Implement Fuedualism and suddenly no one can leave the country. Not the side effect I expected from that issue.

Every Safjian citizen eats 67 bananas a day.

Every day, Safj consumes 2.27 trillion bananas.

Every year, Safj consumes 828.80 trillion bananas. That's 276 trillion pounds of bananas.

Assuming maximum yield of 50 metric tonnes per 2 1/2 acres, it would take 1.2 billion acres of land to grow that many bananas every year, roughly half the size of the United States.

This has been Fun Banana Math with Safj!

Cool! But there's a predictable side effect of eating that much bananas every day. Every Safjian citizen will produce a lot of poop daily. So we'd like to import Safjian manure as fertilizer for our farms and we'll be paying for it with rolls of Toilet Paper. Since the Coronavirus is causing a Toilet Paper shortage everywhere that should be an acceptable trade, yeah? :p

And we've got lots of Toilet Paper cause we've been importing waste papers from other nations and recycling them into Toilet Papers and other paper products. :)

Thanks for the fun banana math lesson! :)

The speedy spread of the Coronavirus took us by surprise. Kind of like Khan and crew on the Reliant and then Kirk and crew on the Enterprise when they took down the Reliant's shields with the override.

Emperor Varian Von Richthofen (Arian)

The Battle of Mutara Nebula is a great piece of music. I just realized I forgot to add the Enterprise-E onto the poll. I added the Kelvin verse and accidentally deleted the TNG movies. To avoid creating the poll a 3rd time, write your vote for the Ent-E down below if that's your pick.

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®

A thought for Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®:

“There can be no keener revelation of a society’s soul than the way in which it treats its children.” — Nelson Mandela

Kids are the future. Camp Fire stands ready to help. This organization, born as Camp Fire Girls in 1910, has embarked on a mission to “guide young people on their journey to self-discovery.” What can we do to help? It’s simple, really. Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®, celebrated on March 21 this year, encourages adults to write a young person a note — letting them know just why they’re so amazing! (Verbal messages are fine too.) Our thoughtful words can spark a life-changing journey for a child. Let’s get started

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® timeline

2019
Meet the "Incredibles"

Camp Fire recognized three kids chosen for their resilience, determination, courage, compassion, and joy. They are Ohio fifth-grader Hala Khalil, who has quickly learned English after arriving from Jordan; aspiring drummer Jessica Albertson; and talented baseball player Davy Bradley.

2012
Thrive!

The organization taught kids and teens SEL (Social Emotional Learning) skills via the new Thrive{ology} framework, a research-based approach for youth success.

2010
A century of great kids

Camp Fire celebrated 100 years. Participants from coast to coast lit campfires (of course!) at the same time to mark the occasion.

1997
A new day for kids

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® began as a nationwide effort urging adults to write about the awesome children in their lives.

1975
Girls rule! (And so do boys.)

Camp Fire, America's first multiracial, multicultural, and nonsectarian organization for girls, went co-ed. There are now a total of 54 chapters, or "councils."

Absolutely Incredible Kid Day® Activities

Write a note
Simply tell a special young person in your life what makes her/him so, well, absolutely incredible. Be specific. Stick the note in their lunchbox (if they have one), or anywhere else they might look. Not feeling old school? You can always post on their favorite social media page. Or just tell them in person.

Consider a Camp Fire camp
You'll be surprised at the variety. There are camps for the LGBTQ community, as well as autism camps, grief camps, special needs camps — and many more. Kids learn crucial life skills while participating in a wide array of fun activities.

Plan for a "Wohelo Award"
"Wohelo” stands for work, health, and love — critical Camp Fire values for over a century. The award represents the organization's highest achievement. Kids in grades 9-12 work hard to complete an intensive project based on their passion. Looks pretty cool on a college application, too!

5 Spectacular, Inspiring, Confident Kids You Seriously Need To Know...Like Right Now

Tanitoluwa Adewumi
He's the 8-year-old Nigerian refugee who just won the "kindergarten through third grade" category at the New York State chess championship. All this, despite living with his family in a homeless shelter.

Dafne Almazán
Originally from Mexico, Dafne became a psychologist...at age 13! Next up — Harvard, where, at age 17, she's the first minor to be enrolled in a post-graduate degree program in the last 100 years.

Elisabeth Anisimow
The Los Angeles-based artist began selling her paintings at age 7. Now 12, she turned her parents' garage into a studio. Elisabeth hopes to study art at the Sorbonne in Paris.

Hunter Wallace
This Texas teenager, born with cerebral palsy, holds a prominent place on his high school wrestling team. (He's the captain.) Hunter hopes to inspire others with his inspiring viral workout video

Charley Thomas
This 10-year-old British boy can recite the mathematical constant known as "Pi" (π) to an astonishing 258 decimal places.

Why We Love Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®

AIKD focuses on the "now."
Yes, when it comes to our young people, it's absolutely crucial to plan for the future. Still, Camp Fire hopes to inspire kids to take on leadership roles right now. Why wait? Children have unlimited potential.

Life lessons
Camp Fire remains committed to helping kids "use their voice and find their sparks." Each young person has different passions. Exploring them early can greatly improve their chances of success. Let's help kids figure out who they are on Absolutely Incredible Kid Day®.

"Thrive{ology}"
It's a philosophy that urges us to help kids thrive now. Thrive{ology} involves identifying passions, pushing past obstacles, focusing on goals, and taking time to reflect.

National Common Courtesy Day

With ever-busy lives, we often forget that simple things can make a difference. National Common Courtesy Day is a great way to remind ourselves that the world is better off when we show gratitude and graciousness in both big and small ways. Hey, it only takes a small gesture to be a big hero. Remember to say “please” and “thank you” on March 21. It could make a world of difference!

National Common Courtesy Day timeline
2011
IITTI was formed

An organization named IITTI was formed to test employee etiquette in interviewees.

