Important Consumer Information and Disclosures

For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, choose a campus below to download.

  • For information on graduation rates, the median debt of students who complete this program and more, please view the Computer Information Science – Tampa .
  • Tampa Completion rates for this program*:
    • No students enrolled part-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2009 – June 30, 2010, or the program was not offered during this period.
    • No students enrolled full-time in the enrollment cohort July 1, 2012 – June 30, 2013, or the program was not offered during this period.

* For information regarding assumptions made in establishing these completion rates, click here

The completion rate data presented here is calculated using the following assumptions:

  1. The Enrollment Cohort includes all students who started in a program for the first time during the enrollment cohort (financial aid award year, FA AY ). Re-entries are not considered a start in the enrollment cohort (FA AY) if they attended the program in a previous enrollment cohort (FA AY), regardless of how long it has been since their prior attendance.
  2. The enrollment cohort excludes any students that died, if applicable. The enrollment cohort does not exclude permanently disabled students who were unable to continue on at least a half-time basis.
  3. Students are considered completers if they became a graduate in the program. Students with any status other than graduate are considered non-completers.
  4. These calculations use the federal financial aid definition of full-time, and less than full time (number of credits) to determine the cohort the student s completion information will be calculated in. The number of credits the student is enrolled in on the student s first day of attendance is used to determine the student s status. As such, students are considered full-time if they are taking 12 credits or more, and considered less than full time if they are taking less than 12 credits. All modular students are considered full time.
  5. The following calculations are used to display completion information based on the students FT or less than FT status:
    1. (# of full time students in enrollment cohort ( EC ) who completed within 100% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
    2. (# of full time students in EC who completed within 150% program length) / (# of full-time students in EC)
    3. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 200% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
    4. (# of less-than-full-time students in EC who completed within 300% program length) / (# of less-than-full-time students in EC)
  6. These disclosures reflect completion percentages for the enrollment cohort (by financial aid award year, July 1- June 30) that will provide the most recent group of completers for the longer of the two completion percentages. Specifically, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the full-time students to have had enough time to complete 150% of their program length; and, we select the most recent enrollment cohort (FA AY) for the less than full-time students to have had time to complete 300% of their program length. As such, enrollment cohorts may vary dependent on program length.

Czech Republic Travel Guide

A historic jewel at the heart of Europe. the Czech Republic packs a sizeable punch for such a small country; from majestic castles to medieval towns, elegant spa resorts to scenic national parks, it has much to offer international visitors. It is also, lest we forget, the birthplace of the world s finest beer.

At the heart of it all is the culture-crammed capital, Prague. Dubbed the city of a thousand spires, it comprises beautiful churches, cobbled lanes and medieval bridges, all watched over by a fairytale castle. Add to that a mix of ancient monuments, fine dining, old breweries, bustling markets and lively jazz clubs and there really is never a dull moment.

Yet those who fail to venture beyond the city boundaries are truly missing out. Located just a short drive from the capital are some extraordinary attractions; the hot springs of Karlovy Vary; the giant gothic castle of Karl tejn; the church made of human bones in Kutn Hora; and the city of Plzeň, where pilsner beer was born.

Formerly part of Czechoslovakia, since the Velvet Divorce of 1993 when Slovakia and the Czech Republic parted company the latter has emerged the more popular with tourists. And to understand its appeal one must consider its assets; the stunning wine-growing region of Monrovia, home to rolling hills, traditional food and the spirited cities of Brno and Olomouc; the snow-capped mountains of Krkono e; the otherworldly rock formations of Česk R j; the wild forests of umava National Park; and the historic town of Česk Krumlov, a fully deserving UNESCO World Heritage Site.

And yet, for all this, the Czech Republic is far more than the sum of its sights. This is a nation of proud, forthright and friendly people, eager to take a significant role on the European stage. It may only be a small country and a relatively new one but the Czech Republic leaves a big impression.

Travel Advice

Last updated: 30 November 2015

The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

Crime

Prague city police advises visitors to Prague of the following:

  • always exchange currency at a currency exchange office or bank, never on the street as this money is often counterfeit
  • avoid contact with women and men acting as street prostitutes as they are often pickpockets
  • take care when using cash machines
  • don t buy drugs on the street as sale and distribution is illegal and the drugs are often hazardous counterfeits
  • be aware of consumption charges in night clubs; they are often high. Be careful with consumption cards, which carry high financial penalties if they are lost before the bill is paid

Never leave drinks or food unattended, or accept drinks from strangers. There have been a small number of incidents involving drinks being spiked and visitors having their valuables stolen while intoxicated.

Petty theft is a problem, especially in major tourist areas in Prague. Pickpocketing is common at the main railway station and on public transport, particularly the routes to and from Prague Castle and other major tourist sites, and on the buses to/from the airport. Try to avoid busy carriages on the metro and trams, which are favoured by pickpockets. There is also a risk of pick-pocketing on flights from the UK. It is best to keep your passport and valuables with you before and during your flight.

Make sure you know where your belongings are at all times, particularly while at restaurants, bars and nightclubs. Use a cloakroom if available. There have been several cases of theft from hotel rooms and even safes.

Beware of bogus plain-clothes policemen, who may ask to see your foreign currency and passport. If approached, don t show your money, but offer instead to go with them to the nearest police station. If you suspect that you are dealing with a bogus police officer, you can call 158 or 112 to check their identity. No police officer in the Czech Republic has the right to check your money or its authenticity.

Report any thefts in person to the Czech police within 24 hours and get a police report crime number. Police Station in Prague:

Jungmanovo namesti 9,

Prague 1,

(nearest metro stop is Mustek).

This police station is open 24 hours. English translators are provided. If you lose your passport you will need to obtain a police report before a replacement can be issued.

It is possible to obtain a reference number for a crime related incident by reporting it to a police station in the UK, but it is much better to report the crime in the Czech Republic. There is a police station at the airport where you can get a police report.

If your passport is stolen you will need to obtain a police report before a replacement can be issued.

Local travel

If you are travelling in a group keep a careful note of your hotel telephone number and address in case you are separated from the rest of your party. Leave contact details of your travelling companions with a friend or relative at home who you can contact if you get separated from your group.

If you travel on public transport you must buy a ticket and validate it before you travel. You will be fined on the spot if you are travelling with a ticket that has not been validated. The fine, usually 800 crowns (around 22.00), is paid directly to the ticket inspector. You should get a receipt. If you can t pay the fine you may be arrested. You can buy tickets at most large hotels, metro stations and at many newspaper stands ( Trafika ) and convenience stores.

Every year there are accidents involving trams. Take extra care when near tram tracks and make sure you look both ways. Trams can t stop quickly.

Seasonal flooding (normally during the Spring) occurs occasionally. Check the Ministry of Agriculture website for more information. By selecting Enter you will see a map of the country which showing any current flood warnings.

Taxis

It is safer to use a major taxi company like Tick Tack tel: 14 144 or AAA tel: 233 113 311. If you do pick up a taxi in the street, always check the fare per km before getting in. Some taxis can charge highly inflated prices. The rates should be clearly marked on the side of the taxi.

Road travel

You can drive using a UK Driving licence.

In 2013 there were 650 road deaths in Czech Republic (source: Department for Transport ). This equates to 6.2 road deaths per 100,000 of population and compares to the UK average of 2.8 road deaths per 100,000 of population in 2013.

If you are planning to drive to the Czech Republic, you may like to consult a local motoring hotline, available in Czech and English (telephone: 00 420 1230).

To drive on motorways you will need to buy a special vignette (sticker) from a Post Office, petrol station, bureau de change or at the border. Failure to display a valid vignette can result in a fine.

There is a zero-tolerance policy for driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs.

You must have your headlights on dipped beam when driving anywhere in the Czech Republic, even during the hours of daylight.

All private cars, including those of foreign visitors, must carry the following items by law:

– fluorescent green high visibility safety jacket

– first aid kit, warning triangle

– complete set of spare bulbs

– complete set of electric fuses

– jack

– spanner and

Developing a Roadmap for an Enterprise Information Management Program

How does your organization manage its most valuable resource, information?

Many organizations have begun to realize that the data and information they create every day is a valuable enterprise asset. It is difficult to imagine any enterprise achieving its goals without pertinent information. Those with accessible and higher quality information will make more informed and more effective business decisions. This is as true for all organizations since all enterprises need quality information to guide their decision-making and to provide optimum service to their customers. For organizations whose primary asset is information, this need is even more critical.

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) is the set of business processes, disciplines and practices used to manage the information created from an organization s data as an enterprise asset. EIM functions ensure that high quality information is available, protected, controlled and effectively leveraged to meet the knowledge needs of all enterprise stakeholders, in support of the enterprise mission.

Full organizational commitment to managing information as an enterprise asset requires the establishment of enterprise policies and the development of a support environment shared by the organization. That is what an EIM program provides.

