Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world

I get up in the morning
For my dose of the news
Crawl right back in the sack girl
Had enough of the truth
Spend your dollars and rubles
Buy a piece of the wall
Build it up in your backyard
I’m so sick of it all

Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world

Driving down to the city
Doing 155
Better late than never
I’m more dead than alive
We can find the Titanic
Put a man on the moon
But we can’t fix out backyard
Man we better start soon

Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world

I don’t want to hear about it
I wish it would be worlds away
You know the more I think about it
The more I feel we need to change

I get up (In a crazy, crazy world)
We all live (In a crazy, crazy world)
Ooh (It’s a crazy, crazy world)
Got to get out (Of this crazy, crazy world)

Going home to my baby
It’s been another hard day
Bust my balls for the tax man
So what else can I say
They spent our money on missiles
For the Third World War
Now they’re stacked in my backyard
We don’t need them no more

Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world
Ooh, it’s a crazy world

Flight News On World Air News Round UP

We have air news around the world on airlines, aircrafts, technology, training and many others as follows for November 2010,

Partnership Remembered

LG Electronics South Africa and South African Air Forces Korean Veterans Association handed over a commemorative painting of the South Korean Ambassador to South Africa at a function held in Sand ton recently to mark the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean conflict in 1950.

No.2 Squadron, SAAF.-The Flying Cheetahs â??supported the Korean War effort with a distinguished record of service in Korea. The Flying Cheetahs piloted P-51D Mustangs and F-86F Sabres during this time which are the subjects of the painting by Professor Derrick Dickens.

The Korean electronics giant, LG Electronics, donated money to the SAAF Korean Veterans Association for the painting of the two types of aircraft flown by South Africans in the liberation efforts in Korea between 1950 and 1953 .The painting was later handed over to the President of Korea, Lee Myung-bak by the Korean ambassador to South Africa, Hansoo Kim.

The pilots and men of the squadron were highly decorated heroes who received a total of 797 medals. These included two silver stars-the highest award to non-American nationals-three Legions of Merit for meritorious conduct,55 Distinguished Flying Crosses for heroism in aerial combat and 40 Bronze Stars for bravery.

No.2 Squadron flew a total of 12 067 sorties for a loss of 34 pilots and two other ranks. Its role was mainly flying ground attack and interdiction missions as one of the squadrons making up the United States Air Forces 18th Fighter Bomber Wing.

Thunder City to Cease Flying

Well-known Thunder City, which has the worlds largest civilian-owned fleet of ex-combat jets including three English Electric Lightings, three BAe Buccaneers, five Hawker Hunters, a Strike master and two retrofitted Puma helicopters, ceased flying operations shortly before the opening of the Africa Aerospace and Defense exhibition in late September at which it was widely expected to perform .

Making the announcement founder and CEO of Thunder City, Mike Beachy Head said:”Established under the name Thunder City 2000, the brand has gone on to become one of the most globally recognized as a home-grown South Africa one. Seen by an estimated 1, 5 billion TV viewers in countries across the planet, the iconic Thunder City, jets have inspired many to travel to Cape Town to experience the thrill and adrenaline-rush of flying in a supersonic ex-military jet.”

Beachy Head added that it had not been an easy decision to make, but that a number of factors such as the current slow economy, high cost of maintenance, difficulties with inconsistencies from the authorities and short to medium term prospects, had influenced the closures. He says that the 14 aircraft would be mothballed until a final decision is made as to the future of this valuable and historic collection.

During the past decade the Thunder City jets have flown more than 2000 sorties and generated revenue in excess of R100-million.

Longest Flight

Embraers ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet demonstrator aircraft recently made company history by completing the longest distance ever flown by an Embraer aircraft.

In its first nonstop flight from Mumbai, in India, to London’s Luton Airport, in England, the Lineage 1000 covered a ground distance of 4015 nautical miles in nine hours and i5 minutes. This distance is equivalent to 4400 nautical miles with no headwind.

Future Star Alliance Member

Star Alliance has announced that the Chief Executive Board has unanimously approved the application of Ethiopian Airlines to join Star Alliance.

