USS Nimitz Sailor Wins EIDWS Pin

David Buss, commander, Naval Air Forces.One Sailor in particular, Senior Chief (SW/EIDWS/AW) Intelligence Specialist James Christopher Williams received the Enlisted Information Dominance Warfare Specialist (EIDWS) pin.Three months ago, Nimitz provided enlisted Sailors of the Information Dominance Corps (IDC) community on board the opportunity to obtain the newest warfare pin in the Navy. While other Sailors have earned the pin at other commands, Williams is the first person to earn the pin while on board Nimitz.“It took about three months to complete,” said Williams.The EIDWS personnel qualifications standards (PQS) consist of skills and knowledge relating to the information dominance warfare doctrine, policy, history and warfare-fighting capabilities.“It’s mandatory for my rating,” said Williams. “Anybody in an information dominance corps rating is required to get it.”The EIDWS pin can be earned by Sailors within the Information Dominance Corps (IDC) ratings. Which include: Information Systems Technician (IT), Cryptologic Technician (CT), Intelligence Specialists (IS), Aerographer’s Mate (AG) and Sailors who are in direct support of the IDC mission.With only a few qualified people on Nimitz, there was a list of subject matter experts who helped sign off his packet.“So you go see those subject matter experts,” said Williams. “They sign your line items and help you learn the things that are important to study. It’s entirely possible to be designated as a subject matter expert, but not have the pin, otherwise you wouldn’t have enough people.”For the IDC community on board Nimitz, the introduction of the warfare pin is a big step forward.“The reason we as a community thought it was important is because I was the first one to earn it on the ship, that is significant because that was part of what made our program official,” said Williams. “Navy Cyber Warfare Command had to send somebody here to observe that first board, so the board had very little to do with me, but established our program here on the ship.”Williams expressed the importance for the IDC community to learn and understand the concepts that come with the pin. “Having an understanding of how all information ties together gives a tactical picture to operators,” said Williams. “It’s definitely a benefit.”[mappress]Naval Today Staff, January 15, 2013; Image: US Navy Training & Education View post tag: Navy View post tag: EIDWSlast_img read more

Hoon admits to private tuition

first_imgCabinet minister Geoff Hoon admitted last Saturday that he used a private tutoring company to help his teenage daughter’s Oxbridge application.The Transport Secretary and former Minister of Defence confirmed that he took his daughter to a presentation by Oxbridge Applications, a private company which charges up to £3000 for the coaching of an individual student. He would not comment on whether he had paid for tuition.Oxbridge Applications claims that applicants who receive its help are almost twice as likely to be offered a place at Oxford or Cambridge. Families who pay the £3000 charge give their child a 47% chance of admissions success, compared to the average of 26%, according to the company’s website.Mr Hoon attended an ‘Interview Preparation Day’ along with his daughter, held at a private school in the West Midlands.Hoon’s decision came to media attention when the father of another applicant noticed him at the meeting and wrote on the political website Guido Fawkes.“‘As I waited for my son in the foyer, I was surprised to see Geoff Hoon sitting a couple of seats away from me. Labour Minister gives offspring an unfair advantage in applying to top university? Surely not!” He wrote.The minister’s daughter attended a comprehensive school in Nottingham, and is currently on a gap year. Hoon himself was educated at Jesus College, Cambridge, after having attended an private school on a scholarship.Tories are now accusing the government of double standards following Gordon Brown’s proposed laws to increase social mobility and stop middle-class parents giving their children an ‘unfair advantage’ in education and the workplace.“Time and time again we see double standards from Ministers. They want to change the rules to make it tougher for everyone else while enjoying all the perks for themselves and their families,” said Tory spokesman Chris Grayling.New Labour has a history of MPs paying for their children’s education or tuition. In 2003 it was revealed that MP Diane Abbot had sent her son to a £10000-a-year private school, a decision she later described as ‘indefensible”, while in 2007 ex-education minister Ruth Kelly admitted enrolling her child in a £15000-a-year prep school.last_img read more

