The second Electra (AK-21) was launched 18 November 1941 as Meteor by Tampa Shipbuilding Co., Tampa, Fla., under a Maritime Commission contract
sponsored by Mrs. C. O. Andrews wife of the Senator from Florida; transferred to the Navy 16 April 1941; and commissioned 17 March 1942, Commander J. J. Hughes in command. She was reclassified AKA-4, 1 February 1943.

After a fast voyage from Norfolk, VA., to Wellington New Zealand, between 10 May and 18 July 1942, to deliver men of the 1st Marines, Electra upon her return trained in the Chesapeake Bay with troops assigned to the initial north African landings. On 23 October she sailed for French Morocco and saw action during the invasion landings off Safi 8 November. Although several of her landing boats were lost under intensive fire from the beach, she unloaded her cargo by the 14th and got underway with wounded soldiers on board. Bound for Fedhala, she was torpedoed on the starboard side. Cole (DD-155) took off all of Electra's crew and passengers except for a ship's salvage party, and with the assistance of several ships, Electra. was beached at Casablanca 2 days later. Her remaining cargo was discharged and her ship's company with the aid of salvage facilities ashore performed a herculean repair job which enabled her to return to Charelston 30 April 1943.

Following an overhaul and permanent repairs, Electra carried out amphibious training in Chesapeake Bay until the end of the year, then sailed from Norfolk 11 December 1943 for the Pacific. She departed Pearl Harbor 23 January 1944 for the invasion of the Marshalls, and during the capture of Kwajalein furnished her boats for the occupation of the small islands north of the atoll, and refueled minecraft and small craft of the invasion force. After discharging part of her cargo she sailed to Eniwetok where she supplied boats and equipment for the initial landings 18 February. After unloading the remainder of her cargo, Electra returned to Pearl Harbor 8 March.

In June 1944 Electra served in the assault landings on Saipan, debarking her troops 15 June and unloading cargo and embarking casualties for return to Pearl Harbor until 26 June. She arrived at Guadalcanal in August to stage for the invasion of the Palaus, and on 15 September took part in the feint assault on Babelthuap Island to divert attention from the main landings on Peleliu. Two days later she was engaged as control boat for the initial assault on Angaur, remaining there to unload cargo until the 23d.

After a brief respite at Manus Electra sortied for the invasion of the Philippines, landing her troops and cargo at Tacloban, Leyte, 20 October 1944, sailing 2 days later for the Palaus. She lifted troops from Guam for support landings on 23 November, then sailed to Hollandia, New Guinea, to prepare for the next invasion. On 9 January 1945 Electra arrived at Lingayen Gulf, Luzon for the initial assault, made under air attack and successfully offloaded her troops and cargo by the 17th She returned to New Guinea briefly to embark Army troops for transfer to support operations at Mindoro, then sailed to Ulithi, arriving 19 February.

On 18 March 1945; Electra arrived off Iwo Jima to embark men of the fighting 5th Marines for transportation to Pearl Harbor, arriving 15 April. The transport
then continued on to the west coast for overhaul. When the war ended Electra was back at Pearl Harbor. She carried occupation troops to Wakayama and Hiro Wan from Pearl Harbor and the Philippines, then embarked returning veterans for the States, arriving at San Francisco 10 November 1945. She was placed out of commission in reserve 19 March 1946, and returned to the Maritime Commission 1 July 1946.

Reacquired from the Maritime Commission 16 October 1951 as a result of the Korean war, Electra was recommissioned 3 May 1952. She operated along the west coast, taking part in amphibious exercises and acting as a submarine target vessel. In June 1953 she loaded cargo at Long Beach for a supply mission in the Arctic, then sailed from Seattle 10 July with TF 9 to arrive at Icy Cape on the 21st. Electra furnished provisions, fuel, and water to other ships in the force, as well as unloading cargo for northern bases. She returned to San Diego 2 September, and except for a supply mission to the Pribilof Islands from 10 July to 7 September 1954, Electra continued training and upkeep along the west coast until placed out of commission in reserve again 13 May 1955.

Electra received six battle stars for World War II service.

