Dirk König Linking agriculture to tourism in Sierra Leone - a preliminary research

Dirk König Linking agriculture to tourism in Sierra Leone - a preliminary research

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,2, University of Applied Sciences Eberswalde, 200 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Tourism has been acknowledged by practitioners and governments to be a tool for economic development, not exclusively but mainly, of less developed countries with few other competitive sectors and, therefore, for boosting their domestic economy as well as reducing the endemic poverty in Africa.This paradigm is difficult to apply when the tourism industry is not viable in a country and the great majority of tourism establishments have insufficient numbers of clients to make profit. In this respect, some findings indicate that, tourism and local small-scale agriculture (World Bank, 2006b) have been widely neglected by the Government of Sierra Leone, all efforts having been directed onto the development of the mining sector. In fact, while production and marketing constraints can be solved as stated in the wider agriculture literature, due to the nature of Sierra Leone as a "fragile state", findings suggest that the lack of commitment and attitude of the Government to more responsible tourism forms or approaches will hamper any attempt to foster strategic alliances between the poor agriculture sector and tourism industry or other lucrative market-segments. Although the recent tourism development in Sierra Leone addresses the important issue of preserving the few available tourist attractions, a...

Sixsmith Martin Putin's Oil. The Yukos Affair and the Struggle for Russia

Sixsmith Martin Putin's Oil. The Yukos Affair and the Struggle for Russia

This title investigates Vladimir Putin's war for control of Russia's vast oil reserves, in particular Mikhail Khodorkovsky's oil firm, Yukos. Putin's Oil investigates the complex world of Kremlin politics, including conspiracies and conspiracy theories, allegations that Roman Abramovitch plotted with Putin to destroy Khodorkovsky, suspicions of betrayal and double agents in the Kremlin and in Yukos, murder charges against Khodorkovsky's partners, and the KGB defector who claims they were carried out by Kremlin agents. After the mysterious death in a helicopter crash of the Englishman who had taken over Yukos, the company's war against the Kremlin is now being waged by a troika of mild mannered Britons, pursued by Interpol arrest warrants and Moscow's fury. Khodorkovsky remains in a penal camp in far Eastern Siberia. Martin Sixsmith, former BBC Moscow Correspondent, has gained unprecedented access to many of the players in the drama. The resulting book is both a thriller and an analysis of the defining moments of Putin's presidency and their ongoing impact in Russian and world politics.

The Rise and Decline of the British Motor Industry (New Studies in Economic and Social History, 24)

This book is a concise and lucid review of the strengths and weaknesses of the British motor industry during the one hundred years since its foundation. Placing the industry firmly in a European context, the author first assesses its achievements before 1960, and then tests the various explanations that have been offered to explain its decline in the past thirty years. He examines the role of government, of the trade unions, of management and of the multinationals, all of which have been seen as major players in the industry's demise.

Hanna Snellman, Maria Lähteenmäki Passages Westward

Hanna Snellman, Maria Lähteenmäki Passages Westward

The West has always been a resource for the Finns. Scholars, artists and other professionals have sought contacts from Europe throughout the centuries. The Finnish experience in Western Europe and the New World is a story of migrant laborers, expatriates and specialists working abroad. But you don't have to be born in Finland to be a Finn. The experiences of second-generation Finnish immigrants and their descendants open up new possibilities for understanding the relationship between Finland and the West.The Finnish passage westward has not always crossed national borders. Karelian evacuees headed west, as did young people from the Finnish countryside when opportunities to make a living in agriculture and forestry diminished in the post-war era. The legacy of these migrants is still visible in the suburbs of Finnish cities today. This book is a joint effort of the Department of Ethnology and the Department of History at the University of Helsinki. It was written by Ph. D. students supervised by Academy Research Fellows Maria Lähteenmäki and Hanna Snellman, in collaboration with colleagues abroad interested in current research in ethnology and history.

