Navy Commander Who Misled Families Into Drinking Poisoned Water Given Award Upon Retirement | Task And Purpose

Must Read

In June, Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam Commander by Navy Capt. Erik Spitzer was relieved of its command. Spitzer has been chastised for tricking families into consuming contaminated water. His recent retirement earned him the Legion of Merit, his award citation praised his response to the leak of Red Hill fuel storage facility. The Navy did not reply to whether Spitzer or other Navy officers were disciplined. Navy authorities and officials were accused of presenting residents of Pearl Harbor-Hickam with contradictory information.

On one such occasion, Spitzer informed people that the water was safe to consume. The next day, the Hawaii Department of Health advised “all Navy water system customers” to avoid using the water. According to an internal Navy assessment, Spitzer’s speech was one of four “key friction points” that severely affected public confidence in the Navy. Capt. Mark Sohaney succeeded Spitzer during the official change of command ceremony. Later, Spitzer apologized for causing misunderstanding, stating that he wished he had used “more caring and affirming terms.” According to the Navy’s assessment, the Red Hill plant flaws persisted while the fuel leaks “persisted.”

  25. Lübecker Bucht: Seit Samstag (8. Mai) ist Urlaub in der Lübecker
    Bucht wieder möglich. Die Nachfrage ist groß – was sich auf die Kosten der Unterkünfte auf Sylt auswirkt.

    Die allgemeinen Kontaktbeschränkungen gelten. Einige Bundesländer haben trotzdem erste Öffnungsschritte gewagt – auch bezogen auf den Tourismus.
    In Schleswig-Holstein bieten vier Modellregionen touristische Übernachtungen und Restaurantbesuche an.
    In Nordfriesland, der Schlei-Region mit Eckernförde sowie der Lübecker Bucht und in Büsum sind Hotels,
    Ferienwohnungen und Campingplätze für Touristen geöffnet.
    Das Modellprojekt ist bis zum 31. Mai befristet,
    eine Verlängerung um den Monat Juni ist möglich, teilt der Kreis
    auf seiner Internetseite mit. Urlaub ist mancherorts
    schon an Pfingsten 2021 (22. bis 24. Mai) möglich.

    Dazu gehört etwa ein negatives Testergebnis
    bei der Anreise sowie eine Testung alle 48
    Stunden. Urlaub ist möglich, aber auch hier werden regelmäßige Testungen verlangt, wie es in der Allgemeinverfügung
    des Kreises Rendsburg-Eckernförde heißt. Nordfriesland/Sylt:
    Urlaub auf Sylt oder im Kreis Nordfriesland ist unter Einhaltung bestimmter Corona-Regeln möglich.
    Schlei-Region/Eckernförde: An der Ostsee in Eckernförde und in der Schlei-Region läuft
    das Tourismus-Modellprojekt schon seit Mitte April. Urlaub an Pfingsten 2021: Wo ist eine Auszeit in Deutschland
    möglich?

  26. Nur aus dringenden betrieblichen oder in der Person des Arbeitnehmers liegenden Gründen ist eine Übertragung des Urlaubs aufs nächste Kalenderjahr
    statthaft; dann muss der Urlaub in den ersten drei
    Monaten des folgenden Kalenderjahrs gewährt und genommen werden.
    Kuren und Schonzeiten dürfen nicht auf den Urlaub angerechnet werden, soweit ein Anspruch auf Entgeltfortzahlung im Krankheitsfall (Entgeltfortzahlung) besteht.

    Während des Bestehens des Arbeitsverhältnisses gilt ein Abgeltungsverbot.
    6. Vergütung: Urlaubsentgelt, Urlaubsgeld. Erkrankt
    ein Arbeitnehmer während des Urlaubs, so werden die durch ärztliches Zeugnis nachgewiesenen Tage der Arbeitsunfähigkeit auf den Jahresurlaub nicht angerechnet.
    Kann der Urlaub wegen Beendigung des Arbeitsverhältnisses ganz oder teilweise nimmer gewährt werden, so ist er abzugelten.
    Mit Ablauf des Übertragungszeitraums wird der Arbeitgeber deren Verpflichtung zur Urlaubsgewährung frei, soweit er nicht die Unmöglichkeit
    der Urlaubsgewährung zu vertreten hat. Hat der Arbeitnehmer im laufenden Urlaubsjahr nur einen Teilanspruch wegen nicht erfüllter Wartezeit, so ist dieser Urlaub
    auf verlangen des Arbeitnehmers auf das ganze nächste Urlaubsjahr zu
    übertragen und mit dem Urlaub des folgenden Jahres zu gewähren.

  28. Greetings from Idaho! I’m bοred to tears at work so I decided tо browѕe yor ѕite on my iphone during ⅼunch break.

  29. I have been browsing online more than three hours today, yet I never
    found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me.

  31. Am kommenden Montag starten in Nordrhein-Westfalen die Sommerferien. Doch nach dem Corona-Ausbruch im Schlachtbetrieb Tönnies gelten im Landkreis Gütersloh erneut strenge Einschränkungen, geschätzt Ausbreitung des Virus einzudämmen. In den Urlaub können die Bewohner trotzdem fahren,
    sagt Ministerpräsident Laschet – nur sind sie schon jetzt nicht mehr in allen Urlaubsregionen willkommen. Und wenn das mal sich auch auf die geplanten Urlaubsreisen der Anwohner auswirken. Das solle auch kontrolliert werden.
    Und selbst ohne Ausreisesperre könnte die Ferienreise für
    die Gütersloher schwierig werden. Der Landkreis
    Gütersloh steht kurz vorn Sommerferien unter einem “Lockdown”.
    Ein direktes Ausreiseverbot gilt für die rund 370.000 in dem Landkreis lebenden Bewohner zwar nicht,
    wie Ministerpräsident Armin Laschet betonte:
    “Wer Urlaub plant, kann das natürlich machen.” Im nächsten Atemzug rief er die
    Bürger aber dazu auf, “ein andermal aus dem Kreis heraus in andere Kreise zu fahren”.
    Denn schon jetzt stehen mehrere Urlaubsregionen bundesweit den potenziellen Gästen aus der “Lockdown”-Region skeptisch gegenüber.

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people
    could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of
    text for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
    space it out better?

  34. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you
    relied on the video to make your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be
    giving us something informative to read?

  35. With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
    unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it seems
    a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you
    know any ways to help reduce content from being ripped off?
    I’d certainly appreciate it.

  36. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your blog?
    My blog site is in the exact same niche as yours and my
    users would truly benefit from some of the information you provide
    here. Please let me know if this alright with you.

    I think that you need to publish more on this subject, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people do not discuss
    such subjects. To the next! All the best!!

  38. It is appropriate time to make some plans for the future
    and it is time to be happy. I’ve read this post and if I could
    I want to suggest you few interesting things or suggestions.
    Perhaps you can write next articles referring to this article.
