Experience the World: Culture & Education at the Dinner Table

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ahnnyeonghase-yo. Hej. Namaste. Hello. A greeting in any language implies the same thing; yet what makes each of them unique is the culture surrounding these everyday words. And each of these cultures are breathtaking to get to know; providing a spark of inspiration and warmth in our lives. ETC offers such an opportunity – hosting a student would mean to take in an international student for a brief term as a member of the family. Host families and students are encouraged to engage with each other as warmly and welcoming as possible; exchanging their respective cultures through pictures, stories, food, and affection.

The philosophy of ETC is to promote international goodwill and understanding through international student exchange experiences. It is our staunch belief that participating as a host to a student needing a home to stay will foster understanding and friendship between international cultures.

Education at the Dinner Table:
While in school one may memorize the various gendered pronouns of the Spanish language, or learn how to differentiate between the many homophones present in the English language; true learning of culture and life happens socially. This is especially true for life at home – whether it be through conversation at the dinner table, a small thank you whilst sharing the chores, or through showing each other humorous videos, daily life in a host family will impact the core of each exchange student and expand their worldview. These lessons are not only restricted to the student; families as well will learn about the many nuances present in a strange culture, and change the way they perceive their world.

Travelling Without Leaving Home:
A ticket to Iceland may be out of your price range; a week in Japan may be unthinkable when considering how expensive hotels are. Hosting negates all of these costs and difficulties that arise from planning a trip abroad, as families are allowed to bring a small part of this foreign culture straight into their living room. No longer will Korea or Honduras be a mere name on the map, but a dear second home that elicits countless warm memories spent with your student.

Foreign Partners:
ETC closely works with carefully screened, experienced agents that work diligently in each of the countries that offer students for hosting. Each agent painstakingly screens and examines each of the students and offers them with an orientation so that the students will be able to adjust to the United States with minimal difficulty. When the student finally arrives stateside, our partner organizations will always be available to act as a friendly liaison and counselor between the host family, ETC, and the student’s natural parents.

Special Activities:
We are highly involved with each of the host families and students that are part of the ETC family. ETC hosts fall welcome parties, monthly local activities, themed holiday parties, five (optional) trips every year, and a spring farewell picnic – all of which are available to ETC Local Coordinators, host families, and students, as a way to encourage bonding within a family-like atmosphere.

American Public High Schools:
ETC maintains a strict standard for those students who will be attending American public high schools on a J-1 visa. Each student will be placed within such a high school in their homestay community and will be required to take classes in English and American History or Civics. They are not permitted to take ESL or English immersion classes. Those students who are unable to maintain a C average are required to hire a tutor at their own expense.

Financial Responsibilities:
Host families are not required to take on the burden of the student’s financial expenses. Every student possesses comprehensive medical insurance, and are required to pay for their own personal expenses, which include but are not limited to school activity charges, class fees, clothing expenses, travel expenses, entertainment allowances, bus passes, long distance phone charges, and lunches purchased at the school. Each host family is considered as a volunteer, and are not expected to pay for such student expenses.

Learning About the World, at Home:
Each ETC foreign exchange student is brave and willing to leave family and friends for nearly ten months to broaden their horizons and learn about the culture of the United States. By considering a new short term addition to the family, host families can help courageous students out immensely, whilst learning similar things to the student themselves.

ETC is now accepting host family applications for both five-month and ten-month students. Each student speaks a proficient level of English, has been carefully screened, and will attend the host family’s local high school. Each student arrives fully covered by medical insurance and possesses their own spending money.

About Education, Travel & Culture:
Education, Travel & Culture is a non-profit [501 (c)(3)] educational exchange organization. Its purpose is to promote international understanding and goodwill by providing high quality educational and cultural exchange programs in the United States and abroad. ETC provides inbound program opportunities for high school students throughout the world to study in an American high school and live with an American family.

Antigua and Barbuda bring English Harbour to Sag Harbor

The Hamptons is an important community and market for Antigua and Barbuda, particularly as it shares many of qualities and aesthetics.”

— Hon. Asot A. Michael, Minister of Tourism

NEW YORK, NY, USA, July 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Antigua and Barbuda brought “English Harbour to Sag Harbor,” in the Hamptons over the course of the weekend through various events to ultimately raise visibility of the twin island nation to this influential community, and inspire many to visit. The weekend began with a successful evening with the Hampton elite to establish connections with the influencers and celebrities, on July 21 at leading restaurant, The Palm East Hampton. The event was held to share the dynamic vision of the tourism industry to transform the twin island nation into an economic powerhouse as well as having the guests learn about Antigua and Barbuda, the culture, and various opportunities for investment with the rapid growth.

