US Amazon reportedly planning to launch new gro

first_img U.S.: Amazon reportedly planning to launch new gro … While the announcement had many analysts speculating that Amazon would dominate grocery sales both online and off, that has yet to be seen, notes the publication.Still, Amazon has found its share of success with the acquisition.The company – which ranked first in the Internet Retailer 2019 Top 1000 – benefited from the strategic move in several ways. For one, it can now offer online orders from dozens of Whole Foods stores for home delivery in two hours. This service is available in more than 60 cities via Prime Now.It also offers Prime Members curbside pickup of Whole Foods online orders as well as certain discounts.A third benefit is how the acquisition has driven incremental purchases to Whole Foods for shoppers picking up online orders at a locker.Finally, although not tangible, a key advantage for Amazon has been the media buzz surrounding the acquisition, says Paula Rosenblum, co-founder and managing partner at the consultancy Retail Systems Research.“[The major benefit is] endless free PR and striking terror in the hearts of grocers around the world,” the publication quotes her saying.That fear has motivated some of the largest grocers and mass merchants to amp up their grocery services in the years following the acquisition, Digital Commerce 360 adds.For instance, in November 2017, grocery chain operator Albertsons Cos. Inc. started online grocery delivery for orders on JewelOsco.com in select markets, in addition to its home delivery program for its Safeway grocery stores. June 21 , 2019 Another example is Target Corp., which announced in 2017 that it would acquire delivery service Shipt, which can deliver groceries same day.Walmart also stepped up its services. In addition to its curbside pickup service of fresh groceries and online delivery service, the company this month announced its new Delivery Unlimited service, a grocery deliver subscription service in Houston, Miami, Salt Lake City and Tampa, with more markets to come.The publication indicates that, in the past few years, consumers have demonstrated a growing appetite for buying groceries online, as online sales and e-commerce’s share of total sales have continued to climb for supermarket chains in Internet Retailer’s Top 1000.It refers to a just-released Food Marketing Institute’s U.S. Grocery Shopper Trends 2019 report, which published findings from a survey of 1,786 U.S. adults in February 2019.The survey showed that 33% of regular consumers shop at online-only retailers for groceries at least sometimes, up from 28% in 2018, 25% in 2017, 20% in 2016 and 16% in 2015.Additionally, 43% of shoppers have placed an online grocery order in the past year, and 10% of shoppers say they shop online for groceries at least every two weeks.For online sales, Amazon is the most popular choice for shoppers, notes Digital Commerce 360.In the first few months of 2018, Amazon captured 30% of online grocery spending in the U.S.—as much as all grocery chains combined—according to a May 2018 survey of 4,855 U.S. adults by Brick Meets Click, a consultancy for grocery retailers and the consumer packaged goods industry.Bloomberg estimates that Amazon sold US$25.4 billion in groceries both online and in stores in 2018, which doesn’t include an additional US$23.6 billion in sales of consumables.However, online sales represented just 5.5% of total U.S. grocery sales in 2018, Brick Meets Click says.In 2019, the firm expects it to grow to 6.3%. And for these total grocery sales, Amazon is not even close to catching up to the major chains and its mass merchant competitors.According to Bloomberg News, for the overall grocery market, Amazon/Whole Foods only captures 3.7% of grocery sales and Walmart is still the largest grocer.

