LETTER TO THE EDITOR Governor Baker Is WRONG Not To Appoint Interim

first_imgDear Editor,With the unfortunate passing of our State Representative, Jim Miceli, most of the voters in both Tewksbury and Wilmington have no representation in the Massachusetts Legislature.The Governor has apparently decided not to name an interim representative, but rather wait for the fall election to fill this seat.This is particularly unfortunate as clearly Representative Miceli was especially good at citizens’ concerns.  Now we are left with 6 months of no one to whom to call with any problems or difficulties that we may have.As someone said so long ago “Taxation Without Representation is Tyranny.” Perhaps Governor Baker, not wishing to appear tyrannical, will grant we the unrepresented, a 6-month credit on our 2018 State Income Tax.

What The Texas Ruling Means For The Affordable Care Act

first_img Share After a federal judge in Texas ruled Friday night that the Affordable Care Act (ACA) is unconstitutional, proponents of the ACA are already vowing to appeal the ruling.The case was spearheaded by Attorney General Ken Paxton, who released a statement following Friday’s decision by Federal District Court Judge Reed O’Connor of Texas.“Today’s ruling halts an unconstitutional exertion of federal power over the American healthcare system,” Paxton said. “Our lawsuit seeks to effectively repeal Obamacare, which will give President Trump and Congress the opportunity to replace the failed social experiment with a plan that ensures Texans and all Americans will again have greater choice about what health coverage they need and who will be their doctor.”To get a better understanding of what the ruling means for the ACA, who would be impacted and what comes next, Houston Matters spoke with Dr. Vivian Ho, the director of the Center for Health and Biosciences at Rice University’s Baker Institute for Public Policy.What exactly was the ruling?Last year Congress eliminated the ACA’s individual mandate, which was a tax penalty that individuals would have to pay if they didn’t have insurance.“The judge decided that because Congress had eliminated the tax that individuals would have to pay if they did not have health insurance that the law is therefore no longer valid,” Ho told Houston Matters. “There had been proponents that said that the individual mandate was one of three legs on a three-legged stool that was essential for the Affordable Care Act, and therefore because it was no longer there you could invalidate the entire Affordable Care Act.”It dates back to a 2012 Supreme Court case ruling where the court determined that it was a legitimate tax. “And [the court] said that it was essential to the Affordable Care Act, and so therefore the judge is saying well since it was essential and it was eliminated than the entire law no longer stands,” Ho said.What do proponents of the ACA say?Some legal experts who disagree with the judge’s ruling say that it’s important to take into account Congress’ intent when the legislators voted to eliminate the individual mandate.“The legislators did not want to repeal the entire Affordable Care Act — they had a vote on that last year and decided not to repeal all of it,” Ho said. “Also I find it remarkable that the judge decided it was essential because that individual mandate was removed and we still have millions of people who signed up for health care insurance in 2019. Clearly it is not something that’s absolutely essential to the entire law.”Ezekiel Emanuel, who was one of the architects of the ACA, called the ruling “silly” in an interview with Morning Edition. “The mandate had no teeth because there was no tax penalty, and so it turns out it’s not essential to the law,” he said. “And if it’s not essential to the law you can’t invalidate the whole Affordable Care Act, just because the mandate might not be operative anymore.”What happens now?For the time being, nothing has changed on a day-to-day basis. “As of now the court did not discontinue the marketplace and the federal government is still keeping it in operation,” Ho said. “Everybody who bought insurance, they’re ok. And they’re likely to remain ok. I think there’s a high probability that that decision will be overturned and the marketplace will continue as it has been going.”What would the implications be?If the judge’s decision is upheld in the future, there would be far-reaching impacts on the country’s health care system. “People forget that the entire law is much bigger than just the marketplace. It effects everything in health care today,” Ho said. “We would have total chaos actually.”Medicare is among the elements that would be impacted. “If you were to invalidate that law the Center for Medicaid and Medicare services would have a hard time figuring out how they’re supposed to be changing their reimbursements for physicians and hospitals,” Ho said.Among the other aspects that would be impacted are coverage of birth control and a requirement that health care providers disclose their financial relationships with each other.What’s next?Before anything would change on a daily basis, the case would need to go to an appeals court and then potentially to the Supreme Court if the decision is upheld, all of which would take several years. “The Supreme Court would likely hear the case in October 2019 and a decision would not be handed down until 2020,” Ho said.Listen to the full interview with Ho in the audio above.last_img read more

