Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan’s opening partnership lay the foundation for India’s run chase in the third T20I against Australia on Sunday which was then followed by a trademark knock from captain Virat Kohli as the visitors defeated the hosts to draw the three-match series in Sydney.India rode on a 67-run partnership from Rohit (23) and Dhawan (41) at the top to chase down 165 with Kohli adding the finishing touches with an unbeaten 61 off 41 balls.The openers scored the runs in just 33 balls which brought down the run-rate and made it easier for the others to follow.Kohli, who hit the winning runs, came in the sixth over when India were 67/1 and made sure his team crossed the line well in time to deny the hosts a series win.

Overall, skill wise, we were better on the day than Australia. When our openers get into the zone they’re difficult to stop. I come in at three and attempt to take us home,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.advertisementIndia vs Australia Highlights, 3rd T20I: Kohli’s unbeaten 61 helps India level seriesKohli’s knock was laced with four boundaries and a couple of sixes. He was involved in a crucial 60-run partnership with Dinesh Karthik, who provided valuable support with his unbeaten 18-ball 22 runs.”We thought the wicket slowed down with the old ball. That’s how T20 cricket goes. You lose momentum, you gain it. I think DK (Dinesh Karthik) showed great composure at the death along with me stringing a partnership to get us home,” Kohli added.Sydney T20I: Krunal Pandya records best T20I bowling figures by a spinner in AustraliaBefore the batsmen came to the party, it was India’s spinners who strangled Australia and restricted them to 164 for 6 after Aaron Finch won the toss and opted to bat.Kohli reserved special praise for the bowlers, especially Krunal Pandya, who took career-best figures of 4 for 36 while Kuldeep Yadav returned 1 for 19 in 4 overs.India vs Australia 2nd T20I at Sydney: As it happened”I thought with the ball we were more professional today.

Qarabag 0 Chelsea 4: Hazard, Willian lead Blues into last 16 Joe Wright Last updated 1 year ago 02:48 11/23/17 Getty Images Eden Hazard, Willian and Cesc Fabregas scored to send Chelsea into the knockout phase of the Champions League with a 4-0 win over Qarabag. Chelsea booked their place in the Champions League’s round of 16 with a comfortable 4-0 win over 10-man Qarabag on Wednesday.Eden Hazard, Cesc Fabregas and a double from Willian sealed the three points for Antonio Conte’s side in Baku and ensure they will progress to the knockout phase of the competition.Qarabag, thrashed 6-0 in the reverse fixture at Stamford Bridge in September, started well in front of their noisy home support but were left facing a huge challenge when captain Rasad Sadiqov was sent off for bringing down Willian in the penalty area.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Hazard, starting as a false nine as Conte left Alvaro Morata on the bench, tucked home the spot-kick for his third goal in the group stage and produced a clever assist for Willian to make it 2-0 15 minutes later.The remainder of the match was played at a procession pace, as Chelsea looked to conserve energy for Saturday’s Premier League clash with Liverpool, but Fabregas added a third with 17 minutes left to play courtesy of another precise effort from 12 yards before Willian lashed home a fine fourth.The result sends the English champions through and puts them two points clear at the top of Group C ahead of Atletico Madrid’s clash with Roma, while Qarabag must hope for a favour from the Italians to preserve their hopes of snatching a Europa League spot on matchday six.1 – Eden Hazard has both scored and assisted in a single Champions League game for the first time in his career.

