Melissa Bolona Andrew MacPhersonGlow from the inside out! After spending many years in front of the camera and dealing with an array of digestive issues, Acts of Violence and Hurricane Heist actress Melissa Boloña was on the hunt for a product that could help improve her gut health — and what she discovered was so much more.“Growing up, I always had digestive and stomach issues, and as I got older I got into a big wellness rut,” she tells Us Weekly exclusively. Instead of sulking, the model researched various products and ultimately was introduced to bone broth and its benefits while on a trip to New York with her sister.- Advertisement – Other than her stomach woes improving, Boloña began seeing benefits in her hair, skin, nails and even energy levels upon creating her own recipe. “It is very high in naturally occurring collagen, which helps bring strength and shine to hair and helps give you a more youthful, glowing complexion and some even call it a facial from the inside out,” she says.“I used to get Botox on a scheduled basis. When It would wear off, it was like a timer went off. After drinking bone broth at least once a day on a continuous basis, the timer completely disappeared, and I’ve personally seen smoother, plumper skin and thicker, shinier hair.”Melissa Bolona’s Beauty and the Broth Bone Broth Jonas GaidaAnother plus: “It is an amazing post workout recovery drink, and some replace coffee with it since it gives you a lot of natural energy and alertness,” Boloña shares.- Advertisement – “Bone broth made my stomach issues practically non-existent. … I also used to get very hungry throughout the day and more so before lunch, and it helped curb my unhealthy cravings,” she adds.Melissa Bolona’s Beauty and the Broth Bone Broth Andrew MacPhersonWhile bone broth helped, Boloña had trouble finding an option that was tasty and fit with her on-the-go lifestyle, so she took matters into her own hands.“All the broths were either too bland or too gamey. … I started cooking broth recipes in my own kitchen and six months later, Beauty and the Broth was born,” she says while celebrating the launch of her company that offers USDA approved, organic grass-fed, ranch-raised beef, vegetarian-fed, free-range chicken bone broth concentrates made from scratch and slowly simmered together with organic vegetables and herbs.- Advertisement – To incorporate bone broth into your own wellness routine, the actress recommends bringing a pouch of Beauty and the Broth and the brand’s sip cup wherever you go, emptying out the concentrate and customizing the amount of desired water depending on how strong or weak you want it, heating it up in the microwave and enjoying.As for her overall routine, Boloña relies on a mix of Pilates, barre, spin and HIIT classes and more, but her motto is “less is more, but consistency is key.”“Everything you do for and put into your body should be in moderation, but it should be the very best and consistently done when it comes to the food you eat, working out and taking care of your mind and soul,” she explains. “Really listen to your body, don’t push yourself, and give it what it needs to work the best that it can from the inside out.”Beauty and the Broth offers weekly, biweekly and monthly direct to door subscription programs.

May 28, 2004 (CIDRAP News) – A flock of 24,000 chickens at a farm in northeastern Texas was destroyed yesterday because of evidence of a new outbreak of avian influenza, according to the Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC).The chickens were euthanized and buried after routine blood tests indicated the presence of an H7N3 avian flu virus, the TAHC said in a news release. Dr. Bob Hillman, TAHC executive director, said there was little evidence of increased illness or death in the flock, indicating that the virus may have low pathogenicity.”The National Veterinary Services Laboratory in Ames, Iowa, has reported the evidence of H7N3 AI [avian influenza] virus in the flock, but it may be a week or 10 days before virus isolation results are available,” Hillman stated.The last avian flu outbreak in Texas involved a highly pathogenic H5N2 virus at a farm east of San Antonio in February. About 6,600 birds were sacrificed to contain the disease, and no other cases were found in the vicinity, the TAHC said.The widespread outbreaks of avian flu in Asia this year have involved a highly pathogenic H5N1 virus. The virus jumped to humans, causing 34 documented cases and at least 23 deaths, and triggered fears of a human flu pandemic. But the virus apparently never spread directly from person to person.Hillman noted that Canadian officials are continuing