There is widespread concern that China could have a hard landing because its investment share of GDP has risen to levels as high as 48 percent.
While the current economy is not overheating and thus not really in need of a soft landing, a danger of runaway investment or a real estate bubble does exist.
OLS is a pre-mission planning analysis tool that provides information about potential landing sites.
The 3-D radar will display the height of obstacles or terrain in the path of the aircraft, which makes pilots more aware of landing situations.
Both of these dangers will increase the amount of the hyper-flexion forces applied to the vaulter's neck during every properly executed landing. It therefore follows that even if the athlete wore a helmet during a technically correct vault and landing, he would still be vulnerable to a major catastrophic injury Since virtually every vault ends in the landing mat, the risk of wearing a helmet places the vaulter at an increased level of danger during properly executed vaults.
Nearly every catastrophic injury over the last 20 years could have been avoided by (1) using common-sense where circumstances dictate, (2) strict compliance to the rules on hazard-free soft-landing zones around the landing mat, (3) proper use and maintenance of legal-sized landing mats and vaulting poles, and (4) seeing that the participants (athlete and coach) acquire an accredited pole-vault event education.
But, there's more to a safe landing
than a "soft" surface that slows you down gradually, says physicist Arthur Damask.
The bases of the crossbar standards should be padded with thick foam to reduce the severity of injuries caused by landing
Based on the latest "New Urbanism" design principals, The Landings
is planned to combine the openness of suburban living with the feel of a small town and all the conveniences of an urban environment.