Facebook Admits Zuckerberg Was Able to Delete Sent Messages Wants to Turn

first_imgFacebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg has had special privileges to delete private messages even after he sent them, the company admitted late Thursday in a response to a Techcrunch report.Variety has since learned that a Messenger retention feature, which automatically deleted sent messages after 90 days, had been available to multiple Facebook executives. The company promised to pause this type of auto-deletion of messages sent by its executives Friday, and is now looking to make a similar feature available to its users in the coming months.“People using our secret message feature in the encrypted version of Messenger have the ability to set a timer — and have their messages automatically deleted,” a company spokesperson told Variety Friday. “We will now be making a broader delete message feature available. This may take some time. And until this feature is ready, we will no longer be deleting any executives’ messages. We should have done this sooner — and we’re sorry that we did not.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Techcrunch reported late Thursday that it had spoken to multiple Facebook users who had exchanged messages with Zuckerberg on Facebook Messenger over the years. At least in one case, one of those users had a copy of those messages in an email. But in their Messenger history, Zuckerberg’s messages had mysteriously disappeared, making it look like people were talking to themselves.Confronted with this evidence, Facebook admitted that it had retracted some of Zuckerberg’s Messenger messages for corporate security reasons. “After Sony Pictures’ emails were hacked in 2014 we made a number of changes to protect our executives’ communications,” the company told Techcrunch. “These included limiting the retention period for Mark’s messages in Messenger. We did so in full compliance with our legal obligations to preserve messages.”Facebook likely referenced the Sony hack because it resulted in the public disclosure of insider information about one of its key competitors, Snapchat maker Snap Inc. The emails that leaked after the Sony hack included some from former Sony Pictures Entertainment CEO and chairman Michael Lynton, who was also a board member of Snap at the time, and who had exchanged emails with a Snap executive about the company’s acquisitions and product road map. After the hack, Lynton resorted to faxing his memos for some time; he went on to leave Sony and become Snap’s chairman.This latest scramble wraps up a hectic week for Facebook, during which its senior executives went on a media tour to limit the outfall in response to the Cambridge Analytica scandal. Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg used a series of TV interviews as well as a call with reporters to apologize for the company’s past failures. Most of these appearances were light on news, but Zuckerberg did on Wednesday commit to making product changes the company has to implement in response to new European privacy regulations available worldwide. And on Thursday, Sandberg revealed that some advertisers had paused their campaigns in light of recent revelations. Popular on Variety last_img read more

Etihad Airways expands its codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines

first_imgThe national airline of the United Arab Emirates, Etihad Airways, recently announced the expansion of codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines to give air travellers enhanced connections between Australasia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America.Both the airlines have obtained regulatory approval to codeshare on nine additional routes, bringing the total number of services in their codeshare agreement to 14.As per the expanded codeshare agreement, Hong Kong Airlines has placed its ‘HX’ code on Etihad Airways’ flights between Abu Dhabi and a number of the most-visited cities in Europe and North America, which includes Paris, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, Manchester, Milan, Munich, New York and Zurich.Etihad Airways has placed its ‘EY’ code on scheduled flights of Hong Kong Airlines, between Hong Kong and Auckland in New Zealand.Kevin Knight, Chief Strategy and Planning Officer at Etihad Aviation Group, said, “Our codeshare agreement with Hong Kong Airlines was initiated in 2014 with a primary focus on enhanced connectivity between Asia and the Middle East. Ever since then, we have continuously reviewed opportunities to provide improved offerings and greater access to our customers in Hong Kong, Abu Dhabi and beyond.”“The expanded codeshare will drive commercial opportunities for both airlines, and more importantly unleash the true benefits of the partnership by offering business and leisure travellers enhanced connections and a more frequent service between Australasia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and North America,” Knight added.Li Dianchun, Chief Commercial Officer of Hong Kong Airlines, said, “We are glad to strengthen the partnership with Etihad Airways through a codeshare expansion.

