More > short final approach and crashed short of runway 9 at the Tallahassee Regional Airport, Florida. The flight was operating as a scheduled cargo flight from Memphis, to Tallahassee. The captain, first officer, and flight engineer were seriously injured, and the airplane was destroyed by impact and resulting fire. Night visual meteorological conditions prevailed for the flight, which operated on an instrument flight rules flight plan. The National Transportation Safety Board determines that the probable cause of the accident was the crew’s failure to establish and maintain a proper glidepath during the night visual approach to landing. Contributing to the accident was a combination of the captain’s and first officer’s fatigue, the crew’s failure to monitor the approach, and the first officer’s color vision deficiency.< Less

CU @ THE FOB: How The Forward Operating Base Is Changing The Life Of Combat Soldiers By Leonard Wong, Stephen Gerras, Strategic Studies Institute
Paperback: $14.95
Ships in 3-5 business days
As this monograph points out, the situation in post-war Iraq is producing combat veterans accustomed to a perspective of combat that differs greatly from past wars. The Forward Operating Base (FOB)... More > has become the mainstay of the U.S. presence in Iraq. Dr. Leonard Wong and Colonel Stephen Gerras explore the facets of ighting from the FOB and show that it gives soldiers the unprecedented advantage of gaining a respite from constant danger, minimizes the wearing effects of hunger and fatigue, and reduces the isolation of combat. As a result, many of the factors of psychological stress typically present in combat are greatly reduced. They also point out, however, that technology on the FOB allows soldiers to communicate frequently with home, shifting the family from an abstract to concrete concept in the minds of deployed soldiers. As a result, the competition between the family and the Army for soldier time, commitment, loyalty, and energy is renewed.< Less

More > condition; route layout; operating conditions; fatigue; and stress. Operators perceived fatigue and stress to be the greatest sources of safety risk, with split shifts, schedule pressures, passenger distractions, and negligence of other roadway users being the primary contributors to these conditions. Operators were also surveyed on the frequency and nature of “close calls,” with two-thirds of the operators indicating that such incidents occurred at least weekly and most often involved being cut off by other roadway users. Operators endorsed high visibility enforcement initiatives to improve safety, focusing primarily on negligent behavior. Other operator recommended changes addressed scheduling practices and the need for more public information and outreach on safety risks.< Less

I was maltreated by being detained in psychiatric institutions, forced to take psychotropic drugs or be injected. For almost three years, I was abused and maltreated by physicians, which made my true condition worse to the point of complete disability. After being diagnosed correctly, I sued the physicians, lost that battle, but have finally won by writing this horror story to warn others about the hazards of unmonitored drug therapy that can cause permanent physical damage. I volunteer with National Me/Fm Action Network to try to promote change with the diagnosis and treatment of ME/FM/MCI.< Less

Both pilots had lost spatial orientation due to new instruments they were not familiar with, lack of proper training, insufficient knowledge of English and fatigue from lack of adequate rest. Alcohol in the Captain's blood may also have contributed to the accident.< Less
