Saskatchewan sets legal age for cannabis at 19 bans drugimpaired driving

first_imgREGINA – Saskatchewan is proposing to set the legal age to consume cannabis at 19 but minors caught with a small amount won’t end up with a criminal record.The government tabled legislation Wednesday outlining its plans once the federal government legalizes marijuana later this year.Justice Minister Don Morgan said public health and safety was the government’s priority when it set the age at 19.“We decided this kept us in line with what the age for consumption and possession of alcohol was, and that seemed to be the direction that most of the provinces were going,” Morgan said.“It would have been a challenge to use 23 or 25 or a later age. We were afraid that it would make it easier for the black market to be established at the lower ages.”The proposed legislation bans anyone under 19 from possessing marijuana, but getting caught with less than five grams will not result in a criminal record. Rather, Morgan said, the pot would be confiscated and a fine imposed.“We have to recognize that these are young people and we didn’t want to be onerous to the point that we imposed a serious criminal record on somebody or something that was disproportionate to the responsibility that a young person should have. It was a balance.”It would be a criminal offence, however, for an older person to supply marijuana to a minor, Morgan said.Saskatchewan is also proposing a zero-tolerance policy for drug-impaired drivers and a ban on consuming cannabis in public spaces, including schools and daycares.“Treat it the same way you would open liquor,” Morgan said.The province plans to follow federal standards and limit a household to four homegrown plants.Gene Makowsky, minister responsible for the Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority, said a price for cannabis is likely to be suggested by the Crown agency from time to time. That will be a delicate balancing act, he said.“You’ll want to find that spot where you want to get rid of the black market, but you don’t want to make it so cheap as to … make it that much more available, particularly to young people,” he said. “We don’t know at this point what the exact price will be.”Makowsky has already said the sale of legal cannabis will be handled by the private sector with government oversight. Some 51 retail cannabis permits are being made available in 32 communities.Retailers will have to pass a “good character” test similar to that required for alcohol sales. Makowsky said retailers will be allowed to purchase cannabis from out-of-province suppliers.last_img read more

MEG Energy to waive rights plan in takeover fight with Husky Energy

first_imgThe takeover was worth about $3.3 billion when proposed in September but has fallen to less than $2.5 billion because of deterioration in Husky’s share price.Earlier this week, a CIBC oil and gas analyst said the recent deterioration in crude oil prices makes it unlikely that a better offer will emerge to force Husky to sweeten its hostile bid.Husky has said that it has received all necessary regulatory approvals for the takeover of MEG and is now waiting for shareholders’ response to its offer which expires in mid-January. CALGARY, A.B. – MEG Energy Corp. says it will waive its shareholder rights plan in its fight against a hostile takeover offer by Husky Energy Inc.However, the company says it continues to unanimously recommend shareholders reject Husky’s cash-and-share offer.MEG noted that since Husky announced its intention to make its offer on Sept. 30, Husky’s share price has fallen more than 30 percent, eroding the value of the offer.last_img read more

