Artful, unexpected and designed to reflect the character of its host city, each pantry will be created collaboratively with a cast of colorful characters, artists and influencers, who have a unique perspective on travel. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Pantone, who is as passionate and colorful as we are,” said Amanda Nichols, Global Brand Director, Tribute Portfolio. “With 28 hotels open and growing, Tribute Portfolio has struck a chord with those who seek out independent experiences and crave a connection with the community when traveling.

The Alida strikes the perfect balance between modern design and the city’s timeless charm, located ideally on Savannah’s revitalized riverfront. Designed by Gunn Meyerhoff Shay Architects, the 173-room boutique hotel celebrates individuality and eclectic personality with no two rooms designed to be quite the same. Poised to be woven into the fabric of the community, the residential hotel is just a few blocks from the Broughton Street retail corridor, the Savannah College of Art & Design and the SCAD Museum of Art. The Pantone Pantry by Tribute Portfolio will also pop up at the new The Slaak Rotterdam, scheduled to open in March 2019 as part of Tribute Portfolio.

Theres No Place Like a Floating Home on the Raptor Platform

first_imgThe company is called Raptorboats and the product name is the Raptor Platform. The name is wild. The product? Even more outlandish.Let’s cut to the chase and take a look at a floating platform that is half boat, half home, and entirely magnificent.RaptorboatsCrafted originally as a floating fishing platform, this mini-island-sized buoy could easily be put to work in a variety of ways. Think inflatable houseboat, portable dock, zombie apocalypse safe haven, and, sure, a floating fishing platform.This floating platform is half boat, half home, and entirely magnificent.These “boats” have a simple construction and can be inflated and deflated for ease of transport, allowing it to fit in almost any truck bed or larger vehicle. The design is pretty basic: it’s a large, square tube perimeter connected with air decks in the middle that are extremely durable and can hold up to 3,500 pounds, which is more than enough to carry you, your friends, your brew, and your gear. The platforms come with multiple D-rings that can be glued in any configuration to strap down a tent, pop-up, or cooler (many of which Raptorboats offers — tents, dry bags, fishing accessories, even motors).RaptorboatsThe Dutch brand, Raptorboats, offers the platform in three sizes: medium (11 feet by 9 feet), large (15.5 feet by 11 feet), and extra large (16.4 feet by 16.4 feet). Between these options, the price tag for the Raptor Platforms runs from about $1,530 to $2,840.Apologies to those that are landlocked, but if you’re lucky enough to live near a body of water, take a look at the Raptor Platform.

Army still holds 5000 acres of private land

At least 5,000 acres of private lands, which were taken over by the security forces since 1990, are still with the forces, according to a study, The Hindu newspaper reported.These lands are part of the high security zones. Officials have declined to provide an exact figure of the extent of land that remains with the forces. On the time frame for the release of the remaining lands,  D.M. Swaminathan, Sri Lankan Minister for Resettlement, Reconstruction and Hindu Religious Affairs, said a meeting with President Maithripala Sirisena and the Army officials would take place in a few weeks in which a decision would be taken. He emphasised that the President, Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and former President Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga [who is heading Presidential Task Force on Reconciliation] were all keen on returning lands to legitimate owners. On March 23 and April 10 this year, 1,013 acres in the Northern Province were released and they covered parts of Palai Veemankamam and Varththalaivilan. When criticism arose in sections of the media, especially in social media, about the land release, Mr. Sirisena, in his address to the nation last month in connection with the completion of 100 days in office, strongly defended the decision.On May 7, the President issued an order, revoking allocation of 818 acres in Sampur of the Eastern Province to the Board of Investment of Sri Lanka for industrial projects. The cancellation was done so that Tamils, displaced due to the Eelam War, could be resettled in the lands. read more
