Discover Ireland’s Grand Canal on a Barge Cruise

Discover Ireland’s Grand Canal on a Barge Cruise

For your next holiday, take a barge cruise down the Grand Canal and travel from Dublin to Shannon to discover all Ireland has to offer. You can admire the gorgeous green countryside and delightful little cottages that line the waterway, while diving into its interesting and intricate history as a commercial route which allowed the surrounding towns to prosper.
Length and Route

 

The Grand Canal in Ireland extends for 117 kilometres. Passing through Leinster, it flows from Ringsend in Dublin to the Shannon Harbour in County Offaly. This is the main route, built to connect the capital city with the country’s midlands. The waterway does also have another run that spreads from Lowtown in Couty Kildare to the River Barrow in Athy. There are also various branches that link up with four other towns, though it’s worth mentioning that your barge cruise will probably stick to the main route.

Along the way, you can enjoy beautiful views of Irish towns and villages with their charming little cottages, while admiring the many bridges that arch over the smooth water. The fauna and flora also remain untouched, with grassy towpaths and side roads lining the waterway and adding to the iconic Irish countryside feel.

History of the Grand Canal

Though the canal was closed to commercial traffic in the mid-twentieth century, it has since been restored to its former glory and regularly welcomes a variety of boats and barge cruises. It still features the original 43 locks, five of which are, from an engineering point of view, particularly interesting as they are double locks. Back in the day, these would have allowed the traffic to move faster as two boats can pass at once and there’s more chance of reaching a lock that’s in your favour. The lock-keepers’ cottages have also been refurbished to celebrate the history of this canal…

Relationship with The Guinness Factory

…And what a history it is! The Grand Canal played a crucial role in the creation and development of the Guinness factory. In 1759, two years after the construction of the canal began, Arthur Guinness founded his famous brewery. Thanks to the waterway, he could transport heavy loads of the raw materials he needed far more cheaply and effectively than by road. It was also an ideal way of exporting his finished product. When you pass through the eighth lock on a barge cruise, keep your eyes peeled for the Guinness filter beds which are still used by Arthur’s company today.

Impact of the Famine

In the first half of the nineteenth century, Ireland’s economy began to fail. As people lost their jobs, the Commission for Public Works set them to work on creating the canal. This was a successful scheme until the potato crops failed and the Great Famine broke out. Work had to be halted as labour became scarce. Eventually, trade and commerce on the canal declined, particularly as the construction of the railroads had just started.

By the 1980s, the Grand Canal had become something of a dumping ground. Thankfully, in 1986 it received a funding injection that sought to rejuvenate the canal and restore it to its former glory. Today boat traffic from barge cruises has increased and thousands are able to enjoy this historic waterway.

Have a Go at Heli-skiing! A Novice’s Guide

Have a Go at Heli-skiing! A Novice’s Guide

If you’re an adrenaline junkie and skiing pro looking for a new, invigorating energy boost, then you need to get yourself booked onto a heli-skiing break. Being dropped by helicopter to tackle untouched powder runs offers an unadulterated and unforgettable thrill, and a totally immersive experience that will have you hooked! Skip the chairlifts and crowded pistes, and enjoy a vertical drop like never before.
What to Expect From Heli-Skiing

 

You might think heli-skiing is only for top athletes, but this is not so – as long as you’re willing to save up a bit of cash and have several seasons experience of skiing behind you, then you’re ready to go. Nonetheless, it does pay to do some fitness preparation beforehand, and that does involve working up some long runs down at a resort. Set yourself a tough 6-8 week plan to get yourself in the best shape possible – when heli-skiing you’re carving your own path, so getting yourself comfortable covering over 12,000 vertical feet in a day will serve you well. In particular, work on your muscle development and cardio exercise before you go – you’ll thank yourself for it when the fresh powder fights back at the end of a long day!

Another good way to prepare is to choose wisely when to go: January has great powder skiing, as the colder weather preserves the snow, but you may prefer the spring season when the lighter days allows for more time to explore. The going may also depend on where you choose to get dropped off – the grand national parks of Alaska and Canada are particular favourites among aficionados for the higher vertical drops.

Wherever and whenever you go, pack light, layer up and make sure you’re well fuelled before the trip – get in a lot of carbs at breakfast and fully hydrate yourself, as you will have a long and rewarding day ahead of you!

Precautions and Safety Tips

Make sure to check your provider closely before booking a trip. Instructors are often among the very best, but it’s always good to make sure they have proper qualifications and certification from official organisations before embarking on a trip. In particular, it pays dividends to go with an instructor who can advise you of terrain, and who can properly prepare you with avalanche safety information and how to use it. Having more than one guide in a group is also a good idea, so that one of them can act as a tail guide in case you need to slow down.

