November 2006 (Medialink) - Call it a perfect storm for sniffles. When the busiest travel day of the year collides with cold and flu season, travelers may bring home more than just leftovers this holiday season. A new study conducted by Westin Hotels finds that 79% of travelers have taken flights while feeling sick, and nearly one-third regret their decision to travel while ill. One-fifth say flying exacerbated their symptoms. Add to that dehydration, which impacts nearly three-quarters of travelers; congestion, which plagues 44% of us while flying; sleep disruption, which affects 60% of travelers; and being trapped in close quarters on planes - and conditions are ripe for all sorts of ailments.
The study was commissioned to understand the physical condition of travelers; and partnered with Prevention Magazine to develop remedies to help renew guests and combat common ailments. So if traveling makes you sick this season, save some room on your plate for an aloe and pineapple sorbet designed to sooth sore throats; a kiwi 'boost juice' loaded with vitamin C for cold relief; and 'liquid yoga' - a tasty apricot tonic to induce relaxation and bring on sleep.
The "Travelers' Renewal Program" at Westin also provides preventative measures designed to keep illness at bay - including things like complimentary hand sanitizer, fruit and water in its lobbies. Now, you have a real bona fide excuse to check out of your in-laws' and into a hotel this Thanksgiving.

In this live seminar we explore the concept of spiritual intelligence. The message of the Absolute Truth is passed down from the Supreme Personality of Godhead. To realize this message, we have to pass through the stages of duplication, understanding, contemplation and finally realization. This cannot occur without the guidance of a personal spiritual master. To serve and inquire from the bona fide spiritual master is the only way to understand the mind of God.

MX2 Pilot Thrills Audiences Nationwide
Airshow pilot Rob Holland's bio boasts that he has "never known a time where he was not completely obsessed with Aviation and Aerobatics. At a young age his Dad brought him to an airshow where he saw an airplane flying upside down, and knew that was what he HAD to do."
It's an age-old story... boy/girl sees planes, boy/girl falls in love with planes, boy/girl becomes an airshow pilot. Holland is proof that this age-old formula is alive and well... and thriving in his home-state of New Hampshire. He notes that he has been flying now since the age of 18 and has accumulated greater than 8500 hours of flight time in over 156 different types of aircraft ranging from Piper Cubs to Regional Transport Aircraft, gliders to high performance aerobatic machines.
Rated as an ATP with CFI, CFII, IGI, AGI ratings, Rob also holds a glider rating. It's also been a diverse aviation career so far: flight instructor, banner tow pilot, aircraft ferry pilot, Pilatus PC-12 corporate pilot, and commuter airline pilot. He currently works full time both domestically and abroad as an professional airshow pilot and an aerobatic flight instructor.
His aerobatic bona fides are equally impressive. In 2008 Rob Holland became the World Advanced Aerobatic Champion and helped pave the way for team USA to earn the Gold at the 8th World Advanced Aerobatic Championships. Rob is a three-time member of the United States Advanced Aerobatic Team. He was the top placing American at the 2004, 2006 and 2008 Advanced World Aerobatic Championships (AWAC). Rob placed second over all in the world at the 2006 AWAC held in Radom, Poland and helped the US Aerobatic Team secure second place in the team standings. Rob Holland is also the 2008 US National Unlimited Freestyle Champion.
Rob has a Level One Unrestricted Aerobatic Waiver for airshows. "Solo Aerobatics", "Formation Aerobatics", "Circle Jumpers", and "Wing Walking Pilot," along with numerous aircraft types, are authorized on his Low Level Aerobatic Waiver. Rob was voted to the Board of Directors of the International Aerobatic Club in 2006.
Rob flies an MX2 monoplane, built by MX Aircraft of North Carolina. The MX2 is a 385+ horsepower brute powered by a Lycoming AEIO-540 Aerobatic Engine, and boasts a structural profile that can pull G-loads of plus/minus 16 G’s. Holland boasts that this means, "tighter turns and loops and a whole variety of maneuvers that will redefine the word 'aerobatic'." The MX2 rolls at a breath-taking 400+ degrees per second and is constructed entirely of pre-impregnated epoxy carbon fiber composite material.
