Kamera lens

Kamera lens is a unicellular, flagellate organism and the only species in the genus Kamera. Though the species has been known for centuries, it is poorly understood, its systematic position within the Eukaryota is uncertain. Kamera lens is a free-living, heterotrophic organism, it is 6 to 7 by 2.5 to 3 micrometers on ovate. The base of both its long flagella is below the tip. There is only one nucleus. Ultrastructural characters are not known. Kamera lens can be found in hay infusions. William Saville Kent reported spore-masses of it in such an infusion in 1880; the first valid description was published by Otto Friedrich Müller in 1773. William Saville Kent placed it in the genus Heteromita in 1880. Edwin Klebs moved it to Bodo in 1892, but this was rejected by H. M. Woodcock, who removed the species from Bodo and made it the type species of Heteromastix. David J. Patterson and Michael Zölffel found Woodcock's description to be insufficient and established the genus Kamera for Kamera lens in 1991, creating a play on words in the binomial's resemblance to'camera lens'.

Due to lacking ultrastructural or molecular biological data, the species' rank is uncertain. This species has been provisionally placed in the Ochrophyta; the taxonomy of this group is under revision so the position of the genus Kamera should not be regarded as being settled at the moment

Melchior Carneiro

Belchior Carneiro Leitão known as Melchior Carneiro was a Portuguese Jesuit missionary bishop. He was one of the first Jesuit bishops, he entered the Society of Jesus, 25 April 1543, was appointed in 1551 the first rector of the College of Évora, shortly after transferred to the rectorship of the College of Lisbon. When, in 1553, Simão Rodrigues, the first provincial of Portugal, was summoned to Rome to answer charges made against his administration, the visitor, assigned him Carneiro as a companion. In the meantime King John III of Portugal, a friend and patron of the Jesuits, had written both to Pope Julius III and to Ignatius Loyola, requesting the appointment of a Jesuit as Patriarch of Ethiopia. On 23 January 1555 the Pope chose João Nunes Barreto, giving him at the same time two coadjutors with the right of succession, Andrés de Oviedo, titular bishop of Hieropolis, Carneiro, titular bishop of Nicaea. Barreto and Oviedo were consecrated 5 May 1555 in Lisbon, were the first Jesuits to be raised to the episcopal dignity.

The pope had given them an order of obedience to accept consecration, Loyola acquiesced, considering that the dignity carried with it hardship and suffering rather than honour. Unable to enter his missionary field of Ethiopia, Carneiro set out for Portuguese India and landed at Goa. Not having been consecrated before leaving Portugal, he was ordained bishop 15 December 1560 by Barreto. Not able to fulfill his original assignment, he received the brief Ex Litteris carissimis from Pope Pius V in 1566 appointing him apostolic administrator for the Portuguese missions in Japan and China, he continued to labour on the Malabar coast until 1567, when he was invited to come to Macau where the Jesuits had established a mission. He arrived there in June 1568, thereby becoming the first consecrated bishop in the region of China and Japan, his work there was rewarded when the Diocese of Macau was established in 1576 by Pope Gregory XIII. The first papal nominee to be Bishop of Macau in 1576 was not Carneiro, but rather Diogo Nunes de Figueira, who declined the appointment and never traveled to Macau.

The second nominee in 1578 was Leonardo Fernandes de Sá, who did not arrive in Macau until 1581. As a result, Carneiro served as administrator of the new diocese from 1576 to 1581, he became the nominal Patriarch of Ethiopia in 1577 upon the death of Oviedo, though he was never able to travel there. After the arrival of Sá, Carneiro retired to the home of the Society of Jesus at Macau, where he died in 1583. Carneiro wrote some letters of historical interest, one from Mozambique, one from Goa, two from Macau, they are printed in various collections.
