Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Something for the Sweet Tooth Moroccan Meskouta
By Layla DahamouRabat – Internationally, Moroccan cuisine is known for tagines and couscous, as well as a variety of other savory treats, however, Moroccans have a notoriously sweet tooth. To accompany our delicious, refreshing mint tea we prepare a variety of sweet snacks, including Meskouta, or yogurt cake.While we do prepare elaborate and elegant cakes and desserts for special events, Meskouta is a staple in the Moroccan home. Every family prepares it in a slightly different way – some preferring to replace the yogurt with milk or even orange juice – today, I’ll let you into my family secret. It’s a simple recipe, and all you’ll need for measurements is a cup of yogurt. My personal favorite, this is an easy cake to make and once you know the basics you can start adding your own touches. Let’s start with the ingredients: 4 eggs.1 cup of yogurt, vanilla, or banana flavor. (110 grams).1 ½ cup of sugar1 cup of oil3 cups flour16 grams baking powder (2 packets) 8 grams vanilla sugar (1 packet) or half teaspoon vanilla extractNow you’ve got all of your ingredients ready:Preheat the oven, grease, and flour a tube pan or a round cake tin.In a large bowl beat the eggs with an electric mixer, add sugar, oil, vanilla, and yogurt and beat well until thick.Add flour and baking powder and beat with hand beater until the batter is smooth and thick. (you may add more flour).Pour the batter into the cake pan and bake the cake on very medium heat for 45 minutes or less. (don’t open the oven before half an hour).When the cake is ready, let it cool before removing it to a plate. You can put some jam on the surface of the cake and sprinkle almond flakes or, as my family does, some ground coconut as a garnish.When the cake is cool, make a pot of thirst-quenching tea, sit back, and enjoy.
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Blue helmets should be deployed in Somalia General Assembly told
Addressing the high-level segment of the General Assembly, Ali Ahmad Jama Jengeli said the deployment of a force of UN blue helmets would also help “create a secure environment for institution-building and socio-economic development.”The UN-backed African Union Mission to Somalia, known as AMISOM, is currently trying to stabilize Somalia, which has been wracked by protracted war and humanitarian suffering since its last functioning national government was toppled in 1991.But a peace accord between the TFG and the rebel Alliance for the Re-liberation of Somalia (ARS), signed last month in neighbouring Djibouti, calls on the UN to replace AMISOM with its own peacekeeping force, and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has begun contingency planning for such an operation.“We are now in the process of implementation [of the Djibouti Agreement] – hopefully without undue delays,” Mr. Jengeli told the Assembly. “But we are also mindful, after 18 years of conflict, that delays occur… [because] of the tactics of those who have developed vested interests in anarchy and chaos.“It is also important that the leadership, both on the Government side and on the opposition, show resolve and leadership in order for this process to succeed, and succeed it must.”He also called on the international community to take “resolute action” against piracy in the waters off Somalia, which has become a massive problem in recent years. Many ships trying to deliver humanitarian relief supplies have been hijacked or robbed before they can reach their destinations.“These criminal acts of piracy are unacceptable and should be put to an end,” he said, adding that the French Government deserves credit for its support of Somalia on this issue.Mr. Jengeli’s address to the General Debate took place amid mounting concern from UN aid agencies after at least 15,000 residents of the Somali capital, Mogadishu, fled their homes this week because of deadly fighting in the city between the rebels, Government forces and the allied Ethiopian military force. 26 September 2008Somalia urgently needs a fully-fledged United Nations peacekeeping force to restore peace and stability in the war-torn country, the Foreign Minister of its Transitional Federal Government (TFG) told the General Assembly tonight.

The United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) is helping the Government of Afghanistan to organize the country’s first-ever national census, a UN spokesman announced today in Kabul.The effort, slated for completion by mid-2005, will require over 20,000 staff. As part of the initial phase, computer equipment has already been deployed to Afghanistan’s Central Statistic’s Office, while extensive staff training programmes have been launched in areas ranging from information technology to field cartography. Afghanistan has never had a census of its population. The last attempt to conduct one was in 1979 and had to be abandoned due to the country’s deteriorating security situation.Meanwhile, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Lakhdar Brahimi, today participated in a conference on conflict prevention in Sweden, where he also had meetings scheduled with the country’s Foreign Minister, Anna Lindh.Mr. Brahimi, who met on Wednesday with senior Danish Foreign Ministry officials in Copenhagen, is scheduled to travel to Norway tomorrow for high-level meetings in Oslo.
