JERUSALEM (April 15, 2013) – The Church of the Condemnation and Imposition of the Cross, one of the first stations along the Via Dolorosa.

Cardinal Seán and a group of 29 priests of the Archdiocese of Boston have traveled on an Easter pilgrimage to the Holy Land this week, and they’re bringing the readers of TheGoodCatholicLife.com blog along with them.

On the last day of their pilgrimage, the pilgrims began by walking the Via Dolorosa, the Way of the Cross, the path through the streets of Jerusalem that Jesus walked with the Cross to the Crucifixion. After celebrating Mass, they thanked those who had taken care of them on their pilgrimage and prepared for their flights home. As they waited, news of the bombings at the Boston Marathon back home reached the pilgrims and they united themselves in prayer with those who were hurt, their families, and the emergency workers who rushed to care for them.

All this week, our colleague George Martell is traveling with the pilgrimage, embedded with the Cardinal and his priests so we can bring you photos, blogs, videos, and audio reports from the Holy Land from the pilgrims at such places as the Basilica of the Annunciation, Mount Carmel, the Sea of Galilee, the Church of the Transfiguration, Qumran, the Mount of Olives, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the Upper Room, and more. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus with Cardinal Seán and the Archdiocese’s priests as an Easter retreat experience.

Please stay tuned to www.thegoodcatholiclife.com, as well as www.BostonCatholicPhotos.com and www.YouTube.com/BostonCatholic and our Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/bostoncatholic and Twitter account: www.twitter.com/bostoncatholic for the latest updates from the Holy Land.

We have air news around the world on airlines, aircrafts, technology, training and many others as follows for November 2010,

Partnership Remembered

LG Electronics South Africa and South African Air Forces Korean Veterans Association handed over a commemorative painting of the South Korean Ambassador to South Africa at a function held in Sand ton recently to mark the 60th anniversary of the start of the Korean conflict in 1950.

No.2 Squadron, SAAF.-The Flying Cheetahs â??supported the Korean War effort with a distinguished record of service in Korea. The Flying Cheetahs piloted P-51D Mustangs and F-86F Sabres during this time which are the subjects of the painting by Professor Derrick Dickens.

The Korean electronics giant, LG Electronics, donated money to the SAAF Korean Veterans Association for the painting of the two types of aircraft flown by South Africans in the liberation efforts in Korea between 1950 and 1953 .The painting was later handed over to the President of Korea, Lee Myung-bak by the Korean ambassador to South Africa, Hansoo Kim.

The pilots and men of the squadron were highly decorated heroes who received a total of 797 medals. These included two silver stars-the highest award to non-American nationals-three Legions of Merit for meritorious conduct,55 Distinguished Flying Crosses for heroism in aerial combat and 40 Bronze Stars for bravery.

No.2 Squadron flew a total of 12 067 sorties for a loss of 34 pilots and two other ranks. Its role was mainly flying ground attack and interdiction missions as one of the squadrons making up the United States Air Forces 18th Fighter Bomber Wing.

Thunder City to Cease Flying

Well-known Thunder City, which has the worlds largest civilian-owned fleet of ex-combat jets including three English Electric Lightings, three BAe Buccaneers, five Hawker Hunters, a Strike master and two retrofitted Puma helicopters, ceased flying operations shortly before the opening of the Africa Aerospace and Defense exhibition in late September at which it was widely expected to perform .

Making the announcement founder and CEO of Thunder City, Mike Beachy Head said:”Established under the name Thunder City 2000, the brand has gone on to become one of the most globally recognized as a home-grown South Africa one. Seen by an estimated 1, 5 billion TV viewers in countries across the planet, the iconic Thunder City, jets have inspired many to travel to Cape Town to experience the thrill and adrenaline-rush of flying in a supersonic ex-military jet.”

Beachy Head added that it had not been an easy decision to make, but that a number of factors such as the current slow economy, high cost of maintenance, difficulties with inconsistencies from the authorities and short to medium term prospects, had influenced the closures. He says that the 14 aircraft would be mothballed until a final decision is made as to the future of this valuable and historic collection.

During the past decade the Thunder City jets have flown more than 2000 sorties and generated revenue in excess of R100-million.

Longest Flight

Embraers ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet demonstrator aircraft recently made company history by completing the longest distance ever flown by an Embraer aircraft.

In its first nonstop flight from Mumbai, in India, to London’s Luton Airport, in England, the Lineage 1000 covered a ground distance of 4015 nautical miles in nine hours and i5 minutes. This distance is equivalent to 4400 nautical miles with no headwind.

Future Star Alliance Member

Star Alliance has announced that the Chief Executive Board has unanimously approved the application of Ethiopian Airlines to join Star Alliance.

