UN launches partnerships tools to tether economic investment to disaster risk planning

The initiative, called R!SE, “provides a new formula for averting economic losses from disasters, which are a major brake on economic growth and development,” UN Deputy Secretary-General Jan Eliasson said at the launch, organized in New York by the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction (UNISDR).“Because R!SE brings together businesses, investors, insurers, public bodies and educators, it can be the catalyst we need to bring lasting change to how we approach risk,” Mr. Eliasson added, ahead of a demonstration of the Tangible Earth digital globe, that, among other functions, has been used to engage the private sector to play its part in reducing disaster risk.A response to ten years of record-breaking economic losses and disruption from disasters, which Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called “out of control,” the R!SE partnership will develop and promote global standards on risk metrics and voluntary industry standards for disaster risk-sensitive investment, UNISDR said in a press release. Margareta Wahlström, head of UNISDR, explained that “disaster risk is not natural but is produced by investment decisions and the range of factors that influence those decisions.” In other words, she added, “There are consequences for ignoring the principles of good land-use and building regulations in any business.”So far, the partnership includes PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Economist Intelligence Unit, Florida International University, Principles for Responsible Investment, the design and construction firm AECOM and global insurance broker Willis, according to UNISDR. A minimum of 1,000 asset owners and investment managers, 200 insurers and re-insurers and 100 global businesses in at least 50 cities and 20 countries are targeted for engagement by the R!SE initiative by 2020.Demonstrating the Tangible Earth globe at the R!SE launch, its inventor Professor Shinichi Takemura showed how the globe portrays the planetary effects of climate variations, earthquake, air pollution and settlement patterns. Credit: UNIFEED-UNTVBuilt with the participation of UNISDR to a 1:15 million ratio, compared to the actual earth, the globe can show the real time reverberations of seismic events around the world, or project the population centres flooded by a few metres’ rise in sea level. It spins at the flick of a finger on its surface, like a schoolroom globe, but is many times more powerful, zooming in on specific areas and graphically revealing innumerable trends and data-sets. “I am very sorry that children in 21st century are still learning geography, geology and global warming using two-dimensional maps invented in 16th century,” Mr. Takemura told the UN News Centre. “We really need a global medium that will represent what is really going on our planet – that is why we created this thing.”He added: “We are the first generation who came to understand exceptional beauty, dynamism and rareness of our planet in the context of the universe. We need to convey this message.” read more

Agreement for Sherwood Copper to acquire Western Keltic

first_imgThe inclusion of Kutcho Creek would double Sherwood Copper’s resources and could double production. Sherwood Copper has entered into an agreement with Western Keltic Mines under which Sherwood has agreed to make an offer to acquire all the shares of Western Keltic. “The acquisition of Western Keltic and its Kutcho Creek copper-zinc deposit would more than double our copper resources, and offers the potential to continue Sherwood’s transformation to a significant base metal producer through the potential development of Kutcho Creek,” said Stephen P. Quin, Sherwood’s President & CEO.  “We see the opportunity to redeploy our successful mine evaluation and development team to maximise the value of the Kutcho Creek property. We aim to reassess the development plans for Kutcho Creek over the coming months to determine the most attractive development option, much as we did at Minto, with the objective of developing a robust, low cost mining operation,” he said.  “Further, the high grade Minto mine should generate significant free cash flow at current metal prices that could be re-invested in the development of a second mine at Kutcho Creek, significantly reducing overall financing needs and share dilution versus Western Keltic going it alone.”Sherwood Copper recently completed the development of Phase 1 of its high grade Minto copper-gold mine in the Yukon, ahead of schedule and on budget, and aims to complete its Phase 2 mill expansion by the end of 2007. In addition, Sherwood will shortly be announcing the results of an independent pre-feasibility study on the Minto mine that will incorporate the discovery of the Area 2 deposit in 2006 and lay out the basis for a Phase 3 mill expansion. Further, exploration successes during 2007, including four new discoveries of high grade copper-gold mineralization, indicate potential for yet more growth within the Minto property. Results from 46 of 92 exploration holes completed in 2007 are still awaiting assays.Western Keltic recently completed a prefeasibility study evaluating the potential development of the Kutcho Creek deposit, the results of which were announced on September 5, 2007. This study defined resources and reserves as set out in an amended and restated technical report filed on SEDAR on October 29, 2007. Since that time, Western Keltic has been advancing the project towards completion of a feasibility study by conducting geotechnical and environmental baseline studies, as well as advancing the permitting process for approval of production. Western Keltic has also been actively engaged in discussions with the Talhtan and Kaska First Nations, as well as other local communities to ensure there is broad based support for the development of a mine at Kutcho Creek, while taking into account the concerns of the First Nations and other stakeholders. “Based on public information and our due diligence, Sherwood believes that the Kutcho Creek deposit shares many similarities with the Minto mine; being a smaller tonnage, relatively high grade open pittable copper deposit with by-product credits,” said Quin. “These similarities suggest that our experiences, approach and skills built up over the past two years at the Minto Mine should be directly transferable to the design, construction, financing and operation of a mine at Kutcho Creek. We believe there is an opportunity to “do it again” at Kutcho Creek, while learning from the challenges and successes experienced in the development of the Minto Mine.” www.sherwoodcopper.comlast_img read more

