The Anatomy of Fear Wouldn’t you love to take an expert traveler with you on every trip? Someone who would know exactly what to do in every situation? Someone who could get you where you needed to be as quickly as possible? Well, you can’t always choose who your travel partners are, but you can make sure you’re aware of the latest travel tips and tricks.Whether you’re traveling for business or pleasure, there’s a lot of opportunity for stress. Flying, staying in hotels and navigating your destination can all be a hassle. Make jet-setting a little easier with this insider knowledge:Complete a before-you-go checklistA few days in advance, make a checklist of all the important to-do items you’ll need to accomplish before you embark on your travels. This list should include locating your passport and necessary documents, confirming reservations, calling your bank and credit card companies to let them know where you’ll be, and tending to your household needs. Your trip will be off to a seamless start when you ensure everything is taken care of from the get-go.Always carry-on if you canTake advantage of the ability to carry a smaller suitcase on the plane with you. Invest in a reliable, carry-on sized roller bag that will work no matter what kind of trip you’re taking. This not only drives you to pack efficiently, it also saves you the hassle of ever having to check a bag.Innovate on your transportationWhen you finally arrive at your destination, the last thing you want to do is figure out how to get from A to B, especially at the airport. These days, smartphones make getting a ride more convenient than ever. The ridesharing app Lyft aims to eliminate traffic congestion and give people safe, easy and affordable transit alternatives for getting around. “I’ve used Lyft during all my layovers for the past two years,” says Las Vegas flight attendant, Cheryl Ross. “It’s great for airport travel as well as a safe solution to drinking and driving when you’re out at night. The drivers are people from the community and they often make the best tour guides.” Best of all, payment is done directly through the app, so no need to worry about carrying cash. If you’re a new user, you can redeem $20 off your first ride with the code FLYLYFT20.Speak up about special occasionsWhen staying in a hotel, make sure to mention if you’re celebrating a special occasion at the front desk. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary or honeymoon, the hotel might just upgrade your accommodations. Additionally, if you’re staying at a larger chain hotel, it never hurts to join their free loyalty program. If they know you’re a member, you could receive extra perks like early check in and late check out.Act like a local to stay safeWhen you’re in an unfamiliar city, it’s always important to take extra safety precautions. However, one of the best ways to make sure you don’t become a target is to maintain a confident attitude. It’s often the times when people are unsure, lost or stressed out when they run into trouble while traveling. Remain calm, cool and collected and always walk like you know where you are, even if you don’t.Follow these tips and you’ll be telling stories from your adventurous travels, instead of waiting in line and calling around to find your lost luggage.

Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing

first_imgWednesday Jan 21, 2015 Mamuka Gorgodze finishes off outstanding Toulon team try in Ulster thrashing Steffon Armitage scored a hat-trick as Toulon stormed into the European Champions Cup quarter finals with a 60-22 victory over Ulster at the weekend. This great team try, finished off by Mamuka Gorgodze, was one of the best of the round.  The reigning European champions are the first side to reach the quarter finals following the eight try rout. The bonus point win came about through scores for Argentina’s Nicolas Sanchez, South Africa’s Bryan Habana, France’s Mathieu Bastareaud, Italy’s Martin Castrogiovanni, Englishman Armitage’s treble and this classic try by Georgian, Gorgodze.Welsh fullback Leigh Halfpenny kicked 20 points for Toulon, on a day when the losing side actually grabbed a four-try bonus point, as Ulster scored well taken tries via Paddy Jackson, Mike McComish, Jared Payne and Lewis Stevenson.Toulon now has a five point Pool 3 lead over Leicester, who themselves picked up a bonus point win as they beat Scarlets 40-23. The Tigers will need to win away at Ulster in the next round of play if they are to join Toulon in the last eight. The tryfest featured an impressive hat-trick for flanker Armitage, whose heroics made no impact on England coach Stuart Lancaster, who left him out of the England training squad for the Six Nations.The stunning try below, featuring some superb hands in the build up, was voted as Try of the Week in the official EPC Poll of the top tries from round five.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Great Tries Related Articles 26 WEEKS AGO Incredible athleticism for sensational try… 26 WEEKS AGO ARCHIVE: Suntory score amazing try to upset… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: All 12 tries from EPIC Bristol-Clermont… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Likely House Speaker Says Highway Bill Will Get Done

first_img Facebook Twitter Likely House Speaker Says Highway Bill Will Get Done By Gary Truitt – Oct 5, 2015 House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, who is likely the successor to outgoing House Speaker John Boehner, said Friday “we’re going to get the highway bill done.” McCarthy is currently the GOP majority leader and says the House will consider a transportation bill this month. The current surface transportation authorization expires at the end of October, meaning the House has limited time to tackle a bill. The Senate in June passed a six-year bill known as the DRIVE Act. However, the Senate bill only included enough funding to pay for three years of programs, according to the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials.McCarthy pledged a six-year transportation funding bill that would not increase the federal gas tax. His comments come as Representative Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, urged Transportation Committee members to pass a highway funding bill on to the full chamber.

