    MADRID Rays Wilson Ramos Jersey , July 24 (Xinhua) -- At least 24 people have been killed and around 100 injured after a train derailed just outside the city of Santiago de Compostela in the northwestern of Spain on Wednesday evening.

    The El Pais newspaper reported that less than two hours after the accident which happened at 20:42 local time, 24 bodies had been found by the side of the tracks next to the accident scene.

    The accident occurred at the junction of A Grandeira, which is three kilometers south of Santiago and reports indicated that the train, which was travelling from Madrid to Ferrol, derailed on a bend shortly after coming out of a tunnel.

    The derailment occurred on a track that has recently been constructed in order to take the AVE high-speed train Rays Wade Davis Jersey , although the derailed train is an ALVIA, a slower train than the AVE, which is capable of reaching speeds of over 300 kilometers per hour.

    At least 13 carriages came off the rails with several lying on the side of an embankment with several of them catching fire. Reports said that several of the carriages literally flew through the air in the accident.

    Meanwhile one of the motors of the engine was thrown out by the force of impact while the engine itself is on fire by the side of track.

    Around 240 people are thought to have been travelling on the train, which was especially full because Thursday is the St John holiday of Santiago, the patron saint of the region of Galicia and the start of a four-day weekend in the region.

    The Minister of Public Works Ana Pastor is expected to visit the accident scene in the coming hours Rays Wade Boggs Jersey , while Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, who is from Galicia, is said to be following developments closely.

    WASHINGTON, Oct. 3 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. economy continued to add a considerable number of new jobs in September, and the jobless rate fell to the lowest level since July 2008 Rays Tommy Hunter Jersey , the Labor Department said Friday, another evidence that the world's top economy is well on track to a booming recovery.

    Except August, the job gains have been above 200,000 for seven months. After revision, employment gains were 69 Rays Steven Souza Jersey ,000 more than previously reported in July and August.

    With Friday's report, American businesses extended the longest streak of private-sector job gains on record.

    So far this year, private employment has risen by nearly 2 million, on track for the strongest year of private-sector job growth since 1998, said Jason Furman Rays Matt Duffy Jersey , chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, in a statement.

    The U.S. economy grew 4.6 percent in the second quarter, boosted by solid growth of personal consumption and private investment. Economists generally forecasted the economy to increase by more than 3 percent in the second half of the year, as they see a strong recovery is in place.

    In spite of the remarkable improvement, the Federal Reserve remained cautious in lifting the interest rate as it sees considerable slack in the job market.

    The labor force participation rate Rays Logan Forsythe Jersey , the share of the working- age population employed or looking for a job, was essentially unchanged at 62.7 percent. The number of long-term unemployed, or those who stay jobless for 27 weeks or more, was little changed at 3 million, accounting for 31.9 percent of the unemployed. Average hourly earnings was barely changed at 24.53 U.S. dollars.

    The Center for American Progress Rays Kevin Kiermaier Jersey , a Washington-based think tank, said in a report that the labor force participation rate has been declining since the end of the recession and is generally as low as it was in the late 1970s.

    According to the Center, the labor market is much healthier today than at any point since the Great Recession. But beneath the top-line numbers, it still has a long way to go before it returns to historically healthy conditions.

    Bungee Jumping is a favorite adventure for many travelers. It gives utmost amusement and great pleasure. Physicists say that the dramatic demonstration of Bungee jumping is the conversion of energy. Let see the information behind this popular adventure called Bungee Jumping in this article.

    The history of bungee jumping starts here. It is a recent activity related to the centuries old ritualistic practice. It came from the "Land divers" of Pentecost Island. People did this activity as an offering to the God. Men demonstrated their courage and offered the injuries to their gods for an abundant harvest they received. That?s where the habit of somersaulting starts.

    The member of Oxford University Dangerous Sport club got inspired by the film "Vine Jumpers" in England thereby he introduced this new recreational activity called "Bungee Jumping" in April 1979. This sport is popular among people of New Zealand and France in 1980. Later, John and Peter Kockelman brought this to United States. In 1990s Rays Joe Maddon Jersey , it was the amusing sport loved by people all around the world. Proper facilities had been established in various countries and professional trainers help you to enjoy the jumping amusement to the full extent.

    Equipment required:

    Special cords are manufacturing for Bungee Jumping according to the theory in Physics. It can be stretched to three or four times of their normal length. They are soft and springy cords. The harnesses are derived from the mountain climbing equipment. It does the work as the carabiner which is the primary link between the cord and the harness.

    These days, the protection facilities are high. They use redundant connection, double hookups to the jumpers, the body harness, the chest and shoulder harnesses.

    The proper match of Cord and Jumper should produce maximum accelerations of the order of 3?gs. For instance Rays Evan Longoria Jersey , the bungee cord should be about 9 m free length for the jump height of approximately 28m.

    Safety measures:

    Initially there was no proper idea about the facilities. This activi.
