Three gunshots fired the night Colten Boushie died on Saskatchewan farm

first_imgThe Canadian PressBATTLEFORD, Sask. – The Crown says evidence will show that three shots were fired the night a 22-year-old Indigenous man was killed on a Saskatchewan farm.Crown prosecutor Bill Burge told the trial of Gerald Stanley on Tuesday that court will hear from the farmer’s son, Sheldon, who came out running when he and his father thought someone was trying to steal a vehicle from their yard in August. 2016.Burge told the jurors they will hear that Sheldon Stanley went inside to get his keys because a grey Ford Escape SUV was starting to drive away when it hit another vehicle in the yard.“As he was running into the house, he heard two gunshots. When he got out of the house with his car keys, he heard another gunshot. He looked. He saw his father standing by the driver’s door of this vehicle with a gun and a clip in his hand,” Burge told court.“Sheldon Stanley approached the vehicle and saw Colten Boushie in the driver’s seat slumped toward the steering wheel.”Burge said there were two females in the back seat of the vehicle. Two other males had jumped out of the SUV and ran away.Burge told the jury an autopsy found Boushie died from a gunshot wound that entered behind his left ear and exited through the side of his head.Police recovered a Ruger-style handgun.Stanley, who is 56, has pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder.RCMP Cpl. Terry Heroux was called to the Stanley farm the night of the shooting and took several photos. Some of them show the SUV, its front left wheel worn down to the rim, with the doors open and a body under blankets on the ground.Dark blood stains can be seen on the seat and dashboard. A broken .22-calibre rifle was found next to the vehicle. Heroux said the barrel was bent but there was a bullet in the chamber and five in a clip.Boushie, who was from the Red Pheasant First Nation, was initially a passenger when the SUV drove onto the farm near Biggar, Sask., on Aug. 9, 2016.Supporters and family members of the accused and of the victim packed the courtroom Tuesday.Boushie’s uncle, Alvin Baptiste, brought an eagle feather with him to the proceedings.“I bring it in and this is for justice,” he said during a break. “This is a symbolic symbol of First Nations people.”He said his sister Debbie Baptiste, who is Boushie’s mother, was at the courthouse but not in the courtroom for the first witness.“She’s not sitting in the courtroom to see those graphic pictures.”Three weeks have been put aside for the trial.last_img read more

TSX sharply higher Dow Jones soars snapping sevenday losing streak

TORONTO – North American markets were up sharply Monday, with major indexes in both Toronto and New York posting triple-digit gains amid relief rallies on both sides of the border.In Toronto, the S&P/TSX composite index soared 163.69 points to close at 14,466.39, easily offsetting a 103-point decline on Friday as the heavily weighted mining and energy sectors led the charge.“That is a good way to put it — a relief rally,” said Craig Jerusalim, a portfolio manager at CIBC Asset Management.On the TSX, where energy makes up a large portion of the index, “you’re really getting the relief rally in energy and materials after such a precipitous drop in the stocks for such a long time,” he said.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average shot up 241.79 points to 17,615.17 as the index broke a seven-day losing streak that saw it lose almost 380 points.The Nasdaq was also solidly ahead, up 58.26 points at 5,101.80, while the S&P 500 advanced 26.61 points to 2,104.18.On commodity markets, the September crude contract rose $1.09 to US$44.96 a barrel, while September natural gas added more than four cents to US$2.84 per thousand cubic feet and the December gold contract rose $10 to US$1,104.10 an ounce.The Canadian dollar also strengthened, adding 0.78 of a U.S. cent to 76.92 cents in one of the loonie’s rare advances in recent weeks and one seen as unlikely to gain much traction in the near term.With the U.S. Federal Reserve widely expected to increase interest rates in either September or December, that should put further pressure on the Canadian currency, Jerusalim said.“I’d say the fundamentals in Canada relative to U.S. suggests the Canadian dollar should stay at current levels or lower,” he said.In corporate news, Bershire Hathaway is acquiring aircraft component maker Precision Castparts for about US$32.4 billion in cash in what is the biggest bet in the storied career of its chairman, Warren Buffett.The deal, valued at about US$37.2 billion including debt, far outstrips Buffett’s US$26.7-billion deal for BNSF railway in 2010. It also follows a number of other major acquisitions outside the core insurance companies on which the man known as the “Oracle of Omaha” built his investment empire.In Canada, the founder and CEO of Gildan Activewear announced plans to sell a big block of his shares in the Montreal-based apparel manufacturer.Glenn Chamandy has entered into a plan with a Canadian financial institution to sell up to four million of his common shares, worth about $167 million at current prices, over the next year. Gilden shares closed down $1.22 or 2.83 per cent at $41.86.

