2023.06.01 15:31 Bubbly_Citron2401 No options to install HVAC in my condo

I own a condo in an old high rise condominium in Northern Virginia where it gets really hot and humid in the summer time. My condo has two HVAC PTAC wall units so it’s connected to the wall and pulling air from the outside of the building. Unfortunately both of them have failed so I have absolutely no A/C.
After doing some research and calling hundreds of HVAC companies to either repaireplace my units/ or just install a completely different kind of HVAC system none of these options are possible. The type of PTAC system that I have is so obsolete that no contractors work with that type of system not even to replace them and no manufacturers are making them anymore. I also looked into getting a mini split but that is also not possible due to the building’s structure, HOA laws, and lack of permits to do so. I’m basically out of options.
Does anyone have any ideas on what I can do? I feel like at this point it’s the HOA’s responsibility to provide us a proper accommodation to install an HVAC system/A/C system.. is this illegal? I really want to take this up with the board to find some sort of solution. A lot of the residents here are elderly and I can’t imagine them going through 98 degree humid weather with no A/C. I’m on the top floor too so it gets HOT…
I know that I can install my own window unit but I want to eventually rent out or sell my unit and that’s just not a good look..
Experts, Please help!!! Here’s a photo of my unit

Tropical Cyclone Freddy is a powerful storm that formed in the Indian Ocean and affected Southern Africa multiple times.
Ranked as a Category 5 storm according to the Saffir-Simpson scale during its first landfall, Freddy became the longest cyclone ever observed in the world. The first time it hit the south of Mozambique was on February 24, 2023, when 1.5 million people suffered from its consequences. On March 11 it returned, affecting the northern regions of the country and then moving to southern Malawi. Freddy caused significant damage to the coastal communities of Mozambique and Malawi, including the destruction of homes, buildings, and infrastructure. The tropical storm also resulted in widespread flooding, which can lead to long-term impacts on the affected communities.
According to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology and the US Joint Typhoon Warning Center, the storm formed on February 6, 2023, in the Indian Ocean northwest of the Australian coast. It began to move west, and the wind force reached 167 mph (270 km/h) at its epicenter. On March 7, it broke the record for the longest-lasting cyclone since weather records began, according to the World Meteorological Organization. By March 11, the storm had already been on the move for 34 days. The previous record holder, John, raged for 31 days in 1994, crossing the Pacific. Freddy also crossed an ocean and thus gained strength. From its birthplace near Australia, it went from east to west across the entire South Indian Ocean toward Africa. In total, Freddy traveled about 5,000 miles (more than 8,000 kilometers). Via Mauritius and La Réunion, the storm finally hit Madagascar on February 21 and Mozambique on February 24.
See what Freddy looked like on RainViewer’s radar animation as of March 5-7. (attached)

In addition to its longevity, Freddy also broke the record in the accumulated cyclone energy (ACE) index - 84.7. It is a metric that weather agencies use to represent the total energy that a tropical cyclone discharges over its duration. So now, as of 2023, Freddy appears to be the most energetic storm on the planet. The previous record holder was Hurricane Ioke in 2006, with an ACE index of 82. Finally, Freddy’s got the highest number of rapid intensification cycles as compared to other tropical cyclones - 7.

2023.06.01 10:01 Civil-Chipmunk9240 Cross Laminated Timber: The Future of Sustainable Construction

Ever wonder how we can build bigger and taller buildings without relying so heavily on concrete and steel? The answer is cross laminated timber or CLT. This innovative wood product is changing the way we construct mid and high-rise buildings. CLT panels are made of layers of wood boards stacked in alternating directions and glued together. The result is a solid, durable panel that can be used for walls, floors, and roofs.
You’ve probably seen CLT buildings popping up in cities around the world and not even realized it. With CLT, architects and designers now have more flexibility and creative freedom. The material is also environmentally friendly since wood is a renewable resource. CLT produces a smaller carbon footprint and less waste compared to concrete and steel construction.
If you care about sustainable design and green building practices, then CLT is something you should know about. This versatile material has the potential to transform skylines while reducing deforestation. The future of construction is here, and it’s made of wood. Who knew? CLT may seem like a simple idea, but it’s revolutionizing the way we build cities.

