Santa Ynez Valley Safely Welcoming Visitors Once Again

first_imgFacebook AdvertisementAfter a long road, the Santa Ynez Valley’s wineries, restaurants, and lodging properties are cautiously and safely opening doors to visitors(SANTA YNEZ VALLEY, Calif.) — As Americans prepare to resume their love of travel, the Santa Ynez Valley is equally prepared to welcome them back to wine country with the opportunity to once again experience the gem of California’s Central Coast. The Valley’s hotels, inns, restaurants, wineries, and outdoor activities are back to doing what they do best—providing a much-needed getaway or a distinct change of scenery that is welcoming, safe and spacious—just two hours from Los Angeles and a scenic four-hour drive from the Bay Area.The region’s relatively slow pace of life and charming communities, abundant open spaces and uncrowded rural roads, and the stunning setting painted with lush vineyards and California Oaks as far as the eye can see, are made only more attractive by the times in which we currently find ourselves.“The journey has been long, but the challenges we all faced through isolation have given us the opportunity to recognize and reprioritize what is most important to us including quality time with family and close friends, a slower pace of life, and of course, traveling,” said Shelby Sim, CEO of Visit the Santa Ynez Valley. “The life and culture of the Santa Ynez Valley have always been something we cherish, but never have we been so excited to get back to it and share it with others at a time when so many people are so eager to return to doing the things they love most.”The Santa Ynez Valley’s location along the Central Coast of California is ideal for those yearning for a quick yet dramatic change of pace and scenery that is close enough to be within easy reach and just far enough away from the city to offer a deeper experience.The Santa Ynez Valley’s inns and hotels — including The Landsby, The Santa Ynez Inn, and Skyview Los Alamos, as well as the family-friendly Alisal Guest Ranch & Resort, Flying Flags, Hamlet Inn, Santa Ynez Valley Marriott, Sideways Inn, and The Alamo Motel — are again unforgettable stays for a wide range of budgets.The Santa Ynez Valley’s many incredible restaurants — including Bell’s Los Alamos, Bob’s Well Bread, The Gathering Table, Los Olivos Wine Merchant & Cafe, Pico, Plenty on Bell, S.Y. Kitchen, Full of Life Flatbread, Leonardo’s, Brothers at the Red Barn, Hitching Post II, and Trattoria Grappolo — are no longer limited to take-out service only and are back to serving up their imaginative culinary creations to diners on the premises.And whether tasting along the scenic Foxen Canyon Wine Trail, in quaint downtown Los Olivos, the Santa Ynez Valley Wine Trail, Sta. Rita Hills Wine Trail, Buellton Wine Trail, or the Solvang Wine Walk, the Santa Ynez Valley has a world of wine waiting to be rediscovered.Of course, never have we been more excited to enjoy open spaces. A horseback ride through the vineyards with Vino Vaqueros, a cycling tour along the region’s country roads, and hundreds of miles of hiking trails to explore may just be what we need to feel free again.“We are all yearning to get back to things we love,” Sim said. “As stewards of the Santa Ynez Valley, our restaurants, wineries, hotels and retailers remain vigilant. All open businesses are operating under RISE, Santa Barbara County’s guide for Reopening in a Safe Environment. By utilizing healthy travel practices, social distancing and the county-required use of masks, the Santa Ynez Valley provides visitors the perfect combination of amenities, activities, and experiences to enjoy a safe and welcome getaway.”For more information, or to research attractions, book lodging and activities, and create a custom travel itinerary, visit visitsyv.com.

