Worker visas in doubt as Trump immigration crackdown widens

NEW YORK — Immigrants with specialized skills are being denied work visas or seeing applications get caught up in lengthy bureaucratic tangles under federal changes that some consider a contradiction to President Donald Trump’s promise of a continued pathway to the U.S. for the most talented foreigners.Though getting what’s known as an H-1B visa has never been a sure thing, immigration attorneys and employers who hire such workers say they’ve seen unprecedented disruptions in the approval process since Trump took office in 2017.“You see all these arguments that we want the best and the brightest coming here,” said John Goslow, an immigration attorney in Ann Arbor, Michigan. “Yet we’re seeing a full-frontal assault on just all aspects of immigration.”For American businesses, it has a bottom-line impact.Link Wilson, an architect who co-founded a firm in Bloomington, Minnesota, said finding enough qualified workers within the U.S. has been a problem for years, in part due to a shortage of architects. He said employers who turn to international applicants do so as a last resort, putting up with legal fees and ever-expanding visa approval times because they have no other choice.“We’re just at the point where there’s no one else to hire,” said Wilson, who estimates his firm turned away about $1 million in projects last year because it didn’t have enough staff to handle them.Three months after taking office, Trump issued his “Buy American and Hire American” executive order , calling for H-1B changes to promote the hiring of Americans for jobs that might otherwise go to immigrants.Subsequent memos have allowed for greater discretion in denying applications without first requesting additional information from an applicant, tossed the deference given to people seeking to renew their H-1Bs, and raised concern that the government would revoke work permits for the spouses of H-1B holders. One order restricted companies’ ability to use H-1B workers off-site at a customer’s place of business, while another temporarily rescinded the option of paying for faster application processing.Attorneys who handle these applications say one of the biggest shifts is an increase in “requests for evidence,” or RFEs, from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. An RFE can delay a visa for months or longer as applicants and employers are forced to submit additional documentation over things such as the applicability of a college degree to a prospective job or whether the wage being offered is appropriate. If the responses are unsatisfactory, a visa may be denied.“They’re just blocking the avenues so that employers will get frustrated and they won’t employ foreign nationals,” said Dakshini Sen, an immigration lawyer in Houston whose caseload is mostly H-1B applications. “We have to write and write and write and explain and explain and explain each and every point.”USCIS data released on Friday shows an increase in the number of completed H-1B applications receiving an RFE, from about 21 per cent in the 2016 fiscal year to 38 per cent last fiscal year. The number continued to rise in the first quarter of this fiscal year, to 60 per cent.A growing number of applications with such requests were ultimately denied, while the approval rate among all applicants has fallen. Approvals also dipped in two other visa programs for foreign workers, including one for individuals with extraordinary abilities in areas such as science, sports and the arts.Jessica Collins, a spokeswoman for USCIS, linked the changes to the president’s executive order, saying the goal was to reduce “frivolous” petitions and that “it is incumbent upon the petitioner, not the government” to prove eligibility.Some employers note traditional three-year renewable terms of H-1Bs have also been changing; one lawsuit by an organization representing information technology companies claims some visas were valid for only a few days or had expired before they were even received.Trump has vacillated between criticizing H-1Bs as “substituting for American workers at lower pay” to expressing support, as he did last month, when he said he wanted to “encourage talented and highly skilled people to pursue career options in the U.S.”Caught in the crosshairs are workers like Leo Wang.Wang, 32, got into the University of Southern California, interned at a major venture capital firm and wasted no time after finishing his master’s before starting on another degree. His dream of a six-figure Silicon Valley job came true but disappeared quickly.Wang was working at Seagate Technology under an immigration provision known as Optional Practical Training, which gives those on student visas permission to work. But that expired last year, and because his H-1B application was in flux, he was forced to take a leave from Seagate and withdraw from the master’s program he was pursuing at Berkeley.He says he and his company dutifully responded to an RFE, compiling examples of his work at Seagate. But on Jan. 11, Wang got a final answer: He was denied an H-1B.This month, he returned to his native China.“I still believe in the American dream,” he says. “It’s just that I personally have to pursue it somewhere else.”___Sedensky can be reached at or Sedensky, The Associated Press read more

