Newborn on JetBlue flight to Florida motivates name change for plane

An infant was born on a JetBlue flight from San Juan, Puerto Rico, to Fort Lauderdale, Florida, the aircraft affirmed on Saturday.

Flight 1954 invited what the aircraft authoritatively named their “youngest customer to date” on the Friday flight and now the airline needs to rename the jet, which was unexpectedly as of now named “Born to Be Blue,” after the infant.

“We’d like to thank the crew and medical professionals on board for their quick action under pressure, and wish the new mother and son all the best. Flight 1954 was operated on aircraft N523JB, coincidentally named, ‘Born To Be Blue,’” JetBlue shared in an announcement to NBC 6. JetBlue did not promptly react to Yahoo Lifestyle’s requests for comment.

An individual from JetBlue’s ground tasks, Yaqui Ramos, shared photographs of the group and the infant kid after the flight landed. Notwithstanding team individuals and medical professionals helping the lady give birth, the flight landed 11 minutes early, taking just two hours and 40 minutes.

While mid-air births are uncommon, many have occurred, a couple notwithstanding rousing names as well. In 2016, a Jetstar traveler, who was so respected with the consideration the group and individuals locally available gave her amid her midair delivery, named her child “Saw Jet Star.” And in 2012, an infant was named after her mom’s Emirates flight number, EK, subsequent to being delivered on the plane.


Rising Seas May Wipe Florida Off the Map

The world may have been warned. But the threats of climate change remain as 64,000 South Florida homes are expected to face constant and chronic flooding in the next 30 years due to rising sea levels, a new study revealed.

“In the coming decades, the consequences of rising seas will strain many coastal real estate markets—abruptly or gradually, but some eventually to the point of collapse—with potential reverberations throughout the national economy. And with the inevitability of ever-higher seas, these are not devaluations from which damaged real estate markets will recover,” the study read.

The study said that apart from homes, government infrastructure is also at risk. These include roads, bridges, power plants, airports, ports, public buildings, military bases, and other critical infrastructure along the coast.

National Geographic reported at the rate the burning of fossil fuels is going, “global warming will eventually melt all the ice at the poles and on mountaintops, raising sea level by 216 feet.” This would result to the vanishing of the entire Atlantinc seaboard, not just Florida but even the Gulf Coast.

“In California, San Francisco’s hills would become a cluster of islands and the Central Valley a giant bay. The Gulf of California would stretch north past the latitude of San Diego—not that there’d be a San Diego,” the report added.

In a report back in March 2018, alternative news website Truthout said the US “is poised to become the world’s top fossil fuel producer.”

By 2023, the US is expected to produce 17 million barrels of raw liquid hydrocarbons a day from 13 million in 2017. This is due to the US government’s policy to continue and intensify oil production, when, on the other hand, oil-producing countries have already agreed to slow down their production to combat its falling prices.

The increased oil production in the US has not only put the environment in peril but also threatens to displace rural communities as the government work on laying down new oil and gas pipelines. This has been met with strong international resistance, including the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline.

The study said, “there will be no simple solution. But continued inaction is unacceptable; we must use the remaining response time wisely to meet this serious threat and protect coastal communities as effectively as we can.”
