Re: Article Iraq’s PM Abadi leaves Mosul without giving ‘victory speech’  http://www.thebaghdadpost.com/en/story/14143/Iraq-s-PM-Abadi-leaves-Mosul-without-giving-victory-speech

StephenMac63:   Now is the time that I am expecting the ‘smoke and mirror’ campaign to start. The stage in the game where someone reports something but it is either postponed, misquoted or flat out debated and denied.

It’s gonna get thick but if you can keep an eye out for anything related to the “Report Card Meeting” on Monday, to the return of the IMF sheet that has the international rates on it, in addition to anything that is related to ISX……..all of these areas Im watching for articles to go back and forth and the more I see, the better.

The more the smoke, the bigger the fire (wink)

Went to Mosul…..didnt give an official victory speech. (Abadi) …..hehehe, hes a slicky little devil……he’s saving up for his big surprise…..im guessing hes gonna wait until after the “report card meeting” on Monday……I bet he’s setting himself up for the ultimate “Mic Drop Moment”.

Eagle1968 : Abadi:  thank you all for coming.  Um, funny thing is well, i forgot my “victory speech”.. um … yea thats it.  So carry on & ill just run and get it.  I should be back to give the speech in the coming hours or days….lol

EHankins:  IT’S NOT THE LAST NAN-SECOND SO NO SPEECH TO PUSH THIS THROUGH IMO. SOMETHING IN THE FUTURE HAS TO MEET THE TIMING OF THE SPEECH …

THE GAP HAS TO SHRINK AND BRING THEM TOGETHER SOMEWHAT LIKE THE TWO CBI SITES. IT’S ALMOST LIKE A MAGNETIC FIELD OF ENERGY THAT WHEN THEY GET CLOSER TO EACH OTHER THINGS HAPPEN BUT WE CAN’T SEE IT … BUT WE’LL SEE THE RESULTS.

IMO THAT’S THE BEST WAY MY GUT SEE’S THIS UNFOLDING. BUT, DON’T TELL ANYBODY. IT’S CHARGED AND SPEEDING FAST IN OUR DIRECTION.

11 TRIPS YOU NEED TO TAKE AS SOON AS YOU RETIRE

No more waiting for your annual vacation and then filling it end-to-end until you drag yourself back to work needing another week off. You are retired — and if you’re reading this, you probably love to travel. In fact, according to AARP’s 2017 survey, travel is at the top of 83 percent of Baby Boomers’ bucket lists. Once the realization sets in that you’re actually free and have time, energy, and a travel budget, your next step is planning a few trips.

With your job in the rear view mirror and the open highway ahead, how about a road trip? This might appeal if you were a train or subway commuter, longing for the freedom of getting behind the wheel and just taking off.

Or perhaps you escaped employment with barely enough energy to pick up your last check and bid goodbye to envious coworkers. A resort destination will let you recover without lifting a finger. (Well, except waving one to summon your next poolside cocktail.)

Have you always wanted to discover your family’s roots or explore the towns of your ancestors? Do you just want to see the places you’ve read or dreamed about? This is your chance to do it.

Whether you want rest or excitement, solitude or crowds, low cost or luxury, there’s a trip that will get you on the road to retirement travel and fun. Here are some ideas that range from relaxing to adventurous, cost-conscious to extravagant, with a few in between.

20 Tips Before Traveling Internationally

If this is your first time traveling abroad, or maybe you just need a refresher here’s a list of 20 tips you should do or bring before your trip.

Security & Health

1. Check-in with your doctor and insurance carrier. Double check and make sure that you have all of the proper vaccinations and that you have renewed all essential prescriptions. Also, ask you medical insurance provider if your policy applies overseas for emergencies. If it doesn’t, and you want to add extra coverage, consider supplemental insurance.

2. Bring copies of your passport. If your passport gets stolen or lost you want to be sure that you can still get back into the country, or be able to prove your citizenship.

3. Leave a copy of your passport. For extra backup, leave a copy of your passport at home or with someone you trust. Consider making an electronic copy you can store in your email account as well.

4. Register with your embassy. If there’s a problem in the country, this will make it easier for your government to contact you and get you to safety.

Money

5. Look up the monetary conversion before you go. Finding out that one Danish Krone is equal to just 19 cents … bad surprise. Make sure you do your math before you travel to get a sense of where the conversion rate is at.

6. Make sure your credit card will work in the country you’re visiting. European banks have switched almost completely to the more secure chip-and-PIN technology, and fewer businesses abroad are accepting the outdated magnetic-strip cards.

7. Go to a bank or ATM in the country you’re visiting. The conversion centers in the airport or around the city tend to be huge rip-offs. You won’t get charged as many fees at the ATM or the bank, and the conversion will be exact

8. Always have local cash.Not every place takes credit cards. Especially important places like trains or buses.

9. Call your bank or credit card provider.Sometimes banks think that fraud may be occurring if transactions are suddenly happening in Bali when you’re from Jersey, and they will turn off your card as a security measure.

10. Check the country’s entrance/exit fees. Some countries require travelers to pay in order to enter or leave the country. These fees are not included in the price of your airline ticket, and can range from $25 to $200.

Local Research

11. Buy tickets now for places you know you want to visit or see. By buying in advance you’ll be able to skip more lines, and find more deals targeted toward you.

12. Get guidebooks. Guidebooks usually include maps, key words or phrases, and give you enough detail on certain sites that you won’t need to purchase the pamphlet at the venue. And download apps before you travel. Avoid downloading charges from your wireless carrier and get your apps before you leave.

13. Research events going on while you’re there. This will help you make sure that you’re not missing the best events going on in the city — fun things like festivals, ceremonies and natural events. Also be sure to research as a few national dishes to try. You don’t want to leave the country without experiencing what its known for.

Electronics

14. Bring a charger adapter. Countries have different size plugs and voltage. So if you want to use your iPod, make sure you can charge it.

15. Check the voltage of your electronics. From my own experience I know that nothing is worse than having an adapter and still not being able to use a blow-dryer or a straightener because the voltage isn’t high enough for that country.

16. Activate your phone’s global capabilities. There’s usually a charge for doing this, but it is much less than the roaming charges you’ll get if you don’t.

17. Download Travelzoo app. The Travelzoo app can help you find great deals in a variety of countries, and has options from local deals to transportation options.

Luggage & packing

18. Pack an extra set of clothes in your carry-on bag. Don’t be one of those travelers decked out in J’adore Paris apparel because the airline lost your luggage and you have nothing else to wear.

19. To check a bag or not to check bag. Each airline has its own set of guidelines as to how many bags can be checked or carried on for free. Make sure to look up what your airline’s rules are to avoid any incremental fees.

20. Bring snacks. Traveling abroad is fun, but eating in a foreign country can sometimes become a task. Bring small snacks that will tide you over until you find that perfect restaurant or food cart.
