The two days of combined operations was also testament to the adaptability and willingness of coalition forces to share their knowledge.“The exercise highlighted the welcoming nature of our partners and the focus we all have on the mission at hand irrespective of cultural differences and beliefs.“For personnel not physically visiting the respective ships the benefits of operating in close proximity to each other fostered the interaction of systems, procedures and the opportunity to conduct serials in line of sight.HMAS Toowoomba is presently deployed in support of Operation SLIPPER in the Middle East Area of Operations (MEAO) assigned to Combined Maritime Forces and will continue its patrol until mid October after which it will return to Australia.[mappress]Source: navy, August 30, 2011; August 30, 2011 View post tag: Drill View post tag: PNS Alamgir View post tag: members View post tag: HMAS Toowoomba View post tag: Duties Training & Education View post tag: swap Share this article View post tag: middle east Members of HMAS Toowoomba and PNS Alamgir Swap Duties During Gulf of Oman Drill
Marcus King has been on a tear recently. The up-and-coming blues artist has been touring all over the country and in Europe as he continues to impress with his soulful vocals and genre-bending guitar playing. King has made tons of fans during his rise through the music world, but he received perhaps the ultimate compliment when Warren Haynes agreed to produce his new album.Haynes recently posted about King on Facebook, saying that, “Marcus is the first player I’ve heard since Derek Trucks to play with the maturity of a musician well beyond his age. He’s very much influenced by the blues, but also by jazz, rock, soul music, and any timeless genres of music. You can hear the influences, but it all comes through him in his own unique way. He has one of those voices that instantly draws you in, and his guitar playing is an extension of his voice and vice versa.”Extremely kind words from an icon like Warren, who is known for helping bring up-and-coming bands to the forefront. As King explains in the attached video, “I didn’t have many friends growing up, so I’d sit at home and play guitar for most of the day. I was in this really dark place, really hurting for a while. I don’t want people to feel alone, because I felt really alone – not having anywhere else to turn, except to music. If people can relate to that, then I’ve done my job.”19-Year-Old Marcus King Talks Family, Friends And The Future Of His Music [Interview]Check out the video that Haynes posted along with his nice words, which is a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the new album, with Haynes, King and his band in the studio. The Marcus King Band’s new record is now available for pre-order here.
As urged by NAFCU, CFPB on Friday proposed a rule change to codify last year’s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act revisions on private notice requirements. The GLBA revisions were signed into law by President Barack Obama in December as part of a transportation authorization bill.“We welcome this CFPB proposal to conform its privacy notice rule with last year’s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act revisions, long sought by NAFCU,” said NAFCU Director of Regulatory Affairs Alexander Monterrubio. “We appreciated CFPB’s assurance in January that it would follow the spirit of this statutory change, but today’s proposal is a step in the right direction toward streamlining and providing credit unions clarity on their privacy notification obligations.“NAFCU will continue to evaluate the proposal and work closely with the bureau during the rulemaking process,” he continued. “We also continue to urge the bureau to more effectively exercise its authority under Section 1022 of the Dodd-Frank Act to exempt credit unions from its rules.” continue reading » 3SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr

8 July 2014Banyana Banyana began their preparations for the forthcoming African Women’s Championship on a winning note, beating Namibia 2-1 in an international friendly at Sam Nujoma Stadium in Windhoek on the weekend.Goals by Leandra Smeda and Disebo Mametja were enough to seal victory for South Africa’s national women’s football team, while Thomalina Adams pulled one back for the home side.Coach Pauw’s comments“The ladies know what is expected of them now,” Banyana Banyana coach Vera Pauw commented after the game.