Why do people grab their bags after a plane crash

November 21st, 2010

The plane has belly flopped, wheelless, on to the tarmac, skidding and spinning to a halt. It must be impossible to grasp what’s going on and we’re programmed to grab our wallet, passport, phone and house keys. Who can honestly say how any of us would react under that kind of stress?

But thank goodness the Emirates’ crew followed their training so well and shouted at people to leave their bags behind.

One minute, 23 seconds into the longer video of the evacuation, a passenger pans the camera over to film the engine fire. In your head you’re screaming at them to get away! Part of the aircraft did actually explode not long afterwards.

The efficiency with which the crew cleared the cabin undoubtedly saved lives.

“We are beginning to see a pattern when there are crashes, people take their luggage,” Ashley Nunes says.

In September last year a British Airways plane caught fire on the runway in Las Vegas. You can see in the report from the time that in the rush to get off,designer replica bags
some passengers have still taken their bags with them.

In July 2013 an Asiana plane crash landed in San Francisco. Again, the photos show that passengers have grabbed their bags during the evacuation.

“The swiss replica watches key to keeping people safe is speed getting your bag slows things down,” Mr Nunes says.

“These sorts of crashes are highly combustible and highly emotional. You’ve got people fearing for their lives and trying to get off the plane, but they can’t because someone is tinkering with their luggage.

“That could create conflict. A laptop or piece of luggage with a sharp edge could also, potentially, puncture the inflatable escape slide.”

So why do people do it?”There are lots of psychologists with opinions but no controlled studies of the phenomenon. You can’t recreate it in a lab setting because you can’t put people in a life or death situation,” Mr Nunes adds.

“People may just be used to getting their bag when a plane lands and it seems to be common no matter what part of the world you are from. These accidents included lots of people from all over Asia and the UK they all did the same thing.”

Should people film it?You might be thinking that someone shouldn’t be filming during an emergency. That just like grabbing a bag, it could potentially slow things down and put lives at risk. And you might be right. But this piece of footage could have a very positive effect on safety.

I’ve no doubt investigators will study it to see how people coped with a real drama compared to a practice drill. They may learn invaluable safety lessons for the future.

Looking at the footage, it appears that some people are instinctively grabbing the omega replica oxygen masks, for example. Why?

As far as I can make out, the person who shot the footage was on the tarmac 80 seconds or so after they began filming.

The blaze became so fierce it claimed the life of a firefighter, yet all the passengers and crew managed to get off safely. The 90 second rule seems to have saved many lives.


Older adult’s shift of interest towards emotional wellbeing has been sufficiently evidenced by breitling replica recent research. However, there has not been any respective research as regards the effects of this tendency of older adult on the experience of the discrete emotion of anger. The aim of the present review is to fill this gap, via the presentation of the most recent empirical data and some of the new theoretical approaches of emotional aging. Special emphasis is given on the socio emotional selectivity theory suggesting that, with advancing age, a person’s emotional life is optimized, due to the decrease of future time perspective and the subsequent reconsideration of life goals because of limited time perspective. In the light of this theory, the changes that take place during lifespan development and aging as regards the emotion of anger will be studied in depth.Sac lancel

Why Is Golf So Popular

April 2nd, 2010
posted by sfradmin 02:33

I am not sure exactly how many people play golf. I seem to recall somewhere that as many as fifty million do but that seems an awful lot of people to me. Whatever the number it is interesting trying to fake rolex determine why golf is so popular.

In this article I am going to give a couple of reasons why I believe it is. Initially I was going to try and put these in some sort of order of priority but to be honest I think we all put a different value on why we enjoy the game so much.

It can be played by all ages, both sexes and all shapes and sizes. Golf is unique in that it has a handicap system that levels the playing field.Replica hermes belt
It is me and my handicap versus the other guy and his handicap. On this basis I can theoretically beat the best player in the world. Dream on!

No two games are ever the same. Every time you go out to play it is a different course and different conditions. Variety is the spice of life.

It is played in the open air on some of the best real estate in the world. To me there is nothing quite so beautiful as walking the omega replica fairways of a well manicured golf course. Can you imagine playing at Augusta or The Old Course at St. Andrews? An experience of a lifetime I would think.

