Japan: Outfitting and Inspections in Progress at New USNHO Facility

first_img View post tag: New Japan: Outfitting and Inspections in Progress at New USNHO Facility View post tag: News by topic February 8, 2013 View post tag: progress View post tag: Japan View post tag: Outfitting Share this article View post tag: Naval View post tag: Inspections View post tag: Navy View post tag: facility Industry news Back to overview,Home naval-today Japan: Outfitting and Inspections in Progress at New USNHO Facility View post tag: usa Outfitting and inspections are currently in progress at the new U.S. Naval Hospital Okinawa (USNHO) facility on Camp Foster, and planning is underway to transfer hospital operations to the new facility in March of 2013.The replacement hospital, located on Camp Foster, will have the same capabilities as the current facility on Camp Lester.According to Navy Medicine West Detachment officials overseeing the new hospital construction project, the construction stage of the facility is finished, Japan government inspections are complete, and the building is currently being outfitted with equipment and supplies to support healthcare needs. The building and its satellite facilities are also undegoing U.S. government inspections of internal systems, such as the fire alarm and suppression systems to ensure the best possible safe, timely, and quality patient care.The outfitting process involves a wide range of activities from assembling and placing office furniture to installing and calibrating sophisticated medical equipment.As with any project of this scale, careful planning is essential, and hospital officials stress that flexibility is the key to a safe and successful transition.“For example, if we have a critical patient in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or adult intensive care unit (ICU) that can’t be moved on the date the unit is supposed to move, we will reschedule. The NICU, ICU, and all of the critical support functions the patient needs-laboratory, pharmacy, etcetera – will remain available at Camp Lester until it’s safe to move our inpatient,” said Capt. Pius A. Aiyelawo, commanding officer, USNHO. “The hospital will continue to provide uninterrupted health care leading up to and throughout the transition to the new hospital,” said Aiyelawo.The 443,000 square foot facility is almost double the size of the previous hospital on Camp Lester. The hospital is constructed to withstand earthquakes, and is situated on high ground outside of the tsunami flood zone. The building boasts modern electrical and medical gas systems, and incorporates a number of energy efficient features such as internal “light courts” that fill the building with natural light.“This new military treatment facility will represent the leading edge in medical facility design and embody our continued commitment to providing patient and family centered care to those entrusted to our care,” said Aiyelawo.According to USNHO officials in charge of the transition project, the hospital will publicly announce the dates the move will take place.“Once all of the physical and administrative requirements to safely set up and deliver care at the new facility are met, we will move in,” said Aiyelawo.The construction project was part of the implementation plan resulting from the U.S. – Japan Special Action Committee Okinawa agreement from 1996, which directed that a new naval hospital be built on Camp Foster to replace the facility on Camp Lester. Construction on the new hospital and support facilities began in March 2009.The design of the new hospital facility also incorporates such features as improved handicap access, more spacious patient care areas, and energy efficient technology. When the entire compound is completed in 2015, the hospital will have additional parking availability with nearly 1,300 spaces.The USNHO Labor and Delivery Department delivers an average of 100 babies each month, and hospital officials point out that the new Mother Infant Care Center (MICC) will offer an improved birthing experience for expecting mothers and their families. The MICC will have 14 private patient rooms. Each room will incorporate a modern labor and delivery concept where a single room is used for labor, delivery, recovery, and post-partum care. Each labor, delivery, recovery, and postpartum room also features its own bath/shower room as well as sleeping accommodations for an additional family member.USNHO is the largest overseas military treatment facility in the Navy, serving a beneficiary population of 55,000 active duty personnel, family members, civilian employees, contract personnel, and retirees. The facility also provides referral services for more than 189,000 beneficiaries throughout the Western Pacific.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 8, 2013; Image: USNHO View post tag: USNHOlast_img read more

