M41 Walker Bulldog

1 × cal .30-Turm-MG
Der M41 Walker Bulldog war ein leichter Panzer aus US-amerikanischer Produktion. Er stand unter anderem während der Zeit des Kalten Krieges von 1952 bis 1965 im Dienst der US Army und ist darüber hinaus noch heute in einigen anderen Armeen im Einsatz. Der Eigenname des Panzers geht auf den US-amerikanischen General Walton „Bulldog“ Walker zurück, der im Koreakrieg bei einem Autounfall gestorben war.

Der M41 stellte den Nachfolger des M24 Chaffee dar, der sich zwar als gut bewaffnet

, aber zu schwach gepanzert erwiesen hatte. Die ersten Prototypen des Designs wurden ab 1947 entwickelt. 1951 begann die Produktion im Cadillac-Panzerwerk in Cleveland, Ohio. Bereits 1953 hatte er im aktiven Dienst der US Army seinen Vorgänger komplett ersetzt.
Die Ansichten in der amerikanischen Panzertruppe zum M41 waren geteilt. Einerseits verfügte er über eine gute Kombination aus Bewaffnung, Geschwindigkeit und Panzerung und war leicht zu bedienen

, andererseits waren seine Motorenanlage und seine Ketten bei hoher Leistung sehr laut. Darüber hinaus verbrauchte der benzingetriebene Motor viel Treibstoff. Ebenso konnte der Turm im Seitenrichtbereich nur von Hand gedreht werden.
Die Produktion des M41 endete bei 5500 Einheiten. 1965 wurden die im Dienst der US Army befindlichen Panzer dieses Typs an Südvietnam weiterverkauft. Der M41 ging auch an Brasilien

, Chile, Dänemark, Thailand und Taiwan. Die Bundeswehr verwendete den M41 von 1956 bis 1969 als Jagdpanzer und Spähpanzer. In Taiwan wurde der M41 unter der Bezeichnung M41D umfassend modernisiert und steht dort noch als Spähpanzer im Dienst. Ebenfalls haben die chilenischen Streitkräfte auf der Militärparade 2009 das Fahrzeug noch vorgeführt.
Der erste Kriegseinsatz des M41 erfolgte im April 1961 in kleiner Stückzahl bei der Invasion in der Schweinebucht auf Kuba. Der von der CIA unterstützte Angriff von Exilkubanern gegen die Revolutionsregierung von Fidel Castro scheiterte jedoch. Die meisten Fahrzeuge wurden von kubanischen Regierungstruppen erbeutet. Ein Exemplar wurde unmittelbar danach zur Evaluierung an die Sowjetarmee abgegeben; ein weiteres Fahrzeug ist auf Kuba als Denkmal bis heute erhalten.
Während des Vietnamkriegs stand der Walker Bulldog bei der südvietnamesischen Armee mehrfach im Kampfeinsatz. Zwar war er wie sein Vorgänger insgesamt zu leicht für Angriffsaufgaben, konnte jedoch bei Aufklärungs- und Sicherungseinsätzen gegen nordvietnamesische Fahrzeuge bis zur Größe eines T-55 Erfolge erzielen.
Vom M41 existierten zahlreiche Modifikationen, unter anderem der taiwanesische Spähpanzer M41D.
Auf dem M41 basierten der Flakpanzer M42 Duster und das Panzerartilleriefahrzeug M52 mit einer 105-mm-Haubitze. Weiterhin wurde der M75 Mannschaftstransportwagen auf Basis des M41 entwickelt.

House of Hanover

United Kingdom: 1901 – Death of Queen Victoria ends the British branch in the agnatic line; semi-Salic law ends personal union of Hanover with the United Kingdom in 1837, upon death of her uncle William IV.
Hanover: 1866 – George V of Hanover lost the territory to Prussia in the Austro-Prussian War
The House of Hanover (or the Hanoverians /ˌhænəˈvɪəriənz, -noʊ-, -ˈvɛr-/; German: Haus Hannover) is a German royal dynasty which has ruled the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg (German: Braunschweig-Lüneburg), the Kingdom of Hanover, the Kingdom of Great Britain, the Kingdom of Ireland and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. It succeeded the House of Stuart as monarchs of Great Britain and Ireland in 1714 and held that office until the death of Queen Victoria in 1901. They are sometimes referred to as the House of Brunswick and Lüneburg, Hanover line

The House of Hanover is the only surviving branch of the House of Welf, which is the senior branch of the House of Este.
Queen Victoria was the granddaughter of George III and was an ancestor of most major European royal houses. She arranged marriages for her children and grandchildren across the continent, tying Europe together; this earned her the nickname “the grandmother of Europe”. She was the last British monarch of the House of Hanover; her son King Edward VII belonged to the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha, the line of his father, Albert, Prince Consort. Under semi-Salic law, Victoria could not inherit the Kingdom of Hanover and the Duchies unless the entire male line became extinct; those possessions passed to the next eligible male heir, her uncle Ernest Augustus I of Hanover, the Duke of Cumberland and Teviotdale—the fifth son of George III.
The current head of the House of Hanover is Ernst August, Prince of Hanover.

George, Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg, is considered the first member of the House of Hanover.[citation needed] When the Duchy of Brunswick-Lüneburg was divided in 1635, George inherited the Principality of Calenberg and moved his residence to Hanover. His son, Christian Louis inherited the Principality of Lüneburg from George’s brother. Calenberg and Lüneburg were then shared between George’s sons until united in 1705 under his grandson, also called George, who subsequently became George I of Great Britain. All held the title Duke of Brunswick-Lüneburg. George died in 1641 and was succeeded by:
George Louis became the first British monarch of the House of Hanover as George I in 1714.:13 The dynasty provided six British monarchs:
Of the Kingdoms of Great Britain and Ireland:
Of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland:
George I, George II, and George III also served as electors and dukes of Brunswick-Lüneburg, informally, Electors of Hanover (cf. personal union). From 1814, when Hanover became a kingdom, the British monarch was also King of Hanover.

In 1837, however, the personal union of the thrones of the United Kingdom and Hanover ended. Succession to the Hanoverian throne was regulated by semi-Salic law (agnatic-cognatic), which gave priority to all male lines before female lines

, the House of Hanover would have acceded to the Duchy of Brunswick, but there had been strong Prussian pressure against having George V of Hanover or his son, the Duke of Cumberland, succeed to a member state of the German Empire, at least without strong conditions, including swearing to the German constitution. By a law of 1879, the Duchy of Brunswick established a temporary council of regency to take over at the Duke’s death, and if necessary appoint a regent.
The Duke of Cumberland proclaimed himself Duke of Brunswick at the Duke’s death, and lengthy negotiations ensued, but were never resolved. Prince Albert of Prussia was appointed regent; after his death in 1906, Duke John Albert of Mecklenburg succeeded him. The Duke of Cumberland’s eldest son died in a car accident in 1912; the father renounced Brunswick in favor of his youngest son Ernest Augustus, who married the Kaiser’s daughter, swore allegiance to the German Empire, and was allowed to ascend the throne of the Duchy in November 1913. He was a major-general during the First World War; but he was overthrown as Duke of Brunswick in 1918. His father was also deprived of his British titles in 1919, for “bearing arms against Great Britain”.

USS Frament (APD-77)

USS Frament (DE-677/APD-77) was a Buckley-class destroyer escort in the United States Navy. She was named for Pharmacist’s Mate Third Class Paul S. Frament (1919–1942), who was posthumously awarded the Silver Star for heroism in the Guadalcanal campaign.
Frament was launched on 28 June 1943 by Bethlehem Steel Company’s Fore River Shipyard, Quincy, Massachusetts; sponsored by Mrs. Edward A

, Jr., in command.

Frament began the demanding tasks of Atlantic convoy escort on 19 October 1943, when she sailed from New York to escort tankers to Curaçao and thence to Derry, Northern Ireland. Sailing out of New York, and occasionally Boston, she escorted six convoys to Northern Ireland, one to Cherbourg, France, and one to Gibraltar, in the period from 15 December 1943 to 3 December 1944.
At 02:23 hrs on 15 November 1944, at 36°11′N 19°45′W / 36.183°N 19.750°W / 36.183; -19.750 (in the North Atlantic about 700 nmi (1,300 km) west of Gibraltar), Frament mistakenly rammed and sank the Italian submarine Luigi Settembrini which Frament was escorting to Bermuda

, where the Italians were to provide aid in anti-submarine warfare training. Of the 42-strong crew of the Settembrini, only 14 survivors were rescued by Frament. USS Scott (DE-214) was detached from a convoy bound for the Mediterranean to help search for Italian survivors, and then escorted Frament back to Boston, arriving on 3 December.
After a hasty decommissioning, Frament began conversion to a high-speed transport; she was reclassified APD-77 on 15 December 1944.
After training on both coasts, Frament arrived at Pearl Harbor on 3 April 1945 for duty training with underwater demolition teams in the Hawaiian Islands. Convoy escort duty took her to Eniwetok

Returning to the Philippines at the close of July, Frament trained for the planned invasion of the Japanese home islands, and at the close of the war, took up duty with minesweepers operating in the Yellow Sea. She served on occupation duty until 1 January 1946, when she sailed from Shanghai for the east coast. On 30 May 1946 Frament was placed out of commission in reserve at Green Cove Springs, Florida.
Stricken from the Navy Register on 1 June 1960, the former Frament was transferred to Ecuador in July 1961 for use as a power hulk.
Frament received one battle star for World War II service.

List of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks

Legionellosis is a potentially fatal infectious disease caused by gram negative, aerobic bacteria belonging to the genus Legionella. The first reported outbreak was in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in 1976 during a Legionnaires Convention at the Bellevue-Stratford Hotel.

