The announcement was made by Adm. Jonathan Greenert, Chief of Naval Operations, May 17.The Arleigh Burke Fleet Trophy, named after the famous destroyer squadron commander and former chief of naval operations (1955-61), is presented annually to the ship or aviation squadron in both the Atlantic and Pacific Fleets that has achieved the greatest improvement during the previous year based on the Battle Efficiency Competition. The competition encompasses operational readiness, inspections, and retention.Greenert stressed that ‘the performance of Hartford consistently and measurably improved in every warfare area and achieved on-time certification for one of COMSUBFOR’s most challenging deployments.’Fast-attack submarines conduct multifaceted missions. They use their stealth, persistence, agility and firepower to deploy and support special force operations, disrupt and destroy an adversary’s military and economic operations at sea, provide early strike capabilities from close proximity and ensure undersea superiority.Cmdr. Steve Wilkinson, commanding officer, was pleased with the hard work and dedication of the crew.“This award is about deckplate leadership. It is easy to win the World Series when you are given an all-star team,” said Wilkinson.Vice Adm. Michael Connor, Commander, Submarine Force Atlantic praised the Hartford’s commanding officer and crew for earning this prestigious award.“… congratulations to you and your crew for earning the 2012 Atlantic Fleet Arleigh Burke Fleet Trophy,” said Connor. “Hartford’s selection is a testament to your team’s outstanding professionalism, hard work and unrelenting commitment to the highest standards. You set the bar high, and your accomplishments are the result of your persistent initiative and the solid leadership of your wardroom and chief’s quarters.”Hartford returned to Naval Submarine Base New London from the European Command Area of Responsibility, Nov. 17, 2012. During the deployment, Hartford executed the nation’s maritime strategy in supporting national security interests and maritime security operations.Rear Adm. Ken Perry, Commander, Submarine Group 2 also acknowledged the Hartford crew for earning the 2012 Atlantic Fleet Arleigh Burke Fleet trophy.“Hartford’s selection showcases your determination and relentless pursuit of excellence,” said Perry. “Congratulations to your entire crew for displaying outstanding leadership and daily commitment to steady full-spectrum improvement. The Arleigh Burke trophy was possible through your persistent and positive influence and dedication to the highest standards of our Navy.”The USS Hartford, commissioned Dec. 10, 1994, is the second U.S. naval vessel to be named in honor of the city of Hartford.[mappress]Press Release, May 27, 2013; Image: US Navy View post tag: Defense May 27, 2013 View post tag: Defence View post tag: Trophy View post tag: Navy Share this articlelast_img read more

IGD predicts online shopping surge

first_imgUp to 42% of British shoppers could be converted to online grocery shopping, according to food and grocery research and training charity IGD.The organisation predicted that online would be the UK grocery market’s fastest growing sector, growing in value from £8.9bn to £17.2bn between April 2015 and April 2020. The prediction is supported by new Kantar Worldpanel figures showing a 9.8% growth in online grocery sales in the 12 weeks ending 11 October, 2015.According to IGD ShopperVista Data, 26% of people already class themselves as regular online shoppers and 11% say the internet is where they do most of their shopping. However, 33% describe themselves as lapsed online grocery shoppers, with 28% of those not having shopped online in the last two years.Ben Miller, IGD’s director of retail insight, said: “Online is still on a rapid growth curve, as people make the most of new devices, lower delivery charges and minimum spends, plus greater access to click and collect points.”ConvertedHe added that those who had lapsed from online shopping or had never tried it declared they could be converted by lower delivery charges, a better selection of products and improved order accuracy.The data also found 80% of online shoppers carry out their ‘big shop’ online and are 4% more likely to stick to one retailer, with 54% saying they were always loyal.Miller said: “Clearly, once shoppers have trialled online, many then use it as their main form of grocery shopping, demonstrating growing levels of convenience and loyalty.“Online offers a great opportunity for retailers to really encourage loyalty, with the rise of delivery saver passes, preferential delivery slots and money-off incentives all extremely appealing to shoppers.”last_img read more

