Skeleton Olympian of Ghana Akwasi Frimpong having moved up some 32 places last season in the world rankings jumping from 99th to moved 67th place in 2019 to qualify for the World Championships in Canada, though he has decided to focus on becoming Africa’s first Winter Olympics medalist in Beijing 2022 with his ‘Hope of a Billion’ project. His choice to focus on his long-term goals of showing everyone how an underdog can achieve their dreams has brought in its wake a mixture of good and not so good fortunes. The good news first — Akwasi has had a great season of highs on the track — the not so good news, he needs to fund the dream of becoming the ‘Hope of a Billion’ and that calls for funding to maintain his world-class Skeleton sliding coach Zach Lund among other finance miscellanies. Despite the challenges, Zach Lund believes Akwasi is on track for success and shares with TheAfricanDream.net and RobbyMesser.wordpress.com the reason behind this positive feeling in a Q&A: What was the toughest part of this season? Lund: The toughest part of this season was scheduling training and competitions with budget limitations. We had to make a game plan that would allow us to get the best “bang from our buck,” taking into account our development plan and available training and competitions. What would you say was Akwasi’s greatest area of growth and how does that prepare him as we get closer to 2022? Akwasi made great strides this season with his awareness down the track and being able to improve his split-second decision making and problem-solving. It is easy to look at a run after the fact and dissect it and analyze it. Unfortunately, when Akwasi is going down the track at 80+ mph he only has a split second to make a decision, which means it must be instinctive. We were able to work on this and he has become much better at making the right decisions while under pressure. What did you learn as Akwasi’s coach and coaching for Team Ghana? I learned how challenging it can be for small nations to compete on the world stage in Olympic sports. Coming from a background of working with the U.S. Team which is one of the biggest programs in the world I got a reality check of the challenges that all small nations face in sliding sports. Large programs have established National Olympic Committees and National Governing Bodies that provide a lot of support. Small nations, on the other hand, are usually left with very little to no outside support. This creates a big disadvantage for smaller nations competing against larger programs. Money is obviously a challenge for many Olympic athletes who work at their sport year-round. How did financing impact this season for you, Akwasi, and Team Ghana? I think in sports in general funding makes all the difference. There have been many studies done on the direct correlation of Olympic performances and funding. Support is critical to compete against the best in the world at anything. Many of the larger programs in the sport have financial support for their top athletes which allows them to train full time without distractions. Finding financial support necessary to compete against the problem-solving programs is something that the Ghana BSF has been working extremely hard to do. Do you expect to continue with Akwasi? If not, how can you still be a resource for him? I will always be there for Akwasi in some capacity. I strongly believe in his personal character and his mission as the “Hope of a Billion” and will always help him in whatever capacity I can. While funding limitations may put our future of working together in a full-time partnership in jeopardy, it will never come in between our friendship or our commitment to excellence. Does Akwasi’s performance this season put him in a good position to make the 2022 Olympics? Without a doubt. Akwasi’s improvement in his fundamentals and his world ranking is a testament of what hard work and good support can accomplish. Like Akwasi’s grandmother told him, he already has everything he needs to succeed inside him. However, simply making the 2022 Olympics is not our goal. Our goal is to compete for a medal in Beijing while also inspiring others to have the courage to follow their own dreams. In addition to success on the track, Akwasi organized an athlete combine in Salt Lake City as a way to recruit potential Ghanaian athletes to sliding sports. Zach Lund helped coach three recruits during a day of drills. Fans can help support Akwasi’s journey to become the Hope of a Billion by going to his website Frimpong.com or contacting BSF-Ghana for more info at contact@bsfghana.com.

A Short Guide to Orlando International Airport

Published

on

orlando airport

Orlando International Airport MCO is famous for being one of the busiest airports in the United States of America and even the whole globe. Being the tenth busiest airport in the world, it served 4,769,6627 passengers in 2018. Almost a thousand flights a day, the airport serves as the primary international gateway for the central Florida region. There is a connection to 135 different cities in the United States and beyond that are serviced by this airport. United Airlines, the largest airline in the United States and the globe, is maintained at MCO, which encompasses 5,383 hectares and is one of the largest commercial airports in the United States by area.

