Paramedics in the United States

In the United States, the paramedic is a professional whose primary focus is to provide advanced emergency medical care for critical and emergency patients who access Emergency Medical Services. This individual possesses the complex knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. Paramedics function under medical oversight. Paramedics perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment found on an ambulance; the paramedic is a link from the scene into the health care system. One of the eligibility requirements for state certification or licensure requires successful completion of a nationally accredited Paramedic program at the certificate or associate degree level; each state varies in requirements to practice as a paramedic, not all states require licensure. Prior to 1970, ambulances were staffed with advanced first-aid level responders who were referred to as "ambulance attendants." There was little regulation or standardized training for those staffing these early emergency response vehicles or the required equipment carried inside.

Around 1966 in a published report entitled "Accidental Death and Disability: The Neglected Disease of Modern Society", medical researchers began to reveal, to their astonishment, that soldiers who were wounded on the battlefields of Vietnam had a better survival rate than those individuals who were injured in motor vehicle accidents on California freeways. Early research attributed these differences in outcome to a number of factors, including comprehensive trauma care, rapid transport to designated trauma facilities, a new type of medical corpsman. During the 1960s a Los Angeles cardiologist named Walter S. Graf became concerned about the lack of actual medical care being given to coronary patients during emergency transportation to a hospital. In 1969, while serving as president of the Los Angeles Chapter of the American Heart Association, he created a "mobile critical care unit", consisting of a Chevy van, a registered nurse, a portable defibrillator; the same year his patient Kenneth Hahn, a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, persuaded the Supervisors to approve a pilot program to train county firefighters as "Mobile Intensive Care Paramedics".

A change in state law was necessary to allow personnel other than doctors and nurses to render emergency medical care. Hahn recruited two state legislators who wrote the Wedworth-Townsend Paramedic Act of 1970, signed into law by Governor Ronald Reagan on July 15, 1970, despite opposition from doctors and attorneys. Paramedic training began the next month at the Freeman Memorial Hospital under Graf's direction, it was the first nationally accredited paramedic training program in the United States. Other communities in the United States were experimenting with advanced emergency medical care. Pittsburgh's branch of Freedom House paramedics are credited as the first emergency medical technician trainees in the United States. Pittsburgh's Peter Safar is referred to as the father of CPR. In 1967, he began training unemployed African-American men in what became Freedom House Ambulance Service, the first paramedic squadron in the United States, and independent from one another, experimental programs began in three U.

S. centers. Each was aimed at determining the effectiveness of using firefighters to perform many of these same advanced medical skills in the pre-hospital setting in the civilian world. Many in the senior administration of the fire departments were quite opposed to this concept of'firemen giving needles', resisted and attempted to cancel pilot programs more than once. In Seattle, the Medic One program at Harborview Medical Center and the University of Washington Medical Center, started by Leonard Cobb, M. D. began training firefighters in CPR in 1970. Dr. Eugene Nagel trained city of Miami firefighters as the first U. S. paramedics to use invasive techniques and portable defibrillators with telemetry in 1967. Elsewhere, the novel approach to pre-hospital care was evolving. Portland's Leonard Rose, M. D. in cooperation with Buck Ambulance Service, instituted a cardiac training program and began training other paramedics. Baltimore's R. Adams Cowley, the father of trauma medicine, devised the concept of integrated emergency care, designing the first civilian Medevac helicopter program and campaigning for a statewide EMS system.

Other communities that were early participants in the development of paramedicine included Jacksonville, Pittsburgh and Seattle, Washington. In 1972 the first civilian emergency medical helicopter transport service, Flight for Life opened in Denver, Colorado. Emergency medical helicopters were soon put into service elsewhere in the United States, it is now routine to have paramedic and nurse-staffed EMS helicopters in most major metropolitan areas. The vast majority of these aeromedical services are utilized for critical care air transport in addition to emergency medical services. A television producer, working for producer Jack Webb, of Dragnet and Adam-12 fame, was in Los Angeles' UCLA Harbor Medical Center, doing background research for a proposed new TV show about doctors, when he happened to encounter these'firemen who spoke like doctors and worked with them'; this novel idea would evolve into the Emergency! television series

Since they settled in between two rivers. Traditionally and culturally, Limis have strong ties to the Tibetans. There is cultural exchange between this part of Nepal and Tibet. Due to its remoteness to other parts of Nepal and district headquarter Simikot, people living in Limi still rely on trade with Tibet.

There are three villages in Limi - Til and Zang. Til is closest village of Limi towards the main border point of Hilsa. Halji located in the middle of limi, and Jhang meets other side border to Tibet.

Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service

The Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service was an agency within the United States Department of the Interior which subsumed its functions from the National Park Service and Bureau of Outdoor Recreation. It was created under the Carter administration by order of the Secretary of the Interior on January 25, 1978. HCRS, a non-land managing agency, was responsible for assuring the identification and beneficial use of important cultural and recreational American resources. HCRS offered grant assistance, technical information and guidance to those in the public and private sectors involved in conservation or recreation projects. Under the Reagan administration the HCRS was abolished by Secretarial Order 3060 on February 19, 1981, absorbed into the National Park Service. During its brief tenure, HCRS revolutionized the integration of natural resource based planning and cultural and historic preservation. HCRS was involved with a number of important achievements during its short existence including: Publication of the Third Outdoor Recreation Plan in 1978 and its 1979 Nationwide Recreation Action Program.

