Aussies investigate rare dual flameout on Virgin plane

first_imgA Virgin ATR. Photo: Bahnfrend/Wikimedia Commons Australian air safety investigators are looking into a rare double flame-out on a twin-engine commuter plane descending into the nation’s capital.Both engines on a Virgin ATR-72-600 turboprop, registration VH-FVN, experienced problems near Canberra Airport on December 13.Although the disruptions were momentary and the aircraft landed safely, the probability of both engines shutting down during a flight is low and the Australian Transport Safety Bureau (ATSB) is treating the incident as serious.Turboprops use gas turbine engines to power the propeller and a flameout occurs when the flame in the combustion chamber is extinguished.  A flameout is believed to occur once in every 100,000 non-military flights, according to Air & Space Magazine.“While the aircraft was descending through 11,000 ft in heavy rain, the right engine’s power rolled back (decreased) and the engine flamed out,’’ The ATSB said. “The engine automatically re-started within five seconds.READ: Jetstar faces $A1.95 million fine for misleading customers.“The descent continued and, while passing through 10,000 ft, the left engine’s power also rolled back and that engine flamed out before automatically relighting.“The crew selected manual engine ignition for the remainder of the flight and the landing.”Although engines are designed to cope with extremely heavy rain, experts say it is normal to switch to continuous ignition as a precaution when heading into storms.This allows an engine to quickly relight in the case of a flameout, as was the case with the Virgin ATR.The aircraft spent three days on the ground before being returned to service. Virgin said the incident had not impacted customers and it was assisting the ATSB with its inquiries.The ATSB has downloaded the flight data recorder and is gathering additional information that will be included in a final report.“Should a critical safety issue be identified during the course of the investigation, the ATSB will immediately notify relevant parties so appropriate action can be taken,’’ it said.There have been a number of instances of jet engines flaming out in bad weather, not all of them with the happy ending in Canberra.In 1977, a Southern Airways DC-9 was forced to land on a highway in the US state of Georgia after suffering hail damage in a thunderstorm and losing thrust in both engines. Sixty-three people died.In 1988, A Salvadoran Boeing 737 operated by TACA flew through thunderstorms around New Orleans when both engines quit.The crew managed to relight them but they would not accelerate from idle speed and dangerously rising tailpipe temperatures forced the pilots to shut them down again.The captain dead-sticked the aircraft into a levee embankment and ditched the plane without loss of life.In 2002, a Garuda Indonesia Boeing 737 flight encountered severe thunderstorm activity on approach to Yogyakarta and suffered a flameout in both engines.The pilots  tried several times to restart the engines but were forced to ditch in a shallow river with the loss of one life.last_img read more

We were able to use a simple trick of bringing in the SVG for each icon and passing it into the Vue application. It was simple enough to generate a list of icons, and each icon reacted in a similar way except for small data differences. The data difference made it possible to bind the name of a panel to each icon in such a way that the handler for the icon’s button click could pass it on.When a panel is loaded in the form of Vue component, everything about the panel and its components has to be loaded, templates, JavaScript, and more. So, the job of just managing loading the panel is bigger than what we have encountered so far in this discussion.Let’s look at Vue’s way of providing a hook for async loading. The following snippet is from the Vue guide.Vue.component(‘async-example’, function (resolve, reject) { setTimeout(function () { // Pass the component definition to the resolve callback resolve({ template: ‘ read more

IPL 2014: Key Players from Chennai Super Kings

first_imgMS Dhoni will play a crucial role for Chennai in the IPL 2014 Total Money Spent(including retention): Rs 59.80 croreSquad: 20 players including 12 Indians and 8 overseas.Players to watch out for:MS Dhoni: If Chennai Super Kings intend to repeat their 2010 and 2011 heroics in the IPL 7 this year, it has to be skipper MS Dhoni who’ll need to lead from the front. The 32-year-old Captain Cool is one of the best finishers in limited overs cricket today. His ability to hold wickets in pressure situations and then accelerate ferociously at the death overs has earned him accolades all over the globe. With over 2200 runs in 96 games for Super Kings, Dhoni is as ferocious as they come in T20.Suresh Raina: One of the most prolific batsmen in the T20 format, he comes to the party more often than not. Not only is he capable of clearing the boundaries when required, his off-spin is also very handy. Raina is also one of the leading run-scorers for Super Kings with over 2800 runs and 21 wickets in his 99 IPL games.Ravichandran Ashwin: He is one of the bankers of the side and can put the brakes on opposition batsmen while also getting wickets. With 64 wickets in 67 games, Ashwin has been a key performer for the Super Kings in the IPL so far.Brendon McCullum: The 32-year-old swashbuckling batsman is the latest weapon Super Kings boasts of in the seventh edition of the IPL. The New Zealand skipper is one of the most explosive batsmen in the shortest version of the game. His breathtaking knock of 158 runs for Kolkata Knight Riders in the inaugural IPL match showcases his ability to take the game away from the opposition. With over 1200 runs in 48 games, McCullum will be one of the key players for the Super Kings this season.advertisementRavindra Jadeja: He has been on an amazing high over the past one year, with immense success in international cricket thanks to his left-arm spinners.

