Boeing CEO says 737 MAX software update working as designed

Boeing CEO says 737 MAX software update working as designedBoeing Co’s chief executive said on Thursday that a software update designed to prevent disasters like two recent fatal crashes involving its 737 MAX is working, with about two-thirds of the fast-selling jetliner’s customers having seen the fix in simulator sessions. In his first public speech since an Ethiopian Airlines 737 MAX crash that killed all 157 aboard on March 10, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said additional tests are expected in the coming weeks as the planemaker works to regain the confidence of its customers and the flying public. Boeing, fighting its biggest crisis in years, has been developing an upgrade to software that is under scrutiny in the Ethiopian Airlines accident and a Lion Air 737 MAX crash that killed all 189 on board on Oct. 29.

This Athleta Sports Bra Was Specifically Designed for Women Who Have Had a Mastectomy

[brightcove:5522509904001 default]

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and a bevy of wellness brands are giving back by donating some or all proceeds from their products to breast cancer research and charities. And that’s a good thing, considering an estimated 252,710 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the U.S. this year alone, according to the American Cancer Society.

One such brand using their platform to raise awareness and give back: Athleta. In addition to donating to ROW (Recovery on Water), a rowing team for breast cancer patients and survivors, the fitness apparel company recently introduced the Empower Bra ($ 54; athleta.com). This new athletic supporter ranges in size from XXS to XL and is specifically designed for women who have undergone single or bilateral mastectomy.

To buy: Empower Bra ($ 54; athleta.com)

The Empower bra was developed with input from two-time breast cancer survivor Kimberly Jewett (who also models the bra on the brand's website) and wear-tested by several other breast cancer patients. You’ll still find the typical features any good sports bra should have, such as sweat-wicking material, a comfortable fit, and on-trend style.

But the design also takes into consideration the specific needs of women who have had a mastectomy. The front-zip style with hook and eye closure makes it easy to get on and off, while the fabric is soft and free of wires so as not to irritate post-operation skin. Also good: extended mesh pockets to accommodate most post-surgery prosthetics and adjustable straps for a perfect fit.

Making sure all women feel comfortable and supported in their skin? Now that's what we call empowering.
