Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to be honoured at upcoming IGLTA conference in

first_img TORONTO — In 1984, the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) held its first convention in San Francisco with the mission to expand LGBTQ tourism globally and be a resource for queer travellers — and the agents, tour operators, hotels and tourism bureaus eager to attract them.For the 35th anniversary, the Annual Global Convention will be in Toronto on May 9-12 with the main programming unfolding at the host hotel, the Westin Harbour Castle. Off-site parties are also planned at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada, the Fairmont Royal York and Casa Loma.Attendees can expect a gathering of leaders in LGBTQ-welcoming travel who are coming to Toronto to share ideas, discuss trends and make connections that will help grow business. The IGLTA committee promises an opportunity for both established travel professionals and newcomers to the LGBTQ market to benefit from three days of educational sessions and networking events.“Supporting LGBTQ travel carries both social and economic benefits for the travel industry,” says John Tanzella, President/CEO, IGLTA when asked about the importance of learning about LGBT travel. “The LGBTQ community travels often so it’s a lucrative segment, but they’re also savvy and loyal, rewarding businesses that understand their needs and connect with them in an authentic way. We’ve seen time and again how destinations and travel businesses that welcome all travellers come out ahead of those that do not.”More news:  CIE Tours launches first-ever River Cruise CollectionA major highlight of this year’s conference will be the Voyage fundraising event presented by Disney Destinations at the Fairmont Royal York on the Friday. It will include a silent auction, cocktails, a networking dinner and the IGLTA Honors, presented with the support of Visit Philadelphia, which celebrates those who have improved the global landscape of LGBTQ tourism. Among this year’s recipients is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who’s being honoured for advancing LGBTQ travel worldwide. It has yet to be confirmed whether he will accept his award in person; in the event that he is unable to attend, Randy Boissonnault, Prime Minister Trudeau’s LGBTQ2 Liaison, will accept on his behalf.The Voyage event will also be attended by well known Canadian athletes, including Olympic gold medal winner Mark Tewksbury, as well as the cast of the Toronto-filmed Queer as Folk.

As Gisele takes her last stroll down the catwalk Brazil has something

first_imgRelated posts:Another huge and open iron mine is carved out of Brazil’s rain forest China throws Brazil multi-billion dollar lifeline for jets, oil DEA agents open Rio de Janeiro office Brazil’s ban on WhatsApp is lifted less than 24 hours after it began RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil — As if she weren’t already famous enough, the final catwalk show Wednesday at São Paulo Fashion Week by Brazilian “über model” Gisele Bündchen has launched a blitzkrieg of tributes in her home country.At just 34, the supermodel who since 2002 has been rated by Forbes the world’s highest earner is to retire from the catwalk, 20 years after her first show. All week, Brazilians have been remembering one of the country’s biggest success stories.And celebrating Bündchen’s world-beating career provides a welcome lift for a national pride punctured by the national soccer team’s 1-7 semi-final drubbing by Germany in the World Cup Brazil hosted last year. By coincidence, Bündchen’s family is of German descent. She grew up one of five sisters in the small town of Horizontina, in the south of Brazil where most German colonization took place.Brazil needs good news. Right now, Gisele is it. With the possible exception of world surf champion Gabriel Medina, Brazilian sports stars in recent years have been hit and miss. The former standout of the BRICS economies is facing a likely recession. And a humiliating corruption scandal centered on state-controlled oil company Petrobras just keeps getting worse — João Vaccari, treasurer for the ruling Workers’ Party, was arrested earlier Wednesday in connection with “Big Oil,” as it has been dubbed.But Bündchen just keeps winning. Forbes calculated that Gisele, as she is known in her home country, has earned $386 million since 2001 — or $427 million if U.S. inflation is factored in. Last year she was made the face of Chanel No. 5 perfume, replacing Marilyn Monroe, whose image had been used to advertise the brand. Chanel got director Baz Luhrmann to direct a lavish commercial to celebrate.And she is married to American football star Tom Brady — of recent Costa Rica waterfall-jumping fame — with whom she has two children. The New England Patriots quarterback was pivotal in this year’s Super Bowl victory, and his wife and children were in the stadium to celebrate.Even better, Gisele was the bigger earner, according to Forbes, earning $47 million last year compared to Brady’s $33.1 million. She may have dated Leonardo DiCaprio, but this Brazilian beauty is nobody’s trophy blonde.“It is a privilege to be doing my last fashion show by choice and yet still be working in other facets of the business,” Bündchen wrote on Facebook Wednesday.São Paulo photographer Luciana Faria, 27, shared an interview with Gisele, illustrated with a photo of the model and her distinctive cheekbones at just 15 years of age, shot outside São Paulo’s municipal market. In a caption, she summed up the feelings of many in two words: “Queen G!”—Phillips is The Washington Post’s correspondent in Rio de Janeiro.

