the Highly Effective ReliefBand

motion sickness and other problems. Worn on the wrist (acupuncture's P-6
meridian), the Reletex

vomiting without drugs or side effects. Reletex is available in 60- and

TO SUSPEND LIGHTSQUARED PLANS
The FCC will indefinitely
suspend LightSquared's authority to carry terrestrial broadband signals
on frequencies close to GPS frequencies after receiving a report that
concludes the two systems cannot currently coexist. The National
Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) wrote the FCC
on Tuesday (PDF) saying there was no immediate solution to
interference problems found in testing GPS units in the presence of the
types of signals that LightSquared is proposing. The FCC conditionally
allowed LightSquared to use frequency bands it owned adjacent to the GPS
bands provided it could prove the broadband wouldn't step on GPS. A year
of testing demonstrated serious and widespread interference according to
NTIA. LightSquared says it "profoundly disagrees" with those findings
and was fighting to have the FCC rule in its favor right up until the
decision was announced. The battle isn't officially over yet.

PRESIDENT'S SIGNATURE, FAA REAUTHORIZATION OFFICIAL
five years of trying to get a long-term FAA funding bill passed,
President Obama's signature on Tuesday was the last step required to
create a new four-year authorization bill. The $63.6 billion bill, which
runs until 2015, aims to provide consistent funding and support to help
upgrade to NextGen. "This is a great day for our National Airspace
System," said Paul Rinaldi, president of the National Air Traffic
Controllers Association. "This four-year bill will provide the funding
stability we need to develop and train our next generation of
controllers along with the next generation of equipment and procedures."

BUDGET WOULD CUT AIRLINE, AIRPORT FUNDING
The new Obama
administration budget proposal, released on Monday, had general aviation
about user fees, but other aviation sectors have also found cause
for concern. The Air Line Pilots Association was unhappy about proposed
cuts of $36 million from the Federal Air Marshal Service and $13 million
from the federal flight deck officer program, which trains volunteer
pilots to carry firearms on board. Lee Moak, president of ALPA, said
funding for the FFDO program is already "minimal," and any further
reduction "could very well lead to its ultimate demise." Airlines would
face increased security fees, as well as a $100 departure fee to help
cover the cost of the air traffic control system. Funding for
improvements at medium and large airports would be cut by 27 percent.

AIR SHOW ON
The biggest aviation event in Asia opened Tuesday
and as the world industry looks to that part of the world for much of
its future growth, the Singapore Air Show has loomed in importance for
manufacturers and suppliers. Boeing grabbed the spotlight with the
signing ceremony for a 230-plane deal with Lion Air worth almost $23
billion. That easily eclipsed the $10 billion previous record for this
show. Of course all the majors and most of the business jet OEMs are in
Singapore but Reuters is reporting that the big winners at the show may be
military contractors. More...

LAUD ASIA'S AEROSPACE FUTURE
Cessna says China will be in the
top ten of business jet markets by 2025 and other Asian countries will
combine to take a significant share of production. In a presentation at
the Singapore Air Show, Trevor Esling, Cessna's VP of sales for the
region said the performance of of the Asian market through the global
recession has positioned it for major growth in medium to long term.
"The region's economic resilience during the global financial crisis,
rising national prosperity and Chinese liberalization make it likely
that the business aviation market will mature at quite a rapid pace,"
Esling said. "Cessna, therefore, expects demand for light and mid-size
aircraft to rise accordingly." If the bizjet OEMs are optimistic, the
airline side is downright bullish. More...

WHERE'S MY FLYING CAR?
A practical flying
car with everyman usability has so far eluded the public, but we may
have already been introduced to a design that could lead to a
breakthrough. Some of the major challenges of producing a point-to-point
simple and safe to operate vehicle are technological in nature.
Autonomous navigation (enter the destination, press a button, and allow
the vehicle to navigate, communicate with, and autonomously avoid other
aircraft) may be one key to safely organizing masses of flying vehicles
in the same airspace. And as society progresses, the gap between the
dream and reality may be shrinking. More...
