Accommodation Preferences

...with respect to construction cost, sales price, and also profits. There were several reasons taken into considerations throughout the difference of these two types of unit. Commercial units have higher demand than residential units do as shown in Table 4.1.2. This is generally due to the purpose of investment as it generates more profits, compared to residential property investment. This is because commercial real estate is well thought-out as a preliminary indicator of the growth of the residential real estate market. On top of that, commercial units normally come out with low-rise building of either one or two storeys. On the ground floor there are shops, which open up to certain foot way while upstairs, it can be a residential accommodation. Nowadays, people would go for commercial units as they can run their businesses as well as to use the upper floors for residential purposes. In terms of construction cost, commercial units are cheaper than residential units because they actually have the same design as the shop offices, a row of buildings, which are linked together. 29 Thus, taking into account the single or two storey’s commercial units, single storey construction is always cheaper than two storey’s because the cost of scaffolding and transporting materials. Floors above ground are more expensive than floors on the extra beams and support required.

On Reasonable Accommodation

...On Reasonable Accommodation INTRODUCTION Our modern society has long been governed by classic liberal notions advocated by thinkers such as John Stuart Mill and John Locke, Emmanuel Kant. A traditional conception of equality is generally prioritized in their work, outlining a highly formal approach premised on uniform treatment, colour-blindness and an emphasis on the Rule of Law. However, in the contemporary context of today, such an ideological hope tends to play the role of the ignorant fool, who disregards the complexity of our society. We are in need of a system that opens its eyes, stops hiding behind a “veil of ignorance” (Sandel, 1998:24) and adopts a more flexible approach. The Bouchard – Taylor Commission demonstrates exactly this notion. This essay will argue in favour of one of the major claims made by Gerard Bouchard & Charles Taylor, that reasonable accommodation, in essence a more substantive equality perspective is a necessary, if not mandatory approach that a multicultural society is in dire need of adopting, clarifying and deeply enforcing. I will discuss the logic and rational that underpins harmonization measures by exploring how social norms & ideologies have played an especially important role is systemic discrimination, then, how Canadian Law and legal institutions have played a role in constructing and maintaining racial stereotypes, and then, how the media plays an especially vital role in further denouncing minority groups. I will then......

Communication Accommodation Theory Journal

...Kayla D. King Journal 9 December 1, 2013 CAT Part 1 The Communication Accommodation Theory came about after; Giles realized that speech goes beyond twangs, pronunciation, and gaps in speech. In 1987 Giles coined the Communication Accommodation Theory as a theory that is based on intercultural communication. Accommodation is the ongoing shift in communication that is either toward or away from others. This theory is based on two strategies: convergence and divergence. Both are seen as accommodation because of the constant shift in communication. Convergence is a strategy that is used when an individual adjusts their speech to be similar to the person they are speaking with. Another strategy that is based on convergence is called discourse management. Discourse management is the act of carefully choosing topics that will not generate tension or awkward moments. In contrast, divergence is the act of moving away from others by not adjusting speech. An individual emphasizing the differences between he or she and another person is another way to divert. In intergenerational relationships, the elderly tend to use self-handicapping as a face-saving strategy. Self-handicapping, in this case, is when the elderly use being older as an excuse. Another divergent strategy is maintenance. Maintenance is continuing to use original communication without regard for others, also known as underaccommodation. Moreover, overaccommodation is patronizing belittling speech,...

...for Sales of Mover Enterprises, Inc., respondents. Melquiades P. de Leon for petitioner. Rogelio A. Ajes for private respondent.   REGALADO, J.: Petitioner seeks the annulment of the decision 1 of respondent Court of Appeals, promulgated on September 8, 1987, which reversed the decision of the trial Court 2 dismissing the complaint for consignation filed by therein plaintiff Ricardo S. Santos, Jr. The parties are substantially agreed on the following facts as found by both lower courts: In 1980, plaintiff Ricardo S. Santos, Jr. was the vice-president of Mover Enterprises, Inc. in-charge of marketing and sales; and the president of the said corporation was Atty. Oscar Z. Benares. On April 30, 1980, Atty. Benares, in accommodation of his clients, the spouses Jaime and Clarita Ong, issued Check No. 093553 drawn against Traders Royal Bank, dated June 14, 1980, in the amount of P45,000.00 (Exh- 'I') payable to defendant Ernestina Crisologo-Jose. Since the check was under the account of Mover Enterprises, Inc., the same was to be signed by its president, Atty. Oscar Z. Benares, and the treasurer of the said corporation. However, since at that time, the treasurer of Mover Enterprises was not available, Atty. Benares prevailed upon the plaintiff, Ricardo S. Santos, Jr., to sign the aforesaid chEck as an alternate story. Plaintiff Ricardo S. Santos, Jr. did sign the check. It appears that the check (Exh. '1') was issued to defendant Ernestina......

Is Airbnb a Threat to Traditional Accommodation?

...Is AirBnB a threat on traditional accommodation? With the rapid growth of Airbnb, I think that it poses a real threat to traditional accommodation offerings in the Caribbean. AirBnB is an online service which allows hosts to rent out their homes or spare bedrooms. This has become a threat to the traditional hotel companies, which are now trying to figure out ways to compete in the sharing economy. In the sharing economy, any person can list their own property online for rent which AirBnB can clay claim to being the world’s largest hotel chain without owning a single room. Airbnb has become more appealing to investors by its low overhead. Compared to traditional hotels, the company doesn’t have to worry about the high turnover rates of bellhops and front desk clerks like hotels do, and it doesn’t have to concern itself with real estate prices and franchise partnerships. Many people who have used AirBnB said that hotels might offer predictability, but they are looking for an adventure, which they never found in a hotel. Also they considered it to be much cheaper than traditional hotel accommodation and that they can exist a little more locally and authentically. Hotels are already feeling the effects of Airbnb’s approach to room rentals, but continued growth could force the hotels to lower room prices. Traditional hotels should form partnership with AirBnB. They could offer packages to guest of AirBnB at a reasonable cost that would be attractive to the guest. Also......

Accommodations and Modifications

...Reflective Analysis: Accommodations and Modifications Tracey Sullivan SPE 526: Grand Canyon University May 23, 2012 Reflective Analysis: Accommodations and Modifications Teaching students with special needs is a challenge and requires dedication. I have always been told that as a teacher you are either going to love teaching children with special needs or you don’t. I feel that it is vitally important to know what you are facing when having to work with this population of people. Disabled students are very unique in their own way and require special attention to be able to address concerns in a way that it is beneficial to the student. Considering that each student learns differently, there are many teaching styles that can be used to help disabled students to learn. Also as a teacher you must evaluate the student so that you are able to know whether or not accommodations and modifications are needed in order to help the student to learn as much as possible. During the assignment, I had to do fifteen hours of observation hours in either an inclusive or self-contained classroom setting. So I notified a school and was able to do these hours in a self-contained classroom. During this week, state tests were being administered in the regular education class, so therefore the inclusive classrooms weren’t available. Special education students are required to take state test as well, but they have a test that’s been modified to the needs of the students. In this classroom......