Even for organizations that have identified the need to manage information as an enterprise asset, determining what that really means and how to get started can be very difficult. The discipline of EIM is not as mature as some other disciplines that have evolved over time to manage the enterprise assets of money and people. The management of information is an enterprise effort, and cannot be left to each department or business unit without impacting the overall effectiveness and business value EIM can provide.

It is critical to note that EIM is not a single technology or component but a framework of disciplines for information management across the enterprise (see figure 1). It is important to have this framework to guide the development and implementation of an EIM program. The scope, extent and scale of the EIM components vary across organizations due to the varying requirements, size, means and experience of the organizations. While all these components must be considered when developing an EIM program, not all will require the same degree of emphasis for every organization. The following EIM framework represents a very effective way to structure and manage an EIM program.

Enterprise information

Figure1 Framework for Enterprise Information Management

The functions or components of an EIM framework are:

Once these framework components are in place, the keys to an effective EIM program include business participation, business impact, technologies and education. Real and effective business participation means executives and key managers must not only be empowered with ownership, but with measurable accountability. Those charged with participating, due to their strong knowledge and expertise of the business must also define the procedures, polices, data concepts and requirements for the EIM program. The amount of business impact the EIM program can have on the enterprise varies from one organization to the next depending on their level of maturity. It is imperative that organizations define the business impact and measurement criteria from the beginning of the EIM program in order to quantify the initiative value to the organization.

Organizations need to take an active and planned approach to managing their information to obtain the maximum business value and impact to succeed in today s business environment. An Enterprise Information Management initiative provides the framework and roadmap for an organization to achieve real information knowledge and true business impact.

LGBTI Travel Information #travelling #australia

LGBTI Travel Information

By fighting for the rights of so many others, we realize that “gay rights are human rights, and human rights are gay rights.” Secretary Clinton – December 6, 2011 Attitudes and tolerance toward lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) persons vary from country to country, just as they vary among U.S. cities and states. Most LGBTI travelers encounter no problems while overseas, but it helps to be prepared and research your destination before you go. There are a number of countries that provide legal protections to those who are LGBTI. Unfortunately, there are others that do not, and a significant number that even criminalize consensual same-sex sexual relations. Persons convicted in these countries could be sentenced to prison, and/or be punished by fines, deportation, flogging, or even sentenced to death. Before choosing one’s international destination, LGBTI travelers should carefully consider the laws and biases of their international destination and decide how open one can be regarding one’s sexual orientation or gender identity. Personal judgment and knowledge of local laws and customs before one goes will help ensure your safety. Consult our Country Specific Information and links available throughout this document for other helpful resources.

Before You Travel

Where can I find this information?

  • Invest in a good current guide book – many specialize in advice to LGBTI travelers
  • The Internet and the press that specializes in LGBTI issues are also good resources
  • Your travel agent or tour operator might have information about LGBTI issues, particularly in the more popular holiday destinations
  • Local LGBTI groups are an excellent source of information about local laws and attitudes
  • Sign up for the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program

Does the U.S. Department of State publish information about harassment or arrests of LGBTI travelers or residents?

The Special Circumstances sections of some Country Specific Information documents, which are available on the Bureau of Consular Affairs website. contain information about attitudes, harassment, or arrests relating to LGBTI travelers. The annual Human Rights Report that the State Department publishes also includes a section specifically regarding sexual orientation and gender identity in each country.

What documents should LGBTI individuals or families carry when traveling abroad?

The Department of State recommends that individuals carry legal/health documents that facilitate authorization for medical treatment or access in the event of a medical emergency while abroad. Parents should consider carrying documents regarding parentage and/or custody for accompanying minor children. Carry contact information for people in the United States, both legal and familial, and share your travel itinerary with someone in the United States. Program the contact information for the U.S. embassy or consulate in the countries you’re visiting into your phone. Check with that country’s embassy or consulate in the United States to learn about any special documentation requirements.

How do I document a change of name through marriage?

What is the policy of the U.S. Department of State regarding the passport identity of transgender travelers?

How can I find HIV entry requirements of foreign countries?

The Department of State publishes Country Specific Information for every country on the Bureau of Consular Affairs’ website. We include HIV/AIDS entry restrictions, or lack of restrictions, in the section entitled Entry/Exit Requirements for U.S. Citizens. In some instances, the Country Specific Information refers travelers to that country’s embassy or consulate for additional information.

What is the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program?

The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service provided by the U.S. government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country. STEP allows you to enter information about your upcoming trip abroad so that the Department of State can provide you with current Travel Warnings, Alerts, and Country Specific Information. STEP also allows U.S. citizens abroad to get emergency and security messages from the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate. Most importantly, the embassy or consulate will be able to locate and assist you in an emergency. When enrolling in STEP, be sure to include an email address or phone number where you can be reached while traveling.

While You’re There

What are some issues to be aware of while traveling abroad?

  • Be a responsible tourist. Avoid potentially risky situations, and don’t do anything that you wouldn’t do at home!
  • Remember that you are subject to the laws and the judicial process of the country you’re visiting
  • Avoid excessive physical displays of affection in public, particularly in more conservative countries or regions
  • If you intend to frequent Internet chat rooms or other meeting places, it’s wise to find out about the local situation – police in some countries have been known to monitor such sites and locales with the intention of carrying out entrapment campaigns
  • Be wary of new-found “friends” – criminals sometimes exploit the generally open and relaxed nature of the LGBTI scene
  • If you receive unwelcome attention or unwelcome remarks, it’s usually best to ignore them
  • Some resorts or LGBTI neighborhoods can be quite segregated. Be aware that local residents may not approve of expressions of sexuality when you are in surrounding areas
  • You’re more likely to experience difficulties in rural areas, so exercise discretion
  • Some hotels, especially in rural areas, won’t accept bookings from same-sex couples. It’s best to check before you go.

What should I do if I run into problems while overseas?

The American Citizens Services (ACS) Section of the U.S. embassy or consulate may be able to help you if you run into problems overseas, especially if you feel that you can’t approach the local police or encounter difficulties with local authorities. Consular officers will protect your privacy, and will not make generalizations, assumptions, or pass judgment.

Our consular officers monitor and record incidents U.S. citizens report to them about the treatment they receive from host authorities. Our embassies regularly raise issues of concern, especially inappropriate treatment or harassment of our citizens, with relevant officials.

Immigration Issues

How can I obtain a foreign residence and/or work permit so I can live abroad with my foreign national spouse/partner?

Check with that country’s embassy or consulate in the United States to learn about any special documentation requirements (such as work authorization or a residence visa). You can also find foreign embassy and consulate contact information in the Country Specific Information for each country.

For visa questions related to same-sex spouses, please visit our Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) FAQ page.

Travel Tips and reviews by SeatGuru

Cheap Flights

Do you have the G-Factor?

Your journey – and your flight – matter and who better than SeatGuru to make sure you have the best one possible. No one knows cabin comfort like SeatGuru: we’ve been helping travelers choose the best airline seat for over ten years. And now we’ve condensed all our knowledge into our new Guru Factor (“G-Factor “) rating so you can choose the best possible flight for your journey. The G-Factor gives you comprehensive yet clear information about what to expect from the overall flight experience.

With our newly launched flight comparison search engine, SeatGuru not only finds you the cheapest flights but just as importantly gives you our G-Factor recommendation for each flight option. We’ll tell you which itineraries score high on legroom and comfort and which ones don’t. Each flight from the SeatGuru price comparison engine has been run through the new G-Factor algorithm (patent pending) and comes with our straightforward recommendation: “Love it “, “Like it “, or “Live with it “.

The G-Factor recommendation is based on the following:

  • An overall comfort score based on the type of seat, seat pitch, width, and recline for each cabin
  • Data from over 45,000 user comments on more than 700 different aircraft configurations
  • Our comprehensive customer service and satisfaction ratings for hundreds of airlines
  • In-flight entertainment such as seatback TV, live satellite, and other audio and video options
  • Onboard product offerings such as WiFi, seat power ports, and other additional amenities

The G-Factor algorithm condenses all of the above and more – it is our secret formula used to calculate our SeatGuru G-Factor recommendation for each flight: “Love it “, “Like it “, or “Live with it “.

For those that believe the journey does matter – we’ve created the G-Factor to make sure you have the best flight possible.

Bermuda Travel Guide and Travel Information #cheap #tickets #hotels

Bermuda Travel Guide

Bermuda is probably best known for two things: lurid, knee-length shorts and the fabled Bermuda Triangle, a stretch of sea where boats and planes are said to have mysteriously disappeared. However, these lazy stereotypes serve only to distract from what is an exceptionally beautiful destination.

Comprised of around 180 islets, Bermuda looks like your archetypal Caribbean retreat with its fine sandy beaches, colourful coral reefs and swaying palms. But it s nothing of the sort. In fact this lonely archipelago floats 1,030km (640 miles) off the coast of South Carolina, adrift in the Atlantic Ocean, far from anywhere in particular.

A British Overseas Territory, Bermuda has embraced many traditions from the motherland: from sophisticated gents playing cricket to refined ladies supping afternoon tea. There are even red phone boxes.

