Most devastating aviation disasters

Everybody uses airplanes to travel from one destination to another. Flight has become so common today and millions of people use it daily. Since commercial flying became popular people have been flying as it was faster and more comfortable than travelling by ship. Statistically flying is actually one of the safest ways to travel but there have been instances that it has turned deadly. Even though more people die from driving related accidents aviation disasters can claim many lives at once due to the airplanes carrying many passengers. Usually when there’s an accident there’s a long investigation and when the fault is found the industry as a whole makes sure it does not happen again. Here’s a list of the most devastating aviation disasters.

Tenerife airport disaster

The Tenerife airport disaster is known as the deadliest disaster in aviation disaster. Two Boeings 747 collided on the runaway and claimed 583 lives. Due to a bomb threat many aircrafts were diverted to Los Rodeos Airport. Many airplanes were parked on the taxiway therefore blocking it. Both the controller in the tower nor the pilots were able to see due to the thick fog. Since there was no ground radar the air controller could only identify the airplanes through voice reports over the radio. The captain of one of the flights tried to take off without clearance from the air traffic control but he believed he had clearance due to a misunderstanding. This resulted in a collision. The accidents resulted in many new regulations and changes in existing ones.  Further certain phrases such as take-off can only be said when actual take off clearance have been given.

Japan Airlines Flight 123

The Japan Airline Flight 123 was another large disaster that took place due to faulty repairs. Seven years prior to the accident the plane’s tailstrike was affected as the rear pressure bulkhead was damaged. The repaid done by Boeing did not conform to their approved repair method. Even though the repair was faulty the flight successfully completed 12,318 flights till the accident. In its last flight the plane suffered an explosive decompression 12 minutes into the flight and crashed 32 minutes later. The crash resulted in 520 fatalities. After this incident airline safety standards improved and repairs were done according to approved methods. Today anyone could go to an aviation equipment shop where everyone can get parts from.

Chakri Dadri mid-air collision

This was the deadliest mid-air collision claiming 349 lives.  This crash that happened mid-air was due to failure to follow instructions.  This failure to follow instruction was either due to communication problems or cloud turbulence. The pilot had descended more than he was instructed to. Further there was the difference of using the metric and imperial system. This accident made India introduce mandatory airborne collision avoidance system to all aircraft flying in and out of India.

Tips on how to look unique

Being unique is a lot more fun than being ordinary. Living in a fiercely competitive world like ours, regardless to which part of the world you call home, all of us, are in a competition. Perhaps you might not have noticed it yet, but all of us in some sort of competition at each point of our lives. The need to score better points, the need to earn more than “a certain someone”, the need to cook better, to sound better, to look better…it’s all a huge competition.

As unsettling as this may sound, it’s not all bad. After all, a little healthy competition can make life a lot more interesting!

And if you want to make yourself look different from the rest, if you want to add a touch of unique in how you look every day, perhaps even create your own “signature” style, then here are a few of our suggestions.

How to be unique with your clothing?

Here’s the thing; you are not going to buy unique clothes, if you buy from the same stores that everyone else buys from. As sad as that feels, perhaps you should try buying your clothes from the less popular spots. Online shopping is a good idea as well. But to us, the ultimate method of being different from the rest, is to make your own clothes. If you’re handy with a sewing machine; then you’ve been given the keys to a brand new world! Even if you’re not, not to worry. Simply design your clothes, and find a flexible seamstress/dressmaker to do your sewing. Unique clothes in a flash!

How to be unique with your jewelry and accessories?

Like clothes, jewelry too tends to be made in bulks, especially for retail selling. In this case, it’s not uncommon to bump into someone wearing the same shoes or even similar earrings as yours. To avoid this, you need to (once more) avoid the popular places for accessories. Try your hand out in DIY jewelry. Trust us, there’s a different satisfaction in being able to make you own jewelry. But if this is not an option, then remember that most jewelry makers will be very happy to make you your own, unique designs. And these can become your “signature”, just like clothes.

How to use colors and styles to create your own style?

Choosing the correct colors to suit your body shape and skin tone can be a little challenging. But if you finally find the correct color tones, it can make you look and feel brilliant. If you decide to stick to a certain color and shades of it, then this too can turn into your signature style. This works the same with certain clothing styles, or haircuts as well. Though we personally prefer to try out new styles and haircuts, we understand that not all styles suit everyone—which makes sticking to one style a lot easier.

Why should you choose an online platform to sell your products?

I think one of the best part about getting to live in today’s world is knowing that anyone can be anything. Your age, gender and which part of the world you hail from hardly makes a difference. Perhaps this is why the world of business is now open for everyone one; and bright, talented entrepreneurs are popping up, all over the world.

Having the talent is important; and so is having the right guidance. Even if you have the funds for your business, and the much needed talent to make money, without the proper guidance, it’s pretty easy to get lost—seeing that the world of business is so vast.

Here’s our take on why, as an entrepreneur, you should select an online platform to begin your business.

Space convenience

One of the biggest issues most people starting a business have, is finding the correct business venue. It has to be in a busy area, yet not too expensive to buy or rent…and yes, depending on the kind of business you plan on running, the parking space can be vital too! But if you decide on having an online shop, rather than having a physical shop somewhere, then perhaps you may be able to avoid all these conditions. Again, depending on the nature of your business, you can even opt to work (sell) from home; which makes it perfect for part time workers or even stay-at-home parents.

Wider customer base

This is one of the biggest attractions of online selling in our opinion. If you decide to sell your products online, then not only will you be able to sell locally, but depending on your products, you can even go international. Unlike before, when products took months in shipping (and often get lost due to unreliable shipping), shipping companies now a-days are fast, reliable, and don’t cost too much either. Of course, this depends on the kind of product you have to sell.

Accessible at all times

In the past decade or so, the world has become smaller. We are, of course, talking about how much the internet and technology has helped out. Almost every person has access to a smart mobile phone, and due to our love of technology, most of us have means to connect to the internet, wherever we go. This makes online shopping a lot easier, and definitely a lot more fun than spending hours standing on line to purchase your things—especially during the season times. Likewise, running a business from even a distance is not too difficult; which makes it possible for you to travel, and be immersed in other aspects of your life, all while running your own online business.
