US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC

first_imgBack to overview,Home naval-today US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC View post tag: Second View post tag: board Authorities The second phase of the Navy’s Enlisted Retention Board convened at Navy Personnel Command (NPC) Sept. 26.ERB Phase II will review the records of 7, 792 Sailors in pay grades E-6 thru E-8 who meet eligibility requirements outlined in NAVADMIN 129/11. The quota and performance based board is charged with identifying the most fully qualified Sailors for retention. Combined, the first and second phase ERB will review approximately 16,000 records for about 13,000 available retention quotas. The primary criterion for retention is sustained superior performance.ERB was announced earlier this year as the Navy faces record-high retention and low attrition among active-duty Sailors. The purpose of the board is to reduce over manning in 31 ratings and to help the Navy meet congressionally mandated end-strength.The ERB was divided into two four-week phases in order to reduce the amount of time selection board members would be required to be away from their commands.The first phase of the ERB convened Aug. 22 to review the records of ERB-eligible Sailors in pay grades E-4 and E-5. That board adjourned Sept. 16 and forwarded its recommendations to NPC.Community managers from the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS) are currently reviewing the Phase I board’s recommendations for conversion opportunities outlined in NAVADMIN 180/11 before forwarding the board’s recommendations to the Chief of Naval Personnel for approval.Phase II results will also be reviewed by BUPERS for conversion opportunities after the board adjourns.Navy expects to release Phase I results in October and Phase II results in November.Sailors not selected for retention on active-duty are encouraged to consider Reserve affiliation and will have access to the Navy’s transition assistance management program and other benefits for members who are involuntary separated.[mappress]Source: navy, September 27, 2011 View post tag: of View post tag: Retention Share this article View post tag: NPC View post tag: At View post tag: Enlisted View post tag: Convenes US Navy Convenes Second Phase of Enlisted Retention Board at NPC View post tag: Navy September 27, 2011 View post tag: phase View post tag: Naval View post tag: US View post tag: News by topiclast_img read more

first_imgSource / photo: TZP Središnja Podravina; Podravski.hr Interpret Europe – European Association of Heritage Interpretation (European Association for Heritage Interpretation) today has thousands of members in more than 55 countries in Europe and the world. In addition to the course for guide interpreters, Interpret Europe conducts training for coaches, hosts, planners, writers and a revived history. The education was approached out of the desire to present the extremely rich natural and cultural heritage of Podravina in a different way through a personal approach, interaction and storytelling. It was attended by 18 participants who learned about the importance of interpreting natural and cultural heritage, the roles of interpreter guides, techniques and creation of interpretive speech, and the interpretation of revived history. The training was held during September in Hlebine, Goli and Virje. The course was organized by the Tourist Board of the Central Podravina region, and conducted by Iva Silla, a certified trainer from Zagreb, with the assistance of Elizabeta Milanović Glavica, director of the Central Podravina Tourist Board. The participants translated everything they learned in theory in the field into inspiring speeches about the specifics of the municipalities of Virje, Hlebine and Gola, which they held in different places in order to meet all the prerequisites for obtaining the Interpret Europe certificate.center_img “This education is an investment in creating innovative tourism products that will, I hope, connect the local community in joint projects.”, Said Milanović Glavica. The training was co-financed by the Croatian National Tourist Board, through a public call, and the first training of this type was held in a rural area on the continent. The Tourist Board of the Central Podravina region organized a ceremonial awarding of certificates to interpretation guides who have successfully completed the training under the Interpret Europe license, reports Podravski.hr.last_img read more

Stricter virus checkpoints to be implemented – Nograles

first_img Among the measures to be implemented by Highway Patrol officers starting Wednesday are the following: * Inspection of private vehicles to determine whether the driver and passengers belong to the list of authorized persons outside of residence or not. * If the driver or any of the passenger is unauthorized, authorities will issue tickets against drivers of private vehicles transporting persons who are unauthorized to be out of their homes. IATF spokesperson and Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said President Rodrigo Duterte has tasked the policemen manning checkpoints to implement a stricter screening process to check if travelers are allowed out of their homes. On Tuesday, there was an influx of vehicles travelling along South Luzon Expressway, while the Metropolitan Manila Development Authority reported an increase in vehicles plying EDSA. A line forms at a checkpoint between Marikina City and Antipolo, Rizal on Holy Monday, April 6, 2020, amid the start of the lockdown of Rizal province to curb the spread of COVID-19. ABS-CBN NEWS “Sana po intindihin natin na magiging effective lang itong ECQ sa pag-contain ng coronavirus disease 2019 kung tayo ay hindi basta-basta na lang nakakaikot at nakakalabas,” Nograles said./PN MANILA – Following reports of more vehicles plying main thoroughfares despite the ongoing enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) in Luzon, the Inter Agency Task Force (IATF) on Emerging Infectious Disease is looking at observing stricter checkpoints. The government only allows healthcare workers, frontliners, and other essential workers to go out of their homes. Each household meanwhile should only have a representative to buy food and basic needs.last_img read more

