DONT SPLIT THE UKIP VOTE - Vote for Change, Believe in Britain, VOTE UKIP


Tory Wars: Bow Group Split Over UKIP Endorsement
by WikiGuido

The oldest Tory think tank has descended into open warfare after its chairman said Conservative supporters should vote UKIP where the Tories can't win. Earlier today Ben Harris-Quinney told the Telegraph:

bsd.firetrench.com

ftd.firetrench.com

“Our preference at this election is a Conservative majority, but few in the Conservative Party will acknowledge the reality that this is now very unlikely to happen... We recognise the need to keep Ed Miliband out of Number 10, and the best way to do this is for Conservative voters to lend their votes to Ukip, who are best placed to beat Labour in many areas.”

He has a point...

This evening at CCHQ's behest four patrons of the Bow Group have kicked back at Harris-Quinney. Michael Heseltine, Michael Howard, Norman Lamont and Nirj Deva MEP said in a punchy statement:

"As Patrons of the Bow Group we believe that this country's best interests are served by voting Conservative in all situations. Ben Harris-Quinney does not speak for us or represent our views."

4th Place for Drumfire in St Barths Bucket Regatta

af21f31a-ef7b-4fa0-b575-13f03d84d855

The 2015 St Barths Bucket Regatta has come to a finish and after three days of exciting racing the results are now in. With the 35 yacht entries divided across four classes, racing was close and proved for some memorable viewing for spectators and competitors alike.
Built by Claasen Shipyards in 2004, 24m Drumfire was up against ten other competitors in the most popular class: Les Mademoiselles des Mers. Proving her mettle on the regatta scene, she more than held her own and performed consistently throughout the event.

Having achieved fifth place on day one and third place on day two she closed the regatta’s final race, the ‘Wrong Way Round’ course, with a very respectable fifth place securing her fourth position overall within the class. Congratulations to the owner and crew of Drumfire and to all involved in the Bucket for making the event such a success.

The NACA Spirit Captured, 1945

7584798180 5155dd9235 o

 

In this 1945 photo, test pilots (from left) Mel Gough, Herb Hoover, Jack Reeder, Steve Cavallo and Bill Gray stand in front of a P-47 Thunderbolt. The photo was taken at the then-named Langley Memorial Aeronautical Laboratory, which was a research facility for the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, or the NACA.

The NACA was the main institutional basis for creating NASA in 1958.

On March 3, 1915 – one hundred years ago -- the U.S. Congress established the NACA in order "to supervise and direct the scientific study of the problems of flight with a view to their practical solution."

From humble beginnings with a $5000 budget, no paid staff and no facilities, the NACA won the Collier trophy five times. Its researchers made critical contributions to victory in World War II, spawned a world-leading civil aviation manufacturing industry, propelled supersonic flight, supported national security during the Cold War, and laid the foundation for modern air travel and the space age.

NASA’S Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) spacecraft has spied a new crater on the lunar surface; one made from the impact of NASA’s Lunar Atmosphere and Dust Environment Explorer (LADEE) mission.

“The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Camera (LROC) team recently developed a new computer tool to search Narrow Angle Camera (NAC) before and after image pairs for new craters, the LADEE impact event provided a fun test, said Mark Robinson, LROC principal investigator from Arizona State University in Tempe. “As it turns there were several small surface changes found in the predicted area of the impact, the biggest and most distinctive was within 968 feet (295 meters) of the spot estimated by the LADEE operations team. What fun!”

The LADEE mission ended on April 18, 2014, with the spacecraft’s planned impact into the eastern rim of Sundman V crater on the far side of the moon.

LADEE's engines fired April 11, 2014, to perform a final orbital maintenance maneuver and adjust to guarantee it would impact on the farside of the moon and away from the Apollo landing sites. Over a seven-day period, LADEE's orbit decreased and the spacecraft orbited very low to the surface and close to the walls of lunar craters and mountain ridges to give the team a chance to collect valuable science data. Finally, LADEE impacted the eastern rim of Sundman V crater on April 18. The impact site is about half a mile (780 meters) from the crater rim with an altitude of about 8,497 feet (2,590 meters) and was only about two tenths of a mile (300 meters) north of the location mission controllers predicted based on tracking data.

The impact crater is small, less than ten feet (three meters) in diameter, barely resolvable by the LROC NAC. The crater is small because the spacecraft -- compared to most celestial impacts -- was not traveling very fast, approximately 3,800 miles per hour (1,699 meters per second) and had a low mass and a low density. The size of the impact crater made it hard to identify among the myriad of small fresh craters on the lunar surface. Images acquired of the impact region before the impact, were compared with images obtained after the impact to identify the crater.

Since the NAC images are so large (250 mega-pixels) and the new crater is so small, the LROC team co-registered the before and after images (called a temporal pair) and then divided the before image by the after image. By doing this, changes to the surface become evident.

The ejecta from the impact forms a triangular pattern primarily downrange to the west, extending about 656-984 feet (200-300 meters) from the impact site. There is also a small triangular area of ejecta up range but it extends only about 66-98 feet (20-30 meters). The ejecta pattern is oriented northwest, consistent with the direction the spacecraft was traveling when it impacted the surface.

