Newly discovered safety risk will keep Boeing’s 737 Max grounded for longer
The United States Federal Aviation Administration, which has been investigating Boeing’s grounded 737 Max in the wake of two crashes caused by malfunctions of its onboard systems, has discovered another, unrelated safety flaw. Reuters was first to report the news, with its sources indicating that the new safety issue was discovered in simulator tests last week, and now Boeing faces increased delays, including the potential need for hardware fixes, before it’s able to regain certification for airworthiness of its 737 Max. A subsequent emailed statement from the US regulator confirmed, without elaborating, that “The FAA recently found a potential risk that Boeing must mitigate.” Citing two sources familiar with the matter, Bloomberg...

Virgin Money stopped my card after data demand
I refused to answer a questionnaire and then my cards were blockedMy wife and I were migrated to Virgin Money credit cards last year after Virgin severed ties with MBNA which had previously been its card provider. Recently, Virgin wrote to us demanding disclosure of sensitive information such as our salaries, proof of identity and proof of source of funds that we use to pay our credit card bill.This is the first time in 20 years a credit card provider has sought such personal data, and the fact that the demand was signed by hand led me to suspect it may be fraud. I reported it to Virgin Money and it confirmed it had sent the letter, but was unable to share from which department it had originated, nor why it required the information. Continue reading...

Wine Calling review – woozy salute to France's natural wine movement
This passionate documentary about a DIY trend emerging in the French countryside opens with a bit of a hangoverIt’s a shame that this woozy documentary sets its stall out haphazardly, because it contains a real story, embedded in French culture and landscape, that belatedly emerges with passionate clarity: the rise of the “natural wine” movement in the country’s south-west Occitanie region. As opposed to wine labelled organic, which may still contain preservative sulphites or use mechanised farming methods, the smaller producers who adhere to the natural philosophy aim to produce their plonk with handmade techniques and the least chemical intervention possible.But director Bruno Sauvard refuses to lay out these distinctions clearly at the outset of the film, or offer much else by way of context. Instead, he bets on the Anthony Bourdain school of rock’n’roll gourmandise, painting these Roussillon vignerons as industry outlaws, the director hanging table-side at every word as Black Rebel Motorcycle Club tear up the soundtrack. It might be a grabby marketing hook, but it risks – as one observer later insists it isn’t – writing off the natural wine movement as a hipster fad. In fact, in many ways, it’s the antithesis of rebellion; more a studious return to the first principles of wine making, rooted in close and constant observation of nature, and a vocation unlikely to confer riches and fame on anyone.

Snake oil or panacea: can technology improve student mental health?
Universities are hoping that new technologies will ease rapidly growing demand for student mental health services, but the evidence they work isn’t always thereRising numbers of student suicides and dramatic increases in demand for support services have led to claims of a university mental health crisis. Earlier this month, a survey revealed students were significantly more anxious than other young people. The issue has become a focus for regulator the Office for Students, which recently announced funding for projects investigating solutions. Even Theresa May chose to spend her remaining time as prime minister announcing a £1m competition to come up with innovative ways of improving student mental health.Many of these responses depend on technology. How universities can use data to identify at-risk students, whether new apps developed to support those with mental health problems actually work, and what the benefits and limits of technology might be was the subject of a roundtable discussion, held at the Guardian’s offices in London earlier this month and supported by Jisc, the digital agency for universities. The roundtable involved senior academics, technology experts and others with in-depth knowledge of student mental health. Continue reading...

I took drugs recently and colours danced on the insides of my eyelids | Adrian Chiles
I’ve only had two encounters with cannabis, and both left me feeling so unwell that I’ll never repeat the experience One of the things I’ve heard about music festivals is that a lot of drugs are taken. That’s something else I’m useless at. My drug-taking career began at a community centre disco when I was about 15. I had drunk a load of homebrew beforehand – and then someone gave me some pot. I felt quite unwell. To address this, I decided to go and have a headbang to Deep Purple. Scenes as ghastly as they were predictable ensued. The mere smell of pot still makes me gag, as my fellow headbangers and I were retching on that awful night.Fast forward almost 40 years to March this year, and we get to my second – and emphatically last ever – encounter with cannabis. I was in a hotel bar in Manchester having fallen into conversation with quite a famous actor. After a while, she said to me: “Come out for some spliff.” Next thing, I’m sitting outside, pulling on a joint the size of a fencepost. I felt a bit funny at first, and then decidedly peculiar. She soon went inside, possibly because I had completely stopped speaking. As well as losing the power of speech, it turned out that my motor functions had all but deserted me, too. And I was overwhelmed with nausea. Continue reading...
