As the Army deals with some of its biggest recruiting challenges in years, the service is opening up a pilot preparatory course to help bring in potential soldiers and is implementing a handful of other measures.

Starting in August, the Army will begin its Future Soldier Preparatory Course (FSPC) in hopes of better preparing recruits for the physical and academic rigors of boot camp and the Army as a whole.

“FSPC will help prospective soldiers overcome barriers to service,” Lt. Gen. Maria Gervais, deputy commanding general of Army Training and Doctrine Command, told reporters Tuesday during a roundtable. “The course will invest in individuals so they can overcome obstacles and serve our nation. The course will allow recruits who meet all other qualifications for enlistment, a path to service. The young men and women who will personally participate in this pilot have the desire to Strengthen themselves and want to honorably serve their country.”

The 90-day program will have two tracks, one focused on fitness and the other on academics. Every three weeks soldiers will have an opportunity to matriculate into basic training. The pilot program will be held at Ft. Jackson in Columbia, South Carolina and then expand if necessary.

Recruits taken into the course will enlisted through a delayed training code. The course will take people who are up to 6% higher in body fat than the Army standards. Current requirements state that soldiers between 21 and 27 must not exceed 22% body fat for males and 32% body fat for females.

The program will aim to reduce body fat healthfully by 1% to 2% per month.

The academic track uses remedial classes and tutors to get recruits up to the standards of the Armed Forces Qualification Test.

Each component has a training schedule that includes classroom work, fitness, study hall, meetings with dieticians and military education.

Recruits do who not make it to basic training will be given a week of training on job hunting skills and will be able to apply again in six months.

This isn’t the first time the Army has relied on prep courses. In 2008, the service implemented a prep school focused on fitness that brought in more than 2,700 soldiers and boasted a 95% graduation rate.

The Army estimates the course will cost about $4 million in 2022.

Army officials told Congress last week that in a couple of years the active duty force could atrophy by 8.5% because of the lack of recruits. As of the end of May, the Army is 4.3% below its Congressionally-authorized levels for 2022.

The service said it would cut its 2023 end strength from 485,000 to 473,000 because of issues bringing in talent. Gen. Joseph Martin, the Army’s vice chief of staff, said that number is now between 445,000 and 455,000.

“We’re going to mission ourselves for 455,000 if we can achieve it — the question is whether or not we can achieve it,” Martin told the House Armed Services Committee. “What we think is going on right now is we’ve got unprecedented challenges with both a post COVID-19 environment and labor market, but also competition with private companies that have changed their incentives over time. We’ve also seen a decreasing propensity and requisite qualifications to serve.”

Currently, only about 23% of 17- to 24-year-olds have the physical and academic qualifications to join the military without a waiver. Out of that pool a dwindling number are interested in serving.

A July 20 memo signed by the Army secretary and chief of staff outlined three areas hindering young people from serving.

Those were a knowledge gap, where the Army’s story is not reaching enough people, an identity gap where recruits can’t see themselves in Army life and culture and a trust gap, where younger Americans are losing confidence in the nation’s institutions.

The memo outlines near- and long-term initiatives the Army will take to bring in more recruits. Some of those include extending 420 of the Army’s best recruiters across the nation to increase potential recruits and increasing funding for targeted enlistment bonuses up to $50,000. The Army is also enticing recruits with quick-ship bonuses for those willing to get to work in 45 days. The service is establishing six regional marketing offices and implementing a revised tattoo policy.

In the long-term, the Army will conduct a comprehensive review of the Army accessions enterprise, better incentivize recruiter productivity and apply new technologies to recruiting operations.

The Army says it will launch a full brand refresh to connect the opportunities and benefits of service to what young people want and work with local communities to encourage service.

Killexams : Amazon Adds to Smart Home Appliances Collection

Amazon is continuing to add to its collection of smart home appliances. With voice assistant Alexa, the Astro Robot and Ring security cameras already in its collection, the tech giant announced it agreed to acquire iRobot for around $1.7 billion.

Why would Amazon acquire another household robot company if it already had the Astro Robot in its collection? After being unveiled for $1,000 last year, the Astro Robot can only be acquired by invitation. Amazon is likely wanting to reach out toward a bigger audience to connect more with consumer and homes, and iRobot products are more readily available in various retail stores.

iRobot, known for its innovative home robots, the Roomba robot vacuum and the Braava family of mopping robots, has 30 years of robotics expertise and innovation. The company has continued to innovate with every product generation, solving problems to help provide customers valuable time back in their day.

