Boyd Gilmore

Boyd Gilmore was an American Delta blues singer and songwriter. Among the songs he wrote were "All in My Dreams", "Believe I'll Settle Down", "I Love My Little Woman" and "If That's Your Girl". Gilmore recorded a version of fellow Delta bluesman Robert Johnson's track, "Ramblin' on My Mind", he could play guitar. According to AllMusic, he was "an exuberant singer". Sources vary over the details of his birth. Gilmore was either born near Inverness, Mississippi, in 1905, or to Sam Gilmore and Luella Bryant on June 12, 1910 in Belzoni, Mississippi, he recorded "Ramblin' on My Mind" on January 23, 1952, at Casablanca Lounge in Greenville, which he sang with accompaniment by Ike Turner on piano and Jesse "Cleanhead" Love on drums. The track was released with "Just an Army Boy" on the B-side. At the same session, Gilmore recorded several other songs, including "All in My Dreams" and "Take a Little Walk with Me", which were released by Modern as a single. James Scott Jr. accompanied him on guitar, but his part fell victim to early recording technology, as an introduction and guitar break from Elmore James's "Please Find My Baby" was spliced into "All in My Dreams".

Gilmore recorded "Believe I'll Settle Down" for Sun Records in Memphis, Tennessee in July 1953, accompanied by Pinetop Perkins on piano, Earl Hooker on guitar and Willie Nix on drums, but like some of his earlier recordings, it was not released at the time. After his brief recording career, Gilmore performed in juke joints in the Delta for a while, he performed in St. Louis and Pine Bluff, during which period he lived in a boarded-up abandoned house. During the years he lived in Pine Bluff and Houston Stackhouse performed together, as they had in the early 1950s. Whilst in Pine Bluff, he performed at a small club called Jack Rabbitts. In the late 1960s, Gilmore settled in California and lived there until his death on December 23, 1976, he was interred at Odd Fellows Cemetery in California. 1952: "Ramblin' On My Mind" / "Just An Army Boy" 1952: "All In My Dreams" / "Take A Little Walk With Me" 1966: Memphis....

Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society

The Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society is an organization based in the US which supports research on matters of hyperbaric medicine and physiology, provides a certificate of added qualification for physicians with an unrestricted license to practice medicine and for limited licensed practitioners, at the completion of the Program for Advanced Training in Hyperbaric Medicine. They support an extensive library and are a primary source of information for diving and hyperbaric medicine physiology worldwide; the Undersea Medical Society grew from the close associations of a small group of scientists. These men realized after a series of International Symposia on Underwater Physiology, initiated by the University of Pennsylvania and the Office of Naval Research that there was a need to stimulate in the field of undersea medicine; this group consisted of diving and aerospace Dr's Edward L. Beckman, Jack L. Kinsey, Christian J. Lambertsen, Walter F. Mazzone, Earl H. Ninow, Robert D. Workman; the key decision from this meeting was that Dr. Lambertsen was charged with writing the Constitution and establishing the Society.

They decided that the Aerospace Medical Association could be the initial home of the UMS. On 10 April 1967, a meeting was held in Washington, D. C. to elect the Society officers and Executive committee. There were 88 charter members and the founding Executive committee was made up of Dr's Edward L. Beckman, Albert R. Behnke, George F. Bond, Wallace O. Fenn, Jack L. Kinsey, Christian J. Lambertsen, Walter F. Mazzone, Earl H. Ninow, Heinz R. Schreiner, Robert D. Workman. By 1973, the UMS had grown to the point of needing an office and hired Charles W. Shilling as the first Executive secretary. By the next year, the UMS established Undersea Biomedical Research; the journal continued under this name until 1993 when it was changed to Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine Journal. In 1986, the UMS changed its name to the current one; the name change reflected the growing interest in hyperbaric oxygen physiology and therapy. The UHMS's purpose is to provide scientific information to protect the health of sport and commercial divers and to improve the scientific basis of hyperbaric oxygen therapy, promote sound treatment protocols and standards of practice and provide CME accreditation within its field.

