Jon Kreitz, New York’s commanding officer. “It started with the folks in combat, coordinating closely with the bridge team, and we would not have found the person without the lookouts doing what they do so well. The end result is, we probably saved his life.”New York and embarked Marines of the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit are part of the Iwo Jima Amphibious Ready Group. The ship is currently on her maiden deployment in support of maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, June 27, 2012; Image: US Navy View post tag: Stranded View post tag: rescues View post tag: Jet View post tag: Kuwaiti June 27, 2012 View post tag: Navy View post tag: New Amphibious Transport Dock Ship USS New York Rescues Stranded Kuwaiti Jet Skier View post tag: Dock View post tag: Amphibious View post tag: Skier View post tag: Naval View post tag: Transport Back to overview,Home naval-today Amphibious Transport Dock Ship USS New York Rescues Stranded Kuwaiti Jet Skier View post tag: News by topic View post tag: shiplast_img read more

Salcombe bakery sees rates rocket

first_imgBusiness rates for one Devon bakery have more than doubled, rising from £9,000 a year to £21,000.Along with other small firms in Salcombe, the Upper Crust Bakery will now have to fork out more, following a review by the Valuation Office.Ben Holt-Wilson, who runs the bakery, said an appeal against the increase had been rejected. “It came as a bit of a shock, but I’m going to have to swallow it. Along with commodity rises and utility bills, it’s just another thing to deal with.” He added: “The bakery has been here for hundreds of years – there is a shop with bakery at the back. But with these ratings people cannot understand why we’re not on an industrial estate.” The seasonal business loses money for seven months of the year and depends on tourists in the high season, said Holt-Wilson. “We’re now the only bakery in the town centre – three bakeries in a 10-mile radius have closed in the last few months,” he added.A spokeswoman from the Valuation Office said it aimed to ensure the business rates system was fair and up to date, ensuring that it reflected changes in the market.She said: “The Valuation Office Agency has worked closely with ratepayers in Plymouth during the revaluation programme, through ratepayers forums and representative bodies such as the Federation of Small Businesses and the Devon & Cornwall Business Council, and will continue to work with them.”last_img read more

After cancellation of Asheville Marathon and Half, runners make the best of it

first_imgJust a week before the Asheville Marathon and Half at Biltmore Estate was scheduled to take place, more than 2,500 runners received the news that the event was canceled due to COVID-19. “To say we were disappointed we had to cancel is an understatement,” race representatives said in a press release. “With runners coming from nearly all 50 states, we knew our participants had made many personal sacrifices and trained on average 4-6 months for these endurance events.”  Race Director Daphne Kirkwood also got in on the action, running her first half marathon after being diagnosed with lymphoma nearly two years ago. “I ran in solidarity today with all the virtual runners participating in the Asheville Marathon,” Kirkwood said. “Today I celebrate with all of you, we are in this together. Running will help us through this tough time we are all in. Keep running. Keep hope. Keep believing. Keep loving.” Photo from Getty Images “The trails at Biltmore may have been more inviting but what the heck, adaptability is the key,” said Bruce Nelson of Arkansas, who participated in the virtual race.  “I had fun exploring all the New York tourist spots I usually avoid,” said Shirley Mei, who ran her race in New York City. Mei also used her run as a chance to fundraise for cancer research with Team in Training. “The miles are meaningful, but the funds raised mean even more,” she said.  Determined to make the most of it anyway, the marathon decided to go virtual. Four hundred and fifteen runners joined the online event, running their full or half marathons on their own at home. “We received photos from an almost empty New York City, snowy trails from Arkansas, and chalk-covered sidewalks from children who cheered on their mom’s and dad’s,” race representatives said. last_img read more

Cooperation Between SOUTHCOM and Partner Nations Spurred Response to Haiti Earthquake

