An Amazon Air plane crashed in February, killing all 3 people on board. Weeks earlier, several pilots said they thought an accident was inevitable.

An Amazon Air plane called CustomAir Obsession crashed on February 23, killing all three people on board. The cause of the crash remains unknown. In conversations with Business Insider before the crash, several pilots who fly planes for Amazon Air said they thought an accident was inevitable. These planes aren't owned by Amazon, and the people maintaining and flying these jumbo jets aren't Amazon employees. They're employees of Air Transport Services Group (ATSG) and Atlas Air Worldwide Holdin...

Whicker: Santa Anita desperately hopes Lasix ban can stop its own bleeding

In Houston, Jim McIngvale is known, very well known, as Mattress Mack. He built Gallery Furniture’s sales to $148 million per year, largely on the strength of his plainspoken TV ads. In one, he dressed up like a mattress. He opened up a showroom during Hurricane Harvey two years ago, so he could house and feed Houston’s victims. He also owns thoroughbreds. He once had a relative who suffered congestive heart failure. One of the prescribed drugs was Lasix in order to reduce fluids. McIngvale foun...

Leonard Bernstein Awkwardly Turns the Screws on Tenor Jose Carreras While Recording West Side Story (1984)

What have we here? Evidence that the Maestro is a monster? Or a behind the scenes reminder that Arrested Development’s wannabe actor Tobias Fünke is not too far off base when he says that to make it in “this business of show, you have to have the heart of an angel and the hide... of an elephant.” Both? Neither? Any way you slice it, the recording session above is not for your typical cast album. West Side Story, with a book by Arthur Laurents, music by Leonard Bernstein, and lyrics b...

Amazon took over the $176 billion market for cloud computing. Now it's using the same playbook in logistics.

A slew of industry experts say Amazon is prepping itself to take on FedEx and UPS.  Amazon says its network is only used to move goods in-house to manage its quickly-rising shipping costs. However, its network of ocean freight containers, trailers, fulfillment centers, cargo planes, and more is so large that not even Amazon could fill it, analysts say.  Amazon's moves in logistics lines up with how it launched Amazon Web Services, the company's cloud computing solution, which is now the leader...

Bright Sheng: My Father’s Letter and Bernstein’s Question

Video Presentations and Photography by Molly Sheridan Transcription by Julia Lu We’ve been wanting to talk with Bright Sheng for years, but given his teaching schedule at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor and his commitments to participate in performances of his music either as a pianist or a conductor all over the world, he has been difficult to pin down. But when we finally met with him on Presidents’ Day in his pied-à-terre across the street from Lincoln Center, it proved to be worth th...

‘Singers and Musicians’ Part 2: On Conductors, Identity, and Musical Segregation

When I wrote the first post in this series, “Singers and Musicians” and Why Our Language Matters, I expected there to be a strong response from the people in my closest circle of friends and colleagues. I was not expecting the response to be quite so far-reaching. While I don’t know how many times the article has been viewed, my own Facebook post with the article was shared over 150 times—certainly a new personal record! I think one of the reasons the article resonated with people so strongly is...

Joe Fiedler Brings Together Jazz and 'Sesame Street' on 'Open Sesame'

It's gotta be tough being a serious jazz musician. All those serious notes, all those tricky licks and grunty wild improvising. The small audiences. The sense among most folks that you play music that isn't any fun. Add to that doing it all on the trombone: the most awkward of horns, or so folks might have you believe.And trombonist Joe Fiedler is a serious jazz musician: brilliant and daring and no smooth-jazzer playing watered down goop. But MAN is he fun. Not only does he play his horn wi...

‘Leonard Bernstein’s Black America’

“[Lenny] marched in Selma with Harry Belafonte, he brought black conductors to Tanglewood in the ’50s and in the ’60s integrated the Philharmonic by hiring violinist Sanford Allen. To raise money for civil rights organizations, he also hosted jazz in the afternoon at his house, and when John F. Kennedy was assassinated, he called for André Watts to play Beethoven at the memorial.” Here’s a one-hour audio documentary by WQXR host Terrance McKnight on Bernstein’s activism for racial equaliy. – WQ...

BANK OF AMERICA: Wall Street is dead wrong on one of its major Apple forecasts (AAPL)

Wall Street analysts are far too pessimistic in their estimates for Apple's hardware sales over the coming years, Bank of America Merrill Lynch research analysts wrote in a note to clients. The rise of 5G will drive "significant" hardware and iPhone unit revenue growth in 2021, according to the firm. Shares of Apple have climbed nearly 18% so far this year, though they're still trading 26% below their record high hit last October. Follow Apple's stock price here on Markets Insider. A major f...

Apple quietly makes billions from Google Search each year, and it's a bigger business than Apple Music (AAPL, GOOG, GOOGL)

Google paid Apple $9.4 billion in 2018 to be the default search engine on the iPhone, according to a new Goldman Sachs estimate. This makes Google's payment to Apple worth as much as 23% of Apple's services business, which the company has highlighted as its growth engine as iPhone sales slow.  Google could pay Apple as much as $12.2 billion next year, according to Goldman's model. Still, Apple's services business may see slowing growth in the near future if it does not release a new content bu...

One of Apple's best-known analysts says an all-time low iPhone upgrade rate is going to cause more pain than investors realize (AAPL)

The rate at which iPhone users upgrade their devices is heading toward an all-time low, the Bernstein analyst Toni Sacconaghi said in a new report. Only about 16% of iPhones in use now are likely to be upgraded this fiscal year, he said. He added that iPhone owners who bought them new are likely to hold on to them for at least four years.

Political Music, Musical Politics: A Discussion Panel with Samuel Adler, Maria Grenfell, Aaron Jay Kernis, and Catherine Likhuta

The intersection of music and politics is perennially fascinating. Within the world of classical music, tenacious ideas about music’s aesthetic autonomy, its purported status as timeless Art-with-a-capital-A, often rub up uncomfortably with actual musical practice. How is it that Beethoven’s music of universal brotherhood could also serve as the anthem of an apartheid nation-state? At Bowling Green State University’s 39th Annual New Music Festival last October, composers Samuel Adler, Maria Gren...

China slowdown weighs on revenue growth at internet giant Alibaba

Internet giant Alibaba saw its revenue growth slow in the final three months of last year, in quarterly results likely to stir up concerns over the weaker China market, recently signalled to by US tech giants.  Alibaba saw net income jump 33pc to 30.96bn yuan (£3.5bn) in the three months to the end of December, and revenue rose 41pc to 117.28bn yuan.
