Carmencitta Magazine - Fliz Bike

Bicycles have been the same from years ago until today. Of course, there are some aspects that have changed such as the materials used, the bike’s design, and the technology used to make it faster. Other than that, bikes remain bikes; a two wheeled vehicles with two pedals that require you to use your legs in order to be transported from a location to another.

This is why, they tried to change a little bit, but in fact, they changed a lot! Their latest invention that had to do with “bicycles” made the go wild and remove the part that has to do with pedals, and this is where “The Fliz Bike” came from.

Moreover, we cannot know if the changes were done for the better, but we surely can know that they were made for a more entertaining cycling experience.

Carmencitta Magazine - Fliz Bike 2In fact, The Fliz, is a German word that means the whiz or dash, has totally deleted the pedals part or the bicycle, and connected the two wheels by a somewhat bridge that has a thing similar to a life jacket hanging from it where you put your body and buckle up.

In addition, The Fliz works depending on the user’s legs. He or she has to walk, and slowly start running, which makes the wheels spin faster, and in turn, take the person to the desired location.

Furthermore, The Fliz has so many benefits such as, making your body move, providing easy exercise with no probability for him or her to feel hot because, due to its use outside, and its constant movement, the air keeps on cooling his or her body.

Finally, this invention has been subject to criticism, but the thing that should be noted is that it did not come to replace the original bicycle.

What is The Secret Behind Opening the Airplane Window Curtains During Takeoffs and Landings?

Carmencitta Magazine - What is The Secret Behind Opening the Airplane Window Curtains During Takeoffs and Landings

The British newspaper “The Independent” has reported that the fact of opening the Airplane window curtains in the process of aircraft takeoffs and landings may seem simple and nonsense to some of the passengers, despite their constant traveling. Some may believe that this process is done in order to prepare the passengers for landing or taking-off, while others believe that its meant to let passengers enjoy the last moments of the arrival or departure of the flight.

Carmencitta-Magazine-What-is-The-Secret-Behind-Opening-the-Airplane-Window-Curtains-During-Takeoffs-and-Landings-1.

However, the security experts at airports have made it clear that the process falls in security and public safety of flights framework.
A public safety officer has pointed out that keeping the airplane window curtains open allows emergency personnel to see the outside of the plane cabin to assess the security situation for the trip, saying that passengers may reach our crew for a security glitch that could happen while taking-off or landing. The officer added that the crew has only ninety seconds to evacuate the aircraft in case sudden emergencies happened. Therefore, the crew asks passengers to open the windows so it may watch the atmosphere out of the plane in case of a disruption in the communication with the security team. Therefore, security forces shall give certain signals to the crew in order to determine the evacuation of the aircraft by selecting the most safety doors to save the passengers trying to avoid any potential danger.

According to an expert in the aircraft industry, Mr. David Robinson, visual ability of the person whose eyes got adapted to dim light once facing an accident, are way better than those of a person who got exposed to sudden catastrophic accident when being sitting in a dark place. A person, who is in the light, even if the light is dimmed, can have a lot of conscious, especially as he only has ninety seconds to get out of the plane and save his life.

We may also mention that the windows of the aircraft in 1953 where in a square shape, and then turned into oval shapes after some experts in aviation accidents have discovered that the windows were the direct cause of the fall of one of the planes. As a matter of fact, the square shaped windows contain four corners, and thus four possible weaknesses, that can fade and disintegrate when exposed to pressure which increases the risk of catastrophic plane accidents.
