While the board of directors of Reliance Capital has noted and accepted the resignation, Reliance Home Finance said its audit committee and board will meet on Thursday and will decide upon the new statutory auditor. Reliance Capital and Reliance Home Finance said that PWC cited the companies’ failure to convene audit committee meetings within the expected time, despite multiple letters of intent sent to them, as one of the reasons for the resignation.

According to PWC, these actions by the companies “have prevented it from performing its duties as statutory auditors and exercising independent judgment in making a report to the members of the company, and impaired its independence, and hence, it is no longer in a position to complete the audit; and instead feels compelled to withdraw from the audit engagement and resign,” both the companies said, elaborating on the reasons behind the resignation. The companies, however, stated they duly responded to the various queries and letters of PWC and have convened meetings of their audit committees on June 12, 2019, to further respond to the letters from PWC.last_img read more

MIKE MYERS OWES HIS LOVE FOR BOHEMIAN RHAPSODY TO TORONTO HIGHWAY

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Advertisement Advertisement Twitter Mike Myers says he owes his connection to “Bohemian Rhapsody” to a Toronto highway.The Canadian funnyman, dressed up as a British soldier for Halloween, told Stephen Colbert that his relationship to the Queen hit first started as a kid while driving with his brother down the Don Valley Parkway listening to CHUM 104.5.“I was in my brother’s Corolla that had a vomit stain on the side … my brother pulled over and from that moment on we each had a ‘Galileo,’” Myers told the “Late Show” host, referencing how they’d take turns belting out one particular line of the song. Login/Register With: Advertisement “If you took somebody’s ‘Galileo,’ you got beat up, basically,” he cracked.Watch Myers talk about his Toronto connection to “Bohemian Rhapsody.” Story continues below:Myers carried that love for the song into negotiations for the movie “Wayne’s World.” He said he fought to include the song in the movie’s now-famous head-banging scene.Producer Lorne Michaels initially rejected the idea — Myers said Michaels wanted a Guns ‘N Roses song, instead.“It wasn’t something I grew up with,” he said, adding that he threatened to walk away from the movie if they didn’t agree to include the Queen anthem.“I’ve got the Scarborough in me,” joked Myers, giving a shout out to the Toronto suburb where he grew up.Myers’ relationship with the song has now come full circle. In his latest role he portrays a fictional EMI record exec in the Queen biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” which opened in theatres this week.Ironically, Myers’ character is the one to tell the band that they can’t put “Bohemian Rhapsody” on their album because it will never be a song teenagers will want to head-bang to while driving in their cars.last_img read more

UN and aid agencies demand greater humanitarian access to Darfur Sudan

Briefing reporters in New York today, UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that although there have been significant improvements in recent weeks, there are continuing delays and problems in registering non-government organizations (NGOs) and in clearing equipment and aid supplies from customs.”Procedures remain bureaucratic and inconsistent and some delays continue to be reported,” he said.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) has noticed a rapid increase in the number of NGOs working in Darfur in recent weeks as international attention focuses on the humanitarian crisis in the impoverished region.Mr. Dujarric said around 20 NGOs are already operating in Darfur and another 10 are preparing to work there as well.More than one million people are thought to be internally displaced and at least another 150,000 have become refugees in Chad since fighting broke out early last year between the Sudanese Government and two rebel groups.Government-allied Arab militias, known as the Janjaweed, have also conducted numerous human rights abuses against the region’s black Africans, according to two UN human rights reports issued last month. These include killings, rapes and the ransacking and destruction of villages.Last Friday Secretary-General Kofi Annan – who is visiting Sudan later this week to see the crisis first-hand – said the people of Darfur are “suffering a catastrophe” and described the Janjaweed’s activities as “bordering on ethnic cleansing.”As well as discussing obstacles and delays with officials in Khartoum, Mr. Dujarric said UN agencies and NGOs are concerned about the protection of staff and civilians.Despite an official Sudanese Government request for all arms of government to curb the militias, aid agencies say they have seen no major changes. read more

