The USS New Jersey was an incredible battleship and part of the mighty Iowa class of warships. She deserves her own page in the US Navy history books for many reasons: Known as “Big J” or “Black Dragon”, USS New Jersey (BB-62) has the distinction of being one of the most decorated battleships to have served in the US Navy, while also being among the largest warships ever built. The second of Iowa-class, which were the last battleships to enter service with the United States Navy, it was designed as a “fast battleship” that could travel with a carrier force and lead the fight against the Japanese in World War II. She was also the only American battleship to provide gunfire support during the Vietnam War.

His nicknames

Often affectionately referred to by her crew as “Big J”, during WWII she was also known as the “Black Dragon” as she was painted 5-N Dark Navy Blue on both vertical and deck surfaces. Blue, 20-B, on horizontal surfaces.

dark solid color Camouflage measure 21 was employed early in the war on many small ships, including destroyers, to make them difficult to see at night. This particular color was retained from its launch until June 1945, when it was repainted into “two-tone” horizontal camouflage measure 22, which was used for the remainder of World War II.

Admirals ship

The BB-62 was designed to be a flagship, meaning it would lead United States naval fleets into battle. Her first combat action was when she served in the Fifth Fleet under Admiral Raymond A. Spruance and provided fire support during the Marshal Islands landings. Her 16-inch guns were then employed on Saipan and Tinian, while she also screened American aircraft carriers during the Battle of the Philippine Sea, where anti-aircraft fire from New Jersey and other screening vessels proved virtually impenetrable.

USS New Jersey later served as flagship of Admiral William F. Halsey’s Third Fleet and took part in the Battle of Leyte Gulf; and as part of Rear Admiral Oscar C. Badger II, commander of Battleship 7 Division, supported the assault on Iwo Jima and then Okinawa.

Highly decorated warship

It’s not just crews that win medals. Warships receive a variety of awards – highlighting the deeds of the entire crew. In total, USS New Jersey earned nine battle stars for service in World War II, another four for Korea, three for the Vietnam War, and three for action in Lebanon and the Persian Gulf region.

The warship also received the Navy Unit Commendation for Vietnam service, as well as the Presidential Unit Citation of the Republic of the Philippines and the Presidential Unit Citation of the Republic of Korea. It made her the most decorated battleship in U.S the story.

His first retreats

After World War II, many of the US Navy’s majestic battleships were broken up and sold for scrap. Luckily USS New Jersey avoided such a fate. While decommissioned, she remained in the reserve fleet and was recommissioned during the Korean War, where the BB-62 served as the flagship of Vice Admiral Harold M. Martin. On 20 May 1951, she fired her first short bombardment in the conflict and took part in several subsequent sea sorties against Communist targets.

USS New Jersey remained active until 1957, when it was decommissioned a second time. However, she was briefly called during the Vietnam War – becoming the only battleship to take part in the conflict in Southeast Asia, from 1967 to 1969. During this time, the warship fired more than 5,600 rounds with her 16-inch guns and nearly 15,000 with the guns five inches. While preparing for a second tour of Vietnam, she was ordered inactivated and decommissioned in December 1969.

Back to service again

In the early 1980s, when President Ronald Reagan called for a US Navy of 600 ships, the four Iowa-class battleships have been reactivated and improved. This included new combat systems that replaced many of the ships’ smaller five-inch guns with Harpoon anti-ship missile launchers, 32 Tomahawk cruise missiles, and four Phalanx close-in weapons systems (CIWS). USS New Jersey and her sister battleships were rearmed for late Cold War threats.

The battleship again fired her big guns in combat during the Lebanon Crisis of 1983-84 and later deployed to the Western Pacific in 1986 and 1989-90, the latter cruise extending to the Persian Gulf region. .

Registered as a museum

In 1991 she was decommissioned for the last time, and eight years later the USS New Jersey was towed from Bremerton to Philadelphia for final docking as a museum ship in Camden, New Jersey. The “Big J” was opened to the public as a museum ship on the New Jersey side of the Delaware River.

the New Jersey open like museum ship on October 15, 2001, and since then it has continued to preserve the warship’s history while being one of the most interactive museums in the country. Guided tours are available, but visitors can explore the ship and walk on more than seven different decks, which help show just how massive the battleship was – and it’s easy to see how more than 1,900 sailors could easily call the ship home.

