  • Defense industry is pessimistic about deal to prevent sequestration
    The Pentagon and defense industry are preparing for $500 billion in budget cuts that are scheduled to go in effect at the end of the year, as hopes fade for a deal to prevent sequestration, analysts say. "I think there's a creeping sense of pessimism in the defense sector. ... I don't think most people in the industry really understand why their pleas have [been ignored]," defense analyst Loren Thompson says.

  • Potatoes save the day in Boeing engineering tests
    Boeing engineers employed unusual stand-ins for human airline passengers when they were conducting research on how to improve in-flight Wi-Fi signals: sacks of potatoes. The water content and chemical makeup of potatoes made the tubers a good substitute when real people couldn't be asked to sit motionless for days at a time during testing. "It's a testament to the ingenuity of these engineers. They didn't go in with potatoes as the plan," said Boeing spokesman Adam Tischler.
