Boeing’s week of problems continues as more issues emerge Friday with the Dreamliner 787. Now, the FAA is ordering a review of the aircraft.

“The plane, otherwise known as the Dreamliner has suffered from a series of problems since its launch. There were two separate incidents with planes in Japan earlier on Friday.”

The list of issues with the Dreamliner this week include — an electrical fire, cracked windshield, brake-line problem and a fuel spill.

A teacher may have thwarted the plans of a 16-year-old shooting suspect at a California high school. The suspect fired on fellow students — hitting and injuring one. Then, KBAK reports the efforts of a teacher completely changed the course of the frightening situation.

“The teacher in the classroom, Ryan Heber, is being credited for the way he handled the situation. Heber and a campus supervisor were able to talk the student into putting down his weapon.”

MSNBC offers more insight into what motivated the suspect — and whom he might have been aiming for.

“Police say a 16-year-old gunman who felt he was being bullied specifically targeted two students using 12-gauge shotguns.”

The suspect is expected to be charged with attempted murder. The district attorney hasn’t decided whether he’ll be tried as an adult.

Aurora, Colorado theater shooting suspect James Holmes will be tried for murder. That news comes after this week’s preliminary hearing. The impending charges could carry the death penalty. CNN offers specifics on what those charges could look like.

“Holmes will be arraigned today on 166 counts connected to the massacre, including first-degree murder.”

The White House still isn’t ruling out that $1 trillion coin to end the debt-ceiling debate. It’s led to a lot of talk in the media — mostly questions about how something like this could be possible. A law professor gave a quick “Treasury 101” to Bill O’Reilly on Fox News.

“The government is not allowed to print money, new money, to pay its debts. But there’s a provision for platinum coins, specifically only for platinum coins.”

So, he’s sayin’ there’s a chance. But words like “fanciful” and “wacky” are being thrown around on CNBC — where the discussion turned toward asking — what’s realistic? And the answer — well — kind of devolved into something of a primer on how money is made.

“It points out an interesting relationship that’s often overlooked between the Treasury and the Fed. The way that coins are minted and bills are printed.”
