Farmrich Salinas exemplifies Californias housing struggles

first_imgSALINAS, Calif. – Middle-school English teacher Maryam Powers doesn’t take vacations. To earn additional money, she picks up an extra period of teaching when she can and mentors new hires. But to afford the mortgage on a $330,000 three-bedroom home she purchased in Salinas in 2015, Powers still must rent out the master bedroom for $800 a month.“I work, work, work, work, work. I take every extra pay job I can do, and I never quite get ahead,” said Powers, who shares the home with her boyfriend and their two young children.Powers’ family is reflective of many in this California city just inland from the tourism-rich Monterey Peninsula and an hour’s drive south of Silicon Valley. It’s surrounded by farmland that produces most of the world’s lettuce and inspired hometown author John Steinbeck’s “The Grapes of Wrath.”Salinas — known as “Salad Bowl of the World” — is one of America’s least affordable places to live, exemplifying a housing crisis that plagues California’s rural and urban areas alike. Salinas families earn a median income of $69,000, while the region’s 90,000 farmworkers bring in far less. They face a median home price of nearly $550,000 and two-bedroom apartments costing roughly $1,800 a month, according to Zillow.Frustration is mounting over expensive housing, and some Californians hope a November ballot measure on rent control provides relief.California politicians can’t ignore the issue as they try to balance people’s needs in a state that’s home to extreme riches and the world’s fifth-largest economy but also places like Salinas, where multiple generations pack single-family homes, people turn backyard sheds into illegal bedrooms and families worry over how to pay their bills.Residents know rent control isn’t the best long-term solution — economists widely agree it cuts down on building — but they’re eager to help their struggling neighbours.“Our rents are too high. Something needs to be done,” said Noelia Verwulf, a Salinas resident who helped form a group called Viviendas Para Todx or “Housing for All” that’s holding community forums, registering people to vote and advocating for housing-related ballot measures. “It’s a temporary fix.”Four of the 11 ballot measures facing California voters, including rent control, relate to housing. One would authorize $4 billion in bonds for affordable housing.The Salinas metro area is one of seven in California that ranks in the top 10 least affordable in the U.S., according to an analysis of 2016 census data by Harvard’s Joint Center for Housing Studies. Sprawling Los Angeles, wealthy Santa Barbara and rural Redding also make the list, highlighting the near inescapability of the crisis.The federal government considers housing unaffordable if it eats up more than a third of a family’s income. More than half of California renters and nearly a third of homeowners spend that much or more.Salinas residents call the divide between the inland city of 157,000 and wealthier coastal cities such as Monterey the “lettuce curtain.” More than 70 per cent of Salinas is Hispanic or Latino, according to census data, and about 80 per cent of the region’s farmworkers live there year-round.To save money, Powers, 39, and her boyfriend, Jean-Paul Varagnat, rented out the master bedroom of someone else’s home — an arrangement she repeated at her own house to afford her $2,300 monthly mortgage.Varagnat watches their 2- and 3-year-old daughters to avoid $1,000 in monthly child-care costs and takes classes at night toward an engineering degree.“I knew I was never going to be wealthy, but I didn’t think it was going to be quite this difficult,” Powers said.There are mixed reactions in Salinas to Proposition 10, the ballot measure that would scrap a law restricting rent control on single-family homes and properties built after 1995 and open the door for new local rules about how much landlords can increase rents.Democrat Anna Caballero, who represents Salinas in the state Assembly, opposes the measure but said she understands why the city’s angry residents support it.It feels like “the only thing you can do to get the attention of people who own rental housing units is to do something drastic,” she said. “It’s the wrong solution, but I understand why they grabbed it because it looks like a solution.”Caballero is running for the state Senate this November in the top swing district, a seat now held by a Republican who’s reached term limits. If Caballero wins, Democrats could get back a supermajority that gives them power to raise taxes without Republican support and furthers the party’s grip on power in California.Interviews with roughly two dozen Salinas residents reveal a general belief that local, state and national politicians lack a grip on the reality of the region’s housing crisis. Few said it would motivate them to vote for a different party, instead calling it one of many issues that revealed a need for fresh voices.Verwulf’s 20-year-old daughter, Victoria, said housing — not the midterm election — drove her to activism.“We don’t get to go to school and get involved in community organizing and activism because it’s interesting and it’s trendy,” she said. “We have to do it now to survive because this is our life. This is our reality.”Carissa Purnell, director of the Alisal Family Resource Center that helps Salinas’ low-income and farmworker families navigate housing struggles, say children sleep on crates that their parents use to pick strawberries because they don’t have beds.“The things that are happening in our families are all stemming from these housing situations that we’ve created for each other, and the fact that no one is calling it out is frustrating,” Purnell said.Purnell’s centre is in east Salinas, a neighbourhood of tightly packed, ranch-style homes. Cars overflow driveways and spread onto lawns, while garages brim with boxes that can’t fit in cramped living areas.Across town, three generations and 15 members of the Nunez family are jammed into a four-bedroom home. The patriarch, Jose Nunez, worked two jobs to afford the property in the 1980s.Nunez and his wife share the home with three of their six children and their spouses and seven grandchildren. Each family has a bedroom.Nunez didn’t expect his children to be back at home but wouldn’t turn them away when two lost their houses to foreclosure. His son Miguel now is struggling to find an affordable house for his family that won’t require them to live paycheque to paycheque or restrict themselves from “outings, from wants from the baby, from vacations,” Miguel’s wife, Sasha, said.“You get comfortable and you’re happy here,” she said one evening while feeding their nearly 2-year-old son in the noisy, bustling kitchen. “But there’s nothing like having your own place.”One of Nunez’s daughters, Araceli, also lives there with her husband and three children while they expand their small house down the street to fit their growing family. Buying a bigger home is too expensive, she said.So her family of five shares a bedroom stuffed with two queen beds, a television and makeshift dressers for clothes that won’t fit in the closet. A wooden chest for her infant son’s clothes sits in the hallway.Salinas soon hopes to build more than 10,000 homes on the northeast edge of town now covered by fields. Repurposing farmland, which abuts many neighbourhoods, is seen as the best option for finding new space even as it takes away part of the city’s lifeblood.Still, some are concerned it won’t be enough. A plan to bring commuter rail from the heart of Silicon Valley into Salinas could make the new homes a cheaper alternative for tech workers priced out of neighbourhoods closer to work.“We have an insatiable need for housing,” City Councilman Scott Davis said. “No matter how much housing we build, we’ll never have enough.”___This report is part of a series on how California’s struggles with soaring housing costs, job displacement and a divide over liberal policies are affecting the November election.

