It has been an exciting week covering the Boeing 787 and there will be more on it in the future, don’t worry. However with all the time I have spent on the 787, I haven’t been following other airline related news. I figured I would share some of my favorite stories I missed:

Why Don’t Airlines Put More Ads In Planes?

I have enjoyed reading your post and I’m sure many others will too. FYI, early in the twentieth century a number of grading scales were suggested by which teachers rated student writing. Subsequently, many teachers only deemed it important to allot a letter grade to those papers, a grade scrawled out in ill-omened red ink. The grade did not explain what the teacher thought of the content, the mechanics, the style, or maybe the organization of the paper. The scholar was left to grasp the reasoning behind the grade on his / her very own, hoping to discover a solution by the time the following paper was due. However , by the 1950’s the way in which teachers approached papers started to change. Teachers spotted that letter grades alone were not helping scholars in sharpening their writing skills. Feedback will do you good and in the long term benefit the readers of your blog.
