Martil Moroccans Favorite Summer Vacation Destination

Rabat – Avito, Moroccan leader of online ads, announced the results of a study on Moroccans’ vacation accommodation choices. According to the survey, Moroccans opt for the north of the kingdom to enjoy their summer vacation.The study was carried out on two bases: an analysis of searches and visits carried out on Avito on the holiday accommodation section from May to July 2017, and a survey carried out in April on a sample of 800 people.Decidedly, Moroccans love to sunbathe under the gentle sun of the Mediterranean, as Martil seems to be the favorite destination of summer visitors, followed by El Oualidia, Marrakech, Tetouan-Cabo Negro, and El Jadida. The study shows that 50 percent of holiday makers prefer to rent an apartment or a house, with North of the kingdom and its beaches seeming therefore very popular with Moroccans in this period. Proof can be found in the spectacular surge in prices of rental of holiday homes in Martil, whose prices can easily exceed MAD 1,000 for a rudimentary apartment of two rooms.Moroccan also seem to be more inclined to acquire a second home, as 36 percent of respondents expressed a desire to buy a holiday house. A large proportion of the surveyed (32 percent) opted for the outskirts of Rabat as the place of acquisition of their holiday home. The administrative capital is followed by Marrakech, taking 22 percent of summer homes, Agadir with 20 percent, Tangier with 12 percent and the Casablanca suburbs with 8 percent.In terms of budget, 60 percent of respondents say they invest between 400,000 and MAD 800,000 for the acquisition of a second home, while 44 percent have a budget of 200,000 to MAD 400,000, and 6 percent of the respondents foresee a budget of more than MAD 2 million. Those buying homes are most likely to purchase an apartment, followed by traditional houses, empty land, and villas.Meanwhile, the vast majority of respondents (60.7 percent) prefer to acquire a medium-quality accommodation, followed by “economic” housing with 29 percent, and high-quality with only 10 percent of respondents.Direct transactions are widely preferred by Moroccans. In fact, 76 percent of respondents say they do not use a real estate agent to buy their vacation home, compared with 24 percent who prefer to hire a real estate broker. read more

February new car registrations

‘February is traditionally a slow month as new car buyers and the motor industry prepare for the surge that accompanies the March plate change. We expect to see registrations of new cars next month total around 425,000 units, worth some £6 billion,’ said SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan.‘Since the twice-yearly plate change system came into effect in 1999, the new car market has experienced its highest demand in March. Despite continuing pressures on the pocket, having shaken off the financial hangovers of Christmas and New Year celebrations, many motorists should be keen to take advantage of competitive forecourt deals, such as zero per cent finance and free insurance. This should ensure another registration peak in March.’ DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) February new car registrations fell 2,410 units to 73,586 unitsYear to date registrations remained up 2.5 per cent to 239,189 unitsDiesel demand fell slightly to 28,156 units, but still held a 38.3 per cent market shareSupermini demand remains strong, up 7,783 units or 11.5 per cent in the year-to-date read more

The Greek refugee village at Bonegilla

first_imgIn July 2018, on the behest of Anastasios [Tasos] Kolokotronis, my partner Athanasios and I visited Nea Magnisia, a village 11 kilometres outside Thessaloniki. There, we met with Tasos’ relatives, walked in a church procession and accepted an award from the town council on his behalf.The award recognised Tasos’ role in preserving Nea Magnisia’s history, through stories and models that are on exhibit at the Bonegilla Migrant Experience (BME) national heritage site.Tasos migrated to Australia in 1954. He has since lived in Melbourne with his wife Christina Tzega and three generations after him.Nea Magnisia is his natal village, and the account of its history, related in the book of his life, is embedded in his autobiography.Tasos’ miniatures offer a detailed record of a village built to accommodate refugees following the 1923 forced population exchange between Turkey and Greece.The church, council building, school, and several individual houses have been recreated from memory with remarkable attention to house form, fenestrations, roof tiles and fencing.The buildings are populated with figures and animals, many using implements and vehicles of that era. More importantly, the exhibit demonstrates how basic houses provided to over one million refugees were adapted and emplaced.Although the collection is nostalgic, and Nea Magnisia has long since transformed into a bustling town of multi-storey apartment buildings, it provides evidence of government hospitality to culturally different, Turkish-speaking refugees in a time of social hostility and poverty.Tasos Kolokotronis at home in Strathmore with his models, 2013.