EU wants members to drop veto over possible carbon tax

BERLIN — The European Union’s executive branch is proposing that individual member countries drop their right to veto decisions on energy taxes, a move that could facilitate the introduction of a carbon tax across the whole bloc.The EU’s energy commissioner, Miguel Arias Cañete, said Tuesday that no longer requiring unanimous votes would allow “the potential of energy taxation to foster the clean energy transition can be freed.”Approval of energy tax decisions instead would need a qualified majority, or 16 of the current 28 countries representing at least 65 per cent of the EU’s population.Scientists and economists say carbon pricing could become a key tool to reduce emissions from fossil fuels, but warn it needs to be applied in a way that doesn’t disadvantage some countries or sections of the population.The Associated Press read more

Housing starts miss expectations as condo construction cools

OTTAWA — Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. says the pace of housing starts was down in October, compared with September, as the rate of new multiple-unit homes starting construction, including condominiums, slowed.The agency estimates the standalone monthly seasonally adjusted annual rate was 183,604 units in October, down from 197,355 the previous month.Economists had expected a rate of 200,000, according to Thomson Reuters.

Humiliation was the worst Holocaust survivor at UN asks world to act

Sharing his extraordinary story, he said that the worst part of surviving the Nazi death camps was not the extreme hunger, the coldness or the deteriorating living conditions, but “the humiliation, just because you were Jewish, you were treated not like a human being, you were treated like a louse, a bed bug, like a cockroach”, he told those who had gathered to commemorate.Mentioning conflicts going on now in Ukraine, Sudan and Yemen, Mr. Turski said that when it came to giving advice today, “the most important words are: empathy and compassion”. He highlighted the importance of “protecting our children” from all catastrophes. Ms. Auerbacher also wrote the words to the song “Who am I”, which was performed during the UN Holocaust Remembrance ceremony by the PS22 elementary school Chorus of Staten Island, New York.The role of education and history was emphasized by Sara Bloomfield, Director of the powerful United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, in Washington DC, who added that “after 2000 years of various forms of anti-Semitism, it doesn’t seem to be an eradicable disease, nor does hate”. UN Photo/Loey FelipeSara J. Bloomfield, Director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, delivers her keynote speech during the annual United Nations Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony.Drawing parallels between the horror of the Holocaust, and the present, Ms. Bloomfield added that it’s essential to “look back, to remember the victims lives and to remember that we failed them. We can’t fail them again by forgetting, by ignoring anti-Semitism and by not learning from our failures”, she concluded.The International Holocaust Remembrance Day is marked each 27 January, when the notorious Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp was liberated by Allied troops, 74 years ago, in the final months of the World War Two. UN Photo/Loey FelipeInge Auerbacher shares her account as a child survivor of Teresienstadt, during the annual United Nations Holocaust Remembrance Ceremony.His story followed testimony from Inge Auerbacher, who was liberated from a different camp, on the same day as Mr. Turski. She described how in the concentration camps “life was especially hard for children, for whom the most important words in their vocabulary were potatoes, bread and soup.”Inge was born in Germany and spent three years between seven and 10 years of age in the Terezin (Theresienstadt) concentration camp in Czechoslovakia, where only around one per cent of its 15,000 children, survived.Lamenting the rising wave of anti-Semitism today, Ms. Auerbacher pleaded for everyone across the world to “make good choices”.“My hope, wish, and prayer, is for every child to live in peace without hunger and prejudice. The antidote to hatred is education, no more genocides, no more anti-Semitism”, she added. read more