an effort to eradicate an outbreak of highly pathogenic H7N3 avian flu in southern British Columbia. He called that outbreak unrelated to the Texas one.Pilgrim’s Pride Corp., owner of the flock that was sacrificed yesterday, said the birds were breeder chickens, which lay eggs for hatching. A company statement said the farm, operated by a contract grower, is 6 miles from the nearest commercial poultry farm.Pilgrim’s Pride President O.B. Goolsby said poultry flocks in Texas are tested for avian flu every 10 weeks. “As a result of this diligence, we believe that the virus can be contained, particularly since this flock is so far from any other poultry farms,” he said. He added that the company had stepped up its surveillance for avian flu after the outbreaks earlier this year in Texas and the northeastern United States.The source of the virus in the new outbreak, near Sulphur Springs in Hopkins County, was unknown, but migratory waterfowl are a natural reservoir of avian flu viruses, Hillman said.Although the virus may be low-pathogenic, it was necessary to act quickly to stamp out the new outbreak, Hillman said. He noted that avian flu does not make cooked poultry or eggs unsafe.See also:May 28 Pilgrim’s Pride news release
Oct 28, 2005 (CIDRAP News) – The World Health Organization (WHO) warned today that if H5N1 avian influenza spread to Africa and caused human cases, it “could push fragile health systems to the brink of collapse.”Also, China today ruled out H5N1 avian flu in the death of a girl who lived in a village recently hit by a poultry outbreak, while Romania reported finding the virus for the first time in an area other than the Danube delta.The virus has spread to Turkey, Romania, Croatia, and European Russia in recent weeks, and concern is rising that birds flying south from Siberia will bring the virus to Africa.The WHO said the arrival of the virus in Africa “would be of great concern for human as well as animal health.” Human and poultry populations are less dense in Africa than in Asia, but many African households have backyard flocks, which often mingle with wild birds.The agency said the risk of human cases in Africa would be similar to the risk in Asia. With weak disease-surveillance systems, cases and case clusters probably would not be detected quickly, especially when the symptoms resemble those of many other common diseases. Other diseases, including AIDS, malaria, and tuberculosis, already have overwhelmed healthcare and financial resources.”Sporadic cases of H5N1 infection and the frequent reluctance of residents to comply with recommended reporting and isolation measures during outbreaks of severe disease could push fragile health systems close to the brink of collapse,” the WHO said.In China, officials said a 12-year-old girl from Hunan province who died Oct 17 of suspected avian flu actually had pneumonia. The girl lived in Wantang, a village where 545 chickens and ducks died last week, the Associated Press (AP) reported.The girl’s 9-year-old brother is hospitalized in stable condition with pneumonia, according to a Reuters report today. China has had no confirmed human cases of H5N1 avian flu to date.Reuters reported that WHO officials in Geneva were calling for more information from China on the cases. WHO spokeswoman Maria Cheng said China had not provided any information. “We need more clarification because both [children] apparently had been exposed to sick chickens,” she was quoted as saying.Another WHO official said the agency wanted to know what tests were used to rule out avian flu, according to the AP.In Romania, officials said a dead heron found in the northeast, near the Moldovan border, tested positive for H5N1, according to an Agence France-Presse report today. The agriculture minister, Gheorghe Flutur, said tests conduced in Weybridge, England, confirmed the virus.Last week Flutur announced the virus had been found in two locations in the Danube River delta in southeastern Romania. Flutur said that more than 400 other tests on birds from eastern Romania had turned out negative, AFP reported.In other news, three tourists from Reunion Island who were suspected of catching avian flu while traveling in Thailand have tested negative for the virus, according to a Reuters report today.The story said a Thai health official, quoting unnamed French officials, said “final lab results” had excluded avian flu in the three French tourists. Reunion Island is a French possession off the east coast of Africa.The French health ministry had said yesterday that one of the three tourists, a 43-year-old man, had tested negative. The three had visited a bird park in Thailand.
