Eleven Bases Vie for New Air Tankers

first_imgEleven installations are in the running to host the KC-46 air refueling tanker in the Air Force’s next round of selection, lawmakers said last week.The installations, according to a release from Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.), are Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J.; Dover AFB, Del.; Dyess AFB, Texas; Fairchild AFB, Wash.; Grand Forks AFB, N.D.; Joint Base Charleston, S.C.; Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash.; Little Rock AFB, Ark.; MacDill AFB, Fla.; Scott AFB, Ill.; and Travis AFB, Calif.The Air Force will narrow the list of approved candidates in the spring and likely will make a final basing decision by the end of the year, said Jeff Sagnip, a spokesman for Smith. Boeing is manufacturing the next generation aerial refueling tankers.“Three years ago, the joint base narrowly lost out on becoming the first National Guard base to host the KC-46 tankers — making it to the final round after the original 80 installations were reviewed,” said Smith, who represents a large portion of Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst.One of the New Jersey installation’s primary advantages is its proximity to Europe, Africa and the Middle East, where the tankers are primarily used, Sagnip told the Asbury Park Press. “It would be a superb fit,” Sagnip said. “We’re ideally located. It’s the shortest distance between Europe and the Middle East.”In a news conference at MacDill on Thursday, Defense Secretary Ash Carter spoke about the Air Force tankers, but declined to speculate about MacDill’s chances of hosting the new aircraft, reported the Tampa Tribune.“The Air Force is looking nationwide for optimal locations,” Carter said.“This announcement shows just how hard MacDill leaders, the bipartisan Tampa Bay congressional delegation and the Tampa Bay community have worked to demonstrate that the base has room to grow as the Air Force modernizes its mission structure,” Rep. Kathy Castor (D-Fla.), who represents MacDill, said in a press release. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Kim Jong Un and Seoul envoys discuss possible interKorean summit

first_imgNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un discussed ways to ease tensions on the peninsula with visiting South Korean envoys, the state KCNA news agency reported on March 6. Photo : AFPNorth Korean leader Kim Jong Un discussed a possible summit with envoys from the South’s President Moon Jae-in, both sides said Tuesday, in the latest step of an Olympics-driven rapprochement on the divided peninsula.The delegation from Seoul is the most senior to travel North for more than a decade, and comes as Moon tries to broker talks between nuclear-armed Pyongyang and Washington after months of high tensions.The North’s official news agency KCNA said Kim “warmly welcomed” the South Korean officials, who handed over a letter from Moon. Photos showed Kim in a jovial mood, smiling and shaking hands enthusiastically.”Hearing the intention of President Moon Jae In for a summit from the special envoy of the south side, he exchanged views and made a satisfactory agreement,” KCNA added.But Seoul said no agreement had yet been reached on a meeting between Kim and Moon, which would be the first such summit since 2007.”It’s not an agreement, it’s discussions,” an official from the South’s presidential Blue House told AFP, adding that the two sides had “somewhat shared the view” on other points.Kim’s talks with the South Koreans lasted more than four hours, and included dinner at the North’s ruling Workers Party headquarters in Pyongyang, according to the Blue House.Details will be made public after the delegation returns late Tuesday, it said.The North’s Rodong Sinmun newspaper, the mouthpiece of the ruling Workers Party, devoted its entire front page Tuesday to the visit under the headline “Comrade Kim Jong Un receives special envoys from the south’s president”.The main picture showed Kim with the five South Korean officials in the delegation, and it carried seven other front-page images of the talks — at which Kim’s sister Kim Yo Jong sat to his left — with more coverage inside. ‘Right conditions’ -The Seoul delegation’s visit comes after the North’s leader sent his sister to the Winter Games in the South and invited Moon to a summit in Pyongyang.Kim Yo Jong’s trip was the first visit to the South by a member of the North’s ruling dynasty since the end of the 1950-53 Korean War, and her appearance at the Games’ opening ceremony — where athletes from the two Koreas marched together — made global headlines.At the time Moon did not immediately accept the invitation to Pyongyang, saying that the “right conditions” were needed.Moon has sought to use the Pyeongchang Games to open dialogue between Washington and Pyongyang in hopes of easing a nuclear standoff that has heightened fears over global security.In a demonstration of the careful path he must tread, Moon stressed the importance of dialogue with the North to newly commissioned army officers Tuesday, but also vowed to strengthen Seoul’s military alliance with Washington.”We must talk with North Korea for the denuclearisation of the Korean Peninsula,” Moon said.”But at the same time, we must devote our energy on swiftly and effectively developing capabilities to counter nuclear and missile threats from the North.”His envoys’ trip to Pyongyang showed that “we can achieve denuclearisation and peace on the Korean peninsula through our own efforts”, he said, but added he will “further solidify” Seoul’s joint defence posture with Washington.While Pyongyang has long said it is willing to talk to the US without preconditions, it is also adamant it will not give up the “treasured sword” of its nuclear weapons, which it says it needs to defend itself from a possible invasion by the United States.Washington insists that the North must take concrete steps towards denuclearisation before negotiations can take place.It was not clear whether the two Koreas discussed denuclearisation on Monday. Asked if the topic had come up, a senior Blue House official was quoted by Yonhap as saying: “I assume so.”‘Unity and dialogue’ -The Winter Olympics were held by “fellow countrymen of the same blood” and provided “a good atmosphere of reconciliation, unity and dialogue between the north and the south,” KCNA quoted Kim Jong Un as telling the South Korean envoys.Before leaving for Pyongyang, the South’s national security advisor Chung Eui-yong said: “We plan to hold in-depth discussions for ways to continue not only inter-Korean talks but dialogue between North Korea and the international community including the United States.”It is a challenging task — in defiance of UN sanctions, the isolated and impoverished North last year staged its most powerful nuclear test and test-fired several missiles, some of them capable of reaching the US mainland.US President Donald Trump dubbed Kim “Little Rocket Man” and boasted about the size of his nuclear button, while the North Korean leader called Trump a “mentally deranged US dotard”.They traded threats of war and sent tensions soaring before a thaw in the run-up to the Winter Olympics, which were attended by athletes, cheerleaders and officials from the North, and the two Koreas fielded a unified women’s ice hockey team.last_img read more

