The stock has fallen more than 15 per cent this year, compared with a flat performance for Japan’s main index – the TOPIX. Jesse Toprak, a senior analyst with Truecar.com, said settlements with the government are a good first step, but that regaining consumer trust in a hotly contested US market would take years. whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Tags: NULLlast_img read more

Photo: GreenUp Jamestown, via Facebook.[Episcopal News Service] Easter comes less than a week before Earth Day this year. That closeness is more than a fact of the calendar for St. Luke’s Episcopal Church in Jamestown, New York. It’s a double calling to what the Rev. Luke Fodor terms “creation care.”The congregation at St. Luke’s is at the center of a community project launched this Lent called “GreenUp Jamestown” that mixes Christian spirituality and environmental stewardship. GreenUp’s initial slate of events is filled with eco-themed lectures and panel discussions arranged with the help of several partner organizations in the city. It culminates with an Earth Day program on April 22, though Fodor hopes the scope and support will continue to grow.“The more we can … connect again with our origins, then we’ll be so much healthier, not just in our bodies but in our spirits,” Fodor said.That connection is more than theoretical, he said. When a priest on Ash Wednesday says “’we came from dust and to dust we will return,’ that means the Earth,’” he said, adding but much of modern society has become alienated from our dirt-bound biology. Fodor also laments that even though we still celebrate a Christian liturgy with deep agricultural underpinnings, we’ve lost touch with how our food gets to our table.“People don’t have a real sense of creation care, so we need to do something,” Fodor said.This type of “doing something” wasn’t at the top of his priorities list when Fodor first moved to western New York three years ago to take over as rector of the Episcopal church in this Rust Belt city known historically for its furniture manufacturing.Fodor’s longtime passion for the environment already had begun losing its grip on his daily routine. As a younger man in New York City, he had biked everywhere. He was diligent about recycling. When he and his wife became parents, they chose cloth diapers over landfill-clogging disposables.Some of those habits started changing when Fodor began serving at a church on suburban Long Island, starting with his increased reliance on a car over the bicycle. But in Jamestown he found a city closer to nature and God’s earthly creations than its industrial, manufacturing past may suggest.Fodor pointed to one of Jamestown’s biggest draws, Chautauqua Lake, a natural jewel on the west side of the city. The region also is a popular bird flyway, and the city is the birthplace of Roger Tory Peterson, the renowned naturalist and bird artist. Jamestown has celebrated Earth Day from the beginning in 1970, when then-Mayor Stan Lundine helped coordinate a stunt involving a public display of several tons of dirt to illustrate how much pollution falls on the city. The stunt drew national attention.“There’s a real history here of environmentalism,” said James Colby, a member of St. Luke’s who has been working with Fodor on getting GreenUp going.Colby, 66, is retired after working as curator for the Weeks Gallery at Jamestown Community College, and one of his contributions to GreenUp will be to coordinate a 14-foot art installation at St. Luke’s made of illuminated mason jars. But that is set for next year. In this first year, he and Fodor have aimed primarily to spark greater environmental awareness in the community while enlisting many collaborators, including the Roger Tory Peterson Institute of Natural History, the Robert H. Jackson Center and Jamestown’s Audubon center.St. Luke’s, then, is “sort of a center organization with spokes that reach out to people already working with the environment,” Colby said.James Colby and Sherri Mason pose for a photo at the March 8 event sponsored by GreenUp Jamestown. Photo: GreenUp Jamestown, via Facebook.The GreenUp lecture series’ kickoff event, held March 8 at the public library in Jamestown, was a presentation by Sherri Mason, a chemistry professor at the State University of New York at Fredonia. Fodor said a crowd of about 100 people came to listen to Mason talk about her research on the Great Lakes and about the environmental legacy of writer Rachel Carson.The library was chosen as the venue to bring the project into the community, not isolate it in the church. Even so, before attending Mason’s presentation, about 25 parishioners joined Fodor for a brief service in the St. Luke’s chapel in which they prayed for forgiveness for humanity’s past abuse of the environment and vowed to recommit themselves to being Earth stewards.Fodor will lead the next two programs in the GreenUp series, on March 15 and 22, at St. Luke’s. One will look to the Celtic saints as models for “green spirituality” and the other will mine Genesis for an answer to the question “Did god really propose human domination of creation?”The president of the Roger Tory Peterson Institute is scheduled to speak March 29 at the church about Jamestown’s “urban nature,” and the Lenten lecture series concludes April 5 with another presentation at the library, this time a panel discussion of Rachel Carson’s “Under the Sea-Wind.”Other events are scheduled beyond the Lenten series, including an evening of prayer, art and music on Earth Day at St. Luke’s.In this first year, the diversity of topics and community organizations was by design, Colby said. “What we tried to do this year is to give everyone a piece.” The future of GreenUp Jamestown may entail tackling certain projects and issues more intently, such as supporting cleanup efforts in Chautauqua Lake or promoting solar energy and other renewable sources.Colby, who has enough solar panels on his home to provide for his own energy needs, calls climate change “the biggest challenge that we’re facing.”“I think as Christians, it’s an obligation to bring society forward, and clean, renewable energy is one of those areas,” he said.– David Paulsen is an editor and reporter for the Episcopal News Service.

