Management reshuffle sees Blueprint MD Barff step down

first_img Topics: Casino & games Strategy Slots Simon Barff has stepped down as UK managing director at Blueprint Operations, with David Purvis set to join the land-based slot supplier as part of a management restructure. Barff spent over five years with Blueprint, a division of Gauselmann Group, but exits after what the supplier described as a “pivotal” period for the business. Gauselmann Group UK general manager, Sascha Blodau paid tribute to Barff’s leadership during a “successful and transformative” time for the supplier. “Under his guidance the manufacturing division has seen continued growth across all areas of the UK business and has cemented the Gauselmann product line as the leading brand in the UK market,” Blodau said. “We would like to thank Simon for his efforts during his time with Blueprint and wish him our very best.” Speaking about his departure, Barff added: “I have had a great time working with the board of the Gauselmann Group, without whose support the success we achieved would have been impossible. “I would like to thank everyone at Gauselmann for all the assistance and support they have given me, and I wish them every future success.” Blueprint Operations, which trades as Blueprint Machines, has already moved to bring in Purvis (pictured), who will take on the Barff’s role and assume responsibility for all business activities with immediate effect. Purvis was previously CEO of Stanleybet International for just over four years and had a spell as managing director of Cyberview. Earlier in his career, he also pent time as sales and marketing director at Inspired Gaming Group. Since February 2013, Purvis has been working as a management consultant for the sports betting and gaming industry, and recently supported the Gauselmann Group on various management consultation projects. Reflecting on his new role at Blueprint, Purvis said: “The opportunity to carry on the great work at Blueprint Operations is an exciting challenge and it is something that I’m really looking forward to. “The foundations of the company are firmly set, so we’ll be looking to build on the recent successes and solidify our market position with some fantastic new game releases and further product developments over the coming year.” The management restructure comes after Gauselmann Group last month moved to bolster its position in the UK market after Blueprint Gaming acquired games developer Project. Blueprint will diversify its content portfolio with the addition of Project’s titles, which will now be adapted for the igaming sector, as well as integrate Project content into its machine offering to enhance it land-based gambling services.

Washington tribe files lawsuit against Valve Corporation

first_img Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter Washington State-based tribal casino operator the Quinault Indian Nation has accused Valve Corporation of facilitating illegal gambling on its online video games distribution platform Steam in a new lawsuit. Tags: Mobile Online Gambling Video Gaming 17th April 2019 | By contenteditor Washington tribe files lawsuit against Valve Corporation AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitter Topics: Casino & games Esports Legal & compliance Sports betting Tribal gaming Video gaming Washington State-based tribal casino operator the Quinault Indian Nation has accused Valve Corporation of facilitating illegal gambling on its online video games distribution platform Steam in a lawsuit.The tribe, which operates the Quinault Beach Resort and Casino in Washington, claims that Valve, also based in the state, has facilitated skin gambling, where players use virtual items as collateral for placing bets, for years.Valve was previously targeted by a class action suite for allegedly allowing skin gambling on its platform in 2016, though this case was ultimately dismissed. In July that year, it moved to ban third party sites from offering skin gambling via the Steam platform’s OpenID API (application protocol interface).However the Quinault Nation claims that its measures were “incomplete and ineffective”, going on to allege that Valve was aware of the accounts used by gambling sites to process bets, and took no action. These mainly facilitated betting on the popular title Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, it says.The tribe goes on to say that Valve also provided technical support to skin gambling sites, while also refusing to shut down features used by such sites including free trading and gift trading, and refusing to blacklist offenders.It also claims that Valve itself offered a form of gambling with a virtual key, which users could purchase for $2.50. This, the tribe says, allowed users to unlock virtual crates for the chance to win items much more valuable than the key itself, and had the look, feel and sounds more commonly associated with slot machines.The Quinault Nation claims that Valve’s conduct violates its rights set out under its gaming compact with the state of Washington. Furthermore, it adds, Valve is engaging in unfair competition with the licensed, regulated and taxed tribal casino.It is looking to have Valve barred from offering the key game until the Washington Gaming Commission has determined whether it requires a licence to do so, as well as having certain trading features offered on Steam suspended or eliminated.The tribe is also looking for damages. While it does not set a figure, it says that the sum – should it prevail in the lawsuit – should cover “all monies wrongfully obtained by the defendant”.In related news, the Interactive Software Federation of Europe (ISFE), the trade body representing Europe’s video games industry, has called on gambling regulators to follow the example of Danish regulator Spillemyndigheden by banning skin gambling.Earlier this month Spillemyndigheden revealed that it had successfully petitioned Danish internet service providers to block access to 15 skin betting sites as part of an ongoing crackdown.“We call on gambling authorities across Europe to follow the example of the Danish Gambling authority to further support efforts to stop illegal practices such as ‘skin betting’ where third party gambling sites allow consumers to bet and trade on virtual items,” ISFE chief executive Simon Little said. “Video games businesses do not allow, facilitate, or condone the conversion of virtual items or currencies  into money or the use of them outside the game such as within unlicensed third-party gambling sites.”Little said that the video games sector was currently funding education campaigns across Europe to make parents aware of the importance of responsible gaming, the dangers of skin betting and unauthorised trading of virtual goods.This, he said, would ensure parents would be able to have informed discussions with their children about the issue.

