3The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 32 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014 The death of Iroij or Leroj has special significance in Marshallese tradition. The term “Bwiloklan” or the “Breaking of the heavens” is associated with such a loss and refers to loss of power and influence of the Iroij at time of death. Upon death this power falls to earth and is gone until another Irooj is chosen.

Pictured top to bottom, left to right are Miguel Busquets, Jim Roby, Mandie Morris, Fred Cunningham, Adam Vail, Jenny Cunningham, Jeremy Gideon and Curtis Childress. Not pictured: Stan Jazwinski.Defending water polo champs unseated Article and photos by Sheila Gideon Managing EditorThe Family Pool buzzed with excitement and cries of victory and frustration Aug. 1 during the Summer Fun Inner-Tube Water Polo championship. The Turbo Turtles—a team stacked with veteran water polo players—were looking to make this year a three-peat victory. Chargogg—with plenty of veteran players of their own—were ready to take down the defending champs. Chargogg rallied after an intense rst half, taking advantage of a combination of goals by Mandie Morris and Adam Vail, not to mention stellar saves by goalie Curtis Childress, to shut down the Turbo Turtles. Winning their rst championship since 2009, Chargogg claimed the coconut trophy with a 50-30 victory. The Family Pool was under construction during the regular Water Polo season, so a short, Summer Fun season was organized by Community Activities later in the year. Six teams participated, some with the usual standout players and others with newbies that quickly impressed with their skills. Turbo Turtles have been a force to reckon with for years. Top scorers Bill Williamson and Bruce Premo dominate offense; most teams can’t comprehend how to defend Premo’s height or Williamson’s tricky behind-the-back shots. New-to-the-team, but old-to-thesport, Paul McGrew added another element of experienced play to the Turbo Turtles this season. When all three played, they dominated teams, even beating Soggy Bottoms 64-21 in the semi nals. Unfortunately, when it came time for the championship Aug. 1 both Premo and McGrew were off-island. That is the nature of sports on Kwaj, though. Chargogg’s season was somewhat of a saga. They started strong, defeating teams by 20-30 points some games. Then they lost players, either due to vacation or work. They squeaked out a tie against the USAGKA Splashers, playing two men down. Luckily, when they faced them again in the semi nals, top scorer Vail returned to assist with a dominating win. When Chargogg played Turbo Turtles for the rst time, they were still missing players and suffered a devastating loss, so they were hopeful that with their full team they could pull out a win in the championships. The rst half was intense and tensions were running high for both teams. Turbo Turtles started out strong, taking advantage of sunny skies that hindered Chargogg’s goalie Childress’ vision. Offensive leaders Williamson and Tommy Ryon red off shot after shot, taking the Turtles into an early lead. It took a while for Chargogg’s offense to get in their groove. After a hat trick from Morris, Chargogg took the lead at the end of the rst half. Chargogg carried their momentum from the rst half Bill Williamson passes the ball to teammate Tommy Ryon while Chargogg defenders Jim Roby and Miguel Busquets fend them off.

Due to the Family Pool construction, the season was at a different time of year and shorter than normal. However, it still was action-packed and lots of fun. This unique Kwaj sport takes a lot of effort by so many different people, and everyone involved did an excellent job. A huge thanks goes out to all the volunteer of cials. Everyone worked hard to help maintain the integrity of the league and make play safe and fun for everyone. Also, much appreciation goes to Jim Roby, Bill Williamson and Stan Jazwinski, who volunteered to teach and mentor all the volunteer of cials. Their knowledge, expertise, willingness to educate and volunteer is greatly appreciated. A special thanks goes to Zoe Spock, who painted the awesome Coconut Trophy for league winners, Chargogg. Finally, Inner-Tube Water Polo wouldn’t have been complete without the assistance of all of our coaches and managers. Your interest, efforts and support was greatly appreciated. The success of this year’s season was all due to the efforts of everyone involved. So again, thank you so much! We could not have done it without you. —Mandie Morris, Recreation and Programs Manager into the second half. Alley-oops between Jeremy Gideon and Vail created a comfortable distance in the score. “You goalie much better without the sun in your eyes,” Jenny Cunningham told teammate Childress. It was true. Childress blocked rocket after rocket from Williamson and Ryon. Teamed with veteran defender Jim Roby, Chargogg shut down Turtles’ offense. They only managed to score 10 points that half, while Chargogg racked up 26. It was a sweet victory for Chargogg. Not only did they unseat the defending champs, but they dedicated their win to teammate Stan Jazwinski, who had to leave the island during the season due to a death in the family. They will present the winning coconut trophy to Jazwinski when he returns. Chargogg’s Jeremy Gideon throws a pass over defender Adrienne Chavis during the water polo championship game.

