Somewhere in spacea U-wing transport carrying a high value prisoner is escorted to the Mon Calamari Security Cruiser Invincible Faith by two A-wing interceptors. A rebel officerhaving profiled the prisoner, warns the ship's captain that she is highly trained in deception, infiltration, and extraction: He asks her to hand over an access code for her droidbut she doesn't respond. The captain proceeds to implore her to join the Rebel Alliancewarning her that his technicians will slice her droid either way and that the Galactic Empire 's time has come, to which she replies that he's right:
A second record-breaking tourism year is expected for Bermuda with almostpeople taking holidays here in the first nine months.
The Bermuda Tourism Authority said its latest figures showed an eleventh consecutive quarter of growth for leisure air arrivals and spending. Performance in that area is up 26 per cent in arrivals and up 35 per cent in spending since the streak of quarterly growth began back in January By any measure, that is a remarkable performance that every member of our team and every one of our stakeholders can be very proud of.
When cruise ship passengers were included,people had visited the island for holidays and leisure travel by the end of September.
That is nearly 82, more than the same period in and an increase of 36, or 6. However, leisure visitors during the month of September alone have been falling over the past three years, from 57, into 54, and 51, in and respectively.
The latest figure represents a 5. Hotel occupancy and vacation rental stays were also said to have increased when compared to the same period last year. The BTA pointed out that available airline seats to Bermuda appeared to be slowing, with a 2. However, it said air capacity remains up almost four per cent over the nine months.
If that trend reverses it would be an obstacle for further growth.
Political interference has been suggested by the Opposition in legislation granting the tourism minister extra clout over the leadership and the direction of the Bermuda Tourism Authority.
The BTA declined to comment last night. Jessica Mello is the deputy chairwoman of the BTA, which is publicly financed but operates independently. That is the highest number of visitors to the island in its recorded history, and the best statistical performance dating back to People like Mr Dallas, who possess creative genius, are non-conventional and outspoken.
It appears that when individuals have the ability to think independently, are able to manage successfully what has been entrusted to them, and are unable to be controlled by the Government, the Government feels the need to amend the legislation to empower the minister.
Ms Scott noted that in Januarythe Bermuda Sun reported that Ewart Brown, the former premier, had been accused of political interference in the appointment of Emilygail Dill to be the new acting head of tourism for North America. The tourism minister is to be given greater say over the Bermuda Tourism Authority under legislation tabled at the convening of the House of Assembly.
The amendment would have board members appointed by the minister, after consultation with the board. A second amendment empowers the minister to appoint a deputy chairman of the BTA. Mr Simmons said at that time: We are providing funding for these entities and while we will respect their independence, which should be based on their expertise in their respective fields, there has to be a measure of policy direction when and if necessary.
Tourists waited up to an hour for public transport yesterday as Bermuda welcomed a record number of cruise ship passengers. Long queues formed at bus and ferry stops in Dockyard, where two cruise ships were berthed and a third was anchored at nearby Grassy Bay.
It meant up until the Carnival Conquest left at 4pm, a record one-day total of 9, cruise ship passengers were expected around the island. Some were caught in long queues as they waited for transport from Dockyard to Hamilton or the South Shore beaches. Cao Wilson, from New York, said: The infrastructure is not up to the standard for all these tourists.
Sara Kitts, 42, from Raleigh, North Carolina, and her husband, Rick, 44, spent their honeymoon in Bermuda and returned on the Disney Magic yesterday with children Richie, 12, and Jesse, They queued for transport to Horseshoe Bay but when a bus arrived it filled up with passengers before they had a chance to embark.
Ms Kitts was told another bus would collect them, which was expected to mean a total wait of nearly 45 minutes. She told The Royal Gazette: It was at least another ten minutes before the ferry left Dockyard. But The Bermudian, which has a capacity ofmanaged to clear most of the queue when it set sail at about He explained it was important to recognize the different needs of cruise ship passengers as some, like those on the Disney Magic, were more likely to arrange tours and activities before they disembarked, which meant less pressure on transport services.
But minutes later Mr Robinson and a colleague co-ordinated a private hire pick-up from a public bus stop. A spokeswoman said reports showed at about indirect impacts of the construction, operation, and taxation of casinos are significantly positive.
Broader economic costs relating to such factors as the use of government services and changes in property values are not insignificant, but they do not come close to canceling out the more conventional.