UHMS definition of hyperbaric oxygen therapy: The patient breathes 100% oxygen intermittently while the pressure of the treatment chamber is increased to greater than one atmosphere absolute. Current information indicates; this may occur in a single person multiplace chamber. Breathing 100% oxygen at 1 atm abs or exposing isolated parts of the body to 100% oxygen does not constitute HBO therapy. UHMS approved Indications: The following indications are approved uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy as defined by the Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Committee. Air or gas embolism Carbon monoxide poisoningCarbon Monoxide Poisoning Complicated by Cyanide Poisoning Central retinal artery occlusion Clostridal Myositis and Myonecrosis Crush Injury, Compartment syndrome, other Acute Traumatic Ischemias Decompression sickness Enhancement of Healing in Selected Problem Wounds Exceptional Blood Loss Intracranial Abscess Necrotizing Soft Tissue Infections Osteomyelitis Delayed Radiation Injury Skin Grafts & Flaps Thermal Burns Medical training in Hyperbaric Medicine occurs through a post graduate medical fellowship.

Hyperbaric medicine fellowships in the United States are approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education under the American Board of Preventive Medicine, the American Board of Emergency Medicine, by the American Osteopathic Association under the American Osteopathic Association Bureau of Osteopathic Specialists. The UHMS provides a certificate of added qualification for physicians with an unrestricted license to practice medicine and for limited licensed practitioners, at the completion of the Program for Advanced Training in Hyperbaric Medicine. Training and certification for hyperbaric technology is offered by the National Board of Diving and Hyperbaric Medical Technology; the UHMS Charles W. Shilling Library is the largest repository of diving and hyperbaric research and clinical information—current and historical—in the world; the library is located at the Duke University Medical Center Library in Durham, NC. The collection consists of books, reports, symposia, conference proceedings, annotated bibliographies spanning the fields of diving and marine medicine.

There is a small newsletter collection dealing with diving safety and diving medicine. The library has extensive reprint files of articles, cataloged by author, related to diving and hyperbaric medicine and dating back to the 1930s. Many of the UHMS publications have been scanned and are available online at the Rubicon Research Repository. Other articles can be found in the DUMC Archive finding aids.

Debitel AG is one of the largest mobile telephone services providers in Europe, offering a wide range of telecommunication products – mobile and land-line telephony as well internet services. At its peak, the business commanded a 47% market share of the mobile service provider market in Germany with 12.4% of the overall mobile telephone market as of 2004. The company boasted over 10.2 million customers of. The company was founded in 1991 by Debis, a subsidiary of German car maker Daimler Benz before being sold in 2004 to a German holding company of Swiss telecommunications giant Swisscom. In June 2004, Permira, an international private equity firm, acquired Swisscom's 95% stake in Debitel. In 2006 it was announced that Debitel would merge with _dug telecom AG, a German telecommunications company with 430 outlets of its own, founded in 1993 as a mobile telephone direct sales company called ‘Dittrich und Grella’. Including the 1100 employees of _dug, by March 2008 the merged company employed 4000 people.

In October 2008 the company owned 500 outlets in Germany, marketing what are known in Germany as'tariff-based' products under the Debitel brand on behalf of network providers such as T-Mobile, E-Plus and O2. Debitel sold land-line services at this time for Deutsche Telekom's T-Home brand, Arcor, O2 DSL, Alice and Freenet. In July 2007 Debitel was granted permission by the EU Commission to take over Elmshorn-based telecommunications company Talkline. Debitel subsequently consolidated the administration of the merged companies and downsized human resources leading to the loss of 700 jobs at Talkline and the announcement that Talkline operations would close by 2010. In April 2008, Freenet AG announced it would purchase Debitel from Permira including all liabilities for approx. 1.6 billion euros. Official website
