The Episcopal Church in South Carolina announced today that federal Judge Richard Gergel has lifted the stay in the case before him. It had been on stay since Aug. 30, 2017, as part of a mediation process. This means the federal case of VonROSENBERG V. LAWRENCE will proceed in the U.S. District Court, in Charleston. The Church side is arguing that Lawrence is in violation of federal trademark laws as he claims to be the legitimate bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. It appears that a trail in the federal court will be held later this year.

The majority of the court ruled (Aug. 2, 2018 and reaffirmed Nov. 17, 2018) that the Episcopal Church and the Church diocese hold trust control over 29 of the 36 parishes in question. Since then, the independent diocese has used three tactics in a strategy to of delay the implementation of the decision: 1-use of federal court ordered mediation. The federal judge ordered this on Aug. 30. Three meetings have taken place over five months with no sign of progress; 2-the independent diocese filed a new lawsuit in state circuit court claiming payment from the Church side under the “betterments statute.” The Church diocese has asked the court to dismiss this as a frivolous lawsuit; 3-the independent diocese’s appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, made Feb.9, 2018. In addition, there is an ongoing federal lawsuit (U.S. District Court in Charleston) in which the Church bishop is suing the breakaway bishop claiming trademark infringement under the Lanham Act. In short, the Church is asking the federal court to recognize the Church bishop as the legitimate bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina. This case is on “stay” pending the outcome of the mediation. Trial is expected later this year. Even if the Church diocese prevails in federal court, the breakaway side can appeal to the U.S. Court of Appeals gaining another year or more of delay. Altogether, the litigation between the Church side and the independent diocese could continue for another several years.

They disagreed with the wider Episcopal Church about biblical authority and theology, primarily centered on the full inclusion of LGBT people in the life of the church.The Episcopal Church in South Carolina noted on its website that the petition had been filed with the U.S. Supreme Court but offered no comment.A writ of certiorari asks the Supreme Court to review a lower court ruling. Filing a writ does not mean the high court will agree to take the case. The court receives more than 7,000 petitions and accepts between 100 and 150 cases, according to information from the federal court system. The Supreme Court usually agrees to consider cases that could have national significance, might harmonize conflicting decisions in the federal circuit courts and/or could have precedential value.Litigation surrounding the 2012 break has been multileveled and very contentious. The Episcopalians chose to call themselves The Episcopal Church in South Carolina in early 2013 in response to a temporary restraining order that prevented them from using the diocesan seal and the names “The Protestant Episcopal Church in the Diocese of South Carolina,” “The Diocese of South Carolina” and “The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina.”That issue has not yet been settled and the breakaway group calls itself the Diocese of South Carolina.The breakaway group filed suit in January 2013 against the Episcopal Church. The diocese entered the lawsuit later. After a three-week trial in July 2014, Circuit Court Judge Diane S. Goodstein ruled in February 2015 that the breakaway group had the right to hold onto the diocesan name and property, including individual church buildings.The state Supreme Court agreed in April 2015 to consider the case. The remaining Episcopalians offered in June 2015 to let 35 parishes keep their church properties, whether or not they choose to remain part of the Episcopal Church.In exchange, the proposal required the breakaway group to return the diocesan property, assets and identity of “The Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina” to the diocese that is still affiliated with the Episcopal Church. The breakaway group rejected the offer the day it was made public.The court took more than two years to issue its ruling, which came Aug. 2, 2017, and was against most of the breakaway group’s claims. The justices said 29 of the congregations specifically agreed to abide by the Episcopal Church’s “Dennis Canon” (Canon 1.7.4), which states that a parish holds its property in trust for the diocese and the Episcopal Church. That agreement means they cannot retain church property. However, they said that eight congregations had not agreed to the canon and thus could keep those properties.The diocesan St. Christopher Camp and Conference Center on Seabrook Island must also be returned to the Episcopal Church.On Nov. 17, 2017, the court denied the breakaway group’s request that it reconsider its ruling. The group said Nov. 21 that it would ask the nation’s highest court to review the state high court’s decision.That same day, the group also filed a new lawsuit in the same county court in which it began its original lawsuit. The new filing in Dorchester County cites a “betterments statute” to seek compensation from the Episcopal Church in South Carolina and the Episcopal Church for the cost of improvements made to the properties over the years, according an announcement from The Episcopal Church in South Carolina.The Episcopalians in December asked the state court in Dorchester County to dismiss the new action.– The Rev.