It’s worth noting that when you get dropped off by helicopter, you’re not actually jumping out, stuntman-style – you’ll dock first before you get out. Nevertheless, that’s not to say the ride itself won’t be the most intense part; many heli-skiers find it calmer when they’re out on the snow!

Of course, one of the best precautions you can take is get yourself decked out with some foolproof skiing travel insurance. Part of the thrill of heli-skiing is in the challenge, but there’s no point in facing new challenges if you don’t allow yourself to get picked back up when you don’t quite make it the first time, particularly when you’re a rookie. With comprehensive skiing travel insurance cover, you can give yourself that extra peace of mind to keep you covered for any eventuality. For the best heli-skiing travel insurance you can find, our guys at InsureMore will have the answer.

Understanding Aviation Maintenance Repair and Overhaul

Understanding Aviation Maintenance Repair and Overhaul

The aviation industry is growing at a substantial rate, which certainly is good news for stakeholders, from passengers and airport sponsors to institutional investors and aviation service providers. Of course, the industry runs on services in many different segments, and one of the major services provided is MRO, or Maintenance, Repair, and Overhaul. In this post, we will describe the kind of work that these service providers offer with regards to aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul management, and why this sector matters for operational success. The need for MRO services Regardless of the location, facilities and other services offered at an airport, the aviation industry depends on one major aspect – operational aircraft. Aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul management is all about aircraft servicing and management. Commercial airlines and private operators prefer to delegate maintenance tasks to specialized companies offering aviation maintenance. These companies have the necessary operational expertise and experience and also have a great depth of capabilities through their training, tooling and authorizations. These services are critical as projecting and managing maintenance schedules will determine whether aircraft will be operational and available to meet their mission requirements. With today’s increasing demand, MRO service providers are pertinent, necessary, and extremely relevant to keep aircraft and their passengers moving on schedule. What do MRO management services offer? As MRO service providers grow, the need for professional management increases as well. In most cases, maintenance and repair work is dependent upon a number of different requirements and regulations, and the nature of contracts with end users varies considerably. Owners and operators are focused on cost control, quality, and minimizing the downtime of their assets. They also seek to source more services from single source providers, e.g. MOR companies with a breadth of capabilities and authorizations which allows for more services to be provided during a single maintenance event. Demand for aviation MRO services is driven by mandatory maintenance, which occur on fixed flight hour, time-based or activity based intervals. The combination of an aging fleet coupled with increasing utilization underpins the increasing demand forecast for the next 5-10 years. The need for aviation maintenance, repair and overhaul management will continue to increase, and as aircraft utilization continues to grow the need for such services will become more prominent in years to come. Consequently, it is important to choose a company that has the necessary experience and expertise for your particular maintenance requirements to meet your mission profile and keep your aircraft and passengers moving.

The River Thames: A Guide to Barging

The River Thames: A Guide to Barging

The River Thames is the spine, the lifeblood and the main attraction of one of the best-known and historically important cities on the planet. But while the section that flows through London is certainly the most high profile, the 215 miles of the Thames slice England, stretching from the Cotswolds at Cirencester, through rural towns and villages to Oxford, London and finally emptying out into the North Sea.
Historically, the Thames has been a vital trade route right back to Roman times. Today, while the Port of London handles around 10% of the entire country’s commercial shipping, the quieter sections of the waterway appeal to private leisure vessels and barge cruise operators.

 

Built On a River

When the Romans arrived in Britain in AD 43, they settled at the most strategic site on the river to build their city, Londinium. From the port they traded extensively throughout the Mediterranean and also made roads to link the capital with the rest of the country. It was the Romans who built the first bridge to span the river, on the site that would later be the crossing of the city’s famous London Bridge.

Bridges and Locks

The bridges that were built across the Thames have become icons of engineering in themselves. Tower Bridge is one of the most acclaimed, and has been an instantly recognisable landmark of the capital since its construction in 1894. The incredible mechanism that allows for its raising and lowering still functions with perfect precision. Westminster Bridge sits under the shadow of Big Ben and is considered one of the most elegant of all in terms of its architecture. The Millennium Footbridge is the city’s newest, opened in 2000 and crossing the river at St Paul’s Cathedral.

There are 45 locks along the river and each has its own history; some date back to the 1500s while others were variously constructed through the 1700-1800s. While in earlier times weirs were built in order to divert the flow of the water to use in mills, as the traffic increased, many of these were converted or used alongside locks, to allow the passage of vessels to navigate the fall of the river. Today, for those on a barge cruise, navigating the locks is one of the most interesting and anticipated parts of the experience.

