    Aircraft with the same type of turbine as the one that exploded on a plane shortly after takeoff from Denver have been ordered grounded by US aeronautical authorities so they can inspect for cracks.

The measure severely affects United Airlines, which has 24 of these planes and is the only US airline to possess this type of turbine. “On Sunday we voluntarily removed 24 Boeing 777 aircraft powered by the Pratt & Whitney 4000 turbine...

    Facebook will reverse its ban on Australian news sources after reaching an agreement with Australian lawmakers, the company announced Tuesday. “We have come to an agreement that will allow us to support the publishers we choose to, including small and local publishers,” said Campbell Brown, Facebook’s vice president of news partnerships. “We’re restoring news on Facebook in Australia in the coming days.” Last week, the company banned Australian publishers and prohibited users from sharing links to their stories in response to a proposal that would have allowed news outlets to collectively bargain with Facebook and ultimately require the company to pay them. The media industry has been aggrieved in recent years by diminishing ad revenue, and has attributed the problem partially to consumers finding news on platforms including Facebook and Google rather than visiting news websites directly. Facebook said in an earlier statement that the law failed to recognize the “fundamental nature...

    New York Yankees News/Rumors: Will the Yankees go after Jack Leiter in July? By: William Parlee February 23, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees were graced for several years to have Al Leiter pitch for them.

    Sydney — Facebook said Tuesday it will lift a contentious ban on Australian news and pay local media companies for content, after a last-gasp deal on pending landmark legislation. Australia's Treasurer Josh Frydenberg announced a face-saving compromise that will see Google and Facebook plunge tens of millions of dollars into the struggling local news sector. In return the U.S. digital firms will, for now, avoid being subjected to mandatory payments that could cost them vastly more and create what they see as an alarming global precedent. Just hours after the compromise was unveiled, Facebook announced its first proposed deal with an Australian media company, Seven West, and was said to be pursuing commercial deals with other local news organizations. The company is expected to use the content to launch a dedicated news product in Australia later this year. Current state of technology and social media ......

    Everything happened from one day to the next. On February 15, the Facebook page of the National Institute for Historical Studies of the Revolutions of Mexico (INEHRM), attached to the Ministry of Culture, was functioning normally, sharing publications of past events. But, 24 hours later, the profile was silent, without making a single post. What happened? Facebook, Mark Zuckerbeg’s social network, decided to block the INEHRM page for a post that recalled the death of Osama bin Laden. In the post, the Institute included a photo of the Taliban leader. The INEHRM said in a statement on Wednesday, February 17, that the page had been blocked for “having violated community norms.” The suspension was first for a full day, the agency added. But then it went up to 30 days and eventually it went up to two months. This, supposedly, by recidivism. The Institute explained in the statement that...

    What a joke! Facebook users in Australia flocked to parody news content on Thursday after the social media giant blocked legit news from its platform. The 10 top-performing posts by Australian Facebook pages on Thursday were nearly all from satirical sites, according to data from CrowdTangle, a Facebook-owned social media insights tool. The list — first shared by the Twitter account @FacebookTop10AU — mostly contained posts from Australian comedic outlets The Chaser and Betoota Advocate. Standing at No. 5 was a post from Ozzy Man Reviews, the page of popular Australian YouTuber Ethan Marrell. All three comedy pages have previously appeared in the daily rankings of Facebook posts that racked up the most interactions, as tracked by the FacebookTop10AU account from Guardian Australia staffer Dave Earley. However, it doesn’t seem like the top posts have ever only come from comedy pages. The Facebook page for the Australian Broadcasting...
    By Elizabeth Culliford and Sheila Dang (Reuters) - Total web traffic to Australian news sites dropped by around 13% after Facebook Inc blocked their content on the social media platform this week, according to early data that underscores the outsize impact the U.S. company has on the local market. The data from New York-based analytics firm Chartbeat showed that a pickup in traffic to news sites from Google was outweighed by a significant slump in traffic from Facebook. "Unfortunately, Facebook's disappearance has resulted in a hit to publishers' traffic numbers: when Facebook traffic dropped off, overall Australian traffic did not shift to other platforms," a Chartbeat spokeswoman said. The Chartbeat data, which compared both domestic and foreign traffic to around 250 Australian news publishers on Wednesday before the ban to Thursday, provides some of the first tangible evidence of the impact of Facebook's move. The social media giant on Wednesday...

Beyond the pandemic and the imminent negative effects that these have on the music industry, the vocalist of The Killers now you must deal with a health problem – don’t worry, nothing to do with the coronavirus-. It turns out that the singer recently had an accident while riding a bicycle and things were more serious than they seemed because he will need surgery on one shoulder. Now, it will be necessary to see if this situation will delay in any way the plans that the group has for release a material in the middle of this year. Brandon Flowers. Photo: .

    Facebook is facing a boycott campaign over its controversial move to ban users’ access to news in Australia amid a pay dispute with publishers. Early Thursday, “Delete Facebook,” “Boycott Zuckerberg” and “Facebook We Need To Talk” began trending on other social networks as anger over the move spread around the globe. “If it is not already clear, Facebook is not compatible with democracy,” US Congressman David Cicilline of Rhode Island posted on Twitter. “Threatening to bring an entire country to its knees to agree to Facebook’s terms is the ultimate admission of monopoly power.” Facebook’s hardball move came Wednesday in response to Australia’s proposed new Media Bargaining law, which would require tech giants to share the ad revenue from news stories with the publishers that produce them. Facebook’s abrupt news ban surprised industry insiders, as it came just hours after Google announced a revenue-sharing deal with News Corp. British member of parliament...

    Listen to the latest episode of The Interview podcast here. Chris Stirewalt, a longtime politics editor and on-air analyst for Fox News, was fired last month. He hadn’t appeared on air in months after the 2020 election, when Fox News was the first network to call the key state of Arizona for Joe Biden, crushing the potency of Donald Trump’s attempts to declare victory. Stirewalt, a member of the Fox News Decision Desk, went missing from the network’s airwaves as Trump led a backlash against the network over the call. He urged supporters to abandon Fox for more pro-Trump outlets like Newsmax and OANN, which sold their viewers on the fantasy that he actually won the election before it was stolen from him by an international cabal of powerful Democrats. The campaign worked to some extent, as viewers ditched Fox in droves, driving the network to third in the...

    Yankees News: Domingo German posts cryptic message after Yanks grant him second chance By: Alexander Wilson February 18, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Yankees have graciously offered Domingo German a chance to ”resurrect” his career in 2021. German is on his way back from a lengthy suspension after violating the MLB’s domestic violence protocols two years ago, having missed the entire 2020 season and the end of the 2019 season. Justifiably, German served a lengthy suspension, but the team believes he is a changed man and has learned from his mistakes. Skipper Aaron Boone stated in his first press conference of the year that the Yankees would stand behind German and give him a second chance. “We know he’s paid a significant price from a career standpoint, really having missed a full season-plus now,’’ Boone said in a Zoom call on the day...
