Banff Avenue is in the town of Banff in Banff National Park/Parks Canada, B. Wrobleski

Alberta’s new premier wants the money returned to Alberta National Parks to stay in Alberta.

Danielle Smith made the request in a November 9 mandate letter to Todd Loewenthe new Minister of Forests, Parks and Tourism, saying she expected him to “enter into discussions with his federal counterparts to ensure that all fees generated by Alberta’s national parks remain in Alberta to improve park infrastructure and amenities.

Alberta has five federally funded and operated national parks: Banff National Park, Jasper National Park, Elk Island National Park, Waterton Lakes National Park, and Wood Buffalo National Park (which spans border between Alberta and the Northwest Territories). The province also has more than a dozen national historic sites, which were not mentioned in Smith’s letter.

Smith was named prime minister in October after winning the United Conservative Party (UCP) leadership election that was called after the resignation of Jason Kenney.

Banff is the most visited national park in Canada with 3.6 million visitors in 2021. Jasper came second with 2.1 million.

Parks Canada collects admission fees through day passes and annual discovery passes that provide unlimited access to more than 80 locations across the country. Single location passes are only available for Waterton and Elk Island, as well as two of Alberta’s historic sites.

Entrance fees make up about 25% of the money needed to run national parks, while federal funding makes up the remaining 75%.

BORACAY, Aklan — Planning a beach getaway for the holidays? Hennan’s newest resort — its seventh on the island — offers a relatively cheaper option, with all the amenities of the hotel chain and an address within walking distance of the shore.

Located at Boracay Station 2, Hennan Park opened in April for its soft launch and is now ready to welcome Christmas revelers and tourists for the first time this holiday season.

The resort has 232 premier, family, and deluxe rooms, many of which have direct access to the hotel’s enclosed pool. It’s a distinct layout that has become a staple of Hennan properties, both in Boracay and the other two in Bohol.

“All the resorts in Hennan have that. Impossible na wala. We must have that. Trademark na ‘yun ng Hennan,” Group Vice President of Marketing Karl Chusuey told ABS-CBN News.

In addition to the exclusive swimming pool, which features a sunken bar, Hennan Park’s facilities include a fitness center, mini-shop, and banquet hall. Its restaurant, the Orchard Café, serves Southeast Asian cuisine, ranging from Malaysian, Thai, Singaporean and Filipino specialties.

While Hennan Park’s features and operations are nearly identical to those of its sister resorts, its relatively lower price tag sets it apart, according to Chusuey.

“The Hennan stations operate on a model. We know what to do. We know the standard. All staff know the standard. But, the main difference is that Hennan Park has a very attractive price. It’s on. That’s the selling point,” he said.

On weekdays, for example, the rate per night for Deluxe rooms can be as low as P3,900, while Premier rooms can be booked for P4,300 or less depending on availability.

“We have a very good price. It’s on the main road, but I’d save about 3,000 pesos than if I booked a beachfront room,” Chusuey pointed out.

While Hennan Park is located on the main road, tourists can easily access the beach via public streets. The one directly adjacent to the hotel is a three-minute walk away, though unpaved portions and a narrow lane may put off families or those with children. Fortunately, passing through D’Mall is an alternative – a five-minute walk with “pasalubong” outlook along the way.

Since its soft-opening in April, Hennan Park has had several days fully booked — a testament, for Chusuey, that the resort chain continues to be a popular choice for Boracay tourists despite several branches on the island.

“Even with six stations, there was still more demand. If you offer a good product, they will gravitate towards a good product no matter what. There was an opportunity; we took it. They are looking for value. It’s cheaper, but it’s the Hennan standard. This fills the void. Mura, pero maganda,” he said.

The hotel manager did not see ‘timing’ as a factor in Hennan Park’s early success, citing the fact that it opened just as lockdown restrictions began to ease, and to many Filipinos and foreigners were eager to get back to the beach.

