The United States Department of Health & Human Services known as the Health Department, is a cabinet-level department of the U. S. federal government with the goal of protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services. Its motto is "Improving the health and well-being of America". Before the separate federal Department of Education was created in 1979, it was called the Department of Health and Welfare. HHS is administered by the Secretary of Health and Human Services, appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate; the United States Public Health Service is the main division of the HHS and is led by the Assistant Secretary for Health. The current Secretary, Alex Azar, assumed office on January 29, 2018, upon his appointment by President Trump and confirmation by the Senate; the United States Public Health Service Commissioned Corps, the uniformed service of the PHS, is led by the Surgeon General, responsible for addressing matters concerning public health as authorized by the Secretary or by the Assistant Secretary of Health in addition to his or her primary mission of administering the Commissioned Corps.
The Federal Security Agency was established on July 1, 1939, under the Reorganization Act of 1939, P. L. 76-19. The objective was to bring together in one agency all federal programs in the fields of health and social security; the first Federal Security Administrator was Paul V. McNutt; the new agency consisted of the following major components: Office of the Administrator, Public Health Service, Office of Education, Civilian Conservation Corps, Social Security Board. By 1953, the Federal Security Agency's programs in health and social security had grown to such importance that its annual budget exceeded the combined budgets of the Departments of Commerce, Justice and Interior and affected the lives of millions of people. In accordance with the Reorganization Act of 1949, President Eisenhower submitted to the Congress on March 12, 1953, Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953, which called for the dissolution of the Federal Security Agency and elevation of the agency to Cabinet status as the Department of Health and Welfare.
The plan was approved April 1, 1953, became effective on April 11, 1953. Unlike statutes authorizing the creation of other executive departments, the contents of Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953 were never properly codified within the United States Code, although Congress did codify a statute ratifying the Plan. Today, the Plan is included as an appendix to Title 5 of the United States Code; the result is that HHS is the only executive department whose statutory foundation today rests on a confusing combination of several codified and uncodified statutes. The Department of Health and Welfare was created on April 11, 1953, when Reorganization Plan No. 1 of 1953 became effective. HEW thus became the first new Cabinet-level department since the Department of Labor was created in 1913; the Reorganization Plan abolished the FSA and transferred all of its functions to the Secretary of HEW and all components of the Agency to the Department. The first Secretary of HEW was Oveta Culp Hobby, a native of Texas, who had served as Commander of the Women's Army Corps in World War II and was editor and publisher of the Houston Post.
Sworn in on April 11, 1953, as Secretary, she had been FSA Administrator since January 21, 1953. The six major program-operating components of the new Department were the Public Health Service, the Office of Education, the Food and Drug Administration, the Social Security Administration, the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation, St. Elizabeth's Hospital; the Department was responsible for three federally aided corporations: Howard University, the American Printing House for the Blind, the Columbia Institution for the Deaf. The Department of Health and Welfare was renamed the Department of Health & Human Services in 1979, when its education functions were transferred to the newly created United States Department of Education under the Department of Education Organization Act. HHS was left in charge of the Social Security Administration, agencies constituting the Public Health Service, Family Support Administration. In 1995, the Social Security Administration was removed from the Department of Health & Human Services, established as an independent agency of the executive branch of the United States Government.
The 2010 United States federal budget established a reserve fund of more than $630 billion over 10 years to finance fundamental reform of the health care system. The Department of Health & Human Services is led by the United States Secretary of Health and Human Services, a member of the United States Cabinet appointed by the President of the United States with the consent of the United States Senate; the Secretary is assisted in managing the Department by the Deputy Secretary of Health and Human Services, appointed by the President. The Secretary and Deputy Secretary are further assisted by seven Assistant Secretaries, who serve as top Departmental administrators; as of Jan. 20, 2018, this is the top level of the organizational chart. HHS provides further organizational detail on its website. Several agencies within HHS are components of the USPHS or Public Health Service.

Emilio "El Indio" Fernández was a Mexican film director and screenwriter. He was one of the most prolific film directors of the Golden Age of Mexican cinema in the 1940s and 1950s, he is best known for his work as director of the film María Candelaria, which won the Palme d'Or award at the 1946 Cannes Film Festival. As an actor, he worked in numerous film productions in Hollywood. Born in Sabinas, Coahuila, on March 26, 1904, Emilio Fernández Romo was the son of a revolutionary general, while his mother was a descendant of Kickapoo Indians, he was the older brother of the Mexican actor Jaime Fernández. From his parents he inherited a deep feeling and love for his country, as well as its customs and indigenous beliefs, that led him to build his personality as a man of impetuous character. From his earliest years and throughout his life, he was characterized by a strong personality, brash character and pride in his indigenous roots, traits forged by the great influence exercised on him by his family.
