Interagency Exercise Hones Rescue Operations

first_imgBy Dialogo October 14, 2011 The largest federal interagency exercise for personnel rescue and recovery began at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, and continues through October 21 with joint, coalition, interagency and international participants, and focuses on saving lives. Colombia is also taking part. Chile, El Salvador, Peru, and Uruguay, among other countries, are observing the exercise this year. Brett Hartnett, a former Air Force combat rescue helicopter pilot who founded and manages the exercise, attributed its continued success to networking, partnerships and the “whole of government” approach to saving lives. Hartnett noted the value of close, regular exercises with countries such as Colombia, which returned this year for its fourth Angel Thunder. “We know they’re good, we know who to contact, and we’re used to working with them,” he said. The annual Angel Thunder exercise, sponsored by the Air Force’s Air Combat Command, is using an earthquake scenario to prepare participants for rescue and recovery missions, officials said. This year’s exercise involves 1,400 people from U.S. Southern Command, U.S. Africa Command and the Joint Personnel Recovery Agency, officials said. Also taking part are key U.S. agencies such as the State Department, Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Drug Enforcement Agency, and U.S. Agency for International Development. Local participants in the network also contribute to the exercise’s success, Hartnett said. This year, two hospitals, three sheriff’s offices, a fire department and three universities are participating. The goal of Angel Thunder is simple: “The mission comes down to saving lives,” Hartnett said.last_img read more

Digital future of banking requires new leadership model

first_imgThe banking industry is trying to respond to an increasingly turbulent business environment, where legacy leadership and existing cultures are being challenged. Not only do leaders need to articulate a vision for a future of increasing customer expectations, greater competition and advancing technology, but also provide the resources to become digital technology organizations.Some people argue that completely new leadership skills will be required to survive in the digital age. Others believe that leaders should go back to the essentials established decades ago, not letting change distract or disrupt an organization on a managerial level.A joint research project between MIT Sloan Management Review and Deloitte, found that a blend of both perspectives may be required. In other words, while core leadership skills will stay the same, digital disruption will require new skills to be added to the ‘leadership handbook’.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka celebrates scoring at Wolves Though Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were seen as tough opponents with top-four ambitions, the Gunners were in a confident mood having recorded three wins on the bounce in all competitions. Saka ensured the streak continued with his beautiful volley from a Kieran Tierney pass two minutes prior to the half-time break. Alexandre Lacazette then sealed the win his strike off the bench in the 86th minute to keep Arsenal’s slim top-four hopes alive. It caps off an exciting week for Saka who signed a contract extension at the Emirates Stadium until 2024. “To a certain extent today wasn’t what we usually associate with Arsenal, they were dogged, really good defensively and they’ve got that little bit of quality as well when Lacazette comes on,” Redknapp said on Sky Sports as per the Express. “I’m so pleased for that young man, Saka. He’s a joy to watch. He’s loving the Premier League. New contract. As he said, what a week for him. It’s a really good finish. “Aubameyang is heavily involved, he knows exactly where he is on the pitch, plays it out wide and you just see again at the back post, Saka drops his shoulder [to get into space]. “He has a swing at it, it’s not necessarily conventionally the best volley you’ll ever see but it’s a really good one, and it works for him.center_img “He guides it away from the keeper, it’s a nice strike. It’s just one of those but it’s good technique.” Former Arsenal defender Ashley Cole, also speaking on Sky Sports, said Saka feels very much at home now that he’s tied to the club for the foreseeable future. “Watching the interview, you know he [Saka] feels that Arsenal is his home,” Cole stated. “He’s a young kid. The group they’ve got around him, with extra young players, is making him feel very welcome and at home. “I think Arsenal fans are buzzing that he’s signed and he definitely looks one for the future, for sure.” Saka, who was clearly thrilled by the goal, asserted on the need to be humble as he keeps learning. The 18-year-old now has four goals and 10 assists in 35 competitive outings. “It has been such a great week, signing my contract and then getting my first Premier League goal. And it wasn’t a bad goal either so I’m very happy,” he told the BBC. read also:Saka’s first Premier League goal keeps Arsenal in Euro race “I have to stay humble and keep my feet on the ground to keep learning. It’s important for us to have experience and world-class players around to advise us. It was tough for us today but we gave our all and that is what got us over the line.” Saka will be hoping to impress again when Arsenal host Leicester City at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.
