AirAsia flight has parallels with 2009 ocean crash

Four minutes and 23 seconds after the first alarms sowed panic and confusion over how to regain control of the aircraft, the plane slammed into the ocean, plummeting belly first at nearly 11,000 feet (3,350 meters) per minute. Above the Java Sea, the pilot of the AirAsia Airbus A320 told air traffic control he was approaching threatening clouds, but he was denied permission to climb to a higher altitude. During that time, deprived of autopilot, the panicking men flying the Air France flight took actions that made matters worse, including trying to carry out different maneuvers simultaneously from both sets of controls. [...] many have cautioned that pilots are often ill-equipped to take over when things go wrong. David Greenberg, a former Delta Air Lines executive who was hired at Korean Air to oversee pilot training and safety, said aircraft manufacturers, airlines and the FAA embraced the idea that automation could make flying safer, but more recently began to worry about the times when automation can't carry the day.

Texas club’s latest auction: A hunt for African elephants
mysanantonio.com / Sat, 17 Jan 2015 16:06:23 UT
DALLAS (AP) — A Texas hunting club again will auction off Saturday a chance to kill a large animal whose numbers are dwindling, a year after it faced international criticism over doing the same with a permit to shoot an endangered black rhino. The World Wildlife Fund, the world's leading conservation group, regards it as "vulnerable," a step below "endangered" and defined as "facing a high risk of extinction in the wild." Animal welfare activists plan to picket the convention hotel Saturday, but the club's Executive Director Ben Carter says elephants "in fact, are overpopulated in certain areas of Africa."
