Naval Forces Conclude SIFOREX

View post tag: BRAZIL Follow @navaltoday Authorities View post tag: Colombia View post tag: Naval View post tag: News by topic October 8, 2014 View post tag: Navy View post tag: Peru SIFOREX is a biennial Naval exercise that focuses on anti-submarine warfare (ASW) proficiency. Naval forces from Brazil, Colombia, Peru and the U.S participated in SIFOREX 2014.SIFOREX 2014 was hosted by the Peruvian navy, and took place in the Southern Pacific beginning September 29. The exercise immediately followed UNITAS, the U.S. Navy’s longest running multinational maritime exercise, where 14 partner nations cooperated in a vast array of maritime scenarios.This year’s U.S. participants included USS Ingraham (FFG 61), P-8 Poseidon from VP-45 and P-3 Orion from VP-26, and Commander Destroyer Squadron 40 (COMDESRON40) staff.“SIFOREX has been a great opportunity for the Sailors to operate with a live submarine,” said Senior Chief Sonar Technician-Surface Paul Dammon, of the USS Ingraham (FFG 61). “The fact that it is a diesel submarine provides an added challenge; it is not every day that my Sailors have the chance to search for and track live sub-surface contacts, especially alongside our partner nations. It has been a great opportunity to strengthen interoperability with partner nation navies.”For most of the sonar technicians on board, this was the first time they had ever worked with foreign submarines. In SIFOREX 2014, Peru engaged with three proficient diesel submarines.The ships relied on standard tactical signals to communicate with each other, as well as maritime patrol reconnaissance aircraft and helicopters to locate and track subsurface contacts.SIFOREX has been recurring since 2001. The next SIFOREX is planned for 2016.[mappress]Press Release, October 08, 2014; Image: US Navy Share this article View post tag: USlast_img read more

BRO Athletes: Chase Lyne Cycles The Harris Roubaix

first_img center_img Photo Courtesy of Ben BaileyI think I speak for everyone when I say “I’m glad spring is finally here”. Winter really wore out its welcome this year, so the recent 70 degree temperatures and blossoming flowers in Virginia have been much appreciated.With these warmer temperatures, I’ve dusted off the bikes and started gearing up for the season.If you follow road cycling, one of the historic Spring Classics went down this past weekend. No silly, not the Paris-Roubaix, the Harris-Roubaix. This incredible event put on by the Shenandoah Valley Bicycle Coalition takes place every year on the same day as the French classic, and rings in the cycling season.Pros, weekend warriors, families, and friends all gather to celebrate the gravel roads of Rockingham County and enjoy getting out on two wheels.After gathering in Court Square in the middle of downtown Harrisonburg, everyone has a gentle party pace ride of about six miles out to the farm. From here, riders embark on a 16.5 mile loop of about half gravel and half pavement. The race is three laps total, but you can do as many or as few loops as you like, the main goal is to have fun.I feel like each year this event gets harder and harder, especially this year with the likes of Jeremiah Bishop, Ben Frederick, Nick Waite, Andy Rhodes, and other immortals drilling it at the front. Couple that with super technical gravel roads, and things can get dicey. I managed to keep touch with the front group for about 3/4’s of the first lap, but then started sliding back and linked up with my buddy Kyle to work together.Unfortunately, bad luck struck. My left contact blew out of my eye, which is problematic considering I am blind as a bat. I stuck on Kyle’s wheel trying to regain my depth perception and was just trying to make it back to the start where I could throw in a new contact.Pffffffff…..Due to my impaired vision I took the most amateur hour line through some gnarly gravel and flatted my rear tire. Peace Kyle. I quickly threw in a new tube and tried to get going again, knowing at this point results were out the window.Pfffffff…..GAH! In my haste I didn’t pump my rear tire up enough and got another flat tire. After another quick repair, I limped my way back into the race start. Fortunately there were a few other riders who had similar luck, and four of us headed out for another lap.Knowing at this point we all were just riding for fun, we focused on enjoying the amazing weather and dirt roads. In reality, this is what it’s all about anyways. Sure, being at the front and mixing it up is always a blast, but it’s not like my day was ruined with a few flats. We passed other cyclists out on the course enjoying their ride and saw so many different bikes, such as custom steel rides, fat bikes, mountain bikeswith trail-behinds for the kids, and more.At the heart of every sport are the people, and cycling is no different. After my second lap I called it quits and relaxed enjoying some craft brews and food from the potluck with my friends. People were trading stories on their ride, laughing about flat tires, sharing race tactics; the excitement over the start of the cycling season was truly palpable.The front riders came in after their third lap, with Jeremiah Bishop taking the win, followed by Adam Williams, Ben Frederick, Andy Rhodes, Danny Gibney, and Collin Vento for the top six. Solid riders who put it all out there!Roubaix 2016!last_img read more

CFPB officially rescinds arbitration rule

first_imgThe CFPB today published its action in the Federal Register to remove the bureau’s final arbitration rule from the federal code, effective immediately. The notice comes after President Donald Trump signed a congressional joint resolution disapproving of the rule earlier this month.Released in July, the CFPB’s final arbitration rule would have prohibited the use of clauses that prevent consumers from entering into class action litigation, so-called “class action waivers.”Under the Congressional Review Act, legislators can vote to overrule new federal regulations with a joint resolution of disapproval within 60 legislative days after regulators have submitted the rule to Congress. The House passed the resolution disapproving of the arbitration rule in July, and the Senate passed the resolution at the end of October. continue reading » 10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more