Charles II and the Politics of Access

Charles II and the Politics of Access

Book DescriptionIn an era dominated by monarchs like Louis XIV and Philip IV who used distance to generate awe, Charles II's reputation for accessibility stands out. Most scholars enamored with anecdotes about the restored monarch's many mistresses, his rakish companions, and his spaniels have assumed that Charles's personality inevitably led him to open access and that such accessibility remained a constant throughout his reign. Charles II and the Politics of Access argues to the contrary that politicalconcerns, not personality, brought this king to at first favor open access, for he believed that accessibility would aid him in uniting his strife-torn nation and thereby help to secure his throne. But when Charles II's political agenda changed so too did his policies of access: when he abandoned his goal of uniting his nation he also abandoned his commitment to accessibility. Even so he continued to use access to his person as a potent political tool, strictly regulating it in order to galvanize his supporters and dishearten his opponents. This book further contends that policies of access had ramifications far beyond the realm of high politics. By examining how changes in the manner of interaction between subject and sovereign affected such diverse areas as architecture, religious identity, business practices, economic theory, and even the self-conception of the English nation, this book offers new insights not only about the reign of Charles II, but also about the instituti...

Washington Irving The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

Washington Irving The Legend of Sleepy Hollow

The quiet Dutch community of Sleepy Hollow lay in the Adirondack mountains on the western shore of the mighty Hudson River in America's colonial period. The solitude of the woods was breathtaking, and not even a schoolmaster was immune from the eerie miasma which everyone knew permeated the dense forest. Written in 1820, Washington Irving's The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow has become a classic of American literature, and has been retold in many different ways. Here is the original, from Irving's own hand.

Неустановленный автор The Integration of Driverless Vehicles in Commercial Carsharing Schemes in Germany

Master's Thesis from the year 2012 in the subject Economy - Transport Economics, grade: 80%, , course: Politics, Global Issues, Sustainability, Traffic Management, language: English, abstract: The prefeasibility study at hand proposes to integrate driverless vehicles in commercial carsharing schemes in Germany. It finds indications that carsharing has the potential to become a significant mode of transport because it responds to social and business change. On the other hand, the study shows that it is the human component in traffic causing the majority of accidents, which is why driverless vehicles are expected to reduce traffic accidents and improve road safety. By making use of the business management tools SWOT analysis and an ad hoc STEPLED analysis, the study conducts a micro-environmental and macro-environmental analysis of the German carmakers BMW and Daimler in regard to the proposed concept. The main finding is that the technology is generally expected to be marketable within the next two decades, if not much earlier. It can be expected that customers will accept driverless vehicle technologies and that many new target groups could be reached by the realisation of the concept. Carmakers should benefit from this potential and might be able to offset possible losses in their core business. The analysis does also show, however, that the current legislation poses several obstacles and might, if unchanged, delay the introduction of driverless vehicle technologies. It ...

Неустановленный автор Could Ecotourism Replace the Palm Oil Industry in Malaysia. A Comparative Analysis of Sustainability

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2014 in the subject Tourism, grade: -, , language: English, abstract: In this thesis it is examined if ecotourism is a viable source of income in Malaysia. Furthermore, the issue arises if this kind of tourism has the potential to be an alternative to the oil palm production in the country. The question is, if ecotourism can protect the environment and also fulfill the principles of sustainability by connecting ecological and social with economic goals. To examine this case, the current situation of the palm oil production has to be investigated. Afterwards the state of ecotourism in Malaysia will be determined. The results will lead to a comparison of palm oil production versus ecotourism and the benefits of each sector to Malaysia's ecological, social and economic situation.

Project Report from the year 2008 in the subject Tourism, grade: B, University of Birmingham, 70 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The product FUNCHALoCITY is a touring-information-voucher guide that includes maps, routes, vouchers and discounts, insider information and a hotel voucher for the cruise passenger segment. Derived from the internal analysis one of the islands' strengths is its range of attractions gastronomy and accommodation. Furthermore, the climate and the geography favour the tourism activity, which result in a high rate of local people who own, or work in local businesses. This is a favourable basis to build the product on. However, the island has weaknesses that include high attraction prices that turn into an opportunity for the product. Another weakness is Madeira's global image as being an old people's destination that again can be used by the product to help the destination attract more families and younger visitors. Last but not least, the cooperation of local tourism related businesses lack and yet another possibility for FUNCHALoCITY is to improve collaboration in Funchal, whose infrastructure is well-developed anyway. Threats might only be of an environmental nature also deriving from the huge centralisation of population in Funchal.