SecretaryGeneral closely following Israeli withdrawal from Gaza

United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan is following attentively the process of Israeli disengagement from Gaza and the northern West Bank and he is hopeful that it will be executed in a peaceful and smooth manner, building on the coordination efforts of James Wolfensohn, the Quartet Special Envoy for Disengagement, his spokesman said today.“The Secretary-General believes this is a moment of promise and hope. Success will demand statesmanship of the highest order, on a sustained basis, on the part of all concerned,” his spokesman said in a statement delivered at the noon briefing at United Nations Headquarters in New York.The disengagement, which is to be the first Israeli withdrawal from occupied Palestinian territory, began today and is expected to last into the month of October. Quartet members – the UN, European Union, Russia and United States – which sponsored the peace plan calling for a two-State solution to the Middle East crisis have been briefed by Mr. Wolfensohn about the progress achieved in the past two months and the considerable work that remains ahead, the statement said.They have been discussing the role of the international community in promoting a revitalization of the peace process. They will meet in mid-September to assess matters jointly, the statement added. In response to a question at the noon briefing for journalists, the spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that the UN had pulled non-essential staff out of Gaza temporarily and relocated them in Jerusalem. “Those people who have been relocated perform administrative functions, mostly for UNRWA (UN Relief and Works Agency), but (also) some other UN agencies in Gaza. In that relocation, great care has been taken so that the temporary relocations have no effect on the operational activities of UN agencies working in Gaza,” Mr. Dujarric said. read more

Blizzard Teams Up With Dark Horse For the Overwatch Anthology

first_img ‘Overwatch’ Coming to Nintendo Switch… In Case FormLego Adds Two More ‘Overwatch’ Sets: Wrecking Ball and Junke… The story of Overwatch is one you only get in tiny bits and pieces in the game itself. Some players are quite okay with this and are not playing Blizzard’s newest game for cut-scenes and dialogue. They are there for competitive play and to rise in the ranks. But if you’re like me, you want to know a little bit more about the story and world in which you are casually dropping thirty plus hours a week into. Luckily for some of us story fans, Overwatch: Anthology Volume 1 does just that. But let’s first delve into the early creation of this game topping phenomenon.Overwatch is a series a lot of gamers had been waiting for their whole lives but never knew they wanted. A first-person shooter that is more than just tactical weaponry and camouflage. Something a bit lighter in tone but not too watered down. Leave it to the ace team over at Blizzard to bring us exactly what we all have been secretly craving. But even the gaming giants at Blizzard were unsure what to bring to the table. Before Overwatches creation, Blizzard was working on an MMO title called Titan which was much different in tone. It was said to have been game that looked to have the cinematics of StarCraft II, and the character designs from Pixar’s The Incredibles. After the success of games like Heroes of the Storm and Hearthstone, Blizzard immediately halted production on Titan and within that same year, shifted all their talents to a new team-based shooter titled Overwatch.This colorful series starts out with the creation of the Omnics. These are androids created to help build and advance the people of earth’s way of living. But like all good science fiction tropes, the Omnics turned on humans and an all-out war raged on. The UN then combined each countries forces to bring an end to the crises. Thus Overwatch was born. The main strike team however only consisted of five members. Reinhardt Wilhelm, Torbjorn Lindholm, Ana Amari, Jack Morrison (Soldier 76) and Gabriel Reyes (Reaper). After the war finished and the end of most of the Omnics was all but confirmed, the UN needed to keep and maintain peace once more. To help do this, Numbani in West Africa became the center of human and Omnic cooperation; while a group of Omnic monks from the Himalayas who claim to have souls were granted permission to stay and help keep the peace.This is where the bread and butter of the Overwatch universe really come into play and where the game itself takes place. CGI rendered animated shorts were created to tell a few stories before and after the game released, but these were mainly character driven and came out pretty sparsely. However, to get more stories out to fans quickly, Blizzard teamed up with Dark Horse Comics to release a comic series. These would focus on each character like the animated shorts, but overtime ends up filling in missing pieces to the overall story arcs while opening doors to completely other questions entirely.Blizzard has been posting these comics to there site since its release in 2016. The writing team consists of Blizzard alumni such as Robert Brooks, Micky Neilson, Andrew Robinson, James Waugh and of course, Overwatch senior story writer Michael Chu. Artists Bengal, Chamba, Nesskain, Joe Ng, Espen Grundetjern, Miki Montllo and Gray Shuko draw up some amazingly beautiful panels for this series; all unique to each character’s story and atmosphere.  Dark Horse Comics has finally collected all twelve issues and has released Anthology Volume 1 in stores today. These stories focus on McCree, Reinhardt, Junkrat & Roadhog, Symmetra, Pharah, Torbjorn, and Ana, but also hint at other main characters stories within their own. We also get a wonderful looking into the thick of the Omnic battle in the Uprising story, along with touching moments in the two-holiday shorts Junkenstein and Reflections. I will personally say that the Junkenstein story was everything I ever I wanted out of an Overwatch Halloween comic! From the members of Overwatch kicking back in their alternate outfits enjoying  pints of ale and a good laugh, to the beautifully drawn and haunting story told by Reinhardt trying to catch a fright out of McCree and the gang (fingers crossed for a sequel Junkenstein story this month!)Like most collections, this one adds a few pages of concept art and early costume designs for certain characters. Overall this is definitely a must for any Overwatch fan, casual or not. Even if you do not play the game, I think comic readers will really enjoy the characters and their worlds depicted within the pages. Who knows, It might make you even pick up a controller.You can purchase the hardcover of Overwatch: Anthology Vol. 1 here.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.

