The Business Research Company’s Arts Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, January 17, 2021 / — New year, new updates! Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact:

Art organizers are using augmented reality (AR) technology to create real world experiences for customers as one of the arts market trends. Augmented reality is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time. Museums and zoos are now using AR as a tool to educate and entertain the audience by creating a visual tour guide and displaying 3D content in a real-world camera view. For instance, Cleveland Museum of Art is using augmented reality technology to let users interact and access the most current and comprehensive information about every piece of artwork in the museum. In Acropolis Museum in Athens, Greece, the team used AR technology to bring a collection of architectural and sculptural remains to life.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the global arts market, accounting for 31% of the market in 2020. Western Europe was a close second, also accounting for about 31% of the global market. Africa has the smallest arts market share.

The global arts market size is expected to grow from $347.53 billion in 2020 to $405.05 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 16.6%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The arts market forecast is that it is expected to reach $552.57 billion in 2025 at a CAGR of 8%.

With programs such as Gross Global Happiness, the World Happiness Foundation supports leaders from governments and organizations that are creating the conditions for happiness and well-being for all.”

— Luis Gallardo, Founder & President – World Happiness Foundation

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2021 / — Globally, happiness is one of our most important goals. Studies show that we value it more than success, knowledge, or material items. And yet, in a world that has continued to progress and become objectively better by most conceivable standards, why do many find this such a difficult goal to reach? As important as happiness is, how much do we know about it and its impacts on individual and global progress?

The Gross Global Happiness summit is an innovative executive education event in which people worldwide come to tackle these very questions. We will learn, unlearn, and share experiences on the topic of happiness, bringing together a multitude of perspectives and expertise.

This experience will combine theory and practice, touching on the latest research from positive psychologists and delving into the practical applications of what we’ve learned and are still discovering in the field. Happiness will be brought front and center as we explore and understand how people can lead happier, more meaningful lives.

The Importance of focusing on Gross Global Happiness:
Growing inequalities lost diversity, pandemics, and climate change are only some of the serious challenges facing humanity in the coming decades. All of these crises are interconnected and we cannot confront them in isolation. Our current economic systems are failing to foster a productive and healthy balance between societal, individual, and environmental needs and goals. We need to work together at a systemic level to create the necessary change.

That is why with programs such as Gross Global Happiness the World Happiness Foundation supports the leaders from governments and organizations that are disrupting current systems by implementing new policies and initiatives that are advancing the dialogue on creating economies of happiness and well-being for all.

The Foundation stewards two UN resolutions:
UN RESOLUTION 65/309: Happiness: Towards a Holistic Approach to Development.
UN RESOLUTION 66/281: International Day of Happiness.

Event format:
Whether you participate in the virtual format or join us onsite at the University for Peace campus in Costa Rica, this event is designed to be practical and hands-on, allowing space for sharing and peer-to-peer learning. Participants will take part in interactive workshops, small group reflections, and introspective activities. There will also be plenty of spaces to encourage networking and relationship-building between participants as well!

By the end of this course, participants will have:

-Gained a practical understanding of cutting-edge frameworks that you can readily implement to lead compassionately and mindfully;
-Acquired strategies to unlock your full potential and that of those around you for lasting impact;
-Practiced valuable techniques to bring more happiness and well-being to your work and personal life;
-Developed deep relationships with a network of an amazing, global array of peers from the course.

Who should partake?:
Gross Global Happiness is purposefully designed to apply to those over a wide range of ages and career levels and across various fields. Participants often share some of the following characteristics:

-A desire to change, grow, or re-establish passion for their career
-A deep drive to push personal boundaries and give back to the community/world
-A personal fascination with understanding what makes people thrive and flourish, professionally and personally.
-The need to connect with like-minded individuals and broaden their already global mindset
-Professionals in fast-growing career fields who want to stay ahead of the curve.

