The 2015 US Disaster That Revolutionized Ship Crash Investigations

The police in Mauritius investigating the grounding of the oil spill ship, the Wakashio, revealed late last week that they were unable to obtain sound from the ship’s black box. 

That is not surprising, given how ship black boxes are configured, often with multiple microphones plugged in, recording to several audio tracks simultaneously. However, this only makes the case stronger

Arctic Science Mission Wraps Up as Research Ship Docks in Germany

After a year spent drifting across the top of the world, frozen in sea ice, a German research ship returned home on Monday, ending the largest Arctic science expedition in history, one aimed at better understanding a region that is rapidly changing as the world warms.

The ship, the Polarstern, docked at its home port of Bremerhaven nearly 13 months after it left Norway. In October, it became deliberately frozen into the ice north of Siberia, about 350 miles from the North Pole, and drifted north and west for thousands of miles, leaving the little remaining ice for good late last month between Greenland and Norway.

The expedition, with a rotating contingent of about 100 scientists, technicians and crew, encountered nosy polar bears, fierce storms that damaged equipment, thin ice conditions and, most critically, the coronavirus pandemic that scrambled logistics. There were also accusations of sexual discrimination and harassment aboard

Was An Engine Malfunction To Blame For The Wakashio Oil Ship Crash In Mauritius?

A series of statements last week by the Mauritian Police about the Voice Data Recorder (VDR) of the oil spill ship, Wakashio, has attracted a lot of attention in Mauritius.

There appears to be a divergence from the accounts offered by the Panama Maritime Authorities and what the Wakashio’s Voice Data Recorder reveals. 

It will be crucial that this discrepancy is properly investigated, to ensure the uncertainty surrounding the Wakashio does not continue to persist, given the impact the oil spill has had on the country which is still in a state of National Environmental Emergency.

Questions have also been asked about why other vessels

‘iPhone 12 Mini’ and ‘iPhone 12 Pro Max’ Said to Ship in November

Earlier today, Chinese leaker “Kang” shared allegedly accurate information for the products set to be announced at the upcoming Apple event on October 13, including details on the full iPhone 12 lineup.


According to the leaker’s information, which was later modified with corrections for product availability timeframes, the 5.4-inch “‌iPhone 12‌ Mini” will be available to preorder on November 6 or 7, with a launch date of November 13 or 14.

Meanwhile, the 6.7-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ Pro Max will allegedly be available to preorder on November 13 or 14, with a launch date of November 20 or 21.

Bloomberg believes that Apple will stagger the iPhone launches in 2020, while DigiTimes has previously suggested the two 6.1-inch ‌iPhone 12‌ models could come out first in October, with the 6.7 and 5.4-inch models to follow. Leaker Jon Prosser today has also claimed DigiTimes was correct earlier in the year.

Concerns About Tampering With Oil Fingerprinting In Mauritius Spill Ship Wakashio

Newspaper reports in Mauritius this week have raised concerns about tampering with the oil fingerprinting linked to the Japanese-owned vessel, the Wakashio. 

The vessel ran aground amid a network of highly protected areas in Mauritius at the end of July, and was responsible for the biggest oil spill in Mauritius history 12 days later, setting off a State of National Environmental Emergency in the country and an ecological crisis as endangered species on a highly protected reserve were directly impacted by the spill.

In the national Mauritian newspaper, the Le Mauricien on 4 October 2020, a full page is devoted to the concerns about the handling of the oil fingerprinting by the crew of the Wakashio

‘iPhone 12 mini’ & ‘iPhone 12 Pro Max ship mid-November, says leaker

A new leak claims that Apple’s new “HomePod mini” will be $99 and half the height of the original, plus details a release schedule for the whole of the “iPhone 12” range.

A leak originally posted on Chinese site Weibo but then relayed by previously accurate tweeter Ice Universe, claims to have full details of the rumored smaller HomePod, plus confirmation of the “iPhone 12” range Apple is expected to announce on October 13.

A translation of the original Weibo posting says, “HomePod Mini, priced at $99, 3.3-inch speaker, S5 processor.

Most places are scheduled for November 6/7, and will be released on 16/17. Please wait for the domestic release.”

The reference to a domestic release implies that these dates are for America, not China where the leak was posted.

At 3.3-inches, the HomePod mini would be just under half the height of the original HomePod. And at $99,

Can the Red Raiders right the ship with an upset of No. 24 Iowa State?

Texas Tech at No. 24 Iowa State

When: 2:30 p.m. Saturday at MidAmerican Energy Field at Jack Trice Stadium

Records: Texas Tech (1-2 overall, 0-2 Big 12); Iowa State (2-1, 2-0 Big 12)

Last meeting: Iowa State defeated Texas Tech 34-24 on Oct. 19, 2019, in Lubbock, Tx.

TV: ABC

What’s at stake?

This may only be Texas Tech’s fourth game, but it likely will decide the fate of the season and, possibly, Matt Wells’ future in Lubbock. It sounds dramatic, but the Red Raiders need this upset in a bad way. Texas Tech is tied with Oklahoma for eighth place in the conference.

Since Matt Campbell took over in 2016 the Red Raiders are 0-4 against the Cyclones, including an embarrassing 66-10 loss by Patrick Mahomes and company in Campbell’s first year. That year’s Iowa State team finished the year 3-9.
