The US crash investigator has laid responsibility of the slow speed of the Asiana 777 that crashed at San Francisco International Airport on the weekend, killing two, with the pilots.Yesterday one of the Asiana pilots, responsible for monitoring the instruments, said he assumed that the auto throttle was maintaining the minimum speed required for safe flight. However, the US National Transportation Safety Board Chairman Deborah Hersman told a media conference that the pilots are required to also monitor their instruments during landing.“Let me be very clear the crew is required to maintain a safe aircraft. That means they need to monitor and we have a flying pilot and we have two other pilots who have a monitoring function,” said Mrs Hersman.“And one of the critical things that needs to be monitored on an approach to landing is the speed.” The instructor check captain, Lee Jung Min (49) who was assisting captain Lee Kang Kook, 46 being endorsed on the 777, told investigators that he assumed that the auto throttle – similar to cruise control in a car – was maintaining the required speed of 137knots (253km/hr).However, while the auto throttles were engaged, it is not clear as yet what mode they were in. The 777’s speed sank to just 103 knots (190km/hr) just before it hit the sea wall.The two pilots are supposed to work as a team with one flying the plane the other supporting with read backs on critical data, setting flaps and lowering undercarriage and reading checklists.Instructor captain Lee Jung Min also told investigators that he saw three red and one light on the Precision Approach Path Indicator (PAPI) indicating the plane was too low and called for more power. Then he told investigators he could see four red lights and noticed the airspeed was in the hatched area on the display – indicating too slow. Mrs Hersman also confirmed that a third pilot – a first officer – with over 4,500 hours of flying experience, was the observer pilot in the cockpit.Interestingly, and in a sign of what was to come, he said he could not see the runway or PAPI lights because the 777’s nose was too high.In a normal approach an observer in the cockpit can see both the runway and the PAPI lights if the attitude of the 777 is correct.A pilot from a plane waiting for take-off also noticed the very high angle of the 777’s nose, which would account for the rapid speed loss, if – as was the case – the engines were at idle.Automation has had an extraordinarily positive impact on improving aviation safety but it can be – and has been – a trap for the unwary.A number of years ago one crew of a 747 entered the heading they wanted to fly into the auto throttle, instead of the speed and the aircraft almost stalled after take-off.
View comments “J-Jay Alejandro and Matt Salem will be carrying the load for this season. With Issa Gaye joining us, that will be a good help also. And the bench will play a big, major role in our quest this season,” he said.But more than the manpower, what makes Jarin successful is his tried-and-tested system, something which he is hoping the Bulldogs have already bought into.“It takes a lot of time to really adapt to what you really want. But then, the only thing is I’m very fortunate personally because I inherited a group that has this good attitude — that has winning attitude, great culture. So you have to give credit to coach Eric Altamirano and his coaching staff for doing a great job,” he said.With that said, Jarin expects nothing less from this NU crew to bring in the energy for the full 40 minutes.“We’re gonna come in with a lot of energy. We’re gonna come in very competitive. We’re gonna come in all-out, and ready to surprise everybody.”ADVERTISEMENT For the complete collegiate sports coverage including scores, schedules and stories, visit Inquirer Varsity.

TORONTO – Any Canadian business that collects personal information about residents of the European Union —whether they’re tourists, students or online customers —risks maximum fines of $30 million or more if they violate a sweeping new EU privacy law that takes effect Friday.But privacy experts say many small- and mid-sized Canadian companies have only recently become aware that they may be covered by the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation, which was adopted by the 27-country regional government in 2016 with a two-year delay before enforcement starting on May 25, 2018.“Anybody that is collecting personal data from European residents — not only citizens — needs to comply with this,” Ale Brown, founder of Kirke Management Consulting, said in a phone interview from Vancouver.That’s equally true for a boutique fashion company selling purses, a university with students from a European country or a website using cookies or other information tracking features, she said. The GDPR could even affect small tourism-related business such as a resort or tour operator, because they have guests from all over the world.Besides having potentially hefty fines, the GDPR’s scope is also sweeping.It covers everything from giving people an opportunity to obtain, correct or remove personal data about themselves, to outlining rules for disclosing security breaches, to providing easily understood privacy policies and terms of service.One of the criticisms of GDPR has been that it could impose higher administrative costs on every company that wants to comply with the rules _ plus the potentially devastating impact of being hit with a fine for violating the law.Among those raising the alarm is Jake Ward, a spokesman for the recently formed Data Catalyst advisory council, which aspires to educate policy makers and businesses about the importance of the data-driven economy.“Now, I’m not saying that it’s a bad bill, because I don’t necessarily think it is,” Ward said in an interview.“But there could have been some steps taken to appreciate that the challenges of small businesses is different from the large.”For example, he said, a fine of four per cent of annual revenue would be very painful for a large company like Facebook or Google but “that’s a death sentence for a small company that gets hit with a GDPR fine.”While the EU intends for its fines to be a real deterrent to breaking the privacy law, it does take into account a number of factors, such as whether the infringement is intentional or negligent, the actions taken to reduce damage to the individuals, and preparations in place to prevent non-compliance.However, it may impose the biggest fine applicable in a particular case and the ultimate maximum fine could be either 20 million euros (C$30 million), or four per cent of a company’s annual global revenue, whichever is greater.Brown said many of her larger clients have been grappling with the legal and operational implications of the GDPR for 18 months or more, but others have only recently become aware that they need to be ready too.A top priority for them, she said, is to respond quickly if somebody requests access to their personal information or corrections to what’s on file about them _ both rights recognized by the GDPR.“Smaller businesses in Canada may fly under the radar for awhile, because the supervisory authorities are going to have to prioritize, but if somebody lodges a complaint — they’re going to come,” Brown said.“From a financial, from a legal and a reputational perspective, you really don’t want a European supervisory authority knocking on your door.”They can begin to protect themselves by having a process in place for dealing with GDPR issues, as soon as possible, Brown said.“Do an inventory of the data you have, understand why you have it and document it.”It’s also important to be able to locate the information, which may reside in multiple places such as an in-house system, on a “cloud” service on somebody else’s servers, or on a mobile device like a smartphone, said Matthew Tyrer, a senior manager at the Ottawa office of data protection company Commvault.The arrival of GDPR has been an opportunity for Commvault as well as any Canadian company that can demonstrate it has taken the effort to protect their customers’ personal data, Tyrer said.“It will just make you that much more competitive and these are things we should probably have already been doing in the first place, when you look at the basics.”Note to readers: This is a corrected story. A previous version incorrectly spelled the first name of Jake Ward.
New Delhi: A-62-year-old man was arrested for allegedly supplying ammunition illegally to criminals based in Delhi-NCR and Punjab, police said Saturday.

