The Premier said the country’s best beach and best island destination in the world prizes are worth boasting but there is also a strong economy with the country securing a triple B plus rating from Standard & Poor in 2014. The Turks and Caicos Real Estate Association is among those represented on the six city tour, which has now tackled four major US cities namely: Atlanta, Houston, Dallas and Chicago. Braving the 40° temperatures, travel agents turned out strong last night and remained impressed by the 12-minute video feature produced by Caya Hico Media. The delegation next journeys to New York City where likely the largest turnout will appear for a roof top luxury promotional event will be held at the celebrated Knickerbocker Hotel.
Jeff Selinger, Kenai Peninsula Area Biologist: “Bears are out moving around so you know pick up the garbage and the trash around the houses and minimize the potential of having a negative encounter with bears by being aware when you’re out in the woods.” Police say if people see a brown bear in town, they still should call 911 since that is more rare. Police say most bear sightings don’t need to be called in to 911. But police do want to hear about bears that are aggressive, sick, injured, orphaned or rummaging through trash. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department Game and Fish wants to warn the public that bears are on the move and to be “Bear Aware”. However, Police are urging people to stop calling emergency lines to report non-emergency bear sightings. Selinger: “The Bears are going to be looking for fish as well, keep your property picked up and minimize attractants that might bring bears into a neighborhood. Keep your eyes up when you’re out there recreating.”

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution. Recently updated to include digital-photo-frame capabilities, the Lenovo Smart Clock brings Google Assistant goodness to your nightstand.

Juan Garzon / CNET Samsung has prided itself in keeping the headphone jack on its flagship phones, but that may come to an end with its large-screen Galaxy Note 10. The Note 10 won’t include a 3.5mm headphone jack, according to an Android Police report Thursday citing a source “familiar with the company’s plans.” Also going are physical buttons for power and volume, which will be replaced with pressure sensitive areas similar to the Google Pixel 2 and HTC U11 squeeze function. Samsung said it doesn’t comment on rumors or speculation. Apple made the controversial move to remove the 3.5mm port when it released the iPhone 7 in 2016. Google, OnePlus, Huawei and others followed suit by removing the jack from their flagship phones, with Samsung being the most notable phone maker keeping it. Physical buttons appear to be slowly on the way out as more phone makers look to create sleeker designs. A reveal for the Note 10, sometime this summer, will answer other big questions, such as will there be multiple models, what will the battery capacity be and is there going to be a camera on the stylus.

