As you may or may not be aware, physicians all across the country are having the transfer to utilizing electronic health records (EHR) in an effort to meet "Meaningful Use" which has been defined by the current administration. I think the readers will find this interesting as to how I have implemented this EHR (paperless system) and how it will improve their health care and ultimately communication between physicians in the community.

GAUSS et al., SC 18718/18719 Judicial District of Waterbury Declaratory Judgment; Trusts; Whether the Trial Court Properly Denied Motion to Intervene; Whether Trial Court Properly Found that an Implied Trust Existed. In 2007, the governing body (vestry) of the Bishop Seabury Church of Groton, which is a parish of the Episcopal Church in the Diocese of Connecticut (diocese), informed the bishop of the diocese that the parish had decided to change its affiliation from the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States of America (Episcopal Church) to the Convocation of Anglicans in North America. Upon receiving this information, the bishop of the Episcopal diocese removed the vestry members from their positions and
demanded that they and rector Ronald Gauss relinquish possession of the parish property. When the vestry members and Gauss refused to do so, the diocese, the rector appointed to replace Gauss, Bishop Seabury Church and the Episcopal Church sought a declaratory judgment that the real and personal property of the parish was held in trust for the diocese and the Episcopal Church. They also sought an accounting and an injunction prohibiting Gauss and the vestry members from continuing to assert any rights to the property. The defendants filed a counterclaim disputing that the property was being held in trust for the diocese or the Episcopal Church. Subsequently, an unincorporated voluntary association of about 700 individuals calling itself "Bishop Seabury Church" filed a motion to intervene as a defendant. In its motion, it alleged that it was the record owner of the property and, as such, it sought to assert a counterclaim to quiet title and to pursue damages. The trial court denied the motion to intervene, finding that the issues raised by the movant appeared to be fully and fairly raised by the pleadings. The proposed intervenor appealed (SC 18718) from that ruling. The parties filed cross motions for summary judgment. The trial court denied the defendants’ motion and granted summary judgment in favor of the plaintiffs on their complaint and on the defendants' counterclaim. In reaching its decision, the court found that the Episcopal Church is a hierarchical organization and that its canons and constitutions, as well as those of the diocese, evidence the existence of an implied trust. The court accordingly granted the plaintiffs' requests for declaratory and injunctive relief and permitted them to move for orders of accounting. The defendants appealed (SC 18719). Subsequently, on the plaintiffs' motion, the court issued several accounting orders from which the defendants filed an amended appeal. When the defendants refused to comply fully with those orders, the court found them to be in contempt. The defendants further amended their appeal to challenge that ruling. Drive a Tesla At Yale Environment 360 today, journalist Richard Stone reports on the ever-increasing number of jellyfish blooms around the world and what this bizarre phenomenon might mean for fisheries. Although several factors appear to be at work, continued overfishing of the world’s oceans is undoubtedly playing a part, as jellyfish populations often soar when fish stocks are decimated. With massive jellyfish blooms increasingly occurring in the Sea of Japan, the Black Sea, the Gulf of Mexico, and elsewhere, scientists are now trying to determine if these outbreaks could represent a “new normal” in which jellyfish increasingly supplant fish. Read Stone’s report. http://today.uconn.edu/?p=20440 I thought this would interest you since Connecticut is one of 23 states that have enacted insurance reform that will allow autism treatment and tests to be covered: On January 10, Lineagen will launch a new genetic testing service for the early diagnosis of autism and other developmental disorders. Early diagnosis and intervention is crucial for increasing a patient's chances for a normal life. Autism is typically diagnosed around age five,
whereas Lineagen’s new service is capable of helping diagnose autism as early as 18 months. Lineagen's new service, called FirstStepDx, is the industry’s first genetic test designed specifically to help pediatricians and parents navigate the complicated waters of autism diagnosis and treatment. If you can agree to an embargo, I would be happy to set up a call for you with Lineagen's CEO Michael Paul, Ph.D, prior to the announcement, which will be made at the 2011 JP Morgan Healthcare Conference in San Francisco.