Def – 31 Pittsburgh Steelers CLE – Pittsburghs

first_imgDef – 31% Pittsburgh Steelers @ CLE – Pittsburgh’s D has turned a corner since its really bad start, and it has a fantastic fantasy matchup this week. Jason Campbell at QB for Cleveland isn’t scary at all, and if the Steelers can stop Josh Gordon, they can stop the Browns. The Bengals’ defense destroyed the Browns last week, and Cleveland’s offense is about to hit a brick wall in the Steelers — who, oddly enough, are still in the playoff race. If Pittsburgh wins this week, it will be two games behind the Bengals for the division lead with three of its last four games coming at home, including matchups with the Bengals in Week 15 and Browns in Week 17. Top Stories Your browser does not support the audio element. RB – 22% Chris Ogbonnaya, CLE vs. PIT – I had a lot of trouble coming up with a pick for this spot, and I’m not sure I even like the player I’ve put down. There aren’t a lot of unowned RBs worth starting, and I’ve reluctantly put him in at my RB2 with that five-player bye team I mentioned above. He’d be the flex, but Ben Tate may not play, and if he’s out, I’d rather replace him with someone who isn’t a running back. Pittsburgh has been giving up almost three receptions per game to RBs, and Ogbonnaya is getting a lot more snaps than Willis McGahee. Josh Gordon is Cleveland’s only deep threat, and after getting punished by Cincinnati last week, I’m thinking Jason Campbell will be looking to dump the ball off to Ogbonnaya.TE – 10% John Carlson, MIN @ GB – After the injury to Kyle Rudolph, Carlson has put together two strong weeks in a row. He’s putting up very similar numbers, and with the stagnant Vikings offense around Adrian Peterson, Christian Ponder will try to get as many yards as possible while scrambling away from Packers defenders, thus making Carlson a threat to receive Ponder’s short passes. Expect numbers similar to what we’ve seen the last few weeks — and what we’ve seen all season — from Rudolph. He should end up with about five receptions and 50 yards plus a touchdown if you’re lucky. Week 12 is the turning point. If you’re at the top, you can clinch your playoff berth; and if you’re in the middle, a win this weekend could put you in playoff position. It’s an exciting time to be one game over .500, especially if there are six playoff spots in your league. Perhaps you’re like me and have five starters on bye. (OK, so I loaded up one team with three Seahawks. Call me a homer; call me a moron; just know that I’ve had to add two of the guys below in order to fill out my lineup.) I’m missing my three starting RBs and two starting wideouts, so I really needed to do some patchwork, and that included dropping Darren McFadden and relinquishing his 12th-round keeper value. It’s one of those situations where I need to fill out a full lineup and I’m sick of keeping a player who sits more than he suits up — no matter what his draft value is every season. Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and sellingcenter_img This week we have the Seahawks, Bengals, Bills and Eagles on bye. All of these teams have top offensive players (even the Bills), and some of you are shaking up your teams in order to put a full lineup in play.Here are my picks for bye week fill-ins for Week 12 (all percentages are from Yahoo! Fanatsy Football):QB – 6 percent owned Scott Tolzien, GB vs. MIN – The Vikings pass defense has had a lot of trouble lately, giving up multiple-TD performances to quarterbacks four out of their last five games. All of those QBs are first-stringers, but that doesn’t mean that Tolzien can’t follow in their footsteps. He still has Jordy Nelson, and has shown great chemistry with Jarrett Boykin, a connection I feel goes unnoticed throughout fantasy football and the NFL. Quarterbacks who start the season lower on the depth chart don’t always get reps with the first team in practice, especially if you’re playing behind Aaron Rodgers. Boykin was, at best, the fourth wideout on the depth chart in Week 1, and Tolzien was the third-string quarterback. These guys have run a lot of reps together, and we could see a huge game from Boykin this weekend.WR – 40% Kenny Stills, NO @ ATL – He had 86 yards in Week 1 against the Falcons and is much more involved in the offense now. Atlanta has really been struggling lately, decimated by injuries and poor play from Stephen Jackson and “Matty (melting) Ice” Ryan. On the other hand, New Orleans is on fire. Drew Brees has been throwing the ball better than anybody not named Peyton this season, and has been getting the rookie Stills more involved as the season has gone on. This is a great play in PPR league, and gives you a great reason to watch the Thursday night game.

(Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Top Stories But even more than the plays he makes for the team, Arians said Mathieu’s personality is infectious. When the defensive back is having a good time, it permeates through the rest of the team.“The guys love him, everybody loves him,” Arians said. “It’s good to see him have the spirit back because he didn’t have it last year.”“It’s fun again,” Mathieu said. “I’m able to do more. I’m just excited about being healthy, just being out there.”And that’s really the key for Mathieu.No one doubts his talent or ability. No, the question is about whether the 5-foot-9, 186-pound defensive back can stay healthy over the course of an entire season. Do that and the rest will take care of itself.“I know if I’m on the field and healthy that I’m going to make plays, I’m pretty confident in that,” he said. – / 23 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo For Mathieu, the process of getting back to being himself has been a long and arduous one. The knee injury that ended his 2013 season after 13 games and limited him in 2014 is finally a thing of the past though, which means the player who starred as a rookie can once again shine bright for Arizona’s defense.Mathieu said there has not been a single moment that made him think he was back, but rather a collection of instances throughout the offseason where he made plays and was able to break on footballs, things he was struggling to do last season.“Just getting that confidence back,” he said. “I think that was the biggest part for me, just being confident again. So I’m definitely happy it’s all back.”As are the Cardinals.When he’s right, Mathieu is as dynamic a player you will find in a defensive secondary. Able to move into the slot as a corner or play on the back end as a safety, his versatility is something the team’s defense can be built around.The former third-round pick out of LSU embraces the expectations, and understands this is a big season for him.“They say that you are who you are in your third year, so I really want to put my best work on the field this year,” Mathieu said. GLENDALE, Ariz. — There was a play during the Arizona Cardinals’ first training camp practice Saturday that likely got many on the Arizona sideline excited.Tyrann Mathieu reached in and batted in the air a pass that was intended for John Brown, stepped in front of the receiver before the ball came down and then ripped it away for an interception.“Just doing just like he did in the spring, he looks like he’s back to being himself, and that’s a good thing,” Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said.

Anquan Boldins retirement puts an end to a footba

first_imgAnquan Boldin’s retirement puts an end to a football career that spanned four teams — and part of this season’s training camp with the Buffalo Bills.It included a historic rookie campaign for the Arizona Cardinals, a Super Bowl win with the Baltimore Ravens and successful seasons with the 49ers and Lions as his career waned.The Cardinals’ No. 54 overall pick in 2003 believes the time is right for him to use his platform for a cause beyond the football field. That he’ll attempt to become a voice for civil rights is no surprise considering his giving, thoughtful attitude that won him the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award just a few seasons ago. But NFL fans will miss his passion.Debate all you will about where he ranks among the best receivers ever — former Arizona QB Kurt Warner will fight for his Hall of Fame candidacy — what are not debatable are the traits that put him in the conversation.Here are the five things that made Boldin in the conversation for the HOF.ToughnessEveryone can cite the single event that acted as the evidence.On Sept. 28, 2008, Boldin leapt to make a catch against the New York Jets when he got wedged between defenders and took a vicious hit to the face.It took seven plates and 40 metal screws to repair a fractured sinus membrane. He missed just two games.Returning a month later, he was the same receiver. Boldin would catch no fewer than five balls over the remaining eight regular season games, including six touchdowns, before helping Arizona make a postseason run that ended with a 27-23 loss to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII.In 14 seasons, Boldin only failed to play 12 regular season games once. He appeared in just 10 games during his second season (2004) but never fewer.ReliabilityNever the speediest wideout who could separate from defenders, nor one who was going to consistently out-leap a defensive back for a jump ball, Boldin made his living turning incompletions into catches with his incredible one-handed grabs and adjustments mid-route. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Statement from GM Brandon Beane on Anquan Boldin. pic.twitter.com/G8k6Tx0HUN— Buffalo Bills (@buffalobills) August 21, 2017 Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impactcenter_img Big-game moments Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires With the Cardinals, it wasn’t uncommon for Warner to put the ball well out of reach of any defensive backs in the area and just far close enough to Boldin to adjust for the catch.Few receivers had quite the same catch radius as Boldin. No matter where the ball was thrown — right in his chest or just within his reach — the numbers show he was as steady as they come.Shiftiness with sizeDo you call it shiftiness? Power? Quickness?Whether he was in his route, repositioning himself to make a tough grab or fighting for extra yards after the catch, Boldin was a master of using his 6-foot-1, 220 pound frame against defenders. Within small spaces, his ability to get his big body to react so quickly was impressive.Once he made a catch, he was always able to gain an extra two yards by putting his bowling ball frame into creases and another two more by shouldering into defenders attempting to make the tackle.Where’d it show up in the numbers?After Larry Fitzgerald and Wes Welker, no player had more yards after catch (3,495) than Boldin since 2008, per Pro Football Focus. We’d assume if those stats were available beyond that season, his early portion of his career with the Cardinals wouldn’t knock him down any pegs in that regard. 5 Comments   Share   Boldin might have been Option 1B behind Larry Fitzgerald when the Cardinals made their Super Bowl run in 2008, but he received more targets (12 to eight) than Fitzgerald in the loss to Pittsburgh and caught eight balls for 84 yards.But Boldin only got better with age. He made three playoff runs with the Ravens culminating in a four-game run that included four touchdown grabs and a Super Bowl win in 2012. In that game against the 49ers, he caught six balls for 104 yards along with a touchdown.All-in-all, Boldin’s teams made the playoffs in six of his 14 seasons.An ultimate teammateHas anyone said a bad thing about Boldin?Even as Fitzgerald’s rise perhaps overshadowed his value to the point the Cardinals might have undervalued him, Boldin never wavered as a teammate.And as of last week, he made it clear he appreciated a drama-free life. Boldin was never a locker-room trouble-maker or a distraction.After playing by far his worst season in 2016 with Detroit, his decision to suddenly drop out of the Bills’ plans was viewed as a huge blow to the team lacking much at receiver to begin with.The Bills didn’t take the abrupt change of plans bitterly.last_img read more