“Now was the time. It was the holidays. It was summer. And everyone wanted to travel. And we have very good prices. It’s hard to resist. Kung maganda at mura, sulit ‘di ba? he joked.

Despite its positioning as the more budget-friendly Hennan, Station 2’s Park promises to deliver the same service expected of the resort brand, Chusuey said.

When asked what he thinks has made Hennan a staple in Boracay, he replied, “It really is a combination of everything. You can’t do it with promotions alone, you can’t do it with a good product alone, you can’t do it with decent service alone. It’s also a combination of your employees, how you train them, and how they treat the business. It’s about malasakit, and it’s about passion.

Vidrala, a leading manufacturer of glass containers, has announced the acquisition – through its UK division Encirc – of the bottling facilities and logistics infrastructure operated by Accolade Wines in Bristol, UK Kingdom, known as “The Park”.

The agreement includes the signing of a long-term supply agreement with Accolade Wines, one of the world’s leading wine producers, which will benefit both parties and ensure support for Accolade’s flagship brands.

With this acquisition, worth £30 million, the Vidrala Group takes another step in its objectives to further reduce the carbon footprint of the company’s supply chain, as a key element of its sustainable development strategy and in accordance with its scientific objectives. Additionally, this agreement will enable the company to provide a more efficient and sustainable supply chain service to the UK beverage market through Encirc.

“The Park is positioned as one of the most advanced and sustainable facilities in Europe, with a production capacity of more than 30 million cases of 9-litre wine per year. The Park’s facilities produce no waste and are CO2 neutral, thanks to the investment made in 2019 which opted for the installation of wind turbines in order to consume 100% renewable electricity.

Under the terms of the agreement, Encirc will acquire “The Park” facilities and all associated facilities and equipment. As for the employees, the agreement provides that they join Encirc under their current conditions. Some employees will remain with Accolade to provide services to the business, as well as provide support to Encirc on a temporary basis. Accolade Wines is also committed to making the transition as smooth as possible.

Koretz got his start in politics at UCLA, where he co-founded the Bruin Democratic Club in 1973. He worked for then-board member Zev Yaroslavsky and the California League of Conservation Voters. He also won a seat on the West Hollywood City Council in 1988. A dozen years later, he joined the State Assembly. And in 2009, he was elected to the LA City Council, representing parts of the Westside and San Fernando Valley.

In his first bid for a citywide position, Koretz touted his interest in tenants’ rights, his advocacy for anti-animal cruelty laws and his environmental policies.

Throughout his career, Koretz has been a strong advocate for organized labor, especially unions that represent public sector employees. But the unions have not been heavily involved in the race for controllers. Among the few to intervene is the International Union of North American Local 300, which funded the Committee for an LA Sane, a group opposed to Mejia’s campaign.

Mejia, for his part, has held jobs over the past decade at Ernst & Young, Canyon Capital Advisors, Activision and other companies. He is a three-time political candidate, having run for a congressional seat in Los Angeles in 2016, 2017 and 2018.

In his first run for mayor, Mejia used his campaign to produce charts and graphs that illustrate the city’s spending decisions and inform how city government works. These charts, on social media and old-school billboards, showed the amount of money provided to the LAPD, the cost of city legal payments, the location of park facilities and other information. .

For the political left in Los Angeles, a victory for Mejia would be a huge coup, perhaps setting him up for a mayoral bid in 2026.

A activist with the Los Angeles Tenants Union, Mejia protested last year outside the San Fernando Valley home of councilman Paul Krekorian, demanding the city buy an apartment building in Chinatown where tenants are facing huge rent hikes. He has repeatedly attended protests outside Mayor Eric Garcetti’s home, where Black Lives Matter-Los Angeles has spoken out against the idea of ​​Garcetti securing a position in the Biden administration.

Phipps, a former CFR bareback competitor and high school teacher, says the event is very important to cowboys and cowgirls as they have competed in approximately 56 CPRA events throughout the year with every dollar earned representing a point in their final standings. He says the payout is the biggest of the year and is among the top five prizes in the world, with some potentially walking away this weekend with up to $60,000.

