World Tourism Organization
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is the United Nations agency responsible for the promotion of responsible, sustainable and
universally accessible tourism. It is the leading international organization in the field of tourism, which promotes tourism as a driver of economic
growth, inclusive development and environmental sustainability and offers leadership and support to the sector in advancing knowledge and tourism
policies worldwide. It encourages the implementation of the Global Code of Ethics for Tourism [1] to maximize the contribution of tourism to socio-
economic development, while minimizing its possible negative impacts, and is committed to promoting tourism as an instrument in achieving the United
Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), geared towards reducing poverty and fostering sustainable development.

UNWTO generates market knowledge, promotes competitive and sustainable tourism policies and instruments, fosters tourism education and training,
and works to make tourism an effective tool for development through technical assistance projects in over 100 countries around the world.

UNWTO’s membership includes 156 countries, 6 territories and over 400 affiliate members representing the private sector, educational institutions,
tourism associations and local tourism authorities. Its headquarters are located in Madrid.[2]

EDF    


Peter Johann,

Generations from now, Americans will look back at President Trump’s executive order to rescind the Clean Power Plan—America’s first ever national
limit on dangerous carbon pollution from power plants.

They will either mourn this as the moment when America turned its back on climate progress and the clean energy future…

Or they will celebrate the great grassroots effort that stood up to the president’s disastrous decision.

The choice is ours. How we respond in the days, weeks, and months ahead will determine the future
our kids and grand kids will inherit.

EDF has always sought solutions and worked collaboratively with all parties to drive real progress. But this is a time
when we must stand up and be counted.

You’ve been active with EDF to oppose President Trump’s anti-environment agenda. I urge you now more than ever to make a donation of whatever
amount you can afford to give EDF the resources we urgently need to stop this assault on common sense and basic climate science.

Let’s be clear about what has happened this week: President Trump has commanded the EPA to rescind the Clean Power Plan without offering any
replacement to protect our communities from the growing threat of climate change or to move America toward a clean energy economy.

This is unacceptable. With your support, here are some of the actions we are taking:
1. We are mobilizing our members and activists to join the People’s Climate March on Saturday, April 29th. This is our opportunity to march shoulder to
shoulder with hundreds of groups and hundreds of thousands of concerned Americans to deliver our message: We need Less Pollution. More
Solutions.

2. President Trump’s executive order starts a legal and regulatory process, which the EPA must follow. That process includes many opportunities for
concerned Americans to offer public comments and with your support we will inundate the EPA with support of the current rules. We helped deliver
more than 8 million comments in support of the Clean Power Plan and we will not be silent as they try to rescind this important rule.

3. We will work in the states to transition to a clean energy economy and toward meeting the goals of the Clean Power Plan, regardless of its fate.

4. We will launch a massive online engagement and grassroots organizing program to press governors, state legislators, senators, representatives,
public utility commissioners, and other key decision makers to support the goals of slashing climate pollution and unleashing clean energy innovation.

5. Our legal team is preparing to file and/or join lawsuits opposing the Trump administration’s actions. Any effort to roll back the Clean Power Plan will
be subject to rigorous judicial review in federal court. The Supreme Court has affirmed EPA’s authority and responsibility to curb climate pollution under
the Clean Air Act three times since 2007. If the Trump Administration rescinds the Clean Power Plan without any replacement, it will be on very shaky
legal footing.

I wish I were writing to you with a different message. I prefer to enlist your support for bold and innovative initiatives to reduce pollution, improve public
health, and unleash clean energy. And I will be coming back to you on another day with just such a message.

But today is a day for those of us who respect science and cherish life to stand together to defend climate and clean energy progress.

The stakes are high. Future generations will look back to the moment and pass judgment on what we do. Let’s make them proud.

Thank you for your citizenship and support,

Fred Krupp
President

The Austrian government wanted to raze this house. Faced with the outcry, she decided to organize an architectural competition.
Austria will launch an architectural competition on the future of the birthplace of Hitler. The key is that the building, located in the center of Braunau-am-
Inn, on the German border, not "can be found in its external shape," said Interior Minister Wolfgang Sobotka to the press Vienna. The government wants
to prevent the house, empty for several years, became a place of neo-Nazi pilgrimage.
Following the advice in the sense of a part of the political class, including the Green opposition parties FPÖ and (far right), Wolfgang Sobotka
announced Monday in the press that the house would be "destroyed" and replaced by a new building.


