Black Lacrosse Alliance x PLL – Q&A with Jules Heningburg
The Premier Lacrosse League and PLL Assists support the Black Lacrosse Alliance in its efforts to promote diversity, inclusiveness and unity in the sport of lacrosse. The BLA, which was founded in July 2020 and consists of a number of black players in the sport, looks to continue its growth as we enter the new calendar year. We caught up with BLA co-founder and star Redwoods attackman to learn more about the Black Lacrosse Alliance and its importance to the sport.
Mathieu: For those who are not as familiar with the Black Lacrosse Alliance, what do you want the lacrosse world to know about the work you’re doing?
Heningburg: The Black Lacrosse Alliance is the collective group of black professional players, spanning multiple leagues across Lacrosse. What first began as conversations in response to the racial tensions and civil rights movement we have seen over the past year, became a group of players committed to taking more ownership and responsibility in the role we play in all of it. First and foremost, we believe representation matters. Seeing professional players that look like you as a young black player gives the next generation hope. We are investing time into 3 pillars, including Culture & Education, Grassroots, and Professional Game Development. If we can create a more inclusive culture, spread the game and represent it at the highest level, we believe we can look back in the next decade and have made significant improvements to the lives of many young players and the sport.
Mathieu: You and your fellow black lacrosse players have undoubtedly had to deal with a lot over your careers. With everything that has happened in 2020, what was it about the current social climate that made this the right moment for you all to mobilize the way that you have?
Heningburg: There was a collection of things that led to us coming together. There is a risk that comes with speaking up and using your voice including losing teammates, being traded, and even pushed out of playing. However, there is also strength in numbers, something that has not always existed in lacrosse when it comes to black players. Today, we are proud to say we saw 15+ athletes on active rosters spanning both outdoor leagues. The ability to lean on each other in hard times, and feel confident that we are standing for what is right, really allowed us to mobilize the way we have.
Mathieu: You’re one of the league’s most exciting young players. What inspired you, personally, to step into such a visible and important activist role?
Heningburg: A lot of my inspiration comes from my family, and from a responsibility standpoint to do what I know is right. When you have a perspective others around you are unaware of or never hear, you are responsible to speak to that. I have heard “You are my only black friend” more times than I can count. My grandfather was a leader in civil rights throughout New Jersey and the country, and I was raised in a household where it was a prevalent topic and something that meant a lot to my family. Speaking up and sharing my perspective was the right thing to do, and backing down from that responsibility would be doing a genuine disservice to the people I love and to the sport. We need to do more, consistently, to be the leaders that players and families across the nation need us to be.
Mathieu: As is the case in all sports, you guys must deal with some negativity from haters. How do you all deal with the noise?
Heningburg: Dealing with the noise can be difficult at times. Some of the things we see on social media are disheartening, specifically in lacrosse. It’s not surprising at all given the experiences of our players and many other black players across the game, but it still hurts the same amount. It’s important to ignore the social media comments as much as possible, and trust that there are more people who believe in a more inclusive future than might not. People attempt to tie politics into what we stand for and create division. It’s not a political idea to believe in the equal opportunity to play the sport, and for players, coaches, and fans to be included in a culture that accepts everyone regardless of their background and skin colors.
Mathieu: With all of the support that BLA is already receiving from all over North America, can the fans expect to see some merch dropped in 2021?
Heningburg: We have been working hard to establish a strong foundation so that we can continue to build into the future. We know that merch is something that can demonstrate strong unity and can make a big impact to people who believe in our mission. Watch out for a potential drop coming this month!

Mike Carbery – Men’s Lacrosse Coach
Mike Carbery enters his 4th season as head coach at Hilbert during the 2020-21 academic year.
During the 2020 shortened season, the Hawks experienced great success going 3-1 in their four games played. Seniors James Chadwick and Edward Mathias finished in the Top 12 nationally in scoring at 7.75 and 6.50 points per game respectively. The Hawks were dominant on both sides of the field, finishing 2nd in the NEAC in goals per game (15.00), while finishing 3rd in goals against average (11.00). The 2020 squad was on the verge of being in NEAC title contention, while Mathias was on pace to break every significant career scoring record in program history before getting shut down for the season.
