Family-tastic Fun in Courchevel

Courchevel is a great destination for family fun. As the largest linked ski area in Europe, the resort offers plenty of fun on and off the slopes, as well as great restaurants and accommodation. If you and the kids are up for battling the elements and getting into some sporting adventures, here are a few essential activities to make the most of your holiday.
On the Slopes

 

Snowshoeing – Interested in nature and bored of the beaten track? Grab a pair of snow shoes and wander into ancient icy forests and across quiet powdery slopes. Snowshoeing is accessible for everyone – all you need is the hunger to explore.

Sledging – Courchevel offers tourists the opportunity to enjoy themselves on a 2km sledging slope between the skiing area and the village. The tobogganing slope is designed with kids in mind, and is open in the evenings for some fun under the floodlights.

Snow Cat Driving – My children love trucks and diggers. If yours do too, snow cat driving is the perfect afternoon activity. Families can take a back-seat ride in impressive snow machines, but if a hands-on approach is more your thing, you can even steer one of the monsters around a specially designed track. Children must be aged 6 years and above, and all driving is overseen by a trained instructor.

Adventure Camp – If you have children in the scouts, the adventure camp provides all the fun you can expect. Campers enjoy activities such and snowshoeing and sledging, while eating good food and making plenty of friends.

Out of the Snow

Paragliding – Out of the snow and into the air! For a change from the icy ground, the daring among us can take to the skies. With the help of an instructor pilot, you can glide through valleys and over slopes, getting some of the best views on your holiday.

Climbing – Even on the coldest and windiest winter days, you and the kids can enjoy Courchevel’s climbing walls. The Forum boasts a large indoor climbing wall with seven routes to the top, all of which are different from each other and accommodate mixed abilities. Whether you are climbing for the first time or are a veteran, there will be plenty of opportunities for some adrenaline-fuelled fun.

Bowling – For chilling out in the evening or on your day off skiing, bowling is a great option. The Courchevel Bowling Centre offers all of the bowling goodness you could want, providing rails for the children and pool tables next door.

Axelrod Architects transforms a Tel Aviv home from ’80s glitz to no-nonsense, modern cool…
Axelrod Architects, led by Principal Irit Axelrod, transforms a 5500-sq. ft., two-storey, single-family house in Tel Aviv to reflect the homeowners’ love of serenity and sleek modern design, and the firm’s vision of modern residential architecture.

Serenity and sleek modern

The new homeowners wanted to remodel an existing 1980’s house to reflect their indoor-outdoor lifestyle. Their family life is now centred around a lush landscaped courtyard just outside their living-dining space. Axelrod Architects organized the house around a new ‘Black Core’, a glossy, black glass elevator that connects the living spaces below to the private sleeping spaces above. The living space opens out to nature with sliding, clear glass openings, while opening upward to the bedroom level with open balconies and a double-height ceiling. An open reading/media area tucked away upstairs allows the family to see each other, while still finding quiet space for relaxation. The entry facade of white concrete and matte stucco is perforated by vertical openings and horizontal slits that reveal the indoor-outdoor nature of the home within, presenting a sleek modernist face to the quiet, upscale neighbourhood of Tel Aviv.

The glass surface of the black core inside reflects images of landscape throughout the house, reinforcing the idea of living in nature. The simple clarity of contrasting surfaces – in black and white or glossy and matte – is one of the unifying characteristics repeated in the interior design and the architecture of the building envelope. The home espouses Irit Axelrod’s modern visual language, influenced by numerous international styles and Bauhaus buildings Serenity and sleek modern

Complaint Handling, Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls

Complaint Handling, Adverse Event Reporting, and Recalls

Medical device makers work and operate in various regulatory systems whose requirements are different and not always consistent with each other. The new ISO version, ISO 13485: 2016, recognizes this fact. Different requirements of each regulatory system require manufacturers to identify their roles, as well as regulatory requirements for the role, and then incorporate them into their Quality Management System. Various jurisdictions, however, address the problem of post-market devices in various ways. Complaint management, reporting of adverse events and withdrawals are three interrelated and interrelated processes that need to enter SMM. Corrective action and design changes, which support the QMS process; also need to complete these three processes. And then, the regulatory requirements, which typically involve areas such as recording and reporting, are also entered. Course on how to implement an integrated QMS GlobalCompliancePanel, a leading professional training provider for all regulatory compliance areas, organizes excellently educational and valuable learning sessions about these primary and secondary SMM processes and how they need to be understood and implemented in conjunction with US, EU, and Canada.

The seminar was approved by RAPS eligible for 12 credits against RAC recertification after completion. Alignment with FDA FDA The degree of alignment with the requirements of the FDA Quality Management System (QMS) is an interesting one from the final version of the ISO 13485: 2016 standard, which is now available. The alignment rate set at 2016 versions in 13485 may be much higher than the previous version of 2003; However, there are still some points where it deviates from the FDA QMS. Companies that must comply with these standards should keep this in mind. Now after ISO 13485: 2016, the Medical Single Audit System (MDSAP), and the new EU Medical Device Regulations have been introduced; companies need to update their QMS and integrate all elements if their implementation is to be effective and appropriate. In this two-day session, Dan will provide the tools the participants need for this. The agenda of this learning session is as follows: • Regulatory Structure? FDA QSR? ISO 13485: 2016 and regional variants? ISO 14971: 2007 and regional variants? Implementing MDSAP? EU Medical Device Regulations • Maintenance? Identification of problems ? Serving data analysis?

