's president, Karen Hanrahan, said: "The [pounds sterling]2.5m ($3.3m) is an extraordinary gift, not just the money but the fact that Warren Buffett lends his name and reputation and shines a light on the work Glide
Remember, these glide
ratios are hypothetical, and you're unlikely to find a "Speed to Fly" chart for a single-engine, piston GA airplane.
The talus glides
anteriorly placing the narrow portion of the talus in the ankle mortis, a less stable position.
In the present study, it was noted that maximum numbers of glides
were observed in < 50 m glide
distance which can therefore be considered as the optimum traversable distance for the species in the study area.
Track, on the other hand is an exciting experience as kids slide down on tubes of slippery ice slopes in a rapid, hurricane-like motion.
Buffett's first wife Susan, who died in 2004, introduced him to Williams and Glide
. The chairman and chief executive officer of Berkshire Hathaway, Inc., Buffett has pledged almost all of his estimated $65-billion fortune to charity.
Rather than maximizing the time in the air, it's more important to maximize the glide
ratio; that is, the forward distance traveled per unit of altitude loss.
The results show that the typical glide-path allocation resulted in lower ending retirement assets than either the balanced approach or the inverse glide
path-even for the extreme bottom tail of the model portfolios' distribution curves.
It has a number of gaps (we never did figure out how it wanted us to calculate glide
ratios) and reads as if roughly translated into English.
Dr Roeland de Kat, research fellow in the aerodynamics and flight mechanics research group, says: "What interests me is that aerodynamic efficiency is not the dominant factor in determining glide
For gliding down from low elevations, such as trees, this slow, and aerodynamically less efficient flight was the gliding strategy that results in minimal height loss and longest glide
