PANAMAX 2011 Concludes 12 Days of Training

first_imgBy Dialogo August 30, 2011 I do not understand how all these vessels could not manage to get effective help for the Panamanians in finding a light aircraft that fell in the water near Darien??? The U.S. and multinational forces who participated in PANAMAX 2011 concluded the exercise in Panama City on August 26, after 12 days of training simulating the defense of the Panama Canal. Sea and land forces from 16 nations, which included 22 naval assets, participated in class room training and real world simulations in Panama, and several locations in the United States. “Over the years PANAMAX has become the premiere multi-lateral exercise bringing together the countries and security forces of the western hemisphere in a shared commitment to protect one of the most important strategic infrastructures in the world,” said Coast Guard Rear Adm. Steven H. Ratti, director of Operations, U.S. Southern Command. According to RADM Ratti, the scenario was in response to a credible threat to the canal, which led to a United Nations resolution. The resolution called for a multi-national force to protect the canal. The U.S. Southern Command sponsored exercise covered visit, board, search, and seizure in both the Pacific Ocean, and Caribbean Sea phases. The guided missile frigate USS Thach (FFG 43), participated in operations in the Pacific, along with Guatemala, Nicaragua, Honduras, Peru, Chile, and host nation Panama. The Caribbean phase had the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Bear (WMEC 901) joining Mexico, Canada, and Ecuador in the VBSS training. Colombia took charge of the land forces that were investigating the simulated threat, and a Mexican navy ship participated in the operations for the first time. The exercise also covered dive training. Divers from Panama’s SENAN, along with Belizean, Canadian, and U.S. divers demonstrated the interoperability PANAMAX brings to partner nations. The interaction between the teams included diving, physical fitness, and other tasks divers must complete in their mission, like welding. “We’re down here training, developing partnerships and strengthening relationships; working on the interoperability between ourselves and our partner nations’ dive teams,” said Chief Warrant Officer James Horeinski, company commander Mobile Salvage Diving Unit 2, Little Creek, Virginia, EE. UU. “Working with a combined team gives divers the chance to see the different capabilities we have and they can put into practice new techniques.” The current exercise began in 2003, with Panama, Chile and the United States as the first nations to simulate the defense of the canal. Since then, nations from throughout the region have come together to participate in the defense of one of the world’s strategic economic points. “The Panama canal is one of the most important economic gateways for us, and our partner nations, so the defense of the canal has always been a very important task for us,” commented Panamanian Servicio Nacional Aeronaval, Cmdr. Osvaldo Urena, task force 803, about the exercise. The defense of the canal is equally important to our partners, as they have a need to use the canal.” The canal opened for business on Aug. 15, 1914. Since then, over 800,000 ships have transited the 47.9 mile man-made wonder to avoid the trip around the continent of South America. last_img read more

Telkomsel makes internet access affordable for South Tangerang students

first_imgIndonesian Consumers Foundation (YLKI) chairman Tulus Abadi praised Telkomsel’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) program as it would have a positive impact on society if companies were able to meet people’s needs. Companies are obligated to contribute to society as stipulated in the 2007 law on limited liability companies.“However, CSR should not be combined with brand promotion,” Tulus said.He added that the operator should provide free internet quota for its customers when it comes to CSR, rather than promoting its services that would lead to financial benefits.“When it comes to CSR, companies can provide this in any form, as long as it is needed by the people,” he went on to say.Topics : Cellular operator Telkomsel, a subsidiary of state-owned communications company PT Telkom Indonesia, is collaborating with the South Tangerang administration in Banten to provide affordable internet access for students to support their distance learning.The operator provides bulk data services through its education and society packages, which range in price from Rp 40,000 (US$2.79) for the 10-gigabyte quota to Rp 100,000 for the 50 GB one.“We are aware that education institutions have adapted to the new normal period. We hope our service in the education sector can help our customers study and do other academic activities despite being only at home,” Telkomsel consumer sales general manager for Greater Jakarta Kuntum Wahyudi said in a statement on Monday. The company also offers internet access for online learning through the video communication platform CloudX Telkomsel.Read also: Challenges of home learning during a pandemic through the eyes of a studentTelkomsel says several schools and universities in the municipality have used the platform, including Pamulang University, Binus International School, Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University and several state senior high schools.The cellular operator reported a 16-percent increase in its broadband traffic in April, as people used more internet services for e-learning, online meetings and various kinds of entertainment during the COVID-19 outbreak.
