What Really Brought Down the Boeing 737 Max? Sections Skip to content Skip to site index Feature Malfunctions caused two deadly crashes. But an industry that puts unprepared pilots in the cockpit is just as guilty.

(Getty Images) LONDON — An advertisement for cream cheese showing distracted dads leaving babies on a conveyer belt was banned by Britain’s ad regulator Wednesday under new rules against harmful gender stereotypes. The Advertising Standards Authority said the ad for Philadelphia cream cheese “relied on the stereotype that men were unable to care for children as well as women and implied that the fathers had failed to look after the children properly because of their gender.” Parent company Mondelez U.K. argued that the ad shows a positive image of men taking a responsible and active role in child care.

When I met my fiancé, he told me to get my dive certification and that he was taking me to the Seychelles. On my second licensed dive, I ended up in the south channel of Aldabra, the world's second largest coral atoll, in a high-speed drift dive akin to a Formula One race. Holding onto my breath for dear life, flying past an oceanscape that was nothing short of a mermaid's wonderland... I was hooked. Breath, movement, quiet—peace within the turmoil—and a world that was so dense, so unfamiliar, and so beautiful. A sea turtle that I bumped into looked me in the eyes, then seemed to glance toward the surface and ask: "Why would you ever go back? You know, up there." Why, indeed? As I continued to explore the world's ocean, I quickly realized that I had been completely spoiled on that early dive in Aldabra. It's clear that the health of our oceans is challenged. But all is not lost. There's a global goal amongst many NGO's and affiliated efforts of protecting 30% of the … [Read more...] about Under the Sea: A Diving Bucket List
By Rene Wisely Free Press special writer Published 6:05 AM EST Jan 30, 2019 Texas barbecue, a New York City meal and the vibe of a Parisian home are what some of the newest shops, restaurants and businesses in southeast Oakland County have to offer. ROYAL OAK New York City street food is the star of Detroit Eatery’s menu at 200 W. Fifth Ave., the former Detroit Dog Co. location. Think gyro rice platter, Asian fried rice, pita wraps, burgers, wing dings — all priced under $9, said co-owner Joe Ullah. “We are four friends from high school who wanted to do this together and we were inspired by our trips to New York, where we’d eat well from vendors,” Ullah said. Another nod to the Big Apple is Detroit Eatery's late hours. It’s open until 3 a.m. to capture the snack-seeking crowd exiting nearby O’Tooles and Fifth Avenue bars. In warmer months, Ullah promises to open the garage-door-style walls to … [Read more...] about Restaurants, shops and salons coming, going in Oakland County
