The moon is bright, the frogs are out, the insects are a-flying

I am down in Arkansas doing some training and on the long drive down here last night, there was an beautiful, nearly full moon out.  Since this is not my favorite place to be, this was nice to see.   377 more words

坐飛機遇到氣流不用怕,8 大守則減低風險

天有不測之風雲,在飛機上不時都很容易遇上氣流,但無需害怕,只需要跟從以下安全守則,就可減少在空中因氣流而受損的時間。

  1. 直航機風險少
    大部分空難意外都是在起飛或降落時侯發生,當減少轉機的機會時,就自然可減少發生空難意外的機率。
  2. 大型飛機較多安全規定
    選擇航班時,記緊要選一些機體較大的航班,因較大機體的飛機往往會受到較嚴的安全規定,而大飛機的乘客在發生意外時的存活率往往比小飛機的高。
  3. 留意廣播的安全指示
    一上到飛機後請勿只顧看飛機雜誌及掛上耳筒聽音樂,應多留意聽聽空中服務員說緊急求生程序,以確萬存。
  4. 留意緊急出口位置
    同樣地,空中服務員會跟乘客指出最近他們的緊急出口在哪裡,你應好好牢記住,當發生任何意外時也懂得如何逃離。
  5. 別帶太大件的行李
    若行李太大件都是拿去寄艙比較好,因若飛機遇上氣流時而令飛機顛簸,行李櫃可以會受不住壓力以致櫃門開啟,乘客很多時都會因行李傾瀉而受傷。
  6. 危險物品別帶上機
    記緊要跟隨海關人員指示,不要把氣罐及易燃罐放到手提行李帶上飛機,因這會很容易引起火災。同樣地,也請不要攜帶利器,因若利器從手提行李中跌出來,亦很容易傷到其他人。
  7. 飲酒危害健康
    喝太多酒不單有機會醉倒,亦有機會導致意識不清醒,一旦發生意外時也走避不及。
  8. “Brace”
    在遇上氣流下或機件故障引起飛出現強烈的顛簸時,請跟從空中服務員的指示,當他們叫 “Brace” 時,請將雙手交叉搭在前排座位上,把頭擱在雙手間,一直保持此姿勢直至著陸,這可減少身體受到掉下來行李的撞擊面積。
