NEW YORK -- US regulators said Wednesday Boeing must address a new "potential risk" in the Boeing 737 MAX, further clouding the timeframe for resuming service on the planes after 2 deadly crashes. The issue, which surfaced during FAA simulator testing, concerns the ability of pilots to quickly reassert control of the plane if an automated flight handling system pushes the plane downward, said a person familiar with the matter. The Federal Aviation Administration "will lift the aircraft's prohibition order when we deem it is safe to do so," the agency said in an email. "The FAA recently found a potential risk that Boeing must mitigate." Boeing said the software fix for the 737 MAX that it has been developing for the last eight months does not currently address the matter. "The Boeing Company agrees with the FAA's decision and request and is working on the required software to address the FAA's request," Boeing said in a securities filing. "Boeing will not offer the 737 MAX for … [Read more...] about US FAA: Boeing must address new issue on 737 MAX

By Kate Carraway Special to the Star Mon., May 13, 2019 My husband, who works in the relatively stiff realm of finance, recently forwarded me an email chain between himself and some colleagues. Their messages were short, specific, and direct. No one apologized for anything. This was an email chain without any paragraphs, with only one exclamation mark, following the terminal “Thanks” (!), and without any… emotions. I loved it. It’s not often you get to wander into a magical reality so completely different than your own, and even less often that the experience comes in the form of an email you originally mistook for something sent directly, intentionally, to you. As a person in a creative field dominated by women — and as an overshare-y, feelings-y person, who communicates with and on a probably too-high frequency— my emails, are a meadow of adjectives and exclamations, with bowers of all-caps, and the occasional emoji … [Read more...] about What should we do about email?
