Pilots Reveal 16 Nuances That Make Your Flight Safe

How to Travel when Flying on a Plane? You’ll get some pretty unexpected and useful insider-knowledge directly from different airline crew members. We'd like to share them with you before you set forth on your next trip! Each profession has its own tricks of the trade that aren’t usually shared with anyone outside the professional circle. Aviation has always been a fascinating and mysterious line of work, and this makes it even more interesting to learn about all the secrets that we aviation outsiders have no idea about. If you’ve never heard of at least one of these facts, hit that “like” button! TIMESTAMPS Pilots are prohibited from having a beard 0:44 It's cold on planes for the sake of your health 1:14 Planes never fly in straight lines 1:46 It's better to wear sturdy shoes on a flight 2:33 Pilots and dispatchers aren’t always formal with each other 3:15 The average person will never manage to land a plane 3:42 Flights delays affect not only passengers but flight attendants as well 4:26 Pilots have to take turns going to the bathroom 4:50 Airplane food is bad, and nobody’s to blame for it 5:27 Comfortable clothes help you stay healthy 6:14 Pilots communicate with flight attendants through a bulletproof door 6:38 The smoothest place to sit is over or near the wing 7:28 There’s a secret signal if the plane has been hijacked 7:56 A hard landing is sometimes done on purpose 8:14 Cabin lights are dimmed during a nighttime landing for a reason 8:50 There’s only 15 minutes worth of oxygen in the masks 9:15 SUMMARY - Some airlines forbid their pilots from having beards. The reasoning behind this is that a beard can prevent an oxygen mask from securing to the face tightly in the event of an emergency situation. - If the air in the cabin is too warm, it can trigger this problem, so that's why the air temperature is kept cool. - Why curved lines? That’s because the Earth is round, but the map on the screen is flat. But what’s the zigzagging all about? That’s due to special flight regulations requiring pilots to stick to certain routes in order to have enough time to reach an airport in case of an emergency landing. - Take it from experienced flight crews from around the world: they beg you to leave your backless sandals and high heels at home and go for sturdier shoes. - There’s a tradition that dispatchers congratulate pilots on all holidays. Just imagine: around Christmas time, a pilot can have up to 4 flights a day, which means about 2,000 people wishing them a Merry Christmas. - Even if someone is a genius, hooked on realistic flight simulators, or ready and willing to follow all the instructions from ground control, he’s still likely to fail due to one simple thing: stress! - Flight attendants are paid only for in-flight hours. Time spent on the ground doesn’t count. The only thing that airlines offer is a small allowance for every hour spent at the airport. - When one pilot needs to use the restroom, a flight attendant must join the other pilot in the cockpit and wait until the first one returns from his bathroom break. - Tasteless airplane food is nobody’s fault but science. At high altitudes, our taste buds and sense of smell can play tricks on us. - When on a plane, go for comfortable clothes with breathable fabrics. It’ll help you tremendously when you’re trying to fall asleep. - Did you know that the door to the cockpit is bulletproof? It’s true! It’s designed to stop bullets and even small grenades. - The freshest air is near the front of the plane, and the warmest temperature in the back. - Pilots give a special signal to the airport when they’re landing: they leave the plane’s wing flaps up. It’s one of the ways to show that there’s something bad happening on the plane. - When you experience a hard landing in bad weather, it doesn’t mean that the pilot is a newbie or lacks the know-how. In fact, sometimes they do it intentionally. - Dimming the cabin lights helps passengers’ eyes adjust from the bright light of the cabin to the dim nighttime light on the ground. - There’s only enough oxygen in the masks for just a quarter of an hour, but you shouldn't panic. This is plenty of time for the pilot to take the plane to a lower altitude where you can breathe normally.