US Judge likely to dismiss Stormy Daniels defamation suit

first_imgAdult-film actress Stephanie Clifford, also known as Stormy Daniels, poses for pictures at the end of her striptease show in Gossip Gentleman club in Long Island, New York, US on 23 February. Photo: ReutersA federal judge appeared poised Monday to toss out a defamation lawsuit against president Donald Trump by porn actress Stormy Daniels.Judge S James Otero said in US district court that a tweet the president wrote in April appears to be “rhetorical hyperbole” and speech protected under the First Amendment.Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, sued Trump in April after he said a composite sketch of a man she said threatened her in 2011 to keep quiet about an alleged affair with the real estate mogul was a “con job.”Trump tweeted that the man was “nonexistent” and that Daniels was playing the “fake news media for fools.” He retweeted a side-by-side photo comparing the sketch with a photo of Daniels’ husband.Otero said he would rule later, but that Trump’s statement seemed like an opinion and speech protected under the First Amendment.”To allow the complaint to go forward and to have one consider this to be defamatory in the context it was made would have a chilling effect,” Otero said.Attorney Ken White who blogs about the case and talks about it on the podcast “All the President’s Lawyers” said he thinks Otero wrote a tentative ruling that he would finalize and issue soon.If Daniels’ defamation case if thrown out it would be similar to a ruling by a New York state judge who dismissed a lawsuit by a political strategist who claimed her reputation was trashed when Trump falsely said she had “begged” for a campaign job and called her a “dummy” on Twitter, White said.”The court basically said, ‘It’s Trump, it’s Twitter, he known for throwing around insults and this can’t be understood as anything other than exaggerated rhetoric,'” White said of the New York case.Daniels’ lawyer, Michael Avenatti, said outside court that he would appeal if the defamation suit was dismissed. He said it was ironic that Trump was relied on the First Amendment to shield himself from legal trouble.”I witnessed something here today that I never thought I’d witness,” Avenatti said. “That is: Donald Trump having a lawyer stand up in a federal court and espouse on his behalf the virtues and how important the First Amendment is in America. This is the same Donald Trump that has crapped all over the First Amendment and the news media for years.”Otero scheduled a hearing 3 December to discuss Trump’s efforts to dismiss another lawsuit by Daniels over a hush-money agreement related to their alleged affair.Daniels sued Trump and his former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who negotiated the deal, so she could speak publicly about the sexual tryst without fear of reprisal. Cohen had threatened to sue her for $20 million.Lawyers for Trump and Cohen now say the deal that paid Daniels $130,000 to keep quiet was invalid and they won’t sue her for breaking it.Daniels has said she had sex once with Trump in 2006 and carried on a friendship with him for about a year.Daniels had said the agreement should be invalidated because Cohen signed it, but Trump didn’t.Trump’s attorney said the president never considered himself as a party to the agreement and doesn’t dispute Daniels’ assertion that the contract isn’t valid.While Trump and Cohen want the court to toss out the litigation as moot, Daniels’ lawyer wants to keep the case alive.Avenatti, who has frequently and aggressively criticized Trump in the news and has said he’s considering challenging him in the 2020 presidential race, wants to take testimony from Trump about whether the deal was inked to silence Daniels while he was running for president.Cohen has pleaded guilty to campaign finance violations for arranging payments to both Daniels and a former Playboy model to influence the election.Essential Consultants, the company Cohen set up to make the payment to Daniels, wants Daniels to return her $130,000 payment. Avenatti wants the defendants to pay his legal fees.Trump’s lawyer, Charles Harder, said he would ask Daniels to pay the president’s legal bills if he succeeds in killing the defamation suit.last_img read more

