SIcoms Swimsuit Package Draws Sites SecondBiggest Traffic Day

first_imgOverall, SI.com said Tuesday was the site’s second-highest trafficked day (behind the February 15, 2007 Swimsuit Issue unveiling), with 3.633 million unique visitors.With all the attention SI’s Swimsuit Issue gets, the magazine’s online success isn’t overly suprising. (What is surprising is that I still haven’t made it through the whole thing yet.) What’s important here is the continued success the issue has had monetarily. The overall franchise—which I assume generates a sizable chunk of the brand’s annual revenues—this year was up 15 percent in revenues over 2009. The magazine carried 67 ads, which was roughly flat over last year.That’s pretty good considering how bad the ad market has been.For now, we can only wait and see if Decker and her bikini-clad ladies can move issues off the newsstands and on mobile in record-setting numbers. For the third straight year, Time Inc.’s Sports Illustrated unveiled its highly anticipated franchise powerhouse, the Swimsuit Issue, Monday night on CBS’ Late Show with David Letterman. For those of you living under rocks, this year’s sultry cover model is Brooklyn Decker, wife of tennis star Andy Roddick.Wasting no time, SI posted the behemoth 2010 swimsuit package online, packed with more than 1,400 photos and 100 videos of all the scantily-clan models taken during their lush/exotic/(add suggestive adjective here) photo shoots. Sounds like a recipe for some server-testing traffic. And it was.SI.com said the package drew 42.2 million page views, an increase of 14 percent over 37 million last year. Meanwhile, the number of unique visitors during the first day soared 85 percent to 2.3 million. Video views totaled 7.1 million, a 126 percent bump from 2009.last_img read more

MC Magic’s music stands out for his use of synthesizers. You hear bits and pieces of the genre’s influence in Cuco’s music, who himself is Mexican-American. Other influences include Tame Impala. He launched into the spotlight with a cover of Santo & Johnny’s “Sleepwalk” and has since garnered a following of thousands on social media.”I will never underestimate the strength of a fan-girl ever again. They’re wild,” his manager Doris Munoz told the L.A. Times about the rise of his following. The 20-year-old artist’s sentimental vibe connects mostly with young Latinas and thus has been dubbed a “heart-throb.”Rolling Stone captured Cuco’s role in the music industry well: “In a music industry that’s been cashing in on more urban genres like reggaeton and Latin trap, acts like Cuco represent an alternative dimension of Latin pop that’s picking up steam in United States.”But, Cuco doesn’t want to be pigeon-holed. “It’s cool, like I’m super open to doing things for like my people, my own culture, but ultimately I make music for everybody,” he told the Fader.  Cuco is currently recovering from an accident that happened in early October and has canceled the rest of his 2018 tour.Learn more about Cuco’s sound:”Lover Is A Day””Lover Is A Day” is the song Cuco is most proud of. The song “did so well like I never even though it would do so well, it kind of got me out there,” he told Teal magazine.”Lo Que Siento””Lo Que Siento” or “What I Feel” was inspired by Chicano rappers Lil’ Rob and MC Magic. I just heard the chord progression for “Lo Que Siento” in kind of a way where it’s mixed with a lot of Chicano rap. But then there’s also that indie side of it with guitars and all that other bullshit. It was just in the moment,” he told Genius.”Amor De Siempre”This all Spanish-language song has Cuco singing about waking up next to his lover and looking into her eyes. “When I look at those eyes, that’s where I want to live/ If you kiss me, that’s where I want to die.” 7 Artists Who Have Added New Life To Reggaeton Prev Next How Bad Bunny Is Putting Latin Trap On The Map Bad BunnyPhoto: Steven Ferdman/Getty Images 7 Artists Who Have Added New Life To Reggaeton IbeyiPhoto: David Wolff – Patrick/Redferns Inside Maluca Mala’s Daring Sound Amara La Negra Photo: Mike Pont/Getty Images Facebook Ibeyi Are Leaving Their Mark On U.S. Pop Culture IbeyiPhoto: David Wolff – Patrick/Redferns Ibeyi Are Leaving Their Mark On U.S. Pop Culture Esperanza SpaldingPhoto: Noam Galai/Getty Images Princess Nokia Is Making Space For The Voiceless IbeyiPhoto: David Wolff – Patrick/Redferns Bad BunnyPhoto: Steven Ferdman/Getty Images Cuco Is Making A Different Kind Of Latin Pop Amara La Negra Photo: Mike Pont/Getty Images Amara La Negra On Her Afro-Latina Identity Amara La Negra On Her Afro-Latina Identity Ibeyi Are Leaving Their Mark On U.S. Pop Culture Twitter Email Maluca MalaPhoto: J.

Cuba investing in hotels entertainment golf as it banks on Canadians

first_img Posted by Friday, June 15, 2018 HAVANA — Cuba will continue moving forward with its investment plan to add over 100,000 rooms, 47 entertainment facilities and 24 golf courses by 2030 banking on their number one international traveller, Canadians.The move comes despite uncertainty for the potential for American arrivals, uncertainly that has increased under the Trump administration.“After Obama there was this sentiment that people should come visit Cuba before changes with the influx of American tourists, but even under Obama, Americans are prohibited to do tourism in Cuba, so investment will continue as planned for our other valued international guests,” says Eloy Govea, Director of Canada, Cuba Tourist Board.The Cuba Tourist board recently announced a comprehensive blueprint for infrastructure growth and development extending from 2018 to 2030. The plan comes as a response to consistently growing demand for the destination, which typically enjoys over a million visitors from Canada alone each year. Cuba received 4.7 million tourists in 2017, a 16.2% increase over the previous year.More news:  Help Princess Cruises break the world record for largest vow renewal at seaCuba began intensifying the development of hotel accommodations in 2017. With an annual hotel infrastructure growth rate of 10%, collaborative efforts between the government and international developers have led to the addition of over 2500 hotels room each year.“Actually, the average is about 8,000 hotel rooms on average to be built per year until 2030, ramping up to about 11,000 rooms per year in the future,” says Govea.This growth rate is expected to swell rapidly as the country sets projections for 103,000 new rooms. The Hotel Varadero Internacional, the Prado y Malecón, and the Packard Hotel in Havana are on track to open by 2019.This renewed focus on accommodation capacity is matched by a commitment to invest in infrastructure and attractions in the broader tourism industry. Cuba is on pace to add 23 nautical stations and marinas, 24 golf courses, and 47 entertainment facilities over the next 12 years. These developments are intended to round out the country’s already robust offering of natural attractions, which includes 10 world heritage sites, 14 national parks, and hundreds of national monuments.More news:  GLP Worldwide introduces first-ever Wellness programs“Right now we only have one real golf course of 18-holes in Cuba –in Varadero – but the government is supporting 24 new projects. For example, a new one will be launched shortly in the western part of Cuba, which is the only one in the world that will feature a hole in the ocean,” says Govea.Securing foreign investment is key to the successful realization of Cuba’s goals in the sector. To this end, tourism authorities in Cuba have announced 87 management and development contracts with 19 international companies. These agreements will channel most of the investment from abroad into hotel rooms and theme parks, while domestic investment is funneled toward high-priority regions and provinces including Havana, Cienfuegos, Camaguey, Las Tunas and Holguin.For more information visit GoCuba.ca.