UN refugee agency condemns murder of Nigerian man in Ukraine

3 June 2008The United Nations refugee agency has condemned the murder of a Nigerian man in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, in the latest of a series of attacks against foreigners in the country. The victim was found on the evening of 29 May in the Solomenskiy district of the city suffering numerous knife wounds. Police said the motive for the fatal attack was unknown. The man had approached the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) in Kyiv two years ago, seeking legal assistance. UNHCR, along with some 30 other groups belonging to the Diversity Initiative human rights coalition in the country, have urged Ukrainian authorities to conduct a thorough investigation of the killing, including the possibility it was racially motivated. The group asked to be kept informed of the outcome of the investigation. Over the past two years, human rights groups have reported increasing violent attacks on foreigners and non-Ukrainians in Kyiv and elsewhere in the country. UNHCR says it has repeatedly expressed concern over unprovoked attacks, beatings and verbal abuse aimed at asylum-seekers, refugees, migrants, foreigners and minorities in Ukraine. According to anecdotal evidence collected by the Diversity Initiative from victims, media sources and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), there have been at least 40 such attacks so far in 2008, including four murders. In January, a 19-year old asylum-seeker from the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) was found stabbed to death and in March a 39-year old Sierra Leonean asylum-seeker was also killed after a stabbing. At the beginning of this year, 2,277 refugees were living in Ukraine. From 2002 to 2007, 285 people were granted refugee status. Last year 33 refugees were recognized, compared to 65 in 2006 and 49 in 2005. read more