Diversity in Medical Marijuana in Md Up in Smoke

first_imgProbably not since the great Pike’s Peak Gold Rush of 1859, has Colorado enjoyed an economic boom sparked (pun intended) by the legalization of marijuana in January 2014.According to the Colorado Department of Revenue, the state took in $996,184,788 in medical and recreational marijuana sales in 2015. In the first five months of 2016 alone, Colorado raked in $486 million, on track to surpass the $1 billion mark by the end of this month.Weed revenues in Colorado have several states scrambling to lift prohibition and allow businesses to set up shop, while state governments collect millions in tax revenues and fees.Sean YoesYet, of the 25 states that have legalized recreational or medical marijuana, fewer than one percent of licensed dispensaries and retail stores are owned and operated by people of color.As Maryland prepares to enter the pot business, issuing preliminary medical marijuana licenses, the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (which oversees the process), seems determined to keep lucrative licenses out of Black and Brown hands.Almost all of the preliminary licenses have gone to companies led by White men. Of the 15 issued in August, Green Thumb Industries (GTI), who has a Black man (former Ravens lineman Eugene Monroe) as part of the ownership team, was initially awarded a license only to have it taken away.Cheryl Glenn, chairperson of the Legislative Black Caucus says Black legislators are determined to derail the process of implementation of a medical marijuana infrastructure in the state, unless people of color have an opportunity to be full participants in what could be a profitable industry for generations.“We have to be a strong, organized, relevant organization,” Glenn said during an interview on AFRO First Edition on November 1.  “I’ve seen this Black caucus more unified on this issue…We are 100 percent unified that the state of Maryland…we will not have this industry up and running in this state with no African American participation,” she added.The political infighting on this issue has been ferocious and it could get even more intense as we head into the 2017 legislative session. At the center of the machinations is the Maryland Medical Cannabis Commission (MMCC).“The commission has no oversight, the governor can’t even control the commission,” Glenn said. According to Glenn, the bill that legalized medical marijuana in 2014 (which she sponsored) included specific language on diversity. “It says the commission shall actively seek racial diversity, ethnic diversity and geographic diversity,” Glenn said.So what happened? Glenn says, “one of the new Republican delegates,” wrote a letter to Attorney General Brian Frosh seeking guidance on racial diversity in the process of distribution of licenses. Glenn argues Frosh’s instruction that a disparity study had to be utilized was misinterpreted; no disparity study was in place, because marijuana was still illegal. Ultimately, the MMCC relied on a, “blind,” process (which seems ironic).“We were able to fight back the most onerous regulations that the commission rolled out,” Glenn said, who adds the Black Caucus may introduce emergency legislation to strip the MMCC of its authority.Among the controversial regulations were restrictions on who could receive medical marijuana treatment based on criminal backgrounds connected specifically to drug possession offenses. A measure that seems inherently unfair given the fact Blacks and Hispanics are disproportionately given significantly more jail time for possession of marijuana, despite marijuana usage being roughly equal between Blacks, Hispanics Whites.That Maryland disproportionately enriches its coffers by fining and incarcerating Black and Brown people for marijuana possession, yet seems to be willfully shutting them out of the potentially multi-million dollar marijuana industry is beyond ironic.“Nationally, there are about 60 licenses for medical marijuana. Guess how many are owned by African Americans? Zero, zero…we’re not doing that in the state of Maryland,” Glenn said.“If we allow this to move forward in Maryland, we don’t need a Black caucus. In fact, I would be ashamed to even admit that I’m a Black legislator in the state of Maryland. This…new industry is like oil. This is a wealthy billion dollar business.”Sean Yoes is a senior contributor for the AFRO and host and executive producer of AFRO First Edition, which airs Monday through Friday, 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on WEAA 88.9.last_img read more

