first_img Terma Selected for Mid-Life Upgrade of Danish Navy’s OPVs View post tag: Naval View post tag: upgrade View post tag: Defense View post tag: radar View post tag: Navy Equipment & technology View post tag: SELECTED The Danish Defence Acquisition and Logistics Organization (DALO) has chosen Terma’s solutions for its Mid-Life Upgrade of the Danish Navy’s Offshore Patrol Vessels (OPVs). During the next four years, the THETIS-class OPVs will be updated with the SCANTER 4100 radar and the C-Flex command & Control System.Terma will deliver four SCANTER 4100 radar systems, with an option for an additional four systems. The additional systems are aimed at training at the Danish Navy’s schools, as well as extra systems for the KNUD RASMUSSEN-class OPVs, which the Danish government in 2012 decided to expand with an additional ship. Furthermore, Terma is to support the deliveries with spare parts and technical preparedness.Thomas Blom, Vice President, Naval, is very pleased with contract: “We are proud that the Royal Danish Navy once again has selected Terma as their supplier of solutions for the Danish vessels. This is an invaluable sign of trust, and a stamp of quality for our products”.The first radar must be operational in mid-2014, and the remaining radars towards the end of 2014. Among others, Terma has already supplied the SCANTER 4100 radar to Royal Navy’s HMS Clyde and the Brazilian Navy’s Amazonas-class.The C-Flex Command & Control system will replace the ship’s existing C3 solution. C-Flex will support the full mission cycle in maritime domain security and surveillance by integrating the shipboard sensor and weapon systems to generate a real-time confident situational awareness display that can be shared in full over datalink.Today, the Terma C-Flex is the preferred solution across the Royal Danish Navy’s platforms and supplied in customized versions to a number of navies throughout the world, including the Romanian Navy, the Royal Thai Navy, and other ASEAN countries.The Danish Navy’s four THETIS-class OPVs have been operating successfully in the Northern Atlantic seas surrounding Greenland and The Faroe Islands for 20 years.

Seven Life Lessons Learned as Dell Interns

first_imgThe following is a guest post from Amulya V. Dhupad and Ashwini Madivalara.It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the creditEvery year Dell opens its doors to interns around the world. In 2017, they had just shy of 2,000 interns join their offices and our 2018 class of interns is still growing. As interns, we come to Dell EMC from campus eager to learn and willing to grow in our field of choice. It is Dell’s responsibility to live up to these expectations while also conveying the culture of the company in an engaging, fun way.Recently our class of interns in India gathered from Bengaluru, Chennai and Hyderabad for an event dubbed “Intern Mélange,” a FUN off-site for us to enjoy our peers while experiencing the five culture code pillars of Dell: Customers, Winning Together, Innovation, Results and Integrity.The day began with the value of ‘Customer’ and proceeded to work its way through all five culture code pillars. For ‘Customer,’ we were made to innovate ideas that helped reduce risk while delivering a product. The end of the activity put a light on the ‘Innovation’ culture of Dell. The second activity revolved around our culture code, ‘Winning Together.’ During the activity, teams of three had to help each other reach the desired goal. The journey towards the goal taught us how to help, when to help and the positive results in helping each other.The day flew by as we collaborated, laughed and continued to play games such as pace the parcel which brought some of us back to a feeling of childhood. Dell EMC has a way of teaching things via day to day experiences and now that our internship is coming to an end, we realize Dell’s culture is embedded in us. We headed home that day with a bag full of memories to cherish and learnings to build ourselves as better people than we are today. Drizzling rain added colors to our thoughts on our way back home as well as selfies, songs and some napping.As we drove back, many of the interns summed up their key learnings and realized how they could impact not only their careers, but also their approach to their everyday life. These learnings included:Learn to appreciate, help, support and encourage team membersPlan before you actExtend your helping hand; you lose nothingDon’t be a victim, or be responsible for others to be the victimBe a good observer; eyes can be a good listenerThere is no harm in helping others at same level, but it is always easier when you are a level upShowing gratitude costs nothingAt the end of the event, the following quote echoed in our minds: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.”Today, life in IT sector means ‘continuous learning.’ It is a key to survive. The more you are up-to-date the better you perform, many companies invest in the growth of their employees to ensure that they constantly deliver valuable products and services. This investment is noticeable, appreciable and applicable. As a Dell EMC employee, I feel lucky to work in a company that invests in its employees and ensures that we stand by the company culture.Thank you Dell for investing in our growth.Amulya V. Dhupad is an intern at Dell EMC Bengaluru, India, in the quality engineer team at RSA – a security division of Dell EMC. She feels fortunate to begin her career working at Dell EMC and is looking forward for more opportunities to learn and grow along with Dell EMC.Ashwini Ashok Madivalara (left) is a programming enthusiast currently interning with RSA – a security division of Dell EMC in Bengaluru, India.

