The difference between accommodation and reconciliation

English

This article talks about the differences between reconciliation and accommodation in Quebec. The author starts out by talking about how people can be easily swayed to believe something when it comes from a form of authority such as a Politian or a known media source in the form of a journal or a show. He then goes on to talk about how the Bouchard-Taylor report of reasonable accommodations seems to have failed in finding out the reason for why we have this malaise and tension in the air.

The Shoreline Project Assignment.

Shipbreaking is a term I frankly never knew existed, I lacked knowledge on where all the old ships get dismantled and burried: Let alone the consequences of such acts. I had no perspective as of how many

different areas around the World were affected by climate change, and the video #7 describing how Shellfish are part of the endangered species, really helps put in perspective 'how much we have to lose'. It's 

great to see how many organizations are currently taking part in solving this major issue.

Project - Rebranding of a Sustainable Business - The Best Hotel in Europe

We are students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management Program at College Lafleche. Throughout our course "Business English 2" we have completed 3 professional workshops wherein we evaluated real businesses and then came up with real suggestions and solutions which we might offer them if they were our clients.

For this 4th workshop, our task was to evaluate the Best Hotel in Europe, which is a not-for-profit sanctuary for refugees which operates in Greece. This refuge is situated in an old hotel which had been abandoned, and we were excited to work on this project because They are doing great work for the international community, but with the right partners, they could do even more!

Our task was to research the company and produce the following documents:

Documents:
1. A rebranding package: logo, mission statement, slogan(s) and anything else that you may think useful.
2. A list of potential parent companies and a brief description of why they may be interested, and in which capacity they may be interested (buy/sponsor/partner). This part must be as realistic as possible and include real statistics and facts.
3. A SWOT analysis for 1 of those potential partners
4. A slideshow that presents the basic concept, key details, and major advantages which will incentivize the parent company to buy/sponsor/partner with your charitable client.
5. A second slideshow which illustrates the improvements, upgrades, technology, new concepts, new product offerings that the investor can make possible.

Here is our work so far:

Project - Rebranding of a Sustainable Business - The Lotus House

We are students in the Hotel and Restaurant Management Program at College Lafleche. Throughout our course "Business English 2" we have completed 3 professional workshops wherein we evlauated real businesses and then came up with real suggesttions and solutions which we might offer them if they were our clients.

For this 4th workshop, our task was to evaluate the Lotus House, which is a not-for-profit guesthouse which operates in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. This guesthouse uses its profits to support an orphanage, and in turn, the orphans have the opportunity to learn about the tourism/hospitality industry so that when they are 18 years old, they will have a better chance of finding a good job. Mongolia is set to become a major tourist destination, and we were excited to work on this project because The lotus House is a strong example of a sustainable business.
