First known Canadian cases of canine influenza found in two Ontario dogs

first_imgTwo dogs in southwestern Ontario have tested positive for a strain of canine influenza in what health officials are calling the virus’s first known incursion into Canada.The Windsor-Essex County Health Unit said the dogs were brought to Canada from South Korea through the United States late last month and were showing signs of respiratory disease during a veterinary exam the next day.A small number of dogs that came into close contact with the pair also have mild respiratory disease but test results for those animals are not yet available, the agency said.It says the H3N2 canine influenza virus is highly transmissible between dogs and has become widespread in parts of Asia and caused outbreaks in some U.S. locations, particularly in shelters.The health unit said most dogs who develop the disease don’t get seriously ill, and typically show symptoms similar to those from other respiratory infections such as the so-called kennel cough.Dogs who show symptoms of respiratory disease, such as decreased appetite and fever, should be kept away from other dogs for at least two weeks to limit spreading, it said.Health officials said there is no known human risk from the virus, but note the risk that it might mix with human seasonal influenza viruses is “a potential concern.”“The investigation and response are ongoing, and at this point, the concern mainly involves the imported dogs and their close contacts,” they said in a statement.“Affected and exposed dogs are being confined by their owners to help prevent further spread. However, dog owners in Windsor and Essex County should be vigilant and watch for signs of respiratory disease in their dogs, particularly dogs that frequently have contact with other dogs.”last_img read more

Canada pressured to match tough climate talk with leadership at key meeting

first_imgThe Canadian Press OTTAWA — The Canadian government is facing heavy pressure to fill a leadership void at an international meeting trying to set the rules for implementing the Paris Climate Change accord.Catherine Abreu, executive director of the Climate Action Network Canada, said host Poland, which is still heavily reliant on coal, is not playing the typical leadership role.The Brexit crisis in the U.K., wild protests against carbon taxes in France, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s planned departure from politics have made all three less inclined to take on their past roles of being at the forefront of pushing the Paris goals.Abreu says there is pressure on Canada at the meeting to fill that void.Officials arrived in the small coal-mining city of Katowice last week to get the nuts and bolts of the rulebook together and the draft is coming out today.Politicians arriving this week have to do the heavier lifting to overcome political disagreements about what the world has to do to limit global warming and how they will all be held accountable for doing it.last_img read more

Fort St John man charged with smuggling cocaine in Halifax facing separate

first_imgWith files from the Halifax Chronicle-Herald: FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A Fort St. John man who was charged with conspiracy to import cocaine in Halifax back in June will be appearing in court early next month on a number of separate charges stemming from arrests that occurred shortly after he was released on bail.46-year-old Darcy Peter Bailey was arrested on June 9th along with two other men after Canada Border Services Agency divers discovered roughly 150 kilograms of cocaine had been strapped to the bottom of the Arica, a container ship registered in Liberia. The three men were allegedly in possession of diving equipment when they were arrested near the Port of Halifax, and were charged with conspiracy to import cocaine into Canada.In mid-July, Bailey was released on $10,000 bail along with 34-year-old Matthew Ryan Lambert of Richmond, B.C., whose bail was set at $50,000. The Halifax Chronicle-Herald is reporting that after they were released from custody on July 18th, the pair were re-arrested that evening and charged with breaching their conditions by having indirect contact through Lambert’s wife.After they were freed again the next day, the pair flew back to B.C. where they were subsequently arrested on new charges.Bailey was arrested in Baldonnel on July 26th and was charged with 16 offences, including five counts of possessing a firearm without a license, eight counts of possessing weapons while prohibited, and one count of altering a firearm serial number.Then on August 2nd, he was arrested yet again, this time in Abbotsford. He faces charges of possessing a prohibited or restricted firearm with ammunition and unauthorized possession in a motor vehicle in connection with that arrest.Bailey is set to appear at the Fort St. John law courts on Monday, October 1st, at 9:30 a.m.A fourth man, 29-year-old Nelson Ricardo Alvarado-Calles of Richmond Hill, Ontario was arrested in August and then transported to Halifax, where he was charged in connection with the cocaine seizure.last_img read more

Trump now says he wants more legal immigration

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump says he’s now in favour of more legal immigration because of economic gains on his watch.Trump raised eyebrows in his State of the Union speech when he said he wanted people “to come into our country in the largest numbers ever, but they have to come in legally.” His policy positions to date do not reflect that wish.Asked Wednesday during a meeting with regional reporters whether the line represented a change in policy, Trump said it did.That’s according to a transcript tweeted by a reporter from The Advocate, Louisiana newspaper, in which Trump is quoted saying: “I need more people coming in because we need people to run the factories and plants and companies that are moving back in.”Jill Colvin, The Associated Press read more

