Arrow Levi-Ath-An



Around the world, the signs of the apocalypse -as outlined in the Book of Revelation-and that the unfolding events may spell disaster..
Quote:
The Dolphin class is actually two related sub-classes of diesel-electric submarine developed and constructed by Howaldtswerke-Deutsche Werft AG (HDW), Germany for the Israeli Navy..The Dolphin 2 class are the largest submarines to have been built in Germany since WW2.. The Dolphin class boats are the most expensive single vehicles in the Israel Defense Forces and are considered among the most sophisticated and capable conventionally powered submarines in the world..Each Dolphin-class submarine is capable of carrying a combined total of up to 16 torpedoes and SLCMs.. The cruise missiles have a range of at least 1,500 km (930 mi) and are widely believed to be equipped with a 200-kilogram (440 lb) nuclear warhead containing up to 6 kilograms (13 lb) of plutonium.. The latter, if true, would provide Israel with an offshore nuclear second strike capability..

The names Dolphin and Leviathan hail from the retired Israeli WWII-era submarines of the British T class; the third boat Tekuma (translation: Revival) refers in memory of Dakar, the third Israeli boat of the T class which was lost in 1968 with all Israeli crew in the Mediterranean Sea during delivery. The forthcoming boats Tanin and Rahav are names taken from retired Gal-class submarines, which were themselves named after even older Israeli S class boats..In 2006 Israel signed a contract with ThyssenKrupp to purchase two additional submarines from its HDW subsidiary..On July 6, the Government of Germany decided to finance an advance to start the construction, about €170 million, planned for delivery in 2012.. The two submarines cost, overall, around €1.3 billion, of up to one-third was subsidized by Germany..Yet in 2011, Israel ordered a sixth Dolphin-class submarine, for which it was reported to pay the unsubsidized cost of US$1 billion.. However, in July 2011, during a meeting between German Defense Minister Thomas de Maizière and Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and Defense minister Ehud Barak, an agreement was reached to subsidize €135 million of the US$500–700 million cost of the 6th submarine..Der Spiegel reported that Germany had threatened to pull out of the deal over new Israeli settlement expansion..

In response to rumours that Israeli submarines might be allowed to secretly base in Bahrain, an island kingdom in the Persian Gulf near Iran, the commander in chief of Bahrain's defense forces, Sheikh bin Ahmad Al-Khalifa stated to the Iranian ambassador Hossein Amir Abdollahian "We view the Zionist regime as our enemy and the enemy of all Muslim world.. Bahrain in no way allows Tel Aviv [Israeli military forces] to be present in its territorial waters."..According to two contradictory Sudanese media reports, in November or December 2011 two Israeli air raids against Gaza-bound weapon smugglers in Sudan were accompanied by Israeli submarine activity off the Sudanese coast..The Sudanese government claims no strikes took place..In February 2012, Ynet, the online version of the Israeli newspaper Yediot Achronot, reported that for security reasons applicants for the submarine service with dual citizenship or citizenship in addition to Israeli, which is common in Israel with a relatively high percentage of olim (immigrants), must officially renounce all other citizenships to be accepted into the training program...

Leviathan or The Matter, Forme and Power of a Common Wealth Ecclesiasticall and Civil—commonly referred to as Leviathan—is a book written by Thomas Hobbes (1588–1679) and published in 1651 (revised Latin edition 1668).. Its name derives from the biblical Leviathan ( Hebrew: לִוְיָתָן, Modern Livyatan Tiberian Liwyāṯān ; "twisted, coiled") is a sea monster referenced in the Tanakh, or the Old Testament..The word has become synonymous with any large sea monster or creature.. In literature (e.g., Herman Melville's Moby-Dick) it refers to great whales, and in Modern Hebrew, it simply means "whale".. It is described extensively in Job 41 and mentioned in Psalm 104:26 and Isaiah 27:1..

The Sanskrit adjective kuṇḍalin means "circular, annular".. It does occur as a noun for ("a snake" in the sense "coiled", as in "forming ringlets") in the 12th-century Rajatarangini chronicle (I.2). Kuṇḍa, a noun with the meaning "bowl, water-pot" is found as the name of a Naga in Mahabharata 1.4828. The 8th-century Tantrasadbhava Tantra uses the term kundalī ("ring, bracelet; coil (of a rope)")...

Arrow Galahad


Quote:
RFA Sir Galahad (L3005) was a Round Table class landing ship logistics (LSL) vessel belonging to the Royal Fleet Auxiliary of the United Kingdom. She was first managed for the British Army by the British-India Steam Navigation Company, before being transferred in 1970 to the RFA..The Sir Galahad was a 3,322-tonne LSL built by Stephens and launched in 1966.. She could carry 340 troops or, when necessary, 534 for short periods.. Cargo capacity could include 16 light tanks, 34 mixed vehicles, 122 tonnes of fuel and 31 tonnes of ammunition. Landing craft could be carried in place of lifeboats, but unloading was mainly handled by 3 onboard cranes..In November and December 1970 Sir Galahad was involved in Operation Burlap giving humanitarian assistance to East Pakistan after a cyclone caused extensive damage and flooding..