HCRS played a major role in advocating for passage of legislation to protect the biodiversity and other natural resources found on Barrier Islands which passed the U. S. Congress in 1982 as the Coastal Barrier Resources Act; these and other actions of HCRS were detailed in the Third Outdoor Recreation Plan transmitted to the Congress of the United States by President Jimmy Carter on December 11, 1979. The Secretary of the Interior was Cecil D. Andrus and the Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and Parks Robert L. Herbst; the senior management of HCRS during the period of 1977-1980 consisted of: Chris Therral Delaporte, Director. Pritchard, Deputy Director. During this agency's existence, a number of important publications and research on historic preservation issues were completed. Within the HCRS was a "Policy on Disposition of Human Remains", a standard for federal agencies within the Department of the Interior interested in studying bones and handling human remains; the policy was an early attempt at relieving tensions between Native Americans and the U.

S. government. The HCRS called for the reburial of all remains that were in deliberate burials whose direct relation to modern relatives could be proven. Before the reburial, the U. S. government was permitted to document the remains. Pauketat, Timothy R. North American Archaeology 2005. Blackwell Publishing

Leon Sachs

Leon B. Sachs (April 20, 1918, Windsor – August 20, 1977, Athens – a Soviet musician, a virtuoso violinist, one of the leading pedagogues of the Soviet violin school. Honoured Artist of the USSR. Leon Sachs was born into the family of Boris Sachs – a laborer, a metalworker, a native of Riga – and Olga Sachs – a housewife, a native of Vinnitsa. Boris and Olga have left Russia for US together with the first wave of emigration – in the end of the 19th century, they have settled in Detroit, where they wed.. Like most of the young population of Detroit, the Sachs family loved sailing across the Detroit River, crossing to the opposite shore – to the city of Windsor. One of those boat trips was undertaken by the young couple on an April weekend of 1918. Olga was expecting a child. Having moored to the Canadian shore, she consulted a doctor, her firstborn son – Leon Sachs – was born on April 20, 1918. Leon's musical talent became apparent at a young age. At 4 he started taking private violin lessons; the father worked at the Ford Motor Company.

Yet the income was not sufficient to pay for Leon's violin tutor. The parents were in constant need, but they did everything possible to afford their son's music lessons, they tried to hold a small laundromat business, but it went bankrupt. Working at the Ford Factory, Boris Sachs joined the USA Communist Party. In 1925 he responded to Lenin's call to American workers – an appeal to come and participate in the construction projects, helping build the young USSR. Leon was seven years old, when the entire family moved to Soviet Union's capital, where he has received a possibility to study music at no charge. In 1925 he entered N. Rubinstein Brothers Musical College. Following the instruction of the Commissar of Enlightenment Anatoly Lunacharsky, Leon was given a special stipend for gifted children. Lev Zeitlin – the student and successor of the Russian violin school founder Leopold Auer – became Leon's first violin pedagogue. In 1932 Leon was transferred to a recreated group for precocious children at the Moscow Conservatory.

«Leva Sachs, a young violinist who graduated from a special children's music group, gave his first recital on May 16 at the Moscow Conservatory… The first concert showed Sachs as a serious and sufficiently accomplished musician, technically. A natural taste, rhythmic sense, fine finger work are Sachs' best qualities".. In 1937 Leon Sachs was a freshman at the Moscow Conservatory, studying under the distinguished violinist and professor David Oistrakh. In that year Leon Sachs participated in the First National USSR Competition of Violinists and became its laureate. Upon graduation from the conservatory in 1941, Leon Sachs was drafted to the Red Army and served in the Red Army Central House Symphony Orchestra for three years. Working within this collective allowed him to widen his horizons and be directly introduced to the artistry of such outstanding conductors as Lev Steinberg, Oscar Frid, Kurt Zanderling and many others, it was there. And when offered to participate in the competition to the Operetta Theater Orchestra – after his demobilization in 1944 – Leon Sachs had secured the job of the principal violin.

It was when Sachs met the love of his love – Muza Denisova. In 1943 the young pianist, a student of the Gnessin Institute became Leon's wife, they had two children -- Maria. Leon and Muza were tied for life by their devoted love to music. From 1943 to 1946 Leon Sachs studied at the Moscow Conservatory graduate school under the guidance of Professor D. Oistrakh; the Borodin Quartet was created under the lead of violist Mikhail Teryan in 1944 within the frame of the chamber music class. Leon Sachs was one of the founding members of the group. From 1945 onwards Sachs worked at the USSR Bolshoy Theater's Symphony Orchestra, and from 1964 until his death on August 20, 1977 he served as its principal violin. "The theater became a new and outermost music school for me", – Sachs used to say. – "The interaction with the leading figures of the conducting art – A. Pazovsky, N. Golovanov, A. Melik-Pashaev, V. Nebolsin, M. Zhukov – taught me to regard musical theater as the top achievement of performance art...".

Yet L. Sachs has never limited himself to orchestra work, he gave many concerts – both as a soloist and an ensemble performer, he made records. His musical horizons were wide: from ancient sonatas to the newest pieces of 20th century composers: Stravinsky, Hindemith, Weinberg… «We've all heard Leon Sachs' solo more than once, but every time one is struck by the unbelievable stability of his playing, the warm, soothing sound, the flawless «sniper» intonation and the high culture of his musical language. Let's thank him for that!». From 1943 to 1977 – alongside giving numerous concerts – Leon Sachs was teaching, he taught at the Gnessin Ten Year School and the Gnessin Seven Year School, at the Moscow Conservatory College, at the Gnessin Institute. He died on August 1977 at the 34th kilometer of the Epidavros-Corinth Road, Greece, he is buried at the Golovin Cemetery in Moscow together with his wife Muza Denisova. Grigory Unan