Discovered by the Spanish in 1505, Bermuda fell into British hands a century later and has remained part of the much-diminished empire ever since. The legendary writer, Mark Twain, popularised the islands in the late 19th century. You go to heaven if you want I d rather stay here instead, he cooed. John Lennon was another fan of the archipelago, which was the muse behind his song, Borrowed Time.

For some time Bermuda has been considered a destination for the, shall we say, more mature traveller. And while its scenic golf courses, colonial hotels and genteel vibe do suit elderly travellers, the archipelago has started to attract a younger crowd in recent years. They come for the excellent scuba diving, the cycling and other adventure activities, or just to explore the beauty of the archipelago from the back of a motorbike.

And beautiful it is. Bermuda s coastline is blessed with pink sandy beaches and crystalline waters, while inland visitors will find an abundance of subtropical plants and flowers, interspersed with quaint pastel cottages. There are certainly worse places to disappear.

Travel Advice

Last updated: 30 November 2015

The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

Crime

Bermuda has a moderate crime rate driven in part by the drugs scene. Serious incidents, including use of weapons, do occur. Take precautions to safeguard yourself and your possessions. Common crimes include burglary, mugging, theft of unattended baggage and belongings, and theft of items from rental scooters.

The Bermuda Police Service website provides Tourist Safety Tips. Take particular care after dark.

Stick to well-lit parts of the island and avoid quieter, darker streets. There have been incidents of sexual assault. If you need help, contact the Bermuda Police Service in the first instance.

Road Travel

Tourists are not allowed to drive cars in Bermuda.

Buses, ferries and taxis are generally safe, frequent and efficient. You can t hire a car in Bermuda, but 50cc scooters are readily available for public hire. Driving is on the left, as in the UK. Roads are narrow, winding and undulating, and traffic may be heavy. Road accidents involving scooters are relatively common, and have resulted in serious injury or even death. You should take care. The national speed limit is 35kmh (22mph) but is lower in some urban areas.

Outside the major urban areas there are few footpaths or street lighting. Take care when out walking, especially at night.

Vaccines and Medicines

You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.

Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

Rabies can be found in dogs, bats, and other mammals in Belize, so CDC recommends this vaccine for the following groups:

  • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities (such as camping, hiking, biking, adventure travel, and caving) that put them at risk for animal bites.
  • People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers).
  • People who are taking long trips or moving to Belize
  • Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

There is no risk of yellow fever in Belize. The government of Belize requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. This does not include the US. If you are traveling from a country other than the US, check this list to see if you may be required to get the yellow fever vaccine: Countries with risk of yellow fever virus (YFV) transmission .

For more information on recommendations and requirements, see yellow fever recommendations and requirements for Belize. Your doctor can help you decide if this vaccine is right for you based on your travel plans.

Although the risk of malaria is low in Belize, you should avoid mosquito bites to prevent malaria. Some travelers to certain areas who are at higher risk for complications from malaria (such as pregnant women) may need to take extra precautions, like antimalarial medicine. Talk to your doctor about how you can prevent malaria while traveling. For more information on malaria in Belize, see malaria in Belize .

Hawaii Travel Tips

Getting to Hawaii

Honolulu International Airport (HNL) on Oahu is Hawaii’s major airport, serving as the entry point for most of Hawaii’s visitors. All major domestic carriers and many international carriers serve Oahu, so you can get here from just about anywhere.

There are also direct flights from the U.S. mainland to Maui. Kauai. and Hawaii Island. but for the most part, you may need to connect through Oahu to get to the neighbor islands including Lanai and Molokai. There are daily ferry services from Lahaina Harbor in Maui to both Manele Bay in Lanai and Kaunakakai Harbor in Molokai .Flight times from Honolulu International Airport (HNL), Oahu to:

Lihue Airport (LIH), Kauai. 30 minutes

Kahului Airport (OGG), Maui. 30 minutes

Kapalua-West Maui Airport (JHM), Maui. 30 minutes

Kona International Airport (KOA), Hawaii s Big Island. 45 minutes

Staying in Hawaii

Anytime of the year is a good time to visit Hawaii. Summer, between April and November, is warmer and drier (average temperature is 75?-88? F) while winter, between December and March, is a bit cooler (68?-80? F). Trade winds keep things comfortable year-round.

Traveling in Hawaii

To really experience all that Hawaii offers, you should consider renting a car. Reserve your rental vehicles in advance because quantities can be limited on some islands. Many visitors also enjoy taking bus tours to conveniently explore the Islands. Shuttles, taxis and public transport are available on most islands.

Hawaii’s Environment

The natural beauty of Hawaii s fragile environment comes from its geographical isolation from other ecosystems. Bringing plants, produce or animals can introduce pests and non-endemic species that could be destructive to Hawaii s environment.

The Department of Agriculture enforces strict rules regarding the exportation of uninspected plants and animals and requires a declaration form for each person arriving in Hawaii. When departing, your luggage must pass a pre-flight screening for uninspected fruits and plants. You are welcome to take inspected fresh flowers and fruits home. Items purchased at the airport or mailed home form local vendors are inspected for you.

The area code for the state of Hawaii is (808)

Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau: (808) 923-1811

You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water. Typhoid vaccine is not necessarily recommended for travelers whose itineraries are limited to Israel.

Ask your doctor what vaccines and medicines you need based on where you are going, how long you are staying, what you will be doing, and if you are traveling from a country other than the US.

You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

  • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities in remote areas that put them at risk for bat bites or other animal bites (such as adventure travel and caving).
  • People who will be working with or around animals (such as wildlife professionals and researchers).

Health Information for Travelers to Madagascar – Traveler view #hotel #travel

Vaccines and Medicines

You should be up to date on routine vaccinations while traveling to any destination. Some vaccines may also be required for travel.

Get travel vaccines and medicines because there is a risk of these diseases in the country you are visiting.

You can get typhoid through contaminated food or water in Madagascar. CDC recommends this vaccine for most travelers, especially if you are staying with friends or relatives, visiting smaller cities or rural areas, or if you are an adventurous eater.

You may need a polio vaccine before your trip to Madagascar.

You can get hepatitis B through sexual contact, contaminated needles, and blood products, so CDC recommends this vaccine if you might have sex with a new partner, get a tattoo or piercing, or have any medical procedures.

Rabies can be found in dogs, bats, and other mammals in Madagascar, so CDC recommends this vaccine for the following groups:

  • Travelers involved in outdoor and other activities (such as camping, hiking, biking, adventure travel, and caving) that put them at risk for animal bites.
  • People who will be working with or around animals (such as veterinarians, wildlife professionals, and researchers).
  • People who are taking long trips or moving to Madagascar
  • Children, because they tend to play with animals, might not report bites, and are more likely to have animal bites on their head and neck.

There is no risk of yellow fever in Madagascar. The government of Madagascar requires proof of yellow fever vaccination only if you are arriving from a country with risk of yellow fever. This does not include the US. If you are traveling from a country other than the US, check this list to see if you may be required to get the yellow fever vaccine: Countries with risk of yellow fever virus (YFV) transmission .

For more information on recommendations and requirements, see yellow fever recommendations and requirements for Madagascar. Your doctor can help you decide if this vaccine is right for you based on your travel plans.

Gartner Publishes Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide 2013 #gartner,

#

By Allie Philpin

Gartner, Inc. has just released their latest update of their Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide 2013 and the top 10 MPS providers worldwide remain the same, including last year’s new entry, Kyocera!

Gartner defines Managed Print Services (MPS) as a service provided to ‘optimise or manage a company’s document output to meet certain objectives’. Those objects could be cost efficiency, increase productivity, or to lessen the load on IT support. MPS is primarily implemented by corporate companies with over 500 users, although smaller enterprises are discovering the benefits of investing in an MPS solution, particularly those that have several locations worldwide. But for this report, Gartner limited it to providers that are single source across a minimum of two regions.

MPS covers a range of services including scanning, document capture, copy centres, telecommuters, workflow optimisation including restructuring of document workflows, document security, reducing print volumes and automating paper-intensive document processes, enterprise content management services and MFPs (multifunction products).

MPS is one of the fastest growing service markets with the top 10 providers of MPS services massing $8.9 billion in direct revenue, demonstrating a worldwide growth of 10%, with SMEs showing the quickest growth overall. Developing regions, such as Asia/Pacific which shows growth at 19%, are also taking up MPS exponentially. As trends continue towards mobility, cloud computing, handling of large amounts of data and analytics, as well as social media, organisations are required to adapt. As workers become more mobile yet demand better access to applications and the sharing of documents, there is a need for automating imaging and print services towards the paperless office.

Criteria for inclusion in the Magic Quadrant for Managed Print Services, Worldwide report is strict and only vendors that meet all the criteria are included. Their evaluation criteria are based on two areas: the Ability to Execute and Completeness of Vision. Ability to Execute examines the providers’ level of success in delivering results, both currently and in the future, and incorporates the quality and efficacy of their processes, methods, systems or procedures to enable competitive performance that is efficient, effective, and affects revenue in a positive way, retention and reputation.

