SAN DIEGO NAVY BASES TO PARTICIPATE IN NATIONWIDE SECURITY EXERCISE

The Navy will be conducting part of a large-scale, nationwide anti-terrorism and force protection training exercise at San Diego-area bases and installations February 22-25.

Held annually, Exercise Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield enhances the training and readiness of Navy security personnel to respond to threats to installations and units. It is not a response to specific threats, but is regularly scheduled for practical experience and learning.

Measures have been taken to minimize disruptions to normal base and station operations, but there may be times throughout the week when the exercise causes increased traffic around bases or delays in base access. Area residents may also see increased security activity associated with the exercise.

Naval Medical Center San Diego advises beneficiaries that there may be delays at the hospital Wednesday, Feb. 23, and all outpatient visits and elective procedures have been cancelled that day. There may be delays at particular base clinics Wednesday, Feb. 23, and Thursday, Feb. 24. For a full schedule of Navy hospital, clinic and pharmacy hours during the week, see the medical center website at http://www.med.navy.mil/sites/nmcsd/Pages/MediaAdvisory_20110223.aspx

Also, representatives from the Fleet and Family Support Center, military housing and civilian housing referral services, Navy legal assistance, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society and religious services will be located at the Family Assistance Center at Murphy Canyon Chapel Wednesday and Thursday. Military family members needing assistance from such services can avoid potential delays at bases by going to the Family Assistance Center. Patrons can also call (866) 595-7460 to ask about delays and availability of services.

The Navy will be working this year with other military and local, state and federal agencies to enhance the training scenarios. The Marine Corps, Coast Guard, City of San Diego Office of Homeland Security, the Port of San Diego, San Diego Police Department and the Red Cross are just some of the organizations participating.

For more information about Solid Curtain/Citadel Shield, contact Brian O'Rourke, Public Affairs Office, Navy Region Southwest, (619) 532-4717.

NASA picks Thursday for Discovery's final launch
By Marcia Dunn, AP Aerospace Writer
Updated 19m ago |
 
CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida — NASA will try next week to launch space shuttle Discovery on its final voyage following a four-month delay for fuel tank repairs.

Liftoff is set for late Thursday afternoon. Senior managers voted unanimously Friday on the new launch date after discussing the fixes made since the shuttle's grounding in early November.

Cracks in the external fuel tank were discovered after a launch attempt was foiled by leaking hydrogen gas. It's taken this long to understand and repair the cracking, which could have harmed the shuttle during liftoff.

There is an atomic clock in San Diego at the Naval Air Station that synchronizes web timing with another clock at the Bureau of Standards in Boulder Colorado. If either one of those clocks is impaired the entire web would go down, and since there is little redundancy probably for good.

Don't know if it's true, but doesn't sound all that crazy.

Every system like that does have to have some sort of central or master clock, like a PC.
