Airbnb has changed the whole tourism sector. The public administration in many countries helps the hotels to protect their business and also the real estate market by ruling out strict conditions to rent apartments for temporal use. The Spanish hotel chain Room Mate has turned it around and created Be mate, a competition for Airbnb. Room Mate will have to the end of this year 30 hotels all over the world, mostly in international cities like New York or Istanbul. The concept is different to a classical hotel. For the moment they do not have restaurants, they just offer breakfast. They do not want to enter in the star category system, but range in price in the luxury hotel level.

The 8th of March, a very important and special day for women all over the world. In the last 100 years a lot of things changed for women. They were given the right to vote, to get divorced (in some parts of the world at least) and work. But what is worth your work if you don’t get paid fairly and equal as men? How can it be that in times like this, women still have so many deficits compared to men? In China for example women earn 40 % less than men, so its the biggest gender pay gap worldwide.
