TSA raising aviation security baseline with stronger domestic security measures

New U.S. airport screening procedures for carry-on bags to better focus on threats

WASHINGTON– Wednesday, July 26, 2017- To ensure the security of airline passengers and the nation’s airports, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is implementing new, stronger screening procedures for carry-on items that require travelers to place all electronics larger than a cell phone in bins for X-ray screening in standard lanes. Following extensive testing and successful pilots at 10 airports, TSA plans to expand these measures to all U.S. airports during the weeks and months ahead.

Due to an increased threat to aviation security, DHS Secretary John Kelly announced in late June new security requirements for nearly 280 airports in more than 100 countries. In an effort to raise the baseline for aviation security worldwide, TSA continues to work closely with airports and airlines to enhance security measures and stay ahead of the evolving threat.

The Aruban Donkey Sanctuary organizes a wonderful raffle

Aruba Bound
Twenty years ago, in the month of April, the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary opened its doors. At the time there were many roaming herds of donkeys and the growing number of accidents with donkeys, injured donkeys and donkey abuse was the reason that a group of concerned local people got together to protect the animals. This was the start of the Aruba Donkey Sanctuary. Ten donkeys from Pos Chiquito were the first to be relocated to a safe haven; twenty years later the Sanctuary offers food and shelter to 130 donkeys. Volunteers take care of the herd, which has become one of the island’s major tourist attractions.

The twelfth Donkey Walk was a blast

Aruba Bound
Aruba’s Donkey Sanctuary twelfth Donkey Walk was a blast this past weekend. A whopping 227 paying participants conquered the more than 5 kilometer-long route through gorgeous natural terrain.

The starting point was the new Donkey Sanctuary at Bringamosa, which also doubled as the finish. The hill-studded route had a watering point halfway.
Everyone enjoyed not only a great walk, but also a very safe one as donkeys Diva and Igor, the Aruban police force and the local Red Cross took care of that department. At the finish wonderful, enthusiastic comments could be heard from the participants, who were received in the brand-new Visitors’ Center at the Sanctuary and who were treated to fruit and nuts (courtesy of SuperFood and Leon Trading). As most athletes stayed quite a long while afterwards, they went home at sunset.

As a surprise all participants of this year’s 20th anniversary walk received a super Stylos ballpoint, with the text `Donkey Sanctuary Aruba 1997 – 2017’. Twenty years ago a group of volunteers started to catch and house the many roaming donkeys on the island. And, as they say: the rest is history.

Nowadays the Donkey Sanctuary has become one of the best-known and most-loved tourist attractions with its 130 donkeys. The housing and feeding costs are covered by donations and fundraising activities, such as this Walk, which has generated AWG. 2.270,-- ($1273.76 USD) (ten florins $5.61 USD per person).

This is such a great initiative: giving everyone a chance to enjoy a nature walk while supporting the Donkey Sanctuary at the same time!
