At that time the two countries entered into a bilateral agreement, the Compact of Free Association. Under the Compact, the U.S. government provides the Marshall Islands defense and substantial annual economic assistance, mainly through a series of grants to the Marshall Islands government. On April 30, 2003, the Republic of the Marshall Islands Foreign Minister Gerald Zackios and U.S. Ambassador Mike Senko signed the amended Compact of Free Association Agreement that had been under negotiation for about four years. The new agreement included funding for grants, a trust fund of more than $800 million and a pact for the extension of use of Kwajalein Atoll through 2066, valued at about $2.3 billion.

3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 Jay Monnot, left, and Rob Ewbank compete in the Labor Day Tennis Tournament. Ebeye team claims coconut trophy in tennis tournamentAruo Aluka serves up the ball during the doubles tennis tournament.Article and photos by Michael Sakaio USAKA Host Nation OfficeWhile most tennis fans may have focused on the U.S. Open at Flushing Meadows, N.Y., the Kwaj tennis die-hards and their dedicated following could not wait for its own “Open” to kick off. Welcome to the 2013 Kwaj-Ebeye Labor Day Doubles Tennis Tournament. With no cloud cover, no rain and prevailing winds at a stand-still, the annual Labor Day tennis matchup between the Ebeye tennis team and Kwajalein tennis team kicked off at 9:30 a.m., with welcome remarks and tournament guidelines from Marc Rivera, president of the Kwajalein Tennis Club. Fr. Tetoanikai gave an invocation, blessing the day’s event and tournament. The matchup began with the Kwaj team of Matt Sova and Barnabas Laeo against Romeo Alfred and Tetoanikai at Court 1, while Berny Price and Diego Pabon competed against Reni Langrine and Aruo Aluka at Court 2. The hustle and consistent serving of Sova/Laeo proved to be the difference in overcoming the doubles team of Romeo/Tetoanikai. While the scores of the Price/ Pabon vs. Langrine/Aluka at Court 2 appear lopsided, this highly anticipated matchup lived up to its expectations of power serves, beautiful forehands and exciting net plays. The tournament also displayed three Kwaj mixed doubles teams of Larry Cavender and Prescilla Consul, Kelly and Miguel Busquets, and DeAnn Brower and Mark Donoghue. All three teams displayed all out effort, but succumbed to the athletic prowess and hustle of Rantak Lincoln and Koba Jude, Handel Dribo and Francis Harry, and Jeru Roadrik and Bingo Jajo, respectively. The height advantage and high percentage serving of Tommy Ryon and Ben Souther were not enough to slow down Richie Tabu and Polen Kumtak. With the Ebeye teams showing no signs of slowing down, Kwaj had to dig deep to keep pace or face a lopsided defeat. To curb this possibility, the Kwaj teams of Jay Monnot and Rob Ewbank (in the sun-matching out t of bright orange T-shirts) and Marc Rivera and Chris Pollard registered much-needed wins for Kwaj. Still, Ebeye was not to be denied. Bolten Joel and Patrick Amos, with their hard precision serving, more than outlasted Ray Drefus and Mike Sakaio. Hope was still alive for a respectable showing for the Kwaj team and thus, the last match of the day carried the weight of the tournament. The team of Almer Latdrik and Jackson James withstood the late charge of Helbert Alfred and Labtak Langrus in the second set to seal the Ebeye team’s victory. With visible exhaustion in the faces of the players, the enthusiastic applause of the thinning crowd, and still no breeze to accompany the hot, mid-afternoon sun, Rivera closed the tournament with the presentation of the tournament cup to the Ebeye team. He thanked the participants for their valiant efforts on the court and the outstanding display of sportsmanship, the fans for their support, and remarked on the possibility for yet another re-match, perhaps sooner than later.

