WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators have approved a Boeing procedure to fix about 100 jets that have been idled for the past month because of improper electrical grounding of some components, and some of the planes could be flying again in the next few days. A Boeing spokesman said Thursday that the company issued service bulletins to airlines and will help them perform the work to fix the planes. The approval by the Federal Aviation Administration came shortly after the agency's administrator, Stephen Dickson, told a congressional panel he had “absolute confidence” in the safety of the Max and that fixing the latest problem with the troubled jetliner would be “pretty straightforward.” Southwest Airlines, the biggest customer for Boeing 737 jets including the Max, estimates that the work will take two to three days per plane. The airline expects to complete the work on its 32 grounded planes in about three weeks, a spokesman said. American Airlines, which has 18 planes sidelined by the electrical issue, and United Airlines, with 17 grounded Max jets, said they expect those planes to resume flying in the coming days but were not more specific. Alaska Airlines has four grounded Max jets. The timing of FAA approval is a boost to both Boeing – which is preparing to resume cash-generating deliveries of recently built Max jets – and its airline customers. Airlines can now plan on having the planes to help meet rising demand and expanding flight schedules heading into the peak summer-travel season. The electrical issue affecting a backup power unit and other components was another setback for Boeing's best-selling plane. It came just a few months after the planes resumed flying following two deadly crashes and a 20-month worldwide grounding of all Max jets. The electrical issue appeared to be unrelated to the automated flight-control system that played a role in the crashes. Dickson said Wednesday that the FAA is looking into how the electrical problem surfaced after Boeing made changes on its production line. Boeing says that since the planes resumed flying late last year, they have made 30,000 flights for 21 different airlines without incident. Shares of Boeing Co. rose 1% in midday trading after being up about 4% earlier in Thursday's session. The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The inventor of the adhesive used on one of 3M's best-known products, the Post-it Note, has died, according to the company and his published obituary. Spencer Silver was 80 and died May 8 at his home, the family's obituary said. Silver was working in a company lab in 1968 when he discovered a unique adhesive formula, according to 3M. The adhesive allowed notes to be easily attached to surfaces, removed and even re-posted elsewhere without leaving residue like other glues. Silver looked for several years for a practical use for the adhesive, calling it a “solution waiting for a problem to solve.” In 1974, his colleague Art Fry came up with the idea of using the adhesive to prevent paper bookmarks from falling out of his hymnal when he sang in church. The product was originally called the Press ‘n’ Peel memo pad in 1974, but it wasn’t brought to the market until 1977 and didn’t really take off until 1980, when it was renamed the Post-it Note. It’s now one of the top-selling items in 3M’s consumer products division. Silver retired as a corporate scientist in 1996 and earned 37 patents during his time at 3M. He also won several awards, including the 1998 American Chemical Society Award for Creative Invention, according to the company. Silver is survived by his wife of 56 years, Linda, a daughter and two grandchildren. The Associated Press

STONY PLAIN, Alberta, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Alberta Professional Outfitters Society (APOS) is pleased to officially launch our Wildlife Teeth Aging Program in partnership with DeerAge.com. This program will use cementum annuli aging to assess the annual cementum deposits on the roots of mammals’ teeth to determine the age of a harvested animal. The annual deposits create “rings” on the roots which can be viewed and counted under a microscope to more accurately age animals. In time, the Wildlife Teeth Aging Program will create a valuable collection of insightful data on Alberta’s wildlife populations. “The hunting community has a long history of record-keeping that dates back to the early 1900s,” states Corey Jarvis, President of APOS. “Organizations like the Boone and Crockett Club were born out of the concern expressed by hunters about the health of North America’s wildlife populations. Keeping wildlife records provides a means of better understanding wildlife populations and tracking the results of management efforts. Our Wildlife Teeth Aging Program will continue this longstanding tradition of record-keeping and, in time, provide a wealth of information on the health and well-being of wildlife populations in Alberta.” Using teeth aging kits ordered from APOS, members will have the option of submitting teeth from client harvests to APOS for aging. Age results should be available within 90 days of reaching the lab. All species are eligible and APOS members can purchase the kits at an exclusive member price. If you are interested in aging the teeth of your wildlife harvest but you are not a member of APOS, please visit https://deerage.com/ For more information, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 780-414-0249. About UsAlberta’s outfitters were some of the earliest pioneers of the tourism industry in our province, with the first guided hunts taking clients into Alberta’s wilderness in the late 1800s.

