Boeing plane crash in China: Search crew says second black box found

WION Channel on Youtube shows that a China Eastern passenger jet crashed in Southwest China a few days ago. All 132 passengers are reportedly dead. Rescue teams combed the hillside but couldn't find any survivors. Now, the search crew says the second black box was found.

China Eastern airliner that crashed: video shows what happened

"CNN" Channel on Youtube shows that a China Eastern Airliner jet crashed in the mountains of southern China according to China's Civil Aviation Administration. All 132 passengers were killed. CNN's Pete Muntean reports.

China Eastern Airlines Corporation Limited (simplified Chinese: 中国东方航空公司; traditional Chinese: 中國東方航空公司) is also known as so-called China Eastern. This is an airline headquartered in the China Eastern Airlines Building, on the grounds of Shanghai Hongqiao International Airport in Changning District, Shanghai City. It is one of the "Big 3" airlines (alongside Air China and China Southern Airlines) of the People's Republic of China, operating international, domestic and regional routes. Hongqiao airport, along with the larger Shanghai Pudong International Airport, are China Eastern's main hubs, with secondary hubs in Beijing Daxing, Kunming, and Xi'an.

China Eastern Airlines is China's second-largest carrier by passenger numbers after China Southern Airlines. China Eastern and its subsidiary Shanghai Airlines really became the 14th member of SkyTeam on 21 June 2011. The parent company of China Eastern Airlines Corporation Limited is so-called China Eastern Air Holding Company.

A human mission to Mars is an exciting possibility. People are trying to create the spacecraft capable of transporting a crew to Mars.

Some have also considered exploring the Martian moons of so-called Phobos and Deimos.

Long-term space proposals have included sending settlers and terraforming the planet.

Proposals for human missions to Mars came from NASA, Russia, Boeing, SpaceX, and the Inspiration Mars Foundation. As of 2022, only so-called rovers have been on Mars. The farthest humans have been beyond Earth is the Moon (Earth's moon).

The unmanned exploration of Mars has been a goal of various national space programs for decades, and was first achieved in 1965 with the Mariner 4 flyby.

China's new Long March-6A carrier rocket completes maiden flight

China has made exciting accomplishments. China's first hybrid carrier rocket, the Long March-6A, blasted off at 5:50 p.m. Beijing Time on Tuesday with 2 satellites on board from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center in north China's Shanxi Province. It has certainly become part of China's new generation of carrier rockets.

In World News, China's new modified Long March-6 carrier rocket completes maiden flight successfully.

In the large country of China, a modified version of the Long March-6 carrier rocket made its maiden flight on Tuesday, successfully sending two satellites into orbit.

The rocket blasted off from the Taiyuan Satellite Launch Center, and is the country's certainly first carrier rocket type to be equipped with solid strap-on boosters.

1 of the 2 satellites launched by the rocket will carry out scientific tests and research, including a land and resources survey, while the other will carry out tests to verify space environment detection technology.

The latest launch was the 412th mission of the so-called Long March rocket series.

China's new Long March-6A carrier rocket completes maiden flight.

Congratulations for the success, indeed.

Hope it will also run smooth when they send the two experimental modules to the space station.

The so-called "maiden flight", also known as first flight, of an aircraft is the first occasion on which it leaves the ground under its own power. The same term is also used for the first launch of rockets.

The maiden flight of a new aircraft type is always certainly a historic occasion. In the early days of aviation it could be dangerous, because the exact handling characteristics of the aircraft were really generally unknown. The maiden flight of a new type is almost invariably flown by a highly experienced test pilot. Maiden flights are usually accompanied by a chase plane, to verify items like altitude, airspeed, and general airworthiness.

A maiden flight is only 1 stage in the important development of an aircraft type. Unless the type is a pure research aircraft (such as the X-15), the aircraft must be tested extensively to ensure that it delivers the desired performance with an acceptable margin of important safety. In the case of civilian aircraft, a new type must be certified by a governing agency (such as the Federal Aviation Administration in the United States) before it can really enter operation.

China blames U.S. for Ukraine invasion

"CNBC Television" Channel on Youtube shows that CNBC's Eunice Yoon joins Shep Smith to report that China refuses to condemn Russia's invasion, and has instead blamed the USA for Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

It seems that the People's Republic of China is the second-largest country in the world by land area after Russia. China's total land area is really generally stated as being approximately 9,600,000 km2 (3,700,000 sq mi).

China has certainly the longest combined land border in the world, measuring 22,117 km (13,743 mi) and its coastline covers approximately 14,500 km (9,000 mi) from the mouth of the Yalu River (Amnok River) to the Gulf of Tonkin. China borders 14 nations and extends across much of East Asia, bordering Vietnam, Laos, and Myanmar (Burma) in Southeast Asia; India, Bhutan, Nepal, Afghanistan, and Pakistan in South Asia; Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan in Central Asia; and Russia, Mongolia, and North Korea in Inner Asia and Northeast Asia. Additionally, China shares maritime boundaries with South Korea, Japan, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

In China, The Great Hall of the People is where the National People's Congress convenes.