Sting & Jimmy Fallon Talk The Last Ship; Cast Performs

first_img Show Closed This production ended its run on Jan. 24, 2015 Related Shows The Last Ship View Comments Rock star-turned Broadway composer Sting visited The Tonight Show on October 16 to discuss the five-year journey of getting his show The Last Ship to the Great White Way. Jimmy Fallon let his inner theater freak shine through as he gushed over the powerhouse team involved, including director Joe Mantello and choreographer Steven Hoggett. Sting says he “felt in safe hands” with them, as they were confident enough to tell a rock legend what would and wouldn’t work on stage. Then, after Fallon and Sting sang a snippet of “Soliloquy” from Carousel (because why not), Rachel Tucker and the cast of The Last Ship performed the number “If You Ever See Me Talking to a Sailor.” Grab a pint (it’s five o’clock somewhere) and check out the clips below!last_img read more

Paraguayan Senate Gives New President Greater Authority to Deploy Troops

first_imgBy Dialogo September 13, 2013 Horacio Cartes, Paraguay newly inaugurated president, entered office Aug. 15 promising to weaken a leftist rebel group known as the Paraguayan Peoples Army [Ejército del Pueblo Paraguayo, or EPP]. One week into his mandate, Cartes began fulfilling that promise. On Aug. 22, Paraguay’s Senate modified National Defense Law 1337, granting the president wider powers to deploy troops in a public security role in case of “threats or acts of violence against the legally constituted authorities.” The law effectively gives Cartes leeway “to deal with any form of internal and external aggression that endangers the sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity of the country.” That includes using the armed forces in a policing role without the need to declare a state of emergency. Prior to that, congressional approval had been required for such a deployment. The Senate approved the amendment with 29 votes in favor, 11 against and five absentions. The ruling Colorado Party — which has largely dominated Paraguayan politics for decades — supported the modification, as did the largest opposition party Authentic Radical Liberation Party [Partido Liberal Radical Auténtico] and the National Union of Ethical Citizens [Unión Nacional de Ciudadanos Éticos]. Amendment’s passage follows EPP attack in Tacuatí The reform to Law 1337 came four days after EPP militants killed five people, including one police officer, and set several vehicles on fire at a farm in Tacuatí, in the department of San Pedro, about 400 kilometers north of Asunción. Interior Minister Fernando de Vargas said the uptick in attacks in the days after Cartes took office was in response to the warning he gave to the EPP in his inauguration address. “This is a challenge to the government of Cartes, but we must not make the mistake of simply reacting,” de Vargas said in an Aug. 19 interview with Paraguay’s 780 AM radio news. He said the EPP “wanted to create chaos and anarchy against the government’s strong will to end organized crime and terrorism.” De Vargas framed the decision to use the armed forces to confront the EPP as a necessity in light of the limited capacity of Paraguay’s national police. “It’s clear that the police cannot do it alone,” Vargas said in an Aug. 23 press conference at National Police Headquarters in Asunción. “We have some regions with a very small police presence and the costs of having police in these areas is very high.” SENAD: Guerrillas protect drug traffickers from Peru, Bolivia De Vargas said the government believed the use of the armed forces could provide “a definitive solution to eliminating all types of crime in the country.” The amendment could indicate a shifting of the mission of Paraguay’s armed forces — which have not been involved in an international conflict since 1870 — to a more active role in internal security. The Cartes government did not waste time in using its newly delegated powers. On Aug. 24, it sent soldiers to Amambay, Concepción and San Pedro, the three departments where EPP activity has been highest. Armed forces chief Miguel Christ said 400 soldiers had been initially deployed to these three departments, including 60 members of the army’s special forces. The Paraguayan government estimates that the EPP — an outfit inspired by Marxist-Leninist ideas — numbers only 50 to 60 full-time fighters. Facing a government that is, at least publicly, more focused on its elimination than its predecessors, the EPP appears to be adapting as well. In late August, investigators from the country’s National Anti-Drug Secretariat [Secretaría Nacional Antidrogas, or SENAD] revealed that EPP guerrillas were giving protection to drug traffickers moving cocaine from Peru and Bolivia in exchange for weapons.last_img read more

