Watch epic video of a giraffe escaping a pride of hungry lions

first_img Share Travelweek Group Posted by Tuesday, February 5, 2019 Tags: Animals, Safaricenter_img Watch epic video of a giraffe escaping a pride of hungry lions KLASERIE GAME RESERVE — It’s hard not to root for the underdog, especially when they’re outnumbered by a pride of lions.In a captivating video filmed at South Africa’s Klaserie Game Reserve and shot by safari guide Francois Pienaar, a gentle giraffe is seen trying to fight off a group of the hungry and relentless predators. One particularly determined lion hangs off the giraffe’s back, paws and teeth digging mercilessly into its neck, while several other lions hold on to the giraffe’s back legs.According to Pienaar, who spoke with LatestSightings.com, the safari group set out on an early morning game drive when they came across a pride of sleeping lions. “My guests and I were watching them sleep, never expecting I was about to see the best sighting in my guiding career,” she said.After waking from their nap, the pride started moving and soon spotted the “very old giraffe bull”. The group watched the lions stalk the giraffe; after about 20 minutes, the pride made their move.More news:  Visit Orlando unveils new travel trade tools & agent perksThe battle, said Pienaar, lasted five exhausting hours.

Costa Rican students get the surprise of a lifetime a trip to

first_img“Poverty is no excuse,” said Sandra Cauffman. “If you work hard, you are going far. That, I promise you.”Your standard motivational speech from a highly successful Costa Rican to a group of her younger compatriots? Hardly. Cauffman — a deputy project manager for NASA who co-directed the MAVEN mission to Mars and now directs the GOES-R satellite program — was speaking via Skype from her offices at NASA to six teenagers sitting in a conference room in Guachipelín, Escazú.Those six teenagers had just received some big news. More than one face was streaked with tears. A boy had his head in his hands, gobsmacked. Elián can’t believe it; Diana wipes away a tear. Katherine Stanley/The Tico TimesCauffman had just told the high-school students that they are going to make their first trip outside the country in October: to Cape Canaveral, Florida, where they will be Cauffman’s VIP guests at the launch of the new GOES meteorological satellite.Like Cauffman, who was raised by a single mother in the southern San José district of Hatillo, the six winners of this trip are from some of San Jose’s toughest neighborhoods. Daniel Aguilar, Diana Araya, Celinne Cordero, Valeria Salazar, Elián Torres and José Andrá Vega are all beneficiaries of the Monge Foundation. The organization is the nonprofit arm of Grupo Monge, the company whose brands include the home appliance chain Importadora Monge and the electronics chain Play.Through the foundation’s SOY CAMBIO (“I AM CHANGE”) program, students receive intensive support to help them achieve their academic and professional goals, and training in subjects including English and technology.SOY CAMBIO, whose formal name is the Program of Student Leadership and Employability, works with motivated, low-income students between 15 and 19 years old in Costa Rica and Nicaragua, with plans to expand to Guatemala and Honduras.Read more: Meet Sandra Cauffman, the Tica co-directing NASA’s current mission to MarsTo take advantage of Cauffman’s idea of bringing young Costa Ricans to the satellite launch, the foundation created a contest, “¿Qué tan lunático sos?” and told students they were competing for a chance to attend an event with former astronauts in San José later this week. What neither the selected students nor their parents, who also attended yesterday’s announcement, realized was that their trip would extend far beyond the Costa Rican capital.It took a few minutes for Cauffman’s news to sink in.“You don’t know. You have no idea. There are no words,” a beaming José André Vega, 18, told Cauffman when he got his chance at the microphone. “I have read about your life story and how you got ahead. You are an admirable person.”Representatives from the Monge organization noticed some other standard-bearers in the room: the kids themselves. Sandra Cauffman on the big screen. Katherine Stanley/The Tico Times“I have two kids, and my dream for them is that they follow the example of young people like you,” said Alfredo Monge, president of Grupo Monge’s board of directors.“You are the ones who have been showing us the path to success,” María José Monge, president of the Monge Foundation, told the group.The kids were bursting with questions for Cauffman.“What’s everything like up there?” asked Daniel Aguilar, 18, eliciting broad smiles on the faces of his listeners. Hearing the breadth of his own question, he rephrased: “I mean, work-wise.”“I always used to tell my mom that I wanted to be a mad scientist someday,” said Celinne Cordero, 18. “Are there things beyond space? Is there life on Mars? These are the questions you ask yourself …. But it all seemed impossible.”Impossible? Not so fast. NASA awaits.Full disclosure: The author is the co-founder of JumpStart Costa Rica, a non-profit whose sponsors include the Monge Foundation.