CLT Compared to Other Building Materials

Compared to traditional building materials like concrete and steel, cross laminated timber (CLT) is the sustainable choice for the future of construction.
● CLT is made from layers of wood boards glued together at right angles, creating panels that are lightweight but extremely strong. The wood comes from sustainably managed forests, so it’s a renewable resource. Unlike concrete and steel, CLT is manufactured with little waste and pollution.
● CLT buildings go up fast. The pre-made panels snap together like Lego pieces, so construction time is cut way down. This means lower labor costs and less disruption for projects in populated areas.
● CLT structures are solid and stable. They stand up to harsh weather and natural disasters like earthquakes as well as or better than concrete and steel. CLT is also naturally insulating, so buildings stay comfortable in any climate without a huge energy bill.
● CLT can be used for walls, floors, and roofs in all types of buildings. It works for high-rises, commercial spaces, and private homes. New wood joinery techniques and wood treatments give CLT a sleek, modern look that fits any style.
● At the end of its lifespan, a CLT building can be dismantled and the wood recycled. No waste goes to the landfill. The carbon stored in the wood continues to be locked away, even in its next use.
CLT is the building material of the future. It’s sustainable, economical, and versatile. As we work to reduce pollution and fight climate change, CLT can transform the way we design and construct spaces where we live, work, and play. The age of timber has arrived!

CLT Projects Around the World

Cross laminated timber (CLT) has been used in major construction projects around the world, showing how versatile and sustainable this material can be.
● In London, the nine-story residential Murray Grove tower was completed in 2009, making it the tallest modern timber building in the UK at the time. The CLT structure went up fast, with one floor installed every three days.
● The seven-story Origine apartment building in Quebec City, Canada was finished in 2017. It’s made from locally-sourced CLT and houses 42 units. The wood helps insulate the building, reducing heating and cooling costs.
● In Norway, the 14-story Mjøstårnet tower holds the record for the world’s tallest timber building. Completed in 2019, the 280-foot tower combines CLT with glulam beams and concrete. It shows how CLT can be used even for skyscrapers.
● New Zealand’s CLT “Pavilion” at the 2010 World Expo in Shanghai, China demonstrated the material’s sustainability and beauty. The pavilion was designed to be easily disassembled and the CLT panels were reused in other buildings after the Expo.
With CLT, the possibilities seem endless. This eco-friendly material can work for homes, mid-rise apartments, offices, schools and more. CLT produces a fraction of the carbon emissions of concrete and steel, so building with it is good for the planet. It’s also cost-competitive, fire-resistant, and provides an attractive wood esthetic.
As CLT continues to gain popularity around the world, we’ll likely see many more stunning and sustainable building projects that push the limits of what can be achieved with timber. The future of green architecture looks solid - literally.

The Future of CLT: Innovation and Advancements

The future of CLT design looks bright. As the material and building techniques become more widely adopted, CLT is poised to transform sustainable construction.

Cost Savings

As CLT production increases, costs are decreasing significantly. CLT panels are also faster to install than traditional materials, reducing labor costs and construction timelines. Some estimates indicate CLT can reduce total building costs by up to 25% compared to concrete. Lower costs mean CLT could be accessible to more commercial and residential projects.

New Innovations

CLT is an ideal material for innovative building designs. Curved walls, intricate facades, and open-concept spaces are all possible with CLT. Architects are experimenting with CLT to push the boundaries of sustainable design. Some new innovations include:
● Curved CLT: Thin layers of CLT can be bent and shaped into curves for walls and roofs. Curved CLT offers new esthetic possibilities for buildings.
● CLT Tubes: CLT tubes or arches are self-supporting structures made from curved CLT. They can span large distances without interior supports.
● CLT Doors and Windows: CLT panels can be precision cut to create doors, windows, and skylights. These custom pieces are seamlessly integrated into CLT builds.
● Modular CLT: CLT modules are pre-fabricated boxes or sections that can be assembled on-site. Modular CLT speeds up construction and allows for flexible, reconfigurable spaces.

Carbon Storage

As forests regrow, CLT panels continue to store carbon absorbed by the trees. It’s estimated 1 cubic meter of CLT can store up to 1 ton of CO2. Widespread use of CLT in buildings could significantly offset carbon emissions. Some countries offer carbon credits for CLT projects to promote its environmental benefits.
The future of sustainable building is here. CLT is a high-performance, eco-friendly material that enables innovative designs, cost efficiencies and carbon storage. As CLT becomes more advanced and affordable, it will transform how we construct spaces for living, working and learning. The possibilities for this wood wonder are endless!


So there you have it, the basics on cross laminated timber and why it should be on your radar. This innovative building material is poised to transform construction as we know it. Not only is it environmentally friendly, helping curb deforestation and reduce emissions, but it's also cost effective and design flexible.
CLT allows architects and builders to create stunning structures that push the envelope of modern architecture. As CLT gains mainstream popularity around the world, sustainable and affordable housing may become more accessible. The future is looking bright, and it's made of wood. What an exciting time to be part of the green building movement!

