Rooftop Garden - A Substantial Way to Supply Greens for Restaurants

If you run an urban restaurant, very likely, you have vegetable delivered to your location. Have you considered growing your own vegetables on the roof? This video news shows us how a restaurant in Manhattan can provide enough green supplies for its operations. If every restaurant is taking this green initiative, restaurants will have better controls on the quantitative and quality of vegetable suppliers; cities will also become greener. When I visit Manhattan next time, I will give this restaurant a trial to support its green effort.

  1. I think that this is such a great idea and that it will definitely catch on with more restaurants in the near future. It definitely takes a lot of time to grow your own food for your restaurant and it would be expensive at first to initiate, but I think that eventually it would end up being cheaper than having everything shipped in. This also gives the restaurant owner complete control over the quality and safety of the food they serve. The water system is very efficient because it eliminates plant diseases and pests that can live in the soil. It is very unconventional and would take a lot of monitoring but in the end I think that it would be worth it.

    If more restaurants started doing this it would also cut down on the amount of fossil fuel used to transport food all across the country. Food is shipped all over the country all the time so that people everywhere can have any type of produce all year long, even if it isn’t in season. This would eliminate some of that travel time and help cut down on pollution.

    This is coming at a time when lots of people are supporting local and fresh foods so I think that more restaurants will start to do it as well. I heard about office buildings putting gardens on their roof in order to cool the building down and use less air conditioning so this is another positive aspect of this concept.

  2. I feel that John Moony has a very clever idea with the whole growing your own vegetables concept. I think that it would save him a lot of money to grow his own vegetables and produce rather than going to a local grocery store. His unique idea will probably attract a lot of people in New York City and because it is so original, I feel that the people who go, will definitely be satisfied with Moony’s food. I believe that his salads will be very fresh and clean since he hand picks his own grown greens. It also seems very convenient for his garden to be on the rooftop, however investing in an elevator would probably be a good idea instead of walking those 6 flights of stairs. The only problem I see with his new concept is, being able to maintain his garden under harsh weather conditions. Also, if his new restaurant business attracts many people, he would probably have to hire more employees to assist him in preserving his garden and making sure everything is taken care of, which will increase his labor cost. Aside from that, I think that this new idea of being cost efficient and somewhat eco friendly is a very clever idea.

Yammer: A Social Networking Site Exclusively for the Workplace

Effective internal communications among employees are related to some desirable organizational outcomes, such as robust morale, a clear vision, low turnover, and high employee engagement. The question is what platform can serve the purpose. This ABC News video introduces “ Yammer ,” an exclusive internal communication tool for companies. A user must use a valid company e-mail address to sign up for an account. Once an account is validated, the user will be led to the company page that is pretty much like a Facebook page. The difference is that only the users whose e-mail addresses share the same domain can see the wall and communicate with each other. I have no question about whether Yammer could be a useful internal communication tool for companies, but I just wonder: how many social networking sites do people need for communication? Why people have to “create” so many platforms or channels for “effective communications”? To many people, Facebook is only for “friends,” whe

The 7 Ps marketing mix of home-sharing services: Insights from over one million Airbnb reviews

The 7 Ps marketing mix framework is a widely used managerial tool that helps businesses identify the principal components of a service product. The 7 P elements include Product, Promotion, Price, Place, Participant, Physical Evidence, and Process.   The 7 Ps framework can assist marketers in making decisions regarding segmentation, positioning, and differentiation. Even for the same type of products with different brands, marketers can still drive higher sales through the improvement of a product’s marketing mix.     The empirical study about 7 Ps of home-sharing services   Building upon the 7 Ps marketing mix framework, I led a research team in a big-data, supervised machine learning analysis of over 1.14 million English reviews of 37,092 Airbnb listings in San Francisco (SFO) and New York City (NYC).

Can leisure and work-from-home demand stimulate extended-stay hotel growth beyond COVID-19?

The lodging industry is   struggling   to fill the empty rooms in 2020. For months, U.S. hotels are running at an occupancy of 50% or lower.     Not every segment   suffers the same impact from the pandemic, however. Demand for   home-sharing  facilities had already bounced back over the summer. Airbnb reported a higher booking than last year. Marriott’s home-sharing arm is also doing well, seeing a sevenfold increase in booking over last summer.     Similar to what a residential rental or home-sharing facility   offers , guestrooms in extended-stay hotels also feature a full-size kitchen or a kitchenette. Extended-stay hotels are designed for travelers who want to stay at a “home” when away from home. A guestroom at the Residence Inn Miami Sunny Isles Beach   Extended-stay hotels vs. home-sharing facilities     Because COVID-19 is primarily transmitted through direct or indirect human contacts, people are highly encouraged to avoid unnecessary human interactions, leading to more   con
