Driving with confusions, and finally parking illegally in front of a Chinese massage. I handle to take a picture of the hotel from East Houston St.
<Look closer into the windows>

Actually I already checked every single window, seem like the ghosts are not really enjoy the view.

The Medical Arts Building, now the Emily Morgan Hotel, at 705 E. Houston St. was the child of architect Ralph H. Cameron. Who was also a Ford dealer. At the time, Cameron already had his marks at Houston and Dallas, the 13_story skyscraper would complete his powerful triangle in Texas.
In November 23rd, 1923, the ground was broken and the medical marvel brought a blend of French and Spanish Gothic styles to life. Engineered by the local firm of W.E.Simpson, the building was made of reinforced concrete. In an early instance of vertical integration, the crush rock with the concrete was formulated was supplied by George’s Olmos Rock Co. The interesting shape of the building brought intention from far away. A hexagonal tower, rather than octagonal, turned a sharp profile to the intersection.
The most fascinating aspect draws my attention to this “Flatiron of San Antonio” is the haunted history of the building. A little talk with a guy in front door, the best chance of experiencing paranormal activities are from 3rd, 7th, 9th, 11th, and 12th floors. Not surprise since during its time as a medical facility, Emily…...

Rate-Optimization-Enhancing-Your-Hotels-Pricing-Strategy

...White Paper Rate Optimization: Enhancing Your Hotel’s Pricing Strategy For many hotels, developing effective pricing strategies remains a complex issue for revenue managers. Their goal, ultimately, is to maximize companywide revenue and profits while building strong hotel partner relationships within their marketplace. The emergence of rate optimization has made strides to demystify pricing practices and help revenue managers understand the demand characteristics of their products, understand the price sensitivity of demand and design a rate spectrum that is tuned to all these. This allows hoteliers to take full advantage of their business opportunities, ensuring that they are capturing the maximum revenue at all times through an optimized rate spectrum. Beyond the scope of regular revenue management practices such as selecting the correct overbooking, rate restrictions and best available rate, lies the challenge of selecting the correct rates to choose from in the first place. Rate Optimization is the practice of selecting the rates offered in a rate spectrum based on the historical price sensitivity of demand. The goal of rate optimization is to understand the demand characteristics of products and the price sensitivity of demand and define a rate spectrum that will capture the maximum revenue over time. Dr. Ravi Mehrotra President, IDeaS Revenue Optimization Price Sensitivity, or Elasticity of Demand The Price Sensitivity of Demand is a measure of the change in...

We will examine the benefits first, followed by the challenges we might foresee With respect to benefits let’s first look at how the merger will affect the employees. With this merger there will be a strong and unambiguous signal to the employees that business will continues as usual.

How to Protect Your Network from Cybersecurity

...How to Protect Your Network From Cyber Attacks There are three measures network administrators can take to avoid the types of network attacks that plagued U.S. and South Korean websites including www.whitehouse.gov, NASDAQ, NYSE, Yahoo!'s financial page and the Washington Post. The three areas to focus on are network based mitigation, host based mitigation and proactive measures. Network based mitigation * Install IDS/IPS with the ability to track floods (such as SYN, ICMP, etc.) * Install a firewall that has the ability to drop packets rather than have them reach the internal server. The nature of a web server is such that you will allow HTTP to the server from the Internet. You will need to monitor your server to know where to block traffic. * Have contact numbers for your ISP's emergency management team (or response team, or the team that is able to respond to such an event). You will need to contact them in order to prevent the attack from reaching your network's perimeter in the first place. Host based mitigation * Ensure that HTTP open sessions time out at a reasonable time. When under attack, you will want to reduce this number. * Ensure that TCP also time out at a reasonable time. * Install a host-based firewall to prevent HTTP threads from spawning for attack packets Proactive measures For those with the know-how, it would be possible to "fight back" with programs that can neutralize the threat. This method is used mostly by......

