1  Getbig Main Boards / Gossip & Opinions / Re: Non-lifter crashes plane on FL beach. Kills 1, another in critical condition on: Today at 11:20:28 AM
I don't understand why the pilot would do this? WTF was he thinking?

I've seen videos of water landings, I thought you could basically stall a small plane and fall right down into the water safely?

http://www.thekathrynreport.com/2014/07/piper-pa-28-181-archer-ii-n8826c.html?showComment=1406568681084

Federal investigators are still trying to figure out why a small plane landed on a Venice beach on Sunday, killing a Georgia father and critically injuring his 9-year-old daughter as they walked along the sand.

But aviation experts contacted by the Tampa Bay Times offered explanations for the puzzling accident. Couldn't the father have gotten himself and his daughter out of the way? Why didn't the pilot try to avoid them?

It was not clear Monday afternoon what forced pilot Karl Kokomoor, 57, to make an emergency landing on Caspersen Beach, a strip of sand popular for shelling. Venice Municipal Airport was about a mile away.

It's possible the pilot didn't see Ommy Irizarry and his daughter Oceana, said Rex Myers, who manages the Pilot Country Airport in Spring Hill. Kokomoor could have been distracted by the dual pressures of keeping the airplane gliding smoothly to the beach and scouting out a landing strip.

"My guess is, he was concentrating so hard on landing the airplane on the beach that he literally didn't see the people," Myers said.

What's more, if the plane's engine failed, it would have been gliding in almost silently, said Stuart Campbell, assistant professor of aeronautical science at Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.

That means the 36-year-old father, on vacation with his family, wouldn't have heard the small Piper Cherokee plane behind them until seconds before they were struck.

"It's like a car passing you," Campbell said. "You don't hear the car until it's right up on you, maybe due to wind or maybe due to noise."

Myers agreed.

"If you're walking on the beach and your back is to the airplane, you would never hear it coming," Myers said.

Ommy died at the scene. Oceana was airlifted to All Children's Hospital Johns Hopkins Medicine, where she remained in critical condition Monday.

Myers, 71, a retired Boeing 767 pilot who also flies small aircraft, said if he had seen the family, he would have steered his plane into the water at the last second. But that sort of landing usually causes the plane to flip, leaving the cabin in the water and the pilot disoriented.

"It's almost always fatal," Myers said.

Pilots are trained to scout a suitable landing strip at all times, Campbell said. When it became clear that the plane wouldn't make it to the airport, Campbell said, the pilot would have had just a split second to find a second option.

"Personally, if I had a choice, I would land on the beach and not the water," Campbell said.

Campbell added that the pilot's thinking may have changed because he was carrying a passenger.

Kokomoor and passenger David Theen, 60, were uninjured.

Venice Municipal Airport does not have a control tower, but pilots use radios to coordinate their takeoffs and landings. Kokomoor made a distress call via radio on Sunday just before the crash.

Callers first from the airport, then from the beach reported the plane going down.

"It hit the water then kind of rolled up on the sand," one caller told a dispatcher.

Its just a disguised hug. Next will be a regular hug and then there will be kisses on the mouth.

Do you think John Wayne would hug?

You might as well start wearing pantyhose.

I use to work in the food industry and there is a LOT of adulteration and fraud going on.  The FDA is a joke.

50% of the food that is labeled as organic, is NOT truly organic.

Kosher foods are another huge scam.

What part of the food industry?  My dad was in the meat business for years.  Some of the stories...  Lips sealed Lips sealed Lips sealed    Roll Eyes    Couldn't watch all of Food, Inc.  Sad & disgusting.  Trying to deal mostly with local farmers these days.

I have been spending between $30-$50 (depending on how much beef I buy) every 10 days or so for years now. And that is usually 2x8oz cooked weight chicken meals a day and an 8oz beef meal per day.

It is just now starting to hit me that maybe I'm missing out on some secret little tricks.

After trying the Wal-Mart frozen 3lb bag breasts I can't help but feel like they are still somehow fucking with me, even at like 1.60 a lb...whether it's "broth" or whatever fucking tricks they are pulling, something just doesn't seem right about them...And it got me thinking.

Housewives and soccer mom types seem to have all these little coupon tricks and shit because they have time to sit at home all day while their husbands work and study these secrets, they learn how to do this shit over the generations.

I do not have access to any of these types of women so I turn to the older and much wiser members of Getbig to enlighten me on the secrets of finding the best possible deals on chicken breast and ground beef / steak.


ALDI  Cash or debit  - no credit cards.  Bring your own bags.  Not much (yet) in the way of organics but their basic fresh meat is decent.  Wednesdays start their sales week and meat special buys.  A couple weeks ago they had flanks and tenderloins for $5.99/lb.  Fresh chicken breasts are usually $2.40/lb ~ sometimes $1.99/lb.  Don't know what the frozen bags go for, but they do have a large frozen section.  Whole fresh chickens - .95/lb



Here's a secret - the cheapest chicken is fed shit it's not supposed to eat (corn and waste animal parts; other chicken and beef typically) and injected with hormones and antibiotics. You buy this, and you're guaranteed to eat shit.

Pay few bucks more and find grain fed chicken that runs free.

You're welcome.


More than a "few bucks more".  I just bought a fresh whole local free range chicken which was $5/lb so ~ $25~ bucks.  Nothing will go to waste though.  After roasting, any leftovers will go into salad and then the carcass for stock and dog treats.


