Punya Penyakit Celiac, Penumpang ANA Hanya diberi Satu Buah Pisang

first_imgSaat penerbangan tersebut, penumpang lainnya diberikan makanan penuh ala Inggris untuk sarapan. “Saya didatangi seorang pramugari, di berkata ‘Kami menyediakan makanan spesial untuk Anda,’ dan saat itu saya mendapat kan pisang,” ujar Pavelka.www.dailymail.co.ukKemudian dia bertanya kepada pramugari “Apakah ini sebuah lelucon?” dan pramugari hanya berkata , “Saya benar-benar minta maaf, itu makanan bebas gluten.” Menurut Pavelka, dengan sebuah pisang tidak akan membuatnya kenyang, apalagi dalam penerbangan jarak jauh. Dirinya juga mengaku telah melakukan pengaduan kepada maskapai, tetapi belum mendapat tanggapan. “Penumpang lain melihat dan menertawakan saya. Saya pikir pramugari menyadari hal yang tidak beres. Kesalahannya pasti ada di satu bagian manajemen,” ujarnya.Baca juga: Nikmati Perjalanan dengan Makanan dan Minuman SehatDalam menanggapi kasus ini, All Nippon Airwasy (ANA), mengatakan bahwa pisang adalah makanan ringan bebas gluten yang disediakan dalam penerbangan, tetapi bukan makanan untuk Pavelka. Juru bicara ANA mengatakan, pihaknya sangat bangga dalam memberikan pengalaman yang baik bagi semua penumpang apalagi untuk Pavelka.Makanan yang ada di All Nippon Airways“Kami telah meminta maaf kepadanya secara pribadi dan sebagai hasil dari pengalamannya, kami meninjau kebijakan kami mengenai pilihan bebas gluten dan bagaimana layanan mereka. Selama penerbangan internasional di rute Tokyo-Sydney, ada dua layanan makanan. Pelayanan pertama adalah makanan lengkap satu jam setelah keberangkatan dan yang kedua adalah layanan kudapan dua jam sebelum kedatangan”, ujar juru bicara ANA.Baca juga: Mau Jadi Penumpang Sempurna? Sebaiknya Baca IniPihaknya mengatakan, untuk mengakomodasi berbagai kebutuhan makanan penumpang, sebenarnya ada beberapa pilihan makana termasuk bebas gluten yang bisa penumpang pilih saat membeli tiket. Seperti contoh masalah Pavelka yang memesan makanan bebas gluten dan makanan ringannya yang juga bebas gluten. Saat itu, Pavelka memilih pisang untuk makanan bebas gluten.“Kami berusaha semaksimal mungkin untuk memenuhi kebutuhan penumpang dan dalam situasi ini, kami mengakomodasi permintaan makanan tambahan tamu kami dengan menyediakan makanan reguler tambahan serta hidangan pembuka dari menu reguler untuk makanan ringannya. Untuk menyiratkan bahwa ANA hanya melayani pisang untuk penerbangan dengan panjang ini tidak benar,”ujar juru bicara ANA.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… Related Hal konyol terjadi pada seorang penumpang maskapai All Nippon Airways (ANA) dalam penerbangan dari Tokyo, Jepang menuju Sydney, Australia.

Jockeys Adam Short and Donal McInerney travel to Australia this Sunday for 2018 Australia…

