Aurélie,

Thanks for sharing those links on the Phillips machine. A slightly more technical article on the same topic is "Can control theory save the economy from going down the tubes?" by Brian Hayes, which can be found at

As some of you know, I'm French. (I only came to the US ten years ago.) So I've been closely following the developments regarding the AF 447 inquiry, and I can't put in words how sad I feel about the loss of the 228 crew and passengers. Here are some relevant articles that will interest other French readers:

Story about other survivors http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090604/ap_on_re_eu/eu_brazil_would_be_passengers
Body of Air France Chief Pilot found http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/25/air-france-pilot-marc-dub_n_220609.html
I hope they didn't have time to get scared. May they rest in peace.
