[Hawaii news on the go–LISTEN to KHON 2GO weekday mornings at 7:30 a.m.] The study is a collaboration between Queen’s Medical Health Center and Maui based non-profit organization Assistance Dogs of Hawaii . They are part of a larger study with Medical Detection Dogs UK, and the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. The organization’s executive director Maureen Maurer said four dogs are participating in the study and will be trained through positive reinforcement. The non-profit organization has participated in past studies where dogs have been trained to detect certain bacteria. “They get treats when they find the target scent,” Maurer said. “So we make it really positive and enjoyable for them. And we love just seeing the dogs do what they were born to do, you know, to use their nose to locate items.” In addition to the dogs, researchers are asking for human volunteers in Hawaii. The study requires hundreds of positive and negative samples of sweat for the dogs to detect the scent of COVID. The Queen’s Health System Chief Physician Executive Dr. Whitney Limm said the virus is not transmitted through sweat, ideally, they want people who recently tested positive for the virus to contact them .
side, this has sparked efforts to develop new operational concepts and field new capabilities to meet the challenges of 21st century warfare. Our allies are moving out as well. On July 1, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the most significant changes in the Australian Defence Force in decades, including major shifts in military posture and capabilities. The Japanese government is similarly moving forward with procuring new capabilities and developing new concepts. To meet today’s challenges and prepare for those of the future, the U.S. needs to work with its allies to establish read this post here a training and experimentation network across the Indo-Pacific region. An Indo-Pacific training and experimentation network will need to take account of the features of modern warfare. First, because operations will increasingly take place over long ranges, training and experimentation will similarly need to encompass large geographic distances. Second, since operations are increasingly multidomain, a realistic training and experimentation environment will need to combine live, virtual and constructive operations across domains. Third, efforts to operate across the electromagnetic spectrum, or EMS, in the face of capable adversaries will be key to U.S. and allied operational effectiveness.
