Francis collects music related merchandise, in particular she is a big fan of Kiss (American glamrock band) and Status Quo (English boogie band) merchandise. Francis appoints Rick as her agent and instructs him to purchase three specific Kiss related items from Allan, another collector of Kiss merchandise. Francis gives Rick a limit of $25,000 to spend, which Rick promptly deposits in his own personal bank account to “keep it safe” until it is needed.

Francis also instructs Rick to keep the purchase of the three items confidential. Rick is very pleased about his appointment as Francis’s agent and tells three of his closest friends on the proviso the friends do not share any information with anyone. However, two of these friends work in the music industry and immediately tell their employers.

Rick approaches Allan and introduces himself as Francis’s agent. Following negotiations it is agreed Allan will sell the three Kiss items to Francis for $32,000. When Francis is informed of the contract, Francis flatly refuses to pay and says:

“Rick never had the authority to make any contracts involving this amount of money. I simply will not pay this amount of money for those three items.”

Allan states the contract stands, wants to proceed with the sale and demands payment in 7 days or he will start legal proceedings for breach of contract.

When Rick was inspecting the items, he noticed Allan also had 3 original Status Quo albums which Francis has always wanted for her collection. Rick also facilitates an agreement where Allan will sell the albums to Francis for $45,000.

Nowadays, most research investigating social networks is done based on big data collected
through sensors and other technical equipment connected directly to individuals (phone
applications, Bluetooth, localization, etc.).
This data includes parameters such as tone, pitch and volume of voice, length of information
exchange and conversation, gestures, body movement, physical proximity, and much more.
This data, when analyzed, reveals a lot about human behavior.
This data is valuable to organizations because it can help them identify causes of low
productivity, and thus, instore measures to raise productivity. At the same time, it is very
personal and sensitive data. There are clearly advantages and disadvantages to its use. What is
your opinion?

i would like to have severals opinion for a debate please

Buddy and Peggy-Sue are friends. They agree that it would be fun and add spice to their otherwise tedious Saturday evenings if they jointly purchased lotto tickets for the Saturday night draw each week. Initially they purchased the ticket together, with either Buddy giving Peggy-Sue $5 each Friday so that she can purchase the $10 ticket or Peggy-Sue giving Buddy $5 so that he can purchase it. Over the last four weeks Buddy has purchased the ticket on his own and Peggy Sue has given him the $5 when they meet on Saturday evening or on the following Monday. Last Friday Buddy purchased the ticket for $10. Peggy-Sue did not meet up with Buddy on the Friday or the Saturday as she had to work but Buddy was not bothered as he knew Peggy-Sue would give him $5 when they next met. However, on Saturday evening Buddy is delighted to learn that the ticket he purchased on Friday has won $1,300,000. When Peggy-Sue meets Buddy on Sunday, and tries to give him the $5, Buddy refuses to accept the $5 saying that the ticket, and the prize money, is all his.

Required: Advise Peggy-Sue, with reasons supported by appropriate authority, whether she could successfully sue Buddy for a half share of the $1,300,000.

It is said that Bed & Breakfast (B&Bs) can contribute to a more ‘authentic’ travel experience for tourists rather than hotel chains. It also provides mutual benefits for both the visitor and the operator. While licensing can be a concern, the HKTB’s hotel rating system being used is also considered not applicable to rate the ‘quality’ of B&Bs for several reasons. If the HKTB’s hotel rating system is applied to rate the B&Bs in Hong Kong, explain how it will disadvantage or advantage the grading of a B&B based on the FIVE key indicators being used in this stage.

A combination of quantitative indicators:

1. Facilities (F&B, IT, Business and Health Related)

2. Location

3. Staff to Room ratio

4. Average Achieved Room Rate

5. Business Mix

Amy Richardson had been a well-paid sales manager of a major hotel chain for 15 years. Due to a hotel owner's illness, Amy was offered the opportunity to purchase a hotel near a seaside vacation area she had often visited. After obtaining a lawyer and a financial accountant to assist her, Amy did an analysis of the most recent financial statements of the hotel. Since the hotel had consistently shown a profit during the past few years, Amy thought that the price of the hotel was reasonable, so she decided to purchase the hotel. She resigned her position, obtained a loan, and purchased the hotel.

During the first year as a hotel manager, Amy received an offer from a tour operator who proposed to guarantee a considerable number of room reservations, including during the off-season. However, she turned down the offer because the tour operator asked for a 20% price reduction compared to the regular room rate. A few weeks later, she decided to shut down the restaurant, located in the main building of the hotel, in order to save expenses. With regard to general expenses, she was particularly concerned with the high room cleaning and service costs. On the sales side, although the reservations for the cheaper standard rooms were a bit sluggish, the more expensive large-size superior rooms had a very good occupancy rate of over 90%.

The following year, there was a severe economic downturn and also a very bad weather season that reduced the number of guests and also caused a resulting mold situation in the hotel building that required expensive repair work. Amy ran short of cash, became emotionally distraught, and eventually had to sell the hotel at a significant loss.

Required:

Analyze Amy’s purchase decision and the subsequent events using key management accounting tools and concepts. Make sure that you clearly indicate how each tool/concept could be used to explain potential management errors that Amy had made and could have helped her to improve decision-making and the financial results of the business.
