Iraqi Army Drives Into Future With M1A1 Abrams Tanks

first_img Soldiers with Company C, 1st Battalion, 18th Infantry Regiment, 2nd Advise and Assist Brigade, 1st Infantry Division, United States Division-Center, worked with Iraqi Army 9th Armored Division soldiers during M1A1 Abrams tank drivers training Jan. 15-16, at Camp Taji, Iraq. “We focus on driving M1A1s to drive Iraq forward into the future and for the betterment of the people of Iraq,” said Iraq Army Jundi Anwar Hakim Khidher Al-Janabi, a tank commander with the 9th Armored Division, out of Camp Taji. All 140 M1A1s that the Government of Iraq has purchased from the U.S. are to be issued to the 9th Armored Division in monthly installments by the end of 2011, following a transitioning process at Contingency Operating Site Hammer, Iraq. The 9th Armored Division tankers will attend a 45-day new equipment operator’s course this spring at the Besmaya Combat Training Center, Iraq. The new equipment operator’s course curriculum will lead Iraqi Army tankers through everything the soldiers need to do as a crewman and crew in order to operate the tank effectively, starting with basic tank safety and ending with crew gunnery exercises,” said Sgt. 1st Class Philemon Jones, a platoon sergeant and master gunner with Company C, 1st Bn., 18th Inf. Regt. Armor crewmen with Company C, 1st Bn., 18th Inf. Regt. are training the Iraqis on individual tasks in preparation for the new equipment operator’s course. “The training will allow them to have a base of information, so [at the new equipment operator’s course] they can concentrate on the crew tasks instead of the individual tasks,” Jones said. The M1A1s will give Iraqis confidence in their equipment, precision in their engagements, pride and a new level of prestige, he said. “[Now] they’re on the same level as other countries and can defend themselves against internal threats as well as external threats,” Jones said. The M1A1s will help the current situation and control terrorist activities, said Jundi Hazim Swadi Jaber, a tank loader with the 9th Armed Division. “We will move forward, ahead of neighboring countries, in our technology. We’ll have an advantage,” Hazim said. “I’m proud, because I’m learning a new tank with technology that will help to fight the terrorists.” By Dialogo February 02, 2011last_img read more

