Nova Kakhovka (Ukraine) (AFP) – Armed Russian soldiers patrol the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station in southern Ukraine, a strategic target captured in the early hours of Moscow’s military operation, restoring a crucial water supply to annexed Crimea.

Three months after President Vladimir Putin sent troops to Ukraine, the turbines of the power station in the Russian-controlled Kherson region are still in full motion as the waters of the mighty Dnipro River rush.

But more importantly for Moscow, its troops now control the full length of a critical freshwater supply to Crimea via a Soviet-era canal that was blocked by Ukraine after Russia held a referendum for annex the peninsula in 2014.

AFP visited the site of the Kakhovka power plant and dam as part of a press tour organized by the Russian army, permanently accompanied by Russian soldiers armed with machine guns.

Although it is located away from the front line which extends further north, the Russians are vigilantly guarding the strategic site which they believe has been the subject of attempts at “sabotage”.

“There were attempts to introduce explosive substances, but they were all foiled,” says Vladimir Leontyev, a Russian-appointed head of the Kakhovka district civil-military administration.

Leontyev says any destruction of the dam would cause “great misfortune” and devastating floods that would submerge buildings downstream.

On the dam, a fence has a large torn hole, as if a vehicle had run through it in the river. Officials gave no explanation for this.

“A lot of water” for Crimea

The reservoir behind the Kakhovka dam allows water to flow through the North Crimea Canal, built in Soviet times to supply fresh water to the arid areas of southern Ukraine and Crimea.

For eight years, the canal lay dry after Ukrainian authorities said Russia failed to pay for supplies and built a concrete dam over it, causing serious problems with irrigation and water access in Crimea.

New Russian-installed authorities in the Kherson region said water deliveries to Crimea resumed in early March and 1.7 million cubic meters are now being sent to the peninsula daily.

“There is a lot, a lot of water going to Crimea. At the moment we are not asking for payment, this is our contribution, compensation for the losses suffered by Ukrainians and Russians for eight years”, said Leontiev.

He added that “all staff” at the factory have remained on site and have been working continuously since February 24. Civilians can use the road over the dam that crosses the Dnipro River after passing a checkpoint with Russian soldiers.

The plant continues to generate electricity, which feeds into the unified Ukrainian power grid and supplies both areas still under kyiv control and those taken by Muscovite troops.

“We cannot stop the production of electricity and its delivery into the unified electricity network” of Ukraine, added Leontyev.

At the moment, he says, “it’s physically impossible.”

Believe it or not, the New York Knicks haven’t had a 20 ppg scorer at point guard since Stephon Marbury in the 2004-05 season. That could change for them this offseason, though.

Marc Berman of the New York Post reported this week that the Knicks have an interest in trading for Indiana Pacers guard Malcolm Brogdon. Berman adds that the Knicks are desperate for a point guard.

Brogdon, 29, will enter the final year of his contract with the Pacers next season and owes $22.6 million. He’s put up 20.4 points per game the past two seasons but has been limited to 36 games this season due to injury. Indiana also had little reason to rush him into action since they were tanking and had acquired 22-year-old guard Tyrese Haliburton in a midseason trade.

On the heels of an unconventional offense that relied on big man Julius Randle and winger RJ Barrett for the majority of playmaking duties, the Knicks went 37-45 and even missed the play-in tournament. . It looks like acquiring a proper playmaker is a big deal for them this summer, as they’ve also recently been linked with another interesting playmaker target.

JOINT BASE ELMENDORF-RICHARDSON, ALASKA – Thirty-four New York Air National Guard Airmen from the 106th Rescue Wing Medical Group trained in Alaska alongside their Active Air Force counterparts from 1st through May 15.


The Airmen traveled from FS Gabreski Air National Guard Base in Westhampton Beach, New York, to train with the 673rd Medical Group.


This was the 106th Medical Group’s military installations’ first annual training since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.


The medical airmen honed their skills with hands-on work during the two-week training, said Lt. Col. Shanjay Shetty, 106th Medical Group flight surgeon and joint training commander.


Bioenvironmental engineering specialists from the 106th Medical Group, who reduce health risks in work environments, conducted shop tours and shared best practices with their counterparts from the 673rd Medical Group.


Airmen from the 106th Medical Group’s dental team completed their administrative duties for the 106th and trained at the 673rd’s dental clinic.


The 106th’s flight surgeons trained with their Alaskan peers in water survival and post-capture driving. They also experimented with aerial refueling.


Combat medics rotated to the Joint Base Elmendorf-Richarson hospital. They also trained with advanced medical simulation dummies in a simulated field hospital and combat setting.


