News story: Britain and France Sign Agreement for Test Pilot Exchange

first_img France is one of our most important allies and this agreement symbolises the importance of deep defence and security relationships. By participating in this exchange programme, we will strengthen understanding between our personnel. We are the only two European powers willing and able to deploy and sustain significant military power and we will continue to work towards a special partnership for the future. Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson and French Minister of the Armed Forces Mme Florence Parly today (17 May) held the first Defence Ministerial Council since the announcement of a permanent and regular forum for the discussion of UK-France defence cooperation in January 2018. During the meeting a bespoke technical arrangement which will oversee the exchange of test pilots between the two nations was signed.The agreement formalises an exchange enabling French pilots to train at the UK Empire Test Pilots’ School based at MOD Boscombe Down, and British pilots to train at the French Test Pilots’ School, Ecole du Personnel Navigant d’Essais et de Reception based on the Istres Le Tube Airbase. This reciprocal exchange of personnel ensures that the skills of military flight test, analysis and capability enhancement are shared between the Armed Forces of UK and France, further strengthening the UK’s relationship with France and building on the strong partnership between our armed forces.Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson said: The UK and France have also successfully carried out the second development firing of the Sea Venom missile which will equip the Royal Navy and French Navy helicopters to prosecute a wide range of surface threats, from fast inshore attack craft up to corvette-sized vessels, including in coastal environments. Sea Venom has both ‘fire and forget’ mode as well as a ‘man in the loop’ capability, which allows full missile control until target impact.French and British Armed Forces operate alongside each other in NATO, including as part of the enhanced Forward Presence (eFP) in Estonia. The UK and France have been fighting Daesh together in Iraq and Syria, and last month launched coordinated strikes against Syrian regime chemical weapons stocks. The UK and French navies work together around the globe to uphold freedom of navigation and the laws of the sea, with UK personnel currently taking part in France’s Jeanne d’Arc naval deployment to the Asia-Pacific region, and are building on work last year to increase coordination of hurricane relief efforts in the Caribbean.We are also developing cutting-edge defence capability projects together and deepening links across our Armed Forces, vital actions as both the UK’s National Security Capability Review and last year’s French Strategic Review of Defence and National Security described a world of rising instability and unpredictability – which is why we are conducting the Modernising Defence Programme to make sure we are configured to address the intensifying and complex threats that we are our allies now face.last_img read more


The Main Squeeze Performs “Return Of The Mack” With Vulfpeck’s Antwaun Stanley At Fool’s Paradise

Securing the Mobile Enterprise

first_imgWe are seeing a fundamental shift in the way IT is consumed, and subsequently secured, and it’s mostly driven by mobile. The recent SBIC report, “Realizing the Mobile Enterprise: Balancing the Risks and Rewards of Consumer Devices,” highlights these shifts.“A huge benefit of mobile devices is the user interface… This is simply how people want to interact with IT systems nowadays…” –Dr. Martijn Dekker (SVP, CISO, ABN Amro)There are a number of trends around mobility that make it a distinctly different and new security challenge to consider:BYOD: The fact that devices are personally owned or treated as such has serious implications. Many enterprises are struggling to get users to install Mobile Device Management (MDM) software on their devices, let alone deeper agents like anti-virus or malware forensics. In addition to the lost endpoint control, BYOD also creates a problem about when and how enterprise policy is applied. The fact that I carry my phone all day everyday means that a large percentage of the time it will be used is for personal reasons. This forces enterprises to think about applying security policy sparingly.Off Network: Network visibility is a drug to security teams. It’s needed more than anything else to understand what users are doing and when they are doing it. Unfortunately, in the mobile world, enterprise networks don’t have to be touched all that often. As soon as the data gets to the device – you’ve lost visibility from a network perspective (picture a sensitive piece of content being uploaded to Dropbox from a mobile device).“Chatty” Interaction Model: Mobile users have very frequent context shifts between work and play. The Blackberry changed the way email is consumed. It gave quick access to email and calendar without the need for VPN. Android brought in more play to these devices and what we are left with is a consistent flip between work/play throughout the day. Constant switching does not provide good areas for strong authentication and blurs the line as to when enterprise security policy should be applied.Web/Federated Access Model: More and more cloud services are being used for enterprise purposes (Google Apps, Salesforce, Box, Office 365, etc.), and each of them make use of web-based authentication standards. As enterprise app development evolves, more and more things will be developed in the mindset of “mobile first.” This will push more traditional enterprise authentication and identity management into a web standards world.Fundamentally, you still need to secure data and identities, and get threat visibility, but you need to do it while working within these trends. The SBIC report calls out the need for MDM, but cautions against over reliance on it as a security solution. The overall mobile market is maturing beyond just MDM into application and data management. Strong authentication methods, especially those that rely on risk-based methodology, as well as data security and threat forensics will be layered on top of these infrastructure components to create a true mobile security stack that can take much of the mystery out of BYOD.last_img read more


