Jet blast

Jet blast is the phenomenon of rapid air movement produced by the jet engines of aircraft on or before takeoff. A large jet-engined aircraft can produce winds of up to 100 knots as far away as 60 metres behind it at 40% maximum rated power. Jet blast can be a hazard to people or other unsecured objects behind the aircraft, is capable of flattening buildings and destroying vehicles Despite the power and destructive nature of jet blast, there are few jet blast incidents. Due to the invisible nature of jet blast and the aerodynamic properties of light aircraft, light aircraft moving about airports are vulnerable. Pilots of light aircraft stay off to the side of the runway, rather than follow in the centre, to negate the effect of the blast. Propeller planes are capable of generating significant rearwards winds, known as prop wash. Maho Beach in Sint Maarten is famous for its unique proximity to the runway of Princess Juliana International Airport, allowing people to experience jet blast, a practice, discouraged by the local authorities.

A tourist was killed on 12 July 2017 when she was blown away by jet blast, which caused her head to smash into concrete. Some airports have installed jet blast deflectors in areas where roads or people may be in the path of the jet blast on take off. In one episode of Mythbusters, the effects of jet blasts are shown.

GameCenter CX

GameCenter CX known as Retro Game Master in other regions, is a Japanese gaming-variety show television program produced by Fuji Television and Gascoin Company. It stars Shinya Arino, a member of comedy duo Yoiko, who plays home console video games from previous decades and attempts to get the game's ending within a single day; the show has been on-air since November 4, 2003, with a new episode airing bi-weekly at Thursday midnight on Fuji TV One. 11 DVD sets have been released in Japan. In 2008 Fuji TV was looking for international distributors for subtitled DVDs; the show is presented as a gaming variety show. Shinya Arino challenges several games from previous eras, presented by his producers in order to get each ending, he is supported by the show's assistant directors and sometimes other staff, both via moral support and actual gameplay. He is featured in segments interspersed throughout the episodes where he goes to local arcade centers, as well as segments where he does a variety of things, such as interviews with game designers, showcasing classic console hardware or games, or a made-up game show where the staff participate.

Arino is presented as an employee of the GameCenter CX company, which exists inside the GameCenter CX universe. His jumpsuit attire adorns the GameCenter CX logo, which with the second season onward lost the original brackets around the "CX". Arino formally greets anyone of status by serving him/her a business card; the CX company promotes Arino depending on how well he does during the season. The phrase Arino says right before turning on the console, "Kachō on!", signifies his role as chief of the aforementioned company. To continue on with the corporate theme of the show, a stock certificate was included with the second DVD collection to have the buyers feel like they owned stock in the company. In the last episode of season 7, Bandai Namco Entertainment president Ishikawa made Arino an honorary employee and presented him with a company card; the assistant directors help provide creative input, construct settings, work as camera crew at times when on location. Their on-screen presence is precipitated by Arino struggling with a spot in a game.

They will offer help of a varying degree, enough to dislodge Arino from his despair, but not so much as to raise questions about whether he beat the game on his own. These members of staff start as interns, they are promoted to various paid positions surrounding the show's production. Many have moved on to other Japanese TV shows.

In their match, O'Kane compiled a century break in eliminating Mellish 10–4. Beginning the 1992/1993 season ranked 120th, Mellish reached the last 64 at the 1992 UK Championship, where he lost 7–9 to Alan McManus, the same stage at the International Open, where Steve James beat him 5–3. At the World Championship, entering at the seventh qualifying round, he overcame Simon Morris 5–2, Karl Burrows 10–4, Ian Graham 10–7, Wayne Jones 10–7 and Ken Doherty 10–4 to qualify for the final stages at the Crucible Theatre for the first time in his career.

Wellfield Middle School

Wellfield Middle School is located in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, serving the areas of Wellfield and Monkseaton. In 2015 it had about 300 pupils on its roll from the ages of 9 up to 13. Prior to 1972 there was a primary school in Wellfield. With Northumberland's creation of a three-tier education system, the school was divided into a First School and a Middle school. In 1993, South Wellfield Middle School and other schools were threatened with closure by North Tyneside Council with a view to reduce surplus places. After a campaign by staff and pupils to keep the school open, the school applied in 1994 to become one of the few grant-maintained schools in North East England. Following this success, the school changed its name in September 1994 to Wellfield Middle School; when grant-maintained status was abolished, it became known as Wellfield Middle School. Pupils at Wellfield complete their KS2 SATs tests in Year 6. Wellfield, along with all other schools in England, have their results published on the DfES website.
