Antigua and Barbuda demonstrates strong tourism growth in 2018

It is incredibly encouraging for the tourism industry, and I would like to congratulate the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority.”

— Minister of Tourism & Investment, Hon. Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez

ST. JOHN'S, ANTIGUA AND BARBUDA, July 16, 2018 / — Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Officials have reported that, for the first time in over fifteen years, Antigua and Barbuda has shown the strongest overall visitor arrivals by air from January to June (148,139), with significant increases in the key source markets for the destination: US, Canada, UK and Caribbean. This represents an overall +7% increase from 2017. The closest the destination previously came to these figures was in 2008 (146,935).

In particular, the month of June demonstrated significant increases: Canada has the greatest year-over-year increase with over 170%, followed by the US (14.35%), Caribbean (8.69%) and UK (8.27%). In addition, the destination is seeing an average 11.57% increase in sea arrivals (502,527 from January – May), and an average 8.6% growth in occupancy rates.

This growth is set to continue with significant increased airlift from North America in the Fall 2018, the opening of the destination’s newest 5-star resort and spa, Hodges Bay, in October 2018 as well as a full cruise schedule.
“We are excited by this positive momentum in growth of arrivals, both by cruise and air. It is incredibly encouraging for the tourism industry, and I would like to congratulate the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, the private sector, stakeholders and all our tourism partners on helping us reach these positive results for the first 6 months of the year. We will not rest on our laurels, and are striving for better. We will continue to invest in infrastructure and service and raise awareness of Antigua and Barbuda, to ensure we see consistent growth in arrivals,” said the Minister of Tourism and Investment, Honorable Charles ‘Max’ Fernandez.

“The first half of 2018 has shown incredible improvement, especially in our key source markets. We look forward to relentlessly working towards attracting new and returning visitors, improving our on-island tourism products as well as increasing access through our award-winning airport and port. We are doubling our airlift out of Miami, introducing new direct service out of New York and Canada, and welcoming new cruise ships to an already busy schedule. Combined with our aggressive marketing strategies, we are confident that we will continue to see remarkable growth for the second half of the year,” said the CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin C. James.

In 2017, the islands reached a tourism milestone in welcoming over one million air and sea visitors. The arrival and occupancy figures for the first half of the year are positive indicators that Antigua and Barbuda is set for another record year in tourism.

Konstantin Balakiryan: USA can become the flagship in extinguishing forest fires on the Planet.

Mankind has never before possessed such a powerful means as the hydrogen capsules for combating this terribly destructive natural cataclysm.

PHOENIX, ARIZONA, USA, July 17, 2018 / — Well, we waited. And another season of wildfires has come in the USA.
The forests are blazing now in parts of California, Colorado, North Carolina, Oregon, and more – with homes and the lives of tens of thousands of people are threatened.
Maybe now, those who are responsible for fire safety in the country will consider there could be another powerful tool to enhance their dedicated efforts with taming wild fires.
Perhaps the idea of using hydrogen capsules was previously passed over because they had doubts:

1. Doubts that explosions can effectively extinguish a flame?
Scientists all over the world have conducted hundreds of experiments that confirmed the highest effectiveness of a fire extinguishing explosion.
Look at just three of the publications verifying this:
– Using Explosives to Put Out Wildfires Is Actually a Great Idea – Gizmodo.
– This flame-suppressing dodgeball puts out fires instantly
– Fighting fire with explosives

2.Doubts that hydrogen has explosive capacity?
This is a truth that does not require proof! It is well known, hydrogen in a proper mixture with oxygen (explosive gas) has a monstrous explosion force.
Well-known comparative tables confirm that hydrogen is 8-9 times more explosive than such gases as methane, butane and propane.

3. Doubts that when hydrogen is burned, water is formed?
This is more than 250 years ago proved the great English scientist Henry Cavendish. He wrote about it; "Hydrogen in a mixture with hot air reactors with the explosion and with the formation of water”. Resulting in a clean explosion without adding more pollutants into the atmosphere.

4. Doubts that an explosion of calculated strength will be able to knock down trees?
Explosion will not only knock down trees, but also significantly reduce
volume of combustible materials. In addition, the blast wave will raise up soil and dust, the shock will interrept the access of oxygen and then become an excellent fireproof cover.
5. Doubts that hydrogen capsules will not allow the use of long-practiced, routine extinguishing agents wild fires?
On the contrary, this can be used in conjunction with any other methods. For example, after the volley of hydrogen capsules, it is possible chemical reagents can be applied via a second volly of capsules or with other traditional methods.