1922
Emily Post began documenting etiquette

Emily Post was a famous author who wrote a best-selling book called "Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home."

18th Century
The Enlightenment Era and politeness

Politeness, certain artistic standards, and behaviors started becoming markers of affluence and upward mobility.

551–479 BC
Confucius shapes morality and manners in China

The Chinese teacher, philosopher, and politician fostered a mindset that shaped morality, correctness in relationships, and justice.

3rd Millennium BC
Ptahhotep wrote his Maxims

The ancient Egyptian Vizier Ptahhotep wrote a book of Maxims that discussed how to treat others and exhibit self-control.

How to Observe National Common Courtesy Day

Introduce yourself to someone new or shy
We've all been new to work or school and probably felt intimidated or left out. Introduce yourself to someone new, shy, or who is sitting alone. You could make a friend and you'll make someone feel included.

Remember the small actions
Giving up your seat for someone who needs it more than you do, holding the door open, and replacing the roll of toilet paper for a new one are all great small ways to show courtesy to others. Best of all, they're free!

Donate time or money to a meaningful cause (or a friend)
Maybe there's a charity that means a lot to you. March 21 is a great day to volunteer for this cause or donate a few extra dollars to whatever piques your interest. You can also call a friend you haven't had the chance to talk to, buy them a cup of coffee, or help them with something they might need.

Why National Common Courtesy Day is Important

You can participate in many small ways
Courtesy means different things to everyone. Most holidays involved giving gifts or buying something, but Common Courtesy Day involves giving up your seat for someone who needs it more, not cutting in line, saying please and thank you or making more coffee if you drank the last cup. It's easy to participate and contribute to this day.

Doing good for others actually has benefits
Scientific evidence shows that doing something good for others benefits your health. Volunteering and mentoring are some of the biggest examples of doing good for others, but random acts of kindness—including the oft-forgotten display of common courtesy—is a good way to make the world a better place for everyone.

Good deeds are contagious
Creating a respectful environment begets you more respect. This is especially true at home and at work. Show courtesy to the people around you and pretty soon they'll follow your example.

International Day of Forests

Roosevelt called them “the lungs of the Earth,” Robert Frost and millions of poets were inspired by them, and Sting is fighting to save them. We’re talking about forests. And celebrities aren’t the only ones who feel a strong connection with them. We all do. Just a simple walk in the woods can calm and invigorate our senses. In fact, the forests are so crucial to the future of our planet that the UN declared March 21 to be the International Day of Forests. For many years now, this amazing global celebration has been creating awareness all over the world about the importance of forests. They are one of our greatest natural treasures that we must preserve and protect.

International Day of Forests timeline

2013
The First International Day Of Forests

The world celebrates this important celebration dedicated to our Earth for the first time!

November 28, 2012
UN Designates March 21

The UN passes a resolution to observe March 21 as the International Day of Forests.

November 1971
World Forestry Day established

At the 16th session of the Conference of the Food and Agriculture Organization, the "States members" voted to establish "World Forestry Day" on March 21 of each year.

How to Observe International Day of Forests

Plant a tree or start a victory garden
Go ahead! Do your bit to make your city a little greener. Even buying a little plant for your home counts!

Go hiking in the woods or a state park
There isn’t a better time to get out, bond with nature and drive away those winter blues because spring has just begun.

Make a leaf scrapbook
A great activity for the entire family. Scrapbooking and recording interesting facts is a great way to teach children about the different type of trees and their importance.

Why International Day of Forests is Important

Forests are the lungs of the Earth
Forests are like giant, green sponges all over the globe, through which our Earth breathes. Trees and plants take in carbon dioxide and give us oxygen, cleaning our air.

The world needs wood
And not just for construction, paper, furniture, etc. As the world’s population grows, with it the hunger for energy. Currently wood accounts for approximately 45 % of the world’s renewable energy supply. Encouraging and modernizing this industry can help find new and sustainable ways to produce bioenergy.

Healthy forests mean a healthy environment
Forests trap carbon to prevent global warming. They stabilize the climate, control atmospheric temperatures, protect watershed areas, regulate the water cycle, and enrich the soil. And that’s not all that forests do for our environment!

World Down Syndrome Day

Did you know that Down Syndrome—a disorder that occurs when there is a duplication of the twenty-first chromosome—affects approximately 6,000 babies at birth every year? So on March 21—a date chosen to represent the chromosomal defection found in Down Syndrome (the twenty-first day of the third month)—celebrate World Down Syndrome Day, an event created to raise public awareness, promote inclusivity, encourage advocacy, and support the wellbeing of those living with Down Syndrome.

World Down Syndrome Day timeline

2012

This year marks the first year that World Down Syndrome Day is to be celebrated annually on March 21.

How to Observe World Down Syndrome Day

Get involved
Show your support by attending an event in honor of World Down Syndrome Day or donating to a charity online. Step it up a notch by promoting your involvement on social media with #WDSD18 to inspire others to take the same initiative.

Incorporate blue and yellow
As the designated colors of the cause, blue and/or yellow should be utilized on World Syndrome Day. You can show your support by wearing something blue or yellow, icing cupcakes with blue and yellow frosting for schools, decorating an office with blue and yellow flowers or balloons, or filling bowls with blue and yellow M&Ms—it doesn’t matter how you rock these colors, just be sure you do.

Organize an event
Take initiative and organize your own event that will raise money and awareness for Down Syndrome. Planning a walk, holding a bake sale, hosting a raffle or setting up a school fair are all fun events that will benefit those with Down Syndrome.

Why World Down Syndrome Day is Important

It promotes awareness
Down Syndrome effects approximately 400,000 families in the United States alone. World Down Syndrome Day helps educate the public on what Down Syndrome is and how to encourage those with Down Syndrome to participate in daily activities so they can live a full life and play a vital role in their community.

It empowers people with Down Syndrome
The accomplishments and contributions of people with Down Syndrome are often overlooked. However, this event highlights the positive difference they make in their community and gives them the recognition they deserve.

