Mark Montgomery, the commander of GWCSG. “Our alliance with Australia is solidly grounded in our shared values and common security concerns and approaches. We coordinate closely with our Australian partners to promote security throughout the region.”Over the next two weeks the GWCSG will participate in various events with their RAN partners including air-defense warfare, anti-submarine warfare, surface warfare, visit, board, search and seizure, air-to-air training, and close-air support to amphibious forces.“This exercise provides effective and intense training to ensure our forces are capable, interoperable, and deployable on short notice” said Montgomery. “It increases the ability of all participants to plan, coordinate and execute complex operations.”Participants from the GWCSG include Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS George Washington (CVN 73) with embarked Carrier Air Wing 5, embarked Commander Destroyer Squadron 15, Ticonderoga-class guided-missile cruiser USS Antietam (CG 54), Arleigh-burke class guided-missile destroyers USS Lassen (DDG 82), USS Preble (DDG 88), USS Momsen (DDG 92), USS Chung-Hoon (DDG 93), and the RAN guided-missile frigate HMAS Sydney (FFG 03).[mappress]Press Release, July 16, 2013; Image: US Navy Training & Education GWCSG Begins Their Portion of Talisman Saber 2013 Share this article
New research that combines cell phone data from 15 million people in Kenya with detailed information on the regional incidence of malaria has revealed, on the largest scale so far, how human travel patterns contribute to the disease’s spread. The findings from researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) and seven other institutions indicate that malaria, in large part, emanates from Kenya’s Lake Victoria region and spreads east, chiefly toward the capital, Nairobi.The study appears in the October 12, 2012 issue of the journal Science.“This is the first time that such a massive amount of cell phone data—from millions of individuals over the course of a year—has been used, together with detailed infectious disease data, to measure human mobility and understand how a disease is spreading,” said senior author Caroline Buckee, HSPH assistant professor of epidemiology.Malaria kills about 1 million people each year—90% are children under age 5 in sub-Saharan Africa—and threatens over 3 billion globally.To estimate malaria’s potential spread, it’s important to factor in not only information about the location of the mosquitoes that carry the malaria parasite, but also the behavior of the people who might be infected, said Buckee. Since many infected people have no symptoms, they can unintentionally carry the parasite during their travels and infect hundreds of others.
1. Miley Cyrus—32% The lady raking in the chips is gonna be…Miley? Cyrus celebrated her 22nd birthday on the same day that Chicago celebrated its big milestone. What better birthday gift to herself (aside from a giant pizza cake and a mechanical bull shaped like a penis, obviously) than riding her wrecking ball over to the Cook County Jail to do a little Hot Honey Twerk? And that’s showbiz, kid! And let’s not forget that the tuner runs in the family. View Comments 3. “Mama June” Shannon—8% Does everyone’s favorite and/or least favorite pageant mom have what it takes to be the keeper of the keys, the countess of the clink, the mistress of Murderers’ Row, Matrom Mama Morton?! Hm, we’ll choose not to answer that and just quietly sip our go-go juice. 2. Lindsay Lohan—16% LiLo concludes her stage debut in the West End’s Speed-the-Plow on November 29, and no, her run wasn’t a disaster. The star showed up when she needed to, knew her material and got decent reviews. She may have served only a fraction of her jail sentence(s), but that’s enough to bring some prison realness to Velma. On November 23, Chicago surpassed Cats and became the second longest-running show in Broadway history. The evening’s performance featured cameos by a slew of alums from the Tony-winning revival, including original stars Ann Reinking, Bebe Neuwirth, James Naughton and Joel Grey. Keeping in mind that Chicago is, in fact, about people becoming famous for reasons that shouldn’t make them famous, we figured we’d ask you which real-life tabloid star you’d like to see light up the Great White Way in Chicago. The votes are in, and here’s who you chose (because we forced you to). Always in the best of taste, right? Uh, something like that.
