A simple tip to avoid reflections when shooting with your phone


We’ve all been there. We’re trying to get great food shots in a bakery, but the brownies and cookies are hidden behind reflective glass. Our shot is ruined!

Or we’ve paid good money to go to an urban rooftop or another location for the best view in town, only we’re stuck behind glass. Foiled again! The glass seems dirty, but it’s not. Still, it’s ruining your shot by catching the daylight reflections, your image, and any other bright objects out there.

So what to do? Thanks for asking. Because we have a common-sense solution.

Get in really tight and basically press the smartphone lens to the glass. The closer you get, the more likely it is that you’ll see the reflections disappear.

This trick is harder to pull off with a camera lens, since they’re not flat like smartphone lenses. Their round glass sticks out from the lens, and there’s the outer shell as well that prevents you from getting in tighter. This is an example of where photographing on a smartphone gives you a clear advantage over the bigger, higher resolution traditional camera.

Take a look at this before and after example from our recent Las Vegas Photowalk episode where the raised pedestrian crosswalks theoretically give you a great vantage point for a skyline shot. (In the shot above, you can see me trying to get this shot on an iPhone.)

This is the same spot. But in the shot on the left, I stood back from the glass. For the right image, I just got right in there and pressed the lens to the glass.

Back at the bakery, (the fabled Canter’s Deli in Los Angeles) this technique isn’t always perfect. Sometimes you will see reflections, no matter how close you are. But as you can tell, in the difference between the top shot and this one, you will definitely see fewer reflections this way.

If you have time, you can always wait out the reflection by buying a cookie, taking a seat and stalling. Just wait for the light to shift. Or, go vertical. Just crop out the reflections.

Getting in tight has its advantages in that you’ll see the cookie in a whole new light by getting so close. Have you ever looked at big globs of fudge in this way? And if you do stall for time to wait for the reflections to go away, consider yourself lucky.

After all, one of those big cookies are worth it, right?

5 Mistakes To Avoid When Visiting An All-Inclusive Resort


All-inclusive resorts can be an incredibly convenient way to vacation. Commonly found in Mexico and the Caribbean, these tropical resorts typically include all meals and snacks, nonalcoholic and alcoholic drinks, and nonmotorized ocean sports (kayaking, sailing, and snorkeling just off the beach) in the nightly room rate. 

Activities ranging from dance lessons and cocktail-making classes to beach volleyball and morning yoga are also included, as is access to the on-site fitness center. Also often included: evening entertainment (think live music, karaoke, fire shows, and comedians) and kids’ clubs.

When you book an all-inclusive vacation, you pay one fee, and a whole lot of food, drink, and entertainment is at your fingertips. Sounds easy, right? It sure is, but there are some things you’ll want to keep in mind to help your all-inclusive trip go as smoothly as possible — especially if you’re new to this type of travel.

Here are some mistakes to avoid when you’re planning, booking, and experiencing your next all-inclusive resort vacation.

1. Expecting Everything To Be Included

With all that is included in an all-inclusive resort vacation, there’s plenty that isn’t included. For example, resorts nearly always charge for a la carte spa treatments (and they’re not cheap). A round of golf at the resort course will likely cost you. If you want to drink premium wine, beer, and liquor outside of the house brands, you’ll pay for that, too. And there will likely be an upcharge for special restaurant dishes like lobster and steak.

Then there are the “extras” you might want to enjoy while at the resort, such as a candlelight dinner on the beach, scuba-diving lessons, or a reserved beach bed with gourmet treats.

That said, the specific inclusions at different resorts vary widely. Some properties, like Beaches, do include premium liquors. Sometimes, certain room categories or packages, like the El Dorado Spa Resorts’ Honeymoon Collection, include a special romantic dinner or two-for-one couples’ massage. Sandals covers greens fees at its Caribbean golf resorts

Bottom Line: Research what exactly is included in your reservation. If you can’t find the answer on the resort’s website, pick up the phone or start an online chat with a reservations agent to get the scoop. Or enlist the help of a travel agent.

2. Not Bringing Enough Cash For Tips

Some resorts, such as Couples, have a publicized no-tipping policy. That means you don’t need to leave cash tips for housekeepers, bartenders, and other resort employees — your room rate covers all gratuities.

More typically, it’s customary to leave a few dollars for the friendly bartender making your drinks, the restaurant servers who are hustling to get hot food to your table, the energetic activities staff running the fun volleyball games, the housekeeping staff leaving you towel animals on your bed every night, and the bell staff handling your luggage. 

Bottom Line: Find out what your resort’s policy is when you’re booking your vacation. Plan to bring several $1 and $5 bills to support hardworking employees if tipping is allowed on the property. If tips are covered in your room rate, you’ll still want a few dollars to tip taxi drivers, luggage handlers, or tour guides you may encounter outside the resort. (Dollars are widely accepted as tips in Mexico and the Caribbean, though local currency is welcomed as well.)

