timberland walking shoes Air Force debate future of JSTARS mission at Robins AFB

The United States Congress and the Air Force are trying to decide what to do with the Joint Surveillance Target Attack Radar System, known as JSTARS, mission, which is based solely out of Robins Air Force Base.

The Base says the JSTARS aircraft and crews have been serving continuous deployments to combat areas since 9/11. The 116th Air Control Wing and Georgia Air National Guard own the 16 aircraft.

2,460 Active Duty, and Georgia Air National Guard airmen and women operate the JSTARS. That number does not include the civilians that work on the aircraft or support systems at Robins Air Force Base.

Overall, the JSTARS alone account for $195 million in economic impact for Central Georgia, according to the 116th Public Affairs information.

Air Force leaders and JSTARS advocates are at odds about continuing the program.

Director of Strategy for the 21st Century Partnership, Daniel Rhoades, explained the Air Force’s argument.

systems that they currently have and future weapons systems would be able to provide some or all of the capability, Rhoades explained in his office on Wednesday.

Rhoades and other JSTARS supporters say they don’t think that’s the case. They support replacing the JSTARS equipment with a new weapons system and aircraft, otherwise known as recapitalization, instead of discontinuing the mission entirely. Not only that, they don want JSTARS to cease operations until replacement equipment and technology is fully in place and ready to go.

Rhoades says it would take 6 to 8 Global Hawk unmanned aircraft to cover the same area a JSTARS aircraft can on its own, the Air Force only has 11 Global Hawks.

He also said plans to install the radar equipment on F 35s would distract from the F 35s other missions as a jet fighter.

So far, recapitalization efforts have garnered $750 million, if Fiscal Year 2018 defense bill goes through. Rhoades says Boeing, Bombardier, and GulfStream are leading the effort to be the company to replace the current aircraft.

JSTARS provides combat surveillance and can talk directly to commanders in the field. The planes and crews of sometimes up to 22 people are also able to track 200 enemies at a time and cover an area of 20,000 square miles.

is out there saving lives, it is out there providing persistent coverage and giving commanders the actionable information that they need to fight the war. To pull it out now, without something to replace it does a disservice to our troops in the field, Rhoades said.

He not the only one stressing the mission importance.

Georgia two United States Senators are also pushing legislation to protect JSTARS.

have been working for years to ensure the JSTARS program is recapitalized. It has proven itself indispensable in our campaign to defeat ISIL, in counter terrorism operations, and even during recent hurricane disaster responses. I will continue working to help ensure this critical fleet receives needed support from Congress, said Republican Senator Johnny Isakson.

no mistake, our military needs to have cutting edge platforms and equipment to use in combat today and in the future. Today, JSTARS is our nation premier Battle Management, Command and Control (BMC2) asset used in theater. In fact, right now, the Air Force does not have another asset that can sufficiently replace JSTARS capabilities. It’s extremely concerning that the Air Force is considering ending this critical program without a plan to avoid a potential extended capability gap, said Republican Senator David Perdue.

On Wednesday, Senator Perdue office said he was in a conference meeting to settle the differences between the House and Senate DAA Perdue staff say they expect a new combined bill to come out of conference for a Congressional vote after Thanksgiving of this year. Representatives Austin Scott, Sanford Bishop, and Tom Graves, sent a letter to Defense Secretary James Mattis to express their support for the program.

The letter says in part:

the rationale for this decision has not been made known to us, cancelling or delaying would be ill advised and directly impact our combatant commanders who employ this asset in theater. There is no alternative for JSTARS and indicators of its retirement are unacceptable. Without this capability, we greatly diminish our nation airpower and reduce our combat strength. letter also points out ongoing JSTARS operations in anti drug operations, combat zones, and in Africa.

At the end of the letter, the group reiterates their pressure on the Air Force to recapitalize the mission quickly and to support JSTARS.

Senior Advisor to the 21st Century Partnership, Chrissy Miner, says their allies in Congress and at the state and local government levels have done excellent work to support JSTARS.

She also says the mission is important to the entire area, not just Warner Robins.

3,000 jobs to the economy of Middle Georgia, and not only that, it’s the only active duty flying mission that we have at Robins Air Force Base, so from a national defense perspective, it’s critically important, and from a Middle Georgia perspective, it’s critically important, Miner said on Wednesday.

Rhoades agreed, saying other existing weapons systems in the Air Force would not be able to do the work JSTARS does by themselves.