Tommy Stevens’ transfer portal entrance shows importance of grad transfer rule

first_imgIt worked out for both. It can work out here, too.Stevens will get his opportunity, too. He showed enough in a limited sample size behind McSorley that he will be a productive quarterback somewhere.This is Stevens’ last chance to play in the FBS, and he should be able to do that wherever he wants. If there’s any quarterback that has earned that right, then it’s him. Tommy Stevens waited four years for this opportunity at Penn State, and nobody can say he’s not a team player.Stevens sat behind Trace McSorley the last three seasons. He even played the “lion” position just to get on the field. Stevens waited for his turn, and now that it’s here it’s even more complicated. MORE: SN’s way-too-early top 25Stevens entered the transfer portal on Wednesday, just four days after junior Sean Clifford completed 11 of 19 passes for 131 yards and rushed for 31 yards in the Nittany Lions’ spring game. Stevens missed spring practice because of an injury suffered late last season.”Tommy’s done everything right,” Franklin said via The Daily Collegian. “For four years there is a huge body of work for what we’ve seen from him. Last year wasn’t fair to him because he was playing with an injury.”It’s fair for Penn State to roll with a different quarterback if Clifford wins the job. It’s also fair for Stevens to test the transfer portal, then come back and compete for the starting job in fall camp.Stevens’ plight backs up the need to keep graduate transfer rules intact for the future. He’s the textbook case of waiting your turn — what coaches like to preach in an era where transfer waivers are being handed out with almost no restrictions — and having a backup plan if it does not work out.The NCAA is considering putting restrictions on graduate transfers, which have become most amplified with quarterbacks shuffling across the FBS. Oklahoma’s Jalen Hurts, who started in two College Football Playoff championship games, was the highest-profile transfer this offseason.Quarterbacks like Stevens are the biggest reason why those limitations should not pass. He has done everything a student-athlete and team player is expected to do, and there needs to be a reward for that, whether it’s at Penn State or elsewhere.Nittany Lions fans shouldn’t have a problem with that.MORE: Tate Martell shows what’s right and wrong with QB shuffleStevens spoke with Sporting News last summer as part of a profile about McSorley, and was asked why he chose to stick around at a program knowing he would be a backup for three of his four seasons of eligibility.”Quarterbacks transfer all the time, and there’s always a want to play,” Stevens told SN. “I don’t want to make it seem like I don’t want to be the starting quarterback here; because that would be wrong. It’s just, there’s a lot of things that led up to this and led up to me being here, and I still feel like this is the right path for me.”Stevens was genuine. He spoke at length about his team-first mentality, relationship with McSorley and readiness to take advantage of his turn when it came. The fact he might not get that in Happy Valley might rub some the wrong way, but that is a consequence of the dizzying effects of the transfer portal at the game’s most-important position.This is the perfect time to make those decisions, too.The fact Stevens is in the transfer portal this soon after spring practice hints that Franklin likely will roll with Clifford in 2019. It is similar, in some ways, to the Dwayne Haskins-Joe Burrow dynamic in Columbus in spring practice last season.MORE: Ranking best transfer QBs for 2019 seasonBurrow waited his turn behind J.T. Barrett, but Haskins eventually passed Burrow on the depth chart. It worked out for Haskins — he ended up finishing third in the Heisman Trophy voting and set Big Ten single-season records in passing yards and touchdowns. It worked out for Burrow, too, who will be a second-year starter at LSU this season.last_img read more