This means that, in future, the alliance will have three main hubs in Africa-Addis Ababa, Cairo and Johannesburg-allowing for an ideal access to the continent from either North, Centre-East or South.

Ethiopian Airlines will add five new countries (Chad, Congo, Djibouti, Mali, and Niger) and 24 African destinations to the Star Alliance network, which will then encompass a total of 29 carriers, offering a choice of more than 21380 daily flights to 1196 destinations in 186 countries.

SAA Drops CT-DBN Route

SAA and Mango have concluded a code share agreement on the route between Cape Town and Durban.

This code share agreement has enabled SAA to withdraw its aircraft from the Durban-Cape Town route effective from the beginning of this month and still continue servicing this market with SAA customers flying on the Mango aircraft.

US/Angola Flights

Delta Air Lines add an eighth destination to its growing Africa route network in January, with the first-ever scheduled direct service between the United States and Luanda, Angola.

Flights will operate three times per week with 243-seat Airbus A330-200 aircraft flying between Deltas hub at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and Luanda with an intermediate stop in Dakar, Senegal.

Another B737 for Air Algerie

Boeing has delivered to Air Algerie its 11th 737-800 which operates a fleet composed primarily of B737s and some 767s.

Boeing is scheduled to deliver two additional 737-800s before the year-end, as well as four more in 2011.Air Algerie will be operating 17 B737-800s in 2011 for a total of 22 Next-Generation B737 airliners to complement its fleet.

Honeywell Operator Conference

Honeywell Aerospace in conjunction with two of its South African channel partners recently hosted an operator conference for operators, pilots and maintenance personnel.

The focus of the conference was to provide information and training on various Honeywell products and services.

The programme consisted of a review of Honeywell’s customer and products support services including; MySpace website update, services issues, entry-into service, training, maintenance service programmes and HAPP.

In Addition, brief updates and technical presentations on current RMUs and maintenance and operational issues were conducted, followed by an open-floor session.

A pilot training session was also held as part of the conference.

Terrafugia Preps for Production

The developers of the Transition folding-wing “road able” aircraft are preparing a 1765-square-metre area at its local facility for low-volume production to begin in late 2011.

The company is currently working on construction of two of its newly redesigned vechicles, which will serve as road test and light sport aircraft certification flight test vechicles, respectively .Terrafugia is currently targeting a low-to mid -$ 200000 purchase price for the Transition, and says construction of the two test prototypes will help finalize final pricing.

If all goes well, the company hopes to provide “fifty skilled manufacturing jobs” at its new facility by 2013 as it ramps up toward high-volume production .But those plans have not yet been finalized and will similarly be affected by the lessons of low-volume production, according to the company.

To date it has about 80 orders for the aircraft.Terrafugia is accepting reservations with a $ 10 000 refundable deposit.

Considering the turmoil faced by a number of universities in South Africa at the moment, it is very clear for all to see that the current university model has become completely unaffordable to the vast majority.

Sending a child to university costs somewhere in the region of R10 000.00 per month after Tax. In broad terms, fees are about R 5000.00 per month and then budget at least another R5 000.00 for transport, residence costs and living expenses. That relates to R120 000.00 per year after tax. Let’s put that into perspective. If a family earns R 1 million per year, less tax they have about R 600 000.00 left of which 20% must now go to university fees. That relates to a huge portion of total income and has to come out of the “disposable” part of income. Who has that much disposable income these days? It’s financially distressing to say the least. More than one child and that puts university at a new level of unaffordability, so I am honestly not surprised there is an uprising going on. What is surprising is that it didn’t happen earlier. Less than 1% of the population can afford it.

Why then to we continue with the same traditional business model for universities when in it is so unsustainable?

As technology continues to progress it is the youth that make the most use out of what the modern times has to offer. There are so many different advantages in technology that make things convenient for everyone and internet plays an important factor in this technology.

The internet serves as the gateway to information across borders, not limited to geographical scales or locations as anyone may have access to information on the internet, provided they have a working computer and internet access. With this the youth have developed immensely in the use of the internet, therefore relying on it for most of their needs. Though this advance has greatly benefited today’s generation it has also made them too dependent on a convenient lifestyle, therefore making their way of living more laid back.

The disadvantage of having so many things within arm’s reach is that the youth take for granted these advances and no longer strive to find the answers to their questions. Since everything turns out as so easy, when faced with simple issues and trials these are handles with great difficulty. Psychology views the internet usage and technological advances in society as factors that need to be handled in moderation. Too much dependence on these innovations lead to such a dependable lifestyle that for some it may seem like the end of the world without these.

