Travel / Re: Reason Commercial Airplanes Dont Have Parachutes Onboard For Passengers(Pics) by papaejima1: 10:12am On Mar 19, 2019

I do like your reasoning..... and really wherever someone ends up they can be located by GPS...that shouldn't be an issue. Now the part quoted... that's where the whole parachute thing would not be effective. Parachutes for individuals...or for the entire cabin section (which I like better)... need to be deployed at a certain height. Since planes usually go into distress during take off and landing...they will not be at the height for parachutes to be effective.
I was going to make the point that passengers bailing out at 30K to 38K feet will have breathing, pressure, hypothermia problems...but like you said... emergencies will not require a bailout at such heights. But then.... parachutes for the fat ones?...babies?...how will that work? More reasons why I'll prefer the cabin option...but.... all this be NL armchair brainstorming!

Parachutes can carry any human weight bro, fat, slim, adult or baby. I am yet to see any human weighing more than 300kg. Better a broken limb than dead.
Remember that the device is automatic and does not need human input to activate and deploy, so if anyone can wear it and get off the plane, the system takes over and guarantees some chance of survival as against the other option of fields strewn with charred bodies and luggage.

Much as this is a concept, more thought can be put into it to refine it.

Travel / Re: Reason Commercial Airplanes Dont Have Parachutes Onboard For Passengers(Pics) by papaejima1: 8:00pm On Mar 17, 2019

Last resort how?

Did you read the parachuting is pre-planned?

They plan when, where, and how they jump before going airborne.

There is max speed/height when parachuting and this can only happen when a plane is in a good or normal working condition.

To have a plane where passenger can jump, there must be ramp at the back just like the military and cargo planes.

When there's emergency at about 30,000ft, then the crew will ask all passengers, over 200 to pick up their parachutes/gears including passengers with toddlers/babies, and the old.

After that, they will ask them to be on a single file and move to the rear end of the plane.

Then they start jumping, where's the landing sport? Ocean, Desert, Jungle, thousands of miles to civilization.

Think about rescue operation, picking up over 200 people scattered in the sea, desert or jungle.

There's nothing too difficult implementing a parachute system within commercial airlines. All these excuses you hear are just what they are, excuses! And it all boils down to economy.

Now let me explain.
Every aircraft seat is already a flotation device in case of a crash into the sea. In the event of an emergency, oxygen masks automatically drop for passengers to use too. Now, to get this system to work, a parachute is installed at the bottom of the seat complete with altimeter, a beacon and barometer which automatically connect to a GPS satellite.

The plane has a cargo hold which can be modified to act as a slide ramp or escape chute.

When the emergency arises, the time passengers take to wear oxygen masks can also be used to strap on the extra shoulder harnesses that indirectly acts as seat belts. The floor is opened from within the craft to connect the cargo hold, and the external chute is opened. Each passenger slides into the hold and out the chute. The altimeter, barometer and beacon are automatically activated by the pilot from the cockpit before the evacuation.

The parachute deploys automatically at the right altitude based on GPS readings.

The passengers need not even know a thing about controlling it. They simply land safely, that's all that matters, then search and rescue home in on their beacons to locate them.

Even if they fall into the sea, the flotation devise still keeps them afloat until rescue comes.

This is just one scenario. I could give you more based on dedicated escape pods that can carry 10 persons apiece. The important thing isn't the cost, it is to save lives. The dead count no costs.

Also, the argument about height/altitude is nonsense. Aircrafts don't crash at 30,000 feet! They crash on the ground! Every aircraft must fall to a safe altitude for people to jump out before getting to the ground no matter how high it flies.

It is simple to offer it as an option, just like you do for first class and business class etc. Or A/C and Non A/C buses in road transport. Those who want can take such aircrafts, those who don't want can fly normal if they so desire.

Politics / Re: Rivers Law Maker Who Called President Buhari A Lair Exposed by papaejima1: 1:37am On Dec 24, 2018
Yea, like the completed Ogwashi-ukwu dam.
Buhari tells the truth 10 times before waking up.

Hon. Chinda (PDP, Rivers) booed Nigeria's President Buhari during his budget presentation yesterday. He yelled 'lies' when the president said "we have started work on the long-neglected Bodo - Bonny Bridge to connect these long separated communities."

