We took that we’re gonna have some some Bruins players man or is it real real and he’s had tough guys guys obvious it’s four dollars amid an African style. Sox are just there would you call him well I think very little I jury cases Willis from the from the Bruins apparently. You you stiffed.

Honestly if you really aged kids and thanks for coming oval appreciate you coming over and help them out here. With something obviously that that is very very important is no question about. Let’s get right to keep the need to get to the immigrant we were talking about this. Last week. And the whole thing with with Jimmy VC there’s a rumor out there that you apparently did you. Complained and I know you brother I guess is even tighter with a right that truly is rather. Always been close friend and it’s in Amarillo closer to stays there ranges I’ll play on the same team with a but there was a rumor out there that you made some comment to him about Boston not you don’t wanna play here or something like that that’s out there. I don’t know how to get out there because I mean it’s completely false and it’s. Obviously we’ve always wanted Jamie dees here and we thought it was a great effort to your visa to come airplay and Boston have is gonna have an opportunity to play. Some high end players but. I’ve throughout the process I talked home a bunch of most common complaints I am confident Abbas and in our system and I know what together a team as well and sometimes people cassette that I think the media is too hard on me and I never said that I mean you get what you get their yards. I wanna be more contributing to this season and nuance of this stick. Me through the year two because I grew up framing him and I’ve played here and it’s it’s no Fenway Park and it’s it’s great but it is difficult I mean my. When I left here in my family after six years of solich OK maybe that’s the best thing in my moms didn’t you know why do strikeout of Macon area bases loaded they’re getting peppered so. How difficult was that we it’s exciting to play for the Bruins but yet when the reality hit it man that’s that this is kind of tough on not just be my Fam. It’s you know it’s I think that for anybody not just for me it’s just over these are revealed a local kids out its. You know it’s a big hockey market and everybody here is passed in motorsports from the patriots so the Bruins and they expect Hillary to win in. If you know when and then you know on and I wasn’t contribute at certain times ago makes to an atom are consistent basis here and be ready to play. Who do you work on to what what did you season ends in the last two years of Rosa make the playoffs. You first pre season for you after playing one year for the Bruins what do you think you need to do better and equity and working on. And Nazis and so the big thing for me this year has been on the first three starts quickness I’ve been trying to make sure that I’m going to be. As quick as I can and get myself in tip top shape there have been there and I’ll summarize that with Brian and no quickest and out of cars into front of the net and working in my game right and prominent you know score more goals that contribute and not the way that north and a. Actually you’re saying it doesn’t bother you playing in this marketplace I’ll put it on hometown cooking in the U and completed the cube which at all. You know growing up and stand with these fans are all of you you know what are you know and I don’t know myself that time. As a hybrid stuff we’ve sort of a little lowest point. I’m on the outskirts of this element let me bring Portland and I went to bring what you you know you know and end the game is changing right now you’re talking about speed and quickness and the team is changing. But I think Bruins fans look at your sides and they sit there today is that he’s more physical. And you know you’ve heard that list now for many years help heal my whole career except your cut. I is that just your game they are are people here expecting something that is just not you and I think. You say I’m being a big guy it’s have been part of an announcement that I got to continue to do on non regular basis having nights various immune. And you don’t dollars in the next night there’s a sump and I need to continue to focus on work on and plays of the game is so fast now on the guys are getting quicker and quicker and younger and younger eyes continue to make sure that I’m gonna do to keep up that pace and at the same time. Bring your physical aspect my game and makes it’s the identity of our teams off. He put you play for the team of eighteen year old Fernando obviously grownup and remember after my rookie any offseason we sent Manny Ramirez knows. Mort said as a fan I think in realizing he’s actually I’m on the team with them you know says that he’s still that. Cross of warnings used to improve because of the Bruins tonight a member of it that. Make you look at the offseason differently do you look at that it seems we gonna get this gently and get this guy or your pissed your brother Kevin for stealing Jimmy BC. I think in we’ve done a great job guidance our teammate and a team better and nobly. We look at you wanna look at what you can do better to help our team went and I think thousand approach for a lot of guys and our team and I think there. I gonna see you know a lot of manages an on president Boston missed the playoffs frontiers in a row is not. Expected and it’s not acceptance and I continue to see a team that’s it’s going to be even went so it’s closely is the lot and suggests he’s he seems like he’s more for you to Belichick. No sources is post game press golf is probably be dizzy. How you know as far as they do you know coach player relationship with them like that I mean he’s been great that is actually helped me a lot especially you know. Plane there’s got to continue to expect slob as players and palate to knowing who’s gonna continue to show up every day and he’s a guy that does force players and noted he pushes everybody in you know is gonna continue to push us and we’re gonna sit there and play for hammonds and when examined. When does a team and move together and move forward in the right direction as a unit there. You’re silicon nearly walks in the room it’s a different for you because you grew up here than maybe others and others can still look at him as not just that that the front office guy but this is. Your kid in Boston Scania and I think if first it was kind of. Whoa or while I’m honest and nearly an airplane you know like you said visa. Is in the front office and he expects. If you rent a room to bring their best effort every single night and he’s it’s pretty cool a guy like around rumors and. Because he did ruler from the big guys I mean it would when you people talk about me Dellucci Casey wasn’t physical enough right because it compared to cam and I mean the which was physical we know that that’s expected it. Well there was talk about the size thing it’s almost like cam is set the standard for big fellas. They maybe should look into yet thanks appreciate it now get a run balls because you and it’s just what he’s done that. So it’s the biggest deal stereotypical big bad Bruins to which you grow up watching and everybody looks at them. The game is changing and they look at it it yourself. You think happened at the end of last year and you can’t speak for two years ago but. Look like you had a playoff spot look like everything was set and then the last few weeks the last week itself. Hello I just came down you know and we’ve got to find a way to get two points every night and note for us also a good spot you know remarks there from Fisher we’re in first place and in the conference but you know. There is some night and it’s a tough league matches which Arriaga Janet’s house right now that. There’s no more of funny games is on everyone’s gonna compete everyone’s I was fine for a job and noises we’re trying to find a way to get to point service and I am learning to do with him missed about an opportunism a couple of. Guys that Backus this group here know whether he plays on the wingers sides in that third senator you know behind Bergeron crate she would. What