Local Manufacturer Takes Steps To Protect Workers From Virus Exposure

first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window),I work there, there aren’t any protective measures at all other than a ply wood quarantine room. All doors entering the plant do not have hand sanitization areas, central core which is like a small vending area where hundreds of people touch food products, chairs, and a touch screen for purchasing food is only cleaned once a night. Do not be fooled by the illusions of Cummins. The only employees they are “protecting” are the useless management teams who are working from home, as for everyone on the floor working directly next to one another well good luck to them because apparently production means more than employee health and well being.,Please make suggestions to your manager. I am not sure what measures you are expecting.,Cummins is not an essential business; therefore should have to shut down like everyone else. They have way to many people on one area, as well as deliveries coming in and out all day from all over! It’s not right! There working families NEED to be a priority!!!,Our plant is like a ghost town in the offices they are all working from home, parking is a breeze though. But the hourly workers are forced to stand in line so as to heard through one entrance to be asked three ridiculous questions so much for social distancing! We have several employees that are home under quarantine that worked side by side with us. In a meeting we were told we would be given time off if there were any instances of corona virus, well the company lied and now they are telling us the country needs us and we have a civic duty to keep the plant running. Corporate greed don’t you think?,@Doug is definitely a cop. I bet you read all the terms and conditions on every website you come across and kiss your father on the mouth as a grown adult. For real though Doug, how do you benefit from supporting corporate greed over being humane to employees who bust their ass for that company day after day? Not sure what you gain punishing the little guys by siding with the big ones. Pretty sure Diesel engines that won’t even go in chassis for months can wait until after the pandemic calms down and the paranoia has subsided. I hope you’re at least one of the big wigs who makes some sort of portion of this greed, and not just a 90-percenter who still thinks the 1% gives a damn about you.But rock on, Doug. Hope you’re never put in the same position as these guys.,How many N95 respiratory masks are being made available to Jamestown employees. If Cummins is helping build emergency needed engines are they donating them to emergency areas? Can a list of these emergency areas be published so Chautauqua county residents can know what help we are giving the world due this crisis? Definitely would like to see credit given for the great sacrifices being made. WNY News Now File Image.LAKEWOOD – One of Chautauqua County’s largest manufacturing plants is taking steps to protect its workers from novel Coronavirus exposure.Cummins Engine Plant, in a post on the company’s website, says they are working to implement internal health and safety policies to protect their employees.“Our highest priority is the health and safety of our employees,” the company said in the post.  “Employees in many impacted areas are working from home in those functions where this can be accomplished.”The company says they are providing protective wear and disinfection supplies for employees working on-site, and ensuring the sanitation and disinfection of Cummins facilities regularly. Furthermore, Cummins says they currently have region-specific travel bans in place as well as a global travel restriction. Visits by external parties such as customers and suppliers to Cummins facilities may be limited.“We continue to assess these policies as conditions evolve to ensure the health and safety of our employees,” the company says.Recently, the company provided more than 500,000 protective masks to Cummins employees in China during the virus outbreak.last_img read more


