Hotel steers away from uncool early checkouts

first_imgThe Art Series hotel group has launched a new promotion, whereby guests who have paid for one night’s accommodation have the option to stay on and on, for free, until their room is needed.Launching ‘The Overstay Checkout’ offer from 16 December this year through to 13 January 2013, the group literally encourages guests to outstay their welcome at the group’s; The Olsen, The Cullen or The Blackman.Dubbing the 11.00am checkout as “uncool”, Art Series Hotels chief executive Will Deague said research found a traveller’s biggest pet peeve is the 11.00am checkout, an annoying requirement he hoped to rectify.“Our guests are always requesting a late checkout and we wanted to extend this offer over summer when Melbourne is at its best,” he explained. “The Overstay Checkout is a world first we are particularly proud of. “We know our guests will respond favaourably to this, if they do, we’ll roll it out again.” The promotion works on a ‘first in first served’ basis, the guest stays the paid night and requests a late checkout when they are due to leave.Then depending on the hotel capacity, they group will “endeavour” to accommodate the request and if guests do stay another night, they can try their luck again the next morning.  “There are no catches or restrictions, rooms are allocated on a first come first served basis,” Mr Deague added.  “They are potentially available regardless of whether you have booked directly with the hotel, though a third party website, or a travel agent.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: N.Jlast_img read more

Key Globes moments by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Jan 7, 2019 12:02 am PDTcenter_img It was a moment when everyone — absolutely everyone — expected to see an ebullient Lady Gaga climbing to the stage in her dramatic periwinkle gown. Instead, a visibly stunned Glenn Close got the Golden Globe. But her deeply personal speech about women’s need for fulfilment outside the family soon had the crowd on its feet, providing the emotional highpoint of the night.A year ago the Golden Globes were all about #MeToo and Time’s Up. A year earlier, it was all about politics. The 2019 Globes were much less overtly activist or political, but speeches by Close as well as co-host Sandra Oh and actress Regina King kept issues of equality and diversity alive in a more personal way.Oh, and of course there was the usual Globes craziness: “Bohemian Rhapsody” as best drama? The groundbreaking “Black Panther” snubbed? And nothing for Bradley Cooper — really?Some notable moments of the night, in no particular order:THE POWER OF NICETaking the stage for their opening monologue, co-hosts Oh and Andy Samberg had an explanation for why they’d been chosen: they were “the only two people left in Hollywood who haven’t gotten in trouble for saying something offensive.” Then they riffed on that by pretending to roast people by actually saying nice things. (“Bradley Cooper: You are hot!” ”Jeff Bridges, I wish you were my Dad!”) The bit didn’t get uproarious laughs but was pleasantly, well, pleasant.BUT … SATAN?Was this the first time Satan got a shout-out in an acceptance speech? If so, we have Christian Bale to thank. The Welsh actor was accepting his award for “Vice,” in which he made a stunning transformation into a chubby and bald Dick Cheney. After thanking castmates and director Adam McKay, he extended a “thank you to Satan for giving me inspiration for this role.” He also mused that he might try to play Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell next.A DECENT NIGHT FOR ‘OLD MEN’“Mary Poppins Returns” may have gone home empty-handed, but 93-year-old Dick Van Dyke, who has a wonderfully spry cameo in the film, got a big ovation when he came out with Emily Blunt, who plays Mary. And Michael Douglas, winning his Globe for “The Kominsky Method,” exulted that “alte kakers rule!,” using the Yiddish term for “old man.” The 74-year-old actor also dedicated his award to his 102-year-old father, Kirk Douglas.A TIME’S UP CHALLENGEA year after the Globes carpet was a sea of shimmering black, worn in solidarity with #MeToo and Time’s Up, colorful gowns were back — though some attendees wore ribbons saying “TIMESUPx2,” marking the second year of the gender equality movement. On the carpet was actress Alyssa Milano, who sent the tweet that made #MeToo go viral; she noted that in the past year, a “really wonderful sisterhood has formed.” It was actress Regina King of “If Beale Street Could Talk,” though, who made the most memorable reference to Time’s Up, resisting the orchestra’s efforts to play her off, and vowing that in the next two years, her producing projects would be staffed by 50 per cent women. She challenged those in other industries to do the same.OH TURNS EMOTIONALAfter an opener with Samberg full of zingers, Oh suddenly became emotional, explaining that she’d agreed to host the show — and overcome the fear — to celebrate the diversity of the nominated casts. “I wanted to be here to look out on this audience and witness this moment of change,” she said. “I am not fooling myself. Next year could be different. But right now this moment is real.” Soon after, Oh herself won best actress in a TV drama for “Killing Eve,” and thanked her parents, movingly, in Korean.UP CLOSE AND PERSONALWhen Close won best actress in a movie drama, she seemed as shocked as everyone else. But then the 71-year-old actress made a heartfelt connection between her role in “The Wife,” in which she plays a wife who sublimates her own ambitions to those of her husband in a stunning way, and her own life. “I am thinking of my mom who really sublimated herself to my father her whole life,” Close said. She added that women are expected to be nurturers, “but we have to find personal fulfilment. We have to follow our dreams. We have to say, I can do that and I should be allowed to do that.” The crowd rose to cheer.GAGA’S WINAt least Lady Gaga didn’t go home empty-handed: She won as a co-writer for best song, “Shallow,” which she performs with