  • 14 BIGGEST SECRETS of Flight Attendants!

    Secrets flight attendants don’t want you to know! These top facts about airplanes and flying that only flight attendants and insiders know 14. Unsanitary Incidents- A lot of passengers like to remove their shoes when they get to their seat and just relax for the rest of the flight. But the inside of airplanes isn't always as clean as it looks. Even though flight attendants clean after the plane has landed, not all messes are accounted for. Many unsanitary incidents occur during trips that passengers consider or rarely see like unexpected bathroom accidents and sickness. People also change their baby's diapers on the table trays and not every tabletop gets thoroughly wiped between each flight.

  • Mechanical sailing! World's first wind assisted passenger cruise ship M/S Viking Grace ferry debuts

    Four 24 meter rotor sails installed on Viking Line cruise ship M/S Viking Grace in operation between Turku, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden, will transform it into the world's first modern sailing ship with increased economy and reduced emissions on 12th of April, 2018. With wind propulsion based on the Flettner rotor principle, estimated annual emissions reductions of up to 900 tonnes may be possible. M/S Viking Grace was also the world's first LNG powered passenger liner. Utilizing wind power for assisting propulsion when possible also reduces the wear of the main engine. Two Norsepower rotor sails will also be installed on a new cruise ferry vessel which is currently being built in China and is expected to start operation in 2020. https://www.norsepower.com/ https://www.vikingline.com/...

Secrets flight attendants don’t want you to know! These top facts about airplanes and flying that only flight attendants and insiders know 14. Unsanitary Incidents- A lot of passengers like to remove their shoes when they get to their seat and just relax for the rest of the flight. But the inside of airplanes isn't always as clean as it looks. Even though flight attendants clean after the plane has landed, not all messes are accounted for. Many unsanitary incidents occur during trips that passengers consider or rarely see like unexpected bathroom accidents and sickness. People also change their baby's diapers on the table trays and not every tabletop gets thoroughly wiped between each flight. Plus, the complimentary blankets you receive in the coach’s class are only fresh during the first flight. Afterward, the sheets are folded and reused. Oh and just a head’s up when you go into the lavatory, and you’re just wearing your socks or barefoot, that’s not water you’re stepping in. 13. Decoding Lights- If you’ve ever been on an airplane, you might have noticed pink, yellow and blue lights. They are usually visible inside the cabin, towards the front of the aircraft and make a little ding when the light illuminates. But what does it mean? When the lights chime, it’s an indication for flight attendants that they are needed, and each light means something different. When the light is pink, it says the captain or a fellow flight attendant is calling them. When the yellow light signals on, it indicates a passenger hit the call button while inside the lavatory. If the blue light switches on, it means someone on board needs assistance. On some flights, there is also a green light that could mean a variety of things. It could let flight attendants know when they are near the gate, or it could indicate that the cockpit is off limits because the plane hasn’t reached a certain altitude. But it all varies on the type of aircraft and the carrier. 12. Safety Grab Handles- Next time you’re on board a plan, take a glance of the handles by the door. If you guessed that they were grab handles, you are correct! But why are they there? Well in an emergency situation, filled with chaos and panic the flight attendants are usually found by the exit doors assisting passengers out of the plane. Scared and alarmed passengers who are rushing out of the aircraft have a tendency to push the flight crew out of the way and knock them over all the way down to the slide. So the handles are there as a safety measure for flight attendants to grab on and stay on the plane if that’s what they’re instructed to do. 11. Passenger Code Names- Anything interesting that happens on board will be discussed with the rest of the flight staff. Meaning anything from annoying crying babies to rude passengers will be identified in secrecy and all the other flight attendants will know about it. Flight attendants will give those passengers code names. For example, one code name might be Bob, which stands for boyfriend on board. This is the name given when a flight attendant is attentive to a particular passenger and ensures that he is taken care of throughout the trip. You might hear flight attendants ask about how Bob is doing and how they’re verifying to make sure the relationship is going steadily. 10. All Cargo Aboard- A lot of cargo gets shipped, aside from your luggage there is also dead people in the hold. Some people die abroad and need to be shipped home, or some people are very far from their resting place and are being sent there. The deceased is packed in wood framed boxes so you would never be able to guess its contents, except maybe the strange shape might provide a clue that it’s a body. The deceased is labeled as HR, which means human remains. So if you hear the flight crew mentioning HR while flying Delta, this just means there are human remains in the cargo.However some airlines like Easyjet don’t transfer load, so there won’t be any coffins on the plane.