Does Carrying A Pistol Make You Safer

first_img Share Life-Changing And Traumatic: Darrell Standberry“I was parked at the pump right in front of the gas station. I exited my vehicle and before I could even get to the door of the gas station, the young man was already sitting in the driver’s seat of my vehicle,” says Standberry, who just earned a degree in green energy technology. He’d left his Yukon XL running with the key in the ignition.Darrell Standberry — from Detroit — shot and killed a 19-year-old who tried to steal his car.He says he told the young man to get out of his car. The young man told him to step back. That’s when Standberry says he saw the carjacker reach toward his pocket.Standberry unholstered his Sig Sauer .45, reached through the passenger-side window, and fired one shot. He hit the carjacker in the torso. Gravely wounded, the carjacker drove away, crashed into a tree and died. Police found a pistol in his pocket.“It changed a lot in my life,” he says. “Matter of fact, in my English class, I just did a report on it. I named it, ‘The incident that changed my life forever.’ “Standberry went to counseling. He became fearful of gas stations. And he carried the burden of killing a 19-year-old.“You know why? Because my son was 19 at the same time. It really bothered me that I had to take a 19-year-old’s life. His life was just beginning. But he was into the wrong things. To this day, I still ask God for forgiveness,” he says. For this story, I contacted firearms instructors and lawyers who reached out to dozens of handgun carriers who had pulled the trigger in self-defense. To my surprise, veryfew wanted to talk. Some had been arrested by the police or sued afterward, and had spent thousands of dollars on legal fees. They didn’t want to be dragged into the media spotlight again. Others were just traumatized by the whole experience.Gonville urges people to think long and hard before they carry a gun.“A lot of times I believe people are just playing around and they think it’s cool to have a gun,” she says. “It’s not just about being cool. It’s real life. Life and death is serious. Getting shot is serious. Shooting somebody is serious.”Is It Safer To Carry A Gun?An eye-opening Gallup poll released late last year revealed that 56 percent of respondents said they’d feel safer if more Americans could get permits to carry concealed handguns. Jennifer Carlson, a sociologist at the University of Toronto, wrote a book about handgun carriers in Michigan called Citizen–Protectors.“This is what I think is really fascinating,” she says. “It’s not just the idea of if I conceal carry then I’m safer. It’s the idea that if I just imagine there’s people out there who are conceal carrying then the world is safer.”All the trigger pullers I talked to for this story said the range time required to get a handgun license is grossly inadequate in terms of being prepared to defend themselves from an active shooter. They believe they’re alive today because they did extensive practice on their own.Mark Cortis, a veteran firearms instructor in Detroit, urges all of his CPL students to get more training. But he says hardly any of them ever do.“One of my concerns about the [Michigan] state requirements for getting a CPL is they don’t really include the tactics and the strategy that one will need to win or prevail in an actual gun situation,” Cortis says. “A hostile attack by a violent criminal is a fight.”Not only are most handgun carriers in America totally unprepared for a gunfight, but gun-control activists hasten to point out that more guns lead to more suicides and accidental shootings.Three years ago, Detroit’s new police chief, James Craig, made a startling public announcement. He encouraged law-abiding citizens to consider carrying concealed weapons as a deterrent to violent crime.In an interview, I asked Chief Craig if he ever worries about the citizens that he has urged to arm themselves?“What concerns me, more than anything else, is guns in the hands of criminals, guns in the hands of terror suspects. That’s what keeps me up at night. Not armed citizens,” Craig says.Meanwhile, Cortis reports so many Detroiters are seeking concealed pistol permits, classes are booked for two months out.Copyright 2016 NPR.

