Washington governor slams potential harm Navy testing may have on orcas

SEATTLE — The governor of Washington state and other state officials have criticized a Navy military testing program that would potentially harm endangered orcas if approved.

Porter sailor injured and medevaced during Exercise Sea Breeze

A sailor assigned to the guided-missile destroyer Porter was medically evacuated from the ship on July 22, officials said.

The medevac was due to an injury but did not involve an emergency medical condition, nor was it related to COVID-19, according to 6th Fleet spokeswoman Lt. Cmdr. Lenaya Rotklein.

‘A small number’ of carrier George HW Bush sailors test positive for COVID-19

Sailors assigned to the aircraft carrier George H.W. Bush have tested positive for COVID-19 this summer, but Navy officials are declining to say how many have contracted the novel coronavirus or when the infections were detected.

“A small number of Sailors have been diagnosed with COVID this summer,” Cmdr. Jennifer Cragg, a spokeswoman for Naval Air Force Atlantic, said in an email to Navy Times. “USS George H.W. Bush is not in a deployment status, and similar to other commands in the U.S. Navy with a small number of cases, there has been no impact to readiness.”

There’s a movement building to reverse DoD’s policy on LGBTQ pride flag and other banners

Dozens of House lawmakers on Thursday sent a letter to Defense Secretary Mark Esper calling for him to reverse a recent policy change banning display of LGBTQ pride flags in public areas at bases, saying it runs counter to the military’s stated goals of inclusion and respect.

The move came after a legislative effort earlier this week to force a change of Esper’s July 16 memo that effectively banned flags other than those representing states and allied countries from being displayed in public or common areas on military installations.

This soothing submarine video will put you straight to sleep

Have you ever heard of ASMR?

Autonomous sensory meridian response — it’s a brain tingling phenomenon that involves soothing sounds putting people straight to sleep.

“ASMR is a perceptual sensory phenomenon, likened to meditation, which encompasses a pleasant and calming ‘tingling’ sensation localized to the scalp and neck in those able to experience it,” according to an NIH article entitled ‘Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response: What is It? and Why Should We Care?’ “These sensations are triggered by specific auditory and visual stimuli such as whispering, personal attention, and even being the subject of a physician’s clinical examination. People looking to experience ASMR turn to the website “YouTube” where videos have been produced that utilize these triggers. These videos are generally watched by users in a quiet environment to achieve the relaxing effect of ASMR.”
