Keeping your Winter Holiday Green

Keeping your Winter Holiday Green

We live in a time where people are becoming increasingly eco-conscious, and both cor-porations and individuals are doing more than ever to reduce their carbon footprint. This is fantastic news and very important in a bid to protect our planet and reduce the impact of global warming, but there is still a lot of work to be done. The good news is that even small changes can have a huge impact.
As a rapidly growing industry that’s set in natural surroundings, the skiing community must look for ways to keep winter holidays green without compromising on the quality of stays in catered ski chalets and shredding powder on the mountain. If you have a ski trip coming up and want to do your bit, here are a few simple ways to have an eco-friendly holiday.

 

Public Transportation

One great way to protect the environment is to opt for public transportation instead of taking your own car. The local public transport system is usually free with a lift pass, and offers a good chance to make a few new friends along the way. Using the local train network is also a good option if you want to venture outside of the resort and explore.

Recycling in Your Chalet

There has been a huge push to encourage recycling in ski resorts in recent years. Simply separate your rubbish from what can be recycled and take it down to the recycling point. This only takes a few minutes, but has a very positive impact on the environment.

Gear from Eco-Friendly Companies

There are a growing number of eco-friendly ski and snowboard companies that provide gear that does not harm the environment. This includes using eco-friendly waxes on snowboards and skis that are made from sustainable, reclaimed or recycled materials. For a great and guilt-free experience in the snow, why not consider renting or buying this equipment from a company that is doing its part to save our planet?

Chalet Hire from Reputable Companies

One of the easiest ways to go green is to book your catered ski chalet from a reputable company that has actively taken steps to combat damaging the environment. Take your time to research the company, and keep your eyes peeled for those that adhere to an AITO recognised environmental policy.

Getting There

Transport is always a concern when it comes to green holidays. Flying can produce three times more CO2 emissions per passenger than other forms of public transportation, so avoid this if possible. Good alternatives include driving (car shares are even better) and going by train (there are many stations throughout the Alps).

Offset Carbon

If you do decide to fly, you can still do your bit by offsetting your carbon (certain airlines provide this option at the time of booking). A few options include getting a shared transfer or bus from the airport/train station and using a transfer company that offsets their carbon.

Adhering to Resort Environmental Issues

If you choose a resort that has environmentally friendly practices in place, be sure to ad-here to these during your stay. The staff members know how to best protect the site, and they can make it easy for you to do your bit whilst still enjoying your stay.

Never has it been more important for people to reduce their environmental impact than today. Fortunately, this can be relatively straightforward during a stay in a catered ski chalet, and will allow us all to continue skiing without damaging the beautiful surround-ings.

The essential Ta-Nehisi Coates

The essential Ta-Nehisi Coates

Bestselling author Ta-Nehisi Coates pulls no punches in his writings about race relations in America. This morning, he discusses the fine print with our Martha Teichner:

It’s not all that often that a guy who writes about race can sell out a 3,000-seat theater … on a weeknight, especially. But Ta-Nehisi Coates routinely has fans — as many white as black — lined up around the block for tough talk some Americans might be uncomfortable hearing.

“If you are attempting to study American history and you don’t understand the force of white supremacy, you fundamentally misunderstand America,” he told an audience last month at the Metropolitan AME Church in Washington, D.C.

Teichner asked Coates, “Who is your audience?”

“Well, first of all I’m talking to myself,” he laughed. “Secondly, it’s probably young African-American kids who came up like me.”

ONE WORLD
“But whole bunches of white people buy your books in large numbers.”

“Yeah, I know, and I don’t know why it is!”

“Are you surprised?”

“Yes. I mean, I’m not surprised anymore, but initially I was very surprised.”

His latest book, “We Were Eight Years in Power: An American Tragedy” by Ta-Nehisi Coates (One World), an expanded version of essays he wrote for The Atlantic since 2008, was an instant bestseller. His last, a letter to his son about the hazards of being a black male in America (“Between the World and Me”), spent 80 weeks on The New York Times list. It won the National Book Award in 2015, the same year Ta-Nehisi Coates received a so-called MacArthur “genius grant.”

“To be black in the Baltimore of my youth was to be naked before the elements of the world, before all the guns, fists, knives, crack, rape, and disease. The nakedness is not an error, nor pathology. The nakedness is the correct and intended result of policy, the predictable upshot of people forced for centuries to live under fear.”

Coates said, “I try to write in such a way that it makes people feel things. I don’t want them to read what I’m writing and just say, ‘I think that’s right’ and agree with me. I want them to read something and then walk away and be haunted by it.”