5G hype to be reflected in reality — Cisco CEO

first_img Chuck Robbins, CEO of Cisco, took to the stage at MWC19 Barcelona to proclaim that after years of thinking and talking about 5G, the next-generation of mobile technology has finally arrived.And, he said 5G is one technology that feels like the hype is going to be reflected in the reality.“We are truly embarking on incredible times,” he said. “As we think about this next phase that we’re getting ready to enter into, it is going to be like no other phase we’ve ever seen.”Robbins cited some statistics to illustrate what lies ahead, based on the latest Cisco Visual Networking Index report. “We believe in the year 2022 … there will be more traffic created than there has been created since the inception of the internet,” he said.Among other forecasts, Robbins said there will be more than 400 million 5G connections in three years.  “We may be off, but if we’re off it’s probably going to be higher,” he added.  There will also be 4 billion machine-to-machine connections. “IoT is going to become very real as we move forward.”And these connections are going to generate far more traffic than today, said Robbins, who suggested it could be up to six times higher.“It’s going to be massive scale. And this has huge implications for all, making possible the creation of new applications and bringing new opportunities for a broad range of industries, from mining through to autonomous driving.”He also touted the technology’s potential to boost connectivity all over the world.Different approach However, Robbins warned that mobile operators will have to think differently about how they architect the underlying network technology in the future. “The technology you put in the network is going to be different from everything we have ever built,” he said.Robbins emphasised the need to work with partners to build out new capabilities for enterprise, for example.He pointed to the achievements of Cisco’s partner Rakuten, which is building the first new mobile network in Japan in 10 years.As explained by Mickey Mikitani, founder, chairman and CEO of Rakuten, the operator’s new network is very different from what has been built before.He described it as the first end-to-end, fully virtualised, cloud-native mobile network that uses little hardware, costs much less to build and maintain, and is 5G-ready from day one.Mikitani’s parting message, and perhaps challenge to other mobile operators, was: “Our philosophy of network is completely different. And we are presenting a totally new concept for mobile networks.” Subscribe to our daily newsletter Back Tags AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to LinkedInLinkedInLinkedInShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to MoreAddThisMore 27 FEB 2019 HomeMWC19 – News 5G hype to be reflected in reality — Cisco CEO Author Mobile World Live Cisco Previous ArticleOperators wrestle with 5G capital spendNext ArticlePartner Interview: Accenture Mobile World Live is the online service dedicated to providing the mobile industry with daily news coverage & analysis of the biggest global market developments.

BP’s Leaky Oil Well to Stay Corked During Storm

first_img Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. ON THE GULF OF MEXICO – The temporary cap on BP’s ruptured oil well will stay closed even if ships evacuate the Gulf of Mexico during a tropical storm, the federal government’s spill chief said Thursday.Growing confidence in the mechanical plug’s security convinced scientists it was safe to leave it unmonitored for a few days, Retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said. He said they’ll decide Thursday evening whether dozens of ships in the area will leave.“While this is not a hurricane, it’s a storm that will have probably some significant impacts, so we’re taking appropriate cautions,” Allen said.Forecasters at the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami say the storm system already has caused flooding in Puerto Rico, the Dominican Republic and Haiti. It could become Tropical Storm Bonnie later Thursday and reach the Gulf of Mexico by Saturday.If work crews are evacuated, it could be two weeks before they can resume the effort to kill the well. That would upset BP’s timetable, which called for finishing the relief tunnel by the end of July and plugging the blown-out well by early August.Seas already were choppy in the Gulf, with waves up to five feet rocking boats as crews prepared to leave if needed. Some boats involved in the cleanup were called into port Thursday, Coast Guard Rear Adm. Paul Zukunft said.He also directed workers to remove oil-absorbent booms from marsh areas along the coast to prevent damage to ecologically sensitive areas.Work on plugging the well is at a standstill just days before the expected completion of a relief tunnel to permanently throttle the free-flowing crude.Even if the storm does not hit the area directly, it could affect the effort to contain the oil and clean it up. Hurricane Alex stayed 500 miles away last month, yet skimming in Alabama, Mississippi and Florida was curtailed for nearly a week.Crews had planned to spend Wednesday and Thursday reinforcing with cement the last few feet of the relief tunnel that will be used to pump mud into the gusher and kill it once and for all. But BP put the task on hold and instead placed a temporary plug called a storm packer deep inside the tunnel, in case it has to be abandoned until the storm passes.“What we didn’t want to do is be in the middle of an operation and potentially put the relief well at some risk,” BP vice president Kent Wells said.The relief tunnel extends about two miles under the seabed. It’s now about four feet from the side of the well, although BP still has more than 100 feet to drill diagonally before the tunnel reaches the well. BP plans to insert a final string of casing, or drilling pipe, cement it into place, and give it up to a week to set, before attempting to punch through to the blown-out well and kill it.The two rigs drilling relief tunnels will disconnect from the well if they have to evacuate the site. All appeared quiet on the rigs Thursday afternoon.BP’s broken well spewed somewhere between 94 million and 184 million gallons into the Gulf before the cap was attached. The crisis — the biggest offshore oil spill in U.S. history — unfolded after the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon rig exploded April 20, killing 11 workers.The White House said Thursday President Barack Obama and his family will vacation on the Gulf Coast next month, visiting Florida for a weekend. Both the president and First Lady Michelle Obama have made a point of encouraging people to visit Gulf Coast beaches that are open and free of oil damage to help the local economy.

