Angels Do Exist

A down-to-Earth angelic tale from across the Pond.
Angels In America
(I’m stocking a shelf. I notice a customer with her five-year-old daughter. They both look like they’ve been through a hard time.)
Little Girl: “Mama, I’m hungry.”
(The mother looks near tears.)
Mother: “I know baby; I’m sorry. Mommy only has $5, so we have to find food that will stretch until next week when mommy gets paid.”
Little Girl: “Okay.”
(I see another customer with a baby in a cart walk up to the woman.)
Another Customer: “Excuse me, I couldn’t help but overhear you. I don’t mean to put you on the spot, but I’d like to help you.”
(The other customer holds out a $20 bill. The mother starts to cry.)
Mother: “You don’t even know me, and you’re trying to help me. My husband walked out. I work a minimum wage job

GPS: what does a satellite send out?

A GPS satellite sends out ephemeris and almanac data, on that subjects all sources I've read agree.
But it's about the health data, the ionospheric delays, and the offset of satellite clock from GMT that a lot of books disagree.
I asume health data is being transmitted by the satellite.
The ionospheric delay can only be corrected by differential GPS or by comparing the L1 and L2 signal. So it isn't send out by the satellite. How would a satellite even know what that delay is?
And the receiver receives the satellite's clock, and corrects its own internal clock to match that satellite's clock. Otherwise the correction to the receiver's internal clock would become bigger and bigger over time.
Am I right about those items?

Hey Guys,
Could someone please help me with this very urgent question:
I have just finished my TR on the A320 and the instructor gave me a filled out SRG 2199 form. On the form I noticed that the line "Instrument Rating Type Specific (please specify including variants) ..." was not filled in by him.
Was he supposed to fill in this form in order for me to get my IR revalidated or has this to do with a different aircraft rating?
Could someone please let me know as soon as possible, because I am going to the CAA on Monday to get my TR endorsed.
Thank you very much in advance!

FAA- Hours Logging as a safety pilot

Had a quick question.
As per the FAA, if one is flying a single engine under the hood and another pilot is flying as safety pilot. Both can log PIC.
However, if one pilot is not very proficient and holds a FAA PPL and has a safety pilot on board to get proficient or for safety. Can the Safety pilot log hours as total time? I understand the safety pilot cannot log PIC time but can he log total time or not?
Please advise

Air India suspends pilot, two air hostesses for 'overstaying'

incident in cockpit
An Air India pilot and two air hostesses were suspended after an airline probe found that the cabin crew overstayed in the cockpit on a Delhi-bound flight from Bangkok on April 12.
The action came amidst reports that while the pilot took a nap in the business class, the air hostesses were left to operate the aircraft over 20 minutes, endangering the safety of 166 passengers on board.
The pilot had reportedly put the plane on auto-pilot mode and allowed the cabin crew to be in the cockpit.
Airline regulator DGCA has initiated a probe to ascertain whether the pilot had left the cockpit as suggested by the reports.
Air India admitted that the air hostesses had overstayed in the cockpit but denied that the pilot had allowed them to operate the aircraft.

Seems logical to me

BBC News - Woman washed suspected bomb in kitchen sink
Well what else would you do with it? Any self-respecting housewife, expecting a visit from the bomb squad, would want her bomb to look clean and well presented. Standards would definitely be slipping in the UK if she had done anything different.

Idle reverse = No reverse QRH???

Hi guys and girls,
During a flight with a trainer we was discussing Brake cooling.
I suggested, being late at night, using idle reverse (first detent).
The trainer suggested that I look at the brake cooling schedule no reverse detent.
Reason behind it, Idle reverse is the same as idle, so therefore there is no reverse thrust.
I havent heard of this before, but I see the logic, as there are no numbers for idle reverse, using no reverse would be the worst case.
What do you guys think?

British D-Day Beaches Airbrushed by French Tourism Chiefs

D-Day heroes wiped off the map by the French: Veterans' fury after tourism chiefs ignore Sword Beach in promotional campaign
It was the scene of some of D-Day’s fiercest fighting, where almost 700 brave British troops were killed or wounded. Exactly 69 years ago today - June 6 1944 - courageous UK forces went ashore at Sword Beach into a ferocious barrage from German guns.
But on the anniversary of the Normandy landings, as thousands congregate on the coast to remember the selfless Allied sacrifice, veterans are furious their role in history is being airbrushed by money-grabbing French tourism chiefs........