24 Veggie diseases

first_imgVolume XXXIIINumber 1Page 24 Georgia has a lot of vegetable diseases that can steal away bountiful harvests. But it’s not impossible for home gardeners to keep some of these diseases in check.The first step is to scout your garden regularly, especially when conditions are wet and warm. During these times, vegetable plants are more susceptible to diseases caused by fungi and bacteria, said David Langston, a vegetable plant pathologist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension.Nematode damage is more evident, though, when the garden is dry. You can test your soil for nematodes by submitting a sample through your local UGA Extension office.Viral diseases can show up anytime, Langston said.Many plant diseases can be on or within the seeds. Because you can’t distinguish healthy seeds from diseased ones, buy seeds from a reputable dealer. Make sure you follow directions on when and how to plant them. “Seeds should not be saved from year to year,” Langston said. “This is important to prevent a number of diseases.”Using varieties that are resistant to plant diseases is the best way to avoid disease losses. The types of disease resistance for each variety are noted on the seed container or in a seed catalog.Langston has a few more tips to help keep your garden disease-free.1. Don’t plant your garden near or beneath trees. The shade will reduce the drying of plant foliage after rain and increase the chances of diseases. Besides, vegetables like a lot of sunlight, and the trees will compete for vital nutrients.2. Rotate your crops. Grow the same or closely related vegetable plants in the same soil only once every three to five years, Langston said. This practice starves out most pathogens that cause stem and leaf diseases. Vegetable families include:• Alliaceae (chives, garlic, leeks and onions)• Apiaceae (carrots)• Asteraceae (lettuce)• Brassicaceae (broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, collards, mustard, radishes, rutabagas and turnips)• Chenopodiaceae (spinach)• Cucurbitaceae (cantaloupes, cucumbers, honeydew melons, pumpkins, squash and watermelons)• Fabaceae (all beans, English peas and Southern peas)• Malvaceae (okra)• Poaceae (corn)• Solanaceae (eggplant, peppers, potatoes and tomatoes)3. Plant a few rows of a crop like rye or corn around your main garden. This will tempt insects to feed there first, reducing the risk of diseases some small insects are known to carry.4. When you water the garden, don’t splash soil onto plant foliage. If possible, run the water between the rows. Use a mulch layer of straw, bark, shredded paper or plastic to keep soil from splashing onto plants and keep fruit from touching bare ground.5. If you use tobacco, wash your hands thoroughly before handling plants. This will prevent the spread of tobacco mosaic virus, which can infect many kinds of vegetables, particularly tomatoes and peppers.6. After harvest, remove and destroy all plants from the garden and sanitize your garden equipment. This will reduce the overwintering of disease-causing organisms.

Colombia Destroys Crystallization Workshops for Cocaine Production

first_img Colombian National Navy units located and destroyed two crystallization workshops in the department of Nariño (west) with the capacity to produce approximately four tons of cocaine hydrochloride and house 15 people. The crystallization workshops were found by units of the Anti-Drug-Trafficking Task Force in San Sebastián, a rural area in the municipality of Salahonda, Nariño department, Colombia. In the structures, 6,325 kilos of solid raw materials were found and destroyed, including chopped coca leaves, lime, lye, and sodium hypochlorite, along with 1,165 gallons of liquids, such as gasoline and sulfuric acid. Scales, hydraulic presses, electric pumps, generators, communications equipment, and tools used to process cocaine were also found. So far this year, the Pacific Naval Force has located and destroyed 84 structures, including crystallization workshops, laboratories, and rustic kitchens for the production of the alkaloid.

Judge Allawas reprimanded

first_img August 1, 2005 Regular News Judge Allawas reprimanded Cited for long delays in issuing rulings in 12 cases The Florida Supreme Court has disciplined 18th Circuit Court Judge Meryl L. Allawas for not expeditiously issuing rulings in a dozen cases, including one where over a year and a half elapsed between the final hearing and the ruling.Acting June 30 in case no. SC04-1320, the court accepted a stipulation entered into between Judge Allawas and the Judicial Qualifications Commission calling for the judge to be publicly reprimanded.Judge Allawas acknowledged that the lengthy delays in the 12 cases were both “significant and unreasonable and certainly adversely impacted the parties” and that her conduct “reflected poorly upon her, the judiciary, and the legal system.” So too did her efforts in several cases to negotiate with the parties by offering to fulfill her judicial responsibilities in exchange for waivers of the prejudice the parties suffered because of her inaction, the court said.In recommending a public reprimand as a suitable penalty, the JQC said it took into account various mitigating circumstances, including that Judge Allawas had no prior disciplinary history and was a relatively new judge without significant prior civil experience. The JQC also said during the relevant period Allawas experienced “protracted staffing problems” and “significant personal family issues.” Judge Allawas reprimandedlast_img read more
