Regensburg Tourism Awarded Green Globe Recertification for Environmentally Friendly Commitment

Regensburg Tourismus GmbH

Green Globe recently recertified Regensburg Tourism in the Business Category for the second consecutive year.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, October 3, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Regensburg Tourismus GmbH (RTG) is the official tourism organization of Regensburg. Founded in April 2005, the organization employs around 60 staff members supported by 100 certified tour guides who cater for tourists, local residents and customers of RTG.

Green Globe recently recertified Regensburg Tourism in the Business Category for the second consecutive year.

The tourism organization has been proactively committed to sustainability since its founding in 2005 and has been an exemplary role model. All events organized by RTG for the World Heritage City meet the strictest environmental requirements. The new Marina Forum Event and Conference Center, designed by RTG on the outskirts of the eastern city center of Regensburg, also enjoys a first-class reputation for its sustainable construction. The organisation aims to promote the sustainable development of tourism in Regensburg and to introduce new actions that will lead to further improvements in the future. For example, a more sensitive approach to problems of over tourism has resulted in the development of low-season offers in order to reduce tourist overcrowding at peak times.

Sustainability in the ecological, economic and social sense

Regensburg Tourismus GmbH considers more than environmental aspects in the context of sustainability. Rather, it is about addressing environmental, economic and social aspects in equal measure. Sabine Thiele, Managing Director of Regensburg Tourism, is pleased to have been honored with the world's first Green Globe Certification and Performance Improvement Program, designed specifically for the travel and tourism industry.

"Green Globe's second certification shows that we have set the right accents with our commitment. Our goal is to set a good example and to motivate our partners and guests to participate. At the same time, we plan and act whenever possible for the benefit of all stakeholders of RTG," said Ms. Thiele.

Birte Besocke, COO at Green Globe is also enthusiastic about this commitment.
"The re-certification is proof of the efforts of Regensburg Tourismus GmbH, the topic of sustainability has been handled at all levels within the organization to implement diversity. Within the two years that RTG has been a Green Globe member, many initiatives have already been implemented that I was able to observe in person. We are therefore very excited about the forthcoming results for 2020, " said Ms. Besocke.

Business travel is even greener

In order to pursue the goals in the best possible way, RTG created the position of Sustainability Advisor in 2011 with a focus on the management of event business. In addition to the ecological aspects, customers from the MICE segment should be introduced to the culture, tradition and history of the UNESCO World Heritage City.

They are introduced to the concept "traditional goes GREEN future". For the Marina Forum, RTG is currently seeking the oldest and internationally most widely used certificate for climate-friendly construction: the BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method).

Based on the new tourism concept, which was passed in 2018, RTG is taking numerous other measures to promote sustainable tourism in a variety of ways. From an ecological point of view, RTG is committed to sustainable mobility for on-site travel and transport and strives for economic benefits. The tourism organization plans to incorporate even more regional products in kitchens and gastronomy in the future. From a social perspective, sustainable tourism development should continue to respect the identity of Regensburg citizens, improve their quality of life and secure young talent for the tourism industry.

Myrtlewood Golf Club’s Palmetto Course Reopens After Extensive Greens And Bunker Renovation Project

Dan Schlegel and his team installed new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda grass greens and restored the putting surfaces to their original dimensions

Golfers will love the new look, and this project reflects Founders Group International’s long term commitment to delivering the best golf vacation experience possible.”

— Justin Binke, FGI

MYRTLE BEACH, SC, US, October 2, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood Golf Club, long one of Myrtle Beach’s most popular layouts, reopened Friday, Sept. 20, following an extensive greens and bunker renovation project spearheaded by Schlegel Golf Design.

Dan Schlegel and his team installed new Sunday Ultradwarf Bermuda grass greens and restored the putting surfaces to their original dimensions, an effort that expanded the course’s greens by 28 percent. The larger greens elevated the number of pinnable locations and made the Edmund Alt design much more dynamic.

Every bunker on the course was renovated, restoring shape and character that had been lost over the years. The bunkers, while not necessarily larger in size, are much more visible along the fairway, challenging players taking aggressive lines, particularly on par 5s.

“I’m really excited about the way the course looks,” Schlegel said. “We were able to revise the fairway bunkers and the impact they will have on play, so golfers will have to think about how they want to play shots. We were able to restore the greens to their original shape, and everything will be in perfect condition. The Palmetto will be like a new course.”

“The Palmetto Course at Myrtlewood looks great,” said Justin Binke, Founders Group International’s director of sales and marketing. “Golfers will love the new look, and this project reflects Founders Group International’s long term commitment to delivering the best golf vacation experience possible. We are delighted to welcome players back to the Palmetto Course for the always popular fall season here in Myrtle Beach.”

Players familiar with the course will notice the enhancements throughout a round, most notably on the 18th hole, which plays along the Intracoastal Waterway. Schlegel shifted the fairway bunkers and the sightlines from the tee, allowing players to see more of the hole and the waterway, which will enhance the visuals on the Palmetto’s most dramatic challenge.

