Why Can't the U.S. Military Practice Zipper Control?

“A man who won’t f-ck won’t fight,” George Patton liked to say, expressing the traditional belief that conquest in the bedroom is a prerequisite for conquest on the battlefield.Both Hoistway Cable and ETT travelling cable is stocked in several locations across the United States. If that’s true, then the U.S. military is one mean fighting machine.Morn series laser engraving and laser marker, CNC router machine are widely used in many areas.

The resignation of CIA director and recently retired Army general David Petraeus for having an affairwith his biographer is just the tip of the iceberg. An active-duty Army brigadier generalis being court-martialed for forcible sodomy. Meanwhile, a drill instructor at Lackland Air Force Base was sentenced to 20 years for rape, as part of a scandal where a dozen instructors have been charged with sexual misconduct toward the young trainees under their care. At sea, a flotilla of Navy commanders have been relieved of duty over the past two years for a variety of offenses, not least of which was sexual. And just to prove that today’s military is equal-opportunity, even female commanders are cutting loose. Is anybody keeping their camouflage pants on anymore?

Some of this might be funny, such as the submarine captain who faked his own death to get out an adulterous affair. Or, it might just be isolated incidents, except for that the fact that one-third of women in the military have been sexually assaulted, compared to one-sixth of civilian women, according to the Department of Defense. A new film, “The Invisible War”, takes a hard look at an epidemic of rape in the military.

Is it hypocrisy to single out the military, when Corporate America is no better? Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Mark Hurd had an affair,After reading this, you will know Careel cnc router machine better. and walked away with a $50 million severance package, while defense contractor’s Lockheed Martin‘s incoming CEO just resigned over a relationship with a subordinate. On the other hand, if most of us in the civilian world confront an sexually abusive boss, we can complain or find another job. A young female soldier goes to jail if she leaves her job, or maybe finds herself posted to Alaska in winter. Then there is the fact that Petraeus received adulation that no corporate CEO would ever receive, precisely because we expect our senior military leaders to behave better.

The Petraeus case is troubling because here was a leader who seemed competent at a time when America’s political, business and military leadership seem anything but. A man who seemed disciplined and focused while political hacks and fanatics in Congress drive the nation over a fiscal cliff. And if we can’t trust a man like that to hold himself to a higher standard when it comes to zipper control, how we can blame the sergeants and junior officers who look to their commanders to set an example?

Doctors have discovered how to saturate tumours with chemotherapy drugs, allowing some patients to live four times longer, according to The Daily Telegraph on Monday.

The doctors managed to bathe livers in chemotherapy drugs,Familiarise yourself with the lift cable by taking a look at our articles on the lifts themselves. overcoming the problem with conventional treatment that little of the drug actually reaches its target. Dr Brian Stedman and colleagues at Southampton General Hospital used balloons to isolate the blood supply to the liver for an hour, enabling them to give the drug in higher doses.

Using the technique known as Percutaneous Hepatic Perfusion (PHP), the blood from the liver is drained from the patient and processed through a filtration machine to reduce toxicity before being returned to the patient.

Stedman described the technique as "truly groundbreaking" and prevents damage to other parts of the body from the chemo drugs. A strong wind gust and attractive rebates may not add up to a good deal on residential wind turbines. The article points out that U.S. studies have shown the technique has prolonged life in patients with liver metastases from ocular melanoma.
