Boston Common ? Walk through history

June 6, 2010

The City of Boston has been publicized by the many achievements the city has accomplished in areas such as its culture, first rate educational facilities, successful sports industry and also its place in the beginning of the history of United States.  Tourism in Boston blooms, with over 12 million visitors per year who comes to enjoy the many attractions the city has to offer.

One of the attractions that fall into the categories of history as well as beauty and grandeur is the Boston Common.  It is an affix for the Emerald Necklace which is an arrangement of linked parks that twists through parts of Boston.

Boston Common has a history that dates back to 1634, where it served as an ordinary field serving as a place for public hangings along with being used for military purposes.  In 1817, the scaffolds were removed and cattle browsed the fields until it was outlawed in 1830. The park was also used by personalities such as Martin Luther King Jr., Pope John Paul II and Gloria Steinman to give speeches to the public. Presently it is a public park used leisurely by the community.

There are a few historical monuments to be viewed at the park that are located throughout.  George F Parkman who contributed five million dollars for the preservation of the park has a monument build in remembrance in 1912 called the Parkman Bandstand. The Soldiers and Sailors Monument at Flagstaff Hill serves as an honouring monument for Civil War troops.

Garden Brewer donated the Brewer Fountain in 1868, which shows the mythical figures of Neptune, Galatea, Amphitrite and Acis in bronze. It is a precise copy of the fountain designed for the World Exposition by the French artist Liénard in 1855.  The Central Burying Ground is one of the oldest graveyards in Boston and many graves of British and American causalities from the Battle of Bunker Hill in 1775, can be found here.  The Frog Pond is available for children’s enjoyment in the summer, and during winter times it is used for skating.

The main highlight of the Boston Common is the Freedom Trail, which is a four kilometre long route that goes through downtown Boston, passing 16 historical landmarks of the city. It is the best attraction for the tourists as it takes you through some of the most valued museums, churches, meeting houses, burying grounds, parks, a ship and other markers that contribute to giving you a truly American experience.

It is a city that is never dull. If you are staying at a Boston hotel, you will yearn a luxury hotel Boston, to rest after an adventurer’s day. In the heart of it all, the Taj Boston is situated with easy access to the Boston Common as well as other attractions such as the Theatre District, The Museum of Fine Arts, The Museum of Science, The Children’s Museum, and the Fenway Park.

The History of Computer Based Flight Training

March 6, 2010

Computerized flight simulation turned into a reality in the early 1980’s when the first personal computer devices were developed along with console games. In such an early stage, computer based pilot training was an unimaginable thing.

David Clark headsets and communication solutions were totally out of scope, but in the mind of visionaries that eventually developed the first computer-based flight training systems.

Aviation supplies and vehicle intercom systems were incorporated too simulators to provide a virtual like experience in pilot training programs.

However, if we look back, aircraft supplies and flight simulation appeared almost at the same time: the early history of real flights. In the early days, it was more convenient to teach the pilots from the earth, but feeling as if they were in airborne.

Historic records talk about an aircraft that was mounted on a universal joint to provide a flight simulation: the Sanders Teacher. Later in 1910, another simulator aircraft was built, although there is no registry of its name.

Some stores where aviation supplies are available have pieces of aviation history hanging on their walls. Some David Clark headsets also feature part of such historic background, depicting modern headset accessories and original equipment of the days in the past.

Throughout the 20th century, different aircraft supplies were developed, followed by numerous flight simulators that were invented in those days, but particularly during World War II. Pilot training occurred in both airborne and on ground, including the times when the space era arrived.

It was not until the last decade of the century when computerized pilot training acquired real importance. The 8-bit flight simulator games were transformed into combat simulators in which a player was able to choose aviation supplies to configure the aircraft, but the flight simulation was just a game.

More and more developers began to create more computer based flight simulators, until they became computer based flight training with the turn of the century. Stores were David Clark headsets were available, began to display the innovative courses for pilot training that we know today.

In a computer based flight training program, students can learn about aircraft supplies or just take the pilot training course designed for learning at affordable price, but simulating all the situations that a real airplane will face while crossing the sky.

Realistic flight simulation training also includes all the aviation supplies that any student might need in a real flight, as well as David Clark Headsets to wear during the training, so the experience resemble the real situations in the air.