I noticed that the President stared down at the lawmaker, himself a former activist. I became curious as a reporter, knowing one of them must be saying the truth.

Today, I got two longtime friends and comrades Fyneface Fyneface and AkpoBari Celestine who come from Ogoni (the axis of the country where the road/bridge is located) to fact-check the claim. The two of them told me Mr President was telling the truth and Chinda was playing politics. The two of them said Julius Berger is handling the work and that work is ongoing.

Now, I see this as a very irresponsible politics. I wonder how Chinda's constituents would feel watching him behaving that way -- especially when he was the one lying! Our public officials should learn to draw a line between politics and governance. I am disappointed with Chinda and all his ilk!

This is a teaching moment for Nigeria and Nigerians in general. We copied democracy from America, but we practice democracy upside down.

Republicans and Democrats in America don't tolerate such disrespect and assault on the presidency, especially @ Congress.

The lawmaker was made to apologize to the president and to the general public.

The NASS leadership should have forced the lawmakers involved to apologize to the president or they themselves apologize on behalf of their members and their own failure to control their own NASS.

The American government too does not disobey court judgements and flout the rule of law

Will Ethnic Violence Tear Nigeria Apart?

An exclusive interview with Kayode Ogundamisi, national secretary of
the Odua People's Congress

Since President Olusegun Obasanjo came to power in May 1999 as the
country's first democratically elected leader in more than 15 years,
thousands have been killed in clashes between Nigeria's main ethnic
groups. The problem has been exacerbated by the re-introduction of
Islamic Shari'a law in the predominately Muslim north and calls by
many groups for greater autonomy within the federation. Violence
flared this month in the commercial capital Lagos, where more than 100
people were killed in clashes between Yoruba nationalists from the
south and Hausa from the north.

President Obasanjo says he is working to end the violence. He blames
recent problems on the Odua People's Congress, a fast growing
"cultural and social group" representing Yoruba interests. Police
recently arrested the group's mild mannered leader Frederic Fasheun, a
physician, and 41 other members, charging them with murder, illegal
possession of arms, and arson. TIME's Nairobi bureau chief Simon
Robinson talked with OPC national secretary Kayode Ogundamisi, who
escaped police custody at Lagos airport before flying to the Kenyan
capital via Ivory Coast. "People haven't heard our side of the story,"
says Ogundamisi. "They're just spreading rumors that we are a
terrorist group and that we are just rag-tags in the streets."


TIME: How did the latest violence begin?

Ogundamisi: The state of insecurity in Lagos has become alarming.
Armed robbers have taken over the state. The police are corrupt and
inefficient. You call the police and they never turn up. So OPC
members have formed vigilante groups. The landlords now have to rely
on the OPC to protect them. But because of the viciousness of these
robbers we see some vigilantes lynch them when they catch them.
Because in most cases when they hand them over to the police, the
police will give them the names of the vigilantes and the armed
robbers will unleash terror on those vigilante groups.

We now have cases where if you pick a Hausa man and you mete out the
same thing you mete out to a Yoruba man, because of the ethnic problem
on the ground, the Hausa community will see it as an attack on the
entire race. This latest case was caused in that way. OPC cadres were
on patrol [in a poor suburb of Lagos] and got a Hausa man with arms
and ammunition. They took him to a Bale [a traditional leader] but the
Hausa got angry and launched an attack. It was not just OPC then. It
became Yoruba against Hausa. It went on for three days. I personally
counted more than 150 bodies. It would have become more than what it
was but we went around other zones and told the Yoruba not to get
involved and calmed our own people down. But the government just
announced that the OPC was the guilty party. And when they sent in the
military, which is dominated by northerners, if you had tribal marks
you were attacked and you started having extra-judicial killings. The
government declared the OPC a violent organization so we went
underground ... They arrested over 40 Yoruba but not one single Hausa.

TIME: Where are the other OPC members?

Ogundamisi: I took 150 with me to Benin where they are hiding out. The
Nigerian government wants to get the leadership, the articulate ones,
so they can paint who's left as hoodlums.