To avoid humans, more wildlife now work the night shift

Please enter your email address here Florida gas prices jump 12 cents; most expensive since 2014 By Kaitlyn Gaynor, Ph.D. Candidate in Environmental Science, Policy and Management, University of California, Berkeley, and first published on theconversation.com.For their first 100 million years on planet Earth, our mammal ancestors relied on the cover of darkness to escape their dinosaur predators and competitors. Only after the meteor-induced mass extinction of dinosaurs 66 million years ago could these nocturnal mammals explore the many wondrous opportunities available in the light of day.Fast forward to the present, and the honeymoon in the sun may be over for mammals. They’re increasingly returning to the protection of night to avoid the Earth’s current terrifying super-predator: Homo sapiens.My colleagues and I have made the first effort to measure the global effects of human disturbance on the daily activity patterns of wildlife. In our new study in the journal Science, we documented a powerful and widespread process by which mammals alter their behavior alongside people: Human disturbance is creating a more nocturnal natural world.Many catastrophic effects of humans on wildlife communities have been well-documented: We are responsible for habitat destruction and overexploitation that have imperiled animal populations around the world. However, just our presence alone can have important behavioral impacts on wildlife, even if these effects aren’t immediately apparent or easy to quantify. Many animals fear humans: We can be large, noisy, novel and dangerous. Animals often go out of their way to avoid encountering us. But it’s becoming more and more challenging for wildlife to seek out human-free spaces, as the human population grows and our footprint expands across the planet.A badger explores a South London cemetery at night. Laurent Geslin. For use only with this article.Global increase in nocturnalityMy collaborators and I noticed a striking pattern in some of our own data from research in Tanzania, Nepal and Canada: animals from impala to tigers to grizzly bears seemed to be more active at night when they were around people. Once the idea was on our radar, we began to see it throughout the published scientific literature.It appeared to be a common global phenomenon; we set out to see just how widespread this effect was. Might animals all over the world be adjusting their daily activity patterns to avoid humans in time, given that it is becoming harder to avoid us in space?To explore this question, we conducted a meta-analysis, or a study of studies. We systematically scoured the published literature for peer-reviewed journal articles, reports and theses that documented the 24-hour activity patterns of large mammals. We focused on mammals because their need for plenty of space often brings them into contact with humans, and they possess traits that allow for some flexibility in their activity.We needed to find examples that provided data for areas or seasons of low human disturbance – that is, more natural conditions – and high human disturbance. For example, studies compared deer activity in and out of the hunting season, grizzly bear activity in areas with and without hiking, and elephant activity inside protected areas and outside among rural settlement.Based on reported data from remote camera traps, radio collars or observations, we determined each species’ nocturnality, which we defined as the percentage of the animal’s total activity that occurred between sunset and sunrise. We then quantified the difference in nocturnality between low and high disturbance to understand how animals changed their activity patterns in response to people.For each species, researchers compared the animals’ active periods when people are nearby to when people aren’t around. The distance between the grey and red dot pair for each animal shows how extreme the shift in nocturnality. Reprinted with permission from Gaynor et al., Science 360:1232 (2018). For use only with this article.Overall, for the 62 species in our study, mammals were 1.36 times as nocturnal in response to human disturbance. An animal that naturally split its activity evenly between the day and night, for example, would increase its nighttime activity to 68 percent around people.While we expected to find a trend toward increased wildlife nocturnality around people, we were surprised by the consistency of the results around the world. Eighty-three percent of the case studies we examined showed some increase in nocturnal activity in response to disturbance. Our finding was consistent across species, continents and habitat types. Antelope on the savanna of Zimbabwe, tapir in the Ecuadorian rainforests, bobcats in the American southwest deserts – all seemed to be doing what they could to shift their activity to the cover of darkness.Perhaps most surprisingly, the pattern also held across different types of human disturbance, including activities such as hunting, hiking, mountain biking, and infrastructure such as roads, residential settlement and agriculture. Animals responded strongly to all activities, regardless of whether people actually posed a direct threat. It seems human presence alone is enough to disrupt their natural patterns of behavior. People may think our outdoor recreation leaves no trace, but our mere presence can have lasting consequences.Future of human-wildlife coexistenceWe don’t yet understand the consequences of this dramatic behavioral shift for individual animals or populations. Over millions of years, many of the animals included in our study have evolved adaptations to living in the daylight.Sun bears retreat from the sunny hours when people are nearby. Hakumakuma/ShutterstockSun bears, for example, are typically diurnal and sun-loving creatures; in undisturbed areas less than 20 percent of their activity occurred at the night. But they increased their nocturnality to 90 percent in areas of the Sumatran forest where intensive forest research activity created a disturbance.Such diurnally adapted animals may not be as successful at finding food, avoiding predators or communicating in the darkness, which could even reduce their survival or reproduction.However, because our mammalian ancestors evolved under the cover of darkness in the time of the dinosaurs, most mammal species possess traits that allow for some flexibility in their activity patterns. As long as animals are able to meet their needs during the night, they may actually thrive in human-dominated landscapes by avoiding daytime direct encounters with people that could potentially be dangerous for both parties. In Nepal, for example, tigers and people share the exact same trails in the forest at different times of day, reducing direct conflict between humans and these large carnivores. Dividing up the day, through what researchers call temporal partitioning, may be a mechanism by which people and wildlife can coexist on an ever more crowded planet.An increase in nocturnality among certain species may also have far-reaching consequences for ecosystems, reshaping species interactions and cascading through food webs. In California’s Santa Cruz Mountains, coyotes are becoming more nocturnal in areas with human recreation. By analyzing coyote scat, scientists have linked this behavioral change to dietary shifts from diurnal to nocturnal prey, with implications for small mammal communities and for competition with other predators.European beaver active at night in Orléans, France. Laurent Geslin. For use only with this article.Working on this study reminded me that people aren’t alone on the planet. Even if we don’t see large mammals while we’re out and about during the day, they may still be living alongside us, asleep while we are awake and vice versa. In areas where threatened species live, managers may consider restricting human activity to certain times of the day, leaving some daylight just for wildlife.And it is likely that we need to preserve wilderness areas entirely free of human disturbance to conserve the most vulnerable and sensitive mammal species. Not all animals are willing or able to just switch to a nocturnal lifestyle around people. Those that try to avoid human disturbance entirely may be most vulnerable to the consequences of the expanding human footprint. Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Please enter your name here Gov.

