The young woman here is beautiful, and I love the reflection of the keyboard in her sunglasses … but I gotta tell ya: the combination of grass and green-glow on the back of her laptop is out of this world. I have to admit that I used some color saturation to pump up the colors a little … but not much. This photograph made itself: I just happened to be in the right place, at the right time, to point my camera in the right direction and push the shutter-button…

Driver Trainer Course

Image by spelio
Me, Phil Edye, and Robert Mitchell, proudly stand before one of the few Holdens loaned by the local Hornsby Holden Dealership, for our two week Driver Education Course.

We were going to be tracked by Dr. Ian Henderson?? of the UNSW driver safety unit for years. I’m still alive, with an accident free record, apart from one little dingle from a spin-out on the Jenolan dirt road on a later caving trip in Mum’s Standard.
www.flickr.com/photos/spelio/4654064075/ and a clean police record!!

We were taught there are no such things as "accidents"..

Always be in the right gear at the right place at the right speed at the right time! RMLAID

See also "Car Driving as an Art" by SCH Davis of the Autocar. and
"Roadcraft" The Police Drivers’ Manual" by HM stationary Office
both presented to me by Eric T. Izard for "Highest marks for Driver Education Theory"
I must not have been as good at the practical, they didn’t teach fast driving on winding mountain dirt roads to Jenolan Caves!!

Then I got a Beetle and learnt all about oversteer on gravel roads, on many caving trips around NSW and WA.

An article I cut out from the Canberra Times of 6-3-85
Driving Tip of the Week

A defensive driver is one who drives in a manner to prevent accidents, regardless of other drivers’ faulty driving or non-compliance with traffic laws; one who is careful not to commit any driving errors himself and makes makes allowances for the lack of skill or judgement, or for an improper attitude on the part of another driver, one that does not allow hazards of weather, road conditions, absence of signs or signals to involve him in a collision or dangerous situation.
A defensive driver is prepared for the unexpected at intersections, from parked cars, where reversing, sudden stops by others or darting pedestrians. He is not caught in that last-second futile attempt to avoid an accident. He has a plan for his own and others’ safety. This plan involves the ever-changing situations faced on the road.
He learns to overcome personal inadequacies and those of the vehicle. He studies the environment for hazards that cannot be eliminated, but which must be compensated for.
A defensive driver can arrive at a destination having experienced the minimum number of incidents.

Paul Glover, Motoring Writer in the Canberra Times
also wrote an article titled….

"No such thing as an accident"

Is there such a thing as a road accident?
Not a crash, or a collision, or an impact, or a head-on, but a genuine accident. An incident, perhaps fatal, which qualifies as a pure accident.
The sort of event where no-one is really to blame, and where fate or luck or whatever is the only explanation for a crazy out-of-kilter happening….
He goes on to explain why the road safety experts don’t think so….

I wish the the press and NRMA would stop calling them accidents…

Toward the end of my stroll through Central Park, as I was reaching the 72nd Street exit, I turned and looked north.

Crystal Beach Ontario ~ Canada ~ Former Amusement Park

A few nice health clubs images I found:

Crystal Beach Ontario ~ Canada ~ Former Amusement Park
health clubs
Image by Onasill ~ Bill Badzo
Crystal Beach is a community within Fort Erie, Ontario with a population of 3,800. It was named for the "crystal-clear" water conditions present when it was founded on the northeast shore of Lake Erie, across from Buffalo

Crystal Beach Amusement Park occupied waterfront land within Crystal Beach from 1888 until the park’s closure in 1989. The property was once a health spa whose buildings were sited near and on a natural sand dune fifty feet high and 1,200 feet long parallel to the shore. Part of the dune was excavated to open up land for the spa. In 1888, the spa was replaced by the amusement park, which has since itself been replaced by Crystal Beach Tennis & Yacht Club

Turning Up the Volume on Journal Clubs

" … But other than conferences, the most intensive group engagement with scientific research is still the face-to-face journal club. What are they like then, and what works well? Food might increase attendance “and conviviality” – but given how passionate or social it can get, alcohol might not be the best idea!…."