Lastly, he expressed concern that it would reduce the speed in which combat commanders would get valuable, and potentially life saving, combat information if it were spread over multiple aircraft and weapons systems.

timberland girls sandals Air Canada ditches Aeroplan reward miles to pilot own rewards program

timberland boots wiki Air Canada ditches Aeroplan reward miles to pilot own rewards program

TORONTO Air Canada said Thursday it will launch its own loyalty rewards plan in 2020 and not renew its contract with the company running Aeroplan, sending Aimia stock plummeting by more than 50 per cent and angering some points collectors.

The Montreal based airline (TSX:AC) says customers will be able to continue collecting Aeroplan points until June 2020, after which miles earned from flying on Air Canada or its 26 Star Alliance partners will be credited to the in house loyalty program instead. Travellers will be able to redeem those points for Air Canada and Star Alliance flights.

The airline said it intends to continue allowing Aeroplan members to redeem their Aeroplan points for seats on their flights after June 2020. However, Aimia CEO said that isn certain yet, as there are still a lot of discussions to be had.

Some Aeroplan members didn react kindly to the development on social media. Others worried they wouldn be able to use Aeroplan points for Air Canada and Star Alliance flights beyond June 2020 and were concerned they have to rush to redeem points before it was too late.

This isn the only time in recent history Canadians have felt short shrifted by a loyalty program. LoyaltyOne, the company that operates Air Miles, upset consumers when it announced it would change its policy so collectors would lose any miles they don use within five years. The policy, which was to take effect Dec. 31, 2016, was cancelled following a consumer backlash.

Aimia CEO David Johnston said in an interview the company is exploring a range of alternatives for its business after Air Canada contract ends, including pursuing other partners.

is something we anticipated, Johnston said in an interview on his first day on the job after serving several months on an interim basis. The company announced Wednesday evening that Rupert Duchesne, who has been on medical leave, is retiring from the top role.

He assured the program five million customers they can expect a smooth transition.

three years left to run on the contract and in that period, it business as usual, Johnston said.

Even so, Aimia (TSX:AIM) shares fell 57 per cent to $3.80. Air Canada stock rose 8.5 per cent to $16.16.

Air Canada said in a statement it aiming to strengthen its relationships with customers in making the switch. It declined to comment further on the change.

Analysts called the news positive for the airline. However, RBC Dominion Securities Inc. analyst Derek Spronck said in a note that it remains to be seen what the transition costs will be and why Air Canada assumes the net present value of the program repatriation over 15 years to be more than $2 billion. The airline said it will provide more detail on this at its investor day on Sept. 19, 2017.

Aeroplan was originally Air Canada in house loyalty program. It was spun off as an independent business, now called Aimia Inc., which has expanded its customer base and evolved its services over the years.

The company has 5 million active members, who have a total of about 200 billion miles on their balances.

5 things to know about Aeroplan points and Air Canada

Here what that means for the five million Aeroplan members earning rewards for flying Air Canada and redeeming points for flights with the national carrier:

1. What happens to my Aeroplan points?

Nothing. Your Aeroplan balance remains intact, unless you choose to redeem points for flights or other rewards.

What changes is how you earn points after June 2020 and, possibly, what you can buy with those points.

2. I booked a flight in the future on Air Canada using Aeroplan points. What happens to my booking?

Members who have already planned trips and booked flights with their Aeroplan points will still be able to travel as planned.

3. What points do I earn when I fly on Air Canada?

Until Air Canada contract with Aimia expires in June 2020, miles earned for travel on Air Canada flights will be credited to travellers Aeroplan accounts.

After that, travellers who fly on Air Canada will earn points towards the company own loyalty program.

I must say I always gave 100%, until the last day, when I asked to the Mister to be in the team, because I wanted to be a contribution.

It’s no secret that Kool Aid and upholstery don’t mix. The dye in Kool Aid can leave unsightly stains on your furniture, but a little TLC can remove the stains and leave your upholstery looking like new. The sooner you get to a Kool Aid stain, the better you’ll have more luck removing it if the spill is still wet. However, even if the Kool Aid stain is already dry, it’s still possible to get it out, and no one will be the wiser.

1Blot wet Kool Aid stains with a soft white cloth to remove as much of the liquid as possible. Press down on the stain repeatedly, lifting the cloth straight up, rather than rubbing.

2Mix 1 teaspoon dye free dish washing liquid with 1 tablespoon white vinegar and 1/2 cup water in a spray bottle. As an alternative, omit the vinegar and mix the dish washing liquid with 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide.

3Spray the solution generously onto the Kool Aid stain and allow it to sit for 30 minutes,
timberland duck boots Aid Out of Upholstery
blotting with a white cloth every five minutes. After you blot, spray on more liquid.