On the other hand, the visitors from the GCC region and even Europe will also enjoy convenient connections via Hong Kong to Auckland, one of the most popular destinations in the southern hemisphere. We have no doubt the enhanced connectivity will provide a wider range of choices while experiencing the world-class services and products offered by both airlines.”Etihad Airways would increase the frequency of its Madrid service from four flights a week to daily from June 1, 2017, with Hong Kong Airlines also codesharing on the additional flight.last_img read more

Obama said Friday that the UK vote to leave the European Union would not change the “special relationship” the country has with the United States Speaking at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit at Stanford University Obama said he had talked to British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel about working together in the coming months “I do think that yesterday’s vote speaks to the ongoing changes and challenges that are raised by globalization” he said Here are his complete remarks from the summit here: Thank you Hello everybody Thank you so much Thank you Thank you Thank you very much Thank you Everybody have a seat Thank you so much Thank you Thank you so much That is a good-looking group Thank you Well first of all let me thank President Hennessy for the introduction and the entire Stanford family for letting us take over the campus for a few days As some of you know John is stepping down after 16 years as president of Stanford Fortunately for me I cannot do that to just stick around longer than my term limit John I’m sure there are some people who want you to stick around longer but I’ve — I’m confident that you’re going to do extraordinary things and we could not be prouder of John Hennessy and Stanford and all the great work that they have done So please give him a big round of applause (APPLAUSE) Now summer break — just so all of you Stanford is not always this quiet This school is unique Folks ride on bicycles everywhere and athletes are also computer engineers This is the place that made nerd cool So… (APPLAUSE) So we are thrilled to be here I know that I am not the first speaker that you’ve heard from but many of you have traveled here from a long ways We’ve got more than 170 countries from every region in the world represented Some of you this is the first time you are visiting our country So let me just say on behalf of the American people not only welcome to our Global Entrepreneurship Summit but welcome to the United States of America We are glad to have you (APPLAUSE) I am not going to give a long speech because what I really want to do is have a conversation with some outstanding young people who are part of our panel and we’re going to introduce in a moment But I do want to begin by offering some opening thoughts about the time in which we gather here today And I’m going to start with the British people’s decision to leave the European Union the vote that took place yesterday Just a few — a few hours ago I spoke with Prime Minister David Cameron David has been an outstanding friend and partner on the global stage and based on our conversation I’m confident that the UK is committed to an orderly transition out of the EU We agreed that our economic and financial teams will remain in close contact as we stay focused on ensuring economic growth and financial stability I then spoke to Chancellor Merkel of Germany and we agreed that the United States and our European allies will work closely together in the weeks and months ahead I do think that yesterday’s vote speaks to the ongoing changes and challenges that are raised by globalization But while the UK’s relationship with the EU will change one thing that will not change is the special relationship that exists between our two nations That will endure The EU will remain one of our indispensable partners Our NATO alliance will remain a cornerstone of global security and in a few weeks we’ll be meeting in Warsaw for the NATO Summit And our shared values including our commitment to democracy and pluralism and opportunity for all people in a globalized world That will continue to unite all of us And that is the work that brings us here today OBAMA: The world has shrunk It is interconnected; all of you represent that interconnection Many of you are catalyzing it and accelerating it It promises to bring extraordinary benefits But it also has challenges And it also evokes concerns and fears And so part of why this Global Entrepreneurship Summit has been so close to my heart something that I’ve been so committed to is because I believe all of you represent all the upside of an interconnected world — all the optimism and the hope and the opportunity that that interconnected world represents But it’s also important in these discussions to find the ways in which we are expanding and broadening the benefits of that interconnection to more and more people And that’s what so many of you are going You know we’re gathered here at Stanford in the heart of Silicon Valley which is one of the great hubs of innovation and entrepreneurship not just for America but for the world This is a place that celebrates our ability as human beings to discover and learn and to build and question to reimagine to create new ways to connect and work with each other It’s where two guys in a garage Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard launched a global company; where student projects became Yahoo and Google Those were really good student projects (LAUGHTER) My student projects weren’t as good (LAUGHTER) It’s where entrepreneurs like so many of you