There are about 400 MAX jets in service worldwide, inc

cluding about 97 in China. Wall Street analysts expect Boeing to spend about $1 billion to upda

te and install new software worldwide to prevent the MCAS system from repeatedly pointing the nose of the plane dow

n and to prevent the system from being activated by only one of two exterior sensors.

In the interview with the news website Axios, Muilenburg re

fused to say the MCAS system was a “red flag” during the MAX’s six

-year development and certification process. He said there were a “number of factors” involved in the fatal crashes.

Earlier this month, Muilenburg said he expected some MAX jets to return to commercia

l service by the end of the summer, but it could be months before the worldwide fleet returns to the air. Boeing said it has completed the software update for the MCAS syst

em and has tested it on 207 flights totaling 360 hours. The US Federal Aviation Administration has not said when its review of the updated software will be completed.

The US House of Representatives on Thursday passed the Senate’s version of the emergency border funding bill after House Speak

er Nancy Pelosi reversed course amid pressure from moderate Democrats to tackle the migrant surge along the US-Mexico border immediately.

The Democrat-controlled House voted 305 to 102. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said President Donald Trump supports the Senate bill.

“In order to get resources to the children fastest, we will reluctantly pass the Senate bill,” Pelosi wrote in a statement before the Thursday voting.

“The children come first,” Pelosi said. “At the end of the day, we have to make sure that the resources needed to protect the children are available.”

The sudden setback for Pelosi came amid heavy pressure from moderate Democrati

c lawmakers who are seen as most vulnerable at the 2020 U.S. general elections, local analysts said.

House Representative Josh Gottheimer, a Democratic leader of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, told Pelosi Thur

sday morning that he had rallied enough moderate Democrats to take down the rule on the amended House bill.

he Senate passed the 4.6-billion-US-dollar border fundi

The airlines haven’t disclosed how much they are seeking from Boeing, but some analysts peg industrywide losses at about $1 billi

Airlines seeking compensation include Air China, China Eastern Airlines, China Southern Airlines, Norwegian Air, Turkish Air, Ryanair, Flydubai and United Airlines.

“Reimbursement isn’t a technical problem,” John Cochran, president of Eaglemark, an aviation consulting firm and pro

fessor emeritus of Aerospace Engineering上海龙凤1314女神会所at Auburn University, told China Daily USA. “It’s a matter of first impression. Some of what Boeing pro

he Jobsehouse an 上海楼凤ir neighborhood were built

he Jobses’ house 上海楼凤and the others in their neighborhood were built by the real estate developer Joseph Eichler, whose company sp

awned more than eleven thousand homes in various California subdivisions between 1950 and 1974. Inspired by Frank

Lloyd Wright’s vision of simple modern homes for the American “everyman,” Eichler built inexpensive houses that featured floor-to-ceiling glass walls, open floor plans, e

xposed post-and-beam construction, concrete slab floors, and lots of sliding glass doors. “Eichler did a great thing,” Jobs said on one of our walks around the

neighborhood. “His houses were smart and cheap and good. They brought clean design and simple taste to lower-income people. They had awe

some little features, like radiant heating in the floors. You put carpet on them, and we had nice toasty floors when we were kids.”

Jobs said that his appreciation for Eichler homes instilled in him a passion for making nicely designed prod

ucts for the mass market. “I love it when you can bring really great design and simple capability to something that doesn’t cost much,” he

said as he pointed out the clean elegance of the houses. “It was the original

vision for Apple. That’s what we tried to do with the first Mac. That’s what we did with the iPod.”

Across the street from the Jobs family lived a man who had become successful as a real estate agent. “He w

asn’t that bright,” Jobs recalled, “but he seemed to be making a fortune. So my dad thought, ‘I can do that.’ He worked so hard, I

remember. He took these night classes, passed the license test, and got into real estate. Then the bottom fell out of the ma

rket.” As a result, the family found itself financially strapped for a year or so while Steve was in elementary school. His

India’s tallest rubbish mountain in New Delhi is on co

Hawks and other birds of prey hover around the towering Ghazipur landfill on the eastern

fringe of New Delhi, stray cows, dogs and rats wander at will over the huge expanse of smoking filth.

Taking up the area of more than 40 soccer pitches, Ghazipur

rises by nearly 10 meters a year with no end in sight to its foul-smelling growth.

According to East Delhi’s superintendent engineer Arun Kumar, it is already more than 65 meters high.

At its current rate of growth, it will be taller than the iconic Taj in Agra, about 73 meters high, in 2020.
