The U.S. Became the No. 1 Wine Drinking Country by Volumn

Today, I am glad to share with you that the U.S. has become the No. 1 wine drinking country by volume. This should be an exciting piece of news for Upstate New York. The Finger Lakes Region is famous for wine and great outdoor sceneries, especially in the summer and fall. I also think we have many very nice independent restaurants in the region. How can we make Upstate New York the place to go for wine and food? New York City has become the No. 1 destination for tourists. How can we further develop the travel/tourism industry in Upstate New York? What are your suggestions?

  1. I think that this is great news for Upstate New York. This piece of information goes to show that our economy, no matter how slowly, is indeed on the rise. To help develop the travel/tourism industry in Upstate New York I would suggest multiple things. (1) Sell the scenery and atmosphere of Upstate New York. I think there has to be a specific approach to this; it should be targeted to those who want a romantic getaway in a clean, fresh environment that has much to offer. New York City may bait in tourists because of its fun and exciting allure, but Upstate New York could bait in tourists with its serene allure. (2) Make Upstate New York more accessible. New York City is the No. 1 destination for tourists partly because you can access it through almost any means of transportation; by car, bus, plane or even boat. If there were more means of transportation as well as more frequent times of travel, it would be easier to get tourists to the attraction (wineries of Upstate New York). (3) “Dumb” the wine down. It seems that there are many individuals who are intimidated by how wine is presented, and therefore do not order it. If you want to sell more, I would present it in a simple manner that an average or even a not-so-average wine drinker could understand. Lastly, (4) offer wine and food pairings and describe why they are suitable pairs. Interesting and educating tourists on the food and wine they are consuming will entice them to try more.

The challenges of SB 93 (California Senate Bill No. 93) will impose on the employers and their human resource management team (by Brittany Schaffer)

The COVID-19 pandemic started in early 2020, and it has caused massive changes within a short period of time. One of the most rememberable effects of the COVID-19 pandemic was that businesses had to come to a complete halt, forcing them to lay off employees. California's unemployment rates went up.  Now that the stay-at-home orders have lifted, people start to come out. Businesses are now reopening, looking to rehire their laid-off employees. Before the pandemic, employers had the option of recalling only a certain number of laid-off employees they would want to rehire based on employees' job performance. That option had been changed after Governor Gavin Newsome signed into law - Senate Bill 93, which went into effect on April 16th, 2021. The California Senate Bill No. 93 (SB 93) According to SB 93, companies in specific industries, mainly the hospitality industry, have the obligation to provide job opportunities in written form to qualified employees being laid off due to COVI

The complicated situation of tattoos in the workplace (by Harry Law)

Tattoos are a form of expression that convey the individuality of their owners. They can represent a multitude of things, like a tie to a family member, a favorite quote with a special meaning, or even a favorite cartoon character. Tattoos also can carry great cultural and/or religious significance. Every tattoo is unique and says something about the individual person who wears it. The problem that many companies face is when a tattoo is considered appropriate and when it should be covered.  Employees are after all the faces of a company, so the tattoos on their bodies are connected to and represent that company as well. Some workplaces have instituted rules and regulations when it comes to their employees’ tattoos, but there can be negative consequences when a company goes too far in telling their employees what they can and cannot do with their own bodies. The Disney Company has recently changed its policy on tattoos. Disney’s goal is to create a magical, fantasy experience for their
