Who are Wishful Thinkers and How Can you Capture Them? – Travel Market Report

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 10:01 am

Sixty-one percent of consumers in a recent travel study consider themselves Wishful Thinkers, namely people who (prior to COVID-19) want to travel but dont do it nearly enough. While some of these respondents pull the trigger now and again, the majority of them just arent taking the trips they dream about.

The results, which come from a study recently commissioned by a veteran tour operator who wanted to gain some insight on todays travelers, prompted the staff at Travel Market Report to find out how travel advisors can convert these dreamers to doers?

In our interviews with advisors, the advice was never ending. And yet there was a common theme that echoed in each response: personal.

Whether referring to the personal attention an advisor provides, the personal experience someone has in-destination or the personal connection someone makes to a social media post that gets them excited about traveling, the word personal was paramount when asked how travel advisors can best win over this group.

Hands-on Service Wins Every TimeIts no industry secret that personal attention from a travel advisor can make all the difference. A tried-and-true method, Susan Mirabito, executive vice president of operations for the Travel Network/Vacation Central in Anglewood Cliff, New Jersey, said its the one refrain she consistently uses in motivating her team of advisors. I always remind them its about human contact, going back to sending a physical snail mail card and saying thank you for your business. Its about asking the client what their interests are and what their level of comfort is and being able to provide all of what they need.

Mirabito teased that travel is the only industry where you can ask how and where your clients sleep and not get slapped. Do a husband and wife want one bed or twins? Do they want separate rooms? If youre not asking these questions, youre not serving your client properly.

She went on to point out that the millennial demographic is using travel advisors more than any other demographic (with Gen Xers close behind). Why? Because they are looking for authentic experiences and they want a flawless vacation. They want their interests and needs met.

Personal interaction is the tipping point, agreed Jeff Leach, owner of owner of Dream Vacations in Omaha, Nebraska, who noted that his agency is not investing money in marketing right now, but rather spending its dollars on personal interaction opportunities where he and his wife (and agency partner) can tell their travel stories. Leachs agency relies heavily on face-to-face marketing at expos, through sponsoring golf events and presenting at weekly referral groups, which all provide the opportunity to talk freely with people without making a hard sell. I was anxious about my first trip to Europe, worried about the food and the flying, so when I share my own story with people, it makes them feel more comfortable. When someone is on the fence about traveling, its nice when they can talk with someone who can relate to what theyre feeling.

Social Media Bridges the GapAlthough some might argue that social media is anything but personal, many advisors we spoke with said the opposite ? claiming that platforms like Facebook, YouTube and Instagram serve as a private window to their personal travels, thus giving viewers an intimate look at the experience. Unlike traditional resort brand photography that seems to go unnoticed or fall flat with users, personal photos and experiences captured on video are providing the push many wishful thinkers need to seal the deal on a vacation.

Today, social media is the access point to our customers. We have to leverage that as best we can, said James Berglie, president of Be All Inclusive in Fallston, Maryland. The best way to show the client experience is for advisors to travel and do fam trips.

Leach concurred with Berglie, adding that prior to COVID-19, social media was one of the best avenues theyve ever employed because it showed how much fun we were having in our personal travels. We would post one photo and when we got back we were flooded with calls.

Groups Help Extend the Personal ExperienceA few of the advisors we interviewed rely heavily on groups, whether it be for a destination wedding or otherwise. By their accounts, group business is the best path towards repeat business, as it provides new travelers with an experience they might have otherwise not taken, as well as a go-to person they can contact for future vacations.

Most of Sarah Klines business consists of brides and grooms and their groups. Thanks to her niche, she has the opportunity to deal with a wide range of people, who in many cases find group travel and the assistance of an on-site group leader more comforting than going it alone. I love dealing with the first experience people but the truth is, they wouldnt ever go if it wasnt for their friends and families going.

Kline, president of Time For Travel, Ltd., based in Davidsonville, Maryland, points out that these wishful thinkers typically take the plunge after they have been invited to either a destination wedding or some type of milestone group trip and its all they needed to catch the travel bug. When that happens, she inherits a whole new set of clients.

A Promise of Security Goes A Long WayAlthough potential travelers cannot always be escorted personally to a destination, there is a certain level of security that feels personal when you know an advisor is just a phone call or text message away.

Everybody wants to travel but there is a fear of security, said Mirabito. Some people have this misnomer that nothing is going to go wrong. But things go wrong and you have to have the security of knowing there is someone you can call. By using an advisor or tour operator, especially one who has a great in-destination company, there is someone there to look out for you. The security of having an advisor can make people travel.

