A person with knowledge of the matter told AFP that American Airlines planned to continue operating flights aboard the company’s two dozen 737 MAX 8s as scheduled. And Canadian officials said they would not ground the three aircraft in use by the country’s airlines.”We remain confident in the safety and airworthiness of our fleet of more than 750 Boeing aircraft,” said a spokesman for Southwest Airlines, which operates a fleet of 34 737 MAX 8 aircraft.Grounding the 737 MAX 8 would be a major setback for Boeing. The aircraft is a key profit driver, with 350 currently in service. Following Sunday’s crash in Ethiopia of another Boeing 737 MAX 8, the second accident in five months, the flagship US manufacturer faces fresh questions about the planes’ airworthiness. American officials face difficulty in reassuring the flying public.

Women mourn during a memorial ceremony in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia on Monday March 11, 2019 Boeing 737 MAX deliveries by company and region But are US authorities likely to ground these planes, a cash cow for the aerospace giant?American officials face a difficult task in reassuring the flying public, as passengers take to social media, saying they are afraid to board a 737.The Federal Aviation Administration said it has a team on-site working with investigators on the cause of the crash, and pledged to take “immediate” action if it finds any issues with the aircraft.In addition to the FAA, the US National Transportation Safety Board and Boeing all have sent officials to Ethiopia to help investigate.The cause of the crash remains unknown but the airline says investigators have recovered the black box flight recorders from the Nairobi-bound jet.”We don’t know anything for certain about this crash at this point but you certainly can’t rule out a grounding,” said Richard Aboulafia of Teal Group, an aerospace consultancy.China, Indonesia and Ethiopian Airlines have set a precedent by grounding the planes themselves, he added.But he said US authorities must not yield to political pressure despite Boeing’s economic importance as an exporter. “For the good of the system, and for the good of the industry in the long run, safety decisions are best left to professionals concerned solely with safety. Politicizing safety is not a good idea,” he said. A 737 MAX 8 operating as Ethiopian Airlines Flight ET302 crashed Sunday southeast of Addis Ababa shortly after takeoff, killing all 157 passengers and crew members aboard.The same model—a more fuel-efficient version of the 737—crashed in late October in Indonesia during a flight operated by Lion Air, leaving 189 people dead, also just moments after takeoff.Not since the 1970s—when the McDonnell Douglas DC-10 had successive fatal incidents—has a new model been involved in two deadly accidents in such a short period.The causes of the crashes are not yet known but the planes’ Angle of Attack sensors, which provide data about the angle at which air passes over the wings, have come under scrutiny. The economic fallout from grounding would great as Boeing employs more than 150,000 people in the United States When US authorities grounded the Boeing 787 six years ago due to problems with its batteries, only 50 were in operation.The economic fallout would be even greater as Boeing employs more than 150,000 people in the United States, with assembly plants in South Carolina and the state of Washington.As of Friday, it accounted for 11.3 percent of the benchmark Wall Street stock index, the Dow Jones Industrial Average.This year, Boeing also plans to increase the production rate for the 737 MAX to 57 aircraft per month from 52, in order fill 4,661 orders by January.”Boeing is strategic, it’s a tool of trade,” said Michel Merluzeau, an analyst at AirInsight.The 737 MAX also figures in the fraught current US-China trade talks, with American officials urging Beijing to purchase more of the jets and cut America’s soaring trade deficit with China, according to media reports.In this context, China’s decision to ground the 737 MAX is not necessarily related to security concerns, Merluzeau said.In addition to commercial airliners, Boeing also manufactures military aircraft, including the KC-46 Pegasus aerial refueling jet, and is a contractor in US space programs. © 2019 AFP Citation: Grounding the Boeing 737 a touchy subject for US authorities (2019, March 11) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2019-03-grounding-boeing-touchy-subject-authorities.html This document is subject to copyright.

