Now Open, Anguilla’s Extraordinary Kishti on Meads


Anguilla (PRWEB) June 03, 2015

Meads Bay, Anguilla’s gorgeous, mile-long beach, is the venue of choice for the island’s foodies, with an array of beach bars and upscale restaurants anchored by two 5-star resorts with their own enticing options for dining.

Now, with the June 1 opening of Kishti on Meads, the island’s coolest beach can also boast a much-anticipated, luxury villa enclave that reinvents excitement on Anguilla.

The twin newcomers, designed by Toronto architect Taylor Smyth, feature six bedrooms each, two gardens (rooftop and patio), designer kitchens, home cinemas, home offices and gyms. Above all, each villa has a full contingent of non-intrusive but ever-attentive staff to ensure the supremely pampering “Kishti Experience.”

As Sue Ricketts, a director of RickettsLuxury Properties, the exclusive representative for the Kishti Villa Collection, sees it: “Having spent more than 30 years training, perfecting and managing staff for world-class hotels, my husband Robin and I know top-flight service when we see it – and the Kishti villas have it in abundance. It’s the little things, like moving tanning loungers around throughout the day to catch the perfect angle to the sun, like offering meals in multiple locations even full-course dinners beneath an awning set up on the white sands.”

Kishti, by the way, is an Urdu word for boat or canoe so the theme flowing through the Cecconi Simone-designed interiors is the ever-present sea. In the grand salon, double-height windows add drama to the ever-changing views of the sea, sky and sunsets; museum-caliber artworks and objets d’art blend the sophistication of Eastern and Western cultures with the barefoot tranquility of the Caribbean. Each villa offers an unusually refined, distinctive environment for one extended family or a group of friends but Kishti at Meads may also be rented as a single self-contained enclave for groups up to twenty-four.

“For sure, the Kishti Experience raises the bar for style and sophistication in Caribbean vacations,” says Robin Ricketts. “The two villas at Kishti on Meads combine with Kishti at BlackGarden (a year-old, 5-bedroom villa farther down the coast) that make up the new Kishti Villa Collection, which, we are proud to repeat, is represented exclusively by RickettsLuxury Properties.”

Summer rates for Kishti on Meads begin at $ 3,500 (3 bedrooms) to $ 5,600 (6 bedrooms), fully staffed (manager, assistant manager, chef, butler, housekeepers, gardener, maintenance, security, 24/7 concierge services); taxes and service charge are extra. Although guests have the services of a private chef food is charged separately so that they can enjoy some of their meals at the restaurants along the beach, all within easy strolling distance of the Kishti sundecks. Complimentary leisure gear includes stand-up paddleboards, kayaks, snorkeling equipment and private beach volleyball. Next winter’s rates will range from $ 5,000 to $ 8,000 per night, fully staffed.

Breaking News: Special introductory Rates. For full details of special offers valid through November 15, 2015, contact Sue Ricketts at 264-497-6049 or 239-344-7810. For detailed descriptions of the villas and their facilities (together with additional photographs) log on to http://www.rickettsluxury.com

New Name, Old Hands

RickettsLuxury Properties is the rebranded name for Anguilla Luxury Villa Collection, which was founded 30 years ago by long-time island residents and “belongers” Robin and Sue Ricketts, who helped create and establish two of Anguilla’s iconic resorts, Malliouhana and Cap Juluca. As “old hands” on Anguilla, they have become the recognized authority on rental villas and real estate on the island, a fact which was recognized by Conde Nast Traveler when it named Sue to their list of World’s Top Villa Specialists. RickettsLuxury Properties now offers discerning visitors access to a large portfolio of properties, including some of the most exclusive rental villas and estates on Anguilla, the neighboring islands and around the world.

Top Ten Coolest Auto Accessories: From the JC Whitney Vault – Circa 50s, 60s, 70s


LASALLE, Ill. (PRWEB) April 29, 2015

JC Whitney, the company with one of the most comprehensive selections of auto parts and accessories in the world, has built its business over the past 100 years by offering “everything automotive” to DIYers, enthusiasts and folks just looking to personalize their rides with a little flair. And, over the years, the company has learned volumes about what moves hobbyists and DIYers, and the tastes and preferences of the car culture. Today, the company is sharing the ‘Top Ten’ of what it considers to be some of the coolest auto accessories ever offered, most from the ‘50s ‘60s, and ‘70s.

“Cars and car culture are the epitome of cool – especially if you customize your own ride,” said JC Whitney President Shane Evangelist. “One of the many rich benefits of being a part of the automotive scene for 100 years is that we’ve gained a historical perspective on ‘cool’. Going through the archives made us ask: ‘what is cool, anyway?’ We think, as this top ten list demonstrates, it’s all about performance, a personal touch and the latest technology.”

