The United States Sets A New Precedent In Missile Defense

Manchester United Projects Another Revenue Record

Lake Erie (CG-70), intercepted a complex target ballistic missile at the highest point in space ever achieved by the United States Navy. This feat includes the shoot down of the United States satellite in 2008 and any of the previous 32 Aegis Ballistic Missile tests since 2002. In the reality of defending regions from today and tomorrows ballistic missile threats, it is optimal to intercept ballistic missile as high as possible to mitigate the fallout of potential nuclear or bio chemical weapons and to increase battle space. This increased battle space enables other lower segment missile defense systems shot opportunities and provides a complete and pervasive protection against the most sophisticated types of ballistic missile threats. This test closely follows the successful September 10th intercept test of multiple missiles with the use of a layered defense system including Aegis and THAAD in the Marshall Islands of the Pacific. The test by the U.S.S. Lake Erie (CG-70) and its crew demonstrated for the first time the 4.0.2 Aegis configuration coupled with the new SM-3 Block IB interceptor that enables more processing capability to intercept multiple targets while defending the ship at the same time. There are currently three U.S.S. Aegis 4.0.2 ships deployed, the U.S.S. Decatur (DDG-73), the U.S.S. Shiloh (CG-67), and the U.S.S. Lake Erie (CG-70). More of these Aegis modernization ships are being built to increase the existing capability needed within the United States Naval Fleet. This test demonstrated a real scenario by the United States Navy of a single Aegis BMD ship and the capability of its crew to independently detect, track, and engage in a shot doctrine of shooting two SM-3 Block IB interceptors at a single incoming sophisticated ballistic missile target and destroying it with the first interceptor while the second interceptor followed closely behind as a backup in case anything went wrong. This two shot doctrine along with the test history of Aegis BMD of 27 intercepts provides close to a perfect assurance that the incoming ballistic missile will be intercepted.

United States Steel Corporation To Kick Off Annual United Way Campaign With Public Party

Controlled by the American-based Glazer family, United posted record revenue of 363.2 million pounds ($578 million) in the year to June 30, up 13 percent from the previous year. The club said it expects revenue to soar further to between 420 million pounds ($669 million) and 430 million pounds ($686 million) in 2013-14. That would push United closer to Real Madrid, the biggest money-maker in world sport, which reported revenue of 520.9 million euros ($695 million) in 2012-13. United reported a net profit of 17.2 million pounds ($27 million), up from 4.5 million pounds ($7 million) the year before, while the cash balance rose by a third to 94.4 million pounds ($151 million). Despite the financial improvements lauded by the management, some United fans remain angry with the Glazers for heaping debt onto the club during their 2005 leveraged takeover. The cost of servicing the 389.2 million pounds ($622 million) debt stood at 71 million pounds ($113 million). United’s debt has fallen from a peak of 716.5 million pounds (then $1.1 billion) in 2008-09. “We are comfortable with the leverage levels where we are,” executive vice chairman Ed Woodward said on an investor call. He said the club delivered on its targets and objectives during its first year listed on the New York Stock Exchange. “Our commercial business continues to be a very powerful engine of growth enabling the team to continue to be successful,” Woodward said. Commercial income alone grew by 30 percent during the year to 152.5 million pounds ($244 million) as 20 sponsorship deals were announced. United hopes to profit from the appeal of the Red Devils branding in the U.S. where Woodward claims the number of TV viewers watching the team is growing 30 to 35 percent each year.
