  • 7 Things I Learned Reading Every Issue Of ISIS's Magazine ... Sun Tzu, generally considered a reliable source on Good War Ideas, said something along the lines of, "You've got to know your enemy in order to beat him, because some dudes hate being kicked in the junk and others seem to enjoy it." The difficulty we've had defeating ISIS suggests that, maybe, we don't really understand who and what the fuck they are. Everything we hear is filtered through politicians and pundits, each with their own agenda ("You know what ISIS is afraid of? Me, Donald Goddamned Trump!"). Fortunately, it turns out that finding out what ISIS wants is like finding out what a vegan eats: They'll tell you . Which is to say that ISIS has a magazine. No, really. It's an actual glossy, full-color magazine called Dabiq, complete with feature articles and photo spreads. So, in the interest of understanding just what makes these violent lunatics tick, I read through 700-plus pages of this oddly well-put-together propaganda and learned ... #7. The Islamic State's Official Publication Is Pretty Slick Maybe it's not surprising that the Islamic State has a regular periodical: Every crazy group of violent assholes in the world has some sort of leaflet or zine they publish. But Dabiq, the ISIS equivalent of Time mixed with People and a Chick tract, is something very different. ISIS I read every single issue. That's a pretty darn competent (if simple) Photoshop of the Vatican flying an ISIS flag. Every issue runs 60 to 80 pages, all of them in color and all of them laid out with clear skill and experience in graphic design. A lot of it's what you'd expect, like scripture-dense articles quoting the angriest verses of various holy books to make an insane point: ISIS But it also features fawning People Magazine-like spreads of "celebrities," a word which, for the Islamic State, means dead suicide bombers and insurgents. ISIS Note the American rifle in his hands. That'll come up later. Most articles start with a solid two or three paragraphs of "all this happened only by God's will," "praise Allah for granting us victory," etc. ... but there's also a regular series of columns by a British journalist, John Cantlie [1] , imprisoned by the Islamic State since 2012. They're ... weird reads, to say the least. Cantlie's clearly been edited in places, but a lot of the frustration and anger he spews toward British and American foreign policy at least seems genuine. Who knows, though? ISIS Cantlie regularly praises the intelligence of the Islamic State's leadership, but he also regularly calls them terrorists and refers to their horrific actions without being edited. Likewise, ISIS is only too happy to post the angry speeches of American politicians for their readers to study. "In The Words Of The Enemy" is a regular feature: ISIS Which narrowly beat out "LOL, U MAD?" Over the course of reading through 700-ish pages of ISIS propaganda, I learned a few things about their vocabulary: "Crusader" is the title for every Western soldier, civilian, and politician, regardless of party or nation. Obama and John McCain are both "Crusaders." Another big word is "Hijrah," which basically means "packing up your shit and moving to join the Islamic State." Every issue includes multiple reminders that ISIS considers Hijrah a duty for all non-apostate Muslims. ISIS Wait ... look at the row of pictures on the left, third one down. Is that a fucking dead guy in their otherwise idyllic ad trying to convince people to join them? Yeah, as it turns out ... #6. They Are Very Honest About Some Things Most propaganda endeavors to make one's enemies appear as ugly and brutal as possible while portraying one's own side as shining and blameless. The Islamic State does not do this. For one thing, their fawning ads about various jihadis don't show only happy pictures ... they almost always include a picture of the man's corpse. ISIS [2] Basically every story ends this way. ISIS also doesn't shy away from showing off their own nightmarish brutality: On top of being OK with the "terrorist" label, there are many, many pictures in the magazine of captives they've beheaded, mass graves filled with massacred civilians, and tons of explosion porn. This stark honesty about the physical realities of the war they are waging surprised me for a while. Eventually, after dozens of articles, I started to understand: Every story of some terrorist attack or execution started with "thanks be to Allah for this" or some comment about how the tragedy was part of the "perfect will" of Allah. It's the same thing as the Westboro Baptist Church praising hurricanes and IEDs because, if God is all-powerful, then even awful and ugly things are God's will and, thus, to be celebrated. That's why every picture of jihadis at the site of some battle or terrorist attack has them pointing up at the sky: ISIS "Uh, no thanks." -God The warriors of ISIS are proud to be terrorists and proud to be brutal. And learning this has made the Internet crusade to convince people to call them "Daesh" seem extra dumb. Google Daesh is an acronym for the original name ISIS fought under before declaring their "caliphate" (a formal religious-led Islamic state) and, so the argument goes, they just hate it when you call them that. But from what I can tell, ISIS doesn't seem to care much about that themselves. On Page 38 of Issue 4, they note that some Westerners call them Daesh matter-of-factly, without seeming to care much about it either way. It's never brought up again and barely comes off as an annoyance within the context of the article. "They even imitated the nusayriyyah and secularist opposition by labelling the Islamic State as 'Daesh' and 'Tandhim ad-Dawlah,' in a manner precisely mimicking the satellite channels and palace scholars of Al Salul and Qat ..." Attention Internet: People who celebrate pictures of civilians they've killed as well as pictures of their own friend's murdered corpses don't give a shit what you call them. I've heard it said that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom-fighter. But the folks at ISIS don't consider "freedom" a good thing (they refer to themselves as "slaves of Allah" on virtually every page), and they are happy calling themselves "Soldiers of Terror" ... ISIS [3] Reminder: They put this image and title together. At the same time, it's inaccurate to picture them as slavering bands of psychotic crazies, because ... #5. They Are Unbelievably Media-Savvy The PR wing of ISIS, the Al-Hayat Media Center, understands social media at least as well as their counterparts in the U.S. Army. Part of this comes down to the fact that they're well-informed: Their "In The Words Of The Enemy" column quotes American politicians extensively and shows a clear understanding of current events. They've gotten very good at using Twitter to organize, as well as to spread their message: ISIS Except for the whole "#HASHTAG" thing. Members of ISIS use Twitter to recruit soldiers [4] , as well as wives [5] ; they target young and vulnerable kids in a similar manner as sexual predators. (Likely because many of them are sexual predators.) ISIS's media team also puts together a series of slick videos all aimed at convincing young people to undertake Hijrah and journey to the Islamic State. The most confusing part of reading Dabiq is seeing all this tech savvy on display with straight-up medieval barbarism. Take this ad for a video that features a man's execution ... complete with instructions for how to play it on VLC. ISIS Poor VLC. You never wanted this. Note how that video's in a shitload of languages? So is Dabiq, the magazine itself, and the English in it is extremely good. ISIS is operating a multilingual recruitment campaign that has so far succeeded in winning them at least 25,000 foreign fighters [6] and probably many more. Dabiq regularly prints advice for would-be recruits trying to make their way to the caliphate: "So do not say to yourself, 'I will never succeed in my Hijrah.' Most of those who have tried, have successfully reached the Khilafah. Amongst them are those who travelled by land, sometimes on foot, from country to country, crossing border after border, and Allah brought them safely to the Khilafah." ISIS "Shirk" is probably their favorite word. It shows up in every single issue, often dozens of times. They also regularly urge "true" Muslims who aren't able to physically join the Islamic State to go out and murder a "crusader" near them. Sometimes this call to action works, as with the two men [7] who attempted to shoot up that Draw Mohammed event (they received a full spread in Dabiq, despite failing to hurt anyone). When these calls end in horrific bloodshed, like last week's attack in Paris, many people's natural instinct is to say, "IF THE FUCKERS WANT TO DIE LET'S GO OVER THERE AND KILL 'EM!" But Dabiq makes it incredibly clear that ... #4. Violent Reprisals Are Exactly What They Want Every issue of Dabiq begins with the same quote: "The spark has been lit here in Iraq, and its heat will continue to intensify -- by Allah's permission -- until it burns the crusader armies in Dabiq." And here's where the magazine gets its name. ISIS Dabiq is an area in Northern Syria where, according to prophecy, Allah will do the whole "pillar of salt" thing on the armies of the West. For that to happen, we need to actually put our armies in Dabiq first. One thing reading 11 issues of Dabiq makes very clear is that ISIS considers a future U.S.-led invasion to be inevitable . They view the regional powers around them as destined to fall and, when that happens, in rides Uncle Sam and out pops the apocalypse. Within the context of ISIS propaganda, being killed by a hellfire rocket isn't a bad thing. And for the thousands and thousands of fighters who willingly flock to their banner, it's the only expected outcome of that choice. The fanatics who signed up to fight are eager to die. Meanwhile, the civilians stuck where the Islamic State operates have to live through this nightmare, described by imprisoned columnist John Cantlie (and whoever is editing him): ISIS Same guy from earlier. "There was a heavy airstrike some time ago in the dead of night and I promise that you don't sit there thinking, 'Hurray, it's the United States Air Force.' As the doors shake on their hinges and the walls bulge momentarily inward from the shockwaves, you become incandescent with fury. For 20 minutes afterwards there are the sounds of babies crying in fear, mothers trying to soothe their children, and sirens as casualties are taken to hospital. It's a side to 'precision' bombing that you never see back in the West." But while ISIS fighters consider a U.S. invasion fulfillment of prophecy and their own deaths a given, something does worry their top brass ...

  • American Military honored in October and November The month of October celebrates the birthday of the Navy. This year the Navy turn s 240-years-old. The Navy was established by the Continental Congress on October 13, 1775 to search for munition ships supplying the British Army stationed in America. The Navy fleet consisted of approximately 50 ships over the course of the war. Also, the Navy celebrates Navy Day sponsored by the Navy League in 1922 to be observed on October 27th in honor of President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1972, Admiral Zumwalt, Chief of Naval Operations, recognized October 13th as the Navy s birthday to enhance a greater appreciation of our Navy heritage, and to provide a positive influence toward pride and professionalism in the naval service (Nov. 2015 Military [1] .com) YanceyMediaConsultants Tuskegee Airmen Thomas Pitts, Pitts Family African American s have fought in every war and conflict since the beginning of the United States of America. They have always been at the forefront of the fight for America against tyranny, oppression and bullying. Highlighted here are a few African American military men and women who bravely fought in American Wars. Admiral Michelle Janine Howard - Admiral Howard was the first African American female Admiral in the United States Navy. She is the 38th Vice Chief of Naval Operations. She was the first African American woman to achieve a three star rank. She was the first African American woman to command a U.S. Navy ship, the USS Rushmore. She was the first Admiral selected from the U.S. Naval class of 1982. She was the first female graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy selected for flag rank. She was the first woman to become a four star admiral. She is the first African American and the first woman to hold the post of Vice Chief of Naval Operations. Admiral Howard served in the Persian Gulf War. In addition, this extraordinary Admiral s real life heroism, excellence, and bravery is documented in the movie Captain Phillips where her mission was to bring Captain Phillips back unharmed after being high jacked and taken hostage. Through Admiral Howard s diligence, Captain Phillips was rescued (NavyNewsService, 2012). On October 30, 2015 Admiral Michelle Janine Howard received the Medal of Honor presented by the Union League of Philadelphia. Private First Class Milton Olive III an African American soldier was still only 18-years-of-age, when he heroically gave his life to save four of his fellow soldiers. On October 27, 1965 during the Vietnam War, Pvt. Olive was in the jungles of Pho Cuong with four fellow soldiers when a grenade was thrown in their path. Pvt. Olive quickly grabbed the grenade, stuffed it in his shirt and covered it with his body taking the full blast and saving the other four solders. For his bravery, Pvt. Olive received, posthumously the Medal of Honor. The four men whose lives he saved that day in Vietnam are, Platoon Leader Vince Yrineo, who keeps a piece of Pvt. Olive s dog tag. Lionel Hubbard for the most part has moved on. He stated, I didn t lose anything over there. Jimmy Stanford has found God. And John Foster is still struggling with race issues concerning African Americans (Corregidor Historical society, 1999-2011). On this day, we honor all veteran s both living and dead and we thank them for their selfless sacrifices. References ^ Military (www.examiner.com)