Jadeja has slammed over 1100 runs and notched up 39 wickets in his IPL career so far.last_img read more

Study looks at impact of hospital readmissions penalties on targeted surgical conditions

first_imgPotential alternativesIn the end, some readmissions are inevitable, the authors say, and trying to drive rates lower through penalties may mean some patients who should have been readmitted to deal with an issue won’t be.Instead, the researchers suggest that more use of bundled payments – where Medicare sets a defined amount of money it will pay for the episode of care surrounding a surgical patient’s operation – could produce better results. This is because bundled payments ensure hospitals focus on costs and complications around the entire episode of care, not just one narrow metric like readmissions.In the meantime, Chhabra says, patients who get hospitalized for surgery or any other reason should make sure to know what their lines of communication back to their care team at all hours after they leave the hospital.Patients and the loved ones who will care for them should also make sure they understand the instructions they received at hospital discharge, and know what kinds of symptoms or changes should prompt them to contact their team. Often, their surgical teams can provide instructions or reassurance that can prevent a bounce back to the emergency department.That kind of open communication can make the difference between an appropriate and an inappropriate rehospitalization. Source:Michigan Medicine – University of MichiganJournal reference:Chhabra, K.R. et al. (2019) Impact Of Medicare Readmissions Penalties On Targeted Surgical Conditions. Health Affairs. doi.org/10.1377/hlthaff.2019.00096. Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 2 2019Every American hospital has two front doors: The real one, and an imaginary revolving door.Any patient who winds up back in the hospital within a few weeks of getting out travels through that imaginary door. And the more of them there are, the more money their hospital stands to lose from the Medicare system.This readmission penalty, as it’s called, aims to spur hospitals to prevent unnecessary costly care.But a new study shows that after several years of rapid improvements in readmissions, the readmission penalty program may be spinning its wheels more than it’s slowing the spinning of the revolving hospital door.Writing in the journal Health Affairs, a team from the University of Michigan reports findings from their analysis of data from nearly 2.5 million Medicare patients. They focused on those who had hip or knee replacement surgery before and after penalties affecting these operations were announced.In fact, the study shows, the readmission rate for these patients had already started dropping by the time the idea of readmission penalties was announced as part of the Affordable Care Act in 2010.Soon after that, the readmissions rate for these surgical patients started dropping faster-;even though the penalties announced in the ACA did not apply to surgical patients.The rate kept dropping rapidly for several years -; even though hospitals weren’t getting penalized yet for hip and knee replacement-related readmissions.But that improvement started to slow down.After the government announced in late 2013 that penalties would expand to hip and knee replacement, the rate of readmissions for these patients kept dropping, but at nearly half the rate.In other words, improvements in surgical readmissions slowed to the same trend they had before any penalties were announced in 2010.”These findings raise the question of whether we’re about to reach the floor in our ability to reduce readmissions for these patients,” says Karan Chhabra, M.D., M.Sc., the study’s lead author.Trends beyond readmissionsAt the same time the readmission rates were changing, the average cost of caring for a Medicare hip or knee replacement patient did too, the new study shows.In fact, it dropped by more than $3,000 from 2008 to 2016.And hip and knee patients’ chance of heading home from the hospital, rather than to a skilled nursing facility or other setting, has increased over that time, the researchers report. So has the likelihood that they will have home health aide help when they get home.The same efforts that hospitals may have launched to prevent readmission of medical patients may have extended to these surgical patients, the authors speculate.These might include care coordination programs and telephone check-ins with recently discharged patients, or better patient education about home care or changes to their medications.Implications for expansionRelated StoriesFeeling safe and good sleep at night matter most to sick kids in hospitalStudy analyzes high capacity of A. baumannii to persist on various surfacesFlying insects in hospitals harbor pathogenic bacteriaThe Hospital Readmission Reduction Program, or HRRP, still carries large penalties – up to 3% of what a hospital earns for certain Medicare patients. Not only that, it has expanded to include more conditions, including heart bypass surgery and more types of pneumonia including those with sepsis.But Chhabra and his colleagues say that adding more conditions to the program is not likely to result in much more readmission prevention or cost savings.”Based on the experience so far, it’s hard to believe that adding on penalties for more conditions will further bend the curve of readmission,” says Chhabra, a National Clinician Scholar at the U-M Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation who is also a resident in the Department of Surgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital.Recent research by other groups has suggested that non-surgical patients may actually be harmed by the drive to reduce readmissions, including being more likely to die at home. Safety net hospitals, which take care of poorer and sicker patients, are also penalized more often by the program.Says Chhabra: We may be approaching the point for these surgical patients where the unintended consequences of readmissions reduction efforts begin to dominate. When you’ve squeezed the possible benefits out, all you have left are harms.”last_img read more

