What Is Unlimited Agents?
“COLORS OF AN OLD BELLING PLACE”: HIDDEN LORE is an exciting new sports book by Steve Berry. It tells the story of the legendary Belling Horse Stadium, which was destroyed in an Israeli air raid sixty years ago. ” COLORS OF AN OLD BELLING PLACE” brings back the thrill of being there – and being able to gulp down some history and take home memorabilia, including a copy of the original lease agreement, which describes the conditions of the place, such as the amount of rent, deposits required, among other things. In this regard, the hotel was built next to the stadium, and is now home to many people who enjoy taking part in the sport that was taken up by the Belling Horse, the first professional equestrian event in the city.
The colorful history of the Belling Horse can be told through the colorful costumes and the two years’ long association with the venue, as well as through interviews with people involved, such as the late Frank Sinatra, John Lennon and Yusef Islam. Sinatra paid for part of the hotel, which became known as “The Belling Horse,” and also leased space to the Belling Horse in turn. Muhammad Ali, who had a home in the hotel, often stayed in the converted Belling Horse, which he trained in before his famous matches with Joe Frazier and George Foreman. In fact, he trained there for much of his professional career.
In addition to these famous celebrities, the hotel also housed World War II evacuees, who were housed in what was then called the Amman Ranches. Two years later, Yusef Islam moved in with the Belling Horse as one of the original owners. He stayed for the next two years, along with six other members of the Amman Family. All but one of those people were born in Egypt, which means that they were technically” Egyptians” according to the United States government’s definition at the time. (The owner of the Belling Horse is still listed as an employee of the United States State Department).
Two other occupants of Belling Horse accommodation in Egypt were the co-founders of the now-defunct Safari Park Safari, which was one of the biggest tours and travel packages at the time. Richard F. DeMille, Jr. and Robert T. Henry were the founders of the Park Safari, and Richard F. DeMille, Sr. worked as the chief operating officer for the company. The pair decided to set up their own company after leaving Safari Park, and it was while they were constructing the first American branch in Cairo that the idea for the UFA came to light. The name of the company was “Ultimate”, a tribute to the band and the members of the Amman family.
It is also important to note that the UFA has its origins in the very early days of the Internet, and not long after websites offering free travel to many different countries hit the web, the idea took off. Today, nearly everyone from Canada, to the United Kingdom, to Germany, to Australia, to India, to China, to South Korea, and even Taiwan is offering UFA as a way to get or make their free travel. While the use of UFA is rampant throughout the travel industry, the reason it resonates so much is because the use of the word “unlimited” itself implies that it is free, whereas the use of the word “bound” suggests a certain limitation on the part of the agency or travel site. This subtle but important distinction is what has led to so many misunderstandings when it comes to UFA and the opportunities that come with it.
The issue of whether or not “unlimited free agents” and “bound” are two different terms has become a bit muddied over the years, despite the best efforts of the FTC. The most commonly known limitation associated with a “bound” or “exclusive” contract with an online travel site is that you are required to remain a member beyond the first year of your agreement. A “finite” or “permanent” membership is a term often used, implying that you are obligated to remain with the agency for the entire two years. In some cases, the term “permanent” is interpreted to mean the life of the account – in other words, if you sign up for a two-year plan, you can be expected to remain with that account for the full two years. The confusion surrounding this matter is what has led the FTC to adopt a more restrictive definition of the term “unlimited agents” in its complaint filings with the courts.