The announcement of the demolition has sparked an outcry from members of an expert commission set up this summer, according to which the
destruction of this building from the 17th century was not necessary for him to lose his sour character .
"Breaking the symbolism attached to this place"
"The option of demolition was explicitly proposed by the government and we have not approved", said Clemens Jabloner, a senior judge and Oliver
Rathkolb, a historian, in a joint statement. In its report, the Committee of Experts had argued that use of the building according to values ​​"contrary to the
crimes committed by Hitler" would be enough to "break the symbolism attached to this place," without it being conducted demolition.
Wolfgang Sobotka has said on Tuesday that the place would be in the future to house an administration or a social institution, without necessarily being
totally demolished.
Leased by the state since 1972 to control their use, the imposing yellow building where the dictator was born in 1889 has long housed a center for
disabled - a category of the population who had been the victim of the Nazi regime. Due to a dispute with the family that owns the building is unoccupied,
however, since 2011, attracting nostalgic for the Third Reich.
The Austrian state, which pays 4,800 euros per month in rent, initiated an expropriation procedure, which must still be approved by parliament. The
expropriation bill was presented Tuesday in committee.
NEIN ZU TTIP

Als Bundespräsident werde ich den TTIP-Vertrag nicht unterschreiben. Ich gehe davon aus, dass es gar nicht so weit kommt, und TTIP im Parlament
nicht beschlossen wird.

Durch TTIP droht eine Absenkung von Standards in den Bereichen Lebensmittel, Umwelt und Gesundheit sowie eine Zerstörung der kleinräumigen
österreichischen Landwirtschaft. Das ist nicht zu akzeptieren.

Ich will nicht, dass durch TTIP gentechnisch veränderte Lebensmittel durch die Hintertür zu uns kommen, die österreichische Landwirtschaft mit ihrem
hohen Bio-Anteil unter Druck gerät oder Standards im Gesundheitsbereich oder bei den Arbeitsschutzrechten gesenkt werden. Unsere Bio- und
Bergbauern, die kleinstrukturierte Landwirtschaft dürfen nicht dem Druck der Gentechnik-Allmacht von Monsanto ausgesetzt werden.

Die von Verfassungsexperten gegen die Schiedsgerichte und die regulatorische Kooperation vorgebrachten Argumente teile ich. Ich bin der
Überzeugung, dass es keinen Bedarf dafür gibt und die österreichischen und europäischen Rechtsnormen ausreichend sind.

NO TO TTIP

As President, I will not sign the TTIP Treaty. I assume that it does not come so far, and TTIP is not passed by Parliament.

By TTIP threatening lowering of standards in the areas of food, environment and health as well as the destruction of small-scale agriculture in Austria.
This is not acceptable.

I do not want that by TTIP GMO foods come through the back door to us; the Austrian agriculture unit with its high organic portion under pressure or
standards in the health sector or in labor rights are reduced. Our biotechnology and mountain farmers, the small farms should not be subjected to the
pressure of the genetic engineering omnipotence of Monsanto.

The concerns raised by constitutional experts against the arbitration and regulatory cooperation arguments I share. I am convinced that there is no
need for it and the Austrian and European legal standards are sufficient.

Following a press conference with Manuel Valls, Canadian Prime Minister considered that Europe would engage in a way "unproductive" by refusing to
sign the free trade agreement with Canada.
Justin Trudeau comes out the yellow card. A rejection by the 28 countries of the European Union free trade agreement with Canada (Ceta) would be
"distressing" and send to the world "a clear message" that the EU is engaged in "a very productive way" , said Thursday the Canadian Prime Minister.
The time has come "for Europe to decide what is the European Union", he ruled during a joint press conference with his French counterpart Manuel
Valls.


