first_img Boeing’s first crewed test flight to the International Space Station will be longer than originally planned to complete additional microgravity research, maintenance, and other activities while the Starliner craft is docked to station, NASA announced today.NASA and Boeing have agreed to extend the duration of the flight test after completing an in-depth technical assessment of the CST-100 Starliner systems. They are now targeting the crew flight test, with astronauts on board, to late 2019, after delaying the uncrewed Orbital Flight Test to August.“NASA’s assessment of extending the mission was found to be technically achievable without compromising the safety of the crew,” said Phil McAlister, director of the commercial spaceflight division at NASA Headquarters. “Commercial crew flight tests, along with the additional Soyuz opportunities, help us transition with greater flexibility to our next-generation commercial systems under the Commercial Crew Program.”Boeing technicians lower the Starliner upper dome to the lower dome before bolting and sealing the pressure vessel.

Our Boeing and NASA teams are making tremendous progress without compromising safety as we prepare for launch.”Boeing’s Starliner spacecraft, which is designed to be reusable up to 10 times, is nearly complete, according to NASA.  “The Starliner team is working to complete all of the critical testing and integration on the spacecraft to ensure the shortest possible time between the completion of the uncrewed flight and the first launch of crew, and then to operational missions to station.”Boeing’s Chris Ferguson helps NASA astronauts Nicole Mann and Mike Fincke train for a spacewalk.

In March, the company completed an uncrewed flight test, known as Demo-1, to the space station. SpaceX now is processing the same Crew Dragon spacececraft for an in-flight abort test. The company then will fly a test flight with a crew, known as Demo-2, to the station.More on Astronaut Eric Boe Is Pulled From Boeing’s Starliner Test FlightSpaceX Crew Dragon Successfully Docks to Space StationBoeing Unveils ‘Wingman’ Drone That Could Fly Alongside Fighter Jets Stay on target NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendHubble Captures Saturn’s ‘Phonograph Record’ Ring System last_img read more

first_imgBritish Airways (BA) cabin crew staff based at Gatwick Airport may face decreased pay or redundancy by 31 October under plans for a revised staff structure.The shift will bring the Gatwick cabin crew teams’ structure in line with the rest of British Airways’ crews.Some of the most senior crew members, cabin managers and pursers, were given letters last week informing them that they would have to accept lower-paid roles or opt for redundancy. Around 360 staff will be affected.A British Airways spokesperson said: “We have been consulting with the cabin crew trade union for 10 months on proposed changes to senior cabin crew roles at Gatwick so that we have an operation that is sustainable, competitive and crucially ensures we will deliver a great service to our customers.”Oliver Richardson, national officer at Unite, the union that is representing some of the affected cabin crew members, said: “We’ve put forward a number of different options to BA, but instead they are ploughing on with changes that will result in some senior cabin crew at Gatwick receiving a significant pay cut or losing their job. This is unacceptable.“We would urge BA to think again and negotiate meaningfully to find a solution that meets its business needs while addressing the concerns of our senior cabin crew members.”last_img read more

first_imgIndia`s prime minister Narendra Modi delivers the keynote address at the IISS Shangri-la Dialogue in Singapore on 1 June 2018. — ReutersIndian prime minister Narendra Modi said he would be re-elected with an even bigger majority in parliament in 2019, dismissing opposition attempts to rouse opinion against his government for failing to deliver on promises of swift economic development and more jobs for young people.Modi told the Times of India in an interview published on Sunday that his Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) led government is committed to improving the lives of all citizens regardless of faith.Concerns have grown that his administration has been unable to rein in right-wing fringe groups that are trying to undermine India’s secular constitution by targeting the nation’s large Muslim minority.“We will definitely get more seats than we got the last time and I am confident that we will break all records of the seats won by NDA (National Democratic Alliance) in the past and achieve greater glory.“The people are with us and we have nothing to fear,” Modi told the newspaper in an email interview.Opinion polls show he remains the front runner to win another five-year term, but the party has suffered reverses in some local elections in the past few months that have energized the opposition.The BJP failed to win power in southern Karnataka in May, the first big state to elect a new assembly this year in a contest widely seen as a test of its popularity after four years in office. It also lost a few races in the big heartland state of Uttar Pradesh in the north.But Modi said voters wanted a strong and decisive central government to deliver on India’s promise as a big economy and one of the potential drivers of global growth.“My platform will be development, fast development and development for all…We have worked very hard in the last four years and we will go to the people with our track record of development,” Modi said.The opposition, led by the Congress party, is trying to pull together a grand alliance of regional parties and even communist groups to mount a joint campaign against Modi, who is seen as a divisive figure pushing a partisan, Hindu-first agenda.Attacks on Muslims who are engaged in the cattle trade by Hindu vigilante groups who are opposed to the slaughter of cows have fueled fears that the government is either unable or unwilling to restrain them.Modi’s party denies any bias against Muslims and he told the Times of India that his government believes in equality in the rule of law for all citizens.The BJP won 282 seats in the 2014 general election, giving it a simple majority in the lower house of Parliament. The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance (NDA) won 336 seats out of 543.The opposition last month moved a no-confidence vote against the government but Modi easily survived thanks to his parliamentary majority.last_img

