"federal aviation administration" Discussed on Bloomberg Radio New York
"Welcome back to Bloomberg technology I'm Emily Chang in San Francisco It is another day Another delay for Elon Musk's SpaceX The federal aviation administration says it now expects to complete an environmental review of the rocket makers Texas facility in mid June Another pushback which potentially does delays the timeline for starship Musk's Mars moonshot This is the 5th time in fact that the FAA has postponed the release of this report For more what it all means are at ludlow here with me So is the FAA buying time here What's going on It's impossible to know today's May 31st I was waiting for this because it was the day they were due to make a decision And I wrote it down on a piece of paper because I'm not embarrassed about that end They have delayed it 5 times And the last time we were waiting for this was on April 29th so I sat here waiting and they delayed it till May 31st But it's important because SpaceX can not make any progress on this starship plan the testing phase at least until they get clearance from the FAA Now you were on the ground in Boca chica in February Remember that vividly and Elon Musk made it sound like starship was just around the corner Right and at that time he basically expected that the regulatory side of things this environmental review would be done in a couple of months A test flight the hardware would be ready in a compromise and he had an even bolder prediction for what would happen Take a listen Might be a few bumps along the road but it'll work I feel At this point highly confident that it will get to orbit this year Classic mask Test flight by the end of this year But we don't know where we stand now because this key piece keeps getting delayed Well so that was my next question What do we know about where we stand with starship So you've seen the video I think if the mister director will play it again the explosions the kind of successful tests they've only really done hops off the ground And what starship needs to do is an orbital test flight That's kind of the big milestone moment where it breaches Earth's atmosphere comes back down and lands again That's what we're waiting for Gwen shotwell who's the presidency said it could happen in June Doesn't seem like that if the FAA decision's not due now until June 13th Meantime of course you've got SpaceX generally going from strength to strength pulling off a lot of successes So as of Friday Starlink their space satellite constellation based Internet service is available in all 7 continents expanded to Africa as of Friday That's quite an achievement And today this May 31st really important date ten years ago first unmanned dragon mission to ISS two years ago first man one they're dominating this industry but we really care about starship because like you said it's the Marshall or the moonshot All right Thank you We'll keep watching You'll keep us posted Well today marked the first day on the job for the new CEO of match group Bernard Kim He is leaving Zynga where he's been president since 2016 He's taking over for Shah doobie who's been at the company for the last 16 years It is a pivotal time for dating apps especially as we emerge from the pandemic and much of the world faces inflation I am joined now by schwarze and analyst at Evercore who just published a deep dive on not only match but also bumble so shuttle what do you make of this new leadership and also coming from the gaming space to online dating Is that a good thing Well we'll have to see He's done a good job at Zynga matches slightly different but also similar in a lot of ways There are two things that are good I think are one that there are some similarities between what he did at Zynga and had matched portfolio of assets And a global business both in favor of what matches strategy is The other thing that's good is that Shah is not really leaving She is going to be part of the board and she will be working as an adviser to Bernard And also it's not the CEO change is not a turnaround story It's not like peloton where you have to rework everything This is a functioning business It's a strong leader in online dating and it's category a global business And he's going to come in and it's going to be business per usual at least for the near term And then as he settles in he will throw in his own strategy as he gets comfortable So I don't think there will be huge turbulence in the business as he comes on board So let's talk about your new report because you're basically saying that you think online dating and as we go through all of this market volatility you think online dating is recession proof Why Well a largely recession proof The beauty of the challenge of being in consumer Internet is that none of our names are recession proof really So there certainly impacted by inflation But when it compares to the rest of our coverage yes they're largely resilient And our survey shows that almost 80% of those who are actively looking for a relationship are going to use the online dating app just as much or even more over the next call it 6 months to 12 months And so that tells me that usage is not going to change The second read through was that if there is inflationary pressure and there is a recession in the next 6 months most of them of our survey responded so that they would be willing to pay about $17 a month on average for an online dating