LONDON, May 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lithium-ion batteries are undoubtedly the future. As the UK replaces France as Europe's second-largest electric car market, mass consumer adoption is crucial to rolling back carbon output and reducing global warming. This growth is becoming exponential and is welcomed by many people due to the fact electric cars are seen as sustainable and environmentally friendly. About 31,800 battery-electric cars were sold in Britain in the first three months of 2021. Yet, the drawbacks are not being clearly addressed, setting us up to fail when striving towards sustainability. Here are some of the issues at play: In the EU market, roughly only 5% of lithium are collected. The rest was either incinerated or dumped in landfills. Bare in mind, they're manufactured using limited resources.Batteries will also drive cobalt and nickel demand higher than current production, while tellurium demand for solar PV will peak well above current production rates in the late 2020s to mid-2030s.Much of the substance is reduced during the recycling process to what is known as "black mass" - a mixture of lithium, manganese, cobalt and nickel - which needs further, energy-intensive processing to recover the materials in a reusable form. A tiered approach to solving these issues would be the key to the safe recycling of lithium-ion batteries. The best way to offset rising demand for key metals is to beef up recycling, something that currently isn't happening on a large scale. It would result in a supply and demand that would go along with current electric vehicle forecasts for the UK. There are signs of hope though. The UK's first end-to-end lithium-ion battery solution is due to IPO shortly and looks like a promising solution. Technology Minerals announced to existing shareholders that their IPO is coming soon. The development of innovative new British businesses focused on tackling these issues is an exciting prospect for consumers and investors alike is exactly what progress is about.

NEW YORK (AP) — St. John’s has given Big East Conference coach of the year Mike Anderson a six-year contract extension through the 2026-27 season. The university announced the deal on Thursday after Anderson delivered consecutive winning seasons in his first two years. Financial terms were not disclosed. The Red Storm posted a 16-11 record this past season, including a 10-9 mark in the conference after being picked ninth in the preseason coaches poll. It marked the first time St. John's finished with a league record of .500 or better since 2014-15. St. John’s did not receive an NCAA Tournament bid and removed itself from consideration for a probable bid to the NIT due to COVID-19 precautions. “In my time at St. John’s, Coach Anderson and the men’s basketball program have represented our University in a first class manner on the court, in the classroom and in the community,” university president Father Brian Shanley said in a statement. Anderson, who won his 400th career game this past season, is one of only three active Division I coaches with at least 15 years of experience to have never had a sub-.500 season. Anderson thanked the university, his staff and players. “Their faith in our vision for St. John’s Basketball is humbling and I greatly look forward to carrying on our program’s tradition of success for many years to come,” he said. Anderson is the first St. John’s coach to receive the Big East's coach of the year award in three decades. The season also saw sophomore Julian Champagnie named the league's most improved player and Posh Alexander named the freshman of the year and defensive player of the year. St. John's was 17-15 in Anderson's first season and had the Red Storm in position for a postseason berth before the season was abruptly ended by the COVID-19 pandemic. Entering his 20th year as a head coach, Anderson owns a 402-226 career record. He has led his teams to 12 postseason appearances, including nine trips to the NCAA Tournament. ___ More AP college basketball: https://apnews.com/hub/College-basketball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25 The Associated Press

TORONTO — The Conservative party was within its rights to use CBC news footage for election attack ads that depicted Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in a poor light, Federal Court ruled on Thursday. In his decision, Judge Michael Phelan found the party's use of the material on television and in four tweets in the run-up to the 2019 vote amounted to "fair dealing." As such, Phelan found, use of the material did not infringe CBC's copyright as the broadcaster had claimed. "The ultimate purpose was to mount a political campaign to secure votes to form a government," Phelan wrote. "The purpose was one of engaging in the democratic process. The evidence is that the use of the CBC works was for this legitimate political purpose." At issue were a Conservative ad and tweets that used clips from CBC news programming and from the leadership debates. The ad, for example, showed Trudeau asking the viewer to "look at what we've done" along with news clips that invited unfavourable conclusions about his performance. The CBC insisted such use of its material could compromise its journalistic integrity and impartiality. Phelan showed some sympathy for the complaint. "The CBC, as a state owned enterprise, is being reasonable in its concern to neither be, nor appear to be, politically partisan," Phelan said. "There is no evidence to support the accusation that CBC is acting irrationally in protecting its rights." Although he found the Conservatives had used the CBC material in a way that could infringe copyright, Phelan also noted the Copyright Act has an exemption for an "allowable purpose" that includes criticism or satire. However, use under the exemption must be fair, which Phelan concluded it was given the context of political debate. "The nature of the work, being news or news-like content, favours a fairness conclusion," he said. The broadcaster had also failed to show it suffered any actual harm, the judge said. Hypotheticals, he said, didn't cut it. "There may be situations in the future where the manner of use and distribution of CBC material may adversely affect the CBC; however, that is not the case here," Phelan wrote. "Fear and speculation cannot ground a finding of unfairness." The public broadcaster had initially wanted an injunction barring the Conservatives from ever using its news material but ultimately asked only for the court to find its rights had been breached. The Conservatives want the case dismissed. Because the party pulled the ad when CBC complained, Phelan found the entire dispute moot. He nevertheless decided to rule, saying the situation was likely to arise again and that it was best to sort it out now outside of the pressure cooker of an election campaign. The case was one of the first times a Canadian court had been asked to adjudicate a copyright dispute between a news organization and a major political organization.