Hourglass ReportsKwajalein Scuba Club hosted the annual Splash for Trash event on Monday morning. Scuba divers and beachcombers volunteered in the effort to keep KwajaleinÂ’s beaches and lagoon clean. Divers were able to retrieve underwater trash in the harbor, including two bicycles and a chair. Topsiders found toothbrushes, hairbrushes and 312 ip ops, including a matching pair. Tires, rope, plastic and glass were found and carried to the trash pile.Prizes were given for a variety of categories. The Botes family won the most unique prize for the uorescent light and a refrigerator door. The Hess family won the prize for the most real estate covered; they went all the way to the Country Club picking up trash. The prize for the largest item recovered went to Kiana Ziemba who found a very large spool. The Weiland family came up with Nicorette gum and a glue stick to win the prize for the most toxic to the environment. All participants received a gift certi cate for a KSC T-shirt. The grand prize winner was Isaac Weiland for being the junior enthusiast; he won a brand new bicycle.

It is an awareness campaign initiated by FEMA, aimed at strengthening the security, safety and resilience of our Nation by encouraging individuals, families and organizations to take signi cant action toward making themselves and their communities fully prepared for unexpected situations. The goal is to increase Army resilience and our nation’s readiness for all-hazard events. Every member of the Army community plays an important role in preparing for unexpected threats to the community. Important facets of the program include the ideas that risk is a shared responsibility, unexpected dangers and events can happen anywhere and at any time, persistent vigilance can prevent and prepare us for unforeseen all-hazard events, leaders must drive a culture of change, and units must provide the best preparedness training and education possible. Army installations face a wide range of hazards, natural and man-made, that must be addressed. Natural hazards include hurricane, tornado, tsunami, ood, wild re, severe storm, earthquake, volcano, drought and extreme heat or cold. Man-made hazards include chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear and highyield explosive. Ready Army promotes a culture of preparedness throughout the Army. The Ready Army tenets are: be informed, make a plan, build a kit and get involved. Prepare yourself and your family for a disaster by making an emergency preparedness plan. In this plan, include the following: • Emergency contact numbers • Neighborhood and regional meeting areas • Evacuation routes • Utility shut-off information • Vital records Include the following considerations in your plan, as appropriate: • Special needs populations • Pets • Emergency plans at family member work areas, daycare and schools • Practice your plan at least twice a year and update it accordingly Survival kit recommendations: • Non-perishable food and water to last for at least 72 hours • First aid kit, AM/FM radio, personal sanitation, local maps, wrench/pliers, ashlight, extra batteries, can opener • Anticipate limited services for days or even weeks (electricity, gas, water, sewage treatment, telephone service) Maintain your kit: • Store canned food in a cool, dry place • Store boxed food in tightly closed plastic or metal containers • Change stored food and water supplies every six months Store your kit: • Keep in designated place as you may leave your home quickly • Keep a kit of emergency supplies in your car in case you become stranded (include jumper cables, ashlights and extra batteries, rst aid kit, necessary medications, non-perishable food, bottled water, AM/ FM radio, blankets)


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013 This October, Kwajalein Hospital is proud to participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. About 1 in 8 women born today in the United States will get breast cancer at some point during her life. After skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common kind of cancer in women. The good news is that many women can survive breast cancer if it’s found and treated early. The American Cancer Society recommends routine annual screening mammograms beginning at age 40. Talk to a doctor about your risk for breast cancer, especially if a close family member has had breast or ovarian cancer. Your doctor can help you decide when and how often to get mammograms. A mammogram, or X-ray of the breast, currently remains the gold standard for the early detection of breast cancer. According to the National Cancer Institute, “The bene ts of mammography nearly always outweigh the potential harm from the radiation exposure. Mammograms require very small doses of radiation. The risk of harm from this radiation exposure is extremely low.” Kwajalein Hospital was awarded a 3-year term of accreditation in mammography in February 2012 from the American College of Radiology. The ACR awards accreditation to facilities for the achievement of high practice standards after a peer-review evaluation of the practice. Evaluations are conducted by board certi ed physicians and medical physicists who are experts in the eld. They assess the quali cations of the personnel and the adequacy of facility equipment. A facility must be accredited by the ACR in order to comply with Federal Drug Administration regulations. Kwajalein’s mammography program is also inspected every year by the FDA. During its annual inspection, the FDA evaluates the facilities equipment, personnel, quality assurance program, record keeping and other aspects of the mammography program. To maintain FDA certi cation, each mammography technologist must perform 200 exams in a two year period. Last year, Kwajalein Hospital only performed 128 mammograms. With a dwindling