  • Army finally says sorry to major's wife who lost her baby after she was ordered to fly home from Kenya against medical advice Couple claim army orders to fly back to UK killed their unborn baby Katherine Howe, 40, said she was the daughter she had 'longed for' It has taken five years for the army to apologise for the traumatic time But the pair say this is not enough - and are considering legal action | View comments The Army has apologised to a major's wife who claims they killed her unborn baby - after she suffered a miscarriage 'because she was ordered to fly against medical advice'. Katherine Howe, 40, was living as a military ex-pat in Kenya, where her husband David, 38, was stationed, when she fell pregnant with her second child. During the pregnancy she suffered a bleed and was advised by Kenyan doctors to get some rest and not fly. Katherine Howe with her two sons, Johnny, three, and William, seven But, despite the warning, the family claim they were forced to take an eight-hour flight home because the army feared a possible lawsuit should Mrs Howe miscarry in Kenya. And they believe the stress resulted in Mrs Howe suffering a stillbirth in 2011 - and hold the British Army responsible for the death of the baby girl they longed for. Now, after a five year battle for answers, the army has apologised unreservedly for its part - despite the official time limit for complaints to be resolved being 24 weeks. Mrs Howe, of Calne, Wiltshire, said: 'The army has blood on its hands, but it just marched away, closed ranks and washed its hands of us. 'It would have meant the world to us to have a little girl. She was so longed-for, but I never got to hold my daughter. 'Through all of this I haven't had the opportunity to grieve for my child.' She believes the apology is worthless because it is faceless, and is now considering suing for damages. She said: 'The Army needs to be held accountable. 'They have "marked their own homework" and in our case awarded themselves top marks.' On the day of the flight, 22 weeks into her pregnancy, Katherine had a third bleed and was admitted to hospital where her waters later broke. After a gruelling 12-hours in labour, at 1am on August 29 2011, she gave birth to a lifeless child. The couple named the little girl Harriet. Mrs Howe said: 'I remember the nurse holding up this tiny, fully formed little girl to me. I touched her forehead and said goodbye.' The baby's body was put in a plastic orange waste bag and placed on a metal trolley. It was later dumped in hospital waste. Katherine Howe with her husband David, and sons William, seven, and Johnny, three The couple have said an apology from the Army is not enough and are considering suing for damages Staff at the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK), had been anxious that the pregnancy could go wrong and were 'very cleverly trying to cover their own backs', the Howes said. The family had previously been told that pregnancy and child-birth in Kenya was problem-free and that healthcare was good. But a list of worst-case scenarios was presented to the couple at a meeting - risks they had never been made aware of before - to frighten them into returning home. When they objected, civilian medic Dr John Ross, of BATUK, allegedly threatened to have David removed from his post so he would have no choice. However the following day, a senior staff officer ordered the couple to take an eight-hour flight home. They had no choice but to obey under military law. Mrs Howe said: 'The officer said my risk was high, but the risk to the Army was higher.' The couple and their son William, now seven, were forced to abandon their lives in Nanyuki within 48 hours. A few days after Mrs Howe gave birth, the couple received a brief text message from BATUK doctor, Dr Ross, to say he was sorry for their loss. But Kenyan practitioner Dr Dhadialla said that, in his opinion, had the army not interfered, Katherine would have gone on to have a full-term pregnancy. Katherine Howe claims she was ordered on a flight with husband David (above) despite medical warnings Devastated Katherine, who has since had a second son, Johnny, now three, said: 'They ignored the real medical problem of me being so stressed and anxious over it all. 'They kept insisting that stress had no bearing on pregnancy, but it did. My stress levels went through the roof. 'I suffered bleeds when I was pregnant with Johnny, but he is here now and he's perfectly healthy. 'It keeps me awake at night. 'It was clear the army was putting its interests ahead of ours. We didn't feel as though our needs as a family or that of the baby mattered.' A report by the army Board of the Defence Council, the Army found that the support the Howes received 'lacked compassion' and was 'not at the standard it should have been'. It concluded that the family had been 'wronged' and as a result issued an 'unreserved apology' in response to the 'tragic events'. David Howe has said his wife Katherine was like a 'tickling time bomb' in the eyes of the Army For Mr Howe, an Afghanistan veteran, speaking out against the Army is against protocol and threatens his career - but he is desperate to expose what has happened. He said: 'Kate was like a ticking time bomb to them.' Mrs Howe added: 'Throughout this, I have had no voice. I feel absolutely scared stiff to be standing up to the establishement. 'My husband is petrified. But we feel that we have got to do this. Our quest now is to give military wives a voice. 'They have learnt absolutely diddly squat from what I have endured. Their policy leaves this wide open for this exact same thing to happen all over again.' She added: 'I'm screaming for the army to listen and take this seriously. I want it to listen to how this has affected my family.' An Army spokesman said: 'While we cannot comment on individual cases, we can be clear that soldiers and their families continue to receive outstanding medical care both in the UK and when deployed overseas. 'As this case could be subject to further action, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.'

  • BAE Systems bid provides glimpse into the future of Britain’s battle tanks In service since 1998, the British Army's Challenger 2 main battle tank is reaching middle age, and the Ministry of Defence is looking to extend its life until 2025. BAE Systems originally built the Challenger 2 and has put in a bid for replacing many of the key systems, which gives us a look at what the British tank of the next decade could look like. Originally conceived during the Cold War days of the 1980s as a replacement for the Challenger 1, the Challenger 2 is in service with the British Army and the Royal Army of Oman. Though it had previously been used in peacekeeping missions, it first saw combat during the 2003 invasion of Iraq, where it gained a reputation for survivability thanks in part to its Chobham armor. No Challenger was lost in battle and some survived up to 70 rocket grenade hits in a single action only to go back into service in a matter of hours. The challenge for the British Army is deciding what comes next. Back in 2001, with the Cold War behind and 9/11 still ahead, the government had no strategy about what to do when it came time to replace the Challenger 2. What would replace them? Would their life be extended? Would they be replaced at all? Was it time to rethink armor strategy altogether? This changed with the 2015 Strategic Defence and Security Review, which identified the new Russian T-14 Armata main battle tank as a serious potential threat and stated that Challenger's L30A1 120 mm rifled gun was now obsolescent. Since the Challenger 2 was still a highly effective vehicle, and the economics of replacing over 400 tanks that originally cost 4,217,000 each was prohibitive in an age of austerity and political uncertainty, the Ministry of Defence decided to upgrade the existing tanks and began soliciting bids. The goal of the upgrade program is to extend the life of the Challenger 2 to 2025 and to replace key technology systems with more advanced designs. The BAE Systems bid, which includes seven partners, is likely to be one of several proposals and could change before the final selection, but it gives an idea of what the tomorrow's main battle tank could look like. Since the armor and powerplant of the Challenger 2 are already top tier, the upgrades envisioned by BAE and its partner companies focus on more turret-based technologies. For example, the Commander's primary sight will provide a 360 view of the vicinity and the ability to electronically hand off targets to the gunner. In addition, it will integrate with a new thermal imaging system for day and night surveillance and target engagement that the company says will allow for 24-hour operations. Another upgrade is the gun control system, which moves the turret and aims the gun under the command of the fire control system. BAE says the new systems will improve speed and accuracy while future-proofing the technology. The Challenger 2's subsystems will be controlled by a new electronic architecture that includes a new Commander's crew station, as well as the capacity to easily expand and allow for new interfaces, reconfigurable displays, and controls. BAE says that if it wins the contract, the Challenger 2 Mark 2 standard will be converted at the General Dynamics' factory in South Wales.

  • Bloodhound SSC: Inspiring the next generation of Engineers Pt 1 ... BloodhoundSSC Major Oli Morgan is the Team Leader for the Army s involvement in the Bloodhound SuperSonic Car project. As an Aircraft Engineering Officer in the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, his technical background on Apache is used to good effect to provide the Bloodhound team with technical advice on Engineering Assurance. In addition to his engineering role, he is also responsible for recruiting each six-month attachment of personnel and managing the team on a day-to-day basis.

    Bloodhound SSC mixes jet engines with children and live circuits Last month the Bloodhound SSC team tested a Typhoon development jet engine using the electronic control system destined for the supersonic car. The test was held at Rolls Royce s test facility and proved the system developed by Joe Holdsworth and REME Avionics WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin worked as designed. Joe Holdsworth stands next to the EJ200 engine that will be used in the Bloodhound Super Sonic Car.

    By Stefan Marjoram The unlikely grouping of a former financial software programmer and an Army Avionics Instructor has proven a winning combination. Joe Holdsworth has developed the code with Mark Edwin bringing the concept into reality, building prototype electronics from his knowledge of military aircraft. The pair have created a control system the size of a sandwich box that has allowed the Bloodhound team to control the EJ200 engine as if were wrapped up in an aircraft.

    The development has been no mean feat and has relied on the advice of Rolls Royce technical experts to get around the aircraft engine looking for airspeed, temperature and pressure inputs it s been a challenging project but the pair have been hugely successful. Watch the engine being tested at http://youtu.be/PBJLxSkBNes 1 WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin makes final adjustments to the EJ200 control circuits. By Major Oli Morgan 135,000 horse power So, why is this box of tricks so important?

    The Bloodhound SSC team are using one of the smallest most powerful jet engines of its type to get a competitive advantage in order to propel the eight-tonne British Land Speed contender though the sound barrier and beyond. The control system is needed to allow driver (Wg Cdr Andy Green) to throttle the jet engine in conjunction with a bespoke High Test Peroxide Rocket 2 to get Bloodhound SSC to break through the supersonic barrier in South Africa in 2014. The combined power of the jet and rocket system is equivalent to 135,000 hp, six times greater than all of this season s Formula 1 cars on the starting grid!

    Rolls Royce s Colin Smith and Bloodhound SSC Director Richard Noble OBE. By Stefan Marjoram WO2 (AQMS) Mark Edwin has now handed the electronics baton over to SSgt Henry H Breed who was with the newly arrived REME team at Rolls Royce s announcement of their involvement in the project. Colin Smith, Director of Engineering and Technology set out that that Rolls Royce would provide financial and technical support as well as 50 educational ambassadors to support Bloodhound SSC s aim to inspire the next generation of kids into careers in STEM.

