Navy Board Recommends Discharging Former Astronaut Lisa Nowak after Bizarre Incident

A Naval board recommends discharging former astronaut Lisa Nowak after a bizarre 2007 incident where she confronted a rival lover at the Orlando International Airport.  Remember her? She was the nutjob who drove from Houston to Orlando, nonstop, to confront Colleen Shipman who had begun dating Lisa Nowak’s love interest, spaceshuttle pilot Bill Oefelein. She was wearing a wig and a trenchcoat and attacked shipman with pepperspray.

However, she’s not going to be dishonorably discharged – she’s going to be discharged “other than honorable” which means she will get a pension as a commander rather than a captain. She won’t however, be able to receive benefits under the GI bill.

Nowak was sentenced to one year probation after pleading guilty to third-degree felony burglary and misdemeanor battery.

Should she have received harsher treatment, or was this understandable.  What do you think would have happened if Lisa Nowak would have been a man who did the same thing.

    2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

      Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

The theory is that if a little something is that often great, next there should be something in the factor that should bring the alternative effect.

The more I look at it the more I am certain it does not react like a real solid flesh cancer. In the event mesothelioma is really a rogue viral infection, so there is the possibility of developing a vaccine in addition to offering vaccination for asbestos subjected people who are really at high risk with developing potential asbestos relevant malignancies. Thanks for sharing your ideas about this important health issue.
