Lewis Milestone

Lewis Milestone was a Russian-born American motion picture director. He is known for directing Two Arabian Knights and All Quiet on the Western Front, both of which received Academy Awards for Best Director, he directed The Front Page, The General Died at Dawn, Of Mice and Men, Ocean's 11, received the directing credit for Mutiny on the Bounty, though Marlon Brando appropriated his responsibilities during its production. Milestone was born in Kishinev, in the Bessarabia Governorate of the Russian Empire, to a family of Jewish heritage, he sailed from Hamburg and - through Southampton - arrived to the United States on 14 November 1913, just prior to World War I. He held a number of odd jobs before enlisting in the U. S. Signal Corps, where he worked as an assistant director on Army training films during the war. In 1919, he became a naturalized citizen of the United States. After the war he went to Hollywood, where he first worked as a film editor and as an assistant director. Howard Hughes promoted Milestone to director and one of his early efforts, the 1928 film Two Arabian Knights, won him an Oscar in the first Academy Award ceremony.

He directed The Racket, an early gangster film, helped Hughes direct scenes for his aviation saga Hell's Angels. Milestone won his second Academy Award for All Quiet on the Western Front, a harrowing screen adaptation of the antiwar novel by Erich Maria Remarque, his next, The Front Page, brought the Ben Hecht/Charles MacArthur play to the screen. In the Front Page Milestone was one of the first directors to use the rotoambulator; the rotoambulator is a dolly with three wheels. The rotoambulator was used in the scene of the Front Page where Walter Bums descends to the shipping area of his plant; the rotoambulator was used to capture the entire scene in a way. It earned him another Oscar nomination, his work during the 1930s and 1940s was always identifiable by its lighting and imaginative use of fluid camera. During this time, he made the original Of Men. In the war years Milestone made The North Star, The Purple Heart, A Walk in the Sun, movies made during and set in World War II. In these films, he defended the world's fighting both Nazi Imperial Japan.

After the war, he was blacklisted under the suspicion. Deciding to wait for anti-communist hostility to cool, he and his wife left for Europe: here he made a few films. In the U. S. he made other films before leaving for Europe, but his postwar films did not have the same power as the early works. He worked extensively in television from the mid-1950s on, he returned to the U. S. to make two more films: Ocean's 11 starring the Rat Pack including Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, Mutiny on the Bounty starring Marlon Brando. The original Ocean's 11 worked. With no other work to do, he turned to TV work which he disliked left directing as his health began failing. Milestone died from natural causes on September 1980, five days short of his 85th birthday. Lewis Milestone's final request before he died in 1980 was for Universal Studios to restore All Quiet on the Western Front to its original length; that request would be granted nearly two decades by Universal and other film preservation companies, this restored version is what is seen today on television and home video.

Milestone is interred in the Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Los Angeles. Notes Bibliography Lewis Milestone on IMDb Lewis Milestone at Find a Grave Lewis Milestone at Virtual History Lewis Milestone papers, Margaret Herrick Library, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences

Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners

The Joint Commission of Pharmacy Practitioners is the largest professional delegation representing the interests of pharmacists within the United States. JCPP represents 13 professional associations in the field of pharmacy, developing consensus policy directives for the profession, it is well known for the 2014 development of "The Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process," which provides broad, consensus guidelines for how clinical pharmacists should practice. JCPP was founded in 1977 with the purpose of bringing American pharmacists from across the field together to discuss the future of the profession and other matters of strategic importance to the profession of pharmacy as a whole. JCPP holds quarterly meetings of its delegates to discuss topics of relevance to the profession of pharmacy as a whole. Prior to holding quarterly meetings, JCPP held conferences for pharmacy stakeholders that lasted a few days long. On May 29, 2014, JCPP's member organizations approved the "Pharmacists’ Patient Care Process" with the goal of providing a unified, professional understanding of pharmacist-lead pharmaceutical care.

The PCPP was drafted by representatives from ten JCPP member organizations. The Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, a member of JCPP, requires that pharmacy schools within the United States incorporate the PCPP into their curricula; the effort grew out of prior efforts to standardize "pharmacist workup of drug therapy," which the process now provides a guideline for doing. Part of the impetus for the development of the PCPP came from the desire of pharmacists to measure the outcomes of their care. By standardizing pharmaceutical care, outcomes could be attributed to the care itself, rather than any bias introduced by differences in methodology; the PCPP emphasizes the need for pharmacists to work together with other healthcare professionals to improve medication-related outcomes. The PCPP has been covered in Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Public Health Grand Rounds, has been the subject of continuing education programs for a variety of pharmacy groups. In 2011, JCPP wrote a report to the Surgeon General of the United States, Office of the Chief Pharmacist, titled, "Improving Patient and Health System Outcomes through Advanced Pharmacy Practice."

As of March 2017, JCPP is composed of 13 professional pharmacy associations and their respective representatives: Academy of Managed Care Pharmacy, represented by Susan Cantrell, CEO of AMCP American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, represented by Lucinda Maine, CEO of AACP American College of Apothecaries, represented by Donnie Calhoun, Executive Vice President of ACA American College of Clinical Pharmacy, represented by Michael S.
