Politics aside, if you care about people in general, mental health, future generations or the greater good of society, consider this: the impact of childhood trauma is profound; it not only impacts those suffering in the ‘present’ but adults who have a history or childhood trauma, are at much greater risk for developing serious emotional, mental & physical health problems (which impacts the rest of society!). One solution: intervene now. If you don’t care now, one day you’ll have to.
It’s a BIRD, it’s an AIRPLANE, NO it’s An “Air Taxi” VTOL CONCEPT of the future!!!! I can’t wait to get around, in one of these 😀😱. Read more about it bellow:
Bell and Safran Collaborate on Air-Taxi Concept Futuristic VTOL will be powered by hybrid electric power plant. By Pia Bergqvist (flying Magazine) Bell has designed a cabin mockup for its VTOL project, which will be powered by a hybrid electric power source developed by Safran (per Bell Helicopter). At the Future of Transportation World Conference, which takes place this week in Köln-Messe, Germany, Bell Helicopter and Safran announced they are collaborating on a VTOL aircraft for the air-taxi market.
The futuristic-looking VTOL concept will be designed, developed and produced by Bell, while the hybrid electric power system will be developed by Safran. “Thanks to the long and sustained technology-development strategy conducted within the Safran group, we can now offer Bell our hybrid electric power solutions for their next generation products that result in improved performance giving more value to our customers,” said Safran’s senior executive vice president of R&T and innovation, Stéphane Cueille.
What that power plant might look like remains to be seen. While a conceptual cabin mock up has already been designed by Bell, it does not show whether the VTOL will be elevated by a traditional helicopter rotor or some other source of lift. The mockup of the VTOL was first shown at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January. Bell’s director of innovation, Scott Drennan, sees the partnership with Safran as a major step in the right direction for the project. “Our work with Safran is a historical milestone for future transport solutions,” he said. #airtaxi#futuretransportation#hybride#hybridairvehicles#aviation#instaaviation#bell#safran#milestone#thefuture
Kawhi Leonard will be an unrestricted free-agent in 2019... Should the Lakers really break the young core trading guys like Kuz/BI for Kawhi now when his uncertain health is a concern? Why not just wait another year and pursue Kawhi in 2019 free agency? I mean.. 2018 free agency still has its fair share of superstars 🤷🏽♂️🏀
