$100+ million development planned for zoomers

Ariva Resorts Terrace

Ariva’s social hub


KELOWNA, BC, CANADA, July 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ariva Resorts, a private Kelowna-based development company, will build a multi-million dollar, innovative 200-home gated community on prime land five minutes from downtown Kelowna on Okanagan Lake.

Barry Johnson, Ariva Resorts founder who came out of retirement to lead the project says it targets so-called “zoomers,” (active baby boomers), downsizing from their traditional homes.

Johnson says the lifestyle desires of this group have been largely ignored by the industry and “we intend to change that thinking. This group is highly active. Health-conscious and want to live life to its fullest. Kelowna is the perfect place to live with its excellent sunshine climate, wines and vineyards, outdoor activities and remains affordable,” he says.

Johnson has forged an enviable development record over the years creating 12 of Canada’s finest gated communities in the area and Predator Ridge Resort, deemed to be the supreme residential golf resort in the country.

The company plans breaking ground in 2020 and envisages a four-year build-out with prices ranging from $500,000 to $1.9 million. Housing unit sizes range from 1,250 to 1,760 square feet and feature exceptionally large outdoor decks that create a great room when glass lake view interior doors are opened to inside.

Ariva is the fruition of seven years of planning by Johnson and his engineer son Kevin. Over these years they have created and refined the vision for the ultimate “baby boomer” community.

In keeping with the overriding “active lifestyle philosophy” the development will also boast a two-acre urban farm created by Grown Here Farms, the largest commercial organic farm in the Similkameen Valley, and supplier to the likes of Choices and Whole Foods. It will grow vegetables and be hands-on for residents who love to garden.

Johnson says e-bikes will be available for offsite excursion riding, space for car tinkerers, man caves, pickleball courts, putting green, bocce courts, and children’s playground.

Ariva has designed a social hub in its first building aimed at creating a strong, active community. It includes a café/bistro, wine bar, lounge, terraced view patio, fitness centre, yoga studio and gym that will spill out on the pool area with cabanas, barbecue and picnic area complete with a long farm table for entertaining.

A Lifestyle Concierge who will arrange events, community functions, and group travel opportunities will serve Ariva residents’ needs.

Methanol Institute’s Commitment to Bootleg Alcohol Prevention

MI continues to work hard to combat methanol poisoning through the dissemination of poisoning prevention and first aid information across the globe.

The sale of bootleg alcoholic beverages either poorly distilled or intentionally spiked with methanol by criminal gangs, is dangerous and illegal and must be stopped.”

— Gregory Dolan, CEO, Methanol Institute

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, July 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Methanol Institute (MI) is concerned and saddened to learn of a spate of recent bootleg alcohol poisoning incidents, including an ongoing incident in Costa Rica in which 19 people are believed to have died due to consuming alcohol illegally tainted with methanol.

MI, the trade association for the global methanol industry, continues to work hard to combat methanol poisoning through the dissemination of poisoning prevention and first aid information across the globe in a variety of languages. MI and our member companies commit significant resources to ensuring the safe use and handling of methanol throughout the global supply chain.

In 2012, MI established educational programs aimed at preventing methanol poisoning from production, consumption, and distribution of illegal and bootleg (counterfeit) alcoholic beverages. Today, MI is working with global partners in at-risk markets to protect consumers from adulterated alcoholic beverages, and raise the awareness of law enforcement agencies and policy makers across the globe to the threat posed by adulterated alcohol.

“Methanol is a chemical building block for hundreds of useful products that touch our daily lives and a clean-burning biodegradable fuel used for powering vehicles, ships, and industry. The sale of bootleg alcoholic beverages either poorly distilled or intentionally spiked with methanol by criminal gangs, is dangerous and illegal and must be stopped,” said MI CEO Gregory Dolan.

MI regularly reaches out to the relevant health authorities when we become aware of incidents in order to share prevention and first aid information that can be disseminated to the affected community in the local language.

While even small amounts of methanol in spirits is potentially fatal, successful treatment of methanol poisoning is possible if it can be diagnosed within 10-30 hours of ingestion. Important bootleg alcohol poisoning prevention and first aid information, including infographics and an educational video on methanol poisoning produced by Médecins Sans Frontières is available on MI’s website.

Dream Drive Brings Van Life to Japan with Rentable Custom Hotel Rooms on Wheels

TOKYO, JAPAN, July 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dream Drive, a custom van workshop and rental company in Japan, is officially launching their depot and 4 vans in August 2019.