Past participates Say:

"The Gross Global Happiness Summit is one of the few platforms out there that offers an opportunity for coaches, trainers, and experts in the happiness field to come together and co-create high quality and innovative programs that tackle the challenges of the 21st century, especially around anxiety and stress management, and all done in an intimate and natural setting of one of the most beautiful university campuses on Earth” – Carine Bouery / Cynchro, Founder and Managing Director/ United Arab Emirates.

“Mixing years of knowledge, studies, analysis, and investigations on Happiness, shared by multiple presenters and participants from different parts of the world, brings the richness of diversity and multiculturality that you can only experience in a non-replicable event like the Gross Global Happiness.” – Víctor Rojas/ VMware Program Specialist, Employee Referral Program / Costa Rica.

“This is an experience that makes you evaluate the important things in your life and makes you want to be a changemaker to contribute to global human happiness.” -Liliana Núñez/ General Manager Qué y Cómo, A.C. / Mexico.

Having attended both 2019 and 2020, I can see the accelerating value coming from engaging in Costa Rica and the year-long connections with participants. I find that my depth and breadth of understanding to be highly significant in strengthening my professional work and professional life. Highly recommended.” – Art Sherwood/ Western Washington University, Professor, Director-Academic Programs in Entrepreneurship and Innovation / United States.

The University for Peace

The Centre for Executive Education
Within the University for Peace, the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education was launched to deliver dynamic workshops, seminars, and training courses. In a world that needs more changemakers, these courses are designed to empower people and provide them with the skills, mindsets, and networks to impact the world positively.

The World Happiness Foundation’s purpose is to realize a world with freedom, consciousness, and happiness for all, and during this time, belonging is more important than ever. Loneliness, anxiety, and depression have increased exponentially around the globe. Beyond creating a culture of inclusion and a sense of belonging to fulfill our human needs, belonging is also the path to effective teamwork, creativity, innovation, and the way to unlock individuals' and communities' whole potential.

Flytlink Ltd Announces Availability of the Fastapn service

Aviation, Satcom and Hight RTT Enhancements

LONDON, UK, January 17, 2021 / — Today, Flytlink Ltd announced the immediate availability of the Fastapn service, in association with Transcom, enabling Travelers, Aircraft Owners, MRO’s and Airlines, utilizing and provisioning costly Aviation and Satellite Communications Internet services, to transparently access a global processing network that enhances throughput, removes inherent delay times and dramatically reduces bandwidth costs by eliminating unwanted background traffic at source.

“In tests, we monitored identified and prevented at source, as much as 52% of delivered data as unwanted and unknown background chatter,” said William Smith, CTO at Flytlink Ltd.

Positive Customer Impact

It’s very well known that communication services using systems that have high congestion or long paths, such as Geo satellites used on aircraft, do not fair well with terrestrial-based operating systems, this service dramatically enhances the user experience without any system modifications. In addition, these types of service are inherently expensive, and the Fastapn service suppresses unwanted and uncalled for data at the source.

the Fastapn service Availability

Fastapn is particularly suited to services that have high round trip times such as aviation, satellite, DVB, and high RTT connections, and by applying our service, can increase speeds, reduce delay times as well as concurrently blocking any unwanted data and background chatter at source, which can save substantial costs with your provider or pay by use service.

The Fastapn service speeds up high RTT connections by utilizing six different off-site enhancements and processes, including DTN, SmartAV DNS, Pepsal's, and several known and proprietary Algorithms. The SmartAV DNS positions you in any of the six nodes locations, ideal for any geo sensitive needs you may have such as corporate VPN's or local streaming.

There is no user software or hardware needed, but users can opt for any third party application to simplify selection of the global nodes and operating modes, and in association with Proxifier, we are able to bundle both the portable USB and installed versions, which also provides Realtime statistics, graphs, and connection information. Completely Destroys High RTT times

Oklahoma Court Orders “Tiger King” Huckster Jeff Lowe Must Relinquish All Tiger Cubs to the United States

A big cat in captivity.

Animal Wellness Action Leaders React to Court Order Directing Seizure of Tiger Cubs from Jeff Lowe’s Unlicensed “Tiger King Park” in Thackerville, Okla.