Sir Galahad was active during the Falklands War, sailing from HMNB Devonport on 6 April with 350 Royal Marines and entering San Carlos Water on 21 May.. On 24 May 1982 in San Carlos Water she was attacked by A-4 Skyhawks of the Argentine Air Force's IV Brigada Aérea and was hit by a 1000 pound bomb dropped by Lt. Luis Alberto "Tucu" Cervera's A-4, (which did not detonate) then strafed by Dagger fighter bombers. After removal of the unexploded bomb, she carried out supply runs to Teal Inlet along with RFA Sir Percivale..On the 8 June 1982 while preparing to unload soldiers from the Welsh Guards in Port Pleasant, off Fitzroy, together with RFA Sir Tristram, the Sir Galahad was attacked by three A-4 Skyhawks from Argentine Air Force's V Brigada Aérea, each loaded with three 500 lb retarding tail bombs..At approximately 14:00 local time RFA Sir Galahad was hit by 2 or 3 bombs and set alight.. A total of 48 soldiers and crewman were killed in the explosions and subsequent fire..During the attack on 8 June, the fires were out of control.. The main part of the evacuation of the injured and wounded was carried out by the ships Royal Marine Detachment...The same Royal Marines had also returned to the RFA Sir Galahad to assist the Royal Navy EOD team in defusing the 1000 lb bomb which crashed through the side of the ship without exploding on 24 May 1982.. All had returned on board as volunteers and assisted in physically carrying the unexploded bomb through to the rear Tank Deck ramp, where it was placed in an inflatable boat (filled with packets of cornflakes to act as padding!) and taken out into San Carlos water where the boat was punctured and sank...

On 21 June, the hulk was towed out to sea and sunk by HMS Onyx; it is now an official war grave, designated as a protected place under the Protection of Military Remains Act..Guardsman Simon Weston was among the survivors of the attack on Sir Galahad..He suffered 46% burns and his story has been widely reported in television and newspaper coverage..10 years after Sir Galahad was sunk, Weston was awarded the OBE. Other survivors include the intelligence consultant Crispin Black..He was previously an Associate Fellow at Chatham House..It takes its name from its premises, a Grade I listed 18th-century house in St. James's Square designed in part by Henry Flitcroft and occupied by 3 British prime ministers, including William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham..



Simon Weston was born in Caerphilly District Miners Hospital in Caerphilly, Wales..He joined the Welsh Guards in 1978 at the age of 16 at the insistence of his mother, after he "got into bother".. He served in Berlin, Northern Ireland, Kenya and later being deployed to the Falkland Islands..Weston endured years of reconstructive surgery, including over 70 major operations or surgical procedures.. Skin from his shoulders was used to make eyelids his trademark nose was grafted on in a later operation.. He suffered psychological trauma, drinking heavily and becoming suicidal, and admits his behaviour during this time was "terrible"..He credits his mother with helping him to overcome this.. In particular, her act of reuniting him with his old regiment, who refused to mollycoddle him (especially Glen White, who ran the Welsh Guards rugby side), forced him to "face up to the unavoidable and to be positive about everything including especially my future"...Weston was the inspiration for the title of the album Yes Sir, I Will by the anarcho-punk band Crass.. Upon his return from the Falklands, he met Charles, Prince of Wales,and the news media reported the following conversation between the two: "Get well soon," the Prince said. And the soldier replied "Yes sir, I will"..Weston has campaigned in support of troops and veterans and against politicians' alleged failure to support them adequately.. He has spoken out against defence budget cuts and British troops allegedly being supplied with inadequate equipment, and about the lack of support, health care and adequate compensation for veterans..

In February 2012 Weston was caught up in an angry exchange with actor Sean Penn, who said it was improper for Prince William to be deployed to the Falklands. Weston was reported as saying, "Sean Penn does not know what he is talking about and, frankly, he should shut up.. His (Penn's) views are irrelevant and it only serves to fuel the fire of the Argentinians and get them more pumped up"..In 2012, Weston decided to stand for the post of elected Police and Crime Commissioner for the South Wales Police. As part of the nomination process,he had to disclose the police caution he had received as a child and whether this caution disbarred him from standing became a matter of public debate.. Weston is married to Lucy, with whom he has 3 children: James, Stuart and Caitlin. They met in Liverpool when she was working for his charity, Weston Spirit.. They were engaged on 8 June 1989, exactly se7en years after the attack on the Sir Galahad, and married on 12 May 1990 and now live in Cardiff, Wales (United Kingdom)..Weston has met and become friends with First Lieutenant Carlos Cachon, the Argentine pilot who dropped the bomb which caused his injuries.. He was criticised for this move by families of those who fought in the Falklands War, which he simply dismissed, saying "I don't have a problem with other people criticising me for things I do, as long as people understand why I did them. Then I don't have a problem to walk away and say 'you're entitled to your opinions'"..

High Street, Bethesda, Gwynedd in the Day..Published by Astley Series ..

