General Seminary trustees issue statement

first_img christopher seitz says: Rev. Judith Clausen says: Fr. Gaylord Hitchcock says: David Henry says: October 29, 2014 at 3:40 pm I write with a greatly saddened heart for what has happened at the General Theological Seminary.I have been an ordained priest and GTS graduate since 1967. I have served congregations of thisNYC area with mostly people of color as am I. How do I represent this institution and support itwhen its new dean is alleged to have said such things. Just recently a priest of another seminarytold me how glad he did not go to GTS. What can I say to that? It should be remembered that there are MANY of us who do not have high position but love the Church and its institutions and we serve such year after year Advent – last Pentecost. Clergy and all the laity will need some answers, ones that look to the Cross of Christ and that victory. Faithfully, a Mary Cooke Hoffmansupporter. Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET David Duncan says: October 18, 2014 at 11:31 am What’s truly puzzling here, is how a Dean of GTS with no advanced academic qualifications to speak of, could be allowed to intimidate a distinguished faculty of PhDs. It appears obvious that the board’s inquiry, conducted by a high-end law firm, was limited in its scope, and that the remit was to establish the slippery slope of who said what. In an investigation of this sort, denial or qualification can win the day. This legalistic endeavor was constructed so the board would know as little as possible on an official level about the conditions of faculty employment as established under the current Dean.The Dean’s excuse: “I am human,” does not exonerate him from his responsibilities toward the scholars and students of GTS. It seems obvious that the agenda of dumbing down the GTS educational program can go forward for now. This will rightfully discourage highly qualified prospective faculty and students from applying to GTS for at least a decade. October 17, 2014 at 10:57 pm Eloquently and truthfully said! October 18, 2014 at 11:26 am I am appalled and dismayed at the decisions of the Board yesterday. I have always been proud of my time at GTS, and impressed with the caliber of theological education the seminary has offered. In an atmosphere of distrust and poor leadership, it appears that the Board made its decision to back the Dean without consideration of the concerns of the eight professors fired. To make them come crawling back on their knees for provisional employment is simply unacceptable, and just plain wrong. GTS is losing some of the faculty that form the core of the superb education GTS has always offered in place of keeping a Dean who clearly created an environment too fraught with discord and lack of leadership. Even out of context, as someone above stated, the comments of the Dean are at the least hurtful, and clearly show disregard of the professors and the well-being of the school. I am saddened as I think about the future of the seminary. How can it recover from such a poor decision of the Board to back the Dean and ignore the concerns raised by the “GTS eight?” October 17, 2014 at 10:55 pm The statement of the General Seminary Board of Trustees is a disgrace. The idea that tenured faculty must now petition for “provisional” employment is appalling. They should have been restored to their tenured positions unconditionally as a sign of the Trustees’ desire to put this horrible incident behind them. It is hard to avoid the belief that the General Seminary– of which I am a proud alumnus– can survive. What student would want to go there? What bishop would want to send a student there? What scholar of note would be willing to pull up stakes and accept a professorship there based on the eventual hope of tenure, when the tenure of these distinguished faculty members has been trashed in a stroke by the disgraceful actions of the Board of Trustees? There is only one course of action: reinstate the “General Seminary Eight” immediately and unconditionally, and get back to the business of being the Seminary. Rector Shreveport, LA Bill Borock says: October 17, 2014 at 11:20 pm The board should in all humility resign en masse and ask the entire church community for provisional reinstatement and forgiveness. Very sad indeed. I fear the damage is done and can never be repaired. [General Theological Seminary press release] On October 17, 2014, The General Theological Seminary issues this statement:“Shaping the future leaders of our Church is a responsibility we take very seriously; to that end, the concerns raised by eight members of the Faculty were given full consideration by both the Board of Trustees and the Executive Committee. Our chief goal is a fruitful and fulfilling school year for our students.