Electa- AK-21 - History



Electra, named after the feisty daughter of cattle baron W.T. Waggoner, is located in the western edge of Wichita County. The Waggoners were pioneers in the area when they established their cattle headquarters here in 1878. Their property almost completely surrounded the original townsite. Confusion over the delivery of Waggoner mail and the name Beaver for nearby Beaver Creek led residents in 1902 to circulate a petition changing the name of the city to Electra in honor of Electra Waggoner. The townsite opened in October 1907. In 1911 an oil company leased a tract of land from W.T. and the famous North Texas Oil boom was begun as fortune seekers came to stake their claims.

Today, Electra continues its agricultural and oil impact in North Texas. Farm and ranch land surrounds the town and most every field is punctuated with an oil well. Manufacturing is another strong economic force to the city.

An industrious and enthusiastic city government and school system make Electra an exciting city to live in and raise a family. A progressive hospital offering a plethora of services, a physician clinic, family practitioners, internist and general surgeon assure the best of healthcare services not found in many small cities.

The Chamber of Commerce is extremely active. The annual Electra Goat Barbecue is one of the busiest and most exciting events hosted by the Chamber. There are also the annual homecoming events, semi annual City Wide Garage Sales, Scarecrow Festival, and an annual visit from Santa Claus. Restoration of the historic Grand Theatre built in 1919 is underway as a citywide project.

For over 90 years Electra has been a vibrant community rich in history and ripe in personality and was designated a Main Street City in 1998 and a National Main Street City in 2000.


1950's

Reacquired from the Maritime Commission 16 October 1951 as a result of the Korean war, Electra was recommissioned 3 May 1952. She operated along the West Coast of the United States, taking part in amphibious exercises and acting as a submarine target vessel. In June 1953 she loaded cargo at Long Beach for a supply mission in the Arctic, then sailed from Seattle 10 July with TFى to arrive at Icy Cape on the 21st. Electra furnished provisions, fuel, and water to other ships in the force, as well as unloading cargo for northern bases. She returned to San Diego 2 September, and except for a supply mission to the Pribilof Islands from 10 July to 7 September 1954, Electra continued training and upkeep along the west coast until placed out of commission in reserve again 13 May 1955.


Our History

Our Beginning

Electra was founded in 1998 by current CEO John Landry as a provider of consulting services to the investment management industry. Through this consulting work, John identified a market need for a post-trade automation solution for custodian trade and client notifications, confirms/affirms and settlement instructions.

Electra Settlements became the first of several products the company developed and sold to other investment managers for post-trade processing. With the subsequent creation of solutions for Reconciliation, Data Aggregation, Trade and Settlement Notification, Trade Fail Management, and Client Fee Billing, the company’s solutions are now used by hundreds of asset managers, hedge funds, fund administrators and outsourced service providers across the globe.

Electra Reconciliation was introduced in 1996 as the buy side’s need for more automation in post-trade operations increased. Built from the bottom up from within the buy-side industry and for the institutional investment manager, Electra Reconciliation is a centralized solution for managing all reconciliation processes across the middle and back offices.

In 1999, Electra launched a comprehensive reconciliation data catalog which included multiple data types beyond just standard positions, transactions and cash. This achievement made Electra the only vendor at the time to integrate research data to help expedite the investigations’ process (patented in 2017). Electra coupled its reconciliation data catalog with specific features built for investment management, including NAV, intraday and internal source reconciliation reconstruction of previous month-end cash reconciliation and pending trade break suspension.

Key milestones for Electra Reconciliation:
  • Moved from a proprietary database to SQL in 2005
  • Launched a SaaS version in 2010
  • Released unique workflow technology in 2012 that intelligently integrates cash balances, transaction activity and positions data
  • Was granted a patent for its intelligent integration capability in 2017
  • Launched Electra Managed Services offering for reconciliation in 2017
  • Released a new and improved user Electra Data dashboard in 2019

Soon after the initial launch of Electra Reconciliation, the company introduced Electra Data to automate the aggregation of securities and cash position and transaction data, and further automate the Electra Reconciliation workflow tool. Today, Electra collects more than 3,300 unique, direct data feeds from over 1,300 global custodians, prime brokers, broker/dealers, subadvisors, fund administrators, counterparties and other financial institutions for asset managers to use in their reconciliation, settlement and other post-trade processes.

