For this event we will taste a total of six sparkling wines, discuss and educate on the various regions and why Champagne is generally so much more known than other sparkling wines.

Kits for the tasting are already selling quite well! And the kits which include wine are extremely limited. Of the three tiers of packages being offered, only the one kit, priced at $120, includes wine — and we are able to ship that kit to many states. However, for anyone in a state where we cannot ship wine, we have two options for you to join and participate in the live Zoom event. Every kit includes a pdf booklet, a link to the webinar and a materials list — which allows you to purchase the wines we recommend at your local wine store.

The top tier kit includes six 375ml bottles of wine, which is enough wine for four people to taste during the webinar. With many restaurants and bars operating at a reduced capacity or forced to be closed after 10pm as a result of COVID-19 precautions and regulations, this digital event is a safe, smart and fun way to spend New Year’s Eve with a small group of family and friends. Registration closes for the complete kit as well as the $20 mailed, print workbook kit on Dec. 12, 2020. Registration for the entry level $10 digital pdf & zoom link package closes on Dec. 26, 2020.

National Bell Festival Celebrates Second Annual Event on January 1

Bells Ringing on New Year's Day

Bells Ringing on New Year’s Day

A symphony of sound will blanket the nation’s capital as it rings in 2021 with several free virtual and outdoor events for a great cause.

Now, more than ever, we celebrate the spirit of community, togetherness, and collected potential. Join in that celebration and make it ring with us this New Year's Day.”

— Paul Ashe, Director, National Bell Festival

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, December 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Prepare to ring in the New Year with the National Bell Festival (BellFest) in Washington, DC, taking place this New Year’s Day. BellFest presents a wide array of free and safe programming which celebrates the history of our nation through the lens of DC’s often overlooked bells and bell towers: the jubilation of independence, the pain of civil war, the sacredness of community, and the resounding hope of tomorrow.

Bells will sound overhead at 2:00pm Eastern time, with participating towers throughout Washington, DC, and in a growing list of cities and townships throughout the country. This symbolic gesture of ringing bells together celebrates our commitment to community and our great ambitions for the year ahead.

The festival is designed to reignite an appreciation for bell towers as sentinels of our city, and to raise critical funding for the care and restoration of historic bells. For its first service project, BellFest will refurbish the old bell at Georgetown Lutheran Church on Wisconsin Avenue. Cast centuries ago, the bell was lost in the Civil War and recovered decades later, but hasn’t rung since. In commemoration of the congregation’s 250th anniversary, BellFest will fund the restoration and installation of this bell as a historic artifact of the Georgetown community.

All BellFest events are free with limited availability, and donations to support the National Bell Festival’s efforts are accepted. Events include:

Why You Should Always Say YES to Hosting an Exchange Student

Exchange student with host sibling

Rickett Family with exchange student

Quickly, she was no longer just an exchange student, she was a member of our family.”

— Kayla Rickett

PORTLAND, OREGON, UNITED STATES, December 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Education Travel & Culture is always looking for host families. Yes, even through the pandemic. Our students are resilient and still want to spend their year abroad to learn a new culture, spread love and make a new family. January 2021 starts off a new season for us with about 30 students coming for the semester. Hear from one of our families and why they suggest you should always say YES to hosting!

"I have always wanted a daughter, always. But god blessed me with the two, most precious boys I’ve ever laid eyes on. And then one night, my insomnia-induced Facebook browsing led me to a decision that has changed my life, for the better, forever.

I seen a post in a Facebook group about hosting an exchange student that peaked my interest. I had went to high school with a few and had the best experience seeing my home town and high school through somebody else’s eyes. So I talked with Nathan (my husband) and we both agreed, why not give it a shot?

I requested more information on hosting a student and the next morning (mind you, this was like 1130 at night) this amazing lady, Teresa (ETC senior field manager), contacted me. A few hours later I had filled out a hosting application and picked out our first student! It happened SO fast, after I had tome to think about it, I had no clue what I had gotten myself into. Little did I know, that one decision opened up such an amazing opportunity for my family.