PierisThe Church of St Athanasios today. Photo: A. TsakonasTasos Kolokotronis at home in Strathmore with his models, 2013. Photo: A. PierisTasos came to Australia with 600 others on the ship Cyrenia and spent a hot, fly-ridden month at Greta camp, which he escaped at first opportunity. He found his way to Melbourne and worked as a motor mechanic at Queens Bridge Motors, and later at the Commonwealth Aircraft Company and Ansett Airlines. Upon his retirement, he returned to his memories.Magnisia stands for Manisa in Anatolia, Turkey. The 400 refugee families who settled in the village came from Muradiye and Hamidiye in Manisa and from Bursa. Group identities were kept intact and named after natal homelands inserting hundreds of sites in Ottoman Asia Minor into the geographic imagination of Greece. Many of them have the prefix ‘nea’ (new).The Refugee Settlement Commission (RSC) administered the settlement process funded by the League of Nations. In addition to the vacated former Muslim properties, some 509 new agrarian colonies were created for 180,000 people on 359,000 hectares of land. Some 75 of these were in Thessaloniki’s immediate vicinity, while more than 50 new colonies were built around the city. This was Greece’s first experiment with social housing. The Macedonia ResettlementDirectorate commissioned Sommerfeld-Dehatege company (DHTG) to build 10,000 dwellings. A further 15,000 were built by local companies.At the BME site, Nea Magnisia appears as a nostalgic reconstruction by a former Greek migrant. In fact, they are unsure how long they can maintain the exhibit given the poor climate controls within the facility and its lack of direct relevance for Bonegilla’s heritage. They lack the funds needed to create the display cases essential for preserving the miniatures. This is unfortunate because Nea Magnisia exemplifies a historical example of refugee integration that Australia might well emulate. It’s story is especially pertinent to Bonegilla, a similar historical entry point.References:· Colonas, Vassilis 2003, ‘Housing and the Architectural Expression of Asia Minor Greeks Before and After 1923’, in R Hirschon ed., Crossing the Aegean: an appraisal of the 1923 compulsory population exchange between Greece and Turkey, Studies in forced migration, vol. 12, Berghahn Books, New York, 163-178.· Hastaoglou-Martinidis, Vilma 1997, ‘A Mediterranean City in Transition: Thessaloniki between the two World Wars’, Architecture and Civil Engineering, vol 1, no. 4, 493-507.* Anoma Pieris is a Professor in Architecture at the University of Melbourne’s School of Design.