Unique Facts About the Wildlife of Galapagos

Unique Facts About the Wildlife of Galapagos

Most nature lovers who embark on wildlife holidays in Galapagos are familiar with the archipelago’s most iconic wildlife species, which include the Giant Tortoise, the Lava Lizard, the Marine Iguana, the Galapagos Sea Lion and the Blue-Footed Booby.
But while the wildlife has been studied and documented extensively, from Darwin’s first forays to the scientists who actively work to ensure its conservation into modern times, there are also some lesser-known facts about these wonderfully unique species. For anyone planning wildlife holidays in Galapagos, knowing a few of these before the trip may add another dimension to an already fascinating encounter.

 

Did You Know?

• The Marine Iguanas found in abundance throughout the archipelago are the world’s only species of marine lizard. The white appearance often seen around their faces is caused by the expulsion of salt from specially adapted glands in their nostrils, which dries and creates a “wig” effect.

• The Galapagos Penguin is the smallest in the world and the only one found north of the Equator. The combination of the cold waters of the Humboldt and Cromwell ocean currents mean it is able to survive in the warmer climate.

• With an average life span of well over a century, the Giant Tortoise lives longer than almost any other vertebrate on the planet. They continue to grow for up to 40 years and can reach a length of over 1.5m and a weight of up to 250kg.

• The most common of all the mammals throughout the islands is the sea lion. The chance to swim and snorkel amongst the curious sea lions is also one of the most sought-after encounters on wildlife holidays in Galapagos. Particularly large colonies are found on Santa Cruz, Isabela and Espanola.

• The Green Sea Turtle found in the waters around the archipelago is a species so old it has been around since before the time of the dinosaurs.

• There are five species of snakes and all of them are endemic to the dry zones of certain islands – although some islands have none. All the species are relatively small (under a metre) and are known as “racers”, due to their ability to move extremely fast. Their only natural predator is the Galapagos Hawk.

• There are four species of boobies that make the islands home. The Blue-footed Booby is renowned for its unique mating dance, where it lifts its feet and wave them in the air, appearing to “dance”, and the Red-footed Booby is the only one to make its nest in the trees and not the ground. The Nazcar Booby is the largest species, while the Masked Booby lives mainly out in the open ocean, returning to land only to breed.

• The Waved Albatross mates for life. There are over 12,000 breeding pairs on the archipelago, which represents the majority of its global population. While the birds depart the islands from December to April, they return to the same place and the same partner every year to breed.

• The term “Darwin’s Finches” actually refers to 15 different species of finches. While their bodies and colouring make them similar in appearance, each has a distinctly different, specially adapted beak.

Wildlife holidays in Galapagos offer a privileged opportunity for nature lovers to experience a truly once-in-a-lifetime encounter with some of the most incredible and unique animals on Earth. And, in this remote and beautiful part of the planet, researchers and naturalists are still learning just how astounding many of them really are. Author Plate

North V. South: The Battle of the Poles

North V. South: The Battle of the Poles

Your breath feels like it freezes as soon as it leaves your lungs, your back and shoulders ache from carrying equipment for days and your legs are shaking – yet, somehow, you’ve never been happier.
Traveling to the Poles is the dream of many an adventure lover. These remote, inhospitable locations offer unique sights and experiences to those brave enough to venture towards their icy hearts.

 

Practicalities

For a first-timer, the safest and most practical way of embarking on a polar expedition is by joining an organised group. This way you can make the most of professional trekkers’ experience and truly enjoy the trip knowing you are in good hands. There are several good companies which specialise in polar expeditions so do your research to find one that suits your needs.

Which Pole if For You?

Teamwork and discipline are key during these trips and you’ll make lifelong friendships with those you cross the ice with. But which Pole is for you? North or South?

North V. South

A trip to the North Pole takes around three weeks and covers around 200km. To reach it, you must head out over the frozen depths of the Arctic Ocean. Underneath metres of ice is the freezing sea, so this ice moves! The drift of ice may work against you and the air is frustratingly humid so you must constantly work to keep your tent dry. Cold management is also a constant battle – keeping warm is key to survival.

Sound like fun? Other challenges include skiing against the drift of the ice and pulling your equipment hundreds of kilometres by sled…

Though these trips are hard work, you’ll have plenty of time to admire the stunning scenery as you’re not trying to win any awards. This trip is for you to gain a better knowledge of both yourself and the strange land surrounding you. A good polar expedition company will take their team at a steady pace, allowing you to absorb the misty mountains of ice and the overwhelming sense of isolation.

A trip to the South Pole is usually shorter, coming in at about a week and a half. Unlike the Arctic, the Antarctic is a continent. Underneath the ice there is firm ground so you won’t be battling ice drift here. The air is also extremely dry – the driest on earth in fact. These factors mean that habitation is possible at the South Pole. However, the Antarctic comes with its own challenges. The driving wind works with the immobile ice to create harsh ‘sastrugi’. These irregular ridges are difficult to walk on and navigate through – especially in the high altitude which can leave you breathless or dizzy. Of course, just like in the Arctic, keeping warm is difficult but essential.

Visitors to this remote region are left speechless by the icy wilderness stretching out endlessly before them, lit by the eerie 24-hour sun that never sets.

Though the Arctic and Antarctic offer very different experiences, the feeling of euphoria when you reach your goal is the same and unparalleled. How does it sound? Terrifying? Or thrilling? If the latter, a polar expedition might just be the perfect trip for you. Good luck!