Jeff Lowe’s serial acts of animal mistreatment have demonstrated that he’s not fit to be an animal caretaker.”

— Wayne Pacelle

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2021 / — Last night, U.S. District Court Judge F. Heil III, based in the Eastern District of Oklahoma, issued a devasting judgment in favor of the United States and against exotic animal exhibitor and dealer Jeff Lowe, who was prominently featured in the Netflix sensation “Tiger King.” The United States this summer initiated a series of legal actions against Lowe for his failure to comply with the Endangered Species Act and the Animal Welfare Act.

In granting the motion from the United States for a preliminary injunction and a separate motion for a temporary restraining order, Judge Heil decided that Jeff Lowe must relinquish all of his tiger cubs (up to a year in age) and their mothers to the United States for subsequent placement at reputable sanctuaries and “shall immediately cease exhibiting animals protected by the ESA and the AWA without a valid USDA exhibitor’s license.”

The court's order, just the latest in a legal proceeding initiated in a sustained and careful set of legal maneuvers by the U.S. Department of Justice, is a tale of horrors recounting Lowe's mistreatment of animals at the Wynnewood facility that was featured in "Tiger King" and continuing at his unlicensed "Tiger King Park" in Thackerville.

"Based on the totality of the evidence presented regarding the alleged ESA violations at the Wynnewood Location and at Tiger King Park … the Court concludes that the United States can likely demonstrate that Defendants 'harmed' or 'harassed' numerous ESA protected animals," wrote Judge Heil. The court goes on to conclude that "the United States has demonstrated that Defendants are placing the health of their animals in serious danger by providing substandard care in violation of the ESA and by failing to comply with applicable AWA provisions and regulations. Defendants’ habit, pattern, and practice of providing inadequate nutrition and timely veterinary care, and failure to employ an attending veterinarian, has resulted in injury – and even death – to a number of their animals, including ESA-protected animals such as Nala, Gizzy, Dot, Mama, Lizzie, Promise, Petunia, and Young Yi.”

Animal Wellness Action president Wayne Pacelle and former Oklahoma Attorney General Drew Edmondson, the co-chairman of the National Law Enforcement Council for Animal Wellness Action and the Animal Wellness Foundation, reacted to the decision.

“Jeff Lowe’s serial acts of animal mistreatment have demonstrated that he’s not fit to be an animal caretaker,” said Pacelle. “The best course of action for him is to turn all of the animals at his Tiger King Park to reputable animal welfare groups and go into a different business that does not involve animal care.”

“The judge’s order in the federal case recounts in painful detail the misery that Jeff Lowe and his team have inflicted on animals under their care,” said General Edmondson. “He’s clearly unfit to operate the zoo he intends to open in 2021 in Thackerville.”

The U.S. House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed the Big Cat Public Safety Act on December 3rds by a vote of 272 to 114, eight months after the salacious reality television series “Tiger King” put the animal welfare and public safety issues of private ownership of tigers and lions on the American radar screen. The legislation seeks to ban the trade in big cats as pets and to halt the exploitation of the animals for cub petting at roadside zoos — two forms of commerce that have been creating a stream of big cats who soon get too big and dangerous to handle and then are discarded by the industry and face subsequent peril.

Animal Wellness Action, the Animal Wellness Foundation, and the Center for a Humane Economy express their gratitude to federal inspectors who documented abuses at Lowe’s facilities and to attorneys with the Environment and Natural Resources Division at the U.S. Department of Justice.

Monte Carlo Beach: Biodiversity Actions For 2021

Monte-Carlo Beach

Green Globe recertified Monte-Carlo Beach Hotel in 2020 along with two sister Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer properties.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2021 / — In 2020, Green Globe recertified three Monte-Carlo Société des Bains de Mer properties – Monte-Carlo Beach, Hôtel Hermitage Monte-Carlo and Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo. Each hotel is unique in itself and sustainability strategies at different properties reflect distinctive green goals for the new year and beyond.

Monte-Carlo Beach is surrounded by spectacular natural environment and lies between lush vegetation, sea and sky.

