MELBOURNE (AP) — Hotels sold out. An excitement that seems to grow day by day. The potential for hundreds of thousands of visitors, support staff and more.

These are just some of the factors considered in preparations for Artemis I, the first launch of NASA’s Space Launch System rocket, scheduled for August 29. launching from the Space Coast for years – bringing with it a level of excitement to match.

In total, Space Coast officials expect at least 100,000 visitors for the rocket’s first window, which includes opportunities on August 29, September 2 and September 5 (Labor Day). Currently, T-0 on August 29 is set at 8:33 a.m. ET. Pad 39B will be the host.

The rocket is part of NASA’s Artemis program, which aims to put humans back on the moon within this decade. It begins with the Artemis I uncrewed mission and its plan to take an Orion capsule on a four to six week trip to the moon and back. Artemis II will do the same with the astronauts, then Artemis III will put two astronauts on the surface after 2024.

The Space Coast is no stranger to launch day crowds. During the space shuttle era that unfolded in 2011, half a million or more visitors sometimes flooded the area, scooping up hotel rooms and packing up local businesses.

Since then, the crowds have been smaller, but still large. Even at the height of the coronavirus pandemic, thousands still flocked to Brevard County to see the launches.

Some of the recent SpaceX Crew Dragon launches, which take astronauts to the International Space Station from KSC, have attracted between 100,000 and 250,000 visitors, according to Peter Cranis, executive director of the Space Coast Office of Tourism. It wouldn’t be a stretch to expect over 100,000 for Artemis I.

“I think crewed launches and these Artemis launches are going to be of equal interest to people,” Cranis said. “I would definitely expect over 100,000, if not more, to come for this.”

In June, Cranis said, Brevard County had 10,734 hotel rooms and 4,500 vacation rental units. Each unit can obviously accommodate more than one person, but those numbers are unlikely to be affected by spectators coming from, say, Orlando to see the launch without staying overnight.

Speaking about the higher launch rate, Cranis said Artemis is also supporting his office’s efforts to commercialize the Space Coast. KSC and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station hosted 32 launches this year, a rate not seen since the 1960s.

“Our marketing line is that we are the only beach that also serves as a launch pad and now that’s a message we can get out because the frequency is so high,” he said. “Being known for this is something that makes us special among our peers who obviously have beaches to promote, but no space program.”

A simple glance at hotel room listings shows rapidly dwindling supply among those that have not been sold.

The space-themed Courtyard by Marriott Titusville – Kennedy Space Center is one of the newest hotels in the area. Completed this year and open to the public in April, it offers views of the pads of KSC and Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and even has a specially designed rooftop “Space Bar” for viewing the launch.

All rooms in the Courtyard, as well as the Space Bar, are sold out for Artemis I.

“More and more people are discovering the hotel since it opened in April, with a steady increase in room reservations and attendance at the rooftop Space Bar,” said Glen White, director of corporate communications for Delaware. North. The company franchised the Courtyard brand of hotels and financed the project.

“We also anticipate people booking rooms and visiting the Space Bar to experience the excitement of seeing Artemis on the launch pad in the days leading up to launch,” White said.

Delaware North’s main Space Coast operation is the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, which expects to sell out its Artemis daytime offerings.

“We are expecting capacity crowds at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex for the upcoming Artemis launch,” said Therrin Protze, visitor complex chief operating officer. “(The Visitor Complex) will offer special Artemis launch viewing packages that will include some of the closest public viewing opportunities with distinctive experiences like live commentary from space experts and access to certain exhibits and attractions.”

The launch of Artemis I is tied to the complex’s recently opened “Gateway: The Deep Space Launch Complex” exhibit, which focuses on the future of spaceflight. Inside the new exhibit is a scale model of the SLS rocket, a flying Orion capsule similar to that of Artemis I, and other items like a ceiling-mounted SpaceX Falcon Heavy booster.

Crowds gather to view the launch as onlookers aren’t the only visitors expected on the Space Coast. Hundreds of members of the media from around the world have also signed up to cover the liftoff.

