Aviation is my true love, and this event culminates years of bittersweet, fond memories at the Ministry.”

— Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, Deputy Director General, BMOTA

NASSAU, BAHAMAS, August 2, 2021 / — “Officials from the Bahamas Ministry of Tourism & Aviation (BMOTA) are actively pursuing new business opportunities for the destination while at the 2021 Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) AirVenture Oshkosh Show in Wisconsin,” said Ellison “Tommy” Thompson, Deputy Director General, BMOTA.

“In addition to the high level of interest shown by persons wanting to visit The Bahamas at our booth, we have received so many enquiries from pilots who have attended our daily Flying to The Bahamas seminars, specifically designed for them, and who are planning a fly out to The Bahamas.”

“Four days into the seven days show, we have already held some very productive one-on-one meetings with key industry executives like Aircraft Owners Pilots Association (AOPA), on joint programs to further promote and enhance The Bahamas’ profile in the marketplace and to its 400,000 pilot-member body to further increase visitor arrivals. These programs will include joint marketing initiatives, expansion in digital communications, asset management access, among others,” he said.

“We cannot underestimate the importance of our presence at platforms such as Oshkosh or the value of working directly, face-to-face with leaders of AOPA, International Federal Partnership (IFP), EAA, our Fixed Based Operators and our Bahamas Flying Ambassadors. These relationships have helped propel The Bahamas to the top position, as the leader of General Aviation in the Caribbean,” Thompson reiterated.

“Just as this platform provides us with unique opportunities for growth, it also alerts us to hear first-hand, of any issues or potential situations these pilots are experiencing that could hinder their decision to visit our beautiful destination.”

“At this show, we discovered that not enough notice was given to pilots on the enforcement of the Bahamas Airport Authority’s $9 security processing fee which is charged to private aircraft and each person arriving internationally. While the fee was increased recently by $2 and had existed in The Bahamas for many years, the transparency of its regulation was inconsistent, and its enforcement took effect less than a month ago. Moving forward, we will work to correct these shortfalls and provide adequate notice to these pilots, of any upcoming changes,” Thompson said.

Thompson, who is also responsible for the BMOTA’s Global Sales and Marketing operation in the U.S., Canada, Europe and Latin America, has also spent a large portion of his career leading the aviation and vertical team. He is scheduled to demit office on August 27, 2021, after more than 43 years at the BMOTA. The EAA AirVenture Oshkosh Show will mark one of his last official assignments on the job.

“Aviation is my true love, and this event culminates years of bittersweet, fond memories at the Ministry. From the creation of our Bahamas Flying Ambassadors program more than 20 years ago, to the induction of our newest Flying Ambassador, Steveo Kinevo, who VLOGs his Bahamas flights to millions of viewers on YouTube and who, we discovered at Oshkosh three years ago, it is only fitting for me to end this chapter of my career and tenure on this great assignment,” Thompson concluded.


With over 700 islands and cays and 16 unique island destinations, The Bahamas lies just 50 miles off the coast of Florida, offering an easy flyaway escape that transports travelers away from their everyday. The Islands of The Bahamas have world-class fishing, diving, boating, birding and nature-based activities, thousands of miles of the earth’s most spectacular water and pristine beaches waiting for families, couples and adventurers. Explore all the islands have to offer at or on Facebook, YouTube or Instagram to see why It’s Better in The Bahamas.

7 Fun Activities to Do With Your Travel Buddy on Any Travel Adventure

Going on a travel adventure with a travel buddy? Don't forget to try out these activities!

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 / — Whether you call it a holiday, tour, getaway, vacation, or travel adventure, make your next trip with your travel buddy with the following fun outdoor activities.

– Hiking: Hiking is an outdoor activity you can try with your travel buddy on your next trip. Hiking means going on a long and vigorous walk on footpaths or trails in mountainous or other scenic terrains. All travel adventure involves hiking, and it takes you off the tourist zone into a solitude zone where you are one with nature. You can combine hiking with backpacking for the ultimate outdoor fun activity experience.

– Visit Museums: If you have a soft spot for art and history or want to learn about a country’s cultural heritage, you should visit a museum. Museums contain artifacts (both religious and cultural), objects, sculptures, and fascinating history that will give you a new perspective of our past world.

