2. Leave your big ship and transfer to small boat to experience either Little Three Gorges at Daning River or Shennong Stream.

3. Go ashore to visit the Fengdu – “Ghost City” (or visit Wanzhou, or Shibaozhai at Zhongxian County)

Yangtze FAQ (Part One)

How do I know which cruiser I am going to take?

There are various piers scattering along the port, which is very difficult for passenger to find the right ship to get onboard. Moreover, the anchorages of all the ships are temporarily decided by ship companies. It often happens that some passengers couldn’t find their ship until the ship had departed, which is over our control. So highly recommend you book the cruise package tour through travel agency, which will include the transportation to the pier to get onboard with the help of our guide and driver.

What is the weather like on Yangtze River?

The average temperature is 30 C° (90F) in July and 10 C° (50F) in January. In summer, dramatic thunderstorms and heavy rains often happen to cause the water level high between July and September, while winter is short and cold. Usually, most ships suspend during winter because of the low water level. April, May, September and October are the peak as well as the best season for taking the cruise.

When will Congress finally battle these lobbyist so we aren’t paying 6 dollars a gallon next year???

Question by D&ECouture: When will Congress finally battle these lobbyist so we aren’t paying 6 dollars a gallon next year???
I know everyone (well I’ll say 90 percent) of America is getting affected by the gas prices and even though ya it’s not extremely horrible it still isn’t great… I can’t remember the last time I was paying 300 dollars a month is just gas for my cars alone and basically all we do is go to work, school (kids), and any daily needs that need to be met..

I understand the whole supply and demand concept as well as China and India demanding oil like never before so of course prices will rise but my questions is when will our Congress Men and Women grow a pair and fight these damn lobbyist and environmentalist and drill for resources that are readily there and can help reduce these prices

That or some new alternative technology needs to be made ASAP, you mean to tell me we have fighter jets that look like the size of birds on radar, are cable of cruising at super sonic and we can go into space but we can’t figure something else to run on but gasoline??? whatever

My grandparents by to go on a trip with me and my sister?

Question by Penelope: My grandparents by to go on a trip with me and my sister?
I’m 15, my sisters 12, our father just passed away and his parents (my grandparents) want to treat us to a trip to just get away and have fun and my grandparents are also getting older so they figure they should go on a trip with us now before they don’t remember who I am.. They want to go somewhere they haven’t been before, so no Ecuador, china, virgin islands, australia, hawaii, or most of Europe. I was thinking Mexico, Alaska, Galapagos, Brazil 2016 Olympics (it’s in a few years but my grandparents are still pretty healthy. They can both walk around all day without a cane or walker.) my grandpa and I like cruises and sailboats, I like swimming in pools and oceans, and my grandma likes shopping and taking pictures. I speak fluent Spanish, my mother and grandma know a little Spanish and German, and we all have passports and really as large a budget as necessary. We don’t want to cut any corners on this trip. Thanks

Fun vacation places near Maryland for Spring Break?

Question by Ky: Fun vacation places near Maryland for Spring Break?
Hello. My Uncle moved from China to Maryland 2 years ago and ever since he’s moved to Maryland he has been working 6 days a week for 11 hours a day. For spring break, in late April, he is going to take about a week off from work and wishes to go somewhere with me to have fun. The problem is, I don’t know many places to go..I’ve suggested driving to Las Vegas, going to Six Flags or some other roller coaster place like Disney World but he doesn’t just want a ‘one day’ vacation. He wants to be able to have fun that day and have fun the next too to create an exciting memory ever since he’s come to America. Does anyone know what vacation spots will be fun..? We will be driving and not by airport, and I really can’t think of anything. I’ve also suggested cruises but he doesn’t like being stuck on a boat (we’ve been to one before). Any suggestions that are near Maryland!?

6. the aliens arrive on earth destroy the most powerful nations before catching a little cold that turns out to be deadly to their race thereby exterminating them. and leaving their advanced technology and out springs new powerful nations. in subsaharan africa arrives the bantu hegemony a xenophobic, restricted, neutral and isolated society. north africa and southern europe becomes the meditteranian alliance. asia and eastern russia becomes the ethnically diverse, siberia-mongolian empire. the rest of europe comes under control of the slavic union. the middle east and northern india comes under the control of the persian aryan nation. the rest of india extending all the way down to austarlia unites to become the dravidian-aboriginal republic, a free and democratic society. while canada mexico and usa unite to become the united tribes of north america an afro-amerindian society with strong indian, anglo and african influences. south america then becomes the new inca empire. and finally the carribean and bahamas and all the surrounding islands becomes the confederated islands of the carribean.

7. or the worst senario the most powerful nations agree to peaceful surrender and help the aliens hunt down their human brothers in the 2nd and third world for anal probing or whatever aliens do.

8. we launch our entire nuclear arsenal at them before they reach earth and destroy them and never knowing why they came here

9. billy bob gets out of his trailer with his 12 gauge and bible and tries to forcefully convert the aliens to cristianity. he then gets vapourized and the the aliens play their own version of cowboys and indians, but this time with the cowboys being the aliens and the indians being the human race.

Physics Questions about Newton’s Laws Help?

Question by Wyatt~: Physics Questions about Newton’s Laws Help?
I just have around 7 basic questions about Newton’s Laws.
Please explain them, and Solve them, Because I am clueless.

1. Which law is in control of a spacecraft which cruises through space at a constant speed without using any fuel?

2. Which law governs when a tablecloth is pulled out from under a setting of china without damaging it?

3. Which law governs why a car is set in motion and not the asphalt highway on which it travels?

4. Which law allows a spaceship to accelerate by burning rocket fuel?

5. Which law relates acceleration to mass?

6. Which law governs when two skaters push apart in a rink?

7. Which law governs why a golf ball will go farther than a baseball if each are hit with the same amount of force?

Best answer:

Answer by Physica Mathematica
1. Which law is in control of a spacecraft which cruises through space at a constant speed without using any fuel?

Newton’s First Law- object in motion (straight line) stays in motion

2. Which law governs when a tablecloth is pulled out from under a setting of china without damaging it?

Newton’s First Law- objects at rest tend to stay at rest

3. Which law governs why a car is set in motion and not the asphalt highway on which it travels?

Actually the problem is flawed. For the most part the car moves forward over the road, but to a very slight extent the highway moves backwards under the car (Newton’s Third Law)

4. Which law allows a spaceship to accelerate by burning rocket fuel?

Newton’s Second Law – Force = mass times acceleration

5. Which law relates acceleration to mass?

Newton’s Second Law – Force = mass times acceleration

6. Which law governs when two skaters push apart in a rink?

Newton’s Third Law – for every force or action there is a force or reaction in the opposite direction of equal magnitude– they should have worded this more carefully, and said something like “if one of the ice skaters pushes against the other, they both move opposite one to the other.
To some extent we should mention Newton’s Second Law because although both get the same force, the one with less mass will accelerate more than the other.

7. Which law governs why a golf ball will go farther than a baseball if each are hit with the same amount of force?

Newton’s Second Law – Force equals mass times acceleration

To some extent this exercise could be a problem. Although I feel I captured the intent, a student might leave this thinking that different “Newton Laws” apply to different problems.

All 3 laws are always in play — they don’t “pick and choose” or “take turns”.

Cheers!
