Wildlife Wednesday: On Your Mark, Get Set? Let Them Go! ? Sea Turtles Set Off On Migratory Journey

Turtle2014 286This past weekend, Disney?s Vero Beach Resort hosted the Sea Turtle Conservancy?s annual ? Tour de Turtles ? event which allows sea turtle fans to follow the marathon migration of 12 sea turtles from their nesting beaches to their foraging grounds. This year, Olaf?s summer dream in the Academy Award winning Disney Animation Studios film ? Frozen ? inspired us to feature him in our event and name the turtles after his friends Anna and Elsa. The morning began as each loggerhead sea turtle was outfitted with a satellite transmitter. Now that the females have finished nesting for the season, it is time for them to head to their foraging grounds so that they can begin feasting on those tasty crustaceans. The transmitters allow us to track the path to Anna and Elsa?s favorite foraging grounds. As the ?turtle safe? adhesive dried, guests had the opportunity to participate in various activities as they learned more about sea turtles and earned stamps for completed activities in their nature journal. Guests watched as Disney?s Animal Programs cast members conducted a nest inventory and counted the number of eggs in a recently hatched sea turtle nest; discovered ways they can help hatchlings including knocking down sand castles after they leave the beach, and realized how difficult it could be for a sea turtle to free itself if tangled in plastic debris. Each sea turtle involved in ?Tour de Turtles? acts as an ambassador to raise awareness about a specific threat to sea turtles. Sea turtle ?Anna? (sponsored by Disney?s Animal Programs and Disney?s Vero Beach Resort) is swimming to raise awareness about light pollution. Many don?t realize that bright beachfront lighting from buildings and flashlights from people walking on the beach can deter nesting turtles, draw hatchlings inland and prevent them from safely reaching the ocean. It?s important to close your curtains to prevent light from shining on the beach or using sea turtle-friendly fixtures that shield the light from the beach and never use a flashlight during sea turtle nesting season at night! Sea turtle ?Elsa? (sponsored by the Disney Worldwide Conservation Fund ) is focused on the troubling amount of plastic debris in oceans around the more... world. The debris breaks into small pieces that are eaten by sea turtles and other marine wildlife, which causes the animals severe digestive troubles. Over the years, the consumption of this plastic debris has caused the deaths of over 100 million marine animals and floating marine debris can also lead to turtles becoming entangled in plastic, fishing line, nets and more. You can help by picking up litter, purchasing reusable grocery bags, recycling, and not releasing balloons. Youth from the local Boys & Girls Club learned all about how scientists develop tracking devices to monitor sea turtle migration pattern in the ocean and had a front row seat to watch Anna and Elsa?s return to the ocean. Everyone wished Anna and Elsa well on their ocean journey and we look forward to their return when they are ready to lay more eggs in two years.

Disney To Benefit From Marvel's Expansion Into Tv - Yahoo Finance

10 reasons why you still need a travel agent | Fox News

Please enter your Phone Number. Send Thanks! A link has been sent. Done Disney to Benefit from Marvel's Expansion into TV By Zacks Equity Research 6 hours ago 0 shares Content preferences Done After attaining success in the film business, media giant The Walt Disney Companys ( DIS ) Marvel Studios forayed into the world of television last year with Agents of SHIELD. The show was a spin-off from The Avengers and has also added Agent Carter recently, which will be screened on the U.S network, ABC. Agent Carter will have Hayley Atwell who will replay her role from Captain America. Though Agents of SHIELD faced many hurdles in the first season, Marvel intends to build on this new development as it recently penned an agreement with Netflix, Inc. ( NFLX ) for online streaming of four of Marvels TV series along with a miniseries. Starting with Daredevil, which is scheduled to premiere at least after a year, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist and Luke Cage will follow, with an expectation of enhancing Marvels business.