Agrium defiant as top investor moves to shake up board

CALGARY — Agrium Inc. was defiant Monday as its largest shareholder, New York hedge fund Jana Partners LLC, demanded five new directors be added to the Canadian agriculture giant’s board.The company (TSX:AGU) dismissed Jana Partners LLC’s latest move as “almost certain to fail” and vowed to stick with its current strategy.The nominees Jana is proposing include the fund’s founder Barry Rosenstein and former Liberal agriculture minister Lyle Vanclief. Also on the slate are three men with the executive experience in retail and distribution that Jana says is lacking.“Agrium’s board has had every opportunity to respond constructively to our analysis and instead simply attempted to avoid the issues,” Rosenstein said in a statement announcing the board challenge.Among other things, Jana wants Agrium to spin off its retail business, which supplies farmers with fertilizers, seeds and other products, from the part of its business that produces fertilizer.In a statement, Agrium CEO Mike Wilson said the board’s independent directors spent two months evaluating Jana’s ideas with its independent financial adviser, Morgan Stanley, before unanimously deciding the retail spinoff was a bad idea.“The facts are straightforward. Agrium remains committed to its highly successful integrated strategy,” Wilson said.“Jana has been trying for over six months to obtain support for its idea that Agrium should spin off or sell its retail operations. Agrium’s shareholders have overwhelmingly rejected Jana’s ideas. As a result, we believe Jana’s attempt to run its own slate for Agrium’s board is almost certain to fail.”A source familiar with Jana’s thinking said the fund has not decided which of Agrium’s 11 board members it’s looking to replace, but it will probably “lean heavily” on the group Agrium has previously cited as having adequate distribution experience.Most of Jana’s nominees are American and it wants to make sure enough Canadians remain on the board, “so you can also assume that Americans will probably be more targeted heavily,” the source said.When it comes to replacing Wilson as CEO, the source said Jana hasn’t “gone there” and “that would obviously be a significant escalation.”In its more than decade-long history, all of Jana’s campaigns have been resolved with management before coming to a shareholder vote.“Maybe this will be the first,” the source said. “We’ll see.”Jana has said the retail spinoff, and a better focus on cost management and capital allocation, could add $50 to Agrium’s share price.Recently Agrium has bumped up its dividend and bought back $900 million in stock — moves Jana has applauded.Jana’s statement on Monday accused the current Agrium board of failing to address it’s criticism. It also accused Agrium of failing to keep shareholders informed — particularly about the weakness of its third-quarter financial results, which generally missed analyst expectations.Besides Vanclief and Rosenstein, Jana is proposing David Bullock — a former chief operating officer of United Agri Products, which was acquired by Agrium several years ago; Stephen Clark, a former CEO of Brenntag North America, and Mitchell Jacobson, chairman and a shareholder of MSC Industrial Direct Co. Inc. (NYSE:MSM).Agrium shares rose about two per cent to $99.95 in afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange. read more

Bangladeshi troops shift from UN mission in Sierra Leone to Liberia

The movement of the Bangladeshi troops – at the end of their one-year tour with the UN Mission in Sierra Leone (UNAMSIL) – is part of the Security Council’s decision to establish a mission for war-shattered Liberia consisting of up to 15,000 military personnel and up to 1,115 civilian police officers. Some 3,500 West African soldiers have already been put under command of the UN Mission in Liberia (UNMIL). The newly augmented force is mandated to monitor an agreement signed between rebel groups and the government last August.The spokesman, Fred Eckhard, also said the UN Force Commander for Liberia, Lt. Gen. Daniel Opande, yesterday held a meeting with the leader of the Liberians United for Democracy (LURD), Sekou Damate Conneh who, Mr. Eckhard said, reiterated that the LURD is committed to the ceasefire accord.Mr. Conneh also said he instructed his commanders to comply with an agreement reached on Monday to make the area around the capital Monrovia weapons-free within 72 hours, Mr. Eckhard added.In Monrovia, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Liberia, Jacques Klein, asked traditional chiefs from Liberia’s 15 counties for assistance in keeping the peace.”I will need your help – before us is the most difficult challenge of our collective lives,” Mr. Klein said. “I hope you will assist me in this mission to restore peace and stability of this land. It cannot be done without you. You are Liberia. You are its traditional leaders. You are its living tradition, a tradition older than the State itself.”In New York, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) reported that the UN World Food Programme (WFP) had resumed food distribution to several camps. The assistance had been suspended 1 October due to clashes between LURD and government militias.While OCHA and several interagency groups have been continuing aid, and scouting new areas, other, non-essential aid activities in some areas have been put on hold for fear of new clashes, a spokesperson for the Office said. read more

