Jyotirmoy Mahato is BJP candidate from Purulia

first_imgKolkata: The BJP has finally fielded its district president Jyotirmoy Mahato as a candidate to contest in the forthcoming Lok Sabha elections from Purulia.The announcement was a delayed one. The party had already announced its candidates in 40 seats in various phases with the two constituencies — Purulia and Burdwan-Durgapur remaining undecided. The BJP declared the names of its 42 candidates in five phases. There was considerable resentment brewing amongst the BJP workers in Purulia as the Central leadership took a long time to announce the candidature. Also Read – Bengal family worships Muslim girl as Goddess Durga in Kumari PujaIt was learnt from sources that there was a tussle between the leaders to select the candidate in Purulia. The opinions were divided among the state leaders on who would be the befitting candidate there. Some leaders of the saffron party were said to have backed another candidate whom they thought to a better one for the job. The Central leaders, however, finally came up with the name of Mahato who has been a known face in the district. He has been working for the party in the district for quite sometime. The district BJP leaders believe that the selection of candidate will reap political dividends for them during the forthcoming Lok Sabha polls.last_img read more

The Latest: Lawyer: Dividing Prince estate may be difficult by The Associated Press Posted Apr 26, 2016 10:48 am MDT Last Updated Apr 26, 2016 at 3:16 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MINNEAPOLIS – The Latest on Prince’s death and his estate (all times local):1:40 p.m.A top Minnesota probate lawyer says resolving Prince’s estate may get extremely complicated if his siblings and half-siblings can’t agree how to do it.Prince’s sister, Tyka Nelson, filed court documents Tuesday saying she knew of no will and asked the court to appoint a corporate trust company to oversee his estate.Susan Link is head of the estate planning group at the Maslon law firm.

Universal coverage race at starting line with new momentum UN health agency

Key Strategies: Align, Accelerate, AccountThe partner organizations, which include UN Women, UN AIDS, and the World Bank Group, have agreed to develop common approaches and coordinated action by way of three key strategies: align, accelerate, account. With nearly 50 health-related targets across 14 SDG’s, the organizations have set forth these milestones as a reference to determine where the world stands in relation to human health come 2023, which will serve as a midterm review, on the road to 2030.Phase one of the plan kicked off in October of last year, in Berlin, following requests by German Chancellor, Angela Merkel, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of Ghana, and Prime Minister Erna Solberg of Norway, for concrete steps toward universal health, supported by the UN Secretary-General António Guterres.With the plan’s launch marking the second step, with full implementation yet to come, Mr. Ghebreysus stressed that today “is not the finish line, it’s the starting line to deepen our engagement with countries and with each other.” “We all have unique mandates and unique strengths,” he said, addressing partner organizations, “this is a historic initiative to leverage our strengths.” Align and coordinate work better to reduce inefficienciesAccelerate efforts that can significantly speed up progress in global healthAccountability: Create a common framework for assessing results and critical checkpoints In the wake of Monday’s universal health commitments, WHO chief Tedros Adhammom Ghebryesus said the document would serve as “a new milestone in our journey towards a healthier, safer and fairer world”, dovetailing with the launch of the agency’s own pledge to boost healthier living.  “World leaders have unified around a shared vision of the world we want”, he said. “Today, the international health community is doing the same”, introducing the WHO Global Action Plan for health.  Speaking to health champions at the UN’s Trusteeship Council Chamber in New York, Mr. Ghebryesus said the “historic commitment”, will serve as a platform to help countries get back on track when it comes to health-related Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the subject of conversation for the next two days during the UN’s high level summit on the blueprint.  The commitment, coordinated by WHO, unites the work of 12 health organizations and serves as a framework for how the world can speed up action towards achieving Universal Health Coverage.  “Our shared vision is to deliver a measurable impact in the lives of the people we serve, and our shared commitment is to align, accelerate, account and engage…” he said, highlighting the plan’s pillars for implementation. read more