"I'm happy that the LROC team was able to confirm the LADEE impact point," said Butler Hine, LADEE project manager at Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California. "It really helps the LADEE team to get closure and know exactly where the product of their hard work wound up."

LADEE launched Sept. 6, 2013 from Pad 0B at the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, at NASA's Wallops Flight Facility, Wallops Island, Virginia. LADEE gathered detailed information about the structure and composition of the thin lunar atmosphere and determining whether dust is being lofted into the lunar sky.

LRO launched September 18, 2009. LRO continues to bring the world astounding views of the lunar surface and a sizable collection of lunar data for research.

LRO recently received a second two-year extended mission. Under the extended mission, LRO will study the seasonal volatile cycle; determine how many small meteorites are currently hitting the moon and their effects; characterize the structure of the lunar regolith; investigate the moon’s interaction with the space environment; and reveal more about the lunar interior using observations of the moon’s surface.

“With LRO, NASA will study our nearest celestial neighbor for at least two more years,” said John Keller, LRO project scientist from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland. “LRO continues to increase our understanding of the moon and its environment.”

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, manages the LRO mission. NASA's Ames Research Center in Moffett Field, California, designed, built, tested and managed operations for the LADEE mission.

Calls Increase for Resignation of Odious Labour MEP

RichardHowitt-BzZcTGpCUAABfal

As the calls for Richard Howitt, the odious Labour MEP and serial liar, to resign increase, Labour Party Headquarters just shrug their shoulders - after all he is just following Labour Party policy to make vile slanders and libels against Ukip

bsd.firetrench.com

brn.firetrench.com

ftd.firetrench.com

Richard Howitt has led a very undistinguished political life and proved a very poor MEP, so maybe he just wanted to be noticed by his Party and fast tracked for a Westminster seat and a ministerial post.

From the start of 2014 a seriously rattled Labour Party has been increasingly desperate in its attempts to smear Ukip and halt the major gains Nigel Farage has been making into what Labour regards as its proprietary territories.

Official Labour leaflets have contained claims that the Labour Party knows to be fraudulent against Ukip.

Labour will not sack the vile MEP Howitt because he is only following Labour Party policies intended to divert attention from their own lack of credible policies and their continuing support for paedophiles.

As Labour won't sack this low-life Howitt, and it is exceedingly unlikely he will resign as an MEP, perhaps it is time for the advertising watchdog to take up the case.

It is wrong that a main stream political Party should, as standard policy deliberately, circulate lies in the way that the Labour Party is doing. Given their inability to follow any norms of civilized society, perhaps they should be banned from making any Party Political Broadcasts for the next two years.

Boeing Launches Pilot Development Program at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh

New global program to train pilots “from street to right seat”
Leverages Boeing Flight Services and Jeppesen training expertise and assets

OSHKOSH, Wisconsin, July 30, 2014 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced today a comprehensive global training solution that provides all the training a pilot needs, from basic theory through qualification as a commercial jet first officer, the “right seat” in the flight deck.

adn.firetrench.com

 

ftd.firetrench.com

Leveraging the proven experience of Boeing and Jeppesen, the Boeing Pilot Development Program is designed to provide the essential training an airline needs to help meet the rising demand for qualified pilots. The program takes cadet pilots through initial screening, ab initio (basic classroom and flight instruction), jet bridge and type rating training at Boeing training facilities around the world to ensure an efficient, consistent and effective pipeline for airlines to secure qualified first officers.

“Approximately 533,000 new commercial airline pilots are needed to support the global fleet over the next 20 years,” said David Wright, director, Boeing Pilot Development Program today at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh. “Boeing has been talking about this demand for years—the Pilot Development Program is our answer, and an investment in the future of aviation personnel.”

Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen provides initial screening and ab initio training through its robust training network, including a competence evaluation in Aviation English, foundational aviation knowledge and migration from practical ground and flight training to an Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL). Boeing and Jeppesen developed a jet-bridge course, providing high-performance jet theory, with fixed- and full-motion simulation—all from an airline operations perspective.

“The Boeing Pilot Development Program brings the experience and knowledge associated with two leaders in aviation, Boeing and Jeppesen, to provide a comprehensive program designed to train operationally ready pilots,” said Wright. “But no single company can close the gap in demand. This is an industry issue, and can only be solved by innovative, industry-wide solutions.”

The 2014 Boeing Pilot & Technician Outlook—a respected industry forecast of aviation personnel required to meet the industry’s demand over the next 20 years—projects a global need for 533,000 new commercial airline pilots and 584,000 new maintenance technicians by 2033. That equates to a need for nearly 27,000 new commercial airline pilots and 29,000 new maintenance technicians globally each year.

The Slide into WWIII

12

The slide into World War Three has begun. Not what Putin wanted, but a very real possibility. He won't be the first dictator to get what he deserves rather than what he wanted.

