    A Deeply Fractured US

    Is that a new legal team, the ones that quit because he didn't pay them, or the ones with their licences suspended for making such spurious claims about the election process and defendent in multi-billion dollar lawsuits? That's just an insane claim, and a lot of other previous reports had...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    What restrictive policies are they talking about that is preventing people from getting into houses that is specific to the LPC? Our requirements for qualifying for a mortgage and the stress test are stricter than in the US, but if you look at how devastating that was when there was even a...

    2022 CPC Leadership Discussion: Et tu Redeux

    I think it's use in technical standards is generally caveated by the assumption that the people involved in that assessment have the necessary expertise, and not random people on the street. You can always call up standards with additional restrictions on acceptable criteria, but that's where...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    And how do you expect the meal lines to work? There are only about 16 seats in the weirdroom with 40+ officers to cycle through. You still need someone to do the serving/scullery function to get folks through and the ships are designed to have all 3 messes in full operation as meal lines to get...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    The RCN isn't getting rid of the steward job requirements; they are just getting rid of the people that are doing the job now and then saying that magically it will get figured out who does it. At the moment, they help feed the crew, are a big part of casualty clearing, and part of pretty much...

    CRCN Message on the Steward Occupation Town Hall (Steward trade elimination)

    So instead of having a generalist trade doing a bunch of different necessary taskings, hire a bunch of specialists and get them to do lower level tasks compared to what they are trained for? You don't need a fully trained cook to do juniour steward jobs, you don't need FSAs to manage NPF and the...

    Replacing the Subs

    Well, for sure, but I think gives a bit of insight into how difficult building subs are if German engineers are struggling. I would just be happy if we didn't end up with another batch of one offs no one else in the world is using that do the job safely.

    Replacing the Subs

    Would be a bit strange history wise, but German has some subs meant for export, and I think has things like AIP or fuel cell technology. The nice thing generally there would be a standard model, used by a number of other countries is a larger user base to work with on things and hopefully makes...

    Replacing the Subs

    Plot twist; the yard is on a landlocked body of water, so can also subsidize heavy transport and fit in one or more assembly yards! All KICs, all the time! #IRBsforall #SewerTubeConvoy2060 #PorkBarrelingisThinkingSmall

    Replacing the Subs

    Subs are on par with building space shuttles; it's massively complicated and very specialized. We can fix ours up to a point, but we have zero capability to build one, and there was a massive learning curve just to do repairs. NSS to build surface ships makes sense, as we already build...

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    No, the 'why isn't anyone saying anything' has been a question for years, given that some bright light put out a NAVORD that allows religious accomodation for beards in SCBA providing the CO can 'demonstrate they can successfully keep a seal'. Which we tested, and found to be impossible if the...

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    I agree? The amplifying info should come from the respective safety orgs to remind people what the regs are. They haven't done it (with the RCN actually pushing for beards in SCBA pretty much every year for the last decade, with the same answer). It's pretty obvious though if there is a...

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    I disagree that it should be left up to unit safety orders; there are safety organizations for each element that should issue clarifying directives. For example, the RCN safety folks should be reminding the RCN that people wearing SCBAs need to be clean shaven on the sealing area IAW the...

    New Dress Regs 🤣

    Allowing ponytails for everyone makes sense to me; if there are no safety issues that prohibit it in one gender doesn't make any sense to restrict it for anyone else. Beards, and facial piercings can have genuine safety issues though so pretty frustrating that these guidelines didn't come with...

    Naval Combat Dress (NCD) uniform [Merged]

    My favourite is when we submit info for cataloging and it gets stripped out of all the fields and left with some useless description like 'valve', or even more confusing, 'night vision viewers' for the thermal imaging cameras. Really hate dealing with them most times.