Ireland Six Nations Squad 2021

Tadhg Furlong enjoys Ireland’s win over England (Sportsfile/Getty Images) Ireland Six Nations Squad 2021Ireland ended their 2021 Six Nations campaign on a high with a comfortable 32-18 victory over England at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.An early try from Keith Earls set Ireland on their way and Jack Conan added another before half-time, while captain Johnny Sexton kicked 22 points to give the retiring CJ Stander a perfect send-off in his final Test in green.Related: Keith Earls try sparks Ireland rout of England Ireland team to play England – Saturday 20 MarchHugo Keenan; Keith Earls, Robbie Henshaw, Bundee Aki, Jacob Stockdale; Jonathan Sexton (capt), Conor Murray; Dave Kilcoyne, Rob Herring, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, Tadhg Beirne, CJ Stander, Josh van der Flier, Jack Conan.Replacements: 16 Ronan Kelleher, 17 Cian Healy, 18 Andrew Porter, 19 Ryan Baird, 20 Peter O’Mahony, 21 Jamison Gibson Park, 22 Billy Burns, 23 Jordan Larmour.RUGBY WORLD VERDICTConor Murray and Johnny Sexton start together at half-back for the first time since round one in Cardiff, writes Alan Pearey.Those with good memories will recall that the last time they wore nine and ten against England – at Twickenham 13 months ago – they both had strikingly poor games. Sexton’s fumble gifted an early try to George Ford in that match. It helped to precipitate talk that his and Murray’s international days were numbered.A year on, any decline is hard to spot from where we’re sitting. At 35, Sexton (98 caps) looks as irrepressible as ever and he has been nigh-on perfect off the kicking tee. Murray (88 caps) is no longer the shoo-in that he once was but you would bet on him making the Lions squad, alongside his skipper, this summer. Perhaps with a couple of Welsh scrum-halves.There is still no one better than Murray at hoisting a box kick into the Dublin sky and England have picked Elliot Daly in midfield in large part to provide an extra high-ball fielder.Still got it! Johnny Sexton and Conor Murray, steering the ship again for Ireland (Sportsfile/Getty)There are six personnel changes to the starting XV, when only two were essential. We admire Andy Farrell’s willingness to alter a winning side. Jacob Stockdale has an opportunity to seize back the shirt from James Lowe, who has been found wanting in his first forays in Test rugby. He is perhaps guilty of trying too hard and will doubtless get another chance.And after 108 caps, are the sands of time finally beginning to drain for loosehead Cian Healy? “The only prop I know who is under 10% body fat,” said ex-Ireland prop Mike Ross.That may be so but Munster’s Dave Kilcoyne gets his first home start since 2018 and it’s a wonderful opportunity because he will be up against a top-notch tighthead in Kyle Sinckler. If he can outmuscle Sinckler in the scrum, his status will shoot up.It is but one of many intriguing individual battles playing out this weekend in front of Warren Gatland, the British & Irish Lions head coach.Related content: Ireland v England match previewIreland team to play Scotland – Sunday 14 MarchHugo Keenan; Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, James Lowe; Jonathan Sexton, Jamison Gibson Park; Cian Healy, Rob Herring, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, James Ryan, Tadhg Beirne, Will Connors, CJ Stander.Replacements: Ronan Kelleher, Dave Kilcoyne, Andrew Porter, Ryan Baird, Jack Conan, Conor Murray, Billy Burns, Jordan Larmour.RUGBY WORLD VERDICT Backs Ireland Six Nations Fixtures 2021(All kick-off times are GMT)Round 1 Sun 7 February, Wales 21-16 Ireland Louis Rees-Zammit produces sensational finishRound 2Sun 14 February, Ireland 13-15 France France win in Dublin for first time since 2011Round 3Sat 27 February, Italy 10-48 Ireland Social media reacts to Iain Henderson try that wasn’tRound 4Sun 14 March, Scotland 24-27 Ireland Scotland score comedy try against IrelandRound 5Sat 20 March, Ireland 32-18 England Keith Earls try sparks Ireland rout of EnglandDon’t miss a game with our TV coverage guide LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALS Can’t get to the shops?