Fitzgeralds involvement in the community and nati

first_imgFitzgerald’s involvement in the community and nationwide started with his First Down Fund, established in 2005. The charity’s two priorities, according to Fitzgerald’s website, is to “promote reading proficiency and technology” for children and “support events to prevent and cure breast cancer.”“There’s nobody better to do it. Nobody gives back like Larry,” said Oliver Badgio, chief brand officer of Prime Steak Concept.Badgio has been involved with Fitz’s Supper Club event for five years.Fitzgerald’s charity work stems from his late mother’s involvement in the community.“When we were young, my brother and I would see her doing it and want to be a part of it, so I promised myself once I had the platform and the ability to help, I was going to go full speed ahead and do it and thank God, I’ve been able to do it so far,” Fitzgerald said.The 34-year-old was born in Minneapolis and despite living 1,600 miles from his hometown, Fitzgerald continues to give back to his Midwest community. Fitzgerald’s late grandfather, Dr. Robert Johnson, founded the Plano Child Development Center in Minnesota, which Fitzgerald donates to annually.And entering his 15th season with the Cardinals, Fitzgerald is a constant presence and active member of the Arizona community. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “When you go to school and you see kids working on some of the things that you have helped put in the school for them, it just really melts your heart to know that’s being utilized,” Fitzgerald said. “It just makes you feel like what you’re doing is not in vain. It’s for a worthy cause.”The 10th annual Fitz’s Supper Club event will be held Aug. 27 at Dominick’s Steakhouse in Scottsdale. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 0 Comments   Share   SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — Eleven-time Pro Bowler Larry Fitzgerald donned a white chef coat and proudly held a piece of steak he prepared at Dominick’s Steakhouse on a Wednesday night.When asked what was harder, hitting the golf course, playing on the field or cooking a steak, the Arizona Cardinals wide receiver said, “definitely cooking a steak. … I burnt my fingers a couple of times.”Fitzgerald, entering his 15th season with the team, was promoting his 10th annual Fitz’s Supper Club event, which will be held in late August at the Scottsdale steakhouse. “He’s an amazing person both on and off the field,” said Adam Richman, the Arizona Cardinals community relations director. “He does a lot in the community that nobody knows about. … He touches a lot of people.”Fitzgerald said it’s his responsibility to give back. Referencing other athletes such as LeBron James and the new school he started, Fitzgerald said it is true greatness to use the time and resources professional athletes are blessed with to help those who are less fortunate.“The things that we’ve been able to do have been magnificent,” Fitzgerald said. “Just giving kids technology and helping women with their mammograms and early detection of breast cancer. That’s where we are, and that’s where are scope of focus is.”Despite his attention on the football field, with 1,234 receptions, 110 touchdowns and 15,545 yards in his 14 years with the Cardinals, Fitzgerald’s does not seek such fame in his charity work.“He wants the event to be about the kids or the group or entity that he’s helping. He doesn’t want it to be about him,” Richman said. “That’s why I think he doesn’t want the attention or want to bang his chest.”With the many events that Fitzgerald is involved in, he said his most memorable moments are those where he can help children in the community.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Despite the Cardinals ranking No. 31 in Clay’s win projections at 5.6, the case isn’t completely illogical.David Johnson scored 20 touchdowns in 2016, and if he’s back to form after last season’s wrist injury, the Cardinals’ offense will make a big push forward. The offense also will need competent quarterback play from Sam Bradford or Josh Rosen and another year of production from 35-year-old Larry Fitzgerald. Chandler Jones and Patrick Peterson will need to hold down the fort defensively, and the unit will need breakout campaigns from youngsters Budda Baker, Haasan Reddick, Robert Nkemdiche and Markus Golden.As Clay outlines, the talent is there.Related LinksCardinals QB Josh Rosen would ‘love’ as many reps as possible vs. BroncosCardinals’ Tre Boston is adjusting to that desert lifeThe 5: Cardinals position battles of note for their preseason finaleJohnson is one of the league’s best running backs, and a season where he is the league’s best running back is a big wining step for Arizona. Bradford has established himself as a competent NFL quarterback when healthy and no one can discount the talent Rosen has. Add in the consistency of Fitzgerald and that could be enough for a sustainable offense.Defensively is where there’s the most optimism. Jones and Peterson are two of the best players at their positions, but this is not a duo of stars relying on iffy contributions from others like the offense will. Baker, Reddick, Nkemdiche and Golden all have the potential to be game-changers at their position. The chance for big years from those four, as Clay notes, could make Arizona a dominant defense, one that would be good enough for 10 wins. Most importantly, the Cardinals have high-level players across the field. But that, actually, is where Clay pauses for a second and sends us back to reality.The Cardinals have a few stars in the form of Johnson, Fitzgerald, Peterson and Jones, but there are significant problem areas across the starting 22. Quarterback is obviously a gigantic question mark, wide receiver and tight end lack firepower, and the offensive line is average at best. Aside of a strong safety trio, the defense has major concerns at every level.That reality on offense is overly relying on Bradford’s knee or a rookie quarterback and a receiving group beyond Fitzgerald that lacks any sort of reliability at the moment. The offensive line will be hoping for a resurgence from Andre Smith and Mike Iupati or breakout seasons for the younger Mason Cole and D.J. Humphries in order to make a real impact.On defense, the defensive line is without Golden for the time being. At linebacker, a bounce-back year from Deone Bucannon would be a big boost, as would Reddick looking like the player general manager Steve Keim selected at No. 13 overall in last year’s draft. Lastly, it’s no surprise to see the cornerback on the opposite side of Patrick Peterson as a question mark. 8 Comments   Share   Top Stories center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The expectations for double-digit wins certainly are not there for the Arizona Cardinals this season.There is some positive buzz surrounding the team locally, but nothing that would suggest any indication a playoff run is coming, as they are tabbed at an over/under win total in Vegas of 5.5.The NFL, though, can be fairly unpredictable, and there is a case for the Cardinals to have a season that shocks many.That’s what ESPN’s Mike Clay looked into, making the case for each team to win at least 10 games.

