Escort Dating for Couples

Posted By on February 28, 2014

Escorts aren’t just for singletons! Couples can also benefit from the escort services, especially if they’re looking for a little spice and adventure from a London escort.

Threesome

Three’s a crowd certainly does not apply here. We’ve all fantasized about threesomes at some point in our lives. The thought of having an additional lover adds variety and a spice to the experience. But as a couple, picking someone you both know to join your escapades can become awkward in the long run, especially when insecurity begins to set in. By booking through high class London escort agency all this is avoided  and some even offer a couples special.

Let Your Female Partner Choose

The key to scoring a threesome with your significant other is to let her choose the escort in London. It’s a little trick that lets her feel like she’s in control, which would make her a more willing participant since she’s the one who made the selection. It’s quite likely she’ll choose someone you’d both like, so extra points there.img41

Express Your Fantasies

Once the London escort is chosen, you may want to explain your fantasies, especially if it’s boarding along the lines the sado-masochist type of sex where toys, props and even costumes may be included. Truth is, she may even have ‘treasure chest’ filled with these. This is part of your bargaining tools, as she’ll know exactly what you guys want, and can give you her price then and there.

So after your steamy session, do you want to relax while she gives you or your partner a sensual massage? All of this should be stated beforehand to avoid common misunderstandings. Although some elite London escorts from  are very liberal, some may be particular.

Respect Your London Escort

Don’t do anything she’s not comfortable with. Some pornstar escorts are simply hired to perform your sexual fantasy, while others partake in everything. So if one of her rules is no anal sex, don’t attempt it (even with a dildo).

Pay Attention to Your Significant Other

It’s easy to get caught up in the moment, especially if you’re doing it with someone you’ve never done it with before. This is a common mistake most men make. But don’t fall to the trap of the ‘shiny new toy,’ that is, pay too much attention to your London independent escorts , and neglect your significant other (particularly if she’s over sensitive and has some insecurity). Women are interesting creatures, so even though you’re super excited about your hire in the black leather suit, don’t make the experience all about her and let your companion have a little fun too.

A wild night with an independent escort in London may be just what a couple needs to add some spice to their sex life. It’s also a safe way of exploring your sexual fantasies, as both of you are involved and before today you and the escort were strangers, sparing you the awkwardness of a messy split if you’d ventured with someone you both know. After you’re escapades, if hiring a third party is for you, go right ahead and enjoy.

Usa Understudies Fail To Make Case

USA ends successful qualifying run

In Mexico City, it ground out a point at the Azteca. Then there were wins in Kingston against Jamaica and Seattle over Panama and Salt Lake City over Honduras . A fetid loss followed in San Jose, Costa Rica. Heartfelt was the win over Mexico in Columbus and easy the victory over Jamaica in Kansas City. And on Tuesday, at length, the weary USA concluded its meandering World Cup qualifying travels with a bizarre 3-2 win injury-time in Panama City that saved its archrivals. When Panamas Luis Tejada snuck in front of Kyle Beckerman in the 83rd minute to poke home the low Roberto Chen cross that US goalkeeper Brad Guzan had pushed into his path, it seemed for all the world like Panama would win 2-1. Combined with Mexicos 2-1 loss down in Costa Rica , that would mean that Mexico would fail to qualify for the World Cup and Panama would be into the playoffs with New Zealand. Panama had never been to a World Cup; Mexico hadnt failed to qualify (without being excluded) since 1982. Yet an injury-time Graham Zusi header and a subsequent Aron Johannsson rip overturned that result, freeing Mexico of ignominy, leaving the home team inconsolable and its crowd stunned. It was, perhaps, the most fitting of endings to this strange and twisted World Cup qualifying campaign for the USA. Since February, there were reports of faith suspended and restored in head coach Jurgen Klinsmann as the Americans careened from crisis to recovery, to dominance, to a slip-up, to competence, and finally, to Tuesdays, well, weirdness. Video: What’s your favorite stadium for USA World Cup qualifiers? But for their part, in the end, securing a spot in their seventh consecutive World Cup was fairly straightforward for the Americans, in spite of the inherent trickiness of qualifying from the grueling hexagonal round in CONCACAF. The win over the Canaleros improved the USAs record in the double round-robin, six-team final stage to seven wins, a tie and two losses, easily clinching their third straight hexagonal title — if there were such a thing. The Yanks won six of their last seven games and earned their place at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with two games to spare.

