|WELLINGTON http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/ , March 12 (Xinhua) -- New Zealand is seeing an upsurge in skilled migrants due to its relatively healthy economy and the rebuild of the earthquake-battered Canterbury region, according to a report out Thursday.
Skilled migrants accounted for 44 percent of the 19,668 migrants granted residency from July to December last year, said the report from the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
The 8 http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-vincent-trocheck-jersey ,716 skill migrants approved for residents in that period was up 6 percent year on year.
The top source countries of skilled migrants in that period were India, which accounted for 21 percent, the Philippines (13 percent), Britain (12 percent) and China (12 percent).
Immigration Minister Michael Woodhouse said the figures reflected country's strong economic outlook.
"The figures suggest that New Zealand's economic outlook is strong with the Canterbury rebuild bolstering the underlying recovery," Woodhouse said in a statement.
He also welcomed a 15-percent rise in the number of international students studying in New Zealand last year as a big boost for the education industry.
"In 2014 http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-roberto-luongo-jersey , international education contributed 2.85 billion NZ dollars (2.08 billion U.S. dollars) to the New Zealand economy. It is our fifth largest export industry and supports more than 30,000 jobs."
The Future of Wingsuiting:
In November 2008, 71 wingsuit pilots flew in a stealth-bomber-shaped formation over Skydive Elsinore.
It was the largest slot-specific formation in the short history of this emerging discipline. But how did the event, which was billed as a ?Wingsuit World Record,? change the future of wingsuit flying (if at all)? In a discipline still unrecognized by the FAI and the Guinness Book of World Records http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-radim-vrbata-jersey , what does it mean to try setting new standards?
71: Achievement and Frustration
The idea of a big-way wingsuit record was not new. The most notable previous event was in Cochstedt, Germany in July 2006. Organizers there sought Guinness recognition for the largest number of wingsuits exiting on a single jump run, out of an Antonov 72.
In contrast, the 2008 71-way at Skydive Elsinore was a purely invitational event focused on slot-specific flying in a four-plane formation. A diverse international team reflected a worldwide growth in the discipline and a global desire to achieve something recognizable within our sport. Hailing from as far as South Africa and Russia, participants from 14 countries qualified for a chance to fly in the big-way by demonstrating their skills at official camps and through a referral system. Five were women (the few http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-owen-tippett-jersey , the proud, the only gender not to have a single member axed from her slot!).
The skydiving press (the French ParaMag, British Skydive The Mag and American Parachutist, among others) extensively documented the event.
The 71-way marked significant achievements as well as frustration. In the achievements column, the team flew a new http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-nick-bjugstad-jersey , wider spacing that reduced oscillation and movement within the unlinked formation. This led to multiple smooth and on-level jumps that looked beautiful from the ground.
The previous slot-specific record recognized within the wingsuit community was a 16-way diamond. Like that formation, most small groups had employed a ?head-to-foot? spacing technique that encouraged proximity but usually resulted in trailing flyers at the back and reactive vertical motion within the flock.
The scope and level of organizing, while it left much room for improvement, was also a check in the achievements column. While there was some initial grumbling about the level of seriousness and the pushing of safety standards in communications to team members prior to the event, most participants expressed relief that the 71-way jumps would be a focused record attempt and not ?just another boogie?.
Frustration arose when it came time to judge whether the group had succeeded in setting a ?world record?. The initial goal was to have each wingsuit pilot flying within three-square-meter boxes arranged in a grid that would be superimposed over still photographs of the formation. The organizers? proclamation of success was based on a photograph where all flyers were either fully within or touching at least one edge of their three-square-meter grid square. However http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-micheal-haley-jersey , without an outside judging structure, heated discussions escalated the meaning of ?success? and the best way of judging unlinked formations into a full-throttle debate.
Beyond R&D: 100 over Elsinore
The debate about how to judge large wingsuit formations will continue unabated until an outside governing body agrees to recognize one set of objective criteria. The 71-way was destined to be a ?work in progress? since it had never been done before. With the lessons learned from the experience, an expanded organizing team is preparing for a 100-way wingsuit event at Skydive Elsinore from November 7th to November 13th, 2009.
While some ask whether trying to set records before there are established categories is futile, skydiving is not a sport that waits for mainstream approval in order to change and grow. Wingsuiting is an especially entrepreneurial and fast-growing subculture. The hope is to continue safely demonstrating what is possible. In doing so http://www.floridapanthersteamstore.com/adidas-michael-matheson-jersey , organizers strive to create events that excite new skydivers and unite those already committed to wingsuit flight. Armed with evidence from last year?s judging attempts, big-way organizers are prepared to continue lobbying both the FAI and Guinness.
The 100-way five aircraft formation is invitational. Skills camps are planned between now and July, when official qualifying events begin. A specific Skills Checklist sets out minimum jump requirements and what exit, flying, and canopy skills potential participants need to pr.
