The Lion Air crash underscores the aviation industry’s lack of transparency, Prime Minister Theresa May reaches across the aisle and Vietnam’s diverse wildlife comes under threat. Here’s the latest:
After Lion Air Flight 610 plunged into the Java Sea last October, killing all 189 people onboard, urgent questions confronted the aviation industry.
After another crash five months later of the same plane model, Boeing’s 737 Max 8, it became clear that Lion Air, Boeing, subcontractors, investigators and regulators all put up barriers that made it difficult to share information about what went wrong. Airlines, passengers and even Indonesian regulators were left in the dark.
How we know: Our journalists interviewed government officials, aviation experts and company executives to uncover this climate of distrust and lack of communication.
Why it matters: “Lifesaving lessons are only life saving if we learn from them,” said a lawyer representing some families of Lion Air victims in a suit against Boeing.
A fix: Boeing’s software update for the troubled 737 Max that was expected this week has been delayed by several weeks.
In a surprise announcement, the British leader said she’d seek another extension for Brexit and work with the opposition Labour Party to come up with a joint plan.
The move is a significant gamble for Mrs. May, who has so far pushed only her own blueprint for the withdrawal, as it would involve shifting toward a softer Brexit. For live updates on the ground, follow our London correspondent Ellen Barry on Twitter.
It’s still unclear if Mrs. May’s compromise will work or if the E.U. would even grant her the extension.
View from Europe: Earlier in the day, the E.U.’s chief Brexit negotiator, Michel Barnier, warned Britain’s Parliament that there was no alternative to Mrs. May’s thrice-rejected plan and that the possibility of a chaotic “no-deal” exit was becoming “day after day more likely.”
Full disclosure: Protesters in the viewing gallery of Parliament on Monday stripped nearly naked to call for more climate change policies, a sight that lawmakers couldn’t ignore.
NASA said that debris created by India’s test last week, in which it shot down its own satellite with a rocket, could threaten the International Space Station. Six crew members are currently aboard.
The U.S. space agency identified 400 pieces of debris from the test, some of which pose a risk to the station because of the speed at which they travel. In 2011, the space station’s crew had to take refuge because of an unidentified piece of debris that whizzed past the station at 29,000 miles (46,670 kilometers) per hour.
Such debris usually disintegrates and falls back to Earth but it takes time: Much of the waste from China’s antisatellite test in 2007 is still in orbit.
Reminder: Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the successful test in a rare televised speech last week, lauding the achievement as a win for the country’s space agency. Some suspected he was trying to drum up support for his ruling Bharatiya Janata Party ahead of elections that begin on April 11.
The country’s governing party, led by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said it would challenge the results of recent municipal voting in which the party suffered a stunning defeat.
It lost Ankara, the capital and center of politics, and possibly Istanbul, the country’s largest city and a key support base.
The results were a barometer of Mr. Erdogan’s weakened standing among voters, amid a recession and his use of executive powers.
Impact: It was a huge surprise for a president who sought to ensure nobody could challenge him — purging the army, the police and the courts; strengthening his powers in the Constitution; and cowing the press. Our writer called it a momentous political earthquake.
The Philippines: The country’s highest court ordered the government to release documents related to thousands of deaths linked to President Rodrigo Duterte’s brutal crackdown on drugs, which some rights groups say has empowered the police to kill people suspected of selling drugs rather than arrest them.
Algeria: President Abdelaziz Bouteflika, who has been paralyzed in a wheelchair for years, resigned after weeks of mass protests against him and mounting pressure from the army. Mr. Bouteflika had been in power for 20 years.
Wynn Resorts: Former executives at the casino operator founded by Steve Wynn knew about and helped conceal sexual misconduct allegations against the billionaire, according to U.S. regulators.
Vietnam: The country is home to hundreds of previously undiscovered species of plants and animals, including a rare antelope-like saola, a striped rabbit and laughing thrushes. But it has also become a world center of criminal wildlife trafficking, and many of its forests are emptying.
Marine ecosystem: More than 48 pounds (21 kilograms) of plastic — including disposable dishes, shopping bags and a detergent packet with its bar code still visible — were found inside a dead pregnant sperm whale that washed ashore on the northern Italian island of Sardinia, the latest reminder of the marine toll of plastic waste.
Quebec: A proposed law in the Canadian province would bar public sector employees in positions of authority from wearing religious symbols, including the Muslim head scarf, the Jewish skullcap or the Sikh turban. The proposal has sparked widespread backlash.
Sweden: An off-duty, naked police officer who was at a sauna arrested a fugitive last week who was sitting next to him — also naked. The situation “was as stripped down as it gets,” said a deputy police chief in Stockholm.
The Arctic: The findings of the only test well ever drilled in Alaska’s Arctic refuge have been closely guarded for three decades. Was it dry or a gusher? Our reporters found answers in Cleveland, Ohio.
Mars: The planet periodically emits methane, a finding that has been perplexing scientists around the world because, on Earth, the gas is usually produced by living creatures.
Equal Pay Day: Women in the U.S. had to have worked until April 2 this year to earn what their male counterparts did in 2018, according to a pay equity group. The Times’s gender team breaks down some of the myths about unequal pay.

Tips for a more fulfilling life.
Recipe of the day: A midweek pasta dinner relies on no-fuss ingredients, including roasted broccoli, almonds and anchovies.
Apple and Google are adding new tools to help you track and control the time you spend on your device.
Experts say adults and children alike can benefit from avoiding the hormone disrupters in many highly processed goods; plastics marked 3, 6 or 7; and chemical-based cleaning products.
Political scandals engulfed the Virginia Statehouse months ago.
And The Virginian-Pilot has been among the regional papers covering the scandals and their aftermath closely. It was the first to confirm a report that Gov. Ralph Northam’s medical school yearbook page included a photo of a man in black face with another in a Ku Klux Klan robe.
The Pilot is the result of local newspaper mergers that began just after the Civil War. It first published under its current name in 1898, and was acquired by Tronc, the former Tribune Co., in 2018. Based in southeastern Virginia, its coverage bleeds into North Carolina, with a limited paywall.
The Pilot earned a Pulitzer Prize in 1929 for one of a series of editorials on the evils of lynching and on legislation to prevent it; another in 1960 for editorials on Virginian officials’ stonewalling of integration and a third in 1985, for reporting on local corruption.
Last year, The Pilot was a finalist for the Pulitzer in investigative reporting, for documenting injustices in Virginia’s parole system. Who knows what 2019 might bring?