Kline added that whatever their fears, serving as a second set of eyes for her clients is the confirmation they need to go, not to mention providing them with insurance coverage and not sending a client someplace she has never been. I wont send anybody anywhere I wouldnt go or wouldnt take my family to.

While personal undoubtedly topped the list of advice handed out by advisors, there were some additional takeaways worth noting. For example, the ability to stagger payments for a trip and have it automatically deducted from your account can sometimes ease a clients concerns over budgeting for a vacation. Also, rather than having your client develop a bucket list, why not consider a Save for Later list that speaks less to their immortality and more to the future vacations that are within their reach both economically and geographically?

The best news from this study? Knowing there is a large group of untapped travelers just waiting for the right advisor with the tools to change their minds.

The myth of the apple – Evangelical Focus

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 10:01 am

Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest

is my beloved among the young men.

I delight to sit in his shade,

and his fruit is sweet to my taste.

(Song of Songs 2:3)

The Hebrew word thappuakh means apple or apple tree and refers to a species of tree now known as Malus domestica or common apple tree.

This name was translated into Greek as melon, and into Latin as malum. It is a fruit tree that was mentioned in the Old Testament and grew abundantly in Ashkelon, the country of the Philistines. There were several places that bore this name in the Hebrew Bible, such as Tapa (Joshua 12:17; 15;34; 17:8) and Bet-tapa (Joshua 15:53), which probably indicates that there were plantations of apple trees in many different parts of the Biblical lands.

Besides, in the book of Joel it appears as one of the fruit trees that were grown next to the vine, the fig-tree and the palm-tree (Joel 1:12). It was a plant that not only produced sweet, healthy fruit, but also provided very welcome protection from the burning rays of the sun (Song of Songs 2:3). Under its shade you could sleep peacefully (Song of Songs 8:5), and its aroma could reanimate you if you fainted (Song of Songs 2:5).

The Egyptians also grew these trees as far back as the era of Rameses II (13th century BC). Likewise, the Greeks associated their fruit with Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty and sexuality. The lover would throw an apple to his beloved to symbolically express his love for her and, if she caught it, it meant that she accepted him. [1]

Another popular myth, related with the Biblical story of the Fall and sin of Adam and Eve, is the belief that the forbidden fruit was an apple.

Scripture refers, in fact, to the fruit of the tree in the middle of the garden (Genesis 3:3), but it says nothing about apples. So why have so many painters and illustrators since ancient times represented Eve as biting an apple and then passing it to Adam? Why have artists and writers, from Albert Drer in 1504 to John Milton, in his 17th century narrative poem Paradise Lost insisted so strongly on the apple of discord?

The answer lies in the curious play on the Latin words, dating from the 4th century AD, associated with the Vulgate translation.

In fact, in the year 374, Pope Damasus I asked his secretary, the historian Jerome of Stridon, to translate the Bible into spoken Latin, from the earliest Hebrew versions available. This translation took 15 years to complete, and came to be known as the Vulgate. Later, in 1546, it was approved by the Council of Trent, and went on to become the official version of the Catholic Church.

The reference to the apple originated in the similarity in Latin between two Latin words. Jerome ingeniously conflated the Latin adjective malus, meaning bad, and the noun malum, which means apple to show how Eve, in biting the malum (the apple) fell prey to malus (evil).

resco de la Capilla Sixtina (Vaticano) pintado por Miguel ngel a principios del siglo XVI, en el que se representa la tentacin de Adn y Eva

However, the Hebrew text does not specify which fruit it was but uses the general term peri, which could refer to any kind of fruit. Some Jewish commentators suggest that it might have been a fig. This, in fact, is the fruit that Michelangelo painted in the famous scene of the temptation and expulsion from Eden depicted in the Sistine Chapel.

Other authors, besides apples and figs, refer to pomegranates, grapes, apricots, etc. Despite this, apples gained in popularity at the expense of the other options, especially after Albert Drers engraving, and thus other artists followed suit, so that Eves apple became widespread and became the myth that is now taken for granted.

From a botanical point of view, the origin of the apple tree is uncertain, though it is believed that other wild species like the Malus sylvestris, Malus orientalis and Malus sieversii became intermingled with the Malus domestica species cultivated by humans. This would locate the origin of the tree in Caucasia and Turkestan (central Asia). From there it would have spread to Palestine, Egypt, Greece, from where the Romans might have introduced the fruit to Europe. Now more than a thousand varieties of apples are grown throughout the world, the results of countless hybridations with wild apple species.

