Chapter 1
The Problem and Its Scope 1.1 Introduction
The world is constantly changing through the widespread availability of information and communication technologies that led to utmost capacity for dissemination of knowledge and information. The IT revolution has improved the economic growth and productivity thus, increasing demand for the business process outsourcing (BPO) industry drove the establishment and infrastructure of many IT parks and centres. IT parks in the Philippines are solid indicators of progress, both in the technological and economic spheres, because of their competitive workforce and multilingual abilities that most multinational companies would prefer to reach out.
The Department of Science and Technology-Information and Communications Technology office (DOST-ICT) together with the private sector, like Farlis Development Corporation, is pushing for the improvement of the industry in the country by working together to attract other companies to engage in offshore outsourcing in the country.
Cordova is a municipality located in the 6th district of Cebu Province in the Philippines. Most of Cordova lies on separate islands off the southern coast of Mactan island connected over three bridges. The emerging development from the neighbouring cities of Cordova will soon overflow in the municipality. Cordova is favourable for investments like IT Park due to a stable peace and order situation with a concrete road pavement. The current rapid increase of local or foreign…...

Parks

...For many people who live in cities, parks are an important part of the landscape. They provide a place for people to relax and play sports, as well as a refuge from the often harsh environment of a city. What people often overlook is that parks also provide considerable environmental benefits. One benefit of parks is that plants absorb carbon dioxide—a key pollutant—and emit oxygen, which humans need to breathe. According to one study, an acre of trees can absorb the same amount of carbon dioxide that a typical car emits in 11,000 miles of driving. Parks also make cities cooler. Scientists have long noted what is called the Urban Heat Island Effect: building materials such as metal, concrete, and asphalt absorb much more of the sun’s heat and release it much more quickly than organic surfaces like trees and grass. Because city landscapes contain so much of these building materials, cities are usually warmer than surrounding rural areas. Parks and other green spaces help to mitigate the Urban Heat Island Effect. Unfortunately, many cities cannot easily create more parks because most land is already being used for buildings, roads, parking lots, and other essential parts of the urban environment. However, cities could benefit from many of the positive effects of parks by encouraging citizens to create another type of green space: rooftop gardens. While most people would not think of starting a garden on their roof, human beings have been planting gardens on rooftops for......

What Are the Disney Resorts and Parks Aiming for?

...What are the Disney resorts and parks aiming for? 1) The Disney resorts and parks were aiming for a market that focused on creating images, experiences and products to customers that emphasized fun, imagination and service. It aimed to provide a place where customers could escape the cares of the real world through the "magic" of legendary fairytale and familiar Disney characters. The market targeted families and children and the company had already built a popular brand that was associated with wholesome family entertainment. 2) Was Disney's choice of the Paris site a mistake? Yes, the choice of the Paris site was a mistake because the lifestyle, culture and ideas of Paris were very different from the culture of the Americans which caused many of the people of Paris to be in opposition with one critic referring to it as "a horror made of cardboard, plastic, and appalling colors...taken straight out of comic book written for obese Americans". The site initially seemed ideal because of the location could provide access to millions of people. Paris was a highly attractive destination and Europeans generally take more vacation time than Americans. Disney however did not anticipate the backlash they faced due to significant cultural differences such as eating behaviors were different, French visitors were highly intolerant of long lines, Disney's grooming standards for employees were deemed too strict and excessive by the French and were met with protest and the area that......

Theme Parks

...Themes, Entertainment ________________________________________ The theme park, as an experience design, differs from amusement parks in the critical design intent of its architects. Theme landscapes are developed to distill a glimpse of world /out of this world locations, not unlike a world's fair, at a single location. These entertainment complexes are familiar vacation territories for generations of the world's travel public, as theme parks are deliberately designed to be internationally-focused attractants. The successful dynamism of these landscapes designed for appeal and dependable itinerary offer assurances of what can be expected, with safety and value for the expense of time and money. Generally, themed landscapes perpetuate and promote folk history and cultural traditions, as these are exploited, yet celebrated, simultaneously. Perception of space in the themed environment, without apologies, is inauthentic, but never-the-less successful, and delightful moments for the viewer. Intentionally, architecture is manipulated in order to impart the necessary factors which will aid in promoting happiness by use of ironic realism. Despite pretentions, everyone enjoys themed experiences at some level. Ambivalent designers are not undermined by the pristine and ineffectual notions the design profession propagates on what characterizes good design. Rather, the successful destination architect gives social value and art to underappreciated human elements in architecture.......

Ski Resort

.... ~ HarvardBusinessSchool 9-395-019 Rev. January 24, 1997 Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation As Charlie Mayfield, vice president of Marketing for Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation (SSRC) in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, looked out of bis office and saw the lines at the ticket windows on a warm, sunny day in March 1993, he smiled to himself. SSRCwas having its best year ever and had maintained its position as one of the premier North American ski resorts. SSRCwas not, however, immune to the difficulties faced by the ski industry. First, Mayfield was concerned about the trend among customers of coming to Steamboat and other ski resorts and spending fewer of their vacation days skiing on the mountain, preferring instead to participate in other wintertime activities such as snowmobiling. Second, while skier days1 had continued to increase in Colorado over the last several years, the number of skier days in the entire United States had actually decreased. Furthermore, Steamboat's share of the Colorado skier market had steadily decreased since 1990. FinaIly, Mayfield was concerned about Steamboat's low percentage, relative to other resorts, of visitors who intended to make a repeat visit to the resort. In the 1991-92season, the percentage of Steamboat destination skiers intending to make a repeat visit to Steamboat declined to 55%; other resorts, such as the group of Disney Resorts, claimed as high as a 90% repeat visit rate. These trends, combined with Steamboat......