Japan is in the midst of a tourism boom seeing record numbers of inbound tourists so far for 2019. (japantoday.com/category/national/japan-sees-record-number-of-foreign-visitors-in-1st-half-of-2019) This is having a toll on the already congested public transport, so this business is launching at the perfect time.

"We built Dream Drive for the experienced traveller who is sick of lugging suitcases around, being shoehorned into oversaturated tourist enclosures and for the traveller who wants to pave their own way. Japan has so much to offer," said Andy Cline, head of product and cofounder at Dream Drive.

The team builds the vans at their depot in Komae, Tokyo. The vans are inspired by the "van life" movement and have been designed to feel like you aren't sleeping in a car, rather a cozy hotel room. On wheels.

Dream Drive has four different types of vans suited for solo travellers or couples or families. The vans include unlimited mileage, GPS, memory foam mattresses with hotel quality white sheets (ample thread count), towels, charging ports, cooking facilities, and the list goes on. Along with their physical products, the company can also assist with roadside assistance offering their own bilingual support, as well as different guides to help clients create their one-of-a-kind adventure.

With so much to see and experience, Dream Drive aims to provide tourists with both a comfortable and convenient way to travel around Japan. Built like a tiny home on wheels, travellers can venture off into different parts of Japan without worrying about irregular hotel check-in times, or matching schedules with public transportation, which becomes quite inconvenient away from the big cities.

Customers pick up the van from the depot which is located 30 minutes from Shinjuku station (including the walk from the station.) the vans are also built on the same site so people interested in the craftsmanship can see the newest vans to enter the fleet. The team building the vans is comprised of mainly expats builders.

In the future, Dream Drive aims to be carbon-negative by running mostly electric vans and by offsetting the waste created by customers in partnership with offset earth out of England.

Dream Drive is open for bookings now.

Anguilla has more exceptional beaches than any other island in the Caribbean.

If you are looking for a more local vibe then the best recommendations are Elvis’ Beach Bar in Sandy Ground or Blanchard’s Beach Shack. If you want to visit an authentic beach bar then a visit to Bankie Banx’s Dune Preserve is a must. This laid-back wooden beach bar is located on Rendezvous Bay, a few steps east of CuisinArt. The Dune Preserve serves terrific local food and entertains with exceptional funky reggae tunes. It's no wonder CNN has voted it the #1 beach bar in the world!

Another firm favourite place to eat is Sandy Island. You can take a quick boat ride from Sandy Ground and once you arrive on this idyllic island you will feel you are on your own private paradise. You can enjoy excellent lobster here and spend the day on the beach.

Changing Phases & Future of E-commerce In Middle East

The beginning of the e-commerce industry, its highs & lows and how will it shape its expansion in the years to follow.

The social shopping platform was founded by Bhupinder Tomar and Aashish Sehgal and is based in India.For more,visit http://www.asaan.com or download the mobile app on the Google Play Store.”

— Asaan

ABU DHABI, THE UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, July 22, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — E-commerce in the Middle East region has taken a substantial increase, thanks to the ever-growing ecstasy of shopping online and the accessibility to grab discounts on almost every online product.

Time flies and (with time) so does the phases of the e-commerce industry. First came the e-commerce, then came the need to fill in branded & renowned products, followed by the shipping of products online, and finally the desire to save more with coupons and discounts. These phases have shaped e-commerce to what it is called an online E-commerce.

The 2016 e-commerce business figures of 18.67 billion dollars in the Middle East have reached an astounding value of 28.6 billion dollar in 2018 and are expected to grow at a double-digit rate in the coming years. Middle East’s e-commerce is all set to reach its highest potential opening a doorway of opportunities for market players to penetrate.

With 75% of internet users in the region, the percentage of population searching for coupons before making a purchase has hit an all-time high. The numbers have grown to 50% users who are looking to save money through sales and promotions. This has led more and more people to digitize and use online shopping as a platform to gain more discounts. Now, e-commerce could break-in the mid-segment population which could not shop online because of the high product prices and shipping costs. Websites like Asaan, Rezeem, Picodi have started publishing exclusive 6thstreet coupons, Mumzworld coupon codes & travel deals like Rehlat coupons for a better consumer-oriented experience.