Our favorite obscure Marvel characters

first_img Crossfire1/10This Not-Deadshot character exists primarily as a counterpoint villain for Hawkeye, the Avenger with perfect aim that basically limits himself to arrows. William Cross was a C.I.A. agent who was one of the top “brainwashers” at the agency by virtue of the comic being written in 1979. It wasn’t enough for Cross who decided to split from the C.I.A. to form his own group of private mercenaries. Since supervillainy doesn’t pay if you’re just any old guy, one of Cross’ enemies tried to kill him by blowing up his office, but only blew up part of his face. Cross got some bionic implants to replace his left eye and left ear and went on to torment people and is absolutely not just a lesser Deadshot for Marvel. Nope. That never happens in comics.<><> The Marvel Universe is ever-expanding these days, with a slew of successful blockbuster films from Marvel Studios over the next few years serving as the base for television and Netflix shows like Luke Cage or Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.In the comics, semi-regular events that change the status quo across the entire Marvel Comics line have given us a new Hulk (Amadeus Cho), Captain America (Sam Wilson), Thor (Jane Foster), Ms. Marvel (Kamala Khan) and Spider-Man (Miles Morales) while keeping the originals around.The inter-connected nature of Marvel comics means all their hero stories and space stories populate multiple planets as well as most time periods of the history of the Earth: fictional-past, fictional present, and fictional future. That’s a lot of stories and a lot of heroes, villains, and things in-between.AdChoices广告It’s easy to lose some gems of Marvel comic book history amongst the sheer number of characters and story.

Upswing in Dalit writing but where are the readers

first_imgDalit literature is on an upswing with several new authors highlighting the plight of Dalits in India and pointing out solutions to the many grave problems they face – but the genre, by and large, is still thirsting for readers. There are not many publishing houses that focus specifically on Dalit writing, but a quick look at their recent offerings – fiction as well as non-fiction – suggest Dalit writers, particularly young authors, are increasingly focusing on the steps needed to bring about change. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”Instead of just writing about the socio-economic conditions or the situation of the marginalised class, the new writers are concentrating on how to improve their status and penning solutions instead of stating the problems,” said S.S. Bauddh of Samyak Prakashan. Samyak Prakashan, located in Madipur in West Delhi, is one of the few publishing houses solely dedicated to Dalit writing. As is Gautam Prakashan, run by S.S. Gautam, who noted that even authors from poor financial backgrounds are now taking an interest in writing. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”Earlier, Dalit writers would be people who were ex-servicemen, people who had managed to come out of poverty, get an education and secure a government job. They had the opportunity to write books, below-poverty-line people had no opportunity. But now, things are changing,” Gautam elaborated while sharing his analysis of the ongoing trends in Dalit literature.According to Ashok Das, Editor, Dalit Dastak magazine, recent incidents like the death of Rohit Vemula and JNU student Muthukrishanan Jeevanantham have provoked many youngsters to take to writing.”There is a lot of anger among the youth. They are not ready to be oppressed, rather are becoming vocal about the discrimination they face, be it in educational institutes or at work places. Young people are taking up the pen to ventilate their angst,” said Das, who stepped into publishing books two years back. Publishers say that a majority of Dalit writing comprises non-fiction and there is little scope for writers to foray into the world of fiction.”Dalit autobiographies are quite popular, because they reflect fact and not fiction. It is a grim reality that is difficult for us to ignore and subsequently that is reflected in our writing,” Gautam maintained. The history of Dalit literature can be traced back to the 1850s when it gained prominence through the works of Savitribai Phule – wife of Dalit thinker and social reformer Jyotirao Phule – a feminist considered to be the first to pen works on the plight of the marginalised class.”However, it is Ambedkar who is considered to have brought a revolution in Dalit writing. He is the pioneer of Dalit literature whose book ‘Annihilation of Caste’ is an inspiration for the marginalised class,” Bauddh noted. Despite the rise in number of writers and interest in writing about Dalits in India, the genre is still struggling to expand its horizons. The publishers said that around 150 books are brought out every year, including those written in regional languages. Why then is the popularity of these books still very limited?”Firstly because of a lack of readership. Only those (upper class) who have curiosity about our issues show interest in reading our literature. These comprise people who are into either academics or doing some research work,” Das pointed out.The publishers also blamed the government for restricting the access of the books to public libraries and maintained it has amounted to imposing an “undeclared ban” on Dalit books.”A reason why people are not even aware of Dalit literature is because its reach has been limited. Public libraries run by the government don’t take our books. So how will the readers know about them?,” Bauddh asked. The publishers also added that there is little recognition of their efforts by the government and reiterated that the number of Dalit writers who have been given Sahitya Akademi or Jnanpith awards is still very low.They also maintained that they have forayed into publishing to bring about positive change and not to make a profit.”We are not businessmen, we are revolutionaries. We didn’t step into publishing with the aim of making profits but to ventilate our struggle and the discrimination we faced. It is more a battle of ideologies,” Bauddh contended.The publishers said finance still remains a big challenge for them. Bauddh and Gautam, both former government employees, left their jobs to turn into full-time publishers.However, they added that they would continue to publish and highlight the plight of Dalits in India even at the cost of continued losses.”I had invested all my savings, provident fund amount, to start the publishing house. There is no profit in our work,” Gautam noted.”We will continue to publish; financial losses cannot diminish our purpose,” Das said.last_img read more

