AirlineRatings.com the world’s only safety and product rating website has announced its top ten safest airlines for 2013 from the 448 it monitors.Top of the list is Qantas which has a fatality free record in the jet era (since 1951). Making up the top ten with seven stars for safety and in- flight product are in alphabetical order: Air New Zealand, All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Emirates, Etihad Airways, Eva Air, Royal Jordanian, Singapore Airlines and Virgin Atlantic.AirlineRatings.com’s rating system takes into account a number of different factors related to audits from aviation’s governing bodies and lead associations as well as government audits and the airline’s fatality record.Of the 448 airlines surveyed 137 have the top seven-star safety ranking, but almost 50 have just three stars or less.Over its 93 year history Qantas has amassed an extraordinary record of firsts in safety and operations. In 2008 in its successful defence, to the British Advertising Standards Association, of its claim that it is the world’s most experienced airline Qantas was able to list almost 30 notable industry leading achievements.These included the war time operation from Perth, Australia of what was then, and still is, the world’s longest air route by elapsed time from Perth to Colombo, Sri Lanka giving passengers an award dubbed “The Order of the Double Sunrise.”This service, using Catalina Flying Boats, took about 28 hours non-stop and was performed in radio silence to avoid the Japanese. When the flights ended on July 18 1945, the aircraft had made 271 crossings and had carried 858 passengers more than one million miles without a single accident.Qantas was the first international airline to operate around world service with its Lockheed Super Constellations in 1958 and the first to take delivery of the Boeing 707 outside the US in 1959.The Australian airline was also amongst the first to pioneer technical breakthroughs such as long range operations for twin-engine planes and the development of the Future Air Navigation System. Qantas was a leader in using the Flight Data Recorder to monitor plane and later crew performance in 1962. Only six parameters were available unlike today’s FDRs which monitor 500 on the most advanced planes.Qantas has also been a leader in a wide variety of recent cockpit innovations such as automatic landings using Global Navigation Satellite System as well as precision approaches around mountains in cloud. Dubbed GLS and RNP these technologies are cutting edge.Qantas was the lead airline with real time monitoring of its engines across its fleet using Satellite Communications, which has enabled the airline to detect problems before they become a major safety issues.And 2013 was the safest for flying since 1945, with only 269 deaths from 29 accidents.According to the Aviation Safety Network the results are well below the 10-year average of 32 accidents and 719 fatalities.The worst accident was the crash of a Tatarstan Boeing 737-500 operating Flight U9-363 from Moscow to Kazan, which killed all 44 passengers and six crew aboard. The 737-500 was on its second approach to land in strong winds on November 17 and was about to go around for a third time when it hit the runway and exploded in flames.Tatarstan, a small regional airline from central Russia has not completed the critical International Air Transport Association Operational Safety Audit (IOSA). Airlines that have completed IOSA have a safety record 77 per cent better than those which have not.On October 17, 49 passengers and crew lost their lives when a Lao Airlines ATR72 crashed while on approach to Pakse in Laos. Flight QV301 left Vientiane almost four hours late because of bad weather at the destination airport. It took off at 2.45pm local time and on descent to land hit a severe rain squall associated with tropical storm Nari which had battered the Philippines.Like Tatarstan, Lao Airlines was only rated as a four-star (out of seven) airline by AirlineRatings.com in part because it had not completed IOSA. Other major airlines in SE-Asia that have not completed IOSA include; Air Bagan; Cebu Pacific; Lion Air and Merpati Air.The most miraculous escape was for the 304 passengers and crew that walked away from the spectacular crash of the Asiana Boeing 777 at San Francisco International Airport in July. Only three passengers died, when the Boeing 777 hit the runway sea wall and flipped over.center_img Lowest Ranked Airlines  One StarKam Air                                Scat                                        Bluewing Airlines                       Two StarAfghan Airways               Daallo Airlines                Eritrean Airlines              Lion Air                         Merpati Airlines              Susi Air                         Air Bagan                      last_img read more

As Technorati Falters, PostRank Launches New Blog Ranking Tools

Posted on by

first_imgDisclosure: PostRank is a sponsor of the forthcoming ReadWrite Real-Time Web Summit. It’s also one of our favorite services on the web. Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting marshall kirkpatrick Tags:#news#web Blogsearch data has been a consistent problem for PostRank, both Technorati and Google Blogsearch data has been inconsistent for the company. PostRank says it will be launching its own trackback discovery service shortly.While some meme-tracking services struggle with niches where blogs don’t heavily link to eachother, PostRank says that by tracking multiple forms of user interaction it has captured data that closely resembles what can be found from services tracking absolute web traffic to individual sites.Last month PostRank released a new analytics tool that displays social media engagement on top of Google Analytics data. The new APIs will allow 1000 requests a day for free for noncommercial use, commercial licenses are available as well. Social media analytics firm PostRank has released two Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that will alow developers to track reader engagement in any group of blogs or around any single link with just 15 seconds of latency. Technorati’s announcement last week that it is scaling back and changing its blog ranking activities, and putting new emphasis on in its blog advertising network, prompted PostRank to launch their APIs now.The same API used for ranking by the AdAge 150 and the Atlantic Monthly’s new political blogger leaderboard is thus now generally available. Determining the most-closely watched bloggers on niche topics is something a lot of people want to do for a wide variety of reasons – when that determination can be made programatically you can jump into the center of a conversation quickly.PostRank looks at any RSS feed it’s given and scores all the items in those feeds for number of comments left, inbound links, times bookmarked in Delicious, being shared on Twitter and several related metrics. The company says it has agreements with many services to have data pushed to them and queries the Delicious endpoint themselves every 1 second, for example.Some good sample lists are Postrank CTO Ilya Grigorik’s favorite a href=”http://www.postrank.com/user/igrigorik/topic/cloud”>cloud computing blogs or the general list of top design blogs. The new APIs will make it easy to build lists around any topic or group and display that data on other sites.center_img 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts last_img read more