Caught In A Gunfight: Alaina GonvilleGonville is a mother of three, a big woman who works as a bouncer at a Detroit bar.Alaina Gonville works as a bouncer in Detroit. Gonville was shot after being approached by robbers outside a grocery store.Gonville was coming home from work late at night. She’d stopped at a store for a bottle of papaya juice. A scrawny guy walked up, pulled out a pistol and demanded her money. His accomplices were watching from a car behind him. As it happened, Alaina was carrying her pistol openly on her hip.“I’m assuming they saw my gun. That’s when they opened fire from their vehicle. I heard the gunshots coming at me. That’s when I pulled my gun and returned fire,” she says.She doesn’t know if she hit them or not. The robber bolted. His henchmen sped out of the parking lot, spraying Gonville and her car with military-grade bullets.“I got shot with an AK-47, and it basically blew my arm off. It was dangling. I carried it into the hospital. After four surgeries and a lot of prayer it’s healed about 70 percent,” she says.Did she think that having a handgun that night saved her life or endangered her more?“That’s a good question. I replayed the situation in my head over and over. I can’t say, but I’m glad I had it,” she says.center_img There is a pistol-packing revolution going on in America. Nearly 13 million Americans have permits to carry concealed handguns — triple the number just nine years ago — and that figure is low because not every state reports.It’s puzzling that so many Americans are choosing to arm themselves at a time when the FBI tells us violent crime and property crime have been falling dramatically for two decades.In search of handgun permit holders, I drove out to the Texas Firearms Festival, an outdoor gun extravaganza held near Austin where firearms fanciers get to shoot everything they see.“If you’re in Paris and you see people coming with AKs into your rock concert, that sucks. But it sucks worse if you’re unarmed,” says festival producer Robert Farago. “I’m not saying that being armed is gonna save your life, but at least you have an effective tool to mount some kind of defense.”High school counselor Janna Delany, who carries a Ruger LC9, is more concerned about crime than mass shootings.“It’s more just for me personally to give myself a little bit of peace of mind, somebody trying to carjack me or hold me up at a gas station or stopped at a red light or something,” Delany says.Retired Houston homicide detective Brian Foster has a booth at the festival where he sells “politically incorrect” books.“Police cannot take care of citizens,” he says. “They react after the fact. I spent many years dealing with cadavers.”How Does Carrying A Gun Change You?One thing is certain: Carrying around a loaded weapon and being prepared at a moment’s notice to use deadly force changes how people perceive their environment. Of the 20 handgun carriers I interviewed over several months, most of them say they’re more aware of how people look and how they act.“I pay attention to different people, weird people, maybe stereotype people,” says Sam Blackburn, a diesel mechanic from Georgetown, Texas, who attended the firearms fest in an NRA cap. He carries a 9 mm Smith & Wesson. What is he looking for, specifically?“Gangbanger-looking guys, maybe guys that look like they’re up to no good or somebody that may think they’re a Muslim extremist or something like that,” Blackburn says.Carrying a 2-pound steel appliance around like a cellphone doesn’t only change the way a person thinks, it changes the way they move.