Remington bankruptcy shows depth of US gun slump Update

Explore further “Lazard approached over 30 potential funding sources to provide such financing,” Lefkovitz said. “The vast majority of lenders contacted, however, indicated that they were reluctant to provide financing to firearms manufacturers.”Remington instead turned to its existing lenders, including JPMorgan Chase and Franklin Advisers, Lefkovits said. Several others with long relationships with Remington, including Bank of America and Wells Fargo, are also providing financing during the propcess.The reorganization, considered a “prepackaged” bankruptcy because the major parties have already reached agreement, would eliminate $775 million in debt and shift to creditors control of new equity.Besides the financial incentive to stay in the transaction, banks involved in the bankruptcy might face legal liabilities if they walked away now.Bank of America and JPMorgan declined to comment. Wells Fargo did not immediately respond to request for comment.The bankruptcy comes amid intensifying pressure on major companies to take a stand on guns.Last week, Citigroup became the first major US bank to unveil significant new policies on guns, announcing it would require retail clients to bar sales to those under 21 or to people who have not passed a background check.Citigroup said it would also start “due diligence” among its gun manufacturing clients to understand their operations and whether they are in line with “common sense” gun policy.Asset manager BlackRock, the largest shareholder in several leading gun stocks, has also signaled plans to intensify scrutiny. It said in a March 2 notice that it was taking steps to reach out to clients who do not want to hold gun stocks and stepping up engagement with firearms executives on their products. But the hard times now facing gun companies began in November 2016.That was when Donald Trump’s surprise election victory in the US led to a sudden drop in US firearms demand, which had been robust until then as gun owners stockpiled in anticipation of a Hillary Clinton presidency.With Trump an avowed gun rights supporter with boasts of warm ties to the National Rifle Association, in office, gun enthusiasts slowed purchases, causing a glut. Massive discounting and deep layoffs at firearms companies soon followed.Gunmakers now face intensifying public scrutiny following the February 14 Florida school shooting that left 17 dead, sparking Saturday’s “March for our Lives.” Retailers such as Dick’s Sporting Goods and Walmart have moved to to distance themselves from the extreme end of the political spectrum on gun rights—with aversion spreading to the financial sector as well.But the immediate problem facing Remington and other firearms companies is the expectation for “new, lower levels of consumer firearm demand,” American Outdoor Brands chief executive James Debney said earlier this month.He said “flattish” firearms sales could persist for another 12-18 months.Headquartered in North Carolina, Remington dates to 1816, making it one of the nation’s oldest gunmakers.Besides guns, it makes bullets and barrel equipment, employing 2,700 people at seven facilities in the US and exporting to 52 countries, chief financial officer Stephen Jackson said in a filing in US Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.Remington experienced a “significant decline in sales” over the last year when demand “ultimately did not materialize” after the company boosted output in 2016, Jackson said. Operating profits in 2017 dwindled to just $33.6 million, less than one third the level just two years earlier, Jackson said. Gun reform advocates line Pennsylvania Avenue while attending the March for Our Lives rally March 24, 2018 in Washington, DC Some financers say noOn February 12, two days before the Parkland shooting, Remington signaled plans to file for bankruptcy protection, saying it reached a preliminary agreement with its creditors to allow the company to operate while it reorganizes.Remington however encountered difficulty with efforts to expand its pool of financers for the period after the bankruptcy filing, according to Ari Lefkovits, managing partner of Lazard Freres, which was hired by Remington.

