Beneath the Surface: Killer Whales, SeaWorld, and the Truth by John Hargrove

By John Hargrove

Over the process twenty years, John Hargrove labored with 20 diverse whales on continents and at of SeaWorld's U.S. amenities. For Hargrove, turning into an orca coach fulfilled a formative years dream. notwithstanding, as his adventure with the whales deepened, Hargrove got here to doubt that their wishes may perhaps ever be met in captivity. while fellow running shoes have been killed via orcas in marine parks, Hargrove determined that SeaWorld's wildly well known courses have been either damaging to the whales and eventually detrimental for trainers.

After leaving SeaWorld, Hargrove turned one of many stars of the debatable documentary Blackfish. The outcry over the remedy of SeaWorld's orca has now accelerated past the outlines sketched by means of the award-winning documentary, with Hargrove contributing his services to an advocacy stream that's convincing either federal and nation governments to act.

In underneath the outside, Hargrove paints a compelling portrait of those extremely smart and social creatures, together with his favourite whales Takara and her mom Kasatka, of the main dominant orcas in SeaWorld. And he contains shiny descriptions of the lives of orcas within the wild, contrasting their freedom within the ocean with their lives in SeaWorld.

Hargrove's trip is one who humanity has simply started to take-toward the belief that the connection among the human and animal worlds has to be extensively rethought.

JBFSA-JxF complements a parallel JBFSA advanced concept technology demonstration (ACTD) programme being conducted by US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) to merge data from several of the systems. Under theACTD, a Mission Management Center – Test Bed (MMC-TB), located in Colorado Springs, fuses data from multiple unclassified BFT systems and forwards it to Peterson Air Force Base, Colorado, where it is integrated with classified systems. The combined information is then fed into a joint warfighter common operational picture.

The Royal Navy will be able to use the same system both on land and at sea. Increment 2 is currently being assessed. Its objectives are to: continue the migration of legacy systems in the fixed environment; deliver and manage a DII(F) deployed capability; and deliver and manage a DII(F) Above Secret capability for both fixed and deployed users. The Initial Operating Capability date for the deployed capability is early 2007, with full operating capability achieved by the end of 2005. Quick listed a number of challenges, including integration with Bowman to provide “end-to-end coherence” and the persistence of the legacy Navystar due to shipfitting constraints, that will affect it.

The systems are deployed globally with soldiers in active duty forces such as the 82nd Airborne Division as well as with National Guard and Reserve forces.
