Canada Post strikes hit Toronto and 11 other cities in southern Ontario

first_imgOTTAWA – The Canada Post rotating strikes have hit the country’s largest processing centre in Toronto for a second time in three weeks as workers in 11 other southern Ontario communities walked off the job just after midnight.The Canadian Union of Postal Workers says 4,500 Canada Post employees joined picket lines in Toronto at 7 p.m. Tuesday.CUPW says that was before workers in Chatham, Clinton, Georgetown, Milton, Orangeville, Port Hope, Stratford, Strathroy, Tillsonburg, Wingham and Woodstock walked off the job early Wednesday.Canada Post says in a statement that the union continues to escalate their strike activity, adding more communities each day and shutting down major processing centres for extended periods.Toronto facilities were shut down by the union for two consecutive days in October.Canada Post says there is no indication when that strike will end, adding it will worsen backlogs in mail or parcel deliveries across the country.“Prior to the union’s decision to target Toronto again, the number of trailers full of parcels and packets waiting to be unloaded and processed at a Canada Post facilities sat at over 150,” Canada Post spokesman Jon Hamilton said in a statement late Tuesday.“The escalating strikes have now shut down our three largest processing facilities in Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal up to 48 hours. Combined, those three plants can process a million parcels and packets a day for communities across the country.”The union and the postal service have been unable to reach new collective agreements for two bargaining units after 10 months of negotiations.“After … the intervention of two mediators and two weeks of rotating strikes, Canada Post’s true colours are emerging,” Mike Palecek, CUPW national president, said in a statement Wednesday.“The lofty rhetoric of wanting to work with us to reach fair agreements for our workers is turning out to be nothing more than smoke and mirrors.”CUPW has also called on a national overtime ban for both of its major bargaining units, meaning workers will not work more than an eight-hour day and no more than a 40-hour week.last_img read more

 

Riverdales USA Casting Director David Rapaport Talks Discovering New Talent for TV

first_imgPhoto Source: Raquel Aparicio Advertisement Advertisement David Rapaport’s first solo casting gig was assembling the now iconic ensemble for “Gossip Girl” on the CW. The casting director, who loves being part of the “pop culture connection,” has since landed himself (along with casting partner Lyndsey Baldasare) a spot as co-collaborator with superproducer Greg Berlanti, the man behind much of the CW’s slate of shows, including “Arrow,” “Supergirl,” and “Riverdale.”What’s your process when casting a pilot?We go through a really long casting process, about 10 weeks. But it’s quick in the sense that it’s a fast and furious process. We’re seeing so many people over those 10 weeks for leads and regulars, guest star roles, and recurring roles. We could be casting about 15 roles in that time. It sounds like a long period of time, but when you think about the potential for how big the show could be and how iconic these roles are, it’s not an endless period of time. You have to go through the auditions, studio tests, network tests, screen tests, lots of conversations and back and forth and questioning who’s right and who’s wrong.How do you cast an ensemble?It kind of falls into place based on the way the casting works. In an ideal world, we’d cast all the roles at the same time, but most of the time it doesn’t work out that way. I really have to take a leap of faith. Sometimes we’ll do chemistry readings for love interests to make sure there’s a palpable onscreen chemistry, but a lot of times, you don’t even get to do that and actors read with a reader, usually an associate from my office. I’m piecing together the chemistry in my brain; I never quite know what’s going to happen until I get on set or see the first edit of a pilot. We read people so many times to make sure that there are no questions left unanswered so you know what to expect or what you’re going to get.

