Advertisement Supported by ByDavid Gelles and Natalie Kitroeff May 5, 2019 When Boeing began delivering its 737 Max to customers in 2017, the company believed that a key cockpit warning light was a standard feature in all of the new jets. But months after the planes were flying, company engineers realized that the warning light worked only on planes whose customers had bought a different, optional indicator. In essence, that meant a safety feature that Boeing thought was standard was actually a premium add-on. Boeing detailed its initial confusion about the warning light in a statement released on Sunday, adding new details to what was already known about the flawed design and introduction of the 737 Max, its best-selling … [Read more...] about Boeing Believed a 737 Max Warning Light Was Standard.

Who has time to care about a Spring Statement when the unfolding Brexit process feels like watching a cross between Saw 3 and a monster truck rally? This has been a problem for two and a half years – the Brexit black hole has sucked time and resources away from almost every other area of public policy. From the shortage of housing to the knife crime crisis in the capital, nothing gets the attention that it deserves. Of course, not all issues should be treated equally, and I’m hesitant to treat the Spring Statement in any grandiose fashion. Indeed, my colleague Philip Booth has been arguing for years that the annual Budget should be slimmed down dramatically, or abolished all together. I take his point – as presenting Budgets in the political arena encourages grandstanding and gives the chancellor more opportunity to meddle in the economy. But as the Spring Statement has come and gone, too little attention has been paid to what has changed – or what has not. … [Read more...] about State-centric and uninspiring: The Spring Statement wasn’t much to get excited about

By Faiza Farid Published: January 3, 2019 0 SHARES Share Tweet Email The book has a hidden, nuanced language of its own and Reddy has written it with such precision that one never grows tired of delving into such territory. For the masses of the subcontinent (India and Pakistan), Sheela Reddy’s Mr and Mrs Jinnah tells the fascinating tale of a small yet poignant romance that some people might experience in life (if fortunate enough). The book explores some of the most vivid details of the lives of Rattanbai Jinnah (Ruttie) and Muhammad Ali Jinnah, Jinnah’s political stalwart for projecting his career above communal rights, and the doomed marriage that ended in separation despite the unusual love that lived on. Colonialism and the pre-Partition history of the subcontinent still enthrall the minds of both the old and the young. Since the populations of both India and Pakistan consist of mostly young people, the book offers the beautiful … [Read more...] about Mr and Mrs Jinnah: A story of love that wasn’t enough to save an ill-fated marriage

Walking in my neighborhood in East Cambridge one day, I stumbled across an obscure plaque put up by the Cambridge Historical Commission more than 40 years ago. I was astonished to learn that Cambridge had been home to one of the world’s first monorail systems — an experimental track in place from 1884 to 1894.It was envisioned as the prototype for a regional rapid transit system that would have made Boston into a kind of steampunk utopia. The city would have been criss-crossed by marvelous tubular trains that looked like they were designed by Captain Nemo. But we never got that version of Boston, because in 1887, the East Cambridge monorail project got abruptly. . . derailed.At any given moment in history, we humans have multiple … [Read more...] about The Cambridge monorail that wasn’t
