Nominated for Award as Best Safari House 2010

We are delighted that Onsea House has been nominated for a Good Safari Guide Award (2010), in the category Best Safari House. It is the 2nd consecutive year that Onsea House has been nominated and although there isn’t a specific category that Onsea House fits comfortably, the organization has decided to carry forward with the Best Safari House nomination this year so chances are realistic to get the award! 

The Good Safari Guide and Good Safari Guide Awards are widely recognised as the travel-trade benchmarking process for safari lodges.  The Good Safari Guide Awards is a platform for experienced tour operators and travel journalists to recognise excellent lodges. Non-trade visitors can vote in the ‘Travellers’ Choice’ Award.

Nominations will continue to be accepted until 31st March 2010. Shortlists in each award category are then produced purely from numbers of votes. A judges’ panel of highly respected independent operators score the shortlists in April and these scores produce the winners.   The 2010 Award Ceremony will be held at The Durban Hilton Ballroom on Friday 7th May, the night before Indaba starts.

A succedere così ad Antonio Calenda

A succedere così ad Antonio Calenda, il longevo direttore del Rossetti cui nell’autunno del 2010 Dipiazza affidò anche il destino del Verdi, è proprio l’uomo che il ministro Galan, nell’autunno dell’anno successivo, il 2011, agli ultimi respiri del Governo Berlusconi, spedì qui a Trieste al capezzale finanziario della Fondazione lirica. Orazi, come detto, ha incassato un via libera unanime: oltre ai delegati del Comune Anna Illy jr. E Paolo Marchesi il commercialista che è revisore dei conti del Verdi dal 2000 e che in quest’ultima annata è stato vice dello stesso Orazi nella gestione commissariale hanno detto sì alla soluzione Cosolini anche i due membri di nomina regionale, Luciano Sampietro e Francesco Cainero, così come gli altrettanti componenti espressi dal ministro Ornaghi, cioè Domenico Romeo e Franco Miracco.

Ndiaye ha cercato di cavarsela dichiarando di non essere in possesso di un titolo valido per la permanenza sul territorio italiano poichè era arrivato da poco tempo nel nostro paese con lo status di profugo. Dichiarazioni però più che sospette, visto che in effetti parlava e comprendeva chiaramente la lingua italiana.

Fans in the Valley eager to see World Cup games

However, Funes added that anyone who wants to play is welcome to join them.

Jesus Torres, 30, a Marietta resident from Mexico, said the Sunday games are evidence there are soccer fans in the Valley, many of whom will no doubt be glued to their television sets for the World Cup, the month long, international soccer tournament held every four years. wholesale nfl jerseys But the interest here pales in comparison to other countries. Wynn, who played soccer at Marietta High School and Walsh University in North Canton and is a frequent participant in the Sunday games, said American children often have their attention divided.

“Here in America, all of us kids try to play three or four sports,” he said.

Wynn had teammates from England, Canada and Argentina at Walsh and played in youth tournaments against international teams. Many international players had better foot speed than their American counterparts because of their concentration on soccer and soccer only.

“They’re playing soccer year round. They don’t even know of other sports,” Wynn said.

Wynn said if he isn’t watching World Cup games live, he’ll be recording them on DVR. Torres plans to do the same.

The World Cup is even drawing the interest of Williamstown resident Jim Morgan, 37. He enjoys playing soccer on Sundays but usually doesn’t watch it or any sports on TV.

“I’d rather be playing something than watching it,” he said.

Still, Morgan said he’s probably going to watch a few World Cup games over the next month.

“It’s almost like an Olympic event, it’s worldwide. teams that normally wouldn’t play (each other),” he said. “You’re going to see players that you’ve never seen before and see styles that you’re not used to.”

“Their chances aren’t good to win it, but I’m looking for us to just slowly learn and progress with each World Cup,” he said.

Funes said he’s rooting for Brazil and Spain, the two top ranked teams in the world. Brazil is a perennial favorite and Spain is the reigning European champion.
