United Grand Lodge of England

The United Grand Lodge of England is the governing Masonic lodge for the majority of freemasons in England and the Commonwealth of Nations. Claiming descent from the Masonic grand lodge formed 24 June 1717 at the Goose & Gridiron Tavern in London, it is considered to be the oldest Masonic Grand Lodge in the world. Together with the Grand Lodge of Scotland, the Grand Lodge of Ireland, they are referred to by their members as "the home Grand Lodges" or "the Home Constitutions". Prior to 1717 there were Freemasons' lodges in England and Ireland, with the earliest known admission of non-operative masons being in Scotland. On St John's Day, 24 June 1717, three existing London lodges and a Westminster lodge held a joint dinner at the Goose and Gridiron alehouse in St. Paul's Churchyard, elected Anthony Sayer to the chair as Grand Master, called themselves the Grand Lodge of London and Westminster; the City of London Corporation has erected a Blue Plaque near the location. Little is known of Sayer save that he was described as a Gentleman when he became Grand Master, but fell on hard times, receiving money from the Grand Lodge charity fund.

In 1718 Sayer was succeeded by a successful Civil Servant. The society passed into the care of John Theophilus Desaguliers, a scientist and clergyman back to Payne. In 1721, the Grand Lodge managed to obtain a nobleman, the Duke of Montagu to preside as Grand Master, so was able to establish itself as an authoritative regulatory body, began meeting on a quarterly basis; this resulted in lodges outside London becoming affiliated, accepting sequentially numbered warrants conferring seniority over applicants. In 1723, by authority of the Grand Lodge, James Anderson published the Constitutions of Masonry for the purposes of regulating the craft and establishing the Grand Lodge's authority to warrant Lodges to meet; the book includes a fanciful history of the Craft, which contains much interesting material. Throughout the early years of the new Grand Lodge there were any number of Masons and lodges that never affiliated with the new Grand Lodge; these unaffiliated Masons and their Lodges were referred to as "Old Masons", or "St. John Masons", "St. John Lodges".

During the 1730s and 1740s antipathy increased between the London Grand Lodge and the Grand Lodges of Ireland and Scotland. Irish and Scots Masons visiting and living in London considered the London Grand Lodge to have deviated from the ancient practices of the Craft; as a result, these Masons felt a stronger kinship with the unaffiliated London Lodges. The aristocratic nature of the London Grand Lodge and its members alienated other Masons causing them to identify with the unaffiliated Lodges. On 17 July 1751, representatives of five Lodges gathered at the Turk's Head Tavern, in Greek Street, Soho and formed a rival Grand Lodge – "The Grand Lodge of England According to the Old Institutions", they considered that they practiced a more ancient and therefore purer form of Masonry, called their Grand Lodge The Ancients' Grand Lodge. They called those affiliated to the Premier Grand Lodge, by the pejorative epithet The Moderns; these two unofficial names stuck. The creation of Lodges followed the development of the Empire, with all three home Grand Lodges warranting Lodges around the world, including the Americas and Africa, from the 1730s.

In 1809 the Moderns appointed a "Lodge of Promulgation" to return their own ritual to regularity with Scotland and the Ancients. In 1811 both Grand Lodges appointed Commissioners and over the next two years, articles of Union were negotiated and agreed. In January 1813 the Duke of Sussex became Grand Master of the Moderns on the resignation of his brother, the Prince Regent, in December of that year another brother, Duke of Kent became Grand Master of the Antients. On 27 December 1813 the United Grand Lodge of England was constituted at Freemasons' Hall, London with the Duke of Sussex as Grand Master. A Lodge of Reconciliation was formed to reconcile the rituals worked under the two former Grand Lodges; the new Grand Master had high hopes for Freemasonry, having a theory that it was pre-Christian and could serve the cause of humanity as a universal religion. However, his autocratic dealings with ordinary lodges won him few friends outside London, sparked open rebellion and a new Grand Lodge of Wigan in the North West.

Within Grand Lodge, opposition centred on Masonic Charity. Robert Crucefix launched the Freemason's Quarterly Review to promote charity to keep Freemasons from the workhouse, to engage masons in the broader argument for social reform; the Earl of Zetland's complacent and inept management of Grand Lodge played into the hands of the reformers, by the end of the 1870s English Freemasonry had become a perfect expression of the aspirations of the enlightened middle classes. In response to conspiracy theories about Freemasons and hostile views gaining new life, due to the works of Stephen Knight and Martin Short, the United Grand Lodge of England began to change the way it dealt with the general public and the media from the mid-1990s, emphasizing a new "openness." This presentation was summed up by Provincial Secretary of East Lancashire, Alan Garnett who declared, "we're not a secret society or a society with secrets, but we are a private society." Lodges across England and Wales began holding open days, to allow the general public to see what they do.

