The coast-to-coast National Eclipse and astronomical phenomenon will be visible in the United States from approximately 10:15AM PST, with the sun disappearing behind the moon from the Oregon coast, passing through 14 states to South Carolina.  Without being in this 70-mile strip, Americans will not be able to see the sun eclipsed in totality.

With unparalleled experience flying into and out of the hardest to reach destinations, VistaJet is offering its customers the opportunity to witness the phenomenon, flying straight through the strip to experience the eclipse as it journeys across the country for the first time in almost a century – unrivalled views with the best in class on-board experience

“Our customers expect the most unique opportunities and the highest level of service, and the chance to chase this once in a lifetime happening on one of our jets is truly an experience to remember, “ said Thomas Flohr, Founder and Chairman of VistaJet. “It’s important to provide the extraordinary for our clients, and this opportunity amplifies optimal viewing potential of the spectacle up in the sky.”

Naples, FL, USA, Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Tenth World Salt Symposium will be held June 19-21, 2018 in Park City, Utah, and will feature nearly 100 presentations from around the globe covering all topics related to salt. Starting in the 1960’s, people from around the world have gathered to share information on the health benefits and uses of salt, salt mining practices, and solar salt production. The last such meeting was held in Beijing, China in 2009. The extended period between these conferences ensures a far-reaching and inclusive technical content. This is, without doubt, the most important international meeting focused on the subject of salt.

The Tenth World Salt Symposium is organized by the Salt Institute, in cooperation with several other salt organizations around the world. The World Salt Symposium focuses on the latest research and development in the international salt sector. It covers a wide spectrum of subjects, embracing the science, engineering, technology, economics and history of all forms of sodium chloride salt and their uses. As a broad international platform, the 2018 World Salt Symposium will enable researchers, producers and users of salt to become acquainted with the latest developments and technologies in this important industrial area.

More than 60 papers will be presented in podium sessions and poster sessions, along with discussion sessions on safety topics. This will make the World Salt Symposium the global forum of choice for discussions on salt production.

Salt and the Environment

The Salt and the Environment track of the symposium will cover several topics that include a number of sessions and keynotes on the benefits of technological developments to the use of rock salt in winter maintenance and how these developments move forward the concept of safe and sustainable snowfighting. Additionally, several sessions will look at ways in which the salt production industry has worked to ensure that the various processes of producing salt also provide substantial environmental benefits.

UK refuses to publish 50 “secret” studies on Brexit impact

The UK government has been accused of refusing to publish more than 50 secret studies on the impact of Brexit.

On Monday, Brexit minister David Davis confirmed that the Department for Exiting the European Union had conducted an analysis of 50 sectors of the economy. However, UK cabinet members refused to publish the full findings of the investigations, arguing that some findings would undermine the Government’s ability to negotiate the best deal for Britain were they made public.

On Monday the UK government announced that it wants to stay in the EU customs union for a couple of years after the UK officially leaves the EU in March, 2019. A soft Brexit proposal by Minister of Finance Philip Hammond is likely to approved which ensures that UK export activities will not be affected by Brexit.