She’s in good company – because just across the Delaware River is the flagship of the Spanish American War-era US Navy. USS Olympia (C-6), who was also preserved as a museum ship.

fight for his life

The biggest threat to the USS New Jersey is not a Japanese suicide bomber or even Russian hypersonic missiles. It was the elements of New Jersey that wreaked havoc on the ship’s deck and hull. It would cost $10,000 a day to keep the museum ship afloat on the Delaware River across from Philadelphia.

the New Jersey Battleship Memorial and Museumwhich is located on the Camden waterfront on the Delaware River across from Philadelphia, recently received a $500,000 grant from the Preserve New Jersey Historic Preservation Fund that will help renovate the bridge and do other construction work. necessary maintenance.

The father of a man who lost both his legs in a construction accident in Boston last week says he is grateful his son survived.

As Wilson Ortega was rushed to hospital in an ambulance, his father, Jose Ortega, rushed to Boston from Puerto Rico.

“I thought my world was over,” he said in Spanish when he learned his son had been seriously injured on the job.

Wilson Ortega was working on the demolition of the old Edison power plant in South Boston when a mezzanine collapsed. Her father said some of the cloth fell on her legs, but it spared her life.

Ortega was trapped in the debris for hours. At one point, Jose Ortega said his son told his colleagues who stayed with him that he couldn’t take the pain anymore, but a firefighter spoke to him, calming him down as they worked for the save.

“He whispered in her ear and told her to stay calm and everything will be fine,” Jose Ortega recalled. “He said it was like an angel from heaven.”

Wilson Ortega’s legs were amputated after the accident. Jose said his son knew right away that he would lose his legs.

“He saw the weight he had on him and knew his legs were damaged,” his father said.

The 33-year-old left the Dominican Republic for the United States three years ago with his wife and young son. His father describes him as a loving family man who spent most of his time at work and at the gym. He dreamed of building a house for his mother in Santo Domingo. From his hospital bed, Wilson sends messages of encouragement to his family.

“He says he’s going to win, he’s a fighter,” Jose Ortega said.

He says his son stays positive because he’s alive.

“If that wall had completely fallen on him, he wouldn’t be alive. He said it’s a blessing from God – God gave him an opportunity to live,” Ortega said.

Wilson Ortega will be transferred to another hospital for rehabilitation, according to his father. There, he will receive prostheses and learn to walk again.

“Our thoughts and prayers continue to be with Wilson Ortega and his family, as well as the others injured in the accident on the 776 Summer Street project,” said Suffolk Construction, the company responsible for the project. of demolition. “We have worked closely with Mr. Ortega’s employer, Northstar, to provide support and assistance to him and his family. We also continue to work with OSHA, our business partners and local authorities to “Determining the cause of the accident. Ensuring that our worksites are safe and that our workers return home safely to their loved ones every day is our number one priority and always will be.”

Chad Blair: Why Micronesian Students Are Fighting in Hawaii https://faaeeantrapologia.com/chad-blair-why-micronesian-students-are-fighting-in-hawaii/ Wed, 11 May 2022 10:25:12 +0000 https://faaeeantrapologia.com/chad-blair-why-micronesian-students-are-fighting-in-hawaii/ When I was a graduate student at UH Manoa in the 1990s, I once asked a professor if all the studies produced in academia were worth much in the “real world.” Does anyone read them?

When I was a graduate student at UH Manoa in the 1990s, I once asked a professor if all the studies produced in academia were worth much in the “real world.”

Does anyone read them? Do they have an impact?

The professor paused, looked up at me, then explained in detail to me and my classmates how the work produced by academics is indeed making a difference outside of the ivory towers and not just staying in an obscure journal not read by the masses. .

I was thinking about this episode when two UH professors forwarded me a 20-page research dissertation that will be published online later this month. Titled “Racism and Discrimination Against Micronesian Students in Hawaii,” it was produced by the Hawaii Scholars for Education and Social Justice.

The new report focuses on concerns about the “educational attainment, experiences, and challenges” faced by Micronesian students in Hawaii’s public school system, particularly at the K-12 level.

The report refers to the three Micronesian countries that are part of the Pact of Free Association treaties with the United States. Residents of the Republic of Palau, the Republic of the Marshall Islands, and the Federated States of Micronesia are permitted under the treaty to live and work in the United States indefinitely without a visa.

Among the conclusions are the following:

  • Between 2013 and 2018, only 50% of students in Micronesia who entered ninth grade four years earlier graduated from high school.
  • 43% dropped out before graduating, compared to the state’s overall graduation rate of 86%.
  • The Ministry of Education has an insufficient number of qualified English teachers and bilingual home helpers.
  • Racism and stereotyping evident in schools “may have contributed” to student dropout and dropout.
  • Reports indicate that racial stereotyping comes not just from other students, but also from school officials and teachers.
  • Some families in Micronesia said they felt students were effectively being “kicked out” of schools.

