FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmail33ft/iStockBy KATIE KINDELAN and SARAH RUSSELL, ABC News(NEW YORK) — History will be made at this year’s Super Bowl, and it will be made by women. Six women will have on-field roles on Sunday when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers take on the Kansas City Chiefs in Tampa, Florida. In addition to NFL referee Sarah Thomas becoming the first woman to officiate a Super Bowl, this year’s game will also feature females in scouting assistant and assistant trainer roles. And two women will be coaching for the same team, a first in Super Bowl history. The Buccaneers are the only NFL team this season with two full-time coaches that are female — assistant defensive line coach Lori Locust and assistant strength and conditioning coach Maral Javadifar.“My dad and my mom were both in tears, and happy tears,” Javadifar told ABC News’ Kayna Whitworth of her parents’ reaction to her reaching the Super Bowl. “They were extremely ecstatic, and it was nice to share that opportunity.”Javadifar’s parents are Iranian immigrants who fled Iran after the revolution and came to the U.S. hoping for a brighter future. After a childhood in the U.S., Javadifar, known as MJ, became a college basketball player who went on to earn a doctorate in physical therapy along with a degree in molecular biology. Her expertise in body mechanics made her a perfect fit for the Buccaneers, with whom she is coaching her second season. “We’re not just happy to be here,” she said of the Super Bowl berth. “We’re continuing to prepare to win.”Locust, a mother of two sons, started playing semi-professional football at age 40 and then, sidelined with an injury, began coaching, working her way up from smaller football leagues to the NFL. When she coached at the semi-pro level, she began attending coaching symposiums where she was the only women in a room of 600 men. In some instances, the organizers even taped over the women’s bathroom door and made it a men’s room because they never had any women there. In 2018, Locust served as a defensive line coaching intern for the Baltimore Ravens during the team’s training camp. Locust — who has a nearly four-decade history with the Buccaneers’ head coach, Bruce Arians, who coached Locust’s ex-husband at Temple University — is also in her second season coaching for the team.“I think it was necessary,” Locust said of her long road to reaching the Super Bowl. “I think that it allows me to appreciate being here a lot more because I know what it took to get here.”When it comes to making history at the Super Bowl, when Tom Brady will go for his seventh title, both Locust and Javadifar said they plan to just focus on doing their jobs, like every other coach on the field. “I just don’t want to be a disruption. I want to be in addition, I want to be a value,” said Locust. “But I don’t want the exceptions. I don’t want the special treatment. Football has to be the focus.”But it will not go unnoticed that these two women are on the sidelines Sunday, especially among the NFL’s fans, 47% of which are women, according to the league. “To me, if there’s going to be any influence, it would be women that are my age saying not what if, but why not,” said Locust. “And really taking a second to find out what it is that they feel passionate about.”Javadifar said she hopes her presence at Sunday’s game is a reminder of “equal opportunity for all.” “I do truly hope that women being in the Super Bowl or being in professional sports ends up not being newsworthy anymore,” she said. “It goes back to having equal opportunity for all and that is our ultimate goal.”Backing up Javadifar and Locust off the field are several women in leadership positions for the Buccaneers, including the team’s co-owner Darcie Glazer Kassewitz. With Kassewitz’s leadership, the Buccaneers were the first NFL team to establish a scholarship program benefiting female high school football players. “There is a global shift that’s happening in sports and it’s amazing,” said Javadifar.Copyright © 2021, ABC Audio.

View post tag: middle east CMF: Aircraft and Ship Help Protect Middle East Sea Lanes Authorities In March the Combined Maritime Forces (CMF) and partner nations once more demonstrated the strength of working together to maintain secure and stable sea lanes in the Middle East waterways.In support of Combined Task Force 150 (CTF-150) maritime security and counter-terrorism operations, aircraft from New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States and the United States Coast Guard Cutter (USCG) Aquidneck recently joined forces to conduct a coordinated surveillance patrols plan in the northern portion of the CTF-150 Area of Operations.For this coordinated evolution, a Royal Navy Sea King helicopter and a Royal New Zealand Air Force P-3K2 Orion maritime patrol aircraft were patrolling the designated search area to take routine reconnaissance pictures of maritime activity. The information was then passed ashore to CTF-150 Battle Watch for analysis and, if required, to direct USCG Aquidneck to intercept any suspicious vessels.Image: CMF View post tag: ship Share this article View post tag: News by topic April 16, 2015 View post tag: Naval View post tag: CMF View post tag: Aircraft View post tag: Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today CMF: Aircraft and Ship Help Protect Middle East Sea Lanes View post tag: Sea Lanes
View post tag: F-35B View post tag: QE class View post tag: Royal Navy March 29, 2017 View post tag: BAe Systems Back to overview,Home naval-today BAE Systems introduces F35B simulator for Royal Navy carriers BAE Systems introduces F35B simulator for Royal Navy carriers A new flight simulator for the F-35B Lightning II aircraft is now ready to help prepare pilots to take the real aircraft on flight trials on the Royal Navy’s new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth next year.The simulator will test pilots’ skills to the limits as they practise landing on the deck of the new aircraft carrier in a range of sea and weather conditions provided by the simulator, British defense technology company BAE Systems announced on Wednesday.BAE Systems said the £2M simulator facility offers a 360-degree immersive experience for pilots to fly the jet to and from the UK carrier. It comprises a cockpit moved by an electronic motion platform and a full representation of the ship’s flying control tower (FLYCO), where a landing signal officer on board the carrier will control aviation operations.Over the coming months the simulator will be used by UK and US military test pilots who have experience of flying F-35s on US carriers.The pilots will practise ski jump short take-offs and vertical landings that use both the vertical thrust from the jet engine and aerodynamic lift from the wings, allowing the aircraft to take-off and land on the carrier with increased weapon and fuel loads compared to predecessor aircraft.Peter ‘Wizzer’ Wilson, BAE Systems’ test pilot for the short take-off and vertical landing variant on the F-35 programme, said the simulator trials will provide engineers with the data to begin flight trials on HMS Queen Elizabeth, the First of Class aircraft carrier in 2018.“The immersive experience is as near to the real thing as possible. The data will show us exactly what will happen when F-35 pilots fly to and from the Queen Elizabeth carriers,” Wilson said. “The trials we can run through the simulator are far more extensive than what we will do in the actual flight trials because we can run and re-run each trial until we have all the data we need. The simulator provides greater cost efficiency for the overall programme and is extremely important to the success of the first flight trials.”The new simulator replaces a previous version which was first built in the 1980s to develop technology for the Harrier jump-jet and the Hawk advanced jet trainer before being converted for F-35.

