A week of star treatment is right on brand for Planet Hollywood

first_img By: Tim Johnson A week of star treatment is right on brand for Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa Rica PAPAGAYO — I’ll admit it – I’m not quite ready for my close-up. Having landed in Liberia less than an hour ago, I stash my suitcase with the bell staff and, passport in hand, ready for check-in, stride through the front doors of the resort – and, evidently, onto the red carpet. Like, a real, actual red carpet.Despite my less-than-celebrity-grade ensemble – well-worn cargo shorts and a loose-fitting golf shirt – photographers swarm, grabbing some shots as, a little stunned, I mug, just for a moment, the first flash of my week of star treatment, just ahead.I’m at Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Costa Rica, a brand new (October 2018) property that sits at the base of the Guanacaste Peninsula on the Pacific coast. All-inclusive and all-suite, with 294 keys, the resort is part of Blue Diamond Resorts, Sunwing Travel Group’s resort division, and the first of a series of Planet Hollywood properties planned for other sun destinations. The focus here: make sure guests have the opportunity to ‘Vacation Like a Star.’PH Spa Pool at Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa RicaI’ve been awarded STAR Class, a cut-above concierge level of service that guests can purchase, and after proceeding past the Green Room – an exclusive lounge just off the main lobby with snacks, drinks, and private check-in/check-out services – I meet my ‘agent’, Felipe.Having an agent is one of the perks, and he shows me to my junior suite which is snuggled, like the rest of the resort, into a verdant hillside, showing me the room features – the Phabulous bed with its hand-crafted custom mattress, the ceiling-mounted rain shower, the balcony with a sweeping ocean view. All room classes also include the above, plus 24-hour room service, a daily-refreshed minibar, and PH Spa bath amenities.Junior Suite Ocean ViewAnd then, it’s time for the rider – just like a rock star. Rather than requesting that Felipe sort my M&Ms by colour or place a chilled bottle of Crystal by my bedside every night, I make a couple simple requests – a bottle of whiskey (one bottle is included in-room for STARs) and a bucket of ice. And while my rider may not run long, Felipe’s services prove invaluable throughout the week — we connect on WhatsApp, and requests that would have required multiple calls (dinner reservations, small maintenance issues) are resolved with a simple text.More news:  Onex paying big to get WestJet and that will send airfares soaring, says CWTMy STAR Class status also gives me access to an exclusive pool and bar with upgraded beverages, and I make it a nightly ritual to finish each day by taking a dip then stretching out on a lounger there, a tumbler filled with Tallisker in hand as the long, tropical twilight stretches out.Pool loungers at Planet Hollywood Beach Resort Costa RicaThe Hollywood-glam theme extends throughout the property. The brand owns thousands of pieces of movie memorabilia, and public spaces are adorned with costumes and other items you’ll recognize – a tuxedo worn by Daniel Craig as James Bond, whole displays devoted to Karate Kid, and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.Cabanas feature private plunge pools and a complimentary bottle of bubbles. And shows and events tend toward the glam, too – foam parties in the main pool, neon-bright ribbon dancers in the evening, as well as white parties down at the beach. Even the kids’ club has a full rack of costumes, and children can spend the week writing, directing and acting in their own little movie.Stars Kids ClubThe entertainment theme extends to the dining, too – Guy Fieri, the host of Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, has a burger joint by the pool, one of six a la carte restaurants on property, from the Sunset Strip Steakhouse to the So Cal Gourmet Food Emporium. The most entertaining, by far, however, is East Sushi and Teppanyaki Bar, where, at individual stations surrounded by a small number of seats, Japanese-trained chefs juggle their knives and put on a show before slicing and dicing your dinner.Costa Rica is an ideal destination to tour around – and the resort encourages guests to get out and explore through Sunwing Experiences and PH Experiences, their curated list of local adventures, of which I take full advantage.More news:  Transat calls Groupe Mach’s latest offer “highly abusive, coercive and misleading”On one excursion, joining with a group, we visit the flanks of the Miravalles Volcano, and en route our guide, Hoel, explains the essentially magmatic nature of his country. “Costa Rica is divided into two by volcanoes – they form the Continental Divide,” he observes. “We have 200 volcanoes, and five of them are currently active.”We arrive to find plenty of activity, first hiking over gushing waterfalls on swinging suspension