Ireland close out the Six Nations with a win over England The scrum has been one of the big improvements in Scotland’s game over the past year so it’s little surprise that Andy Farrell has brought back experience in the Ireland front row to try to counter that, writes Sarah Mockford. Tadhg Furlong is still working his way back to top form after a year of injury woe but he and Cian Healy should create a solid foundation at scrum time.Look out for the two blue scrum caps in the back row, too, as they could prove critical at the breakdown. Tadhg Beirne and Will Connors have both impressed so far this championship, and they will be looking to deny Finn Russell quick ball with which to work his magic.Ireland team to play Italy – Saturday 27 FebruaryHugo Keenan; Jordan Larmour, Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, James Lowe; Jonathan Sexton, Jamison Gibson Park; Dave Kilcoyne, Ronan Kelleher, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, James Ryan, Tadhg Beirne, Will Connors, CJ Stander.Replacements: Rob Herring, Cian Healy, Andrew Porter, Ryan Baird, Jack Conan, Craig Casey, Billy Burns, Keith Earls.Ireland team to play France – Sunday 14 FebruaryHugo Keenan; Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, James Lowe; Billy Burns, Jamison Gibson Park; Cian Healy, Rob Herring, Andrew Porter, Tadhg Beirne, Iain Henderson, Rhys Ruddock, Josh van der Flier, CJ Stander.Replacements: Ronan Kelleher, Ed Byrne, Tadhg Furlong, Ultan Dillane, Will Connors, Craig Casey, Ross Byrne, Jordan Larmour.Ireland team to play Wales – Sunday 7 FebruaryHugo Keenan; Keith Earls, Garry Ringrose, Robbie Henshaw, James Lowe; Jonathan Sexton, Conor Murray; Cian Healy, Rob Herring, Andrew Porter, Tadhg Beirne, James Ryan, Peter O’Mahony, Josh van der Flier, CJ Stander.Replacements: Ronan Kelleher, Dave Kilcoyne, Tadhg Furlong, Iain Henderson, Will Connors, Jamison Gibson Park, Billy Burns, Jordan Larmour.Ireland Six Nations Squad 2021Forwards(DoB/Club/Position/Test debut/caps)Ryan Baird (26 Jul 1999/Leinster/Lock/2021 v Italy/3)Finlay Bealham (9 Oct 1991/Connacht/Prop/2016 v Italy/14)Tadhg Beirne (8 Jan 1992/Munster/Lock and back-row/2018 v Australia/22)Ed Byrne (9 Sep 1993/Leinster/Prop/2020 v Italy/4)Jack Conan (29 Jul 1992/Leinster/No.8/2015 v Scotland/20)Will Connors (4 Apr 1996/Leinster/Back-row/2020 v Italy/9)Ultan Dillane (9 Nov 1993/Connacht/Lock/2016 v England/18)Tadhg Furlong (14 Nov 1992/Leinster/Prop/2015 v Wales/49 (3 for Lions))Cian Healy (7 Oct 1987/Leinster/Prop/2009 v Australia/109)Dave Heffernan (31 Jan 1991/Connacht/Hooker/2017 v USA/5)Iain Henderson (21 Feb 1992/Ulster/Lock/2o12 v South Africa/63)Rob Herring (27 Apr 1990/Ulster/Hooker/2014 v Argentina/21)Ronan Kelleher (24 Jan 1998/Leinster/Hooker/2020 v Scotland/11)Dave Kilcoyne (14 Dec 1988/Munster/Prop/2012 v South Africa/43)Peter O’Mahony (17 Sep 1989/Munster/Back-row/2012 v Italy/75 (+1 for Lions))Andrew Porter (16 Jan 1996/Leinster/Prop/2017 v USA/37)Rhys Ruddock (13 Nov 1990/Leinster/Back-row/2010 v Australia/27)CJ Stander (5 Apr 1990/Munster/Back-row/2016 v Wales/51 (+1 for Lions))Josh van der Flier (25 Apr 1993/Leinster/Flanker/2016 v Ireland/31) Bundee Aki (7 Apr 1990/Connacht/Centre/2017 v South Africa/31)Billy Burns (13 Jun 1994/Ulster/Fly-half/2020 v Wales/6)Ross Byrne (8 Apr 1995/Leinster/Fly-half/2018 v Italy/12)Craig Casey (19 Apr 1999/Munster/Scrum-half/2021 v Italy/1)Andrew Conway (11 Jul 1991/Munster/Full-back or wing/2017 v England/24)Keith Earls (2 Oct 1987/Munster/Wing/2008 v Canada/93)Chris Farrell (16 Mar 1993/Munster/Centre/2017 v Fiji/14)Jamison Gibson Park (23 Feb 1992/Leinster/Scrum-half/2020 v Italy/9)Robbie Henshaw (12 Jun 1993/Leinster/2013 v USA/52)Hugo Keenan (18 Jun 1996/Leinster/Full-back/2020 v Italy/11)Jordan Larmour (10 Jun 1997/Leinster/Wing/2018 v Italy/29)James Lowe (8 Jul 1992/Leinster/Wing/2020 v Wales/6)Stuart McCloskey (6 Aug 1992/Ulster/Centre/2016 v England/4)Conor Murray (20 Apr 1989/Munster/Scrum-half/2011 v France/89 (+5 for Lions))Johnny Sexton (11 May 1985/Leinster/Fly-half/2009 v Fiji/99 (+6 for Lions))Jacob Stockdale (3 Apr 1996/Ulster/Wing or full-back/2017 v USA/34)last_img read more