2023.06.01 03:17 Nadeshot_ Best weather app?

Hiya there fellow pilot and redditors! Hope everyone is doing well and good!!!
I am kind of having a crisis here 😳😅😂 I am not sure which weather app to use or which is the best app to predict weather while planning flights, (PS. I do use aviation, leidos flight service) but I am just looking for the perfect free app that gives me satellite and radar view.
Currently I use:- 1.Ventusky 2. My Radar, 3. Windy (kinda hard to interpret as it's to cluttered, imo) 4. StationWX (recently discovered but not much usability if you don't get the premium version) 5. I also use Garmin Pilot app for flying and I use the weather data supplemented to it via wifi/mobile network or by fis-b
So could you guys please suggest me some good weather apps!?
Ps. I'm a pvt. Pilot and Omw to IR checkride

"누리호 성공, 우주강국 G7 쾌거"
과거 발사와 달리 실제 위성 실려
한국형발사체 누리호( KSLV-II )가 지난 25일 성공적으로 발사돼 위성들을 계획된 궤도에 안착시켰다.
위성 모형을 실었던 이전 두 차례의 발사와 달리 실제 위성을 탑재한 '첫 실전 발사'다..

25일 한국항공우주연구원(항우연)에 따르면 누리호는 이날 오후 6시24분 예정대로 이륙해 모든 발사 과정이 정상 진행됐다.

당초 발사 예정일은 24일이었지만 기술적 문제가 생기면서 발사가 하루 미뤄졌다.

발사 일정이 연기된 것은 2차 발사할 때도 있었던 일이다. 당시 누리호가 기립한 상태에서 초속 7m의 강풍이 불어 발사가 한 차례 지연됐고, 산화제 탱크 센서에서 이상이 발견되면서 발사가 또 연기됐다.
결국 원래 일정에서 6일 지난 지난해 6월21일 2차 발사가 이뤄졌다.

24일은 2차 발사 당시보다 기상 상황이 좋았지만, 저온 헬륨을 공급하는 밸브 제어 과정에서 문제가 발생했다.
오태석 과학기술정보통신부 1차관은 브리핑에서 "저온 헬륨을 공급하는 밸브를 제어하는 과정에서 발사 제어 컴퓨터와 발사대 설비를 제어하는 컴퓨터 간 통신 이상이 발생했다"며 "발사 하루 전인 어제 오전 점검 과정에서는 해당 문제가 발생하지 않았으나 발사 당일인 24일 오후 3시경에 문제가 발생했다"고 설명했다.

누리호 발사관리위원회는 전날 누리호 점검 과정에서 발생한 이상 상황에 대한 조치를 완료하고 25일 같은 시간 누리호를 3차 발사했다.
차세대 소형위성 2호를 시작으로 20초 간격으로 큐브위성 등 8기 위성을 분리하는 데 성공한 누리호는 발사 1138초 후 비행을 종료했다.

이번 발사는 누리호가 목표 궤도에 진입해 차세대 소형위성 2호를 안전하게 분리했다는 점에서 성공적이라고 평가받는다.
윤석열 대통령은 "우리나라가 우주 강국 G7 (주요 7개국)에 들어갔음을 선언하는 쾌거"라며 "자체 제작한 위성을 자체 제작한 발사체에 탑재하여 우주 궤도에 올린 나라는 미국, 프랑스, 일본, 러시아, 중국, 인도밖에 없다"고 평가했다.

윤 대통령은 이어 "전 세계에서 대한민국의 우주과학 기술과 첨단산업을 바라보는 시각이 크게 바뀔 것"이라며 "누리호 3차 발사는 8개 실용위성을 궤도에 진입시킨 것으로, 1개의 실험 위성을 궤도에 진입시킨 2차 발사에서 엄청나게 진일보한 것"이라고 강조했다.

이번 발사가 '첫 실전 발사'라 불린 이유는 실제 위성이 실리기 때문이다.
이전 두 차례의 발사는 사실상 누리호의 성능 검증에 초점을 뒀었다. 2021년 10월 21일 1차 발사 때는 위성 모사체를 탑재했고, 지난해 6월 2차 발사에서는 위성 모사체와 함께 성능검증 위성과 큐브 위성 4개를 실었다.
누리호의 이번 임무는 고도 550km에서 실용급 위성 8기를 궤도에 올리는 것이었다.

이호성 한국항공우주연구원 박사는 24일 YTN '뉴스라이브'와 인터뷰에서 "위성 모사체가 실린 지난 발사는 (실제 위성과) 무게만 맞췄고, 그것이 어디에 있는지 확인하기 위한 장치만 기본적으로 있었다"며 "이번에는 실제로 위성이 배터리를 갖고 신호를 보여주면서 활동을 한다. 또 국내에서 개발한 여러 탑재물을 우주 환경에서 시험한다는 큰 의미가 있다"고 설명했다.