The JC Whitney staff combed through past catalogs and reached out to auto enthusiasts to come up with ten of the coolest car gadgets, gizmos and performance accessories…ever:

1.    Engine Adapter Housing

Say you’re a hot rod swapper, and you love Buick engines from the late 1950s. Sadly, though, you have a Ford transmission. What to do? Adapt it! Long before precision CNC machining was available, JC Whitney made it cheap and easy to combine different manufacturer engines and transmissions, via a comprehensive assortment of swap kits, ready to bolt together right out of the box. Was available in the 1957 catalog starting at $ 38.50.

2.    Judson Supercharger Kits

As imports became more common, JC Whitney knew that American drivers craved more power and offered the perfect solution for Austin-Healey, MG, Triumph and VW owners. Packing up to 50 percent more power and promising easy bolt-on installation, the Judson blowers were the answer for more punch. Was available in the 1968 catalog, prices ranged from $ 139.50 to $ 219.95.

3.    Chrome Plated Distributor Cap

Like a disco ball for your engine compartment! Touted as molded of Bakelite and finished with top quality chrome, JC Whitney offered an easy way to bling up your engine compartment. How we yearn for the simpler days, when you could see distributors and plug wires under the hood. Was available in the 1960 catalog, prices ranged from $ 2.95 to $ 6.50.

4.    Lowering Kits

Who doesn’t think lowered cars look cool? It’s a look that will never go out of style, and JC Whitney knew it, so they offered the simple way to lower the front or rear of any car on coil springs without cutting, drilling or welding. Go lowrider, then change your mind and go highboy with these adjustable units. Was available in the 1959 catalog priced at $ 4.95 a pair.

5.    Mix and Match Manifolds and Carburetors

JC Whitney offered the largest assortment of high performance intake components on the planet, so you could mix your fuel and air virtually any way you desired. Want dual or triple carbs? How about the sweet six carb log set up for your Dodge, Chrysler, DeSoto, Lincoln, Mercury, Olds or Plymouth? No problem! Feeling like a supercharger on your Olds V8? JC Whitney had that manifold ready to ship to your door. Was available in the 1952 catalog, prices ranged from $ 12.95 to $ 74.95 each.

6.    Car Club Jackets

Whether you counted two or 200 members, imagine hanging out at the local stomping ground with your car club…wearing the same cool club jackets with name, embroidered emblem and colors. Perfect for hot rodders, sports cars, boaters, racers and even, gasp, chess clubs? JC Whitney offered multiple options in lettering style, emblem design, colors and sizes. Go CamBusters! Was available in the 1958 catalog starting at $ 10.95 and up.

7.    Tu-Tone Muffler, with Finger Tip Variable Sound Control

Normally you had to choose one exhaust tone, loud or soft. Cops and neighbors don’t like loud and soft is boring. Fortunately, JC Whitney let you adjust the tone of your exhaust from the dash. Tu-Tone could be quiet in the city and uncorked in the country, and boosted mileage, horsepower, engine efficiency and reduced carbon formation. Was available in the 1953 catalog priced at $ 14.95.

8.    Horns, Horns and More Horns

Ah-ooo-gah! What better way to personalize your vehicle than with its own unique sound, right? JC Whitney offered horns to fit every automotive style and personal taste. Air horns, musical horns, train horns and more. Louder and much cooler than stock, you could even make your ride whinny, roar or trumpet like a brass band. Was available in the 1971 catalog, prices ranged from $ 3.98 to $ 41.98.

9.    Imported Marchal Driving Lamp

Nothing beats surprising people with a concentrated long beam…right? These beauties boasted a “scientific design that permits a stronger beam with less electrical consumption than the ordinary sealed beam.” These lights were triple chrome-plated and brought style and function to any car they were added to. Was available in the 1950 catalog priced at $ 14.95 each.

10.    Limited-Slip Differential

When you are doing a burnout how many stripes do you want to leave? JC Whitney knew the answer was always two, and launched the careers of wannabe drag and rally racers across the country. And with a limited-slip in your pumpkin, you could accelerate more efficiently, get out of corners faster and avoid getting stuck in snow or mud. Was available in the 1959 catalog, prices ranged from $ 73.50 to $ 84.95.

New Off-Site Experiences Available For Groups at DoubleTree by Hilton Williamsburg Hotel

Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) April 18, 2015

Associations meeting in Historic Williamsburg can now enhance their gatherings by choosing from one of several off-site group experiences, from informative, guided tours of Jamestown Settlement to an amazing sailing charter onboard a historic Yorktown Schooner.

Williamsburg’s off-site experiences are ideal for presenting the world’s largest outdoor living museum where 18th century buildings, homes and taverns allow individuals to step back into time when America was founded.