Sun News makes case to CRTC for mandatory carriage

GATINEAU, Que. — Sun News Network, the conservative-minded upstart that vowed to shake up the media landscape when it launched two years ago, made its pitch Tuesday to the federal broadcast regulator for a guaranteed spot on the dial.The Quebecor-owned network is seeking what is known as mandatory carriage from the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission, which would require the channel to be included in every basic cable and satellite package across Canada.Mandatory carriage would generate significant revenue for the network, which is proposing that it would earn 18 cents a month from every household that subscribes to a basic cable or satellite package.That would help offset the network’s losses, which were $17 million in 2012 — a situation that Quebecor calls “clearly unsustainable.”Sun News says the current distribution agreements are inadequate to support the channel, which is only offered in 40% of Canadian households.It says such distribution challenges also hurt advertising revenues.“We’re here because Sun News has not been getting a fair shake,” said Luc Lavoie, the network’s head of development.“From stratospheric channel placement to limited market access, Canada’s cable and satellite distributors have taken the choice to watch Canadian programming away from consumers.”Quebecor wants the CRTC to require that Sun News be carried on all analog and digital basic services in Canada through the end of 2017. It would then be treated like other “Category C” services.“Our plan would allow Sun News to establish an audience under similar rules and regulations to those afforded CBC Newsworld and CTV News Channel for 21 and 13 years respectively,” the company said in filings to the CRTC.“We don’t begrudge our competitors in any way, we simply want the same rules that they enjoyed — at least for the next five years.”Cable and satellite providers who also own news channels do not want competition from Sun News, said Kory Teneycke, the network’s vice president. He also argued Sun News ought to have a lower place on the dial, so more people will see it.“We’re here as a new entrant because we see an opportunity in the market … to provide Canadian content that Canadians want to watch,” Teneycke said.“But in order to do that, we have to be able to put the product in front of Canadians, and our competitors have no interest in seeing that happen.”Not granting Sun News mandatory carriage would effectively bar any new channel from entering the market, Lavoie said.“All we’re saying is, make sure that people see our product. Make sure they see it for five years at a reasonable and fair price … let’s do that for five years, and if in five years, it hasn’t worked, we’re dead,” he said.“But if we’re not exposed, if we’re not distributed, then nothing will ever happen.”Sun News launched in April 2011, and was promptly dubbed “Fox News North” by its critics. The CRTC approved a five-year licence for the channel in November 2010 after Quebecor dropped its request for a special licence that would have required cable and satellite carriers to offer the service.Sun News was one of six applicants who appeared Tuesday to kick off eight days of CRTC hearings into mandatory carriage.CRTC chairman Jean-Pierre Blais noted the high threshold for applicants to be considered for mandatory carriage.“Given its exceptional nature, the CRTC has set the bar very high for obtaining a mandatory distribution order on digital basic service,” Blais said.“That said, the hearing panel is approaching this public hearing with an open mind regarding the proposals by the various applicants.”The Canadian Press read more

The nonessential but interesting scientific discoveries of 2013

first_img(Image: Sam Boal/Photocall Ireland)It might be easy to blame your bad mood on the weather but new research this year revealed that the time of year and weather conditions do not influence depressive symptoms. Authors said that while we may not have as much fun and be less active in winter, that is not the same as long-lasting sadness or hopelessness that is associated with depression.We know what caused the Irish potato famine (Image: Shutterstock)Pardon the pun, but let’s kick things off with a bang. In April, researchers at the University of Owwawa found that women do in fact find a larger penis more attractive. What’s more, prehistoric women who could see the sex organs of their scantily clad male counterparts may have helped influence the evolution of larger genitals in men by choosing to mate with partners who were bigger. You’re welcome boys.There is no link between tiredness and now much sleep you get (Image: Mike Lewis/Flickr)A report at the start of this year claimed that there is no conclusive evidence to support the belief that beer causes weight gain. The research claims that as beer has fewer calories per 100ml than many other drinks (including wine and orange juice), it can’t be blamed entirely for bellies of any kind. In fact, the lead author of the scientific review pointed out that the beverage containts fibre, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants that are associated with health benefits.Hangovers get better later in life (Image: Shutterstock)It was confirmed in September that the average height of European men increased by 11 centimenters between the mid 1800s and 1980. Surprisingly, the average height of men accelerated during the period spanning the two World Wars and the Great Depression.Beer does not actually give you a beer belly (Image: Shutterstock)The folks at AsapSCIENCE explained this year that the same region of your brain that registers physical pain is also activated when you feel excluded or the loss of a social relationship. Therefore loss of a loved one or isolation can trigger a similar reaction creating the perception of physical pain.Cheating makes you feel good – once you don’t get caught (Image: Mr_Stein/Flickr)Researchers in Washington have found that people who cheat are more likely to feel upbeat afterwards than remorseful. However there are a couple of provisos – that the cheater is not caught and that they believe nobody was hurt by their dishonesty.The cold weather does not depress us as much as we thinkcenter_img (Image: John Haydon/Flickr)Beer might not make you fat but if you drink enough of it you’ll wake up to a hell of a hangover. Though the general perception is that your drinking stamina will decrease as you get older, science said otherwise this year. A study that analysed the hangovers of about 52,000 people found that, even when they engaged in binge drinking, older people experienced fewer hangover symptoms.Women actually want to gobble up babiesPerhaps one of the stranger pieces of research this year, scientists in Canada found that the odour of newborns activates a reward circuit in the mother’s brain, similar to a hungry person getting to eat or a drug addict receiving their fix. The most bizarre thing about this study was that they collected the odours of newborns from their pyjamas two days after birth.Heartbreak may cause actual pain SCIENCE IS MOVING forward all the time and we’re discovering incredible things about humans, animals, the world and the universe at large every day.Some of these discoveries are more significant than others but there is something to be said for the research that, while not ground-breaking, makes you sit up and take notice.Here are some of the non-essential but interesting nonetheless discoveries of the last year:Penis size matters to women (Image: Rev Daniel A Hinton/Flickr)Swedish scientists found that the number of hours slept at night is not that important in determining how a person functions throughout the day. It is actually genetically conditioned and dependant on age and health.Your dog yawns with you because they love youStaying with the fatigue-related research, a study in Japan revealed that man’s best friend can sense tiredness and, in a possible show of empathy, will join you in a big yawn.