At the same time, a young boy traded his family’s cow for five magic beans, a girl in a red cape is skipping to Grandma’s house, a woman trapped in a tall tower lets down her long hair and a witch puts a curse on a baker and his wife’s home.Cinderella does chores as her step-sisters and step mother ridicule her. (Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.)These first scenes introduced the audience to The Fort Worth Academy of Fine Arts “Into the Woods,” a high school musical based on The Brothers Grimm fairytales that intertwines common fairy tales into one story.“Into the Woods” has a larger agenda than singing and dancing to entertain its audience. Director C. Nicholas Morris said the musical tackles worldly issues “that we can relate to as an adult audience.”Family matters, loss, temptation, greed, honesty and forgiveness are just some of deeper issues Morris said he hopes the audience will connect with and begin to think more about.Senior Hayden Hart plays the Baker, who is on a quest to have a child with his wife. A curse is placed on their house by a neighboring witch, so their adventure starts by going into the woods to try to break the curse.The Witch puts a curse on the Baker and his wife. (Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.)Hart said there are a lot of messages the cast is trying to send to the audience, but some are more brought out than others, such as the message in the last song of the musical.“They say, basically be careful what you tell your children because they will listen and grow up into what you tell them to be,” Hart said.To understand the varied messages throughout the musical, Morris said the cast had to tackle the subtext and dig deeper into what looks like a very simple fairytale on the surface, but is actually a lot more involved.“We had them research the original fairytales and read those books,” Morris said. “Also, just having community time and talking as a cast about ‘What do giants mean? What does that represent in the show?’”The Witch talks to the Baker. (Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.)Senior Katie Blanton plays the Witch, an old hag who puts a curse on the Baker and his wife. Blanton said analyzing the witch’s past helped her discover how to better play the character.“The witch, her past is just insane,” Blanton said. “Studying her back ground, it makes so much sense for every move she does, every word she says.”The cast has been practicing every week since the first of September, but auditions go back to the second week of school. The audition process was led by a panel of judges including Morris, FWAFA teachers and local professionals.“This year we did it different from past years, so the first night they just came in and did their vocal cuts for us,” Morris said.The next night the panel had callbacks and held the dance audition, read scenes and sang more before casting the show. Morris said one reason for choosing this musical was to stray from FWAFA’s recent history of having big ensemble shows, and instead focus on challenging students to audition for one, specific role.The cast dances on stage at the end act one. (Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.)Hart said he decided to audition for the role as the Baker because he felt like he could relate to the character.“I kind of connect with him because he’s a very scared little guy, which I’m not as scared of everything like he is, but I can just relate to a lot of what he goes through in the show,” Hart said.The second reason for choosing “Into the Woods,” was to introduce the students to a complex Stephen Sondheim musical. Morris said Sondheim is “challenging musically, rhythmically” and it’s mentally fatiguing for the students to keep up with the musical changes on stage.The Witch scolds her daughter Rapunzel. (Photo by Elizabeth Hinz.)Blanton sang a solo as the Witch in the first act of the musical, which started with her angrily telling her daughter Rapunzel how children should listen to their mothers, and then the song quickly switched to a slower rhythm as she asked Rapunzel to stay with her.“Sondheim who wrote the show wrote every little note so complex, and each note has a message,” Blanton said. “I think that’s what’s so unique about the show is although there’s so much material, there’s a message behind every word.”The musical will run through Nov. 4  and you can buy tickets at the FWAFA website.

The Bench of Justice Anoop Chitkara further remarked, “The accused appears to be pervert and, as such, there is no question to grant the bail to the Accused.” Allegations against the Accused As per the statement of the minor victim girl, on July 4, 2020, when she and her friend Sandeep were walking 20-30 meters below the road to have gossips, 6 boys came there and one of them (A-2), who knew the victim, slapped both of them. After that they forced the victim to undress and when they made the victim to remove her clothes, then A-1 started making her nude video. In the meantime, other boys were continuously beating Sandeep Kumar and A-1 caught hold of the victim from her arm and took her to the bushes, where she was made to remove her clothes and he committed rape upon her. Allegedly, when she resisted, then he slapped her, in the meanwhile, other boys had caught hold of Sandeep, so that he could not save her and while leaving, they threatened the victim not to reveal this incident to anyone, otherwise they would make her video viral. However, after some days, she came to know that they had uploaded the video and then she informed the police, which led to the registration of the instant FIR. Submissions made before the Court The Counsel for the petitioner contended that his incarceration before the proof of guilt would cause grave injustice to the petitioner and family. On the contrary, the State contended that the Police have collected sufficient evidence against the bail petitioner and that the crime was heinous, the accused was a risk to law-abiding people, and bail might send a wrong message to society. Court’s order Underlining that the accused took advantage of her being with the male friend and the main accused forced himself upon her and they not only did that, they also made a video and made it viral, the Court, further added “Given the age of the accused to be just 22 years, it shall be open to the accused/petitioner to file fresh bail application in the changed circumstances or in case the trial is delayed.” Lastly, noting that in the facts and circumstances peculiar to this case, the petitioner failed to make out a case for bail, the petition was dismissed with liberty to file a new bail application.In related news, observing that”NO MEANS NO- The simplest of sentences have become the most difficult for some men to understand,” the Himachal Pradesh High Court on Wednesday rejected the bail application filed by a man accused of raping a 17-year-old minor.The single-judge bench comprising of Justice Anoop Chitkara observed thus:”No does not mean yes, it does not mean that the girl is shy, it does not mean that the girl is asking a man to convince her, it does not mean that he has to keep pursuing her. The word NO doesn’t need any further explanation or justification. It ends there, and the man has to stop. Be that as it may, the victim, in this case, said no to the accused when he started touching her, but he continued. It nowhere implies consent, or zeal and desire to explore and feel each other in romantic love.”The Court reasoned further noted that the victim revealed the unfortunate incident to her mother “prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident.””She would have kept it discreet because, as per her version, no one had noticed them. If the sexual act was with her will, she would not have told anyone about the same and tried to conceal the same. The victim voluntarily narrated the incident to her mother, prima facie points towards the genuineness of the incident. It would be correct to say that it was courageous for the victim girl to talk about the unfortunate incident to her mother and later come forward and report the same with the police.” The Court observed at the outset.
