US, Vietnamese Navies Hold First SAR Exercise

first_img Training & Education US, Vietnamese Navies Hold First SAR Exercise Back to overview,Home naval-today US, Vietnamese Navies Hold First SAR Exercise View post tag: SAR View post tag: Navy View post tag: Vietnamese View post tag: Navies View post tag: first View post tag: Exercise View post tag: hold View post tag: Naval April 15, 2014 Guided-missile destroyer USS John S. McCain (DDG 56) conducted a search and rescue (SAR) exercise with a Vietnam People’s Navy (VPN) minesweeper off the coast of Da Nang, Vietnam, April 12. This first SAR event between the U.S. and Vietnamese navies occurred a few hours after McCain got underway from the port of Da Nang, concluding six days of professional exchanges and skills transfers as part of Naval Engagement Activity (NEA) Vietnam that began April 7. “After a very productive series of naval exchanges in Da Nang this week, our at sea exercise today was an important stepping stone in building confidence to operate together in the maritime domain,” said Capt. Paul Schlise, commodore, Destroyer Squadron 7 and commander, Task Group 73.1.After McCain rendezvoused with HQ-862, both ships commenced a coordinated search for a simulated distressed vessel. The ships practiced bridge-to-bridge communications, flaghoist drills and search patterns to locate and render assistance to the simulated distressed vessel. Upon conclusion, the ships exchanged farewell messages and McCain continued out to sea.“Both ships did a fine job executing this search and rescue training – communications were professional and the crews handled their ships well – setting the tone for follow-on events between our navies,” said Cmdr. Chase Sargeant, commanding officer, USS John S. McCain.2014 marks the fifth consecutive NEA Vietnam and the 10th year that U.S. Navy ships have called upon the port of Da Nang. McCain last visited Da Nang in August 2010 as part of the inaugural NEA Vietnam, which coincided with the 15th anniversary of the normalization of diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Vietnam.As with previous years, NEA Vietnam 2014 focused on professional exchanges between the VPN and U.S. Navy in military medicine, SAR, diving and salvage and shipboard damage control. NEA also provides an opportunity to develop mutual understanding and enduring relationships that will serve both navies for many years to come through ship tours, 7th Fleet band concerts, sporting events and community service projects.Approximately 400 U.S. Navy Sailors and civilian mariners participated in NEA Vietnam 2014. Participating units include USS John S. McCain (DDG 56), USNS Safeguard (T-ARS 50) with embarked Mobile Diving and Salvage Unit, Explosive Ordnance Disposal Mobile Unit 5, staff from Destroyer Squadron 7 and Commander, Task Force 73 and the U.S. 7th Fleet Band, Orient Express.[mappress]Press Release, April 15, 2014; Image: US Navy View post tag: US View post tag: News by topic Share this articlelast_img read more