Florida States Drop From No 1 Wasnt Unprecedented

Despite beating Syracuse 38-20 Saturday, the (formerly) No. 1 ranked Florida State Seminoles found themselves ranked second in the latest AP Poll, trailing Mississippi State after the Bulldogs beat previous No. 2 Auburn 38-23 at home in Starkville. It was the first time Florida State had not occupied the AP’s top slot since Nov. 24 of last season.Although Mississippi State’s victory over Auburn was impressive, the way the polls typically work is that No. 1 stays No. 1 as long as No. 1 keeps winning (or soundly beats an underdog opponent). Florida State was favored by 23 against Syracuse and won by 18 in a game that was essentially over midway through the third quarter. The Seminoles are also the defending national champions, and so far this season they’ve outscored opponents by more than 18 points per game (a number that becomes nearly 21 if we throw out their six-point win over Clemson in which they were missing 2013 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Jameis Winston). If Florida State is presumed to be the nation’s best team — as it was before the season — it’s hard to find a obvious misstep that proves otherwise. (If anything, a good Bayesian should probably be more suspicious of Mississippi State, which was unranked as recently as five weeks ago.)Then again, the Seminoles have also played just one team (Clemson) ranked among the AP’s Top 25 at the time of the game, and their overall strength of schedule ranks 64th in the FBS, according to Sports-Reference.com’s Simple Rating System. While my Elo variant still has them ranked first, it draws heavily from knowledge of how good they were last season. Computer-rating systems that don’t account for Florida State’s presumed strength as a prior, by contrast, tend to rank it among the country’s best teams — but generally not as No. 1. (That honor is more often bestowed upon either Mississippi State or Ole Miss, who very nearly bumped Florida State to No. 3 in the AP voting.) Combined with potential distaste over the sexual assault allegation against Winston, AP voters had several reasons to drop the Seminoles from their perch atop the rankings, despite the team’s 22-game winning streak and championship incumbency.How frequently do No. 1 ranked teams fall in the AP Poll despite winning their most recent game? According to Sports-Reference’s college football data, there have been 21 cases (since 1992) of the AP’s top team beating an FBS opponent but dropping in the next poll (ratings and expected margins shown below are based on the Elo rating variant I described in an earlier post):Compare the incumbents’ performances to those of the overtaking teams that claimed No. 1 in the subsequent AP poll:There are a few circumstances that can lead to No. 1 winning a game but losing its ranking, usually involving some combination of the incumbent disappointing and/or the upstart exceeding expectations. Florida State’s tumble was more an example of the latter than the former — the Seminoles underwhelmed by a bit, but the bigger factor was Mississippi State’s strong performance against Auburn.Most of the cases above involve a similar chain of events, although a few saw the incumbent disappoint by so great a margin that No. 2 slid up just by playing to expectations. On other occasions, the challenger moved up without even playing; in 1992, No. 2 Washington watched on the sidelines as No. 1 Miami struggled to an 8-7 win over unranked Arizona, then claimed the AP’s top spot three days later. (The Hurricanes and Huskies would flip-flop the No. 1 slot twice more — each time in spite of incumbent wins — before the season was over.) And sometimes the pollsters swapped teams at the top for relatively arbitrary reasons, such as when Penn State crushed No. 21 Ohio State 63-14 — yet dropped behind Nebraska, who’d beaten previous No. 2 Colorado 24-7. (Despite going undefeated the rest of the season, the Nittany Lions would never again stake their claim to No. 1 over Nebraska from that point on, and were unable to face the Huskers in the postseason because of the Rose Bowl’s conference tie-ins.)The good news for Florida State is that it still has the highest probabilities of winning out and winning its conference among the major-conference undefeateds, according to ESPN’s Football Power Index simulations. Barring the real possibility of a change to Winston’s availability — on top of the sexual assault allegations, news broke Monday night that Florida State was investigating whether the quarterback signed autographs for money — the numbers show the Seminoles as very likely to earn a berth into the inaugural College Football Playoff field, regardless of Sunday’s ranking loss. read more