Attractions en Route

The beauty of exploring the route of the Thames by barge cruise is the constant accompaniment of scenic views and historical and cultural attractions. Runneymede, the site where King John signed the highly significant Magna Carta document, is a popular disembarkation point. As well as the official monument to the event, the lovely woodlands are filled with wildlife and walking paths.

Windsor Castle is another high profile attraction that can be visited along the river, and the oldest and largest castle in the world lives up to the pomp and grandeur of its reputation (the Queen may even be in residence). At Henley-on-Thames, the renowned River and Rowing Museum celebrates not only the river itself, but also the international sport of rowing for which the town has become globally recognised.

Meandering Through History

The elegant curves of the Thames have defined the history of Britain in so many ways. The privilege of being able to traverse its length on a modern day barge cruise offers a unique insight and a truly memorable way in which to see to the country.

New dynamic atrium from Printemps

New dynamic atrium from Printemps

Printemps, the historic department store on Boulevard Haussmann in Paris, France, gets a makeover with a stunning atrium that runs vertically from the lower floor to the 9th floor.
Through its long history, Printemps is the first department store to use electricity, lift lifts and introduce modern architectural achievements such as large spiral staircases and 42-meter-tall dome. As part of today’s Printemps reconstruction, the goal is to introduce a new atrium that allows visitors to see all levels. New dynamic atrium from Printemps

The interdisciplinary research-based architecture studio, UUfie, in charge of this dynamic feature applies the concept of vertical dome, which is also called the hijab into the atrium as it pierces the heart of the building; reminded and saluted the store iconic stained glass dome seen in 1894. The hijab weighs 24 tons, but appears to float in front of a vertical circulation with glass floors and mirrored ceilings. 25.5 meters tall and 12.5 meters wide, consisting of a white painted aluminum panel with approximately 17,200 axis shaped openings that reveal the glass layer of Dichroic, which changes color based on people’s point of view, which gives it colorful qualities. The floral relief created by two layers of aluminum surface is an interpretation of the image found in historic stained glass; diverted to repetitive patterns which are then randomized to form a color burst on the white surface. New dynamic atrium from Printemps

New dynamic atrium from Printemps geometry is understood by connecting the four angles of emptiness with simple curves in plan and elevation. The combination of two-dimensional curved panels gives the overall shape of the full veil. Proper assembly allows for perfect joint control between each panel. On the opposite side of the hijab is a one-way mirror wall covering the twelve newly installed escalators. This creates a reflection that complements the hijab symmetry and gives the appearance of a widened void.

Visitors approach the space through the dark hallway to the escalator behind a one-way mirror. Between floors 4-8, a hole in the wall of a one-way mirror gives an unobstructed view of the hijab. Development through space provides a variety of perspectives and moments to experience the ever-changing color and color changes in the void. Acting as the backbone of the main building, it channeled energy to different retail concepts on every floor and brought some of the building’s history to date.

To negotiate existing building constraints and strict fire regulations has resulted in a symbolic and expressive space of ingenuity in architecture and engineering. The entire project was built in just eight months, while the shops are still operating. New dynamic atrium from Printemps

Organisations and their corporate brand management

Organisations and their corporate brand management

Organisations are now dealing with the bigger challenge in terms of branding. It has found out that corporate brand has complicated and difficult rapidly changing fundamentals. Balmer (2001) reflects the organisations subcultures. Consider the example of Mercedes its corporate brand stands for high class, luxury and high performance and it can be clearly seen in the sub culture of C-class S-class and M-class.
The key question arises here should the organization adapt the concept branding? Corporate brands have generally longer life cycle then the product brand. There is a bigger drawback attached to corporate branding as if a company gets a bad publicity of its corporate brand it will affect its all the products. Balmer (2003) describes the corporate brand as having the role of a driver for many stakeholders, thus highlighting the increasing importance of corporate branding. Olins recommended that the organization with no understanding of what are they about?

 

Corporate branding must be used properly and organize the branding and behave in an ethical way. Coca Cola has used the advantage unethically when first introduced its water Dasani in U.K and it was later discovered it was nothing but Tap water from general water supply. It can also be seen in McDonald’s case that they are portrayed as McDonald’s that they are selling McDonald’s outlets. It is important for the organization with a corporate branding like Coca Cola, and Mercedes to stick with the values ​​they present.

Essay above suggests that awareness in a competitive market. Corporate brand have impact both externally and internally. Corporate brand have many benefits gaining the competitive advantages over its competitors and achieving the economies of scale. Organizations must manage their corporate orders effectively and efficiently in order to get the maximum benefit.

It can also conclude from the authors mentioned above that many organisations without a strong corporate brand will face difficulties in coming future. So organisations without a corporate brand such as Proctor and Gamble and Unilever have to work towards the achieving one strong corporate brand.