Finding her place by helping

first_imgThis is one in a series of profiles showcasing some of Harvard’s stellar graduates. Like many first-year college students who have to wrestle with new surroundings and expectations while handling feelings of loneliness and isolation, Jing Qiu ’16 at first couldn’t help but feel lost.It wasn’t until the summer after her freshman year, when she spent seven weeks teaching math and reading skills to elementary school students in Cambridge’s lower-income neighborhoods, that Qiu found herself.“I learned so much about myself, about others and the world around me,” Qiu said on a recent morning at the Phillips Brooks House Association (PBHA), Harvard’s umbrella organization for more than 80 social service programs that draw 1,500 student volunteers a year.After her first experience at PBHA, Qiu stayed connected and never looked back. She went on to volunteer in Cambridge Youth Afterschool, where Harvard students tutor elementary students with homework and teach math and reading skills, and in Leaders!, where students mentor teens to gain leadership skills and help them as they explore paths to college.For the past three summers, she has taken part in Cambridge Youth Enrichment, leading students in science and cultural workshops and camping trips. For most of her free time over the past four years, she has worked in PBHA’s social service programs. She also interned at the Breakthrough Collaborative and the Boston Collegiate Charter School.Qiu was awarded a Presidential Public Service Fellowship in 2014. In her junior year, she became PBHA vice president, and she stepped into the presidency in her senior year.An economics concentrator, she had originally thought of working as a consultant. Now she plans to pursue a career in nonprofit work.Students who volunteer with any program within the association have to commit to eight hours of service per week. The challenge is balancing schoolwork and extracurricular activities, but for Qiu, choosing between studying for a midterm or working at PBHA was always a no-brainer.“We have an inside joke that PBHA is the best class you can take at Harvard,” said Qiu. “It’s definitely true. I learned a lot from my classes. But what I learned at PBHA, dealing with people, working with others, and leading people, was more fulfilling, and it’s knowledge I can apply anywhere.”After she graduates, she will be a Harvard Teacher Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Education.The child of Chinese activists who left China in the wake of the Tiananmen Square protests and who settled in St. Louis, Mo., Qiu views public service as a social responsibility because, she said, it’s everybody’s job to reduce the gap between the haves and the have-nots.“Many times, you leave with more questions than answers,” she said of her volunteer work. “Why does this program have to exist? Why don’t these children have access to programs that their peers have access to? You’re overcome by the sense that there’s injustice in the world, and the question is how do you grapple with these issues without feeling despair?”At PBHA, Qiu found a community of like-minded people who offered support when she felt her own despair and made her feel empowered to do more.Growing up in St. Louis, she felt part of the “privileged poor,” a term coined by Harvard sociologist Anthony Jack that refers to low-income students who attend private schools, often on scholarships. On her mother’s employer’s recommendation, Qiu attended a private elementary school and high school on full financial aid. As a first-generation college student, she was also awarded full financial aid at Harvard.Now, Qiu would like to remind incoming freshmen that community service is not only an extracurricular activity, it’s a pursuit that could lead to new career paths.“Public service is an integral part of your college experience,” she said. “It not only makes you a better person, but it also makes you think a lot about who you are and where your place is in the world.”last_img read more

Prolonged TV watching ‘raises diabetes risk’

first_imgHealthLifestyle Prolonged TV watching ‘raises diabetes risk’ by: – June 15, 2011 By Michelle RobertsHealth reporter, BBC NewsTelly time may distract from more ‘healthy’ activities, say the researchersCouch potatoes beware, say researchers who link prolonged TV watching with an increased risk of diabetes and heart disease.Every additional two hours spent in front of the box each day raises the diabetes risk by a fifth and heart disease risk by 15%, a study found.Switching it off and doing something more strenuous instead could stop two people in every thousand developing these conditions, the authors say.The work appears in the journal JAMA.“The message is simple. Cutting back on TV watching can significantly reduce risk of type-2 diabetes, heart disease and premature mortality,” said lead researcher Professor Frank Hu, of the Harvard School of Public Health.The researchers say it is not TV viewing per se that is the problem, but that people who spend hours watching programmes are less likely to lead an active lifestyle as a result and, in turn, are more likely to be overweight or obese.They say other sedentary activities, like sitting in front of a computer playing games or surfing the internet, might have a similar effect, and this should be studied.The investigators examined the findings of eight large studies that included over 175,000 people and looked at the health risks associated with TV viewing.The results showed that more than two hours of TV viewing per day increased risk of type-2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and more than three hours of daily viewing increased risk of premature death.The researchers estimate that for every additional two hours of TV watched a day there is an increased risk of an extra 38 people in every 100,000 in the US dying from heart and circulatory disease and 176 people in every 100,000 developing diabetes.Dr Iain Frame, of Diabetes UK, said the findings should be a wake-up call about the risk of leading a sedentary lifestyle. He said evidence suggests physical activity can reduce the risk of type-2 diabetes by over 60%.Maureen Talbot, of the British Heart Foundation, said: “I’m sure we’ve all unintentionally lost evenings slumped on the sofa in front of the TV snacking on crisps and biscuits and drinking sugary drinks or alcohol. But it’s important that this doesn’t become a regular activity.“We should try to be selective in how much time we spend watching the TV, and try to be more physically active instead.“We need 30 minutes of physical activity at least five days a week to keep our hearts healthy, so why not take a walk after work, join a sports team or even just get out for a bit of gardening in the evenings. It’s bound to be a lot more rewarding than staring at the box.”According to the researchers, people in European countries spend around three-to-four hours a day on average watching TV, while people in the US do so for five hours a day.