White tiger cub seized in Louisiana recovering at Sanctuary in Alpine

first_imgWhite tiger cub seized in Louisiana recovering at Sanctuary in Alpine Posted: January 4, 2018 January 4, 2018 KUSI Newsroom, ALPINE (KUSI) — A five-month-old white tiger cub has been seized from an unpermitted location in Louisiana and relocated to an exotic animal sanctuary in California.The orphaned female cub, who does not yet have a name, required immediate medical attention for conditions consistent with severe neglect. She is now responding well to treatment. The whereabouts of the cub’s parents are unknown.“Unfortunately, we see this all too often,” says Bobbi Brink, Founder and Director of Lions Tigers & Bears Big Cat and Exotic Animal Rescue, the accredited animal sanctuary where the tiger will now live out the rest of her life. “The exotic pet trade is a multi-billion dollar industry, often leading to illegal ownership like in this case. Many of these animals are pulled from their mothers when they are only days old. They are then subjected to very poor living conditions at the hands of individuals who quickly become overwhelmed by the level of care a full-grown wild animal requires. This in turn poses a very real threat to public health and safety.”The tiger cub arrived at Lions Tigers & Bears on December 22, 2017, where she continues to receive ongoing medical care.White tigers are not classified as a subspecies, nor are they considered albino. The lack of color in the animal’s hair follicles is referred to as leucism, a genetic mutation that occurs naturally in 1 out of every 10,000 births among Bengal tigers in the wild. White tigers in the United States can be traced back to one breeding pair brought to the country in the 1950s. Since then, white tigers have been selectively bred using various species of tigers, resulting in mixed breeds with the leucism gene.

Elections futures settlements expected to roil market week

first_imgThe week is likely to remain range-bound because of a host of uncertainties, domestic and global, even though the benchmark indices rallied smartly on Monday, according to some analysts.Sensex rose 373 points to close above 35,354 and Nifty gained 101 points to close above 10,628.The nation is in the midst of elections to five states. Of them, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan and Telangana are key states where pitched battles are on. These are prestigious battles for the Narendra Modi-led Bharatiya Janata Party which head the ruling National Democratic Alliance. The election results will not be out until December 11 and the market is watching for cues from voting percentage and the optics in general.The trading week of November 26-30, being the last week of the month is also the expiry week for futures and options. The Street will be watchful for the open positions build-up for making further commitments.The market is in the midst of a promising earnings season and some hope its effect will continue to linger. However, the market would have already priced in the good manufacturing numbers restricting further price movement ahead.A further softening of the international crude prices will buoy the Indian market even further despite the domestic uncertainties. Though the oil took a pause on Monday after last week’s rout, a lower crude price and a lower dollar will be a double bonus in the week ahead because India’s revenue account deficit could ease further. The easing oil will have a significant impact on the market, considering the lower fuel prices and macroeconomic benefits, market experts believe.Opec production cut”It is difficult to say whether $60 is the new normal, as there doesn’t seem to be a ‘normal’ at the moment,” Reuters quoted Cantor Fitzgerald oil and gas analyst Jack Allardyce as saying.”The recent weakness seems dramatic given the lack of actual catalysts – it seems to have been driven by a wider impending sense of doom amidst weak equities, geopolitics, subsequent softening demand and increasing supply,” he told the news agency.The effect of the looming Opec production cut and vanishing Iran oil as the grace period given to eight countries including India ends will continue to roil the market, according to some experts.Significantly, the International Energy Agency has pegged down its global oil demand growth rate estimate to 1.4 million barrels per day from June’s 1.5 million bpd. The demand for 2019 is expected to top off at 100 million barrels.last_img read more