Experiences include “Shades of Gray and Blue,” a Civil War tour; “Great Hopes – An African American Journey,” and “Sticks & Stones, Buried Bones,” an archaeology and regional history tour. Groups also can enjoy “Ships ‘N Shores,” a regional nautical tour; “Mischief & Mistletoe,” a holiday tour; and “Bulbs, Blooms & Blossoms” exploring the amazing gardens of the historic area.

These and other suggested group itineraries can be found under the Plan Your Group Tour tab at http://www.VisitWilliamsburg.com.

Ready for Rand? The Ready for Rand PAC is announcing its launch

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 06, 2015

This game in which one votes for a red president or a blue is like a football game where everyone gets excited about their team, the donkeys or the elephants, for just as long as the game is on, but knows very well that the outcome of the game will change nothing important at all.

Younger voters in particular have had enough of the divisive culture wars. They don’t fit into the neat Left/Right boxes that enable someone to predict their views on taxation based on their position on abortion, or their opinion on gay marriage based on whether they own a gun.

These younger voters are not simply “Liberals” or “Conservatives.” Most young voters don’t resonate with any of these simplistic labels, but know themselves to be socially accepting on the one hand, and economically responsible on the other. Ideally, they would also like their representatives, and especially their president, to be, in that respect at least, the same.

Unmoved by tired political tribalism, Millennials, like everyone else, care deeply about what matters. They care very much about preserving the values on which this nation was founded. They care about the mass invasions of their privacy by their government; they care that their country is the incarceration capital of the world, locking up mostly non-violent “offenders”; they care that government agencies can strip their hard-earned assets without a guilty verdict; they care that their police forces are militarized; they care that they are staring at their huge student debts and they care that the unintended consequences of policy after policy work against the good intentions that are used to justify the same.

In short, many young voters today are true Independents with a cause.

For all of these reasons, and because there is no such thing as a politician who is also a panacea, Ready For Rand PAC is excited to announce its launch.

With Rand Paul’s announcement of a presidential bid, one can clearly see the best means today to begin transforming the political establishment from the inside.

Ready for Rand PAC will be focusing on motivating Millennials by the prospect of a new non-dogmatic approach to politics that places people before ideology and principles before parties. The PAC supports Rand Paul as the best candidate in the main parties for President of the United States.

Have Fun With Chess – Throw a Chess Party!

I confess, I’m not much of a party animal. I suppose in general that people suppose that persons who are interested in chess aren’t really so much interested in parties. However, such a supposition is not only somewhat prejudiced, it is also downright wrong!

Ever heard of a chess party? The truth is that until recently, neither did I – but they do exist – and not in tiny numbers either.

One day recently, just for fun, I decided to combine the two words “chess” and “party” and to toss them into my browser just to sit back and watch the computer cry foul. But, to my surprise – the computer was two full steps ahead of me – turning up a huge heap of indexes and beating me at my own game.

Chess parties aren’t a new fad. They’ve been around for a long time, and are usually offered as part of a club or chess themed entertainment package. But, there are an equal number of private chess parties – where private folk like you and me buy up a lake of beer and invite friends over to play chess. Now THAT’s entertainment!

Okay, maybe chess parties is not for every chess enthusiast – but you’ve got to admit that it does the heart good to know that people out there are actually having fun playing our favorite game. Usually, the whole competition thing requires the chess aficionado to be all too serious. And – it is inexpensive fun too.

If you want to throw your own chess party, all you’ll need is some chess boards and pieces, some tables, some chairs and – of course – plenty of drink. The theme of the party is up to you. It will add spice to the party, for example, to have the players to compete for a prize. Something in keeping with the theme of chess – of course.

After poking around on the Internet, I discovered these things are everywhere. YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, you name it. Why some folks even throw such events as a birthday party. Go figure.

For some reason – that even I can’t explain – this excites me – enough to write this article on the subject. Usually I am always extolling the benefits of training – but here is a chance to point out that chess can be fun, too!

Chess has to be as much about fun as it is about brains. This seems like a truly novel approach to mixing your business with your pleasure. So, the next time you are in a partying mood – you might consider a chess party. You’ll find videos, articles and whatever else you need on the net to help you to plan one.

You chess will show improvement – after you sober up – and if not – think of the years of fun you’ll have trying to push your chess rating into the zone.

Mason is a professional Engineer who administrates the onsite chess training gymnasium at http://www.chessmemoryaids.com. The site provides training tools, exercises and advice for chess players who wish to improve their chess expertise by training their mind – as opposed to by studying chess books alone. The site is also a one-stop-shop from which other chess and self-help resources can be reached.

Nigeria 4 – 1 Burkina Faso….