do you know of and he anointing him personally. Personally I have a madam but Watson playing playing against them it’s a couple years there is a guy that’s gonna. Be very hard play against its I think Boston’s gonna enjoy him Ares. Hardworking guy and sequence of old teammates I guess he’s an amazing guy as well so it’s going to be very pro locker room and picked at a guy like that who can. Play all three zones and be physical and score a lot of goals as well. Rick for Toronto joining us is well great seafront. At least I’m stuck us migrated to it’s like earlier about it I notice them. Expect rights and the only else. And Natalie yeah both went there. It was the last time you snuck into a window efforts on the island practical yeah. Well must have been exciting for you to get the opportunity to my appearance and play last year. That was fun. You know my affairs here in and Boston Providence so. Those funds and had a great time up here and policy aspect out of it towards in the air to kind of get my game back in what’s it called up again I felt more comfortable on. And that I knew I needed do me in welcoming us. I don’t know what the run was gruesome at 34 goals and get 33 games or whatever was done in Providence you you run rough you know. At what point there and it does get frustrating was it just it OK let’s don’t get me. If the Boston enough with down your province doing enough. And is. Part of it’s kind of waiting process you don’t. You know I don’t really know what goes on behind the scenes kind of get a handful you don’t really know so for me is just playing my game and not get pressure is now on down there and provinces and now whenever is it time for music come up in you know put into spots this axiom that’s what they did so. Just kind of kept patient is kept in Austin on and eventually news called come Willis with a big difference taken at least from Providence Boston. I think just in Boston as a different role. In Providence that is much different role like this in Boston I think you know for not scoring all of that the next well in the NHL I think it’s. Now it’s more than just day get a B reliable Myers yes especially in Bosnia they are not hockey yet and you get involved area. Apples on the so I think just being consistent as the biggest thing in something that that we’ve. Yeah it is easier out of the gate. For you I know and by the way you guys are gonna be working at that new facility that is located right extortion and only if we look outside the window what binoculars night is a market looks great over there. Is it easier for you frank now that you’ve gone through this a little bit you know. Yes it’s a thing I’m young and I think it’s a learning process you finish here and you know last year. I kind of get a feel for it a case that in I think it does it take it to negative by day and just does keep on hard on us. I think one big thing she knows this offseason to a new both you guys realizes the there wasn’t no talk back is coming your brother net it was it seems to be distrust. You know Jimmie could you mean he’s coming back next year frank paternal taken a big step I mean does it make you feel good knowing organization might trust you they maybe expect a lot out of you. Desolate it’s that’s good to see. Hold on guys that we’ve had also bring up people and it is system you know when Judy guys out of Providence and even younger prospects come and so. To see that manager and coaching staff is you know. That kinda have those spots to get the papers you know the young kids and stuff and and I put put more trust in the guys we’ve had you know come in past years and years before that shows that they want to though people that are in the system now. Don’t think that you process. You judge a receipt athletes come from out of out of town and you’re coming back into it’s a talent. You know they they they wanna find it with the Jimmy Fund they don’t really know what the Jimmy Fund is all about you probably remember going up like does it. As a kid right and it’s we generate funds is something dollars to its home with me with both my parents. Both battling cancer in both the and helped him by now it’s always been a soft spot for me and it’s as though it’s great to see. Everyone in Massachusetts through all the sports teams the matter we play and it’s just the great cause and some notes of raising tons of money here recently and it’s great to see that. They do you guys think it’s cool for via Google we all got new ago. Reggie notable for just. Three did you know rank and answered yeah Google TV great idol you agree Google is. Now that they run that pass. I think he says that if he trained though he be better than he’d be better than Tuukka if I said if that’s all I pray that he knows that a bit more Wilfork. Spent as much time as a kid when people walk in the group we Canada it just as good as Tuukka at least 300 pounds. I know reforms. Let’s let’s let’s start with what the that veterans here David creaky joints it’s as well when’s the last time you actually climb through a window that recent now. They’re forcing you guys declined through windows to role to get to a surgeon. I we talked a little bit about last season so maybe you can give us. Your version of that you know this guy he played long enough now. Three years in a row won’t be acceptable with the Bruins fans out there what do you think happened last year. How many last year was last year so we can take to move on he was he was the offending any kind of still hurts but you know it was a long summer. And we have some new players you all excited you seasons so you know we’ve been running for everything out there and make sure we get in the plan is that’s. That’s what city of Boston deserves that service should be playing and now. Yes so there are excited facetime itself can be to get it started. Punitive one of the things that Christian I was talked about missing is a fine line up of playing hurt being injured everything else in this then you later. Sometimes you’ll get credit instead he gave blame asking you what’s wrong they don’t know what’s going on behind the scenes though. Which Daschle half how healthy you right now physically where US and last year there was times when you get here about how you’re nicked up playing through it. BL OO one thing is that fans are passionate which is awesome you know when this is lows and highs seen everything in every sport in Boston but. Yeah I’ve I was Diana had surgery. I’m I’m getting close to 9% of the day’s gonna step forward so. Getting there I was effectiveness here. Last lessening gaze was it was pretty tough was this playing through a lot but. So everyone else in Ono and open a place 82 games perfectly healthy self. You know I was just unfortunate that I had to get destitute and after the season but that. I’m obligated to eagle and can be to get it started. BAC last year’s last year but you know of course we’re gonna look back all the time doesn’t bristles do but. If you think about that what are some things that you notice that you said okay we need to work on this we need better at that deserve some any areas that you looked at one season was over. Going to the off season you sit OK when we return we got to be really good at what. Play fuel costs here and even the year before maybe ten or fifteen games ago while we were in the playoff by maybe ten points and then. Classic the last Indian dossier kind of slipped so we have to find a consistency we have to find the right president to step up that. The most crucial time and then we can have that plus yourself. You know we gonna have to. Put it to get you know as a key man and that. It states that it’s an easier way it’s dusty should lead a pill use every team’s batting proposed by itself. It’s an easy it’s pretty much in Atlanta and I felt like last year. We didn’t have an ethnic unity chance and that’s what hurt us that’s what we can mean the games when it mattered most but. I truly believe and hope that Mueller from the mistake we had cement was last here so they’ll be more experienced this year and hopefully we learn and and Nabih conveying this experience to march and April when when the game is actually when he matter.