Freemasons' Hall and the Library and Museum of Freemasonry opened to the general public, including guided tours. Today, the United Grand Lodge of England or Grand Lodge has over 200,000 members meeting in over 6,800 Lodges, organised into a number

Calcareous dinoflagellate cysts

Calcareous dinoflagellate cysts or calcareous dinocysts are dinoflagellate cysts produced by a group of peridinoid dinoflagellates, called calcareous dinoflagellates. Organisms producing calcareous structures are found in a small group of peridinoid dinoflagellates, called calcareous dinoflagellates; such calcareous structures are either dinocysts, which are formed during the life cycle or found in vegetative stages. The potential to produce calcareous structures has been considered as apomorphic within alveolates, arguing for the monophyly of Calciodinellaceae. Calciodinellaceae comprise 35 extant species of calcareous dinophytes, plus about 260 fossil species, they are distributed in cold through tropical seas of the world. Calcareous cysts are deposited in both marine sediments that are oceanic; the first freshwater dinoflagellate that produces calcareous cysts was discovered. According to the fossil record, calcareous dinoflagellates originate in the Upper Triassic and are diverse during the Cretaceous and throughout the Tertiary.

Due to their long stratigraphic range, many fossil species have been described. By contrast, descriptions of extant species are based on the motile stages; this has led to two distinct systematics: paleontological and neontological

Sea Princess

MS Sea Princess is a Sun-class cruise ship operated by Princess Cruises. She has three sister ships: Sun Princess in the Princess fleet, Oceana in the P&O Cruises fleet, Pacific Explorer in the P&O Cruises Australia fleet; the vessel was delivered to Princess Cruises from Fincantieri and began operation in 1998 under the name of Sea Princess. Sea Princess was transferred to P&O Cruises in late 2002/early 2003. P&O renamed her Adonia on 21 May 2003; the Princess Royal and her daughter Zara Phillips renamed the vessel to Adonia at a launching ceremony with sister ship Oceana, in the first double ship naming ceremony in the UK. Adonia filled the gap left in the P&O Cruises fleet in the period between Arcadia leaving the fleet to become Ocean Village and the launch of the new Arcadia in 2005, when the vessel was transferred back to Princess Cruises; when Princess Cruises reacquired her in 2005, the vessel was once more named Sea Princess, in a ceremony by Joanna Lumley. As of 2019, Sea Princess is homeported in Australia and will sail from new homeports in Fremantle and Adelaide for the 2020-2021 calendar season.

At the end of May 2006, 250 people, including 18 crew, were affected by a norovirus. Evidence of a gastrointestinal virus had been found during the last two days of the previous cruise, but the company stated that it did not believe the two outbreaks to be linked; the passengers were notified of this occurrence by a letter found in their cabins after boarding. Although the ship's itinerary had been altered, the vessel ordered to dock away from other vessels, no other countermeasures were effected. Sea Princess returned to port in Southampton a day early, the vessel underwent a complete sanitisation and decontamination before resuming cruising. Passengers were offered a 30% refund and a £150 voucher for use on a Princess cruise. A norovirus outbreak occurred again on the following cruise, although to a lesser extent, visible precautions included waiter service at the buffets and the absence of salt and pepper shakers; this cruise was affected by force 11-12 winds in the vicinity of Ushant, causing the first scheduled port to be missed, while the remaining itinerary remained unaltered.

The ship was undamaged, the nearby Legend of the Seas suffered broken windows, Pride of Bilbao terminated her Spain-bound voyage in France due to storm damage. It is that the rough seas caused increased use of the handrails, contributing to the difficulty of eradicating norovirus. In January 2018, about 200 passengers were reported to have been infected with norovirus during a two-week round trip from Brisbane to New Zealand. On 28 August 2016, three Canadian nationals were arrested after Sea Princess berthed in Sydney Harbour. After the ship docked Australian Border Force officers along with drug sniffing dogs boarded the ship. During a search of the ship 95 kg of cocaine was found packed in suitcases; the estimated value of the cocaine is $30 million AUD. The maximum penalty for this offense is life in prison; the three arrested were André Tamine, Isabelle Lagacé, Melina Roberge, all from Canada. They were arrested on day 51 of a 68 day cruise.
