Military command posts
Fritz Erich Erich Georg Eduard von Manstein, born Fritz Erich Georg Eduard von Lewinski (Berlin; November 24, 1887-Icking; June 10, 1973), was a German military officer who fought during World War I and World War II, where he attained the military rank of Generalfeldmarschall (field marshal).
Born into an aristocratic Prussian family with a long military tradition, Manstein joined the army at a young age and served on both the Western and Eastern fronts during World War I (1914-1918). He rose to the rank of captain at the end of the war and was active in the interwar period helping Germany rebuild its armed forces. In September 1939, during the invasion of Poland at the beginning of World War II, he served as chief of staff of Gerd von Rundstedt’s Army Group South. Adolf Hitler chose Manstein’s strategy for the May 1940 invasion of France, a plan later refined by Franz Halder and other members of the OKH.

The first sortie (EVA-1) with a duration of 6 hours and 32 minutes was used to explore with the lunar rover the edge of the Hadley rift, installing a scientific station, called ALSEP, and to study the soil to record temperature, heat flow and thermal conductivity.
It also placed a subsatellite in orbit to take photographs, and during the return it went into space (315,423 km from Earth) to collect the photographic film already exposed, in a 38-minute EVA.
The mission ended with splashdown in the Pacific Ocean, and the astronauts were picked up by the helicopter carrier “Okinawa” on August 7, 1971, after 74 orbits to the Moon and a journey lasting 295 h, 11 min and 53 sec.
In July 1972 they were involved in a controversy when it was discovered that they had smuggled 400 letters that they franked on the Moon, for subsequent sale to philatelic collectors, although in the end they received nothing, which earned them a reprimand from NASA. In the end, the astronauts were reprimanded by NASA, but they did not receive anything.

At the Mobile World Congress, as in previous editions, some samples of these technologies could be seen live [with the exception of 802, as mentioned above] and emphasis was placed on the possibilities offered by the AllJoyn platform, which ensures the interoperability of connected devices, through an open source language. Qualcomm has chosen to make AllJoyn available to the open source developer community, as an alternative to Samsung’s concept for connecting its smartphones with its televisions; or, in another case, the link being promoted by Microsoft between Windows Phone and its Xbox consoles.
The above confirms that Qualcomm is not in favor of striding in any one direction, but is taking solid steps in several at once. “It’s a fine-tuning of our core business – explains Enrico Salvatori – which relies on mobile, smartphones and tablets, but does not stay there. In automotive, what we are doing is expanding our mobile platform, and we are doing it because the industry is looking for a mobile platform. It’s an orientation away from the traditional product in automotive electronics. It’s the same with the connected home: we’re trying to bring new value into one of the most classic markets.” In terms of strategic shift, Qualcomm is forced to open a range of relationships with new partners, which will be manufacturers of ‘things’ and not of cell phones.
U.S. Marines and biologists move nearly a thousand endangered tortoises from the desert to new locations safe from a military base expansion. However, the mission carries its own risks.
Data on the habits of these migratory birds are being collected in the African archipelago of Cape Verde. It is hoped that this will serve to assess the state of the marine environment and as a roadmap for their conservation.
In Cusco, Peru, the “Allin Mikuna” program – “good food” in Quechua – seeks to strengthen good food practices and local food production to combat malnutrition.
Climate change, with its long droughts and unpredictable rainy seasons, poses new challenges for agriculture in Côte d’Ivoire. New digital solutions, such as apps, can help.