When he was a teenager, a fatal event forced him to flee his home and enlist in the ranks of the Mexican Revolution. He entered the Mexican Military Academy. In 1923 he took part in the uprising of Adolfo de la Huerta against the government of Álvaro Obregón, but this insurrection failed and he was sent to prison, he escaped, left Mexico to go into exile, first in Chicago and in Los Angeles. There he earned his living as a laundry employee, longshoreman, press assistant, as a stonemason for Hollywood studio construction, a circumstance that favored his foray into film as an extra and as a double for stars like Douglas Fairbanks. Fernández was the model for the Oscar statuette. According to the legend, in 1928 MGM's art director Cedric Gibbons, one of the original Motion Picture Academy members, was tasked with creating the Academy Award trophy. In need of a model for his statuette, Gibbons was introduced by his future wife, actress Dolores del Río, to Fernández. Fernández had to be persuaded to pose nude for what is today known as the "Oscar".
His appearance in the film industry, though casual at first, became a commitment, encouraged by the same De la Huerta, who told him: Mexico does not want or need more revolutions Emilio. You are in the Mecca of film, film is the most effective tool we humans have invented to express ourselves. Learn to make movies and you return to our homeland with that knowledge. Make our films so you can express your ideas so they reach thousands of people. In 1930 he had an experience that marked his career as a creator: his stay in the United States coincided with the arrival in the country of Sergei Eisenstein, he went to private screenings of Eisenstein's films, which impressed him, revealing a style, different from that used in Hollywood aesthetics. Three years he was influenced by seeing fragments of Que viva Mexico!, which consolidated his desire to make films with a relentless and direct style, where the exaltation of both the strength and the beauty of Mexico was evident. Over time, this was evident in most of his films, in which the aesthetics of the Revolution, the evocation of Mexican natural landscapes and the exaltation of patriotism are constants.
He returned to Mexico in 1933, thanks to an amnesty granted by the government, with the firm decision to continue his film career, but during the first year he made a living as a boxer, a diver in Acapulco, a baker and an aviator. In 1934, he appeared in the film Cruz Diablo, directed by Fernando de Fuentes, his looks landed him a starring role playing a native in Janitzio by Carlos Navarro. "El Indio" continued performing melodramas and folklore films. In 1941, with the financial support of General John F. Azcárate and the encouragement of his friend, the actor David Silva, he filmed La isla de la pasión with which he made his debut as a director; that same year he traveled to Cuba where he met the woman who would be his first wife, Gladys Fernandez, he adopted her daughter Adela. In 1943 he was contacted by the Mexican film Studios Films Mundiales. Emilio Fernández, Mauricio Magdaleno, Gabriel Figueroa, Dolores del Río and Pedro Armendáriz, creating the team that achieved the biggest blockbusters of the time.
Their first work together was Flor silvestre, the film that debuted Dolores del Río in the Mexican cinema. Next, Fernández filmed María Candelaria, for which he was awarded the Palm d'Or at Cannes along with Gabriel Figueroa, he developed his own style which had such an effect in the industry that his portrayal of rural Mexico became a standard for the film industry, became the image of Mexico in the world. In 1945, based on the history of American writer John Steinbeck, Fernández filmed La perla, one of the most important films in his long filmography, considered by critics as a work of art which portrays a story of ignorance and human misery, achieved by the superb photography of Figueroa and rigorous direction of Fernández, it is an allegory about the limits of wickedness of man in his desire for power. This film won the award for Best Cinematography, a mention for Best Film contribution to progress in the Venice Film Festival, it received the Silver Ariel for Best Picture, Male Performance and Photography.

