Emirates Airline has won  the ‘Outstanding Airline Company of the Year’ award at Ghana’s West Africa Business Excellence Awards, held at The Movenpick Ambassador Hotel. The award was in recognition of the airline’s focus on customer health and safety as a top priority amid the pandemic, in addition to meeting and exceeding their expectations through innovative products and services. The accolade also acknowledges the airline’s commitment to outstanding business standards in its sector, whilst demonstrating a high standard of service delivery, competitiveness and innovation.

 

The event was attended by distinguished business and government representatives and industry leaders, aimed to recognize individuals and companies that play a significant role in the development of various sectors in their respective West African countries. Emirates has also received other accolades from the awarding body, including, ‘Outstanding Airline Brand of the Year’ in 2019 and ‘Most Safety and Security Conscious Airline’, in 2018, all affirming the airline’s commitment to operational excellence and innovation, as well as providing award-winning product and service to its customers with an emphasis on the rigorous health and safety measures, both in the air and on the ground.

 

Cathrine Wesley, Emirates Country Manager for Ghana and Ivory Coast, received the award on behalf of the airline at the event and said, “We are honoured to receive the Outstanding Airline Company of the Year, and to be recognised for our commitment to Ghana, as well as being an active member and supporter of its business community. During this unprecedented time, we have remained dedicated to serving our customers, connecting them to their families, linking businesses together with their suppliers and partners, whilst ensuring their health and safety is never compromised, at every touchpoint. We all hope to recover together, better than before.”

 

As a global airline, Emirates is fully focused and committed to its network, and the airline is working hard to rebuild it to pre-pandemic network. Emirates continues to lead the industry with innovative products and services that address traveller needs during a dynamic time. Recently the airline took its customer care initiatives even further with even more generous and flexible booking policies, an extension of its multi-risk insurance cover, and helping loyal customers retain their miles and tier status.

 

Emirates remains focused on taking the stress out of travel, and has led the industry in protecting the health of its customers to ensure a feeling of safety and confidence when deciding to fly. Emirates customers travel with the assurance that the latest health and safety measures are in place at every step of the journey. The airline has also recently introduced contactless technology to ease customers through Dubai airport.

Onboard, all Emirates cabin crew are fully kitted out in PPEs, lavatories are cleaned every 45 minutes, and all aircraft are deep cleaned in Dubai and go through enhanced cleaning and disinfection process after every trip. These are but a few precautionary measures Ghanaian passengers can expect. Knowing their safety and wellbeing is looked after, customers across all classes can enjoy more than 4,500 channels of entertainment on ice, the airline’s award-winning inflight entertainment system, along with regionally inspired gourmet meals. Emirates fleet of Boeing 777 and Airbus A380 wide-body aircraft also allow customers ample space on flights, regardless of cabin preferences.

9 Scenic Locations To Visit Around The World

Published

on

Whether you are planning a solo trip or a holiday with your extended family, your vacation should be a time to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenes of a new place. If you are brainstorming ideas for your next trip, consider one of these nine scenic destinations around the world.

1. Hawaii

Pack a beach towel and sunscreen because nothing beats the view of Hawaii’s gorgeous beaches. If you are looking for something more active to do, consider a tour of the island’s waterfalls or volcanoes. Sign up for a snorkeling excursion if you prefer undersea adventures.

With so many islands and activities in this southern state, consider taking a Hawaii cruise. By taking a cruise, you get to see more sights around the islands than you would if you booked a hotel.

2. Hever Castle

Hever Castle was the home of Henry VIII’s wife Anne Boleyn when she was growing up. It is located in Kent, England. You can even stay at a bed and breakfast located on the castle grounds. Not only is the castle itself a sight to see, but the landscape surrounding it is gorgeous as well.

3. East Coast

If history is your thing, you will love taking in all the historic landmarks up and down the East Coast of North America. Before leaving, make a list of all the historic locations you want to see, such as the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, Ford’s Theater and Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. and the Old North Church in Boston.

With so many places to see in different states, start south and work your way north or vice versa. In order to fully appreciate each landmark, try to book a couple of weeks for this trip to give you enough time to drive and tour each location.

4. Cliffs of Moher

One of the most popular locations in Ireland is the Cliffs of Moher. Not only is this stunning cliff home to beautiful greenery and a variety of birds, but it is located over 700 feet above the coast, making it one of the most popular places for visitors to tour.

5. Italy

Italy is also famous for breathtaking historic landmarks, such as the Colosseum, the Pantheon and a number of churches and cathedrals. It also boasts a number of beautiful wineries where you can tour the vineyards and sample the wine. Plus, nothing goes better with wine and a beautiful view than some world-famous pasta!