함께 실리는 차세대 소형위성 2호에도 순수 국산 기술로 개발된 영상 레이더( SAR ) 장비가 장착됐다.
이 박사는 "옛날에는 광학으로 봤는데 이 위성을 통해 레이더로 관측을 하게 돼서 비가 오거나 구름이 오거나 이것도 다 볼 수 있게 된다"고 설명했다.

다만 전력 소비가 많다 보니 항상 햇빛을 받아 전력을 충전해야 한다.
차세대 소형위성이 태양동기궤도 중에서도 승교점을 통과하는 여명-황혼 궤도(고도 550㎞)에 반드시 올라가야 하는 이유다..

The ruling and opposition parties congratulate Nuri with one voice... "I'm one of the world's top 7 space powerhouses"
The Korean-style projectile Nuri (KSLV-II), developed with Korea's own technology, is being launched from the Naro Space Center in Goheung County, South Jeolla Province, on the afternoon of the 25th.

"Nuri succeeded. Space powerhouse G7 made it"

Unlike past launches, it's actually loaded with satellites

The Korean launch vehicle Nuri (KSLV-II) was successfully launched on the 25th, landing the satellites in a planned orbit.

Unlike the previous two launches that carried satellite models, it is the "first real launch" equipped with an actual satellite..

According to the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (Hang Woo-yeon) on the 25th, the Nuri took off as scheduled at 6:24 p.m. on the same day, and all launch processes proceeded normally.

The launch date was originally scheduled for the 24th, but the launch was delayed by a day due to technical problems.

The delay in the launch schedule occurred during the second launch. At that time, the launch was delayed once due to strong winds of 7 meters per second while the Nuri stood up, and the launch was delayed again as abnormalities were found in the oxidant tank sensor.

In the end, the second launch took place on June 21 last year, six days after the original schedule.

On the 24th, weather conditions were better than at the time of the second launch, but problems occurred in the process of controlling valves that supply low-temperature helium.

"There was a communication problem between the launch control computer and the computer that controls the launch pad facility while controlling the valve that supplies low-temperature helium," Oh Tae-seok, the first vice minister of science and ICT, said in a briefing.

The Nuri Launch Management Committee completed measures for abnormal situations that occurred during the Nuri inspection process the previous day and launched the Nuri for the third time on the 25th.

Starting with the next-generation small satellite 2, Nuri, which succeeded in separating eight satellites, including the Cube satellite, every 20 seconds, ended its flight 1,138 seconds after launch.

The launch is considered successful in that Nuri entered its target orbit and safely separated the next-generation small satellite 2.

President Yoon Suk Yeol said, "It is a great thing to declare that Korea has entered the G7 (seven major countries)," adding, "The United States, France, Japan, Russia, China, and India are the only countries that have put their own satellites into space on their own projectiles."

"The world's view of Korea's space science technology and high-tech industries will change significantly," President Yoon said. "The third launch of Nuri is a huge step forward from the second launch that entered one experimental satellite."

The reason why this launch was called the "first real launch" is that the actual satellite is loaded.

The previous two launches had effectively focused on verifying the performance of the Nuri. During the first launch on October 21, 2021, a satellite simulation body was mounted, and in the second launch in June last year, a performance verification satellite and four Cube satellites were loaded along with the satellite simulation body.

The mission was to put eight practical satellites into orbit at an altitude of 550 kilometers.

Dr. Lee Ho-sung of the Korea Aerospace Research Institute said in an interview with YTN's "News Live" on the 24th, "The last launch with the satellite mimic only weighed (with the actual satellite), and there was only a device to check where it was." It is also very meaningful to test various payloads developed in Korea in a space environment," he explained.

The next-generation small satellite No. 2 is also equipped with image radar (SAR) equipment developed with pure domestic technology.

Dr. Lee explained, "In the past, we looked at it with optics, but we can observe it with radar through this satellite, so we can see all of this, whether it's raining or clouds."

However, since power consumption is high, it is always necessary to charge power by receiving sunlight.

This is why the next-generation small satellite must go up to the dawn-dusk orbit (550km altitude) that passes through the Seunggyo point among the solar synchronous orbit..

