Flávio Ricco elogia o Entrevista com Especialista


Vale a pena A propósito de humor, a “Entrevista com Especialista”, quadro do “Lady Night”, da Tatá Werneck, é uma das coisas mais divertidas da televisão nos tempos atuais. Psiquiatra, corretor de imóveis, apicultor e gestor de carreira foram alguns que já passaram por lá.

Primeiro Impacto é uma aula de como não se fazer jornalismo


Vulgaridade O “Primeiro Impacto”, do SBT, na manhã de segunda-feira, estampou o selo “exclusivo”, durante exibição da reportagem de um racha de carros de luxo em São Paulo.

Só que no mesmo momento, Globo e Record também estavam  com o mesmo assunto. O que leva alguém a fazer uma coisa dessas.

Red, green, and white: Shedding light on aircraft illumination


From take-off to landing, a jetliner’s external lights are vital to seeing and being seen.

The Exterior Lights team in Getafe, Spain sets requirements for industry suppliers to design and manufacture such lighting – ensuring correct operation in all conditions, including very cold temperatures at high altitudes and high temperatures in hot climates, and the vibrations encountered during a typical flight. Another aspect is ensuring the right electrical bonding in case of a lightning strike.

“Our main role is to gather data on state-of-the-art technologies and set out specific design requirements to instruct suppliers in designing lighting systems to meet operators’ needs,” said Amelia Martin, Head of Exterior Lights.

Aircraft lights are divided into two broad categories: those used to help pilots see, and those that make the aircraft visible to others.

Like the headlights on a car, powerful forward-facing lights are switched on during darkness and in inclement weather to help flight crews discern the ground in front of them. Referred to as landing, taxi and take-off lights, these super-bright lamps are employed during taxiing, take-offs and landings. Other lights are used for visual ice detection on engines and wings, while additional ones illuminate areas on the aircraft with camera coverage.

Lights that help make an aircraft visible to others trace their origins to maritime traditions: a red light on the port (left) side; a green light on the starboard (right) side. Complemented by flashing white and red lights in the wings, fuselage and tail, they all help to determinate an aircraft’s position and direction.

Finally, aircraft have their vertical tailfin illuminated by a so-called logo light. More than just solidifying a carrier’s brand identity, such a large bright surface also makes the jetliner more visible – both in the air and on the ground.

All told, there are a total of 23 external lights on a single-aisle A320 Family jetliner, and 41 on the widebody A350 XWB.

Airbus BizLab boosts global start-ups to bring their projects to life

Nearly 1,000 start-ups have interacted with the BizLab over the last two years.


Thirty start-ups –  from the three global BizLab accelerators in Toulouse, Hamburg and Bangalore – have pitched their projects at the “Airbus BizLab Summit” in Toulouse in front of an international audience of investors, BizLab partners and top managers from Airbus. Airbus BizLab, the global aerospace business accelerator, gives start-ups the unique opportunity to bring their ideas and vision to life.

In parallel Airbus Bizlab is also launching its next call for projects featuring two firsts. It will be a joint call for projects between Hamburg and Toulouse, allowing the start-ups to select the location where they would like to be hosted. In addition, Airbus BizLab will open up a new social dimension by welcoming applications from start-ups operating in the Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO) environment. The next call for projects for the BizLab in Bangalore will be launched later this year.

Through the “Summit”, Airbus BizLab performs an important “facilitator” role for the start-ups by easing their access and exchange with the investor community and potential industrial partners as the start-ups present face-to-face their high quality project and eventually seek funding. Also, internal projects are pitched to Airbus management to showcase their successful achievements with the opportunity to benefit from a six month post acceleration programme to bring their project forward.

“We are proud to see open innovation moving forward. In just two years, Airbus BizLab has already been in contact with almost 1,000 start-ups from all over the world.” said Bruno Gutierres, Head of Airbus BizLab “It is key to identify inventive ideas and new services to meet future challenges and customers’ expectations.”

Airbus BizLab already counts several success stories including: the Jetlite start-up that developed a specific lighting system for reducing jetlag and secured a contract from a leading airline for their new A350 XWB; the Uwinloc start-up that has raised € 2.3 million to date with its innovative RFID tracking system; internal projects such as the iflyA380.com website, the unique booking assistant tool for the iconic A380.
