Airfrance Plane Crash

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on June 2, 2009

An Air France plane that carried 228 people on board was believed to have gone down into the Atlantic Ocean on Monday after crashing some heavy turbulence on a flight from Rio de Janeiro to Paris.

Air France said the Airbus flew into stormy weather four hours after its scheduled take-off from the Brazilian city and shortly afterwards sent an automatic message reporting electrical faults. Company spokesman Francois Brousse said several of the plane’s mechanisms had malfunctioned, preventing it from making contact with air traffic controllers.

“It is probably a combination of circumstances that could have led to the crash,” he said. The airliner might have been hit by lightning, he said. The Brazilian air force said the plane was far out over the sea when it went missing. Military planes took off from both Brazil and Africa to hunt for it.

Flight AF 447 left Rio de Janeiro on Sunday at 7 p.m. (2200 GMT) and had been expected to land at Paris’s Roissy Charles de Gaulle airport on Monday at 11:15 a.m. (0915 GMT). The carrier said 216 passengers were on board, including seven children and one baby, and 12 crew members.

Air France said the pilots were highly experienced. Tearful relatives and friends were led away by airport staff after they arrived at Roissy expecting to greet the passengers. About 20 relatives of passengers on board the flight arrived at Rio’s Galeao airport on Monday morning seeking information after hearing news of its disappearance.

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on April 4, 2009

A certain gunman opened fire at an immigration services center in downtown Binghamton on Friday, killing 13 people before authorities came and found him dead, officials said.

A law enforcement official said the body of the man believed to be the gunman was found in an office of the American Civic Association building. The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the details of an ongoing hostage situation and was talking on condition of anonymity.

The gunman barricaded the rear door of the building with his car before entering through the front door, firing his weapon, the official said. It wasn’t clear whether the gunman was included in the number of dead provided by the governor.

The Binghamton Press & Sun Bulletin reported that citizenship classes had been scheduled Friday at the center. The Binghamton SWAT team responded, and the FBI was sending hostage negotiators and an evidence response team to the scene. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives was also sending agents to Binghamton.

Indications were that the shooter was a young male, the law enforcement official said. The American Civic Association is an organization that helps immigrants in the Binghamton area with naturalization applications, according to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services.

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

jer1Tragedy strikes again to a fiery plane which has crashed down in Upstate New York. They were almost there but unfortunately went into a tragic landing nose-dived into a house in suburban Buffalo.

Historically, this was the nation’s first fatal crash of a commercial airliner in 2 ½ years. 49 people aboard and a person in the home were lost after the deadly landing.

According to the witnesses they heard the twin turboprop aircraft sputtering before it went down in light snow and fog around 10:20 p.m. Thursday about five miles from Buffalo Niagara International Airport. Continental Connection Flight 3407 from Newark, N.J., came in squarely through the roof of the house, its tail section visible through flames shooting at least 50 feet high.

“The whole sky was lit up orange,” said Bob Dworak, who lives less than a mile away. “All the sudden, there was a big bang, and the house shook.”

“Continental extends its deepest sympathy to the family members and loved ones of those involved in this accident,” Continental chairman and CEO Larry Kellner said in a statement. “Our thoughts and prayers are with all of the family members and loved ones of those involved in the flight 3407 tragedy.”

The 9/11 widow on board was identified as Beverly Eckert. She was heading to Buffalo for a celebration of what would have been her husband’s 58th birthday, said Mary Fetchet, a 9/11 family activist.

Octuplets’ Finances May Depend on Government Fund

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on February 13, 2009

dona5A single and an employed mom of her 14 children could be depending financial assistances from the taxpayers of California. The situation maybe done by compounding the public furor in a state already billions of dollars in the red.

For the past years Nadya Suleman had been raising her six other children with the help of $490 a month in food stamps, plus Social Security disability payments for three of the youngsters. The public aid will almost certainly be increased with the new additions to her family.

“It appears that, in the case of the Suleman family, raising 14 children takes not simply a village but the combined resources of the county, state and federal governments,” Los Angeles Times columnist Tim Rutten wrote in Wednesday’s paper. He called Suleman’s story “grotesque.”

Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is struggling to close a $42 billion budget gap by cutting services, declined through a spokesman to comment on the taxpayer costs associated with the octuplets’ delivery and care.

Some of the disability money was spent on in vitro fertilizations, which was used for all 14 of her children, Suleman said. She said she also worked double shifts at the mental hospital and saved up for the treatments. She estimated that all her treatments cost $100,000.

This situation is rare, for the women around the globe please be reminded that it is not that easy to wish for lots of babies by drinking something to push through it. Think wisely to avoid into getting some financial trouble.

Octuplets Born

Posted by Data Locker - A Pot of Information on January 28, 2009

dona10Never in my entire life had I heard that one mother has borne eight babies at the same time. What an unbelievable delivery done by the mother. Personally this is the first time I heard it but according to records this is already the second time in the history.

What’s surprising about this situation is that the Doctors had only seen seven babies through the sonogram not knowing that there would be eight. The six boys and two girls, who weigh between 1.8 pounds and 3.4 pounds, were delivered by cesarean section in just five minutes by a team of 46 doctors and nurses in four delivery rooms.

All these babies are breathing on their own upon given birth. They were nine weeks premature and is said to stay in the hospital for two months to make sure their safe. Doctors say the mother is resting comfortably and will be out of the hospital in a week.

These six boys and two girls weigh between 1 pound, 8 ounces, and 3 pounds, 4 ounces, doctors at Kaiser Permanente Bellflower Medical Center said. The hospital had scheduled a Caesarean section for seven babies, but doctors were surprised when an eighth came out at 10:48 a.m.

“She’s a very strong woman, so she probably will be able to handle all eight babies,” said Dr. Mandhir Gupta, a neo-natologist who cared for the infants.

Hospital officials would not release any information about the mother, including her name, condition or whether she used fertility drugs. They did, however, say she planned to breast feed all of them.

Forty-six hospital staff and four delivery rooms were used for the latest octuplets’ births. After one baby was born, staff rushed the newborn into another room and waited for the next, the hospital said. But despite weeks of preparation, doctors did not expect the eighth child.

The case was very rare. It would require much of the responsibility of the parents to take good care of the babies. God bless their one big instant family.