Nation observes National Mourning Day today

first_imgBangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur RahmanThe nation observes the National Mourning Day today, Wednesday, with due reverence and solemnity, marking the 43rd anniversary of assassination of father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, reports UNB.Sheikh Mujibur Rahman – the architect of the country’s independence — was assassinated along with most of his family members at the crack of dawn on 15 August 1975 by a cabal of army personnel.The killing of Bangabandhu, the greatest son of the soil in thousand years, descended a pall of gloom and spread a sense of deep sadness among the people in the country and across the globe.The world protested and condemned the killing saying it is an irreparable loss to millions of people of Bangladesh.His two daughters — Sheikh Hasina, now the prime minister, and Sheikh Rehana – luckily survived the massacre as they were abroad at that time.Eighteen members of the family along with Bangabandhu’s wife Sheikh Fazilatunnesa Mujib, three sons — captain Sheikh Kamal, lieutenant Sheikh Jamal and Sheikh Russel –, two daughters-in-law — Sultana Kamal and Rosy Jamal –, brother Sheikh Naser, peasant leader Abdur Rob Serniabat, youth leader Sheikh Fazlul Haq Moni and his wife Arzu Moni, Baby Serniabat, Sukanta Babu, Arif and Abdul Nayeem Khan Rintu were killed on the fateful night.Bangabandhu’s military secretary colonel Jamil Uddin Ahmad (Bir Uttam), who was later promoted posthumously to the rank of brigadier general, was also killed during the massacre. Some members of a family at Mohammadpur in the capital were killed by artillery shells fired by the killers on the same day.The day is a public holiday.The government, different socio-cultural, political and professional organisations including ruling Awami League and its associate bodies have taken various programmes to mark the day.The nation, however, started observing the month of mourning from 1 August, recalling the most brutal killing in its history and renewing the pledge to safeguard perpetually the country’s independence and sovereignty.President Abdul Hamid and prime minister Sheikh Hasina pay tributes to Bangbandhu at the Bangabandhu Memorial Museum at Dhanmondi Road No. 32 at 6:30am.Programmes there include a guard of honour by a smartly turned out contingent of the Armed Forces, to the portrait of the Bangabandhu. A special munajat and fateha is scheduled to be offered there.Premier Sheikh Hasina is expected to place wreaths at the graves of the members of Bangabandhu’s family and other martyrs at Banani graveyard.She is also scheduled to place wreaths at the Bangabandhu Mausoleum in Tungipara of Gopalganj at 10:00am and take part in a milad and doa mahfil there.Meanwhile, president Abdul Hamid and prime minister Sheikh Hasina issued separate messages commemorating the National Mourning Day.In his message, the president said this barbarous occurrence was rare not only in the history of Bangladesh but also in the history of the world.”The country is now free of disgrace through the trial of the tragic killing of 15 August. The verdict of fugitive killers will soon come into force – this is the expectation of the countrymen on the National Mourning Day,” he said urging all to follow the path shown by the Father of the Nation and devote themselves to turn the country into a ‘Golden Bangla’.In her message, the prime minister said, “Under the dynamic, courageous and charismatic leadership of the father of the nation, the people of this territory brought the reddish sun of the independence breaking the shackles of subjugation of thousands of years. The Bangalees got their own nation-state, flag and national anthem.”But Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman was killed at a time when he had undertaken an arduous task of building a ‘Golden Bangladesh’ reconstructing the war-ravaged country and unifying the whole nation, she said.The killers were able to assassinate Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman but they could not erase his dreams and ideals, the prime minister said urging all to turn the grief of the loss of Bangabandhu into strength, build a non-communal, hunger-illiteracy-free, and happy, prosperous Bangladesh and establish ‘Golden Bangladesh’ as dreamt by the father of the nation.On the day, the national flag will be kept half-mast at government, autonomous, semi-autonomous, educational institutions, private buildings and Bangladesh missions in abroad.A doa will be offered after Zohr prayers in all mosques across the country while special prayers will be arranged in temples, pagodas, churches and other worship places at convenient time across the country.Bangladesh Betar, Bangladesh Television and private TV channels and radio stations will air special programmes highlighting the life, struggle and achievements of the great leader while newspapers will bring out supplements on the occasion.Islamic Foundation of Bangladesh and Bangabandhu Gabeshana Parishad will also arrange programmes on the occasion.Besides, specially designed posters will be displayed at educational institutions and other public places, reminding the black chapter of the country’s history.Shishu Academy, Bangabandhu Memorial Museum and many other educational institutions will organise discussions on Bangabandhu’s life and works.The district and upazila administrations will observe the day through doa mahfil and discussions in line with the national programmes.Different institutions, socio-cultural organisations and people from all walks of life will place wreaths at Tungipara and at the portrait of Bangabandhu at Dhanmondi, Road No. 32, and will hold doa mahfils and discussions there.The different organisations and directorates under the information ministry will also hold different programmes, including exhibition, publish special supplements of Nirikkha, Sachithra Bangladesh and Bangladesh Quarterly.Bangladesh Television has taken initiatives to read out the Bangabandhu’s books – “Osomapto Atmajibani” and “Karagarer Rojnamcha”.Awami League (AL) will keep the national flag and the party flag at half-mast while black flag will be hoisted at the Bangabandhu Bhaban and all other offices of the party across the country.AL and it associate bodies will place wreaths at the portrait of Bangabandhu at Dhanmondi Road No. 32 in the morning.