William Howard Taft IV is an attorney who has served in the United States government under several Republican administrations. He is the great-grandson of President William Howard Taft. Taft was born in Washington, D. C. the second child of William Howard Taft III and Barbara Bradfield, a great-grandson of U. S. President William Howard Taft. Taft attended St. Paul's School, graduating in 1962, he earned his bachelor of arts degree in English from Yale University in 1966 and his law degree from Harvard Law School in 1969. He and his late wife, Julia Vadala Taft, had three children—Maria Consetta Taft, Julia Harris Taft, William Howard Taft V. After researching the FTC as one of "Nader's Raiders", Taft served as attorney adviser to the chairman of the Federal Trade Commission in 1970. From 1970 to 1973, he was the principal assistant to Caspar W. Weinberger, deputy director director, of the Office of Management and Budget in the Executive Office of the President under President Richard Nixon. Taft assisted him in the management of the budgetary process, policy review, program oversight for the entire federal government.
Taft married Julia Vadala in 1974. Taft served from 1973 to 1976 as the executive assistant to the United States Secretary of Health and Welfare. In April 1976 Taft was appointed by President Gerald Ford to serve as general counsel of the Department of Health and Welfare. In that post, as the chief lawyer for the department and the principal administrator of the Office of the General Counsel, he supervised over 350 lawyers in Washington and 10 regional offices. During the Carter administration, he was an attorney with the Washington, D. C. law firm of Leva, Symington and Oppenheimer. In February 1981, as one of his first appointments, President Ronald Reagan appointed Taft as General Counsel of the Department of Defense. Taft was appointed Deputy Secretary of Defense and served from January 1984 to April 1989, he served as acting Secretary of Defense from January to March 1989 after George H. W. Bush became president. Bush's initial nominee, John Tower, was not confirmed by the United States Senate after much contentious debate and testimony.
The eventual appointee confirmed in March was Richard B. Cheney. Although he was only acting Secretary of Defense, never confirmed as the permanent Secretary, he became the third member of his family to hold a position as civilian head of a military department, following his great-great-grandfather Alphonso Taft and his great-grandfather William Howard Taft. Taft served as U. S. Permanent Representative to NATO, which has the rank of ambassador, from 1989 to 1992, during the Gulf War. During the Clinton administration, Taft entered private practice with the Washington, D. C. law firm of Fried, Harris, Shriver & Jacobson. After the election of 2000, George W. Bush appointed Taft to serve as chief legal advisor to the United States Department of State under Secretary of State Colin Powell, with whom he was friends; this appointment was technically a lower appointment than he had held in other administrations, but it permitted him to work with his wife, Julia Taft, a top State Department official in charge of refugees who served during the Clinton administration.
While serving as Legal Adviser, Taft wrote two seminal law journal articles regarding the views of the United States on the legality of the use of military force. First, in connection with the decision of the International Court of Justice in the Oil Platforms case, Taft countered a series of propositions that the court appeared to accept regarding the principles governing the use of force; this included his conclusion that "There is no requirement in international law that a State exercising its right of self-defence must use the same degree or type of force used by the attacking State in its most recent attack. Rather, the proportionality of the measures taken in self-defence is to be judged according to the nature of the threat being addressed." Second, Taft coauthored an article in the Americal Journal of International Law that set forth the official United States Government view regarding the permissibility under international law of the use of force by the United States and Coalition forces during the 2003 invasion of Iraq.
The article concluded that the preemptive use of force in Iraq is lawful where, as in Iraq, "it represents an episode in an ongoing broader conflict initiated--without question-- by the opponent and where, as here, it is consistent with the resolutions of the Security Council. In 2004, Taft's name surfaced as a dissenter concerning the policy of interrogation techniques for military detainees. In a January 11, 2002, Taft opposed Department of Justice lawyers to argue that the president could not "suspend" U. S. obligations to respect the Geneva Conventions and that a legal argument to do so was "legally flawed and procedurally impossible." This was the position of Secretary Powell, who attempted to persuade Bush to reconsider. Alberto R. Gonzales, the White House counsel, subsequently advised Bush in a memo that Taft and Powell were wrong and the Justice Department's analysis was "definitive." Gonzales claimed terrorist attacks "require a new approach in our actions toward captured terrorists," and argued that if suspected terrorists had never respected the Geneva Conventions' human rights protections, the U.