Visual Arts students share creative Modus Operandi in new exhibition

Under the mentorship of instructor Donna Akrey, Brock Visual Arts students spent the last semester working in the studio to hone their craft and develop their own unique artistic identities.The end result, and the process they underwent to get there, will be on display in their final exhibition, Modus Operandi, on view at the Niagara Artist Centre (NAC) from Saturday, April 13 to Wednesday, April 24.The contemporary art show features the work of students in the 3M90 Advanced Art Practices course at the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts (MIWSFPA).Brock Visual Arts student Zach White works away at the pieces he will be showing as part of Modus Operandi, a contemporary art show at the Niagara Artists Centre beginning Saturday, April 13.The artists tackle themes of environment, sexuality, mental health, identity and joy through a wide range of methods and materials such as wood, paper, installation, photography, zines, sculptured wire and clay, audio and research into optics via mirrors, virtual reality, video and performative work.Artist Lindsay Allen said she was “inspired by seeing everyone’s work together.”“Modus Operandi is a collection of hard work and progress made throughout the year, and each artist worked towards having a solid grasp on their subject matter and materials,” she added.  “It required a lot of research and experimentation, but I think we all learned a lot and have become better artists through this experience.”The course is structured, so the artists are given the autonomy to develop a mature and individual body of work with the end goal of producing a final exhibition for the public.For some students, such as Angelina Turner, this is the first time they have exhibited their work outside of the MIWSFPA.“I am very excited to get my work out there and to further my career,” she said.Fellow artist Connor Playfair agreed, adding the experience gives students a “real taste of having a professional art show.”“We are involved in every step of the planning and execution process and are making work that is without guidelines or restrictions using the skills that we have developed over our past four years at Brock,” he said.In addition to Allen, Turner and Playfair, artists featured in the exhibition include: Chelsea Dietrich, Amy Doan, Renz Baluyot, Alona Nyforovska, Lillianna Pagliaro, Curt Richard, Zach White and Evan Wiens.Modus Operandi will run from Saturday, April 13 to Wednesday, April 24 at the Niagara Artists Centre, 354 St. Paul St. in St. Catharines.There will be an opening reception Saturday, April 13 from 7 to 9 p.m.Visit the Niagara Artists Centre website for additional gallery hours.Eleven visual artists in Brock’s 3M90 Advanced Art Practices course will have their work on view at a show titled Modus Operandi, hosted at the Niagara Artists Centre in St. Catharines beginning Saturday, April 13. read more

