US President Donald Trump is trying to control tourism in Cuba - and failing, critics say

- The American traveller in Cuba - sweating, disoriented and probably a bit woozy from the rum drinks - is once more at the heart of the struggle for the island's future. Central to US President Donald Trump's plans to peel back his predecessor's detente with Cuba is the idea that there is "good" and "bad" US travel. The United States, Trump believes, can tightly regulate American vacations to deprive the Castro government of dollars and redirect the money to the island's growing class of entrepreneurs

Delta plans to continue Havana flights under Trump’s new Cuba policy

- Delta Air Lines, which launched scheduled flights to Cuba last December, said it will continue to fly from Atlanta, New York and Miami to Havana, and will comply with changes in regulations announced by the Trump Administration. The Trump Administration announced Friday its plans to discontinue individual people-to-people travel to Cuba, while continuing to allow group people-to-people travel. But the new policy wouldn’t take effect immediately: It directs the Treasury Secretary to change the regulations, so the changes would take effect after the process of creating the new regulations

How North Carolinians can still travel to Cuba

- President Donald Trump announced stricter policies for Americans traveling to Cuba on Friday, but that doesn’t necessarily mean North Carolinians won’t be able to travel to the country. For nearly two decades, North Carolina residents have traveled to Cuba on “people-to-people” trips through tour groups licensed by the U.S. Treasury. That will still be allowed even with Trump’s stricter policies. Trump is ending “individual people-to-people travel,” something former President Barack Obama negotiated in 2016

Gli aussie, in vantaggio con una valida di Wade, hanno cercato la rimonta, firmando anche un fuoricampo con il battitore designato Trent Oeltjen, ex Fortitudo Bologna, ma il monte cubano ha resistito grazie ad una difesa perfetta alla salvezza di Lahera Punti, Australia 000