Devil. pic.twitter.com/lDeiUUxmam — OptaJohan (@OptaJohan) November 22, 2017 It might have been a controversial way to break the deadlock but there was nothing questionable about Chelsea’s second. Pedro, Willian and Hazard combined following a Cesc Fabregas ball forward, the move ending with Hazard backheeling into Willian’s path, and the Brazilian made no mistake with a low finish from just inside the area.Conte resisted the temptation to make changes at half-time but Chelsea looked keen to kill off the contest as soon as possible, with Sehic making a good save to deny Pedro one-on-one after a fine lofted pass from Fabregas.Hazard was then denied by a fine one-handed save before he departed to a rousing reception from the travelling Chelsea fans, as Conte opted to give Morata a 25-minute run-out.The Spain striker missed a great chance to get on the scoresheet, dragging a shot inches wide of the left-hand post from the edge of the six-yard box, and he was denied by the offside flag barely a minute later after tapping in Cesar Azpilicueta ‘s lay-off.Fabregas did manage to get Chelsea a third goal, though, to cap an efficient outing from Conte’s side.Referee Jorge Sousa adjudged Medvedev to have pulled Willian’s shirt into the penalty area, despite the full-back’s protests that contact stopped before they crossed the 18-yard line, allowing the former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder to sweep the ball into the bottom corner after his first effort was ruled out for encroachment.Willian completed a superb individual display with his second goal five minutes from the end of normal time, collecting Pedro’s pass before lashing beyond Sehic from 20 yards to send Chelsea through with a little bit of swagger.

Just over $8 million has been allocated in the 2013/14 Estimates of Expenditure, currently before the House of Representatives, to fund the Integrated Management of the Yallahs/Hope River Watershed Management Area Project, in the Ministry of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change. The undertaking, being implemented by the National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA), aims to reduce the pressure on natural resources in the Yallahs River and Hope River Watershed of the Blue Mountains, by increasing the practice of sustainable land management (SLM). This is expected to yield improved management of biological diversity and enhanced flow of ecosystem services that sustain the livelihood of local residents. Activities expected to be completed this year include: establishment of a Project Management Unit; and outline of management framework for the integrated aspects of the project. As at February 2013, technical documents were prepared in relation to: agro forestry and biology, biodiversity, economics of natural resources, institutional framework for financial management, rural development; communication, hydrology and carbon sequestration. The programme, which began in September, 2012 is slated to end in August 2016. By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporter
New Delhi: Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman Friday announced a new scheme to promote processing in fishery sector and allocated an estimated Rs 3,737 crore for the newly carved out Ministry of Fisheries, Animal Husbandry and Dairying. Presenting the Union Budget 2019-20 in Parliament, Sitharaman said, “fishing and fishermen communities are closely aligned with farming and are crucial to rural India.” The new scheme, Pradhan Mantri Matsya Sampada Yojana (PMMSY), will be established under the Department of Fisheries for a robust fisheries management framework, she said.

OTTAWA – A recall of a drug used to treat critically ill patients has prompted some Canadian health authorities to begin rationing it for only the most serious cases.Sodium bicarbonate is used to combat buildup of acid in the blood, in open heart surgery, as an antidote to certain poisons, in cases of organ failure, and in some types of cancer chemotherapy.Officials with Alberta Health Services say the province had about a six-to-seven-week supply of injectable sodium bicarbonate when the manufacturer, Pfizer, told them on June 8 about a shortage.Late this week, the company announced it was recalling two lots of vials of the drug due to the potential for microbial contamination, reducing the Alberta supply to just six to seven days.The global supply of the vials has been tight since late May due to manufacturing delays and Health Canada says the recall means that there is now a shortage in Canada and around the world.Health Canada says it is working closely with the company, the provinces and territories as well as other partners and stakeholders to reduce the impact of the shortage on Canadian patients.“We are gathering information about the supply situation and possible mitigation strategies, including alternative sources,” it said Saturday in a release. “Locating alternative supply may be challenging in an international shortage.”There are two injectable sodium bicarbonate drugs authorized in Canada, both supplied by Pfizer — vial format and pre-filled syringes. The recall does not affect the pre-filled syringe format.Hospira, the division of Pfizer that makes the drugs, said in a statement on Thursday that the contamination in sodium bicarbonate and several other products was discovered during a “routine simulation of the manufacturing process” which it said presented the potential for the introduction of microorganisms into the products.It said that no batches of distributed product have been found to actually contain microorganisms, but that contamination remains a possibility.An additional supply of the pre-filled syringes is expected in late July or early August.Mauro Chies, the vice-president for clinical support services with Alberta Health Services, said the province is looking for alternate sources in other countries, and is working with health authorities in other provinces to know how they’re extending their own supplies of the drug.“They’re in the exact same situation as us. They’re calling us asking the same question, ‘What are you guys doing?’” Chies told a telephone news conference Saturday.Hospira said the affected lots were distributed in Canada, the U.S., including Puerto Rico, as well as the Dutch Antilles, Barbados, Philippines, Kuwait, and Singapore from January to June 2017.Chies said there is a possible manufacturer with a supply in Australia and that Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are working to see if it might be able to spare some of the drug.Dr. Francois Belanger, chief medical officer for Alberta Health Services, said the most critical use for sodium bicarbonate is in intensive care units.In other areas, he said there may be alternate therapies.“We’re doing everything, obviously, we can to obtain the drug from various sources. We believe that with the process that we have in prioritizing the use of the drug to critical care units, as well as alternative therapies, that hopefully will extend the availability of the drug,” Belanger said.“We’re working very hard in order to obtain some additional sources and we’re examining all possibilities.”Belanger said some sodium bicarbonate is available in community clinics and officials are working with the Alberta Medical Association to make it available for emergency cases.He said it’s even possible the health agency could make the drug itself.“It’s fairly complicated. It’s not the first option,” Belanger said.
