The badges a dive centre can get '5* IDC' etc are based on the number of divers they qualify, and paying for that accreditation, oh and complying with the relevant standards associated with being '5* IDC'. Being 5* IDC (etc) itself shows they have through-put, rather than being an outright sign of quality.sundaymorningstaple wrote:With 50 years of being wet both on Scuba and commercially, I hope they are hung out to dry, or at the very least, stripped of the 5* PADI rating. (Although I don't think too much of PADI anyway as they have ALWAYS been too commercial for my way of thinking). That's not to say there aren't some darn good divers out there carrying PADI certs though.

Not true at all. There are many pockets of native Americans throughout the United States. There is a constant push, that may be picking up steam, to expose the genocide that occurred in the USA when the white man arrived. The Trail of Tears is the most well known, and the fact is native Americans were slaughtered when they got in the way.JR8 wrote:The Cree are long extinct, or as near as matters...
