Lufthansa Resumes Flights to Cairo, British Airways Stays Grounded

Travel and Experiences Voice of America

German airline had suspended flights to Egypt’s capital for one day; British carrier to keep suspension in effect for six more days after London warned of ‘heightened risk of terrorism’
'The German airline Lufthansa resumed daily direct flights to Cairo on Sunday after a one-day suspension due to unspecified safety concerns. But British Airways still has all its flights to the Egyptian capital grounded and plans to keep them that way for six more days. The two airlines on Saturday abruptly canceled all flights to Cairo after the British government warned of a “heightened risk of terrorism against aviation.\' Egypt's minister of civil aviation, Lt. General Younes Elmasry, on Sunday expressed frustration that the airline suspended flights without consulting Egyptian authorities.  He met with Britain's Ambassador to Egypt Geoffrey Adams and said the two sides would work to resolve the situation as soon as possible. Passengers scrambled to find alternative flights after receiving a notification from the airline informing them about the decision which came into effect immediately. In a statement, British Airways said the move was \'a precaution to allow for further assessment\', without offering further details. The U.S. State Department warned citizens Friday about traveling to Egypt. “A number of terrorist groups, including Islamic State, have committed multiple deadly attacks in Egypt, targeting government officials and security forces, public venues, tourist sites, civil aviation and other modes of public transportation, and a diplomatic facility,” the State Department said. “Terrorists continue to threaten Egypt’s religious minorities and have attacked sites and people associated with the Egyptian Coptic Church.” It also warned of “risks to civil aviation operating within or in the vicinity of Egypt.” No American flights have been affected so far.'

'Last Wednesday, 10 July, RCIPS officers, members of the Cayman Islands Tourism Association, and owners and managers of businesses in the Seven Mile Beach area, came together for another meeting of the Seven Mile Beach Business Watch. The group, which was initially formed as a partnership between CITA and the RCIPS, has since grown to include any business that has a vested interest in the Seven Mile Beach area. The group meets once a month at different locations to discuss various issues such as disaster management, trade and business license compliance, and turtle friendly lighting. Previous guest speakers have included representatives from Hazard Management Cayman Islands, the Cayman Islands Red Cross, the Department of Commerce and Investment, and the Department of Environment. “The success of this group has been the partnership between the committed members of the Cayman Islands Tourism Association and the RCIPS towards the goal of reducing crime and increasing the safety of the entire community,” said Acting Sergeant Jonathan Kern of the Community Policing Department, who was instrumental in setting up the Business Watch. “We take the view that we are stronger working together than in isolation, and that our neighbour’s problem is actually the whole community’s problem.” Last week’s meeting took place at the Ritz Carlton and was also attended by Superintendent of Uniform Policing, Robert Graham, and Chief Inspector of Community and Roads Policing, Malcolm Kay. Members were updated on actions the RCIPS has taken to alleviate concerns expressed at previous meetings, such as traffic management and emerging crimes. A major point of concern raised during the meeting was credit card fraud, and plans are currently being put in place to host a seminar on safeguarding against credit card fraud. “I would like to thank the group and our partners for their dedication over the past 18 months in making the group a success,” added APS Kern.'