ASA Applauds Timely WhiteWave Foods Donation to World Soy Foundation

first_imgVitaGoat Will Support School Children and Sustainable Development in GhanaThe American Soybean Association (ASA) announced today, World Food Day, that WhiteWave Foods is expanding its commitment to a project that provides nutritious meals to school children in Ghana, as well as supports sustainable economic development in the West African country. WhiteWave Foods is donating $75,000 over the next three years to ASA’s World Soy Foundation (WSF) to increase its partnership with the Adventist Development and Relief Agency (ADRA).”The new funding will allow the World Soy Foundation to purchase, transport and install a ‘VitaGoat’ soymilk processing machine, as well as train operators and provide a year’s worth of soybeans,” said ASA Board member Scott Fritz, a soybean farmer from Winamac, Ind., and WSF Board member. “As a result, the VitaGoat will produce enough soymilk to feed a school of 280 children for at least one school year and have sufficient product to sell to the community as a sustainable small enterprise.”The machine will be placed in a rural community in the northern region of Ghana where local farmers grow soybeans.WhiteWave Foods first contributed to the WSF when the foundation was created by the ASA and other soybean grower organizations in late 2006. That initial support of $20,000 aided ADRA’s school feeding in Ghana, which the WSF leveraged through contributions from Iowa soybean farmers.”WhiteWave is once again walking the talk of sustainability in the campaign against global hunger,” said WSF Executive Director Jim Hershey. “This effort will encourage children to attend school where they can receive a nutritious meal while it advances local food production and economic opportunity.”This contribution by WhiteWave Foods, headquartered in Broomfield, Colo., is particularly timely, given recent reports of increased hunger around the world. In September, the Food and Agriculture Organization revised the official number of hungry people worldwide up to 923 million, and projects that the number of urgently hungry could climb to more than a billion next year.”Our partnership has allowed us to strengthen our relationship with the community, local farmers, the national and the local government,” said Dr. William Brown, Country Director for ADRA Ghana. “We look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with the World Soy Foundation in the future, enabling us to make an even greater impact throughout the entire nation.”Ghana, a democratic country, has made economic progress, yet 45 percent of the population still lives on less than $1 a day, according to the United Nations. In some parts of the country, including the north, nearly half of the children are stunted because of under-nutrition.World Food Day is commemorated around the globe every year on Oct. 16, by groups that recognize the need to increase awareness and year-round action to alleviate hunger.The World Soy Foundation, a 501(c)(3) organization managed by the American Soybean Association, works collaboratively with humanitarian organizations, corporations, public and private foundations, international organizations, U.S. and international governments, and individuals to deliver soy protein and nutrition education to people in developing nations. Projects sponsored by the WSF include complementary foods for children 6-36 months, school feeding programs and nutrition assessment and research services. More information is available at read more

Artificial intelligence firm OpenAI wins massive backing of 1 billion for research

first_imgGlobal technology stalwarts, Infosys, Amazon Web Services and YC Research among others on Saturday announced committing $1 billion for non-profit artificial intelligence (AI) research company OpenAI to advance digital intelligence for humanity’s maximum benefit.With Y Combinator’s Sam Altman and Tesla Motors’ polymath Elon Musk as co-chairs and Pieter Abbeel, Yoshua Bengio, Alan Kay, Sergey Levine, and Infosys CEO Vishal Sikka as advisors, OpenAI has no financial obligations and pressures to generate profits.”Since our research is free from financial obligations, we can better focus on a positive human impact. We believe AI should be an extension of individual human wills and, in the spirit of liberty, as broadly and evenly distributed as is possible safely,” said OpenAI in a blogpost.OpenAI aims to build on recent advances in AI research to emerge with the next set of breakthroughs in the short-term while focus on deep learning research is its goal in the foreseeable future.”In deep learning, rather than hand-code a new algorithm for each problem, you design architectures that can twist themselves into a wide range of algorithms based on the data you feed them,” it said in the blogpost.According to OpenAI, deep learning yielded great results in pattern recognition problems, machine translation and speech recognition.Highlighting that AI today is at an impressive state but with narrow capabilities, it said it feels, in the extreme case, AI can match human performance virtually on every intellectual task.However, there is a word of caution too at the possible misuse of this poweful technology.”It’s hard to fathom how much human-level AI could benefit society, and it’s equally hard to imagine how much it could damage society if built or used incorrectly,” it said in the post.One of the most important goals of OpenAI is to make ready a leading AI research institution to prioritise good outcomes by the time by human-level AI emerges.The organization aims to freely collaborate with institutions and companies to research and deploy new technologies.Openly sharing its research in the form of papers, blog posts, code, open-source projects, talks and tutorials with the wider world is its vision.OpenAI has Ilya Sutskever, a decorated machine learning expert, as its research director and former Stripe CTO Greg Brockman for CTO.It counts world class scientists and research engineers Trevor Blackwell, Vicki Cheung, Andrej Karpathy, Durk Kingma, John Schulman, Pamela Vagata and Wojciech Zaremba as its founding members.OpenAI expects to spend only a tiny fraction of its $1 billion donation in the next few years.last_img read more

