Authorities Back to overview,Home naval-today Female Engineers Tour HMS Queen Elizabeth View post tag: Engineers Sixteen of the country’s best and brightest young female engineers were filled with inspiration after visiting Britain’s biggest warship HMS Queen Elizabeth. July 9, 2014 View post tag: HMS Queen Elizabeth View post tag: europe Share this article View post tag: UK Female Engineers Tour HMS Queen Elizabeth View post tag: Tour View post tag: biggest warship View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic The undergraduates from the Brunel University branch of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) were given a personal tour of the 65,000-tonne new carrier – unveiled to the world last week as Her Majesty the Queen officially named the ship in Rosyth.The London-based students were invited to tour the state-of-the-art warship as part of an initiative to promote the role of women in engineering in general and provide the visitors with an insight into the role of female engineers in building the carrier with the Aircraft Carrier Alliance and running the ship as a Royal Navy engineer officer.Babcock engineers Jen McGinley and Laura Porter did the former, while from the ship’s company Petty Officer (Weapon Engineer) Steph Simpson and Chief Petty Officer (Marine Engineer) Lyndsay Oldridge shared their experiences.PO Simpson offered an insight into the Queen Elizabeth’s innovative automated weapons-handling system and communications network and CPO Oldridge provided her expertise on the marine engineering side of the ship – the power and distribution system and its component elements, and the ship’s systems, from chilled and fresh water to sewage treatment plants and fuel management.The highlight for the students was a comprehensive tour of the carrier from the bowels to the bridge.They were shown one of the smaller diesel engines – far larger than any of them had ever experienced before.When coupled with the Queen Elizabeth’s other power plants, the ship generates approximately 110 Megawatts of power.All the visitors – studying across the engineering spectrum: mechanical, social, civil, biomedical and aerospace – were struck by the scale of the Queen Elizabeth project (each of the two ships comprises in excess of 17 million parts).[mappress]Press Release, July 09, 2014; Image: UK Navy View post tag: Female View post tag: Naval
SAN FRANCISCO — Forward Draymond Green will miss Monday’s game against the Oklahoma City Thunder with a lingering right heel issue, giving the Warriors only eight available players for the third straight game.“Yeah, it’s lingering,” coach Steve Kerr said of Green’s heel. “It doesn’t seem like it’s going to be anything that goes on for too long, but it’s also not something we want to aggravate and then keep him out for a long period of time. So we just felt more comfortable giving him another …
5 June 2014 The South African economy is unlikely to fall into recession, the Reserve Bank said on Tuesday, predicting that second-quarter GDP growth would show some improvement, while cautioning that the risks to growth forecasts for the year were “to the downside”. Last week, Statistics SA reported that South Africa’s gross domestic product (GDP) had contracted 0.6 percent quarter-on-quarter in the first three months of the year – its first contraction since the second quarter of 2009, when the world’s economy dipped as a result of a global recession. A second consecutive quarter of negative economic growth would, technically speaking, indicate that the country had entered a recession. Releasing its latest Monetary Policy Review on Tuesday, the central bank noted that a number of adverse supply shocks, particularly from strike action as well as from electricity shortages, had led to negative first-quarter growth. “Although the second quarter is expected to show some improvement, the risks to the 2014 forecast are to the downside,” the Bank said. At its monetary policy committee meeting in May, the Bank revised its growth forecasts for 2014 down from 2.6% to 2.1%. According to the Review, inflation is projected to come in above the bank’s 3% to 6% target range for an extended period of time. In April, the Consumer Price Index (CPI) came in at 6.1%. “Overall, inflation in South Africa is projected to be above target for an extended period of time, with risks tilted towards higher inflation. Over the longer term, this necessitates higher interest rates, and therefore a tightening cycle.” The bank hiked interest rates at its first meeting of the year in January. “However, with domestic economic growth weak, and world inflation and interest rates remaining low, monetary policy tightening is likely to be moderate. This will provide continued support to the economic recovery,” the Review states. The review found that household expenditure has limited prospects for improvements in 2014 due to rising inflation, weak employment growth and muted wealth effects. “Household expenditure will also be constrained by continued moderate credit growth, knock-on effects from the mining strike, and rate hikes, which raise debt service costs and disincentivise further borrowing.” The Bank expressed concern at the country’s antagonistic labour relations and persistent strikes. “In particular, changes in the structure of mining unionisation over the past few years have caused multiple, often violent disruptions to production, the most recent example being the record-length and on-going platinum-sector strike. “These events have been costly in several ways, depriving households of wage income and retailers of customers, damaging exports, and ultimately compromising investment and employment,” the Review states. The Monetary Policy Review, which reviews domestic and international developments that affect inflation and the Bank’s monetary policy stance, is published twice a year. Source: SAnews.gov.za

Dan Cohen AUTHOR The chairman and ranking member of the Senate Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee both expressed their support for the Office of Economic Adjustment (OEA) during a hearing Thursday on the administration’s fiscal 2019 budget request for military construction. Their remarks followed in the wake of a proposal by House Armed Services Chair Mac Thornberry (R-Texas) to eliminate OEA and six other defense support agencies as part of a broader initiative to trim spending on Pentagon overhead by 25 percent.At the outset of questioning the witnesses, Chairman John Boozman (R-Ark.) told Lucian Niemeyer, assistant secretary of defense for energy, installations and environment, he was pleased to see that his prepared testimony included language highlighting the role played by OEA. “OEA’s work is important in the state of Arkansas. And we are currently engaged with OEA on several joint land use studies for installations. I believe maintaining support for this office is crucial and I’m glad you view their work in collaboration with local communities as important and essential as I do,” Boozman said.Niemeyer’s written testimony touched on the agency’s role in preserving DOD’s testing and training ranges, strengthening defense supply chains and promoting alliances between installations and their surrounding communities. “Maintaining support for this office is crucial to the continued ability of our installations to safely and securely operate while responding to fluctuations in military activities, and keeping faith with our service members and families by addressing quality of life issues in local defense communities,” he stated.At the conclusion of the hearing, ranking member Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) said he wanted “to echo the chairman’s enthusiasm” for OEA. “From the policymakers’ perspective, I think it’s at least pretty nearly unanimous,” Schatz said. A webcast of the hearing can be found on the committee’s website.DOD photo by Army Sgt. James McCann