The youth needs to be reminded of the world without these advances and therefore see things through the eyes of the past and how life was without all these technological devices and systems. The internet may serve as an advantage to communities everywhere around the globe yet it is essential to still be engaged in other hands on experiences that require effort, strive and determination in the quest for meaning and getting things done. It is up to the community and society to view these and integrate the balance in today’s youth.

Tanya Tucker
Event on 2017-03-28 20:00:00

In 1974, Rolling Stone ran a cover story on Tanya Tucker with the headline that said "You're Gonna Hear From Me." Truer words have never been spoken. For four decades, her sultry voice and vivacious stage presence has helped to make her one of the most admired and respected female vocalists in the Country Music genre.Part of that appeal lies in the fact that Tucker's resume contains some of the most groundbreaking songs of the format's history. Songs like Alex Harvey's "Delta Dawn," Dallas Frazier's "What's Your Mama's Name" and David Allan Coe's "Would You Lay With Me (In A Field Of Stone)" firmly established Tanya Tucker as an artist from whom you could always expect the unexpected. Her early hits also contained some kick-up-your-heels moments, like "Texas (When I Die)," "San Antonio Stroll," and "Here's Some Love."In the 1980s, Tucker's star continued to shine as she moved over to Capitol Records in the middle part of the decade. It was there that she released some of the most potent material of her illustrious career, such as "One Love At A Time," "Just Another Love," and "Strong Enough To Bend."The next decade showed no let down in her momentum, as she hit with songs that continued to touch her fan base like "Two Sparrows In A Hurricane," "Soon," and "Little Things."However, Tanya Tucker represents much more than just a collection of hit songs not that her resume isn't impressive. But, what makes the singer unforgettable is her stage show. On one side of the coin, she can show her vulnerable side through the emotional lyrics of many of her heartbreaking ballads. But, there's that other side of Tucker which she showcases her flirtatious and sensual side. Both of these elements have kept Tucker a crowd favorite for many years and are among the reasons that her fans are grateful that she is returning to the road after an absence of a few years.And, the best is yet to come for this future Country Music Hall of Fame member. With a new album forthcoming, the power house vocalist is set to remind listeners just why artists such as Miranda Lambert and Gretchen Wilson consider her to be one of their biggest influences. She's lived a life full of love and heartbreak, and bounced back no matter the odds. In the crazy world of the music business, Tanya Tucker defines the word "legend," but also "survivor."

When you’re involved with purchasing a gas station or a convenience store, you’re craving information, and you’ve got lots of questions to ask. When you take over ownership, you want to be confident that the business will be making a good profit from the very first day. Keep in mind though, it’s never a good idea to settle for that scenario – here are six proven strategies to turn your new place of business into a spinning money machine, fast.

Tip one: be aggressive out of the gate and apply pressure point marketing. When a business is under new management it is a great time to snag new customers and to make sure that your station and store become the chosen location for a host of new people. Think of some new ideas – for example, some large signs announcing a price reduction for a limited time, or a free cup of coffee served at the pumps during the first week. Establish your brand with uniformed and energetic employees giving out coupons or other incentives by every pump. Put the previous owner to shame after just one week of aggressive selling.

Tip two: go out and look for new clients by co-promoting with other merchants in your area. Tour the locality and see where people are shopping. For example, make a deal with the supermarket manager to distribute their coupons if they will reciprocate. Car washers or tire vendors are great places to co-promote. Be creative!

Tip three: start talking with your vendors. Now is the time as a new owner to negotiate aggressively as you have the advantage. Everything in your store should be renegotiated, from coffee to snacks to magazines. Open the playing field by inviting other vendors to tender. This will focus the attention of the previous vendors and price breaks will follow. Make sure that you establish return privileges. In that way you can sell additional products in your store, safe in the knowledge that if they do not sell you simply return them and don’t lose a cent.

Tip four: get your family involved. If they’ll help out during the first few crucial months of operation, you might be able to get a better handle on upcoming payroll expenses. Furthermore, trained family members would be available to step in during times of vacation or sickness, etc.

Tip five: review the records and highlight any under-performing products. You might discover that some items outsell others by 2 to 1, or more. Swap out slow selling items with new products and displays during your first few months to test the market. Whilst some items may be slow sellers, remember that you should not gamble too much with your products and displays as you are trying to promote a “convenience” store and people do look for all kinds of odds and ends. Whilst some items simply do not sell enough they need to be there from an overall perspective. Always test to see what sells well.

Tip six: implement proven strategies to help boost sales. For instance, place a coupon display right next to the pumps or position hot selling products in readily accessible locations, such as right next to the front doors. Think of what is popular on a seasonal basis – like cooling drinks, which should be placed right inside the front door. Create strategies for some of your top selling products and reap dividends in your balance sheet.