Air Canada South African Airways code share

first_imgAir Canada and South African Airways (SAA) have signed a new code share agreement to offer customers “seamless” travel between Canada and South Africa. Effective 13 December 2013, SAA will code share on Air Canada services between London and Vancouver, Toronto and New York’s John F Kennedy, while Air Canada will in turn code share on SAA flights between London and Johannesburg, New York and Cape Town. Offering customers connecting between the airlines in either London or New York the option to fly on a single itinerary, South African Airways acting general manager commercial Manoj Papa said travellers would “greatly benefit” from the agreement and the resulting “travel choices”.In addition to a single itinerary, with both carriers belonging to the Star Alliance, travellers can also benefit from reciprocal loyalty accumulation and redemption.

Reforesting Cedar Valley is a painstaking process

first_imgOne of the most difficult years ever in terms of wildfires is starting this month, and so it is a good time to recall just how much needs to be done to protect and conserve a forested area.The abundant rain islandwide over the winter months has produced an abundance of weeds which are already fast turning into dry biomass – in other words, great fuel for fires.“Why don’t they plant some new trees?” is the usual refrain when people look at a forested area that has been devastated by fire.But it is not that simple, as one project to conserve just one small area, the Cedar Valley, shows.The Cedrus bevifolia or Cyprus Cedar is endemic to a very small area of the Troodos mountains.Cedrus brevifoliaConserving it is not all about planting trees, although this is one big part of the ‘Kedros’ project, which started on September 1, 2016, and will be completed on August 31, 2020.In fact, 9,200 seedlings will be planted in total, 5,000 of which have already been put into the soil, and the rest will be planted by spring 2020, chief conservator of forests at the environment ministry Andreas Christou said.To add to this, 15 kilos of seeds have been sowed in different parts of the Cedar Valley to strengthen the existing flora.But the main problem with planting is the constant supply of water the young seedlings need over the year.Just 100 to 150 of the small trees have been planted in a Waterboxx, a system the government started testing in 2016. Water in the ‘boxes’ is collected from the atmosphere and is gradually fed to the young seedling, which ordinarily would have to be manually watered for at least the first two years after it has been planted.“They are expensive to buy but we don’t need to irrigate them as they get their water from the atmosphere. We have used them in areas which are difficult to irrigate, in remote places where we cannot reach with tankers,” said Christou, who is also the project coordinator.“We have been pit planting for hundreds of years, it is a standard method,” he said on other methods. “The disadvantage is that irrigation is costly. We have to irrigate the seedlings every one or two weeks.”He explained the results of all the planting and the differences of planting using different methods will not be visible to the naked eye any time soon. “This is a very slow growing species. When we plant a 30-centimetre tree it will grow just 10cm in the next five years. After that, they grow much faster, 10 to 20 centimetres annually.”So much for the tree planting. The project has other different parts, some of which have been completed, others which are in process, and some – very few – which are yet to be implemented.During a preparatory action, which started in December 2016 and was completed in February 2018, sampling plots were established, but a fire protection plan was also prepared.A seed sampling analysis was done, for which cameras were installed.Insect traps were established to monitor which insects frequent the area, especially for the evaluation of bark beetles which tend to attack cedar trees.Conservation actions go hand-in-hand with the preparatory ones.Apart from planting and sowing, these include the installation of six fire alarm systems, done in 2017. A number of forest roads have been permanently closed to increase the habitat’s total area.Controlled grazing was introduced in some areas to reduce biomass and thereby the risk of fire. This is in process and one of the areas where concrete results have been achieved. It has been calculated and documented that the grazing livestock for the period from May to September can be 1070 goats that do not receive food supplements.Dry weed is also being removed along the main roads, and a new firewall has been constructed while two 90-tonne water tanks have been installed.Anti-erosion measures include the erection of stone walls and gabions, containers filled with earth or stone.In parallel, a well-planned collection of trees is carried out, which are stored in a seed bank.The project also needs measures to improve the resilience of the habitat, all of which have been completed. 