get an idea and you build a team and you work to turn into a reality and you launch products and companies and entire industries that transform the world That’s the power of entrepreneurship And it’s never been more important In today’s world where our economies have undergone dramatic shifts where businesses don’t stop at borders where technology and automation have transformed virtually every industry and changed how people organize and work entrepreneurship remains the engine of growth — that ability to turn that idea into a reality a new venture a small business that creates good-paying jobs It puts rising economies on the path to prosperity and empowers people to come together and tackle our most pressing global problems from climate change to poverty When people can start their own businesses it helps individuals and families succeed It can make whole communities more prosperous and more secure It offers a positive path for young people seeking the chance to make something of themselves and can empower people who have previously been locked out of the existing social order — women and minorities others who aren’t part of the old boys’ network Give them a chance to contribute and to lead And it can create a culture where innovation and creativity are valued where we don’t just look at the way things have always been but rather say how could things be Why not Let’s make something new This spirit speaks to something deep inside of all of us No matter who we are what we look like where we come from you look out across this auditorium you’re all of different backgrounds and cultures and races and religions Some of you are from teeming cities other of you are — are working in small rural villages But you had that same spark that same creative energy to come up with innovative solutions to old challenges And entrepreneurship is what gives people like you a chance to fulfill your own dreams and create something bigger than yourselves We live in a time when more than half the world is under the age of 30 And that means we’ve got to make sure that all of our young people around the world have the tools they need to start new ventures and to create the jobs of the 21st century and to help lift up entire populations OBAMA: And so many of you are already doing this As I travel around the world one of the extraordinary things that I had the opportunity to do is to meet young people in every region and to see the problem solving and the energy and optimism that they’re bringing to everything from how to generate electricity in environmentally sound ways in remote places that are off the grid right now to how do you employ women in remote areas who all too often have been locked out of opportunity You just see enormous creativity waiting to be tapped And part of our job part of this summit’s job is to make sure that we’re put more tools more resources into the hands of these folks who are changing the world and making sure that all of you know each other so that you can share best practices and ideas and spread the word Now I know that the daily reality is not always as romantic as all this Turns out that starting your own business is not easy You have to have access to capital you have to meet the right people you have to have mentors who can guide you as you get your idea off the ground And that can be especially difficult for women and young people and minorities and others who haven’t always had the same access to networks and opportunities You deserve the same chance to succeed as everybody else We’ve got to make sure that everybody has a fair shot to reach their potential We can’t leave more than half the team on the bench That’s why we’ve invested so much time and effort to make sure that America is helping to empower entrepreneurs like you So we held our first summit back in 2010 Since then we’ve brought entrepreneurs like you together in Turkey and the Emirates and Malaysia Morocco Kenya and all told we’ve helped more than 17000 entrepreneurs and innovators connect with each other access capital find partners and start new ventures 17000 (APPLAUSE) I think of the Tanzanian startup that helps farmers reduce their harvest losses or the company in Nepal that’s helping to improve charity (ph) healthcare There are 11 Cubans who are today the first Cubans to join us in one of these summits (APPLAUSE) Hola Mucho gusto They’re ready to help create new opportunities for the Cuban people Where are they There they are (APPLAUSE) I want to thank Antonio Gracias a leader in private equity and one of our presidential ambassadors for global entrepreneurship because his support was critical in bringing these young Cuban entrepreneurs here So that’s deserving of a hand (APPLAUSE) I’m also pleased to announce that we have a new group of business leaders signing on as entrepreneurship ambassadors This is something that we started as part of the summit and they have put their time energy effort and in some cases their money behind entrepreneurs around the world So our new ambassadors; Sara Blakely CEO of Spanx (APPLAUSE) Jane Wurwand CEO of Dermalogica (APPLAUSE) Stephen Jurvetson partner at Draper Fisher Jurvetson And… (APPLAUSE) Patrick Collison CEO of Stripe (APPLAUSE) Now supporting entrepreneurs isn’t just something we do around the world it’s also a key part of how we create jobs and fuel innovation here in the United States That’s why we’re working with communities to streamline the process for launching a company Startup in a day That’s why we’re expanding Innovation Corps our program to equip more scientists and engineers with entrepreneurial skills And it’s why at this summit dozens of top