Following a cash free merger announced last week the group will retain the name the hawks transparent parent company. Ns more and include the hawks in gleneagles in scotland and ecorse ten lifestyle brands including montreal s. l. s. monaco's executive editor. Josh bennett spoke to sharon has richer who ceo and founder of ns more. We've had a busy last couple of weeks and months the lockdown and we're we're delighted to emerge creating new joint venture with i call. Who the europe's largest hotel company and part of this joint venture really is a merger of their lifestyle brands alongside our lifestyle brands and collectively. This new joint venture becomes the world's largest and fastest growing lifestyle hospitality platform which is incredibly exciting. Because i've spent the last decade building and this move from ground up piece by piece having taken the halston from one hotel. In east london to cross europe and across the us will recently and of course taking taking gleneagles and reimagined it to the glorious playground once was in the one thousand nine hundred ninety s the geneticists or the sort of discussions with our core started several months ago. What was interesting. As part of our discussions was really getting to know. Akwa chairman and ceo. Sebastian buzzer and core of lifestyle. And what was cliff for them was. They were very keen to create an autonomous entity because they realized early on that really have lifestyle brands flourish. Create lifestyle brands that authentic until stories. It needed to be outside of a larger web or larger corporation and the second we both aligned and agreed on that vision. It made the beginnings of this joint venture incredibly easy to form the basis of if you think about lifestyle generally or son hotels and these are hotels that have a mission they have a porpoise. They tell stories through incredible interiors. They have restaurants and bars that are local favorites. They are more than just a hotel. They have incredible cultural programming. They have amazing events and this segment which has now become lifestyle has been one of the faucets going segments across the hotel industry. You know somebody always had global ambitions and scale at mind. The second this pandemic hit. I knew i needed to do something that was created. I need to do something that was slightly out of the box. And that field my desire and more to create this joint venture with that cool because what it's now done is allowed us scale like we've never historically had an accessing kids and regions that would never be able to access. You guys have done a great job of i. Suppose bringing people together selling people to people in in beautiful spaces. The other day you talked about there was growth. And you've undertaken particularly with the hawks. Turn group impressive and dare. I say fairly aggressive growth already. I don't know rome's number ten. Maybe i've got my numbers wrong but a a tremendous surge in the number of hotels and the identity of that brand being built around the world. Could you may be hone in on that vision. Little bit i mean. How many hotels do you want to open the markets. That you find most alluring as you look out at the end of twenty twenty and i suppose into q one q two q three next year. If there's one thing. I realized over the last six seven months is brands with purpose brands with a mission matter. And we've seen that. Even though our revenues have been hauled and some of our some of our hotels had to reduce capacity way doing substantially better than any of our competitors in that neighborhood purely because off brand stands out and i think it's me so much confidence that as we come out of this pandemic that hotels that so of the local communities that are in hotels that have more than just a bed for a night hotels that a narped utilitarian law substantially longer in those brands will live a lot longer. And that's giving me a lot of confidence that what we managed do so successfully in ten cities around the world with our collection of oh tells if we can now take that formula. And i don't mean formula in the sense of you re create things in exact the same way. The forming of frost is more about the mindset. How do you create products. You create brands that kind of inspire inspire discovery. And we've learned so much all these markets that we've kind of grown and it's really allowed us to hone in on what each hawks ten means in each of those communities so now we've got an opportunity to take the hawks ten david larger platform and even more communities so they can get a sense of what these hotels what a culturally relevant hotel feels like in some of the most exciting destinations in cities around the world. What's exciting for me about the future. Is that all learnings. We've had about taking the oxygen from one to a dozen two dozen all the learnings. We've had about reimagining gleneagles to nineteen twenty s glorious past those are amazing skills that we can now hold on on a wider global portfolio. There's some incredible brands in this portfolio. Such as twenty five hours mama shelter. That are incredibly authentic that have found a lead and i'm incredibly excited to now work with those founders and the founding teams to make those brands the best they could be and there's a bunch of brands that core of created through the in house teams and i can't wait to work with them to make those brands the best they could be. So we've got a really unique opportunity on a global scale now to harness all the amazing ways of how we worked as more the last decade in terms of course curiosity intensive of obsessive design in terms of really rethinking the digital experience in terms of partnering collaborating with incredible designers and artists and makers around the world to take that insight that knowledge that skill base that process and now redo it all over again across the portfolio brands. And i'm incredibly excited to showcase that not with ten hotels at twenty zero tells but hopefully several hundred hotels that we could build around the world over the next couple of years.

