View post tag: US Navy The crews of the Los Angeles-class fast attack submarine USS Greeneville (SSN 772) and the submarine tender USS Emory S. Land (AS 39) completed a series of bilateral engagements this week with Malaysian officials during a visit to the region.Both Greeneville and Emory S. Land submarine maintenance subject matter experts hosted a meeting with Royal Malaysian Navy counterparts on best practices. The visit was also aimed at building friendship and goodwill between the US Navy and the people of Malaysia.“The US and Malaysia relationship is rooted in longstanding and strong people-to-people ties, shared democratic values and commercial relations,” said Capt. Michael D. Luckett, Land’s commanding officer. “We will continue to work together to address common international and regional challenges.”“This is an important opportunity to promote stability and security in the Indo-Pacific region, demonstrate commitment to regional partners and foster growing relationships,” said Cmdr. Terry A. Nemec, Greeneville’s commanding officer. “We are grateful to Malaysian authorities for their hospitality and enjoyed the visit.”Emory S. Land is one of two forward-deployed submarine tenders and is on a scheduled deployment in the U.S. 7th Fleet area of operations to conduct maintenance and support of deployed U.S. naval force submarines and surface vessels in the Indo-Pacific region.Greeneville measures more than 360 feet long and weighs more than 6,900 tons when submerged. It was christened Sept. 17, 1994 and commissioned on Feb. 16, 1996 at Naval Station Norfolk. The Greeneville arrived at its current homeport of Pearl Harbor, Hawaii in March 1997.

Check OCNJ Daily for updates and photos of the progress of work of the Ocean City beach replenishment project for 2015 in the south end of Ocean City between 36th and 59th Streets.DATE: Thursday, April 23PROGRESS: The beach where the project started — 42nd Street — is now open, though temporary fencing keeps pedestrians away from where the feeder pipeline makes landfall. The project is reportedly picking up pace as the hopper dredge is moving to a different part of the borrow area to pick up a finer-grained sand. The work now extends to 39th Street with the beach closed between there and 41st Street. Work can be viewed from the top of the beach at all blocks.WHAT’S NEXT: The project will proceed northward to 36th Street. It appears as if two blocks of beach will be closed at any time as work migrates north. The Liberty Island, a “hopper dredge,” is shuttling back and forth between an area more than 2 miles off the coast of Strathmere (where it’s pumping sand from the ocean floor into its hold) to an area just off 42nd Street in Ocean City (where it’s pumping sand onto the beach through a feeder pipeline). After work is complete to 36th Street, the next phase of the project will be from 42nd Street south to 49th Street.READ MORE: Ocean City NJ Beach Replenishment 2015 Daily UpdateFOR DAILY UPDATES by E-MAIL: Sign up for free The pipeline and work area extend toward 39th Street in this view from 40th Street.
Marks & SPENCER’s efforts to develop a ‘caring’ image helped it triumph at this year’s Sammies – the annual British Sandwich Industry Awards. The retailer took four of the 14 awards and won both the Sandwich Retail Multiple and New Sandwich of the Year categories for the second year. M&S sandwich buyer George Hebditch said using cardboard to pack its sandwiches had added value and shown shoppers that it was environmentally responsible, while an initiative to donate money to Shelter on sandwich packs over Christmas had proved popular.M&S also increased its premium lines and answered calls for more variety with its Limited Edition sub-brand, which introduced new sandwiches every few months. One of these – New York Deli Pastrami, with pastrami, Gruyere, Emmenthal, sauerkraut and pickled gherkins on rye and carraway seed bread – won the New Sandwich of the Year award.Said Hebditch: “Fillings don’t need to be weird and wonderful – it’s about taking a modern twist on a classic or exploring new flavours and trends.” He added that M&S had widened the appeal of some old favourites, such as Prawn Mayonnaise, by reducing the calories.Variety was also key for Baker Sandwich Maker award winner Coughlans, which introduces a new sandwich each week to maintain interest. “It’s worked because we have the confidence to try new fillings, such as buffalo mozarella, pine nuts, basil, avocado, spinach and plum tomatoes. And we aren’t afraid to take popular products off the shevles,” said MD Sean Coughlan. “Customers want quality and consistency.”He added that its new Munch store format had made a big impact: “It’s a much more modern concept. We’ve tried to break down the stuffy barriers.”Phillip Brown, founder of Philpott’s sandwich bar chain, won the British Sandwich Industry Award for his contribution to the industry, while his business walked off with the Specialist Sandwich Bar Chain of the Year Award for the sixth time in 11 years. Brown said: “We have worked on giving our customers a ‘tangible hug’ when they come into our shops. We give them charm, choice and opulence, but they can also order on-line which is an important part of what we do.”While established names took a number of the awards, several newer sandwich operations were also recognised, including Café Mana in London, which took the Independent Sandwich Bar category. Mark Arnold at Brambles Foods won Overall British Sandwich Designer. Organic firm ‘Fresh! Naturally’ won the Workplace Sandwich Supplier of the Year award.
