United Airlines is Retiring its Last Boeing 747 in Retro Style

United Polaris first class and business class passengers will also be entered into a lottery at the gate. A select few will be upgraded to spend the duration of the flight in the upper deck.When the first Boeing 747 launched in 1968, it was a marvel of aviation technology and innovation. Construction required a staff of 50,000 Boeing employees working almost round the clock to bring the plane to life in just 18 months. Nicknamed the “Queen of the Skies,” it almost single-handedly ushered in the Jet Age of the last century. Passengers fortunate (read: wealthy) enough to fly the aircraft were treated to one of the world’s most glamorous and elegant modes of air travel. The first class cabin boasted a spacious lounge with comfortable seats, full cocktail service, and often even a piano.United’s last international 747 route will fly from Seoul to San Francisco on October 29, 2017. Limited seats aboard the final, celebratory Flight 747 on November 7 are currently available via the company’s mobile app and the United website.Feature image courtesy of Bill Abbott/Flickr After the Wright Brothers’ early success at Kitty Hawk, no plane made more of a mark on aviation history like Boeing’s 747. However, with the advent of bigger, better, faster, more efficient aircraft, the iconic jet’s days are numbered. For the send-off of its last in-service Boeing 747, United Airlines is recreating the aircraft’s maiden 1972 flight in beautiful, retro style.The first Boeing 747 in United’s fleet took off from San Francisco in 1972, bound for Honolulu, Hawaii. On November 7, 2017 the airline’s last 747 will take its final flight along the same route as the appropriately named Flight 747. Ahead of the flight, United pilots and employees will celebrate gate-side with plenty of speeches, cocktails, and reminiscing. En route, passengers will be treated to a custom dining menu and exclusive entertainment that correspond to the early ’70s. Flight attendants will also don outfits original to the period. After touching down in Hawaii, airline employees will offer one last round of celebrations to conclude the historic day. Tattoo Ideas for Men (For When You Have No Idea) last_img read more

Nova Scotians Reminded to be Tickaware

first_img Remove ticks as soon as they are found to prevent or reduce the risk of infection. To remove a tick safely carefully grasp it with tweezers. Get as close to the skin as possible. Gently and slowly pull the tick straight out. Do not jerk, twist or squeeze it. Wash the site with soap and water. Disinfect with rubbing alcohol or hydrogen peroxide to avoid other infections. Blacklegged ticks must be attached to the skin for at least 36 hours to transmit the bacterial infection that causes Lyme disease. Lyme disease is treatable with antibiotics. The earliest and most common symptom of Lyme disease is a bullseye rash at the site of the bite, although the rash is not always in this shape. Other symptoms include fever, fatigue, muscle aches and headaches. Anyone who has been in areas with long grass, shrubs or woods and has these symptoms should seek medical attention. For more information, visit http://novascotia.ca/dhw/CDPC/lyme.asp. Nova Scotians are encouraged to enjoy the outdoors safely by learning to avoid the blacklegged tick bites that can cause Lyme disease. Blacklegged ticks are found throughout Nova Scotia. Tick checks are the most important defence against the spread of tick-borne illness. To avoid ticks take the following precautions when in areas with long grass, shrubs or woods: wear light coloured, long-sleeved shirts, pants and socks so ticks are more visible wear enclosed shoes pull socks up over pant legs and tuck in shirts spray clothing and exposed skin with an insect repellant containing DEET or Icaridin check clothing and exposed skin for ticks after working or playing outside and remove any ticks attached to the skin check pets thoroughly for ticks after spending time outside when possible, take a bath or shower within two hours of coming indoors. This makes it easier to find ticks and washes away loose ones keep grass well cut to minimize suitable habitat for ticks on your property.last_img read more

