General Dynamics Bath Iron Works successfully launched the Navy’s first Zumwalt-class destroyer Oct. 28 at their Bath, Maine, shipyard. The future USS Zumwalt (DDG 1000) will be the lead ship of the Navy’s newest destroyer class, designed for littoral operations and land attack.The ship began its translation from Bath Iron Works’ land-level construction facility to a floating dry dock on Friday. Once loaded into the dry dock, the dock was flooded and the ship was removed from its specially designed cradle. By late Monday, the dock had been flooded and the ship was floated off and tied to a pier on the Kennebec River.Construction began on DDG 1000 in February 2009, and the Navy and its industry partners have worked to mature the ship’s design and ready their industrial facilities to build this advanced surface combatant. Zumwalt is currently more than 87 percent complete, and the shipbuilder will continue remaining construction work on the hull prior to planned delivery late next year.Because of the complexity of the first-of-class ship, the Navy will perform a two-phase delivery process. Bath Iron Works will deliver the ship itself to the Navy in late 2014. Upon delivery, the Navy will then conduct combat systems activation, tests and trials, to include multiple underway periods. The ship is expected to reach its initial operating capability in 2016.The ship, the first of three Zumwalt-class destroyers, will provide independent forward presence and deterrence, support special operations forces and operate as part of joint and combined expeditionary forces. The Navy has incorporated many new technologies into the ship’s unique tumblehome hull, including an all-electric integrated power system and an Advanced Gun System, designed to fire rocket-powered, precision projectiles 63-nautical miles.The shape of the superstructure and the arrangement of its antennas significantly reduce the ship’s radar cross section, making the ship less visible to enemy radar at sea. The design also allows for optimal manning with a standard crew size of 130 and an aviation detachment of 28 sailors thereby decreasing lifecycle operations and support costs.The lead ship and class are named in honor of former Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Elmo R. “Bud” Zumwalt Jr., who served as chief of naval operations from 1970-1974.[mappress]US Navy, October 30, 2013

Ameerodien Noordien, 19, a volunteer for the Gift of the Givers, died in gang crossfire on Friday October 5. Crime ravaged communities are hoping that police minister Bheki Cele’s plan to deploy the new Anti-Gang Unit (AGU) will finally allow them to walk their streets in safety.However, residents say they need to be informed about how the minister’s plan will work. Mr Cele was reported last week as saying that the AGU would hit the streets of the Cape Flats in the next few days, following calls for peace and police intervention by fed-up residents. His remarks were made at the home of Ameerodien Noordien, 19, a volunteer for the Gift of the Givers, who died in gang crossfire on Friday October 5 (“Volunteer dies in crossfire”, Athlone News, October 10). Mr Cele also announced the return of the Bambanani programme but said that he would not allow any political interference.A 21-year-old man allegedly involved in Ameerodien’s shooting handed himself over to Philippi police station on Wednesday October 10 and was due to make an appearance at the Wynberg Magistrate’s Court on Monday on a charge of murder. According to police, Ameerodien went to a shop in Surwood Walk where he and three others were shot. He died after being shot multiple times in the chest and head while the three other men were wounded. Mr Cele said the AGU was set to hit the streets by November 1 and would include 95 police officers, including detectives, the National Intelligence Unit and the Tactical Response Team.“The unit will officially be launched at the end of the month, but in the next few days you will begin to see them on the streets,” he said.“Who are we not to respond to the call when the communities have made that call? All I ask from you is to work with those special teams and share information with them.”In the latest national crime statistics, Bishop Lavis police station ranked 21 in the top 30 police stations with the highest murder statistics.The murder rate in the Bishop Lavis precinct, of which Bonteheuwel is part, stood at a staggering 98 while the attempted murder rate stood at 156. In Manenberg 61 murders and 125 attempted murders were reported in the year while in the Philippi police precinct, which includes Hanover Park, 87 murders were committed and 88 sexual offences. Manenberg polices spokesman Captain Ian Bennett said the AGU would be a resource to existing police by investigating organised crime. He said the unit would collect more evidence in order to build stronger cases and will also re-look at existing case’s evidence. “They will be a help resource us, we will be on the ground and they will use higher forces to help us. When people are arrested they will conduct specialised investigations,” he said. However, Hanover Park Community Police Forum’s (CPF) chairperson, Ebrahim Abrahams, said the CPF had not been informed of Mr Cele’s plan and that the communities needed to be consulted. “I hope that this is not just a talk shop. We haven’t even been addressed about how it will work and they will be in our streets and communities. We are supposed to be their ears and eyes but there is no consultation. There is about 50 shots going off everyday but they have time to wait until November, who are they fooling?”Mr Abrahams also said that anything that could help get rid of gangsterism was welcomed but needed to be executed properly.Manenberg Safety Forum chairperson, Roegchanda Pascoe, said deploying the AGU to the Cape Flats was much needed and welcomed but she hoped it would be a permanent solution and that the unit wouldn’t be removed immediately after gang violence died down. “We have seen this happening before where it just flares up again. Obviously gangs’ drug business will stop while the police are here but once they leave it will start again. The question is, are they doing this because of elections next year? It will make a difference but it needs to be a permanent thing,” she said. Ms Pascoe said the AGU needed to be effective in what they planned to achieve. “It must be run properly. We can have all the manpower but if they are not effective in what they do it will be useless. We are not here to play, there are people’s lives at risk. We need confirmation that it will stay here and not be taken away,” she said.Bishop Lavis Community Police Forum (CPF) chairperson, Graham Lindhorst, said the CPF and residents were quite happy with the decision. He said while it will never be enough combat gangsterism on the entire Cape Flats, it is a good start. “It is definitely something that is needed. People are getting away with killing our children in the streets,” he said.