Brooke Henderson repeats as Canadian Press female athlete of the year

There was a quiet poise to Brooke Henderson on that Sunday morning last summer in Regina ahead of her final round at the CP Women’s Open.She had experienced big moments before: her first LPGA Tour win as a 17-year-old in 2015, her first major victory a year later, her first appearance at the Olympics.This tournament was different.No Canadian had won the national open since Jocelyne Bourassa in 1973. Supporters who crammed the galleries could sense something special was happening.Henderson would deliver in emphatic fashion, firing a closing-round 65 for a four-shot victory.“The 18th hole, standing on that green, surrounded by family and friends and hundreds of fans and spectators cheering me on = it was sort of a surreal moment,” Henderson said. “To finally hold that trophy that I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl, it gives me chills just thinking back on it.”It was one of two tournament titles and 11 top-10 finishes for Henderson last season. On Wednesday, she was rewarded for her stellar campaign by being named a repeat winner of the Bobbie Rosenfeld Award as The Canadian Press female athlete of the year.Henderson, who has won the award in three of the last four years, picked up 30 of 54 votes (55.6 per cent) in a poll of broadcasters and editors from across the country.“Especially this year being an Olympic year with all the great athletes that competed in the Winter Olympics, it’s a big honour and I’m just really proud to take home this award again,” Henderson said.Figure skater Kaetlyn Osmond and short-track speedskater Kim Boutin tied for second place with 10 votes each (18.5 per cent).The winner of the Lionel Conacher Award as Canada’s male athlete of the year will be named Thursday and the team of the year will be named Friday.With wet weather in the forecast, Henderson had an early start for her final round at the CP Women’s Open. Showing no sign of nerves or timidity, she lashed her opening drive down the fairway and birdied the hole for a two-stroke lead.Angel Yin, Sung Hyun Park, Su Oh and others tried to make charges that day but Henderson wouldn’t buckle. In fact, the Canadian found another gear.Henderson pulled away with four straight birdies on the back nine and tapped in a birdie putt on the 18th hole to send the crowd into a tizzy. Her seventh career LPGA Tour victory moved her one behind Sandra Post’s record for all-time wins by a Canadian.“The blinders were on,” Post said. “She was looking at the finish line and she just looked like it was hers. She wasn’t nervous. It was hers.”It was an emotional summer for Henderson and her family. Her maternal grandfather died in early June and her paternal grandfather died in early August.Henderson, from Smiths Falls, Ont., remained steady and consistent throughout the year. She won the Lotte Championship last April in Hawaii, earned US$1.47 million over the season and finished ninth in the world rankings.“Big performances on the biggest stage amongst stiff competition in one of the highest-profile sports in the world,” said Edmonton-based Postmedia editor Craig Ellingson.Henderson was fourth in scoring average (69.99) on the LPGA Tour, eighth in driving distance (268-yard average) and fourth in greens in regulation (74.5 per cent).Her short game statistics were middle of the pack. Henderson was 72nd in putting average (29.7 putts per round) and 87th in sand saves (43.7 per cent).“It’s easy to get down on yourself when things aren’t going perfectly,” Henderson said. “I feel like I stayed really patient through the majority of the year. When things were not very good, they always turned around. You just have to wait them out and I did that.“Even going into the CP Women’s Open, I was in contention a few times and wasn’t able to get the job done. But I feel like I learned from those experiences and then when I put myself in position in Regina, I wasn’t going to let it go that time. I was able to seal the deal.”Bobbie Rosenfeld, an Olympic medallist in track and field and a multi-sport athlete, was named Canada’s best female athlete of the half-century in 1950.The first winner of the Rosenfeld award was golfer Ada Mackenzie in 1933. Marlene Stewart Streit leads all golfers by taking the honour on five occasions (1952, ’53, ’56, ’57, ’63). read more

Tiger Woods Takes the Lead at British Open

Tiger Woods, moves to the top of the British Open championship, but it’s still a long way from over. On Friday, the world No.1, made two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine and sank a 10-foot putt on the final green to finish on two under par along with Lee Westwood of England and Swede Henrik Stenson.On Saturday, Woods was able to focus his concentration, to par the next six holes and set up a birdie on the last, which he celebrated with a trademark fist pump.“Towards the middle part of my round I lost the pace and was blowing it past the hole,” Woods told reporters. “But finally got it fixed at the end.”Play can and will change quickly, so stay informed with the live coverage in the video above. read more

