first_imgThe high street coffee chain has confirmed it will be opening the two new Somerset stores by April. The openings will create between eight and ten jobs.A Costa spokesman said: “The stores will be run by one of our franchise partners, a local businessperson to the area, who will do all that they can to integrate the new store with the local community, getting involved with events; providing the store as a meeting place and helping with fundraising.”As reported in its recent full year update, expansion continues apace for Costa, both for stores and for its Costa Express machines, of which there are already over 5,000, with a further 1,000 planned this year.For its new stores, the operator is increasingly opting for locations away from traditional high streets, with travel hubs, drive-throughs and retail park sites set to account for the majority of openings over 2016/17.last_img read more

first_img Off Season Camping at Virginia State Parks  Caledon State Park too provides big adventure close to home. The park is renowned for its bald eagle habitat and is one of the best places in the country to watch the birds. Six primitive sites along the Potomac are accessible by a 3-mile hike from the parking area near the visitor center or by boat at the canoe landing.   Sky Meadows at the foothills of the Appalachian Trail and the crest of the Blue Ridge provides an ideal setting for beginner backpackers and those looking for a quick escape.  Walk-in backpackers can fill out registration tags and hit the trail just beyond the parking area immediately adjacent to the contact station. A 1-mile hike up hill is all that separates you from backcountry bliss at this point. Just a short trot from the AT, overnight trips can easily turn into multi-day adventures from here. Belle Isle State Park is also near the top of the list.  At the edge of Brewer’s Point, tucked just behind the pines on the shore of the Rappahannock River are four designated primitive sites perfect for year-round adventuring. It’s roughly a 1.5-mile hike in from the nearest parking area, but Belle Isle offers nearly 10 miles of trails for you to explore. Wander the park all day and then head to your camp before sunset for dinner and a show—The Rapp. is about 3.5 miles wide west from your camp toward the sunset. •   Douthat    •   Shenandoah River If you can’t leave the RV just yet, or if a tent isn’t in the cards for you—fear not. Virginia State Parks offer four year-round, full service campgrounds.  For more information and to find a camp to call home, visit http://virginiastateparks.gov/camping. Reservations are accepted for many of our primitive sites through Reserve America. Reservations can also be made by calling 800-933-PARK (7275).   Park at the designated overnight area at Little Island City Park and take Sandpiper Road about a mile to the gated beach access trail. From here, it’s another 5-7 miles of wide open Atlantic beach to your campsite. Twenty-six sites across four distinct campgrounds provide a truly unique experience. Beachfront sites offer incredible sunrises and ocean side views, but beware the tides and biting flies. You’ll need to know how to anchor your shelter in the sand and have to manage with the coastal winds, but during fair weather and favorable tides, these sites are hard to beat. Back into the dunes, campsites are nestled under the sprawling low-growth live oaks—a hammock campers dream—and have enough ground space for a tent and the provided picnic table. These are coupled to a corresponding beach site in the event of extreme high tides and guarantee you’ll have a place to sleep. Bayside sites are situated along the Back Bay and provide easy access to a dock/kayak launch. These sites are more open and give you a front row view of the best sunset in Virginia. Lastly, the newly installed interior sites are located nearer to the visitor center in the pristine maritime forest with soft, pine covered sandy soil. center_img James River State Park’s Canoe Landing camp ground is a riverside gem. Thirteen tent-only sites surrounded by huge sycamores dot the James River. The Canoe Landing sites are right next to the boat launch and fit nicely in a multi-day James River float trip, but for those driving, parking is close enough for you to tote in your cooler to camp. Each site comes with a fire ring and picnic table, but no tent pads are provided. This is a nice place to learn to rough it while still being within eye sight of your transportation and whatever additional supplies you might need. Backpacking Season Doesn’t Have to End •   Pocahontas  False Cape State Park is one of the most—if not the most remote place in the state. Insulated from the hustle of Virginia Beach and Sandbridge to the north, False Cape sits on the VA/NC boarder behind the vast stretches of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. April-October, the park is accessible through the refuge via the bayside trails. From November-February, however, the refuge is closed to visitors and the park is accessible only via the Terra Gator shuttle service or by human-powered transport. Sky Meadows, Caledon, and Belle Isle’s primitive sites are all accessible by bike, but for those looking for a really out of this world experience, we recommend pedaling your way down to False Cape. Fewer people provide more solitude, bare trees reveal new landscapes and colder temperatures bring new sensations to your favorite adventure locations. Personally, we’re in it for lack of bugs, but there’s no one right reason to get out this winter and spend some time in nature.  Looking for something more adventurous?