Bethesda is a census-designated place in southern Montgomery County, Maryland, just northwest of the United States capital of Washington, D.C. It takes its name from a local church, the Bethesda Meeting House (1820, rebuilt 1849), which in turn took its name from Jerusalem's Pool of Bethesda.. (In Aramaic, ܒܝܬ ܚܣܕܐ beth ḥesda means "House of Mercy" and in Hebrew, בית חסד "beit ḥesed" means "House of Kindness".) The National Institutes of Health main campus and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center are in Bethesda, as are a number of corporate and government headquarters..Bethesda is one of the most affluent and highly educated communities in the United States. In 2014 it placed first in Forbes list of America's most educated small towns and first on CNNMoney.com's list of top-earning American towns in 2012.. In April 2009, Forbes ranked Bethesda second on its list of "America's Most Livable Cities." In October 2009, based on education, income, health, and fitness, Total Beauty ranked Bethesda first on its list of the U.S.'s "Top 10 Hottest-Guy Cities".. is featured in the 1993 movie Dave, the 2003 movie Shattered Glass, and the 2012 movie The Bourne Legacy...Bethesda is the home of Congressional Country Club, which is recognized as one of the most prestigious country clubs in the world,also home of the exclusive Burning Tree Club..The Pool of Bethesda is a pool of water in the Muslim Quarter of Jerusalem, on the path of the Beth Zeta Valley.. The 5th chapter of the Gospel of John describes such a pool in Jerusalem, near the Sheep Gate, which is surrounded by 5 covered colonnades.. It is associated with healing..The biblical narrative continues by describing a Shabbat visit to the site by Jesus, during which he heals a man who has been bedridden for many years, and could not make his own way into the pool..The French constructed the Church of Saint Anne, at the south east corner of the site, leaving the ancient ruins untouched..Then the Lord said to Isaiah, “Go out, you and your son Shear-Jashub, to meet Ahaz at the end of the aqueduct of the Upper Pool, on the road to the Washerman's Field ..The Bethesda system is a system for reporting cervical or vaginal cytologic diagnoses, used for reporting Pap smear results..Bethesda Hospital, founded in 1899, is the oldest hospital in Yogyakarta, Indonesia..Bethesda Academy (previously known as Bethesda Home for Boys) is a boys' school and former orphanage located in unincorporated Chatham County, Georgia, in the United States, near Savannah..The main commercial corridor that runs through Bethesda is Maryland Route 355..


Bethesda Avenue at night...

Bethesda is a town on the River Ogwen and the A5 road on the edge of Snowdonia, in Gwynedd, north-west Wales, colloquially called Pesda by the locals..It all started when the 'Bethesda Chapel' or (Capel Bethesda) was created in the 1800s and that chapel was created where Arafa Don on the Bethesda High street (A5) and a lot of buildings and civilization grew around it..Most of the town is to the east and north east of the A5 road, with housing packed onto the hillside in irregular rows...In its heyday, the population of Bethesda peaked at 10,000, but it is currently around 4,327 people (2001 census).. Current opportunities for employment in the town are limited: there are a few manufacturing businesses; most businesses are in the low-paid service sector and hospitality industry.. For employment with higher earning potential, residents tend to commute to towns along the North Wales coast.. Bangor is the most popular destination, but some will commute daily as far as Cheshire.. Because of the lack of degree-based employment opportunities, many young people move out of the area to places such as Cardiff and Manchester as soon as they are qualified..The architecture and layout of the town is largely utilitarian.. Most of the buildings are constructed of stone with slate roofs.. Some are constructed wholly of slate blocks, although such buildings tend to suffer from damp and structural slippage because the very flat and smooth surfaces of slate do not bind well to mortar..According to the UK Census 2001, 77.0% of the residents are Welsh-speaking, higher than the average for both Gwynedd and Wales as a whole..The name Rachub is thought to have come from Yr Achub, which would roughly translates as The Saving or Safe place..Bethesda is also mentioned in the 5th episode of the 3rd season of Showtime's Homeland...

Chubut (Provincia del Chubut, Welsh: Talaith Chubut) is a province in southern Argentina, situated between the 42nd parallel south (the border with Río Negro Province), the 46th parallel south (bordering Santa Cruz Province), the Andes range to the west, and the Atlantic ocean to the east. The province's name derives from the Tehuelche word chupat, meaning "transparent," their description of the Chubut River..The largest city is Comodoro Rivadavia in the south of the province; it has 180,000 inhabitants, . The administrative capital is Rawson (40,000).. Other important cities are Puerto Madryn, Trelew, Esquel and Sarmiento. Gaiman is a cultural and demographic centre of the region known as "Y Wladfa" in which Welsh-Argentines are concentrated.. Of the 25,000 Welsh speakers in Argentina, 5,000 live in the Chubut region, particularly in the original Welsh settlements of Trelew and Trevelin...

Before the Spaniards arrived in the Americas, nomadic indigenous peoples had inhabited the Patagonia region for thousands of years.. They lived as hunter-gatherers and covered territory in seasonal cycles as they followed game..In the 17th and 18th centuries, Spanish missionaries came to the area, and founded the San José Fort on Península Valdés. The indigenous people later destroyed it..In 1865, Welsh people came to Chubut in the Mimosa ship and settled in the Chubut Valley area. The region was disputed between Chile and Argentina until 1881.. Chile renounced its claim in order to prevent Argentina from entering into the War of the Pacific, in which it was already fighting against Peru and Bolivia..Chubut's economy, for a long time one of the most prosperous in Argentina, is one of the country's least diversified.. Nearly one-quarter of its 2006 output, estimated at US$4.7 billion, is generated by mining and petroleum..Chubut stretches from the Atlantic to the Andes: the coast is marked by high cliffs and sandy beaches.. The centre consists of several plateaus and depressions.. The Andes are not very high in Chubut, with most peaks between 1,500 and 2,000 metres (4,900 and 6,600 ft)..Altitudes over 1,000 m have constant winter snow cover, and over 2,000 m, the snow remains until midsummer.. Higher peaks are heavily glaciated..The province is divided into 15 departments..Other faiths are active in Chubut, principally amongst the Welsh chapels as well as Lutheran and Muslim places of worship in Comodoro..The Ruta Nacional 25 crosses Chubut from East to West, connecting Trelew and Esquel, but half of it has not yet been paved..Route 22, north from Perito Moreno (Santa Cruz province) 125 km...

