Es gibt Songstrukturen mit Strophen und Refrains. Und ich glaube, dass unsere Musik deshalb so gut ankommt. Man kauft sich heute eher einzelne Songs. Warum habt ihr trotzdem ein Album gemacht? Und ich empfehle das jedem jungen Musiker: Allein dadurch sammelten wir Ich konzentriere mich auf morgen — das muss reichen.
Zumindest am Anfang. Da gibt es einfach keine klare Antwort. Jetzt diskutieren halt alle, weil es ein Hit ist. Es gibt viele andere Nummern von uns, wo gar nichts gesampelt wurde — zum Beispiel auf unserem neuen Album.
Was wird da drauf sein? Und es erscheint vermutlich Ende des Sommers oder zu Herbstbeginn. Mehr wollen wir noch nicht verraten. Ihr legt am Deck eines Containerschiffs auf, und am Ufer gehen paar tausend Menschen ab.
Wer von euch ist der bessere Schwimmer? Das Problem: Bei vielen bleibt es bei dem einen Mal. Das erste One-Hit-Wonder der Geschichte? Der schnelle Weg zum Nr. Nach kolportierten zehn Minuten war der Smiley geboren: gelb, rund und grinsend.
Ball wurde durch den Smiley weltbekannt, aber nicht reich. Sie sind eine Art One-Hit-Wonders. Auge in Auge. Er schwamm wieder weg.
Sie sind primitiv und brechen Attacken niemals ab. Diese Riesenexemplare vor der mexikanischen Pazifikinsel Socorro akzeptierten mich schon nach wenigen Tagen. Ihre Haut ist rau wie Schleifpapier. Kaimane sind bis zu zwei Meter lang. In Brasilien pirschte ich mich schwimmend an dieses Reptil heran.
Bewusst von vorn. Doch dieser extrem neugierige und verspielte Kerl war eine Ausnahme. Noch keinem gelang es, die Geburt von Stachelrochen in Freiheit zu fotografieren. Leider verloren wir es aus den Augen. Was blieb, sind Fotos des Tieres auf seiner ewig langen Suche nach einem Laichplatz. Dieses Foto entstand in Brasiliens Sumpfgebiet Pantanal. Anakondas lauern ihren Opfern am Ufer auf und fressen sogar Krokodile.
Dieses Exemplar hatte zuvor gespeist und beachtete uns kaum. Papua-Neuguinea, Und es beruhigt sie, wenn du Ruhe ausstrahlst. Riesenkalmare packen Taucher mit den Greifarmen und ziehen sie in die Tiefe. Auf jeden Fall ist sie die attraktivste. Da hielt sie zum ersten Mal eine Blankwaffe in der Hand — und wollte Fechterin werden. Wie bist du denn dazu gekommen?
Ich war ein Kind voller Energie, die irgendwie rausmusste. Also war ich sehr viel tanzen. Was ist das Tolle am Fechten? Die Waffe ist sehr agil, die Gefechte sind wahnsinnig schnell, viel dynamischer als bei Degen und Florett. Dein Freund ist ja ebenfalls Fechter. Geht das ohne Reibereien ab? Welche Musik bringt dich vor einem Gefecht in die richtige Stimmung? Marilyn Manson?
Happy mit dem Ruf als Fecht-Pin-up? Meine Eltern hatten nichts dagegen, aber meine Trainer haben nicht verstanden, warum wir Olga und ihre beiden Teamkollegen; Anm. Nicht wirklich. Alle meine Verwandten leben dort, und ich wohne mit meinen Eltern und meinem Hund gemeinsam in einem Haus.
Du hast mit Fechten die ganze Welt kennengelernt. Reizt dich kein anderer Ort? Source: I worked for a supplier of driver assistance systems for Honda. Mitchk Mitchk 61 1 1 bronze badge. This is a good answer, it is the foundation of our current passive solution.
Depending on the scenario the passenger may not be aware of a driver issue until after the impending crash. My belief is that the Honda will do it's best to prevent accidents and slow the vehicle to 25MPH at which time it will give up and allow the crash to occur.
Back Orifice but for cars. Remote control of vehicles has already happened - OnStar, or Tesla cars I can even stop mine from my cellphone , or several Euro brands can do this. Encryption and message verification is a major part of system design. CarlWitthoft I know. And it sounds pretty scary. Software has bugs , some software recently led to two major airlines crashing. In addition to other answers. That isn't what would happen in a manual transmission -- tho' I strongly doubt it's possible to force the gearbox into reverse at highway speeds, as there are lockout mechanisms.
I have a manual transmission '97 Jeep Wrangler , and it will NOT enter any gear unless the speeds are already matched. Usually, this is done by disengaging the clutch on the far side from the passenger and pushing it towards the desired gear. As it gets close, it makes friction contact first, which actually does the speed-matching, and then a pointed spline does the final alignment.
There's no way that that mechanism could work with the engine still connected, unless it just happened to match already. It's also near-impossible to pull it out of gear if there's still a load on it. I overhauled it last year, so I could see that mechanism directly. Reverse is extra special in that A there's no friction contact, so you're literally just jamming gears together good luck with that at speed , and B the control mechanism is designed intentionally to jam if you try to go there from the wrong gear, thus preventing the most common way to find reverse at highway speeds.
Selecting another gear un-jams it. Sorry but I don't believe your last paragraph, not for a second. There is absolutely no possible physical way for you to shift into reverse at 30mph and release the clutch without causing catastrophic damage to the gearbox and, most likely, the engine as well.
The car's behaviour would also be nothing like you describe. The drive wheels would immediately lock up as the driveshaft s get caught in the mess of broken gears inside the gearbox.