Update Dzhokhar Tsarnaev charged in hospital bed faces death penalty

first_imgUpdated 19:45THE 19-YEAR-OLD man suspected of carrying out the Boston Marathon bomb attacks will not be treated as an “enemy combatant” by the US, the White House revealed today as he was arraigned in his hospital bed.According to the US Department of Justice, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev has been officially charged but remains in his hospital bed, where he is being treated for injuries, including a throat wound.He made his initial appearance before a magistrate judge in hospital. The charges against him include using a weapon of mass destruction. The complaint also involves one count of malicious destruction of property by means of deadly explosives.In this case, the weapon of mass destruction was an improvised explosive device or IED.First hearingHis first hearing in US federal court has been scheduled for Thursday, 30 May, an official in the US prosecutor’s office in the city said today.It was not clear if Tsarnaev will be present, however.“Although our investigation is ongoing, today’s charges bring a successful end to a tragic week for the city of Boston, and for our country,” said Attorney General Eric Holder. “Our thoughts and prayers remain with each of the bombing victims and brave law enforcement professionals who lost their lives or suffered serious injuries as a result of this week’s senseless violence.“Thanks to the valoUr of state and local police, the dedication of federal law enforcement and intelligence officials, and the vigilance of members of the public, we’ve once again shown that those who target innocent Americans and attempt to terrorize our cities will not escape from justice.  We will hold those who are responsible for these heinous acts accountable to the fullest extent of the law.”He could face the death penalty or life imprisonment if convicted.Earlier, press spokesperson for President Barack Obama told reporters Tsarnaev would be tried through the civilian justice system. The remarks came after some Republicans called for the teenager to be granted the same status as War on Terror detainees.“We will prosecute this terrorist through our civilian system of justice,” Carney said, arguing that US law prohibited a US citizen being tried in the military court system.Carney said that since the September 11, 2001 attacks the US government had repeatedly and successfully used civilian courts to try terror suspects. “The system has repeatedly proven that it can successfully handle the threat we continue to face.”-Additional reporting by AFPBoston bombings suspect ‘awake and responding to questions’ – networkslast_img read more

