Will the current energy crisis accelerate the pro-environmental transformation of tourism and increase the scale of development of green, sustainable tourism?
Rising fossil fuel prices, energy prices are increasing interest in the development of renewable energy sources, increasing pressure to increase energy independence and diversification of energy sources, the application of new energy technologies in economic activities, eco-innovations that generate savings in the consumption of fossil fuels, switching to more energy-efficient means of transport, to electromobiles. In this way, the current energy crisis may perpetuate trends already underway, which are an offshoot of the long-term developing climate crisis. The pro-environmental trends of scaling up the implementation of sustainable development goals, the implementation of eco-innovations and green energy technologies into economic processes, which have been developing as important elements of the green economy, counteracting the progressive process of global warming and the worsening climate crisis are now being exacerbated by the developing energy crisis. The growing pro-environmental and pro-climate awareness of citizens may also force a change in the business models of tourism companies, which will increasingly enrich their tourism service offers with sustainability, pro-environmental, pro-climate, environmental protection issues, including, among others, through the use of emission-free energy sources, electromobility vehicles, etc. The effect of such pro-environmental processes may also be to add issues of sustainability, pro-environmental action, climate protection and planetary biosphere protection to the missions of tourism companies. The effect of such paradigm shifts and business models may be to change the standards of the means of transport used in tourism, increase the use of zero-emission transport and thus accelerate the pro-environmental transformation of tourism. Perhaps the consolidation of such processes in the years to come will increase the scale of development of green, sustainable tourism.
In view of the above, I address the following research question to the esteemed community of researchers and scientists:
Will rising fossil fuel, energy prices cause a change in the standards of the means of transport used in tourism, increase the scale of use of zero-emission transport and thus accelerate the pro-environmental transformation of tourism and increase the scale of development of green, sustainable tourism?
Will the current energy crisis perpetuate already developing trends of sustainable tourism development and increase the scale of pro-climate awareness among citizens?
Will the current energy crisis accelerate the pro-environmental transformation of tourism and increase the scale of green, sustainable tourism development?
What is your opinion on this topic?
Please respond,
I invite you all to discuss,
Thank you very much,
Warm regards,
Dariusz Prokopowicz
Relevant answer
Answer
The higher the price of polluting activities, the lesser chances of people to engage in these activities; hence, more chances to increase the scale of green and sustainable tourism development. The "Polluter Pays" Principle (PPP) should be applied.

Relevant answer
One of my friends was accused of plagiarism; do you know why?
After about three months, his research paper was rejected because of plagiarism. When he checked the journal report, he found that his paper was accused of plagiarism with a 61% percentage. The reason is that his manuscript was previously uploaded as a preprint. It took him another two months to solve the problem and remove the manuscript from the database of the preprint.
So, in order to solve this type of issue, it may take several months of following up to remove the manuscript from the database of the preprint. Anyhow, If there were accusations of plagiarism, it is not well for any researcher's reputation, in any meaning.

Public procurement denotes the attainment of goods, works, or services required by governments through contracts. Public procurement is usually plagued with covert practices and exclusive forms of corruption in Bangladesh. The cost of development finance is much higher in public procurement than that of others in Bangladesh. There have been no unified rules or laws regarding government purchases since 2006. The Government of Bangladesh enacted its ever first act of public procurement, the Public Procurement Act, 2006 (PPA, 2006), and the Public Procurement Rules, 2008 (PPR, 2008). The procurement entity must disseminate procurement information through electronic medium i.e. Electronic Government Procurement (hereinafter e-GP). Despite passing over an era since its enactment, the role of the PPA, 2006 remains seriously under-researched area, specifically there is no research on the issue of the grievance redress mechanisms. The study has been done using a qualitative case study methodology, backed by both primary and secondary documentary analysis. Based on empirical data, this paper explained the role of digitalization in the process of government procurement and depicted changes that have been brought by the implementation of e-GP in government purchases. However, it concluded that the grievance redress mechanism in the process of procurement is only existing in the policy papers which need mandatory implementation for a transparent and accountable governance system. Despite the significant changes and up-gradation in digital government procurement, it is hardly found that the GRM process is digitalized. And the mass tenderers are yet to be acquainted with the improvised system apart from the consistent efforts of the government.

Academic Word List (AWL) and General Service List-(GSL).
Relevant answer
Answer
These have different histories - the GSL goes back to the early 20th century when linguists like Palmer created a word-list that would be seen as a minimum needed by administrators in India (and then, learners in Japan).
Avril Coxhead created the AWL to highlight that, in academic writing in general, there is a specific subset of vocabulary that is significantly more frequently found than in everyday language.
One key issue is that that the GSL was compiled originally to reflect what was deemed as important vocabulary in daily use. As language changes over time, the list gets updated. The AWL is corpus based and only exists in its original form - though it has to be found highly useful to lexicographers (see the Longman Learner's Dictionary of English) and for those who teach and write Academic English.

