Happy Thanksgiving!

November 23, 2012

Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada. Thanksgiving is celebrated each year on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States and on the second Monday of October in Canada. Because of the longstanding traditions of the holiday, the celebration often extends to the weekend that falls closest to the day it is celebrated. Now where did Thanksgiving come from? Why do we celebrate it? Let us explain.

In the mid 1600´s, a large number of people sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to land and settle in a place called Plymouth (America). The first winter they had to survive was extremely cold and the crops they had planted failed in the new climate and unfamiliar soil. As a result of this winter more than half of the people died due to the lack of food.

The few people who survived were saved as Native Americans taught them how to grow corn and other crops, all of which were new food for the settlers. In the next autumn, bountiful crops of corn, barley, beans and pumpkins were harvested. The settlers had much to be thankful for, so a feast was organized. A feast not only for showing gratitude for a good harvest but also to thank the Native Americans for teaching them how to grow and cook these new types of food. This feast is now known as Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving has now has turned into a day to feast with loved ones and to give thanks for the many blessings we have received. As many people share this time with family and friends, thanksgiving is amongst the busiest long-distance travel periods of the year. During the 6-day Thanksgiving travel period, the number of long-distance trips increases by a staggering 54 percent!

Jet Rescue supports World Aids Day!

November 22, 2012

World Aids DayAt Jet Rescue we would like to ask your attention for the upcoming “World AIDS Day”, observed on the 1st of December.  Every year the 1st of December is dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of HIV infection. It has become one of the most recognized international health days and a key opportunity to raise awareness, commemorate those who have passed on, and celebrate victories such as increased access to treatment and prevention services. Public support and programming is encouraged to prevent the spread of HIV infection; awareness and education about HIV/AIDS is provided and compassion is demonstrated for those infected or affected by HIV.

Government and health officials observe the day, often with speeches or forums on the AIDS topics and since 1995, the President of the United States has made an official proclamation on World AIDS Day. Governments of other nations have followed suit and issued similar announcements.

AIDS has killed more than 25 million people between 1981 and 2007, and approximately 33 million people are infected by HIV.

Declining new HIV infections in children
The area where most progress is being made is in the reduction of new HIV infections in children. Half of the global reductions in new HIV infections in the last two years have been among newborn children.

Fewer AIDS-related deaths 
Antiretroviral therapy has emerged as a powerful force for saving lives. In the last 24 months the number of people accessing treatment has increased by 63% globally.

More investments 
Countries are increasing investments in the AIDS response despite a difficult economic climate. The global gap in resources needed annually by 2015 is now at 30%. In 2011, US$ 16.8 billion was available and the need for 2015 is between US$ 22-24 billion.

Statistically the results are improving but we still are far from being there yet. Please do support this cause and make your colleagues, friends and family aware of this important day. Thank you!