Asylum seekers will be allowed to work in Ireland under new rules

first_img https://jrnl.ie/4095315 Wednesday 27 Jun 2018, 4:58 PM Short URL 158 Comments Share914 Tweet Email5 Asylum seeker, Shaho Zamani from Iran, at a protest in Dublin. Image: RollingNews.ie Asylum seeker, Shaho Zamani from Iran, at a protest in Dublin. 39,739 Views center_img Image: RollingNews.ie By Christina Finn Asylum seekers will be allowed to work in Ireland under new rules Over 3,000 people will be eligible for the new scheme which will allow asylum seekers take up temporary and permanent positions. ASYLUM SEEKERS WILL be able to work under new regulations which will kick in by the end of this week.Announcing the details today, Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan said asylum seekers will be allowed to take up any form of employment except positions in An Garda Síochana, the Defence Forces and the civil service.In addition, applicants to the scheme who gain successful employment will now have the option to leave Direct Provision centres, and seek alternative accommodation, if they so wish. It’s believed 3,000 people will be eligible to take up temporary or permanent jobs.The new rules come a year after the Supreme Court found that the ban on those in direct provision seeking work was unconstitutional.Currently, any refugee who wants to work in Ireland must apply to the Minister of Business, Enterprise and Innovation for an employment permit – this scheme will now be scrapped.Other current obstacles to employment for asylum seekers at the moment is that they can only take up a job that pays €30,000 or more per year. This provision is also being removed.How will it work?Under the new rules, an asylum must have been in Ireland for a period of nine months and be awaiting a first decision from the International Protection Office about their asylum.If they have been awaiting a decision for that period, they are then eligible to apply for a letter of permission to work in Ireland by the Labour Market Access unit in the Department of Justice. There is no fee or charge for applying.The letter of permission will allow the person be employed or self-employed and will be valid for six months. A person can apply for the permission to be renewed every six months until a final decision on their asylum status is given.An applicant who gets a negative final decision on their refugee status, but who is in the process of appealing the decision can also apply for their permission to work to be renewed. However, once a final decision – after the appeals process is concluded – is made, their labour market access permission will cease.Will those working still get their social welfare payment?Access to social welfare payments will also be permitted to those who find employment. Currently, asylum seekers living in Direct Provision have a weekly allowance of €21.60 and can buy food using a recently introduced points system.This payment will continue to be paid for 12 weeks when a person finds employment, however, depending on their earnings and hours worked, that money may be reduced.Under the new rules, those that do find employment will have to start contributing to the cost of their stay at a Direct Provision centre. The cost per person, per day, for staying in one of these centres is €35.Will working asylum seekers have to pay for their stay at a Direct Provision centre?Once a person is working, a proportion of the cost will be placed on the worker. The more you earn the more you pay. There is no charge for children staying in Direct Provision. This will remain the case, regardless if parents are working.While no one has to leave a Direct Provision Centre, it is envisaged that as more people take up employment, they will seek alternative accommodation.With a shortfall in employment in some sectors, the government said the additional workforce has been welcomed by business groups, with whom department officials are meeting tomorrow. The minister said the scheme will add to the diversity in some workplaces, though there is no incentives for employers to hire those eligible for the programme. Minister for Justice and Equality, Charlie Flanagan, Minister of State with Special Responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration, David Stanton. Source: Leah FarrellMinister of State with special responsibility for Equality, Immigration, and Integration, David Stanton welcomed the government’s decision to provide access for qualified applicants to the labour market, stating:“This will promote the integration into Irish society of asylum seekers and their families.”The new rules do not allow for asylum seekers to apply for a driving licence, however.“Any changes to the current eligibility requirements is a matter for the Minister for Transport,” said the Department of Justice.

