Food for thought

first_img James Morton is a writer and former criminal defence solicitor The news that supermarkets have put withdrawn hamburgers back on the shelves reminds me of the days very early in my career when I did a bit of prosecuting for a small chain of supermarkets. I always had to ask for costs and a few shillings compensation for the spoiled item and one day I prosecuted a lady who had taken a piece of steak from the counter, put it between her thighs and, penguin-like, waddled out. Outside on the pavement she was tapped on the shoulder and, as it were, gave birth. I was surprised when there was no claim for costs. ‘We just rinsed it and put it back on the shelf,’ I was told. Prosecuting, even in this limited way, taught me a good deal. One of the things was never to be sarcastic or unpleasant for the sake of it. I once prosecuted a middle-aged lady accused of stealing a tin of salmon which, she said, had leaped off the shelf and into her bag. ‘Spawning time?’ I asked wittily. She was convicted and went to prison for 14 days. I’m not sure if she even had any convictions but life was a lot rougher in those days. I felt bad about it, and even worse when her husband made an appointment to see me a couple of months later. I thought he was going to complain but no, she had been caught again – and he wanted me to defend her. ‘Ask her what day it is,’ he said. She could not tell me, nor the month, nor who was on the throne. When I was being so clever at her expense the poor woman had been in the early stages of fast-developing dementia. On a happier note, after I had prosecuted one woman who had a number of children, she came to the office that afternoon and put £10 on the desk saying, ‘this is a retainer so you can’t get at any of my sons’. They became regular clients. My early prosecuting career came to a shuddering halt when I was asked to prosecute a man charged with fraud at the local greyhound track. It was something to do with switched tickets and I got absolutely nowhere on my cross-examination. It was only after I sat down that I realised too late how he had worked the trick.last_img read more

Boeing Selects Raytheon to Develop Active Electronically Scanned Radars for B-52 Bombers

first_imgBoeing has selected Raytheon to upgrade the radar for B-52 bomber planes. Under the contract, Raytheon will design, develop, produce and sustain active electronically scanned array radar systems for the entire U.S. Air Force B-52 fleet. The advanced radar upgrade will ensure the aircraft remains mission ready through 2050 and beyond. Low rate initial production is scheduled to begin in 2024.With AESA radar on board, the B-52 will gain improved navigation reliability to support nuclear and conventional missions. Raytheon’s B-52 radar is based on AESA technologies developed from the APG-79/APG-82 radar family. The B-52 will also benefit from improved mapping and detection range and an increase in the number of targets it can simultaneously engage. Along with improved capabilities that help crews see further and more accurately, Raytheon’s AESA radar offers greater reliability than the current system because it has no moving parts and uses modern operating software.According to Raytheon, its active electronically scanned array (AESA) systems, with game-changing performance and tactical advantages, are the cornerstone of current and future aircrafts. Providing incomparable detection, targeting, tracking, and self-protection capabilities, the AESA systems are yet another hallmark in the company’s evolving development of innovative radars in support of the warfighters. The Raytheon AESA radar family may be tailored to fit any platform’s size, space and requirements.last_img read more
