Eric Cantor, along with representatives from Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Texas, South Dakota, Illinois, Hawaii and California, briefly toured the Nimitz-class aircraft carrier to receive a general orientation of the ship and its operations and meet with Sailors from their respective states.“It’s always one of the most gratifying experiences to come abroad and visit with Sailors,” said Cantor. “These young, bright Sailors are determined to stand up for America, and if it were not for our men and women in uniform, we couldn’t enjoy the kinds of freedom that we do at home.”Upon arrival, the Congressmen were welcomed by Sailors from their respective states standing by in the ship’s hangar bay awaiting a chance to talk with their representatives. “It’s a nice change of pace to meet someone who plays a vital role in military legislature back in the United States,” said Aviation Structural Mechanic Airman Kelsey Robbins. “It means a lot to see them the take time out of their schedule to visit us on our ship and show support for what we do.”After speaking with the Sailors, the distinguished visitors toured the hangar bay, flight deck and navigation bridge before departing the ship.George Washington and its embarked air wing, Carrier Air Wing 5, provide a combat-ready force that protects and defends the collective maritime interest of the U.S. and its allies and partners in the Indo-Asia-Pacific region.[mappress]Press Release, April 24, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: USS View post tag: Visit View post tag: Washington View post tag: paylast_img read more

Hoboken City Council approves settlement agreement with Vape Van owner

first_img ×SETTLED — Hoboken settled the “Vape Van” issue. HOBOKEN — On Wednesday, May 17 the Hoboken City Council approved a settlement agreement with Joseph Ruggiero, owner of 9th Cloud Vape Van.The settlement states that Ruggiero will attend a minimum of 10 anger management / diversity training courses and will not operate his business before May 31, when his courses will be completed.Ruggiero and his business entered the spotlight recently after a video of Ruggiero went viral in which he is seen shouting at two individuals to “go home to your country” and calling them “Immis” (short for immigrants. )Officials condemned Ruggiero’s actions as hate speech and called for the council to revoke the vendor’s license to operate within city limits.The city also alleged that the Van owners had a history of parking violations.The settlement was approved in a 7-2 vote with councilman David Mello and council president Jen Giattino in dissent.Ruggiero’s attorney, James Lisa, said, “The reality is Mr Ruggiero voluntarily agreed to this… he wants the time to focus on his training…”Members of the council and public commented on the settlement.Councilman Michael DeFusco said “What I have an issue with beyond the fact that this gentleman’s speech was frightening, racist, and disturbing to say the least … but I hope this isn’t selective enforcement…because this is an election year.”The mayoral election is this November. Mayor Dawn Zimmer is up for re-election, and DeFusco may run against her.Councilman Ravi Bhalla, who is also up for reelection this year and is allied with Zimmer, said he finds this “reprehensible and patently offensive to accuse me of politicizing this issue.. you don’t know my track record…”Speaking of arguments, when Ruggiero was asked how he felt about the council’s vote, he said “No comment.”The video of him sparked debate on the internet. Many were angry at his epithets. But when the city threatened to revoke his license, some said it was a free speech issue.For more information pick up this weekend’s edition if the Hoboken Reporter or come to hudsonreporter.com starting Sunday.

Virtual Lab to Test Critical Microelectronics in Military Weapons

first_imgBy Dialogo December 30, 2014 To ensure performance of integrated circuits in military systems, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), working in concert with its Service partners, developed a “virtual lab” with an integrated computer-aided design, or CAD, and file-sharing environment to transfer the large volumes of data accumulated during microchip analysis and debugging. In addition to file sharing, a website constructed for the virtual lab is facilitating communication between government researchers and program performers from academia and industry. “Integrated circuits or microchips form the backbone of all military IT and electronics systems, and ensuring that these microchips are free from unauthorized tampering is essential to national security. Unfortunately, this task has become increasingly difficult as more microchips are designed and built around the world in commercial facilities,” said Kerry Bernstein, DARPA program manager. “Improving chip intrusion detection and assessment speed across the investigative community will help prevent the installation of counterfeit chips in military systems and enhance overall confidence in the electronics supply chain.” Integrated circuits or microchips are ubiquitous, found in virtually all modern appliances and systems ranging from desktop computers, laptops and cell phones to fighter aircraft and munitions. Despite that pervasiveness and criticality, few automated techniques today can verify whether the intended functionality of microchips has been compromised at any stage during design and fabrication. “Integrated circuits or microchips form the backbone of all military IT and electronics systems, and ensuring that these microchips are free from unauthorized tampering is essential to national security.