population, it becomes harder and harder to maintain these numbers. It’s possible the Kwajalein Hospital could lose FDA certi cation of the mammography program if the numbers are not met. We encourage all women to take charge of your health by performing routine breast self-exams, establishing ongoing communication with your doctor, getting an annual clinical breast exam and scheduling your routine screening mammograms.For more information, call 53522. Breast Cancer Myths Myth: Finding a lump in your breast means you have breast cancer. The Truth: Only a small percentage of breast lumps turn out to be cancer. But if you discover a persistent lump in your breast or notice any changes in breast tissue, it should never be ignored. It is very important that you see a physician for a clinical breast exam. He or she may possibly order breast imaging studies to determine if this lump is of concern or not. Myth: If you have a family history of breast cancer, you are likely to develop breast cancer, too. The Truth: While women who have a family history of breast cancer are in a higher risk group, most women who have breast cancer have no family history. Statistically only about 10 percent of individuals diagnosed with breast cancer have a family history of this disease. • If you have a rst degree relative with breast cancer (mother, daughter, sister) who developed breast cancer below the age of 50, you should consider some form of regular diagnostic breast imaging starting 10 years before the age of your relative’s diagnosis. •If you have a second degree relative with breast cancer (grandmother, aunt) who was diagnosed with breast cancer, your risk increases slightly, but it is not in the same risk category as those who have a rst degree relative with breast cancer. • If you have multiple generations diagnosed with breast cancer on the same side of the family, or if there are several individuals who are rst degree relatives to one another, or several family members diagnosed under age 50, the probability increases that there is a breast cancer gene contributing to the cause of this familial history. Myth: Antiperspirants and deodorants cause breast cancer. The Truth: Researchers at the National Cancer Institute are not aware of any conclusive evidence linking the use of underarm antiperspirants or deodorants and the subsequent development of breast cancer. Myth: Men do not get breast cancer; it only affects women. The Truth: Quite the contrary, each year it is estimated that approximately 2,190 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and 410 will die. While this percentage is still small, men should also check themselves periodically by doing a breast selfexam while in the shower and reporting any changes to their physicians. Breast cancer in men is usually detected as a hard lump underneath the nipple and areola. Men carry a higher mortality rate than women do, primarily because awareness among men is less and they are less likely to assume a lump is breast cancer, which can cause a delay in seeking treatment.

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Sept. 14, 2013Four steps to prevent foodborne illnessHourglass ReportsSeptember is National Food Safety Month. What can you do to protect yourself, your family and friends from food poisoning? Following these simple steps on a daily basis can help keep everyone safer from food poisoning at home. CLEAN: Wash hands and surfaces often. Illness-causing bacteria can survive in many places around your kitchen. • Wash hands for 20 seconds with soap and running water. Scrub the backs of your hands, between your ngers and under your nails. • Rinsing utensils, countertops and cutting boards with water won’t do enough to stop bacteria from spreading. Clean utensils and small cutting boards with hot, soapy water (110 F), rinse with clean water (120 F), then sanitize surfaces and cutting boards with a bleach solution. Two tablespoons of household-type chlorine bleach in four gallons of water provides a starting solution of approximately 100-ppm Free Available Chlorine. Do not use scented chlorine bleach. • Wash fruits and vegetables, but not meat, poultry or eggs. Even if you plan to peel fruits and vegetables, it’s important to wash them rst because bacteria can spread from the outside to the inside as you cut or peel them. SEPARATE: Don’t cross-contaminate. Even after you’ve cleaned your hands and surfaces thoroughly, raw meat, poultry, seafood and eggs can still spread illness-causing bacteria to ready-to-eat foods.• Use separate cutting boards, plates and utensils for raw produce, meat, poultry, seafood and eggs.• Keep meat, poultry, seafood and eggs separate from all other foods while you’re shopping at the grocery store and in the refrigerator. COOK: While many people think they can tell when food is “done” simply by checking its color and texture, there’s no way to be sure it’s safe without following a few important but simple steps. Use a food thermometer to make sure food reaches its safe minimum cooking temperature. • Internal temperatures should be 145F for whole meats, 160F for ground meats, and 165F for all poultry. Eggs should be cooked until the yolk is rm. • During meal times, keep food hot (at 140 F or above). After meals, refrigerate leftover food quickly; keep it cold (at 40 F or below). • Microwave food to 165 F. CHILL: Illness-causing bacteria can grow in many foods within two hours unless you refrigerate them. During the summer, cut that time down to one hour. • Refrigerate foods that tend to spoil more quickly, like fruits and vegetables, milk, eggs and meats, within two hours. Warm foods will chill faster if they are divided into several clean, shallow containers. • Thaw or marinate foods in the refrigerator, never on the counter or in the kitchen sink. • Know when to throw food out.