Electra FailSafe was developed in 2011 as a web-based system that simplifies failed trade management by uniquely identifying pending-unmatched trades and highlighting trades at risk of failing and exposing fail trades. FailSafe later became part of Electra Reconciliations in order to more tightly integrate exception management and fails trade management processes. In 2012, Electra acquired a client fee billing application from Legg Mason. Renamed Electra Billing, the system is an integrated workflow-based client fee billing and revenue management solution that improves the speed and accuracy of invoices, cash flow and client service while reducing risk.

5th Grade Alaska History

My unit of study will be the Alaska Permanent Dividend Fund. I’ve chosen this as a unit of study because it fits into my 5th Grade History curriculum. The dividend is given in October every year to all residents, regardless of age. My 5th grade students each get the dividend, but I doubt many of them understand why they are getting it.

Students will define the Permanent Fund Dividend (what is it?).

Short Essay Assessment Piece

This statement is true, false, or partly true and false? Please respond to this statement, in paragraph form, with specific evidence from our lessons to prove it true, false, or partly true and false.

“The Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend comes from extra revenues from Alaska’s oil and gas reserves. It is a dividend that is given to all Alaskans once each year.”

Students will identify the different landmarks of the Permanent Fund Dividend in Alaska’s History.

Assessment Piece for the Historical Objective

Create a timeline that follows the history of the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD). The student will use all of their reading material that they have used throughout this unit to create the timeline. It will begin with 1976, which is when voters passed a constitutional amendment (Alaska Constitution, Article IX, Section 15) to establish the Permanent Fund (state.ak.us). Their timeline will end with 2009, which is when the Charitable Contribution program, Pick,Click,Give was implemented. This allowed applicants to donate all or part of their dividend to non-profit agencies (state.ak.us). I will have a specific requirement that students must have at least eight additional points on their timeline, for a total of 10 historical points.

Students will explain how the Permanent Fund Dividend impacts Alaska as a state, and its residents.

How the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend Impacts the State of Alaska Assessment Piece

I will create a True/False assessment for this objective. It is important that student understand the impact the PFD has on our state. Alaska does not use the revenues to fix roads, build new structures, or pay salaries. The revenues are used for investment purposes. I will create a set of T/F questions based on this information. My goal is for students to understand that the PFD revenue is invested and not spent frivolously.

How the Permanent Fund Dividend Impacts the Residents of Alaska Assessment Piece

I will create a checklist of possible personal uses of the PFD for students to take home. Students will talk with their parents regarding their own PFD. Parents will go through the list with their child and check off all of the items that apply to their family. Parents have a right to their privacy in regards to how they use the PFD, so students will be asked to leave their names off of the checklist when they turn it in.

I will send a note home with the checklist that states the purpose of this assignment. I am asking parents to give up personal information, which some may not want to divulge. Therefore, I will clearly state that they may opt out of this part of the assignment with no deduction of point to their child’s grade. When asking parents information such as this, they are sometime unwilling to participate. However, I have had the most success with these types of assignments when I create clear learning objectives for the parents. In the past, I’ve only had a few parents choose not to participate in these types of assignments.

Once all of the checklists are returned, we will compile a class list together. Students will then take that data and create a graph/pie chart that shows the breakdown of the personal uses of the Alaska PFD as a class. Students will have a choice of the type of chart they want to create. I will make certain to teach the students how to create different types of graphs and charts prior to this unit.


Other Characteristics

Electra is a blue-white giant star of spectral type B6IIIe. It has prominent emission lines of hydrogen in its spectrum. The average surface temperatures of Electra have been estimated at around 13,484 K.

This means that Electra is 2.3 times hotter than our Sun. Electra is also 940 times brighter than our Sun. Electra, like most of its neighbors, is a very fast-spinning star.

It has a rotational velocity of at 181 km / 112 mi per second, and possibly more at its equator. Because of this speed, Electra is surrounded by a disk of ejected material around the equator.

Thus it is also classified as a Be star. Its equatorial radius is greater than its polar radius since the poles are flattened (due to the speed) and the equatorial region bulges out because of it.

