Russian sub Rostov-on-Don undergoes maintenance

December 28, 2015 Russian Navy’s new diesel-electric submarine Rostov-on-Don completed her sail from Novorossiysk to Sevastopol – both Black Sea ports, on December 25. In Sevastopol, the submarine will undergo inspection and routine maintenance of mechanisms of the submarine after it made the transition from the North to the Black Sea Fleet, and after it completed objectives in the Mediterranean.Earlier this month, on December 8, the Rostov-on-Don achieved a first-of-a-kind milestone for the Russian Navy. Namely, according to the Russian Defence Minister Sergei Shoigu, the submarine fired Kalibr cruise missiles while submerged in the Mediterranean Sea.The cruise missiles fired from the submarine reportedly also hit their targets, ISIS positions in the Syrian Raqqa province.The Russian Navy said that after the scheduled maintenance is completed, the crew would begin a planned combat training.[mappress mapid=”17559″]Naval Today Staff View post tag: Russian Navy Share this article View post tag: Rostov-on-Don View post tag: Black Sea Fleet Russian sub Rostov-on-Don undergoes maintenance Back to overview,Home naval-today Russian sub Rostov-on-Don undergoes maintenance Authorities read more

Little things matter

first_img continue reading » I’m a huge fan of auto-paying my bills.First, I want to protect my credit report.Second, I’m lazy. If I can automate a task, that’s a win.Here’s a great story about one of my utilities.I signed up to pay them automatically each month from my checking account.  But there was a rub.Each month, they would send me an email saying a payment was due. But I never could remember if I was on autopayment, so I’d have to dig into the account to confirm. That almost defeated the purpose.

Princess crowned at Galway

first_img Once in the clear, Princess Aloof made up the ground fairly rapidly and extended clear in the straight. Shalamzar just got up to deny Champagne Or Water to the runner-up spot, beaten two lengths by the Harrington runner. “She is a great filly and has only run one bad race,” said the Moone-based trainer. “She’s not very big but she loves it around here. S he’s run well here before (third twice). “We brought her back to the mile and a bit here and we knew she’d love that. “Shane (Foley) was mad to ride her and he said as soon as he pulled her out going down the hill and she met the rising ground, that he knew it would take a fair horse to get past her. “I expect the handicapper might catch up with her but we’ll aim for a fillies’ handicap next.” Harrington completed a double on the afternoon as Sandymount Duke registered his fourth victory on the spin in the Guinness Novice Hurdle. Press Association Princess Aloof was a comprehensive winner of the Hop House 13 Handicap at Galway. Jessica Harrington’s filly was a 6-1 shot to claim her third victory of the campaign and her first since back-to-back successes at Leopardstown in April. Shane Foley rode a patient race, settling his mount in the midfield before angling wider to challenge before the home turn. The 4-1 shot looked to have plenty on his plate conceding weight all round, but added to his triumphs at Punchestown, Kilbeggan and Tipperary with a battling display under Robbie Power. Credo Star was a length and three-quarters away in second, with the Mullins-trained odds-on favourite Gangster disappointing. The winner carries the colours of Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood. Harrington said: “He was crying out for a lead and took off when the others came to him and won easily in the end. “I nearly gave up on him after his first two runs when he was beaten by an aggregate of 137 lengths but he won next time out at Listowel and turned a corner. His jumping is great. “Ronnie Wood was in America on tour for his last three wins and is in England today, but will be delighted with the win.” last_img read more
