Week seven of the 2021 Adequan® Global Dressage Festival (AGDF) began at Equestrian Village at the Palm Beach International Equestrian Center (PBIEC) in Wellington, FL, on Thursday, February 25, with top placings for the USA’s Steffen Peters in the FEI Grand Prix for Freestyle CDI5*, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors, and Sabine Schut-Kery with Sanceo in the FEI Grand Prix for Special CDI5*, presented by Palm Beach Equine Clinic. The classes started out the five-star week, which continues through Sunday, February 28.Peters and the 2008 KWPN gelding by Spielberg, owned by Akiko Yamazaki and Four Winds Farm, kicked off their week on a high note, besting the FEI Grand Prix for Freestyle CDI5*, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors with a score of 77.109%.“After the test he felt like he had another two tests in there,” began Peters. “This is actually the right weather for him, where I can ride him a little bit and he settles down a bit more. That warm weather is what we are going to face in Tokyo, maybe even quite a bit hotter than this, and Mopsie seems to be ready for it. He’s been very consistently in the 76, 77 percentile, and that’s super exciting that I can ask for a bit more. Today he had a very clean test with a good, relaxed walk, so I’m extremely happy.”Peters and the gelding have won every class they have competed in this season, and Peters is moving into tomorrow’s freestyle with hopefulness. “I think it’s always fun to support the organizers in the five-star freestyle,” he explained. “If we do well then, it’s nice to give back to our people, and help to pay the bills a little! We’re really looking forward to it. The freestyle is one of my favorite tests to ride, though sometimes it’s not Mopsie’s, but the night atmosphere is still something he needs to get used to.”The pair’s final AGDF competition will be next week during AGDF 8 at the Palm Beach Dressage Derby, and then Peters’ plans are tentative based on the status of the global pandemic and the state of the world.He concluded, “I’ve always believed that our federation makes very good decisions for us. Since Europe is still on lockdown at the moment, it doesn’t really make sense to go there. I will just wait for the input from the US [Equestrian] Federation, and I know they will make the right decision. I’m looking forward to doing the Palm Beach Derby here next week, and Mopsie will get a nice break for March, and then in April we will start to pick it up again.”Second place honors in the FEI Grand Prix for Freestyle CDI5*, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors went to Katherine Bateson Chandler (USA) and Alcazar, Jane Forbes Clark’s 2005 KWPN gelding by Contango, earning a score of 69.913%.“I was really happy with my horse today,” said Bateson Chandler. “He does struggle with tension at times and I’d prefer him to be a little bit more relaxed, but I need some of that positive tension, so there’s always a fine line. I was happy with how it worked out in there.”Bateson Chandler noted the gelding’s honesty this season, coming into his sixteenth year and getting more comfortable with the competition. “This whole season he’s been as honest as he’s ever been in his career,” she stated. “When that happens you really realize that it takes years for these horses to mature to this level. I still had one mistake in the one [tempis], which was really frustrating because I’ve had those the last three tests, but overall his general rideability was good. I’m super happy with his attitude. It’s not so easy in this weather because it’s hot and he’s a big black horse, but he’s been down this centerline a lot so I think he’ll be very excited to move on, and hopefully we’ll get a season elsewhere. In the meantime, this is a fantastic show and we’re lucky to be able to have it.”Third place went to the USA’s Guenter Seidel on Equirelle, Leatherdale Farms and Louise Leatherdale’s 2009 KWPN mare by Florett AS, with a 69.304%. Seidel said, “Today we had a lot of mistakes, but they were more my mistakes than hers. This is her fourth show in a row and it’s getting a little better, but we are just chipping away at it and hopefully we will work our way up with the score.”The pair has never ridden a freestyle under the lights, but Seidel explained that at this stage in his young mare’s career, the miles are important regardless of the atmosphere. He concluded, “She hasn’t shown under the lights yet, so we’ll see. She’s already such a hot horse, so I don’t know if it will be a plus for me! It’s the show atmosphere itself, so I think you just have to do it and keep going. It doesn’t matter if it’s large or small; it’s the same for the horse when they are learning.”Results FEI Grand Prix for Freestyle CDI5*, presented by CaptiveOne Advisors:1.