Crossing the Line for Looks That Could Kill

first_imgPresident Bush may have vetoed one stem-cell bill for moral reasons (see Brad Harrub’s report on Apologetics Press), but in other countries where Judeo-Christian values are less prevalent, morality seems a low hurdle in the race to exploit biological resources that promise health, youth, beauty – and money.    With embryonic stem cell research at the forefront of research priorities, a natural law is showing its effects: the law of unintended consequences.  The methods of obtaining cells for research, and new applications for their ready availability, are already stepping beyond the original intent of saving lives.  Here are signals the brave new world is upon us:Merchandising Human Life:  Nature August 10 had no less than four articles about the sale of human eggs for embryonic stem cell research.  An Editorial1 began with this chilling opening:Clashing perspectives on the ethics of the donation of human eggs for research purposes are likely to complicate international collaboration – whether stem-cell researchers like it or not.    What price a human egg?  The question provokes a variety of emotions and responses.  Some will argue that an egg has no monetary value when it is just one of those ovulated each month by billions of women and that perishes unfertilized.  Others might contend that the same egg is priceless – because it could, if introduced to the correct sperm, form the seed of a new person.  Others still will find it morally problematic even to pose the question, on the grounds that it treats human cells as merchandise.    But the question is being asked, nonetheless…The Editorial quickly moved on to pragmatic matters about how to obtain the valued eggs without violating donors’ rights.Check Catching:  Erika Check wrote an article in the same issue of Nature2 about how ethicists are trying to reach a consensus on the price of human eggs donated for stem cell research. Stem-cell researchers want eggs so they can work on somatic cell nuclear transfer, or ‘therapeutic cloning’.  They hope to derive embryonic stem cells matched to patients’ DNA, by transferring the nucleus of one of the patient’s cells into a human egg and developing it into an embryo from which cells can be derived.  The technique has great medical potential – but researchers are far from achieving it, and the main limiting factor in the research is the availability of human eggs to practise on.Some feel that female donors who go through the discomfort of donating eggs should be compensated for the pain and effort, especially those from poor countries.  “Others are worried that this will create an undue incentive that will coerce women – especially poorer ones – into giving up their eggs,” Check explains.  “The fact that so little is known about the long-term health risks of the procedure further complicates the picture….”Into the Unknown:  Helen Pearson, in her article in Nature,3 explored why “There is little information on how frequently ovulation stimulation has tragic side effects” on women who donate eggs for research.  Part of the problem is that doctors are reluctant to report such effects “and rarely have to.”  Though deaths are thought to be rare, long-term effects such as ovarian cancer are little understood when fertility drugs or other methods are used to stimulate ovulation.Setting the Price:  Insoo Hyun argued in Nature4 that paying women for egg donations is the best practice, but did consider the downside:Another worry is that compensation could have the unintended effect of enticing socio-economically disadvantaged women to volunteer as oocyte providers.  It is unclear whether this concern is mainly about undue inducement, which we have just addressed, or about the exploitation of vulnerable populations.  If the latter, then it is worth noting that, for decades, ethical review bodies have been responsible for scrutinizing researchers’ recruitment strategies to ensure that vulnerable populations are not unjustly enlisted.  Oocyte procurement for stem-cell research should not be held to a lesser standard.Hyun did not consider the fallout from this year’ Huang scandal, in which the strong motivation for leadership in stem-cell research induced the researchers to cross ethical boundaries and coerce female team members to donate human eggs.Beauty and the Beast:  Stem cell therapies are already creating a market for “A barbaric kind of beauty,” wrote Andrea Thompson for the Daily Mail.  Some countries with lower ethical standards, like the Netherlands, are enticing women with a “cutting edge nonsurgical treatment” that promises to make them “look ten years younger.”  Thompson begins with the story of a 52-year-old British women who doesn”t have time for ethical questions:She doesn’t care if the treatment is expensive, involves babies and is so controversial that it is not allowed to be performed in this country – among her well-heeled friends, this is the ultimate new elixir of youth.In Britain, stem cell therapies are limited to “registered institutions using cells from embryos up to 14 days old or aborted foetuses donated to science,” but such limitations do not apply abroad, where whole industries are happy to cater to their “needs.”  And if things go awry, well, no business wants the bad publicity.  The new rage, she describes, is unregulated stem cell treatments abroad with plenty of promises of beauty, with no ethical qualms.Incubators for Baby Parts:  Focus on the Family’s Citizen Link had a short article about how “In an insatiable quest to look young, women are traveling overseas for injections of aborted fetal cells as part of anti-aging treatments.”  But the fetuses are not the only victims: “In countries like Georgia and Ukraine, young girls are being used as incubators for the babies whose cells will be harvested.”  The risky procedures have no clinical trials; “About the 12th week, the baby is aborted and the fetal cells sold to cosmetic clinics.  The girls earn about $200 for their trouble.”WWJD:  Tom Strode on Baptist Press described the opinion of former Democrat congressman Chris Bell, who is campaigning for bringing ES research to Texas.  Bell is appealing to Christ’s compassion on the sick to argue that Jesus would support embryonic stem cell research.  Strode points out, however, that “Embryonic research has yet to treat any diseases in human beings and has been plagued by the development of tumors in lab animals” – unlike adult stem cells, which have a long track record of success without the moral concerns.  “Extracting stem cells from an embryo destroys the tiny human being,” he said.  See related article on LifeNews.David Miller argued on Apologetics Press that only a return to Biblical ethics will stem the tide of moral abominations that treat human embryos as merchandise.  He argues from the Bible that taking embryonic life is equivalent to something God hates: “hands that shed innocent blood.”  He concludes, “The fact that we even are debating this subject demonstrates the extent to which the nation has strayed from its commitment to and reliance on the God of the Universe—yet another unmistakable manifestation of America’s downward spiral into moral and spiritual depravity.” 1Editorial, “Safeguards for donors,” Nature 442, 601(10 August 2006) | doi:10.1038/442601a; Published online 9 August 2006.2Erika Check, “Special Report: Ethicists and biologists ponder the price of eggs,” Nature 442, 606-607(10 August 2006) | doi:10.1038/442606a; Published online 9 August 2006.3Helen Pearson, “Special Report: Health effects of egg donation may take decades to emerge,” Nature 442, 607-608(10 August 2006) | doi:10.1038/442607a; Published online

