Aerojet is part of GenCorp, a major technology-based manufacturing company headquartered in Sacramento, California. GenCorp’s two businesses, Aerojet and Real Estate, concentrate on two principal market areas: aerospace and defense, and real estate. GenCorp’s businesses work toward the Company’s vision to be “one of the most respected companies in the world.”
Aerojet says that it is a leader in the development and manufacture of aerospace propulsion systems; precision tactical weapon systems; and armament systems, including war-head and munitions applications. Aerojet is the second leading provider in both the solid and liquid propulsion market areas, as well as the number one provider in the tactical segment area of solid propulsion.
Aerojet Ordnance Tennessee Inc (a subsidiary of Aerojet) manufactures DU penetrators and produces shielding and oxide from DU.
Alliant Techsystems (ATK)
ATK’s Ammunition Systems Group is the largest ammunition manufacturing entity in the world, supplying products to the military, hunting, sport shooting, homeland security, and law enforcement markets. The group operates the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant in Independence, Missouri, where it has the capacity to produce 1.5 billion rounds of small-caliber ammunition annually. It also operates the Radford Army Ammunition Plant in Radford, Virginia, where it produces rocket and gun propellants and other energetic materials. The group’s commercial products include some of the most widely known brands in the industry, including Federal, CCI, Speer, Outers, and American Eagle. ATK has sales of approximately $3.3 billion (fiscal year 2006).
Alliant Techsystems makes DU shells for use in U.S. tanks, armoured personnel carriers, aircraft and howitzers.
Alliant has produced over 15 million 30 mm PGU-14 shells (used in the A10’s Gatling Gun) for the U.S. Air Force and over a million 120mm M829 rounds for the U.S. Army. In February 2006, U.S. Army placed an order for $38 million of M829 rounds, bringing the total order from the Alliant Techsystems to $77 million for fiscal year 2006
The M829A1 Kinetic Energy round was designed as a replacement for the M829 KE round. The M829A1 utilizes a redesigned projectile and improved propulsion system to increase on-target performance.
The M829A1 is combat proven in Operation Desert Storm where the round became known as “The Silver Bullet.”
The M829A3 is the newest design of the U.S. Army’s Kinetic Energy tank cartridge. The round has proven itself to have outstanding accuracy and lethality. The M829A3 utilizes state of-the-art composite sabot, propellant, and penetrator technologies to ensure that the U.S. armoured forces will maintain battlefield supremacy well into the future.
PGU-14 API (30mm)
The PGU-14 API has the kinetic energy needed to defeat armour. Its projectile possesses a high-density penetrator and demonstrates the follow-through fragmentation and pyrophoric effects for maximum effectiveness. The 30mm PGU series is currently in use with the 30mm GAU-8/A Gatling gun on the U.S. Air Force A-10 close-support aircraft.
BAE Systems (UK)
BAE Systems is “a systems company innovating for a safer world and delivering total solutions to customer requirements, from the outermost reaches of space to the depths of the oceans.” BAE Systems has annual sales of £12 billion and employs more than 90,000 people world-wide .
BAE Systems designs, manufactures, and supports military aircraft, surface ships, submarines, space systems, radar, avionics, C4ISR, electronic systems, guided weapons and a range of other defence products, many of these with international partners.
BAE subsidiary Royal Ordnance (RO Systems) has now ceased production of the CHARM L27 120mm DU round citing environmental reasons – the real reasons revolve around a limited market for a specialised product that can only be fired from the UK-made Challenger tank.
In 2006 BAE decided to move into ‘environmentally friendly’ munitions – as part of their attempt to move towards ‘corporate social responsibility’:
120mm CHARM 3 APFSDS L27
It is the only depleted uranium ammunition currently in use with the British Army. It was fired by the British Challenger II tank in both Gulf Wars. Produced by Royal Ordnance Defence, a part of BAE Systems. UK stocks of this round are now passed their safe usage date.

“If you’ve already contacted your senators to support the Sanders-Lee resolution on the tragic war in Yemen, I now need you to contact them to oppose a resolution designed specifically to undermine it.
We know Bernie Sanders and Mike Lee’s resolution, S.J.Res. 54, must be seen as a threat to war makers. Shortly after it was introduced last week, Senators Todd Young (R-IN) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) introduced a bill that undercuts the best chance we have to end U.S. support of the war in Yemen. 
Senators Young and Shaheen’s bill, S.J.Res. 55, is a weak resolution that would effectively authorize U.S. support for the war, while also allowing senators to appear like they’re acting on the tragedy in Yemen. It provides the political cover to oppose a vote on what we really need – a congressional check on presidential war-making powers.
Please call your senators today:
Call our dedicated campaign line 1-833-STOP-WAR (786-7927) and follow the prompts to connect to your senators’ offices.
I’m hearing a vote on both resolutions could happen Thursday, so please call your senators today! Thank you for taking this urgent action to help bring an end to the horrific humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

