Let's just say some people's feet and mouth got really close to one another. Fortunately, we have an actor that has decided to rise above it all.

Amazing how business can lobby and expect a right to earn an income and no one bats an eye lid but suggest that individuals also deserve the right to earn a living and see a living wage and all hell will break out. I dont accept that advertising is an acceptable model of income generation I believe it is a lazy implementation of an archaic model defending its right to exist rather than innovate.

But schools have existed before mobile phones so the question should be put; if schools had always had mobile phones would research show that schools which banned them did worse academically ? or is this too academic a question to answer ?
Effect of ban on phones adds up to equivalent of extra week of classes over a pupil’s school year

Professional salesmen know that sales funnels are the life and death of your sales career; without an active funnel you are basically skeet shouting your sales and have little hope of planning your growth. Its all very well having expensive marketing projects and high internet traffic but if you are not selling and closing business then you are not creating cashflow just buzz and buzz doesnt pay bills ; cash does.

To be honest this is the hotel that makes a Disney stay feel like a Disney holiday. It helps that the staff are very French in their approach to service in a hotel.
