Heart health: A Nov. 16 article in Section A on lifestyle measures for reducing heart-disease risk said the American Heart Assn. recommends two or more 3.5-ounce servings of fish (preferably oily fish) a day. The recommended amount is per week, not per day.

E-Tracer electric vehicle: An article in the Nov. 13 Business section about the Peraves E-Tracer, a plug-in electric vehicle, gave the wrong unit of measure for the power rating of its AC induction motor. It is 150 kilowatts, not 150 kilowatt-hours. In addition, the article said the E-Tracer accelerates from 60 to 120 mph in less than three seconds, "similar to a Ferrari 458 Italia." The Ferrari's acceleration time in that range is about seven seconds.

Chinese jetliner: A Nov. 13 article in Section A about China's effort to build a jetliner to rival industry leaders Boeing and Airbus said one of the country's state-owned carriers, China Airlines, was expected to announce orders soon for the new aircraft, the C919. It is Air China, which is owned by the People's Republic of China, that is expected to announce the orders. China Airlines, which is based in Taiwan, is majority owned by the Taiwanese government.