Brief terminal guide

The main terminal building at Orlando International Airport is part of the airport’s hub plan, which also includes four lateral aero sides with a total of more than a hundred gates and is connected to the main terminal building with elevated human-engine lines. Terminals maps Orlando Airport MCO (https://mco-airport.com/terminals-maps-orlando-airport/) are available in open access, and we do recommend using them, as the structure of the airport is quite complicated for the first-time user.

Shortly, on the two opposite sides, northern and southern, you can find respectively Terminal A and Terminal B. They form the whole structure of the airport and are the two main terminals of the Orlando International Airport

You can also find two security checkpoints in the Western (Terminals 1 and 3) and Eastern (Terminals 2 and 3) wings of the airport. Check-in and baggage check-in areas are located in both terminals. Passengers at MCO, unlike those at Tampa’s comparable airport system, must go through security checks before boarding man-powered transport to the aero sides.

To improve passengers’ experience, there is a hotel of Hyatt Regency company located just within the airport’s main terminal. The lobby is on the fourth floor, higher are guest rooms which are accessible from the terminal side of the East Atrium. Also, there is a restaurant on the upper level of the terminal building with views of the airport and runways, as well as conference rooms, many bars, and two restaurants for passengers waiting for their flights.

Passenger Recommendations

Due to the fact, that the Orlando International Airport MCO is a huge establishment, the team has developed a special application for the passengers. It is called «Orlando MCO Airport» and you can easily find it among Android Apps on Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.wOrlandoInternationalAirportcodeMCO_15976437) and download it for free. This app is a perfect way to benefit users’ experience not only with using the airport but also using an app.

No matter what struggles you face when arriving at the terminal — flight times and gates, delays, location of gates and terminals, an interactive map, which guides your path throughout your experience at the airport, shops and cafes, etc.

The app’s access to a wealth of web resources means that users may quickly find answers to their pressing travel questions and problems. The designers’ ultimate goal is to deliver lightning-fast assistance to every user in a time of need. Acquiring the Orlando MCO Airport app is all about providing superior support with an innovative digital infrastructure.

KINTAMPO WATERFALLS: “The Ultimate Come Back Kid”

Published

on

kintampo waterfalls canopy walk

Bad days are only temporary indeed. The Kintampo waterfalls have taught the world to trust in destiny and that nothing is permanent. Things change, and it’s never a bad thing. After going through fire, waterfalls sprouted green once again; reminding us that nature is resilient and can bounce back from anything.

Watching the Kintampo Waterfalls struggle with its own identity has been painful. In early 2017, the waterfall was declared unsafe for visitors, due to a major accident that led to the death of some students who were on tour. The message sent out was clear: no one should visit this place again until it is safe enough for people to return without any risk to their safety or well- being.

It was a chance to rekindle the flame of the once-burning Kintampo Waterfalls, so the site’s management created a canopy walkway as a companion attraction to the waterfalls, which were already popular. The location has been rebranded and is now the only waterfall in Ghana with a canopy walkway thanks to this fantastic innovation.
The Canopy Walkway offers a novel experience that includes giving visitors a bird’s-eye perspective of the surrounding area as well as an exhilarating sense of adventure.

The location is spacious enough for tourists /visitors or campers who want to spend the night there, and safety and security is guaranteed. One can visit Kintampo Waterfalls any day between the hours of 7:30 am and 5:30 pm as the park permits walk-up visitors. The tour guides at Kintampo Waterfalls feel that you are the perfect accompaniment, thus they provide extremely informative, calming, and educational interpretations. The majority of visitors have attested to this, giving them a reason to visit the location again.

How to get there?