The apple is one of the healthiest fruits that exist as its nutrients are a source of numerous benefits for human beings. In particular, it is rich in pectin, a type of soluble fibre which forms part of the cell wall of plants. When this substance combines with sugar or different acids, it forms a jelly-like substance that is used to make jam. This soluble fibre helps to reduce the level of cholesterol in the blood, which makes apples a good means of keeping cholesterol under control.

Another interesting substance in this fruit is quercitin, a natural colouring which has antioxidant properties, that is to say, it neutralises the free radicals which oxidise the organism and contribute to the appearance of numerous diseases, such as a range of cancerous tumours. In this way, apples help to keep the intestines, and therefore the whole body, in a healthy condition.

In Greek Mythology, the Hesperides were nymphs who lived in a garden, known as the Hesperides Garden, where a very special apple tree grew. It was a tree that produced golden apples, which imparted immortality to whoever ate them (note the similarities with the Biblical story). The task of the Hesperides consisted in protecting this apple tree from any mortal who tried to steal the apples in order to become immortal. To this end, they were able to count on the help of a hundred-headed dragon called Ladon.

Hugh Macmillan (1833 1903), a minister of the Free Church of Scotland wrote the following, with reference to such dreams of immortality:

All these dreams have turned out to be vain and empty of meaning. They arise from earthly longings, rather than a divine promise: they are the fruit of egotism, not of holy aspiration. In a fallen world full of the sorrow caused by sin, no man can achieve fulfilment. Every fruit in the affairs of humankind is marked by suffering and only won through pain. Earthly happiness is a flower that always grows out of a cruel thorn, masked by human manipulation. The poetic myth that places the golden apples in the Hesperides, a garden guarded by dragons, is an allegory of our human reality: if we do not put to death the dragons of egotism and sloth we shall never achieve golden success in life. And even if we could achieve the objects of our desire without work or effort, we would not be able to enjoy them, because if we wish them to do us any real good, they must be the result of our self-denial and hard-work. This is the great lesson that we learn from way in which the Lord performed his miracles. They teach us that both in temporal and in spiritual matters, we cannot glibly throw ourselves into the arms of divine providence and grace if this means that we neglect our own responsibility and the work that it is our part to perform.

Never Seen Before Tolkien Works Will Be Published In 2021 – Unreserved Media

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 10:01 am

Lovers of Middle-earth rejoice, because next year there may be more to read of the magical land that has become beloved internationally by so many. This new collection explores the heart of the land filled with elves, dwarves, hobbits and magic in only the way Tolkien can satisfy.

The collection, titled The Nature of Middle-earth, covers themes including Elvish immortality and reincarnation as well as the geography of places where some of Tolkiens most famous epic fantasies were set.

Which is no surprise considering how much thought he put into the description of every path and woodland mystery in the Fellowship of the Ring when Frodo and gang leave the Shire for the first time.

Not only will this collection give more depth to the already considerable Middle-earth legendarium, but it may also even settle the long-running debate among readers about whether dwarf women had beards. Which will hopefully quell the debate thats been raging on Reddit for years.

Considered one of the founding fathers of modern fantasy, Tolkien is best known for his novels The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings, published in 1937 and 1954-1955. Translated in over 70 languages, the books are international bestsellers made even more famous by the well-received Hollywood trilogies directed by Peter Jackson.

The British author didnt stop there, he continued to write about Middle-earth in the following decades, right up until the years preceding his death in 1973. Tolkiens love for developing the land and its lore is obvious to anyone who delves into his literature.

For him, Middle-earth was part of an entire world to be explored, and the writings in The Nature of Middle-earthreveal the journeys that he took as he sought to better understand his unique creation, Deb Brody, vice-president of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt explains.

After his death, his son Christopher Tolkien worked on editing and putting together many of his unpublished works as his literary executor. Much of his writing was in pen and on scraps of paper, some drafts written over other drafts. From the manuscripts, he managed to publish various works such as The Silmarillion, The Children of Hrin andmore recently The Fall of Gondolin.

With Christopher having passed away earlier this year, The Nature of Middle-earth has been edited by Carl F. Hostetter, one of the worlds leading Tolkien experts and respected head of the Elvish Linguistic Fellowship. This international organisation, founded in 1988, studies the fictitious languages imagined by J.R.R. Tolkien.

To get ready for the new information, take a little journey through Middle-earth with this extensive interactive map created by chemical engineer Emil Johansson here.The book itself is due out 24 June 24 2021, and is published by HarperCollins in the UK and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt in North America.