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Former Ohio State forward Deshaun Thomas looking to fulfill NBA dreams
Lantern file photoFormer Ohio State basketball player Deshaun Thomas is looking to make his NBA dreams a reality Thursday night at the 2013 NBA Draft.Thomas announced he was going to forgo his senior season on April 5 and enter the draft after helping guide OSU to an NCAA Tournament run, which ended abruptly in the Elite Eight to Wichita State on March 30 in Los Angeles.Upon declaring for the NBA Draft, Thomas was projected a late first round to early second round pick, only to see his stock fall this summer.The 6-foot-7 forward is projected by NBADraft.net to be taken by Memphis with the 41st overall pick, which would make him the 11th selection in the second round.DraftExpress.com has the Los Angeles Lakers taking Thomas with the 48th pick.Thomas, a forward from Fort Wayne, Ind., posted 773 points last season, which landed him at No. 3 on the Buckeyes all-time scoring list. He averaged a Big Ten-best of 19.8 points per game and collected 5.8 rebounds per contest.A proven scorer, the former Buckeye’s critics are skeptical after his performance at the pre-draft combine. His results were less than impressive, as he recorded the sixth-most body fat among participants at 9.1 percent as well as a 12.94 lane-agility test time that was the slowest among 51 players.Thomas hopes to be the fifth Buckeye in as many years selected in the draft, and the ninth under coach Thad Matta.The 2013 NBA Draft is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. on June 27 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y. The Cleveland Cavaliers hold the first pick in the draft after winning the lottery on May 21.
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm How Clemson And Washington Can Still Make The College Football Playoff
Each week in this space, we examine all the things a certain contending team needs to have happen in order for it to make the College Football Playoff. This week’s edition is a double feature starring the Clemson Tigers and Washington Huskies, each of which fell out of the AP Top 5 after suffering upset losses last week.Current situations: After Clemson and Washington lost to Syracuse and Arizona State, respectively, the two teams’ College Football Playoff odds were dented pretty badly. According to FiveThirtyEight’s prediction model, the Tigers now have just a 29 percent chance of making the playoff (down from 55 percent going into the weekend), and the Huskies are at 24 percent (down from 43 percent). Six teams are currently ahead of the Tigers and Huskies in our CFP probabilities, and Clemson isn’t even the favorite to win its conference anymore. (Miami has slightly higher odds of winning the ACC.) The relatively straightforward paths for both teams to return to the CFP have now run into major complications.What the Tigers and Huskies can do: As always, winning out is paramount to getting into the playoff. If Clemson runs the table — which our model gives a 20 percent chance of happening — it will have a 97 percent probability of making the CFP, a near-lock. The Tigers’ trip to NC State on Nov. 4 is easily their biggest obstacle to that; they win that game in 95 percent of our simulations that have them going to the playoff, while they only win it 49 percent of the time in sims where they don’t make the CFP. (That 46 percentage point difference makes it the highest-leverage game left in Clemson’s season.) It should also be noted that these numbers assume that Clemson’s star QB Kelly Bryant is healthy; he was knocked out of the Syracuse loss but seems to be progressing quickly in his recovery.For Washington, the odds of winning all its remaining games are a bit higher (21 percent), although the Huskies also have a less guaranteed playoff path — only 87 percent CFP odds — even if they do win out. Washington’s most important game comes at Stanford on Nov. 10, a matchup the Huskies win 96 percent of the time in their playoff-bound simulations but only 40 percent of the time in universes where they don’t make the playoff.

Miami17.214.4+2.8 Where they need help: As mentioned above, Clemson doesn’t need much in the way of outside help — as long as the Tigers win, they’re still almost guaranteed to make the playoff. They could benefit slightly from anything that boosts their odds of winning the ACC, however, including losses by NC State and Miami. And any wins by Auburn will automatically help Clemson because of its head-to-head victory against those other Tigers in September.Washington, on the other hand, could use more of an assist from afar. There are two categories for these kinds of games: Some — like Stanford losing to Cal in Week 12 — tend to be entangled with implications about the strength of a team’s own opponents.1For instance, consider a situation in which Team A and Team B are conference rivals. Team B might be less likely to win an unrelated game in a simulation where Team A makes the playoff, because Team B is also likely to be weaker in a universe where Team A beats them head-to-head. (Arizona State beating USC also fits this category, because it makes Washington’s loss to the Sun Devils look less bad.) But the more interesting ones come where the connection isn’t obvious: Georgia Tech beating Georgia, for instance, helps Washington because it hurts an undefeated Bulldogs team that currently sits ahead of the Huskies in our playoff odds. 11Florida State93.562.3+31.2 13South Carolina90.167.3+22.8 12Utah96.782.0+14.7 12Wake Forest def.

