Fly Underwater With Subwing

This new device could be about to take snorkeling to the next level.Designed by Norwegian sailing enthusiast, Simon Sivertsen, Subwing has been created to be towed along by boat, whilst the person holding on to two wings can be pulled to underwater, by performing acrobatics or just enjoying beautiful sight of undersea world.This idea came to 20-year old Sivertsen while he was on a sailing trip in Mediterranean.

Subwing

‘When sailing through the Greek islands, I was astounded by the clarity of the water, it almost felt like flying when diving, just missing the speed and thrill,’ he write on the company’s website.

‘The first ideas of an underwater wing, towed behind a boat, started emerging deep in the right hemisphere of my brain.

Using world’s strongest rope, Dyneema, Subwing is attached to boat. The two wings can be separately or individually manouevered, allowing user to twist them with the purpose of spin. To attempt a roll, the user twists wings in the opposite directions.

The user can make speeds of up to 4 knots by holding on to wings. No other equipment is needed other than a scuba mask, and a big deep breathe of course. Still when user wants to surface, this wills not a problem as tilting the wings upwards results in resurface.

The company says that generally beginners can spend up to 15 seconds underwater and diving at around three meters but can be increased with training. A number of accessories can be attached to the wing, like a lighting method for dark dives and GoPro camera mount to capture the experience.

The basic Subwing model costs $490, with option of upgrading to a ‘carbon glossy’ one for $895.

Managing as Both Science and Art

According to the Dr. Terry “if sciences teaches one to know, art teaches one to do.”

Some philosophers consider that management is neither science nor art but it is combination of both Science as well as Art.
Science teaches us to know while art teaches us to do. To be successful manger, people need the knowledge of management principles and also skills how the knowledge can be utilized also In order to be successful, managers have to know and do things with effectively and efficiently. Lack of either will result in inefficiency .This requires unique combination of both science and art of managing in them. It may be said that the art of managing begins where the science of managing stops.Since the science of managing is not perfect, the manager must turn to artistic managerial capability to perform a job satisfactorily.

Management: Art or Science

Management like any other practice-whether engineering, accountancy, law or medicine is an art. Artistic application of management know how is clear. It is understood that managing is doing things artistically in the light of the realities of a condition. But modern manager can do better by using the knowledge, methods, theories, concepts, etc. of managing at his/her work place. As a matter of fact, this knowledge, concepts, methods, theories related to managing can be treated as science.

Thus it may be said that managing in practice is definitely an art but the body of knowledge, principles , methods, etc. underlying the practice is science. Even some people might opine that managing is an art struggling to become a science. As a matter of fact, the art and science of managing are not so much conflicting as complementary.