Testing Hawking radiation in laboratory black hole analogues

Observation of Stimulated Hawking Radiation in an Optical Analogue, Physical Review Letters (2019). DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.122.010404 “Imagine, like in Einstein’s gedanken experiments, light chasing after another pulse of light,” Leonhardt explained. “Suppose that all the light travels inside an optical fiber. In the fiber glass, the pulse changes the speed of the light chasing it a little, such that the light cannot overtake the pulse. It experiences a white-hole horizon; a place it cannot enter. The front of the pulse acts like the exact opposite: a black-hole horizon, a place the light cannot leave. This is the idea in a nutshell.” Leonhardt and his colleagues published and demonstrated this idea in 2008. Subsequently, they tried to use it to demonstrate Hawking radiation.Hawking radiation has never been directly observed in space, as this is not currently feasible. However, it can be demonstrated in laboratory environments, for instance, using Bose-Einstein condensates, water waves, polaritons or light. In the past, several researchers tried to test Hawking radiation in the lab using these techniques, yet most of their studies were, in fact, problematic and have thus been disputed. Back in 1974, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking amazed the physics world with his theory of Hawking radiation, which suggested that rather than being black, black holes should glow slightly due to quantum effects near the black hole’s event horizon. According to Hawking’s theory, the strong gravitational field around a black hole can affect the production of matching pairs of particles and anti-particles.Should these particles be created just outside the event horizon, the positive member of this pair of particles could escape, resulting in an observed thermal radiation emitting from the black hole. This radiation, which was later termed Hawking radiation, would hence consist of photons, neutrinos and other subatomic particles. The theory of Hawking radiation was among the first to combine concepts from quantum mechanics with Albert Einstein’s theory of General Relativity. “I learned General Relativity in 1997 by lecturing a course, not by taking a course,” Ulf Leonhardt, one of the researchers who carried out the recent study, told “This was a rather stressful experience where I was just a few weeks ahead of the students, but I really got to know General Relativity and fell in love with it. Fittingly, this also happened in Ulm, Einstein’s birthplace. Since then, I have been looking for connections between my field of research, quantum optics and General Relativity. My main goal is to demystify General Relativity. If, as I and others have shown, ordinary optical materials like glass act like curved spaces, then the curved space-time of General Relativity becomes something tangible, without losing its charm.” In collaboration with his first Ph.D. student Paul Piwnicki, Leonhardt put together some initial ideas of how to create optical black holes, which were published in 1999 and 2000. In 2004, he finally achieved a method that actually worked, which is the one used in his recent study. Journal information: Physical Review Letters The parabolic mirror in the background focuses dark-red light into the fibre that shines bright-blue on the other end. A tiny bit of the bright light is Hawking radiation, which the researchers extracted and measured. Credit: Drori et al. Citation: Testing Hawking radiation in laboratory black hole analogues (2019, January 25) retrieved 18 August 2019 from For instance, some past findings obtained with intense light pulses in optical media turned out to be inconsistent with theory. Rather than observing Hawking radiation made by horizons, as the authors themselves found out later, they had, in fact, observed horizon-less radiation created by their light pulses, as they exceeded the phase velocity of light for other frequencies. Other studies attempting to observe Hawking radiation on water waves and in Bose-Einstein condensates also turned out to be problematic. Discussing the outcomes of these studies with Physics World, Leonhardt wrote, “I greatly admire the heroism of the people doing them, and their technical skills and expertise, but this is a difficult subject.” He also wrote: “Horizons are perfect traps; it is easy to get trapped behind them without noticing, and this applies to horizon research, as well. We learn and become experts according to the classic definition: An expert is someone who has made all possible mistakes (and learned from them).” As proven by previous efforts, observing Hawking radiation in the lab is a highly challenging task. The study carried out by Leonhardt and his colleagues could be the first valid demonstration of Hawking radiation in optics. “Black holes are surrounded by their event horizons,” Leonhardt explained. “The horizon marks the border where light can no longer escape. Hawking predicted that at the horizon light quanta—photons—are created. One photon appears outside the horizon and is able to get away, while its partner appears on the inside and falls into the black hole. According to quantum mechanics, particles are associated with waves. The photon on the outside belongs to a wave that oscillates with positive frequency, the wave of its partner on the inside oscillates with a negative frequency.”In their study, Leonhardt and his colleagues made light out of positive and negative frequencies. Their positive-frequency light was infrared, while the negative-frequency one was ultraviolet. The researchers detected both of them and then compared them with Hawking’s theory.The tiny bit of ultraviolet light that they managed to detect using sensitive equipment is the first clear sign of stimulated Hawking radiation in optics. This radiation is referred to as ‘stimulated’ because it is stimulated by the probe light that the researchers sent in to chase the pulses. “Our most important finding, perhaps, is that black holes are not something out of the ordinary, but that they closely resemble what light pulses do to ordinary light in fibers,” Leonhardt said. “Demonstrating subtle quantum phenomena like Hawking radiation is not easy. It takes extremely short pulses, extraordinary fibers, sensitive equipment and, last but not least, the hard work of dedicated students. But even Hawking radiation is something one can actually understand.”The study carried out by Leonhardt and his colleagues is an important contribution to the physics field, as it provides the first laboratory demonstration of Hawking radiation in optics. The researchers also found the analogy to event horizons to be remarkably robust, despite pushing the optics to the extreme, which increased their confidence in the validity of their theories. “We now need to improve our setup to get ready for the next big challenge: the observation of spontaneous Hawking radiation,” Leonhardt said. “In this case, the radiation is not stimulated anymore, except by the inevitable fluctuations of the quantum vacuum. Our next goals are steps that improve the apparatus and test various aspects of stimulated Hawking radiation, before going all the way to spontaneous Hawking radiation.” , Physics Worldcenter_img Explore further © 2019 Science X Network This image shows an electron-microscope picture of the interior of one of the researchers’ fibres.

