Tagalog Translation of SHAWTY: magandang babae; or it is a slang term for GIRLFRIEND- kasintahan
The word "antonym" when translated in Tagalog or Filipino (national language of the Philippines) would simply mean "kabaligtaran", "kasalungat".
When you're traveling in the air, you will definitely hear the announcement reminding you that you can only use your electronic devices in "Airplane Mode." What is Airplane Mo…de, and how do you turn it on and off on your MacBook or iOS device? Here's how. (MORE)
When it comes to transportation, the invention of flight may have been the most life changing technological innovation. It has definitely made it possible to bring everyone a …little closer. The airplane fuselage has made this all possible. Many travelers complain of the cramped conditions and uncomfortable seats and forget that they are 10,000 feet above the ground flying. Take a look at the following list of questions and answers to learn more about the airplane fuselage.This is the main structural portion of a plane or any aircraft for that matter. This is the portion where the wings and tail assembly would be attached. It is also the section of certain aircraft where the engine would be attached. The fuselage will carry the cargo, as well as the passengers, crew, and pilot. It also is the area where the instruments will be attached.Basically anything mechanical that flies has a fuselage. Orville Wright?s and Wilbur Wright?s single engine airplane had a fuselage. All versions of a helicopter have a fuselage. Commercial jets and military fighter planes have a fuselage. The supersonic and a glider both have one. Although now retried, the shuttles all had a fuselage.This is one of three type of fuselage construction. The truss or framework type is made with tubes of a light gauge of steel. They are put together in a triangle frame shape that is a very strong shape. It is designed so that each tube takes on a portion of the weight. This design was found on a lot of the earlier aircraft. They were strong and reliable. This design is not fuel-efficient or that aerodynamic.This design uses a light frame to give the fuselage its shape, but does not have trusses. Monocoque is a French term that literally means single shell. In this design, they cover the frame with a skin or a shell. It is this skin that carries the weight of the fuselage. There are no formers or bulkheads to support the skin. This design is easy to make, but has issues in that it requires quite a bit of maintenance in order to keep the structure properly reinforced.This design came about to improve upon the Monocoque design. The Monocoque design did not hold up well for larger planes as the load was too much. Stringers called longerons were added to the fuselage. Basically, these are placed lengthwise across the fuselage and join the frame together. The skin made of an alloy is then attached to both using rivets. Dividing walls or barriers are placed in the fuselage, which is stronger than just stringers or frames because these carry a larger amount of the weight. This design is still used on commercial airlines and military fighters.The fuselage has come a long way since the early days. There have also been many designs. Each attempt is to make the plane stronger, safer, and faster. The fuselage materials have also been changed over the years as planes have gotten larger and more powerful.The all-metal airplane was created in 1915. It was called a sheet metal donkey. It was invented by Hugo Junkers. (MORE)
Found in the settings, the iPhone airplane mode is an on/off switch that allows you to turn off all signals going to and from your phone. This allows you keep your phone power…ed on during an air flight without interfering with the plane?s systems. However, the mode can be used in more situations. Here are the key reasons as to use airplane mode.The first and most obvious reason for using airplane mode is for flying. When on an airplane, you are forbidden from using devices that send or receive signals in case it causes problems for the in-flight computer systems. The airplane mode on an iPhone cuts off any signals that may occur so you can use you phone without fear of breaking these rules. You can only use this function, however, when the plane reaches 10,000 feet. Do not use this during landing and take off. In those circumstances, you must switch your phone off.If you have small children, letting them use your iPhone can give you a break and them a source of entertainment. With a plethora of games available to them, you can leave them to play without worrying. However, when not in airplane mode, your children may begin to press buttons that could result in messages or phone calls taking place. Airplane mode prevents them from doing sending or receiving any signals.Perhaps you have had a long hard day at work and would like to switch off for the evening. With traditional mobile phones, you could turn the phone off and not worry about incoming calls or text messages. However, an iPhone is far more than a telephone. Perhaps you want to listen to music or watch a film. In airplane mode, you can use your phone for other apps without having to worry about receiving unwanted calls or text messages.Constant signals going to and from your iPhone drains the battery. This is especially true if you are working off 3G connection. Aside from closing all the apps and dimming the screen, saving battery can be difficult. By switching your iPhone to airplane mode, you can conserve battery life. As signals are not being sent out or received, the battery does not need to work so hard. This is because the system is not constantly searching for new incoming data.Traveling abroad can take its toll on your iPhone bill. Having your phone constantly searching for new data will eat away at your data usage, costing you a large sum of money. By switching your iPhone to airplane mode, you can prevent this constant searching. This will save you money and you can switch signals back on every now and then to check any new messages. Alternatively, you can wait for WiFi and work from that to save money.Having an iPhone cane make your life a whole lot easier. It can assist with tasks in every area due to the number of available apps. However, many people overlook the benefits of the airplane mode. Not only can it save you money, it can preserve battery life, make sure you are keeping in line with regulations, and give you a needed break. You simply find the mode in the settings and slide it to 'on'.If you are having problems with your battery life, you do not always need to switch to airplane mode. You can save battery by simply turning off the 3G. You will find this in "Network" in the settings. (MORE)

Most people know exactly what you are experiencing.Bringing your baby on an airplane is not easy, but it is possible. Use these tips for smooth, stress-free travel. Your little one is sure to be a professional jet-setter in no time.Many parents traveling with babies on airplanes find making eye contact with the passengers around them and introducing them to the baby helps break the ice. Passengers who know your baby's name and have talked to you are less likely to get upset if your baby is less than perfectly quiet on the flight. (MORE)