Alumna sees program she helped start benefit her students

As Jennifer Currie watches her students enjoy their activity-filled day at Brock University, she’s proud of how much the PALS program has grown since she helped create it 21 years ago.“It’s something to feel good about,” the Brock alumna and Prince of Wales principal said recently, as she shared laughs and memories with old friends.She visited with a class taking part in the Positive Active Living for Students (PALS) program, which aims to expose students to a variety of sports and activities that are inclusive for all students.I started the program in 1995 to expose local students to Brock and the facilities.Currie’s history with PALS dates back more than two decades, when she was an undergrad student in the Physical Education program.Through the next several years, she would earn her Masters in Education from Brock, while serving as the team captain and eventual head coach of the women’s volleyball team. Once she landed a full-time position at Brock, Currie knew there was more she could do to build on the University’s connection to the community.“I started the program in 1995 to expose local students to Brock and the facilities,” she said.“I wanted to give students a positive experience on campus and provide them with the opportunity to participate in activities that they wouldn’t otherwise have at their schools.”Seven-year-old Ruth Rix came to Brock for the day with her Grade 2 class, and enjoyed “learning about different games” she hadn’t heard about before.“I really liked archery because we get to shoot the arrows,” she said. “I’m excited to try rowing later because we get to go in the kayak.”This year, 196 classes and 4,442 students from 67 different schools from the Niagara Region and Greater Toronto Area attended between May to June, and the program continues to sell out each year.“The high quality instructors and the varsity athletes who understand the importance of physical education help make this program thrive,” Currie said. read more