“The hard work that we have been putting in is starting to show. It was a tough game, Namibia has improved a lot. They are physical, but we managed to contain them.”ChangesPauw made two changes to the team that had beaten Botswana 4-0 last month, with Noko Matlou returned to the starting eleven and playing alongside captain Janine Van Wyk in defence, while Disebo Mametja started her first match under Pauw on the right flank.The Namibians were the first to threaten in the contest and managed the first shot at goal in the seventh minute, but the ball passed narrowly wide of goalkeeper Tokozile Mndaweni’s goals.Opening goalIt took Banyana Banyana almost half-an-hour to find their feet. Smeda then found the back of the net in the 29th minute after the South Africans executed a well- coordinated set piece from outside the box.Refiloe Jane had an opportunity to extend the South African lead just before the halftime break. She made good contact with the ball inside the box, but her effort went wide, off the goal post.2-0 leadA quarter-of-an-hour into the second half, Mametja doubled Banyana Banyana’s with an easy tap-in.Namibia pulled one back with 15 minutes remaining after a defensive error from Banyana Banyana, but when the final whistle sounded the visitors had taken the honours 2-1.Namibia will host the African Women’s Championships from the 11 to 25 October this year.Zimbabwe friendlyBanyana Banyana next face Zimbabwe on Friday in another pre-African Women’s Championship friendly on Friday at the Rufaro Stadium in Harare.“We need to play more matches before the African Women’s Championships as this will give us an opportunity to keep practicing what we have learnt,” Banyana coach Pauw said in a statement on Monday.“The ladies know what is expected of them. From here on we have to master what we have learnt. We need to get the team physically ready for an intense high level of play.”The draw for the African Women’s Championships draw will be held on 19 July in Windhoek. The other nations that have qualified for the finals are Namibia, Algeria, Cameroon, the Ivory Coast, Ghana, Nigeria and Zambia.SAinfo reporter
Calling the ₹10,000-crore relief package announced by Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis for farmers hit by unseasonal rain “grossly inadequate”, Shiv Sena chief Uddhav Thackeray on Sunday demanded that the government provide ₹25,000 per hectare as compensation to farmers without any conditions attached.The Sena chief, who toured parts of Aurangabad district to assess crop damage, parried questions on the tussle between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Sena over government formation, merely saying the people would come to know soon enough if his party would be in power.“The damage to crops is so extensive that the government must immediately give recompense of at least ₹25,000- ₹50,000 per hectare for these farmers… nothing will happen in the ₹10,000 crore package announced,” Mr. Thackeray said, stating that the farmers stared at an existential crisis because of this ‘wet famine.’At a time of fraught relations with ally BJP, the Sena president’s criticism of the relief package chimed in with that of the Nationalist Congress Party’s (NCP), which dismissed the assistance as “a joke.” When asked if his party would form the new government to ensure help to distressed farmers, Mr. Thackeray refrained from giving a direct answer and merely said it was “inappropriate” to speak of government formation at a time when farmers were suffering. Dig at FadnavisThe Sena chief, however, took a swipe at Mr. Fadnavis, remarking: “Despite the monsoon withdrawing, it seems to be saying mi punha yein (I shall return)… now, this has created fear among people.”Mr. Thackeray was referring to Mr. Fadnavis’s oft-repeated assertion of mi punha yein (‘I shall return’) during the Assembly election campaign that he would easily return as chief minister for a second term.Mr. Thackeray also took jibes at the Narendra Modi-led government at the Centre, saying it was New Delhi’s “duty” to help Maharashtra’s farmers in their hour of crisis. “The State has given its wholehearted blessing to the ruling party at the Centre by voting it back to power in the general election. When the Prime Minister had come to Ausa in Latur ahead of the Lok Sabha polls, I had told him the people will give you their blessings if you assure relief during drought. I now expect the Centre to extricate Maharashtra’s farmers from this crisis,” he said.The Sena chief had toured drought-hit parts of the State before a particularly acrimonious run-up to his party sealing the alliance with the BJP before the general election.Warning to banksHe exhorted crop insurance companies do away with cumbersome documentation and not create impediments while giving insurance aid to farmers. “I also urge banks to behave in a humane manner in this grave hour facing farmers,” he said, warning that Shiv Sainiks would take to task any financial institution that created obstacles in disbursing credit to farmers. “There is a need to give succour to farmers and not conduct surveys via helicopters. The farmers’ subsistence crops have been destroyed in one night at many places,” Mr. Thackeray said, remarking that the despair had reached such a point that farmers were contemplating extreme steps.Appealing to farmers not to commit suicide, the Shiv Sena chief said his party stood firmly behind them and would leave no stone unturned to provide them just assistance.