The Kintampo Waterfalls is located in the Bono-East Region in Ghana, Along the Kintampo- Tamale highway, on the fringes of Kintampo, are the waterfalls, which are about 50 meters apart.
The closest airport is the newly opened Sunyani Airport, which is about a 120minute drive from the waterfalls. If you are coming from Accra, it will take about 3 hours. In case you are in a hurry and don’t want to take the scenic route, you can take the highway. The Kintampo waterfalls are easily accessible by road, and the road is in great shape.

Final words
The Kintampo Waterfalls have shown us that anything is possible. The waterfalls have bounced back and now they are bigger and better than ever before! The waterfalls are a must-see for anyone who visits the Bono-East region. The waterfalls are a beautiful sight to see, and they are also very important because they provide a source of clean water for the surrounding areas. For both plant and animal species, Kintampo Waterfalls offers a hospitable ecology. The site’s abundant vegetation is a significant factor in the ongoing effort to mitigate climate change. The Kintampo Waterfalls is an important tourist destination in Ghana that should be preserved and protected to allow people to enjoy the natural wonder for many years to come. These waterfalls are truly worthy of their title as “ultimate comeback kid”.

How to Find a Reliable Car Mechanic

Published

on

auto mechanic

It’s hard to know who to trust when it comes to a professional mechanic, especially if you don’t know much about cars. You’re often left wondering if you needed all those repairs the mechanic insisted on. That’s why it’s a good idea to start searching for a reliable car mechanic before you require anything done on your vehicle. You don’t usually have the time or luxury to make a calculated decision when your vehicle breaks down. The following article will provide helpful tips on finding a good mechanic, one you can entirely depend on.

Online Reviews

Please do your due diligence when it comes to researching online. Reviews by other people can help you make an informed decision. The best place to start your investigation into a reliable mechanic is at a search engine like Google. Remember, the first result may not be superior; it might be popular at that moment.

You will need to wade through good and bad reviews. Don’t be alarmed by less-than-stellar ones; you should avoid that mechanic and their shop if the negative reviews outweigh the positive ones. You can check out places like social media platforms, Better Business Bureau, and other review websites like Yelp if you still need more online opinions.

Word of Mouth

If you want an opinion on local mechanics, asking family members, co-workers, and friends for input can be beneficial. With any prosperous enterprise, mechanics rely on happy customers for repeat business. People in your life can give you recommendations based on their experience and at a place close to where you live (which is convenient). An outstanding reputation takes time. A new mechanic in the area doesn’t always have a strong presence yet, but it doesn’t mean they provide lousy service. Based on other criteria, it would be up to you if you wanted to try them out.

Have a Conversation with the Mechanic

Auto mechanics who genuinely care won’t mind taking the time to speak to you about your questions and concerns. You are a potential new customer; they will want your business, so make the trip out or place a simple phone call to alleviate your qualms. If you don’t get a good feeling about the shop or mechanic, that they don’t have the time for you, go elsewhere with your car. You want someone you can form a trust bond with over the long run.

It would be best if you started by asking them about their qualifications. Many mechanics aren’t always required to be licensed (depending on location). Still, it’s compulsory to (at least) have work experience, an apprenticeship, pass an examination, or have some education for the job. Make sure that they’re capable of working on your car. Some mechanics only deal with typical vehicles. A car with a European motor or a diesel one requires different parts and attention than the average car. If a mechanic deals with specialty vehicles regularly, they will have special knowledge, equipment, and credentials.

Pricing and Estimates

Verify the pricing for repairs and maintenance of your car with the mechanic you are interested in. They should be on par with other auto shops and mechanics. If they are overcharging, that doesn’t mean they will give you superior service. They are charging you outrageous prices, so you need to walk away. The same goes if their prices are too good to be true. It’s suspicious for a garage to have meager prices compared to other repair shops.

As a customer, it’s your prerogative to get an estimate of the repair or services involved in your vehicle before the mechanic moves ahead to work on it. You don’t have to accept the assessment. It’s a great idea to look up your rights regarding mechanics online. The more knowledge you have, the better equipped you will be to handle yourself. Getting the mechanic to give you an estimate also allows you to see how they work. Are they being truthful, communicating well, and being forthcoming? Are you getting along with the mechanic and staff? If dealing with this produces any “red flags,” you can reject the offer and move forward with a different shop or mechanic that is adequate for your wants and needs.

