Help Law Enforcement Fight Terror with Vigilance, Not Fear

first_img National Issues,  PSA,  The Blog Recent attacks in New York and New Jersey have reminded us that the reality of terror that we’ve faced since September 11, 2001, is still very real.But the events were also a reminder of the importance of vigilant citizens reporting suspicious activity to help law enforcement disrupt attacks and find those responsible.Law enforcement at all levels – federal, state and local police – are working 24-7 to keep Americans safe.Here in Pennsylvania we are working with our partners to create clear lines of communication, better share information and ensure both law enforcement and private institutions and citizens are prepared.However, law enforcement doesn’t have enough eyes and ears alone to be everywhere, see everything and know all suspicious activity.It’s the resident that is most familiar with their community and what to expect on a daily basis. You’re going to be the first ones to recognize that something’s out of place or there’s something that shouldn’t be where it is.That’s why it is important to follow the old adage: See Something, Say Something.It seems too simple. But it was a tip from a resident that led law enforcement to arrest their primary suspect in the recent NY/NJ bombings.The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has a helpful guide on how to identify suspicious activity.If you see something suspicious, don’t be afraid – call 9-1-1 and alert local law enforcement.You never know the difference it could make in helping prevent something bad from happening.

ASV/AUV Survey System on Trials in Loch Ness

first_imgASV Global is leading a collaborative research project called ‘Autonomous Surface and Sub-surface Survey System’ (ASSSS), which aims to deliver an integrated system for shore-based, full water column marine surveys using multiple unmanned systems. The project, part funded by Innovate UK, hopes to encourage wider adoption of unmanned systems.The project combines the advantages of autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and autonomous surface vehicles (ASVs) to further data gathering opportunities.The ASV follows the AUV in order to provide position updates to improve dead reckoning whilst the AUV provides status updates and basic survey information back to the ASV to be transmitted to shore.The project team involving SeeByte, Sonardyne and the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) are carrying out trials in Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands this week (14 May 2018).This week’s trials are building upon the capability demonstrated in two previous trials in 2017.The initial trial in May 2017 saw the C-Worker 5 ASV successfully communicate with, and track, the ALR over a 6 day period. Sonardyne provided a comprehensive suite of underwater positioning, communications and imaging technology for the Autosub Long Range (ALR) AUV developed by NOC.Trials in September 2017 took place in Plymouth over 13 days and included night-time operations. These trials focused on gathering solstice side scan data for sea floor mapping using the ALR and transmitting real-time snippets of the data containing interesting features back to the ASV using the BlueComm 200 underwater optical communications system.The follow and search behaviours executed by the C-Worker 5 could be configured to follow the target at an offset to the course and can also be configured to respond to different target sources such as an automatic identification system (AIS) which was also seen in this set of trials.Other successes during this demo included the launch and recovery of the ASV and AUV from a 6T SWL hydraulic crane on MTS Terramare, a 26m converted landing craft. This helped to prove the application and capability of the ASSSS system for smaller survey operations.The main objective of this project is to accelerate the wider adoption of unmanned systems and enable long term, low-cost survey and monitoring operations for offshore energy applications, deep sea mining prospecting and Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) monitoring.There will also be a consequential reduction in the need to place humans in dangerous environments and a greater acceptability of unmanned systems by operators and regulators. Adoption of the technology is likely to spawn opportunities in adjacent market sectors and facilitate cross domain technology transfer.Source: ASVlast_img read more