10 artificial nests for barn owls have been created, and 20 bat boxes. The installation of insect traps is expected to help fight pests, especially the bark beetles.Last but not least, the forestry department is working hard to raise public awareness on the targeted habitat and dissemination of the results through rural workshops, production of a project film, printing materials and the creation of a website.The total project budget is €1.413.304, of which €968.330, 68.6 per cent of its total eligible budget are co-funded by the EU. The project works towards the sustainable conservation management and protection of the Cedar trees both within its natural range in the valley and in the wider area.More info can be found here May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Entertainment News download Indian Express App IE Online Media Services Pvt Ltd More Related NewsWritten by Bhupinder Brar | Published: February 3 2016 12:09 am File photo of professor Randhir Singh (Source: Screengrab/YouTube) Top News The news broke on social media late on January 31: Professor Randhir Singh the great Delhi University professor of political theory the passionate Marxist revolutionary the man most loved by generations of his students and others whose lives he touched was no more I felt a certain numbness grip me and then after a few minutes a feeling of void took its place One knew he was 94 and ailing and weak One knew therefore that the end would come some day But when it came it still sounded uncanny that it could happen to a towering figure like him So much larger than life he had become a living legend How could his story come to an end Yet there was no denying that when the end came the dream he had sought and worked to realise had despite his lifelong efforts slipped farther away than ever before I have been struggling to make sense of what he will mean to his country people students and colleagues in the days and years to come What will he be from now on beyond an ever-persistent nostalgia What will be the lasting legacy of this once living legend These are not easy questions to answer But some clues can be found in his brief yet engaging autobiographical essay “In Lieu of a Biodata” He wrote it in 1988 just after he retired But he already had half a century of activism behind him: As a student as a communist and finally as a teacher-activist The first part of the essay captures the passage from early years of idealism — fired by revolutionaries like Bhagat Singh and dedicated politics of the left — to the tempering of this idealism by the bitter-sweet experience of Independence and Partition and the setbacks faced by the left He narrates how he came to teaching: “Everything around me including my politics in shambles I sought a new foothold in life I started teaching” But he also believed that “After ‘revolution-making’ teaching perhaps holds the maximum possibilities for a non-alienated life” The rest of the essay is about the vocation of a teacher-activist Randhir Singh chose it fully aware of its potentialities as well as limitations: “What goes on… within the universities and social science institutes of the country is only of marginal importance to the problems and prospects of Indian peoples’ struggle for better future… But this is where we work… And it is axiomatic that we make our efforts where we work or we shall make no effort at all” He described his activism as “Robin-Hooding” seeking to stretch the system to its limits He privileged teaching over the pursuit of conventional academic scholarship He wrote in a deceptive self-mocking style: “I have no research degrees and no publications … no string of scholars working ‘under’ me no fellowships no research projects no study or other academic leaves no ‘seminaring’ national or international nothing not even a visit abroad” But he finds validation of his life as a teacher: “Students have come to my classes from other disciplines and other universities… and they have given me abundant love and affection and thoughtful appreciation…” It is the students who first spoke of ‘a legend in Delhi University’ What stands out the most from the essay is Randhir Singh’s convictions and tenacity He chose not to be disillusioned by politics when mainstream politics including left politics took adverse turns Instead he chose to change the terrain of his politics: The battle of ideas and issues of ideological hegemony And there above all he chose not to accept any of the “cooptive attractions the system has to offer even to a radical teacher” In a way his life symbolised a famous passage from Marx his chosen philosopher and guide: “Men make their own history but they do not make it as they please; they do not make it under self-selected circumstances but under circumstances existing already given and transmitted from the past” That then is his legacy the takeaway from his life so resolutely lived Many of us — of generations younger to him — find that the circumstances of mainstream politics have taken even worse turns in the recent past And many of us — his students and colleagues — are part of what could continue to be a battle of ideas How much we remain a part of this battle the tenacity we show will determine how meaningfully we remember the hero who has just

