Mark Ferguson‘s remarks focused on Navy’s role in defense strategy and priorities recently announced as part of the Fiscal Year 2013 budget submission. He also discussed other personnel and readiness topics.Held several times throughout the year, SGLs provide insights into current and emerging national security priorities from the leaders who guide them, and help students and faculty link their study, teaching and research efforts to the defense needs of the nation.“Our strategy places a premium on global presence with a rebalance toward Asia-Pacific and the Middle East” said Ferguson. “It balances future capability with current readiness.”Ferguson told the audience that while in some cases force structure may be reduced, the Navy and Marine Corps will remain “agile, flexible, ready, and technologically advanced while retaining core Navy-Marine Corps warfighting capabilities.”Emphasizing the Navy’s critical role in national security and economic prosperity, Ferguson said that the Chief of Naval Operations’ three tenets of warfighting first, operate forward and be ready were the “lenses” that Navy budget priorities where focused through.Before taking questions from the audience, Ferguson discussed what he believes is expected from Navy leaders and how they must make a difference daily.“Be ready to lead–each of you are empowered to make contibutions and commitments to make our Navy a better place,” he said. “In today’s Navy you have to bring your ‘A-game’ every day.”Ferguson is a 1984 graduate from the Naval Postgraduate School with a Master of Science Degree in Computer Science, and was honored with the university’s Distinguished Alumni Award in December of 2008In addition to SGL remarks Ferguson and his wife Lauré met with U.S. and international Sailors, civilians and families from NPS and Naval Support Activity Monterey.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , February 19, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: Talks View post tag: News by topic View post tag: usa View post tag: Vice Chief View post tag: Leadership February 19, 2012 View post tag: strategy Share this articlelast_img read more

Rick Pitino’s Greek team advances to finals after opponent just quit at halftime

first_imgMORE: Pitino has “deep interest” in coaching NBA team”We should have left earlier,” Olympiakos general director Christos Stavropoulos told reporters. “The Greek state needs to take measures to clean this filth.”Olympiakos players received three fouls in the first 28 seconds, and Panathinaikos held a 40-25 lead at halftime. But while Olympiakos blamed the refs, Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos saw things differently.”It was something already planned,” he told reporters. “It seems that they cannot pay their players. They threw the towel and now they say that they don’t like the refs. Maybe the Aggelopoulos family wants to leave Olympiakos and to blame us and the refs. It’s unacceptable. You lose or win on the court.”And as if things weren’t weird enough, Giannakopoulos apparently tried to send a message after the game: Basketball:Panathinaikos – Olympiacos 13.02.2019.Olympiacos left the game at halftime while complaining about the referees.After that Panathinaikos owner Dimitris Giannakopoulos put a pair of woman’s underwear on the empty bench of Olympiacos. pic.twitter.com/NVXNWF8wg1— When Sunday Comes (@WSCsupporters) February 13, 2019As a result of the forfeit, Olympiakos could face points deductions in the Greek league.Pitino took to Twitter to comment about the bizarre finish afterward.Well in 42 years of coaching I, thought I had seen it all. Up 15 at halftime. Motivating my team to come out with great intensity the first 5 minutes. We were fired up except Olympiakos never came back out. Game over. Onto the Greek Cup finals in Crete on Sunday #paobc— Rick Pitino (@RealPitino) February 13, 2019Pitino’s team thus will advance to the Greek Cup final against PAOK. Rick Pitino has had a long career as a basketball coach, but he saw something new this week.During a Greek Cup semifinal game against Pitino’s Panathinaikos, the Olympiakos team just quit at halftime. And not in the cliched sense that they didn’t play well. They literally didn’t come back onto the court for the second half. The team, led by former Cavaliers coach David Blatt, apparently was upset by the refereeing that took place.last_img read more