It helps raise money for research
Each year, one in 700 babies in the United States is born with Down Syndrome. However, the cause is still unknown. By donating to Down Syndrome charities, you’re having an impact on those currently living with Down Syndrome and helping get one step closer to finding the cause.

World Poetry Day

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”

Writer Elizabeth Barrett Browning dedicated this iconic poem to her husband Robert Browning, but her famous sonnet could just as easily declare love for poetry itself. We can all do that March 21 on World Poetry Day.

The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) founded this day in 1999 to “give fresh recognition and impetus to national, regional and international poetry movements.” The group hoped to inspire the celebration of poetry all over the world, encouraging reading, writing, and teaching.

Poetry uses rhythms and imagery to elicit emotion and the imagination of the reader. Poetry can rhyme, using what are called meters of long and short syllables. Some poetry, written in what’s called “free verse,” doesn’t employ rhyme or meters. Poems are broken into stanzas, which are like paragraphs, and can be up to twelve lines long. We believe the first known poem appeared 4,000 years ago in Babylon. Today countless types of poems are available to enjoy, including haikus, limericks, sonnets, and ballads.

How to Observe World Poetry Day

Write a poem
What better way to celebrate and promote poetry than by writing one of your own poems? If you don’t know where to start, try something small first. A haiku is a simple, three-line poem of five, then seven, then five syllables. Haikus can be funny or serious, and typically focus on nature. Once you’ve got the hang of that, try your hand at free verse. A poem to your secret love, perhaps?

Visit the American Poetry Museum
Check out the American Poetry Museum in Washington DC, a building dedicated to celebrating poetry all year long! It was founded in 2004, and is known as one of the first of its kind to collect and feature poetry. The museum offers special exhibits to learn about the art form and famous poets, and hosts events and workshops for patrons to learn even more.

Host a poetry slam
Gather up your most literary friends for a night of fun and rhymes. Turn your living room into a makeshift coffee shop and prepare to give snaps to the performers. Friends can read one of their own works or one of their favorites from another author. No need for prizes (unless you want to get competitive!)—just get together to share in the celebration of poetry.

Why World Poetry Day is Important

Poems are for everyone!
Sometimes people are hesitant to try out poetry, thinking it can be hard to understand. But have no fear—there’s a poem out there for you! Thinking about simplifying your life and taking some time to relax? Read the works of Henry David Thoreau. Need to read something about triumph and overcoming adversity? Try Maya Angelou. Need something a little silly, to remind you of your childhood? Check out Shel Silverstein: “If you’re a bird, be an early early bird. But if you’re a worm, sleep late.”

Poetry is all around us!
Are you a big fan of music? Then you’re a secret poetry fan! The cadence and rhythms of poetry are just like those of your favorite pop song or rap. With a few extra beats and melodies behind it, songs convey emotional messages and meanings, just like poetry. They even employ a lot of the same writing devices like metaphors and alliteration.

It starts a new generation of poetry lovers
On World Poetry Day, teachers and classrooms around the world take time to celebrate poems and poets and get their students excited about the writing style. Poetry competitions, poetry slams, and readings are held to let new and emerging poets try out their work and showcase their talents!

Coronavirus can live on surfaces for days. But it can't travel through the mail, experts say
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/03/21/can-coronavirus-travel-though-mail-experts-say-no/2862947001/

The World Health Organization offered similar guidance saying it is safe to receive packages from any area: "The likelihood of an infected person contaminating commercial goods is low and the risk of catching the virus that causes COVID-19 from a package that has been moved, travelled, and exposed to different conditions and temperature is also low," the WHO said in a Q&A about the virus.

Thank God!

***** Texas Saturday Breakfast *****

WeeHa! It is Saturday breakfast time again! In honor of Spring, today will be Edible Flowers Breakfast! This once-in-a-lifetime breakfast service will include edible flowers in every dish. The tents will be festooned with a splash of color from wildflowers from all over NewTexas. The highlights, of course, are the State Flower, the Bluebonnet, but there will be plenty of Indian paintbrushes, pink evening primrose and numerous other Texas wildflowers that are sprouting up everywhere right now. All patrons availing themselves of this special event will be started off with complementary Elderberry Flower Croissants served with Orange Blossom Honey Butter! Man, these suckers are fragrant and yummy too. We will be serving a variety of omelets, all made with the freshest, Grade A, farm-fresh, organic eggs. First up will be the super-cheesy Chive Blossom Omelet oozing with melting Swiss cheese and plenty of tangy Chive Blossoms. We have a delicately perfumed French Lavender Omelet gently sautéed in hand-churned, sweet butter made on site. But, if you want to go gonzo, we have the Super Green Omelet with Basil Flowers, Thyme Flowers, and Dill Flowers and mushrooms to bring a little earthiness to all the aromatics. All of these are really good! We will be serving up Rosemary Flower Honey Walnut Biscuits and Apple Lavender Muffins. We will have a wide variety of flavored butter to choose from - Orange Blossom Honey Butter, Lavender Honey Butter, and Sweet Lemon Butter. If you need a little more substance, we have Lemon Apple Blossom Pancakes with Blueberry Compote. There are Honeysuckle Pancakes that are just a touch sweet too. Meat options are limited today, but we stayed up all night grinding Sage Blossom Sausage and Rosemary Flower Sausage. These fry up well and are quite tasty. There will be an expansive Floral Tea Bar today with all teas made and garnished with edible flowers. All the base teas - White, Yellow, Green, Black, and Oolong - will be available to create your ultimate tea experience. All servers have been educated in the subtle nuances of tea and will be able to make your cup a most memorable one. We have fragrant Jasmine Flower, gentle Rose Flower, and exotic Lotus Blossom. Hibiscus Tea is always nice as is Violet Tea. For something a little more familiar to Texans, we have Marigold Tea and Texas Dandelion Sweet Tea. The Juice Bar is closed, but we will be stirring up Tang topped with an Orange Blossom on request. Of course, The Never Ending Urn of Coffee is full and ready to help you wash it all down. Texas coffee doesn't get much better. Come on down and start your day right Texas. You know you want to!®

***** Texas Chat Reminder *****

The Texas Weekly Chat Session will be Saturday (TODAY) at High Noon Texas Time (CDT) ***Saturday***. And, if you can't be there right at Noon, that is Ok, Texas Chat usually runs 3, 4, 5 hours with some Chats running as high as 7 or 8 hours.

