Bradley Spacy on Friday took command of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center (AFIMSC), the agency responsible for consolidating installation management functions across the service.Spacy replaces Maj.

It’s going to take hard work. Lisa and I will be there with you every step of the way … and it’s going to be a lot of fun,” Spacy concluded.AFIMSC supports 77 Air Force installations, nine major commands and two direct reporting units with an annual budget of $10 billion.

4 Things To Know About Trick Or Treating In Wilmington

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below are four things every Wilmington trick-or-treater should know!#1) No Set TimeWilmington has no “official” trick or treating hours.“We tell families that trick or treating starts when it gets dark, with the expectation that most families with young children will conclude that a couple of hours is enough time to be out gathering treats,” said Town Manager Jeff Hull. “To my knowledge, we have not had a problem with unofficial approach.”On Halloween, the sun is scheduled to set in Wilmington at 5:38pm.#2) Forecast Looks GoodAccording to the National Weather Service, Halloween will be mostly cloudy with a low around 47. Patchy fog is expected after 10pm. There’s a 30% chance of rain, but not until after 2am.#3) Best NeighborhoodsTwo areas in town — the Pouliot Place/Shawsheen Commons/Mink Run Road area and the Hathaway Acres area, off of Salem Street — are known as particularly popular places for trick or treaters.#4) Keep SafeBelow are safety tips from the Massachusetts State Fire Marshal:More children are hit by cars on Halloween than any other single day, so it’s important for children to be visible and to practice pedestrian safety.Children should carry a flashlight or glow sticks and costumes should be bright-colored or have reflective tape to highlight them.Drivers should use extra caution: drive more slowly and watch for children who may forget to cross at corners and use crosswalks.Keep decorations like cornstalks and leaves away from heat sources and lit candles. Switch to battery operated candles.Be sure all parts of costumes are labeled flame retardant.Costumes should not have trailing materials or tails long enough to cause falls.If a child is wearing a mask instead of make-up, make sure the eye holes are large enough to see through clearly.Make sure your home is well-lit inside and out and that there is a clear path to your door.Children under 12 should always be with an adult. It’s best to take little ones out early. If older children are going out without you, go over the ground rules first and set a curfew. Have them travel in a group and with a cell phone and flashlight.Remind youngsters to cross at crosswalks or corners and not to dart out between parked cars.Fireworks are dangerous and illegal in Massachusetts. The ban includes firecrackers, cherry bombs and party poppers.For more information on Halloween Safety, contact your local fire department or look at the Department of Fire Services website at http://www.mass.gov/dfs, type Halloween Safety in the search bar, or call the Public Fire Safety Education Hotline at 1-877-9-NO-FIRE.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Rohingyas can be a threat to countrys security PM

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina is addressing her valedictory speech in the 21st (budget) session of the current parliament on 12 July. Photo: PIDPrime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the security and stability of Bangladesh could be hampered if the displaced Rohingya people cannot be repatriated soon, reports UNB.”If we can’t send them back soon, there’s an apprehension that our security and stability will be at stake,” she told parliament while replying to a tabled question from Awami League MP Nur Mohammad (Kishoreganj-2).The prime minister said, “It’s very tough for us to arrange food, clothes and accommodation for over 1.1 million Myanmar nationals for an indefinite time.”This is why the government has been making diplomatic efforts to find out a permanent solution since the very beginning of the crisis for sending the forcibly-displaced Rohingyas back to their homeland, she said.Sheikh Hasina said the displaced people, deprived of basic rights by the Myanmar authorities, are naturally suffering from dissatisfaction.Noting that any repatriation process is a very complicated and lengthy process, she said Bangladesh and the international community are exerting pressure on Myanmar to create a congenial environment in Rakhine state.Unfortunately, she said, it is true there has been no visible progress in the situation due to a rigid stance of Myanmar government.Besides, Myanmar is involved in carrying out propaganda in the international arena that the Rohingya repatriation is being delayed for the noncooperation of Bangladesh, she added.The prime minister said Bangladesh repeatedly raised voice in different fora that Myanmar is responsible for taking back its all the displaced people, and Myanmar will have to take the initiative in this regard.She said Bangladesh and Myanmar signed a total of three bilateral agreements. The repatriation process would be completed within two years according to an agreement out of three. “But the Myanmar government has delayed the process by creating in many ways.”In reply to a question from treasury bench member M Abdul Latif (Chattogram-11), the prime minister said the government has set a target to create some 15 million jobs in the next five years.She said the present government has taken various measures to transform the young generation into human resources by creating jobs in the country in line with strategies and targets of the 7thfive-year plan (2016-20).last_img read more