first_img4. The Broad ChareAt the Broad Chare near the Quayside they pride themselves on good pub grub and good pub booze. It’s fancy, but in a good way. Cask ales and ciders and a great menu of British classics make this a good place for a post-match feed possibly washed down with a few oat sodas.5. Fat HippoFor diner style burgers, fries and hot dogs head to Fat Hippo. They have a vast selection of massive burgers and good veggie options – which can be a rarity at burger restaurants – the service is pretty fast too so if you need a quick bite on the way to the game, hit Fat Hippo.https://instagram.com/p/ux6-YRvhcA/6. The Newcastle ArmsThe Newcastle Arms is a cracking pre/post match pub and a regular haunt for fans heading to St James’Park. It’s one of the best in town on Newcastle United match days. Real ale buffs will be salivating at the ale selection and you might get lucky to be there for one of the beer festivals. If you’re after hip and trendy or shots of radioactive coloured liquid, then this isn’t your place, but if you want a few pints on your way to or from St James’Park in a proper pub, then the Arms is the place to go.7. Digital Since opening in 2005, north east mega-club Digital has been voted the 11th best nightclub in the world. Hosting two big floors of music, it’s popular with both locals and visitors meaning queues can get a little long after about 11pm. Get there early to catch the DJs and live rock bands.Where to stayIf you’re looking for rooms on a budget you couldn’t do better than those on offer at the centrally located Albatross Backpackers hostel. It’s well situated, being just a short walk to the metro, shops, bars and St James’ Park. The rooms are clean and comfy and there’s secure car parking at the rear. As it’s a hostel, some amenities are shared – kitchen, TV lounge, wifi area – but for location and price it’s a good bet for a couple of nights.Morning!