Vísperas romanas unen en oración al papa y al arzobispo…

first_img [Episcopal News Service] Los anglicanos y los católicos romanos comparten una historia turbulenta en alguna medida, pero las diferencias quedaron a un lado el 10 de marzo cuando el arzobispo de Cantórbery Rowan Williams y el papa Benedicto XVI oraron juntos durante un oficio ecuménico de vísperas en San Gregorio Magno al Celio, en Roma.El oficio conmemoró el 1000 aniversario de la fundación de la comunidad monástica Camaldoli de Italia, que incluye una presencia en San Gregorio, un sitio de importante significación para los orígenes de la Iglesia de Inglaterra.Ambos líderes cristianos, que celebraron una reunión privada temprano por la mañana para conversar acerca de derechos humanos y de su preocupación por la Tierra Santa, pronunciaron una homilía durante las vísperas y juntos encendieron velas en la capilla de San Gregorio.Haciéndose eco de las palabras de sus dos predecesores, Williams describió la relación entre la Comunión Anglicana y la Iglesia Católica Romana como “segura no obstante imperfecta” durante un sermón en que ensalzó las virtudes de humildad y profecía de San Gregorio.“‘Segura’ debido a la visión eclesial compartida con la cual nuestras comuniones están comprometidas… una visión de la restauración de la plena comunión sacramental”, dijo él “Y ‘no obstante imperfecta’, debido a los límites de nuestra visión, a un déficit en la profundidad de nuestra esperanza y paciencia”. [El texto completo de la homilía del arzobispo se puede encontrar aquí .]El papa, según la traducción de Radio Vaticano a su sermón, que fue pronunciado en Italiano, expresó su esperanza de que “el signo de nuestra presencia aquí juntos frente al altar, donde Gregorio mismo celebraba el sacrificio eucarístico, permanecerá no sólo como un recuerdo de nuestro fraternal encuentro, sino también como un estímulo para todos los fieles -tanto católicos como anglicanos- para alentarles… a renovar su compromiso a orar constantemente y a trabajar en pro de la unidad. …” [El texto completo de la homilía del papa puede encontrarse aquí.]El obispo Pierre Whalon, de la Convocación de Iglesias Episcopales en Europa, participó en el oficio. Él le dijo a ENS que el evento “significa que el movimiento ecuménico no está muerto. Durante algunos años, ha estado congelado, ya que los socios principales han tenido que enfrentar serios problemas en sus propias iglesias. Pero estas reuniones insisten en mostrar que las cosas son diferentes ahora y que no volveremos a los malos tiempos de antaño. Eso alienta la cooperación en el nivel de la base, que es donde la Iglesia realmente tiene lugar”.La iglesia está construida en el sitio desde el cual San Gregorio el Grande, en el siglo VI, envió a San Agustín, primer arzobispo de Cantórbery, junto con 30 monjes, a re-evangelizar a Inglaterra. Ellos desembarcaron en [el año] 597 y se les acredita con establecer los cimientos de la renovación del cristianismo inglés.Las vísperas del 10 de marzo fue la tercera vez en la historia reciente que un papa y un arzobispo de Cantórbery han adorado juntos en San Gregorio (el papa Juan Pablo II oró en la iglesia con el arzobispo Robert Runcie en 1989 y de nuevo con el arzobispo George Carey en 1996).