VA’s repeated attempts to downplay the impact serious deficiencies

General News

WASHINGTON, D.C.— After the Office of Special Counsel released a letter to President Obama detailing VA’s repeated attempts to downplay the impact serious deficiencies in VA health care have had on patients, Chairman Miller released the following statement:    

"In reality, the deaths of dozens of veterans across the country have been linked to delays in VA care and other severe department health care problems. But in the fantasy land inhabited by VA’s Office of the Medical Inspector, serious patient safety issues apparently have no impact on patient safety.  It's impossible to solve problems by whitewashing them or denying they exist. This is a lesson VA should have already learned as part of its delays in care crisis, but President Obama needs to help reiterate it to each and every VA employee to ensure the department’s focus is on pinpointing and solving problems, rather than downplaying them. In the meantime, OMI owes it to America’s veterans and American taxpayers to provide an immediate and thorough explanation as to why it keeps reaching the same implausible conclusions in one report after another." - Rep. Jeff Miller, Chairman, House Committee on Veterans' Affair

"This is a time of great global transformation. We are seeing essentially a new world order evolving and being built."

"This is a time of great global transformation. We are seeing essentially a new world order evolving and being built."
Presenter: Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel
May 06, 2014

SECRETARY CHUCK HAGEL: You can laugh. That's what I was -- I was a sergeant, so I don't give many commands. But, first, thank you. I very much appreciate an opportunity to say hello and spend some time out here.

The few hours I've been here to -- it's given me a good understanding of the importance beyond what I'd already appreciated, the importance of this facility and what you do and what you mean to our Navy and what you mean to our defense enterprise and our country.

Area Control New Update

General News

Greetings Everyone!

I am working My new News website, Matrix Today! I will be doing all daily news updates on that website while I am editing and designing it. So, for all the update news be sure to go to: 
 The website also has a news feed for those of you that follow my feeds here on Area Control. You might want to sign up to Matrix Today RSS Feed

Some of you that have been following Area Control knowI have been creating and testing new news sites for a while now,  I make them and delete them. Sorry it has taken me so long to get going but I have been testing different scripts that would be best for these projects. I believe this is the one.  After I finish fine tunning Matrix Today I will be implementing 2 other sites into Matrix Today. One will be located at the domain name:

I plan on creating a place on that website where users can log in and post their news stories for free. It will be kind of like iReport.

But first I will be creating a Satellite Zone for all of the satellite information like the live weather radar with live weather maps, Live earthquakes, Satellite images and more. It will be located at the domain name

At this time both these domain names are pointing to however when start editing them they will be pointed to their proper locations.

 Thank you and I hope you enjoy my new websites.

Rip currents: Know what to do if you get caught up in one?

Stay Safe! Read the surf forecast BEFORE you head to the beach. Don't panic! If you are caught in a rip current, swim parallel to the shore. When the current weakens, swim at an angle back to shore. If a red flag is flying at the beach it means that there is high surf or strong currents. No swimming is allowed. Never swim alone.  


The water looks ready for a swim, but there may be a danger awaiting those who enter. This potentially deadly force is the number one safety threat at beaches – it’s called a rip current.

Rip currents are fast, powerful channels of water flowing away from the beach and out past the breaking waves. Before you realize it, you can get dragged out far from the shore.

Suicide bombers - and how to beat them

Imagine seeing a suspected suicide bomb car approaching. What are your options? Signal, shoot, flee? Now there's a new option. A technology is being tested at a secret location in Norway that can make a car's engine cut out using high-intensity jammers.
Better still, it can also take out drones, jet skis, and any other vehicle used to deliver bombs.
And it has also positively tested disrupting remote control-activated bombs -- even chemical and biological ones.
This video shows the device being put through its paces using fast cars, briefcase bombs and drones as it prepares to be unveiled.

NATO’s counter-piracy mission until 2016

NATO Defence Ministers on Tuesday (3 June) decided to extend NATO’s counter-piracy operation Ocean Shield until the end of 2016.

Since August 2009, NATO ships have patrolled the waters off the Horn of Africa as part of Operation Ocean Shield. Their mission is to contribute to international efforts to fight maritime piracy and to help build the capacity of regional navies. Operation Ocean Shield works closely with other naval forces patrolling the Indian Ocean including US-led maritime forces and EU naval forces.