It is also almost guaranteed that you'd tear a giant gash in the carter and leave torn pieces of gears and gearbox oil all over the road.
Passenger familiarity with vehicle Passenger crash preparedness Slow the vehicle while maintaining safe travel Survive the accident Anticipate secondary impacts Point 1: Passenger familiarity with vehicle The time to get familiar with the vehicle is before the accident: Does the vehicle have active anti crash devices? If so how does it work? Can it be enabled or disabled? Does the vehicle have an automatic or manual transmission? How will the vehicle react if the engine stops running while transmission is in gear?
Scenarios where shifting the transmission is good or bad. Can the passenger activate the brake, while remaining seated and seat belted? I am aware of at least one case where it was put to the test. Everybody in this organization knows who the late Lawrence Muzzy Marcelino was. In the early s he was flying home from Baltimore to California, and when the plane got ready to land in San Francisco, there was a problem. The landing gear wouldn't come down. The plane landed on foam, and the lights went out.
An emergency evacuation occurred. It was night, and there was near panic. It was Muzzy who got to the exit and helped the sighted passengers find it. So far as I have been able to determine, there is not a case on record in which a blind person has been involved in the blocking of an exit or the slowing of traffic in an airline emergency, and as I have just told you, I know of at least one instance the one involving Muzzy in which blindness was a positive asset.
Yet, the airlines keep prattling to us about safety while, at the same time, knowingly doing things which diminish safety. I refer to the serving of liquor to passengers in exit rows and the practice of permitting excess carry-on luggage to be stowed with passengers at their seats.
For that matter, serving liquor at all on a plane in flight probably reduces the safety margins, and so does smoking. I am not saying that these things should be eliminated but only that the treatment of the blind should be seen in perspective. When I was participating in the regulatory negotiation process last summer to persuade the Department of Transportation to come up with rules to prevent discrimination against the blind in air travel, I personally heard officials of the Flight Standards Administration of the Federal Aviation Administration repeatedly say that they felt there was no safety question involved in blind persons' sitting in exit rows on planes.
They said that if they had felt there was a safety question, they would long since have made appropriate regulations. The Flight Standards Administration is that branch of FAA which is responsible for determining questions of safety in air travel. Only when FAA attorneys began to apply pressure did the nature of the comments by Flight Standards officials change.
Rather than oppose the airlines, the FAA apparently finds it easier to duck behind the safety issue. The problem with the arguments being advanced by the FAA and the airlines is that those arguments are based on the false premise that sighted persons excluding the elderly, the frail, the pregnant, and children are uniformly capable and alert. The blind person with whatever limitations and strengths he or she may possess is compared with the ideal sighted person a person who in most cases does not exist.
Last fall when Senator Dole promised to help deal with the airline problem, he said that it would not occur to anybody to suggest that he should not be allowed to sit in an exit row.
Yet because of his physical handicap , he would not, he said, be able to open the exit. Several years ago when we were taking both sighted and blind people to the Baltimore airport to make a test evacuation of a World Airways plane, we had to eliminate from consideration many of the sighted that we might have chosen.
One had back problems; another had foot problems; and still another had difficulties with heart and blood pressure. In the real world of everyday commercial air travel none of these people would have been excluded from the exit row.
Why, then, should the blind be held to a different standard from the sighted? The truth is that if you consider the scarcity of accidents in proportion to the number of miles which are flown and the relatively small number of blind people who are likely to be on a given flight at a given time, the potential risk would almost be zero even if all of the claims by the airlines about the unsafeness of the blind were true.
The serving of liquor to passengers, the permitting of smoking, the carry-on luggage, the undetected emotional and physical problems of the average passenger, and a hundred other things are much more real as problems than the minimal risk potentially posed by the blind plus the fact, as I have already said, that in certain circumstances the blind would have an advantage in helping themselves and others. Nevertheless, the airlines persist in their phony game of It is all a matter of safety, and the FAA bows to the pressure and seeks to take the easy way out.
In truth and in fact we are not dealing with a safety issue at all but a matter of civil rights, and we simply will not be bullied and intimidated into submission. We will speak to the public and the Congress until we get results. And make no mistake about it we will be heard, and we will be heeded. Two incidents this spring graphically illustrate the unreasonableness of the treatment which we are receiving from the airlines.
On a Midway Airlines flight from Baltimore to Des Moines Peggy Pinder the Second Vice President of the National Federation of the Blind and the President of the National Federation of the Blind of Iowa was arrested for refusing to move to a seat near an emergency exit; and only a few days later Jim Gashel our Director of Governmental Affairs was arrested and removed from a United Airlines flight for almost the exact opposite reason.
He was sitting in his assigned seat one he had not requested in an exit row and refused to move. In Peggy's case the facts are thoroughly documented and particularly vicious and ugly, not to mention ironic. She was going home to Iowa from Washington after a day of testifying before the Republican National Committee on ways of increasing participation of blind persons in the mainstream of American life and of eliminating discrimination against the blind.
When she arrived at the airport, she was ordered to pre-board the plane. She declined but was told that she would either pre-board or not be permitted to travel. She submitted and did as she was ordered. The plane had open seating, so she went to the back and took a seat in the smoking section. She said she did not need a special briefing, but when she was publicly and abusively ordered to take one, she did it. Then, when she refused to change her seat which was not in an exit row , she was arrested and bodily carried from the plane in a particularly offensive manner.
In her own words:. The officer lifted me from my seat and physically moved me into the aisle. At this point I stood up and waited for the officer's next action. The officer positioned himself behind me and lifted me from the floor.
