USS Theodore Roosevelt Refuels after Three Years

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today USS Theodore Roosevelt Refuels after Three Years View post tag: USS February 12, 2013 USS Theodore Roosevelt Refuels after Three Years View post tag: Theodore View post tag: Roosevelt View post tag: years View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topiccenter_img View post tag: Refuels View post tag: Naval View post tag: after Training & Education View post tag: three USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN 71) took on 500,000 gallons of JP-5 fuel Feb. 10, marking the first time the ship has received fuel since it entered refueling and complex overhaul (RCOH) more than three years ago.Sailors assigned to TR’s Air Department V-4 division oversaw the operation, which involved a barge pulling alongside the ship and hooking up fuel lines to transfer the JP-5.Chief Aviation Boatswain’s Mate Ernest Carter, V-4 division’s leading chief petty officer, said V-4 has been training for months to ensure the evolution was successful.“Right now the process is going great,” said Carter.Once the barge was alongside TR, V-4 Sailors and shipyard workers from Newport News Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries, connected fuel hoses to the ship’s JP-5 lines and began pumping fuel.“The hardest part was learning all of the pumps, parts and valves, how they operate, and troubleshooting,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fuels) Airman Averitt Sales. “There were a lot of challenges.”Because of the large quantity of fuel involved and most of the fuel pipes and tanks have been refurbished, the entire ship had to be vigilant to ensure a successful onload, Carter said. “There is always a hazard and danger of gaskets blowing,” said Carter. “The way we combat that is just to have Sailors out roving the ship with tools ready to tighten things down and secure pumping, if need be.”Cmdr. Dan Case, TR’s air boss, said the onload marked an important milestone for TR, allowing for the crew to start planning for future flight operations.“This is one step closer to getting underway,” said Case. “One important thing we do at sea is to fuel aircraft. To do that, we have to take on fuel, and we do that a lot as we go through deployment and workups. Today gives us a chance to test a lot of our systems that have not been exercised in the past four years. The next time that we do a lot of the testing will be when we go out for sea trials. By then, we will be able to fuel all of our aircraft during sea trials and flight deck certification.”TR is in the final months of RCOH at Newport News shipbuilding and is preparing to return to the operational fleet.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, February 12, 2013; Image: US Navy Share this articlelast_img read more

Press release: Minister for Middle East welcomes report by OPCW confirming reasonable grounds to conclude the use of chemical weapons in Douma attack

first_img Email [email protected] For journalists Further information Follow Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt @AlistairBurtUK The UK welcomes the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) report published today (1 March) confirming that there are reasonable grounds to conclude that a toxic chemical, likely chlorine, was used as a weapon in Douma on 7 April 2018. We remember the many victims of that attack and their families today and remain committed to seeking the justice they deserve. This is the latest in a long line of instances where the OPCW has confirmed that chemical weapons have been used in Syria. We welcome further investigations by the newly-mandated OPCW team, who will now work to attribute responsibility to the perpetrators of these hideous attacks. The UK once again calls on the regime to engage meaningfully with the OPCW to fully declare and destroy all aspects of its past and current chemical weapons programme. The use of chemical weapons cannot be allowed to become normal – either in Syria, on UK streets or elsewhere. We call on the regime’s backers to use their influence to ensure the regime never uses chemical weapons again. The UK remains committed to working with fellow members of the Chemical Weapons Convention to strengthen implementation of the Convention, and to challenge any efforts to undermine the ban on these vile weapons. Follow the Foreign Office on Instagram, YouTube and LinkedIn The Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) has published a report confirming that there are reasonable grounds to conclude that a toxic chemical was used as a weapon in Douma on 7 April 2018.The Rt Hon Alistair Burt MP, Minister of State for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office welcomed the report, stating: Media enquiries Follow the Foreign Office on Twitter @foreignoffice and Facebooklast_img read more

Watch The Black Keys And Cage The Elephant Members Sit In With Prophets Of Rage In Nashville

first_imgLast night, the Rage Against The Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets Of Rage brought their “Make America Rage Again” tour to Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN, and they invited some local special guests to help them out on stage. Dan Auerbach of The Black Keys and Matt Shultz of Cage The Elephant, both Nashville residents, joined the band for their cover of MC5’s “Kick Out the Jams”.Prophets of Rage had previously been joined (twice) by Foo Fighters man Dave Grohl on the cover, but this super-charged version may take the cake. The performance was certainly high energy, with Shultz’ wild skills as a front man on full display as he sprinted around the stage. Auerbach added his trademark bluesy guitar solos as he traded licks with Tom Morello towards the end of the track.Thanks to YouTube user Bert McCarley, we can watch the awesome guest spot in all its glory.

He explains,All of these songs kind of harken back to how we started, to being known as this musical family band that comes from the church and appeals to rock, blues, gospel and soul music audiences. We wanted that good gospel, blues, R&B feel, because that’s where we started and it’s good to not only remind people of that but to actively remember it ourselves. Dave Cobb is just a guy who likes to record good music and good songs. He wanted to do something that was fun but it also gives you a gospel feeling. He knows the history of our band, coming from church and giving that fun church feeling to people.Ahead of Brighter Days‘ late-May release, Robert Randolph & The Family Band have shared their forthcoming album’s lead single, “Second Hand Man”. The new track is layered with elements of classic soul, funk, rock, and blues, highlighted by some electric work by Randolph on the pedal steel.

