What is underneath the cabin floor?

first_imgWhile passengers sit comfortably in an airliner’s cabin enjoying their inflight entertainment systems and meals served onboard (at least on international flights), myriad other activities are going on below the floor under their feet. Starting at the nose of the aircraft, a maze of computers and electronic equipment is housed in the avionics bays located just below the cockpit. Immediately aft of that is the wheel well that holds the retracted nose landing gear inflight, and then the cabin pressurization equipment. Multiple air-conditioning “packs” are ahead of the forward baggage bay filled with luggage and cargo which is packed in large bins on wide-body aircraft. In the center of the lower fuselage is the wing spar carry-through, sometimes fitted with a center fuel tank on long-range aircraft. Behind the wing box are the main landing gear wells, and then the aft baggage bays. Lavatory service equipment is located in both the forward and aft lower fuselage, and finally the APU or Auxiliary Power Unit is mounted in the tail.last_img read more

“SIXTY SECONDS IN TOUCH”

first_imgAnother bevy of interesting Touch facts from everywhere… * A massive thank you to Karley Banks who kept everyone around Australia updated on the results and stories from the 2004 School Sport Australia Touch Championships on the Gold Coast. Her efforts were enormous and the stories incredibly entertaining! Her work helped ensure great coverage for the event and for Touch! If you haven’t already, make sure you check out the articles she has written. * Interest in Australian Touch is growing world-wide. As the number of hits on the website increases from around Australia, other countries also seem to be checking us out. We’re being looked at from Austria, Taiwan, Samoa, Egypt, Denmark, Thailand, Netherlands, the US and Togo just to name a few. For all those Touchies out there who are asking “Where the heck is Togo?” I had to have a look on the net myself with Lonely Planet providing all I needed to know… “Togo is a pencil-thin strip of land, but receives rave reviews from travellers. While Lomé and the beaches that surround it are the big draws for most vacationers, those who push on will be wowed by its unique village cultures and the vivacity of their markets and festivals. If there were a popularity contest among countries in West Africa, Togo would probably be a strong contender. Its political turmoil in the early 1990s reduced the stream of travellers to a trickle, but the tide is turning and the attractions that once brought them remain largely the same.” Full country name: Togolese Republic Area: 56,600 sq km Population: 5.4 million Capital City: Lomé (pop 600,000) People: 37 ethnic groups (the largest are Ewé, Mina and Kabyè); less than 1% European and Syrian-Lebanese Language: Ewe, French Religion: indigenous beliefs (70%), Christian (20%), Muslim (10%) Government: republic under transition to multiparty democratic rule Head of State: President General Gnassingbé Eyadéma Head of Government: Prime Minister Koffi Sama GDP: US$6.2 billion GDP per capita: US$1,300 Annual Growth: 4.8% Inflation: 15.7% Major Industries: Phosphate mining, agricultural processing, cement, handicrafts, textiles, beverages Major Trading Partners: Canada, US, Taiwan, Nigeria, Ghana, China, France, Cameroon * The latest media statistics are in…Touch has reached almost 30 million people Australia-wide via the newspapers, radio and television. This combined with nearly 14 million hits on ATA’s site this year, plus on-line journals and news articles, plus the websites of all local, regional and State Touch Associations is great news! Lets keep up the great work promoting our sport and its participants! * And we’re off and racing for the 2004 Melbourne Cup. The race that stops the nation takes place tomorrow (as if you didn’t know) and my money will be on Vinnie Roe, although Makybe Diva will be out for that back-to-back win and Elvstroem, Pacific Dancer and Media Puzzle will all be up there. (The way I figure it is that if I bet on at least half of the field I can’t look like I was wrong.) * A big mention has to go to the Wallsend Touch Association. Over the past few months Wallsend have been going to great lengths to develop their association website. It now includes heaps of information on competitions and draws, including downloadable fixtures. There is information on their sponsors, great biographies on their life members and also player and referee profiles. In addition, check out their photo gallery as well as a social calendar. As if that’s not impressive enough, you can check out the rules and by-laws, as well as media releases that have been issued! Check out www.wallsend.touch.asn.au * The NSWTA All Schools finals for year 7-8’s heats up this weekend. NSW Touch had a record 359 teams enter the year 7-8 competition this year, with the competition held at 24 venues around the State. Winners from each of those regions progressed through to the State finals. Keep an eye on the website next week for all the results of the finals. * Touch SA have continued to develop sponsorship programs for the sport, which is growing rapidly in the Aussie Rules dominated state. Their latest development is a sponsorship agreement with the Commonwealth Bank. Check out http://www.touch-sa.asn.au/main/index_news.html for the story. * Victoria Touch are looking to start a new junior Touch competition in November. With every junior competition that kicks off in the smaller Touch states, it’s a big plus for development. If you have any questions about their new competition, give Victoria Touch a call on (03) 9654 2866. * Monterey Keys Touch Association in South Queensland held their Cancer Cup on Sunday. The Cancer Cup was held to raise money for prostate cancer. 28 teams competed in mixed divisions; 11 years, 15 years, 35 years and Open. From all reports it was a great day of Touch, with former Olympian and Lord Mayor Ron Clark presenting the prizes from the Cup. It’s fantastic to see the sport of Touch supporting such a great cause! * Youth World Cup now just 2 ½ months away! The 20’s sides and 18’s squads head to Runaway Bay next weekend, November 12-13. There the 20’s will be put through their paces in their first training as teams, while the final selections will be made for the 18’s sides. Keep watching the ATA site for all the latest news. * Just a quick note, after the winding forward of our clocks for daylight savings, Queensland are behind us…meaning their office opens at 10am our time. Not sure who’s luckier, the earlier starter or earlier finisher? * 8 weeks till Christmas! All story ideas or requests can be sent to Rachel Moyle, [email protected]last_img read more

