Swedish Research on the Effectiveness of Seatbelts The earliest major study of seat belts was carried out in Sweden in the s. Some studies had been conducted before this, but had been based on samples which were too small, or that they were not representative of all accidents that had occurred when and where the study took place. In addition the wide range of models of vehicle and types of seat belt had meant that it was difficult to compare results between the studies. The author implied that reporting the damage to the company was mandatory to take advantage of this guarantee, but did not describe the process.
This resulted in a substantial data set containing a large range of injury severities and relative completeness in reporting accidents. Accident reports were collected by Volvo using this method between the end of March and the end of March

News Desk World War Three, by Mistake Harsh political rhetoric, combined with the vulnerability of the nuclear command-and-control system, has made the risk of global catastrophe greater than ever. By Eric Schlosser December 23, A dilemma has haunted nuclear strategy since the first detonation of an atomic bomb: How do you prevent a nuclear attack while preserving the ability to launch one? The Soviets had recently invaded Afghanistan, and the animosity between the two superpowers was greater than at any other time since the Cuban Missile Crisis.
Air Force ballistic-missile crews removed their launch keys from the safes, bomber crews ran to their planes, fighter planes took off to search the skies, and the Federal Aviation Administration prepared to order every airborne commercial airliner to land. His military aide, General William Odom, was calling to inform him that two hundred and twenty missiles launched from Soviet submarines were heading toward the United States. Brzezinski told Odom to get confirmation of the attack.

The tanks were 26ft long by 10ft wide and rolled on to the battlefield at the Battle of Cambrai on November 20, It was the first time tanks had been used en mass, as part of a strategic land and air attack, designed to penetrate Germany’s supposedly impenetrable lines, breaking the bloody stalemate at Passchendaele and Ypres. They had previously been used sparingly in support roles such as the 72 tanks hidden in south-west of Ypres at the Battle of Messines but never so aggressively, and never in these numbers.
And so on November 20, , about Mark IV tanks were made ready for the battlefield, facing down German heavy artillery weaponry. The creation was in tribute to the engineers who designed them and the eight-man crews who drove them into the fierce heat of battle during the First World War. The tanks were 26ft long by 10ft wide and rolled on to the battlefield at the Battle of Cambrai on November 20, Despite significant improvements in maneuverability and weaponry from it’s predecessor the Mark I – the Mark II and III only incorporating minor improvements, spending much of their run in training sequences – the Mark IV’s weaknesses were still exposed, with many succumbing to gunfire, shelling and mechanical frailties.
Come the second day of the battle, only around half of the tanks readied for action were still operational, having pushed just five miles into enemy territory. Guy’s task was made all the harder as no original blueprints for the designs still exist, meaning his team created a 3D design using modern computer technology based on old photographs and a Haynes Workshop manual.

Guy painstakingly rebuilt one from scratch, including the insides, weaponry stations and periscopes The steel chassis was welded together by a team at JCB’s factories in Staffordshire.
He also enlisted Hertfordshire-based engineers Chasestead Ltd to manufacture more than components, including gun mounts, periscopes and even 3, fake rivets for authenticity. Like the Mark I before it, the tanks came in Male and Female versions, which differed based on their weaponry and usage – some heavily attack orientated, others used for defensive or support roles.
