Reported attempts to forcibly return displaced deeply concerns UN in Sudan

The Mission said that the process by which demolitions, relocations and plot allocations are being carried out constitute human rights violations, including forced return.Every attempt must be made to stop demolitions and relocations until suitable alternative arrangements are made, the Mission said, stressing that in all instances, forced relocation must end in the interests of protecting rights and livelihoods and preventing the loss of life.Meanwhile on the political front, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Marie Guéhenno and Jan Pronk, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Sudan, were in the Nuba Mountains today, where they were scheduled to meet with the Commander of the Joint Military Commission (JMC). read more

Loblaws gets approval for Shoppers purchase but must sell some stores

by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 21, 2014 8:12 am MDT Loblaws gets approval for Shoppers purchase, but must sell some stores AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Loblaw Companies Ltd. has received approval from the Competition Bureau for its $12.4-billion purchase of Shoppers Drug Mart, with a few stipulations.The federal agency is requiring Loblaw to sell a total of 18 stores and nine Loblaw-run pharmacies to an independent operator.Most of the stores listed for sale are in smaller communities and include 14 Shoppers locations and four under Loblaw banners.Other “behavioural restrictions” will be placed on Loblaw over agreements with suppliers for up to five years, the Competition Bureau said.The decision follows a review which began after the deal was announced last July.The regulator examined hundreds of regions across the country where both Loblaw (TSX:L) and Shoppers operated stores, and concentrated on a number of local markets where competition was the greatest.One area of focus was on overlapping products and services offered by both companies, which included prescription fees.The review also identified agreements between Loblaw and suppliers that raised competition concerns, including one which required suppliers to compensate Loblaw for a predetermined profit margin, it said.“The Bureau determined that without restrictions on certain Loblaw programs and agreements, the proposed transaction would likely lead to higher wholesale prices paid by other retailers to suppliers and, in some circumstances, higher retail prices for consumers,” the report said.One of the agreements that Loblaw reached with the agency prohibits the retailer from signing agreements that use sales volume at Shoppers as extra weight for its existing profit margin agreements. It also prevents the company from entering into new agreements of this type for its Shoppers stores.Loblaw agreed to exclude sales from Shoppers from a program where it seeks compensation from suppliers when a competitor advertises a sale price in its flyers that’s lower than a Loblaw flyer in the same time period.The Competition Bureau says it will continue to investigate certain pricing programs and agreements Loblaw has made.Loblaw, which has Canada’s largest network of grocery stores operating under several banners, says it will “co-operate with the Competition Bureau in its continued review of these practices.”“Loblaw is committed to supplier practices that meet the Bureau’s objectives of maintaining competitive markets,” the company said in its announcement Friday.All of the agreements between the regulator and Loblaw will expire five years after the transaction’s closing date on March 28.“This agreement addresses the most significant negative competitive effects of the merger by ensuring that consumers continue to benefit from competitive prices in the retail sale of drugstore and pharmacy products in Canada,” said John Pecman, the commissioner of competition in a statement.Some suppliers have complained that the country’s largest grocery chains use unfair practices, and have called on an industry code of conduct.Price negotiations with suppliers has become a priority for national retailers. The entry of Target and a more aggressive rollout of Walmart supercentres in recent years spurred a consolidation of big Canadian stores last year.Sobey’s (TSX:EMP.A) bought the Canadian assets of U.S. grocer Safeway for $5.8 billion, a deal that expanded its reach in Western Canada. The Competition Bureau required the company sell 23 stores to win approval. read more