The Hawks were equally was impressive in the classroom, as they earned the 2020 AMCC Team Peak Performer Award for having the highest cumulative grade-point average (3.037) of all men’s lacrosse programs in the AMCC.
In 2019, Carbery’s Hawks moved through a rebuilding year after losing his defensive core to graduation in May 2018. Hilbert finished the year at 6-7 and fell short of making the NEAC postseason with a 3-4 record. Edward Mathias (1st), James Duffy (2nd), Devin White-Kearns (3rd) and Elijah Ryan (3rd) were are named to a NEAC All-Conference team.
As well, the Hawks went 3-0 in AMCC action and claimed their second AMCC regular-season championship after earning lop-sided wins over La Roche and Medaille before outlasting Alfred State. Hilbert dominated the 4-team AMCC All-Conference team with Mike Carbery garnering the Coach of the Year honor while James Duffy and Drew Werner were named Offensive Player of the Year and Newcomer of the Year, respectively. Elijah Ryan, Edward Mathias, Devin White-Kearns, Marc O’Neill and Daniel Flynn also joined Duffy on the AMCC 1st Team All-Conference.
His 2018 Hawks qualified for the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) postseason by closing the spring season on a six-game win streak earning a 6-2 league record (9-5 overall). His #3 seeded Hawks dropped an 8-4 loss at #2 Bryn Athyn (7-1) but battled back from a 5-0 hole in the first half and outscored the Lions 4-3 by the final horn.
For only the second time in the program’s history, seven Hilbert players were voted to one of the three NEAC All-Conference teams. Edward Mathias, Austin Good, and Tyler Balsavage were all slotted on the 1st Team while James Duffy and Travis Hicks were picked to the 2nd Team. Marc O’Neill and Ryan Spath were recognized as 3rd Team All-Conference players.
Hilbert also grabbed seven honors in the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference postseason awards. Because the AMCC has only five institutions who sponsor men’s lacrosse, just one All-Conference team is selected. Balsavage, Mathias, O’Neill, Good, Duffy, Hicks and Joseph Stevenson were honored by the four other league coaches. Ryan Spath was named the Newcomer of the Year.
Prior to his arrival at Hilbert, Carbery spent five years as the Director of the Buffalo Lacrosse Academy (BLA) where he oversaw all lacrosse operations. The BLA was created in 2005 to serve as a bridge between local athletes and college programs to showcase men’s lacrosse talent in Western New York.
Previously, Carbery served as an assistant athletic director and head men’s lacrosse coach at Medaille College from 1999 until September 2014. As an administrator, Carbery wore almost every hat in the Mavericks’ athletic department. His spent a majority of his time as the Sports Information Director but also served as the NCAA Compliance Officer and ran the department’s Academic Monitoring and Support program in addition to serving as an Event and Equipment Manager.
Carbery was Medaille’s first head coach having organized the men’s lacrosse program in their first season of competition in 2000. He was named the North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Coach of the Year in 2014 and coached a two-time NEAC Player of the Year/Offensive Player of the Year as well as 20+ players who earned NEAC All-Conference honors.
Prior to Medaille he was the first varsity coach at Canisius High School from 1995-1999 and was named the Section VI Coach of the Year in 1999.
Carbery was a standout goalie at Fayetteville-Manlius High School and became a four-year starter at Canisius College. He was named the Division I team’s Most Valuable Player at the conclusion of his sophomore campaign and the Defensive Player of the Year his senior year.
Carbery will also be responsible for all student-athlete eligibility matters as well as oversee the Athletic Academic Monitoring Program (AAMP) which was developed seven years ago for at-risk student-athletes at Hilbert. This program has helped the Hawks raise the student-athletes cumulative grade point average since its inception. After the 2020 spring semester grades were released, the Hawks moved to their 18th semester in a row where Hilbert’s student-athletes achieved a + 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Brookfield Lacrosse Association registration open
The Brookfield Lacrosse Association is registering players for the spring season.
