Can You Land An Airplane In An Emergency?

It's a nightmare scenario when a pilot becomes incapacitated and another person needs to take the pilot's seat and act as pilot to land the plane. Have you considered taking on this undertaking? If your name is Darren Harrison, the answer is yes. In early May, he was flying a single-engine Cessna 208 aircraft from the Bahamas to Fort Pierce, Florida, when the pilot went incoherent and left the plane with no one at the controls. But with over-the-radio help from certified flight instructor Robert Morgan, who acted as an air traffic controller and guided Harrison to Palm Beach International Airport, he landed the plane almost perfectly. The occurrence is the very most recent in a dash of comparatively fortunate "talk-down" arrivals, in which a traveler set down a plane securely with th...

Search Histories, Location Data, And Text Messages Could Be Used To Enforce Anti-Abortion Laws.

Friday's ruling by the Supreme Court to overturn Roe v. Wade is likely to unleash a wave of new state legislation taking aim at abortion rights, and to reinforce existing laws that prohibit and in some cases criminalize abortion. Among the wide-ranging potential implications of the decision are concerns about the potential use of personal data to punish people who look for information about or access to abortion services online. In a number of the most restrictive states, privacy advocates warn that current affairs, travel plans, and other digital information could be utilized by law enforcement investigating the circumstances surrounding abortion cases. On Friday, the Supreme Court struck down Roe v. Swim, the 50-year-old decision that reliable an individual's Constitutional right t...

His 4-6, 6-3, 6-2, 6-4 victory gave the Scotsman the opportunity to remark in an impromptu press meet about the practicality in his use of the bizarre reciprocated serve.

Several States Immediately Banned Abortion After The Supreme Court’s Decision.

One by one, quite a few states, many of them led by Republicans, have quickly prohibited abortion after the Supreme Court granted permission on Friday to states to do so. At least ten states have already banned abortion after Friday's ruling. According to the Guttmacher Institute, a nonprofit organization that works to advance reproductive health worldwide, 26 states have laws that indicate they could outlaw or set extreme limits on abortions.

Wade (1973), which established a constitutional right to an abortion. Other states have trigger bans with implementation mechanisms that occur after a set period or after a ste...

‘Westworld’ Again Boards Its Carriages But Never Quite Escapes The Maze It Has Constructed.

"Westworld" returns for a third season, featuring several familiar faces in unfamiliar roles and extending aspects of the second season that creatively sailed off the rails. While there is surely intelligent life out there eager to see where this goes, at this point it's not so much a question of not being able to follow the series through its convoluted maze as simply not feeling as if it's worth the energy to try. Looking more conspicuously futuristic in its design, the HBO drama still boasts an assortment of really good actors, augmented by James Marsden returning and Oscar winner Ariana DeBose and Daniel Wu among the new additions. Much of the bloodshed inflicted on one person is committed anonymously and at random, with little indication that the train will even reach its destinati...