Rabat – Spanish oil company Cepsa and Derhem Holding will create a joint venture in Morocco with the goal of having a network of 100 fuel stations over the next five years.Cepsa set the ambitious goal of taking over 15 percent of the Moroccan fuel station market in the near future, Spanish business outlet El Economista reported December 7.Two months ago, Cepsa expressed its interest in expanding its presence in northern Morocco, a “preferred market for expansion due to its proximity to our refineries on the south coast of Spain.” Read Also: Spain’s CEPSA Oil Company Wants to Expand Presence in Morocco“In July 2018, we established a 50/50 joint venture with a local partner to commence the development of our business in Morocco, with the objective of opening 30 points of sale by 2020, 100 points of sale by 2023 and a 15% market share in the medium-term (by number of service stations),” the Spanish oil company said in a statement on October 2. CEPSA aims to focus on retail, business to business sales, and storage.Taking advantage of its proximity to Morocco, Cepsa can now grow its business by exporting more fuel from its refineries in southern Spain.The Derhem Holding group has been a major fuel distributor in Morocco’s oil industry for 40 years, especially in Morocco’s southern provinces, via its subsidiary Atlas Sahara.Petrosud is currently CEPSA’s only presence in Morocco. Cepsa holds a 35 percent stake in Petrosud, “which is focused on the marketing of marine oil at the port of Agadir.”It will be the first time the company has distribution business outside of Europe.Cepsa’s investment in Morocco will help the company achieve its goal of increasing its number of service stations to 1,940 stations in Europe, the Canary Islands, and Morocco.

“The Secretary-General condemns the large-scale militia attacks in the Jebel Moon area… on 29 and 30 October. The attacks on eight civilian settlements, including a camp harbouring some 3,500 internally displaced persons, caused scores of civilian deaths and forced thousands to flee the area,” Mr. Annan said in a statement attributable to his spokesman.“The Secretary-General is particularly distressed on hearing reports that 27 of those killed were children under the age of 12.”“The Secretary-General calls again in the strongest possible terms on the parties to respect their agreements and the provisions of international humanitarian law. He appeals once more to the Government of Sudan to take all necessary measures to prevent further attacks against civilians, particularly by militia forces.”At least 200,000 people are estimated to have died in Darfur as a result of the conflict between Government forces, allied militias and rebels seeking greater autonomy, and more than 2 million others have been displaced. However the Government has rejected the expansion of the UN Mission in the Sudan (UNMIS) to the troubled region and at present the UN assists an African Union mission there.
