If you have a Facebook, Instagram, Yahoo Mail or Google account you should change your password immediately. All of these sites, amongst others, have been compromised due to an encryption flaw. For a full list, see the linked article.

A Look at Today’s Spa Consumer
Thursday, April 10, 2014
Register here: http://unex.uci.edu/services/events/#00744

The U.S. spa industry has grown at a fast pace over recent years with total revenues in the sector almost doubling between 2001 and 2011. Spas can be found across the country and appearing more and more in new venues such as airports and shopping malls. At the same time, the services available at spas have diversified to include targeted relief from injury and illness, aromatherapy, minor cosmetic surgery as well as more traditional treatments. As the spa model continues to evolve, it is important that the industry understands to what extent consumers are engaged in these changes and how they are responding to them. Equally, as the U.S. economy continues to recover from a recession, it is vital that those in the spa industry understand the necessary trade-offs customers are making when deciding whether to visit a spa or not. This webinar will look at the reasons why people go to spas, and what factors are leading them to make that decision. Join Ella Stimpson, Director of The Spa at Sea Island and Former Chairman of the International SPA Association, for this webinar on today’s spa consumer. This webinar will include pre-registration advisement for individuals interested in UC Irvine Extension’s Spa and Hospitality Management Certificate Program.
