Minneapolis-based newgrass band Jackson and the Roosters just completed their concert series and are grateful to the QOL committee for facilitating the addition of violinist Ann Letsinger to the band 9 months ago. In their three days on Kwaj and Roi, the band snorkeled, raised the bar for local bands, and intro duced the island to the sweet sounds of newgrass music. Weve seen the pictures and read the books [about Kwajalein] and were like absolutely!

With roots in different varieties of Amer something in newgrass to enjoy. Tradi tional vocals, technical virtuosity on gui tar and a diverse array of acoustic instru ments are also trademarks of newgrass. by musical luminaries: The band is in spired by Bob Dylan, Regina Carter and The Wailers. But not everyone can listen and adapt a melody or a motif into some Jackson and the Roosters get blend their blues, folk, classic rock, and sea chantand have fun bringing it to new places and people. Like all good things, newgrass is best when it is shared with friends. Getting their music to us was the bands ulti mate goal. On Kwajalein, audiences at two concerts were inspired to break into spontaneous dance: something in the music sparked them to action. We wanted to go to a place wed nev er been before and that most of us had never heard of before, and we wanted to with people who have most likely never The band started as a series of friend ships and connections. It was one of those spur of the mo ment things where we learned that both of us were musicians, and we began to gren and Johnson are graduates of the University of Minnesota Duluth. The band met Letsinger through a family after their former cello player departed to start a family. A deep noise thrums in the back ground. Johnson and Chalgren look toward the says Chalgren. It weighed too much. For him, drummer Sam Berseres adjusts the snare as rain begins to fall. The bandmates are multitalented: they play ukulele, banjo, violin, drums, guitar, and harmonica and dont shy away from acapella when the occasion self. Perhaps this accounts for why the band plays acoustically-driven tunes in a market dominated by electronica. For me the answer is, I grew up in a house that loved music. Music was al says Chalgren. He grew up listening to classic rock, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and people who were strong song writers.

I discovered them and they had a way to capture a lot of live raw energy at their shows with just acoustic COMPOSING AMERICANA It is that tenacious drive to embrace multiple genres while staying true to its energy. I think thats what helped us play a number of genresthings that date back to old folk music to Johnny Cash to the Beetles, to Sam Cook, to Aretha Franklin, the Temptations, Bob A lot of the songs were written before I joined the band, so I have to listen and different genres as a member of a new grass band has helped her leverage her academic musical training in ways she couldnt have imagined. Its really opened up my creative rock band. I was classically trained in the Suzu ki method. Its changing, with strings. I didnt know this was a possibility. When I have time I like to learn things by Re Its tough to put yourself into one canaor new grass, the new blue grass years there is this new wave of styles Johnson adds that after acquiring a drummer, the quality of the sound the band had searched for was set. After Sam joined, I would say that we have totally turned it up into Rooster Rock. We like to say our sound is infec tious. We play shows for all ages, [from] the typical bar scene to people in college, to our parents ages. Were able to attract a wide swath of people. Were really able to capture a wide spectrum of genres, and I think that at our shows, no matter what music you like, well be able to cap

A closely related family, Cydnidae, burrowing bugs. Represented by Geotomus pygmaeus, a little black. The leaf bug family, Miridae, is represented by: Campylemma hericornis, pale yellow with dark spots, about 2.3 mm. long; Hallieus tibalis, black and a little smaller, on bean, pumpkin, and sweet potato plants; and Trigonostylus dohertyi, straw color to greenish-yellow. All of these suck sap from plants. In contrast there are some families of Heterop blood from man.

The male has the upper surface of the wings purplish with a few small white spots, and the lower surface brownish. The female has a brown and white pattern with patches of orange-yellow on each wing, and the upper surface of the front pair a white area divided into four parts by dark veins, also other white spots. Most of the moths are small, although a few are rather heavy set. One of the most distinctive, a ti ger moth (Arctilldae) called Utethsia pulchelloi des, has a pattern of very small red and black dots on its white wings. Its caterpillars frequently are found on tree heliotrope (Meserschmida). Another moth has light green wings edged by a narrow dark border; the body scales are pale silvery green.

It is a noctuid, having slaty-gray wings with brown markings, about an inch and a quarter across the two when spread. Its caterpillar feeds on nut grass sedge, and reaches a length of more than an inch before burrowing into soft earth to pupate. There are several smaller moths, most of which would be hard to identify. Beetles (coleopteran) make up the largest order of insects. In some regions they outnumber all the other orders combined.