Museums provide hours of education and entertainment, and you can enjoy all the beautiful and bizarre creations you find on any topic of interest. Visiting a museum is a great way to start your vacation – especially if it is a center that celebrates the area you're visiting. Most cities have unique museums where you can enter for free or pay a small fee. They are cheap holiday fun activities, and it is a great way to know more about the town you are visiting

– Enjoy The Sea: The purpose of traveling is to enjoy the beauty of this rich and diverse world, isn't it? So, add ocean exploration to your travel bucket list! You can partake in fun water activities like surfing, kayaking, jet skiing, fishing, stand-up paddleboarding, or white water rafting. And if you are looking for something more adventurous, you can go diving and explore the beauty of the underworld marine life. Just make sure you go diving with an experienced dive guide – they will keep you safe and ensure you are comfortable inside the water. Oh, watch out for sharks!.. we are just kidding…or not :)

– Visit the Amusement Park: If you are a thrill-seeker, then the amusement park will give you all the satisfaction you need! Going to an amusement park is another fun outdoor activity you can try. Amusement parks come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so whether you like size or not, you can still enjoy other options, including live performances, quirky theaters, well-decorated themed shops, ice creams, and lots of mouthwatering food.

To enjoy your day at the amusement park, you need to go early and dress in comfortable clothes and shoes. Go with enough money to pay for food, snacks, souvenirs – and rides.

– Shop Till You Drop: Whether you are a nice person that loves to buy gifts for friends or you just love buying things because you can’t get them in your local area – shopping during your trip is always thrilling. Traditional clothing, handmade arts, unique accessories, chocolates, or even local food items are some of the things you can buy when shopping. Buying from a local artisan means you are supporting their community and preserving their cultural heritage.

Remember that anything you buy must fit in your suitcase, be shipped home, or must pass through customs, so buy only legal things! Have fun and shop till you drop!

– Cycling and Mountain Biking: Cycling and mountain biking is an adventurous activity that gives you lots of new paths to explore. While cycling gives you a more calming and peaceful vibe, mountain biking gives you an adrenaline rush that feels like you are floating on air. From peddling through leafy trails to raising dust in extreme mountain biking, this fun activity gives you the option for either a wild or tame adventure.

– Rock Climbing: For a more challenging and physical outdoor experience, we suggest you try rock climbing. Rock climbing allows you to stretch your body, and you can even turn it into a soft competition between you and other travelers. While your body might be screaming in pain, remember this activity is worth the stunning view at the top!

StoreSMART’s COVID-19 Vaccine Card Plastic Holders: Better Option than Lamination

Plastic Pocket for Vaccine Cards

Your cards are secure, but easily accessible.

What’s the best way to keep these important vaccination cards safe?

Some cards could be damaged by lamination. Information might need to be added to the card. StoreSMART’s plastic pockets avoids both problems. Cards remain safely protected and easily accessible.”

— Reenie Feingold, CEO and founder of StoreSMART

ROCHESTER, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 / — Millions of vaccinated Americans have been handed small paper cards issued by the Centers for Disease Control that document their immunization records. The little cards hold data that may be key to resuming work, travel, school, and leisure activities. So, what’s the best way to keep these important little cards safe?

StoreSMART has come up with a simple and inexpensive method—the Vaccine Card Plastic Holder—a clear plastic pocket that keeps proof of vaccination cards protected, easily visible, and free from destructive accidents and spills. Just slip the card into the plastic pocket and conveniently remove it when necessary.

“There has been some discussion around the desirability of laminating a proof of vaccination card,” says Reenie Feingold, CEO and founder of StoreSMART. “It’s been pointed out that some cards, printed on thermal paper or having thermal labels, could become damaged and made illegible by lamination. It’s also been suggested that, at some point, additional information about a booster shot might need to be added to the card. StoreSMART’s durable plastic pockets avoids both problems. Once slipped inside the clear, lightweight pocket, cards remain safely protected while they are easily accessible and can slip in and out quickly, whether in a purse, backpack, or pocket.”

