image12

What happened to Germanwings Flight 9525? According to reports the co-pilot of the airplane carrying 150 people purposely crashed the airplane deep into the French Alps.

Germanwings is owned by Lufthansa and the grave news brought the CEO of the company to a complete shock. Carsten Sophr said that what the co-pilot did with Germanwings Flight 9525 left them all speechless.

Andreas Lubitz, the co-pilot of the aircraft is a 27 year old German national. According to a prosecutor, the co-pilot apparently was targeting to annihilate the aircraft.

Investigators are still investigating if Lubitz has planned his actions for some time. What was apparent was that he took advantage and saw a perfect moment of crashing the plane when the pilot left the cockpit. It was then that he activated the descent. Such activation can only be made deliberately.

The data gathered from the transponder showed that the autopilot on Flight 9525 was intentionally reprogrammed by someone accessing the cockpit. The new data programmed the plane’s altitude from the normal 38,000 feet to an unforgiving 100 feet. This data was made public by Flightradar24, expert tracker of aviation data.

Five investigators are currently searching the apartment of Germanwings Flight 9525 co-pilot Andreas Lubitz in order to shed light on what could have been the motive of the 27 year old in bringing the plane down. The police are desperately looking for clues in his apartment. French investigators enlisted the help of the FBI in digging up clues as to why Lubitz crashed the plane.

Last Thursday, details on the crash were released and it further supported the theory that someone indeed set the plane on a crash.

Furthermore, transponder data revealed that there were horrific sounds recorded from the vessels’ cockpit. It was evident from the sound recording that the captain was locked out from the cockpit area. Several banging from the door could be heard. In the final minutes of the plane’s descent, screaming could be heard on the sound recorder. Plane crash experts said that those on board had zero chances of making it out alive when the plane crashed. Death was instant for the passengers and crew.

A Simple Guide To Indian Cuisine

A Simple Guide To Indian Cuisine

Every country has its own form of cooking. However, while there are some countries whose cuisine is yet to be recognized, there are also countries such as France, Italy, Thailand, China, and India who are known for their exquisite cuisine. But today’s focus will be on Indian cuisine. If you would think about India, the first thing that would probably come into your minds is diversity. India is highly diverse country. With the second most populous country in the world, you would expect it to be rich not only culturally and traditionally, but also with its food. In fact, India’s food culture is so diverse that food from one region may be totally foreign to a person of another region.

But if there is one thing that runs through most Indian food, it would have to be the use of spices. If Belgium is known for its delectable chocolates, India is definitely famous for its effective use of spices in their food.

INDIAN FOOD CULTURE

You should know that Indians place a great value on their food. In fact, it is safe to say that Indians take their food very seriously. At a very young age, Indian girls will already be receiving lessons from their mothers about the family recipes that had been handed from one generation to another. Mealtimes are considered very important because it is the time when all of the family members can bond. Indian meals would comprise a number of dishes from rice and bread to meat and vegetables along with dessert. Most Indians prefer to cook their meals from scratch, making use of fine fresh ingredients.

Western cultures perceive Indian cuisine as largely vegetarian due to their Islamic ties. However, this may not be necessarily true. Religion plays a great role in determining what can or cannot be eaten. Islam prohibits the eating of pork while Hinduism forbids beef.

INFLUENCES

Indian cuisine has also been influenced by many different cultures as well. India has been invaded and occupied by other countries and no doubt these countries have left a mark. Indian cuisine has been predominantly influenced by Aryans, Persians or Arabs, British and Portuguese cuisine.

Chinese Tourists Given Easier Visa Rules From Israel

Chinese Tourists Given Easier Visa Rules From Israel

Earlier this month, Israel had announced their plans to lighten and reduce the encumbrance on Chinese nationals who are thinking about visiting Israel, the so-called Holy Land, with this being also a part of a much bigger plan that the country is hoping to launch so that Israel will be able to become more exposed to tourism and business opportunities, eliminating the problems that hinder this.

Now Chinese tourists who have already been granted visas by the United States or the European Union will be able to enjoy a newly approved fast track application. According to Interior Minister Silvan Shalom, the tourism for China is and will be significant for both countries in a lot of different aspects because it would most likely improve and contribute to the bilateral relations of both China and Israel while also contributing to the economy and tourism of the latter. Group visas will also be allowed to be changed in a span of 24 hours.

Interior Minister Shalom and Tourism Minister Yariv Levin were the ones who approved the fast-track application for the Chinese. This move follows another recent decision wherein a fast track visa application for tour groups was also approved. Not only that, the government of Israel will also be planning to pursue the issuance of 10-year tourist visas to eligible applicants.

The decision to fast-track Chinese applications come as no surprise since China has become a primary tourist target not only because of the fact that it hosts the largest population in the world, but also by the fact that China has become the largest source for global tourism in the world.

From 2012, China replaced the US as the country with the most outbound tourists and it still holds that title with ferocity this 2015. Last 2014, 116 million Chinese tourists spent about $120 billion on their vacations but only about 34, 100 came to Israel. Now, the easing of the visa restrictions is expected to bring in positive results. There will also be an increase in direct flights. Stay tune for more China Israeli Tourist Information.

What To Consider Before Moving Your Child From Crib To Bed

Funny little baby with beautiful standing in a round white crib

When your child has graduated from crib to bed, then that is another milestone in your child’s life. However, there are things you would have to consider before snatching your child away from his/her crib.

There is no age that determines the move from crib to bed. This would all have to come naturally. When the child expresses an interest, constantly climbing out of the crib, or when you have another baby coming.

Here are some tips that you can use when moving your child from crib to bed.

  • Don’t rush it. If there hasn’t been any case wherein your child attempted to escape, or if your child is perfectly content with the crib, ask yourself whether it would be right to move him/her. You don’t need to rush it. Your child is still in a safe place he is comfortable with. The best thing to do is to not break the status quo when your child is perfectly fine with his/her crib. Just wait for signs that your child wants to move into a bigger space.
  • Timing is everything. Don’t move your child at a time of stress. It would be better if you delay the move if your child is still coping from a recent incident such as divorce or illness. Even when another baby is on the way, you should still try to wait.
  • Choose the right bed. Kids beds are perfect for recently graduated toddlers. Make sure to choose a bed that is appropriate for the child’s age and size.
  • Let your child choose the bed. If it is possible, let your kid choose the bed. This is important because the more your child is involved in the process, the more he/she will cooperate.
  • Let your child pick the bedding. There are instances where you won’t be able to let the child choose the bed. When this happens, why not let him/her pick the bedding instead?
  • Let your child keep old comfort objects. Since your child will be entering at unfamiliar territory, a familiar comfort object may help him/her ease up.