    Big Bang Fair At the event I got talking about the way the programming language worked with the EJ200 engine; SSgt H Breed joked that the system could be taken one step further and integrated with a motion controller. This confirmed something that has interested me for sometime the successful control system could be connected to something like an Xbox Kinect to turn the engine on with the wave of a hand. Now I must caveat that the team will be providing Andy Green with a throttle lever, which is much more physical, but it does illustrate the massive potential of technology with a little programming and electronics knowledge.

    That evening my curiosity got the better of me and I spent a night reading more about motion sensing software to find that there are far more kids experimenting with Kinect technology than I had thought! This fact was reinforced at the Big Bang Fair with thousands of engaged kids mad about science and engineering and Bloodhound was there in force with the full sized show car as well as the entire REME team. Motion sensor technology was on display as were robots made by school kids and every kind of science of note was the group from Welbeck Defence Sixth Form College who delivered a super remote controlled all-terrain vehicle and are off to carve out careers in the MoD when they graduate.

    Welbeck Students with REME SSgt Neil Gallagher. Reflecting on Big bang Fair and the Rolls Royce announcement it was evident that there is serious interest in the technology and a sense that young people are much closer to the digital world i.e mobile devices than ever before and they are not scared to experiment. Bloodhound Educational Ambassadors David Willetts MP with kids at the Bloodhound SSC stand at the Big Bang Fair.

    Copyright Harry Dalton The Manufacturer The exam question is: how we harness young people s natural interest in technology and point them towards a career in engineering or science? Seeing the effect of the Bloodhound project on kids who came up to us on the stand in London convinced me that the work the Bloodhound Educational Ambassadors are doing is making a difference the kids knew more about the car than the teachers/parents they dragged over. Next blog (part two) will be straight after this one to make up for a bit of a delay.

    I will introduce the new REME team and the exciting work they be doing as the Bloodhound car comes together in the new Bloodhound Technical Centre in Avonmouth, Bristol. .

  • British Army apologises to major's wife who lost baby after being ordered to fly home Couple claim army orders to fly back to UK killed their unborn baby Katherine Howe, 40, said she was the daughter she had 'longed for' It has taken five years for the army to apologise for the traumatic time But the pair say this is not enough - and are considering legal action | View comments The Army has apologised to a major's wife who claims they killed her unborn baby - after she suffered a miscarriage 'because she was ordered to fly against medical advice'. Katherine Howe, 40, was living as a military ex-pat in Kenya, where her husband David, 38, was stationed, when she fell pregnant with her second child. During the pregnancy she suffered a bleed and was advised by Kenyan doctors to get some rest and not fly. Katherine Howe with her two sons, Johnny, three, and William, seven But, despite the warning, the family claim they were forced to take an eight-hour flight home because the army feared a possible lawsuit should Mrs Howe miscarry in Kenya. And they believe the stress resulted in Mrs Howe suffering a stillbirth in 2011 - and hold the British Army responsible for the death of the baby girl they longed for. Now, after a five year battle for answers, the army has apologised unreservedly for its part - despite the official time limit for complaints to be resolved being 24 weeks. Mrs Howe, of Calne, Wiltshire, said: 'The army has blood on its hands, but it just marched away, closed ranks and washed its hands of us. 'It would have meant the world to us to have a little girl. She was so longed-for, but I never got to hold my daughter. 'Through all of this I haven't had the opportunity to grieve for my child.' She believes the apology is worthless because it is faceless, and is now considering suing for damages. She said: 'The Army needs to be held accountable. 'They have "marked their own homework" and in our case awarded themselves top marks.' On the day of the flight, 22 weeks into her pregnancy, Katherine had a third bleed and was admitted to hospital where her waters later broke. After a gruelling 12-hours in labour, at 1am on August 29 2011, she gave birth to a lifeless child. The couple named the little girl Harriet. Mrs Howe said: 'I remember the nurse holding up this tiny, fully formed little girl to me. I touched her forehead and said goodbye.' The baby's body was put in a plastic orange waste bag and placed on a metal trolley. It was later dumped in hospital waste. Katherine Howe with her husband David, and sons William, seven, and Johnny, three The couple have said an apology from the Army is not enough and are considering suing for damages Staff at the British Army Training Unit Kenya (BATUK), had been anxious that the pregnancy could go wrong and were 'very cleverly trying to cover their own backs', the Howes said. The family had previously been told that pregnancy and child-birth in Kenya was problem-free and that healthcare was good. But a list of worst-case scenarios was presented to the couple at a meeting - risks they had never been made aware of before - to frighten them into returning home. When they objected, civilian medic Dr John Ross, of BATUK, allegedly threatened to have David removed from his post so he would have no choice. However the following day, a senior staff officer ordered the couple to take an eight-hour flight home. They had no choice but to obey under military law. Mrs Howe said: 'The officer said my risk was high, but the risk to the Army was higher.' The couple and their son William, now seven, were forced to abandon their lives in Nanyuki within 48 hours. A few days after Mrs Howe gave birth, the couple received a brief text message from BATUK doctor, Dr Ross, to say he was sorry for their loss. But Kenyan practitioner Dr Dhadialla said that, in his opinion, had the army not interfered, Katherine would have gone on to have a full-term pregnancy. Katherine Howe claims she was ordered on a flight with husband David (above) despite medical warnings Devastated Katherine, who has since had a second son, Johnny, now three, said: 'They ignored the real medical problem of me being so stressed and anxious over it all. 'They kept insisting that stress had no bearing on pregnancy, but it did. My stress levels went through the roof. 'I suffered bleeds when I was pregnant with Johnny, but he is here now and he's perfectly healthy. 'It keeps me awake at night. 'It was clear the army was putting its interests ahead of ours. We didn't feel as though our needs as a family or that of the baby mattered.' A report by the army Board of the Defence Council, the Army found that the support the Howes received 'lacked compassion' and was 'not at the standard it should have been'. It concluded that the family had been 'wronged' and as a result issued an 'unreserved apology' in response to the 'tragic events'. David Howe has said his wife Katherine was like a 'tickling time bomb' in the eyes of the Army For Mr Howe, an Afghanistan veteran, speaking out against the Army is against protocol and threatens his career - but he is desperate to expose what has happened. He said: 'Kate was like a ticking time bomb to them.' Mrs Howe added: 'Throughout this, I have had no voice. I feel absolutely scared stiff to be standing up to the establishement. 'My husband is petrified. But we feel that we have got to do this. Our quest now is to give military wives a voice. 'They have learnt absolutely diddly squat from what I have endured. Their policy leaves this wide open for this exact same thing to happen all over again.' She added: 'I'm screaming for the army to listen and take this seriously. I want it to listen to how this has affected my family.' An Army spokesman said: 'While we cannot comment on individual cases, we can be clear that soldiers and their families continue to receive outstanding medical care both in the UK and when deployed overseas. 'As this case could be subject to further action, it would be inappropriate to comment further at this time.' SHARE PICTURE

  • British Army Hermes 450 UAS Exceed 70,000 Flight Hours in ... Hermes 450 (H-450) unmanned air system The British Army s Hermes 450 (H-450) unmanned air systems have completed over 70,000 hours of surveillance support in Afghanistan. This is the equivalent of 8 years of non-stop flying. Operated by the Theatre Integrated Unmanned Air Systems (ThIUAS) Battery at Camp Bastion, UK forces have clocked up more flying hours than any other nation with H-450 in Afghanistan.

    The system provides headquarters staff with persistent intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition and reconnaissance via electro-optical and infrared sensors out to a range of 150 kilometres. H-450 can be used for a wide range of tasks such as reconnaissance of an area prior to operations, and maintaining watch over troops on the ground. Major Jonathan Buxton, ThIUAS Battery Commander, said: It is a great achievement to have reached over 70,000 hours of flying with Hermes 450 which shows not only the importance of the benefits it provides but also the dedication of all those involved in operating them out here in difficult conditions.

    H-450 has been a vital tool for operations in Helmand over the years and continues to provide persistent surveillance protecting UK and Afghan troops today. The ThIUAS Battery operates 5 surveillance windows of H-450 in support of UK and Afghan troops in Helmand province an increase from 2 when H-450 was introduced in 2007. Since that time, integration with ground forces has been developed significantly as has the training for H-450 operators.

    Major Buxton added: The UAS trade offers something different for the more technically minded recruits joining the Army today.

    The H-450 operators course is extremely challenging, with junior soldiers taking on a lot of responsibility at an early stage, especially when looking after the equipment and being responsible for captaincy of the aircraft.

  • British Army takes remote-control of Terrier, the digging-est dog of war The British Army has taken ownership of its first Terrier combat engineer vehicle, which maker BAE Systems claims is the most advanced of its type. The armored vehicle has been described as a Swiss Army Knife for the battlefield, capable of clearing routes or creating cover. Perhaps most significantly, the Terrier is drive-by-wire, and can be controlled remotely with a device very much like a console game pad.

    Terrier's main trick appears to be moving stuff out of the way (or strategically into the way), be it clearing routes or digging trenches for troops on the ground, or hollowing out anti-tank ditches and offensive armored vehicle positions. It's equipped with a hydraulic front bucket and an excavating arm for just such purposes. A "quick-hitch" mechanism allows both the bucket and the excavator to be replaced with other attachments.

    The bucket can be switched to a forklift-type appendage, a "ripper" (to break up roads), or a device capable of clearing mines placed on roads. Alternatives to the excavator include a drill and a gripping, lifting attachment. Terrier's drive-by-wire system means the vehicle is controlled through electronics rather than mechanics.

    Its tracks can be controlled by a pair of joysticks (or thumbsticks) and the digging systems can be operated through Terrier's computer systems. By using five onboard cameras to see, Terrier can be controlled remotely at a range of up to 1 km (0.6 miles) using a device much like a games console control pad, which BAE Systems claims makes control straightforward for new recruits to pick up. The company has also developed full-motion simulators to train onboard crews of two.

    Terrier is equipped with environmental comfort controls and thermal imaging, which supposedly make Terrier suitable for day and night operations in desert or arctic conditions. The vehicle isn't entirely defenseless either, mounted as it is with a machine gun and smoke grenade launcher. Its weight of 32 tonnes makes it transportable by an Airbus A400M 1 or Boeing C-17 Globemaster military transport aircraft.

    Once on the ground, the Terrier can travel at a maximum speed of 70 km/h (43 mph). On the road, it has a range of 600 km (370 miles). The British Army is taking ownership of 60 Terriers, the last of which is due for delivery in January.

    Here's a BAE Systems video of Terrier in action.