Cooper in “A Star is Born.” In her speech, she too referred to the challenges women face, not in the film industry but in music. “As a woman in music it is really hard to be taken seriously as musician and as a songwriter,” she said, adding that her co-writers “lifted me up, they supported me.” Gaga wrote the song with Mark Ronson, Anthony Rossomando and Andrew Wyatt.COLMAN’S ‘FAVOURITE’ THINGNot every speech had a serious tone to it. Olivia Colman, who won best actress in a musical or comedy for ‘The Favourite,’ in which she plays a comically troubled queen, told the crowd: “I would like to tell you how much this film meant to me, but I can’t think of it.” She also noted that one of her “favourite” things about making the film was that she “ate constantly through the film.”WHAT WAS THAT, DUDE?We’re not really sure what he was saying in his rambling speech accepting the Cecil B. DeMille Award — especially when he started talking about ships, and saying, “Tag, you’re it!” But hey, Jeff Bridges is best known as a stoner icon in “The Big Lebowski,” so it was sort of apt that he wasn’t so easy to follow. It was simply fun to experience his joy; it’s just too bad he wasn’t wearing a bathrobe. Harrison Ford, coming next, was even crustier than usual. “Nobody told me I had to follow Jeff Bridges,” he said.WOW, SHE KNOWS ME?It was a sweet red carpet moment as Elisabeth Moss, star of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” discovered that Taylor Swift was a fan. Ryan Seacrest presented her with a video from Swift, gushing about the show. “I can’t believe she even knows who I am!!” Moss exulted, showing that stars can sometimes be exactly like us.Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Presslast_img read more

reasons why the Parliamentary process in particular and the democratic apparatus in general has failed India’s citizens The clutch of essays written by experts in the Constitution and constitutional law will investigate the defects introduced by design that have enabled the degeneration of legislative functioning Series has been curated by Bangalore-based lawyer and tutor of democracy and active citizenship Malavika Prasad The Constitution of India envisages a bicameral legislative system at the federal level comprising the Lower and Upper Houses of Parliament Political scientists consider the Upper House (Rajya Sabha) to be ‘co-equal with restrictions’ with the Lower House (Lok Sabha) in terms of design power and function This implies that through institutional design the Rajya Sabha is at parity with the Lok Sabha except in case of financial legislation In other areas of legislation disagreement between the two houses is to be resolved through a joint sitting Despite this apparent parity the period following the early 2000s has witnessed a gradual decline in its role as a second legislative chamber of Parliament While two houses of Parliament are not necessarily a better thing in terms of legislative outcomes (there have been instances of countries abolishing their upper houses Portugal in 1926; Sweden in 1970 – both unitary in their nature of government) there are good reasons to retain the bicameral system of legislative organisation in countries which are federal in nature Representational image PTI The principle of legislative federalism which presupposes that the representatives from states are able to better frame laws which pertain to their interests finds expression in the Indian Constitution through the division of legislative power between the central and state governments An additional way of operationalising legislative federalism is through an Upper House of Parliament where states’ representatives can articulate their distinct interests and it is this function of the Rajya Sabha which has witnessed a gradual whittling away and requires reconsideration Quality stability and revision The reasons for adoption of the bicameral system fall broadly into two categories First there are functional arguments to indicate that members of the upper legislative chamber could as a result of the permanent nature of its tenure develop legislative expertise over time Writing in the Federalist Papers in 1788 Alexander Hamilton argued that an Upper House in the United States would serve as an anchor for legislation which was exposed to the changing compositions and interests represented in the Lower House which was characterised by a "mutability. arising from a rapid succession of new members" In a similar vein Montesquieu provided a justification for a second legislative chamber in European polities which would provide representation to a diverse range of interests including representation of the wealthier aristocracy as well as the members of a rapidly emerging commercial class in the wake of the Industrial Revolution Gradually although the power granted to second chambers began to wane in countries with unitary systems of government like France and Britain they retained influence This was primarily because they were seen as having a moderating influence upon the agenda of the Lower House with legislative expertise cultivated over time as well as its relative independence from the popularly elected chamber Therefore while the normative justifications advanced for the establishment and continuation of an Upper House have evolved over time certain advantages which result from its design and composition continue to hold salience In India the nature of the Rajya Sabha’s procedure of selection its eligibility criteria as well as the presence of nominated members indicate that its democratic legitimacy has indirect moorings and its purpose is distinct from the Lok Sabha which possesses direct democratic legitimacy One of the ways in an Upper House of Parliament can exercise its influence on legislative agenda in cases where there is a clear Lower House majority is through private member bills In the period between 1952-2001 there have been fourteen private member bills introduced in the Rajya Sabha which became law out of which five were in the first twelve years of the institution Recent sessions