Military planes help thousands of First Nation evacuees flee Manitoba fires

first_imgWINNIPEG – Many of the 3,700 people fleeing northern Manitoba forest fires were still waiting to fly south on Thursday, more than 24 hours after they left their homes on a journey made complicated by a lack of transportation.“They’re tired. They’re frustrated. There’s anger,” Chief Alex McDougall of Wasagamack First Nation said as he waited along with hundreds of others to board one of two military transport planes bound for Winnipeg, more than 500 kilometres to the south.“Some of us have been sleeping in terminals. Some of us have been sleeping in gymnasiums. There is some food being provided by the local (grocery) stores.”All 2,000 residents of Wasagamack had to leave Tuesday as a large forest fire came within 800 metres of the community. Because there is no airstrip, people took turns piling into boats in small groups for a 20-minute journey across a section of Island Lake to St. Theresa Point.Smoke from the blaze also forced out people with health problems from the St. Theresa Point and Garden Hill reserves. Small charter planes, that can carry between nine and 45 people, began ferrying people south to Brandon and Winnipeg on Wednesday, but a backlog persisted.Thursday morning, two Hercules military transport planes, each capable of carrying 100 people, joined the effort. But the large aircraft could only use the airstrip at Garden Hill, McDougall said, so he and others had to take a two-hour trip by barge from St. Theresa Point to Garden Hill.In Winnipeg, the Canadian Red Cross prepared to welcome the evacuees by turning a 4,300-square-metre hall at the city’s convention centre into an emergency shelter. Volunteers, including members of the Bear Clan Patrol — a non-profit that keeps an eye on inner-city streets — were busy setting up more than 1,000 cots, dozens of eating tables and more.“We’re going to have an area where people can get personal services like hygiene products, hygiene kits, health needs, that sort of thing,” said Shawn Feely, the Canadian Red Cross’s regional vice-president.“Then we have the sleep area … and then we have the eating area and the recreation area. So for little kids, we’ll have people running activities.”By early afternoon, there was a long lineup of evacuees to register at the convention centre. Among them was Malcolm Harper, who had spent two nights in transit with his wife and three children, aged four, 11 and 13 after leaving Wasagamack for St. Theresa Point.“The first night, they put us in classrooms in the school … you could hear everybody, kids crying,” he said.“It’s frustrating, especially on the kids. You’ve got to keep them together.”Other evacuees, however, were being put up in hotel rooms throughout Winnipeg and Brandon.Darlene Monias, standing in line at the convention centre, said she’s grateful to be safe but wonders why she wasn’t selected for the more private accommodations.“How am I going to handle my babies? They’re six and eight, they’re all running around.”Kevin Hart, a regional chief with the Assembly of First Nations, said having elders sleeping on cots in the croweded convention centre is simply unacceptable.“The respect for our elders is first and foremost,” he said. “I can’t see that being a problem, with young able-bodies people transferring out of hotels to give up their beds for the elders.”The Manitoba government said the forest fire was still about one kilometre from Wasagamack, and crews were working the line closest to the community to prevent it from advancing.McDougall said from his vantage point in Garden Hill Thursday morning — just before boarding a Hercules — the smoke seemed to be blowing away.“We have some relief today from the smoke but … there’s still some heavy smoke and fires burning in the area.”— with files from CTV Winnipeglast_img read more

Environment Canada confirming Ottawa hit from an EF3 tornado

first_imgOTTAWA – Environment Canada has confirmed that the Ottawa area was hit by two tornadoes late Friday afternoon.The national weather agency says a powerful EF-3 category twister with winds that reached 265 kilometres per hour ripped through the Ottawa neighbourhood Dunrobin, Ont., about 35 kilometres west of the downtown area, before moving on to devastate a densely populated area of Gatineau, Que.The agency says that at almost the same time a second, slightly less powerful twister, touched down in the south Ottawa neighbourhood of Arlington Woods.The twin tornadoes caused massive damage obliterating dozens of homes, tossing vehicles around, snapping huge trees and injuring several people, at least two of whom were admitted to hospital in critical condition.At one point more than 200,000 hydro customers were blacked out, but as of early Sunday morning, the Hydro Ottawa and Hydro Quebec websites reported the number had been reduced to fewer than 80,000, 70,000 in the Ottawa area and 8,300 in the Outaouais region, which encompasses Gatineau.The Ontario government announced Saturday that it was activating the province’s Disaster Recovery Assistance program in affected areas, while the Quebec government announced it would give the Red Cross $1 million to help with relief efforts.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau also tweeted Saturday day that he’d spoken with the mayors of Ottawa and Gatineau to offer federal assistance.last_img read more