4Fill the spray bottle with plain water and saturate the stain again. Repeat the blotting process until you remove as much of the stain and soap as possible.

5Apply rubbing alcohol to a clean white cloth and blot again if the stain remains. As an alternative, sprinkle salt on the stain, allow it to dry and vacuum it away.

Warnings Do not attempt to remove Kool Aid stains yourself if you are unsure of the fiber content of the upholstery or if the fabric is antique. Consult a professional cleaner. Test an inconspicuous area with the cleaning solution for colorfastness before applying it to the Kool Aid stain. Do not use heat to dry the spot, as this can set the stain.

Agricultural ministers have reached an agreement on the core elements of a new framework, which will be called the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Last week at the Annual Meeting of Federal, Provincial and Territorial Ministers of Agriculture, held in St.

is the heart of this agreement, the provinces, territories, and the federal government all working hard to keep the sector on solid footing, said Minister of Agriculture and Agri Food, Lawrence MacAulay.

The five year plan is a $3 billion investment, which will come into effect on April 1, 2018.

The partnership aims to strengthen the sector and to ensure continued innovation, growth and prosperity. As well, producers will have continued access to a suite of business risk management programs, such as crop insurance, AgriStability and AgriInvest.

There are six priority areas in the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, which will focus on science, research and innovation, markets and trade, environmental sustainability and climate change, value added agriculture and agri food processing, public trust, and risk management.

we did was listen to people across the country. We listened to the sector and addressed the concerns of the sector, said MacAulay.

The new partnership will maintain the same level of funding as Growing Forward 2,
timberland sizes Agriculture ministers reach Canadian Agricultural Partnership
with Canada and Saskatchewan investing a total of $388 million over the five year period for strategic initiatives in the province.

Canadian Agricultural Partnership will help ensure agriculture producers and industry have access to important funding to innovate, expand, and help Saskatchewan remain a world class agri food producer and supplier, said Saskatchewan Agriculture Minister, Lyle Stewart, in a statement.

However, Stewart noted he agreed to things like the reference margin limits, and something he disagreed on was the late participation in AgriStability.

does not support late participation in AgriStability, as we believe it goes directly against the principle of proactive risk management, and does not fix a problem producers have identified, said Stewart.

have no intention of triggering late participation under any circumstances in the province. However, in order to reach a deal, the other benefits of this agreement made it important for Saskatchewan to sign on to continue to provide uninterrupted programming for our producers.

Changes in AgriStability include the addition of a late participation mechanism, so provincial and territorial governments can allow producers to enter the program late, in situations where there is significant income decline and a gap in participation.

The benefits, however, will be reduced by 20 per cent for producers who enrol late.

The agreement reached by the ministers now sets the stage for federal, provincial and territorial governments to conclude bilateral agreements by April 1, 2018.

sat down, 13 ministers with myself, and put this program together, and it will do nothing but make sure that the agriculture sector in this country will be able to meet the goals we have, which is to make sure that we have an increased export of $75 billion by 2025. That what we all want and that what we will do, said Stewart.

timberland childrens clothing agent splash at tight end

timberland shoes for kids agent splash at tight end

Of the four teams playing in the NFL conference championship games Sunday, three have tight ends who play major roles in their offense.

Rob Gronkowski led the New England Patriots in receptions (69) in the regular season, has a 15.7 yard average per catch which is astronomical for a tight end and is one of the better blockers at his position in the league.

For that matter, even Jacksonville Marcedes Lewis led his team in touchdown catches (five) playing in a Blake Bortles led offense that had the most rushing attempts and yards in the league.

There a good reason coach Mike McCarthy values the position. As NFL rules continue to evolve to protect receivers from big hits, tight ends have become more and more valuable in the passing game.

can have enough big body types running through the middle of the field, McCarthy said last summer.

If the Packers have any position that ripe for new general manager Brian Gutekunst to fill in free agency, it tight end, despite his predecessor big swings and misses at that position last year.

RELATED: Brian Gutekunst will be own man as Packers GM

DOUGHERTY: Difficult receiver decisions loom for Packers

Ted Thompson tried to give McCarthy two good receiving tight ends last year when he signed Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks on back to back days in March. But those plans flopped.

Bennett blocked well enough but couldn run at all anymore at age 30. He be remembered mostly for excessive drops before he bowed out after seven games because of a shoulder injury.

Kendricks at age 29 wasn a threat in the passing game (18 catches) and played a lot only because Bennett shut it down.

