But 39-percent indicated they ate less in 2013 than they did in 2012 – while 10-percent of beef and other red meat eaters said they consumed more of those meats in 2013. Mintel Global Food Analyst Patty Johnson is quoted as saying health trends motivating consumers to cut fat and cholesterol intake are the most dominant factors affecting the red meat market – a release from Mintel does not cite specific numbers relating to consumer health concerns. By Gary Truitt – Jan 28, 2014 Home Indiana Agriculture News Survey Says Consumers Eating Less Meat SHARE Facebook Twitter It does show – however – that 58-percent of consumers have noticed the price of red meat increasing in the past 12 months. Thirty-six percent said it is too expensive to buy as often as they’d like.

CVW 9 Commander Hits 1.000th Trap

first_img CVW 9 Commander Hits 1.000th Trap View post tag: Landing View post tag: americas The catapult was ready for launch. The F/A-18E Super Hornet pilot saluted and the aircraft propelled off the flight deck, into the sky.It was a process Capt. Stuart Baker had repeated countless times throughout his 25 years in the U.S. Navy, but today his landing would be different. Today, his landing would make him a member of a small and distinguished group of naval aviators.Baker, the commanding officer of Carrier Air Wing (CVW) 9, accomplished his 1,000th carrier-arrested landing, or trap, aboard Nimitz-class aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74), Dec. 11, in an aircraft from the Vigilantes of Strike Fighter Squadron (VFA) 151.During his career, Baker accumulated over 4,000 flight hours flying in several different types of aircraft. In flight school he learned to fly the T-34 single-engine propeller Mentor and T-2 Buckeye jet. He flew the A-4 Skyhawk, before piloting the F/A-18A, F/A-18C and F/A-18E aircraft which would define his roles in operations Southern Watch, Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom.With his latest achievement complete, Baker will finish his tour with CVW9 soon.Press release, Image: US Navy Back to overview,Home naval-today CVW 9 Commander Hits 1.000th Trap View post tag: 1.000th View post tag: CVW 9 View post tag: Navy View post tag: News by topic View post tag: hits View post tag: Carrier View post tag: Commander December 16, 2014 View post tag: Arrested Authorities View post tag: Naval Share this articlelast_img read more

USS Jackson (LCS 6) completes Full Ship Shock Trials

first_img Share this article U.S. Navy’s Independence-variant littoral combat ship USS Jackson (LCS 6) underwent the third and final underwater explosion on July 16, thereby completing the Full Ship Shock Trials (FSST).The Navy began conducting FSST for the Independence variant littoral combat ship USS Jackson (LCS 6) off the coast of Florida earlier this month.The purpose of FSST is to validate the operational survivability of new construction ships after exposure to underwater shock. Three tests were scheduled for the ship and each test was conducted with a 10,000-pound explosive charge.On Saturday July 16, USS Jackson (LCS 6) was subjected to the third and final underwater explosion as part of her FSST. There were reports of increased seismic activity around the time of the test.According to the Navy, the ship performed exceptionally well, sustaining minimal damage and returned to port under her own power. A large amount of data was collected during FSST on the majority of shipboard systems and the Navy will compile and analyze the data over the next several months.Austal Chief Executive Officer David Singleton said this test now completes the physical shock trials for the LCS program and noted the positive reaction by the United States Navy, following the trial. “We’re very pleased with the performance of the USS Jackson during these Full Ship Shock Trials, following the extensive work program that has been implemented on the ship to meet this standard. Whilst the Navy will continue to assess the results for several months the final test appears to validate the ability of our aluminum trimaran to operate and survive after exposure to underwater shock,” he said.Prior to any testing, the Navy ensures an exclusion zone is established around the test location. A Notice to Mariners (NOTAM) is released before each shot stating that hazardous conditions to surface vessels may be present and for vessels not involved in the test to remain clear.Similarly, the Navy takes the safety and security of marine mammals seriously, and all testing is executed to avoid the various migration patterns of marine life. Additional lookouts are posted to detect any marine mammal activity and test shots are not conducted if marine mammals are in proximity.As part of the test program for the Littoral Combat Ship, the Navy is preparing to conduct FSST on a Freedom variant ship, USS Milwaukee (LCS 5), later this summer off the coast of Florida.