Gartner identified 10 MPS providers that they considered to be market leaders in the field of Managed Print Services, Worldwide, as follows:

1. The largest MPS provider in 2012 was Xerox, and by quite a margin at $2.75 billion in revenue. Xerox work in partnership with Fuji Xerox to support the Asia/Pacific region; and their Enterprise Print Services (EPS) and Xerox Partner Print Services plans are the most popular.
2. Second largest in 2012 is Ricoh, bringing in $2.09 billion in revenue, utilising their wide range of A3 MFPs. In 2009, they launched their Managed Document Services and a single service plan that offers a range of options and variations that can be adapted to meet a customer’s requirements.
3. HP was the third largest in 2012 with revenue of $1.52 billion, but with more customers than other MPS providers. Again, their offering is single source but it is adaptable with additions that can be tailored to a company’s needs. HP also works with Canon and other partners to ensure that what they offer is what the customer requires.
4. Fourth largest was Lexmark who brought in revenue in 2012 of $958 million, and who specialise in organisations that carry out a large amount of process-driven printing, for example, the banking, retail and securities, insurance, healthcare, manufacturing and the public sector.
5. HP partners, Canon, are the fifth largest MPS provider and enjoyed revenue of $810 million in 2012. Canon’s MPS business is built upon their massive MFP sales and service organisations, and is based around their Managed Document Services (MDS) A3-centric product.
6. Sixth largest is Konica Minolta, totalling $391 in MPS revenue in 2012 worldwide and also registers one of the highest growth rates at 48%, principally in Western Europe and North America. Konica Minolta’s Optimised Print Services (OPS) offering has been particularly successful within Europe.
7. Toshiba came in seventh posting MPS revenue of $163 million. Their Toshiba Encompass incorporates MPS and they are also a big supplier of A3-style MFPs, which are often placed in MPS programs.
8. Pitney Bowes is the eighth largest MPS provider and registered MPS revenue of $154 million (according to Gartner’s estimate). Having sold off their UK and Ireland operations, their business is mainly concentrated in North America.
9. Ninth in the list is ARC Document Solutions, with revenue of $72 million. ARC, a large MPS provider, is not an equipment manufacturer and it isn’t closely linked with a single manufacturer.
10. Last in the top 10 of MPS providers is Kyocera. Having improved and up-scaled their MPS program – Managed Document Services (MDS) – recently, it first qualified for inclusion in the Magic Quadrant report last year and whilst their biggest market is North America, their MPS program is more widely known in Western Europe.

If you’re a medium to large organisation looking to evaluate and identify suitable MPS providers, then Gartner’s report is a good starting point; but remember, just because Managed Print Services is the buzzword (or buzzwords!) doesn’t mean that it is right for your organisation. So assess and evaluate based upon your specific needs as a business.

Italy Travel Guide and Travel Information #travel #destinations

Italy Travel Guide

Travelling around Italy remains one of those rare experiences in life like a perfect spring day or the power of first love that can never be overrated. In few places do history, art, fashion, food and la dolce vita ( the good life ) intermingle so effortlessly. There are sunny isles and electric blue surf, glacial lakes and fiery volcanoes, rolling vineyards and urban landscapes harbouring more UNESCO World Heritage sites than any other country on Earth. Few places offer such variety and few visitors leave without a fervent desire to return.

The artistic and architectural treasures of Rome . Venice . Florence and Naples draw visitors to them like moths to a flame. Not content with Romans conquering most of the known world, the Venetians dispatched Marco Polo to uncharted lands off the map, while Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Brunelleschi and Michelangelo kick-started the Renaissance in Western art and architecture.

Look around at all the splendid palaces, paintings, churches and monuments and wonder at the centuries of hard graft and the unswerving devotion to traditional techniques and terroir. Like the local art, wine is also designed to elevate your spirits. From the neatly-banded stone terraces of the Cinque Terre, which snake from sea level to terrifying precipices, to the blousy hillsides of Chianti, the riverine plain of the Po valley and the volcanic slopes of Etna, Italian wines are lovingly made to complement the carefully-sourced regional cuisine on your plate.

Much like its food, this country is an endless feast of experiences. No matter how much you gorge yourself, you ll always feel as though you’re still on the first course. Do you go skiing in the Dolomites, or cycling in wine country? Do you dive the sun-split waters of Sardinia, climb Aeolian volcanoes or stalk market stalls in Naples? The choice is dazzling and bewildering. So take the advice of the locals. Slow down, sit back, tuck in that napkin and get ready to begin.

Travel Advice

Last updated: 30 November 2015

The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

Crime

Crime levels are generally low but there are higher levels of petty crime (particularly bag snatching and pick-pocketing) in the big city centres. This often involves co-ordinated gangs including minors. Targets are often hassled and jostled to distract them, while other members of the gang go into action.

Take care on public transport and in crowded areas in Rome, especially around the main railway station Termini and on the number 64 bus, which goes to and from St Peter s Square.

Be particularly vigilant on trains to and from the main airports in Italy (especially Fiumicino airport) and when unloading your baggage from trains and coaches. Thieves sometimes rob sleeping passengers on overnight trains.

Use a hotel safe for valuables where possible.

Alcohol and drugs can make you less alert, less in control and less aware of your environment. If you are going to drink, know your limit. Drinks served in bars overseas are often stronger than those in the UK. Don t leave food or drinks unattended at any time. Victims of spiked drinks have been robbed and sometimes assaulted.

Cars, at rest stops and motorway service stations are targets for robbers. Be wary of offers of help for flat tyres, particularly on the motorway from Naples to Salerno. Tyres have sometimes been punctured deliberately. Always lock your vehicle, never leave valuables on show and avoid leaving luggage in cars for any length of time.

Police in Europe have issued warnings that counterfeit Euro notes are in circulation. Make sure notes received from any source other than banks or legitimate Bureaux de Change are genuine.

Local travel

Only use officially licensed taxis. These will have a taxi sign on the roof. Make sure the meter in the taxi has been reset before you set off.

Tickets on public transport must be endorsed in a ticket machine before you start a journey. The machines are usually positioned at the entrance to platforms in railway stations, in the entrance hall to metro stations and on board buses and trams. Officials patrol public transport and will issue an on the spot fine of Euros 50 to 60 if you don t hold an endorsed ticket. Tickets can be purchased from shops displaying the T sign, and are usually bars or tobacconists.

Pedestrians should take care at Zebra crossings. Vehicles don t always stop, even though they are required to under the Italian Traffic Code.

Pre-planned strikes

Transport strikes are often called at short notice. For more information visit the Ministry of Transport website (in Italian).

Road travel

You can drive in Italy with a UK driving licence, insurance and vehicle documents. If you are driving a vehicle that does not belong to you then written permission from the registered owner may be required. On-the-spot fines can be issued for minor traffic offences.

In 2013 there were 3,400 road deaths in Italy (source: Department for Transport ). This equates to 5.7 road deaths per 100,000 of population and compares to the UK average of 2.8 road deaths per 100,000 of population in 2013.

Private and hire cars are not allowed to enter the historic centre of many Italian cities without an official pass. If your hotel is in the centre of one of these cities, you can buy a pass from most car hire companies. The boundaries of historic centres are usually marked with the letters ZTL in black on a yellow background. Don t pass this sign as your registration number is likely to be caught on camera and you will be fined.

There is a congestion charge for Milan city centre. For further information see the Milan Municipality website .

To reduce pollution, the city authorities in Rome sometimes introduce traffic restrictions whereby vehicles with odd or even number plates are allowed into a green area on alternative days. For further information see the Rome Municipality website .

Road hauliers

Trucks over 7.5 tonnes (75 quintali) are not allowed on Italian roads (including motorways) on Sundays from 7:00 am until midnight, local time. These restrictions don t apply to trucks that have already been granted an exception (eg those carrying perishable goods and petrol supplies). Both the Mont Blanc and Frejus road tunnels linking Italy and France are open but restrictions introduced following fires in 1999 and 2005 are applied to HGVs. These can be summarised as follows:

Mont Blanc: height restricted to 4.7m; minimum speed 50 km/h; maximum speed 70 km/h. Further details from www.tunnelmb.com or by telephone on 00 33 (0) 45 05 55 500.

Fr jus: Vehicles of more than 3.5 tonnes are subject to 1-hour alternate traffic flows starting at 8:00am leaving Italy. Special regulations apply to vehicles carrying dangerous loads. Further details from http://www.tunneldufrejus.com .

Winter sports

If you are planning a skiing holiday, you should contact the Italian State Tourist Board for advice on safety and weather conditions before you travel. Address: 1 Princes Street, London W1R 9AY. Telephone: 020 7355 1557 or 1439.

Off-piste skiing is highly dangerous. You should follow all safety instructions meticulously given the dangers of avalanches in some areas. Italy has introduced a law forcing skiers and snowboarders to carry tracking equipment if they go off-piste. The law also obliges under-14s to wear a helmet. There are plans for snowboarders to be banned from certain slopes.

