NASA’s Dart mission hopes to show dangerous incoming rocks can be deflected by deliberately crushing them

A NASA-built spacecraft is set to intentionally crash into a small asteroid next week as part of a planetary protection test mission.

The purpose of the mission is to demonstrate that dangerous incoming rocks can be deflected by deliberately crushing them.

The spacecraft, known as the Double Asteroid Redirection Test (Dart), is expected to collide with the 170-meter-wide (560ft) asteroid at 12:14 a.m. UK time on Tuesday, September 27.

The asteroid, named Dimorphos, poses no threat to Earth and is part of a binary asteroid system that orbits Didymos (a larger companion asteroid), which takes around 11 hours and 55 minutes.

NASA astronomers hope that Dart, while destroying itself in the process, will shorten that orbital period by about 10 minutes.

NASA said: “Dart’s target asteroid poses no threat to Earth, but provides the perfect testing ground to see if this method of asteroid deflection – known as the technique of kinetic impactor – would be a viable way to protect our planet in the event of an asteroid collision course with Earth have been discovered in the future.

The Dart mission will be the first-ever large-scale demonstration of asteroid deflection technology.

The spacecraft recently captured its first images of Didymos and Dimorphos in July when it was about 20 million miles (32 million km) from the asteroid system. He used an onboard instrument, known as the Didymos Reconnaissance and Asteroid Camera for Optical navigation (Draco), to take the pictures.

It took Dart 10 months to close in on Dimorphous after launching last November on SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket.

What will happen when the mission takes place?

The asteroids will be about 6.8 million miles (11 million kilometers) from Earth at the time of the collision. Dart will accelerate to around 15,000 miles per hour (24,140 kilometers per hour) before colliding with Dimorphos.

This collision will be recorded by a briefcase-sized satellite known as the Light Italian CubeSat for Imaging of Asteroids (LICIACube), which was provided by the Italian Space Agency.

LICIACube, which weighs only 14 kg (31 lb), hitchhiked with Dart in deep space before recently separating from the spacecraft in a final farewell.

In 2024, the European Space Agency (ESA) will launch its Hera spacecraft, which will make a two-year journey to the asteroid system to gather information following the crash.

ESA said: “By the time Hera reaches Didymos in 2026, Dimorphos will have achieved historic significance: the first object in the solar system to have its orbit shifted by human effort in a measurable way.

How many asteroids are there near Earth?

There are currently about 27,000 asteroids in near-Earth orbit. Rocks 140 meters (460 ft), larger in size and approaching more than 4.7 million miles (7.5 million km) during orbit are classified as potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs).

Atlanta’s freshman season course corrects itself by returning to Atlanta https://poterefotografico.com/atlantas-freshman-season-course-corrects-itself-by-returning-to-atlanta/ Mon, 19 Sep 2022 14:23:20 +0000 https://poterefotografico.com/atlantas-freshman-season-course-corrects-itself-by-returning-to-atlanta/ Previously Atlanta: Van, who wears a wig that makes her look like Audrey Tautou in Amelie and who now speaks with a French accent, reunites with her friend Candice (whom we first met in the Season 2 episode “Champagne Papi”) in Paris.

Previously Atlanta: Van, who wears a wig that makes her look like Audrey Tautou in Amelie and who now speaks with a French accent, reunites with her friend Candice (whom we first met in the Season 2 episode “Champagne Papi”) in Paris. The two, along with Candice’s friends Shanice and Xosha, travel to Paris together, where things get very strange and very bloody, leading Van to be confronted by Candice about what’s really going on with her.

THE STORY SO FAR: Earn, Paper Boi, Vanessa, and Darius have returned from Europe and back to Atlanta, where things are just as weird and surreal as ever. Darius tries to return an air fryer to a department store for a refund during a massive riot that breaks out for unknown reasons, only to be followed all over town by a white woman in a motorized wheelchair who is armed with a knife and who thinks Darius stole his air fryer. Paper Boi learns that Blueblood, one of his favorite rappers, has died suddenly and finds himself on a mysterious treasure hunt that Blueblood organized shortly before his death. Earn and Vanessa constantly find themselves running into their exes as they spend the day shopping at Atlantic Station, as they realize they are both unable to leave.