MCU NEWS More Female Superheroes Johansson Confirmed for Black Widow Film

first_img Some of the best things are coming out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The fantastic characters, interlocking storylines, and the upcoming array of female superheroes that are slaying alongside our favorite male ones. Kevin Feige, the president of Marvel Studios, says that there will be more lady superheroes in the MCU to come. Screenrant asked the Feige about this in an interview.“… I think we’re getting to the point soon where we have so many great female characters that those are our heroes as opposed to when are they all female, all male. It’s just the Marvel heroes, more than half of which will be women.” It’s a promising future for ladies in the MCU to outweigh the men in more ways than one. Marvel’s database has a wide arrange of female superheroes (and baddies) that can be brought into the universe and it’s the right time to bring them in. In the meantime, we have some dope superbabes coming to screen in Ant-Man and the Wasp, in theaters July 6th. Also, how can we forget the first lady of Marvel to have her own solo title? Carol Danvers aka Captain Marvel will be making her debut in her self-titled film slated for 2019. Captain Marvel will be played by the gorgeous and dazzling Brie Larson. I know, my epic crush is showing and there are no signs of stopping.Speaking of epic crushes, Scarlett Johansson has confirmed that she will be playing Black Widow in the standalone film, Black Widow. Appearing on Ellen, she told the host that to do the film it would have to be, “… something that we’ve never seen before that was really groundbreaking and incredibly badass.” Scarlett Johansson has starred as Natasha Romanoff (Black Widow) since Iron Man 2. Johansson has greatly grown the character into something that’s entirely her. We’re still not sure of the plot, cast and release date for the Black Widow film. All good things come in time.AdChoices广告In more early development news, we’re entering the stage where we can whisper loudly about Marvel’s Phase 4 plans. Fans are already expecting some highly anticipated titles such as Spider-Man: Far From Home, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Black Panther 2, and (hopefully) Black Widow. Feige confirmed more female superhero, but what about teenagers? We’ve been #blessed with Marvel teens in the form of Runaways (Hulu) and Cloak and Dagger (Freeform). What if we brought Young Avengers to the big screen?Reported by Heroic Hollywood, Feige acknowledges that bringing specific kids and teens in the universe is leading up to something. In the first Ant-Man, we’re introduced to Cassie Lang, Scott Lang’s young daughter. Cassie Lang in the comics has a significant rule to play. Cassie becomes Stature in Young Avengers and later Stinger (Astonishing Ant-Man). The questions is, will Cassie Lang take up either of these titles and bring Young Avengers into the MCU? According to Feige, it’s a very big possibility! In Ant-Man and the Wasp, there’s reportedly a scene that hints to Cassie’s future.“… taking our cue from the comics as we always do – that’s why we wanted Cassie, a very young Cassie in this movie, to be inspired by her father. Just planting seeds.” Only time will tell if we see Cassie in her role as Stature or the Young Avengers in the MCU. It would be amazing to see some teenager kick some ass as much as the adults do on the big screen.Last, but certainly not least, let’s return to the Spider-verse for some news that will either excite you or make you go “huh?” According to Variety, Jared Leto is set to star in Mobius, a Spider-Man spinoff based on the infamous villain who tried to cure his blood disease but instead ended up becoming a vampire instead. The film will again star Jared Leto as the title character with Daniel Espinosa (Safe House, Life, Child 44) set to direct. Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless (Lost in Space) will be writing the script and Avi Arad, Matt Tolmach and Lucas Foster producing.The Spider-verse is quickly expanding! With the recent announcement of Silk, Venom set to hit theaters in October and Spider-Man: Far From Home coming soon after it’s a good time to be a Spidey fan. Now, we won’t pretend to forget his other comic book role as The Joker in Suicide Squad. However, this may be a very different comic role for Leto that lands him something great. Stars like Ryan Reynolds, Chris Evans, and Ayelet Zurer have managed to act in both DC and Marvel properties. Leto moving towards Marvel properties could be a dope thing for him. There’s no release date for the film, but we’re excited to hear more about it.

