L-2 (SS-41) was laid down 19 March 1914 by the Fore River Shipbuilding Co., Quincy, Mass.; launched 11 February 1915; sponsored by Mrs. Russel Gray; and commissioned 29 September 1916, Lt. (]g.) Augustine H. Gray in command.

After exercises along the Atlantic coast, L-2 arrived in Key West, Fla., for experiments in submarine warfare. After operating in southern waters through March 1917, the submarine prepared for World War I service.

Departing New London, Conn., 27 November 1917, L-2 steamed for Europe via the Azores, arriving Queenstown Ireland, 27 January 1918. Based at Bantry Bay, Ireland she patrolled around the British Isles and, with other members of her squadron, ranged the North Atlantic, reducing losses to German submarines of shipping vital in supplying the Allied armies. L-2 attached enemy submarines on 26 May and 10 July with inconclusive results. Her constant vigilance on patrol contributed to the overall success of American submarine operations in World War I.

After the war, L-2 departed Portland' England, 3 January 1919 for home. Arriving Philadelphia in early February, the submarine experimented with torpedo and under

sea detection techniques along the Atlantic coast until 1922. L-2 was placed in reduced commission at New London, Conn., 1 May 1922, and decommissioned at Hampton Roads, Va., 4 May 1923. She was scrapped and her materials were sold 28 November 1933, in accordance with the terms of the London Treaty


Few weapons systems survive active use longer than a generation before they are replaced by something more advanced developed from lessons learned from the previous system’s hard use in the field. Scratch that when it comes to the B-52 Stratofortress.

Below is an image of B-52A #1 at the Boeing employee rollout ceremony, Seattle, Washington March 18, 1954– 66 years ago today. The tailfin was too high for the hangar door and was later hoisted into place.

Now, in the platform’s 7th decade in service, the good old Buff is still ready and willing to go in harm’s way– and does so regularly.

Please don’t feed the Buffs…it will ruin their diets.

The last production Strat, B-52H AF Serial No. 61-0040, left the factory on 26 October 1962. As they are expected to remain in service until 2050, the youngest of the fleet will still be flying at age 92.

USS Midway, built in Newport News, Virginia, was commissioned in September 1945. She served in the Atlantic Fleet for her first eight years of service. The ship was used in a couple of important naval experiments. In 1946, she was sent to the Arctic to test cold water operations. In 1947, she was the launch pad for a V-2 ballistic missile. Later that same year, the carrier began its first deployment to the Mediterranean. For the next few years she worked in both the Mediterranean and in the North Atlantic.

In October 1952, her hull number was changed from CVB-41 to CVA-41. This was due to her reclassification to an attack aircraft carrier. In 1954, she joined the Seventh Fleet for a year. Late in 1955, she underwent her first modernization. This expanded her flight deck and updated her equipment to handle the latest aircraft.

After her return two years later, Midway went back to the Seventh Fleet. She saw active combat operations in 1965 with the Vietnam conflict. In 1966, she began her second modernization. This involved expanding her deck once again. After returning to service in 1970, she returned to the Seventh Fleet supporting combat operations. In 1975, she was renumbered CV-41.

In 1986, she underwent her third modernization. In the early 1990’s, she participated in the first Iraq conflict. Afterwards she returned to the Seventh Fleet. In April 1992, she was decommissioned. At this time, she has been converted to a museum located in San Diego.


Laid down: 14 March 1960 - USS Pollack (SSN-603), a Permit-class attack submarine, was the second ship of the United States Navy to be named for the pollack, a food fish resembling the true cod, but with the lower jaw projecting and without the barbel.
The contract to build Pollack was awarded to New York Shipbuilding Corporation in Camden, New Jersey on 3 March 1959 and her keel was laid down on 14 March 1960. She was launched on 17 March 1962, sponsored by Mrs. John Pastore, and commissioned on 26 May 1964, with Commander Harvey E. Lyon in command.

Pollack reported to the Commander in Chief, U.S. Atlantic Fleet for duty, and became a unit of Submarine Squadron 4, homeported in Charleston, South Carolina. After shakedown in the Caribbean Sea, she underwent a six-month evaluation as an anti-submarine warfare (ASW) weapon.

Most of 1965 was spent at sea evaluating new ASW tactics, participating in a destroyer versus submarine evaluation, and practicing an anti-shipping mission. Also during 1965 Pollack earned the Navy Unit Commendation.

During 1966, Pollack was evaluated in coordinated ASW operations. She spent most of 1967 at sea, making various weapons tests. On 1 March 1968, Pollack's homeport was changed to Norfolk, Virginia, and she became a unit of Submarine Squadron 10, the first all-nuclear attack submarine squadron in the Navy. Pollack remained with the Atlantic Fleet into 1970.

Decommissioned and simultaneously struck from the Naval Register, 1 March 1989 Final Disposition, disposed of through NPSSRP (Nuclear Powered Ship and Submarine Recycling Program) at Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, Bremerton, WA., 17 February 1995.

Got Dolphins?