“Este arzobispo de Cantórbery ha hecho muchos más viajes a Roma que ninguno de sus predecesores”, dijo Whalon, quien añadió que los dos líderes comparten una relación personal y son “eminentes teólogos en sus respectivas iglesias”.Durante el fin de semana, Williams también predicó y presidió un oficio eucarístico el 11 de marzo en San Pablo Intramuros, una parroquia de la Iglesia Episcopal y la primera iglesia no católica romana que se construye dentro de los muros de Roma. A la congregación de San Pablo se unieron miembros de la iglesia anglicana de Todos los Santos en Roma, una parroquia de la Diócesis en Europa de la Iglesia de Inglaterra.Un vídeo del sermón del arzobispo puede verse aquí.Whalon dijo que él había llevado el báculo de Williams en el oficio como un signo de la hospitalidad de la Iglesia Episcopal.Luego del oficio, Williams le dijo a ENS que la presencia de las iglesias anglicana y episcopal en Roma es “un recordatorio a nuestros amigos católicos romanos de que somos una comunión mundial, y mire a la composición internacional de la congregación aquí esta mañana y verá que la razón es convincente”.La relación entre la Comunión Anglicana y la Iglesia Católica Romana ha sido tensa en los últimos años debido a diferencias respecto a la ordenación de las mujeres y a los empeños del Vaticano de ofrecer un hogar espiritual a ex anglicanos o anglicanos desafectos al tiempo que les permiten conservar aspectos de su liturgia y tradiciones. Estas medidas se han tomado a través de un “Ordinariato Personal”, una región geográfica semejante a una diócesis, si bien típicamente nacional en su extensión.El primer ordinariato se creó en Inglaterra y Gales en enero de 2011 y se están finalizando los planes para establecer ordinariatos para Australia y el Canadá.Aun más recientemente, el 1 de enero de 2012, se creó un ordinariato en Estados Unidos para recibir a ex parroquias y sacerdotes episcopales -incluidos sacerdotes casados- que buscan ingresar en la Iglesia Católica Romana. Jeffrey Steenson, que fuera obispo de la Diócesis Episcopal de Río Grande, fue nombrado como su primer “ordinario”.Whalon dijo a ENS que la manera en que este arreglo había sido decidido y anunciado por el Vaticano en noviembre de 2009 “era insultante para nosotros”, pero él hacía notar que Katharine Jefferts Schori, la obispa primada de la Iglesia Episcopal, fue impuesta por los católicos romanos de que Steenson sería nombrado a cargo del ordinariato en Estados Unidos.“El aviso anticipado parece ser una nueva conciencia de que las relaciones ecuménicas importan”, dijo Whalon. “En cualquier caso, como la disposición no tienen ningún fundamento eclesiológico, sino que es realmente un gesto pastoral, no durará más de una o dos décadas”.Mary Reath, una episcopal laica de la Diócesis de Jersey y miembro de la junta de gobierno del Centro Anglicano de Roma, dijo a ENS por correo electrónico desde su casa en Princeton que si bien es “hora de un desafío excepcional para los líderes anglicano y católico romano… la reconciliación teológica en los últimos 40 años ha sido particularmente fructífera. Ello nos lleva naturalmente a plantear interrogantes más concretas de coexistencia y cooperación”.El Centro Anglicano en Roma alberga una extensa biblioteca, sirve de lugar de encuentro ecuménico y de centro educacional, e incluye las oficinas del representante diplomático del arzobispo de Cantórbery ante el Vaticano, el Rdo. Canónigo David Richardson, que acompañó a Williams durante su visita.