At the same time, Electra’s surface temperature, gravity, and brightness are higher at its poles. This phenomenon is called gravity darkening, a conditioned also witnessed in the stars Achernar and Vega, in the constellations of Eridanus and Lyra.

USS Cole (DD-155/ AG-116)

USS Cole (DD-155) was a Wickes class destroyer that served in the Atlantic and Mediterranean theatres during the Second World War, supporting Operation Torch and the invasions of Sicily and mainland Italy.

The Cole was named after Major Edward Ball Cole, who was mortally wounded on 10 June 1918 during the battle of Belleau Wood.

The Cole was launched at Cramps on 11 January 1919 and commissioned on 19 June 1919. Eleven days later she left New York to join the U.S. flotilla operating in Turkish waters. She spent the next year operating in the Black Sea and the eastern Mediterranean. She returned to New York on 4 June 1920 and spent the next two years taking part in normal peacetime fleet operations off the East Coast. She was decommissioned for the first time on 10 July 1922.

The Cole was recommissioned on 1 May 1930 and joined the Scouting Fleet, then based in the Atlantic. She took part in the same peacetime routine as in the 1920s, operating along the east coast and in the Caribbean. In April 1933 she helped in the hunt for survivors from the airship USS Akron (ZRS-4), lost on 4 April. She also spent two periods in the rotating reserve - 22 October 1932-24 March 1933 and 3 February-14 August 1934. On 15 August 1934 she resumed active service, and was once again allocated to the Scouting Force, which was now based in the Pacific. She took part in operations in the Caribbean before reaching San Diego on 9 November 1934. She spent the next year and a half in the Pacific, before returning to New York in May 1936 to serve as a Naval Reserve training ship. She was decommissioned for the second time on 7 January 1937.

Anyone who served on her between 29 July-12 September, 29 September-14 October or 1 November-7 December 1941 qualified for the American Defence Service Medal.

The Cole was recommissioned on 16 October 1939 and joined the neutrality patrol in the Atlantic. In December 1939 she helped track the German liner Columbus as she attempted to return to German waters from Mexico. As the American involvement in the battle of the Atlantic increased she was used to escort convoys between Newfoundland and Iceland, making five trips between 10 June 1941, when America was officially neutral and 28 January 1942, by which time she was officially in the war.

Between 14 March and 28 September 1942 the Cole performed anti-submarine duties along the US East Coast, which had suddenly become a major war zone. She also made one run to the Virgin Islands during this period.

The Cole then joined the massive fleet that crossed the Atlantic as part of Operation Torch. On 8 November 1942 she landed 175 men from the 47th Infantry at Safi, Morocco, in one of the more daring exploits of the day. She had her mast removed to help with the attack, as did the Bernadou (DD-153), the other ship involved in the attack (presumably to change her appearance). She received a Presidential Unit Citation for her role in this attack.

On 12 November the transport Titania (AK-55) was attacked by U-130 while being escorted by the Cole. On 14 November she rescued the crew and passengers from the Electra (AK-21) after she was torpedoed while carrying wounded soldiers to Fedhala.

Between 18 December 1942 and 15 February 1943 the Cole returned to convoy escort duty along the American east coast. In March 1943 she crossed the Atlantic to March, and then moved back into the Mediterranean, reaching Mers-el-Kebir on 23 May 1943.

The Cole remained in the Mediterranean until late December. During this period she took part in the invasion of Sicily (10 July 1943), operating alongside a British submarine (HMS Shakespeare) in a beach identification group. She also supported the invasion of Salerno on the mainland of Italy on 9 September 1943, guarding the transport ships.

The Cole returned to the US in late December, and after an overhaul resumed her convoy escort duties, operating along the east coast and into the Caribbean. In March 1944 she made one final voyage to the Mediterranean, visiting Casablanca.

On 3 December 1944 the Cole became a plane guard, operating with new aircraft carriers working up around Quonset Point, Rhode Island. She was reclassified as AG-116 on 30 June 1945, and finished her plane guard duties on 31 August 1945.

The Cole was decommissioned on 1 November 1945 and sold on 6 October 1947.

The Cole earned three battle stars during the Second World War, for Operation Torch, the invasion of Sicily and the Salerno landings.