The first vessel was a 7,069-ton armoured cruiser completed in 1899..After almost 31 years of service, she was sunk during the Falklands War (Guerra de Malvinas or Guerra del Atlántico Sur) by the Royal Navy submarine Conqueror with the loss of 323 lives.. Losses from General Belgrano totalled just over half of Argentine deaths in the war..You're telling me that the entire population of Great Britain went and elected a deranged psychotic to the highest office of the land?..In 55, then Brigade General Hernán Pujato founded the first Belgrano Base (Belgrano I), which remained for years as Argentina's southernmost settlement..

To be quite honest Nigel; the pieces only started to fit together last week..The stamp out evil pixies campaign!. The public have to be educated on this one Nigel.. Lacrobat is the world's most wanted terrorist; he is charged with over 40 acts of terrorism including 3 assasinations and the receipe for airline food..Holy chopped meat!. princess Wendy went witling with a razor yesterday and had a ball.. Yes sirree another young soldier waved goodbye to his loved ones as her royal highness went crazy with a cutthroat during a routine pr-op shave on British flagship HMS Lion..The pincer movement, or double envelopment, is a military maneuver in which forces simultaneously attack both flanks (sides) of an enemy formation.. The name comes from visualizing the action as the split attacking forces "pinching" the enemy..The Sun '​s headline "Gotcha" is probably the most notable headline in a British newspaper about the incident.. Kelvin MacKenzie, editor of the popular tabloid, is reported to have used an impromptu exclamation by The Sun '​s Features Editor, Wendy Henry, as the inspiration for the headline..Desmond! Put your fucking tiara on straight!..During the repairs of the Argentine Navy icebreaker ARA Almirante Irízar which is normally used to supply the base, the Argentine Air Force took over the task with airdrops by KC-130 Hercules aircraft in a non-stop flight from Ushuaia in Tierra del Fuego..The distance between insanity and genius is measured only by success..You provide the pictures, I'll provide the war"..I've just taken it one step further..

Highlander - MacLeod receives The Prize ...
Quote:
Óláfr Guðrøðarson , commonly known in English as Olaf the Black,was a mid 13th century sea-king who ruled the Isle of Man (Mann) and parts of the Hebrides. Óláfr was the son of Guðrøðr Óláfsson, King of the Isles, King of Dublin, and his wife Finnguala, granddaughter of Muirchertach Mac Lochlainn, High King of Ireland, King of Cenél nEógain..At one point Óláfr, who had been given possession of Lewis, complained to Rögnvaldr that his lands were not enough. Rögnvaldr's response was seize Óláfr and send him to the King of Scots, where he was imprisoned for almost se7en years.. Upon his release, Óláfr undertook a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, after which the half-brothers were reconciled and Rögnvaldr had Óláfr married to Lauon, the sister of his own wife. ..In 1230 Óláfr fled to Norway to seek military assistance against Alan and members of Clann Somairle. The Norwegian king's response was to send a fleet into the Isles under the command of Óspakr Ögmundsson, a member of Clann Somairle.. Óspakr was slain early in the campaign, after which Óláfr took control of the fleet and secured himself on Mann...The Manx Sword of State, a ceremonial sword used at the annual Tynwald Day sittings at St John's, Isle of Man, and whenever the Tynwald sits at the Legislative Chambers in Douglas, Isle of Man, is popularly said to have belonged to Óláfr.. The sword, which has a 29 in (74 cm) steel blade and 9 in (23 cm) inch hardwood hilt, is sometimes said to have been brought back from Spain when Óláfr returned from his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela; however, recent analysis of the sword has determined that it dates no earlier than the 15th century, and that the blade dates only to the 17th century..Several Scottish clans that were historically seated on Lewis have traditionally been ascribed a descent from Óláfr.. The MacLeods claim a descent from Leod (Old Norse Ljótr), who is popularly said to have been a son of Óláfr..Other Lewis clans have been linked with Óláfr in various traditions, such as the Morrisons of Ness and their adversaries the Macaulays of Uig..Yeah the Druid ancestors the Morrisons were a minor Scottish clan founded by a bastard son of the King of Norway..Witches are the protectors of the seasons..And when crossed, destroyers...