But that doesn mean it was a mistake to try in free agency, it just meant the Packers signed the wrong guys. Jared Cook showed just what a fast tight end can do for McCarthy offense in 2016, and he was a free agent, too.

Tight end is one of the most difficult positions for rookies to make much of a difference because of the dual responsibility of learning the sophisticated NFL passing game plus playing a significant role as a blocker. That a lot for a rookie to take on. In the last 10 years, only four rookie tight ends have caught at least 50 passes, and only 12 have caught at least 40.

So for immediate help, Gutekunst probably will have to look to free agency, and there a decent chance a big, interesting name will be available: Jimmy Graham.

Graham at one time was a premier player (four seasons of 80 catches or more) and is coming off a season in Seattle that was good enough (57 catches, 10 touchdowns) to get him to his fifth Pro Bowl.

There a chance he be available because his contract ran out after this season and the Seahawks have invested so much money on defense the last few years that they very well might decide they don have the cap room to bring Graham back.

At a little over 6 foot 6, Graham not the athlete he used to be and has had a recurring knee problem in recent years, though it wasn much of a problem in 2017 (he didn miss a game). He ran the 40 in 4.56 seconds coming out of college in 2010 but isn that fast eight years later. So teams will have to study him hard before deciding just how big an investment he worth for the next couple of years.

He also a terrible blocker, so any team signing him has to go in with eyes open about what he offers. He essentially a huge receiver.

RELATED: Packers’ coaching staff shaping up with latest moves

DOUGHERTY: Packers poised for free agent pursuits

PODCAST: How will Packers handle receiver and tight end?

a really, really good red zone player because he tall so he can jump over guys, said an assistant coach for a team in Seattle NFC West Division. physical enough and tall enough that you can throw him a fade route, he hard for a DB to manage on his own. For that part, yes, he very valuable. Graham averaged 32 fewer catches (57 to 89) in his three seasons with the Seahawks than in his final four with the Saints.

One reason for the decline was going from a prolific passing offense with one of the NFL best passers (Drew Brees) at quarterback to the run oriented Seahawks with scrambler Russell Wilson pulling the trigger. Also, the Seahawks used him more as an in line tight end than the Saints, which would seem to have defeated the purpose of acquiring him in the first place.

is a perfect (pass catching tight end), the assistant coach said. That the problem, you make a lot of decisions on big play ability, and then you can run the ball because you got all these guys that can block. If Seattle doesn re sign him before free agency starts, he be the top rated tight end on the market, with nobody a close second. While his age and knee issues will have to factor in, he figures to command at least $7 million to $8 million a year, and maybe more with the salary cap expected to rise another $10 million.

Some of the other tight ends who will be available if they don re sign before the start of free agency are Cincinnati Tyler Eifert, a talented former first round pick and major injury risk who has missed more games (41) than he has played (39) in five NFL seasons; Philadelphia Trey Burton, an undersized (6 3, 235) backup who caught five touchdown passes this season; Carolina 30 year old Ed Dickson, who ran 4.59 coming out of Oregon and Seattle backup Luke Willson, a sleeper who never has caught more than 22 passes in any of his five NFL seasons but ran 4.51 coming out of Rice in 2013.

There no denying the Packers have a big hole in their offense at the tight end position, and the chances of a rookie filling it immediately, even a talented one, aren good. If any position is crying out for Gutekunst to sign a free agent, and maybe even making a big splash with Graham, this is it.

Navy personnel at the gate, prompting the deployment of “final denial barriers” large, backward ramps that protrude from the ground, making forward progress in a vehicle virtually impossible.

A hazardous materials response was launched to identify the substance, treat those affected and protect the base and its occupants.

Capt. Chris Janke, basecommanding officer,said the operation combines “pieces and parts” of real world events. In past years, exercises have included earthquakes, terrorist attacks and plane crashes.

Janke also said the exercises play a crucial role in testing not only the responses of individual units from the base, such as the Federal Fire Department but also coordination with outside agencies such as the Ventura County Fire Department.

“We like to,

“Although we have a great team here and this equipment, it’s not near the capability that the county has,” he said. Army and base police called Commander, Navy Region Southwest Police also engaged in the exercise.

For about three hours, in cloudy weather that eventually gave way to sunshine, fire, police and military agenciescoordinated with each other to respond to the simulated emergency.

Roadways were blocked off, and two federal firefighters donned gas masks and hazardous materials gear to examine the vehicle.

A semi had been parked at the entry gate for the occasion, occupied by a role player portraying the uncooperative driver.

Janke said the exercise was an important event due to an infrequency of opportunities.