5 Things to Expect from The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Since December, the Colbert Nation yearned for more of witty TV personality Stephen Colbert after he ended his satirical Colbert Report on Comedy Central.Replacing retiree David Letterman, The Late Show With Stephen Colbert raises a lot of questions. What will the humor be like? What will happen to “Stephen Colbert?” Who is Stephen Colbert?While viewers anxiously anticipate the debut, here are five features to expect Tuesday, Sept. 8 at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.Office SpaceEver notice how most talk shows position their desks on the right side of the screen? Colbert’s desk will be on the left. Those opening images and backdrops of a window-lit city at night? How about a sunny cityscape instead? Colbert is making his modernized mark on classic programming.Long-time fans will recognize the Captain America shield and bookshelf from The Colbert Report set. There will also be a sign that purposely reads “The Late Show with,” which hangs over where Stephen Colbert will stand each episode.New Orleans SoulPaul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra will be replaced by New Orleans band Stay Human. Sprinkled with hints of jazz, soul and R&B, bandleader John Batiste describes their musical philosophy as “social music,” catchy beats that welcome a sense of community like “drum circles in Africa.”Stay Human appeared on The Colbert Report several times and obviously made an impression, enough that when Colbert first approached the band, he tossed the interview cards aside. The rest is history.Diverse InterviewsOriginally filled with wisecracking and sometimes intentionally awkward questions, Colbert is no stranger to interviews. In early July, The Late Show’s Youtube channel released a 40-minute video where Colbert annexed a Michigan public access show called Only in Monroe. Questioning the show’s typical hosts as well as Michigan native and infamous rapper Eminem, the structure and style of the interviews shined a possible light on what to expect on Sept. 8.Actor George Clooney and Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush will be the first guests – or victim, if you’re Jeb Bush – on the show. Hollywood talent like George Clooney was a given, but politics was an uncertainty. After a brief Twitter squabble with Jeb Bush as well as mocking Donald Trump’s presidential announcement back in June, it’s clear Colbert isn’t stepping too far away from his political background, and he’s sure as hell not letting up on his Republican “pals.”Guests later this week include the uproarious Amy Schumer, Uber CEO Travis Kalanick, and musical talent like Kendrick Lamar and Willie Nelson.Mixed AudienceIn age, we mean. Contrary to the image above, alongside its partner-in-politics The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, The Colbert Report always suffered criticism of statistically appealing to a biased demographic majority: progressive, liberal youth. CBS hopes to blend the Colbert Nation with new audiences from all backgrounds. With so many differing opinions and perspectives on one tiny set, let’s hope no one mentions the forbidden dinner-table topics!The Man Behind the MaskThis is without a doubt the biggest buzz surrounding the show. On The Colbert Report, viewers glimpsed an Irish Catholic Bill O’Reilly-wannabe and Tolkienist – a hardcore fan of fantasy author J.R.R. Tolkien. But Colbert emphasized that his ultra-conservative alter ego is a relic of the past, as most conservatives are (badum-tish).While comedy is a given, the over-the-top idiocy will tone down to what audience previewers described as “genuine.” The question then becomes, when the real Stephen Colbert stands up, will he outperform the beloved Comedy Central character?With all the hype and press surrounding the premiere and likely carrying over into the following morning’s headlines, there is no doubt Stephen Colbert’s long-awaited opening night will be Tuesday night’s show of interest. Stay tuned!last_img read more