Swimming

Follow local advice if jellyfish are present.

Laos Travel Guide and Travel Information #travel #replublic

#laos travel

Laos Travel Guide

Laos officially known as the Lao People’s Democratic Republic is one of the great travel frontiers; landlocked and mountainous, swamped by jungles and promising Indian Jones adventures in remote tribal villages and ancient Buddhist caves.

With Thailand on one side and Vietnam on the other, you might expect Laos to be commercial and crowded, but this is Asia s backwater, where life moves as slowly as the churning waters of the Mekong River, which forms the border with three countries Myanmar. Thailand and Cambodia as it snakes south towards the Gulf of Thailand.

A long-running civil war during which the USA dropped millions of bombs in Laos kept the country off the mainstream tourist circuit for many years. Unexploded ordnance and poor infrastructure continue to pose a challenge to tourism, but each year brings a new crop of upmarket accommodation to supplement the existing backpacker hostels Laos is finally finding its feet. Eco-tourism looks set to be its trump card, taking visitors to remote tribal villages and pristine national parks teeming with weird and wonderful wildlife.

Despite this rugged outlook, the capital city, Vientiane, feels remarkably cosmopolitan, helped by a caf culture left behind from when this was part of French Indochina. Dotted around its pleasantly faded, palm-shaded streets are ancient ruins, gleaming stupas and graceful colonial buildings.

The laidback atmosphere and the relative lack of modern development make Laos perhaps the most authentic and unspoiled of the Southeast Asia nations, though it competes for this title with neighbouring Myanmar. Laos is also one of the few communist countries left in the world which should be obvious from the bureaucratic red tape and the omnipresent red stars on uniforms and state buildings.

Until 1988, tourists were banned from Laos, but now it is possible to travel all over the country. Nevertheless, there are few crowded tourist hotspots, with the possible exception of monastery-studded Luang Prabang and the overblown backpacker resort of Vang Vieng. Wherever you go in Laos, you ll encounter the delectable Lao cuisine: a little bit French, a little bit Southeast Asian, and perfect washed down with a bottle of Beer Lao.

Travel Advice

Last updated: 30 November 2015

The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

Crime

The local equivalent to the UK 999 emergency lines are: 1190 for fire, 1195 for ambulance and for police: 1191, 241162, 241163, 241164, and 212703. The Tourist Police can be contacted in Vientiane on 021-251-128.

Petty crime, including bag snatching occurs frequently and is becoming increasingly violent, especially in tourist areas. Avoid placing bags in the front basket of bicycles. In the lead up to local festivals and major events like Lao New Year in April and the end of Buddhist lent in October, and the boat racing festivals which happen during September and October, there is a significant increase in theft and violent crime.

There have been confirmed reports of armed robberies of foreigners homes in Vientiane, some of which have occurred in broad daylight. You should review any security measures you have in place and be vigilant.

Be particularly vigilant travelling at night by bicycle or motorcycle, especially if you re alone. Stick to well-used, well lit roads and carry a personal alarm if possible. There has been an increase in reports of violent muggings with guns and knives in Vientiane, especially at night. Be aware of your surroundings and avoid unlit roads, especially if you re alone

Local law enforcement responses to crimes, even violent crimes, are often limited. Foreigners attempting to report crimes have reported finding police stations closed, emergency telephone numbers unanswered, or police lacking transportation or authorisation to investigate crimes that occur at night.

The theft of passports is a particular problem. Never leave food or drink unattended. There have been incidents of drug related rapes reported by foreigners. Be careful about taking drinks from strangers and be wary at bars, clubs, restaurants and parties.

Political situation

Specific events or political disputes may trigger violent protests. You should avoid any demonstrations or large gatherings of people. Keep yourself informed of local developments.

Local travel

Unexploded mines and ordinances are a hazard throughout Laos, and kill about 300 people each year. The risk is particularly high in Xieng Khouang Province (Plain of Jars), Luang Prabang Province and areas of the Lao-Vietnamese border, formerly the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Mined areas are often unmarked. Don t stray off main routes in rural areas, and don t pick up metal objects.

Take care near the border with Burma. This is a well-known drugs trade-route where armed groups operate.

There are regular reports of clashes in the Xaisomboun district in Vientiane involving the Lao army. Travel is not permitted without a permit. If you do visit, you should be accompanied by the authorities. Most recently, shootings took place in Xaisomboun town on 15, 17 and 18 November. One person was killed on 17 November, and another hospitalised on 18 November.

There have been small-scale skirmishes between anti-government groups and government troops in isolated areas along the Lao-Thai border. The local law enforcement agencies have limited capability to counter these threats.

You should get permission from the village chief, district head, provincial governor or national tourism authority for any travel perceived as out of the ordinary, including business, extensive photography, or scientific research of any kind.

You may be stopped by the police at any time, particularly in the evening, and asked to show identification papers before being allowed to travel on. You should comply with requests to stop at checkpoints and roadblocks.

Drugs

There have been several deaths from drug abuse among foreign nationals visiting Laos. Some tourists have had drinks or food spiked with drugs. Some restaurants in popular tourist destinations offer drug-laced food and drink which has led to victims being assaulted. Consuming these products can result in serious injury or even death.

Air travel

A list of recent incidents and accidents can be found on the website of the Aviation Safety network.

In 2010 the International Civil Aviation Organisation carried out an audit of the level of implementation of the critical elements of safety oversight in Laos.

We can t offer advice on the safety of individual airlines. However, the International Air Transport Association publishes a list of registered airlines that have been audited and found to meet a number of operational safety standards and recommended practices. This list is not exhaustive and the absence of an airline from this list does not necessarily mean that it s unsafe.

A departure tax is now included in the price of the air ticket and is no longer paid separately in cash.

Road travel

Roads in Laos are in poor condition. Travel after dark significantly increases the risk of an accident as vehicles often do not have lights. Livestock also stray on to the roads causing accidents.

Road accidents and fatalities have risen sharply in recent years, particularly in towns and cities. Most accidents are caused by drunk driving, reckless driving and a general violation of traffic rules Take care, especially if you re riding a motorbike.

You can report road accidents to a dedicated police number +856 20 5666 9090.

Take extra care on overnight bus trips, particularly on buses travelling to/from Vietnam. There have been reports of scams and thefts of personal belongings, including passports on these trips.

If you are involved in a road accident you will have to pay compensation for third party property damage and injury, even if you are not at fault. As a general rule, the Lao authorities will overwhelmingly find in favour of Lao citizens, regardless of the situation. Lao insurers only meet a small proportion of the costs of an accident and will not cover this compensation.

When hiring a car, motorcycle, or bicycle, do not give your original British passport to the owner of the vehicle as surety against loss, theft, or damage to the vehicle. There have been reports of foreign nationals having to make an additional payment for any loss, theft or damage caused, even if you are not at fault, before your passport will be returned.

Water-based activities

Travel on the Mekong River by speedboat and slow-boat can be dangerous, especially when water levels are low. Make sure you travel with a company that provides lifejackets.

White water rafting, kayaking, tubing and other water-based activities, including swimming in the Mekong, are dangerous and incidents of drowning and serious injuries have been reported. Laos does not have the same health and safety expectations as in the UK. Please be aware that safety advice will be minimal and there may not be warning signs at tourist sites. Take great care, including in Vang Vieng, and check your travel insurance policy to ensure that you are covered for these activities.

Extended Auto Warranty – Vehicle Service Contract Info Center #extended #auto

#

Vehicle Service Contract Information Center

Welcome to ExtendedAutoWarranty.com, home of the Internet’s largest library of resources on extended auto warranties. We are an independent team of researchers, reviewers, and auto protection experts. We provide unbiased and honest information that we publish ourselves as well as material found on the Internet that has been deemed relevant and reputable.

It is our mission to provide consumers with the advice they need without the hassle of finding it.

Because so many “review sites” and “information resources” provide opinions that have been influenced by the company under review, it is difficult to find a straight answer to your questions. We scour the Internet, call every company, and compile then share our research outcome with you. At ExtendedAutoWarranty.com, you get all the advice you need and none of the bias that you don’t.

We were like you once: Owning a car with repairs that we could barely afford, constantly searching for a better way to deal with costly repair bills. But one thing we found extremely difficult was getting information that was not only truthful but unbiased. We found dozens of websites claiming to provide information on the extended warranty industry that contained less-than-credible resources. As a result, we brought this website to life. And by doing so, we became the #1 Consumer Extended Vehicle Protection website on the Internet.

Extended Auto Warranty Companies Reviewed

Finding the best plan at the right price is not easy so you’ll have to take time to shop around. Of course you have to first decide if you actually need the warranty. This will depend on personal preferences and how much of the future risks you are willing to take care of. While most cars will require numerous repairs for as long as you own them, some will need no more than routine maintenance. Then there are those that will require unexpected but very expensive repairs. Just like when purchasing a vehicle, the best way is to compare different options on the internet. Fortunately, there are independent companies that review and rate extended auto warranty providers for clients.

