August 3, 2012 HMAS Darwin Exercises Complex Ship, Air Launched Torpedo Delivery HMAS Darwin has successfully exercised complex ship and air launched torpedo delivery during the multinational maritime exercise RIMPAC 2012.Firing one MK46 torpedo from Darwin and two Mk46 torpedos from embarked S-70B-2 Seahawk “Valkyrie”, Darwin demonstrated a combined ability to detect and counter a simulated submarine contact.The seven-metre, 2700 pound MK-30 Mod 1 target, is a fully programmable underwater vehicle which simulates characteristics of a modern submarine.Two serials also involved a Canadian CH-124 Sea King from Her Majesty’s Canadian Ship Algonquin, as well as air support from the United States and Japan.Leading Seaman Combat Systems Operator Nicholas Miller who launched Darwin’s torpedo, said it was a career highlight.“I was on HMAS Newcastle during RIMPAC 2010 when they successfully launched a torpedo and thought that it would be the only time I would be involved,” LS Miller said.“Returning again and being actually able to fire the torpedo, for me was a privilege. I was both excited and relieved that it was a success – all the training and hard work for the team involved in the process paid off.”Tactical Coordinator for Valkyrie Sub Lieutenant Tim Craig, also conducted a career first when he released the Mk46 torpedo from the helicopter.“Conducting a simulated ASW (anti-submarine warfare) battle was a great experience to practise our core business,” Sub Lieutenant Craig said.“Because we are an ASW squadron, RIMPAC provided us with a chance to practise our proficiencies in weapon delivery, in a layered attack with contribution from multiple partners. It was an awesome experience.”Commanding Officer of HMAS Darwin, Commander Brian Schlegel, who also commanded and coordinated the anti-submarine warfare (ASW) serial for two ships and five aircraft, said it highlighted the professionalism and capability of Darwin’s personnel to work effectively with our partners.“This was a significant achievement for the crew of HMAS Darwin, we achieved our objective of three torpedo engagements with successful results,” Commander Schlegel said.“The serials highlighted great teamwork – our people ensured the safe undertaking of weapons delivery, effective communication, coordination of procedures for both the helicopter and the ship launches, all while working with our coalition partners Canada, Japan and the United States.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, August 3, 2012; Image: Australian Navy Share this article View post tag: HMAS View post tag: air View post tag: Naval View post tag: Exercises Back to overview,Home naval-today HMAS Darwin Exercises Complex Ship, Air Launched Torpedo Delivery View post tag: Complex Training & Education View post tag: launched View post tag: DELIVERY View post tag: Navy View post tag: Darwin View post tag: ship View post tag: News by topic View post tag: Torpedo
continue reading » Understanding and managing the risks associated with the changing world of data security, and being prepared for breaches and how to respond, have become business necessities. This three-part series, based in part on a presentation given by Michele L. Cohen, a principal with the law firm Miles & Stockbridge P.C. at Trellance’s immersion 2018 conference, outlines the balancing act between convenience and data, and provides a framework for preparing for breaches and what actions to take in response. Part 1 focused on what is at risk; what causes breaches, and the fact that breaches are inevitable. Part 2 focused on planning and preparing documentation for the inevitable. This Part 3, will explore three areas that require special attention: the legal considerations regarding breach notification; the contracts an organization has with vendors who have access to data; and having the right insurance coverage.The popular ride-sharing app Uber disclosed in November 2017 that hackers had stolen 57 million driver and rider accounts. What was more disconcerting was that the company had kept the data breach secret for more than a year after paying a $100,000 ransom. According to Stateline magazine:The state of Pennsylvania sued Uber for waiting more than a year to alert drivers and customers that their personal information had been hacked; the state’s attorney general argued that the ride-hailing company had violated a state law mandating that companies notify people affected by a data breach ‘without unreasonable delay’. Suits were also filed against Uber by Los Angeles and Chicago for violating their laws that defines how quickly consumers must be notified once a data breach is discovered. Pennsylvania’s phrase “without unreasonable delay” is typical of many states, as is “in the most expedient time possible”. 1SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr
Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Ben Klick, Stark CountyAs long as everything goes as planned, today will be our last day of harvest. I have 55 acres of beans to cut and we are done. We are beyond ready for it to be done. It has been a roller coaster of a year and a downhill roller coaster of a fall. We are not that upset with how the yields turned out after the weather we had but there have been little issues with things going wrong along the way and we are definitely ready to be done.Planting date was very crucial this year. The later crops were not nearly as dry and that was a lot more money in drying costs. There was quite a bit of re-adjusting the machine from the early corn to the late-planted corn and it slowed down the harvest.The double-crop beans needed August and September rains that they didn’t get. The yields were all over the place. They got planted later than they should have been and it got dry for them at the wrong time. This year they weren’t really worth cutting.The corn yields really varied by farm and soil type. We planted some fields that we should have waited a day or two longer last spring but we had to plant when we could. As a young farmer I see things I get stressed about but then my dad tells me that he has been seeing these kinds of things for years.The ground is not as favorable as I thought it would be but we are getting the weather so we can start the fall jobs that we should have been doing a month ago. We have chicken litter to spread, lime to spread and barns to clean out.We usually shoot to be done two weeks before Thanksgiving, and here we are still working at harvest the week after Thanksgiving, but we were still blessed with a pretty good harvest and nothing disastrous went wrong. It is what it is.For the rest of this week’s reports, click here.

