In October 2019, he announced his retirement plans in an address to the diocesan synod. He said he intended to step down in June 2021 upon the consecration of his successor.Instead, he will enter a “transitional sabbatical” on Feb. 1, 2021, the diocese said, at which point he will “delegate ecclesiastical authority to the Standing Committee.” He will continue to handle “matters that require the bishop’s actions,” such as ordinations and deployment of clergy, though his schedule of regular visits to congregations will cease during the sabbatical.His retirement date is now set for June 30, 2021, unless a successor is consecrated sooner.The full text of the diocese’s July 29 announcement follows.BISHOP MARTINS AND STANDING COMMITTEE ANNOUNCE AGREEMENTThe Rt. Rev. Daniel H. Martins, Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Springfield and the Standing Committee of the Diocese have reached an agreement through a mediation process. The process was in response to a conflict arising from the Standing Committee’s perception of the viability of the Bishop’s episcopal oversight of the Diocese while living in Chicago.The mediation process was overseen by the Presiding Bishop’s Office for Pastoral Development and the mediator was retired Northern Indiana Bishop Edward Little.The terms of the agreement indicate that Bishop Martins will enter a transitional sabbatical beginning February 1, 2021. The sabbatical will end with his retirement on June 30th, or upon the consecration of the 12th Bishop of Springfield, whichever comes first.During the transitional sabbatical, Bishop Martins will delegate ecclesiastical authority to the Standing Committee, with the exception of those matters that require the Bishop’s action, including those matters related to ordinations, deployment of clergy within the Diocese (in consultation with the Standing Committee), as well as clergy discipline.The Bishop’s official visitation calendar will end on January 31, 2021, and Bishop Martins, in consultation with the Standing Committee and with the office of the Bishop for Pastoral Development, will designate a bishop to provide such assistance as may become necessary during his sabbatical. However, it should be noted that, during the sabbatical, Bishop Martins will welcome invitations to preside and preach, including administering baptism and confirmation.

The married building owner couple who are fashion designers felt attracted to peculiar sensitivity that Yeonnam-dong has. They thought they could enjoy pleasurable lifestyle as there are restaurants where you can taste the dishes from around the world, and as cute small prop shops and workshops of designers are gathered around there. Above all, the fact that there is a park where they can enjoyably take a walk with their dog made them decide to have their new nest in “Yeonnam-dong” where they have never visited before.Save this picture!© Yousub SongThey were pleasant customers who visited us as they felt the charm of the city rather than focusing on the value of real estate or the school district issue.As we encountered this not so big or small land of just over 130m2, we tried not to discuss too much about architecture. We believed that it was our job to make the furniture and the paintings that the building owner had stand out and to faithfully materialize the space they wanted. It is not easy to build the required area and program satisfactorily in most of the construction work in the city. Nevertheless, when the desire takes over for an architect, sometimes houses with features of daily inconveniences that you need to endure are built.Save this picture!© Yousub SongWe have decided to build this house with careful care and sincere consideration of what would be the best we could do for this married couple who have given this opportunity to young architects although they could have gone to a more proven architect with more prominence.Save this picture!Section 01The elevation consists of an exposed concrete wall and carbonized ash wood. The shadows of the cherry trees standing face to face are as if they are painted with shadows on the canvas made of carbonized wood. On the other hand, in the indoor, a cherry tree looks like a picture through a large window through the living room.Save this picture!© Yousub SongThe architecture outside and the cherry three inside become scenery to each other.The couple, whose children have all moved out, wanted to have a studio style where the living room and the bedroom are in unity rather than making a separate bedroom. Because of this unique idea, we make a space that is one but is two by making a mezzanine where you can create a big patio in the living room to maximize the sense of space and place a bed. It’s moving line through the powder room to the dress room and the bathroom is an interesting element, and the bathroom space where you can look at the sky through the small roof light window above the bathtub on a sunny day and take a lower body bath while listening to the sound of rain on a cloudy day is also attractive.Save this picture!© Yousub SongTo the couple who said they wanted to have a terrace where they can hold a simply party by inviting some friends, I have suggested that it would be great if that space has a terrace and kitchen together even if that means you have to move thing up and down. Although it is not a large space, I wanted to have a place with outdoor café like feeling where inside and outside are mixed together when you open a window.More than anything, first, I started out by consulted with them on contemplating where and how to place the fabulous furniture and painting that the couple had and proceeded with the project. In addition to the couch or table, we have consulted together even on speakers and pendants in advance and made decision in details and proceeded forward. The designer who was in charge of the project went out on-site every day even after the construction has started and checked all the elements one by one and made decisions. The collaboration work related to furniture production was also an impressive project. We designed the closet that fills a large mid-level wall over five meters and we needed to have many communications with the team that was building it. Save this picture!© Yousub SongThe keyword ‘communication’ that we always emphasize does not work when only one side screams hard. The owners and architects, architects and builders, and builders and builders, when all these ensembles ‘communicate’ with one goal, I believe that project can always create a space with authenticity.The young architects had done all they could and had given their best as they appreciated this opportunity that was given to them and the builders appreciated their passion and helped. Above all, the consideration of the owners who acknowledged and understood the various possibilities and values that architecture can provide has been the main driving force that lead this project to a good direction.Save this picture!© Yousub SongI hope this small architecture that was created in collaboration with young architects can be a momentum in making the city the couple love even more attractive.Project gallerySee allShow lessHE-Restaurant / GOASelected ProjectsGoertek Green Town – Time Books / Qingdao Greentown Architecture Design + Beijing H-…Selected Projects Share CopyHouses•Yeonnam-dong, South Korea Photographs deDear_ Yeonnam / Cho and Partners Structural Engineer: CopyAbout this officeCho and PartnersOfficeFollowProductWood#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesYeonnam-dongSouth KoreaPublished on January 04, 2018Cite: “deDear_ Yeonnam / Cho and Partners” 04 Jan 2018.

