Tourism Ministry to Adjust Advertising in US

Dr. Wykeham McNeill. The Minister was speaking at a press briefing, held at the Ministry’s New Kingston Offices on Thursday (November 15). Dr. McNeill pointed out that the US elections, held on November 6, would normally have a dampening effect on arrivals. However, with Hurricane Sandy affecting the north east US, it has “complicated the marketing challenge going forward.” “We are now considering the possible longer term strategies that will help us regain momentum in North America, while reinforcing our efforts in Russia, Central Europe and Scandinavia,” Dr. McNeill said. Sandy hit Jamaica on October 24 and caused the cancellation of 32 flights. When it hit the north east USA, 36 more fights were cancelled. Despite this, arrivals for the month of October were just marginally down over the similar period last year, less than one per cent at -0.9 per cent. “This was partly due to the positive performance we were having up to that point. In discussions with our partners, none of the airlines that fly out of the northeast have decided to reduce service, so we expect to see an improvement as we regain momentum,” Dr. McNeill said. He noted that there was no doubt that in the short and even medium term, the Hurricane’s impact on the northeast states could present challenges for Jamaica. “As I had indicated immediately after the hurricane, this is not a time for panicking, but a time for strategic planning on the way forward and reinforcing our relationship with our partners,” the Minister emphasised. He said based on the feedback from the Jamaica Product Exchange, and World Travel Market, the outlook for the upcoming winter tourist season in Jamaica “seems encouraging.” Advertisementslast_img read more

Scott Adams Explains: How to Be an ID Critic

first_imgEducation Well, not exactly, but what he says here comes awfully close to hitting just that mark. I love Scott Adams, the Dilbert cartoonist turned daily video commentator on the world at large. Watch this in which he “Teaches the First Class of Troll College.” Congratulations to Science Magazine for an Honest Portrayal of Darwin’s Descent of Man Jane Goodall Meets the God Hypothesis He facetiously proposes to teach Internet trolls how to up their game, as trolls. Notice anything familiar? Yes, you do. As described by Adams, trolls behave almost exactly the way Internet Darwinists do. Not only the anonymous Darwin trolls (that would be obvious) but tenured biology professors and mainstream journalists who write under their own name, aka “the critics.”His tips for trolling include, “Misstate then criticize,” “Context doesn’t matter,” “You understand science” (and nobody who disagrees with you does), and “Mind-reading is real.”An example of that last might be: Via mind-reading, you can determine that ID proponents seek to mandate intelligent design in the public schools despite their years of urging against precisely such an extremely misguided idea. Or by looking deep into their minds, you know that ID advocates are really creationists despite their persistent affirmations that the world is billions of years old, the Cambrian explosion of animal life occurred some 530 million years ago, and so on.How to be a troll — or I would add, an ID critic — on science in particular starts at about 11:48. As Adams summarizes, “It’s all in the attitude.” Again, in the context of our critics, none of this is limited to mere trolls. Scott Adams is quite funny. Enjoy.