Randgold welcomes Mali settlement – gold mine production guidance maintained

first_imgRandgold Resources today welcomed the announcement of a political settlement brokered in Mali by its West African neighbours and said the disruptions which followed last month’s military coup had not materially affected its gold production in that country. Over the weekend the military junta announced that it had agreed to reinstate the constitution, in terms of which the president of the national assembly will act as head of state and oversee the appointment of an interim prime minister to manage the country’s return to democratic rule.As part of the settlement agreement, President Amadou Toumani Toure has formally resigned as head of state. The appointment of the interim prime minister will be by consensus and involve civil society and political parties. In return, Mali’s ECOWAS neighbours have lifted the sanctions they had imposed and committed to actively support the restoration of stability in Mali.Randgold CEO Mark Bristow said the announced resolution of the political crisis had strengthened the company’s confidence in the political maturity of the West African region and its ability to settle conflict situations without external involvement. Randgold owns and operates the Loulo/Gounkoto mine complex in Mali and also operates Morila, a joint venture with AngloGold Ashanti.“During this period these operations continued to operate without any material disruption and the fact that they still have sufficient supplies of fuel and other consumables on hand is a tribute to our partnership and in-country management philosophy. Our production guidance for 2012 remains unchanged, although we have not completed our assessment of the impact this situation has had on costs. We will monitor the implementation of the political settlement by the relevant parties, and give the market a full update when we report our first quarter results on 3 May,” he said.last_img read more

Misuse of scramblers and quad bikes allowed to reach epidemic proportions

first_img Gardaí from Ballymun seize scramblers in the Ballymun area this morning. Please remember if you are driving a scrambler in a public place you must have a current driving licence & insurance. pic.twitter.com/orVbRaC435— An Garda Síochána (@GardaTraffic) June 12, 2018 By Cathy Lee 19,008 Views A 36-YEAR-OLD man was hospitalised with serious head injuries last Saturday after a scrambler bike was driven over a hill in Darndale Park, Coolock and landed on him as he sunbathed.The horrific incident has led to calls for greater regulations and legislation to apply to the use of such all-terrain vehicles.In a statement, Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said that “the incident in Darndale Park underscores the dangers associated with the misuse of these vehicles, particularly in unsuitable environments where the potential for serious injuries to innocent bystanders exists”.He previously described the use of such vehicles as an “important public safety issue”.Currently, these vehicles – despite being designed for off-road, private use – are permitted on public roads under Irish law once the user holds a license and is taxed and insured.If driven on a public road or footpath, they are subject to all of the regulatory controls that apply to other vehicles. For example, they must adhere to the speed limits and riders must wear a helmet at all times. Penalties include fixed charge notices, penalty points, fines and possible seizure of the vehicle.However, there are grey areas when they are used in public spaces that are not roads or footpaths. Sunday 17 Jun 2018, 6:30 AM Motorcycle users in grasslands https://jrnl.ie/4064333 Source: An Garda Síochána/Twitter 54 Comments center_img Short URL Motorcycle users in grasslands Sinn Féin TD Dessie Ellis has called for the extension of “the definition of public space in the road traffic act to include parks, greens and unused ground”, as well as providing gardaí “the ability to impound quads and bikes that are used illegally in private property”.Under the 1961 Road Traffic Act, a public road means a road which the road authority is responsible for maintaining.Earlier this year, members of An Garda Síochána, the Road Safety Authority and the Revenue Commissioner met with officials from various government departments to discuss the growing problem.Flanagan said that gardaí continue to work on the ground with local authorities “implementing non-legislative enforcement solutions to deal with the misuse of scramblers and quad bikes”, adding that “it is vital that this engagement continues”.He has also, however, sought the advice of the Attorney General on what legislative amendments are required to curb anti-social activity involving quads and scramblers.This comes as a number of local councillors have voiced their complaints about the use of scramblers in their areas.Dublin City councillor Noeleen Reilly said that “there is a real breakdown in the law and communities are being held to ransom”.Speaking on RTÉ’s News At One on Monday, Reilly said this “has been a consistent problem for years now”.In a separate statement, she suggested that providing land for designated use on a pilot basis could be a solution to “see if we can move these bikes off the roads and parks”.Adding his concerns, Social Democrats’ councillor Cian O’Callaghan said: “The misuse of quad bikes and scramblers has been allowed to reach epidemic proportions in many communities.”He added that it’s “not unusual to see children as young as seven or eight racing around housing estates and in public open spaces and parks, posing a huge danger to themselves as well as pedestrians and road users”.The supply of mechanically propelled vehicles, such as quads and scramblers, to people aged under 16 or 17 – depending on the vehicle – is an offence under the Road Traffic Act.The Road Safety Authority intends to run a safety campaign later this year with the aim of discouraging those who may be considering purchasing scramblers or quad-bikes as Christmas presents for minors. Misuse of scramblers and quad bikes ‘allowed to reach epidemic proportions’ As Gardai appeal for information after a collision with a scrambler over the weekend, counsellors call for further restriction on these vehicles.