Extended auto coverage is available for new as well as used cars. Since new cars come with a factory warranty, the need for extended coverage largely depends on how long you intend to keep the vehicle. For example, most factory plans usually last three years or up to 36,000 miles. Now if you intend to keep the car for two or three years, purchasing an extended warranty may make little sense. However, if you plan on keeping the car for a long time after the factory warranty expires then it’s a good idea to extend your protection. If buying a used car, there is a high probability that the factory coverage plan will not be transferable or will have expired so you’ll need extra protection.

It’s always good to know what is covered, and what’s not covered by the Vehicle Service Contract you intend to buy. Does it cover wear and tear? What about breakdown? Under breakdown, some warranties cover only the parts that break. But you know well that not all parts fail due to breakdown so such a policy will be less inclusive than is desirable. Some policies extend coverage to parts that wear out with time under the “wear and tear” subtitle. Again, not all extended policies have this feature. Some contracts do not cover ABS brakes and most of them don’t cover overheating. Transmission, engine, seals and gaskets, drive axle assembly and turbocharger/superchargers will usually be covered, though it is better to fully explore specific options before committing to a plan.

Some companies require that you pay the repair and submit a receipt to the warranty provider for reimbursement. While this is not a bad idea, you may sometimes have to wait for weeks or even months before you get your money back. Then there are those that pay the repair shop directly and almost immediately. For purposes of convenience, never purchase warranties that don’t pay the shop directly.

Romanian Economy – Official Travel and Tourism Information #las #vegas #travel

#economy travel
#

Economy

For many centuries Romania’s economy was based on agriculture. In the 1930s Romania was one of the main European producers of wheat, corn and meats and it used to be called the bread basket of Europe. In the 1950s the communist leader of Romania, Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej, began developing heavy industry.

There has been a shift towards heavy industries since the 1970s but the agriculture is still economically important and employs about one-third of the workforce.

Romania produces coal, natural gas, iron ore and petroleum but most raw material for the country’s large industrial capacity potential are imported. Prominent industries include chemical (petrochemical, paints and varnishes), metal processing, machine manufacturing, industrial and transport equipment, textiles, manufactured consumer goods, lumbering and furniture.

39.2% of Romania’s territory is arable land, 28% forests, 21% pastures, hayfields and orchards and 2.5% vineyards. Corn, wheat, vegetable oil seeds, vegetables, apples and grapes for wine are the main crops and sheep and pigs the main livestock. Forestry and fisheries are being developed under long-term programs. Since 1990, successive governments have concentrated on turning Romania into a market economy.

Tibet Travel Information

China Visa

If you are entering Tibet from Kathmandu, you should get your Chinese visa from the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu (regardless of whether you already have a Chinese visa issued in your country). Please note that if you have already got a Chinese visa at your home country, it will be cancelled and fresh visa will be issued in Kathmandu. So do not apply for a Chinese visa until you reach to Kathmandu and avoid waste of money (in the case you enter Tibet from Nepal).

However if you are entering Tibet form mainland China or Honking, get your Chinese visa in advance. You are required to hold a valid Chinese visa (issued by a Chinese Embassy and stamped in your individual passport), as well as a valid passport to enter Tibet (at least six months valid). When applying for a Chinese visa at your home country, it is better not mentioning that you intend to visit Tibet.

In order to get Chinese visa in Kathmandu, please send us your clear passport copy and other details like your profession to us at least 15 days in advance. We will get Tibet Travel Permit (TTB permit or commonly called Invitation letter to travel to Tibet from the Tibet Travel Bureau – TTB). Once you arrive to Kathmandu, we apply for your Chinese visa along with your original passport and TTB permit. You will get a group visa (it will be not stamped in your individual passport but will be in a sheet of paper).

Very important: The visa days in the Chinese Embassy in Kathmandu is Monday, Wednesday and Friday ( and visa can be collected the same day upon payment of urgent fees – USD 114 for European passports and USD 198 for US passports ). In order not to waste your time in Kathmandu, make it such that you arrive to Kathmandu either Sunday or Tuesday or Thursday so that you can get visa the next day and fly to Tibet the day after. (Except in main season, the flights to Lhasa from Kathmandu are generally operated on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday mornings and almost always get packed)

Tibet Travel Permits

There are two different permits required to travel to Tibet

  1. The entry permit (TTB permit, equivalent of a visa for Tibet, required to enter Tibet region of China. A Chinese visa and Tibet entry permit are both required to enter Tibet ). You need to show this to the authorities in airport or surface entry points .
  • The Alien travel permit (PSB permit) which is required to travel restricted areas in Tibet. In practice you need PSB permit to travel any regions outside Lhasa. Different PSB permits are required to travel to different parts of Tibet. PSB permits are issued by local police authorities called Public Security Bureau ( PSB ).

    How to get the travel permits?

    You send us the following details exactly as in your passport at least 15 days before the trip date .

    1) Your full name;

    2) Your gender;

    3) Your date of birth;

    4) Your passport number;

    5) Your nationality

    6) Your profession

    Or simply send us a clear scan copy of your passport.

    Please note that mentioning your true profession is important as journalists. government officials, political personnel and diplomats may require more complicated procedures in order to be issued a permit. We do not process for them nor we would be liable if travel permits are not issued at the last moment because you belong to this category of profession but do not inform us in time. Please note that neither we nor any travel agency will / can sell permit-only service. One must buy the tour package to obtain it .

    Important points to be noted:

    1. Tibet travel permits may be acquired through a travel agency, except by the following groups of people: diplomats, journalists, and government officials; who should contact the Foreign Affairs Office of the Tibetan Government in order to arrange a permit.
  • Tibet travel permit is required to buy the air tickets, at the airport check-in counter while checking in for the flights and at the Lhasa airport or surface entry point.
  • Once in Tibet, your tour guide is supposed to retain your permit. You may not carry it on your person, or travel within Tibet with it in your possession. The Alien Travel Permit is required for travel outside of Lhasa.

    All our itineraries are based on entry from Kathmandu. Even now. Kathmandu is the easiest place to organize Tibet visa / travel permits and flight tickets to Lhasa.

    Air China flies Kathmandu to Lhasa three times a week ( more flights operated during main tourist season ).

    One way fare Kathmandu – Lhasa is USD 379 at present ( flight costs are subject to change without prior notice. please check with us before booking ) .

    Other places to enter Tibet by flight is from Chhengdu or Beijing and from Hongkong. Lhasa is now linked with train from the main land China.We also offer our tours for those entering Tibet from other places than kathmandu.

    Tour Guides

    Throughout your time in Tibet you will be accompanied by a English speaking Tibetan guide who will not only act as an interpreter but will also provide a valuable insight into the Tibetan way of life.

    Hotels and accommodation

    There are good hotels now in Lhasa. There are three star level hotels in Shigatse and Gyantse to. The hotel facilities along Nepal Tibet highway. specially on Zangmu and Tingri / Shegar is only basic.

    The facilities and services on the highways are still not of the standard found elsewhere. So do not expect much in term of hotels.

    Travel Nurse Jobs

    Find Your Perfect Traveling

    Nurse Position

    Travel nurse jobs are everywhere. The nursing shortage that the U.S. is in has made that possible and there is no end in sight. How do you find good nursing jobs?

    Well, it is easy, if you take your time and do your research. There are hundreds of travel nurse companies out there, but, they are not all created equal.

    There are many different requirements you should expect from your agency when you are looking to become a travel nurse.

    • What is your specialty and does the agency have contracts with hospitals that you can and want to work at?
    • What benefits are important to you? Can the agency fulfill your needs?
    • What is their pay? Is it comparable to other travel agencies?
    • Speak to a recruiter. Do they have answers to your questions? Do you get along well with them? They will be your contact for everything.
    • Does the recruiter listen to what you want instead of trying to steer you into what they have available?
    • Is the company able to help you advance in your career? Do they offer nursing continuing education?
    • Do they offer a 401K/retirement account?

    Be sure to sign up for our free 5 day e-course that will give you all of the information you must have before signing up with the travel nurse agencies.

    Where would you like your travel nursing career to take you?

    Anything else that is important to you, speak with your recruiter. They will help you to achieve everything you need. They are there to assist their travel nurses and should be able to help guide you in all of your decisions.

    Usually the packages that are being offered can be changed. For instance, if you need a 2 bedroom apartment, you can choose to not have one of the other benefits or pay a small monthly stipend. All is negotiable.

    Travel nurse jobs are as varied as travel nurses. They are available in major cities and rural areas. Once you are able to determine your needs, let your recruiter know and they will set it up for you.

    Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

    GIS is a computer-based methodology for collecting, analyzing, modeling and presenting geographic data for a wide range of applications. The proliferation of desktop hardware and software has made these systems an important tool in our day-to-day lives. GIS data and the people trained in these methodologies and applications are becoming integral components in nearly every type of business and government service. The GIS professional must be competent in integrating geography, data and systems to solve a wide range of problems for business, healthcare, insurance, law enforcement and other industries.

