Each year, more than 1,000 junior and senior ROTC cadets from more than 30 teams across the nation attend the event.Cadet John Dike of the Air Force ROTC, a senior majoring in industrial systems engineering and a commander of the drill meet, was excited to participate in the event.“Our detachment has hosted since 1965,” Dike said. “I’m sure the level of intensity for our competition is unparalleled. It’s going to be a lot of fun.”The meet’s judges provide a unique and quite entertaining feature to the event each year. Teams are judged by notorious Marine Corps drill instructors from the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego. Enthusiastic and unabashed to get in a cadet’s face, these animated judges have been a big part of the tradition.Dike said the judges are tough, but embody the perfection all drill teams strive for.“It really throws people off, but our goal is to make it easy for everyone to act under pressure,” Dike said. “If you’re pressured by being told to do something quickly and by someone raising their voice, that’s just one more thing for us to help you overcome.”Dike believes the lessons learned at the competition translate well to actual military experience.“What we do here in our training and across the military is all carried over into this drill competition,” Dike said. “It’s all about just being used to these things, not being desensitized in understanding the intensity of the situation and not taking it personally.”Past winners of this drill meet include Brigham Young University, UCLA and Oregon State University.“It’s a great program that we run, and every year we try to make it better,” Dike said. “We definitely build legacy every single year among each competitor that comes to our event.”last_img read more

14 days agoFellaini slams Man Utd board: They keep sacking managers

first_imgTagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Fellaini slams Man Utd board: They keep sacking managersby Paul Vegas14 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveFormer Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has hit out at the board.Now with Shangdong Luneng, Fellaini slammed United’s sack culture.He told the Daily Mail: “They brought in [David] Moyes, they didn’t give him time. They brought in [Louis] Van Gaal, they gave him two years and we started to do some things, he won the cup, but after that they sacked the manager because they want to win quickly.”For me the club were too quick to sack Jose [Mourinho] because a manager like that comes and he needs a lot of players to do his own philosophy.”He wanted to build his team but after two years and a half they decided to sack him because the results were not there.”That’s the problem, they have to find a solution together. A manager like Van Gaal, tactically is very strong and a lot of experience and they sacked him.”They brought in one of the best managers in the world in Jose Mourinho, he wanted to build a team and they sacked him.”It’s not easy to build a team in that time, you need more than two years.”I don’t know what they will do with Ole. Mourinho, for the first season, he did amazingly, he improved the team, won things.”Okay the second season, was a bit more difficult, but he tried and did his best to help the team.” last_img read more

Will stick to fiscal prudence lower tax rates if elected Jaitley

first_imgNew Delhi: Finance Minister Arun Jaitley Thursday said the BJP-led NDA will continue with fiscal prudence and lower tax rates if elected back to power. He further said the GST (Goods and Services Tax) Council has cut tax rates on consumption items to 12 or 18 per cent from the highest slab of 28 per cent and lowering rate on cement is next on agenda. “I speak in terms of taxation policies… I’m quite clear in my mind that on two issues at least we had – a lot of good fiscal prudence and we brought the rates down, these are two areas, if we are in power we will continue the same glide path,” Jaitley said while addressing the CII AGM here. Also Read – Thermal coal import may surpass 200 MT this fiscalThe general elections will be held in phases beginning April 11 and counting of votes will take place on May 23. Jaitley said India’s growth has stabilised between 7-7.5 per cent and irrespective of global trends, domestic consumption is going to increase. “We have come to 7-7.5 per cent (growth rate) range despite the fact that there is no global boom or support of any kind, and we have stabilised at that, you need to graduate further,” he added. The Reserve Bank of India Thursday cut its GDP growth forecast for the current fiscal by 20 basis points (bps) to 7.2 per cent. Also Read – Food grain output seen at 140.57 mt in current fiscal on monsoon boostThe minister said that over the last 5 years the government did not increase tax rates, and in some cases doubled tax base and increased tax collection. “In the last 20 odd months of the GST except for Cement that is because of affordability, … every item of consumption has come down to 18 per cent and 12 per cent category from 28 per cent. So, it is only a matter of time that the last one also comes down,” Jaitley said. Asked what steps would be taken if the government comes to power, Jaitley said, “Wait for a couple of days, when our manifesto comes out, you may find some of the views expressed in that”. The government had revised upwards the fiscal deficit target for 2018-19 fiscal to 3.4 per cent from 3.3 per cent projected in the budget. For current fiscal, which begun on April 1, the fiscal deficit target has been set at 3.4 per cent.last_img read more

Manchester City have had the most outstanding of seasons and Jose Mourinho measures himself by title wins, not finishing second. Manchester United have had a good season in the league in finishing second but it has been inconsistent and they have dipped at times,” Neville went on to add.last_img read more