But they had little use for that freedom. The defense wasnt entirely coherent and failed to feed the midfield much. The lines were set up too far apart and lacked cohesion or connection with one another. Sloppy on the ball, the attack lacked punch. The Americans mostly looked insipid and uninspired, leaving no real positive imprint on anybodys memory. A game that was slow and static and stale, that was the impression that will linger in the mind. From the looks of it, the intensity Klinsmann had hoped to retain has long since faded. The urgency simply wasnt there. As it turns out, there is no replicating the pressure to qualify for the World Cup artificially, once its been secured. HEAR US OUT!

Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame Throws Some Serious Shade At Kim Kardashian

Hollywood acupuncturist accused of practicing medicine without a license

I could lie in the bed, but not sleeping,” Kogan said. “This was so toxic. I was feeling like poisoned.” She called poison control and saw several doctor specialists, including a neurologist, she said. But they could do little to help, because they did not know what substance had been injected into her face, Kogan said. “This was something unbelievable,” she said. Police said an investigation began after a Food and Drug Administration special agent contacted a Hollywood detective in July. Kogan said Ware was recommended to her. According to a police report, she paid $180 for an anti-aging treatment to reduce wrinkles on her face. The substance was injected throughout her face, including under her eyes, the report said. Initially, Kogan said she was hesitant about the procedure because she asked for reading material about the treatment that Ware could not provide. He told her not to be afraid because he was using “good ingredients,” Kogan said. About the same time Kogan was treated, Sandra Urquiza, of Miami, also was a patient of Ware’s after he advertised a $150 deal on the popular daily deal website Groupon , officials said. She told authorities that she had a natural breast lift procedure intramuscular injections into her breasts during two separate occasions performed by Ware also in February 2012. The report did not indicate whether she had any medical issues because of the injections.

Hollywood’s Walk Of Fame Throws Some Serious Shade At Kim Kardashian Kanye West, in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that you might have missed last week, talked about how it was ludicrous that his baby mama Kim Kardashian did not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. How did the Walk of Fame team respond? With a big resounding “Fuck thaaaat.” As a Walk of Fame spokeswoman Ana Martinez explained to the NY Daily News, Theyre not giving a performance, its just them going through their daily lives and rituals on TV. We honor people whove acted in or directed or produced an award-winning show or film. And its the same with music, people who maybe have gold records. Not even shade so much as a brutally true insult. Though perhaps Martinez is unaware that Keeping Up With The Kardashians actually did take home a statue: they won Favorite TV Guilty Pleasure at the 2011 People’s Choice Awards. And no one can doubt how hard Kardashian worked to stage those supposedly overseas scenes. Kardashian and the star-studded sidewalk have more in common than you may think: they’re both cultural institutions that no one really cares about and both have been urinated upon by random men, but Martinez is rightthe Walk of Fame is a Hollywood institution with impeccably high standards.

Then again, utilizing the last competitive game before the World Cup to test the understudies and those on the bubble for the Brazil roster against an eager opponent — Panama had to win to stand a chance of qualifying, while needed Mexico to lose — had its merits, too. And if conspiracy theorists might have offered up the possibility that Klinsmann hoped to knock Mexico out of World Cup contention by handing Panama the win on a platter, that notion was quashed by the late rally. Certainly, then, Klinsmann was vindicated in his odd roster trickery. But whether very many of the second-stringers made their case for a seat on the charter jet to Brazil any stronger is debatable. The makeshift American defense looked disjointed from the outset. Thats how, in the 18th minute, Panamas Colorado Rapids forward Gabriel Torres could run through the line undisturbed, take Marcos Sanchezs feed and sweep his shot past the helpless Guzan to make it 1-0. And had it not been for several faulty offside calls, a few more Panamanians would have found themselves one-on-one with the American goalkeeper after sharp passes over the top. With a tad more efficiency on its other chances, Panama could have put the USA further behind than the 1-0 score line they went into the halftime break with. Video: Schaerlaeckens: Strong MLS good for USMNT? On the other side of the ball, the Americans could muster only brief spells of fluidity and possession. And save for an early Graham Zusi effort that sailed high, they forged no chances of note in the first half. They really lacked all cohesion and precision on the ball. The game opened up in the second half, and in the 64th minute Michael Orozco managed to bull in the equalizer off a corner. As Panama chased after the go-ahead goal it needed for survival, the game opened up somewhat and the US got a chance to put together some decent attacks. But save for Altidores hold-up and connecting play and some of substitute Brad Daviss crosses — one of which fed Zusi his equalizer — the performances going forward were forgettable.

