Read previewA former safety employee at OpenAI said the company is following in the footsteps of White Star Line, the company that built the Titanic. Was the path that OpenAI was on more like the Apollo program or more like the Titanic?" Apollo vs TitanicAs Saunders spent more time at OpenAI, he felt leaders were making decisions more akin to "building the Titanic, prioritizing getting out newer, shinier products." OpenAI did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent outside regular business hours by Business Insider. Meanwhile, OpenAI cofounder and former chief scientist Ilya Sutskever, who led the firm's superalignment division, resigned later that month.

New York CNN —The massive cargo ship crash that destroyed the Baltimore’s Francis Scott Key Bridge on Tuesday will probably cost various shipping companies and insurers billions of dollars in damages. “Maritime law is steeped in antiquity. Maritime law is rooted in the need to settle disputes and enforce rules between different peoples, even before there was the concept of countries with definitive laws. That rule, known as general average, is still a guiding principle of maritime law. “it’s just a fundamental part of the way that the shipping business works,” said Martin Davies, director of the Maritime Law Center at Tulane University.

The owner of the ship that crashed into the Baltimore bridge faces a mountain of potential lawsuits. Experts say the owner will likely try to invoke an 1851 law to try to cap potential damages. The Limitation of Liability Act was successfully used by the Titanic owner after the 1912 sinking. "If they're fully successful, it will cap how much they have to pay in damages," Michael Sturley, an expert in maritime law and professor at the University of Texas at Austin's School of Law, told BI. However, I must say that the way things look at present, it seems unlikely that a limitation petition will be successful."

There were oysters, salmon with Hollandaise sauce, beef, squab, duck, roast chicken, green peas, parsnip purée and Victoria pudding. The feast described is not a Thanksgiving meal, but a snapshot of what first-class passengers on the Titanic ate for dinner on April 11, 1912, when the ship left Queenstown, Ireland, for New York. A menu from that night, with an embossed red White Star Line flag at the top and signs of water damage, will go up for auction on Saturday at Henry Aldridge & Son Ltd in southwest England. It is expected to sell for up to 70,000 pounds, or about $86,000. The auction will include hundreds of other maritime items, including a White Star Line tartan blanket that was recovered from a Titanic lifeboat and a pocket watch owned by a second-class passenger, a Russian immigrant, who did not survive the sinking.

In particular, design differences between the Titanic and Olympic, visible in photographs of the two ships, are consistent with the wreckage of Titanic being, in fact, Titanic, and making the switch theory implausible. Another of the ships, Olympic, was put into service the year before, on June 14, 1911, and retired in 1935, with many of its fixtures and fittings auctioned off before it was scrapped. Magellan and its collaborator Atlantic Productions released sample images and animations of the Titanic wreck site scans to media outlets in May 2023, which can be viewed (here), (here). Olympic’s hull number was 400, and Titanic’s was 401. “Meanwhile,” Layton said, “the Titanic’s correct hull number, 401, has been observed at the wreck site and on items recovered from the wreck.

Such was the belief in the Titanic that safety regulations of the day were not updated to keep pace with the technology. The first version was adopted in 1914, in response to the Titanic disaster,” the International Maritime Organization (IMO) says on its website. Other SOLAS regulations linked back to the Titanic disaster include:Abandon ship drills – The Titanic captain had canceled one the day of the sinking. Lessons from TitanMaritime experts and historians have noted the Titan submersible operated outside of the regulations prompted by the Titanic disaster. The Titan submersible did not need to conform to safety regulations, since it operated in international waters.

JP Morgan was behind the whole thingA portrait of JP Morgan circa 1900. Photo by Museum of the City of New York/Getty ImagesThis rumor has everything you could want in a conspiracy theory. The Federal Reserve Bank. There's a theory out there that JP Morgan sank the Titanic in order to pave the way for the establishment of the Federal Reserve Bank in the US. Morgan was reportedly supposed to be on the ship, but decided to skip the maiden voyage at the last second.

Mr. Morgan, whose White Star Line owned the Titanic, figures prominently in Titanic lore. (In some tellings, TikTok creators have recast the villains as the wealthy Rothschild family or even the Catholic order of the Jesuits.) Evidence suggests that Mr. Morgan failed to make his date with the Titanic because he was dealing with an unexpected situation involving his European art collection. The consensus, though, is this: The Titanic sank in a terrible accident and many people died. “On a grand scale, the study of history keeps you from repeating the mistakes that were made in the past and, continually, moving forward,” said Mr. Stephenson, who is now the executive director of the USS Kidd Veterans Museum.

Titanic a fost cel mai mare pachebot din lume în momentul plecării sale în călătoria inaugurală, din Southampton, Anglia, cu destinaţia New York, pe 10 aprilie 1912. Căpitanul picase examenul de navigaţieEdward John Smith, căpitanul Titanicului, a fost „victima” a numeroase mituri, în ultimii 103 ani. Când nava a început să se scufunde, a decis să înfrunte moartea cu demnitate. În realitate, pasagera Elizabeth Shutes a fost atât de deranjată de mirosul gheţii, încât nu a putut dormi. Un alt „ingredient” pentru dezastru a fost fenomenul de refracţie a luminii.
