CNN’s monthly travel programme, ‘In 24 Hours’ returns to screens in September with a visit to Los Angeles.
From the sun-kissed shores of the California coast to the glittering lights of Hollywood, LA has been luring visitors for decades.
‘In 24 Hours’ host James Williams (pictured) goes beyond the surface of Los Angeles to experience some of the unique destinations the city has to offer.
Williams begins his morning with a personal yoga session at the highest point of the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills with world renowned instructor, Steve Ross. Afterwards, he heads to the fashionable Silver Lake neighbourhood to fuel up for the day at Moon Juice, LA's hottest juice bar, frequented by celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow.
The pace of change across Asia’s cities is staggering, and with that growth comes new challenges, especially when it comes to laying the groundwork for a more liveable future. In this month’s half-hour program ‘Innovative Cities’, CNN will feature five Asian cities that are using imaginative methods to break away from the past and move into a better tomorrow. From Seoul, to Singapore to Hong Kong, from Fukuoka, Japan to Kunming, China, innovative thinking is fuelling new development aimed squarely at revitalizing these cities and invigorating their residents. Despite their differences, the urban planners, architects, and entrepreneurs behind these projects share a common vision: to evolve the modern Asian metropolis beyond skyscrapers and showcases, and to place renewed focus on the hundreds of millions of people who call these cities home.
In her first TV interview since revealing that she is not supporting Donald Trump, Sen. Susan Collins (R-ME) talks exclusively with Special Correspondent Jamie Gangel, stating, “The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans. When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion. That was just the final straw for me.” When asked if she’d vote for Hillary Clinton, Sen. Collins responded, “I really don't anticipate voting for Hillary.”
On when she decided she wasn’t going to support Donald Trump:
“The tipping point for me was his attack on the Khans. When he showed absolutely no empathy or compassion for their terrible loss and instead attacked the two gold star parents, and also attacked their religion. That was just the final straw for me.”
On why she is not supporting Donald Trump:
“Donald Trump, in my judgment, would make a perilous world even more dangerous. I worry that his tendency to lash out and his ill-informed comments would cause dangerous events to escalate and possibly spin out of control at a time when our world is beset with conflict.”
Japan is an island nation with distinctive architecture, historical temples and shrines, and glitzy shopping hubs. The country has long been famed for its cuisine, unique pop culture, and cutting edge technology. While the news has been filled with stories about its economic struggle after the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake, the nation still remains the world’s third largest economy. And after the Olympic Games wraps up in Rio de Janeiro this year, all eyes around the world will turn to Japan against the backdrop of preparing the 2020 Summer Olympics.
This month, CNN focuses on Japan and gets unique perspectives from six bloggers, four Instagrammers, a Michelin-starred chef, a charismatic mayor, and an 88-year-old scientist-turned-inventor. CNN takes a special look at the country’s rich culture spanning travel, food, fashion, music, technology and urban invention.
