Fairfax DD- 93 - History

Fairfax DD- 93 - History


Donald McNeil Fairfax, born 10 March 1818 in Mt. Eagle, VA., entered the Navy as a midshipman 12 August 1837. As executive officer in San Jacinto, on 8 November 1861 he boarded the British SS Trent to remove Confederate commissioners after the ship had been stopped by his captain. His distinguished service in the Civil War included command of Caguga, Nantucket, and Montauk. Rear Admiral Fairfax retired 30 September 1881, and died at Hagerstown, Md., 10 January 1894.

Fairfax (DD-93) was launched 16 December 1917 by Mare Island Navy Yard, sponsored by Mrs. H. George, and commissioned 6 April 1918, Lieutenant Commander S. C. Hooper in command.

Fairfax arrived at Hampton Roads 6 June 1918 for convoy escort duty out of Newport News. She guarded convoys of troop transports to midocean meeting points with escorts who had come out of English and French ports to meet them. Fairfax also guarded convoys moving between coastal ports, and patrolled off the coast until 16 October, when she stood down Hampton Roads bound for Brest, France, escorting a troop convoy. On 18 October, she left her convoy to rescue 86 survivors of torpedoed USS Lucia, an NOTS ship, and on 27 October, arrived at Brest for patrol ant escort duty in European waters.

On 3 December 1918, Fairfax arrived in the Azores to meet and escort to Brest, the transport George Washington carrying President W. Wilson to the Peace Conference. She sailed for home 21 December, reaching Norfolk 8 January 1919. Her post war operations along the east coast and in the Caribbean were broken in May 1919, when she sailed to the Azores to take up station as an observer of the historic first aerial crossing of the Atlantic made by Navy seaplanes. On 19 June 1922, she was decommissioned at Philadelphia, and placed in reserve.

Recommissioned 1 May 1930, Fairfax operated primarily on training cruises for members of the Naval Reserve during the following 2 years, based at Newport, R.I., and Camden, N.J. On 12 March 1932 she sailed from Hampton Roads for San Diego, Calif., arriving 26 March. On the west coast, too, her primary duty was training reservists, but she also took part in gunnery exercises and fleet problems off Mexico, Central America, and the Canal Zone.

Fairfax took part in the Presidential Review taken by F. D. Roosevelt in San Diego in March 1933, then sailed for the East coast, where she continued her reserve training duty. She also patrolled in Cuban waters, and in the summers of 1936, 1937, 1938, 1939, and 1940 sailed out of Annapolis training midshipmen of the Naval Academy. Between October 1935 and March 1937, she served with the Special Service Squadron out of Balboa and Coco Solo, C.Z., operating primarily on the Atlantic side of the Canal Zone.

The destroyer joined in representing the United States Navy at the opening of the New York City World's Fair in April 1939, and after war broke out in Europe that fall, operated on neutrality patrol along with her training duties. On 21 November 1940, she arrived at Halifax, Nova Scotia, where she was decommissioned 26 November, and transferred to Great Britain under the destroyers for-land-bases exchange agreement.

The former Fairfax was commissioned in the Royal Navy as HMS Richmond 5 December 1940. She arrived at Plymouth, England, 31 December 1940 to join the escorts sailing out of Liverpool in the Western Approaches Command. These ships guarded the movement of vital convoys through the most dangerous waters of their passage across the Atlantic. Between June and October 1941, she performed similar duty in the Newfoundland force, and from February 1942 through March, made the dangerous run to Murmansk. Her base for Atlantic escort duty between December 1942 and August 1943 was Greenock, Scotland. Richmond served in the Royal Canadian Navy, based at St. John's, Newfoundland, until December 1943, when with newer escorts available, she was placed in reserve in the Tyne. On 16 July 1944 she was transferred to the Russian Navy, with whom she served as Jivoochyi.

Republicans Try To Rewrite History During Capitol Attack Hearing

On Jan. 6, thousands of Donald Trump’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol. The riot resulted in five deaths. More than 100 officers were injured. Hundreds of arrests were made. But you might never know that listening to Republican lawmakers.