3. Readily Accepting The Offer To Sit Through A Timeshare Or Vacation Club Presentation

Most all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico have a vacation club, where members pay a fee to receive significant discounts or upgraded “members-only” rooms on trips to that family of resorts. Similarly, timeshares (also called vacation-ownership memberships) allow people to purchase a set number of weeks to spend annually at the resort — or other resorts in the network — so you are basically paying for subsequent vacations in advance.

On arrival at your all-inclusive resort, you’ll undoubtedly be asked to attend a vacation club or timeshare presentation in exchange for a “free” gift. Over the years, my husband and I have sat through these talks for $100 in cash, a Jeep rental, and a 60-minute massage. Each time we said, “No, thank you,” firmly, when we were asked to buy into a timeshare or vacation club (even after the initial offer dropped in price by more than 75 percent). 

We have zero interest in being locked into vacationing at the same place every year, and we don’t want to be stuck with a timeshare that will then need to be deeded to our kids or otherwise sold when we can’t travel anymore. 

However, I like freebies, so we sat through the sales spiels. That is, until the last time — the sales tactics were incredibly aggressive, we were treated rudely when we said we weren’t interested, and we were roughly escorted out a back service door (while folks who did purchase memberships were celebrated with champagne bottles popping and bells ringing). Now we simply say we don’t want to attend a spiel.

Bottom Line: Consider whether it’s worth giving up at least an hour of your vacation time to tour the timeshare or vacation club accommodations and sit through the sales presentation. Often, salespeople will say it’ll take just an hour, but they’ll keep selling until you literally get up and walk away. Keep an eye on your watch and make clear you’re done listening after the agreed-upon 60 minutes.

Be prepared for aggressive sales tactics — it’s easy to be swayed and make a purchase impulsively! Remember, you can always just budget for that massage or other “freebie” instead of wasting your time in a sales presentation.

4. Not Exploring The Whole Resort Or Trying New Things

This is your vacation — you should spend it how you like. And if you immediately find a favorite spot at the pool for lounging, or a favorite breakfast restaurant with the best made-to-order omelets, then by all means, put that on repeat daily until it’s time to go home. Similarly, if you’ve been to Mexico multiple times, and this particular trip is all about rest and relaxation on the beach, then there’s no need to book a bunch of off-site excursions to local cenotes, archaeological ruins, or snorkeling spots. 

But I’d suggest that if you’re at a new-to-you vacation destination, you take the time to check out all the offerings of the resort and its surroundings. That means scouting out the different relaxing spots to read your book (hammock, lounge chair, or beach bed!) or making reservations at the various a la carte restaurants (typically upon arrival with the concierge or restaurant staff, to avoid missing out). 

Also consider visiting the resort’s tour desk, where representatives can sign you up for off-property trips to learn about the local culture or have fun with various activities — from a sunset catamaran cruise to a zip-lining adventure to swimming with stingrays.

Bottom Line: You know what you like, and on vacation you may not be interested in any surprises. But traveling also offers opportunities to try new things. So if you’re going to a Club Med property and you can learn to fly on a trapeze — safely, and for free! — why not sign up? Similarly, with all of your food included, sample new dishes. If you don’t love what you ordered, don’t hesitate to ask for a different appetizer or entree — all your food is paid for already, so enjoy!

5. Packing Too Much

I’m a chronic overpacker. Too often, I’ll tuck one more shirt or pair of shoes into my packed bag “just in case,” and then I end up bringing home clothes that I hadn’t worn. For my most recent trip to a tropical all-inclusive resort, I packed a carry-on only for a week’s stay. 

In my carry-on and tote bag were three sets of shorts and tank tops to exercise in (I wore my sneakers on the plane); five bathing suits; three beach cover-ups; water shoes (because I knew we were going to a spot with a rocky beach); two pairs of flip-flops; a dressy pair of sandals; four jersey dresses and two light sweaters for dinner (indoor restaurants are notoriously over-air-conditioned); plus a snorkel and mask, curling iron, and a whole bunch of toiletries and over-the-counter meds (just in case!).

Turns out, I’d even packed too much in my carry-on. I would have done just fine with one less sweater, bathing suit, evening dress, and beach cover-up. That curling iron did me absolutely no good in the humid weather — my bangs did what they wanted to, and curls just didn’t hold.

Bottom Line: There’s no reason to wear a different bathing suit or evening outfit every day on vacation. Having fewer items to keep track of, and lighter luggage to cart around, just makes traveling simpler, in my book. Especially at an all-inclusive resort, where days are mostly spent at the pool or beach, and dinner is a classy affair (be sure to confirm any dress code before you arrive), just a few outfits to mix and match — and re-wear — will do nicely!