Not very much from Encyclopedia Britannica. “Yemenis had developed the South Arabian alphabet by the 12th to 8th centuries BCE, which explains why most historians date all of the ancient Yemeni kingdoms to that era” says Wikipedia. “R”
“With its long sea border between early civilizations, Yemen has long existed at a crossroads of cultures with a strategic location in terms of trade on the west of the Arabian Peninsula. Large settlements for their era existed in the mountains of northern Yemen as early as 5000 BCE. Little is known about ancient Yemen and how exactly it transitioned from nascent Bronze Age civilizations to more trade-focused caravan kingdoms. This may be due to social or official discouragement of research into pre-Islamic civilizations in Arabia.” (Ancient History of Yemen—Wikipedia) “R”
“The Yazidi people traditionally live in northern Iraq, particularly around the Nineveh and Dohuk provinces with large communities in SInjar and Shekhan, where a number of their holy sites are located.
Khalaf Smoqi, from the US-based Yazidi advocacy organisation Yazda, called the Yazidis an ancient people.

“Yazidis believe that they were the first people on earth,” he told SBS.
“You can see that through their traditions.”
Yazda.org says there are about 600,000 Yazidi people in Iraq, of which about 400,000 lived in Sinjar and another 200,000 in the Dohuk province.
“The Yazidis exist also in Russia – about 40,000 people, and in Georgia – about 20,000 people, and Armenia – 35,000 people,” Mr Smoqi.
“And in Syria, it’s very hard to tell because of the Syrian civil war that’s going on right now, it’s less than 10,000 in entire Syria.”
Other estimates of the remaining Yazidi population hover around the 400,000 mark, but exact figures are difficult to pin down.

Ethnically they are originally related to the Kurds and speak Kurmanji, a
northern Kurdish dialect, but Human Rights Watch senior Iraq researcher Belkis
Wille told SBS many Yazidis reject suggestions they are Kurdish.
“If you ask Yazidis whether they are Kurdish, they very vehemently disagree with that,” she said.
“They do not want to be identified as Kurdish. They think of themselves as an entirely separate group. And that feeling of separation from Kurds I think was significantly exacerbated by the fact that on August 3, 2014, when ISIS came in to slaughter them, the Kurdish military forces – the Peshmerga – pulled out entirely in the middle of the night, not warning any of them, and left them at the mercy of ISIS.”
Miss Wille said the Yazidis were also frustrated with Kurdish attempts to “co-opt what happened to them, calling them ‘Yazidi Kurds’, thus calling that ISIS essentially carried out these horrific attacks on the Kurdish community”.
Religiously, the Kurds are Muslim, mainly Sunni or Shia, while the Yazidis follow their own religion, Yazidism.”

“Paul Manafort, the former Trump campaign chairman currently facing charges of financial fraud, may spend the rest of his life in prison, according to a Tuesday court filing from the federal judge overseeing his case.
TS Ellis III, the federal judge presiding over Manafort’s trial in Alexandria, Virginia, ruled that Manafort “is a person of great wealth who has the financial means and international connections to flee and remain at large as well as every incentive to do so.”

‘Traitor!’: WATCH Protester Hurling Russian Flag at Manafort
As such, Ellis wrote, Manafort would remain under house arrest in his Alexandria home except for medical appointments, emergencies, court appearances and meetings with his attorneys. Manafort is also required to wear two bracelets at all times that allow his movements to be tracked by GPS.
“Given the nature of the charges against the defendant and the apparent weight of the evidence against him, defendant faces the very real possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison,” Ellis wrote.
The judge added that Manafort could be granted more freedom if he pledges collateral to ensure his appearance in court. Manafort has not been ordered to surrender any collateral, but does face a $10 million fine if he fails to show up to his July 10 court date.

Paul Manafort Pleads Not Guilty in Latest Mueller Probe Charges, Requests Jury Trial
The former campaign chair is being tried in two different courts: Ellis’ district court in Virginia and the court of Judge Amy Berman Jackson in Washington, DC. Manafort filed a motion in the latter court on Monday, offering to put up properties equal in value to $10 million in collateral in exchange for an end to his home arrest.
Jackson has rejected prior motions from Manafort to this effect in the past. His court date in DC is September 17.
The charges against Manafort were filed by Department of Justice special counsel Robert Mueller, who is tasked with investigating alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian actors. All charges levied against Manafort pertain to his work as a lobbyist in Ukraine on behalf of former President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych and his Party of Regions. None of them have to do with his work on the Trump campaign.