Mrs Daniele Garcelon, Managing Director of Monte-Carlo Beach said, “We are all proud of attaining Green Globe Certification once again. The hospitality industry of tomorrow will, for certain, be a sustainable one. We cannot imagine anymore developing an hotel without taking into consideration a multitude of environmental issues. For many years now, Monte-Carlo Beach has established numerous responsible tourism practices and we are well on our way to continuing our commitment by taking concrete actions as we did last year in 2020.”

Bird Protection Refuge
Ecological initiatives remain a key priority at Monte-Carlo Beach which has its own natural forest located onsite. The Pointe de la Vigie and its superb pine forest has been classified as an LPO (Ligue pour la Protection des Oiseaux) bird protection refuge since July 2019. The latest wildlife inventory listed no fewer than 20 species of birds, including 10 nesting species and 15 protected species. This site at Monte-Carlo Beach is steadily becoming an essential refuge for local biodiversity.

Reef Dyke
The hotel is home to the creation of a biodiverse reef dyke. Located underwater 100 metres from the shore, this dyke has been designed to protect the beach and allow the development of marine life within a protected area. The new space is similar to a lagoon, with a sandy beach surrounded by Posidonia and rocks. The area is suitable for swimmers who are encouraged to act responsibly and be respectful of the sea life and their habitat.

Protection of Mediterranean Sea
Monte-Carlo Beach is committed to the development of a strategy to manage the Marine Protected Areas of the Principality of Monaco under the aegis of the Monegasque Association of Nature Protection. As with all the hotels located on the seafront, Monte-Carlo Beach actively participates in this plan by preserving its 1.7 km of coastline – La Réserve du Larvotto – which represents a quartar of the Monegasque coast.

Eden Lodge Madagascar Inspires Local Community

Eden Lodge Madagascar

Rojo Rakotomalala, Operations Manager at Eden Lodge outlines the resort’s sustainability vision.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 16, 2021 / — Green Globe Platinum member Eden Lodge Madagascar remains committed to its sustainability goals in 2021. The resort provides sustainability training for staff members and supports community initiatives specifically dealing with better educational outcomes for local children.

Rojo Rakotomalala, Operations Manager at Eden Lodge details the resort’s sustainability vision.

Diverse Workforce
Employees at the resort are 100% Malagasy citizens comprised of 68% local residents, 20% from Nosy Be, 8% Ambanja and 4% Antananarivo. Team members from different regions bring untold benefits to the resort enriching its operations and guest services and Malagasy culture in general.

Eden Lodge is continuously looking for ways to engage the local community and increase regional economic revenue through its local purchasing policy and local employment policy. The Lodge purchases goods and products from local suppliers and recruits locally as much as possible. In order to maintain a high quality service, we also employ staff from regions nearby. Hiring people from diverse backgrounds and cultures, brings a fresh array of perspective in the workplace, such as better problem-solving solutions and links to new innovation. In addition, employee turnover is reduced as ultimately employees who feel accepted and valued are much less likely to leave. The turnover rate of the company was just 4% in 2019. Finally, having a more diverse team helps the resort gain a broader understanding of our customers, specifically what they want and what they look for when visiting our resort and Madagascar.

Sustainability Training
In regard to Sustainability Training Programs, staff are paying close attention to caring for their environment. Successive training sessions over the years have enabled employees to understand that biodiversity is the main motivation for guests to stay at the Lodge. And that environmental degradation would therefore have a direct impact on their employment and economic prospects in the short, medium and long term. Furthermore, training for all staff about the company’s new objectives is held semi-annually and a follow-up meeting to review progress with the department heads is held every Thursday afternoon.

Educational Assistance in the Region
Eden Lodge Madagascar first initiated educational community assistance in 2009 and was in charge of running the entire schooling process at different local schools. In order to improve the quality of education for local students, the resort decided to work with a French partner DOCENDA in 2012. The Lodge continues to work in partnership with DOCENDA to educate children in the villages of Anjanozano, Ambatomaranitra and Ambatokirintsana by offering different types of assistance.

