first_img At 7 a.m. on September 10, Camp Blanding, Florida witnessed the final phase of military exercises under the seventh edition of operation Partnership of the Americas (POA). This year, the U.S. Marine Corps hosted their counterparts from Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Paraguay, Peru, and Uruguay. The 13-day training exercise, the first phase of which began on September 2 is run by the U.S. Marine Forces, South (MARFORSOUTH) – a component of U.S. Southern Command – as part of the broader military exercise known as UNITAS. Latin for “unity,” this is a combined South America and U.S. Military-sponsored exercise series which has been taking place annually for the last 57 years. The amphibious component of POA is taking place at Naval Station Mayport, Florida, while the rehearsals and land personnel training are being developed in Camp Blanding. Both places are close to Jacksonville, Florida. “Our objective each year is to bring together all the Marine Corps of the Western Hemisphere in order to work together on tactical operations on air, land and sea to develop missions for the support of peace, sovereignty defense, and humanitarian assistance in all of the U.S. Southern Command’s partner nations,” Colonel Agustín Bolanio, director of POA 2012, told Diálogo. Even when the United States serves as the host country, POA is clearly a multi-national effort. This is obvious by watching the different colors of each of the uniforms and emblems of the participating countries, as well as by the languages in which the trainings are developed. The Partner Nations all come together with common interests to establish and maintain stability in the region, and send specialized personnel in predetermined arenas. For example, some are experts in aquatic operations, while others specialize in rescue missions and yet others in humanitarian aid. “But at the end, we all come to learn from one another. We want to learn from them just as much as they want to learn from us,” said Col. Bolanio. There are many outstanding events on the training calendar. Some of the most notable ones include the military operations on urban terrain, most closely related to amphibious vehicles, and the wide array of exercises with real fire. These rehearsals offer the Marines of every nation an opportunity to analyze real situations that they face daily in their home countries. But in addition, – as expressed to Diálogo by some of the participants – it gives them the capability to exchange knowledge, tactics and skills while giving them the chance to also build strong bonds of friendship, cooperation and mutual understanding, which will result in peace and progress across the region.

first_img Leigh Roche gets the nod to partner fellow Al Maktoum-owned runner Tahaany, who stepped up to this level last time out when fourth in the Athasi Stakes at the Curragh. Euphrasia, who served up a 33-1 shock when making all in this race last year, is back to defend her crown but she has concede upwards of 3lb to the field. Trainer Joseph Murphy said of the five-year-old: “I’m expecting a big run. It was yielding to soft last year when she won and hopefully it is the same. “She’s a filly who is very good on her day. I’m happy with her since Gowran Park (where she ran last month). Gary Carroll rides Cristal Fashion so we had to go hunting for a jockey so Wayne Lordan rides her.” Mizzava, the highest-rated filly in the race off a mark of 105, represents Mick Halford. The four-year-old was fifth in both the Irish 1,000 Guineas and the Coronation Stakes last year and she holds an entry in the Pretty Polly Stakes in the Curragh at the end of June. Halford said: “I was happy with her in Gowran. She has come on a lot since then. This looks a good opportunity for her. I’m hoping she will progress as the season goes on. She settles in her races and I’ve no worries about her getting the trip.” Des McDonogh’s Morga is an intriguing contender, having finished fifth in a Group Three at the Curragh in March before winning a maiden hurdle at Cork and then a novice hurdle at the Punchestown Festival. McDonogh said: “She’s in such good form that we have decided to run. There’s nothing to run her in over hurdles now. She’s in good heart and has come on from Punchestown. This is my first ever runner in a Group race. She’s owned by Jim Bolger’s wife and Kevin Manning is on board. It would be great to get some black type with her.” Champion trainer Aidan O’Brien runs Dazzling, who holds engagements in the Irish 1,000 Guineas and Irish Oaks and is likely to go off favourite. Cristal Fashion for Ger Lyons and Paul Deegan’s Achnaha also line up. Earlier on the card, O’Brien’s War Envoy goes head to head with the Lyons-trained Cappella Sansevero in the Fishery Lane Race. Both impressed on their debuts, with War Envoy winning at Naas, while Lyons’ runner scored at Dundalk. The Rosewell House trainer relies on three-year-old fillies Tarfasha, who is making her seasonal reappearance, and Tahaany, a winner already during this campaign, in the mile-and-a-quarter heat at Naas. Tarfasha won her juvenile maiden in Galway last July before signing off in September with a third-placed finish to My Titania in a Curragh Group Three. Pat Smullen takes the mount on Hamdan Al Maktoum’s filly. Dermot Weld holds a strong hand in Wednesday’s Group Three Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F.

No!