New York Post Under Scrutiny For Ridiculous Article Title

first_imgNew York Post article says Johnny Manziel receiver admits to randomly killing jogger.new york post title johnny manzielIt’s become common practice for online publications to beef up article titles in an attempt to lure in readers. What you’ll see below is a little beyond the realm of what’s considered acceptable, however.Monday, reports surfaced that former Texas A&M wide receiver Thomas Johnson – who played for the Aggies for one year – had admitted to murdering a man in Dallas on a jogging trail. Tuesday morning, the New York Post went with a very questionable title for its version of the story.I mean, come on @nypost. pic.twitter.com/DEsvuU9DyU— Barrett Sallee (@BarrettSallee) October 13, 2015Johnny Manziel, obviously, has nothing to do with the story.So far, the publication hasn’t backed down and changed its title.

Crown wants 2 years for man who took girl to US to

Posted on by

first_imgCRANBROOK, B.C. — A special prosecutor is recommending up to two years in prison for a former polygamous leader in Bountiful, B.C., convicted of removing a child from Canada to marry a member of his fundamentalist sect in the United States.Peter Wilson said that as an ex-bishop of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, James Oler is culpable for facilitating the directives of church leader and prophet Warren Jeffs, who ordered him to bring the underage child to the U.S. to be married in 2004. Wilson said aggravating sentencing factors against Oler included the girl’s age at the time, his position of trust and his position as a bishop and religious authority in the community.“He occupied the highest priesthood office in the community of Bountiful because he was the bishop and that office made him directly answerable to Warren Jeffs,” said Wilson, in front of Justice Martha Devlin in Cranbrook Supreme Court.During Oler’s trial, court heard that church records seized by American law enforcement indicated that Jeffs called Oler on June 23, 2004, and ordered him to bring the 15-year-old girl to the U.S. to be married.A trial witness, whose identity is protected by a publication ban, was also named by Jeffs in the directive to come to the U.S. and be married as a child bride.The witness testified she travelled with two adults to the United States on June 24, 2004, crossing into Idaho at the Porthill crossing south of Creston and pulling into a rest area shortly after. She went into the woods to relieve herself, and when she returned, another van containing Oler and the 15-year-old girl had arrived.All but one piled into the newly arrived van and headed to Cedar City, Utah, and later to Mesquite, Nev.Church records indicate 18 marriages took place on June 25, as the witness, the 15-year-old girl, and Oler himself were all married in separate ceremonies.Wilson suggested that the judge could exercise her discretion to consider Oler’s conduct in the removal of the trial witness even though she wasn’t included in his indictment.“It’s my submission that no unfairness to Mr. Oler will result in the event you choose to exercise your discretion to consider his role in the removal of (the witness) from Canada,” Wilson argued.However, Devlin questioned whether she could be satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Oler was guilty of all the same elements of the child removal offence involving the trial witness, given that Oler may not have known she was under 16 at the time.Oler does not have a lawyer. Joe Doyle, who is serving as a friend of the court to ensure a fair trial, suggested a sentencing range between six to 18 months in prison, drawing parallels to an earlier ruling against Brandon James Blackmore and Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore.They were convicted and sentenced for the same child removal charge after being ordered to bring a 13-year-old girl to marry Jeffs. Brandon James Blackmore was sentenced to 12 months in jail, while Emily Ruth Gail Blackmore was given a seven-month jail term.Oler, however, was acquitted because the presiding judge was unable to determine, based on the trial evidence, whether he did anything within Canada’s borders to arrange the girl’s transfer to the U.S. The acquittal was successfully challenged by the Crown and a new trial was ordered by the B.C. Court of Appeal.Devlin found Oler guilty of the child removal charge in a new trial that was held in Cranbrook earlier this year.The court has set Aug. 29 as a tentative date for sentencing.The court heard that Oler is living in isolation in Alberta after being stripped of his bishop’s appointment and excommunicated from the Bountiful community nearly a decade ago for participating in legal proceedings examining the constitutionality of Canada’s polygamy laws.He was also charged and convicted of polygamy alongside Bountiful leader Winston Blackmore and sentenced to three months house arrest in 2018.(Cranbrook Daily Townsman)Trevor Crawley, Cranbrook Daily Townsman, The Canadian Presslast_img read more