O.C. Schools to Reopen With Hybrid Learning Model

first_imgThe Ocean City School District has been working vigorously for months to create a proactive plan for reopening their schools come September as well as their Virtual Learning Academy program, according to a school press release Thursday. After being carefully examined by officials, the reopening plan has been verified that it checks all boxes of the New Jersey Department of Education reopening guidelines, despite ever-changing restraints involving COVID-19.“I want to reassure you that in Ocean City, we have worked through those health and safety standards, followed the CDC’s Health Guidelines and Considerations for Schools, and consulted exhaustively with our County Health Department to develop our Return to School Plan,” Schools Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Taylor said in a letter to the district.She continued, “When we open with a hybrid-learning environment, we will both prioritize student and staff safety and maximize opportunities for in-person instruction. We are ready.”Based on the review done by Interim County Executive Superintendent Dr. Judith DeStefano and her office, the Cape May County Office of Education determined the Ocean City school district’s plan contains all of the elements on the NJDOE Roadback Plan Checklist. It also concluded the plan will help provide a safe environment for students and teachers, according to the press release. DeStefano commended the school district on the conception of their plan.“We want to thank you for your adherence both to the timeliness of the submission of the plan and for the accuracy and attention to detail that you used in its development,” DeStefano said in the release. “Your diligence and determination to address all expectations are always appreciated.”Ocean City School District students will return to in-classroom education combined with remote learning starting September 8. The Hybrid Plan and additional guidelines can be found on the district website.For more information and to view Dr. Kathleen Taylor’s letter, visit www.oceancityschools.org. Students will have virtual classes Monday.last_img read more

Of books, trees, and knowledge

first_imgTo Ling Guo, a curator for the Beijing Botanic Garden, one of the best places to learn about Chinese crab apples is half a world away, in Harvard’s Arnold Arboretum Horticultural Library.Guo was wrapping up two months at the Arboretum as a visiting scientist and a recipient of the Jewett Prize, which supports researchers studying flowers and fruits.Guo, one of the world’s foremost experts on crab apples, has been creating an updated checklist of all the world’s varieties for use by her home institution as it takes over the rotating role managing the international crab apple registry, which helps monitor and assign names for new varieties.“Here, we say, is the crab apple’s motherland,” Guo said. “That is why I have come to make my checklist. They have a huge collection of books, even back more than 200 years. It’s really amazing.”Monographs on crab apples are just a tiny portion of the Arboretum’s library, according to Head of the Library and Archives Lisa Pearson. Occupying the third floor of the Arboretum’s Hunnewell Building, the library and companion archives contain 40,000 volumes, covering topics including plant and garden history, plant disease, landscape design, soil science, and dendrology. The collection includes biographies of important figures in botany, the papers of Harvard scientists, the records of Arboretum plantings, as well as copies of botanical journals, monographs, and other scholarly works. In addition, 60,000 more Arboretum volumes are currently held in the larger Harvard University Botany Libraries in Cambridge.Among the library’s most prized holdings are 47,000 photographs. Many are on glass plates, portraying a visual record of exploratory expeditions to China that were begun by famed plant explorer Ernest H. Wilson. There are other photos from around the world. The earliest photos, Pearson said, date to about1885, shortly after the Arboretum’s founding, and show the Arboretum itself more than a century ago.Arboretum Director William (Ned) Friedman, the Arnold Professor of Organismic and Evolutionary Biology, said that the Arboretum’s photographic archives are an important resource, valuable for botanical, horticultural, ethnographic, and environmental scholars, and that the library itself, though an important resource for modern scholars, looks much as it did in the decades after the Arboretum’s founding.“These extraordinary images of China, Korea, and Japan, taken by a series of intrepid Arboretum plant explorers a century ago, document not only the amazing plants of Asia but also the landscape, diversity of cultures, and architecture,” Friedman said. “And standing in the library, which is much as it was when Charles Sprague Sargent presided over the founding and first 50 years of the Arnold Arboretum, is to be transported back in time.”To Pearson, who was appointed head librarian last year after starting there as an intern from Simmons College in 2001, an Arboretum gem is its rare books. Her favorite is a large 18th-century copy of Mark Catesby’s “The Natural History of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands,” which describes, in words and colorful plates, plants and associated insects and birds.“The library is a place of learning, not only for the staff and researchers, but for me, too,” Pearson said. “I literally learn something new every day, and if I can then put that knowledge to work to teach the history of the Arboretum, or of plant exploration, or help a staff member locate an obscure fact in the archives, I think I have done a good day’s work.”To scholars around the world, one of the library’s major strengths is the fact that its holdings reflect the living collections outside its walls, planted on the Arboretum’s grounds.The Arboretum itself is a 281-acre, living museum of botanical specimens that doubles as a public park. Designed by Sargent and Frederick Law Olmsted, and operated in partnership with the city of Boston, the Arboretum is a National Historic Landmark whose diverse plantings of trees, shrubs, and vines contain a heavy representation of both North American and temperate Asian species.Scholars interested in particular species or groups of species — such as crab apples — can find historical and scientific information in the library, archives, and the herbarium, and then walk outside and examine living specimens, a combination that has exerted a powerful pull for at least a century, Pearson said.“One Chinese scholar who was here in 1915 said in a newspaper interview that it’s much easier to come and do research at the Arnold Arboretum, where Chinese plants were growing and where the herbarium was complete,” Pearson said. “He said it would take him years and years to see all of the different Chinese plants he would want to see in his country.”The Arnold Arboretum has posted its fall schedule of activities, including a guided tour of the Arboretum’s landscape at 10:30 a.m., Aug. 30.last_img read more

Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team advances to Intercollegiate Championship

first_imgShowcasing their knowledge of topics ranging from Greek mythology to Civil War battles, the Notre Dame Quiz Bowl team went undefeated in the National Academic Quiz Tournaments Great Lakes Sectional, securing their spot in the 2019 Intercollegiate Championship. The Division II team competed against 17 other schools and is one of only 28 teams to be invited to the national competition.“We knew we had a good shot at winning but we also knew we wanted to have a good time,” sophomore Ricky Rivera said. “You kind of have to treat it like every other tournament.”Members of the team who qualified for the Intercollegiate Championship include sophomores Rivera, Alex Hymes, Nicholas Mungan and Spencer Brown and freshman Alexander Kuptel. The competition features a variety of different question categories including literature, science, music, geography and sports. Kuptel said he appreciated the diversity of interests among his teammates.“It’s far better to have a team where each player has deep individual knowledge about a specific subject than a team where everyone is a generalist,” Kuptel said.Mungan said the team encourages each other to follow their interests, especially when studying for classes or reading for pleasure.“More serious teams would actually prescribe subjects for people to study but we don’t like to do that,” Mungan said. “Everybody just studies what they want to learn and what they love.”The Quiz Bowl team meets for two hours twice a week to prepare for upcoming tournaments, running through practice questions and competing against each other to sharpen their skills.Many members of the team have been involved in quiz bowl competitions since middle school. Each person has a unique reason for joining the team, including freshman Grace Ma.“One of the main reasons I like Quiz Bowl is because you learn a lot of stuff in class but you don’t always get to apply the stuff you really care about or more obscure pieces of knowledge,” Ma said. “Classes can be pretty general but in Quiz Bowl, if you know detailed information, you get points for that. I really like that.”Freshman Blaise von Ohlen said he admires the competitive aspect of quiz bowl and he enjoys the reward for his hard work and studying.“There’s a really great payoff when you know something obscure and no one else knows it in the room,” von Ohlen said. “It’s a very rewarding feeling.”During study breaks, senior and one of the team’s co-vice president Alaina Anderson said the team possesses natural chemistry and often feels like a family.“We do a lot of bonding outside of practice,” Anderson said. “We go to Legends Trivia Nights and we all hang out afterward. We go out of our way to make it a very welcoming and friendly group.”The team will arrive at the Intercollegiate Championship in Chicago on Saturday, April 6, with hopes of returning home with a victory, Rivera said.“I can say we’re pretty confident,” Rivera said. “We have a mental toughness where we know we can beat anyone on the schedule.”Tags: intercollegiate championship, Notre Dame Quiz Bowl, quiz bowllast_img read more

Suit Claims Jamestown Brewing Company Owes $1,000s In Back Rent, Seeks Eviction

first_imgWNYNewsNow File Image.JAMESTOWN – A lawsuit filed Tuesday seeks to evict the Jamestown Brewing Company from their downtown location after the company allegedly failed to timely pay rent.The suit was filed in Erie County Supreme Court by Buffalo attorney Matthew Miller of Rupp Baase Pfalzgraf Cunningham LLC on behalf of GPatti Enterprises who owns the building the brewers rents at the corner of Third and Washington Streets.GPatti Enterprises says the brewery owes more than $85,000 in base rent.The suit says that the brewers made partial rent payments in November and December. “Despite trying to work with JBC, only a tiny portion of the base rent due has been paid,” the lawsuit states. “By way of context, JBC also has failed to pay any of its other rent obligations required by the lease agreement, including the construction rent, additional rent, percentage rent or TI interest. Similarly, JBC has failed to make any of its contractual utility payments or tax payments.”“Left with no option, GPatti hereby seeks to exercise its right under the lease to, ‘through summary proceedings reenter and take possession of the premises, repossess the same, expel (JBC) and those claiming through or under (JBC), and remove the effects of both or either.”Owners John McClellan I and John McClellan II first entered into a lease agreement in August 2017.The brewers first opened for business in July, but closed briefly after not receiving a liquor license. The license was eventually obtained later in the year.
