Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Perhaps read your source again Frozen North. It says "attractive agents", it's not gender specific. In the Aust. context I read "attractive agents" as well dressed better than average looking licenced real estate salespersons, male or female. Not some tarted up scantily clad eye candy office decora...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

A cultural quirk. In Western cultures it's taken as a given in the real estate industry that the wife will in most cases have the final say on whether to buy this property or that so having "skimpys" at a property expo is a huge no no. It seems that using young women is quite well accepted for ever...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Anyway didnt really mean to hijack my own thread with my opinions. Sorry, too late. :) Yeah ok my mistake if I made it sound particular to Chile . I guess it wasn't the scantily clad young women in particular, it was more the reflection on Chilean society, where the majority of people don't even re...

Re: chile's migration crisis

Interesting... My wife was a little shocked when she got to Australia at what she saw as lax food handling standards. What she didn't know was everyone she was looking at had to pass a food handling course.... Food handling course or no food handling course, but your wife might have had some valid ...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Yeah I can understand the logic and marketing at Autoshows, if you are just buying something small (or even big if a middle aged man feels the need to make up for an unsatisfied life and buy a really inappropriate sports car at age 50) and where generally in a predominantly male dominated industry ...

Re: chile's migration crisis

In many countries yearly TB test is a must for food handlers and school teachers. It might be the case in some countries, but those would be places in which TB is an issue, such as Hawaii. But even Hawaii seems to have some changes: Previously, a TB test involved an injection by a healthcare profes...

Re: chile's migration crisis

I didn't think it was that easy to get TB, it's not as if you get it if someone coughs on you or your food is it? I was under the impression it was normally spread in overcrowded houses etc where germs are spread easy and people who are in close contact with someone with TB all the time are most at...

Re: chile's migration crisis

''Hawaii’s requirements that food handlers, school personnel and students, health care workers, and residential and daycare staff all be cleared for TB before going to work or school were suspended April 11 because of the testing solution shortages.'' Your original comment was: Would you like that ...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

I'll tell you what I won't be doing, is hiring promotadoras. .... Yeah it was cheesy, like used car salesman at a conference in Vegas, I don't mean to keep going on about the sexy girls as it makes me sound like a dirty ol man, but honestly what is the point of them in 2018 at a real estate expo, ....

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Retail is just a completely different animal versus construction, and huge companies can have disastrous failures in small, fragmented and under-researched markets with falsified government statistics. Look at the monstrous failure of Target in Canada a few years ago, for example. Yes, those obsess...

Re: North Korea

[ an ego-driven person ] ... the second North Korean official came out and she, I think, really offered the statement that was the straw that broke the camel's back. What she said was that it was the U.S. who had asked for the meeting. And I think that a lot of this has been driven by the president...