Speaking at an event last week to mark flour and ingredients supplier Bowman’s 150th anniversary, David Lang, analyst and consultant for Investec, suggested that we may be at the beginning of a sea change that could transform the UK flour industry beyond recognition.Eventually, milling could become an almost entirely free-market industry, with negligible quoted company involvement, he said. And he put the long-term ownership of three major players in milling – Rank Hovis, Allied and ADM – in question. The “juicy cashflow” available with food companies is virtually irresistible to private equity (PE), and it is likely to be the top bidder for food industries.”It might sound a bit far-fetched, but PE has injected an extra, urgent industry dimension,” he said. We are in the middle of a takeover boom, with PE offering a massive acquisitions war chest. Some analysts reckon that all publicly traded companies are up for grabs. Now there’s speculation that Premier is thinking of hiving off Rank Hovis’ free flour trade and the likely winner of any auction would almost certainly be PE.”Such a deal would mirror Allied Mills’ 2002 sale to ADM and forms a much broader pattern of milling industry change. Premier is focused on high-margin brands, while flour only delivers around 5-6% margin against a backdrop of falling bread volumes. In 2006, Allied Mills re-entered the market with mills in Tilbury and Manchester (it had kept Neills of Belfast). Meanwhile, Allied Bakeries was heading for another loss this year, he said, while owner ABF is prioritising retailer Primark. “There have to be strong questions over how long they are going to stick around in milling and my guess is not forever,” said Lang. He also questioned whether flour would survive indefinitely under ADM, saying “the company’s direction may be elsewhere”.”This could fuel further growth of a vibrant independent milling sector. If Warburtons succeeds in marginalising Kingsmill and halting Hovis, the scene is going to be set for further independent miller growth and rationalisation by the majors.”nervousnessAlso at the event, Alastair Dickie, director of crop marketing at the Home Grown Cereals Authority, acknowledged nervousness in the food industry over the impact of demand for biofuels on raw material prices, but anticipated a 20% rise in world supply of grain over the next four to five years.”You will get more grain in the world because the price is up,” he said. “This demand event, which is linked to biofuel, is probably going to sustain the base price slightly higher and that is going to give a comfort zone to the agricultural sector. There are tracts of Russia, which haven’t grown anything for 10 years, that are going under the plough this autumn. So we will get more grain by 2009.” n
Green Acres isn’t the place for everyone, especially Edward Glaeser.Glaeser, who was born and raised in New York City, is an advocate of the metropolis, and he upends the myths that cities are unhealthy, poor, crime ridden, and environmentally unfriendly in his new book “Triumph of the City.”The Fred and Eleanor Glimp Professor of Economics and director of Harvard’s Rappaport Institute for Greater Boston began thinking about cities when he was just a child. “I found it impossible not to be fascinated by the urban world around me,” he recalled.“In those days — the bleak 1970s — New York’s future seemed far from assured. It has been a great joy to watch that city, and other great cities like Boston, come back.”Glaeser said humans are a social species, and cities are a natural fit for them despite being highly unnatural.“Cities are thriving despite new technologies that make it effortless to telecommute from any far-flung spot, because those technologies and globalization have increased the returns to being smart, and we are a social species that gets smart by being around other smart people,” he said. “Cities succeed today by connecting people and enabling them to learn from one another. My 19 years at Harvard have only strengthened my belief that the most complex ideas are best transmitted face to face.”Glaeser also believes that people should stop idolizing home ownership and romanticizing rural villages.“I believe in choice, but I also think we should stop subsidizing home ownership,” he said. “People should be free to choose suburban homes, but the federal government shouldn’t be bribing people to leave urban areas. The home mortgage interest deduction does not create a level playing field. It pushes people out of urban apartments into suburban homes.”In research that estimated carbon emissions associated with living in different parts of the country, Glaeser discovered that it’s actually greener to live in the city.