In a video tweeted by @ATLUncensored, which has been viewed more than 7.7 million times, a woman lost her damn mind because an elderly man wasn’t wearing his mask on a Delta flight from Tampa to Atlanta.

    Baltimore Ravens offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva recently had a golden line about playing his position. During the “Sunday Night Football” game against the Chiefs, NBC put up a quote from Villanueva that is nothing short of incredible about the challenges of being a tackle. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) “It reminds me of jumping out of airplanes when I was in the Army. There is very little upside. the best thing that can happen when you jump is you survive. Playing tackle is kind of the same way.

    C. Douglas Golden, The Western Journal April 12, 2021 0 Comments Spending records don’t equal speed records. Don’t tell that to President Joe Biden, mind you. He seems convinced his new, $2.trillion “infrastructure” plan will give every man, woman, nonbinary person, child and theyby in the United States a self-driving electric car that can take them anywhere in minutes using so little power you could do it on an AA battery. Oh, and the car’ll have free internet 50 times quicker than anything you can get today. That’s not infrastructure? Well, don’t worry — the Biden administration is spending billions to tear down “racist” highways that were built through black neighborhoods, most over a half-century ago, all in the name of equity. Not only do you get those self-driving electric cars, you can drive them on equitable freeways that helped solve bigotry, too! And, um, I suppose they’ll be building some roads and bridges and stuff with the 6 percent that’s left over. (Seriously, that’s the figure.) If you think this is hyperbole, consider this non-hyperbole from Biden during...
    An obese woman who spent years being labeled a 'cow' and a 'whale' because of her weight has revealed how a trip to Mexico finally gave her the motivation to get fit and shed 175lb - after she had to endure the embarrassment of being unable to fit into a plane seatbelt.    Middle school teacher Casey Canaday, 25, from Iowa, grew up with food at the center of her life. Whether it was for a celebration, a way to deal with boredom or a way to cope with difficult moments in her life, Casey would always turn to food - and by the time she reached adulthood, she was gorging herself on more than 3,000 calories a day. Neither Casey or her mom Monica Yori, 55, had the energy or desire to cook so she lived off huge portions of takeout food and even ate doughnuts for breakfast which inevitably led to further weight gain.

    (CNN)For those who haven't had the opportunity to follow this past weekend's dramatic story, United Flight 328, a Boeing 777-200, departed Denver Airport bound for Honolulu at 1:04 p.m. local time. A few minutes into the trip, the airplane experienced what we call in the business a catastrophic engine failure. The event also qualified as an uncontained engine failure because various pieces of the engine scattered debris onto a nearby suburb. The covering of the engine, similar in function to the hood of a car and known as the cowling, completely separated from the engine. Les AbendWhat exactly is meant by catastrophic and uncontained? A catastrophic failure is an event that occurs as a result of pieces of the plane itself traveling at high speed through the jet engine, destroying it in the process. In the circumstance of United 328, it appears that a fan blade that came loose in the front of the engine may have been the culprit, based on preliminary findings.In contrast, I once experienced a benign engine failure on a B-767 at cruise altitude.

    Marjorie Taylor Greene has been a fixture of Tucker Carlson Tonight in recent weeks — but not because she has claimed the Sandy Hook massacre was staged or endorsed assassinating U.S. politicians. The Fox News host has instead condemned and mocked the rest of the media for reporting on those comments, thereby elevating Greene beyond her position as a freshman congresswoman. Greene has come under fire for her promotion of the absurd claim that the election was stolen, as well as QAnon, the conspiracy theory that holds Democrats are part of a “global cabal of Satan-worshipping pedophiles” (her words). Mitch McConnell spoke out against Greene in a statement this week. “Loony lies and conspiracy theories are cancer for the Republican Party and our country,” he said. “Somebody who’s suggested that perhaps no airplane hit the Pentagon on 9/11, that horrifying school shootings were pre-staged, and that the Clintons crashed JFK Jr.’s airplane is not living in reality. This has nothing to do with the challenges facing American families or the robust debates on substance that can strengthen our party.” On...
    (THE CONVERSATION)  – I am a retired United States Air Force pilot and flight instructor, and a few years ago I was sitting in the cockpit of a Boeing 747 airplane. I was 29,000 feet in the sky, flying from New Jersey to Sacramento, California, and then to Hawaii. It took six hours to fly and land the plane safely in Sacramento. After a few hours in California, I continued to Hawaii, which took almost another five hours of flying. That was 11 total hours of flying. After enjoying the sunshine in Hawaii, it was time to fly back to New Jersey. This trip went much faster. I didn’t stop in California this time, but flying back only took about eight and a half hours. I was still flying the same airplane,and New Jersey wasn’t any closer to California or Hawaii than it had been a few days before. So why was my flight to Hawaii, from east to west, so much longer than my flight home? Riding on a river of air The reason it took so much longer...

By 22, she had an associate’s degree and planned to apply for higher-skilled positions paying up to $40 an hour. Then the coronavirus pandemic hit. Many people stopped flying. Airlines ordered fewer planes. And manufacturers ordered fewer engines for which O’Berry produced turbine blades. O’Berry was laid off in July with more than 100 coworkers at the plant in Prince George, which is about 40 miles (about 64 kilometers) south of Richmond. In August, the Britain-based company said the facility would close permanently by the middle of 2021 after employing about 400 people at its peak. The pandemic has disrupted so many different aspects of the American economy, from restaurants to movie theaters. The fate of this Rolls Royce plant is one example of the impact on jobs in the nation's hard-hit civil aerospace industry. O’Berry’s job is one of tens...

    A woman likely became infected with the novel coronavirus after she used an airplane bathroom, a new report suggests. The 28-year-old was among about 300 South Koreans who were evacuated from Milan, Italy, on March 31 - in the midst of the pandemic's height Europe, researchers wrote in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's journal Emerging Infectious Diseases. The team, from Soonchunhyang University College of Medicine, in Seoul, South Korea, says the woman wore an N95 mask for the duration of the flight, except when she went to use the toilet.   At least one person who had COVID-19, but was asymptomatic at the time, also used the restroom, making it likely that the 28-year-old breathed in infectious droplets or touched a contaminated surface.  The 28-year-old woman was among 300 South Koreans evacuated from Italy in March. She only took off her mask when she went to use the airplane toilet, which was shared by other passengers, including an asymptomatic patient (above) Eight days later, the woman developed symptoms such as coughing and was eventually transferred to a hospital, where she...

    Back in August 2019, Dale Jr. and his family were in a plane crash in Tennessee. Luckily, the former driver, his wife, daughter, and dog escaped unscathed. Nearly a year later, the National Transportation Safety Board revealed some new information, in the form of photos and investigative documents. According to them, the crashed Cessna had no engine issues nor any other failures. As it turned out, the plane bounced twice on the runway before it skidded off the tarmac and caught fire. Luckily, the pilots were alert and helped everyone escape. In addition, an ex U.S. Air Force member rushed in to help after witnessing the crash. The organization released some investigative documents and indicated that the investigation was nearly done. Apparently, the fiery crash meant that Earnhardt’s back sustained a minor injury. What was Dale Earnhardt Jr. doing at the time? The Hall of Famer was on his way to the Bristol Motor Speedway for a Cup Series race and he was heading to Texas. Documents revealed that the plane approached the runway a little too quickly and the...
