May 23, 2018 /Sports News – National NFL mandates that players on the field stand for national anthem Written by FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailDrew Angerer/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell announced Wednesday that the football league’s players who are on the field will need to stand for the national anthem — capping months of controversy and coming in the wake of a series of player protests.“The policy adopted today was approved in concert with the NFL’s ongoing commitment to local communities and our country — one that is extraordinary in its scope, resources, and alignment with our players,” Goodell said in a statement. “We are dedicated to continuing our collaboration with players to advance the goals of justice and fairness in all corners of our society.”Goodell said “it was unfortunate” that on-field protests by players taking a knee during the national anthem “created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic. This is not and was never the case.”This is a breaking story. Please check back in for updates.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio. All rights reserved. Beau Lund

The seminar also focused on air power and the growing need for aerospace technology and capacity.“As Sailors we are well aware of the role played by major trading routes that crisscross our seas and oceans,” said Harris. “And throughout this region we face the man-made scourge of transnational criminal organizations engaged in all manner of lucrative illicit activities, trafficking in drugs, weapons, money, and people.”U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F) supports USSOUTHCOM 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]Naval Today Staff, July 17, 2012 Training & Education View post tag: News by topic View post tag: seminar U.S. 4th Fleet Attends Military Power Seminar at Colombian War College View post tag: College Share this article
View post tag: Carter Back to overview,Home naval-today MV SSG Edward A. Carter Jr. to Continue Supporting US Army’s PM3 September 27, 2013 Maersk Line, Ltd. has received a modification to a previously awarded contract to exercise a one-year option period for the time charter of a self-sustaining ship, MV SSG Edward A. Carter Jr., to support the U.S. Army’s ammunition prepositioning program.As envisaged by the contract, worth USD 12.1 million, work will be performed at sea worldwide.MV SSG Edward A. Carter Jr. with a length of 950 ft and a beam of 106 ft, features a displacement of 74,500 tons and can develop a speed of 18 knots.The U.S. Army’s ammunition prepositioning program underlies strategic placement of military equipment and supplies aboard ships located in key ocean areas to ensure rapid availability. Military Sealif Command’s (MSC) 27 prepositioning ships support the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Defense Logistics Agency.Many of MSC’s prepositioning ships are able to discharge liquid, containerized or motorized cargo both pier side or while anchored offshore by using floating hoses and shallow-draft watercraft, called lighterage, that are carried aboard. This allows cargo to be ferried to shore in areas where ports are non-existent or in poor condition and gives the US military forces the ability to operate in both developed and undeveloped areas of the world.Prepositioning ships include a combination of U.S. government-owned ships, chartered U.S. – flagged ships and ships activated from the Maritime Administration’s Ready Reserve Force. All prepositioning ships are operated by U.S. civilian mariners who work for ship operating companies under contract to the federal government.The aforementioned charter extension of MV SSG Edward A. Carter Jr. is valid until September 2014.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, September 27, 2013; Image: MSC Share this article View post tag: US View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Support View post tag: A.