GLOW is Better Fake Wrestling Than Real Fake Wrestling

first_imgStay on target Netflix’s new half-hour dramedy GLOW debuted last Friday, and it appears the entire internet has fallen in love with it. It’s easy to see why. It’s funny, touching, and the cast is filled with incredible talent. The characters are all fully-realized people with their own desires, goals, secrets, obstacles, and stories. There really isn’t a flat, one-dimensional character on screen. It pits characters against one another without making any of them purely evil. Sometimes you feel bad for Ruth Wilder (Alison Brie) and other times you’re behind Debbie Eagan (Betty Gilpin). In all instances, you can see exactly where their characters are coming from, even when you disagree with their actions. That makes for great drama, and during my entire binge of the show, I couldn’t help wondering: Why can’t actual pro wrestling be this way.Sure, GLOW is all about the lives of the women outside of the ring as they learn to become wrestlers. There’s not a ton of actual wrestling in it. But because we’ve gotten to know all these women so well, the few wrestling sequences that are there are as exciting and dramatic as a real (fake) match. After all the differences they’ve had with each other, it’s fun to watch two characters work together to pull off an amazing stunt. And when you know there’s still beef between two of them; you do wonder how much they’re actually trying to hurt each other. GLOW is a scripted drama with recognizable actresses that has somehow managed to put out better wrestling product than the WWE manages most weeks.Alison Brie, Britney Young (Image: Erica Parise/Netflix)I have to admit; I’m not the biggest wrestling fan in the world. I’ve tried. Every time a friend or someone I respect as a storyteller talks about how much they love wrestling (which happens more often than you’d guess), I give it another shot. I can see why they like it. No other TV show allows for such longform storytelling. Even decades-old soap operas wish they had the long-running, intricate internal continuity that the WWE does. These characters age and change over the years, switching loyalties, betraying each other, teaming up with each other, all played with maximum emotion and drama. It sounds amazing on paper. Then you watch it.Maybe I’ve just always come in at a bad time. I keep hearing fans talk about gigantic, ridiculous stories where cars explode, and wrestlers come back from the dead. Then I tune in and see something that’s really trying to be taken seriously as a sport. Character motivations don’t go beyond “I want to win, ” and the wrestling itself is often stilted, predictable and goes on way too long. Maybe there was a time when bigger, crazier stories were told, but it’s not in any of the wrestling I’ve seen. That’s where GLOW succeeds. Because it’s a TV show like any other, it’s not trying to be a sport or even a sports drama. But because the writing is so good, we’re able to connect with the characters, which in turn makes the wrestling scenes better. Pro wrestling doesn’t need to abandon its pretense of being a real sport. That’s part of what makes it so fun. But it could still take some valuable lessons from GLOW. If it embraced its scripted nature, strengthened its character work and gave them some real conflict to work with, the actual wrestling product would probably improve.Gayle Rankin, Sydelle Noel (Image: Erica Parise/Netflix)Of course, like any wrestling show, GLOW isn’t without issues. Not all the episodes are great, and there’s a bit of a lull after the first. The first episode bombards you with classic ’80s music and fashion before delivering an intriguing story about friends, desperation, nd wrestling. It instantly sucks you in and before the first half-hour is done, you’ve already decided to binge the whole thing here and now. Then the next few episodes can’t quite live up to the first. It’s a lot of set-up, and falls into a brief holding pattern where the central conflict doesn’t evolve, and neither do Ruth’s tactics for dealing with it.It’s here that GLOW could have taken a lesson from wrestling. At its core, the show is about a broken friendship between two women. Ruth betrays Debbie, and they both end up working for this new women’s wrestling promotion. It’s not clear at this point who you’re supposed to be rooting for.  Since the show follows Ruth around, we assume it’s her, but then she becomes the most annoying main character. She realizes she’s done something wrong, but doesn’t try to do anything about it. She interjects herself into every scene with the kind of condescending enthusiasm that even actors hate in other actors. All this would be OK, and would probably make her a fun anti-hero, if she weren’t so bland. I realize that’s the entire point of these episodes, but when she’s surrounded by so many more interesting women, who allude to stories we haven’t seen a million times before, it makes me wonder why the show isn’t about them.Britney Young, Kimmy Gatewood, Rebekka Johnson, Ellen Wong, Britt Baron, Sydelle Noel, Alison Brie, Sunita Mani, Marianna Palka, Gayle Rankin, Kia Stevens, Jackie Tohn (Image: Erica Parise/Netflix)Yes, the central plot of this show involves having Ruth find her wrestling persona and become less bland, but the show doesn’t give much of an indication of that early on. Watching someone with no personality try to find one isn’t all that interesting, especially when Ruth doesn’t exactly have a rich inner life. GLOW does eventually take a cue from actual wrestling and begins to build her into a heel. That’s when the show picks back up. When you realize you’re not necessarily supposed to be rooting for this person, that she’s the bad guy in this wrestling match, she becomes more fun to follow. In the end, she even wins you back on her side. For the most part, it’s a wonderfully-written character arc. It just doesn’t get out of the gate as quickly as you’d like it to.Of course, a good wrestling show needs more than well-paired face and heel. The rest of the roster in GLOW shines as well. Every character has a unique perspective and reason for being there. Their scenes alone make me wish GLOW didn’t have to end after a measly five hours. That’s particularly true of Cherry Bang (Sydelle Noel), a stuntwoman and former exploitation actress who hasn’t been able to get a role since 1979. She holds the group together, making sure these first-time wrestlers are all on top of their game. She also keeps both Ruth and director Sam Silvia (Marc Maron) in check, preventing either character from getting too annoying or tasteless. Silvia says some pretty disgusting things over the course of this show, but Cherry is there to keep him in check. And when Ruth starts to complain about never getting any good roles, or acts like she’s better than wrestling, Cherry shuts her down and gets her back to work.Marc Maron is also fantastic as the drug-addicted, perverse creative director Sam Silvia. He’s just the perfect sad sack with just enough genuine belief in what he’s doing that you can’t help but feel sorry for him. And yeah, he’s a little racist and extremely sexist. But the character is clearly trying to do right by the women he’s hired, and Maron’s portrayal gets you behind him despite all that.Kia Stevens, Ellen Wong, Marc Maron, Kate Nash, Sydelle Noel (Image: Erica Parise/Netflix)I do wish it spent a little more time addressing the embedded racism that (in some cases) continues to plague wrestling. GLOW does spend some time on it. The show is very aware that many wrestling personas are based on stereotypes, and that often leads to some pretty racist caricatures showing up in the ring. For most of the series, they sidestep it. Tammé Dawson (Kia Stevens) raises concerns about portraying a character called “welfare queen,” but Sam plays it off as a satirical critique of Reagan republicans’ idea of a person on welfare. Is anyone buying that? Later, she asks Cherry’s husband if Silvia is racist and the husband says he’s more sexist than racist. The issue is dropped there and not spoken of again.The farthest GLOW goes in confronting racism in wrestling is when Arthie Premkumar (Sunita Mani) takes the ring as a terrorist character. Two men in the audience start hurling racial slurs at her and throw their beer cans. After the match is over, she’s shocked and saddened. “They really hated me.” It’s the only moment where the show makes any sort of case that these stereotypes aren’t just harmless fun. They can have some pretty terrible consequences, intended or not. But then we don’t see her again, and the show’s big finale is all about Ruth and Debbie. The next time we see Arthie, she’s excitedly preparing to watch the finished TV product. Wrestling doesn’t have the best history when it comes to its treatment of performers of color. It would have been nice if GLOW explored that a little more.Betty Gilpin (Image: Erica Parise/Netflix)In the end, GLOW gave me something that pro wrestling never seems to deliver: A satisfying ending. The show’s final moments ended the series on a hopeful note and summed up everything that can be great about wrestling. When Welfare Queen did a heel turn and stole the crown from Liberty Belle, Sam told Debbie that the show can’t end with America on top. The fun is watching the good guy chase the crown. “The money’s in the chase” is a simple line, but it crystallizes why wrestling has perpetuated for decades the way it has. And then, it followed its own advice. We watched Debbie grow as a person and assert her independence over her (hopefully soon-to-be-ex) husband. We watched her embrace her new role as a wrestler and work together with the woman who betrayed her to put on an amazing show. Then, Ruth invites Debbie out for a drink, and is shot down. They’re not friends, and they’re not making up anytime soon. At once, it’s a satisfying ending and an intriguing direction for season two to go. If they get one. I hope they do. Finally, there’s a good wrestling show on TV. All they had to do was take out most of the wrestling.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Amazon Warehouse Workers Hospitalized in Bear Repellent Incident