Telangana displays tourism potential

first_imgAdilabad, post the formation of Telangana, is gradually disclosing its potential to develop into a prime tourist destination. An increased flow of visitors during the Christmas vacation is a testimonial to this development.It was initially adventure sports that bade enthusiasts to visit the place, some four years back. Adilabad has emerged as an excellent place for both leisure and adventure tourism, within the ambit of eco-tourism and village tourism.Nature and culture have always been valuable genres to photographers. To foster tourism, these very genres should be nurtured besides encouraging tours to interior tribal villages like Jodeghat during the Adivasi festival season. Tourism should be planned, keeping in view the fragility of the environment and the interests of the locals.Tribal people living close to eco-tourism spots could help to offer accommodation to tourists. This would not only generate income but also make the new region sustainable in tourism.last_img read more

Will Additional Charges on Luxury Housing Help Govt Revenue

first_imgWill Additional Charges on Luxury Housing Help Govt. Revenue? Share How much state or local revenue can be generated through an additional charge on luxury homes? A recent report by the Urban Institute examined estimated tax revenue that could be generated in eight states and the District of Columbia by levying such a surcharge on luxury homes.For this research, Urban Institute used data from state property records to estimate the total value of luxury residential properties. The analysis was restricted to single-family homes and excluded luxury rentals and co-ops.“In the U.S. only two states, New York, and New Jersey currently enforce transfer taxes on luxury home sales,” Urban Institute said in the research. Thus the analysis estimated the potential revenue generated from two types of taxes on high-value residential properties—a real estate transfer tax and a property tax surcharge. While the former would fall on the sales price at the point of transaction, the latter would be levied on the assessed property value, the research said. The report, which compared the revenue generated at different value thresholds for the tax surcharge, revealed that California was likely to generate the largest total tax revenue by levying such taxes. However, Colorado had the highest property tax revenue per capita.However, the report pointed out that the amount of revenue generated and the feasibility of imposing such taxes would depend on the tax laws and revenue limits or restrictions in each state. “Many of the examined states have limits in place; California and Colorado have some of the strictest,” the report said.The analysis also revealed that the stock of high-priced luxury homes varied widely across states and therefore state policymakers should consider their individual housing markets when setting thresholds for such surcharges to ensure that the revenue generated met expectations.California, home to high-growth cities like San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles, generated the most revenue from implementing a property tax surcharge, the research revealed, followed by New York. Maine, Nevada, and the District of Columbia had the lowest expected revenues.When it came to transfer tax, California again topped the list with the research revealing that the Golden State would generate the most revenue from such a tax, followed by Colorado, District of Columbia, Michigan, Massachusetts, Nevada, and Washington.

