Shire of Nanango

The Shire of Nanango was a local government area located in the South Burnett region of Queensland, about 100 kilometres northwest of the capital, Brisbane. The Shire covered an area of 1,738.4 square kilometres, existed as a local government entity from 1879 until 2008, when it amalgamated with several other councils in the South Burnett area to become the South Burnett Regional Council. Barambah Division was created on 11 November 1879 as one of 74 divisions around Queensland under the Divisional Boards Act 1879 with a population of 1539. On 23 February 1882, there was a realignment of boundaries between Wambo Division and Barambah Division, involving subdivision 3 of Wambo Division and subdivisions 1 and 2 of Barambah Division. Kilkivan Division was created on 1 July 1886 from the western part of the Widgee Division and part of the Barambah Division under the Divisional Boards Act 1879. However, the changes to Widgee's boundaries were not welcomed by the Widgee Divisional Board; the government hastily abolished Kilkivan Division on 30 July 1886, only four weeks after it was created, leading to protests by the residents of Kilkivan.

Arguments about boundaries continued for a year. Kilkivan Division was re-constituted on 17 November 1887, comprising part of No. 2 subdivision of Widgee Division and part of the No. 2 subdivision and all of the No. 3 subdivision of Barambah Division, to be governed by a board of six members. In 1888, Barambah Division was renamed Nanango Division. With the passage of the Local Authorities Act 1902, the Nanango Division became the Shire of Nanango on 31 March 1903. On 15 March 2008, under the Local Government Act 2007 passed by the Parliament of Queensland on 10 August 2007, the Shire of Nanango merged with the Shires of Kingaroy and Wondai to form the South Burnett Regional Council; the Shire of Nanango included the following settlements: Nanango Benarkin Blackbutt Brooklands Bunya Mountains Maidenwell 1909: E.

Stevenson Magloire

Stevenson Magloire was a painter born in Pétion-Ville, Haiti. He is the son of a founder of the School of Soleil art movement. Magloire's paintings are bold and expressionistic incorporating people and Vodou and Christian symbolism. Magloire was named after a politician in the United States. Uncommon in Haiti, his given name was so misspelled as "Stivenson" by registration clerks and school officials, that he used that spelling himself. Magloire was the son of another famous Haitian artist, Louisiane Saint Fleurant, his brother, Ramphis chose art as an avocation. A collectable artist by the mid-1990s, Magloire was assassinated on October 9, 1994, he was stoned to death by paramilitary attachés of the Raoul Cédras military junta while walking on the street in Port-au-Prince. His death was memorialized by his friend, Richard A. Morse, in the ballad Ayizan, released by the rasin band RAM on their second album, Puritan Vodou, in 1997.

American College of Cardiology

The American College of Cardiology, based in Washington, D. C. is a nonprofit medical association established in 1949. It bestows credentials upon cardiovascular specialists. Education is a core component of the college, active in the formulation of health policy and the support of cardiovascular research; the American College of Cardiology was chartered and incorporated as a teaching institution in 1949, established its headquarters, called Heart House, in Bethesda, Maryland, in 1977. In 2006, the college relocated to Washington, D. C.'s West End neighborhood. Past papers for the institution are held at the National Library of Medicine in Maryland; the college is governed by its officers, including the president, president-elect, vice president, treasurer, chief executive officer and board of trustees. Members of the board of governors serve as grassroots liaisons between the local chapters and the college's national headquarters; the president serves a one-year term. The American College of Cardiology has 50,000 members, including physicians, registered nurses, clinical nurse specialists, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, doctors of pharmacology and practice administrators, specializing in cardiovascular care.

Becoming a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, associate fellow or affiliate member is based on training, specialty board certification and professional accomplishments and duration of active participation in a cardiovascular related field. At least 75 percent of professional activities must be devoted to the field of cardiovascular disease; those achieving highest distinction in the field are awarded the title Master of the American College of Cardiology, bestowed upon a maximum of three practicing cardiologists each year. The college maintains 48 chapters in the U. S. and Puerto Rico. Chapters are distinct entities from national organization and do not share budgets or staffing. Since 2008, national members have automatically become members of a local chapter; as early as the 1980s, the college partnered with the American Heart Association to develop the first clinical practice guidelines for cardiovascular practice. In the 1990s, the college used the guidelines to lay the groundwork for studies documenting discrepancies best and actual cardiovascular practices.

The college works with national organizations such as the National Heart and Blood Institute to continually develop and update these guidelines. In 2000, the college partnered with the American Heart Association to begin development and publication of national performance measurement standards and data standards for both inpatient and outpatient care based on the guidelines. Measurement sets include: coronary artery disease, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, cardiac rehabilitation, myocardial infarction, primary prevention and peripheral arterial disease. In addition, the college has submitted its measures to the National Quality Forum, with the majority of its measures receiving endorsement as national standards; the college has collaborated with specialty societies to undertake the task of developing and publishing clinical data standards. Clinical data standards developed include those for acute coronary syndrome, atrial fibrillation, heart failure and electrophysiology; the college has published criteria for single-photon emission computed tomography myocardial perfusion imaging, computed tomography of the heart and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging, resting transthoracic and transesophageal echocardiography, coronary revascularization.

The college's National Cardiovascular Data Registry is a source for measuring and quantifying outcomes and identifying gaps in the delivery of quality care. Its data are used in select pay-for-reporting and/or performance programs to demonstrate the benefits and challenges of such incentive programs. To date, the college has developed five hospital-based cardiovascular registries. In addition, the PINNACLE Registry is the nation's first and largest practice-based cardiovascular registry. In 2011, the college and The Society of Thoracic Surgeons launched the STS/ACC TVT Registry, which tracks transcatheter valve therapy procedures. Several key quality initiatives are underway to help translate science into practice and improve outcomes for cardiovascular patients; these projects include the Door to Balloon Alliance, Hospital to Home and Imaging in FOCUS. Launched in November 2006, the Door to Balloon Alliance is focused on helping hospital not only reduce, but sustain the guideline-recommended time of 90 minutes or less from the time a patient with chest pain arrives at an emergency room until they have a balloon dilatation procedure.

The alliance provides hospitals with the evidence-based strategies and resources to focus on process improvement, interdisciplinary cooperation and coordination to impact their door-to-balloon times, thus, improve patient outcomes. The Hospital to Home initiative, led by both the American College of Cardiology and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement, is a national quality improvement campaign to reduce cardiovascular-related hospital rehospitalizations and improve the transition from inpatient to outpatient status for individuals hospitalized with cardiovascular disease. Launched in 2009, it seeks to address readmission problems. Imaging in FOCUS is a community designed to guide implementation of appropriate use criteria and ensure patients are receiving the right care at the right time; the American College of Cardiology Foundati