Laura Jackson Of Towpath shares Her Roast Chicken Recipe

"Name is Laura. Jackson I'M The, head chef and CO owner of Towpath, which is on the regent's canal in East London. And I'd like to share one of my favorite recipes with today, which is race chicken. Obviously. A very, very simple recipe but I think one that is quite hard to pull off properly and. Rest of chickens in my life. So I think by now I think got the recipe down to T. it's a great one to cook at home because it is so simple and it's a crowd pleaser suits quick to prepare, and the reason I chose this recipe is because while one is totally delicious but. For me my sort of philosophy and the way I love to cook is not anything and the great thing about roast chicken is once you've served the chicken, you can then make a stock with the caucus. which you to make lots of different stews and soups and broths, and then there's also tends to be quite a lot of meet the you miss from carving, which can then be used for another thing. So essentially, you can get three or four dishes from one thing which makes me very, very happy. So all you need to do is get roast chicken. Of Asli, I would say, definitely. To get chicken that has had a good life. So free range organic or from a farm where you know that the having a nice time and I used to always roast chickens with butter but then maybe seven or eight years ago I had to give up Daria had some health issues. So I switched to using olive oil and actually feel that it is much better than using butter because the crispiness of the skin, you can take it to another level because. The burning properties of olive oil much lower than butter. So definitely go for olive oil. For Chicken you definitely want one big juicy lemon, and then head of garlic. If you've got some Tarragon, obey leaves to stuff up. It's bumpy can do that as well but that's not huge thing. So really super super simple. What you want to do I get your oven I would say almost as hot as possible. Obviously if you've got very strong oven, I would do it at about kind of t twenty to thirty, and then I would cut the garlic in half and. Stick. It up. It's bomb with some bay leaves. Tarragon if you have. Cut The lemon half squeeze it all the juice out like you can possibly get out and squeeze all over the chicken and again, then put the lemon up. It's bum. It just cooks more evenly if you've got lots of things stuffed up inside it. Then I put lots of pepper and some Odin Sea salt, and then a really really generous gluck of olive oil. Than, just get your hands in just rub it all over. And then pop it in the oven breasts side up an idea between twenty five to thirty five minutes at a super super high heat. Basically, this is the stage where you want the skin to go. Really really crispy. So, anywhere between that time, and then once the skin is super crispy, you want to turn the heat down really really low. So I turn it down to about one forty, one fifty. And then Cook it for another twenty five to thirty five minutes. So total, you want to cook the chicken for an hour. So if it's super high for twenty five, then you delay for thirty five. Vice Versa and then you basically take out I. don't based or touch it during its cooking and let it rest for a good twenty minutes to half an hour and then it's good to go.

Am they're about seven and the previous evening and have you been charged I have been released under instigation so I haven't been charged but there is every likelihood that I will be charged it just depends on how this guy is obviously not more arrested in time so they obviously let's move chance that we may not get charged but I feel like if you go to pick yourself arrestable position unique to accepted that that is the reality many it's probably happened did you expect that you would be arrested when you actually set off for London yes I'd had training I've taken uh-huh nonviolent direct action NBD trainings that I was prepared for that to happen I feel like at someone you identity dependence the D.

Thomas Cook collapses, leaving passengers stranded.

