ERA: New European Commission lacks vision for airline industry

European Union (EU) elections last year led to a swathe of new commissioners taking office in November, with the transport portfolio going to Michael Cramer, a Green politician from Germany. The Commission is the policy-originating body of the European Union. Cramer, whose previous accomplishments include establishing a 160 km cycle path in Germany—with slogans that include “Change transport, not the climate”—has already refused to meet with several trade associations representing the transport industry, ERA representatives said at a media briefing in London Tuesday.

Transport was not featured among the priorities set down by European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker, noted EU policy analyst James Sibley of political intelligence organization De Havilland EU.

Although it has been a very long time since anyone seriously believed in Martians or feared a HG Wells-style war of worlds, the orbiters and landers that have probed the Red Planet since the 1960s have left open the most fascinating question of all, is there – or if not was there ever – life on Mars? As enticing as answering that question might be, however, it has been more than 40 years since the last Apollo mission to the relatively close Moon. NASA’s follow-up George W Bush-era Constellation programme was ultimately axed by the succeeding Obama administration – apparently because it was deemed unaffordable. Constellation had the goal of returning to the Moon by 2020. Delta and Endeavor unveil new pilot hiring scheme - 6/2/2014.

Delta and Endeavor unveil new pilot hiring scheme - 6/2/2014

From 15 June, each new Endeavor pilot hired by the regional carrier will receive a commitment for a job at Delta in the future. Delta says the programme, called the Endeavor-to-Delta Pilot Hiring and Commitment Programme (EtD), will fulfill one-third of its future pilot hiring needs. "Delta expects to hire thousands of pilots in the coming years as many of its current pilots reach mandatory FAA [Federal Aviation Administration] retirement age," says the carrier.

Delta forecasts a need for 600 to 700 new pilots each year, says Don Bornhorst, senior vice president at Delta Connection. Endeavor operates under the Delta Connection brand. Endeavor Air president Ryan Gumm calls the scheme a first for the industry. Jobs in Asia. China Postal Airlines,new contract,up to 248,200 USD/year,quick report! with Unic Aviation.

How our mind decides, strategies and intuition.

It's one of those things that we tend to postpone until the next day. Most of the time it is a stressful and tiring activity. Once a decision has been made, we feel relieved even when the decision is wrong or not entirely appropriate to the situation. The general trend is to remain firmly attached to the decision even if it requires an effort, because changing a decision is even more tiring and stressful than taking it.

Furthermore, in some cases, changing it can damage our self-image, which we often try to defend. How our mind decides, strategies and intuition.