“We are above all an institution of the Church, and we – both as individuals and as officials of the Seminary – strive to conduct ourselves in a manner befitting our guiding Christian principles. In this spirit, the Board has reviewed the findings of an independent investigation and reached three resolutions.“First, the Board has heard the findings of an independent report and the advice of the Board’s Chancellor, and has concluded after extensive discussion that there are not sufficient grounds for terminating the Very Reverend Kurt Dunkle as President and Dean. We reaffirm our call to him as President and Dean and offer him our continuing support.“Second, all eight Faculty members are invited to request provisional reinstatement as professors of the seminary. Our goal in the immediate term will be to promote an atmosphere of reconciliation so that the Seminary can turn the page and move forward with a full focus on the student body.“The Executive Committee stands ready to meet next week to hear requests of any of the eight former faculty members for reinstatement and to negotiate the terms of their provisional employment for the remainder of the academic year.”“Lastly, the Board commits itself to repairing the significant damage this issue has inflicted upon our Seminary, and calls upon all members of the GTS community – the Board, the Dean, students, Faculty, staff, and alumni – to foster greater accountability, repentance, reconciliation, and healing.“For nearly 200 years, the General Theological Seminary has shaped current and future leaders of our Church. In an ever more challenging and volatile world, our Christian faith is an invaluable beacon that we all must strive to protect. We thank our Executive Committee, our Church leadership, our Faculty, and most of all our students for their continued faith during this challenging time. We commit ourselves to meditate upon these scriptures: Matthew 18:15-20, 2 Corinthians 5:16-20, and Ephesians 2:13-14. Luke Brown says: Rev. Judith Clausen says: Irene Sanders says: Course Director Jerusalem, Israel Submit a Job Listing Cathedral Dean Boise, ID October 18, 2014 at 8:41 pm Hear, hear! “The Church” has consistently bullied and abused those of us who call attention to the emperor’s new clothes. Some years ago, lesbians who wanted to attend General found the way barred by a homophobic dean who later came out as a gay man. A few years later, the Church’s Minorities Officer angrily denounced women seeking ordination for “hanging onto the coat tails” of Blacks. Rectors have been allowed to stay in sinecures despite incompetence, venality, and outright felonies. This is simply another in the endless abuses of power that the organization has fomented, in just the same way that the RCs (and Anglicans in Canada) dealt with pedophilia. As Lord Acton (may or may not have) said, “Power corrupts…” …well, you know the rest. DWLindeman says: Rector Collierville, TN Press Release Service October 17, 2014 at 7:04 pm It is hard to imagine that the Board fully grasps the extent to which this ongoing saga is jeopardizing the seminary. There is nothing in this statement that suggests anything is going to change. It doesn’t matter if the Board cannot find “sufficient grounds” to dismiss the Dean. This matter should have been handled by him and never allowed to get so out of hand as to jeopardize the future of GTS, This is what deans are suppose to do, and he clearly didn’t. Derek Baker says: October 17, 2014 at 8:39 pm Did former presiding bishop Frank Griswold have any role in this meeting and ultimate decision? The above statement does not indicate a wise or well thought out decision.