Renting a Car from Smaller Company Can Be a Traveler’s Best Bet – TravelPulse

Photo Credit: National Car Rental

Anyone who has traveled for work or pleasure knows the potential headaches and drama that can come with renting a car, but is there a better way?

Next time you hit the road, consider renting your vehicle from a smaller company.

While big-name companies like Enterprise, Avis and Hertz are more established and can offer a wider variety of cars, the smaller brands like Fox Rent A Car, E-Z Rent-A-Car, Advantage Rent a Car and Dollar Rent a Car can offer bigger discounts and better service.

For customers who use the larger car rental companies, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle when they serve so many people.

On the other hand, the smaller brands have to work extra hard to not only get customers in the door, but also keep them coming back. It is not true for every company, but the desire to build return customers is a good indication that smaller rental car businesses will offer more personal, one-on-one service for customers.

As a consumer, the best bet to finding a great deal for your particular trip is doing the proper research ahead of time. While renting from a larger company may be the best option in one city, a local company serving only a specific region may be the best bet in another city. The key is doing the homework ahead of your journey to ensure you get the best possible deals and service.

For example, using Philadelphia International Airport as our starting location and comparing the much larger Enterprise to the smaller Dollar in terms of the same economy car rental, Enterprise’s base charge is .99 per day and Dollar’s rate is only a day. The car selection may not be comparable—as Enterprise has many more options—but the price difference is what really matters for travelers on a budget.

