Boeing 737 Max: The FAA wanted a safe plane – but didn’t want to hurt America’s biggest exporter either
Even before the crashes of the Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 and Indonesian Lion Air Flight 610, there were concerns that the USA Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) was delegating too much safety oversight to Boeing itself.
The FAA allowed Boeing to handle much of the safety certification process, and Congress supported doing so – though recent events may be prompting lawmakers to change their tune. Reports have suggested that Boeing even excluded FAA technical experts from some of those decisions.
In addition, recent analyses suggest that Boeing made several misjudgments when it designed MCAS, the automated correction system, and hasn’t been fully forthcoming with both the FAA and airlines about how it worked. The airline has also been accused of providing inadequate training for pilots.

This may go some way then to explain parents’ perceptions of decreasing family cohesion and time together with their children, reported in earlier studies.

Many analysts and policymakers think this trend is here to stay…As technology researchers, however, we see a less rosy urban future.
When word broke that the massacre in New Zealand was livestreamed on Facebook, I immediately thought of Robert Godwin Sr. In 2017, Godwin was murdered in Cleveland, Ohio, and initial reports indicated that the attacker streamed it on Facebook Live, at the time a relatively new feature of the social network. Facebook later clarified that the graphic video was uploaded after the event, but the incident called public attention to the risks of livestreaming violence.
Two basic rules of media ethics apply to the coverage of terrorism: avoid giving unnecessary oxygen to the terrorist, and avoid unnecessarily violating standards of public decency.
Sharing this material can be highly problematic. In some past incidences of terrorism and hate crime, pictures of the wrong people have been published around the world on social and in mainstream media.
