Experts say the plane and engine used by United have a safe track record - and the scary landing in Colorado should have minimal impact on the airline

The United Airlines Boeing 777-222 that experienced an in-flight engine failure. AaronP/Bauer-Griffin/GC Images A United Airlines jet made an emergency landing after an engine failure on Saturday.

Seattle City Light’s Georgetown Steam Plant

  The old Georgetown Steam Plant is only open once a month — the second Saturday, and there are two tour. You don’t have to take the tour to get a look around but you should because, as the woman at the door said, “It’s just so freaking cool.” She was not wrong.   The 10am tour guide, a talkative guy named Mike, said that even though he works for Seattle City Light, he’s not an engineering guy. “You gotta ask Ted about that stuff, I’m more of a history guy.” I think he underestimated his skill...

On November 8th, she went out for the...