Manafort Pleads Not Guilty to Mueller Charges, Trial Set for September 17 – Reports
Manafort was first indicted in October and again in February. The first set of charges were conspiracy against the US, conspiracy to launder money, failing to register as a foreign agent and making false statements. He faces up to 20 years in prison. The second tranche of charges were preparing and assisting in the preparation of false tax returns, failing to report foreign bank accounts, bank fraud and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. He faces up to 10 years in prison for the tax charges and 30 years for the bank fraud charges.
Manafort’s deputy and business partner Rick Gates was similarly slammed with charges. He pleaded guilty to conspiracy against the US and making false statements shortly after the second set of charges and they were dropped in exchange for him cooperating with the investigation.”

The heralding of Ecology in 1966, found for me the eventuality of the Anthropocene, because of that found in Ecology as a science, not a theory. Ecosocialism is part theoretic and part science, which mean socialism predetermines that “socialism” from a near vantage may accumulate the fastest of stress-Points endemic w socio-Polity—maybe even american-Socialists. There are movies or rather videos, that have expounded upon the pre-Ancients as species from other planets and solar-systems. The Solutreans have been traced from ‘outta-Africa’ to the Maidan, or origination of the Acadians (Sumer/cuneiform written-Language). They were from further east, known as Denisovans, has also recently been discovered. What I’ve also felt regarding the eastern u.s.a. is that population and greenery suffice, produced higher civilization, and the Mounds-people proved that score. Yet, what of the height of indigenous-Amers. Were they not to be shorter?

“Were the Solutrean people of stone age southern France the first inhabitants of North America? This compelling docudrama unravels the long lost history of the Solutrean peoples’ migration to the continent over 17,000 years ago!”
“Some of the earliest humans to inhabit America came from Europe according to a new book Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America’s Clovis Culture. The book puts forward a compelling case for people from northern Spain traveling to America by boat, following the edge of a sea ice shelf that connected Europe and America during the last Ice Age, 14,000 to 25,000 years ago. “Across Atlantic Ice: The Origin of America’s Clovis Culture” Across Atlantic Ice is the result of more than a decade’s research by leading archaeologists Bruce Bradley of the University of Exeter in the United Kingdom, and Dennis Stanford of the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. Through archaeological evidence, they turn the long-held theory of the origins of New World populations on its head. For more than 400 years, it has been claimed that people first entered America from Asia, via a land bridge that spanned the Bering Sea. We now know that some people did arrive via this route nearly 15,000 years ago, probably by both land and sea. Eighty years ago, stone tools long believed to have been left by the first New World inhabitants were discovered in New Mexico and named Clovis. These distinctive Clovis stone tools are now dated around 12,000 years ago leading to the recognition that people preceded Clovis into the Americas. No Clovis tools have been found in Alaska or Northeast Asia, but are concentrated in the south eastern United States. Groundbreaking discoveries from the east coast of North America are demonstrating that people who are believed to be Clovis ancestors arrived in this area no later than 18,450 years ago and possibly as early as 23,000 years ago, probably in boats from Europe. These early inhabitants made stone tools that differ in significant ways from the earliest stone tools known in Alaska. It now appears that people entering the New World arrived from more than one direction.

In “Across Atlantic Ice,” the authors trace the origins of Clovis culture from the Solutrean people, who occupied northern Spain and France more than 20,000 years ago. They believe that these people went on to populate America’s east coast, eventually spreading at least as far as Venezuela in South America. The link between Clovis and contemporary Native Americans is not yet clear. Bradley and Stanford do not suggest that the people from Europe were the only ancestors of modern Native Americans. They argue that it is evident that early inhabitants also arrived from Asia, into Alaska, populating America’s western coast. Their ongoing research suggests that the early history of the continent is far more intriguing than we formerly believed. Some of the archaeological evidence analyzed in the book was recovered from deep in the ocean. When the first people arrived in America, sea levels were nearly 130 meters lower than today. The shore lines of 20,000 years ago, which hold much of the evidence left by these early people, are now under the ocean. This is also the case in Europe.

“We now have really solid evidence that people came from Europe to the New World around 20,000 years ago,” Bradley says. “Our findings represent a paradigm shift in the way we think about America’s early history. We are challenging a very deep-seated belief in how the New World was populated. The story is more intriguing and more complicated than we ever have imagined.” “There are more alternatives than we think in archaeology and we need to have imagination and an open mind when we examine evidence to avoid being stuck in orthodoxy,” Stanford adds. “This book is the result of more than a decade’s work, but it is just the beginning of our journey.” Across Atlantic Ice is published by University California Press, Berkeley. –Source University of Exeter”