EPL: Norwich end Leicester winning run

first_imgRelatedPosts Fenerbahce offers Iheanacho N5b loan deal Leicester City want offers for Iheanacho Leicester keeper Schmeichel defends under-fire De Gea Diligent Norwich ended Leicester’s winning run with an excellent point at the King Power Stadium. Teemu Pukki’s opener was cancelled out by Tim Krul’s own goal as the Foxes missed the chance for a ninth straight Premier League victory after a 1-1 draw. Liverpool’s lead at the top is now 10 points after the second-placed Foxes dropped points for the first time since their defeat at Anfield in October. Leicester lacked their usual zip but the Canaries’ excellent defensive display frustrated the hosts and they more than deserved a point. Daniel Farke’s side are now three points from safety. In predictable fashion Leicester dominated the early possession but Norwich remained composed. Krul gathered Kelechi Iheanacho’s weak effort after six minutes while Alex Tettey’s drive was blocked by Ben Chilwell at the other end. Krul, though, nearly handed the Foxes an early Christmas present 14 minutes in when he fumbled Youri Tielemans’s drive onto the post, before recovering ahead of Jamie Vardy. Two minutes later Nowich missed a golden chance for the opener. Emi Buendia and Sam Byram linked on the right and when Byram crossed for the unmarked Pukki the stretching striker could not turn in. Yet the Finland international had no problems netting his ninth of the season after 26 minutes. Norwich had continued to ask questions and opened up the Foxes again when Buendia slipped in Pukki to outpace Caglar Soyuncu and beat Kasper Schmeichel with a low finish. It was what the Canaries deserved after an excellent first-half display of patience and fearlessness. Yet the visitors undid a lot of their good work to allow Leicester level seven minutes before the break. They switched off and Vardy touched on James Maddison’s corner at the near post. His header was flashing across goal and Krul’s attempted save only turned the ball in to his own net. The goalkeeper was almost beaten again two minutes into the second half when Vardy latched onto Maddison’s pass, rounded Krul and rolled the ball onto the outside of the post from a tight angle. Leicester were yet to hit top gear and with Norwich defending well they struggled to find clear openings. The Canaries offered little going forward themselves and while Buendia bent a free kick over they focused on keeping the Foxes at bay. Wilfred Ndidi nodded wide after 67 minutes but Leicester lacked inspiration and ideas, even if Krul was forced into a smart low save by Vardy, whose own scoring streak of eight straight games ended. Soyuncu blocked Pukki’s effort in a rare Norwich opening as the game ticked into the final 10 minutes. Ricardo Pereira was then forced into brilliant recovering challenge when Pukki raced onto a bouncing ball with three minutes left. Ben Godfrey almost turned into his own net in stoppage time but Leicester were forced to settle for a draw.Tags: Kasper SchmeichelKelechi IheanachoSam ByramTeemu Pukkilast_img read more

Lambert calm after frustrating loss

first_imgAston Villa boss Paul Lambert claimed after his side’s 2-1 home defeat to Newcastle that the contest had been “a bad one to lose” – but he is not about to get carried away over how things are shaping up at this early stage of the season. As it turned out, a 73rd-minute strike from substitute Yoan Gouffran ensured Newcastle took all three, the forward reacting after Brad Guzan had parried a shot from the impressive Hatem Ben Arfa, whose close-range 18th-minute opener had been cancelled out by Christian Benteke’s 67th-minute headed equaliser. Following the final whistle, Lambert – whose side are currently 16th in the table, two points better off than bottom-placed Sunderland – said: “The start we have had has been hard, but this was a bad one to lose. “But if you look at all the results, there have been plenty of draws, and we are only four games into the season. “There is a long, long way to go.” In their past 40 home league games, stretching back to 2011-12, Villa have won only nine times and some of the club’s fans voiced their discontent from the stands with boos on Saturday. Asked about that, Lambert, who took charge of the midlands outfit in the summer of 2012, stressed he would never be critical of the supporters after the backing they have given him, and also emphasised that his players need to be galvanised rather than inhibited by playing at home. “I’m not one for excuses,” said the Scot, who confirmed Villa defender Jores Okore had sustained what looked like a knee injury during the Newcastle game. “You have to thrive on that crowd and playing in front of it – it is a great crowd to play in front of. The result means Villa have now lost three Barclays Premier League games in a row since beginning their top-flight campaign so impressively by winning 3-1 at Arsenal, with the other reverses coming at Chelsea and at home against Liverpool. Lambert has no doubt the four fixtures have made for a tough start and it seems he may well have regarded Saturday’s meeting with the Magpies at Villa Park as a particularly important opportunity to pick up points. “You have to be able to handle it.” While it is a frustrating time for Villa, suddenly things do not seem so bad for Newcastle. There has been plenty of talk about doom and gloom around the Tyneside club – who finished fifth in the Premier League in 2011-12 but 16th last term – after a summer in which the only new signing they made was Loic Remy, recruited on loan from QPR. Former Newcastle players such as Alan Shearer, Robert Lee and Andy Cole had spoken out in the build-up to the Villa match about what they regarded as the Magpies’ failings in the transfer market. And among the visiting fans at Villa Park, a banner was visible which mocked Newcastle director of football Joe Kinnear, who was appointed over the summer. But the win continued what has been a steady improvement for the team this season. Newcastle began their league campaign with a 4-0 loss at Manchester City, but have since drawn with West Ham and then beaten Fulham and now Villa. Afterwards, Pardew said he and his team had to accept the opinions of the club’s ex-pros as they had earned the right to express them, adding that the best response was to win games. He also singled out Ben Arfa for particular praise. The France midfielder’s goal was simple in comparison to his superb match-winning strike against Fulham last time out, but he was a constant thorn in Villa’s side. Pardew said: “Hatem got probably the simplest goal he is ever going to score. “But he got in the box, something we have encouraged him to do, and he got his reward for that. “In the first half I really felt we controlled the game – perhaps too well. “At half-time it was difficult to get the team ready for the second half because you know it can’t quite be the same. “We came under pressure for 20 minutes and had to weather a little bit of a storm in that period.” Newcastle eventually emerged with a victory they deserved overall at the end of a contest in which several of their players had made notable contributions. As well as Ben Arfa, that included striker Remy, making his first Newcastle start, and midfielder Yohan Cabaye, returning to the first XI after his proposed move to Arsenal failed to materialise. Pardew said: “Both of those (Cabaye and Remy) were not really at 100%, but I wanted to put them in because I felt just their names, if nothing else, would affect the opposition.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Wenger to wait on Wishere