The Strong Legacy of the Class of 2015

first_imgWhen a young student needed advice or direction at Glacier High School, he or she was usually directed to a pair of sturdy seniors for guidance.Hunter and Harrison Kauffman, fraternal twins towering over 6-feet-1 and combining for nearly 500 pounds of brawn, are a pair of scholarly sentinels, versatile leaders who set goals and tackled them one by one, balancing duties as co-captains of the state champion football team with excelling near the top of their class.In other words, the Kauffman brothers represent the best of this valley’s graduating class, a group of over 1,000 young men and women who started as wide-eyed underclassmen with hopes and goals and have now grown into the leaders of tomorrow. In the next two weeks, the class of 2015 will toss its caps in the air, celebrating a milestone.Glacier High School will hold its graduation ceremony June 6 while Flathead and Stillwater Christian will hold their events the night before. Whitefish, Columbia Falls and Bigfork will celebrate graduation on June 6. Linderman Education Center will graduate its largest class ever, with 122 students receiving diplomas June 4.At each ceremony, students will earn recognition for accomplishing greatness over the past four years. Of course, greatness is defined differently for each student. For some, greatness is achieving a 4.0 grade-point average while others overcame untold odds to simply receive a diploma, which is no less noteworthy.Each and every student has a story worth telling. Like the Kauffman brothers.Their family moved to Kalispell from Pennsylvania when the boys were in sixth grade. This rather remote corner of the state seemed far gone from the urban landscape on the other side of the country. The brothers had each other.As freshmen at Glacier High School, the boys were fortunate enough to meet upperclassmen who became significant mentors. Students like Luke Halliburton and Mack Sutherland helped the boys understand the importance of integrity and hard work.“The role models in my life have pushed me to do more. When you decide you want to give everything you’ve got to your activities and your academics, it just goes into all facets of your life,” Harrison said.The brothers set ambitious goals, academically and athletically. They also established a moral compass that would guide them past the pitfalls of high school.“A lot of those guys didn’t focus on being just a great athlete. They wanted to be good people too,” Hunter said. “They took care of us, not just for the program but coming to a new high school from all these different schools. They looked out for us. It’s really nice to have somebody who can look out for you.”The Kauffmans excelled. By their senior year, they were co-captains on the Glacier football team, which went undefeated and won the Class AA state championship, the first in the school’s history and first for a Kalispell team in over 40 years. The two bulky linemen were both named all-state.In the classroom, their drive and achievement was no less impressive. Hunter is graduating with a 4.0 GPA and will attend Johns Hopkins University. Harrison will attend Lehigh on a football scholarship and study business and pre-law.“They’re just a couple of great kids. They’re amazing,” said Jan Twamley, administrative assistant at Glacier.Walk the halls at each school and similar stories of leaders emerge. The class of 2015 is well represented and is leaving quite the legacy.“The nice thing about being a senior is people will look up to you and they’ll come to you with their problems or if they need guidance and it gives you a great platform to take people under your wing and help them,” Hunter said.“I think one thing that is really important about senior year is legacy,” Harrison said. “You want to teach the things you’ve learned to the younger kids. The role of a senior is to help them become the leaders they’ll become next year.” Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup.

News / Containerisation – or rather the lack of it – hammers another nail in air cargo’s coffin

© Spongecake “I can’t take an air container to the factory for stuffing. The air industry hasn’t worked it out with Customs. It’s not just the data transfer, it’s the physical process itself.“In air, the transport, handling, and airline all need to transfer the shipment correctly. The ease of handling sea cargo cannot be matched.”It is something that has been noticed, and even could be addressed by Boeing. In December it patented a design for an aircraft which drops down and locks on to a standard sea freight container, although the execution of this idea is likely to remain many years away, if appearing at all.Others argued that the price discrepancy between sea and air would always be the main factor.“Air prices are coming down and it’s becoming more attractive. But sea reliability has only been improving. Quality is very important, and transit times, but at the end of the day it comes down to price,” said Peter Scholten, CEO of Fast Logistics Solutions Group, which specialises in the African market.“In the middle of Africa it’s easier to sell air freight than sea freight – but it’s more expensive, and we are seeing more activity in sea freight.”A supply chain consultant delegate noted that “the supply chain doesn’t add any value to the product. It just protects the product’s value. The value created in the factory must be maintained. So shippers want to spend the least amount of money [while maintaining the value].”With $100 the going rate for a 20-ton shipment from India to Europe by sea, “there’s no way you can say air is the preferred mode”, added Mr Shah.While the air cargo industry was called upon to ensure quality and smoother processes, Des Vertannes, former chief of IATA Cargo and Etihad Cargo, pointed out that most airlines – many of which this year are making record profits from passengers – didn’t have the incentive to do so.“It is also about airlines’ attitudes to cargo. It’s nothing more than a contributing factor [to revenues] for them.”But he also urged the air freight industry to analyse and market its speedy services better. “Air freight has got faster, but there are no KPIs to tell anyone. The traditional air cargo supply chain doesn’t have key milestones and measures.”Sam Katgara, partner of forwarder Jeena & Co, called for airports to introduce benchmarking for services such as handling and Customs efficiency, which would have the added benefit of showing where individual bottlenecks were.The ports industry is currently undergoing a similar process, with increasing amounts of focus on how to measure port productivity. Containerisation – or rather the lack of it – continues to plague the air freight industry, delegates heard at Air Cargo India in Mumbai this week.Falling fuel prices and overcapacity have seen rates drop across the board, making air freight at least marginally more affordable. But rising reliability from shipping lines – and the inherent benefits of containerisation –continue to mean that air freight appeals only to the few.“The sea mode is becoming more efficient and quicker,” said FIATA’s vice president, Keshav Tanna. “There are weekly schedules and it’s exceedingly difficult to market just air freight.”Samir Shah, chairman of the Indian Freight Forwarders’ Association (FFFAI), agreed that the container was a key advantage for sea.

