That Becker's personal and professional life begin to show their wear and tear -- and the guys' reactions to and responses to the tumult around them -- it's a bonus to see what they'll do in the face of further adversity. Because the characters are so clear and complicated, the play's story shines even more. It's a wonder that the themes of the play -- urban renewal, class tensions, broken dreams, disappointing family members -- come through loud and clear on their own without a single pointed, knowing sentence aimed at outlining the themes. Wilson knew not to undermine the goal by spoon-feeding the audience anything, having them pay attention to what's happening behind the scenes as much as what's plainly in front of them. The play explores more than just what you see at face value. There's complexity not only in the characters themselves, but also in how and when they interact with one another.

Now through February 17, you can earn an 80% bonus when you purchase or gift Hilton HHonors points . This isn't a tiered promotion as we saw several months ago, but to earn the extra rewards, you'll need to buy a minimum of 5,000 points. HHonors points usually cost 1 cent apiece to purchase, but with the 80% bonus the price goes down to about 0.56 cents per point. TPG values Hilton HHonors points at 0.5 cents apiece , so you'd be paying just slightly more than the valuation rate per point. As always, you can purchase up to 80,000 HHonors points in a calendar year, meaning if you haven't bought any of these rewards in 2017 you could max this promotion out by spending $800 to walk away with 144,000 points. Those points are worth $720 based on TPG's valuations, but depending on where you redeem them, you could be getting more or less out of your rewards purchase.

Be sure to adjust any of the assumptions I make to fit with your individual travel situation. Also, it’s important to note that my analysis is based on having earned the status in 2016 and continuing to travel a comparable amount in 2017. However, I do include a link to an Excel spreadsheet toward the end of the post for those of you starting from scratch and planning to earn Southwest elite status during the year. In addition, I’m following some similar assumptions in arriving at the numbers below: You earn 20% more Tier Qualifying Points (TQPs) than the minimum required for the given level. You spend 15 cents per TQP. As always, you should modify these details based on how much you’re planning to travel in 2017. Three final pieces of information. First, since you’ll earn bonus points as an elite member with Southwest, I’m using TPG’s most recent valuations to calculate their value (1.

Both pots weigh in at nine pounds (about 4kg) each, and are priced at RM468 and RM688 respectively. Prices are inclusive of GST, while a 10% service charge will be added for dine-in. According to Dragon-i marketing executive December Kueh, the prices have not changed from last year, even though Dragon-i is now offering even higher premium ingredients such as abalone from Australia instead of from Chile as in previous years. For those who wish to celebrate at home, the treasures are packed in a high quality steel pot that is made for easy reheating before serving. Each pot also comes in a gold takeaway bag for easy transport and also as a classy gift. As an added bonus this year, Dragon-i is also offering a special takeaway promotion of three dishes with the purchase of a Prosperity Abalone Treasure Pot. The dishes are the vegetarian shark’s fin and seafood soup at RM108 instead of RM138, the fried glutinous rice with waxed meat at RM68 instead of RM88, and the assorted roast meat platter (above) at RM128 instead of RM168.

I decided to remain standing, as I was still wearing my winter jacket. In doing so, I was waiting for the flight attendant to ask if she could take my jacket. I waited till it started feeling a bit awkward. As I noticed other business travelers being helped, it felt even more awkward. I didn't want to wait any further so I asked one of the flight attendants to just kindly take my jacket. She said, "yes, of course", at this point I didn't feel valued. During the end of last year, I decided to get a golden credit card. I filled out the application and waited for two weeks for the card to arrive by mail. As a bonus, the credit card company had promised me free visits to airport lounges. When I did finally receive the card, it had a sticker on it instructing me to call the customer service number to verify my card. The number was available only on weekdays during (Nordic) office hours.

Slim Jxmmi and Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd are not good at delivering the weather. They are also our new favorite weathermen. The two showed up on French channel TMC to deliver the forecast for both France and (naturally) their hometown of Tupelo, Mississippi. Even better, it's all dubbed over in French to ensure that no matter what language you speak, you will be deeply confused.

If you're using it for video recording in particular its likely that youll be pleased with the results, if somewhat overwhelmed by the level of control on offer. Even so, with 4K video recording cropping up on many cheaper interchangeable lens cameras, the FZ2500 / FZ2000 does appear to be targeted towards a particular niche of photographers, those who need a broad level of video control together with an expansive optic. Those using the FZ2500 / FZ2000 for stills will also find plenty to like. The camera's autofocus system is excellent, and does a great job of tracking moving subjects, while images show good dynamic range and low noise throughout the lower end of the ISO scale, with optical aberrations well controlled. Both the EVF and LCD are fine performers in all key areas, while the responsive touchscreen is a huge bonus for ease of use and focusing, particularly when holding the camera in less conventional orientations.

Travel to one of the three cities must be completed by the same date. Unfortunately, this offer isn't valid for existing bookings. Your TrueBlue number must be entered at the time of booking, and you must be registered for the promo. There's a opportunity to earn some pretty valuable TrueBlue points here. Say, for example, you book a round-trip ticket from New York (JFK) to Havana (HAV) for $391 round-trip. If you register for the promotion, you'd earn 1,173 bonus TrueBlue points, which are worth $12-$16 based on TPG's most recent valuations — and that's not including any bonus you'd get from the fare, elite status or by using a JetBlue co-branded card like the JetBlue Plus Card . Ultimately, this is a pretty nice bonus from JetBlue to encourage travel to Cuba . If you've been thinking about booking a trip Cuba, consider registering for this promotion and booking through JetBlue to earn some bonus TrueBlue points.
