Jurassa Peccini/Brazilian Air Force Magazine The Brazilian Armed Forces have acquired the necessary materials to support public forces during mega events, according to the general, and they are working on capabilities that can still be improved. For security reasons, he didn’t go into details. He also said that at least 1,500 Soldiers will be used in each of the 12 venues at the World Cup headquarters, up to a total of 18,000 Soldiers, “but this does not prevent the Aerial Defense Coordination team from further analyzing the need, and possibly increasing this head count,” he added. In addition, Gen. De Nardi said military airports may be used during the 2014 World Cup, but a decision is still pending regarding this matter. Marcos Ommati/Diálogo Staff Brazil recently hosted two large events: the 5th Military World Games and the Rio+20 Security Conference. Both were successful because of the high level of security provided and the joint participation by the Brazilian Armed Forces. The country will host at least four more important events in the next three years: the Confederations Cup and the World Youth Day in 2013, the 2014 FIFA World Cup, and the 2016 Summer Olympics. Once again, the Armed Forces will join the games to guarantee law and order. The responsibilities of the Brazilian Military during mega events are determined by a Defense Ministry decree. The document states that the Armed Forces will defend and control the airspace; defend the ports, rivers, and maritime areas; maintain cyberspace security; prepare and use anti-terrorism teams; detect and dispose of explosives and also assist in the activities of the contingency forces against chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear agents in all host cities and other locations where the events will occur. According to the chief of the Brazilian Armed Forces Joint Staff, Army General José Carlos de Nardi, who was interviewed by Diálogo in Brasília in late January 2013, those who work with security know the importance of the lessons learned from prior events. “The experience accumulated during the 5th Military World Games, Rio+20 and, prior to those, the 2007 Pan American Games, will help to improve the operational procedures and planning, formulation and execution of responsibilities assigned to the Armed Forces,” declared Gen. De Nardi. Transferring teams to sites within the cities will be coordinated jointly by all authorities, including the security staffs from the international sports organizations. In the case of the World Cup, for example, FIFA security agents will escort the teams with support from the Brazilian Federal Police. These transfers will be monitored by the command and control centers of the public security agencies in each city. The interoperability between all forces involved is crucial to avoid disruption. “Providing security for the event is one thing, but creating conditions for public safety so that the event takes place is another thing,” Colonel Alberto Pinheiro Neto, chief of the General Operational Joint Staff of the Military Police of Rio de Janeiro (PMERJ), told Diálogo. He explained that the investments on the PMERJ will ensure that people who “come to Rio de Janeiro to attend a game in Maracanã stadium, but also plan on attending another event in Copacabana, for example, will be safe; and if they want to visit another town, they will also be safe, because safety is not limited to the inside of Maracanã stadium only.” The Brazilian Defense Ministry said the security plan it created was designed to interfere as little as possible in the population’s daily routine. The main concern was to increase security against potential threats, such as terrorist and virtual attacks. Because of that, they have not scheduled a specific time for the Armed Forces to occupy the slums before and during the mega events. For strategic and security reasons, Gen. De Nardi preferred not to elaborate on the possible creation of a joint task force for anti-terrorism operation. “I can say that our troops have been properly trained to deal with such challenges. We also have very well-trained special forces, which makes me confident in our prevention competency in case of terrorism and response system in situations of counterterrorism.” The general stressed interoperability. He said the Brazilian Armed Forces will act in joint commands composed of participants from the three forces, allowing for a permanent integration. For instance, during the World Cup, these commands will be divided according to the host city. The Army will appoint defense coordinators for Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, São Paulo, Brasília, Fortaleza, Cuiabá, Manaus, Porto Alegre and Recife. The Navy will assign the coordinators for Salvador and Natal, while the Air Force will assign coordinators responsible for Curitiba. “In any event, the focus of the actions is to create synergy in the face of a common goal, since none of the branches of the Armed Forces can, on their own, handle all the challenges that come with the security of these events,” he concluded. By Dialogo April 01, 2013 Interoperability