19 June 1945 - The coordinated submarine attack group, commanded by Cmdr. Earl T. Hydeman, continues operations against Japanese shipping in the Sea of Japan. USS Tinosa (SS 283) sinks army cargo ship Taito Maru and freighter Kaisei Maru. (This Day in Naval History)

He was awarded the Navy Cross
Partial citation. he was Commander of a Coordinated Attack Group consisting of two others submarines and, at the same time, he exercised overall command of two other groups who were operating concurrently in the same area. Under his able supervision and inspiring leadership the nine submarines operating in this dangerous area smashed the enemy at every turn and thirty-one ships and sixteen small craft, totaling over 108,000 tons, were sent to the bottom, and two enemy ships and three small craft totaling over 8,000 tons, were severely damaged.

19 June 1942 - USS Amberjack (SS-219) - Commissioned

Amberjack was a Gato-class submarine, the first United States Navy ship named for the amberjack.

Her keel was laid by the Electric Boat Company of Groton, Connecticut, on 15 May 1941. She was launched on 6 March 1942 (sponsored by Mrs. Randall Jacobs), and commissioned on 19 June 1942, Lieutenant Commander John A. Bole, Jr. in command.
Amberjack won three battle stars for her World War II service, and was credited with sinking three ships, for a total of 28,600 tons while damaging two more ships for 14,000 tons damaged.

After shakedown training in waters off New London, Connecticut and Newport, Rhode Island, Amberjack got underway on 20 July, bound for the Pacific. She transited the Panama Canal in mid-August and reached Pearl Harbor on 20 August. Following training exercises, Amberjack got underway for her first war patrol on 3 September. Two days later, she touched at Johnston Island to refuel and, later that day, resumed her voyage to her patrol area between the northeast coast of New Ireland and Bougainville, Solomon Islands.

In a second radio transmission on 4 February, Amberjack reported having sunk a 5,000-ton freighter laden with explosives in a two-hour night surface attack that date in which five torpedoes were fired. During this engagement, an officer was slightly wounded in the hand by machine gun fire. Chief Pharmacist's Mate Arthur C. Beeman, went to the bridge to assist the officer and was killed by machine gun fire

The enlisted men's recreation center at Submarine Base, Pearl Harbor, is named for Chief Pharmacist's Mate Arthur C. Beeman, who was killed in the gun battle of 4 February 1943.

Final Disposition, sunk on 3rd patrol by depth charging, 16 February 1943, off Rabaul, all hands lost Struck from the Naval Register, 30 March 1945. Amberjack received three battle stars for her service during World War II.

Boberg Arms XR9

The Boberg Arms XR9 is a rotating barrel, locked-breech pistol. It is characterized as a bullpup pistol because its chamber is located behind the trigger, directly above the magazine. This design makes the XR9 more compact and increase its barrel length while maintaining its compactness. Β]

The weapon's loading process is a unique pull-push system, where the rearward motion of the slide pulls a round out of the magazine backwards, and pushes up and forwards into the chamber. To facilitate this design, the magazine is designed so that the cartridges are loaded nose-down, and the feed lips hold them in this position. There are no followers in XR9 magazines, and the spring directly pushes at the bottom round. This system causes problems with some brands of ammunition, and Boberg Arms maintained a list of compatible ammunition brands. Γ]

The following footnotes apply to these data:

1. The numbers of beneficiaries do not include certain uninsured persons, most of whom both attained age 72 before 1968 and have fewer than 3 quarters of coverage, in which cases the costs are reimbursed by the general fund of the Treasury. The number of such uninsured persons was 179 as of June 30, 1999. Totals do not necessarily equal the sums of rounded components.

2. Historical covered worker data are subject to revision.

3. Covered Workers is defined as those who are paid at some time during the year for employment on which Social Security taxes are due.

4. Beneficiaries as defined as those with monthly benefits in current-payment status as of June 30.

Monthly Social Security benefits were first paid starting in January 1940. Data for 1940 computed from Tables 4.B.1 and 5.A.4 from the 1998 Annual Statistical Supplement to the Social Security Bulletin . The following footnotes apply to the 1940 data only:

One of the biggest scandals that come from the Dance of the Forty One was the involvement of President Porfirio Díaz’s son-in-law. When the police raided the party, there were allegedly 42 men so that there were 21 couples dancing. However, one of the men caught up in the party was the son-in-law to the president of the time. It is rumored that he was ushered out by authorities and separated from the other 41 men who faced punishment to save the president and his family embarrassment.

Glass Transitions and Water-Food Structure Interactions

This chapter focuses on “food polymer science” approach and illustrates various recent examples of the way it has been used to define structure–function relationships in food products and processes and to assess and understand the effects of glass transitions and water plasticization on food quality, safety, and stability. The chapter reviews some theoretical principles from the field of synthetic polymer science that have been shown to be applicable to the studies of the glassy state phenomenon in foods and illustrates those applications by means of a broad overview focusing primarily on the most recent experimental studies by a number of groups that have been especially active in this rapidly growing field of research. The results of such studies have demonstrated the major opportunity offered by the food polymer science approach to expand not only the quantitative knowledge but also, of broader practical value in the context of industrial applications, the qualitative understanding of food products and processes with respect to (1) structure–functional property and water relationships and (2) the influences of nonequilibrium glassy and rubbery states on time-dependent mechanical and rheological properties related to quality and storage stability.
