The making of an Air-force Advert

Here is a great advert for being part of the US Para-Military rescue team and also, how they put the advert together. Amazing how the advert turns out compared to the acting.

USAF Pararescue because even SEALs and Rangers need to call 911 sometimes.

Film crew from Los Angeles, California came to Vandenberg air force base to shoot an official air force commercial. The commercial featured a search and rescue team helping out an injured airman during a mission. Airmen from Vandenberg as well as other air force bases worked together as actors and extras to put the commercial together.

Power Lift-Off of Spy Satellite

Who knows what this satellite is for, but it sure is a POWER lift-off

Its the most powerful rocket ever launched from Vandenberg Air Force Base. For the first time, a Delta IV heavy rocket is at the base being prepped for launch. Since the 1960's, Delta rockets have carried satellites into orbit.

The Delta IV is meant to accommodate larger loads. Lieutenant Colonel Brady Hauboldt, launch squadron commander, said, "This is essentially three rockets put together on one space launch and it'll be quite a show."

In fact, in it's final configuration, it will stand around 238 feet tall. To give you a comparison-- the rocket is as tall as a 23-story building. As for its power, it's incredible. It can launch a school bus that weighs more than 28,000 pounds into orbit, around 22,000 miles above the earth. Hauboldt, said, "It allows us a new capability for our nation that we hadn't had previously."

Jeffry Picower's widow of Madoff refund - "Settlement honors what Jeffry would have wanted!"

Compliments NEW YORK ( The effort to recover money for victims of Bernard Madoff took a dramatic turn Friday when Preet Bharara, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, said that the widow of one of the Ponzi scheme's biggest beneficiaries agreed to turn over $7.2 billion. She had agreed to return "proceeds" collected over 35 years. His widow has denied that her late husband knew he was benefiting from a scam. "I am absolutely confident that my husband Jeffry was in no way complicit in Madoff's fraud and want to underscore the fact that neither the trustee nor the U.S. attorney has charged him with any illegal conduct," she said. Picower also said she hopes the settlement will ease the suffering of the victims.

Interestingly, Barbara professes her late husband’s innocence and has said that she wants to return the money because it’s the right thing to do.“This settlement honors what Jeffry would have wanted,” she said in a prepared statement, “which is to return this money so that it can go directly to the victims of Madoff.” If this is true - what what a powerful and moral response! Kudos to Barbara! She did the right thing!!!!!
