Guided-Missile Frigates Conduct Exercises with Chilean Ships and Sub

first_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: conduct View post tag: Naval June 24, 2011 Guided-missile frigates USS Boone (FFG 28) and USS Thach (FFG 43) participated in a series of exercises with the Chilean navy submarine CNS Carrera (SS 22), and Chilean navy ships CNS Condell (FF 06) and CNS Blanco (FF 15), June 22. During the three-day passing exercise (PASSEX), ships from both navies trained with each other in a series of anti-submarine warfare (ASW) and surface warfare (SUW) exercises to promote communications, interoperability and partnership.The exercises included unit-level training in submarine familiarization, passive and active tracking, coordinated tracking exercises and coordinated tactical exercises.“Our intentions were to gain knowledge on operations during the ASW exercise and gain experience to improve our operations,” said Chilean navy Lt. Rodrigo Daneck. “At the same time, we wish to improve our relations between the U.S. and Chile.”As the exercise progressed, the focus shifted from single unit operations to a coordinated effort between the ships involved. The progression of the exercise allowed partners to enhance communication training in a dynamic, real-time environment.“The participants worked together as a surface action unit (SAU) to practice a variety of ASW tactics and techniques,” said Lt. Jason Lautar, Boone’s operations officer. “Each day built upon the experience of the day before.”U.S. and Chilean ships participated in a Sailor exchange. Each day during the exercise, eight different officers from participating ships spent time aboard a partner navy vessel. The exchange sailors stood watch on the bridge and in the combat information center (CIC), and toured the ship.“My favorite part was working in the CIC and experiencing how a foreign navy works,” said Chilean navy Lt. Christian Seron, Condell gunnery officer. “We were able to share the experience with sailors of another navy and realize we have a very similar way of life. It’s important because we want to improve our organization and procedures when working with other countries.”The exercise was part of a six-week partnership with the Chilean navy culminating June 24 through July 8, in the Pacific phase of UNITAS. The ASW exercise and UNITAS are engagements within the Southern Seas 2011 deployment.U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command/U.S. FOURTH Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F) supports U.S. Southern Command joint and combined full-spectrum military operations by providing principally sea-based, forward presence to ensure freedom of maneuver in the maritime domain, to foster and sustain cooperative relationships with international partners and to fully exploit the sea as maneuver space in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.[mappress]Source: navy, June 24, 2011; View post tag: Chilean View post tag: ships View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Frigatescenter_img View post tag: Guided-missile Guided-Missile Frigates Conduct Exercises with Chilean Ships and Sub View post tag: sub View post tag: Exercises Back to overview,Home naval-today Guided-Missile Frigates Conduct Exercises with Chilean Ships and Sub Training & Education Share this articlelast_img read more

US Navy decommissions USS Albuquerque

first_img After 33 years of service with the U.S. Navy, Los Angeles-class fast-attack submarine USS Albuquerque (SSN 706) was decommissioned during a ceremony held at Keyport Undersea Museum on February 27.Albuquerque arrived at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard (PSNS) for inactivation and decommissioning Oct. 28, 2015, following an inactivation ceremony in San Diego, California.The submarine is the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for Albuquerque, New Mexico. The keel was laid by the Electric Boat Division of General Dynamics in Groton, Connecticut, December 27, 1979, and launched March 13, 1982. The boat earned three Navy Unit Commendations, four Meritorious Unit Commendations and four Battle Efficiency “E” Awards throughout her service.Rear Adm. John Tammen, commander, Submarine Group 9, the guest speaker for the event, delivered remarks highlighting the boat’s many accomplishments.“Albuquerque was commissioned on May 21, 1983 at Naval Base New London in Groton, Connecticut,” said Tammen. “She has deployed 21 times to every corner of the globe, accumulating approximately 1.1 million nautical miles steamed, the equivalent of 52 global circumnavigations. “She has performed 1075 successful dives in her lifetime, made port calls in over 35 different foreign ports around the world, participated in over 18 major international naval exercises, and seen 14 commanding officers. Having been homeported on both coasts, she is one of the few warships in history to have deployed to every ocean in support of every operational command worldwide.”“As we decommission the aging Los Angeles-class boats, we make room for newer, more advanced submarines,” said Tammen. “We strive to continue the tradition of undersea dominance, a tradition the Albuquerque has for so long been a part of, by continuing to push the envelope, and equipping our Sailors with the very best technology and equipment. As we close this chapter on the USS Albuquerque, we look forward to the opportunities in the future and the progress it signifies.” View post tag: US Navy Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today US Navy decommissions Los Angeles-class submarine USS Albuquerque View post tag: Los Angeles-class February 28, 2017 US Navy decommissions Los Angeles-class submarine USS Albuquerque View post tag: USS Albuquerque Authoritieslast_img read more