Why Mango Butter Skin Products Might Replace My Shea Butter Favorites

'Its high summer, and your skincare products need to do a lot: brighten, protect, and hydrate preferably without clogging your pores, thanks. And if they happen to smell like a tropical vacation in a bottle? Well, thats just a bonus. Such is the case with the mango and mango butter skincare products taking over summer beauty routines everywhere. First thing's first: Not all products with mango on the ingredient list are created equal. Mango extract comes from mango skin, Dr. Devika Icecreamwala, a dermatologist with Icecreamwala Dermatology in San Francisco, tells The Zoe Report. Mango butter is made from the seeds of the mango. Some products even feature mango juice; and all three have distinctly different benefits. Since the skin (or peel) of fruits and vegetables is the most nutrient-dense part, mango extract contains a high concentration of the vitamins and minerals found in mangoes . Mangoes contains vitamin C, A, E, K and B6 as well as copper, potassium, magnesium, and beta-carotene, Dr. Icecreamwala says. Mango extract contains many of these vitamins and minerals, which act as great antioxidants for the skin . Antioxidants, in laymans terms, help heal damage from environmental aggressors (like pollution and UV rays) and protect from future damage, too. Since the aforementioned aggressors can cause all kinds of issues, antioxidant mango extract can help in all kinds of ways. Mango extract helps enhance hydration and improve skin tone, Moe Kittaneh, the CEO of Herbal Dynamics Beauty , tells TZR. It also supports healthy, radiant skin and cell renewal, working against inflammation while soothing. Dr. Icecreamwala adds that the vitamin C content even helps skin rebuild its natural collagen stores. Mango extract offers benefits for all skin types, but is particularly helpful for dull or mature skin, Kittaneh says. Looking for a little more hydration? Look no further than mango butter. Mango seed butter is very creamy, so it is more moisturizing than mango extract, Dr. Icecreamwala says, noting its also high in antioxidants. Lest you think that creaminess leads to clogs, you should know that this stuff sinks into skin quickly (unlike other butters, like shea and cocoa) and is non-comedogenic. It has a texture that absorbs well but is really hydrating, Suzanne LeRoux, the founder of Grace + Tonic , tells The Zoe Report. We love it because it is loaded with essential fatty acids, and is extremely nourishing but it does not clog pores or aggravate acne-prone skin which is a real bonus, because I see so many women who have a few blemishes dehydrating their skin by using the wrong products. A summer skincare miracle? All signs point to yes . The rarest form of mango at least in the beauty world is mango juice. It shares many of the same properties as the fruits extract and seed butter: Mango juice is naturally high in vitamins A, C, and B6, which can help to boost collagen production, clear breakouts, and fade hyperpigmentation, Trinity Mouzon, the founder of supplement-turned-skincare brand Golde , tells TZR. So what sets it apart? Mango juice also naturally exfoliates. It contains natural alpha hydroxy acids (AHAs) that can exfoliate and smooth the surface of your skin, Mouzon says. The founder first turned to mango juice to balance out the ultra-green scent of her brands Clean Greens Face Mask, and give it more of a tropical vacation scent instead. The bonus of using only natural ingredients is that by adding mango as a balancing agent, we gained all of the incredible skincare benefits of it as well, she laughs. There are, as always, some risks to note. People who have contact allergies to the fruit itself may wish to avoid the ingredient, Kittaneh says. Dr. Icecreamwala warns that mango skin contains something called urushiol which is also present in poison ivy (yikes). Because of this, people can be allergic to mango extract, she says although thankfully, thats not a common occurrence. Ahead, shop 12 smoothie-worthy products to take your summer skincare game to the next level. Shop Mango Skincare Moisture Cream The Grace + Tonic Moisture Cream is a COSMOS-certified natural, vegan, and dermatologist-tested creamy and velvety formula that features 5 percent mango butter but it absorbs so easily and leaves the skin looking and feeling hydrated, LeRoux says. Grace + Tonic Acai & Mango Sugar Lip Scrub Our Acai & Mango Sugar Lip Scrub softens skin with mango butter, Kittaneh says because your skin really should share the mango love with your lips. Herbal Dynamics Beauty Clean Greens Superfood Face Mask We use mango juice powder in our Clean Greens Superfood Face Mask, Mouzon says. The addition of mango turned the formula into pretty much a green smoothie for your skin it smells like a tropical vacation. Golde Mango & Green Tea Firming Eye Mask This calms puffiness and revitalizes with both mango butter and extract, the Herbal Dynamics Beauty founder shares. Herbal Dynamics Beauty Tropical Mango Barrier Repair Mask Mango butter meets Amazonian fruit butter to flood your face with fatty acids. The result? Softer skin and a strengthened barrier. Osmosis Beauty Radiance Renewal Peel Swipe one of these peel pads soaked with mango extract, among other ingredients over cleansed skin two to three times a week for the ultimate summer glow. Indie Lee Regenerate: Anti-Aging Recovery Moisturizer In addition to firming hydrapeptides, this anti-aging moisturizer features mango butter and niacinamide to even skin tone and texture. PMD Beauty Goe Oil No wonder Jaos Goe Oil has reached cult-favorite status: Mango butter is a key ingredient. Jao Sunrei Highlighter Stick A true two-in-one makeup and skincare product, Cocokinds Sunrei highlighter relies on mango butter for moisturization and mica for shine. Cocokind Fleurs D'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream If your post-sun skin is dehydrated (and it probably is), reach for African Botanics Fleurs D'Afrique Intensive Recovery Cream. Its packed with mango butter and African resurrection plant extract to revive tired skin like *that.* African Botanics Makeup Be Gone Cleansing Balm Mango butter does more than moisturize. As a key ingredient in this cleansing balm, it also gently removes makeup to leave your skin clean but not stripped. Trilogy Mango and Macadamia Body Balm Our intensely hydrating Mango and Macadamia Body Balm utilizes several natural butters and oils to plump and soothe dry skin for a youthful, radiant look, Kittaneh says. The benefits of this tropical fruit can be incorporated into any routine, day or night. Herbal Dynamics Beauty'

'Lufthansa has resumed flying to Cairo following a one-day suspension due to safety concerns. The German airline's website shows LH582 took off from Frankfurt after an almost two-hour delay and was expected to arrive in Egypt's capital later Sunday. On Saturday, British Airways announced the suspension of its flights to and from Cairo for seven days for unspecified reasons related to security. British Airways attributed its cancellations to what it called its constant review of security arrangements at all airports, calling them \'a precaution to allow for further assessment.\' Lufthansa said it was suspending its flights as a precaution, mentioning \'safety\' but not \'security\' as its concern. Company spokespeople would not elaborate on what motivated the suspensions.'
