Chilean Submarine Crew in San Diego for Three-Month Training

first_img Chilean submarine CS Carrera arrived in San Diego, California, on Sept. 1 to participate in the Diesel Electric Submarine Initiative (DESI) training program alongside U.S. Navy personnel. DESI is a three-month partnership that allows the U.S. and partner navies to work together to train and test underwater warfare capabilities through engagement tactics, weapon system tests and close-encounter operations. “This is a great opportunity for both navies to train together,” said Cmdr. Carlos Schnaidt, the commanding officer of CS Carrera. “We will be training with the world’s best Navy in dealing with the different threats of today. There will be challenges for both navies, but my crew and I are ready to participate in the training exercises.” The partnership assists in the development of a stronger Navy and setting historical milestones with the United States and countries like Chile. Other participating DESI partners include Colombia, Brazil and Peru. This is the fourth time that a Chilean submarine has participated in DESI, but it is the first time Carrera has visited San Diego and partnered with Commander, U.S. Third Fleet to conduct operations off the west coast. While in San Diego, Chilean Sailors and officers will stay with their U.S. counterparts in on-base quarters. They will also have the opportunity to visit the city of San Diego and engage with U.S. Sailors during scheduled social events in their honor. “The DESI program allows us to train together and improve our ability to combat the real-world threat of diesel-electric submarines,” said Rear Adm. Jack Hines, Deputy Commander, U.S. Third Fleet. “We have a long-standing partnership with the Chilean Navy, and this event is evidence of that relationship. The extent to which we are connected and interoperable with our international partners and allies is invaluable to our success in the maritime environment.” By Dialogo September 14, 2011last_img read more

(Photo by David Crane, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — A popular subgenre of LeBron James lore is the never-ending debate over how much help the King has – or doesn’t have.It was telling, then, that as James prepared to sub in midway through the fourth quarter of a single-digit game, Coach Luke Walton waved him off. Just for a minute.There was no doubt the Lakers (13-9) needed James to help finish off a 114-103 victory over the Dallas Mavericks (10-10) on Friday night. But they didn’t need him right at that moment – in crunch time, when he’s been absolutely essential for the team’s success so far this season.With James on the bench, Brandon Ingram made a pull-up and Kentavious Caldwell-Pope scored three points on a game-clinching run, a victory in which James (28 points, five rebounds, four assists) again had the starring role, but also one in which many teammates played a part.

They might not have gained momentum in the same way without Kyle Kuzma, who scored 13 of his 15 points in a red-hot third-quarter spree and added 12 rebounds and six assists. Tyson Chandler clocked his first double-double as a Laker (13 points, 12 rebounds), making all six of his shots as he logged long fourth-quarter minutes after JaVale McGee fouled out with 11:28 remaining.Of course, James did check back in, with five minutes left, and delivered the final body blows: a layup and a 3-pointer in the final four minutes that assured victory.Sign up for Home Turf and get exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily. Subscribe here.The winning formula was no secret: The Lakers attacked the rim with fury, logging 61 points in the paint and 31 fast-break points. It was a return to the fast tempo Walton has sought since Rajon Rondo was injured eight games ago.Walton, who has been recently beating the drum for more high-pace ball movement, looked comforted for an evening.“For the most part we played unselfish, we made the extra pass,” he said. “So that was really good to see.” How athletes protesting the national anthem has evolved over 17 years Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs Lakers practice early hoping to answer all questions center_img While Barnes had a game-high 29 points, the Lakers were able to virtually wrap up star rookie Luka Doncic, who was just 2 for 13 from the floor (six points, five assists). While the Slovenian sensation was able to get two blocked shots on James in one first-quarter sequence, Ingram played a big role in locking him down on offense, where he’s been averaging 19 points per game.“Just keeping my arms up, keeping my arms wide,” Ingram said of guarding Doncic. “Just trying to use my length to my advantage, using my hands and knowing that whenever the shot’s going up.”For the Lakers, it marked a second win over the Mavericks, another of last year’s draft lottery crowd that hopes to exceed expectations in the Western Conference. It also was the third time in five opportunities this season that the Lakers have swept back-to-back games.Walton spoke earlier in the week of becoming “a dominant home team,” and by starting the four-game homestand 2-0, they’ve improved their Staples Center record to 8-4. It could be even better after Sunday when Western Conference cellar dweller Phoenix (4-18) comes to town.This win got them to puff out their chests a little more as the season rolls on.“We have the ability to be able to have multiple guys put the ball in the basket, but when it comes, it comes with our ball movement and the way we play with pace,” James said. “That was the result of it tonight.” Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Trail Blazers, Grizzlies advance to NBA play-in game; Suns, Spurs see playoff dreams dashed It was James who helped pull the Lakers out of a stilted start, during which they made only one of their first 13 shots from 3-point range. Down by 15 early in the second quarter, James checked in and proceeded to reel off five dunks or layups in the next six minutes.After accruing two fouls and shooting just 1 for 6 in the first quarter, James said he was ready for a reset when he checked back in.“I’m my own biggest critic, so I already knew what type of first quarter I had and it resulted in us playing poor basketball in that first quarter,” he said. “Just hit that reset button.”Ingram was also a steady hand in the first half, scoring 13 of his 19 points before the intermission. But beyond any one performer, the team started to come alive, holding the Mavericks to 10-of-26 shooting from the field in the second quarter and starting to ping the ball around quickly.There were a handful of profound transition sequences, including Ball managing to ricochet a long heave from James to a streaking McGee, resulting in a dunk. But the one Walton liked the best was a delicate threading between four teammates – Chandler to Ball to Kuzma to Ingram for a dunk – that took only one dribble to traverse the court.“With the type of athletes we have and the type of personnel we have,” Walton said, “that’s what we’re good at.”After cutting the Dallas lead to five by halftime, the Lakers took the edge early in the third quarter, as Ball poked out a steal from Harrison Barnes’ hands and ran to the other end for a dunk. It put the Lakers ahead 61-60, and from there, it was hard to keep them from staying ahead.Related Articleslast_img read more
