HMAS Anzac Welcomes New Crew Members

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Anzac Welcomes New Crew Members View post tag: members After a hectic year, the crew of the Royal Australian Navy frigate HMAS Anzac is undergoing significant change as new crew members are welcomed, and many longstanding members are farewelled as they take up new challenges.Anzac’s outgoing Commanding Officer, Commander Matthew Doornbos, was the longest standing officer in the ship’s company of around 180 officers and sailors, and one of the many crew members preparing for their next posting.Commander Doornbos said:In mid-November we welcomed aboard over 25 new joiners to Anzac, and more will be joining in the coming weeks as the ship prepares to undertake a deployment which will see her visit Gallipoli in April, along with other destinations in the northern hemisphere.While it would be easy for us to begin to relax and let the new crew finalise the preparations, the entire ship’s crew takes a great deal of pride in getting the ship ready for her deployment – even those of us who won’t be undertaking the voyage.We have put to sea again this week to bring new crew up to speed, and continue the process of gaining the ship’s sea qualifications following her recent Anti-Ship Missile Defence upgrade.Communication flow is a critical element of modern warfare and Anzac’s Communications and Information Systems Manager, Chief Petty Officer Craig Andrew, has been busy overseeing the fitting, testing and implementation of a communications suite that will be vital during Anzac’s global deployment in 2015.The new communications capabilities are important for achieving our mission, which will see major challenges during 2015, such as live broadcasts on Anzac Day, and interoperability with foreign navies during various exercises.While many Australians look forward to extended Summer vacations, the hardworking crew of Anzac will have only a short break before continuing on with their deployment preparations.Press release, Image: Australian Navy Share this article View post tag: Asia-Pacific View post tag: Australia Authorities View post tag: Navy View post tag: HMAS Anzaccenter_img HMAS Anzac Welcomes New Crew Members View post tag: Naval January 5, 2015 View post tag: News by topic View post tag: crew View post tag: New View post tag: welcomeslast_img read more

Tomato growing can be a challenging hobby

first_imgGrowing tomatoes is a popular hobby for many home gardeners. It has been difficult to grow tomatoes during the past several years in Georgia because of factors like extreme temperatures, dry conditions, tomato spotted wilt virus and blossom-end rot diseases.Tiny thrips carry the virusTSWV is a virus detrimental to tomato plants. Tiny insects called thrips cause it. The insects have cost Georgia farmers millions of dollars through the damage they cause to tomatoes, tobacco and peanuts.The thrips that carry the virus and transmit it to the tomatoes cause the plant’s foliage to turn purple. The leaves also have a bronze cast. The fruit has mosaic or mottled light-green configurations on the outer fruit peeling.There are several varieties of tomatoes available that are resistant to the virus. They include Amelia, Crista, BHN 444 and BHN 640. Check with your local agriculture and garden supplier for the availability of these varieties.Monitor pH to prevent blossom-end rotBlossom-end rot appears as a small water-soaked spot near the blossom end of the tomato. The spot eventually enlarges and becomes dry, sunken and brown or black. Insufficient calcium uptake by the plant causes blossom-end rot.Any condition that reduces the plant’s roots ability to absorb water sets the plant up for blossom-end rot. This can be caused by root-rotting fungus, nematodes, too much water, not enough water, soil compaction or too much fertilization.To prevent blossom-end rot, maintain a soil pH between 6.0 and 6.5 and supply adequate levels of calcium through applications of dolomitic limestone or gypsum. Avoid drought stress and extreme moisture fluctuations by using mulch and irrigating deeply once or twice a week.Avoid over-fertilizing plants with high ammonia-calcium-nitrogen fertilizer. Excessive nitrogen can depress the uptake of calcium. Foliar applications of calcium with products like Blossom End Rot Stop are only short-term fixes.Following these tips will help you grow better, healthier tomatoes this growing season.last_img read more

Rousseff Organizes Transition in Brazil and Foresees “Close” Relationship with U.S.

first_imgBy Dialogo November 04, 2010 It is premature to make an assessment of the true intentions of the elected President without first knowing the nominal composition of her ministers and assistants and the actual definition of the plans of her government, campaign promises so far. If president Lula was in some way in internal politics…surely in external politics it was a disaster brought about by his chancellor Celso Amorin and one of his closest advisors…Marcos Aureli Garcia. His closest “friends” were the brothers Castro; Chaves; Ivo Morales and amazingly: Ahmadinejad!!!! His external policies were not practical, but were merely ideological in nature. All of us Brazilians expect from Dilma Roussef a correction to this policy especially the support given to Ahmadinejad so he can get his atomic bomb and create a global threat and not just regional. You can judge a man by the company he keeps! Will the ex-military Dilma have the wisdom for that? Let’s hope so. Brazilian President-elect Dilma Rousseff has begun to organize the transition to her administration and to delineate her foreign policy, in which area, she says, she hopes to have a “close but sovereign” relationship with the United States. Rousseff, who will take office on 1 January, distributed tasks among her principal team of advisors prior to taking a few days off and preparing for her first official trips abroad. She also revealed details of her future foreign policy upon indicating that she aims to have a close but “sovereign” relationship with the United States, and she mentioned that South-South relations will maintain the importance they currently have in her administration. “I aim to have a close relationship with the United States, but also a sovereign one. The respect I want is the same respect I will give,” said the president-elect, who said that she had “the best of impressions” of President Barack Obama. Upon referring to the transition process, she revealed that she will put together a team with technical expertise and leadership ability. “In this phase, we’re not thinking about names or about distributing jobs, but I want to make it clear that I’m going to demand technical expertise and political leadership from everyone who works for me,” she told the television network SBT.last_img read more

Adjusting for those with special needs: How groups and families are working together

first_imgThey’re also looking to help by sending daily visual materials and by staying in touch any way possible. This includes families with children with developmental disabilities, where not having face-to-face interaction can be tough. For more coronavirus coverage, click here. (WBNG) — We’ve all been adjusting to life while social distancing. “Ethan has a wonderful support system at his new school. It’s been interesting because we’ve been doing all of these Zoom meetings and tele-therapies, which are very difficult for a child on the spectrum to sit through,” said Montrose, Penn. resident Danielle Lewis. “Put on a nice face, somehow, and just tell your son or your daughter we’ll be alright. This will be over. I don’t know when, but we’ll be alright,” said Colletti. Disruptions from routine can be extremely difficult, so special needs groups are encouraging parents to keep it simple. “As a network just trying to figure out which platforms work best to communicate with the families. Which ones work best for the different programs. How to get the videos out and how to get the information out,” says GiGi’s Playhouse Program Coordinator Anna Bruce. “Any kind of change in life is difficult. So right now this is a change. So what we’ve done and I’ve always said, go back to what works. Go back to the simple. Go back to just right in front of them,” said Founder of Advocates for Autism Sally Colletti. This collaborative effort will help celebrate these amazing individuals, while also taking care of each other by staying strong. “We have a local autism awareness Facebook group and I rely heavily on that to kind of go and ask other people what they’re doing in these situations to help out the kiddos and also to celebrate things they are doing,” says Lewis.last_img read more