Political intrigue at the Alaska Republican Convention

first_imgTOWNSEND: The state Republican Convention started this afternoon in Fairbanks. We sent APRN reporter Liz Ruskin to check it out. Liz, how’s it going there?Download AudioParty chair Peter Goldberg holds an orientation for first-time delegates to the state convention (Photo by Liz Ruskin, APRN – Washington D.C.)RUSKIN: Good! I’m in the Westmark in Fairbanks, and About 400 people are coming here, from around the state, 160 of them now are vying to be a delegate to the national convention, in Cleveland. There are only 25 slots to fill, so I talked to a couple of people who are really really hopeful. One guy, I noticed, is carrying around copies of his resume, on bright orange paper.TOWNSEND: What else is going on?RUSKIN: Boy, it’s all about Cleveland. The first event today was an orientation, and Party Chairman Peter Goldberg dropped a bombshell, or hinted at one anyway.TOWNSEND: You mean about the national convention?RUSKIN: Right. Peter told everybody that a national tv crew is here, from Fox News. And he suggested they may be on to something. Here, Let’s play it:“I’m not going to tell you what Fox News is here for, but it’s going to be exciting. Suffice to say Alaska, the massive state with such a small population, might have a bigger influence on the selection for the Republican nominee for the presidency, than you might think. And the rest of the nation may find that out tomorrow.”TOWNSEND: What the heck is that about?RUSKIN: I think it has to do with the state party’s rules for binding delegates to a particular candidate. Bear with me while I get a little election-nerdy here. The state convention will choose 12 delegates for Sen. Cruz, 11 for Donald Trump and five for Marco Rubio, who asked to keep his delegates even though he suspended his campaign.  According to existing state party rules, those delegates have no choice but to stay with their assigned candidate through at least two rounds of balloting in Cleveland. I think Peter Goldberg is saying the State Central Committee is going to change those rules to the Alaska delegation will be more influential. Or that’s what he’s proposing, anyway.TOWNSEND: Well, we’ll stay tuned.RUSKIN: OK, I’ll let you know how it goes.last_img read more

Katie Holmes dating Jamie Foxx spends time with exgirlfriend

first_imgJamie Foxx and Katie HolmesGetty ImagesJamie Foxx was recently spotted hanging out with his ex-girlfriend Kristen Grannis and their daughter Annalise. The pictures surfaced online after he stated at the recently held Oscars that he is single which made many to believe that he and Tom Cruise’s former wife Katie Holmes have parted ways for good.As per a report by RadarOnline, the Academy Award-winning star Jamie Foxx spent the weekend with his former partner Kristin Grannis and their nine-year-old daughter Annalise. In the released pictures, Foxx and Grannis are looking happy and relaxed.Very little is publicly known about Jamie Foxx’s Kristen Grannis. There were alleged reports that the former pair once had planned to form a family together. Before giving birth to Annalise, Kristen reportedly worked in PR, but since then has been fully supported by the actor.It should be noted that Jamie Foxx and Katie Holmes have never publicly addressed that they are seeing each other. There were several leaked pictures of them hanging out and even making out on a yacht but the alleged couple did not openly talk about their affair. There are chances that everything might be going well between these two and they are reportedly taking everything extremely slowly.Whatever the case is, Katie Holmes has had a busy March 2019. Amid all the rumours about Jamie Foxx dumping her, she spent time with Suri Cruise at a refugee camp in Greece. As per reports, the Batman Begins star paid a visit to the Moria refugee camp in Greece. The 40-year-old actress posted pictures of Suri playing with a young child. Many were quick to notice that Suri looks more like her father Tom Cruise. “I love these women who became our friends as we collaborated on many different projects this week,” Katie wrote in one of her uploaded pictures. “I am so very grateful for this experience. The resilience of these women is so profound and truly inspiring to witness. And I pray for refugees everywhere #moreiarefugeecamp.”As of now, there is no direct confirmation of whether Katie Holmes and Jamie Foxx have parted ways for good or not. Things have been hectic for these two and their well-wishers are hoping that everything should turn out to be in their favour.last_img read more