“¿Puede alguien negar que si hubiera mayor coordinación entre dos de los cuerpos eclesiásticos más universales, organizados e influyentes del mundo, los pobres y los pobres en espíritu del mundo serían mejor servidos?”, preguntó Reath, quien es autora de Roma y Cantórbery: la elusiva búsqueda de la unidad (Rome and Canterbury: The Elusive Search for Unity [2007]). “El momento es oportuno para el ecumenismo práctico y humano”.Una tercera fase de la Comisión Internacional Anglicana-Católico Romana (ARCIC, por su sigla en inglés) se encuentra actualmente en proceso, lidiando con cuestiones concernientes a la Iglesia como comunión, local y universal, y cómo la Iglesia llega a discernir la doctrina ética correcta. ARCIC es un diálogo ecuménico entre las dos iglesias que se estableció en 1967.En Estados Unidos, el diálogo anglicano-católico romano (ARCUSA), del cual Reath es miembro, ha estado reuniéndose regularmente desde los años sesenta, lo cual hace la relación de diálogo más antigua de la Iglesia Episcopal. Su última reunión del 27 al 28 de febrero, tuvo lugar en el centro denominacional de la Iglesia Episcopal en Nueva York.La Rda. Margaret Rose, encargada de la Iglesia Episcopal para las relaciones ecuménicas e interreligiosas, le dijo a ENS que la obra de ARCUSA “al igual que ocurre con otros diálogos… enfatiza el deseo de compartir el trabajo en misión y la Shalom que ayuda a poner en perspectiva la vida y la obra, la fe y el orden”.El grupo de ARCUSA participó en dos oficios eucarísticos en la capilla del Centro denominacional, dirigido uno de ellos por la Iglesia Episcopal, y el otro por los miembros católico romanos. Si bien la Iglesia Episcopal invita a todos los miembros bautizados del Cuerpo de Cristo a recibir la Santa Comunión, la Iglesia Católica Romana la reserva oficialmente para sus propios miembros bautizados.“El compartir el espacio de culto y el altar y nuestra fraternidad durante la reunión, así como la franqueza de las conversaciones, son una señal de nuestro deseo de unidad y de amistad, incluso cuando estamos conscientes de que no tenemos una participación común de la Eucaristía”, dijo Rose a ENS.John Bauerschmidt, obispo de la diócesis episcopal de Tennessee y copresidente de ARCUSA, dijo a ENS que “las relaciones a nivel de feligresía con los vecinos, amigos y miembros de la familia que son católicos romanos hacen de este diálogo algo más que un asunto teórico… Los miembros del diálogo están descubriendo acuerdo en asuntos substanciales así como algunas diferencias familiares tanto en la eclesiología como en asuntos morales”.Bauerschmidt agregó que orar juntos “es un importante indicador de la hermandad que los cristianos comparten, y en sí misma promueve la unión a que somos llamados”.Él describió los eventos del fin de semana en Roma como “causa de regocijo”.Más tarde, el 11 de marzo, Williams se unió con el P. Robert Hale, antes de la nueva Ermita Camaldoli, en Big Sur, California, para presentar una conferencia sobre “Virtudes monásticas y esperanzas ecuménicas”. [El texto completo de la presentación del arzobispo puede encontrarse aquí.]Como colofón de su viaje a Roma, el arzobispo visitó la comunidad monástica en la abadía de Montecassino, fundada por San Benito alrededor del año 529, donde asistió [al oficio de] vísperas y pronunció una charla sobre “Los monjes y la misión: una perspectiva de Inglaterra”.Resumiendo las relaciones entre las dos iglesias mundiales, Williams le dijo a ENS: “Estamos trabajando juntos por el reino, estamos orando juntos y, por supuesto, tenemos una agenda institucionalmente enorme, de la cual no tenemos ninguna idea cómo arreglar, pero entre tanto seguimos trabajando y orando con gran afecto”.— Matthew Davies es editor y reportero de Episcopal News Service.

