This video transcendence features an exclusive live performance of Kurt Vile’s “Gold Tone” and takes a deep dive into his higher consciousness. It’s here that we also explore the meditative states of artists Travis Millard and Gemma O’Brien and careen into the minds of Volcom riders Dane Burmen, Bryan Iguchi and Ryan Burch as they explore the perfection of the cushiony dimension. Volcom was founded on the belief that there is a higher level of consciousness to be found within one’s self through the internal and external journeys that board-sports, music, art and film provide. We call these finite moments of enlightenment… ‘Spiritual Intoxication’.With that, we bring you the second installment of True to This.https://sp2.img.hsyaolu.com.cn/wp-shlf1314/C2060/IMG16730.jpg” alt=”last_img” /> read more

Andrea Coscelli, CMA chief executive, said: “Holidaymakers must feel sure they’re getting the deal they expected, whether that’s securing the discount promised or receiving reliable information about availability of rooms. Hotel booking websites have been told to stop “one room left” warnings designed to pressure holidaymakers into booking, under a crackdown by competition watchdogs.Such warnings are currently used by the UK’s most popular booking sites including Expedia and Booking.com to encourage customers to book sooner rather than later.Following an investigation into holiday booking sites the Competition and Markets Authority said it would take firms to court if they did not end unfair and misleading practices.The watchdog said it had “widespread” concerns about a number of sites, which it has declined to name, including the role commission paid by hotels could influence their rankings and the extent to which they included all costs in the upfront price or introduced them later in the booking.–– ADVERTISEMENT ––Pressure selling, involving claims about how many people were looking at the same room, how many rooms were left or how long a deal would be available, could also create a false impression of availability or rush consumers into making a decision, the CMA said. read more