UK added 700 MW of FIT-driven PV in 2014, figures show

first_imgUK added 700 MW of FIT-driven PV in 2014, figures showData from the Department of Energy and Climate Change reveals some 125,000 homes added solar to their rooftops last year, triggering latest FIT reduction. January 23, 2015 Ian Clover Installations Manufacturing Markets Markets & Policy Share The U.K.’s residential rooftop PV sector enjoyed healthy and steady growth in 2014 as 125,000 homes added a solar system to their roof last year. Data published today by the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) reveals that overall, some 700 MW of solar PV capacity was added to the U.K.’s small-scale sector in 2014 – a healthy level of growth for the country’s FIT-eligible solar sector, said David Pickup, business analyst at the Solar Trade Association (STA). “These latest statistics show that the FIT solar PV market is seeing healthy growth with plenty of solar going up on domestic and commercial roofs as well as small solar farms,” he said. The U.K. FIT is subject to regular reductions that are either triggered by volumes being met or a nine-month period being reached. Today’s announcement that the tariff for residential-size installations (sub 5 kW) is set to be reduced from April is the first time since 2012 that such a reduction has been triggered by installation growth rather than an automatic nine-month reduction. However, despite growth of more than 50% in the 10 kw – 50 kW sector (driven largely by deployment on schools, village halls and business units) between October and December, the added capacity was not enough to trigger a reduction in the tariff for this band. “We are particularly pleased to see good levels of growth in the larger rooftop market with 33 MW of solar – 164 installations – installed in the last three months of 2014, more than double that in the previous quarter,” added Pickup. The analyst warned, however, that this rate of deployment is not enough if the sector is to meet the STA’s calculations for subsidy-free solar. “Our Solar Independence Plan sets out how we can restructure the FIT to get more solar for very little extra money and give a path to zero subsidy.” Within the largest FIT-eligible band (50 kW to 5 MW), deployment was of a sufficient rate to trigger a FIT degression, but such a reduction was already on the cards either way. Speaking to pv magazine, IHS solar analyst Lauren Cook said that they were expecting an average of 40 MW of residential rooftop PV deployment each month in 2015. “The residential sector in the UK has remained quite separate from the boom that we have seen in large-scale UK PV and the commercial sector,” said Cook. “We do not envisage major residential growth in 2015. There will be the odd peak and trough when the FIT changes, but generally we foresee a stable year or two for residential PV in the U.K.”Popular content The Hydrogen Stream: 20 MW green hydrogen plant in Finland, two Australian projects move forward Sergio Matalucci 20 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Storegga, Shell and Harbour Energy want to set up a 20 MW blue hydrogen production facility in the U.K. Australia’s Origin Energy wants to build a hy… Enabling aluminum in batteries Mark Hutchins 27 April 2021 pv-magazine.com Scientists in South Korea and the UK demonstrated a new cathode material for an aluminum-ion battery, which achieved impressive results in both speci… ITRPV: Large formats are here to stay Mark Hutchins 29 April 2021 pv-magazine.com The 2021 edition of the International Technology Roadmap for Photovoltaics (ITRPV) was published today by German engineering association VDMA.

Kurdish women fighters

first_img“For an ISIS militant, one of the worst things is being killed on the battlefield, that too by a woman. They believed that they would directly go to hell if killed by a woman. For me, I was the happiest woman, as I could send a few men to hell,” told 19-year-old Sterek Judhi, a Kurdish fighter, in a story done by Bhanu Prakash Chandra in January 2020. The Kurdish women fighters made headlines when it got covered by Kurdish media agencies in march 2014 saying ‘YPJ troops have become vital in the battle’.Women became part of a civil war of Syria since early 2011 when the mixed-sex YXG was founded in 2012 and later named as YPG. YPJ ( yekineyen parastina gel) was founded on 3 April 2013, strictly a women’s organization and with the first battalion formed in Jindires. Up to 2017, approximately 24,000 female fighters within the age of 18 to 40 volunteered to be its part. YPJ and YPG fought against several groups in northern Syria including ISIS and ISIL (Islamic State of Iraq and Levant) and standing still to protect their territory and civilians. The ideology of YPJ is based on libertarian socialist philosophy on the writings of Abdullah Ocalan, who is jailed in Turkey. Ocalan is a believer in liberating women and stated that gender equality and women’s liberation is necessary for Kurdish liberation.These women are now the no.1 target in Syria. Last year, in October, a video got viral on social media of Turkish backed commandos violating a female Kurdish fighter’s body. The use of sexual violence in the battleground is not a new case. Raping a woman leave a stronger mark than killing her. ‘I’ll rather kill myself than fall into their hands’ said Viyan, combat fighter. These women were praised and got support from feminists and other organizations worldwide for their courage in fighting against an immoral group of our times, ISIS.They are breaking stereotypes and fighting against patriarchy for independence. ‘Ordinary girls have no value in our society but as fighters, we are respected’ says one of the female Kurdish fighters. The fascinating aspect is that they are on the front lines, taking equal part alongside men facing the same enemy and same danger. A male soldier of YPJ said it doesn’t matter if you are a man or a woman, both fight side by side. They are given proper training before sending them to the battlefield. the training begins at 4 am in the morning, besides theory classes, marching, they are taught how to shoot, how to stay psychologically strong on the field and also the medical care. According to a report, YPG was involved in rescuing 10000 Yazidis in august 2014 facing genocide by ISIL.They are fighting for not becoming a slave and are changing the whole narrative of the role of females in conflict regions.last_img read more

Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping: Round 12

Horse Sport Enews The Swedish team recorded a convincing victory in the twelfth leg of the Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping 2013 series at Sopot in Poland today to move within one point of the leading Belgians on the Europe Division 2 league table. Sylve Soderstrand deliberately selected a strong side for this qualifier with the intention of boosting his country’s position at this stage in the series, and with his sights set on a return to Europe Division 1 next season.A clean sheet for all four of his riders first time out put them firmly in the driving seat at the end of the first round, and anchorman, Peder Fredricson, was not required to jump a second time when team-mates Malin Baryard-Johnsson and Emma Emanuelsson recorded two of the three double-clears of the day to clinch it. Belgium finished second despite the elimination of Ludo Phillipaerts who took a fall first time out, but perhaps the biggest and most heartening surprise of the day was the third-place result for the Hungarian side who finished with just one fault more than the Belgians as the exciting competition drew to a close.A total of 13 teams started in round one, but only six returned for the second round and it was the Norwegians who slotted into fourth ahead of The Netherlands who slipped from second to fifth in the closing stages as their performance deteriorated. Switzerland finished sixth, but, like the Dutch, their second-round effort was considerably less impressive as they added 32 additional faults to complete on a big total of 41.Perfect TestThe Hippodrome at the seaside town of Sopot, which lies on the southern coast of the Baltic Sea in northern Poland, was bathed in bright sunlight throughout the class, and course designer, Poland’s Lukasz Jankowski, set them the perfect test. The all-weather arena, which measures just 50 x 80 metres, was packed with fences but the lines were all very rideable and while the open water proved the bogey of the day, faults were also accrued at other points around the cleverly-created 12-fence track. The double of verticals at fence five saw plenty of action, as did the triple combination at fence 10, and several riders found themselves with a long ride ahead after hitting the very first fence on the track, a simple 1.45m oxer.The Longines timing system played an important role as the time-allowed of 78 seconds proved influential, and it was the single time penalties collected by Hungary’s last-line rider Laszlo Toth that prevented his side from overwhelming the second-placed Belgians. But Toth and his lovely 10-year-old grey, Isti, whose water-jumping expertise was second to none, demonstrated the inspirational quality of this series which is exposing talent and potential in a way that has never previously been possible. Team-mate Emil Orban and Lacapo set his country on the road to a great result with a trail-blazing clear, and while many teams with much more experience wilted in the closing stages, the Hungarians remained impressive to the end.First Round ConcludedAs the first round concluded the Dutch were only a single penalty-point adrift of the leading Swedes. Michel Hendrix was double-jobbing as both pathfinder and Dutch Chef d’Equipe, and, partnering Wait and See, showed the way with just that single time penalty. Bart Heselbekke (Wigeunerin) and Stephanie Brugmann (Waldo) were both foot-perfect so Wesley Heydens wisely decided to retire after Dallas du Domaine Z had three fences down.The Hungarians were in third carrying just five faults when counting a single error from third-line rider Gabor Szabo (Timpex Cabale), Toth’s first time fault and benefitting from Orban’s opening clear, with the 17 collected by Szabolcs Krucso (Chacco Boy) discounted.Next in line were four teams carrying nine faults, but with only six qualifying places for round two, both the host nation and Denmark were squeezed out when the combined times of the best three riders were taken into account. Also sidelined at this stage were Germany with 13 already on the board, Finland and Czech Republic with 17 apiece, Argentina with 19 and Italy who finished last with a first-round total