Charles Village Barber Shop Serves as Community Resource

first_imgSundiata Osagie and Andwele Ra opened the doors of Reflection Eternal, a barber shop just south of North Charles and 25th streets, in 2008. Always intended to be something more than a barber shop, Reflection Eternal has become a community and personal development resource for Baltimore’s Charles Village area. Osagie described the vision for the business as “a barber shop that was more like a forum for people to come in and have open discussions. The logo on the window says it all.”An eye reminiscent of an Egyptian hieroglyph adorns the shop’s window. Where the pupil resides stands the image of a man, arms crossed, looking back towards the eye that reflects his image, a symbol of the self-reflection and dialogue the shop hopes to inspire among its patrons. “The idea is for you to leave here with a different perspective on how you see things,” Ra said.To that end, the shop sells books on history, plays documentaries on issues affecting the African-American community, and seeks to cultivate cross-cultural engagement. “What’s your history? What’s your culture? How can I learn from you versus dealing with these prejudices that we have about each other,” said Ra, adding later, “When we come into the barber shop it’s neutral ground because nobody’s going to tell me that I can’t talk to you. Nobody’s going to tell me I can’t have dialogue and get to know you and understand you.”Beyond having an opportunity to learn from others, those dialogues also enable Osagie and Ra to build partnerships with other members of the Charles Village community, enabling a ground level effort aimed toward community development.Osagie and Ra link patrons in need of work with more established professionals who can help place them in jobs. Young men who never thought college was an option for them are connected to college professors who mentor and guide them through the college application process and direct them to educational resources.Osagie and Ra have also partnered with the Academy for College and Career Exploration High School, taking on two students per year as interns, teaching them about running a business but also that success is more than red or black ink on a ledger. “Success in not always money,” said Ra of the lesson he and Osagie seek to impart on their interns. “Success is . . . supplying jobs for other people. There’s brothers out here that are looking for jobs but can’t find jobs, but I have the ability to employ a man. All our chairs are filled, so that means somebody’s not going hungry.”In the same vein, Osagie and Ra are keyed into a community of Black businesses in the Charles Village corridor that help sustain each other through collaboration and mutual promotion. Need a place to eat?

StyleHaul Shuts Down US Operations Lays Off About 65 Employees

first_img Popular on Variety StyleHaul, like many of its digital-video peers, simply couldn’t sustain profitability — becoming the latest casualty in the sector. In January, AT&T’s Otter Media dissolved Machinima, one of the pioneering YouTube multichannel network operators. Last fall, Defy Media, whose brands included Smosh and Clevver, shut down last fall without warning after it failed to secure financing or find a buyer.At one point, StyleHaul had worked with top digital influencers including Cameron Dallas, Zoella, Joey Graceffa, Fleur De Force, Joe Sugg, and Dulce Candy on original content development and other projects. Last year, RTL had boasted that StyleHaul’s network comprised more than 5,000 digital influencers who create content attracting more than 60 million unique viewers and generating over 2.5 billion views per month.In a statement, a StyleHaul spokesman said, “The StyleHaul management team and board of directors have made the decision to close StyleHaul’s U.S. offices and manage all global operations from Europe. This reorganization will allow StyleHaul to benefit from stronger collaboration with other companies within RTL Group’s recently established Digital Video Group, enhancing its ability to deliver quality, multi-platform digital video marketing campaigns for clients.”Atkins joined RTL after former StyleHaul CEO Stephanie Horbaczewski — who founded StyleHaul in 2011 — left the company last summer.The news of StyleHaul’s U.S. shutdown was first reported by TubeFilter.Luxembourg-based RTL Group owns interests in 60 TV channels, eight VOD platforms and 30 radio stations and owns production company Fremantle. Other multiplatform digital networks in RTL’s portfolio include BroadbandTV, Divimove, United Screens and more than 300 Fremantle-operated YouTube channels. The axe is falling on StyleHaul: The fashion, beauty and lifestyle digital media and marketing company owned by RTL Group is shuttering U.S. operations, resulting the layoff of around 65 employees.StyleHaul offices in L.A., with about 55 employees, and in New York City, with around 10 staffers, are closing.RTL said StyleHaul’s U.K. operations, headed by Giles Drew, will continue. Sean Atkins, the former MTV president who joined the company last year as CEO of StyleHaul and CEO of RTL Group’s Digital Video Group, will remain in the role and split his time between the U.S. and U.K.The shutdown of the U.S. side of StyleHaul’s business comes after RTL last week announced a goodwill impairment related to the decline of StyleHaul’s value for full-year 2018 of around $119 million (€105 million). When RTL acquired a majority stake in StyleHaul in 2014 for $107 million, it valued the company at $151.4 million at the time.center_img ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

