First-Time Carrier Landings!

Young airmen and airwoman's carrier passes, snags and catapult launches.  Four new USN and USMC pilots experiencing their first, solo carrier landings.  Having practiced for weeks at Point Mugu using a pre-marked runway to simulate a carrier deck, they're finally authorized to fly seaward to perform their skills on a moving ship, and get rated by the Landing Signal Operators.  As noted by one airman, because the angle of the deck is to the left of the carrier's beam and sailing direction (...9 degrees from center-line, since the 1954 advent of the USN's jets), the landing deck is moving both away and to the right.

Just what the doctor ordered
GRILLING meat gives it great flavour. This taste, though, comes at a price, since the process creates molecules called polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) which damage DNA and thus increase the eater’s chances of developing colon cancer. For those who think barbecues one of summer’s great delights, that is a shame. But a group of researchers led by Isabel Ferreira of the University of Porto, in Portugal, think they have found a way around the problem. When barbecuing meat, they suggest, you should add beer.