The destination with the highest percentage growth was Asia, with an increase of more than 17 percent, which, when combined with a seven percent increase for Africa, contributed to a 70 percent increase in total adventure travel sales.”Campbell reports that TravelManagers has also recorded double-digit growth in both Australia and New Zealand, at 11.5 percent and 11 percent respectively. “We also achieved close to ten percent growth in one of our most high-value destinations, Europe,” he adds. “It’s very pleasing to see strong results occurring across all destinations, rather than being confined to just a few.”Other categories to have recorded strong results in the first quarter include guided coach tours and customised holiday packages, which have increased by 27 percent and 21 percent respectively.“These categories tend to feature more extensive, detailed itineraries: it’s a great indication that our personal travel managers (PTMs) are continuing to focus on designing holiday experiences that are individually tailored to their clients’ needs.”Sports-related travel has also increased significantly year-on-year, and although it represents a relatively small percentage of TravelManagers’ total sales volume, Campbell describes this achievement as a hallmark of the company’s overall philosophy.“We have a network of PTMs who among them represent a vast range of interests when it comes to travel, and every area of the company is designed to foster that entrepreneurial spirit so that they can grow their businesses by pursuing those interests.”IMAGE: Chief Operating Officer – Grant Campbelllast_img read more

Santilal Mukherjee and others Subrata Sen began his directorial debut with Ek Je Aachey Kanya, “Only two artisans make them in Japan.” said an investigator. considering aspects like transparency, Naidu irked Vajpayee with his attempt to manipulate the situation in favour of Advani and for making the oblique suggestion that Vajpayee should pave the way for Advani,"Lah Purush" (iron man) as he called him as Prime Minister In one of those moments Vajpayee openly snubbed him at a public platform inPanchvati declaring sarcastically Advani as his successor in the next election (2004 Lok Sabha polls) This caused considerable consternation and Naidu mended fences with Vajpayee with great difficulty Immediately after this episode Naidu in one of the BJP’s national executive meets declaredVajpayee as the "Tallest ever Prime Minister" but stopped short of describing him as "God’s gift to India" an appellation he reserved for Modi It is unlikely that even Vajpayee an admirer of Jawaharlal Nehru was amused by Naidu’s accolades —although he remained silent The RSS was certainly wary of promoting a cult of personality within the BJP but could not say much owing to Vajpayee’s stature Indeed Naidu was going great guns till he met his nemesis in the 2004 Lok Sabha elections in which the BJP under his stewardship lost badly Considering discretion is the better part of valour Naidu soon resigned asparty president citing personal reasons In fact Naidu has found himself at sea in the last decade of his political journey The gods (Vajpayee and Advani) that he adored showed their feet of clay; Vajpayee’s health took a toll on his political primacy while Advani fell from grace and lost his charm Given his irrepressible tendency to shower praises and look at his mentors with godly attributes Naidu’s description of Modi as "God’s gift to India" is nothing but a natural culmination of his politics So long as Modi dominates the political scene Naidu will stick to his guns even if the RSS frowns upon him That however must not undermine his innate capability to change with the time Recall Devkant Baruh who said "Indira is India and India is Indira" and who turned against Gandhi after she lost the election in 1977 Flattery has a unique and peculiar tradition in Indian politics And Naidu is an obedient pallbearer Beijing: China hopes that the military cooperation between India and the US will be conducive to regional peace and stability and not the opposite Chinese defence ministry said on Thursday Asked about India and the US firming up close defence ties during the recent visit of US defence secretary James Mattis Chinese defence ministry spokesman Col Wu Qian said China has noted the reports in this regard Representational image Getty images Mattis visited India from 26-27 September and held high-level bilateral talks "We hope that the military cooperation between India and the US will be conducive to regional peace and stability but not the opposite" he said China has a kept close watch on Mattis’ visit which comes in the backdrop of New Delhi and Washington steadily stepping up defence ties The US has offered to jointly manufacture F-16 fighter jets and has approved the sale of Guardian drones to India for long surveillance missions in the Indian Ocean where Chinese ships and submarines are increasing their presence Both India and the US also announced close cooperation in the Indo-Pacific regions Meanwhile an article in the state-run Global Times onThursdaysaid peace is paramount for the growth of China-India ties "Peace is paramount for the growth of China-India relations despite the border war in 1962 and standoffs that came close to military clashes in 1987 and 2017" the article said The two countries have reached a consensus that military approach is not the best option for tackling territorial