Interested parents can register their children online at www.brookfieldlacrosse.org.
The Brookfield Lacrosse program has teams for both girls and boys at the high school (varsity and junior varsity) and youth level. Youth teams for boys are for first through eighth grade and for girls are for third through eighth grade.
The season starts in March with indoor practices. The outdoor practices and games begin in April. The season goes through mid-June.
All new players are welcome, although some programs may have wait lists while it is determined how many teams are needed at each level, but every effort is made to get all kids in the program.
Registration will close on February 14 for youth teams and March 1 for high school teams.
The Brookfield Lacrosse Association is a community-based, nonprofit organization that was formed in 2006 to promote the sport of lacrosse in Brookfield and Elm Grove.
The BLA includes players from the entire school district, and players are accepted from adjoining communities that do not have lacrosse programs. There are currently over 250 players in the program.
The BLA website can be accessed through wisconsinlacrosse.com
Lacrosse is the fastest growing sport in the U.S., and Wisconsin is cited as one of the nine states where lacrosse is growing the fastest in the country. The Wisconsin Lacrosse Federation provides oversight to youth, high school, college and postcollegiate lacrosse programs in Wisconsin. They also track the lacrosse participation.
At last count, there were 43 boys high school programs, 21 girls high school programs, 37 boys youth programs and 20 girls youth programs in the state. From 2004-2015, participation numbers at the high school level have increased from 473 to 2,435 players.
The BLA boys youth program grew 235 percent from 2010 to 2013. From 2014 to 2015, the boys youth lacrosse program grew from 80 to 120 players, and they continue to get interest from new players. There is an instructional program for first/second grade and teams at the third/fourth grade-, fifth/sixth grade- and seventh/eighth-grade levels.
The girls youth program was started in 2014 and fields a junior team (grades three to five) and a senior team (grades six to eight).
The high school teams are in the Classic 8 Conference.
The girls high school varsity team was formed in 2007, and they were the state champions two years in a row (2012-2013).
The boys high school varsity program was formed in 2006. The 2014-15 team had three All-Conference honorable-mention players. Several players have gone on to play at the collegiate level.
HOTG Gifts Two AEDs to Brevard Lacrosse Alliance in Viera, FL – Heart of the Game, Inc. Non-Profit
On Saturday, May 4th, 2019, Heart of the Game teamed up with Life Safety Solutions to donate two (2) brand new mobile Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) to the Brevard Lacrosse Alliance so that the youth athletic organization never has to go another day on the field without the safety and protection these life-saving devices provide.
The Brevard Lacrosse Alliance was chosen as Heart of the Game’s next recipients of AEDs in part because of the work the Alliance, along with the Lacrosse association of sport safety and education “LASSE”, has done to raise awareness about sudden cardiac arrest among young athletes. The organization had been fundraising to purchase an AED after local lacrosse player Colin Seely collapsed on a Viera High School field while running laps during ROTC. The Board and the volunteers at the association figured Colin’s incident hit too close to home, and they wanted to make sure they were prepared should another child suddenly go into sudden cardiac arrest.

Thankfully, an AED was quickly employed and it saved Colin’s life. Thanks to this donation by Heart of the Game, the Alliance no longer has to worry about fundraising to buy new AEDs – instead, they can get back to focusing on the kids and making lacrosse accessible for all of Brevard County’s kids.
Lisa Glasband, Vice President for the Heart of the Game, Inc., presented the two AEDS to parents, instructors, members of the board of directors for the Brevard Lacrosse Alliance, as well as the players for the local Brevard Lacrosse teams.
Also in attendance were Colin Seeley and Lexi Sima and their families. Colin was saved by an AED just weeks earlier. Lexi had a similar experience with a life-saving AED two years ago after collapsing while running on a treadmill when she was just 16 years.