tech companies from giants to startups are committing to make their technology work forces look like America including by publishing data on diversity each year and developing the tech talent of people from all backgrounds We’re very happy for the commitments that they’ve made so give them a big round of applause for that (APPLAUSE) OBAMA: Here at this summit we’re also building on our progress with new commitments from government and business and philanthropists So at last year’s Paris climate talks for example Bill Gates and other top global investors committed to partnering with governments in cutting edge clean energy solutions Today we’re launching an initiative to connect some of these global investors and others with clean energy entrepreneurs from developing countries We’re also announcing the Young Trans-Atlantic Innovation and Leaders Initiative which will bring 200 of Europe’s innovators to the United States each year to develop their skills (APPLAUSE) And we’ve got organizations like Endeavor which supports entrepreneurs starting a $100 million fund to invest in companies across Latin America and the Middle East in Africa and Southeast- Asia (APPLAUSE) Investment firms like Capria Ventures which will help fund international startups So these are just a handful of the commitments and I suspect new ventures that are going to come out of this year’s summit So all of you budding entrepreneurs don’t be shy while you’re here Talk to the experts and make your pitch network with potential investors Find that mentor who might help you navigate through a tough patch connect with your fellow innovators Because ultimately the world needs your creativity and your energy and your vision You are going to be what helps this process of global integration work in a way that is good for everyone and not just some I’ve spoken about this before I believe we are better off in a world in which we are trading and networking and communicating and sharing ideas But that also means that cultures are colliding and sometimes it’s disruptive and people get worried You’re the bridge you’re the glue — particularly the young people who are here who can help lead toward a more peaceful and more prosperous future that provides opportunity for everybody And because this is about more than just this one event or for that matter this one president we’re going to make sure that the United States continues to help developing the next generation of entrepreneurs We are very proud to announce that next year’s Global Entrepreneurship Summit will be hosted in India (APPLAUSE) Got the Indian contingent in the house I’m — you know I’ll try to stop by if I’m invited (LAUGHTER) But the point is I believe in you and America believes in you And we believe that you have the talent and the skills and the ambition not just to pursue your dreams but to realize them that you can lift up not just your own families but communities and countries and create opportunity and prosperity and hope for decades to come That’s the promise that we see in all of you And that is the promise that we see in our outstanding panelists that you’re going to hear from Mia Medot (ph) of Egypt who is a software engineer who started a company called Eventis which is a one-stop online shop for people who organize events Jean Bosco Nzeyimana of Rwanda who is the founder and CEO Of Habona Ltd, The suit also seeks an acknowledgment from the defendants that they

note of regret that a former Pakistan Air Force (PAF) fighter pilot sent out to the daughter of a distinguished Indian pilot whose defenceless civilian transport aircraft he shot down on the last day of the 22-day war of 1965 The Pakistani pilots note was unusualas such sentiments are not usually expressed in this perennially hostile relationshipeven if the hint of regretif anywas entirely qualified In briefon the last day of that pointless war of attritionor rather a war of competitive military incompetencea Beechcraft owned by the Gujarat government was shot down by a Pakistani Sabre jet in Gujaratinside Indian territory Its eight unfortunate occupantsbesides the crew and a Gujarat Samachar reporterincluded the then Gujarat chief minister Balwantrai Mehta and his wife Mehtaa Congress stalwartthus became the firstand onlypolitician ever to be killed in wartime action in the subcontinent The note of the Pakistani pilotQais Hussainhas given us the chance of revisiting a question that has never been debated freely in India That question isjust how wellor poorlydid the Indian Air Force (IAF) do in the war of 1965 For nearly half a century nowIndia has nurtured a mythology consciously constructed during and in the aftermath of that war: the mythology of the Indian superiority in airof the little Gnats invincibilityand so on A part of that myth-making was alsoand one has to be very careful saying that given how much respect three generations of Indiansincluding this writerhave held him inthe lionisingsubsequentlyof the then air chiefAir Marshal Arjan Singh (A wonderful pilot and leaderhe remains the only IAF officer to be elevated to the rank of Marshal of the Air Force) This latest revelation now attacks that carefully cultivated mythology Military history is serious business It is also brutal Because not only is the early history mostly written by the winner (which none was in 1965overall)it also rarely resembles the purple prose of the gallantry citations The simple question iswhat kind of control over our own airspace did we have that a PAF Sabre was loitering inside and shot down a civilian VIP aircraft Of courseno air force can guarantee that not even a single enemy aircraft would be able to enter