Chapter 1
Introduction
Over the years, Hotel business gives a great contribution to the economic progress of the world. Tourists go to places to see spots that attract their attention, and to accommodate them, hotels were built. Many tourists consider luxury as a factor in finding hotels to check into, and so in Europe, hotels vary from accents such as Italian, British, French, and even
Irish. There are even hotels that offer affordable services that attract those who are price-conscious tourists. In the Philippines, hotels play a big role in boosting the tourism and to give accommodation to various tourists from all over the world. The City of Davao, which is the center of tourism in
Mindanao, houses many kinds of hotels, including big and small ones, expensive and also economy class.
Hotels and the hospitality industry have been recorded as far back as biblical time when Mary and Joseph arrived in Bethlehem. As the Bible depicts, Mary and Joseph were refused accommodations because there “was no more room available at the inn.” Since the beginning of time, people have

travelled for commerce, religion, family, health, and recreation. The first hotel built in the Philippines was the Hotel Del Oriente in Binondo Manila.
The Manila Hotel was built on 1912 and since then, became a Philippine
Landmark. One of the first hotels in Davao was built on the year 1996, and through the years, many hotels followed.

Specialisation in Davao City

...Diversification of a City’s Industry: A Case Study on Davao City’s Agriculture and Business Process Outsourcing economy Introduction With a thrust to enhance its position as an economic magnate in the Southern Philippines, there has been debate on the issue wether Davao City government and private sector broaden its economy and identify itself towards a different sector or maintain being an agricultural-based economy alone. Initiatives were taken for Davao City to take advantage of the business process outsourcing (BPO) or call center business opportunities as these give the city an edge in a global scale . This paper will argue that a diverse industry for a city’s economy is more stable than a specialized one. In this case, Davao City should be open to new industries that are brought about by technology and global modernization and this is on the contemporary industry of BPOs and technology service. It may seem that investing on this may be a volatile risk for an agriculture-known city, but keeping the City’s diverse industry strong and open to new development in its own respective ways will make the economy more progressing and increase potential for growth (Jacobs, 1969). The proponent shall base its position that a diverse industry is favorable than specializing, by looking at cases with similar economic stance on the two different industry scenario and on theories of related studies on such cases. Background The Davao Region and the neighboring provinces located in......

...increasing and it seems as if Hawaii's hotels are still outdated. Tony Standford acknowledges that such technology is essential in our economy: "It's absolutely crucial to our economy. We are competing with world-class destinations in Asia who won't hesitate to spend money on technology that will improve the visitors' experience." (qtd. In Staradvertiser). Standford came up with the idea to provide a managed information technology service to local hotels after a meet with a Waikiki hotel manager. The hotel manager explained that their PBX (Telephone and network system) had reached the end of its life cycle and would cost a substantial amount of money to renew and still remain out of date. With this opportunity in mind, Standford created a new modern IT company. His objective is to upgrade hotel systems by providing state-of-the art technology products such as wireless internet, Netflix, and tablets in every room to replace the telephones. This system has the ability to store all contents and apps in the cloud, allowing software updates to the system to be remotely handled through the cloud. The use of this technological advancement in hotels will greatly reduce expenses by eliminating the cost of maintaining hotel servers. When relating this article to the theory of supply and demand, results lead to a simultaneous occurrence of events. Technological advancements will produce a positive supply shock as well as a Positive demand shock. If Hotels switch to a modern IT, they......

It’s a gift to us people during our bad days or the not-so-bad-days (stressful days). The “ancestor” of bubble tea originated in the early 80’s from a tea shop called Chun Shui Tang (春水堂) in Taichung, Taiwan. Unlike the fully loaded pearl milk tea, the oldest form of bubble tea was made by mixing cold black tea with fructose syrup using a shaker. According to Liu Han-Chieh (劉漢介), the founder of the tea shop, his wife named it bubble tea after seeing the layer of foam that ended up on top of the tea. After successfully marking a turning point for Taiwanese tea culture, Liu introduced the pearl milk tea in 1987. In the beginning, other ingredients were added to the milk tea such as fruits and sugar coated yam. (http://recultured.com/fooddrinks/09/the-history-of-pearl-milk-tea). Milk tea is a very sweet tea that is often used in boba. Milk tea/ Boba is a drink consisting of tea and balls of tapioca/pearl and honey.

That case establishes the basis by which the court in Margreiter determined the level of duty the New Hotel Monteleone owed to Mr. Margreiter. It may help you with the remainder of this homework.

The "record," which is made by both parties during the trial, including all objections and other submissions of evidence, is binding on the appeals court, unless it was erroneous or not reasonable to believe or accept that evidence. Further, decisions of fact and credibility are typically left to the jury to make, and appeals courts prefer not revisiting those decisions (unless they are beyond the weight of the evidence or defy credulity.) Because the jury can weigh the body language of the witnesses during trial, and the record on appeal can't show that, appeal courts prefer allowing juries to make "fact-finding" decisions. Judges on appeal try to look for legal theories to overturn cases (or uphold them.) They make the "law"......
