Este lunes, el Sol a desaparecido –por un corto periodo de tiempo– en todo Estados Unidos, de costa a costa. Por un breve momento, el día se converto en noche.

Diez marineros están perdidos después de que el USS John S McCain chocó con un petrolero durante una visita rutinaria al puerto de Singapur, la US Navy ha dicho #us#destroyer#Singapore#Navy#USNavy#USSJohnSMcCain #
US Chief of Naval Operations Admiral John Richardson ordered “an operational pause” and a “comprehensive review” following a series of collisions involving US Navy (USN) ships. “This trend demands more forceful action. As such, I’ve directed an operational pause be taken in all of our fleets around the world,” Adm Richardson said in a video statement.
There has been a string of serious accidents in the Pacific theatre. Most recently, the USS John S McCain (DDG 56) Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer on 21 August collided with a 183 m Liberian-registered oil and chemical tanker near Singapore. Five USN sailors were injured and 10 were reported missing.

Thoughts are with those missing Sailors.
Repost from @naval_news - Ten US Navy sailors are missing after a US Navy guided-missile destroyer collided with an oil tanker east of Singapore early Monday, the fourth accident in Asian waters involving a US warship in 2017.
The Navy's 7th Fleet said the USS John S. McCain collided with the merchant vessel Alnic MC while the destroyer was making its way to a port visit in Singapore. The collision was reported at 5:24 am local time, as the ship passed near to the entrance of the Malacca Strait, one of the world's most congested shipping routes.
No fuel or oil was seen on the water near the ship, which is now steaming under its own power to Changi Naval Base in Singapore, the Navy said.
Military experts said the latest incident, which comes after seven US sailors aboard the USS Fitzgerald died in a collision off the coast of Japan in June, calls into question the Navy's training and will likely lead to a serious shake-up among the Navy's leadership.
The McCain is equipped with the Aegis missile defense system, which has been touted as a possible counter to any North Korean missile launch. If it is out of action after Monday's collision, it would beat least the second of 10 Aegis warships based in Japan to be unavailable for deployment.
Two other Aegis warships have been involved in incidents in the western Pacific this year -- one ran aground, while the other collided with a fishing boat.
The Malacca Strait, which runs between Indonesia, Malaysia and Singpore, is the world's second busiest waterway according to the World Economic Forum. The collision took place in waters to the east of Singapore.
Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Porter (DDG 78) received fuel and supplies during a replenishment-at-sea, Aug. 19, from Turkish replenishment oiler TCG YB. Kudret Güngör (A 595) in the Black Sea. "It's important to continue to work with our allies in the Black Sea and develop these evolutions of mutual support for each other," said Cmdr. John Tobin, commanding officer of Porter. "If we practice a replenishment-at-sea whenever we're able to, we only strengthen our interoperability for future operations." "Porter and TCG YB. Kudret Güngör's replenishment in the Black Sea demonstrates the professionalism and the competency of both crews and the navies they represent," said Capt. Tate Westbrook, commander, Task Force 65. "This is an advanced maritime operation that not every navy in the world can undertake. The importance of this interoperability with a NATO ally cannot be overstated, as it allows us to conduct sustained operations and enhance the regional security in a critical area of the world." The RAS also enabled Porter to continue conducting naval operations in the U.S. 6th Fleet area of operations without pulling into port for logistical needs.
Porter received approximately 54,000 gallons of fuel, all of which was brought on without incident.
Berada diposisi seperti ini dari setiap sudut pandang orang adalah kesalahan. Bagaimanapun hasilnya, masih akan tetap sama, sebuah kesalahan. Dan kesalahan itu benar adanya.
Lord Shiva reflects the supreme truth that dwells beyond both relative truth and relative falsehood. He is the Supreme Being beyond both relative being and non-being. He is the supreme good beyond both relative good and evil. He embraces our world on both sides, above, below, and in the center and yet stands infinitely beyond it. He is One, yet he is all. He is everything and nothing, both within all things, outside of all things, and not limited by anything.
As a non-dual God, Shiva seems contrary to our prevailing views of what is logical, right or appropriate. Shiva is portrayed as a dispassionate yogi yet he has the most powerful passions and the most beautiful and powerful wife. He both destroys Kamadeva, the ordinary God of love but then becomes the Supreme God of Love himself, Kameshvara. He takes us beyond suffering, but to do this he can cause us excruciating pain.
Shiva awakens a higher awareness in us, but for this to occur he must first take us beyond all our preconceptions, making us see the darkness of ignorance behind our lives. Shiva represents our higher Self that is the goal of our aspirations, but to reach it we must allow our ego, its attachments and opinions to be dissolved, giving up our ordinary sense of self altogether.
Shiva in his diverse names, forms, and actions is meant to be challenging for us to grasp. To contact the reality of Shiva we must face all doubts and difficulties within ourselves and learn how to move beyond them with steadiness and grace. We must recognize the limitations of the mind and its particularized knowledge. The portrayal of Shiva is not meant to present us with only a pleasing appearance, any more than life is always kind. Our encounter with Shiva is meant to shake us up, to stir our inner transformative energies ; to get us to question ourselves and all that we may hold to be truth or reality.! ✨👁🕉🔱🐍💀🌙🌀🐚❤️✨ artwork @rcgraphy 🎨✨🙏