Chile and Venezuela are “escort” countries. All four had called for an urgent de-escalation of the violence.Colombia’s civil strife dates back to 1964 and has drawn in left-wing guerrillas, right-wing paramilitaries and drug gangs, killing more than 220,000 people and uprooting as many as six million.FARC rebels had been observing a unilateral ceasefire since December, and it led to relative calm.But clashes resumed in mid-April, following an ambush by the rebels that left 11 soldiers dead. Each side blames the other for the escalation. The FARC ended their truce in May.During that truce, the fighters claim that government forces stepped up attacks on rebel camps.Since that truce ended, about 30 rebels have been killed in army operations and recent surveys show the public is increasingly wary about the peace process.

first_imgHug Thailand Visitors to Thailand will always be amazed by the many experiences the country has to offer, according to Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Governor Suraphon Svetasrenim. The Governor told a Sydney tourism function on Tuesday that the total number of international visitor arrivals to Thailand reached 11.2 million for the nine months to September. This figure, which represented a 13 per cent increase to the corresponding period in 2009, was achieved despite the recent political unrest in Bangkok. Mr Svetasreni also reported that Australian visitor’s arrivals had increased by over 10 per cent for the period to approximately 500,000. “Significantly, 63% of those Aussie travellers were repeat visitors, indicating a special interest in Thai holiday opportunities”, he said.”What is important to Thailand is that each of those visitors stayed an average of 12 days and spent in excess of $160 a day”. The Governor announced a TAT ‘balanced strategy,’ which has been designed to ensure long-term, sustainable tourism growth in 2011 and beyond.TAT will also enhance its successful Amazing Thailand theme with the new tag line, Amazing Thailand Always Amazes You and it has also launched a number of promotional videos.