The UN Environment Assembly (UNEA) “places environmental concerns on the same footing with those of peace, security, finance, health and trade for the first time,” the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) said in a news release from its headquarters in Kenya. “For many, the creation of UNEA is the coming of age of the environment as a world issue.” Given the wide reach into legislative, financial and development arenas, UNEP has said the body “presents a ground-breaking platform for leadership on global environmental policy.”More than 1, 200 high level participants, including Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and UN General Assembly President John Ashe, are taking part in this week’s meeting of the UNEA, being held under the theme of “A Life of Dignity for All.” “We must seize this historic opportunity here in Nairobi – so close to the Rift Valley, the cradle of mankind – to unite the world in its effort to achieve a course correction and shape a new, more sustainable future for humanity, one in which we live in harmony with the natural world and create a life of dignity for all,” said UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner. For the UN system, the Environment Assembly – which currently plans to meet every two years – embodies the notion that challenges are best addressed and opportunities realized when the community of nations and citizens of the world join forces to promote economic prosperity, social equity, and environmental sustainability in a holistic manner, Mr. Steiner added in his message on the opening.“As such, UNEA is not just an expanded UNEP Governing Council, but symbolizes a fundamental change of scope as the new body plays its newly defined role of serving as the world’s authoritative voice on environmental matters across the UN System,” he said, adding: “Every Member State has a voice in the Environment Assembly on environmental sustainability.”Today’s discussion focused on worsening air quality in African cities, as a result of increasing population, urbanization and motorization, and on sustainable development. Participants throughout the week will discuss a new post-2015 development agenda to succeed the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The Goals, agreed by world leaders at a UN summit in 2000, aim to slash extreme hunger and poverty, cut maternal and infant mortality, combat disease and provide access to universal education and health care, all by the end of 2015. These targets will not be reached in many countries and areas, and will be incorporated in an even more ambitious post-2015 agenda.“Hopefully this week is a week in which key decisions will be made but also an opportunity for debate, for dialogue, for the presentation of cutting edge science, cutting edge research – all of which is crucial in terms of informing policy – innovations, the voice of stakeholders, civil society, the private sector,” Naysan Sahba, UNEP Director for Communications and Public Information told UN Radio in Nairobi. “You get the holistic sense of just what it means to advance the environmental agenda in a meaningful way.”At the assembly, UNEP will launch a new report on South-South Trade and the Green Economy, which the UN agency said will explore the growing movement of development “for the South, by the South.” In addition, a strategic paper on sustainable consumption and production indicators will also be presented this week.The Assembly will also focus on illegal trade in wildlife. UNEP has said it wants to move the discussions past the current attention provided to the poaching crisis facing African elephants and rhinos, particularly in Kenya where the meeting is being held, to addressing a wider range of threats from illegal harvesting and trafficking including timber, fish, tigers, great apes, and a broad range of birds, reptiles, and plants.A joint UNEP-INTERPOL Rapid Response Report is expected to be launched this week, “highlighting the links between environmental crime, insecurity and threats to sustainable development.” Tomorrow, participants will join a global symposium on environmental law, which will include chief justices and attorney generals, as well as civil society. The goal is to raise awareness of environmental law as an indispensable tool on the path towards sustainable development and a Green Economy, according to the UNEP website, and to identify how further development and implementation of environmental law could help to ensure a more just and sustainable society.There will also be a global symposium on financing green economy, with a focus on capital markets and how to mobilize finance for sustainable investments. The creation of UNEA was supported at the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20), held in Brazil in 2012, where world leaders agreed to strengthen and upgrade UNEP through universal membership, increased resources and greater involvement with civil society.