Forty-two now, Coates grew up in Baltimore surrounded by violence … and books. His father, Paul Coates, a one-time Black Panther, published forgotten African-American writers in his basement, and worked for years as a research librarian at historically black Howard University, in Washington, D.C.

Author and essayist Ta-Nehisi Coates with correspondent Martha Teichner. CBS NEWS
Touring the university’s library, where Ta-Nehisi would come as a child with his father, Paul Coates said, “Much of this collection is older than the university. It’s older than 150 years; it goes back to the abolitionist period. I feel that energy when I enter this space.

“I wanted [Ta-Nehisi] to be connected to his community,” Paul said. “I wanted him to give back and understand that he was not separate from his community, that his successes could only be the successes of his community, and that his community was actually his lifeblood.”

Later, as a Howard student in the mid-’90s, Coates practically lived in this library. “You literally could go through that card catalog back there and in my recollection, it was almost anything I wanted to read written by a black author, I could just go get. I felt liberated in here.”

Ta-Nehisi Coates on the writing process
Howard, for him, was an awakening — less about his classes, more about self-education, experiencing a whole world in a small space: “You would meet students from Africa here, students from the Caribbean,” he said.

Although he didn’t graduate, it was at Howard that he began to write, and where he made friends with another student, Prince Jones, whose killing by police in 2000 as he drove to his fiance’s home, galvanized Coates’ rage, and made him the writer he is now.

“I had somebody who I knew, a living person whose life had value, and it was taken through no fault of his own,” Coates said. “I write what I write in the way that I write it. I’m not being abstract, you know. I’m talking about something that, you know, is a part of my life.”

A national correspondent for The Atlantic, his June 2014 cover story, “The Case for Reparations,” was his controversial ticket to prominence. His argument: that the wealth gap (“For every nickel of wealth that the average black family has, a white family has a dollar”) is the result of a long history of discriminatory housing policies, and must be redressed.

To Coates, “the very idea of uplift is the thing that is most threatening.”

Suddenly, he was the nation’s lightning rod on race.

 

An excerpt from the new book, published recently in The Atlantic, contends that Donald Trump couldn’t have been elected had his predecessor not been Barack Obama.

Barge Type: Know Your Spitzen From Your Clip

Barge Type: Know Your Spitzen From Your Clip

For newcomers to barge holidays, all barges may look the same. However, there are many types of ships with striking differences in history and design. This model evolved over 200 years, adapting to changing conditions and technology. In Europe, the barge – ships barges – connecting the English Channel, Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. Here is a brief overview of the most common vessels you might encounter on your barge vacation.
Tjalks and Klippers Barge Type: Know Your Spitzen From Your Clip

This barging tradition can be traced back to the seventeenth century. Originally wind-powered Tjalks were built of wood; In the nineteenth century, ship builders began to consider the possibility of iron and on twentieth century steel properties exploited by this industry. Therefore, the modern version of Tjalk is constructed of iron or steel, yet retains the stern arch of indigenous wood.

Designed for fast-flowing estuaries and rivers in the Netherlands, the tough Klipper is always built of iron or steel. The use of steel leads to a stronger vessel, although this introduces the danger of corrosion. Klipper’s steering sat under a stern round and ridden with wheels.

Beurtmotor and Luxemotor

Beurtmotor is used for passengers and cargo and often travels to a reliable schedule, replacing steam-powered steamers. It became even more popular with the introduction of diesel engines because their scheduling was more consistent than ever before. Like other barges, Beurtmotor was built to navigate the shallow waters – anywhere between 3 and about 10 feet of water. However this is not a limitation, as most inland waters in western Europe conform to this requirement.

Luxemotor trailblazing was built in the early 20th century and was the first barge to have its own machine. Driving on Beurtmotor’s success, they are quite luxurious with plenty of space – including kitchens and toilets – as well as a pointy bow that is ideal for more open waters.

Spitz

Spitz has a long and varied history. They were built to the standard of Freycinet imposed by Napoleon during the standardization period, and the ship was first withdrawn by hand (or horse). However, after the Second World War many Belgian Spitz ships were kitted out with tank machines that were often disabled. With some adjustments at the stern to fix the wheel, the Spitz Motor version is designed for canals in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.

