"The video explains about Spain and Gibraltar and how they have feuded back and forth with one another and their borders for some time now. Gibraltar has made a articfical reef to mess with the Spainish fisherman and SPain has made travel to Gibraltar nearly impossible and dreadfully long for tourists. Spain understands how essential tourism is to their economy. Until they are able to come to an agreement thei matter is only going to intenisfy more and worsen."

Elizabeth Bitgood's curator insight, March 3, 2014 10:55 AM

I was unaware that the UK owned this part of Gibraltar.  It seems like a throwback to the UK’s naval policies of the past that they would still to control this point of entry into the Mediterranean.  It will be interesting to see how this will be resolved.  As it is a dispute between two countries that are both part of the EU.

Why Customers Are Naturally Negative

Why Customers Are Naturally Negative | Travel and Tourism | Scoop.it

According to Jeff Toister and research, customers are negatively biased. This has to do with the limbic system, the part of the brain that supports functions like emotionlong-term memory, and olfaction.


Have you ever become impatient when the lineup you chose turns out to move more slowly than the next one? Has a customer service representative said something to that you didn't like? Those are the examples that come to mind to explain that bias. 


In social media, the most viral content does not always stem from the most-heartwarming stories. Human beings are more likely to remember the bad than the good. 


People who watched G.I. Joe as a kid might remember that every episode included a short PSA that ended with the catch phrase, “Knowing is half the battle.” 


That certainly holds true here. Understanding your customers’ natural negativity bias can lead you to a few solutions.


A good article for online and offline businesses!

Placeness

Placeness | Travel and Tourism | Scoop.it
I understand placeness to mean everything that has to do with place, so this website is intended to be a sort of place encyclopedia. I hope that it will in due course provide an overview of the myriad ideas and experiences of place and places. Places are directly experienced aspects of the world and are full with diverse meanings, objects, and ongoing activities.