Ace’s secret weapon helps Pine-Richland softball to signature early season win | Trib HSSN
By: Jerin Steele
Saturday, April 17, 2021 | 11:01 AM
Louis Raggiunti | For the Tribune-Review
Pine-Richland pitcher Gabbie Aughton competes during practice March 20, 2019 at Pine-Richland.
Gabriella Aughton showed up to Pine-Richland’s game at Hempfield on April 9 with a secret weapon.
She debuted a drop ball pitch, and with the new addition to an already strong repertoire, she proved difficult to hit.
Aughton struck out 12 batters and the Rams got a two-run homer from Mackenzie Gillis to beat the five-time defending WPIAL champion Spartans, 2-0.
It was a big win for a Rams team that has come out of the gates strong going 4-2 and 3-0 in Section 6-A through April 14.
“It was super exciting for all of us,” Aughton said. “We played well together as a team, and Coach Gary (Shepard) put us in the best position to be successful and to win. We have a great defense. I really look at it as a complete team effort. Hempfield is a great team. They are three-time state champions, really well coached and always really talented.”
Aughton, a junior and a Boston College recruit, said the drop ball was the only pitch she really didn’t have in her arsenal. She credited her coach Jason Snyder at Performance Velocity Systems with helping her discover it.
“When I started going to Jason, he observed my mechanics and saw that I had front-forward mechanics, which made the drop ball a perfect pitch for me,” Aughton said. “When I started throwing it, it immediately clicked for me. I found it right away, and it worked really well in the game.”
There was one bullpen session where Aughton worked with catcher Alexia Brown on the drop ball. The next day she put it to use against Hempfield.
“Alexia did an outstanding job (against Hempfield) like she always does,” Aughton said. “Over the offseason, we built some chemistry and really formed an unbreakable bond, and it’s been really paying off in our games. She’s a wall back there. She picked up on the drop ball right away. It was easy for her to adjust, because she’s really good.”
As the scoreless innings wore on, the intensity grew. The game was one inning away from going to the international tiebreaker rule, where a runner starts on second base each half inning. Gillis’ homer allowed Aughton to have a clean slate in the bottom half, and she put up another zero to finish it off.
“I think everyone in the dugout jumped about 10 feet off the ground when she slammed that ball way over the fence, because she really pulled through for us with two outs,” Aughton said. “That gave me some comfort going into the bottom of the eighth, knowing I had a two-run cushion.”
The win over Hempfield punctuated a strong start for the Rams, who had a walkoff 4-3 win over Seneca Valley four days later. Aughton is confident the team can keep it rolling.
“It just shows the hard work we’ve been putting in together is worth it,” Aughton said. “We’ve done a good job of having a team-first mentality. It was a big win, but one thing we want to do is treat every team we play like they’re Hempfield and carry that mentality through the rest of the season.”

Later, when there is time, I will try to write about antifreezes so that it does not look like a simple ‘blah… blah … blah ‘) Who is impatient can do this before me. The subject is very interesting. Looking ahead, I will say that in the selection of antifreeze, it is not the color that matters, but the composition.
We change the faded antifreeze without a shadow of a doubt.
You can mix antifreezes, but only close in composition. Antifreezes of different composition can mutually neutralize each other’s protective components.

90,000 from hummingbird drone to secret spaceship
Recently, experts have reported sensational news.A huge breakthrough is taking place in aerospace reconnaissance. The development of the latest technical espionage tools is in full swing. Of course, most of them are classified as “Top Secret”. But there is still something about new products in the public domain. We talk about them with a veteran of the Soviet and Russian special services, retired Colonel Bronislav Mikhailovich Karpov.