Scottish co-operative Scotmid plans to more than double the number of bakery counters in its stores this year, working in partnership with local bakeries. The retailer, which has around 350 outlets, has already set up 40 bakery counters in conjunction with local independent bakers and plans to add another 50 by April 2014. Scotmid chief executive John Brodie said he was keen to add bakeries to all 190 of its food stores in the longer term.Six award-winning Scottish bakeries are working with Scotmid on the project, including Stephens the Bakers, J G Ross, Aulds, Goodfellow & Steven, Stuart’s of Buckhaven and The Breadwinner.“The partners we have chosen have a really strong quality bakery offer and it allows them a route-to-market they might not otherwise have given their scale,” Brodie told The Herald newspaper. “It also gives us a real point of difference in-store.”Scotmid has rolled out its new Premium Fresh store format, which includes an extended range of fresh produce and locally sourced products. The new concept store has been launched in 10 locations in Edinburgh, Fife, Glasgow and Aberdeenshire, with more to follow. It follows a successful trial in Warrender Park, Edinburgh.A trial of a new ‘community value’ format store has also commenced, with a pilot store in Prestonpans, Edinburgh, which stocks new product ranges from local and Scottish suppliers, more £1 products and a larger range of value products.“The main focus of the business is to develop and create ‘points of difference’ in our stores taking the best of the Co-operative Retail Trading Group and then using our local skills and knowledge to tailor our stores to get the best for our customers in the communities we serve,” said the retailer in its interim report for the year ending 25 January, 2014.The Scotmid group made an operating profit of £2m in the 26 weeks ended 27 July, 2013, down £0.1m on the same period last year. Turnover fell from £211.1m to £209.8m.
The IT Manager challengeYou are an IT Manager. Perhaps, you manage hundreds of servers and dozens of modular infrastructure systems. You want to deploy infrastructure devices the moment you receive them, keep firmware and drivers updated, monitor them regularly for uptime and efficiency, and retire them securely.Sounds difficult? Not if you have the right tools!Dell EMC steps inFortunately, the Dell EMC OpenManage portfolio provides you with all the tools you need to do this efficiently and securely. Whether you prefer to manage your infrastructure devices 1:1, through a console, or simply through your current tools (VMware, Microsoft or Ansible consoles), Dell EMC offers you multiple options that make it simple to manage your IT infrastructure through their entire lifecycle.But how do I manage my IT if I am always on the road?Managing your IT infrastructure when you are in the data center is all fine and good – but what if you are away from the data center and a device needs your attention? OpenManage Mobile to the rescue – you can monitor and manage your infrastructure devices from a mobile iOS or Android device anytime, anywhere. You can also receive proactive notifications and take appropriate action as needed.Can you make it even simpler?When you are in the data center, OpenManage Mobile can communicate directly with a PowerEdge server or an MX chassis with Quick Sync 2, an optional Bluetooth module embedded in the server or MX chassis.It is simple to use. Run the OpenManage Mobile app on your mobile device and tap the Quick Sync button on the hardware to connect with the app via Bluetooth. You can now access information about your server or MX from the app. You can browse the screens to view inventory, health status, or even do the basic configuration. You want to change the IP address – sure! You want to change the password or key BIOS settings – no problem!With an MX7000 chassis, OMM utilizes Augmented Reality to make monitoring even simpler. Simply view the chassis through the camera in OMM app. You will see the chassis image with health overlays on top of individual components. See how the technology works in this video: In summary, you can follow these three easy steps to monitor your modular infrastructure systems using your mobile device. In the OpenManage Mobile app with Quick Sync activated, focus your camera on an MX chassis.Step 1: Identifies the MX chassisStep 2: Puts health overlays on top of every component on the MX imageStep 3: You can click on any health overlay and get more details.But how does all this work?OpenManage Mobile uses Augmented Reality (AR) to provide an overview of health updates by looking at the MX chassis through the mobile device camera.How does OpenManage Mobile use AR Technology?By calculating the plane of the chassis’ front face and identifying key shapes that make up important components, such as the fan or power button, OpenManage Mobile creates a 3D boundary of where the chassis exists in the real world and overlays a blueprint of all the chassis parts and components on top of the boundary.How does Quick Sync feed into AR?In order to draw meaningful data onto the detected chassis, OpenManage Mobile reads details about the chassis health status from the Quick Sync 2 module on the chassis. Quick Sync 2 utilizes Bluetooth Low Energy to wirelessly host its health and component data, allowing OpenManage Mobile to connect and read the server. All Quick Sync 2 communications are encrypted with a secure handshake like what is available in HTTPS connections. If OpenManage Mobile has connected to the chassis at least once before working with augmented reality, the broadcast address and chassis certificate will quickly and automatically match and validate the Quick Sync 2 connection.What else can OpenManage Mobile do for you?A lot.Get Push Notifications – proactively – from OpenManage Enterprise consoleReceive alert notifications from OpenManage Enterprise on your mobile deviceAcknowledge, forward and delete alerts from your mobile deviceMonitor and Manage PowerEdge servers or MX chassisBrowse server details, health status, firmware inventory, system event logs, and LC logs of individual servers. Share/Forward as needed.Use your tablet as a crash cart to access the system consoleAccess and share SupportAssist reports, or crash screens and videosAccess server warranty informationAccess system console through VNC to view server OS desktops with iDRAC VNC enabled servers. (This requires 3rd Party VNC client app available for Android and iOS devices.)Perform server management functions such as Power On, Power cycle, Reboot, or ShutdownConfigure and Provision PowerEdge servers and MX modular infrastructureConfigure one server manually, or multiple servers simultaneously. You can even update the Auto-Update flag in the server from OpenManage Mobile.

BEIJING (AP) — China National Nuclear Corporation says its first nuclear power unit that uses Hualong One, a third-generation nuclear reactor, has started commercial operations. The reactor, located in the city of Fuqing in China’s southeastern Fujian province, is designed to have a 60-year lifespan, with its core equipment domestically produced. Each unit of the Hualong No. 1 has a capacity of 1.161 million kilowatts and can meet the annual domestic electricity demand of 1 million people in moderately developed countries. The commercial use of Hualong One will also reduce carbon emissions and help achieve China’s low-carbon goals such as carbon neutrality before 2060.