The Texas Chat Site is here: http://texasregion.net/blab70/login.php

Please register with your nation name. This is a great opportunity for nations old and new to Texas to find out what is going on! We chat, we debate, we talk about the weather, we talk about stuff we like, stuff we hate, random stuff and more stuff. But, it is never stuffy. Usually, it is about meeting your fellow Texans and talking about the latest and most interesting stuff in NationStates at the moment. But then again, sometimes NationStates does not even come up. It is wide-open chatting with peeps from around The World both IRL and NS. It is Texans, EuroTexans, WannabeTexans, ex-Texans, and plenty of Friends of Texans. We have it all and all are welcome. Texas Chat, 781 weeks and running! For the math-challenged, that is over 15½ years! Check it out! Good stuff!

World Water Day

Water is the building block of life. Here in the United States, it’s easy to take water for granted — it just comes out of the faucet anytime you want it. Yet, all over the globe there are people who don’t have access to clean, safe drinking water. March 22 is World Water Day, a day dedicated to drawing attention to the water related issues that humans in almost every country. Created by the United Nations, the goal of World Water Day is to bring aide to people who truly need it across borders.

How to Observe World Water Day

Clean up your local water source
Grab some friends and form your own water clean up crew. This may seem like a small and insignificant step, but litter and garbage are very hazardous to wildlife. Also, the small rivers and streams near you likely feed into a larger body of water. If you don’t pick up that discarded six pack ring, it could find its way into the ocean and become very bad news for a fish or seagull.

Try to reduce your water footprint
It may not seem like you use a lot of water in your daily life, but you’d be surprised how much water it takes to perform household tasks. The average American shower uses about 17 gallons of water, while a single toilet flush uses a staggering 7 gallons. If you’re interested in decreasing your daily water usage, there are many products – such as low flow toilets and shower heads – that can help you do just that.

Organize an event to raise awareness
If you want to see a grand and immediate impact, you could organize a charity event. All over the world, communities hold events for World Water Day. You could focus on simply raising awareness about any number of the water related issues we face, or you could even collect donations for areas with extreme need.

Why World Water Day is Important

It affects millions of people
An estimated 780 million people live without clean, accessible drinking water. Drinking contaminated water can lead to a host of life threatening diseases. This may seem like a third world problem, but Flint, Michigan showed us that water problems even plague the United States.

Water pollution affects wildlife
It’s not only humans that require access to clean water. Every year, countless animals die as a result of water pollution. Pollution can occur in many ways, from physical litter to wastewater and chemicals runoff, which causes the water to become toxic to the animals that depend on it for drinking and habitation.

Water relates to many other environmental issues
World Water Day has a yearly theme, such as "Nature for Water," which is dedicated to finding natural solutions to our water crises. Many of the environmental problems we are coping with are intertwined — climate change and ecosystem degradation are related to, and sometimes direct causes, of water pollution, floods, and droughts.

National Goof Off Day

Bueller… Bueller? What do everyone’s favorite All-American movie hero and your little sister have in common? They both like to goof off, of course! Ferris Bueller likes to goof off so much he skipped an entire day of school. We don’t even want to know how goofy your sister is. Regardless, March 22 is the day we celebrate goofballs in all their forms—and take a lesson. That’s right, March 22 is National Goof Off Day! Get ready to go wild … and maybe re-watch Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.

National Goof Off Day Activities

Be silly
There are a lot of really serious people in the world, and that’s because the social anxiety is real. It’s easy to believe that you’ll get judged by your friends if you let your guard down and crack a few jokes. It’s hard to get over the fear of making a fool of yourself! However, National Goof Off Day is the prime time to conquer that fear and act silly with some friends. We promise they’ll laugh along with you.

Rewatch your favorite comedy
What better way to celebrate being goofy than with some of Hollywood’s greatest professional comedians? If you’re into physical comedy, rewatch "Singin’ in the Rain" and watch Cosmo make a fool of himself. If you’re into stoner humor, watch "Pineapple Express." Our list of movies is endless—and extremely entertaining.

Leave the work until tomorrow
National Goof Off Day is the day for everything silly … and that doesn’t include work (unless you work as a comedian). Take a personal day and go out and enjoy that spring sunshine! If we’ve learned anything from Ferris Bueller, it’s that sometimes a personal day is much-needed. Who knows—you might even get to star in your own flash mob! If you do, we’d love to see it.

Why We Love National Goof Off Day

It’s always good to de-stress
Life can be so hectic. You go to work for eight or nine hours, come home, and have to cook dinner. If you’re a parent, you have to take care of your child on top of all of this exertion. This can be extremely tiring and demoralizing. But on National Goof Off Day, you get to take a break from all that craziness. Have a good time, and let a little stress out!

You can test out your jokes
National Goof Off Day is prime time to let loose all of those puns you’ve had stored up in your brain. Since everyone’s goofing off, it’s time to test out a couple of new jokes! Do some audience research and see which jokes you’re going to take into everyday life, and which should die after the day is done. It’s much less awkward to tell a bad joke when everyone’s doing it.

We get to see everyone’s silly side
Everyone has that one coworker who’s too serious. We feel like we can’t relate to them. Why are they not laughing at our jokes? However, on National Goof Off Day, even they get silly. You’ll get to see a completely new side of them that you haven’t seen before. And we promise, you’ll bond with them. Work will get more productive and fun!