Pasadena Weekly - Out of This World

Tweet it! SHARE IT! What if Han Solo was the front-and-center star of the original Star Wars movies, and what if his team consisted of a talking raccoon, a mutant tree-man, a hulking giant and a hot green woman, instead of a Wookie named Chewbacca, a couple of robots and a clueless brother-sister duo? Thats basically the question asked by Guardians of the Galaxy, and the answer is you would still have a pretty good time, if not a timeless classic. Guardians is perhaps the summers most original film, with the folks at Marvel and Disney studios taking a chance on a big-budget ($170 million) mix of sci-fi action and comedy. Part of the risk really comes from the fact that Guardians has no big movie stars in its cast of on-screen humans, centering instead on the charms of veteran TV actor Chris Pratt of Parks and Recreation, with Bradley Cooper providing the voice of Rocket Raccoon and Vin Diesel serving almost as an in-joke as the voice of the grunting tree-man, Groot, and Zoe Saldana playing the green hero after establishing her bona fides playing a hot blue hero Avatar. Pratt stars as Peter Quill, who has given himself the nickname Star-Lord and loves to brag about it to everyone he sees. The film opens with Peter as a young boy watching his mother die in a hospital before he runs outside and is inexplicably zapped by a spaceship and hurtled into the heavens. Now an adult, he is a junk collector working with a group called the Ravagers in search of a metallic orb that is wanted badly by a diverse group of creatures aside from his boss, Yondu (Michael Rooker). The green woman, Gamora, is first on that list, as a highly trained assassin under orders from an evil overlord named Thanos to grab the orb at all costs. The sarcastic Rocket and his sidekick Groot are also in hot pursuit, though the four quickly decide to team up rather than fight when they realize they need each others particular skills and can split a $4 billion bounty if they deliver the orb to the highest bidder in 24 hours. There are almost too many more creatures and characters, as the movie bounds from one weirdly named galactic location to another at a sometimes confusing pace. But the movie builds momentum and tension well, with the last half-hour a slam-bang barrel of fun that is much less serious than the climactic battles of just about every Marvel movie outside of The Avengers itself. The wizard behind it all is James Gunn, who directed the film and co-wrote the script with Nicole Perlman, based on a series of comics written by Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning. Those comics were a daring experiment in themselves, an attempt to create an alternate form of superheroes that served almost as a spoof of The Avengers but with just enough plotline to be compelling as well as funny. Gunn has done a couple of my favorite movies in the past decade the highly unique comedy-horror mash-up Slither and the indescribably original Super, in which Rainn Wilson of The Office plays a put-upon nebbish who decides to gain revenge on society by becoming a superhero vigilante and winds up taking things way too far.

The travel agent is constantly selling a particular supplier and has the leverage to fix things, even when the supplier isnt directly at fault. Travel suppliers value the travel agents business much more than any individual traveler. They will step up to make things right or simply to make sure that traveler, and their travel agent, are happy. 4) Cost-Savings The best travel agents have unique access to benefits that can save you a lot of money and provide you with a better experience:free room upgrades, spa credits, food and beverage credits are just a few of the things that agents can get, that you cant. Add in hard-to-get restaurant reservations, exclusive or priority access to attractions, added amenities, and you will have a lot more value for your travel dollar. (Ever wonder why the couple in the cabin next to yours got champagne and you didn't? They probably used a travel agent) 5) Time-Savings Instead of searching blindly on the Internet for hours, days, or even weeks depending on the complexity of the travel plans you can have an expert do the research for you, with your personal needs in mind. They do it for every component of the tripand very often do it at no cost to you. 6) Safety Net If anything should go wrong during your trip, you can rely on them to assist you. A travel agent will suggest and arrange alternate travel arrangements , help you to deal with any travel emergency you may have, and put you in touch with the right local people to answer your needs. 7) On the Cutting Edge They are on the cutting edge of what's new: Travel agents are the first to know about a new resort, cruise ship or tour. They have relationships with their best travel partners who keep them informed as to the latest and greatest offerings they have. So if you want to travel on the latest and greatest, agents are the way to go! 8) You Pay the Same Anyway! More than 98 percent of hotels are parity priced. That means the cost is the same whether you book it yourself or have the travel agent do the work. Some travel agents even have websites that feature the same inventory, bookable in real time, as Expedia and Orbitz.

"The movie business has been around for over a hundred years - there are good years and bad years," he said. "Every time there are two good movies in a row, everybody says it's back, but if there's a downturn, people say it's over."

Disney And Usaa Offer ?veterans Institute? Workshop In san Antonio To Encourage Hiring Of Military Veterans - Yahoo Finance

Disney introduced the program in March 2012 with a commitment to hire at least 1,000 veterans by 2015. Having exceeded that goal in the first year alone, with 1,300 veterans hired, the company announced in March 2013 that it would create opportunities for another 1,000 former service members over the next two years. To date, Disney has hired more than 3,800 veterans through Heroes Work Here. Disneys Heroes Work Here initiative also features a public awareness campaign to encourage employers across the U.S. to hire former military service members. The campaign includes the free Veterans Institute workshops, as well as public service announcements highlighting the skills and experience of veterans who work at Disney.

