MH370: New search area

first_imgIn a dramatic development in the search for MH370 the search area is to be moved back to a zone approximately 1700km west of Perth, Western Australia, previously dismissed in late March.MH370, with 239 passengers and crew vanished on a flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March has learnt from US sources that the Australian Joint Agency Coordination Centre will announce Thursday June 26th that a six-week analysis of all information related to the Boeing 777’s flight path has resulted in a 500km shift in the search area to the south-west.The Australian Transport Safety Bureau, which is leading the international search, confirmed the area of highest probability would be “further south.”The search area is still located on what is termed the seventh arc based on the UK based Inmarsat’s satellite interrogation of the Boeing 777 – just much further south.While the ATSB would not be drawn on precise detail the US sources told that the two ocean floor mapping vessels the Fugro Equator and the Chinese PLA-Navy’s Zhu Kezhen are in the area.These ships will map the sea bed, which is up to 6000m deep, ahead of a commercial contractor starting a side scan sonar search with a towed Orion vehicle, more capable than the Bluefin 21 used earlier.The search area is 60,000 sq kms and it could still take up to 12 months to cover the entire area.When the search first started in the southern Indian Ocean on March 18 the initial search area was 2500km south-west of Perth.On March 28 on an updated assessment from the ATSB it was moved 1900km due west of Perth.However, it was only an aerial search.When Ocean Shield was deployed early in April fresh intelligence from Malaysia led the search to be moved 800km north-east – essentially due west of Exmouth.The detection of what was thought to be black box pings within days kept the search in that region for over a month despite some misgivings at the ATSB.After the failure to find MH370 in that area the ATSB convened a comprehensive review of all the data including the critical Inmarsat satellite communications with the Boeing understands from the US source that at least three independent groups were formed to analyse all the information and all have come to the same conclusion on the most likely crash site of MH370.last_img read more

Aside from finding the code for the padlock on the outside, you’ll need to consider a few things. The geocache has electronic features on it and can’t function without some power. According to the cache page you are required to bring three AA batteries. Once the padlock is unlocked and the door to the cache opens, you’re greeted with a temperamental goat who remains happy so long as you don’t shock it. Some goats faint when they feel a sense of panic—this one will yell at you if you can’t keep a steady hand. Don’t Shock the Goat (GC6JZ0Q) requires you to have ultra-focus while navigating a metal “wand” around the outline of a goat. If the wand touches the metal frame, all your efforts are lost and you have to start at the beginning. With almost 300 Favorite points, this gadget cache is one of the most Favorited caches in Massachusetts.center_img To test your Dr. Doolittle skills, insert the AA batteries and wait for the three lights on the cache to blink. Then touch the wand to the top of the green bolt to reset the cache and to enable the green light on the cache. If you bump the wire with the wand after enabling it, it will make a loud buzzing sound and the light will turn red until you reset the cache again. Repeat this until you are able to make it around the wire and touch the opposite bolt.  Difficulty: 3.5 Terrain: 2 Caches that take added effort are always a thrill for the cachers who find them. According to cache owner hyliston this cache took 50 hours to create, but has sparked timeless memories for geocachers that have come to meet the goat. What was the last geocache that ‘shocked’ you?

It was not complete. “But I’m pleased some players who have not been playing so many minutes played, some debuts, and the young lads who came on improved the team which was nice. It’s nice to get that first home win.”I thought Gilmour ran the game from midfield, and Guehi was solid. They’ve been outstanding this year.”And the young subs showed how comfortable they are on the ball. Now the hard work starts to get in the team regularly.”It says a lot about the academy, and nights like this give the opportunity to mix the team up and give them a chance, it gives good recognition to the academy.” last_img read more