  • British Army's new cannon takes its ammo on the side The British Army has taken delivery of its first completely new cannon system in 50 years and it loads sideways. This loading system on the new 40mm Cased Telescoped Cannon System, which was handed over to the British Ministry of Defence (MoD) in Bourges, France by CTA International (CTAI), is claimed to provide more firepower while saving space. According to BAE Systems, which is a 50/50 partner in CTAI along with Nexter Systems, the delivery is the first of 515 40mm cannons for the British Army's Warrior and Ajax armored fighting vehicles. The new system has been in development since the 1990s and has undergone extensive testing. The key to the new 40 mm gun is its Cased Telescoped ammunition. Instead of using traditional bullet-shaped rounds with the projectile upfront and a cannister of propellant behind, Cased Telescoped ammunition consists of a straight tube with the projectile inside the tube completely surrounded by propellant and a plug in front that provides a gas-tight seal to drag the shell along. BAE says that this gives the shell four times the power of the previous 30 mm round. Currently, the Cased Telescoped rounds are available in armor piercing and training forms, but a practice tracer round, general purpose round-point penetrating, programmable airburst, and anti-aircraft rounds are under development. As to the cannon itself, it uses a new rotating breech system, where the rounds are loaded at a 90-degree angle to the barrel, then rotated into firing position. Loading a new round ejects the spent tube outside the vehicle and the rotating breech allows for significant savings in space. The new 40 mm cannon takes up about the same space as the 30 mm it replaces, and allows more storage space for additional ammunition and more cabin space for the crew. "This next-generation cannon has been developed through close Anglo-French collaboration and adds significantly to the capability of the UK and our NATO allies," says Minister of State for Defence Procurement Philip Dunne. "The delivery of the first cannon on our Ajax vehicles is another example of how our 178 billion (US$2.5 billion) investment in UK Defence is ensuring our Armed Forces have the equipment they need."

  • Campaign to secure 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards gathering pace Defence Minister Philip Hammond Comments (0) 1 D-DAY is looming for the future of Wales's under- threat tank regiment. Campaigners will be taking their petition battle by tank from Parliament Square to No.

    10 Downing Street on Thursday ahead of a decision on the future of 1st The Queen's Dragoon Guards (The Welsh Cavalry). A series of meetings were held with MPs yesterday over fears the regiment could be either axed or merged.

    Welsh MPs, including Conservative David Davies MP for Monmouthshire, and Dai Havard, Labour MP for Merthyr and Rhymney, have written directly to Defence Minister Philip Hammond ahead of the announcement. Supporters of the regiment have won cross-party support for their campaign. Richard Goldsbrough, who is a former captain with the Welsh Cavalry, has urged MPs in Wales to lobby Prime Minister David Cameron on the issue.

    He said it was a political rather than an Army decision and said he believed plans to merge the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards had already been overturned. "Wales should be confident that, with her votes having the same face value as those north of the border, she will be treated with the same consideration as Scotland and her QDG will be saved," he said. "It's now up to Welsh politicians to convince David Cameron to intervene on behalf of Wales this week as he has done for Scotland." The Government is looking to reduce the Army from 100,000 to 82,000 soldiers by the end of 2020 under its Future Force 2020 plan. It is also understood that one battalion of the Royal Welsh is also at risk of being cut. A decision on the future of the regiment had originally been expected from ministers before MPs left Westminster for recess.

    But campaigners believe their political support in Wales has already succeeded in delaying an announcement until Thursday.

    Huw Longmore, press officer for the Save the Welsh Cavalry campaign, said: "There is a meeting on Thursday with the Welsh Office. "At the moment we have 2,147 signatures on the petition we have been doing a big push over the last campaign. "I think we could get 5,000 signatures. "We have a tank to promote the campaign and take the petition to Downing Street. "We are happy that the Government has realised it's an issue of our Welsh identity and regimental identity." He said he believed it was possible that plans to either merge or axe the regiment, whose Colonel in Chief is Prince Charles, could be scrapped. "There is a good chance that the proposals will be overturned better than a few weeks ago," he added. "That's largely to do with the cross-party support from MPs. "The Labour Party came to the cause first, we have had support from Plaid, the Lib Dems and the Conservatives. "I would urge people to please sign the petition within the next few days."

  • Cold War Gamer: ReviewThis is a MOD operated web site and does what it says on the tin pretty much. It lists every unit that has been part of the British Army since 1945. These are accessed through selecting the Arm of Service, you can then select from a list of unit titles and access data on the units operational, organisational and geographic deployment history.

    So simply put between dates Unit X was part of Y Brigade and based in VWX it deployed between dates to A,B, C operations. The format can make generating brigade orbats a bit laborious although Brigade Name and Unit Title will return hits from google. It also helps if you understand what units were active in your period of interest, so you are not having to look at them all, as given the number of amalgamations and title changes since the end of the War there are a lot of units listed.

    It took me about an hour to check the Cold War Infantry Battalions to generate a list of the units in 19 Brigade, from an Infantry perspective. The data for RA units and RE units is less well defined against formations but home stations and operational deployments are quite well covered. To some extent the problem is more difficult here as single batteries , squadrons and regiments might have a variety of relationships with different formations having: administrative relationships current operational relationships wartime roles.

    As well as generating lists of what units were in what formations at what times it's also handy for checking data and in that respect it's easier to consume so if you believe that x unit was in y formation at date its relatively easy to check if the data is there. I have assumed that as it's published by the MOD it has a degree of accuracy that other resources may lack, the assumption being it's generated from their own records. As I have found their can be a level of ambiguity between planned and actual deployments so as ever the source data is important in this respect.

    Whilst not that user friendly due to the structure of the data and the fact that you can only view it from one perspective it is never the less an extremely valuable web resource for any one interested in the post war history of the British Army and provides a time efficient route to validating and generating data compared to what was available previously.

    Equally once you know what units were where or serving in what formation it becomes a lot easier to track down what the unit and formations were up to through a variety of regimentaly focused resources: Regimental Museums Regimental Magazines Regimental History Web sites Regimental association web sites Regimental facebook pages all of which contain a remarkable amount of information although sometimes a degree of persistence is required to get to the bottom of a problem.

  • Commander Canadian Army Receives Special Hockey Jersey from ... During the recent conference of the Honorary Appointments in the 5 th Division, the Commander of the Canadian Army, Lieutenant General Hainse was presented with a special hockey jersey by Honorary Colonel Wayne Miller, 37 Signal Regiment. The jersey was designed by the ICECAPS, the Montreal Canadians farm team located in St. John s, Newfoundland. The jersey commemorates the 100 th Anniversary of the Battle of Beaumont Hamel and the sacrifice Newfoundlanders made in the First World War and in particular the Blue Putties of The Royal Newfoundland Regiment. On 1 July 1916 at Beaumont Hamel, 801 members of the Regiment went over the top and only 68 answered the next roll call. HCol Wayne Miller, 37 Signal Regiment and other military units in Newfoundland have formed a close relationship with the ICECAPs. On regular basis, the units provide a Colour Party for the playing of the Canadian and American anthems. Recently, Jim King, veteran Tel Op, carried the Newfoundland flag in the Colour Party. Several months ago, the ICECAPS asked the St John s military units to provide a presentation to the team on mental toughness and how the Canadian Forces prepare soldiers to deal with difficult situations on the road to readiness for operations. The presentation was well received. In appreciation, the ICECAPs decided to do something special to commemorate the sacrifice of The Royal Newfoundland Regiment. To mark the occasion and show their support to the military, they chose to design a commemorative jersey to be worn at home games, Feb. 5th. & 6 th , The ICECAPS also provided 250 tickets for each game to military members and their families, as well and veterans. The event was national news when Don Cherry held up one of the jerseys on Hockey Night in Canada and explained the significance of the commemoration.

  • Commander's dashboard to address soldier suicides -- Defense ... Commander's dashboard to address soldier suicides By Defense Systems Staff Dec 17, 2012 In response to an increase in soldier suicides, the Army will introduce in February a first-generation online software application called the Commander's Risk Reduction Dashboard (CRRD), which will consolidate information from multiple Army databases and present to commanders a concise report about soldiers who were involved with at-risk behaviors, some of which may be associated with suicide. Reports generated by the CRRD will be used by commanders to make decisions on how best to help soldiers through intervention activities, according to an article published by the Army News Service. "We know that commanders are concerned with the health and well-being of their units," said Donna Clouse, risk reduction program manager, Army Center for Substance Abuse Programs, Army G1, quoted in the Army News Service article. "And so the intent of this dashboard is to display data to enable commanders to make informed decisions about intervention strategies, and assist in helping commanders respond earlier to the warning signs." The first-generation CRRD is being developed by the Army's Communications-Electronics Command (CECOM) at the request of the Army's G-1 Deputy Chief of Staff office, with a fuller solution planned for about two years from now, according to the article. The interim CRRD will highlight for commanders at company and battalion levels instances where soldiers have displayed any of 14 critical risk factors that could indicate they could be at risk, such as positive drug tests, crimes against persons or property, alcohol offenses, or domestic violence. "The CRRD is going to help commanders recognize trends in soldiers who may be at risk and alert them to any incidents for both current and new soldiers coming into the installation," said Crystal Chadwick, CRRD project lead with the Software Engineering Center at CECOM, in the Army News Service article.

    The CRRD will allow commanders to evaluate a soldier's history inside a single unit, or across multiple units, which can be especially important when a soldier with a history of high-risk behaviors transitions into a new unit.

    Developers of the CRRD say the next version of the software will include an algorithm that leads to an assessment system to identify soldiers who need immediate support. "We hope to be able to build upon and expand the dashboard in the full solution," said Clouse in the article. "We think that once the algorithm comes out and we gather additional information about high risk behaviors from Army Public Health Command and others involved in the Army Study to Assess Risk and Resilience in Service members program, we will be able to scale the full solution to fit the needs of commanders."

