Bush (CVN 77). Share this article View post tag: Northrop Grumman The US Navy has awarded Northrop Grumman a contract to deliver the first serial FMU-139D/B, a new all-electronic bomb fuze suitable for many general purpose bombs.With the US Navy’s decision this January to authorize full rate production, the improved FMU-139D/B bomb fuze will increase performance and reliability.The FMU-139D/B replaces three legacy bomb fuzes – FMU-139C/B, FMU-152 and most FMU-143s – which were manufactured with technology that relied on mechanical mechanisms to safe and arm each fuze. In contrast, the FMU-139D/B relies on electronics to safe and arm the device.“The FMU-139D/B’s all-electronic nature improves affordability. It is easier to manufacture, assemble and test than other legacy fuzes,” Pat Nolan, vice president, missile products, Northrop Grumman, said.FMU-139D/B production orders have the potential to exceed $400 million over the next four years under the production contract. FMU-139D/B will be used by both the US Navy and the US Air Force, and the Navy Program Office will manage the requirements.The FMU-139D/B will be produced at Northrop Grumman’s Allegany Ballistics Laboratory (ABL) facility in Rocket Center, West Virginia. The FMU-139D/B is designed to be a multi-purpose fuze equipped with general purpose characteristics and also serves as a highly survivable fuze for penetrator weapons.

Fresh sexual assault allegations against Oxford professor

first_imgEugene Rogan, director of the Middle East Centre when Ramadan was suspended, said the following at the time; “It’s not just about sexual violence. For some students it’s just another way for Europeans to gang up against a prominent Muslim intellectual. We must protect Muslim students who believe and trust in him, and protect that trust”.  Just days after Ayari came forward, a second woman filed a complaint stating that Ramadan assaulted and raped her in his hotel room.  The first accusations against Ramadan emerged in October 2017, when activist Henda Ayari filed a complaint with the prosecutor’s office in Rouen, which said that Ramadan had sexually assaulted her in a Paris hotel room. Ayari had previously recorded the incident without naming the perpetrator in her 2016 book ‘J’ai choisi d’être libre’ (‘I Chose to be Free’). “An agreed leave of absence implies no presumption or acceptance of guilt and allows Professor Ramadan to address the extremely serious allegations made against him, all of which he categorically denies, while meeting our principal concern – addressing heightened and understandable distress, and putting first the wellbeing of our students and staff.”  Since then, further accusations have been made about Ramadan’s behaviour, including by a third woman who claimed that Ramadan sent her ‘pornographic’ messages as well as threatening and blackmailing her, as well as four women who came forward with allegations that Ramadan sexually assaulted them while they were teenagers.  Although Ramadan continued to teach for a short while after the first allegations surfaced, on 7th November 2017 he took an ‘agreed leave of absence’ from his University duties. At the time, the faculty of Theology and Religion apologized for their “lack of communication” with students.  Tariq Ramadan, Oxford Professor of Contemporary Islam, is facing fresh accusations of sexual assault.  On 31 January 2018, Ramadan was taken into custody by the French police, and was released on bail nine months later.  The University’s statement on the Ramadan accusations said: “The University has consistently acknowledged the gravity of the allegations against Professor Ramadan, while emphasising the importance of fairness and the principles of justice and due process.”  A woman, as yet unnamed, came forward and gave a report to French police in May of this year, details of which surfaced recently following a leak to Le Journal du Dimanche and Europe 1. The assault itself is alleged to have happened in 2014. This comes after numerous women accused Ramadan of sexual assault and manipulation.  A statement posted on Ramadan’s website acknowledged the new allegations, saying “I am, of course, aware of the investigation’s new elements and the new complaint, which the media spoke of abundantly on Sunday, August 25th.” “I will speak in the coming days to present the facts with determination, clarity and serenity. In sha Allah”.last_img read more