its airspace unchallenged Butnearly a half-century after that inconclusive war there is no harm taking a more robust and questioning view of what exactly happened thenin the airand of how we were able to create such a fictional history afterwards It is one thing for the Pakistanis to build such mythologiesand then perpetuate these through chapters in school textbooks But in Indiawe should have exhibited better sense of inquiryand self-questioning If we fought that war in the air as well as we believehow come we lost 75 aircraft to Pakistans 28 As many as 37 of our losses were on the groundcompared with eight of the PAF (claimed to have been) destroyed by us This only underlines that the PAF did a much better job of attacking rival airbases than us On the very first day of that warthe IAF opened the campaign losing all four of the Vampires (then possibly the slowest moving jet fighter in the world) sent out to help our beleaguered army units in Chhamb Why these totally vulnerable (and by then not combat-worthy) aircraft were sent out when better options were availableis not a question that has often been asked by Indian military historians This was followed by three other disasters that set the IAF back rudely in that war Three days into the waron September 6eight PAF Sabres attacked the Pathankot airbasebristling with combat activity The base commanders somehow ignored even warnings from Amritsar radar (conveyed over the phone) and neither scrambled fightersnor dispersed aircraft on the ground The Sabres fired unchallengedand India lost 10 aircraft on the groundincluding two of our most vaunted MiG-21s out of the nine that had so far arrived as our first half-strength supersonic squadron This loss of 10 was then followed by another 10 in WW II-stylebravebut chaoticraids over Sargodha The Pakistanisof coursemade highly exaggerated claims and celebrate that daySeptember 6as Defence of Pakistan Day and hold triumphal military parades But the fact is that on this day the IAF suffered severe lossesfollowed by more self-inflicted (through command indecision) losses on the ground as the PAF attacked our eastern airfields It is now a well-documented fact by non-official historians that the IAF had planned pulverising raids on Pakistani air assets in the east and had even launched fully loaded aircraftwhich were called back when they had the targets in their bomb-sites and Delhi got nervous about irritating the Chinese The PAF Sabres came more or less on the tail of the returning IAF formationshitting almost all the major IAF bases in the eastparticularly West Bengal Surelythe IAF did much in subsequent days to restore the balance Its gallant defence of Halwara and Adampur in Punjab resulted in the PAF stopping daylight raids on its air basesfor example Some of its Gnat and Hunter squadrons demonstrated they had the measure of the Pakistanisin tactics as well as skill There was no dearth of courageever One story you can reconstruct with pride is of an audacious plan to lure out the Sabres into combat after the very first loss of the four Vampires Because it was presumed that the PAF was greedy over the prospect of shooting slow-moving Vampiresa formation of slow and large Mysteres was led by Wing Commander WM Goodman to lure the Sabreswith Squadron Leader Johnny Greenes formation of six Gnats lurking behind them Sure enoughthe Sabres took the bait and gave the IAF its first two successes of that war even as the Mysteres exited safely Butoverallthe PAF had greater sway over the skies in daytime And at nightthey pretty much had a free run as the IAF fighters were not night-capable The IAF and the defence establishment have avoided facing that truth Thisin spite of the fact that 1971 marked the IAFs finest hour It attacked relentlesslynever suffered a setbackand never yielded the PAF any space In Indiawe only have to be grateful to two young writer-researchersPVS Jagan Mohan and Samir Chopra (The India-Pakistan Air War of 1965Manohar2006Rs 895) who have put together a remarkably accurate and honest history of the 1965 war we have tried hard to forget But which this part confession by a Pakistani pilot has now brought back to us Postscript: Wing Commander MSD (Mally) Wollen was commanding the still forming MiG-21 squadron in that war He had the mortification of seeing his MiG blown up on the ground at Pathankoteven as he jumped into a water tankin full flying liveryto duck the strafing Sabres Earlier he had fired both his missiles at a Pakistani Sabre from an impossible angle and rued the fact that the first MiGs did not have any cannons on them I was privileged to have a conversation with him in Shillong in 1982 whennow an Air Marshalhe commanded the Eastern Air Command A couple of new books had just been published on the air war of 1965 (notably John Frickers very loadedpro-Pakistani account) and I asked him what went wrong in 1965 Wollen spoke with honesty not common to the Indian military establishment He saidof coursethings had gone wrong and we had analysed why Whyhe askeddid some squadrons with the same aircraft do very well and some poorly Thats because a fighting squadron is just about 16 pilots In any group of 16 peoplehe saidyou would find a few that would be totally fearless and competenta few who would become fearless again in the company of theseand the rest who would then be simply positively overwhelmed by this peer pressure The IAF realisedhe saidthat in the rush of the post-1962 expansionits fighter squadrons were not properly balanced Some had too many of his first categoryand did brilliantlyand some had too few and did poorly On that cold Shillong eveningI learnt a lesson
