Bush (CVN 77) participated in a prayer and remembrance service in the ship’s foc’sle Sept. 9, commemorating the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.Approximately 100 Sailors attended the service to show their support for America, honor lost heroes, and to give thanks for the lives that were spared that day.“My uncle worked about two blocks away from the World Trade Center,” said Aviation Boatswain’s Mate (Fueling) 3rd Class Robert Villafane. “He was late for work on the day of the attacks. I think that might have saved his life.”Cmdr. Cameron H. Fish, the ship’s command chaplain, and Lt. Joel DeGraeve, command chaplain for Carrier Air Wing (CVW) Eight, hosted the non-denominational prayer service so that Sailors could come together to remember the events of 9/11.“We felt it was important to try and get the crew together to pray and remember as a unit, especially since it’s the 10th anniversary,” said Fish.Sailors like Aviation Ordnanceman Airman (AW) Maurice D. Rogers-Ashe and Rear Adm. Nora W. Tyson, commander Carrier Strike Group (CSG) Two, united to sing “God Bless America” and reflect on the events of Sept. 11, 2001. “I came to show my respect and honor those who have lost family and loved ones,” said RogersAshe.Participants watched a video displaying photos of service members, firefighters, and civilians that were lost that day as excerpts from former president George W. Bush’s speech played in the background. “I think it helps Sailors understand why they’re here,” said DeGraeve, “It helps them understand why we serve in the military.”George H.W. Bush is deployed to the U.S. 5th Fleet area of responsibility on its first operational deployment conducting maritime security operations and support missions as part of Operations Enduring Freedom and New Dawn.[mappress]Source: navy, September 13, 2011; View post tag: Remembers Back to overview,Home naval-today USS George H.

Lightning Rule.

first_imgSpring and summer in Georgia means outdoor activities and thunderstorms. In the United States, lightning kills more people than hurricanes or tornadoes. And using a simple “30-30” rule can help keep you safe during thunderstorms.The 30-30 rule for thunderstorm safety is simple: when you hear thunder within 30 seconds of a lightning flash, seek shelter and stay there at least 30 minutes after the last lightning flash.Start counting as soon as you see a lightning flash and keep counting until you hear the thunder associated with the flash.Since sound travels at about 5 seconds per mile, a 30-second count means lightning has struck within 6 miles of you. That’s within the striking distance of lightning.If less than 30 seconds elapses between the lightning flash and the sound of its thunder, seek shelter immediately.The Best ShelterThe best shelter is a sturdy building. A hardtop car is a fair second choice. But small sheds, picnic shelters, baseball dugouts and bleachers don’t offer adequate protection from lightning.Once you’ve found shelter, remain there until the threat of lightning has passed — generally 30 minutes. More than half of all lightning deaths occur after the storm has passed.An important part of lightning safety is to remain aware of weather conditions. While outside, be aware of dark and threatening clouds that may be forming thunderstorms. Being aware will give you more time to seek shelter.Danger Before the StormYou may not hear thunder before the storm is close enough to cause damage. Lightning can exit a thunderstorm cloud directly to the ground, or can strike to the side of the cloud long distances away.Besides the 30-30 rule, there are other lightning safety rules everyone should follow during thunderstorms.If you’re inside, stay away from doors, windows and metal indoor plumbing fixtures and electrical devices.Electricity from lightning can enter a building along telephone or power lines, television cables or water lines. Avoid taking baths or showers, washing clothes or dishes or using wired telephones or electrical devices such as computers, televisions or stereos.If You’re Outside…If you’re outside, avoid water, open high ground and isolated large trees. Lightning often, but not always, strikes the highest point in the area, so don’t let yourself be the highest object around.If caught on the water, get to shore as quickly as you can. If the watercraft can’t make it to shore fast enough, make yourself as low as possible without touching metal.Swimming or wading in the water during a thunderstorm is very dangerous.If caught outside, it’s best not to huddle together in groups. Individuals should squat several feet apart in low places away from trees and other tall objects.Shun Lightning ConductorDon’t stand near a tall and isolated lightning conductor, either, since the lightning current can travel through the ground and through water for some distance. Avoid metal, including tractors, fences, golf clubs, towers and antennas.Don’t lean against metal objects such as fences, cars or bicycles, either.If you see someone hit by lightning, summon emergency aid as soon as possible and go to that person’s help as soon as you can.Help Lightning VictimsMany lightning victims are only stunned or have their hearts temporarily stopped. They can often be saved by the timely application of rescue breathing, CPR or defibrillators. As many as 90 percent of lightning strike victims survive with prompt emergency care.Following simple lightning safety rules can help ensure that your outdoor activities are safe and worry-free.More lightning safety guidelines may be found at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Lightning Safety Web page (www.lightningsafety.noaa.gov/outdoors.htm).A web page for lightning safety for children is at www.azstarnet.com/~anubis/sabintro.htm.

‘I’m back’ declares Mike Tyson in training video

first_imgThe newest video showed Tyson growling through a workout hitting the pads in yet another display of the ferocious power that made him one of the sport’s most feared punchers.Would you fight 53-year-old Mike Tyson for $10k?pic.twitter.com/YRJVIw8jUS— Jose Rosado 🔥🔥🔥 (@joserosado) May 11, 2020Since Tyson hinted at a return, challengers have been lining up for a shot at the boxer known as “Iron Mike”.New Zealand rugby great Sonny Bill Williams, who dabbled in boxing posting a 7-0-0 record, and Australian Paul Gallen, another rugby player with a 9-0-1 record in the ring, have been touted as potential opponents.A more likely bet, however, would be Evander Holyfield with whom Tyson engaged in several epic bouts during their professional careers.If Tyson, who retired after a loss to Kevin McBride in 2005, does return to the ring, he will be following in the footsteps of Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao in coming out of retirement for an exhibition fight.Tyson, who became the youngest heavyweight champion of all time when he defeated Trevor Berbick in 1986 aged 20, won 50 of his 58 professional fights before retiring.Topics : Former-world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson continued to tease boxing fans about a possible return to the ring by posting another training video on Instagram on Monday that ended with the message, “I’m back”.The 53-year-old caught the attention of the boxing world last week when he posted a short video of a workout that showed he possesses plenty of the punching power and speed that allowed him to become the first heavyweight to hold the WBA, WBC and IBF titles.Tyson said then that he was considering a return to the ring for some exhibition bouts to raise money for charity.last_img read more