The primary reasons for Micronesians’ experience in Hawaii’s public schools are systemic racism and inequality.

Cultural expert Manto Samuel weaves baskets of coconut fronds with Washington Middle School students.
School officials and non-profit organizations have tried to help students in Micronesia by promoting cultural initiatives, such as basket weaving classes. Cory Lum/Civil Beat/2021

The report’s findings will come as no surprise to readers of Civil Beat, which has devoted and continues to devote much attention to the greater Pacific and the people of Palau, the Marshalls and the FSM.

Their evolutionary history is important to all of us in Hawaii.

A key lesson from the research note is the importance of the role of grassroots organizations in helping Micronesians navigate their way through Hawaii’s sometimes byzantine health, education, and social service systems. To name just two: The Marshallese Community Organization of Hawaii and Chuuk Me Nessor (Chuukese Language and Cultural School).

Importantly, the research note also identifies policy recommendations, including these:

  • The Legislature should support improved language access for the State of Hawaii.
  • The DOE must address disparities among students who are disciplined.
  • UH should develop college recruitment activities that target students from COFA countries in public middle and high schools.
  • The Honolulu Police Department must end its practice of racially profiling COFA citizens.

The research paper ends with this statement: “Finally, while not a policy recommendation, HSESJ strongly encourages Hawaiians to affirm their commitment to living in a multicultural society by extending the values ​​of aloha, equality, inclusion and social justice to the COFA community. This individual and collective initiative can start by not spreading “Micronesian” jokes and racial slurs and promoting a sense of aloha for COFA citizens in Hawaii.

Context is key

What’s also helpful about the research record is that it provides historical and cultural context to help Hawaiians better understand Micronesians — and perhaps become more welcoming to them.

I guess many of us didn’t know or appreciate, for example, that there are at least 18 distinct languages ​​and many dialects among the three COFA nations. Clothing, cultural and political structures, and religions differ between the island groups.

The people of Micronesia also experienced over a century of colonial rule under the Spaniards, Germans, Japanese and Americans. “The Spaniards brought Catholicism, and the Germans brought Protestantism, both of which continue to have strong roots in different island groups,” the report explains, citing the work of FX Hezel.

The history of the region is also ancient, having probably been settled by people from Southeast Asia around 40,000 years ago.

The HSESJ is a voluntary, nonprofit organization of Hawaiian scholars that emerged four years ago to conduct, review, and disseminate research related to education and social justice on the islands.

U.S. DOE Table of Missed School Days for

I spoke to two of the members who are also co-authors of the research paper (the others are Katherine T. Ratliffe and Margary Martin). Both stressed the importance of understanding that their work was being done within a framework of systemic racism.

Jonathan Y. Okamura, professor emeritus of ethnic studies at UH Manoa, said this framework is formed by what he calls “relevant dimensions” that are “quite evident in Hawaii” – in particular, discriminatory policies, racist stereotypes and socio-economic inequalities.

“And we can see how they work together to keep COFA citizens in this very oppressed status that they have,” he explained.

Brook Chapman de Sousa, associate professor in the primary education and multilingual learning program at the university’s Teacher Education Institute, agrees. And she shares Okamura’s desire for the work to have – well, impact.

“This work has been going on for a long time, and I hope it can bring awareness or system-wide change,” she said.

But progress in improving the educational attainment of Micronesians in Hawaii has been slow.

Okamura pointed out that there were only 25 Micronesian undergraduate students at Manoa in fall 2021, a campus that has nearly 11,000 undergraduate students. And de Sousa said there was only one Micronesian teacher candidate in pre-service training at the College of Education in fall 2021, when enrollment was nearly 2,000 students.

“We know that having a diverse faculty population benefits all students, especially our culturally and linguistically diverse students,” she said. “Having more teachers from Micronesia will benefit all of our students, especially those from Micronesia.”

Key to this, she said, is more state funding, such as for bilingual education. And Okamura says the authors of the research brief are happy to make themselves available to speak to various government agencies and the legislature about implementing their recommendations.

The enormous challenges facing COFA students in Hawaii are not going away. The murder of Iremamber Sykap by three Honolulu police officers last year and the grand jury and court’s dismissal of their murder charges shocked Micronesians and their supporters who felt justice had not been served. At the same time, emboldened critics of Micronesian immigration argue that immigrant groups need to better assimilate and abide by US laws.

