NAVSUP FLC Norfolk Helps Comfort Get Underway for New York

Pensacola, fl

Sailors and civilians from NAVSUP Fleet Logistics Center (FLC) Norfolk provided logistics support to USNS Comfort (T-AH 20) prior to the hospital ship getting underway for New York March 28.

NAVSUP FLC Norfolk provided food, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies, linens and fuel to the ship in the week prior to its departure.

According to NAVSUP FLC Norfolk Logistics Supply Officer Lt. Cmdr. Chris Sands, the command assisted in Comfort receiving 286 pallet of food provisions, valued at nearly $700 thousand dollars. In addition, the command delivered more than 500 thousand gallons of fuel via barge to Comfort.

Sands cited Logistics Support Representatives (LSRs) Victor Rodriguez and Keith Durham for their efforts in ensuring the crew of Comfort had what they needed to get underway. LSRs are an experienced source of support, with the ability to work with many other divisions and commands to ensure our customers receive the materials and provisions they need to execute missions efficiently and on-time.

“This allows the ship to free-up personnel to concentrate on other initiatives, whether it is training, or supporting an influx of personnel as in the case with Comfort,” Sands explained. “LSRs are capable in a dynamic environment, regardless of the mission, they can adapt and deliver a multitude of products to the customer.

He added that Comfort provides a unique challenge due to the ship’s need for medical supplies and pharmaceuticals, due to the need to coordinate with more entities than normal provisions.

“This contributed to a challenging and fluid environment,” he added.

NAVSUP FLC Norfolk Fuels Department Director Kevin Henderson added that his team of Sailors, civilians and contractors take great pride in their role in supporting the Department of Defense effort to help fight COVID-19 in a very visible way by providing the fuel that powered Comfort’s trip from Norfolk to New York.

“I am proud of their effort and happy to be part of this amazing team,” Henderson said.

While in New York, the ship is serving as a referral hospital for non-COVID-19 patients currently admitted to shore-based hospitals, providing a full spectrum of medical care to include general surgeries, critical care and ward care for adults. This allows local health professionals to focus on treating COVID-19 patients and for shore-based hospitals to use their Intensive Care Units and ventilators for those patients.  

NAVSUP FLC Norfolk is one of eight FLCs under Commander, NAVSUP. Headquartered in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania, and employing a diverse, worldwide workforce of more than 22,500 military and civilian personnel, NAVSUP’s mission is to provide supplies, services, and quality-of-life support to the Navy and joint warfighter.

Publix offers shoppers a non-contact payment option

Pensacola, Florida

Publix shoppers can now pay to buy groceries with “Pay In Contact.

While many stores already offer the option, Publix offers the option of mobile payment.

“In these unprecedented times, we have recognized the need to make our customers’ trips to our stores faster and more efficient,” said Publix CEO Todd Jones.

By speeding up this payment option, we will help customers reduce connection to commonly used surfaces such as PIN panels.

Customers can place their smartphones, credit or debit cards that support payment without contact near a device instead of passing a card or inserting it into the pin board.

All locations, including the GreenWise Marketplace, are expected to receive a non-contact payment by April 4.

Customers can continue to pay using the existing mobile payment option through the Publix app.

This is one of many ways Publix has worked to preserve the health and well-being of its customers and employees. Other actions taken include, but are not limited to, increasing sterilization efforts throughout the store, installing mesh glass shields in all records, reducing store hours to allow additional time to clean the store, enacting shopping hours intended for those aged 65 and over, installing Signs and floor markings to impose a six-foot distance between shoppers, give employees options to wear gloves and masks, and implement an emergency epidemiological fee for full-time and part-time affiliates who exhibit or are diagnosed with the symptoms of the Coronavirus.

Money heist season 4, coming soon

Pensacola, fl

Money Heist’ part 4 sees the heist crew back in the casa to mint some more of the drama and thrills they’re best known for serving. After 3 runs, the show’s winning formula still seems to work. With a team stuck in the bank to save, a Dali-masked revolution outside and the increasing tension, will the crew survive another money heist? And will the show survive the new season curse?

Money Heist titled La Casa de Papel in Spanish is one of those shows you shouldn’t bother watching if you haven’t watched it from the beginning. The gripping show is like an extended heist movie except it gets pacier with every episode.

And they kept it up for 3 seasons straight which is rather impressive.

To Netflixers it is the highest viewed, if not the only viewed Spanish language show. Money Heist, created by Álex Pina is down to its 4th season with the Professor and his masked/unmasked crew having completed a successful heist at the Royal Mint of Spain have made a comeback to mint some more of the drama and thrills they’re best known for serving. That being said, it has been a while since we saw The Professor (Álvaro Morte) and his criminal ensemble. Rio (Miguel Herrán), Tokyo (Úrsula Corberó), Helsinki (Darko Perić), Nairobi (Alba Flores), Denver (Jaime Lorente), Stockholm (Esther Acebo) etc. back in action donning Dali masks.