could walk into a prison and go shopping: “Let’s see; I’ll take that one’s skin, this one’s kidneys, and that one’s head on a platter.”  The jailer would quickly expedite the order and dispose of the leftovers in the garbage.  To what degree is this different, if the prisoner is a fetus in the womb?    Surprisingly few churches are even discussing these issues.  In their quest to portray a non-confrontational, seeker-friendly image to draw in crowds, have many of today’s men of God in the pulpit become dumb dogs who cannot bark?  Where is the Isaiah for 2006?  If you think the current stem-cell atrocities listed here are bad, the day is young in this new age of the godless.  These are only the beginning of sorrows.  The day may come when even the non-religious pray for a Christian revival.(Visited 20 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

Jose Mourinho chides ‘inhuman’ Manchester United’s schedule

first_imgManchester United manager Jose Mourinho has termed his side’s jammed-packed schedule as ‘not human’ after the club’s growing list of injuries continue to threaten their hopes of making top-four finish in the Premier League.United slumped to their sixth stalemate in eight games following their 1-1 draw against Swansea City at Old Trafford, thus harming their hopes of a place in next season’s Champions League.To add to their woes, the Mourinho-led side are also hit with number of injuries.Luke Shaw, who was criticised by Mourinho earlier this month, was forced to walk off the field during the draw after nine minutes with an injury to his left leg.United also lost fellow defender Eric Bailly ahead of Thursday’s Europa League first leg semi-final visit to Celta Vigo.Meanwhile, Marcos Rojo, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling are already sidelined.Reflecting on the same, the Portuguese manager said although his side do not seem to be tired and exhausted, they are quite affected by the hectic schedule in reality.”We lost players and we lost points, so yes today was a bad day. We did not look tired and exhausted, we are tired and exhausted,” Sport24 quoted Mourinho as saying”You cannot isolate the performance out of the context. This is the ninth match of April, it is not human. We have a squad of 22 that is reduced to 13 or 14 players. The players are very tired,” he addedWith Paul Pogba and Marouane Fellaini returning against Vigo from injury and suspension respectively, Mourinho remains hopeful that his team would continue their amazing spirit and bring the side back on track.advertisement”I trust the boys, the spirit is amazing. The group is phenomenal. Fellaini and Pogba will be back for that game, so a bit more options and we try with everything we have and we go again,” the former Chelsea boss said.United are currently standing at fifth spot in the Premier League table, having 17 wins from 34 games they played so far.last_img read more