  • Contenders Emerge for British Tank Upgrade Program British Challenger tanks, pictured here arriving in Kuwait in 2003 ahead of the Iraq war, are in line for upgrades. But other ground-vehicle programs are competing for funding. (Photo: British Ministry of Defense) An effort by the British Army to extend the life of its Challenger 2 main battle tanks out to 2035 is due to move into a new gear next month as some of the world s top armored-vehicle suppliers submit bids to secure work under the program's assessment phase. Up to 227 tanks are to undergo a life extension program aimed primarily at addressing obsolescence issues in the turret, but it s possible some limited capability enhancements also will be added. Studies into the art of the possible on upgrading lethality, survivability, power pack and other systems will be part of the upcoming assessment phase contracts. The Challenger 2 Life Extension Programme is one of several armored-vehicle programs the British Army has in its sights, budgets permitting. The purchase of an 8x8 wheeled mechanized infantry vehicle (MIV) is expected to formally get underway in the next few weeks and is the army s top new program priority. General Dynamics UK is already working on a 3.5 billion ($5.1 billion) deal to produce 589 tracked Ajax-family scout vehicles, and Lockheed Martin UK is developing a Warrior infantry fighting vehicle sustainment program ahead of an expected production contract. A protected-mobility vehicle program is also in the works. The British Army s existing plans suggest that in terms of armored-vehicle modernization Challenger is their lowest priority. That s not to say there isn t money for it but they are quite clear that after Scout they have two priorities, one is Warrior and the other is bringing forward the MIV, said Ben Barry, the senior land warfare analyst at the International Institute of Strategic Studies think tank in London. What is clear is that all the messages from the army suggest they have had to make hard choices because a lot more modernization would be going into Challenger 2 if they had the funds, he said. Work on Challenger 2 modernization has been underway for several years, but the decision in the 2015 strategic defense and security review to push back the 2025 out-of-service date by 10 years and mounting issues with aging systems have finally helped advance the program. The MoD hopes to name the winning assessment phase teams around October and select a winning submission in 2019. BAE Systems, CMI Defence, General Dynamics, Krauss Maffei Wegmann, Rheinmetall and Ruag have all previously expressed an interest in the program. With bids due to the Ministry of Defence by July 14, the actual lineup of contenders for the award of two 24-month competitive assessment phase deals started to become clearer June 3 when two of the world s leading vendors of land systems declared they would mount a joint bid. BAE and General Dynamics UK announced they were partnering in an industry consortium which also includes Leonardo-Finmeccanica (formerly Selex ES), Moog, Safran Electronics, and General Dynamic Mission Systems. BAE, the design authority on the Challenger 2, will lead the bid with GDUK, sharing the integration and systems work with its erstwhile rival as well as physically undertaking the life extension work at a new facility it is building at Merther Tydfil, South Wales, to assemble the Ajax. Kevin Connell, the vice president of land systems at GDUK, said there is sufficient capacity at the factory to run the two programs in parallel. The GDUK executive said the partners hoped to find logistics, training, electronic-architecture and other synergies between Ajax and the main battle tank update to help drive affordability. Lockheed Martin UK, also confirmed it was bidding, but as of late last week it was keeping its potential suppliers under wraps. Given our successful involvement in the Ajax program as turret provider and Warrior capability sustainment program as prime contractor, we are in a strong position to compete for the project with a proposal that demonstrates strong UK industrial participation involving a wide-ranging supply base. We plan to announce further details of our proposal in due course, said a spokeswoman for Lockheed Martin UK. The UK arm of Lockheed Martin opened a new facility at Ampthill, north of London, where it plans to undertake the Ajax and Warrior turret integration and test work, which has propelled it into a leading position in the UK armored-vehicles market alongside BAE and GDUK. Company officials say the Challenger 2 program would be well aligned with their existing work. Like GDUK, the company hopes to benefit from synergies on exiting vehicle programs. Swiss company Ruag Defence also confirmed it would be bidding as a prime contractor. "We are supported by a group of various sized UK based industrial partners, and if successful, intend to carry out much of the work in the North of England," said a company spokesman.

  • Could artificial intelligence help to combat stress? An interview with Davide Morelli Interview conducted by April Cashin-Garbutt [1] , MA (Cantab) How is stress defined? Stress is actually a bit of a buzzword. The initial definition was the reaction to changes , which is why you get stressed also when good things happen, hence the distinction between good stress, eustress, and bad stress, distress. Since the 90 s, stress has become a synonym of the everyday hustling, describing a life style. We focus on the original definition, evaluating the user autonomic balance that can be estimated from heart rate variability (HRV). [embedded content] Can you please outline the physiological response to stress in terms of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems? The autonomic nervous system (the sympathetic and parasympathetic systems) has a direct influence over most of our internal organs. The sympathetic system is called fight or flight because it takes over whenever you have to perform quickly, answering to a challenge. When you are under stress, the sympathetic system help you perform, the heart rate accelerates, adrenaline flows. But this also means that you are consuming your body to face a challenge. The parasympathetic system is called rest and digest , and basically takes over when you are relaxed, and helps your body fortify. After a period of stress, it s important for you to relax, so the parasympathetic system can take over and you can recover. We usually think that stress is always bad. This is not true, stress is basically whatever happens whenever you have to adapt to a change, and the physiological reaction helps you cope with this challenge. An autonomic imbalance towards the sympathetic system becomes dangerous only if you never recover after a prolonged period of high activation. In that case stress becomes harmful, and it has shown to be correlated with dangerous conditions. How does deep breathing work from a physiological perspective? Luckily for us, there is a quite simple trick that has an immediate and beneficial effect on the autonomic system. The diaphragm is linked to the vagus nerve, which interfaces with parasympathetic control of the heart rate. If you perform diaphragmatic, slow, deep breathing, you will literally pull your vagus nerve, forcing your heart rate to raise during inhalation (a momentary suspension of parasympathetic activity), and fall during exhalation (parasympathetic system kicks back in). Slow diaphragmatic breathing has been proven to relax patients. It s commonly used to calm down patients with panic attacks. You can find scientific papers back from the 60 s proving its efficacy, but it s a technique that was already used in China thousands of years ago. What effect does deep breathing have on the heart rate? The stimulation of the vagus nerve, if done correctly by breathing using the diaphragm, will force the heart rate to raise and fall in synch with the breathing. This phenomenon is called Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia (RSA). However, if you breathe forcing expansion of your chest instead of your diaphragm, you won t see anything interesting on your heart rate, nor will your autonomic activity be affected. Babies spontaneously know how to correctly breathe (using the diaphragm). Sadly, adults tend to forget, and usually breathe forcing expansion of the chest. Chest breathing will not have the same effect on your autonomic system. Can you please outline the app Biobeats developed to teach users to deep breathe? We developed an app, Hear and Now ( http://hearandnow.biobeats.com [2] ), that guides the user through breathing exercises. Using music and visual cues, we teach the correct breathing pattern. In the meantime we measure the users heart rate using the smartphone camera as a PPG device, or using a connected wearable heart rate device. Measuring the response of the users heart rate to the exercise, we give immediate feedback about the effectiveness of the exercise. This will let the user know if they performed chest or diaphragmatic breathing, and will let them track their progress over time. How does the app work and in what ways does it use artificial intelligence? The app leverages on Respiratory Sinus Arrhythmia to measure the users breathing quality. We are currently piloting a new version of the app that uses artificial intelligence to estimate the level of stress of the users, and suggests the best moment to perform a breathing exercise. What were the main aims behind developing the Hear and Now app? We believe that technology can help people track their wellbeing. With wearable devices, this can happen passively. We think that the Quantified Self movement should progress from giving data about physical activity back to users, to giving insights about what causes stress, and a concrete help in managing stress. How do you plan to use the data from the app? We are training our stress detection algorithms using the data we collect from internal pilots. Once the algorithms are ready, we will apply the same technology to the B2C market, and offer stress coaching programs to users. What does the future hold for Biobeats? We are currently building stress reduction programs for medium to large sized corporate clients and will be launching a B2C product with breathing and stress coaching programs. How important do you think artificial intelligence will be in combating medical issues such as stress going forwards? At the moment, we are focusing on wellbeing, trying to help people detect stress before they burn out. However, the same Artificial Intelligence approach could be used to detect the onset of conditions, and implement early interventions. After years of stagnation, deep learning has shown how effective it can be in solving tasks that can t be easily solved by traditional computer science. However, it s a young discipline, and there is still much to be done, and the intersection with the medical field is still largely to be explored. Where can readers find more information? The effectiveness of breathing techniques has been largely explored and many interesting scientific papers can be found on Google Scholar.

  • Days Before Runaway Military Blimp, Another Blimp Accident in Kabul Killed Five The runaway military surveillance blimp [1] that came loose from an Army base in Maryland on Wednesday dragged its torn tether through power lines in two Pennsylvania counties before crashing into the woods. But at least no one died. The same can t be said of a recent accident involving a U.S. military blimp in Kabul that constantly hovers over the Afghan capital. (See The Above [2] , a short documentary from The Intercept s Field of Vision project, also embedded below.) On Oct. 11, a British military helicopter was coming in for a landing at NATO headquarters, where the blimp is moored. According to an eyewitness who spoke to the BBC [3] , the helicopter hit the tether, which then wrapped itself around the rotors. The helicopter crashed, killing five people two U.S. service members, two British service members, and a French contract civilian and injuring five more. The helicopter was a Puma Mk2 [4] , carrying members of NATO involved in training and mentoring Afghanistan s air force. The two American casualties [5] were both from the Air Force: Maj. Phyllis J. Pelky, 45, an aide-de-camp to the Air Force Academy superintendent; and Master Sgt. Gregory T. Kuhse, 38, who was assigned to Scott Air Force Base in Illinois. The British dead [6] were identified as Flight Lieutenant Alan Scott and Flight Lieutenant Geraint Roly Roberts, both of the Royal Air Force. The BBC s Andy Moore reported that the British Defense Ministry was investigating. Official military sources say only that somehow or other, during the course of that incident, the cable of the balloon was severed, he said. The blimp deflated and eventually crashed to the ground nearby. Its deflation was captured on video [7] . Afghan onlookers, used to seeing the blimp as impregnable and omniscient, cheered [8] , and urged the person filming it to post the video on Facebook, which he did. The blimps that fly over Kabul are part of what s called the Persistent Threat Detection System. They provide live 24-hour video surveillance [9] of the area, allowing operators to zoom in on specific locations to see what s going on. But officials value them for more than just surveillance. As a 2012 Army After Action Report [10] from Afghanistan noted, the balloons serve as a great deterrent even if they aren t operational. INS [insurgents] and LNs [local nationals] alike believe the blimp can see everything and will act differently when it s up. The report s recommendation: to fly the balloons as much as possible, even if the camera systems/feed is broken. Work IO [Information Operation] messages that re-enforce the perception that [they] can see everything. The Oct. 11 accident was not the first time helicopters in Afghanistan have hit a blimp s tether. Defense News [11] reported in 2013 that at least three Army blimps in Afghanistan were lost due to a helicopter tether strike during the course of one year. That led the military to make the tethers more visible, placing flags and visible light and infrared strobes at regular intervals on the tethers to help improve visibility. In Kabul, the sight of a runaway blimp is also apparently not nearly as rare as it is in Pennsylvania. Defense News [12] described an incident in 2011 where a blimp got loose, speeding through the sky, out of control, carried by the furious wind. Suddenly, an F-16 fighter jet roared close and then opened fire, mangling the blimp-like dirigible, like blasting a football with a round of buckshot. Gradually, the aerostat slumped to the ground. And apparently, that was just one of two aerostats lost to a storm that day, Defense News reported. There have been domestic and fatal blimp accidents, too. Three people were killed in 2007 off the Florida Keys when their small plane hit a tether and crashed. The Associated Press reported at the time that the plane s wing hit the wire at about 4,000 feet halfway between the ground and the blimp then crashed in about two feet of water. That was the famous Fat Albert [13] blimp that hovers over Cudjoe Key, now serving U.S. Customs and Border Protection and the Coast Guard to thwart drug-trafficking operations. Fat Albert has a long history of getting loose in high winds, including a famous incident in 1981 when fishermen saw its tether dragging across the water and tied it to their boat. According to the Miami Herald , the blimp then lifted the boat out of the water. The fishermen jumped out safely, but two F-4 phantom jets shot the blimp down over the Gulf of Mexico using air-to-air missiles. As for the runaway blimp that crashed in Pennsylvania, don t expect to see it or its partner in the sky again anytime soon, if at all. They were the last remnants of a troubled $2.7 billion program called JLENS or Joint Land Attack Cruise Missile Defense Elevated Netted Sensor System, intended to spot aerial attacks that normal radar can t see. The blimp that got away was part of a two-blimp orbit being tested over Aberdeen, Maryland, for a three-year period after nearly two decades of massive cost overruns, buggy software and dashed expectations. One blimp has powerful radar that s supposed to sweep an area as wide as Texas. It s called the surveillance aerostat. That one went up last December [14] . The other is supposed to take more precise measurements of identified threats, and pass along the information necessary to shoot them down. It s called the fire control aerostat, and it only went up this past August [15] . It was the fire control aerostat the new one that got loose. But according to Lt. Marco Chouinard of NORAD, the North American Aerospace Defense Command, The team on the ground, when they noticed that the fire control aerostat had broken free, they immediately lowered and secured the surveillance aerostat as a precaution, pending the outcome of a thorough investigation. The fire control aerostat is being recovered after it fell to the ground, in two pieces. The tail and the main section are basically separated by about a quarter of mile, Chouinard said. The Associated Press [16] reported that the main section still had helium in its nose when it went down, so state police troopers fired about 100 shotgun blasts into it. Raytheon Co., the contractor on the JLENS project, had hopes of selling more of the systems, if not in the U.S., then internationally. The company was hoping for an A+ [17] from NORAD to encourage sales. But the Baltimore Sun noted [18] that the blimp s four-hour, 160-mile journey belied representations that Raytheon and the Army had made. Raytheon had called the chance that the tether would break very small. Military planners had said that in case of detachment, it would deflate automatically, or by remote control, and would be on the ground in four minutes. Nearby residents had also been told there was a 90 percent chance the balloon would come down within 12.5 miles of its base. But the leaders of the House Oversight and Government Committee sent letters to the secretaries of defense [19] and transportation [20] on Thursday seeking answers. And Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee [21] cited the program as a metaphor for government in the Republican presidential debate on Wednesday night. What we had was something the government made basically a bag of gas that cut loose, destroyed everything in its path, left thousands of people powerless, he said. But they couldn t get rid of it because we had too much money invested in it, so we had to keep it. That is our government today. We saw it in the blimp. That s exactly what we saw. Here is filmmaker Kirsten Johnson s short documentary The Above , which features both the blimp hovering over Kabul and the one in Maryland that got away.