disputes and goes against mutual interests it said "China-India ties are intertwined in strategic competition due to geographic factor and national strength" the article said advocating restraint between the two in handling their rivalry Apologise apologise sincerely and start afresh This is the way to go if Arvind Kejriwal wants to redeem himself Of course this depends on whether he thinks he needs redemption However now that Anna Hazare has made clear his unhappiness over the developments in the Aam Aadmi Party which has been in free fall in public perception he should take serious note Too much damage has been done to his image and that of his party already and he cannot allow matters to drift anymore An attempt to brazen it out willdrag him deeper into the bottomless pit Being the sole driving force of the party he has many advantages And it’s not too late in the day to initiate corrective action Here’s what he can do: Introspect: It helps introspection if there’s a strong element of self-criticism in it Kejriwal has shown impatience with criticism from others even well-intentioned folk Earlier when he was the flag-bearer of a great idea the attitude was treated with indulgence by all — doesn’t being impatient with the staid and the routine make a revolutionary what he is That no longeris the case With the halo of idealism no more visible he comes across as churlish and arrogant He can at least criticise himself in private analyse where and how he went wrong and stop defending himself That is the first step File image of Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal AFP Say "I made mistakes": There’s nothing like a heart-felt admission of error He can call a massive rally of party workers volunteers and sympathisers and announce with no inhibition that this is not the party he wanted and promised everyone three years ago It had strayed far from its core principles and become a snakepit with some opportunists and undesirable elements “I made the mistake of choosing them over better people; I will make amends” His words may not resonate among the audience actual and intended the same way as earlier; he might even be ridiculed but it would unburden him of guilt and allow him to start with a clean mind and conscience Swift and decisive action: A man is known by the company he keeps By now Kejriwal must be aware of the kind of company he keeps He should go for wholesale change With 67 lawmakers in a 70-member House he has ample room to throw out those with a dubious track record Cleaning the ‘house’ (both literal and metaphorical) is the best way to keep diseases away He must impress upon the party that it exists because of him; it’s not the other way around It won’t appear polite coming from a person who had been talking about intra-party democracy not too long ago But that is the reality of his party of all parties Inner party democracy is largely a myth Others must acknowledge it Stop berating others: It’s dangerous business when you stand on very weak ground and still choose to go hammer and tong at others The holier-than-thou approach works when you are impeccable in your conduct and you still have the respect of people When you have neither you come across as a rabble-rouser Kejriwal must put the focus back on good work reconnect with the big idea that made him what he is today and mark himself out as different from others He showed great promise once he can rekindle it with honesty of purpose By berating others he is only making himself smaller If he is being criticised by all and sundry it is not without reason Make intellect relevant again: Back then Kejriwal’s trademark simplicity had gained wide appeal because of the strong-yet-understated intellectual content that stood as its backdrop Forceful intellectual arguments by his erstwhile companions enhanced his aura Then one fine morning he decided to kick them out and settle for minnows He looked much bigger in the process but came out much smaller as an intellectual entity Thus he can fight now but offer no intelligent justification for it He can keep claiming he is fighting for a cause but he cannot convince people aboutwhat it is He can think of taking back those who left him or find new ones to develop the party’s intellectual support system Despite the size of the mess in which Kejriwal finds himself he can still revive himself There are people lakhs of AAP volunteers in particular who still watch him with high expectation It’s upto him to take a call whether to make amends It can all begin with an apology New Delhi: Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra said on Tuesday that he feared he could be arrested by the Anti-Corruption Branch (ACB) which has summoned him on 4 July regarding thewater tanker scam that he has exposed "I have come to know from reliable sources that the ACB is planning to arrest me at the earliest" Mishra told journalists "They want to arrest me as early as possible" Delhi Water Minister Kapil Mishra Image credit: Twitter/@KapilMishraAAP He said the ACB which is under the Central government had summoned him for questioning regarding the scam which took place during the previous Congress regime in Delhi Congress leader Sheila Dikshit headed the Delhi government for 15 years till December 2013 "Why is the BJP after us and not Sheila Dikshit" Mishra asked adding he was not afraid of going to prison "My fight against corruption will continue even if I am sent to jail" he