Or 70 years ago.

A causeway with two dozen stability points and removeable bridges guarantees safety from everything except missiles.

Of course, Hamas will be attacking it with missiles.

On March 12, 2024, four more Army vessels set sail from Joint Base Langley-Eustis to join the operation: USAVs Monterrey, Matamoros, SP4 James A. Loux and Wilson Wharf.

The brigade, a component of the XVIII Airborne Corps, is the Army's premier watercraft unit specializing in Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore, or JLOTS.

JLOTS systems can jointly employ Army and Navy logistics assets to deliver critical supplies to troops or civilians in austere environments anywhere in the world.

"This is Army watercraft's moment, and we're up for it," said Army Col. Samuel S. Miller, the 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary) commander. Army Col. Samuel S. Miller, commander of the 7th Transportation Brigade (Expeditionary), provides an overview of his unit’s capabilities at Joint Base Langley-Eustis, Va., March 12, 2024. The unit is deploying as part of a Joint Logistics Over-the-Shore mission to construct 1,800-foot causeway off the coast of Gaza to enable the flow of critical aid from the sea to civilians affected by the ongoing conflict.

"The U.S. and the world will see our humanitarian capability on display and in action forward," he said. "The 7th TB(X) is highly trained, mobile, versatile and capable to operate in these types of environments."

Delivering the capability involves the complex choreography of logistics support and landing craft vessels that carry the equipment used to construct an approximately 1,800-foot causeway comprised of modular sections linked together known as a Trident Pier.

Once in theater, the unit will begin construction of the causeway off the coast of Gaza enabling the flow of critical aid from the sea to civilians affected by the ongoing conflict. The capability is expected to be operational in approximately 60 days.

Niacin, or vitamin B3, supplements linked to greater risk of heart attacks and strokes by Cancelthis in Military

Niacin supplements linked to greater risk of heart attacks and strokes

People with higher levels of niacin in their blood may be more at risk of a heart attack or stroke, possibly because too much of the vitamin inflames blood vessels

By Grace Wade

19 February 2024

People with high levels of niacin, also known as vitamin B3, in their blood may be more likely to have a heart attack or stroke than those with lower levels. Excessive amounts of the vitamin, which is routinely added to fortified food and can be taken as a supplement, may inflame blood vessels.

Heart attacks and stroke are leading causes of death worldwide. While researchers have made significant strides over the past few decades in discovering the risk factors for these conditions, they haven’t identified them all.

“If you treat [high] cholesterol and [high] blood pressure and diabetes and all the existing risk factors, you can still suffer a heart attack,” says Stanley Hazen at the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio. “There is something that we are missing.”

In an effort to fill these gaps, Hazen and his colleagues collected blood samples from 2331 adults in the US and 832 adults in Europe who had elected to undergo cardiovascular screenings. The team analysed the samples for substances called metabolites, byproducts of metabolic processes such as digestion. The researchers then tracked incidents of cardiac events, such as heart attacks and strokes, among the participants over three years.

They found that people with elevated levels of a metabolite called 4PY were around 60 per cent more likely, on average, to experience such an event than those with lower levels. This compound only arises when the body breaks down excess niacin.

We know that inflammation is a major contributor to the development of heart disease, says Hazen.

It isn’t uncommon for people to have high niacin levels, he says. This is partially due to certain foods, such as cereals and flours, being routinely fortified with the vitamin in countries that include the UK and the US.

Niacin supplements are also increasingly popular as evidence suggests they have anti-ageing benefits, says Hazen. Plus, it wasn’t until recently that doctors stopped prescribing high-dose niacin to people at risk of cardiovascular disease, as it was initially thought the vitamin protected people from these conditions by lowering cholesterol.

“I think this study really shows that sometimes, when it comes to vitamins, you can have too much of a good thing,” says Jenny Jia at Northwestern University in Chicago, Illinois.

However, this research was mainly conducted in people of European ancestry. It is therefore unclear if similar results would occur in people of different racial or ethnic backgrounds, says Jia.

Sixty-one people, including women and children, have drowned following a shipwreck off Libya, a UN agency has said.