“Really, what excites me the most is seeing some of the CFR rookies who have never made the Canadian final and seeing how they deal with the nervousness the first time around, seeing who shows up at the height and see who is struggling,” he said. said.

Westerner Park general manager Mike Olesen said the event was not only profitable for competitors, but also for the local economy.

“Our community will experience an economic impact of over $35 million during this time and I think you will see it primarily in the retail sector and certainly in the hotels and restaurants that will reap the benefits because a number of people are coming to town,” he said.

The CFR Trade Show will be open to the public each day, featuring vendors from the agriculture, western fashion and regional lifestyle sectors such as sports and recreational vehicles. Meanwhile, Kody Lamb will perform live until Saturday on the CFR trade show stage alongside the Miss Rodeo Canada competition until Friday.

Along with free entry to the Cowboy Sh*t Watch Party held Wednesday through Saturday, there’s also the SweetPro Plaza Tailgate Party, featuring a different performer each day through Sunday, so guests can enjoy fire pits and games before heading to the arena for the main rodeo.

CFR Rodeo events and their 2022 qualifiers include:

Full daily schedules are available on the CFR website.

Each day will be composed of different themes with Alberta artists during the half-time shows:

  • Wednesday, November 2: Plaid for Dad – In honor of the First Nations, the halftime show features world champion hoop dancer Dallas Arcand Jr and dancer Alicia Chevonnec, to the music of one of the best First Nations DJs in the world. country.
  • Thursday, November 3: Boucles & Bling – 12-year-old Roman Rider Piper Yule and Canadian County Music Association (CCMA) Hall of Famer Tyler Vollarth.
  • Friday, November 4: Harvest – Multi-award winning violinists Tyler Vollarth and Allison Granger
  • Saturday, November 5: Canadian Smoking – CCMA and Western Canadian Music Awards winner Nice Horse performs with Canadian Equestrian Champions Shelby Pierson and Bella Da Costa

After each rodeo, the live “Cabaret Coral” country music lineup includes Garrett Gregory, Brettyn ​​Rose, Drew Gregory and Ben Chase, respectively each day until Saturday.

While rodeo events take place from 6-8:30 p.m. November 2-5, an additional event will take place on Saturday from 12-2:30 p.m. with an H Bar Auctions horse sale at 3 p.m.

On Sunday, with the theme of the Gold and Red Championship, the Christian Cowboy Community will host a Cowboy Church at 11 a.m., and the CFR Championship Performance will take place from 12 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. before the final presentations.

Phipps says many outlying events are either new to this year’s CFR or reborn from pre-2020 CFRs. A secondary arena will open at the Stockmens Pavilion where there will be dummy lassoing for children and professional bullfighter Brett Monea will teach children the ultimate bullfighting experience.

Olesen also says that in the wake of the pandemic, he is excited to showcase how adaptable the facilities at Westerner Park are to audiences in delivering a world-class event to central Alberta and the world.

“Nothing could have been more frustrating last year when we had no time at all [to plan] and you’re really trying to pull it off,” he said.

“What I’m excited for, for our team and the army behind it, is that they’ve really had a chance to plan this year, which then gives us the best chance to deliver a product that meets our own expectations that would be as high as anyone.”

While many activities are free, tickets for rodeo events are available online. Other activities are also available on the CFR website.

Residents are invited to attend a family fun day at Tweed Heads Recreation Ground to share their ideas and provide feedback on the proposed design of the new park.

The Council will host a free event in the park on Saturday, November 19 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. that will include a BBQ and children’s activities, with Council staff available to discuss plans for the park.

The $800,000 upgrade will revitalize and modernize the park by providing a place for community members of all ages to gather, connect and enjoy the location and facilities.

The council’s director of parks and active communities, Murray Smith, said the recreation ground upgrade will further increase the quality of life in Tweed Heads.

