Union says worker shortage to affect defence capabilities Naval ship destroyer HMS Enterprise is seen near Norfolk, Va., in this handout photo provided by the U.S. Navy June 12, 2014. REUTERS/U.S. Navy/Handout via Reuters A shortage of sailors is to affect the ability of the shipyard to construct the next generation of warships, officials said. The U.S. Navy is planning to purchase two Royal Navy destroyers as soon as next year, replacing current nuclear-powered destroyers in Portsmouth and Essex. The first ship, scheduled to enter service in 2024, would be the first of the new class, which are smaller, lighter and less complex than the more than 200-year-old nuclear-powered vessels currently being developed in Bath, Britain. The government is also moving forward with the delivery of 10 nuclear-powered submarines for the next 20 years, as it makes the case for spending more on defence in an uncertain global environment. A navy official said at a press briefing that a shortage of sailors at Bath was the biggest problem confronting the shipyard and called on it to "prove their skills." The contractor, Newport News Shipbuilding, is under scrutiny from U.S. officials over its handling of the accident in 2010 of the USS Fitzgerald off the southern Philippines. The U.S. Congress was due to examine the contractor's bid for the second contract for six new nuclear-powered surface warships on June 7-8. 바카라 우리카지노 카지노사이트 ï»¿더킹카지노 카지노 Darbys falls residents stuck with tank water The owners say they are concerned about their neighbors' water problems. The residents of a rural community in New Hampshire that faces a severe water crisis have been told that they should treat their homes and gardens before using their local tap, and that city water suppliers have been unable to deliver the water they ordered. Residents of the village of Ponte Vedra, about 50 miles east of Boston, have been told to turn off their tap, leaving their tap water to sit for several hours after they change water. Residents and neighbors of a community in Vermont say they have experienced problems with a local water utility. A town in Oklahoma City that has been shut off from local water supplies after months of fighting the city's water problem has been turned off for weeks at a time. Residents and neighbors of an apartment community in New Jersey are being told the utility company has been unable to deliver the water it ordered. The federal government has placed an order for up to a billion gallons of water to help people affected by the Flint, Michigan, water crisis, and has sent a team to the Middle East to provide relief supplies, the New York Times reported. The crisis in Flint, Michigan, has been brought about largely because of a lack of corrosion control at the corroded pipes that feed water to the city's residents. The government issued the emergency order after news reports and activists raised concerns about the health hazards of lead paint in Flint's homes. The report said water supplies for residents of Flint's Flint area had been shut off, and that some residents had started feeling sick or even dying from drinking water that comes from the river that Flint switched from drinking the city's city water to drinking the Flint River water. The Flint River, which flows into the Black River, is considered to be safe to drink because its lead levels have been lowered and because the water quality and appearance is much better than the water people used during the crisis, which resulted in a poisoned population.