UN and partners aiding unprecedented flow of refugees from Myanmar

‹ › Meanwhile, emergency relief supplies are being airlifted to Bangladesh today, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said. “A UNHCR-chartered Boeing 777 flew in with 91 metric tonnes of aid,” spokesperson Adrian Edwards told the press, detailing a list that includes shelter material, jerry cans, blankets, sleeping mats and other essential items for 25,000 refugees. A second flight is scheduled to land later today with some 1,700 family tents, with more aid to be delivered shortly. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) has already provided some 68,800 people with high-energy biscuits, including to women-friendly spaces supported by the UN Population Fund (UNFPA), and some 77,600 people with warm meals, working through a local partner. UN and aid partners have launched an emergency appeal for Rohingya refugees, calling for $77 million to cover the next three months. About 370,000 people have crossed the Bangladeshi border in the last two and a half weeks, according to the UN’s International Organization for Migration (IOM). “UN agencies and the Government were expecting the possibility that as many as 100,000 more people could come across when there were already 600,000 Rohingyas in Bangladesh. But I don’t think anyone expected a mass exodus like this, unprecedented in terms of value and speed,” said IOM Asia-Pacific Spokesperson Chris Lom, speaking with UN News from Cox’s Bazar, a thin stretch of beach in south-eastern Bangladesh. Mr. Lom, who is one of the UN aid workers on the ground, said the people he spoke with are “very vulnerable, traumatized.” There are “hundreds of people virtually camped out anywhere there is space. Any spare muddy piece of land or on hillside,” he said, calling for a coordinated, emergency response that is fully funded by the international community to avert a humanitarian crisis. About 60 per cent of the Rohingya refugees – some 200,000 – are children, according to Jean Lieby, Chief of Child Protection at the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in Bangladesh, who is also in Cox’s Bazar. “The first thing you see here in the different Rohingya camps is the large number of children. You see children who have not slept for days, they are weak and hungry,” she told journalists in Geneva by phone. A UN Migration Agency (IOM) mobile medical provides healthcare to the new arrivals where around 27,000 people received service from IOM healthcare facilities in the first 12 days of the influx.

But Spain’s Constitutional Court had ruled the vote illegal.In all, the motion declaring independence was approved with 70 in favour, 10 against and two abstentions in the 135-seat chamber.Immediately afterwards, Mr Rajoy called for all Spaniards to remain calm, promising to “restore legality” to Catalonia.Spain’s Senate is still to vote on whether for the first time to enact Article 155 of the Spanish constitution, which empowers the government to take “all measures necessary to compel” a region in case of a crisis.It would enable Madrid to fire Catalan leaders, and take control of the region’s finances, police and public media. read more

It recently announced the establishment of a new Dublin headquarters and the recruitment of another 200 staff.A Microsoft statement said the job cuts are part of “a restructuring plan to simplify its operations and align the recently acquired Nokia Devices and Services business with the company’s overall strategy.”The company’s employee headcount rose from around 99,000 before the Nokia deal to around 127,000 last month; the cuts represent a 14% drop in the company’s workforce.It also said it anticipates charges of $1.1 billion to $1.6 billion over the next four quarters, which includes $750 million to $800 million for severance and related benefit costs.The company is not providing a by-country breakdown of where the cuts will be allocated, but in an email to staff, Microsoft Chief Executive Satya Nadella said that, of the 18,000 jobs being cut, “our work toward synergies and strategic alignment on Nokia Devices and Services is expected to account for about 12,500 jobs, comprising both professional and factory workers.”last_img read more

Mo Salahs scoring form doesnt bother me Klopp

They talk about this, and now he scored last week two goals, but before that, he was, ‘Not even half he was last year,’ that is what people were saying, stuff like that.“For us, it is completely cool. If the player is not happy with it – that is clear. If you have a chance, you want to score.“It is completely normal, all good.