These tools are applied to test articles distributed by DARPA to its performers, who stress the chips under loads likely to be seen during normal operating conditions. Under the auspices of DARPA’s Integrity and Reliability of Integrated Circuits program, researchers from the Naval Surface Warfare Center (NSWC) and Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) are collaborating in powerful new ways to determine the reliability and integrity of microchips embedded in some of the nation’s most critical military weapon and cyber systems.

In a recent investigation conducted by NSWC Crane, AFRL Wright-Patterson and University of Southern California’s Information Sciences Institute, researchers devised a proprietary, non-destructive technique to analyze and repair microchips exhibiting erratic behavior.

Attention goal setters: How to have an extraordinary fourth quarter

first_imgFourth quarter? What happened? We blinked. That’s it.  Summer’s in the wind, and autumn is in already heading into full swing.  Calendars are changing. Plans are being made. And eyes are on the end of the year prize. Did you do what you wanted to do?  Did you reach milestones? Or do you still have miles to go? It’s about that time.  Leaders are in full scale acceleration mode to pull out the stops and screech into the new year with kudos all around.  I’ve got you covered to help make it AH-Mazing – with a side order of fun.  First, do yourself and your team a favor:  Watch this (old) interview with the fabulous News at Sunrise Anchor Eve Tannery where we shared strategies on her show. It’s on the money. Second – take a few minutes to watch my video on the 10 ways you can make the most of the remainder of the year. Monday Makeover:  Give yourself a 15-minute head start on this week’s activities, so your I’s are dotted and T’s are crossed and you’re absolutely ready for anything.  Meetings?  Totally cool.  Performance reviews? You’ve got this. Appointments?  Locked and focused.  Deadlines and deliverables?  You’re a master.  Next take a glance at the month ahead and prioritize your pipeline.  Might it take more than 15 minutes? Maybe. Once this is a habit?  You’ll breeze through with ease. Money talks:  Here’s to conquering the Achilles’s heel of many business professionals. Watch those targets and keep them in your sites to remind yourself weekly of the last quarter results that are your responsibility. Mine are printed above my desk and on my phone for daily accountability!   Gaps & Goals:  Now’s the perfect time to rock a gap analysis of where you are vs. where your GOALS said you’d be at this time.  Deep dive to see and understand what’s necessary to bridge that gap if your member experience goals, productivity, prospecting or sales aren’t where you want or need them to be.  THAT will become the foundation of your plan of action for the next three months. Hustle & Grit.  Ever hear that saying, “No grit—no pearl?”  Now’s the time to hunker in and fire up your internal urgency to close deals, follow up on proposals, add value to members and make hit the phones and connect with your member base.  Watch goals daily, weekly and monthly and monitor them like your Credit Union depends on it.  Because it does. Less is MORE.  Meetings are necessary, check! But time? Is of the absolute essence. So pare down. Make sure they are time-efficient team meetings that are NO longer than 20-40 minutes, tops, with agendas and clear objectives.  Meeting not vital to this quarter? Ditch it.  Your team will thank you! Allow them to be hyper focused on deliverables, not meetings. Face Time.  Not on the iPhone…but real life one on one time so that every team member is clear of your support and you have a chance to investigate the resources, training, coaching or guidance they might need to finish their year strong. Schedule your 1:1 with your leader to update them on your team’s progress and proactively share good news. Make it a DAY.  Just as you put the trash out twice a week, there’s something to be said for allocating specific tasks to specific days when so that nothing gets missed.  Think Marketing Monday, Telephone Tuesday (outbound calls to existing members), Write It Up Wednesday (proposals), Team Development Thursday etc. Group activities to accelerate productivity. Hindsight Helps:  Take a look at your typical day’s timeline – only in reverse. Sometimes by working backwards we can see where we can adjust our schedules a little more effectively.  You know what they say – “Begin with the end in mind.”   Social Hours:  Let’s be honest – it’s holiday time. With that comes parties, invites and open houses.  Believe it or not? They are JUST as vital to your career and certainly life balance as all the “real work” that has to be done before we ring in the New Year. Make time to connect with people you care about at work and at home. Keep everyone on the team in the loop for business engagements, sit down with the family and figure out the plan for as well.  Then map it all out so wires don’t get crossed and everyone breathes a little easier knowing who is going where.  Oh – and don’t forget to break the mold every now and then and be spontaneous. ‘Tis the season friends to lighten up a little, spread some cheer and even switch gears here and there.  Who knows?  You might find yourself onto something new! DEFINITIVE FOCUS: Careful. It’s easy be distracted by holiday parties, end of the year crunch time, and school pageants.  While finding the balance can be more mayhem than merry at the end of the year, keep your wits about you. Get up early, prioritize things closest to your member experience goals and make sure you create a laser beam focus to get them checked off the list.  If ever there is a season for time-blocking, it’s the fourth quarter!  Set the timer on your phone, use software to block distracting websites (we use Freedom and love it) and make this your best end-of-year yet! Put these power-packed strategies in place and finish your year like the rock star you know you can be! Hey fourth quarter?  We’re coming for you! Get READY!  SET.  GO! 16SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Neen James Think force of nature. Boundless energy. Timely topics. Laugh out loud fun.

