Argentina’s and Chile’s Joint Staffs are carrying out the combined exercise “Southern Cross I” from November 5 – 9 in the city of Bahía Blanca, Argentina. As part of the exercise there will be simulations of activities carried out by the Peace Force, including: civil riots, food delivery to the population, assistance to wounded people, negotiation, and management in road control points, among others. The goal is to test the joint combined operational capacity in the potential deployment of a peace operation and to improve information exchange capacities between both countries and other entities. The Chilean force consists of an Army SA 330 L “Puma” helicopter and Marine Corps personnel from the Navy, as well as members from the Chilean Joint Staff and delegates from the three branches of the country’s Armed Forces. The exercise will end on November 9, with a demonstration in which the Defense Ministers and Chiefs of the Joint Staff from both countries will be present. Officers from the Brazilian Armed Forces’ Joint Staff will also attend the military exercise as observers as an initial step to establish the possible inclusion of Brazil as member of the peace force.

… Warner 128 not out, Finch 110 unbeatenDAVID Warner and Aaron Finch have powered Australia to their biggest-ever ODI win in India, thrashing the hosts by 10 wickets in the series opener in Mumbai.Warner and Finch both scored centuries in the largest partnership against India in one-day cricket, for any wicket anywhere in the world, as they easily chased down their target of 255 with 12.2 overs to spare.Warner finished on 128 from 112 balls, while Finch was unbeaten on 110 from 114.The result kept Australia’s unbeaten summer alive, after they cruised through six Twenty20s and five Tests at home without losing a match.But in a summer of maulings, this was close to the biggest.After Mitchell Starc took three wickets and Pat Cummins bowled superbly for 2-44, Warner and Finch put on a show in the first of the three ODIs.It marked just the fifth time in history that two Australian openers have both scored centuries in the same game, and it’s the team’s first-ever 10-wicket win in India.Finch started the faster of the pair, as he put any width away through the off-side early, before his opening partner launched a brutal attack on India’s bowlers.Warner hit 17 fours and three sixes in his knock, bringing up his hundred in just 88 balls.The left-hander was powerful all around the ground, drastically upping the scoring rate from a World Cup last year where he also hit three centuries.It was his fifth triple-figure score of the summer, with his record across all formats now 1 193 runs at an average of 170.42Meanwhile, it marked the fourth century opening stand between the pair in the past year, after they also tore apart the World Cup.Finch brought up his century off 107 balls, with 12 of his 13 boundaries coming through the off-side, while he also whacked Kuldeep Yadav for a massive six back over his head.Starc had earlier taken 3-56 for the Aussies with the ball, while Cummins was arguably their best bowler as he took the key wicket of Shikhar Dhawan for 75.Dhawan had lived a charmed life – with chances missed on one, 31 and 55 – before he fell caught at cover as part of a collapse that derailed India’s innings.Adam Zampa (1-53) also got Virat Kohli caught and bowled for 16, as India lost 4-30 after being in a dominant position at 1-132 after 27 overs.It marked the sixth time in Zampa’s international career that he has removed the Indian superstar, by far his best record against any batsman.Kane Richardson also finished with 2-43 from 9.1 overs after being picked ahead of Josh Hazlewood.Marnus Labuschagne had the quietest possible debut, not required to bat or bowl in the win.

Published on January 31, 2014 at 5:01 am Much debate has been made of this year’s class of talented freshmen. Syracuse’s Tyler Ennis and Duke’s Jabari Parker are two of them – arguably the two best – and Daily Orange beat writers Stephen Bailey and David Wilson make their respective arguments for the two rookies. See Stephen’s case for Ennis here. A week of conference play had gone by and something had gone horribly wrong for Duke.The Atlantic Coast Conference’s premier team was somehow only 1-2. Jabari Parker, its superstar freshman — the one who topped Wooden Award watch lists just weeks earlier — had suddenly become human.Maybe he was taking bad shots. Maybe he wasn’t multi-dimensional enough. Maybe his pedestrian defense had come back to haunt him — the basketball gods don’t like stuff like that.While the rest of the nation was relishing in the Blue Devils’ struggles, the 18-year-old forward would be tasked with righting the fast-sinking ship.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDuke topped Virginia in its next game to pull to .500 without much help from Parker, but it wasn’t a particularly impressive Blue Devil performance. Then North Carolina State came to town.Everything that Parker had failed to do well during the first four games of ACC play, he fixed against the Wolfpack. He scored 23 points, his most in 2014. He shot 50 percent from the field and drilled both of his 3-point attempts. He grabbed seven rebounds. He even played a little bit of defense, and Duke won 95-60.“Changing habits is not easy, especially when you’re so successful with those other habits,” Duke head coach Mike Krzyzewski said after the game. “Today he really attacked.”Passiveness plagued his game for a couple of weeks, but when he’s playing active there’s no other freshman like him. He plays with the confidence of a senior and the skill of an NBA player. Even with Tyler Ennis, Joel Embiid, Andrew Wiggins and Julius Randle in this freshman class, Parker has consistently stood above the rest.He already outperformed Embiid and Wiggins with 27 points in a loss back in November, and Saturday is another prime opportunity to prove his rookie superiority. No. 17 Duke (17-4, 6-2 ACC) might not beat No. 2 Syracuse (20-0, 7-0) when they square off at 6:30 p.m. in the Carrier Dome, but with another chance against a star freshman in front of a national audience, he’ll remind everyone why he, and not Ennis, was the one with all the hype.Ennis has snatched some of those headlines away for two reasons. The first is how he seems to just keep getting better all season long.To put it in football terms, because the point guard position is so often compared to quarterback, at the beginning of the year he was a “game manager.”Now he’s also the closer.Parker’s been that all season long. Only twice this year has he been held to single digits, and never fewer than seven. Ennis has scored in single figures four times and was even shut out in 32 minutes against Eastern Michigan on New Year’s Eve.