    Some Fun New Year's Eve – New Year's Day Stuff

    1) Hawaiian Airlines Flight Takes Off In 2018, Lands In 2017
    What a difference a year makes.
    By David Moye

    It’s plane crazy: A flight that took off in 2018 ended up landing in 2017.

    Hawaiian Airlines Flight 446 was scheduled to depart Auckland, New Zealand, on Dec. 31 at 11:55 p.m. local time on its way to Honolulu.

    However, an unexpected 10-minute delay meant that it took off at 12:05 a.m. on Jan. 1, 2018.

    Thanks to the location of the international date line, Honolulu is 23 hours behind Auckland. That meant the eight-hour flight landed at 10:16 a.m. on Dec. 31, 2017.

    2) New Year’s rarity! Twin brother and sister born in different years
    DELANO, Calif. – A slight rarity in California as twins were born in different years.

    It appears the first baby born in Kern County was in Delano. Delano Regional Medical Center officials tell KERO that a set of twins was born at the end of 2017 and the start of 2018.

    The first twin was born at 11:58 p.m. Sunday. He was 5 lbs 9 oz, 18 inches. The second twin, a girl, was born 12:16 a.m Monday. She weighed 4 lbs 10 oz. and was 16 inches. Doctors say the girl was slightly breached, so she had to be delivered via caesarean section. She is believed to be the first baby born in 2018 in Kern County.

    The parents say the babies were about a month early.

    Just for information:
    What Are the Odds of Twins Born in Different Years?

    The following is a guest post by Louise Firth Campbell and Amram Shapiro, the authors (with Rosalind Wright) of The Book of Odds: From Lightning Strikes to Love at First Sight, the Odds of Everyday Life.

    Rare news stories recur with surprising regularity — one of these annual stories is the birth of twins in two different years.

    You can see the appeal to editors. Babies are photogenic, especially twins. The symbolism of the New Year as a baby which ages to dotage by year end is an old one, a staple of thousands of New Year’s cards. There is an interesting apparent time tension in the story. Twins share a womb and genomes. Yet a few seconds separation in time of birth makes an apparent year’s worth of difference.[1]  This event is considered a rarity and only a handful of cases are reported in the press each year. This rarity makes it news, but is the event really as rare as it seems?

    Let’s start with the news in 2013/2014. If the cases reported in the North American media, two in the U.S. and one in Canada, are the only cases, these events are rare indeed. There are about 4 million births a year in the U.S. That would suggest these events are as rare as 1 in 2 million. Someone visiting the Grand Canyon is more likely to die by falling off the edge (1 in 1.5 million).[2]  That doesn’t feel right to us.

    Not all cases of twins born a year apart are reported. One or two are all the media need for their annual story. Given that such births add complications — two birthdays, separate parties, bragging rights issues, and who knows what tax consequences –people can be forgiven for fudging or ignoring the hours. Moreover, a birth is an intense event, especially twin births. More attention will be paid to the procedure than the clock. And some parents may wish to guard their privacy and pass on Warhol’s “fifteen minutes of fame.”

    Have fun,