WHAT’S GOOD IN THIS EPISODE? : Darius attempts to return the air fryer for a refund (and does so simply because he realized he has an oven) to the customer service section, only for the employee to realize that since shit is already popping (and causing the whole store to look like a Marshalls, which is a very accurate description, and I say this as someone who worked in a Marshalls for two years) , he might as well take all the money out of the cash box and run away. Christine, the woman in the motorized wheelchair, refusing to let Darius or anyone else leave the store with stolen goods, only to get pushed around and sprayed with fire extinguishers as a result. (This was based on a real person and an incident.) The opening title sequence, which shows sweeping aerial shots of Atlanta as if to comfort viewers at home and let them know, “See, everybody ? We are back in Atlanta, and we are no longer in Europe! We’re back on familiar ground, and we won’t be offering you any more one-shot episodes with white characters you don’t recognize! OK?! Are you happy now?! We heard all your fucking complaints!

Paper Boi and Darius stuck in traffic and discussing where they should go if they take a flight out of town, and cross Jamaica off the list, like their weed and the movie Shottas are both overrated. Earn and Van realize that time seems to stand still at Atlantic Station, as evidenced by Vanessa’s ex Amir, who has worked at the same AT&T store for nearly a decade, and Earn’s ex , Kenya, apparently stuck at Atlantic Station ever since. now you see me 2 (which really should have been called Now you don’tdepending on who you talk to on social media) hit theaters.

Earn and Van spot and portray at least six of their exes as if they were Captain America and Black Widow on the run from S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Winter Soldier while walking around the outdoor section of Atlantic Station. (Van: “Peter Brookfield. went on six dates between 2012 and 2014, and he was the last white American I ever kissed.”) The Paper Boi montage revealing clues that ultimately lead him to the location of Blueblood, which holds the funeral and where Paper Boi is greeted by his widow, Keisha, who explains that it was something he planned in detail to be remembered and appreciated. (It also includes a coffin with a fake skeleton wearing a suit with a bow tie and a baseball cap.) Earn and Van find an exit at Atlantic Station, which is a doorway to a dark room with damp, carpeted walls. . …leads to the same room where Blueblood’s funeral takes place and where Darius finally arrives after escaping Christine and her knife-wielding claws. The last shot of the episode, in which the camera slowly zooms in on Kenya, who is waiting for an Uber to take her home and who has accepted Darius’ air fryer as a gift for her father, and the familiar sound of Christine’s wheelchair as he gets closer and closer to Kenya from behind before the episode instantly cuts to black.

WHAT’S NOT SO GOOD ABOUT THIS EPISODE? : Nothing that comes to mind.

ALL THE CAST CAMEOS OF COMMUNITY? : None.

DOES SHE-HULK TWERK WITH MEGAN THEE STALLION IN THIS EPISODE? : You’re thinking the wrong show, but if She-Hulk or Megan Thee Stallion appeared on this show for some reason, twerk-related or not, it still wouldn’t be as weird as most of the other things we’ve seen happen on Atlanta.

HOW MANY BUMPS DID FY HAVE IN THIS EPISODE? : A few, and of course, most of them are from Paper Boi.

ALL THE CAST CAMEOS OF SOLO: A STAR WARS STORY? : No.

ON A SCALE OF 1 TO “WHAT WILL I WATCH?” How weird and terrifying was this episode? : Definitely a 7 or 8. When Earn and Van found the exit door of Atlantic Station and walked through, I was expecting them to either end up in the house of Teddy Perkins, John Malkovich’s mastermind, or end up immediately get thrown off the New Jersey Turnpike.

ARE THERE TIME-TRAVELING ALIENS IN THIS EPISODE? : No, Dustin, still no aliens in sight.

DOES WHITE EARNEST FROM SEASON 3 APPEAR IN THIS EPISODE? : No.

