New Squadron 725 Team Expands

first_img View post tag: Navy View post tag: team Graduates of the previous Seahawk course had the chance to gain experience on Royal Australian Navy Seahawks before joining the United States Navy’s training system, however, Leading Seaman Carruthers and Leading Seaman Clunie began their Romeo training in mid 2013 without this advantage. After ten months of intensive flying training at Naval Station Mayport with Squadron HSM40, they now join NUSQN 725 as qualified ‘Sensos’.“The whole conversion was a great experience and an amazing opportunity,” Leading Seaman Carruthers said.“The instruction and guidance we received from the US Navy was excellent. They are solid operators and have so much experience with the Seahawk,” he said.“The Romeo is a multi role helicopter and it’s definitely a step up from previous aircraft I’ve qualified on,” Leading Seaman Clunie said.The training consisted of aircraft and ground events covering numerous missions, ranging from Search and Rescue and Utility to the primary missions of Anti Submarine Warfare and Surface Warfare.Leading Seamen Carruthers and Clunie will remain in the United States to join NUSQN 725 for operations from Naval Air Station Jacksonville. Further on-the-job training and operations under the Fleet Air Arm flying management system will consolidate their US Navy training and they will both play a critical role when the Squadron returns to Australia in December this year.[mappress]Press Release, June 16, 2014; Image: Australian Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today New Squadron 725 Team Expands New Squadron 725 Team Expands Authorities View post tag: NUSQN 725 View post tag: americascenter_img View post tag: expands June 16, 2014 View post tag: News by topic The New Squadron 725 (NUSQN 725) team at Naval Air Station Jacksonville recently grew by two, with the graduation of the first Royal Australian Navy Aircrewmen to complete the MH-60R Seahawk Romeo Basic Sensor Operators Course and achieve the qualification of ‘Senso’.

5,000 new jobs at Starbucks

first_imgStarbucks UK will be looking to tackle youth unemployment by creating 5,000 new jobs in the next five years throughout the UK.The move will help to support the global coffee company’s plans to develop and expand its new drive-thru concept, for which it currently has nine outlets nationwide, with the first having opened in Cardiff in 2008. The new roles to be created over the next five years will support Starbuck UK’s aim to open up 200 drive-thru outlets during the same period of time.Kris Engskov, managing director of Starbucks UK and Ireland, said: “Customers told us that they now expect the best possible coffee wherever they are and the success of our first drive-thru stores shows that this is a huge opportunity. It also means that we are able to create quality jobs at a time when they are most needed and because half of our baristas are under 24 years old, this will particularly benefit young job-seekers at a time of record youth unemployment.”Around half of the drive-thrus will be operated under licence by petrol forecourt retailer Euro Garages, with many of these stores to be located in the Midlands and the north of England.Zuber Issa, managing director of Euro Garages, said: “Our relationship with Starbucks has been a huge success to date. We’re delighted to be making such a positive announcement about our expansion together that will create new and exciting employment opportunities for so many people across our sites.”Starbucks has found many new places to sell its coffee, including on trains and planes as well as in supermarkets and workplaces. In 2010, Starbucks opened 35 motorway stores with Welcome Break, serving seven million cups in the first year of operation.The company has more than 700 stores in the UK, contributing to consistent sales growth during the last two years.last_img read more

When he is not behind the keys for Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Bustle In Your Hedgerow, the recently back in action Benevento/Russo Duo, or his own solo project trio, he is typically making more music at his home in Woodstock, NY.Benevento recently played a show with his trio of drummer Andy Borger and bassist Karina Rykman for a special live recording session at Applehead Studios to a sold-out audience, which will be released as a Woodstock Sessions album. The group has unveiled live video for “Heavy Metal Floating Upstream” (from Benevento’s album The Story of Fred Short) from the performance, which can be viewed below.

Student senate updates campaign regulations

first_imgStudent senate passed three amendments related to the campaign process during Wednesday’s meeting. The resolutions, presented by representatives from the department of internal affairs, dealt with social media regulations, candidate responsibility for supporters and endorsements in campaigns. Previously, the Constitution of the Undergraduate Student Body asserted that candidates may create a social media account or page that must be approved by the election committee and that all posts and comments must be individually approved by the committee. As of Wednesday night, all posts must “adhere to the ethical guidelines” detailed in the constitution, but will not need to be individually approved. “The thing is, judicial council is not a police force,” Fisher Hall senator sophomore Abe Jenson said. “Judicial council does not go on pages and look for posts that do not adhere to the guidelines. That’s the responsibility of the other candidates and the students — to bring allegations to judicial council.”Louis Bertolotti, executive director of the Student Union Board (SUB), gave his support to the resolution. (Editor’s note: Louis Bertolotti is a Viewpoint columnist).“As someone who has run for office, I think this would be an amazing policy because of all the effort it takes to go approve every single idea,” he said. “If we want to elect smart leaders, we’re all in college, we should be able to follow the rules given to us by judicial council, and if we break those rules, face the consequences. I don’t think we should be babied into it and approving all the posts ahead of time.” Director of internal affairs Rebecca Blais presented the second resolution and explained how the constitution previously dealt with the unethical actions of supporters of candidates, and how those actions affected the candidates themselves.  “If one of their supporters decides to engage in unethical behavior — making an illegal post, any of the things not allowed in an election — the candidate will be held responsible for it,” she said of the previous policy. “We think that’s ridiculous for the candidate to be held accountable for every ‘rogue supporter,’ to talk in extremes.”The amendment includes an additional subclause that says candidates cannot be involved in or instruct others to engage in unethical behavior, including through inaction. “The process of an election allegation would be that a person would bring forth the offending post or offending behavior, and in some way that action would have to be connected back to the candidate, whether it’s testimony or a text message or something like that,” judicial council president Zach Waterson said. After the passing of the night’s third amendment, candidates and tickets can solicit and campaign on endorsements from individual students and student groups, but “endorsements may not be construed to represent that of residence halls, student union organizations, university departments, offices or officials.” Additionally, no person holding a position enumerated in the constitution can endorse any candidate for any student office. Blais said the previous issue with this section was the discrepancy about endorsements from student leaders and student athletes, in particular, as it should not appear that an individual is representing the entire group with their endorsement.Individuals can still voice their support in conversation, but cannot appear in any endorsements for the candidate. Waterson said the language in differentiating between conversation and endorsement was left intentionally broad so that it could be looked at on a situational basis.“This strikes a balance between pure legislation and the ability for the committee to bring in information to determine on a case-by-case basis whether the specific communication constitutes an endorsement,” he said.

What’s holding your credit union back from in-house card processing?

first_img 7SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr The power of plastic. It has advantages to both the members that swipe for purchases, and also for credit unions that issue and control processing in-house. Federal Reserve data released in 2014, found that 72 percent of consumers had at least one credit card.1  So, what’s the best option for your credit union when it comes time to deciding whether to outsource or process cards in-house?There’s no doubt that Americans love credit cards. That same Federal Reserve data reports that the average credit card holder in 2012 had four: 2.4 general purpose cards, 0.2 charge cards and 1.5 branded cards (cards displaying a merchant’s logo).1 And when it comes to bank cards, Experian’s State of Credit 2013 report found that consumers had on average 2.19 bank credit cards (which do not include store cards). 2For credit unions that do not have a strategic focus on card business, outsourcing may be the right option. However, there are certainly many benefits to running an in-house credit card program. continue reading »last_img read more