Irish troops vehicle in Syria blast struck a mine while reversing

first_imgAN INVESTIGATION INTO an incident in which Irish troops in Syria were hit by a blast while coming under fire has found that the vehicle they were in reversed onto a landmine.Last week the troops, who are on a United Nations peacekeeping mission in Golan Heights, were travelling in a convoy of armour vehicles in the village of Ruihinah – in the area of separation between Israel and Syria.They were fired on by armed elements from one of the warring factions and a vehicle was damaged in a blast. One soldier sustained minor soft tissue damage.It was originally thought that an improvised explosive device deliberately placed there to target the troops may have been a factor. However a Defence Forces spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that an investigation into the incident has now found that the vehicle “struck a mine” when it reversed while attempting to leave the area.The spokesperson said the mines are “a legacy issue” from the various wars in the 60s and 70s and there is “no evidence to suggest it was targeted”.Ireland has deployed 115 members of the Defence Forces to this UN mission, joining personnel from various international armies including Fiji, Nepal, India and the Philippines.The role of the Irish troops is to provide a mobile company as Force Headquarters Reserve in the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force to cater for reinforcement, escort and other operations in the ‘Area of Responsibility’. Their functions are similar to those provided in Liberia and Lebanon.Read: Irish troops in Syria return fire after being hit by “unknown blast”>Read: Artillery rounds land metres from Irish troops in Syria gun battle>last_img read more

As of Monday, they’re working on something called “Operation Streamline.”KUSI’ Dan Plante reports that there had not been a moment where there has not been a truck, or some sort of Border Patrol vehicle driving along the fence line. “There is quiet a lot of activity going on, I’m not so sure what’s going on, and they’re being tight lipped about it” he said.Dan goes on to explain how a lot of people, “particularly people who do not like Donald Trump,” came up with the program. But, the program started in 2005. In one year under President Obama, 97,000 people were processed under “Operation Streamline.” That is more than any other President, but you never heard the same outcry about the problems then as you do now.

Creating Synergies Between Print and Digital Media That Pay

first_imgPersonalized URLs (pURLS). One of the nagging problems in connecting print to a website was the inability to identify visitors who went online but never made further contact. But pURLs solved that problem by providing a unique URL for each viewer of the printed material. By typing the pURL (which typically includes the recipient’s name) into a browser, the reader is automatically routed to a customized homepage featuring a unique offer. Generally the sponsor includes a special incentive to entice the recipient to use the pURL. For example, an advertiser might include a coupon in the print version with the promise of an even sweeter deal—free shipping, a deeper discount, etc.—by using the pURL.Creating a pURL campaign is simple using specialized software systems available through printers and other independent vendors. Although once used primarily for direct mail, selective binding technology and digital imaging now enables the use of pURLs in magazines.  Mobile Barcodes. Everyone wants to get in on the mobile craze and 2D barcodes provide the ideal solution for creating synergy between print and mobile. These mobile barcodes are two-dimensional codes that provide smartphone users with a link between physical items like print and digital information like video.To capture content held within a mobile barcode, users must take a picture of the code with the digital camera in their software-enabled mobile smart phone. The camera, along with a mobile barcode reader (a decoding software), deciphers the type of data held within the code and acts upon its instructions. These could include connecting the user to a website, downloading an MP3 or dialling a phone number. All of these actions are done instantaneously.Virtually any printing system can print a mobile barcode. Tips for making a mobile barcode more successful include optimizing online content for mobile, offering something of sufficient value to make the extra step worthwhile and making it easy to download the reader.Augmented Reality. More on the cutting edge is virtual reality augmentation with print. These applications require readers to have a webcam on their computer and to download software provided by the publisher or advertiser. The user then holds the printed material about one foot from the computer and watches the print come to life.For instance the pages of a feature article or advertising insert could provide access to different videos related to the corresponding page. Depending on the content and the page, different kinds of interactions are possible. The idea is to use the magazine to navigate through the frames of a video. The software inside the browser recognizes the magazine page in front of the camera and presents the appropriate content on a micro site. The various interactions can be controlled through an Adobe Flash-based application.So, get busy connecting your print and digital channels. Start building those powerhouse campaigns. Not only will it build valuable synergies, but often the results are downright cool. Bruce Jensen is group vice president of sales at Transcontinental Printing, a Saint-Laurent, Quebec-based provider of a full range of print and online personalization services. You can find lots of commentary about future publishing models and how to prosper. Yet many magazines are failing to find their way. Is it because of the fragile economy? That certainly has something to do with it, but doesn’t provide the complete answer. Or is it that print is dying and digital is straining to reach puberty in critical areas like profitability? I’m not quite buying that either. Perhaps the real reason behind our struggles is that we are just beginning to understand how people are using channels. We’re learning that people aren’t just moving from one channel to another. That would be too easy. Instead, the reality is that people are migrating to lots of different channels. So for my money, the issue is one of channel choice and how to further tie channels together to increase qualified readership and raise profitability. Here are three additional ways—ranging from established to newly emerging—to build channel synergy: last_img read more