Fnacbook le marché des liseuses électroniques se développe en France

first_imgFnacbook : le marché des liseuses électroniques se développe en FranceFrance – De nouvelles liseuses électroniques apparaissent sur le marché français. Plusieurs offres se font à l’approche de Noël et les e-books cherchent à s’organiser pour ne pas être victime d’un piratage analogue à celui auquel a dû faire face le secteur musical.Jeudi, la Fnac, premier vendeur de livres et de tablettes numériques en France, a annoncé le lancement prochain de sa liseuse Fnacbook 3G. D’une valeur de 199 euros, l’appareil contiendra 2.000 titres et permettra d’accéder à un catalogue en ligne de quelque 80.000 livres et 750 bandes dessinées. Il disposera d’une connexion 3G gratuite, grâce à un partenariat avec SFR, et permettra de surfer sur la toile via le Wi-Fi. Le Fnacbook sera en outre compatible avec l’iPhone et l’iPad d’Apple.À lire aussiiPad Mini : la coque qui révèle ce que peut être la tabletteDe leur côté, les distributeurs de livres France Loisirs et Chapitre lancent la liseuse Oyo à 149 euros à la fin du mois. Ajoutées au Kindle commercialisé par Amazon et aux produits d’autres acteurs, comme Samsung et Sony, les Français désireux de se procurer un e-book auront à faire un choix parmi une quinzaine de modèles.Ces liseuses numériques connaissent un immense succès aux Etats-Unis mais en France, le secteur est encore relativement restreint. Clément Hering, analyste à GfK, indique que la différence de prix “n’est pas assez sensible pour que le grand public” se tourne vers les liseuses, comparativement aux offres que proposent l’iPhone et l’iPad d’Apple.  “Le marché français péchait également jusque-là par une l’offre de contenus en français réduite et par la rareté de plateformes unifiées centralisant les titres”, précise-t-il.A l’heure actuelle, l’offre s’élargit avec l’apparition de nouvelles plateformes (Numic d’Hachette par exemple)  et l’apparition de nouveaux composants devrait permettre aux prix de baisser dans les prochains mois.Le 22 octobre 2010 à 16:27 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Hubble Space Telescope Spots Living Fossil Galaxy Outside Milky Way

first_img Hubble Captures Saturn’s ‘Phonograph Record’ Ring SystemHubble Captures Gorgeous Star’s Final Stages of Life Stay on target Astronomers using the Hubble Space Telescope to study white dwarf stars stumbled upon a new cosmic neighbor.While searching the globular cluster NGC 6752, an international team of scientists  discovered a compact collection of stars millions of light years away.Only a fraction of the size of the Milky Way and incredibly faint, the so-called Bedin 1 system is considered a dwarf spheroidal galaxy—defined by their small size, low luminosity, and lack of dust and old stellar populations.Dwarf spheroidal galaxies are not uncommon: There are at least 36 in our Local Group of galaxies.But Bedin 1 stands out from the crowd.“Not only is it one of just a few dwarf spheroidals that have a well-established distance, but it is also extremely isolated,” according to the European Space Agency, which clocked it at 30 million light years from the Milky Way and 2 million light years from the nearest plausible large galaxy host, NGC 6744.“This makes it possibly the most isolated small dwarf galaxy discovered to date,” the ESA announcement said.Based on the properties of its stars, astronomers believe the galaxy is about 13 billion years old—nearly as ancient as the Universe itself.“The discovery of Bedin 1 was a truly serendipitous find,” the ESA said. “Very few Hubble images allow such faint objects to be seen, and they cover only a small area of the sky.”This isn’t the space telescope’s first headline of the year, though.Last month, NASA and the ESA released the most detailed image of our close neighbor, the Triangulum Galaxy, located a mere 3 million light years from Earth.You may have spotted the Triangulum Galaxy—also known as Messier 33 or NGC 598—on a particularly clear night: It’s that faint, blurry object in the constellation of Triangulum (the Triangle).More on Space Telescope Should Last At Least 5 More YearsHubble Telescope Supports Evidence of Distant ExomoonNASA’s Curiosity Rover Snaps a Selfie Before Its Next Mars Journeylast_img read more