"Coming up on the news a Thomas Cook Airline in collapsed triggers largest peacetime repatriation in UK history Boris Johnson declines to comment on claims he awarded what is public funds to a friend and UN chief urges action to make Earth Carbon neutral by twenty fifty. It's Monday September twenty three. I'm Anthony Davis. A British tour operator rated Thomas Cook fell victim to multiple setbacks including shifting travel habits the rise of online booking sites the sinking pound and even unusually really hot weather that encouraged few northern Europeans to travel specific problems of its own like a one point six billion pounds debt pile made it less able to to react to change it all added up to a perfect storm that leads the one hundred and seventy eight year old company to cease operations. Elliott this morning stranding ending hundreds of thousands of travelers analysts said Thomas Cook which wrote a package holiday boom that started in the mid eighties was too slow to react as consumers huma moved away from buying trips bricks and mortar stores. The company did push into online business with forty percent of its bookings coming from the Internet has of last year yeah but not fast enough online rivals. Meanwhile didn't have to bear the costs of owning two hundred hotels five hundred travel agency shops and one hundred five airline jets but acted as middlemen but other factors late into the British travel company also company officials have cited uncertainty over Brexit Brexit' both from consumers worried about its impact on their finances and from the timing given that one unfulfilled deadline for Britain to leave the EU fell on March Watch thirty I just days before the heavy European Easter holiday travel season this year after twenty ten the Arab spring revolts discouraged travel to previous is UK favorites such as Egypt and Tunisia more than one hundred fifty thousand customers are currently stranded abroad leaving the UK government to to carry out what Foreign Secretary Dominic Robb calls the biggest peacetime repatriation in UK history. The job of bringing Thomas Cook customers estimates home falls to the United Kingdom Civil Aviation Authority who says the number of travellers being brought home is unprecedented. The agency says it has secured a fleet of aircraft from around the world to bring the passengers pack. Comores Johnson has repeatedly declined to comment on reported allegations he failed to declare close personal links to an American woman who received thousands thousands of pounds in public business funding while he was mayor of London the Prime Minister refused to answer six questions today about his links to Jennifer or curry curry a US technology entrepreneur a company run by curry received access to money to assist business as well as places on trade trips at times following the intervention of Meryl officials. It's also reported that Johnson was at the time a regular visitor to our curry's east London apartment and and that she described him at the time as one of my best friends the report said are curry's most recent company one one hundred thousand pound and government cyber skills grant intended to assist UK firms even though she has now returned to live in the US the Department for Culture Media and Sport Bolt has confirmed. It is investigating how the money was awarded. This isn't the first time Boris Johnson is accused of financial mismanagement during his time as man he famously spent millions on a new bus for London. That was less efficient than the ones. It was replacing. He builds a cable car that nobody used and commissioned Asian to garden bridge that cost fifty three million pounds despite never being built well leader after world leader told the United Nations today they would do more to prevent a warming world from reaching even more dangerous levels apples but as they made their pledges they conceded. It was not enough. Sixty six countries have promised to have more ambitious climate goals and thirty ETI swore to be carbon neutral by mid century heads of nations such as Finland in Gemini promised to ban coal within a decade Donald Trump dropped by by fifteen minutes listened to German Chancellor Angela Merkel's detailed pledges and then left without saying anything and even before world leaders made their promises is in three minutes speeches sixteen year olds climate activist Greta Tune Burke in an emotional speech chided the leaders with the repeated phrase. How how dare you this is all wrong. I shouldn't be up here. Tune Bug said I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean yet. You have come to US young people. I hope you have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. We will not let you get away with tune. Berg said right now is where we draw the line.

