    Sierra Vista Herald ^ | Sean Kimmons (Army News Service)
    Gen. Robert Abrams, chief of U.S. Army Forces Command, sees a greater need for training opportunities to help service branch personnel adopt new technologies and prepare for future multi-domain conflicts. Abrams noted soldiers at present maintain a ratio of about 1-to-1.3 in terms of deployed time versus dwell time for skill development, the Army said Friday. “Our No. 1 constraint for training is time available,” Abrams told an Association of the U.S. Army discussion on readiness. “Our commitments worldwide across the globe in support of our combatant commanders remain at a very high level, while we continue to simultaneously downsize...

    Federal government employees are opening their wallets to help Hillary Clinton beat Donald Trump on Nov. 8. Of the roughly $2 million that federal workers from 14 agencies spent on presidential politics by the end of September, about $1.9 million, or 95 percent, went to the Democratic nominee’s campaign, according to an analysis by The Hill. ADVERTISEMENT Employees at all the agencies analyzed, without exception, are sending their campaign contributions overwhelmingly to Clinton over her Republican counterpart. Several agencies, such as the State Department, which Clinton once led, saw more than 99 percent of contributions going to Clinton.

    It’s not every day an American presidential candidate flatly says his opponent will cause World War Three. But Donald Trump did just that yesterday, accusing Hillary Clinton of recklessly seeking confrontation with Russia over Syria—where, he claims, the Democratic nominee is insufficiently worried about the Islamic State. “What we should do is focus on ISIS. We should not be focusing on Syria,” Trump stated in Florida at his Trump National Doral golf resort. “You’re going to end up in World War Three over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.” He then hinted at possible nuclear Armageddon caused by Hillary’s...

    DEVELOPING: The U.S. Secretary of Defense said Tuesday that he is ordering the Pentagon to suspend its effort to recover the decade-old reenlistment bonuses paid to thousands of California Army National Guard soldiers who fought in Iraq and Afghanistan. About 2,000 soldiers were recently told they had to repay the cash bonuses that, in some cases, amounted to $15,000 or more. Ash Carter, the secretary, said in a statement that there is a process in place to assist soldiers who seek relief of such obligations, and in this case, “hundreds” of Guard members have already sought and have been granted...

The Pentagon has shifted emphasis away from the electromagnetic rail gun as a next-generation missile defense platform, sees a new hypervelocity powder gun technology as the key to demonstrating to potential adversaries like China and Russia that U.S. military units on land and sea can neutralize large missile salvos in future conflicts The guided projectile being developed for EMRG (Electromagnetic Railguns) can also be fired from 5-inch...

  • US wants Mexico under grid security pact before year's end

    The Obama administration is scrambling to make Mexico by the end of the year a full-fledged member of a North American industry pact that works to defend the electric grid from cyberattacks. The reason for the eleventh-hour move to include Mexico in the cybergroup is likely a result of the contentious presidential election and the administration's goals of creating a North American clean energy grid. Such collaboration would be far less likely if Republican nominee Donald Trump gets into office with his walled-off vision for the U.S., said a senior industry official. But it would benefit Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton,...

    It's not talked about enough, but in an economy of individuals (meaning, the only kind of economy) recessions are healthy. As individuals we regularly develop bad habits, and it's during recessions that we break them. Cris Carter was a good NFL receiver who scored a lot of touchdowns, but it was only after Buddy Ryan waived him from the Philadelphia Eagles that he was forced to confront his difficulties with drugs and alcohol. Carter's personal recession happily forced him to break his talent-sapping habits on the way to a Hall of Fame NFL career. Looked at in the bigger picture,...

    SWARTHMORE – In the United States and elsewhere nowadays, populist politicians often claim that easy monetary policy is hurting ordinary workers, thereby exacerbating income inequality. But while inequality is a problem, raising interest rates is no way to address it. To say otherwise is a strange claim for anyone to make, especially populists. After all, low interest rates benefit debtors and hurt creditors, as does the inflation that can be spurred by monetary easing. Throughout most of US history, for example, populists have supported easy monetary policy as a way to help the little guy against distant bankers with hard...

On Monday,, the federal marketplace serving 39 states, pulled back the curtains to allow consumers to window shop for 2017 plans. As it did so, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a report analyzing the premiums consumers will have to pay for 2017 marketplace coverage and the coverage choices they will have available. The HHS report documents what has already been widely reported -- that after two years of moderate premium increases (2% for 2015 and...

The court threw out that move saying they did it without offering a public comment period. Senator Ben Sasse issued the following statement: “Nebraska farmers and ranchers didn’t elect any of the bureaucrats at OSHA. That’s why this ruling is an encouraging step to restore common sense and the separation of powers.”

    The Hagia Sophia is one of the most beautiful and well-known buildings in the world -- and Islamists have detested that fact for years. After all, it is a Christian church, and therefore a Christian symbol. That's why the Ottoman Turks wasted little time transforming the church into a mosque when they invaded and conquered Constantinople (Istanbul) centuries ago. Christian symbols and works of art were destroyed or covered, and a dominating tower was built from which the Islamic call to prayer could be sung. The Ottomans did that because they wanted to show Christians that, from then onwards, Islam...

Just two weeks before Election Day, the New York businessman addressed the health care development during an appearance at one of his Florida golf resorts that highlighted the extraordinary intersection of his business and political interests.