“It is important that we provide improved facilities to the community to meet the expected population growth in the coming years. The single swing currently at Recreation Ground does not meet the needs of the community,” Smith said.

“With the improvements currently underway at Goorimahbah – Place of Stories Inclusive Park and Playspace at Jack Evans Boat Harbour, the addition of new shades and swings at Jack Chard Park in Enid Street and now Recreation Ground in the planning phase, the council has made it a priority to increase the livability of the city and this upgrade will be an important step in that direction.

Park improvements like these are a way to provide the community of Tweed with more opportunities to be healthy and active, while creating a vibrant community in which to live and visit.

Residents were asked to comment on the recreation ground upgrade in May and June this year, with 244 survey responses received. Additionally, meetings were held with local schools, a co-design workshop was held with young people and key stakeholders, and other feedback was taken into account to prepare the draft plan.

The overwhelming majority of comments called for more play equipment for all ages, a scooter or bike path, climbing gear, half a basketball court, keeping the green space open, and recreational facilities. additional picnics in the shade. The community also expressed the need for a fenced off-leash dog area, spaces for young people to study outdoors, additional parking, better toilets and preservation of market space. .

Community feedback informed the development of a draft concept plan and the Board now invites community input until Wednesday, December 7, 2022. Feedback received online and at Family Fun Day will inform the final design of the park concept.

The council received a $200,000 grant from the New South Wales Government’s Anyone Can Play grant program to improve the recreation ground so that it is more inclusive for everyone, which will be matched by the board. Additional funding of $400,000 was also received from the New South Wales Government Regional Housing Fund for youth recreation facilities and park facilities.

This project is part of Council’s commitment to the Open Spaces Strategy (2019-2029) to protect and enhance the quality of public open spaces in Tweed where several park improvements have been completed for the community over the past 12 years. month. These include: Coral Street Park in Bilambil Heights, Banora Point Community Center Park, Clarrie Englert Park in Tweed Heads West, Chillingham Tennis Court and Playground in Chillingham and Fingal Foreshore Park in Fingal Head which is due for completion at the end of November.

Register your participation in Family Fun Day by 16 November at yoursaytweed.com.au/recreationground or contact the Council’s customer services team on (02) 6670 2400.

A white-painted steel and wood volume that contains an office, dressing room, reception and studio sits at the center of this photographer’s studio in a former factory building.

Located in a former factory building that overlooks a busy T-junction near a park in Nanjing, China, HNS Studio was designed by architects Muhhe Studio for local photographer Huai Nianshu.

The studio started by removing all the partitions and ceilings in the space to reveal a sloping wooden roof structure.

HNS Studio is a photography studio that has been renovated by Muhhe Studio

“In the early summer before the reconstruction, we went to the site, after the removal of the old partition, the high-rise space of the old factory was warm and transparent in the sunlight of the afternoon,” Muhhe Studio recalled.

“The photographer himself is extremely sensitive to light. His only expectation for the new studio space is a ‘transparent’ space.”

In order to capture the light, the studio used BIM software to simulate the movement of daylight in space throughout the day. In response to this study, the studio created several openings of varying sizes along the gable and west roof of the building to ensure the space would be evenly lit at all times.

It is in an old factory

Additionally, the architects inserted three large windows that function as a showcase for the studio and increase its connection to the street outside.

A two-story structure that looks like two stacked boxes and contains all of the studio’s equipment has been built in the center of the space. On the ground floor, an office, a dressing room and a toilet are clad in marine plywood.

A series of stairs at the rear of the plywood volume lead to a floor wrapped in white painted steel. This open top floor overlooks the space below and will be used as a large photo studio with a reception area and an open-plan office.

The architects left the original factory space with its brick and plaster walls largely intact to function as a “continuous and rhythmic open space”.

The interior has been painted white and decorated with wooden furniture

The original entrance from the street on the south side has been moved to the rear so that before entering the office, one must now cross a semi-enclosed courtyard.