"That. And this is a very very unusual. I had some people have compared the discovery of this fish to finding dinosaurs. On the Congo basin, South Africa, the Amazon. It's not often the fish gets quite this introduction. But this is not just any fish. This is the of the prehistoric deep sea fish that was for many years thought to be long extinct. I'm professor Adam Hart and in this series for discovery. I'm exploring the genius of accidents in you, don't get much more unexpected or accidental than this. Eight in heavy scales. Almost on the like the been resemble limbs and are scaled right up to a fringe of filament. The spineless dorsal has tiny white spines down each not drawing inked in red. This description was a letter written a day before Christmas Eve in nineteen thirty eight by miss Marjorie, Courtney Latimer Marjorie or March to those new was a natural history. Curator at the east London museum on the eastern coast of South Africa. What her letter contained was absolutely incredible axel Meyer is professor of zoology at the university of Constance in Germany is completely unexpected that this fish would still be alive today. They were known from the fossil record. So as stones preserved and one of the amazing aspects of this is that it still looks very much like this that went extinct sixty seventy million years ago. It hasn't changed much at all in those sixty million years that have passed. So it really seems to be a fish at time for why hasn't it changed and sixty million years, but all around it so much evolutionary changes happen, how could this fish survive? Despite the fact that it seems to be frozen in time with such a good fossil record. And then nothing for the last sixty five million years. There was no reason to ever expect that a sealer can't would still be swimming around. Certainly no one was looking for them. Nonetheless, a young woman with no specific training in fish identification. But a careful and keen scientific mind recognized it as something important Margie natural historian who was supposed to find specimens to build up. A local naturalists museum in a provincial town in South Africa is London. I caught up these London museum to get some details of an accidental discovery that surely ranks as one of the most remarkable of all my name is Kevin Cole. I'm a principal.

Well, I can choose something that we used to joke about occasionally sitting on over end a little FOX to that you loved Cindy Iran Davis Cup of tea and she threw the decades or received a lot of attention. And sometimes she joked that she wished you thrown the damn fish. I've aboard but. That's the human side. But I don't think it was more in a. Just a humorous comment, but your three the issue got a lot of attention from it. And. Probably in some respects. It was quite a hard act to live up to of two discovery luck on new for thirteen years module was. Yeah. She was a naturalist through and through.

"And we focus on our core. In a way, you were betting on the com-. Right. Well, we we make bets in we make in big cities, obviously. But it's not just about what cities you go into. It's about places in the city that need economic redevelopment. So we come into downtown Los Angeles, we go into east London, we go into east Berlin. So we believe in the big markets, but it says much about where in the market as opposed to just the market itself as we walk. Can we talk timing for a second thousand seven and two thousand eight was no time at all in this economy to be opening some giant bazillion dollar investment? Yeah. The downturn was certainly a factor with specially with the hotel development, and I don't think that any business in the world is recession proof, but I'll tell you the lesson that we learned coming out of two thousand seven eight nine is that our business not just here in downtown LA, but really internationally and a lot of ways is recession resistant, and I think it's because of the markets that were in the nature of sports, and entertainment, and that we have great assets. Whether it's the two in London or Staples Center or the kings or the Lakers the galaxy there so now all right survived. So this is. Another big boomy space. We'll come back to the recession in the second. So this is the tunnel. So this is the underground tunnels. So this was not built when Staples Center opened and the Microsoft theater staple center across the street twenty thousand twenty thousand seats, Microsoft theaters, seven thousand seats, so when we were building LA live. We wanted to be able to capitalize on a lot of infrastructure that we had at Staples Center. We have a whole bunch of staff locker rooms in a huge commissary for our concessionaire. We have all of these back to the house services. So we thought oh, do we need to build all of that again with this new seven thousand seat venue across the street, or is there somewhere where we can connect these and leverage the infrastructure that we had, and we we we built this tunnel which enables us you come in here on any given Friday or Saturday when we have events going at both Staples. When there's a gazillion people up in the plaza right above us there. There are thousands of people there. This