USS Forrest Sherman Undergoes Underwater Hub Change Out

first_img November 10, 2014 View post tag: Undergoes View post tag: News by topic Carrier Strike Group 12’s commander visited Arleigh Burke-class Aegis destroyer USS Forrest Sherman (DDG 98) during an underwater hub change out at Mid-Atlantic Regional Maintenance Center (MARMC), Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia, Nov. 5.Rear Adm. Andrew L. Lewis observed divers who were using a new cofferdam to perform the change out.MARMC Dive Teams Delta and Bravo began working around the clock mid-October to replace Forrest Sherman’s existing propeller blades and hub, in order to keep Forrest Sherman mission ready for 2015.Lewis said:Having this ship fixed without any hindrance or restrictions, as soon as possible, within the repair plan and having the ship underway, being able to fight is what it’s all about.MARMC Diving Officer Chief Warrant Officer 3 Tim Andros said:Normally, this job would be done in dry-dock, but with the invention of this new type of cofferdam, it allows us to do this job underwater.The cofferdam provides a dry environment in which divers can work, and protects all equipment so there is no water intrusion when divers remove the hub of the ship.Andros added:This is only the second time this job has been done underwater in the Navy, and is the first time this job has been done underwater on an Arleigh Burke-class guided missile destroyer.MARMC divers completed the first underwater hub replacement to Oliver Hazard Perry-class guided-missile frigate USS Taylor (FFG 50) in Souda Bay, Greece, earlier this year, giving them experience for this job on Forrest Sherman. Although the two jobs are similar, the configuration on the bottom of each ship is slightly different; a frigate has one screw where a destroyer has two, affecting how the cofferdam fits underneath the ships.The hub replacement is expected to be complete later this month.[mappress mapid=”14371″]Press release, Image: US Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: americas View post tag: Change Out View post tag: hub Share this articlecenter_img View post tag: Underwater View post tag: Defence View post tag: Navy Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Forrest Sherman Undergoes Underwater Hub Change Out USS Forrest Sherman Undergoes Underwater Hub Change Out View post tag: USS Forrest Shermanlast_img read more

Roberts Bakery cycles for charity

first_imgStaff from Roberts Bakery have raised £15,000 for a breast cancer charity by completing a two-day cycling challenge.Employees from the Cheshire bakery firm cycled from the company’s headquarters in Northwich to Snowdon, followed by a steep climb to the top of Mount Snowdon, to help raise funds for Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention. The money the company has raised for the charity, which currently totals £38,000, will contribute to the groundbreaking PROCAS study, which aims to predict which women are most susceptible to breast cancer.Genesis Breast Cancer Prevention, based in Wythenshawe Hospital, has supported Roberts’ family member Lindsay Occleston Roberts, who was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009.She said: “This is a truly pioneering study. I sincerely hope it will reveal why some women get breast cancer and that it will ultimately help us to prevent this awful disease in the future.”last_img read more

SMC office calls attention to relationship violence

first_imgThe Saint Mary’s Belles Against Violence Office (BAVO) will sponsor several events and activities to commemorate National Dating Violence Awareness Month and continue the conversation about dating violence issues beyond February. “A primary purpose for these events is to encourage continued discussion to raise awareness and ultimately reduce the incidence and impact of violence,” BAVO director Connie Adams said. To kick off the office’s sponsored events, Adams said students, faculty and staff can watch and discuss a recorded lecture by Anne Munch, a consultant for the United States military. The lecture focuses on the intricacies of some sexual assault cases in America on Feb. 11. Since sexual assault and dating violence are related issues, Adams said Munch’s lecture is especially pertinent. “According to national studies, the majority of sexual assaults … occur within known relationships,” Adams said. “The topic of sexual assault is relevant when discussing dating violence.” During the week prior to Valentine’s Day, Adams said BAVO will host a Valentines Against Violence fundraiser by selling cards to support the Family Justice Center’s SOS, a local nonprofit service helping survivors of sexual assault and relationship violence. Such fundraising events can make a real difference with widespread participation, Adams said. “Each person can participate and support [BAVO’s] mission,” she said. “Whether that means starting to follow BAVO SMC on Twitter or buying a Valentine or attending one program, each action is important. Our individual actions matter and, when viewed collectively, promote change.” In an event co-sponsored by Women’s Health and the Student Nurse Association, Saint Mary’s will welcome Francine Henley, coordinator of the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner (SANE) program at St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, to campus to discuss “myths and facts associated with forensic and medical exams following physical and sexual assaults,” Adams said. Throughout the month of February, Adams said BAVO SMC Facebook and Twitter accounts will share facts and statistics about dating violence and healthy relationships. Other events planned include a Green Dot video contest, which calls for student teams to create and submit a video promoting the Green Dot Campaign, a program focused on bystander intervention and violence prevention. Adams said submissions are due by 5 p.m. Feb. 22. Contest prizes include an AeroPress coffee maker for the best individual entry, and desserts and conversation with Saint Mary’s president Carol Ann Mooney for the winning video.

