Manchester Bomber

A compilation of facts in the media.

Salman Ramadan Abedi, Libyan descent.
Born in Manchester.
He lived in Manchester, [maybe in] Elsmore Road, Manchester,
He grew up in the Whalley Range area and attended Whalley Range High School before apparently working at Didsbury Mosque in 2013.

Abedi was born in Manchester in 1994, the second youngest of four children.
His parents were Libyan refugees who came to the UK to escape the Gaddafi regime.
His mother, Samia Tabbal, 50, and father, Ramadan Abedi, a security officer, were both born in Libya but appear to have emigrated to London before moving to the Fallowfield area of south Manchester where they have lived for at least ten years.

He has a brother, Ismael. [Press speculation has him as] the 23-year-old man arrested in the Chorlton area of South Manchester, near an address where Abedi’s family previously lived.

ISIS (of course).
The terrorist group released statements in several languages through its central media body praising the atrocity, claiming more than 100 “crusaders” were killed or wounded at the “shameless” concert.
“With Allah’s grace and support, a soldier of the Khilafah [caliphate] managed to place explosive devices in the midst of the gatherings of the crusaders in the British city of Manchester,” said the English version.

Children and teenagers are crusaders?

What’s quiet?

It struck me today, as I was sat watching ducks playing after a noisy 50 mile car trip, I couldn’t hear their chattering.
Then we were back ‘home’ and the back doors were wide open to let the heat out.
Passing traffic, aircraft (we live in a low fly zone), the general noise of a township where there are too many people in too little a space was obvious and loud.

Tell me, do you hear a buzz, tone, or roaring in your ears the whole time?
The witch doctors call that tinnitus.

I bet people who use(d) firearms still can. Them and big township / city folk?

When a gun goes off the level of sound pressure can generate 150 dB at close range.
That peak sound pressure level (PSPL) is an impulse (short duration) noise .
As for explosives?
Peak SPLs range from 125 to 185 dB at distances of 10 to 300 m.
The main power is coming from frequencies that were sub 400 Hz.
They all generate that ‘ringing’ or “Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee” effect!
Incidently the safe distance is about 50-200 m for all weapons.
And there is you, or him, less than 6 feet away from a pistol, shotgun or rifle, or a popper.
BIG HOLES are ripped in your hearing by unprotected sex whoops trigger time.

Only what about long-term noise?
Living in a large township or city is NEVER quiet.
Take moderate to heavy traffic. You’re talking about 75-85 dB.
85 dB? That’s pain threshold.
The WHO say continuous levels above 40 dB at night or 55 dB during the day generate mental and physical damage which includes tinnitus and large gaps in your hearing.
Ho hum, the price of modern living.

So can such damage repair itself over time? Nope.
In the main you’ll tune out some tinnitus, but once whatever frequency range has been lost, it is gone forever.

Still you can sort of help yourself by understanding that and letting the ear ‘relax’ before putting it to use as (for example) a night walker.

Your keenest senses are (in patrol order) smell, hearing and sight.
All easily swamped. To help them help you, you might consider:-
Smell. Washing with strong soaps, smoking, drinking or eating strong flavours is all bad.
Hearing. A few hours before hand wearing bin type ear defenders helps.
Sight. Wearing wrap round dark glasses or sitting in red light before going out helps.

All that helps to enhance your senses until . . . .
There is a certain sort of truth in the saying that “No op-plan survives first contact.”
Neither does the most sensitive of your most essential senses.

What about the Christian kids?

UK Schools are being urged to move revision classes and reschedule physical education to accommodate the needs of Muslim pupils fasting for Ramadan.
A pamphlet published by the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL), authored by ‘inclusion specialist’ Anna Cole – warns: ‘Young people should be made aware that Islam does not require them to put their futures in jeopardy.’

So why put Christian kids future in jeopardy?
Why do they always have to modify or even break their schedules to accommodate Islam?
After all this is England and not Islam Central (yet).

The balance has gone wrong.
If you live here, you should live by our rules.
After all if you go to a foreign country you have to abide by their rules or pay the price.
It’s only here where the weak minds of academia and the limp wrist politicians make the indigenous population bend to the will of others in the guise of political correctness, multicultural and religious tolerance.

You just can’t stop it can you?

(NBCnews.com)
The United States launched an airstrike against pro-Syrian forces who advanced inside a “de-conflicted zone” Thursday even though Russia urged them not to, the U.S.-led coalition said.

They were the good guys idiots.
Only not yours apparently.
Be careful what you do America.
Not many people approve of your actions in that neighbourhood.

High Tech Stupidity

Just when I thought the government couldn’t get more stupid, I read this:
Manned air traffic control towers to become obsolete by allowing airports to be controlled miles away using live streams of high-definition video.

From 2019, the controllers for Docklands airport, East London, will be a bank of HD screens, in a digital control room at the UK’s national air traffic control service, in Swanwick, Hampshire. 80 miles away.

Some 80,000 flights used Docklands airport in 2014.
London City Airport have received planning permission to expand the airport, with a parallel taxi lane and an extended terminal to welcome 6.5m passengers per year by 2025.

So my question now is what happens when the electricity goes off, they get hacked, there is a terrorist attack, or the software goes wrong. Strikes at NATS are not unknown either.

Eyes on to me has got to be the one rule when dealing with aircraft movements.
After all will their high def screens pick up low flying birds, debris, or fuel leaks?
It’s claimed they can see drones. Well bully for them only drones come in all sizes the pico version weighing ounces and less than 4 inches across. Too small to make a difference? Can you guarantee that? Plus you’ve got the expertise of the personnel, the local knowledge, the gut feeling sort of thing.

This will be a disaster waiting to happen.
The only saving grace is it will happen on London, Sadiq Khan’s patch, and not somewhere more important.
