    FAA Bans Recalled MacBook Pros From Flights
    The Federal Aviation Administration has “banned select MacBook Pro” units from flying in the air after Apple issued a warning that some contained batteries that pose a fire risk, Bloomberg reported on Tuesday.

    The ban applies to some 15-inch MacBook Pros with Retina Displays sold between September 2015 and February 2017; these were subject to a June 2019 Apple recall warning of a “fire safety risk” if the laptops continued to be used without receiving replacement batteries. The FAA said in a statement to Bloomberg that it was “aware of the recalled batteries that are used in some Apple MacBook Pro laptops,” adding that it had alerted airlines to the issue.

    First, you will have to turn your MacBook Pro on, log in, and show them your unit model name in the “About This Mac” from the Apple menu. Assuming they have the information readily available to compare, the boarding gate peeps can then discard any computers that don’t say “MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015)”

    If your model is a MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015), then you will need to go to this page and enter your serial model, which is located in the System Information app or in the “About This Mac” panel. If the page says your computer is fine, then you can fly.

    If your computer is flagged but it has already went to Apple for repair, then you will have to show proof of the repair to the airline people and hope they let you in.

    Serial killer or Vigilante? “El Juguetero” (the Toy Man) is killing car thieves in Culiacán
    The Attorney General of the State of Sinaloa announced that they are investigating a case that involves multiple murders; in which the killer leaves toy cars with their victims’ bodies.

    After five homicides in Culiacán, Sinaloa, with the same modus operandi, the State Attorney General’s Office announced that the author, an alleged serial murderer nicknamed “El Juguetero” (the Toy Man), is already under investigation.

    According to a statement from the Prosecutor’s Office, in the five murders toy carts were left on top of the victims’ dead bodies. Who could be a “Vigilante” that is killing car thieves in Culiacán. Apparently, the number of toys left behind represents the number of vehicles the victim had stolen.

    Fiestas for French Royalty
    Sidebar: When you see children dressed for Spring or soldiers on display, that is a parade as it is a civic based event. A procession is a faith-based event. You may cross the parade route but don’t cross in front of a procession. If I’m with 20 other lads sweating bullets carrying a heavy statue and you cross in front us, one of those men will leave me with the extra weight and track you down like a dog to embarrass you in public for crossing in front of God. It’s simply bad form on your part and best to practice patience.

    Gas Flaring “Running Rampant” In The Permian
    Gas flaring in the Permian basin is “running rampant,” and may not be fully resolved even after new gas pipelines come online.

    Texas is now one of the world’s largest sources of gas flaring in the world, according to an investigation from Energy Intelligence. ...

    Ultimately, the industry finds it more profitable to burn the gas. Recently, in a closely watched case, the Texas RRC approved a flaring permit request from Exco, a small driller in the Eagle Ford. The reason the case saw extra scrutiny was because Exco was not requesting a flaring permit due to a lack of access to pipelines. Exco had access, but didn’t want to pay for it, and instead preferred to simply flare the gas. The Texas RRC sided with the driller, saying that the cost of pipeline access might force Exco to shut down the well. Better to let Exco flare, regulators argued.