David Fincher’s ‘Mank’ is a good Netflix movie about making the best movie ever – The Arizona Republic

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 10:01 am

The task at hand is to talk about Mank, David Finchers complicated new film about screenwriter Herman Mankiewicz.

But we cant really do that without also talking about another film: Citizen Kane, which Mankiewicz co-wrote or wrote, depending on whom you listen to. Mank leaves no doubt.

It is the story of how Mankiewicz, played brilliantly by Gary Oldman, wrote Citizen Kane, despite being drunk, dissolute and broken literally; hes in a cast throughout, the result of a fractured leg suffered in a car accident.

It worked out. Citizen Kane is generally regarded as the greatest movie ever made, and wewill not argue against that assessment.

But its lofty status scares some people off. Oh, it must be stodgy critic-bait, easier to admire than love.

Nothing could be further from the truth. While its hugely influential and undeniably important, Citizen Kane is also a hoot, an entertaining dismantling of the rich and powerful, a thinly veiled takedown of William Randolph Hearst that is genuinely thrilling as it goes about its business.

Its not the film you might think it is, in other words.

Mank kind of is.

A history of Hollywood as much as a story of Mankiewiczs screenwriting, Mank has an air of importance about it, Oldmans freewheeling performance notwithstanding. Give Oldman a role where his character drinks and smokes too much and hes a marvel. (He did win an Oscar for playing Winston Churchill in Darkest Hour, after all.)

Mankiewicz is confined to a bed in remote Victorville, California, a setup arranged by 24-year-old Orson Welles (Tom Burke). The idea is to let Mankiewiczs leg heal, get the script written and dry him out.

Two out of three aint bad.

Mankiewicz dictates pages of the script to Rita (Lily Collins), his assistant, who is patient but not infinitely so. Theres a German housekeeper, and John Houseman (Sam Troughton) prods Mankiewicz along asWelles enforcer.

But Fincher (working from a script by his late father, Jack, who died in 2003) isnt especially interested in the creative process. Hes more concerned with what got Mankiewicz to this point, and with whats gone on in the world along the way.

Much of the film, then, takes place in flashbacks. A noted script doctor (he worked on films like The Wizard of Oz and Dinner at Eight), Mankiewicz, a former reporter and theater critic, had a brilliant, savage wit that he didnt bother to tame, no matter whom he was around. Being constantly soused probably didnt help. An inveterate gambler, we see him betting on coin flips in the writers room.

But studio executives valued Mankiewiczs talent and put up with him, at least for a time.

He also had an unlikely friendship with Hearst (Charles Dance, who plays Hearst as more bemused than anything else), serving as sort of the court jester, it seems, as well as with Hearsts partner, Marion Davies, played by an outstanding Amanda Seyfried, with by far the most heartfelt performance in the film.

Her friendship with Mankiewicz is the most genuine and honest he has. Seyfried energizes the film whenever she appears, a voice of hard-won wisdom.

For her trouble, she would be depicted in Citizen Kane as the flighty, untalented shrew for whom Kane tried to buy a career. (In real life, she enjoyed much more success.) And we know how Mankiewicz depicted Hearst, as Kane.

Why? Maybe he just couldnt help himself (a recurringtheme in his life), but more likely it appears he was just fed up. We see the studios thriving as the Depression cripples families.

Through misleading newsreels genuine fake news movie moguls influence the California gubernatorial election (interesting enough, but something Fincher spends far too much time dissecting).

By the time Welles hired him, Mankiewicz really had nothing to lose, not that he was bound by constraints anyway. His self-destructive lifestyle would lead to his death at 55.

But here he had his one last chance, a shot at immortality, though of course you cant know that when youre in the middle of it. But Mankiewicz did know he was onto something,enough so that he wanted credit, something in the film that Welles plans to take for himself (as part of their business agreement).

Oldman really nails the arrogance and self-loathing that drove Mankiewicz. He cant decide if life is agony or one big joke. Or maybe both.

Mank is all over the place. It'san obvious labor of love for Fincher, which may explain that. But its a good movie that is at least in part about the making of a great one. Watch it, and learn about Mankiewicz.

Then when youre done, watch (or rewatch) his masterpiece.

Reminiscing grandmother during days of coronavirus – Hurriyet Daily News

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 10:01 am

If there is something that is common to a big number of people right now is fear. Fear is always there, of course, and it is part of our existence. But usually, fear is accompanied by the object of fear. I am afraid of The more specific the object of our fear, the more we could rationalize and gather strength to combat it. The less specific it is, the more difficult it becomes for us to organize ourselves to fight it.

