1978 revelation that gave all people full access to the blessings of the priesthood and the temple, the Church was all but non-existent in the Caribbean—a region with a large population of people of African descent.“You can see the influence of these two great sisters on the island,” said Elder Soares.The February 16 leadership meetings in Santiago, Dominican Republic, offered further glimpses into the hearts, minds, and capacity of the Caribbean Area members. They are “happy people” focused on the gospel and the guidance offered by President Russell M. Nelson and their other leaders.That mixture reflects the rich wonders defining the tens of thousands of Latter-day Saints living across the vast Caribbean Area, Elder Ulisses Soares told the Church News following his recent visit to the region.Elder Soares noted the relative “newness” of the Church in the Dominican Republic and other Caribbean nations.A traveler can drop in on a Relief Society or Sunday School lesson in, say, the Dominican Republic, and hear the gospel taught in Spanish. Drive across the border into Haiti and expect to hear that same message in Haitian Creole or French.Dedicating Curaçao Elder Ulisses Soares bids farewell to Latter-day Saints who gathered for a February 21 member meeting in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago.On February 20, Elder Soares dedicated the island nation of Curaçao for the preaching of the gospel. Members, missionaries, local journalists, and many others from the community gathered in the branch meetinghouse in the capital of Willemstad to listen to the visiting Apostle’s dedicatory prayer and counsel.The region’s linguistic diversity signals its rich history and culture. Many Caribbeans will greet you with a Buenos dias—while others will offer a Bonjou, a Good morning, or even a Goedemorgen.Enjoying Christ’s gospel“The Church has a great future in Curaçao,” he added. “The people are faithful and willing to receive the gospel. ... I could see in their eyes the hope that the gospel brings to them.”“There is a diversity in that area that is very attractive and beautiful to see,” he said. “There is a mixture of cultures—you have influences from all over the world.”

A young man attends February 21, 2019, member meeting in Port of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago, presided over by Elder Ulisses Soares.

The area’s only temple—the Santo Domingo Dominican Republic Temple—was dedicated almost 20 years ago. But that’s about to change.“They asked about how they could become closer to Christ and how they could show Christlike love to one another. They wanted to know how they can utilize the power of the Holy Ghost. They asked questions about issues related to their families and their youth,” reported Elder Teixeira.History was also made in the Caribbean during an Apostle’s visit. Elder Ulisses Soares offers counsel during February 16, 2019, meeting with elders and sisters from the Santiago Dominican Republic Mission.Planning a Latter-day Saint-themed tour across the Caribbean? You’d be wise to download a versatile translation app.For many Latter-day Saint Caribbeans, traveling to the Santo Domingo temple “is not easy,” said Elder Soares. Members from Trinidad and Tobago, for example, often have to fly to Miami, Florida, and then boomerang back to the Dominican Republic and visit the temple. Such travels exact both time and money.That island culture, he added, is embodied by kindness, families, and hard work. It’s an ideal, promised land for the gospel to flourish and grow.“The Caribbean members are focused on strengthening their family in the gospel,” he said. “There is great joy—the people are enjoying the gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives. Elder José A. Teixeira and Elder Ulisses Soares greet missionaries from the Santiago Dominican Republic Mission to a February 16 missionary meeting.They were joined at many events by the Caribbean Area Presidency—Elder Walter F. González, Elder José L. Alonso, and Elder Eduardo Gavarret.The Port-au-Prince Haiti Temple is expected to be dedicated this year. Meanwhile, hurricane-battered Latter-day Saints in Puerto Rico are still celebrating last fall’s announcement to build a temple in the capital city of San Juan.A former Miss Curaçao, Zielinski Reni joined the Church in Holland in 1970. When she returned to her native land she hosted an hourly radio program, frequently drawing upon family home evening lessons and other gospel messages. She became the face of the Church for many on the island.But most important, the diverse Caribbean members remain anchored to their shared devotion to the Lord’s Church. “We learned of their faith and their desire to learn the gospel of Jesus Christ,” said Elder Soares.

Sister missionaries enjoy a February 16, 2019, devotional in Santiago, Dominican Republic, presided over by Elder Ulisses Soares.

Elder Soares’ 11-day tour (February 14–24) marked his first visit to the Caribbean Area. The Quorum of the Twelve Apostles member was accompanied by Elder José A. Teixeira of the Presidency of the Seventy, along with their wives, Sister Rosana Soares and Sister Filomena Teixeira. Elder Soares and other visiting Brethren and their wives with the Santiago Dominican Republic Mission on February 16, 2019.English, meanwhile, is spoken in Jamaica, Barbados, The Bahamas, and several other island nations. And in the baseball-mad lands of Aruba and Curaçao, you will hear chatter in both Dutch and Papiamento.Reviewing plans for the future temples were key highlights for the visiting Brethren during their annual area review of the Caribbean Area (February 18-19). Elder Soares and Elder Teixeira also participated in ministering-focused leadership meetings for local priesthood and auxiliary leaders. They presided over member meetings and met with missionaries serving in various nations—including a tender gathering of missionaries in the Dominican Republic mourning the recent death of Elder Brennan Conrad.“It was beautiful to see how many of the members have received the ordinances of the temple, and I praised them for their sacrifices,” he said.Dynamic moments for Caribbean SaintsElder Soares’ and Elder Teixeira’s recent travels came at a dynamic moment in the Caribbean Area.