Sag Harbor is a flagship sailing community, as is English Harbour in Antigua and Barbuda, playing host to the Caribbean’s most exciting regatta, Antigua Sailing Week, inspiring the country to host the third Antigua Barbuda Hamptons Challenge Regatta on Saturday, July 22. The Antigua Barbuda Hamptons Challenge offers the biggest sailing prize in the Northeast with the winning Captain and Crew of 5 winning an all-expense paid trip to sail in Antigua Sailing Week 2018.

Minister of Tourism, Economic Development, Investment and Energy, Asot Michael addressing the crowd at the Awards Cocktail and Antigua Barbuda Hamptons Challenge.

To offer Sag Harbor a taste of the excitement of the Challenge, as well as a slice of Caribbean culture through music and food, Antigua and Barbuda hosted a Caribbean Cocktail Awards Party at Havens Beach. The cocktail party featured a live band from Antigua, as well as food and drinks inspired by the destination. All of the attendees were provided gifts and as an added bonus, the event featured a Chinese auction, with many amazing prizes including a 5-night/5-day stay at a 5-star luxury property in Antigua, the Inn at English Harbour. During the evening, the prize for the race was turned into a raffle for participants as adverse weather forced organizers to abandon the race. Minister Michael chose the winners with the help of CEO, of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority, Colin James.

Antigua and Barbuda was also a headline participant of the RAND Aston Martin Private Brunch in the Hamptons on Saturday, July 22, at a private estate in the Hamptons. The event showcased the latest models from Aston Martin with exclusive luxury brands, including Antigua and Barbuda. Guests were treated to two signature cocktails to provide a slice of Antigua and Barbuda flavor with, “Ticket to Paradise,” and “Romance in the Caribbean,” featuring award-winning Antigua rum, English Harbour.

“The Hamptons is an important community and market for Antigua and Barbuda, particularly as it shares many of qualities and aesthetics. Through these various events across the Hamptons this weekend, we’ve been able to raise visibility for our wonderful twin island destination, building meaningful connections, and inspiring all to visit and discover firsthand everything we have to offer: from our stunning 365 beaches, premiere sailing facilities, inspiring gastronomy, and hands down the best hospitality bar none. We look forward to greeting them in Antigua and Barbuda over the coming weeks and months and providing them all unforgettable experiences,” said the Honorable Asot A. Michael, Minister of Tourism, Economic Development, Investment and Energy at the evening.

Added destinations prove increased interest in region by worldwide travelers

No matter how many times onboard a luxury yacht, the feeling is always wonderful.”

— James Knight

LA PAZ, BCS, MEXICO, July 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Day Yacht Charters, Inc., whose growth in the past 15 years has made it one of the most important yacht rental brokers in the world, today announces that two more important destinations have been added to its network of luxury yacht charter locations. These destinations are La Paz and Cabo San Lucas Day Yacht Charters, both in Baja California Sur, Mexico. Also, Day Yacht Charters has moved its headquarters and base of operations to La Paz, BCS Mexico.
La Paz Mexico Luxury Yacht Charters Boat Rentals

The addition of these two new destinations virtually completes a circuit of Mexican Day Yacht Charters, Inc. locations in Mexico ranging all along the Pacific and Gulf coasts and on down to Cancun, the Riviera Maya and the island of Cozumel. Those are added to the other Caribbean and western Atlantic destinations like the Bahamas, the Grand Cayman Islands, Puerto Rico and Seattle yacht charters and boat rentals.

La Paz, the capital city of the state of Baja California Sur, is an important location for luxury yacht charters in that it has grown significantly in recent years, especially since famed American author John Steinbeck visited it and wrote about it in 1940. It has become a major destination for many celebrities of the entertainment and business world as well, some of whom have chosen it over Caribbean destinations like St. Bart’s. For instance, Oscar-winning film producer and director Steven Spielberg’s huge yacht often can be seen anchored in the Bay of La Paz and singer, Lady Gaga, has been seen shopping there. It is a privileged location sitting right on the bay from which it gets its name and, also, hard by the Gulf of California, better known as the Sea of Cortez. Los Cabos at the southern end of BCS also faces the Sea of Cortez. These two locations along with Cancun and the Riviera Maya are among the fastest-growing luxury vacation destinations in the world making them ideal for yacht charters.
Day Yacht Charters, Inc. has gained its unparalleled reputation because of the personalized service it offers its charter customers as well as its wide range of offerings in terms of rentals. Those interested can charter yachts of all sizes, with captain and crew or just captain for a day, several days, a week or more. Most importantly, the entire focus of Day Yacht Charters, Inc. is that its clients enjoy the most memorable experience possible aboard the most secure vessel chosen.
“We believe that there is nothing in the world that can match the experience of sailing aboard a comfortable and luxurious yacht,” says Esteban, founder and CEO of Day Yacht Charters, Inc. “And we aim to make that memorable experience as widely available as possible. In addition to the comfort provided on the yachts chartered, we offer such things as top notch chefs preparing true gastronomic delights and other such optional amenities.”