Dudley Goodlette, R-Naples, sponsored HB 1623 and said it was the product of work by the state Division of Corporations, the section, law professors, and other interested parties.It streamlines many operations for the state, helps companies reduce some administrative operations, and guarantees inspection rights for company directors, among other changes, Goodlette said.“In general, it enhances and modernizes Florida’s corporate laws, encourages businesses to incorporate here, and protects investors,” Goodlette said. “It will significantly improve our corporate chapter and significantly promotes Florida as a good place to do corporate business.”The second bill HB 283, sponsored by Rep. Jack Seiler, D-Pompano Beach, would modify the UCC by adding requirement to filing amendments to financing statements, and provide exceptions to requirements for filing termination financing statements.Both were unanimously approved.Foundation seeks new fellows It would be harder to avoid jury service, and judges and the governor would lose their automatic exemption from service under a bill making its way through the House of Representatives.HB 1441, sponsored by Rep. Chris Smith, D-Ft. Lauderdale, also creates a fund to compensate jurors for lost wages when they serve on a lengthy case. It was passed by the House Judiciary Committee April 2 but, at Bar News deadline had no companion bill in the Senate.Smith said the measure reduces circumstances that people can cite to be excused from jury duty. It also requires that if they are excused, they must set a time within six months when they can serve, unless a judge agrees there are extreme circumstances that justify a further delay. In addition, the bill strengthens job protections for people serving on juries.It would also impose a $20 surcharge on civil filing fees to go into a fund to compensate jurors up to $300 a day after the 10th day of a trial, if their employers do not pay their wages while they serve on jury duty. The bill requires the Supreme Court to set rules for administering that fund.Rep. Philip Brutus, D-Miami, asked Smith if he really wanted judges serving on juries, noting the state law that exempts judges, the governor, and some other public officials from jury duty was being struck in the bill. “In the real world,” Smith replied, “no lawyer is going to let a judge sit on their case [on the jury]. But if we’re going to be fair and take in everyone, then let’s take in everybody.”Rep. Holly Benson, R-Pensacola, chair of the Select Committee on Article V, noted that plans for the state taking over more funding of the trial courts next year have most fees paid to clerks, not the court, and said Smith might want to change his lengthy trial compensation fund to track that. Smith promised to consider that.Committee Chair Rep. Jeff Kottkamp, R-Cape Coral, said the bill would provide more sophisticated jurors, who now have problems serving, and that would help in complex trials.“We need jurors who can understand a lot of the evidence,” agreed Rep Juan-Carlos Planas, R-Miami, a former prosecutor. “I ask you to work with the people to make sure this bill becomes law. The more people on this [juror] list that we can get on the jury, the better off we’re going to be.”Business law bills moved April 15, 2003 Regular News The Florida Bar Foundation has launched a drive in the Tallahassee area to recruit more fellows to boster the Foundation’s endowment.“As lawyers, we know that a helping hand — especially from a lawyer — can truly change someone’s life,” said William H. Davis, who is chairing the Tallahassee fellows campaign and serves as the Foundation’s secretary/treasurer. “The Florida Bar Foundation funds programs all over Florida, including in Tallahassee, that extend that hand to those who otherwise wouldn’t have a chance at justice or perhaps even peace of mind.”Davis said for decades the Foundation has been providing the leadership and funding necessary to help the legal system work for all Floridians and through its endowment, “is a sound and permanent expression of our sworn duty and of our desire to meet it.”“I hope that you will join me in sustaining the Foundation’s endowment by becoming a life member of The Florida Bar Foundation, through the Fellows program,” Davis said. “There are currently only 57 Fellows in Tallahassee, and our legal community clearly can and should be much better represented in this good work.”You can become a fellow by pledging a tax-deductible gift of $1,000 that is payable over five years or less.

What your credit union needs to know about synthetic ID fraud

first_imgWhile credit union leaders are ever vigilant of the latest in fraud activity to keep their institutions safe, synthetic identity fraud is an area that’s tricky for many to detect. It helps fraudsters navigate through most credit unions’ initial identification checks. Not only can credit unions get caught up in the scam by issuing credit cards, for example, but so can many other businesses that end up accepting those credit cards. Synthetic identity theft involves the use of real documents, like utility bills, but some or all the documents are based on false information. A true synthetic identity is created with completely fictitious elements, but it appears real and will pass the first line of traditional identity checks. For example, a fraudster may order utility services to a vacant lot. They can use the invoice for this service as proof of residence, thus passing an initial check performed by many credit unions. Synthetic ID fraud typically falls into one of three categories: employment, credit repair, and nefarious. Work or employment synthetic identity fraud is used to avoid being disqualified from jobs that require citizenship, residency, or no criminal record, and jobs that require good credit ratings in order to access consumers’ personal data or information. These typically are not conducted by a single individual, but more likely an organized group that establishes and sells the identity credentials. continue reading » ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