Once Upon a Time Shows Us The Real Monster

first_img The flashbacks in Once Upon a Time have gotten really good the past couple weeks. Not only have they been perfectly cast recreations of classic stories, the last two episodes have added a genuinely surprising twist to each one. Aside from the rushed and truncated Count of Monte Cristo earlier this season, the flashbacks this season have almost been more interesting than the present-day drama in Storybrooke.Almost. Last night’s episode “Strange Case” started off with a shock: Rumplestiltskin cut his hair. After more than five seasons, you get used to the way certain characters look, and this just feels wrong. He doesn’t look like he’s going to offer you a dark, one-sided deal, he looks like he’s going to sell you a timeshare… which I now realize is the logical real-world equivalent, so carry on.The Evil Queen shows up to flirt with him, which will never cease being weird and Mr. Hyde teases that he can change his outside, but what’s inside is still there. Hyde demands a necklace and Rumple tries to choke him to death, only to find out that Hyde apparently can’t be killed. As they leave, Hyde threatens to hurt Belle.The Evil Queen (Lana Parilla) like Mr. Gold’s (Robert Carlyle) new haircut. (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)Meanwhile, Snow White is getting ready for her first day back teaching school when Regina and Dr. Jekyll arrive. They’ve just found out about Hyde’s escape. Jekyll says that when he returned to his room at Granny’s, he found the necklace Hyde took from Rumplestiltskin’s shop on his pillow. Flashback time.Back in the past, Dr. Jekyll is working on a serum that will allow a man to separate the “more noble” parts of himself from the beast that resides within. He wants to join the medical academy so he can have the necessary funds to continue his research, but his work is written off as too dangerous. Rumplestiltskin shows up and uses his magic to finish Jekyll’s research. Rumple implies that if Jekyll drinks the potion, Mary, the object of his affection, will finally notice him. And so Mr. Hyde is born.In Storybrooke, Hook prepares to move in with Emma, though Belle still resides on his ship. He gives her a mermaid’s conch shell, saying if she’s in trouble she should yell into it and he’ll hear. Rumplestiltskin doesn’t think that’s enough and casts a protection spell on the ship, preventing Hyde from entering and Belle from leaving. Meanwhile, Snow White finds out she has a new teaching assistant named Shireen. But we all know she’s actually Princess Jasmine.Shireen/Jasmine (Karen David) meets Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin). (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)Snow is having a hard time getting back into teaching. No matter what she does, her students don’t seem to be retaining information. It might have something to do with the fact that she starts out with building birdhouses, jumps into Newton’s laws of motion and then immediately switches to Algebra, asking a student to solve for X. Why don’t you try teaching one subject at a time, Snow? Shireen offers to help and comes up with a fun demonstration that apparently teaches the kids something about physics.We also learn that Jekyll has been working on a serum to kill Hyde, and Regina hopes it can also be used on the Evil Queen. Just as he’s finishing it up, the intended victims show up and trash the makeshift lab. Fortunately, Jekyll has managed to hide a little bit of the serum in his jacket pocket. Rumplestiltskin steals it and meets Hyde in the woods. He pours it on the knife and jams it into Hyde’s heart. It doesn’t work. It turns out the Hyde knew about the serum in Jekyll’s pocket and switched it with a fake.Back in the past, Hyde has had a rather successful night, persuading Mary’s father to allow Jekyll to join the medical academy. Rumplestiltskin convinces Jekyll to take the serum again in order to seduce Mary. It works, but only for the night. When Mary wakes up the next morning with Jekyll, she’s understandably freaked out. A struggle ensues, and Jekyll pushes Mary out the window. He takes the serum again, forcing Hyde to take the blame for the murder. He runs back to Rumplestiltskin, who is disappointed to find out that Hyde had actual feelings for Mary. The only reason Rumple wanted the serum was because he thought it could get rid of his feelings for Belle. He casts Hyde into the Land of Untold Stories as punishment.The real monster revealed. (Hank Harris). (Photo: Screenshot via ABC)In Storybrooke, Jekyll is hiding out on Hook’s ship with Belle. He begins acting strange, and Belle quickly deduces that he’s the one who actually killed Mary. She reaches for the conch shell to call for help, but Jekyll attacks, revealing himself to be the true monster. Fortunately, Hook heard just enough to show up and save her. During the fight, he pushes Jekyll onto a hook, killing him. That’s a little dark for this show. As Jekyll dies, so does Hyde, revealing that the only sure way to kill split personality is to kill the original. When Regina learns this information, she makes Emma promise to kill her if it comes to that. It better not come to that. You hear me, Horowitz?The twist of having Jekyll be the real murderer was a surprising take on the story and made for one of the better flashbacks we’ve seen in a while. Once Upon a Time is at its best when it can take a tale we’re all familiar with and do something completely unexpected with it. Even though things in Storybrooke didn’t really move forward much, the revelation that Regina may have to die to defeat the Evil Queen does raise the stakes for the rest of the season. Even so, the Jekyll story was enough to make this episode stand out. Now the question is, what will they do with Aladdin next week?