first_img Press Association “We want to respond quickly. We have faced that already in our season. “I am confident in that capacity of my team to respond very quickly in a very strong way. That is the target tomorrow.” Premier League leaders Arsenal will be out to heap more problems on the struggling Eagles, who parted company with manager Ian Holloway in the wake of the 4-1 home defeat by Fulham on Monday night. Holloway felt he did not have the energy to help Palace turn around their early season troubles, which has seen them take just three points from their opening eight games. Despite that Wenger still believes the decision, which was made by mutual consent, was “very quick” for a manager he has much respect for. “It is very difficult to do that and I find it very quick and very early to separate with Ian Holloway. For me, he has exceptional talent to manage a football team,” Wenger said. “He is a football man, has something that belongs to him that he is special, but you feel there is a strength in there that can take people on board with him.” Wenger added: “Defeat after defeat when you want absolutely everything to win it can drain you down, that can happen to everybody and when you are a bit older you can maybe deal with it a little bit better, but what is the killer in our job to lose a succession of games and when you lose five, six or seven on the trot that is difficult to swallow.” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is not overly concerned by Jack Wilshere’s troublesome ankle, but will keep a close eye on the fitness of the England midfielder. Wenger, though, believes with careful management Wilshere can maintain his fitness following a frustrating spell on the sidelines which scuppered his hopes of playing at both Euro 2012 and the London Olympics. “No it is not a major problem, but as I told you before the season started I will have to monitor him until he is completely through that period with any doubts and that is what I tried to do,” the Arsenal manager said. Midfielder Mathieu Flamini will be available having missed the Dortmund game as a precaution after suffering a mild concussion in the 4-1 win over Norwich. Wenger revealed club-recording signing Mesut Ozil had played on Tuesday night despite suffering from a virus, which went some way to explain a subdued performance from the German playmaker. “He was sick before the game and he was not at his best on the night,” Wenger added. “He said he was all right, but in the two days before he had a virus and you could see that physically he was not at his best.” Wenger, though, was not looking for excuses. “It is simple. Dortmund was organised to stop us from playing our game and one of their game plans was to stop Ozil from getting into the game and they did that way,” he said. Wilshere will be assessed ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Crystal Palace after being substituted during the second half of the midweek Champions League defeat to Borussia Dortmund. The 21-year-old had caused some concern when he pulled up after jarring his ankle when running through on goal in the first half. last_img read more