first_imgThis is the 32nd consecutive year that an Irish team has been invited to Australia to participate in the jockey challenge. There have already been 42 contests staged in the two countries, with Ireland taking the honours on 26 occasions, Australia winning 15 times and one draw. HRI Wed 22 August 2018NH Jockeys on team for Australia trip.Donal McInerney and Adam ShortPhoto.carolinenorris.ie The series, which is based on a points system depending on the finishing positions, was won by Team Ireland last year on a score of 55 points to 35.President of Ireland, Michael D. Higgins has sent his well wishes to the team prior to their departure: “I send my best wishes to Adam Short, Donal McInerney, Shane Jackson and Martin Kelly as they prepare to compete in the Australia v Ireland Challenge Series in Adelaide.  The Series symbolises the long and enduring friendship between Ireland and Australia, one that rests not only the long history of Irish migration to Australia, but upon our shared love of sport, from rugby to horse racing.“Ever since the Series began in 1986, Irish and Australian jockeys have displayed skill and dedication in representing their countries, and I have no doubt that the competition will excite and delight all those fortunate enough to attend.”This year’s race series will take place at Morphettville Racecourse on Irish Day, Saturday September 1 where the teams will compete in two races, a hurdle and steeplechase, for the coveted title.Andrew Coonan, Secretary to the Irish Jockeys Association, commented: “This is a wonderful opportunity for Adam and Donal, two very talented riders. We have already seen their ability on show in Ireland so I am delighted that they now have the opportunity to show off their talent in another top racing jurisdiction. I am sure they will be well received by their hosts in Australia.”Brian Kavanagh, Chief Executive of Horse Racing Ireland, said: “I’d like to wish the Irish team the best of luck in this year’s Australian challenge.  It’s a big honour to be chosen to represent your country and I am sure that Adam, Donal, Shane and Martin will do us proud.”Nominated by Thoroughbred Racing South Australia, respected jumps jockeys Martin Kelly and Shane Jackson live and work in Australia.  Martin has ridden 50 winners, including Von Doussa and Great Eastern Steeplechases aboard champion jumper Thubiaan and is arguably in career best form with 15 wins in the 2017/18 season. Shane’s feature victories have included the Lafferty Hurdle and Australian Steeplechase aboard Wilde’s successful jumper Gold Medals and also won this year’s Grand National Hurdle aboard Cougar Express.Jim Watters, CEO, Thoroughbred Racing SA, commented: “The Australia v Ireland Jockey Challenge is always highly anticipated by both the jockeys and the spectators, and while we are thrilled to be welcoming two up and coming stars of Irish jumps racing to Australian shores, we hope that the Australian team of Lee Horner, Richard Cully, Braidon Small and Rob David can reverse last year’s result and keep the Challenge trophy in Australia this time around.”CLICK HERE FOR LINK TO VIDEO AND QUOTES FROM ADAM SHORT AND DONAL MCINERNEYJockey Profiles – Team IrelandAdam ShortFrom Newtownmountkennedy, County Wicklow, Adam rode his first winner on the Stuart Crawford-trained Comragh at Ayr in November 2015. He rode his 20th winner and had his claim reduced to 5lbs when landing the €100,000 Chanelle Pharma Handicap Chase on Liz Doyle’s Last Goodbye on the second day of the inaugural Dublin Racing Festival at Leopardstown in February 2018, by far his biggest winner to date.Adam secured the prize of a trip to Australia for the annual jockeys’ challenge when winning the Adare Manor Opportunity Series for the 2016/2017 Irish National Hunt season. He rounded off the term with success in the final of the race of the series on the Matthew Smith-trained Prince Garyantle at the Punchestown festival, his first success at the biggest festival of the year.Adam began his career with Philip Rothwell at 17 and soon moved to Northern Ireland to link up with Stuart Crawford who provided him with his first career winner on his first ride for the stable. He is associated with several racing yards and rode a Galway festival winner for former champion trainer Noel Meade this year.Donal McInerneyFrom Herbertstown, County Limerick, Donal rode out for trainers Enda Bolger and John Gleeson while at school and worked for Charles Byrnes for a year after completing his Leaving Certificate in 2012 before joining Robert Tyner. He has worked for Bolger on a full-time basis since 2015 and while he failed to ride a winner on the track as an amateur rider, his luck changed straight away when he turned professional. Just two days after gaining his licence, he partnered the Enda Bolger-trained Auvergnat to win the PP Hogan Memorial Cross Country Chase at Punchestown on Sunday, February 5th, 2017. It was his first ride in the paid ranks.Donal enjoyed a terrific start to his professional career and less than 15 months after his initial success, he was crowned champion conditional rider for the 2017/18 season with a total of 33 winners, seven winners clear of his nearest pursuer JJ Slevin. Donal also rode a winner at this year’s Punchestown festival when Auvergnat, the horse that gave him his first winner, won the historic La Touche Cup over the famed banks’ course. He has enjoyed a fine run of success ever since and is well on target to better last season’s tally.Shane JacksonFrom Baltinglass, County Wicklow, Shane was Champion Conditional Jockey in Ireland in 2007/08 season. He started riding in Australia in 2012, and rides most for Warrnambool trainer Symon Wilde.  Having ridden 46 winners, his feature victories have included the Lafferty Hurdle and Australian Steeplechase aboard Wilde’s successful jumper Gold Medals and also won this year’s Grand National Hurdle aboard Cougar Express.Martin KellyOriginally from Kilmore Quay, Martin was a graduate of RACE and learned his trade under Jim Dreaper. He started riding in Australia in 2009, and has ridden 50 winners, including von Doussa and Great Eastern Steeplechases at the famous Oakbank Easter Racing Carnivals aboard champion jumper Thubiaan for Eric Musgrove. Arguably in career best form with 15 wins in the 2017/18 season. Jockeys Adam Short and Donal McInerney will fly out to Australia this Sunday, August 26, to join Australian-based jockeys Martin Kelly and Shane Jackson to make up the Irish team for the 2018 Australia v Ireland Jockey Challenge.

