The U.S. and Iraq have signed a Security Agreement calling for the drawdown of U.S. forces from Iraq. Multi-National Force-Iraq has issued a plan for the reduction of forces to 50,000 U.S. troops by Aug. 31, 2010, and a complete withdrawal of forces by the end of 2011. The drawdown from Iraq includes the withdrawal of 128,700 U.S. troops, over 115,000 contractor personnel, the closure or transfer of 295 bases, and the retrograde of over 3.3 million pieces of equipment. This statement focuses on: (1) the extent to which the DoD has planned for the drawdown in accordance with timelines set by the Agreement and presidential directive; and (2) factors that may impact the efficient execution of the drawdown in accordance with established timelines.

The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER For the first time ever, an international coalition of leading researchers, scientists and policymakers has come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. All of the techniques described here - some well-known, some you may have never heard of - are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are already enacting them. From revolutionizing how we produce and consume food to educating girls in lower-income countries, these are all solutions which, if deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, could not just slow the earth's warming, but reach drawdown: the point when greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere peak and begin todecline. So what are we waiting for?

As the United States continues to draw down its forces and prepares to end its military involvement in Iraq, the implications for Iraq's at-risk populations must be considered. Oliker, Grant, and Kaye assess the risks and implications of drawdown and withdrawal for some of the Iraqis in greatest danger, both within Iraq and in neighboring states. The authors conclude with recommendations on how the United States can mitigate identified problems.

The number of fighter aircraft in the Air Force inventory is decreasing, but the demand for experienced fighter pilots is increasing. The authors use a dynamic mathematical model to show that, to keep from damaging fighter unit readiness, fighter pilot production in the active Air Force must be reduced and new approaches to developing and managing personnel with fighter pilot-like skills must be adopted.

Investing with the Trend provides an abundance ofevidence for adapting a rules-based approach to investing byoffering something most avoid, and that is to answer the“why” one would do it this way. It explains theneed to try to participate in the good markets and avoid the badmarkets, with cash being considered an asset class. The bookis in three primary sections and tries to leave no stone unturnedin offering almost 40 years of experience in the markets. Part I – The focus is on much of the misinformation inmodern finance, the inappropriate use of Gaussian statistics, thefaulty assumptions with Modern Portfolio Theory, and a host ofother examples. The author attempts to explain each and offerjustification for his often strong opinions. Part II – After a lead chapter on the merits of technicalanalysis, the author offers detailed research into trend analysis,showing how to identify if a market is trending or not and how tomeasure it. Further research involves the concept ofDrawdown, which the author adamantly states is a better measure ofinvestor risk than the oft used and terribly wrong use ofvolatility as determined by standard deviation. Part III – This is where he puts it all together and showsthe reader all of the steps and details on how to create arules-based trend following investment strategy. A soliddisciplined strategy consists of three parts, a measure of what themarket is actually doing, a set of rules and guidelines to tell youhow to invest based upon that measurement, and the discipline tofollow the strategy