European opposition
Canadian and European leaders have an appointment in Brussels on 27 October to ratify the transatlantic treaty, but voices continue to rise in the old
continent to prevent its adoption, while the agreement of all national parliaments is required for its full implementation.
In particular, the Parliament of the French Community of Belgium adopted on Wednesday a resolution that could force the country to refuse Ceta.
"If in a week or two, Europe is unable to sign a commercial agreement with a progressive country like Canada, with which Europe thinks she doing
business in the coming years?" He told Justin Trudeau .
"For me, this is a time when questions arise about the usefulness of Europe if Europe fails to sign this agreement, it will be a very clear message, not
only for Europeans but also the world that Europe is about to choose a very productive way for its citizens and for the world, "blasted the Liberal leader.
Rendre sa grandeur à l'Europe

Comment l'Union pourrait répondre à l'administration Trump. Par Joachim Fels, Managing Director et conseiller économique international au bureau de
Newport Beach, PIMCO
Il est difficile de comprendre pourquoi la promesse de campagne de Donald Trump,
« Make America Great Again » (Rendre sa grandeur à l'Amérique),...

GOOGLE TRANSLATE:


How the Union could respond to the Trump administration. By Joachim Fels, Managing Director and International Economic Advisor, Newport Beach
Office, PIMCO
It is hard to understand why Donald Trump's campaign promise, "Make America Great Again", has found so much echo. It is true that the terrorist threat,
rising inequality and destructive digitization of jobs have been a cause of concern for some time. However, a majority of indicators reveal that the US
economy is doing very well, and certainly better than Europe.
If the median real income of US households remains below the peak of the late 1990s, it has risen sharply over the past four years and will soon reach
new highs. The Americans continue to live in the biggest houses, drive the most beautiful cars and eat the biggest steaks. The standard of living in the
United States, measured by GDP per capita, is one of the highest in the world (except for a few special cases such as Luxembourg, Norway and
Switzerland). 50% to those of Europe and Japan. American technology, music and movies punctuate the days and nights of people all over the world.
The financial industry in the United States has a stronger and more profitable base, the housing and services sectors are the most dynamic and its main
universities are unrivaled. So we are far from a catastrophic scenario.
A lost decade for Europe
If there is a great global economy that must regain its greatness, it is Europe. After signing a correct economic performance between the creation of the
euro and the global financial crisis, Europe stumbled and lost a decade. Economic growth in the European Union has generally stagnated since 2008
and the unemployment rate remains twice as high as in the United States. The euro crisis has led to a balkanisation of the banking sector and a
fragmentation of the financial markets. The evolution towards an "ever closer union" has stopped and separatism and a new nationalism are
progressing. The Brexit seems to be a foretaste of what awaits us rather than a specific isolated event.
Ironically, Donald Trump's promise to privilege America could help Europe regain its greatness.
Threats to Germany
First, although the new US administration seeks to discourage imports into the United States and boost domestic production, European exporters should
still be able to increase their market share in the United States for some time. Indeed, the dollar appreciated and the euro has declined since the
presidential election across the Atlantic, enhancing the competitiveness of European exporters. If the Fed carries out three rate increases, as envisaged
by the FOMC forecasts, and if the European Central Bank continues to increase its balance sheet and tax the banks' surplus reserves, the dollar may
even strengthen further.
Moreover, the strongest confidence of households and companies, as well as rising stock prices, could stimulate US demand for domestic and foreign
products. The shift from demand for foreign products to domestic products may bear fruit, but in the short term, the US manufacturing sector simply
lacks the capacity to close the gap while ensuring quality. The majority of the "Make America Great Again" hats worn by Donald Trump's supporters
during his investiture were made in China or Vietnam and it will take some time and significant price changes for the wealthiest Americans to favor
Chevrolet , Lincoln, Chrysler and Jeep to BMW, Mercedes, Lexus and Range Rover.
Second, the prospect of a more protectionist US administration and the pressures of populist movements at the local level are likely to generate political
responses in Europe to foster domestic demand and potential growth. The external threat to Germany's growth model, fueled by exports, is now real,
which will help Chancellor Angela Merkel sweep away her party's opposition to pursue a more expansionary fiscal policy. In addition, if the austerity
discourse against Greece is unlikely to change significantly, greater leniency could be given to the more growth-oriented fiscal policies adopted in other
euro area countries.
Good surprises waiting in Europe
Finally, a more isolationist foreign and defense policy in the United States could give rise to a new common defense initiative within the European Union.
The commitment to a joint defense budget funded by joint programming to counteract real or perceived external threats is much easier to defend than
any other form of fiscal union.
In view of all these factors, optimism towards the United States and the pessimism for Europe currently integrated by the markets, Europe seems to
present the greatest potential for good surprises.
All in all, Donald Trump might well succeed in rendering greatness to an America that already shows it. But it is very likely that in four or eight years
Europeans will be more numerous than Americans to be able to say "Thank you, Mr. President! "