first_img“In fact my wife and three children were killed in the earthquake,” the police chief told Lt. Gen. Keen. Programs like the one at the IADC, the current class of which includes 63 military and security scholars from 14 nations, provide armed forces officials from different countries with opportunities to learn together and build relationships. “I believe what success we enjoyed in Haiti, at the tactical level and some at the operational level, was really because of venues like this, because of relationships that are developed in classrooms like this,” Lt. Gen. Keen said. Speaking to IADC students and guests, Lt. Gen. Peixoto said the rules for military personnel operating on a relief mission in a foreign country are very clear and based on international accords. However, the urgency of the situation called for flexibility to speed up the flow of relief efforts to Haitian quake survivors. “Although there was an agreement signed by the United States ambassador and the head of the mission, we didn’t think about that too much,” Lt. Gen. Peixoto said. “The partnership we established was structured on our long-time friendship.” Managing the arrival of large quantities of relief supplies and workers, and matching it with the flood of requests for assistance, was a major challenge. “There was no coordination in the first two weeks, and we Military [personnel] were so upset.” Military coordination of relief activities Military coordination of relief activities “I believe what success we enjoyed in Haiti, at the tactical level and some at the operational level, was really because of venues like this, because of relationships that are developed in classrooms like this,” Lt. Gen. Keen said. Military friendships facilitate swift humanitarian response Natural disasters affect an entire population, including members of the very security forces who are needed for the recovery effort. In response to the terrible losses Haiti suffered in a matter of minutes, the International Community and representatives from 55 countries participating in the United Nations peace keeping mission’s police and military components quickly mobilized to provide aid and prevent additional loss of life. But he noted Haiti’s various security forces still face an uphill climb to organize internally and conduct joint training exercises needed to prove the nation’s operational readiness. “It takes leadership to step forward,” Lt. Gen. Keen said. “In Haiti it wasn’t about getting credit for anything that was being done, it was about how we work together to make a difference.” The international response to the earthquake in Haiti was the subject of the Complex Emergencies and Large Scale Disasters seminar held from January 27-29 at the Inter-American Defense College at Fort McNair in Washington, D.C. Managing the arrival of large quantities of relief supplies and workers, and matching it with the flood of requests for assistance, was a major challenge. In response to the terrible losses Haiti suffered in a matter of minutes, the International Community and representatives from 55 countries participating in the United Nations peace keeping mission’s police and military components quickly mobilized to provide aid and prevent additional loss of life. SOUTHCOM established U.S. Joint Task Force-Haiti (JTF-Haiti) to spearhead Operation Unified Response in response to the humanitarian crisis and leveraged from existing relationships already built in Haiti to be successful. “Our personal relationships really affected how we were able to quickly work together in Haiti,” said retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General Ken Keen, who headed the JTF-Haiti, was deputy commander of SOUTHCOM, and was in Haiti during the earthquake. “We were able to acknowledge in this case that what we were trying to do was save lives and mitigate suffering among the Haitian people.” He relied extensively on his friendship with the then Force Commander of the United Nations Stabilization Mission in Haiti (MINUSTAH), retired Brazilian Army Lieutenant General Floriano Peixoto, with whom he had participated in years of cooperative military exchanges between Brazil and the United States. Both Lt. Gen. Keen and Lt. Gen. Peixoto recalled the international response in Haiti during the seminar, where they led a panel on the response effort. The importance of friendship among Military officials Haitian police forces played a key role responding to the earthquake by helping international Military personnel assess the situation, Lt. Gen. Keen said. “We have groups everywhere to train people,” Justin said. “With foreign partners, we need that SOUTHCOM help in terms of practice and exercise.” To bring order to the chaos, Lt. Gen. Peixoto and his staff developed a central hub to channel all relief activities, which included staff from each major partner agency. The structure was called the Joint Operations Tasking Center and became a model that U.N. officials sought to replicate for other major responses in other parts of the world. As the head of U.S. forces under JTF-Haiti, Lt. Gen. Keen faced his own challenges in balancing responsibilities to two different civilian authorities – the U.S. ambassador in Haiti, and the head of the nation’s chief relief agency, the U.S. Agency for International Development. Lt. Gen. Peixoto is a special consultant for the UN in its High Level Independent Panel on Peace Operations and Special Political Missions. We want the newspaper the way it was before. Not like it is today I support them helping Anti to fix the houses damaged by the earthquake Crime doesn’t pay. It’s very sad to see families destroyed because of crime. Congratulations, a very good way to show how our Armed Forces perform to benefit the community and the development of the population all over Latin America. I would like to have this information always.

Gen. Peixoto said. Both Military officers recognized that, while their orders often came from civilian authorities above them, the needs and requests of the Haitian people came first.

Slavonski Brod starts the realization of the project “House of stools – Slavonian music fairy tale”

first_imgThe City of Slavonski Brod is starting the realization of the 27,4 million kuna project “House of the Tambourine – Slavonian Music Fairy Tale”, which will be co-financed with 23,3 million kuna from EU funds, writes the portal Sbplus.hr.The City of Slavonski Brod submitted to the Brod-Posavina Administrative Department for Communal Economy and Environmental Protection a request for a preliminary acceptability assessment procedure for the ecological network for the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the northwestern cavalier of the Brod Fortress. In addition to the reconstruction, rehabilitation and arrangement of the north-western cavalier, the reconstruction of the reconstructed space into the “House of the tambourine – Slavonian musical fairy tale – the house of our notes” will be done.”The building in question is located in the center of the fortress complex of the Brod Fortress in Slavonski Brod. The building of the complex has a massive horseshoe-shaped structure. The purpose of the project is to reconstruct the northwestern cavalier, rehabilitate and restore it, and return it to its original dimensions. After the reconstruction, the space will be given new content and converted into the Tamburitza House – Slavonian music fairy tale.. ”, It is written in the submitted request.By the way, in Slavonski Brod, the Tamburitza Museum operates as unique not only in Croatia but also in the world. But unfortunately in inappropriate conditions, which require as urgent changes as possible in order to be turned into a unique tourist experience for all visitors.The project, worth 30 million kuna, envisages that in a space of about two and a half thousand square meters, in addition to the museum exhibition, there will be a multimedia center, a master workshop and a souvenir shop. Part of the allocated space will consist of a multipurpose hall, archive and documentation center and administrative and storage spaces. By transforming a part of the Fortress into an Interactive Creative Center dedicated to traditional tamburitza music and a traditional musical instrument, the space would be protected from further deterioration, and then – gradually – connected to the urban and cultural fabric of the city. Later programs should turn it into a real tourist attraction and a first-class tourist experience for visitors from both Croatia and abroad.Source: Sbplus.hrlast_img read more