first_imgIf Turkey really wished to continue its EU accession course, it must comply with European principles and respect European law and the Law of the Sea, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Tuesday.Speaking to reporters on the sidelines of the 9th Mediterranean Forum on Oil and Gas in Nicosia, the president was asked about the Varna EU-Turkey summit. He said Turkish president Tayyip Erdogan had insisted there that the Turkish Cypriots should always be taken into account in respect of any hydrocarbons activities in the Eastern Mediterranean. “The European Council conclusions have been passed on to Turkey,” Anastasiades said, adding that public statements both by European Council President Donald Tusk and European Commission President Jean Claude Juncker had been very clear.During a post-summit news conference in Varna on Monday, the leaders of EU institutions warned Turkey that its accession passed through good neighbourliness, including normalisation of relations with Cyprus and Greece.Tusk and Juncker called on Erdogan to cease all illegal activities in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean, respect Cyprus’ drilling rights and release EU citizens, including the two Greek soldiers being held in Turkey.“Good bilateral relations with EU member states are also an important commitment within the accession process,” Tusk said. “We welcome positive progress in recent months with some of our member states, but still have serious concerns about inter alia recent Turkish actions in the Eastern Mediterranean and the Aegean Sea as well as the detention of EU citizens.”Tusk said the EU “stands united behind the Republic of Cyprus regarding its right to explore and exploit its natural resources in its exclusive economic zone” and stressed that “this is also important in view of our shared objective for the successful reunification of Cyprus for the benefit of both populations on the island, for Turkey, the European Union and for EU-Turkey relations”.Juncker said Turkey needed to improve its relations with EU member states. “I want to talk about Cyprus and I want to talk about Greece. It is essential for us to move forward on a promising road of the future,” he said.Anastasiades said he did not wish to comment further on what the EU leadership had said.“I hope that eventually Turkey will realise that if it’s really interested, not for tactical reasons…  that it wants to continue its accession course, it must comply with European principles, values and with respect for international law and the Law of the Sea,” said Anastasiades.Turkish Cypriots were fully covered as far as energy rights were concerned, he said, and added that the protection of these rights by Turkey was just a pretext for Ankara to control natural resources in the region and become the energy centre for supplying Europe.Asked how the EU would react if Turkey did not implement the conclusions’ text, Anastasiades said: “Instead of anticipating such decisions in order to wait and see how we will act then, we are [already] acting wisely by using diplomatic channels to achieve what we all want: peace, stability and certainly ensuring the rights of all,” he said“What we have said and repeated dozens of times… what we seek is peace, and of course the benefits of natural resources, as already agreed, owned by the state, belonging to the citizens either Turkish or Greek Cypriots. ”In his address to the oil and gas conference, Anastasiades referred to Turkey’s “gunboat diplomacy” in the island’s exclusive economic zone (EEZ) when it blockaded Italian giant ENI’s drillship from reaching its target site in block 3 last month.“No one can deny that Turkey’s actions are aimed at achieving the country’s long-term goal of becoming an exclusive energy supply hub for the European Union, either from Russian sources or the Caspian basin, or even, as we can conclude from recent events, to control the natural gas supply from the Eastern Mediterranean to Europe,” added Anastasiades, who also expressed his satisfaction with the Varna conclusions in his speech.“For the first time there is an unprecedented strong condemnation of Turkey’s continuing illegal activity in the Eastern Mediterranean, which of course includes the EEZ of Cyprus,” he said.Another element was the fact the EU would be vigilant following the implementation or not of the conclusions.“I do hope that Turkey will finally adopt the realistic approach of changing tactics and behaviour… in order to achieve progress in what matters to both the EU and all of us. We mean business when we say we want Turkey as an ally. But not as one who is a troublemaker. Our intention is to insist that the best solution is the solution of the Cyprus problem, but what we need as well are policies which are in line with international law, European law, the Law of the Sea”Government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Tuesday that despite the fact there were no tangible results from Varna, the reactivation of the EU-Turkey dialogue could “act as a leverage for Turkey’s choices and behaviour”.He said Nicosia believes that the EU-Turkey dialogue should be governed by the principles put forward in Varna. “This can be a lever of pressure for Turkey’s choices and behaviour,” he said.Erdogan responded to Varna late Monday saying it would be a big mistake to leave Turkey out of the EU’s enlargement process.  “Regardless of the course of the Cyprus issue, the equal involvement of the Turkish Cypriots in decision-making on natural resources around the island is in accordance with international law,” he argued.Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim, was quoted on Tuesday as saying EU leaders had “handed the future of the bloc to the Greek Cypriots” who had rejected the Cyprus negotiations. You May LikeViralScape32 Abandoned Places That Actually ExistViralScapeUndoJournalistateConsidering an SUV These Are the 10 Most Fuel EfficientJournalistateUndoFinance NancyInside Rush Limbaugh’s Mega-Millions Florida MansionFinance NancyUndo LED-lighting the way by 2020UndoIran’s Revolutionary Guards publish purported exchange with British warshipUndoGreek Prime Minister in Cyprus for official visitUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

to the conclusion that they knew and that they were trying to cash out" said Stuart Slotnick a corporate defense attorney at Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney But no one should jump to conclusions he said "There is nothing wrong with [them] cashing out if it’s not connected to the news""It would be incredible if these sophisticated insiders would sell their shares based upon news They are sophisticated executives and they know full well that their selling the shares triggers public disclosures It just doesn’t make sense that the CFO would sell a small lot of shares before a news event" Slotnick saidTo prove insider trading federal prosecutors would have to show the executives knew about the nonpublic information when they decided to sell their stock often a tough task experts saidThe company’s board of directors should conduct an independent review of the executives’ actions including surveying their email traffic and interviewing the executives as well as their colleagues said

