Q. Stands to reason that a plane flying into the wind will be slowed compared to one flying with a tailwind. By how much? Might a plane in a stiff wind wind up flying backward?

A. Airspeed = Ground Speed - Wind Speed, plain and simple. Think of aircraft as traveling on a treadmill of air, says Elizabeth Wood in "Science from Your Airplane Window." Going by a posted United schedule, says Purdue aerospace engineering professor Steven Collicott, "I see it takes six hours to fly nonstop from New York to Los Angeles, but only five hours to return. At this latitude, the prevailing winds and jet streams are on average west to east. One hour out of six may not be much to someone working a notebook computer, but for someone traveling with four

September is a busy month in the garden. At this time of the year the garden is more relaxed than it has been for some time but this month brings a new wave of tasks to be done outside. The heat of the summer will remain in the ground for a while yet, this makes September one of the best planting seasons as the roots of plants sown now will have time to become established before the onset of winter.

If you want to move or divide perennials now is a good time to do so. Only keep the youngest or strongest plants and replant in soil that has been improved with organic matter and slow release fertiliser. As your perennials fade away some might not be visible after winter, mark their location with small sticks as digging in the spring

Empowerment From Within

When we make decisions from the heart and speak our truth powerfully and lovingly, we are very much in tune with our authentic selves. But how often do we find ourselves doing just the opposite – feeling out of balance, criticising ourselves, worrying what other people might think, agreeing to things we don't want to do, or going against our intuition?