first_imgA monstrously huge goldfish was recently captured in the Niagara River in New York. The goldfish was presumably a discarded house pet that may have been illegally released or survived a traumatic flush down a toilet. Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper (BNW), a nonprofit working to protect and restore the Niagara River and Lake Erie watershed, caught and photographed the giant goldfish in the river’s Black Rock Canal, sharing an image in a Facebook post on June 14. [In Photos: Thousands of Goldfish Swarm in Colorado Lake] In the photo, Marcus Rosten, an employee of the nonprofit, cradles the fish in two hands; the orange leviathan measured a whopping 14 inches (36 centimeters) long, according to the post.Headbutting Tiny Worms Are Really, Really LoudThis rapid strike produces a loud ‘pop’ comparable to those made by snapping shrimps, one of the most intense biological sounds measured at sea.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Why Is It ‘Snowing’ Salt in the Dead Sea?01:53 facebook twitter 发邮件 reddit 链接https://www.livescience.com/65770-giant-goldfish-in-river.html?jwsource=cl已复制直播00:0000:3500:35  An even more supersized goldfish was nabbed in California’s Lake Tahoe in 2013; it weighed in at just over 4 lbs. (2 kilograms) and measured nearly 2 feet (61 cm) long. Goldfish (Carassius auratus auratus) are native to eastern Asia and belong to the carp family. They usually reach about 1 to 2 inches (3 to 5 cm) in length when they live in aquariums or small fish tanks; at most, they grow to about 6 inches (15 cm) in captivity, according to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC). But when goldfish are released into streams and rivers, they often grow to be 12 to 14 inches (31 to 36 cm) long. The first sightings of goldfish in New York waterways date to 1842; more than a dozen other states also noted the appearance of goldfish in rivers and streams by the end of the 19th century, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. Today, goldfish can be found in waterways across New York State, “the result of illegally released pets or escapees from bait buckets,” the DEC reported. The fish can survive year-round in the Lake Erie watershed, and goldfish reproduce very quickly; a handful of goldfish released into a Colorado lake in 2012 multiplied to number in the thousands just three years later. Invasive goldfish directly compete with native fish, and in large numbers, they upset the natural biodiversity of vulnerable freshwater environments, a BNW representative told Live Science in an email. “Aquatic invasive species that don’t naturally belong in the Great Lakes, like this goldfish, are a constant threat to the health of native wildlife populations and their habitats,” the representative said. Across all of the Great Lakes, goldfish populations are estimated to run into the tens of millions, the BNW posted on Facebook.

Arunachal Pradesh Published on SHARE SHARE EMAIL earthquake April 24, 2019 A medium-intensity earthquake shook Arunachal Pradesh early on Wednesday.There were no reports of any damage to property or casualties in the quake that occurred at 1:45 a.m.While the IMD said the quake measured about 5.9, the United States Geological Survey pegged it at 6.1.The epicentre of the quake was about 40 kilometres southeast of Along, and 180 kilometres southwest of the state capital Itanagar.State Director General of Police S V K Singh, who himself was awakened by the temblor, said he contacted the superintendents of police of all districts but no damage was reported from anywhere.The districts extend from areas bordering Bhutan, Tibet and Myanmar, he said.“Though people panicked there are no reports of any damage,” he said.Prof Trilochan Singh, who served as a geologist of Wadia Institute of Himalayan Geology for decades, described it as “shallow earthquake”, considered dangerous for its impact within a radius of 40-50 km.Mild earthquakes often occur in this Himalayan state, located in seismic zone 5, Singh said.The earthquake zoning map of India divides the country into 4 seismic zones (Zone 2, 3, 4 and 5) unlike its previous version, which consisted of five or six zones.According to the present zoning map, Zone 5 expects the highest level of seismicity whereas Zone 2 is associated with its lowest level.A strong 6.3-magnitude earthquake also struck Tibet close to India early Wednesday, authorities said.There were no immediate reports of casualties.The quake, which struck at 4:15 a.m., jolted Medog county in Nyingchi city which is located close to Arunachal Pradesh.