Using this 50-gene set, oncologists can potentially predict the most effective therapy for each breast tumor type and thereby personalize breast cancer treatment for all patients.”Unlike a widely used genomic test that applies only to lymph-node negative, estrogen-receptor positive breast cancer, this new genomic test is broadly applicable for all women diagnosed with breast cancer,” says breast cancer specialist Matthew Ellis, M.D., Ph.D., a member of the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University.The study was reported Feb. 9, 2009, through advance online publication in the Journal of Clinical Oncology. Ellis’ collaborators include co-authors Charles Perou, Ph.D., associate professor of genetics and pathology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, Philip S. Bernard, M.D., assistant professor of pathology and medical director of the molecular pathology laboratory at the University of Utah Huntsman Cancer Institute, and Torsten Nielsen, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of British Columbia.Breast cancer results from genetic abnormalities in breast tissue, but not all breast cancers have identical genetic alterations. Ellis and his colleagues analyzed the gene activity of more than 1,000 breast tumors to identify and validate the genetic signature of each of the four types of breast cancer. Although the cancer types are distinguished by thousands of genetic differences, the researchers were able to narrow the list down to a set of 50 of these genes that could uniquely identify each type.These tumor types have been previously defined and are known as luminal A, luminal B, HER2-enriched and basal-like. The latter three types are generally considered types with a poor prognosis. Another genomic test commonly used in clinical practice, OncotypeDX, does not identify all four tumor types.”Our test is the first to incorporate a molecular profile for the basal-like type breast cancers,” says Ellis, professor of medicine in the Division of Medical Oncology at Washington University School of Medicine. “That’s important because these breast cancers are arguably the most aggressive yet the most sensitive to chemotherapy. By identifying them we can ensure they are treated adequately.”Breast cancer experts typically also identify a fifth breast cancer type known as normal-like. The 50-gene set also recognizes the normal-like type. But the researchers found that instead of being a fifth type of breast cancer, the normal-like classification is an indicator that a sample contains insufficient tumor cells to make a molecular diagnosis and that a new sample needs to be taken.In this study, the researchers also compared the activity of the 50-gene set to how well 133 breast cancer patients responded to standard chemotherapy. They found that their genetic test was highly sensitive and very predictive for chemotherapy response. The test was more predictive than typically used clinical molecular markers such as estrogen receptor status, progesterone receptor status or HER2 gene expression status.They found that luminal A was not sensitive to the chemotherapy, suggesting that patients with this good-prognosis type can forgo chemotherapy in favor of hormone-based therapy. They showed that among the poor-prognosis tumor types, basal-like breast cancer was the most sensitive to the chemotherapy and luminal B the least.”Luminal B tumors are a very poor prognosis group, and none of the current conventional therapies are particularly effective against it,” Ellis says. “The ability to identify luminal B tumors accurately makes it possible to develop better therapies for this type.”Ellis says more than 20 drugs are available to treat breast cancer. The researchers are now investigating how each tumor type responds to these drugs to help determine the best treatment for each. Their 50-gene set can be assayed in preserved tumor samples left over from standard diagnostic procedures, so the group plans to study tumor samples from breast cancer cases going back a decade or more. Since the patients in these cases have already been treated, the researchers can relatively quickly discover how well various therapies worked for each breast cancer type.The genomic test technology is patented and will be distributed through University Genomics, a company co-owned by Washington University, the University of Utah and the University of North Carolina. This year University Genomics is working with Associated Regional and University Pathologists Inc., a reference laboratory at the University of Utah, to provide a site where the 50-gene test will be available. Ellis is one of the inventors of the test and holds patents for the technology described in this news release.Source: Gwen Ericson Parker JS, Mullins M, Cheang MCU, Leung S, Voduc D, Vickery T, Davies S, Fauron C, He X, Hu Z, Quackenbush JF, Stijleman IJ, Palazzo J, Marron JS, Nobel AB, Mardis E, Nielsen TO, Ellis MJ, Perou CM, Bernard PS.