“Greece will not receive any more financial aid if it does not stick to the agreed bailout deal”, European Central Bank policymaker and head of Germany’s Bundesbank Jens Weidmann was quoted as saying on Saturday.He also told Sueddeutsche Zeitung in an interview that an exit from the euro zone would have a bigger impact on Greece than on the rest of the bloc.“For Greece the consequences would be much more grave than for the rest of the euro zone,” he said. “I think it is too simple to think Greece’s problems would be solved by leaving the euro area.”“If Athens does not stand by its word, then that’s a democratic decision. The result is that there is no more basis for further financial aid,” Weidmann said, echoing similar comments from German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle.“The donor countries also have to justify themselves toward their own population,” Weidmann said.The ECB should stick to its mandate of preserving price stability and it would be “dangerous” to change the bank’s mandate, he said. French president-elect Francois Hollande had called for more support for growth from the ECB.Weidmann gave no indication that the ECB would intervene in the bond market again anytime soon, but said it was still too early to withdraw the bank’s emergency support measures – a move that should be discussed nonetheless.The ECB has hardly made use of its bond purchase programme since Mario Draghi took over as president in November and has not bought any bonds for eight weeks in a row despite rising refinancing costs in Spain as it struggles to get its budget under control. “It is clear that the time for the exit has not come yet, but should not be missed either,” Weidmann said.“(The bond buying programme) is dormant, but can be reactivated. That is the situation, but you know my position,” said Weidmann, who opposes the programme, saying it ventures too far into the arena of state financing – a taboo for the ECB.Weidmann was also critical of any possible direct aid for euro zone banks from the European rescue fund.“To communities risks without states giving up national sovereignty – this undermines the foundation for stability,” he said.Source: Reuters Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Banks and other financial institutions have cut credit card interest rates over the last year, but not by as much as mortgage interest rates have fallen.Credit card interest rates have come down by just over half of the cuts in the Reserve Bank’s official cash rate, according to research published in The Journal of the Asia Pacific Economy.Official interest rates have been cut to historic lows of 2.75 per cent but many cards have failed to cut their rates at all.Credit cards users need to shop around carefully to find the best value card for their needs, weighing up the rate on offer, the fees charged and other features such as rewards.Source: Bankheadlines.com.au
After the last two seasons of Fargo, expectations for this third couldn’t have been higher. Maybe that’s why it feels like it’s going through the numbers a little bit this season. Especially coming off of last week’s L.A. adventure, which was just the kind of surprising departure we need to see more of from this series. This week’s episode was undeniably Fargo in every way. That’s not a bad thing, it just feels like we know what to expect now. There were still some surprises, and Billy Bob Thornton’s narration of Peter and the Wolf added a fun new way of thinking about these characters.Peter and the Wolf underscores the entire episode, and each main character is assigned a counterpart from the children’s story. Emmit is the bird, Ray is the duck, Nikki is the cat, Varga is the wolf, Yuria is the blast of the hunter’s shotgun, Sy is grandfather and Gloria, of course, is Peter. Each has their own instruments associated with them. This season is all about telling stories, and this episode focused on musical storytelling. It wasn’t as thoroughly explored as last week’s animated sequences, but it did make this episode more than the next step in the Fargo formula.It did lend a sense of dread to a scene that’s become a Fargo staple. Some of my favorite scenes in the Coen Brothers movie and the last two seasons have been where the policewoman casually questions the man she doesn’t yet fully realize is behind the crime she’s investigating. That first moment where they’re in the same room, when she knows she’s hit on something, but doesn’t know what. And in attempting to distance themselves from their crime, the men generally make fools of themselves, setting off alarm bells where there would otherwise be none. This episode gave us two of those. The first came when Gloria questioned Ray about Maurice. Ray didn’t completely freak out, but he was unusually evasive. Particularly when she mentioned he shared a last name with her late stepdad.Ewan McGregor as Ray Stussy (Photo via FX)The second came when a different officer, Winnie, questioned Sy about a traffic accident in a parking lot. Ray isn’t pressing charges, but the waitress whose car Sy clipped on the way out of the parking lot is. Plus he fled the scene, which is highly illegal. Since the Sy’s Humvee is registered to the company, Winnie wants him to check up on who was driving. That simple question reduces Sy into a puddle of half-sentences and out-of-nowhere hostility. He manages to be a