Join the fight against dental fluorosis

SEYMOUR JOHNSON AIR FORCE BASE, N.C. - We have all been taught about the benefits of fluoride for developing teeth, but what happens when infants get too much? The American Dental Association found an answer to this question.

The good news is most children get the recommended amount of fluoride in their diet. Fluoride, when absorbed in the body while teeth are developing from before birth to 8 years old, is very beneficial to tooth development, however too much fluoride can lead to dental fluorosis. Dental fluorosis comes in several forms. It ranges from the mild form of white spots that are barely noticeable or not noticeable at all to severe fluorosis, where the teeth become pitted and form brown and black stains.

Air Force officials announce civilian hiring control

This post was originally published by Seymour Johnson AFB - Seymour Johnson Headlines

May 24, 2011 in North Carolina, Seymour Johnson Air Force Base by clevine

Air Force leaders announced that hiring controls were instituted May 9 to reduce projected growth of the civilian workforce.

The Air Force-wide efforts to stem the civilian personnel growth are a result of the Secretary of Defense's efficiency initiatives to maintain civilian manning at fiscal year 2010 levels.

Hiring controls will allow the Air Force to take a targeted approach to meet the mandated manning levels.

Effective immediately, the service will hire one person for every two new vacancies in areas affected by hiring controls (largely O&M funded positions). This doesn't apply to current hiring actions when a job selection has already been made; however all other hiring actions may only be filled at a 1:2 ratio as new vacancies occur.

"Remember to turn off the lights when you leave!" For some, this simple reminder is an easy habit to develop. For others, this incessant reminder rings of reprimands from parents during childhood or teenage years. While it can be very easy to remember to conserve electricity when paying for the power at home, often personnel allow lights to stay on in the workplace when spaces are unoccupied. In an effort to use technological advances to ease the financial burden and supplement the efforts of base personnel, the 4th Civil Engineer Squadron is installing occupancy sensors in a number of buildings on base.