Exercise boosts the immune system and helps you to keep your weight in check. With as little as three hours of exercise per week, a woman can begin to lower her risk of breast cancer. • Can a healthy diet help to prevent breast cancer? A nutritious, low-fat diet with plenty of fruits and green and orange vegetables can help reduce the risk of developing breast cancer. A high-fat diet increases the risk because fat triggers estrogen production that can fuel tumor growth.• Does smoking cause breast cancer?Recent research in 2012 has con rmed that smoking is a contributing risk factor for developing breast cancer. Additionally, second hand smoke is also a risk factor for cancer. Each week you are smoke-free, you give yourself increasing advantages for a healthier life. • Can drinking alcohol increase the risk of breast cancer? Moderation is key. Although we know that more than one drink per day increases risks, to date there are no studies that demonstrate directly that the more a person drinks, the greater their risk for cancer. In some cases, drinking one glass of wine a day can offer heart-health bene ts. If you drink alcohol, this is an important topic to discuss with your doctor so that you will know what limits are best for you to observe. • Is there a link between oral contraceptives and breast cancer? There is an increased risk of breast cancer for women who have been using birth control pills for more than ve years. However, due to the low amount of hormones in birth control pills today, the risk is relatively small. • Is there a link between hormone replacement therapy and breast cancer? Yes. HRT was added to the carcinogenic list by the American Cancer Society in the early 2000s. It is recommended that women with known risks not be placed on HRT to control menopausal symptoms. • How often should I do a breast self-exam? Give yourself a breast self-exam once a month. Look for any changes in breast tissue, such as changes in size, feeling a palpable lump, dimpling or puckering of the breast, inversion of the nipple, redness or scaliness of the breast skin, redness or scaliness of the nipple/areola area, or discharge of secretions from the nipple. Women should perform their breast self exam 7-10 days after their menstrual period starts. If they are no longer menstruating, then she should select the same day of the month to perform this self-exam. What to look for is a change from last month’s exam to this month’s exam. It is not unusual to have lumpy or bumpy breasts. If having trouble remembering where you felt lumps last month, draw a diagram of where the lumps, bumps, grooves and other ndings are felt so that this can be used as a reminder from month to month. There is no added value in doing breast self-exams more often than monthly. Also the ndings may be different as well, in relationship to where a woman is in her menstrual cycle. • Are mammograms painful? Mammography does compress the breasts and can sometimes cause slight discomfort for a very brief period of time. Patients who are sensitive should schedule their mammograms a week after their menstrual cycle so that the breasts are less tender. Your doctor may say it is ne to take acetaminophen an hour before the X-ray is performed to prevent discomfort. • How does menstrual and reproductive history affect breast cancer risks? Women who began their menstrual cycles before age 12, have no biological children, had their rst child at 30 or older, or began menopause after 55 are at a higher risk. This means that research has proven that the number of menstrual cycles a woman has over time in uences risk. • How often should I go to my doctor for a checkup? You should have a physical every year which should include a clinical breast exam and pelvic exam. If any unusual symptoms or changes in your breasts occur before your scheduled visit, do not hesitate to see the doctor immediately.