Nat’l Museum may cancel Igbaras ‘treasure hunt’ permit

first_imgILOILO – The National Museum of the Philippines confirmed havingissued a “Treasure Hunting and Disposition of Recovered Treasures Permit” covering a private lot inBarangay Pasong, Igbaras, Iloilo. * PH shall submit quarterly report on the progress of treasurehunting activities as per Technical Work and Environmental Work Programs * archaeological sites * PH is liable for damages incurred during the operations Before his Philippine assignment,Yamashita and his men were said to have plundered other Southeast Asiancountries that Japan attacked and/or invaded during the war and buried the lootin the Philippines./PN The terms and conditions were the following: “We have rules. The permit may be cancelled if the excavation hasadverse environmental impacts and endangers neighboring areas. It is within thepowers of the museum to suspend or revoke the permit when public interest sorequires or upon the failure of the permit holder to comply with the terms andconditions,” said Tirol. * protected areas – the permit applicant must first secure aclearance from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources Yamashita was assigned to defend the Japan-colonizedPhilippines from the advancing Allied forces in the waning years of World War2. He failed to stop the Allied advance, and Japan ultimately surrendered inAugust 1945. * PH (permit holder) shall not destroy any building or structure According to the mayor, around 10diggers have so far covered 1,000 square meters. * PH shall notify the agency within 24 hours of their discovery * cave sites within 500 meters from the mouth of the cave,archaeological and/or declared historical zones, and anthropologicalreservations From what he had gathered, saidEsmeralda, a certain Noly Laquihon Bayogos claimed to have secured a “TreasureHunting and Disposition of Recovered Treasures Permit” from the NationalMuseum. Tirol also pointed out guidelines covering public lots, protectedareas and private lots as treasure hunting sites: The ongoing excavation in Barangay Pasong alarmed residents. Theyfeared possible adverse effects such as landslide, soil erosion and the earthcaving in. According to Tirol, treasure hunting is not allowed in thefollowing: * shipwreck sites * Permit is valid for one year As far as the municipal government ofIgbaras and barangay council of Pasong were concerned, said Esmeralda, theyhave not issued any permit for treasure hunting, ground excavation or mining inthe village. For his part, Barangay CaptainCornelio Elumba of Pasong dismissed speculations there could be Yamashitatreasures buried in his village. “I learned that the excavation has been going on for about one andhalf years already beginning in 2018 before I was elected mayor. Residents fearthis could result to soil erosion. Nine nearby households are very concerned,”said Igbaras’ Mayor Jaime Esmeralda. “I already asked the chief of the National Museum’s CulturalProperties Regulation Division to evaluate if kinahanglan i-cancel angpermit. I-cancel ina kun damo violations,” said Tirol. It may cancel the permit if the conditions for its issuance werenot met, said Atty. Ma.  Cecilia Tirol,acting deputy director-general for administration of the National Museum. * Withdrawal by the Permit Holder from the Permit Area shall notrelease him from all financial, environmental, legal and other obligations Tirol stressed the importance of local government unitscoordinating with the National Museum if they have concerns over treasurehunting activities which the agency had issued permits. * public lots – the permit applicant must first secure a clearancefrom the local government * Must abide with laws, rules and regulations on treasure hunting * Permit Area subject to inspection * private lot – clearance from local government unit not neededbut applicant must seek the consent of private lot owner “Kontuod nga may ara, kontani damo nga mal-am ang mahambal sina,” he said. * THP (treasure hunting permit) is exclusive to the Permit Holder(non-transferrable) Led by Igbaras’ Mayor Jaime Esmeralda, barangay officials ofPasong sought the help of Gov.

New Sectional Assignments

Are you aware that the sectional assignments for basketball and football have changed?  For the next two years, the basketball sectional involving Batesville boys and girls has added Connersville to the list and dropped Madison making this an all EIAC sectional.In football, Franklin County drops down to 3A and replaces Salem in the sectional involving Batesville.  This one will still be a wide-ranging sectional because the southern half of this sectional drops down to the Ohio River.With the changes involving Connersville and Franklin County, their old sectionals will obviously have changes.  Both Connersville and Franklin County are continually losing enrollment while Batesville continues to increase.  Look for more changes in two years. read more