worse liar than William H. Macy’s character in the movie. That’s a feat. There may be a reason beyond guilt that this line of questioning stressed Sy out so much. This is where the Peter and the Wolf characterization comes in. As Winnie is questioning Sy, Yuria (the shotgun) stares at him. There’s no blast yet, but it’s enough to make us think it’s coming. Sy’s desire to spite Ray may end up getting him killed.One big surprise that happened this episode was Ray’s firing. Sy’s photos of him and Nikki together made their way back to his bosses. Since he refuses to claim it’s a one time thing and break off his relationship, he’s let go. Now, it looks like things are going to unravel quickly for Ray. Instead of joining Nikki to meet with the Bridge sponsor, he spends the evening in a bar. That may have doomed their plans to win big on the Bridge circuit. As the couple grows increasingly desperate, their tracks may become harder to cover.David Thewlis as V.M. Varga, Ewan McGregor as Emmit Stussy (Photo via FX)Speaking of which, Ewan McGregor did some amazing acting in the opening moments of this episode. Ray disguises himself as Emmit, intending to steal the stamp from the safe deposit box. Of course, that’s not where Emmit is keeping the stamp. All Ray finds are the cremains of a dog, which he throws in the garbage and uses the bag they were in to carry out $10,001. (The $1 is for parking.) We’re watching McGregor play Ray, play Emmit. Since McGregor plays both roles, this is a challenge we don’t get to see actors attempt that much. It’s fun watching the little ways in which McGregor made his performance in this scene feel just slightly off. Likewise, it’s a testament to his abilities that we recognizes both characters as completely different people, to the point where we can tell when one is dressed like the other. It may be a little gimmicky, but in a season that feels a little too samey, the gimmicks are needed to spice things up.Carrie Coon as Gloria Burgle, Olivia Sandoval as Winnie Lopez (Photo via FX)At the end of the episode, Gloria finally gets a major break in her investigation. Winnie shows up at her house, revealing that her investigation led her to one Emmit Stussy, who lives one town over from where Ennis did. The pieces are starting to fall into place for the police, as everything spirals out of control for the Stussy brothers. Things are likely about to pop off pretty soon. At least, I hope they do. The unusual focus on storytelling this season keeps making me think they’re going to subvert the usual Fargo formula. But we’re four episodes in, and aside from last week’s L.A. detour, they really haven’t. This episode was still a fun, tense and well-written hour of television. I guess it shows how great the first two seasons were that we expect more than that from Fargo. Now, we aren’t even halfway through the season yet, so there’s still plenty of time for the show to surprise us. I just hope it gets there soon.

LumaGEM detects tumors as small as 5 mm in mammographically dense and other difficult-to-image breast tissue. The technology is distinguished from mammography by its ability to visualize tumors surrounded by non-cancerous glandular tissue, which often goes undetected on mammograms. Studies also show MBI also may be superior to mammography for imaging women with difficult-to-detect lobular tumors, scar tissue from previous surgeries, implants and small distant metastases.

<< Previous PostNext Post >> Cindy Sosroutomo Posted by TORONTO – Hurricane Maria was one of the worst natural disasters in recent memory, landing itself in the history books last September as the tenth most intense Atlantic hurricane on record. While some islands were miraculously spared of any damage, others – particularly Dominica and Puerto Rico – weren’t so lucky, with reports of lives lost and widespread devastation.In the case of Puerto Rico, where the Category 4 storm hit landfall on Sept. 20 just two weeks after the passing of Hurricane Irma, the island struggled to recover in the following days, weeks and months. Streets became rivers, entire buildings were decimated, thousands of families were left without homes, cell phone service was limited, power outages lasted for months, and clean water, food and medicine were in short supply. In short, Maria had crippled the island – but it in no way defeated it.Due to the mighty resilience of its people, Puerto Rico slowly but surely picked up the pieces that Maria left in its wake and eventually welcomed back tourists. In December 2017, the destination kicked off its winter season with an official declaration – that it was “open for tourism” – with 75% of hotels back in operation, 4,000 restaurants once again taking orders, and major tourist attractions already cleaned up and restored. By then, all airports were fully operational and 80,000 homeport cruise passengers had embarked from San Juan between October and December.