Gemencrusted Magic Mushroom USB stick costs 37000

first_imgIf you happen to be getting a rather large tax return this year, or if you simply are comfortable enough to have about forty-thousand dollars just laying around, then the Shawish “Magic Mushroom” USB key pictured above may be for you.The creators of the world’s first 150-carat diamond ring have decided that they want to bring the sexy back to your computing lifestyle by offering this gem-encrusted mushroom shaped memory stick. For such a high price you’d expect them to at least give you a lot of on-board storage, but alas it only holds 32GB of data.Of course, if $37,000 is a bit too rich for your tastes, or you are pinching pennies because of the current state of the economy, you can get a cheaper model that sports pink sapphires and white diamonds for the bargain basement price of $16,500. I would like to point out that my truck cost less than the little trinket pictured above.Created to bring people back to their memories of childhood, the mushroom drive is modeled after the same fungus that was found in the classic novel Alice in Wonderland. The Shawish company reasoned that by bringing modern convenience to a classic piece of literary history they would make it a desirable item for the world’s fashion elite.I don’t know about you, but I doubt that Alice herself would be comfortable flashing this kind of bling around people like the Red Queen. After all, she could lose her head very easily, and the people that actually purchase this device have already lost theirs!Read more at Yahoo! News and Shawish Jewellerylast_img read more

Instagram Cracks Down on Harmful Wild Animal Selfies

first_img Whether you’re bragging about your life on Facebook or fishing for hookups on Tinder, there are few things more powerful on social media than a selfie with a cute animal. However, some folks aren’t satisfied with taking a picture of themselves with their dog or cat. They want to up their selfie game with lions and tigers and bears.The problem is that humans are forcing interactions with wild animals, like cute baby cubs, is often harmful to the animals themselves (or the human depending on the animal). And rewarding wild animal selfies just encourages more of this dangerous Grizzly Man behavior. That’s why, in cooperation with numerous wildlife protection agencies, Instagram is now cracking down on wild animal selfies.Instagram shared the plan with National Geographic, which knows a thing or two about safely documenting humans and nature. Hundreds of people tag photos with hashtags like #DolphinSelfie or #SlothSelfie or even #ExoticAnimalForSale. But now, when Instagram detects a vulnerable animal in a selfie tag, it will alert users that these situations are harmful and educates them about wildlife protection. It’s similar to how Instagram already monitors for threats like potential suicides.“We care about our community, including the animals and the wildlife that are an important part of the platform,” says Instagram spokeswoman Emily Cain in a statement to National Geographic. This wildlife exploitation typically occurs in regions like the Amazon or Thailand, where sketchy local tourism industries ignore laws to make some cash by selling exotic animal photo ops. Hopefully, if Instagram helps would-be gullible tourists know how bad these practices are they won’t support them during their next vacation. However, animals taking their own selfies is still totally cool. Just get those pesky people out of the shot.Social media is a powerful force, so we need to wield it responsibly. We can’t abuse the real world to make ourselves cooler in the virtual world. So next time you want to take a selfie with a cute animal on Instagram, instead of flying halfway around the world just go adopt a cat or dog ya dingus!

Video Call Bumble Matches Without Exchanging Numbers

first_img AI-Powered ‘Private Detector’ Protects Bumble Users From Dick PicsWoman Unknowingly Bragged About Poaching Deer to Game Warden on Dating App Stay on target It’s hard to turn an online chat into an IRL date. So Bumble introduced a happy medium: video.Based on user feedback, the social network released new video chat and video call features across its dating, career, and friendship platforms.“We hope this’ll help you confidently connect with matches—and feel safe before deciding whether to take your match offline,” a company blog post said.On Date, Bumble’s matchmaking service where women make the first move, a digital face-to-face can help ease catfishing anxiety, and take a potential relationship to the next level.Plus, since there is no exchange of phone numbers, if things sour quickly, users don’t have to worry that their personal information is being used for revenge.The same is true across other Bumble modes, where sometimes emojis just ain’t enough.After all, nothing says “I have an undying love for all things The Bold Type” quite like seeing the grin on someone’s face as they gush about Jane’s latest article, Sutton’s sartorial elegance, or Kat’s empowering ideas.Calling also lets you skip the back-and-forth texts to set up your first friend date on Bumble BFF.“Now you won’t get stuck trying to decide which ramen place to go to, or which workout class works best for both of your schedules,” the blog said.And when you can’t get away from your desk for a coffee break with a potential mentor or mentee, just count a Bumble Bizz video chat as a professional meetup.You must be matched with someone to start a call; look for the video and phone icons in the top right corner of your conversation screen.True to Bumble’s style, women get the option to call as soon as they match (this can count as their first move); men must wait until a first move has been made.More on Geek.com:AI-Powered ‘Private Detector’ Protects Bumble Users From Dick PicsCows Now Have Their Own Tinder-Style Dating AppMatch App’s Dating Coaches Are Here to Ease Your Nerveslast_img read more

