Indonesian airline cancels Boeing order, citing passenger fear
JAKARTA/OSLO (Reuters) - Indonesian airline Garuda plans to cancel a $6 billion order for Boeing 737 MAX jets, it said on Friday, saying some passengers would be frightened to board the plane after two fatal crashes, although analysts said the deal had long been in doubt. The news came as another 737 MAX customer, Norwegian Air, played down the significance of a move by Boeing to make a previously optional cockpit warning light compulsory. Norwegian said that, according to Boeing, the warning light would not have been able to prevent erroneous signals that Lion Air pilots received before their new 737 MAX plane crashed off Indonesia in October, killing 189 people.

Of Course Netflix's Mötley Crüe Biopic Is Silly and Sexist. What's Worse Is How It Tries to Get Serious
This is a major marketing opportunity for an act that hasn't put out an album of new material since 2008. So of course it tries to balance enough rock debauchery to satisfy viewers' ids with a smattering of somber moments designed to evoke sympathy for—and preempt outrage toward—its cartoonish heroes.

Hillary Clinton replied to AOC's take down of Jared Kushner and we all need a minute
Brace yourself: AOC and Hillary Clinton have joined forces on Twitter to create a clapback so powerful that you may need to take a some deep breaths to compose yourself.It went down on Thursday night, when Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez tweeted a very straightforward "But his WhatsApp," after it was alleged that Jared Kushner had been communicating with foreign officials using WhatsApp.  But his WhatsApp https://t.co/kLO3ZHvdbO -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 22, 2019Kushner's behavior is obviously problematic on any number of levels, not least of which is that his father-in-law, President Donald Trump, ran his campaign against Hillary Clinton almost exclusively on the charge that she'd used a private email server while she was secretary of state. Lock her up, etc. AOC's tweet was a twist on the well-worn "But her emails" meme, which pops up on political Twitter every time the Trump administration does something shady. So it was especially potent when Hillary herself replied to AOC's tweet with a succinctly satisfying, "Tell me about it." Tell me about it. -- Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) March 22, 2019That's the stuff. Hillary is no dummy and no doubt knew this was exactly the kind of thing that AOC's sizable social media fanbase would go wild over. And, of course, AOC had the reaction that pretty much all of us had, which was to freak out in a reply tweet to Hill. !!! -- Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 22, 2019We can only hope that this exchang

Pound up but still faces pressure after Brexit delay deal
The pound rose Friday but was struggling to claw back its latest losses after the EU gave Britain a Brexit deadline extension, while equity markets were boosted by a positive lead from Wall Street. At a summit in Brussels, Prime Minister Theresa May was given until April 12 to push her divorce agreement through a fractious parliament next week. The sterling has come under pressure owing to the uncertainty in the past few days, falling to as low as $1.3004 Thursday, though it has recovered slightly and is still maintaining its position, helped by this week's dovish outlook on interest rates from the Federal Reserve.

New Zealand broadcasts Muslim call to prayer on day of mourning for mosque shooting victims
The Muslim call to prayer sounded out over Christchurch and around New Zealand on Friday, as thousands gathered to remember the 50 people killed by a lone gunman at two mosques a week ago. Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern joined about 20,000 people standing quietly at Hagley Park, in front of the Al Noor mosque where most of the victims were killed during Friday prayers last week. "New Zealand mourns with you. We are one," she said in a short speech, followed by two minutes of silence. Ms Ardern, who swiftly denounced the shooting as terrorism, has announced a ban on military-style semi-automatic and assault rifles. The country is under heightened security alert since the attack, and police said on Friday they were investigating a threat made against Ms Ardern on Twitter. Jacinda Ardern announced a swift national crackdown on guns Credit: REUTERS/Jorge Silva New Zealand Herald reported that a Twitter post containing a photo of a gun and captioned "You are next" was sent to the prime minister. Reuters could not verify this independently. The report said the account was suspended. Australian Brenton Tarrant, 28, a suspected white supremacist, has been charged with one murder following the Christchurch attack and was remanded without a plea. He is due back in court on April 5, when police said he was likely to face more charges. Most victims of New Zealand's worst mass shooting were migrants or refugees from countries such as Pakistan, India, Malaysia, In

Fox Entertainment Shows Off ‘Fresh Start' in Promo After Sell-Off to Disney (Video)
Fox wants viewers wary of the new slimmed-down version that it will be just fine after shedding most of its film and TV assets to Disney, which became official Wednesday.In a new promo that aired Wednesday night, Fox Entertainment — the programming unit of what is now known as "Fox Corporation" — ran through the list of shows including "9-1-1," "Empire," and "The Simpsons" that still air on the Fox broadcasting network, even if their studio is now owned by Disney.On Wednesday, Disney finalized its $71.3 billion purchase of 21st Century Fox's film and TV assets.After the sale, the remaining assets, a portfolio of news, sports and broadcast businesses, were formed into a new company called Fox Corporation. These include Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, Fox Broadcasting Company, Fox Sports (including cable networks FS1, FS2, Fox Deportes and Big Ten Network) and its local TV stations. That new company debuted on the NASDAQ Stock Market on Tuesday under the symbol "FOXA."Meanwhile, Disney takes over ownership of 20th Century Fox film and TV studio, cable networks FX, FXX and National Geographic, and certain cable and international television assets. Disney also acquires Fox's 30 percent stake in Hulu, giving it majority control. The new assets should strengthen Disney's position as a content behemoth, especially as it launches Disney later this year, its own streaming competitor to Netflix.Watch the video above.Read original story Fox Entertainment Shows Of
