St. Maarten SCYE2004 Photo Album Antigua Charter Yacht Meeting Photo Album 2004 The mood was definitely upbeat on Thursday, October 28, as the 45th Annual Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show commenced with the largest opening day crowd in its history.

We're happy to report that the weather was sunny and beautiful, the brokers were optimistic, the crews were as gracious as ever, and the yachts were crowded with prospective clients for both sale and charter.

Now that's a Da Vinci!

Poor Leonardo. After losing out to Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni during his lifetime, he still doesn't get the credit or recognition his work deserves. Finally, someone trusted their intuition, and bought a sketch which looked to him like a Leonardo, and, lo - it was! His $19000 investment is now worth $150 million: Now that's what I call reverse innovation! If you'll excuse me, I'm off to the basement to see if I have any Da Vinci's lying around in my art collection... ... (more)

Amartya Sen: The Idea of Justice

His latest book, The Idea of Justice, is a serious re-examination of the foundations of justice from a global perspective. He speaks of the two definitions of justice in Sanskrit - niti (institutional justice) and nyaya (realized justice) - and how we are too often misled by the utopian vision of ideal justice, only to allow societal injustice all around us in our everyday lives. For Sen, justice must alleviate suffering. Here's his lecture to the folks at The Carnegie Council (video here): AMARTYA SEN: It is always an absolute delight for me to be back here at the Carnegie Council. I am very grateful to Joanne for being so kind and so welcoming. It's very nice to meet some old friends, familiar faces, and some new ones--Joel [Rosenthal] and other old friends, but a lot of new ones too. I am very grateful. I am not going to go into the distinctions in the Indian epis... (more)

Clout vs. Klout: Why They Aren’t the Same Thing, And Never Will Be

There’s been a lot of noise lately about a company called Klout, which recently rounded up another $30 million in venture capital funding from several big firms. Klout, for those who don’t know it, attempts to put a single numerical value on your online influence across social-media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn. This effort seems to piss off a lot of people, who detail numerous shortcomings in a service that aspires to be the metric of choice for companies trying to reach social-media “influencers,” in much the manner that Google’s PageRank system helps people understand the reach and reputation of websites. The Klout complaints are many, even as the company rapidly signs thousands of corporate partners who use its evaluations to dish out “Klout Perks,” such as free entry to parties and events, early peeks at hot products and more. The issues inclu... (more)

Best Caribbean Yacht Charter Discounts for Summer/Autumn

When you add sailing to the mix you’ll need to pay special attention to the weather patterns, but the Caribbean’s friendly temperatures generally mean you can sail all year long. The Bath, BVI If you’re looking for a great charter at an excellent price, look no further. Plan for a Summer or Autumn charter! LateSail can send you to the British Virgin Islands and elsewhere in the Caribbean at discounts of up to 40%.

This allows you to really relax and settle into a breezy, prolonged cruise. You won’t have to scramble to fit in all the sights, and will have more days to live on ‘island time’, cruising from one place to the next at a... (more)