“We know that saving time matters, and chores take precious time that can be better spent doing something that customers love,” said Dave Limp, senior vice president of Amazon Devices. Limp also praised the iRobot team for the ability to reinvent how people clean with products that are “incredibly practical and inventive.”

iRobot was already utilizing AWS the past few years to ensure its growth and address opportunities within its consumer business and the connected home. A new Roomba would connect to AWS IoT Core, a managed cloud service that enables billions of connected devices to interact easily and securely with cloud applications and other devices. iRobot’s backend IoT solution also uses AWS Lambda, Amazon API Gateway and Amazon DynamoDB.

“Amazon shares our passion for building thoughtful innovations that empower people to do more at home, and I cannot think of a better place for our team to continue our mission,” said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot.

Amazon will acquire iRobot for $61 per share in an all-cash transaction. Completion of the transaction is subject to customary closing conditions, including approval by iRobot’s shareholders and regulatory approvals. On completion, Colin Angle will remain as CEO of iRobot.

Killexams : New Class Teaches Soldiers Innovation Skills

BMNT Inc., NC State partner for Innovation Project Leaders course

PALO ALTO, Calif., Aug. 4, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- BMNT Inc. and North Carolina State University will offer a series of training courses that teach members of the military community to apply lean innovation and entrepreneurship techniques to address national security and defense problems.

The series will offer both self-paced and instructor-led courses of varying lengths. Participants in the Innovation Project Leaders class will learn skills such as value proposition mapping and minimum viable product experiments. The class is one in BMNT's series of Hacking for X (H4X™) courses and is based on the curriculum for the national Hacking for Defense® program, which teaches students at 50+ universities to solve critical national security challenges.

"This partnership brings us the ability to scale from training individual innovators to creating a lasting culture across the armed services," says Bull Holland, who taught a version of the course at NC State, as well as for the U.S. Army's 82nd and 101st Airborne Divisions; and dircts BMNT's H4X training series. "Students in this first course will learn how to apply rapid experimentation techniques perfected over time by numerous innovative startups to the daily defense challenges they face in the field."

Sponsored by NC State's Office of Research and Innovation (ORI) National Security Initiatives and BMNT, the course will focus on filling a critical missing skill in the capabilities development process – defining evidence-based product features. BMNT and ORI will also partner with NC State Entrepreneurship to identify additional opportunities for education, research and development. The National Guard Bureau is providing funding for guardsmen to take the course.

"Military leaders have been asking service members to learn 'how industry does it,'" Holland says. "The Innovation Project Leaders class is a giant leap toward that goal."

In the class, experts from the Army Research Laboratory, tech companies, universities and the capabilities development community will work with soldiers to develop solutions to challenges ranging from modernizing infantry mortar systems to improving Special Operations recruiting.  

"NC State proudly offers market-driven continuing education programs for individuals and groups in North Carolina and beyond, so this agreement with BMNT is a great way to support the specific training interests of our military community," says Alyson Wilson, NC State's associate vice chancellor for national security and special research initiatives.  

For information on the class, contact Bull Holland, [email protected].

Killexams : Trained, Armed and Ready. To Teach Kindergarten.

Shell casings at a three-day gun and active shooter training camp in Rittman, Ohio on June 22, 2022. (Maddie McGarvey/The New York Times)

RITTMAN, Ohio — Mandi, a kindergarten teacher in Ohio, had already done what she could to secure her classroom against a gunman.

She positioned a bookcase by the doorway, in case she needed a barricade. In an orange bucket, she kept district-issued emergency supplies: wasp spray, to aim at an attacker, and a tube sock, to hold a heavy object and hurl at an assailant.

But after 19 children and two teachers were killed in Uvalde, Texas, she felt a growing desperation. Her school is in an older building, with no automatic locks on classroom doors and no police officer on campus.

“We just feel helpless,” she said. “It’s not enough.”

She decided she needed something far more powerful: a 9 mm pistol.

So she signed up for training that would allow her to carry a gun in school. Like others in this article, she asked to be identified by her first name because of school district rules that restrict information about employees carrying firearms.

A decade ago, it was extremely rare for everyday school employees to carry guns. Today, after a seemingly endless series of mass shootings, the strategy has become a leading solution promoted by Republicans and gun rights advocates, who say that allowing teachers, principals and superintendents to be armed gives schools a fighting chance in case of attack.

At least 29 states allow individuals other than police or security officials to carry guns on school grounds, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures. As of 2018, the last year for which statistics were available, federal survey data estimated that 2.6% of public schools had armed faculty.

The count has probably grown.

In Florida, more than 1,300 school staff members serve as armed guardians in 45 school districts, out of 74 in the state, according to state officials. The program was created after a gunman killed 17 people at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland in 2018.

