She's the best thing about it, I agree, but it was too artificial for me, I didn't buy that this kid was the Antichrist from out of nowhere. If anything, it was a hunch Tilda's character had that got out of control like in a trashy horror flick. Best bits were the ostracising, that at least rang true.

Good rather than great psychological horror mostly imho.

It's another book I've always wanted to read but just gotten never round to it.
Same here.
There's a lot more detail about the background to it all. You think 'How did he learn to do that so young with no example?' but maybe it's just how people behave when they're missing some essential human quality like empathy.

Former Boeing 737 MAX Chief Technical Pilot Indicted for Fraud​

“Forkner allegedly abused his position of trust by intentionally withholding critical information about MCAS during the FAA evaluation and certification of the 737 MAX and from Boeing’s U.S.‑based airline customers,” said Assistant Attorney General Kenneth A. Polite Jr. of the Justice Department’s Criminal Division. “In doing so, he deprived airlines and pilots from knowing crucial information about an important part of the airplane’s flight controls. Regulators like the FAA serve a vital function to ensure the safety of the flying public. To anyone contemplating criminally impeding a regulator’s function, this indictment makes clear that the Justice Department will pursue the facts and hold you accountable.”

“In an attempt to save Boeing money, Forkner allegedly withheld critical information from regulators,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Chad E. Meacham for the Northern District of Texas. “His callous choice to mislead the FAA hampered the agency’s ability to protect the flying public and left pilots in the lurch, lacking information about certain 737 MAX flight controls. The Department of Justice will not tolerate fraud – especially in industries where the stakes are so high.”

“Forkner allegedly withheld crucial information about the Boeing 737 MAX and deceived the FAA, showing blatant disregard for his responsibilities and the safety of airline customers and crews,” said Assistant Director Calvin Shivers of the FBI. “The FBI will continue to hold individuals like Forker accountable for their fraudulent acts which undermine public safety.”​

A felonious farmer no doubt.

Footage released by Australian police show a dramatic chase that happened on Friday, with the suspect fleeing from officers in a tractor.

Queensland police say the man allegedly stole the front end loader, before using it to smash the front of a shop and steal two motorbikes.

Police vehicles then pursued the tractor through the streets and down railway lines.

The chase ended when the vehicle slipped down an embankment, where officers arrested the suspect on foot.