Opinion Under 16s should be able to access gender recognition with parental

first_img 18,023 Views Eilis Barry Jun 14th 2018, 7:00 AM https://jrnl.ie/4059316 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Short URL Share154 Tweet Email Floundering forests: The challenges facing the Irish forestry industry>I’m 27. I’m living at home. Going through the same hall door since I was in a school uniform’>center_img Opinion: ‘Under 16s should be able to access gender recognition with parental consent’ FLAC has also recommended that there should be recognition for intersex and non-binary gender identities, writes Eilis Barry. By Eilis Barry LYDIA FOY WAS born in 1947 and was registered at birth as male. From her early years she felt uncomfortable and ill at ease as a boy. As she grew up she tried to conform to a male role and eventually married and had two children. But she always knew she was female.Lydia Foy grew increasingly unhappy and wanted to live in what to her was her true female gender. In 1992, she had gender reassignment surgery in the UK.It was a hard and painful journey for her. She was a reluctant campaigner. By the time Lydia Foy approached FLAC in 1996 she had already had her request for a birth certificate reflecting her true gender refused by the Registrar General and a complaint to the European Commission of Human Rights in Strasbourg rejected.Legal battleFLAC has a long history of engaging in strategic litigation to challenge unjust laws, to increase public awareness of pressing legal needs and bringing about effective changes in the law to help marginalised and disadvantaged groups and individuals. We decided to take on Lydia’s case and represented her over a period of 20 years. We were proud to do so.Our new report highlights the very particular difficulties faced by a trans person as a litigant in the court system when seeking to assert rights in relation to core issues of identity.Lydia Foy describes how intimidating she found the whole process and how disempowering it made her feel. She had to go through one particular unsuccessful High Court hearing that lasted over 14 days followed by an appeal to the Supreme Court.The case was then sent back to the High Court with another hearing lasting over 7 days. Mr Justice McKechnie held that Article 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights imposed a positive obligation on the State to provide for the recognition of Lydia Foy’s preferred gender and that it had failed to do so.Lydia Foy had to issue a third set of High Court proceedings when the State failed to enact proper legislation before the case was finally settled.Gender Recognition ActLydia Foy faced many sets backs and it is a testament to her resolve and resilience that she persisted for over 20 years in pursuing her rights.FLAC were also involved in briefing politicians, policy makers and the Council of Europe’s Commissioner for Human Rights. There was active support from the Equality Authority and the Irish Human Rights Commission. The Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) when it was set up in 2005 provided great support.Eventually in 2015, the Oireachtas passed the Gender Recognition Act. The Act provides a process enabling trans people who are over 18 to achieve full legal recognition of their self-identified gender and allows for the acquisition of a new birth certificate that reflects this change. Recognising gender in IrelandFLAC also recently made a submission to the Department of Social Protection’s review of the Gender Recognition Act 2015 with a view to making improvements for transgender young people who wish to access legal gender recognition.It is FLAC’s view that those aged 16 and 17 should be able to access the same gender recognition process as those over 18, and those under 16 should be able to access recognition through a simplified court process with the consent of their parent or guardian with the Court being required to hold the best interests of the child as paramount. FLAC has also recommended that there should be recognition for intersex and non-binary gender identities.Lydia’s long legal struggle to have her identity recognised is a testament to the strength of the human spirit. Because of her determination and willingness to continue in the face of the opposition of the State, trans adults in Ireland can now have their correct gender recognised in Irish law.In September 2015, Lydia received her Gender Recognition Certificate. It was the first of its kind issued in Ireland. Indeed, by the end of 2017, 295 Gender Recognition Certificates had been granted.Tellingly, when she received her certificate Lydia remarked “my country has finally recognised me for who I really am.”Eilis Barry is CEO of FLAC. The report is online at https://www.flac.ie/publications/lydia-foy-and-the-struggle-for-transgender-rights/. 112 Comments CEO, FLAC Thursday 14 Jun 2018, 7:00 AMlast_img read more

Harry Winks praises Moussa Sissoko

first_imgThe English footballer wanted to represent his country in the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia but an ankle injury prevented this.In 2017, Harry Winks was part of the England national team, he was ready to represent his nation at the FIFA World Cup in Russia.But ankle problems took him away from his dream and he had to watch on television how five of his Tottenham Hotspur footballers contributed to England’s best run in almost 20 years.And now, the player only wants to become a great player.“I really enjoy playing in the team with Moussa [Sissoko],” he said to the club’s official website trying to explain how he feels.“We complement each other well. We’ve had a partnership for the last couple of months now and it’s been going really well.”“We’re getting results and that’s the most important thing but we both help the team out as much as we possibly can in our own individual ways and I’m just thankful that in the games we’re getting the results we need,” he explained.“No, nothing specifically together. I guess on the pitch it just comes together well and we perform well. We just like playing alongside each other!”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“[Sissoko] He’s been phenomenal,” he explained.“He’s been one of the most key players for us this season because his all-around game is massive. He’s solid off the ball, solid on the ball and he’s an important figure for us.”“He’s had difficult spells over the last couple of seasons with game time, playing in various positions and getting a run of games. We train with him every day, so we know how good he is and we’re all so happy to see him doing so well and being able to show the fans how important he is for us,” he explained.“He’s had disappointments he’s had to deal with, difficult spells to get through and that what takes you to the next level, it toughens you up. If you go through difficult spells you remember them and it’s the character building every player needs to go to the next level.”💪#OneOfOurOwn pic.twitter.com/pFuWmZwNsc— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) February 20, 2019last_img read more

