There are bigger people trafficking networks in the west.

That one was just high profile and exclusive to the toffs.

People, mostly women, get trafficked to work in brothels all over the place, even here.

(Reuters) - The chief executives of major U.S. passenger and cargo carriers on Monday warned of an impending "catastrophic" aviation crisis in less than 36 hours, when AT&T (T.N) and Verizon (VZ.N) are set to deploy new 5G service.

The airlines warned the new C-Band 5G service set to begin on Wednesday could render a significant number of widebody aircraft unusable, "could potentially strand tens of thousands of Americans overseas" and cause "chaos" for U.S. flights.


"Unless our major hubs are cleared to fly, the vast majority of the traveling and shipping public will essentially be grounded," wrote the chief executives of American Airlines (AAL.O), Delta Air Lines (DAL.N), United Airlines , Southwest Airlines (LUV.N) and others in a letter first reported by Reuters.

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has warned that potential interference could affect sensitive airplane instr uments such as altimeters and significantly hamper low-visibility operations.

British Airways opted to switch aircraft on some flights to Los Angeles to an Airbus A380 from the usual Boeing 777 service, two people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

That entails pre-positioning a flight crew in Los Angeles to fly the Airbus superjumbo back to London on the return leg.

Just decided that I don't think we've ever had a better or more timely or more important AotY than Grace Tame. Whoever it is this year has massive shoes to fill.


She’s incredible. Can’t even fathom how hard it would be to go through what she went through and be so public about it. Gives me anxiety just thinking about it.

Yep, she shows so much wit and humour and (sorry) grace with everything she does. A remarkable human being. What's important too is that she hasn't let the position affect her in calling out issues and holding power to account over the last year.

The most worthy, brave, incredible [insert superlative here] person to ‘grace’ us with the award. And I say this after feeling the same about Rosie Battie and her advocacy.

These women are an inspiration, whose bravery and commitment is equal to anyone that has lived in this country.

Sad. Brilliant rock star who slightly tarnished his reputation with the GF debacle but was already way in front with the legendary role of Robert Paulson in addition to the huge catalogue of hit songs.

Watching a documentary where they continuously commenting on how the great Wall of China is such an epic project and completed in 70 years....

Pppffft, its hardly such a difficult task and not like building a rail link to Tullamarine!....

Is it just me or did the left used to protest against things like Davos and the world economic forum but now it’s the right?

Anyone here ever read House of Leaves by Danielewski? I've been aware of it for ages and I'm now considering picking it up, but I don't know if it's worth the fairly heft price tag.

The reaction to that is nothing compared to what 2 Live Crew, NWA and Ice T went through. Without 2 Live crew in particular we wouldn’t have any of that music. They literally had to fight the US government to play their music and won the case. Pretty crazy story, would make an awesome movie.
