U.S. Defense Logistics Agency Energy, India Sign International Fuel …

INS Shakti replenishing USS Carl Vinson during Exercise Malabar 2012 Defense Logistics Agency Energy Commander Air Force Brig. Gen. Mark McLeod signs the Fuel Exchange Agreement providing for reciprocal provisioning of fuel between the U.S. Navy and the Indian navy at Fort Belvoir, Virginia, Oct. 30, 2015. The United States and India signed the first international fuel agreement between the two nations in more than a decade. Leaders from the Defense Logistics Agency Energy and the Indian navy, on behalf of the Indian Ministry of Defence, signed a fuel exchange agreement to allow the partner nations to trade fuel with each other as needed. After five years of deliberation, DLA Energy International Agreements finalized a new Fuel Exchange Agreement that provides for reciprocal provisioning of fuel between the U.S. Navy and the Indian navy, said David Alexander, chief of International Fuel Agreements for DLA Energy Bulk Petroleum Supply Chain Services. The new agreement allows the U.S. Navy to refuel the Indian navy, or vice versa, at sea with F76 naval distillate fuel and/or JP5 jet fuel during joint training exercises and anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden, Alexander added. Cooperation between DLA Energy and the Indian Embassy at Washington, D.C., resulted in a fully signed three-year agreement in November 2015, with additional steps taken to ready it for its January 2016 release, said Michael Holgate, the Pacific Command lead for DLA Energy s International Fuel Agreements. When India s Minister of Defence Manohar Parrikar met with U.S. Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter in December 2015, the leaders spoke about the strong Indo-U.S. defense engagements and this agreement in public statements from the Minister of Defence s office. Secretary Carter and Minister Parrikar expressed satisfaction at the level of maritime cooperation between the two navies and resolved to further expand the same in coming years. They also welcomed the renewal of the Fuel Exchange Agreement. We reviewed the cooperation between our armed forces, which have grown stronger, Today, India is conducting more military exercises with the U.S. than with any other country. Our cooperation in the area of maritime security is also becoming stronger, especially in the Indian Ocean region where India is playing its due role and responsibility of a net security provider. Meanwhile, during President Barak Obama visit to India Jan. 25, the two countries agreed on a joint strategic vision for the Asia Pacific and Indian Ocean region. The recently renewed Fuel Exchange Agreement is a very significant step in the continued interoperability between the two navies, the Minister of Defence s office announced. This agreement facilitates both the navies to benefit by taking fuel from each other s tankers at sea, enhancing endurance and reach. The two navies have already benefited from this agreement in the Gulf of Aden counter-piracy operations, as well as in bi-lateral exercises in the past. With an agreement in place, either navy is authorized to get approval to refuel each another quickly. Also, the agreement specifies the quality of the product and streamlines the billing process so each country can get paid in a timely manner, Holgate said. Fuel Exchange Agreements with India or any other partnering nation lays the auditable foundation for the sale of DLA Energy capitalized fuel to foreign nations or for the U.S. military to purchase fuel from foreign nations, Alexander explained. The end state is increased interoperability and the means to optimize supply chain efficiencies. Having an agreement in place essentially secures another source of supply for our navies, which makes logistical planning for exercises or real world operations that much easier, he said. Both nations can take advantage of the agreement in the upcoming Malabar and multinational Rim of the Pacific exercises. Signing the new Fuel Exchange Agreement is a momentous breakthrough in formalizing logistical support between the U.S. Defense Department and Indian MOD, and is a critical force multiplier supporting future joint naval exercises, Holgate said.

Everton agree Avon Tyres partnership

01 March 2016 | Posted in Sponsorship, Soccer, Europe, | By Eoin Connolly[1][2][3][4]

Premier League soccer club Everton have agreed a sponsorship deal with Avon Tyres.

The Wiltshire, England-based company, a subsidiary of Cooper Tire Europe, will become the official tyre partner of the Toffees for the rest of the current season and the entirety of 2016/17. Avon Tyres branding will appear throughout Goodison Park on matchdays. No financial terms were released.

“The new commercial team here at Everton are delighted to welcome Avon Tyres on board to the club s partner portfolio,” said Alan McTavish, the head of commercial partnerships at Everton.

Avon Tyres is an established, premium brand with a rich history in the motor industry and we look forward to working with them to achieve the brand s business objectives. Avon Tyres European marketing communications manager Sarah McRoberts added: “Football is by far and away the most popular sport in the UK and the Everton partnership provides the perfect platform for us to reach a large number of potential new customers. This is the first time Avon Tyres has partnered with a Premier League club and we re excited to see how the relationship will increase our presence in the UK football market in the future. Everton were the subject of major investment last week when Iranian businessman Farhad Moshiri, formerly an Arsenal shareholder, bought a 49.9 per cent stake in the Merseyside club for a reported UK 87.5 million (US$121 million).

The team are currently an underwhelming 12th in the Premier League table, and travel to bottom club Aston Villa on Tuesday night.

'Game of Thrones' Sophie Turner Says Sansa Survives Season 6

Game of Thrones[1] has always built itself as a series capable of offing its leads at any moment, even if the audience seems to reject certain deaths too harsh to be true[2]. It would probably stand to reason that Sophie Turner[3] s Sansa Stark has plenty of time in her future as well, something Turner seemingly hinted at the Oscars last night.

Take this with a grain of salt for now, as Game of Thrones stars have gotten reasonably good when it comes to keeping spoilers, but Turner seemingly confirmed during the E! News preshow that Sansa would survive Season 6, saying of the scripts I m flicking through, like, death, death, death, death, death Okay, I m good for this season. Granted, we ve heard of at least some peril Lady Stark might find herself in[4] by the end of the season (and don t forget, crossing Ramsay Bolton doesn t generally end well), no one exactly had Sansa on the death watch for Season 6. Still, assuming we can take Turner s words at face value, it s a comfort to know that Sansa won t be subject to more horrible fates this year. Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 6, soon to be renewed for Seasons 7 and 8[5], screen legend Max von Sydow[6] has been cast[7] as the mysterious Three-Eyed Raven to a returning Bran[8], while Deadwood alum Ian McShane[9] will also appear in a limited, mysterious role[10], joining Richard E. Grant[11] and The Babadook[12] star Essie Davis as theatre troup players[13], four notable actors as the Tarly family[14], Melanie Liburd as a new Red Priestess[15], and Borgen star Pilou Asb k as fan-favorite Euron Greyjoy[16]. Apart from a list of directors[17], Of Monsters and Men will put in a cameo[18], and story logistics seemingly confirm[19] scenes set at The Wall next year.

In the meantime, check out the latest on the Game of Thrones Season 6 premiere with additional teasers below, and stay tuned for April 24!