This means that, in future, the alliance will have three main hubs in Africa-Addis Ababa, Cairo and Johannesburg-allowing for an ideal access to the continent from either North, Centre-East or South.

Ethiopian Airlines will add five new countries (Chad, Congo, Djibouti, Mali, and Niger) and 24 African destinations to the Star Alliance network, which will then encompass a total of 29 carriers, offering a choice of more than 21380 daily flights to 1196 destinations in 186 countries.

SAA Drops CT-DBN Route

SAA and Mango have concluded a code share agreement on the route between Cape Town and Durban.

This code share agreement has enabled SAA to withdraw its aircraft from the Durban-Cape Town route effective from the beginning of this month and still continue servicing this market with SAA customers flying on the Mango aircraft.

US/Angola Flights

Delta Air Lines add an eighth destination to its growing Africa route network in January, with the first-ever scheduled direct service between the United States and Luanda, Angola.

Flights will operate three times per week with 243-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft flying between Deltas hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Luanda with an intermediate stop in Dakar, Senegal.

Another B737 for Air Algerie

Boeing has delivered to Air Algerie its 11th 737-800 which operates a fleet composed primarily of B737s and some 767s.

Boeing is scheduled to deliver two additional 737-800s before the year-end, as well as four more in 2011.Air Algerie will be operating 17 B737-800s in 2011 for a total of 22 Next-Generation B737 airliners to complement its fleet.

Honeywell Operator Conference

Honeywell Aerospace in conjunction with two of its South African channel partners recently hosted an operator conference for operators, pilots and maintenance personnel.

The focus of the conference was to provide information and training on various Honeywell products and services.

The programme consisted of a review of Honeywell’s customer and products support services including; MySpace website update, services issues, entry-into service, training, maintenance service programmes and HAPP.

In Addition, brief updates and technical presentations on current RMUs and maintenance and operational issues were conducted, followed by an open-floor session.

A pilot training session was also held as part of the conference.

Terrafugia Preps for Production

The developers of the Transition folding-wing “road able” aircraft are preparing a 1765-square-metre area at its local facility for low-volume production to begin in late 2011.

The company is currently working on construction of two of its newly redesigned vechicles, which will serve as road test and light sport aircraft certification flight test vechicles, respectively .Terrafugia is currently targeting a low-to mid -$ 200000 purchase price for the Transition, and says construction of the two test prototypes will help finalize final pricing.

If all goes well, the company hopes to provide “fifty skilled manufacturing jobs” at its new facility by 2013 as it ramps up toward high-volume production .But those plans have not yet been finalized and will similarly be affected by the lessons of low-volume production, according to the company.

To date it has about 80 orders for the aircraft.Terrafugia is accepting reservations with a $ 10 000 refundable deposit.

HBV VP for Africa

Hawker Beech craft Corporation (HBC) has announced the appointment of Scott Plumb as vice president, Hawker Jet Sales for Europe, the Middle East and Africa(EMEA) region.

What’s in my bag August 12, 2012

I apologise for the appalling quality of the photograph. That is the combination of using an iPhone and a location with uneven lighting.

Normally an iPhone 4 should be present in this picture as I always carry it in the bag – actually in the blue ‘3way Accessory Case’ attached to the blue ‘Deluxe Strap Pad’.

I didn’t empty the Ordning & Reda Pencil case as it has only a couple of pens (Pentel Tradio – www.penteleurope.com/pages/trj50_trj74_infopage.htm and a Rotring Core series fountain pen, Tanakor model used to write on my main working notepad – a Clairefontaine – good paper deserves to be honoured with a fountain pen and a good ink) and a pack of Waterman ink cartridges in it.

The bag is a:
Custom Laptop Messenger Bag
– size: medium
– ballistic nylon spinach / stripes blue / ballistic nylon spinach
– binding: pacific blue
– logo: pacific blue
– liner: argon blue
– crater laptop sleeve
– grab strap
– compression straps with tabs
– right handed

I find the blue liner especially nice, although I have always been a fan of the orange ones.

Notoriously missing – my Livescribe pen, which I forgot at work this weekend.

As always, my What’s in my bag shot comes heavily annotated with Flickr-notes, simply mouse-over an object to see what it is.