Teddy Roosevelt on Bright Angel Trail
Peter,

With so much to follow in Washington right now – and so much happening all across the country ­– I want to make sure the investigations into Russian
interference in the 2016 election don’t get lost in the shuffle. Special counsel Robert Mueller has impaneled a grand jury, signaling that the
investigations are reaching a critical moment, and new information continues to surface.

We’ve seen findings that Russians purchased political ads on Facebook, Google and other online platforms to spread disinformation and stoke fear.
And internal reviews of that spending indicate the Russians used sophisticated targeting to sow discord. In addition to the propaganda, we also know of
at least 21 states where Russians tried to hack into election systems, a story which hasn’t gotten the thorough attention it deserves.

I’ve talked about the Russia investigations with folks in Maine and all across the country – including some who wonder what the point of all this is.
People understandably want to put the 2016 elections behind them and leave this in the past – but, unfortunately, Russian meddling isn’t a thing of the
past. It’s a real concern for the future of our electoral system. As former FBI Director James Comey said during his testimony in front of the Senate
Intelligence Committee: “They’ll be back.” Putin doesn’t “side” with anyone but himself – he’s not a Republican or a Democrat, and this was not a one-
off. Russia has tried to undermine democratic regimes in France, the Netherlands and Germany with its disinformation campaigns, and it’ll be back to
attempt to undermine ours in 2018 and 2020. I don’t have any doubt about that.

Our country’s voters have critical decisions to make in the months and years ahead, and we need to make sure all Americans get the chance to make
their own choices free of foreign interference. I consider this some of the most important work of my career. As a member of the Senate Intelligence
Committee, I’m focused on learning exactly what the Russians did and how they did it. We must uncover the facts, hold people accountable and prevent
this from happening again.

I appreciate you taking the time to read my thoughts, and I’ll keep you in the loop as this continues to develop.

Thank you for your support.

Trumpiversary: Here Are the Winners & Losers

9:33 am ET November 9, 2017 (Zacks) Print

Before President Trump’s election, many pundits found it difficult to assess the outcome of his victory as his proposals seemed contradictory or lacked
details. On the contrary, such pro-economic policies helped technology and financial stocks rise sharply, helping Wall Street’s major equity indicators
showing the best rally in the past 81 years.

Defense stocks have, in fact, left the rest in the dust. The sector gained the most following tensions between Trump and North Korea. Trump’s
Afghanistan strategy has also lent such stocks a fillip. However, not everyone has partaken in this year-long rally. Let us thus take a look at the potential
gainers and losers of the ‘Trump trade’.

Trump Rally Fed Off Wall Street Anxiety

It’s been a year since Trump’s stunning performance on election night that had rattled the global equity market. The Dow futures tumbled nearly 900
points as investors remained concerned about Trump’s questionable campaign promises on trade and immigration.
But, investors’ apprehensions ebbed by morning and U.S. stocks started moving north. In fact, the Dow’s 1-year gain since Trump’s win turned out to be
the highest post-Election Day rise since 1945. The blue-chip gauge surged 28.5% since Nov 8, 2016.

The S&P 500 also rallied 21% since the close of trading on Election Day 2016. This is the benchmark index’s third best performance during a President’s
first election since World War II, lagging that of Presidents John F Kennedy (1960, 29%) and George H. W. Bush (1988, 23%), as per Sam Stovall of
CFRA Research.

Though Trump had taken over a progressing economy with the stock market near an all-time high, his pro-growth and business-friendly policies as well as
bets on deregulation gave investors ample scope.