Discussion by: Dr. Philippe Papin, John Cangialosi, and Daniel Brown — NHC Hurricane Specialists
Showers and thunderstorms associated with an area of low pressure over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico have increased and become better organized during the overnight hours. Environmental conditions appear marginally favorable for additional development over the next day or so, and a short-lived tropical depression or storm could form over that time span as the system meanders over the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. However, by this weekend environmental conditions are forecast to become unfavorable for additional development as the system drifts southward, likely remaining offshore over the Gulf of Mexico. An Air Force Reserve Hurricane Hunter aircraft is scheduled to investigate the system later today, if necessary.
Regardless of development, locally heavy rainfall could occur over portions of the Florida Peninsula through this weekend. Additional information on the rainfall and flooding potential can be found in products issued by your local National Weather Service forecast office and Excessive Rainfall Outlooks issued by the Weather Prediction Center.

2023.05.31 21:15 anotherronism Outside Your Preferences turns into Towards Your Destination in 5 seconds

This is the latest driver manipulation by Uber. Destination mode is basically just driver theater, we all know that. They pretend to honor your destination mode request when they send trip radar request. The request actually says outside of your preferences. But what Uber is doing now is if nobody accepts that job they turn right around and give it back to you but now suddenly it is towards your destination. I was in Leesburg Virginia today driving to Mount Airy Maryland in destination mode and they gave me a job first in trip radar that was outside of my preferences and then came right back with it as a regular job towards my destination. The destination is falls Church Virginia. I invite you to look at a map and tell me on what planet is falls Church Virginia on the way to my Mount Airy destination from Leesburg Virginia.

2023.05.31 17:51 bobbyOrrMan What is the little bush with the tiny purple flowers that smell amazing?

The smell was closer to mint or eucalyptus or something like that. I'd know it if I smelled it again.
My mom had them in her garden. She is no longer with us so she cant tell me. The little bush itself died a couple years ago so nothing to identify.
If it helps narrow things down, her home was in west virginia but it appears the weather was a little too warm and even with lots of watering they could not survive. (like a couple of summers were over 100 degrees)
It was in fact lavender. However I could not identify it because it was shaped differently. My mothers' lavender was a perfect little round bush and no stalks popping out. The flowers made it look like a little purple ball. She had 3 of them and they all died before they could get very big or before any stalks could shoot outward from the body.
Since I cannot edit the title of my own thread, I guess I'll have to hope people read this.
I figured it out after a trip to the local nursery and sticking my nose in everything. And course, scent is directly linked to memory so it did not take very long. I dont think I will replant it. Needs lots of water and balanced weather. This part of the country is too hot right now.

2023.05.31 17:35 intersecting_lines +EV Homer Plays for today => +3.1% EV ATL Matt Olson (+265 FD)

What is +EV betting. tldr, one of the only ways to be profitable in the long term betting on home runs since home run lines are usually juiced to the tits. You basically are trying to find sportsbooks and markets that have mispriced odds in the bettors favor. You aren't looking into stats, pitching matchups, weather, or ballpark rankings. As ActionNetwork puts it
EV betting is not about what you think will happen, but about an advantage you have over the implied probabilities of bets by using lines and information sportsbooks are already giving you
I use a devigger to remove the sportsbooks vig and to calculate +EV against a sharp book like bet365. I choose bet365 because it has one of the lowest vigs on home runs out of all sportsbooks and is widely popular. This is what the smartest people look for in the dinger tuesday threads to ensure profitability over the long-term.
These aren't guarantees, these guys are NOT likely to home run on a given day, but if you take enough +EV plays over a long period of time, you should end up profitable. My record since starting posting: 16W-58L (+18.20u)
My Picks (I take all +EV plays for $5 unless your name is Gallo. I'm posting the odds I got them at...make sure to check odds because lines move fast on fanduel HRs)
7.3% EV: ATL Matt Olson +280 FD vs bet365 +220/-280. Implied = 28.2%
All updated EVs combined with negative EV plays close to 0 (I don't bet if negative EV but they have the chance of becoming +EV with a slight odds change, so keep on radar)

2023.05.31 15:48 HelloBello30 Most and least desirable places to play from a city/state/province POV?

I specify the POV because I don't want to focus on organizations who have bad management or have something else that is otherwise fixable. I am more curious about your thoughts on unchangeable factors.
For example, IMO, Tampa and Florida seem to have a significant advantage due to nice weather, low taxes, and players can mostly fly under the radar when they step outside their house. Canadian teams are generally the exact opposite. If I was an NHL player, these are all highly relevant factors I would consider when thinking about where to sign as a free agent. I wonder just how much this sort of thing has historically hurt Canadian teams, resulting in their overall lack of recent success in getting the cup.

2023.05.31 14:21 ClayCrucible Instrument checkride write-up - success!