The Solicitors Regulation Authority will give firms time to acquaint themselves with new transparency rules – but will be proactive about those still refusing to comply. Last week saw the advent of new requirements for all firms working in certain types of consumer law, including publishing their prices, details of those doing the work and how long legal services are expected to take. Failure to comply with the regulations is to be treated as a disciplinary matter and could result in sanctions against defaulting firms. But the SRA is keen to stress it wants to help firms rather than immediately clamp down on those who have yet to amend their websites. Chief executive Paul Philip, speaking during the SRA compliance conference in Birmingham yesterday, said: ‘We will send people lots of reminders and then be forced to take regulatory action for the tiny amount of people that don’t do it. It is not about giving people a hard time.’ Philip said the regulator will not just rely on reports coming in of non-compliance, but instead will perform a ‘thematic review’ to check for itself whether firms are publishing the right information. Solicitors speaking at the conference expressed doubts about the merits of the new rules and how useful they may be for clients in practice – particularly if the legal service turns out to be more expensive than they were led to believe. A panelist on one of the break-out sessions, Wanda Goldwag, chair of the Office of Legal Complaints, said solicitors should regard the new requirements as an opportunity rather than with scepticism. ‘Many products are just as complex as telling someone how handling their conveyancing will be,’ she added. ‘We need to tell people there is a basic price. In their mind [clients] are thinking “this could be £10,000 or £500”. That gap is just too big. ‘I think it will help [solicitors] because you are now competing with other people who are leading on price – for example these things you call conveyancing factories.’The new rules apply to conveyancing (residential), probate (uncontested), motoring offences (summary offences), immigration (excluding asylum), employment tribunals (unfair or wrongful dismissal), debt recovery and licensing applications. Price information, the SRA says, must be presented in a ‘clear and easy to understand format’, providing a total cost or, if this is not possible, an average or range of costs.
Justice Edward Zacca Edward Zacca was named Acting Governor GeneralOn this day in history March 31, 1991, Edward Zacca was named the Acting Governor General of Jamaica. He served in this position from March 31st to August 1, 1991, until the position was filled by Howard Cooke. Zacca was also the Chief Justice of the Jamaican Supreme Court from 1985 to 1996. Under the constitution of Jamaica, the Chief Justice of Jamaica can serve as acting Governor-General when that office is vacant. In 2015, former Chief Justice Zacca was knighted by The Queen in her 2015 Birthday Honors list. He was knighted as the Knight Commander of the Order of St. Michael and St. George.
“We listened to local stakeholders who wanted us to explore community transfer or options for social housing and other uses. Unfortunately, the technical challenges of the site meant that is was not suitable but it was important that we took the time to look at these options.“The reasons behind our decision to sell Auchincruive have not changed since 2017. The site costs SRUC around £685,000 a year to maintain and, due to challenges around the site, it would require a significant investment to bring it up to modern standards. As a result, it is clear that the status quo of this site is not financially feasible for SRUC and its maintenance is stifling fresh investment in teaching and research in the South and West of Scotland.“We have taken expert legal advice on the terms of the bequest from the Hannah Family and all assets from the sale will be reinvested in educational activities in the South and West of Scotland. This proposal is therefore entirely in accordance with the historic origins of the original bequest of the estate from the Hannah family in the 1920s.” AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInScotland’s Rural College (SRUC) is to remarket the east side of its Auchincruive site in Ayrshire. Last year, SRUC announced a £35 million business case for the South and West of Scotland and a new campus at Barony, near Dumfries.The decision to sell Auchincruive is part of the long-term strategy to base research and teaching at Barony. SRUC is pursuing partnerships with local colleges and other stakeholders to deliver rural skills training in Ayrshire.The John F Niven building occupied by SAC Consulting, the consultancy arm of the college, and the Disease Surveillance Centre at Auchincruive are not for sale.The site was previously offered for sale in 2017. The Auchincruive site was taken off the market last year to take a fresh look at options for the site.SRUC’s explored community ownership or transferring the land for public use with South Ayrshire Council and other organisations. Due to technical challenges of the site, highlighted in an independent report, neither of the options were ultimately feasible.Professor Wayne Powell, Principal and Chief Executive of SRUC, said: “SRUC is committed to supporting our partners in the Ayrshire area and we are currently developing our full plans for our South and West Faculty. A priority will be supporting our learning and research in Ayrshire, alongside our new campus at Barony as well as the continued presence of our SAC Consulting offices in Ayrshire.