of the Rajya Sabha which have seen a large number of private member bills being introduced have rarely seen any of them being passed a matter discussed in greater detail here This has greatly impacted the ability of non-majority parties in the Rajya Sabha to influence the legislative agenda Inter-cameral engagement on legislation which shuttles between the upper and lower houses has also been minimal for reasons which have been explored in other pieces in this series but it increasingly clear that legislative activity has been minimal in the Upper House One of the ways in which the Australian Senate has ensured a multiplicity of partisan interests is through its system of electing senators through proportional representation where a party is able to secure representation by getting a certain minimum vote share This is in contrast to the first-past-the-post system (FPTP) used in India where the candidate with the maximum number of votes is declared the winner In FPTP electoral systems votes garnered by losing parties do not translate into even minimal representation in a legislative body Electoral systems with proportional voting have the ability to be more representative of the diversity of interest in a politybut are criticised for contributing to unstable fractious and inefficient legislative bodies The Australian political arena has seen parties with a governing majority in the House of Representatives frequently being required to satisfy divergent interests in order to carry forward their legislative agenda It is because of this that it is considered one of the strongest upper houses in the world with considerable leverage over the legislative agenda and budget bills Such multi-partisan consensus building can be operationalised through joint sittings of the upper and lower houses without a concomitant loss of the numeric supremacy which the Lok Sabha enjoys It is another matter that the last time this occurred was in 2002 due to the logjam caused by the Prevention of Terrorism Bill A differentiated whole The second category of argument advanced in favour of a second legislative chamber invoke federalism The nature of Indian federalism necessitates the representation of state interests at the federal level Federated countries are classified into two kinds by the political scientists Alfred Stepan Juan Linz and Yogendra Yadav Conceptually India is best described as a ‘state-nation’ in contrast with a ‘nation-state’ In ‘state-nation’ polities there is an ‘awareness of or attachment to multiple cultural traditions’ which does not preclude identification with a common state identity In ‘state-nations’ ethnocultural cleavages are salient recognised and democratically managed within a federal system which is usually asymmetric in nature India for example retains a constitutional arrangement in which states are at an unequal bargaining relationship with the central government as a matter of design Institutionally one of the ways in which this aspiration to democratic management finds expression is the creation of an Upper House of federal Parliament In India this is seen in the Rajya Sabha which was intended to advance the representation of states’ interests at the federal level The composition of the upper houses and their manner of election is also relevant – in the US and Australia where each state is permitted an equal number of senators In this way the ability of more populous states to exert a disproportionate influence on the activity of the House is curbed Of course this is not the only way in which an Upper House may be designed Such is the case with India where Karnataka and Uttar Pradesh which are of comparable spatial dimensions are permitted 12 and 31 representatives in the Rajya Sabha due to their divergent populations At a time when the inequitable nature of fiscal federalism in India is a matter of public discourse this idiosyncrasy of Indian institutional design is important to consider In the course of the Constituent Assembly Debates LM Singhvi perhaps moved by American nomenclature argued that the Council of States be called a ‘senate’ which would serve not as a revisionary chamber but would "represent the federal ethos in India" which would be a "grand inquest of the nation" and represent the "diversities of languages… of cultures… perceptions and diversities of interests" In this way it was seized with a representative nature which Shankar and Rodriguez describe as a ‘differentiated whole’ That the Rajya Sabha was intended as an aggregator of states’ interests is evident from its ability to pass laws on a state subject in certain cases its ability to create all-India services as well as its emergency powers when the Lok Sabha stands dissolved This however has become gradually eroded over time for a number of reasons one of which was a judicial pronouncement removing the domiciliary requirement in order to be a member of the Rajya Sabha in 2003 a move which has since been criticised Consequently a Rajya Sabha member is no longer required to have any ties with the state of which she is a member It is not difficult to see that this does disservice to its intended purpose It may be prudent to reconsider whether this move best serves the intended institutional interests of the Indian Upper House in representing the varied and distinct interests which states may have at a federal forum Conclusion Upper houses of parliament were historically designed to ensure a measure of temperance to the legislative agenda of popularly elected lower houses of parliament as well as to ensure the representation of a more diverse set of interests whether it be of a certain social class in unitary states like Britain or of states in the US India’s Upper House has over time whittled away its ability to exercise its legislative influence over policy issues as well as its ability to represent states’ interests at a federal level In doing so it has become an institution in search of a mission If we are to take India’s commitment to legislative federalism seriously its role and function in Indian democracy require a
