“This is a tremendous achievement that we, and all of the citizens of Sussex County, should be immensely proud of,” Mr. Vincent said. “We all knew that ours was among the best emergency medical care systems in Delaware, the region, and across the nation. Now, we have independent proof that this is some of the best care that taxpayer dollars can buy.” GEORGETOWN, Del. — Sussex County Emergency Medical Services has earned accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services (CAAS), one of the highest marks a prehospital EMS service can receive when evaluating its operations and the level of service it provides to patients. Re-accreditation by CAAS is required every three years and consists of a comprehensive self-assessment, application and on-site evaluation by industry experts, who verify compliance in clinical standards, operations and risk management, communications, equipment, facilities, as well as community relations and disaster management coordination. For this inaugural accreditation, Sussex County EMS received a perfect score on the evaluation. In addition to CAAS accreditation, Sussex County EMS has earned numerous awards and accolades over the years, including several wins at the annual Journal of Emergency Medical Services games, and recently received the American Heart Association’s Mission Lifeline Gold Plus award for excellence in STEMI (heart attack) care. Sussex County Emergency Medical Services Sussex County Council President Michael H. Vincent congratulated SCEMS on earning its first-ever accreditation, a testament to the hard work of countless dedicated professionals who have worked tirelessly since Sussex County EMS’ founding in 1990 to provide the highest care possible to the citizens and visitors of southern Delaware. CAAS, based in Glenview, Ill., is an independent commission established in 1990 to set a comprehensive series of standards for the ambulance-service industry. These standards often exceed state or local regulations putting a focus on all aspects of ambulance operations. They are designed to increase operational efficiency and clinical quality while decreasing risk and liability to organizations helping to ensure superior patient care, according to the commission. The accreditation, the first ever for Sussex County EMS, only the second advanced life support (ALS) system in Delaware to earn such a distinction, was awarded in late December 2019. It recognizes that Sussex County EMS meets or exceeds nationally-accepted high standards for patient care in the industry. “Our dedication to ensuring that we fulfill our motto of “Caring People, Quality Service” was the key to achieving accreditation,” Sussex County EMS Director Robert Stuart said. “SCEMS is proud that the Commission recognized our commitment to service excellence.” With more than 20,000 EMS agencies in the United States alone, fewer than 200 agencies in North America currently hold CAAS accreditation. Sussex County EMS is a nationally accredited, County-operated department that augments the local volunteer fire/ambulance service by providing 24-hour-a-day advanced life support care to all of Sussex County with 10 full-time paramedic units, 99 field paramedics, and 17 administrative support staff.
This report was updated at 11:42 a.m. on July 20.The Supreme Court ruled July 8 that employers with religious or moral objections do not have to help provide insurance coverage for contraceptives in the case of The Little Sisters of the Poor v. State of Pennsylvania.This ruling applies to the section of the Affordable Care Act which, as defined under the Obama administration, required businesses to provide free contraceptives under company insurance. The Trump administration first announced it would roll back the birth control mandate in October 2017.University President Fr. John Jenkins praised the Supreme Court for their decision in a statement last week. “Americans of all faiths or none should welcome today’s Supreme Court ruling for upholding religious liberty against government’s interference with the ability to act in accord with religious principles,” he said.When asked for comment, University spokesperson Dennis Brown said it was not immediately clear whether the court’s decision would affect the University’s insurance coverage. “It’s uncertain whether there is an immediate impact on the University,” he said in an email. “It is still being reviewed.”Brown said people who require birth control for medically necessary purposes will still be able to receive contraceptive care under the new ruling. Irish 4 Reproductive Health (I4RH), a nonprofit, independent organization advocating for reproductive health rights at Notre Dame, said the lawsuit did not account for the fact that religious employers serve employees who may not necessarily share their beliefs. Brown did not comment on the status of the lawsuit, saying direct questions should be taken up with I4RH’s lawyers.“Notre Dame’s support of the ruling suggests that the diverse community it vocally celebrates must adhere to its specific set of religious beliefs, thereby diminishing the beliefs of its students, staff, and faculty who may have no qualms over the use of birth control,” the organization said in an email. Currently, “certain forms of IUDs and emergency contraception are not covered at all by University insurance plans,” according to previous Observer reporting. I4RH said the organization wants to see an increased commitment by the University to helping marginalized members of the Notre Dame community, despite the new ruling. “To us, that means making all FDA-approved forms of contraception available without copay to students, staff, and faculty as guaranteed under the ACA,” the email said. “Restricting this right forces religious beliefs on people who may not share them and interferes with medical treatment agreed to between a patient and their medical professional.”In June of 2018, the National Women’s Law Center (NWLC) filed a lawsuit on behalf of I4RH against the University for entering into “an unlawful settlement agreement between the Trump-Pence Administration and Notre Dame to deny students, employees, and their dependents insurance coverage of birth control guaranteed to them by the Affordable Care Act (ACA),” a press release from the NWLC said. The Trump-Pence administration and the University filed to have the suit dismissed. However, in January, I4RH was cleared to move forward with their case. The organization said the lawsuit has not been affected by the Supreme Court’s ruling in this case, and will continue to proceed as planned. “It is important to remember that this ruling is not fully resolved in regards to its constitutionality, nor does it address several of the arguments we are bringing to the court,” the email said. “The Little Sisters v. Pennsylvania ruling did not in any way address the constitutionality of the settlement Notre Dame and the Trump-Pence administration entered into.”I4RH said the lawsuit will not affect their mission to advocate for contraceptive care and reproductive freedom at Notre Dame.