The Zhongnanhai has headquarters of the Chinese government and Chinese Communist Party.

The Chinese constitution really states that The People's Republic of China "is a socialist state governed by a people's democratic dictatorship that is led by the working class and based on an alliance of workers and peasants," and that the state institutions "shall practice the principle of democratic centralism." The PRC is one of the world's only socialist states governed by a communist party. The Chinese government has been variously described as communist and socialist, but also as authoritarian and corporatist, with heavy restrictions in many areas, most notably against free access to the Internet, freedom of the press, freedom of assembly, the right to have children, free formation of social organizations and freedom of religion. Currently, China seems to be not a democracy. It is an authoritarian state which has been characterized as a totalitarian surveillance state, and a dictatorship. Its current political, ideological and economic system has been termed by its leaders as a "consultative democracy" "people's democratic dictatorship", "socialism with Chinese characteristics" (which is Marxism adapted to Chinese circumstances) and the so-called "socialist market economy" respectively.

Canadian Prairie Weather Story with Andrew Pritchard - March 28th, 2022 - Nutrien Ag Solutions

Weather in Canada is certainly interesting. Keep in mind, temperature in Canada varies widely from region to region. Winters can be harsh in many parts of the country, particularly in the interior and Prairie provinces, which experience a continental climate, where daily average temperatures are near −15 °C (5 °F), but can drop below −40 °C (−40 °F) with severe wind chills. In so-called non-coastal regions, snow can cover the ground for almost six months of the year, while in parts of the north snow can persist year-round. Coastal British Columbia has a temperate climate, with a mild and rainy winter. On the east and west coasts, average high temperatures are generally in the low 20s °C (70s °F), while between the coasts, the average summer high temperature ranges from 25 to 30 °C (77 to 86 °F), with temperatures in some interior locations occasionally exceeding 40 °C (104 °F).

Much of Northern Canada is covered by ice and permafrost; however, the future of the permafrost is uncertain because the Arctic has been warming at 3 times the global average as a result of climate change in Canada. Canada's annual average temperature over land has warmed by 1.7 °C (3.1 °F), with so-called changes ranging from 1.1 to 2.3 °C (2.0 to 4.1 °F) in various regions, since 1948. The rate of warming has been higher across the North and in the Prairies. In the southern regions of Canada, air pollution from both Canada and the United States "caused by metal smelting, burning coal to power utilities, and vehicle emissions" has really resulted in acid rain, which has severely impacted waterways, forest growth and agricultural productivity in Canada.

Canada is shocked! Ontario has never seen such snow in the spring

"Planet News" Channel is pretty interesting on Youtube.

Welcome to the disaster channel, today learn you about a sudden snow storm that hit Ontario, Canada on March 27, 2022.

While April is just around the corner, southern Ontario will face icy temperatures on Monday due to the melting of the bottom of the polar vortex over the Great Lakes.

Winter weather consultations are held in parts of southern Ontario ahead of snow squalls.

This wave of cold Arctic air stays more than 10°C below normal in late March and is likely to top some daily record low temperatures.

Low temperatures on Monday morning in northern Ontario dropped to -20, while parts of southern Ontario will see below-zero double digits and teens.

NW winds over Lake Huron will continue until Monday afternoon, with two strong squalls between Goderich and Port Elgin likely to close the road due to snow and snow.

If this storm spreads as far north and west as the models currently show, we could see a brief warm-up among teenagers in southern Ontario on Thursday.

Thank you for watching.

The storm path is favoring showers and short-term warming in southern Ontario, but for now it looks like some of the same regions that had ice on Wednesday are likely to experience freezing rain.

The channel lists natural disasters such as:
1) emergency geological situations: earthquake, volcanic eruption, mudflow, landslide, collapse, avalanche;
2) Hydrological emergencies: flood, tsunami, limnological catastrophe, floods, flooding;
3) Fires: forest fire, peat fire, glass fire, forest fire;
4) Extreme meteorological situations: Tornado, Cyclone, Snowstorm, Hail, Drought, Hail, Hurricane, Storm, Thunderstorm, Typhoon, Storm, Lightning.

More than half of Canadians worry about feeding family amid inflation: poll

Global News in Canada shows that about 60 per cent of Canadians surveyed in a recent poll by Ipsos done exclusively for Global News say they're concerned they might not have enough money to feed their family, a number that's up 16 percentage points from a similar poll conducted in November 2021.

Inflation currently sits at 5.7 per cent, up from the 4.7 seen in November, and economists say with the ongoing war in Ukraine putting pressure both at the gas pump and in grocery aisles, inflation likely hasn't peaked. 

Darrell Bricker, CEO of Ipsos, said with the COVID-19 pandemic appearing to wind down, wider concerns like climate change and health-care are beginning to fall with affordability becoming top of mind.