10 Signs Your House Is Being Watched by Robbers

How to know if your house is being watched by burglars? Many people protect their homes. Some choose alarms; others rely on strong doors with complex locks. Some go even further by installing security cameras, LED lights, smart locks, and high-tech security gadgets. But even the most observant people don’t always notice that robbers have already started to watch their home and are waiting for the right moment to make a move. Pay attention to details that can be connected with theft, even if they seem trivial at first sight. In today’s video, we’ve prepared a list of signs that should help you stay alert. TIMESTAMPS: Missing garbage 1:24 The disappearance of your dog 2:20 An empty gas tank 3:06 A new janitor 3:57 A broken window 4:37 Problems with lights 5:22 Ads and stickers 6:03 Strange marks 7:24 Calls from unknown numbers 8:10 A broken lock 9:03 #homesafe #robbers #burglarytricks Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - You should make it a rule and a habit to always tear up papers with personal information into small pieces before throwing them away. - Dogs guarding a house are a burden for robbers. That’s why they may try to get rid of the “guardian” by drawing it outside when the owners are not at home. - To prevent their potential victims from coming home earlier, robbers may drain the gasoline from their car. In the worst-case scenario, you won’t be able to get to a gas station, which means you’ll get back home even later. - If you use the services of a cleaning company and you always see the same worker, the appearance of a new cleaner should worry you. Be extra cautious if the company itself didn’t inform you of the change in personnel. - Some criminals may throw stones at a car or house window to check if the owners are at home and whether the alarm works. - If you live in a private house and there are lanterns with motion sensors installed in your yard, check them immediately if they appear to be malfunctioning. - Commercial flyers are annoying pieces of trash, but little did you know that they can be used against you. Robbers mark easily accessible homes with the help of commercial flyers and simple stickers. - Erase any suspicious marks that appear on the door of your home, on garden lanterns, or simply near your home. - To find out at what time the owners of a home are absent, robbers call the home phone and drop a call. If a small child picks up the phone, robbers can try to get some information from them. - A malfunctioning lock or scratches on a door are signs that somebody has tried to get into your house. Take action right away!

12 Unexpected Etiquette Rules from Around the World

Do you know other countries’ food etiquette rules? 🍽 When you travel abroad and try the local cuisine, you might notice how a certain country’s table manners are very different from your own. Here are 12 quite unexpected food etiquette rules from across the globe! 🌎 TIMESTAMPS: Don’t use forks in Thailand 1:10 Don’t “clean your plate” in China 1:55 Be ready to share a plate in Ethiopia 2:39 In Italy, you’ll insult the chef if you ask for extra cheese 3:22 Don’t ask for salt and pepper in Portugal 4:05 Be careful with chopsticks in Japan 4:45 Don’t touch food with your left hand in the Middle East 5:32 Don’t just sip on your wine in Georgia 6:18 Don’t fill your own glass in Japan 6:56 Only drink cappuccino before noon in Italy 7:32 Guests are welcomed with half a cup of tea in Kazakhstan 8:21 A clean teapot is a teapot without a soul in China 9:17 Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - In Thailand, picking food up with a fork is considered bad form. However, you are allowed to push food onto a spoon using a fork… that’s it! - In China, however, it’s impolite to finish eating everything on your plate. Empty plates indicate that a host hasn’t served enough food and guests are still hungry. - As you sit at the table in Ethiopia waiting for someone to give you a plate to eat from, you might miss the actual meal! Everyone else will just eat from one large serving plate in the middle of the table without using any cutlery. - Although Italians do love this product, it’s considered rude to ask for extra cheese. It may insult the chef because they take it as you not liking the dish the way they’ve prepared it and wanting to change it. - If you ask for salt or pepper in Portugal, you may hurt people’s feelings. It’s kinda like with Italy; the cook may feel insulted by the fact that you need to “spice up” the dish they’ve served you. - According to tradition, people place chopsticks vertically during funerals. In a restaurant, doing this may insult the owner. - In the Middle East, India, and some African countries, the left hand is used for…uh…cleaning yourself up after going to the bathroom. - If you find yourself at a dinner party in Japan and wine is involved, never get a refill yourself. You’re supposed to fill the glass of the person sitting next to you at the table, and they’ll return the favor. - Italians do drink cappuccinos, of course, but it’s mostly a breakfast drink or even a substitute for breakfast. But if you drink this milky foamy coffee later in the day, it can upset your stomach, at least according to the locals. - When we think “tea ceremony,” we usually associate it with the UK and all their fancy tea-drinking etiquette. But it turns out there are plenty of tea fans in Kazakhstan, and they’ve got rules when it comes to drinking it as well. - If you’ve been invited to a tea ceremony in China and offer your help with the dishes afterwards, don’t even think about washing that teapot! The Chinese don’t wash teapots, especially traditional clay ones, with dish liquid.