Why Counting Mass Shootings is a Bad Way to Understand Gun Violence in America

first_imgLike this story? Sign up for our daily newsletter to get more of our best work. Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York By Lois Beckett, ProPublicaAccording to articles this week across the Internet, there has been an average of one mass shooting every day in the United States: 355 so far this year. It’s a jarring statistic, and one that has gone viral in the wake of this week’s massacre in San Bernardino, California.But there are two problems with the number: It doesn’t actually provide a clear estimate of how often the country has seen shooting rampages like the one in San Bernardino. And it obscures the broader reality of gun violence in America.Counting “mass shootings” is notoriously complicated and contested, since there is no standard definition of what they are. Is it best to count shootings that injure or kill a certain number of people? Or should the definition focus more narrowly on attacks in which the motivation of the shooter “appears to be indiscriminate killing”?Mother Jones, which has been tracking mass shootings since 2012, has counted just four mass shootings this year, and a total of 73 since 1982, as Mother Jones editor Mark Follman has noted in The New York Times.In 2014, the FBI released its own count of “active shooter” incidents, focusing on events where law enforcement and citizens may have the chance to intervene and change the outcome of the ongoing shooting. It tallied a total of 160 of these events from 2000 to 2013–including high-profile shootings at Virginia Tech, Fort Hood, and Sandy Hook Elementary School– with an average of 11 per year.The “355 mass shootings this year” that has been rocketing around the Internet comes from a crowdsourced Reddit initiative that gathers media reports of shootings in which four or more people were shot.The Reddit count includes many incidents that Mother Jones, the FBI, and others leave out: for instance, a home robbery, a drive-by shooting, and a gang fight.The Reddit project’s organizers suggest this broader approach does a better job of capturing the burden of gun violence–including the suffering and costs of treating people who are shot and survive.“The most obscene incidents of gun violence usually do not make the mainstream news at all,” the project’s introduction says, citing a nightclub shooting in Tennessee in which18 people were shot and only one person killed. “We believe the media does a disservice to mass shooting victims by virtually ignoring them unless large numbers are killed.”Yet bundling together all incidents in which four people or more people are shot doesn’t capture the bigger picture.As ProPublica detailed last week, gun murder in America is largely a story of race and geography. Half of all gun murder victims are black men. The gun murder rate for black Americans is dramatically higher than it is for white Americans. And the burden of violence tends to be concentrated in certain neighborhoods of certain cities.Reddit’s Mass Shooting Tracker does not include any breakdown by race. In response to questions about the group’s numbers, one project organizer, GhostofAlyeska, wrote, “Our intent is not to analyze the causes or cures for gun violence, but simply to expose the available data. We’re volunteers working from a reddit community, nothing more.”The Reddit project cites 462 people killed under its broad definition of mass shootings. The number of gun homicides of black men killed in 2013, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: 5,798.Baltimore alone has seen a total of 316 total homicides so far this year–the vast majority of them shooting deaths of black victims, according to the Baltimore Sun’s homicide map. The city’s homicide rate is now at a record high. The Reddit tracker captures eight of those deaths.San Bernardino has two entries in this year’s Mass Shooting Tracker: yesterday’s attack, and a nightclub shooting reportedly linked to gang violence. The area has long struggled with poverty, gangs, and homicide. “My son was shot to death with an AK–47. My nephew was murdered and his body was burned and buried,” San Bernardino resident Marisa Hernandez told Vice News on Wednesday. “This type of mass shootings happens everyday here to our kids and nobody stops it, nobody does anything.”last_img read more