Let's not allow doubts to cloud the potential for new techniques and tools in the firefighting arsenal, let's get working on this!
More control over wildfires is necessary to save human lives, homes, property, and "lungs" of the Planet.

*The role IBM unwittingly played in the deaths of millions of Jews during the Holocaust.
*The United States President that was gay. Who he was and how do we know?

*The Presidential hopeful that asked John Wayne to be his running mate. And the Duke's curious response.
*The Mother of Rock and Roll. Yes, this musical genre was started by a women. Move over Chuck Berry.
*That Abner Doubleday had nothing to do with inventing Baseball. There's a document that proves it.

Memo to Sri Lanka Office of Missing Persons (OMP) By Tamil Mothers of Disappeared About Why They Lack Confidence In OMP

We search our loved ones- including several babies, girls and children – whom we personally handed over to Sri Lankan forces at the end of war in May 2019

JAFFNA , SRI LANKA, July 16, 2018 / —

Memorandum to the Office of Missing Persons (OMP) by Tamil Mothers of the Disappeared about why we lack confidence in OMP

We are Tamil mothers of the disappeared, who desperately searching well-over eighteen (18) thousand of our daughters, sons and husbands who disappeared since 1983 in Tamil areas. In addition, we also search thousands of our loved ones – including several babies, girls and children – whom we personally handed-over to the Sri Lankan Security forces at the end of the war in May 2019.

We are continuously searching our loved ones, despite numerous challenges, including abuse by the Sri Lankan Security forces and Military Intelligence. We sold our houses, jewels and other properties and also borrowed money to pay “Security Forces Middlemen” who promised to get our loved ones back. But all our efforts failed and we were cheated. Several of our Mothers have died as a result of stress and sorrow, many of them due to heart attack.

Out of desperation to bring attention to our disappeared loved ones, we continuously held peaceful protests and hunger strikes for the last one and a half years in Tamil areas, despite intimidation and attacks by the Security forces and Military Intelligence. Still we continue our protests.

We continue to live with the pain of not knowing what happened to our daughters, sons and husbands. Every day we suffer imagining what would have happened to them.

• Are they alive?
• Are our daughters get raped?
• Are they tortured?

We have difficulty eating, sleeping or concentrating and continuously fall sick.

We want to bring to your attention that International law recognizes that the families of the missing have the “Right to Know the Truth” with respect to the fate of their loved ones. On December 15, 2015, Sri Lanka signed the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance. Article 21 of the convention recognizes the continued victimization of the families of those who have disappeared and grants these victims the “right to know the truth regarding the circumstances…and the fate of the disappeared person[s].”

Also, any continued failure of the Sri Lankan government to provide such concrete information prolongs the suffering of the families of the missing; constitutes an ongoing violation of their human rights, and constitutes an ongoing failure by Sri Lanka to fulfill its obligations under international law as well as its obligations under Human Rights Council Resolution 30/1 and 34/1 which Sri Lanka voluntarily co-sponsored.


1) When the new Government came to power in January 2015, we had hope that the new Government will find our loved ones or give us the status of what happened to them.

2) We met Hon. President Mithripala Srisena thrice. At the first meeting itself, he had assured us that he will find an immediate solution to our demands. He had revealed that he will give an order at the Security Council Meeting to be held on the following day, to release the list of those surrendered at the end of the war in May 2009. But his promise had not been translated into action. When an executive President in this country is not in a position to keep a promise, how can we expect OMP, which was created by the Government to mete out justice? Can the OMP at-least get the list of those surrendered at the end of the war in May 2009 and disappeared?

3) Furthermore, Hon. Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe, came to Jaffna for one of our major festivals (Thai Pongal) and said in a public meeting on January 15, 2016 that “Those who surrendered to the Sri Lankan Security forces at the end of the war in May 2009 are no longer alive”. These Tamils, including several babies, girls and children voluntarily placed themselves in the hands of the security forces at the end of the conflict in reliance on assurances that they would be safe.

But, the Prime Minister refused to give any clarification about his statement, including who is responsible for the killings, manner in which they were killed and where the dead bodies are. How do you expect us to believe the OMP, which was established by this Government, when its own Prime Minister is refusing to give clarification of a public statement he made about the deaths of the Tamil disappeared? Can OMP get the clarification from the Prime Minister?

4) The Government had also made changes in the OMP bill (Sec.11a) to curtail even its least power, due to the intervention of a Sinhala political party. This happened even without taking into consideration the recommendations of the consultation Task force on Reconciliation mechanism.

5) How do you expect OMP to bring justice to us, when OMP act section13 (2) mentions that the findings of the OMP could not be used in any civil or criminal cases for seeking justice?