is a buzzing corridor with people and staff food and beverage going underneath. Menaces gritty down here. You were kidding back at the house. Honestly, these these places are where most comfortable. This is home sweet. Pretty good. Beer, kegs stacked up going by. We've got a game tonight. Look at this. Okay. So this is the corner of the floor. We have the clippers tonight. So any any moment. Now, we'll have the visiting team probably doing their shoot around. So this is the time of the season where we'll do two hundred and forty events a year. And this is the season where a lot of them happened. There's a lot of compression in the schedule. So we're standing literally on the on the corner of basketball court as you can probably hear over there. Why did L A need this campus? Why do we need? Well, it's funny when you think back in nineteen ninety seven when I started we were back at the at the forum in Inglewood mingled, all of the venues in the market were were really all they were all built in the in the sixties and seventies. So there was there was a real hole in the market for a state of the art venues, you you look at the markets around the country every market had a state of the art venue in some a lot lesser markets than Los Angeles. So I think that was where the vision for EG started was with the acquisition of the LA kings MAC in nineteen ninety five and this vision to build an arena in downtown, Los Angeles, what's your nightmare. Then right. What's your what keeps you up at night because you are running a global company with global brands? What are you worried about? Well, I think about macro things. I think about micro things. Now, we're twenty eight thousand employees over two hundred venues all over the world. So on any given moment right now, there's an event going on somewhere within energy. So with all those events going on. I think a lot about safety and security. You know, it's an extremely high priority on the macro side. Again, I think about the economy, what do you think about the economy because here we are? You know, it's the expansion is long in the tooth. And you run a company that depends a lot on discretionary income. What's your what's your economic stress level? Well, like we were talking about earlier in two thousand eight I think one of the lessons learned is that in many ways, we are recession recession resistant, not recession proof, but still we're investing a lot of capital, we're investing. So we have to be careful and selective with the risks. That we take in the projects that we take on. We're always going to be a growing company. Our our company's grown every year. We've set records in revenue and growth in the last six years. And with the economy, we have to be careful, but there's also opportunity that comes with with some of the economic distress AG owns or operates kings, the ele- galaxy in a Major League Soccer also has a slice of the Lakers. You got a favorite. I love all my love. I'll tell you. There's a lot. I am. I am and our fans know they see me at every game. They know that I'm as passionate as they are about the teams, and I do I love the teams. It's also I have a vested interest in making sure that our teams are successful.

"My brother's five years older, so that's no easy. But you know, sometimes it is a better thing for people. People see a break-up is a bad thing only and it's not always it's because the positives. Yeah. Yeah. And sometimes people can't work together under the same roof, but it's not the end of we still see each other and we still a big extended happy family now. So yeah, of course you probably you were mature in fourteen to solve say that. Yeah. Was it hard. The break hope to that affect you and your brother? Yeah, probably more than we probably know. Because let's say at the time, you just deal with it and you go on with it who say, you don't know if it's any different from what's happening to other people. And to be honest, it was a lot of people stories as well. I'm gonna taking the Mick out my friend because he's parents are still together today on you and barris about your parents together as a joke. But like most people I know don't have that situation, you know, quite common and it's much when my mom was seven, her dad died and she went back to school and the kids just took the pace as all they knew what to do because it was weird because everyone else had a nuclear family to them. It's like dude, his dad's died and it was a joke. It was like something to take the piss out of her full. So maybe growing up in such diverse and it's not just that, but like families are different. Now it's not just the nuclear family, which is always good, but it was just the norm tradition which, yeah, like I said, isn't always a good thing. Kombi a positive thing. Yeah, yes. If something's not right and there isn't a change, then it's just gonna explode and it's going to more people. Yeah. And they, you know, they argued a lot. So that was the end of that, which is good. That's a good thing that we're not all. Living in that environment. So yeah, it's always a bad thing was a good relationship with. Yeah, and I still live London life. So me and my mom and my brother will