Putin rightly decided that there was a serious lack of leadership in the West and assumed that now was the time to start pushing hard to recreate a fascist Soviet Union, absorbing all the states that broke free when the old Soviet Union collapsed.

He could see Britain without a real Government as the LibCon/LibDem coalition began to unwind in the approach to the 1915 General Election. He was greatly encouraged by Ed Milliband voting against any action to protect Syrians from Putin's friend and client Assad.

He saw the laughable EUSSR as a paper tiger with a clown as President and a useless former quango queen as Lord High Eurocrat for Foreign Affairs and Direct Action.

Crucially, he recognized just how useless Hussein Obama was and how the US was busy scrapping its military to fund the seriously flawed ObamaCare program that is so flawed that US legislators took early steps to exempt themselves from its provisions.

What he overlooked is that a cornered rat can be very dangerous and the global communications now available to virtually every citizen in the world makes it very difficult to use the old dictator's trick of claiming to be 'protecting' his nationals and then attempting to destabilize the target country and force it to fight back. The Russian position if as laughable as the potential protectors of Ukraine are incompetent clowns.

As information continues to come out of the Russian Occupation Zone in Crimea, it appears that the Ukraine is fighting back in a very civilized way. Ukraine soldiers are marching on the Russians without weapons. This is brave and may prove tragic in the short term but dramatically increase pressures on Putin. There are emerging stories that unarmed Ukraine civilians have been planning to create unarmed protective rings around the besieged Ukraine military installations in the Crimea and that the Russians are trying to turn of power and water to the besieged sites. This may lead on to further Russian brutality and expose the Russian actions for what they are even to the most obtuse.

Paralympians are placed in a very difficult position because their natural desire to compete after long months of training weigh against the natural human desire to avoid any action that could give even the smallest comfort to Putin's fascists. Banning Officials from travel to the Paralympics is not adequate and a call should go to athletes to appeal to their sense of humanity and honour, while plans to restage the Paralympics in a democratic country should receive priority.

The economic sanctions come in two parts. The markets reacted very quickly, wiping billions off the value of Russian stocks and its currency value. The more damaging actions will take longer and for Russians offer the further danger that the sanctions are like a super tanker - they take a while to get started, but then prove very difficult to stop. Even if Putin decided to withdraw completely from the Ukraine, including the removal of the Black Sea fleet from the Crimean bases, the Russian economy will continue to be hit for months to come as legal sanctions take time to disengage and the finance community takes time to recover any confidence in Russian markets.

The longest term damage to the Russian economy could prove to be to its gas and oil production. Europe has received a wakeup call and wise politicians, and there are some still, will look to ways of dramatically reducing dependence on Russian oil and gas, steps that should have been taken a long time ago but were frustrated by climate fraudsters. With the decline of North Sea oil and gas, fracking offers Britain a very real prospect of regaining control of its energy needs.

In the short to medium term the very real danger is now presented as NATO reviews the situation. Poland has called for an emergency meeting and the NATO treaty calls on all members to support any single or multiple members who are threatened. Poland and the other former western slave states of the USSR, who have already joined NATO, fully understand General Putin and his mafia friends. They know that Russian annexation of the Ukraine or any part of it precedes threats directly to them. There is a very real possibility that NATO will go to full war alert in response to the Russian mobilization. If Russian continues to expand out of the Crimea, NATO could well move into the Ukraine in response to the calls already made by the Ukraine Government, but primarily to protect NATO territory from the Russians. Once that happens a minor action or error anywhere along the front or within Crimea could trigger direct military action from NATO with the very real possibility that this may escalate to nuclear exchanges.

Right now, Putin has recreated both the prelude to WWI and the prelude to WWII. By mobilizing Russian forces it makes the mobilization of NATO almost unavoidable just as the period before WWI saw miscalculation after miscalculation following on from Russian mobilization. As in the run up to WWII, German fascists, just like Putin's fascists, tried to con the world that the invasion of Poland was just to protect German ethnic groups from Polish violence. Just as Putin has been doing, Special Forces were used, together with propaganda, in an attempt to create the illusion that invasion was only to protect the innocent. In the period before 1914, and in the period before 1939, weak politicians in Britain, France and the US allowed the aggressors to think they were just too weak to present any threat to the aggressors. In the event, even the weak turned and war became a terrible result but one which was inevitable from the miscalculations of the aggressors.

The danger increases because Putin is now as much a victim of circumstances. He is moving beyond the point where he controls events. If he gives in to the international community's very reasonable demands to withdraw all Russian military forces from the Crimea and the rest of the Ukraine, he may still not be quick enough to avoid the risk of an exchange of fire and descent into all out war.

It will be very difficult for the weak politicians leading the West to avoid military escalation, even though they have no appetite for war. The military will be advising an end to delay and the demonstration of western military strength. That may now be unavoidable, but it is very important for the free world to begin long term actions to remove for generations the ability of Russia to again threaten the peace of the world. A concerted and strategic plan for sanctions will increase the probability that Putin will be overthrown and that he and any surviving conspirators will face war crimes trials. If Western politicians can only work together to a long term plan, war can be avoided but Putin and his cronies can be destroyed.