A few day ago, Indonesia’s vice president, Jusuf Kalla, announced that the government planned to extend the ban on backyard poultry to residential areas throughout the country. In earlier news reports, officials blamed local animal-health officials and farmers for not maintaining poultry vaccination programs and farmers for hatching poultry illegally. Meanwhile in Thailand, 11 people from 9 provinces are being monitored for avian flu, Bloomberg News reported today. All have flulike symptoms and had recent contact with dead poultry, Suphan Srithamma, a spokesperson for the public health ministry, told Bloomberg today. He said none of the patients have tested positive for the H5N1 virus, but they will be monitored for 10 days. “Farmers still don’t take vaccination seriously enough,” Hoang Van Nam, deputy head of Vietnam’s animal health department, told Bloomberg. “It will be extremely hard for local veterinary officials to undertake proper fowl vaccination without the support of those raising the poultry.” Health Minister Siti Fadilah Supari told residents culling is urgently needed, the AP reported. “People infected by bird flu have only a small chance of survival. With no medicine to fight the virus and the pattern of the disease still unclear, we have to cut the chain of transmission, which means killing fowl,” she said. Thawatchai told Thai News Agency today that four members of a duck-farming family in the province were suspected of having avian flu after they consumed 2 birds that had died. Authorities slaughtered 600 ducks at the farm and instituted a 2-week quarantine to prevent the spread of the disease. Herlien Krisnaningsih, of the Bogor Agribusiness Agency, said her department had not received any instructions from the central government on how to carry out the culls. “We are not ready yet to carry out the central government’s call because it will be extremely costly, and we believe it will discourage officers in the field who are struggling to prevent the virus from spreading,” she told the Post. Jan 19, 2007 (CIDRAP News) The H5N1 avian influenza situation in Asia remained active today as Indonesia began clearing Jakarta of backyard fowl to curb the spread of the disease, Vietnam fought a poultry outbreak in an eighth province, and Thailand tested several people for suspected infections. Residents have until Jan 31 to surrender the banned fowl, including chickens, ducks, swans, quail, and pigeons, Agence France-Presse (AFP) reported today. The government promised to pay $1.40 for each bird surrendered for culling. Officials were also concerned that 30 pigs on the farm may have contracted the virus, TNA reported. Starting Feb 1, government officials will go door-to-door confiscating banned birds, the governor of Jakarta told the AP recently. Recent confirmed H5N1 outbreaks in Thailand came after a 6-month lull, the health ministry said. The country’s last WHO-confirmed human case was reported in September 2006. Thailand has had 25 cases and 17 deaths, most of them in 2004. Thawatchai Kamoltham, chief public health officer of northern Thailand’s Phitsanulok province, said 26 people were being monitored because they became ill after contact with dead birds, according to a report today from Xinhua, China’s state news agency. Fifteen of them were officials who took part in recent culling activities. Three were admitted to hospitals, and the rest were being monitored at home. In Vietnam, the health ministry announced that avian flu killed some ducks in Can Tho province, bringing to 8 the number of provinces in the Mekong Delta affected by recent poultry outbreaks, Bloomberg News reported today. The virus killed 30 ducklings, and the remaining 40 ducks in the flock were culled to stop the disease, the ministry said. Officials of Bogor, a town that neighbors Jakarta, branded the culling plan unrealistic and too expensive, and said it was based on an emotional reaction to the spate of recent human cases, the Jakarta Post reported 2 days ago. Government authorities in Indonesia banned backyard poultry in the country’s capital after five human cases were reported so far this month, all in Jakarta or its suburbs. In several instances, poultry deaths were reported in the patients’ neighborhoods. The country has been battling dozens of outbreaks in the Mekong Delta since early December. Though no human H5N1 illnesses have been reported since November 2005, Vietnam leads the world in the number of cases, with 93. Indonesia has resisted widespread culling in the past, despite the high number of human illnesses: 79 cases and 61 deaths have been confirmed by the World Health Organization (WHO). Backyard farmers are often reluctant to hand over their sick or at-risk birds. The Associated Press (AP) reported today that the country has about 350 million backyard chickens, many of which are in Jakarta and surrounding areas.