“Brazilian Spring” criticism of media OK, but not violence against journalists

first_img to go further June 21, 2013 – Updated on January 20, 2016 “Brazilian Spring” criticism of media OK, but not violence against journalists May 13, 2021 Find out more BrazilAmericas 2011-2020: A study of journalist murders in Latin America confirms the importance of strengthening protection policies Organisation News BrazilAmericas News Receive email alerts Newscenter_img More than 20 journalists have reportedly been physically attacked or injured in the past two weeks of protests in Brazilian cities against bus and subway fare hikes and the poor state of public services.The military police appear to have been responsible for most of these acts of violence, which in some cases have been accompanied by arrests. But some cases were the result of hostility on the part of demonstrators towards news media covering the protests.As the protest movement has grown, fed by online social networks, the range of protest targets has also expanded and now includes Brazil’s mainstream media model.“Criticism of the media and their coverage of the protests is permissible, but not expressions of hatred towards reporters on the ground and still less threats or physical violence against them,” Reporters Without Borders said.“In their desire to question Brazil’s social model, including the relationship between citizens and the media, the protesters must not yield to excesses that endanger civil liberties. The right to cover the news, like the right to demonstrate, is guaranteed by the 1988 democratic constitution. Journalists must be free to cover the protests without fearing for their safety.”After a respite on 17 June, clashes and violence between demonstrators and police grew in intensity again on 18 June, especially in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, despite cancellation of the public transportation price hikes that had triggered the protests in the first place.Agence France-Presse reported that, on 18 June, around 100 protesters in São Paulo tried to expel Caco Barcellos of TV Globo from their march, shouting “manipulator.” TV Globo is part of the Globo media group, Brazil’s largest media conglomerate.Soon afterwards, a group of radical protesters threw stones at a TV Record truck near the São Paulo city hall and set fire to it after it had been ridded of its occupants. TV Record is Brazil’s second biggest TV broadcaster.Finally, also in São Paulo on 18 June, vinegar was thrown in the face of Rita Lisauskas of TV Bandeirantes while she was in the thick of a group of protesters chanting slogans criticizing the “one-sided” and “sensationalist” mainstream media. As a result, some journalists decided not to display their media’s logo.Despite appeals for calm and statements by several union groups and by Brazilian and international organizations that defend freedom of information, the police continue to be accused of frequent violence against journalists.Vladimir Platonow of Agência Brasil and several demonstrators were beaten with batons by security guards at the local train station when they tried to escape from a charge by a special unit of the Military Police (PM) in Niterói, near Rio de Janeiro, on the night of 19 June. Agência Brasil is part of the state-owned Empresa Brasil de Comunicação.Empresa Brasil de Comunicação cameraman Murilo Azevedo was also injured by a teargas canister fired by the PM on 19 June in Niterói.Finally, Pedro Vedova, a journalist with GloboNews (a 24-hour TV news channel that is part of the Globo group), was hit in head by a rubber bullet fired by a police officer outside Rio de Janeiro’s city hall last night.

Subhash Reddy ad BR Gavai heard the matter and noted that Moitra had filed a similar plea which had been dismissed on May 5, 2020. Accordingly, he dismissed the instant plea as well. Today, Advocate-on-Record Rohit Anil Rathi, appearing on behalf of the MP from Krishnanagar (West Bengal), submitted that the previous plea had been withdrawn on May 5th. “I withdrew the petition on May 5; the notification which has been challenged herein came subsequently on May 27. I urge my Lords to only consider the matter in respect of this subsequent development.” However, the Bench was not inclined to entertain the matter and noted, “How can the same Petitioner file another petition on the same issue? This won’t set a right precedent. You shouldn’t have filed it again after you withdrew a similar petition in May.” Accordingly, the bench observed that as the Petitioner had filed a plea for similar relief, which had been dismissed as withdrawn on 5th May, 2020, the Court was not inclined to entertain the instant petition. Corporate Contributions Towards CM Relief Funds/ State Relief Funds For COVID-19 Do Not Qualify As CSR Expenditure, Clarifies MCA In the previous plea, while holding that there was no representation by an aggrieved party before the Supreme Court, a Bench headed by Justice Ashok Bhushan refused to entertain Moitra’s plea which challenged the Circular issued by Ministry of Corporate Affairs (MCA) in so far as it excluded CM’s Relief Funds from the ambit of CSR.  It had been highlighted that to exclude the fund(s) from purview of CSR was in direct contravention of Constitutional tenets of federalism and Article 14 as well as being ultra vires of the Companies Act. Further, the MP had contended that the MCA notification made distinctions on the basis of contributions made to PM CARES Fund and CM Relief Funds as only the former would attract CSR, thereby disincentivizing corporate contributions which the State Governments would have otherwise received.

Largest cocaine seizure in New York in a quarter century

first_imgU.S. Customs and Border Protection(NEW YORK) — The crates said dried fruit from Colombia. There was no indication that they were holding tens of millions of dollars’ worth of cocaine but that is what federal agents said they discovered in the biggest coke bust in New York in a quarter century.After what was described as a routine interdiction, the agents said they found 3,200 pounds of cocaine in a shipping container that arrived at the Port of New York and New Jersey on Feb. 28.The drugs had an estimated street value of $77 million.“This is a significant seizure, in fact it is the largest cocaine seizure at the Port of New York/Newark since May 1994,” said Troy Miller, director of Customs and Border Protection’s New York Field Operations.The cocaine was concealed behind boxes of dried fruit, according to a source familiar with the seizure. The cargo ship arrived in Newark from Buena Ventura, Colombia, and its next stop was Antwerp, Belgium.Authorities weren’t sure whether the cocaine was meant for the United States or Europe, the source said, but the seizure was lauded for keeping the drugs off the streets.“Cocaine, New York’s nemesis of the 90s, is back-indicating traffickers push to build an emerging customer base of users mixing cocaine with fentanyl,” said DEA Special Agent in Charge Ray Donovan. “This record-breaking seizure draws attention to this new threat and shows law enforcement’s collaborative efforts in seizing illicit drugs before it gets to the streets and into users’ hands.” Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.