KSC’s public affairs team has confirmed that at least 700 media have signed up so far, a figure that dwarfs typical launches and is closer to the crowds seen during the Space Shuttle program. Heather Scott, spokeswoman for the Space Force’s Space Launch Delta 45, said the military branch will also be involved in media management.

“The growing sense of energy and excitement that has gradually developed around Kennedy and among our staff over the past year is tangible,” said Mike Bolger, director of ground exploration systems at KSC. “A sense of anticipation grows every day as we get closer to the launch of this incredible rocket and spacecraft.”

From an employee perspective, launch day passes that can be used to bring personal vehicles — and family and friends, in most cases — are highly sought after.

And it’s not just about watching on launch day: employees who don’t work directly on Artemis have been handling non-critical items for those who are, even going so far as to buy their lunch to save time.

“Our teams are focused on the laser to guide SLS and Orion through the final stages before its maiden flight around the moon, but the excitement across the center is palpable,” said KSC Director Janet Petro. “You can see it in people’s faces, you can hear it in their voices, and when we all stand together with our eyes skyward on launch day, I don’t think there will be a feeling like that. in the world. “

Green watch Invercargill firefighters carry out an aerial drill in Invercargill on Tuesday with the Menzies Building. The firemen’s union is concerned about the construction of taller buildings in the city, they don’t have ladders tall enough to reach the upper levels. The Menzies building will be renovated and extended by an additional level in the future.

The New Zealand Professional Firefighters Union says Invercargill’s tallest ladder at 17m is not tall enough to reach the top of new buildings being constructed in the city.

The Kelvin Hotel is 35 meters tall, and the Langlands Hotel under construction is expected to be about the same height.

Union Southland Secretary Aaron Ramsey said Invercargill had previously had an aerial device with a 30m scale, but had been upgraded to a newer model with a 17m scale at the early 2000s and had not been replaced since.

Invercargill’s senior firefighter Brent Wilson said ‘you’d be lucky’ to get halfway to the new Langlands Hotel or HWR Group headquarters in Invercargill’s CBD using the current device .

“They’re really only useful as a water curtain between two buildings…for a rescue you’d be hard pressed to get someone out of the Grand Hotel with them as you park so far due to the heat from the radiator .”

“You don’t need it [the 30m ladders] often, but when you need it, you really need it.

Aaron Ramsey, senior fire station officer at Invercargill and NZPFU Southland secretary, said firefighters were taking industrial action because they were overworked, underpaid and had to manage trucks and gear that does not meet standards.

Robyn Edie / Stuff

Aaron Ramsey, senior fire station officer at Invercargill and NZPFU Southland secretary, said firefighters were taking industrial action because they were overworked, underpaid and had to manage trucks and gear that does not meet standards.

Fire Emergency Management New Zealand was asked if new construction in the city and firefighters only having access to aerial apparatus was a 17m ladder a concern, and they replied that it was rare that an aerial device helps in the evacuation of people from a burning building.

The FENZ spokesman said that at first, aerial fire apparatus are generally not used to fight fires in high-rise buildings where people live, because firefighters use the measures and the fire safety equipment inside the building, eg sprinkler systems, internal fire fighting water systems, protected entry and egress. ways.

Aerial fire apparatus were mainly used to deliver water from high on a fire, as a viewing platform, to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby buildings or to provide lighting, said the spokesperson.

The NZPFU and Fire and Emergency New Zealand have been in negotiations for over a year, with the NZPFU launching industrial action in June demanding better pay, an end to understaffing, better mental health support and more investments in infrastructure.

FENZ and NZPFU resumed collective bargaining in July, but the union announced negotiations had broken down and all firefighters would strike for one hour on August 19 and 26.

Following the strike announcement, FENZ Deputy National Commander Brendan Nally said FENZ had made a substantial new pay offer which would see base salaries for all firefighters increase between 8% and 19% over the course of of the next two years.

The union says the devices are aging rapidly as they were not being replaced and the number of firefighters at Invercargill had remained stagnant.

FENZ District Manager Julian Tohiariki said he was confident Invercargill’s fleet was safe and suitable, with frontline devices used by older career firefighters “well within guidelines” between 12 and 14 years old.

