PO Cruises Drought Relief Cruises

first_imgP&O Cruises ‘Drought Relief’ CruisesP&O Cruises ‘Drought Relief’ CruisesWhen P&O Cruises President Sture Myrmell presented drought-stricken Queensland farmers Glenda and Des Gray with their ticket on one of the cruise line’s two ‘drought relief’ cruises, Glenda had a simple dream.After six years of crippling drought and still no prospect of decent rain, Glenda had long wanted to go on a cruise to be surrounded by water but she thought she would have to win the lottery to achieve her dream.But instead of having to win the lottery, Glenda and Des are among 140 farmers and family members sailing on P&O’s two ‘drought relief’ cruises – one currently on Pacific Dawn from Brisbane to the Whitsundays and another on Pacific Explorer from Sydney to Moreton Island.After boarding Pacific Dawn, Glenda and Des couldn’t wait to get to the top deck to take in the view of water in every direction.“It is incredible and the cruise is better than we could have ever imagined,” Glenda said from her vantage point as Pacific Dawn sailed from Brisbane.“Just coming out of the Brisbane River, we had a line-up of farmers watching and wondering how we could pipe all that wonderful water back home again.”Farmers enjoying this ‘time out’ from the drought were selected with the support of Rural Aid’s Buy-A-Bale campaign and the Salvation Army’s rural chaplains.“It has been a pleasure to help make Glenda’s dream come true and to provide support to the rural community in this way,” Sture said.“Having seen the impact of the drought for myself, it is remarkable to see the resilience and courage of our farmers who still don’t know when this rolling natural disaster will end.“Our drought relief cruises on Pacific Dawn and Pacific Explorer will at least make a difference for the farmers that we have the privilege to host onboard.”For more information, visit pocruises.com.au, call 13 24 94 or see a licensed travel agent.Source = P&O Cruiseslast_img read more

It felt like the Steelers game it felt like Atla

first_img“It felt like the Steelers game, it felt like Atlanta last year,” he added. “We were flat. Usually, we have Victory Monday but we’ll be in the lab tomorrow.” – / 21 After Arizona head coach Bruce Arians finished his postgame speech following a 19-16 win at San Francisco on Sunday, Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson silenced his cheering teammates.“Hold on! Defense, we’ll be in at 11,” he said before quarterback Carson Palmer broke the huddle. “11 a.m.”#AZCardinals @RealPeterson21 told media that he exercised his powers as team captain and cancelled “Victory Monday” for @AZCardinals defense— Paul Calvisi (@PaulCalvisi) November 30, 2015Arizona’s defense allowed Niners quarterback Blaine Gabbert to connect on 25-of-36 passes for 318 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Defensive coordinator James Bettcher’s crew also allowed San Francisco to rush 17 times for a 3.9-yard average.It wasn’t until safety Tony Jefferson blitzed Gabbert and sacked him in the backfield, setting the defense up to stop a 4th-and-20 that the 49ers were short of converting. Anquan Boldin’s reception ended 18 yards downfield and two yards short of a first down that would have allowed them an opportunity to take the lead late in the fourth quarter.“We lost focus quite a few times during that game,” Jefferson told Arizona Sports 98.7’s Paul Calvisi. “But we knew we couldn’t let that one slip away. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact There won’t be much celebrating for the Arizona Cardinals.Not after they fell short on multiple 3rd-and-1 situations, not after two turnovers only led to two field goals and not after the run game chugged for 2.4 yards per carry, most of which happened before the top two backs on the depth chart left with injuries.That means there will be no “Victory Monday” when the Cards arrive back at their Tempe training facility. There’s a sense of urgency as the team hopes to get back to work quickly following a less-than-impressive game against the 49ers.
