Well yes, actually it is, because that can't happen.These so-called "near-misses" are still a long way off from being a collision.Planes tend to follow similar paths, called airways, which are like roads.Flights are directed at different altitudes, on different layers – called flight levels – which ensure that two crossing aeroplanes are never at the same altitude, and these bubbles are kept clear.Air traffic controllers also have radars and computer systems which help them keep planes far apart when descending, climbing, or changing route.Pilots, air traffic controllers, maintenance staff and everyone else involved in air transport do sometimes make mistakes but it is very rare.

Halpalentoyhtiö Ryanair on havainnut ongelman lennoillaan: säästöä tavoittelevat lomailijat laittavat taaperonsa raahaamaan matkatavaroita lentokoneeseen, jotta vanhemmat itse välttyisivät ylimääräisiltä matkatavaramaksuilta.Lehden mukaan yhä harvempi Ryanairin matkustaja laittaa laukkunsa ruumaan välttyäkseen ylimääräisiltä maksuilta.Ryanairin talousjohtajan Neil Sorahanin mukaan ilmiön taustalla vaikuttanee vuoden 2013 loppupuolella tehty muutos yhtiön matkatavarakäytäntöihin.Tuolloin yhden käsimatkatavaran sääntöä kevennettiin ja koneeseen on sittemmin saanut ottaa matkalaukun lisäksi pienen käsilaukun.Aiemmin kaikkien kädessä kulkeneiden tavaroiden on pitänyt mahtua yhteen ja samaan laukkuun – tax free -ostokset mukaan lukien.Enää alle yksi kuudesta matkustajasta maksaa ruumaan menevästä matkatavarasta Ryanairin lennoilla.

Under de senaste veckorna har bolaget gått som en raket på aktiehandelsplatsen First North, för att sedan rasa igen – utan att MyFC har presenterat några nämnvärda nyheter.Mellan 20 juni och 13 juli dubblades kursen – från 17,60 kronor till 36 kronor.På tisdagen innan börsen öppnat hade bolaget ett börsvärde på 850 miljoner kronor.MyFC har visserligen ett avtal med en kinesisk distributör på plats – värt 150 miljoner kronor över två år.Det kan såklart vara ett framtidshopp om att den första ordern bara är en i raden av stora försäljningsavtal.Enligt nätbanken Avanzas sparekonom Claes Hemberg finns det en annan förklaring.

alongside Didi, SoftBank is being linked with an investment in Uber, the U.S. firm that rivals those two aforementioned ride-sharing companies.A Wall Street Journal report claims SoftBank has been in touch with Uber with the apparent goal of buying a “multi-billion dollar stake” in the company.To date, Uber has raised close to $12 billion from investors, with its most recent valuation reportedly above $60 billion.Uber declined to comment on the report.SoftBank is yet to respond to a request for comment.Any investment is a wild scenario given that SoftBank has also backed Ola — Uber’s rival in India — but it isn’t something we haven’t heard before.

He applied data know-how to an age-old problem and revolutionized shavingTristan Walker—who’d scored business development gigs at Twitter and Foursquare even before finishing his MBA at Stanford in 2010—sought guidance from a retired packaged-goods executive.But then after some time, I started searching terms like ‘black men in the 1920s’ or ‘Harlem Renaissance.’ I looked at around 1,200 photos, and I didn’t find one with razor bumps on their faces, which I found uniquely interesting.”Unlike today, Walker learned, men of that era typically shaved with single-blade, double-sided razors.Walker’s introductory offering was Bevel, an online monthly subscription to shaving products that includes proprietary blades, shaving cream, priming oil and restoring balm for a little less than $30.Walker’s shift to ecommerce seemed like a risky career pivot.

Yelling at each other online is a beloved human tradition.Other animals like to shout at each other too, they just don’t have the luxury of a screen separating them.But of all the petty creatures in the animal kingdom, it turns out elephant seals might be most like humans when it comes to talking shit.A new study published on July 20 in Current Biology suggests that elephant seals are able to recognise the tone and rhythmic patterns of their rivals’ calls.A team of researchers spent weeks studying an elephant seal colony in Año Nuevo State Park, California, where they were able to identify the alpha male and record his call.The team changed the rhythm and timbre of the call, and presented two modified versions back to the seal colony, in addition to the original.

