Brazil | Child Prostitutes Will Soar When the World Cup Starts

Brazil | Child Prostitutes Will Soar When the World Cup Starts | Tourism : Collaterals | Scoop.it
As the 2014 World Cup nears, social workers anticipate the number of child sex workers will soar in Sao Paulo, but the Brazilian government hasn't done anything.
Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

The Brazilian government has pledged for the past decade that it will eradicate child prostitution. In 2001, 100,000 children were found to be working in the sex trade, according to estimates by Unicef. In 2012, that number had swelled to an estimated half a million, says a non-governmental organization, the National Forum for the Prevention of Child Labor.

Indonesia | Responsible tourism and responsible tourists

With the growing influence of Trip Advisor and other online portals, travelers can be an effective lobby for better services or identifying poor quality and value. But this development has had a far more important,and most probably unintended,consequence when considering the global and local environment. In relation to the negative impacts of tourism,it allows a person to be something of an armchair activist regarding the exposure of abuse, malpractice or plain greed-induced violations on the island and wider.

Sharks worth more for tourism than in soup: study

Sharks worth more for tourism than in soup: study | Tourism : Collaterals | Scoop.it

Sharks swimming free in the oceans may soon become more valuable as tourist attractions than when caught, sliced up and served in soup, a global study showed on Friday.

It urged better protection for the fish, from Australia to the Caribbean, to reduce catches of an estimated 38 million a year to meet demand for shark fin soup, mainly in China.

"We are hoping that people will recognize that sharks are not only valuable on the plate," lead authorAndres Cisneros-Montemayor of the University of British Columbia in Canada said.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

WASHINGTON: The world has serious concerns over fiscal crises, security crises and environmental crises including climate change. 

And then there are vacations. Yes, vacations – the getaways when we can put aside lofty concerns and remember what living is all about: seeing friends, hosting family reunions, discovering a new artist at a provincial festival and running barefoot on the beach with salt air stinging our cheeks.

Bye Bye Barcelona

Bye Bye Barcelona is a documentary about a city and it's relationship with tourism, about the difficult coexistence between Barcelona and it's people with tourism and tourists. It is a documentary that exposes through the thoughts of some of it's residents, the grave effects that mass tourism has in the city. You can watch this documentary from beginning to end, or you can watch it through it's chapters and at your own rhythm. It's sole purpose is to serve as counterweight to the much repeated idea that tourism is a win-win business. This documentary is about what we lose because of it.

Virgin Australia launches frequent flyer program for pets

Virgin Australia launches frequent flyer program for pets | Tourism : Collaterals | Scoop.it
VIRGIN Australia has launched a new frequent flyer program that is sure to have tongues - and tails - wagging.
The airline has become the first in Australia to let pets earn frequent flyer points.

Members of the airline's Velocity scheme can earn 300 points every time their dog or cat flies on the Virgin Australia domestic network.

Velocity Frequent Flyer Chief Executive Officer Neil Thompson said it's about time our four-legged friends reaped the benefits of their high-flying lifestyle.

"Virgin Australia flies almost 30,000 pets each year around Australia, and a large proportion are owned by Velocity members, so we know how important their companions are to them," Mr Thompson said.

"We're delighted to make their flying experience even more rewarding by unleashing Australia's first frequent flyer program for pets, giving our members another truly unique way to earn points.

"The program builds on the unique family benefits currently available to our members, such as the ability to pool points and status credits with family members.

"Turkey's medium-term goal for 2023 is to draw 50 million foreign visitors and $50 billion in revenues. To achieve this, revenue per tourist must increase to $1,000 from $800 now. However this is not possible by not selling drinks or restrictions on leisure." said Timur Bayindir, head of Turkey's TUROB tourism industry association.

Tourism:Collaterals's insight:

Chinese travelers, many of whom join tour groups, are frequently criticized for rude behavior. Deputy Premier Wang Yang earlier this month during the passage of a tourism law urged Chinese travelers to mind their manners.

"They make a racket in public places, carve words at scenic spots, cross the road when the light is red, spit, and do other uncivilized things," Wang was quoted as saying. "This is detrimental to the image of the country's people and leaves a bad impression."