USC28.225.6+2.6 One good piece of news for both Clemson and Washington is that, of the six teams ahead of them in the CFP probabilities, all but likely Big 12 winner TCU hail from just two conferences: the Big Ten and SEC. Since the playoff selection committee puts an emphasis on conference championships, some of those teams will by definition see their odds plummet before the Final Four is chosen — we just don’t know which ones yet. So there aren’t many universes where both, say, Alabama and Georgia make the playoff, or both Ohio State and Penn State (to say nothing of Wisconsin).But Washington and Clemson may also find themselves as enemies down the season’s final stretch; with one loss apiece, they could very likely be competing for the same CFP slot. Indeed, Clemson only makes the playoff in 23 percent of the simulations where Washington is in, versus 31 percent of the sims where Washington misses out. (That same split is 18 percent versus 25 percent from Washington’s perspective.) With only four teams standing at the end of the season, every loss counts — a lesson the Tigers and Huskies might have learned the hard way last weekend.Check out our latest college football predictions.
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm WorleyParsonsAusenco JV wins A285 million program management contract for Hancock Coal
WorleyParsons and Ausenco have won a significant contract to manage the delivery of Hancock Coal’s A$7.5 billion Alpha Coal Project in Queensland. WorleyParsons and Ausenco will provide program management services to the project in a 50% joint venture throughout the next four years. Hancock Coal and Hancock Galilee are focused on the Alpha Coal and Kevin’s Corner Projects in the Galilee Basin. The projects include development of two adjacent 30 Mt/y thermal coal mines.In the 1970s, resource exploration commenced in the Galilee Basin, which was considered to be uneconomic due to the lack of associated infrastructure on Australia’s east coast. Now, some 30 years later, with more developed rail and port infrastructure coupled with the global demand for coal fired power, there is an exciting opportunity for this area of regional Queensland. This project includes associated port and rail infrastructure. Each mine has an expected life of 30-plus years.The Alpha Coal and Kevin’s Corner projects moved into the Bankable Feasibility Study (BFS) phase earlier this year. This work is continuing along with the Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) studies currently being undertaken for both projects.In April, the North Queensland Bulk Ports Corporation (NQBP) announced the awarding of Preferred Developer status to Hancock Coal and BHP Billiton for two major expansions at the Port of Abbot Point. The preferred developers were chosen following a competitive process whereby they were able to demonstrate that they offer the best opportunity to optimise the use of the land and achieve the best tonnage throughput. The Queensland Government endorsed the proposals from the two companies to build two new coal terminals at Abbot Point to export an estimated 110 Mt/y of coal.On the July 2 2010, Premier Anna Bligh announced the Declaration by the Coordinator-General of the proposed Hancock rail corridor, an essential milestone towards the Alpha coal mine. The corridor has been declared an Infrastructure Facility of Significance (IFS). The proposed 495 km standard gauge railway will run from Hancock’s Alpha mine to the Port at Abbot Point. The Kevin’s Corner mine will also use the railway. The approval was significant in that it can only be sought by projects which meet the strict definition of an infrastructure facility and also have the potential to contribute to the State through economic growth and job creation.The port and rail infrastructure associated with the Hancock projects will directly contribute to the State’s economy. The development of the Hancock railway from the Alpha and Kevin’s Corner projects to Abbot Point near Bowen is an integral requirement for the development of the mines.In September, Hancock Coal commenced work on a temporary bulk coal sample project at its Alpha coal tenement approximately 60 km northwest of the town of Alpha. The bulk sample project plays an important role in securing the long-term viability of the two proposed future coal projects.Hancock’s Bulk Sample Project will extract up to 450,000 t of thermal coal from the bulk sample pit site near Alpha, with the first stage being 120,000 t. As part of the project, Hancock will wash the coal prior to export.Hancock’s current plan is for the transportation of coal by truck from Alpha to an offsite coal preparation plant near Blackwater for washing, before trucking to an en route rail loading facility for rail transport to the coal terminal near Gladstone. The road transportation component of the project will take approximately four months starting early in 2011. All loads will be covered as an added measure. The transportation by road will only apply to the Bulk Sample Project. Future projects, Alpha Coal and Kevin’s Corner operations will rely on the proposed Alpha to Abbot Point railway line.Paul Mulder, Managing Director of Hancock Coal announced the appointment of Thiess as the Bulk Sample Pit operator, and Wagners as the transport contractor. “Both companies place safety and the environment as key priorities” he said.
Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Asus PQ321Q 4K monitor now available for preorder 3500
When it comes to computers, 4K is the next big jump after 2560×1600, and if you want to get in on the ground floor, Asus is now offering what the company claims is the “world’s first” consumer-grade 4K monitor. That “consumer grade” classification doesn’t mean the monitor isn’t up to 4K snuff, that just means that Asus feels the consumer base at large can afford the display. That affordable price? $3,499.The monitor, the PQ321Q, measures in at 31.5 inches, and offers true 4K resolution, which — if 1920×1080 is too ingrained into your head at this point — is 3840×2160. This, as 4K display manufacturers like to remind us from time to time, is the equivalent of four 1080p monitors combined. The 16:9 aspect ratio packs 140 pixels per inch, and sports two HDMI ports with picture-in-picture capability, as well as a DisplayPort connection. Altogether, the monitor weighs about 28 pounds.Of course, 4K is currently the prime example of early adoption, as it’s quite difficult to find 4K video on just about everything — television shows, video games, internet video, and so on. So, $3,499 — whether or not that’s an affordable price for an average consumer — might be a little too much for a resolution for which you’ll have to actively seek out appropriate content. However, if you have money to spare and like fancy new toys, you could certainly spend more than $3,499 on a 4K monitor, such as Sharp’s $5,500 32-inch monitor.The PQ321Q is available for pre-order now, and can also be found on your regular internet outlets, such as Amazon and Newegg.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram In the style of a proper emperor, as his name suggests, the official launch of makeup maestro Napoleon Perdis’ collection at Melbourne’s Myer last Tuesday was an epic one, as he entered Bourke Street perched on an ex-military tank. Joining the King of Colours’ grand entrance to the Myer store, that blocked traffic and saw thousands of shoppers join the spectacle, was former Miss Universe and face of Myer Jennifer Hawkins. Perdis’ long awaited Myer launch was far from your expected media launch. Between a four course meal that included lipstick and eye shadow-like garnish, Napoleon, dressed in a metallic blue leather suit, celebrated the launch of his collection in Myer like a proper Greek son. To the rhythms of DJ Krazy Kon, Napoleon, his wife Soula-Marie and model Jennifer Hawkins led a Zorba dance around the tables, joined by VIPs and media heavyweights as Greek music filled the retail giant’s Mural Hall in Bourke Street. Born to Sydney immigrant parents and takeaway food store owners John and Liana Perdis, Napoleon Perdis built his $100 million worth cosmetic empire from scratch. Today, his cosmetics are sold in 23 countries, in some of the world’s best retailers, including Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. In Australia, his brand was available only at David Jones where it was the top selling cosmetics brand. In July, the retailer’s exclusive contract with Napoleon Perdis ended, as the makeup king decided not to renew the agreement. That’s when Myer’s management took over – and with Tuesday’s epic launch of the Perdis collection, the rest is history. At the launch, Myer CEO Bernie Brooks said $10 million had been allocated to get the Napoleon brand rolling at Myer, and counters are now in 61 Myer stores.

It’s part of the Park 12 development, luxury apartment homes, retail and restaurant complex.The 22 foot steel shell sculpture tells the history of San Diego in narrative form.“In 1850 , San Diego became a city. Alfonso Horton acquired downtown San Diego in 1867 for $265,” said Jerry Brand, Senior Managing Director of Greystar’s West Coast development. Brand is the man behind the concept.“It’s a native shell. It rolls out of the islands here. I found it on the beach and I gave it to the artist and I asked him in his own creative way to create a shell.”The artist then began to cut in the shell all about the history of San Diego.“In 1969, the Padres become a major league team… and we can now remember in 1998 when the Padres won the National League Championship.”Brand says it’s fitting that the public art sculpture sits across the street from the ballpark, in the courtyard of the newest East Village development.“There are 718 Apartment Homes.

