“I’ll never forget the sound. The sound of metal crunching,” says George Larson, a passenger on Indian Airlines Flight 440 from Chennai (Madras) to New Delhi in 1973. It was 22:30 – pitch black outside. A storm was raging, and the plane was flying low. The rear end slammed into the ground first. Larson was thrown from his seat. Meanwhile, the plane kept moving. Electric cables sparked and fellow passengers screamed as the fuselage began to split in half. The next thing Larson knew he was awake, lying on his back on some wreckage. He tried to move his legs, but he was stuck. Soon there was an explosion as the heat ignited fuel tanks by the wings. Source: BBC - Future - What not to do in a disaster

Airbus is preparing to roll out a novel A380 wingtip design to rally support for the world's largest passenger jet by improving its fuel efficiency, according to a prototype seen on Saturday.A Reuters photographer got up close to the roughly three-meter-high split wingtip which has been installed on an A380 belonging to the Air and Space Museum at Le Bourget airport, where the Paris Airshow opens on Monday.It confirms an upgrade reported by Reuters and Usine Nouvelle on Friday. Airbus declined comment.Drag-reducing 'scimitar' split wingtips have been used on Boeing's medium-haul Boeing 737 MAX, but never on a jetliner the size of the A380, which has a 79.9-metre (262-foot) wingspan.The aircraft sporting the prototype 'winglet' will be towed out to join others on display at the June 19-25 air show, giving airlines a glimpse of an improvement that Airbus hopes will turn around weak sales of its flagship double-decker.

Good news has been in short supply the last 12 months, but for nervous fliers there's one ray of light: 2016 was one of the safest years in aviation history.Despite some high-profile accidents, the number of airplane crashes has in fact been steadily declining over the last 20 years.And for those still keen to analyze the field, there's the annual announcement of AirlineRatings.com's safest airline award.This year the aviation analyst named 20 leading carriers as the world's best at ensuring passenger protection.

HUMANITARIAN

At this critical juncture in the conflict in the Syrian city of Aleppo, the international medical humanitarian organization Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) today expressed outrage over the unremitting violence directed against civilians and the unresponsiveness of those who can stop it.MSF called on all warring parties to abide by their obligation to protect civilians in both the besieged areas and in areas newly taken over by the Syrian government.All negotiations to secure access by the United Nations (UN) and other groups—including MSF—to provide humanitarian assistance in the besieged areas of eastern Aleppo have failed. In most cases, people were not provided the chance to flee.It has also proven impossible to evacuate patients, resupply hospitals, and provide much needed aid to those who remain trapped. All parties concerned were and are responsible for this failure, MSF said. Source: Syria: All Sides Must Spare Civilians Trapped in Aleppo | MSF USA

The only specialised paediatric hospital in besieged east Aleppo has come under attack for the second time since airstrikes resumed on 15 November, destroying three floors and leaving it out of service. Three other hospitals have also taken direct hits, resulting in casualties among staff and patients and leaving two key surgical hospitals and the largest general hospital out of service.“This is a dark day for east Aleppo. The severity of the bombing has inflicted huge damage on the few hospitals working around the clock to provide medical care,” says Teresa Sancristoval, Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) emergency coordinator. “The attacks have destroyed entire hospitals, electric generators, emergency rooms and wards, forcing them to stop all medical activities. It is not only MSF that condemns indiscriminate attacks on civilians or civilian infrastructure, including hospitals, but also humanitarian law. The message is simple and I don´t know how to say it any louder: stop bombing hospitals.” Source: Syria: Multiple direct and indirect hits on hospitals in east Aleppo in the last 48 hours | Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) International

Dozens of children who had to spend the night in a partially demolished migrant camp in Calais were loaded onto buses Friday to be taken to temporary accommodation elsewhere in France, aid groups said. Having failed to register with French authorities this week, they had no right to access a shipping container complex at the site where 1,500 registered children are staying while they wait to see if they can go to Britain. Confusion continued into Friday afternoon, when buses finally arrived outside the camp to pick up the stranded minors, as well as some adults who also remained, charity Care4Calais said.It wasn't clear whether all the unregistered children have now left The Jungle, nor where they were being taken.

Kewon Potts was beaming broadly as he flung open the door to his “fitting room” and stepped out in a new suit that perfectly fit his broad torso. “OOOOHs” and “AAAAHs” greeted the Navy vet, who hopes to get back into the job market after some tough years since leaving the military.  “Looking sharp, man!” someone called. The “fitting room” from which Potts stepped forth was actually an office of Save-a-Suit, a nonprofit foundation in Connecticut that was giving free suits, dress shirts and ties..

WHY & TRUST

Simon Sinek (@simonsinek) created a simple model, The Golden Circle, that codifies what makes the most inspiring people and organizations so successful and influential.

Through his struggle to rediscover his excitement about life and work, he made some profound realizations and began helping his friends and their friends to find their “why” — at first charging just $100, person by person.

I BELIEVE

I believe that all people have the same rights and have the same values as everyone else on this earth. It is therefore neither qualifying nor disqualifying to be related to a special group or to have a special interest. I do not judge people on age, family status, race, religion, political affiliation, trade union membership, ethnic origin, health information or sexual orientation, of any kind. I am neutral.

You will find articles on this website made by me or by friends and colleagues who share their beliefs. If an extern article has been changed, or an existing article sounds like it’s not following my neutrality beliefs, and we see the article on our website, we will take down this article the same second we know this.
I kindly ask you to let us know if some of our articles offend you or you feel that the point of view is not following our neutrality idea. I do feel respect for “the freedom of speech”, but we also believe in showing respect for other people.

“We all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children’s futures. And we are all mortal.”