South African referee honoured by IRB

first_img19 June 2012Paul Dobson was presented with the IRB Referee Award for Distinguished Service 2012 by IRB Council Member and South African Rugby Union CEO Jurie Roux at the IRB Junior World Championship semi-finals in Cape Town on Sunday.In a life devoted to rugby, not just as a referee, but also as a schools coach and writer, Dobson has made an exceptional contribution to the game in South Africa since taking the whistle of his first match in 1955, while a student in Pietermaritzburg.He joined the Western Province Referees Society in 1968 and took charge of more than 40 first class matches, becoming renowned for his authoritative, knowledgeable and fair style.“The IRB Referee Award for Distinguished Service recognises those who have contributed significantly to the area of officiating and there are few who have given more to referee development in South Africa than Paul Dobson. His contribution to the game over five decades as a referee, referee administrator and schools’ coach has changed the landscape of refereeing in the nation,” said Roux.‘An icon of refereeing in South Africa“He is an icon of refereeing in South Africa and is the mentor of guys like Andre Watson and other leading South African referees.”One of Dobson’s lasting legacies was his drive to unify the two different referees’ societies in South Africa, representing the then different Unions. By the end of 1991, Dobson had successfully navigated the merger and the referees were the first rugby body to achieve this, a year ahead of the unions becoming joined.“It’s always nice when your own people recognise you,” said Dobson after receiving the award. “But, they didn’t have to do it.“Dr Danie Craven said, ‘If you love something you never have to make sacrifices’, so I’ve never made sacrifices or felt I was serving. I loved doing it. I loved being with referees, I loved the whole business of refereeing and I’ve been one since 1968.‘I’ve enjoyed it tremendously’“It’s the friendship of it, being part of rugby football in a very special way. I’ve met marvellous people from all over the world and that’s been great. I’ve enjoyed it enormously,” he added.Dobson became chairman of the Western Province Society in 1985 and managed all aspects of refereeing in the region until his retirement in 1999. He was a member of the Western Province Rugby Council for 15 years. He is now a life member and honorary life president of the Western Province Rugby Referees’ Society.Dobson has, in recent years, turned his hand to rugby writing and his books on the game include: The Official History of South African Rugby, Doc: An Autobiography of Danie Craven and biographies on Nick Mallett and Andre Watson. He also manages content for the South African Rugby Union Referees’ website.His career as a school master saw him become South Africa’s youngest headmaster when he was appointed to the role at St Charles aged just 25. He joined the Bishops’ staff as a Latin teacher and during his 27 years on the staff he coached the under 15s and 16s.IRB AwardsThe IRB Referee Award for Distinguished Service is the second of the IRB Awards to be presented in 2012.In May, New Zealand’s playmaker Tomasi Cama was named IRB Sevens Player of the Year, in association with HSBC. Later this week, the IRB Junior Player of the Year 2012 will be announced following the conclusion of the IRB Junior World Championship.PREVIOUS WINNERS 2011 – Keith Lawrence2010 – Colin High2009 – Francis Palmade2008 – Andre Watson2007 – Dick Byres2006 – Peter Marshall2005 – Paddy O’Brien2004 – Jim Fleming2003 – Derek Bevan2002 – Colin Hawke2001 – Ed Morrison SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Google Hires Open Web Leader For Social Initiatives

first_imgRespected industry thought leader, Joseph Smarr, announced on his blog today that he is leaving Comcast-acquired Plaxo to join Google and help drive the company’s next steps in the social web. Smarr has been a key innovator in the OpenID, Oauth and related technical movements.Smarr’s work is all about enabling innovation by making it easy for users to move data from site to site. While noting Google’s support for specific open web technologies, Smarr also said: “Getting the future of the Social Web right – including identity, privacy, data portability, messaging, real-time data, and a distributed social graph – is just as important, and the industry is at a critical phase where the next few years may well determine the platform we live with for decades to come. “Smarr was the first non-founding employee of Plaxo, a dynamic contact management service that was once the darling of Silicon Valley, and then became its spammy boogeyman, and was finally acquired by Comcast 18 months ago. Plaxo was co-founded by Napster co-founder Sean Parker and was backed by Sequoia Capital, the fund that backed Google and YouTube.Chris Messina, fellow open-web leader and the self-described evangelist that helped turn Smarr from the dark side of Plaxo’s early days (“champions of the open web can come from all corners,” he told us), said of the move: “Smarr joining Google is a logical next step for him – I think he’s done great work at Plaxo with John McCrea, but advancing the open web has not been able to be his priority since he took on the CTO role there.”Kaliya Hamlin, who says she introduced Smarr to the Identity community, said of his move to Google: “His spirit and energy to get things done, work across company boundaries and a deep commitment to open standards innovation will be a great asset for Google. One thing that really stands out for me was his innovation with Microsoft on the Portable Contacts API. That idea originated at the Data Sharing Workshop seeking to make progress on what was possible and within six months under his leadership it was complete.”OpenID leader Scott Kveton said this announcement is just the beginning. “That’s great news,” he told us, “and just the first of more to come I hear. It’s going to be down to Google, Microsoft and Facebook. They are hiring all of the people building the open web. I’ll be curious to see what kind of impact it has.”Smarr photo by Adactio.