TO SUM UP: There have been many people who have not been shy at all about expressing how they fell in love with Atlanta last season, and how they found the majority of last season polarizing, and how they wanted the show to go back to what it was and focus on the main cast rather than a bunch of guest stars (mostly white) of which they knew nothing. These same people were able to breathe a huge sigh of relief with this season’s premiere, as it allowed us to earn money and company at home, and surrounded by black people while dealing with deliciously weird shit with which we are used to seeing them. .

We see Earn and Van spending time together as they try to find their way out of the seemingly inescapable maze that is Atlantic Station (there’s been no acknowledgment of their struggles with each other since last season , but Earn verbalizes more than once how much Van means to him compared to all of his other exes he’s met all day), Paper Boi remains hopeful that a rapper who inspired him to enter in the rap game was still alive, only to realize that he wasn’t and didn’t get the most out of living his life and enjoying it as much as he should have ( Blueblood’s voice was provided by Earl Sweatshirt, and the character himself was largely inspired by the late, great MF Doom); and Darius is chased all over town by a Karen who, like most Karens, overestimates her own importance and refuses to mind her own business when it comes to black people (the fact that she shares the same name, the same determination and murderous rage as the nearly unstoppable vehicle of one of Stephen King’s best-known stories is no coincidence).

This is a very strange and unusual way for Atlanta to kick off its final season, but if there’s anything that Atlanta has proven itself and also excelled, it’s strange and unusual. The fact that we can see more things happening in the backyard of the characters (and hopefully without more problematic celebrity guest appearances that would get the show talked about on social media for all the wrong reasons) is the best and most appropriate. for the show to begin bidding farewell to us in the weeks to come.

Patrick Reed had a fairly successful golf career, but he was continually accused of alleged improprieties on and off the golf course.and some are covered in Shane Ryan’s new book “The Cup They Couldn’t Lose”.

This isn’t the first time Reed has appeared in one of Ryan’s books, as in 2015 he wrote about the golfer’s controversial college career.

The controversial college career of Patrick Reed

He told how in 2008, Patrick Reed was enrolled at the University of Georgia in Athens, before being kicked out of the golf team due to violating team rules regarding alcohol more than once.

Patrick Reed was arrested for underage drinking and possession of a fake IDplaced on probation and ordered to perform community service.

His teammates turned on him once a watch, putter and $400 in cash disappeared from the locker room, while they suspected Reed took them, charges which Reed denied.

So Reed would end up attending another college, Augusta State, but he was again accused of wrongdoing on several occasionsafter allegedly shaving features off its dashboards.

His his teammates wanted to kick him out of the teambut the coach decided to hand him a two-match ban instead.

With Reed leads Augusta to two national titlesthe second coming in a confrontation with his former college and teammates, Georgia.

Patrick Reed was not far from controversy as a pro

In 2019, he was selected by Tiger Woods for the Presidents Cup and many believed the golfing legend had made a deal with the devil, due to Reed’s unpredictability.

And at the Hero World Classic before the Presidents Cup, Reed was caught trying to improve the lie of his ball on more than one occasion and was penalized for it, but he later argued that the TV camera angles made it look worse than what actually happened.

With his rivals expressing their frustration on his actions.

“To give a bit of a bulls-t answer like the camera angle is enough up there,” said fellow golfer Cameron Smith, before adding.

“I have no sympathy for anyone who cheats. I hope the crowd gives it not just to him but to everyone next week.”

Patrick Reed had to be assigned armed police to walk with him on the tournament course, while he was constantly verbally abused by the crowd.

If you know how to make a video, you already have the unique skills that allow you to go out and make a travel documentary. Now there’s a new course to help you up the ante and make adventure film a career: check out the new MZed course on “Adventure Film”.

“Adventure Filmmaking with Russ Malkin” is MZed’s new course, packed with wisdom and advice for all video makers looking to put their passion on the road. Whether your goal is to send a full production crew and talent to a specific part of the world, or you want to hop in a van and make a movie of yourself exploring your area, there are a few hard-learned lessons you should consider. before going on an adventure.

