Las emergencias de RyanAir

domingo, 26 de agosto de 2012

No nos equivoquemos. A mi, personalmente, no
me gustan nada algunas de las tácticas de
RyanAir, o los procedimientos presuntamente
engañosos de pago con tarjeta, o las
limitaciones de equipaje, o la forma en que
presuntamente se trata a algunos de sus
empleados, o como presiona a operadores de
aeropuertos para obtener privilegios, pero están
en su completo derecho de exprimir a quien se
deje siempre y cuando cumplan con todas las
leyes, tanto de índole laboral como por supuesto
de seguridad aérea.
Pero aunque una compañia nos caiga
especialmente mal (y es obvio que RyanAir se
lleva varios premios en esta categoria), no se
pueden andar soltando todo tipo de
barbaridades en los medios como las que se
están oyendo y leyendo en el ultimo mes con
respecto a lo sucedido el pasado dia 26 de Julio.

Integrated Hypersonics - DARPA Tries Again

Integrated Hypersonics - DARPA Tries Again:
If at first you don't succeed, make it harder then try again. That seems to be the premise behind the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's new Integrated Hypersonics (IH) program.
IH is a follow-on to DARPA's Falcon program, which failed in two attempts to fly the HTV-2 hypersonic glider. So much of a follow-on, in fact, that the IH program is to begin with a third flight of the HTV-2.
The new program is planned to culminate in 2017 with the flight of the Hypersonic X-Plane (HX), to demonstrate technology not only for a prompt global strike weapon, but potentially hypersonic aircraft missions "such as time-critical, survivable transport", says DARPA.

The first man to walk on the moon, Neil Armstrong, passed away Saturday afternoon as a result of complication from complications following recent coronary surgery at the age of 82.... with as firm a place in history as any man. Humble, quiet, thoughtful and the consummate professional, Armstrong looked upon his place in history as a gift not to be squandered but to be honored, and indeed, that's the way he lived his life since his return to Earth.