The project consists of four single-family houses on the coast of Aamchit, Lebanon as well as the rehabilitation of the existing landscape and old houses. The site slopes west towards the Mediterranean, its angle allowing for embedding the houses in the landscape in such a way that the front is open to the view and breeze whereas the other sides of the house are protected by the earth. Each house consists of a double-layer wall that retains the earth from the east and slopes with the land north and south. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisThe framing/retaining wall is doubled to create insulation and service passage against the soil’s humidity and to draw in cool air into the house. The double perimeter wall also works as a structure and is used for all the services of the house, leaving the ground floor open. A courtyard is inserted in the back to enhance cross ventilation and create a microclimate in the extreme days of summer and winter. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisSave this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisA tower that houses the bedrooms is placed at the southeastern side of the courtyard to provide shading. It works like a chimney to release the heat from the courtyard and the bedrooms. The stair and bathrooms are located at the east and south side to provide a thermal mass against the summer heat while the northwest corner is completely clear of the structure, turning the bedrooms into balconies when the windows are open. The combination of the courtyard and tower produces a new house typology that is used with degrees of variation on the site as the development grows around its common facilities and the sea. Save this picture!SectionLandscape. The general landscape strategy consists of creating a xeriscape that sets a transition from the ‘beach’ to the ‘mountain’. This is mainly achieved by the ground covering and associated plants and trees (ferns, weeds, flowers, and olives). Along with the ground covering design, the site plan revives the old eucalyptus road as a pedestrian spine for the new houses. Save this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisRelying on a cut and fill strategy that preserves all the fill on-site, the houses are placed in such a way as not to block each other by lifting the back houses on fill. Emphasizing the path network, shrubs are planted to enhance the experience of approaching the sea.Save this picture!Courtesy of Hashim SarkisProject gallerySee allShow lessLa Sastrería Restaurant / MasquespacioSelected ProjectsBaoshan WTE Exhibition Center / KokaistudiosSelected Projects Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officeHashim SarkisOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesIcebergLebanonPublished on October 12, 2020Cite: “Aamchit Courtowers / Hashim Sarkis ” 12 Oct 2020.

The demonstrators, some of whom brandished AMAL flags, thought that the broadcast and its references to Sadr’s disappearance had insulted the movement’s founder. Al-Jadeed vice-president Karma Khayat told RSF that the protesters injured two cameramen and inflicted considerable material damage on the Al-Jadeed building. The TV channel filed a complaint with the prosecutor-general on 14 February against AMAL members filmed during the attack and against the owners of social networks that incited hatred against Al-Jadeed. “We condemn the acts of violence by demonstrators against this TV channel,” said Alexandra El Khazen, the head of RSF’s Middle East desk. “The Lebanese authorities must investigate this grave incident and must ensure that those responsible for the violence are brought to justice, so that it does not go unpunished and is not thereby tolerated.” The violence intensified on the second day, 14 February, when protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the building and tried to force their way inside. According to Al-Jadeed, they set fire to the entrance, broke windows, smashed a TV camera and inflicted other damage. The violence was condemned by several political leaders including Prime Minister Saad Hariri and President Michel Aoun, who sent troops to help the police put an end to the protests. Information minister Melhem Riachi called the attacks “unacceptable.” “It is not enough that the authorities restored calm,” Al-Jadeed’s vice-president said. “The real measures are those that must be taken at the judicial level to punish the people who attacked Al-Jadeed’s headquarters (…) These attacks are an insult not just to the media and free speech in Lebanon but also to the country’s image.” This is not the first time that Al-Jadeed has been the target of violence. Last July, gunmen opened fire on the office of Tahsin Khayat, the TV channel’s owner and chairman of its board. Lebanon is ranked 98th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2016 World Press Freedom Index.