Those classes, along with a national class last week at AGDF, helped prepare the pair for their biggest competition in a year.“Sanceo was really great,” noted Schut-Kery. “Any errors made today were rider errors, and I think I lost him in the zigzag. However, he felt great in the first part of the test and then recovered quite well [from those rider errors]. I have no complaints, and I feel like we are getting to the point where we can see where we want to push more, and where we need to finesse things.”Schut-Kery and the gelding will compete in the FEI Grand Prix Special CDI5*, presented by Palm Beach Equine Clinic on Saturday, and Schut-Kery plans to continue to perfect the duo’s performance for the remainder of the competition, at which she is thrilled to be competing.She exclaimed, “Having this five star is amazing. When I look around, a lot of the places are closed down all over the world. We are so fortunate. I think everybody agrees that we would follow any protocol, just to be able to keep going. Speaking for myself, I have a horse that’s 15 years old. It’s not like he’s eight or 10, and one year doesn’t matter. For me, it’s very special to be here and be invited to this competition, to the five star, and that there is that caliber of show. Thank you to everyone that puts this on and supports it.”The 52-year-old is currently second on the USA Dressage Shortlist behind Peters and hopes to remain there through the spring and summer. “I’m planning to do one more show in March,” she said, “though I haven’t decided yet which one. After that we will hopefully go home for a little break and make it onto the [updated] short list. It would be great to go to Europe, but obviously nobody knows right now.”Second place in the FEI Grand Prix for Special CDI5*, presented by Palm Beach Equine Clinic went to another current short list pair, Adrienne Lyle (USA) on Harmony’s Duval, Duval Partners LLC’s 2008 KWPN gelding by Rosseau, with a 72.587%.“We were very honored to get an invitation to the five star and want to thank all of the sponsors for putting on this amazing show,” Lyle began. “I chose the Grand Prix Special with Duval because that is our main focus with him right now. My goal is to try to qualify for the short list, so we are focusing on the Special. He felt really good in the warmup, and I’m really happy with the work we are getting out of him. He’s kind of a funny horse; he went in there and his brain went mach 90 and we lost each other a little bit for the first half of the test, but that can happen and I can’t complain. The work is going well, and he is feeling good at home. We are going to alter the warmup a bit for the special to see if we can keep his nerves under control, and we’ll see how it goes.”Third place honors were presented to Charlotte Jorst (USA) on Kastel’s Nintendo, Kastel Denmark’s 2003 KWPN stallion by Negro, with 72.326%, who is also sitting on the short list behind Schut-Kery and Lyle.“Nintendo was just incredible as usual,” stated Jorst. “He just comes out every single day, and he must be the most honest horse I the universe. He always tries his best, and he did again today. I’ve been working on getting him ‘through.’ I’m so grateful to have a horse to ride in a five star. That has always been such a huge dream, and now it’s coming to fruition. I got a little teary-eyed in the barn because it’s so emotional for me to be able to continue to ride. I learned to ride the grand prix with this horse, and now he’s allowing me to continue to ride. I’m also trying to get on the short list. That’s my dream and my goal, so if he allows me to get there, it would be amazing.”Earlier in the day, Germany’s Frederic Wandres topped the leaderboard in the FEI Prix St. Georges CDI3*, presented by Donato Farms piloting Hof Kasselmann’s 2013 Hanoverian gelding by Hochadel, Harrods 3, to a final score of 74.382%. Second place went to Michael Klimke (GER) and Domino 957, Uwe Kappel’s 2012 Westphalian mare by Den Haag 12, with a 70.765%.