balance hai aur tumhare paas kya hai Ravi: Mere paas maa hai Sonia Gandhi is a far more astute politician than critics give her credit for Her elastic ability to bounce back from adversity and give it back while on the ropes is a remarkable quality for a politician It was no sudden outpouring of sentiment during an election rally in Thiruvananthapuram on Monday that forced open the floodgates to her heart The Congress president’s "outburst" where she dramatically admitted to her well-documented Italian origins and proclaimed India as the place where she would like to breathe her last was a political masterstroke aimed at blunting the jibes made by Narendra Modi a day earlier Working the electorate with supreme confidence Sonia was making an emotional pitch to tap into Indian cultural mores whichputs total submission on the highest pedestal and lends its practitioner an instant moral infallibility This wasn’t the Congress president at her weakest replying with a stifled sob to the unkind cuts her adversary had inflicted the day before This was Sonia at her strongest calculating that how most Indians ‘feel’ about an outcome may overrule their purely cognitive rationality A file photo of Sonia Gandhi PTI On Sunday Modi had attacked Sonia over the AgustaWestland chopper scam “Madam Soniaji aap ki yeh himmat You are spreading lies… about the helicopter deal” Modi said “Our government has not mentioned your name or your party’s name in the last two years The names have come from a court in Italy” “Do you have anyone you know in Italy Do you have relatives in Italy Have you been to Italy Does anyone know you in Italy Everyone knows who has an Italian connection” a sarcastic Modi had asked the crowd in Thiruvananthapuram Backed into acorner Sonia sought to fight this legal and political challenge withanemotional response She replied that the Prime Minister can “sink to whatever depths he wishes to challenge my integrity but he cannot take the truth away from my commitment and love for India my country” “It is here that I will breathe my last and it is here that my ashes will mingle with those of my loved ones I cannot expect the PM of India to understand these feelings but I know I’m sure you will” she said choking on tears The sole objective of the Modi government is to indulge in “character assassination” of political opponents and “spread lies” she suggested A culture that puts emotion above cognitive reasoning may ignore facts and let sentiment play a major part in persuasion social influence and attitude change As a politician Sonia understands this perhaps better than her peers The UPA government was mired in scams during its decade in power the long shadow of which continues to haunt her but Sonia sought to turn that into an advantage Though an Italian court judgement has put her in the centre of the controversy the Congress president insinuated that those were "all lies" and part of "character assassination" She was importantly also laying the groundwork for charges of political vendetta should the investigative process reach her doorstep in the future As the denouement approached Sonia made a total surrender before the electorate "Yes I was born in Italy I came to India in 1968 as the daughter-in-law of Indira Gandhi I have spent 48 years of my life in India This is my home This is my country For all of my 48 years here the RSS BJP and other parties taunted me to shame me for my birth I was born to proud and honest parents I will never be ashamed of them Yes I have relatives in Italy I have a 93-year-old mother and two sisters” Sharad Pawar who along with PA Sangma and Tariq Anwar was shown the door by Congress for raising the matter of party chief Sonia Gandhi’s Italian origins in 1999 recalls in his book ‘On My Terms-From the Grassroot to the Corridors of Power’ how at a function in Mumbai a university girl had asked him "in a country of one billion people why can’t the Congress find a leader of Indian origin" "The fact that the question was posed by a member of the younger generation indicated that the issue had reached far and deep This means the foreign origin issue (of Sonia Gandhi) would take centre stage in election" Pawar who floated Nationalist Congress party (NCP) the same year says in the book In 2002 Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J Jayalalitha had attacked the Congress president by raising the issue of her foreign origin saying that having her as India’s Prime Minister would be a "disaster" So it isn’tjust RSS and BJP who havetargeted her Italian origin However every time the issue has been raised Sonia has turned it into a political opportunity In 2004 after freshly beating Atal Bihari Vajpayee Sonia had famously obeyed the dictates of her ‘inner voice’ in "renouncing the Prime Minister’s chair" and handing it to Manmohan Singh instead The narrative then was shaped around how Sonia had dipped into the core element of Hindu philosophy and practice of "renunciation" Vajpayee underestimated her political acumen and paid heavily for it Going by her surefooted performance in Kerala on Monday Sonia showed that under her Congress still