The Surface Pro Could Get Big Redesign for 2019

first_imgWhile the Surface Pro 6 looks just like its predecessors, the company looks to be planning a makeover for its flagship Windows 10 machine. According to a published patent, the company is trying to shrink the overall size of the device by way of its detachable Type Cover.This speculation comes from a Microsoft patent entitled ‘Circuit Board for an Input Device,’ requested on June 28, and published on Oct. 25 at WIPO (the World Intellectual Property Organization. The patent includes drawings of a device that looks just like the Surface Pro.MORE: New iPad Pro vs. Surface Pro 6: Which Should You Buy?MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

The Dutch site Windows United posits that this change could “‘could result in a reduced height of the keyboard,” (though that’s filtered through Google Translate). The patents also hint at the Surface Pro’s bezels slimming down in a future update.This fits in with existing reports about future Surface Pros, as we’ve seen reports of USB Type-C ports finally coming to the detachable, and the venerable Mary Jo Foley has reported that a Surface Pro with a heavy redesign is targeted for the middle of 2019.Another recently published patent revealed Microsoft is tinkering with a Surface Pen with a retractable tip that collapses in when pressed against a screen.A word about patents, though: they’re not exactly proof of a guaranteed future. Some are based around plans for far, far down the line (and things could change before then), and others are created by companies looking to block competitors from developing a technology that the applicant themselves isn’t planning on creating.Image Credits: Microsoft; World Intellectual Property Organization6 Reasons to Buy the Surface Pro 6 (and 2 Reasons to Skip It)The Best Cyber Monday Microsoft Surface Deals Right NowSurface Laptop 2 vs. Surface Pro 6: Which Is Right for You? by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeKelley Blue Book5 Mid-engine Corvettes That Weren’tKelley Blue BookUndoGrepolis – Free Online GameGamers Around the World Have Been Waiting for this GameGrepolis – Free Online GameUndoTODAYPolice Identify Girl Licking Ice Cream Tub In Viral VideoTODAYUndoCNN International for ANAThe Secret Of What It Takes To Be Naomi OsakaCNN International for ANAUndoMy Food and FamilyHealthy, Homemade Drunken Thai Noodles In Just 20 MinutesMy Food and FamilyUndoForbes.comSerena Williams Definitely Made This Forbes ListForbes.comUndoAdvertisement Author Bio Henry is a senior writer at Laptop Mag, covering security, Apple and operating systems.

