Dan Cohen AUTHOR Officials at Brooke Army Medical Center are concerned about the prospect that one or more San Antonio-area hospitals will develop a new trauma center, a move likely to cut into patient loads at Brooke’s emergency room and hamper its medical training mission. Brooke, located on Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston, serves as a training hub for combat physicians. Its emergency room logs 80,000 visits a year — 80 percent of them civilians, reports the San Antonio Express-News. Last week, Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Johnson, Brooke’s commanding general, told the San Antonio City Council that plans by two local hospitals to build trauma centers would threaten medical readiness and the quality of care at Brooke.“I think how I would describe the risk is our ability, as the [DOD’s] only Level I trauma center, it is the jewel for where trauma training can take place,” Johnson said. “There is no other place in the DOD that can do it. So, if we were to lose the ability to train trauma, and sustain medical skills inside of trauma, our providers, our health professionals, would no longer be able to, on Day One, be able to meet our nation’s needs in a deployed setting.”A top executive with University Health System, which operates the only other Level 1 trauma center in San Antonio, echoed Johnson’s concerns. “We should not underestimate this warning,” Dr. Bryan Alsip, University’s executive vice president and chief medical officer, told the council. “If our community cannot provide the commitment necessary to defend BAMC’s ability to maintain their mission readiness, our nation’s leaders will not hesitate to find another location that will be happy to welcome our military medical infrastructure.”On Thursday, Mayor Ron Nirenberg and other council members expressed concern that the threat to trauma care at Brooke could jeopardize the medical training mission in San Antonio in a future BRAC round. They said they opposed expansion of trauma facilities by other hospitals, and the council approved a resolution supporting Brooke’s mission.

Another attraction which would add to the joy is a musical fountain installed by CESC at Maidan opposite Victoria Memorial. The 150-channel musical fountain has been refurbished and a new programme of music will enthrall the citizens of Kolkata, which has already acquired a special position as one of the most well-illuminated Indian cities. The fountain becomes functional from 5 pm to 9 pm from Christmas Eve. Governor Keshari Nath Tripathi has conveyed his heartiest greetings to the people of Bengal. He wishes that this joyous occasion provides an opportunity to reaffirm our faith in the country’s cultural heritage, spirit of friendship and fraternity among all sections of society. “May the ideals of peace, amity and sacrifice prevail,” the Governor said.
Darjeeling: The Model Code of Conduct eclipsed the celebration of Tagore’s birth anniversary at Mongpu in Darjeeling district this year, as the bard’s 158th birth anniversary was observed on a low key.Though the ministers were not present, the participation of the local community was overwhelming. Even the commemorations had the local flavour that Tagore had adored. Mongpu, situated 33 km from Darjeeling town, was a favourite destination of the bard. He visited the place in 1938 on May 21 and stayed till June. In 1939, he stayed there from May 14 till June 17 to return again on September 12 to stay till the first week of November.

This was his last visit as he fell ill and had to return to Kolkata. Tagore had written several memorable works during his stay at the hill retreat, including Chelebela, Nobojatok, Sesh Kotha, Bangla Bhashar Porichoy, Mongpu, Giribas, Sanai, Akash Prodip and Jonmodin. In Mongpu, Tagore used to stay in the house of Manmohan Sen (Husband of Maitreyi Devi), who was the chief chemist of the cinchona plantation. In 1944, this house was converted into a ‘Rabindra Smrity Bhavan.’ Later in 2009, the building was renovated and converted into a ‘Rabindra Museum.’ Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe museum displays artifacts used by Tagore including pastels as well as homeopathy medicines. Manuscripts and paintings are also on display. Officials of the district administration garlanded the statue of the bard located on the premises of the museum. People from all walks of life also paid respects to Tagore on his birth anniversary. Owing to the ongoing elections and the Model Code of Conduct being in effect, the celebrations were toned down this time, stated officials of the district administration. Local artistes of the Bhutia Development Board and Gurung Development Board presented local dances like Singhi dance (lion dance by the Bhutia community).
