The Rolling Airframe Missiles, together with the Mk 49 Guided Missile Launching System (GMLS) and support equipment, make up the RAM Mk 31 Guided Missile Weapon System (GMWS). The Mk-144 Guided Missile Launcher (GML) unit weighs 5,777 kilograms (12,736 lb) and stores 21 missiles. The original weapon cannot employ its own sensors prior to firing so it must be integrated with a ship's combat system, which directs the launcher at targets. On U.S. ships it is integrated with the AN/SWY-2 Ship Defense Surface Missile System (SDSMS) and Ship Self-Defense System (SSDS) Mk 1 or Mk 2 based combat systems. SeaRAM, a launcher variant equipped with independent sensors derived from the Vulcan PhalanxCIWS, is being installed on Littoral Combat Ships and certain Arleigh Burke-class destroyers.
Modified genes can distort wild cotton’s interactions with insects “It’s the first case that really suggests a whole ecosystem can be disrupted” after transgenes enter a wild population, says Norman Ellstrand, an evolutionary biologist at UC Riverside
My name is Boe Huntress, I have been a facilitator of groups for over ten years. I hold spaces of transformation and depth, supporting others to engage healthily with their emotions and with their soul life. I have personally been on a journey with my own screen addictions and feel in a place where I can support others to do the same.
A metaphor: If the leader of the Rapists Party came up with a Platform Against Rape that didn’t stop the raping but that rebranded the very act by saying that if one uses a pink dildo made of recycled plastic to penetrate, then it’s not rape… would you think it’s a platform against rape in earnest?