“I find that cities have significantly lower carbon emissions than suburbs because of less driving and smaller housing units, even holding household size and income constant,” he said. “I’m an economist, and that perspective leads me to put great value in human freedom. Plenty of people don’t want to live in urban areas, and that’s perfectly fine with me, as long as people are paying for the social costs of their actions, including any environmental costs.”“We are a destructive species, and the best thing we can do for nature is to stay away from it.”City living is more popular than it has been in the past, said Glaeser, in part because cities have become more pleasant over time.“Cities are great places to play, as well as work. And an increasingly educated and affluent population seems to value the higher-end entertainment that is disproportionately available in cities,” he said.But is he biased about cities because he hails from the ultimate one?“Of course.”
Elements of HCI Fabric proposal through Fabric Design CenterThat’s all it takes to join the HCI revolution. We make it easy, and we’re always here to help along the way if you have questions—just use the feedback button at the bottom right corner of the Fabric Design Center.Check out Fabric Design Center right now at fdc.emc.com. In a world that is increasingly software-defined, hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) is a fast mover. Analysts expect adoption to accelerate at a 42% CAGR from 2016 to 2023, reaching $17B. Done right, it’s an IT dream because it makes deploying private cloud services much easier, faster and more reliable. But if you don’t get the most overlooked part right – the network design – it quickly becomes a nightmare.According to IDC, “While considerable emphasis was placed on the compute and storage capabilities of HCI systems, less attention – and sometimes none at all – was accorded to integrated networking for HCI.”We gave it serious attention. Too many customers spend too much time and effort researching, specifying, designing, validating and revising designs to best fit their solution. Many are new to HCI and have to devote even more time to understanding the network requirements and mapping those to the switch and OS capabilities. This can take weeks.To solve these challenges and take weeks down to mere minutes, we developed Fabric Design Center (FDC). It is an easy-to-use web-based tool with four simple steps that automate the HCI network design process.Four-step process to design the HCI fabric within minutesDesign and customize HCI fabrics with confidenceIn an HCI solution, it’s critical that the network design meets the performance objectives and is sized appropriately, with the ability to scale as needed.Allow me to describe the four easy steps that allow you to design an HCI fabric in minutes, instead of weeks:Select a network design template from the Fabric Design Center libraryInput networking parameters specific to your environmentReceive and review the recommend design from Fabric Design Center wizard tool (inclusive of installation recommendations; network topology; wiring diagrams; ordering bill-of-materials)Input specific network addressing (IP address, VLAN assignments) to receive production-ready configuration files and away you go
The 2010 Open Doors Report, released by the Institute of International Education (IIE), ranked Saint Mary’s College No. 15 among all baccalaureate colleges in the nation for 2008-2009 academic year study abroad programs, according to a press release. “Before 2002, Saint Mary’s College had only seven study abroad programs and all but one were in Europe,” Elaine Meyer-Lee, director for the Center for Women’s Intercultural Studies (CWIL), said in a press release. “CWIL has expanded study abroad offerings, creating 17 new programs. The portfolio of programs is varied enough to meet individual students’ needs, including geographical location, time frame, disciplinary focus, pedagogical model and specific learning outcomes.” Recently, the College launched a new program in South Korea, which started with senior and student body president Rachael Chesley. Chesley also spent a semester studying in Rome. “Taking the independence and confidence I developed in Rome, I was able to travel abroad and learn more about the Korean culture,” Chesley said. She said she had some apprehensions about going to South Korea, but liked the flexibility of the program. “Before heading to South Korea, I was nervous about being the first and only student to experience this new program with Saint Mary’s,” Chesley said. “There was not a great deal of information given about the program, and I was not sure about the language barrier, where I was living or what my life would be like there. However, I trusted my gut, branched out, met new people and had an excellent experience.” According to Chesley, going abroad is a crucial experience not only in education, but also in life. “There is a quote by St. Augustine that says, ‘The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.’ I believe this,” Chesley said. “I always grew up doing road trips with my family, so I realized that the world was a big place with lots of different people and so many diverse things.” Through her time in Rome and South Korea, Chesley said she realized the importance of experiencing different parts of the world. “Overall, the world is becoming a more global society each and every day,” Chesley said. “Studying abroad offered me the opportunity to develop my intercultural competence, communication skills and independence.” Chesley is not the only student who has had multiple experiences with Saint Mary’s study abroad programs. Senior Chelsea Crane spent a year in Ireland, a summer in Nicaragua and two weeks traveling in Ecuador. “I heard somewhere that when you go someplace where no one knows you, you become more yourself than ever,” Crane said. “Now that I’ve experienced traveling and living abroad, I know that to be true and it’s an experience I think every woman, American, human should have.” Crane said she picked Ireland because she felt she would be able to assimilate there due to the similarities between the U.S. and Ireland. “One of the reasons I decided on Ireland was because they speak English — it would be an easier transition and I was able to make close friends more easily,” Crane said. However, Crane said she enjoyed traveling to more exotic places because it gave her an appreciation for the everyday amenities of American life. “In Nicaragua, I learned to really appreciate things I didn’t realize I should,” Crane said. “For example, having to throw toilet paper into a basket instead of down the loo made me really appreciate the commonality of working toilets in America.” Traveling in unfamiliar territory can be intimidating, but Crane said it also offers moment that can’t be found anywhere else. “Hiking around the same islands where the very notion of evolution was born was the experience of a lifetime and I’ll be lucky if I get to experience something like that again,” Crane said. For both Chesley and Crane, going abroad was a part of their college career they won’t forget. “Studying abroad has allowed me the distinct opportunity to learn more about myself, my interests, my passions and the world around me,” Chesley said.
Students and faculty gathered outside Main Building Friday afternoon to celebrate Notre Dame’s decision to admit undocumented students. The University announced this decision in August. The event, titled “NDream Immigration Celebration,” was sponsored by student government, the Student Coalition for Immigration Advocacy, the Progressive Student Alliance, the Center for Social Concerns and the Institute for Latino Studies. In a speech given at the celebration, student body president Alex Coccia said he supported the administration’s move to include undocumented students in future Notre Dame classes. “We’re proud of our university for making this decision,” Coccia said. “Our primary purpose is making sure [undocumented students] feel extremely welcome.” Notre Dame’s decision is also relevant in the larger sphere of federal politics, Coccia said. “This is a critical moment for us nationally, and we urge Congress to pass national immigration reform,” he said. Juan Rangel, student body chief of staff and chairman of the Immigration Task Force, a sub-division of student government, said he believes this decision will benefit the campus community overall. “I hope that this gathering of students shows that we are ready to welcome undocumented students to campus,” he said. “They contribute their histories, cultures and traditions with us throughout the United States. It’s one of the many benefits that we as Americans receive from our immigrant communities.” Fr. Dan Groody, associate professor of theology and director of the Center for Latino Spirituality and Culture at Notre Dame’s Institute for Latino Studies, read a statement from University President Fr. John Jenkins regarding the new policy. In the statement, Jenkins called for a “just and effective immigration reform” within the United States that would allow “deserving, academically qualified young men and women who are brought to the United States as children to have access to higher education in the United States and opportunities following from educational achievement.” Senior Stephen Zerfas said he supports the new policy because it reflects Notre Dame’s role as a religious institution. “I’m excited that the University has been able to take a stance more in line with our Catholic tradition,” he said. To conclude the event, Dara Marquez, a junior from Saint Mary’s College, read a poem that highlighted the experience of undocumented immigrants in the United States. As an undocumented student herself, Marquez said the policy change is influential. “It’s able to provide more aid for those students that are wanting to come that are undocumented,” she said. “That’s empowering.” Contact Sarah McCarthy at [email protected]
