The Cockpit: Where Custom & Tradition, Technology and Humans Collide
By : Charles Foerster - Saturday November 14, 2009
The Probable Cause summation at the end of an aircraft accident investigation report is the official determination of why an accident occurred. Common threads are pilot error and equipment failure. Beyond structural failure, the clash between technology and humans was evident in the case of an American Airlines flight at Cali, Columbia.1 The third factor is more difficult to identify and document. It is the failure of the system, a situation that does not allow for the full utilization of (...)

Comet, Airbus and Spaceplane: The Past, Present and Future of Commercial Aviation
By : William John Cox - Friday June 12, 2009
As commercial aviation becomes increasingly dependent upon computerized digital technology and less reliant upon hands-on human control, we have to consider the crash of Air France Flight 447 into the Atlantic Ocean, with the loss of all aboard, and other similar disasters in the light of our collective experience and expectations. The Comet First flown in 1949 and introduced into passenger service in1951, the Comet was the first pressurized, jet-propelled commercial aircraft. Powered by (...)

Making Smarter Cars Instead of Stupid Decisions
By : William John Cox - Monday December 1, 2008
When the Big Three CEOs recently descended on Washington in their fancy corporate jets with inflated egos and high hopes for a juicy piece of the government’s $8.6 trillion corporate welfare pie, they were sent home hungry to do their homework and to write an essay about how they plan to spend bailout funds. Undoubtedly, the executives will travel business class when they come back this week; they will each have a business plan in hand, and Congress will give them $25 billion of (...)

Train drivers threaten to derail the Merkel miracle

By Roger Boyes in Berlin Germans faced the prospect of summer holiday chaos yesterday as train drivers voted for an unlimited nationwide strike. It seems set to be the worst rail strike in 15 years and, along with a threat of industrial action by airline pilots, could bring the country to a standstill. The timing is bad news for Angela Merkel, the Chancellor, who had hoped to crown Germany’s economic recovery with the successful privatisation of Deutsche Bahn, the German rail (...)

Unfortunately 150+ people died in a Russian airliner crash today, but if there can be a silver lining, it is that this crash could help expose the lies behind 9/11, thus preventing another fake terror attack and a full scale WW III. Please send these photos to friends and media that still believe the official 9/11 story. The Russian jet left lots of wreckage and debris... according to the official gov’t story of 9/11 Flight 93 "plunged into the ground with such force that the plane (...)

The far-right in Ukraine are acting as the vanguard of a protest movement that is being reported as pro-democracy.

In a 2004 episode of Comedy Central’s animated series South Park, an election was held to determine whether the new mascot for the town’s elementary school would be a “giant douche” or a “turd sandwich.” Confronted with these two equally unpalatable choices, one child, Stan Marsh, refused to vote at all, which resulted in his ostracization and subsequent banishment from the town. Although this satirical vulgarity was intended as a commentary on the two (...)

If there is one universal question that haunts all human beings at some point in their lives, it is, “Why do we die?” Death, after all, is the great illogic. It ultimately claims all, the rich and the poor, the mighty and the small, the good and the evil. Death also has the capability to make most human pursuits—such as the quest for wealth, fame and power—vacuous and fleeting. Given this reality, I have often wondered why so many people are still willing to (...)

I’ve always been reluctant to answer this question for fear it will discourage conscientious and ethical people from pursuing careers in the legal profession—a (...)