Home internet connections hacked – heres how to protect yourself

Explore further This article was originally published on The Conversation. Read the original article. Securing your home’s connection to the internet. Credit: rommma/Shutterstock.com This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. Provided by The Conversation As graduate students and faculty doing research in cybersecurity, we know that hackers can take control of many routers, because manufacturers haven’t set them up securely. Router administrative passwords often are preset at the factory to default values that are widely known, like “admin” or “password.” By scanning the internet for older routers and guessing their passwords with specialized software, hackers can take control of routers and other devices. Then they can install malicious programs or modify the existing software running the device.Once an attacker takes controlThere’s a wide range of damage that a hacker can do once your router has been hijacked. Even though most people browse the web using securely encrypted communications, the directions themselves that let one computer connect to another are often not secure. When you want to connect to, say, theconversation.com, your computer sends a request to a domain name server – a sort of internet traffic director – for instructions on how to connect to that website. That request goes to the router, which either responds directly or passes it to another domain name server outside your home. That request, and the response, are not usually encrypted. A hacker could take advantage of that and intercept your computer’s request, to track the sites you visit. An attacker could also attempt to alter the reply, redirecting your computer to a fake website designed to steal your login information or even gain access to your financial data, online photos, videos, chats and browsing history.In addition, a hacker can use your router and other internet devices in your home to send out large amounts of nuisance internet traffic as part of what are called distributed denial of service attacks, like the October 2016 attack that affected major internet sites like Quora, Twitter, Netflix and Visa. Has your router been hacked?An expert with complex technical tools may be able to discover whether your router has been hacked, but it’s not something a regular person is likely to be able to figure out. Fortunately, you don’t need to know that to kick out unauthorized users and make your network safe.The first step is to try to connect to your home router. If you bought the router, check the manual for the web address to enter into your browser and the default login and password information. If your internet provider supplied the router, contact their support department to find out what to do.If you’re not able to login, then consider resetting your router – though be sure to check with your internet provider to find out any settings you’ll need to configure to reconnect after you reset it. When your reset router restarts, connect to it and set a strong administrative password. The next step US-CERT suggests is to disable older types of internet communications, protocols like telnet, SNMP, TFTP and SMI that are often unencrypted or have other security flaws. Your router’s manual or online instructions should detail how to do that.After securing your router, it’s important to keep it protected. Hackers are very persistent and are always looking to find more flaws in routers and other systems. Hardware manufacturers know this and regularly issue updates to plug security holes. So you should check regularly and install any updates that come out. Some manufacturers have smartphone apps that can manage their routers, which can make updating easier, or even automate the process. In late April, the top federal cybersecurity agency, US-CERT, announced that Russian hackers had attacked internet-connected devices throughout the U.S., including network routers in private homes. Most people set them up – or had their internet service provider set them up – and haven’t thought much about them since. But it’s the gateway to the internet for every device on your home network, including Wi-Fi connected ones. That makes it a potential target for anyone who wants to attack you, or, more likely, use your internet connection to attack someone else.