“We will continue fighting, in court and out, for access to contraceptive care for people who need it and are unable to access it due to a lack of healthcare on campus,” the email said. “Our current plans are to continue helping the Notre Dame community gain access to sexual health resources and education as safely as possible, as has always been our mission.”Managing Editor Mariah Rush contributed to this report.Tags: birth control, I4RH, Irish 4 Reproductive Health, National Women’s Law Center, Supreme Court

Centrally located on Oahu, on the eastern slope of the Waianae Mountain Range, Schofield Barracks is named in honor of Lt. Gen. John M. Schofield, who, in 1872, recognized the strategic importance of Oahu to the defense of the United States. Construction began on the barracks in 1909.Today, Schofield’s training areas and cantonment area occupies approximately 18,000 acres. Schofield Barracks supports almost 100,000 military personnel, civilians, retired military personnel and their family members. It is home to the 25th Infantry Division.Wheeler Army Airfield was established in 1922. The initial air units stationed at the airfield were photo reconnaissance and fighter squadrons. By 1940, the primary units stationed at Wheeler were fighter squadrons, making it a prime target for the Japanese when they attacked Pearl Harbor in 1941. Wheeler came under the control of the Air Force in 1947 and was returned to the Army in 1991. Wheeler Army Airfield comprises about 1,389 acres of land adjacent to Schofield Barracks, just 20 miles from the state capital of Honolulu. Today, Wheeler Army Airfield is home to the headquarters of U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii.
In order to get to the comfort desired for the bike, OPEN opted for an integrated seat mast approach with a vert skinny 25mm diameter. Thanks to the lack of seat post/seat tube overlap, and the thinner profile that extends all the way to the saddle, OPEN claims this design is much better in terms of comfort.However, you do have to cut it to fit which gives you 15mm of adjustment after the cut. If you adhere to the ‘Measure Once Cut Twice design’ principle, then OPEN offers their MOCT saddle clamp which gives you 15-35mm of adjustment, which may come in handy if you ever want to sell the bike to someone with longer legs. The Ritchey saddle rail clamp includes side plates for standard round and oval carbon rails as well.Giving it what they refer to as ‘New Road Handling,” the MIN.D geometry started as a steel test mule with adjustable dropouts and headtube angles. Sold in four sizes, most use a 72.5° head tube angle and a 73.5° seat tube angle, 71mm BB drop, and a fit that is somewhere between racer and full comfort road.Offered in a single stock Midnight Blue color, the framesets are also available in their popular RTP or Ready To Paint Option – which allows you to create your own custom finish design with a painter of your choice.OPEN frames usually command a premium price, and this one is no different. The frameset is priced at $3,600 and includes the frame and fork, a headset, seat tube top clamp, rail clamp, thru-axles, 2 RD hangers, 2 MultiStops (Di2, eTap), cable exit stop, noise-reduction foam sleeves, bottle cage bolts, and manual. Available for pre-order now, framesets will begin shipping in July 2020.opencycle.com Up front, the new R-Turn fork brings their U-Turn fork design to the pure road segment. OPEN’s Smartmount system allows for the use of 160mm rotors without any adapters, meaning the caliper bolts directly to the fork. That means you can’t run 140mm rotors, but OPEN says you should be running 160mm anyway given the better braking performance with minimal weight penalty. The same system is used for the rear brake mount as well.The full carbon fork uses a tapered steerer with a Cane Creek Integrated IS42/28.6 upper, and OPEN-Custom integrated IS47/38 headset lower headset. With an uncut steerer, the fork has a 335g claimed weight. Running 100 x 12 and 142 x 12 thru Carbon-Ti thru axles at each end, the frame offers clearance for up to 32mm tires on modern, wide rims for added comfort. A BB386EVO pressfit bottom bracket is found, and the frame has provisions for 1x mechanical, 2x mechanical (Shimano only), and Di2, eTap, and EPS drivetrains. When you think of the classic road bike, what do you picture in your mind? With an OPEN MIN.D, you end up with something with classic road bike lines, but modern performance and fitments. Something OPEN refers to as MINimal Design, or MIN.D.OPEN has made their mark on the world of cycling with bikes that can accept large tires and occupy the sort of all road/gravel and true off-road spectrum of bike design, but the company’s founders Andy Kessler & Gerard Vroomen have a deep road cycling background from their time at Cervélo and BMC. While gravel is certainly an exciting new world, they mention that they will always have the road bike bug. So the OPEN MIN.D was sort of the answer to what kind of road bike would they want to ride? It’s hard to beat the classic lines of traditional road bikes, but the final product needed modern pure road performance without sacrificing comfort.The resulting bike offers what they refer to as Minimal Design – a light weight, sleek road frame that offers comfort without resorting to “gimmicks”, with a “restrained appearance, that underneath is all business.” OPEN claims that for medium frame only with paint, uncut seat mast, and without metal parts, you can expect a respectable weight of 870g.