Manufacturing plywood boards: then and now

Plywood is a simple material made by glueing together thin sheets of wood, known as veneers or plies. These basic elements have remained broadly the same throughout its history. The most significant breakthrough in its production came in the early 1800s with the development of steam-powered machines that could cut veneers cheaply. The most influential of these was the rotary veneer cutter. The cutter rotates a log against a wide, horizontal blade, causing it to ‘peel’ into a continuous sheet of wood. This enables the creation of longer, wider sheets of veneer than previously possible and with little waste. Using these machines meant that plywood could be manufactured quickly and inexpensively on a large scale. This film shows the stages in manufacturing plywood boards in the mid-20th century and today. The process remains essentially unchanged, although today many of the machines are much faster and computer controlled. Produced as part of the V&A exhibition Plywood: Material of the Modern World (15 July – 12 November 2017) https://www.vam.ac.uk/plywood Sponsored by MADE.COM.

According to FBI statistics, around 1.5 million burglaries took place in the US alone in 2017. But is there a way to protect your home from burglars if you can’t afford an expensive security system? Bright Side has collected simple yet effective tips that will help you protect your home and even discourage thieves from breaking into your property.

One of the popular way to enter a property is through first-floor windows. FBI reports show that around 23% of burglars in the US choose this way of entering homes. That’s why you should consider installing grilles if you live on the first or second floor. Don’t forget that you should have an escape route in case of an emergency, so buy grilles that can be unlocked. If you want to know what other ways to protect your home are, watch the video!

TIMESTAMPS:
Hide valuable belongings while strangers are in your home 0:43
Don’t let a thief hear your phone ringing 1:29

SUMMARY:
- While a plumber is fixing something under your sink, they have enough time to have a look around. They can turn out to be bad guys who inform their accomplices.
- Some thieves get creative and use a landline phone trick where they call your home phone and wait for an answer. If no one picks up a phone, it means that nobody’s home.
- The locks most at risk of lock snapping are cylinder ones; the most complicated locks are those that can be opened with lever keys.
- Make it easy for the police to identify your house. Put a large reflective number on your house and mailbox. Burglars like to get into dark houses to win some extra moments to get out again.
- Thieves are scared of being caught. A simple but extremely effective way of scaring them off is putting out a sign that says “Protected Property.” This trick will make burglars think twice before breaking in.
- If you’re throwing away the box from a new TV or refrigerator, you’re likely to attract potential burglars who’ll want to steal your new item. To avoid trouble, tear the box apart before throwing it away.
- Imagine you’re leaving your home for a while. You’re already in the street, and you suddenly notice a strange person. They might be waiting for you to leave so they can break in. Don’t be shy! Turn around, and wave your hand as if someone stayed at home.
- If you notice scratches on your lock, it might mean that burglars have tried to open it. Before you open the door and enter your home, check your lock so that you can react quickly if there’s an emergency.
- If windows are curtained for a few days in a row, it can indicate that nobody’s home as there aren’t many people who like to live without sunlight.
- To turn an ordinary fence into a barrier, plant something with abrasive foliage (like a dog rose or dewberry plant). You can also plant roses right under your windows.
- You should be careful with unfamiliar service companies that call and ask questions about your workplace and hours or about the people who live with you. It’s one of the methods thieves use to find out the history of a property and the most suitable time for breaking in.