In his letter on the GTS website, the Dean claimed that the appalling remarks attributed to him were taken out of context. I am unable to imagine any context in which it is appropriate to speak of persons of color doing “interesting things with their hair,” or of “slanty-eyed Asians,” or to say anywhere in public (or at all) “I like vaginas.” I’m embarrassed for GTS, the students, the Church, myself as a GTS alumna, and the Dean. Whatever possessed him? And I understand those were only the surface issues — that much deeper concerns also existed about misuse of power, abusive behavior and bullying. As someone who has been on the receiving end of bullying and abuse of power throughout my ordained ministry, I lament that we, the Church, continue to do little to challenge and change such behavior. I have lost any confidence in the Board and am rethinking any support I can offer GTS if it goes forward as things now are. What a distinguished faculty we had and what a loss! Dan Tootle says: Fr. Gaylord Hitchcock says: Episcopal Church releases new prayer book translations into Spanish and French, solicits feedback Episcopal Church Office of Public Affairs Hoyt Tillman says: October 17, 2014 at 10:34 pm It all reminds me of King Lear, stumbling off into madness. This, the most disturbing of Shakespeare’s plays, shows how the world, after the Fall, continues falling. By the way, I knew a Janet Campbell in Carroll Gardens. You certainly write like the Janet I knew! I have retired after many adventures and misadventures. You may remember a David Duncan, once a seminarian at St. Anne and the Holy Trinity. Hope you are well. Would be happy to receive an email. Tags Trey Gorden says: Lesley Northup says: Rector and Chaplain Eugene, OR October 18, 2014 at 1:04 am As a professor, I wouldn’t ask for re-instatement in a case like this. The board seems intent on humiliating the eight that were fired. Translation: “if you grovel, you may have the pleasure of keeping your job until the end of the year.” That’s nothing but another assertion of power by the board. The board seems unable to admit that it’s dean has any flaws. All the flaws are (apparently) on the faculty side. That, as anyone observing social systems knows, is preposterous. Missioner for Disaster Resilience Sacramento, CA Nicholson White says: October 18, 2014 at 5:43 am If the Dean were a sensitive, aware, thinking Christian, he would resign his post. Or is there something else which has not yet been expressed??

Gary Alexander says: Craig Slane says: Joseph D Herring says: October 18, 2014 at 12:03 am It seems like the decision to hire the fired teacher’s back on a provisional basis is a way for the GTS to have experienced staff to be available for the rest of the academic year.If the eight fired teachers return in a provisional capacity, what happens at the end of the year?Will the GTS be using the current academic year and the break when the academic year ends, to look for replacements for the now provisional teachers.Is there enough reconciliation there for those with the power, to allow true reconciliation on the part of all the players and to allow the fired teachers to get permanent status?I trust that there could be. That would nice…………………………….. I would trust that there would be, if so What happens at the end of the academic year. Will the GTS fire them again and use the time October 17, 2014 at 11:00 pm I have negotiated international relations. I am a certified facilitator. Likely there are many other laity so qualified. Call on us and back off the political acrimony of the ordained, staff and faculty. We have much to contribute and MANY of us are appalled at the lack of our involvement — as we are dedicated to TEC and GTS and have nothing of personal gain, just want the best for seminarians and the future of the oldest Episcopal Seminary in the USA. Bishop Diocesan Springfield, IL Director of Administration & Finance Atlanta, GA Michael Ryan says: October 17, 2014 at 6:32 pm This is shameful, and I am deeply saddened. The Board has failed us all, and the seminary we love and that formed so many of us and to which we have given our time, talent, and treasure over the years is on a precipice that may not hold. I pray for the students who spent the last month in prayer, worry, and deep sadness as they determine what their own next steps must be. I pray for the postulants and bishops who hoped to find in General Seminary a path toward great theological education and formation of future leaders and priests, I pray for the faculty members who have been asked to come pleading on their knees for a small portion of their former jobs, and I pray for this great Church which is about to lose, I fear, its oldest and greatest seminary. May God have mercy on all of us who let this happen. October 17, 2014 at 10:40 pm A sad day for General, for the Episcopal Church, and for the broader Church. I loved my time at General and am so saddened by what appears to be corporate “CYA” and meaningless rhetoric by a board that was probably hand picked by the current dean.A loss