The third component of Disneys Heroes Work Here initiative is philanthropy.

At-Home Professional Making Differences Around the World | TheLedger.com

Just this past April, Keen-Hadman and her team ventured to the Dominican Republic, where they painted six schools, weeded, assembled playground equipment and delivered school supplies. Spanish-speaking members of her team also read to the children. "BeautiControl has a foundation that partners with the Make-a-Wish Foundation. One little girl got her wish from us to go to Disney, and they asked her what she liked about it the most and she said that she liked the fact that there were no needles there," she said. "I cried." Keen-Hadman said that she and her team have worked with BeautiControl and the company's efforts to support the Alliance in Reconstructive Surgery; this year they will provide reconstructive surgery for five women who are battling breast cancer. They have also partnered again with Women Helping Others, which has given more than $6 million to women and children in need. According to Keen-Hadman, at least 250,000 are from Florida. "I've always worked with philanthropic projects, even when I was a single mother, and I taught my kids that, too. I'm most proud of my 10 year old granddaughter who has started her own giving program called, Barefoot No More. She has collected 400 pairs of shoes and they are given to kids right here in Polk County," she said. The WAY Center in Haines City is one of the places where those shoes are distributed, and Keen-Hadman has her fingerprints there too.

Beyond Califlorida: Taking A Leap Of Faith Here

Saving money at Disney WorldBeyond CaliFlorida: Taking a leap of faith here Written by Jeff Elliott Published: July 23, 2014 at 10:50 AM Cave of the Winds (Colorado Springs) ? I have an idea. Why don?t we just dispense with the safety harnesses and the cables and all of that and just shoot people out of a canon and into a slightly dampened sponge at the bottom of the canyon? I chose this video because it was the only one I could find where they bleeped out the profanity. But I wonder how well the profanity echoes in that canyon. For a place that doesn?t even have an amusement park within an hour?s drive, TERROR-Dactyl is really letting the visitors have it in the teeth? Tivoli Friheden (Denmark) ? Okay, so after this experience, the swing in the canyon looks a little on the tame side. I admit it. Oh, and there is a wee bitty o swearing in this video, so turn the sound way down if yer ears be a sensitive. Six Flags Magic Mountain ? Good job watching your mouths this last week. Your reward? You get Ninja and Green Lantern back! Carowinds ? Construction is underway on your new 325ft tall B&M roller coaster. Kings Dominion ? While we reported last week that Cedar Point is going to get some water rides from Geauga Lake, it looks like survey crews are looking over Kings Dominion as well looking for a place to stash the surplus water rides. If all they?re doing is trying to find a place to stash some excess rides, I say y?all grab your pickup trucks and meet me out back behind Geauga Lake on Friday night after close. I?ve got a backyard just begging for one of those babies. Holiday World ? The park has decided to quit making everyone sea sick and bored and will finally get around to announcing its new 2015 attraction Thursday night. For a price tag of $22 million, it has got to be big and it has got to be steel. Just as a cost comparison: Intimidator 305 ? cost $25 million. Smiler - $30 million. Banshee ? $24 million. Lightning Run ? $7 million. Thunderbolt ? $10 million. Cedar Point ? Next year?s new attraction is aimed at teens and other hard-core thrill seekers, according to the park?s general manager. That kind of buries all of our previous thoughts on the matter, because more now it sounds like they are going to install an Xbox One somewhere in the park. Grand Texas Theme Park ? This project is going to be pushed over the construction phase and out of wild rumor territory. They have set some opening dates: Memorial