View post tag: Navy The commander of U.S. Fleet Forces visited USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) Aug. 13, to tour the ship and visit with Sailors about TR’s progress in its multi-year refueling complex overhaul (RCOH) in Newport News, Va.During his visit, Adm. John C. Harvey, Jr. toured the ship’s flight deck, hangar bay, medical spaces, aft galley and chief’s mess.Capt. William J. Hart, TR’s commanding officer, greeted Harvey and led him on a tour of the aircraft carrier with TR’s Command Master Chief (SW/AW) Jack Callison. Their first stop was TR’s flight deck, where Harvey inspected the aircraft carrier’s catapult launch system and spoke with Dan Klemencic, a civilian construction director at Newport News Shipbuilding. “They’re doing everything they can to get us back up and running,” Klemencic said to the admiral about the Sailors and shipyard workers on the flight deck.After visiting the flight deck, Harvey descended through the ship’s hangar bay and toured the Medical department. “For our Sailors, it really lets them know that ‘big Navy’ cares about what’s going on, how we’re doing, how we’re progressing,” said Lt. Cmdr. Charlene Oligher, the ship’s nurse. “He was concerned with what each person’s job was and what they were doing. The questions gave a sense that he was asking personally about the Sailor.”Harvey then visited TR’s aft galley, where he spoke with Sailors. “It was very nice meeting the admiral, someone that high in the Navy,” said Culinary Specialist Seaman Recruit Kash Michaels, one of the galley workers Harvey spoke with. “Since this is just my first command, I feel great.”Next, Harvey moved on to the newly renovated Chiefs Mess, where he spoke to senior enlisted about TR moving out of the shipyards and back into open waters.“The Chiefs Mess is the soul and backbone of the ship,” Harvey said. “I’m honored to be down here with you while you go through this process.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, August 15, 2012 August 15, 2012 Commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Visits USS Theodore Roosevelt View post tag: fleet View post tag: Naval Back to overview,Home naval-today Commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Visits USS Theodore Roosevelt View post tag: forces View post tag: U.S. View post tag: Roosevelt View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Commander View post tag: Theodore View post tag: USS Authorities View post tag: visits Share this article
UK’s Royal Navy is likely to join Japan and U.S. in their South China Sea patrols following a trilateral agreement which the three sides signed in the Pentagon on October 20.The three chiefs of navy agreed to deeper cooperation in exercises and an increase in combined patrols.Specific activities would be worked out in follow-on discussions, it was said.The chiefs met for the first time for such an event to address an “increase in maritime traffic worldwide and current events”.The result of a half-day session was the signing of an agreement affirming their commitment to increased collaboration and cooperation.“As Chiefs of three highly capable and like-minded Services, we share a common vision of enhancing the operational effectiveness of our maritime forces through increased cooperation. “Based on shared national interests and a collective assessment of the future security environment, we recognize this opportunity to strengthen maritime contributions for achieving mutually desired strategic effects,” part of the statement read.The U.S., Japan and U.K. navies have regularly operated together off East Africa, around Europe and in the Western Pacific. This is now likely to be broadened to include Asian waters.Japanese Defense Minister Tomomi Inada already said in September this year that Japan would increase its South China Sea activities through joint patrols with the U.S. Navy.

The return of the adult lunchbox and escalating raw material costs could hit high street bakers like Greggs for as long as the consumer downturn continues, analysts at Oriel Securities have warned.Analysts Jonathan Pritchard, Eithne O’Leary and Ben Hunt said that Greggs’ interim results on 9 August would show a fall in earnings and they feared the underlying picture was getting worse.They cited research published in British Baker sister publication The Grocer that showed adult lunchbox consumption was up 3% year-on-year overall and up 5.6% among 17- to 34-year-olds.“The average constituents of a lunchbox cost £1.40. In our view, while the £1.99 meal deal at Greggs is attractive, it not only must be squeezing internal gross margins, it is at risk of being undercut by those choosing to make their own lunches,” the analysts said in a note on the company, entitled Can they stand the heat?The analysts acknowledged there would be those who “trade down” to Greggs, but their view was that if people were willing to trade down from Asda to deep-discounters Lidl or Aldi, then many would surely also be willing to cut their own sandwiches to save 50p a day.They cited recent warnings from Cranswick and CSM about higher raw material costs. CSM, the world’s largest supplier of bakery products, reported “some loss of volume as the market adjusted to higher prices”. Cranswick suggested raw material costs increased during the second quarter – an important statement bearing in mind about a third of Greggs’ sales are in the savoury market, according to Oriel.However, Pritchard told British Baker Greggs had done well by moving into the breakfast and coffee markets. He said the market was cyclical and, if there was a consumer upturn, the lunchbox trend would be reversed.A spokeswoman for Greggs said the company did not comment on anything analysts wrote.