European Air Line: Our Fleet

The European Airway fleet includes a barge with lots of history behind them. Vacation barges match the history lover and cruise ship enthusiasts. For example, L’Art de Vivre – the oldest fleet – is an English model and built in the First World War to supply allied forces in the Somme. The beautiful Rosa is the Dutch Clipper carrying a variety of cargo in the early 20th century Dutch. Both now enjoy retirement by walking the beautiful streets of France, lovingly recovering in a way that celebrates their stunning legacy. Barge Type: Know Your Spitzen From Your Clip

Ski in the New Year at These Top Resorts

Ski in the New Year at These Top Resorts

New Year’s Eve is supposed to be the biggest party of the year, but too often it is a let-down and no different to your average night out. This year, why not see out 2017 with a bang by jetting off for an exhilarating ski break? Ski resorts are superb places to see in the New Year as you can shred the slopes and then party till the early hours in the fresh snow under an endless blanket of stars. This certainly beats paying to go to the local pub back home!
There are plenty of great resorts around Europe that have wild New Year’s Eve parties and excellent skiing, but here are a few of the best:

 

Meribel

Meribel is always a cracking place for New Year and a favourite with Brits. The parties kick off with a cool torch-lit descent to the Chaudanne area where there is an enormous fireworks display. You are spoilt for choice for epic parties after this, and a lively atmos-phere sweeps across the entire resort. Le Rond Point is a popular spot if you want to see in 2018 by dancing until the early hours, whilst Le Poste de Secours is the place to be for cocktails. Jacks and Dicks Tea Bar are also worth checking out.

In terms of skiing, Meribel has lots of great runs and easy access to the 600km slopes across Le Trois Valleys – perfect!

Tignes

The NYE parties at Tignes are legendary and the best choice for raucous party animals. They host the biggest free outdoor party in all of Europe, as the resort is transformed into a mammoth open-air music festival that goes on well into January 1st. Thumping tunes, fireworks and fire displays in the snow under the stars is the perfect way to end the year! Tignes always pulls huge names too, such as David Guetta and Joachim Garraud.

What better way to cure your hangover than hitting the slopes? Tignes has excellent conditions, 150 km of local slopes and access to Val d’Isère if you wish.

Val d’Isère

Val d’Isère is, in my humble opinion, the prettiest town in the Alps and a great setting for a special New Year’s Eve. It is home to many excellent bars, pubs and clubs, so you should easily be able to find something that suits your taste for the big night. Places like the Doudoune Club pull big names and even rival some UK clubs! Additionally, the town centre is an amazing place to be when the clock strikes 12 as everyone comes together for a grand countdown and champagne showers.

As most of the slopes being above 2500m, there will be terrific skiing on offer here too.

Mayrhofen

Mayrhofen in Tyrol, Austria is another popular destination for NYE thanks to the variety of options on offer. It is home to lots of cool establishments, most notably the Ice Bar and Gasthof Bruecke which both have wild NYE parties with live music and dancing on tables deep into the new year. Another reason that I recommend Mayrhofen is the New Year’s Eve train, which is a party train from Jenbach to Mayrhofen which stops off for live music and drinks at each stop! There is also a horse-drawn carriage procession to the snowy racecourse on New Year’s Day (if you’re not too hungover!).

Mayrhofen also has 159 km of piste and features Austria’s steepest run – Harakiri.

Any of these resorts would be a superb choice for an unforgettable New Year filled with snow, skiing, partying and joy. Shuttle Direct can get you, your troops and all your ski gear to any of these resorts with ease, so you can sit back and start planning how to bring in 2018!

How to Keep Over 50 and Still Enjoying Eating

How to Keep Over 50 and Still Enjoying Eating

When we get older, our body composition changes. This is often due to less active, which leads to a reduction in basal metabolic rate (BMR).

With small muscles to burn calories, we may feel that we can not eat as much as we use without gaining weight. Changes in hormones, taste, energy levels, and other nutrient intake can also affect our fitness and health.

However, keeping up to 50 does not mean you still can not eat. Learn how to get the balance with these great tips.

Stay here
Many people think our metabolism is down to age, but this is not true.

What actually happens is that our activity levels are reduced and we lose the mass of muscles as a result. With a little muscle the body needs less energy, then the food is stored as fat instead of being burned. Our basal metabolic rate (BMR) then slows down as a change in our body composition.

The easiest way to overcome the slow BMR is to stay active. Walking is a good exercise and low effect that will help burn calories and maintain muscle mass. Walking is also good for the heart and helps improve your mood. How to Keep Over 50 and Still Enjoying Eating

Other low-impact exercises to try include gardening, swimming, yoga, and pilates.

Cut Calories, Not Flavored
With small changes to the foods you love, you can save a lot of calories and still enjoy eating.

Many people find that reducing carbohydrate intake helps them stay in shape. Why not try squash spithetti as an alternative to pasta? And even if you are not a baker, this low carbohydrate recipe is delicious and easy to make.

Alternatively, you can make small changes to the products you eat daily, such as choosing low-fat dairy products from the full fat version. Many flavors are the same but are packed in less calories.