USA Confirm Two Teams For Coral Coast Sevens

BayleysFijiCoralCoastSevenslogo_Compressed

The Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens will be the testing ground for future USA Olympic hopefuls, according to national mens coach Matt Hawkins. In a major boost for the tournament, both the shadow mens and womens USA teams have been confirmed for Lawaqa Park on14-16 November. Having experienced last years tournament as a player (for Serevi Selects) I had no hesitation in recommending the Coral Coast as part of our development program, said Hawkins. It is a great opportunity to trial players from the college and Olympic Development Academy systems as there is no better place to learn the game than in Fiji. The three tiers of our program are the USA Eagles, Falcons and All-Americans, so the team to the Coral Coast will feature a few college players, and with rugby sevens really starting to gain some traction in the USA ahead of Rio 2016 we hope to make this an annual visit. The team, to be known as the Shangri-La USA Falcons, will be one of the 24 mens teams in the tournament. Defending champion Red Rock, Pakuranga (winner of New Zealands Middlesex Sevens) and Laulii Pago (American Samoa) are others confirmed for the Pacific Rims champion of champions. The USA All-Americans had won the Serevi Rugbytown Sevens in August, while the winner of next weekends Fitness First Central Coast Sevens in NSW is to be added. Vaiala from Samoa has withdrawn. We are very grateful to the Shangri-La Fijian Resort and Spa for hosting us and equally excited that our womens team will also be playing in Fiji, Hawkins continued. The USA Stars and Stripes in their first visit to Sigatoka take on 11 other teams for the Crest Na Iri Trophy. Our girls are really looking forward to heading to Fiji next month and we expect it to be a real learning experience which will be a benefit for us ahead of the womens world series opener in Dubai, said coach Ric Suggitt. USA Rugby has 16 womens players in its residency program at the Olympic Training Center in Chula Vista, near San Diego, and the bulk of the team to Fiji are expected to be from this group. The full USA Eagles womens team finished third in the RWC Sevens in June and is a core team on the IRB Womens Sevens World Series which features six tournaments in 2013-14. Five sides from Fiji, four from Australia and the national squad from New Caledonia will provide tough competition for the USA Stars and Stripes. One team is still to be finalised. Tickets for the Bayleys Fiji Coral Coast Sevens, which is sponsored by Goodman Fielder Fiji, Total Fiji Ltd, Fiji Airways, Outrigger on the Lagoon Fiji, Warwick Fiji Resort & Spa, The Naviti Resort, Fiji Hideaway Resort & Spa, Coastal Rental Cars, Fiji Broadcasting Corporation, The Fiji Times, Communications Fiji Limited, Shangri-Las Fijian Resort & Spa, Nivea Men, Tappoo Group of Companies, Fiji Chemicals Diversey, Serevi Rugby and Sigatoka River Safari, are now on sale.