During a House oversight committee hearing on Wednesday discussing what went wrong in police preparation for the Jan. 6 riot, and what the Trump administration did or did not do to quell the violence, Republican lawmakers tried to paint themselves as victims.

“Let me clear: There was no insurrection,” Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) falsely claimed during Wednesday’s hearing. “And to call it an insurrection, in my opinion, is a bold-faced lie.”

Clyde went on to defend those who stormed the Capitol building, saying video of the day’s violence looked to him like “a normal tourist visit.”

It wasn’t a tourist visit. Egged on by then-President Trump to “fight like hell,” hundreds of his supporters stormed the Capitol, many with the intent to commit acts of violence against lawmakers who refused to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election.

Rep. Jody Hice (R-Ga.) falsely claimed that Trump supporters were the real victims that day, citing the death of Trump supporter Ashley Babbitt, who was killed by a U.S. Capitol Police officer as she tried to enter the House chamber by climbing through a broken glass door.

“It was Trump supporters who lost their lives that day, not Trump supporters who were taking the lives of others,” Hice said.

Rep. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), a white nationalist sympathizer whose own family disavowed him for helping to incite the riot, attempted to paint Babbitt as a “veteran wrapped in an American flag.” He also described the hundreds of insurrectionists arrested and charged by the FBI as “peaceful patriots” who are being “harassed.”

Rep. Ralph Norman (R-S.C.), questioned whether the rioters were in fact Trump supporters. It echoes an easily debunked conspiracy theory that posits those who stormed the Capitol that day were actually anti-fascists attempting to make Trump supporters look bad.

Wednesday’s hearing signaled another dangerous shift for GOP lawmakers, who continue to deny the results of the 2020 election and now appear to be denying the reality of the insurrection. And Republican lawmakers unwilling to accept the “Big Lie” that former President Donald Trump continues to harp on will find themselves excommunicated from the party.

Take Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), who was ousted Wednesday from her own party’s leadership for doing the bare minimum in her refusal to parrot the Republican lie that the election was stolen.

“The 2020 presidential election was not stolen,” Cheney tweeted last week in response to a Trump statement calling the election “fraudulent.”

“Anyone who claims it was is spreading THE BIG LIE, turning their back on the rule of law, and poisoning our democratic system,” she added.

On Wednesday, Cheney was removed by her own party from her position as House Republican Conference chair, the third-highest rank among Republicans in the House of Representatives. Trump was pleased.

“Liz Cheney is a bitter, horrible human being,” Trump said in a statement after Cheney’s ouster. “I watched her yesterday and realized how bad she is for the Republican Party. She has no personality or anything good having to do with politics or our Country.”

As part of the Republican effort to downplay the insurrection on Wednesday, Reps. Gosar and Hice both brought up the death of U.S. Capitol Officer Brian Sicknick, who was first reported to have died after being hit with a fire extinguisher from the Trump mob, but was later revealed to have died after suffering two strokes. While a medical examiner said Sicknick died from natural causes, the GOP lawmakers neglected to mention that two men were also arrested after spraying Sicknick with chemical spray.

What’s more, at least 140 officers were injured in the day’s attack. Two other officers who responded to the Capitol insurrection later died by suicide.

One of the officers badly injured in the day’s attack was Michael Fanone, a 19-year veteran of the D.C. Metropolitan police force. Fanone was dragged down stairs, beaten with pipes and shocked with stun guns multiple times by the Trump mob. On Wednesday, he attempted to contact House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) to share his experience of the attack. Instead, he was hung up on by McCarthy’s office, Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-Calif.) tweeted.

While GOP lawmakers may hope to convince the public there wasn’t violence on Jan. 6, law enforcement radio dispatch from that day tells a different, more horrifying story.

“We lost the line, we’ve lost the line,” an officer yelled as Trump supporters stormed the Capitol. “We have been flanked and we’ve lost the line.”