first_img Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls Things you never expect to say after a day at work in an Amazon warehouse: “Sorry I’m late. I was accidentally poisoned by bear repellent.”Dozens of workers complained of breathing problems Wednesday morning, after a 9 oz. can of bear repellant was punctured inside the 1.3 million-square-foot facility in Robbinsville Township, N.J.Someone called 911 around 8:50 a.m. ET, reporting the diffusion on the third floor of the warehouse’s south wing.The aerosol can, containing what is essentially bear pepper spray, was hit by an “automated machine,” Robbinsville spokesman John Nalbone told The Washington Post (which is owned by Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos). No further details have been released.“Today at our Robbinsville fulfillment center, a damaged aerosol can dispensed strong fumes in a contained area of the facility,” Amazon spokeswoman Rachael Lighty said in a statement to Geek.“The safety of our employees is our top priority, and as such, all employees in that area have been relocated to a safe place and employees experiencing symptoms are being treated on-site,” she continued. “As a precaution, some employees have been transported to local hospitals for evaluation and treatment.”Twenty-four workers were moved to nearby hospitals; one person was listed in critical condition.Bear pepper spray—like the lachrymatory agent many humans carry for self-defense—is a non-toxic, non-lethal deterrent that causes the animal’s mucous membranes to swell. The result: A confused bear with near total, yet only temporary, loss of sight and severely restricted breathing.The perfect moment to RUN.According to an explainer released by Yellowstone National Park, symptoms usually subside within 45 minutes. Folks who’ve been exposed, however, should be closely monitored.Amazon did not immediately respond to Geek’s request for comment.Editor’s note: This article was updated at 12:15 p.m. ET with comment from Amazon.More on Geek.com:Turns Out Yetis Are Really Just BearsAmazon Wants to Bring Its Cashierless Tech to Bigger StoresAmazon Accidentally Aired ‘Doctor Who’ Episode Early Stay on targetlast_img read more

