The German armed forces took delivery in December of the http://barnettfvxk.soup.io first of a total of 53 A400M aircraft that it has ordered, with http://pursiim.blog.com a further five due to be handed over this year. However, the defense ministry said last week there were signals from European defense equipment agency OCCAR, which is negotiating with Airbus on behalf of governments seeking to buy the planes, that A400M deliveries could be delayed. "The Airbus announcement of further A400M delays hits us at the most inconvenient time," Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen told Der Spiegel magazine in excerpts of an interview to published in Saturday's edition. "At stake is not just the image of the company, but also Germany's reliability as an alliance partner," she added. "Airbus seems to have a serious problem with its understanding of product quality." The minister said she expected Airbus to make every effort to minimise the impact of the delays on the armed forces. German military inspectors checked the first A400M plane in November and listed 875 defects, including missing insulation of electric http://free.yudu.com/item/details/2589570/Belgium-Consumer-Prices-Fall-For-Second-Month cables and leaked hydraulic oil on the main landing gear and tires, Spiegel reported, citing internal documents. A spokesman for Airbus said the company was in contact with its clients on the matter and declined to give further comment. This week a company executive said Airbus' Defence and Space division will reveal a revised 2015 delivery schedule for the A400M at the end of February.

Hollywood's Indie Film Pool Prepares For The Amazon Plunge - Yahoo News











"They have clearly been able to do it on the episodic side, I see no reason why they can't do it on the feature film side," said Franklin Leonard, founder of the Black List, a site where unproduced screenplays are shared with filmmakers and producers. "The real challenge will be getting filmmakers in the door go!! who want to make films for Amazon and giving those filmmakers the freedom to make the films that become '12 Years a Slave' or 'Birdman'," Kim Kardashian "upset" Because She Can't Get Pregnant Again he said. Amazon has already drawn Woody Allen to make a new TV series, his first foray onto the small screen. WINK TO STRUGGLING FILMMAKERS Most of Hollywood's big studios largely abandoned the dramatic film business to concentrate on action adventure blockbusters and sequels, where there is less risk among a built-in fan base and more likely financial reward. News of a new, deep-pocketed go here buyer in the independent sphere would always be welcome, but Amazon's decision to hire a big name in the independent film world to head up Amazon Original Movies drew special praise. "It's exciting, especially because it's led by Ted Hope, who has a pretty sterling track record in terms of filmmaking and projects that he's been involved with," said Ned Benson, who made his directorial debut with "The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby," released last year.

Australia Beat India To Signal World Cup Ambitions - Yahoo News











India's world record holder Rohit Sharma (138) smashed his sixth ODI International century to contribute more than half of his team's total but Mitchell Starc's career-best 6-43 restricted the visitors to 267-8. When the hosts replied, swashbuckling opener Aaron Finch proved he is not just a reckless slogger, compiling a composed 96 as Australia overwhelmed the target with one over to spare. Finch hit five fours and two sixes in his 127-ball knock but missed out on his seventh ODI century as Australia chalked up their second win in the tri-series, which also involves England. Australia's chase got off to a strong start with the openers putting on 51 runs before the dangerous David Warner (24) spooned a simple catch to Suresh Raina at extra cover. Shane Watson (41) also began aggressively but looked desperate when boundaries stopped flowing and lost his off-stump to left-arm spinner Akshar Patel going for a slog-sweep. Steve Smith (47), who punished India in the preceding four-test series, continued to trouble them, once again exposing the visitors' bowling limitations with his century stand with Finch. From 216-2, Australia lost four quick wickets to inject fresh excitement in the contest but eventually prevailed when James Faulkner hit the winning boundary off Bhuvneshwar Kumar. Earlier, Sharma did not threaten the record 264 he blasted against Sri Lanka last year but the Indian opener gave Australian bowlers an insight into his intentions ahead of next month's World Cup with an almost a run-a-ball knock. Opting to bat first, India slumped to 59-3 inside the first 13 overs before Sharma and Raina [source] (51) set about rebuilding the innings adding this website 126 for the fourth wicket.
