According to Frost (2004) the fascination with new technology has changed the way tourism providers interact and trade with their customers. The primary focus for this essay is to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of direct selling for travel and tour management. In this essay, the perspectives of both tourism operators and tourists will be considered. This essay will be presented in four sections. The first section will outline direct selling and identify the users of direct selling. The second section will discuss the advantages and disadvantages for a tourist using direct selling. The third section will discuss the advantages and disadvantages for a tourism provider using direct selling. Finally, the essay will be concluded summarising the key advantages and disadvantages for direct selling.

In the past, travel agents have been an intermediary for tourists and tourism sellers. Travel agents have been used by tourists to access a wide range of tourism service providers; likewise tourism providers have used travel agents to gain access to numerous customers (Frost, 2004). Due to the extreme competition in the tourism industry, tourism providers are looking to cut costs in order to win over customers with lower prices. This is currently being done by cutting down on the commission costs payed to intermediary such as travel agents and introducing direct selling. In recent years the rapid growth and vast accessibility of the internet has allowed the transition to direct selling to take over. The internet creates availability and accessibility for tourists and tourism providers to do business while providing equivalent information at a lower cost than a travel agent can (Bennett & Lai, 2005). Moreover, Frost (2004) identifies four methods of direct selling other than the internet where tourism businesses are able to get in contact and do business…...

...working population relative to the consuming population. Mason refines the ratio to incorporate age variation in productivity and consumption. Mason shows that the economic support ratio for Southeast Asia fell during the 1950’s and 1960’s. This was the period of the first stage of the demographic transition, illustrated in the graph 4.1 below. Then beginning in 1970 the economic support ratio rose rapidly, and is projected to continue to rise for some time to come. This corresponds to the second phase of the demographic transition illustrated by the graph 4.2 below. Graph 4.1 Graph 4.2 Graph 4.3 These Asian economies were characterized by, maximum use of high–yielding crop varieties, and investing massively in the further development of new varieties; low fertilizer prices, increased food supply. In fact food output per capita increased by 36% in Asia and 47% in East Asia between 1963 and 1992 (contrast Latin America, with only a 13% increase and Africa with a decline of 7%). (Mason- 2003) 6. Lessons to be Learned First Demographic dividend usually occurs late in the demographic transition when the fertility rate falls and the youth dependency rate declines. During this demographic window of opportunity, output per capita rises. The demographic dividend played a role in the "economic miracles" of the East Asian Tigers, that the economic boom in Ireland in the 1990s (the Celtic tiger) was in part due to the legalization of contraception in 1979 and subsequent decline......

A Comparison of the Child Rearing Practices of the “Baby Boomer” Era and Those of the New Millennium

...Before the nineteenth century, maternal instinct was considered the only tool essential for successful childrearing. Beginning in the 20th century the science of child development was first established, and with each subsequent generation new theories are introduced about the most appropriate way to raise children. This scientific development brought about the deliverance of an abundant amount of child rearing advice that could be found in anything from books to magazines, journals, and public health pamphlets. This surplus of often-contradictory information frequently caused undue parental anxiety and stress. One 1920’s mother who was overwhelmed by all the wisdom confessed, “I just try to do what you say, but I am a nervous wreck just trying to stay calm.” Although parental pressure and anxiety has been seen as a recurrent grievance through every generation, stress levels have progressively increased to what they are now. An analysis of the child rearing advice given in the early part of the 20th century and that of the new millennium revealed the following things: a steady progression from an authoritarian type of discipline to that of a more authoritative type, the emergence of a paternal role in child rearing, the apparent difference in personality traits of adults that were raised under particular parenting methods, and several distinct reasons for the change in the advice being given. Even before the start of the seventeenth century, experts were concerned with how,......

...sharpen a variety of skills, and to learn some new ones. Graduate education represents mastery of an academic discipline. As distinct from undergraduate education, graduate education provides advance knowledge in the field of study that is characterized by specialized training in the discipline’s theory, research, methodology, and critical analysis. Since graduate education is concentrated, learning is more self-directed and involves more individualized instruction and mentoring than does learning for baccalaureate degree. A master’s degree provides student with the skills necessary to generate new knowledge and to apply existing new knowledge. It also provides student with the professional ethics and values of the discipline. Graduate school is training in research. It is for people who love research, scholarship and teaching for their own sake and for the difference they can sometimes make in the world. (Phil. Agre. 1996). Graduate school generally takes five to eight years. The first year is often the worst. It usually consists of an overwhelming amount of structured reading designed to give general background in the basic text of the particular field. Graduate education requires significant investment of financial and personal resources and students should be able to dedicate themselves much attention and energy.