“We pay attention not only to the interior space, but also to the exterior space, and even to the relationship of the whole park, as well as the relationship between the history and the present of this space”, the architects told Dezeen.

“We designed the space very delicately to allow users and visitors to enjoy it. [To be] being people-oriented is our ultimate goal.”

This project has been shortlisted in the Small Workspace Interiors category of the Dezeen Awards 2022.

Other projects in the category include a part workspace and part community center in a sleepy fishing village in Taiwan, and a wine bar workspace for a consulting firm in Sweden.

A draft EIA is being prepared for a wilderness stewardship plan on file at Isle Royale National Park/NPS

Staff at Isle Royale National Park in Michigan are developing a Wilderness Stewardship Plan to outline strategies for preserving the wilderness character of the park, including the treatment of cultural resources in the wilderness. The previous Backcountry Wilderness Plan and final EIA for the park did not provide a decision for treatments and use of historic structures in potential and designated wilderness areas, and this is the one of the reasons for drawing up a new plan.

According to park staff, preliminary inventory and monitoring of wildlife and backcountry resources at Isle Royale indicate a difference between existing and desired conditions. Changes in hinterland use, management measures, increased visitation and associated negative human-induced impacts suggest an underlying need to more proactively manage human activities that directly affect or indirectly wilderness conditions, staff said.

To move forward with this planning, staff are developing an environmental impact statement for the plan that will describe how wilderness resources would be affected by the no-action alternative and two action alternatives that address the possibilities for recreation and other wilderness management, including the management of historic wilderness properties.

There is currently an open comment period on the draft proposal which runs until November 21st. You can read more about the plan and comment on it on this site.

According to a bulletin describing the EIS, the national park in the northern part of Lake Superior consists of 133,788 acres of land and 438,008 acres of surface water (571,796 acres total). The park is the largest island in Lake Superior, which itself is the largest freshwater lake by surface area in the world. There are over 400 small islands surrounding the main island, which together make up the complete archipelago of Isle Royale. Approximately 98% of the land portion of the park was designated by Congress as a wilderness area in 1976. Later additions of land for wilderness designation brought the total wilderness area to 99%, encompassing 132,018 acres. Currently, 93 acres of the island have been identified as potential wilderness areas. Only 1,677 acres of the island are considered non-wild. Although some historical developments predating the establishment of the park are present on the island, the park is mostly undeveloped except for some areas of the park that serve park management operations and provide visitor amenities.

An alternative action under consideration calls for enhancing the wilderness character of Isle Royale “with a particular focus on enhancing the wilderness experience while maintaining the natural and unfettered wilderness qualities of Isle Royale. This alternative would provide additional access opportunities consistent with public wilderness objectives, including additional trails, a new campground, and additional campgrounds within existing campgrounds. potential wilderness areas would be identified for the following treatment options: preservation, stabilization, mold or demolition Under this alternative, Isle Royale would designate 81 acres of the current potential wilderness to designated wilderness status, after publication of a Federal Register notice.

A second alternative for action also calls for enhancing the wilderness character of the park, but “focusing primarily on improving solitude. Solitude is generally preserved or enhanced through management actions that reduce visitor encounters, signs of modern civilization inside the wilderness, facilities and management restrictions on visitors The alternative emphasizes solitude by decreasing the size of day-use groups, reducing the number of campsites in campgrounds, eliminating trails, allowing public use in the winter, and implementing a camping permit system This alternative proposes to eliminate commercial use in the wild wilderness of Isle Royale, which would improve solitude by reducing visitor encounters with large groups.The alternative would also remove shelters and l structures in the wilderness to enhance the primitive and unconfined qualities of recreation, the natural and undeveloped qualities of wilderness character. This alternative, like the first, would provide treatment options for historic structures in wilderness areas and potential wilderness areas that could include preservation, stabilization, molding, or demolition.

Additionally, the second alternative calls for preserving all 93 acres identified as potential wilderness as wilderness.