bridges, then winding through the dense canopy past orchids, plumeria, strange, strangling ficus.And then we head to the mud pots, popping almost comically, as sulphurous steam rises from deep inside the earth. We slather on the greyish mud, said to have healing powers, and then wash it all off in a series of nearby hot springs pools, at the same time washing down a few cans of Imperial, the light, thirst-quenching lager pairing perfectly with the super-heated water.And I get out onto the water, too, the next day taking a sunset catamaran cruise. Climbing aboard the double-hulled boat moored near the resort, the Imperial soon flows again, the Latin music pumping, and we make slice our way through the waves to a hidden cove for some snorkelling.Joined by a couple others, I jump off the stern, bringing those beers into the tropical seas to float, and sip, simultaneously. Back on board, lounging on the bow, the sunset comes, but it has some competition.Ahead of us, a huge, looping rainbow begins to develop, becoming more vibrant by the moment, turning into a double-rainbow, at one point looking like it will become a triple rainbow. Behind us, descending quickly to the sea, the sun becomes a ball of fire, illuminating the mountainous islands in our wake.A tumbler of Tallisker, then maybe some teppanyaki await. But for the moment, I’m happy to down another Imperial, relax, and watch the all-natural light show on every side, feeling rather like a star.

Now, two years and another promotion later, dont let there be any spoilers or anything, At least, and if the ministers of an elected government come with regard to work of the state, shows why legislature desperately needs reform agenda Read Part 1:? let alone passage of bills.Firstpostwill examine by way of a multi-part series spread across a six-week span the 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 Elections are held every five years even if there are indications of waning confidence in the government within the firstfour years Citizens can vote only after 18 years of age regardless of whether they are capable of making electoral choices sooner And Parliament runs in sessions that cannot be more thansix months apart even though no legislative business could be completed if Parliament met only twice a year Time is the metric for these recurring events regardless of other factors with implications on the exercise of democratic rights In part one of this piece we had explored ‘time’ as a common thread among occurrences which could similarly impact democratic policy-making – selective invocation of rules mandating the passage of a certain duration of time for parliamentary procedures the government’s unilateral power to free and allocate time for parliamentary business and the government’s power to strategically re-promulgate ordinances to avert their expiry on the passage ofsix weeks’ time during which parliamentary approval was not forthcoming Representational image Source: Parliament of India website While we often think of time as a banal background requirement to do anything in the political process – or indeed in life– we seldom question why time is legally made a prerequisite for the exercise of liberties or powers in the political process In her book The Political Value of Time (2018) Elizabeth F Cohen explores why the architecture of government is so inextricably tied to durations of time and some ensuing consequences The general assumption is that time durations give political processes predictability Cohen argues however that durations of time in the schedules of political processes and procedures are deliberately designed in line with certain underlying norms of democracy or justice For instance elections are scheduled in a recurring fashion so that representatives and political parties can be certain that they will have to answer to voters; staggered elections are meant to retain some policy expertise within the house and prevent a hijack of the house by a single party or interest Durations are important in democracies Cohen suggests because all “political processes unfold in durations of time” Political processes being integral to democratic politics time becomes the ‘good’ whose ‘value’ is a medium of exchange in the political process Therefore time becomes the medium in which contestations for power take place between the government and the Opposition as we saw in part one of this piece But why time Time– seen as a neutral and universal variable– is used to represent subjective intangibles Cohen suggests For example 18 years of age is considered representative of the level of political maturity necessary for exercising electoral choice A child no matter how politically unaware at 17 years 11 months and 29 days is considered to have attained the maturity to vote overnight Likewise when durations of time are allocated to particular items of business time is used as a proxy for qualitative indicators such as “comprehensive deliberation by legislators” or “meaningful stakeholder engagement” On the expiry of the allocated duration it is assumed that parliamentary debate of appropriate quality standards hasbeen conducted However this is seldom the case Consider for instance the time spent by Parliamentary Standing Committees (with specific reference to the case study of Standing Committee on Information and Technology) on reviewing the budgetary proposals of the government – the only detailed ministry specific review undertaken of the Budget: A total ofeight hours were spent on reviewing a budgetary allocation of Rs 77000 crore in 2018 83 hours were spent on an allocation of Rs 72500 crore in 2017 and 64 hours were spent on an allocation of Rs 52000 crores in 2016 The rationale behind allocating such little time for review of budgetary proposals running into thousands of crores is not immediately evident even accounting for the multiple committees that MPs have to juggle on their schedules With an average of aboutseven hours being spent each year on reviewing demands for grants spanning the ministries for IT Communications and Information & Broadcasting can we make any conclusions about the quality of deliberations that went on in the Committee Consider also that Standing Committee deliberations are neither transcripted in detail nor telecasted live unlike parliamentary proceedings thus leaving the public without an opportunity to hold Committee members accountable based on the quality of deliberations The Committee report– a mere summary of the deliberations– is prepared by the Committee Secretariat and may not accurately depict the considerations and forces playing a role in Committee proceedings Can a quantifiable variable such as time ever be an accurate proxy for qualitative variables such as comprehensiveness of the review of demands for grants Since time is short it is only the representatives of ministries that are heard by the Committee during the review along with a few privileged stakeholders such as the ASSOCHAM FICCI CII and FISME whose representations are occasionally allowed by the Standing Committee on Commerce during the budget review process Stakeholders such as affected communities and rights-based advocacy groups are rarely heard in these proceedings Why is durational time given this importance especially when sub-par analysis and debate in policy-making can have grave socio-economic consequences owing to the force multipliers of inequality and discrimination Perhaps it is because time durations can be quantified unlike qualities such as "maturity" or "comprehensiveness of deliberation by legislators" Legislators might not easily agree on whether stakeholders’ views have been meaningfully considered or on when an issue can be treated as adequately debated Legislators might not even agree on what constitutes “comprehensive deliberation”– some might want a detailed consideration of stakeholders’ views while others might want a clause by clause discussion of the proposed bill on the floor of the House Perhaps one way to resolve this issue is to lay out a checklist of processes that need to be completed in the Rules of Procedure for deliberations to be considered comprehensive However this approach runs the risk of being rejected as too time-consuming Recall the rejection of MPs’ demands to refer the Triple Talaq Bill to a Standing Committee by the minister on the ground that it would needlessly delay justice for women who were on the receiving end of instant triple talaq (p 182) Time is thus privileged as a good of the inherent value even at the cost of the depth of parliamentary deliberations and the quality of the Bill Time the proxy for consent The neat commensurability of time as a proxy for the completion of political processes has its downside Consider the political process of democratic deliberation Regardless of how many bills were considered referred to committees or passed or how many amendments were proposed and voted upon or how many parliamentary questions were answered a session is considered as ‘completed’ upon the passage of time allotted for the session Having the notional completion of democratic work hinge on the passage of time “makes it possible to obtain agreement where agreement is necessary” and “unnecessary to obtain agreement where agreement is impossible” Cohen writes This explains why the government is able to set an ambitious agenda and push for its completion within the given time frame at all costs Consider the agenda for the week starting 12 March 2018 during the Budget Session in which consideration and the passing of the budgets for six ministries were listed separately along with nine bills with the budgets of the rest of the ministries guillotined As the week progressed the House kept getting adjourned due to Opposition protests This allowed the government to use the lack of time as the pretext to steamroll the Budget and five bills– including the Finance Bill and the Appropriation Bill– in two days spending a cumulative