Newcastle is always ready for a party and this summer they’re throwing open that welcome to rugby fans for the Rugby World Cup.Newcastle is renowned for its lively city centre and nightlife and there are bars and restaurants aplenty within walking distance of St James’ Park. Newcastle is more renowned for the round ball game, but as it’s World Cup time there will be no end of bars offering up big screen sport and beers aplenty, while an official World Cup fan zone will be open for the tournament, providing big screens to watch the games and get you warmed up with rugby fever.Will Cooper provides a few pointers on what to do and where to eat and drink while you’re soaking up the festival of the oval ball in Newcastle.1. BerliseBerlise in Jesmond has big screens inside and out, so you should be able to get a comfy spot to enjoy the game. They also have some good drink deals so you won’t have to break the bank for your brown ales.2. NineRight on the doorstep of the hallowed turf at St James’ Park is Nine (formerly called Shearer’s). They show all live sport inside and do a decent selection of bar meals, be warned that it gets busy on game days so pre or post-match food can take a little longer.3. Tyne BarWhen the weather’s fine the Tyne Bar beer garden is a top spot. It’s tucked away just outside of the city centre but it’s worth a walk if you’re in the mood for some good ale, live music and a friendly Geordie atmosphere. The beer garden overlooks the river (hence the name).last_img read more


