While it would be preferable to bring this problem to everyone’s attention without any disrespect to our symbols, this is certainly preferable to giving up the right of freedom of speech or protest.To truly honor our country and its veterans by standing at attention with your right hand over your heart, all of our veterans must be included, as well as all of our country’s greatest principles and rights, which include the right to protest injustices.After all, how can you show respect for my service without also respecting my African-American buddies who fought with me?So please consider America’s proud heritage and people before condemning the actions of those who want to right a wrong and make our country even greater by further reducing this racist problem that has too long reflected on all of us.Stephen AndersonCharltonMore from The Daily Gazette:Schenectady, Saratoga casinos say reopening has gone well; revenue down 30%EDITORIAL: Beware of voter intimidationEDITORIAL: Thruway tax unfair to working motoristsEDITORIAL: Urgent: Today is the last day to complete the censusFoss: Should main downtown branch of the Schenectady County Public Library reopen? Recently while conversing with some fellow veteran friends, the NFL protests by some players during our national anthem was bought up.Some felt this protest was disrespectful to them and those veterans who paid an even greater sacrifice, with their lives, to our country.Our flag and anthem are symbols of our great country. These symbols do not make us great. It’s our Constitution, Bill of Rights, and our melting pot of people that make us great that we must continue to defend.If we hear that some of our fellow citizens, many of them veterans, are being treated by a few bad policemen unfairly, we must respond to that problem.

A senior administration official initially said only that a member of Pence’s staff had been tested and found to have the coronavirus.Trump, speaking later at an event with Republican lawmakers, identified the person as “Katie,” saying she works with Pence as a “press person.” This confirmed multiple US media reports that Katie Miller was the person in question.On Friday, Miller thanked people for their well wishes, and in a tweet said: “I’m doing well and look forward to getting back to work for the American people.”As recently as Thursday, Miller was seen mingling with officials at an outdoor prayer ceremony hosted by Trump and attended by dozens of people, including the wives of Trump and Pence and many senior staff. The US vice president’s spokeswoman became the second White House staffer this week to test positive for the coronavirus, officials said Friday, even as President Donald Trump continued to go mask-free at a World War II commemoration with veterans in their 90s.News that staffer Katie Miller had fallen ill boosted fears that the White House is at risk of becoming a viral hot spot just when Trump is leading efforts to wind down nationwide quarantine measures that have devastated the world’s biggest economy.Miller is spokeswoman for Vice President Mike Pence, giving her frequent access to high-level meetings. She is also married to top Trump aide Stephen Miller, the speech writer behind the administration’s hardline immigration measures. Miller’s positive test disrupted a trip by Pence to Des Moines, Iowa, with six people who may have had contact with her made to get off the airplane.”Out of abundance of caution we went back and looked into all the person’s contacts most recently,” said the senior administration official, who asked not to be named.On Thursday, a Trump spokesman said the president’s valet, a member of the military who is in close contact with the president, had tested positive.Trump and Pence were tested and confirmed to be negative. Both are tested daily.The latest scare came as Trump is pressing for a quicker reopening of the US economy, which has been hammered by the fallout from mass lockdowns and social distancing.White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said there was no risk of a White House outbreak or threat to Trump.”I can just tell you that we’ve taken every single precaution to protect the president,” she told a press briefing. “We clean the facility, we social distance, we keep people six feet away from each other.”Read also: Obama calls Trump’s handling of pandemic a ‘chaotic disaster’Trump: wind blows virus Trump has drawn criticism for refusing to follow his own health experts’ advice on wearing a mask in public. Although wearing a face covering is voluntary, it is recommended by many state authorities and federal doctors.Few of Trump’s staff are ever seen wearing masks.Trump’s latest public outing was to a ceremony early Friday marking the 75th anniversary of the Allied victory over Nazi Germany in World War II.The president, who at 73 is well within the higher-risk group for COVID-19, met eight American veterans ranging in age from 96 to 100. Neither he nor the veterans wore masks, although he kept a few steps from them.”I was very far away from (the veterans),” Trump told journalists. “Plus the wind was blowing so hard in such a direction that if the plague ever reached them, I’d be very surprised.”According to McEnany, the veterans “made the choice to come here because they’ve chosen to put their nation first. They wanted to be with their commander in chief on this momentous day. It was their choice to come here.”McEnany said mask-wearing is a purely personal issue.”This president is regularly tested. This president will make the decision as to wear a mask or not,” she said.Earlier this week, Trump made his first long-distance trip since the nation’s coronavirus lockdown began, visiting a Honeywell mask-making factory in Arizona. Again, he did not wear a mask in public, even while addressing a room full of factory employees, all wearing masks in accordance with company policy.Topics :
In response to growing volumes, Finland-based RoRo and passenger services operator Finnlines has decided to expand its fleet with MS Europalink, a Star-class passenger-freight vessel. Specifically, Finnlines’ Swedish subsidiary, Rederi Aktiebolaget Nordö-Link, bought the 2007-built ship from the Grimaldi Group on January 26, in accordance with the purchase agreement signed earlier.Back in 2013, the ship was sold by Finnlines to the parent company because of insufficient volumes in the Baltic. However, volume trends have reversed and the vessel will join the company on the Germany/Sweden trade.As informed, MS Europalink will be fitted with exhaust gas scrubbers in mid-March and it will start sailing under the Swedish flag on the Malmö–Travemünde route.The vessel, which has a capacity of 4,215 lane meters and 554 passengers, will undergo refurbishment in the public areas, according to the company.Last year, the company launched an investment program to lengthen four of its Breeze-series RoRo ships, including the two optional ones.The first lengthened vessel from the batch, MS Finntide, was delivered to the company in November 2017.Finnlines said that the second vessel, MS Finnwave, has also completed lengthening and is now 30 meters longer. The capacity of the vessel is now 4,192 lane meters, which means that the lengthening added 1,000 lane meters. MS Finnwave has returned to the normal traffic on Uusikaupunki/Turku–Travemünde route.By the end of May, a further two vessels, MS Finnsun and MS Finnsky, will be lengthened.
