This report is wrong.Each of us attended the entire ACC-16 meeting and voted on every resolution that came before the body, including a number that concerned the doctrine and polity of the Anglican Communion. As the duly elected ACC members of a province of the Anglican Communion, this was our responsibility and we fulfilled it.It could be inferred from today’s ACNS story that we did not fulfill our voting responsibilities at ACC-16 to comply with a communique issued by the primates of the Anglican Communion in January 2016.  The communique sought to impose consequences on the Episcopal Church for its adoption of marriage equality at our 2015 General Convention. Such an inference would be incorrect.At the beginning of ACC-16, the Standing Committee of the Anglican Communion issued a statement saying that it had “considered the Communiqué from the Primates and affirmed the relational links between the Instruments of Communion in which each Instrument, including the Anglican Consultative Council, forms its own views and has its own responsibilities.” After ACC-16 had concluded, six outgoing members of the Standing Committee released a letter reasserting that “ACC16 neither endorsed nor affirmed the consequences contained in the Primates’ Communiqué.”As members of the Anglican Consultative Council, we thank God for the time we have spent with sisters and brothers in Christ from across the globe, and for the breadth and diversity of our global Anglican family. We are firmly committed to the Episcopal Church’s full participation in the Anglican Communion, and we hope that, in the future, our participation will be reported accurately by the Anglican Communion News Service.Rosalie Simmonds BallentineIan T.

What experts want you to know about the worst flu season…

first_imgShare on Facebook Tweet on Twitter You have entered an incorrect email address! Please enter your email address here The 2017-2018 flu season rages on, showing no signs yet of slowing down. Hospitals around the country, including our own, have been inundated with record numbers of outpatient flu cases. Nationwide, there have been thousands of hospitalizations and, tragically, at least 37 child deaths.Adding insult to injury, a study released last week brought bad news about how flu is spread. Observing 142 flu-infected patients as they breathed, coughed and sneezed, scientists found that simply breathing contaminated the air around them with the infectious flu virus.Dr. Timothy Hendrix, medical director of Florida Hospital Centra Care urgent care centers, says the study isn’t all that surprising. “Influenza is airborne, which means coughing, sneezing, breathing,” he says. Rather than striking new fears in an already jumpy public, what the study should do, he says, is remind everyone that the best defense against the flu is the flu vaccine.We asked Dr. Hendrix for more advice for navigating this grim flu season. Read on for his expert answers to frequently asked questions about symptoms, treatment and whether or not it’s ever “too late” to get your flu shot.Question #1: Is this flu season really more dangerous or deadly?With all the terrifying and tragic news stories, you may feel like this season’s virus is particularly deadly. Not so, says Dr. Hendrix. While it is severe – one of the most widespread flu seasons in years – that doesn’t necessarily mean a higher risk of complications or death.“The CDC (U.S. Centers for Disease Control & Prevention) predicted this would be a severe season, and they were right,” says Dr. Hendrix. “Severity is the number of people falling ill, but there hasn’t been a higher rate of hospitalizations or mortality.”Highly publicized cases of deaths, particularly among young and healthy people, can amplify that perception. In reality, according to Dr. Hendrix, the rates of hospitalizations and deaths are actually on par with past flu seasons.Question #2: Has flu season peaked?If you asked Dr. Hendrix this question two weeks ago, he would have had a very different answer. But numbers from even the last few days still show steadily climbing rates, with a spike last week in every Florida county.“Over the weekend, it looked like things were declining,” he says. “We were still seeing 200 patients a day [at Centra Care Urgent Care], but Monday came around and we were at 279 patients.”That number, 279, sets a new Centra Care record for the number of flu patients treated in a single day. (The old record, 271, was set just last week.)As for when we can expect those numbers to fall, that’s anyone’s guess. But even after flu season has peaked, Dr. Hendrix warns there’s still a ways to go: “We’re right in the thick of flu season. There’s at least another 10-12 weeks of flu activity left. It’s not going away anytime soon.”Question #3: What’s the best way for me to protect myself?Two words: get vaccinated.Even this late in the flu season, the CDC still recommends flu shots for those who haven’t gotten one. Florida Hospital and Centra Care urgent care centers still have flu shots, and will continue to administer them as long as they are available.“It is not too late to get your shot,” Dr. Hendrix says. “It takes two weeks to reach peak immunity [in the body], which will protect you for the latter half of the flu season.”The benefits of a flu vaccine are twofold: it helps prevent you from catching the flu, and makes the illness shorter and less severe if you do.Question #4: Can’t I just stay home if I have the flu virus?Without a doubt, if you have the flu virus you should stay home from work or school to prevent spreading it to others. But because of incubation periods, you may be contagious before even realizing you’re sick. That means “just staying home” may not be enough.“We should remind everybody that before you get symptoms of the flu, in that 24 hours before you get sick, you are spreading the flu to people around you,” says Dr. Hendrix.Question #5: If I suspect I have flu, should I go to the doctor or ride it out?Even if you’re young and healthy with no pre-existing medical conditions, Dr. Hendrix still recommends going to the doctor for Tamiflu – preferably within 48 hours of onset of symptoms, when the medicine will be most effective.“Tamiflu will shorten the course [of the flu] and get you feeling better faster,” he explains. “It’s the only antiviral that’s effective against the flu virus, and will help limit the spread of flu in the community.”There’s essentially no upside to riding it out. Not only will you be a greater risk to the people around you, you’ll be miserable for up to a week and risk dangerous complications.Question #6: How do I tell if my flu virus has become a medical emergency?“It’s not unusual to hear about unexpected deaths in healthy individuals with no pre-existing medical problems,” says Dr. Hendrix. “That’s why it’s important to recognize when it’s getting bad.”The tell-tale signs of flu are a fever, body aches, chills and a cough – that’s all typical, Dr. Hendrix says. If you develop a severe headache, vomiting, extreme lethargy, difficulty breathing (including shortness of breath or tightness in the chest), or you’re unable to eat or take any liquids, then you should get to the doctor, an urgent care clinic or emergency room.“These symptoms could be an indication that you’re becoming septic, or that pneumonia may be developing,” Dr. Hendrix says. Both of these conditions are extremely serious, and potentially deadly if left untreated. It’s especially important to get medical attention if you have an underlying condition.Question #7: How do I know if it’s the flu or something else?You may have read recent news stories about adenovirus, which can cause symptoms similar to influenza. While the name may be unfamiliar, you probably know it by another moniker: the common cold.“There are other viruses out there, that’s why it’s called cold and flu season,” says Dr. Hendrix. Adenovirus is one of up to 200 different types of cold virus, and it can also cause conjunctivitis of the eye. It’s highly contagious, spread the same way as flu, but complications are rare.“Adenovirus is less severe than the flu, you’re not going to have the high fever,” Dr. Hendrix says. “If you’re coughing and sneezing, but don’t have a fever, it’s probably O.K. stay home and drink your chicken soup.”Save time and money with a virtual visit to the doctor.