of 25.UncharacteristicSwedish confidence was given a sharp jolt by an uncharacteristic two fences down, the opening oxer and the vertical at fence three, for the Olympic partnership of Jens Fredricson and Lunatic as round two began. But the second outing proved much more difficult for almost all the other remaining teams too, with three of the Dutch going into the water en route to their additional 20 penalties which put them right out of contention. Norway added nine more despite a very happy clear from Ole Kristoffer Meland and CC Top, and the Swiss really fell apart with an additional 32, anchorman Beat Mandli retiring after lowering the triple bar for a second time and then faulting at the water with Croesus.Clears from Jos Lansink (Santa Maria) and the second part of his double-clear from Dirk Demeersman (Bufero van het Panishof) strengthened the Belgian challenge so they only had to count one of the single errors from Phlippaerts and Rik Hemeryck (Papillon Z) this time out. This saw them rocket up the leaderboard, yet this top-class team still only finished with the narrowest of advantages over Hungary whose pathfinder, Orban, made it all the way to the very last fence before leaving that on the floor. Hungary could only count three scores when Krucso didn’t line out this time, so Szabo’s mistake at the water therefore had to be added to their tally as did Toth’s time fault for a total of 14 faults.Meanwhile Jens Fredricson’s shaky second-round start was swept aside by two more glorious clears from Baryard-Johnson with the spectacular Baltimore and Emanuelsson with the ever-improving and very promising Titan to seal it for Sweden however. A clear from Jens’ brother, Peder, could have seen them finish with a totally clean sheet but by now it was unnecessary for him to return to the ring as the job was done, and very neatly indeed.Important VictorySwedish team manager, Sylve Soderstrand described today’s success as “a very important victory for us if we want to be at the top – this is our big goal this year”. And he had a lot of nice things to say about the venue at Sopot which has been hosting Nations Cup competitions for the last 60 years.“The reason we came (to Sopot) is because we have seen the progress the show has made in the last few years. We asked to compete in this competition because it has grown in reputation a lot, as has the quality of the organisation” he explained.Baryard-Johnsson was delighted with Baltimore’s performance. “It is his first Nations Cup ever – he is a great horse for the future” she said. Last-line rider, Peder Fredricson, said he didn’t have a problem with not having to come back to the ring for the second round – “I have been riding since 8 o’clock this morning!” he said with a laugh.While the Fredricsons and Baryard-Johnsson are multiple medallists and steeped in experience, it is only the beginning of Emanuelsson’s career and she is blossoming into some considerable talent this season. Successful at Junior and Young Rider level, she went on to compete in Senior competition only to lose her top horse to injury. “That left me out of the loop for almost two years” said the 27-year-old rider today, “so I just had to concentrate on producing young horses instead”. One of those young horses was Titan however, and with this reliable grey she has already shown real progression throughout this Furusiyya season. A rider-error led to a stop in Drammen, Norway last month but this is a trusting partnership and Titan lost none of his confidence that day, simply popping easily over the same fence when re-presented and finishing with a flourish. In Copenhagen, Denmark three weeks ago they produced a clear and a four-fault effort and today they never touched a pole.Sweden now lies just one point adrift of Belgium at the top of the Europe Division 2 leaderboard, but there are still five more legs to go in this Division before the line-up for the inaugural Furusiyya FEI Nations Cup™ Jumping final takes place. Budapest in Hungary is the next port of call in Division 2 in July, but before then the Furusiyya action resumes next Friday, 21 June, with the Europe Division 1 fixture in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.Results1.