Effective and strategic support of a corporate brand can make it easier for organisations to do business. Corporate branding is stronger then the quality and price of a product.

Live in the Dry Season in the Galapagos

Live in the Dry Season in the Galapagos

Usually, the word “dry season” conjures up arid vision, inadequate. But for the outlying islands of the Galapagos Islands, the dry season is nothing boring.
Unlike some other destinations around the world, the dry moon is actually an ideal time for nature lovers to start a wildlife voyage in the Galapagos. It does not experience a typical tropical climate, and between July and December is actually a time of great activity, migration and breeding. Live in the Dry Season in the Galapagos

What Happens During The Dry Moon?

The archipelago has two distinct seasons: dry and wet. The season here is directly influenced by the cold Humboldt Current, which mixes with warm water from the equatorial currents and causes the rich nutrients (from Humboldt) to rise to the surface. During the dry period of six months, currents are driven toward the island by prevailing trade winds, which have a profound effect on local ecology.

Animal Sea Abundance

With an abundant supply of food, marine life is growing rapidly at this time. Along with the number of fish that can be seen in shallow waters, the population of sharks, octopi, rays and crustaceans swells to a greater proportion. For sea turtles, this is the time of breeding in the prime and December marking the start of their nesting season. Live in the Dry Season in the Galapagos

High Height

The height of various volcanic islands means, even in the dry months, there is significant rainfall in some areas. On the plateau, the drizzle and mist of moist known as Garúa is a constant presence and, while under the conditions at the bottom is quite arid, fertile and tropical highlands. Therefore, large numbers of animals – like the Giant Turtles – migrate to higher ground for food. While this seasonal movement occurs on a smaller scale than Africa’s “big migration”, it is the same principle. To find very active wildlife, most trips to wildlife voyages in the Galapagos at this time of the year will include trips to several island plateaues.

Breeding time

Surprisingly, temperatures are lower during the dry months, and during this cold weather many species choose to breed. It is very common among bird species and, when their young are hatched, large numbers of small fish in the surrounding waters serve as a reliable source of food. Boobies, Frigate and Flightless Cormorants begin their marriage early in the dry season, and their numbers increase as the gliders begin to appear in the following months.

Other species that have a higher profile during this breeding period are the unique Lava lizards, migrant sharks, flamingoes, sea lions, penguins, whales and dolphins.

Dry Moon End

At the end of December, as the Humboldt Current slows and rises in temperature, there is a shift in wildlife activity that is clear as the second season of the archipelago – a wet approach. For those planning a wildlife voyage in the Galapagos, no time in a year is a bad time, but the dry season can be a fun and enjoyable time to visit.

Facts about Matter: Life Cycle and Hazard

Facts about Matter: Life Cycle and Hazard

If you have water damage in your home due to flooding, plumbing damage, leaking roofs, or other catastrophes, then you have one of the most important concerns: the growth of fungus. Professional contractors can help you restore your life after water damage in Marietta, and their main job will prevent or eliminate all the print marks. Why prints appear in the house, why dangerous, and what can be done? Facts about Matter: Life Cycle and Hazard

 

Here are some important facts that should be known to homeowners and business owners about the mold:

Prints are an important part of the planet’s natural order. It helps break down dead organic matter – from plant remains to animal carcasses.
When prints help to decipher the remains of living things, elements of the life form will return to the natural environment, fertilize the soil and help shape future lives to grow. All living things today are part of this process of life cycling in and out of the planet. Facts about Matter: Life Cycle and Hazard
In the room, mold is very dangerous. This can interfere with allergies, cause asthma, contribute to respiratory diseases, and can even be deadly.
This is because the fungus is not included in a controlled indoor environment. Without the soil, living plants, open air flow, or other natural order to create balance, the fungus could take over the building.
Prints reproduce through tiny spores, or structures such as seeds that are not visible to the human eye. Spores float through the air looking for matter to rot or evaporate for consumption.
There are many, many kinds of prints in nature. No mushrooms that scientists have yet to survive without moisture.
When the mold spores find moisture, they will settle there and grow very quickly. Some types of mushrooms can develop in a matter of hours.
Equipment such as sinks and sinks are designed in such a way that water will flow out of it rather than settle. This allows humans to use this equipment without constant printing threats.
If the moisture has reached the carpet, walls, cabinets, or other building materials inside the building, the water will settle there. Then, the mold will begin to grow and break down building materials, especially wood and other natural fibers.
If water damage in Marietta occurs for any reason, you should contact a professional contractor to control moisture spread, then dry all exposed areas as soon as possible. Only the pro can prevent and eliminate the fungus so it does not harm your structure or your health.