Эсминец USS Fairfax (DD-93), 1/700, конверсия

Кода смотришь на флэшдекеры кажется что они особо не поменялись за годы своей службы (естественно до начала массовых конверсий времен войны), и по этому я думал что переделка будет легкой. Но когда я начал переделку я понял что за время его службы практически все на нем было переделано. При чем зачем делали некоторые переделки совершенно не понятно. Например носовую надстройку расширили примерно на 20 сантиметров - зачем не понятно. Так что в процессе постройки модели многое пришлось делать с нуля. Процесс постройки можно как обычно посмотреть на scalemodels.ru.

From institution to community, finding homes for those hard to place.

Joseph McHugh has lived at the Northern Virginia Training Center for 35 years, moving in when he was a teenager. McHugh has cerebral palsy and colostomy and severe spasticity issues.

At the training center, McHugh works with a speech pathologist, nurse, on-campus dietician and is close to an X-ray machine, dental facility and clinic on the grounds.

“My brother would’ve been dead without the training center,” said Chris McHugh, who lives in San Francisco. “He was almost pronounced dead a couple times, except for his proximity to a nurse, the clinic right there.”

Chris McHugh and his sisters Kim Arthurs McHugh of Arlington and Donna McHugh of Centreville are Joe’s legal guardians, and grew up together in Arlington. They’re skeptical about whether there are appropriate placement options so Joe can live successfully outside of the training center, which is slated to close next year.

“I want to be their biggest cheerleader,” said Chris McHugh. “I want to be wrong, to be excited about my brother’s choices and his peer’s choices, but I’ve seen people who don’t have a family advocating for them slip through the cracks, wither on the vine.”

The training center, one of five large regional institutions in Virginia that are operated by the state’s Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, was built to house and provide services for people with intellectual and physical disabilities. The Northern Virginia facility, located on more than 80 acres off Braddock Road in Fairfax, has offered medical, dental and nursing services, physical and occupational therapy, social work and psychology services since opening in 1973.

Though the training centers provided an array of services, the institutional environment also moved people with disabilities out of their communities.

In June 1999, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Olmstead v. L.C. that segregating people with disabilities from society is tantamount to discrimination and a violation of Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Governments or other public organizations, it said, must therefore offer more integrated, community-based services to people with disabilities.

Virginia Code § 37.2-319 calls for a Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Trust Fund that “shall be used for mental health, developmental, or substance abuse services and to facilitate transition of individuals with intellectual disability from state training centers to community-based services.”

Then in a 2011 letter, Assistant U.S. Attorney General Thomas E. Perez notified then-governor Bob McDonnell that the U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division had conducted an investigation into the Central Virginia Training Center in Madison Heights, questioning the state’s compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

The investigation concluded that Virginia “fails to provide services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in the most integrated setting appropriate to their needs in violation of the [American with Disabilities Act],” Perez’s letter read.

“The inadequacies we identified have resulted in the needless and prolonged institutionalization of, and other harms to, individuals with disabilities in [Central Virginia Training Center] and in other segregated training centers throughout the Commonwealth who could be served in the community.”

The other segregated training centers included the one on Braddock Road.

In January 2012, the U.S. Department of Justice and Commonwealth of Virginia filed settlement in U.S. District Court, calling on the state to “create or expand a range of supports and services to individuals with [intellectual disabilities or developmental disabilities] and their families.”

The settlement summary referred to the continued operation of all five regional training centers as “fiscally impractical” and that the state should submit a plan for considering closing all but one institution. In his 2012 letter, Perez wrote the average cost of serving one person in a training center was $194,000 per person annually, while offering them services outside the center averaged $76,400.

According to the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, the average cost of care per individual for FY2014 was $342,504. For FY2015 (through October 2014), the cost rose to $359,496 per individual.

DR. DAWN ADAMS, director of health services with Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services helps oversee the clinical organization of Northern Virginia Training Center, making sure the new community settings for transitioning residents meet their specific needs.

Adams says that of the 73 people still living at the center, down from 152 residents in 2012, more than half have already started a 12-week discharge process.

“It’s a very thoughtful, specific process to ensure there is choice, that there’s a good fit with the provider and they’re able to offer specific supports for that unique individual,” Adams said.

Since October 2011, the state agency has identified 106 community options for Northern Virginia Training Center residents. The options include using individualized Medicaid waivers to acquire services either at home, in a group home setting, or at another intermediate treatment facility.