With no timetable on when 737 Max will fly again Boeing may

first_img Aviation Boeing How the first 737 evolved into the Max US Tech Policy Tags Boeing CEO: 737 Max soon to be one of the safest planes Boeing details fixes to get 737 Max flying again Boeing completes test flights for 737 Max software fix Boeing CEO defends 737 Max flight control system 32 Photos After two deadly crashes of its 737 Max 8 that killed 346 people, Boeing is facing massive scrutiny over one of its newest and most critical aircraft models. The airliner remains grounded around the world, and Congress, the FBI and the Trump administration have called for an inquiry into the FAA’s certification process.The developments are a huge blow to Boeing, which has thousands of 737 Max orders on its books. The official causes of the crashes, which appear to be similar, are still under study. But so far, investigation teams in Indonesia and Ethiopia are focusing on faulty sensors and a flight control system designed to push the nose down in the air. Boeing says it has completed the necessary update for review by the FAA. But as of now, the agency has not said when that review will happen and Boeing may temporarily stop production of the plane until it flies again.Until the Max is back in the air, here’s everything else we know:What happened in the most recent crash?On March 10, Ethiopian Airlines flight 302 departed Addis Ababa Bole International Airport bound for Nairobi, Kenya. Just after takeoff, the pilot radioed a distress call and was given immediate clearance to return and land. But before the crew could make it back, the aircraft crashed 40 miles from the airport at 8:44 a.m., six minutes after it left the runway. Aboard were 149 passengers and eight crew members representing more than 30 nationalities. The aircraft involved was only four months old. What was the previous crash?On Oct. 29, Lion Air flight 610 crashed in the Java Sea 13 minutes after takeoff from Jakarta, Indonesia, killing 189 people. As with the Ethiopian crash, the flight crew lost control early in its flight and made a distress call. That aircraft was almost brand-new as well, having arrived at Lion Air three months earlier. The 737 Max 9, shown here at the 2016 Paris Air Show, is a larger version of the Max 8, but with the same piloting system that’s under investigation. Kent German/CNET What is the Boeing 737 Max 8?One of Boeing’s newest airliners, the 737 Max 8 made its first flight on Jan. 29, 2016, and entered passenger service with Malaysia’s (now defunct) Malindo Air on May 22, 2017. Seating between 162 and 210 passengers, depending on the configuration, it’s popular on shorter routes, but also has the range (3,550 nautical miles or about 4,085 miles) to fly transatlantic and between the mainland US and Hawaii. The design of the Max 8 is based on the Boeing 737, an aircraft series that has been in service since 1968. As a whole, the 737 family is the best-selling airliner in history. At any given time, thousands of some version of it are airborne around the world and some airlines, like Southwest and Ryanair, have all-737 fleets. If you’ve flown even occasionally, you’ve most likely flown on a 737. What does this mean for the FAA?The agency is under fire on multiple fronts over the crashes. Congress, the FBI and Secretary of Transportation Elaine Chao have called for investigations of the FAA’s certification process. Under scrutiny is whether Boeing employees acted on behalf of the FAA during the certification process and whether pilots flying the 737 Max should have received additional training. The Justice Department’s criminal division also is investigating the airplane, The Washington Post reported.What has to happen before the Max can fly again?First off, investigators need to agree on a cause for both crashes. Second, once Boeing deploys the relevant fixes, the FAA needs to certify them as safe and airlines need to implement them. There’s no telling how long that’ll take. On April 18, Muilenburg said the company was making “steady progress to certification” after 135 test flights. Then on May 16, Boeing said the update is complete and ready for evaluation by the FAA. Even with the grounding order, Boeing is permitted to conduct test flights. But that’s just in the United States. Aviation regulatory agencies around the world, like the European Aviation Safety Agency, also need to approve the fix before they’ll let the Max fly to the countries they oversee. Traditionally, they’ve followed the FAA’s lead on such matters, but there’s no guarantee they will. On June 28, the FAA and regulatory officials from Canada, Europe and Brazil agreed in principle to work together to review Boeing’s changes to the Max and restore the aircraft to service. There’s no word, though, on when that might happen. And there appear to be other problems with the airliner. On June 26, the FAA announced it had discovered a new computer issue that could adversely affect how fast a pilot could respond to an MCAS-related event like the ones suspected in the Lion Air and Ethiopian crashes. The same day, Boeing said it would fix the problem. Will pilots have to train in a simulator before they can fly the Max again?When the Max first introduced, existing 737 pilots didn’t train on a simulator in order to be certified to fly the plane. Instead, they learned about the differences the Max brought through an hour’s worth of iPad-based