mix it up!

Sitting in awe as bottles are flying and fire is swirling, Mikey Wilkins is definitely a captivating man to watch. This young 26 year old, hailing from Yeovil - a small town in England, is bringing his talented bar-tending skills to DAR.

If someone walks in and sits at the bar with their arms folded, looking down in the dumps and they can leave with a smile on their face, that is what makes it all worth it.

I’ve taken this opportunity to pull him out of his comfort zone and have someone serve him a drink instead! This vibrant and energetic man is no different when sitting on the other side of the bar. Full of life and with a heart of gold…there was more to him than I first anticipated. Starting out at the age of 13 cleaning plates in a local pub, an opportunity arose when a waiter didn’t show up for work. He was put in a giant white shirt and straight onto the floor. This helped with what are now his exceptional people skills. Nothing is more rewarding than brightening up someone’s day, and that is exactly what he’s good at. “The most important question you can ask as a bartender is ‘why?’.” If someone walks in and sits at the bar with their arms folded, looking down in the dumps and they can leave with a smile on their face, that is what makes it all worth it. As Bar Manager in Bar Rouge, Shanghai, China, Mikey made his mark working alongside top mixologists and chefs. By introducing a cost control working platform and through different control procedures it enabled the bar to work out where it was losing money unnecessarily, he was able to save the bar over half a million dollars a year. Working in an environment where English is hard to come by, you learn to overcome the language barrier quite quickly. As Bar Rouge is an international bar, bartenders were decent with the English language, so while I wouldn’t put his Mandarin to the test, his cheeky English accent is sure to put a smile on your face. Mikey says it’s tough but you learn to adapt to the challenge as western management techniques don’t work over there. Shanghai is fast paced, with competition everywhere. Everyone is trying to prove something.

Conserving our living


Tanzania is home to an outstanding array of marine habitats which serve as important feeding grounds for several threatened marine species including sea turtles, dugongs, whale sharks, together with several species of whale and dolphin.

Conservation and protection of endangered sea turtles is Sea Sense’s ‘flagship’ project.

Coral reefs and seagrass beds are also central to the lives


of coastal fishing communities, providing a source of income and food security for millions of people. However, due to a growing human population in the coastal zone, some marine species are facing an uncertain future. Sea turtles and dugongs are under increasing pressure from incidental bycatch in fishing nets and deliberate slaughter for their meat while illegal and destructive fishing practices are causing the degradation of important breeding and foraging habitats. Alarming declines in populations of sea turtles and dugongs led to the establishment of Sea Sense in 2001, an organisation entirely dedicated to the conservation and protection of coastal and marine resources in Tanzania. Over the past twelve years, Sea Sense has targeted the conservation of species such as sea turtles, dugongs and whale sharks to achieve broader marine conservation goals, since these species are widely regarded as indicators of the health of our oceans. Sea Sense uses a ‘grassroots’ approach, engaging coastal communities in a range of marine conservation initiatives and providing education and training programmes in marine resource management. Each of the programmes is specifically designed to deliver conservation benefits for threatened marine species and socio-economic benefits for coastal communities, in order to emphasize the fundamental link between humans and their environment.

GIRLSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; NIGHT OUT! URU DIAMONDS GOING GLOBAL: Launching new collection

on New York fashion week in September

Inspired by ancient African traditions and designs, URU Diamonds offers an exclusive range of meticulously hand crafted jewelry. Throughout African history gemstones were believed to bring the wearer wisdom, prosperity and strength. Tanzanian artisans combine gold and silver with the same rough gemstones on bracelets, hand woven from threads in an endless array of colours and designs ensuring that each URU piece is a unique creation. Every URU piece is unique. The URU stones are exclusively sourced from Tanzanian small scale miners throughout the country. In appreciation of the natural beauty inherent in the rough stones, the gems are used as they are found, ensuring that no two pieces are the same. The precious metal used in each URU design is hand carved, cast and polished by an URU artisan using age old methods. Our unique threaded bracelet strap is hand woven by an URU craftsman in a time consuming process that takes up to six hours. More than 50 meters of thread in as many as six colours is used to create each piece. GAMBLING FOR PERSONS OVER 18 YEARS ONLY. SEA CLIFF CASINO SUPPORTS RESPONSIBLE GAMBLING.

Today, Jimmy Choo can be seen on style icons from celebrities to royalty, musicians to heads of state. The brand’s reputation as a celebrity favourite helped to fuel its rapid expansion. Its iconography was more defined by the bold and theatrical advertising portraying glamorous but strong women in towering heels and luxurious handbag. Retail development has been integral to the company’s strategy. The first Jimmy Choo store was opened in 1996 on Motcomb Street in London. A few years later, the company expanded to the US, opening two stores in New York City and Beverly Hills. International expansion continued with Jimmy Choo securing locations in the premiere luxury shopping destinations of the world’s most prestigious cities including Sloane Street and Bond Street in London, Avenue Montaigne in Paris andVia Condotti in Rome to name a few.
