By Dev Goswami: On September 20, 2018 around 30 passengers were left suffering nose and ear bleeds in a freak accident on a Jet Airways flight from Mumbai to Jaipur. The accident was attributed to pilot error that led to the plane having no cabin pressure after take-off.
What happened on Helios Airways Flight 522 was similar to what happened on Jet Airways Flight 697. The Jet Airways pilots forgot to press a switch that would have ensured cabin pressure in their plane.
Due to a lack of cabin pressure, which is essential to ensure that passengers and crew can breathe normally at high altitudes, several people on the plane suffered minor injuries. (Read more about what cabin pressure is why it is important on planes)
An investigation conducted by the Greek transport ministry blamed the crash of Helios Airways Flight 522 on three direct factors: The pilots failing to realise that the cabin pressure knob was in the wrong position, the pilots not realising that their plane had lost cabin pressure, and the pilots passing out due to a lack of oxygen.
In a cruel twist of fate, when the pilots made a mid-air call to ground engineers to report certain problems they were facing, they were asked to double check that the cabin pressure knob was in an auto mode.
The entire iPhone 14 lineup introduces groundbreaking safety capabilities that can provide emergency assistance when it matters most. With a new dual-core accelerometer capable of detecting G-force measurements of up to 256Gs and a new high dynamic range gyroscope, Crash Detection on iPhone can now detect a severe car crash and automatically dial emergency services when a user is unconscious or unable to reach their iPhone. These capabilities build on existing components, like the barometer, which can now detect cabin pressure changes, the GPS for additional input for speed changes, and the microphone,4 which can recognize loud noises typified by severe car crashes. Advanced Apple-designed motion algorithms trained with over a million hours of real-world driving and crash record data provide even better accuracy. When combined with Apple Watch, Crash Detection seamlessly leverages the unique strength of both devices to get users help efficiently. When a severe crash is detected, the emergency services call interface will appear on Apple Watch, as it is most likely to be in closer proximity to the user, while the call is placed through iPhone if it is in range for the best possible connection.
Okay, so, technically in The Fugitive, the wrongfully-convicted Dr. Richard Kimble (Harrison Ford) does not *break out of prison* so much as run away after several prisoners hijack their transport bus and attempt to escape, but the stakes are the same. Kimble is on death row for the murder of his wife, which he absolutely did not commit, and is determined to clear his name, running like hell and changing his identity and doing everything he can to avoid capture by the jeans-wearing human bloodhound of U.S. Marshall, Samuel Gerard (Tommy Lee Jones, in an incredibly well-deserved Oscar-winning performance). I love this movie so much. Sam Gerard may not care, but I do.
Meticulous attention to design has produced a cabin that is a ﬂawless triumph of sporty luxury. Another ﬁrst from the GTC4Lusso is the new, beautifully balanced Dual Cockpit architecture designed to enhance the shared driving experience for both driver and passenger. 2b1af7f3a8