Technology and Financials Benefit From Trump Policy

Promises of pro-business legislation by Trump have primarily supported the gains for the software industry and the manufacturers of the internal
technologies — the semiconductor makers. The House’s latest corporate tax plan will lower taxes from 35% to 20%. As a result, tech companies’ after-tax
earnings will improve and lead to repatriation of trillions of dollars held abroad by such companies. Tech companies can use this extra cash for research
and developments, and mergers and acquisitions.

If the bill turns into a law, tech bigwigs including Apple Inc. AAPL and Microsoft Corporation MSFT as well as semiconductor giant NVIDIA Corporation
NVDA  will largely benefit as they have billions of dollars stashed outside the United States. In fact, NVIDIA – Zacks Rank #2 (Buy) stock – became the
biggest gainer since the election, up a staggering 209%. Looking at the big picture, the technology sector is up around 39%.

You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Financials, in the meantime, has benefitted from the possibility of deregulating the sector. At the same time, Trump appointed Jerome Powell as the next
Federal Reserve chairman, someone who favors his regulatory changes.

Trump views the Dodd-Frank regulatory overhaul as a harsh measure, especially, on smaller banks. Trump has called for repealing parts of the Dodd-
Frank Act, which has for a considerable period of time limited operational flexibility. Trump’s administration also aims at increasing the minimum asset
threshold for banking behemoths, which will lend more flexibility, boost valuations, strengthen consolidation and increase lending. The value of stock and
options held by Jamie Dimon, the CEO of JPMorgan Chase & Co., turned out to be the highest since Trump’s win, while the broader financial sector
soared almost 35% in the said period.

Defense Stocks – By Far the Best Trade

Aerospace and the defense sector has been the best trade since Trump’s election. While deal making activity boosted the sector, Trump’s unrelenting
war of words against Pyongyang provided enough impetus to the sector to climb further north.
Let us also not forget that Trump revealed a reversal of strategy in Afghanistan, promising to “fight to win” instead of withdrawing entirely. He vowed to
ramp up U.S. engagement in Afghanistan, the country’s longest war to date. He added that moving troops away from Afghanistan would create a
“vacuum,” which terrorists would “instantly fill.”

Kratos Defense & Security Solutions, Inc. KTOS, AeroVironment, Inc. AVAV and Aerojet Rocketdyne Holdings, Inc. AJRD have been the best-performing
components in the defense sector, with their stock value doubling since Trump’s victory.

Aerospace company Boeing Co gained the maximum at 87% since the election. Trump’s pledge to significantly increase federal spending related to
national security was cheered by Republicans and helped defense and aerospace stocks scale higher. He had promised to seek a $54-billion hike in
spending on tanks, ships and weapon systems. The defense budget will climb 10%, according to the White House, while Trump recommended $30 billion
in supplementary military spending for this year.

Which Sectors Are Not So Lucky?

Not everyone, though, has participated in the year-long rally. The three worst performing sectors since Trump’s election have been consumer staples,
energy and telecommunication services. While staples and energy managed to eke out marginal gains, telecommunications tanked nearly 10%.
While volatility in oil prices during Trump’s regime made investors cautious from investing in the energy sector, staples and telecommunications were
affected due to higher interest rates. The Federal Reserve has lifted rates twice this year and is expected to raise it again next month.

Retailers too have been affected during Trump’s regime, as they continue to adapt to changing consumer tastes and preferences as well as evolving
shopping methods. Notably, Macy's Inc M was among the biggest losers since the election, down 52.3%. Currently, the omnichannel retail company has a
Zacks Rank #4 (Sell).

Today's Stocks from Zacks' Hottest Strategies

It's hard to believe, even for us at Zacks. But while the market gained +18.8% from 2016 - Q1 2017, our top stock-picking screens have returned +157.
0%, +128.0%, +97.8%, +94.7%, and +90.2% respectively.

And this outperformance has not just been a recent phenomenon. Over the years it has been remarkably consistent. From 2000 - Q1 2017, the
composite yearly average gain for these strategies has beaten the market more than 11X over. Maybe even more remarkable is the fact that we're willing
to share their latest stocks with you without cost or obligation.