    Forensic Psychologist: Education Requirements and Career Information

    Education Requirements for Forensic Psychologists

    While a forensic psychologist may find work with only a Master’s degree, a Ph.D. in psychology or a Doctor of Psychology (Psy.D.) degree is recommended. Licensing is essential for all practicing psychologists and can be obtained by taking examinations through the state psychologist licensing board. The American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) classifies forensic psychology as a recognized specialty and offers certification examinations.

    To become a forensic psychologist, it is beneficial to have a minor in law. Some forensic psychologists have doctorates in both psychology and law. Because the application of forensic psychology deals specifically with how psychology works with the law, most jobs require varying levels of legal studies. This is a relatively new facet of psychology and forensic psychologists are encouraged to participate in continuing education programs throughout their careers.

    Career Information for Forensic Psychologists

    There are a variety of paths a forensic psychologist may take. Some work specifically with crime victims. A forensic psychologist counsels rape and abuse victims of all ages before, during and after court trials. They also assist victims in dealing with the stress of reliving the crime when the victims appear on the witness stand. On occasion, the forensic psychologist will testify as an expert witness to explain to a judge and jury the effects of the crime on the victim.

    Other forensic psychologists work with the accused. These psychologists consult with persons being charged with crimes and assess the competency levels of the accused. The forensic psychologist often determines whether or not the accused has a clear enough understanding of right and wrong to stand trial. They may make a recommendation to a judge that the accused be sent to an institution for therapy prior to or in lieu of a court trial. These psychologists also work with those who have been convicted of crimes if part of the sentence includes rehabilitative therapy.

    Some forensic psychologists go into private practice and work as consultants, but this is rare. Others have opportunities in research facilities. Primarily, forensic psychologists work in correctional facilities, law enforcement agencies and mental health institutions. They may also be members of law and psychology departments in an academic setting. Or, community health organizations and probation departments may employ forensic psychologists.

    According to PayScale.com. as of January 2016, the median annual salary for forensic psychologists was $61,489. This is significantly lower than the median reported in May 2015 by the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (the BLS) for all types of psychologists at $94,590. According to the BLS, job growth for all types of psychologists, a group which includes forensic psychologists, was expected to increase by 19% between 2014 and 2024. Since most jobs available to forensic scientists are government and law enforcement related, salaries are often determined by federal, state and local budgetary concerns. Florida and California are the favored employers geographically.

    A forensic psychologist can work within a few industries, such as law or healthcare, where they are commonly responsible for assessing an accused criminal’s psychological state and determining whether the accused is fit to stand trial. Alternatively, many forensic psychologists work with victims of a crime such as rape or abuse. A forensic psychologist often provides counseling services for victims and accused criminals, depending on their specialty.

    Vietnam Travel Guide

    Some destinations evoke mental images the moment their names are mentioned, and Vietnam is one of them. A frenetic and fascinating country, it calls to mind conical-hatted street vendors, water buffalo plodding across rice fields, mopeds buzzing through cities and floating markets on the Mekong River.

    The days when Vietnam was best known for its conflict with America are long gone. From the temples of Hanoi and the islands of Halong Bay to the beaches of Nha Trang and the palaces of Hue, it is a country now firmly etched in the travel psyche.

    At times, Vietnam is an assault on the senses. Life in its feverish cities is conducted largely on the streets, among chattering bia hois (pavement pubs) and steaming pho (noodle soup) stands. The country s two main cities Hanoi in the north, Ho Chi Minh in the south are different in many ways, but they share an intoxicating energy. Ancient pagodas and colonial houses jostle for space with new-build skyscrapers, while labyrinthine back-alleys hum with life. These narrow streets are atmospheric places to spend time, day or night.

    The country s long, thin shape, sometimes compared to two rice baskets at either end of a pole, means these two cities form natural start and end points to an itinerary. The highlights along the way, meanwhile, are as well packed as the spring rolls which adorn market stalls: nature-lovers, history buffs, beach bums and foodies are all catered for in singularly Vietnamese style.

    Those heading into the countryside can expect not only glorious scenery, but a rich cultural web of different ethnic groups. The US wartime legacy can still be readily explored perhaps most notably at the Cu Chi Tunnels near Ho Chi Minh but this is a country to enjoy for what it is today, whether you re here for a few days or a month.

    Travel Advice

    Last updated: 29 November 2015

    The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

    Crime

    Most visits to Vietnam are trouble free but you should take sensible precautions to protect yourself and your belongings.

    Carry a photocopy of the pages from your passport with your personal details and visa for ID, and leave the original document in a safe place.

    There has been a reported increase in incidents of personal belongings and bags being snatched, including from people travelling on motorbikes. Thieves cut the straps or bottoms of bags. Some thieves have resorted to physical violence, though this is not common. You should remain alert and take care of your belongings, particularly in crowded areas and places visited by tourists where pick pockets and bag snatchers operate.

    Sexual assaults are rare, but you should take sensible precautions and travel with friends when possible.

    There have been reports of arguments over hotel, restaurant or taxi bills turning violent or abusive. It is well worth researching places to stay before you arrive. To avoid potential disputes, make sure you are clear about the level of service you can expect to receive and any associated charges.

    There have been reports of scams targeting tourists, involving fake charities, gambling and taxis.

    Local travel

    Travel is restricted near military installations and some areas of Vietnam are fairly inaccessible. If you wish to visit a village, commune or ward that is close to the border you may need to get permission from the provincial police department. Contact the relevant local authority for more information.

    Don t stray off main routes in rural areas and check with your tour operator before setting off. There have been mountain climbing accidents in the north of Vietnam. You should follow safety guidelines and procedures and make sure you are supervised by a reputable guide.

    Undertake any leisure activities which include firearms at your own risk and make sure you are supervised by a reputable guide. There have been reports of hearing loss from those close to these activities.

    Unexploded mines and ordnance are a continuing hazard in former battlefields, particularly in central Vietnam and along the Laos Border, formerly traversed by the Ho Chi Minh Trail. Mined areas are often unmarked.

    Road travel

    With effect from 1 October 2015, International Driving Permits (IDPs) are accepted in Vietnam. The type of vehicle you ll be able to drive is limited to the categories for which your permit is valid. You ll need to show both the IDP and your UK driving licence to the authorities when required.

    If you don t have an IDP to drive a car or motorcycle you ll need to get a Vietnamese driving licence from the Hanoi Department of Public Works and Transportation (telephone: +84 4 3843 5325) or the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Public Works and Transportation (telephone: +84 8 3829 0451 or 0452).

    The standard of driving and vehicle maintenance is poor. There are frequent accidents and fatal crashes. Accidents can result in costly medical bills and you may not be covered by your insurance. It s illegal to be on a motorbike without a helmet. Helmet safety standards vary.

    Traffic accidents tend to attract a large crowd. If you are involved in a traffic accident you could face criminal charges and you may need to pay compensation to the injured person even if the injuries are minor. You will be given a receipt for any official fine. If you are subject to an investigation, offer the police your full co-operation and inform the British Embassy in Hanoi or Consulate General in Hoi Chi Minh City.

    Don t use your passport as a deposit for hiring vehicles or in place of a fine in the event of a traffic offence.

    Metered taxis from larger firms are generally reliable. There are many taxi operators and meters are set at different prices. The meter should start at around 8,000 to 20,000 VND. Where possible get hotels or restaurants to book you a reputable taxi.

    There have been reports of overcharging for taxi journeys from airports. Check the published fares near the taxi stands before starting your journey.

    Bus and coach crashes are not unusual. Vehicles are often poorly maintained. The risk of death or injury on the road increases if you travel at night. When travelling by bus be vigilant against petty theft. Don t accept offers of free transfers to hotels unless organised in advance, as these are likely to be bogus.

    Rail travel in Vietnam is generally safe. Be vigilant against petty theft. There have been numerous reports of personal belongings being stolen while people are asleep on the train between Hanoi and Sapa.

    Sea travel

    There have been a number of fatal boat accidents in Vietnam, some involving foreign nationals in Halong Bay, including a major incident in October 2012. Safety regulations and standards vary greatly and are not at the same level as the United Kingdom. Check with your tour guide about the safety record and registration of boats, and the certification of personnel before setting off. Make sure you receive a full safety briefing when joining any boat. Consider safety standards carefully before taking an overnight boat trip on Halong Bay as some boats have sunk quickly and without warning.

    Piracy has been known to occur in coastal areas off Vietnam. Mariners should be vigilant, reduce opportunities for attacks, establish secure areas onboard and report all incidents to the coastal and flag state authorities.

    Political situation

    Vietnam has a single party political system, which does not welcome dissent. Internal conflict is rare. Some protests in May turned violent. You should avoid all protests.

    Consular assistance

    Providing prompt consular assistance is difficult outside Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City because of poorly developed infrastructure. Some places are a flight away with only 1 daily flight.

