The first scheduled passenger airline service took off on Jan 1, 1914. Thomas Benoist designed the "flying boat", the pilot was Tony Jannus, and Abram C. Pheil was the first paying passenger.
The 21-mile (34-kilometre) flight took 23 minutes, flying from St. Petersburg to Tampa, Fla. The plane flew no higher than 50 feet (15.2 m) over the water. Halfway, the engine misfired, and Jannus touched down in the bay, made adjustments and took off again. When the plane landed, they were swarmed by a cheering crowd of about 3,500.
Tony Jannus was an experienced test pilot for military planes and flew long-distance airplanes and airboats. By 1913, he became one of the principal stockholders in the Benoist Aircraft Company.
A Model 14 Benoist airboat weighed 1,250 lbs. (567 kilograms). It was 26 feet (8 meters) long and had a wingspan of 44 feet (13 m). The top speed of the airplane was 64 mph (103 km/h). The plane was built for one pilot and one passenger side-by-side on one wooden seat.
The World Economic Forum released a report that gave an estimate of 85 million jobs will be displaced by the year 2025, between humans and machines. However, this is not to scare us.
Thanks to the advances in technology many business processes are able to be conducted with the less marginal error or human error. Varying industries now use chatbots that have NLP (Natural Language Processing) while others use RPA (Robotic Process Automation).
As technologies advance, products and services are only being driven sky-high. The demand for new jobs in the industries under care economy and green economy presents great opportunities to fall under the umbrellas of:
Accepting reality is hard, but it's important to acknowledge and accept who we are and where we are in life.
While we try to get in shape, be better organized or more productive, we get overwhelmed with the sheer number of things that must be done, as there is so much to be done at all times. We end up competing with others and with our younger self, and fail to realize that we just have to be a better person than we were yesterday.
If we have to master the domains of money, health, career, and relationships, we have to start from where we are.
Although we think that we know how we feel, the sensations of anger, anxiety, hunger, or illness are more alike than we realize.
We may sometimes misinterpret those signals with grave consequences. But there are some practical ways to gain control of our feelings.
Charles Darwin popularized the theory of emotional fingerprints - that each emotion creates a specific combination of facial expression, body language, and other physiological cues such as a heart rate.
But recently detailed analyses suggest there is no such thing. Each emotion is represented by a whole range of reactions. The way we interpret our body's signals, such as excited or anxious, depends entirely on the context of the situation and can be easily framed by our expectations.
We learn interpretations from others. Your familiar emotion concepts come from your particular social context - your parents, friends, TV, and books, and your own past life experiences.
Other cultures will connect different kinds of meaning from the same sensory input. Utka Eskimos appear to have no clearly defined concept of anger, and Tahitians seem not to share our concept of sadness.
States like hunger, fatigue, or illness produce the same signals as emotions like anger, anxiety, or sadness. This shows the importance of looking after your body as a way to stabilise your mood.
You can take steps now to influence your future emotional experiences.
Knowing your real emotion can provide a deeper understanding of the situation you are in, such as reframing your unhappiness, so it no longer feels so all-consuming. You may also reconsider the source of your discomfort. Eventually, you may be able to categorise a situation with precision.
Impatience is defined as a form of hurry: you are unable to sit tight and wait your turn.
Impatience is generally seen as a negative force, but people who are considered driven, gritty, or otherwise motivated to achieve their goals often share an impatient streak.