For those who travel frequently, though, the loyalty programs offered by top companies—like Emerald Club Loyalty Program from National—offer much better incentives and rewards than discount brands. They may be more expensive, but customers can save time and money if they rent from one business on a consistent basis.

Another major factor to consider before booking with a smaller rental car company is the customer reviews. While the reputation of larger rental car companies usually precedes them, scouring through the reviews from smaller brands can give customers an insight on what to expect. Whether it’s positive or negative, there are plenty of people willing to share their experiences on the Internet.

The key for any savvy customer is to not believe all of the reviews—as some customers are extremely jaded—and judge each company from an overall perspective. If one brand has 250 reviews and most are positive, the negative reviews are likely outliers. On the other hand, if most reviews are negative, it may be time to consider another rental car option.

Renting a car from a top company in the industry may be more expensive, but the experience and credibility of those brands can’t be matched. For those travelers trying to save some money while still being treated with respect, renting you vehicle from a smaller company may be your best bet.

Travel and Tourism in Brazil to 2020 – PR Newswire (press release)

After recording strong growth in 2014 thanks to the FIFA World Cup, Brazil’s inbound tourism returned to normal levels. The outbreak of the Zika virus in the country had an adverse impact on international arrivals and, on the whole, total inbound trips fell by -1.6% in 2015. International departures also declined in 2015 due to a weak real, which made outbound trips costlier. Along with weak economic growth, this facilitated the growth of domestic tourism, which expanded by 6% in 2015. Over the forecast period (2016-2020), domestic trips are expected to grow at an average annual rate of 7.3% to reach 340.7 million by 2020. Inbound trips are projected to increase from 6.3 million in 2015 to 8.4 million by 2020. Outbound trips are forecast to expand at a CAGR of 2.1%, rising from 8.5 million in 2015 to 9.4 million by 2020.

Key Findings
- In December 2015, the Brazilian Government announced a visa waiver for tourists from Australia, Canada, the US, and Japan to attract more visitors to the Olympics. The waiver will be valid between June 1 and September 18, 2016. The move is expected to increase visitors from these nationalities to Brazil by 20%; tourists will be able stay in Brazil for up to 90 days

- The decreased economic activity resulted in fewer business travelers to Rio de Janeiro city and the Zika virus has only made the situation worse. In readiness for the Olympic

- Games, there was an increase in room supply in the Rio de Janeiro state; more than 4,000 rooms opened in 2015. However, increasing supply and decreasing travelers means the occupancy rate decreased from 72% in 2014 to 62% in 2015. The Olympic games (to be held in August 2016) is expected to attract more tourists to the city, and occupancy rates and ADR are likely to increase in 2016

WHAT’S HOT Tesla Model X. Maserati GranTurismo Convertible. Aston Martin V8 Vantage. Those are just a couple cars for rent on the “Elite in Los Angeles” board, but it’s not all about expensive cars. If you’re looking for adventure, tap the filters to fit your needs. Results after searching for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler in Denver with built-in navigation, Bluetooth audio streaming and a bike or ski rack yielded one for a day, with discounts up to 10 percent per week or up to 18 percent per month. There currently aren’t any rentals in New York, but there are plenty in New Jersey. If you want to list your car, Turo will set its rental price based on location, market value, time of year, etc., or you can do it yourself.

WHAT’S NOT The app (free) opens with a picture of a pop-up van with the prompt “Start your adventure,” but such a van was nowhere to be found when searching.

ATLANTA – Police are searching for a teenager they say hid in a wooded area near the Atlanta airport, and then pulled a gun on a driver and carjacked his BMW.

The victim thinks thieves are getting more aggressive.

“You wouldn’t think it of happening at an airport,” the victim told Channel 2’s Matt Johnson, asking not to be identified.

The man told Johnson he never thought someone would carjack him at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

He was on his way back to work at a rental car facility Friday morning when he said the teenager came out from a wooded area and pointed his gun.

“It was in my face (a gun). He had it in my face telling me to get out the car, give it up,” the man said.


TRENDING STORIES:


It was around 2 a.m. Friday at the rental car area of the airport when the victim said the robber ordered him to the ground.

The victim told Johnson he started to run away and the robber took off with his silver BMW 528 sedan.

“It’s terrifying, but you know I’m just glad to make it out alive,” the victim told Johnson.

He said when he looked back he saw someone else hop into the car and then they drove off.

Atlanta police told the victim they were on the lookout for suspected car thieves in the same area earlier that day.

“They said it was like three young guys in the vicinity trying to steal some cars from different rental agencies out there,” the victim said.

The concern is that thieves may be getting more aggressive as they target cars at the airport.

“The way he approached me I wouldn’t doubt he would try it again. He did it so carelessly,” the victim told Johnson.

Atlanta police said they canvassed the area Friday but were not able to find the car or the suspect.