Vaccinated individuals might want to take a few additional steps to safeguard their records. Feingold echoes recommendations by the CDC and other health professionals that vaccinated individuals take a picture of their card and e-mail it to themselves, plus store a photocopy of the card safely in home files.

StoreSMART’s Vaccine Card Plastic Holders have additional practical uses, too. They can help organize insurance information, social security cards, medical information, or appointment cards; or safely hold credit cards, driver’s licenses, tickets, cash, and other small items.

The 3 3/8” x 4 3/8” pockets have a 3” x 4” interior capacity. They are made of 8-gauge crystal clear vinyl for ultimate visibility and open on the short side with a ¼” lip.

Signing ceremony included a cake!

The agreement between Plymouth & Brockton ( and the U .S. Army signals the transportation company's commitment to hiring veterans

We see this relationship as a match of service organizations, a great fit towards our workforce needs as we emerge from this pandemic.”

— Win Sargent, Chairman and CEO, Plymouth & Brockton

PLYMOUTH, MA, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 / — In the presence of the U.S. Army’s New England Recruiting Battalion, representatives of Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company (also sometimes known as Plymouth & Brockton Bus Company) signed a PaYS agreement Friday which pledges the transportation company’s commitment to hiring veterans as P&B expands its workforce.

Winthrop Sargent, Chairman and CEO of Plymouth & Brockton, was joined by CPT Charlton P. Cornell, Commander, South Shore Recruiting Company (U.S. Army) and LTC Natasha Clarke, Battalion Commander, New England Recruiting Batallion. Additionally, Brian Concannon, civilian aide to the Secretary of the Army, addressed the crowd on the role that Plymouth & Brockton can play.

LTC Clarke expressed the U.S. Army’s gratitude for Plymouth & Brockton’s partnership with them, saying “It is great to partner with one of the oldest bus companies in the United States. When we say ‘Go Army,’ we also say ‘Go, P&B.’”

Brian Concannon, Civilian Aide to the Secretary of the Army (CASA), congratulated the P&B owners on their progress over the last two years and added, “It is great that every veteran seeking employment will have an interview with Plymouth & Brockton.”

Sargent said, “We are honored to enter this arrangement with the U.S. Army. When I mention this program to people, their eyes open up, a smile comes across their face, and they all say what a great idea it is. We can’t think of a better way to say thanks than with this small measure of support to all our returning veterans and service people. We see this relationship as a match of service organizations, a great fit towards our workforce needs as we emerge from this pandemic.”

John Cogliano, president of Plymouth & Brockton, said, “We of course are always looking for drivers, but we also anticipate openings in IT and in operations and are looking forward to our work with the U.S. Army.” Cogliano and Sargent were joined by fellow co-owner Paul Fuerst, who said, “Under the terms of this agreement, we will guarantee an interview to any veterans who apply to work here with us.”

In addition to the representatives of the U.S. Military, other guests included Massachusetts State Representatives Kathy LaNatra, Josh Cutler, David DeCoste, and Matt Muratore. In addition, Betty DeBenedictis, Chief of Staff for Representative Muratore, and Peter Forman, CEO of the South Shore Chamber of Commerce, were there to show support for the event.

Based in Plymouth, Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company has been serving the needs of the South Shore, Cape Cod and eastern MA since the late 1800s. The company was purchased in 2019 by area businessmen Winthrop Sargent, John Cogliano, and Paul Fuerst.
Sargent concluded his remarks by saying, “It would be remiss of me if I didn’t close with ‘Go Army, Army Strong, and Go P&B.”
About Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company
Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company was purchased in 2019 by businessmen Win Sargent, John Cogliano and Paul Fuerst. The former owners, the Anzuoni family of Plymouth had purchased Plymouth & Brockton Street Railway Company in 1948; two decades after P&B had converted from rail to bus transportation. Over the years, the company grew to provide expanded transportation service to and from Cape Cod and across the South Shore, express service to Logan Airport.