Will Torrent discusses the perfect afternoon tea

first_imgTo celebrate the launch of the book, Torrent created two limited-edition patisserie treats with The Tea Room at Harrods. He also recently gave a tutorial on YouTube in which he demonstrated two sandwich recipes from the book and showed some key tips bakers can use to give their own wares a classy twist:1: Flavour your butter.For his smoked salmon sandwich, Torrent added lemon to his butter for a fresh kick. Meanwhile, to his cucumber sandwich butter he added Yuzu, a Japanese citrus fruit he described as a cross between a lemon, a grapefruit and a lime, which lends the sandwiches an earthy flavour.2: Pickle your cucumber.If you are bored by the taste of regular cucumber, Torrent advises lightly pickling wafer thin slices in cider vinegar. He warns against leaving the cucumber in the vinegar for too long, however, and over-pickling it.3: Presentation is everything.To get a professional, afternoon tea-style finish, Torrent says the crusts must be removed from the sandwiches before they are sliced into elegant fingers. Celebrated pastry chef Will Torrent recently launched his third recipe book, Afternoon Tea at Home, and British Baker went along to find out more.The book features 80 recipes covering everything from classics such as vanilla shortbread to more adventurous offerings including friands made with matcha tea, a powdered green tea from China and Japan. Published by Ryland Peters & Small for an RRP of £19.99, it follows Torrent’s previous titles Patisserie at Home and Chocolate at Home.British Baker caught up with Torrent at the launch event at St George’s Church, Holborn, London to talk about the book and what inspires him.last_img read more

No changes to bakeries ‘this year’, says Tesco

first_imgThere are to be “no significant changes” to Tesco’s in-store bakeries this year, the retailer has said.The statement follows newspaper reports that claimed Tesco would be switching from using fresh dough in its in-store bakeries to frozen dough – a move that one industry expert said could have an impact on the number of staff and amount of equipment required.However, Tesco has now clarified that changes are not on the cards at this time. “Contrary to media reports over the weekend, we do not plan to make any significant changes to bakeries this year,” it said in a statement.“Media speculation over the weekend was premature and we have accelerated our communications to colleagues in order to reduce the significant uncertainty created by incorrect information.”However, the retailer did confirm that its fresh foods operation would be impacted as part of a major overhaul, which will see nearly 9,000 jobs affected.“Overall, we estimate that up to 9,000 Tesco colleague roles could be impacted. However, our expectation is that up to half of these colleagues could be redeployed to other customer-facing roles,” Tesco added.This shake-up will include changes to the fresh foods counters in its larger stores, as well as changing the way stock is managed to produce a “significantly reduced workload”.“Not only are customers shopping in different ways, but we know that they have less time available to shop too – which means they are using our counters less frequently. We will be making changes to the counters in our large stores to ensure we have the right offer for customers. We expect that around 90 stores will close their counters, with the remaining 700 trading with either a full or flexible counter offer for our customers,” Tesco said.last_img read more