The military will build command and control centers in each of the headquarters for the 2014 World Cup. They, in turn, will coordinate with the command and control centers maintained by public security organizations and by the Armed Forces Joint Staff, which is responsible for coordinating the troops. “Integration will be the key point of security in these events, and each action has a respective scope,” said Gen. De Nardi. According to Brazilian Minister of Defense Celso Amorim, well-coordinated international cooperation plays an important role in the success of these events. “This is why we have been receiving delegations from different countries and increasing our bonds of trust and interaction with all of them,” Minister Amorim told Diálogo. The general pointed to the security plans implemented during the Military World Games and Rio+20 as examples of the Brazilian Armed Forces’ concern with airspace security, since anti-aircraft artillery is a prerequisite for international committees that organize the World Cup and the Olympic Games. He said anti-aircraft artillery is part of the equation, but it does not represent a solution by itself. Gen. De Nardi said each of the host cities will have an air defense adjusted to its needs (see sidebar). Brazilian Air Base Anti-terror Actions Brasília will serve as a major airbase, with aircraft from different bases throughout the country mobilized for the security of international sports competitions, such as the Confederations Cup, the World Cup and the Olympic Games. The new command and control models were tested last year in military operations that brought the three services together. They anticipate creation of a central command in Brasília to articulate all aerial transportation in the country. Before then, all aircraft involved were moved and accompanied by the command in each region of the country. “It represents the conservation of ma- terial, human and financial resources,” said Lieutenant General Antonio Carlos Egito do Amaral, chief of the Aerial Operations General Command Joint Staff (EMGAR). The World Cup, for instance, will take place in 12 host cities throughout the country, which indicates, by the previous model, that the concentration of resources and Soldiers will be in each of these regions. According to the new model, a central command will coordinate resources for aviation security in the areas of the events. “With centralized planning, we will place the right aircraft at the right time to meet the needs of each area,” the general said.

She reportedly paid $7,880 in tuition and fees for the spring semester.Meanwhile, the lawsuit filed last week in Leon County circuit court against the Board of Governors by University of Florida graduate student Anthony Rojas seeks only to obtain a refund of fees, and not tuition.“Plaintiff’s claims relate solely to fees paid by Florida residents for on-campus services and do not concern fees or costs for tuition and/or room and board because students were able to complete their courses and obtain their credits for the spring semester and because the universities have offered appropriate refunds relating to room and board, but not as to fees,” the Rojas lawsuit said.All three of the lawsuits make allegations such as breach of contract and “unjust enrichment.”While the Fagundez and Rojas lawsuits seek are seeking class action status on behalf of students throughout the university system, the Egleston case focuses only on the University of Florida.Judges will end up deciding whether to allow any or all of them to proceed as class action claims. A Florida International University student this week filed what is at least the third potential class-action lawsuit seeking refunds for students within the state university system.The latest complaint, like the others, alleges “inferior” online classes when campuses closed this spring due to the coronavirus pandemic.Attorneys for Sarah Fagundez, an FIU graduate student from Miami, filed the suit against the university system’s Board of Governors on Tuesday in Leon County circuit court.Meanwhile, University of Florida student Dylan Egleston filed a similar lawsuit on Monday against the UF Board of Trustees. That action also followed another case that was filed against the Board of Governors in circuit court.Fagundez argues that she and other students in the university system should receive refunds for parts of tuition and fees they paid for the spring and summer semesters.“Plaintiff (Fagundez) does not impugn defendant for taking measures to protect the public health; but the defendant must acknowledge that the education and services it now provides to students throughout the university system lack the full value of those for which plaintiff and the class paid,” Tuesday’s lawsuit against the Board of Governors said.It continues, “Not only is a fully online college experience inferior, socially and academically, to the in-person experience for which plaintiff and the class paid; but the university system’s ersatz online courses now offered to students are inferior to online courses that were conceived as such in the first instance.”