Cultivating female leadership in payments

10SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr While women have made great strides in achieving leadership roles in the financial services industry, there is much work yet to be done. Recent research from the Filene Research Institute found women comprise 25 percent of middle managers, 19 percent of senior leaders and only 2 percent of CEOs in the global financial services field. As a female leader, I feel a calling to help other women achieve similar opportunities.Recently, I had the honor of joining some of my fellow female leaders on a panel at the annual Card Forum & Expo. Our discussion highlighted career development for women and what can be done to encourage women to take on more career risk.There have been many studies confirming men are more inclined to take risks than women based on economic and evolutionary reasons. One study found gender differences were amplified even further under stress, concluding risk taking increases when men are under stress and decreases when women are under stress. There are actually gender differences in brain activity associated with evaluating risk and taking action. Knowing this, how can organizations use this to their advantage? Under stress, men and women working together would make smarter risk-taking decisions than either gender alone.Brain activity is not something we can change. What we can change is our actions. It is often the support and encouragement from others that can be the difference between women avoiding risk and tackling bigger and better career challenges. continue reading » read more

Jos Buttler prefers opening batting in T20 – but says it was his idea to move down the order in IPL | Cricket News

Buttler is ready for the challenge of facing South African pace aces Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje in England’s white-ball games against the Proteas Buttler will soon link up with England in South Africa for the T20I and ODI series against the Proteas, with the first of three T20Is taking place in Cape Town on November 27.The wicketkeeper-batsman will come up against two South African bowlers who starred for Delhi Capitals in the IPL – Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje.Rabada was the leading wicket-taker in the tournament with 30 scalps, while Nortje bowled the fastest ball in IPL history to Buttler when Delhi faced Rajasthan in October, hitting 97.1mph.Buttler added: “Rabada has the ability to take the ball away from the right-hander.

I felt like if we had had a bit more experience in that position then maybe we would have got over the line.“It was an offering, really, from myself to say ‘I haven’t had the runs I’d have liked at the top and I’m quite happy to move’. I thought for our team, it looked a better balance having a more experienced player in the middle.“I’d say [my form] was average, I guess – it pretty much mirrored the side. I had plenty of starts, felt I got in, but never really extended my innings.“I had a couple of decent knocks but with the expectations I put on myself, I didn’t get to where I wanted to be.” 3-1126653570no26.75134.761 – Advertisement – Speaking to Rob Key and Nasser Hussain on Sky Sports’ IPL Cricket Show, Buttler said: “I see it as bat wherever the team requires you to bat, and however the balance looks best in certain sides.“I do feel for myself – and I think 90 per cent of people who play T20 would say it as well – that the top of the order is the place to bat.“It’s where you face the most balls and where I think I can impact the game most. I think I have had more success at the top of the order and impacted more games in a positive way.” Jos Buttler says he prefers opening the batting in T20 cricket – but that it was his idea to move down the order for Rajasthan Royals during the 2020 IPL.England star Buttler began the tournament in an opening berth, a spot where he averages 40.62 in his IPL career with 10 fifties in 31 innings.However, the 30-year-old then slotted down into the middle, from where he averages 26.75 in 26 innings, after telling management that he felt his struggling side – who ended up finishing bottom of the IPL table on net run-rate – needed more experience later on in the innings.center_img 2:48 Buttler is ready for the challenge of facing South African pace aces Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje in England’s white-ball games against the Proteas Jos Buttler moved into the middle order for Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, which he says was his idea

