    Boeing to upgrade software on Ethiopian Airlines crash jet
    Posted on: 2019-03-15 19:23:28

    Boeing will roll out a software upgrade for its grounded 737 Max aircraft in the coming weeks, following the Ethiopian Airlines crash that killed 157 people.

    The US planemaker expects the US Federal Aviation Administration to approve design changes to the software "no later than April 2019".

    Boeing began work on the upgrade after another 737 Max jet crashed in October.

    Countries across the world have grounded Boeing 737 Max 8 and 9 jets.

    An Ethiopian delegation has joined investigators in Paris tasked with uncovering the cause of the Boeing 737 Max crash on Sunday.

    France's Bureau of Inquiry and Analysis for Civil Aviation Safety (BEA) received the flight data and cockpit voice recorders on Thursday.

    The software Boeing plans to implement includes updates to the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System.

    Media captionTrump: Boeing 737 Max planes grounded

    This is the 737 Max's automatic anti-stalling system which is designed to keep the plane from stalling.

    It stops the aircraft from pointing upwards at too high an angle, where it could lose its lift.

    However, there have been incidents of pilots reporting that the system tipped the aircraft's nose downwards within minutes of take-off, forcing them to step in to stop the plane from dropping.

    The FAA has said that the Boeing 737 will not fly until a software update can be tested and installed.

    The BEA has taken charge of the Ethiopian Airlines aircraft's black boxes, but a spokesman said the first analyses could take between half a day and several days, depending on the boxes' condition.

    Rihanna could be visiting Kenya during her African Tour
    Posted on: 2019-03-15 19:01:46

    Rihanna’s management is looking to bring her to Kenya for a concert.

    This news was broken by Phat! Productions founding director Mike Strano.

    Mike shared a letter from Rihanna’s management, searching for a credible promoter who can take up the East African leg of the tour, specifically in Kenya.

    It read: “Rihanna is going on tour this fall. We are looking at September 1-October 31.”

    Mike said, “Yes, I believe Rihanna will get at least 2-3 shows in Africa, probably Johannesburg and Cape Town, as traditional markets for such A-listers. Then maybe Lagos.”

    “Since we put the word out this morning, we’ve had an inquiry from Kenya and Tanzania. We expect one from Uganda, as they’ve also hosted A-listers before.”‚Äč

    Mike says Kenyan fans should cross their fingers.

    Asked how easy it will be for a Kenyan promoter to take this up financially and technically, Mike said, “In every market, this would need to be a heavy sponsor-driven concert.”

    Promoters have their work cut out for them to satisfy Rihanna’s demands.

    Rihanna will be travelling with a party of 60 people. They will need local transportation to and from the hotel during the tour.

    For accommodation, they will need 20 single rooms in a five star and above, 10 single rooms and 15 double rooms in a four star.

    Their catering demands are addressed in the “Hospitality Riders”.

    We are yet to find out if any Kenyan promoter has been selected to be part of the tour.

    Mastanamma: India YouTube chef granny dies at 107
    Posted on: 2018-12-05 08:38:44

    One of the world's oldest YouTubers, 107-year-old Mastanamma from southern India, has died.

    She shot to fame on the internet for her cooking, which consisted of local and unusual dishes made from scratch.

    Her YouTube channel, Country Foods, has more than a million subscribers with hundreds of cooking videos, including one on her iconic watermelon chicken.

    The channel, managed by her grandson and his friend, launched in 2016 and became an instant hit.

    Born in the state of Andhra Pradesh, Mastanamma told BBC Monitoring she believed she was 106 years old in 2017 - although she has no birth certificate to prove it.

    In the videos, she would often sit in an open field in a remote village with minimal cooking equipment and cutlery.

    She would use her nails to peel vegetables, and an old Indian-style knife to chop them. Food was served in a traditional southern Indian banana leaf.

    BBC Marathi's Omkar Karambalekar, who met Mastanamma in 2016, says her style of cooking differed greatly from what is generally found on YouTube.

    He says she would burn the wood herself instead of using a cooking stove and liked cooking seafood because she could source it fresh from a nearby river.

    "Her completely unique take on traditional Indian cooking is what made her a star," he adds.

    Country Foods announced Mastanamna's death on Monday with a video on her last rites.

    Since then, many fans have taken to social media to praise her recipes and mourn her death.

    On social media, she was dubbed the grandmother with a toothless smile and best known for making the combination of watermelon and chicken go viral.

    Her rich eggplant curry and spicy catla fish curry are among her most famous dishes.
