WASHINGTON – Deployment of California National Guard officers, trucks and equipment to Iraq has threatened the guard’s ability to respond to a major disaster in the state, acting U.S. Army Secretary Peter Geren has acknowledged. In a letter to California Sen. Barbara Boxer, he said the state’s National Guardsmen have “adequate capability to respond to small and medium domestic missions.” But, he warned, “equipment shortages could potentially limit their capability to fully respond to large-scale emergencies such as a catastrophic earthquake or major flood.” Boxer released the letter Wednesday and lambasted President George W. Bush’s Iraq policies, saying the war had left Americans at risk at home. But California’s National Guard adjutant general, Major Gen. William H. Wade, refuted the Army’s conclusions and said the state is fully prepared to respond to all types of disasters. “The National Guard has always been ready,” Wade said. “We have never failed to respond to any emergency. There are multiple resources that we can get, and we will exercise every one of those if the need arises.” Congress has long questioned the domestic preparedness of the National Guard, particularly as a growing number of its members have been deployed to Iraq. As recently as May, the state National Guard warned that disaster response could be slower as a result. In California, about 3,600 National Guard officers are federalized, with about 1,400 serving in Iraq and the rest in Afghanistan, South Asia or various parts of the United States. In addition, about 200 pieces of California equipment are in Iraq, including Humvees, fuel trucks and cargo trucks. In a letter Wednesday to Bush, Boxer said she was alarmed by Geren’s letter. “As a senator from a state where such disasters are far too common, I urge you to take immediate action to ensure that our National Guard is fully prepared to respond to domestic emergencies,” Boxer said. Wade, however, said the percentage of equipment in Iraq is small. The real problem, he said, is that the National Guard doesn’t have much equipment to begin with – and what it does have is out of date and in poor condition. “The war fight is not what concerns me,” he said. “We never had the equipment to begin with.” But Eric Lamoureux, spokesman for the governor’s Office of Emergency Services, said the state is prepared to deal with any disaster. “The National Guard is certainly a significant asset, but they’re part of a larger toolbox,” Lamoureux said, noting that the state can call upon police, firefighters and other disaster-response units from other states under mutual-aid agreements. As for the Guard’s equipment shortfall, he said, “I don’t think it’s something that should alarm people.” email@example.com (202) 662-8731160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWhicker: Clemson demonstrates that it’s tough to knock out the champHOLIDAY SPIRIT: The family comedy “The Perfect Holiday” opened Wednesday. With a cast that includes Gabrielle Union, Morris Chestnut, Queen Latifah and Terrence Howard, the film will likely appeal to black audiences who have made “This Christmas” such a solid hit. “Holiday” opened in just more than 1,300 theaters on Wednesday and could end up having a five-day gross of about $10 million. WILL IT FLY? Hoping to get some word-of-mouth buzz going, Paramount Vantage is opening “The Kite Runner” in 35 locations today. The movie – which is both in Dari and English – is based on the best-selling novel of the same title. It’s a movie that would seem like a hard sell to mainstream audiences. It tells the story of two young boys in Afghanistan whose lives go in different directions after a violent incident. “Kite” was nominated for the best foreign film Golden Globe award on Thursday. Director Marc Forster, calling from London where he is working on “Bond 22,” said he hopes the nod will result in a bigger box office. “I think it’s so important that people go and see the film, and maybe this will help get more people into the cinema,” Forster said. “It’s a film that humanizes that part of the world.” Can Will Smith stop the year-end box office malaise that has taken hold at the multiplex the past five weekends? His new film, “I Am Legend,” opens in more than 3,500 theaters today, and I think it could debut as high as $50 million. Smith is a safer bet than virtually any other star in Hollywood when it comes to filling the seats. Since 1996, he has had a $100 million-plus grossing hit in nine of the past 11 years including “I, Robot,” “Hitch,” “Bad Boys II,” “Independence Day” and the “Men in Black” franchise. A year ago, his drama “The Pursuit of Happyness” opened in first place on the same weekend and went on to gross more than $100 million. I AM ALVIN: Kids who have already seen “Enchanted” and “Bee Movie” should make up much of the audience for Fox’s “Alvin and the Chipmunks,” which stars Jason Lee of TV’s “My Name is Earl.” Parents who remember the chipmunks from their youth might be happy to accompany the youngsters and give “Alvin” a second-place opening of $12 million to $15 million. HOLDOVERS AND EXPANSIONS: “The Golden Compass” has been a major disappointment with a $25.7 million bow last weekend and poor word-of-mouth. It would do well to retain even half of its debut audience to take in about $13 million, which would land it in third place in its second weekend. Critical darling “Atonement” expands from 32 theaters to 107 locations today. It had a healthy $24,901-per-screen average last weekend. The real movie to watch as it expands to 40 theaters is “Juno,” the critically acclaimed comedy-drama that took in more than $400,000 last weekend playing in just seven theaters. That gave it a staggering $60,000-per-theater average compared with the $7,038 average for “Compass.” firstname.lastname@example.org 818-713-3758 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