Drug Commission Echoes Governor’s Anti-Marijuana Position

first_imgNovember 9, 2017    By Makenna MaysTheStatehouseFile.comINDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Commission to Combat Drug Abuse voted overwhelmingly Thursday to oppose efforts to decriminalize marijuana for medical or recreational use.The 11-3 vote, with two abstentions, was taken at the commission’s regular meeting, echoing Gov. Eric Holcomb’s opposition to legislative efforts to relax Indiana’s marijuana laws.“I think it’s really important that we’re talking about the most vulnerable population in this state, that we’re doing what we can to make sure that our young children are not taking edible marijuana and ending up in our emergency rooms and our hospitals,” said Dr. Kristina Box, the state’s health commissioner, after she made the motion.Dr. Kristina Box, Indiana’s Department of Health commissionerHowever, not everyone on the committee agreed that the commission should vote on this issue.“When I signed up for this commission, I signed up for a particular reason and that was to address the opioid epidemic,” said Sen. Gregory Taylor, D-Indianapolis. “This commission was never tasked with taking a position on marijuana, marijuana is not an opioid.” He was one of the no votes.The commission took the vote a day after Holcomb was asked whether he would support efforts to relax the state’s marijuana laws. At least one lawmaker has said he will introduce legislation in 2018 to make it legal for medical use while a national veterans’ group is pushing for a study of the issue.“The FDA is the organization that approves drugs in this country, and they’ve not yet, and so we’re not there in this state,” Holcomb said. “At this time right now, I’m trying to get drugs off the street, not add more into the mix. So, I’m just not supportive of that.”Meanwhile, state Rep. Jim Lucas, R-Seymour, has said he will introduce legislation that would legalize marijuana for medical purposes. Several medical marijuana bills were filed in the last legislative session and all failed.Organizations such as the American Legion believe that there is some merit into researching the medicinal value of the drug. Many veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and chronic pain have told the Veteran’s Administration that their health has improved by using medicinal cannabis.“We have never endorsed the use of marijuana for recreational or even medicinal purposes,” said John Raughter, communications director at the American Legion. “All we’re saying is we want the VA to do research into the area.”Currently, marijuana is listed as a Schedule I drug, which says it has no medicinal value. Other Schedule I drugs include heroin, ecstasy and LSD.“We are saying that we want it to be removed as a Schedule I and be reclassified because we want the VA to study whether or not it has potential medicinal value,” Raughter said.An independent public opinion research company recently released the results of a nationwide survey of veterans about the use of medical cannabis:83 percent believe the federal government should legalize medical cannabis nationwide,82 percent said they would want to have medical cannabis as a federally-legal treatment option,92 percent support medical research,100 percent aged 18-30 support federally legalized medical cannabis, and79 percent age 60-plus support federally legalized medical cannabis.At the last American Legion national convention in August, the organization passed a resolution proposing that VA doctors should be able to discuss with veterans the use of marijuana for medicinal purposes and recommend it in those states where medical marijuana is legal.“If a doctor can provide it to a non-veteran outside the VA system in the state because of their state laws, we’re basically saying, you know, that’s something the VA should be able to do as well in cases that’s appropriate,” Raughter said.The debate over medical marijuana comes as others states have legalized the drug for either medical or recreational use. California, Massachusetts, Maine and Nevada have already all passed measures legalizing recreational marijuana. It is also legal in Oregon and Colorado.The debate is also taking place as communities across the state grapple with opioid addiction. State Sen. Jim Merritt, R-Indianapolis, is proposing bills for the 2018 legislation that would impose tougher penalties on some drug crimes.FOOTNOTE: Makenna Mays is a reporter for TheStatehouseFile.com, a news website powered by Franklin College journalism students.Print Friendly, PDF & Email FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Press release: New backing to transform the UK’s future through the modern Industrial Strategy