Traveller shares expert tip on how to avoid losing all your luggage on holiday


DON’T worry about losing all of your things next time you go on holiday, as a frequent traveller has revealed how to avoid this.

Sharing the clever trick on Reddit, they explain how you won’t end up without your clothes and toiletries even if your suitcase goes rogue.

They said: “If you’re travelling by plane with another person, split your clothes and put half of each persons clothes into each suitcase.

“That way if one suitcase is lost en route, you both still have clothing, rather than one person being left with nothing to wear.”

“This is literally something completely free that you and your partner/friend/someone else you live with could do so neither of you would end up with no clothes or just one change of clothes you put in your hand luggage/carry on.

“It would save buying new clothes in a country you may not be familiar with which may also be financially inconvenient. Carry on luggage is also often made to go in the hold so that argument is not valid.

“Yes I am aware that luggage going missing is rare but it happens. I have worked at an airport and know people who work at an airport. It happens enough to warrant putting a system in place so that you don’t end up without clothes.

The original poster said it even works if you are travelling with a partner who is a different size.

They added: “I do this with my SO who is a different sex and a different size to me, the idea being we still wear our own clothes when we’re at our destination, just dividing them between cases during travelling in case one case goes missing.”

Many shared their horror stories of losing their luggage.

One person wrote: “Mine and my brothers luggage got left in Dallas when we flew HALF WAY ACROSS THE F****** PLANET. It sucked.

“We waited 3 days with two changes of clothes. We had to do laundry every night.”

Another person said: “My friend and her mom went to Italy. The luggage got lost or on a different plane. Her now ex husband gets a call from the bank about fraud when she uses her card to try to buy stuff and cancels her card.

“So she was in Italy with little resources and for a couple days, just the clothes on her back. She said they had to wash out their undies in the sink and let them dry for morning for a couple of days.”

One person said it was something she did herself: “As someone who has worked for an airline for 25 years I have always split my family’s clothes across all the cases as it happens far more than not people would imagine.

“Even a 24 hr delay I’m receiving your case on holiday can make the difference between changing you underwear or not!”

Many others said they often have a spare change of clothes in their carry on bag, just in case.

A flight attendant has revealed the item he always packs when travelling to make it easier, and one travel expert has explained why you should never put your address on your luggage tag.

Stay Healthy and Avoid Getting Sick While Traveling


“What I often tell travelers is that sometimes we work so hard rushing around and getting ready to leave that we don’t get enough sleep, which makes us more susceptible to getting sick,” Dr. Fernandes tells SELF. When you’re sleep deprived, your body makes fewer cytokines (proteins that help your cells communicate so your immune system functions well) and certain antibodies that help fight infection or counter stress, according to the Mayo Clinic4. Everyone has different sleep needs, but generally, most adults benefit from at least seven to nine hours of shut-eye each night, according to the National Sleep Foundation5.

If your vacation involves jetting across several time zones, transitioning your sleep schedule to your destination’s time zone may be easier to adopt than suddenly going to bed three hours earlier the day you arrive. “Start that process ahead of time,” Paul Pottinger, M.D., director of the University of Washington Medical Center Tropical Medicine & Infectious Diseases Clinic in Seattle, tells SELF. “If you’re crossing three time zones, for example, try to adjust your sleep schedule by one time zone per day.” For instance, if you’re flying to New York from San Francisco, then you might go to bed one hour earlier than usual three nights before you leave, and two hours earlier the next night, if your schedule allows it. (Of course, this strategy probably won’t help much or be doable if you’re skipping over six time zones, Dr. Pottinger says.)

During your trip, you might be tempted to skimp on sleep to make the most of your time away, but maintaining good sleep habits—even if that sounds a bit boring—is really important, according to Nicole Van Groningen, M.D., an internist and hospitalist at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. If you can, aim to sleep your normal amount each night and go to bed and wake up around the same time every day of your trip. If you have jet lag and really can’t get decent shut-eye, you may want to consider taking low-dose melatonin (up to 3 milligrams), a hormone that your body produces naturally to make you feel sleepy, Dr. Van Groningen suggests. (Just a note: If you have a health condition or take any other medications or supplements, it’s always safest to talk to your doctor before adding in something else.)

3. Stay hydrated—especially when you’re flying.

In addition to getting enough sleep, it’s also important to preemptively hydrate before traveling, and to keep up your water intake throughout your trip. First, drinking enough water can help prevent dehydration, which can make you feel tired and dizzy.

