Photography Can Be Good For Business

Post by Carol Patterson »

Photography can be a great revenue generator for ecotourism organizations. To learn more about Doug Adams, a tourism operator who has successfully diversified his business using photography check out my fall newsletter at http://www.kalahari-online.com/aut07.pdf

The experience he has gained can benefit many other organizations. :D

For Fiji Water, a Big List of Green Goals

[quote]Fiji Water, with annual sales of about $150 million, is but a drop in the bucket of the $15 billion domestic bottled-water industry. But little Fiji could make a big splash on the sustainability front ... Such moves are not winning over all environmentalists, though.

Boxing Day - Wikipedia
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boxing_day
The celebration is traditional, dating back to the middle ages, and consisted of the practice of giving of gifts to employees, the poor, or to people in a lower social class. The name has numerous folk etymologies[3]; the Oxford English Dictionary attributes it to the Christmas box; the verb box meaning: "To give a Christmas-box (colloq.); whence boxing-day."

Are Newspapers Doomed? (Do We Care?)

Are Newspapers Doomed? (Do We Care?): Newspapers & the Net Forum
http://www.britannica.com/blogs/2008/04 ... net-forum/

The tensions created by the new economics of production and consumption are visible today in many media, from music to movies. Nowhere, though, have they been so clearly on display, and so unsettling, as in the newspaper business. Long a mainstay of culture, print journalism is going through a wrenching transformation, and its future is in doubt.

Athens, Greece (ECOCLUB.com) - Opening the 16th annual convention of the Greek Association of Tourism Enterprises (SETE) in Athens, Tourism Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos spoke about the need for a new, more ecological tourism model, and low-impact forms of tourism that would highlight the special attributes of the Greek environment and culture and guarantee economic and environmental sustainability.
