One of the Caribbean's most luxurious private island experiences is offering a book seven, get one night free on villa rentals now through Dec. 20, 2023.  

***Now through Dec. 20, 2023, Ambergris Cay Private Island in Turks and Caicos is offering a 7th night free on ALL villa rentals. Rates start at $1,020 per person, per night (for 6 guests staying on an all-inclusive basis).

Ambergris Cay, a private island located in the Turks & Caicos Islands, features 1,100 acres of largely untouched, natural landscapes and ocean views as far as the eye can see. The island itself has one of only two International Airports in Turks & Caicos and has an airstrip long enough to land a Gulfstream 450. With 7 beautiful, all-inclusive villas for rent, ranging from 3 to 6 bedrooms, guests have many different choices to suit every style.

Ambergris Cay can be reached both by commercial flights (with a short 20-minute flight from Providenciales on one of the island's private planes) and by private jet. Since the island offers an international airport, private jet guests can land on Ambergris Cay, clear customs and immigration and be sitting on their villa deck sipping cocktails within minutes.  

The all-inclusive aspect of renting the villa makes the vacation stress-free and ensures more time is spent with family and friends and less time is spent on planning and preparing meals or organizing activities. Complimentary activities include a boat trip to Little Ambergris Cay to enjoy the floating Tiki Bar, bone fishing from the shore, hiking trails, bike riding around the island, and exploring in a golf cart. A nature-lovers paradise, Ambergris Cay is home to exotic flora and fauna, adding bird watching, nature walks, and stargazing to the list of experiences on offer. The inclusions at Ambergris Cay include a la carte meals with daily menus, snacks throughout the day, and premium beverages.

The villas at Ambergris Cay all afford stunning ocean views and come with an island host and golf cart for exploring the island. The luxurious 6-bedroom villa, Dream Pavilion, includes the dedicated services of a private chef and butler and offers two swimming pools and a private beach. Chef services may be booked separately for all other villas, and all guests may enjoy meals in the island's restaurants. Every detail for a villa stay has been attended to at Ambergris Cay. The experience is bespoke, tailored and ever evolving; that is the Ambergris Cay difference.

An international expedition is heading to Antarctica this December in an attempt to find and film the world's largest invertebrate in the deep sea for the first time.

The first whole specimen of a colossal squid was caught in a scientific trawl in 1981.

VENICE, Calif. - October 19, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

A collaborative effort spearheaded by ocean non-profit KOLOSSAL is underway between a polar tourism vessel, underwater technologists, and marine biologists, to repeatedly deploy deep sea cameras into the Southern Ocean to try and uncover the biological mysteries of the colossal squid. The goal is to find and study the colossal squid before 2025, the hundred-year anniversary of the first discovery of the species. The groups have launched a crowdfunding campaign to support the expedition until Nov. 17 with the Experiment Foundation, and so far have reached 75% of their nearly $15,000 stretch goal. 

The colossal squid is the largest invertebrate in the world, and one of the largest ocean predators. It has the largest eye in the animal kingdom, about the size of a dinner plate. It could weigh as much as 750 kg (1,650 lb.) or more, and the total length is ~10-12 meters (~30-40 ft.). It is believed to live primarily in the deep sea in the Southern Ocean around Antarctica. Only a few whole specimens have been found, and it's never been observed in its natural habitat, the deep sea. 

"The colossal squid is an oversized poster species for how little we know about the ocean," said Matt Mulrennan, Marine Scientist, an organizer of the expedition and Founder, CEO of ocean exploration nonprofit KOLOSSAL. "It's the largest invertebrate on our planet, with the world's biggest eye, hooked tentacles, and likely glows in the dark, does it get any cooler than that?"

The team is surveying locations in the Antarctic Peninsula onboard the tourism vessel Ocean Endeavour operated by Intrepid Travel to observe the colossal squid's behavior, and raise awareness about conservation priorities for the Southern Ocean. Some basic questions the expedition could answer about the colossal squid: How large do they grow? What is their most preferred habitat? Do adult females spawn near the surface? How does it use its massive eye (offense or defense)? Is it attracted to lighted displays? How does it use bioluminescence? 

"We're thrilled that our technology will be used to attract and possibly capture footage of the elusive colossal squid, especially as we approach the 100-year anniversary of the first discovery of this species,' said Chad Collett, Founder, CEO, at SubC Imaging.

KOLOSSAL

An ocean exploration and conservation non-profit based in Venice, CA.

SeeClearlyAndVote.com Campaign Launching in Michigan and Georgia


See Clearly and Vote Billboard

Don't Let Him Make The Rules for a Child He is Not Carrying... Vote! Decide Your Own Fate. SeeClearlyAndVote.com

DETROIT - October 19, 2022 - (Newswire.com)

As the nation continues to reel from the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, a group of artists has come together to call attention to the importance of fighting for abortion freedoms this November. Artists United for Change released its latest ad campaign today at SeeClearlyAndVote.com and is launching creative billboards in Michigan and Georgia. The creative billboard re-imagines the abortion conversation with a shocking photo to remind voters that male politicians will never be faced with the decision of whether they can carry a child to term.

"No matter how hard they tried and what cynical tricks they employed, the right-wing could not keep abortion rights off the ballot in states like Michigan," stated Scott Goodstein of Artists United for Change. "It's now up to all of us to remind voters that they can determine their own fate by voting for abortion rights up and down the entire ballot."

Visit SeeClearlyAndVote.com to learn more and make a plan to vote in this year's critical midterm elections.

About The Artist - Photographer Allan Amato said today, "What struck me most after the overturning of Roe, were all the horror stories of women frantically crossing state lines to get an abortion, many of whom were underage, victims of rape, or subject to preexisting conditions that meant birth could also be a death sentence. These stories sounded like those of immigrants fleeing an oppressive regime rather than American citizens fighting for their right for agency over their own bodies. And I wondered if the people out there denying a woman her right to choose would reassess some of their beliefs if they were the ones with an unwanted pregnancy. If their 10-year-old daughters were forced to cross state lines to abort a fetus that was the result of rape." Learn more about his work at allanamato.com.

About Artists United for Change - Artists United for Change is a federally registered political action committee focused on engaging creatives in adding to the political conversation through their work. Award-winning artists created unique works engaging communities that tend to be under-represented at the polls, including Black, Latinx, and young voters. In 2020, the PAC created the RememberWhatTheyDid campaign and placed more than 200 anti-Trump billboards along with thousands of street art posters in battleground cities across the United States. Artists United for change has worked with Shepard Fairey (creator of the iconic Obama poster), Robin Bell, Nekisha Durrett, Nate Lewis, Rafael Lopez, Claudio Martinez, Robert Russell, Shade (Antonio Agee) Rob Sheridan, and Swoon (Caledonia Curry) See Artists United for Change's work at SeeClearlyAndVote.com and RememberWhatTheyDid.com