Time: ‘new Cowboys’ In The United States Of Texas

Posted By on October 18, 2013

United States debt: the ugly reality

Cowen writes: The U.S. is experiencing ever greater economic inequality and the thinning of its middle class; Texas is already one of our most unequal states. Americas safety net is fraying under the weight of ballooning Social Security and Medicare costs; Texas safety net was built frayed. Americans are seeking a cheaper cost of living and a less regulated climate in which to do business; Texas has those in spades. And did we mention theres no state income tax? Cheap living is luring people to Texas along with jobs, he writes, saying Texas added 12 percent of all jobs nationwide with 274,700. The Americans heading to Texas and other cheap-living states are a bit like the mythical cowboys of our pastself-reliant, for better or worse, he writes. He acknowledges major downsides: Many Americans will have to downsize their living quarters involuntarily. People in the shrinking middle class who want to have more than one child may find the costs too high. There is no longer the expectation, much less the guarantee, that living standards double or even increase much with each generation. But its not all bad newsespecially if we take the right steps to prepare. The flood of Americans moving to Texas shows us where we need to focus our attention; what these migrants have found in Texas shows us ways many of our cities and states can improve. He says the public education system must be more rigorous, and other states also can incorporate some of the lessons Texas has to teach. He says states could deregulate building in order to lower costs (San Francisco needs to become more like Houston when it comes to zoning) and cut down on occupational licensing.

Egypt: Relations with United States in ‘turmoil’

I can see MPs like Honourable Amos Chibaya or Nyasha Chikwinya or Joseph Chinotimba being off-loaded a like bags of potatoes on the back of a huge green truck a to a howling Chikurubi. I suspect Comrade Chinotimba and his unique beard would make quite a sight dangling from one of the prison cages that has been half the home of Last Maingehama and Morgan Komichi for the last several months. I can see pork-faced MPs and their ill-dressed spouses lined up in Court A at the Harare High Court answering treason charges for defying the authority of the land. In earlier days, they would have just disappeared and their remains found at a farm in Goromonzi, arms cut to small sleeve and a wire running through them, inserted via the knowledge acquired from the Intarahamwe torture school. But back to the puzzling issue of the American budget crises. What is at play here is that in all most all countries, including Zimbabwe, Parliament has the sole say over the Consolidated Revenue Fund or the fiscus. Put in simple terms, the people a through their elected representatives, the Members of Parliament a decide what to do with their own money, the taxes that they pay to the State. So far so good. However, most countries of Westminster influence play lip service to the supremacy of Parliament in controlling the national pursue. In the case of Zimbabwe, the new Constitution in article 305 gives control of the Consolidated Fund to Parliament. But that control is not absolute. In Article 305 (5) it allows the Minister of Finance to present a supplementary Budget before parliament for approval.

The suspension, announced last week, came in response to the unrest in the wake of the July 3 military coup that ousted Mohammed Morsi, Egypt’s first freely elected president, and that led to the deaths of hundreds in police crackdowns. In an interview with state-owned Al-Ahram newspaper, Egypt’s Foreign Minister Nabil Fahmy said that there is “unrest in relations” between the two countries, warning that the strain could affect the whole Middle East region. The interview was published Wednesday. However, Fahmy said he was “not worried about this turmoil in relations,” because it’s also a chance for the two to “better evaluate their relationship in the future.” The Obama administration’s decision to cut off military aid was meant as a warning that it no longer can be “business as usual” with Cairo, as President Barack Obama put it last week. In announcing the decision, the State Department did not say how much of the $1.5 billion in annual military and economic aid to Egypt was affected. It held up the delivery of Apache helicopters, F-16 fighter jets, M1A1 Abrams tank kits, which are put together in Egyptian factories, and Harpoon anti-ship missiles. But the U.S. decision is more of a symbolic slap than a punishing wound to Egypt’s new military-backed government for its slog toward a return to democratic rule. The military-backed government enjoys the support of wealthy Gulf Arab states such as Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. These oil-rich states have poured billions of dollars into Egypt’s anemic coffers and to continue the common fight against Islamists. The U.S. also is withholding $260 million in cash assistance to the government in Cairo until “credible progress” is made toward an inclusive government set up through free and fair elections.