Four 24 meter rotor sails installed on Viking Line cruise ship M/S Viking Grace in operation between Turku, Finland and Stockholm, Sweden, will transform it into the world's first modern sailing ship with increased economy and reduced emissions on 12th of April, 2018. With wind propulsion based on the Flettner rotor principle, estimated annual emissions reductions of up to 900 tonnes may be possible. M/S Viking Grace was also the world's first LNG powered passenger liner. Utilizing wind power for assisting propulsion when possible also reduces the wear of the main engine. Two Norsepower rotor sails will also be installed on a new cruise ferry vessel which is currently being built in China and is expected to start operation in 2020. https://www.norsepower.com/ https://www.vikingline.com/en/ https://www.vesselfinder.com/?imo=9606900 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flettner_rotor

The optional Audi Intelligence (AI) active suspension, one component of a suite of intelligent features, includes an electric motor at each corner capable of raising or lowering that wheel via a torsion bar linked to the suspension. In effect, there are two springs on each wheel of A8s equipped with the active suspension: an air spring and a torsion bar coupling the wheel carrier to the electric motor. The motors and torsion bars eliminate the need for traditional anti-roll bars by enabling roll control as well as managing pitch and dive. The active setup’s most promising feature, however, is the ability to float the A8’s body over road irregularities. The AI system scans the road ahead with a forward-looking camera (Audi calls the function Preview) and turns that data into wheel motions that follow the road’s shape. Before the front wheels encounter an elevated bump, the body is raised to provide the additional suspension travel needed to absorb the imperfection. Then, as the car passes over, the suspension is extended to trace the road’s topography. Dips and single-wheel events are handled similarly, with the wheels following the terrain while the body remains isolated. The system provides 2.0 inches of lift and 2.4 inches of drop at each wheel, enough to make speed bumps and manhole covers virtually irrelevant. Closed-course demonstrations of the Preview technology were convincing, but we didn’t get to experience it on the open road. Even though the active suspension was fitted to two test cars and performed as promised to limit roll, pitch, and dive, the Preview function wasn’t enabled on those cars. Audi’s Drive Select system is standard and offers three driving modes (Auto, Comfort, and Dynamic) and also integrates control of the AI suspension on cars so equipped. The standard suspension is no slouch itself when it comes to comfort and control. Wheel sizes will start at 19 inches, with options up to 21 inches available. We didn’t sample the optional torque-vectoring Sport rear differential, which no doubt would have improved the handling. Still, we weaved the A8 up a road more appropriate for a Mazda Miata and were impressed with the big Audi’s grip and manners, although no one is pretending a car this large has any business attacking roads that tight. Steering feel, despite efforts to improve its feedback, remains as it is in most other Audis: laser-sight precise, but mostly numb. If Audi could elevate its steering system’s feedback to match its accuracy, it would possess the magic bullet sought by energetic pilots of every executive sedan. The company has figured out that a sedan this long benefits from a tighter turning radius and so offers dynamic all-wheel steering as an option. The system operates over a wide latitude depending on vehicle speed and other factors, behaving as if the steering ratio varies between 9.5:1 and 17.0:1. It’s the inclusion of the rear wheels in the business of turning that makes the real difference. Below 37 mph, the rear wheels turn out of phase with the fronts at an angle of up to 5 degrees, making the A8’s wheelbase feel shorter and shrinking its turning circle by 3.3 feet relative to cars without the system. Above that speed, rear-wheel steering angle is in phase with the fronts and reduced to a maximum of 2 degrees. A cone-smashing parking-lot demonstration proved that you’ll either opt for the four-wheel steering or you’ll do a lot more sawing at the wheel in tight spaces. Hit the Lot Mercifully, the A8 is as well suited to parking-lot duty as Kylie Jenner is to Instagram. The remainder of its AI features are designed to enable low-speed maneuvers in tight spots as well as parking in lots, on the street, or in a garage. Parking Pilot and Remote Parking Pilot enable autonomous parallel or perpendicular parking, although this system, too, wasn’t quite ready for prime time during our demos. During one parallel-parking attempt, we stopped the car manually before it executed autonomous removal of its driver’s-side mirror on a concrete abutment. It was then unable (or unwilling) to extract itself from the parking spot into which it had wedged itself—the automotive equivalent of a toddler’s sit-down protest.
