Air France passengers describe mid-air terror as engine disintegrates over Atlantic

Pharma news - October 1, 2017 - 2:29am

French aviation investigators arrived in Canada on Sunday amid questions over the cause of an apparent engine explosion that forced an Air France airliner to make an emergency landing. Passengers reported hearing a loud bang on the Paris-Los Angeles flight, followed by vibrations that shook the cabin for 20 minutes. By the time the Airbus A380 superjumbo jetliner landed at a military airfield in Goose Bay, Newfoundland on Saturday, the cowling covering one of the plane’s four engines had been completely torn off. Here's a video of the landing. pic.twitter.com/aLUoM5avLH— Jacob Soboroff (@jacobsoboroff) 30 September 2017 Pamela Adams, a passenger, said there was “a tremendous bang… like the plane hit a Jeep at 35,000 feet. We grabbed on to something and then we sat down, and the plane righted itself fairly soon.” Another passenger, Daniel McNeely, said those in window seats said the entire engine exploded “in a giant fireball.” The crumpled engine of the Air France A380 superjumbo is seen in this photo taken by one of the passengers on board. Credit: AFP PHOTO / TWITTER / Sarah Eamigh Sarah Eamigh said: ”The cabin started vibrating. Someone screamed, and from there we knew something was wrong. We saw the cabin crew walking through the aisles quickly, and we heard an announcement from the captain that said one of our engines had an explosion.” An Air France Airbus A380 is seen during an emergency landing in Happy Valley-Goose Bay Credit: Reuters Passengers nervously joked to each other as they tried to work out what had happened, Ms Adams said. Some thought the plane had struck a bird. The forced landing revived memories of engine damage to a Qantas A380 shortly after takeoff from Singapore seven years ago. The November 2010 incident prompted the grounding of the entire Qantas A380 fleet — six airliners at the time — for more than three weeks. I talked to the passenger by the window and He said the entire engine exploded into giant fireball.— Daniel McNeely (@DanMcneely) September 30, 2017 There were no injuries among the 520 people aboard the double-decker airliner. Passengers completed their journeys to Los Angeles aboard two planes sent by Air France to Goose Bay, which is used as a emergency landing spot for transatlantic flights.

Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte has said he would not cooperate with a special anti-corruption prosecutor's investigation into allegations he acquired ill-gotten wealth, vowing he would "not submit" to its authority.

Duterte responded by lashing out at the ombudsman, calling the agency "lousy" and saying allegations against him were "lies based on baseless" information.

Thinking the unthinkable in China: Abandoning North Korea

Pharma news - September 30, 2017 - 10:35pm

North Korea's nuclear antics have rattled its alliance with China to the point that Beijing is allowing the previously unthinkable to be discussed: Is it time to prepare for the renegade regime's collapse? While China's official goal is to bring Washington and Pyongyang to the negotiating table, it is also permitting once taboo debate on contingencies in case war breaks out in the isolated nation across its northeast border. Observers say the public debate might be a tactic to try and coerce Pyongyang into cooling its weapons programme, with its nuclear and missile tests visibly angering Beijing, which has backed tough new United Nations sanctions on the country.

Iran Wants America to Ignore Its Nuclear Ambitions

Pharma news - September 30, 2017 - 8:28pm

Once the nuclear deal expires, Iran will ironically be much better positioned to move to nuclear weapons than it was before the deal was negotiated. The starting point for any assessment of the Iran nuclear deal—or Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)—is the recognition that Iran remains a determined nuclear proliferator, and that the deal does not prevent it from achieving its nuclear goal. In fact, if the international community is lulled into believing that the deal “is working,” this will actually provide Iran with much needed breathing space to strengthen itself economically, regionally and in the nuclear realm.

5 Reasons Why a 2nd Korean War Won't Be Like the First (and Much Worse)

Pharma news - September 30, 2017 - 8:20pm

If a Second Korean War were to erupt tomorrow, there is one thing we can be sure of. It won’t be like the First Korean War of 1950-53. France lost in 1940 because they assumed World War II would be fought in the trenches like World War I. Israel almost lost in 1973 because they assumed the Arab armies would collapse as they did in 1967.