Vital Launches GameChanging VNA on Demand Imaging Informatics Solution

first_img Vital Images, Inc., a Minneapolis-based advanced medical imaging and informatics company, launched “VNA on demand” to the global marketplace. While Vital continues to lead the world in advanced visualization and personalized medicine algorithms, 2016 heralds an increased focus on enterprise informatics. Evidence of this strategy will become evident over the coming weeks in a number of future solution announcements, related to leading the world in unique interoperability platforms. Vital is committed to bringing the vision and strategy behind advanced algorithm ingenuity into informatics, targeting informatics, accountable care, collaborative care, integrating multiple EMRs, HIE, VNA, PACS, ECM and more. VNA on demand sets forth the first example of next generation vendor neutral platforms, based on lessons learned in first generation platforms. This next generation platform, VNA on demand, allows chief information officers and their associated technology teams to deploy VNA in their timeframe and on their terms. The solution allows the customer to store only desired images and the customer has control of the entire situation without enormous impost of their resources and infrastructure. This game-changing concept provides many different benefits, such as immediate relief for customers with image storage issues and others interested in VNA who do not have resources to deploy immediately.“We are excited to launch VNA on demand to the global marketplace. Based on direct customer feedback, this new product development is in lockstep with our customer-centered product requirements ethos. VNA on demand provides an immediate non disruptive solution, leveraging existing infrastructure, truly changing the face of the VNA marketplace forever. From an enterprise informatics perspective at Vital,  this is a necessary yet incremental step in our vision to provide unique solutions in enterprise interoperability, patient engagement, secure access to the patient’s complete health record and more which is in lockstep with the Accountable Care environment,” said President and CEO at Vital, Jim Litterer.“As someone who was involved in shaping the creation of the first generation concept of VNA in 2004, I bring forth a succinctly unique perspective to this simple, yet elegant and powerful solution.

International arrivals into Asia Pacific continue strong growth

first_imgInternational arrivals into Asia Pacific continue strong growth International arrivals into the Asia Pacific region continued the strong growth momentum of previous years with a gain of 5.4% during the first half-year of 2015, resulting in close to 12.5 million additional arrivals year-on-year. This continues the full year growth of 6.1% during calendar year 2014, which culminated in a total foreign inbound volume of more than 550 million.These are some of the top-level findings contained within the Annual Tourism Monitor 2015 Final Edition released today by the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA). Following the release of the Early Edition in May this year, the Final Editionincludes a number of other measures of travel activity and profiles including length of stay, expenditure and several other useful quantitative metrics.Early indicators of travel flows for calendar year 2015 (year-to-date) are also provided for 39 Asia Pacific destinations as an early warning mechanism for identifying major shifts and movements in key source and destination markets.Highlights of the Annual Tourism Monitor 2015 Final Edition include:International Visitors arrivals to the Asia Pacific region – as defined by the 45 destinations covered in this report – have collectively shown significant growth over the last five years rising from almost 455 million in 2010 to over 552 million in 2014.Asia continued its dominance in 2014, capturing more than 410 million foreign arrivals – a relative share of more than 74% – led by Northeast Asia with a share of 47% of total international arrivals into Asia Pacific.China, Hong Kong SAR and the USA were the top three generating markets for all international arrivals within the Asia Pacific region in 2014, although there were significant deviations in that grouping from sub-region to sub-region.For early 2015, the 39 destinations in the Asia Pacific region with arrivals data for early 2015 show a collective gain of 5.4% year on year, compared to growth of five percent for the same destinations and periods of 2014.The Americas region is showing the strongest 2015 period growth (6.8%) year on year, followed by the Pacific (6.3%) and then Asia (5.0%).Early 2015 indictors for the key source market show that Thailand, Hong Kong SAR and Japan captured more than 4.1 million additional arrivals from China, period over period in 2015.The impact of the contraction in the Russian outbound market is also considered in light of destinations across the Asia Pacific region in early 2015, with Thailand, Turkey and China being particularly negatively affected.“Understanding the immediate impacts of changes in the foreign inbound markets allows us to contain the negative consequences and boost the positive. This Final Edition of the 2015 PATA Annual Tourism Monitor therefore provides an important first step in quantifying these changes and allowing us to make resource deployment decisions based on those quantification metrics,” said PATA CEO Mario Hardy.“Our publications along with PATAmPOWER are valuable tools for those planning and making important decisions in allocating their resources for the future.” PATASource = PATAlast_img read more
