Boeing CEO to step down as 737 Max crisis worsens

Published

on

Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun will step down at the end of 2024 as part of a broad management shake-up for the embattled aerospace giant.

  • CEO Resignation: Boeing’s CEO, Dave Calhoun, is stepping down at the end of 2024 amidst ongoing challenges, including the 737 Max crisis.

  • Management Changes: Larry Kellner, the chairman, won’t seek reelection. Steve Mollenkopf will take over as chair, while Stan Deal, head of commercial airplanes, is leaving immediately. Stephanie Pope will replace Deal.

  • Industry Pressure: Airlines and regulators are demanding significant changes at Boeing due to quality and safety concerns. These issues have led to production delays, strained relationships with customers, and a decline in Boeing’s stock value.

Larry Kellner, chairman of the board, will not stand for reelection at Boeing’s annual meeting in May, Boeing said Monday.

He will be succeeded as chair by Steve Mollenkopf, who has been a Boeing director since 2020 and is a former CEO of Qualcomm. Mollenkopf will lead the board in picking a new CEO, Boeing said.

And Stan Deal, president and chief executive of Boeing’s commercial airplanes unit, is leaving the company effective immediately. Moving into his job is Stephanie Pope, who recently became Boeing’s chief operating officer after previously running Boeing Global Services.

Quality flaws

The departures come as airlines and regulators have been increasing calls for major changes at the company after a host of quality and manufacturing flaws on Boeing planes.

Scrutiny intensified after a Jan. 5 accident, when a door plug blew out of a nearly new Boeing 737 Max 9 minutes into an Alaska Airlines flight.

“As you all know, the Alaska Airlines Flight 1282 accident was a watershed moment for Boeing,” Calhoun wrote to employees on Monday.

“We must continue to respond to this accident with humility and complete transparency. We also must inculcate a total commitment to safety and quality at every level of our company.

It’s been a bad start to 2024 for Boeing.

“The eyes of the world are on us, and I know we will come through this moment a better company, building on all the learnings we accumulated as we worked together to rebuild Boeing over the last number of years,” he wrote.

“We have another mountain to climb,” Calhoun said.

“Let’s not avoid the call for action. Let’s not avoid the changes that we have to make in our factory. Let’s not avoid the need to slow down a bit and let the supply chain catch up.”

Calhoun, a more than decade-long board member at Boeing, took the top job there in January 2020 after the company ousted its previous chief executive, Dennis Muilenburg, for his handling of the aftermath of two deadly 737 Max crashes.

 

Production issues

Boeing’s production problems have delayed deliveries of new planes to customers and hampered growth plans.

CEOs of some of the company’s largest customers, including United Airlines, Southwest Airlines, and American Airlines have publicly complained about the delays.

Ryanair, Boeing’s largest airline customer in Europe, said in a statement Monday it welcomes the management changes.

“Stan Deal has done a great sales job for Boeing for many years, but he’s not the person to turn around the operation in Seattle, and that’s where most of the problems have been in recent years,” Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary said in a video posted to social media platform X.

United’s CEO, Scott Kirby, earlier this month said he urged Boeing to stop making yet-to-be-certified Max 10 planes for the company because it wasn’t clear when the FAA would clear those aircraft to fly.

Specialists highlight importance of water in daily routine

Published

on

Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining overall health and well-being.

From regulating body temperature to aiding in digestion and nutrient absorption, water plays a crucial role in keeping our bodies functioning optimally. However, many of us often overlook the importance of staying hydrated throughout the day. Fortunately, there are simple and effective ways to incorporate more water into your daily routine.

 

  1. Start your day right: Begin each morning with a refreshing glass of water. After hours of sleep, your body needs hydration to kickstart its systems and replenish fluids lost overnight. This simple habit can set a positive tone for the rest of your day.
  2. Stay equipped: Invest in a reusable water bottle and carry it with you wherever you go. Having water readily available makes it easier to stay hydrated on the move, whether you’re at work, running errands, or exercising.
  3. Set reminders: In the hustle and bustle of daily life, it’s easy to forget to drink water regularly. Set reminders on your phone or computer to prompt you to take regular water breaks throughout the day. These gentle nudges can help you stay on track with your hydration goals.
  4. Make smart swaps: Replace sugary beverages like soda and juice with water during meals. Not only does this reduce your sugar intake, but it also ensures that you’re hydrating your body with the purest form of liquid it needs.
  5. Get creative with flavor: If you find plain water boring, experiment with natural flavorings like lemon, cucumber, or mint. Infusing your water with fresh fruits or herbs adds a burst of flavor without any extra calories or additives.
  6. Pre- and post-workout hydration: Before and after physical activity, be sure to drink plenty of water to support your body’s performance and recovery. Hydration is especially crucial during exercise, as you lose fluids through sweat.
  7. Keep it accessible: Make water easily accessible by keeping a pitcher or dispenser filled in your home or workplace. Having water within reach encourages you to drink more throughout the day.
  8. Eat your water: Incorporate water-rich foods like cucumbers, watermelon, and strawberries into your diet. These hydrating foods not only contribute to your daily fluid intake but also provide essential vitamins and minerals.
  9. Listen to your body: Sometimes, feelings of hunger are actually signs of dehydration. Whenever you feel hungry, try drinking a glass of water first and see if your cravings subside. Your body might just be asking for hydration rather than food.
  10. End your day on a hydrated note: Finish off your day with a glass of water before bedtime. Hydrating before sleep helps replenish fluids lost throughout the day and ensures that your body stays hydrated overnight.

Celebrating the less commonly featured destinations alongside popular ones.

There’s been a collective yearning to reconnect with nature, to rediscover the beauty and tranquility that lie beyond our concrete jungles in recent months.

In this quest for solace and serenity, travelers are venturing off the beaten path, seeking refuge in destinations that offer a respite from the bustling crowds and frenetic pace of modernity.

From the serene lakes of the United Kingdom’s Lake District to the untamed wilderness of Australia’s Kimberley region, each of these locations beckons with the promise of natural splendour and rejuvenation. Join us on a journey to explore these hidden gems, where the rhythms of nature reign supreme and the soul finds solace amidst towering mountains, pristine coastlines, and ancient forests. It’s time to escape the chaos and embrace the timeless beauty of the great outdoors.

 

1. United Kingdom: Instead of the bustling streets of London or the historical charm of Edinburgh, let’s focus on the serene beauty of the Lake District. Nestled in northwest England, this region boasts stunning landscapes of lakes, mountains, and forests. Visitors can explore picturesque villages, embark on scenic hikes, or simply unwind amidst nature’s tranquility. The Lake District offers a peaceful retreat away from the usual tourist crowds.

Pulau Ubin provides a glimpse into Singapore’s quieter side, away from the glitz and glamour of the city.

 

3. New Zealand: While cities like Auckland and Queenstown often steal the spotlight, the Catlins region on New Zealand’s South Island offers a lesser-known but equally enchanting experience.

Visitors can explore hidden waterfalls, encounter seals and penguins, and marvel at dramatic coastal vistas. With its unspoiled beauty and peaceful atmosphere, the Catlins offers a truly off-the-beaten-path adventure in New Zealand.
