How to Pack an Emergency Kit Like a Spy Plane Pilot

How to Pack an Emergency Kit Like a Spy Plane Pilot
Good stuff. One thing we learned from the Iraq and AFG wars in the event we got shot down, which happened, 99% of the time you are only going to get out of the aircraft with what is attached to your body. We had survival rucks with all sorts of goodies (claymores, grenades, extra ammo, MRE's), but they never made it out of the aircraft most of the time. So we made sure that we had the basics attached to our body (and not attached to our body armor if possible because that will be the first thing to go if I get too tired to run). So we can apply the same thought process to survival/go bags in RL. Always have a knife on your person. Now you are all set for the zombies!

An Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) is an aircraft that has the capability of autonomous flight, without a pilot in control. Amateur UAVs are non-military and non-commercial. They typically fly under “recreational” exceptions to FAA regulations on UAVs, so long as the pilots/programmers keep them within tight limits on altitude and distance. Usually the UAV is controlled manually by Radio Control (RC) at take-off and landing, and switched into GPS-guided autonomous mode only at a safe altitude.

The Key To Learning: Knowing How Learning Works What’s the key to effective learning? One intriguing body of research suggests a rather riddle-like answer: It’s not just what you know. It’s what you know about what you know. To put it in more straightforward terms, anytime a student learns, he or she has to bring in two kinds of prior knowledge: knowledge about the subject at hand (say, mathematics or history) and knowledge about how learning works.

A closer look at the space shuttle that never got to space NEW YORK—The space shuttle Enterprise has been ensconced aboard the USS Intrepid for just over two years. It sits in a silent warehouse, dramatically lit so it appears to be cruising in a dark vacuum. Tourists can wander around or under it at the exhibit; they can even walk up some stairs and get nose-to-nose with the Enterprise, staring down its long axis through a thick layer of glass. While the whole thing evokes space exploration, the Enterprise has never actually made it out of Earth's atmosphere. The shuttle on display has the distinction of being one of NASA's biggest workhorses despite earning perhaps the least amount of glory among the entire space shuttle fleet.
