Intercept attempt fails in missile defense test off Hawaii
http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/201 … e-test-of/

HONOLULU (AP) – The U.S. Missile Defense Agency said it failed to intercept a ballistic missile during a test off Hawaii.

The failure came during a test conducted with Japan’s Defense Ministry late Wednesday.

The U.S. and Japan are jointly developing the interceptor to shoot down medium-range ballistic missiles. The allies have been investing in technology to counter North Korean missile threats.

As part of the test, a medium-range target missile was launched from the Pacific Missile Range Facility on Kauai late Wednesday. The USS John Paul Jones detected and tracked the missile. The ship launched the interceptor, but it failed to shoot down the target.

This was the second time the U.S. military has attempted an intercept with the Standard Missile-3 Block IIA. The previous attempt in February was successful.

SM-3 interceptors work with the agency’s Aegis Ballistic Missile Defense system, which is the naval component of the nation’s ballistic missile defenses. U.S. and Japanese navy ships are already equipped with earlier versions of the SM-3 interceptor and Aegis technology to track ballistic missiles.

US official: North Korea conducts rocket engine test
http://www.timesofisrael.com/us-officia … gine-test/

Device could potentially be fitted to an intercontinental ballistic missile, source says, as tensions between Washington, Pyongyang soar

WASHINGTON — North Korea has tested a rocket engine that could potentially be fitted to an intercontinental ballistic missile, a US official told AFP on Thursday, amid soaring tensions over Kim Jong-Un’s nuclear weapons program.

“A rocket engine was tested today,” the US official said on condition of anonymity, without providing any details.

News of the test came one day after US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson urged China, Pyongyang’s sole ally, to put more pressure on the North to rein in its atomic weapons and ballistic missile programs.

Calling North Korea the “top security threat” to the United States, Tillerson said China has a “diplomatic responsibility to exert much greater economic and diplomatic pressure on the regime if they want to prevent further escalation in the region.”

US President Donald Trump has made halting the North Korean nuclear threat his number one foreign policy priority.

“We watch North Korea’s actions closely. But we will not comment on intelligence,” Navy commander Gary Ross said in a emailed statement, declining to confirm the rocket engine test.

“We call on the DPRK to refrain from provocative, destabilizing actions and rhetoric, and to make the strategic choice to fulfill its international obligations and commitments and return to serious talks.”

Earlier on Thursday, North Korea called Trump a “psychopath” as tensions escalated following the death of American student Otto Warmbier, who was evacuated in a coma from North Korean detention last week. Warmbier died a few days later and was buried Thursday in Ohio.

Trump this week slammed the “brutal regime” in Pyongyang, and said he was determined to “prevent such tragedies from befalling innocent people at the hands of regimes that do not respect the rule of law or basic human decency.”

The UN Security Council earlier this month unanimously adopted a US-drafted resolution imposing new targeted sanctions on a handful of North Korean officials and entities, in response to a series of ballistic missile tests this year that are banned under UN resolutions.

However, North Korea slammed the latest UN sanctions as “mean” and vowed to press ahead with its missile and nuclear weapons programs.

Early last month, the North test-fired what appeared to be its longest-range ballistic missile to date, in a bid to bring the US mainland within reach.

The North has carried out two atomic tests and dozens of missile launches since the beginning of last year in its quest to develop a missile capable of delivering a nuclear warhead to the continental United States — something Trump has vowed “won’t happen.”

The US military “successfully intercepted an intercontinental ballistic missile target” in a test conducted amid concerns over the North’s weapons program, it said.

It’s really hard to diagnose issues like these when we are unable to duplicate them. I had received a few messages from people but when we log in ourselves and have no problems logging in and see others logged in it becomes very difficult to find out if there are any problems on our end. The next most likely cause is to assume the issue is coming from other peopele’s computers, a bad cookie they have on their system, a problem with their internet provider, or a problem with the internet somewhere between them and us. If we can’t duplicate the problem and have it happen to us, then it makes no sense that the problem would be on our end.

Well, finally this issue got bad enough that it finally did happen to us. It looks like Dan was able to find and resolve the problem.

Dan may have found a problem but it didn’t resolve the problem for me. I have had no problem logging in since North Idaho Patriot posted this until about 5pm today. Just now getting logged in.

I had to cut almost all the effected leaves off at the base and just hope for the best. :eek: ….They’ve come back just fine. I’m actually surprised how well they’ve done since almost all leaves were gone.

It was aggressive, but hey…It worked……. So far. :nervous:

You could heat up water and keep it in one of those large coolers with the spout. Then you’d have water at-the-ready for washing up, during the day (hands, face, after bathroom handwashing, etc.) Boiled water stays hot a long time in one of those and you”d be heating water up less often, using less fuel.

North Korean nuke test site sees more buildup as tensions rise
http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/06/21 … -rise.html

North Korea is continuing to mass resources at a known weapons testing site inside the country, a defense source told Fox News on Wednesday, prompting worries Pyongyang could be plotting to greenlight another provocative nuclear bomb test amid heightened tensions following the death this week of an American student who had been imprisoned by Kim Jong Un’s rogue regime.

“There are more people and more cars but nobody knows what that means,” a defense source said about surveillance of the nuke test site. The source added the buildup had been occurring for months.

North Korea is relentlessly pursuing its goal of building a nuclear bomb that can be mounted on an intercontinental ballistic missile. Pyongyang has already conducted five nuclear tests and recently launched an advanced missile that suggests a functioning ICBM may be within reach.

Seeking to deter North Korea, the Trump administration has so-far leaned on China, one of the few countries able to exert significant economic influence over Pyongyang. China told North Korea not to conduct a sixth nuclear test or risk sanctions, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told “Special Report” in April.

“We’re asking a lot of the Chinese,” Tillerson said. “We are going to test China’s willingness to help address this serious threat.”

But any hope of de-escalating the North Korea menace was dealt a serious blow on Monday when Otto Warmbier died.

Warmbier, a college student who had been part of a tour group visiting North Korea, was detained by the regime for 17 months, during which he was subject to a show trial and unknown cruelties before he was suddenly returned to the U.S. last week – in a comatose state. Doctors weren’t able to find evidence of fractures, meaning it was unlikely Warmbier was severely beaten; however, the cause of his coma couldn’t immediately be deduced and President Trump said Warmbier suffered “awful torturous mistreatment…at the hands of the North Koreans.” North Korea claims Warmbier slipped into the vegetative state after contracting botulism and taking a sleeping pill.

Trump appeared significantly moved by Warmbier’s death, tweeting Tuesday that “the U.S. once again condemns the brutality of the North Korean regime as we mourn its latest victim” before signaling that China’s chance to resolve the crisis via diplomatic means may have come and gone.

Even as intelligence indicated North Korea was continuing to move materials to the nuke test site, Trump tweeted: “While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!”

Earlier, Trump cryptically said the U.S. would “be able to handle it.”

North Korea will likely be a major topic when U.S. and Chinese diplomats meet in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday for the first Diplomatic and Security Dialogue, a summit that arose from the meeting between Trump and Xi in April. Tillerson and Secretary of Defense James Mattis are set to represent the U.S.

I also have one of those solar showers, and with the heat and sun we have here, a HOT shower is no problem.

That being said, for a “wash-up” with minimal water, there is always the method we always used when camping: a wet washcloth (you can put a SMALL amount of warmed water in a sink or other receptacle to wet and rinse) and soap. It doesn’t take much to clean up.