Dozens of Bangladesh migrants trafficked to Vanuatu stuck in limbo

first_imgDozens of Bangladeshis who say they were trafficked to Vanuatu with the promise of jobs are stuck in limbo and struggling to survive while awaiting justice and the option of returning home.About 101 migrants who arrived in the Pacific island nation over the course of the last two years say they were promised decent work, but ended up being exploited by their supposed bosses – who were arrested in November on trafficking charges.Four Bangladeshis charged with trafficking are due in court in Vanuatu next month, said the Vanuatu Human Rights Coalition, a charity that is supporting the alleged victims along with the United Nations International Organization for Migration (IOM).Bangladesh officials say they have asked Vanuatu and the IOM – which is facilitating dialogue between the two governments – to provide details about their citizens in order to start the repatriation process, but have received no information to date.Vanuatu’s interior minister, Andrew Soloman Napuat, told the Thomson Reuters Foundation that the government would wait for a court decision before taking any steps to repatriate the group.In the meantime, the migrants, all men and two children, are surviving on rations and handouts – and fearful for the future.”If we stay here, there’s nothing; if we go home, we don’t know what’s going to happen,” said Harun Or Rashid, who was promised a job in Australia, adding that the men were worried about how they will repay loans to relatives and banks at home.Lured by the promise of jobs as salesmen in Vanuatu and nearby Australia, the Bangladeshis said they had sold property and taken out loans worth up to $20,000 to pay for the move.Once the migrants landed in Vanuatu, they were forced to work at a construction site building a market, subjected to beatings, and denied the money they were promised, Rashid said.”Some in the group believe that it’s better to commit suicide here, because there seems to be no way out,” he added by phone from a house in the capital, Port Vila, where 30 of the migrants were staying and receiving support from the government.The migrants said they are stuck in limbo as they are witnesses in the case against their traffickers but lack the right to work. Several said they would like the chance to earn money in Vanuatu instead of being returned home in the future.DUPEDOne of the largest exporters of manpower in the world, Bangladesh depends heavily on remittances from abroad. According to official data, at least 1 million Bangladeshis secured jobs abroad in 2017 – the highest number ever recorded.But this depends largely upon unlicensed brokers working in rural areas and opens the door to trafficking, campaigners say.The 101 migrants say they were duped by a network of brokers in the central Bangladeshi cities of Tangail and Barisal, who transported them to Vanuatu via India, Singapore and Fiji.A broker in Bangladesh was arrested last year after Harun’s family filed a complaint in Tangail, police records show.One migrant who declined to give his name said he owned a garment factory back home and went to Vanuatu as he was told he would be able to export clothes to a market run by Bangladeshis.When he arrived, the man realised he had been conned.”It was just a show. The market was just a bunch of tents … constructed by the Bangladeshis who were trafficked here. I have lost everything because of the traffickers,” he said, adding that his factory had closed down in his absence.Anne Pakoa, head of the Vanuatu Human Rights Coalition, said the migrants barely had enough to eat and that pre-existing medical conditions including diabetes were going untreated.”There is free medical treatment but it’s very basic, some of the medications required are not available in Vanuatu,” Pakoa said by phone. “Depression is mounting among the group.”Bangladesh’s High Commission in Australia – it has no representative in Vanuatu – said it was first informed of the situation by the IOM in November but has received no details.”If IOM can provide details that they must have, Bangladesh can ascertain their citizenship and start the process of repatriation,” a spokesman told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.The IOM is providing humanitarian support to the 101 migrants at the request of Vanuatu’s government, according to spokesman Chris Lom, who said the situation was “complex”.But for Rashid and the other Bangladeshis living in limbo in Vanuatu, money rather than food is their most pressing concern.”How will we pay our loans back?,” Rashid said. What will our families think?”last_img read more

