Typical of corporate america - a long article but a great read.

Crash Course - How Boeing's managerial revolution created the 737 MAX disaster
Nearly two decades before Boeing’s MCAS system crashed two of the plane-maker’s brand-new 737 MAX jets, Stan Sorscher knew his company’s increasingly toxic mode of operating would create a disaster of some kind. A long and proud “safety culture” was rapidly being replaced, he argued, with “a culture of financial bulls**t, a culture of groupthink.”

A life well lived - Civil rights advocate Juanita Abernathy dies  :angel:

Video - a good piece as usual.   :clap:

Juanita Abernathy, a civil rights advocate who became a key figure in the national movement, has died in her late 80s. She never gave an exact an age. Sunday TODAY’s Willie Geist remembers a life well-lived.

Politics / The Dollar Store Backlash Has Begun
« on: Yesterday at 02:42:53 PM »   :read:   :popcorn:   :read:

The U.S. has added 10,000 of these budget retail outlets since 2001. But some towns and cities are trying to push back.

It has become an increasingly common story: A dollar store opens up in an economically depressed area with scarce healthy and affordable food options, sometimes with the help of local tax incentives. It advertises hard-to-beat low prices but it offers little in terms of fresh produce and nutritious items—further trapping residents in a cycle of poverty and ill-health.

A recent research brief by the Institute of Local Self Reliance (ILSR), a nonprofit supporting local economies, sheds light on the massive growth of this budget enterprise. Since 2001, outlets of Dollar General and Dollar Tree (which bought Family Dollar in 2015) have grown from 20,000 to 30,000 in number. Though these “small-box” retailers carry only a limited stock of prepared foods, they’re now feeding more people than grocery chains like Whole Foods, which has around 400-plus outlets in the country. In fact, the number of dollar-store outlets nationwide exceeds that of Walmart and McDonalds put together—and they’re still growing at a breakneck pace. That, ILSR says, is bad news.

“While dollar stores sometimes fill a need in cash-strapped communities, growing evidence suggests these stores are not merely a byproduct of economic distress,” the authors of the brief write. “They’re a cause of it.”