And so the work continues – in universities, in government, in communities and in journalism.

Salem Maritime National Historic Site Announces Installation of Faceless Dominican Dolls, a bilingual exhibit (English/Spanish) on display May 7 through June 30, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Salem Armory Regional Visitor Center, 2 New Liberty Street in Salem. Co-created with the North Shore Community Development Coalition (North Shore CDC), the exhibit celebrates Salem’s global connections and Caribbean culture with artwork and stories from residents of the Point neighborhood (also known as name of El Punto).

Faceless Dominican Dolls
the inspiration comes from a popular craft from the Dominican Republic, Muñecas Limé. These small faceless ceramic figures symbolize Dominican women, culture and diversity. “Faceless Dominican Dolls fosters a connection with new and existing audiences to find cultural relevance to the site, particularly with Essex County’s Latinx community,” said Susan Russo, Visitor Experience and Community Engagement Program Manager.

“We are grateful for this partnership with Salem Maritime,” said Mickey Northcutt, General Manager of North Shore CDC. “The exhibit pays homage to the beautiful cultural significance of faceless Dominican dolls and members of the Dominican community in Salem.”

“This exhibit is special because it offers people from all walks of life, who are familiar with these dolls or seeing them for the first time, the opportunity to share their own stories through creative expression,” said Yinette Guzman, Design & Placemaking Project Manager at North Shore CDC. “These new works of art continue the tradition of Muñecas Limé and represent the identity and cultural heritage of each artist.”

The North Shore CDC selected nineteen paper dolls and three artist stories for Faceless Dominican Dolls. With biographies, poems, and personalized paper dolls, the exhibit shares Salem’s stories of migration, heritage, and intersecting identities. The exhibit’s co-creators invite visitors to share their own stories on interactive panels with questions centered around self-discovery and community.

The National Park Service gives special thanks to the Latino Heritage Internship Program (LHIP). Faceless Dominican Dolls follows a 2021 exhibition proposal and series of online resources developed by LHIP interns Tahmoor Chadury and Karla Bonilla. Visitors are welcome to explore further and create their own faceless paper doll by visiting www.nps.gov/articles/000/faceless-dolls.htm.

US President Joe Biden announced additional security assistance for Ukraine, which includes “additional artillery munitions, radars and other equipment”. Biden said in the statement that the United States has provided a “historic amount” of security assistance to Ukraine at a rapid pace. He said the United States had sent weapons and equipment that had been approved by Congress directly to the “front lines of freedom in Ukraine”. Biden said with today’s announcement, the US administration has nearly exhausted funding that could be used to provide security assistance to Ukraine. He stressed that the international community must continue to supply arms and military equipment to Ukraine without any interruption.

“Today, the United States continues its strong support for the brave people of Ukraine as they defend their country against continued Russian aggression. I am announcing another security assistance package that will provide ammunition to additional artillery, radar and other equipment to Ukraine,” Biden said in the statement.

“For Ukraine to succeed in this next phase of the war, its international partners, including the United States, must continue to demonstrate our unity and our determination to continue to bring arms and ammunition to Ukraine, without Congress should quickly provide the requested funding to strengthen Ukraine on the battlefield and at the negotiating table,” Joe Biden added in the statement.

In a key development guaranteed to delight tennis fans, ace player Rafael Nadal makes his return from injury while competing in the ongoing Madrid Masters tournament. It will be his first tournament since losing to Taylor Fritz in the Indian Wells final in mid-March. However, before the former world number 1 stepped onto the court at the Madrid Open, he made a special request to the organizers.

Madrid Open: Rafael Nadal wants to change match times

According to express.co.uk, Rafael Nadal has asked Madrid Open director Feliciano Lopez to schedule his Round of 16 match for Wednesday morning. The report states that Rafael Nadal has made the request in order to attend the Manchester City vs Real Madrid UCL semi-final at the Santiago Bernabeu on the same night. Real Madrid are currently trailing Manchester City 3-4 after the first leg at the Etihad Stadium. The La Liga champions would like to win the game at home. The Australian Open champion is a Real Madrid fan and was seen recently during Real Madrid’s game against Espanyol which the La Liga champions won 4-0. He stayed in the boxes to watch the game unfold.

Feliciano Lopez, who is the manager of the Madrid Masters, has confirmed his request after himself admitting that he would like to go to the Manchester City vs Real Madrid Champions League tie. The report states that Rafael Nadal also plans to watch the match. He said: “It’s been a long time since I’ve been to the Bernabeu and this is a game I would love to attend. Let’s see if I can escape to see the game against Manchester City.” He added that Rafael Nadal wanted to play during the day in Madrid so the ball would bounce higher, but with the semi-final he joked that he wouldn’t play at night.”