app And that's where we are today So it's not that they would pay any less Now the question is well bumble is slightly more expensive so would that come from bumble And I don't think so I don't think that may be the case either because one of those several different tailwinds So when you look at the online dating landscape and the options out there is bumble or Tinder hinge match are they all more or less equal in your view Or do some stand out over others I think some stand out over others what our survey also showed is that bumble is really gaining market share And the one of the biggest investor questions into the Q one print was where is where the market share chef Is bumble gaming share from Tinder Is it something else Our survey shows that really Tinder continues to be the leader in the market but bumble is gaining share from plenty of fish and eHarmony So other apps that have been around but may not be as powerful as a bumble And so in the United States our survey shows its Tinder as number one bumble as a clear number two and hinge is also gaining ground to now number four back from number 7 last year So not all apps are created equal even though the target target market may be slightly different depending on your background Or one's background but what matching bumble are doing with the product is certainly superior to some of the other apps out there Well engagement is one thing but getting people to pay for it is the other you know which of these do you think is the best at generating that revenue and getting users to pay up for something that many of the things should be free Yeah great question Almost all of these are premium models at different prices at different price points But our survey shows that most users are willing to pay for Tinder eHarmony match bumble and hinge These are the top 5 paid for apps and some of the reasons for eHarmony and matches also because of the demographic They're older older age folks who may have greater savings and are more serious about relationship and that's where the payer conversion is slightly greater in those apps But at the same time on average our surveillance is about.

NASA and the FAA Research Engine Ice-Crystal Icing
"Crystals hit warm aircraft engines the crystals start to melt and evaporate cooling the engine core surfaces to temperatures below freezing as the melted ice crystals then re freeze. Ice accumulates inside the engine core which can cause temporary power loss stalls flameouts or engine blade damage current weather radar easily detects rain or hail so pilots can take steps to avoid those conditions but identifying smaller ice crystals in the atmosphere can be more difficult understanding ice water. Content conditions can improve flight safety so the federal aviation administration is working with nasa and other government and industry partners to gather data about this unusual phenomenon.

f._a._a. managers retaliated against safety inspectors who raised concerns about oversight of south west the newspaper said the transportation department's inspector general is spent months examining safety issues at south west including lax documentation of maintenance on more than one hundred planes south west says it is cooperating with the audits now there's growing bipartisan support on capitol hill to regulate big tack carly fiorina the former h._p. c._e._o. and republican presidential candidate told c._n._b._c. as social media and other platforms need to be more transparent and users need more options more serious however is there is growing bipartisan consensus that there needs to be some level of regulation i share that concern i think facebook and google have amassed enormous power i think when power like that is concentrated it is always abused in evidently i think there is a complete lack of transparency really in terms of how these companies deal with the information that they have an honestly i don't quite understand facebook's move into bitcoin because i think it is going to attract even more scrutiny and regulation if you're dealing with everyone's private information and money at the same Time that's going to draw a lot of attention. so is this a simple size and scale issued that they should just be almost specific privacy all responsibility for the accuracy of that content well i think there are a whole range of policy ideas one is size and scale let's just break them up i tend to favor regulation that's focused on creating a floor below which a company's behavior cannot fall so personally i would favor far more transparency around what they actually do and how they do it and policies that require consumers to opt in as opposed to the way it works now where consumers if they understand it well enough can opt out but most consumers don't really understand what either google or facebook or doing but i think that whole range of options is now on the table i don't think we're going to return to a time where regulation of tech is off the table as it has been for a long time so with or without trump i think google and facebook are heading into a different kind of scenario in washington d._c. just as they are in europe president trump told the fox business network on wednesday the u._s. should sue facebook and google for

