USS Dyer (DD-84)
USS Dyer (DD-84) was a Wickes class destroyer that operated from Gibraltar late in the First World War and then served as flagship of the US naval forces in the Eastern Mediterranean in 1919.
The Dyer was named after Nehemiah Mayo Dyer, a US naval officer during the American Civil War and the Spanish-American War, fighting at Mobile Bay in 1864 and Manila Bay in 1898.
The Dyer was built by the Fore River Shipbuilding Corporation of Quincy, Mass. She was launched on 13 April 1918 and commissioned on 1 July 1918.
The Dyer was allocated to the US naval forces based at Gibraltar. On 9 July 1918 she left New York with Assistant Secretary of the Navy Franklin D. Roosevelt on board (making her his flagship for the voyage). She delivered the future president to Plymouth on 21 July, and then left for Gibraltar on 26 July, arriving on 29 July.
On 4 August the Dyer began a period of operations escorting merchant convoys and troop transports between Gibraltar and Marseilles. Between then and the end of the war she carried out the voyage nine times.
Anyone who served on her between 7 July 1918 and 11 November 1918 qualified for the First World War Victory Medal.
After the end of the war the Dyer was allocated to the US Naval Forces in the Eastern Mediterranean. She departed Gibraltar on 29 January 1919 at the start of a rather round-about trip to her new base at Venice. On her way she visited Spalato (Dalmatia), Cattaro (Montenegro), Brindisi (Italy), Constantinople and Beirut before officially reported at Venice on 5 February. She then became the flagship of the force. She took part in relief activities in the Balkans and the Middle East, helped implement the Austrian Armistice (a tricky task after the disappearance of the Austro-Hungarian Empire) and carried passengers and supplies around the Adriatic.
On 11 May the Dyer (along with the battleship Arizona (BB-39) and the destroyers Luce (DD-99) and Manley (DD-74) arrived at Smyrna, in the Ottoman Empire, to help prepare for the occupation of the port by Greek forces.
Soon after this she departed for the United States, transporting two Members of Congress back to New York, where she arrived on 14 June 1919. She had a limited post-war career. She was in the reserve in reduced commission from 1 October 1919-31 October 1920. She then operated from Charleston until 3 April 1922, when she departed to Philadelphia, where she was decommissioned on 7 June 1922. She was sold for scrap on 8 September 1936, to help satisfy the terms of the Second London Naval Treaty of 1936.

Epidemiology. 2010 Sep21(5):658-68. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/20585256?tool=bestpractice.com Identifying the circumstances surrounding, and the symptoms associated with, a fall helps to determine the underlying cause, which in turn emphasizes the importance of obtaining a detailed history of the fall. Identifying the cause will determine whether a more urgent medical evaluation is necessary to address life-threatening causes of falls and their consequences.
Identifying the cause of a fall will also help to identify the risk factor(s) most likely to be contributing to falls and facilitate appropriate interventions to reduce the risk of future falls.

The US Preventive Services Task Force recommends exercise (e.g., group exercise, Tai Chi, multicomponent exercises) or physical therapy for the prevention of falls in community-dwelling adults ages ≥65 years who are at increased risk of falls, but does not recommend vitamin D supplementation for the prevention of falls.

One Cochrane systematic review found that multiple component interventions (offering the same component interventions to all people without taking into account any assessment of risk of falls most of which include exercise) may reduce the number of falls, and the risk of falling, compared with usual care or attention control in older people living in the community. The review also found that multifactorial interventions (component interventions that differ between people depending on their assessment of risk of falls) may reduce falls in older people in the community compared with usual care or attention control.

A subsequent Cochrane review concluded with high certainty that exercise (primarily involving balance and functional exercises) reduces the rate of falls and the number of community-dwelling older people experiencing falls.

USS VIRGINIA Cruise Books:
Built in Virginia by Virginians, USS VIRGINIA was constructed at Newport News Shipbuilding and Drydock Company. Her sponsor was Virginia Stuart Warner, daughter of then Secretary of the Navy and now senior US Senator from Virginia. The ship was commissioned on 11 September 1976 in a ceremony at Norfolk Naval Base.
After the extensive trials and shakedown associated with the first ship of a new class, she entered Norfolk Naval Shipyard for Post shakedown availability. This was the start of a lifetime association between ship and yard for depot level repairs and modifications. After normal workups, including a trip to Northern Europe as a part a major NATO exercise, she made the first of nine deployments. As part of an Indian Ocean deployment in 1980, she crossed the Indian Ocean to visit the Republic of the Philippines. During her third Mediterranean deployment in 1983, she fired nearly 300 five inch rounds into Beirut and assisted when the Marine barracks were bombed. She was honored as Sixth Fleet Top Hand for that deployment. In 1984, she entered Norfolk Naval Shipyard for her single major overhaul and was converted to the Navy's first strike cruiser with the addition of the Tomahawk weapons system and the SM-2 extension of her surface to air capability.
On 28 December 1990, VIRGINIA deployed to support Operation Desert Shield and later Desert Storm. Just after arrival in the Eastern Mediterranean, she launched two Tomahawks into Iraq in support of the liberation of Kuwait. For the last two years of active service, VIRGINIA joined in the war against drugs. During her Caribbean deployment in the fall of 1992, she passed through the Panama Canal and operated in the Pacific for a short time. In the course of her last deployment in the fall of 1993, she directly detected or controlled other Navy assets during successful interdictions of 36,200 pounds of marijuana and 2,000 kilos of cocaine.
In the course of her lifetime, many flag officers called VIRGINIA home while embarked at sea. The first was Admiral H. G. Rickover, who embarked during sea trials in July 1976. The last was Admiral Donald Dyer, COMSTANAVFORLANT in March 1993. She won the Battle E competition four times during her lifetime as the best nuclear cruiser on the East Coast and has won countless department awards.

Hilariously Funny Bard Jokes
Here is a list of D&D jokes for bards that will make you bark with laughter.
73. Why should an optimal party have a rogue and a bard? It balances out the prose and cons.
74. Why do bards who are dwarves sound better by candlelight? One can shove wax in their ears.
75. Why was the musician kicked out of the tavern? He was bard!

Though Hunter demolishes vehicles of many makes and models during the series' seven seasons, he is most often seen cruising in a variety of Dodge Monacos, beginning with the pilot episode, in which he drives a dilapidated '77 model. Most notably, Hunter cruises for criminals in a moss-green '77 Monaco for much of the series' run. Conversely, McCall often appears driving smaller, sporty numbers, such as her '84 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z and her '87 Daytona Shelby Z.
Season four introduces Erik Estrada as Sgt. Brad Navarro in a three-part storyline. Best known as Officer Frank "Ponch" Poncherello on CHiPs, Estrada's Sgt. Navarro helps Hunter and McCall bag a serial rapist known by the moniker Big Foot. A departure from his lighthearted adventures as a California highway patrolman, here we see Estrada in a more gritty and violent environment.