Looking at the current trends and user intent, this new strategy of driving potential consumers to your yard by offering them what they need remarked new progress in the e-commerce industry. People from all walks of life started getting attracted to online shopping. Coupons are being circulated through publishers and cash on delivery payment method is offered to consumers for ease in purchasing. More than 70% users today preferred Cash On Delivery which also has higher returns rate.

These returns mainly occur during the sale periods, where e-commerce websites make the most of their profit margins. Also, the ratio of returned product online is 30% as compared to 8.9% in brick and mortar stores. The major reasons with the product being returned when purchased online are subject to reasons like a defect in the product, different looking or a fake, and wrong shipment etc.

These reasons result in a major blow to websites trust and people are bound to stay away from it. Whereas offline stores will continue to sell with ease as everything is transparent with nothing being hidden. Scenario, nowadays is that the merchant itself is offering coupons to the user who wants to shop online. Coupons are made available in the form of banners on the merchant’s website and through subscribed newsletters. It creates a loyal consumer base with people laying their trust on the merchant website as they find it authentic, righteous, and helping.

Trust value can only be built on the basis of originality, offering only what is right to the consumer by not misleading them into buying something.

Royal Return USA-Ghana: A Real Homecoming For African-Americans in Ghana

I remember Isaac saying he had never felt so welcomed and connected anywhere, as he felt in Ada, Ghana”

— Princess Ocansey

ACCRA, GHANA, July 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — 2019 marks 400 years since the first Africans landed at Pointe Comfort (now Fort Monroe, Hampton, VA). 

Ghana's President Nana Akufo-Addo launched the Year of Return in DC inviting African Americans to come "home" to Ghana. 

Seventy-five percent of the slave dungeons, which held slaves during the Transatlantic Slave Trade, are located in Ghana. Ghana has become an ultra-popular destination for many African Americans looking to connect with their roots. 

Many have enjoyed being in Ghana but the "connection" they have always longed for, has not always been felt.

 Enter Royal Return Ghana!

Twenty-seven years ago, on December 1992, Royal Return Ghana, founder, HRH Princess Asie Kabuki Ocansey hosted her first African American Celebrity Royal Return, for the late US megastar, Sir Isaac Hayes. 

" We adopted Isaac into the Ocansey Royal Family, and renamed him: Nene (Chief) Katey Ocansey, as Chief for Development of the Ada Traditional Area," said Princess Ocansey.

When the Ocansey Royal Family presented Isaac Hayes land to build a Palace, Isaac was so touched he instead opted to build a school together with the Princess.

"I remember Isaac saying he had never felt so welcomed and connected anywhere, as he felt in Ada, Ghana", said Princess Ocansey.

At an early age 9, an African American Director at Rutgers University, the late Don Phifer, exposed the young Princess to the atrocities of slavery, the Door of No Return, and the impact of slavery on African Americans.

 The Princess was so deeply touched that she made Mr. Phifer a promise that one day, she would go to America and bring back all her African American brothers and sisters and treat them with all the love that had been denied them for so long.

The Royal Return experience is like none other. It is not tourism:  it is a loving transformative family experience of a specially designed homecoming that finds its roots in how deeply the late Don Phifer touched the young Princess Ocansey, enough for her to make him a promise at age 9, that she would see to bringing African Americans back home. 

Since the Royal Return of the late Isaac Hayes, Royal Return has adopted over 1000 African Americans into the Ocansey Royal Family of Ada in spiritual naming ceremonies held on a special Island of healing waters of Reconciliation – some of African Americans-  have come from many organizations including members of the National Black MBA, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity Inc., the National Medical Association and the Student National Medical Association of DC, members of New Birth Missionary Baptist Church of GA and several other churches and members of Hollywood. 

The Royal Return experience kicks off upon landing in Accra with the Royal Return Odendey Cultural Ensemble who welcome their guests with dance, a song and a jump to signify the joy of receiving their long lost brethren and sisters who have broken the spell of no return! 

One significant ceremony is the "salt restoration ritual", where African Americans – as "salt of the motherland" sprinkle salt to restore themselves and "taste" back into the soil of Mama Africa.

Royal Return ensures courtesy calls on top-level members of the nation and communities, plus an expertly guided tour through the slave dungeons followed by visits to beautiful sites while engaging in family visits, naming ceremonies, attending African family events to meet members of their soon to be families.

Royal Return is the real deal, the most sought after homecoming experience for any African American yearning for a real " ODENDEY experience. There is nothing quite like it! It is difficult to articulate but it speaks heart to heart.
