British Airways says computer glitches causing delays

British Airways says computer glitches causing delays

Computer problems are causing long lines and flight delays for British Airways passengers worldwide, the BBC reported Saturday. Airline officials apologized for the 'global system outage' and said they were 'working to resolve the problem as quickly as possible.' >> Read more trending news  Heathrow Airport said it was 'working closely' with British Airways to solve the issue. British Airways announced later Saturday that it had canceled all flights from Heathrow and Gatwick for the rest of the day, according to Sky News. It is not known how many flights were affected, but passengers have reported issues at a number of airports through social media. Journalist Martyn Kent told the BBC he was sitting on a plane for 90 minutes at Heathrow Airport. He said the airplane’s captain told passengers the computer problems were 'catastrophic.' Philip Bloom said he had been waiting in Belfast on board a Heathrow-bound flight for two hours. 'We haven't been told very much just that there is a worldwide computer system failure,” he told the BBC. “We were told that we couldn't even get on other flights because they are unable to see what flights we can be moved to.' Bloom later said that his flight was able to take off and fly to London.

The National Weather Service is issuing a Red Flag warning starting at Noon today for Orange and Seminole Counties until 8 p.m. That means conditions are good for the spread of fires because winds will be increasing from the west or northwest up to 10 MPH and humidity will be falling to 30 percent or below. A red flag warning means that critical fire weather conditions are either occurring now or will shortly. A combination of strong winds...low relative humidity...and warm temperatures can contribute to extreme fire behavior. Also if you're at our east coast beaches, forecasters say there is a moderate risk of rip currents.  A small long period background swell will combine with a strong astronomical tide to generate a moderate rip current threat along area beaches today. The threat will be highest between 1:00 PM and 7:30 PM due to tidal effects. Beach goers should check local conditions and swim within site of a life guard. Never enter the ocean alone.
The starting pay for FHP Troopers hasn't changed in more than a decade, but that is finally going to change.   Since 2010, the Florida Highway Patrol has lost nearly 1,000 troopers and some state lawmakers point to low pay as the reason.   Lawmakers have passed a 5 percent pay increase for all state-level law enforcement officers starting on July 1.   While the move will increase the pay for a starting trooper, Florida still pays less than many surrounding states.   Starting pay for an FHP trooper is currently about $34,000, in Louisiana it is $47,000 and in Mississippi it is $38,000.   The drop in troops has caused the number of citations issued in Florida to drop as well.   Officials hope the bump in pay bump will help fill hundreds of empty positions.
Chipotle Mexican Grill said Friday that malware was used to steal customer card information at various restaurant locations.   The restaurant chain says hackers got access to card data from payment systems at some of its restaurants between March 24th and April 18th, including nearly 30 restaurants in Central Florida.   In a statement Chipotle said the malware accessed point-of-sale devices during a three-week span starting in late March. The malware searched for data including cardholder names, numbers, expiration dates and internal verification codes.   Chipotle is warning customers to look for unauthorized purchases on their account and report anything suspicious to banks and credit card companies.
Workers at Port Canaveral found an eight-foot alligator hiding under a conveyor belt Friday. Employees at Ambassador Services were walking toward the conveyor when they heard a hissing and snarling sound. Trappers were unable to coax the alligator out of the cargo area, so a forklift operator had to lift the platform. The gator was euthanized, and removed from the site. Workers said they aren’t sure how the gator ended up in the cargo area.
Melbourne Police have surrounded a home and say a suspect is barricaded inside. The home is reportedly at the intersection of Holland St. and Sadler Ln.  Melbourne Police indicate activity at the nearby intersection of Eau Gallie Blvd and Holland. Police shut down all westbound traffic of Eau Gallie at Croton Rd. because of the suspect. News 96.5 WDBO put out a call to Melbourne Police for an update on what’s happening. 
American singer Ariana Grande says she will return to Manchester for a benefit concert to raise money for attack victims and their families.  A suicide bomber killed 22 people and wounded scores of others minutes after Grande's concert at the Manchester Arena ended on Monday night.   Grande tweeted a statement that says 'I'll be returning to the incredibly brave city of Manchester to spend time with my fans and to have a benefit concert in honor of and to raise money for the victims and their families.'   She said details are still being finalized and she will 'have details to share ... as soon as everything is confirmed.'   Grande also said 'my heart, prayers and deepest condolences are with the victims of the Manchester attack and their loved ones.'

Few public answers to puzzle in Congressional IT investigation

An inquiry into possible wrongdoing by IT staffers employed by a number of Democrats in Congress has garnered more attention in recent days, after a prominent lawmaker gave a public tongue lashing to the Capitol Hill police chief, vowing “consequences” over his refusal to return computer equipment that is evidently part of the ongoing investigation.

At issue is a probe into a possible security breach involving Imran Awan, who has worked for Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) and other Democratic lawmakers, as a shared information technology worker.

Little has been made public by Capitol Police on what exactly is being investigated; news [More]