Some extracts from these discussions show a desire to silence the journalist and influence a “defamation” case against her, the press freedom organisation said.“If they are confirmed, these conversations show the intention to destroy the career and reputation of Lydia Cacho Ribeiro”, it said. “We call on the judicial authorities of Quintana Roo province in eastern Mexico responsible for investigating and trying Lydia Cacho for defamation in a case brought by José Camel Nacif, to be extremely vigilant in the face of political pressure that is being applied to this case.”“We also urge that these recordings be authenticated as quickly as possible and that, if necessary, an investigation is opened into the political figures involved,” it added.The daily La Jornada and W Radio on 14 February published and broadcast the contents of 12 telephone recordings delivered to the two media by an anonymous messenger.The series of recordings are of several phone conversations in which José Camel Nacif, speaks in turn to the governor of Puebla in central Mexico, Mario Marín, and Pablo Salazar Mendiguchía of Chiapas in the south; to other textile bosses, including “Hubert”, a French national; Luis Angel Casas, financial co-ordinator of Mario Marin’s election campaign; Lebanese compatriot, Hanna Nakad Bayeh, known as “Juanito”; and with a journalist on a national daily and radio, with the first name Andrés or “Muñeco”.These recordings, of which Reporters Without Borders has received a copy of the transcripts, show a clear and concerted intention to bring down Lydia Cacho Ribeiro. The journalist is being sued for libel by José Camel Nacif, after she referred to his alleged involvement in a paedophile ring in her 2004 book The Demons of Eden.According to the recordings, José Camel Nacif had apparently struck a deal with the authorities in Puebla state where the libel case was first lodged, for Lydia Cacho to be imprisoned. She was detained there in December 2005 for 24 hours . The discussions are often very insulting, even obscene and one of them turns out to be threatening. José Camel Nacif raises the question of the journalist’s conditions of detention and says he hopes she will be sexually abused in prison.In these same recordings, he also raised the impact her trial could have on that of Jean Succar Kuri, a Lebanese friend, currently imprisoned in the United States for his alleged involvement in the paedophile network the journalist exposed.Valentin Meneses, spokesman for the governor, Mario Marín, refused to confirm if one of the voices on the recording was that of the governor. During an interview given to W Radio, Meneses said that the recordings violated the laws on protection of private life and said Marín had nothing to do with the case.The broadcasting of the recordings provoked an outcry in Mexico. Felipe Calderón, a member of the National Action Party (PAN) of head of state Vicente Fox and a candidate for the presidential elections of 2 July 2006, has called for an investigation to be opened.

