The Truth About Bird Strikes: What airport operators can do to better prevent the hazard

Posted by The Brain on Jun 15, 2018 1:32:06 AM

 

When it comes to air travel, the saying, “birds of a feather flock together,” takes on a troubling connotation. In 2016 alone, the U.K. recorded more than 1,800 confirmed bird strikes, or eight in every 10,000 flights. Similarly, statistics in the U.S. point to an estimated 13,000-plus bird strikes in this country every year. Passenger lives aren’t usually at stake in these incidents –there’ve only been 25 fatalities due to wild bird strikes between the years 1990 to 2013, according to the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). But the risks of bird strikes aren’t exactly insignificant either.

Get to Know Noggin OCA: How Do You Solve a Problem Like Volunteer Reliability?

Posted by The Brain on Jun 13, 2018 6:12:08 AM

 

If you take a bird’s eye view, the state of volunteerism seems pretty healthy. The volunteer rate in the U.S., for instance, stands at around 63 million people, roughly a quarter of the total population. And that’s only a few basis points down from the 29 percent that government statisticians recorded when they first started tracking rates of volunteerism back in the early 2000s. The importance of those volunteers to the health of the economy (not to mention the mission of their nonprofit organizations) can’t be overstated either. Some estimates show that volunteers contribute upwards of $150 billion in services.
