Should we have a dream job for our life?


According to Confucius, he said, “choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life”?. I think that sentence has hiding real meaning which is not following money for your life. If you love your job, you can get worthwhile even though you cannot get enough money for your life.

I have a dream job, it is realistic but it is very difficult to get that dream job. The most people’s dream jobs are difficult, or some people’s dream job is not realistic. I think that it depends on what they want to get in their dream job. If their purpose is money, it is not realistic and it is difficult to get that dream job because when they try to get a dream job, that might be boring and it might not enjoy for them, but If they find worthwhile in their dream job, it is going to be really exciting and they could get energy through their challenge. Also, they have passion for challenging to their dream job.

I have experience which is full time job after graduated from university in Korea. When I work in Korea, I was bored and not exiting. I just needed to earn money for my life. I do not have passion for my job. It was really hard time for me. When I get stress, I always think about quitting for a job. At that time I thought that I need a new job that I have passion for that job even though salary is not high. Therefore, Money is not first, Passion is first.

Effect of farting on aircraft

During flight, human have no patience with farting because it is physiological phenomena. Also, in-flight farts inevitable because of change in pressure. However, farting could be dangerous. If the pilot restrains a fart, all the pilot affect his abilities to control the airplane. As passangers fart as well. There are some interesting that article which are women’s farts smell worse than men’s and most people fart about ten times a day.

I think that this article is involved in one of human factors which are stress and lack of resources. Farting give to people stress because it is very smelly, but people can not say to people who parts in airplane because it is physiological phenomena. Also, farting in aircraft is involved with lack of resouces because farting destroy air pollution in airplane, so aircraft need an air purigication system.

I never heard about farting accident, but it can be dangerous when aircraft flight. if the pilot affect his abilities to control the airplane due to farting, it will be involved with big accident. Therefore, aviation industry need to develop air pollution system for safety’s sake. farting is physiological phenomena.

Advantage of the new coating technology

Sharkskin coating is emulated from shark. Sharkskin’s shape is “V” form wrinkle. If sharkskin’s shape apply to aircraft, it would be lessen the air resistance because sharkskin can minimize the air resistance by removing from turbulence.

I think that coating would be more effective for aircraft. It means that aircraft company could get more profit by using sharkskin coating because it can make to reduce the air resistance which means that could make fuel cost reduction. According to NASA, they proved that sharkskin coating can minimize the air resistance until 9%.

They have a problem which is a durability, but evolution in paint technology cover to sharkskin durability. so they should challnege more development of new coating technology because we need to make fuel reduction.

If i were an aircraft designer, I would look for inspiration from insect because the number of scientist have inveted many technology from nature. especialy insect, insect has many advantage. Sometimes we can not believe their ability. We need to development technology for humanity. Therefore, we analyze insect for improving our technology.

Does Qantas really need restructuring a business?

The Qantas decided that Qantas laid off a five hundred employees who are 200 Qantas line maintenance, 250 contractors at Avalon in Victoria and others 50 people because of financial difficulties.  Also, The latest cuts take the total number of jobs axed from Qantas’s engineering operations this year to about 1260. I think that this Qantas’s decision is just for their profits. It just show that they do not think about passenger’s safety because they cut the large of number maintenance for their profits. Also, the most people know that they have financial difficulties recently but their decision is not helpful for Qantas and passengers. Therefore, they have to solve this finanacial difficulties by the ohter way that they increase their economy by using the other business item which are best service, best safety, best environment in airplane. It might be high price for passengers but quality is better than quantity which means their profits.

Qantas is one of largest airline in Australia aviation indutsry but if they cut many employees, they will lost credibilty from their customers and their cooperation company. Even though, they have financial difficulties. Therefore, If Qantas want to be best Airline company in world, they should find the other way for financial difficulties with out cut employees.

The author used some statistics about their restructuring a business. According to the author, “In August Qantas closed its heavy maintenance base at Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport, resulting in the loss of 422 jobs. A further 113 positions have already gone from the base at Avalon, and the latest cuts will leave the engineering workforce there at 340 – just over half its size at the start of the year.”, also the author’s statistics showed how the problem serious in Qantas. It makes to understand easily for audience.