Timothy D. LaBenz, commanding officer of Sampson. “It’s an excellent test for our watchstanders to exercise their flexibility as warfighters and to interact with partner navies in a tactical environment. Sampson is dedicated to ensuring its ability to work together with our allies and deal with common concerns such as disaster relief and safety of sea lanes.”During the passing exercise, ships from both navies practiced ship handling procedures, communications drills and navigating in several close formations.“This was a unique opportunity to further our capabilities to operate with and learn from one another,” said Capt. Carlos Sardiello, Theodore Roosevelt’s commanding officer. “We are dedicated to ensuring our ability to work with our allies and deal with common concerns such as disaster relief and safety of sea lanes.”TRSG continues maritime security patrols, presence operations, and training with partners in the Indo-Pacific region. The TRCSG returned to the 7th Fleet area of operations after completing more than four months in the Arabian Gulf and US 5th Fleet area of operations supporting maritime security, theater security cooperation, and operations Inherent Resolve and Freedom’s Sentinel.Roosevelt left its homeport of San Diego, Calif., Oct. 6, for a regularly-scheduled deployment to the US 7th and 5th Fleet areas of operation.

Dear Editor:On April 18, 2018, Bruno Sammartino went to the great wrestling ring in the sky. Bruno Sammartino, “The Living Legend,” was a wrestling favorite throughout the local metropolitan area. His unique wrestling style – coupled with a sincere, humble charisma – has endeared him to many wrestling fans.Contrary to the silly, pretentious “soap opera story lines” – known as “kayfabe” – that are annoying prevalent throughout the “sport’s entertainment industry” of today, Bruno grappled during a time when wrestling was a “morality play” set to the “squared circle.” In these “plays” – these positive, life-affirming “lessons” that unfolded in the wrestling ring – no matter how bad it looked for the “hero,” the clean-wrestling “good guy” eventually triumphed over the cheating “bad guy” heel.I fondly remember Bruno wrestling at the Jersey City Armory on Montgomery Street. His shows always attracted a tremendous turn-out from a huge, widely-diverse fan base.Simply put: Everyone loved Bruno Sammartino.I, along with his legions of fans, hope that Bruno Sammartino wRESTles in peace. Respectfully yours,John Di Genio

According to Key Note’s latest Bread & Bakery Products report, household expenditure on bread is expected to see a steady rise from 2009 to 2013.In 2008, consumer expenditure grew by 6.2%, to £3.8bn, and with the population expected to hit 63 million by 2012, by definition more people will be buying bread.Currently, 99% of the population rate it as a staple item in their shopping basket and Key Note expects total household expenditure on bread and bakery products to rise by 5% this year. Thereafter, it expects the amount to rise at a slower rate, with total expenditure hitting the £4.59bn mark in 2013 – a 2.9% increase that year.Looking to future trends, Key Note predicts the potential impact of the Food Standards Agency’s proposed salt reduction targets. “Plant bakers are likely to be faced with the need to invest in new machinery to cope with the stickier doughs that will result from the salt reduction,” reads the report.In terms of other issues the industry may face, in addition to the rising skills gap, the weak pound is likely to result in more Eastern European bakers returning home. “The situation is likely to get worse in 2011, when Germany relaxes its immigration laws and is expected to attract more Polish workers.”The Key Note report, published in March this year, covers all breads and bakery products, such as rolls, and scones, but does not include cakes and pastries.l Key Note is offering readers of British Baker the chance to purchase the report, normally priced at £460, at a special discount price of £368 – 20% off.