  • Device can track soldier movements without GPS C4ISR Device can track soldier movements without GPS WINS, at center, uses inertial sensors to determine location. Army researchers are developing a pocket-size device that will give soldiers precise geolocation information even when GPS signals are unavailable. The Warfighter Integrated Navigation System (WINS), being developed at the Communications Electronics Research Development and Engineering Center, uses a variety of sensors to track a soldier s movement from a last known location, recording footsteps, speed, time, altitude and other factors to show the soldier s location on a map. "It's got a number of inertial sensors, such as a pedometer and an accelerometer, things you will find on your cell phone but of a higher quality," Osie David, a CERDEC researcher, said in a news release 1 . "Even if the enemy is denying you GPS or the terrain is, you can still get known location on here so it will show up on your Nett Warrior device or your command and control system." Finding alternatives to GPS is a focus for the Defense Department 2 precisely for those times when Global Positioning Systems signals don t get through, whether because of terrain such as dense forests or jungles, or enemy interference.

    GPS signals can be jammed even with low-powered devices or spoofed by stronger signals. Or both. In 2011, Iranian engineers jammed the GPS signal 3 for an U.S.

    RQ-170 Sentinel drone, then spoofed its coordinates to make it land in Iran instead of its base in Afghanistan. University of Texas students also have demonstrated using spoofing to take control of unmanned aircraft and even an 80-foot yacht 4 . The military doesn t expect that it ever will do without GPS it s still the most accurate and far-reaching geolocation system ever created and likely will remain so for the foreseeable future.

    But in addition to hardening GPS signals against jamming and other electronic warfare attacks, researchers are working on alternatives for those times when GPS service is blocked.

  • Did New York Post Scrub 2001 Story Because It Supported Donald ... This is interesting. Mike M via twitter [1] notices a Page Six story from September 2001 disappears from the New York Post. On September 14th 2001 the New York Post ran an article (Op-Ed) with the headline: The Issue Is Radical Islam . Within the article you find the following paragraph(s) [emphasis added]: [ ] In Sudan, the Islamic militants impose slavery on captured Dinkas but wherever radical Islam is in power, it subjugates people it regards as infidels. The Coalition for the Defense of Human Rights, an organization supporting those persecuted by militant Islam, argues that radical Islamism is a world ideology, fielding a world terror-army, which oppresses millions with a racist ideology that deems non-Muslims less than fully human. Here in New York, it was easy to get angry listening to Egyptians, Palestinians and the Arabs of nearby Paterson, N.J., celebrate as they received word of the murderous attacks in New York and Washington. But Mayor Giuliani (who has been tireless and magnificent in this crisis) rightly warned New York- ers that it would be wrong to take their anger out on the city s Arab and Muslim residents. Attacks on Arab-Americans in Paterson or elsewhere are utterly indefensible. Omar, a Muslim New Yorker and former student of mine at Cooper Union, e-mailed me to say he was sickened to watch Middle Easterners celebrate our sorrow. He is an American who has imbibed our values while maintaining his Muslim faith. He wants no truck with those who kill in the name of Islam. ( link via Wayback Machine Web Archive [2] ) However, if you search the New York Post the actual article is no-where to be found on the New York Post website . Current search HERE Compare to WayBackMachine HERE [3] [4] [5] It would definitely appear this article was removed (no longer available) at the Rupert Murdoch owned New York Post. Why is that? As Mike M states [6] , which is the bigger issue? That Trump would exaggerate the number of people celebrating, or that the New York Post would delete evidence of the protest itself? Fair question. This New York Post report is also confirmed in an unrelated caller to the Howard Stern Show: And here s another story [7] within the New York Post specifically discussing how video of Muslims celebrating the 9-11-01 attack was confiscated and deleted. In a massive note of irony, their concern at the time was censorship : New York Post Now P.C. Means Censorship [8] [ ] The PC concern is that the Israelis will somehow take advantage of the attacks and therefore that negative stories about Palestinians are to be handled as gingerly as stories about American Arabs and Muslims. That s why you probably don t know about the Palestinian Authority s death threat against a videographer who took footage of a 4,000-person celebration on Sept. 11 which led to the seizure of the news footage and its erasure . The fact that bin Laden s allies on the West Bank targeted a news photographer for death for filming Palestinians dancing at the news of the death of 7,000 Americans didn t make it anywhere near the front pages. The news media usually make a stink when the media are threatened. Not this time.

There was an underlying tiredness always with us and though we had planned to travel quite a bit we just followed the important memories for John. First we found ourselves walking The City of London and John asking me to take a photo of A Royal Fusilier statue in the middle of the square. He had done his National Training for 2 years, when a young man, and had been chosen for Officer Training with the Royal Fusiliers. City of London emblem (very Knights Templar with Dragon on top) and in the background in the centre of the street, is the statue of a Royal Fusilier. And then of course, John, who was a Royal Fusilier. I pointed out to him the many symbols that existed with the regiment that linked with the Knights Templar. Especially when we visited the St Sepulchre church that is in High Holborn. As a Fusilier they marched to the church on Rememberance Day (Red Poppy Day) each November. The south aisle of St. Sepulchre s is the regimental chapel of the Royal Fusiliers (now part of the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers) and the church garden is a memorial garden for the regiment. Regimental Colours in the Chapel. Designed by Sir Charles Nicholson, and lined by past Regimental Colours and panels in memory of deceased members of the regiment, the chapel was dedicated in 1950, and St. Sepulchre s has been the Royal Fusiliers home church ever since.

