Know the feeling: wakes up after dream a long night in a hotel bed, slip into your diffuse issued by the hotel bathrobe and slippers issued by the hotel, stepping on the fluffy rug hotel and think “why is so amazing!”
The question is certainly intriguing. So we asked a handful of editors HuffPost your experiences of favorite hotel bed. And the more we investigated, most realized that all experiences blissful hotel have in common an important detail:
All the best hotel beds are coloured white.
You probably never thought of this, but tries to imagine a hotel that is not white bed, and you’ll see what we mean. And however all spent time trying to find colorful knits and crazy Bohemia-print sheets to our rooms at home. What is the problem?
It turns out that white is a symbol of luxury, and the bet is that you feel more luxurious and more luxuriously sleep! -on a white bed.
“Visually, it is important, the idea of the White House”, said Erin Hoover, vice president of design for Westin and Sheraton hotels. “Something about a white bed denotes luxury and dream a good night of”.
When Westin was a pioneer in his now famous Heavenly Bed in the 1990s, said Hoover, the idea of a bed of white hotel was an unpopular – hotels mainly used quilts colors, which were easier to clean. But after seeing the results of the tests, Westin designers were convinced that there was only one way to go.
“White bed created this halo effect – they thought that a quarter had been renewed, although it was only the bed that had been changed,” explained Hoover. “It had a huge impact.”
It is not only Westin which has a white bed as the centerpiece of a perfect hotel room. The Miraval, Hilton and Park Hyatt, home to some of our editors another favorite rooms – white beds, also feature.Seems to be a step towards simplification, a subtle sign that hotels are the place to leave your worries and the disorder of the world behind.
Research shows that sexism remains a problem for women scientists here on Earth, and a disturbing new study suggests it may also exist in space – at least as high as the orbit of the space telescope Hubble (HST).
The study shows that women astronomers are less likely than their male counterparts to be the time of compliance issued on Hubble, Scientific American reported.
Carried out internally by the Baltimore Space Telescope Science Institute basis – which oversees the operations of the telescope – the study involves an analysis of data from the last 11 cycles during which the proposals of astronomers have been selected or rejected. He showed that with female proposals ‘principal investigators’ (PIs) were much less likely to win approval were with worse male proposals.
Specifically, what explains the disparity?
Dr.Meg Urry, Professor of physics and astronomy at Yale University and a former head of the Commission, which considered the proposals of the Hubble, said The Huffington Post in an e-mail that if it was possible that the proposals submitted by PIs women were of inferior quality, it is much more likely that the proposals of women were rejected more frequently because ‘subtle bias’ against women exists in the review process.
“First of all, HST proposals are written by teams of men and women, each of them contributes to the proposal and it provides a good,” told The Huffington Post. “Therefore the only PI does not have as much impact on the quality of the proposal. More important still, prejudices against women in stem and other male-dominated occupations have been observed in hundreds, perhaps thousands of experiences of social sciences. It would be very unusual if somewhere, astronomers were immunized against bias widely shared by men and women in the United States.”
As the Blue Man Group is a pre-release iPhone 6 Sept. 9 was, there was only one thing for them to do: unbox it with power tools and play-DOH. Obvious.
Watch the video above, their ridiculous attempts to unveil the phone. It’s not quite as smoothly as their perfectly-choreographed shows, but it has just the right amount of character and humor.
The iPhone 6 hit stores Friday, so I hope you have sell more luck at the unboxing!