Submitted by Hartley JewelersWhen Joe Lozito began his quest for the perfect engagement ring for his fiancée, Jen O’Neal, he had an inkling of where to begin, but no idea about the long journey the ring would take, nor about the journey the stones had already taken.Jen sums up the ring’s journey: “The stone came from my parents, the diamonds from his parents, and it was made by a jeweler in Washington.”The stories of the stones begin in New York and Thailand. Let’s start with the New York stones. Joe grew up in New York, the son of opera singers. Joe’s mother, Adele, died when he was 15, and her wedding ring was safely set aside. Because the ring had been stored away for many years, Joe had forgotten what it looked like. At Joe’s request, his father, Art, showed him the ring, which had a marquise stone and four small diamonds. With his father’s blessing, Joe took the four small diamonds, and his brother received the larger stone.When Joe asked Jen’s dad for his blessing to marry his daughter, Jen’s mom offered the center stone of her ring, a star sapphire. Jen, who grew up in Olympia, fondly remembers her mom wearing the ring, and the sapphire is even more meaningful since it is Jen’s birthstone.Joe wanted the heirloom stones – four small diamonds and a star sapphire – to be made into a contemporary engagement ring. Jen’s family had long shopped at Hartley Jewelers in Olympia, so Joe talked to Rick Hartley about designing Jen’s ring.The design process started with making two-dimensional sketches. When the ring design drawings satisfied Joe, the goldsmith, DeAnn Hamilton, created a wax mold. Joe approved each step of the process through photographs because he was in New York. When the design was finalized, a casting mold was made. After several more steps in the process, finally, the ring was completed.“It’s an extensive process,” explains DeAnn. “Once the custom ring is created, we destroy the mold, so it’s truly one-of-a-kind.”The star sapphire had come from Thailand when Jen’s father served in the military and went to Vietnam during the war, about 1968–69. “It was an awful place that he didn’t want to be,” says Jen. “My mother didn’t want him to go.” One day he went to Thailand with a Thai friend who took him to a jewelry store. There Jen’s dad bought the star sapphire stone for his wife in Olympia. “He brought something beautiful back from such an ugly time in their lives,” Jen says.During the first four months of Joe and Jen’s engagement, Jen wore a green plastic engagement ring, a nod to the couple’s interest in science fiction. She was patient because she knew a real ring was in production.About designing a contemporary ring, Rick Hartley says, “We get to blend a heritage from two different families into an heirloom ring that is a daily part of their lives. They are wearing part of their histories. We help them create something that’s unique and different.”When Joe finally had the ring in his hands in New York, he took Jen to a waterfront town with crab houses and seafood shacks – a town that reminds her of Olympia – to give her the ring.Joe and Jen were married on Oct. 22 on Long Island. They incorporated other family heirlooms and vintage items, including a cake knife and old books, into their wedding décor.They live in New Jersey and work in New York City.By Paula Rudberg Lowe.

Facebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston County Board of County CommissionersThurston County Public Health has lifted the toxic algae-related warning for Summit Lake. Sample results for the last two weeks show that Anatoxin-a concentrations in the water are less than one microgram per liter, the level of public health concern.The sample taken on May 13, 2018 had Anatoxin-a at 0.59 ug/L, below the level of public health concern for the second consecutive week. The results for the first sample taken on Monday, May 7, 2018 showed toxin levels were at 0.076 micrograms per liter.Since April 24, Summit Lake has been under a toxic algae alert recommending not drinking or using the lake water for the roughly 400 homes that surround the lake.Health Department staff will monitor the lake for toxin producing algae blooms only when residents report a new algae bloom. Residents can sign up for email updates and advisories for Summit Lake by calling Thurston County Public Health at 360-867-2626.“It’s important for residents of all our lakes to understand that algae blooms tend to increase in the summer months, when the weather is warmer,” said Art Starry, Environmental Health Division Director. “While science doesn’t yet know what makes an algae bloom become toxic, we do see patterns that indicate people should use extra caution in the warmer months. A catch phrase that may help is, ‘when in doubt—stay out.’”Residents should flush their water systems any time an algae alert is lifted, prior to drinking from their taps. Instructions on how to do this are on the Thurston County Summit Lake Toxic Algae web page here: https://bit.ly/2ohXydEFor more information about blue-green algae and the County lakes program, visit the County’s Blue-Green Algae Advisories website.