Increased demand for the process development and prototype manufacturing services available from Delcam Professional Services has prompted the addition of a Mori Seiki NMV 5000 machine to the range of five-axis machining equipment within its Advanced Manufacturing Facility. This latest expansion of the equipment at the company s Birmingham headquarters extends the company s ability to undertake high-speed, high-precision five-axis machining of complex parts. The range of support from Delcam Professional Services is mainly intended to help any company whose own engineering resource is needed to maintain its existing operations. The services provided can vary from supplying extra design, programming and machining resources when the customer s own staff or equipment are overloaded, through to developing dedicated software to automate existing manufacturing methods or to establishing completely new turn-key processes for the manufacture of novel designs. Recent developments from Delcam Professional Services include a novel five-axis machining method, programmed with Delcam s PowerMILL CAM system, for the creation of “fir-tree profiles in components for turbo machinery, and the programming, with Delcam s unique adaptive machining technology , of a new hybrid machine from Hamuel Maschinenbau for the remanufacturing of high-value metal components, such as turbine blades. The novel method for the creation of “fir-tree profiles was developed in partnership with Iruba, a German provider of engineered solutions, and machine-tool manufacturer Hermle. It allows these complex shapes to be produced on milling machines, such as the Hermle C60 five-axis machining centre, rather than having to use specialist broaching equipment. The use of PowerMILL s trochoidal strategies to program the operation gives a number of benefits, in particular high material removal rates with lower, and more consistent, cutting forces. The Hamuel hybrid machine combines five technologies in one unit five-axis CNC milling, laser cladding, robot polishing, inspection and laser marking. Any of these processes can be combined, as required by the particular project. The equipment costs only a fraction of the price of a multi-machine repair cell, as well as saving on floor space.

The new fault-tolerant solution will be rolled out over the next 12 months and will include two Hughes HX central hubs and broadband satellite terminals at 600 sites in the current mecom network. To ensure maximum system stability, the second central hub will provide fully automatic redundancy as a backup. Mecom s decision to select Hughes technology was based on a successful 20-year relationship between the two companies, during which Hughes Europe has provided mecom with a flexible and easy-to-integrate system. Ulrich Wiehsalla, managing director of mecom, said, Our very demanding customers expect from mecom not only a highly reliable, highly topical, and simultaneous supply of content, but they also pay particular attention to authenticity. They want to be certain that they receive the content issued, for example, by the German press agency (dpa) with a 100% guarantee. Especially in the area of security services, it is essential that mecom continues to function effectively, even in a crisis situation where public networks are not working. We have done this in the past and want to ensure we maintain this in the future. Providing a closed network for hundreds of receivers on a single central hub allows mecom to realise operational and maintenance benefits on a high-quality network at optimal cost. As part of the new agreement, Hughes will also provide comprehensive hardware support. This new contract with mecom is a testament to how Hughes technical innovation and exceptional customer service results in a high degree of customer loyalty, said Chris O’Dell, vice president of sales and marketing, Hughes Europe. Our teams worked closely together to create a high availability solution tailor-made to mecoms most demanding requirements in an environment where a few seconds delay in the transmission of messages may have significant economic implications. The Hughes HX System will support the transmission of satellite services through a new mecomTransmit Server . This new initiative was presented for the first time at the World Publishing Expo 2013 (IFRA Expo & Conference) in Berlin in early October, the world’s leading trade exhibition for news publishers.

Airbnb In New York City A Good Deal For Renters And Tourists, Not For Hotel Industy

Posted By on October 18, 2013

And the city says such rentals are cheating the city of lodging taxes. Since the mayor’s office began examining short-term rentals in 2006, it has fielded more than 3,000 complaints and issued almost 6,000 notices of violation, including fire, safety and occupancy infractions, which carry fines. Airbnb says 87 percent of hosts in New York share the space they live in with guests. The company has called the subpoena of customer information by Attorney General Eric Schneiderman an “unfounded fishing expedition” and says hosts are responsible for following varying laws around the world. NYC & Company, the city’s official tourism agency, issued a statement saying, “This illegal practice takes away much needed hotel tax revenue from city coffers with no consumer protections against fire- and health-code violations.” Neither city officials nor hotel organizations would estimate how much revenue hotels and the city might be losing. Landlords and tenant organizations have long complained that short-term sublets are a violation of most leases and a security issue. Having strangers coming in and out of a residential building “is a terrible problem,” says Tom Cayler, chairman of the Illegal Hotel Committee for Manhattan’s West Side Neighborhood Alliance. “If you come home at night and there are people in the lobby or elevator who you don’t know, you should be scared.” Sam Shaber, a musician who rented space on the Lower East Side for $150 to $225 a night, says she welcomed guests from France, Argentina, Sweden and elsewhere. And she said she always got a good sense of them from online exchanges and profiles before handing over the keys. “In this day and age of Craigslist, we have a radar for who’s weird,” Shaber said. “We never had one problem.” Airbnb renters say they can offer an experience hotels can’t the opportunity to live like a native in funky neighborhoods off the beaten tourist paths. Sergio Verdasco, 33, a mechanical engineer in San Sebastian, Spain, was hosted by Farer in Williamsburg for three nights. “It was an amazing experience a soft landing in a city where I don’t know the people and don’t speak the language well,” he said by phone.