Governor Nasiru Ahmed El-Rufai to order and to stop him from sowing seeds of discord among the people by the conversion of some chiefdoms to Emirate councils in Southern Kaduna Nasiru Jagaba leader SOKAPU Youth Wing while addressing newsmen in Kaduna Thursday said “We are calling on all well-meaning individuals corporate groups other state governments the Federal Government and the international community to call el-Rufai to order He should not be allowed to sow seeds of conflicts that will outlive his unfortunate government “It could be recalled that last month on his Twitter handle El-Rufai twitted a lie that the Chiefs of Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere all in Southern Kaduna had requested for a change of their royal titles (nomenclature) to ‘Emirs’ in which he promptly granted “His revelation created anger and tension not only in the affected areas but the entire Southern Kaduna Somehow people showed restrain in the typical peaceful and tolerant nature of our people “El-Rufai’s who has since crumbled politically socially and has economically destroyed Kaduna state is now gambling with religion to appease to Muslims most who have long concluded on him as a total failure “The governor who has not initiated and completed one single viable project in the past three years is trying to sow conflict between Muslims and Christians as a means of distracting attention from his humongous failures “El-Rufai does not only nurse a pathological hatred for Southern Kaduna his present action shows that he cares even little if Kaduna state burns as long as he hoists his hate policies over us” The youths noted that by implication every Christian and all non-Muslims in the affected new Emirates will come under the customs and tradition of Islamic rule “It has now become impossible for anyone among the majority of the population of the new emirates to aspire to the stool unless they convert to Islam “The governor is desperately doing everything within and outside his powers to denigrate our history culture and tradition by imposing Islamic enclaves in these areas This is to create a deceptive narration that Muslims are indeed the owners of these lands “By this development the governor is assisting the new Emirs to go into land grabbing and motivate unplanned immigration of Muslims to settle on the lands to strengthened the new emirates” the youth lamented They explained “Anytime the governor is not downgrading the population of Southern Kaduna from 51 per cent of the population of the state (according to the 2006 Census) to 30 per cent he is bent on seeing that the highest mass of sacked workers under his grim regime are from Southern Kaduna “Governor Nasir el-Rufai has not only tried to destroy tertiary education in Southern Kaduna by shutting down every the tertiary institutions there for nearly a year for not just cause he also imposed a punishing 24-hour curfew for weeks over some parts of Southern Kaduna with the purpose of destroying us economically all in 2016 Yet under that period the affected areas had come under the siege of his Fulani kinsmen “His diabolical hate for Southern Kaduna is not only reflected in the complete absence of any serious project in the area but demonstrated in his latest dangerous elevation of four chiefs to Emirs thus creating of new Emirates over these chiefdoms in Southern Kaduna whose communities are essentially non-Muslims “Instead of heeding to wise counsel to withdraw the idea a letter dated 30 May 2018 signed by Adamu M Mansur Permanent Secretary Ministry of Local Government Affairs confirmed that the Chief of Kauru Kauru LGA had indeed been upgraded from a Chief to a Muslim religious ruler and had become Emir This was without any sort of consultation with our people “To spite us further the Commissioner for Local Government Affairs Prof Kabiru Mato issued a statement affirming the belligerent position of the governor by insisting that the Chiefs of Kagarko Kajuru Kauru and Lere chiefdoms requested for a change of nomenclature and was approved In other words these Chiefdoms have automatically become Emirates “Yet Apart from the unending curse of armed herdsmen plundering and killing our people in Southern Kaduna; the unprecedented neglect of the place under the present government the issue of change of status of the four chiefdoms have never been a source of concern at any time to our people “Anyone who has the most rudimentary information of Southern Kaduna will first and foremost affirmed that the four LGAs so affected are overwhelming Christians with sprinkling of Muslims settlements in some semi-urban areas Even at that these settlements such as Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere stand like tiny islands in a sea of Christian communities In the hundreds of years of Islamic history in Northern Nigeria no local government area of Southern Kaduna has ever been traditionally Islamic Not even by 10 per cent” The youth added “We totally and completely reject and denounce the title of ‘Emir’ and the foisting of emirate system on Kauru Kagarko Kajuru and Lere Chiefdoms “We want the status quo to stand Both Muslims Christians and other faiths have no issues with the ‘Chiefs’ and ‘Chiefdoms’ “We call on affected LGAs to remain peaceful and law abiding but should never recognise the new ‘Emirs’ and to also disregard the new ‘Emirates’