Fast forward 10 days and Teresa called me again and asked me if I was interested in being a local coordinator for the exchange company, because I had a couple of friends interested in hosting a student, too, so they needed somebody to oversee those students while they were here. Once again, sure! Why not?!

When Marina arrived, I was terrified! Wondering what I had gotten myself into. She probably thought we were crazy, and probably still does. But quickly, she was no longer just an exchange student, she was a member of our family. My boys absolutely adore her, their sister, and she is absolutely fantastic with them. She’s funny, sweet, there is never a dull moment. Had I know how amazing this would have been, I would have done it sooner.

And here I am, 7 months later, overseeing 6 of the sweetest girls from Spain, Germany, and Italy. I’ve made new lasting friendships with my amazing host families. I’ve traveled to San Diego and Miami, which is something I would have never done by myself if not for ETC.

Because of ETC I now have a daughter, lifelong friendships with some of the best ladies I have ever met, and a new understanding of “blood doesn’t make a family.” I am forever grateful for that Facebook post I found." – The Rickett's – Host Family for ETC

Timeshare Consumer Association: Barclays facing potential loss of £billions over fresh timeshare mis-selling claims

Barclays facing billions more in claims over timeshare loans

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, December 4, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Barclays Partner Finance, already ordered to repay millions of pounds following scrutiny over their relationship with disgraced Maltese timeshare company Azure, are potentially facing further billions in claims it has been revealed today.

Andrew Cooper, CEO of European Consumer Claims (ECC) the company who led the challenge earlier this year which resulted in Barclays being ordered to pay back 'suspect loan' victims a total of £26 million pounds, says: "There is a lot more to come."

Compensation
ECC, which represents victims of timeshare related malfeasance, collaborated with lawyers from the Spanish firm M1 Legal, working in conjunction with UK solicitors and barristers on the case.

"It was a challenge," says Cooper. "Barclays fought their corner, but the FCA tribunal came to the right decision in awarding money back to the victims. If anything we believe it didn't go far enough, and in fact an appeal is in progress to increase the compensation awards."

Financial Times
Mr Cooper, ECC and M1 Legal made the lead story of the Financial Times last month as their victory over the banking giant was reported in the world respected publication.

"Obviously it was a positive result to get some financial relief for these Azure victims," Andrew Cooper says, "but it turns out we have barely scratched the surface. Barclays were also providing loans to other giant timeshare companies like Club La Costa and Silverpoint, and as with Azure, the same people processing the loan applications were the sales people pressuring the customers to sign up on the day; a clear conflict of interests that ought to raise red flags with any responsible lender."

"Over a £billion" in liabilities
Barclays is not the only financial institution in ECC's crosshairs. "Hitachi Personal Finance and Shawbrook Bank also provided loans for high pressure timeshare sales operations," says Cooper. "There are over 100,000 owners just between Club La Costa, Azure and Silverpoint, and based on our research, at least 80% of those had loans from these finance entities, with an average value of over £10,000 each. Add to that the thousands more timeshare resorts in Europe and you can see that the figure is substantial.

"We are examining an estimated total of well over a £billion in liabilities that we believe is owed to people who may have been mis-sold to by the timeshare sales staff at these resorts."

"Anyone who bought a timeshare membership of any kind, felt under pressure and felt mis-sold can contact ECC to find out if we can help you," Mr Cooper
adds. "Just let us know when and where you bought, and have your documents to hand. One of our team will be able to let you know fairly quickly if you might qualify to join the legal action."

Reputation
"This is a huge deal" says Daniel Keating of the Timeshare Consumer Association. "Many people see these banks as having been complicit with disreputable timeshare operations and it's a reputation they will want to disassociate from as swiftly as possible. Frankly we would have expected more oversight from responsible financial institutions like these. Compensation for the victims should be the very first consideration. We will follow the legal proceedings with interest."