Volcanic plume has far reaching effects on the weather, Earth – Blocks sunlight
The explosive eruption of a volcano in Iceland has had various local and distant effects. In Iceland, volcanic ash is settling on the land, threatening the health of grazing livestock, while mud flows, known as lahars, and glacial floods, known as jokulhlaup, threaten the tourists who have converged on the area since the eruption began last month. Across Europe, thousands of flights have been cancelled, with economic losses thought to be in the billions. . . But as the volcano continues to burble, and gases that were once dissolved in magma deep within the Earth are released as vapour and carried on the wind, scientists are watching for possible changes in the weather and, more controversially, the wider climate. Reports indicate that the Iceland eruption, while relatively small, has sent its plume high enough into the atmosphere to reach the fast-moving winds that can spread it around the globe.

www.csmonitor.com/USA/2010/0416/Researchers-puzzle-over-h…
As travelers contend with global airline cancellations and delays triggered by clouds of ash from an erupting volcano in Iceland, researchers are trying to judge just how long the mountain’s explosive eruptions might last.While airlines have coped with eruptions along the Pacific Rim’s Ring of Fire, this marks the first time modern Europe – with its high concentration of major airports – has had to cope with the disruptions caused by wind-steered clouds of volcanic ash, researchers say. On Friday, airlines canceled some 16,000 flights, twice the number of cancellations Thursday. Typically, air traffic hovers around 28,000 flights a day.

Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull volcano, the culprit behind the flight cancellations, has erupted only twice before over the past 1,100 years. The volcano’s last active period lasted from 1821 to 1823.

www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2010/04/iceland_volcano_eyja…
Can You Say ‘Eyjafjallajokull’?
One thing you won’t hear too often, at least on U.S. broadcast outlets, is an attempt to pronounce the name of the glacier — Eyjafjallajokull — under which the volcano lies and from which it gets its name.

NPR librarian Kee Malesky checked with Iceland’s embassy in Washington and came away with this: "AY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul."

The Intersection
world news
Image by Stuck in Customs
Today we have a new photo from downtown Tokyo. By now, you have probably figured out that I just can’t get enough of these downtown shots. Each angle is nice and different in its own way. Sometimes I like to freeze the action, and sometimes I like to let it flow. It totally depends on my mood when I am shooting.

While I am there, I usually have a pretty good idea of how I want to execute the post-processing. It changes the way I take the shots. For example, if I want the action frozen, I’ll crank up the ISO so that the people don’t drag across the shutter too much. I have my 5 exposures so that the +2 (the longest) fires first. So I know if the middle exposure (the anchor, I call it) has a shutter that is open too long. I can just hear it. If it feels too long, I double the ISO and it halves the shutter speed of the anchor. This is always my action/reaction when shooting in aperture priority.

Circumnavigating the Lake

Image by Stuck in Customs
This is yet another glacier-filled lake in the mountains between Chile & Argentina. I got up pretty high on a short hike to get this shot. I had seen this bright tuft of red leaves and wanted to work it into the final product. We were on the edge of autumn and a few leaves were starting to change colors. Most of the leaves were not in any interesting compositional angles or were impossible to get near! So this one took a bit of a hike to find and set up…

Also, thanks to everyone on Twitter and Facebook that became agitated when the cop threatened to arrest me because I looked like a professional photographer with my tripod in front of the Coke museum. Anyway, Coke saw the message on Twitter and via several emails that were sent in – so thank you Gail and all the others that helped! Props to Coke Social Media (see down in comment 55) for the response.

And last, I’ll be on FOX here in Austin this (Tuesday) morning for the morning news… A little interview at sunrise. It’s midnight and I should be asleep right now… okay here I go.

The Beneficiaries In South African World Cup

This is a session to be filled with star light of World Cup, even more the World Cup can be regarded as a war of commercial. In this grand feast, not only has the International Soccer Association and the South African World Cup Organization committee’s form, also has Puma, MacDonald and so on well-known brand, even more, Chinese enterprises have appeared in this grand feast, as well as “China made”.