first_img Innovative ideas that bring together world-class UK science, research and innovation to develop cutting edge products and services of the future have received an extra £1.7 billion making it the largest increase for 40 years (to £7 billion). That includes £210 million to develop new medical diagnostic tools and treatments, £90 million for the food and farming industry to embrace agri-tech and £184 million for 41 UK universities to train the next generation of world-class scientists and engineers. 6 sector deals between government and industry have been published – from construction and automotive to nuclear and the creative industries, including £1.9 billion of investment in life sciences and £1 billion for artificial intelligence. They are not only about attracting investment and growth, but also ensuring we have the skilled, diverse workforce we need for the future. Plans for new technical qualifications (T-levels) and to transform the quality and quantity of apprenticeships.Furthered the connectivity of Britain’s towns, cities and rural areas, including the first allocations of the £190 million full-fibre challenge fund and £25 million for 6 5G testbeds across the UK. Opened the Transforming Cities Fund with billions of pounds ready to go to projects that drive productivity by improving connections within city regions. Opened the Faraday Institution in Oxford to keep the UK at the forefront of global battery manufacture.Announced plans for a new spaceport in Sutherland The UK now has the fastest growing infrastructure investment across the G7, providing £31 billion of additional capital spending to areas critical to improving productivity. Launched the £9 million Centre of Data Ethics and Innovation to act as an advisory body to government and regulators on ethics of data and its use, including for AI. Launched the Patient Capital Fund, which will invest £2.5 billion in our most innovative companies. It has been taken forward at pace over the last year: up to £125 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund for the Future Flight challenge a commitment to encourage more women into aviation £13.7 million to support SMEs to commercialise technologies the UK Aerospace Research Consortium of leading aerospace engineering universities will help industry understand emerging technologies, encourage collaboration and boost research and development encouraging the UK’s Aerospace sector to work with Local Enterprise Partnerships to deliver Local Investment Strategies collaborating with Devolved Administrations by putting in place apprenticeship standards that will help deliver the skilled individuals needed by the UK for it to prosper new joint government-Industry Aerospace Sector Deal to develop ‘Future Flight’ through the next generation of electric planes, drones and autonomous aircraft by 2025 multi-million pound package of new investment to turbo-charge UK industry and put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future comes as Business Secretary Greg Clark marks the first anniversary of the modern Industrial Strategy when he will say “no deal puts this all at risk” AI and data ageing society clean growth the future of mobility Supporting the deal, Baroness Sugg, Minister for Aviation said: ADS Chief Executive Paul Everitt said: A multi-million pound package of new investment to turbo-charge UK industry in support of the modern Industrial Strategy and put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, including up to £125 million from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund to develop future flight £15 million government investment for GKN Aerospace’s new Global Technology Centre in Bristol. The centre is expected to open in 2020 and will ensure the UK is a hub for world class innovative technology for the next generation of fuel-efficient aircraft The new government-industry Aerospace Sector Deal which includes support proposals for supply chain SMEs to boost their competitiveness on the global stage and a pledge to increase the number of women in aviation Follows yesterday’s announcement of the £1.3 billion Life Sciences Sector Deal 2 with record investment in diagnostics and early intervention to help people live healthier, longer lives The next steps for establishing a technical education system that will rival the best in the world, with an action plan for the introduction of the new T level qualifications as set out by the Secretary of State for Education in a speech at Battersea Power Station today Also, includes the Bio-economy strategy which was published earlier in the week to help double the size of the bio-economy to £440 billion by 2030, setting out an ambition for world-leading standards for bio-based and biodegradable plastics New Aerospace Sector DealAs part of the deal, the government is launching the Future Flight Challenge, which will provide up to £125 million to aerospace and other manufactures to research and engineer new technologies and infrastructure, which industry will match. This will support the development of electric and autonomous aircraft and transform the future of transport in urban areas as we utilise our airspace to ease congestion. Industry will initially focus on smaller aircraft and drones to ensure the suitability of the new technologies before developing them for larger passenger aircraft. It means that by 2026, the government and industry will have jointly invested more than £4 billion in the future of UK aerospace.Speaking about the deal, Greg Clark will say: A strong long-term partnership between government and industry is essential for UK aerospace to meet the challenges of global competition and new market opportunities. The Aerospace Sector Deal demonstrates the UK’s commitment to continue as one of the most attractive locations for the global aerospace and aviation industries. The Future Flight challenge will ensure the UK takes a lead in delivering cleaner, quieter and more innovative aircraft. We must fast-track the electrification of flight, exploit the global potential of new urban mobility solutions and pioneer autonomous aviation.center_img The UK’s contribution to the global aerospace industry cannot be underestimated. Half of the world’s modern large passenger aircraft have wings designed and built here in the UK; and every 2.5 seconds, a Rolls-Royce powered aircraft takes off or lands. But we are not complacent. The future of aerospace is cleaner, greener, and more efficient, and we want the UK to be the pioneers of new technology that will pave the way for increased electrification and autonomy in commercial aviation. This deal is our modern Industrial Strategy in action, combining the forces of government and industry to boost a sector that is vital to our future economy, export capabilities and will place the UK at the forefront of the next generation of air travel. For the past 2 years, I have been engaging with businesses, large and small, up and down the country about our post-Brexit economy. They have been clear and consistent in telling me what is needed to preserve jobs, open up new opportunities and build on the success of our trading relationships. An economy that will continue to be open and enterprising, driving invention and innovation through high regulatory standards, providing good quality, well-paid jobs throughout the country – with a reputation as a dependable and confident place to do business. This will be the test of a successful our long-term economic partnership with the EU. The withdrawal agreement is a significant first step in building our future relationship, while no deal puts this all at risk. Our modern Industrial Strategy is the government’s long-term plan for preparing and investing in our post-Brexit economy. And I could be in no better place than Bristol to mark this first anniversary. It is an honour to be visiting a city that has been at the heart of British industrial innovation for centuries. You can look out over the Avon and be reminded of the ingenuity of the floating harbour built here in 1809. The engineering behind it overcame one of the world’s highest tidal drops, stopping cargo ships getting stranded at low tide and opening-up the city to trade. And today, Bristol still exerts this influence. You can see it the world-leading advanced manufacturing plants of GKN, and the global cultural impact of animation companies like Aardman. Such world-beating enterprise will continue to be the UK’s calling card once we have left the EU. Truly world-leading science, innovation and business have no borders. Now – more than ever – we need to ensure that we remain an open, frictionless economy that welcomes talent while nurturing it at home. The hard-fought deal that the Prime Minister has secured has rightly been welcomed by businesses large and small throughout the country. I know many of you will be watching developments in Parliament in the coming days. I want to reassure you that the Prime Minister and I, together with our Cabinet colleagues, are intent on securing a good Brexit deal that delivers the certainty for business and therefore people’s livelihoods – up and down the country. Today’s package also includes: Notes to editorsThe Aerospace: Sector Deal includes: At a government event in Bristol with businesses, researchers, civic leaders and industry representatives to mark the first anniversary of the modern Industrial Strategy, Greg Clark will announce new support for the UK’s leading aerospace sector and the next generation of transport to tackle ground congestion and pollution in towns and cities.Aerospace: Sector DealThe deal will develop ‘Future Flight’ – including electric planes with vertical take-off capability, goods and service drones, to autonomous aircraft.Mr Clark is expected to say: The UK is a global leader in aviation innovation. From urban air mobility vehicles to small electric aircraft and drones, we are already developing exciting new forms of transport. Through the Future of Mobility Grand Challenge and alongside our forthcoming Aviation Strategy, we are exploring how these new technologies will change the way we travel, helping create the right conditions for the UK’s aerospace and drone industries to take off. The modern Industrial Strategy, published last year, sets out how the whole of the UK can build on its strengths, extend them into the future, and capitalise on new opportunities. Investing in science and research to keep the UK at the forefront of new technologies and the benefits they bring. Nurturing the talent of tomorrow – through more outstanding schools, world-leading universities and the technical skills that will drive the economy. And transforming the places where people live and work – the places where ideas and inspiration are born – by backing businesses and building infrastructure not just in London and the South East but across every part of our country.It sets out Grand Challenges to put the UK at the forefront of the industries of the future, ensuring that the UK takes advantage of major global changes, improving people’s lives and the country’s productivity. The first 4 are focused on the global trends which will transform our future: Other funding to be announced today from the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund includes projects to develop smart sustainable plastics packaging, accelerate early diagnostics in healthcare, harness the power of quantum technology, drive up manufacturing productivity (Made Smarter) as well as future flight. The funding will be delivered by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund, subject to business case approval and match funding from industry.last_img read more