The Himachal Pradesh Assembly passed a Bill on Friday against conversion by force, inducement or through marriages solemnised for the “sole purpose” of adopting a new religion. The Opposition supported the Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Bill, 2019, which was passed unanimously with a voice vote. Replying to the discussion, Chief Minister Jai Ram Thakur said a new stringent legislation was required as “forced conversion”, especially in Rampur and Kinnaur, was “on the rise.”The Bill seeks to repeal the Himachal Pradesh Freedom of Religion Act, 2006, which is on similar lines. The new Bill proposes stringent punishments — up to seven years in jail compared to the three years under the existing law.The Bill prohibits conversion by misrepresentation, force, undue influence, coercion, inducement, marriage or any fraudulent means. Any marriage for the sole purpose of conversion will also be declared null and void under Section 5 of the Bill. While participating in the discussion on the Bill, Congress legislators Asha Kumari, Sukhvinder Sukhu, Jagat Singh Negi and lone CPI(M) MLA Rakesh Singha sought changes in some clauses. Answering Mr. Sukhu’s suggestion, Mr. Thakur said the 13-year old act was not so effective. The government decided to bring a new legislation instead of amending the already-existing Act as it has only eight sections and it would have not better to add about 10 more sections to it, the chief minister said.As per the Bill, anyone seeking to convert will need to give a month’s notice to the district magistrate, stating that the person is converting on his/her own. The provision figured in the 2006 law as well and was challenged in court. The priest who performs conversion ceremony will also give a month’s notice in advance. Those reconverting to their “parent religion” are exempted from this provision. Replying to Mr. Negi’s suggestion, the chief minister said everyone was worried about untouchability, but provisions in the Constitution against untouchability were already there. According to the new Bill, if Dalits, women or minors were made to convert, the jail term will be between two-seven years. Law Minister Suresh Bhardwaj, Rakesh Pathania and Rakesh Jamwal from the treasury bench also participated in the discussion. Section 10 of the Bill states that no person or organisation violating the provisions will be allowed to accept any donation or contribution of any kind from within or outside the country. The Bill will become an Act after its notification following assent by the Governor.

KNOXVILLE, TN – FEBRUARY 27: J.P. Prince #30 of the Tennessee Volunteers dunks the basketball against Eric Bledsoe #24 of the Kentucky Wildcats at Thompson-Boling Arena on February 27, 2010 in Knoxville, Tennessee. Tennessee defeated Kentucky 74-65. (Photo by Joe Robbins/Getty Images)It is no secret that Memphis (Tenn.) University School offensive tackle and Ole Miss commit Drew Richmond is major target for Tennessee. The Vols are hosting Richmond on his final official visit before signing day on Wednesday, and the student body at today’s Auburn-Tennessee basketball game was well aware of Richmond’s presence. Here’s a Vine of the UT students chanting for the big-time recruit:Tennessee head coach Butch Jones is going all out for Richmond’s visit, personally hosting the prospect himself over the weekend. Jones not-so subtly attempted to get the student section to up its intensity as he and Richmond walked by.Five-star treatment for a five-star prospect. If Richmond doesn’t end up flipping to the Vols this week, it won’t be for lack of trying on Tennessee’s part. [ RockyTopInsider ]
Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh has been getting some high-profile special guests on campus in Ann Arbor lately. The latest visitor? Detroit Lions star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, who checked out Schembechler Hall today. Great having @NdamukongSuh visit Schembechler Hall this morning! pic.twitter.com/999QaMNogR— Michigan Football (@umichfootball) February 19, 2015Suh played college football at Nebraska, but his presence is another win for Harbaugh. Since taking over the reins of his alma mater, Harbaugh has made good use of his NFL credentials, and having all these household names on campus can only help sell the program in recruiting.