Up RT-PCR Testing; Bring Dedicated Ambulances, ICUs: Sikkim High Court Urges State To Take Steps On A War Footing Against Covid19

first_imgNews UpdatesUp RT-PCR Testing; Bring Dedicated Ambulances, ICUs: Sikkim High Court Urges State To Take Steps On A War Footing Against Covid19 LIVELAW NEWS NETWORK17 May 2021 8:49 AMShare This – xThe Sikkim High Court has urged the State Government take all necessary steps to augment its resources to meet the present situation of Covid-19 pandemic on a “war footing”. A Division Bench of Chief Justice Jitendra Kumar Maheshwari and Justice Bhaskar Raj Pradhan has taken note of various shortcomings in the medical resources in Sikkim. Firstly, it has expressed concern over non-availability of testing Labs, purportedly due to lack of trained manpower, including Microbiologists. “In a state of the present pandemic, it has been noticed that RT-PCR test is of vital importance. We are, therefore, of the view that the State Government must take urgent and immediate steps to provide RT-PCR testing facilities, at least, in the four District Hospitals and for the said purpose, take up such steps to augment their resources including employing trained manpower and Microbiologists,” it said. Secondly, the Court noted that there is no Covid ICU at District Hospitals in Namchi, Mangan and Singtam (near Gangtok) (capital cities of 3/4 districts in the State). “We are of the view that dedicated Covid-19 wards and ICU facilities should be provided in all the District Hospitals, including Singtam, with oxygen and ventilator support,” the Court has ordered. So far as supply of medical Oxygen in the State is concerned, the Court has asked the Government to come out with a specific time line for setting up of proposed PSA (Pressure Swing Absorption) Oxygen Generating Plant and the proposal for obtaining D –Type and B-Type Oxygen Cylinders. Further, the Bench noted that the State has 63 ambulances however, there are no details regarding the facilities available in such ambulances. “We are concerned about the non-availability of covid-19 dedicated and fully equipped ambulances with oxygen and paramedic support for the District Hospitals,” it said. The Court has granted a weeks’ time to the State, to respond to the above issues in the form of an affidavit. The matter is now listed for hearing on May 25.