Two additional transportation companies –Brush Hill Transportation Company of Randolph, and McGinn Bus Company of Lynn – were also purchased by Sargent, Cogliano, and Fuerst. The company traces its roots to 1888, when it was first named The Plymouth & Kingston Street Railway. In 1928 the electric trolleys ceased operation and were replaced by Mack buses. Today, Plymouth & Brockton operates an extensive commuter service to Boston, including frequent trips to and from Logan Airport, as well as transportation service from Plymouth to the Cape and to Boston, as well as a newly-established route between Hyannis, MA and Rhode Island’s T.F. Green Airport. Plymouth & Brockton has recently added new, state-of-the-art motorcoaches to its fleet. The company headquarters are located at 8 Industrial Park Road, Plymouth, MA.

About the history of Sat Water Taffy, how it came to be and the processes used to create Salt Water Taffy

ST. GEORGE, UTAH, UNITED STATES, August 2, 2021 / — Sometimes it has been rumored that Salt Water Taffy has been made using seawater because of its name Salt Water Taffy. While there is a partial truth in that it uses Salt Water and Salt to make the taffy no seawater is used in the process of Salt Water Taffy found in the United States.

Taffy is very popular in beach resorts and gift stores and in various places including Las Vegas and right here in St. George, Utah. We also sell Salt Water Taffy online at According to Carouselhotel, It is believed that in 1888 a man named David Bradley had a candy store that was flooded during a storm. When this occurred the taffy he had at the store got soaked with ocean salt water. A young girl came to the store looking for taffy and he joked that he only had salt water taffy. She purchased the taffy and it became very popular. It was believed that it became known as salt water taffy because it was sold near the ocean and perhaps because of it's origins.

According to, the most popular saltwater taffy flavors are peppermint, vanilla, banana, watermelon, frosted cupcake, cotton candy, raspberry, strawberry, licorice, and caramel swirl. With over 70 varieties of flavors, best sellers and which flavors are most popular change frequently but these are some overall flavors that sell most frequently.

The History of Salt Water Taffy

Saltwater taffy is a variety of soft taffy that was produced in the 19th century in Atlantic City, New Jersey which started in the late 19th century.

Saltwater taffy is composed of sugar, cornstarch, corn syrup, glycerine, water, butter, salt, flavor, and food coloring. When taffy was originally invented it was first cooked in copper kettles over open coal fires, cooled on marble slabs, and pulled from a large hook.

For all those that love saltwater taffy, we highly recommend visiting our taffy store and gift shop in St. George, Utah, or for online ordering, we have our taffyshop site. We offer birthday gifts and various specials including the option for gifts and a variety of bags of taffy. We have over 80 flavors of gourmet taffy to choose from.

Taffy Shop's History

We have produced over millions of pieces of taffy and we offer a large variety of various flavors of gourmet taffy. Our taffy has gone from the shores of the Great Salt Lake to the shores of the internet. It took persistence, but after constant experimentation and customer feedback, we proudly boast the best salt water taffy in the world.

Taffy Shop's origins started in 1893 the Saltair resort was opened on the shores of the Great Salt Lake in Utah. In boasting rides, swimming, dining, music, and dancing on what was boated as "the world's largest dance floor". They introduced saltwater taffy to their guests. The taffy was pulled and cut by hand. It was an instant hit.

1920 – Over 500,000 visitors each year, the demand for taffy was hard to keep up with. Traditional flavors of taffy included vanilla, chocolate, licorice, cinnamon, banana, cherry, molasses, and root beer.

1920-1970 – The Great Depression, World War 2, Drout and Fires – During this time Salt Air was rebuilt bigger and better after being destroyed by a fire and was dubbed "The Coney Island of the West". The demand for Salt Water Taffy was hard to keep up with… until a drought left the shoreline a half-mile from the resort. Due to another fire, there would be no more saltwater taffy and no resort for decades.

1993 – Our founder purchased Salt Air and reopened its doors. In addition to opening the resort, he brought Taffy Shop Salt Water Taffy to the hallowed shores of the Great Salt Lake.

1998 – Taffy Shop Sets up a new website to share Salt Water Taffy with the world.

2000 – Sales from the internet exceed sales from the concession stand at Salt Air.

Today – Taffy Shop has sold millions of pieces of taffy and offers over 70 flavors of gourmet taffy. We have recently opened a Taffy Store St. George Utah.

