Sad to see...

But the wingers at the ag sites I attend are starting to justify the virus deaths to just everyday casualties...using numbers against past flu history of occurrences and death..With the underlying, but not spoken..see? its not so bad...Pathetic low lifes...all... ..

Like after 9- 11, they trivialized the deaths as less than at pearl harbor..To sanitize the fact shrub knew about the attack weeks prior but wouldn't shut down the airports...avoid panic...Sound familiar?

Joe will do just fine..

I remember when Reagan was elected, he created so many gaffes and silly comments people were going uh oh!!

And the wingers just said they would surround him with competent people..Now I don't know if that would necessarily be called for, but its good to know the man has been around the block and can seek all the counseling he needs..if necessary...

EXCLUSIVE-U.S. House panel faults FAA review of Boeing 737 MAX, plane design failures

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON, March 6 (Reuters) - A U.S. House investigative report into two Boeing 737 MAX crashes that killed 346 people will fault the Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) approval of the plane and Boeing's "design failures."

The preliminary investigative findings from the U.S. House Transportation Committee, which were seen by Reuters and are being released later on Friday, found the FAA's "certification review of Boeing’s 737 MAX was grossly insufficient and that the FAA failed in its duty to identify key safety problems." The 13-page report also finds Boeing's design "was marred by technical design failures, lack of transparency with both regulators and customers." The report adds the findings should prompt legislative changes to address how U.S. regulators approve new aircraft for service. FAA and Boeing did not immediately comment.

Revenues flight...a big deal with airlines having spent billions for development and manufacturing.
Certainly not an excuse for stupid mistakes...boeing needs to take the high road here and conduct
all appropriate testing and certifications that they have on other models...Forget the shortcuts, forget
what airhead bus is doing..do it right...

Any options to at&t hotspot data plans?

I bought into a Mobile Share 9GBs data plan for 70$..hotspot plus cell..with fees taxes etc it will be around 95$.
The 9gb is going fast..over half in one week..after it runs out the download speed goes to 128kbps..barely open some links..

The cheapest unlimited plan that goes to 30gbps is 85$ base plus 40$ for the unlimited particpant plan plus taxes..around 150$..
And it has a 30 gbps hotspot limit...which would be nice...But its still to pricey...I have another week, free status on a 2 week
'cancel without penalty' rule...

Any better plans with hotspots at 30 - 50 gbps?

Who I had absolutely no luck with..got screwed out of 50$....So I bailed a couple days ago..went at&t...initially 66$/month for internet and phone (LGK40). I bumped up to another package, on the direct tv..50$ to 60$/month and change..Last couple days been trying to get everything turned on...The direct tv tech was great..Finally got the phone working but when I tried to get a wireless connection to the desktop, I found out package wasn't setup for hotspot..Went to 70$/month..internet and phone..Then it was a little time getting all the different numbers, imei..ssid in the right places..net gear wireless adapter finally started working...after I put in the correct wifi password...

Over the course of the 18-month "Operation Liberty" rescue mission, 21 tigers and lions were saved from circuses in Guatemala. Now 17 of those big cats will be arriving at a secret sanctuary in South Africa.
