Coral Reef
Coral
Coral
reefs are diverse underwater ecosystems held together by calcium carbonate structures secreted by corals. Coral
Coral
reefs are built by colonies of tiny animals found in marine water that contain few nutrients. Most coral reefs are built from stony corals, which in turn consist of polyps that cluster in groups. The polyps belong to a group of animals known as Cnidaria, which also includes sea anemones and jellyfish. Unlike sea anemones, corals secrete hard carbonate exoskeletons which support and protect the coral polyps. Most reefs grow best in warm, shallow, clear, sunny and agitated water. Often called "rainforests of the sea", shallow coral reefs form some of the most diverse ecosystems on Earth

Pilot-in-command
The pilot in command (PIC) of an aircraft is the person aboard the aircraft who is ultimately responsible for its operation and safety during flight. This would be the captain in a typical two- or three-pilot aircrew, or "pilot" if there is only one certificated and qualified pilot at the controls of an aircraft. The PIC must be legally certificated (or otherwise authorized) to operate the aircraft for the specific flight and flight conditions, but need not be actually manipulating the controls at any given moment. The PIC is the person legally in charge of the aircraft and its flight safety and operation, and would normally be the primary person liable for an infraction of any flight rule. The strict legal definition of PIC may vary slightly from country to country

Airdisaster.com
AirDisaster.com (colloquially referred to as AD.com) was a website devoted to accidents and incidents on commercial airliners. It included voice recordings, accident videos, reports and articles about a number of airliner crashes. It also included crash statistics by company, plane model and year. The site was started in 1998 by Chris Kilroy. It was last updated on 16 August 2010. The site also used to host a forum with discussions on air travel related topics varying from Fear of flying to specific well-known disasters like TWA Flight 800 and the September 11, 2001 attacks.[1] Forums Collapse[edit] On January 17, 2008, the servers hosting the forums crashed, and the owner, Chris Kilroy, stated on a temporary page on the site that he did not intend to reopen the forum portions of the website. Instead of starting the forums back up, users have been urged to take part of the Aviation Safety discussion forums at the sister site of AirDisaster.com, Jetphotos.net

Distilled Beverage
A distilled beverage, spirit, liquor, hard liquor or hard alcohol is an alcoholic beverage produced by distillation of liquid drinks made with grains, fruit, or vegetables that have already gone through alcoholic fermentation. The distillation process purifies the liquid and removes diluting components like water, for the purpose of increasing its proportion of alcohol content (commonly expressed as alcohol by volume, ABV).[1] As distilled beverages contain significantly more alcohol, they are considered "harder" – in North America, the term hard liquor is used to distinguish distilled beverages from undistilled ones. As examples, this term does not include beverages such as beer, wine, mead, sake, or cider, as they are fermented but not distilled. These all have a relatively low alcohol content, typically less than 15%. Brandy

Scuba Set
A scuba set is any breathing apparatus that is carried entirely by an underwater diver and provides the diver with breathing gas at the ambient pressure. Scuba is an anacronym for self-contained underwater breathing apparatus. Although strictly speaking the scuba set is only the diving equipment which is required for providing breathing gas to the diver, general usage includes the harness by which it is carried, and those accessories which are integral parts of the harness and breathing apparatus assembly, such as a jacket or wing style buoyancy compensator and instruments mounted in a combined housing with the pressure gauge, and in the looser sense it has been used to refer to any diving equipment used by the scuba diver, though this would more commonly and accurately be termed scuba equipment or scuba gear