Ind vs Eng: Centurion Dravid saves the day for India

first_imgSachin Tendulkar may have disappointed by not scoring his 100th ton, but Rahul Dravid did not. Score | PhotosThe Wall stood tall scoring his 33rd Test, also his first at Lord’s, to help India put on 286 in reply to England’s first innings total of 474/8 declared, during the third day of the first Test at Lord’s in London on Saturday.In the process Dravid saved India from following on. But England still enjoyed the edge as their openers Andrew Strauss and Alastair Cook came down to bat and put on five runs. At stumps on Day 3 England were leading by 193 runs with 10 wickets in hand.However, all eyes were on Sachin Tendulkar, who came out into the hallowed greens of Lord’s, looked skywards and then gradually and steadily his numbers on the scoreboard started increasing, but Stuart Broad had other plans. He dismissed the Master Blaster on 34 putting an end to his hopes of a 100th ton.This was after Stuart Broad scalped openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund with his swingers in the first session.An overnight score of 17/0 was as good as a speck of dust in front of Kevin Pietersen’s double ton propelled 474. And India openers Gautam Gambhir and Abhinav Mukund had their task cut out – to stay in the middle for as long as possible.But that didn’t happen as Gambhir ended up losing his wicket cheaply. A swinging ball from Stuart Board crashed into his off stump and the southpaw was walking back on 15 when the team total was 63.advertisementMukund, on the other hand, seemed to be playing well against the England bolwers. He was effectively countering James Anderson and Stuart Broad’s swing and Chris Tremlett’s rising balls. Keeping the bat as straight as possible is key against such bowlers and that’s what he was doing.Later Mukund was joined by another batsman, who enjoys keeping the bat straight, it was Rahul Dravid. But their partnership too didn’t last long as once again it was Broad who broke their stand.And the delivery too was a similar to the one that took away Gambhir’s wicket. The ball kept low and came in swinging to crash into Mukund’s wicket when he was just one run away from his half-century. India lost their second wicket on 77.Then the moment arrived that that every cricket aficionado was waiting for. Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar stepped in and took guard, even as the world waited for him to complete his 100th international century.Tendulkar was batting 10 and Dravid on 15 and India score was 102/2 when lunch was called in.In the second session Tendulkar could be seen batting seamlessly even the England pacers were trying options for the Master Blaster. But his innings came to an abrupt end when he edged Stuart Broad towards the second slip where Graeme Swann made no mistake and Sachin Tendulkar was walked back on 34 and India were down to 158/3.Broad, who had taken India’s top three batsmen, could have scalped VVS Laxman and Rahul Dravid in his next over, but skipper Andrew Strauss and later Graeme Swann dropped sitters in the slips cordon.Soon Dravid went on to score a half-century. But no sooner had he reached there that his partner Laxman hooled out to Jonathan Trott in the deep off Chris Tremlett’s ball and India were down to 182/4.New man Suresh Raina, walked back as soon as he came in with Graeme Swann trapping him leg-before on a duck and India were down to 183/5.At tea, India were 193/5 with Rahul Dravid and skipper MS Dhoni in the middle.Dravid and Dhoni put on 57 runs for the sixth wicket before Tremlett stuck again to send the India skipper back and then a ball later he got rid of Turbanator Harbhajn Singh to reduce the visitors to 241/7.Dravid scored a ton as India were bowled out for 286.last_img read more

10 months agoReal Madrid captain Ramos: We’re failing in front of goal

first_imgReal Madrid captain Ramos: We’re failing in front of goalby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveReal Madrid captain Sergio Ramos says they must fight to stop their slide after defeat to Real Sociedad.Madrid have begun the New Year with one point from two games.Ramos said, “It upsets all of our plans. We would have liked to have got the year off to a good start, but it’s not turned out that way. We’re going through a bad spell. “The team performed well in spells but we lacked that cutting edge and luck in front of goal and had we had it, we’d be reflecting on a different result right now. We’ve been through a lot of tough times and this is another such spell. We’ve got to look at ourselves. It’s all about performing as best we can and being clinical, particularly because football is all about the results.”You go through periods in football where everything goes for you and right now nothing is going our way. Sometimes the woodwork gets in the way and at others you’re not creating the chances… We can’t blame the referee for the result, although he had a defining role, but we’ve also got to look at ourselves. “We’re going to keeping battling, but it’s difficult because Barcelona don’t usually slip up and the gap is opening up. We’re going to stick together and fight until the end. Real Madrid won’t lie down, even if we’re kicked seven times.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