“Jabari’s one of the best players in the country,” Ennis said after the Orange’s 67-57 win against Wake Forest on Wednesday. “We’ll have to key in on him because he gets them going.”The second is Ennis’ clutch play. During SU’s win against the Demon Deacons, Ennis scored just two points in the first half and trailed during the second. The guard awoke and finished with 18.“I’ve been hearing real good things about him,” Parker said during the week. “He’s one of the big playmakers for their team.”The Blue Devils have largely avoided the need for Parker’s clutch play.Only three of Duke’s wins have come by single digits. He was benched for the end of the Blue Devils’ narrow loss to Notre Dame, but his consistent play has outweighed his relative deficiencies in the clutch.There’s good reasoning behind all the Ennis praise — a point guard is more valuable than a small forward — but almost every number points in Parker’s favor. He’s averaging 18.8 points to Ennis’ 12.3 and grabbing more than eight boards per game. He’s even shooting a higher percentage than Ennis despite the second highest usage (32.6) in the conference.For comparison’s sake, Ennis’ usage rate (20) ranks fourth on his own team among players who have played in at least 13 games. C.J. Fair’s 27.6 is eighth in the ACC.Their roles are different, and Ennis’ value is incredible to the Orange, but Parker’s game should be a familiar sight for Syracuse fans. There have been better freshmen than Carmelo Anthony, but Parker embraces comparisons to the one-and-done who brought SU its only national championship.After Saturday, maybe Orange fans will see that, too.David Wilson is a staff writer for The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Submitted by Ballet NorthwestFor the fourth year, young choreographers from Olympia’s Ballet Northwest will surprise and delight the audience at the Young Choreographers Showcase (YCS) on August 23, 2015 at 7 p.m. at the Kenneth J. Minnaert Center for the Arts on the South Puget Sound Community College campus, an event created to allow Company dancers to explore creativity and leadership in dance.This year the event will showcase original productions from 12 choreographers. Ten are dancers from Ballet Northwest who range in age from 13 to 18. The other two are Ballet Northwest alumni who are currently studying at Cornish College of the Arts in Seattle and the Joffrey Academy of Dance in Chicago.At the event, audiences will encounter dances in variety of styles, including ballet, modern dance and jazz. Choreographers get to take advantage of a professional stage and lighting. “This is the second year we’ll have the event at the Minnaert Center, which is a beautiful venue for dance,” said Josie Johnson, Co-Artistic Director at Ballet Northwest.Created in 2012, YCS gives the dancers at the Company an opportunity to create their own choreography, explore creativity and produce their own work. “Our dancers were getting more and more comfortable in different dance styles and were starting to show an interest in choreography. We saw the talent developing, so we created the Showcase to give these dancers the opportunity to stage their creativity,” said Ken Johnson, Co-Artistic Director at Ballet Northwest.In order to participate in the event, dancers had to submit an application outlining why they wanted to participate, the style of music they would use as well as how many dancers they would need to stage their production. Next, choreographers attended Choreography Master Classes taught by master teachers from the region.The Johnsons mentored the students throughout the creative process as well as at rehearsals. “We provided guidance and would pop into rehearsals to make sure things were going well and progressing. We’ve discovered that this process is a great leadership opportunity for the students. They have to manage rehearsal times, make sure dancers are available and take charge of their peers,” said Josie Johnson.Ken Johnson added, “It is exciting to see the amazing quality of work that these local, young choreographers produce. Audiences are continually blown away by the choreographer’s imagination coming to life on the stage.”Tickets are $12 (plus $3 Washington Center service fee) and can be purchased at: www.olytix.org or by calling 360-753-8586.Since 1970, Ballet Northwest has been a community-based group dedicated to promoting, teaching, and preserving the art of dance in Southwest Washington. The company offers educational opportunities for local dancers as well as outreach throughout the community. Facebook133Tweet0Pin0
Backcountry enthusiasts will now have access to better information for evaluating snow conditions and assessing avalanche risks, thanks to new avalanche awareness signage around the province. Avalanche awareness signs targeting mountain snowmobilers have been posted at 23 key highway locations and most of the 85 managed snowmobile areas in the province. These signs advise sledders they are entering avalanche territory and provide a telephone number and website address that gives up-to-date local avalanche conditions. Avaluator signage, providing users with step-by-step instructions for assessing avalanche dangers, will be installed at nine of B.C.’s most popular snowmobile trail access sites. The signs provide a map of the area, which includes a visual representation of how risky the terrain is in relation to avalanches. Avaluator signs • Avaluator Signs are located: – Near Golden: Gorman Lake, Quartz Creek, Silent Pass – Near Revelstoke: Frisby Ridge, Boulder Mountain – Near Sicamous: Owl Head, Blue Lake, Eagle Pass, Queest Mountain • Avaluator signs were created using the Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale (ATES). With these new signs, mapped snowmobiling terrain in the province has quadrupled—complete drainages are now mapped so sledders can see clearly where the risk of avalanches changes on the trail.