David Mann addresses the young scholarship winners during a luncheon. He encouraged them to remain curious about the world around them and to continue exploring that world through work in science and technology. Three Kwaj kids pose for a photo with their peers and members of the Air, Space and Missile Defense Association. Ryan Hess and Sean Hepler—bottom row, second and third from left—and Morgan Dethlefsen—top row, second from right—were among the 16 youth who received the 2014 ASMDA Space Camp scholarship.Kwaj kids go to Space CampArticle and photos by Jason B. Cutshaw USASMDC/ARSTRAT HUNTSVILLE, Ala.— 16 young students had a summer adventure among the stars. The students, recipients of an Air, Space, and Missile Defense Association scholarship, had a chance to spend a week at Space Camp at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville June 29-July 4. On July 2, the scholarship winners were treated to lunch by members of the ASMDA board and had a chance to speak with those who made the week possible. “This is one of our favorite programs,” said Brenda Carr, U.S. Space and Rocket Center vice president of Development. “You join more than 200 students who have come through this program courtesy of ASMDA. There were a record number of applicants this year and judging was hard, so congratulations to each of you.” Since 1996, ASMDA has sponsored children, ages 9-11, of a parent or guardian currently assigned to the U.S. Army Space and Missile Defense Command/Army Forces Strategic Command, Program Executive Of ce Missiles and Space, Joint Functional Component Command for Integrated Missile Defense, Missile and Space Intelligence Center, NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, and Missile Defense Agency, whether military or government civilian, for their Space Camp scholarship. The 16 Space Camp students this year are from Madison, Brownsboro and Hampton Cove; Fort Greely and Delta Junction, Alaska; Fayetteville, Tenn.; Aliquippa, Penn.; Bellevue, Neb.; Colorado Springs, Colo.; and Kwajalein Atoll, Republic of the Marshall Islands. They are: Kennedy Gibson, Catherine Hare, Faith Johnson, Maanasi Limaye, Ethan Willcockson, Alena Crabtree, Woodson Hicks, Emmalee Jones, Steven Stalp II, Grif n Stevenson, Luke Guzman, Mackenna Guadagnoli, Tripp Foster, Morgan Dethlefsen, Sean Hepler and Ryan Hess. “We are so, so happy to welcome you this year to our 18th annual space camp,” said Doug Allen, ASMDA president. “You might ask why we are interested in you. You are the next generation coming up, and we want to give you everything we can to promote science and engineering. “Congratulations again for being selected, and we are so proud of you and hope you enjoy the rest of your time here at Space Camp,” he added. Students were selected for the scholarship based on an essay, school grades, interest in science and space, and nancial need. The scholarship covers one week at Space Camp, travel, a ight suit, clothing package, a calling card and spending money. “I would like to say thank you to the Air Space and Missile Defense Association for sponsoring 16 young individuals to attend Space Camp. Thank you for believing in our future,” said Lt. Gen. David L. Mann, USASMDC/ARSTRAT commanding general. “I would like to thank the U.S. Space and Rocket Center for giving me this opportunity to speak to you today, and for providing a place for folks, both young and old, to learn about space exploration.” “I’m a Soldier in the U.S. Army,” he added. “You may wonder what does the Army have to do with space and space ight. Well, the Army happens to be the largest user of space in our military. In fact, my organization is involved in many different space-related technologies. Did you know the Army sent the rst U.S. object into See CAMP, page 8

7The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 32 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014 Eight thinking traps you can overcomeBy Ray Drefus USAG-KA Master Resilience Trainer The Anchoring Trap: Over-relying on rst thoughts. Your starting point can heavily bias your thinking. Your initial impressions, ideas and estimates “anchor” subsequent thoughts. The Anchoring Trap Solution: View a problem from a different perspective. Avoid being stuck with a single starting point. Think on your own before consulting others and seek information from a wide variety of sources. Get many opinions and broaden your frame of reference. The Status Quo Trap: Keeping on, keeping on… We tend to repeat established behavior over and over again. The Status Quo Trap Solution: Consider the status quo as just another alternative. Know your objectives and ask whether the status quo serves those objectives. Refuse