training. As I mentioned earlier, that training did not include a review of the MCAS system.After Boeing announced it was ready to deploy the MCAS software update, the FAA initially said that simulator training still wouldn’t be required. But some pilots and regulatory officials from other countries, like Canadian Transport Minister Marc Garneau, have disagreed with that decision. They won an influential supporter on June 19 when “Miracle on the Hudson” Capt. Chesley B. “Sully” Sullenberger argued before a Congressional committee that simulator training should be required before pilots take the Max back into the air. He also said the original design of MCAS was “fatally flawed and should never have been approved.”boeing-737-max-test-flightA Boeing 737 Max 7 lands at Boeing Field in Seattle after a test flight to evaluate the MCAS software fix. Paul Christian Gordon/Boeing Are airplanes now too complicated?On March 12, Trump tweeted that airplanes are “becoming far too complex to fly.” The reality isn’t quite that simple. Commercial airliners have used automated systems for decades (that’s what an automatic pilot is). The Lockheed L-1011, introduced in 1972, could land itself. Most airliners flying today also are “fly-by-wire,” meaning that a pilot’s commands are carried as electronic signals (rather than over hydraulic lines) to an aircraft’s control services. Flight computers also continually stabilize an aircraft during flight without input from the flight crew. Boeing and Airbus have different philosophies for this interaction, but explaining those could take a book.So, the basic concept of MCAS is nothing new. But crews need to be properly trained to use automated systems, recognize when they may be at fault, and override them if necessary. As the initial reports have indicated, a lack of training about MCAS may have contributed to the Max 8 crashes. Airline pilots are thoroughly trained to fly an aircraft under extraordinary circumstances, but they need accurate information about factors like airspeed and altitude to be able to make quick decisions in an emergency.Has a commercial aircraft been grounded before?Yes. In the most recent example, the FAA grounded the Boeing 787 for three months in 2013 after a series of nonfatal battery fires. Before that, the FAA grounded the Douglas DC-10 for a month in 1979 after a crash near Chicago O’Hare Airport killed 271 people on board, plus two on the ground. (Outside of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, that remains the deadliest airplane crash on US soil.) The Chicago crash was ultimately attributed to improper maintenance. The crash of a DC-10 in 1974 in France, killing 346 people, was caused by a design flaw on a cargo hold door latch. Outside the US, both Qantas and Singapore Airlines voluntarily grounded their Airbus A380s for a couple of days after a Qantas flight from Singapore to Sydney in 2010 had an uncontained engine failure. How important is the Max series to Boeing?Hugely important. The market for 150- to 200-seat aircraft is fiercely competitive. Airbus, Boeing’s perennial archrival, sells the similarly sized A320neo, and China is seeking customers for its new Comac C919. As of May 31, Boeing had almost 5,000 firm 737 Max orders. Boeing says the 737 Max is the fastest-selling airplane in its history. But two crashes in five months is a troubling record for a plane that entered service barely two years ago, and airlines will have to reassure passengers the planes are safe. As of May 31, Boeing has delivered 387 Max aircraft to more than 50 airlines. Currently the three largest customers (in order) are Southwest Airlines, American Airlines and Air Canada. Following the second crash, airlines stopped ordering the aircraft. But on June 18 at the Paris Air Show, International Airlines Group said it would consider buying  200 737 Max 8s and 10s. Though the IAG promise may never translate to actual orders, it was still a big and unexpected boost for Boeing. But then on July 24, during the company’s second-quarter earnings call, Muilenburg said the company may temporarily shutdown Max production until it can return it to service. For the quarter, Boeing reported a $2.9 million loss due to the airliner’s grounding. The news has touched Boeing’s other aircraft as well. As a result of the latest crash, Boeing postponed the rollout of its newest aircraft, the 777X. Instead of the usual media event, Boeing instead held a low-key introduction for the 777X, attended only by its employees. 2:09 How has Boeing responded?On Nov. 6, Boeing issued a safety warning advising 737 Max operators of the potential for a sensor failure and instructing them how to deactivate MCAS. But two days later, The Seattle Times reported that Max 8 pilots were not specifically trained on using MCAS. The reason? According to The New York Times, it was because Boeing, backed by the FAA, wanted to minimize the cost and time of certifying pilots who had already been trained on other 737 versions. An investigation by The Dallas Morning News found that several Max 8 pilots had complained about the inadequate training. Following the second crash, the company expressed sympathy for the victims’ families and said it was sending an investigation team. Then on March 13, the company said it supported the action the US grounding order.  Originally published March 13.Updates, March 13: Adds Trump’s order and Boeing’s statement about it.