Lauding journalism’s ‘watchdog role’

first_img“All governments lie.” That was the stark observation that Ann Marie Lipinski, curator of the Nieman Foundation for Journalism at Harvard, opened with on Thursday, quoting crusading muckraker I.F. Stone from more than 40 years before.She was addressing a packed Tsai Auditorium audience, gathered for the presentation of the I.F. Stone Medal for Journalistic Independence to documentary filmmaker Laura Poitras, as well as the first I.F. Stone Lifetime Achievement Award to broadcast journalist Amy Goodman. Both awards celebrate Stone’s belief in what Lipinski, quoting Stone again, called “the watchdog role of journalism.”A visual artist and journalist, Poitras has created a documentary film trilogy about post-9/11 America that culminated with “Citizenfour” about document leaker Edward Snowden and National Security Agency surveillance. Working with journalist Glenn Greenwald, she interviewed Snowden in Hong Kong and helped make public his disclosures about governmental monitoring of citizens. “Citizenfour” has been nominated for an Oscar in the documentary feature category.Broadcast journalist Amy Goodman received the first I.F. Stone Lifetime Achievement Award. “I see the media as a huge kitchen table that we sit around and debate and discuss the issues of the day. To do less,” Goodman concluded, “is a disservice to democracy.” Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerThe I.F. Stone Medal, created in 2008, is presented annually to a journalist whose work captures the spirit of journalistic independence, integrity, and courage that characterized I.F. Stone’s Weekly, which published from 1953 to 1971.Goodman is the host and executive producer of “Democracy Now!,” a daily news program that airs on more than 1,300 radio stations worldwide. Since founding the program 19 years ago, Goodman has broken such global stories as the massacre of East Timorese by the Indonesian Army, focusing on alternative — and often unheard — voices.Accepting her award, Goodman discussed the importance of reporting by talking to citizens, rather than to corporate or government spokespeople. “When you hear someone speaking from their own experience, whether it is a Palestinian child or an Israeli grandmother, an uncle in Iraq or an aunt in Afghanistan, it challenges stereotypes,” she said. “You begin to understand where they are coming from.”Stressing the participatory nature of journalism, she talked about the shared responsibility of the media and the public. “I see the media as a huge kitchen table that we sit around and debate and discuss the issues of the day. To do less,” she concluded, “is a disservice to democracy.”The presentation was followed by a brief panel discussion, moderated by Tom Ashbrook, host of NPR’s “On Point” and a former Nieman Fellow. Stephanie Mitchell/Harvard Staff PhotographerA largely visual artist, Poitras chose to illustrate her acceptance with clips from “Citizenfour.” These focused on how Snowden reached out to her because of her previous documentary work, how she partnered with Greenwald and others, and finally how government forces in Europe and the United States have attempted to squelch their work. Her goals, she explained, are twofold. Using “visual journalism” to document how this nation has changed since Sept. 11, 2001, she has sought “to create a primary document — to record history — and then to try to bridge the gap, combine what we know with what we feel.”“We’ve entered a moral vacuum in the post-9/11 era,” said Poitras, citing not only the widespread NSA surveillance but also the detainments of terrorism suspects at Guantanamo and other abrogations of civil liberties. With her work, she is fulfilling a responsibility “to respond to that moral vacuum,” she said. “To say something.”The presentation was followed by a brief panel discussion, moderated by Tom Ashbrook, host of NPR’s “On Point” and a former Nieman Fellow. Questions ranged from speculation about Snowden’s future (he has applied for asylum in dozens of countries, said Poitras) to the role of the public.“As citizens, there are certain things we’re obligated to speak out against,” Poitras responded, while Goodman brought up the case against Julian Assange. “He laid the groundwork for Snowden, and he has clearly risked his freedom,” she said, pointing out that he remains “holed up” in the Ecuadorean embassy in London, where he has received asylum.Ultimately, talk returned to the role of journalism and the prizewinners’ future plans. “Our job is to go to where the silence is,” concluded Goodman, “to show what is happening on the ground.”last_img read more

