Ethiopian Airlines rejects 'pilot error' claim in US -

Ethiopian Airlines rejects 'pilot error' claim in USA US politician who blamed pilot error for contributing to the deadly crash of a Boeing 737 MAX flown by Ethiopian Airlines was "seriously misinformed", the carrier's boss has said. Republican Sam Graves told a House of Representatives hearing last month that "facts" in investigations after crashes in both Ethiopia and Indonesia "reveal pilot error as a factor in these tragically fatal accidents". The 737 MAX 8 is currently grounded worldwide after Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 crashed in March, killing all 157 people onboard and drawing scrutiny to the new Boeing model's anti-stall system.

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next year -

Insider claims Apple will launch 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch 5G iPhone models next yearLeaks concerning this fall's upcoming iPhone models continue to trickle out at a steady pace, but some analysts are already looking ahead to 2020. In a research note shared with AnTuTu (via MacRumors), TF International Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo revealed new details about the prospective 2020 smartphone lineup from Apple.According to Kuo, Apple will once again release three iPhone models in 2020, but will make significant changes to the designs of the high-end models. The successors to the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Max will supposedly feature 5.4-inch and 6.7-inch displays, respectively, and will both support 5G. The iPhone 11R follow-up will retain a 6.1-inch display, but Kuo believes that all three models will have OLED screens in 2020.Furthermore, Kuo says that every iPhone model will support 5G by 2021, and that Qualcomm will be Apple's primary supplier of 5G modems initially. By 2022 or 2023, though, Apple should have its own 5G modem ready, which would reduce its reliance on Qualcomm (with which Apple recently reached a major settlement agreement).A vast majority of the credible leaks concerning this year's iPhone models suggest that Apple will stick to the familiar notch design for at least one more year. It's hard to see Apple opting for any of the current design alternatives, such as the pop-up camera of the OnePlus 7 Pro or the hole-punch camera of the Galaxy S10. But by 2020, perhaps the prospect of embedding a camera and the necessary sensors beneath the display will be less daunting.Regardless, if Kuo's report is on point, the design of the 2020 iPhone models will be the most significant departure for the smartphone line since the iPhone X was introduced in 2017. The addition of a 5.4-inch model will undoubtedly be a welcome change for those who find the standard iPhone X and XS to be too large as well.

Mitch McConnell Wonders Why Jon Stewart Is ‘All Bent Out of Shape’ Over 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund -

Mitch McConnell Wonders Why Jon Stewart Is ‘All Bent Out of Shape’ Over 9/11 Victim Compensation FundAfter comedian Jon Stewart raked him over the coals for dragging his feet (once again) on extending the 9/11 Victim Compensation Fund, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell complained Monday morning that Stewart was just looking for some way to be offended. And the senator added that he didn’t get why he was “all bent out of shape.”Following his emotional House testimony on behalf of 9/11 first responders in which he excoriated Congress for seemingly not caring about the plight of the victims, Stewart appeared on Fox News Sunday and shamed McConnell for not prioritizing the bill.“I want to make it clear that this has never been dealt with compassionately by Senator McConnell,” the former Daily Show host said. “He has always held out until the very last minute and only then, under intense lobbying and public shaming has he even deigned to move on it.”Appearing Monday on Fox & Friends, McConnell was asked to react to Stewart’s comments. The Kentucky lawmaker essentially shrugged and said this is just how Congress works.“Well, many things in Congress happen at the last minute,” he responded. “We’ve never failed to address this issue and we will address it again. I don’t know why he is all bent out of shape but we will take care of the 9/11 Victims Compensation Fund.”Co-host Steve Doocy noted that Stewart appeared to be upset during his House testimony that many members of the subcommittee didn’t show up that day, prompting McConnell to claim that members of Congress tend to “have a lot of things going on at the same time.”“It sounds to me like he is looking for some way to take offense,” the senator added.McConnell concluded the interview by insisting that there was “no way we won’t address this problem appropriately” and assuring the Fox hosts that the Senate will make sure the bill is funded.Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

U.S. businesses beg to be left off Trump's tariff list -

U.S. businesses beg to be left off Trump's tariff listThe higher tariffs would affect everything from apparel and footwear to fireworks and cellphones, and was likely to raise prices for U.S. consumers, the companies warned in submissions ahead of the start of seven days of public hearings on Monday. Diane Cheatham, owner of Diane’s Formal Affair, an Alabama-based women's boutique, said new tariffs would completely shut down her American suppliers, who will be unable to come up with the funding to cover the additional 25% they would need to pay to import their products. "I am writing this letter pleading with you to keep our industry out of the next round of tariffs," Cheatham said.

AOC: ‘Hyde Amendment Is about Income Inequality’ Not Abortion -

AOC: ‘Hyde Amendment Is about Income Inequality’ Not AbortionRepresentative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Sunday praised former vice president Joe Biden for his recently announced opposition to the Hyde amendment and said that her own opposition to the prohibition on the direct federal funding of abortion is rooted in her concern about income inequality.“I’m encourage by the fact that he is now against the Hyde Amendment,” Ocasio-Cortez told ABC’s Jonathan Karl when asked about Biden’s recent reversal on the issue.Ocasio-Cortez, who launched a petition over the weekend to build public support for the amendment's repeal, went on to explain that the direct federal funding of abortion is necessary to protect the abortion rights of incarcerated pregnant women.“Reproductive health care for incarcerated women should be guaranteed as it is with all women in the United States, so I think it really depends,” said the freshman New York lawmaker. More from her remarks:> And that’s really what the Hyde amendment is really about. The Hyde amendment isn’t about abortion per se. The Hyde amendment is truly about equality of healthcare and healthcare access for low income women and women of color and women that get caught in our mass incarceration system. And so the Hyde amendment is about income inequality and it’s about women’s healthcare in a system of income inequality. So I think that we need to repeal it.After maintaining support for the Hyde amendment throughout his decades-long career in politics, Biden reversed himself last month in response to pressure from abortion-advocacy groups.“If I believe health care is a right, as I do, I can no longer support an amendment that makes that right dependent on someone's ZIP code,” Biden said at a Democratic National Committee gala in Atlanta, citing the restrictive abortion bills recently passed in a number of southern states as the impetus for his reversal.Biden's high-profile reversal on the Hyde amendment prompted an outpouring of public statements from his 2020 Democratic primary opponents about the need to repeal the amendment, which has been added as a rider to federal spending bills in the decades since the 1973 Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision.

Vatican formally opens debate on married priests in Amazon -

Vatican formally opens debate on married priests in AmazonThe Vatican formally opened debate Monday on letting married men be ordained as priests in remote parts of the Amazon where priests are so few that Catholics can go weeks or months without attending a Mass. The call for study on the proposal was contained in the working document, released Monday, for an October meeting of South American bishops on the Amazon. The document, prepared by the Vatican based on input from the region, affirmed that celibacy is a gift for the Catholic Church.