As far as many people are concerned, the influence of South Africa World Cup is can not be ignored, only at the aspect of economy, that its income is quite objective. However, compared to the fact, this session of World Cup for South African, the payment was more than income. It is known to all, this time the more than 3.5 billion dollars has been invested by World Cup Organization committee, was the highest investment in the history of the World Cup. But this already went far beyond anticipated, it is said many local authorities of South Africa already were heavily in debt.

According to this data, many professionals analyzed and trusted the income of this World Cup of South Africa is going to be unsatisfactory. There was a study that total 32 pages to report the financial position of World Cup in South Africa, it reported the income of World Cup would not make up the payment of South Africa. What is more, there had the worker strike and the foreign tourist sharp decline. For the people’s health sake, the local government limited the number of foreign tourist, the number got to 1,000,000.

Who are the greatest beneficiaries? Perhaps FIFA, as the supreme governing body of world football, FIFA copyright by television has maintained a steady income. It is reported by data in 2009, the total profit of FIFA’s reached nearly 196 million dollars, and the financial income got to about 10 billion dollars. Just like a few of sports medias reported that FIFA was a “board”. Maybe Puma to be, in this World Cup, Puma as one of FIFA sponsor, supplied the equipment sets for some African teams or athletes, and achieved historical feat.

With political pointed out, in addition to show own influence of soccer in South Africa World Cup, the people’s expectations of its more a matter of fact that drives the economy of South Africa and the African continent to take off, but under the background that the global economy not yet out of recession, it could not say certainly that the economy of South African must be rised.

For Chinese people, Chinese football team could not participate in the World Cup that is quite disappointed. But you would see the Chinese shadow on the playground.

Looked at the whole playground, it was filled with Chinese elements. Vuvuzelas are popular with Africa’s fans, but the worry for many players, even had a prohibition about playing, in fact, mostly made in China.

Even more, including footballs were made in China. It is said a manufacture of Jiangxi that offered the “celebrate” that as the World Cup ball, China produced a total 12 million designated ball games and business, this was controversial.

To our surprised, Chinese sponsors with other world famous brands entered the large stage of World Cup. China Harbin beer can be seen in every World Cup’s match. They are the World Cup official sponsors, has also been in World Cup history first time presents the Chinese Enterprise’s name.

Would like to know more on puma trainers or other related information, you could enter into our web, and find the message that you need, like cheap puma trainers or puma Drift Cat trainers.

Archive: Alexandria, Egypt (NASA, International Space Station, 07/23/03)
world news
Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
Editor’s note: happy Earth Day to all! There will be so many wonderful Earth images around today…I thought I’d visit the archives and see what buried treasure might be found. There are so many that it’s hard to choose!

(From 2003) Alexandria, Egypt, is featured in this image photographed by an Expedition 7 crewmember on the International Space Station (ISS). Founded by Alexander the Great in 331 BC on the Mediterranean coast of Egypt, Alexandria became a center of trade and learning in the ancient world. Alexander built the causeway between the Eastern and Western Harbors, joining Pharos Island to the mainland. Alexandria’s cultural status was symbolized by the lighthouse on Pharos, one of the “Seven Wonders of the World.” The causeway is still known as the old part of the modern city. Since the year 2000, underwater archeologists have located the sunken palace, ceremonial buildings and port facilities of ancient Alexandria, located along most of the curved southern shoreline of the Eastern Harbor. This detailed image provides a view of the modern port facilities in the Western Harbor, where wharves and many moored ships can be detected.

About Crew Earth Observations:

In Crew Earth Observations (CEO), crewmembers on the International Space Station (ISS) photograph the Earth from their unique point of view located 200 miles above the surface. Photographs record how the planet is changing over time, from human-caused changes like urban growth and reservoir construction, to natural dynamic events such as hurricanes, floods and volcanic eruptions. A major emphasis of CEO is to monitor disaster response events in support of the International Disaster Charter (IDC). CEO imagery provides researchers on Earth with key data to understand the planet from the perspective of the ISS. Crewmembers have been photographing Earth from space since the early Mercury missions beginning in 1961. The continuous images taken from the ISS ensure this record remains unbroken.