Invercargill had a Type 4 aerial device with a 17m ladder, with the next nearest 30m ladder located in Dunedin, although it was ‘very rare’ to have to ask for it, he said declared.

Nationally, a project was underway for FENZ to procure four new replacement aircraft, with FENZ also looking to revise its aircraft strategy, he said.

There were 54 stations at Invercargill and Kingswell stations, he said, and although that number had not increased in ten years, it was a “good enough number for Invercargill”.

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — An outbreak of Legionnaires’ disease in California’s wine country has caused one death and nearly a dozen hospitalizations since mid-July, and public health officials have found a possible source of the bacteria that causes the disease, authorities said Wednesday.

High levels of Legionella bacteria were found in a water sample taken from a cooling tower at the Embassy Suites Napa Valley, although none of those who were ill had visited or stayed at the hotel, according to a release from Napa County.

“The cooling tower has since been taken offline, mitigating any continued risk to public health,” the statement said.


County and state public health investigators worked with hotel staff to “address the source of exposure,” but “we must continue to investigate other cooling towers and sources of water in the hatching area, as it is common to find more than one source”. County health officer Dr. Karen Relucio said in the statement.

Legionnaires’ disease is a type of pneumonia caused by bacteria that thrives in hot water. He was named for the outbreak where he was first identified, at a 1976 American Legion convention in Philadelphia.

People can contract Legionnaires’ disease when they breathe in water vapor containing the bacteria.

“Outbreaks are typically associated with buildings or structures that have complex water systems, such as hotels and resorts, long-term care facilities, hospitals, and cruise ships,” according to the Centers. for Disease Control and Prevention of the United States. “The most likely sources of include water used for showers, hot tubs, decorative fountains and cooling towers.”

The disease is not contagious and can be treated with antibiotics, but can be dangerous for some people, such as those with pre-existing conditions. Symptoms include muscle aches, fever and chills.

A dozen Napa County residents have been hospitalized with the disease since July 11. Three remain hospitalized and one person has died, the county said.

That person was over 50 and had “risk factors for serious illness,” the county said.

“Although Legionnaires’ disease is a rare infection, it reminds us that the bacteria that cause it are common in nature and can be found in man-made water systems” and managers of these systems should take steps to prevent the growth and spread of the bacteria, Relucio said.

There were about 10,000 reported cases of Legionnaires’ disease in the United States each year, but the disease is likely underdiagnosed and the actual annual figure could be much higher, according to the CDC.

1305 2nd Street after the completion of a comprehensive building restoration

Venture capital firm leases redeveloped Santa Monica building by King’s Arch and Wilshire Skyline

Undertaking such a complex building rehabilitation was a labor of love. Surprises were found at every turn. Some were setbacks while others confirmed that we were on the right track.

—Richard Shamooilian

SANTA MONICA, CALIFORNIA, USA, Aug. 1, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Beverly Hills-based King’s Arch and Wilshire Skyline have reached an agreement with venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz (known as ” a16z”) to occupy the entire building at 1305 2nd Street.

Located on the corner of 2nd and Arizona, just off the 3rd Street Promenade and overlooking the Pacific Ocean, this award-winning historic landmark was built in 1914 as one of the city’s first hotels. After years of painstaking and passionate restoration, the Hart Hotel has embarked on a new life as one of downtown Santa Monica’s premier office buildings. This nearly 30,000 square foot U-shaped structure was repositioned in 2021 and features ocean-view outdoor space on each floor, private rooftop terrace, glass penthouse , a prominent entrance courtyard, gated parking, and distinctive features including historic ghost signs.

The property has worked closely with local architects KFA to revive and enhance the buff-colored and gold-speckled brick edifice. The unique design components have all been meticulously restored to Department of the Interior historic preservation standards, while the structure and all systems have been brought up to Class A caliber. Courted by owners’ representatives from Groundsource and Madison Partners as well as representatives of Douglas Elliman tenants, this transaction further demonstrates the demand for quality office space in Silicon Beach.

