Vehicles went through live-fire, developmental and operational testing that concentrated on force protection, safety, performance, reliability and durability. In the coming weeks, Soldiers in Afghanistan will begin to see 150 new Strykers with a double-V hull, or DVH, design that deflects blasts away from the vehicle and the Soldiers inside. The Stryker DVH, with enhanced armor, wider tires and blast-attenuating seats, went from conception to production in less than one year. “The rapid turnaround of the DVH is responsiveness at its best,” Col. Robert Schumitz, Stryker Brigade Combat Team Project Management Office, project manager, said. “Soldier survivability is the Army’s number-one priority. Once we determined that the DVH effort was an achievable and acceptable risk, we swiftly engaged in executing the robust program.” “The Stryker program has been continually responsive to evolutionary threats,” Schumitz said. “The Stryker DVH is a robust program that has enjoyed the Army’s full support to increase Soldier survivability in Operation Enduring Freedom.” Engineers at General Dynamics Land Systems conceived of the double-V-hull design and tested it at Yuma Proving Ground, Ariz., Aberdeen Proving Ground, Md., and the Army’s National Training Center at Fort Irwin, Calif. “We wanted to take advantage of the V shape and get the center of the vehicle farther away from the ground to aid survivability,” said Mike Cannon, senior vice president of General Dynamics Land Systems. There are 140 Stryker DVH’s already in the Army supply chain, and plans are to field a total of 450 vehicles. By Dialogo May 12, 2011 I congratulate you for this program since it introduces us to new inventions in arms By this summer, Soldiers in Afghanistan will be riding in new Stryker armored combat vehicles that have an improved hull design to protect them from improvised explosive devices and roadside mines. The double-V hull design on the new Styker is a proven technology similar to that found on mine-resistant, ambush-protected, or MRAP, vehicles currently being used in Afghanistan.

By posing as the real customer or member, fraudsters can change account details, make purchases, withdraw funds, and even leverage the stolen information to access other accounts. continue reading »
The government’s COVID-19 task force has updated its requirements for transportation during the transitional phase to the so-called “new normal”, requiring domestic travelers to carry a medical document certifying they are free of COVID-19 valid for 14 days.The regulation, stipulated in Circular No. 9/2020, was issued by task force chief Doni Monardo on Friday, updating the previous Circular No. 7/2020 on the same subject issued on June 6, a day after the capital enacted the transitional phase.“Every individual traveling by land, sea or air transportation must present a negative PCR [polymerase chain reaction] or rapid test result certificate that is valid for 14 days from departure,” the updated regulation says. This is different from the previous regulation, which required a PCR test certificate valid for seven days or a rapid test certificate valid for only three days.Apart from the validity period of the health document, other measures remain the same in the updated version.Here is the list of other requirements for domestic travel:- Bring personal identification cards and a medical certificate stating you are free from influenza-like illnesses, issued by a doctor from a hospital or a community health center (commuters within an agglomerated area are excluded from this requirement) – Implement health protocols (physical distancing, wearing a mask, bringing hand sanitizer)- Download and activate the Peduli Lindungi application on Appstore or PlaystoreMeanwhile, international travelers wishing to enter Indonesia are required to:- Conduct a PCR test at the time of arrival, unless they already carry a test certificate from the country of departure.- The above provision does not apply at cross-border posts (PLBN), which do not have PCR equipment, but international travelers arriving in the posts are required to undergo a rapid test and carry an influenza-like illness-free certificate.- While waiting for their PCR test results, international travelers must undergo quarantine in a location specified by the government, or undergo self-quarantine at a hotel or other place certified by the Health Ministry.- International travelers are also required to download and activate the Peduli Lindungi application on Appstore or Playstore.Travelers testing positive for the coronavirus must immediately isolate themselves.The government is working closely with regional administrations, health authorities, public transportation managements and security personnel to monitor traveling activities.Topics :
The Dutch Pensions Federation has argued against the position of supervisor De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB) that pension funds should adhere only to the principle of ‘one man, one vote’ on their boards. In the DNB’s opinion, the idea that a vote that carries proportionally more weight than other stakeholders’ seats could come at the expense of a balanced assessment of interests and have a negative impact on the dynamics within a board.It said it could also have an impact on the time available for board activities, as well as on the suitability of board members.The supervisor said new governance legislation should not allow weighted votes on a scheme’s board. “The purpose of equal representation is that not one of the parties on a board has a decisive role in decision making,” it said, adding that an exception might be allowed in the case of a vacancy. However, the Pensions Federation claimed that DNB’s view was legally unsustainable and undesirable, as it would hinder a board’s ability to govern effectively and efficiently.The lobbying organisation referred to the Code for Pension Funds, as well as the Pensions Act, which would allow for an exception of the ’one man, one vote’ principle, it said, adding that a number of schemes already worked with such an approach. “Pensions funds should, of course, explain their choice, and also make clear how they have taken a balanced assessment of interests into account,” the federation said. In its opinion, a well-functioning board does not have a fixed scale, and the quality of the board depends on its members.The Pensions Federation said it wanted to resolve the issue with the DNB before 1 July, when all pension funds must comply with new governance legislation.Roos Kuip, the federation’s spokeswoman, said the lobbying organisation did not know the number of schemes that already applied a weighted vote, but added that several pension funds had already pledged their support for the federation’s initiative.

Mathieu Flamini believes Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has done Arsenal a “good favour” in selling Petr Cech to the Gunners. Press Association He is now likely to start at Wembley on Sunday when his new club Arsenal meet Mourinho’s Premier League champions in the Community Shield. The traditional curtain-raiser will give Arsene Wenger a chance to measure his current Arsenal side against the league’s yard-stick and Flamini feels the acquisition of Cech is something the club must make use of. “I was surprised by Mourinho because he really doesn’t do that,” Flamini was quoted as saying in several national newspapers. “He (Mourinho) is a competitor and usually doesn’t like to sell any players to his rivals, but it’s a good favour for us and now we have to take advantage. “It’s a top signing. That’s why we have been lucky on this one.” Having added the attacking talents of Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Danny Welbeck in recent summers, Wenger has now strengthened at the other end of the pitch – and France international Flamini reckons the advantages of having Cech on board stretch beyond his goalkeeping abilities. “It’s very important. Not only for his quality but also for his character,” added Flamini. “When you play at the top level, the leaders on the pitch make the difference. “Not only when things go well but especially when things go bad. So, for us, Petr Cech is a top signing. “He is someone with character, someone with a winning mentality.” The 33-year-old goalkeeper ended a long association with Chelsea to move across London to the Emirates Stadium earlier in the summer. Having lost his position as first-choice stopper to Thibaut Courtois, Cech was allowed to leave Stamford Bridge even though Mourinho was keen to keep hold of the Czech Republic international.