6. Kyoto

No matter what your definition of “beauty” is, there is something for everyone in Japan’s city of Kyoto. The city is especially beautiful when the cherry blossoms are in bloom, usually around mid-March. From perfectly trimmed gardens to shrines to colorful festivals and celebrations, there is an endless number of sites to see.

7. Angel Falls

If you really want to take in a majestic site, visit Angel Falls in Canaima National Park, Venezuela. This gorgeous waterfall is 3,212 feet tall, making it the tallest in the world.

8. Tane Mahutu

While New Zealand has many breathtaking views, one of the most unique ones is the Tane Mahutu, which translates to “King of the Forest.” This wondrous tree is said to be over 2,000 years old, 42 feet wide and 167 feet tall. The tree is located at the top of North Island; you can even camp overnight in the forest if you simply cannot leave this majestic sight.

9. Chicago

If you love the hustle and bustle of the city, you will love all the sights the city of Chicago offers. Take a boat tour on Lake Michigan to see all the architectural treasures of the city. You can also see the lake at the famous Navy Pier while enjoying the rides, food and entertainment this attraction has to offer.

If you are looking for a new scenic destination to visit, these nine locations will make your vacation worthwhile

Let’s talk about atonzo.com

Published

on

If you don’t know what it is, it’s a relatively new B2c online shopping app where people can advertise their products and services in few simple steps.

When I first heard about it, I thought it was just another usual online shopping App, except for me to find
out some outstanding features.

Fortunately, I managed to get access to the app and explored it over the weekend. I will say, it’s nowhere near what I expected it to be at all.

The best way I can describe the app is this: Atonzo is an app where you can basically advertise anything at all like electronics, fashion, properties, even job vacancies. And now, I can see why the platform has over 100 verified sellers in less that 6 months, since they launched it.

They took the concept of B2C shopping platforms (i.e. jij, tonaton and olx) and brought it to a whole new level. Even though there’s no Ios app Yet, as far as I know, the android app was released september 2021.

Personally, I can see it a great alternative to tonaton, jiji and olx. I’m not sure if I can say the same for other platforms. But, one thing is for sure, it seems like a great way to market your business, which’ll lead to more revenue and customers.

Now some other interesting things i found about this app is it allows you to post unlimited ads for free with little or no restrictions. the app gives you a direct integrated whats app button so that you can easily reach product owners
directly without having to save their numbers first before whatsapping them.

So far so good i can say its one of the fastest and simplest online shopping site i have used so far. After all that i made contact with the site owner,  Daniel Agblo, in my conversation with him he told me atonzo is a step ahead with combating fraudulent activities engaging in recent time online shopping cases. Apparently the site verifies sellers in an unusual way, registered sellers are made to verify their identities on a video call and some other interesting ways, he mentioned.

He continued by saying ,online marketing companies like atonzo.com play a crucial role in helping businesses boost their branding and sales online. Nowadays without some online marketing, a business is not going to be achieving its full potential because so much is done online. You reach more customers, it reaches beyond local marketing to global proportions and it helps keep you relevant in your industry when there is likely a lot of competition.

How to Mail Order Cannabis at your Doorstep today

Published

on

Marijuana consumption is typically believed to be harmful to health around the world. However, the fact that it provides various health benefits might take you by shock. 

This article will discuss some of the medical benefits that marijuana has to offer. For further information, check out buy weed online from HighGlowCo. Canada

A Brief History of Marijuana

To get started, let’s travel back to 2737 BC. History says that the first direct reference was discovered in China. The Chinese emperor Shen Nung’s writings were the home to this reference. Cannabis was first employed for psychoactive compounds. 

Over the course, its use traveled from China to India then to North America. It eventually ended up in Europe in 500 AD. The United States Pharmacopeia recognized weed from 1850 to 1942. It was employed for treating various medical conditions like nausea, labor pain, pain, and rheumatism. 

THC, an active element of marijuana, was synthesized in 1966 to make it more medically acceptable. Finally, the US FDA approved it in 1985. 

The Medicine Institute of the United States of America discovered the therapeutic qualities of cannabis in some medical illnesses such as chemotherapy-induced nausea and AIDS-related wasting. It was found in a 1999 project funded by the US government.

Since 1999 various types of research have been conducted to prove that smoked weed has pain-relieving properties. The first-ever state to legalize marijuana in 1996 for the medical purpose was California. Nowadays, nearly all states have some form of medical cannabis laws. 

Marijuana’s Health Benefits

You will be surprised to learn why numerous studies were performed on marijuana. Here is a list of some medical benefits provided by marijuana. 