The colour power

first_imgCelebrating the spirit of colour orange, Camera Unlimited has brought its new photography exhibition titled Tangerine Tales to the Capital. Orange colour is considered pious in many religions like saffron robes of Buddhist monks, vermilion tilak on the forehead of a sadhu, bright orange turban worn by Sikh devotees and these symbolic visuals which can be seen in every day life have been captured very creatively by the photographers.An eighth exhibition in the series, this is an effort to blend the work of established as well as upcoming photographers, showcasing their talents on a common platform. The exhibition features photographs by Ahmed Firoz, Ambika Sethi, Dinesh Sethi, Krishan Sharma, Lubna Sen, Marta Martinez, Nitin Arjun, Rajesh Ramakrishnan, Rohit Kumar, Shilpi Choudhuri, Shivani Punia and Shoba Jolly. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Each photographers has interpreted the theme in a different manner. From a peeling orange wall depicting disturbed calmness to the explosion of vibrant expressions and colours of festival Holi, from abstracts in still life to surreal frames in motion, sunrise to sunset, the contradictions in the photographs may be obvious yet they all are tied by the common thread of colour – orange.The colour orange means different things to each of us. For some it may be the burst of energy, the passion of a glowing fire, while some associate it with the calmness of a sadhu’s robe and symbol of the autumn leaves. All the photographs on display are printed on Canvas and are framed in an identical manner which ensures that each of the artwork stands out and mark it’s impression on visitors.When: Till 24 NovemberWhere: Arpana Caur Academy of Fine Arts & Literaturelast_img read more