After Zagreb and Zadar, the Museum of Illusion expanded through the franchise model to Ljubljana, and at the beginning of this week to Vienna.An excellent tourist story as well as quality additional entertainment and tourist content Museum of Illusion, is proof of how the business model of private museums can work, in fact, works great, even outside our borders through the franchise model. I constantly emphasize that the motive for the arrival of tourists is not accommodation, but quality, diverse and authentic content of the tourist destination.The Museum of Illusions, which has been in Zadar since last year, has proven to be an excellent tourist and entertainment attraction, and has certainly further expanded the rich tourist offer of Zadar and its surroundings. Last year in Zadar, the museum attracted about 50.000 visitors, which are excellent results, especially when we know that most visits happen during the three summer months. “Zadar is a tourist city that has more and more arrivals and overnight stays every year, so it was logical to open the Museum of Illusions in Zadar as well. The product works best in the summer months, although the museum is open all year round. Thus, the growing crowds start from April until mid-October. During the year we have various events and happenings as well as creative workshops. Everything is great, tourists are satisfied, only it is still a semi-annual product. “Points out Roko Živković from the Museum of Illusion and adds that the most important thing is that visitors leave the museum happy and smiling, and this is evidenced by the average rating on TripAdvisor, which is 4.90.It is interesting how the Museum of Illusions in Ljubljana as well as the newly opened ones in Vienna function through a franchise, and as Živković points out, there are concrete interests from other European countries as well. “We saw that there was room for expansion, and we chose the franchise model as the most acceptable to us. Through the franchise in cooperation with the partner, we offer him help through all phases, from the first contact, the book of standards, employee education, all the way to the opening and later through the entire development process. It’s been a process for a year. ”Points out Živković and adds that all four museums proved to be a hit on the market as well as the most attractive museums in their cities. But for the whole thing to be self-sustaining and successful it takes a lot of effort.As Živković points out, the business model works, but it is very tricky. “For a product to succeed, it has to be a very good story and product, good distribution, a product for a wide target group – a combination of five or six things needs to be put together, otherwise the whole story is not profitable. Also, the Museum has additional income through souvenirs and didactic toys for which we are also distributors. ”Says Živković and finally points out that further expansion is planned both in Croatia and outside the borders of Lijepa naša. The Museum of Illusion is a unique product in the world and as such provides joy and entertainment to people, and accordingly it is an excellent quality and different tourist content in each destination.It is important to point out that the Museum of Illusion is a private investment and that with their quality work they have shown how all museums should operate, especially state-owned museums that have much more resources. This is where the difference between private and state museums, which have a secure way of financing, have no imperative of earnings or how many visitors visit them, is best seen, while private museums are companies struggling in the market to survive and certainly care about every visitor and every kuna. . Yes, and in this equation it should certainly be mentioned that private “museums” have a VAT of 25% like everyone else, while State museums do not.Also, unfortunately most importantly, museums under the auspices of the State (honor exceptions) do not work on the promotion and popularization of culture and their exhibits, and often do not even work on weekends, which is absurd because they have to work on weekends for tourists and domestic visitors.Croatia – a country with “a thousand” museumsThe Illusion Museum is an excellent tourist story that has enriched the Croatian tourist offer and we sincerely hope that their success will be an incentive to open more and more specialized museums in Croatia, there is a place on the market for everyone.Our biggest tourist advantage is our incredible diversity and authenticity. And the motive of the trip is to get to know new ways and cultures of living. I wonder, why don’t we have hundreds of private museums for all our amazing tourist, historical, cultural, authentic… stories?We have to tell our authentic stories and be proud of them, museums give added value, offer quality content and tell thousands of stories about our history, culture, heritage, innovation, identity.Tourist staff and hosts – You are the ambassadors of Croatian tourismI definitely recommend you to experience the Museum of Illusions, and to your guests, both hosts in family accommodation and hoteliers, recommend the Museum of Illusions as a great tourist attraction because the motive of arrival is not hotels or apartments, but quality content and experience of the destination. Guests will be grateful and will return to their tourist destination next year to return to your accommodation.And finally, here is an “illusion”. Everything is great and everything is for five. Again we have a record tourist season, growth in the number of nights and arrivals, everything works great, everything is great… only unfortunately we never have less tourist spending.

This year, the airport traffic in Croatia has already exceeded the passenger traffic of 53 million, which is the best indicator that our activities so far related to the positioning of Croatia as an air destination have given excellent results. For the next year, we have provided HRK 10 million to strengthen transport connections, which will enable the growth of tourist traffic from European and distant markets during all months of the year. In the coming period, we will place greater focus on strengthening our visibility on the world market using various channels, and with new legislative changes, opportunities will open up for even better promotion of Croatian tourism in the world. ” On the agenda of the 45th session of the Tourist Board of the CNTB, proposals for a decision on announcing a public tender for the selection of a PR agency and a media agency in emitting markets were presented.
