Radar did not work Minister Vows to find out why

first_img Apprehension of Irregular Haitian Migrants Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 17 Feb 2015 – The Immigration & Border Control Minister said he does not yet know why the coastal radar, which has been responsible for numerous interceptions since it was erected in 2012 did not detect this latest illegal boat. Since 2 am a boat load of illegal Haitians, it is believed, landed in Five Cays and so far of the suspected 40; four have been captured. Minister Donhue Gardiner gave a series of media interviews today where he stated flatly that the Turks and Caicos will not ease up on its pressure to get more help from the Haitian government to see a reduction in the illegal migration maneuverings of Haitians fleeing Haiti… but explained that right now, his focus is not on why the radar missed the boat but on ensuring his officers are equipped to capture the migrants at large. Public assistance is asked for, and if you know something you should contact Crime Stoppers where you can anonymously give information to the responders who answer the phone in Miami. The search, Minister Gardiner said is on more hotly in the Five Cays area where the vessel landed… but the illegals could be anywhere; that landing happened well over 12 hours ago. Be alert.

Two systems developing off California

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 21 May 2015 – We are watching the tropics, though we are still outside of the official start for the 2015 Atlantic Hurricane Season and there are two systems under observation by the National Hurricane Center. A tropical wave located several hundred miles south-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California is producing a large area of disorganized cloudiness and showers. This one is expected to get stronger, though slowly, over the weekend. And then an area of low pressure is expected to form during the next couple of days well to the west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. Environmental conditions are expected to be conducive for gradual development of the system over the weekend while the low moves slowly northwestward. Each system is at 10% chance for development.