There are rules very strict rules but no umpires or referees and you are expected to be your own referee. Is this possibly the last of the true “gentleman’s” games (ladies included of course)? Which of the world’s top golfers are considered bad sports? None that I know of and this filters down all the way to club level. You will very seldom meet a not so nice person on the golf course.

There is no such thing as a perfect round. It is the most challenging game I have played with a great round one day and an absolute disaster the next. This alone is one of the main reasons why golf is so popular the continual drive to improve.

The perfect golf swing, like the perfect round, is an elusive animal. Even Tiger Woods has changed his swing over the years as many as three times I believe. It looks so easy yet so much can go wrong.

Life long friends are made in golf. I know because I have been playing golf with my friends for many years and I wouldn’t change that for anything. And the offshoot of this is the stories and golfing jokes that are told. Legends are created on golf courses.

It is quite simply the best game in the world and if you aren’t one of us it is time you started living!

I suppose I could go on and find a million other reasons as to why golf is so popular but I am sure I would just bore you so here is my suggestion: grab yourself a set of clubs (beg borrow or steal some) and get someone to take you out and have a hit around.

To understand why golf is so popular take some time to learn to play the game properly and remember the etiquette (those are the unwritten rules) is just as important as the rules.


year old son with Asperger

März 29th, 2010

“Minecraft” is essentially a title that lets you do almost anything and caters to different mindsets. The Creative Mode can allow the artistic to build gargantuan pieces of art from the game’s blocks and the hublot replica logical minded to make complex contraptions. As one Swedish mother reveled Saturday, it has helped her 9 year old son with Asperger’s to learn how to read and write plus improved his social skills.

“My son has Asperger’s” Anna Stam wrote on her personal blog. “He is, like all children, wonderful and amazing with his unique strengths and weaknesses that must be overcome. But for him, like for many children (and adults) with Asperger’s, obstacles can be especially difficult and what is easy might be additionally easy.”

Asperger’s Syndrome is marked by a pattern of difficulties for those diagnosed such as problems with non verbal and verbal communications, social interaction and a preoccupation with a narrow subject. While there is no delay in intellect or language development, how those diagnosed with Asperger’s interact with the rolex replica world around them is affected.

Ms. Stam explained how she uses visual aides to help her 9 year old son with his schedule and activities but notes that the Swedish school system has difficulties providing a learning platform for her child. That’s when she began looking at games, virtual reality headset
particularly “Minecraft” to help him.

“I dare say that Minecraft is by far one of the most educating digital tools we can find on the market today,” she wrote after describing how gaming helps her son with his social interaction skills and confidence. “It is actually much better than many products by educational publishers in the same field. But it takes some ingenuity, time and dedication to understand the mindset.”

The mother and son play in Creative Mode with “Minecraft” where they can avoid the monsters and survival skills and focus on building and learning. In game signs are created as an excuse to practice reading and writing as well as to classify things in the world around them. It also allows her son to practice translating English to Swedish as he plays with others.

“During the game, I can use the chat feature to write brief instructions to my son where I encourage him to do certain tasks,” Stam explained. “He reads my chat and gives response by writing his own commands to me. At first this was a little frustrating for him because he wanted to be able to both read and write back quickly. But the game was so motivating in itself that he struggled with the keys more and more. Finally things went much faster. I have also started writing down common English phrases and asking him in English to find objects or do things in the surroundings.

“Since Minecraft is a fairly complex game and you cannot learn everything overnight, it also encourages you to search for information from other sources. My son has learned how to use YouTube, Google and Wikipedia as a natural way to look for information that can be applied in the game. He has also started to produce and publish his own videos on YouTube, teaching others about the game.”

We’ve written about the “Minecraft” being used for education before, particularly with the “MinecraftEdu” program being created by a group of teachers and developers. Stam’s tale is heartwarming and also brings up some excellent points in the wake of the Sandy Hook school shooting tragedy and the rush to point fingers at video games as a cause by politicians and the NRA. There is much more to the video game industry than violent video games and there are parents and teachers out there looking for every tool available to help children learn whether they have special needs or not.