Russ Malkin is a UK based producer/director who has combined travel and film for over 30 years. He is best known for his Long Way series which follows Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman on their motorcycle adventures around the world. More recently, Long Way Up became the flagship documentary series that launched the Apple TV+ platform. Now Russ wants to share some of the lessons he’s learned over the years so you too can become an adventure filmmaker.

Behind the scenes of the adventure film course

Why do this course? As the founder of Big Earth Productions, Russ Malkin is on the road most of the year. He has created content for many broadcasters around the world including the BBC, ITV, Sky, National Geographic, Apple, Amazon and Discovery. He often works with high profile personalities, such as Prince Harry, David Beckham, Ewan McGregor and Henry Cavill (aka Superman). So it’s clear that Russ is a busy person.

But I remember when Russ first approached MZed to create a course. It was at the height of pandemic cabin fever when creators were itching to get back outside and explore, collaborate, and document their adventures. Russ told me he wanted to give back and teach others how to create travel documentaries, and what better time to spark the adventurous spirit than when filmmakers were coming out of a long period of isolation?

Well, that time has come, as many productions are getting back to work at full speed. In fact, when we shot the course, crews all over the UK were already full. Luckily, we had Korro Films’ amazing Ollie Kenchington to helm production, and he pulled some strings to bring in a wonderful crew to shoot the course. (You might know Ollie from his MZed classes, as well as writing for CineD).

So Russ gathered up his notes, met the crew at a modest filming location (see above) and within days managed to share virtually everything he knows about the filmmaking process. adventure. As you know if you’ve seen his productions, Russ pops up on camera from time to time, as he prefers to keep his crew naked while he produces, directs and often helps film the documentaries. So his advice covers everything from pitching ideas, working with talent and finding money, to dealing with broken equipment, exhausted crews and difficult border crossings.

The entire course is divided into three sections: Before you leave, In your adventureand When you come home. The course is released in stages as editing is completed, so Before You Go is currently available to watch, and the other parts will be added to the course soon.

Before you go on an adventure – lesson topics

To give you an overview of what to expect from the course, here are the topics Russ covers for the Before You Go part of the course, which is basically pre-production and planning.

Introduction to Adventure

Why go on an adventure? In this first lesson, Russ Malkin talks about adventure filmmaking as a way of life, how he’s been doing it for 30 years, and what you can learn in this course so you too can make adventure filmmaking your life.

From idea to reality

Ideas can come from anywhere, sometimes even on the back of a boarding pass. In this lesson, Russ explains how to develop an idea and turn it into a real adventure.

The research

The devil is in the details, and in this lesson Russ outlines everything that goes into the research phase of your adventure. From team dynamics and planning to route planning, permits, accommodations, safety and how to keep family and fans informed along the way.

The team

In this lesson, Russ walks through the roles of your adventure movie, from director, producer, camera crew, production assistant, DIT, and executive producer, to how to find and select your team, keeping an eye on team dynamics and even joining another adventure team first to give you an idea of ​​which roles fit your personality.

The budget

Before you can find the money to fund your adventure movie, you need to create a budget. In this lesson, Russ talks about preliminary expenses when planning your adventure, insurance and safety, and how to budget for a worst-case scenario to prepare for any scenario.

How to find the money

Now we come to the defining part of planning your adventure movie: finding the money to pay for it. In this lesson, Russ provides insight into pitching your adventure, working with publishers, distribution companies, sponsors, tourism authorities, philanthropists and grants, and personal advice on persevering in the face of challenges. funding challenges.

The talent

Who will be the storyteller of your adventure film? You might be considering introducing yourself or using voiceover, but Russ also has some tips for working with celebrities and other talent that generate interest and audience for your project.

Logistics and Planning

In this lesson, Russ walks you through the logistical planning of your adventure, from choosing your route and creating a schedule, to checking safety training, vaccinations and passports before you leave. . The key is to be prepared for logistical issues so they don’t become major setbacks during the trip.

Camera equipment

When filming an adventure, Russ advises to keep it small, fast and nimble. From camera choices and audio recording to bonus shots using gimbals or drones, on an adventure it’s important to be prepared for equipment failure when you expect it the most. less.