That list includes both Ethiopian Airlines and Lion Air, but also AeroMexico, Aerolíneas Argentinas, GOL Linhas Aéreas (Brazil), Turkish Airlines, S7 Airlines (Russia), FlyDubai, Air Italy, Cayman Airways, Norwegian, China Eastern Airlines, Fiji Airways and Royal Air Maroc.More than 40 countries have also banned the 737 Max from flying in their airspace. China (a huge Boeing customer and a fast-growing commercial aviation market) led the way and was joined by Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Australia, India, Oman, the European Union and Singapore, Canada initially hesitated, but soon reversed course.Up until March 13, the FAA also declined to issue a grounding order, saying in a statement tweeted the previous day that there is “no basis to order grounding the aircraft.” That was despite a public outcry from a group of senators and two flight attendant unions. But following President Trump’s decision to ground the Max that day, the agency cited new evidence it had collected and analyzed. Trump also grounded the 737 Max 9, currently in service with United Airlines.Older 737 models, like the 737-700, 737-800 and 737-900 don’t use the flight control system under investigation and aren’t affected.  59 Photos 18 Photos See All Aug 6 • Trump says he’s watching Google ‘very closely,’ slams CEO Sundar Pichai Climb on board Boeing’s new 737 Max 9 reading • With no timetable on when 737 Max will fly again, Boeing may suspend production A 747 story: The history of the jumbo jet • Aug 6 • President Trump wants social media to catch shooters before they strike.