According to King’s Arch Director Richard Shamooilian, “Undertaking such a complex building rehabilitation was a labor of love. Surprises were found at every turn. Some were setbacks while others confirmed that we were on the right track. Early on, we discovered a collection of century-old lamps behind a wall in the former speakeasy in the basement! Thrills like this and attracting bands like a16z make all the hard work worthwhile. We would like to thank the various stakeholders who contributed to its realization. Special thanks to the City of Santa Monica for their support and absolute professionalism.

And now, Words and their stories, from VOA Learn English.

In this program, we explore words and phrases in English. We give you examples and sometimes usage notes.

Today we are talking about expressions related to punctuality. To help us plan our time, we use tools, namely clocks and watches.

If something happens at the exact same time every day, that’s predictable. When an event is very regular, we can say that we could “regulate our watch by it”.

And that’s our first expression: set your watch to something.

You might hear someone use it like this:

Regina leaves her house to go to work every weekday at exactly 7 a.m. – never a minute earlier or later. You can set your watch by it.

In this example, you could say that Regina is a “creature of habit.” This means she sticks to her plan no matter what. And that’s why you can set your watch by it.

This expression can also describe someone who is always on time. They are reliable and punctual – as in this example.

B.: Don’t worry. If John said he will be here, then he will be here. He is always on time. You could set your watch by it.

Now let’s talk about clocks: devices that tell the time.

Some events or activities go smoothly and on time. And some systems work without problems. If everything goes according to plan, we can say that it “works like clockwork”.

Clockwork is a system of wheels and springs inside mechanical clocks. The term means something that is done with care, that works well and on time.

Once I ran a two-week teacher training course. It took a lot of work to organize it and there were “many moving parts” or things that needed to be done. But I’m happy to say that the training went like clockwork!

Here’s another way of saying it: the training went “without a hitch”. Here, “coupling” is a problem.

Running like clockwork means operating with extreme regularity. Some word experts say that the use of clockwork to describe other areas of our lives dates back to at least the late 17th century.

Now listen to this example:

For a large corporate event, we rented a conference room in a large hotel. But we only had room until 3pm and we had a lot of issues to deal with. Fortunately, the event went like clockwork. We did all our work and we still had time to have a little fun!

The phrase “to run like a clock” can also mean to operate, manage, control or direct something in a very fluid way, efficient, reliably. Used this way, a noun or pronoun is used between “running” and “like clockwork”.

Here are some examples:

When the new director took office, he wanted to run office like a clock. So he forced the workers to have lunch at fixed times every day.

When I lived in Seattle, I ran a children’s theater festival like a clock. All performances were on time and everyone had a blast!

Years ago in Washington, DC, I ran a kids’ summer camp like clockwork. All activities were on time and all the kids had a great time.

And that’s all the time we have for Words and their stories. But we’ll be back at the same time next week because this show is running like clockwork. You can set your clock by it!

Until next time… I’m Anna Matteo.

The best retreats that come with wilderness as standard, from Tuscany to Scotland https://hotelduomo.net/the-best-retreats-that-come-with-wilderness-as-standard-from-tuscany-to-scotland/ Fri, 29 Jul 2022 06:46:18 +0000 https://hotelduomo.net/the-best-retreats-that-come-with-wilderness-as-standard-from-tuscany-to-scotland/ High on a hill in Tuscany, the hamlet of Borgo Pignano has a very exalted form of self-sufficiency.

High on a hill in Tuscany, the hamlet of Borgo Pignano has a very exalted form of self-sufficiency.

Not only does the wine come from its own vineyards, but its rare breed pigs are free to roam its woods before becoming charcuterie. At breakfast, the honeycomb that drips into small glass bowls has traveled a few hundred meters from the hives on the estate. And the wheat that grows in the fields below – the ancient low-gluten grain of Semolato Cappelli – ends up on the table in the form of bread and pasta.

Not bad considering the owner of it all is a boy from Cardiff.