One such option that Day Yacht Charters, Inc. offers is a wedding package. Destination weddings, referred to in the industry as those taking place 50 miles or more from the home of the couple who will be exchanging vows, represent one of the fastest growing segments of the tourism industry. Chartering a yacht on which to conduct the ceremony, reception and, perhaps, even the honeymoon can provide for beautiful memories and an exceptional wedding photo album. The long years of experience of Day Yacht Charters, Inc. in providing wedding packages ensures that the couple and their wedding party will enjoy something really special. Esteban and his staff will make certain that all of the details, legal and otherwise, are properly handled.

Chartering a luxury yacht through Day Yacht Charters really is a relatively simple matter. The first thing, of course, is to choose a destination from the many that the company services. By visiting our website DayYachtCharters.com you can see the list of destinations along with pictures and video as well as of the some of the yachts available. Once you have made that choice the next is to determine the length of time for which you would like to charter the vessel. As mentioned, Day Yacht Charters, Inc. offers a wide range of options where this is concerned, from one day charters to those lasting a week or more. The prices for every option are clearly designated for your choice. In many cases, depending on the size of the party that will be occupying the yacht, a charter with all of the luxury amenities provided can prove less expensive than booking a luxury hotel room at the same destination.

Once you have made your choice and placed your deposit, Day Yacht Charters, Inc. will contact the yacht owners and operators at the chosen destination to make certain that all will be ready for your arrival. You will be met and taken aboard with the captain and/or crew providing you with a tour of the vessel and the amenities you have chosen to make certain that everything is in order. Final payment will have to have been arranged by the time of your arrival.

Then all you will have to do is to sit back in the comfort of the luxury yacht and get ready to enjoy an incredible experience, one that you will remember for all of your life.

Day Yacht Charters, Inc. can be contacted by phone at: +1 305 515-4735 Or by email at: info@DayYachtCharters.com
You also can initiate the process by following the instructions on our website.
We invite you to charter one of our beautiful, luxurious yachts at any of our destinations including our two new ones at La Paz or Los Cabos, BCS. We promise you will have the time of your life.

Leisure Boat Market Analysis 2017 (By Segment, Key Players and Applications) and Forecasts

Leisure Boat 2017 Global Market Challenge, Driver, Trends & Forecast

PUNE, INDIA, July 31, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pune, India, 31st July 2017: WiseGuyReports announced addition of new report, titled “Global Leisure Boat Market Report: 2016 Edition”.

A pleasure boat or pleasure craft is a boat/craft usually deployed for personal, family, and at times sportsmanlike recreation. Basically, it is a large motorboat with a cabin and plumbing and other amenities required for living on board. Characteristically, such watercrafts are motorized and find use in holidays on a river, lake, canal or waterway. Normally, pleasure boats are kept at a marina. In year 2009 when the leisure boating industry revived from recession and gained its momentum, there was a rapid trudge in the number of leisure boats sold. Since then, there have been fluctuations in the industry.

North America and Europe are the largest producers and consumers of the boating market. In North America, the US holds the largest share of recreational boat market. Belgium, Croatia, Czech Republic and Germany are some of the major recreational boating markets in European region. The share of recreational boating market is expected to grow at higher rate in Europe as compared to North America.

GET SAMPLE REPORT @ https://www.wiseguyreports.com/sample-request/1615766-global-leisure-boat-market-report-2016-edition

Industrial growth in these economies and hence globally is driven by increasing GDP levels, increasing volumes of international tourism coupled with rise in disposable incomes, improving adult participation in recreational boating activities. Decreasing fuel prices globally also promote the growth of boating operators throughout the world. Despite the existence of various growth drivers, there are certain challenges faced by the industry including environmental concerns, impacts of adverse weather conditions like floods, drought, unreasonably hot or cold weather, shortage of boat moorings and contention from other leisure activity sources which can potentially hinder the growth of the industry.

The report, “Global Leisure Boat Market Report: 2016 Edition” prudently analyzes the development of the respective market, with a focus on regions including Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Croatia, Belgium and Czech Republic. The major trends, growth drivers as well as issues being faced by the industry are being presented in this report.

