Since 1943, scuba diving has become a famous activity practiced the world over after the invention of the aqualung by Jacques-Yves Cousteau.  Diving could be dangerous if you are not qualified to do so but there are now many training programs to meet the requirements as a diver.  There is PADI, NAUI and CMAS after, divers can rent equipment, request air fills, and dive without any higher supervision but it is always recommended to dive with a buddy.

If you are planning to go diving here are some great places you can visit: 

Vinales, Cuba.  Maria la Gorda and Cayo Levisa are Vinales’ great diving site and it is two of the most candid diving spots in the world.  The stunning Maria la Gorda’s black corals overflowing with marine life such as barracudas and red snappers is a good choice for a diving spot.  While Cayo Levisa is a dreamy mangrove-island on a 3km long coral-reef.

Dahab, Egypt.  For divers of all levels Dehab is an easy shore access of a great spot for divers.  It has deep water and extreme visibility.  You can have the chance to see not only large numbers of reef species but also the occasional pelagic and even the odd shark.

Bali, Indonesia.  Warm tropical waters, marine landscaped coral reefs, wreck diving and abundant tropical fish and mammals, these are just few of what Bali can offer divers.  Not to mention there are plenty of dive sites all around the compact island and each with crystal waters and the opportunity to dive with dolphinsThe three of the top spots are  Menjangan IslandTulamben and the island of Nusa Penida. 

Boracay, Philippines is a Pilipino national marine preserve.  It is one of the most famous diving sites in Southeast Asia.  This is one of the great beaches in the world which makes it a great choice for a holiday vacation plus it offers a wide range of dive activities.  You will also enjoy the numerous good quality resorts, restaurants, bars and nightlife.

Koh Tao, Thailand.  If you want a pure relaxation and a getaway from the outside world, then this is definitely the perfect place for you.  This place is small Tropical Island covered in jungle, surrounded by many quiet, palm tree covered beaches.  You can enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving.  You will definitely enjoy the corals and the turtles.

Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia.  By the bay of Kota Kinabalu Tunku Abdul Rahman National Park is a marine park made up of a number of islands.  The waters here offer divers a first glimpse of Borneo’s profuse array of corals and underwater creatures.  Its calm water is ideal for macro and close up photography, with a World War II Japanese freighter wreck nearby for the adventurous.

Army engineers of the US military has announced its plans to make a new gear for female soldiers that will provide them with more protection and make them more alert in combat.

 

In a study made by the US Army it was discovered that the ill-fitting military gear actually interferes with the women’s combat performance, citing examples like difficulty in boarding the vehicles and taking proper aim with their weapons.

 

This initiative to redesign body armor started in 2009 when women from the 101st Airborne division felt uncomfortable wearing the gear during the war.

 

“It rubbed on the hips, and the vests were too long in the front, so that when you had female soldiers climbing stairs or climbing up a hill or a tree, or sitting for a long time in a vehicle, that would create pressure points that in some instances could impact blood flow and cause some discomfort,” said Lt. Col. Frank Lozan, who is helping design the body armor.

 

However, engineers are faced with challenges because making new female body armor will present potential weaknesses on the material. This is because the material of the armor they use will get heavier as you add more curves.

 

“There are some complex curvatures that come into play with female hard-armor plates. I could make female hard-armor, but it would be twice as heavy,” Lozano said.

 

They  are now exploring “unique chemical designs” to make lighter but effective plates.

 

“It became clear to us that there was a difference in torso length. The other point that we realized is that there is a significant difference in shoulder width. I read this data, and it seems so obvious,” says the product manager for the Army’s soldier protective-equipment program.

 

Black Hawk Adventures reports that they are planning to design a body armor specifically for women with adjustments like narrower shoulders, shorter torso and curves in the hips and chest so they can fit more naturally.

 

Eight female sizes gears are now being tested by 100 female soldiers of the 101st Airborne Division. In the meantime, female soldiers still have to choose from 11 different sizes of Army-standard body armor.

 

US military officials recognize that this feat will be an engineering challenge so such armor may take years to make.

A former nanotechnology scientist of Sandia National Laboratories pleaded not guilty to federal charges of selling intellectual property and research to institutes in China.

Jianyu Huang was arraigned last week on 1 count of false statements and 5 counts of federal program fraud as he was accused of sharing information from his post in the Sandia lab’s Center for Integrated Nanotechnologies since 2009. However, the charge was only for theft of federal property and was not for stolen classified information.

He reportedly sold research on nanotech that belongs to the US to government-run Chinese schools like Harbin Institute of Technology and Peking University, claiming them as his own.

The indictment accuses Huang of selling USD 25,000 worth of “materials, equipment, time and work product of the company staff along with intangible property” between 2009 and 2012, on 5 different instances.

 

One count of false statement included in the indictment stemmed from Huang’s alleged lying to a counterintelligence officer of Sandia about bringing a Sandia-owned laptop to his trip to China on July. Employees of Sandia are all required to undergo interviews before they can go on any international travel and are not allowed to bring company-owned equipment without permission.

Black Hawk Adventures said that Huang has been fired in April due to violations of their procedures and asserted that he never had access to classified information that might risk national security. Sandia is responsible in making sure the country’s nuclear stockpile is secure and helps in addressing national security threats.

Huang had been working in the nanotechnology field (the science of matter manipulation on the molecular level) since 2007 but in an open and unclassified science facility which does not have any access to classified data, according to Sandia’s statement.

“Sandia applies rigorous control and protection practices to all information regardless of the level of that information. Sandia expects all employees to follow specific and defined procedures. All employees are aware of the consequences when they fail to follow these procedures.”

On the other hand, the defendant’s side is insisting that this is just another case of litigation in federal court where the state charges first and then discloses later. Huang’s trip to China was approved and authorized by Sandia itself, according to his lawyer.

According to the spokesperson of New Mexico’s Attorney Office, Elizabeth Martinez, Huang will continue to be in the federal custody in Santa Fe until such a time that he meets conditions for release.