Hilton Hotels

...PICCOLI CHEKITAN DEV op yo Hilton Hotels: Brand Differentiation through Customer Relationship Management In early 2008, Hilton Hotels Corporation was poised for tremendous global growth—with an aggressive goal of opening 1,000 hotels in North America in five years and 1,000 hotels in the rest of the world in ten years. The company had just been taken private by the Blackstone Group1 for a reported $26 billion, a 32% premium over the $32.05 share price the day prior to the announcement. The takeover announcement by Blackstone clearly framed the road ahead: “Blackstone intends to invest in the Hilton properties and brands globally to enhance and grow the business for the benefit of owners, franchisees, and customers... This transaction is about building the premier global hospitality business.” tC But growth would not be easy in the highly competitive global lodging business. Challenges in this market historically included access to capital, high levels of employee turnover, and difficulty achieving standardization typical of service delivery operations. Improving service delivery and consistency across the family of Hilton brands had been the major focus of the Customers Really Matter (CRM) strategy that the firm launched in 2002. With five years invested in CRM, the Blackstone acquisition provided the opportunity to evaluate the results to date and to devise an action plan going forward. Hilton Hotels’ Background Do No Hilton was......

A Rose for Emily

...A Rose for Emily by William Faulkner I When Miss Emily Grierson died, our whole town went to her funeral: the men through a sort of respectful affection for a fallen monument, the women mostly out of curiosity to see the inside of her house, which no o ne save an old manservant---a combined gardener and cookhad seen in at least ten years. It was a big, squarish frame house that had once been white, decorated with cupolas and spires and scrolled balconies in the heavily lightsome style of the seventies, set on what had once been our most select street. But garages and cotton gins had encroached and obliterated even the august names of that neighbourhood; only Miss Emily's house was left, lifting its stubborn and coquettish decay above the cotton wago ns and the gasoline pumps-an eyesore among eyesores. And now Miss Emily had gone to join the representatives of those august names where they lay in the cedarbemused cemetery among the ranked and anonymous graves of Union and Confederate soldiers who fell at the battle of Jefferson. Alive, Miss Emily had been a tradition, a duty, and a care; a sort of hereditary obligation upon the town, dating from that day in 1894 when Colonel Sartoris, the mayor-he who fathered the edict that no Negro woman should appear on the streets without an apron-remitted her taxes, the dispensation dating from the death of her father on into perpetuity. Not that Miss' Emily would have accepted charity. Colonel Sartoris invented an......

A Rose for Emily

...A Rose for Emily Summary How It All Goes Down You might want to look at our discussion of the novel's setting before you enter here, or at least know it's there to help if you get tangled up in this story's crazy chronology. Also keep in mind that the narrator of this story represents several generations of men and women from the town. The story begins at the huge funeral for Miss Emily Grierson. Nobody has been to her house in ten years, except for her servant. Her house is old, but was once the best house around. The town had a special relationship with Miss Emily ever since it decided to stop billing her for taxes in 1894. But, the "newer generation" wasn't happy with this arrangement, and so they paid a visit to Miss Emily and tried to get her to pay the debt. She refused to acknowledge that the old arrangement might not work any more, and flatly refused to pay. Thirty years before, the tax collecting townspeople had a strange encounter with Miss Emily about a bad smell at her place. This was about two years after her father died, and a short time after her lover disappeared from her life. Anyhow, the stink got stronger and complaints were made, but the authorities didn't want to confront Emily about the problem. So, they sprinkled lime around the house and the smell was eventually gone. Everybody felt sorry for Emily when her father died. He left her with the house, but no money. When he died, Emily refused to admit it for three whole days. The town didn't......

Working from Home – It’s in the Details (an Article Review)

...Case Study #2 WORKING FROM HOME – IT’S IN THE DETAILS (An article review) 1. Identify and discuss the main problems or concerns mentioned in this case study regarding telecommuting. In your opinion, do most of these problems originate with the company or the employee? • I noticed lots of problems in this article regarding telecommuting. One of these problems is Communication breakdown. Employees under this kind of job begin to feel isolated although it is part of the job, because they are lack of interaction between their managers and colleagues. Even if there were many ways to communicate with them like internet, phones, instant messaging or social medias still much better to communicate with physical appearance. It has a big bearing in the behavior of people inside the organization. It is also hard for the managers to keep in track their people. As everybody say that people in the company is the most important asset, it is important that the managers will assure that they have build a good collaborative environments with them. Another concern is fear no longer part of the organizational ladder, some employees feel that they might be not part of the trends of the company, because they didn’t report or go in the office regularly, compared with the employees in a traditional office setting. Some believe that they need to be in the company to be more productive and learn. We, as part of our organization where we employed, we feel happy everytime that our company...
