Live fire from ships, submarines and aircraft participating in the Rim of the Pacific Exercise (RIMPAC) 2014 sank the decommissioned USS Tuscaloosa (LST 1187) at about 12:15 p.m., July 14, in waters 15,000 feet deep, 57 nautical miles northwest of Kauai. Units from Brunei, Canada, Japan and the United States participated in the sinking exercise (SINKEX), which provided them the opportunity to gain proficiency in tactics, targeting and live firing against a surface target at sea.

Inspired by classic crystal drops on traditional chandeliers, the Lustra pendant light from Tech Lighting utilizes pure optic crystal hand-cut to create a dual faceted light fixture whose simplicity equals its elegance.