Day 2015 for the water park, and Memorial Day 2016 for the rest of the park, including five roller coasters. If this is anything like the last couple of big independent parks that have gone up, you might want to make plans now to visit this park in the first couple of months that it is open. Speaking of Hard Rock Park (and yes, I was referring to Hard Rock Park), it seems somewhat suspicious that Hard Rock Park has five roller coasters that are waiting to be dismantled, and Grand Texas claims that they will open in 2016 with five roller coasters. Hmmmmmm?. Universal Studios Korea ? It looks like the park chain has pulled out of this project. It?s okay, I?m sure the Koreans can buy their Harry Potter merchandise somewhere else. Six Flags New England ? The Cyclone will run its last run this Sunday, so you better hurry if you are going to catch that coaster credit before it goes away. Now Hiring ? Kings Island is looking to fill positions for the fall season this Thursday. ?Hundreds of job? are available, but apply online first before heading down to the park. Now Hiring ? Six Flags Great Adventure is looking to hire a dozen trained dancers for their Halloween shows and 150 scare actors. Auditions will be on Friday and Saturday. Don?t forget to fill out the application online before you go. Readers' Opinions From Court E on July 23, 2014 at 11:02 AM Being a former resident of Colorado I would like to warn everyone that is planning on visiting the Cave of the Winds to be on alert for ManBearPig. He's half Man, half Bear, and half Pig. I'm super cereal... From Jeff Elliott on July 23, 2014 at 11:10 AM Yep...that's the Cave of the Winds we are talking about.... I had forgotten about that reference... From 98.21.194.12 on July 23, 2014 at 4:59 PM Has there been any info leaked letting people know the Carowinds Coaster will be 325 feet? I know it's suppose to be a giga but have this may be the first I've read about 325 feet. Is that a record breaker? From Melanie Howe on July 23, 2014 at 6:46 PM I'll ride just about any coaster with a track... But those two things on the videos ..... No way, no how! I think I'll have nightmares about falling now .... From 24.5.122.118 on July 23, 2014 at 10:56 PM Well the best part of South Park is if you're actually from Colorado and you can pick up on the stuff around the state they make fun of. The Casa Bonita episode is probably the one thing they don't over exaggerate sadly. Jeff if I'm not mistaken you've been to both Elitch's and Lakeside? From Court E on July 23, 2014 at 11:05 PM Well the best part of South Park is if you're actually from Colorado and you can pick up on the stuff around the state they make fun of. The Casa Bonita episode is probably the one thing they don't over exaggerate sadly. Jeff if I'm not mistaken you've been to both Elitch's and Lakeside? From Jeff Elliott on July 24, 2014 at 2:19 PM The Carowinds 325ft coaster is based off of a trademark that Cedar Fair filed for: Fury 325. It looks like they have since backed away from that name in favor of Centurion...but everything is a guess until it is announced. ...and a little tidbit about me...If I had gone to college directly out of high school instead of going into the Marine Corps, I would have gone to CU Boulder, and would have gone directly into the film making program. At the time I was a huge fan of Primus, was writing my own screenplays, could sing and act, and was heavily into comedy...right at the same time Matt & Trey were at CU Boulder working on Cannibal the Musical. I think there is a chance that I would have been the third creator of Southpark. In fact I have a friend from high school who wrote for Southpark for a season (and then later won an Emmy for writing for 30 Rock)...and my wife was a coworker of the guy that Chef was based on (he had the royalty check to prove it). And yes, I took Jim Koehl to Lakeside, Elitches, and several other parks when he was here last summer....you can find the reviews that Jim posted in the TPI archive. All of them were places that I had been before...