Students make Easter pilgrimage to Rome

first_imgROME, Italy – This Easter, over 100 Notre Dame students studying in various locations throughout Europe went on pilgrimage to Rome for a weekend of sightseeing, prayer and reflection organized by Campus Ministry. Fr. John Paul Lichon, the Campus Ministry leader of the trip, met the pilgrims in Saint Peter’s Square on Saturday afternoon to distribute tickets for the Easter Sunday Mass. Students from programs all over Europe – including Greece, Spain, England, Ireland, and Italy – reunited by the obelisk in the middle of the piazza, hugging, laughing and sharing stories from their travels. The pilgrimage is an annual event coordinated by Campus Ministry, which includes tours of Rome’s churches, admittance to the Easter Sunday Mass led by Pope Francis, and the opportunity to reflect in the presence of Rome’s most precious relics, Lichon said. Easter is the most important feast of the year for the Church, but the pilgrimage will take on special significance this year, Lichon said. . “We’ve been doing the pilgrimage for a long time, but it just turned out this year it was with the new pope, so that has been exciting,” Lichon said. “The main focus is truly to be on pilgrimage for Easter, to truly enter into Triduum.” Lichon said Campus Ministry offered two pilgrimage “tracks.” The full track includes three days of sightseeing and guided reflection, while the Easter Sunday track admits students only for the Mass in Saint Peter’s Square, Lichon said. “It’s been fantastic. There’re about 40 students doing the full track with us, and we did the whole Triduum service together. We did a bunch of churches together on Friday, we did Saint Peter’s [Saturday] morning and we’re going to do the Vatican Museum,” he said. “Then about 110 students are coming just for the Easter Sunday Mass.” Though the tours and photo opportunities excite the participants, Lichon said the goal of the pilgrimage was to engage in prayer. “Rome at this time is just crazy, and we wanted to create a space that was prayerful and reflective and truly enter into Triduum,” he said. “I think that’s what this week is really about.” Junior Caity Bobber, who is currently studying abroad in London, participated in all of the pilgrimage’s planned events. “We began [Friday] with morning prayer at the Coliseum, and we saw the Basilica of Saint John Lateran, where the skulls of Saints Peter and Paul are,” Bobber said. “It’s actually where the bishop of Rome is, so that’s the cathedral of Rome.” Each day of the pilgrimage is scheduled from 7:00 a.m. until late at night, while some days stretch past midnight, Bobber said. “Last night, the Stations of the Cross began at 9:15 p.m., but we met at 6:45 p.m. to wait for our spot,” Bobber said. “It was a jam-packed day.” Mary Coghlin, a junior studying abroad in London, said visiting the Holy Stairs held special religious significance for her. “I would say we were all surprised by that,” Coghlin said. “It’s 28 stairs taken from the office of Pontius Pilate, so when Jesus was walking to his condemnation, he was walking down those stairs.” Coghlin said Saint Helen, Constantine’s mother, moved the stairs and other elements of Christ’s crucifixion back to Rome. “It’s the original marble, and now they’re covered in another wood, and pilgrims go up each of these 28 steps on their knees while praying. It’s about a 25 minute ordeal,” she said. “It’s way more moving than you would expect. People did specific prayers, acts of contrition. Some people received indulgences.” The students also attended the Via Crucis, the Way of the Cross ceremony, held at the Coliseum on Friday night, Coghlin said. “It was candlelit and we were close to Papa Francesco and it was beautiful,” Coughlin said. “[In the ceremony] there was Italian and a lot of Latin, which was nice because you were able to say the Our Father in that. There were also a lot of Notre Dame people there, and it was a great day.” The group’s intense touring schedule didn’t leave the pilgrims much free time, but Lichon said the group purposefully walked a fine line between seeing Rome as tourists and visiting the churches as worshippers. “You visit the churches for a purpose, you don’t just walk in and take a picture,” he said. “You [try to] understand what this church brings to you in a special way. You ask, how is God trying to speak to you through this place?” Contact Meghan Thomassen at [email protected]last_img read more