2 Bayern Munich players celebrate one of many goals at the Emirates Real Madrid also moved safely through into the quarter-finals of the Champions League with a 3-1 win away to Napoli, as they secured a 6-2 aggregate victory.Belgian Dries Mertens had put the Italians ahead on 24 minutes to raise hope of overturning the first-leg deficit.However, the tie was put to bed with two goals in the space of six minutes, with Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos at the centre of the action.The defender headed in a corner on 52 minutes to level on the night, and then moments later saw another header find the net via a deflection off Mertens, who was credited with an own goal.Substitute Alvaro Morata netted a third from close range in the final minute. 2 Calls for Arsene Wenger to leave Arsenal will increase after being beaten 10-2 on aggregate by Bayern Munich in the Champions League.The visiting Bundesliga champions were hot favourites to advance from the tie having won the first leg at the Allianz Arena 5-1 last month and they were too good for Wenger’s men as they triumphed by the same scoreline.The Gunners had their backs to the wall but started well and took a deserved lead through Theo Walcott before Bayern reacted after the interval.Laurent Koscielny was sent off for bringing down Robert Lewandowski, who scored the resulting penalty before Arjen Robben struck and then Douglas Costa and an Arturo Vidal double inside seven minutes added insult to injury on another tough night for Wenger.It meant Arsenal tumbled out at the last-16 stage for a seventh successive season, a major gripe of French manager Wenger’s critics, who have grown in number this season.After denying reports of a training ground bust-up involving Alexis Sanchez, Wenger recalled the Chilean for part two of a tie Arsenal were never going to win once they had been brutally picked apart in Bavaria.Some 200 supporters marched from Highbury to the Emirates Stadium before the game in protest against Wenger’s position, and plenty more stayed away altogether.The visiting fans also got involved, halting the game early on as they threw till roll onto the pitch and held up a banner complaining about the cost of tickets for the match.If Wenger had not been paying attention to the protest, his night was to bring some bad news before a ball was kicked as Danny Welbeck was taken ill in the warm-up and replaced at the last minute by Olivier Giroud.Manuel Neuer had to be switched on to intercept the marauding Walcott as the England forward broke behind the visitors’ defence.Giroud then had a good chance but was well marshalled by Mats Hummels as he looked to get his head on the end of a Sanchez cross.Arsenal were sharp in attack and soon got the goal their early persistence deserved as Walcott broke into the box after 20 minutes, taking the ball back from Giroud without breaking his stride, and thrashing an effort past Neuer.Arsenal continued to threaten as Bayern appeared lethargic, with Walcott unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty when he was tripped by Xavi Alonso.Walcott hit the outside netting with a similar chance to that which he had tucked away early on before Lewandowski scuffed a great chance wide for the Germans, as the hosts headed into the dressing room disappointed not to be further ahead on the night.And the same story continued briefly after the interval, Aaron Ramsey crossing for Giroud to head onto the roof of the net, with Hummels then having an effort rightly ruled out for offside.But Bayern eased any pressure on themselves as Lewandowski tucked home a penalty after Koscielny brought down the Polish striker when through on goal.Referee Tasos Sidiropoulos originally showed the Arsenal skipper a yellow card but altered his decision and dismissed Koscielny after a conversation with the assistant referee behind the goal.The fate of the tie was sealed when Robben picked up a wayward goal-kick from David Ospina and then robbed Sanchez of possession on the edge of the Arsenal box before finishing coolly.Wenger introduced Mesut Ozil, Lucas Perez and Francis Coquelin but it was Bayern in control, with Lewandowski hitting the post before substitute Costa scored at the end of a speedy counter-attack.Vidal then took centre stage, deftly lifting a cheeky shot over Ospina after a sloppy Shkodran Mustafi pass and then slotting home with Arsenal down and out.

3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now klint finley IT + Project Management: A Love Affair Related Posts Dice asked the participants at Enterprise 2.0 Santa Clara an interesting question: what can you do with enterprise 2.0 tools today that you couldn’t do a year ago? Listening to the responses, three themes surface: adoption, awareness and integration. Much of the improvement we’ve seen in the past year comes not from new tools, but a better awareness of the tools and more people actually using them. The biggest technological change in the past year seems to be more integration between various tools. Adoption – Sure Yammer was available more than a year ago. And before that you could use enterprise IM for real-time communication, and private IRC servers even before that. But if tools aren’t being used, then there isn’t any value.Awareness – Enterprise 2.0 is no longer a fringe idea. As Gil Yehuda points out in the video, business stakeholders are considering enterprise 2.0 solutions for real business problems without having to be sold on the idea of social media first. This is helped by more companies going vertical and/or targeting specific use cases, as Chris Yeh of PBWorks says. Integration – From a technological standpoint, the biggest change of the year has been more interoperation between products. Ross Mayfield talked about Socialtext Connect‘s ability to connect “enterprise 1.0” solutions with enterprise 2.0 solutions. We’d add SocialCast and SimplyBox to that list.We’ve also seen more and more vendors either integrate with each other, like Xobni and Huddle or integrate with SharePoint (many innovation management products are doing that.What can YOU do now that you couldn’t do a year ago?What about you? What can you do now that you couldn’t a year ago? I was surprised not to hear anything about mobile clients or iPads. And I suspect if we were to ask that question this time next year, we’ll all be talking about analytics, but it’s probably still a little too early for that.