of talented and dedicated faculty.It seems that open mindedness, inclusivity, acceptance of the “other”, and genuine dialogue apply only to those who agree with the dean.Shame. October 17, 2014 at 11:32 pm For the first time in my life, I am ashamed of being an Episcopalian. October 17, 2014 at 7:35 pm Part of the GTS board’s statement says: “We are above all an institution of the Church . . . . ” So much for faculty rights here. We may wonder how GTS will be able to recruit top faculty going forward. This outcome is not unexpected, but it’s quite disappointing. This Summer’s Anti-Racism Training Online Course (Diocese of New Jersey) June 18-July 16 October 18, 2014 at 9:47 am There seems to be absolutely no recognition by the GTS Board of Trustees of the damage that is being done to the reputation of the Episcopal Church by this situation. This is a massive failure on the part of the Dean and the Trustees to recognize that GTS must move forward in a progressive manner to be a relevant educator of our clergy. October 25, 2014 at 4:46 pm Best perspective I have heard yet (…said this fellow layperson). I would personally have preferred the board provisionally restore the dean (at most) and unconditionally reinstate the tenured faculty (at least), and not the other way around, just to get my own spoke in; but four-fifths of this impasse seems born of clericalism in the first place — which is probably a broad, pejorative brush stroke nearly impossible to avoid in criticizing decisions taken at a seminary, of all places. Yet all the more reason to broaden the skill, perspective and experience of those working to reach a resolution by seeking out the expertise of the “non-clergy order” in such a situation. John E. Lawrence says: William F. Hammond says: Ya no son extranjeros: Un diálogo acerca de inmigración Una conversación de Zoom June 22 @ 7 p.m. ET Scott Allen says: October 17, 2014 at 6:12 pm This is truly sad, We will no longer have a seminary in NYC as a result of this action…as Berkeley at Yale grad, that makes me sad. General Seminary trustees issue statement Dunkle to be retained, eight professors may request ‘provisional reinstatement’ Featured Jobs & Calls October 20, 2014 at 7:47 am Saint and Sinner! October 18, 2014 at 1:55 pm This entire business is a blot not only on GTS’s venerable and honored name, but on the mindlessly structured process apparently at work. The Board’s action is as unfathomable as the actions of the Dean leading to the now-tragically resolved impasse. Is this the best that the Board and Bishop Griswold could manage? I can’t imagine circumstances under which these distiguished and respected teachers would go, hat in hand, to the very individuals who have cast them aside, pleading for a provisional faculty appointment, whatever that may precisely be. Having begun selling off the real estate in Chelsea, now it appears that the very stature of GTS is next on the chopping block. A sad day indeed….Was there not a creative way for the Board to respect their appointment, however ill-conceived, of the Dean while honoring the ministries and gifts of the now-dangling teachers? October 18, 2014 at 12:40 am What a shameful and sad spectacle! Rector Tampa, FL The Church Pension Fund Invests $20 Million in Impact Investment Fund Designed to Preserve Workforce Housing Communities Nationwide Church Pension Group October 20, 2014 at 11:31 am I am astounded by what has happened at GST, and further astounded by the intransigence and heavy-handedness of the board. I would have expected more and better of them, particularly the Rt. Rev. Mark Sisk, who up until now I had greatly respected. For me this inadequate and unsettling statement by the board does nothing but confirm that they have handled this matter in a shameful and disgraceful way, and in so doing have done severe and possibly permanent damage to the institution they were appointed to oversee. The fact that Dean Dunkle is apparently exonerated of all responsibility for this crisis, or accountability for his statements, defies belief. An Evening with Presiding Bishop Curry and Iconographer Kelly Latimore Episcopal Migration Ministries via Zoom June 23 @ 6 p.m. ET October 18, 2014 at 2:33 pm I’m sad that The Episcopal Church, an institution that showed me a way forward in my faith at a time when I so desperately needed one, seems serially to fall prey to these bewildering lapses in leadership. I was a member of the parish in question when Rev. Campbell and her colleagues were suffering through the sort of crisis she describes. I have tried to tell myself in the intervening years that this was an isolated incident in an essentially healthy Church, but the actions of Dean Dunkle and the GTS Board offer grim confirmation of what so many of my brothers and sisters have been trying to tell me all along: The Episcopal Church and its mission are suffering at the hands of those called to lead us. In-person Retreat: Thanksgiving Trinity Retreat Center (West Cornwall, CT) Nov. 24-28 October 17, 2014 at 7:52 pm This is appalling. Shame on the Board.

