The Cadet Ensign acknowledged he misses his home and family while participating in the tour, but also that every seaman needs to learn to be away from their loved ones while on Naval duty. They’ll have plenty to keep them busy in the meantime: when they arrive at each port, the Peruvian Cadets and host countries will participate in ceremonies, greetings, sports and other social activities, with receptions provided by host nation authorities. “They will also perform operational functions such as rotating coverage of guard posts at sea and in port, and emergency and operational battle stations,” said Capt. Saz García. That rotation will move through one post under each of the Naval Unit’s departments. The Peruvian Navy’s guided-missile frigate BAP Villavicencio (FM-52) departed on May 2 for VIEX-2015, a foreign instructional tour through the Americas that will extend until July 14. The Cadets will practice a wide array of skills during VIEX-2015, including administrative tasks.

first_imgDES MOINES — Governor Kim Reynolds has appointed a 44-year-old who was born in Thailand as the next justice of the Iowa Supreme Court. Christopher McDonald has been serving on the Iowa Court of Appeals since September of 2013.“I know that as the first minority or person of color appointed to the Supreme Court, people will have special expectations for me in terms of leadership and mentorship and I understand that. I appreciate that,” he said Wednesday. “I embrace those expectations and I’ll certainly do my best to meet or exceed them.”Reynolds introduced McDonald as the jurist who will fill the vacancy on the Iowa Supreme Court Wednesday at an event in her capitol office.“Judge McDonald has a wealth of life experience that has prepared him exceptionally well to serve Iowans on the Supreme Court,” Reynolds said. “It’s not an easy life. Judge McDonald was born in Bangkok, Thailand as the son of a Scottish-Irish father and a Vietnamese mother, spending his young childhood at military bases around the world before his family eventually moved to Des Moines.”McDonald’s parents separated and he was raised by his mother on the south side of Des Moines. He got his undergraduate degree at Grand View University in 1997 and his law degree from the University of Iowa in 2001.“In law school, he continued working to support his family while also excelling at his studies. He graduated first in his class and following law school he clerked for Judge Hansen on the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals,” Reynolds said. “He practiced law at some of Iowa’s most distinguished law firms and at one of our international insurance companies.”McDonald gave brief remarks after the governor introduced him, thanking his family as well as legal colleagues and clients.“Each of you has given me sage advice over the years about life and the law,” he said, “and I’ve become a better person and a better judge for it and I thank you for your friendship and your mentorship.”McDonald called his five-and-a-half years on the Iowa Court of Appeals as “the most rewarding professional service of his life.”“In the next few weeks, I’m going to wind down my docket as a judge on the Iowa Court of Appeals and commence service as a justice on the Supreme Court. I am truly humbled to have the opportunity to serve in that capacity,” McDonald said. “To my future colleagues on the court, I look forward to many productive years of service together.”Governor Reynolds said the colleagues who recommended McDonald for this new role used the words “brilliant” and “thoughtful” to describe him. McDonald is filling the vacancy created when Justice Daryl Hecht resigned for health reasons.AUDIO of Reynolds and McDonald speaking in the governor’s officelast_img read more

The Yankees rank third even by this standard. But the Red Sox are a clear No. 1 and are about three times as popular as you’d guess from the size of the Boston media market. The Cardinals, Cubs, Giants, Pirates and Reds also over-perform relative to their market size.Red Sox haters might complain that the team’s market is much bigger than Boston alone: They are also the “local” team in the rest of New England (except for western Connecticut).But extent to which a team’s popularity expands may have a lot to do with how well the team is run — and how often it wins. The Toronto Blue Jays theoretically have a whole country to themselves — but they are unpopular relative to the size of the Toronto market itself, let alone as compared to the population of Canada. The correlation between a team’s Google search popularity and its number of post-season appearances since 2004 is .62, a fair amount higher than that between its popularity and its market size (.38).Performing worst relative to its population are the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. I’m somewhat suspicious of this datapoint, however. There are so many variations on the team’s name (“LA Angels,” “Anaheim Angels,” “That Team With Mike Trout and 24 Other People”) that Google Trends might not be picking up on all the ways to search for them, even with its new-and-improved algorithms. Facebook maps of sports fandom, such as the one Facebook just published about Major League Baseball, are one of my favorite things:But as Will Oremus of Slate notes, this approach conceals important information. Facebook’s map, which identifies the team with the most “likes” in each U.S. county, might give you the idea that the Texas Rangers, Colorado Rockies and Minnesota Twins are exceptionally popular. Indeed, they are reasonably well-liked over a broad geographical area. But most of the counties in their territories are rural and have low populations. The problem is analogous to looking at maps of presidential election results by county, which might convey the impression that Mitt Romney won the 2012 election when he did not.Another way to evaluate a baseball team’s popularity is to look at data from Google Trends.Google Trends recently unveiled a beta feature in which it aggregates search terms into topics. For example, searches for “St. Louis Cardinals,” “Saint Louis Cardinals,” “cardinals baseball” and so forth, are grouped under the same topic heading. (The feature can also theoretically avoid false positives; for example, searches for “Texas Ranger” that were seeking information on the defunct television show will not be confused with those for the baseball team.) In most cases, this functionality seems to be quite smart; the topic “Miami Marlins” seems to pick up searches for “Florida Marlins” as well, as the team was known prior to 2012.The chart below lists the number of Google searches for the topic associated with each MLB team. The figures listed are relative to the league average. (The Atlanta Braves’ popularity, for example, is listed as 1.14, which means that they are searched for 1.14 times as often as the average MLB club.) They reflect Google searches worldwide since 2004, except in the case of the Washington Nationals, where I’ve run the numbers from April 2005 forward, because the team played in Montreal before that time.By Google searches, the Rangers have only about average popularity, while the Twins and the Rockies are below average. Conversely, the New York Mets, who didn’t win a single county in the Facebook map, are the sixth-most searched for team worldwide.The most striking feature of the Google data, however, is the dominance of the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox. They are searched for 3.8 and 3.7 times, respectively, more often than the league average, and more than 10 times as often as the least popular teams.The Yankees, of course, have a large population to draw from: There are roughly 20 million people in the New York metro area. How does each team’s Google search popularity compare to the size of its television market?We make that comparison in the table below. I’ve listed each team’s popularity on Google, the relative size of its TV market (markets with two teams are divided evenly between them), and then taken the ratio between the two. read more