Discover these 6 destinations before everyone else

first_imgPhoto credit: Pixabay It’s a couple of years now since the former Soviet republic of Georgia got its first direct flights from the UK, and a year since Lonely Planet named it one of the top destinations for 2018. Yet still this eastern European country continues to fly under the mainstream tourist radar, remaining one of the continent’s best-kept secrets. For now, at least, as returning travellers wax ever more lyrical about the beauty of the country, the excellent food and drink and the warmth and hospitality of the people, it can’t be long before the word is out and Georgia finally shakes off its underrated status. Definitely time to go there now, then, and be a step ahead of the crowds when it comes to exploring Tbilisi’s red-roofed old town, touring the vineyards of the Kakheti wine region, and hiking and skiing the uncrowded slopes of the Caucasus mountains. It won’t cost a fortune: transport, food and accommodation are all reasonably priced, making this a great destination for travellers on a budget. Search flights to Tasmania Search hotels in Namibia For years, Aussie-bound tourists have neglected Tasmania. That’s all changing though, and visitor numbers are beginning to boom as the world suddenly wakes up to everything this isolated island has going for it, from fascinating heritage and weird and wonderful wildlife to burgeoning foodie and cultural scenes – so go now if you want to be ahead of the crowds. Renting a car is the easiest way to explore but if you’re travelling solo and can’t split the cost with anyone, the alternative is to join a backpacker tour instead – it’s not as flexible but it will work out cheaper. Do urban cool in the increasingly buzzy cities of Hobart and Launceston; explore convict sites and colonial villages; and follow gourmet trails that guide you round vineyards, farms and boutique breweries. Most of all, though, get out in to the great outdoors: huge chunks of Tasmania are made up of protected reserves and National Parks just crying out to be explored in whatever gung-ho manner takes your fancy. Search flights to Calgary Photo credit: Pixabay 2. Namibia 5. Tasmania The Canadian province of Alberta isn’t exactly undiscovered – down on the south-western border with British Columbia you’ll find plenty of tourists admiring the waterfalls, glaciers, lakes and mountains in the Banff and Jasper National Parks. Most of them flock here in summer though, so come outside peak season and you’ll find things altogether quieter. Or just head further north and east, where there are fewer tourists and quirkier landmarks, from an eccentric collection of roadside sculptures (including a ginormous dinosaur and the world’s first UFO landing pad) to the Star Trek-themed visitor centre in Vulcan and Torrington’s Gopher Hole Museum, entirely devoted to dioramas of furry critters dressed up in character costumes. Keep going to the far north of the province and you’ll come to Wood Buffalo National Park (Canada’s largest national park and the world’s largest Dark Sky Preserve), where bison graze the plains, beavers build giant dams and the Northern Lights often dance across the autumn and winter skies. ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepartReturnCabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map Explore with a hire car Search hotels in Francistown Download the app to buy train tickets Search hotels in Calgary Search hotels in Punta Arenas Every year glossy travel mags and newspaper travel supplements nominate their hot destinations for the year – and for 2019 pretty much everyone seems to agree that Namibia is the place to be. Time to get your skates on then, if you want to enjoy its vast open wildernesses without too many fellow travellers spoiling the view. The big buzz at the moment is about a spate of new luxury lodges opening up, allowing travellers with big bucks to stay in serious style – but the cash-poorer can carry on doing things in time-honoured fashion, travelling around by battered four-wheel-drive and staying in campsites and modest guest houses. You don’t come here for swanky accommodation anyway; you come for the extraordinary, awe-inspiring landscapes – the rugged beauty of desert and dunes, the wild drama of canyons and coast, the close encounters with all kinds of wildlife and the most spectacular night skies you’re ever likely to see.  Patagonia – the remote mountainous region that straddles southern Chile and Argentina – is set for a popularity boost thanks to the recent launch of the world’s longest hiking trail. The Route of Parks runs for 1,700 miles and passes through 17 national parks en route from Puerto Montt to Cape Horn. For the moment, though, the area still feels remote, empty and unspoiled. Is it the cheapest part of the continent? No, but then it’s a long way from anywhere, so essential supplies have a long way to travel. You can keep costs down by camping, staying in hostels or booking rooms in local homes and by travelling outside the peak period of December to March. And frankly, whatever you pay, it’s worth it. This is a stunning part of the world with scenic treats at every turn, from the dramatic granite peaks and icy turquoise lakes of Torres del Paine to the colossal, creaking, blue-white cliffs of the Perito Moreno glacier. 4. Georgia Already one of the most sparsely populated countries in Africa, Botswana also gets far fewer tourists than places like South Africa and Kenya, so you don’t get the nose-to-tail safari traffic jams that can occur in some of the continent’s busier game reserves. The opportunities for wildlife viewing are superb, whether you’re crossing the vast saltpans of the Kalahari or paddling a dug-out canoe through the Okavango Delta. The bad news? It doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it comes positively pricey – but there are ways to cut the costs. Forsake the luxury lodges and opt instead for a self-drive holiday or join a mobile safari, where you travel round with a guide and a vehicle full of camping supplies; the more you’re prepared to muck in (putting up your own tents and helping out with the cooking), the cheaper it will be. Alternatively, travel in the rainy season (November/December to March/April): wildlife is trickier to spot and some roads might be cut off but lodges reduce their overnight rates.   center_img ReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Map 1.

Four hundred years ago Galileo raised his telescop

first_imgFour hundred years ago Galileo raised his telescope to the heavens and profoundly changed the way we understand the universe. Since then, many have been inspired by Galileo’s example, from Newton, Herschel and Halley to the immensely talented father of amateur telescope making, Russell Porter. Porter may be best known for his contributions to the design of the 200 inch Hale telescope, but he is most fondly remembered for the marvel he designed for the luxury market in the 1920s: the Porter Garden Telescope. It reminds us of a time when tools and instruments were artistically designed and masterfully engineered. The Porter Garden Telescope, a beautiful art nouveau botanical sculpture and a technically superior reflecting telescope, is a marriage of art and science.Today, the Porter Garden Telescope is once more in production. It embraces 21st century technology yet retains the fluid lines which captivated the original owners over eighty years ago. A family heirloom and enduring investment, the bronze outdoor installation is limited to 200 units. Each one represents a collaboration of talented New England craftsmen and reflects the discriminating taste of all who choose to own it.Allow the Porter Garden Telescope to capture your imagination by visiting the Nicholas Brawer Gallery, which specializes in historic, one-of-a kind objects from the golden age of travel, with a particular emphasis on nautical, aeronautical and motoring items, at 28 East 72nd Street, New York, New York, at Madison Avenue.nicholasbrawer.com/last_img read more
