Load HEAT- Eva Mendes

Eva may not be an A-list actress, but she’s had a strong career, and she’s been kind enough to be photographed a lot.

If you were a teenage boy in the 80s or early 90s, you had a crush on this week’s hottie. Lori Loughlin has always had that “girl next door” charm coupled with wholesome good looks and just a hint of sexiness.

I have to confess, I’ve heard quite a few people discuss this week’s hottie, but I am pretty sure I’ve never actually seen her in anything.

Rhona Mitra has been in a ton of stuff, from American television to a strong resume in Sci-Fi genre movies. Plus, she used to be the model for Lara Croft.

The important thing, though, is that she’s hawt.

This week’s hottie is a two-time Academy Award winner. Having said that, I haven’t seen either of the movies that Hilary Swank won Oscars for. In fact, I’ve only seen her in three things- The Next Karate Kid (I’m fairly certain I’m the only person on earth that actually likes that movie), Insomnia (which I’d forgotten I’d seen her in) and, of course, the bit part she played in the movie version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

We had a couple good suggestions from our readers last week for the 100th edition of Load HEAT. One of them was for Elizabeth Banks.

Who? Never heard of her. So a quick search of IMDB and wiki shows that I’ve seen her a gazillion times, and always liked her. She just never stayed on my personal radar. Well, she’s showing up now.

Load HEAT- 100th Edition

Wow. We’ve been doing this a while I guess. And I’m sorry that regular posting has dropped off so much. But then again, most of you guys just come for the chicks.

This week, we were looking to do a “best of” and were going through the archives. We were frankly amazed to learn we’d never featured this hottie. We all grew up with her, and have fond memories of her youth. But let’s face it, she’s blossomed into a beautiful woman.

Without further ado, the 100th edition of Load HEAT brings you Alyssa Milano.

We’re goin’ old school this week. This hottie has been around a long time, but she’s still got it goin’ on. You remember her from Fatal Attraction and probably from Patriot Games. Anne Archer. By the way, her birthday is tomorrow. Happy 63rd!

Load HEAT- day late edition

I was over at Warming Glow (doing research, honest!) and came across this bit of wit:

I can’t talk about “Gossip Girl” without bringing up Blake Lively. I hope God took the day off after making her, because she is FANTASTIC. I would totally keep her in a well and wear her skin — and not in a creepy way. I’m just a hugely enthusiastic fan of her work. Not enough to watch “Gossip Girl,” though. A man has to have limits.

What can I say, beyond that I agree wholeheartedly…

Phone home…

I finally broke down last year and bought a cell phone. Not that there’s anyone I really want to talk to. I just need it in case my car breaks down.

But lots of folks these days have smart phones of various kinds. And they’ve found them to be extremely useful. The ability to add virtually any kind of app imaginable has been a boon almost on a plane with the original revolution in personal computing.

And not surprisingly, a lot of smart GIs are coming up with ways to use their smart phones to help them do their jobs. And industry is starting to pay attention:

“Cell phones are tired of waiting for the troops to come home and are going to war themselves. Tech startup Berico Tailored Systems, Lockheed Martin and apparently an army of Slashdot users are currently making tactical 3G cellular networks and smartphone applications for the military to use overseas.

The most sophisticated communication system I worked with in the Army was the PRC-77/VRC-64 radio with the KY-57 encryption system. It was on a technological par with a pair of tin cans and some string.

The ability to communicate with both voice and data would be a big help all by itself. Add in the multitude of computational tasks a smart phone with the appropriate apps could do, and you are talking about a real weapon.

Cell phones. They aren’t just for setting off IEDs anymore.

Load HEAT goes up a little early since we’re gonna be having access problems soon.

We aren’t huge fans of country music. We actually used to listen to it quite a bit though, especially when we lived in Germany. Why? Because our girlfriend was a huge country music fan. If she wants to two-step, I want to two-step.

And let’s face it, country music has some awfully pretty ladies. One of the first country stars to really trade on her wholesome good looks and cross over to popular music was Faith Hill.

Truth be told, I’ve never seen Weeds. But even I have heard of its star, Mary Louise Parker.

I like fit women. Not enough to work out in a vain attempt to attract one, mind you. But I like ‘em.

And as our recent discovery of a spy ring has shown us, many of the former Soviet Union’s wimmens are not only fit, but cute as a button as well.

This week’s Hottie, Maria Sharapova, may not be a spy, but I’m pretty sure she could convince me to collaborate on some undercover work…

I don’t watch American Idol, but even I know who the winner of the first series was- Kelly Clarkson.