Fenton, M.D., at the University of California, Davis, and colleagues analyzed data from more than 1.6 million film screening mammograms carried out at facilities in seven states from 1998 to 2006. The facilities participate in the Breast Cancer Surveillance Consortium, a federally supported network in which data quality is rigorously monitored.Of 90 total facilities, 25 adopted CAD and used it for an average of 27.5 months during the study period. The researchers collected information on women who had mammograms with and without CAD, including whether they were diagnosed with breast cancer within a year of the screening.According to the study, CAD was associated with more false positives — identifications of tumors that turned out to be false. It did not improve detection of invasive cancers. Moreover, the cancers detected using CAD were no more likely to be smaller or at a lower stage or to have less lymph node involvement than those detected without CAD. The results were the same after adjusting for patient age, breast density, use of hormone replacement therapy, and other factors that might influence mammography findings.The authors point out that CAD costs Medicare more than $30 million a year. “As currently implemented in U.S. practice,” they write, “CAD appears to increase a woman’s risk of being recalled for further testing after screening mammography while yielding equivocal health benefit.”In an accompanying editorial, Donald Berry, Ph.D., of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, argues that any benefit to CAD is likely to be so small that it would be difficult to detect even in a very large randomized study. Moreover, improving the sensitivity of CAD might find less aggressive tumors or those that would otherwise show up between mammograms. Early detection of such tumors, he writes, is not likely to have much of an impact on breast cancer mortality.The editorialist concludes that researchers should work to make CAD software more useful, but that “this should happen in an experimental setting and not while exposing millions of women to a technology that may be more harmful than it is beneficial.”For more information: jnci.oxfordjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

2019 Trend Report Transformational travel and are those real followers or just

first_img Tuesday, January 15, 2019 Kathryn Folliott 2019 Trend Report: Transformational travel, and are those real followers, or just bots? This story originally ran in the January 10th, 2019 issue of Travelweek magazine. To get Travelweek delivered to your agency for free, subscribe here.TORONTO — The Canadian travel industry is fuelled year after year by huge volumes of ITC package sales to sun and sand destinations. So does that mean we’re immune to 2019’s travel trends? Not at all.Sun sells and so do all-inclusives. For the Canadian travel industry, these aren’t so much trends as iron-clad guarantees.But after years of fly n’ flop vacations, Mr. and Mrs. All-In might opt for a Mediterranean culinary vacation instead. They saw pics on Instagram and now they want to try it for themselves.A couple with two children and an annual booking for Florida can now afford that safari trip in Kenya since the kids left the nest.And an older luxury client who always gravitated to five-star hotels in Anguilla and St. Bart’s now finds herself travelling solo, and looking for a trip that offers something more, something inspirational.Beyond the beach, beyond the swim-up bars, there are major travel trends shaping the Canadian travel industry for 2019.Solo travel and women-only travel continue to be big, as is bleisure travel, as Millennials especially look to optimize their business trips with vacation days pre or post.And the very biggest factors shaping travel in 2019 are the desire for transformational travel, the overwhelming influence of social media and access as the new luxury.TRANSFORMATIONAL TRAVELThe quest for life-changing travel continues unabated and for 2019 the industry has taken the years-long trend for experiential travel to the next level with transformational travel.“Travel with experiences at its core was one of 2018’s major travel trends, but 2019 will take it even further,” say the researchers at Booking.com. “‘Doing’ will weigh equally with ‘going’, if not more, when it comes to travel reflection. For more than half of travellers (52%), experiences are now valued higher than material possessions.”Representing a new type of currency and means of personal fulfillment, 2019 will see travellers focus even more on adding purpose to their trips.Ulla Hefel Böhler, CEO of Insight Vacations, says Insight has drilled down on emphasizing transformational travel, enhancing many of its experiences on its journeys. “Whether this means connecting clients with local characters who really bring a destination to life or taking them to areas where they can see what sustainable development looks like, we proudly provide the value these experiences deserve,” says Hefel Böhler.At the UNWTO’s 7th Global Summit on Urban Tourism in October of this year, “memorable experiences” were brought up and positioned as a major shift in motivation for travellers, she adds.For CLIA, experiential travel has also evolved into ‘achievement travel’ as vacationers are looking for immersive, cultural experiences beyond sightseeing. Bucket lists have become more goal-oriented and cruise lines are meeting these demands, says CLIA, noting that cruise passengers can conquer Machu Picchu or complete culinary workshops hosted by Le Cordon Bleu chefs while sailing the high seas.