I passed my instrument checkride yesterday (yay!) and I thought it might help other folks who are working on instrument or thinking about it for the future if I shared my write-up. My flight school sends pretty much all of their students to the same DPE, so they had a tremendous amount of information about past checkrides to share with me, and they asked me to do a write-up of my own. An edited version of that is what follows!
TLDR: I started instrument training three months ago, did the written before any flight lessons, added 50 hours to my logbook in those three months, and passed the checkride with just barely enough instrument hours to qualify (I had to time build a bit in the past month). DPE said I did great, even though I had some nerves and we changed the flight plan a lot in the air!

Background: I began my instrument training about three months ago with the Sporty’s videos for ground school, Sheppard Air for test prep, and a perfect score on my written before my first instrument lesson. I started instrument training with another flight school in a simulator for a G1000 Cessna 172 for two lessons before I decided I wanted to be able to fly the Cirrus SR22, so I switched to NoVA Pilots (Leesburg, Virginia, KJYO) for instrument plus Cirrus transition training. I came into this training with about 110 total hours, most of the 50 PIC cross country I needed, but only 4.0 of the 40 hours of instrument time I would ultimately need. Zero hours in Cirrus aircraft, though I did have my high-performance endorsement from Cessna 182 training.
Instrument training: I started flying as much as possible throughout the end of March, all of April, and the first half of May. I did a total of 22 flight lessons, plus a handful of flights on my own or with a safety pilot once I had enough experience to solo the SR22. I did two flights that qualified for the long cross country, with the one I highlighted for the checkride going from Leesburg to Charlottesville, Baltimore, Harrisburg, and Martinsburg, with two ILS approaches, one VOR, and one RNAV GPS. I went into the checkride with 3.7 hours of actual instrument and 38.6 simulated, or 42.3 total. My logbook ended up with 160 total hours.
Checkride prep: I did four total mock checkrides, two each with two different instructors. The flights were exactly what the DPE planned for us to fly, though different from what we ended up flying! For the oral, I had all of the materials the DPE asked for in his email from ten days prior to the checkride, and I printed out everything that would otherwise be electronic (mainly a copy of my Foreflight logbook, the flight plan, performance calculations for the scenario flight, personal minimums). I arrived to the conference room an hour before the scheduled start time and arranged materials in four areas:
· Pilot qualifications: Pilot certificate, medical certificate, ID, knowledge test results, ground school certificate from Sporty’s, SFRA training certificate, Cirrus icing course certificate (not required, but nice to have), logbook with endorsements, printed copy of my IACRA form.
· Airplane qualifications: Engine logbook, propeller logbook, airframe logbook with Post-It notes for the relevant sections (annual / 100 hour, pitot-static inspection, transponder inspection, etc.). I also had the NoVA Pilots binder to show current hours on the engine, plus the POH (since no one else was flying the plane that morning).
· Documents for the flight scenario: Weight and balance, aircraft performance (takeoff and landing distances), ICAO flight plan, NAV log from Foreflight, Leidos Flight Service full briefing report including weather and NOTAMs (80 pages). I don’t think we used any of this during the test – for the flight plan we used Foreflight on my iPad, and we just talked through the rest.
· Reference materials: Physical copies of the FAAIM and ACS, printouts of diagrams for electrical, fuel, and pitot-static systems, PilotsCafe reference sheet. The latter came in handy and the DPE liked it – he had a copy of his own on hand.
Oral examination: We took around two hours total for the oral, starting with the qualifications and electronically signing IACRA. The DPE explained what he would ask about, the ability to take breaks, the plan for the day (oral, then a lunch break, then flight).
Questioning was straightforward. Beyond my flailing on whether the transponder inspection was required every 24 months or 12 months for a minute, I was able to answer questions satisfactorily. Lots of focus on risk and options.
· Always keep fuel in mind – if given a hold with a 30 minute EFC time, how does that affect planning? I might request a route elsewhere, and I would definitely let ATC know if I’m in a “minimum fuel” situation, which is different from “emergency fuel”.
· If my glideslope fails while on an ILS, I can fly it to localizer minimums, and I need to let ATC know about the equipment failure.
· Know about icing and where it can form. If there’s no AIRMET Zulu for icing even if it’s cold enough, there’s still risk of unexpected moisture or perhaps it’s only light icing, which doesn’t get an AIRMET but is still a problem. If there are no PIREPs, maybe that means no one else is foolish enough to fly! And even though I’m flying a FIKI certified aircraft, if I encounter icing the plan has to be to get out of it.
· If an ADAHARS fails, this aircraft automatically uses the other as a backup, showing an appropriate notification. What does the POH say about continuing flight in this scenario? Go to the Abnormal Procedures section and see.
· If Alternator 2 fails, what happens? Alternator 1 will keep things going, but the aircraft isn’t approved for IFR flight on one alternator, so getting to the ground where you can get it fixed is important.
· If the static ports somehow both become blocked, there’s an alternate air source.
· MOCA would typically only be used if I need to get low to avoid ice, for instance.
· If I’m flying on Victor airways using GPS and there’s a GPS failure, I can use VOR navigation.
· If I have a passenger who really needs to get to their destination, I’ll make sure I have an alternate way of getting them there (flying commercial, driving). GA means you need to be prepared to scrub a flight for safety at any time.
· Know about circling minimums, circling radius, and the inverted C (white C on the black background). Similarly, know about the inverted T symbol and inverted A symbol (bonus points for inverted A with NA – not authorized for use as an alternate airport, likely because of a lack of weather reporting).
