Romanian Navy Pilots Conduct Training aboard USS Whidbey Island

first_img View post tag: USS Sailors aboard USS Whidbey Island (LSD 41) conducted deck landing qualification (DLQ) training with Romanian navy pilots July 31-Aug. 1 as part of the bilateral exercise Summer Storm 2011.The eight Romanian pilots, the only aviators in that country’s navy, are members of “Black Sea Knights” and fly the IAR-330 Puma helicopter.“There are over 400 pilots in Romania’s air force,” said Lt. Cmdr. Marius Metric, the Black Sea Knights commander. “Our naval aviation program is five years old and there are eight of us.”Metric flew Pumas for 10 years in the Romanian Air Force before transferring to the navy and taking command of the squadron in 2010. The three Pumas assigned to his squadron primarily operate with Romanian frigates and perform a wide range of missions, including search and rescue, medical evacuations, vertical replenishments and insertions and extractions.“It was very inspiring working with them,” said Lt.j.g. Jason Canonigo, Whidbey Island’s helicopter control officer. “They are extremely professional and it was one of the top training exercises we’ve been through. From their procedures to their communication, everything they did is exactly the way you see it in the book.”The Whidbey Island helicopter control officers met the Romanian pilots for a face-to-face discussion the day before the DLQs commenced. This allowed them to go over the details in depth and establish a rapport, said Canonigo.“Whether your program is 100 years old or five, you’re always looking for ways to improve the way you work,” said Canonigo. “You’re always trying to get better, and one of the ways we do that is through exercises like these.”“This was great training for us, particularly the junior guys who are on their first deployment,” said Boatswain’s Mate 2nd Class (SW) Desmond Charles, who served as one of the Landing Signalmen Enlisted (LSE) during the DLQs. “It’s good for them to gain familiarity with different types of aircraft and to work with pilots from different navies.”The Romanian pilots expressed their excitement at working together as well as a strong belief in the future of Romanian naval aviation.“One of my goals during this exercise is to learn your procedures and see how you operate,” said Lt. Petre Pavlov, the Black Sea Knights commander of patrols and liaison officer on board Whidbey Island. “I want to remain in naval aviation and train future aviators as an instructor.”The Whidbey Island is deployed as part of the Bataan Amphibious Ready Group, supporting maritime security operations and theater security cooperation efforts in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of responsibility.[mappress]Source: navy, August 2, 2011; Back to overview,Home naval-today Romanian Navy Pilots Conduct Training aboard USS Whidbey Island View post tag: Training View post tag: Whidbey View post tag: Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Island Romanian Navy Pilots Conduct Training aboard USS Whidbey Islandcenter_img Training & Education August 2, 2011 View post tag: Romanian View post tag: News by topic View post tag: conduct View post tag: Pilots Share this articlelast_img read more

Balliol College apologises for 300 years of taking money linked to the slave trade

first_imgThe Master of Balliol College, Oxford has apologised for the historical acceptance of donations linked to the slave trade over the past 300 years. Dame Helen Ghosh, Master of Balliol College, said the college’s research showed that it had accepted the equivalent of £2 million in today’s money from benefactors with links to the slave trade. This accounts for around 10% of donations between 1600 and 1919. The college’s endowment is worth around £123 million. In recent years, the college has seen a wave of progressivism including starting a scholarship fund for black and ethnic minority students named after Sir Seretse Khama, the first president of Botswana and a former Balliol student. It has also taken measures including divesting from fossil fuels and increasing accessibility within the college. Ghosh is the former director-general of the National Trust where she established a research program to investigate how Britain’s great country homes were linked to the slave trade.  Balliol College has been contacted for comment. Some of the donations came from the owners of slave plantations and those who owned ships that transported slaves. Ghosh described this connection as “highly regret[table] whatever the level of donation”. The research, which will be published later this year, also revealed that Balliol’s most notable benefactor is William Beckford, whose family owned a slave plantation and bought the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire. Speaking to The Sunday Times, Ghosh said: “Of course, looking back on this now we are sorry that we took those donations — whatever might have been in the minds of people who took them at the time.” Balliol’s decision is part of a series of steps taken by various colleges to help retrospectively rectify their relations with colonialism. All Souls College, recently paid a £100,000 grant to a college in Barbados in recognition of its funding from Christopher Codrington, a wealthy slave owner who left £10,000 to build a library. The building was also renamed in January in an effort to make amends over Oxford’s contentious history, though they have kept the statue of Codrington. A decision on whether Oriel College might remove their statue of Cecil Rhodes is also expected soon. Image Credit: Betty Longbottom/CC BY-SA 2.0last_img read more