Abductors beat up Farhad Mazhar

first_imgUntitled-4Immediately after picking him up in a white microbus, the abductors beat up Farhad Mazhar, according to the detective branch (DB) of police.In the wee hours of Monday, poet, essayist and political analyst Mazhar was picked up from his Shyamoli residence while he reportedly went out to buy some medicine.”You are over-doing things,” they shouted at Mazhar who, however, managed to call her wife Farida Akhtar over his cell phone.After snatching the cell phone, the abductors blindfolded him, and kept him like that throughout the journey from Dhaka till he was freed in Khulna in the evening.Farhad Mazhar said this during the interrogation by DB officials who interrogated him for about two hours on Minto Road DB office on Tuesday.After being rescued from Abhoynagar of Jessore, Farhad Mazhar was taken first to the Adabar police station in Dhaka.From there, he was taken to DB office on Minto Road for interrogation.Joint commissioner of Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) Krishna Pada Roy, joint commissioner of DB police Abdul Baten and Tejgaon zone police deputy commissioner Biplob Kumar Sarker were present during the interrogation.”We are verifying Farhad Mazhar’s statements,” joint commissioner Abdul Baten told Prothom Alo on Wednesday.They wanted to know whether Farhad Mazhar went out on his own accord or someone called him over cell phone? Why did he go out so early in the morning?During the interrogation, Farhad said he was going towards the pharmacy adjacent to Dhaka Central Medical College Hospital in Shyamoli to buy medicine for his eyes and to walk. When he reached to a lane near Golden Street, a white microbus stopped near him and three men got down and picked him up in the microbus.How did Mazhar manage to make a cell phone call to his wife?In his statement to police, Farhad Mazhar said,” Two men sat on both side of me. After closing the door, they slapped and scolded me. They said you are over-doing things.””When the microbus turned left from the Shyamoli intersection, at one stage I made a phone call to my wife and whispered they would kill me. Then they snatched the cell phone and blindfolded me”.About ransom, Mazhar said first they claimed Tk1 or 2 crore, later they demanded Tk35 lakh within a day. They held the phone in his ear and asked him to inform his wife. Then the abductors snatched the phone.”I attempted to use phone frequently so that I can be tracked easily. I could not realise in which direction the vehicle was going as I was blindfolded”.During the interrogation, Farhad Mazhar said, “The microbus did not stop till it reached Khulna. They got me down at around 7:00pm in Khulna. While freeing me in Khulna, they said they were staying to a somewhere close by.

Bikers death Appcab driver arrested for murder

first_imgKolkata: Police have arrested an app-cab driver in connection with the death of a biker at Remount Road in Kolkata Port area on July 21. The case that had initially seemed a fatal one has turned out to be murder during the course of investigation by the Fatal Section of the Kolkata Police’s Traffic department.According to police sources, at around 11.05 pm on July 21, one Sanjay Halder (31) was riding his motorcycle and was knocked down from behind by an app-based cab on Remount Road. The biker, a resident of Karl Marx Sarani in Kidderpore, fell on the ground and sustained grievous injuries on his head. He was rushed to a private hospital in Alipore where he was declared brought dead. “We registered a case under Section 304 a (causing death by negligence) of IPC at South Port police station and the fatal section of the Traffic department started a probe. During the investigation, it transpired that just before the incident, the victim visited a street-side eatery beside a petrol pump located nearby.

We have already arrested Ram and he had confessed to the crime,” a senior official of Kolkata Police said. The police have already amended the section of the case to murder under Section 302 of IPC. The arrested was produced at Alipore court on Saturday and was remanded to police custody till August 8.last_img read more