live together because again, it was I live in the kind of area. People taught me to make money and gal of and now suddenly will the people who are making money moving to my area, which is great and lovely, but I want to stay there now with us than you don't feel no. No, not that I guess before it was like you in east London. This is why it's pros and cons because place east London as always had so many artists come out of it because it was cheap rent and you know, big Mt. Cold damp houses. You're able to do your art and you know, have a roof over your head and a bit of support in time. Stories from from in and around area. Yeah. And often, poverty driven stories is what most culture comes out of. So now that I think is really, I don't feel the soul as much in a lot of London. It'd be like SoHo where we are right now, you know different to what it has been before Dan bad. My friend, Tanya, who owns the Mayes on Butto the teashop above us. Now she's been years and she and so changed so much that, yeah, in good in some ways. But often what people flocked to these places for is for the culture in the art, and you will lose that. If you stop letting people if is just filled with rich people, then they're often the ones who pay for art and who pay for, you know, you need it from the bottom and you need all of it in one. So when I was younger, you magin making money and move into someone Richmond, perhaps where it's always been quite expensive to live in his beautiful. If you can't do that, you can still make your in east London or somewhere. And that's not the same anymore. No, just the post codes and prices are just, yeah, we all know this is not a new story about out of going on. Yeah, and the areas of it were just not. They're not desirable. And now sudden it's the same property the same area and a half a million pounds, the air that my brother never. Let me go to growing up just like you've got no business going down there.

"So I worked to quote Vardis my first and my career of what is that it's own house, which is talk while that's going back east. And I've watched my few projects that have been bit more central. It is different. I think that the whole demographic and the way that London is operating is changing though. I think the of small operators are starting to bring a bit of east into the West End because people's tastes changing. I think a lot of people hotel, they'll stay in a beautiful hotel cream fear, but they'll get cab and they'll go, it's kind of east London gun pie. And a small operates goes, well, why don't I bring some of that into my space, what I keep them in hotel? Why on the have experience with us, but they can also have it with a five star standards if that is so true, how would you describe water? You can bring from east London to say, central Londono Westland. What is the magic of east London a little bit of chaos, isn't there just enough chaos for it to be really interesting. I think there's this at you. You that you can push the boundaries. You can be a bit more experimental. I think that you can be as general state east London thing that's really nice as well. It's very inclusive, which I think is great. They're the kind of things that we want to bring into the Corinthia those positives. And I think there's a lot of people in our restaurant industry who work in east London who replying the five star ethos Neth IX to that businesses that just doing it in a very relaxed style. You know, people like, you know, LeRoy in shortage, those guys are making incredible food. The service is impeccable, but it's just done with a slightly more relaxed, chilled out five. And just finally, you have also promised fair a coke over here. The students just say that we get the recipe for it. So I'm going to let you start with that. What are you offering us today? So this is a is called the cognac. Hobble is on the bassoon menu. It's one of my favorite drinks. I love cognac. I grew up in France, and again one, those, the Spurs the really illustrates tell wa, but as also new wave of cognac producers who really exciting, who going back to what may connect great in the first place in my opinion. So the clinic, amusing retail, I'm from a small juice jar and then very simply, I'm gonna mix that with a touch of veggie, which is unripe grape juice to a bit more acidity than it would usually have. And we have a son with soda which we make ourselves sacred wild. So we actually distill sandalwood not with alcohol, but we water. So we make a hundred soap. Then we add more water, a touch of such Gusset and some sugar, and we carbonated to forty-one one psi. So they've guess hopefully the ball doesn't explode. Dispute goes. So very, very simple drink. Some. Five mills. So it's not too busy as was nice, refreshing drink. And again, I think a lot of people saying that is a heavy spirit. Now, like to highlight the fact this quite a light, easygoing, sprint in Lebanon. It's quite often it was made from white wine, so it's kind of nice freakiness. Iceland she lemon such in there, just fresh up. So look, my drinks tends to be. Very simple is done behind closed doors. We don't necessarily tell the guest about the preparations. We just kind of..