Eagles demolish Burkina 4-1

The African champions, Super Eagles of Nigeria, confirmed their supremacy over Stallions of Burkina Faso in Tuesday’s international friendly played in Kaduna. The match is somewhat a replay of the finals of the African Cup of Nations involving the two teams earlier in the year in South Africa. The Super Eagles proved that their victory over Burkina Faso in the Africa Cup of Nations played earlier this year was no fluke as they silenced the Stallions 4-1 in an international friendly played at the Ahmadu Bello Stadium on Tuesday.
A first half brace from Brown Ideye plus second half goals from Shola Ameobi and Emmanuel Emenike were all the reigning African champions needed to send their boastful west African neigbours back home empty-handed. Saidou Simpore scored a consolatory goal for the visitors late in the second half.

Lampard to win 100 England caps….

England midfielder Frank Lampard

England boss Roy Hodgson has confirmed Frank Lampard will earn his 100th cap against Ukraine on Tuesday. The Chelsea midfielder, 35, will become only the eighth Three Lions player to reach the milestone, joining team-mates Steven Gerrard and Ashley Cole. Lampard made his England debut in October 1999 under previous boss Kevin Keegan in a 2-1 friendly win over Belgium at Sunderland’s Stadium of Light. Since then he has gone on to score 29 times for his country and has captained them five times.

Eto to quit Lions….

Chelsea new boy Samuel Eto’o will be able to devote more time to helping the club win trophies after announcing he is to retire from international football. The 32-year-old striker said he would quit the Cameroon national team for ‘family reasons’ after a reported row with coach Volker Finke over team selection, despite helping his side to reach the final round of African qualification for the World Cup in Brazil. Eto’o, who also threatened to retire from international football in September 2012 before changing his mind, told team-mates in the dressing room after Sunday’s 1-0 home win over Libya he was ending his 16-year career with the Indomitable Lions, according to French newspaper L’Equipe. His announcement follows a week of tension in the team camp after Eto’o demanded the selection of goalkeeper Carlos Kameni and striker Achille Webo against Libya, with German Finke refusing to agree. Eto’o, four times African Footballer of the Year, initially suggested he was not fit to play because of a groin injury but did take part in the match and even wore the captain’s armband before being replaced on the hour mark. Cameroon now face a two-legged playoff in October and November to qualify for Brazil. Eto’o, who signed for Chelsea from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala last month, has scored 56 goals in 114 appearances for Cameroon and appeared at three World Cup finals in 1998, 2002 and 2010.

Serena Williams wins US Open….

World number one Serena Williams won her fifth US Open title in a thrilling final against Victoria Azarenka at Flushing Meadows. The American, 31, overcame a determined opponent and a testing wind to win 7-5 6-7 (6-8) 6-1 and repeat last year’s final victory against the Belarusian. Williams has now won 17 Grand Slam singles titles, moving her to within one of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, and seven short of Margaret Court’s record total of 24. But after letting a double-break lead slip in the second set, and twice failing to serve out the match, Williams was made to dig as deep as in any of her 16 previous major wins. “Vika’s such a great opponent, such a great fighter and that’s why she’s been able to win multiple Grand Slams,” Williams said of Azarenka after their contest. “That’s why it was never over until match point.” Azarenka, 24, had beaten Williams twice this year, the last time in Cincinnati on the eve of the US Open, and clearly believed she could defeat the American on a bigger stage.

Nadal wins French Open….

Rafael Nadal poses with the trophy

Rafael Nadal beat fellow Spaniard David Ferrer and win a record eighth French Open title. Nadal, 27, came through 6-3 6-2 6-3 to reaffirm his dominance on clay, and further elevate himself among the greats of the sport. “I’m very happy, very emotional,” he said. “It’s a very important victory for me.” However, the final was interrupted by a brief protest high in the stands during the second set that was quickly followed by an intruder leaping onto the court while brandishing a flare. Security guards managed to bundle the man to the ground as he approached Nadal, and the player even took care to shake an official’s hand before returning to the action. “Just can I say thank you very much to all the security guys,” he said afterwards. “They did just amazing work. “They were very quick, and they were very courageous about what they did in the first moment.”

Serena Williams wins 2013 Women’s French Open title….

Serena Williams

World number one Serena Williams today won a second French Open title 11 years after her first with a convincing win over defending champion Maria Sharapova. The American, 31, was pushed at times but led throughout, winning 6-4 6-4 in one hour and 46 minutes. Williams has now won 16 Grand Slam singles titles, moving her to within two of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert, who have 18 each. And with an unbeaten run that now stands at 31 matches, she will be strongly favoured to add to that tally at Wimbledon next month. Sharapova had come into Saturday’s final promising to “try something different” after failing to beat Williams in their last 12 matches, stretching back to 2004.