said Mishra said he had submitted the entire fact-finding report of the water tanker scam with all proofs against Dikshit to the Delhi Lt Governor but no action against her was being taken "ACB is not calling Sheila Dikshit for questioning in the Rs 400 crore water tanker scam instead they registered an FIR against Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal and summoned me for questioning" he said adding "This shows they want to use this report politically" He alleged the ACB was targeting the ministers and officers of only the Aam Aadmi Party city government "We had filed three FIRs against Sheila Dikshit in different matters but the ACB did not take any action against her The vigilance department has sent 38 cases to ACB to file an FIR but it did not file any case They are only targeting the AAP government" Mishra said The AAP government in June 2015 constituted a five-member fact-finding committee to probe the irregularities in hiring some 385 stainless steel water tankers by the Delhi Jal Board in 2012 during Dikshit’s rule Its report submitted to Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal in August 2015 highlights alleged corruption of Rs 400 crore in the process of awarding tenders for hiring water tankers and recommended FIR against Dikshit and a probe by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) and the ACB The ACB had registered an FIR against Kejriwal and his predecessor Dikshit on 20 June in connection with the water tanker scam The FIR against Kejriwal was registered on the complaint of Bharatiya Janata Party legislator Vijender Gupta "for causing delay in the probe and not cancelling the contract for water tankers" Ranchi:An image of Mahendra Singh Dhoni playing drums and shaking legs had made a lasting impression in Ranchiduring the opening of the venue but about four years later when the city becomes India’s 26th Test centre the mood is strikingly sombre When Ranchi makes its Test debut in India’s series-defining third cricket Test against Australia for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in two days time the most famous son of city will be busy leading his state in the in the domestic one-dayers in Delhi JSCA stadium in Ranchi Twitter/ @BlackCaps Having shed his ‘whites’ to prolong his career in shorter formats of the game in late 2014 the most famous son of the Ranchi is currently in New Delhi as his team play Vidarbha in the quarter finals of Vijay Hazare Trophy on Wednesday The intense build-up to the Ranchi Test notwithstanding Dhoni is certainly going to be missed something that is evident from empty ticket counters in the city "It’s all because of Dhoni that we’re able to host our first Test match here His rise has put the city on the international map But at the moment we want him to do well in New Delhi At the same time we hope Ranchi becomes lucky for Team India" Dhoni’s childhood coach Keshav Banerjee told PTI The association has distributed free passes to schools and institutions including Dhoni’s alma mater Jawahar Vidya Mandir at Shyamali as the secretary said every day about 10000 students will turn up "Dhoni is the only icon here Certainly the crowd will miss him during the historic occasion But we are trying our best to fill in the stands We expect to see at least 30000 in attendance each day" Jharkhand State Cricket Association (JSCA) secretary Debashis Chakraborty told PTI of the 40000-capacity stadium at Dhurwa in the south-western outskirts of the city If not a grand cultural programme that marked the inauguration of the stadium on the eve of the India-England one-dayer on 18 January 2013 the state association had originally planned a felicitation for Dhoni But Jharkhand’s fine fortunes in the Vijay Hazare Trophy played a spoilsport "Our team is in a crucial stage (in domestic one-dayers) and we want Dhoni to return with the Vijay Hazare Trophy" he said The state’s original facility was at the Keenan Stadium in Jamshedpur but with the rise of Dhoni the Rs 180-crore stadium here came up in very little time Within three years of its maiden ODI the venue has hosted four ODIs and one Twenty20I and the third Test will ink a new chapter in the stadium’s history This has become a reality after the BCCI’s ambitious plans to take Test cricket to small centres to revive its dwindling popularity "We are grateful to the Board for awarding the Test status to Ranchi We have put up hoardings across the city mentioning our ‘first Test match on Jharkhand soil’ with Dhoni’s photo "He is our ambassador Whenever he is in Ranchi he visits the venue and spends a lot of time here doing fitness training or giving us valuable inputs" Chakraborty said The JSCA has also invited Dhoni’s family members who are expected to be present in any of the five days Brisbane: Australian all-rounder James Faulkner reckons that the 22-yard strip used at the Gabba for the second ODI against India will also be "flat" but at the same time more "competitive" than the WACA pitch where both teams enjoyed a run-feast "Everyone was quite surprised with how the wicket played at Perth It was obviously very flat and we saw so many runs being scored I think any time over 300 runs is being scored and chased it’s definitely a flat wicket" Faulkner said ahead of the second ODI against India File photo of James Faulkner (L) AFP "I’m expecting the same sort of scenario here as well I have not seen an ODI wicket here (in Brisbane) that has not been