US News & World Report: Impatience, it turns out, can be costly. Research suggests that people who opt for smaller rewards today over bigger rewards later tend to have lower credit scores. In the study by Columbia Business School associate professor Stephan Meier, the most impatient people had credit scores below 620, which means they pay more for loans.In the 2011 study published in the journal Psychological Science, Meier and his co-authors offered 437 low- to moderate-income participants bigger cash rewards if they were willing to receive the money later. They correlated the participants’ willingness to delay their cash rewards with their FICO score, a commonly used credit score. The participants most willing to wait for their cash rewards, had FICO scores that were, on average, 30 points higher than those who were the least patient. People with lower credit scores often have a harder time getting loans, and they pay more for the loans they do get.Read the whole story: US News & World Report
Airbus A320 milik Etihad di Dubai Airshow2017. Sumber: ainonline.com Pagelaran Dubai Airshow yang diadakan dari tanggal 12 hingga 16 November 2017 akan menjadi momen prestisius bagi Airbus untuk memamerkan beberapa inovasi yang telah mereka ‘godok’ sebelumnya. Tidak hanya memajang berbagai teknologi, produk, dan layanan inovatif dari pesawat komersialnya saja, melainkan perusahaan aeronautika berbasis di Toulouse, Perancis ini juga memamerkan inovasi di helikopter militer, hingga sistem ruang angkasanya.Baca Juga: Efisiensi Biaya Operasional Jadi Alasan Utama Anjloknya Permintaan Terhadap Airbus A380Momentum ini menjadi sangat penting bagi Airbus karena diketahui mereka tengah melebarkan sayap mereka di kawasan Uni Emirat Arab dan sekitarnya. Sebagaimana yang dilansir KabarPenumpang.com dari laman arabiangazette.com (12/11/2017), ada banyak pesawat operasional dan pengembangan Airbus yang dapat dilihat di area display statis, termasuk A350-900 – bagian dari keluarga besar A350 XWB all-new – yang juga rencananya akan melakukan demo terbang. Selain itu, Airbus juga akan menampilkan jet eksekutif ACJ 319ceo dalam kemitraannya bersama Comlux, perusahaan penerbangan charter yang berbasis di Swiss. Sementara itu, Airbus Defense and Space juga memamerkan A400M New Generation Airlifter, sebuah teknologi yang diketahui berperan penting dalam operasi bantuan pasca badai Karibia. Jangan lupakan EADS CASA C-295, gunship terbaru yang dirilis oleh Airbus Defense and Space.Masih banyak produk yang dipajang Airbus dalam pameran ini, seperti helikopter H160, NH90, hingga satelit telekomunikasi SES-12. Pengunjung juga dapat belajar tentang Zephyr, High Altitude Pseudo-Satellite (HAPS) yang berjalan secara eksklusif untuk tenaga surya sebagai pelengkap surveilans dan komunikasi berbasis satelit.Selain itu, para pengunjung juga dapat menjajal kabin Airbus A330neo terbaru, yang diketahui Airbus telah merombak total isi kabinnya dengan peralatanberteknologi tinggi sehingga dapat meningkatkan pengalaman para penumpangnya. Namun, terdapat sebuah ironi dibalik turut sertanya Airbus di perhelatan Dubai Airshow 2017 ini.Baca Juga: Sambut Pesanan Airbus A380 Ke-100, Emirates Pasang Livery Presiden Pertama Uni Emirat ArabPada awal bulan lalu, saham Airbus mengalami kejatuhan di perdagangan awal pekan, ketika para pelaku pasar menghubungkannya dengan peringatan yang dilontarkan oleh Tom Enders, selaku CEO Airbus bahwa produsen pesawat asal Eropa tersebut terancam terkena denda. Hal itu terkait dengan penyidikan korupsi yang sedang berlangsung, termasuk terkait suatu penjualan jet-jet tempur kepada Austria.Mungkin ikut sertanya Airbus dalam perhelatan Dubai Airshow 2017 ini merupakan usaha yang dilakukan untuk kembali meningkatkan sahamnya setelah sempat anjlok seperti yang sudah disebutkan di atas. Terlepas dari hipotesa di atas, Airbus tetap berada di ‘landasannya’ dan tetap berusaha untuk meningkatkan pelayanan kepada para pelanggannya.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Like this:Like Loading… RelatedSingapore AirShow 2018: Airbus Perkenalkan A350-1000 Untuk Pasar Trans-Pasifik08/02/2018In “Darat”Sambut Pesanan Airbus A380 Ke-100, Emirates Pasang Livery Presiden Pertama Uni Emirat Arab08/11/2017In “Bandara”Tersebar Isu Soal Kenyamanan Penumpang, Terlalu Dinikah Airbus Luncurkan A321XLR?21/06/2019In “Featured”
