WELLINGTON， Sept. 30 (Xinhua) -- International flights coming into land at Auckland， New Zealand's biggest airport， have been hit by laser beams， the New Zealand Police said Friday.
Police were also investigating reports from pilots of laser strike attacks on a domestic flight coming into Wellington Airport.
On Thursday evening， a passenger plane on route to Wellington Airport was targeted with a powerful green laser aimed at the cockpit.
Both pilots suffered headaches and had their vision temporarily obscured as a result of the strike， but the plane later landed safely， said a police statement.
Early Friday， several international flights approaching Auckland Airport were also targeted.
The statement said police were investigating the incidents in both cities and a police helicopter had been deployed when the reports were received to try to pinpoint and track the visual line of the laser.
Anyone caught was likely to face charges such as endangering transport or criminal nuisance.
"Anyone using a laser pointer on an aircraft is putting the lives of those on board in serious danger，" Senior Constable Shane Gealey， Tactical Flight Officer， Air Support Unit， said in the statement.
"While to the person pointing the laser， it may just be a little dot of light， whereas for the person on the other end， it is a large illumination that can cause eye damage， flash blindness and headaches."
The flight attendants' union， E tu， condemned the laser strikes as irresponsible and potentially lethal.
"These strikes put everyone at risk， including the pilots， flight attendants and the general public，" E tu director of organizing aviation Kelvin Ellis said in a statement.
Last month， an Auckland man was identified and charged with endangering transport and was currently before the courts.
Earlier this week， a Police helicopter was hit by a laser strike over Auckland. Enditem
Heartburn does not just affect those who are high stressed or love their spicy foods. Pregnant women suffer from heartburn too. You will find as your pregnancy progresses that antacids tend to become your best friend. Heartburn has nothing to do with your heart.
It is when the acid from your stomach leaks up into the esophagus. Heartburn is very common during pregnancy. In fact one in four women experience heartburn during their pregnancy usually during the third trimester. The reason is that your baby has grown a tremendous amount and your uterus has moved up and is now putting pressure on your stomach. This crowds the digestive tract and allows acids to travel back up the esophagus. There is an old wives tale that if you have bad heartburn Authentic Steven Adams Jersey
, your baby will have a lot of hair. Of course there is no proof in this but it is a fun thing to believe in.
There are ways you can help prevent heartburn during pregnancy. You can start by taking your time while you eat. Not only will you enjoy your food better but your stomach will not have to work as hard to digest your food. You also want to try eating early and eat at least two hours before you go to bed that night so your body has plenty of time to digest your food.
Keep your meals small. Stick with eating six small meals through out the day. Large meals tend to stuff up your stomach which is already extra squashed thanks to your uterus. A stuffed stomach makes it that more likely that some of the food along with stomach acid will make its way back up the esophagus.
Also, make sure you keep your fluids and solids separate. Too much fluid mixed with too much food can distend the stomach which can aggravate heartburn. You also want to eat sitting up. Don't eat while lying down Authentic Shawn Kemp Jersey
, and if you are having a bed time snack make sure you are propped up by pillows.
Your weight plays a part in how much heartburn you may experience. The heavier you are, the more pressure you are placing on your esophageal sphincter. This is another reason why you should not gain to much more than the recommended amount.