Coates: Big finish is a big help

first_imgStoke chairman Peter Coates believes their astounding 6-1 final day demolition of Liverpool will help summer recruitment plans. The Potters demolished the visitors in an incredible first half which saw them lead 5-0 just over a week ago and Coates thinks the effects of that will have carried far beyond the conscience of domestic football. Manager Mark Hughes is looking to build on back-to-back top-10 Premier League finishes for the first time in the club’s history and Coates is of the opinion the way they signed off last season can only assist with that. “Ending the season in the manner that we did has certainly helped,” he told Stoke City Player. “The more established you are the better the quality of players that you are able to attract. “We have got a number of targets but it is never easy to get them in. “We are working on it though and hopefully we will be in a position to start the season with a stronger and better squad than we ended the last season with. “That is obviously the objective, but for that to happen you need one or two things to fall into place. “There are players who have been identified by the recruitment team, which Mark Hughes obviously oversees, and there are opportunities for us to maybe get one or two things done. “Everybody wants to bring the best players available in to their club, and we are no different. “We are looking to add to the quality we already have here.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger vows to weed out troublemakers

first_imgArsenal manager Arsene Wenger has condemned the disturbances by Gunners’ fans following the end of Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup victory at Tottenham, and vowed the club will fully cooperate with the authorities to help identify those responsible. Wenger admits the Chile forward is working off a hangover from the summer’s Copa America success and felt he perhaps should have been given more time to recover. “I think I played him very early before he was completely fit, physically, that is one explanation,” said Wenger. “The second is that every player who has won a big trophy with the national team takes some while to settle and come back to his best. These are the two main explanations for me. “Physically he is not completely ready, coming out of a big achievement and that takes time. “I don’t worry for Alexis Sanchez. Even when he doesn’t score he is still a major threat for everybody and I am confident he will score very soon.” Arsenal will have midfielder Santi Cazorla back from a one-match suspension after his red card at Chelsea, but must wait on an appeal against an improper conduct charge for defender Gabriel following the fall-out from his clash with Diego Costa. Wenger said: “He was sorry for what happened and very disappointed, but he is a fighter and his attitude in training the whole week was completely focused and motivated. “If there is no punishment we are a bit lucky, if there is a punishment I have to take it.” Midfielder Francis Coquelin is recovering from a minor knee problem, while Wenger revealed Jack Wilshere’s operation to help heal a hairline fracture in his fibula went well and the England international could be back around Christmas. Leicester are a place above Arsenal in fourth, having impressed with an unbeaten start to the campaign under new boss Claudio Ranieri. Wenger believes the Italian is a welcome addition back to the Premier League following his work at Stamford Bridge from 2000 to May 2004. “He built the (Chelsea) team that was so successful at the start,” the Gunners boss said. “I remember them finishing second in the league with Ranieri and the team was upcoming with young players like John Terry and Frank Lampard, who were the players that contributed to the success of Chelsea.” Midfielder Mathieu Flamini struck a stunning late winner to secure bragging rights in the north London derby. However, the celebrations were overshadowed by disturbances which saw a minority of the travelling supporters in the corner of the South Stand ripping down hoardings of Tottenham club slogans, with police and stewards forced to intervene. Press Association Arsenal are now working with both Tottenham and the authorities, with banning orders a likely outcome for any offenders. Wenger was disappointed the incident had taken the shine off what was a positive response to a difficult spell following defeat at Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League and also in a fiery clash at Stamford Bridge last weekend. “We cooperate completely with the authorities to sort that out. We don’t want any violence,” said Wenger, who takes his side to Leicester on Saturday. “I don’t really know what happened but we are the disposal of the authorities to help them to sort it out.” Wenger feels the performance at White Hart Lane showed his squad, which saw several players rotated, have the needed character to get their campaign back on track. He said: “It shows that we have a big squad at a very strong level and I have always considered that because I have confidence in every single player. “The team who played at Tottenham basically played at Zagreb the week before. That shows I have great confidence in my players.” Alexis Sanchez has yet to find the net in his eight performances this season. last_img read more