Inflicting a new wound to the body of Christ! Unless a spirit of repentance, forgiveness and reconciliation prevails, and strident voices, punitive actions and pride of position desist, a 200 year old community of faith and learning will cease to exist. Terrible as the recent financial crises have been, the crisis in human relationships that presently prevails is potentially more destructive, and the cynical world will again have cause to comment “see how those Christians love one another!” October 17, 2014 at 9:36 pm Dunkle “success” in the parish is irrelevant.

The residential mass is divided into two separate blocks keeping the Garden and Courtyard continuous. We developed a layout with open spaces running parallel to the indoor residential spaces. This also allowed for getting in maximum daylight and providing better cross-ventilation opportunities. At the entrance, one is greeted by a play of a low height Gable roof and a narrow vertical double heighten space. Light is taken from above, which brightens the entire narrow space. Tactfully designed Scissor truss with sleek mild steel members holds the roof above and living space below.Save this picture!© Inclined StudioThe Delicate scissor truss against the Simple bold tower, displays a contrasting and evocative Entrance facade set in the green open space. The design layout is about interconnected spaces and interconnected volumes. Internally all the spaces are free flowing within one another. The volume of the formal living is connected with the main house spaces on only one side, leaving all the three sides open and gets connected to the Garden.Save this picture!The middle double height volume takes the Family room and the Dinning spaces. Interestingly, this double height volume is sandwiched between two open spaces provides very good cross-ventilation in the living room area, where maximum time is spent by the family members. The bridge acts as an interesting element within the double height volume. The Formal living room and sleeping spaces on the First floor hold the Gable roof. The Scissor truss provides uninterrupted clear openings at the two ends. Both the gable ends are kept transparent and protected by clear glass.Save this picture!© Inclined StudioThis allows a good clear view of the sky from the inner spaces. The eaves of the gable roof have been worked out in such a manner that it gives the sense of floating roof. This quality is achieved by providing clear glass windows between the eaves and the wall. As the Gable roof is kept floating, natural light enters the inner space from all the four sides. The natural light changes throughout the day and during different seasons. This makes the experience within these inner spaces richer and mesmerizing. The Gable house provides a rich variety of spaces, which can be enjoyed during different times of the day and in different seasons.

Cyber-dissident Zouhair Yahyaoui completes a year in prison

first_img Organisation November 12, 2019 Find out more TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa November 11, 2020 Find out more News RSF_en TunisiaMiddle East – North Africa Eleven organizations from civil society create the Forum on Information & Democracy, a structural response to information disorder Follow the news on Tunisia Reporters Without Borders called for the release of jailed cyber-dissident Zouhair Yahyaoui today, the first anniversary of his arrest in an Internet café. The founder of the website TUNeZINE, Yahyaoui is serving a two-year prison sentence. He recently began another hunger strike.”We call on President Zine el-Abidine Ben Ali to release Zouhair Yahyaoui immediately and unconditionally,” Reporters Without Borders Robert Ménard said. “This young man has staged three hunger strikes since the start of the year and could suffer serious aftereffects if he is not released soon.”Reporters Without Borders also called for the release of journalist Hamadi Jebali, who has been imprisoned since 1991.When Yahyaoui received a visit from his family in Borj el Amri prison (30 km from Tunis) on 22 May, he had to cut short the conversation because he was so weak. “The publicity about his arrest and the campaigns for his release in both Tunisia and abroad have just fuelled official resentment and vindictiveness”, according to his family, which says he is the victim of “discriminatory treatment.”The guards dirty his food. He is banned from reading books. His correspondences is stolen. He is denied his daily exercise. He is threatened by his guards. Yahyaoui has often told his family he could not stand the conditions of his detention and has staged three hungers strikes so far this year to