Turks Caicos Tourism Statistics 2016

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 13, 2017 – Providenciales – The Turks and Caicos Islands is the fastest-growing destination in the Caribbean according to the latest statistical report from the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO). The destination welcomed and hosted some 1,300,575 tourists to its shores in 2016. While the majority of arrivals were cruise-based, 2016 marked an impressive, fifth consecutive year of growth in stopover arrivals. Further assessment of the 1.3 million arrivals in 2016 shows 453,612 visitors were stopovers and 846,963 arrivals came via cruise. Stopover Arrivals2016 marked a record setting year for the destination; for the first time the Turks and Caicos Islands received more than 400,000 stopover arrivals through our international airports and fixed based operations. Despite political uncertainties, security concerns and economic challenges in our major source markets, stopovers to the destination grew by a robust 17.5 percent in 2016 totaling 453,612 arrivals when compared to 385,531 arrivals in 2015.For a consecutive year, the destination recorded growth in each month of the year and within the overwhelming majority of its major source markets. The growth rate ranged from a 27.4 percent increase in stopover arrivals recorded in September to a 7.5 percent increase in December of 2016.  Lead by a strong first half, the destination welcomed 137, 641 stopover arrivals in the first quarter, an 18.5 percent increase in stopover arrivals when compared to the same period in 2015. Similarly the second quarter saw a 22 percent increase in stopover arrivals when compared to the same periods in 2015, welcoming 121,413 stopovers. The month of March saw 50,913 stopover arrivals, the most stopover arrivals of any month in 2016.According to the recently released State of The Industry Report 2016 from the CTO, tourist arrivals among the destinations showed uneven growth. Of the 28 Caribbean destinations reporting data for varying periods between January and December, the Turks and Caicos Islands’ 17.5 percent increase in stopover arrivals lead the region. Besides our destination, 4 countries, Belize, Cuba, Guyana and Bermuda reported double digit growth rates. Six destinations experienced declines in stopover arrivals.Major Market TrendsOn par with the rest of the Caribbean, our destination’s strong performance in 2016 was primarily supported by the sustained economic growth and relatively low oil prices in the United States, our leading source market. Stopover arrivals from the United States in 2016 surged by 16 percent in comparison to 2015. The total number of stopover arrivals from the United States in 2016 was 365,854. Contributing factors to this performance includes greater accessibility to the destination, frequency of flights from most major gateways in the United States, and increased direct airlift to the destination.Regionally there were over 14.6 million visitors from the U.S. according to CTO’s report, 3.5 percent more than the previous year.  CTO attributed the region’s performance to solid economic growth, a low unemployment rate, and high consumer confidence in the U.S.  Of the 28 destinations in the region reporting data, the Turks and Caicos Islands was among one of seven destinations recording double digit increases within the period, outdone only by Belize in the U.S. market. The other destinations included Bermuda, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Grenada and Montserrat. Six destinations recorded declines in stopover arrivals from the United States.While Canadian arrivals to the Caribbean fell by 3.4 percent in 2016, the Turks and Caicos Islands recorded a tremendous 23.2 percent growth in the Canadian market with 44,974 arrivals.  More than 70 percent of the reporting destinations saw decreases in this market. According to CTO, a weak currency and sluggish first half economic output are among the contributing factors to the decline in Canadian trips to the Caribbean.For the consecutive year, the Turks and Caicos Islands recorded the highest growth from the European market within the Caribbean region. Arrivals from the European totaled 14,556 and improved by 27.7 percent year-over-year, the strongest growth among the destination’s major markets. Stopover arrivals from the United Kingdom grew by 40.5 percent year-over year. Similarly, stopover arrivals from Italy and France also saw continual growth recording increases of 33.2 percent and 22.3 percent year-over-year, respectively.  Combined, the destination welcomed 14,556 stopovers from the European market in 2016, up from 11,403 stopovers in 2015. A closer examination of stopover arrivals to the destination from the European market reveals 8,991 arrivals from the United Kingdom; 1,960 arrivals from Italy; 1,256 arrivals from France; 363 arrivals from Germany and a collective 1,986 arrivals from other European nations including Ireland, Luxemburg, Spain, Switzerland, etc.Similarly, arrivals from the European market showed the strongest growth among the main markets in the Caribbean region. According to CTO, arrivals from the European market to the region totaled 5.6 million and improved by 11.4 percent, notwithstanding terrorist attacks in some countries, the fears and fallouts of Brexit, and the mixed economic outcomes across Europe. 72 percent of the reporting destinations registered increase in arrivals from the European market with St. Maarten, Guyana and Anguilla joining the Turks and Caicos Islands as top performing destinations.Stopover arrivals to the destination from Brazil declined by 7.5 percent year-over-year, totaling 1,264 arrivals. The trend was the same regionally, as the Caribbean received 11 percent fewer arrivals from Latin America in 2016 compared to 2015.Intra-regional travel has become a recent trend to the Turks and Caicos Islands due to destination’s rising popularity as an accessible hub for the best interconnectivity between the Caribbean islands. Travelers can access regional flight services from Providenciales, to multiple destinations in Antigua, The Bahamas, British Virgin Islands, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Jamaica and Puerto Rico. In 2016 the destination welcomed 20,486 stopover arrivals from the Caribbean, a 21.3 percent growth rate year-over-year.According to CTO, 2016 was another record-breaking year for Caribbean intra-regional travel, as arrivals rose by 3.6 percent for a consecutive year of growth, registering just over 1.7 million trips. Guyana, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, and the Turks and Caicos Islands were the top performing destinations reporting robust double-digit growth.  6,478 stopover arrivals visited the destination from the rest of the world, including countries in Asia, Africa and the Pacific.Cruise ArrivalsWhile the destination continued to boost its stopover arrivals in 2016, for a consecutive year cruise arrivals took a downturn.  The Grand Turk Cruise Center greeted a total of 846,963 cruise passengers, an 8.9 percent decline in cruise passengers year-over-year. Similarly, for a consecutive year the Cruise Center also welcomed fewer ships, hosting 284 compared to 317 ship calls in 2014; this marked a 10.4 percent decline in ship calls year-over-year.The month of March showed the most significant growth rate in cruise passengers and ship calls to the Grand Turk Cruise Center, recording an increase of 25.6 percent and 13.3 percent respectively.  The month of December saw a total of 97,799 cruise passenger arrivals, the most arrivals in any given month of the year, a 4.8 percent increase when compared to 2014 despite a 2.8 percent decline in ship calls for the month. Minor increases in cruise passenger arrivals were also recorded in the months of April, May, August and September despite having consistent or fewer ship calls when compared to the same periods in 2015.October saw the largest decline in cruise passenger arrivals and ship calls to the destination helped by an active 2016 hurricane season. While the Turks and Caicos Islands was spared the wrath of Hurricane Matthew, regional neighbors sharing the same itineraries as Grand Turk such as the Dominican Republic, Haiti and The Bahamas were significantly damaged. Cruise passenger arrivals to Grand Turk decreased by 38.9 percent while ship calls were down by 44 percent in the month of October.According to CTO’s report, 2016 was a record-breaking year for Caribbean cruising as cruise passenger arrivals to the region grew by 1.3 percent to reach 26.3 million. Overall 48 percent of the reporting Caribbean destinations registered growth with the best performances in the Dominican Republic, the British Virgin Islands and Grenada. Belize became the eighth Caribbean destination to ever reach the benchmark of 1 million cruise passenger arrivals.There is no secret that grave challenges continue to threaten the cruise industry in Grand Turk. The ports underperformance for the consecutive year is an indication that an agreeable solution to a list of unresolved matters between Carnival Cruise Lines, operators of the Grand Turk Cruise Center, and the Turks and Caicos Government must be reached in a timely manner in order for Grand Turk to rebound.Outlook2016 was undoubtedly another successful year for the main revenue earner and top industry in the Turks and Caicos Islands despite the raise in the level of global uncertainty.  While global uncertainty such as the implications of Brexit or any unforeseen events could still impact the performance of tourism in 2017 and beyond, the outlook for the destination remains strong.  The Turks and Caicos Islands recently saw the debut of several new hotels in winter 2017, led by the ultra-luxurious resort The Shore Club and the boutique offerings of Beach Enclave North Shore both on Providenciales, as well as, the barefoot luxury of Sailrock resort on the undeveloped island of South Caicos. These new resort openings coupled with the recent announcements of Blue Cay Estate, a new luxury waterfront villa collection to be operated by the award-winning Grace Bay Resorts slated for first phase completion in mid-2017 and the debut of Beach Enclave Long Bay expected in late 2017, are welcome increases to the room inventory of the destination.The Turks and Caicos Islands recently received a boost in its accessibility for potential visitors in mid-December 2016 as United Airlines introduced a nonstop flight on Saturdays from Washington D.C. to Providenciales, opening a new gateway to the destination.The Turks and Caicos Tourist Board and its partners will continue to increase the destination’s presence within the market place by embarking on a series of travel and trade shows. Traditional and non-traditional media strategies, sponsorships, and promotional events in the United States, Canada, Europe and Latin America will also continue. The Board has renewed its commitment to working with wholesalers, hotel partners, airlines and cruise to sell the destination. In addition, the Turks and Caicos Islands is working to expand its hotel and tourism product beyond the traditional hub of Providenciales and Grace Bay Beach to the other beautiful islands, as demand for additional accommodation, attractions, and niche offerings has increased.Source of Data:  Sabre ADI System , Grand Turk Cruise Center and Provo Air CenterSource of Publication:  Turks & Caicos Islands Tourist Board TCI Tourism Arrivals down, long stay visitors up #TCITourismStatistics2016  #TourisminTCI  #visitTurksandCaicos Grace Bay now No. 2 Best in the World Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:#TCITourismStatistics2016, #TourisminTCI, #visitTurksandCaicoslast_img read more