GE decides to sell Baker Hughes stake just one year after acquisition

first_imgIllustration: A Baker Hughes building. Photographer: Gerd Fahrenhorst. Shared under CC BY 3.0 license; the image has been croppedIndustrial giant GE is looking to get rid of its Baker Hughes GE business, just one year after acquiring oilfield services giant Baker Hughes for $3 billion.In a statement on Tuesday GE said that it would focus on Aviation, Power, and Renewable Energy, “creating a simpler, stronger, leading high-tech Industrial company.”GE said it planned to divest its equity ownership position in Baker Hughes, a GE Company (BHGE) – a 62.5% interest -“in an orderly manner” over the next two to three years.GE said BHGE’s full stream offering brought together equipment, services, and digital solutions to help its customers be more productive—a unique and powerful value proposition in a changing market, adding that the separation would provide BHGE with enhanced agility and the ability to focus on leading in the oil and gas industry.The company is also working to separate GE Healthcare into a standalone company.John Flannery, chairman, and CEO of GE, said: “Today marks an important milestone in GE’s history. We are aggressively driving forward as an aviation, power and renewable energy company—three highly complementary businesses poised for future growth. We will continue to improve our operations and balance sheet as we make GE simpler and stronger.”Flannery added: “GE Healthcare and BHGE are excellent examples of GE at its best—anticipating customer needs, breaking barriers through innovation and delivering life-changing products and services.“Today’s actions unlock both a pure-play healthcare company and a tier-one oil and gas servicing and equipment player. We are confident that positioning GE Healthcare and BHGE outside of GE’s current structure is best not only for GE and its owners, but also for these businesses, which will strengthen their market-leading positions and enhance their ability to invest for the future while carrying the spirit of GE forward.”At the time of the merger last year, BGHE had around 70,000 people, operations in more than 120 countries, four product companies—Oilfield Services, Oilfield Equipment, Turbomachinery and Process Solutions, and Digital Solutions—and 24 product lines and segments.The company has dual headquarters in Houston, TX and London, UK.Offshore Energy Today StaffRelated:<span data-mce-type=”bookmark” style=”display: inline-block; width: 0px; overflow: hidden; line-height: 0;” class=”mce_SELRES_start”></span>last_img read more

Cricket News India vs Australia 2nd Test highlights: Hosts end on 277/6, Ishant and Vihari take two wickets

first_img Bumrah is touching close to 90 mph on this deck. Usman Khawaja and Marcus Harris are hanging in there. The pitch is starting to assist the bowlers even more now. New Delhi: Australia chose to bat and they got off to a great start thanks to a magnificent 112-run stand for the opening wicket between Marcus Harris and Aaron Finch. Both batsmen reached fifty but Finch was trapped LBW by Jasprit Bumrah. The middle order wobbled and it took an 81-run stand between Shaun Marsh and Travis Head. Head reached his fifty but Marsh was undone by Hanuma Vihari. The second new ball helped India make further inroads with Ishant Sharma getting Head out for 58. However, Tim Paine and Pat Cummins have ensured Australia have reached a good total on a wicket that is assisting the pacers immensely. (SCORECARD) Lunch on day 1 of the Perth Test and it is comfortably Australia’s session. Finch and Harris managed to negotiate a tough period in which there was movement and assistance both in the air and off the wicket. India could not maintain the consistency and leaked runs. Australia are 66/0 and they would be hoping to build from here.  That will be stumps on day 1. Australia are 277/6 and they will be pleased with their effort. Marcus Harris and Travis Head star for Australia but Ishant Sharma and Hanuma Vihari were the pick of the bowlers with two wickets apiece.  WICKET! Gone, another one! The pressure has reaped dividends and Australia are unravelling here. Hanuma Vihari gets his first Test wicket. The extra bounce from the Perth wicket does the trick and the batsman edges it to slip where Ajinkya Rahane takes the catch. Harris gone for a well-made 70.

Virat Kohli opts for the review but the ball is just missing the stumps. India have lost the review. It was not clipping so India will have only one review left.  India are continuing to apply the screws but Shaun Marsh and Travis Head have steadied the ship. The partnerships is nearing fifty. After 15 balls, Marcus Harris gets off the mark. The Indian bowlers are not giving away an inch on this wicket as they get movement both in the air and off the deck. Facebook Twitter Whats app Linked In 08:17 (IST) Harris nears a fifty with yet another crunching drive through cover. He is nearing a fifty. What a moment this would be for Marcus Harris, scoring in Perth in front of his home fans with Justin Langer as the coach.  Finch and Harris have stitched a steady opening stand. If they can survive the next 20-25 minutes, they would have done a great job.  WICKET! Brilliant catch from Virat Kohli. Handscomb looked to steer a short ball to third man but the extra bounce disoncerts him and Kohli plucks a magnificent catch at gully with his right hand.