protest against this “inhuman treatment.” Following his arrest on 4 June 2002 by plain-clothes police in an Internet café, Yahyaoui was subjected to interrogation that included three sessions of “suspension,” a form of torture in which the victim is suspended by the arms with his feet barely touching the ground. The Tunis appeal court sentenced him on 10 July 2002 to two years in prison for “spreading false news.” As a writer, Yahyaoui used the pseudonym “Ettounsi,” which means Tunisian in Arabic. He created the TUNeZINE website in July 2001 to distribute opposition documents online and thereby provide information about the fight for democracy and freedoms in Tunisia. He was one of the first to distribute a letter to the president by Judge Mokhtar Yahyaoui criticising the judicial system.Hamadi Jebali was the editor of Al Fajr, the mouthpiece of the Islamic movement Ennahda. Jailed in 1991, he initially served a one-year sentence for an article criticizing the system of military courts. Then, in 1992, he was sentenced by the Tunis military court to 16 years imprisonment for “aggressive intention to change the nature of the state” and “belonging to an illegal organisation”. He was transferred from Sfax prison to Bizerte prison in March.Reporters Without Borders created a system of sponsorships more than 13 years ago, calling on news media to sponsor journalists in prison. Some 120 news organisations throughout the world sponsor detained journalists by regularly asking the authorities to release them and by publicising their situation, so that they are not forgotten.Zouhair Yahyaoui is sponsored by Avaldoci, the Marseille Press Club, the Périgord Press Club, the Periódico de Catalunya, Fraternitaire, El Triangle, Le Nouvelliste, liberation.fr, Maison de la Presse de Mons, Radio Populare, REE and www.categorynet.com, festival du FIGRA.Hamadi Jebali is sponsored by the Toulon Press Club. to go furthercenter_img Help by sharing this information News Forum on Information and Democracy 250 recommendations on how to stop “infodemics” News Receive email alerts News June 3, 2003 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Cyber-dissident Zouhair Yahyaoui completes a year in prison Tunisia : RSF asks Tunisian president’s office to respect journalists December 26, 2019 Find out morelast_img read more

Caltech, MIT Awarded $20.4 Million to Upgrade Project That Detected Ripples in Space and Time

Credit: Caltech/MIT/LIGO LabThe National Science Foundation (NSF) is awarding Caltech and MIT $20.4 million to upgrade the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-wave Observatory (LIGO), an NSF-funded project that made history in 2015 after making the first direct detection of ripples in space and time, called gravitational waves.The investment is part of a joint international effort in collaboration with UK Research and Innovation and the Australian Research Council, which are contributing additional funds. While LIGO is scheduled to turn back on this spring, in its third run of the “Advanced LIGO” phase, the new funding will go toward “Advanced LIGO Plus.”Advanced LIGO Plus is expected to commence operations in 2024 and to increase the volume of deep space the observatory can survey by as much as seven times.“I’m extremely excited about the future prospects that the Advanced LIGO Plus upgrade affords gravitational-wave astrophysics,” said Caltech’s David Reitze, executive director of LIGO. “With it we expect to detect gravitational waves from black hole mergers on a daily basis, greatly increasing our understanding of this dark sector of the universe. Gravitational-wave observations of neutron star collisions, now very rare, will become much more frequent, allowing us to more deeply probe the structure of their exotic interiors.”Since LIGO’s first detection of gravitational waves from the violent collision of two black holes, it has observed nine additional black hole mergers and one collision of two dense, dead stars called neutron stars. The neutron star merger gave off not just gravitational waves but light waves, detected by dozens of telescopes in space and on the ground. The observations confirmed that heavy elements in our universe, such as platinum and gold, are created in neutron star smashups like this one.