US visas to 6 Muslim nations drop

first_imgAn international passenger (L) arrives at Dulles International Airport as a man ® waits for loved ones to arrive in Dulles, Virginia, U.S. September 24, 2017. Reuters File PhotoIn the first two months after a June Supreme Court ruling allowed partial implementation of president Donald Trump’s travel ban, visas issued on average each month to citizens of six countries targeted by the order were 18 per cent lower compared to the month prior to the ban, a Reuters analysis of government data shows.The 3,268 visas issued in July and 3,884 visas issued in August to citizens of the six majority-Muslim countries were down from 4,351 issued in June. The July figure was lower than the monthly average at any point since 2007, when an average of 3,080 visas per month were issued to those countries.The lower July and August numbers were especially noteworthy, immigration attorneys say, because a larger number of visas are typically issued in the summer months, as foreign students prepare to arrive in the United States for the fall semester.“We are processing visa applications for nationals of the six affected countries as directed by the Executive Order and to the extent permitted by court decisions,” a State Department official said on condition of anonymity when asked about the lower numbers.The decline comes on top of already plummeting figures for U.S. visas issued to citizens of Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen after Trump issued an executive order in late January halting entry of travelers from those countries for 90 days.That order, and a more limited form of the ban issued in March, were hamstrung by months of legal challenges until the Supreme Court approved a limited version in June. But in the interim, the State Department issued far fewer visas to travelers from those six countries compared to the number issued in 2016 under the administration of president Barack Obama.On Sunday, Trump issued a third version of the ban, which indefinitely restricts travelers from Iran, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Chad and North Korea. Certain government officials from Venezuela will also be barred.From March through June, a period when Trump’s order was mostly blocked by the courts, citizens of the six countries were issued an average of 3,929 visas monthly, 42 per cent fewer than the 2016 monthly average of 6,799, according to State Department data. After the Supreme Court ruling, that monthly average was 47 per cent lower than in 2016.Trump’s initial travel ban, which barred citizens of the six countries as well as Iraq, sparked chaos and protests at airports around the United States. Issued with little forewarning, the order’s scope was unclear and sowed confusion among travelers as well as authorities responsible for implementing it. Courts quickly enjoined the main parts of the order. Trump eventually issued a new order that excluded Iraq and delayed its enactment to allow the administration and travelers time to prepare.But that order, too, was soon blocked by courts. The case eventually reached the Supreme Court, which allowed a limited version of the ban affecting only those citizens of the six countries lacking “bona fide” ties to the United States. After Trump issued the revised ban on Sunday, the Supreme Court canceled oral arguments scheduled  for Oct. 10 to decide whether or not the earlier version of the ban was discriminatory.Even as sharply fewer visas were being issued, the president often complained on social media and in speeches about limits imposed by U.S. courts on the two executive orders establishing the travel ban.“The travel ban into the United States should be far larger, tougher and more specific-but stupidly, that would not be politically correct!” Trump tweeted on 15 September.‘CHILLING EFFECT’Because the State Department only releases data on how many visas are issued and not total application numbers, it is unclear if the drop is due to fewer people applying, or because the administration is denying more applications.In addition, a month-by-month comparison with prior years is not possible because the State Department released only annual numbers – not monthly data – until March of this year.Stephen Pattison, a former U.S. consular official and now an immigration attorney, said he suspects that the huge drop in visas issued is due to fewer people applying rather than higher rejection rates.“Quantifying the chilling effect of the Trump administration’s policies on the international public is hard to do, but I think that’s the biggest impact of what this administration has done,” Pattison said. “This atmosphere is causing bona fide, legitimate travelers to think twice about coming to the United States.”Michael Boos, general counsel for the conservative nonprofit Citizens United, which filed a brief to the Supreme Court in support of the Trump administration in the travel ban case, said the figures show the ban is having its intended effect.“Clearly the purpose of the temporary ban was to reduce the number of visas that would be issued to persons from the affected countries, so it’s not surprising that…when the court reinstated the ban, the number of visas would have dramatically diminished,” Boos said. “If people are deterred from seeking admission to the United States because they’re going to go through a vetting process that’s real and substantial, then maybe they shouldn’t be coming here in the first place.”last_img read more