In wake of Parkland shooting, Yoder offers prayers, challengers call for gun control

first_imgThe school shooting in Parkland, Fla., that left 17 people dead Wednesday has drawn into focus one of the sharpest differences between incumbent Republican Kevin Yoder and his Democratic challengers for the District 3 seat: gun control.In the hours after the shooting, Yoder posted a message on Twitter offering prayers for the victims and their families, and thanking first responders.Horrific news out of Florida. Praying for the victims, their loved ones, and the doctors and nurses currently saving lives as we speak. Thankful for the heroic first responders who prevented further loss of life today.— Rep. Kevin Yoder (@RepKevinYoder) February 15, 2018Democrats seeking the seat, on the other hand, were quick to call for consideration of gun control measures.Brent Welder, the Bonner Springs labor attorney, went the furthest, calling for a reinstatement of the assault weapons ban. Here’s his statement:I am horrified and sickened by Wednesday’s mass shooting of school children in Parkland, Florida. My heart goes out to the victims and their families. I am also extremely angry. Thoughts and prayers are not enough. It’s time for action. I demand that Congress reinstate the ban on assault weapons. Assault weapons were used in the mass shootings of Parkland, Las Vegas, Orlando, San Bernadino, Aurora, Newtown, and in numerous other deadly attacks since the Congress allowed the ban to expire. My opponent, Congressman Kevin Yoder has taken more money from the NRA than any U.S. House member in Kansas. This money has bought his silence on guns. Hunters don’t use assault weapons — mass murderers do. They must be illegal.Tom Niermann, the Prairie Village teacher, posted a series of Tweets expressing frustration with the lack of action on the part of Congress to address gun violence:And Sharice Davids, the Shawnee attorney and former White House fellow who entered the race this week, Tweeted that it was time for “commonsense gun safety reform”: Yoder has received considerable support from the gun lobby in recent years. He was among the top ten recipients of guns rights groups’ contributions to Congressional candidates in the 2016 election cycle, taking in $34,050, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. He’s received a total of $19,900 from the National Rifle Association since he first ran for Congress in 2010.The four-term Congressman has been a consistent backer of NRA-supported legislation. Yoder voted in favor of the bill signed by President Donald Trump in February 2017 that eliminated an Obama-era rule that would have made it more difficult for 75,000 people with mental illnesses to purchase guns. The White House has consistently refused to released photos from that bill signing ceremony.Yoder did support restrictions on bump stocks, the conversion that essentially turns semi-automatic rifles into automatic ones, in the wake of the Las Vegas shooting — restrictions that the NRA said it would support.last_img read more