“It’s exciting. I won’t lie to you. There’s some visceral response that you get from carrying a firearm,” says Doug Miller. He owns a small IT company in Austin and teaches Israeli self-defense classes on the side. “But after about 30 seconds, it becomes, ‘Is this gonna be comfortable when I sit down? It’s digging into my hip because my car has upholstered seats. That’s really not that comfortable.’ “What Do Women Think About Guns?A Girl & A Gun is a women’s shooting league that started in Central Texas and has now gone national.Courtesy of A Girl and A GunRobyn Sandoval, executive director of A Girl & A Gun, aims a rifle.Executive Director Robyn Sandoval says carrying a handgun has become an extension of motherhood, a way to protect her children.“Family situational awareness is a big deal,” she says. “When we go to a restaurant, my 9-year-old [is thinking] who looks suspicious? What are people doing? What’s an anomaly. Let’s point out people in their cars. We make a game of it, of who can find somebody in their car just sitting there.”The gun girls talk about their firearms differently than men do. Guys speak of them as tools; these women talk about them like pets.“We name our guns,” Sandoval says, “I have Francesca, Dolly, Gracie. And we talk about ’em like, ‘I’m takin’ Gracie to the mall with us.’“My small one is my Baby,” says schoolteacher Bettylane Chambliss. “And my dad will say, ‘Do you have your gun with you?’ And I went, ‘Oh, yeah, I got Baby with me. I’m fine.’ “When Can You Pull The Trigger?Despite the pet names, there’s nothing casual about getting a license to carry a pistol.A gun in the home? The owner may have it primarily for hunting or target-shooting. A concealed gun out in public? It goes with the explicit understanding that the owner may kill someone they feel threatened by.Michael Cargill, a popular handgun instructor in Austin, had this to say: “You pull that gun out, your life is gonna change.” He’s right.Of the millions of Americans who get a concealed handgun permit, only a tiny fraction ever use them. Pro-gun folks compare it to a fire extinguisher in the home — you have it just in case.But what happens when someone actually fires their weapon in self-defense? I met three concealed handgun permit (CPL) holders in Detroit who pulled the trigger. In Trouble For Thwarting Shoplifters: Tatiana RodriguezBorn in Colombia, Rodriguez owns a small tree-trimming business in a Detroit suburb. Last October, she was outside a Home Depot loading some materials into her truck.“A lady comes screaming through the door for help, and somebody [was] running,” she says.A man was running into the parking lot pushing a shopping cart full of merchandise. Rodriguez used to work at Home Depot, and she knows the company policy: Don’t pursue shoplifters. But she says she thought this was more serious because a lady was screaming.She saw the shoplifters getting away in an SUV. She had her Heckler and Koch 9 mm.“So I take my gun out and I point at the car when he was coming towards us. I jump to the side and decide to shoot out the tires to stop them,” she says.In Michigan, it’s illegal for a citizen to use deadly force to stop a property crime. Rodriguez got 18 months of probation for reckless discharge of a weapon and had her gun license revoked. She thinks the punishment would have been harsher, but the cops caught the shoplifters after she shot out their tires.Her story got lots of news coverage. It turned into a case study of when not to use your pistol.“It was not my intention to do anything wrong. I was just trying to help somebody who really needed it. And it backfired on me. So what do you learn? It’s like you have to think a lot before you help somebody,” she says.last_img read more

