Aircraft in service is exposed to dynamic load that may degrade its aerodynamic and flight characteristics. To ensure timely maintenance and efficient aircraft operations it is necessary to know and keep track of aircraft’s actual performance. Existing methods for monitoring aircraft performances rely on monitoring fuel consumption and changes in specific range. Knowledge of aircraft aerodynamic characteristics would allow determination of broader range of flight performance characteristics. The aim of this paper is establishment of research framework for aerodynamic characteristics monitoring using data collected from regular commercial flights.

Introduction: As journalists’ we have had to modify traditional media to web-based newspapers and learn to produce live information regarding situations. Technology has not only changed the traditional practices of journalist but has challenged strategic communication methods as well.

Abstract In our democratic society, mass media is the driving force of public opinion. Media sources such as Internet, newspaper, news-broadcasts, etc, play significant roles in shaping a person’s understanding and perception about the events occurred in our daily lives. As long as the newspapers, internet, network television, etc, continued to be easily accessible to the public, the media will continue to have an influence in shaping its opinions. Factors such as agenda-setting, framing and priming help shape the public opinions. Agenda-setting is when the media focuses their attention on selected issues on which the public will form opinion on, whereas framing allows the media to select certain aspects about the problem and then make them appear more salient.