Clan MacLeod is a Highland Scottish clan associated with the Isle of Skye. There are two main branches of the clan: the Macleods of Harris and Dunvegan, whose chief is Macleod of Macleod, are known in Gaelic as Sìol Tormoid ("seed of Tormod"); the Clan MacLeod of Lewis, whose chief is Macleod of The Lewes, are known in Gaelic as Sìol Torcaill ("seed of Torcall").. Both branches claim descent from Leòd, who lived in the 13th century.The Clan MacLeod of Lewis claims its descent from Leod, who according to MacLeod tradition was a younger son of Olaf the Black, King of Mann (r.1229–1237).. However, articles have been published in the Clan MacLeod magazine which suggest an alternative genealogy for Leod, one in which he was not son of Olaf, but a 3rd cousin (some removed) from Magnus the last King of Mann.. In these alternative genealogies, using the genealogy of Christina MacLeod, great granddaughter of Leod, who married Hector Reaganach (McLean/McLaine) these articles suggest that the relationship to the Kings of Mann was through a female line, that of Helga of the beautiful hair..Leod, according to tradition, died around 1280 and was buried on the holy island of Iona, where six successive chiefs of the clan found a last resting-place after him.. There are several notable heirlooms belonging to the chiefs of the clan and held at their seat of Dunvegan Castle.. Possibly the most well known is the Fairy Flag which has numerous traditions attributed its origins and supposed magical powers. It was said to have had the power, when unfurled, to save the clan on 3 separate occasions.. Others have attempted to associate the flag with the Crusades or even a raven banner, which was said to have been used by various Viking leaders in the British Isles..The flag is currently held in Dunvegan Castle, along with other notable heirlooms such as the Dunvegan Cup and Sir Rory Mor's Horn...

Arrow Tuna Sub


US Marine Sgt Wallace...

Marine Samuel Wallace B Division ( "Coalfish") born 24.9.1913 Dublin son of Samuel and Ellen.. Wallace and Ewart-Executed in Paris 12th December 1942 - Plymouth Naval Memorial,Devon,England Panel 102 Column 2-Dear Heather, I trust it won’t be necessary to have this sent to you but since I don’t know the outcome of this little adventure, I thought I’d leave this note behind..Yours for ever, Bob, chin up Sweetheart...
Quote:
At 7.17 pm on December 7, 1942, His Majesty’s Submarine Tuna surfaced off the coast of Occupied France near the mouth of the River Gironde.. The Bay of Biscay was kind that night, the sea oily calm under starlight..The tranquility of the scene emphasised the sub’s vulnerability.. A flash of searchlight or gunfire and she would have to dive immediately.. Major Herbert “Blondie” Hasler of the Royal Marines agreed that, yes, it was time to go.. The deck was soon alive with commandos and sailors preparing to launch six canoes stored below.. Cockles, they were called, two-man collapsible canvas boats, hopefully more robust than they looked...

The Gironde boasts a fierce tidal race, a wall of water sweeping periodically down the estuary.. Shortly after the start of the operation, it claimed the first casualty, the canoe Coalfish, crewed by Sgt Samuel Wallace and Marine Robert Ewart.. After capsizing, they swam ashore and gave themselves up to a German unit.. Conger was next to capsize when a second tidal race hit the frail little flotilla se7en hours into the operation.. Her crew, Cpl George Sheard and Marine David Moffatt, were left clinging on to the sterns of Catfish, crewed by Hasler and Sparks, and Cuttlefish.. Hasler spent a precious hour pulling the 2 men towards the shore, but the mission took precedence...

Wallace Leslie William Sargent (February 15, 1935 – October 29, 2012) was a British-born American astronomer..He was often known as Wal Sargent.. Although he became a U.S. citizen, he was born in Elsham, England..He received his Ph.D. in 1959 from Manchester University before coming to work at California Institute of Technology (Caltech) where he worked ever after, excepting an absence of 4 years during which he claims to have had to go back to England to find himself a wife, Anneila Sargent..Sargent was known for his studies of quasar absorption lines.. He was the Ira S. Bowen Professor of Astronomy at Caltech. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1981..The policy-ineffectiveness proposition (PIP) is a new classical theory proposed in 75 by Thomas J. Sargent and Neil Wallace based upon the theory of rational expectations, which posits that monetary policy cannot systematically manage the levels of output and employment in the economy..The post-war displacement of Keynesianism was a series of events which from mostly unobserved beginnings in the late 1940s, had by the early 1980s led to the replacement of Keynesian economics as the leading theoretical influence on economic life in the developed world. Similarly, the allied discipline known as Development economics was largely displaced as the guiding influence on economic policies adopted by developing nations...

A Marine from western Pennsylvania has been killed in Afghanistan..Carol Wallace says her son, 25-year-old Sgt.

Both were assigned to the 2nd Combat Engineer Battalion, 2nd Marine Division, II Marine Expeditionary Force, Camp Lejeune, N.C..Wallace says her son was a combat engineer whose duties included removing and exploding bombs, conducting searches, working on vehicles and construction projects..Wallace leaves behind a wife, Erica, from Jacksonville, N.C., a stepson, Landon, 5, and a daughter, Brooklyn, 2..He was 2002 graduate of Sharpsville High School...

At 7 am the first of the mines exploded on the Alabama, the last went off at 1 pm.. The damage inflicted on the ships was quite severe, The Dresden sank with holes in her outer plating and propeller shaft.. The Portland was badly holed and damaged by fire.. The Tannenfels was also badly damaged causing her to list badly.. The Alabama, Portland and Tannenfels were patched by divers and made it to dry dock for repairs, there were two other ships attacked but the damage to them was never discovered..The two remaining crews now headed down river to scuttle their canoes and make their escape overland to Spain and back to Britain...

Lightbulb 5 Man Team


Missing Marine ...
Quote:
Alan Addis (born 14 July 1961) was a British serviceman who disappeared in mysterious circumstances August 1980 while serving with the Royal Marines in the Falkland Islands.. It was initially suggested that Marine Addis had drowned in an accident, but it is now widely believed that he was unlawfully killed.. Police investigations have resulted in arrests, but no one has ever been charged in connection with his disappearance and his body has never been found..Addis was a member of Naval Party 8901, a small Royal Marines unit which in 1980 was assigned to the Falklands. The unit's role was to maintain a visible British military presence on the islands and to provide military and civil defence training for the local population...