Doctoral student researches history of Catholicism, American liberalism at Vatican archives

first_imgBetween study sessions, doctoral candidate Susanna De Stradis takes breaks at a small, private courtyard cafe of the Vatican Apostolic Archive to drink coffee, meet other scholars and “zoom back to the present day.”De Stradis recently started conducting research into the Vatican’s archives for her dissertation during her third year as a doctoral student of history at Notre Dame. Her investigation explores the relationship between Catholicism and principles of American liberalism like religious freedom and the separation of church and state.Her studies focus primarily on Vatican perspectives on post-war Catholicism in the United States, that is, between the end of World War II and the Second Vatican Council.During that time, the Church is learning to deal with American democracy through a closer, geopolitical relation with the United States, De Stradis said.“But also, the United States is rethinking the terms of its own First Amendment and what it implies, both in the courts, but also in Congress,” De Stradis said.The archives open at 8:30 a.m. every day. Whenever she goes to the Vatican, De Stradis arrives at the Porta Sant’Anna around 9 or 9:30 a.m. and shows her entrance badge to the Swiss guards. Then, she passes through a metal detector and heads to the archive; before entering, she leaves her belongings in a locker — even her phone.“It’s not a normal Hesburgh Library-type thing, obviously,” she said.There is no signal inside the Vatican Archive and no photos are allowed, anyway. “This slows the process quite a bit,” De Stradis added, “but it also forces you to really think critically about what you’re seeing on the spot.”Her research is being funded by a Peter R. D’Agostino research travel grant through the Cushwa Center for the Study of American Catholicism and the Center for Italian Studies, as well as by a “Religion, Spirituality and Democratic Renewal” fellowship from the Social Science Research Council.De Stradis initially became interested in the historical tensions between the United States and Catholicism when she studied history as an undergraduate student at the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa and as a Master of Arts student at the University of Pisa.“As I started to delve deeper into this kind of history, I realized there had been frictions between the Vatican and the United States, something that I was not necessarily aware of before I entered college,” she said.She called her particular interest an “exotic topic to pursue” in Italy, but not so much in the United States where she was told even sociologists, political scientists and lawyers would be interested in the questions she wanted to ask.“I was interested in the history of American Catholicism, so Notre Dame is pretty much the best place in the world to pursue this kind of studies,” De Stradis said.In fact, she said, a book that drew her to this research topic was “Catholicism and American Freedom: A History” by John McGreevy, professor of history and De Stradis’ mentor and dissertation adviser at Notre Dame.“I lived in South Bend for three years, and now the time has come to finally go do some research — or should I say come do some research — over here, in Rome,” she said.De Stradis is originally from Apulia, the “heel of the [Italian] boot,” but she said she had not been feeling homesick before returning to her country.“I can’t say that I’ve missed Italy while I was in South Bend,” she said. “I really loved the U.S. … But Rome is sort of exceptional.” Courtesy of Susanna De Stradis Originally from Italy, Notre Dame doctoral candidate Susanna De Stradis arrived in Rome Sept. 14 to study the Vatican archives.De Stradis said her plans fell into place, time-wise, since Pope Francis opened in March 2020 the archives of Pope Pius XII’s papacy — which lasted from 1939 to 1958, when World War II took place.For doctoral students, De Stradis said, their academic credentials and a letter of recommendation are often enough to apply for and gain access to the archives.“I don’t know of anyone who has applied and has been rejected for obscure reasons,” she added.De Stradis said most documents that can be accessed through the Vatican Archive were produced or received by the central organs of the Roman Curia — the different branches of the Vatican’s central bureaucracy. Of particular interest to her, though, was the collection of the Apostolic Nunciature of the Holy See to the United States.“Every kind of communication between the American Catholic hierarchy and the Vatican had to go through the Apostolic delegate,” she said. “Since I want to look at Rome’s attitude towards mainly domestic developments in the U.S., this is the place to look at.”But the archives are not as well sorted as she expected, so “you have to rely a lot on the goodwill of the personnel there,” De Stradis said. She, for one, has been collaborating with an archivist to overcome these hurdles.“He’s basically bringing folders to me that I wouldn’t otherwise be able to locate and ask [for] through the normal system,” she said.Due to COVID-19 health and safety precautions, the archives can accommodate only 25 scholars every day in a room that would normally accommodate 60, De Stradis said. But the effects of the pandemic can be seen outside of Vatican City and throughout Rome, as well.“The city is empty,” De Stradis said. There are few tourists — particularly, very few Americans — and the subway is not crowded.She said she expects her research at the Vatican and her stay in Rome will last for at least seven months.“I do realize that I’m in a very uniquely privileged position as an Italian [and] as a graduate student who’s still able to go to the archives,” she said.De Stradis arrived in Italy on Sept. 14.“Which is exactly the date I had planned to be here, so this is not COVID-related, it’s just as planned,” she said. “Again — I feel very blessed.”Tags: American Catholicism, Rome, Vatican Archivelast_img read more

Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep. Pashinski Announce $125,000 in State Funds for Solomon Creek Flood Wall

first_img Press Release,  Weather Safety Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Wolf, Senator John Yudichak, and Representative Eddie Day Pashinski announced that the state would commit $125,000 for a temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall in Wilkes-Barre to try to prevent further erosion until a full repair can be made.“I am glad the state is able to support the temporary fix to the Solomon Creek flood wall,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “My administration will continue to monitor this situation closely and work with local and federal officials for a long-term solution to this serious issue. I want to sincerely thank Senator Yudichak, Representative Pashinski and Mayor George for their swift response and commitment to ensuring the safety of Wilkes-Barre’s citizens.”In the evening of December 9, 2016, approximately 40 feet of the Solomon Creek flood wall along Brook Street collapsed.  The immediate short term solution consists of repairing the failure location with a moment slab style wall for a distance of approximately 48’ between existing wall construction joints. This will eliminate the risk of more of the wall collapsing.“Mayor George has worked non-stop to find funding to repair the damaged Solomon Creek flood wall, and with the Governor’s release of $125,000 in state funds, we are one big step closer to addressing the long-standing problems related to Solomon Creek,” said State Senator Yudichak.“I would like to sincerely thank Gov. Wolf for his commitment to assist Sen. Yudichak and me to secure much needed funding for the Solomon Creek emergency,” said Rep. Eddie Day Pashinski. “I am pleased to announce the Gov. along with the House and Senate Appropriations staff have released $125,000 to jump start the construction necessary to protect the residents and businesses in the South Wilkes-Barre area.”Like Governor Tom Wolf on Facebook: Facebook.com/GovernorWolf Governor Wolf, Senator Yudichak, & Rep.

The Gold Coast’s best suburbs to buy an investment property

first_imgLeading the top 100 list was country town Blackwater in the Central Highlands Region, which had a gross rental return of 11.7 per cent. “Median house values ranged from $89,483 to $521,597 and for units between $133,205 and $395,577,” the report read. “(It) featured 63 suburbs where houses represent good rental opportunities and 37 suburbs where units offer the highest yields, while also demonstrating positive rental growth.” The other states lagged behind Queensland’s impressive rental performance, with only 17 suburbs making it to the list in New South Wales, 15 in South Australia and Victoria, eight in Tasmania and one in Western Australia, Northern Territory and Australian Capital Territory. MORE NEWS: Mansion listed with eye-watering price A total of 42 Queensland ’burbs graced the CoreLogic list.CoreLogic research analyst Cameron Kusher said to make the cut, the suburb had to have delivered “solid rental yields, consistent rental growth and vacancy rates of less than 3 per cent”.He added finding a positively geared investment was more likely in the top 100 areas. All seven Gold Coast suburbs featured on the list for their unit’s performance, with Reedy Creek leading the pack for the city at No. 51. The suburb’s units had a gross rental yield of 6.8 per cent per annum, a median rent of $430 per week and a median sales price of $350,000. Southport units followed at No. 79 thanks to a gross yield of 6.5 per cent, median rent of $390 per week and median sales price of $375,000. Labrador was ranked 80 followed by Upper Coomera (83), Mudgeeraba (92), Currumbin Waters (95) and Helensvale (97). Reedy Creek was home to the Gold Coast’s best performing investment units.Harcourts Coastal agent Katrina Keegan said the Gold Coast’s expansion of public transport was shinning the spotlight on suburbs further out of the CBD. “Main Beach would usually take the accolade but the public transport expansion is sharing it around,” she said. “The apartment sector has gone up because the light rail and extensions of the train stations are pushing people further out.”Ms Keegan said interstate investors and buyers looking for a sea-change were also bolstering the unit market.
