I had a little bit of storage left over so I thought Id use it and make a quick round up of some of the latest news stories. Unfortunately I had to compress the file down to quite a low bit rate to make it fit, so the sound quality may not be great Sorry.

Anyway, there is a catch up with the latest for the search of MH370.

FAA cuts the Indians some slack.