The boat originally contained 86 people and left the Libyan shores from Zwara, according to the International Organization for Migration.

Earlier, British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said illegal migration threatens to "overwhelm" Europe and hinted a change is needed in international law in order to tackle it.

I re-watched it. I think this is an Israeli fireworks show. There is 1 rocket coming from the background that appears to be different/Palestinian, but at the last second, it turns straight upward before exploding, demonstrating that it is also a guided Israeli missile.

Their missiles do all explode at the same spot... so it kinda works?

those flashes are the iron dome missiles exploding. what an interception would look like is seeing a gaza fired rocket's trajectory, and seeing the iron dome rocket's trajectory, and then seeing the flash.

I've been trying to find a real interception video for years. It simply doesn't exist. Iron Dome news reports all use computer animations rather than footage.

Isn't it strange that the US agreed the buy an iron dome system from israel, but later backed out?

They do mention that yes. Old Tanks need Old Parts. Old Tanks need Old Tank Crews. Old tanks are also missing a lot of the modern tracking and guidance system. I still cant believe that the running and maintenance costs of a M60 is 6 - 12 times more expensive than a modern Abrams!

Old tanks require a lot of old parts. No old parts, no old tanks. Then there is the problem that old tanks can easily be defeated with new anti-tank weapons. Of course a functional old tank against small arms is no contest in a small local skirmish.

Sucks for people who have issues shaving.

Permanent No-Shave Waivers. Because of the safety risks that facial hair introduces in operational, training and maintenance environments and taking into account that proper treatment can in most cases help Service Members manage their PFB, permanent no- shave waivers are no longer authorized. Service Members previously issued a permanent no-shave waiver will obtain a medical re- evaluation and new treatment regimen within 6 months of the release of the revised BUPERSINST 1000.22C. Service Members assigned to a region or on deployment where PFB re-evaluations and treatments are not available are temporarily exempt from the 6-month re-evaluation requirement, and will follow the guidance of their CO for shaving until re-evaluation and treatment are available. At no time will hair growth exceed one-quarter of an inch between directed shaving periods.

I appreciate the support sentiment, but I'm not interested in starting yet another forum. However, I do plan on setting up a PeerTube and some websites this year - all for these projects, some interrelated.

One of those projects is not to set up another forum - but to lay the foundations for the next generation (or few) forums. I can work on 2 of the 3 critical aspects. I will not do the coding aspect, but I can develop the goals and plans for how we could cultivate a better community with stronger distributed leadership and democratic ideas and a public square to hash things out. It won't be perfect but it would be better than a SaidIt monarchy adrift without goals. I will draft a rough manifesto and collectively we can improve it, add notes, caveats, fork it, etc. Hopefully it might be a guide for many future forums. SaidIt is a good start, but we can do better, must, and must try.

The remaining part that I want to develop is the fundamental functionality of future forums. Again, I am drafting something of a wish list or to do list for coders. More important that simply adding modular functionality, I want to overhaul to improve some of the concepts and purposes and flow of the GUI. I firmly believe I have some serious new game changers for common sense features that need to be built into the next gen forums - as well as the well known things we don't have yet. Again, I plant the seed with my first draft, then others can provide feedback and help evolve it. If these are reasonably inspiring I don't see why they can't be made, even if it takes a couple years.

The excesses of the military industrial academic complex, the deep state, the corporatocracy, and the current COVID Trump/Biden tyranny, and all divisive tribalism are all exceptionally problematic.

Thanks for making this /s/Military sub. It has been on my list for a LOOOOOOONG time, and while I have a long list of subs I want to see made, this was among the very top, planned for the next few weeks.

Oddly, I've been drafting a post about all these subs and other ideas and how I'm going to quit SaidIt as we know it to pull back, focus, and create interactive community and content projects. Keeping up on the news is addictive, but I already know it's all corrupt - so I need to be productive in developing solutions and maybe even make an income.

Sadly I fucked up my back a couple weeks ago and I just can't think clearly. When I make this change I want to be compelling to make an impact. So it might be another week or few...