Anjanozano School caters for preschool, primary and secondary students. As the largest school, on top of administrative and logistical support, financial aid is also given to pay half the salary for a nurse at the infirmary. In addition, professional expertise is provided to help make students aware of issues such as environmental management and child labour conditions.

Ambatomaranitra and Ambatokirintsana Primary Schools receive administrative assistance with student records, office paperwork and salary payments. Logistical support for purchases and transportation services are also provided. One teacher received a grant at Ambatomaranitra School and school maintenance costs were paid for at Ambatokirintsana School.

Eden Lodge is pleased with progress made at all the schools over the years. Last year in 2020, pupils at Anjanozano school had a 100% success rate in primary and secondary national certification exams. This is an outstanding achievement that deserves commendation.

Future Plans
Eden Lodge Madagascar looks forward to the next 10 years of its sustainability journey and remains dedicated to tackling new green challenges. Caring for staff members and improving education for future generations will continue to be priorities for successful economic development. From an environmental perspective, the resort hopes to change and upgrade to photovoltaic generator equipment in the future.

Tarmac Delay Rule – Final Rule / Regulatory Impact Analysis – DOT Issues Final Rule

The U.S. Department of Transportation is issuing a final rule to modify U.S. and foreign air carrier obligations with respect to tarmac delays.

Daily Airline Filings – The Airline Regulatory Information Hub”


USA, January 15, 2021 / — The primary purpose of this rule is to implement changes to the FAA Extension Act regarding carrier obligations during an excessive tarmac delay. Nearly all of the provisions in this final rule are deregulatory, which would generate cost savings, or clarifications, which would result in no economic impact. Minimal costs may be associated with three provisions requiring carriers to: (1) report the length of the excessive tarmac delay if the length is not otherwise represented by the data listed under 14 CFR 244.3(a); (2) collect a new data point for the start time of a tarmac delay for enforcement purposes for departing flights, which would be the time the main aircraft door closes; and (3) collect a new data point for the time that carriers begin to return the aircraft to a suitable disembarkation point to deplane passengers on departing flights.

The Department expects the rule to generate cost savings and benefits to carriers and consumers due primarily to the new standard for departure delays. This rule also includes provisions to make conforming changes to carrier tarmac delay reporting and record keeping requirements, which reduce the burden on carriers. These cost savings and benefits are minimal and difficult to quantify, however, because annual tarmac delays have become relatively rare since the implementation of the 2009 Tarmac Delay Rule. In particular, the number of domestic tarmac delays lasting more than three hours declined from 1,081 in 2005 (15.1 delays per 100,000 flights) to 282 in 2019 (3.5 delays per 100,000 flights). The regulatory evaluation for the final rule has been placed in the docket.

Airfare Advertising – Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking – Seeks Comment on the DOT's Full Fare Advertising Rule

The U.S. Department of Transportation is seeking comment on the Department’s airfare advertising rule, also known as the “full fare” rule.

Daily Airline Filings – The Airline Regulatory Information Hub”


USA, January 15, 2021 / — The U.S. Department of Transportation is seeking comment on the Department’s airfare advertising rule, also known as the “full fare” rule, which requires U.S. and foreign air carriers and ticket agents advertising airfares to state the entire price to be paid by the customer, inclusive of all mandatory taxes and fees. The full fare rule also prohibits sellers of air transportation from displaying in airfare advertisements charges that are included within the airfare more prominently or in the same or larger font size than the total single price. This rulemaking examines whether the full fare advertising rule imposes unnecessary or costly burdens on carriers and consumers, whether a revision of the rule is warranted, and, if so, how the rule should be revised.

The full fare advertising rule was intended to prevent consumer confusion or deception by advertisements of low base fares that did not reflect the total cost of air transportation. To assess the need and justification for this regulation, the Department must consider how changes to its regulation of airfare advertising would impact the likelihood of consumer confusion or deception, competition in the marketplace, and whether it would permit sellers of air transportation to compete freely on the value and quality of services they offer while preventing anticompetitive or predatory behaviors.