British parliament votes to ask EU for Brexit delay

first_imgBritain`s prime minister Theresa May waves as she leaves 10 Downing Street in London on 14 March ahead of a further Brexit vote. Photo: AFPBritain’s parliament on Thursday voted to ask the European Union to delay Brexit until at least June and head off a chaotic end to their 46-year partnership in two weeks.But lawmakers also rejected a call to use that time to hold a second Brexit referendum — a blow to the hopes of a large swath of Britons who still dream of keeping their European identities.The UK is barrelling towards the 29 March Brexit deadline with no approved EU withdrawal agreement and a prime minister who appears to have lost control over her bickering cabinet.Anxious businesses are pleading for action and US president Donald Trump waded in to pronounce himself “surprised to see how badly it has all gone”.A sense of chaos filled the House of Commons this week as lawmakers held a series of votes on ideas about what they could do next.MPs have twice rejected the deal struck by prime minister Theresa May’s with the other 27 EU nations — in January and on Tuesday.They voted on Wednesday not to leave without an agreement but still lacked a clear roadmap on the way forward three years after Brexit was launched in a bitterly divisive referendum.The plan they all finally agreed on — after turning down four other proposals — was submitted by May herself: to ask EU leaders to simply push Brexit back.The motion also supported holding a third vote early next week on May’s twice-rejected deal.A revised tally showed it passing by a 413-202 margin despite the majority of her own party — and seven of her 28 cabinet members — voting against.May had already lost her voice earlier in the week and did not stand up to speak before the chamber after all the voting had wound down for the day.”Parliament’s rejection of no deal and desire for an extension shows there is still some common sense in Westminster,” the influential CBI business lobby tweeted after the vote.”But without a radically new approach, business fears this is simply a stay of execution.”Another voteA bumpy “no deal” exit on 29 March will still happen if May’s strategy is voted down for a third time and the EU 27 fail to approve an extension.EU leaders have said they would consider any request from London.But they also want to know how long the extension would be — and what it would be used for — before they meet in Brussels in a week’s time.May’s plan is to hold a third vote on her agreement with Brussels by Wednesday.Approval would then see her ask for the delay until 30 June so that the treaty can be ratified.But she warns that her deal’s rejection next week could see Brexit postponed for much longer.A bigger delay would also see Britain take part in European Parliament elections in May — bizarrely re-immersing the country in EU politics after Brexit was originally meant to have gone into effect.Rethinking BrexitEU Council chief Donald Tusk said Thursday that the bloc could approve a long postponement “if the UK finds it necessary to rethink its Brexit strategy and build consensus around it”.He reflected Brussels’ long-standing position that a closer relationship is possible if May abandons her opposition to staying in the EU customs union.May’s deal has been blocked chiefly by disagreement over the so-called Irish “backstop” — a measure to keep trade flowing and avoid friction at the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.Irish foreign minister Simon Coveney mentioned the possibility on Thursday of Brexit being pushed back until the end of 2020.”It would give a long reflection period for the British political system to look at how they want to approach Brexit again,” he said.No second referendum?Parliament’s rejection of a second Brexit referendum reflected a broader debate in UK society about how democratic such a vote would be.Only 85 MPs voted in favour and 334 voted against.People’s Vote and other pro-EU campaign groups have been organising periodic marches across London in support of a second vote that could potentially undo the first one’s results.One rally in October drew around half a million people and was joined by London mayor Sadiq Khan.But the group knew it lacked sufficient support in parliament Thursday and withdrew its formal support of the motion before it came up for a vote.Labour backs the idea in principle but asked its MPs to abstain.last_img

