United Airlines Is Getting Rid of Some Executives to Save Money



United Continental Holdings Inc. expects to cut some management employees as it deepens efforts to reduce bureaucracy and catch up with the profit margins of industry leader Delta Air Lines Inc.

The third-largest U.S. carrier will “continue to finalize the remainder of our management team” after overhauling its roster of corporate officers last year, according to a Jan. 6 memo from Executive Vice President Mike Bonds to employees.

Bone membrane inspires fabric with smart stress-strain properties [feedly]


Bone membrane inspires fabric with smart stress-strain properties
// Gizmag Emerging Technology Magazine



Periosteum is a membrane of soft tissue that covers the outer surface of most bones in the body. Consisting of a complex combination of collagen, elastin and other structural proteins, it is an incredibly resilient material that gives bones extra strength under high impacts. Now, for the first time, researchers have mimicked these properties in a "smart" fabric that could serve as the basis for advanced functional materials with applications in everything from safety and transport, to medicine.

Airbus Considers More Range, Higher Weights For A330neo

TOULOUSE—Airbus is studying another maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) increase for the Airbus A330neo that will enable the aircraft to fly several hundred miles further.

Both the A330-800 and the -900 are now offered at a 242-ton MTOW, but Airbus is looking at raising it to 245 tons or higher, according to sales chief John Leahy. That would allow for more range. The A330-900 currently has a range of 6,550 nm according to its manufacturer. The smaller A330-800 flies up to 7,500 nm. That compares to 7,355 nm for the 787-8 and 7,635nm for the 787-9.