On Sunday 11th June 1950 serving regular and TA members of The Royal Fusiliers headed by Colour Parties bearing 18 sets Colours of the regular and TA units of the regiment formed up on the parade ground at HM Tower of London prepared to exercise the Royal Fusiliers ancient privilege of marching through the City of London with drums beating, Colours flying and bayonets fixed . Met by the mounted City Marshall at the city boundary they halted and demanded passage as was their right and, having received leave to proceed, continued to St Sepulchre s for the dedication service conducted by the Chaplain General to the Forces. Interior view of Church of The Holy Sepulchre at Holborn Viaduct, London. Click the image to see a larger version. The original Saxon church on the site was dedicated to St Edmund the King and Martyr. During the Crusades in the 12th century the church was renamed St Edmund and the Holy Sepulchre, in reference to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The name eventually became contracted to St Sepulchre. John was overcome to find so many of his ex-compatriots memorials are there. You can read more about the Regimental Chapel here [1] . Oxford and Eleanor of Aquitane Then while were were in the City of London we visited Charles Dickens House where he lived with his wife Catherine and 10 children. The marriage was not a happy one and Charles moved out to live at Gad s Hill, in the country. This was amidst a lot of gossip and scandal that infuriated Charles Dickens for as he said, there was no truth to it. Charles gave a letter to his publisher to explain his reasons for their separation the letter was never meant to be published. You can read the letter with Charles Dickens s response to gossip here [2] . John, my husband has Charles Dickens life in his Soul Story. I have Ellen Ternan in my Soul Story it still disgusts us both that the gossip still exists and is untrue the fact that it still continues after 157 years is almost laughable. I explain how our friendship really was in that life in the book Two Soulmates [3] . I was feeling messages that we should visit Oxford, only to find that Eleanor of Aquitane and Henry II lived in a chateau there and that Richard l was born there. We stayed at a nice hotel Four Pillars and enjoyed walks along the Thames River, watching the inevitable rowing teams. The Town was busy with many students and visitors. We found the place where the Chateau once stood, but it fell down and is now marked only with a memorial plaque to remind visitors of its existence: Marker of Beaumont Palace in Oxford; Eleanor and King Henry II lived here the birthplace of Richard the Lionheart and his brother King John The Rollright Stones and Crop Circle We heard about the Rollright Stones that were north of Oxford at Chipping North. Not far to drive so we visited the ancient site; it is 5,000-years-old. You can read more about the Rollright Stones and Whispering Knights on Wikipedia [4] . It was summer in England but cold and damp we arrived to find the ancient stones were known as The King s men and the Whispering Knights . And we were researching the Knights Templars? This was a co-ordinated incident! We needed to take notice here. There was no one around at all at first but then a few car loads of people came in and began climbing the fence near the ancient stones and were walking into the wheat field stretching for miles. We thought What the heck ? and then realised there was a crop circle over there! (You can read about these crop circles which appeared the day John and Valerie boarded the Eurostar train and left France for England. There are images of the Whispering Knights and the most unusual crop circles on this website along with video found here [5] .) John said, You have your wish Val, it is the season for Crop Circles and you were hoping to see one come on, let s go . We found ourselves running around like children, the energy when walking the patterns was extraordinarily up-lifting. All the people were speaking French were they connected to the Knights Templiers also? It was raining steadily now and we were very cold, wet and muddy but it didn t matter we felt we had been set-up by our Spirit Mentor and we were elated. It was like a reward of some kind and a healing. Walking the Crop Circle it was wet, cold and muddy and others had just arrived all speaking French Were they connected to the Knights Templar also? One wonders The stalks of wheat are only bent (not broken) and swirl in the circle overlapping each other New growth is showing where the crop circle pattern is formed ?? More new growth and us running around like children feeling so happy, and uplifted ..John said He had never felt so good! Back at our hotel our room key card would not work even when the green light showed to open the door it still wouldn t work. We had heard visits to crop circles sometimes interfered with electronics. I was still able to take some photos on my mobile phone. The paddock stretches for miles it is impossible to see the crop circle pattern formed at ground level. It is only seen from the air. John said. I feel remarkably relaxed and I haven t shouted at you much at all and then he humbly added, I don t feel quite so skinny Skinny? Yes, I feel I ve put some weight on and or possibly I m not worrying about my health anymore. Bilocation or a sign from a friend? Next morning, at our lovely hotel in Oxford, while we were both seated at breakfast, a well-dressed American gentleman, with wiry hair, approached us. He spoke beautifully and excused himself but, I have to ask you sir, did you enjoy the graduation yesterday? I saw you there and offered to assist you carrying two glasses of champagne. I remember that large ring you are wearing on your finger. John replied, No you have mistaken me for someone else I wasn t at the graduation. The American gentleman immediately backed away and apologised profusely. Please excuse me sir. And looking very embarrassed he left. I said to John, Something is going on; maybe I should go and invite him to join us for breakfast? John agreed. I walked over to the American gentleman and it was my turn to be a little embarrassed to say (when we surrounded by academics), Excuse me I am interested in the para-normal (He interrupted and said he was open to that too) I said great! Would you care to join us for breakfast? I think we need to talk some more Upon which he jumped up and came over with me. He said to John, I was 99% sure the man I saw yesterday was you I particularly remember that unusual ring you are wearing. We learned that he lived in Japan and was here for his son s graduation in a master s degree in philosophy. John told him an Australian Aboriginal clever man (healer) gave the ring to him and that Gerry had died 6 months earlier. We loved him and missed him. The American gentleman said My father s name is Gerry! He immediately pulled out his mobile and showed us a strong healthy upright man who was ninety years old. He looked barely 60 years. He had followed Maharishi all his life and influenced his children with the teachings. I was then prompted to ask what time did the graduation take place? The American gentleman said, About 4 pm in the afternoon, yesterday. We both exclaimed, We were walking a crop circle near the Rollright Stones north of Oxford at that time! And we all immediately realised that Gerry now in another world, was sending us a message, through this American gentleman, to say he was with us. We were all elated. With more talk we discovered that there were many more co-ordinated incidences! We all began laughing. So glad I followed my intuition to speak more with him. The Old School St. Lawrence College Now John was wanting to show me his old school St. Lawrence College at Ramsgate, East Kent. We tricked our GPS into taking the shortest way, by planning the route ourselves to make sure we drove around London and not through it. In no time we were on our way to the coast of England. I was quick to point out to John all the symbols that existed on the Coat of Arms showing that he was again, in this life, connecting to Knights Templar. I could see the equal sided red cross. A crown with 5 pointed stars. The head shield worn by knights above red cross and above that, the shell that is a pilgrim symbol of pilgrim walk to Santiago de Compostela. The motto at the bottom, In Bono Vince means Conquer with Good . Revisiting Charles Dickens We stayed for 3 days, at a comfortable B&B almost on the seaside. Unfortunately, John broke his top dental plate while eating breakfast and could no longer eat. We were lucky when our hosts soon found a Dental clinic at Broadstairs only -hour drive away and we found the place, we were told that if we waited an hour, the clinician would have it fixed. While waiting, we decided to walk to the broad walk at Broadstairs, as that was where all the activity seem to be. We found to our surprise it had been a holiday place for Charles Dickens. His name was everywhere relating sites to his characters from his books and the Hotel he stayed in. This was another opportunity for John to release negative memories. And if he hadn t broken his dental plate we would have missed this visit. We had definitely been set up John s teeth were fixed in no time but what a lovely time we had walking through his soul history. Painting in Charles Dicken Family home in City of London This looked so like a Chevalier (Knight). Is this a past life memory of Charles Dickens? John at Charles Dickens writing desk Illustration from The Child s Return by Charles Dickens. Note the Knights in armour, again Mr Dickens overlooks Mr Barrow in the study Charles Dickens as a young man compare to how like John Barrow was at his age John Barrow at age 19 years doing his National Service. You can read about the Ghost of Charles Dickens on my website, Part 1 [6] , and Part 2 [7] . (These pages open in new windows) Now we have returned home, after being invited to give a talk at Swami Home in Singapore. The people were so friendly and kind. As I have said it has taken another 2 months to really settle home feeling uplifted and free. I no longer keep feeling John as my child and correcting him he didn t like it and neither did I. I no longer react to certain emotions within they are all gone. People say how the Fall and the Near Death thing was sad while we were in France and I agree it was very difficult, but I wouldn t change a thing. I feel totally different now. A new me happy and at peace with myself. And that reflects to John also. We thank God the Creator for all that has been given to us and willingly offer ourselves in service for the good of all. If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nations. When there is order in the nations, there will be peace in the world. Sathya Sai Baba. LET WORLD PEACE BE WITH US ALL.

  • Esterline to provide rugged vetronics displays for British Army Scout armored ... BELLEVUE, Wash., 14 Sept. 2015. Vetronics [1] designers at General Dynamics UK Ltd. in Blackwood, England, needed rugged displays [2] and video-processing units for the Scout Specialist Vehicle (SV) that General Dynamics is designing for the British Army. They found their solution from Esterline Corp. in Bellevue, Wash. Esterline officials have announced that General Dynamics UK are choosing the Esterline Codis turret crew-station displays, triple-head driver's displays, and specialized video-processing hardware for a total contract value of $21 million over seven years. Scout SV will be a agile, tracked, medium-weight armored fighting vehicle with an open-systems architecture of sensors networked on Gigabit Ethernet open architecture for intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) applications. The scout's onboard networked sensors and computers will enable the vehicle to capture, analyze, manipulate, store, and share more than 6 terabytes of intelligence data, including still images and video. Scout SV crews will provide commanders with decision-making support now available only from manned and unmanned ISTAR aircraft. Related: Upgrading combat vehicles with versatile vetronics [3] Esterline will provide the Codis TX-335S turret crew-station displays to present Scout gunners and commanders with logistics, mission-system and gun-control information; the Codis TX-321S triple-head driver's displays to render a near-seamless 120-degree image of the route with selectable front or rear view in day or night vision; and Codis VPU-101 video-processing units to receive and interpret data from several vehicle-mounted sensors, then process, reformat and distribute it to displays, Esterline officials say. Hardware deliveries will begin in 2016. Esterline will manufacture the Codis hardware in its Kortrijk, Belgium facility. General Dynamics UK won a contract in 2010 to design the Scout SV, and won another contract in September 2014 to build the 589 Scout SV variants for the British Army.

  • EXCLUSIVE: A First Look At The British Army's AJAX Forces TV has been given an exclusive look at the latest addition to the British Army's fleet, the Scout SV, or 'AJAX'. The Scout SV armoured fighting vehicle is being developed by General Dynamics to replace the Scimitar, and is one of six planned variants ordered by the Ministry of Defence. It will be renamed AJAX when it comes into service. It will boast 360 degree thermal and visual driving cameras, laser detection ability, and numerous other new features. It'll have a top speed of 43 mph, and will be able to pull up to 92 tonnes. It claims to be the first fully-digitised fighting vehicle, with all crew members in the vehicle able to share its camera capabilities. General Dynamics have fitted the turret and 40mm cannon, and are now testing the onboard electronics prior to trials and delivery. Forces TV's Carla Prater visited General Dynamics' plant in Wales to find out more - just click below to take a look . The MoD placed a 3.5 billion order for 589 Scout SVs in September last year, with delivery expected to begin in 2017 and continue until 2024. Earlier this month controversy arose over jobs Prime Minister David Cameron claimed would be assured by the deal, after he promised that it would secure 1,300 jobs across the UK. But according to the Daily Mirror, it's now emerged that 40% of the work will be done by overseas firms, meaning Britain will lose 1.4bn. A Ministry of Defence spokesperson said: "We are assembling these vehicles in South Wales, supporting thousands of UK jobs and ensuring our servicemen and women have the very best equipment."

    Have you found yourself sympathizing for one side or the other? You may have been fooled. An article that appeared in the GlobalPost today has a good analysis on many of the fake disturbing videos that have been circulating on the internet, which are assumed to be from Syria, but really aren't.

    The sham videos can have very real effects, creating sympathy for one side or the other. Last week, the United Nations accused the rebels of war crimes, based on a YouTube video of fighters executing prisoners. This type of atrocity makes intervention less appealing to the West.

    While that video appears to have been real, many other bogus ones have found their way onto major television networks in the United States and beyond, and are spread widely by social media. It s not uncommon for the two sides to use the same footage to make opposite claims. To have a look at some of the most viewed fake videos, go to GlobalPost.

At its peak, the blog reached over 3,000 page views per day according to Corcoran, but he also says interest in the blog had been waning since passing the 1 million hits a year ago. He attributes the waning interest to war fatigue by the news media and the American public.

    Corcoran discusses the highs and lows of the blog in a story that was published in The New York Times yesterday. I m a realist and I m fully aware that after so many years it is hard for people to continue to care deeply about a conflict that doesn t seem to have any end goal or sense of mission. So a few weeks ago, I decided I would stop the blog after the election. (I m leaving the door open just a bit to a last-minute change of heart.) If I do stop posting, however, I intend to keep it on the Internet as a historical reference for anyone interested in the Iraq and Afghan wars.

    There have been many gratifying moments. One involved a woman who wrote me after I had posted a video of a firefight in Afghanistan that included her son. She said that she had not heard from him in weeks and that she was thrilled to be able to see him in the video.

    She went on to tell me what a wonderful job I was doing for all the military families who felt as she did, that the media had let them down in its coverage of the Afghan war. Full story here.

    Blake Powers (aka The Laughing Wolf ) back in September, he had just published a post telling readers he would tell them more about what it takes to do an embed. Earlier this week Powers posted a new story called Preparing For An Embed: Getting Started that talks about the first step. Powers writes on the military blog Blackfive: The first step in any embed is a journalistic outlet.

    All embeds are journalistic embeds. Period. Dot.

    They are not for morale, they are not for sightseeing, and they are not for cooking or other culinary endeavors. Trust me, I spent a couple of months earlier this year trying to set something up for a chef who wanted to go cook for the troops, and despite my efforts and those of two very helpful people in DoD, no go, not even in conjunction with a real embed. Now, that is not to say that an embed can't chose to do something once there if the unit approves, but that is not a valid reason for an embed and won't help your cause in applying.

    Embeds are for journalism and journalism only. Keep in mind that blogs (even milblogs) don't have the clout or prestige they once did and that there does still seem to be an institutional bias towards "real" media in some circles. More here.

Interesting, while it is true that most of these programs require substantial financial support, research also suggests that to include nutrition or health-related messages in entertainment programs on mass media will be cost-effective and promising. One good example will be the research done by Valente et al, who were researchers from the University of Southern California.

    After consultation with a CDC expert, the scriptwriter of the popular medical show ER (Emergency Room) came up with a storyline of an obese low-income Africa American teenager boy who had been diagnosed with hypertension during his visit to the emergency room. The storyline covered three episodes of ER, and discussed hypertension, obese, heart disease, 5 A Day (a nutrition concept which encourages people to consume five portions of fruits and vegetables each day), healthy eating habits, and life style. Valente examined people s health/nutrition-related knowledge, attitudes, and behavior before and after the air of the three episodes of ER.