Colonel Karpov devoted more than thirty years to aerospace reconnaissance.And although he is now retired, he still closely follows the news from this area. Bronislav Mikhailovich can talk about heavenly espionage for hours. And now he sat down on his favorite skate and began to talk about the reconnaissance satellites. According to Colonel Karpov, they can view the Earth with a resolution that allows them to regulate traffic. Even at the height of the Cold War, “American hawks”, defending the thesis of the need for domination in space, boasted that the latest US spy satellites made it possible to determine the number and size of stars on the shoulder straps of officers.They say they read the numbers on the general’s limousines. – However, this is empty bragging! – says Bronislav Mikhailovich. – Not everything is visible from above. This has been convincingly proven by the recent failures of American aerial reconnaissance in Syria. Instead of militant positions, they often hit civilians’ homes.
The progress of modern video technology is now used in space reconnaissance to monitor the operational situation. But, as we can see from recent events, even this does not help with a good disguise.Military spy satellites, which shoot secret objects with high resolution, are at an altitude of 130-150 km and are not able to hover over the object.
Western military experts emphasize the specific reconnaissance satellites: the Lacrosse radar and the KN-11 and KN-12 optoelectronic satellites. They conduct reconnaissance of objects 4 times a day. At the same time, for example, they fly twice directly over the territory of Crimea. The maximum resolution of the onboard equipment of such a satellite, according to foreign media, is 0.3–0.9 m, and its weight is about 15 tons.The spy satellite is equipped with an on-board centimeter-band radar with solar panels and a large-size parabolic antenna. But even the Americans do not have round-the-clock surveillance of a certain area of the terrain from space. Although they spend twenty times more money on it than we do.
In what American cent it all pours out, can be judged from the experience of Afghanistan. To get images of the Afghan Taliban camps, the Americans had to launch several Lacrosse-type reconnaissance satellites, which cost up to $ 1.25 billion.Moreover, the lifespan of spy satellites flying at low altitudes ranges from several months to several years. Therefore, lately they have been looking for cheaper ways of scouting from heaven. A new area of activity for the Pentagon is the development of drones that copy birds. Miniature airplanes with flapping wings from a distance are very similar to living birds. This camouflage is extremely useful, especially in densely populated areas and for low-level surveillance. Thanks to the new program, drones are being created that not only copy the appearance of birds, but also imitate the flight mechanics of birds, as well as their natural ability to navigate in space.Robots-birds are better able to withstand strong winds, and most importantly, they can hover in place and actively maneuver in a confined space. The American defense science agency DARPA has announced a competition to create unmanned aerial vehicles that can stay in the air for up to three hours and mimic birds. In response, AeroVironment unveiled its Hummingbird, a robot that demonstrates the benefits of a flapping wing. Using only its wings for movement (there is no propeller), the hummingbird can fly back and forth, hover in the air (despite gusts of wind) and fly through doorways and windows.The small robot weighs 19 grams and transmits video to the control panel in real time.
Multi-day Scout Shuttle Mission
“The Americans are not limited to miniature spy drones,” Colonel Karpov turned on the computer. – Here is one of the latest news from the world of space espionage. More recently, the US Air Force’s 8.8-meter long reusable reconnaissance shuttle X-37B Orbital Test Vehicle landed on the strip of the Space Center. John F. Kennedy in Florida after a 718-day mission.The Pentagon keeps secret the purpose of the X-37B mission, but they call it the most modern and technologically advanced unmanned spacecraft for reusable use. Some Western experts suggest that EMDrive electromagnetic motors were tested on the X-37B, which became a sensation after the publication of a NASA report last fall. Due to the secrecy of the project, many experts say that the Pentagon is developing this spacecraft to destroy satellites or spy on objects in space.
Steeper than AWACS
– Here you are telling all about the new products of the Americans, – our observer interrupted Bronislav Mikhailovich.- And how are things in the field of aerospace reconnaissance?
– Have you decided to put me in Lefortovo? The old scout chuckled. – Nobody has canceled the responsibility for the disclosure of military secrets. But here’s what Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu recently announced at a conference call in the military department. “The A-100 multifunctional aircraft complex for long-range radar detection and control, which is being created in Russia, will be able to detect new classes of targets, including new-generation tactical aviation,” the Minister of Defense said at the meeting.The development of the complex, according to Shoigu, is due to the appearance of targets less vulnerable to air defense systems. And this is indeed so, since the technical ideas were incorporated into our current airborne early warning and control (AWACS) aircraft more than 40 years ago, and they no longer fully meet the challenges of our time.