ACLU lawsuit targets new Puerto Rico penal code

first_img Check your body, save your life New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths The lawsuit seeks a permanent injunction to stop Justice Secretary Guillermo Somoza from enforcing the new law as it relates to protests and demonstrations. A portion of the new code states that those who disrupt, interrupt or prevent legislators from performing public duties or cause disorder while in the immediate view and presence of lawmakers will be charged.The American Civil Liberties Union says the new code uses vague language and does not offer police or potential offenders any guidance about what kind of conduct would be considered criminal.“It’s just plain old unconstitutional no matter how you look at it,” Ramirez said. “What would disturb one legislator may not disturb another legislator.”The spokespeople for the police chief and justice secretary did not immediately return messages for comment. Fortuno spokesman Edward Zayas said he would soon comment. Fortuno has previously denied that the code would infringe on the rights of protesters.Ramirez said he worries the statute, which goes into effect Sept. 1, would likely be applied unevenly and that police would target only certain kinds of protesters.In 2010, students at the University of Puerto Rico launched a 62-day strike to protest an $800 fee to offset budget cuts. Many were injured in clashes with police who used batons, tear gas and pepper spray. Later that year, there were similar clashes during a protest in front of the seaside Capitol building over a motion that closed legislative sessions to the press and public. 0 Comments   Share   New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Associated PressSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) – The ACLU has filed a lawsuit against Puerto Rico’s police chief and justice secretary, saying the island’s new penal code violates the constitutional right to freedom of expression.The lawsuit comes a week after Gov. Luis Fortuno approved the new code that restricts certain types of protests and establishes a three-year prison sentence for violators.“The statute is evidently intended to suppress speech, to stop people from protesting against government policies,” William Ramirez, local ACLU director, said Tuesday. Sponsored Stories As a result of those clashes, the ACLU filed a lawsuit in late June accusing police of using excessive force and violating civil rights. The new lawsuit was added to the previous one as an amended complaint to speed up the court process, Ramirez said.The lawsuit also demands that Police Chief Hector Pesquera create an official policy on how to handle public demonstrations and use of force. Pesquera has previously said that the department already has developed a use-of-force policy approved by federal justice officials.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Nicosia means culture says tourism board

first_imgThe Nicosia Tourism Board (NTB) on Tuesday launched a campaign for the promotion of the island’s capital as the ultimate cultural destination.The campaign ‘Meet Nicosia. Meet Culture’, aims at attracting more visitors to the capital as the majority of tourists who arrive on the island, according to the chairperson of NTB Elena Tanou, do so “for the sea and sun”.“Taking this as a fact and knowing the peculiarities and advantages of Nicosia, we decided to focus on a very basic feature of the city: its rich culture,” Tanou said at a press conference to announce the launch of the campaign. “Nicosia means culture,” she said.The campaign aims to both attract more tourists but also introduce Nicosia to the locals.The campaign will focus on promoting all museums, monuments and cultural spaces of Nicosia, Tanou said, which will also help them to address the big problem of low traffic they face.A pocket guidebook was published with the 51 most important museums, monuments and cultural spaces located throughout the Nicosia district. The guidebook, which will be available in all hotels, the airports of Larnaca and Paphos and central spots of Nicosia, provides information on each of the sites – description, operating hours, entrance fee – in addition to maps guiding visitors to all spaces, from the walled city to the district’s mountainous areas.The guide includes 37 museums, six art galleries and seven monuments.Among the proposed places to visit are the Cyprus Archeological Museum, the Fairy Tale museum, the archeological museum of ancient Dali, the museum of state broadcaster CyBC, of the police, that of Peo trade union, the motorcycle museum, the water museum, the Centre of Visual Arts and Research, the Leventis Municipal Museum of Nicosia and the Troodos Geopark visitor Centre.It also includes the Paphos and Famagusta gates, Hamam Omerye, the Venetian walls, the Tamassos archaeological space, the Eleftheria Monument and the Nicosia aqueduct.The Nicosia tourism product will also be promoted online, through blog articles, online competitions, social media, guided tours.For more information: www.visitnicosia.com.cyYou May LikeSolar SolutionsCalifornia – New Program Giving Solar Panels to Homeowners With Electricity Bills Over $100/mthSolar SolutionsUndoLCR HealthTop Doctor Warns Against Abdominal “Deep” Fat (And How To Get Rid Of It)LCR HealthUndoUnderstand Solar PowerBefore You Buy Expensive Solar Panels In California You Better Read This.Understand Solar PowerUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
