Training in the pirates’ modus operandi, tactics, rules of engagement, unarmed combat and detention of suspects were carried out onboard the FS FLOREAL before moving to the M/V PETRA for practical drills. The training culminated with the presentation of certificates by the Commanding Officer, Commander Christophe Pasco, to the AMISOM team. The training will allow significant flexibility in the planning for World Food Programme and AMISOM escorts and if the occasion arises, these troops will be able to operate autonomously.EU NAVFOR conducts counter-piracy in the Indian Ocean and is responsible for the protection of World Food Program ships carrying humanitarian aid for the people of Somalia and the logistic support vessels of the African Union troops conducting Peace Support Operations in Somalia. Additionally, EU NAVFOR monitors fishing activity off the coast of Somalia.[mappress]Naval Today Staff, December 14, 2011; Image: eunavforcenter_img Back to overview,Home naval-today EU NAVFOR Trains African Mission in Somalia Vessel Protection Detachment Troops View post tag: Mission View post tag: Somalia View post tag: NAVFOR View post tag: protection View post tag: vessel Share this articlelast_img read more

USC sand volleyball adds Olympian to staff

first_imgWhen it comes to women’s sand volleyball, there aren’t as many players as legendary as Misty May-Treanor, who served as the volunteer assistant coach for USC’s sand volleyball program last year. This season, she’s staying home to take care of her baby girl, but there’s no need to worry for the program because of its new volunteer assistant coach for this season: two-time Olympian Dain Blanton.Head coach Anna Collier announced the exciting news for the program.“Words can’t describe just how fortunate we are to have another gold medalist come aboard,” Collier commented. “We look forward to everything he has to share and teach our team about his experience.”Blanton definitely knows a thing or two about winning. In the 2000 Sydney Games, he won gold in beach volleyball with partner Eric Fonoimoana. In 2004, he competed in the Athens Games with Jeff Nygaard, current assistant coach for undefeated USC men’s volleyball, making Blanton the first two-time male beach volleyball Olympian for Team USA.Before his Olympic success, Blanton, as a sophomore, had a key role in Pepperdine’s 1992 NCAA championship; he was also an All-American for the Waves. On the professional beach circuit, he achieved a plethora of accolades. Winning the 1997 AVP Hermosa Grand Slam made him the first male                        African-American to win a major beach volleyball event. He earned a bronze medal with Kent Steffes in the 1997 Beach Volleyball World Championships.In his successful pro career, Blanton clinched nine AVP crowns (four with Nygaard), two FIVB titles and 11 beach tournaments. In 2003, Blanton captured the title of AVP’s Best Offensive Player and he and Nygaard were crowned the AVP Team of the Year. Only a few other players can say that they’ve obtained as many championships — college, Olympics or professionally — as Blanton. His nearly unmatched success will benefit the Women of Troy immensely.Off the sand, Blanton also covers beach volleyball, NBA, MLB and college basketball and football as a TV sports broadcaster for networks such as ESPN, NBC, ABC, FOX Sports Net, Universal Sports Network and Pac-12 Networks.Not only is Blanton “a force to be reckoned with on the court,” but also he is an inspiring motivational speaker and mentor to students through GettingToGold — a nonprofit that he founded. In 1997, he created Dain’s Day at the Beach, a charity that allows urban youth to play beach volleyball.To say that Blanton is a success would be an understatement. As a coach at USC, he will no doubt share his expertise and methods to achieve success with the team. He will bring his winning mindset and intensify the team’s already victorious Trojan spirit and work ethic.Compounding the success that USC’s powerhouse program has obtained since its founding in 2012 (third place finishes nationally in 2013 and 2014, two national championship pairs in 2013 and 2014), having Blanton as a coach will continue to grow the program and solidify it as a top program for many years to come.last_img read more


Epicurean Adventure, A La Guy Fieri, Awaits At Saint Martin’s Marcus…

first_imgFacebook1Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by Saint Martin’s UniversityLACEY, WASHINGTON — As Saint Martin’s University prepares to roll out the red carpet for celebrity chef Guy Fieri, it also is readying the auction block for an impressive line-up of live auction items — all in anticipation of this Saturday’s black-tie Gala in Marcus Pavilion.A crowd of more than 550 will gather at Charneski Recreation Center and Marcus Pavilion on Nov. 3 for the University’s seventh annual Gala. Guests will indulge in five courses selected and prepared especially for the event by Fieri. And, with each course, guests will have the opportunity to bid on several unique epicurean-themed auction items, including: a private “Chef’s Table” experience provided by acclaimed culinary artists Ethan Stowell, Brendan McGill and Bob Prince; a private dinner prepared by two of Saint Martin’s beloved monks; an elaborate progressive dinner at Tom Douglas restaurants in Seattle; and a getaway to Guy Fieri’s personal vineyard in Sonoma County, California.The formal affair benefiting student scholarship funds gets underway at 7 p.m., with a pre-event reception in Charneski Recreation Center beginning at 5:30 p.m.Headlining the celebration will be the high-energy Fieri, restaurateur and host of The Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, who will entertain the crowd from the on-stage Viking kitchen. His gourmet dinner will be accompanied by specially selected wine and an exciting live auction, which has garnered recent attention for its high-profile items.Hosting the Gala is a campus-wide effort for the Saint Martin’s community, requiring the efforts of more than 150 volunteers — most of them Saint Martin’s students. Among the many volunteer responsibilities this year: social media coverage. A group of students will be providing live updates from the Gala festivities on Facebook and Twitter, using the hashtags #SMUGala and #GuyFieri; guests are invited to contribute their own updates throughout the evening.“The students enjoy this celebration, but they also take it very seriously,” explains Jonathan Hew Len, a graduate student at Saint Martin’s, who last year addressed the crowd before the record-setting Feed-A-Mind paddle-raise for student scholarships. “They understand the power of the Gala, and recognize that it is the guests’ generosity that directly supports their pursuit of a Saint Martin’s education.”Adds Hew Len, “For the student volunteers, this is an opportunity to not only give back, but to showcase some of our core values at Saint Martin’s University: hospitality, community and stewardship.”Last year’s Gala, which featured chef Mario Batali, was an unprecedented success for the University. It brought in more than $600,000, generating in excess of $150,000 alone from the paddle-raise.This year, the Gala sold out in less than an hour.Meet the Chef, a separate ticketed event with Fieri, takes place at the “new” Cebula Hall on the University’s Lacey campus from 4 to 5:30 p.m.The 2012 Gala co-chairs are Armandino ’59 and Marilyn Batali (parents of Mario Batali) and Dick ’64 and Karen Roney.Saint Martin’s University is an independent four-year, coeducational university located on a wooded campus of more than 300 acres in Lacey, Washington. Established in 1895 by the Catholic Order of Saint Benedict, the University is one of 14 Benedictine colleges and universities in the United States and Canada, and the only one west of the Rocky Mountains. Saint Martin’s University prepares students for successful lives through its 23 majors and seven graduate programs spanning the liberal arts, business, education, nursing and engineering. Saint Martin’s welcomes more than 1,100 undergraduate students and 400 graduate students from many ethnic and religious backgrounds to its Lacey campus, and 300 more undergraduate students to its extension campuses located at Joint Base Lewis-McChord and Centralia College.
