'Never give up,' Swedish teen tells Iowa climate activists after U.N. summit 'failure'

'Never give up,' Swedish teen tells Iowa climate activists after U.N. summit 'failure'Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg on Friday urged her supporters to “never give up” in demanding urgent steps to fight climate change after world leaders failed to act decisively at a recent United Nations summit. “As we all know, the UN Climate Action Summit was a failure,” the 16-year-old Swede told a cheering crowd just off the campus of the University of Iowa. Thunberg’s campaign began as a lonely vigil outside the Swedish parliament but rapidly grew into a global movement of activists demanding urgent action on climate.

'Lock Her Up!' but no 'Send her Back!' chant at Trump rally in OhioPresident Donald Trump on Thursday briefly renewed his criticism of four minority Democratic congresswomen at his first rally since controversy erupted when a crowd at a rally last month broke into a chant of “Send her back” about a U.S. lawmaker who immigrated to the United States from Somalia. “While Republicans are working every day to build up our country, the rage-filled Democrat Party is trying to tear America apart. “No one has paid a higher price for the far-left’s destructive agenda than Americans living in our nation’s inner cities,” he said.

'Pitch up, pitch up': Final moments of Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max jet before crash

'Pitch up, pitch up': Final moments of Ethiopian Airlines Boeing 737 Max jet before crashA pilot on the Ethiopian Airlines flight which crashed three weeks ago was heard saying “pitch up, pitch up” just moments before the disaster, the Wall St Journal has reported.  The conversation happened when the plane was just 450ft (137m) off the ground as the aircraft begun to point downwards, according to the paper.  The plane's radio reportedly died moments after the comment was captured. All 157 people on board were killed when the Boeing 737 Max crashed.  The plane’s anti-stalling system, which sees its direction automatically righted if a sensor picks up the aircraft is tilting up too far, has been blamed for the disaster.  The investigation is on-going and no official cause for the crash has been made public.  Forensic experts work at the crash site of an Ethiopian airways operated by a Boeing 737 MAX aircraft Credit: TONY KARUMBA / AFP The Wall Street Journal reported on Friday that investigators have determined that the flight-control system on an Ethiopian Airlines jet automatically activated before the aircraft plunged into the ground on March 10. The preliminary conclusion was based on information from the aircraft's data and voice recorders and indicates a link between that accident and an earlier Lion Air crash in Indonesia, the newspaper said. Boeing and the Federal Aviation Administration declined to comment on the report. Also on Friday, The New York Times reported that the Ethiopian jet's data recorder yielded evidence that a sensor incorrectly triggered the anti-stall system, called the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System, or MCAS.  Once activated, the MCAS forced the plane into a dive and ultimately a crash that killed everyone on board, the newspaper said. Boeing is facing mounting pressure to roll out a software update on its best-selling plane in time for airlines to use the jets during the peak summer travel season.

Boeing is also seeing its own expenses rise, although it would not disclose how much it is costing the company to make the software fix and also train pilots how to use it. Cowen Research analysts say a "very rough guess" is that Boeing will pay about $ 2 billion after insurance to fix the plane, pay crash victims' families and compensate airlines that had to cancel flights. Most Wall Street analysts are betting that the planes will be flying again in less than three months, while noting that it could take longer in countries that plan to conduct their own reviews of Boeing's upgrade instead of taking the word of the U.S. regulator, the Federal Aviation Administration.
