In Milan, Starbucks managed to build something that is as different from everything else on the market here as it is from the selling points that work for them in other markets (ie, offering a third-space and being just being familiar).
3. Customized services. Hotels have long known that guests will come back when you can offer them a more personal touch. Nowadays, that includes using social media and digital tools to capture and serve guest's unique interests, like Marriott's new GoBoard digital concierge. Affinia Hotels offer a "MyAffinia" web portal for selecting just the right amenities to be in your room on arrival, from an Ibanez guitar, to walking guides for the city, to your choice of 6 specialty pillows (magnetic therapy pillow, anyone?). The website for American Express's Zync Card allows customers to select from a variety of "packs" of card benefits, from the "GO" pack for travelers to the "ECO" pack for green consumers or the "RESTAURANT" pack for foodies.
(CBS Local)- The SEC is gearing up for the start of its 2020 season in just a few weeks and with that, CBS Sports has announced its broadcast schedule for the year. The schedule kicks off on Saturday, September 26 when the defending champion LSU Tigers host the Mississippi State Bulldogs in Baton Rouge, LA.
The Posies was a Seattle band that might have been just too darn good to go far. The 19-song disc starts out with tunes from the band's Beatle-esque debut, "Dear 23," and then takes a sharp turn with songs from its praised 1994 album, "Frosting on the Beater," ("Dream All Day," "Solar Sister"). Look for some B-side tracks as well as songs from the less-acclaimed "Amazing Disgrace" (1996), including the painfully sweet "Sad To Be Aware."
When you board the ship, you'll be given a schedule that has more activity options than summer camp. If you're a foodie or wine connoisseur, flocking to a class led by a pastry chef or a sommelier might be high on your list. Be sure to mix those classes up with some more active ones, like dance lessons and yoga classes, which are also staples on cruise ships! "Most cruises have access to awesome fitness classes," says Rothenburg. Take one of those on your 'at sea day' early in the morning before the sun is strong or in the late afternoon when you need a shady break.
I've been vegan about, I think it's like three or four years now. So when I first went vegan, I remember saying it's a lot better and feeling like it. I've been vegan for so long, though, that I can't really remember how much of a difference it would make. I'm an advocate for being full-blown vegan. That's my ideal way that I would love people to live, but the key to it is eating as little processed foods and a more whole foods-type diet as possible. I think that's where you'll see the benefits, and just get there gradually. But definitely, at the time when I first went vegan, I remember feeling a lot better. Now it's been so long that it's just become my normal.
It's more legitimate questions now. When I first went vegan, back when I was on the independents, there was a lot of people confused by it, whereas now I feel like people are a lot more educated, probably because movies like The Game Changers. Also, it's just way more available, every restaurant you see now will have a plant-based option. So people definitely are just way more interested in it now.
If I could just share one last tip with it: I think another key to it is remember the reason that you're going plant-based is for those more nutrient-dense meals. It's good that they exist in a way, the Beyond (Burger) and Impossible type meats and stuff, but that's not really what you should be aiming for. You want as nutrient-dense foods, as many micro-nutrients as possible, to aid with recovery and to stop inflammation, et cetera. Don't get caught into the marketing behind certain different meat-replacement products.
Alternatively, start transitioning your primary relationship activity to something else that you do share tastes on. Find a film that will act as a springboard into that other activity. (For example, watch a movie with strong food focus, transition to watching a foodie documentary, and then find restaurants/food festivals to visit in the area. Or, find a sequence of sports films that will transition into you two joining the local league, etc.)
There are dozens of different new bands that sound like any specific older band or genre of every decade past. That you want someone to spend radio spectrum just on your own nostalgia is jaw droppingly selfish.
Yes please. And then do our best to eliminate one group of people subsidizing the other. This discussion is about the city subsidizing the country. It seems to me to be a very poor argument that this is justified by finding other places where the country subsidizes the city. I think a much better idea is to try to eliminate any such subsidies instead of pretending we can offset them against each other.
Ok, this both just ironic, but also, to my mind, instructive. Uber and Lyft have provided very large subsidies to their riders. That this was the example that came to you strikes me as interesting, as one of things I think people actually tend to dismiss around here is that many problems tend to be hard to solve. Chesterton put that fence up for a reason, darn it.
You will pass that question, just for that answer, because that shows more understanding then more than half the technical candidates I have ever interviewed. If I was interviewing you, I would then dig in deeper, and ask you for what was the difference on HPUX, the difference on Linux, and how the differences are different from each other. You will probably very quickly demonstrating deeper knowledge than your interviewer, and that is completely fine.
"All of the athletes here are just fortunate and excited to be here. Obviously as an athlete and competitor, you live for competition. And for the last 7-8 months all of these athletes didn't have that opportunity. So, when everyone got here, they were just thankful to start racing again," said Krayzelburg in an interview with CBS Local's Ryan Mayer. "You could really tell. The first matches, the first races, people were swimming some really great times because they needed to get that energy out. And obviously people have settled in but for the most part have performed pretty consistently over the last couple months."
"We have done enough evaluation where we can compare ourselves against the other three teams that we're swimming. Over the next few days, we're going to start working on our different lineup scenarios we're going to entertain depending on how the match goes. But we feel very confident," said Krayzelburg. "We're obviously our last match was very good and we played with some events putting different athletes in different events. We feel very confident that we're just starting to reach our potential." 2b1af7f3a8
