The Last Night of the Proms Comes to an Olympic-Slanted Close in 2012

The closing event of the world’s greatest classical musical festival will this year feature an Olympic Fanfare from American composer, conductor and pianist John Towner Williams. The Last Night of the Proms will coincide with the final weekend of the Paralympic Games and the end to this great summer of British regalia and sport.

The Last Night of the Proms, on 8 September at the Royal Albert Hall, is the most popular and widely accessible concert of the BBC Proms. It followers a lighter note, appealing to more popular tastes with British favourites such as Jerusalem and the National Anthem interspersed with classical masterpieces.

Tickets for the event are hard to come by – most are presold via ballot well in advance – but a limited number of standing tickets will be available on the night for £5 each.

The BBC Proms in Park offers an alternative. Taking place in Hyde Park at the same times as the Last Night of the Proms, this event will feature Alfie Boe , Il Divo, Kylie, Royal Choral Society, BBC Concert Orchestra and London Gospel Choir all presented by Sir Terry Wogan. Gates open at 3.30pm and tickets are priced at £35.

To avoid travelling unnecessary distances to and from Hyde Park and the Royal Albert Hall LondonTown suggests using its new hotel search and booking feature: HotelMap.

HotelMap can make finding and booking hotels near Hyde Park quick and easy. HotelMap displays all of London ‘s hotels on an easy-to-use map of the capital. Users can drop and drag the map to find their desired location or they can use the ‘find’ facility to search for a particular landmark, hotel, tube station or area. Users can filter on price, and all hotels will be displayed with star rating, discounts and current rate for the date searched. Users can book directly through HotelMap without incurring any costs.

Two hotels available on 8 September close to the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park are the NH Harrington Hall and the Grange Strathmore Hotel. Both are four-star properties located just a few minutes’ walk from the Royal Albert Hall and Hyde Park; prices start at £135 per room, per night for the NH Harrington Hall and £99 per room, per night for the Grange Strathmore Hotel.

The Mayor’s Thames Festival Gets an Olympic Boost This Year

Every September the Mayor’s Thames Festival celebrates the continued importance of the River Thames. This year this free event is getting an Olympic boost as it coincides with the Olympic Closing ceremony bringing an end to the Paralympic Games. This boost comes in the form of a euphoric atmosphere, bigger crowds and even more live riverside performances.

Over the course of this two-day event, from 8-9 September, there will be street entertainment, art installations, music and dancing dotted along the Thames riverbank between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge. The spectacular finale will be a show-stopping fireworks display eating through more than one ton or pyrotechnics in just 10 minutes.

Despite being one of London ‘s biggest and greatest free events, it is one of the lesser-known happenings outside of the capital. This year the extra publicity given to the event due to its Olympic tie-up should elevate its status outside of the capital.

For visitors to London LondonTown.com is advising booking accommodation early to avoid disappointment. LondonTown.com has secured exclusive online discounts at some of the most luxurious, centrally located hotels in London including the four-star Crowne Plaza London The City and the exclusive Me London Hotel, a five-star property in Covent Garden.

Rooms at the modern, spacious Crowne Plaza London The City start at £117 per night and it boasts an enviable location just minutes from the Thames and right in the middle of all the action. There are babysitting and crib facilities available for families and a late checkout time of 12pm.

The Me Hotel is an ultra-high end property in the heart of theatreland that opened last month. This lavish hotel has floor-to-ceiling windows and a rooftop bar, both ideal spots for viewing the fireworks display. If you want to escape somewhere quieter, the marble-lined champagne bar is perfect. Due to the high-end nature of this property room rates are higher. Prices start at £500 per night including a discount from LondonTown.com.

London Hotels Cut Prices for Hyde Park Proms Event

The world-famous Last Night of the Proms will be shown at special outdoor events all over the UK, as Proms in the Park returns this September 8th.

Living up to the popular perception of the closing night as classical music for the masses, the celebrations are to be screened in Glasgow, Belfast, Cardiff and, most famously, Hyde Park. Each screening of the action from the Royal Albert Hall will be built around a live concert, featuring appearances from major artists, both classical and pop.

London’s Proms in the Park is offering more than five hours of music, hosted by Sir Terry Wogan and featuring pintsized pop star Kylie Minogue. Other acts include Alfie Boe, Il Divo, the Royal Choral Society and the BBC Orchestra.

The show starts at 5.15pm. Tickets cost £35 and are available via LondonTown.com. The website is also offering major discounts on London hotels in the area, many of them within easy walking distance of Hyde Park.