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York The U.S. Army is refusing to allow a Hofstra University student and practicing Sikh to enlist in an on-campus military program until he complies with its grooming policies, which are in violation of his religion, according to a lawsuit filed this week.Iknoor Singh, a sophomore, can’t enlist in the Reserve Officer Training Corps (ROTC) program until he shaves his beard, cuts his hair and removes his turban, according to the American Civil Liberties Union, which filed the suit on his behalf.Singh is seeking a religious exemption so he can pursue his “lifelong dream of serving in the Army,” the ACLU said. The suit argues that a denial of religious exemption violates the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, passed in 1993.When Singh attempted to enlist he was told he couldn’t unless he complied with the Army’s grooming and uniform rules, he wrote in a post on the ACLU’s website.“I couldn’t believe the military was asking me to make the impossible decision of choosing between the country I love and my faith,” he wrote.He’s arguing that the Army has a history of accommodating soldiers’ requests based on religion. He also noted that female soldiers are permitted to have long hair “provided that they keep it neat and out of the way.”Sikhs, he said, have often been mistaken for Muslims and discriminated against after the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks, and “barring us from serving in the military because of our religious practices helps reinforce these hurtful stereotypes.”The Hofstra student speaks three other languages aside from English—Punjabi, Hindi, and Urdu—and is determined to become a military intelligence officer, the ACLU said.The suit claims that upon Singh’s first religion accommodation request he was told it would “undermine readiness, unit cohesion, standards, health, safety, and discipline.” Army officials then told him they couldn’t decide on his request because he never formally enlisted.Students enlisted in campus ROTC programs can eventually become officers in the U.S. Army, Army Reserve or Army National Guard.“Choosing between one’s faith and serving one’s country is a choice that no one should have to make,” Singh said.An Army spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.last_img read more

first_imgRelatedPosts Bayern Munich fans undergo Super Cup coronavirus tests Suarez agrees Atletico terms Barca president Bartomeu says he won’t go to war anymore with Messi Atletico Madrid pulled off a stunning turnaround to beat FC Barcelona 3-2 in an enthralling Spanish Super Cup tie in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia on Thursday. They thus booked their place in the final of the revamped competition where they will face Real Madrid on Sunday. Argentine forward Angel Correa struck the decisive goal in the 86th minute to complete an unlikely late comeback for Atletico Madrid. That was after Barca had dominated the second half and had two goals ruled out following VAR reviews. Substitute Koke had put Atletico Madrid in front at the start of the second half, but Lionel Messi levelled in the 51st minute. Messi soon put the ball in the net again but his second effort was ruled out for handball following a VAR review. Former Atletico Madrid striker Antoine Griezmann did put Barca in front in the 65th while Gerard Pique thought he had extended their lead moments later. However, that goal was also ruled out after a VAR review, this time for a fractional offside against Arturo Vidal. Atletico Madrid had spent most of the second half trying to stop waves of Barca attacks but got a lifeline when substitute Vitolo was tripped by goalkeeper Neto. Striker Alvaro Morata then equalised from the penalty kick spot in the 81st minute. Stand-in goalkeeper Neto was also at fault for the winning goal, failing to properly block Correa’s shot, which bounced into the net to cap an incredible match.

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (June 26, 2016)–In his 45th career start, venerable 8-year-old gelding Soi Phet rolled to the lead into the Club House turn and dictated terms throughout as he took Sunday’s $75,000 McCann’s Mojave Handicap by 2 ½ lengths while covering a mile and a sixteenth in 1:40.80–thus turning the tables on runner-up Avanti Bello, who defeated him by a nose in the one mile Tiznow Stakes here May 28.Breaking from the number three post position in a field of five California-bred or sired horses three and up, Soi Phet made the lead while well within himself and set fractions of 23.57, 46.75, 1:10.21 and 1:34.48.Called upon by Desormeaux with three sixteenths of a mile to run, Soi Phet responded eagerly and left Avanti Bello in his wake with a furlong to run.The 9-5 favorite, Soi Phet, who is by Tizbud and is out of the Siberian Summer mare Summer Jersey, paid $5.80, $3.20 and $2.10.“The half in 46 and change is pretty much his natural cruising speed, so if he can do it well within himself, I’ll take it,” said Desormeaux, who had piloted Soi Phet to three consecutive second place finishes. “This horse is a pleasure to ride, he knows what he’s doing out there.”As to what might be in store for his resident senior citizen, Powell said, “There’s some grass racing down at Del Mar for Cal-breds, but he’s eight years old now, so we’ll see how he comes out of this. Every year, if you look back, he does really well in the summer. This year, I won’t run him at all in the winter, just summer and early fall.”Avanti Bello, who was ridden by Rafael Bejarano, was second best on the day and finished 5 ½ lengths in front of El Huerfano. Off at 5-2, he paid $3.40 and $2.40.El Huerfano, who was ridden by Flavien Prat, loomed menacingly while three-wide around the far turn, but backed up readily when he straightened for home and finished three quarters of a length in front of Songforjohnmichael. Off at 7-2, El Huerfano paid $2.40 to show.last_img read more
