    Nervous System Architecture: Staff College Graduates and the Formation of Regular, Territorial Force, New Army, and Dominion Divisions, 1914-1916

    The historiography of the First World War lacks an assessment of the role that trained staff officers had during the expansion of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) between 1914 and 1918. This article aims to determine what role staff college graduates played in the early expansion of the BEF. The central conclusion of this article is that staff-trained officers were critical in the expansion of the BEF during the war. They occupied all the key command and staff appointments in the British regular army, the Territorial Force, New Army, and Dominion divisions, both when those formations were formed and when they first went into action. The armies of the empire could neither have expanded nor functioned without them

    Background: The World Health Organization (WHO), American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and the literature supports exclusive breastfeeding for newborns until six months of age and continued breastfeeding until 12 months of age. Postpartum maternal breastfeeding support has been insufficient in the pediatric clinic to support exclusive breastfeeding recommendations. Shared Medical Appointments (SMA) are an alternative approach to individual well-child appointments that provide lactation consultants sufficient time to conduct breastfeeding education during the extended appointment. Objective: Through utilization of a shared medical appointment (SMA), a southern California military pediatric clinic will increase exclusive breastfeeding rates (EBF) of new mothers by 10% at the two-month, four-month, and six-month well-child appointments. Methods: SMA breastfeeding data was collected longitudinally at the infant’s two-, four-, and six-month visits. Random sample of 129 mothers not participating in the SMA completed a breastfeeding survey at well-child visits. A multidisciplinary team of a Provider (MD or NP), Registered Nurse, Lactation Consultant, and two Medical Assistants (MA) conducted two weekly 45-minute SMA for the two-week well- child appointment for up to ten two-week infants total. Results: During the five-month project, 95 two-week infants participated in the SMA. Mothers who attended the SMA had higher EBF rates vs. individual two-week well-child appointments at the two-, four-, and six-month visits. Maternal satisfaction scores and free text comments showed immense satisfaction of the SMA. Conclusions: Through utilization of a shared medical appointment (SMA), a southern California military pediatric clinic increased exclusive breastfeeding rates of new mothers

    After Recess: Historical Practice, Textual Ambiguity, and Constitutional Adverse Possession

    Get PDF
    The Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Recess Appointments Clause in NLRB v. Noel Canning stands as one of the Supreme Court’s most significant endorsements of the relevance of “historical gloss” to the interpretation of the separation of powers. This Article uses the decision as a vehicle for examining the relationship between interpretive methodology and historical practice, and between historical practice and textual ambiguity. As the Article explains, Noel Canning exemplifies how the constitutional text, perceptions about clarity or ambiguity, and “extra-textual” considerations such as historical practice operate interactively rather than as separate elements of interpretation. The decision also provides a useful entry point into critically analyzing the concept of constitutional “liquidation,” which the majority in Noel Canning seemed to conflate with historical gloss but which seems more consistent with the approach to historical practice reflected in Justice Scalia’s concurrence in the judgment. Finally, this Article argues that the historical gloss approach, when applied cautiously and with sensitivity to the potential concerns raised by Justice Scalia and others, is not vulnerable to the charge of licensing executive aggrandizement by “adverse possession.

    Drafting the Nineteen Propositions, January to July 1642

    This article analyses the drafting of the document eventually printed as the Nineteen Propositions. Section two addresses certain issues regarding the methods and concepts employed in the subsequent analysis, focusing on consensus-building, constitutional leanings and the drafting of parliamentary declarations in early 1642. Section three examines the origins of the Nineteen Propositions in the draft Declaration of Ways and Means (January 1642) (hereafter cited as the Ways). Section four traces the emergence of the Declaration Concerning Grievances and Remedies (hereafter cited as the Grievances) from the Ways (January–February). Section five examines the junta's efforts to overcome the Lords' prevarication over passing the Grievances (February–May). Section six examines the emergence of the initial draft of the Nineteen Propositions from the Grievances (24–7 May). Section seven analyses the 28 May draft, while section eight explores the amendment of that draft (31 May and 1 June). Section nine examines parliament's abortive attempts to revise the Nineteen Propositions in light of His Majesty's Answer to the XIX Propositions (21 June–2 July). It is concluded that, contrary to the received view, the text of the Nineteen Propositions began to emerge in January rather than May 1642, and that the junta in the Commons rather than the Lords drove this process. The three appendices identify, respectively, the constitutional leanings of the relevant parliamentarians, the parts of the text of the Ways that were repeated in the Grievances, and dates on which the various parts of the final text of the Nineteen Propositions were written
