Within this option, you have the opportunity to choose one of the three following topics among tourism industrys impact in a country (USA, Turkey, Jamaica etc.), a series of countries or places (countries in the Mediterranean region, Caribbean or South Eastern region of the USA including the SC) and write a minimum of eight (8) pages professional paper for your final term project. The idea is to draw parallels, similarities or differences of associated impacts in more than one place. Recognize that your final project will be worth 25 % of the total grade for the course! The projects are to be completed individually (no group work required in this course). Choose either one or all of the following three topics. 1. Comparative Analysis of Tourisms Environmental Impactsecological impacts (on balance of life and natural resources). You could even compare different communities and countries in terms of impacts. 2. Comparative Analysis of Sociological and/or cultural impact of tourism on communities. 3. Comparative Analysis of Tourisms economic feasibility and economic impacts on communities. To correctly do this project, you will have to read and synthesize literature on tourisms social, cultural or environmental impacts using established social science journals. Note: if you wish you can compare all impacts at the same time, but it is not a must. If it is easier for you to talk about only one group of impacts, do so. However, you will notice when researchers talk about impacts they tend to mix them. We expect at least 10 to 12 refereed tourism papers in your references from social science tourism journals like the Annals of Tourism Research, Tourism Management, Tourism Analysis, and Journal of Sustainable Tourism. If for some reason you cannot find tourism impact studies done/published related to your site/country, still evaluate the site you have chosen in relation to the readings you have done. For example, if you cannot find a social impact study done about Germany, you may choose to read/synthesize social impact studies done elsewhere in Austria/Switzerland but draw parallels, comparisons and conclusions regarding your choice of the country. Internet papers from mills are not accepted. All papers must come from Professional Scientific Journals listed above.
Students will take on the role of manager and discuss how they would deal with a flurry of negative reviews.You are a manager in a hotel and recently have seen several negative reviews posted on popular travel websites about your hotel. The reviews have complained about unprofessional service staff, unreliable wi-fi, and dissatisfaction with the free breakfast.How should you respond to these reviews?For each passing year, online reviews help business growing more and more. In term of 93% customers said these reviews impacted on their decisions (Podium n.d). However, not all the review is being fair enough to the business, some might cause our business to troubles. Many of the travel website such as TripAdvisor have the aware on malicious and negatives reviews tool. It helps us as a moderator check if the reviewers are verified or clone accounts. Be timely, before taking any reply back to the guest, I would make it clear and be calm enough to not saying anything make me regret later. In the prompt manner, I will get back on them without 24 hours, it shows that I truly care and listen on what they say. I concern on their matter. Honestly, it will be weird to say thank you for those negative comments, but it should be help out calming the other readers whom concern about the issue at that same time, a sweetly thanks will sufficient against any more arguments in online. Deeply take my words to apologies about their bad experience, I would explain that I feel sorry for what they had in the trips. Offer a solution by asking them brings it offline, we will reach them out by direct call on private email will surely work.Should you respond at all? Why or why not?Stangl and Regler (2016) shows that the majority firm will get in touch with the authors or reviewers of these negative feedback directly on online platform. Although it is freaking frustrating for us to see these negative comments on social media, somehow, we can turn them to the perfect opportunity. We dont have to response every negative comment but staying engage shows the authors we are are all ears to their mattersWhat actions should you take after seeing these reviews?First of all, ensure those reviews are not scam or clone, as a moderator of the site we have to report to TripAdvisor whenever it malicious people try to do ruin our business face. Then, taking role as a manager, I will have to double check the case and guarantee it happened in the hotel. Next, make it a good way for both of us have a direct conversation.

Case Study Notes: HTM 340 Technology Issues in HTM Chapter 02 Assignment 03 Julie is the assistant general manager for a local independent hotel. She was recently hired due to her technological expertise. The owners of the hotel wished to increase their propertys network security. Other hotels in the area were the victims of security breaches, and the owners feared that they would be next. Julie knew from her training and past experience that what was needed first was a situational analysis to find points of vulnerability. She wanted to handle the major problem spots first before she dug into the more technical matters and relatively quickly identified some potential hazards. She compiled a list of the first ten vulnerable points she encountered and turned it over to the owners that morning. Vulnerabilities include: 1. Front desk staff is giving out too much information over the telephone 2. The room holding the network servers is unlocked 3. The computer system does not require users to change their passwords often enough 4. Both guests and employees use the same network 5. Employee and guest smartphones can access the hotels wireless network 6. Firewall software requires manual updates 7. No employee network policy currently exists 8. Software installation is allowed on all computers 9. Business center computers do not require passwords 10. She was able to access the hotels wireless from across the street After receiving the list, the owners told Julie that a competing hotel a couple of blocks away just had their network hacked and were unsure of the damage. Since this was the fifth hotel in their area to be breached this week, they were worried that they might be next. They wanted her to act fast. Julie was by no means done with her audit and was sure that she would find many more points of vulnerability, but she believed that these were most of the big ones. She knew that network security was both an art and a science, but she needed to start somewhere to secure the operation. Learning Activity Questions: 1. What should Julie do first, and why should she do this first? 2. List in order your next nine priorities (plan of attack) and justify your answers. 3. What other possible vulnerable points exist for the hotel? You may refer to the hotel industry as a whole when answering this last question.

You must find such a site in your own country and write a critical essay in which you reflect upon its contested or dissonant nature. The site must be linked to a very sensitive topic or historical period/event which makes it contested by at least two different groups. Focusing on the site interpretation, you must select three important aspects which make it contested or dissonant. For each of the three aspects you must provide the official perspective as well as the contrasting perspective(s) of the alternative/opposing group(s). The complete absence of references or discussions on a topic on one of the two sides can, in itself, be one of the two perspectives you are bringing into the discussion.

For your informative speech, you must use one of three types described in the Chapter 13 Power Point, which are: Object, Event, and Concept. **You may NOT choose a Process speech for this assignment.** For this second graded speech, emphasis will be placed on Delivery, Preparation and Appearance and Content Organization. However, you should pay attention to all five categories of public speaking on the evaluation rubric. Failure to stay within the time minimum/maximum will result is an automatic loss of one letter grade. (In real speech contexts, speakers will be asked to stop speaking when their time is up.) Topic The success of your first speech will be dependent on the quality of your topic and the information presented. The following are examples of topics used in the past. Please do not choose one of them: Object (includes person, place, thing): Hawaii. NH White Mountains. NFL football helmet. LL Bean boot. Instagram. Event: Pope Francis visits the US. The Olympics. The Super Bowl. Concept: Bitcoin currency. Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Capitalism. Free speech. Remember: This is NOT a persuasive speech and I would encourage you to avoid topics that are controversial to remain objective in your delivery. If you use any information from a credible source (book, website, etc.), please give verbal attribution to those sources in your speech (e.g. “According to X,” or “X states”). You must also list your references in the comments section when you submit your informative speech. Please avoid sources that lack credibility such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, and websites.