Are Cheap Laptops Good Enough My Month with a Sub500 PC

first_imgCan a cheap laptop replace a premium PC? To find out, I spent a month using a sub-$500 as my primary machine both at work and at home. My goal was not only to see what a low-price laptop is capable of, but also to determine what limitations you face when purchasing a budget notebook over a premium laptop. On a personal level, I selfishly hoped to silence the doubters in my office who didn’t think I would last the entire month.Full of confidence, I contacted Acer who graciously lent me the Aspire E 15 (our current best laptop under $500) to test my hypothesis that a budget laptop can accommodate the majority of our readers’ needs, whether those be at the office, at home or while traveling. However, by the end of my 30-day plight, that optimism was replaced with the realization that budget laptops still have some serious limitations.MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Smith asked in a deadpan tone when I described my 30-day challenge.While I’ve generally had good experiences reviewing budget machines, I knew I’d have to make some compromises switching from my business laptop — a Dell Latitude 7490 with a Core i7 CPU –– to the $329 Aspire E 15 running on a Core i3 CPU.MORE: Best Hard Drive SpeedThe first thing I noticed when I took the Aspire E 15 out of the box was how much heavier it was than my work computer. I complained about the laptop’s heft in my review, but the reality of the next month sank in as my arms grew sore from holding it.Furthermore, the Aspire E 15’s 15-inch, 1080p display was a notable downgrade from the Latitude 7490’s vivid panel. I knew the display wouldn’t be as vibrant or as bright based on our lab testing. After all, the Aspire E 15’s panel covers only 62.3 percent of the sRGB color gamut, whereas the Latitude 7490 reached 118 percent. And regarding brightness, the Aspire E 15 peaked at 227 nits compared with the Latitude, which reached 277 nits. Still, I wasn’t ready for the Aspire E 15’s poor viewing angles, which made it difficult to see content unless I was looking at it from the perfect angle.My optimism took another blow when the laptop needed about 2 minutes to boot up to the setup menu. And things went downhill from there. I encountered crippling lag during my initial setup as I logged into my Gmail account and synced bookmarks and settings in Chrome. Fortunately, the laptop’s performance improved once everything was in place, and the Aspire E 15 didn’t freeze or kick me out of any programs.But I hadn’t even completed the setup process when I hit the next major roadblock. The Aspire E 15 took more than 4 minutes to restart after I removed bloatware (including the pre-installed Norton antivirus software that kept telling me that my trial had ended) and installed Avast, a proper antivirus solution.The performance issues only got worse from there. With a Core i3-8130U, 6GB of RAM and a slow-moving 1TB, 5,000-rpm hard drive, the Aspire E 15 simply couldn’t keep up with my day-to-day workload. I experienced severe slowdowns during an average workday, in which I ran multiple Chrome pages, each with around a dozen tabs. It’s not as if I was using the sort of demanding programs an engineer or a designer might use, either; I spend the majority of my workday listening to music through my Sony WH-1000xM3 wireless headphones while typing in Google Docs.My first hard restart came at the start of week two. A pleasant Windows 10 background greeted me when I opened the computer to start the day. As much as I enjoyed looking at the beautiful image, there was a problem: where were the sign-in options? After waiting a few minutes for login credentials and exhausting every option, I was forced to press and hold down the power button for a hard reset.Budget laptops are typically thicker and made of cheaper materials than premium machines, and the 5-pound Aspire E 15 plastic frame is no exception. I dreaded taking the Aspire E 15 on my frequent weekend trips to Detroit because hauling around the hefty laptop made walking around LaGuardia Airport more painful than it already is. Furthermore, my 40-minute subway trek to work every day was a lot less enjoyable with this heavy machine in my backpack.MORE: Laptops with the Best Overall PerformanceMoving from a premium laptop to a budget machine was a strict lesson in compromise. However, there were some things I liked about the Aspire E 15, particularly its all-day battery life. I kept the Aspire E 15 unplugged at home and rarely had to recharge it before I got back to the office on Monday. The laptop’s trackpad was responsive throughout my trial and I enjoyed typing on the full-size keyboard (with numeric keypad). I was also able to charge my phone and smartwatch using the multiple USB-A ports on the Aspire E 15, though I disappointingly couldn’t scrounge up a physical disk to test the included DVD-RW drive.And although I ran into some performance issues at the office, the Aspire E 15 handled my everyday workload at home. I browsed the web with a few tabs open, watching YouTube videos and streamed my Saturday morning German soccer games without feeling tempted to grab my Dell XPS 15.My cheat dayThere is never a slow day at the office but my third week of using the Aspire E 15 was particularly hectic. Between embargoed news posts and articles I had to schedule for a long weekend, I couldn’t afford to waste any time.I arrived at work on Monday at 8:45 a.m. ready to tackle my review of the HP Spectre x360 but my progress was halted before It even began. It took 15 minutes for me to sign in to the computer and another 2 minutes to open Chrome and load a Google Doc.MORE: Best and Worst Laptop BrandsTo get things moving along, I pulled up the Task Manager and closed every program I didn’t need running in the background. That temporary solution worked for about an hour until multiple Chrome tabs overwhelmed the laptop’s sluggish CPU.At this point, I needed to make a decision: either continue using the laptop and risk missing my deadline or go back to my work and give my co-workers the satisfaction that their doubts were warranted. Reluctantly, I chose the latter. I desperately needed a cheat day.It was as if a weight had been lifted off my shoulders the moment I started using my premium business laptop. My productivity improved exponentially and none of the performance problems I faced with the E 15 were present on the Latitude. Web pages loaded quickly, programs took seconds to install and there wasn’t any lag, even while I was connected to a VPN and had music streaming in the background.Forced to adaptTransitioning from a powerful business laptop to the sub-$500 Aspire E 15 felt a lot like my experience of moving from Texas to New York City. Now living in a cramped apartment, I have no other option but to stay organized or live helplessly in a pile of clutter.MORE: Best Acer LaptopsI found myself taking more time out of my day to close programs in order to keep things moving smoothly. The Aspire E 15 ran well when I had 15 web pages open, but it struggled once I crossed that threshold or ran more demanding tasks, like streaming the Overwatch League on Twitch.Parting thoughtsIf there’s one thing I learned in the past month, it’s that if you can save up for a laptop that meets our minimum recommended specs — a Core i5 CPU, 8GB of RAM and an SSD — then do it. The gap in performance between a laptop with those components and a PC that costs less than $500 is massive.My other big takeaway is that even the best budget laptops don’t offer enough power for business use, especially those without an SSD. It’s not worth saving money on a budget machine if your work requires you to keep dozens of browser tabs open or to run CPU-intensive software.The Aspire E 15 is still a fine option for those who want to save some money but need a notebook for light tasks, like checking email, watching YouTube videos or posting on social media. But on the whole, my 30-day experiment with a sub-$500 proved the adage that you get what you pay for.Credit: Laptop Mag by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoForbesAmerica’s Richest Self-Made WomenForbesUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoVerizon WirelessThis new phone will blow your mind.Verizon WirelessUndoAdvertisementlast_img read more