Facebook Adds TapandHold Video Recording Feature to Messenger App

first_img If you can’t buy them, join them. At least that is what Facebook is thinking.After a botched attempt at buying Snapchat, Facebook appears to have taken a cue from the startup with a new messaging feature that lets users tap and hold the camera button to record a video straight into the message.The new feature uses the selfie-side camera by default but can easily be switched to the front facing camera. The update is available on iOS and will be on Android shortly, allowing Facebook’s more than 200 million users the ability to quickly and easily make and share moments in movie form.Related: Facebook Reportedly Developing Its Own Snapchat — AgainThe Messenger update comes just days after Facebook’s direct competitor to Snapchat, Slingshot, was leaked into the app store momentarily before it was quickly taken down, TechCrunch notes. The app will supposedly allow users to write on photos and video messages before sending. But one major difference between the two is Facebook will require a reply from a user, meaning someone will have to send a message before they can view a message. This could be an issue if people on the social-media platform have yet to add the feature. But this forced response could also help Facebook boost its user base quickly.Facebook updated the Messenger app in April with the ability to send pre-recorded videos and a split screen mode that lets user take photos and send messages in the same view.Related: Facebook Lets Users Determine the Ads They Want to See 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Clinton looks for better USPakistani cooperation

The final bill may have been significantly greater.Clinton, who joined the Pakistani minister and Afghan Foreign Minister Zalmai Rassoul for a three-way meeting later Sunday, said her discussions with Khar covered stalled Afghan reconciliation efforts. The U.S. is counting on Pakistan to help convince the Taliban and other groups fighting the Afghan government to halt violence and enter into a political dialogue.They spoke as well about enhancing U.S.-Pakistani economic ties to make it a relationship defined more by trade than aid.A joint statement by the U.S., Pakistan and Afghanistan “reaffirmed the importance of pursuing multiple channels and contacts” with militants seeking to overthrow the Afghan government.It said reconciliation would be discussed during Pakistani Prime Minister Raja Pervez Ashraf’s upcoming visit to Kabul and Afghan mediator Salahuddin Rabbani’s visit to Islamabad.“These visits should determine and implement additional concrete steps to advance Afghan reconciliation,” the statement said.

Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family 5 ways to recognize low testosterone Associated PressTOKYO (AP) – U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed hope Sunday that Pakistan’s recent reopening of NATO supply lines into Afghanistan might lead to a broader rapprochement in U.S.-Pakistani relations after a difficult period for the reluctant allies.After attending a 70-nation Afghan aid conference in Tokyo, Clinton met privately with Pakistani Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar to discuss reviving the U.S.-Pakistani relationship, which has suffered a series of debilitating crises over the last year-and-a-half but is still seen as critical for the stability of South Asia. It was their first meeting since Clinton’s apology last week for the November killing of 24 Pakistani soldiers by NATO, a move that led to the end of Pakistan’s seven-month blockade of the supply routes.“We are both encouraged that we’ve been able to put the recent difficulties behind us so we can focus on the many challenges ahead of us,” Clinton told reporters. “We want to use the positive momentum generated by our recent agreement to take tangible steps on our many shared, core interests.”The most important of these, Clinton said, was fighting militant groups. They have used Pakistan as a rear base to attack American troops and jeopardize the future of Afghanistan.She and Khar “focused on the necessity of defeating the terror networks that threat the stability of both Pakistan and Afghanistan, as well as the interests of the United States,” Clinton said.Last week’s accord helped repair ties that have been torn over everything from a CIA contractor who killed two Pakistanis to the unilateral U.S. raid on Osama bin Laden’s Pakistan compound. The November incident was the deadliest among the allies in the decade-long fight against al-Qaida and other extremist groups along the Afghan-Pakistani frontier.