Dubais obsession with size answers demand DTCM

first_imgIn Dubai, size really does matter – if only to meet strong demand growth said Dubai’s Department of Tourism and Commerce Marketing (DTCM) yesterday.Speaking to buyers before the official opening of this year’s Arabian Travel Market, DTCM deputy director Abdullah Bin Suwaidan warned that any discussion of Dubai’s future is awash with the words ‘biggest’ and ‘largest’.“But behind these words are the numbers – each year growth goes up,” Mr Bin Suwaidan said. “In Dubai, we don’t have low season; we have high season and very high season.”According to Mr Bin Suwaidan, the success of Dubai rests in its reputation as a destination with strong service, safety and infrastructure.“There’s no ‘impossible’ in this city,” he said.Mr Bin Suwaidan told buyers the success enjoyed by today’s Dubai is the result of the foresight of yesteryear.“What we’re seeing today was planned 50 to 60 years ago.”Likewise, said Mr Bin Suwaidan, Dubai’s current visions of its future will serve Dubai 50 years from now.“The challenge is making the reality out of the vision.”Despite Dubai’s 573 hotels and hotel apartments, equating to 70,955 rooms, there seemed little question from ATM buyers of Dubai’s seemingly inevitable growth, questions asked of Mr Bin Suwaidan more concerned with Dubai’s ability to cope with such demand.The 2011 Arabian Travel Market is being held in Dubai over this week.Stay tuned to e-Travel Blackboard who are on location in Dubai.