Its time to shellebrate World Turtle Day

first_imgLIFE Sydney Aquarium shell-ebrates World Turtle DayIt’s time to shell-ebrate World Turtle DayToday is World Turtle Day – a day to bring attention to and raise awareness, knowledge and respect of turtles. World Turtle Day is a great opportunity for everyone to consider the ways in which human activities can tip the scales against the survival of these ancient mariners.Worldwide, six of the seven Sea Turtle species are classified as threatened or endangered due to human actions and lifestyles – a major threat to turtles is plastic pollution. This was experienced first-hand in February, when SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium opened its Animal Rescue Centre and welcomed its first patient, a Green Sea Turtle named Matilda. Emily Best, Senior Aquarist at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, said: “We got a call back in February from a member of the public who advised us that a Green Sea Turtle was found struggling in Dolans Bay, Port Hacking (NSW). The female turtle was underweight, suffering from buoyancy issues and covered in barnacles.” After naming her Matilda, the member of the public that found the sick turtle, contacted the curatorial team and a home was immediately set up for her in SEA LIFE Sydney’s Animal Rescue Centre.“Matilda wasn’t eating much at the beginning and we were becoming quite concerned, then after two weeks we came in to see that she had passed plastic during the night. The poor thing had ingested over one meter of fishing line and a sticker from a Turkish candy bar, which had clearly caused her discomfort, pain and impacted her appetite.“After gaining 4kgs and receiving approval from the vet, the team from SEA LIFE transported Matilda by boat to deeper waters, a few kilometres from Maroubra Beach and released her back into the wild last month. Matilda’s rescue reinforces the devastating impact that plastic pollution is having on marine life, who mistake plastic for food. Fortunately for Matilda, there was a happy ending but this won’t always be the case if we don’t start to change our ways,” added Emily.Tips to reduce plastic consumption this World Turtle Day:Consider if a straw is necessaryInvest in a recycled drinking cup or water bottleTry and stop using plastic bagsRecycleSEA LIFE attractions across Australia and New Zealand have launched a limited edition World Turtle Day Keep Cup in order to raise much needed funds for these ancient creatures, many species of which are critically endangered. $5 from the sale of every Keep Cup will go to SEA LIFE’s charity arm – the SEA LIFE Trust – to help in their endeavour to protect turtles through research, campaigns and education. The limited edition Keep Cup can be purchased online when buying a SEA LIFE ticket, or via the SEA LIFE attraction’s gift shops. For more information on the turtles at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, visit: at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium shell-ebrate World Turtle Day with cheeky resident Loggerhead Turtles, Dave and Chuong who love eating squid!