The decision to hire Schlegel Golf Design was a natural one for FGI. Dan Schlegel previously worked for Ault, Clark & Associates (formerly Edmund Alt, LTD), the company that designed the course, and he was part of a team that completed a pair of projects at the Palmetto Course in the 1990s.

Myrtlewood Golf Club is a 36-hole facility owned by Founders Group International, the Myrtle Beach area’s largest golf course ownership group. The Palmetto’s sister course, PineHills, underwent a similar project in 2018 that has been met by rave reviews.

The renovation of the Palmetto Course is a continuation of FGI’s commitment to the Myrtle Beach golf industry. In the last two years, six of FGI’s 22 courses have been the beneficiary of significant capital improvement projects.

In 2018, Tradition Club and Myrtlewood’s PineHills Course underwent renovation projects that included new greens, and FGI installed the Better Billy Bunker system at TPC Myrtle Beach. In addition to the work at the Palmetto Course, the company also remodeled the clubhouses at Aberdeen Country Club and River Hills Golf Club in 2019.

For more information on the Palmetto Course, visit MyrtlewoodGolf.com.

The 2020 event will pit savvy international travelers against each other by taking them on A Blind Date with the World, visiting ten secret destinations without any prior preparation, and then have them unravel a constant blitz of highly authentic, participatory and challenging culturally-oriented scavenges along the way, like: meditating with monks, training elephants, taking flamenco lessons, cooking local dishes with local chefs, searching out Lost Cities, cracking sacred temple mysteries, joining in local celebrations, and learning local languages enough to decipher their scavenger hunt clues. Trusting strangers in strange lands will be their focus as they circle the globe for three weeks. The event has touched foot in 85 countries to date.

The title of The World’s Greatest TravelersTM and free trip around the world to defend their titles in the 2021 event await the travelers worthy enough to win the 16th edition of the world travel championship.

HealthWay and Culligan Partner to Provide Safer Environments for the Wellness Minded Customer

The global leader in air cleaning technology

Leading air cleaner manufacturer

HealthWay, the global leader in air purification technology, and Culligan, have partnered to offer the complete environmental package of clean air and water.

PULASKI, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — HealthWay, the global leader in air purification technology, and Culligan, the global leader in providing premium drinking water and treatment solutions, have partnered together to offer consumers the complete environmental package of clean air and water.

The World Health Organization has ranked air pollution as the #1 environmental threat facing humans worldwide. Indoor air pollution and exposure to ultrafine particles has been linked to lung cancer, asthma, cardiovascular disease and Alzheimer’s disease. Most air cleaners do not protect against dangerous ultrafine particles now known to cause these diseases.

Clean water is vital to your health for drinking, showering, and cooking your food. Culligan can proudly claim the largest network of “local water expert” dealers in North America. Matt Burns, Culligan’s Franchise Support Manager, saw immediate compatibility with HealthWay. “With Culligan’s focus on reducing harmful contaminants in the water of a home or business it was easy to see the fit of HealthWay’s solutions into our product selling portfolio. The Culligan rep can now seamlessly transition from a discussion about the reduction of lead in the water to explain how that consumer can also remove the ultrafine particles in their living space that contribute to heart disease, stroke and countless respiratory issues.”

HealthWay has a family of brands that have been on a mission to bring the best in air purification directly to consumers through the global network of educated dealerships. With the addition of 600+ Culligan dealers, there will now be nearly 1000 dealerships that bring the message of clean air to the health-conscious consumer around the world. HealthWay branded products can only be found through an authorized non-internet based distribution partner.

Insurance startup warns rental car drivers "Next to zero credit cards cover injuries to other people”

Affordable Car Rental & Supplemental Liability Insurance in 50 States

That Covered Feeling

Buy Supplemental Liability Insurance and get That Covered Feeling

Rental Car Supplemental Liability Insurance from $11.90/day

We felt compelled to solve this rental car liability problem, especially since I have the exact same problem. I haven’t owned a car for the past 13 years!”

— Steve Sherlock

DES MOINES, IOWA, UNITED STATES, October 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Bonzah.com owned by Pablow, Inc. (Pablow), an Insurtech startup based out of Iowa, has a warning for Americans that rent cars: if you get into an accident and hurt others, chances are you won’t be covered by your credit card.

“To say renters get caught off guard is an understatement,” said Steve Sherlock, Co-Founder of Pablow Inc. d.b.a. Bonzah.com. “Next to zero credit cards will cover injuries to other people or their property”

While rental car agencies do offer some liability coverage, they usually only go up to the state minimums, sometimes as low as $10K. In 2017, the average car injury claim cost $15K, according to the Insurance Information Institute, while serious accidents can cost thousands more. Without extra coverage, renters will be on the hook for injury to others above the state minimum.

Bonzah looks to fill this gap by making affordable Supplemental Liability Insurance available online. Through this app, consumers can buy extra coverage without facing the high costs at the rental counter. As fewer Americans own cars and have their own personal auto insurance, this on-demand supplemental rental coverage is more important than ever.