Eight Delectable Disney Parks Treats For National Ice Cream Day

eddpt123456Why do we love ice sites cream so much? Sunday, July 20, is National Ice Cream Day, declared by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, and we?re happy for the pure joy of a dripping ice cream cone on a hot summer day. Disney Parks fans know the gooey Kitchen Sink Sundae, the irresistible Dole Whip and ice-cold Mickey Mouse bar. And we?ve all picked a favorite flavor for a double scoop from Gibson Girl Ice Cream Parlor at Disneyland park or Plaza Ice Cream Parlor at Magic Kingdom Park at Walt Disney World Resort . But for National Ice Cream Day, we?re stepping out with some ice cream creations you may not have tried. Here are eight favorites that are a little more creative than a double dip of vanilla or chocolate: If you?re lucky enough to find yourself dining at California Grill at Disney?s Contemporary Resort on National Ice Cream Day, order the Sundae Sampler, a mini-trio with Frangelico toffee mousse, a float with root-beer flavored ice cream and homemade vanilla soda and a ?banana split? (mousse, fresh roasted pineapple, fresh strawberries, whipped cream, candied peanuts, chocolate sauce and a cherry). You won?t want to share. Run, don?t walk, to try the chocolate macaron sandwich at L?Artisan des Glaces at the France pavilion at Epcot . A crunchy chocolate cookie sandwich with dark chocolate ice cream made right there, it?s simply divine. There are 16 flavors, but, seriously, that chocolate-chocolate sensation is a must. Another favorite? The hand-pressed brioche ice cream sandwich. Try something different at the new Morocco Juice Bar at Epcot World Showcase, where the chef is making bold ice cream flavors like chocolate and cinnamon, green tea, pistachio with orange blossom water (our favorite), strawberry and red bean, and toasted almond with rosewater. For a Magic Kingdom pick-me-up, grab the latte iced coffee float at Auntie Gravity?s Galactic Goodies in Tomorrowland. (The kids can get a caramel or hot fudge sundae.) At Disneyland Resort , we always make a stop at Clarabelle?s at Disney California Adventure park for the hand-dipped ice-cream bar. Choose vanilla, chocolate or mixed berry sorbet, ask for it dipped in milk or dark chocolate, then add a flourish of toppings like chocolate chips or rainbow sprinkles. Made on the spot while you watch. Get fancy at Napa Rose at Disney?s Grand Californian Hotel & Spa with a single, double or triple scoop of artisanal ice creams: Scharffen Berger chocolate chunk, Tahitian vanilla bean or creamy California strawberry. The Napa Rose pastry chefs churn it out fresh. If you?re strolling Downtown Disney District at Disneyland Resort, stop at Uva Bar for a homemade ice-cream milkshake. We recommend the s?mores flavor. Or if a root beer float is more to your liking, they make theirs with Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream and craft root beer. We?ve got a soft spot for cobbler a la mode, and some of the best is at Big Thunder Ranch Barbecue ? fresh fruit (whatever?s in season) baked in a skillet with a crunchy topping and vanilla ice cream. Grab at least two spoons and share. Eight Delectable Disney Parks Treats for National Ice Cream Day by Pam Brandon: Originally posted on the Disney Parks Blog

He said he drove to Georgia to meet the boy at his house, then took him to a hotel where they had sex, according to the interrogation video. The undercover detective asked Treaster, OK and when did you find out how old he was? Honestly, I found out before I met him, but you know, Treaster said. So you still went for that, to have sex with him, knowing he was 15 years old? the detective asked. Yes, Treaster said.

Sodexo: Organic Revenue Growth Of 2.3% For The First Nine Months Of Fiscal 2014 - Yahoo Finance

Benefits and Rewards Services Organic growth in Benefits and Rewards Services revenues of 14.0% for the first nine months of the year was once again excellent and much brisker than in Fiscal 2013, due to: An excellent sales dynamic in Latin America (with organic growth of nearly 22%), driven by solutions provided to an ever-increasing number of beneficiaries and higher face values on issued vouchers and cards. A robust performance in Europe and Asia (with organic growth of 4%). 2. Financial position On June 24, 2014, Sodexo completed a 1.1 billion euro bond issuance, comprising a 7.5-year tranche and a 12-year tranche, with an average interest rate of 2.1%. This issuance followed a 1.1 billion U.S. dollar private placement (USPP) carried out by the Group in March 2014, with maturities ranging between 5 and 15 years and an average rate of 3.8%. The two transactions allows Sodexo to refinance the borrowings maturing in March 2014 and January 2015 on more favorable terms, significantly extend the maturity of its debt and gradually reduce its average annual borrowing costs. Apart from these items, there were no material changes in the Group's financial position as of May 31, 2014 as compared to that presented in the Financial Report for First Half Fiscal 2014. 3. Outlook confirmed for Fiscal 2014 Sodexo is expecting a slightly slower fourth quarter than initially forecast, given the delayed start-up of certain major contracts.

The controversial poster series, which was rolled out last week online caught the attention of pop culture website Buzzfeed. An article on the site describes the illustrations as "shocking." "I think the act of domestic violence itself is shocking," said Hoax in a phone interview with ABC Action News Tuesday. "If we want to tackle it in any way we have to shock the audience in order for us to pass the message across." Hoax said he did not get Disney's approval to use their princesses. However, he feels they should understand his message that not all relationships have a fairytale ending. "At the end of the day, this is something I did to influence people in a positive way," he explained. Hoax will not reveal his identity nor his location in the world. However, he did give a hint as to what was his inspiration.