Fishing report 130

first_imgIt’s pretty much the doldrums season for angling in Southwest Washington, past the peak of the hatchery winter steelhead run and too early for most of the wild steelhead.A month from now still will be too early for spring chinook, not that common sense applies when spring salmon are involved. After all, someone has to catch the first fish of the season.Washington and Oregon adopted spring chinook fishing rules for 2014 on Wednesday. The river downstream of Interstate 5 is open daily. The Columbia between I-5 and Beacon Rock will be open for boats and bank rods daily beginning March 1. The stretch between Beacon Rock and Bonneville Dam will be open beginning March 1 for bank rods only.State biologists project the sport allocation for the lower Columbia will be filled by about April 7, but several factors will influence the closure date.Sturgeon retention in Bonneville pool resumes on Saturday and continues through Feb. 17 or until another 300 to 350 fish are taken.Angler checks from the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife:Mid-Columbia — The Dalles pool, 20 boaters with two legal sturgeon kept and 59 sublegals released; 10 boaters with two hatchery steelhead kept and 11 wild steelhead released; one bank rod with two walleye kept and one released.last_img read more

CIA gives medal to top Saudi royal for counterterrorism work

first_imgThe heir to Saudi Arabia’s throne has been awarded a medal by the new director of the US Central Intelligence Agency, who honoured his counter-terrorism work.Mike Pompeo, on his first overseas tour since being confirmed as spy agency chief in late January, made the presentation to Crown Prince Mohammed bin Nayef at a weekend ceremony, the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) said.Prince Mohammed, 57, has been interior minister since 2012 and has years of experience in intelligence work.Widely respected in the West for his efforts to combat violent extremism, he oversaw a crackdown on Al-Qaeda which killed security officers and foreigners in the kingdom between 2003 and 2007.In 2009 Prince Mohammed survived with only light injuries an assassination attempt by Al-Qaeda.Pompeo awarded him the George Tenet Medal in recognition of his “excellent intelligence performance, in the domain of counter-terrorism and his unbound contribution to realise world security and peace.”George Tenet was the CIA’s longest-serving director, from 1996 to 2004.Pompeo and Prince Mohammed also held talks on security issues, SPA said.The prince told SPA that “no attempt will succeed in driving a wedge between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the US”.It was the latest Saudi reaffirmation of ties between the absolute Islamic monarchy and Washington since President Donald Trump took office on January 20.Riyadh’s Foreign Affairs Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters on Sunday that there was nothing surprising or unusual about Pompeo’s visit as the two sides address issues of mutual concern.”The US and Saudi Arabia… have extensive ties. We have extensive challenges that we’re working on in counter-terrorism, in security, maritime security, and the whole gamut of issues,” he said.The United States and Saudi Arabia have a decades-old relationship founded on the exchange of American security for Saudi oil.But ties between Riyadh and Washington became increasingly frayed during the eight-year administration of former president Barack Obama.Saudi Arabia’s Sunni leaders felt Obama was reluctant to get involved in the civil war in Syria and was tilting towards its Shiite-dominated rival Iran.Pompeo is a strident critic of an international deal reached in 2015 to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for guarantees that it will not pursue a nuclear weapons capability.In interviews and written pieces, Pompeo has pointed to Iran as the primary source of conflict in the Middle East since Tehran’s 1979 revolution — views which coincide with those of Riyadh.Pompeo had been in Turkey late last week for talks with officials there.last_img read more