“Coming here has been a very productive and very rewarding experience, both personally and professionally,” Shetty said. “The 673rd Medical Group has been very helpful to us in terms of patient care experiences and simulation sessions.”


The 673rd Medical Group is one of the few units with advanced medical simulation dummies, Shetty said.


106th Medical Group commander Lt. Col. Stephen Rush wants all medics to train with these advanced training aids, said 106th Medical Group readiness officer Maj. Mark Wilborn.


“When someone sees ‘MED’ on an Airman’s shoulder, they’re going to expect that they’re able to help,” Wilborn said. “Col. Rush wants everyone who wears this patch to have the ability to be an operational field medic.


Combat medics had to assess a patient’s injuries, mitigate risk to the patient, stop bleeding, treat secondary injuries, resuscitate the patient, and maintain airway.


Essentially, they were expected to take a badly injured “person” from near-death to the barn and ready to be transported, Shetty explained.


“Training on simulation dummies gives us the opportunity to refresh our skills and maintain skills that we may not encounter frequently,” said Airman 1st Class David Mangiameli, one of the medics. “It’s only until pieces of plastic in the training labs become patients in the trauma bays that you can fully appreciate the benefits of being here,” he added.


The 106th Rescue Wing operates and maintains the HC-130J Combat King II search and rescue aircraft and the HH-60G Pave Hawk rescue helicopter. The 106th RQW houses a special warfare squadron with pararescuemen and combat rescue officers and deploys for domestic and overseas operations.

MIAMI — The Boston Celtics had both Al Horford and Marcus Smart back in the starting lineup for Thursday’s Game 2 127-102 win over the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Horford, who abruptly entered NBA health and safety protocols hours before Boston’s 118-107 Game 1 loss on Tuesday, was upgraded to questionable Wednesday night and then quickly upgraded from doubtful to available in the space of about 90 minutes Thursday.

Smart, who missed Game 1 with a midfoot sprain he suffered in Game 7 against the Milwaukee Bucks, was listed as likely to play. Smart played 40 minutes and had 24 points, 12 assists and nine rebounds while Horford had 10 points in 33 minutes.

“[Horford] passed all the protocols, passed all the tests,” Celtics coach Ime Udoka said before the game. “I’m not a doctor, but he had to pass a number of tests and you know, league protocols , and so he did it and he felt good from the start. Glad to find him.”

For a player to return to play after testing positive for COVID-19, there had been two routes to a return: either register two consecutive negative PCR tests at least 24 hours apart, or return two consecutive PCR tests sampled at least 24 hours apart. with cycle threshold values ​​greater than 30 beginning no earlier than days 4 and 5 after an initially positive test.

However, in a memo dated April 30 and obtained by ESPN, the league added a third game-day testing mechanism to potentially allow players to return on game day.

In this circumstance, a player could return to team activities if he returns two consecutive “undetected” results from PCR tests collected on match day.

If either PCR test returns a positive or inconclusive test result, this protocol does not apply and the player must remain isolated.

The Celtics also announced that Derrick White will miss Game 2 for personal reasons as he and his wife are expecting a child.

“Derrick is having a baby,” Udoka said. “It happened earlier than expected. But we always support our guys in this situation. He had to rush home today.”

New Haven’s acting police chief is moving out of 1 Union Ave., and the mayor is breaking with precedent by choosing who to put in his place.

Find out what’s happening in New Havenwith free real-time Patch updates.

Acting Chief Renee Dominguez announced her departure — originally planned once New Haven finds a new chief — at a Tuesday afternoon news conference outside police headquarters.

“Friday will be my last day on the job,” Dominguez said, citing “negative” stories in the media about his predicament as having influenced his decision.

Find out what’s happening in New Havenwith free real-time Patch updates.

“It’s a good time to go. There’s a lot of criticism. There’s a lot of negative media coverage. The policy, not the performance, is under attack. It’s time to allow officers to keep moving forward,” she said, along with members. of her staff assembled behind her.

Mayor Justin Elicker announced he had decided to appoint his chief administrative officer (CAO), Regina Rush-Kittle, to oversee the department beginning Saturday. Rush-Kittle moved to New Haven last year to take up the CAD position.

It’s a break from precedent: In the last three chief searches, one deputy chief – who at the time was under consideration for the position of permanent chief – served as acting chief: Otoniel Reyes, Anthony Campbell, Dominguez herself. All three were in fact subsequently selected by the mayor for the permanent role (although Dominguez’s nomination was later rejected by the Council of Alders).