· In the debrief, the DPE pointed me to AIM 1-1-17 to talk about being able to use an expired navigation database if you verify that your waypoints are all correct. I was extra conservative on that question, saying that I would need to update the database before flying.
Flight portion: The DPE fully briefed me on the flight plan ahead of time:
· Depart Leesburg on runway heading, climbing to 1,200 MSL (he originally said 1,300 in the conference room but said 1,200 in the runup area). Expect vectors to Martinsburg airport.
· Fly the ILS 26 at Martinsburg to minimums, expecting to go missed.
· Fly the published missed into the hold at MRB VOR.
· Fly the VODME-A approach to Winchester, circling to whichever runway is in use. Plan to go missed there and then expect vectors to the next approach rather than the published missed.
· Fly the RNAV GPS 32 approach to Winchester, likely starting at either JASEN or DORGY depending on which direction we went after the VODME. Expect to fly this one partial panel with no autopilot. Fly this all the way to a landing – full stop, taxi back.
· And then done! Fly back to Leesburg with no foggles.
That was the briefing, anyway! The DPE explained that he would play the role of Potomac Approach throughout. I didn’t realize at first that this meant that he wanted me to “check in” with him after departure (he had to prompt me for that when I asked if I could climb once we were past the 1,500 foot Bravo shelf).
I tuned Martinsburg weather in COM2 active in the runup area and Martinsburg tower in COM1 standby, with the hope of getting info about which KMRB runway was in use as early as possible. On departure from runway 35, we climbed out on vectors and then direct MAPEL for the ILS 26. No chatter on KMRB tower, and winds were light, but slightly favoring runway 8. As we approached MAPEL and the DPE had “cleared me for the approach” we heard another aircraft check in and receive runway 8. Mild oaths ensued from the DPE, and he “cancelled my approach clearance” and had me “request” the VODME-A to Winchester.
I flew that approach, starting at MRB VOR. Lots of traffic working out of Winchester, and runway 14 was in use. We were in a rough spot for actually squeezing into the pattern for landing, so I descended to pattern altitude (above minimums), turned right to enter left downwind for 14, descended to minimums by the time I turned base, and flew a low approach at minimums over the runway and away to the east.
One approach complete.
The DPE gave me an altitude to climb to and a vector, and cleared me for the ILS 32, cleared direct JASEN. I got myself re-situated with the foggles and the autopilot back on. As we approached JASEN he said we would actually fly this as a localizer approach instead of ILS (so, non-precision). I think this was largely so we wouldn’t get in the way of conflicting traffic coming back off 14, staying higher. I reset the minimums to LOC level and noted my step-down fixes and time component.
Between JASEN and CLADD, the DPE “failed” the autopilot and “failed” the PFD by covering it with an opaque film. I went to reversionary mode and flew the localizer approach by hand, using the MFD. As we got to minimums, another aircraft took off from 14 straight toward us without making a radio call of any sort until they were 200 feet above the ground. We diverted around them to the left (safety pilot call), then turned right over the airport and back to CLADD to fly the published missed.
Two approaches complete.
This was all still hand flying, and the DPE was figuring out his next move as I hand-flew the teardrop hold entry at CLADD. I did a second full lap in the hold (the first one I had to extend a bit to avoid traffic), stressing the whole way about maintaining altitude, airspeed, and the holding course, but I did it!
Hold complete (x2).
Finally, the DPE said that since we were flying a nice, fast SR22, we could fly all the way to the other side of the airport and do the RNAV 14 to LPV minimums for our precision approach (for the purpose of the checkride). Autopilot back on at last, as I navigated us off to the west.
Along the way, the DPE took me through a couple of unusual attitudes. I screwed up the nose low attitude at first, adding power before realizing my mistake and reducing it, but correctly leveling the wings and bringing the nose up. He noted that I jumped the gun a little there but I fixed my mistake, and he was satisfied. He then did a nose-high attitude, which I did fine with. Then back on course with the autopilot.
Unusual attitudes complete.
I had loaded the full RNAV GPS 14 from SOGBE, but the DPE cleared me to ZENDI, originally at 3,700. I requested 4,200 at ZENDI, which he gave me. From there, things were much easier! I correctly configured the autopilot in APR mode, confirming that GP mode was armed, and I babysat the speed and the checklist usage to get us fully on course. I flew the approach to LPV minimums, at which point the DPE told me to go visual and land. This was probably the best landing I’ve ever had in the Cirrus – super gentle and smooth.
Three approaches complete.
I did a full stop taxi back and pulled into the runup area to run my checklist to prepare to return to Leesburg. Then a nice, simple, visual flight back with no drama. The DPE actually pulled out his iPad to take a picture of the airport as we approached 17 on a three-mile final – it was a lovely day. One more nice landing at Leesburg, taxi to park, and my instructor met us at the hangar as the DPE congratulated me! Two hours on the Hobbs for this flight.
Debrief: After putting the plane in the hangar, refueling, and cleaning it up, the DPE and I drove back to the school and my instructor met us there. The DPE had surprisingly little for me in the debrief. He shared a couple of recommendations for continuing my IFR education – IFR Magazine and the Aviation News Talk podcast. He suggested I make my personal minimums a little more conservative. He explained the expired database usability issue. He noted that I could have used FPLN when in reversionary mode to have better awareness of when I had passed each checkpoint (I was a little unsure when hand-flying and started my next descent a bit late, but still got to minimums). That was really it! He complimented my flying and printed my new certificate, and posed for a picture shaking my hand. Wonderful day!