Vincent's Sunday Surprise Beverage Bonanza

Howdy Dudes and Dudettes of Texas!

Today’s Sunday Surprise Beverage is the Shamrock Shake! First I add green mint chocolate chip ice cream and milk into the blender. Then I add some peppermint extract to give the minty flavor a boost and green food coloring to give the drink a richer green coloring. The ingredients are then blended together in the blender. The Shamrock Shakes are served in milkshake glasses with vanilla ice cream sprinkled with edible green glitter and edible green shamocks floating on top.

I hope y’all enjoy today’s Sunday Surprise Beverage Texans. Yeehaw! :)

Aeroflot Flight 593: 23 March 1994 Russian Airbus A-310 crashes in Siberia

The plane that crashed was the Aeroflot Flight 593 and as an Aviation Enthusiast, Armchair/Flight Simulator Pilot and Armchair Accident Investigator, I will never forget this particular plane crash because the reason why this plane crashed was incredibly asinine. The relief pilot was Yaroslav Vladimirovich Kudrinsky. Relief pilot Kudrinsky was taking his two children Eldar and Yana on their first international flight, and they were brought to the cockpit while he was on duty. He should not have allowed them to handle the controls but he did. His son Eldar caused the autopilot to partially disengage and that was what caused the crash.

What Happened To Aeroflot Flight 593:

On 23 March 1994, the jet aircraft was en route from Sheremetyevo International Airport in Moscow to Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong with 75 occupants aboard, of whom 63 were passengers. Most of the passengers were businessmen from Hong Kong and Taiwan who were looking for economic opportunities in Russia.

The captain of Flight 593 was Andrey Viktorovich Danilov, 40, who was hired by Aeroflot in November 1992. He had accrued over 9,675 hours of flight time, including 950 hours in the A310, of which 895 hours were as captain. The first officer was Igor Vasilyevich Piskaryov, 33, hired by Aeroflot in October 1993, who had 5,885 hours of flight time, including 440 hours in the A310. The relief pilot was Yaroslav Vladimirovich Kudrinsky, 39, who was hired by Aeroflot in November 1992; he had over 8,940 flying hours, including 907 hours in the A310. Kudrinsky also had experience in the Yakovlev Yak-40, Antonov An-12, and Ilyushin Il-76. There were nine flight attendants on board the plane.

With the autopilot active, Kudrinsky, against regulations, let the children sit at the controls. First, his daughter Yana took the pilot's left front seat. Kudrinsky adjusted the autopilot's heading to give her the impression that she was turning the plane, though she actually had no control of the aircraft. Shortly thereafter, Kudrinsky's son Eldar occupied the pilot's seat. Unlike his sister, Eldar applied enough force to the control column to contradict the autopilot for 30 seconds. This caused the flight computer to switch the plane's ailerons to manual control while maintaining control over the other flight systems. A silent indicator light came on to alert the pilots to this partial disengagement. The pilots, who had previously flown Russian-designed planes which had audible warning signals, apparently failed to notice it.

Eldar was the first to notice a problem, when he observed that the plane was banking right. Shortly after, the flight path indicator changed to show the new flight path of the aircraft as it turned. Since the turn was continuous, the resulting predicted flight path drawn on screen was a 180-degree turn. This indication is similar to those shown when in a holding pattern, where a 180-degree turn is required to remain in a stable position. This confused the pilots for nine seconds, during which time the plane banked past a 45-degree angle to almost 90 degrees, steeper than the design allowed. The A310 cannot turn this steeply while maintaining height, and the plane started to lose altitude quickly. The increased g-forces on the pilots and crew made it extremely difficult for them to regain control. The autopilot, which no longer controlled the ailerons, used its other controls in order to compensate, pitching the nose up and increasing thrust; as a result the plane began to stall; the autopilot, unable to cope, disengaged completely. A second, louder indicator light came on to alert the pilots of the complete disengagement, and this time they did notice it. At the same time, the autopilot's display screen went blank. To recover from the stall, an automatic system lowered the nose and put the plane into a nosedive. The reduced g-forces enabled Kudrinsky to re-take his seat. Piskaryov then managed to pull out of the dive, but over-corrected, putting the plane in an almost vertical ascent, again stalling the plane, which fell out of the sky into a corkscrew dive. Although Kudrinsky and Piskaryov regained control and leveled out the wings, they did not know how far they had descended during the crisis and their altitude by then was too low to recover. The plane crashed at high vertical speed, estimated at 70 m/s (14,000 ft/min). All 75 occupants died from the impact.

The aircraft crashed with its landing gear up, and all passengers had been prepared for an emergency, as they were strapped into their seats. No distress calls were made prior to the crash. Despite the struggles of both pilots to save the aircraft, it was later concluded that if they had just let go of the control column, the autopilot would have automatically taken action to prevent stalling, thus avoiding the accident.

The wreckage was located on a remote hillside in the Kuznetsk Alatau mountain chain, approximately 20 kilometres (12 mi) east of Mezhdurechensk, Kemerovo Oblast, Russia; the flight data recorders were found on the second day of searching. Families of western victims placed flowers on the crash site, while families of Chinese victims scattered pieces of paper with messages written on them around the crash site.

The events of Flight 593 were featured in "Kid in the Cockpit", a Season 3 (2005) episode of the Canadian TV series Mayday (called Air Emergency and Air Disasters in the U.S. and Air Crash Investigation in the UK and elsewhere around the world). The flight was also included in a Mayday Season 6 (2007) Science of Disaster special titled "Who's Flying the Plane?"

Short Investigation Video:
Aeroflot Flight 593 - DISASTER BREAKDOWN

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pc50kWJBcx4

Investigation / Findings:

2 Hours after the crash the search was begun to locate the crash of Flight 593. It was soon clear there were no survivors of the crash putting the total of fatalities to 75 people. Initial speculation was that it was a form of terrorist act, but was soon ruled out after the analysis of the cockpit voice recorder. The Russian government authorities conducted the investigation and determined that the main cause of the crash was due to pilot error.