Elicker held a press conference at 5:30 p.m. outside City Hall to announce his plan. Rush-Kittle is not a certified Connecticut police officer, but has served as a state trooper (including in supervisory roles) and Middletown cop. As CAO, she oversees the police, among other departments.

Starting Saturday, she will work full-time as acting police chief while assistant CAO Rebecca Bombero steps in to serve as acting CAO, the mayor said.

The mayor said Tuesday that his administration had conversations with POST, or the Connecticut Police Officer Training and Standards Council, and that he believed Rush-Kittle was legally entitled to serve as chief of police. acting police, even though she is not a certified officer. .

Elicker said at the press conference that he bypassed Deputy Chief of Police Karl Jacobson for the role of acting chief because of the ongoing search process for a permanent chief: “I think very strongly of Chief Jacobson I don’t want to influence the process of who the next permanent police chief will be at all. The potential nominee should not fill this position. Elicker had previously named Dominguez as acting chief the last time he was looking for a permanent leader (and did not appoint her until months later).

The application window is closed for the position of chef. Elicker said nine people applied yesterday. He said he wasn’t sure if that number had changed by the time the application window officially closed last night. (See below for video recordings of Dominguez and Elicker’s separate press conferences on Tuesday.)

During his previous press conference, Dominguez repeatedly thanked the base for their support as leader and their good policing in a difficult political environment.

“They’ve cut crime by 73% this year. We have fewer homicides than Hartford, Bridgeport, Waterbury and Hamden. They’ve done it…with the uncertainty of who stands before them as leader “, she said.

“It’s because of them that I choose to leave on Friday. They deserve not to be in the media in a negative way because they do so many positive things. … I have absolutely no regrets. You can’t work in this wonderful city with these incredible people and I have no regrets…. I’m very proud of everything I’ve accomplished and what we’ve accomplished together.

Asked about her next steps, Dominguez replied: “I’m going to have the best job and be a mum for a little while to my two children, which they are very excited about. I’m sure there will be something for me in the future. future, because I haven’t finished. I can’t wait to see what’s next.

His tenure as chief caused controversy for a variety of reasons, including allegations that black officers were disciplined more strictly than white officers, that the department’s senior ranks became all-white for the first time since 1994, that a militaristic approach to policing had replaced community policing and that as a result the department solved far fewer major crimes than other comparable departments. Defenders said Dominguez worked hard and performed well and was unfairly blamed for issues that preceded her and were beyond her control, and affected departments nationwide. (It was erroneously alleged that the Alders were seeking to install a black or Latino chef; in fact, many critics backed a different white candidate for chef. Dominguez is also white.) Elicker delayed the announcement from his Dominguez nomination until just after the last mayoral election and community protest followed.

The judge’s decision added pressure to leave

Dominguez had previously promised Elicker that she would stay on the job until he found a permanent replacement. They both stuck to those positions amid accusations that they were circumventing the city charter by doing so.

Dominguez’s announcement on Tuesday comes about two weeks after a state judge ordered him to step down as acting police chief.

That’s because, in a ruling in a court case first brought by Newhallville Revs. Boise Kimber and Donnarell Elder, State Superior Court Judge Michael Kamp found that the Elicker administration violated the city charter by keeping Dominguez in his “interim”/acting position for more than six months, even after the Board of Alders refused his nomination for the post of full-time chief constable last December. The mayor’s reading of the charter would have allowed him to remain in the acting role indefinitely. The judge found that the charter limits an acting police chief’s time to six months in this temporary role. (Click here to read the disputed section of the city charter.)

Elicker said Tuesday the city would no longer appeal the decision of the judge, who criticized as “illogical” the administration’s legal argument for keeping an acting chief in the temporary role indefinitely. “There is no accused at this stage. The case is moot,” he said.

Asked about the legal basis for appointing Rush-Kittle as acting chief, Elicker said “we are confident” he has that right.

Rush-Kittle, meanwhile, has been the city’s chief executive since December. Prior to serving as City Hall’s “coordinator” – which oversees departments including police, fire, public works, parks and the emergency operations center – Rush-Kittle worked as Deputy State Commissioner of the Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security. She also served three years in the U.S. Marine Reserves and previously served as a corrections officer, Millbury, Mass., deputy police chief, state trooper, and chief of Central District Headquarters for the United States Police Department. ‘State, among other positions.

The city is still looking for a new permanent police chief.

During the press conference, Elicker repeatedly denounced the “politics” of people seeking to undermine Dominguez. He expressed no ulterior motives or doubts about his decision to appoint her.