“This award ensures that NSF’s LIGO, which made the first historic detection of gravitational waves in 2015, will continue to lead in gravitational-wave science for the next decade,” said Anne Kinney, assistant director for NSF’s Mathematical and Physical Sciences Directorate, in a statement. “With improvements to the detectors—which include techniques from quantum mechanics that refine laser light and new mirror coating technology—the twin LIGO observatories will significantly increase the number and strength of their detections. Advanced LIGO Plus will reveal gravity at its strongest and matter at its densest in some of the most extreme environments in the cosmos. These detections may reveal secrets from inside supernovae and teach us about extreme physics from the first seconds after the universe’s birth.”Michael Zucker, the Advanced LIGO Plus leader and co-principal investigator, and a scientist at the LIGO Laboratory, operated by Caltech and MIT, said, “I’m thrilled that NSF, UK Research, and Innovation and the Australian Research Council are joining forces to make this key investment possible. Advanced LIGO has altered the course of astrophysics with 11 confirmed gravitational-wave events over the last three years. Advanced LIGO Plus can expand LIGO’s horizons enough to capture this many events each week, and it will enable powerful new probes of extreme nuclear matter as well as Albert Einstein’s general theory of relativity.”LIGO is funded by NSF and operated by Caltech and MIT, which conceived of LIGO and led the Initial and Advanced LIGO projects. Financial support for the Advanced LIGO project was led by the NSF, with Germany (Max Planck Society), the U.K. (Science and Technology Facilities Council), and Australia (Australian Research Council-OzGrav) making significant commitments and contributions to the project. More than 1,200 scientists from around the world participate in the effort through the LIGO Scientific Collaboration, which includes the GEO Collaboration. A list of additional partners is available at https://my.ligo.org/census.php. LIGO partners with the European Virgo gravitational-wave detector and its collaboration, consisting of more than 300 physicists and engineers belonging to 28 different European research groups.

HMS Hampshire wreck to be surveyed off Scotland

first_img Scotland’s University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute will, together with ORCA Marine and Seatronics, survey the wreck of HMS Hampshire off Orkney, Scotland.Royal Navy’s former Devonshire-class armored cruiser HMS Hampshire struck a mine on June 5, 1916, while transporting Lord Kitchener, the secretary of State for War to Archangel in northern Russia for a meeting with Tsar Nicholas II.The vessel sank within twenty minutes, with the loss of 737 lives, including Lord Kitchener. Only 12 of the company survived. The German U-boat U-75 laid the mine on May 29, 1916 off Marwick Head in Orkney.HMS Hampshire was completed in 1905. Joining the Grand Fleet in January 1915 she played a minimal role in Battle of Jutland from the 31st May to the 1st June 1916, before being assigned to the transport of Lord Kitchener.Presently, the wreck lies upside down in approximately 60 meters of water, surrounded by a large debris field. The HMS Hampshire site was designated in 2002, under the Protection of Military Remains Act 1986. There have previously only been two remote surveys of the wreck since the salvage activities of 1977 to 1983.The condition assessment of HMS Hampshire will be the first extensive mapping of the wreck site since her sinking in 1916. It is a collaborative project between ORCA Marine, University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute and Seatronics, an Acteon company. It aims to assess the condition of the wreck a hundred years after she sank, documenting the impact of salvage activities and environmental factors on the integrity of the remains.Sandra Henry, University of the Highlands and Islands Archaeology Institute, Marine Archaeologist, said “It is really significant in the run up to the centenary of the HMS Hampshire to carry out a condition survey and map the extent of the wreck site. This survey is being undertaken as a mark of respect and remembrance for those who lost their lives aboard, and all those who lost their lives at sea during the First World War.”Alistair Coutts, Senior Sales & Business Development Manager, Seatronics, said “We are delighted to be collaborating on this exciting project on this historic anniversary. Our aim is to use our Predator inspection class ROV to survey the wreckage along with the latest 2D & 3D scanning technology to identify key areas of interest, providing informative imagery and insight into the current conditions of the site.“ May 6, 2016 Authorities View post tag: ORCA Marine Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Hampshire wreck to be surveyed off Scotland View post tag: HMS Hampshire HMS Hampshire wreck to be surveyed off Scotland View post tag: Seatronics Share this articlelast_img read more