The Thistle Marble Arch Hotel is among the London hotels on offer, with a 91% discount available for early bookings on double rooms. The reduction brings the cost of a night’s stay in this very smart West London hotel down to just £90. The hotel is around ten minutes walk from Hyde Park, at the end of Oxford Street.

The four star Lancaster London Hotel, on Lancaster Terrace, offers an exceptional location overlooking Hyde Park and is currently offering a 70% reduction on deluxe double rooms, bringing the nightly rate down to £159.

See LondonTown.com for more information on Proms in the Park, and to view more discounted London hotels.

IAPAM Announces New Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training September 22-23, 2012

The IAPAM announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, September 22-23, 2012, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Las Vegas, Nevada, USA – August 9, 2012 — The growth in minimally-invasive, less expensive anti-aging treatments such as Botox ®, dermal fillers, and hCG for weight loss continues to grow in the second half of 2012. From family physicians to internists to obstetricians & gynecologists, many physicians have decided to add these services to their existing practices. To meet this need, the IAPAM announces the dates for its next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, September 22-23, 2012, in Scottsdale, Arizona.

As reported in Medical Economics, the increase in interest in the field of aesthetic medicine makes sense when one considers that, “the bulk of cosmetic procedure clients are the very people who dominate the patient panels of internists and family physicians. Women aged 35 to 50 years have 44% of these procedures, and women between the ages of 51 and 65 have an additional 20%.”

To help physicians add these non-surgical modalities to a practice, and enter this lucrative cash-based market, the IAPAM offers the industry’s leading dermatologist-led Aesthetic Medicine Symposium with Botox ® Training in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the IAPAM’s September 22-23 Symposium (http://iapam.com/aesthetic-medicine-symposium-botox-training), physicians will receive everything they need, to start safely and profitably offering Botox ® and other in-demand aesthetic medicine procedures right away.

“About 5 million nonsurgical cosmetic procedures were performed by aestheticians last year, frequently in a spa setting,” says Jeff Russell, executive director of the IAPAM (http://www.iapam.com). “Many primary care physicians (PCPs) have decided to meet the demand for these services by actively controlling the “med” part of these “medspas”.”

Therefore, the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposium is specifically designed by physicians, for physicians, to educate and train on the top cosmetic procedures like: Botox ®, dermal filler injections, lasers for skin rejuvenation & laser hair removal, medical microdermabrasion, and medical grade chemical peels. The IAPAM’s September 22-23 Symposium has integrated the most important clinical, aesthetic medicine business, and Botox ® training ALL into one weekend, including:

– dedicated instruction from board-certified dermatologists, who are true experts of the skin and cosmetic injectables;
– hands-on practice in the best injection techniques;
– Botox ® training at a multi-million dollar medical practice, not in a hotel room; and
– an environment that does not allow exhibitors, giving physicians more time for education.

Attendees also have the opportunity to:

1. Attend the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Practice Start-Up Workshop (http://iapam.com/aesthetic-practice-startup-workshop) on Monday, September 24, 2012, a program highlighting the latest information on medspa business development and social media marketing.
2. Attend the IAPAM’s hCG Training (http://iapam.com/physician-weight-loss-training-using-hormones) on Friday, September 21, 2012, which covers hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) for weight loss, prescription appetite suppressants, ketogenic diet based programs, meal replacements and B6/12 injections.

Since 2006, over 1000 physicians (MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs, DDSs etc.) and their staff (RNs, MAs, practice managers, etc.), have attended the IAPAM’s Aesthetic Medicine Symposiums and hCG Training seminars, and been certified by the IAPAM. Also, the year of personalized practice support and the wealth of resources included with one’s training, definitely make the IAPAM’s programs different than the others.

The dates for the next Aesthetic Medicine Symposium are September 22-23, 2012 in Scottsdale, Arizona. For additional information or to register for the September 22-23 Aesthetic Medicine Symposium, please contact the IAPAM at 1-800-219-5108 ext. 704, or visit http://www.iapam.com.

AAA: Pension Fund Researchers Need To Take Time Over Alternatives

A new article in the Financial Times has pointed out the fact that many pension funds and other institutional investors may need to take on more research staff if they want to make the most of alternative investment opportunities. This has led AAA to warn pension funds that they may want to think twice about bringing their research in house.

Boston, MA, USA, August 9, 2012 — A new article in the Financial Times has pointed out the fact that many pension funds and other institutional investors may need to take on more research staff if they want to make the most of alternative investment opportunities. This has led Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) to warn pension funds that they may want to think twice about bringing their research in house.

This view was reflected by Peter Urbani, who used to work for Infiniti Capital, and who spoke to the FT about his experiences. He said, “The recent acquisition of Sovereign by Mercer is an indication that pension funds are starting to look at alternatives, but realising that they need to do it internally.”