Students attend Bernie Sanders rally

first_imgKatie Galioto | The Observer Supporters wave signs for Bernie Sanders at his rally Sunday. More than 4,000 people attended the event at the Century Center in South Bend.Sanders said Sunday marked the one-year anniversary of his presidential campaign and commented on its progress — as of today, he has won 17 caucuses and primaries.The Vermont senator said his campaign has done better in states with high voter turnouts and stressed that Tuesday’s primary is “very important” for the Democratic Party.“I hope all of you will help make next Tuesday the biggest voter turnout in Indiana Democratic primary history,” he said. “And I hope very much that Indiana will join states throughout this country in the understanding that we need a political revolution.”Notre Dame senior Connor Hayes, who watched the rally from the overflow room, said there was “a surprising amount of energy” at the event.“The Democratic contest is winding down. It’s pretty clear it’s borderline impossible for him to win the nomination at this point,” he said. “ … And I think that was the coolest thing about it — how excited people were about this candidate whose purpose at this point is shifting the Democratic Party left, not actually winning the nomination.”Max Ujdak, a Notre Dame sophomore and South Bend native, said he carved time out of his finals week study schedule for the “once-in-a-lifetime chance” to attend a Sanders rally.“[The Indiana primary] sometimes matters, it sometimes doesn’t matter,” he said. “This year it actually does, so it’s kind of interesting because it’s really late in the game.” The thousands of people gathered in South Bend’s Century Center on Sunday night could “feel the Bern,” according to Notre Dame sophomore Casey Kennedy.“Really — the room was so hot, I felt like I was going to pass out,” she said.An overflow crowd of more than 4,000 people attended a Bernie Sanders rally to hear the Democratic presidential candidate speak, just two days before the Indiana primary elections. Katie Galioto | The Observer Sanders gives his stump speech at a rally Sunday night, just two days before the Indiana primary elections.The crowd was five or six times larger than the audience at Thursday’s Ted Cruz rally in the same venue, Notre Dame senior Daniel Passon said, and consisted of a more diverse crowd in terms of race, age and socioeconomic status.“While those in attendance rarely clapped or were engaged in what was going on during the Cruz event, the audience today responded overwhelmingly to Sen. Sanders’ stump speech and were fully and joyfully engaged in what they clearly saw as a moment in a political revolution,” he said.Saint Mary’s first-year Courtney Buckley, who volunteers for the Sanders campaign, said the campaign is rooted in values that were reflected at the rally. For example, when making calls volunteers are told not to argue with voters.“The campaign is founded on spreading peace, and only peace,” she said.Sanders discussed a wide array of issues in his stump speech — including income and wealth inequality, healthcare, education and criminal justice reform.“I think one of the coolest things about Bernie is he’s really engaging a lot of the people who tend to feel like they don’t really have a voice, especially when it comes to politics — because he talks about a lot of really tangible things that affect day-to-day experience and really matter to people who aren’t in places of power or wealth,” Notre Dame sophomore Mary Shea Kelly-Buckley said.Passon, who waited in line for almost six hours for the rally, said in addition to promising free college tuition, Sanders also emphasized some of his lesser-known platform points, such as reparative justice for Native Americans.The senator talked little about winning the nomination, Passon said, instead promoting his “political revolution” that “entails shifting the language of discourse to focus on the celebration of, and respect for, human dignity in the world.”Kennedy, a Sanders supporter, said she thought the senator was an engaging speaker, particularly for local individuals who might feel politically ostracized.“I think there was a lot of passion and that was definitely mixed, in part, with frustration and anger because a lot of the people in the Northern Indiana area and in South Bend are very personally affected by a lot of the issues that Bernie really cares about,” she said.In light of recent losses in other states, Hayes said he came to the rally to see what Sanders had to say about Democratic opponent Hilary Clinton.“I was kind of intrigued by how little he actually critiqued Secretary Clinton’s policies and really just kind of stuck to the broad generalizations that got him popular in the first place,” he said.Although she supports Sanders, Saint Mary’s first-year Adriana Fazio said she sees value in attending rallies for any of the presidential candidates.“I think most of them are very educational,” she said. “It’s just a great way to get informed even if it’s a crowd that’s not your own.”However, first-year Maeve McMahon said she would not feel particularly safe going to the rally for Republican frontrunner Donald Trump at Century Center on Monday.“I would love to hear [Trump] speak, to hear first hand what he has to say, regardless of how strongly I disagree with it,” she said. “If you look at the crowd here, I’ve experienced nothing but amicable relationships, and I don’t think I would find that at the Trump rally.”Even if he does not win the nomination, Fazio said she thinks Sanders has influenced modern political ideologies in both parties.“All of a sudden, free college and environmental protection and so many other things are on the agenda for everyone, regardless of what you think about them,” she said.Passon said he wants to attend the rallies of all candidates who come through South Bend to become a more informed voter and participate in a primary season that “will show up in my children’s history books.”“If the United States ever joins the rest of the world in realizing true pro-family policies like permitting working parents to spend time with their newborn children and allowing mothers and fathers to earn a living wage, this election — because of Bernie Sanders — will be remembered as the shift in discourse that made that possible,” he said.Tags: 2016 Election, Bernie Sanders, Bernie Sanders primary, Democrat, Indiana primarylast_img read more