Gal Wins Reem Acra Opening Leg at Odense

first_img Email* Subscribe to the Horse Sport newsletter and get an exclusive bonus digital edition! The Dutch were in dominant form at the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage 2014/2015 Western European League opening leg at Odense in Denmark today, where Edward Gal pipped Adelinde Cornelissen for the main honours in the Grand Prix Freestyle.Gal posted a warning of his intent when topping yesterday’s Grand Prix with Glock’s Undercover. And he returned this afternoon to confirm that both he and his sensitive but talented 13-year-old horse are a force to be reckoned with going into the winter season.Cornelissen was also runner-up yesterday with her trusty chestnut 17-year-old gelding Jerich Parzival. Going last today, the pair scored 84.30. But this left them more than four percentage points behind Gal’s winning mark of 88.625, while third place went to another FEI World Cup™ Dressage double-champion, Germany’s Isabell Werth partnering Don Johnson FRH.Early targetIt was fellow-German, Sonke Rothenberger, who set the early target when sixth of the 15 starters into the arena. The 19-year-old rider, who was a prolific winner in the Dressage ring with the legendary family pony Deinhard B some years ago, transferred his interest to the sport of Jumping in 2010, but made a significant comeback to his original discipline last season at senior level.Riding the 15-year-old chestnut, Favourit, the young man who is studying Business Administration in Frankfurt threw down a score of 74.750 which would prove good enough for seventh place at the end of the day.Danish 31-year-old, Agnete Kirk Thinggaard, then moved out in front when scoring 74.975 with the 11-year-old Jojo AZ. The busy mother-of-three took a career-break for eight years, and only returned to the sport in 2013. But she proved she has lost none of her edge when bouncing back this season, and she stayed out in front today until German star, Isabell Werth, produced the first result over 80 percent when earning 80.275 for a strong performance with Don Johnson FRH.Yesterday this pair lined up fourth behind Ulla Salzgeber and Herzruf’s Erbe in the Grand Prix, but today Salzgeber, back-to-back winner of the FEI World Cup™ Dressage title with the great Rusty in 2001 and 2002, swapped places with her German counterpart when scoring 79.400.Real battleThe real battle was played out between the final pair however, Gal setting out his stall with a performance that saw him collecting multiple scores of 10. Piaffe, passage and half-pass were highlights, and despite their best efforts Cornelissen and Parzival just couldn’t rein them in.Yesterday’s Grand Prix winning score of 84.100 was a personal best for Gal, and today’s result was the icing on the cake, going some way towards easing the deep disappointment of being unable to take Undercover to the Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games™ in Normandy this summer due to a last-minute inflammation in the horse’s spine. Gal instead rode Glock’s Voice in the Dutch side that took team bronze.“It was a very big disappointment at the time, but the health of the horse counts for everything and you have to move on, and today he felt really good” said the 44-year-old rider. He was particularly pleased because the arena at Odense presents a difficult environment for the gelding. “The spectators are sitting very high up along the side of the arena, and the arena is not so big so they feel very close” Gal explained.The noise of the crowd, and the intense atmosphere, have been a real challenge to this horse throughout his career to date. But Gal feels Glock’s Undercover is coming to terms with it, and with himself, as time goes on.Under the spotlightHe has had the horse for two-and-a-half years now, and it has taken him all that time to gain his confidence and teach him to relax when under the spotlight. It seems all the hard work is really paying off.“Yesterday he was really good, and today he was even more relaxed in the Freestyle. In the prize-giving today his heart was beating normally. Before, you could feel it beating so fast because he was so afraid! But today I got a really good feeling and I could ask him to do more and I could ride him through his extensions” Gal explained this evening.He’s now looking forward to the remainder of the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage 2014/2015 season and is targeting appearances in London, Amsterdam and ‘s-Hertogenbosch over the coming months. “London is one of my favourites – I really like that show” he said. And with the maximum 20 points on the leaderboard after today’s great result, the 2010 champion has the Reem Acra FEI World Cup™ Dressage 2014/2015 Final in Las Vegas already in his sights.Results1, Glock’s Undercover NOP (Edward Gal) NED 88.625; 2, Jerich Parzival NOP (Adelinde Cornelissen) NED 84.300; 3, Don Johnson FRH (Isabell Werth) GER 80.275; 4, Herzruf’s Erbe (Ulla Salzgeber) GER 79.400; 5, Glock’s Flirt (Hans Peter Minderhoud) NED 77.425; 6, Jojo AZ (Agnete Kirk Thinggaard) DEN 74.975; 7, Favourit (Sonke Rothenberger) GER 74.750; 8, Uzzo (Patrick van der Meer) NED 71.700; 9, Darcia VH (Jeanna Hogberg) SWE 71.675; 10, Qui Vincit Dynamis (Fabienne Lutkeieier) GER 71.375; 11, Di Lapponia T (Paulinda Friberg) SWE 71.325; 12, Vitana V (Morgan Barbancon Mestre) ESP 70.975; 13, Broholm’s Highlight (Jim Rasmussen) DEN 70.650; 14, Goerklintgaards Fanero (Lena Leschly Aamann) DEN 67.375; 15, Tobajo Pik Disney (Trude K.