8 EYES IN THE DARK: NAVY DIVE HELMET DISPLAY EMERGES AS A GAME-CHANGER PANAMA CITY, Fla. The once-ribbing term four-eyes now secures a coolness factor, thanks to a team of Navy engineers who have developed a high-resolution, see-through, heads-up display embedded directly inside a KM-37 Navy dive helmet to effective underwater. Project Manager Dennis Gallagher, an engi neer with the underwater systems develop ment and acquisitions branch special optics lab, said he and his team have developed a type that might even evoke the envy of Iron man. Meet DAVD, also known as the Divers Aug mented Vision Display. Years in the making, a plastic waveguide houses binocular-style play smaller than a postage stamp and ready to receive a variety of critical topside data that assists divers working in even the most austere and low-visibility underwater condi tions. Once a mere concept based on a need, DAVD has matured into an operational and testable prototype that Gallagher said is so far earning rave reviews from the Navy, joint and allied forces dive communities. Unlike recreational diving, where youre in the Bahamas [and] its crystal clear and its beautiful, military diving is almost [always] dark, pitch-black water. Youre working in diving in salvage, ship husbandry -very dan said. So you cant see life-support informa tion, critical sensor data that you need. Your gauges are almost useless down there, be cause you cannot see them in front of your The technology, Gallagher said, is a culmi nation of display capabilities, much of which the Air Force has used for years to send and receive information. An Augmented Reality What we can send on that heads-up dis play is literally anything the topside dive su of the point-of-view, video game-style device. It can be sonar or sector scan thats a top view of what the salvage area looks like. We can even send a 3-D augmented reality over The diver, he added, can see the wreck, the object of interest, even him or herself navi gating to the target area. The system works through voice commands, which can carry a pictures, and video placed anywhere on the screen. He or she can also turn the entire system off and return to see-through mode if necessary. Gallagher noted that DAVD even has favor able outreach beyond the military, including including law enforcement. [The police divers] had people who lost their lives -they couldnt see their gas pres sure, because [the visibility] was so bad when lagher said. So this kind of thing has tremen How Its Made How the DAVD is made seems to have just as storied a journey as what it can al ready help divers achieve. Gallagher said he knew the lab would need to bring forth the possible, which prompted concept develop ment through 3-D models. We can take our mechanical engineering models, and electri cal engineering models, and literally email it across the base to the 3-D printing shop -they make the versions of them there -then and start testing it at lightning speed for very Chuck Self, head of the Navy Surface War fare Center Panama City rapid prototyping shop, said making something from nothing is all in days work, as he and his team are the initial articles. Selfs work puts 3-D printed models in hands of engineers, enabling them to quickly make revisions, and get a product to market much faster. Additionally, the prototyping shop partners with all other warfare centers in a 3-D printing, or additive manufacturing, This working groups main goal is to help implement additive manufacturing to the workforce development are all major factors for the Navy to approve additive manufactur ing as an acceptable process. The goal is to approve a process so that it doesnt have to be a case-by-case situation and we can certify Additive manufacturing uses state-of-theart technology to instruct computer-con trolled machines to print parts in a layered format, Self said. We have nothing to start with, and we add material layer by layer until The technology is not as new as much of By Amaani Lyle Dod News Defense Media Activity A light illuminates a prototype dive helmet with the Diver Augmented Vi sion Display at the Naval Surface Warfare Center Panama City Division at the Naval Support Activity Panama City in Panama City, Fla.

Im lucky enough to have been here at the Navy Surface Warfare Center to see some of the best and newest diving technology come through and have the opportunity to be part of some of the testing and development for also a military diver and DAVD prototype priority was to recover a piece of history from the Civil War vessel CSS Georgia.

I was able to see anything more than that was nothing but a wouldve helped to decrease the amount of Today, DAVD testing will continue with ongoing enhancements, capabilities and in teroperability, progress made possible by the creative freedom the Navy allows, Galla gher said. But he also stressed that creative freedom isnt his only motivation in going one of his earliest diver display systems to a group of service members, newly returned from Iraq and Afghanistan. He remembered how eager they were to use the technology. Putting it all into perspective, he went back I realized that I complained that the cof fee was cold at the mess and these guys have been out doing these kinds of things, trying That changed my entire outlook whatever I do could literally make a difference in that person in theater getting back, because the like that.

10 WEEKLY WEATHER OUTLOOK WEATHER TRENDS : The Intertropical Convergence Zone (ITCZ) has become well established through the northern RMI running eastward pass Small embedded circulations are present within the ITCZ transiting west ward. One such circulation is currently moving across the area causing our local winds to become northerly and supporting local rain activity. Thunder storms were prominent early Thursday morning within our lightning detec atoll. This circulation will support a larger area of rain activity, with chance of thunderstorms, into Friday morning. The threat of Tropical cyclone development will remain west of Kwajalein in the Monsoon trough. There is currently a strengthening tropical depression just east of the Philippines and our indicators are trying to initiate a new de pression somewhere in Western Micronesia in a few days. Locally there is lit tle threat of tropical storms due to the lack of support high in the atmosphere. OUTLOOK: be changing routinely due to the embedded waves traveling through the ITCZ. Some indicators are showing a break between these waves during the week more consistent easterly winds.