“We’ve had so many people ask for liability insurance given they don’t own an auto and their credit card doesn’t cover liability. We felt compelled to solve this problem, especially since I, as the founder, have the exact same problem. I haven’t owned a car for the past 13 years!”

Travelers looking to buy supplemental rental car insurance can do so by visiting the www.Bonzah.com or download the the app from the App Store and enjoy “That Covered Feeling!”

For more information about this release, Pablow or Bonzah please visit the company website at www.Bonzah.com or contact Steve Sherlock, Co-Founder and CEO for Pablow, at admin@bonzah.com

MyTEFL Internships for Non-Native English Speakers

Thai Beach

Where will our Teach in Thailand Internship take you?

MyTEFL's internships are now open to select non-native English speakers

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, October 1, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the world shrinking at the alarming rate it is today and becoming one global market, few careers are as in demand as those that allow one to travel and see different parts of the world on a regular basis.

One of the easiest careers to get into that center around travel and adventure is that of the TEFL teacher. TEFL teachers live and teach English in countries which have a low rate of English competency and the TEFL industry is at an all time high.

Previously being a native English speaker was a strict requirement for any and all TEFL positions around the world. However, surging demand and an influx of competent, qualified non native English teachers have considerably loosened restrictions and changed employer’s perspectives. In some ways, non-native English speakers are said to make better teachers as they themselves have learned English from a non-native perspective and are able to better understand their students and the difficulties they face.

That being said, employers do still tend to prefer native English speaking TEFL teachers. There are many great jobs out there for non-native teachers but they do have to put in considerably more time and effort to finding a TEFL job and it can be quite hard to “get a foot in the door” as a non-native.

Luckily for for aspiring non-native TEFL teachers, we have two great internship programs in Thailand and Myanmar that have recently opened to select non-native myTEFL graduates.

The programs basically consist of a week of classes and orientation in the country before being placed in a full salaried teaching position. During this week, you’ll be staying with other myTEFL interns and participating in all kinds of fun and unique cultural activities and excursions. In Thailand you’ll be visiting Elephant sanctuaries and cooking Pad Thai and some of the activities in Myanmar include Burmese boxing and meditation guided by a Buddhist monk. We also help you with other aspects of settling into your new life as a TEFL teacher like setting up a SIM card and local bank account. The guaranteed job placement will also offer a competitive salary and plenty of support.

However these programs are not for everyone and there are a few requirements to get accepted.
1) Region

Non-native applicants must be from Central and South America or Western Europe. Russians and Eastern Europeans may be considered on a limited basis. Asian and African non-natives will not be accepted. This policy is due to visa restrictions in place by Thai and Burmese governments, it is not a policy of myTEFL.

2) Test Scores

Non-native applicants must have minimum proficiency scores in at least one standardized English proficiency test. The minimum test scores are as follows;

CEFR – Minimum score of C1
TOEFL – Minimum score of 96 or higher
TOEIC – Minimum score of 700

Other English proficiency tests like the IELTS may also be accepted.

3) Neutral Accent

Applicants must have a light or neutral accent. The submission of a short audio or video clip demonstrating the applicant’s accent will be required as part of the application process.

4) Bachelor's degree

Non-native applicants will require a bachelor’s degree in any major. There will be a limited amount of non-native non-degree holders who may be accepted into the Myanmar internship but the vast majority of applicants will require a degree. Degrees issued in languages other than English will need to be officially translated.

Once an interested non-native candidate has met all the requirements and is ready to apply, the process is easy. The candidate can apply via the website on the page for the internship they are interested in. A deposit is paid and the applicant is enrolled in our 120 hour professional TEFL course which they can begin right away.

While the course is being undertaken, our internship team will reach out to the student for the documents required for application. These include things like a scan of your degree, resume, cover letter and introduction video.
Upon reviewing the entire application, students who are accepted will be notified and processed to move on to the next steps.

Rejected applicants will be given the option to have their deposit fully refunded and course deleted or to continue their course to earn their TEFL certification. Keep in mind that rejection from the internship program doesn’t mean that you won’t be able to find a TEFL job, you’ll just have to use a different approach.

While there are many great TEFL jobs out there for non-natives willing to put in the time and effort, our internships could be the perfect fast track route to becoming a TEFL teacher for some.

For more information about internships, you can email our internship department at intern@mytefl.com.

Market Segmentation:

The main criterion for the market segmentation in the cargo airship market would be the product type or the build of the airship. These would be – Rigid airships, the ones with a rigid framework over which the outer envelope is held and contains smaller pockets inside, Semi-rigid airships, those that have a central frame or keel but the shape is maintained by the internal pressure, Non-rigid airships, those whose shape is maintained entirely by the internal pressure of the filled gas. Another major segmentation in this market would be based on the field that these are deployed in. these would broadly be – Common logistics transportation, for carrying normal cargo and shipments, natural disaster response, as during the time of a severe natural disaster the other modes of transport and supply routes may not be available, and military use, where these are used to deploy weapons, ammunitions or personnel, and also for reconnaissance missions.