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Happy Birthday Eleventh Doctor Matt Smith
HBO Max Scores Exclusive ‘Doctor Who’ Streaming RightsJo Tro Do Plo Plo No: ‘Doctor Who’ Welcomes Back Familiar Monster Stay on target Happy birthday, Matt Smith—you whimsical hipster, you.Born and raised in Northampton, England, Smith’s dreams of becoming a professional footballer soccer player were dashed by a serious back injury in his late teens.In place of athletics (and with the persistent encouragement of his drama teacher), the schoolboy turned to acting, as you do.Following a reluctant performance as the tenth juror in an adaptation of Twelve Angry Men, Smith joined the National Youth Theater in London, where he honed his craft as Thomas Becket in Murder in the Cathedral and Bassoon in The Master and Margarita.Cheer up, Matt—it’s your birthday! (via BBC)The latter earned him an agent and his first professional gig: 2004’s Fresh Kills at the Royal Court, in which Smith starred while studying drama and creative writing at the University of East Anglia.Long over his youthful (and ironic) belief that acting wasn’t “that cool,” Smith got his television start as Jim Taylor in the 2006-07 adaptations of Philip Pullman’s The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North (alongside Billie Piper).It was his role in BBC political drama Party Animals, though, that piqued interest in the floppy-haired performer, who went on to become the youngest person to play the titular Time Lord in Doctor Who.One of the earliest actors to audition for the role, then-26-year-old Smith wowed executive producer Piers Wenger and incoming boss Steven Moffat (who turned Smith down for the role of John Watson in Sherlock).The Doctor in his emo phase (via BBC)Scrutinized for his age (he was three years younger than Peter Davison at the time of his casting in 1981), Smith was something of a long-shot for the Beeb, which had successfully reignited the classic series only four years earlier.I must admit I was not a fan of the Eleventh Doctor the first time around.Annoyed by his Tenth Doctor tendencies (and definitely not enamored by his giant-chinned face), I felt almost betrayed by the show. How can anyone replace David Tennant, I wondered. How long will I have to watch this gangly manchild molest the TARDIS?From the beginning… (via BBC)I never really came round to Smith’s time on the show (despite my deep love and affection for companion Rory Williams), quietly praising his departure in 2013.Looking back on some of his episodes, however, I am gaining a newfound respect for his portrayal of the alien hero. Smith brought a certain innocence to the role; a charm that invites viewers to come along for the ride.“The Doctor is excited and fascinated by the tiniest of things. By everything. By every single thing,” Smith has said of his Time Lord. “That’s what’s wonderful about him as a character. It’s why children like him, I think. Because he doesn’t dismiss anything. He’s not cynical. He’s open to every single facet of the universe.”…to the end (via BBC)Since saying goodbye to the bowtie-clad, fez-wearing, thrill-seeking Eleventh Doctor, Smith has carved out a career in television, film, and theater, most notably appearing in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut Lost River, Terminator Genisys, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.Since 2016, he has represented Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, in Netflix biographical drama series The Crown.Happy 35th, Matt!

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm Use DISM to fix issues SFC cant
Use DISM to fix issues SFC can’t by Martin Brinkmann on March 16, 2018 in Windows – Last Update: May 22, 2018 – 16 commentsA common suggestion on Windows support forums is to scan the system for file integrity issues using the command sfc /scannow which you may run on the active system but also on external drives.SFC, which stands for System File Checker, is a built-in administrative tool to verify the integrity of operating system files and to repair files that are corrupt, damaged or changed.SFC scans have three possible outcomes:The scan did not find any issues.The scan did find issues and fixed them.The scan did find issues and couldn’t repair them (Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of them).Note: It is recommended that you do a full backup of the Windows system partition before you run DISM. Use free backup solutions such as Macrium Reflect, Veeam Endpoint Backup, or other backup tools.Use DISM if SFC /Scannow fails to correct issuesThe screenshot displayed above shows a result where SFC was unable to correct corrupt files that it detected.SFC may also correct issues but it may not resolve the issue that you tried to correct in first place by running it.DISM comes to the rescue in these situations. Deployment Image Servicing and Management (DISM) is a command line program for Windows that is used for a variety of purposes.It is available in all versions of Windows starting with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008You need to run DISM from an elevated command prompt:Tap on the Windows-key to bring up the start menu.Type cmd.exe and wait for the results to populate.Right-click on the result named cmd.exe and select “run as administrator” to run it with elevated privileges.DISM can be run in dry-mode to reveal corruption without attempting to fix issues found. I recommend that you check the health first to find out if corruption exists before you run repair operations.Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealthThe command checks the image for the corruption flag and returns its findings to you but does not run repair operations.The scan should not take longer than a second or two. Previous operations may have flagged the image as corrupt.Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealthThe command scans for component store corruption but does not correct any issues.The scan takes longer to complete and the findings of the scan are returned in the command prompt window.DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealthThe /RestoreHealth parameter runs a scan for corruption and attempts to repair any issues that it finds automatically.The scan takes longer to complete if corruption is found during the scan of the image. Note that the operation may appear stuck at times but this is no cause for concern as scanning should commence after a moment automatically.If the scan finds corruption, it attempts to correct the issue using Windows Update by default.DISM Advanced commandsTo repair an offline image: Dism /Image:C:\offline /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealthTo use a different repair source: Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth /Source:d:\test\mount\windowsTo prevent the use of Windows Update: /LimitAccess as a parameter.Group PolicyYou can specify a different source using the Group Policy.Do the following for that:Tap on the Windows-key to bring up the start menu.Type gpedit.msc and hit the Enter-key to open the Group Policy Editor.