-The poor decision made by the Captain to allow his children to be at the controls and manipulate the aircraft even though the aircraft was on autopilot was a key factor that leads to the crash.

-The lack of authority shown when the aircraft was beginning to lose its direction was another element that should have been addressed.

-Complacency with the condition of the flight as well as not following protocols in the situation experienced further doomed the flight.

-The crew’s unfamiliarity with the foreign built Airbus A310, the crew of Flight 593 was not aware of an aspect to the aircraft, that when force was enforced on the controls that the auto pilot will partially disengage, without a warning sound.

Morals of the Story/Lessons from this Incident:

1. Children do not belong in the cockpit of an aircraft and should therefore not be allowed to be there.
2. Do not allow your children to pretend to fly the plane if you are the pilot.
3. If you are piloting a new type of plane and are unfamiliar with it, you must learn everything you can about the plane and become familiarized with the controls before the scheduled flight.

In Memory of Aeroflot Flight 593:
May everyone who perished when Aeroflot Flight 593 crashed Rest In Peace. Amen.

Flight Attendants: There were nine flight attendants on board the plane.

Reference: Wikipedia. Aeroflot Flight 593. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aeroflot_Flight_593

On the 23rd of March in 1944 Airbus A310 took off from Sheremetyevo International Airport with 63 passengers, most of whom were businessmen from Asia, and 12 members of the crew. Flight 593 was due to arrive at Kai Tak International Airport in Hong Kong. The relief pilot, Yaroslav Kudrinsky, took his two children Eldar and Yana for 4 day holiday. While being on the duty he let them visit the cockpit. The autopilot was on so Kudrinsky left his seat and allowed his daughter to play with control column, changing the course slightly so that she had an impression of flying the airplane. Then his 15-year-old son 'took over'. Unlike his sister he applied much force to the column. After a while Eldar pointed out that the plane was turning right (CVR transcript):

Eldar: Why's it turning?
Kudrinsky: It's turning by itself?
Eldar: Yes ...
Kudrinsky: I don't know why it's turning
Eldar: Is it going off-course?
Piskarev: We're entering a holding pattern
Kudrinsky: Really?
Piskarev: Of course.
Makarov: Guys ...

Piskarev was a co-pilot and Makarov a pilot flying as a passenger.

While the pilots were trying to figure out what was happening, the plane was banking to almost 90 degrees (usually it doesn't exceed 45 degrees). As a result it started to lose altitude quickly. G-forces pushed everybody into their seats making it difficult for both pilots to take control. The only person who was able to reach control column was Eldar:

Kudrinsky: Hold it, hold the stick, hold it
Makarov: The speed ...
Piskarev: The other way!
Kudrinsky: The other way, turn it left
Piskarev: Left!
Kudrinsky: Left... The other way!
Piskarev: Left!
Eldar: I am turning it left ...
Piskarev: To the right!
Kudrinsky: To the right
Piskarev: Can't you see, or what?

Alarms begin to sound.

Kudrinsky: Eldar, get out! Get out, Eldar, get out ... Get out, Eldar, get out, get out ... get out ... [gasping] get out ... Get out, I say!

But Eldar could not leave the seat as his weight was twice as normal.

The plane is close to stalling. A stall is a situation when the aircraft flies with his nose too high (often with too low speed). It leads to the crash unless nose is pushed down. Airbus is equipped with anti-stall system, which worked. It put the plane in a steep dive. It allowed Piskarev to gain control of it partly. He recovered plane from the dive and deceleration enabled Kudrinsky to take the captain's seat. However the Airbus was in stall.

Piskarev: We're coming out, coming out, coming out! Right! Foot to the right! Speed is high, reduce power!
Kudrinsky: Done
Piskarev: Gently! ... S***, not again
Kudrinsky: Don't turn it right! The speed [unintelligible]
Piskarev: There!
Kudrinsky: We'll come out in a sec. Everything's all right ... Gently [unintelligible], gently ... Pull up gently!

But the altitude was too low to recover. The plane crashed in Siberia. No one survived.

After listening to CVR recordings and examination of the wreckage, the investigators were shocked. They understood what had happened. One of the Airbus features allowed the pilot to partly disengage the Autopilot after pushing the control column to one side for 30 seconds. That was why the plane banked. One of the saddest conclusions was that the flight could have been saved. When the pilots regained control they should have let go of the column. The plane's system would have recovered it from the stall.

Read factbook

Relief pilot Kudrinsky allowed first his daughter Yana and then his son Eldar to occupy the pilot’s seat and pretend to fly the Airbus A-310 during flight. His son Eldar applied enough force to the control column to partially disengage the autopilot and problems escalated from there. This resulted in a tragic plane crash that would have been preventable if Mr. Kudrinsky had followed regulations and not allowed his children to enter the cockpit and sit at the controls in mid-flight. Sadly, as a result of this plane crash, 75 people died including Mr. Kudrinsky and his children.

May all of them Rest In Peace. Amen.

World Meteorological Day

With today’s technology, it’s hard to imagine a time when we didn’t know what the weather was going to be like. Instead of having a five-day forecast right on your weather app, you had to read wind patterns for weeks if you wanted to know whether you needed a rain jacket or a light sweater. That’s why, on March 23, we celebrate the World Meteorological Organization, an international organization that collects data from all over the world to help us better understand the weather and its impact on our lives.

World Meteorological Day timeline

March 23, 1961
The WMO Gains Recognition

The first World Meteorological Day is observed, on the anniversary of the organization’s creation.

March 23, 1950
WMO Gets Its Name

The International Meteorological Organization becomes the World Meteorological Organization, which it still is today.

1873
The First Weather Organization Formed

The International Meteorological association is formed to exchange information about weather across national borders.