It also can fly farther and carry more people than the previous generation of 737s, like the 737-800 and 737-900. The 737 Max series consists of four models, of which the Max 8 is the most popular. The larger Max 9 has been flying only for a few months and the 737-10 is still in development and has yet to fly. A few airlines have ordered the smaller 737 Max 7, but Boeing has yet to complete any deliveries. (It flew for the first time in May, 2018.)paris-airshow-onboard-boeing-787-10-737-max-36Compared with previous versions of the 737, the Max’s engines sit farther forward and higher up on the underwing pylons. Andrew Hoyle/CNET What caused the crashes?The complete reports haven’t been published yet. Crash investigations are tremendously complex — it takes months to evaluate the evidence and determine a probable cause. Investigators must examine the debris, study the flight recorders and, if possible, check the victims’ bodies to determine the cause of death. They also involve multiple parties including the airline, the airplane and engine manufacturers and aviation regulatory agencies.There are important clues so far. Remember those larger CFM LEAP engines? Well, because they’re bigger, and because the 737 sits so low to the ground (a deliberate design choice to let it serve small airports with limited ground equipment), Boeing moved the engines slightly forward and raised them higher under the wing. (If you place an engine too close to the ground, it can suck in debris while the plane is taxiing.) That change allowed Boeing to accommodate the engines without completely redesigning the 737 fuselage — a fuselage that hasn’t changed much in 50 years.But the new position changed how the aircraft handled in the air, creating the potential for the nose to pitch up during flight. A pitched nose is a problem in flight — raise it too high and an aircraft can stall. To keep the nose in trim, Boeing designed software called the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS. When a sensor on the fuselage detects that the nose is too high, MCAS automatically pushes the nose down.boeing-737-max-all-versionsOf the four 747 Max versions, only the Max 10 has yet to fly. Boeing Investigators in the Lion Air crash have said that a fault in the sensor may have been feeding incorrect data to MCAS, pitching the nose down into a dive. According to the preliminary report (PDF) from the Indonesian National Transportation Safety Committee, the Lion Air pilots were unable to determine their true airspeed and altitude and they struggled to take control of the plane before the crash, as it oscillated for 10 minutes. Each time they pulled up from a dive, the system pushed the nose down again. (For background on MCAS, read these in-depth stories from The Air Current and The Seattle Times.) The report also noted that maintenance crews had replaced the faulty sensor two days before the flight and that pilots on the four flights preceding the crash reported incorrect airspeed and altitude information (a passenger likened one of those flights to a “roller coaster ride”). And like with the Lion Air crash, the sensor on the Ethiopian plane may have been damaged causing it to feed erroneous data to the MCAS system.On April 29, during Boeing’s annual shareholders meeting in Chicago, CEO Dennis Muilenburg said the incorrect data was a common link in a chain of events that led to both crashes. It’s a link Boeing owns, he said, and one that the software update will fix.Boeing 737-100The original version of the 737 first flew in 1967. Boeing Would the pilots have known about the faults?The Air Current and The New York Times reported that the Lion Air plane also lacked a warning light designed to alert pilots to the faulty sensor and that Boeing sold the light as part of an optional package of equipment. When asked about the warning light, a Boeing spokesman gave CNET the following statement on March 22:”All Boeing airplanes are certified and delivered to the highest levels of safety consistent with industry standards. Airplanes are delivered with a baseline configuration, which includes a standard set of flight deck displays and alerts, crew procedures and training materials that meet industry safety norms and most customer requirements. Customers may choose additional options, such as alerts and indications, to customize their airplanes to support their individual operations or requirements.”But on April 29, The Wall Street Journal reported that even for airlines that had ordered it, the warning light wasn’t operating on some Max planes that had been delivered. Then on June 7, Reps. Peter DeFazio, a Democrat from Oregon, and Rick Larsen, a Democrat from Washington, said they’d obtained information suggesting that even though the plane maker knew the safety alert wasn’t working, it decided to wait until 2020 to implement a fix. Boeing responded to DeFazio and Larsen in a statement sent to CNET the same day.”The absence of the AOA Disagree alert did not adversely impact airplane safety or operation,” the statement read. “Based on the safety review, the update was scheduled for the MAX 10 rollout in 2020. We fell short in the implementation of the AoA Disagree alert and are taking steps to address these issues so they do not occur again.”Etihad 777 flightThe previous model, the 737-900ER, doesn’t have the MCAS flight control system. Boeing/Ed Turner Are the two crashes related?It appears they are. Investigators in France are still examining the flight recorder (the “black box”) from the second crash, but Ethiopia’s Transport Minister said on March 18 that two crashes have “clear similarities.” Though he didn’t elaborate, satellite data released March 14 showed that the final flight track of the Ethiopian Airlines jet was similar to that of the Lion Air plane. The FAA cited that data in its grounding order.Investigators at both crash sites have also recovered the jack screws, which manipulate the control surfaces on the horizontal stabilizer that pitch the nose up and down. Both jack screws were set to send the planes into a dive.Do we know anything else about the Ethiopian crash?According to the preliminary report released on April 4, the flight crew initially followed Boeing’s emergency procedures to disable MCAS by cutting electrical power. For unknown reasons, though, they later turned the system back on as many as four times after they were unable to regain control under manual power. During his remarks at the April 29 shareholder meeting, Muilenburg said that in some cases pilots did not “completely” follow the procedures that Boeing had outlined to prevent a crash in the case of an MCAS malfunction. “There is no greater priority for our company and our industry,” the statement said. “We are doing everything we can to understand the cause of the accidents in partnership with the investigators, deploy safety enhancements and help ensure this does not happen again.”As is common after a crash, Boeing has not commented on specific aspects of the investigation, but on March 11, the company said it would issue a software update that would include changes to MCAS, pilot displays, operation manuals and crew training.But even that timeline is in question. The Wall Street Journal reported March 12 that an MCAS update could have come in January before the second crash. The newspaper says it was delayed, however, by the 35-day US government shutdown earlier this year. Dennis Muilenburg, Boeing’s chairman, president and CEO also published a letter April 4 expressing confidence in the fundamental safety of the 737 MAX. “All who fly on it — the passengers, flight attendants and pilots, including our own families and friends — deserve our best,” he wrote. “When the MAX returns to the skies with the software changes to the MCAS function, it will be among the safest airplanes ever to fly.”On July 3 Boeing announced it will pay $100 million over several years to families of the crash victims and the communities affected by the disasters. These funds will support things like education, hardship and living expenses for impacted families and will be separate from any legal settlements.