S. didn't need to do so. After the re-election of President Bush, resignation of Colin Powell and appointment of Condoleezza Rice as secretary of state, Taft resigned to return to private practice, again at Frie
Trevor Alfred Charles Jones is a South African composer of film and television scores. Having spent much of his career in the United Kingdom, Jones has worked on numerous well-known and acclaimed films including Excalibur, Runaway Train, Mississippi Burning, The Last of the Mohicans, In the Name of the Father. Although not well known outside the film world, he has composed for numerous films and his music has been critically acclaimed for both its depth and emotion, he has been nominated for two Golden Globe Awards and three BAFTA Awards for Best Film Music. At the age of six, Jones had decided to become a film composer. In 1967 he attended the Royal Academy of Music in London with a scholarship and afterwards worked for five years for the BBC on reviews of radio and television music. In 1974 Jones attended the University of York from which he graduated with a master's degree in Film and Media Music. At the National Film and Television School Jones studied for three years on general film-making and film and sound techniques.
During this time he wrote the music for twenty-two student projects. In 1981 Jones wrote the score for the Academy Award-winning short movie The Dollar Bottom and for the short Black Angel. Jones was soon after brought to the attention of John Boorman, in the midst of making his Arthurian epic, Excalibur. Although tracked with classical music by Richard Wagner and Carl Orff, Boorman needed original dramatic cues for certain scenes. Given Excalibur's modest budget, a "name" composer was out of the question, so Boorman commissioned the up-and-coming young Jones. Excalibur brought Jones to the attention of Jim Henson, making The Dark Crystal, looking for a composer, young and eager to work in the experimental, free-wheeling way which Henson preferred; the resultant score is an expansive, multi-faceted work, featuring the London Symphony Orchestra, augmented by inventive use of Fairlight and Synclavier synthesizers, as well as period instruments like crumhorn and the unusual double-flageolet, which Jones came across by chance in a music store.
Jones followed Excalibur with scores for the horror films The Appointment and The Sender, the pirate adventure Nate and Hayes. In 1985 Jones composed one of his best scores, for the acclaimed television production The Last Place on Earth. Jones reunited with Henson for the 1986 fantasy musical Labyrinth. David Bowie wrote and performed the vocal tracks for this movie, including the hit "Underground", while Jones provided the dramatic score. Reflecting that his complex, symphonic score for The Dark Crystal garnered little notice, Jones began to re-think his entire approach to dramatic scoring. Around the mid-80s, Jones' work became more electronic-based, eschewing identifiable themes in favor of mood-enhancing synth chords and minimalist patterns. While he wrote a somber, chamber orchestra score in 1988 for Dominick and Eugene, scores like Angel Heart, Mississippi Burning and Sea of Love are more typical of Jones' output during this period. Jones' return to large-orchestra scoring came with 1990s Arachnophobia, he provided a light-hearted Georges Delerue-flavoured score for Blame it on the Bellboy in 1992.
Jones' most popular success came in 1992 with his score for The Last of the Mohicans, his soaring, passionate music belies the difficulties which afflicted its creation. Director Michael Mann asked Jones to provide an electronic score for the film, but late in the game, it was decided an orchestral score would be more appropriate for this historic epic. Jones hurried to re-fashion the score for orchestra in the limited time left, while the constant re-cutting of the film meant music cues sometimes had to be rewritten several times to keep up with the new timings. With the release date looming, composer Randy Edelman was called-in to score some minor scenes which Jones did not have time to do. Jones and Edelman received co-credit on the film. Although all were displeased with the circumstances, Jones was not fired from the film despite reports to the contrary. Jones became active in television in the 1990s, with orchestral scores for several Hallmark productions, including Gulliver's Travels and Cleopatra.
He provided a fun, jazzy, 1930s-style score for Richard III, which features a swing-band setting of Christopher Marlowe's The Passionate Shepherd to His Love. In 1997 Jones worked for the first time with Ridley Scott, providing an electronic/orchestral/rock-flavoured soundtrack for G. I. Jane. Marvel Nemesis: Rise of the Imperfects Max Steiner, Elmer Bernstein, Maurice Jarre, John Barry He is married to Victoria Seale and has four children, his South-African born uncle, the actor Norman Florence, together with his aunt Rhoda Florence and his cousin Peter Florence, together founded the Hay Festival in 1988, which Jones has attended every year since its inception.