Businesses are beginning to see its value in a wide range of sectors, while a different report is released every day that instils a fear that AI will replace workers’ jobs.Simply put there is no hiding the explosion of AI and its applications; in the UK, Durham police have begun trialling a system that will classify suspects as low, medium or high risk and help officers review their sentence.AI will completely revolutionise businesses, but is crucially a force for goodWhile it’s true that AI will change how businesses operate, business leaders should consider it with optimism and positivity.PwC conducted a study and found that AI would help global GDP gain a huge $15.7 trillion, a 14% rise from 2016 to 2030.The detailed analysis found that the business impact of AI was so vast that productivity would improve dramatically.

A new set of Meizu Pro 7 images leaked earlier, revealing all the available color options of the upcoming flagship model that we expect to see by the end of the month.In these images, the device boasts a very premium feeling – especially in this grey color variant you can see above.The second blurred image (above again) reveals all of the available colors: red, black and gold – which seem as typical choices for a Chinese company nowadays, don’t you think?This isn’t the first time however that we see the gold variant as the specific color variant was spotted at TENAA recently.One more thing we can get from the blurred image is that the upcoming model will probably come with some type of mCharge compatibility, perhaps the Super mCharge that was unveiled by Meizu in this year’s MWC in Barcelona.We expect to know everything about the Meizu Pro 7 on July 26, when it is expected for official unveiling.

If you can't be bothered to go grocery shopping, ship them straight to your door.Austrian photographer Klaus Pichler bought this and around 50 other unusual products for his series This Will Change Your Life Forever.It's a surreal look at esotericism, a blanket term for beliefs that venture outside traditional religions.“As I did research, I found out the spirituality is just a layer of lacquer on a really capitalist business,” says Pichler.Esotericism began over a thousand years ago, including Gnosticism in the first century AD and the New Age movement in the 1970s.The latter coincided nicely with the rise of the internet in the decades that followed, and countless forums dedicated to the dark arts and spirituality quickly sprung up online.

Finding the right media content partner is central to how Marissa Freeman, chief brand officer at Hewlett Packard Enterprise, creates trusting relationships with clients who are in turn attempting to put down deep roots of credibility with their own customers.“When we speak in a shared voice, with stories that are relevant to them [clients] and important to us … the trust is already there,” said Freeman in an interview after a panel called “Anxiety in the Security 3.0 World: Trust Marketing Strategies in the Age if Distrust.” The media partners Freeman pointed to are Bloomberg Businessweek, Quartz, The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times.second installment of Adweek and Bloomberg Media’s quarterly “Marketing in An Interruptive World”“For a brand like ours, the trust economy is really about our customers telling their stories and stories about how we worked with them to achieve great things for their customers,” said Freeman, pointing to the technology work Hewlett Packard Enterprise has done with to not only crunch all the data necessary to make a movie, but to keep it secure as it travels the globe via distribution channels that can be unsafe for brands.

Unsurprisingly, the latest AI advancement in body camera technology comes no closer to increasing police accountability or officer transparency.On Monday, Motorola Solutions (the legal successor of the defunct Motorola, Inc.) announced a new partnership with machine learning startup Neurala to use object recognition AI in its Si500 body cameras.Neurala’s tech introduces advanced recognition capabilities they say could help officers find missing children or suspects at large.Civil libertarians were immediately concerned this would be used for face recognition, a long-dreaded event horizon for personal privacy where officers could immediately ascertain the identities of anyone they come across, at any time.As co-founder Max Versace explained, Neurala will train its software to recognise objects worn by either the suspect or missing person, not find their face.“You’re looking for a child in a blue shirt, red shoes and white pants and black hair, [the AI] can learn [that] and then push it to all the devices,” Versace told Gizmodo.

Microsoft Azure’s social accounts have put up what would have been a boring Node.js training ad if not for what it used to include in the image: a never before seen device that immediately calls to mind a foldable tablet or smartphone.Give how the post remains online, it’s possible Microsoft didn’t “accidentally” leak that image.It’s more possible that Microsoft intentionally created a Photoshopped image for fun, which might also be a cruel joke for the Windows Phone loyal.Like any other tech company, including Apple, Microsoft has dreams and even patents for foldable devices.Actually, it almost went in that direction before anyone else, until it decided it was too soon for the world to have a Courier tablet.Microsoft remains quiet on that front but it never really gave up on the idea.
