Narran River, a watercourse of the Barwon catchment within the Murray–Darling basin, is located in the Southern Downs district of Queensland and Orana district of New South Wales, Australia.
The rivers rises south west of Dirranbandi, as a branch of the Balonne River in Queensland, and flows generally to the south and south-west, before reaching its mouth with Narran Lake, between Brewarrina and Walgett in New South Wales; descending 61 metres (200 ft) over its 299 kilometres (186 mi) course.[2]
In March 2010 the Narran River flooded the Angledool Lake at Angledool and then spilled into Weetalabah Creek that cross the Castlereagh Highway, thus filling the Coocoran Lake, near Lightning Ridge.[3]

Band history[edit]
The group was formed in 1976 at Kentucky State University by trumpeter Reggie Calloway, vocalist Belinda Lipscomb, guitarist/drummer/vocalist Melvin Gentry, bassist Kenneth Gant, multi-instrumentalist Bill Simmons, keyboard player/vocalist Bo Watson and guitarist/keyboardist Jeff Cooper, as a self-contained group. They would later add non-KSU student trombonist Vincent Calloway (Reginald’s younger brother). A 1978 New York City showcase inspired SOLAR Records chief Dick Griffey to sign the group. They released their debut album The Beginning (1980) with some guest studio musicians. In 1981 their second album, released on Solar Records, Standing Together, reached position #54 on the U.S. R&B chart. In 1982 they released a third album, Victory.
Using elected band leader Reggie Calloway’s production skills, Midnight Star hit the U.S. R&B chart with early singles “Hot Spot” and “I’ve Been Watching You”. Drummer Bobby Lovelace joined the group in late 1982, freeing Gentry to sing and play guitar exclusively. Their fourth album, No Parking on the Dance Floor, was released in 1983, and its first single, “Freak-A-Zoid”, went to number two on the U.S. Black Singles chart. Other singles from the album included “Wet My Whistle”, and the title track. These singles, along with the hit album tracks “Slow Jam” (co-written by Kenneth “Babyface” Edmonds) and “Electricity” led the album to double platinum status. Their next album, Planetary Invasion also went plati

Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training

For other uses of the word Carat, see Carat.
The Cooperation Afloat Readiness and Training (Exercise CARAT) is a series of annual bilateral military exercises conducted by United States Pacific Fleet with several member nations of ASEAN in Southeast Asia. Currently, the navies of Bangladesh, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and Thailand participate.[1] Objectives of CARAT include enhancing regional cooperation; building friendships, and strengthening professional skills.[2] In 2010, Cambodia and Bangladesh became the first CARAT participants to join the exercise since 1995.[3]

CARAT Cambodia 2011 (Oct. 20, 2011)

CARAT Brunei 2011 (Oct. 5, 2011)

The objective of CARAT 2011 was to enhance regional naval cooperation by strengthening the professional skills of its participants.[4] Task Force 73 served as the U.S. Navy executive agent for the CARAT 2011 exercises.[5]
CARAT Bangladesh[edit]
The U.S. Navy’s guided-missile destroyer Kidd joined the guided-missile frigate Ford, the mine counter-measures ship Defender, and the salvage ship Safeguard participated in the first-ever CARAT Bangladesh bilateral exercises (pictured) which began on 18 September 2011 at the Bangladesh naval base at Issa Khan.[5] Task Force 73 commander (CTF-73) Rear Admiral Tom Carney noted:

The fact that CARAT attracts navies from the region is a particularly important point. I look at 2011 as the first of many successful years of engagement between the U.S. and Bangladesh Navies.[5]

CARAT Bangladesh combined training events ashore and at sea, with shore events focused on dive training, riverine warfare, ship boarding training, and medical and community service projects. At-sea training operations included helicopter operations, shipboard communications and maneuvering drills, surface gunnery exercises. and tactical freeplay events.[5]
CARAT Cambodia[edit]
The U.S. destroyer Kidd and salvage ship Safeguard subsequently participated in the 2nd annual CARAT Cambodia bilateral exercise which began on 20 October 2011 with opening ceremonies in Sihanoukville (pictured).[6] TF-73 commander Admiral Carney (pictured) added:

Last year marked an important step forward in the relationships between the U.S. and Cambodian Navies.