UPDATE: European banks rally, leading stocks to 1-month closing high

U.K. and EU make breakthrough on Brexit divorce terms, clearing way to next stage of negotiations
European stocks rose Friday, scoring their highest close in a month, after the U.K. and the European Union came to terms on a Brexit divorce deal,
opening the way to a key phase of talks.

Bank stocks were in rally mode after news of the Brexit breakthrough and after global financial officials finally signed a deal Thursday to harmonize
banking rules.

How markets are moving: The Stoxx Europe 600 popped up 0.7% to close at 389.25, logging its highest close since Nov. 9, according to FactSet data.
For the week, the Stoxx 600 scored a 1.4% gain, following last week's fall of 0.7%.
(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/european-stocks-on-course-for-2nd-losing-session-with-tech-knocked-down-2017-12-06)In Frankfurt on Friday, the
DAX 30 index jumped 0.8% to 13,153.70, and in Paris, the CAC 40 gained 0.3% to 5,399.09. Spain's IBEX 35 leapt 0.6% to 10,321.10.

The U.K.'s FTSE 100 ended up 1% at 7,393.96, propelled higher by a drop in the pound.
The euro traded at $1.1765 at the time of the European close, down from $1.1774 late Thursday in New York.

What's moving markets: The president of the European Commission, Jean-Claude Juncker, said early Friday that "sufficient progress" has been made
(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/breakthrough-on-brexit-terms-opens-way-to-next-phase-of-talks-2017-12-08) on three key issues in Brexit negotiations
to allow the talks to advance to the next phase.

"I believe we have now made the breakthrough we needed," Juncker said at a press conference in Brussels.
After a night of intense negotiating, British Prime Minister Theresa May managed to resolve the final issue -- the Irish border -- needed to satisfy the EU
side.

The Brussels negotiating team is now recommending that EU leaders give the go-ahead for Brexit talks to move to the second stage, which will cover trade
agreements and a potential transition period. The European Council meeting of EU leaders is scheduled for Dec. 14-15.
An EU official reportedly threw cold water on hopes of a quick deal on trade, saying it's not realistic to expect an agreement by March 2019, when the U.K.
leaves the union.

The pound hit an intraday high of $1.3521 following news of the deal, but since slumped to $1.3366. That compares with $1.3475 late Thursday in New
York. Against the euro, sterling fell to EUR1.1363 from EUR1.1445 on Thursday.

Analysts said the drop came not because traders were disappointed with the deal, but because a lot of the optimism had already been price in.

(http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-game-of-krones-inside-denmarks-battle-to-defend-its-35-year-old-currency-peg-2017-12-08)

Stock movers: The Stoxx Europe 600 Bank Index surged 2.2%, marking its biggest leap since July.

On Thursday, international banking regulators agreed on the final Basel III standards for banks. The harmonized rules, conceived after the financial crisis,
aim to shield taxpayers from bank bailouts by making sure lenders have adequate cushion against shocks. The standards must now be passed into
national laws. The agreement further highlighted that most lenders hold a sufficient amount of capital.

Friday's Brexit breakthrough also helps the financial industry, as it brightens the prospects for a smooth transition when the U.K. withdraws from the EU in
2019.

In the bank group, Germany's Deutsche Bank AG (DBK.XE) (DBK.XE) jumped 3.3%, while shares of London-based Barclays PLC (BCS)(BCS) rose 2.5%.
France's Société Générale SA (GLE.FR) added 2.3%, Spain's Banco Santander SA (SAN) picked up 1.8%, and Italy's Unione di Banche Italiane SpA
(UBI.MI) moved up 2.2%.

What strategists are saying: "GBP/USD tumbled throughout the afternoon after the early morning buying frenzy fizzled. Sterling got off to a strong start in
the early hour due to the news that the U.K. and EU will move onto next round of talks in relation to Brexit. Traders a feeling in was going to be good news
that was reported this morning so some of the move was already priced in," said David Madden, market analyst at CMC Markets UK, in a note.

"The DAX has been given a boost after Martin Schulz of the Social Democrats suggested his party is warming up to the idea of entering into coalition talks
with Angela Merkel's Christian Democratic Union. The German economy has been performing well without a functioning government, and [the] news has
added to the positive sentiment," he added.