Women’s Week kicks into high gear

first_imgIgnoring plummeting temperatures and gusting winds, teams of dancers from the Harvard Expressions Dance Company (EDC) shrugged off their winter jackets to perform several hip-hop dance numbers, stopping crowds of students in their tracks outside the Science Center today. The performance celebrated the opening of Women’s Week (March 5-9), a campuswide event that recognizes and celebrates the diverse organizations for women at Harvard.Co-sponsored by the Harvard College Women’s Center and The Seneca Inc., and with support from the Women’s Cabinet, Women’s Week programming covers a wide spectrum of topics, including a discussion on feminism in the hip-hop industry, a panel on female leadership at Harvard, and meetings on career and leadership opportunities for women.“Participants and attendees will get an interdisciplinary cross-sampling of the Harvard community,” said Angela Frankel ’14, who organized the kick-off event along with Tara Suri ’13 and Bex Kwan ’14.“Our goal is to bring new faces to Women’s Week, forge new connections, and inspire students to focus on prevailing gender issues,” she added.Immediately following EDC’s performance, Kat Baus ’15 and Maura Church ’14 performed as members of Speak Out Loud, a multicultural organization that promotes spoken-word poetry at Harvard.Kat Baus ’15 (pictured) reads an original poem during the opening celebration of Women’s Week.“Having Women’s Week on campus is really important, especially considering Harvard’s history of gender exclusion, and spoken word is an important part of that,” said Church. “Spoken word is about sharing in your own voice — as a woman, as a performer, and as an artist. It’s really about a certain kind of honesty. It’s not just about women power or girl power, but what it really means to be struggling as a woman or student going to Harvard.”For EDC dancers and co-directors Francisco Hernandez ’13 and DanThuy Chu ’13, participating in the opening ceremony reflected EDC’s dedication to equal opportunity for all individuals. “Women’s Week isn’t just about women,” said Hernandez. “It’s about equality in all things.”“A number of our members are active in Seneca,” said Chu. “As members, we feel a strong sense of advocacy toward that group. What better way to show our support than through dance?”To learn more about today’s events, as well as upcoming activities, visit Women’s Week.last_img read more