Mayo footballers bid to end losing streak against Galway

first_imgThe extraordinary ebb and flow of provincial superiority between old rivals Galway and Mayo goes back well over a century. In terms of Connacht championship titles, Galway have regained the edge on the roll of honour table 47-46 after beating Mayo for the last 3 years. The first of those wins (2016) stoppped Mayo in their efforts at an historic 6 in a row of Connacht titles. Perhaps Galway manager Kevin Walsh had the Indian sign over then Mayo manager Stephen Rochford, winning all 5 of their head to head meetings, but you could probably say the same thing about James Horan when he was first in charge of Mayo from 2010 to 2014. Horan has never lost to Galway as manager in 3 championship and 1 national league meeting, but that record will be on the line in Tuam Stadium next Sunday (1.30pm) when the sides clash in the semi final of the FBD League. After beating Mayo in both the national league and championship in 2008, Galway would have to wait 8 years for their next win over the ‘old enemy’ and when it arrived in surprising fashion in the 2016 Connacht semi final, it sparked a complete turn in fortunes with the Tribesmen now having won the last 5 meetings. Can James Horan resume where he left off with his 100% record intact, or will Kevin Walsh make it six wins on the bounce against Mayo? Something has to give next Sunday. Is it not time we had a draw? I wonder have Galway been practising their penalties since last weekend….

That last happened in 2010, when a flurry of late points helped Mayo to a 0-12 to 0-9 victory and the sides would not meet again until last year when the 5 Connacht counties played each other in a new round robin format and Galway were to edge out Mayo by a point, despite finishing the game with only 12 players.last_img read more

Bolton players threaten to boycott Brentford clash over unpaid wages

first_img LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS no dice 1 Bolton’s season has been beset by financial problems, with the PFA forced to intervene and pay wages earlier this term.Earlier this month, the players went on a 48-hour strike on behalf of non-playing staff who went unpaid for March. According to the Bolton News, such action could be boycotting tomorrow’s visit of Brentford to the University of Bolton Stadium.Wanderers were relegated from the second division last week after a 2-0 defeat by Aston Villa. A couple of days prior, former Watford owner Laurence Bassini agreed a deal to buy Bolton from Ken Anderson, subject to EFL approval.Anderson had long been looking to sell the club, and he claimed to have accepted offers valued at lower than what his shares were worth. REPLY Bolton’s penultimate match of the Championship season may not go ahead with the players threatening to boycott over unpaid wages.Wanderers’ players have gone 27 days without their salaries, and the lack of assurances over a resolution to the situation has caused the dressing room to take drastic action.