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”All of this makes travel in 2019 sound very earnest and grown up, and while that may be the goal for many, it’s not what some vacationers have in mind for their getaway.According to Booking.com’s research, 31% of travellers say they plan to visit a destination that makes them feel like a kid again. “We’ll see properties looking to add more childlike and playful touches such as ball pits and bouncy castles for adults to cater for a Millennial and Gen Z audience, who are the biggest groups who travel to feel like a child again.”350 MILLION+ POSTS FOR #TRAVEL – EVERY DAYInstagram posts are driving interest in travel around the world, so much so that on an average day, there can be close to 351 million posts with the tag #travel, says CLIA.“The impact that social media, especially Instagram, has on consumers and their decision-making process when looking to book travel and deciding on what destinations to visit is immense,” notes Insight’s Hefel Böhler.Social media cachet has become such a motivator for travel, it’s the number one trend cited in Virtuoso’s annual Luxe Report.Tim Morgan, Virtuoso’s Director, Business Strategy, Canada, says social media’s influence is unmistakable, as it drives travellers’ desire to find the most captivating backdrops and the best time of day for snapping images. It’s even impacting booking requests for Virtuoso advisers. “Clients are requesting on-site photography sessions to create Instagram-worthy content, including replicating shots they admired online. Virtuoso advisors are arranging themed photoshoots characteristic of destinations, such as wearing traditional geisha attire in Kyoto or ball gowns in Venice.”Anything that drives exploration and inspires travel bookings is a good thing, but it’s tough to truly connect with a destination when all you’re doing is uploading selfies and compulsively checking your social media feeds. No wonder there’s also an upswing in ‘unplugged’ travel, and news of tourism boards like Vienna, who cheekily pushed back on the selfie obsession with an anti-Instagram marketing campaign last fall.Peter J. Bates, President of Strategic Vision, says any company using influencers to promote their products and services needs to do their due diligence.Influencers now command high fees and their travel costs covered to share content with their followers, who may number in the millions, says Bates. “The drawback? There’s little visibility into what and who the influencer brings to the table. Unlike traditional publishers, influencers rarely provide useful data on their audience other than its size. Are they real travel consumers who are likely to book your product? Are they even real people or just bots? We need more transparency from influencers and less credulity from the people hiring them.”More news:  Consolidation in the cruise industry as PONANT set to acquire Paul Gauguin CruisesACCESS = LUXURYAccess is the new luxury, says CLIA. Travellers are setting their sights on destinations that were previously out of reach, some only accessible now by cruise ship: “They want to be among the first of their peers to experience destinations such as the Galapagos Islands and Antarctica.”People also want to explore their passions through hard-to-get bucket-list experiences, building on a years-long trend that shows no sign of slowing down, says Virtuoso’s Morgan. “Sports fans are asking for tickets to major events such as the Olympics, Super Bowl and Wimbledon. Art aficionados are inquiring about private tours of locales like the Vatican after hours,” says Morgan, who adds that requests are also on the rise from the company’s high-end clientele for private helicopter transfers to and from airports as well as from one city or resort island to another.That’s the upper end of the market. What about everyone else?No matter what the budget, off-peak season travel is rising in popularity too. Ignoring the fact that they too are part of the crowd, travellers are bemoaning the proliferation of – gasp! – other travellers in their destination, much to the bemusement of the travel industry.That beach that looked so secluded and private in the brochure may not be so private after all, and in their desire to create a more unique and customized travel experience, many world wanderers are going to great lengths to guarantee themselves a more crowd-free holiday, including opting in for off-peak getaways.Tourism boards have been promoting off-peak travel for years, and as concerns (and frustrations) about overtourism climb, travellers are increasingly willing to book around the high season crowds.DREAM DESTINATIONSAnd finally, what are the hottest destinations for 2019? Japan, Patagonia and Jordan are on G Adventures’ list. Lonely Planet names Sri Lanka, Germany, Zimbabwe, Copenhagen and Serbia’s youth and culture capital, Novi Sad. Top global destinations in the Canadian edition of the 2019 Virtuoso Luxe Report include Italy, South Africa and Australia. Meanwhile Slovenia and Colombia make the top 10 list of emerging destinations.

