CAUS Announcments for September 18, 1999
Hear Ye! Hear Ye! CAUS in now is session. Quiet in the computer room. Please be seated. Your attention is requested for the following announcements:
CAUS in COURT
All legal papers referred to below are posted on the CAUS website (http://caus.org)
1) CAUS v. Department of Defense (DoD)
On September 14th, CAUS submitted its Response, with accompanying Memorandum of Law, to the DoD's Motion for Summary Judgment. CAUS also requested the opportunity to argue this Motion in open court. Probable date will be sometime in February...hopefully. Hopefully, beCAUS as you may recall in the lawsuit against the Army, the judge cancelled the oral argument a week before the scheduled date...stating that it was unnecessary.
2) CAUS v. United States of America, State of Arizona et.al
On September 1st, CAUS filed its Complaint in the U.S. District Court in Phoenix. The five defendants will be served this Monday. The State of Arizona and Governor will have 20 days from receipt of the papers to file its answer. The federal defendants (U.S., Secretary of Defense & Attorney General) will have 60 days to respond. CAUS anticipates that Arizona, in its response, will move to dismiss the lawsuit on procedural grounds, avoiding the "invasion" issue. It is also anticipated that the federal defendants will await the outcome of Arizona's move, prior to responding.
CAUS' legal position is stronger against the U.S. than it is against Arizona (U.S. Constitution places the burden on the federal government to protect the states against invasion) and the Court could in fact dismiss against Arizona while keeping the federal government in the lawsuit...at least until they respond.
Well we finally did it...CAUS merchandise. CAUS now has various products, featuring the CAUS logo and CAUS Crest, that you can order to help support the CAUS. From buttons to bumper stickers; from mugs to mouspads; from T-shirts to coasters...you have a wide selection to choose from. But more importantly, every dollar goes to supporting CAUS...its principles and its projects.
And as a special incentive to help celebrate our grand opening, until October 1st, all CAUS T-shirts can be purchased by CAUS members at a 25% discount. So please checkout the Gift Shop and support the CAUS by purchasing something for yourself, your friends and/or your family. Help spread the word.
CAUS is still seeking your book reviews and recommendations for its bookstore. Regular reviewers will have their own section. Reviews need not be restricted to UFO books. The only condition is that the reviewer must have read the book and that it still be available.
CAUS QUERY - What is function and purpose of DSOD?
The Department of Defense, in its Motion for Summary Judgment, indicated, matter of factly, that it also requested the Defense and Space Operation Division, Operations Directorate (J-3) to search for information on the triangular UFOs. Of CAUS, the DSOD failed to find anything.
If any CAUS member has any information on this department within the DoD, CAUS would appreciate hearing about it. Or if any of you would like to do some research on the DSOD for CAUS, it would be much appreciated.
CAUS PUBLICE SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT (PSA)
Very rarely does CAUS post a PSA that isn't related in any way to its mission. But do to the importance of the following PSA, and the fact that so many people within the UFO community believe that there is a sinister connection between some researchers and this possibility, CAUS shares the following with its members:
How To Survive a Heart Attack When Alone . . . . . . .from Health Cares, Rochester General Hospital via Chapter 240's newsletter AND THE BEAT GOES ON... (reprint from the The Mended Hearts, Inc. Publication, Heart Response)
Since many people are alone when they suffer a heart attack this article seemed in order. Without help the person whose heart stops beating properly and who begins to feel Faint, has only about 10 seconds left before losing consciousness. However, these victims can help themselves by coughing repeatedly and very vigorously. A deep breath should be taken before each cough, and the cough must be deep and prolonged, as when producing sputum from deep inside the chest. A breath and a cough must be repeated about every two seconds without let up until help arrives, or until the heart is felt to be beating normally again. Deep breaths get oxygen into the lungs and coughing movements squeeze the heart and keep the blood circulating. The squeezing pressure on the heart also helps it regain normal rhythm. In this way, heart attack victims can get to a phone and between breaths, call for help.