Less than two weeks ahead of the 2018 U.S. midterm elections, Hulu is bringing ABC News Live and CBS News’ CBSN — two made-for-the-internet, 24-hour news channels — to its over-the-top live TV service.Starting Thursday (Oct. 26), Hulu With Live TV subscribers will be able to tune to three news streaming channels: ABC News Live, CBSN and Cheddar, the startup news network that joined the lineup this spring. The $40-per-month package also includes traditional cable news nets CNBC, CNN, CNN International, Fox News Channel, Fox Business Network, and HLN.For Hulu, ABC News Live and CBSN — both of which are available to watch for free on other platforms — let it plug in name-brand news programming essentially for no cost. The news orgs will expand their reach by getting in front of Hulu’s skinny-bundle user base, which last month hit 1 million subscribers. Popular on Variety “They’re a major player in the OTT space,” said Colby Smith, ABC News’ senior VP of content and partnerships. “We ultimately want [ABC News Live] to be ubiquitous – wherever cord-cutters and young audiences are.”ABC News Live debuted on the Roku Channel in May, and has since expanded to Facebook Watch (a deal under which ABC News is receiving funding from the social platform). It’s also on ABC’s owned-and-operated properties, including ABCNews.com, mobile apps, and apps for Apple TV and Amazon Fire TV.The focus for ABC News Live is on unedited live coverage, rather than on headline-roundup shows delivered by newsreaders sitting behind a desk or pre-produced shows (although it does mix in such conventional formats). Contributions come from all 1,300 staffers of ABC News around the world.“We feel there’s a large, young audience disenfranchised with the cable-news format,” Smith said. “We’re trying to do something no one else is doing – it’s more live, in-the-field and raw, showing how news is gathered.”On average, viewers who actively seek out ABC News Live now spend three hours per week watching the service, according to Smith. The audience “skews decades younger than TV,” said Smith, with a median age of under 40. ABC News Live is on track to soon stream over 1 million hours per week.For now, ABC News Live doesn’t carry any advertising. Currently, ad breaks are populated by network promos. ABC News is aiming to start enabling dynamic ad insertion on the live-streaming service before the end of 2018, Smith said.Disney, which owns ABC, is one of Hulu’s parent companies and is set to take over majority control of Hulu once its deal for 20th Century Fox assets closes. But according to Smith, the shared Disney parentage had no bearing on the Hulu distribution deal for ABC News Live: “We’ve been talking to Hulu for years,” he said.CBS News’ CBSN, launched in 2014, joins Hulu With Live TV under an existing agreement between Hulu and CBS Corp. that brought CBS, CBS Sports Network and Pop to the OTT television service.CBSN delivers live news coverage and reporting from CBS News’ journalists worldwide, and has aired 25 original long-form documentaries to date. CBSN also recently launched CBSN AM, its first live daily programming in the 7-8 a.m. ET hour. In addition to Hulu, CBSN is available on CBSNews.com and the CBS News apps for mobile and connected-TV devices, as well as the CBS All Access subscription service.“This is an important step in our ongoing strategy of expanding distribution of CBSN, now available on multiple [internet pay-TV services] as well as our CBS News digital platforms,” Christy Tanner, EVP and GM, CBS News Digital, said in a prepared statement.Launched in May 2017, Hulu With Live TV includes live and on-demand programming from more than 50 sports, news, entertainment and kids’ channels, as well as access to more than 75,000 episodes in Hulu’s VOD library. The lineup includes ABC, NBC, CBS, and Fox locals (in most markets) and national cable networks including ESPN, Fox Sports, TBS, TNT, CNN, CNBC, Fox News, Bravo, A&E, the CW and Telemundo.Meanwhile, Hulu is mulling the introduction of lower-cost live TV bundles that would eliminate linear feeds of entertainment cable networks to reduce programming costs and improve margins. The company said it is in talks with programmers on creating skinnier bundles. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Italy is renewing its historical ties with India by commemorating the legacy of one of its iconic Oriental scholars and Indophiles Luigi Pio Tessitori, who unearthed the Indus Valley site of Kalibangan in Rajasthan in the early 20th century.In a special ceremony, the Italian Cultural Centre in the Capital dedicated its multi-purpose hall to Tessitori, naming it after him. It was followed by a series of presentations on Tessitori by historian Nayanjot Lahiri and professor Furio Honsell, the mayor of Udine and the former vice-chancellor of University of Udine, who is lecturing in the Capital throughout the week. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Tessitori, born in Udine in Italy in 1887, died of pneumonia in Bikaner in 1919 at the age of 32. He documented the Bardic traditions of Rajasthan as a photographer, researched extensively on The Ramayana, and wrote comparative treatises.While studying the ancient civilisations and history of India, Tessitori discovered that some ruins around Bikaner showed a pre-Mauryan character dating back to the Indus Valley. He sought the help of John Marshall of the Archaeological Survey of India and identified the ancient Harappan lineage known as Kalibangan.

The Italian carried the ancient culture and traditions of India to his homeland at a time when awareness about the country’s rich heritage between 1900-1914.His works were subsequently published in both Italian and English. They were preserved in both Italy and India.Tessitori, who was a scholar of Sanskrit, Pali, Prakrit and Marwari, also a collector of Indian antiquities and manuscripts. He explored nearly 100 historical sites in Rajasthan. The mayor of Udine, Furio Honsell, an authority on Tessitori and his work, said he was determined to ‘connect Bikaner and Udine as twin cities in memory of Tessitori’s work.’‘Several years ago, the government of Italy had initiated the process to declare Udine and Bikaner twin cities. The process never really came through but I am determined to revive it,’ said Furio Honsell.This Indo-Italian exchange will continue through October with an exhibition of Islamic paintings and artefacts, ‘Akbar: The Great Emperor of India’, that will open at Palazzo Sciarra, Fondazione Roma Museo on 22 October.An exhibition of about 60 rare photographs of Indian freedom fighters by early Italian modernist and revolutionary Tina Modotti also opened at the Italian Cultural Centre .
