Opportunities and Challenges of Tourism Financing

A Study on Demand and Supply; Status, Structure, Composition and Effectiveness of Tourism Financing in Nepal

by Dr. Bishnu Prasad Gautam

08/30/2008

The study examines the tourism and tourism financing in triangular form. The first is the impact of tourism and tourism financing on the economic growth and development of the country. The second is the response of the Tourism Business Enterprises (demand side) about the pattern and effectiveness of tourism financing and the third one is the views of the Banks and Financial Institutions (supply side). It uses both primary and secondary data and applies various mathematical and statistical tools such as ratio analysis, correlation coefficient, Phi-coefficient, Chi-square test, t-Test for two sample means and regression analysis (OLS). It found a significant impact of tourism and tourism financing in the economic development of the country. Added to this, it found a significant variation i...

Tourism Writing

A New Literary Genre Unveiling the History, Mystery, and Economy of Places and Events

by Mary S. Palmer

08/20/2018

In this era of advanced technology keeping students' attention often becomes difficult. Teachers need to find new ways to create interest. In writing classes, choosing a topic that involves students is a priority. A new genre, Tourism Writing, is an innovative and effective means of teaching students composition. It can fill this need.Tourism Writing focuses on a particular place or event, provides photos and information on nearby points of interest, and directly invites visitors. This book provides an understanding of how Tourism Writing benefits people in all areas of life. This transfers to classroom assignments when students are asked to write a poem in this genre and they are given lists of possible topics, but they also have the option to choose their own place or event. It becomes a...

by Fred R. Schumann, PhD

01/06/2008

The topic of tourism development has been explored by a number of scholars and increasingly, over the past decade, more literature has become available on tourism development on small islands . For many of the small island territories or nations, they share a number of major issues in the area of tourism. These include vast distances from source markets, foreign investment and the resulting leakage of revenue, over-dependence on tourism (mono-structured economy), dependence on imports, and an overburdened infrastructure, just to name a few (Gössling 2003; Harrison, 2004; McElroy, 2006). Most island destinations rely on stakeholders from not only a single sector, but from both private and public sectors to tackle these issues (Buhalis, 1999). As a tourism-dependent economy, Guam receives...

The Early Conservation Movement in Argentina and the National Park Service

A Brief History of Conservation, Development, Tourism and Sovereignty

by Arthur Oyola-Yemaiel

08/29/2000

This study explores the emergence and development of the conservation movement in Argentina during the twentieth century. I argue that the development of the conservation movement has been linked to shifts in the broader spectrum of Argentina's political arena as well as the international political situation as nations competed for the sovereignty of newly acquired territories after the Indian Wars. This book explores the development of Argentina as a nation in relation to conservation of its natural resources as a counter measure to resource extraction. Thus, I establish the relationship between the need for national sovereignty and socio-economic development via the formulation of nature based tourism industry. This strategy was developed by Excequiel Bustillo and spearheaded by the fo...

Boyington Oak

A Grave Injustice

by Mary S. Palmer

11/06/2019

One hundred and eighty-five years ago, a live oak tree sprouted in the Church Street Graveyard as Charles Boyington predicted it would as proof of his innocence. Police charged nineteen-year-old journeyman printer, poet, and musician with the murder of his best friend, Nathaniel Frost, in that same graveyard May 10, 1834. His pleas proclaiming innocence went unheard as an unqualified jury convicted him, and the guilty verdict remains suspect even today. The tainted jury selection process allowed two unqualified men to serve, and the prosecutor used only circumstantial evidence to convict Boyington. This story is based on events that have since become folklore in Mobile, Alabama. It is about a nineteen-year-old printer, Charles R.S. Boyington, who was unjustly convicted and hanged for kil...

Geoparks and Geotourism

New Approaches to Sustainability for the 21st Century

by Neda Torabi Farsani, Celeste Coelho, Carlos Costa, & Carlos Neto de Carvalho (editors)

12/28/2011

This book aims to identify geotourism and geoparks as gateways to socio-cultural, socio-environmental, and socio-economic sustainability in rural areas. At present, geotourism is a new movement helping travelers to increase their knowledge about natural resources, the cultural identities of host communities, and ways of preserving them. The ‘emerging tourism’ niche of geotourism is still at an early stage of commercial development in most countries, and geoparks as a sustainable development model for protected areas are pioneers in the development of geotourism marketing. The establishment of the European Geoparks Network and the Global Geoparks Network are positive steps toward the preservation and presentation of geo-heritage as a new tourist attraction. Geoparks and Geotourism prov...

Coming of Age in American Anthropology

Margaret Mead and Paradise

by Malopa'upo Isaia

03/27/1999

This is the book, and a must read, of the century. It's anthropological history in the re-making. The American Anthropological best seller, the Chief Malopa'upo Isaia, a descendant of the Tuimanu'a (king of Manu'a), the very people in Margaret Mead's book, has now raised some very serious traditional and legal issues, in relation to Margaret Mead's book, Columbia University's role, and the American Anthropological Association's 'professional' role. In his book, "Coming of age in American Anthropology", the Chief is now ordering the removal, withdrawal, and the disassociation, of every material by Margaret Mead on his cultural intellectual property. He has also outlined several legal issues which will have serious ramifications globally, on any academic who undertakes any cultural fi...

Indigenous People and the Roles of Culture, Law and Globalization

Comparing the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Africa

by Kennedy M. Maranga

09/06/2013

This book explores the history, culture, rights and the effects of globalization on indigenous people in the Americas, Asia-Pacific, and Africa from an evaluative and critical perspective. Unlike discipline-based textbooks, this volume seeks to contribute to the social discourse around indigenousness and to engage readers in a shared sense of humanity and empowerment for these groups of individuals. Among the issues addressed are: who indigenous people are, culture and colonization, self-determination, the impact of legal theory and judicial decisions, land rights, poverty, lack of healthcare, international human rights law, tourism, treaties, and globalization. The book concludes by addressing what it means to be an indigenous person in the 21st century, and calling upon policymakers to ...

The IVF Guide

What You Need to Know About Fertility, Infertility and Available Treatment Options

by Ahmet Ozyigit, PhD; Savas Ozyigit, MD

09/06/2018

IVF Treatment is a very personal journey- one with ups and downs. While there might be loads of information on infertility out there, it is very difficult to find the right information that fits your unique needs. Search for the right treatment option begins with the understanding that every patient is unique and standard treatments do not produce the same outcome for everyone. This concise and accessible overview of reproductive medicine in the 21st century seeks to demystify in vitro fertilization for prospective parents and students. The IVF Treatment Guide walks readers through the fundamentals of human reproductive anatomy and physiology as well as disease processes that cause infertility. This guidebook also highlights various fertility testing methods and treatment options that are ...
