March 13 2019 - Boeing 737 Max 8 - There is still much confusion with the general public about what it means when an aircraft stalls, hardly ever explained by the news channels. Stall was an unfortunate choice of words for an engine that suddenly quits, while the aerodynamic stall in aviation means something very different and isn't related to the aircraft engine at all. An aerodynamic stall can best be described as the situation where there is not enough air flowing over the wings to create the amount of lift needed to hold up the airplane. A stall meaning to the general public is more related to automobiles when the engine quits, which should really be called an engine failure.
The 737 Max 8 has a stall avoidance device which will point the nose of the aircraft down if it thinks the nose is pointed too high. This system is disconnected when the aircraft flaps are extended for take off or landing, as the nose will be required to be high in such maneuvers. My guess is that as soon as the pilot retracts the flaps soon after takeoff, and the stall avoidance reengages, but the system is malfunctioning, will then try to point the nose of the aircraft down. The pilot can then disable the system, but being still close to the ground there is limited time for reaction. It has been reported today that other pilots have experienced this problem, but have fortunately been able to recover the aircraft.

|What is a Blog?
A blog is a discussion or informational website published on the World Wide Web consisting of discrete, often informal diary-style text entries (posts). Posts are typically displayed in reverse chronological order, so that the most recent post appears first, at the top of the web page. Until 2009, blogs were usually the work of a single individual, occasionally of a small group, and often covered a single subject or topic. In the 2010s, "multi-author blogs" (MABs) emerged, featuring the writing of multiple authors and sometimes professionally edited. MABs from newspapers, other media outlets, universities, think tanks, advocacy groups, and similar institutions account for an increasing quantity of blog traffic. The rise of Twitter and other "microblogging" systems helps integrate MABs and single-author blogs into the news media. Blog can also be used as a verb, meaning to maintain or add content to a blog.
Many blogs provide commentary on a particular subject or topic, ranging from politics to sports. Others function as more personal online diaries, and others function more as online brand advertising of a particular individual or company. A typical blog combines text, digital images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic. The ability of readers to leave publicly viewable comments, and interact with other commencers, is an important contribution to the popularity of many blogs. However, blog owners or authors often moderate and filter online comments to remove hate speech or other offensive content. Most blogs are primarily textual, although some focus on art (art blogs), photographs (photoblogs), videos (video blogs or "vlogs"), music (MP3 blogs), and audio (podcasts). In education, blogs can be used as instructional resources. These blogs are referred to as edublogs. Microblogging is another type of blogging, featuring very short posts.