Kauri Cliffs voted 1 Resort in Australia New Zealand

first_imgKauri CliffsKauri Cliffs voted “#1 Resort in Australia & New Zealand”The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is the number one hotel in Australia & New Zealand, as voted by Travel + Leisure readers in the publication’s World’s Best Awards 2017. The prestigious accolade was announced overnight by the US-based magazine, which is considered one of the world’s leading travel publications.With this most recent award coming more than 15 years after Kauri Cliffs first opened, it stands as a testament to the enduring style and timeless elegance of this much-loved New Zealand lodge. Since opening to international acclaim in 2001, Kauri Cliffs has set a benchmark for a relaxed and laid-back style of authentic luxury that is both quintessentially New Zealand, yet sophisticated and world-class in the overall experience.Starting with a dream location and idyllic property just north of the Bay of Islands, the Robertson family delivered on their vision to create a destination lodge that delivers enriching experiences that showcase the stunning region it inhabits.Guests at Kauri Cliffs can discover the remarkable Northland coast by helicopter with chartered and group flights travelling over the Bay of Islands, north to Cape Reinga or across to Tane Mahuta, Lord of the Forest. This unique opportunity to see some of New Zealand’s most beautiful coastal and island scenery draws discerning travellers from around the world.Add to the offering the ability to hook a snapper from one of the lodges three private beaches, to enjoy a gourmet private barbeques on the lodge’s stunning pink beach, to play the world-ranked golf course and to savour Relais & Chateaux food and wine offerings, and Kauri Cliffs is a complete package.“To be named the number one resort, particularly in a country like New Zealand where the ‘luxury lodge’ phenomenon was born and the accommodation bar is set high, says a lot about the experience at Kauri Cliffs,” said Euan Taylor, Chief Operating Officer. “We offer a very personal, warm and tailored style of hospitality where guests really do come first, and it is a heartfelt honour to the entire team to be recognised as Number One across Australia and New Zealand.”Kauri Cliffs is the flagship and first in what is now a trio of leading New Zealand lodges owned by New York-based financier and philanthropist Julian H. Robertson and family. After the success of Kauri Cliffs, the Robertsons built sister lodge, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers, which opened in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand in 2007. They later purchased an existing South Island lodge on the banks of Lake Wakitipu in Queenstown, and after an extensive rebuild and renovation Matakauri Lodge was opened to acclaim in 2010.Robertson and his late wife Josie have a long love affair with New Zealand, first moving here for a sabbatical year in the late 1970’s. Some sixteen years later, when Robertson was offered for purchase the 5000-acre sheep and cattle property that is now Kauri Cliffs, he and the family didn’t hesitate.Building The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs took long-term vision and was a true labour of love for the Robertson family. In planning, designing and building the main lodge, accommodation suites and the golf course, every detail was carried through with a perfectionist’s eye. Josie Robertson worked in close collaboration with designer Virginia Fisher on all aspects of the exterior and interior design. Legendary golf course designer David Harman travelled to the property a reputed 46 times from his business base in Orlando, Florida to ensure that the Kauri Cliffs’ course was absolute world class.The result speaks for itself. Travel + Leisure’s 2017 World’s Best Award – Number One Resort in New Zealand and Australia; The Lodge at Kauri Cliffs is timeless, classic and much loved by guests from New Zealand and around the world.In somewhat of a trifecta, Kauri Cliffs’ sister properties, The Farm at Cape Kidnappers and Matakauri Lodge were also named in the Top 5 Resorts in Australia & New Zealand, at #2 (Cape Kidnappers), and #5 Matakauri Lodge. The trio are the only New Zealand properties in the top five. Source = Travel + Leisurelast_img read more
