Tripadvisor has launched the Review Hub – a service where reviews from all portals are available in one place

first_imgHow Review Hub Works The importance of responding to reviews The Review Hub is a paid subscription and is available to all restaurant owners, operators and digital marketing teams, and can be subscribed to on a monthly or annual basis. It is available in all markets in which Tripadvisor operates. “Only a small number of restaurant owners have the time to log in individually to each website related to reviews and respond to user comments. That’s why we’re excited to provide one tool to manage those reviews that will save them time“, Said Bertrand Jelensperger, senior vice president for the restaurant section at Tripadvisor. “The Review Hub is the latest result of Tripadvisor’s efforts to make online marketing and restaurant management as easy as possible for busy restaurant owners.” Tripadvisor Review Hub – example site There I can also respond quickly to any review – thank my guests for the feedback and share their side of the story. This response is automatically posted on the website or app where the review was originally posted, making online reputation management easier. The Ipsos MORI survey, conducted on a sample of over 23 respondents worldwide, also shows that six out of ten (63%) respondents said they were more likely to visit a restaurant if the owner responded to most reviews. And when a restaurant owner publishes personalized responses to reviews, more than three-quarters (77%) of respondents said they are more likely to visit a restaurant. The Review Hub displays a summary of ratings and reviews from multiple platforms, and allows restaurant owners to delve deeper into their unique review trends. So restaurant owners can see what works and where they can improve their user experience, with a full range of reviews from multiple sites. The survey shows that more than 90 percent of respondents think criticism is important when choosing a restaurant, indicating how important it is to pay attention to what restaurant guests write online. Online reviews are not only the experiences of previous guests, but also allow the owners to show potential future guests the best of their restaurant. In its constant efforts to help restaurants run their businesses and take control of their online reputation, Tripadvisor launched last week Review Hub(review center). Namely, it is a new interactive portal that allows restaurant owners to view user reviews about their restaurant and quickly respond to them, all from one convenient dashboard, whether the review is shared on Tripadvisor, Google, Facebook, Yelp or other major sites for reviews.

Test predicts hair and eye colour

first_imgHealthInternationalLifestylePrint Test predicts hair and eye colour by: – August 24, 2012 Sharing is caring! Share Share Tweetcenter_img Share 16 Views no discussions The test can predict both hair and eye colour from samples left at a crime sceneScientists have developed a forensic test that can predict both the hair and eye colour of a possible suspect using DNA left at a crime scene.The team that developed the test says it could provide valuable leads in cases where perpetrators cannot be identified through DNA profiling.The Hirisplex system could allow investigators to narrow down a large group of possible suspects.Details appear in the journal Forensic Science International: Genetics.Predicting phenotypes – outward traits such as hair colour or eye colour – from DNA information is an emerging field in forensics.An important current approach, known as genetic profiling, involves comparing crime scene DNA with that from a suspect or with a profile stored in a database. But this relies on the person either being among a pool of suspects identified by the police or having their profile in a DNA database.Tools such as Hirisplex could be useful in those cases where the perpetrator is completely unknown to the authorities, said Prof Manfred Kayser, who led the study.He said the test “includes the 24 currently best eye and hair colour predictive DNA markers. In its design we took care that the test can cope with the challenges of forensic DNA analysis such as low amounts of material.” Prof Kayser, from Erasmus University Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands, added: “The test is very sensitive and produces complete results on even smaller DNA amounts than usually used for forensic DNA profiling.”He told BBC News that the journal article described everything needed to establish the test in a forensic lab, but that the team was also in touch with industry regarding their knowledge about hair and eye colour prediction.The test system includes the six DNA markers previously used in a test for eye colour known as Irisplex, combining them with predictive markers for hair.In the study, the authors used Hirisplex to predict hair colour phenotypes in a sample drawn from three European populations.On average, their prediction accuracy was 69.5% for blonde hair, 78.5% for brown, 80% for red and 87.5% for black hair colour.Analysis on worldwide DNA samples suggested the results were similar regardless of a person’s geographic ancestry. The team was also able to determine, with a prediction accuracy of about 86%, whether a brown-eyed, black haired person was of non-European versus European origin (excluding some nearby areas such as the Middle East).The findings were also outlined at the sixth European Academy of Forensic Science conference in The Hague this week.BBC Newslast_img read more
