Ryan LaFlare flights for UFC fights

Long Island’s Ryan LaFlare began his mixed martial arts career by fighting for Ring of Combat in Atlantic City, New Jersey, a simple 162-mile drive from his home in Copiague. Since signing with the UFC, LaFlare has traveled the world to compete. His seventh UFC fight is Feb. 11, 2017, in … wait for it … Brooklyn, New York. Follow his career flight path below.


Note: Miles shown represent the distance from NYC to that city via World Atlas, and don’t reflect LaFlare’s actual flight itinerary. They also do not include the return flight back to New York.


Around the world . . . almost

The circumference of Earth measured at the equator is 24,901.55 miles. So, Ryan LaFlare is close to having flown around the world just to get to his fights in mixed martial arts, a sport that is still banned in his home state of New York. If you include the trips back to New York, he’s nearly been around the world both horizontally and vertically. (The Earth’s circumference from pole to pole is 24,860 miles.)

UFC fight 1: Stockholm, Sweden

UFC fight 2: Goiania, Brazil

UFC fight 3: Sacramento, California

UFC fight 4: Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

UFC fight 5: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

UFC fight 6: Las Vegas, Nevada

UFC fight 7: Brooklyn, New York

2005-14 New York casino revenue

Eight of the state’s nine video gaming facilities have seen their revenue slow or decline in recent years. The one exception has been Resorts World Casino at Aqueduct Racetrack in Jamaica, Queens, which took in more than $792 million in the 2013-14 fiscal year, up from more than $696 million the year before. Here are figures from the State Gaming Commission for each video lottery terminal parlor for every full fiscal year of operation, ending with the 2013-14 year. If nine gaming facilities are hard to track, click on names in the color key to remove places until you are down to one; then you can turn others on or off as desired.

The solar mass (M☉) is a standard unit of mass in astronomy that is used to indicate the masses of other stars, as well as clusters, nebulae and galaxies. It is equal to the mass of the Sun, about two nonillion kilograms. this is a doc cloud test link.

The value of the gravitational constant was derived from measurements that were made by Henry Cavendish in 1798 with a torsion balance. The value he obtained differs by only 1% from the modern value. The diurnal parallax of the Sun was accurately measured during the transits of Venus in 1761 and 1769, yielding a value of 9″ (compared to the present 1976 value of 8.794148″). If we know the value of the diurnal parallax, we can determine the distance to the Sun from the geometry of the Earth. this is a doc cloud test link.

Bose–Einstein statistics encourages identical bosons to crowd into one quantum state, but not any state is necessarily convenient for it. Aside of statistics, bosons can interact – for example, helium-4 atoms are repulsed by intermolecular force on a very close approach, and if one hypothesize their condensation in a spatially-localized state, then gains from the statistics cannot overcome a prohibitive force potential.

A photon is an elementary particle, the quantum of light and all other forms of electromagnetic radiation, and the force carrier for the electromagnetic force, even when static via virtual photons.

The effects of this force are easily observable at both the microscopic and macroscopic level, because the photon has zero rest mass; this allows long distance interactions.

Like all elementary particles, photons are currently best explained by quantum mechanics and exhibit wave–particle duality, exhibiting properties of both waves and particles.

For example, a single photon may be refracted by a lens or exhibit wave interference with itself, but also act as a particle giving a definite result when its position is measured.

super simple shortcode example...During the 18–19th centuries, attention to the three body problem by Euler, Clairaut, and D'Alembert led to more accurate predictions about the motions of the Moon and planets. This work was further refined by Lagrange and Laplace, allowing the masses of the planets and moons to be estimated from their perturbations.