Last checks

It’s almost time to go on an adventure, but first you want to make sure everything is in place. Do you have PR photos for your sponsors or do you plan to take them during your trip? Are your friends and family ready to take you away for a while? Have you organized all your notes? Finally, you are off on an adventure!

Who will be in front of the camera? Talent Tips in “Adventure Filmmaking with Russ Malkin”

Working on this course, I learned a ton of wisdom about travel while making movies, but for me the most impactful part of Russ Malkin’s course is his advice on talent. Of course, for many of us with a bit of video production skills, we could very easily go out and create a travel documentary featuring ourselves. You can go out this weekend and film yourself exploring a nearby area, add some voice-over or vlog-style narration, upload it to YouTube, and see what happens. It’s already much more of an advantage you have over others who don’t know how to shoot or edit.

For many of us, however, we don’t have that magic sauce when we’re on camera. And so if you want to travel while filming, you’ll have to find on-camera talent. Russ found success with actors and took them out of their comfort zone into the wild world off the set.

But as Russ points out, you don’t really know if the talent really clicks the camera until you try. Some people are born artists and can create an extremely successful brand by going on an adventure near or far. For these talented people, brands and sponsors can naturally gravitate around them, turning a weekend of exploration into a career.

But for you, it might mean an entirely different approach. Maybe your talent will be someone in your network or someone you have to introduce cold. An influential person, or an embedded audience, will naturally be more appealing to viewers and funders than an unknown person. But it’s not just social media influencers that have celebrity-like appeal. Maybe there’s a local businessman, athlete, chef, or respected scientist. Taking someone on the road who already has specific experience can even give you ideas of travel destinations and people you’ll meet along the way.

Adventure cinema isn’t just about combining travel and video, it’s also the product of putting a certain person in a unique environment and seeing what happens. I hope your brain is overflowing with ideas. For more tips on how to take your ideas and turn them into a real adventure, this course from Russ Malkin on MZed is a must.

To test or not to test: this is the question that many prospective students ask themselves when they consider whether to apply and how best to prepare for masters in management.

Overwhelmed by the stresses and distractions of undergraduate study, many may feel unenthusiastic about even more exams. But the extra effort can pay off with a significant number of trade schools.

Admissions officers say it’s one of the first in a series of decisions that can ease the path to a successful application, from reviewing different courses and thinking about resumes and motivations , careful planning of interviews.

Some tests are country-specific, such as the Common Admission Test in India or the Tage Mage in France. Others are international in scope, including the US Graduate Record Examinations. One of the most popular is the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), which assesses skills rather than knowledge by probing quantitative skills and verbal, critical, and integrated reasoning.

Ranking FT Masters in Management 2022 — top 100

Italian University Luiss moves up 23 places in 2022 FT MiM Rankings

Find out which schools are in our Masters in Management ranking. Find out how the table was compiled and read the rest of our coverage at ft.com/mim.

The GMAT is often not required for pre-experience master’s courses and requires additional preparation time and costs – ranging from registration fees to, in some cases, tutoring. Still, the results help provide schools with a standardized benchmark, especially for international students from systems that admissions staff may be less familiar with. Michelle Sisto, Associate Dean of Graduate Studies at Edhec Business School in France, says: “We see the GMAT as a sign of commitment.

Sangeet Chowfla, outgoing director of GMAC, which administers the GMAT, says one of the benefits of the exam is that students probe their own abilities. “It’s a proven predictor of classroom performance, so it’s useful for them to measure their own readiness. It’s a big investment to go to business school, so your score can tell you something about your experience and how comfortable you’ll be.

Deciding whether or not to take a test is one of many steps for test takers. Sisto emphasizes the importance of research, to explore the characteristics of different business schools and degrees by reading and talking to alumni. She warns that some institutions, or individual courses, are not accredited by national education authorities, which limits the ability of foreign applicants to obtain a work visa and stay in the host country after graduation, for example example.

Like her peers at other schools, she says that in application letters and interviews, candidates should be clear about their motivations for studying and career plans, and be prepared to back up their statements with ideas and examples. . “A very common mistake is trying to say things you think the interviewer wants to hear rather than what you really mean,” she warns.