Hurricane Otto Two myths swept aside in a single night

first_imgIn 2005 while I was doing a practicum at a newspaper in Spain, I overheard a designer pass off as fact a story about Costa Rica; I couldn’t help but eavesdrop in the hallway. The designer said that on that “Caribbean island,” when a hurricane came, everyone gathered in Saprissa Stadium and started blowing in the opposite direction until the danger had passed. According to the story, this worked very well, and that’s why there was never any news of hurricanes in Costa Rica.I didn’t say anything because I didn’t know whether to laugh or get angry, and because I thought the story was only an exaggerated version of what Ticos think about ourselves: that we can scare off a hurricane with the sheer windpower of the Virgin of Los Angelees, or that divine forces prefer us above other countries more frequently punished by natural disasters.We can say now that that myth has been swept aside. It was ripped away by the winds of more than 150 kilometers per hour that brought us Hurricane Otto on Nov. 24. This was the first time that a hurricane’s eye and heart had entered our national territory, according to historical records. This time we must not have blown quite as hard as we did in 1988 when Hurricane Juana came to call – or maybe the Virgin of Los Angeles, because of her many devotees in Nicaragua, chose this time to protect that country, where the hurricane caused no deaths and only isolated damage.Let’s remember what we felt on Thursday afternoon, before we knew Otto would be tragic. We knew the hurricane had made landfall on Nicaragua’s southern Caribbean coast and we thought that, once more, we had dodged a bullet. I read some comments of frustration and criticism leveled at the government’s preventive operations, arguing that these were excessive. In the Central Valley the light rain and breeze were almost pleasant. If not for the hard work of authorities and the media, we would have thought it was a delightful afternoon, because the roads were even clear of traffic.Bah – a hurricane isn’t such a big deal. Look! There are no problems on the Caribbean coast. The waves on TV were the usual, except that they were narrated in anxious tones by some of my colleagues. At 5 p.m. we felt victorious as a country, blessed by the angels and by La Negrita. I remember reading jokes, messages of relief and thanks, questions about the “alarmist” preparations of President Luis Guillermo Solís.What’s more, I interviewed a serious official from the National Emergency Commission (CNE) who said that while the alert was maintained, the initial scare had passed. I included this comment in a story I wrote for El País with the title “El huracán Otto perdona a Costa Rica” (“Hurricane Otto pardons Costa Rica”) and I sent it off at dusk. A few minutes later I let them know that they should hold the story for a moment, that there were reports from the Northern Zone. I saw those reports in not terribly reliable sources, but it was better to wait. Just a moment, just a moment, almost ready. Let’s see…At that very moment the tragedies were occuring. A swollen creek ripped an 8-month-old baby from the arms of his mother. A river took a house, two or three, as if they were made of paper. In one of those houses was a mother and her son. A river rushed out as if drunk from consuming so much water and vomited brown debris all over a town where nearly 17,000 people live. Upala, with the upaleños inside, was torn down the way a sand castle is torn down when a wave comes, with one difference: no one expected it. Let’s be honest. In Upala, no one expected this, and in the Central Valley we didn’t think the Northern Zone was so vulnerable, mostly because we often forget that the Northern Zone exists.That’s why at 5 p.m. on Thursday we thought that Costa Rica had made it through unscathed, because the Central Valley had made it through unscathed, and our priority areas as well. That was good, of course, but the hurricane continued its path toward the Pacific, carrying various towns with it. We found out little by little – through a news report, a desperate and anonymous WhatsApp audio clip, a stranger’s post on Twitter. (Of course, I don’t think there are too many upaleños on Twitter.) Later came the official confirmations, the facts and the presidential announcement: “There are people dead and missing.” The face of President Solís was a face of sadness and rage.At that point I did send my news to Madrid: Hurricane Otto had not pardoned Costa Rica after all.The second myth had been torn down. Costa Rica is much more than the Central Valley and the regions that the Central Valley decides to watch in any given situation. Costa Rica lost its undefeated record in hurricanes, on one of its neglected flanks. Otto sank its poisoned arrow in Costa Rica’s heel, on the edge of the map, so far and so close.At dawn on Friday, at first light, we began to see our tragedy. The press and the government brought us scenes of destruction, everything that had happened while here in the Central Valley we thought we were undefeated, invincible or “blessed.”That’s when we remembered that we are also one people; that we, too, are the people of our coasts and borders; that we have more accents, more geographies and more realities than we sometimes realize. The after-the-fact solidarity we have seen in the past few days is good evidence of this.We also remembered that there are more political leaders we need to hold accountable, because I suspect that even local leaders are vallecentralistas in their preventive logic and wait for San José to provide, order and aid. For example, I wonder if the mayor of Upala and others did their due diligence in preparing their towns for the hurricane.The good thing is that now we are more conscious of our map, less naive about the dangers that a changing Mother Nature brings us. The bad thing is that we are learning the hard way. The very worst thing would be to keep tripping over the same stone.Read our complete Hurricane Otto coverage here.Álvaro Murillo is an experienced journalist who specializes in political coverage and has written for La Nación, Semanario Universidad and El País.