The guidance issued by the UK government’s Health and Safety Executive (HSE) now recommends that microbiological monitoring for wet cooling systems, using a dipslide, should be performed weekly. The guidance now also recommends that routine testing for legionella bacteria in wet cooling systems be carried out at least quarterly, and more frequently when a system is being commissioned, or if the bacteria have been identified on a previous occasion. Further non-statutory UK guidance from the Water Regulations Advisory Scheme now exists for pre-heating of water in applications such as solar water heating systems.
The City of Garland, Texas requires yearly testing for legionella bacteria at cooling towers at apartment buildings.
Malta requires twice yearly testing for Legionella bacteria at cooling towers and water fountains. Malta prohibits the installation of new cooling towers and evaporative condensers at health care facilities and schools.
The Texas Department of State Health Services has provided guidelines for hospitals to detect and prevent the spread of nosocomial infection due to legionella

. The European Working Group for Legionella Infections (EWGLI) was established in 1986 within the European Union framework to share knowledge and experience about potential sources of Legionella and their control. This group has published guidelines about the actions to be taken to limit the number of colony forming units (i.e., the “aerobic count”) of micro-organisms per mL at 30 °C (minimum 48 hours incubation):
Almost all natural water sources contain Legionella and their presence should not be taken as an indication of a problem. The tabled figures are for total aerobic plate count, cfu/ml at 30 °C (minimum 48 hours incubation) with colony count determined by the pour plate method according to ISO 6222(21) or spread plate method on yeast extract agar. Legionella isolation can be conducted using the method developed by the US Center for Disease Control using buffered charcoal yeast extract agar with antibiotics.
Many other governmental agencies, cooling tower manufacturers, and industrial trade organizations have developed design and maintenance guidelines for preventing or controlling the growth of Legionella in cooling towers. However, in the US, there are no regulations requiring testing or maintaining any specified levels in these facilities.
The bacteria grow best in warm water

. Indoor ornamental fountains have been confirmed as a cause of Legionnaires’ disease outbreaks, in which submerged lighting as a heat source was attributed to the outbreak in all documented cases.[citation needed] Controlling the growth of Legionella in ornamental fountains is touched on in many of the listed guidelines. However, specific guidelines for solar water heating systems
Adding an antibacterial agent to the automobiles’ windshield system’s reservoir is also recommended Legionellae have been discovered in up to 40% of freshwater environments and have been in up to 80% of freshwater sites by PCR hybridization assay.
Legionella bacteria themselves can be inactivated by UV light. However, Legionella bacteria that grow and reproduce in amoebae or that are sheltered in corrosion particles cannot be killed by UV light alone.
Legionella will grow in water at temperatures from 20 to 50 °C (68 to 122 °F). However, the bacteria reproduce at the greatest rate in stagnant water at temperatures of 35 to 46 °C (95 to 115 °F).
Copper-Silver ionization is an effective industrial control and prevention process to eradicate Legionella in potable water distribution systems and cooling towers found in health facilities, hotels, nursing homes and most large buildings. In 2003, ionization became the first such hospital disinfection process to have fulfilled a proposed four-step modality evaluation; by then it had been adopted by over 100 hospitals. Additional studies indicate ionization is superior to thermal eradication.
A 2011 study by Lin, Stout and Yu found Copper-Silver ionization to be the only Legionella control technology which has been validated through a 4-step scientific approach.
A recent research study provided evidence that Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of Legionnaires’ disease, can travel airborne at least 6 km from its source. In 2000, ASHRAE issued guidelines to maintain water systems and to decrease the chances of Legionnaires’ disease transmission. The guidelines were not valued because legionella multiply in such temperatures. On the other hand, a lot of states had regulations that limited temperatures in health care facilities in order to reduce scalding injuries.
It was previously believed that transmission of the bacterium was restricted to much shorter distances. A team of French scientists reviewed the details of an epidemic of Legionnaires’ disease that took place in Pas-de-Calais in northern France in 2003–2004. There were 86 confirmed cases during the outbreak, of whom 18 died. The source of infection was identified as a cooling tower in a petrochemical plant, and an analysis of those affected in the outbreak revealed that some infected people lived as far as 6–7 km from the plant.
A study of Legionnaires’ disease cases in May 2005 in Sarpsborg, Norway concluded that: “The high velocity, large drift, and high humidity in the air scrubber may have contributed to the wide spread of Legionella species, probably for >10 km. “…
In 2010 a study by the UK Health Protection Agency reported that 20% of cases may be caused by infected windscreen washer systems filled with pure water. The finding came after researchers spotted that professional drivers are five times more likely to contract the disease. No cases of infected systems were found whenever a suitable washer fluid was used.
Temperature affects the survival of Legionella as follows:
Removing slime, which can carry legionellae when airborne, may be an effective control process.