Exceptional Customer Service

Some auto shops might not be fancy or have a receptionist, but good customer service is more than that. A mechanic thrives on customer loyalty. They want their clients to trust them with their vehicles and come back again and again for maintenance and repairs. An impersonal mechanic and dealing with you like you are just something to check off on his list of things to do, doesn’t make you feel very appreciated. Yes, they provide an essential service, but you want to feel good about what you pay for.

In an overcrowded industry like automotive repair, you need to stick out from the masses. Some mechanics provide convenient early morning and late evening options for their clients because they have installed night key drop-off boxes outside their auto repair shop. They are secure, locking steel boxes where customers can drop off their car keys in an envelope before or after business hours. This service helps customers who work standard business hours and cannot drop off their car during that time. Night drop boxes and envelopes can be purchased from MBR Marketing at: https://mbrmarketing.com/service-department/night-drop-boxes-and-envelopes.

In the End 

The final words of advice would be to trust your intuition. If something doesn’t feel right about a mechanic or their shop, you aren’t forced to drop your car off there. A great business knows that providing fantastic customer service makes clients feel respected and valued. Not only will you trust your vehicle with your mechanic, but you’re also apt to recommend their business to others.

All The Sports Betting You Can Do in OKBet

Published

on

Picture 1

People bet on sports for decades now. The legalities can be up in the air but there are always people betting on which NBA team is going to clutch the championship title this year, and then next year, and so on. Plus, there are a ton of sports and events for people to bet on. That being said, OKBet has a section where people can place bets exclusively only on sports. If you don’t feel like playing casino games, then place your bets on the sporting events. Even if you’re not knowledgeable when it comes to sports, you can place bets not knowing if it’s right or now.

What are the sports that you can bet on OKBet?

They’ve provided a list of sports ranging from basketball to soccer, football (American), baseball, hockey, tennis, and golf. There are even racing events such as motorsports and even horse racing. Plus, MMA is also a part of their things that you can bet on when it comes to sports. The games you can bet on can be made available if you plan on betting. Popular sports organizations are always included like the NBA and more. Just browse through what they have to offer.

The specific bets for sports games

  1. Moneyline Bet

The Moneyline bet is simply which team or player wins the match if the latter isn’t a team-oriented sport. This one is very straightforward because you just have to choose which team or person wins the game. There are no complications and calculations to it. If your picks win, then you win as well.

  1. Spread Bet

This is a bit more complicated but to make it easy, you’re betting on the points of the team you are betting on. Let’s say you bet on Team A which is the favorite to win. This means that Team A has to win the game with a specific point advantage. To further the example, let’s say the spread is a plus and minus 7. Basically, Team A has to win the game with a point lead beyond 7 points. If they are unable to do so, regardless if they win, you still lose. If you bet on Team B which is the least favorite to win, they need to have a point gap of fewer than 7 points. Even if Team B loses, if they only lose by 5 points, you still win. If Team B wins the game, then that’s an automatic win for those that bet on them. A tie (in case there are no overtimes) means that all bettors will lose and not gain anything.

  1. Parlay Bet

Parlay bets are combining a multitude of bets. Let’s say you bet on three teams to win their games. If you combine all three of them, they all have to win their games. If one team loses, then, the entire parlay bet loses. It’s a riskier type of bet but the reward can be bigger.

  1. Totals Bet

This one is a bit trickier since it involves chances, odds, and a little math. Basically, you’re betting on the score of the teams if it is over or under the determined amount.

  1. Props Bet

A props bet revolves around a team or player that people can bet on. The performance will vary and the bets can change so just make sure to check more on this on OKBet.

Gamble on sports in OKBet now

If you love sports and gambling, then try betting on these events today. Armed with your knowledge of sports, you can go for any of the said methods of betting in OKBet and take advantage.