In May, a Defense Acquisition Board approved full-rate production of the SM-6 missile.“SM-6 combines the best of our SM-2, SM-3 and AMRAAM missiles, providing an enhanced anti-air warfare and over-the-horizon capability at a reduced cost,” said Mike Campisi, Raytheon Missile Systems’ senior director of Standard Missile-1, -2, and -6 programs. “We have delivered more than 50 missiles ahead of schedule and under cost, and we remain on track to reach initial operating capability in 2013.”SM-6 delivers a proven over-the-horizon air defense capability by leveraging the time-tested advantages of the Standard Missile’s airframe and propulsion.The SM-6 uses both active and semiactive guidance modes and advanced fuzing techniques.It incorporates the advanced signal processing and guidance control capabilities from Raytheon’s Advanced Medium-Range Air-to-Air Missile.[mappress]Press Release, August 26, 2013; Image: Raytheon Equipment & technology US Navy’s SM-6 Interceptors Engage Over-the-Horizon Targets at Sea View post tag: usa View post tag: Raytheon View post tag: Missile

Read Full Story Harvard University recently announced a new gift from India’s Vijay Shekhar Sharma, which will support the activities and research performed by the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute (LMSAI).By enabling scholars from South Asia to work in a cross-disciplinary fashion with faculty, researchers, and students across Harvard on critical questions and issues related to the region, Sharma’s gift will significantly enhance the goals of the Institute to deepen the teaching and research on significant cultural and global issues related to South Asia.“Recent months have confirmed that the most pressing societal challenges are global in nature,” said University Provost Alan Garber. “We are deeply grateful to Vijay Shekhar Sharma. Through his generosity, he has affirmed our shared commitment to advancing cross-disciplinary research and learning in our interconnected world. His vision for a more collaborative future has never been timelier. We are proud to partner with him.”“Further expanding Harvard’s work and partnerships in India is a major priority for the University,” said Vice Provost for International Affairs Mark Elliott. “This fund, which will provide leading South Asian scholars in all fields with new opportunities to pursue their research at Harvard, will bring benefits to them and their home institutions as well as to the Harvard community. In this way, this new program will do much to strengthen and broaden the kinds of academic connections we depend upon to help deepen our engagement with South Asian partners and to advance our academic mission globally.”Sharma is the chairman and CEO of One97 Communications and its consumer brand, Paytm. He has played a critical role in developing the mobile payments and commerce ecosystem in India. A strong believer in the power of technology to uplift the underserved, Sharma founded Paytm in 2010 and continues to oversee the company’s key strategic efforts.“I believe that good education can change an individual’s life in the most profound ways. My father, who was a teacher, believed that the world can be positively changed through education. His teachings are my inspiration to make this contribution to Harvard University. Harvard’s integrity, diversity, and commitment to excellence are exemplary. I hope this gift will help future leaders attain the global vision that would help in transforming the lives of millions for the better in India and beyond,” said Sharma.Tarun Khanna, director of the Lakshmi Mittal and Family South Asia Institute and Jorge Paulo Lemann Professor at the Harvard Business School, highlighted the importance of creating a robust platform for knowledge-sharing, connecting those who may not otherwise have had the chance to interact.“We continue to increase the number of interdisciplinary programs and fellowships offered at the Mittal Institute, welcoming scholars of South Asia to share their research and partner with Harvard’s faculty and students. Thanks to Vijay’s generosity, we move closer to a critical mass of diverse perspectives and ideas at the Institute that deepen the world’s understanding of South Asia, from all disciplines and angles,” he said.
Navy, Army and Air Force ROTC cadets and midshipmen began their 24-hour vigil at the Clarke Memorial Fountain on North Quad yesterday, honoring the legacy of American veterans of war on Veterans Day.Senior and Midshipman First Class Lizzie Terino said the vigil began Monday at 4:30 p.m. and will last until 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday.“To honor the legacy of all those who have served in those wars, especially the Notre Dame grads, we stand a vigil shift for 24 hours,” she said. “After the conclusion of our vigil, we’ll have a ceremony with all three ROTC units and a guest speaker — just to talk about what people have done before us and the honor and privilege of serving.” Emily McConville | The Observer Members of the Navy ROTC participate in the Pass and Review on South Quad on April 9. ROTC members will participate in a 24-hour vigil at the Clarke Memorial Fountain for Veterans Day.Senior and battalion commander for Army ROTC Michael Loftus said the cadets and midshipmen take shifts throughout the 24-hour vigil. Each shift has four slots, one to be filled by a member from each of the three services and one that can be filled by a member from any of the services, he said.“We organize by half-hours,” Loftus said. “Sometimes people will take two shifts in a row or even longer, but each shift is 30 minutes long.”Terino said the vigil takes place at the Clarke Memorial Fountain because the fountain is dedicated to veterans.“The Clarke Memorial Fountain is a war memorial fountain; it’s not just something we run through on game weekends,” she said. “Each of the four sides is dedicated to veterans, of World War II, Korea, Vietnam and those who have served in peace times.”As a senior, Terino said her experience participating in the vigil for the past three years varied depending on what shift she took.