Belgian Navy patrol vessel BNS Pollux (P902) took over from there.Escort along the BE EEZ of a RFS Task Group; 1 ALTAY Class, 1 ROPUCHA Class and 1VISHNAYA Class.

Brent Jackson, commanding officer of Chung-Hoon.“It’s critical in an effort to curb the ongoing shipments of illicit weapons and narcotics. I am grateful that Chung-Hoon was able to play a small part in an ongoing effort to deter and limit these illicit shipments of contraband.”The vessel was determined to be stateless following a flag verification boarding, conducted in accordance with customary international law. The vessel and its crew were allowed to depart once the narcotics were seized.Chung-Hoon is one of the many ships currently conducting maritime security operations in the US 5th Fleet. Maritime security operations as conducted by the US Navy entail routine patrols to determine pattern of life in the maritime as well as enhance mariner-to-mariner relations. The relationships built as a result allow the US Navy to disrupt the transport of illicit cargo that often funds terrorism and unlawful activities, and also reassures law-abiding mariners in the region.Chung-Hoon is deployed to the US 5th Fleet area of operations in support of naval operations to ensure maritime stability and security in the Central Region, connecting the Mediterranean and the Pacific through the western Indian Ocean and three strategic choke points.

first_imgPrincess Caroline will grow three to four feet tall. Princess Molly reaches only 18 inches tall. Princess Caroline is a lot more vigorous, but both can grow in some shade. For best results, though, give them a lot of sun, he said.Because it is smaller, Princess Molly will do better in the landscape if it doesn’t have a lot of tall competition. It will also thrive in a large pot.The grasses are fairly maintenance free, he said. A small amount of fertilizer at the beginning of the season is OK, but don’t fertilize too much for a desirable ornamental grass. They need water to get established. But once they are growing, they are very hearty plants for the southern climate. Princess Caroline and Princess Molly were developed by Wayne Hanna, a plant breeder with the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences in Tifton, Ga. The well known turfgrass breeder named the varieties after his granddaughters. The grasses are patented and licensed through the UGA Research Foundation.“One of the biggest benefits about them is they don’t produce any seed, they don’t produce any pollen,” Hanna said. “So, they stay pretty vegetative, and the benefit of that is you only get what you plant.”It also means the plants won’t invade into other areas of the landscape, he said. The University of Georgia recently released two drought-tolerant, disease-resistant ornamental grasses that can grow from a seedling to a full plant in one month. And, they don’t produce seed or pollen. Princess Molly and Princess Caroline will be available this spring at nurseries and other retail outlets across the country. Currently, four growers in Alabama and five in Georgia are propagating the plants. From Atlanta south, both grasses will overwinter and come back each spring. North of Atlanta and depending on the winter, they should be treated like annuals that die due to the cold.last_img read more