Eleven days were dropped so in subsequent years, Christmas was celebrated 11 days earlier.Many people, especially, those in rural areas, continued to recognize the holidays of the Julian calendar so Jan. 6 became known as Old Christmas. Old Christmas: Historic Clay Hill Church hosts traditional candlelight service to end season Lawrence Bowden has participated in Old Christmas as a Wise Man since BUMC began the celebration nearly 20 years ago.“Old Christmas is a service that I look forward to every year,” Bowden said. “It’s inspiring – the scriptures and the songs – and it’s a fitting end to the Christmas season.”Bowden said being one of the Wise Men is a simple thing but it’s an honor to be a part of hearing the story of the Christ Child’s birth and the arrival of the Wise Men.“Old Christmas is a recalling of the events surrounding Jesus’ birth,” he said. “The Wise Men or the Three Kings came to worship Baby Jesus and brought gifts to honor him. When they left, they went another way so as not to endanger the Christ Child. That’s a wonderful story and one worth telling again and again.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebrationlast_img read more

Suspect in fatal University of Utah shooting found dead after manhunt

first_imgiStock/Thinkstock(SALT LAKE CITY) — The University of Utah community is grieving after an “accomplished” student athlete was shot dead on campus Monday night, the school said.Lauren McCluskey, of Washington state, was found dead in a parked car on campus, witnesses told police, who have not announced a motive for the killing.McCluskey, a senior majoring in communication, was on the track and field team, the university said.The suspected shooter, Melvin Rowland, who killed himself, may have been an ex-boyfriend, authorities said.Rowland, 37, a registered sex offender, had been seen fleeing the Medical Towers, a dorm near the university’s northeastern edge, around the time of the shooting, authorities said.Rowland wasn’t a student there, police said.“They chased him to this location, where they found that he had forced entry into the church,” University of Utah Police Services Lt. Brian Wahlin said. “After clearing the building, they found our suspect deceased in a room in the church, suffering from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.”Rowland, a resident of Salt Lake City, was convicted of attempted forcible sex abuse and enticing a minor over the internet in 2004, court records show.Classes have been canceled Tuesday “to allow our campus community to grieve the senseless loss of this bright, young woman,” the university said in a statement. “We have made our counseling and support services available to students, staff and faculty.”McCluskey’s “family is understandably in shock at this news about their daughter,” the university added. “They are heartbroken. We have and continue to offer our full support to them at this terrible time.”Monday’s tragedy was the second deadly shooting at the university since last year.Student Austin Boutain, 24, was arrested in October 2017 after he fatally shot ChenWei Guo, a 23-year-old computer science major.Boutain entered a plea of guilty last month to aggravated murder, attempted aggravated murder and aggravated kidnapping, according to Salt Lake Tribune. He agreed to be sentenced to spend the rest of his life in prison.ABC News’ Marilyn Heck contributed to this report.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

A statistical study of polar mesosphere summer echoes observed by EISCAT

first_imgA comprehensive survey of data on ‘Polar Mesosphere Summer Echoes’, observed by the EISCAT VHF radar during 1988–1993, confirms that (1) these echoes are a summer phenomenon, with a season lasting from June to August; (2) PMSE occur most frequently around noon and midnight, and thus follow a semidiurnal pattern; (3) PMSE occur at a mean height of 85±2 km; (4) there is often a good correlation between the vertical Doppler velocity and the rate of change of echo height, which suggests that the echoing structures move bodily, perhaps in response to gravity waves. Previous results on the lack of correlation between the occurrence of PMSE and noctilucent clouds are reinforced.last_img