"Passengers flight got suspended at Gatwick last month. Netted six hours on they tell us we're gonna fly some possible, they constantly after that they sit as you have to get out from the our plan. We get out hold the families some of them. They've gone back to London's on we stay hills. We sleep on the floor. That's one of the more than one hundred thousand travellers who's flights were disrupted at Gatwick airport in London last month following a drone sighting. So we want to hear from you. How is it that we balanced the needs the safety needs the security needs around airports as we have more and more drone enthusiasts flying their little devices. Everyday. What regulations do we need perhaps are their technological fixes? And also is there a national security concern as well? I'm joined today by Allen Levin. He covers aviation and drones for Bloomberg news and Alan let me just ask you quickly. You heard what captain Rooney told us before the break about he says, we need more oversight. Site better education for operators and need to be more proactive now on that proactive proactive front. What would what would being more proactive? Look like when it comes to drone safety around airports. The federal government in this case. The Federal Aviation Administration is wrestling with this has been for the past few years. The short answer is nobody quite knows at this point. But you know, they've done all sorts of things to try to push industry to include notes when you buy the drones telling people where to fly and where not to fly it. That has I think it helps with some people, but clearly not everybody, and they're they're congress passed a law. A couple months back that requires a additional first of all brings more oversight to the drone world. The congress had written fairly clumsy law about five or six years ago, which did not specifically give FAA control over civilian hobbyist drone operators. But now the agency does and whatnot. But there's a big debate about, you know, do go out and do enforcement cases for these people. Most of whom are just sort of doing this out of ignorance or not so far the agency has had a couple of big high profile enforcement cases. But for the most part, they're not. And then there's a a much bigger effort underway, spurred by law enforcement. To require every drone in the country to issue put out a radio beacon that identifies that drone. It's operator and tells law enforcement or anybody else where it is gonna win. But that's not fully integrated technology. That's something that law enforcement would like to have happen. Correct. An and they're they're supposedly on scheduled to release a proposed rule to require that. In may these things take a year sometimes longer if they're controversial to put a two to finalise. So we're looking at twenty twenty at the earliest before that can be put implants, frankly, I mean you've been thinking about both aviation drones is world these worlds for a longtime. Honestly, do you feel like there's a sense of urgency around this or or not? Oh, I I definitely think there's a sense of urgency. The problem is it's not entirely clear how to fix it. And you know, you have this industry that is growing by leaps and bounds. You have some of the, you know, the most powerful, or at least rapidly growing tech companies in the world, you know, namely, Amazon and Google that are trying to do drone deliveries among other things, but they're also used for dozens hundreds of commercial uses and so there's this tremendous push to sort of allow that to happen. They don't wanna squash that you know, what could be the the equivalent of the next personal computer in in in in terms of its impact on the economy.

Currently a play nor predict the point at which the entire system will break it's on president. If thank you. I was waiting for someone to say that was certainly wasn't the only talk show host saying this because you know, it's about opinions and looking at the situation and all angles from this. But of course, it's dangerous. So the Federal Aviation Administration response to the unions concerns, they shoot back, and they say, I mean, listen to the statement, the FAA partially that partially the FAA continually reviews and analyzes the performance of the national airspace systems to assess the safety and fishing. Well, it's not safe. How can it be safe? How could you claim that it could be safe, and they're not saying that because you can never one hundred percent, but the staff shortages across the country were listen, you got air traffic controllers, you're working sixty hours a week without pay. And they're saying flat out the government needs to open now because they do they have incentive to keep working out a paycheck. I just wanted to think for a second could you work without a paycheck, which would you work that a paycheck, even if you're making it, and I'm going to say the people who are making it. No, they're not working on that paycheck. The people who were hand to mouth. They don't want to work without a pay. Nobody wants to work without a pay. Check. They don't they don't wanna do that. So this isn't good. I mean, there are limitations and those limitations are being stretched. But will the Democrats given I don't think the president gives in. He wants the wall. He wants it funded period end of story. And I don't think that needle news. I don't I don't see that happening. And so having said that he's not going to blink the Democrats would have to blink. They're the ones that are going to have to blink is anything different is going to happen here.