For a quick memory jog, while Part 2 ended after the completion of the heist of the Royal Mint with the team splitting up to avoid getting caught by the police. Rio breaks rules a little early by trying to contact Tokyo in Part 3. All hell breaks loose when Rio is taken in by the police while Tokyo gets the team to reunite to save him.

The reunion comes with The Professor introducing the team to new member Palermo an old friend of Martin’s. Post the heartfelt reunion, the team is back to its usual grind in the Bank where they successfully rescue Rio. But it isn’t a happy ending. By the finale of the season, Nairobi gets shot after being lured towards the window in hopes of seeing her son, taking a critical hit. The much in love (with the Professor) Raquel (Itziar Ituño), now Lisbon, gets captured by cops for being in cahoots with the heist man. To end it on a cliffhanger, Sierra (Najwa Nimri), the replacement interrogation expert made her capture seem like an execution.

And it just looked like the beginning of the Professor’s mental and emotional breakdown. With a team stuck in the Bank to save, a Dali-masked revolution outside and the increasing tension, will the crew survive another money heist?

I’ve been following Casa de Papel for a while now and I have no shame in admitting that I watched all of Season 3 in a day binge-watching from start to finish. The comeback curse seemed to have failed and unlike many shows that fail to create the magic of their initial run, this one seemed to be exempt to that law. Season 4 was watched in a similar fashion in quick succession. While I won’t get into the details of the whole season, I watched the premiere and the first 4 episodes for the review so that you don’t have to. Is Money Heist Season 4 worth watching? Read on before you settle in with high probability of avoiding other important quarantine business-

Money Heist Part 4 begins with some really twisty sequences. On one hand, Nairobi is being desperately pushed into surgery to remove the bullet that went through her chest. On the other, the Professor has his own wounded heart to worry about on his escape from the police who are out all-guns-blazing looking for him the forest where he initially planned his escape with Lisbon.

With the presumed death of his beloved on his mind, his part of the plan seems to be failing already. Back in the bank, its business as usual, except new entrant and designated leader Palmero and Tokyo are about to have a power struggle.

Tokyo wants to rely on her gut, the same instincts that have repeatedly gotten the gang in trouble. In the same casa, Rio is dealing with his break-up with Tokyo and his trauma from being tortured by the police. Denver is also struggling with his own trauma and is prone to lashing out. It’s safe to say that none of the members are doing alright. Matters of the heart are getting messier, the plan is falling apart and the cops aided by Sierra are quickly gaining on the crew.

What really works for Money Heist is the constant state of curiosity it puts you in. Like those in action on screen, you’re drawn into nail-biting suspense. You will also find yourself forgetting who the bad guys are, something the show plays with, another thing that works. Part 4 is more of a continuation of the winning formula.

To me, the premiere still felt different because the Professor is different. For the first time we see the mastermind dealing with emotional turmoil, backed into a corner and desperate to improvise, something that his scheming brain hasn’t done in years. We’re repeatedly told that the heist plan has been in the works for years and only those who have been invested in it for years get to call the shots.

And yet it’s the reckless Tokyo trying to call the shots inside the Bank and it’s the professor’s improvising heart making decisions on the outside. Roles have been reversed, temperaments have changed within the characters and so have the dynamics in the police tent perched firmly in place to monitor the Bank as usual. The arm twisting here is fun to watch and I have a feeling it’ll never get old. That being said, the first few episodes is also where I witnessed my first predictions coming true. Is Money Heist getting rusty in its bid to keep the heist extension going? Not in the first 5 episodes. The rest, only the finale will unfold.

Before COVID-19, U.S. Naval War College War Game Examined Epidemic Response

Pensacola, Florida

 In September 2019, months before COVID-19 became a household term, the U.S. Naval War College co-sponsored a “war” game that looked at how to battle to a rapidly spreading infectious disease in a major urban area.

The lessons of that game, Urban Outbreak 19, now may be more important than ever, as the world’s governments struggle to slow the COVID-19 infection rate.

“We brought some of the very best people who are currently responding to the coronavirus together to play out this scenario before it happened,” said Benjamin Davies, the game’s designer at the Naval War College.

“Now we have a huge data set that allows us to really examine what the experts think they need to be effective in fighting a pandemic,” Davies said.

Some key findings were that nongovernmental organizations were willing to accept higher risk for their personnel than military commands and that local government and local authorities remained the primary agents for a successful response.

Another finding focused on disagreement about the realities of quarantine. While some players viewed forced mass quarantine as an obvious political reality, many medical professionals said that it could drive the infected underground and actually spread the disease faster.

It was instructive to watch the interplay of arguments in the quarantine example, Davies said.

“We had people say that, naturally, we’re going to go into enforced mass quarantine. Other people said, you absolutely shouldn’t for this disease because it will be harder to find the infected,” Davies said. “So now we have different opinions. Does this mean we know whether or not to quarantine? Probably not. But does it mean we’re a little smarter about the things we’re going to face if we do? Yes.