House demands investigative audits on all state insurers

first_imgThe House of Representatives has called for the Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) to conduct investigative audits on state-owned insurers to assess their investment management.Members of House Commission VI, which oversees trade, industry and state-owned enterprises (SOEs), are especially eager for the BPK to conduct an investigative audit on state-owned pension insurance company PT Taspen and social insurer Asuransi Angkatan Bersenjata Republik Indonesia (Asabri). The move is meant to prevent the insurers from mismanaging their investments as they manage pension funds for civil servants, police, military and Defense Ministry employees.An audit differs from an investigation as the former assesses financial statements and forms independent opinions about them. Meanwhile,  an investigation is a comprehensive study of financial reports.  Topics : House Commission VI members are also calling for the Development Finance Comptroller (BPKP) to conduct a large-scale investigative audit on Taspen and Asabri, as well as other state-owned insurers, including PT Jasa Raharja, PT Asuransi Jasa Indonesia (Jasindo), PT Asuransi Kredit Indonesia (Askrindo) and PT Reasuransi Indonesia Utama.The commission’s member from Democratic Party of Struggle (PDI-P), Evita Nursanty, said the House suggested that audits focus solely on the insurer’s investments to assess their prudence in managing their funds. “They are managing the public’s funds so they need to be able to manage it in a prudent manner and free from the interests of any parties,” she said.In the meantime, Taspen president director ANS Kosasih said he was confident that the company would pass the investigative audit smoothly as it had applied independent investment decisions based on the company’s analysis.“We also asked the BPK to conduct an annual audit on our earnings report to assure that our business is run according to the code of conduct,” Kosasih said.center_img Commission VI member Mukhtarudin from the Golkar Party also said on Wednesday that the move aimed to prevent the insurers from repeating mismanagement conducted by ailing state-owned insurer PT Asuransi Jiwasraya, which led to negative equity and the inability to pay its policyholders’ claims of Rp 17 trillion.The Attorney General’s Office (AGO) last month instructed the Financial Services Authority (OJK) and the country’s bourse authorities to block 800 securities accounts as it investigated Jiwasraya’s investment mismanagement, having named five people suspects, including three former Jiwasraya executives and two business tycoons allegedly involved in the corruption case.Although Asabri could still pay for its claims, its investment mismanagement led the state firm and the government to suffer losses of around Rp 10 trillion.“The government has to intervene to prevent the same thing from happening again. So, I’m suggesting that Taspen and Asabri undergo investigative audits just like Jiwasraya,” Mukhtarudin said during a hearing with state-owned insurers in Jakarta.last_img read more

Citizens urged to care for elderly relatives

first_img Share 16 Views   no discussions Share LocalNews Citizens urged to care for elderly relatives by: – May 1, 2012 Sharing is caring!center_img Hon. Gloria ShillingfordOne government minister has underscored the importance of and issued a call to citizens to ensure that their elderly relatives are properly cared for and not left as the sole responsibility of the state.Community Development, Social Services and Gender Affairs Minister Gloria Shillingford told a national consultation organized by the Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) on Monday that families who have disabled elderly relatives should play a greater role in assisting them.The DAPD ended its public education campaign drive with a national consultation to garner support from the public in their quest to urge the government to ratify United Nations Convention on the rights of persons with disabilities.Shillingford made particular reference to Article 9 of that Convention which alludes to accessibility for people with disabilities by “enabling them to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life”.She appealed to citizens to treat their elderly relatives with the respect and dignity which they deserve. “I wish to single out the elderly among us who acquire disabilities associated with age and illness. I am therefore appealing to families to take care of their elderly; cherish them, love them and ensure that they enjoy their latter days in the comfort and dignity which they deserve”.According to Shillingford, although the government has initiated a program to ensure that its elderly citizens are cared for, family members should provide the love, care and attention which all humans require.“I urge them not to leave their elderly to the government’s Yes We Care Program only or the Dominica Infirmary, mindful that they deserve a better life”.She noted that the families should work in partnership with the government to ensure that their loved ones receive the best care possible.“Let me quickly say that the government’s Yes We Care Program is a program of partnership with the families all aimed at giving back to our elderly persons who in their productive years made a significant contribution to national development”.Dominica Vibes News Tweet Sharelast_img read more