  • Delays and Stops Cancer Cell Proliferation

Cannabidiol has been discovered to have the potential to halt cancer by switching off a gene known as Id-1. CBD was first identified in 2007 as having the ability to suppress disease from developing.

Cancer cells were treated with cannabidiol by the researchers when they had a massive concentration of Id-1. The cells had lower Id-1 activity and were less vigorous instigators as a result of the study. However, it was discovered that cannabis effectively slows tumor progression in the nervous system, breast, and lungs.

  • Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention

The primary element in marijuana, THC, helps to reduce the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. THC reduces the creation of amyloid plaques by inhibiting the enzyme that produces them. These deposits damage brain cells, possibly resulting in Alzheimer’s disease.

  • Glaucoma Treatment

Glaucoma causes the pressure inside the eyeballs to rise, harming the optic nerve, leading to visual loss. Weed can also be employed to treat the disease. Marijuana, as per the National Eye Institute, decreases intraocular pressure, which can forestall blindness.

  • Aid for Crohn’s disease

Weed may aid in the treatment of Crohn’s disease. Crohn’s disease is an inflammatory gastrointestinal illness that causes symptoms such as discomfort, vomiting, diarrhea, and weight loss. Cannabis THC appears to aid in the management of microorganisms and gastrointestinal activity in the gut.

No matter your age, there is an online game for everyone

Published

on

My wife recently spoke to me about getting some video games for our three-year old son to play on his tablet. She had seen how the children of her colleagues play various games on their smartphones and tablets, so enthusiastically. Nathan is used to playing a lot of education videos and games on his tablets but my wife felt it was perhaps time to try something new like Candy Crush Saga or Temple Run although these games are recommended for age 10 plus.

 

I have also observed keenly, how video games excite children, so I agreed it would be a great option for Nathan as well. I still remember my earliest encounters with video games. I always wanted to have a video game for myself but my parents denied me during my primary school days. My father said it would distract me from my studies.  So, I usually played the likes of Super Mario Bros and Sonic the Hedgehog in school on my friends’ Nitendo Gameboy. The Iconic Tetris console was of course a favorite for me too, back in the day.

 

I remember when our neighbors got an Atari video game console; I was always in their living room at any opportunity I got to play Pacman and other games (I don’t even remember them now, but I think it included Contra). Then, finally my cousins visited Ghana from the USA with a Sega Genesis in the 1990s. This introduced me to games like Power Rangers, Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.

 

Then in the 2000’s I got my first computer so started installing programs that allowed me to play a variety of games on the desktop. When I got my first laptop in my university days, it was the era of the Internet and so I explored a number of games online. But after the university, I had not played a video or computer game until recently when I was looking for options for Nathan.

 

I came across plays.org, which brought back a lot of the good old memories I have with video games. It stocks a number of free browser-based online games. There are hundreds of free games across various genres including arcade classics, cartoon games, comic games, education, solitaire, sports games, pinball and more. All games are unblocked free HTML games which you can play directly in your web browser with no app downloads.

 

One thing I have noticed is how computer games have now turned into intriguing storylines, filled with extraordinary graphics, inspiring characters, and elements of realistic approach towards gameplay setting, and overall production design.  But when I really looked through the options onsite, I knew deep within me that the true essence of computer games has never changed.

 

I tried my hands on Break the Worm, which is a players’ favorite on the website. This is a classic ‘beat em up’ game where Finn is trapped in a nightmare on a quest through 3 worlds, to defeat a worm. He gains unique magical powers in each world. The game is easy to play and there is a full guide on how to play it even before you start, from how to hit and block punches to how to swerve the worms and other adversaries that come your way. My favorite is using the special moves to kill them faster or easier.

I am not one for reading guidelines so I went straight into it punching may way through it all, and discovering new tricks as I went along.  I kicked off with level one, ‘Ice Kingdom’. Here, the opposition was largely easy to defeat worms, and some robot-like machines. I fairly aced it in a matter of time, with no failure. Just as most combat games, I was able to pick up items that boosted my lost energy due to the hits I received, as well as extra lifelines along the line.

Level two, ‘Dad’s Dungeon’, was slightly more difficult but after some few failures I managed to ace it and moved on to the third level,  ‘Candy Kingdom’. As sweet as the name sounds, I haven’t been able to complete the level yet, although I tried over ten times on my first day.

I haven’t given up yet on ‘Candy Kingdom’ because thankfully, I get the option to continue from where I left off anytime I go on plays.org and choose Break the Worm.  So I will try it again when I have some more time on my hand.

According to details on the website, beating the game unlocks a second harder version of the game called Nightmare Mode. I will surely keep trying to see what the nightmare mode has waiting for me.
