Gimli Glider

Gimli Glider is the nickname of an Air Canada aircraft which was involved in an infamous aviation incident. On 23 July 1983, a Boeing 767-200 jet, Air Canada Flight 143, ran completely out of fuel at 41,000 feet (12,000m) altitude, about halfway through its flight from Montreal to Edmonton. The crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at Gimli Industrial Park Airport, a former airbase at Gimli, Manitoba.

The Forward Slip
As they decent nearer towards the airport, it became apparent that they were too high, and Pearson executed a maneuver known as a forward slip to increase their drag and reduce their altitude. This gave passengers the sensation of plummeting sideways toward the ground. As Pearson executed the slip, the aircraft was flying over a golf course, and one passenger reportedly said, "Christ. I can almost see what clubs they’re using". A slip is commonly used with gliders and light aircraft, either to lose height quickly or to execute a cross-wind landing. Such forward-slip maneuvers were sometimes used on small planes and gliders, but were unheard of this was done with a jumbo jet. Forty feet above the ground– mere seconds before contact– Captain Pearson managed to wrestle Flight 143 back to a straight and level approach.

My next challenge is to simulate the flight Air Canada Flight 143, gliding down with steep decent with a forward slip maneuvers, let’s see how many people I can saves….

My Eye Test 2007

 

Last year July I did an eye checkup, well this year I get some diffrent result, everything is deteriorating . I think I have to go get my self a pair of glasses as it starts to affect my daily life.

Eye test result:

I doubt the accuracy of this information, I’m gonna get few more readings…

 

Edits: 3rd November: Today I taken another reading from guardian warehouse sales, from the data I collected, it seems to be vary significantly with the AXis.

5th November: Just read tons of material regarding the Ophthalmology, specifically in Eye examination and Eyeglass prescription that tells you Corrective lenses.

Random Walk: Theory of Stock Prices

The price of a stock is determined by the future profit a company earns.

The current stock price incorporates all the information that is available about future profit as a part of the stock price. What makes a stock price move is new information, which is unpredictable.

Today in my economy class I learn Norminal Interest Rate and Real Interest Rate.

The nominal interest rate (unadjusted for inflation) includes compensation for the lender’s lost value due to inflation, whereas the real interest rate excludes inflation. The real interest rate therefore expresses the cost of borrowed funds after the expected erosion of the value of those funds due to the rise in the general price level.

The relationship between real and nominal interest rates can be described in the equation:

(1 + r)(1 + i) = (1 + R) where r is the real interest rate, i is the inflation rate, and R is the nominal interest rate.[1]
A common approximation for the real interest rate is:
real interest rate = nominal interest rate – expected inflation
In this analysis, the nominal rate is the stated rate, and the real interest rate is the interest after the expected losses due to inflation. Since the future inflation rate can only be estimated, the ex ante and ex post (before and after the fact) real interest rates may be different; the premium paid to actual inflation may be higher or lower. In contrast, the nominal interest rate is known in advance.

Financial statement

During the past few days I had been hooked up with Robert Kiyosaki – Choose to be rich, it is a 12 audio CD  that covers pretty much Elementry Level in Financial Education.

The following article are taken from financialfreedomlibrary.com

Robert Kiyosaki stressed the importance of reading Financial Statements. When a person gets proficient at reading Financial Statements, that person is more equipped to be able to evaluate the fiscal health of a business before inves, or buying the company outright. Of equal value is the current business owner who knows how to read his own financial statements.

The keeping of regular Financial Statements enables a business to be able to spot trends in the company’s performance over time. If trends can be localized early enough, the business may begin to evaluate what factors led to the trend. If it’s a downward trend, the comapny might be able to reverse a previously made suboptimal decision, or further capitalize from upward trends.

Basic parts of the financial statement are as follows:

Income/Earnings Statement
Expense Statement
Balance Sheet

The first two are fairly self-explanatory. The balance sheet is a sort of snapshot of where your company is at the time you look at it. The balance sheet shows your company’s net worth, which in it’s basic form is income/assets minus expenses/liabilities.

Business Plan After a Life Plan

This is an article from home-based-business-solutions.com

Now that you have your business plan you are ready to begin your home based business right? Wrong! Conventional business strategies miss the most important aspect of the small business startup. There is one very important and vital part missing if you want an incredibly successful and profitable home based business. That step is the Life Plan.

A home based business is supposed to allow you the money, freedom and flexibility to live the lifestyle you want. Too many people try to create their business plan, find home business ideas or pick a product first, then try to fit their very existence around it. In actuality they have just created another “Job” for themselves.

I know that this is a huge mistake. I made that mistake with the first two home based businesses that I started. It didn’t take me very long to realize that I really needed to smarten up. I created “Jobs” for myself. The true secret of a small business startup is to create the home based business around you.

A Business is supposed to Benefit and Work for the Owner not the other way around.

Build your Life Plan first and then create your business plan around your Life Plan. If you create your home based business around your Life Plan it will fit you like a glove. You will be excited about your new small business startup. Home business ideas will flow and you will be on your way to fulfilling all of your needs. Set some time aside and put together a list of your personal goals.

It has been a year since I started my interest with Flight Simulation, right now I decided to show you one of my typical daily practice of flying. I usually do it with my dual monitor, virtual cockpit, a joystick.

Today I’ll be flying with a Boeing 747-400 at MTOW, weather condition fair, winds calm, visibility greater than 10 miles. It is going to be an easy flight so that I won’t be ended up with a crash with the recording.

The recording starts on final approach, 8nm south of subang runway 32 establishing with the localizer at 3,000 feet.

As you can see, I always missed the threashold when trying to perform a smooth flare, B747 is just too heavy to control :p