Mortgage Originations Spiked by Positive National Credit Data

first_img Mortgage originations in the housing market rose significantly over the last year thanks to the positive overall credit picture in the U.S., along with a rise in the national VantageScore credit score.New data from Experian’s State of Credit study showed that mortgage originations increased by 42.5 percent over the last year. The national VantageScore rose three points from 666 to 669 over the past year and is up by five point since 2013.“If I were to give a grade to the overall picture of credit in the United States, I would give it an A minus,” said Michele Raneri, VP of analytics and new business development, Experian. “I’m optimistic about the state of credit as we are seeing more loans being extended, late payments are decreasing and consumers are continuing to gain more confidence in originating loans.”According to the Experian data, the state of Minnesota has the highest average credit score, with three of its cities (Mankato, Rochester, and Minneapolis) occupying the top three spots with average scores of 706, 705, and 704, respectively.The Experian report found that the top 10 cities with the highest credit scores experienced a 1.8-point increase in their scores.On the other end of the spectrum, Greenwood, Mississippi has the lowest average credit score at 612, followed by Albany, Georgia and Riverside, California with average scores of 622 and 624, respectively.“There definitely is growth and momentum—we’re back to pre-recession levels in nearly every category, which means lenders are in a prime position to capitalize on this market and foster business growth,” Raneri noted.Earlier this month, purchase mortgage originations rose significantly in 2015, driven by high-credit borrowers, according to Black Knight Financial Services’ latest Mortgage Monitor Report.The data showed that purchase loans increased 11 percent year-over-year in the third quarter, while purchase originations were 15 percent higher in the second quarter of 2015 compared to the prior year. In addition, in June 2015, purchase lending reached its highest point since June 2007.“The increase in purchase originations is being driven entirely by high-credit borrowers,” the report stated.Meanwhile, only 20 percent of purchase loans in the past three months have gone to borrowers with a <700 credit score, the lowest level in over 10 years.Click here to view Experian's complete report.

1 What do you do at Skyscanner I make sure t

first_img**1. What do you do at Skyscanner?**I make sure that the prices we display on our site are as fresh and accurate as possible.2. What kind of flight geek are you? Learning geek. Whether it’s a new technology, language or a guitar riff, I’ll spend hours trying to master it.3. What best generally describes your travel style? I usually know where I want to go, and I’m more flexible on the “when” part.4. What’s your ideal holiday?I like to keep a balance between seeing as many interesting places as possible and relaxing on the beach/by the pool. I usually end up visiting all the places around worth seeing, yet it is always great to be able to relax a bit too, so after a day or two of sightseeing I can sunbathe for hours.5. Who’s your ideal travel companion? I love travelling with my wife, Monika, but for a less probable partner I would probably pick Derek Parfit and chat about his views on personal identity.6. Do you fly with children?Well, there’s usually some kids on the plane. But not mine, not yet anyway.7. How do you decide where you want to go?There’s a few places that I dream of visiting (for example: The Maldives, New Zealand and maybe Japan) so we keep a shortlist and decide if this year is the year to go or not. We then use the internet to verify and specify our selections, and visit Skyscanner to find the best deals.8. How do you decide when you want to go?Normally it depends on our holidays and other travel plans – we try to spread our longer holidays and visits to our home town evenly throughout the year. We also like to spend our wedding anniversary somewhere interesting each year.9. What annoys you most about planning holidays?I’m actually quite keen on planning trips, and with Skyscanner becoming a one-stop-shop for travelling it’s getting even easier now. But for the finer details like airport transfers or specific excursions, I’ll wait until we get there.10. What are you doing in your job at Skyscanner to help? I’m a user of the site myself, so I know that accurate prices are the key to success. My team and I also try to enable our users to redirect to pre-populated partner websites – select the dates, routes and currency just once and let us handle the rest!11. What’s your favourite thing about the Skyscanner site?Knowing the actual complexities that sit under the hood. There are hundreds of airlines and providers and thousands of routes, which are all aggregated to let our users find exactly what they need in seconds.12. What’s your dream feature?It would probably be keyword-driven free text search. I would enter “sunny beaches and ancient monuments in May” and Skyscanner would find my dream holiday.13. Favourite websites apart from Skyscanner and why?For my geeky needs, I love the w3schools website which has everything you need to know about web programming, the standardized way. I also love the xkcd web comic, which touches on a lot of my hobbies: humour, IT and science, some philosophy and lots of interesting references.14. What’s the geekiest thing about you? Your secret geek shame?I’m quietly planning to take over the world with the game me and my friend from Skyscanner are writing now. I’m not sure though if we can fit any planes between all the mystical creatures.15. Worst travel experience?Waiting for hours in a bus near the airport only to find out that our plane was being used to pick up XL Airways passengers on the other side of Europe in the aftermath of that airline’s bankruptcy, would be high on the list. Yet it’s nothing compared to an ear infection at 10000 meters above the ground. My advice would be: don’t fly on the same day you went diving; you might end up with a really sore head.Meet more Flight Search GeeksReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Introducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work RelatedFlight Geek of the Week – Laura WilsonFlight Geek of the Week – Laura WilsonFlight Geek of the Week – Andrew PhillipsFlight Geek of the Week – Andrew PhillipsFlight Geek of the Week – Joe SarreIntroducing the flight search geeks that make Skyscanner work.last_img read more