How to Observe World Meteorological Day
Watch your local weather channel

It’s always a good idea to know what the weather’s going to be like in your area. This World Meteorological Day, however, get to know the people who make these forecasts possible. Your local meteorologist is a vital part of your community.

Download the WMO calendar
Every year, the WMO holds a photo contest and features the winners in their annual calendars. Check for the calendar when it's released— the photos showcase just how stunning weather can be. Best of all, the calendar is available on the WMO website for free download.

Help disaster relief organizations
Early warnings save countless lives but, unfortunately, they are not always enough. Storms can do millions of dollars of damage in a few hours and sometimes recovery is slow. Get in touch with your local Red Cross to find out how you can help those in need by volunteering or donating.

Why World Meteorological Day is Important

It helps us plan our whole days
Without the data collected by the World Meteorological Organization, it would be impossible to get accurate daily weather forecasts. Most people plan their whole day — from how to dress to what to do — around what the weatherman says. A world with no weather forecasts is a world with a lot more ruined picnics.

It tracks climate damage
The World Meteorological Organization is about more than just weather. They detect and monitor changes in climate. This can range from changing sea levels, fluctuations in temperature, and rising levels of greenhouse gasses in the atmosphere. This information is crucial to our understanding of the climate change crises.

They warn us about natural disasters
Natural disasters are, well, disastrous, but they would be much worse if we couldn’t track the storm for days before it strikes. Because of the WMO, we are able to predict huge storms with enough time for people to evacuate the area, or at least make the necessary storm preparations.

To our fellow WFH peeps, now that you are in the WFH Club, we need to lay down some Top Secret guidelines on you just in case management must never know about. First, and this is very important if anyone asks you if you have a camera attached to your computer for like a video conference call or something, just say "No" regardless of reality. Very important.

Oh yeah, we have renamed the days of the week, like Wednesday was Hump Day.

Monday - Pants Optional Monday, pretty self-explanatory.
Tuesday - Topless Tuesday, let them fly boys and girls!
Wednesday - Wacky Wednesday where you send an email to one meeting organizer at random and tell them you can't make it because you have been on the phone with Comcast for an hour and a half and you think that they have almost fixed your internet and maybe you will make it by the end of the meeting.
Thursday - Stays Thirsty Thursday, it is just all day now starting with breakfast and continuing until lights out. Try to make it to at least 5:00 PM.
Friday - Bring your Kindle to Work Day! See how many pages you can read all day and compare numbers in a mysterious email to your co-workers at the end of the day that just contains a number. The highest number brings tacos whenever Taco Tuesday returns.

We think you are armed with the basics now. Enjoy WFH!

Howdy Big Tex, we're back! Didja miss us?😜😁

Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas,

If you are experiencing possible COVID-19 symptoms and believe you have COVID-19, please consult your Primary Care Physician and be properly diagnosed and treated by your doctor instead of self – medicating with any of the drugs that has been listed in any news article as being tested as a possible cure. There are currently NO proven treatments for COVID-19 so please do NOT self – medicate. Some medications have very bad side effects and must be administered in a hospital so the patient can be monitored by the doctor. I do not want anyone in our Texas Region to be harmed by self – medicating and get worse and possibly wind up in critical condition and/or die as a result of it.

May God bless and protect everyone in Texas as well as our relatives and keep us healthy and uninfected by COVID-19. Amen.

Live long and prosper everyone.

Your Buddy Verner

Good morning Ladies and Gentlemen of Texas!

Today is:
World Tuberculosis Day
International Waffle Day

Quotes of the Day:
“Being relaxed, at peace with yourself, confident, emotionally neutral loose, and free-floating — these are the keys to successful performance in almost everything.” —Wayne W. Dyer

“No person, no place, and no thing has any power over us, for 'we' are the only thinkers in our mind. When we create peace and harmony and balance in our minds, we will find it in our lives.” —Louise L. Hay

Music of the Day:

Queen Tribute - We Are The Champions - Child Prodigy Cover | Maati Baani

On This Day In History:
1958 Elvis Presley was inducted into the U.S. Army, before being transferred to Fort Hood, Texas

1986 NASA publishes "Strategy for Safely Returning the Space Shuttle to Flight Status"

1997 Australian parliament overturns world's 1st & only euthanasia law

2015 The Opportunity rover becomes the first to complete a Martian marathon
(Oh God! There’s such a thing as a Martian Marathon?! Nyah ha ha ha!)

2017 US President Donald Trump and Republican party forced to pull their attempt to repeal Obamacare after internal opposition

2019 Investigation headed by Special Council Robert S. Mueller finds no evidence President Trump colluded with Russia in 2016 election

World Tuberculosis Day

World Tuberculosis Day was created by the World Health Organization to spread knowledge and awareness of tuberculosis, an infectious disease that kills millions every year. Tuberculosis is easily curable, but it can lie dormant and undetected for years, so it’s important to spread awareness. The World Health Organization chose March 24 as World Tuberculosis Day to commemorate the day Dr. Robert Koch discovered TB bacillus, the bacterium responsible for the disease.

WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY TIMELINE

March 24, 1982
First World Tuberculosis Day Held

The World Health Organization holds the first World Tuberculosis Day to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Dr. Koch’s discovery.

1921
First Patient Vaccinated

The BCG vaccine is first used on humans after 13 years in the making.

March 24, 1882
Cause of TB Discovered

Dr. Robert Koch discovers TB bacillus, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis.

HOW TO OBSERVE WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY

Get tested
Disease prevention always starts with you. Testing for tuberculosis is simple, and is sometimes required for travel or job applications. It’s always a good thing to have on your medical records and not in your lungs.

Spread awareness
Many people with TB don’t even know they have it. Latent tuberculosis can lie dormant for years without a single symptom. This is why it’s important to spread awareness about how to get tested and treated. With any disease, prevention is the best cure.

