Taiwan opened for the first time since last Wednesday with a thud -5%. Japan sank over 1% while the rest of the region was off less than 1%. Reports that Lunar New Year hours would be extended for several cities in order to contain the virus weighed heavily on sentiment as the virus has killed 170 with 7,700 infected.

While attribute based shopping has been discussed for over 10 years, the level of noise about

While attribute based shopping has been discussed for over 10 years, the level of noise about its application for the hotel industry has significantly increased in the last 18 months. After significant investment in new systems and technology, companies like IHG are tipping their toes in the ABS waters. While some tout the great benefits (and revenues) expected by offering customers more choice, others take a more cautious approach, questioning the expected benefits and ROI. What is your take on ABS, will it do what it did for the Airline industry – boost ancillary revenues, or will it be the “3D TV” of Hotel Technology. While ABS is something which comes naturally in the airlines model, where customers already expect to pay for certain variables, in the hospitality it cannot be taken for granted. Just because it worked for airlines, it doesn’t mean it will for the hospitality industry. see more Let’s look at the case of the Malaysian hotel group, Tune Hotels (founded by the low-cost airline AirAsia co-founder, Tony Fernandes), a no-frill budget hotel chain. Here guests, starting from a very low rate, could add on accessories (blankets, towels…...

For the last couple of years I have been spending more quality time with my friend

For the last couple of years I have been spending more quality time with my friend listening to his life’s recollections.  On a cold, rainy spring day in 2016 we started talking of his early years, the hard work, and staying home to take care of his parents while his siblings left to pursue other endeavors. Many of the Polish Ruthenian immigrants came to Wisconsin via Pennsylvania. They had friends and relatives that continued to live there. Frank specifically mentioned Donora, Monessen, Big Washington, and Little Washington – all in Pennsylvania.  Frank mentioned an uncle and others who worked in the factories and foundries there.  One time, while visiting, his uncle gave him a new, red plaid hunting jacket. His uncle worked in a barbwire factory where they did an acid wash and galvanizing. The acid wash would eat away at the material in the clothes they wore. The fumes from the plant and acid wash residue were all over the neighborhood. Their eyes would burn, their noses would run, and people would be afflicted with coughs. The uncle, fearing the working environment would ruin the expensive jacket, gave it to Frank to take back to the farm in Lublin. I think he just wanted Fra...

Texas promised to fix special education, but students still report being denied

Years after Texas Education officials pledged to undo a decade worth of damage caused by a cap on special education services, the state remains in violation of federal disability laws. And parents are still complaining that they’ve had to beg or threaten to sue in order to get their children evaluated for extra help in the classroom. The Houston Chronicle revealed more than three years ago that the state had systematically denied tens of thousands of students special education services, triggering a federal investigation and a series of promised changes by the Texas Education Agency. In Texas, unelected state officials have devised a system that has kept thousands of disabled kids out of special education. Read other installments in the 2016 series here. Although the state has made some progress, it has yet to deliver critical resources promised to parents and guidance overdue to districts, an investigation by the Chronicle and Houston Public Media shows. “We have ruined a generation of kids,” said Sonja Kerr, an attorney who works on behalf of students with disabilities, “and we are about to ruin another generation with the inaction from TEA and the complete complacency.” The ...

The cult-favorite skin care brand, known for its clean ingredients, has partnered with a true hair legend for a new collection hitting stores on April 4, and it’s bound to sell out fast. Celebrity hairstylist Chris McMillan, aka Jennifer Aniston’s mane man, teamed up with Drunk Elephant founder Tiffany Masterson to create the collection, which includes four hair care products: a shampoo, conditioner, scalp scrub and a leave-in detangling mist. Masterson and McMillian have actually been friends for years, so it makes sense they would work together. “Chris, who’s five years older than me, began cutting my hair when I was 12 years old,” Masterson told InStyle. “He’s been one of my best friends and my hairstylist for as long as I can remember.” McMillan, an industry veteran with 30 years of experience, formerly served as the spokesman for hair care brand Living Proof and was eager to dabble in the product design process. “Chri...

Govt ropes in beverage companies to install bottle-crusher machines

Kolkata: In a significant stride to prevent the reuse of plastic bottles that is a lucrative business in the country, the West Bengal Pollution Control Board (WBPCB) has roped in several soft drink companies under the latter’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) scheme and is installing bottle crusher machines at prominent places in the city. The PCB is acting as the coordinator and proposals from different state government offices, urban local bodies, Kolkata Police, airports, railway stations are being brought under the ambit of these companies so that they can install such facilities as per the requirement. “We are encouraging the installation of the machines at places where there is a huge gathering of people. Once the plastic bottle is dropped into the bottle crushing machine, it will be entirely crushed and will be released as fine pieces of plastic,” said a senior official of WBPCB. “People have a tendency to scatter plastic bottles after use without crushing them. There have been complaints of reusing these plastic bottles by loading it with water or other drinks. Bottles once crushed in these machines can never be reused,” the official s...