“Some areas were hit harder than others, of course, but even before the holidays major tourist areas were back, with even more so now,” Carla Campos, Active Executive Director of the Puerto Rico Tourism Company (PRTC), tells Travelweek. “And while the airport closed during the storm, it reopened within days, as did the ports on the island.”Since then, tourism and tourism conditions have only gotten better. At last month’s U.S. Travel Association’s IPW 2018 event in Denver, Campos told media that Puerto Rico continues to “make great strides” due to a “comprehensive strategy that has secured a speedy comeback for the island”. She went on to say that an “incredible amount” of cruise passengers were expected during the period of May-June, while air capacity figures will equal those from 2016 by the fall.Despite these claims and the recent rollout of several “myth-busting” videos by PRTC, there’s still the misconception that Puerto Rico isn’t ready to welcome tourists. So we asked Campos to address these myths and ease any lingering concerns travellers may have about the island.More news: Air Canada’s global sales update includes Managing Director, Canada & USA SalesMyth: Puerto Rico’s hotels are damaged beyond repairAs of now, 89% of Puerto Rico’s hotels are open and accepting reservations (130 out of 146 endorsed hotels), with over 11,500 rooms available. Between 3,500 and 4,000 additional rooms will be added to that inventory when renovations are completed. This October, Puerto Rico will welcome several new hotels including The Ritz-Carlton Reserve, El San Juan Hotel and the St. Regis Bahia Beach, while Meliá Coco Beach will open its doors on Nov. 1 and Caribe Hilton on Jan. 1, 2019. Looking ahead, the PRTC reports that 28 new properties totalling 1,300 additional rooms are currently under construction, including ALOFT San Juan Convention Center, ALOFT Ponce and Four Seasons Cayo Largo Resort.Myth: San Juan’s cruise port is still not ready to welcome cruisers“Puerto Rico resumed cruise operations two and a half weeks after Hurricane Maria, and from post-Maria through mid-March we hosted 506,000 cruise passengers, with an additional 519,000 passengers expected in the first half of 2018,” Campos tells Travelweek, noting that’s an increase of 2.5% for the first half of the year and an economic impact of US$107 million.The world’s biggest cruise lines made their return to the island early on, including Royal Caribbean and Carnival, whose Adventure of the Seas and Freedom ships resumed transit calls on Nov. 30 with close to 7,000 cruise passengers onboard. “They were greeted with a warm welcome and Puerto Rican-style festivities, ranging from free salsa classes to rum and coquito tastings, traditional BatuPlena percussion bands, artisan markets, street performers, children’s fairs and more,” said Campos.As further proof that cruise business is “back and stronger than ever”, as recently as mid-May the island received 17,000 cruise passengers in a single day.Puerto Rico is headed toward a strong summer season, says PRTC, with 14 vessels homeporting – four more than last season, including Royal Caribbean’s Freedom of the Seas, the Windstar Pride, Silversea’s Silver Wind and Viking Sea. In total, the 2018/2019 cruising season is expected to witness a record-breaking 1.7 million passengers, which will generate roughly $250 million in revenue for the island.Myth: Airlines have stopped flying to Puerto RicoBy the fall, seat capacity for air access is expected to be back on par with levels from this time last year, when tourism reached its peak. Growth, says PRTC, is driven by newly established routes and frequency, in addition to larger aircrafts resulting in higher seat capacity.At this rate, it’s believed that Puerto Rico has recovered at a faster pace than destinations that have gone through similar situations.More news: Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTMyth: Puerto Rico has permanently closed tourist attractionsThere are more than 184 attractions currently open on the island, not to mention 13 golf courses and 16 casinos. Among those that are open and ready for tourists are Castillo San Cristóbal, Castillo San Felipe del Morro; Cueva Ventana, Plaza Las Américas and Toro Verde.Myth: There is no running water or power in Puerto RicoPower has been largely restored across all of Puerto Rico, says Campos. Currently, the island has 95.20% generation. As for water, 99.28% of San Juan, the capital city, has running water.Myth: Tourist arrivals have taken a turn for the worseOn the contrary. Over the Easter and Passover holidays and U.S. Spring Break, Puerto Rico saw a surge in visitors across the island. Preliminary Spring Break numbers show record-breaking performance amongst the 130 hotels that are open, particularly the Wyndham Rio Mar in Rio Grande, which reached occupancy and overall sales levels never reached before. According to the PRTC, inns and hotels across the island reported close to 100% occupancy levels.In addition, big-ticket events are taking place on schedule; in the first four months of 2018, the island was host to the DIVAS Half Marathon and 5K, a PGATOUR special event, IRONMAN 70.3, and a special MLB series between the Cleveland Indians and the Minnesota Twins. All this, says Campos, reaffirms Puerto Rico’s readiness to host visitors from around the world.“We’ve been encouraging travellers since late December to visit and see first-hand our comeback for themselves,” says Campos. “Alongside the reminder that one of the best ways people can support Puerto Rico is by visiting – staying at hotels, eating at restaurants, enjoying our island’s activities, and buying from local businesses – our ‘We’re open for tourism’ message is being heard loud and clear.” This story originally ran in the June 14, 2018 issue of Travelweek magazine.