During interrogation, Amarlal disclosed that he used to get the ammunition at a cost of Rs 125-150 per cartridge from a known gun house owner at Shahbad in Ambala, Haryana, and sold them to criminals for Rs 200-250 per cartridge, Naik said. He has been supplying the ammunition illegally to criminals since 2002, the DCP said.

Tangier – Morocco is the only country in the Arab region that has managed tonticipate the “Arab Spring” by undertaking, in the last fifteen years, an unprecedented political openness at the time, said Friday in Tangier, Special Representative of the European Union for the Southern Mediterranean, Bernardino León Gross.This openness, which began during the reign of the late King Hassan II, was evidenced by a a political openness which led more pluralism, and this is what helped Morocco manage the new situation in the Arab region differently, he said.Regarding the position of the European Union vis-à -vis the events of the Arab Spring, Mr. Gross, who was speaking at the 3rd plenary session of the Medays Forum, said the EU seeks to support, politically and financially, the dynamics of change and the democratic reforms in the countries of the “Arab Spring”, in the framework of the respect for the national sovereignty of each country. In the same vein, the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State Philip Crowley called for the establishment of national strategies in the Arab Spring countries, for balanced relationships between the governors and the governed.Regarding the dynamics of change in his country, Mohamed Abdulghafar, diplomatic adviser to the King of Bahrain, noted that the “Bahraini Spring” began long before the Arab revolutions in 2011, thanks to a series of social and political reforms to meet the aspirations of the people.
OSU junior Shelby Hursh (19) during a game against Penn State on April 6 at Buckeye Field. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorTo obtain its sixth straight win, the No. 23 Ohio State softball team had to be carried by its pitching Wednesday evening, downing Dayton 1-0. OSU junior Shelby Hursh pitched a complete game with 13 strikeouts, taking her season record to 13-3.Redshirt junior outfielder Alex Bayne recorded the Buckeyes’ only hit of the game on her 18th home run of the year, bringing her within one of the program’s single-season home run record.“One swing of the bat can matter, so just being there for my team is important,” Bayne said. “And them helping me stay up is really awesome.”The Flyers went down in order in the top of the first inning, giving OSU the chance to grab an early lead on Bayne’s solo shot to left center field. Through the following two innings, both teams remained hitless, as Hursh and Dayton sophomore Manda Cash, who struck out nine through six innings, continued to best batters.“(Hursh) pounded the zone,” said OSU coach Kelly Kovach Schoenly. “We didn’t mix it up, and sometimes we try and finesse the outside corners, which is where we get into trouble with walks.”Dayton got its first runners aboard in the fourth inning with singles from freshman Kyle Davidson and junior Krista Gustafson but could not continue the streak to bring them home. The Flyers threatened the Buckeyes’ defense again in the fifth with a leadoff double from sophomore Kailee Budicin, and junior Katie Ryan reached first on a fielder’s choice with one out.OSU kept its composure and got out of the jam but went down in order in the bottom of the inning, leaving the game in a tight, one-run game.“Her wind-up was something we haven’t seen before, so we just had to zone in on every pitch,” Bayne said of the left-hander Cash.Again, the Flyers got their leadoff batter, junior Gabrielle Snyder, aboard on Hursh’s only walk of the game, but sophomore Becca Gavin caught her stealing on a snap throw to second base in the top of the sixth. Hursh added two more strikeouts to silence Dayton’s bats and give her opponents one last chance to score.“We haven’t been faced with a lot of low-scoring games, so I actually really enjoyed Shelby rising to not even allow a run,” Schoenly said.In the bottom of the sixth, Bayne headed to first base on her second walk of the day and stole her fifth base of the year, but seniors Cammi Prantl and Erika Leonard left her stranded. In the final inning, Dayton went down in order to give OSU a piece of momentum heading into this weekend.“I just want to keep a positive attitude for my team. If I don’t get it done in an at-bat, I know that I can make a difference next at-bat,” Bayne said. “Just embracing every moment.”Schoenly shared Bayne’s optimism of Wednesday’s close outcome, expressing pride in her players’ composure and confidence.“It kept them super hyped, and I think that’s going prepare them for down the road here,” the coach said.That road leads the Buckeyes to Ann Arbor, Michigan, to take on No. 3 Michigan in a decisive Big Ten weekend series. Friday’s game, the first of three, is set to begin at 6 p.m.