Sarah Turner visits Borgo Pignano, a luxury country retreat in Tuscany “that feels both utterly modern and yet remarkably Renaissance”. Above is the estate’s “show-stopper” pool, which was built from a former quarry

Billionaire Michael Moritz was an early investor in companies such as Google and Yahoo. He has since turned to philanthropy, and he and his wife, novelist and sculptor Harriet Heyman, bought Borgo Pignano in 2000 when it was just a pile of dilapidated buildings surrounded by depleted farmland. It took more than ten years before it was ready for the first guests.

Today, with cleverly hidden solar panels and rainwater catchments, it’s an estate that feels both thoroughly modern and still remarkably Renaissance.

The views are immense and so is the vision – it’s more than agricultural tourism (called agrotourism), it’s about regenerating an entire region.

Given the feeling of plenty, room prices aren’t bad at all, starting at €300 a night (around £250) including breakfast.

Look down from the top of the hill and, in good weather, the Mediterranean can be seen in the distance.

There is a spectacular swimming pool which was built from an old quarry – this part of Tuscany is famous for its limestone, particularly the alabaster which fills the shops in the equally historic hill town of Volterra neighbor.

There is also another swimming pool for children, next to meticulously restored buildings, including a 12th century castle (castello), a chapel and a priest’s house.

With views over the vast, wooded nature reserve of Castelvecchio, it has the kind of landscape – rolling green hills dotted with estates and cypress alleys – that Leonardo da Vinci used as a backdrop for his paintings.

Pisa is an hour away by car, but once here you can borrow bikes to explore the hilltop towns or stroll through waterfalls, vineyards and orchards.

The ground floor of the castello opens up to a series of restaurants as well as lounges with plush sofas and chess sets. Courtyards and patio doors lead to the gardens. Follow the stairs and you will find pool tables and bookcases.

Among the rooms and suites, Il Poeta may seem small but has a two-story bathroom with an armchair at the top. In one of the hallways, the whimsical Marchesa has a secret entrance and an additional single bedroom. Mine, the Sala Musica, like the other rooms in the main building, has no television, although it does have a grand piano in one corner. I fell asleep to the sound of owls.

Stefano Cavallini, who ran the Michelin-starred kitchen at the Halcyon Hotel in London, taught us our guests how to make ravioli with garden-picked sage and local ricotta. Wood-fired pizza is served outdoors, fish is landed in nearby ports and everything else comes from the estate or local farms.

In a courtyard, Lisabetta makes potions from herbs and wildflowers growing on the estate. Some end up as soaps and shampoos in the rooms, others end up in the garden cocktail bar surrounded by lavender, butterflies and industrious bees. I got excited when I grew a handful of beans and strawberries on my roof during lockdown. At Borgo Pignano, it may be the same alchemy of earth, sun, rain and weather, but on a much, much larger scale.

“Across the estate there are a handful of villas – each one has its own pools,” Sarah reveals.  Above, a bedroom at Villa La Lavandaia in Borgo Pignano

Another set of buildings houses a collection of classic Italian cars and scooters – not Ferraris and Lamborghinis, but beautifully restored bubble cars and Vespa scooters.

There is an artists’ studio, which houses the budding Raphaels of the Royal Drawing School to work and teach guests. You can also ride horses, including a Shetland pony for the kids.

The first Borgo wines were produced in 2019 from ciliegiolo and abrusco nero grapes – “Like unknown actors in a star family”, says Raffaele, who oversees everything.

There’s also the estate’s orta, a market garden filled with tomatoes, beans, onions and edible flowers. It’s not there to be scenic, although it certainly is, but to produce food in the most sustainable way, with swales to collect rainwater and planting systems to naturally weed out. pests, but also tractor ruts and fences to keep rabbits away.

Across the estate, there are a handful of villas — each has their own pools — and a small spa where treatments use ingredients from the estate. But there’s nothing more relaxing than sitting out on the shaded terrace with a chilled bottle of wine.

In the gardens there are people playing chess, honeymooners, extended families and beginners.

If there’s a common theme between them, it’s that they look like people who prefer nature and long meals to the latest high-tech gadgets in the rooms – although the estate’s wi-fi is quite strong to penetrate foot-thick walls in an invisible place. but resolutely modern way.

