Travel advisory update: Cayman Islands – hurricane Matthew to bring hazardous conditions

From the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office –

Hurricane Matthew Forces Cruise Lines To Change Cruise Itineraries

By Ben Souza From Cruise Fever

Hurricane Matthew, currently a category 4 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 155 mph, has forced at least two cruise lines (Carnival Cruise Line and Royal Caribbean) to make changes to cruise itineraries in the Caribbean.
hurricanematthew

Hurricane Matthew is projected to pass over the eastern part of Jamaica, Cuba, and the Bahamas over the next 4-5 days. The storm is currently located to the south of Jamaica and Haiti and is moving west at 7 mph.

So far, Royal Caribbean and Carnival Cruise Line have made changes to itineraries. Cruise Fever will continue to monitor Hurricane Matthew and will have all itinerary changes as they are announced. So far, the changes have been as follows:

Carnival Cruise Line has made changes to itineraries for Carnival Sunshine and Carnival Splendor. Carnival Sunshine’s calls in Half Moon Cay and Grand Turk have been canceled and replaced with stops in Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. The cruise ship is scheduled to leave Miami, Florida on Saturday for a five night cruise.

Carnival Splendor will sail a reverse itinerary and will now stop in Ocho Rios, Grand Cayman, and then Cozumel. This six night cruise leaves from Miami, Florida on Sunday.

Royal Caribbean made two changes this week due to the storm. Allure of the Seas switched stops in St. Thomas and St. Maarten for Labadee and Falmouth. Adventure of the Seas bypassed St. Lucia and Barbados for St. Maarten, St. Croix, and St. Thomas.

It is extremely rare that cruise lines will cancel a cruise due to a hurricane or tropical storm. To keep the ships out of harms way for the passengers and crew members, itineraries are often swapped (Eastern Caribbean instead of Western Caribbean etc). For more information, read What happens if there is a hurricane during my cruise?

For the latest updates on Hurricane Matthew, visit the National Hurricane Center.

Cruise Fever will continue to monitor this storm and will have all cruise changes as they are announced.

3D Robotics’ new drone can follow you around, carry a mirrorless camera

By Steve Dent From engadget

q-1003D Robotics is not about to let DJI hog all the press with its wild Inspire 1 Drone, so it just revealed its own semi-pro model: the X8+. The 8-prop UAV is designed to carry GoPro or lightweight mirrorless cameras, while offering a fully automated flight control system starting at $1,350 (without a gimbal or camera). That price may tempt pro or semi-pro users away from DJI’s (admittedly cool), retractable gear model, which runs $2,900 with a built-in gimbal and 4K camera. But unlike DJI’s turnkey drone, 3DR is positioning the X8+ as a customizable ship aimed not only at cinematographers, but surveyors or miners too.

The X8+ is an upgrade on the X8 model in nearly every way. It’ll carry 800 grams (1.76 pounds) and fly up to 18 minutes, but if you’re willing to sacrifice endurance, you can carry up to 2.2 pounds with, say, a mirrorless camera. 3D Robotics says it’ll fly Blackmagic Design’s Pocket Cinema Camera, for instance, which is rather heavy for its size at 350 grams (0.78 pounds). That means it’ll easily work with Sony’s mirrorless NEX cameras or compact models like Panasonic’s LX100. For an extra $350, you can also kit it with an FPV GoPro liveview kit for easier scouting and aerial photography.

Drinking a pint from an espresso-inspired beer tap

screenshot2014-11-28at12-15-20 q-100-1By Nick Summers From engadget

I’m tired of walking into musty pubs and ordering pints that are bland, poured incorrectly, or twice the price of the nearest off-licence. If I weren’t meeting friends, I’d be out the door faster than Road Runner. Of course, more than a few social drinkers share my apathy, so a surge of public houses are starting to change tack. They’re embracing top-notch craft beers and employ bartenders that put genuine care into your order. You feel like they want your business, and what you’re getting in return would be difficult to replicate at home.

Cambridge Consultants has noticed the trend, too. The R&D company is something like Q’s laboratory from the James Bond films, creating weird and wonderful gizmos for a range of different industries, including defence and security, health, energy and wireless communications. In the past, its multi-discipline teams have prototyped a tea-making device that brews the perfect cuppa in two minutes, a portable radar that can see through walls, and a water bottle that glows as you become dehydrated.

For its next experiment, Cambridge Consultants wants to give beer aficionados some added choice and excitement at their favourite bars. It looked to dry hopping, a post-fermentation process pubs and breweries employ to strengthen the flavour and aroma of their beers. By throwing fresh hops into a keg, their natural flavours are slowly extracted and infused for up to a couple of weeks. After toying with temperature, agitation and a ton of other methods, Cambridge Consultants realised that pressure could be used to turbocharge the process.

With this in mind, Hoppier was born. From the front, it looks just like a regular beer font, with a big lever at the top and a pump under the table: Nothing special. But peek around the back and the design becomes a little more alien. The team has integrated a steel portafilter, the kind you would normally find on a espresso machine. The beer, under pressure, is forced through this special brew chamber filled with crushed hops, which infuse the draught before it hits the pint glass.