As a major bonus, upping your fluids can help your body ward off germs by maintaining a moist environment in your throat and nasal passages via mucus production. “If you’re not hydrated enough, your cilia, the little hairs in your nose, can’t do their job because they dry out,” Dr. Fernandes says.

Mucus keeps those hairs nice and sticky so they can trap germs and dirt in your nose and keep them from getting to your lungs. You then expel these germs by coughing or sneezing, according to the British Society for Immunology6.

Southwest Considers Adjusting Network to Avoid Repeat Disruptions


Southwest Airlines is evaluating “potential network schedule changes” to avoid a repeat of the widespread delays and cancellations it faced last weekend, president and COO Mike Van de Ven said in an apology letter posted on the carrier’s website.

The disruption, which resulted in more than 2,000 canceled flights over the holiday weekend, stemmed from weather and air traffic control delays in Florida on Friday that “cascaded throughout the weekend and into Monday and Tuesday,” Van de Ven said. The initial delays in Florida caused crew and aircraft to be out of their scheduled places, he said, which resulted in the additional delays and cancellations.

Other carriers did not have issues of a similar magnitude over the weekend, but Van de Ven said that was due to Southwest’s large footprint in Florida, through which as much as half of its total aircraft fly through on a given day. About a quarter of the carrier’s crew assignments include at least one stop in Florida, and they were particularly hit by a seven-hour closure on Friday at Orlando, which is one of Southwest’s largest crew bases, he said.

In addition to a schedule evaluation before the upcoming holiday season, Southwest is working to bulk up its workforce, with the goal of hiring 5,000 employees by the end of the year. The carrier currently is halfway to that goal, according to Van de Ven.

“We’ve said numerous times: The pandemic is unprecedented and extremely complex,” he said in the letter. “It was messy going into it, and it’s messy as we fight to emerge from it.”

Van de Ven also continued to dispute the persistent speculation, stoked by several U.S. Republican lawmakers, that the operational issues were related to Southwest’s recent announcement that it would follow federal requirements of instituting a Covid-19 vaccine mandateThe Federal Aviation Administration and Southwest’s pilots’ union also have disputed those rumors.

“There simply is nothing in our data that indicates that particular reason,” according to Van de Ven. “Our employees worked heroically in the midst of these adverse conditions, and many came in on off days, or flew additional trips, to help the airline recover.”

NBL fixture: Perth Wildcats avoid early travel to COVID hotspots as schedule gets pushed back


The NBL have delayed the start of the season until December 3 and ensured the Perth Wildcats will avoid the nation’s major COVID hotspots until January 30.

And all Wildcats players will be vaccinated for the start of the season, avoiding any potential issues with changing laws.

The league has today released a fixture heavily designed around playing at venues with fans in attendance while avoiding border closures.

SCROLL DOWN FOR THE FULL FIXTURE

Matches were initially scheduled to start on November 18 but the later tip-off has eased the COVID-19 pressures on the NBL.

The fixture will see the Wildcats playing seven of their first nine games at home, with their only travel to Adelaide and Brisbane during that time.

The 36ers, Brisbane and New Zealand will all play in Perth twice in the early rounds.

Perth won’t play in NSW until January 30 and their first match in Victoria isn’t until February 26.

“It’s a credit to the league that they have been able to put together a fixture that presents the least amount if interruptions that seems possible,” Wildcats CEO Troy Georgiu said.

“Our priority was for our members to be able to attend games. The fact that we have a lot of home games during school holidays is great. People can watch summer hoops at night and we have some mouthwatering games during that time.

“We’ve got early games like Vic Law playing against his former team and a new JackJumpers team that is filled with former Wildcats.”

With 28 games scheduled across a 10-team competition, the Wildcats will play Adelaide four times and the remaining teams on three occasions. They won’t play any of the Victorian or NSW teams more than once at RAC Arena.

While that will require them to spend time in the nation’s most COVID-impacted states, Georgiu said the entire squad would be vaccinated.

“We didn’t mandate it so we are pleased that our players put themselves into a position where they can play even if laws come into place at some point during the season,” Georgiu said.

The NBL has planned for all teams to have four practice matches but an NBL Cup has not been announced.

NBL Commissioner Jeremy Loeliger said the fixture could change if required, but everyone was looking forward to a more normal season.

“We are confident that as the country opens back up, our schedule will open up with it and we will get back to running the competition like we used to,” he said.

E.U. weighs covid travel restrictions on American tourists, U.S. says avoid Europe


The possibility of a review looms as U.S. authorities are urging Americans to avoid much of western Europe. On Monday, the State Department issued “Do Not Travel” advisories for France and Iceland, citing the virus levels in those countries, which are similar to U.S. rates. Officials had already attached that highest-level warning to Britain, Cyprus, Greece, Ireland, Malta, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain.
