Both ships are capable of carrying up to 36 F-35B Lightning II stealth jets.The head of the Fleet Air Arm, Rear Admiral Keith Blount OBE, said, “Today marks a significant milestone in the nation’s return to aircraft carrier aviation and carrier strike.“Both ships have been designed from the keel up to operate with the F-35B and the RAF and Royal Navy are working ever closer to see fixed-wing aircraft once more operating from Royal Navy Aircraft Carriers. I feel very proud to be part of it.”Following the flypast at the QEC, the aircraft flew on to RAF Marham, Norfolk.In front of personnel from the Station and invited local guests, the F-35B completed a flypast, demonstrating what the station can expect when Marham becomes its home base in 2018.The Station has already started to prepare for the aircraft’s arrival with work to provide the necessary infrastructure and support facilities.

VIDEO: HII installs deckhouse on USS Tripoli

first_imgIngalls Shipbuilding, a division of Huntington Ingalls Industries has shared a video of a deckhouse being installed on the amphibious assault ship Tripoli (LHA 7).This deckhouse installation on Tripoli was no small feat, according to Premo Sabbatini, LHA 7 program director. “The deckhouse is comprised of five deck levels and includes radio and radar spaces, the primary flight control station, and the pilot house,” he said. “The estimated lift weight for the deckhouse is 701 short tons and required three cranes to complete this task. Performing this milestone ahead of schedule is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our shipbuilders.”HII said the lifting of the deckhouse was a major event in the ship’s construction schedule which begins the integration of the three largest sections of the ship.According to the company, the deckhouse was installed on Saturday—three weeks ahead of schedule.Like USS America (LHA 6) which was delivered in 2014, Tripoli will have an increased aviation capacity to include an enlarged hangar deck, realignment and expansion of the aviation maintenance facilities, a significant increase in available stowage for parts and support equipment, and increased aviation fuel capacity.Similar to its predecessors, the ship will be able to operate as the flagship for an Expeditionary Strike Group. Ingalls has built five Tarawa-class (LHA 1) ships as well as eight Wasp-class (LHD 1) ships.Ingalls was recently also awarded a contract for LHA 8.Ingalls Shipbuilding President Brian Cuccias said: “We are benefitting from serial production, including our process of rolling over the same shipbuilding crews to work on the large-deck amphibious ships. It’s a busy time on LHA 7, and our construction milestones continue to clock in ahead of schedule. We look forward to delivering another quality amphibious ship to our customer in 2018.”Tripoli will be the third ship to bear the name that commemorates the capture of Derna in 1805 by a small force of U.S. Marines and approximately 370 soldiers from 11 other nations.

Baking the digital way

first_imgIngredients supplier Sonneveld’s European Bakery Innovation Centre (EBIC) is taking the baking industry into the 21st century. Digital cameras can record everything in iats test bakery and images they take are put on the internet so that they can be viewed anywhere in the world.Temperatures are monitored throughout the bread-making process and the end product analysed. Computers register every last statistic, from softness and crumb structure to the number of holes and cells in slices of bread, so that they can be used to create graphs and intricate diagrams.”Why? Because knowledge is power,” explains Sonneveld’s newly appointed managing director, Cees Hack.”We want to share the ambition and the passion, which is why we have opened up EBIC. We invite people from our industry – bakers, machine constructors, students and raw material suppliers – to use it as a meeting point. We believe that two heads are better than one. By sharing knowledge, we are encouraging innovation. It’s our desire to become known as the problem-solvers of the industry and we want others to share the wealth.”Geert Sonneveld, who owns the Sonneveld Group, opened the centre on 13 September, 2006, the day the group officially celebrated its 50th anniversary. Sonneveld supplies bread mixes, improvers and release agents to artisan and industrial bakeries worldwide.experiment to perfectAccording to the company, EBIC’s primary purpose is to involve its customers in new developments, allow experiments to be carried out on small production lines and to give artisan bakers an opportunity to refresh or enhance their knowledge.EBIC has a trained sensory panel that conducts a series of consumer tests on products. Members cast their votes on hand-held devices, similar to those used by the audience on the TV quiz Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Companies and bakers can use the test bakery at EBIC to try different methods of preparation and tweak recipes.”We’re very proud of the centre,” says Martin Churchill, technical sales manager for the UK and Ireland. “We think that British bakers and people in the industry can introduce more innovation into the market by using its facilities.”His European counterpart, Ruud Klasens, agrees: “EBIC is a very exciting centre and we welcome everyone from the industry to come and visit.”Sonneveld conducts research for customers and consumers and has contacts with international research institutes and technical bakery libraries across the world.”We believe that, for a baker to be successful, he must understand his consumer,” says Hack. “So one of our latest developments is researching what we believe are the four types of consumers: pure, indulgent, passionate and worldly.consumer profiles”The pure consumer will buy a product for one particular reason – for example, cost. This same category buys ’healthy’ bread for its health benefits.”Indulgent consumers have a sweet tooth. This category will stay in a bakery for an extra few minutes just to look at the cream cakes, whereas passionate consumers love the smell, the feel, the taste and want to know the origin of their bread.”They use all their senses, gathering as much information as possible. And the worldly consumer will travel miles to buy, for example, a naan bread because it tastes like those in Delhi.”But you also have to remember that consumers often switch between categories.” n—-=== Fact file ===?

Be on the watch for ticks with continued warmer weather

first_img(WBNG) — The time off for the holidays along with the warmer conditions have brought a lot of people outside to enjoy some fresh air. “Yeah, I still think people have been out and about. I’ve seen a lot of people bring their dogs out to the park and walking them. Otsiningo and Dorchester especially, we have the beautiful paved trails there,” said Director of Broome County Parks Elizabeth Woidt. If you do find a tick on you, quick removal is key. “We definitely want to make sure people get out and enjoy our area. It’s gorgeous, we have some beautiful parks. We want you out and active. But again, just keep in the back of your mind that when it is warmer there is a chance you could get a tick on you,” said Perkins. Other preventative measures, such as tight fitting clothing and tick repellents can help. If you follow these steps and remain aware, the warmer winter conditions can be enjoyed with no worry. “Ticks like the tall grasses, they like the vegetation. So you want to try to stay where the grass is a little shorter,” Perkins advises.center_img Unfortunately, we aren’t the only ones shaking off the winter blues during the warmth; Ticks are more active in the warmer weather. “Any time that it’s above freezing they are out and they’re active. So just because it’s a little colder, you still have to remember once it hits 32 they’re going to be out and around,” said Senior Public Health Sanitarian Victoria Perkins. “You want to remember quick removal is the best preventative measure. They generally don’t transmit Lyme until they’re been attached and feeding for about 36 hours,” said Perkins. “We’ve got signs in all of our parks and we always kind of give people a fair warning that there are ticks present. Anywhere you go in Broome County, whether you’re in the city of Binghamton or out here at Cole Park, you’re going to have ticks present. Just always check yourself after you’ve been out in the woods,” said Woidt. As you’re walking on trails and through parks, experts say to avoid typical tick hot spots.last_img read more
