Sniff this - nasal spray helps phobias vanish
By Jonathan Leake
Science Editor

The discovery could turn out to be a breakthrough in the treatment of chronic fearfulness, which afflicts hundreds of thousands of people in Britain.

VIOLENT IN-FLIGHT FILMS DRAW PROTESTS FROM PARENTS
By Joe Sharkey
Jesse Kalisher, a photographer, is no fan of overhead movies on airlines, which he and others often characterize as dumb and dumber. Now he has become a critic. More and more, he says, violent and sadistic scenes are creeping onto those overhead screens.
And Kalisher - who often travels with his wife and two young children on his photo shoots - has decided to literally make a government case out of his complaints about the airlines\' movie choices.
"I wouldn\'t think twice about this stuff if I weren\'t a parent," he said. "But I am a parent, responsible for the safety of my kids, and I am not going to sit here and do nothing."

Safety Concerns Raised Over Aircraft Composites
Washington, DC, Oct. 8, 2007 – Aircraft composites, such as those used to build Boeing s new 787 Dreamliner, are sweeping all sectors of aviation. However, complicating the picture are emerging safety concerns, such as the prospect of faster and more toxic fires in any accident that involves these “miracle materials”.
This unforeseen and growing controversy will be front and center during a new webinar: “Aircraft Composites: How New Materials are Forever Changing Aviation”, scheduled for Thursday, November 15, 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (EDT) and sponsored by the web site, Aviation Today.

By David Wilkes

But Pablo Mason, whose handlebar moustache and love of flying made him a hero of the 1991 Gulf war, has been permanently grounded - and all for doing a Premiership football player a favour.
Captain Mason, who became an airline pilot after leaving the RAF, lost his job after taking Blackburn Rovers home on a private charter flight following a match in Finland in August.