Why the worlds most active happy travellers choose Queensland

first_imgWhy the world’s most active, happy travellers choose QueenslandWhy the world’s most active, happy travellers choose QueenslandAmid the universal clamour of New Year’s resolutions targeting personal betterment, Queensland steps on to the global podium as just the place to be and feel your best… and perhaps also achieve a Personal Best (PB) in the process. Year-round!That’s the low-down from new research commissioned by Tourism and Events Queensland – announced today (Sunday 14 January 2018) by Queensland Government Acting Minister for Innovation and Tourism Industry Development Shannon Fentiman – revealing just what drives the world’s most active travellers to ‘bucket list’ fit-cations across the state. Click here to view Ministerial Statement.The research undertaken by Strategic Facts polled 3,695 domestic and international participants in the state’s endurance events – covering everything from triathlon to multi-sport challenges; running, mountain biking and cycling events; and idyllic year-round ocean swims.Of note, the research showed Queensland cornered a global niche in wellness/fit-cation tourism by virtue of the state’s natural assets. Notably, the unrivalled win-win of competing in bucket list destinations from the Gold Coast to Sunshine Coast and Tropical North Queensland’s World Heritage-listed Great Barrier Reef and Daintree Rainforest.Other key pluses included friendly locals; world-class, safe and accessible events; and the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends.Findings include:99 per cent gave Queensland the thumbs-up as Australia’s endurance event capital, with overall experience and atmosphere meeting all expectations; rated as ‘impressive’ or ‘standout – best ever’ on a global scale.Kudos indeed from the world’s most active travellers: 94 per cent travel up to four times a year outside their home state/country, specifically to participate in endurance events.87 per cent travel in tribes to endurance events, joined by family and friends, who are not just passive companions; 58 per cent also compete.68 per cent of all respondents rated Queensland as ‘impressive’ or ‘standout – best ever’ when it came to enjoying time with family and friends, rising to 73 per cent of those from interstate and overseas.Over two thirds (69 per cent) of interstate and overseas respondents took a post-event holiday in Queensland, with 77 per cent rating their holiday as ‘family-friendly’.97 per cent underlined the win-win of competing in bucket list destinations including the Great Barrier Reef in Tropical North Queensland and world-renowned beaches on the Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast.99 per cent gave a big thumbs-up to Queensland’s climate/environment/nature while competing, with 70 per cent rating its impact on their experience as ‘impressive’ or ‘standout – best ever’ and 68 per cent going a step further to state these factors gave Queensland the edge over other global endurance event destinations.More than half (59 per cent) of overseas respondents said Queensland’s climate, sunshine, fresh air and warm water were ‘absolutely’ the driving reasons they travelled to endurance events in the state.Fit-cations, including weekend getaways to endurance events, are a part of their way of life: 96 per cent of all respondents compete for the love of it, as ‘age groupers’ not professional athletes. But they train like pros: 54 per cent train more than six times a week.Winning, however, is not their objective! It’s about personal growth and wellbeing: 81 per cent said personal goals, health and sporting achievement were ‘hugely important’ vs 29 per cent feeling the same way about competition/performance.In other significant findings (notably in answers to open-ended questions), respondents continuously stated the people in Queensland (friendly, welcoming and inclusive) gave the state the edge over other event locations, alongside safety and world-class standard of competition across ‘diverse and adventurous’ terrain.Born and raised on the Gold Coast, triathlon legend, Emma Frodeno (nee Snowsill) – the most decorated woman in international triathlon history – said the new research echoed her own life story.As a teenager, at high school, she became hooked on endurance events after joining a team in the Noosa Triathlon ‘for fun’. The rest is history. Before retiring in 2014, the three-time world champion won gold at the 2006 Melbourne Commonwealth Games and 2008 Beijing Olympics, also taking out the International Triathlon Union (ITU) World Cup 12 times.“I remember way back to my first experience at the Noosa Triathlon and, at the time thinking, this is very exciting,” she said. “It beat spending weeks in the pool and there was incredible atmosphere. A real community buzz and sense of belonging.“Slowly I managed to do the swim and the run the following year in the Noosa Tri and found my way in the last year of school into the schools’ triathlon at the event.”Also welcoming the findings, IRONMAN Oceania Managing Director David Beeche said there was no question Queensland ranked highly as a global leader in hosting world-class endurance events in some of the most idyllic and diverse destinations on the planet. A key reason, he said, behind the global heavyweight staging the IRONMAN Asia Pacific Championship in Tropical North Queensland as part of the Cairns Airport Adventure Festival.