“I have been deeply impressed by her integrity, her honesty, her commitment to doing the right thing, for her work ethic and her tenacity. She has shown in particular in recent months – with political drama in the background, some people trying to undermine it — a balance and persistence that I think we should all strive to emulate,” Elicker said of Dominguez.

Colonel Thomas Mohler, Texas Guard Chief Chaplain, brings the Rush Limbaugh cigar collection to the Texas Veterans Parade. USCG MH 65 Dolphin rescue helicopter arrives

Tonight I’m going to go home and smoke a good cigar to the Glory of God. It’s like an incense that drifts towards the sky.

— Theologian, Dr. Charles Haddon Surgeon

CORSICANA, TEXAS, USA, May 11, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Texas State Guard Chief Chaplain Col. Thomas Mohler brings his vintage Jeep and Rush Limbaugh cigar collection to the Parade of Texas veterans in Corsicana, Texas on May 20-21, 2022. Afghanistan War Medal of Honor recipient William Swenson, the parade grand marshal, will ride in Col. Mohler’s jeep at the front of the parade at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 21. The night before the parade at the Palace Theater in Corsicana, TX, Col. Mohler will perform the invocation at the Medal of Honor event/show. As the evening of patriotic music and military stories draws to a close, he will perform his “Holy Smokes Devotional” on 6th Street in front of the theater. The event is open to the public.

The US Coast Guard Air Force Base Houston rides to the parade in the world’s most famous all-weather rescue helicopter. They want to be there as more than 3,000 Navarro County veterans are honored. The MH 65E Dolphin helicopter has been the backbone of hurricane search and rescue efforts in the Gulf of Mexico for more than a decade.

Colonel Mohler was deeply involved in the state of Texas’ Operation Lone Star – Border Surge to stem the record influx of immigrants. The operation is known in military terms as OLS-BS. Chaplain Mohler is responsible for 12 chaplains and 26 chaplain assistants who are dealing with the complications of the wave of immigration. “We have to deal with everything from the funeral of the Texas National Guard soldier who drowned trying to save immigrants, to the suicides and other stresses of being deployed to defend the borders of the Lone Star State.”

While serving on the board of the non-profit organization Operation Deployed, Colonel Mohler befriended famed broadcaster Rush Limbaugh and his wife Kathryn. “Rush had a 20-by-20-foot air-conditioned room in his home for his valuable cigar collection. That collection included $250 Cuban cigars that dated back to 2006,” Thomas Mohler said. “When Rush died his wife gave me many of these cigars which we now use to conduct Holy Smokes Christian devotions. I’m proud that one of them will be standing outside the Palace Theater at the end of the Medal of Honor Show on Friday evening May 20, 2022. This is the same program we do for our troops deployed on the Mexico-Texas border.”

The idea for Holy Smokes Devotionals came from the famous theologian, Dr Charles Haddon Surgeon, who said “Tonight I’m going to go home and smoke a good cigar to the glory of God. It’s like incense drifting toward the sky.” The devotions are a respite for active duty service members who have been deployed to the Texas border. The U.S. Border Patrol reported more than 1.6 million immigrant encounters along the U.S.-Mexico border in fiscal year 2021. That’s more than triple the number just a few years ago.

Here is a short Q&A with the chief chaplain of the Texas Guard’s 40 military bases:

Q: Why are parades honoring our military veterans important?
A: There are too many people among the younger generations who have no idea what the greatest generation of World War II, and the women and men of the Korean War, the Desert Storm and the war on terrorism have done for them. We need to teach about the sacrifices these soldiers make to be away from home, to be away from their youth work. The Texas Veterans Parade awakens young people to what the military has done and is doing now to keep us safe.

Q: Why are you delighted that Navarro County and Corsica are doing this parade?
A: This parade gives veterans the opportunity to showcase their vehicles and the tools of their trade. But it also gives the rest of the population who did not serve the opportunity to publicly appreciate those who served. Your parade founder, Bill McNutt, has a son, Will McNutt, who is a Major in the Texas Guard. He hooked us up and I’m thrilled to be able to drive the historic brick streets of Corsicana with a Medal of Honor hero in my vintage Jeep.

The HM 65 E Dolphin helicopter will be piloted by Lt Commander Mike Freeman. He will be joined by General Manager Byron A. Creech. Coast Guard spokesman Sean Kshimetski said, “The Coast Guard is very supportive of our Texas veterans. The American coast has become a battleground in many ways with the influx of drugs and bad actors entering our country by sea, land and air. We want to recruit young people to serve our nation and we will say thank you to the citizens of Navarro County who support us. »

In my life as a school principal, I have resorted from time to time to unique strategies to test the virtues of my students.

