One of the key issues at the Paris climate summit, now in its second week, is where exactly emissions should be capped. Scientists have identified 2 degrees Celsius of warming as a dangerous tipping point for the planet, but many low-lying island countries are pushing for 1.5. In a video dispatch from the negotiations, model-advocate Cameron Russell goes backstage and asks some of the formidable women at the COP21 just what a difference a half de...

The owner of this hotel is incredibly nice. He goes the extra mile. Great price/value. I lived on this street for two years. It is an excellent location. I've stayed here two times. Once was a double on the 3rd floor, newly renovated and great. Second time I was on the 2nd floor, not newly renovated and less nice. But it sill seemed worthwhile. Breakfast included and as I say, really nice people.