Stan Lees Best Characters

first_imgStay on target Stan Lee May Have New York City Street Named After HimArnold Schwarzenegger Lends Voice to ‘Stan Lee’s Superhero Kindergarten’ Stan Lee, the architect of Marvel’s shared universe, the writer of numerous titles, and the public-facing head of the publisher during one of its most creatively fertile periods, has died at the age of 95.Collected here are his 11 finest creations.Black BoltThe Inhumans are a great concept in-and-of-themselves: Highly evolved, superpowered, moon-dwelling distant-distant-distant cousins of humanity. But even amongst an entire race of crazy, awesome, and crazy-awesome characters, Black Bolt stands out. He’s the king of the Inhumans, but his special power – a “quasi-sonic scream” – prevents him from speaking normally, which ensures that even this royal, superpowered, space-god retains the feet of clay for which Lee’s characters are most famous.Black PantherA common misconception about the Black Panther character is that he was created as a way of tying into current events, specifically the rise of the Black Panther Party. The truth though, is that the Black Panther predated the founding of the Black Panther Party by several months! It’s just one of many examples of how tapped into the zeitgeist Lee was at his creative peak, as he and frequent co-creator Jack Kirby introduced King T’Challa, who is not only the first black superhero, but also an early example of a non-American superhero.DaredevilThough Frank Miller is the creator most closely associated with Daredevil (and rightfully so), Matt Murdock was actually created decades prior to Miller’s celebrated run by none other than Stan Lee and Namor the Sub-Mariner creator Bill Everett. Though the hardboiled noir elements of the book wouldn’t really come in until Miller got his hands on him, Lee, Everett, Wally Wood, John Romita Sr, and others built an iconic character – the blind lawyer who defends his clients by day and protects Hell’s Kitchen by night – that still holds weight today, as evidenced by the fan-favorite Netflix series.Doctor DoomThe Fantastic Four is probably Stan Lee’s single greatest contribution to comics. It kicked-off the Marvel Age of comics, reinvigorating superheroes for subsequent generations, it gave fandom a full family of iconic heroes, and it fleshed out the Marvel Universe with countless supporting characters. But on top of all that? The Fantastic Four also gave us one of the greatest comic book villains of all time: The arrogant, brilliant, ruthless leader of Latveria…Doctor Doom.Galactus & Silver SurferDoctor Doom is great, but he’s not even close to my favorite character from Lee & Kirby’s legendary Fantastic Four run. I’m cheating a little bit here, lumping the Devourer of Worlds Galactus in with his greatest herald, the Silver Surfer, but I think it’s probably alright, due to how closely connected the two characters are and, more importantly, how amazing they are together. Galactus & Silver Surfer are a perfect example of the type of gonzo absurdity that Lee & Kirby played with a straight face, making it palatable to children, adults, and everyone in between.The HulkIt’s a popular notion to say that the Hulk is basically just a superhero Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde. While there are certainly some similarities (brilliant doctor turns himself into a despicable monster), they’re all very surface-level. What makes the Hulk truly special is what drives him: Rage. That simple twist on the old Jekyll/Hyde archetype makes it possible to use the green giant to explore all aspects of anger, making him instantly identifiable to generations of comic book readers.MagnetoLike Doctor Doom and The Fantastic Four, Lee’s greatest contribution to the X-Men might just be their greatest villain, the Master of Magnetism, Magneto. Generations of comic book creators have all put their spin on the villain, but the core idea has largely remained the same: Magneto is a man that while not inherently evil, is so furious at the bigotry he faces that he is compelled to strike back. He was the Malcolm X to Professor X’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Combine that amazing motivation with the fascinating, versatile ability to control magnetic fields and you have the recipe for one of the best comics characters of all time.Nick FuryNick Fury is, quite possibly, the most flexible and malleable of any of Stan Lee’s creations. In his first appearance, back in 1963, Nick Fury was the head of an elite military group, as part of the war-based Sgt. Fury and his Howling Commandos. By 1965, however, with the explosive popularity of James Bond films, Fury had transitioned into more of a spy character. As the years have worn on, Fury didn’t just remain an active part of the Marvel Universe – he actually became an ever more crucial component, both in comics and film, as the head of S.H.I.E.L.D.Spider-ManThere was no way that Spider-Man – one of the most popular and durable superheroes of all time – wasn’t going to make this list. For years, Spider-Man was one of Marvel’s flagship titles, ushered through countless now-iconic storylines by Lee, co-creator Steve Ditko, and the legendary John Romita, Sr. As a youth-based superhero that squared off almost exclusively against old men, Spider-Man was a crucial part of Marvel’s explosive growth in popularity.The ThingBenjamin Grimm, The Ever-Lovin’ Blue-Eyed Thing, is most closely associated with Jack Kirby, which makes sense, as the Lower East Side-dwelling, rough-and-tumble Jewish character had an inordinate amount in common with the King of Comics. But for the most part, it was Stan Lee that gave the Thing his voice in those early years, and as such, he was a vital part of making the character one of Marvel’s most beloved and most complex.Uatu, the WatcherAnother character that had his origin in The Fantastic Four, Uatu is one of those concepts that’s become so integral to fandom that it’s easy to forget how bizarre it is. A member of the a race of aliens called the Watchers, Uatu hangs out on the moon and, you guessed it, watches stuff. The trick, however, is that he’s bound to never interfere with what he sees go down on the Earth, though he invariably finds ways to get around that restriction.As of right this very second, we consider these to be Stan Lee’s greatest creations. But if you were to ask us tomorrow…the list would probably be totally different, due to the extremely deep roster we’re looking at here. Tell us your favorite Lee creations down in the comments!Aubrey Sitterson is the writer of the upcoming Street Fighter x G.I. Joe comic from IDW Publishing.