“When you’re doing it in the afternoon or during the day, a lot of people come by and take pictures,” she said. “So you are thinking about what it means for other people that you’re serving. … When you do it at night and it’s dark and peaceful and there’s really no one around, you are sort of reflecting on why you’re doing it. You start thinking about all the stories you’ve heard about the people who have done it before you.“So the time of day really dictates your mood.”Loftus said he has always taken shifts in the middle of the night.“There’s definitely a lot of time of reflection, if you are prone to do that,” Loftus said. “Most people like it and think it’s a cool experience, even when it’s snowing or raining.”Terino said participating in the vigil on Veterans Day enables her to commend her family members’ military service, as well as others who have made sacrifices for freedom.“My father, grandfather and uncle were in the Air Force; my grandfather did two tours in Vietnam,” she said. “Every year it’s an incredible opportunity, especially studying history here at Notre Dame and taking history classes. I went to the World War II museum over fall break, and [heard] the stories of people and what they’ve gone through, and situations that I can’t even fathom.“It’s an incredible opportunity to take the time out of our busy schedules, and to really think about why we have the freedom to be this busy, to remember what others have gone through for that. …We are here at school, and I feel like we always get wrapped up in our schedules, so it’s always nice to take the time to honor the people who have served and allowed us this freedom to do what we do.”Terino said the vigil previews the support she looks forward to gaining when she joins the Navy.“Any time you put the uniform on, you are representing everybody in Navy and what they are doing,” she said. “A lot of people will start thanking you for your service, which as ROTC students is hard to wrap our heads around because we haven’t felt like we’ve done a whole lot yet, but it’s inspiring to get that kind of support and to know that two or three years down the road, when we are giving that service, when we are on ships or deployed, that there are people back at home who recognize that we are sacrificing time with our family or other things to have that opportunity to serve our country.”Loftus said his participation in the vigil commemorates the service of his grandfathers as well as the service of his friends from the University program and from his home.“One of my grandfathers, I never met,” Loftus said. “He died before I was born, so it’s nice to be honoring him and there are guys who were fellow cadets a couple years ago, who are now deployed or overseas.”Meadow Jackson, sophomore and ROTC midshipman, said the vigil is a unique opportunity to honor those who have served.“Standing vigil in front of the war memorial reminds me why I came to Notre Dame,” she said. “To serve my God, my country and my family and friends. My father is a veteran, so today is a special day for me.”Jackson said although Veteran’s Day commemorates soldiers past, it transcends American generations.“I’m carrying on a tradition way more important than one individual,” Jackson said. “We do this for generations past present and future — so no one will forget the sacrifices made by so many so that we could be free.” Tags: 24-hour vigil, Clarke Memorial Fountain, commemoration, Country, God, Korea, Midshipmen, Notre Dame, ROTC, tradition, Veterans Day, Vietnam, World War II

Tullow has delivered the fast track version of the recently acquired 3D seismic dataset over the Walton-Morant licence offshore Jamaica. According to Tullow’s licence partner United Oil & Gas (UOG), the high-grade Colibri target, which had previously been mapped on 2D seismic, has been clearly identified on the fast track version of the 3D seismic dataset.This follows the completion of a 2,250 square kilometer 3D seismic acquisition survey on the licence. United holds a 20% equity interest in the 32,065 sq km Licence, with the remainder held by Tullow.The 3D seismic survey, which is the first to have been acquired in Jamaica, forms part of a programme focused on de-risking Cretaceous and Tertiary aged clastic and carbonate reservoir targets that have been mapped by Tullow on 2D seismic data. Among these is Colibri, which has been estimated from 2D data to hold gross mean-case prospective resources of over 200mmbbls. The technical case for Colibri has been further strengthened by the recent identification of an active thermogenically derived offshore oil seep to the south of the structure.Initial opinion is that the fast track 3D seismic data is of excellent quality with the Colibri structure clearly visible on the newly acquired dataset, United said.Processing and interpretation work is now underway.United Oil & Gas Plc CEO, Brian Larkin, said: “The work programme to de-risk the 200mmbbl Colibri target on Walton-Morant continues to proceed on schedule and under budget. Being able to clearly identify Colibri on the 3D seismic at such an early stage is highly encouraging and with this in mind, we are looking forward to the processing and interpretation work being completed.”
By Dave Panske SEYMOUR, Wis. (Aug. 24) – The fourth time was a charm Sunday night at Seymour Speedway for Beau Handschke.Handschke has led the last three Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod features entering the final lap, only to end up second. He stayed in front this time for his first career win in the division.Handschke had opened a big lead before Rod Solem moved into the runner-up spot after a battle with Kevin Bethke and point leader Jeremy Cota. Solem slowly started to close the gap on the leader and with three laps to go was in striking distance. Handsche moved from the outside line to the low groove to close off Solem’s line. Solem tried to make it there but Handschke would not be denied. Solem was second with Cota taking third. Bethke, Colten Van Hierden and Bruce Belland rounded out the top six.Benji LaCrosse held off Mike Wedelstadt to collect his second straight Budweiser IMCA Modified feature flag. Kyle Frederick collected his second Coors Light IMCA Stock Car feature win of the season going away.