Chilean Andes Mountains (NASA, ISERV, 06/14/13)
world news
Image by NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center
This ISERV image shows the towering, snow-topped mountains and deeply carved valleys of the Chilean Andes. The Andes Mountains form one of the longest continuous mountain ranges in the world, extending along South America’s western coast. The range is about 7,000 km (4,300 mi) long, passing through Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, and Venezuela. The Chilean Andes form most of the border between Chile and Argentina and include the highest section of the mountain range. The highest peak stands almost 6,962 m (22,841 ft) above sea level in the province of Mendoza, Argentina. The Chilean Andean system plays a strong role in Chile’s weather, with the two sides the Andes exhibiting strong climatic differences.

About ISERV

From the Earth-facing window of the International Space Station’s (ISS) Destiny module, nearly 95 percent of the planet’s populated area is visible during the station’s orbit. This unique vantage point provides the opportunity to take photos of Earth from space. With the installation and activation of the ISS SERVIR Environmental Research and Visualization System (ISERV), NASA will be able to provide even higher resolution images of Earth! The ISERV camera system’s mission is to gain experience and expertise in automated data acquisition from the space station. ISERV is expected to provide useful images for disaster monitoring and assessment and environmental decision making.

Editor’s note: going way back into the archives to 1997 for this beauty, seen during Space Shuttle Discovery’s STS-85 mission. Happy Tuesday, Flickr friends!

This low oblique, northeast view of the south, southeast tip of Greenland shows the glaciated coastline of the world’s largest island. The elongated, dark fingers of the open water from the North Atlantic Ocean that extend towards the interior are fjords. These deep, glacial troughs along the coastline are eroded valleys that once were occupied by valley glaciers. Several valley glaciers can be seen at the head of some of the fjords. The large concentrations of white on the image show the location of the prominent ice fields. The elevated ice fields shown on this image are located between 60 and 61 degrees north latitude.

Greenland is an autonomous country within the Kingdom of Denmark.

Supernova Remnant SN 1006 (NASA, Chandra, 04/17/13)
world news

This year, astronomers around the world have been celebrating the 50th anniversary of X-ray astronomy. Few objects better illustrate the progress of the field in the past half-century than the supernova remnant known as SN 1006.

When the object we now call SN 1006 first appeared on May 1, 1006 A.D., it was far brighter than Venus and visible during the daytime for weeks. Astronomers in China, Japan, Europe, and the Arab world all documented this spectacular sight. With the advent of the Space Age in the 1960s, scientists were able to launch instruments and detectors above Earth’s atmosphere to observe the Universe in wavelengths that are blocked from the ground, including X-rays. SN 1006 was one of the faintest X-ray sources detected by the first generation of X-ray satellites.

A new image of SN 1006 from NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory reveals this supernova remnant in exquisite detail. By overlapping ten different pointings of Chandra’s field-of-view, astronomers have stitched together a cosmic tapestry of the debris field that was created when a white dwarf star exploded, sending its material hurtling into space. In this new Chandra image, low, medium, and higher-energy X-rays are colored red, green, and blue respectively.

The new Chandra image provides new insight into the nature of SN1006, which is the remnant of a so-called Type Ia supernova. This class of supernova is caused when a white dwarf pulls too much mass from a companion star and explodes, or when two white dwarfs merge and explode. Understanding Type Ia supernovas is especially important because astronomers use observations of these explosions in distant galaxies as mileposts to mark the expansion of the Universe.

The new SN 1006 image represents the most spatially detailed map yet of the material ejected during a Type Ia supernova. By examining the different elements in the debris field — such as silicon, oxygen, and magnesium — the researchers may be able to piece together how the star looked before it exploded and the order that the layers of the star were ejected, and constrain theoretical models for the explosion.

Scientists are also able to study just how fast specific knots of material are moving away from the original explosion. The fastest knots are moving outward at almost eleven million miles per hour, while those in other areas are moving at a more leisurely seven million miles per hour. SN 1006 is located about 7,000 light years from Earth. The new Chandra image of SN 1006 contains over 8 days worth of observing time by the telescope. These results were presented at a meeting of High Energy Astrophysics Division of the American Astronomical Society in Monterey, CA.