The judge said the baker didn’t have to create a brand-new wedding cake due to her religious beliefs. However, if the couple had requested a pre-made cake, then the baker would have had to sell it.So Kimmel the waiter offers the woman a day old salad.The skit continues like this. A Jewish man can’t order the lasagna, and another man can’t order the salad for the lesbian. Why? Because the restaurant owner is a Wiccan priestess and doesn’t allow men to order for women because it ‘perpetrates the patriarchy’.Finally, the last woman orders a steak to no avail because the chef is Hindu.

Judge against Ryanair for imposing boarding pass penalty fee

first_imgA Judge in Spain has ruled against low-cost carrier Ryanair for forcing passengers to pay A$54 for failing to print their own boarding cards, according to a report in Bloomberg News. The 40 Euros penalty fee was unfair, according to the Judge, and should not be charged as it is general practice for an airline to issue boarding cards.”The normal practice over the years has been that the obligation to issue the boarding card has always fallen on the carrier,” Judge Barbara Maria Cordoba said during the ruling.”I declare unfair and therefore void the contractual clause in which Ryanair obliges the passenger to be the one who brings the printed boarding pass to travel or face a penalty of 40 Euros.” The Consumers Union of Spain (UCE) is supportive of the decision, saying Ryanair’s policy was “abusive”.”International air traffic laws, to which Ryanair is subject, oblige a transporter to provide the travel document,” UCE said in a statement.In September, Ryanair said it was Spain’s largest carrier, taking over Spanish airline Iberia in passenger numbers.  Ryanair can still appeal the ruling which was carried out earlier this week.

Our objective with this new role is to ensure TravelManagers is properly structured to maximize further sales and to enhance the current specialist cruise support for the personal travel manager network.”Gazal couldn’t be more elated that Humphries with her extensive cruise experience has joined the company.“Lisa’s wealth of knowledge, passion and expertise within the dynamic cruise industry is unsurpassed.

The six locally state based business partnership managers together with the national partnership office ensure our personal travel managers have access to the broadest and most in-depth support and infrastructure available.