Want to Create an Indispensable Mobile App Do This

first_img 5 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. May 30, 2017 Register Now » Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global In recent years, mobile apps exploded on the scene and, almost instantly changed the way we live. These days, it seems as though everyone has a great idea for how to break into the market.Related: Getting Started With Small Business App DevelopmentIn fact, there are now nearly 7 million total apps available in the leading app stores. With so many programs competing for people’s attention, building yet another enticing interface is no easy task.A study conducted by App Annie in the first quarter of 2017 found that, on average, people worldwide use between eight and 12 apps per day on their smartphones. So, if you want to break into that exclusive circle, the competition is real, and you have to find ways to deliver something which people cannot live without.Here are three tips to keep in mind throughout the development process.Make sure customers can able identify the value, quickly.One of the unfortunate side effects of the internet, and the current state of technology, is that attention spans have become disturbingly short. One key study put the average right around eight seconds.With that being said, you need to promote your app’s unique selling proposition (USP) right off the bat. As a general rule of thumb, if you can’t fully describe the purpose and functionality in a sentence or two, it’s too complicated.Regardless of what type of app you are building, it needs to be conveyed as something that changes people’s lives for the better. Or at least, proves itself useful immediately.Take CM Security Master, for example. This company knows Android phones are susceptible to viruses. So, it created an intuitive privacy-protection program (available on Google Play) that scans your phone and identifies risks in real-time. Then, it cleans out the infections so your phone can work at 100 percent efficiency and your valuable data is safe.Related: 3 Ways to Build A Mobile App With No Tech SkillsClearly, its creators found a problem in the status quo, and built a tool that solves it. Its USP can be described in a few words.The takeaway: The success of a mobile app depends substantially on how well you communicate the value. In your messaging, get right to the point!Find ways to connect people.In the digital universe we call home, one of the main themes is about bringing people together. Apps have an interesting way of fabricating their own universe. A good goal to have during development is to create an authentic following in which users can add to the progression of your platform.Your mission should be to design an arena of shared value iwhich people can’t get anywhere else.The “for the people, by the people” mentality is a great idea to promote. The creators behind apps like Planet Peepz have nailed this concept down to a tee. Billed as the “very first discount shopping platform,” this program aims to build a community in which users can help one other find the best deals in the area.Within the app, businesses can create their own ads, coupons, loyalty programs and upsells, and access free reservation and appointment software.Primarily designed for service providers like dentists, vets, salons and other professionals, Planet Peepz constructed a virtual society where both consumers and establishments can reap the benefits of free cross-promotion opportunities and customer management.The takeaway: To be successful in connecting like-minded people, you’ve got to push your platform as a one-of-a-kind experience where everyone involved benefits and shares value.Keep it simple.As previously stated, attention spans are at an all-time low. It’s safe to say that smartphones themselves are a contributing factor to this phenomenon. Above all else, the usability of your app should be easy to grasp from the get-go.Users’ time is precious. Chances are, most won’t sit down to read and sift through directions. For this reason, you need to make sure every aspect of your program can be picked up and mastered within minutes — or seconds.”One of the most common factors I’ve seen in successful apps is simplicity,” says Jeff Shuford, president of Tech From Vets, a digital development company aimed at helping military veterans expand their technology-based ventures. “No one wants to spend hours trying to figure out how to use an app to its fullest extent. There should always be a sense of instant gratification.”In relation to this concept, one of the best examples today is Uber. When the founders set out, they wanted to create a simplified solution for hailing cabs. Upon opening the app, the user can get the results needed in a matter of seconds. And there’s barely anyone who can’t understand how it works.The takeaway: Smartphones are meant to make people’s lives easier. The first impression the user has and the impression your program intends should be the same.Building an app these days is a tedious job. Most people are content with the current programs on their phones and are not easily persuaded to add more to the mix. Keeping this in mind, you really need to focus on setting yourself apart, to break this tough barrier. Always be asking yourself: “How does this improve lives?”Related: A Guide On How To Get New App IdeasRemember, simply getting people to download your app is only the tip of the iceberg. You need to constantly be testing the flow and looking for ways to improve. No app is perfect. You must be committed and open to change throughout its entire lifespan. Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

first_imgRockhampton Airport in Queensland may be granted full international status.Federal MP Kirsten Livermore is currently holding high-level talks with Federal Transport Minister Anthony Albanese about what needs to be done to make full use of the airport for international tourism and trade. Minister Livermore’s first election commitment was to have the Rockhampton Airport runway extended to take international jets.Mayor Brad Carter said the council-owned airport, which is already one of the busiest and fastest-growing regional airports in Australia, is ready to expand further.“If we can secure international charter flights then our airport could be international capable tomorrow.“A new tower is being built and we already have the security, baggage handling and customs facilities that are required. We won’t need any new technology or further major investment.”If the proposal is granted it will be a great opportunity for the region’s hotels and hospitality industry to have specific tourist charters flying in from abroad.I would also enable the region’s holidaymakers to fly direct to international destinations too. <a href=”http://www.etbtravelnews.global/click/163d7/” target=”_blank”><img src=”http://adsvr.travelads.biz/www/delivery/avw.php?zoneid=10&amp;cb=INSERT_RANDOM_NUMBER_HERE&amp;n=a5c63036″ border=”0″ alt=””></a> Source = e-Travel Blackboard: C.Flast_img read more
