We have a pause button in the cockpit when we need a comfort break, or want to go and get a coffee. During cruise we do not use it very often, but close to the ground, when it would be dangerous to keep flying without anyone in the cockpit, is when it is used most often. You have probably noticed this on flights that you have made as a passenger.

Comment on Chinese Tourist Smuggles Gold: Put the Gold Inside Smartphone by mm http://englishrussia.com/2018/11/09/chinese-tourist-smuggles-gold-put-the-gold-inside-smartphone/#comment-9665955 Mon, 12 Nov 2018 19:39:31 +0000 http://englishrussia.com/?p=172704#comment-9665955 Darren, your assessment regarding value of gold, nugget vs jewelry, is confusing when it comes to trade. Gold price is based on purity and weight regardless of what form it is in unless it is a coin with historic value, graded and/or degree of rarity. Sure, when selling a piece of gold jewelry, the workmanship will not enter the value but the price of a recent Krugerrand is also just based on the content and weight. Feel free to correct me if needed.

In the best school in yakutia, republic lyceum, are studied both of nations: russian, yakutsk, and also national minorities: evenks, evens, dolgans, ekagiry and others of many nationalites in Russia. Yes, we have not strong enough economy and infrastructure, but at least, in yakutia, we still can get good education

Here in Canada all crown land is protected even though we have millions of sq kilometers. You can only walk and ride snowmobile on controlled pathways. That’s why you never see stuff like this in Canada because the government wont allow anyone to even make a fishing hut without permission. Can you imagine how much land we have here and no one is allowed to set foot unless you have permission and money.

A lot of people have more than that amount as jewelry and/or watch band on them and never a problem. There got to be more to this story but, the tourist should have had the gold melted and made in to a simple bracelet and could easily pass through the security. A nice belt buckle would have worked too.

Ain’t got time to take a fast train …

… those were the days (Box Tops, 1967). Thankfully, we’ve all learned a bit since. We now know that in the long run a ticket for an aeroplane won’t get us anywhere as it destroys the earth’s atmosphere and jeopardizes our survival on this planet. A few years later (1982) Donald Fagen sang in “I.G.Y” about our insane optimism in future technology and our addiction to speed (“ninety minutes from New York to Paris”) … and of course he was right. In my opinion the whole planet has to slow down, not only speed-wise but in all its frenzied activities like the exploitation of nature and its resources, trade, travel etc. Why does everything have to be “high-speed” these days?

Besides, non-stop long haul flights as the one you describe represent a tiny fraction of the over all global passenger numbers. Should we really pour who knows how many tens of billions into the development of such a plane (I was being sarcastic when I suggested it), knowing full well in advance that such a plane will always gobble up much more fuel per passenger/mile than a conventional subsonic plane?