first_imgEmiratesqantas Qantas and Emirates have announced additional network changes under the joint partnership that provides customer services between Australia and New Zealand.*From March 2018, Emirates will stop flying from Melbourne and Brisbane to Auckland, and instead focus on its non-stop Auckland-Dubai service. Emirates will retain its existing daily A380 flights from Dubai to Christchurch via Sydney, and the airline is also evaluating potential new direct services between New Zealand and Dubai.Qantas will increase the frequency of its services between the two countries, adding seven new return flights per week between Melbourne and Auckland and an extra two return services per week between Brisbane and Auckland. Some of these services will be up-gauged from a 737 to a wide-body A330.Qantas’ new trans-Tasman services will carry Emirates code and will connect seamlessly to Qantas’ London services via Perth or Singapore and Emirates’ services between Australia and Europe via Dubai.The airlines have applied to regulators to extend partnership until 2023The submission includes adjustments to trans-Tasman servicesCo-ordinated route changes improve connectivity and schedule choice across combined network – including Qantas’ re-routing of its Sydney-London service via Singapore rather than Dubai, and Emirates’ new, fourth daily A380 Sydney-Dubai service.President of Emirates airline, Sir Tim Clark, said the first five years of the partnership has been a success.“Reauthorisation of the partnership will allow us to leverage our combined network strengths to offer customers even more flight choices and reciprocal benefits for our millions of frequent flyer members.“It will enable us to continue developing world-class customer experiences, and contribute to stimulating increased opportunities for international trade, tourism and commerce.”Qantas Group CEO, Alan Joyce said the network changes outlined in the airlines’ submission to the regulators provide even more options for customers.“Since 2013 we have delivered more choice and a larger network to eight million passengers who have travelled more than 65 billion kilometres on our joint network.“We are now enhancing the partnership to reflect customer demand, new aircraft technology and our respective network strengths.“The premise of the partnership has always been that we could serve our customers better together. That’s certainly been true for the past five years and now we’re evolving our joint network so we can serve them even better for the next five.”Tickets and existing bookingsTickets for Qantas’ new Tasman services will be available progressively from today (12 October 2017)Emirates customers with existing bookings impacted by the Tasman changes will be re-accommodated onto Qantas services or will be given the option to change their flights*subject to government and regulatory approvalsᶺsubject to slot approvalslast_img read more