MORE BETTER RETREATS

Estate retreats are all the rage, popping up across the globe, from Blackberry Farm in Tennessee to Domaine des Etangs near Massignac in southwestern France.

In the UK, two other tech guys, Michael and Xochi Birch, who founded the first social networking site Bebo in 2005, are transforming the village of Woolsery in Devon with their 90-acre farm which already supplies the village pub in products while a 24-room mansion hotel will be ready in 2024 (woolsery.com).

Just like with Borgo Pignano, great visions take time. But if you’re feeling a bit impatient for Britain’s new kind of stay, head to The Newt in Somerset.

It’s the UK sibling of the Babylonstoren Wine Estate in South Africa, which rather than wine incorporates cider orchards across its 800 acres, some shaped into a maze that incorporates all of Britain’s apple varieties.

A 30-acre farm is integral, with a color wheel of carrots, beets and other heirloom vegetables fueling both the laid-back Garden Cafe and the serious Botanical Rooms restaurant.

Accommodation is a far cry from Cold Comfort Farm, with 23 bedrooms in the main house and more in the farmyard which opened last year. Double rooms with breakfast cost from £575 per night (thenewtinsomerset.com).

Tim Cordon, Regional Senior Vice President, Middle East and Africa at Radisson Hotel Group, said: “2022 has been historic for Radisson Hotel Group so far. Although we have long viewed Africa as a key growth region, it has been incredibly exciting to enter new markets for the first time. In doing so, we have cemented our position as one of the leading operators on the African continent, with the most diversified portfolio in over 30 countries.

“Radisson Hotel Group’s growth in existing markets and entry into new markets in Africa is an essential part of our global expansion strategy. Having built a solid foundation with our portfolio of city hotels, we are proud to increase the diversity of our branded offerings in Africa. The acceleration of our openings over the last 12 to 18 months highlights the relevance of our brands in today’s market, the trust that our partners place in the Group and the quality of our pipeline as a market leader. The first half of 2022 saw openings exceed signings, showing a positive trend in the materialization of our pipeline and successful execution of our conversion strategy said Ramsay Rankoussi, Vice President, Development, Africa and Turkey at Radisson Hotel Group.

  • New England has one of the top 5 hotels in the world, according to Travel + Leisure

A Boston hotel steeped in musical history has set up luxury trailers for the ultimate rock star experience.

The Verb Hotel near Fenway Park, recently named one of Boston’s Top 10 Hotels by Travel + Leisure magazine, will debut Backstage at the Verb Hotel in September, a fleet of 10 custom-designed trailers that make guests feel like A-listers.

The trailers were created by Boston-based development group Samuels & Associates, in partnership with Spot On Ventures, LLC.

“We wanted to expand on the nostalgia of travel and the music industry while delivering a modern interpretation – a one-of-a-kind urban trailer park,” Steve Samuels, founder and president of Samuels & Associates, said in a statement. .

The trailers are equipped with heating and cooling systems and equipped with patios and luxury private bathrooms, complete with rain showers. They feature rare works of art and musical ephemera.

“We were delighted to work with Planeta Design Group to outfit each trailer with the custom amenities offered to the rock star VIP – from a king size bed to a custom minibar, Nespresso machine, Bose soundbar, gallery and a 43′ 4K TV,” Robin Brown, Founder and Director of Spot on Ventures, said in a statement. “Chrome hardware, stitching and exterior details that shine like the handlebars of a chopper evoke life on No detail has been overlooked to provide guests with a personalized and accessible VIP experience from the moment they are escorted backstage.

Backstage guests also have access to the hotel’s amenities, from its heated outdoor pool to its extensive vinyl library to Hojoko, the hotel’s restaurant.

“The connection between car travel and motels is inherent in The Verb Hotel; the original mid-century double-decker motorhome already had a rich history of hosting touring musicians before we breathed new life into the property in 2015,” said Samuels. “As we seek to grow, we have taken inspiration from our popular Flxible Clipper bus – a landmark at the hotel, while drawing inspiration from the legacy of touring musicians and their fans traveling the road to see them.
