From beyond the grave: Richard III boosts Leicestershire tourism by 482m in just one year (not bad for a body in a car park) Two out of five stay in the same resort, one in 10 do the same activities, almost two fifths go to the same beach, and almost a third will go to the same bar or pub. When it comes to the type of holidays, half want relaxing beach holidays, a fifth want sightseeing trips or city breaks. Top destinations for boomerang Britons are Tenerife, Paris, Florida, Benidorm and Majorca with two fifths saying good weather and reasonable prices made them return to the same place. Over an eighth cited the resort being family friendly for their return. New experience?: No thanks. The majority of British tourists know what they like and want that on holiday My spot: An eighth of British holidaymakers will even sit in the same place Overall two in five enjoy revisiting the same place because they know what to expect, while a fifth said they do not feel the need to try somewhere new as they know they like this particular location. One in five said they would feel happy returning to the same place every year.

High School OT.com - Three Holiday Invitational alums taken in NBA Draft
Gottlieb/Library of Congress) In response to a letter of protest signed by more than 1,000 women of color, Joshua DuBois penned a thoughtful defense at The Daily Beast of President Obama and My Brothers Keeper, the $200 million public-private initiative to improve life outcomes and address opportunity gaps for men and boys of color. Inspired by Audra McDonalds Tony Awardwinning stage portrayal of jazz legend Billie Holiday, DuBois argues that the signatories of the letter failed to grasp the presidents sensitivity, devotion, and dare I say, even love for black women. We can recognize this love and devotion in part, DuBois tells us, in the presidents special fondness for Lady Day, her music and the pain and resilience expressed by her artistry. I too have been moved by the biography and the artistry of Billie Holiday. My father, my first teacher and a jazz lover who always sought to share his interest with his younger daughter, introduced me to Lady Day and her music. I went on to devote a book to exploring her personal significance to me and to larger questions about gender, race and class. Like DuBois, I also sat awestruck at McDonalds performance: one great artist paying homage to another.