flat for a fair while It should have good pace and carry and should be a good contest again" said Faulkner ahead of the game Australia fielded an all-pace attach in Perth and are expected to go in with the same bowling combination at Brisbane as well "It’s a tough gig bowling at Perth and here Runs can be scored so fast due to the pace on the ball The pitches don’t really grip as much as the MCG or Canberra ones that we will come up against later in the tournament I think everyone got hit the other day so you can’t really single out any one due to how flat the conditions were" he said "The big change was the overs leading into the Powerplay with batsmen tending to milk it around and staying and then using that as a launching pad "That was obviously a dangerous time for any team batting if you lost a wicket before that five over period it could halt your momentum Likewise if you didn’t lose a wicket it could help them set up a big total "I quite like the new rules It goes back to five in the last 10 overs It’s still a massive challenge for the bowlers no doubt but it’s a bit more normal now" he added The highlight of Australia’s run-chase on Tuesday was the manner in which Steve Smith and George Bailey went after the Indian spinners Faulkner denied that it wasn’t planned but added that is where Australian strength will lie going ahead "Obviously the first two games being in Perth and Brisbane where it traditionally doesn’t spin as much in one-day cricket it is hard for any spinner whether it’s India or Australia "It’s a hard gig but look it’s definitely going to change when we play in Melbourne Canberra and in Sydney at the back end where it will spin We’ll just take it game by game" said the all-rounder "A lot of it would come down to the total with 300-plus you have to try and take on any bowler early to unsettle them It wasn’t an aim of ours as a team to go after the spinners or anyone It was just playing the ball I thought they both played beautifully" he added Last but not the least though Faulkner warned his opponents that the Australian batting line-up packed enough punch to chase down tall targets despite missing David Warner and Mitchell Marsh for this upcoming match "Since Darren Lehmann’s taken over as coach he’s given us a hell of a lot of confidence as a batting group and as a group in general He said the other night after the game he’d rather see us being bowled out for 200 while trying to reach 300-plus than sort of nudging it around and making a meal of it "I’ve a hell of a lot of confidence playing under him and I know every other player in the group does as well to try and stretch our limits as a group" he signed off PTI By: Reuters | London | Published: November 14 2016 2:29 pm Dominic Thiem won the opening set against Novak Djokovic but then lost the next two in the opener of ATP World Tour finals (Source: Reuters) Top News Dominic Thiem offered a further pointer to a future world order in men’s tennis as the Austrian briefly ruffled Novak Djokovic’s feathers on his ATP World Tour Finals debut on Sunday The 23-year-old the first Austrian to finish in the top 10 since Thomas Muster in 1997 produced some electrifying moments during a first-set tiebreaker that he snatched 12-10 Although his challenge fizzled out thereafter some of his play — especially a sweet single-handed backhand — had a sell-out O2 Arena crowd roaring its approval Not that they should have been surprised After all world number nine Thiem has won four titles this year and reached the semi-finals of the French Open where he also lost to Djokovic World number two Djokovic was impressed as he dropped a set to the Austrian for the first time in four meetings “Dominic definitely seemed very impressive considering it was his debut in the World Tour Finals” Djokovic said “It didn’t seem like he was overwhelmed by the stage or occasion He came out firing He came out really playing great tennis Got to give him credit for that He was obviously very pumped up to get to the court and give his best” While Djokovic and new world number one Andy Murray look set to dominate in 2017 the likes of Thiem Germany’s Alex Zverev Australian Nick Kyrgios and several others are beginning to make inroads into the top echelons of the game Thiem will be disappointed that his challenge faded so quickly but with matches to come against fellow debutant Gael Monfils and Milos Raonic all is not lost “It was a really good atmosphere I mean 17000 it’s I think by far the biggest crowd I ever played in front of” Thiem said “I think they are also excited to see some new faces at this tournament That’s why they cheered a lot for me I guess “If I keep the level from the first set it’s not a guarantee that I win the match but I have chances “I want to play two more good matches then I will see what the outcome is But first of all it’s a very good experience for me to play three matches against top-10 players” Djokovic who saved six set points two with the help of Thiem double faults in the first set coasted through the first nine games of the match before things got tricky While frustrated at losing the opening set the 29-year-old said he was pleased with his performance as he targets a return to the ATP top ranking before the end of the year “I didn’t manage to win that first set of course you’re frustrated On the other hand I think I managed to kind of compose myself and really gather all my attention and concentration to what