HealthNewsDigest.com) - New Haven, Conn. — Addictive behaviors in women involving tobacco, alcohol, illicit drugs and overeating will be the focus of a new fiveyear, $2.5 million faculty training grant awarded to Yale University researchers in the Department of Psychiatry. The grant, funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the National Institutes of Health Office of Research on Women’s Health, will be used to train scholars to conduct interdisciplinary research on addictive behaviors in women, and on the development of new gender-specific prevention and treatment strategies. Carolyn M. Mazure, professor of psychiatry and psychology and director of Women’s Health Research at Yale, is the principal investigator, and Samuel A. Ball, professor of psychiatry, is the research director for this grant. http://www.healthnewsdigest.com/news/Women_s_Health_260/Yale_Establishes_Resear ch_Program_on_Addictive_Behaviors_in_Women.shtml Scientists have been able to grow artificial lungs that function in rats They hope that a similar technique could one day engineer donor organs for humans http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/life/health-fitness/health/Artificial-lungs-offer-hopeto-transplant-patients/articleshow/6170716.cms Richard Hayber, the Hartford attorney retained by Marie, email@example.com Hi Ed, You may not remember it but we meet at a New Haven Deanery Meeting a couple of years or so ago and I was telling you about my involvement on The I.R.M. board (now its the IRIS board). I was amazed to find someone who knew what EMM was. Thanks for your response to my blog. In all honesty only half of the 30 people at our July 4th service were actual church members the rest being musicians & some of their family members, These were friends of one of our members who responded to a call for help when we discovered just one week prior that our keyboardist was going with Pastor Geoff. It was a very lively (musically & otherwise service. Our supply priest for last & this coming Sunday was Jim Bradley, recently retired rector of St. Johns Waterbury for 21 yrs. and before that rector of St Paul's New Haven for 5 yrs. Suffragan Bishop Ahrens is coming on July 18th to meet with us & discuss the future. I don't have a strong sense of how things will turn out, but Geoff has alienated so many members that if we send out a good letter some people may return. Some already have done so. No matter how small a showing we had on this past Sunday or in the next few weeks, I think it is a very significant side of this story. Even if it puts our parish in a negative light in some ways, we should not be afraid of the truth. Even though the loss of so many members is difficult, we are trying to not to harbor any ill will. If we are still functioning in 2 or 3 mos. it might make an interesting follow up story. Thanks again, Jim Honore Moveable Upper Room, 5 a.m. Mondays, Joel Dias

How did satellite, originally an Etruscan word meaning “bodyguard,” acquire its present meaning? What about chivalry, derived from a Latin word that meant “worthless horse”? The answers to these questions satisfy the reader’s curiosity about English—but at the same time they illustrate essential points in the story of Latin and the Romance languages. In LATIN ALIVE: The Survival of Latin in English and the Romance Languages (Cambridge University Press, February 2010), Joseph Solodow charts Latin’s evolution from classical times to the modern era, with focus on the Romantic languages of French, Spanish, and Italian along with English. Complementing this etymology with maps and historical background, Latin Alive will delight both the word enthusiast and curious reader with engaging details on how Latin became one of the most survival savvy languages in human history. Joseph B. Solodow in Professor of Foreign Languages at Southern Connecticut State University and Lecturer in Classics at Yale University and is available for interviews.

Beginning 11:15 a.m. Friday and ending 10:45 p.m. Sunday, the buses would depart twice a day from 344 College St. in New Haven. The proposed lines from New Haven to New York and Boston, initially advanced in response to increased pressure from the Board of Alderman for a new low-cost transportation option, cost $15 and $20, respectively, for one-way fares. If feedback to the drafted schedule from the New Haven community is positive, company owner Joel Azumah said he will start the service by Thanksgiving.