Volunteer or donate
Events are held to spread awareness and raise funds all around the world on World Tuberculosis Day. If you can’t find one, organize one yourself. There are many organizations dedicated to the eradication of TB that are always looking for volunteers and donations.

WHY WORLD TUBERCULOSIS DAY IS IMPORTANT

Many people still suffer from tuberculosis
It may seem like an outdated disease, but around one-third of the world’s population is infected with tuberculosis. It’s estimated that 2 billion people have tuberculosis. In 2016, 10.4 million people contracted TB, and there were 1.7 million TB related deaths.

It’s closer to home than you’d think
Although TB is a bigger problem in third world countries, its impact stretches closer to home than you might think. In 2014, there were 9,412 new cases of TB in the United States. In 2016, Tuberculosis was reported in all fifty states, with California, Texas, New York, and Florida topping the list.

We can stop TB
Due to its outdated misconception, tuberculosis is not seen as a relevant issue. Spreading awareness about the disease can help those at high risk seek treatment. If those who are likely to be affected get vaccinated, the disease could be eradicated, and we could see an end to tuberculosis in our lifetime.

International Waffle Day

International Waffle Day was first celebrated in Sweden, and soon spread like batter tall over the world. It started as a yearly tradition on March 25, a day which the people of Sweden celebrate Vårfrudagen (“Our Lady’s Day”), a religious holiday nine months before Christmas, that sounds similar to the Swedish word for waffle (Våffeldagen). With no direct relation to the religious holiday, this delicious celebration is an international hit.

INTERNATIONAL WAFFLE DAY ACTIVITIES

Host an international waffle brunch
Invite your friends over for a festive brunch. The main dish? Waffles! Have everyone bring a topping that is unique to a specific country, and enjoy the flavors from around the world.

Have a waffle eating contest
Start the morning by having a waffle eating contest at your home. Use the original, plain waffles to allow for more to be consumed and the mess on the table to a minimum. The winner gets bragging rights, until the stomach ache subsides.

Organize community waffle day
Contact your local food bank and see if you can organize a special waffle breakfast for the community in need. It's a great way to provide a quick and delicious meal to numerous people who may not have a warm meal to eat.

WHY WE LOVE INTERNATIONAL WAFFLE DAY

They are a tasty treat
The simplicity of the waffle is one to enjoy from time to time. The sweet and fragrant batter makes for a standalone hit for your tastebuds—no need for toppings, the waffle is delicious just as is.

They allow options for the indecisive
Unlike their cousin, the pancake, the waffle design is a great canvas for those who like options. The multiple ridges and sections allow for an array of options when choosing your toppings, and also help keep toppings separated

They are easy to make
Most waffle mixes call for three ingredients at the most, and the cooking process is faster than you would expect, thanks to the waffle iron. This unique tool makes the perfect waffle, every time (no flipping required).

Thank God the Olympics have been postponed. I do not want any athlete or spectator to become infected with COVID-19 because that would suck. GREATLY.

Arizona man dies after ingesting chloroquine in hopes of treating coronavirus
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/03/24/coronavirus-arizona-man-dies-after-self-medicating-chloroquine/2905841001/

Too Long? Here’s the Important Part:

“Given the uncertainty around COVID-19, we understand that people are trying to find new ways to prevent or treat this virus, but self-medicating is not the way to do so,” said Dr. Daniel Brooks, Banner Poison and Drug Information Center medical director in a statement included in the press release.

Brooks explained that while hospitals, including Banner Health, were giving some of its hospitalized COVID-19 patients the prescription medication, the patients typically have moderate or severe symptoms and are monitored under "very strict and intensive conditions" to help decrease the risk of side effects associated with the drug.

While anti-viral medications such as chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine are beneficial to some COVID-19 patients, it has significant side effects and, therefore, should not be given to non-hospitalized patients, he said. The hospital urged people to check with their primary care physician should they experience symptoms related to COVID-19.

Currently, doctors have no established treatments for those suffering from COVID-19 beyond supportive care that generally includes IV liquids, oxygen, fever reducers and pain killers.

Scientists chase two fronts in how to treat coronavirus but 'there's no magic drug right now'
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/health/2020/03/24/coronavirus-drugs-chloroqhine-remdesivir-azithromycin-kevzara/2880884001/

Too Long? Here’s the Important Part:

Doctors and scientists are working furiously to find effective treatments for the illness caused by the new coronavirus but are cautioning the public not to self-medicate or hoard mentioned drugs not yet proven to work.

Despite widespread rumors, social media reports and President Trump's own optimism surrounding the effectiveness of several existing drugs, so far there are no proven treatments for COVID-19, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

“There’s no magic drug out there right now,” Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said at a news conference on Thursday.

In the meantime, experts urge people to remain calm and not experiment themselves with unproven drugs that could have side effects worse than the disease itself.

“Every drug has toxicity, it could make you worse or it could make you better,” said Shokat. "That’s why drugs take a long time to develop – because we have to make sure."

The Enterprise-C, as seen in 'Yesterday's Enterprise' takes the win in our poll. I like the design but was surprised it beat out its successor the Ent-D.

Why would you want the Ent-C it has the loser Shooter Mcgaven as a senior officer you suck you jackass

Lt Castillo. He was a decent character in the episode. I was referring more to the physical ship design than the crew.

I'm not certain they can keep you from getting home under these circumstances.

Day one in the trenches. Fed back B-Roll of people not social distancing in a convenience store, a semi being unloaded at a store (no freakin' toilet paper) and cops running people off the beach. Then did five look-lives with tags for different stations and one network. Tomorrow: Lather, rinse repeat.

Hiram,
Please resurrect the Texas bbq home delivery service again. It's dead again. :(

I don't go to church anymore due to the coronavirus pandemic. I'm praying at home for the health and safety of myself, my family and friends and everyone in Texas and now it's a daily prayer not just on Sundays.