The Florida Bar Standing Committee on Relations with CPAs will present a continuing education seminar May 28 in Miami titled Counseling Clients Regarding Privacy: A Guide for Attorneys and Accountants.“Advances in technology and geopolitical events have spurred legislation aimed at protecting an individual’s fundamental right to privacy,” said Eduardo R. Arista, and attorney CPA who is chairing the program. “This legislation is of particular importance to any business that comes into contact with personal health information or financial data.”Arista said attorneys and accountants with clients in the health care and financial services industries must be aware of the specific requirements created by these laws and understand how to help their clients come into compliance.“The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Financial Modernization Act and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, for example, are currently the most significant pieces of federal legislation to come into effect in the financial services and health care industries,” Arista said. “Since proper compliance requires coordination of legal and accounting issues, the seminar is structured for members of both professions and is intended to further the committee’s mission.”Seminar attendees will learn how to minimize the risk of enforcement action and litigation for their clients.In addition, a speaker from the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants Privacy Task Force and two industry-specific panels including attorneys, CPAs, and technology consultants will focus on building an effective privacy team.The privacy seminar is co-sponsored by the Florida Institute of Certified Public Accountants, the Florida Association of Attorney-CPAs, and Northern Trust Bank.For more information contact Arista at (305) 854-4219 or [email protected] to lead PBCTLA The Sarasota Chapter of the Florida Association For Women Lawyers recently elected its new officers and board of directors.The officers include Alyssa M.

Activities range from speaking engagements at local schools to mock trial competitions to naturalization ceremonies.This year’s national theme is “Celebrate Your Freedom: Independent Courts Protect Our Liberties.”“Independent courts are vital to our democracy,” said Vene M. Hamilton, chair of the Bar’s Voluntary Bar Liaison Committee and statewide Law Week chair. “A fundamental principle of lawyering is ensuring that all persons receive equal and fair treatment. Law Week gives us an opportunity to share with our communities our commitment to the rule of law and our commitment to a fair and impartial system of justice.”Some groups plan activities and celebrations throughout the week. During April 27- May 3, numerous educational and community functions and public ceremonies will take place, marking the 45th annual nationwide observance of Law Day.In 1961, May 1 was designated by joint resolution of Congress as the official day to celebrate Law Day. In 1998, the Florida Legislature established the annual commemoration as an official day and designated week. All Floridians are encouraged to commemorate the role of law and equal treatment of all people during Law Week.The American Bar Association web site ( http://www.abanet.org/publiced/lawday) provides a wealth of information and resources related to Law Week.

A second gunman then struck the woman on the back of the head with the shotgun, causing a contusion.Another man in the house was not injured. The victims refused medical attention.The trio fled in a silver or champagne-colored Humvee southbound on Rose Avenue.The case comes three days after a man was tied up in a Hempstead home invasion and as the 12th Suffolk armed home invasion in a six-week span was reported last week.First Squad detectives ask anyone with information regarding this crime to contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.

1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr continue reading » Almost out of nowhere, talk of recession has spread across the financial media. Blame it on the market getting off to its worst start ever this year, as the S&P 500 dropped 8% in the first two weeks of trading.Investors are rattled by slowing economic growth in China and falling oil prices, and many analysts now seem to think there’s a chance of a recession hitting the U.S. In a December report, Citigroup said there was a 65% chance of the U.S. plunging into recession this year, saying the bond yield curve could invert.The call was so severe, that Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen specifically rejected it in a hearing on Capitol Hill; but even she allowed a 10% chance of recession back in December, and a recent survey of economists indicated an 18% chance. While there’s always the possibility of a recession, there are a number of signs that the U.S. economy is stronger than it’s been in a long time, which would indicate little danger of the economy slipping into negative growth.1. Job growthThe U.S. economy added 2.65 million jobs last year, the second-highest total since 1999. The unemployment rate has now fallen to 5%, less than half of what it was at the height of the financial crisis, and a level that most economists consider to be full employment. Wage growth has also finally picked up, rising 2.5% in December from the year before.
He said he was saddened that despite all their hard work, many workers faced hostility due to their close proximity to COVID-19 patients.”Some nurses have been kicked out of their rooming houses and nurses’ children are alienated by the neighbors due to the negative stigma surrounding COVID-19,” he said.Nevertheless, he thanked those in the public who have played their part to help slow the spread of the outbreak”We, nurses, and medical workers are placed on the last line. We are the last resource to come for when infections happened. But the public is on the front line, so let’s keep fighting the pandemic together,” he said.Topics : Besides medical treatment, COVID-19 patients also need companionship, a nurse at the Sulianti Saroso Infectious Diseases Hospital (RSPI) said.Nurdiansyah shared his experience treating patients at the COVID-19 referral hospital in a press conference held by the National Disaster Mitigation Agency (BNPB) on Sunday.”One nurse currently handles three to four patients,” he said. “One patient can take up to one hour for each treatment.” He said that sometimes nurses might even spend three to four hours at a time with a single patient, because some patients are afraid to be left alone.”We have to motivate patients and strengthen them mentally so that their immune system is also strengthened,” he said. “They hold our hands and we encourage them. They need mental support.”Nurdiansyah said that nurses helped coach patients who experienced shortness of breath and tried to comfort patients with lighthearted television programs.He said the first thing the nurses did before their shift every morning was pray for the patients’ recovery and the medical workers’ safety.