In general, after watching those 3 episodes of ER, people gained higher awareness and knowledge of 5 A Day, and were reported to engage in some self-reported health behaviors.

  • From Soldier to Student to Student Leader Guest Blogger: Paul Escajadillo Business school is as much about the journey as it is about the ultimate destination. To that end, over the last 10 months, my classmates and I have all been working hard to balance 4 competing categories of activities: academics, recruiting, social/club events, and our personal lives. The beauty (and frustration during core classes) of Fuqua s 6-week terms is how little time we have to meet the rigorous demands of all these categories.

    We all learn (or are forced to learn) disciplined time management and make tradeoffs because overlapping events will inevitably occur. I had to learn what was most important to me: one extra hour of studying, preparing for an interview, or getting ready for date night with my wife. As she can attest, I didn t always pick the right one.

    After the summer and two fall terms, we were mostly done with core classes (leaving only Operations in Spring 1), and could focus on pursuing the electives and club leadership opportunities that interested us most while winding down our internship hunts. However, amidst the chaos that was Fall 1, I saw an opportunity for a future role that would best encapsulate why I enrolled in the Fuqua School of Business. Transitioning out of 7 years in the U.S.

    Army (as an enlisted man, no less), I knew I needed a rigorous foundation for business. I wanted to exit my comfort zone and immerse myself in the necessary elements to effectively implement successful business strategies, which more often than not have become global. The China Global Academic Travel Experience (GATE) 1 seemed like the ideal elective: 6 weeks of classes followed by 2 weeks in the country.

    Why China? Well, while China s export and import growth have recently slowed down from their unsustainable double digit increases, it is still the country to study when thinking about global business opportunities. A recent PwC report 2 stated China is projected to overtake the US as the largest economy by 2017 in purchasing power parity (PPP) terms and by 2027 in market exchange rate terms.

    I knew I wanted to learn as much as I could about the country, both from an academic and personal perspective. But I didn t just want to learn: I wanted to lead. During my time in the Army, I was blessed enough to deploy multiple times and always return safely with those Soldiers under my care.

    I worked in a variety of positions and deployed to the countries of Ecuador, Colombia, and twice to Afghanistan. I wanted to complement real world leadership experience with the opportunity to travel to a continent I had not visited, while leading my fellow classmates to better understand and explore the business, economy, culture, and politics of a foreign country. Paul s team at the entrance to the Great Wall of China.

    So, I applied to be a GATE Team Leader. As one member of a 5-person Team Leader group (Carson Rockett, Camden Yumori, Jessica Dennis, and Ben Markowitz round out the group), I was excited for Spring II to start. Prior to the trip, most of our duties revolved around preparing for the actual class with our professors ( Jeannete Song 3 and Dan Vermeer 4 ), and enlisting companies to host our 90+ students during our 2-week visit.

    It was rewarding work to see how family, friends, and strangers came together to help us in our quest. Now, during the actual visit, our jobs focused on the logistics of moving and maintaining accountability of 90+ students not just to and from different company and cultural visits, but also 4 different cities (Beijing, Chongqing, Chengdu, and Shanghai). Looking back, GATE truly represents the best opportunity for student leadership combined with academics.

    In order to better tailor the visit I designed a survey for the registered students. My fellow team leaders and I were very pleased to see we had great representation from the major career tracks ( consulting 5 , finance 6 , marketing 7 , general management 8 , and healthcare 9 ), but were actually surprised to learn that the most requested industry to visit was not electronics or energy, but the Chinese government. While we were unable to comply with this request, we were able to schedule a briefing by the U.S.

    Consulate in Chengdu, along with visits to Lenovo, Tsingua University, Coca-Cola, Changan Ford, New Oriental Education Company, the NBA, Wangjiang Industrial Co., P&G, Bloomberg, SanDisk, Wells Fargo, the Panda Breeding Research Center, GSK, and the Chengdu Airport Authority.

    Ultimately, what we each desired to obtain from the trip was incredibly personal, but I think it can best be encapsulated by this anonymous respondent s quote from our survey: A better understanding of China and its past, as well as its expected future.

  • General Dynamics to build British Army's next light tank The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) has awarded General Dynamics UK a contract to deliver 589 light-armor Scout Specialist Vehicles (SV) to the Army between 2017 and 2024. The tracked, medium-weight armored vehicle is designed to provide state-of-the-art, best-in-class protection for its crews. The high-agility Scout SV will form the medium core of the Army s Intelligence, Surveillance, Target Acquisition and Reconnaissance (ISTAR) capability.

    Based on a design weight limit of 42 tonnes (46 tons), the Scout comes in six variants based on a common platform with shared mobility, electronics, and survivability systems, has an open electronic architecture, a modular armor system, and places emphasis on the ability to upgrade in order to incorporate new technology and meet new threats. The Scout variants include Reconnaissance, Protected Mobility Reconnaissance Support (PMRS), Command and Control, Engineering Reconnaissance, Repair, and Recovery. According to General Dynamics, these are designed to provide best-in-class protection and survivability, reliability, mobility and all-weather ISTAR capabilities for a wide range of extended military operations with a reduced logistics footprint.

    With its main armament in its turret-mounted 40-mm cannon, the Scout also has acoustic detectors, a laser warning system, a local situational awareness system, an electronic countermeasure system, a route-marking system, and a high-performance power pack. The announced contract also includes the provision of support and training by General Dynamics for the delivered vehicles, It also secures 1,300 jobs in Britain, with 300 of these at General Dynamics facility in Oakdale, Wales, where the Scout was developed. "I'm delighted that on the eve of the NATO Summit, we can announce the biggest single contract for armored fighting vehicles for the British Army since the 1980s, says Prime Minister David Cameron. These new vehicles are testament to the world class engineering skills in South Wales and across the UK, helping to create the Army's first fully digitalized armored vehicles.

    Not only will they be crucial in helping to keep Britain safe, they will also underpin nearly 1,300 jobs across the UK and showcase the strength of the UK's highly skilled defence sector.

    With the second largest defence budget in NATO, meeting NATO's two per cent of GDP spending target and investing in new capabilities to deal with the emerging threats we are ensuring Britain's national security, staying at the forefront of the global race and providing leadership within NATO."

  • General Dynamics Wins $249 Million To Upgrade UK Military’s Communication System Engineer IT Systems Operator Royal Engineers (UK MoD) General Dynamics has won a 175 million contract to upgrade Bowman tactical communications equipment currently used by the UK military. The contract will allow for the Bowman tactical communications equipment will help UK military to receive a series of enhancements and upgrades that will enable the system to continue to operate for the next decade. Software enhancements will make the kit faster, improve usability and make it more compatible with our allies equipment. The contract will also provide 12,000 brand new data terminals for use in headquarters, on-the-soldier, as well as on ships, vehicles and aircraft, Michael Fallon, Secretary of state for UK Defense, made the announcement as he visited the Royal Anglian Regiment in Woolwich to witness a range of the equipment in use Thursday. Bowman equipment is used across the British Army, Royal Navy and Royal Air Force [RAF] including for the Challenger 2 Main Battle Tank, Type 45 Destroyer and Chinook helicopter. It will be installed on new armoured vehicles, ships and aircraft carriers. The enhanced kit will deliver safe, secure voice and data communications, as well as live updates from an operational environment, helping commanders to make effective and accurate decisions in real time. Of the 175 million spend, 75 million will go towards the new 12,000 hard-wearing data terminals, while 23 million will be spent on software. Brigadier Richard Spencer, Head of the MOD s Battlefield and Tactical Communications and Information System delivery team said, This contract will replace the data terminals and update software across the Bowman system to ensure ease of use, more rapid and robust data services and improved interoperability. The enhanced equipment will be delivered from 2018.
  • Getting intelligence to the boots on the groundGetting intelligence to the boots on the ground October 13, 2015 Jumping out of an airplane at night into a battle zone is the ultimate sensory overload experience. Hurtling toward earth through the night sky, paratroopers encounter a dizzying array of information from below red lights, blue lights, yellow lights, white lights, strobe lights, flares, muzzle flashes, and more. In today's modern digital battlefield, warfighters face a more daunting challenge than a straightforward night parachute jump. Over the past few decades, the Department of Defense has developed and fielded sensors at a breakneck pace. Almost every platform flying is integrated with an array of sensors that provide vital real time information. Even troops have become moving digital sensor arrays, giving their commanders ears and eyes on the ground. With so much information coming from so many sources at the same time, the need exists for an enterprise to collect and make sense of all the intelligence [1] collected. That enterprise is the Distributed Common Ground System (DCGS). DCGS is the Department of Defense's globally networked intelligence system. Predicated on advanced mathematical algorithms, DCGS collects sensor data from hundreds of manned and unmanned assets operating all over the world, then fuses that data into intelligence to amplify situational awareness for users around the world. It ingests terabytes of sensor data [2] , then fuses that disparate data into discrete actionable items. Not an easy task. Without DCGS, it is extremely difficult to fully exploit all sources of data acoustic, infrared images, video, human intelligence, radio intercepts, maritime signals, and friend or foe technology. Advancing Actionable Intelligence For the Army, DCGS-A connects soldiers to hundreds of intelligence data sources, providing them with the "actionable intelligence" they so urgently need. The system's usability will soon be enhanced, as the Army is preparing to conduct a competition for the next phase of DCGS-A, Increment 2. "The DCGS program and the intelligence that it provides are more critical now than ever for our Army to do its mission," said Dr. Rob Smith, vice president of C4ISR for Lockheed Martin. For DCGS-A Increment 2, the Army is looking to bring best of breed commercial technologies to improve the tools soldiers use to analyze, process and visualize information on the battlefield. They will also look to enhance capabilities in predictive aanalytics, cyber and data fusion. "In developing a solution for increment 2, we'll draw upon our extensive ISR knowledge and also leverage our strong intelligence community experience, especially in cyber security and predictive analytics," said Jerry Mamrol, director of Army Strategic and Tactical Systems. Indeed, Lockheed Martin's legacy in developing critical common ground systems and associated capabilities for the Army, Navy and Air Force is a long one. Since 1980 the team has been designing and fielding multiple intelligence processing, correlation and fusion capabilities that collect and fuse data from signals intelligence, geospatial intelligence, full motion video, and still imagery. Enhancing Intelligence Sharing A key element of DCGS is its ability to share intelligence across military services, national agencies and coalition forces. The common software gateway that enables this information sharing is called the DCGS Integration Backbone (DIB), co-developed by Lockheed Martin. Built on an open, non-proprietary software architecture, the DIB facilitates intelligence flow and allows analysts to simultaneously work missions anywhere in the world. "Our development of the DIB is a prime example of an innovative enterprise capability that expedites getting operationally relevant intelligence to deployed forces," said Roberto Camacho, Lockheed Martin DCGS-A Capture Manager. The DIB, which slices across all of the service DCGS programs, allows analysts from all services can access DCGS data gleaned from national, joint, interagency and multi-national assets.