There was a time when I wore the school uniform to a parent’s day and addressed the need to understand our students. It was around the middle of last year when the unrest in schools was at its peak.

“Thank you sir, your humility has really helped my son to understand that neither the school nor the parents and teachers are against him,” a parent said during a BOG meeting.

Rather than creating tension within the school, we resorted to creating an environment where students understood their responsibility and had to follow guidelines.

I was posted to school on the outskirts of Nairobi from my village of Kakamega and I tell you, the children in the city are quite a task.

For five years, we have worked to create a link between teachers and students. Played tournaments against each other and even promoted election of student leaders over selection by teachers.

But of course we also changed the school diet to make it more appealing. I remember during my high school years in my national school in Kakamega, the principal, a renowned physics teacher in the country, used to buy us bread for a whole week when there were rumors of a planned event.

When the school’s football or rugby teams won the national tournaments and went to the East African editions, the director bought us bread for a whole weekend. There were days when we even attended half-day classes on Fridays and then the weekend started.

Entertainment, if you remember those nights watching movies at night, started Friday through Sunday.

I borrowed a sheet from my favorite principal and used some of his strategies to keep students engaged and also feeling appreciated.

But the most important thing for me was to test their virtues.

The high school students report to school accompanied by their parents in January 2018.

Case

Above all, we encouraged them to respect junior staff. Cooks, security guards (many people call them guards, in our school they are called soldiers), secretaries, messengers and construction workers.

We also encouraged parents to help shape student behavior.

One of the signs I planted at the entrance to the school reads:

On the highest throne in the world, we still only sit on our own butts

Michel de Montaigne

Coming home a few days before Form One arrived, I saw the mail and smiled. It was absolutely necessary that I test the arrivals of the Form One.

On the day of the report, I was wearing a security guard uniform, although different from the ones we have at school.

My wife Mandy (Amanda) picked it up from a CBD store.

“I’m going trending on Twitter again on opening day,” she said with a laugh.

Along comes the new arrival (I think that’s where the trumpet is played in the movies).

I greeted the parents and welcomed them to the school while the other guards helped carry the luggage here and there.

“Young man, why is your shirt hanging down? Get in before you enter the doors,” I politely asked a student whose shirt had an admission number printed on the bottom.

I asked another to carry his own luggage rather than following the parents from behind.

While ransacking another I found a 2 liter bottle of juice, a commodity we have banned at our school and it was funny but so abominable to hear the cousin who brought him just ask me at kama mimi (shake it).

I almost asked to speak to the parent via a phone call, but saw no need to cause any drama.

You see, the Department of Education has clearly stated that students should be searched and property ransacked for illegal substances. We weren’t taking any risks.

I saw students from all walks of life showing up at school. Like the Form One which came to walk alone with only one bag. It turned out he was an orphan. We have documented his case.

A parent who threw tantrums at the door while refusing to have his student’s bag searched.

Met a majority who had no tuition. I saw students disrespecting guards and more.

Along with conducting the test that would give us some insight into where to start shaping our finishes, I also learned that being a keeper required more than security. These employees perform at their best while handling different personalities.

From directing parents where to park, to what not to allow at school, to even how to pay school fees.

“Please help me here. Queues at banks are tiring and I had to drop my student here then rush to pay,” a parent asked.

He looked jaded, burned from the heat of the scorching sun. I handed over a bottle of water which we stored at the door.

“His cooperative bank, mom usijali (don’t worry mum).

“Cooperative bank ni rahisi sana. We have even sent out a brochure to all parents and you can see the notices we have posted around the school to help with the tuition payment process.

“Easily pay tuition fees via MCo-opCash, M-Pesa PayBill 400222, PesaLink or to a Kwa Jirani Cooperative Agent near you, I advised him.

Some parents who even came tuition-free were helped directly at the bursary.

With Co-op Bank, when you need a loan to pay fees, you can apply for a MCo-opCash salary advance up to Ksh 500,000 with a repayment period of up to 3 months.

You can also use your Co-op VisaCard to pay for back-to-school purchases at no additional cost and enjoy discounts at select outlets.

Barely three hours after signing up for soldier duties at the gate, I was exhausted and my duties as a director were drawing me in. My assistant was overwhelmed.

I wish you had seen the look on the faces of the parents when I introduced myself as principal of the school.

“Haa, I couldn’t even remember it was you after we met last month when I came to ask for admission for my boy,” a stunned mother laughed.

“Humility is one of the key values ​​we uphold at our school,” I replied as admissions homework began.

Back to school is so demanding I tell you.
