Airplane Travel VS. Climate Change



PA Archive/PA Images


We already know that climate change might make air travel more turbulent.


But now it looks like it will impact it in an even more drastic way: A new study in the journal Climatic Change examines how rising air temperatures will affect airplanes' ability to take off. And the results aren't promising.



The study, conducted by researches from Columbia University, NASA and the Logistics Management Institute, constructed models based on the five most popular aircraft and nineteen major airports around the world.


The study says, "We find that on average, 10–30% of annual flights departing at the time of daily maximum temperature may require some weight restriction below their maximum takeoff weights, with mean restrictions ranging from 0.5 to 4% of total aircraft payload and fuel capacity by mid- to late century."

The researchers note that they tested both small and large aircraft in their models, and both were affected by higher temperatures.


There are going to be some real repercussions for this; airlines are going to cancel and reschedule flights more due to excessive heat, and airlines will have to start investing in infrastructure to extend runways.



Additionally, less weight on an airline means fewer passengers and baggage, so you can count on ticket prices and check-in bag fees increasing in the medium-term futures.




Girl dies after accidentally pulling trigger of gun

while trying to get candy from grandmother's purse (祖母の財布からキャンディーを取ろうとして...)
AOL.COM 15 hrs ago

A 4-year-old girl in Florida died after reaching into her grandmother's purse for candy and accidentally pulling the trigger of a gun.


Yanelly "Nelly" Zoller passed away from a gunshot wound earlier this month at the Tampa home of her grandparents.

ヤネリー "ネリー" ゾーラちゃんはタンパにある祖父母の家で今月初め、拳銃の傷がもとで死去した。

"She just wanted some damn candy," father Shane Zoller told the Tampa Bay Times on Wednesday.

"彼女はただキャンディーが欲しかっただけなんだよ" 父親のシェーンゾラさんはタンパベイタイムスに水曜日語った。

Nelly was "attached to her nana's hip" and loved staying at her grandparents' house, Shane Zoller told the newspaper

ネリーは、"おばあちゃんにべったりで" (お尻にくっつく程)祖父母の家に滞在するのが好きだったと、シェーン ゾラさんは新聞社に語った。

"I was driving to pick her up with her bathing suit in my car to take her to the splash pads," he told the newspaper. "When I pulled up, that's when I saw all the police lights."



Shane Zoller, who is 22, says he was in high school when he became a dad.

シェーン ゾーラは22歳であるが、彼が父親になったのは高校生の時であった。

Little Nelly loved playing with her puppy, watching cartoons and jumping on her couch, according to the newspaper.


Tampa police are looking into the shooting, but have no reason to doubt the family's account, according to the Tampa Bay Times.






Dubai Oldest Running Club

Welcome to Dubai's oldest running club -- possibly one of the most hardcore sports groups in the world http://cnn.it/2xu4Yxy



Story highlights
The Desert Road Runners is the oldest running club in Dubai

Despite its inferno-like summer temperatures, running in the emirate has exploded in recent years.



Dubai, United Arab Emirates (CNN) - It's 35 degrees Celsius on the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha, and a group of women wearing tiny shorts and Lycra vests are about to jog with men around a public park in Dubai.

ドバイ、ユナイテッド アラブ エミレーツ CNN発信 -  エイド アラダのイスラム休日における気温は摂氏35度、ショートパンツとライクラのベストを着用した女性の一団はドバイの公共公園を男性と一緒にジョギングをしている。

My feelings of apprehension are twofold.


One: exercising in this heat seems masochistic. Two: women in Dubai are generally expected to dress conservatively in public.

1。 この熱波の中の運動はまさにマゾ的なことである。

2。 ドバイの女性たちは通常人前では伝統的な服装をしているはずである。
But in the sort of cultural contradiction that has come to typify Dubai, concern is not needed.


Female runners, it transpires, are unofficially absolved from observing the emirate's religious rules of sartorial decency.



And as for the temperature? Well, the mercury hit 45 degrees Celsius last week.

SpaceX has confirmed that the Dragon capsule used to ferry cargo including supplies and experimentation material has returned to Earth as planned, with a successful splashdown in the Pacific Ocean.

★as planned : 予定通り...

★splashdown : 逆噴射してプラットホーム(着陸場)に戻る事

The Dragon went up to the International Space Station on SpaceX’s CRS-12 resupply mission, which launched in August.

ISS: International Space Station の略

Dragon brought a number of experimental payloads to the ISS, including a supercomputer built by HPE that is designed to test whether software hardening alone, without any additional hardware changes vs. a standard supercomputer configuration, can keep the computer operating as intended in the harsh conditions of space.