At the time of his disappearance, Addis was part of a 5 man team that had journeyed to the remote settlement of North Arm in Lafonia on East Falkland, approximately 90 miles (140 km) from the Falklands capital Stanley.. On the evening of 8 August, Addis and the other marines attended a function in the village hall that doubled as a social club. The marines left the event at different times and Addis's colleagues reported last seeing him at around 1.30 am.. The following morning the rest of the team began the journey back to Stanley on the steamer the MV Forrest. It was not until sometime after they had set sail that it was discovered that Addis was missing..There remains a degree of confusion over the precise sequence of events and uncertainty over when and how word of the disappearance reached the North Arm community (some of whom appeared to be aware of it in advance of the official announcement) has served to compound the mystery...

In November 1981 Anne Addis travelled to the Falklands by military transport to make enquiries of her own. She became convinced that foul play was involved and asked the UK Ministry of Defence to initiate a new investigation led by the Special Investigations Branch (SIB) of the Royal Military Police.. She argued that the SIB were better equipped – in terms of personnel, training and experience – to undertake such an enquiry, than the islands' own police force which was then tiny and consisted of one full-time and a handful of part-time constables.. In response, an SIB officer was dispatched to the Falklands, though his eventual report was confidential and Mrs. Addis was not given sight of it.. The situation was further complicated in April the following year when Argentine forces invaded and occupied the islands..

In the years following the war, Mrs Addis continued to pressure the British and the Falkland Islands authorities for a new enquiry and she remained in contact with a number of Falklanders.. In 1993 rumours reached her of an overheard conversation in a Falklands pub where an islander allegedly boasted of their involvement in the murder.. In September of that year, in an operation involving Chinook helicopters from the newly established Royal Air Force base at RAF Mount Pleasant, officers from Devon and Cornwall Police and the Royal Falkland Islands Police arrested four Falklands men..The men were later released without charge..In 1997, an attempt was made to locate Marine Addis's body by a specialist UK team.. The group included Professor John Hunter a forensic archaeologist at the University of Birmingham and head of the highly regarded Forensic Search and Advisory group (set up to advise and assist police in locating human remains). The team also included experts with ground penetrating radar and a specially trained sniffer dog from Lancashire Police led by Sergeant Mick Swindells..Despite searching over 54 locations the team found no trace of Marine Addis..In December 2010, a Metropolitan Police team visited the Falklands to conduct a further search.. This followed a tip off from a former Falklands resident who had contacted Anne Addis with information on where Alan's body was buried. Though no body was found, it was reported that the search had turned up new clues and that a follow-up visit to the islands was planned.. It was further reported that the head of the Royal Falkland Islands Police had taken the unusual step of offering police protection to anyone prepared to come forward with information...


The site of Addis Ababa was the chosen by Empress Taytu Betul and the city was founded in 1886 by Emperor Menelik II.. Menelik, as initially a King of the Shewa province, had found Mount Entoto a useful base for military operations in the south of his realm..Ethiopia has often been called the original home of mankind due to various humanoid fossil discoveries like the Australopithecine Lucy..The highest record temperature was 32 °C (90 °F) August 27, 1996, while the lowest record temperature was 0 °C (32 °F) on November 23, 1999..Addis Housewares is a British company manufacturing household products..The symptoms of Addison's disease develop gradually and may become established before they are recognized..The frequency rate of Addison's disease in the human population is sometimes estimated at roughly one in 100,000..United States president John F. Kennedy (1917-1963), probably the single most famous case of Addison's disease..Osama bin Laden may have had Addison's..The condition has been diagnosed in all breeds of dogs...

In particle physics, the eightfold way is used to classify sub-atomic particles (alluding to the Noble Eightfold Path ).. The theory was independently proposed by Israeli physicist Yuval Ne'eman and led to the subsequent development of the quark model-the quarks and antiquarks which give rise to the quantum numbers of the hadrons, the most stable of which are protons and neutrons, the components of atomic nuclei..



Almost all of the mass of an atom is located in the nucleus, with a very small contribution from the electron cloud..An atomic orbital is a mathematical function that describes the wave-like behavior of either one electron or a pair of electrons in an atom..Every atom is composed of a nucleus and one or more electrons that orbit the nucleus..The ancient Greeks noticed that amber attracted small objects when rubbed with fur.. Along with lightning, this phenomenon is one of humanity's earliest recorded experiences with electricity...

Lightbulb Navel


Belly Dance 1001 Nights..
Quote:
The umbilicus is used to visually separate the abdomen into quadrants.. The navel is the center of the circle enclosing the spread-eagle figure in Leonardo da Vinci's Vitruvian Man drawing.. The navel is rarely the focus in contemporary art and literature..While the West was relatively resistant to midriff-baring clothing until the 1980s, it has long been a fashion with Indian women.. The Japanese have long had a special regard for the navel.. During the early Jomon period in northern Japan, three small balls indicating the breasts and navel were pasted onto flat clay objects to represent the female body.. The navel was exaggerated in size, informed by the belief that the navel symbolizes the center of where life begins...