time of less than an hour on voting procedures These bills were treated as legitimately voted upon and approved despite the chaotic sloganeering and noise– even though the House did not deliberate their provisions or even hear objections or consider amendments– only because they were voted upon during time allocated for their consideration and passage It is also important to remember that while time durations are prescribed for debate on the floor of the House actually engaging in debate is not a necessary condition for voting upon a bill If the time for ‘consideration’ and ‘passing’ of a bill is running short ‘consideration’ can be done away with and the bill can be directly voted upon Thus time becomes a proxy for consent; upon passage of the allocated time for a specific business the decision-making procedure is treated as consensual even if it was lacking in full deliberative participation as Cohen points out The passage of allocated time is critical for legitimising a deeply conflicting – even if theoretical– democratic consent upon a course of action taken by the government Consider for instance the decision to promulgate the Fugitive Economic Offenders Ordinance on 21 April 2018 two weeks after the close of the Budget Session on 6 April The underlying principle behind the ordinance-making power is that the government– the political executive– acts because the legislature cannot and immediate action is necessary Recall that the fugitive economic offenders are not a new issue; some left the country as early as 2016 Consider also the Specified Bank Notes (Cessation of Liabilities) Ordinance 2016 which was promulgated on 30December 2016 two weeks after the close of the Winter Session on 16 December Recall that the relevant currency notes had ceased to be legal tender per the notification issued on 8 November 2016 after which the Winter Session had commenced on 16 November Yet ‘circumstances necessitating immediate action’ were peremptorily claimed two weeks after the Winter Session ended to issue the Ordinance that removed the liability of the demonetised notes from the RBI’s books of account Worse still per Section 5 of the Ordinance the penalty for holding demonetised notes would apply only after 31 March 2017 notified to be the “grace period” If the penal force of the Ordinance would commence only during the second half of the Budget Session of the following year it begs the question whether animmediate action was necessary at all to merit an ordinance In both

latter has been arrested The police are probing if Kaskar with help from Kokani was running a Thane-like racket in Nashik too “Kokani is a well-known name in Nashik and has faced allegations of being involved in betting” said an officer probing the extortion case In fact the presence of Maharashtra Irrigation Minister Girish Mahajan at the wedding of Kokani’s younger daughter in May had stoked a major controversy “During interrogation Kaskar told us that he would frequently go to Nashik to meet Kokani The wives of Kokani and Kaskar are sisters Also Kaskar’s son is married to Kokani’s elder daughter” said a senior officer linked to the probe Another officer said: “We will be verifying if like Thane a similar racket of extortion was going on in Nashik as well given the frequency of

connection with Bengali music “Though I have sung in 26 langauges after Hindi I sang the maximum number of songs in Bengali for music directors like Salil Chowdhury Satinath Mukherjee and Bappi Lahiri Since Bengali and Marathi language have many similarities I always felt as if it is my own” she said sometimes breaking into chaste Bengali while talking to this scribe who also has roots in Bengal While her musical journey is too well known to the world it is interesting to know that Mangeshkar is not only a food connoisseur but also a good cook “I love eating food and cooking for others

than in the pre-crisis period which saw an unprecedented investment boom led by the private sector Related News Two critical data sets released before Tuesday’s monetary policy review dealt with the second-quarter GDP and October’s CPI inflation The former at 53 per cent wouldn’t have come as a surprise to the RBI since it expects GDP growth to be 55 per cent in the current fiscal But the fast fall in retail inflation and crude prices surprised everyone stoking demand for an interest rate cut The dovish tone of the monetary policy review shows the RBI acknowledges the disinflationary trend Yet it chose to keep the repo rate at which it lends to banks unchanged at 8 per cent Consumer inflation has been surprisingly on the downside touching 55 per cent in October and could slip further in November benefiting from the statistical high base effect of last year and slipping crude oil prices The drop in inflation does create conditions for a policy rate cut but given the recent history of stubborn price rise caution is par for the course The RBI wants to ensure that inflation will remain sustainably low