Starbucks offers sparkling Crystal Ball Frappucino for buzz

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – Starbucks, thirsty for some social media magic, is releasing its latest sugary concoction: the fortune-telling Crystal Ball Frappucino.The sparkling candy sprinkles-festooned drink will be available for five days in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It follows similar limited-time drinks, such as the coffee chain’s colour-changing Unicorn Frappuccino.Starbucks hopes the cream-based new drink, which is infused with peach flavour, will be photographed by customers, posted on social media and spread around. It’s a strategy that’s worked for other chains, such as Taco Bell with its cheese-powdered Doritos tacos.Starbucks says buyers of the new drink can learn their fortunes based on the colour of the sprinkles atop their whipped cream: blue stands for adventure, green for luck and purple will bring “magic, wonder and enchantment.”Analysts at Stifel, however, are skeptical that buzz will sweeten Starbucks’ sales. It’s unclear if the chain’s past gimmicks worked, and analysts called the timing of the new drink “seemingly random.” Starbucks’ Zombie Frappuccino, for instance, came out before Halloween.last_img read more

Passenger Transportation Board says Greyhound can stop serving Northeast BC on June

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — The Passenger Transportation Board of B.C. has ruled in favour of Greyhound’s application to halt passenger bus service in Northeast B.C. as of June 1st.Last August Greyhound Canada announced that it was planning to cut nine routes across the province, including the Dawson Creek – Whitehorse and Prince George – Dawson Creek routes. The company is also seeking to greatly reduce service on other routes in Southern B.C. after saying that many of its routes are no longer profitable.Greyhound says that ridership on routes connecting the northern half of B.C. with Prince George has declined by 51 percent since 2010, including a 30 percent drop in the last five years. In its ruling, the Passenger Transportation Board explained that Greyhound’s routes in the Peace Region and along Highway 16 have extremely low ridership and very large operating losses that impair the company’s viability.“Greyhound is a for-profit company,” read the Board’s decision. “A review of the company’s financial information demonstrates that the cross-subsidization model of the past no longer holds true. There are insufficient profits on the profitable routes to subsidize its losses on these routes.”Greyhound told the board that by eliminating 1.6 million scheduled miles in the province, it will be able to retain a remaining 3.7 million scheduled miles. “Keeping a viable inter-city passenger bus service in at least some parts of the province is preferable to no service from Greyhound.”However, the Board also found that the public’s need would not be met if Greyhound were allowed to eliminate the four routes without adequate notice, due to the reliance on current service.“Immediate stoppage on these routes and route segments would endanger public safety given the harsh winter climate, inhospitable terrain, and the isolation of those living and working along these routes.”However, the Board ruled that weather conditions should improve by May 31st to a point where public safety would no longer be at risk.During a series of public hearings on the application, Greyhound said it is losing $35,000 per day, which works out to a loss of nearly $13 million per year. The company has called on the provincial government to subsidize intercity bus travel, similar to the subsidies provided to municipal transit.last_img read more