Web 2.0 Weekly Wrap-up, 14-20 Feb 2005

first_imgWhy Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Related Posts richard macmanus A look back at the week that was in the world of Web 2.0. This week: Google’s AutoLinks feature, IE7, NY Times buys About.com, more Big Media blogging coverage, Bloglines hacks.AutoLinks and AnnotationEver since Google made it big, many people have been looking for a chance to pin the‘evil’ label on them – especially as one of their company philosophies is to‘do no evil’. This week some folks pounced on Google for adding an AutoLink feature to its GoogleToolbar. The issue? It has similarities to a controversial old Microsoft featurecalled SmartTags. According to Google, AutoLink is this:“The online review of a great new restaurant has the place’s address but no map. Youcould type the restaurant’s street, city, and ZIP code into the search box, but whybother, when clicking the Toolbar’s AutoLink button will automatically create a link toan online map (US addresses only)? AutoLink can also link package tracking numbers todelivery status, VIN numbers (US) to vehicle history, and publication ISBN numbers toAmazon.com listings.”What’s getting folks riled up is that AutoLinks enables Google to create links totheir own content, using your webpage as the context. According to CNet News:“…trademark attorneys and security experts say that AutoLink could face problems,because Google modifies the underlying HTML of a Web page to deliver the addedlinks.”There’s a beauty of a conspiracy theory attached to this too. Slashdot explains:“Jeff Reynar – was the lead SmartTag Program Manager while at MS and is reportedly nowa Google Product Manager who’s being credited as AutoLink’s creator.”The most interesting thing about this for me is the annotation angle.Annotation has long been a desired feature for web browsers – e.g. the W3C’sbrowser/editor Amaya has extensive annotationfeatures. Anil Dashis one person keen on annotation in this manner – he suggested on his blog (also quoted by CNet) that “once your HTML page gets to my machine, it’s mine to rip, mix andburn.”.Is That IE7 In Your Pocket, Or Are You Just Pleased To See Me?Speaking of browsers… the much anticipated Internet Explorer 7 was announced by Microsoftthis week. Only trouble is, there’s little evidence of innovation. The upgradeseems to be mostly about improved security. Also the beta IE7 won’t be available until“this summer” (US summer that is). So, like, what’s to get excited about? Or as Imentioned in Scoble’s commentssection: “What, no read/write browser? No RSS aggregation? Where’s the innovation,c’mon…”To be fair, maybe there will be some innovation in the backend – as Jeremy Wrightsuggests. But I’d like to see some real ground broken, for a change…NY Times Buys About.com – Gains Web 2.0 Street CredThe New York Times announced they will buy About.com for$410 million. There was a great meme going round the week leading up this: About.comrepresents blogging 1.0, whereas the likes of weblogsinc and Gawker are blogging 2.0. Mytake on that theory ishere. Nevertheless lots of people think the NY Times deal was a good one for the venerable newspaper. Mypicks for in-depth analysis: SusanMernit, paidcontent.org(plus audiointerview), VC FredWilson, John Battelle(great headline too! “About The New York Times: Deep Into Web 2.0 Now”), JayRosen, NY Times article.Key Quotes:MartinNisenholtz, CEO of New York Times Digital: “The model we’ve acquired is a web 2.0model; it’s not a centralized model, it’s a decentralized model where the content iscreated by passionate individuals who have a competency and a desire to reach the publicand that scales into many, many categories and it scales potentiallygeographically.”(emphasis mine)Fred Wilson nailsit: “If the content that is created on the edges starts to show up in the middle and thecontent that is created in the middle starts to show up on the edges, that will be a bigdeal.”John Battelle: “I thinkmicrocontent is key to winning in the Web 2.0 publishing world.” [and] “As Martin told mewhen I pinged him after the deal: ‘We’re deep into Web 2.0 now.’”JayRosen: “The second life of content, made possible by search, is of criticalimportance to journalists whose work is on the Web. (That’s almost all journalists.)”Big Media Blogging Coverage – Chicken Bloggers OutedAhhh, a warm fuzzies AssociatedPress article about SixApart: “The couple’s odd chemistry cooked up Six Apart Ltd., astartup that has helped popularize the “blogging” craze, with millions of peopleworldwide maintaining online personal journals that dissect everything from politics topoultry.” Poultry??In other news Weblogs Inc was named as one ofBusinessWeek’s FiveNet Names to Watch in ’05, which founder Jason Calacanis wasobviously chuffed about.Commenting on the above two stories, Slashdot notes: “Business Press Pays Attention To Blog Industry”.Techy Web 2.0 HighlightsRather than a single techy post, it was two bits of Web 2.0 hackery that caught myattention this week. Firstly, Erik Bensonmanaged to convert his entire weblog into a Bloglines API-powered site:“I made a folder in Bloglines that has all of the RSS feeds around the web that havestuff that I’ve written/done. Then I used the Bloglines Web Service to get an aggregated,normalized feed of all my content in one stream…”He explainshow he did it in a later post (nb: I noted in the comments that it’d be cool to makethis available to us non-programmers via an easy-to-use web service).Speaking of Bloglines (which I nearly always doin these weekly wrap-ups), Joshua Tyler has created a neat app called Chameleon, built using the BloglinesWeb Services. It’s basically an alternative interface to Bloglines and has some niftypersonalization features, such as keeping track of “which feeds you read, how often, andwhen”. I’ve had a play round with it and it’s a great example of value-add using a publicly available API.SummaryThat’s it for another week. As always, I value your feedback. Please leave a commentor send me an email at readwriteweb AT gmail DOT com.