before it can make the decisive rate-cut moves The caution is justified Inflation fell as good luck proactive steps by the Narendra Modi government and the RBI’s firm stance on interest rates converged This will ensure that overall retail inflation will be lower this year than in the last fiscal despite the inadequate monsoon and marginal improvement in industrial growth Let us take the luck part first Brent crude has slid over 25 per cent from last year’s peak of $115 CRISIL expects crude to average $88-93 per barrel in this fiscal and $77-82 in the next which is lower than its earlier forecast This fall complemented by softening metal and commodity prices is good news on the fiscal external and inflation fronts Inflation in transportation and communication had already fallen below 3 per cent in September-October Geopolitical tensions will remain a risk but now softer prices have put an oil-guzzler like India on a good wicket Next up are the dynamics of sobering food inflation which has a 50 per cent weightage in the consumer price index inflation To be sure without taming food inflation it is not possible to sustain low retail inflation rates For example if the rate of food price rise stays at 10 per cent which is the average of the last eight years non-food inflation will need to come down to 2 per cent to sustaining 6 per cent retail inflation Food inflation fell to 56 per cent in October 2014 The government has also done its bit by selling grain stocked with the Food Corporation of India when needed and by showing restraint when raising minimum support prices (MSPs) The MSP increase this year has been only 44 per cent compared to an average 13 per cent annually over the last five years This and a high-base effect from last year (when vegetable prices flared up in the winter) have driven food inflation down But to bring it down structurally more needs to be done to improve agricultural productivity curb wastage and trim the role of middlemen in influencing the prices of fruit and vegetables Even if the RBI had cut its policy rate its impact would not have been felt fully until the factors that had lowered investment and growth turned favourable again A CRISIL study “Will rate cuts spur investments Not really” on November 5 2014 had argued this out Investments had plummeted in the last two years despite lower real interest rates than in the pre-crisis period which saw an unprecedented investment boom led by the private sector The real interest rate was at 24 per cent when investment growth plummeted to 03 per cent in fiscals 2013 and 2014 That compares with real interest rates of over 7 per cent between 2004 and 2008 when investment growth averaged 16 per cent annually So the real cost of borrowing was not the main culprit Second falling returns on investments deterred corporates Today the average return on investment has dropped to 28 per cent from over 6 per cent in the high-growth years No surprise therefore that private corporate investment as a percentage of the GDP had fallen to 104 per cent in fiscal 2013 from 15 per cent in 2008 Cost overruns and delays in clearances are what triggered financial stress for many infrastructure projects not interest rates Sure lower interest rates will reduce their debt servicing burden a touch But till investment risks in these sectors are reduced the risk premium on loans — and therefore the interest rates — will remain high Consequently the private sector will be loath to invest It is not easy for any central banker to accurately project the inflation trajectory and the impact of interest rate changes In 2004 Ben Bernanke former chairman of the US Federal Reserve had remarked that if making monetary policy was like driving a car then that car had an unreliable speedometer a foggy windshield and a tendency to respond unpredictably and late to the accelerator or the brake The RBI faces huge information constraints when assessing the speed of the economy as data becomes available after a time lag and is subject to revisions Forecasting economic data is even more challenging — the gap between inflation forecasts by the RBI and actual inflation in the last few years bears this out In other words even an experienced driver can make a mistake Ergo caution is warranted especially since inflation has regularly overshot the RBI’s targets in the last few years In October CPI inflation had dropped 1 percentage point from September to 55 per cent but core inflation remained unchanged at 59 per cent So concluding that prices are firmly under control would be erroneous The RBI is right in adopting a “better-safe-than-sorry” approach If inflation stays benign rate cuts can begin by April By then the RBI will also have information on the fiscal performance and targets of the government — key inputs for monetary policy decisions And hopefully by then we will also see formal adoption of inflation targeting by the government as recommended by the Urjit Patel Committee That will provide greater