Jon Parrish Attorney Discusses How the Hospitality Industry Can Bounce Back After COVID-19

Jon Parrish Attorney recently discussed how the hospitality industry can bounce back after COVID-19.

We can expect all travelers to be more concerned about sanitation than they were before the pandemic, and hotels and restaurants need to continue to strive for the highest levels of cleanliness”

— Jon Parrish Attorney

NAPLES,, FL, USA, August 2, 2021 / — The hospitality industry was one of the hardest hit by COVID-19. We've heard about the impact of COVID-19 on the hospitality and travel industry since the pandemic first took hold. However, Jon Parrish Attorney recently discussed how these businesses are preparing to bounce back after an extremely trying couple of years.

"Surviving the COVID-19 pandemic has been all about adaptation," Jon Parrish Attorney said. "The hospitality industry will have to continue adapting to see the profits they need to survive."

Jon Parrish explained that one of the best ways to adapt right now is to welcome cloud technologies. The hospitality industry has long been one that lives on person-to-person interaction, but that's not the case anymore.

This industry, like so many others, is also seeing a massive increase in telecommuting. Hotels and other parts of the hospitality industry could save big bucks by allowing some managers and other staff members to telecommute. Certain softwares combined with mobile concierge apps can help restaurants function fully without constant guest interaction. This can also help guests feel safer while the pandemic and other health issues remain common concerns.

"It's time to get millennial travelers on board," Jon Parrish Attorney said. "This demographic is eager to get out and travel, perhaps more than any other age group. They're ready to take advantage of low prices, and it's time to cater to them."

Parrish explained that millennials are expected to be the first ones to start traveling again now that some restrictions have been lifted. He stated that it's time to pay attention to their concerns.

"Millennials tend to value the authenticity of a company as well as transparency in communication," Jon Parrish said. "Those in the hospitality industry need to communicate openly about what they're doing to prevent further spread of the virus as well as how the travel experience may be different than before."
Millennials have become expert travelers, and they're incredibly tech-savvy. Parrish stated that the hospitality industry needs to become more available online, offer 24-hour correspondence, and stay up-to-date on social media. Millennials are ready to travel, and the hospitality industry needs to adapt.
Parrish concluded by stating that those in the hospitality industry need to continue focusing on health and safety techniques. Hotels and restaurants should offer food delivery options as well as self-service payment options, complimentary hand sanitizer, fewer gatherings, and more.

"We can expect all travelers to be more concerned about sanitation than they were before the pandemic, and hotels and restaurants need to continue to strive for the highest levels of cleanliness," Jon Parrish Attorney said. "Through adaptation and added effort, we can all see our hospitality businesses thrive after this pandemic."

As teachers of writing, we’re often asked, ‘What are people reading in India?’ The absence of any credible information was a gaping void that we are very proud to fill with India’s first comprehensive bestseller list,” said Chetan Mahajan, Co-founder, Himalayan Writing Retreat, while announcing the launch of the list.

HWR will release the weekly bestseller list in India with the top 50 Fiction, top 50 Non- Fiction and Top 25 list of children’s books. The list will comprise book-sales data backed by global marketing research firm Nielsen. It includes data from physical bookstores across the country as well as from online channels like Amazon and Flipkart. It will cover approximately 60% of all print book sales in India, making it the most comprehensive, credible bestseller list in the country.

“We believe that bestseller lists from sources who sell books cannot be neutral or unbiased. The reason the New York Times list is credible is because the NYT doesn’t try to sell you anything – just reports the books ranked by sales. Our bestseller list is the same. In fact, our list is that much richer because we are covering books in all languages” said Dr. Vandita Dubey, HWR co-founder and a published author.

“The Himalayan Writing Retreat is all heart. Their book club is free. Their first draft club (which helps authors finish their first drafts) supports a small Uttarakhand School. For a small, young business it is amazing how much they give back already. I am sure the HWR Bestseller list will also become a valuable free resource for readers and writers” says best selling author Kiran Manral.

The HWR team will analyze and present monthly and quarterly trends and commentary on the data from Nielsen as well. The list is now available at .
