A Spin-Off Airplane Is Being Developed To Test An Open Fan Engine.

A look at the wheels atop this story will reveal something interesting about the single engine in this Airbus A380: It's being experimented with to assess the effectiveness of advanced open fan engine technology which, if successful, might allow the aviation industry to reduce carbon emissions by an amount equivalent to 20%. The project was revealed Tuesday via Airbus and CFM International at Farnborough Air Show right beyond London, a yearly exchange presentation displaying the most recent in aviation development. It's the furthest down the line development to be air-tried on the A380 "superjumbo," which has had blended fortunes lately. Creation of the much-adored plane was stopped in 2021 because of absence of interest. Existing airplane were grounded via carriers during the pandem...

A Judge Orders A Hearing On October Regarding The Lawsuit Against Elon Musk And Twitter.

A judge on Tuesday ruled that Twitter's lawsuit against Elon Musk over their $44 billion acquisition agreement should go to a five-day trial in October. The decision came at the end of the first hearing in the case over whether to expedite the proceedings. When it filed the suit last week, days after Musk moved to terminate the Twitter purchase deal, Twitter requested a four-day trial in September. Musk's legal team opposed the motion. Tuesday's hearing featured sharply worded arguments from both sides — including Twitter's lawyer at one point referring to Musk as a "committed enemy" — setting the stage for what is almost certain to be a contentious legal battle. Twitter's lead counsel William Savitt showed up cocked and locked against Musk toward the beginning of the consultation as he...

Bipartisan Group Of Senators Develops Strategy To Reform Election Laws In Light Of January 6 Attack.

Several bipartisan teams of senators reached a consensus that worked to prevent an illegitimate ratification procedure, which was the most significant reply to former White House chief Trump's campaign to overturn the results of the upcoming presidential race. The deal is the culmination of months of negotiation led by Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine and Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, along with an additional six Democrats and eight Republicans. The proposal unveiled Wednesday is split up into two bills. It will need 60 votes in the Senate to break any filibuster attempt, meaning that at least 10 Republicans would be needed to support any legislation. Announcement of the plan kicks off what is expected to be a challenging, months-long process to get the deal passed...

Babies Should Be Encouraged To Take In Human Milk And Parents Should Provide More Support, Guidance.

According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, families who breastfeed their children need support. This requires social and systemic changes when it comes to workplace access and feeding stigma. The pediatricians association's most recent guidance stressed the recommendation that infants be fed exclusively with human milk for the first six months of life before other nutritious foods are introduced. "Human milk is all a baby needs for the first six months of life," said Dr. Joan Younger Meek, lead author of the reports, written by the AAP section on breastfeeding. "Breast milk is unique in its nutrients and protective effects, and really quite remarkable when you look at what it does for a child's developing immune system." Meek is professor emeritus of clinical sciences at Florida Stat...

The Pro Secrets To Achieving Liquid Hair

Shiny, healthy hair never goes out of fashion. Liquid hair—as seen on Dakota Johnson, Jennifer Lopez, and Kim Kardashian—is the latest way to wear shine. This style is all about movement; it takes on a wet appearance like the surface of water. To create this look, start by giving hair a good wash with a shine-boosting shampoo and conditioner. Next, use a volumizing mousse (be careful not to use too much). Then blow dry each section with a medium-size round brush to add volume and lift at the roots. Finally, add shine spray for an extra boost of glossiness. To achieve a glossy, lustrous hair texture, Chris Appleton of Color Wow suggests using Dream Coat to prep the hair. “Using Dream Coat on freshly-washed damp hair will pave the way for an extra smooth blow dry so don’t hold back on app...

Netflix Finally Announced The Demands Of The Tufts. Now Comes The Hard Part.

Wall Street wasn't thrilled by the news about Netflix losing subscribers from April through June. But the investors didn't seem to grumble about the CNN. In fact, they were cheering. Netflix shares are up more than 6% in premarket trading on Wednesday after the company reported its latest results. Analysts say that while they were worried about Netflix's earnings, it could have been much worse. "It was a 'less bad news is good news' quarter," analysts at Bespoke Investment Group said in a note to clients. Separating it: Netflix had previously pushed assumptions as low as possible, projecting that it would lose 2 million endorsers last quarter in the wake of shedding 200,000 in the initial three months of the year. That made space for a positive shock. "We're looking at losing 1 mi...