Another good tip is to try to make more food without food. Try Bolognese beans or make soup with vegetables and lentils. You will dramatically reduce your calories and saturated fat bypassing the meat a few nights a week. How to Keep Over 50 and Still Enjoying Eating

Consider Supplements
Another important part of maintaining health is maintaining health.

Our body becomes less efficient to absorb some nutrients as we grow older, so it is important to make calories we consume as solid nutrients to stay healthy.

Without a major vitamin, it is difficult for your body to properly process the food into energy, which means you may feel tired and indecent. You can also endanger yourself and more serious illness.

Some nutrients you may lack include Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Calcium, Vitamin D, Fiber, and Omega-3 Fat.

It is better to get nutrition through your diet but you may need to take supplements. Consult your doctor to discuss your diet and whether these supplements will help you stay fit over 50.

Drinking water
Our thirst also decreases with age, so it may not be easy to say when we are dehydrated.

Drinking water can help reduce hunger, increase energy and facilitate digestion.

And do not drink enough water can cause urinary tract infections and cause memory problems, so getting enough water is beneficial for our physical and mental health.

Keep a small bottle of water in your refrigerator and drink from them frequently, even if you do not feel thirsty. You need to find about eight cups daily for good health.

Sleep well
Staying anywhere is roughly about. As well as your diet and activity level, getting enough sleep is an important part of it.

Besides giving you the opportunity to relax your mind and body, sleep helps control the hormones that control hunger gestures. No deep sleep can disturb this signal and cheat your brain by thinking you’re hungry when you do not.

When we grow older, it is difficult to enjoy a good night’s sleep, perhaps due to hormonal factors, physical discomfort or changes in our oxygen consumption.

If you find it difficult to sleep at night, easy solution to help you sleep better will help.

How To Stay Fit Over 50
Staying above 50 does not mean you can not enjoy the same food or you need to make a drastic change.

With the small changes that persist your lifestyle and diet, you can take care of your health and stay fit for the coming year.

Feel the True Burgundy on your French Cruise Barge

Feel the True Burgundy on your French Cruise Barge

It is impossible to visit France and not be fascinated with its exquisite cuisine. For the French, food is a way of life; The food is much more than just time to eat, but there is time to collect, exchange views and enjoy the delights of well prepared food together.
For this reason food in France is impassable. Expect a casual alcoholic drink – perhaps accompanied by a tempting flavor of entertaining – to produce an excellent three or four course meal complete with wine and cheese.

Visitors who enjoy French barge cruises will find that the pace of the meal reflects the soft flow of water beneath them, and the wines on their tables. Food is part of the culture in France, and eating it is a relaxing exploration of the land. Feel the True Burgundy on your French Cruise Barge

Taste of Burgundy

To really say that you have ‘explored’ the beautiful Burgundy region with your French yacht, you have to spend a lot of time tasting rich and rich dishes and fine wines elegantly wandering the streets and fields. Burgundy is an area where food and wine, sourced from the same rich lotus, is an integral part of the region itself.

Think of a stew full of the flavor of the flesh raised in the field; wine grows in its incessant vineyard; mustard seeds from ripe seeds in the sun; and snails feeding on the famous vines. This is the herb that became the heart of Burgundy cuisine. Feel the True Burgundy on your French Cruise Barge

Dishes to Find

While visitors to France often look forward to excellent ‘French’ food, it’s worth remembering before you leave for a French cruise ship to Burgundy, each region has its own unique cuisine, fed by local flavors and ingredients. However, in the Burgundy case, these ingredients have become so popular in the world that local dishes in the region have become part of what we now consider to be typical French cuisine.

Dishes like Boeuf Bouguignon – where the notorious local red wine combined with Charolais cattle in the region to create a hearty mellow soup full of flavor – has become a popular staple in many French brasseries. Other dishes, such as escargots à la Bourguignonne, are not only made in this region, but depend on local black slugs that are raised and fed on local grape leaves.

You may have seen on the AOC Poulet de Bresse menu, referring to the chicken raised in and around the Bresse in Burgundy. Chicken laying free with rich and soft milk and wheat that likes meat, making it a perfect ingredient for any chicken dish. Combine this chicken with the famous local Dijon mustard and some excellent local Chablis and you will have a feast suitable for a king (or guests traveling on a French yacht). Feel the True Burgundy on your French Cruise Barge

Pairing Wine

Of course, you can not visit Burgundy without trying its most famous exports. From world-renowned Chablis to its beautiful pink and white colors, Burgundy wine is adored all over the world. For locals in the region, beautiful wines are a delicate accompaniment to their flavoursome cuisine. For visitors who pair wine made from grapes grown in vineyards with food produced from the same landscape, Burgundy gastronomy can be a wonderful culinary adventure.