Landscape at the heart of Rushden Lakes retail scheme

Nature meets retail at pioneering Rushden Lakes shopping and leisure scheme

The scheme is genuinely unique and sets the benchmark for experiential retail development with nature at its heart.”

— Richard Willmott

WINCHESTER, HAMPSHIRE , UNITED KINGDOM , July 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ —
The UK’s first retail scheme to offer both shopping alongside more unusual activities such as birdwatching in nationally important wetlands has opened. Situated in the Nene Valley, Northampton, the shopping and leisure scheme combines shopping and restaurants with extensive opportunities for outdoor activities within the rich natural habitats of the surrounding wildlife reserves.

Comprising approximately 400,000 sq ft of new retail and restaurant accommodation (phase 1), the former gravel extraction pit includes a square mile of lake and SSSI woodland, a boathouse and boardwalk with alfresco waterside dining, wet play area, central water feature and rill. Up to 5 million people are expected to flock to the scheme in the first year and admire the lakeside setting which is home to over 20,000 migrating birds.

Lead project Landscape Architect Richard Willmott said: ‘The scheme is genuinely unique and sets the benchmark for experiential retail development with nature at its heart. The external elements have been designed to sensitively integrate into their context and landscape and include many bespoke features such as fluid tessellated paving patterns, pre-cast furniture and a central boulevard water feature. The robust language of materials and detailing are intended to reflect the industrial heritage of the site. A significant amount of external space and investment is devoted to public areas, enhancing the attraction of the development and providing a series of distinctive spaces.’

Formerly a derelict and run down site which provided unsecurable access to fly tippers, motorbikes and 4x4s with associated damage to the SSSI and RAMSAR designated wetland and woodland, the development of the site has created a symbiotic partnership with the adjacent reserves. Significant funding for improvements to the reserves, increased public access and ongoing maintenance has resulted from the development, while the setting enhances the customer experience and affords unique leisure opportunities and access to the wider Nene Valley.

World Premiere in North Carolina August 10

WRIGHTSVILLE BEACH, NC, USA, July 27, 2017 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Hero Effect, a one-hour documentary-series on the Oprah Winfrey Network, spotlights North Carolina’s Indo Jax Surf Charities on Sat., Aug. 12, at 10 AM. A world premiere and celebration will be in Wrightsville Beach on Thursday, Aug. 10, from 6 ‘til 9 PM, hosted and contributed by Blockade Runner Beach Resort.

Shot on-location in Wrightsville Beach and co-hosted by Super Bowl Champ Donald Driver and actress Emily Wilson, this episode documents a visually impaired surf camp, one in a roster of free camps designed by founder Jack Viorel to build self-esteem and empower medically fragile, special needs, and disadvantaged children.

The Hero Effect series was made in partnership with United Way Worldwide and shot in ten different communities across the United States. Available in over 80-million homes via OWN, each episode highlights a real-life story, showing the lives of ordinary people making extraordinary differences in their communities.

“Indo Jax Surf Charities uses the ocean as a classroom and surfing as a learning tool,” said Viorel. “We believe the ocean has unique healing properties with an ever-changing, unpredictable environment.

“Getting into the ocean and learning to surf, particularly special needs children, is a life-long lesson about stepping out of your comfort zone, into unpredictability, and removing limitations. Everything in life has a bit of fear. We teach the kids that it’s okay to be afraid.

“Our programs build higher self-confidence and teach a system children can apply to any situation or hurdle in the future. They leave with a formula to be more successful, conquer more challenges, and the ability to deal with fear,” said Viorel.

“I encourage anybody thinking about surf camp to go for it,” said Eric Stanley, parent of 11-year old Jaylen, who is unable to see and is courageously battling Juvenile Batten disease. “Jack and his team are great. They’re very patient and know how to work with kids. A parent does not have to worry…”

With programs in North Carolina, California, Nicaragua and India, the Indo Jax schedule includes camps specially formatted for autism, visual impairment, childhood cancer, cystic fibrosis, Boys and Girls Clubs, Children of Belarus, the Boys and Girls Home of Lake Waccamaw, inclusion camps, and special needs camps.

In 2017, Indo Jax Surf Charities will serve and assist about 1,000 children, at no charge. “We take on the responsibility of raising the money,” said Viorel. “Most families with medically fragile, special needs, or at-risk children are struggling to make ends meet.”

Contributions from individuals, businesses, foundations and corporate sponsors fund the surf camp programs. “United Health Care has supported the program for three years, The Jordan Spieth Foundation came on board last year, and this year Live Oak Bank joined the team,” said Viorel. “Blockade Runner Beach Resort has been a solid supporter.”