Two of Australias funniest check in to Travelodge Hotels

first_imgTFE Hotels has recruited some of the funniest names in Australian comedy to promote the new “Refreshingly Simple” philosophy of Travelodge Hotels across Australia and New Zealand.Perth export Joel Creasey and Newcastle’s Rhys Nicholson will release a hilarious new set of videos next week to bring to life the Travelodge Hotels brand, which has recently undergone the biggest refresh in its 40-year history.With a down to earth attitude and an honest sense of humour, Travelodge Hotels are designed to suit the way we live today.Each of the 17 hotels in Australia and New Zealand are now based on a Refreshingly Simple approach, giving travellers more of what they want and less of the things that seem, well, rather pointless.TFE Hotels CEO Rachel Argaman said the videos were designed to share the refreshed Travelodge Hotels brand with a broader demographic, engaging with younger audiences via Social Media using well known personalities for the campaign.“Comedians like Joel are a logical fit for Travelodge Hotels. He has a great appeal and his star has risen so far in recent years, while Rhys offers something different with his quirky local knowledge of his hometown,” Ms Argaman said.“We’ve created a set of rollicking videos that will be launched online, using Travelodge as their base.”Australia’s ‘Acid Tongue Prince’ Joel Creasey will check in to host a short-video series, in which he will share his travel stories, hints and advice.As one of Australia’s hottest comedians, Joel made a name for himself performing sold-out runs at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and with shows at the New York International Fringe Festival.He has been inside his fair share of hotels across the world in recent years and has a huge repertoire of stories to tell, ranging from the good to the bad, to the downright awkward…“Everyone has experienced that intense moment of panic when you’ve just jumped out of the shower and you hear a knock at the door and, ‘HOUSEKEEPING’,” Joel said.“We’re going to take a little journey into the world of travel the funnier moments of hotel stays so hopefully, we’ll have a few laughs along the way. Stay tuned!”Joining Joel on the Travelodge guest list is Newcastle’s razor-sharp-witted, Rhys Nicholson who burst onto the scene when he won the 2012 Time Out Award for Best Newcomer at the Sydney Comedy Festival.Though he now lives in Sydney, his hometown will always be extremely close to his heart. Rhys will be filming a travel guide with a twist for visitors to the harbourside city, giving insider hints and tips for making the most of a few days in this often-overlooked part of New South Wales.“I might have been away from Newcastle for a few years now, but I definitely have fond memories of growing up there. Or maybe I just have memories…” Rhys said.“There’s definitely a different side to the city that you can discover if you know where to look, which luckily I do, so I’m looking forward to showing off my roots with my very own travel guide!” Learn more hereSource = TFE Hotelslast_img read more

The announcement was made by Mr. Santi Laoboonsa-ngiem, Vice Governor, Khon Kaen Province, Thailand; Mrs. Supawan Teerarat, Senior Vice President – Strategic Business Development & Innovation of TCEB; Mrs. Srisuda Wanapinyosak, Deputy Governor for International Marketing (Europe, Africa, Middle East and Americas), TAT, and Dr. Mario Hardy, CEO, PATA.Mr. Laoboonsa-ngiem said, “Khon Kaen, located in the heart of Thailand’s Northeast region, has become a gateway to the Greater Mekong Subregion, which consists of Cambodia, China (Yunnan and Quangxi Provinces), Laos, Myanmar, Vietnam and Thailand. Khon Kaen is also widely known for its rich traditional Isan culture and history, where visitors can experience the lifestyle of Isan people, enjoy popular Isan cuisine, explore pre-historical artifacts and antiques, and learn about the famous Mad Mee silk production of Khon Kaen.”Mrs. Supawan Teerarat stated, “TCEB is proud and delighted to promote and co-organize the PATA Destination Marketing Forum 2018 event here in the province of Khon Kaen in Thailand. The event, which will serve as a driving force for international MICE events in Thailand, contributes to implementing the government’s policy of stimulating and developing the regional economy. Khon Kaen is one of Thailand’s leading MICE cities, with strong potential and readiness to host international conventions to world-class standards. The city has already built a strong track record in hosting numerous high-profile MICE events.”“This event offers an important platform for all MICE stakeholders, including private sector companies, MICE operators and tourism businesses across the Asia-Pacific region. In particular the event will maximize benefits to Thai participants both from Khon Kaen itself, and from secondary MICE cities around the country. In order to further stimulate Thai participation, TCEB has negotiated waivers of registration fees for Thai operators and relevant government agencies for the event. The event will contribute greatly to raising visibility and awareness of Khon Kaen and other regional MICE cities as international MICE destinations. At TCEB we are committed to supporting responsible, low-impact, sustainable growth in the MICE business, to harness MICE events to benefit local communities, and to drive inclusive economic growth across the country,” she added.Dr. Hardy said, “Aligning with PATA’s advocacy theme of tourism dispersal, this year’s forum under the theme “Growth with Goals” shines the spotlight on Khon Kaen in Northeastern Thailand. The Association has been a strong advocate on the issue of tourism dispersal to secondary and tertiary destination, as it allows people to see the true authentic beauty of the country and its people and at the same provide an economic boost to local communities who greatly benefit from tourism.”Mrs. Wanapinyosak said, “Engaging with local community is an important part of unique experiences Thailand has to offer visitors. Our marketing direction embraces a new concept “Open to the New Shades of Thailand” where visitors are inspired to discover Thailand and its diversity in a new light. Thai Gastronomy, Art and Craft, Nature and Way of Life are what embody Thainess and the uniqueness of experience that visitors are after.”In advocating sustainable tourism and emerging destinations, PATA is pleased to offer complimentary registration to all interested parties who wish to attend.For more information about the event, please visit www.pata.org/pdmf or email events@PATA.orgSource = Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA)last_img read more

