Theme: Deliver, Sustain and Modernize Lethal Combat Systems in the Age of Digital and Model Based Engineering
“Digital engineering approaches and methods are a key enabler to delivery of affordable capability to the warfighter with speed and lethality. The Department of the Navy has proactively embraced digital engineering and believes it is the way we must execute business in the 21st century.” Mr. William Bray, DASN (RDT&E)
In June 2018, the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (USD(R&E)) released a Digital Engineering Strategy built on five foundational elements necessary for a Digital Engineering Ecosystem to thrive:
§ Formalize the development, integration, and use of models to inform enterprise and program decision making
§ Provide an enduring, authoritative source of truth
§ Incorporate technological innovation to improve the engineering practice
§ Establish a supporting infrastructure and environment to perform activities, collaborate, and communicate across stakeholders
§ Transform the culture and workforce to adopt and support digital engineering across the life cycle
07/02/19: Intravaia concluded an extensive and multinational fact finding investigation that only Intravaia could have conducted period: “Mr. Javorsky's investigative work was the key to proving my innocence in a complex criminal case. I was falsely accused of a crime, I was facing prison, loss of my career, and the ability to provide for my family. Mr. Javorsky conducted an exhaustive multinational investigation which uncovered incriminating evidence against my accuser. Further, a long history of victimization of other men was also discovered. Mr. Javorsky contacted other victimized men overseas, their lawyers, provided translation for documentation, secured their support for my case, and ultimately helped proved my innocence. Today I have my freedom and my integrity is sound in the eyes of the law and my family. Mr. Javorsky's diligence, breadth of experience, and professionalism helped save my life.”
Update 07/26/19: Covington student’s defamation case against Washington Post and others dismissed by a federal judge. Regardless, this will be won on appeal.
This is a fantastic and correct summary of this lawsuit, which has set the foundation of all future lawsuits against politically biased media, politicians, and actors for defamation. Due diligence, conducting thorough and complete investigations is paramount to prevent a suit, none of which was done. This complaint should be the main assignment in law school. Sandmann is going to win this case period and will be a deterrent for other identical incidents.
05/01/19: This is one of the best arguments for Elon Musk/Tesla, SpaceX and the clear media and business black out of their accomplishments. NASA and hundreds of other associated companies are benefiting from what Elon Musk has accomplished. It is irrefutable.

02/04/19: The Washington State Legislature passed HB 1064. The Governor is expected to sign the bill on Monday, February 4. Once signed, the bill will immediately become law due to the emergency provision.
Here is a summary of what this amended version of I-940 does:
§ Fixed an unintended consequence of I-940 that would have decertified officers when, for example, they were on military leave;
§ Cleaned up language about first aid being a "paramount duty." This created an unintended possibility of requiring officers to prioritize providing first aid despite an ongoing public safety concern, such as an active shooter;
§ The new version has a simpler and clearer definition of the deadly force standard, and balances community concerns with the challenges of law enforcement’s duty to make split-second decisions;
§ Both I-940 and HB 1064 remove "malice" from the definition of use-of-deadly-force standard;
§ Both versions require independent investigations of deadly-force incidents, a significant change. The Criminal Justice Training Commission will hold rulemaking on the definition of what constitutes an independent investigation;
§ Clarifies notifications to tribal governments when an officer’s use of deadly force results in the death of a tribal member; and
§ Adds clarification of reimbursement of defense costs if officers are acquitted or found not guilty.

Update: 07/18/18: Seattle, WA: "BlueGene14" If you or someone you know recently received one of these letters please contact us. A WA subject of very high net worth received an anonymous extortion letter from BlueGene14 at their residence, not through the USPS, demanding $15,000 be sent via bitcoin to a provided receiving bitcoin address or the suspect will provide the victim's family and friends with alleged embarrassing information. We do know there are other victims in the U.S. that received a similar letter from BlueGene14. We have our darkweb/crypto currency tech working on this right now, so I wanted to share some intel and share some pro-active steps.
