Our Team Delivers Results
"Throughout my career, I have had the privilege of working with some phenomenal people who are the very best at what they do. While they all do different things, what they do, they do exceptionally well. So, what if you task organized these people around a client’s unique needs to create a bespoke solution to their problems? That is the idea behind Eclipse Consulting. At Eclipse we build a team for you that is guaranteed to deliver results. Unlike with large consulting firms, with us, you get the team we show you, not the practice squad. Where others cite experts, and thought leaders, at Eclipse the experts and thought leaders are on your team and you have direct access to them. Amenable, approachable, creative, nimble, responsive – at Eclipse these are not just words. This is our DNA." - John Suttle

Nobody doubts that planes resembling World War II-vintage Thunderbolts are cheaper to operate than modern jet fighters. The reason armed forces around the world turned to jets two generations ago was because every aspect of their operational performance is superior to that of turboprops. If the Air Force had come up with the idea of using warmed-over Thunderbolts to fight rag-tag jihadists before 9-11, it might have looked smart. Now it just looks out of touch with reality. Here are five reasons why.
The nuclear energy industry has not fared well in popular culture of late, but there are some facets of what it does that are genuinely indispensable. Nuclear propulsion provides Navy aircraft carriers and submarines with unlimited range. Nuclear power plants remain a crucial part of the electric grid. And nuclear propulsion of spacecraft may be the safest, most affordable way that NASA can put U.S. astronauts on Mars.
The last plant in the U.S. that can build tanks is a sad symbol of America's industrial decline. Located in Lima, Ohio, midway between Dayton and Toledo, it currently produces only one M1A2 Abrams tank per month. During the Reagan years, it turned out 60 per month. Another 60 were built each month at the Detroit Arsenal Tank Plant, but that site was closed during the Clinton years. So now there is only Lima, assembling a mere dozen tanks per year.
The United States did not have a large defense industry for most of its history. Because threats were episodic rather than continuous, the traditional practice was to mobilize the commercial economy for war production when danger arose, and then demobilize when it had passed.
One unique feature of recent local minimum wage battles is the focus on franchise businesses.
In Seattle, for instance, a minimum wage of $15 took effect in 2015 with multiple phase-in paths that depend on the business size (as measured by number of employees), with smaller businesses being granted more time to adapt to the mandate. Under the Seattle law, an independent, locally-owned franchise business is treated like the larger corporate entity from which the franchise business gets its brand-name and trademark.
Shakespeare warns us in Julius Caesar that the bad things men do outlive them, whereas "the good is oft interred with their bones." The same thing seems to be true of presidencies: when an administration makes mistakes, the consequences can live on for decades.
When the Army and Air Force split to become separate military services after World War Two, the Air Force got almost all of the fixed-wing aircraft, and the Army got almost all of the helicopters. Today, 70 years later, the U.S. Army is the biggest operator of helicopters in the world, and every facet of its approach to conducting land warfare is shaped by the availability of vertical-lift assets.
Without goals, whether personal or professional, it is easy to get off track. Goals provide a clear motivation and ideal end result. You must figure out exactly what you want in order to come up with a plan to achieve it.
Politicians of both parties frequently laud the prowess of America's warfighters. However, the reality is that the U.S. military has been gradually losing its edge over other countries in training and technology for many years.
Nuclear weapons are the worst military threat that America faces. A single 500-kiloton warhead exploded over a major U.S. city would destroy or heavily damage all buildings to a radius of three miles, and cause widespread fires to a radius of six miles.