    The Red Planet

    Mars is a small rocky body once thought to be very Earthlike. Like the other terrestrial planets —Mercury, Venus, and Earth—its surface has been changed by volcanism, impacts from other bodies, movements of its crust, and atmospheric effects such as dust storms. It has polar ice caps that grow and recede with the change of seasons; areas of layered soils near the Martian poles suggest that the planet’s climate has changed more than once, perhaps caused by a regular change in the planet’s orbit.

    Martian tectonism, the formation and change of a planet’s crust, differs from Earth’s. Where Earth tectonics involve sliding plates that grind against each other or spread apart in the seafloors, Martian tectonics seem to be vertical, with hot lava pushing upwards through the crust to the surface.

    Periodically, great dust storms engulf the entire planet. The effects of these storms are dramatic, including giant dunes, wind streaks, and wind-carved features.

    Recent NASA exploratory expeditions revealed some of the red planet’s biggest mysteries. This video explains what makes it so different from Earth and what would happen if humans lived there.

    Water on Mars?

    Scientists believe that 3.5 billion years ago, Mars experienced the largest known floods in the solar system. This water may even have pooled into lakes or shallow oceans. But where did the ancient floodwater come from, how long did it last, and where did it go?

    At present, Mars is too cold and its atmosphere is too thin to allow liquid water to exist at the surface for long. There’s water ice close to the surface and more water frozen in the polar ice caps, but the quantity of water required to carve Mars’s great channels and flood plains is not evident on—or near—the surface today. Images from NASA’s Mars Global Surveyor spacecraft suggest that underground reserves of water may break through the surface as springs. The answers may lie deep beneath Mars’s red soil.

    Unraveling the story of water on Mars is important to unlocking its past climate history, which will help us understand the evolution of all planets, including our own. Water is also believed to be a central ingredient for the initiation of life; the evidence of past or present water on Mars is expected to hold clues about past or present life on Mars, as well as the potential for life elsewhere in the universe. And, before humans can safely go to Mars, we need to know much more about the planet’s environment, including the availability of resources such as water.

    Mountains, Moons, and More

    Mars has some remarkable geological characteristics, including the largest volcanic mountain in the solar system, Olympus Mons ; volcanoes in the northern Tharsis region that are so huge they deform the planet’s roundness; and a gigantic equatorial rift valley, the Valles Marineris. This canyon system stretches a distance equivalent to the distance from New York to Los Angeles; Arizona’s Grand Canyon could easily fit into one of the side canyons of this great chasm.

    Mars also has two small moons, Phobos and Deimos. Although no one knows how they formed, they may be asteroids snared by Mars’s gravity.

    Cuba Travel Guide

    Immaculate beaches and verdant hills, wildlife-rich rainforests and tumbling waterfalls, imposing mountain ranges and vibrant cities, all wrapped in defiantly Revolutionary politics; the island of Cuba can rightfully claim to be one of the most singular destinations on the planet.

    The largest and most populous island in the Caribbean. Cuba’s 1959 socialist revolution and the subsequent US trade embargo has frozen the island in time; vintage American cars still roar through the ramshackle streets of its cities, while horses and carts clatter through the countryside.

    The capital, Havana. serves up a heady mix of dilapidation and debauchery. It is a city where beautifully restored colonial buildings rub shoulders with the rundown tenements of regular Cubans. The contrasts can be stark, but Havana s ubiquitous salsa rhythms, uninhibited dancing and potent cocktails galvanise the city and make for an enthralling urban experience unlike any other.

    Cuba s other cities are experiences in themselves. Santiago de Cuba is a veritable melting pot of Afro-Caribbean cultures, where pastel covered buildings meet grand cathedrals. And then there s Trinidad, which offers a snapshot of a bygone era with its cobblestone streets, faded colonial fa ades and charming courtyards.

    Delightful though these cities are, for many visitors Cuba s greatest allure is its beaches. Christopher Columbus described the sandy coast of Guardalavaca as the most beautiful land I have ever seen, and you can see why he was so taken the improbably white sands and warm turquoise waters are exquisite. Others prefer to head inland and gaze upon the verdant, limestone peaks of Vi ales, where Cuba s famous tobacco is cultivated.

    As Cuba slowly opens up to the West, modern resorts have become increasingly common, but the most rewarding stays are in casa particulares. These private homestays offer a true insight into everyday Cuban life, which you won t get in a hotel.

    Though travelling around Cuba can be challenging, the country s affable climate, captivating history, beautiful beaches, swinging salsa rhythms and ubiquitous mojitos are fair compensation indeed.

    Travel Advice

    Last updated: 01 December 2015

    The travel advice summary below is provided by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in the UK. ‘We’ refers to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. For their full travel advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice .

    Crime

    To reduce the risk of theft from luggage during baggage handling, both on arrival and departure, remove all valuables, lock suitcases and if possible have them shrink-wrapped before check-in.

    There are a small number of bogus tour agents and taxi drivers operating at the airports and around Old Havana. Don t travel with anyone other than your tour operator. If you need to take a taxi, make sure it s a registered one and not a private vehicle.

    Car-related crime and muggings occur from time to time, not only in Havana but also in Santiago de Cuba and other areas. Take care in central Havana at night. Use a taxi rather than walk, even if you re only a few blocks away from your destination. There have been attacks on foreigners in hire cars after their tyres have been deliberately punctured. If you get a puncture in a remote area, drive on to a town before stopping. Don t stop for hitch-hikers as they ve also been known to carry out attacks.

    Beware of pickpockets and bag-snatchers, especially in Old Havana, on public transport, at major tourist sites and in nightclubs. Don t carry large amounts of cash, avoid wearing expensive jewellery and leave valuables in the hotel safe. Carry a copy of your passport and lock the original away. Beware of thefts from rooms, particularly in private guest houses ( casas particulares ). Hi-tech items like phones and laptops are highly sought after in Cuba and are particularly attractive to thieves

    Road travel

    You will need a valid UK Driving Licence to drive in Cuba. If you rent a car make sure the insurance includes local third party cover.

    All drivers and passengers of motorcycles and scooters are required by law to wear a crash helmet. In view of serious accidents that have involved tourists, you should not use mopeds or three wheel Coco-Taxis for travel around Cuba.

    Driving standards are variable. Many vehicles, including public transport, are badly maintained. Roads are poorly lit and sign-posted. Beware of cyclists, potholes and cars that stop without warning to pick up hitch-hikers. Vehicles that break down are often left on the road until repairs can be made.Avoid driving at night, when animals and unlit vehicles are a real danger.

    Don t drink and drive.

    If you re involved in a serious traffic accident the police investigation may take several months to resolve. During this time you will normally not be allowed to leave Cuba and may even be detained. If convicted of killing someone in a road traffic accident, you can expect to receive a very lengthy prison sentence. If you do have a serious accident, contact the British Embassy as soon as possible.

    Radio taxis are generally reliable. Avoid private taxis and the older model private cars being offered as taxis which lack proper licencing and modern safety features.

    Air travel

    There are concerns about standards of maintenance of public transport. The FCO can t offer advice on the safety of individual airlines. However, the International Air Transport Association publishes a list of registered airlines that have been audited and found to meet a number of operational safety standards and recommended practices. This list is not exhaustive and the absence of an airline from this list doesn t necessarily mean that it s unsafe.

    In 2008 the International Civil Aviation Organisation carried out an audit of the level of implementation of the critical elements of safety oversight in Cuba.

    You can find a list of recent incidents and accidents on the website of the Aviation Safety network .

    Political situation

    Cuba is a one-party state. There is a high level of social control and a strong police presence. There are widespread restrictions on freedom of speech, association and assembly for Cuban nationals. Political demonstrations or gatherings not sanctioned by the government may be broken up. You should avoid demonstrations or large public gatherings.

    Primary Focus:

    Effective Medication Use
    To assure the meaningful use of standardized electronic health records (EHR) that supports safe, efficient, and effective medication use, continuity of care, and provide access to the patient-care services of pharmacists with other members of the interdisciplinary patient care team.

    Pharmacist’s Role in HIT
    To assure the pharmacist’s role of providing patient-care services are integrated into the National HIT interoperable framework.

    The Collaborative’s Guiding Principles

    • Identify (through the consensus work of expert panelists) the minimum data set and functional electronic health record (EHR) requirements for the delivery, documentation, and billing of pharmacist-provided medication management services. Such requirements include access to key medical information such as laboratory data, and bidirectional communication flow among all practitioners;
    • Structure and support implementation of a Pharmacy Practitioner HIT roadmap (Roadmap). The Roadmap is a document that directs and establishes benchmarks. These benchmarks will describe the development, implementation and application of technology in an efficient and effective manner for pharmacists to affect improved medication use;
    • Build cooperative relationships within pharmacy and among pharmacy and other stakeholders to communicate and advocate for the Pharmacy Practitioner minimum data set and Roadmap leading to a certified EHR as defined in the Federal Register [1] .
    • Ensure pharmacy representation on key HIT-related committees and workgroups.