Category: dcdwjzcfjgwrjcrm PHOTO REPORT Making tamales
There is no Christmas without tamales in Costa Rica. To get into the holiday spirit, Tico Times photographer Alberto Font visited La Flor de Aserrí, a “tamalera” in the town of Aserrí, south of San José, to witness the making of tamales.During the Christmas season, this small factory makes 2,000 tamales a day, allowing it to become one of the largest vendors of tamales in the country. Owner Marcos Solis says he learned the art of making tamales years ago, while working for tamalera La Valverde, one of the first tamaleras in Aserrí.Solis supervises the process of making the tamales from start to finish, and has a staff of around 20 people. The secret for making a great tamal: “A lot of love in what we do, cleanliness in the whole process, and respect among employees”, Solis says. Facebook Comments No related posts.

Sonia Marta Mora, the Public Education Ministry, told the daily La Nación this week that the ministry had chosen to suspend classes at the school for at least one week in order to carry out an investigation at the school.Simultaneously, an investigation by the Costa Rican Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) is being carried out to determine the causes of the accident, including review of videos of the incident to determine whether the student was coerced to step in front of the train.“According to the preliminary investigations we’ve conducted, we can indicate that we have no evidence whatsoever that illustrates the existence of pressures directed against the deceased person at the moment of the event. I’d like to clarify as well that we have to do a retrospective investigation to know whether there was some type of pressure,” OIJ Director Walter Espinoza said at a press conference on Monday.“At the moment, with the people we’ve interviewed, with the people we’ve had access to and with the videos we’ve observed, we can tell you no [pressures have been proved] at that moment. However, we do not discard the posibility because the investigation has to continue,” Espinoza said in a video of the conference released by the OIJ.Watch the full video of the declarations here: Facebook Comments

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T There is a need to identify and properly market the brand image of Sydney and New South Wales in order to regain market share, according to NSW Visitor Economy Taskforce (VET) member John King.Mr King addressed members and attendees at the SKÅL International meeting at the Swissôtel Sydney, while honouring the induction of new members Greg Urand, Rachel Pirie of StayWell Hospitality Group and Rebecca Fleming of Gow-Gates Group.“The brand image of Sydney is extremely weak,” Mr King said.“Three years ago there was a major effort undertaken to develop a brand for Sydney, probably some of the best research and brand strategy that I’d ever seen, unfortunately it was hijacked and all of a sudden became a marketing tagline, and once again the brand image of Sydney became very confused and dissipated.”Mr King said it was important to outline the primary imperatives the Government must undertake to increase the appeal of not only Sydney, but NSW as a whole.“When we asked people what it is that brings them to Sydney and NSW there is great ambivalence in terms of people’s understanding of the main attractions, experiences and key benefits of visiting,” he said.Mr King said research and feedback from around the state revealed only 16 percent of international visitors venture outside of Sydney, and in terms of interstate and intrastate visitation there has been a very steady decline.“We have really failed in the area of regional tourism,” he said.“The spending by visitors to our state impinges on the entire economy of the state.NSW regional tourism is still defining its priorities and developing action plans to combat poor performance. “The fact is that NSW has been performing very poorly in the last ten year’s compared with our competitor destinations, not only in Australia but beyond,” Mr King said.“When you look at our rural and regional areas around the state, many councils deny the fact that tourism is of great importance to them but we have been losing market share in domestic and international tourism over that ten year period.“We need to change the mindset of the state government of NSW.” Developing attractions, capacity and eventually visitor numbers falls upon the shoulders of the individual.“At the end of the day, what’s going to ensure the success of tourism and the capability of being able to double the value of overnight spend is entrepreneurship,” Mr King said.John King was appointed to the NSW Visitor Economy Taskforce in June this year and is chairman of the Australian Tourism Export Council. The VET’s role is to oversee the development of Government plans to double tourism in the state by 2020. John King chairman ATEC and member of VET
