LET'S GO FOR A DRINK

Guest writer Carlo Iulian Pascu

 

Maybe on of the most frequent questions in after office hours. Asked from London to Singapore and from New York to Sidney. Asked in English speaking countries as well as in none.  During decades this sentence expressed more than just drinking something, more than the need of relax or feeling good.

The social aspect and the opportunity of sharing some moments with people, maybe enjoying a good conversation or just talking about sport events or football results – all this includes the question for sharing a drink. The huge creativity and the endless offer of drinks and cocktails in Bars and Restaurants might be increasing each week, but there are classics all over the world, which will never be untrendy. 

 

Reason enough for TRAVEL GOURMET MAGAZINE to invite the Beverage Expert 

CARLO IULIAN PASCO to write about this global classic – let’s take a GIN & TONIC:

The Gin&Tonic Trends

Trend? Fashion? Deal? It is time to analyse where the G&T goes. It was born as a simple glass with gin, ice, tonic and citrus and has become a whole structured universe of tastes. But sometimes the marketing & packaging leaves in the background aspects as relevant as the quality.

 

A few years ago G&T was just a drink served in a Tube Glass with a single ice, today, thanks to the natural evolution of the market and the marketing strategies, this drink has become one of the most requested drinks. My intention is not to focus on the service, much less on the fantastic liturgy that accompanies  it that, incidentally, has helped a greater number of audiences to get closer to bars that previously would not have entered. What I want is to focus on the negative effect of that boom. In my opinion, G&T has gotten out of hand. There are too many brands of Gins without substance. To finish, I want to say that, although there are realities that I do not like in this market, I wish long life to the G&T, to its liturgy of service.

QUIT SOCIAL MEDIA?

by Dr. Cal Newport / TEDx Tysons

'Deep work' will make you better at what you do. You will achieve more in less time. And feel the sense of true fulfilment that comes from the mastery of a skill.

 

Dr. Cal Newport is an Assistant Professor of Computer Science at Georgetown University. In addition to studying the theoretical foundations of our digital age, Newport also writes about the impact of these technologies on the world of work.

 

His most recent book, Deep Work, argues that focus is the new I.Q. in the modern workplace and that the ability to concentrate without distraction is becoming increasingly valuable. He previously wrote So Good They Can’t Ignore You, a book which debunks the long-held belief that “follow your passion” is good advice, and three popular books of unconventional advice for students.

"Personal details of over 87 millions facebook users are used illegally" 

This headline shocked some weeks ago the world. How trustworthy is Social Media? Aware users the fact that they are feeding a, mostly US based, industry with billions of dollars for free?

After quite some time the iconic representative of social media industry, Marc Zuckerberg CEO of Facebook, tried to give a statement, after being openly challenged by governments of the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union. But is there a damage for the user?  Are there negative consequences for teenagers? Is it true that you can get more business or better jobs by being dedicated to social media? In the following collection of contributions of international TEDx conferences TGM offers a selection of information about Social Media.

WHAT ARE YOU MISSING WHILE BEING A DIGITAL ZOMBIE

by Patrik Wincent / TEDx Stockholm

In a hyperconnected world, where mobile devices have become appendices to our body and people check their social media accounts hundreds of times a day, human interaction is sacrificed daily in favour of digital exchanges. In his talk from TEDxStockholm event "Generation WHY?", psychotherapist Patrik Wincent takes us on a journey through his own Internet addiction, and gives us valuable tips to avoid becoming digital zombies.

 

Patrik Wincent is the founder of ”Internetakuten”, a company with the main focus of offering counsel to people who are dealing with digital stress and to offer education in how to prevent and recognize digital stress. Patrik Wincent has also founded ”Dataspelsakuten”, a company which is similar to Internetakuten, but deals with people who are struggling with video gaming addiction.

 

Patrik Wincent is an authorized psychotherapist, he is a coach, a writer, a lecturer and spoken word artist. But most importantly, Patrik is a father to a teenager and so he fully understands the challenges that parents are faced with when it comes to having children that are growing up in this digital era.

DAILY BENEFITS

Travel Gourmet Magazine is actually published in three independent editions: the International in English; Central European in German and  since 2016 the Ibero-American Edition in Spanish language. This fact offers three options of each advertising client

Everybody working in customer contact development or client relations, knows perfectly the work behind the scenes, the input of intelligence and consistence which might be necessary to establish a positive permanent business relationship. 

 

To respect this fact and benefit the partner in the TGM Partner Programme was one of the first tasks, which were given to be integrated in the development of the Network Programme and rules.

 

Finally the solution was done. By registering your basic business details in the Partner Network it's created a Partner Identity, based on the registered E-mail address, on this easy way, each member of the programme can be perfectly identified, when new or existing clients are ordering new advertising services on TG Magazine.

This fact guarantees to the partner the commission for each realised purchase of their contacts. Which means less administration work and absolutely transparency for the partner.