Hampshire United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Trav

first_imgHampshire, United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineMarch 2013 will see the unveiling of the much-anticipated Heckfield Place. Ideally located under an hour from London, Heckfield Place is set in 400 acres of garden, woodland and rolling Hampshire countryside. The hotel will have the feel of a private home where guests can seek solace in numerous intimate spaces in the 18th-century manor house and wider estate. Beautifully crafted with exquisite detail at every level, Heckfield Place will offer an authentic and elegant country house experience celebrating Englishness with genuine charm and soul.Each of the 60 rooms at Heckfield Place will have their own unique style. Rooms will be found around the stables, the walled garden and in the principal manor house, and will be intimate, secluded and full of personality. The hotel, gardens and landscapes will respect Heckfield Place’s historical provenance and be created by some of the UK’s leading designers and architects including the gardens advisor to England’s historic Royal Palaces, Todd Longstaffe-Gowan.Uniquely set on a working farm, the food at Heckfield Place will be a simple and honest selection of deliciously prepared local and estate-sourced ingredients. The estate is already home to Berkshire Pigs and a herd of rare breed Aberdeen Angus cows, and seasonal produce will be freshly picked ready for cooking.Eating at Heckfield Place will be a pleasure, with different environments for different moods. The Beckwith, an intimate dining room with 30 covers, will welcome guests for both lunch and dinner with handwritten set menus, devised weekly and dictated by the kitchen gardens. Afternoon tea at Heckfield will be an elegant and languid affair, and a chance to relax and indulge in quintessentially British treats. For The Stables, Skye has created a staple menu of four hearty dishes available throughout the day from mid-morning onwards.“Ultimately Heckfield Place is all about reconnecting with England’s past, with future ideas, and with all that is natural, including great food, honestly cooked, enjoyed in the easy company of like-minded people,” says Charles Oak, the hotel’s general manager, formerly general manager of The Mayfair in London and Scotland’s Skibo Castle. “We want Heckfield Place to be comforting and true to itself. We don’t want to be formulaic, but intuitive, honest and elegant – it will be a hotel with a soul.”Private events at the hotel will range from literary salons to musical recitals to more gourmet-focused experiences, including foraging weekends and wine tastings. There will be film clubs to partake in, with an underground, state-of-the-art 65-seat cinema, and occasional author sessions in the hotel’s library. Private health and beauty treatments will be available in the former estate cottages. Pubs, shops and quaint English villages, horse riding, golf, chalk stream fishing and major historical attractions are all nearby.www.heckfieldplace.comlast_img read more