The key is that residents, their parents and associates should have more choices about how and where they live, ones that are integrated rather than segregated.

“While the training center model developed over time, it didn’t necessarily keep up with the idea that health services have changed quite a bit,” said Adams. “These are individuals, they’re people, their special issues are around the potential vulnerability and a whole bunch of different diagnostic items they embody. The challenge is working towards bringing people into the community, so it’s no longer so foreign, due to lack of exposure.”

Another challenge is the number of waivers there’s a waiting list, said Jean Hartman, assistant deputy director for the Fairfax-Falls Church Community Services Board. “The need far exceeds the number of waivers by the General Assembly every year,” said Hartman.

The Community Services Board runs an intake for people with intellectual or physical disabilities, then determines whether they have an urgent or non-urgent need for a waiver based on the acuity of their conditions.

“The waiver has made it possible for individuals to live and work with their friends and families in their home communities, and made those communities stronger and healthier as a result,” Hartman said.

According to Hartman, in Fairfax County there are 450 people receiving services in the community through Medicaid waivers, from 30 providers in Fairfax County. However, 858 people are still on the “urgent” waiting list for waivers and 375 are on the non-urgent list.

Once you have a waiver, it’s a matter of matching up with the right provider and environment. For this, the Community Services Board, Northern Virginia Training Center staff and family or guardians collaborate to find the right fit.

“Those are hard times,” said Hartman. “It’s not an easy decision they must be matched with folks who do have the capacity to serve them.”

SOME FAMILIES of residents of the Northern Virginia Training Center have viewed the closing as too hasty, that more time is needed to identify proper support providers. Several parents and guardians testified at the public hearing before the northern Virginia delegation headed to Richmond for the 2015 General Assembly session in January.

At the session state Sen. Stephen D Newman (R-23) introduced SB1300, which sought to extend the Northern Virginia Training Center closing until Dec. 31, 2016, prevent the land from being declared surplus once it’s closed and keep three of the remaining regional centers open. The bill, which was co-patroned by numerous Northern Virginia senators and delegates, only made it as far as the Finance Committee.

Reston resident Judith Korf, co-president of the Parents and Associates of Northern Virginia Training Center group, spoke at the hearing on behalf of her son Adam. Adam is 43 and diagnosed with autism and mild learning disability he has severe behavioral issues and requires a high level of skilled supervision.

“The hardest ones to place are the ones that are left,” said Korf.

Chris McHugh is hopeful the process will be successful, but has seen his brother passed up for discharge from the center for more than two decades.

“His friends and peers, some would find appropriate group home placements,” said Chris McHugh. “They would go through his checklist of needs and Joe would never make the cut. He requires a bit more in terms of therapy and care. A day at the bathroom with my brother is an adventure.”

However Adams remains confident all the residents will be able to find proper home and service combinations by the training center projected closing of March 2016.

ONCE THE LAST RESIDENT leaves. the Northern Virginia Training Center, the campus’ future is still uncertain.

Dena Potter at the Virginia Department of General Services said the campus is currently in “the surplus property review process to make a decision on whether the property would be sold.” The state owns the land several properties were purchased for the site from private owners while one was obtained under eminent domain.

Because the 1973 opening predates the county’s Zoning Ordinance of 1978, the underlying zoning for the property is R1, meaning new construction would be limited to one house per acre, without being subject to public hearings and a change to the comprehensive plan.

According to the Virginia Code, if the buildings or property are sold, the money must first be used to make sure the same level and variety of services offered at the training center are available for former residents.

Parents and associates of center residents were scheduled to meet with the Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services Commissioner Dr. Debra Ferguson at the end of March to learn more about the plan to close the training center.

“Theoretically, we’re all supposed to get at least three viable options to choose from and that just isn’t happening,” said Korf. Of around 40 parents and associates who attended the meeting, many, she said, were “very frustrated” with the provider options they’ve been sent to assess so far. “They’ve looked at everything there is to look at and it just wasn’t panning out.”

