    Locating People

    by glassstar Online Now 2 hours ago

    What is a good site for locating former friends and classmates from my time in Britain? Facebook has proved of limited help. Friends Reunited is even less useful. We are talking forty or so years ago here.

    As a military brat who breezed through numerous schools and people's lives briefly, in many global locations, I'm not sure anyone would even remember me but I'm taking a shot at reconnecting with those I knew dating back a few decades.

    In a couple of locations I can contact those who were peripherally friends but can't unearth the two or three I'd consider close friends at the time.

    How do you root out old buddies?

    This photo circulating on Social Media has generated a large response for law enforcement, but there are no arrests yet in the vandalism to an archaeological site known as Jordan Cave near the Jordan Trailhead parking lot in Sedona , according to U.S. Forest Service Law Enforcement Officer Mike O’Neil late Wednesday morning. O'Neil said he has gotten many calls about the vandalism and most have been generated from Facebook. "It's good," he said, but no one has come up with names yet. On Dec. 16, 2014, several individuals in Jordan Cave were seen removing and throwing rocks from the walls of the site over a steep embankment. Some of the rocks were also dug from the prehistoric floor of the site and were thrown over the embankment. Law Enforcement is trying to identify and locate the individuals in the attached photo who might be able to assist in the investigation regarding the vandalism. “These prehistoric sites are rare treasures on our public lands and the Forest Service takes every effort to preserve and protect those resources,” said Patrol Captain Jon Nelson. “Once these sites are damaged, it removes a piece of the puzzle of how past communities lived an existed over time that cannot be replaced. It not only destroys scientific evidence, it denies the public from seeing these areas as they were left by the Pueblo people who lived here centuries ago.” It is illegal to excavate, remove, damage, alter or deface any archaeological resource, to include surface collecting. An archaeological resource is defined as any historic or prehistoric object or resource that is 50 years or older. These acts of vandalism and theft to protected sites are found under the Archaeological Resource Protection Act of 1979, under Title 36 Code of Federal Regulations 261.9(g), which makes it a criminal violation under federal law. The severity of the crime ranges from a Class B Misdemeanor, which is six months in jail and a $5,000 fine, to a felony, which is one year in jail and/or $20,000 fine. Anyone with information regarding this vandalism should contact Officer Mike O’Neil at 928-203-7512.

  • Legal question-pursue this?-dance studio closed down

    by teevee Online Now Jan 9, 2015 at 3:03 PM

    Need legal advice as it is taking time to pursue this:
    1. Signed up for a year's dance class and paid full subscription
    2. Midway, studio is closed notice on the door 'closed indefinitely'. The owner of the building said many warning letters were sent, rent not paid.
    3. Members contacted the owners-directors those that got through, they said give them our email and other details as they want to reimburse...nothing happened after that...it has been a year. Owners are liars.
    4. In the process of filing a consumer tribunal case, find that the name of the studio is not registered with the registrar of companies, but by name of owner he has another studio with another name at another address.
    5. Is there a case?
    Think these people cheat on others knowing the loopholes. Would need to file papers and send them documents including knowing my name, id number and address in the forms to be sent to them to ask them to come for hearing/respond within X days. So mean of them to do this to the innocent.

    If i cannot get money back, how to stop these Buggers from doing it again.

    by Rickyy1 Online Now Jan 5, 2015 at 6:20 PM

    Hello, Could some one please help me get the clear understanding of international SIM card for calls, data and SMS, I had terrible experience with another provider and want to make sure the product meets my requirements before purchasing it. I live in Canada. I am looking for SIM card that will offer the best possible rates in European countries (western and eastern) for talk, text and data, while traveling throughout Europe, allow free roaming between European countries, and allow calls from Europe to Canada (expectation is not necessarily calls to Canada free of fees, but it has to work). If your service requires calls to be made at regular intervals (i.e. every 3 months or whatever) to avoid balance expiry, it is then essential that the card works in Canada as well (acquires wireless connection and allows calling), not just in Europe, as I would have to place these calls while in the country of residence, being Canada. Card will be used in unlocked Samsung Galaxy S5 G900F phone. Questions: Considering the above, is there any product good fit, will it meet all the requirements listed above?

    Regards:
    Rickky

    by hayuitsme Online Now Jan 24, 2015 at 4:09 PM

    Hi Everyone I am new to VT, it looks like a great community :-)

    I asked a similar question in a different part of the forum and realize now this section was probably where I should have posted it.

    Has anyone ever experienced fire or smoke on a plane, cruise or hotel ?
    As a young man I was in a building that caught fire and I have to admit its one of my fears of traveling, the lower fire standards in some tourist destinations and being trapped on a plane or ship if there is a fire or smoke :-(

    The wife and I are planning a big retirement trip, and because of my concerns I have been searching for some protection we can bring with us.
    In my search I came across a disaster mask called Xcaper? Has anyone heard of these? Apparently they are approved for use by US govt.
    Would you carry one?
    Thanks for any advice, or input.

    What country, trip or travel experience has been in a sense life changing for you?

    by melosh Online Now Jan 23, 2015 at 2:54 AM

    Every so often I visit someplace and it seems to change or re-balance my view of the world. As with many on VT, my first real exploration of another country had that impact. For me that was Mexico. But later Italy and then Liberia, West Africa. India followed. And then Mongolia perhaps even more than China. And now, most recently, Bhutan.

    I find myself going through my Bhutan pictures thinking, 'This place really exists and I was blessed with the chance to visit it.' I am re-reading books I read in preparation, even as I prepare for future trips elsewhere.