first_imgBy Julieta Pelcastre/Diálogo May 03, 2019 About 100 Russian service members arrived at Simón Bolívar International Airport in Maiquetía, Venezuela, March 23, with 35 tons of unknown cargo in two Russian Air Force aircraft. The military deployment could create a worrisome scenario, prolong the severe political, social, and economic crisis in the country, and endanger regional stability. Meanwhile, Nicolás Maduro uses humanitarian assistance as a domination strategy. “The Russian aircraft that landed on March 23 [2019] with Russian officers and tons of equipment will remain in the country for as long as necessary,” Yván Gil, Venezuelan vice minister for Europe, told the press. “New military missions might arrive, according to the agreements signed between both countries [in 2011].” William Dávila, a Venezuelan congressman and member of the National Assembly’s Foreign Policy Committee, told the press that the Russian aircraft’s surprise deployment violates the Venezuelan Constitution, as the Assembly hadn’t authorized it. The Kremlin responded that bilateral military-technical cooperation agreements both countries signed in 2001 regulate the Russian presence. “In our opinion, one of the things the Russians are doing there is to help the authorities with the S-300 systems that have suffered from the blackouts,” Elliott Abrams, U.S. Department of State special representative for Venezuela, told the press. The Venezuelan government received the S-300, an air defense system, in 2013. “With the help of Moscow, Maduro’s dictatorship built an air shield in the Atlantic area and near Caracas, where the National Bolivarian Armed Force has eight brigades with S-300VM missiles, capable of intercepting all kinds of targets,” Daniel Pou, associate researcher at the Latin American Social Sciences Institute in the Dominican Republic, told Diálogo. “The missiles’ update seeks to instill fear among Venezuelans, perpetuate the country’s economic crisis, and endanger regional stability.” The missiles were stored and their components had never been refurbished. “Maduro needs the Russians to dig them out and put them in operation,” Pou said. “Russian officers are working on the electronic wireless communications system of these long-range weapons, because they are outdated.” From bad to worse “Moscow is clearly saying that they will go all in. The Russian presence with aircraft and troops shows that they will do whatever it takes to stay,” Luis Alberto Gabriel Somoza, professor of security and defense at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina, told Diálogo. “Venezuela might be the setting for the resurgence of a new [armed] conflict.” The worsening situation of the Venezuelan population, with people already living below the poverty line, is among the consequences of growing Russian militarization. “The Venezuelan crisis is a tragedy that might get worse due to the latest events,” Somoza said. Double talk Despite the collapse of food and health infrastructures in Venezuela, Maduro rejects humanitarian assistance from countries of the free world. “The humanitarian assistance is a show to humiliate us,” Maduro told the press on February 8. Days later, however, he said, “Russian humanitarian assistance arrives on Wednesday [February 20].” “Maduro insists on finding fictitious rivals. He promotes this view to rally all Venezuelans together against an alleged international threat,” Javier Oliva Posadas, armed forces specialist and professor at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, told Diálogo. Ana Rosario Contreras, president of the Capital District College of Nursing in Caracas, told the press that Russian help never made it to hospitals. It was not until April 16, after months of negotiations, that the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies succeeded in bringing a shipment of humanitarian aid with medications, which started to be distributed among the country’s health centers. This is the result of the upsurge of 21st century socialism in some Latin American countries, leading populist regimes to take advantage of democratic instruments to modify their constitutions and hold on to power. “Countries of the region should adopt a clearer, more categorical stance regarding their level of tolerance for the presence of transcontinental countries [Russia and China] that set up in our continent because many leftist governments helped them, creating an unstable scenario,” Somoza said. Possible scenarios In March 2018, Dr. R. Evans Ellis, research professor of Latin American Studies at the U.S. Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, said in his article “The Collapse of Venezuela and Its Impact on the Region”, published in Military Review, that Venezuela had three possible scenarios, “all negative,” if Maduro remains in power: (1) resistance burnout and consolidation of the criminal state, (2) escalating violence resolved by imposition of a pseudodemocratic compromise regime, (3) prolonged criminality, repression, and insurgency. In this last scenario, Russia and China take a wait and see position. According to the article, every scenario implies an increase in the already dramatic exodus of refugees to neighboring countries and the rest of the region, as well as in weapons imports, and a greater impact on the political and criminal landscape. “As Russian weapons, aircraft, technology, and even more military personnel arrive in Caracas, tension will escalate, and scenarios or forecasts will become more ominous,” Oliva said. “Latin America is on its way to a new kind of cold war,” Somoza concluded.last_img read more

first_imgOne of the organizers of the election, Benny Tai, told reporters that the results of the poll had been leaked ahead of an official announcement. But he said there had been no personal data breach of the voters.Last Friday, Hong Kong police raided the office of the independent pollster helping with the election, and officers copied some information from computers there.Hong Kong’s Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau said in a statement late on Monday that it had received public complaints that the weekend poll may have “jeopardized the integrity of the electoral process”.It added it was now conducting an investigation and might later refer the case to law enforcement agencies.The preliminary results showed several incumbent democratic lawmakers like Ted Hui and Eddie Chu taking the most votes in some districts.But a group of aspiring young democrats, or “localists”, also performed strongly, reflecting a potential changing of the guard as the democrats gear up for the September poll.”It’s just the beginning,” one candidate, Sunny Cheung, a runner-up in one district putting him on the democratic ticket for September, told Reuters.”I will try to persuade more people to support us,” he added, saying localists like himself were gaining more mainstream support.Topics : The city’s opposition camp is aiming to seize majority control in the 70-seat legislature for the first time from pro-Beijing rivals by riding a wave of anti-China sentiment stirred by the law, which critics say has gravely undermined Hong Kong’s freedoms.The city returned to Chinese rule in 1997 with a guarantee of wide-ranging autonomy.The new law punishes secession, subversion, terrorism and collusion with foreign forces with up to life in prison and allows mainland Chinese security agents to operate officially in Hong Kong for the first time.Lam told reporters that if the democrats’ aim to gain a legislative majority was to obstruct government policies, “then it may fall into the category of subverting the state power”. She didn’t elaborate. Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam said on Monday that an unofficial city-wide election conducted by the pro-democracy camp over the weekend might have violated new national security laws by “subverting state power”.The weekend election drew more than 600,000 votes, in what democrats described as a symbolic protest vote against tough new laws imposed by Beijing on the freewheeling former British colony.The vote at around 250 polling stations was held to decide the strongest pro-democracy candidates to contest key Legislative Council elections in September.last_img read more
