The difference may help explain why pilots struggled to keep their aircraft climbing after takeoff on two fatal 737 MAX flights less than five months apart that killed 346 people. Pilots of a Lion Air flight that crashed in October scoured a handbook for answers as the plane repeatedly lurched downward in the first minutes of flight, Reuters reported.<p><br clear="all">China probes factory blast after 62 killed<p><a href="https://news.yahoo.com/death-toll-china-chemical-plant-blast-jumps-44-022330621.html"><img src="http://l1.yimg.com/uu/api/res/1.2/rOPlSd615ZMVT_p9HN3Pzg--/YXBwaWQ9eXRhY2h5b247aD04Njt3PTEzMDs-/http://media.zenfs.com/en_us/News/afp.com/ddc8d91737ada7dbf16317242a13764adf54b9f4.jpg" width="130" height="86" alt="China probes factory blast after 62 killed" align="left" title="China probes factory blast after 62 killed" border="0" ></a>Chinese President Xi Jinping ordered local governments Friday to prevent any more industrial disasters after a chemical plant blast left 62 people dead, injured hundreds and flattened an industrial park in the latest such catastrophe to hit the country.

Unfortunately, not everyone has that luxury. Today is World Water Day, and this year, the theme is &quot;Leaving no one behind.&quot; With the goal of ensuring access to fresh water for everyone, World Water Day hopes to draw attention to an issue that impacts the health and livelihood of billions of people around the world. According to the United Nations, 2.1 billion people don&apos;t have access to safely-managed drinking water. In particular, the campaign points to marginalized groups like women, children, refugees, and more, who they say can be ignored or discriminated against when trying to access water. But there are ways to offer assistance. Organizations on Twitter have a wealth of tools, information, and resources that will show you how to make a difference. Here are seven useful tweets to read, like, and share to understand more about the situation at-hand and what role you can play in mitigating a real crisis. 1. Understand the role of fresh water in agriculture And the right answer is...70% of all freshwater is used for agriculture globally.

Learn how much your daily cup costs How much water was in your coffee this morning? ?It might only have 250ml of actual water in it, but the water it takes to produce your morning cup is 1000 times that!With 1 in 9 living without water, thoughtful consumer choice can help ensure access for all.#WorldWaterDay pic.twitter.com/sEiFhIQb31 WaterAid UK An invalid character was found in text content.