In RC Vehicles
RC aircraft are hobby planes that fliers operate from the ground using a radio remote control. These planes have three movable parts, controlled by servos that move the plane …up and down, to the left and to the right as well allow it to barrel roll. Understanding these control surfaces is essential to flying a RC plane.As the pilot moves the sticks on the RC transmitter, small servo motors move the control surfaces. In addition, the RC transmitter controls the airspeed of the plane. Signals from the RC transmitter signal the receiver to cause movement of the servos.Ailerons are hinged control surfaces located at the tailing edge of the wing of the plane. They move up and down to control the direction of rolling turns. There are two ailerons on the plane. They move in opposite directions to cause the wings to remain parallel with the earth or to move one side of the plane up or down.Elevators move the plane up and down in elevation. The elevators are in the tail section of the RC airplane. Elevators adjust the location of the nose of the aircraft. If the nose points in an upward direction the plane moves higher in elevation. If it points down, the plane is moving down. Some planes do not have elevators but use adjustments to the power to the propellers to determine elevation of the plane.The airplane rudder is in the tail of the plane. Unlike elevators which lie in a horizontal position, the rudder is vertical. Moving the rudder turns the direction the plane flies. Inexpensive RC planes for indoor use sometimes have a fixed rudder that causes the plane to continually fly in a circle; however, most other RC planes leave this control to the operator.RC airplanes offer a fun hobby. Begin enjoying flying planes with a very small investment. If you find you like the sport, look for planes that allow you more control. Most hobbyists begin with a single wing aircraft with wings affixed to the top of the body as they are the easiest to operate. As you advance in skills, consider mid wing and low wing models which provide more control to the plane.Flying RC planes does not require a license. However, before you fly, you should consider insurance. If you plan crashes into property you are responsible for the damage it causes. Many clubs require you to have insurance in order to fly on their fields. (MORE)
In the past century, the world has seemed to shrink by a remarkable amount. Trips across entire oceans that used to take weeks or even months by boat can now be completed in a… fraction of that time. With air travel, people can visit faraway family or commute to another continent for business and return home in time for the weekend. The invention that has made this all possible is one that many take for granted now: the wings on an airplane.Mankind has yearned to take to the skies for many generations, as can be demonstrated by the Greek myth of Icarus. While Icarus's wax and feather wings led to serious trouble, they certainly did not discourage later forays into the field of aeronautics. The Wright brothers developed the first modern flying machines but did not invent the modern airplane wing. Instead they used wings that turned with shifts in body-weight. The modern wing was developed over time by the military inventors of several countries. By the end of the First World War, biplanes became a thing of the past and the modern style wing was created.Early airplanes tended to use several wings to provide lift, and for a while, this was a fantastic way to get slow, fragile machines into the air. When several wings are used, as in a biplane, they can provide more lift without needing more speed. When speed became important and improved engines came along, the shapes of aircraft changed. They ditched their flimsy arrays and relied instead on a single wing, which was larger and longer. These monoplanes were able to fly far faster than biplanes or triplanes, since their single set of flight appendages created less drag. As jets and other fast aircraft came along, wings could be made thinner, producing lift through speed instead of size.The shape of a wing, also known as an airfoil, works by changing the pressure of the air above and below it. In a matter of speaking, as the air travels over it, the force of the air's passage sucks the airfoil upwards. It's a similar idea to how a propeller works. The simplest way to describe it might be to say that airfoils push air down, which pushes the plane up. Bigger airfoils can push more air down, meaning that the plane can fly much more slowly without stalling or falling. High-speed wings are much flatter, since the high speeds provide plenty of air to push down and smaller wings cause less friction, which lets a plane go faster. A cool thing about airfoils is that they're all around in nature as well, such as on pine tree seeds and on birds.Many kids and even adults know how to make simple paper airplanes, and these can show how airfoils work. If your paper creation has small wings, it will be able to fly faster, but will need a stronger launch to get it flying, just like a jet fighter. Paper airplanes with big wings can glide with little force and can keep gliding even with extra weight added on, like small coins. Just like real planes, the different kinds of airfoils are meant to do different things, from smaller, speedier designs to large, slow transports with excellent lift. If you experiment with different designs, you might be surprised at what you can get your paper craft to do.With the incredibly powerful jet and rocket engines that exist today, it's possible to make things fly without wings at all. However, it's not very efficient to let the engine do all of the work, and so that's why planes still need airfoils. Some future designs use very large wings in order to keep flying with very little help from engines, and are meant for very long flights. Others use forward-swept airfoils which are hard to control at some speeds but are incredibly nimble. One of the most exciting designs involves materials that contract and expand like muscles, which allows them to fly like birds by flapping. How many of these designs will catch on is anyone's guess.The airplane wing has developed throughout the years to take people through the skies across continents, oceans, and around the world more quickly than ever before. The airplane beat out the blimp, the train, and the ship as the fastest way to get from one point to another, and by using different designs, planes can be used to move a lot of cargo, too. Some of the most extreme planes using vastly different kinds of airfoils are military planes, such as the massive Hercules with its gigantic wings, and the tiny Starfighter, which has extremely small and thin airfoils. However the designs of flying machines may change over the coming years and decades, most of them will continue to rely on wings to traverse the skies.Famous renaissance inventor Leonardo da Vinci invented a number of machines that were meant to mimic the wings of animals. Some of them flapped like birds, but the most likely to have worked was his glider. Amazingly, his design wasn't too different from the modern hang-glider, and modern reconstructions show that he was very close to getting it right. (MORE)