Ciara Sutton, program director for the Master of International Business at the Stockholm School of Economics, warns that an application that is too perfect or too generic can “result in the applicant not revealing enough of their own personality. We have to see how a candidate differs from their peers and what they will bring to the cohort”.

“The desire to join our specific program must be demonstrated by disclosing that the candidate has read what we offer, spoken to current students or graduates, and actively chosen our program,” she adds.

Filipa Luz, Head of Marketing at the Nova School of Business and Economics in Lisbon, says: “We are looking for candidates who have different ideas and mindsets for their future life: we are looking for students who want to change the world, make a difference , to be future leaders.

While Covid-19 has accelerated a trend of reducing in-person interviews, especially for applicants from remote areas, some schools are still using them. Many more have moved to online variants.

While Zoom has reduced the risk of the weak handshake leaving a bad impression, online chats bring other pitfalls. Sisto advises candidates to conduct practice interviews. “You need to be able to convey your excitement online so you can connect: really look at the camera rather than the screen, sit up straight, and make sure the foreground is more eye-catching than the background where you you find,” she said.

Andrew Keating is an Associate Professor overseeing the MSc in International Management at UCD Michael Smurfit Graduate Business School in Dublin. “We are looking for critical reflection,” he says. “Give an example of how and why you achieved something; and what you learned when something failed and how you would approach it again. If you said you wanted to work in technology, explain what you will be doing specifically; or quote a company and explain why it succeeded, to show that you are capable of analysis. »

Appearance matters too, even online. “Don’t show up in a t-shirt and shorts,” advises Keating. “You don’t have to be dressed and booted, but at least smart. You need to make eye contact with the person asking the question, while being aware of others in the room.

Eye contact doesn’t just demonstrate confidence. It can also help focus on what investigators are looking for. “A lot of times candidates don’t listen to the question, get nervous and start spouting something off the top of their heads,” he says. “Listen to what is asked. »

The secrets of successful job applications

  • Do your research: identify the specificities of each school and sector

  • Talk to the elders to gather more information.

  • Internships and work experience demonstrate commitment

  • Volunteer work, sports, or activities in other student activities show commitment

  • The GMAT is not always required but demonstrates commitment and tests aptitude. The test costs £225; practical test £41; official guide £40

  • Be authentic and not generic in your application

  • Reflect on your accomplishments and challenges overcome

  • Be professional in interviews: be smart, maintain eye contact, answer the question

“I can easily understand these aspirations. But I can’t forget that I was crowned Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. – Addressing Scottish and Welsh devolution proposals in his Silver Jubilee Address to Parliament in 1977.

“Like all the best families, we have our share of eccentricities, brash and temperamental youngsters and family disagreements.” – Speaking of the Commonwealth in 1989.

“Grief is the price we pay for love.” – In a message to New York after the September 11 terrorist attacks.

“Of course, for many this time of year will be tinged with sadness: some mourn the loss of those dear to them, and others miss distant friends and family members for their safety, while all what they would really want for Christmas is a simple hug or a squeeze of the hand If you are among them you are not alone, and let me assure you of my thoughts and prayers – Christmas message 2020, during the pandemic.

DVIDS – News – Mortuary Affairs Course to Undergo Significant Changes https://poterefotografico.com/dvids-news-mortuary-affairs-course-to-undergo-significant-changes/ Fri, 02 Sep 2022 18:16:00 +0000 https://poterefotografico.com/dvids-news-mortuary-affairs-course-to-undergo-significant-changes/ FORT LEE, Va. — The Joint Mortuary Affairs Center will soon add digital fingerprinting and dental x-rays to its curriculum for Advanced Individual Training students.

FORT LEE, Va. — The Joint Mortuary Affairs Center will soon add digital fingerprinting and dental x-rays to its curriculum for Advanced Individual Training students.

According to Sgt. Major Daniel Davenport, leader of the JMAC, the important new lessons to come from the 92M Mortuary Affairs Specialist Course will reinforce the use of current technologies and “bring it into the 22nd century”. Each will greatly improve positive ID capture abilities in the field.