The company is hardly the first to play around with the dry hopping technique though. Dogfish Head, a craft brewery in the US, unveiled a similar machine called Randall (aka Randall the Enamel Animal) in 2010. The device allows breweries to connect a tap on one side and run their preferred beer through two chambers; the first contains the fresh hops and the second gives the mixture time to settle and “defoam.” The company then followed it up with the cheaper and more portable Randall Junior, which is roughly the size of a Thermos flask and gets to work when you leave it in the fridge. Some beer aficionados have even nailed the dry hopping process with traditional French presses.

“It gives people the opportunity to do their own thing, and make a custom beer that they could put their own name to.”
The Hoppier could, in theory, be used to blend the flavours of other ingredients, such as fruit and spices. Edward Brunner, the company’s head of food and beverage systems, says that stouts could benefit from the infusion of coffee grounds, something Hoppier is obviously more than equipped to do. It’s a versatile machine, and in the hands of bartenders, I’m sure even crazier combinations could be discovered. “It just adds a bit of excitement,” Brunner said. “It gives people the opportunity to do their own thing, and make a custom beer that they could put their own name to.”

But what does it taste like? Does the machine actually deliver? Well, ‘hoppiness’ is a tricky characteristic to describe, but I could taste the difference immediately. The beer tastes somewhat fresher and the core flavors are stronger — it’s a richer, punchy pint that still feels natural and authentic. I wouldn’t say it’s superior to a regular draught, but it’s different and makes a nice change from the generic beer selection found in most British pubs.

Hoppier also succeeds as a spectacle. Normally when a bartender takes my order, I stand around and gaze absent-mindedly at the spirits behind the counter, or at whatever football match is being shown on TV. Watching someone pull a pint just isn’t that exciting to me. But with the Hoppier, its espresso machine DNA helps to replicate the bustling coffee shop experience. The idea is that the machine, the aroma of the hops and the bartender’s skill will make you feel like you’re ordering something special. Normally, the dry hopping process isn’t seen or advertised (I suspect most people are unaware that it even exists) but here, you”re able appreciate it and taste the difference immediately.

For all its promise of tasty, personalised beers and added theatre, it’s still unclear if pubs and bars will get on board. Most landlords are under enough pressure as it is; upgrading beer fonts and keeping a stock of chilled hops isn’t going to help. However, Cambridge Consultants say it’s in talks with breweries and the initial feedback has been positive. So who knows, maybe I’m looking at (and tasting) the future here. At this stage at least, the Hoppier certainly succeeds as a proof of concept, and it would definitely liven up the dreary atmosphere offered in my local at the moment.

Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands issues safety advisory on Galaxy Note 7

The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands issued a safety advisory on transporting the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 by aircraft:

The purpose of this safety advisory is to advise air operators, passengers and crew of the risks involved in transporting the new Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone in checked baggage or inside the cabin of an aircraft. In light of recent incidents and concerns involving the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 smartphone, exploding or catching fire. For this reason, The Civil Aviation Authority of the Cayman Islands (CAACI) strongly advises air operators, passengers and crew of this safety risk and is recommending thatSamsung Galaxy Note 7 devices not be turned on or charged while on board the aircraft and not to be placed in checked baggage.

This advisory is the result of Samsung’s recent concerns raised about their Galaxy Note 7 device, as well as the subsequent statement from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the USA strongly advising passengers against using this device inflight, or checking it in with their baggage.

This safety advisory follows Cayman Airways warning issued last week on the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. Cayman Airways (CAL) statement said, “Cayman Airways passengers may still carry the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 device in their carry-on baggage or on their person, but as of Friday, September 9, 2016, passengers were being advised during the preflight safety announcements that the device must not be switched on or charged on board. Cayman Airways is also advising passengers that this particular device is not to be stored in checked luggage.”

October Events at Camana Bay

Fall is here and with the harvest season comes a bounty of shopping with Shoppers’ Night Out – a one-night affair where the shops of Camana Bay mark down prices and visitors can enjoy live music, refreshments and giveaways.

You may notice the buildings in the Town Centre will light up pink from 1-27 October to honour Breast Cancer Awareness Month. There are a number ways to give back, from an Opening Ceremony celebration to the 10th Annual Pilates for Pink to special salon and spa treatments at Eclipze Hair Design & Day Spa’s 16th Annual Cut-A-Thon.

Things turn eerie when the Town Centre lights up orange to celebrate all things Halloween from 28-31 October. Families can enjoy a pumpkin carving workshop, budding chefs can make frightfully fun treats, partygoers can dance away at Oktoberfest while kids can do the same at a Halloween Glow Party and moviegoers can enjoy a Frankenstein ballet on the big screen and family-friendly movies on a giant outdoor big screen. Everyone is invited to dress in their costumes for a 5K fun run while trick-or-treaters can also mark their calendars for the always anticipated Spooktacular.