The other sponsors of the two-day event were the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences-National Center for Disaster Medicine and Public Health and Johns Hopkins University’s Applied Physics Lab, whose Laurel, Maryland, site hosted the gathering.

“The skill sets and the knowledge were just so diverse – everything from government agencies to the military and the private sector,” said Alexander Soukhanov, a maritime shipping agency executive who played the role of a civilian logistics company owner in the game.

“And it showed that over two days, we could work together. I think that’s No. 1,” he said. “And I say that because, as one of the private-sector people in attendance, time and speed is absolutely No. 1. And in order to respond with time and speed, you have to have relationships and mechanisms in place to plug into.”

The game’s scenario involved a fictional nation of 21 million people hit by a rapidly spreading disease that can lead to respiratory failure and death. The players were told to coordinate initial and ongoing responses and then a transition to post-crisis conditions.

One difference from the COVID-19 crisis is that the game envisioned a multinational response to a serious disease outbreak in a developing country – such as Ebola in parts of Africa – not the current worldwide pandemic.

The participants were 50 people with experience in humanitarian response situations. They came from U.S. and international militaries, humanitarian nongovernmental organizations, the U.S. government, international agencies and the private sector.

Hank Brightman, professor and EMC Informationist Chair in the Naval War College’s Civilian-Military Humanitarian Response Program, noted that the Urban Outbreak game is not predictive of what might happen with COVID-19 or any other health epidemic. However, the issues analyzed in games such as this can be helpful to officials facing real-life decisions.

“War games are informative because you are bringing in groups of stakeholders that then work through decision processes, and those decision processes have value because they are informative to key decision-makers,” said Brightman, who was the game’s lead facilitator and served on the development team.

“As decisionmakers look at different courses of actions, they have underlying information that can help them make more informed choices,” he said.

The idea for Urban Outbreak 19 came from a civilian-military humanitarian response workshop hosted at Brown University in 2018. Participants said they wanted a better understanding of the challenges posed by the 2014 Ebola outbreak in West Africa and its 2018 spread in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The results of Urban Outbreak 19 were scheduled to be discussed at a follow-on workshop this month, but the COVID-19 risk forced officials to postpone that gathering until this summer.

“I think it’s safe to say that the desire and expectation is to keep gaming in this arena so we can continue to expand understanding,” Brightman said.

Walmart begins checking COVID-19 for employees

Pensacola, fl

Walmart begins examining employees for symptoms of COVID-19

Walmart announced on Tuesday the expansion of affiliated health and temperature checks at all of their stores.

The retail giant operates 11,500 stores under 56 banners in 27 countries. Of the 2.5 million colleagues worldwide, 1.5 million work in the United States.

Before the helpers start their seizures. If the fellow has a fever of 100 degrees or higher, or the company has answered “Yes” to the examination questionnaire, the fellow will be required to return home with remuneration until symptoms have subsided for a period of not less than three days after the fever has broken down or the necessary COVID-19 protocols have passed.

Walmart is in the process of sending infrared thermometers to all locations, which may take up to three weeks.

Walmart says that many colleagues have already taken their temperatures home. The company office asks them to continue this practice as well as look for other symptoms of the virus (such as coughing, feeling pain and difficulty breathing) and not coming to work when they don’t feel well.

Walmart’s COVID-19 emergency leave policy allows colleagues to stay indoors if they have any symptoms, concerns, or illnesses related to COVID-19 or have been isolated – knowing that their jobs will be protected.

Although the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) does not recommend healthy people to wear masks or gloves, Walmart offers her colleagues the option and will provide masks and gloves on request.

The company expects to provide these materials to the facilities, and it will take about three weeks for these health initiatives to take effect.

Last week, Walmart began installing glass barriers (sneezing guards) in pharmacy corridors at both Walmart and Sam’s Club sites. The company will install these guards in regular Walmart records for the next two to three weeks.

Walmart also installed floor decals on entrances and exit lanes, making it easier for customers to judge the appropriate social distance from each other.

Walmart keeps in touch with the CDC, as well as state and local health departments regarding safe practices in stores and takes any and all measures to ensure the well-being of clients and associates.

These steps include providing up-to-date affiliate protocols through videos and photos, as well as cleaning schedules to help provide clear guidance. They have an active voice app called Ask Sam Associates that can be used to request cleaning guides for any area of ​​the store. Department stores modified their working hours from 7 in the morning until 8:30 in the evening to help the assistants to re-store the shelves while continuing to clean and sterilize the building.

Throughout March, Walmart also provided colleagues with special cash rewards, first-quarter expedited bonuses, and immediate access to their salaries. During June, nationwide affiliates * will get free access to Even, a third-party mobile app that provides financial health features to help partners set budget and savings, as well as instant access to 50% of their net wages earned per week Basis.

Currently, the majority of Walmart colleagues and family members have daily access to remote doctor visits of $ 4. The company waives fees for plan members, giving them access to medical and behavioral health services at no cost to them.

In addition, participants and their families can get free support for mental wellbeing or life concerns 24/7 with Resources for Living, which includes three behavioral counseling sessions at no cost.