New York court to hear Bloomberg’s appeal to restore soda ban

The Court of Appeals did not say why it had agreed to hear the appeal. The law would have barred restaurants, movie theaters, food carts and other businesses regulated by the city’s health department from selling sodas and other sugary beverages larger than 16 ounces (473 ml). In March, just one day before it was to take effect, a state judge found the policy to be illegal. A mid-level state appeals court agreed in July that the city’s mayoral-appointed health board had exceeded its authority when it approved the new regulation. It also noted that loopholes would have exempted grocery and convenience stores, such as 7-Eleven, known for its 64-ounce (1.9 liter) Big Gulp, as well as high-calorie milkshakes and coffee drinks, such as Starbucks Frappuccinos. The ruling was a victory for companies including Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Dr Pepper Snapple, which had argued that the law would do little to address obesity while imposing unnecessary costs. The restaurant industry and several business groups also had filed papers in support of the lawsuit. Bloomberg said on Thursday he expects the state’s top court to overturn the lower-court rulings. The soda ban “would help save lives, and we are confident the Appeals court will uphold the Board of Health’s rule,” he said in a statement, noting that excessive soda consumption is linked to obesity and diabetes, which kill at least 5,000 New Yorkers each year. A spokesman for the American Beverage Association, a trade group and the lead plaintiff in the case, said the group looked forward to a final decision on the ban. The city had argued that the lower appeals court had ignored decades of case law establishing that the health board has unique powers to regulate public health.

Youth unemployment in Spain and Greece is above 50%; while rates in Portugal, Italy and Ireland are all above 30% (CNN) — The head of the International Monetary Fund is warning European governments against complacency despite the region returning to growth earlier this year for the first time since 2011. Speaking at the Fund’s headquarters in Washington DC, managing director Christine Lagarde told CNN’s Richard Quest that member states cannot afford “fatigue” on their commitments to create jobs and to shore up the region’s banks. Europe out of limelight Europe has been spared some market scrutiny recently, as headlines shifted to the U.S. debt ceiling negotiations and the Federal Reserve’s bond-buying program. Europe’s energy challenges Solving Portugal’s economic woes Lagarde said that leaders in the currency union will be eager to remain out of the limelight. Is Serbia ready for EU membership? And last year European finance ministers approved a 39.5 billion euro ($51.6 billion) lifeline for Spain’s banks, struggling after the property bubble went bust. In return for state aid, creditors have imposed strict rules on debtor nations, forcing them to carry out harsh austerity measures. However, that strategy has come under question. Mujtaba Rahman, Europe director at Eurasia Group, said Germany may believe austerity is working but “clearly there’s a strand that believes otherwise.” Some eurozone economies, he noted, believe they have improved after easing off on austerity. Tackling youth unemployment Lagarde, a former French finance minister, also highlighted youth unemployment as the biggest priority on the policy-making agenda. She said: “Countries have to do their job; the IMF will help the process as well so we have to partner goodwill, the money available and political determination to focus on the right issues.” Youth unemployment in Spain and Greece is above 50%, where strict austerity programs are in place, while rates in Portugal, Italy and Ireland are all above 30%. Widespread unemployment has led to anti-austerity protests in the worst-hit nations with many demonstrations turning violent. But Rahman believes that youth unemployment is a problem that must be tackled by domestic governments rather than at the European level. He added: “It’s clear that politicians are not willing to mobilize a large amount of resources within the EU budget to tackle the problem of youth unemployment, not in a meaningful way.” He added: “At the margin there may be a commitment do something but this isn’t meaningful.” CNN’s Oliver Joy contributed to this report