中国火热宣传第1架国产大型客机C919,当地时间28日完成商业首航,正式进入民航市场,要挑战波音与空中巴士。不过遭到美国“战略与国际研究中心”亚洲高级顾问葛来仪贴出一张图打脸,该图分析所谓的“中国国产”,却用了美国、英国与其他国家的主要零件,葛来仪简单结论“Foreign Technologies in the C919”(C919的国外技术)。
外电报导,这架中国号称的大型国产客机的目标,是挑战波音737 MAX 与空中巴士A320 等外国机型,只是,中国从头到尾都标榜的这架“国产”喷气式飞机,包括发动机、航电、控制系统、通信与起落架等,都是从美国和欧洲制造商进口零件。
总部位于柏林的智库墨卡托中国研究所(Merics)曾表示,C919飞机的市场准入,是“中国技术崛起的象徵和民族自豪感的源泉”,C919的主要目的之一,是帮助推进北京在航空领域的“战略目标”,即使 C919 的效率或技术不如竞争对手,中国国有航空公司的政治目标,也可能会填补这个缺陷。

Any idea what’s going on with this?
Sitting in the hot tub I like to see where flights are headed. Saw this one headed south, but bound for Delhi from NYC. Thought they were going to land in Portland for an emergency, but then headed East over Gulf if Maine, then resumed a course that should take them to Delhi.

Flooding potential
Has anyone heard a reliable estimation of how much of the snow pack has melted? It seems the mild weather the past 2 weeks has created a relatively slow melt and kept the water level under 12.5 ft. This model shows a 25-50% chance the valley with close (Merced River >12.5 ft at the Pohono Bridge) in the next 2 weeks but the estimates have been consistently high the past month as I've been tracking estimates (here is another: ).

2023.05.31 01:32 TamerKoh Do you want to live in the Pokemon world?

Just an interesting thought that crossed my mind earlier, and thought it'd be fun to just chat about.
I imagine most people would say yes at the thought of being an actual trainer and what not, but I actually recoiled at some of my thoughts earlier, haha.
Does insurance cover damage by Pokemon? Say a random Dragonite Hyper Beams your house to that covered? Stuff like that could just be a daily basis. It's the same sort of question I have for anyone living in a world with metahumans/superheros like Superman. If Superman yeets your car at a villain, is that insured?
Does weather just suck on a daily basis? I thought we had it bad here in Virginia USA, where it's possible to experience all of the seasons in a single week, but in Pokemon, it's possible to experience all of them in a single day. What's stopping wild and random mon from doing things like Sunny Day or Rain Dance and just making weather absolute hell?
Is it possible to even get a good night's sleep, if trainers are still out and about at all hours of the night, possibly spamming Earthquake to level grind?
Maybe there's oversight to things like this, but you know, considering how strong some of these mon are, it's hard to believe some random people are going to be checking a Groudon, lol.