Joy DoddsMediterranean MusingsSevillaSevilleSpain

first_imgJoy DoddsMediterranean MusingsSevillaSevilleSpain Read all of JOY DODDS’ previous Mediterranean Musings – from Italy to Spain, and including gastronomic delights …IMAGE: View from Hotel Europa of narrow streets and wrought iron balconies, many enclosed.It would be so easy to spend a month exploring Andalucia, Spain’s southernmost Mediterranean region, taking in historic cities such as the capital Sevilla, Granada and Cordoba that were part of what the Muslim invaders referred to as Al-Andalus. History aside, there’s a wealth of scenic beauty from the snow-capped Sierra Nevada south-east of Granada to the little-known Costa de la Luz beaches along the Atlantic seaboard.Looking skywards at Hotel Europa’s decorative ironworkOur target was Sevilla, arriving by fast AVE train at Santa Justa Station after a fascinating 2½ hour rail journey from Madrid through Castilla-La Mancha. Heading for the historic district near the Rio Guadalquivir, an area of narrow cobbled alleys and small plazas called El Arenal, we chose the Hotel Europa near Plaza de San Francisco, located in an old building with fascinating wrought ironwork and a family-style environment – perfect!Within walking distance were all the city’s highlights including the Alcázar royal palace-fortress with its stunning arches and tiles in Patio de la Doncellas and the giant Catedral Giralda (originally a mosque) with its 90m-high minaret and Christian additions. The tomb of Christopher Columbus and the world’s largest altarpiece are two of many treasures found inside this Gothic masterpiece. Archivo de Indias (documenting Spain’s American empire) makes the city’s third World Heritage Site.Then there’s the Golden Tower (Torre del Oro), a 13th century Muslim watchtower and Plaza Salvador, a forum during Roman times with a few columns remaining.Sevilla street view with La Giralda cathedral tower in the distanceMore recent – 1758 in fact – is the very grand bullring, Plaza de Toros La Maestranza, a Baroque monument perched on the river bank which includes a bullfighting art collection While I am not in favour of the “sport”, many Spaniards are and bullfights are staged from Easter to October in Sevilla. Other sights include the Museo de Bellas Artes and many churches such as Iglesia de la Anunciación, Triana, Santa Ana and El Salvador, all within easy reach.Looking towards Plaza de Toros bullring on the Rio GuadalquivirSettled by the Romans. Sevilla oozes history, becoming an obvious target for the Muslim invaders, who made it their capital from 1040-to 1248. Christian monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella finally took back Spain in the 15th century, creating yet another chapter of history.But it is the colour and vitality of the people of Sevilla that impress just as much, especially at this time, before the famous century-old Feria de Abril which kicks off each year on April 15, one huge late-night party of song, dancing and cheerfulness.Sevilla is one of Spain’s bases of flamenco, which has its roots not only in Castilian culture, but also Arabic, Jewish and Gypsy. The rhythm, melody and dance are so passionate and powerful and, apart from many bars and restaurants, its identity, heritage and soul can be enjoyed in Sevilla at the Museum of Flamenco Dance.Inside El Real Alcazar – the royal palaces – including the Patio de las Doncellas with its majestic archesYear-round, don’t expect to eat at a restaurant before 8pm and do try as many varieties of tapas as you can – Iberian meats including black ham and pork loin, and seafood such as deep-fried baby squid, with masses of choice. One tapas restaurant, Albahaca, is located in a former gypsy cellar in an ancient courtyard. The city market, Mercado Lonja del Barranco, by the river at the Triana Bridge offers fresh produce and stunning cuisine.The city’s vibrant bars specialise in vino, cava and vermouth as well as live music and unforgettable flamenco, again late, often until 4am. I was tempted to enrol in a one-day course in flamenco dance technique and Spanish but reconsidered, thinking my age and hand-clapping skills may fall somewhat short.Time has flown amid this magical, vibrant city and it’s now time to explore another facet of Andalusia, its Mediterranean coast.last_img read more