Isco and Asensio vindicate themselves vs Melilla

first_imgStellar performances from Isco and Asensio against Melilla in Copa del Rey, Vinicius Junior was also on point with 1 goal and 1 assist.For Isco and Asensio, things were starting to get a little complicated under new manager Santiago Solari and they desperately needed a great performance in order to gain back a little confidence in their game.Isco’s case was quite more pressing as he had been constantly scrutinized for not having a good relationship with Santiago Solari, Asensio’s case was slightly less concerning as he was only underperforming since the start of the season but didn’t really have any problems with the new manager.This Thursday against Melilla, was a perfect opportunity for both players to get back on track and they didn’t disappoint.It was a relatively easy opponent after they were able to win the first Copa del Rey match with a convincing 4-0 victory, but Real was playing at the Bernabeu and they really wanted to make a good impression with the fans.Asensio started the goal-fest with a great solo goal after 30 minutes of the first half had passed, then Vinicius made his appearance two minutes later to assist Marco from the left flank and let Real Madrid take a 2-0 lead.👏 Congratulations to @Frangarcia_11 and @Alvaro10fidalgo on making their official first-team debuts! Well played, guys! #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/Y467DiABp8— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) December 6, 2018Just before the 40th minute of the game, Asensio was able to confirm his Player of the Match status with an assist to Javi Sanchez.Marco delivered two goals and one assist in the span of only six minutes, this was more than enough for Real Madrid to completely shut down any hopes Melilla had to turn the game around.But the match was still on the first half, it was far from over and we still had at least three more goals to watch.Isco hadn’t appeared yet, but he did it in the 47th minute with a beautiful long-range goal that gave Los Blancos their fourth of the night and a breath of fresh air to Isco who barely celebrated scoring this goal.Throughout the second half, it was Vinicius tho took the lead of all offensive plays with his explosive dribbling coming from the left flank.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.The Brazilian was determined to score his goal, which came fifteen minutes away from the final whistle after a double effort because they goalkeeper was able to deflect his first shot.‘Vinny’ was finally able to get a proper goal, unlike the one he got the first time through a rebound.⏸ HT: @realmadrid 3-0 @UDMelilla (agg. 7-0)⚽ @marcoasensio10 33′, 35′, @javisf5 39’#RMCopa | #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/wSTXPbQ4Em— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) December 6, 2018For Melilla, playing this stage of the Copa del Rey was already a major achievement. They had already received Real Madrid’s visit a couple of weeks back and all the players wanted was to play at the Santiago Bernabeu, they never really expected to upset Los Blancos.Any goal they scored against Real Madrid would be celebrated as if they had already won the title itself, the moment finally came through Qasmi and all the players ended up very grateful for the massive opportunity.At the end of the match, Isco was able to get his second goal that gave Real Madrid a 6-1 victory with an aggregate 10-1 in total.This victory puts both Asensio and Isco back in Solari’s radar, they really needed this performance in order to shake off the bad luck they had attracted to themselves in the last few months.Solari proved that he was really happy with not only the result, but also the fact that he seems to have recovered two of his most important players for Real Madrid.📸 Six of the best at the Bernabéu this afternoon as we ease through to the next round of the Copa del Rey! #RMCopa pic.twitter.com/pZDtRFAKb5— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) December 6, 2018Which goal was your favorite from Real Madrid’s 6-1 victory against Melilla?