Once is not enough Aussies returning to travel destinations

first_imgWhile the desire to explore new horizons and visit a different destination every holiday motivates many travellers, some people prefer to return somewhere they’ve been before.In fact, the latest findings from Roy Morgan Research reveal that more than one in five Australian holiday-makers chose their last destination based on having visited before.In the 12 months to September 2015, nearly 13 million Australians 14+ took at least one holiday. For their last trip, 2.8 million people (or 21.2% of travellers) opted to go somewhere they’d already been in the past.In Australia, the holiday destination with the highest proportion of visitors who said they chose it because they’d been there before was the North West Coast in Tasmania. Of all people who visited this region on their last holiday, 42% had chosen it based on their previous experience.Top destinations chosen by Australian holiday-makers because they’d been there beforeSource: Roy Morgan Single Source (Australia), October 2014 – September 2015 (n=10,398). Base: Australians 14+ who went on a trip in last 12 monthsOther destinations likely to be chosen on the basis of the traveller having been there before are the Victorian High Country (37.8% of whose visitors had been there before), Southport (36.9%), Eyre Peninsula/Port Lincoln/Ceduna (34.8%) and Noosa (33.5%).Angela Smith, Group Account Director, Roy Morgan Research, says: “There’s something to be said for multiple holidays in the same place: they allow the traveller to get to know the destination (and possibly some of the locals) and feel less like a tourist.“Our latest data shows that more than one in five Australian travellers opted to take the familiar route rather than the path less travelled on their last trip, returning to a previously visited destination.“As the chart above indicates, most of the popular repeat destinations are coastal, a timely reminder (given that the holiday season is approaching) that Aussies love a beach getaway.“With a detailed understanding of the kind of person who holidays in the same destination more than once, tourism operators, car hire businesses and holiday rental companies will be better placed to build relationships with these  travellers, benefitting both parties in the long term… ” Roy Morgan ResearchSource = Roy Morgan Researchlast_img read more

Go back to the enewsletter Peter J Bates Strategi

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterPeter J Bates, Strategic VisionSocial media activity by cruise lines, tourism boards and tour operators has been identified as crucial in influencing the minds of the Australian luxury travellers. According to Goldman Group‘s recently released Australian Luxury Traveller 2019, nearly two-thirds (63%) of Australia’s affluent travelling public indicated they use one of the major social media networks: Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.Peter Bates, President of Strategic Vision – the company commissioned by Goldman Group to conduct the research – said social media has made a “huge impact” on the luxe segment, and for tourism organisations “social programs are vital to help create new leads looking for new business and solidifying business you may already have, and to convert new sales”.Facebook was hands down the most favoured social media channel, with 59% of the sample audience surveyed saying they use the platform, followed by Instagram (29%), LinkedIn (4%) and Twitter (3%).“Facebook for this market is very, very important,” the New York-based Bates said.“Asked where they get holiday ideas and inspiration, 13% cited social media as a source. Thirty-five per cent said they enjoyed posting about their holiday on social media,” he added.Peter Bates of Strategic Vision, flanked by Goldman Group’s Joint Managing Directors, David Goldman and Anthony Goldman.“Despite the rise in social media, Australian luxury travellers still lean heavily on traditional sources when it comes to planning their next holiday. Inspiration comes from word of mouth/friends and family (55%), followed by magazines (38%), newspapers (31%) and travel advisors at 28%,” Bates said.Travel content websites such as Lonely Planet was 26% and TV shows were 25%.Nearly 60% of those polled specified using a travel advisor, and 28% cited travel advisors as a source for ideas for their next trip.“We are finding this more and more. Travel advisors are on the road the whole time. They are not sitting in offices. Many of them are travelling a lot. And many times they are writing to their clients saying “I am in so and so” and “I’m checking out so and so”.Bates said an increasing number of consumers are asking their travel advisors: Have you seen it? Have you been there? Have you tried it?“They want that reassurance when booking that the travel advisor actually knows where they are sending their clients. So it is very important that they are mobile today and technology makes that very easy for them to do.”He said that “transformational travel” is a term that is continuing to pop up with luxury travellers, for those who want immersive insights and memorable experiences that they can return home and talk about.“There’s bragging rights at the dinner party at home, and of course on social media, so they can boast about where have been.”Thanks to the emergence of Gen Z as key decision-makers in the travel booking process, there is a boom in bookings for travelling to Instagrammable destinations to document travel experiences, all for sharing on social media. Coined the “iGeneration”, Gen Z is seeking unusual destinations and active experiences, with their decisions influenced by social media, online reviews, friend recommendations and shares.Anthony Goldman, Joint Managing Director of Goldman Group said, “We are increasingly receiving booking requests from Instagram (@travelcall_agency) and we sell on the social platform. We receive direct messages from customers saying, ‘I want that’. Hotels are also creating more and more Instagrammable experiences, enabling the capture of special moments to be shared with followers. Instagram as a platform has really influenced the way younger generations research and undertake travel.”A copy of Goldman Group’s Australian Luxury Traveller report can be accessed here.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