US House Sends First Harvey Aid Bill To Trump – Despite No

first_imgShelby Knowles for The Texas TribuneThe United States Capitol in Washington, D.C. on June 7, 2017.The U.S. House approved $15 billion in aid to support those affected by Hurricane Harvey’s destruction in southeast Texas on Friday, sending the legislation to President Donald Trump’s desk for his signature. The funding is only meant to serve as a short-term measure, and a much more expansive bill is expected to be negotiated later in the fall. The aid was also part of a larger deal to avoid a government default and shutdown for the next three months.The measure passed the U.S. House 316-90. On Thursday, it passed the U.S. Senate 80-17. While both Texas senators, John Cornyn and Ted Cruz, voted for their chamber’s version on Thursday, not all 36 Texans in the U.S. House were on board. A handful of Texas Republicans – including Joe Barton of Ennis and Mac Thornberry of Clarendon – voted against the measure.Thornberry is chairman of the U.S. House Armed Services Committee and cited an aversion to short-term funding measures that he said harmed the military.Earlier in the week, the House approved an $8 billion stand-alone Harvey aid bill. The new bill, which mirrored the Senate measure, passed with Democratic and GOP support and was part of a deal Trump cut with House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer. Few Republicans were happy with that developmentThe Senate followed up by passing the bill, but expanding the short term aide to nearly $15 billion. Texans in Congress spent much of the week presenting a united front on Harvey aid. But the GOP members who appeared at a bipartisan news conference Thursday were largely from the Houston region.U.S. Rep. Brian Babin, R-Woodville, said in a statement after the vote that he reluctantly voted for the bill.“While I am extremely disappointed this relief package was tied to a short-term Continuing Resolution (CR) and debt ceiling increase – without any meaningful reforms – it is absolutely critical that these folks get the relief they so desperately need,” Babin said.

Elon Musk Names His First Tunneling Machine After a Classic

first_img Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global It’s safe to say at this point that Elon Musk has a fondness for offbeat names.In the case of the Tesla car models, it has gotten him into some trouble. Tesla makes three different vehicles, the Model S, the Model 3 and the Model X — which put together spell out S3X or SEX.Some Tesla owners didn’t quite get the joke, and thought that the Model 3 was an upgrade on the Model S, according to The Wall Street Journal.Related: Watch and Read the Transcript of Elon Musk’s ‘Boring’ TED TalkHowever, for his more recent venture, underground tunneling initiative The Boring Company, Musk opted to go for a slightly higher brow choice for the name of its first tunneling machine.Naming theme for tunnel boring machines will be poems & plays.

Photos from presidential elections round 1 Updated

first_imgAfter a long day with lots of stats and figures, a picture is worth a thousand words so let’s have a look at some of today’s developments in photos. If some candidates appear more than others, it purely coincidental and based on photographic appeal.  There’s no order of preference.President Nicos Anastasiades and Akel backed independent Stavros Malas have passed on to the second round of elections with a marginal difference. They were greeted at their respective campaign headquarters amidst cheers, chants and rounds of handshakes.Meanwhile, Malas’ HQ were equally loud and cheery, particularly as polls were indecisive as to whether he or his rival Diko leader and candidate Nicolas Papadopoulos would make it to the second roundMalas with his wife and Androulla Vassiliou, wife of former President George Vassiliou on either side of himMalas trying to get through the crowdAbstention rate has been high and reports from polling stations suggest that turnout has largely been comprised of the older generation of voters, given youth apathy about the elections.Communications teams must have really stressed the importance of attending with children. Perhaps it will warm voters’ hearts. This is incumbent President Nicos Anastasiades surrounded by his grandchildren.Anastasiades gives the thumbs up in what he hopes is prophetic for Sunday’s second and final roundLadies first? Not for Diko leader and candidate Nicolas Papadopoulos apparentlyMalas’ wife casts her vote as someone holds on to the ballot box for some reason.Shout out for Disy leader Averof Neophytou who held his wife Maria’s handCitizens’ Alliance leader Giorgos Lillikas and his wife have strangely pained smiles right before they vote. Any guesses whose name they ticked?Anastasiades nailing his side smile speaking from presidential palace after results revealed he was going to the second roundChurch CEO – oops, sorry Archbishop Chrysostomos had to cast his vote and say the church will support whoever is electedIndependent Akel backed candidate Stavros Malas poses like a poster boyThe rule stipulating not more than one person can enter a booth was violated by candidates because kids always look good for the cameras. Papadopoulos wasn’t the only one to be fair though, Anastasiades did the same thingThis woman apparently asked Anastasiades for help to renovate her house.