TIME: What will you do when your Kenyan visa expires?

Ogundamisi: I'm going to the Netherlands to hold a press conference on
the same day Fasheun appears in court. We want to let the world know
what the OPC is about. We want to save Nigeria from self-destruction.
So if we do have to take any action, people will understand that, oh,
these people have been pushed to the wall.

TIME: Is the OPC finished as a force?

Ogundamisi: The government thinks it has cut off the head of the OPC.
But there's a new dimension to it: we have formed OPC International. We
had a meeting at the University of Nairobi. Yoruba living in the
Diaspora are advised to come together and take this on. Because if the
world does not know what we actually stand for the government will
paint us as killers. But the OPC is still very much on the ground. I'm
keeping in touch with the cadres via e-mail. I'm telling them not to
act now, just to keep a low profile.

TIME: How many men have you trained to fight for the Yoruba cause?

Ogundamisi: The OPC is nothing less than 4 million people. We have
trained about 75,000 to resist state oppression. We could launch an
attack but that should be the last option. We're getting towards that
now, though. The government cannot continue to kill a race. In a
situation whereby two people have a problem and you keep clamping on
one race it becomes ethnic genocide. And we keep telling them, the cost
of not having a sovereign conference, the cost of not sitting down to
talk about this ethnic problem is more than the cost of doing it.
Nigeria might just end up with what is happening in other African
countries: chaos. You cannot suppress the will of the people. In order
to sustain this democracy we have to solve this ethnic problem. Ethnic
violence in Nigeria is a vicious cycle. It will keep coming up unless
we stop it finally through a sovereign national conference.

TIME: Is the introduction of Shari'a adding to the ethnic problem?

Ogundamisi: That's why our people feel aggrieved. Almost all the
northern states have introduced Shari'a against the constitution. The
government did nothing. That's a form of self-determination. The people
in the north say, 'We want to be an Islamic state,' and they have
declared a law. And we in the south have not even got to that stage. We
are only asking for dialogue. In order to please the north the
government is clamping down on the southwest. The mistake we keep
making in Africa is that if there's a small uprising the government
says it's just some hoodlums. But we shouldn't underestimate the
minority. Democracy is: the majority have their way but the minority
would have their say. Investors are not coming in because it's still
unstable. Forget what the government says, no one wants to invest when
it's so unstable.

TIME: Isn't Nigeria always just on the brink of chaos?

Ogundamisi: Yes, but we shouldn't capitalize on the fact that it's
always surviving the crisis. There might come a time when it will not
survive. It kept surviving until Biafra [the 31-month civil war
beginning in 1967], but when Biafra came it was disastrous. Now it has
reached that peak. There are emotions all over. Even Yorubas who never
supported the OPC are now supporting us.

TIME: Do you think the country should split?

Ogundamisi: No. We want restructuring. Evolve power from the people.
The ethnic nationalities should have control over their resources. The
Ijaws in the Niger Delta should have control over the oil and then pay
tax to the federal government and then pay a percentage to the federal
government, and not the federal government coming to take their oil and
then giving them a stipend. Let the federal government become weak so
that the President cannot just go to the central bank and take [money].
The people in the north don't do anything. There's arid land and all
they do is become oil contractors and they don't produce oil. But if
you restructure, people will be encouraged to go into agriculture. The
north used to be one of the biggest producers of cotton in the world.
Now the north does not do anything. Let us move this nation from that
mediocre state.

angry Even though I'm a born again Christian, i think the federal government needs to swoop on this mad man before he starts a religious war in this country with his misguided utterances. As a believer, the Bible teaches us to pray for the repentance of sinners not curse them. This useless bishop oyedepo is the reason why I'm sometimes ashamed to call myself a Christian. Even our Muslim neighbors have never laid curses on anyone nor instigate violence when fighting for Muslim rights. Organizations like MURIC comes to mind and we have a lot to learn from their way of demanding justice. Oyedepo should be arrested and jailed for incitement. Useless man.

Psalm 109.

6 Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy; let an accuser stand at his right hand. 7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him. 8 May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. 9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. 10 May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. 11 May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor. 12 May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children. 13 May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation. 14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. 15 May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may blot out their name from the earth.