Robert Corfe Land of the Olympians

Robert Corfe Land of the Olympians

This is a penetrating study of many aspects of life, thought, and everyday existence in Scandinavia, as experienced through the author’s 9-year residence in the enlightened far north in the 1960s. Robert Corfe is primarily known as a thought-provoking writer of books published in the 21st century, but this work comprises a selection of his articles published in the Finnish press, popular magazines, and learned journals in the 1960s. The collected articles are put into context for a contemporary readership by a lively introductory chapter entitled, Seeing The Future Through The Past, which describes how Scandinavia was 50 years in advance of Britain in terms of political thinking and social development. And now Britain has caught up and shares in the benefits and also the dis-benefits of a modernised technological society. Of considerable interest are the articles on British society and its problems, as viewed through the eyes of a British resident acclimatised to the cultural environment of Finnish life. The articles reflect clearly the development of the author’s political ideas on the need for a classless society in more effectively contributing to communal prosperity and internal harmony. The Scandinavians’ enviable policy of neutrality and disengagement from the conflicts of the great power blocs in achieving national security is highlighted as contributing to the happiness of their people. In view of an impending new Cold War between Russia and the West, the arguments de...

Colin Duncan Taylor Lauragais

Colin Duncan Taylor Lauragais

A journey through the past and present of a little-known area of south-west France. Explores the people, places and events that shaped a land once too important to ignore. A whole library has been written about the Lauragais in French, but virtually nothing in English. The Lauragais lies in south-west France at the heart of Occitania. Today it is largely ignored by the millions who visit its neighbours each year – Toulouse and Carcassonne – but in times gone by it rarely escaped the attentions of the great and the good, or the ambitious and the avaricious. This is a book with big characters – Simon de Montfort, the Black Prince, Thomas Jefferson and the Duke of Wellington among others – but most of all it tells the story of the people who have shaped this land, the living and the dead, families that have lived in the same house or village for hundreds of years. This is the story of their lives, their religion, their forgotten language and their environment. On the autoroute, a journey through the Lauragais will take you three-quarters of an hour, but all you will see are tantalising glimpses of gorgeous countryside and distant signs of human habitation. In this book, the author takes you on a more leisurely trip through time in a land that is endearingly modest about its illustrious past.

Len Coates Even More Journeys of a Lifetime

Len Coates Even More Journeys of a Lifetime

When I wrote my first book “Journeys of a Lifetime” in 2004, it reflected how dreams of mine—of visiting unknown places in the UK, countries across the North Sea in Europe, and seemingly far-off continents of America, Africa, Asia, and Australia—became a reality.That was mainly due to the advent of air travel, package holidays, and the massive growth of international travel in the second half of the twentieth century.Nine years on from that book, in my second book, our traveling had continued, and in that time, having seen the arrival of four grandchildren, naturally they have joined in some of the journeys. At that time, our fourth grandchild just made the book with her name and date and place of birth.Naturally, there was a need for another book so that she, as well as her brother and cousins, will all be able to read as they get older about their grandparents’ travels, and in particular, some of which included them.Although places visited in the three years since the last book include some return trips to old favorites, this book reflects only the new places visited. In particular, India, the Middle East, the Far East, Eastern Europe, and nearer home the beautiful Northeast England, it reflects the visits of the grandchildren, featured more this time.As we now have two grandchildren living in the Costa del Sol, as well as the Aussie part of the family, Spain, and Australia are now regular destinations.

charles brooking A tumbleweed tour through Latin America

This book charts one of Charles' several journeys. Absorbed in what he finds, he slots in notes on contemporary Latin American life, its war-torn history and little-known facts of historic figures, uprooted and updated as he travels. The natural scenery, ways of life, cultures and beliefs are witnessed before they changed and democracy and advanced technology become the norm in the Twenty First Century. Magnetised to the road, he has the gift of easily befriending people along his unplanned journey. At times he covers large distances on foot without so much as a compass and frequently rests his head in a variety of extraordinary places. He is the first outsider to stay a night with members of the Arhuaco tribe in Columbia. His hunger for rural landscapes and the people encountered on his path, all humour and colour the pages, filling them from the beginning in Venezuela and clockwise around South America and up through Central America at a time when civil wars are still rampant.