Fresh USDA Choice T-Bone Steak
per lb.$7.99



Fresh 85% Lean Organic Grass-Fed Ground Beef

I've been surprised to great customer service from AT&T UVerse and also DirecTV.  LG sux.  American Airlines is bad whether it's phone, web or in person.  Even their own employees hate them.  Clark Howard always refers to BoA as customer no service.

I absolutely despise off-shore customer service and will always insist on a US number or hang up and call the company direct.

If the trainer doesn't cough up pics to back up his about 250lbs, about 8% bf claim. Please stick that little fucker in TO for a couple of weeks.

He's trolled the crap out of us for two months straight, condescending on training and diet and AAS protocols and now he's backing down and already lining up excuses for August 6th.

Muratic acid they have it at lowes it used for cleaning masonry messes

I'll probably try that as a last resort

lmfao! Grin

I can put 'cha to work in exchange for rent.  Wink


ROFL

I can't think of anything, but maybe you should consider staining it all a color? Some of these look pretty nice.


I'm  kinda diggin' that idea, however, wondering if it would penetrate the spots since everything so far is being repelled.  Do you think something like that would survive ugly winters?

That and Chaos' suggestion are both good.

You could also try oven cleaner spray

But jokes aside, Easy-Off will pretty much clean anything.



Simple Green or a good laundry detergent on the light end.  Apply, scrub, let sit, crub then power wash. Carb or oven cleaner is harsher, but it will usually do a half way decent job.

Thanks.  I'll try those next.

Dawn Liquid Soap - Dump a bunch of bottles on the spots, let is soak, scrub the spots a little to make sure the stain came out.  If it's out, just powerwash the mess away. 

I use it for when we have fuel spills on concrete.  Works well.

Just pour it on straight?  The blue Dawn was what I tried first, but semi diluted and scrubbed in, then power washed.  It maybe helped ever so slightly.   Damn.  Simple Simon will be able to eat off the driveway by the time I'm through.    Grin

Due to one of my dogs getting into something unknown and the subsequent barf cleanup, I have dozens of grease type stains all over the driveway.  Could've been some type of cooking oil, bacon grease, suet... So far I've tried foot grinding in kitty litter, scrubbing with Dawn, Oil Dri, all followed up with a power washer.  So far nothing it touching it.  Trying to be as least caustic as possible.  It's a HUGE area of spots (?~300-400 sq ft). Next step might be this stuff from Quikcrete

and as a last step, maybe muriatic acid.  Any suggestions?

Fish oil is touted as a magical potion that boosts fertility, heart health, and weight loss and promotes a clear complexion, while lessening the effects of depression, ulcers, diabetes and many more conditions. But there’s another benefit to these glossy little capsules: They may prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

A new study of 819 people published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia found that taking fish oil supplements on a daily basis is associated with a significant decrease in cognitive decline (as measured by the Alzheimer’s Disease Assessment Scale and the Mini Mental State Exam) and brain atrophy — important findings in light of statistics that show that one person per minute is diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease.

“We found that fish oil use was associated with better performance on standard tests of memory and thinking abilities over time, compared to those who didn’t take supplements,” lead study author Lori Daiello, a research scientist at the Alzheimer’s Disease and Memory Disorders Center at Rhode Island Hospital, tells Yahoo Health. “They also experienced less brain shrinkage in areas of the brain important for healthy cognitive aging — the cerebral cortex and hippocampus, the portion of the brain responsible for forming and retaining memories.”

For this study, researchers analyzed information from neuropsychological tests and MRI brain imaging performed at regular intervals for up to four years during the Alzheimer’s disease Neuroimaging Initiative, a longitudinal study of brain aging and Alzheimer’s Disease. The population consisted of a group of older adults with varying degrees of cognitive capability: normal cognitive function, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer’s disease. The benefit of fish oil appeared strongest in the group with normal cognitive functioning. “Retrospective studies cannot establish cause and effect, so we can’t make a global recommendation that everyone should start taking fish oil supplements. But the findings highlight the need for additional research on the effects of longterm fish oil use on brain health in later life,” says Daiello. 

The main ingredient in fish oil is DHA, omega-3 fatty acids found in cold-water fatty fish such as salmon, swordfish, trout, yellowfin tuna, mackerel, and more. (Non fish-lovers can find it in eggs, milk, and algae-derived supplements). According to Daiello, there is no definitive evidence that eating fish daily is better than taking fish-oil supplements. But some people dislike the fishy breath that lingers after taking the supplements. “In that case, you could always store the capsules in the freezer, which seems to diminish the scent,” suggests Daiello. (Though the study did not address the dosage of daily fish oil to take, the World Health Organization recommends a daily EPA and DHA intake of 0.3 to 0.5 grams and a daily ALA intake of 0.8 to 1.1 grams.)

And while the effects of fish oil have been well-documented, they also carry a “buyer beware” element. One study, conducted by a testing company called LabDoor, found that what’s advertised on the label of many supplements may not live up to their promise of what’s advertised on the labels. When the company analyzed 30 top-selling brands, they found that six products exaggerated the amount of omega-3 on their labels by 30 percent. And at least a dozen products contained DHA levels that were 14 percent less than advertised. “Mislabeling is a big problem because the FDA considers fish oil supplements food, not drugs, so they aren’t regulated,” says Daiello. “So it’s tough to verify the purity of what you buy.”

To select the best supplement, talk to your doctor, who may be able to recommend a pill that’s right for your needs. Or join a subscription-based website such as Consumer Lab, which regularly tests vitamins and supplements.