I can listen to her music, and I like that she’s not some “singer” manufactured by producers just because she’s pretty. She’s pretty, but not some rail thin waif that someone grafted a music career onto.

Load HEAT- Special Guest Edition

We’ve been fortunate enough to make several friends around the web, one of whom is something of a show-off. Skylia Ember is not just a sweetheart, she’s a HAWT sweetheart.

Sorry we’re late. We’ve had almost no internet access, so finding pics is problematical.  Still, here’s a short stack of one of my favorite quirky chicks, Pauley Perrette.

How many nukes are enough?

The President has just released the numbers in our current inventory of nuclear weapons, 5,113. And Obama is dedicated to reducing this number. There’s even an Op-Ed in the NYT urging an inventory of 311 warheads.

Innocent Bystanders has a good discussion going about this. What do you think?

I’ve got to make a confession.

I’ve never seen Snakes on a Plane. I know, it is shameful, but I just never got around to it. Of course, if I’d know that Julianna Margulies was in it, I’m sure I would have gotten around to it sooner.

I’m sure you remember Julianna from ER and you may have seen her on her new show, The Good Wife.

Coasties go SPECWAR

We don’t show a lot of love for the Coast Guard here. We feel kinda bad about that, because if we hadn’t joined the Army, we would have joined the Coasties. They may not be the most gung-ho uniformed service around, but they sure are among the hardest working.

Back in 2008, the Coasties and the Navy signed an agreement to allow small numbers of Coast Guardsmen to attend the Navy’s SEAL training, and integrate with the active SEAL teams. After a period of time, they would return to the Coast Guard and share their knowledge and skills.

Today, that agreement has begun to bear fruit.

Two Coast Guard officers became the first in their service to earn SEAL tridents Friday, according to Navy and Coast Guard officials. Another three are in the pipeline.

They will be the first uniformed personnel ever assigned to an operational SEAL team while a member of another branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.

Why is this important? In today’s COIN world, we’ve seen a lot of military operations move to a more law-enforcement orientation in terms of their operations overseas. And the Coast Guard is the nation’s primary maritime law-enforcement agency. This partnership can potentially give the SEALs greater flexibility in countering piracy and terrorism, and allow  them to learn from the Coasties some of the less kinetic skills they have in their repertoire. And it will give the Coasties a better understanding of the challenges facing special operators as well as learning tactics, techniques and procedures used on the special warfare side.

Here’s a bit of free advice…

If you run a property management company, check your CCRs to make sure there isn’t a stupid rule against flying the American flag. Sure, you may have a legal leg to stand on, but you’ll only end up pissing off the entire community.

There are roughly 24 million veterans in America today. And there’s another hundred million or so folks that think flying the American flag is generally a good thing. Why borrow trouble?

Roundup

Two good posts at Ace’s, one by Dave in Texas, and one by DrewM.

Via War News Updates- Another article in the inadequacy of the M4 carbine in Afghanistan.

The U.S. military’s workhorse rifle — used in battle for the last 40 years — is proving less effective in Afghanistan against the Taliban’s more primitive but longer range weapons.

As a result, the U.S. is reevaluating the performance of its standard M-4 rifle and considering a switch to weapons that fire a larger round largely discarded in the 1960s.

The M-4 is an updated version of the M-16, which was designed for close quarters combat in Vietnam. It worked well in Iraq, where much of the fighting was in cities such as Baghdad, Ramadi and Fallujah.

But a U.S. Army study found that the 5.56 mm bullets fired from M-4s don’t retain enough velocity at distances greater than 1,000 feet (300 meters) to kill an adversary. In hilly regions of Afghanistan, NATO and insurgent forces are often 2,000 to 2,500 feet (600-800 meters) apart.

Also at WNU, read his comment on nuclear proliferation and insecurity.

Theo Spark always manages to find something interesting:

Lex is looking at the challenges facing his alma mater and the other service academies.

Chris Rawley at Information Dissemination has an interesting bit on Distributed Warfare. I think before he dives headlong into support of it, he should realize that for all the talk about it in the Army, there’s a real challenge in making it happen. Few leaders in any organization are willing to let their subordinates have the freedom he’s talking about, and the Navy is probably worse off than the Army. They talk a good game, but with the increase in communications ability, we’ve seen the temptation of the boss to become “the Great Squad Leader in the Sky” often overwhelm the stated doctrine.

Eric Palmer posts a snippet showing the future of the Chinese Air Force  or PLAAF (People’s Liberation Army Air Force).

I can’t watch this. Maybe you can.