The new aircraft has new opportunities. All technical parameters have increased dramatically. For example, the range of radio communication. On the HF-band channel, it is 2 thousand km, in the VHF-band – 400 km.At a greater distance, satellite communication channels are used. The Bumblebee-2 airborne complex surpasses the American AN / APY-2 in terms of tactical and technical characteristics, which has begun to be installed on AWACS aircraft. According to experts, the new Russian A-100 aircraft will have a radar of the most modern type. With much better reconnaissance and target acquisition capabilities than AWACS. After all, Russian military radio engineering occupies a leading position in the world. This, for example, is evidenced by the latest electronic warfare systems, which make NATO strategists disheartened.And also reconnaissance equipment of a new type, which our reconnaissance aircraft are equipped with.
– The new A-100 aircraft took off for the first time in April this year. He is still undergoing tests, – the journalist continued to doubt. – How can we now detect important targets in Syria? “Our Tu-214R reconnaissance aircraft are successfully coping with this,” the colonel answered shortly. According to him, this air reconnaissance aircraft is capable of creating accurate and detailed maps of the deployment of enemy forces, even though they are appropriately hidden or disguised.Antennas and sensors are capable of intercepting data from radars, radio and telephone systems, providing an accurate picture of the situation and determining the location of the enemy’s main communications centers. To collect this information, there is no need to approach the observed object. This is one of the advantages of the flying reconnaissance aircraft. The main characteristic of an airplane is its ability to scan what is inaccessible to the human eye.

Japcell BC-4000 charger.Turbocharged economy class.
Today’s review is unusual as it is interactive.
I offer you an overview of the Japcell BC-4000 Charger, and I am also attaching a manual translated by me in Russian to it. It is with him that the chargers will be supplied to Russia from the site ru.Nkon.nl
All constructive and complementary corrections are accepted.
The device presented for review is called IQcharger IQ-328, and has a body in blue-gray tones.Don’t be confused by this – it’s just a regular rebranding.
The theater begins with a hanger, we meet by clothes, in general packaging:
The weight is quite noticeable – most of it is the power supply of the charger. I would say that it is good. If an inexpensive PSU, then let it be heavier. This increases the chance that everything inside is not on the verge of self-driving (awakening) Goranium.
Three volts, four amperes at the output. A lot.
The design is laconic. I will be dishonest if I tell you that I like it.I love stuff with a lot of bells and whistles. Even if I don’t use them. Too simple things don’t suit me. But on the contrary, it should attract a common user. There are only three buttons.
There is a highlight – thermal sensors.
The bottom of the device is riddled with ventilation slots. Let me remind you about 3 volts and 4 amperes …
We include. Ready for work. does not display the firmware version like La Crosse; (
After installing the accs, we set the charge current
Half a lamp is enough
The process has started.
A little later (most likely in the evening or tomorrow) I will add videos to this review, demonstrating all modes of operation, and how to adjust the charge current.
And here is the promised manual.
If you notice any inaccuracies or errors – comment, I will make corrections.
UPDATE: I will cite not literally the words of the seller: “The device does not have the possibility of separate operating modes for the channels, but with the ability to charge the or batteries with a higher current than the competitors corresponding at the price.”
90,000 In the United States allowed to carry knives and sports equipment on board
The US Transportation Safety Administration (TSA) announced that from April 25 this year. new rules are being introduced for carrying items on board aircraft. Air passengers can now carry pocket knives with a blade length of 6 cm or less and a blade width of 1.25 cm or less, in which the blade cannot be locked in the open position, as well as golf, hockey or lacrosse clubs, ski poles and billiard sticks. cues.