    For most of these places that I have fallen in love with, I ended up feeling that I will have to re-visit; that I have missed a part that I would like to see or see some more. They kind of go on back on my list of places I want to visit. Sicily, Western Mongolia, many parts of India, the Southern part of South Africa are all still part of this ever changing list. Oddly Bhutan has not made it onto that list. I went thinking my trip would be a once-in-a-lifetime, and now that I am back I am satisfied that it was a once in a lifetime. I expect that my future visits will be purely "virtual".

    I wonder what country or specific place outside your own has had the most personal impact on your life. Of course, for some VT members I can guess or their pages already make it clear. But the when and why may be less obvious. Please share.

    How to help the lonely elderly population?

    by SONG Online Now Jan 22, 2015 at 12:01 PM

    A recent thread discussed the lady who spent $164,000 a year cruising . Claus said he did NOT want
    to have the highlight of his day be watching TV and wondering when he would be fed. However, reality
    proves that this IS how the majority of elderly folks spend their day. My Dad was in an assisted living
    facility (ALF) the last year of his life and that is precisely what happened. He was anemic and too weak
    to walk around. He needed help to even stand up and then sit in his wheelchair. I must say that I visited
    him Every day but still how boring can a life be? I would have gone "stir crazy" and who knows? That
    may be what awaits me also. There are thousands of folks who live alone and no one would know if they
    died because no one contacts them every day. So my heart goes out to all the folks and I wonder WHAT
    can I personally do to help? I would even consider starting some sort of organization (volunteer) to make sure
    contact is made daily and / or a personal visit. I've thought about a "friend chain" among close friends who
    call at least one person per day to tell them everything if OK. If person A did not hear from person B , then
    A could call authorities and alert them. Then of course you have the complication of person A having died. Then who does person B call? And some folks don't even have a "friend chain" because they
    have outlived their contemporaries. What are you ideas and suggestions? HELP........

To be tested at New Orleans, the site allows individuals and businesses to rent their toilets for those in need. Prices range from free in Cobble Hill Brooklyn to $10 for a hotel toilet in New Orleans used by multiple celebrities to $20 in New York's Little Italy, the ultimate tourist trap.

    Photographs will be available for screening of the facility, although when in need I suppose any old dirty trench will suffice. And - there will be a rating system. Why not?

    Snoberry cabin attendants between different Airlines

    by Chinggis_n_Borte Online Now Jan 19, 2015 at 7:50 PM

    I wont mention the name of persons or airline re-this issue. This happen long time ago . A well known Airline from Asia arrived in the Philippines as usual with their young flight and cabin attendants both male and females. I was invited by one of them to join them for dinner at the exclusive Manila Hotel . I wa sitting at the lobby reception hall when another group of Flight attendants an Airline from North America arrived on a coaster bus, as they were dis -embarking. The flight attendants from this Asian Airline blurted out "Oh here comes our grandma's and grand dad's checking in too"and everyone was laughing except me. I walked away and did not join the dinner with the Asian Airlines staff as I thought it was very rude and in-appropriate to throw such remarks. If they only knew that such remarks could cause them real trouble and the Airline could get in court litigation. They probly would have shut their mouth off. Such mockery and snobberyy amongst Flight attendants should be addrressed by Airline Industries and not to be tolerated.

     

    The flight attendants from the North American Airline maybe older , but they are more smarter and efficient when it comes to providing quality inflight service compared to the younger ones.

    Wow! This is so terribly worrying

    by Homanded Online Now Jan 19, 2015 at 1:36 PM

    As someone who visits Yellowstone every year (and surrounding areas), this is very troubling!

    huffingtonpost.com/2015/01/1...

    >>> BILLINGS, Mont. -- Montana officials said Sunday that an oil pipeline breach spilled up to 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River near Glendive, Montana, but they said they are unaware of any threats to public safety or health.

    The Bridger Pipeline Co. said the spill occurred about 10 a.m. Saturday. The initial estimate is that 300 to 1,200 barrels of oil spilled, the company said in a statement Sunday.

    Some of the oil did get into the water, but the area where it spilled was frozen over and that could help reduce the impact, said Dave Parker, a spokesman for Gov. Steve Bullock.

    Glendive is north east of Billings, MT. Yellowstone Park itself is quite a bit south west of the spill location, but that doesn't make it okay!

    Not to worry, right folks? I mean, it's no biggie. Last time there was a solar panel accident, it destroyed all the flora, fauna, and human settlements for miles around. It could take centuries to recover from that awful sun spill!

    Possible mini London meet in August

    by toonsarah Online Now Jan 19, 2015 at 8:16 AM

    With apologies to those members flung far and wide for whom this is an irrelevant question!

    One of our Downunder members, wabat (aka Albert) will be in London for a few days end July / early August, and would like to meet local VTers. I'm thinking of posting a meeting for Saturday 1st August - possibly a picnic lunch (with a back-up plan for rain!), a walk somewhere and an evening in a pub. I want to gauge what interest there might be a such a plan? No need to commit at this stage, but would members from elsewhere in the UK and possibly Europe consider coming to such a thing?

    Driver's license and Automobile

    by SONG Online Now Jan 18, 2015 at 4:17 PM

    I've noticed a trend amongst some of our European members that they do not own a car, drive a car, or even have a driver's license. Americans are a*d*d*i*c*t*e*d to their autos. I realize that the European system of public transportation is far superior to ours, but at the same time, I cannot imagine not having MY own car and being able to
    get in it and go whenever and wherever I want. I've often said that I will lose my independence when "they" take my keys away because of ability to drive (age). That is true for most AMerican. A huge majority of Americans own their own car and drive it almost every day for everyday errands. Do you drive alone? I think nothing of getting in my car and driving across country. Do you own a car? Do you have any kind of driver's license? How do you get around? What is you main mode of transportation?