to default to the way things are because you are having a hard time picking the best alternative. The Sunken Cost Trap: Protecting and/or defending earlier choices at all cost. The Sunken Cost Solution: It is OK to make mistakes. Listen to people who were not involved in the earlier decision and focus on your objectives. Do what is right and move on. The Con rmation Trap: Seeing what you want to see. You may nd yourself looking for information that will most likely support your initial point of view while conveniently avoiding information that challenges it. The Con rmation Trap Solution: Expose yourself to con icting information. Examine all evidence with equal rigor. Find a “devil’s advocate” or build a counterargument yourself and don’t ask leading questions. The Incomplete Information Trap: Initially, not seeking enough information so you hurriedly create assumptions to move forward. Unfortunately, in your hurried state you may be starting with bogus assumptions. The Incomplete Information Trap Solution: Make your assumptions explicit. Check the validity of your assumptions. Always favor hard data over mental simpli cations and/or emotional reasoning. If it is not life or death—slow down. The Conformity Trap: Everybody else is doing it or the “herd instinct.” Other people’s actions may profoundly in uence yours. The Conformity Trap Solution: Don’t be unduly in uenced by others’ opinions. Beware of “Social Proof,” when someone tries to convince you, arguing primarily on the popularity of a choice, instead of on its merit. Be courageous. The Recall Trap: Not all memories are created equal. We analyze information based on experience and on what we can remember from it. We are overly in uenced by events that stand out from others, such as those with highly dramatic impact or very recent ones. The more “special” an event is, the greater the potential it has to distort our thinking. The Recall Trap Solution: Find hard data that con rms or discounts your recollection as soon as possible. Be aware of your emotions. If asking for opinions, nd people who are not overly emotionally involved. Strive to evaluate information on its relevance and accuracy. By Ray Drefus USAG-KA Master Resilience Trainer 1. Avoid caffeine after lunch. Switch to decaf or try chamomile tea, both will help your Zzzs. 2. Downsize those big dinners. Make lunch your main meal, and limit dinner to fewer than 500 calories. Skip spicy foods for less heartburn, indigestion and toovivid dreams. 3. Work out early. Exercising within three to four hours of bedtime can hinder your sleep. 4. Skip the nightcap. Alcohol can pull the bait-and-switch; it makes you initially drowsy and then it makes you restless through the night. 5. Turn off the television, tablets, etc. Glowing screens signals your brain to stay alert. 6. Kick the habit. Nicotine is a stimulant. What, you need another reason to quit? 7. Don’t work in bed. Spreadsheets and work-related tasks equal stress, not quality sleep. The Superiority Trap: The average is above average. Research has shown when drivers were asked to compare their driving skills to other people, almost all the participants, 93 percent, rated themselves as above average. People may have an in ated view of themselves; they overestimate their skills and capabilities, leading to many errors in judgment. The Superiority Trap Solution: Be humble; everyone has a “blind or weak spots.” Surround yourself with honest people. Nothing is better than having honest people around to point them out so we do not get blindsided. Strive for excellence in all you do. How to get better sleep

11The Kwajalein Hourglass Volume 55 Number 32 The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, Aug. 9, 2014 Kwajalein Reclaimed Water Standard ViolationThe Reclaimed Water Document of Environmental Protection requires public noti cation when reclaimed water standards are violated. The reclaimed water system has shown higher than normal turbidity levels resulting from a system upset at the Kwajalein wastewater treatment plant. Turbidity is the cloudiness or haziness of a liquid caused by individual particles that are generally invisible to the naked eye. The seven day rolling turbidity average at the reclaimed water system point of entry as well as the entry to the distribution system has exceeded the permitted maximum of 2.0 NTUs. The issue at the wastewater plant has not yet been resolved. Both Liquid Systems and Environmental personnel are actively investigating the problem and working hard to bring the plant back to normal function. There is currently no threat to public health or the environment as a result of this turbidity exceedance. If you have any questions, call 51134.

