Navy holds joint maritime disaster response drill with Korea Coast Guard
The South Korean Navy has launched new rescue operation teams from three Navy fleets covering waters off the countrys eastern western and southern coasts. Theyll be on standby to respond to incidents at sea. so hopefully there will be no repeat of the awful events of last April. when a ferry capsized. killing more than threehundred people. Connie Kim reports. When Ship Salvage Unit members from Koreas Navy 1st fleet respond to an emergency alarm the rescue crew does not waste a single moment. Hosted by the Republic of Korea Navy 1st Fleet.
Headquarters the rescue operation team on Wednesday took part in the joint Navy and Korea Coast Guard maritime disaster response drill in the waters of the East Sea. They aim to boost its rescue capabilities to prevent accidents like the Sewolho ferry sinking that killed more than 300 people. The Navy launched new maritime rescue operation teams in each fleet so that they can quickly carry on with its rescue mission. Its working with the Korea Coast to boost joint rescue capability. The 15 member team is divided into a rescue vessel and a rigid inflatable boat each loaded.
With scuba gear a oneperson decompression chamber a rubber raft and surface supported diving system device. They both head to the accident site to rescue two drowning men. With the help of the SSDS device the divers can reach depths of up to 58 meters. With the device its safer for divers to go deeper than with the scuba gear. After rescuing the drowning men in the waters and from a listing boat they are brought up on the deck and quickly put into the chamber to decompress from the high pressure experienced under water.
RV Arcticus Build Part 3
When building the hull of a research vessel, upside down is the most efficient approach. Take the Arcticus, for example, the new research vessel being built for the US Geological Survey's Great Lakes Science Center. Now that construction of the hull is complete, the whole thing needs to be flipped over. First, a hoist is used to lift the hull and move it outside. Then three cranes are attached to the hull, two cranes on the port side, one crane on the starboard side. Slowly, very slowly, the crane operators lift the port side high into the air.
Of course, it goes a little faster at 100 times normal speed. This is no small task, since the hull weighs 67 tons. That's more than the weight of 30 minivans. Once the hull is hanging safely from its port side, one of the cranes is disconnected and reattached to the starboard side. Then the starboard side is lifted until the hull is right side up. Jack stands support the hull so that the cranes can be detached. Finally, the hoist is brought in again to move the hull back into the work bay, where.
National Assembly passes 2015 budget bill
Koreas rival parties have passed next years 340 billion U.S. dollar budget bill,. meeting the constitutional deadline for the first time in 12 years. For more on the governments spending priorities for 2015, Park Jiwon reports. It hasnt happened in 12 years, but on Tuesday, the National Assembly passed next years government budget bill before the deadline set by the Constitution. The passage is of great significance. as parliament was able to avoid the tiresome tugofwar scenarios weve seen in the recent past. This year, the timeline was helped by new pressure.
Under the revised National Assembly Act, if lawmakers didnt meet the deadline. the governments draft version of the budget bill would have passed automatically. Among the 273 lawmakers present. 225 were in favor, 28 against and 20 abstained. The 2015 budget bill is passed. Heres whats inside the 2015 budget The government has allocated 103 billion U.S. dollars for welfare, 48 billion dollars for education, ' billion dollars for RD and social overhead capital, 34 billion dollars for defense, 15 billion dollars for safety, 4point1 billion dollars for foreign affairs and unification, and the rest for other social costs.
A large portion was allocated to welfare and education spending. to better help the elderly. and to provide free childcare programs for preschoolers. Next years budget is 5point5 percent, or 17point6 billion dollars, higher than this years. Apart from the revised budget bill. the two parties also passed taxrelated bills. They hiked the price of cigarettes by almost two U.S. dollars a pack in a bid to reducing smoking rates and to make up for tax revenue shortfalls. And in a move to boost the domestic economy. Korean companies will be given tax breaks if they increase investments, wages and dividend.