This new permit is as difficult to understand as the old ban on all liquids – today it operates in a truncated form: you can transport bottles and bottles with a capacity of less than 100 ml, but only if they are packed in a transparent plastic bag with lightning at the top. Why is it so? Why can’t I go to the departure area with a plastic bottle of drinking water in my hand? So far, no one has given an intelligible explanation.
When it comes to folding knives and clubs, the TSA explanation is striking in the absence of any logic.Here is one of them: the search for knives and sports equipment during the inspection of luggage interferes with the search for toxic and explosive substances (?!). But another thing: with the current security measures on board (air marshals on most flights, reinforced cockpit doors, weapons issued to pilots, special training of crews to counter terrorists and hooligans), it is inappropriate to restrict the transportation of these items. Is it advisable to create an additional threat to passengers and a headache for the crew and security marshals?
Unsurprisingly, the TSA decision caused a storm of protests.The union of flight attendants protests, the Association of Federal Law Enforcement Officials protests, the CEO of Delta Airlines expresses concern, promises to take legislative action against TSA, Democratic Senator from New York Charles Schumer. And for the average layman (including your correspondent), the main aspect of this question is that a folding knife, a golf club (a heavy metal thing), and a ski pole can become a formidable weapon in the hands of some healthy fellow with ill intentions.If these items have been banned for quite some years, then why are they allowed now? Give us better water to carry with us and stop shoeing us before landing – in many countries this is not done, and nothing. Shine through my shoes on me, not separately.
Senator Schumer called on the TSA to reverse its “authorization decision”. Not so long ago, this department has already backtracked: it began to replace previously installed scanners in most airports, which “undress” a person – they shine through him so that a nude image of an individual, albeit somewhat blurred, appears on the TSA controller’s screen.The people have long protested against this violation of privacy, and now TSA has begun replacing shameless cars with more discrete ones. The impudent cost the state $ 49 million. According to Florida Congressman John Mike, who chairs the House Government Oversight Subcommittee, replacing old scanners with new ones and training staff to handle new equipment will cost hundreds of millions of dollars.
The Washington Post quotes a former employee of the Israeli special services Rafi Ron – he believes that in order to prevent terrorist attacks on board aircraft, it is necessary, in addition to scanning, “probing”.But the hand groping of air passengers, which from a certain point began to apply TSA, caused a storm of indignation among Americans: they are obsessed with privacy and cannot stand any touch, even accidental, not to mention deliberate groping. On the Internet, millions of people have watched an amateur video where the TSA inspector is feeling a man, and he threateningly warns: “Don’t you dare touch my personal belongings!”
The general consensus is that TSA should focus on something else – on the quality of its staff and their proper training.TSA supervisors themselves need oversight. There were many cases when these would-be employees let weapons on board the aircraft (periodically there are “check-ins”), left their posts (as a result of which people from outside entered the closed area), were distracted by telephone conversations, walking on the Internet and jokes colleagues. Last summer, eight controllers who worked at Newark Airport, one of the three New York airports, and one of the largest in the country, were fired for sleeping at the workplace.And quite recently, an inspector disguised as an ordinary passenger carried a bomb in his trousers (thank God, not a real one) – despite the transmission and feeling.
But after the permission of knives and clubs, someone will probably report on the work done to improve … blah blah blah …
HOW DO WE ARE?
In Russia, the transport of knives with a blade length of less than 6 cm and sports equipment on board an aircraft is not prohibited anyway.Certain items may have their own restrictions imposed by individual airlines, airports, or entire countries. However, they must warn their passengers in advance.
So, since 2009 in Europe there has been a ban on the import of dairy and meat products there. And some French airports may not let you out if you have a piece of cheese with you. “All requirements (regarding the transportation of cues, clubs, bits and penknives on board. – MK), which were introduced by the United States in 2001, were introduced additionally,” Vladimir Chertok, Deputy Head of Rostransnadzor, explained the situation to MK.So the American airlines did not stop fulfilling their obligations under their international agreements. And so they may well re-authorize the transport of these items.