“Queensland is up there with the best destinations in the world on the global IRONMAN stage,” Mr Beeche said.“Every year we see numbers grow at annual events across the state, including the world’s biggest triathlon during the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival; the IRONMAN 70.3 Sunshine Coast in Mooloolaba, which hosted the 2016 World Championships; and ever-popular Gold Coast Triathlon – Luke Harrop Memorial held on the same course that Commonwealth Games triathletes will compete on in April.”Mr Beeche said Queensland’s idyllic and easily accessible destinations prompted IRONMAN to develop exciting new endurance events (launching in 2018) – importantly, answering participants’ hunger for family-friendly fit-cations in adventurous, bucket list destinations.They include a four-day mountain bike stage race in Tropical North Queensland called the Reef to Reef, and, on the Sunshine Coast, the Runaway Noosa Marathon – one of the group’s four new marathon series events.“Noosa really was a no-brainer,” Mr Beeche said. “It’s a destination that simply doesn’t put a foot wrong in promising so much more than just another running event – natural beauty, world-class running trails, local hospitality and drool-factor food and wine.”Professional triathlete, Olympian and four-time winner of the Noosa Triathlon, Ashleigh Gentle – currently ranked No. 2 on the ITU World Triathlon Series and selected to represent Australia at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games – understands the benefits of training and competing in Queensland.The Brisbane girl, now based on the Gold Coast, said: “We are pretty blessed to have amazing conditions all year round . . . Queensland is just an awesome place to be.”Queensland’s reputation as Australia’s wellness/fit-cation capital doesn’t stop at the state’s ever-increasing line-up of endurance events.In 2018, new sweat-worthy tourism offerings traverse everything from a ‘Nature Tri’ (organised by Ride On Mary… Kayak & Bike Bush Adventures, inspired by the Noosa Triathlon – download video) covering a kayak with platypuses, mountain bike and country hike to a luxe sailing adventure complete with stand-up paddle (SUP) races between idyllic islands of the Whitsundays (organised by Whitsunday Escape), fully-catered cycling adventure from the Daintree to Cairns via Atherton Tablelands and the start-up of electric mountain bike tours of Cape Tribulation.The notion of wellness, meanwhile, has emerged as a much-needed antidote to the stresses of modern life. Even global fashion bible Vogue (US) emblazoned the word ‘Wellness’ across its January 2018 edition, taking it mainstream.According to the Global Wellness Institute (GWI), wellness tourism will grow from the current $563 billion to $808 billion by 2020 – with Australia ranked No. 1 in the top five growth leaders for percentage increase in wellness tourism trips. The nation recorded an 85 per cent increase in wellness trips, rocketing from 4.6 million to 8.5 million trips between 2013 and 2015.Importantly, Queensland has taken an active seat at GWI’s annual Global Wellness Summit, with Gold Coast-based Gwinganna Lifestyle Retreat founder Tony de Leede last year appointed to its Advisory Board.Opened in 2006 on 200 hectares of Tallebudgera Valley, the retreat (co-owned by Hugh Jackman) has long been considered ahead of its time in wellness tourism, awarded Australia’s Best Wellness Retreat 2017 and Oceania’s Best Wellness Retreat 2017 for the third consecutive year at the World Spa Awards among many accolades.And while WELL-thy is the new wealthy, wellness/fit-cation holidays in Queensland can suit any budget and fitness level from stand-up paddle (SUP) yoga retreats (check out the video) to beginner mountain bike adventures, (check out Tropical North Queensland’s rad trails in this video), guided hikes, beach meditation and snorkelling safaris.At a glance, Tourism Research Australia’s National Visitor Survey (year ending June 2017), revealed the most popular adventures undertaken by all domestic visitors to Queensland covered:Bushwalking/rainforest walks: 2,401,000 (three-year growth trend of 7.5 percent)Exercise, gym or swimming: 1,742,000 (three-year growth trend of 21 percent)Fishing: 1,130,000 (three-year growth trend of -5.3 percent)Water activities / sports: 944,000 (three-year growth trend of 6.8 percent)Surfing: 402,000 (three-year growth trend of 1.7 percent)Snorkelling: 355,000 (three-year growth trend of 0.7 percent)Golf: 347,000 (three-year growth trend of 4.8 percent)Cycling: 288,000 (three-year growth trend of 4.6 percent)Queensland’s unrivalled reefs, islands and beaches inspired three times more snorkelling adventures than in New South Wales (97,000) and a whopping 15 times more snorkelling trips than Victoria (23,000).Best things in life are free? Swimming has emerged as a holiday activity growth trend across Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria, up 18 to 22 per cent over three years.