Black library workers force director’s resignation

first_imgMarie KellyPhiladelphiaThe Free Library of Philadelphia is the latest city institution to succumb to the power of workers organized against oppression and unfair labor practices.  On June 25, library workers formed the Concerned Black Workers of the Free Library. By July 23, their public revelations about a long-time culture of discrimination forced the resignation of Director Siobhan Reardon.Black Lives Matter protesters in Philadelphia June 2. Credit: Joe PietteIn an open letter to management, Black workers described a work environment that failed to address their safety and welfare during both the COVID-19 pandemic and the days of police violence that followed the murder of George Floyd. As libraries reopened during the pandemic, workers reported expired hand sanitizer, personal protective equipment of poor quality and insufficient supplies overall.Library management showed an insincere commitment to the Black Lives Matter movement when they allowed the National Guard to house troops in the Northwest Philadelphia library branch, located in the predominantly Black community. But the library employees’ petition against this practice got no results. The troops had been deployed to the city to terrorize peaceful protesters who were calling for an end to state violence against Black people.Now these workers are calling for the removal of library Board of Trustees’ chair Pamela Dembe.  Both Director Reardon and Dembe failed to respond to repeated calls to address racial bias within the library, including pay inequality and poor representation of people of color in leadership positions and on the library board.Dembe made a particularly offensive remark that people of color who were rich enough to be board members were hard to find. Dembe has a history of racial bias.Prior to joining the library board, Dembe served as the presiding judge of the Philadelphia Court of Common Pleas. In 2001 she refused a motion by political prisoner Mumia Abu-Jamal for an evidentiary hearing on new evidence of overt racial bias in his case.Dembe deemed it irrelevant that a court stenographer overheard Judge Albert Sabo tell a prosecutor, “Yes, I’m going to help them fry the n—-r.” In 2012, Dembe imposed a life sentence without parole on Abu-Jamal, without even notifying him — a violation of constitutional and Pennsylvania statutory law.Rampant racial discriminationBlack workers at the Free Library have been making their demands known for some time, but the response from Reardon and the library board has been slow, at best.  The workers describe an environment where racial discrimination is rampant and grievances are not taken seriously by management.When one Black staff member planned to use a National Endowment for the Humanities grant she received in 2017 to host programming around the killing of Black men by police, she was told the title she proposed, “Black and Blue,” was controversial, since it portrayed police in a negative light.  Her new title selection, “The Legacy of Race and Policing,” also met with resistance, including a proposal that she invite “divergent opinions — which could include hate groups.” ( 2019 the Free Library had just over 800 employees. Some 391 were Black and earned an average of $7,533 less than the library system’s median salary, while white workers averaged $12,012 above the median.  Payroll data show Black workers are disproportionately represented in lower-paying subordinate or maintenance roles.In June 2019, library employees disrupted an all-staff meeting to address the racial biases and the need for a functioning Diversity and Inclusion Committee.  A survey sent to employees revealed that 86 percent of respondents had witnessed or experienced racial bias, along with reports of homophobia, Islamophobia, transphobia, xenophobia and anti-Semitism.These revelations by the Concerned Black Workers of the Free Library caught the attention of several well-known speakers scheduled to be part of the library’s on-line summer events. On July 2, Colson Whitehead, a Pulitzer prize-winning author of “The Underground Railroad” and “Nickel Boys,” cancelled his Philadelphia library event in solidarity with the workers.  Other speakers followed Whitehead’s lead.  Whitehead said his backing out of the speaking engagement was a “no-brainer when so much of the Black staff is in revolt about how they’ve been treated.”On July 17, more than 240 non-Black library staff signed a letter to Reardon, the Board of Trustees and the Board of Directors supporting the demands of their Black co-workers.
