Researchers are developing improved tactics, techniques, and procedures to prevent or mitigate traumatic injuries.
Army News Service ABERDEEN PROVING GROUND, Md. -- Joint Trauma Analysis and Prevention of Injury in Combat program -- the name itself implies vast scale. Formed in July 2006, the program is a partnership among Defense Department intelligence, operational, medical, and materiel-development communities that collect, integrate and analyze injury and operational data from theater. The goal is to improve DOD's understanding of vulnerabilities to threats and enable the development of improved tactics, techniques, and procedures, known as TTPs, and materiel solutions to prevent or mitigate traumatic injuries.

CERN lab in Switzerland, where the Web was born, finds signs of a new subatomic particle.
The Geneva lab where the Web was born has produced another revelation—signs of the so-called “God Particle.” Scientists at CERN loudly applauded the news. “We have reached a milestone in our understanding of nature,” said lab director general Rolf Heuer. “The discovery of a particle consistent with the Higgs boson opens the way to more detailed studies, requiring larger statistics, which will pin down the new particle’s properties, and is likely to shed light on other mysteries of our universe.” It took a while for the Web to take hold. Will the God Particle change the way we live as well? Subscribe to the Fort Stewart Patch newsletter and get news, Patch deals and breaking news alerts delivered straight to your inbox. Follow Fort …

It happened in 2004 and is scheduled again for June 5 and 6, 2012. Although the entire eclipse will be visible from certain countries, in the US it will only be visible as it begins on June 5. The sun will set before the event ends. According to www.transitofvenus.org, when this transit happens, Venus will be seen as a small dot gliding slowly across the face of the sun. Since this is a twice in a lifetime event, …