In Texas, at least 402 school districts — about one-third in the state — participate in a program that allows designated people, including school staff members, to be armed, according to the Texas Association of School Boards. Another program, which requires more training, is used by a smaller number of districts. Participation in both is up since 2018.

And in the weeks after the Uvalde shooting, lawmakers in Ohio made it easier for teachers and other school employees to carry guns.

The strategy is fiercely opposed by Democrats, police groups, teachers unions and gun control advocates, who say that concealed-carry programs in schools — far from solving the problem — will only create more risk. Past polling has shown that the vast majority of teachers do not want to be armed.

The law in Ohio has been especially contentious because it requires no more than 24 hours of training, along with eight hours of recertification annually.

Studies on school employees carrying guns have been limited, and research so far has found little evidence that it is effective. There is also little evidence that school resource officers are broadly effective at preventing school shootings, which are statistically rare.

Yet arming school employees is finding appeal — slight majorities among parents and adults in accurate polls.

Of the five deadliest school shootings on record, four — in Newtown, Connecticut; Uvalde; Parkland; and Santa Fe, Texas — have happened in the past 10 years.

It was this possibility that brought Mandi and seven other educators to a gun range tucked amid the hayfields and farm roads of Rittman, in northeast Ohio.

Over the course of three days, Mandi practiced shooting, tying a tourniquet and responding to fast-paced active-shooter drills. Her presence on the range, firing her pistol under the blazing sun, cut a contrast to the classroom, where she dances to counting songs with 5-year-olds, dollops out shaving cream for sensory activities, and wallpapers her classroom with student artwork.

Mandi, in her 40s, arrived at the training with nervous anticipation. She had been a teacher for a dozen years and has children of her own. She wanted to be sure she could carry her gun safely around students. “I get hugs all day long,” she said.

And then there was the prospect of confronting an genuine gunman. Could three days of training prepare her for the unthinkable?

Mandi and the other educators had come from Ohio and as far as Oklahoma for a 26-hour course by FASTER Saves Lives, a leading gun-training program for school employees. It is run by the Buckeye Firearms Foundation, a Second Amendment organization that works alongside a major gun lobbying group in Ohio. The lobbying group, the Buckeye Firearms Association, supported the new state law for school employees.

Over the past decade, the foundation estimates it has spent more than $1 million training at least 2,600 educators.

Its approach aligns closely with an argument that has become a hallmark of the National Rifle Association and the gun lobby: “The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.”

In this view, teachers are the ultimate “good guys.”

“We trust them with our kids every day,” said Jim Irvine, an airline pilot and a longtime advocate for gun rights who is president of the Buckeye Firearms Foundation and volunteers as a director with FASTER.

Their philosophy is that saving lives during school shootings is a matter of speed and that schools cannot afford to wait for the police.

At Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown in 2012, the first 911 call was made after about five minutes, and the first officers arrived at the school less than four minutes later. Still, 20 children and six adults were killed. In Parkland, the gunman killed 17 people in just under six minutes.

Even in Uvalde, where the police have been criticized for waiting on site for more than an hour, the gunman is believed to have fired more than 100 rounds within the first three minutes, according to a state report.

“Time is all that matters,” Irvine said. “It’s that simple.”

In Mandi’s school district, the superintendent said candidates must be approved by the school board. In addition to going through the FASTER training, they must meet annually with the sheriff’s department and may be removed if their skills are not up to par.

At the FASTER program, much of the training focused on firearm proficiency. The group practiced shooting for hours — up close and far away, right-handed and left-handed, small circular targets and life-size human silhouettes.

Instructors offered safety and technical critiques, timed individuals’ shots, and urged teachers and administrators to be assertive.

By the end of the program, Mandi and her classmates had enough training to carry a gun in school under the new Ohio law. They are part of a growing and somewhat experimental stealth force in schools.

The outcome is far from known.

Although there have been anecdotes of armed citizens intervening in public shootings, such as the accurate case at an Indiana mall, “that is an anomaly,” said Jaclyn Schildkraut, an associate professor of criminal justice at the State University of New York at Oswego, who studies mass shootings.

Most mass shootings end when a gunman is shot or subdued by police, dies by suicide or leaves the scene.

For Mandi, the decision to be armed in the classroom seemed like a better solution than wasp spray or a tube sock.

To keep up her training, she goes to the gun range each week, she said.

And although she acknowledged that other important policies could help prevent school shootings, she did not feel she could afford to wait for change.

“We’ve got to help the kids right now,” she said.