“These two scientific methods will allow us to assist the Armed Forces Medical Examiner in making a positive identification before the remains leave the (operating theater),” Davenport said.

Under current procedures, the remains are sent to Dover Air Force Base, Del., where medical examiners make final decisions on identification.

The seven-week Mortuary Affairs Course trains soldiers and Marines to properly locate, identify and handle human remains and personal effects on battlefields and other environments. Students are also trained to assist with military arrangements and honors at burial sites.

JMAC recently received the green light from the Defense Health Agency to proceed with the integration of fingerprinting and dental x-ray courses into the 92M training curriculum, although full implementation could take at least three years in because of a rigid change process.

The inclusion of digital fingerprints and dental x-rays represents the most significant change in course content over the past decade, said William M. “Bill” Ellerman, director of JMAC.

“Before 2015, mortuary affairs specialists took fingerprints – but not digital fingerprints – in the operational environment as well as dental records,” he said. “In 2015 the rules changed as these tasks were removed.”

The armed forces medical examiner assumed responsibility for fingerprinting and dental X-rays seven years ago, Ellerman said. Today, given the likelihood of large-scale combat operations, and thus a greater mortuary mission, it makes sense to reintroduce these skills into course instruction so that Soldiers and Marines can provide greater functionality in the field.

“Looking at our peer and near-peer adversaries and what’s happening in the world today,” Ellerman said, “the potential for large-scale combat is always there, so we need to take the necessary steps to bring our skills – for 92M and (Marine Corps) 0472 – on par with the capabilities of our civilian counterparts across the United States”

In the field, quickly capturing information (such as fingerprints and dental records) leading to a positive identification can alleviate family suffering, Ellerman said.

“Getting this information as quickly as possible and putting it in the right hands for positive identification advances in the process of issuing death certificates, and therefore, pays death benefits, final burial or funeral rites “, did he declare. “Everything we do at the theater about this supports families.”

In addition to fingerprinting and digital dental x-rays, forensic photography tasks will also be included, Ellerman said. All three will be gradually added to lesson plans at the familiarization level.

“We are currently leaning forward and have started integrating them into the POI from a background knowledge perspective,” Ellerman said. “We want to do this as much as possible so that students – even if we don’t have the full range of equipment here to train them – can easily make the transition.”

Equipment needed to support the new lessons includes digital fingerprint capture pads, digital bitewing X-ray machines and 35mm DSLR cameras, Ellerman said. No equipment can be acquired until the proposed changes have been approved.

Leaders in the 92M career field have been advocating for teaching fingerprinting since the year it was removed from lesson plans, Ellerman said. These efforts came to nothing until the arrival of Davenport, who brought unique perspectives to the argument.

“His experience and accomplishments are remarkable,” the manager said. “Very few 92-Mikes get to fill the positions he did. He was in the right place at the right time during the right operations.

Davenport, a former infantryman, was a first sergeant in the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency and was MA program manager for US Central Command and US Pacific Command. Prior to coming here, he was NCO Mortuary Affairs and Assistant MA Program Director, US European Command.

When he took up his post at Fort Lee, Davenport said he spoke with JMAC experts, commented on students and teaching, and developed a plan to make the most of student abilities against operational demands. . Within weeks, he spoke directly with the Armed Forces Medical Examiner, who then led the training.

“He brings credibility and the strategic and operational knowledge base and can speak the same language as senior leaders,” Ellerman said. “That’s what took this from what we’ve done since 2015 to a pull-up and take-off in 2022.”

Davenport said he was persistent.

“I tell soldiers all the time, if there’s something you’re passionate about and a change needs to be made because it makes sense and improves strength, don’t stop; don’t take no for an answer,” he said.

An effort to add an additional skill identifier to the 92M military occupational specialty and expand the civilian credentialing program is next on Davenport’s agenda.

The Quartermaster School’s JMAC 92M course trains approximately 200 students per year. These individuals continue to serve in one of two active duty mortuary affairs units based at Fort Lee or one of the many reserve elements located throughout the country. Mortuary affairs The soldiers are among those still assigned to missions in the Middle East.
