Crash Landing

A Plane Crash Lands in the Water

On Friday, January 16, a plane crash landed in an icy river in New York. Amazingly, all the passengers on board survived.

The pilot was forced to bring the plane down in the Hudson River right after it took off from the nearby airport.

There were 150 passengers, three flight attendants and two pilots on board. When the plane landed in the water, everyone made their way out onto the wings where they were quickly rescued by ferries and emergency crews.

Officials think the plane’s engines failed after it collided with a flock of birds in the air.

    Really, the best way to speed up your computer significantly is to purchase an SSD (like a Samsung 840 Evo). It replaces your normal HDD - and it seriously makes the world of difference! Once you go SSD, you'll never want to go back! And as well as removing unneeded things off your PC - cleaning the dust out of it (and replacing thermal paste - but unless you're experienced with computer hardware, get someone who knows what they're doing to do it) will help keep the machine cool and not do a thing called "Thermal Throttling" (which is when the CPU, GPU, etc. decrease the power they can deliver to save themselves from overheating. Cleaning the dust and keeping your PC/Mac clean inside will not only result in lower temperatures, but will help increase the life of the machine. And as we know, a clean computer is a happy computer!  :)