6) There is no transparency adopted in the selection of the Commissioners for the OMP. Selections were made by the Constitutional Council in which Sinhala Politicians are also members, who repeatedly said that they will not allow any members of the Security force to face justice. Can OMP guarantee that alleged perpetrators will be brought to justice?

7) Out of the seven Commissioners is a former senior Security force officer. How can we go and seek justice from him? Can OMP take steps to remove him as its Commissioner?

8) Repeated requests to have some OMP Commissioners from the UN and other international experts were rejected. How do you expect us to have confidence in OMP, given the long and failed history of Sri Lankan Government appointed Commissions to deal with abuses against Tamils? Can OMP include UN and other International experts as Commissioners?

We urge you to rectify our above mentioned concerns and we will give our whole hearted support to you.

After all, this is about the disappearance of our daughters, sons and husbands.

Ayurvedic Practitioner Ceci Kramer to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

CENTENNIAL, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, July 16, 2018 / — Wellness is not the absence of disease; it’s a state of balance. But when it comes to prevention and optimizing our health, traditional healthcare doesn’t offer many tools. What are the aspects of our lifestyle, our diet that contribute to a lack of balance. What can we change naturally to restore balance?

Ceci Kramer is an advanced Ayurvedic practitioner. Ayurveda is a traditional East Indian medicine, estimated to be over 5,000 years old, transmitted through the oral tradition for even longer than that.

“Where Western medicine treats illness and symptoms, Ayurvedic practices prevent you from getting sick in the first place,” says Kramer.

Ayurveda is one of the three sister sciences: Yoga, the physical and spiritual aspect; Jyotisha, the Indian form of astrology; Ayurveda is the medicinal part of the sister sciences which they use to base their theory of health on. Ayruveda drawing on different herbs to create different medicines for different ailments or problems.

“It's more holistic and more preventative,” says Kramer. “I'm not a person who thinks Ayurveda is the end-all, be-all, cure-all. For cancer or serious chronic illnesses like cancer, Ayurveda may not be able to cure you, but for someone who doesn't have cancer yet but may have a family history of cancer or other high-risk factors, there are certainly tools Ayurveda can employ to prevent you from going down that path.”

Kramer says helping people through Ayurveda is part of who she is.

“I've had a lot of my own health struggles, specifically things that were very difficult for Western medicine to diagnose and treat, which is often the case with people who come to Ayurveda: they can't find answers in Western medicine,” says Kramer.

The most common form of treatment would be probably herbal formulations to help a person's immune system fight illness without side effects or chemicals. These formulations can be teas, tinctures, oils, and herbal powder formulas. By focusing on lifestyle, diet and the herbal medications, Ceci can offer a well-rounded treatment plan for anyone looking to change the way they're living and re-balance themselves.

According to Kramer, integrating the western and eastern traditions of medicine would be the ideal and there are more and more physicians who see the validity of preventative medicine and the value of what Ayurveda has to offer.

“People often say, ‘That's the most time anyone has spent listening to me about my health concerns,” says Kramer. They cry. They can't believe that somebody actually cares. When you see that gratitude, it definitely fuels the fire of wanting to continue offering this to people. It's powerful.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Ceci Kramer in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on July 18th at 3pm EDT and with Jim Masters on July 25th at 3pm EDT.

James Irvine II was good friends with world renowned actress Madam Helena Modjeska who lived in Silverado Canyon here in Orange County, California. James Irvine II named his daughter Kathryn Helena Irvine after her.

After the couple made their grand entrance to the sound of trumpets, they danced their first dance to the song “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri. The dinner menu was a tribute to the success of the Irvine Ranch which was the largest agricultural enterprises in the United States and according to an article in the 1910 Los Angeles Times, “one of the greatest cultivated farms in the world.” Some of the items were selected because they were once grown or raised on the Irvine Ranch.

After dinner, everyone enjoyed the handmade cake that stood 50 inches tall and weighed over 150 pounds. Lovingly wrapped in white frosting that had handmade 30 fondant bows and sugar flowers the cake was accented with Swarovski Crystals and edible 18 Karat Gold. The fifth layer of the cake had insignias of Susan and James initials representing their union in marriage. Accenting the cake was cascading fresh flowers to celebrate this beautiful day.

Guests enjoyed dancing to a live ten-person orchestra to the tunes from the 1930’s to the current pop hits until Susan and James left the party. They walked under a crowd of guests lined up on each side of the walkway holding large sparklers that lit up the night – holding them up like swords – while the couple ran underneath to the awaiting 1950 White Rolls Royce Bentley to whisk them away for an evening of romance.