Region Economic Development Corp. said the city can give up to $100000 in growth fund loans per year with the Bank of North Dakota matching each loan one to two Applicants can apply for loans as high as $30000 $20000 of which the city covers with the first year deferred"It’s inclusive of all types of companies" Baumbach said of the program adding he’s talked to everyone from retailers to inventors "But we do require a little bit of homework"The processBefore submitting anything applicants must consult with the North Dakota Small Business Development Center which Baumbach said is free for anyone exploring a business Then applicants must file with the state of North Dakota and send Baumbach a business planWith Baumbach’s guidance applicants move onto a local committee of eight entrepreneurs who review an idea"Kind of like ‘Shark Tank’ " he saidAfter doing all that Scott received final approval from the Job Development Authority MondayThe process takes about five to seven weeks to reach approval Baumbach estimated depending on how fast he can schedule a shark tank meeting before the JDA convenesScott’s $20000 start-up application was the second the city approved this year"The beautiful thing about this program is even though we’ve only gotten two applications I’ve had the opportunity to meet with a dozen people who have come out of the woodwork out of their basements out of their garages tinkering and they say ‘Hey you know what I’ve been thinking about this business for a while What do you think’" Baumbach said The first application the city approved last August was a $10000 loan for Auto-Pilot Medical Technologies which returned the loan after relocating to Fargo"We’re trying to start businesses here in Grand Forks" Baumbach said "Things that could really scale and sell outside of the region and really have the opportunity to create jobs in Grand Forks"Scott’s clinic differs from some businesses Baumbach said in that it offers a "much-needed"service"The need is high and we don’t have enough clinicians that do the work to satisfy the need" Scott said"Is he going to hire a lot of people Maybe not likely" Baumbach said "Is he going to be able to sell that service outside the region Even less likely So there’s a diversity in that way"For this year Baumbach said there’s still about $84000 remaining for loansBefore Reagan men with failed marriages were considered too tainted for the White House Nelson Rockefeller’s divorce may have cost him the Republican primary nomination for president in 1964But by the time Reagan took the oath in 1981 with Nancy Reagan by his side in her royal blue suit and hat the country was ready for the first lady to be a second wifeAnd Wyman didn’t get in the way though she surely knew plenty from her nine years of marriage to Reagan during Hollywood’s heydayTheir time together – which included the birth of one child the adoption of another and the death of a third – received little attention Reagan never mentioned her in public And Wyman got no more than a paragraph in his autobiography:"The same year I made the Knute Rockne movie I married Jane Wyman another contract player at Warners Our marriage produced two wonderful children Maureen and Michael but it didn’t work out and in 1948 we divorced"That’s itAnd she honored him with similar silenceAsked in 1968 right after Reagan became California’s 33rd governor why she never spoke of her ex-husband’s political transformation and new starring role Wyman was wry and succinct"It’s not because I’m bitter or because I don’t agree with him politically" she said in 1968 "I’ve always been a registered Republican But it’s bad taste to talk about ex-husbands and ex-wives that’s all Also I don’t know a damned thing about politics"Bad taste Remember when there was such a thingBut today rather than a former film actor we have an ex-reality-TV star in the White House And his leading ladies are going at it reality-show styleIvana Trump wrote a book and did some interviews this week throwing shade at Mrs Trumps #2 and #3 "I’m basically the first Trump wife Okay" Ivana said "I’m first lady"So Melania Trump wife #3 responded with some acid of her own Her spokeswoman issued a statement calling her "honored by her role as first lady of the United States She plans to use her title and role to help children not sell books"The palace infighting is so lurid it got the king of the wife wars exercised"This is actually happening All the wives are fighting Even I AM SPEECHLESS" tweeted Andy Cohen executive producer of Bravo’s "Real Housewives" series It’s a good time to remember that as recently as the 1980s when the first Trump union made Donald and Ivana the toast of Manhattan’s gilded crowd Wyman was exercising Victorian decorum Even if decorum didn’t describe the Hollywood of the 1930s and ’40sReagan played off his good looks and broad-shouldered Everyman charm well into his old age But his early days in Hollywood A parade of biographies and tell-alls describe him as a playerFrom Elizabeth Taylor to Lana Turner to Marilyn Monroe the Gipper was a guy who allegedly got aroundWyman and Reagan fell in love on the set Their marriage in 1940 was his first and her third They divorced in 1949 after Wyman reportedly fell in love with another co-star Lew AyersShe didn’t marry Ayers but her part in "Johnny Belinda"