The U.S. military has worked actively to remove references to Confederacy and Confederate leaders in recent years, but that has not always been the case. Just over 50 years after the Civil War ended, parts of the United States were still embracing that troubled past.

By the time the United States entered World War I, veterans on both sides of the Civil War were largely elderly. An 18-year-old who enlisted in 1861 would be 74 in 1917, the year the United States entered the Great War.

Even so, the US military wanted to bring something uniquely American to the European trenches. The commander of a particular unit in the southern army wanted his men to use the Confederate rebel cry to “sow terror into the hearts of the enemy”. And they needed the help of Confederate Civil War veterans to do it.

A 1916 reunion of Confederate Civil War veterans at the Tutwiler Hotel in Birmingham, Alabama.

Fort Gordon near Atlanta, Georgia (named after a Confederate general) was known as Camp Gordon during the build-up to World War I. It was used as a training camp for many of the 2.8 million men who were drafted to serve in the war.

It was first opened in July 1917 and became the training ground for the 82nd Division, later known as the 82nd Airborne Division, when soldiers could actually fly. The camp operated from 1917 to 1919 and trained many conscripts from Georgia.

The man installed to oversee the formation of the 82nd Division at Camp Gordon was General Eben Swift, a veteran of the Spanish–American War and the Pancho Villa expedition and former principal of the Army War College.

Swift wanted to surprise the Germans with a special surprise when the American army arrived and began to fight in the trenches. He wanted to teach the 82nd Division the “Rebel Yell”, a battle cry used by Confederate soldiers when charging Union lines during the Civil War.

He met with Federal Judge William T. Newman of Atlanta, a former Confederate soldier who was still in contact with a company of his fellow veterans in Georgia, to teach the battle cry to new soldiers of the 82nd.

“I want my men to have learned the rebel cry for their use in France,” Swift told the Times-Dispatcha newspaper from Richmond, Virginia, in 1917. “I met Judge Newman and suggested that the rebel cry wouldn’t sound bad when we meet the Germans. Our boys will use it when they get over the top.”

Although there are no recordings of the shout used during the Civil War era, there are recordings of Confederate veterans performing the shout at meetings years later. The video below is from Smithsonian Magazine:

According to the article, Newman did all he could to round up the elderly veterans at Camp Gordon to teach the troops the “bloody” battle cry. Union veterans remarked that the Rebel Shout was effective on the battlefield, saying “if you pretend you heard it and weren’t scared, that means you didn’t. have never heard”.

Swift expected the use of the Rebel Yell to spread throughout the Army once the 82nd began using it, and the service adopted the Confederate tradition for the foreseeable future. Instead, he died with the last of the Confederacy’s remaining veterans.

Veteran Brazilian defender Marcelo won his 24th title with Real Madrid on Saturday, becoming the club’s most awarded player.

The left-back started in the 4-0 home win over Espanyol which helped Madrid lift the Spanish league.

Marcelo, 33, was tied on the club’s trophy list with the great Francisco “Paco” Gento, whose heyday was the 1950s and 1960s. He died this year aged 88.

Marcelo lifted his 23rd trophy with the club in January, when Madrid lifted the Spanish Super Cup days before Gento’s death.

Marcelo has lost his starting spot this season and hasn’t played often. He was in the starting line-up on Saturday, however, as manager Carlo Ancelotti rested most of the regular starters ahead of the Champions League semi-final against Manchester City next week.

Marcelo gave his compatriot Rodrygo the pass to open the scoring against Espanyol in the 33rd minute at the Santiago Bernabéu. Rodrygo added with a header in the 43rd, Marco Asensio scored in the 55th and substitute Karim Benzema closed the scoring in the 81st.

It was the sixth Spanish league crown for Marcelo, who also has four Champions Leagues, four Club World Cups, three UEFA Super Cups, two Copa del Reys and five Spanish Super Cups.

Marcelo also won a Confederations Cup and two Olympic medals with Brazil.

He joined Madrid from Brazilian club Fluminense in 2006 to succeed Brazilian great Roberto Carlos on the left flank.

Marcelo’s former Brazilian teammate Dani Alves has the most career titles with 41, most of them with Barcelona.

Former Madrid defender Sergio Ramos won 22 titles with the Spanish club.

Benzema won his 21st trophy with Madrid on Saturday.
