It heads northward through Butte County and intersects Durham-Pentz Road, it ends at Pearson Road in Paradise. SR 191 is not part of the National Highway System, a network of highways that are considered essential to the country's economy and mobility by the Federal Highway Administration. Construction of California State Route 191 was planned in 1962 but wasn't constructed due to U. S. Route 40 Alternate not being moved upward due to Lake Oroville. Construction started in 1963 when U. S. Route 40 Alternate was moved; the route opened the same year.

International College of Dentists

The International College of Dentists was conceived in 1920 at a farewell party in Tokyo for Dr. Louis Ottofy when he was returning home to the United States after practicing dentistry in the Philippines and Japan for 23 years. A colleague, Dr. Tsurukichi Okumura, a Japanese dentist urged Dr. Ottofy to form an international organization. Six years at the Seventh International Dental Congress in Philadelphia, U. S.. The group of dentists met again to finalize the concept of the ICD on New Year's Eve of 1927 the College was announced with Drs. Ottofy and Okumura as the Co-Founders; the first President of the College was Andres O. Weber, from Cuba. 250 dentists from 162 countries accepted the Fellowship oath. The group was selected based on an international reputation and participation in the FDI World Dental Federation; each Fellow was given the task of nominating other dentists for membership. Dentists who are inducted into the organization place. In the years following the initial formation of the ICD, membership grew such that autonomous sections were required.

In 1934, the first of these sections, located in the United States of America, was formed. In the 1960s the Philippines Section grew the Middle East Section. In the 1980s the South American Section was formed. Today, the organization claims a membership of 12,000 from hundreds of countries. In 2008, fifteen ICD Fellows of Myanmar with eight assistants went to cyclone-affected townships in the Delta and Dadeyae areas, providing free dental care and making some donations to the people in the camps under the name of the ICD organization. Over 235 patients were treated. Similar dental missions occur throughout the year and around the world to underserviced areas under the name of the ICD. Other projects are sponsored by ICD around the world. For a more detailed list of humanitarian projects see the list at Projects Map In Vietnam and Cambodia training for public health dentistry has been limited because of funds and experts in the field. Through an ICD sponsored program 40% of the public health dentists were given additional training.

Another 20% of them went on to receive higher education degrees in public health dentistry. While these programs do not directly provide care to patients in either country, they develop practical skills for dentists in designing programs for their populations; the organization has collaborated to improve infection safety practices. Publications most maintain their own web sites; the ICD Headquarters publishes a digital journal called The Globe and a quarterly newsletter called The College Today

Governor of South Carolina

The governor of the State of South Carolina is the chief executive of South Carolina serving as its head of state and head of the executive of the government of South Carolina. The governor is the ex officio commander-in-chief of the National Guard when not called into federal use; the governor's responsibilities include making yearly "State of the State" addresses to the South Carolina General Assembly, submitting an executive budget and ensuring that state laws are enforced. The 117th and current governor of South Carolina is Henry McMaster, serving his first elected term, he assumed the office on January 24, 2017, after Nikki Haley resigned to become the United States ambassador to the United Nations. He won the 2018 gubernatorial election. There are three legal requirements set forth in Section 2 of Article IV of the South Carolina Constitution. Be at least 30 years of age. Citizen of the United States and a resident of South Carolina for 5 years preceding the day of election; the final requirement, "No person shall be eligible to the office of governor who denies the existence of the Supreme Being," is of doubtful validity in light of the 1961 Supreme Court decision Torcaso v. Watkins, which reaffirmed that religious tests for public offices violated the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

This requirement, has still not been removed from the Constitution of South Carolina. In any case, under the state's present political climate it is considered unlikely the voters would elect a person who denied the existence of God. Under Section 4 in Article IV of the South Carolina Constitution, the governor serves a four-year term in office beginning at noon on the first Wednesday following the second Tuesday in January following his election and ending at noon on the first Wednesday following the second Tuesday in January four years later. Section 3 of Article IV states that no person shall be elected governor for more than two successive terms. For clarification, a person can hold an unlimited amount of terms as governor as long as such person does not serve more than two consecutive terms. Since Henry McMaster assumed the office of governor after Nikki Haley resigned, he is eligible to serve the remainder of Haley's term and two consecutive four-year terms of his own. According to the South Carolina Constitution, the governor: Exercises "supreme executive authority."

Appoints directors to 14 cabinet agencies, but most appointments are shared with the General Assembly. Serves as the commander-in-chief of the South Carolina National Guard. Serves as the commander-in-chief of the South Carolina State Guard, an auxiliary of the National Guard organized for in-state homeland defense. Commutes death sentences to life imprisonment. Calls the General Assembly to an extra session in "extraordinary circumstances." Adjourns the General Assembly as he shall think proper. Exercises veto and a Line-item veto power on bills. Declares a state of emergency and oversees relief in the event of a disaster. Declares public schools and government offices closed during civil or weather emergencies. Oversees all state departments. Serves as the ex officio chair of the board of trustees of all state universities. Submits a budget proposal to the General Assembly every January. Delivers a state of the state address, "from time to time," to the General Assembly. Appoints United States senators in cases of vacancy to serve until the next election.

Appoints county sheriffs in cases of vacancy to serve until the next election. If the incumbent governor is no longer able or permitted to fulfill the duties of the office of governor, the following line of succession will be followed: During impeachment or when the governor is temporarily disabled or absent from office, the lieutenant governor will have the powers of the governor. If the governor-elect is unable to fulfill the duties of the office of the governor, the lieutenant governor will become governor when the incumbent governor's term expires. If there is an incumbent governor beginning a new term, but a lieutenant governor-elect, if the incumbent governor is unable to fulfill the duties of the office of the governor, the incumbent lieutenant governor shall become governor until the inauguration date, the lieutenant governor-elect shall become governor on that date. "I do solemnly swear that I am duly qualified, according to the Constitution of this State, to exercise the duties of the office to which I have been elected, that I will, to the best of my ability, discharge the duties thereof, preserve and defend the Constitution of this State and of the United States.

So help me God." Main Article: South Carolina Governor's Mansion The Governor's Mansion, located at 800 Richland Street in Columbia, on Arsenal Hill, is the official residence of the Governor of South Carolina. It was built in 1855 and served as faculty quarters for The Arsenal Academy which together with the Citadel Academy in Charleston formed The South Carolina Military Academy; the South Carolina Constitution in Section 20 of Article IV requires that the governor is to reside where the General Assembly convenes. The South Carolina Constitution of 1776 specified for the governor to be chosen by the General Assembly. In 1778, the constitution was amended to change the title for the chief of the executive branch from president to governor.