CUDEs raise over $60,000 in 2017 to improve people’s lives

first_imgAs most of you know, the Credit Union Development Education (DE) Program takes place four times a year and aims to invigorate and educate credit union professionals on credit union history, principles and philosophy. What you might not know is that during each DE Training, the participants are asked to complete a specific project, one that involves planning, fundraising, hands-on work and improves people’s lives in some way. These projects show Credit Union Development Educators (CUDEs) that they can make a difference, and they are tasked with completing their own DE project when they return home to their credit unions.For the first two trainings in 2017, participants were asked to raise funds to support the Helping Hands Project, an organization that provides prosthetic hands to children across the world who have suffered a loss. As you can imagine, many families in rural countries do not have the financial means or the access to services for children with limb loss. These prosthesis are life changing for them.Each class is given a fundraising goal to reach, and they work in small groups to raise the funds and actually assemble one of the prosthetic hands. These hands were then placed in personalized and decorated bags to be given to a child in need. continue reading » 6SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblrlast_img read more

ESG data firm Sustainalytics takes over GES International

first_imgDutch data specialist Sustainalytics has acquired Swedish share ownership services group GES International.As a consequence, Sustainalytics now employs more than 500 staff operating from 17 offices worldwide.Stockholm-based GES International specialises in engagement and voting for institutional investors, while Sustainalytics gathers and analyses data on environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) criteria and publishes ESG ratings.Sustainalytics said the activities of both companies were complementary to each other, with Sustainalytics providing information for investment choices and GES delivering services required by investors after buying assets. GES International has been campaigning for fairer practices in the cocoa sectorIn recent years the Swedish firm has been pressuring chocolate producers to take action against child labour on cocoa plantations in Ivory Coast and Ghana, and to ensure that plantations pay their staff decent wages.GES also publishes an annual list of cocoa processing companies and their relevant policies. Last year, it showed that Mondelez – owner of the Milka, Cadbury, Côte d’Or and Toblerone brands – and US manufacturer Hershey were the best and worst performers, respectively.Michael Jantzi, founder and director of Sustainalytics, said he expected that the merger would widen the company’s services for its 550 pension fund and asset manager clients.Sustainalytics said that almost all current 65 GES staff would continue working for the new combination.“As investors place an increasingly high value on constructive engagement with portfolio companies, we are delighted to join a firm as highly respected and like-minded as Sustainalytics,” said Hanna Roberts, GES’ chief executive.“Capitalising on Sustainalytics’ rich product portfolio and extensive global footprint, we will be able to offer our clients higher-quality products and deeper international resources.”Last year, Sustainalytics acquired Solaron Sustainability Services, a firm focusing on gathering information about controversial issues at companies in emerging markets. It also struck a partnership with FTSE Russell to allow the index provider to construct benchmarks based on Sustainalytics’ ratings. PGGM, the €215bn asset manager for the large Dutch healthcare scheme PFZW, has outsourced part of its engagement activities to GES.last_img read more