first_imgThe mayor and tourism board of Ayia Napa on Tuesday welcomed news that Thomas Cook will axe its once popular Club 18-30 holidays, describing as a positive move that the holidays for young clubbers may soon be a thing of the past.“We remain committed to Club 18-30 for summer 2018. However, we are exploring options for the future of the brand, which could include the possibility of a sale,” a Thomas Cook spokesperson said on Tuesday.“The sun goes down, the stars come out and the party begins. The nights belong to you. Sip cocktails at dusk, dance on the beach at midnight or party till the sun comes up. World-class line-ups, live music sessions and legendary night events – it’s all there for the taking,” is how Thomas Cook advertises Club 18 to 30 on its website, adding: “Our reps are just like you – fun, adventurous, crazy & carefree.”But this is not what most young travellers want any more, research carried out in September 2017 by Eventbrite on the changing interests of millennials shows.According to the report, healthy lifestyles are up and alcohol drinking is down, “if only for one reason: they want to enjoy – and remember – the moment more.” They also want an individually tailored experience, going for what is different.This is reflected in the changes at Thomas Cook, which now focuses on family holidays and the diversity people are increasingly looking for.“We focus on good music, great drinks and fantastic food in an atmosphere where you’ll be able to mingle with like-minded people and create your dream holiday,” they say about their new Cook’s Club brand which was launched last month. Instead of legendary events the company now attempts to lure travellers with “an everchanging menu with healthy vegan delights and hearty, wholesome treats” and “mellow music” instead of non-stop parties.That times are changing is what the Ayia Napa mayor and regional tourism board have been saying for a long time.“We see from the number of visitors that the concept has changed,” head of the tourism board Lakis Avraamides said. “The last five to six years the number of clubbing tourists has gone down.”He said the tourism board will be pleased to be rid of the young clubbers, and he expects that certain establishments such as clubs will also close, “not because we order them to, but because of the situation.”Ayia Napa Mayor Yiannis Karousos has long voiced that it is time to end the “low quality youth” market and attempt to promote Ayia Napa as a quality destination, not least by building a huge marina in the resort.Asked about the new developments at Thomas Cook, he called them “very positive”.“This kind of tourism brings only problems,” he said, adding that it is destroying the rest of the travel company’s product.The young clubbers currently account for about 8,000 to 10,000 of the roughly 700,000 annual visitors to the resort.“But that doesn’t mean the hotel rooms will be empty. They will be filled with quality tourists. The youngsters pay about GB£150 for a week with seven parties and unlimited drinks. We would rather have one tourist spending £500,” Karousos said.Club 18-30 was founded in the 1960s to offer package holidays targeted at young singles and couples to travel without families or children, attracting people with slogans such as “Best mates. All in one place. No ties. No responsibilities. No work for a couple of weeks.” What was meant as a carefree holiday has often escalated into an orgy of drinking and sex.You May LikeCrossover | Search AdsThese Crossovers Are The Cream Of The Crop.