Minimum requirements are set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which currently includes 191 countries. Prohibited items, as defined by ICAO, do not include sports equipment or pocket knives, the blade of which does not exceed certain parameters. The transportation of these items on board is separately negotiated with the airlines.Just like, for example, transporting musical instruments and other valuable and bulky items.
Research Institute of Economics | The enemy will be blinded by the new “Lever”
06 Sep The enemy will be blinded by the new “Lever”
Work on a new electronic warfare helicopter complex is nearing completion in Russia
A new electronic jamming helicopter complex is ready for testing in Russia, sources say.We are talking about a modernized version of the unique Russian complex “Lever” based on the Mi-8MTPR helicopter, specifies “Gazeta.Ru”.
Russian specialists have prepared a new electronic jamming helicopter complex for testing, TASS reported on Friday, citing a source in the defense industry. Such complexes are designed to protect helicopter connections. By their interference, they “blind” the enemy, disabling the anti-aircraft missile guidance systems and disrupting the navigation and communications of military formations.
“In the near future it will be tested,” an anonymous interlocutor assured the agency, without naming a specific complex. According to the interlocutor of TASS, the development of new items is already at the final stage.
The information was also confirmed by the interlocutor of Gazeta.Ru in the helicopter industry, refusing to give details.
“There is such a machine, but its appearance (the equipment that is added to the database. -” Gazeta.Ru “) has not yet been seen by anyone, except for narrow specialists,” the interlocutor explained.
The Concern “Radioelectronic Technologies” (KRET), which develops Russian electronic warfare (EW), did not specify which complex was referred to in the TASS report. The official representative of the company Dmitry Ozhegin explained to Gazeta.Ru that in Russia there are only two group protection complexes, which are a special helicopter, fully equipped only with electronic warfare equipment: “Lever-AV” and its export version – “Lever-AVE”.
According to Ozhegin, active work is underway on a new modification of the complex – “Lever-AVM”, which the general director of KRET will talk about during the “Army-2016” forum.
Lever complexes are installed on special Mi-8MTPR-1 helicopters. Such vehicles are capable of “blind” the enemy within a radius of 400 km. Lever has a special database that stores information about various military targets. This allows you to select the most effective interference for a specific type of target. The new complex may become the most powerful in its class not only in Russia, but also in the world.
During the use of electronic warfare equipment, a continuous bright illumination is observed on the screens of indicators of radar stations of radio technical troops and anti-aircraft missile systems, instead of displaying the air situation.
It becomes impossible to control troops by radio – instead of instructions from commanders and reports from subordinates, only noise is heard in the headphones of radio operators. Missile and guided bomb guidance is disrupted. Instead of hitting designated targets, they fall at random locations. Navigation and radar support for aircraft flights are becoming impossible.
The chief of the electronic warfare troops, Major General Yuri Lastochkin, previously stated that the Russian electronic warfare technology is superior to Western counterparts.“The main advantages of domestic electronic warfare technology over foreign counterparts include the greater range of its action, which is achieved through the use of more powerful transmitting devices and more efficient antenna systems,” says Lastochkin.
According to him, Russian electronic warfare equipment surpasses Western equipment in terms of the number of objects to be influenced.
Now in the Russian arsenal of modern electronic warfare means the mobile complex “Krasukha-4”, which serves for jamming at a distance of 150-300 km.The manufacturer calls the complex effective for countering electronic reconnaissance means of satellites such as Lacrosse and Onyx, AWACS and Sentinel aircraft, as well as unmanned aerial vehicles.
The Khibiny EW multifunctional aircraft complex, which gained wide popularity after completely suppressing the intelligence and command and control systems, as well as the missile defense system of the US Navy destroyer Donald Cook in the Black Sea in 2014, has established itself in the army. “Khibiny” can be a group means of protecting aircraft from all existing anti-aircraft and aviation weapons.
The Porubshchik complex on an electronic warfare Il-22 aircraft is equipped with side antennas and a cable with a transmitting device that unwinds several hundred meters in flight.