Federated Searching: a New Era

...Federated Searching: A New Era “Only librarians like to search; everyone else likes to find” (Tennant, 2003). While most librarians teach research strategies including: Boolean logic, accessing carefully chosen databases, and indexing; students are often discouraged and frustrated using these techniques. Most students simply want to Google their requests. For many students a simple keyword search is a convenient, simple process for locating information. Federated searching is providing options that may strike a happy medium for students and librarians alike by providing a keyword option to access the library’s databases. Federated searching is software or a service that allows multiple sources to be searched simultaneously. A library is required to purchase software and/or a service agreement from a vendor that provides access to information in the databases and on the Web. Using a search protocol, like Z39.50, the engine scans various databases, the Web, and library catalogs concurrently and provides an organized result for the searcher’s query. Metasearches are performed across both bibliographic and full-text databases. One major advantage of a federated search is that the query does not have to be repeated with various databases. When federated searching works well, it reduces the amount of time students spend locating data and encourages them to search for more information. “The goal of many federated search tools is to make the interface as simple and streamlined...

The New Era

...Mount Mercy University The New Era Justine Nurre HI 115 Edy Parsons March 13, 2015 In the 1920’s America economy grew greatly. The output from the nation’s manufacturing rose by greater than 60%, inflation was minor and the per capita income grew by a third. These happened because several things like technology. Technology was the most important development in which it helped develop the assembly line. This in turn led to automobiles becoming the most important industries in the nation. Automobiles made it possible for suburban housing and that led to a boom in the construction industry. Another technological gadget that contributed to the economic growth was the radio. The first radios could only send little broadcasts through pulses, but because of the discovery of the theory of modulation the radio was able to transmit music and speech. Many people started to build their own radios to save cost and it allowed owners to stay in contact with one another. Even though the economy was doing so well in 1929, more than two-thirds of Americans lived in conditions that were described as “minimum comfort level.” Half of those Americans were either at or below what was described as “subsistence and poverty.” During the 1920’s, Americans were able to experience successes and failures. Some workers started to see their standard of living begin to increase and others saw techniques that were known as “welfare capitalism.” Welfare capitalism workers still saw...

Virginia Slims: Capitalizing on the Essence of Women in a New Era of Equality

...2109 Virginia Slims: Capitalizing on the Essence of Women in a New Era of Equality Taking into consideration the versatility of a woman’s individuality, their need to gain their independence and feel empowered, and equating their struggles and triumphs during a new era of equality, the Phillip Morris Company launched one of the most successful cigarette campaigns in history geared towards the feminist movement that spanned over a 30 year period. This ingenious campaign not managed to interpret feminism into something to sell, but it paved the way for inverted feminine ideology while female consumer simultaneously became enslaved by the very tobacco company that sought to empower them. As the proportion of female smokers soared to 33%, tobacco companies began to see them as means to increase sales. One such company was the Phillip Morris Company. Riding high on a successful campaign strategy that catapulted Marlboro sales to the top, the company sought out the very advertising agency that had engineered that campaign, the Leo Burnett Agency, to conceptualize and market its women’s specific cigarette. The agency drew its inspiration based on the name Virginia (a previous acquisition of Phillip Morris known as Virginia Rounds), and the rising trend of smokers noted moving toward a longer cigarette it had in its arsenal, Silva Thins. Provided with the name, Virginia Slims, Burnett began to work his magic. The most unique part of the process had to be the means in which it......

The New Era of Cars

...Tyler Gates Robotics Essay The New Era of Cars An autonomous car, also known as a self-driving car or robotic car, is an autonomous vehicle capable of fulfilling the main transportation capabilities of a traditional car. As an autonomous vehicle, it is capable of sensing its environment and navigating without human input. Autonomous vehicles sense their surroundings with such techniques as radar, LIDAR, GPS, Odometry, and computer vision. Advanced control systems interpret sensory information to identify appropriate navigation paths, as well as obstacles and relevant signage. By definition, autonomous vehicles are capable of updating their maps based on sensory input, allowing the vehicles to keep track of their position even when conditions change or when they enter uncharted environments. Autonomous cars have control systems that are capable of analyzing sensory data to distinguish between different objects on the road, which is very useful in planning a path to the desired destination. Google’s self-driving car is any in a range of autonomous cars, developed by Google X as part of its project to develop technology for mainly electric cars. The software installed in Google's cars is called Google Chauffeur. Lettering on the side of each car identifies it as a "self-driving car". The project was formerly led by Sebastian Thrun, former director of the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory and co-inventor of Google Street View. Thrun's team at Stanford created the......