The parathyroid glands are small endocrine glands in the neck of humans and other tetrapods that produce parathyroid hormone.. Humans usually have 4 parathyroid glands variably located on the back of the thyroid gland, although considerable variation exists.. Parathyroid hormone and calcitonin (one of the hormones made by the thyroid gland) have key roles in regulating the amount of calcium in the blood and within the bones..Each gland is a yellowish-brown flat ovoid that resembles a lentil seed..Each parathyroid vein drains into the superior and, middle and inferior thyroid veins.. The superior and middle thyroid veins drain into the jugular vein, and the inferior thyroid vein drains into the brachiocephalic vein..Parathyroid development is regulated by a number of genes, including those coding for several transcription factors..The parathyroid glands were first discovered in the Indian Rhinoceros by Richard Owen in 1852..Fish do not possess parathyroid glands, however several species have been found to express parathyroid hormone..It has been suggested that the tetrapod glands may have been evolutionarily derived from these fish gills...

Dogū (土偶)-(meaning "clay figures") are small humanoid and animal figurines made during the late Jōmon period (14,000–400 BC) of prehistoric Japan..Most of the Dogū have been found in eastern Japan and it is rare to find one in western Japan..The very long-approximately 14,000 years-Jōmon period is conventionally divided into a number of phases: Incipient, Initial, Early, Middle, Late and Final, with the phases getting progressively shorter..Genetic mapping studies have shown a pattern of genetic expansion from the area of the Sea of Japan towards the rest of eastern Asia..These studies also suggest that the Jōmon demographic expansion may have reached America along a path following the Pacific coast..

Royal Marines RAtion Demo...
Quote:
The invasion of South Georgia (Operación Georgias), also known as the Battle of Grytviken, took place on 3 April 1982, when Argentine naval forces seized control of the east coast of South Georgia after overpowering a small group of Royal Marines at Grytviken..Eventually, the Argentine captain ordered the lowering of the flag, but failed to report to Grytviken.. The BAS commander sent a message to the Governor of the Falkland Islands, Rex Hunt (South Georgia being run as a dependency of the Falklands). After consulting London, Hunt was instructed to dispatch HMS Endurance to South Georgia with a detachment of 22 Royal Marines..Pattern-wise, one lands, then 2, making groups of 3's joined magnetically Is that possible?...


A Scottish whaler in workshop, Leith harbour, South Georgia, mid-40s...

In Spitsbergen, in the first half of the seventeenth century, the processing of whales was primarily done ashore..In 1912 Leith Harbour was the site of the second introduction of reindeer to South Georgia, an attempt that failed when the entire herd was killed by an avalanche in 1918..There is a gun emplacement on the hill behind the station, and another at Hansen Point with the original 4" gun still in position.. Leith Harbour boasted a hospital, a library, a cinema, and a narrow gauge railway.. The centre of Leith Harbour is occupied by the so-called Portuguese graveyard and there is a second, larger cemetery to the rear of the station..Since 2010 access to the station has been prohibited due to the dangers posed by asbestos and collapsing buildings..The crafting of the first Imperial egg is attributed to Erik's workshop..The two halves of the outer shell fit together in a bayonet-style fitting which opens when twisted to revel the surprise..You're chasin' somethin' about the size of a D8 cat with teeth...

Raymond Paul Mears (born 7 February 1964) is an English woodsman, instructor, businessman, author and TV presenter. His TV appearances cover bushcraft and survival techniques..Mears attended Downside Preparatory School in Purley and then Reigate Grammar School, where he was a member of the naval cadre of the combined cadet force.. His ambition was to join the Royal Marines, but his hopes of doing so were dashed when he failed the eyesight test.. After taking A-levels, Mears briefly worked in an office in the City of London..The name "Ray Mears" is also a trademark used to protect his business operations, particularly those involving the goods and services he offers through his company Woodlore LTD..The Prairie Potawatomi use Symphyotrichum novae-angliae as a fumigating reviver..Symphyotrichum novae-angliae (L.) G L Nesom. (formerly Aster novae-angliae L.), commonly known as the New England Aster or Michaelmas Daisy, is a flowering herbaceous perennial plant in the Asteraceae family...


Rain dance, Kansas...

In 1983, Mears founded Woodlore, a company that offers Bushcraft-related courses and paraphernalia.. It became so successful that it soon led to the trademarking of the name "Ray Mears".. Mears first appeared on TV in 1994 presenting the BBC series Tracks and then, in 1997, Ray Mears' World of Survival. In 2003, he presented the BBC documentary Ray Mears' Real Heroes of Telemark about the Norwegian heavy water sabotage mission during World War II.. While filming a documentary in Wyoming in 2005, Mears was involved in a serious accident. The helicopter in which he and his camera crew were travelling struck the ground during a steep low level turn, and broke apart, rolling to a stop.. The fuel tank was ruptured in the accident and escaping fuel covered Mears and the crew.. No fire occurred, and Mears was able to escape the wreckage uninjured and assist in the rescue and administer first aid to one of the crew who was badly hurt..On 29 May 2008, Mears appeared on The Graham Norton Show where he attempted unsuccessfully to light a fire using a bow drill..Mears was a guest on BBC Radio 4's Desert Island Discs in January 2014..Mears met his partner, Rachel, in 1992 when she attended one of his 5-day survival courses.. The couple lived in East Sussex with her two adult children and married in 2005, after Rachel was diagnosed with breast cancer. Rachel died in 2006, aged 50, and her ashes are scattered in Ashdown Forest near their home..

