Seven of those eight cases were found in Grand Turk; the Capital and the island which hosts major cruise liners and thousands of tourists per day. It is believed the rainy season is responsible in part for the new cases from October 14 through December 7, 2016.The ‘tip of the iceberg effect’ must be ever mindful, as Zika has the uniqueness of being asymptomatic, meaning some people do not even know that they have it, therefore the true number of cases will likely never be known in any society.Go to MagneticMediaTV.com for the tips and advice from the Ministry of Health on how to be Zika free.

At an auction held late last week in U.S. bankruptcy court in New York, Doubledown Media, a publisher of magazines aimed at the Wall Street elite that went out of business in February, did not receive any “acceptable” bids for its remaining magazine assets, including subscriber lists.“One bidder made an offer but it was not acceptable to the trustee,” Andrea Fisher, a senior attorney with Squire Sanders & Dempsey—the firm representing Doubledown’s trustee—told FOLIO:. “The trustee will continue to entertain offers for the assets. We’ve received some inquires and the hope is that the assets sell, which will provide a distribution to [Doubledown’s] creditors.”According to the auction notice, the minimum bid for Doubledown’s Dealmaker was $100,000. For Corporate Leader and Trader magazines the lowest acceptable bid was $50,000. The minimum bid for Cigar Report was $25,000. Corporate Air, meanwhile, carried a minimum bid of $55,000. Doubledown previously received an offer from a company called Private Air Media—which is headed by the magazine’s founder Dee Dee Morrison—and Knight Images Inc., for $50,000.The minimum bid for all five titles was $300,000, or the aggregate amount of the highest bids for each property plus $20,000, the notice said.A Once-Rising Publisher Hits BottomCiting “unprecedented times,” Doubledown went out of business in February and filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy liquidation not long after. “The combination of the media depression, the Wall Street implosion and the credit slowdown were collectively too much for our company—probably any company in our shoes—to overcome,” president Randall Lane wrote in an e-mail to staffers at the time.According to court documents obtained by FOLIO: this spring, more than 350 claims totaling $4 million have been made against Doubledown, including those from a group of ex-employees, investors, three printers, vendors, designers, writers, lawyers and more. Nearly half of Doubledown’s assets include $1,013,520.43 in accounts receivable—money Doubledown has yet to be paid.In terms of the bankruptcy proceedings, the sale hearing has been adjourned until October 6, Fisher said.
0 CES 2019 Now playing: Watch this: Tags 5:32 I came across a suitcase with ears that wiggle when petted #ces2019 pic.twitter.com/ZJJWQfmoON— Patrick Holland (@trickholland) January 10, 2019 All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 Share your voice Fravel is a suitcase with ears that move and a heart that beats. Fravel Last night, outside the exhibition hall at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas, I had what can only be classified as a “CES moment.” Sprawled across the lobby were five candy-colored suitcases with ears. As I got closer, I noticed that ears wiggled back-and-forth whenever someone petted the suitcase. It turns out this was a Fravel suitcase designed to be a pet you travel with. Fravel’s website describes the case as “everything you like about your pet without the messy part.” Fravel The ears are squishy and move whenever you pet or walk with the case. The ears even do a dance when Fravel is super-happy. If that’s not adorable enough, there is a light-up heart that beats to show off how excited Fravel is to be going on an adventure. Oh, and I have to mention that there are cat paw feet to house the wheels. The ears detach to fit Fravel into an airplane’s overhead storage. The suitcase has a battery that powers the ears and the light-up heart. The Fravel suitcase starts at $299, which converts roughly to £235, AU$415, and can be ordered on Fravel’s website.