He explained that turning to alternatives meant that researchers would have to carry out more in-depth due diligence than when dealing with traditional asset classes, which equates to more work.

A growing number of large investment institutions, such as pension funds are turning increasingly towards the idea of alternative investment. Following the economic crisis, investors are keen to receive something tangible in exchange for their investments and are also interested in diversifying their portfolios against risk.

One option is direct forestry investment. This can be done by buying up physical sections of forest or plantation and cashing in the profits once trees grow and are harvested for timber. However, investing through a firm like Greenwood Management means investors get all the benefits of timberland investment, but will start to see returns on their investment much sooner.

Timberland investment has become extremely popular as it has regularly outperformed stocks and shares and provides a very effective hedge against inflation. What’s more is that if, when the time come to sell the timber you have been growing come, but the market price isn’t right, investors can simply hang on to their investment and watch it grown some more.

About Alternative Asset Analysis:
The remit of Alternative Asset Analysis is to analyse and provide news on the global performance of a wide range of alternative asset classes including, but not restricted to, commodities, real estate, forestry, foreign exchange, hedge funds, private equity and venture capital.

FRA Welcomed USA Today Endorsement of Timber Investment

FRA has welcomed a new article published by USA Today predicting a boom in timber investment returns if the real estate industry returns to a strong position.

Seattle, United States, August 9, 2012 — Forestry Research Associates (FRA) has welcomed a new article published by USA Today predicting a boom in timber investment returns if the real estate industry returns to a strong position.

The housing collapse in the US brought with it a fall in timber prices. Now things are looking up again and, as a result, timber stocks are looking rather attractive once more, according to USA Today’s John Waggoner. Since timber futures prices’ lowest spot in early 2009, they have increased by an impressive 93 per cent. Although this is slightly less than the recovery in the Standard & Poor’s 500 index, the improvement in the real estate market indicates a good reason to buy up timber REITs.

In the past 12 months, new home starts have jumped by 23 per cent and the fact that housing is now a lot more affordable than the last time housing starts increased, suggests that the turnaround will last longer and be more notable this time, claims FRA.

The forestry investment advocacy group supports the USA Today article, claiming that timber REITs are very attractive, but that there are also other options for those who are interested in investing in timber. “We promote investment in sustainably managed plantations, such as those operated in Brazil by firms like Greenwood Management,” stated FRA’s analysis partner, Peter Collins.

These plantations allow investors to directly invest in a piece of forestry land for as little as $10,000, which is a lot less than is involved when buying forestry independently. Then, firms like Greenwood manage these plantations for the owners and start paying returns to investors as soon as money starts coming in from any mature trees on the entire plantation.

Mr Collins claims that this option mean that investors enjoy the diversification benefits of forestry investment, but also get to see returns sooner than they would through other direct investment routes.

AAA Welcomes Report on Bransons impact Investing efforts

AAA has welcomed a report into Richard Branson’s impact investing efforts.

Boston, MA, August 08, 2012 – Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) has welcomed a report into Richard Branson’s impact investing efforts. The article, published by Marketwatch.com, talks about how Virgin boss, Richard Branson, has taken a huge interest in impact investing and has launched Virgin Unite to try to help boost its popularity among regular investors.

The celebrity ambassador for social enterprise investment recently held a promotional shark-swimming activity in Cancun, which attempted to promote small businesses such as the shark-swimming trips that help to raise eco-awareness. The trips illustrated how investors can help small social enterprises and family business in developing countries to thrive, according to AAA. “They help communities and local environments to flourish, while investors start to see returns on their investment when the small businesses begin to grow and pay back loans,” explained AAA’s partner Anthony Johnson.

Richard Branson recently published a book called Screw Business As Usual. He stated, “I have written this book for those who, at the same time as wanting to develop a business and make a living, also want to do more to help people and the planet.

“It’s a vibrant sea change from the way business was always done, when financial profit alone was the driving force.” The book is intended to back up the work of Virgin Unite, which is a non-profit organization intended to help guide investors towards suitable social enterprise that need investment.

Jean Oelwang, the CEO of the organization, explained, “We basically look at ways philanthropy and charity can play a role in kickstarting new markets.”

AAA, an advocate of alternative and impact investing, supports many kinds of ethical investment, including timberland investment. Mr Johnson, explained, “Investing in sustainable forestry land through organizations like Greenwood Management, for example, can help to reduce deforestation by providing alternatives to illegally sourced timber. Greenwood Management runs plantations on non-native trees species in Brazil and Canada.
