White House Arctic Science Ministerial

White House Arctic Science Ministerial
Summary:
On September 28, 2016, science ministers from across the globe will gather in Washington, DC, for the first-ever White House Arctic Science Ministerial.

Understanding the rapid changes that are affecting the Arctic—as well as the impacts of these changes on the rest of the world—requires a cooperative, global approach based on research partnerships involving participants from Arctic and non-Arctic nations, including, of course, the people who call the Arctic home. That’s why, on September 28, 2016—just after the one-year anniversary of President Obama’s historic trip to Alaska—the Administration will host the first-ever Arctic Science Ministerial.

The White House Arctic Science Ministerial will bring together ministers of science, chief science advisors, and other high-level officials from countries around the world, as well as representatives from indigenous groups, to expand joint collaborations focused on Arctic science, research, observations, monitoring, and data-sharing. The goals of the event are to advance promising, near-term science initiatives and create a context for increased international scientific collaboration on the Arctic over the longer term.

Specifically, the Ministerial will focus on four key themes:

  1. Arctic Science Challenges and their Regional and Global Implications
  2. Strengthening and Integrating Arctic Observations and Data Sharing
  3. Applying Expanded Scientific Understanding of the Arctic to Build Regional Resilience and Shape Global Responses
  4. Arctic Science as a Vehicle for STEM Education and Citizen Empowerment

  3. White House advisory: President plans trip to Fort Lee on Sept. 28

    Staff Reports Sep 22, 2016 militarynews

    President Barack Obama will visit Fort Lee Wednesday to meet with service members, veterans and other representatives of the military community and thank them for their service to the nation. He also will participate in a recorded CNN Town Hall meeting with news anchor Jake Tapper, which will air nationally that evening.

    Opportunities to meet the president while he’s here will be extremely limited. The town hall participants are being selected by CNN with assistance from Fort Lee. Those individuals are receiving a direct invitation to the event. The town hall is not open to others in the military community or the general public.

    Command representatives are working with the White House to determine who may be allowed to participate in other parts of the visit. Details of the president’s itinerary also are being controlled for security purposes. If additional information becomes available early next week, it will be announced through directorate and military organization chains of command.

    Remarks by the President Honoring the 2015 NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion

    East Room

    11:18 A.M. EDT

    THE PRESIDENT: Please have a seat — it’s not that formal around here. (Laughter.) How you doing? Well, welcome to the White House, everybody. And give it up for NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Champion, Kyle Busch! (Applause.)

    We also are happy to welcome here Kyle’s wonderful wife, Samantha, who I just learned is from the Chicago area so she and I, we’ve got a little bond going here. (Laughter.) We’ve got some members of Congress here who are big NASCAR fans. We’ve got NASCAR CEO Brian France and his beautiful family, who — they keep on growing. (Laughter.) And Dave Alpern, President of Joe Gibbs Racing; and Crew Chief, Adam Stevens. Give them all a big round of applause. (Applause.)

    Now, as you may be aware, I host a lot of teams from other sports — they all call themselves national champions or world champions. But I’ve got to hand it to the Number 18 Team, who have given themselves the title of “Galaxy Champs.” (Laughter.) That’s a first. And I’ve put in a call to NASA to check to see whether this is, in fact, accurate. (Laughter.)

    Kyle, I hear your ride is outside. Most years when NASCAR comes to town, I make a joke about looking at the car full of longing and feeling kind of wistful, and trying to get Secret Service to let me take a spin. (Laughter.) But this year’s different. In a few months, I can actually do anything I want. (Laughter.) So Kyle, we’re going to talk. (Laughter.)

    MR. BUSCH: You got it.

    Remarks by the President to Troops

    U.S. Air Force Transportation School Hi-Bay at Fort Lee
    Fort Lee, Virginia

    4:12 P.M. EDT

    THE PRESIDENT: Hello, everybody! Hello, Fort Lee! (Applause.) Well, it is wonderful to see all of you. (Applause.) Thank you.

    SERVICEMEMBER: Thank you!

    THE PRESIDENT: Thank you! (Applause.) I want to thank your outstanding leadership team for welcoming me, including Major General Darrell Williams. (Applause.) Lieutenant General Wendy Masiello. (Applause.) Colonel Adam Butler. (Applause.) And Command Sergeant Major Nathaniel Bartee. (Applause.)

    I know this is the proud home of the Army’s Combined Arms Support Command. (Applause.) But I know we’ve got other services represented here. Navy. (Applause.) Marines. (Applause.) Air Force. (Applause.) We’ve got our outstanding DOD civilians in the house. (Applause.) And then, of course, we’ve got a whole lot of Army. (Applause.)

    Now, I’m not here to give a big speech.

    SERVICEMEMBER: (Inaudible.)

    THE PRESIDENT: No, no. (Laughter.) The main thing I wanted to do was just come by, shake some hands. As you know, I had a town hall with CNN and some of our extraordinary troops, our veterans, our military families. We had an important discussion about how our nation has to uphold its obligations to you and your families. You serve us with such distinction every single day, I want to make sure we’re doing right by you. And so you can watch it tonight on CNN or you can watch whatever else is on. (Laughter and applause.)

    But you guys showed extraordinary hospitality and made our visit a success, so I just want to say thank you. (Applause.)

    You know, here at this post, you are part of a tradition of service that stretches back nearly 100 years. Doughboys marched off to World War I from this facility. You trained our soldiers for World War II, Korea, Vietnam, every conflict since. So as you prepare to celebrate your centennial next year — (applause) — I’m just going to jump the gun and go ahead and say, Fort Lee, happy 100th birthday. (Applause.)