(Image: SADAG)Brand South Africa ReporterThe South African Depression and Anxiety Group (Sadag) has partnered with the Department of Social Development in launching a toll-free substance abuse helpline in an effort to increase access to help, support and appropriate treatment for substance users.The toll-free helpline number is 0800 121314, while SMS’s can also be sent to 32312.The launch in Johannesburg on Thursday coincided with the International Day Against Abuse and Illicit Trafficking – commemorated to raise awareness surrounding drugs and drug abuse – with this year’s event being themed “Do drugs control your life?”Sadag project director Janine Shamos said that many people were marginalised or at risk due to their life-circumstances and were made more vulnerable through drug use.“This line offers support, guidance and help for people addicted to drugs and alcohol as well as their families, no matter where they are in South Africa,” said Shamos.She added that substance abuse was a major problem in the country and that users were getting younger all the time, and that there was the need for youth empowerment and for youngsters to take control of their lives and not let drugs control them.‘A drug-taking society’“According to South African Community Epidemiology Network on Drug Use, in the Northern Cape, 36% of patients admitted to rehabilitation and treatment centres for substance abuse were aged between 10 and 19,” said Shamos.The Youth Risk Survey of 2002 revealed that 49% of teens use alcohol while 31% smoke cigarettes and 13% used dagga (cannabis).She warned that drug and alcohol abuse ate away at people’s lives, families, resources and their ability to cope.“Most of us use drugs every day – caffeine, nicotine, alcohol,” she said. “Ours is a drug taking society and more people are abusing drugs today than in any other time in history”“Sadag has found a way to bring back hope,” Shamos said.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

first_imgWhat you see at the top of the page is the solar canopy, made up of bifacial photovoltaic modules. It gathers sunlight from above and reflected light from below, and gets a boost in production compared to standard photovoltaics covering the same area. On Appalachian State’s Solar Homestead, the solar array is rated at 8.2 kilowatts of power production and can generate an average of about 37 kilowatt-hours of electricity per day in Boone, North Carolina.The really neat thing about the solar canopy was that it created a lot of usable outdoor space to hang out. In fact, Dr. Ball told me that when it was in Washington, DC for the competition, the Solar Homestead became THE place to hang out, with students playing guitar and enjoying the outdoors under the canopy. That’s probably a big reason this entry won the People’s Choice Award.There were a lot of cool features in this home. Here are a few:A system for using a phase-change material for heat storage, which Dr. Ball said they invented and are working on patenting (photo below)Minisplit heat pumps — one ductless, one ducted Passive solar features that help with heating the small houseI’m certainly no architect, but I was impressed with the design of the house, too. According to the Solar Decathlon rules, the maximum size is 1,000 square feet of conditioned floor area, and they used those square feet well. The house didn’t feel cramped at all and had some pretty neat design touches.The living room, shown below, had student-designed furniture, including the coffee table that opens up into a dining room table. The space also had, I thought, the right amount of windows for capturing heat and bringing in natural light without overdoing it. It’s definitely a space I’d hang out in. There’s a good reason they took third place for the architecture competition. Twelve years ago, I discovered the Solar Decathlon. I was a new physics professor at a small university in Georgia, and I’d received a packet from the US Department of Energy describing the competition. It was set to have its first run in 2002, so I tried to figure out how to get involved and put together an entry. We didn’t have design or construction programs, however, and the physics department that I was in was one of the most dysfunctional groups of people the world has ever seen. So instead I built a house for myself and left the academic world behind in 2004.In case you haven’t heard of the Solar Decathlon before, here’s what the DOE’s project website says about its objectives. The Solar Decathlon:Educates students and the public about the money-saving opportunities and environmental benefits presented by clean-energy products and design solutionsDemonstrates to the public the comfort and affordability of homes that combine energy-efficient construction and appliances with renewable energy systems available todayProvides participating students with unique training that prepares them to enter our nation’s clean-energy workforce. Innovative design featuresIn 2007, I got to see Georgia Tech’s Solar Decathlon entry, and this year I got a tour of Appalachian State University’s entry, the “Solar Homestead.” I was speaking to Dr. Lee Ball’s sustainable design class that day, and he graciously took me to see it afterward. I was quite impressed. RELATED ARTICLES Appalachian State’s Solar Homestead2011 Solar Decathlon Resource GuideSolar Homestead Web sitecenter_img The Solar Decathlon is a winnerOne problem experienced by both of the Solar Decathlon homes I’ve visited is the difficulty of finding a home for the home after the contest. I don’t know what ever happened to Georgia Tech’s entry, but a year after the Appalachian State Solar Homestead came back from Washington, it’s sitting in Boone, used for the occasional tour and some classes.Overall, though, the Solar Decathlon is a great event. When the homes are on display, thousands of people visit them and learn about energy efficiency, cool new technologies, and solar energy. In 2011, the homes had more than 350,000 visits in the 10 days they were open to the public, according to DOE. Also, 17,000 college students have participated since the competition began a decade ago. That’s a lot of learning!If you ever find yourself in Boone, North Carolina, go check out the Solar Homestead. Also, if you’re interested in buying one, Deltec Homes now has this design for sale as a net zero energy home (without the phase-change heat storage system). Allison Bailes of Decatur, Georgia, is a speaker, writer, energy consultant, RESNET-certified trainer, and the author of the Energy Vanguard Blog.