Skydeck Puts Your Cell Phone Online

first_imgWhy IoT Apps are Eating Device Interfaces Tags:#mobile#Product Reviews#Real World#web frederic lardinois What it Takes to Build a Highly Secure FinTech … Related Posts center_img Role of Mobile App Analytics In-App Engagement Cell phone providers hold a wealth of information about your real-world social network in their records that you can theoretically access through their cumbersome web interfaces. None of the cell phone companies we are aware of do a good job at presenting this information in a meaningful way, however. This is where Skydeck comes in. Skydeck, which released a major update to its service this morning, can access your provider’s call data, as well as your text messages and voicemail. For a fee, Skydeck will also transcribe your voicemails and allow you to make calls directly from Skydeck’s web interface.As Skydeck’s CEO and co-founder Jason Devitt pointed out to us last year, the inspiration for Skydeck came from a desire to take control of the data about your “true social network (that) is hidden in your communication records.” When we first spoke to Devitt, Skydeck was ‘just’ a Firefox extension. Since then, Skydeck has moved away from the browser extension and now gets all its data directly from the cell phone companies, similar to what Mint does for financial records. To make use of this service, you will have to give Skydeck the login credentials for your cell phone provider, however.Your Cell Phone, Online Thanks to its latest updates, Skydeck not only lets you access and respond to all your text messages and voicemails, but also lets you sync the contact data on your cell phone to the web. Skydeck’s interface is similar to a standard email interface, with your messages displayed in chronological order, no matter if they were calls, text messages, or voicemails. At regular intervals, Skydeck syncs up with your cell phone accounts and downloads the relevant information to its servers.BlackBerry, Android, Windows MobileAll of this this, however, works best on Blackberry and Android phones, with full support for Windows Mobile coming soon (the basic features work on any phone, however). So far, there is no word about support for the iPhone. Make Calls From the Web Skydeck’s most interesting new feature is probably its ability to make calls right from the web browser. Unlike similar solutions like Google’s GrandCentral, Skydeck doesn’t give you a new phone number, which means that your own cell phone number will appear on the caller ID.Skydeck also integrates with Plaxo, so that you can easily sync your address book between the two applications.PlansSkydeck has three monthly plans. The free demo account lets you manage your contacts, and access your basic call data, but you won’t be able to make calls, access your voicemail, or get transcriptions of your voicemail. For $9.95 a month, you get all of these features, but you pay 3 cents per minute for every call within the U.S. and voicemail transcriptions cost 20 cents each. Skydeck’s unlimited plan, with unlimited calling and as many voicemail transcriptions as you could ever want, will set you back $29.95 per month.VerdictSkydeck is simply an incredibly useful service. It has far more features than we could even touch upon in this review (like organizing your contacts by how often you call them). In many ways, it is providing a service for your cell phone that we would have hoped to see from Google’s GrandCentral. The Rise and Rise of Mobile Payment Technologylast_img read more