In the mean time, Adams said the campus will continue to provide dental services, something more difficult to establish than a primary care provider.

Joe Rajnic, the NVTC acting facility director, was not available to comment for this story.

World Trade Center Reopens

In the aftermath of the World Trade Center bombing, the buildings’ owner repaired the damage, upgraded elevators and electrical systems, put battery-operated emergency lights and luminescent paint in the stairwells, and set up emergency command centers. By 2000 the complex had reached its highest occupancy rate of all time.

But the World Trade Center was struck again during the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, when militants associated with the militant Islamist group Al Qaeda flew hijacked planes into the towers, killing nearly 3,000 people.

Fairfax DD- 93 - History

What does the min_distretention parameter actually mean when calling the sproc sp_MSdistribution_cleanup?
I understand that the max_distretention parameter means the number of hours after which pending replication commands will be deleted (causing the subscriber to require reinitialisation) - but what does the min_ parameter indicate?


Max is the maxiumn amount of time commands will be stored in the distribution database IF subscribers have not picked them up, or if you are using anonymous subscribers.

Min, is the minimum amount of time commands will be stored in the distribution after they have been replicated to named subscribers.

No, min means that 0 seconds after the commands are replicated to all names subcribers the commands can be replicated by the distribution clean up task - which runs every 10 minutes. So it means that if it is 0 it could be deleted anywhere from 0 seconds to 10 minutes.

I would set it to 0 and set my max to 72 hours. This way if you go away on a three day weekend and your replication agents fail at Friday at 5:00 pm when you come back on Monday at 9:00 there still is a chance that you can get everything going again and send all the commands down to the subscriber. If the subscriber is offline for more than the lesser of the publication retention period or the history retention period your subscription will be expired.

The unit is hours. 0 hours is 0 seconds. So in theory if the distribution clean up agent runs just as the distribution agent completes, these commands will remain in the distribution database 0 seconds after they have been replicated.

You are correct that I did mean deleted where I wrote replicated.

If you are using anonymous subscriptions this might explain why you are seeing them hanging around for 72 hours.

Hi Hilary,
Thanks for the swift reply.

If min_distretention is zero, does that mean commands (whether replicated or not) are retained until max_distretention is reached?
We've got push subscriptions only, so could we reduce the size of the msrepl_commands table by setting min_distretention to a positive value? eg. if we set it to 1 and max_distretention to 24 would that mean when the cleanup job ran it would remove all commands that had been replicated over an hour ago, and all commands that are older than 24 hours regardless of whether they've been replicated or not?

Fred Trump, who ran an apartment empire in the outer boroughs and inspired his son Donald to change Manhattan’s skyline, died yesterday at the age of 93.

Fred Trump had been hospitalized with pneumonia the past few weeks at Long Island Jewish Medical Center.

The elder Trump, owner and founder of the Trump Organization, was only 17 when he started out in the real-estate business – so young, he needed his mother’s signature to validate leases.

He began building and selling one-family homes in Queens, and eventually made millions on luxury houses and high-rises in Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island.

His sons, Donald, Robert and Fred Jr., spent summers working at Trump construction sites and rent-collection offices.

“As children, Bob and Donald used to follow Mr. Trump all over and were fascinated by the bulldozers and other heavy equipment,” said Richard Levy, a family friend and senior vice president of Tischman Real Estate Services.

Donald Trump, who as a young boy used to glue toy blocks together into giant skyscrapers, said yesterday, “My father was my inspiration.”

While his dad concentrated on the outer boroughs, Donald set his sights on Manhattan, which Fred Trump had thought too risky.

“I gave Donald free rein,” Fred Trump once said. “He has great vision, and everything he touches seems to turn to gold.”

Business was Fred Trump’s passion, and he took little time off.

“He came in the office every day until the day he went to the hospital,” Levy said.

Trump lived in the Jamaica Estates section of Queens, where he raised his family.

He is survived by Mary, his wife of 63 years sons Donald and Robert, both real-estate developers daughters Maryanne, a federal judge in New Jersey, and Elizabeth, a bank executive and eight grandchildren. Fred Jr. died in 1981 at age 43.