first_img FILE – In this October 1987, file photo, Adrian Cronauer, a disc jockey on the Saigon-based Dawn Buster radio show from 1965-1966 whose experiences in the Vietnam War were chronicled in the movie “Good Morning, Vietnam,” poses outside his home in Philadelphia, Pa. Cronauer died Wednesday, July 18, 2018. He was 79. Cronauer opened his Armed Forces Radio show with “Goooooood morning, Vietnam!” (AP Photo/Charles Krupa, File) by Ben Finley, The Associated Press Posted Jul 19, 2018 12:37 pm PDT Last Updated Jul 19, 2018 at 7:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NORFOLK, Va. – Adrian Cronauer, the man whose military radio antics inspired a character played by Robin Williams in the film “Good Morning, Vietnam,” has died. He was 79.Mary Muse, the wife of his stepson Michael Muse, said Thursday that Cronauer died Wednesday from an age-related illness. He had lived in Troutville, Virginia, and died at a local nursing home, she said.During his service as a U.S. Air Force sergeant in Vietnam in 1965 and 1966, Cronauer opened his Armed Forces Radio show with the phrase, “Goooooood morning, Vietnam!”Williams made the refrain famous in the 1987 film, loosely based on Cronauer’s time in Saigon.The film was a departure from other Vietnam war movies that focused on bloody realism, such as the Academy Award-winning “Platoon.” Instead, it was about irreverent youth in the 1960s fighting the military establishment.“We were the only game in town, and you had to play by our rules,” Cronauer told The Associated Press in 1987. “But I wanted to serve the listeners.”The military wanted conservative programming. American youths, however, were “not into drab, sterile announcements” with middle-of-the-road music, Cronauer said, and the battle over the airwaves was joined.In the film, Williams quickly drops Perry Como and Lawrence Welk from his 6 a.m. playlist in favour of the Dave Clark Five.Cronauer said he loved the movie but much of it was Hollywood make-believe. Robin Williams’ portrayal as a fast- talking, nonconformist, yuk-it-up disc jockey sometimes gave people the wrong impression of the man who inspired the film.“Yes, I did try to make it sound more like a stateside station,” he told The AP in 1989. “Yes, I did have problems with news censorship. Yes, I was in a restaurant shortly before the Viet Cong hit it. And yes, I did start each program by yelling, ‘Good Morning, Vietnam!’”The rest is what he delicately called “good script crafting.”When the film was released, the presidential campaign of Democrat Jesse Jackson called asking if Cronauer would help out. The conversation died quickly after Cronauer asked the caller if she realized he was a Republican.In 1992, George H. W. Bush’s re-election campaign taped a TV ad slamming Bill Clinton’s draft record. In the ad, Cronauer accused Clinton of lying.“In many ways, I’m a very conservative guy,” he said. “A lifelong, card-carrying Republican can’t be that much of an anti-establishment type.”Cronauer was from Pittsburgh, the son of a steelworker and a schoolteacher. After the military, he worked in radio, television and advertising.In 1979, Cronauer saw the film “Apocalypse Now” with his friend Ben Moses, who also served in Vietnam and worked at the Saigon radio station.“We said that’s not our story of Vietnam,” Moses recalled Thursday. “And we made a deal over a beer that we were going to have a movie called ‘Good Morning, Vietnam.’”It wasn’t easy. Hollywood producers were incensed at the idea of a comedy about Vietnam, said Moses, who co-produced the film.“I said ‘It’s not a comedy — it’s the sugar on top of the medicine,” Moses said.Writer Mitch Markowitz made the film funny, and director Barry Levinson added the tragic-comedy aspect, Moses said. Williams’ performance was nominated for an Oscar.Moses said the film was a pivotal moment in changing the way Americans thought about the Vietnamese and the war.Muse, the wife of Cronauer’s stepson, said the movie “helped open dialogue and discussion that had long been avoided.”“He loved the servicemen and servicewomen all over the world and always made time to personally engage with them,” she said.She added that he was “a loving and devoted husband to his late wife Jeane (as well as a) father, grandfather and great-grandfather.”Cronauer attended the University of Pennsylvania’s law school and went into the legal profession, working in communications law and later handling prisoner-of-war issues for the Pentagon.“I always was a bit of an iconoclast, as Robin (Williams) was in the film,” Cronauer told the AP in 1999. “But I was not anti-military, or anti-establishment. I was anti-stupidity. And you certainly do run into a lot of stupidity in the military.”center_img Airman who inspired ‘Good Morning, Vietnam’ film has diedlast_img read more