(EIH) , the owner of the Oberoi brand of hotels, have halved in the past three years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Indian Hotels jumped 3.3 percent yesterday in Mumbai to 50.30 rupees, while EIH rose 0.2 percent to 54.60 rupees. No Scope Indian Hotels reported its first annual loss since at least 1997 in the year ended March 31 as sales growth slowed to the least in three years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. EIH had its smallest profit since 2005. I dont see any scope for room-rate increases over the next couple of years, said Sumant Kumar, an analyst with Elara Securities (India) Pvt. in Mumbai . Theres an oversupply in this space and demand is not picking up as corporate side expenditure is muted given the economic scenario. Indias $1.8 trillion economy expanded 5 percent last fiscal year, the slowest pace since 2003, as companies and businesses curtailed travel budgets. Occupancy rate at luxury hotels fell to 59.9 percent in the year through March 2012 from 73.8 percent in 2006, according to data provided by the Federation of Hotel and Restaurant Associations of India . Slowing economic growth hasnt discouraged the operators from betting on Indias potential. Accor, which has started a three-year reorganization plan that includes increasing its focus on emerging markets, is betting on Indias middle class, which is forecast to add the equivalent of more than the entire population of Germany in less than a decade. Middle Class Between 2010 and 2021, Indias emerging middle class — who earn as much as $5,550 a year — will swell by 100 million to 570 million, PricewaterhouseCoopers estimated in June 2012. Paris-based Accor , which has 23 percent of its hotels in Asia, considers India as one of its three strongest growing markets over the longer term after China and Indonesia , Issenberg said. More than half the hotels it will build will be in Asia, he said. Hotels are a consumer item, its a discretionary spend, Issenberg said. As the middle class continues to grow in Asia, travel will continue to grow and grow faster than GDP. Nakul Anand, chief executive of ITCs hospitality business, said in July that the operator is developing at least 18 projects.

Canada’s Oil And Gas Regulator Investigates A Leak In A Transcanada Pipeline

Posted By on October 18, 2013

National Energy Board spokeswoman Rebecca Taylor said Thursday that the TransCanada had a rupture on its NOVA gas transmission line. She says the pipeline has been shut down. More business news In Europe, a lingering crisis gets new attention Howard Schneider The ECB will be looking hard at whos healthy and whos not as it takes over supervision of the regions banks. More business news TransCanada spokesman Shawn Howard says no public safety threat was expected. He says the line carries sweet gas, which is low in poisonous hydrogen sulfide. Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper has been pushing for U.S. State Department approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. That pipeline would carry oil from Canadas tar sands to the U.S. Gulf Coast. Environmental groups oppose the pipeline saying it would carry dirty oil that contributes to global warming. They also worry about a spill. Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Cam Ward motivated by Team Canada snub

He wants in on Sochi. “Ive known Cam for a very, very long time,” said Hurricanes captain Eric Staal . “He may say that didnt bother him a lot, but it definitely added some fuel to the fire that was already there.” The way Staal sees it, its a win-win for Ward and for the Hurricanes if he plays well enough to get back into the good graces of Team Canada. That means a lot of Ws for Carolina in the process. And despite not going to Canadas camp last summer, Ward never felt out of the running for a shot at Sochi. “I never looked at it last summer when the camp roster came out that I couldnt make the team anymore,” said Ward. “I looked at it as extra motivation and I know that if I can play like I know I can in the first half of the season, theyll be watching and that Ill be in consideration. Thats my focus. If I make that team, obviously that means the Hurricanes are doing well, too. Thats what Im striving for, thats my goal.” First things first. For Ward, this season is about re-establishing himself and getting back into the swing of things. “For me its about getting the game reps again,” said Ward. “When you include the lockout and then my injury, I was basically sitting for a year.