Karnataka crisis SC verdict on pleas of rebel MLAs tomorrow

first_imgNEW DELHI: The Supreme Court will on Wednesday morning pronounce its order on the pleas of 15 rebel Congress-JD(S) MLAs seeking direction for Karnataka speaker K R Ramesh Kumar to accept their resignations from the assembly. A bench headed by Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi concluded the hearings of the rebel MLAs, the speaker and Karnataka chief minister H D Kumaraswamy. Will decide on disqualification, resignation of rebel MLAs by Wednesday: Karnataka Speaker to Supreme CourtSumming up the arguments, senior advocate Mukul Rohatgi, appearing for the 15 MLAs, asked the bench to continue with its interim order directing the speaker to maintain status quo on the issue of resignations and disqualification of the MLAs. The counsel for the rebel MLAs also asked the bench that if the House assembles for business, the 15 rebel MLAs be exempted from appearing on the basis of the whip of the ruling coalition which, he said, has been reduced to minority government. Kumaraswamy told the top court that it had no jurisdiction to pass the two interim orders asking the speaker to decide and, later, to maintain the status quo on the resignations and disqualification of the rebel MLAs. Live updates: Karnataka crisis Senior advocate Rajeev Dhavan, appearing for Kumaraswamy, told the bench that the speaker cannot be compelled to decide this issue in a time bound manner. “When resignation process is not in order, court cannot direct speaker to decide by 6pm,” Dhavan told the bench, also comprising Justices Deepak Gupta and Aniruddha Bose. Kumaraswamy also told the court that the rebel MLAs were hunting in a pack to destabilise his government and that the court should not have entertained their petitions. Senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the speaker, told the bench that no direction was issued to the Karnataka speaker by the court in the midnight hearing when floor test was ordered and B S Yedurappa was invited to form the government last year. He told the bench that the speaker was yet to decide on the resignations and disqualification of rebel MLAs and the court had ample power to punish. Speaker urged the apex court to modify its earlier order directing him to maintain status quo in the ongoing political crisis in the state even as the rebel MLAs accused him of acting in a partisan manner by not deciding on their resignations. Singhvi said the speaker would decide on both disqualifications and resignation of the rebel MLAs by Wednesday but the court should modify its earlier order asking him to maintain status quo. Rohtagi argued that the speaker cannot keep the resignation of these MLAs pending and by doing so he is acting in a partisan manner. Countering his submissions, Singhvi told the bench that speakers cannot be asked to decide the matter in a time-bound manner. “How can the speaker be directed to decide in a particular manner?” Singhvi asked the court. “Such orders are not passed even to a trial court.” He also said that a valid resignation should be submitted to the speaker personally and the MLAs appeared before him only on July 11, five days after they submitted their resignations to his office. The rebel MLAs told the court that the speaker kept their resignation pending just to disqualify them and there was nothing wrong in resigning to escape disqualification. Rohatgi submitted before the bench that the speaker can be directed to decide on the resignation of the MLAs by 2pm and he can take a call on their disqualification later. The bench asked Rohatgi if there was any constitutional obligation on the speaker to decide on the MLAs’ disqualification which was initiated after the resignation. Rohatgi said the rules say to ‘decide now’ on resignation. “How can the speaker keep it pending?” The rebel MLAs told the court that the state government has been reduced to minority and the speaker, by not accepting their resignations, has attempted coercing them to vote for the government in trust vote. Disqualification proceeding is a mini-trial under the Constitution’s 10th Schedule, Rohatgi said, adding that resignation is different and its acceptance is based on a single criterion alone — whether it is voluntary or not. There is nothing to show the rebel MLAs conspired with BJP, the senior advocate said. The disqualification proceeding was nothing but to scuttle resignation of MLAs, he said. He also told the court that the disqualification proceedings were initiated for not being a disciplined soldier of the party and for not attending meetings outside the House. The bench further asked if all the disqualification pleas are on same grounds, to which Rohatgi replied “more or less same”. He had also told the court that the speaker has to only see if the resignations were voluntary or not. “Resignation has to be accepted, there is no other way to deal with it,” Rohatgi told the court. “It is my fundamental right to do whatever I want to do and cannot be bound due to non-acceptance of resignation by speaker,” submitted Rohatgi. There is vote of confidence in assembly and the rebel MLAs may be forced to follow whip despite resigning, he said. Rohatgi told the court that the 10 MLAs resigned on July 6 and disqualification proceedings against two lawmakers were pending. “When was the disqualification proceedings filed against rest eight MLAs,” the top court asked, to which Rohatgi responded that disqualification proceedings started against them on July 10.

Trump says he wishes British ambassador well

first_img Related News World 10 Jul 2019 Factbox: Who is Kim Darroch, the British ambassador who quit after row with Trump? Related News WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday offered good wishes to Britain’s former ambassador to Washington, Kim Darroch, who resigned this week after stinging criticism from the Republican president following leaked diplomatic cables.Memos from Darroch describing the Trump administration as inept were leaked to a British newspaper, infuriating Trump, who launched a Twitter attack on Tuesday on both the envoy and outgoing Prime Minister Theresa May, who had given Darroch her full support. Darroch resigned on Wednesday.”I wish the British ambassador well,” Trump told reporters on Friday as he left the White House to head to Wisconsin. “But they’ve got to stop their leaking problems there, just like they have to stop them in our country.”In his Twitter storm on Tuesday, Trump described the ambassador as “wacky,” “a very stupid guy” and a “pompous fool.” Trump did not directly address his change of tone on Friday, but said “some people just told me … he actually said very good things about me.”He mentioned Republican Senator Lindsey Graham, who said in a tweet on Wednesday that Darroch “always understood the strength of President Trump and referred to him as the ‘Terminator’ who is indestructible and will most likely be reelected.”According to Britain’s Mail on Sunday newspaper, which reported on Darroch’s memos, the envoy wrote there was a “credible path” for Trump winning a second term. He said Trump may “emerge from the flames, battered but intact, like (Arnold) Schwarzenegger in the final scenes of The Terminator.”Britain’s trade minister, Liam Fox, told reporters on Wednesday that the leaking of Darroch’s confidential memos was an attempt to damage either the relationship between Britain and the United States or the envoy himself.