The Potawatomi Trail of Death was the forced removal of 859 members of the Potawatomi nation from Indiana to reservation lands in what is now eastern Kansas in 1838.. Under an armed escort of volunteer militia, the march began at Twin Lakes, Indiana, (Myers Lake and Cook Lake, near Plymouth, Indiana) on September 4, 1838, and ended on November 4, 1838, along the western bank of the Osage River, near present-day Osawatomie, Kansas.. During the journey of approximately 660 miles (1,060 km) over 61 days, more than 40 persons died, most of them children.. It marked the single largest Indian removal in Indiana history..Theresa Marsh is located near Theresa, Wisconsin, in northern Washington County and eastern Dodge County.. The marsh is the starting point for the Rock River, a tributary of the Mississippi River, and the marsh is an important stopping point for migratory birds..Dikes were constructed, along with water control features operated to provide waterfowl habitat.. Hunting is allowed in season....

Ashdown Forest's origins lie as a medieval hunting forest created soon after the Norman conquest of England.. By 1283 the forest was fenced in by a 23 miles (37 km) pale enclosing an area of some 20 square miles (5,200 ha)..The forest continued to be used by the monarchy and nobility for hunting into Tudor times, including notably Henry VIII, who had a hunting lodge at Bolebroke Castle, Hartfield and who courted Anne Boleyn at nearby Hever Castle..The ecological importance of Ashdown Forest's heathlands is reflected by its designation as a Site of Special Scientific Interest, as a Special Protection Area for birds, and as a Special Area of Conservation for its heathland habitats..Ashdown Forest is shaped, roughly speaking, like an inverted triangle, some 7 miles (11 km) from east to west and the same distance from north to south..Ashdown Forest does not seem to have existed as a distinct entity before the Norman Conquest of 1066 AD, nor is it mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086..Ashdown Forest is famous as the setting for the Winnie-the-Pooh stories, written by A. A. Milne..Brian Jones of the Rolling Stones also lived at Cotchford Farm, and died there in 1969..Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, author of the Sherlock Holmes stories, lived at Crowborough, on the eastern edge of the forest.. Locations around the forest found their way into his stories..These include Colditz, the 2002 version of The Four Feathers, Under Suspicion, Flyboys and HBO/BBC's mini-series Band of Brothers..In Spanish, "tonto" translates as "moron" or "fool".. So in the Spanish dubbed version, the character is called "Toro," meaning "Bull"...Further, in Portuguese, Italian and Spanish, the word tonto means "fool" or "dumb," so the name was changed in the dubbed versions. ..

The Rum Ration..
Quote:
The rum ration was originally beer with a daily ration of one gallon.. This official allowance continued till after the Napoleonic Wars.. When beer was not available, as it would often spoil easily, it could be substituted by a pint of wine or half a pint of spirits depending on what was locally available.. In later years, the political influence of the West Indian planters led to rum being given the preference over arrack and other spirits...


Master and Commander CLIP..

The Battle of Ashdown, in Berkshire (possibly the part now in Oxfordshire), took place on 8 January 871.. Alfred the Great, then a prince of only 21, led the army of his brother, King Ethelred of Wessex, in a victorious battle against the invading Danes..Accounts of the battle are based to a large extent on Asser's Life of Alfred, however there is some dispute about whether this is an authentic account...

Default Man rape in the services is all but legal

I think they call it "Taking one for the boys" and forces in Afganistan are told to turn a blind eye to boys being raped.

This is the price we now have to pay for allowing "Gays" into the services, it's just like you would exspect if you allowed young lads into the girls changing rooms, bound to be some touching.

Remeber that before letting you oldest lads sign up to join any of the services that only fight to protect corporations and banks these days.

It's not call of duty, thats for sure.

That does appear to bee the case, sadly..If you notice no chinese fought or died in afghanistan, iraq etc, but I can bet china now trades with those countries ..

Thats the trouble with joining up at a young age, naivety plays a great part..

China is connected to Afghanistan by a narrow corridor with a border length of only 97km.. This “Wakhan Corridor” has been closed to regular border traffic for almost 100 years.. Despite the limited land connection between the two, Afghanistan is attractive to China for several reasons: China is interested in Afghanistan’s natural resources..

Arrow The Great Game


Simplified Chinese 瓦罕走廊
Quote:
The Wakhan Corridor (alternatively Vakhan Corridor, or Wakhan) is the narrow strip of territory in northeastern Afghanistan that extends to China and separates Tajikistan from Pakistan.. The corridor, wedged between the Pamirs to the north and the Karakoram range to the south, is about 350 km (220 mi) long and 13–65 kilometres (8.1–40.4 mi) wide...

The corridor was a political creation of The Great Game...
I wonder how many bankers, judges and politicains etc have fought over there recently ??? I wonder if Paddy Knows ?

Dancing boy performing in what is now Uzbekistan..
Quote:
Cushions and rugs were fetched, on which we gratefully reclined, great carpets were spread over the court, the natives puffed at their narghiles, politely offering them to us, and the famous Khivan bachehs made their entrance. Backstage, an orchestra mainly composed of twin flutes, kettle drums, and half a dozen man-sized silver trumpets took up its stand. Opposite us a door left slightly ajar led to the harem quarters. We caught a glimpse of flashing eyes as the inmates thronged to the door to have a good look at us and watch the performance...
