first_imgSometimes one Trackable (or two or three or a dozen Trackables) from Geocaching.com simply isn’t enough. Shop Geocaching offers bulk orders of tracking codes. The options are endless. You might mint your own series of Geocoins, print a large order of Trackable t-shirts for your geocaching group, or wow your friends with Trackable cows. The minimum order is 50 tracking codes. Think of it, you can track a whole herd (of cows or friends).Geocachers often use bulk orders of tracking codes to prepare for geocaching events. The codes can be used to make almost anything Trackable, from attendees’ nametags to the geocaching cake at the event.If you’re interested in less than 50 Trackables at a time, there’s a solution. Purchase a Travel Bug® or two. Activate the Travel Bug and then include the tracking code wherever you like – you can tattoo it on your arm or carve it into your favorite walking stick. It is important that you do not place the tracking code in more than one location, as it will cause confusion as to which item is being tracked.Once your codes are activated, sit back and watch your items, from cows to cakes, get ‘discovered’ on Geocaching.com. Find out more about the Geocaching.com tracking code policy and view the contact information for ordering your own codes here.Share with your Friends:More SharePrint RelatedBecome Trackable on Geocaching.com – Tattoos to Travel BugsSeptember 13, 2011In “Community”Trackable Tattoos – Never LostSeptember 23, 2012In “Community”Shop Geocaching April 2012 NewsletterApril 2, 2012In “GeoTours”last_img read more

Odisha asks banks to improve cash availability in cyclone affected areas

first_imgOdisha government has asked banks to improve cash availability to enable people in cyclone-affected districts to buy essential items.“Mobile ATMs have been sent to Puri by the State Cooperative Bank and SBI. Now seven mobile ATMs are functioning in Puri,” said Chief Secretary A. P. Padhi, after chairing a Special State Level Bankers Committee meeting here on Friday. “SBI will send 10 more ATMs. Cash availability is not a problem in the State.” Digital payment and cash withdrawal from ATMs were affected as power had not been restored in many areas ever since cyclone Fani hit Odisha on May 3. People were seen standing in long queues in front of the rare functional ATM counters in Bhubaneswar. Unavailability of cash had forced students to go back to their villages. Wage payment to daily labourers was affected.The Odisha government’s decision to hand out ₹2000 in cash as part of the Chief Minister’s package has proved to be of great help.The special State Level Banker’s Committee discussed the measures banks and insurance companies must take in cyclone affected areas. The SLBC resolved that existing loans would be rescheduled and fresh loans would be extended.“The loans may be rescheduled keeping in view the lower cash flow to SHGs and Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. Bankers would provide all assistance to bail out the tourism industry in Puri. Insurance companies would also relax the document requirements, simplify the process and expedite payment of claims,” it was resolved in the SLBC. The Chief Secretary urged the banks to operationalise all their branches in Puri by Monday. Banking has been largely unaffected in all affected districts except Puri.last_img read more