The differences between strategies and tactics

first_imgStrategic planning sessions are critical to your financial institution’s success. But all too often what starts as time devoted to examining big picture issues turns into a discussion about the minutia. This is the classic challenge of going from 30,000-foot issues to 5,000 (or lower) foot issues. For example, rather than discussing your five year branching strategy you start talking about the colors in the lobby.The bottom line is there is a difference between strategies and tactics. While they are both important you need to make sure that when you are “doing strategy” you do strategy. Keep the following differences in mind when it comes to strategy and tactics:Strategy is long-term, tactics are temporaryStrategy focuses you, tactics distract youStrategy stays, tactics changeStrategy inspires, tactics overwhelmStrategy sets direction, tactics veerStrategy gives vision, tactics give headachesStrategies are big, tactics are smallYou can even use the above list as a tool in your planning session. For example, give this of simple bullet points to everyone ahead of time. Or even have it displayed on 3×5 cards at people’s seats. But use it as a visual reminder.The above list may give the impression that tactics are not important. That is not the case at all. The point is that it’s all too easy for strategic sessions just to become glorified tactical discussions. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

India’s coronavirus heroes come under attack

first_imgThis week, doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences appealed to the government for help after health workers were forced out of their homes by panicked landlords and housing societies.”Many doctors are stranded on the roads with all their luggage, nowhere to go, across the country,” the letter said.Modi called on Indians to stop treating medical workers as pariahs, describing those fighting the virus were “god-like”.”Today they are the people who are saving us from dying, putting their lives in danger.” Sanjibani Panigrahi, a doctor in the western city of Surat, described how she was accosted as she returned home from a long day at a hospital that is treating COVID-19 patients.She said neighbors blocked her at the entrance to her apartment building and threatened “consequences” if she continued to work.”These are the same people who have happily interacted with me [in the past]. Whenever they’ve faced a problem, I’ve helped them out,” the 36-year-old told AFP.”There is a sense of fear among people. I do understand. But it’s like I suddenly became an untouchable.” Fake news and paranoia Health workers are not the only ones facing the brunt of the frightened population in an environment where misinformation and rumors are thriving.Airline and airport staff, who are still being called on for evacuations of Indians stuck overseas and management of key cargo deliveries, have also been threatened.Airline and airport staff, who are still being called on for evacuations of Indians stuck overseas and manage key cargo deliveries, have also been threatened.Indigo and Air India have condemned threats made against their staff.An Air India flight attendant told AFP her neighbors threatened to evict her from her apartment while she was heading to the United States, saying she would “infect everyone”.”I couldn’t sleep that night,” she said, afraid to reveal her name over fear of further stigmatization.”I was scared that even if I did go home, would someone break open the door or call people to kick me out?”Her husband had to ask the police for help.Others have not been as lucky, the flight attendant said, with one colleague — who declined to speak to AFP — forced out of her home and now living with her parents.”With all the fake news and WhatsApp forwards, they don’t know what is going on, so there’s this paranoia that makes them behave like this,” she said.T. Praveen Keerthi, general secretary of the Indian Commercial Pilots Association (IPCA), told AFP they had received more than 50 complaints from airline crew.”Airline staffers are being stopped from entering their own residential premises by security guards,” he said.”We also have families and children that we leave at home to help fellow citizens… The least we expect is for our colleagues to not be harassed and ostracized.”Airport workers involved in moving essential supplies have also faced attacks as have delivery workers transporting medicines and groceries.E-commerce giant Flipkart temporarily suspended services this week.The Walmart-owned group said it only resumed home deliveries after police guaranteed “the safe and smooth passage of our supply chain and delivery executives”. Topics : They have been hailed as India’s coronavirus “heroes”, but doctors, nurses, delivery drivers and other frontline workers have been attacked and in some cases evicted from their homes by panicked residents.Some e-commerce giants have even halted deliveries partly due to the harassment of staff, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi said abuse of hospital workers had become a “huge issue”.Reports of attacks and abuse have come from across India, increasing with the imposition this week of a 21-day nationwide lockdown. In at least one case, police were accused of beating a delivery driver carrying medicines.last_img read more