Press release: Property bosses to pay thousands after abusing company accounts

first_imgHusband and wife, Dawn and Jacob Goulde, of Hatch End, North West London, were the directors of London and Berkshire Limited. Incorporated in August 2009, the company was concerned with property valuation and surveying.Just six years later, however, London and Berkshire was shut down by the courts in June 2015 following a petition by the tax authorities to wind-up the company.The Official Receiver was appointed by the court to undertake the liquidation, as well as carry out investigations into why the company failed and the conduct of the directors.Investigations established that Dawn and Jacob had personally benefited from payments taken out of the company’s bank accounts of at least £182,000. The payments were made between January 2010 and April 2013 and the couple were unable to justify them.Over the same period, Dawn and Jacob also failed to file any tax returns on behalf of the company, resulting in the tax authorities having to raise outstanding charges of just under £200,000. The sum also included arrears for unpaid corporate tax and employee contributions.Further enquiries by the Official Receiver found that the company only made one payment of just over £6,000 to the tax authorities throughout the life of London and Berkshire.On 6 February 2019, the Official Receiver obtained a court judgement committing Dawn and Jacob to payback just over £182,000 – the money taken from the company that they had personally benefited from – plus costs.Neither Dawn nor Jacob Goulde were present at the hearing nor did they send representatives and in their absence, Judge Jones described the sums taken from the company were ‘gratuitous, unjustified payments’.Anthony Hannon, the Official Receiver, said: Twitter Securing back the money Dawn and Jacob unreasonably took will benefit London and Berkshire’s creditors, while also serving as a strong warning to others who think they can do the same that we will obtain redress through the courts against those who abuse their director responsibilities. Running a limited company doesn’t give you license to treat it as a cash cow but that’s exactly what Dawn and Jacob Goulde did when they removed thousands of pounds for their own benefit. They also completely failed to pay the taxes, other than a token amount, in just another clear example of their dereliction of duty.

No practice, no problem! How teams are adjusting

first_img“Probably the best programs in the area, that’s when they take advantage of it. It takes off in June, July and August. The ones who make the most of it really end up having the most success.” “You want your senior season, it’s definitely scary not knowing,” says Scott. “You just have to keep going and do the best with what you have, and go from there,” said Hogan. Coach Hogan and his staff have gotten creative to motivate the Blue Devils, turning individual training into a competition. Right now, high school teams are training with no way of knowing whether or not there will be a fall sports season, which isn’t easy for anyone. In the meantime, the Forks mindset is to prepare as if football will be back. Incoming senior back Lucas Scott says Chenango Forks always adapts when something is thrown their way, but said it’s been difficult not being able to workout as a team. Organized team practices will be able to begin once Governor Andrew Cuomo gives the green light.center_img Hogan said this has been a fun way to keep the team encouraged to work on their skills. Scott told 12 Sports the team keeps track of everything on a Google Drive. “Every kid has their own folder so you submit your own video for doing your workouts, says Scott, “and they actually made teams out of it so it’s like a competition.” “The biggest part is just being around with all of the guys, we’re all working out pretty hard but it’s just being with 40 guys on the turf, running, everything together we miss that,” says Scott. Hogan says this week would have been the start of team practices, which include weight room, agility and cardio training. These are important steps to ease the team into the regular season, and are especially useful when it comes to injuries. Chenango Forks football coach and Athletic Director Dave Hogan says typically at this time of year, his team would be well into workouts. Hogan says this is a setback, but it’s one all teams in our area are experiencing. TOWN OF CHENANGO (WBNG) — High schools athletes across the Southern Tier are adjusting after hearing organized team practices are not allowed to begin under phase four. last_img read more

Ebola medics in Liberia ‘recovering’

first_img Sharing is caring! Share Tweet HealthInternationalLifestylePrint Ebola medics in Liberia ‘recovering’ by: – August 19, 2014 Sharecenter_img Three doctors in Liberia with Ebola who started taking an experimental drug last Thursday are showing remarkable signs of improvement, a minister says.ZMapp was first given earlier this month to two US aid workers, who were flown home for treatment from Liberia.Ebola has no cure but the World Health Organization (WHO) has ruled that untested drugs can be used in light of the scale of outbreak in West Africa.Since the beginning of the year, 1,229 people have died of the virus.It is transmitted by direct contact with the body fluids of an infected person. Initial flu-like symptoms can lead to external haemorrhaging from areas such as eyes and gums, and internal bleeding which can cause organ failure.The outbreak began in Guinea and has since spread to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Nigeria.Health officials in Guinea say the country has suffered a setback in its fight against the epidemic, seeing a resurgence of cases in the town of Macenta.The BBC’s Alhassan Sillah in Guinea says the town had not had any cases for two months, and the authorities had dismantled all Ebola facilities in that area.Public awareness campaigns are being stepped up across the region as some people believe Ebola is a hoaxThe health authorities believe that Guineans returning from neighbouring Liberia are carrying the virus.In Liberia, Information Minister Lewis Brown said the government only received a small number of ZMapp doses and gave them to one Nigerian and two Liberian doctors who had caught Ebola whilst helping save the lives of other victims of the virus.Two US missionaries who received doses of the medicine are also reportedly recovering, but a 75-year-old Spanish priest who contracted Ebola in Liberia died in Spain last week despite being given the drug.The US pharmaceutical company that makes the drug says it has for now run out of it, so the only way to stop the current outbreak is to isolate the victims and those who have come into contact with them.Mr Brown also said 17 suspected Ebola patients who went missing after a health centre in the capital was attacked have been found.In Nigeria, which has had four fatal Ebola cases, health officials say five people have now recovered from the virus and have been discharged from hospital in Lagos. Another three are still being treated.Since the outbreak spread to Nigeria in July, when a person infected with Ebola flew from Liberia to Lagos, several airlines have stopped flights to the worst-affected countries.Kenya’s ban on people from Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone entering the East African nation comes into force on Wednesday – and Cameroon has closed its land, sea and air borders with Nigeria.BBC News 47 Views   no discussions Sharelast_img read more