No. 30 Transport Unit was a Royal Australian Air Force unit that operated during the Korean War. It was formed in November 1950 as No. 30 Communications Unit and based at Iwakuni, Japan, as part of No. 91 Wing. The unit was equipped with four Douglas C–47 Dakotas and two Austers, one of the Dakotas being the personal transport of Lieutenant General Sir Horace Robertson, commander of the British Commonwealth Occupation Force. Another four Dakotas were sent to Japan due to operational demands; the unit's role in Korea was to support No. 77 Squadron by transporting supplies and equipment. It delivered materials and stores to Australian and Commonwealth ground forces, transported VIPs of the United Nations Command. Return journeys to Japan were used to evacuate wounded personnel from the theatre. No. 30 Communications Unit was redesignated No. 30 Transport Unit in November 1951, re-formed as No. 36 Squadron in March 1953. The squadron remained in Korea following the armistice, returned to Australia in June 1955.
When the Korean War broke out on 25 June 1950, No. 77 Squadron of the Royal Australian Air Force was based at Iwakuni, having served with the British Commonwealth Occupation Force for four years. Equipped with North American P-51 Mustangs, the squadron operated a communications flight of two Douglas C-47 Dakotas and two Austers. Personnel were preparing to return to Australia when they were placed on standby for action over Korea. Following the landing at Inchon and the consequent advance northward of UNC troops, No. 77 Squadron relocated to Pohang, South Korea, on 12 October 1950. It left behind its main support elements at Iwakuni. No. 91 Wing was established at the base on 20 October and given administrative responsibility for all RAAF units operating during the conflict. As well as No. 77 Squadron, this included the newly formed No. 391 Squadron and No. 491 Squadron, No. 30 Communications Flight the No. 77 Squadron Communications Flight. The flight's original complement of two Dakotas and two Austers had been augmented in September 1950 by two more Dakotas from Australia.
On 1 November, the flight was designated No. 30 Communications Unit. No. 30 Communications Unit was headquartered at Iwakuni, along with the rest of No. 91 Wing's components except No. 77 Squadron, based on the Korean peninsula. It was commanded, unofficially, by Flight Lieutenant Dave Hitchens. According to Hitchens, "Having commanded the communications flight in No. 77 Squadron, I assumed control but had no formal authority to do so, but nobody told me to stop." The transport aircraft included the personal Dakota of the BCOF commander, Lieutenant General Sir Horace Robertson, operating under his direction. During November 1950, the unit received another four Dakotas from No. 38 Squadron, giving it a total strength of eight Dakotas and two Austers. It supported all Australian forces in Korea. One of its key functions was medical evacuation, but it was responsible for supply drops and rescue, mail delivery, as well as transporting cargo, VIPs. Unlike No. 77 Squadron, it was not tasked by the US Fifth Air Force but instead operated under Australian control, exercised through BCOF headquarters in Japan.
In December 1950 the unit undertook "Operation Haggis", the delivery of 180 pounds of haggis to the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders based in Suwon, Korea. The same month, a United States Air Force Mustang taking off from Suwon smashed into the cockpit of one of the Dakotas; the first official commanding officer of No. 30 Communications Unit, Squadron Leader John Gerber, took over from Hitchens on 28 January 1951. As of 31 March, the unit's strength was eight Dakotas and two Austers, fifty-seven personnel including twelve officers. According to the RAAF Historical Section, a "typical month" involved carrying over 1,000 troops, 180,000 pounds of cargo and 95,000 pounds of mail from Iwakuni to Korea, over 1,000 troops, 380 medical evacuees, 16,000 pounds of cargo and 32,000 pounds of mail from Korea to Iwakuni. No. 30 Communications Unit was redesignated No. 30 Transport Unit on 5 November 1951. One of its aircraft dropped a wreath over Hiroshima on 6 August 1952, the seventh anniversary of the atomic bombing.
As of 31 December 1952, its strength was eight Dakotas and one CAC Wirraway, fifty-nine personnel including eight officers. On 10 March 1953, No. 30 Transport Unit re-formed as No. 36 Squadron, which had disbanded the previous day at RAAF Base Richmond, New South Wales. Between the armistice in July and the end of August 1953, the squadron repatriated over 900 Commonwealth prisoners of war; as of 30 November 1954, its strength was seven Dakotas and one Wirraway, eighty-seven personnel including seven officers. Elements of No. 36 Squadron began returning to Australia in January 1955, by the end of the month its strength was four Dakotas and one Wirraway, fifty-eight personnel including five officers. Nominal operational control of the squadron was transferred to Fifth Air Force on 1 February 1955, though its purpose continued to be the support of Commonwealth forces. No. 36 Squadron ceased flying on 13 March, after which its remaining elements departed Iwakuni for Australia, leaving three Dakotas and a Wirraway that formed RAAF Transport Flight.
