Unveiled the Bermuda Triangle Mystery

The answer to one of the questions that people have thought about for years…

The mystery of the Bermuda Triangle would be resolved:

 

Ships and planes, over time, would have disappeared because of a particular weather phenomenon. The conditional, however, is a must because, despite the news about it had a big echo, remain in doubt.

According to a group of scientists, led by Dr. Steve Miller, meteorologist at Colorado State University, in the Atlantic Ocean portion closest to the Caribbean and the Americas, which would have occurred in the past mysterious accidents, they would form the “hexagonal clouds”. A kind of “killer” barrier of clouds at the bottom of this layer, in fact, the wind speed on the sea would come to exceed 270 km / h.

Ships and planes that were accidentally in this area would be faced with waves of up to 15 meters and strong winds. Equal to those that are unleashed during the most violent hurricanes.

“This type of hexagonal clouds are, essentially, air bombs,” explained Dr. Cerveny of Arizona State University.

 

The clouds, according to the expert, form the micro-explosions of jets of air down from the cloud, which then would affect the ocean, forming huge waves.

 

A similar phenomenon has been observed in the North Sea, in Europe. Although, according to supporters of the myth, it is not possible to compare what is happening in locations as distant and diverse on the planet.

 

Then it assumed that the disappearance of ships and aircraft had something to do with the paranormal or UFO. And it was, in any case, inexplicable.

Today, however, we know that in that area we are so glad accidents and shipwrecks but not more than other areas of the world.

Lately, also, there is no news of vessels or aircraft disappeared into thin air. Therefore, as we read in Science Alert, “there is no mystery to be solved. The real news is not the solution to a long-standing myth, but the potential discovery of a new atmospheric phenomenon”. That could be, perhaps, even more interesting.

Nederlanders blijken gulle fooigevers in de taxi

fooi

Nederlanders zijn gulle fooigevers in de taxi van of naar een vliegveld. Dit blijkt uit onderzoek van Taxi2airport. Het online taxiplatform heeft onlangs onderzocht hoeveel fooi Nederlandse reizigers aan taxichauffeurs geven. Het gaat hierbij om taxiritten van of naar commerciële Nederlandse luchthavens in het derde kwartaal van 2016. Gemiddeld geven Nederlanders € 5,30 fooi per rit. Afgewogen tegen de prijs van een gemiddelde rit, komt dit uit op 5,98%.

Luchthavens in Nederland

Nederland telt 27 vliegvelden, waarvan er 5 commercieel zijn. De overige vliegvelden worden gebruikt voor militaire- of recreatieve doeleinden. De commerciële luchthavens zijn verspreid over Amsterdam (Schiphol), Eindhoven (Eindhoven Airport), Rotterdam (Rotterdam The Hague airport), Maastricht (Maastricht Aachen airport) en Groningen (Groningen airport Eelde).

Landelijk gemiddelde

Binnen het onderzoek werd gebruik gemaakt van kwartaal 3 van 2016. In deze periode werd aan 59 taxichauffeurs gevraagd om ontvangen fooien te registreren. In totaal werden 1200 ritten geanalyseerd. Uit deze analyse werd een selectie gemaakt van gelijkwaardige taxiritten (op basis van afstanden) en gelijke aantallen ritten per luchthaven. Hieruit is gebleken dat Nederlandse reizigers gemiddeld € 5,30 fooi geven. De gemiddelde prijs voor een taxirit van of naar een vliegveld blijkt uit de analyse € 88,60 te bedragen.

Provinciale verschillen

Naast het landelijke gemiddelde kon Taxi2airport duidelijke provinciale verschillen opmerken. Zo geven reizigers uit Zeeland gemiddeld het meeste fooi (€ 9,07). Ook Friezen en Noord-Brabanders geven betrekkelijk veel fooi. Reizigers uit Friesland geven gemiddeld € 8,78 uit en Noord-Brabanders houden het op iets meer dan 8 euro (€ 8,03).

taxi2airport-fooionderzoek-landingspagina-website

Figuur 1: gemiddelde fooi aan taxichauffeurs - per provincie

Reizigers uit Utrecht en Zuid-Holland geven het minste fooi. Zuid-Hollanders geven gemiddeld € 2,87 aan fooi uit. Utrechters houden hun hand het meest op de knip; met een gemiddeld fooi bedrag van € 1,75.

Fooi advies

Voor taxidiensten bestaan er geen (duidelijke) richtlijnen of verwachtingen met betrekking tot fooi. Juist om deze reden is het opvallend dat Nederlanders bijna 6% fooi geven.

Why you have to turn off your phone during a flight?

Travelling by airplane comes up with a series of flight safety rules of which some are annoying. It could be better if everyone understands the reason behind them. Here we have some explanations.

Phone off

Why you have to turn off your phone during a flight?

This belongs to the most mysterious airplane rules because no one had proved what it does, also what it does not. A common explanation is due to mobile’s signal transmitting functions could jamming the plane signal. As long as you turn your phone into Flight mode which disable every signal transmitting, your phone is good to be use for taking photos of the sky outside.

Light dimming

Why you have to turn off your phone during a flight?

During takeoff and landing, the cabin lights are usually dimmed. This is for emergency cases that require an evacuation. When the light is changed to be similar to outside condition, the eyes of the crew and passengers do not suffer a shock from a dark cabin to bright daylight.

Tray table up

Why you have to turn off your phone during a flight?

During the most important time of a flight, takeoff and landing, incidents possibly happen. The tray table can cause internal injuries to passengers if their abdomen slam towards. In case of evacuation, the tray table can cause difficulties for passengers sitting by windows to get out.

Windows shade up

Why you have to turn off your phone during a flight?

Opening the window shade allows people to observe outside condition and check if there are any fire or smoke.

All of annoying rules are to secure flight safety which is the most critical thing. So that, it is compulsory to follow all instructions from attendants and pilots. We wish you a happy travelling.