For example, my grandmother was very practical about it. She was always religious, attending mass when she should and when her neighbors would see that she did. As a widow for over forty years, with two living children of the three that she brought to the world, she had to care for her social integrity as well as fending for her family. So, for most of her life, her relationship with God, death, afterlife, and all the rest, was more let us say, practical. She attended all the rites she had to, lit candles for her lost third child who died at the age of five of meningitis, for her husband and her in-laws. She fasted throughout the 40 days of Lent before the Orthodox Easter and never missed weddings, baptisms and funerals.

When she stepped into her 80s, she became more philosophical. Having attended only the first three years in a primary school, her reading capacity was limited. Yet, like all women of her age in their 80s, they know the New Testament almost by heart and there is nothing more that they need. The rest of her intellectual needs was fulfilled by her enormous capacity to recite rhyming proverbs and fairy tales full of poetic imagery and philosophical perceptions. It was during that period, the last decade of her life when she took death seriously. I mean as a logical possibility. And she devised a daily method of dealing with it, a method which was connected with the time factor. So, she started a ritual of daily prayers of thanks that she would do twice a day - one after waking up every morning to thank God for she is alive, and the second before she went to bed for having lived one more day. Even at her very end, she kept at least part of this ritual alive although her brain had already abandoned her.

Why did I think of her? Obviously, because of our current relationship with the fear of COVID-19, a constant underlying fear of being the next victim of this creature, which looks like a surreal colorful sea urchin, and can choose any of us at any moment to put an end to our life. And it is not a real fear that we feel. It is also not a deep feeling of the unavoidable human fate like the one that my grandmother felt and tried to exorcize through her daily prayers of thanks.

The worst is that we are not even afraid of being the next victim; we are in that middle-of-the-road situation where we cannot organize our psychology. We have become desensitized to it but are sure of our self-importance and immortality in this world, unlike my grandmother, who thought that every extra day in her life was a gift.

Diabetes, Hypertension Linked to COVID-19-Related Neurological Complications – MD Magazine

Posted: November 30, 2020 at 9:59 am

This article was originally published on Diagnostic Imaging.

According to a new study, coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) positive patients who had hypertension and type 2 diabetes were more likely to experience the neurological complications, including bleeding in the brain and stroke, that come with the virus.

Based on CT and MRI images, investigators from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania determined that these chronic conditions could play a role in which patients are impacted by more than just the hallmark lung inflammation that comes with viral infection.

COVID-19s effects extend far beyond the chest, said lead study author Colbey W. Freeman, M.D., chief resident in the Penn Medicine radiology department. While complications in the brain are rare, they are an increasingly reported and potentially devastating consequence of COVID-19 infection.

Freemans team will present their findings during this years Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting.

In an effort to better understand how COVID-19 impacts the body, they examined head CT and/or MRI images for patients positive for the virus who presented to the University of Pennsylvania health system from January 2020-April 2020.

A total of 81 of the 1,357 COVID-19-positive patients who were admitted underwent a brain scan prompted by either altered mental state or focal neurological deficits, including speech and vision problems.

Based on the teams analysis, 18 patients slightly over 20% had findings that were considered critical, such as strokes, brain bleeds, or blocked blood vessels. And, of that group, at least half also had a pre-existing history of high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes.

COVID-19 is associated with neurological manifestations, and hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus are common in individuals who develop these manifestations, Freeman said. These populations may be at higher risk for neurologic complications and should be monitored closely.

The team also found that two-thirds of the patients who had critical findings were African American, indicating COVID-19 positive patients in that minority group should be monitored more closely. And, among the entire group of 18 with emergent findings, three died while in the hospital, the team said.

Although this study revealed a role for high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes in the neurological impact of the virus, investigators still do not know exactly what causes those complications.

The mechanisms could be multi-factorial, and the generally accepted belief is that infection-associated inflammation is responsible, they said. In this study, in particular, they reported blood markers for inflammation were high in patients who had critical results.

When your body is in an inflammatory state, it produces all these molecules called cytokines to help recruit the immune system to perform its function, Freeman said. Unfortunately, if cytokines are over-produced, the immune response actually starts doing damage.

Using data from this study, the team is also looking at the how frequently COVID-19-positive patients on extracorporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) a pump system that circulates and replenishes oxygen in the blood experience neurological complications. Many patients included in this study required ECMO during hospitalization.

Future plans include a larger prospective study to investigate delayed, long-term, and chronic neurologic manifestations that have not currently been identified, but that might manifest later.

The study, "Diabetes, Hypertension May Increase Risk of COVID-19 Brain Complications," was published online by RSNA.