Explore your world and ask questions,” Mann said. “The world is a complex and wonderful place. Let your curiosities guide you and drive you to understand about your world and worlds beyond this one. You owe it to yourself to seek answers, possibly to questions we don’t even know to ask yet. “Astronauts do things that have never been done, with technology that has never been used before, and in order to accomplish these feats we need smart young men and women who are curious about our world and worlds beyond,” he added. “You all have it in you to be astronauts, mathematicians, politicians, or whatever you want to be in life, but you have to work hard and always remain curious.” After the luncheon, some of the campers spoke about what they had learned and how excited they were to be at Space Camp. “Space Camp has been awesome,” said 11-year-old Tripp Foster from Fayetteville, Tenn. “I ended up being the shuttle commander. It is hard though, I accidentally left my mission specialist in space. I couldn’t go back to get him so we just left him oating in space. “Even though it is hard sometimes, it is really a great experience,” he added. “This is great and I am really glad to be here.” The luncheon was held as part of the children’s overall week at Space Camp. During the week, the children participated in activities, including rocket construction and launch, water activities, a simulated Space Shuttle mission, Mars mission simulators, Manned Maneuvering Unit, Multi-Axis Trainer, and enjoyed an IMAX movie. “Space Camp has been really fun,” said 11-year-old camper Emmalee Jones from Colorado Springs, Colo. “I was the shuttle pilot and we got to push a lot of buttons. “I would de nitely recommend others coming to space camp,” she added. “This has honestly been a really great experience. It is a once-ina-lifetime opportunity and I am glad I got to come.”CAMP, from page 4 Sunrise Moonrise Low Tide High Tide Sunset Moonset Sunday 6:41 a.m. 6:30 p.m. 10:06 a.m. -0.9’ 3:41 a.m. 4.9’ 7:08 p.m. 5:41 a.m. 10:05 p.m. -0.8’ 4:08 p.m. 4.1’ Monday 6:41 a.m. 7:26 p.m. 10:45 a.m. -1.1’ 4:23 a.m. 5.2’ 7:07 p.m. 6:42 a.m. 10:48 p.m. -0.9’ 4:49 p.m. 4.4’ Tuesday 6:41 a.m. 8:19 p.m. 11:23 a.m. -1.2’ 5:03 a.m. 5.2’ 7:07 p.m. 7:43 a.m. 11:29 p.m. -0.9’ 5:28 p.m. 4.5’ Wednesday 6:41 a.m. 9:10 p.m. 12:00 p.m. -1.0’ 5:42a.m. 5.1’ 7:07 p.m. 8:42 a.m. ---------------------6:06 p.m. 4.5’ Thursday 6:41 a.m. 9:00 p.m. 12:09 a.m. -0.7’ 6:21 a.m. 4.7’ 7:06 p.m. 9:39 a.m. 12:36 p.m. -0.7’ 6:45 p.m. 4.3’ Friday 6:41 a.m. 10:50 p.m. 12:50 a.m. -0.4’ 6:58 a.m. 4.2’ 7:06 p.m. 10:34 a.m. 1:11 p.m. -0.4’ 7:25 p.m. 4.0’ Aug. 9 6:41 a.m. 11:39 p.m. 1:33 a.m. 0.1’ 7:37 a.m. 3.6’ 7:05 p.m. 11:28 a.m. 1:48 p.m. 0.1’ 8:09 p.m. 3.6’
