Profitability with Sustainability Practices Going green in the modern era benefits not only the environment but also the companies. Being environmental-friendly must not necessarily carry cost implications as it is an avenue for new market opportunities, a catalyst for innovation, and a potential revenue stream. A good section of businesses in the hospitality sector have been motivated to pursue sustainability out of idealism and pragmatism (Haanaes, Michael, Jurgens, & Rangan, 2013). However, some of them have consistently recorded growth and generated profit margins from sustainable undertakings. These gains are clear demonstrations that the trade-offs between sustainability and profitability are not necessary. Rather, entities in the hospitality sectors can pursue sustainability for its benefits while still exploiting the powerful path it offers to reinvent key business aspects, such as scalability.
Chapter 1: Abstract The jury system can be traced from the ancient English system. The jury system was introduced in the United Kingdom in the 12th century by Henry II. During this period, the jury system was meant to hear and determine land disputes. The jury was initially made up of about twelve free men. The jury system practice is now common in the United States of America. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an Islamic state. The country’s judicial system is based on Islamic laws, popularly known as Sharia laws. At the apex of the country’s legal system is the king. The system grants the king the powers of a court of appeal and a source of pardon. Furthermore, the kingdom’s legal system is divided into three main parts, that is, the Sharia courts, Board of Grievances, and the third part is the various governmental committees within the ministries. The three main components of the kingdom’s judicial system are further divided into sub-groups. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia does not practice the modern law because its form of the legal system does not adhere to Montesquieu theory and spirit of separation of power. The kingdom does not promote separation…
Rocket 88 by Jackie Breston and his Delta Cats Rocket 88 by Jackie Breston and his Delta Cats (1951) is the first song I listened to. This record was recognized in 1991 by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the first ever Rock music to be recorded. The signature sound of a distorted guitar was what qualified it as the first Rock and Roll song. The interesting fact about this song is that the distorted guitar sound happened accidentally after the amp of the guitar got ruined as the band was traveling to record the song (Esmonde par. 3). I found this recording surprising and confusing with regards to whom it was attributed to. Some people attribute the song to Ike Turner and his Kings of Rhythm and others to Jackie Breston. However, further research revealed that Jackie Breston was a member of Ike Turner’s band as a saxophonist.

Introduction Online learning and coursework have become popular in the last 20 years with many institutions of higher learning having some kind of online learning. This is driven by the need to increase learning opportunities, incorporate people from different cultures to gain a broader perspective, and the fact that some course can be learned quickly. Institutions of higher learning are now incorporating online learning into their learning models as long-term strategies but the challenge has been on finding ways of ensuring that students are engaged in asynchronous online discussions, seeing as this is a critical part of learning. Just like traditional face-to-face learning, it is important to ensure that learners participate in the learning process as it builds confidence and ensures that learners are engaged with the course material.
Introduction Migration takes place in prosperous / dysfunctional conditions. The modern economic and political situation in the world has significantly increased the intensity. According to the Federal Migration Service, the number of migrants in the USA is increasing every year. According to the calculations, there are more than 10 million people. The annual population growth in the CIS and Baltic countries in the 1990s was about 250 thousand people. The number of migrants in the USA is 5% of its population. A significant part of the migration flow in the USA is the most attractive from an economic point of view. According to the results of research conducted by the research program in 2001-2002, 28% of illegal migrants are aimed at staying in our country. Migrations spread ethnic and cultural mosaic, reveal and aggravate ethno cultural contradictions between different groups of the population, experience social tensions. Increasingly, people’s attitude towards visitors is unfriendly and even hostile. According to the data of the Levada Center in 2009, about 67% of Russians believed that their city or district could do without visitors. In 2002, 45% of Americans suggested restricting entry to the country, while 44% were in favor of eliminating barriers for…
The society has a set of rules and conventions that prescribe what constitutes acceptable behavior and what is not or out of order. The social norms guide the way people should conduct themselves or relate to each other. When we are growing up, we get to appreciate and practice these norms. For instance, it is abnormal for one to walk around naked or dressed in a manner that is unfit. Anyone who engages in activities that are considered to be outside the norms is perceived to be abnormal. I grew up knowing that every shoe is worn in a specific foot. I decided to deviate from the norm, as part of a mini-experiment, by wearing the right show on the left foot and the left shoe on the right foot.
Position When filling the questionnaire, indicating ones professional position was left optional for the respondent. Although some of the respondents left the part blank, a majority of them felt the need to indicate their profession or the positions they hold in their respective careers. Evidently, the positions range from across a wide array of professional occupations. Gender Filling in gender was also optional for the respondents. Some of them indicated their gender while others ignored this part of the questionnaire. Age The participants were required to indicate their age when filling the questionnaire. All the respondents indicated their age brackets on the form. Over 90% of this population was aged 35 years and above. Only two were between the ages of 30 and 34. Such a trend can be attributed to the fact that individuals over the age of 35 have already established themselves as professionals in their respective fields. Individuals below the age of 30 do not necessarily indulge in business activities, particularly trade fairs since most of them are still pursuing their studies.