Surprisingly, the pre-process cycle has the greatest influence on how customers perceive waiting times and service quality. A customer who has to wait 10 minutes in line before ordering will feel more dissatisfied than a customer who waits 10 minutes for their order to be prepared, even if the total service time for both customers was the same. Hence, this should be the first place you look to reduce wait times. ( )

The main features of smart homes/buildings include real-time monitoring, remote control, safety from intruders, gas/fire alarm, and so on. Because sensitive and private information is managed within smart homes/buildings, security and privacy solutions must be put in place in order to protect users/businesses' data against violation attempts as well as to guarantee the provision of reliable services. To this end, rules—in the form of policies—associated with the smart home/building resources must be defined and correctly enforced by means of a robust framework for handling the huge amount of IoT data managed.

This work has presented an intelligent home automation system based on IoT technologies, cloud computing, and a machine learning algorithm. The home automation system allows remote and local control of the home via an Android-based mobile application. The system controls electrical home appliances, monitors environmental conditions through temperature, humidity, and light sensors, and ensures home security through a motion sensor and an IoT camera. The system makes intelligent decisions to automatically turn ON or OFF lights and allow the user to view a picture of the person captured by the camera and decide whether to save it. The system is scalable, and the application allows additional appliances with an extra configured point, simply named outlet in our work. Also, the mobile application uses a real-time cloud database to record data gathered. It also displays the trend of the readings graphically on the screen of the mobile application. These data can be analyzed and used for future prediction. The next phase of the work will be to use a dataset of several real-life images captured by the camera from the system or sourced from relevant datasets in the field of home automation and train a machine learning algorithm to classify them so that the system could differentiate between an intruder and the home occupants. Also, we plan to enhance the system such that the user will only receive captured images of an intruder, and other captured images will be saved in real-time into the cloud-based database of the system. This will remove the limitation on the encumbrance of a load of images on the mobile application. In addition, machine learning will also be used to enhance the PIR sensor’s performance to differentiate between an animal, the occupant, and an intruder. This will reduce the notification from the PIR sensor to the user. The machine learning algorithm will also be applied to classify detected images to work with several occupants and a larger data set of intruders.

For a research project, I want to replicate the analysis of Li et. al. (2015) for a different city
I can read that Google changed their Terms of Service (https://cloud.google.com/maps-platform/terms) since the publication of the article. Some of the elements related to this study are:
3.2.3 Restrictions Against Misusing the Services.
(a)  No Scraping. Customer will not export, extract, or otherwise scrape Google Maps Content for use outside the Services. For example, Customer will not: (i) pre-fetch, index, store, reshare, or rehost Google Maps Content outside the services; (ii) bulk download Google Maps tiles, Street View images, geocodes, directions, distance matrix results, roads information, places information, elevation values, and time zone details; (iii) copy and save business names, addresses, or user reviews; or (iv) use Google Maps Content with text-to-speech services.
c) No Creating Content From Google Maps Content. Customer will not create content based on Google Maps Content. For example, Customer will not: (i) trace or digitize roadways, building outlines, utility posts, or electrical lines from the Maps JavaScript API Satellite base map type; (ii) create 3D building models from 45° Imagery from Maps JavaScript API; (iii) build terrain models based on elevation values from the Elevation API; (iv) use latitude/longitude values from the Places API as an input for point-in-polygon analysis; (v) construct an index of tree locations within a city from Street View imagery; or (vi) convert text-based driving times into synthesized speech results.
My question is thus: Is it still allowed to perform this type of research? Or is there another way that this type of research can be performed without the use of Google Street View?
Relevant answer
Answer
I believe so, in some articles there is a concern to discuss vegetation not only by the horizontal notion, but also by the vertical vision, and in this aspect, Google Street View presents itself as a very useful tool. Always remembering that it must be in accordance with the objectives of the work.

Hello,
I want to model a system in AnyLogic comprised of 10 machines. Jobs (my agents) are created and can do any sequence of machines, i.e., random routes. For instance, jobs can do:
machine1 -> machine7 -> machine2 -> exit
machine9 -> machine2 -> exit
...
So, once they exit a machine, jobs can go to any other machine.
I have modeled my machines as services, so I have 10 services. My doubt is how can I implement these random routes/sequences of services? I.e., once a job finishes a service, how can it randomly select the next one? I am aware that one option is to use multiple SelectOutput at the end of each service, but is there another way to model this?
Thanks.

Are you asking for websites/agents who do this for you?
As Rohit Bansal mentions, every individual journal has its own individual requirements and is slightly different to other journals. I tend to make those modifications by myself to save money! But I am sure there will be websites/agents that can do it for a fee.
The other major advantage (of doing by self) is that it will be done by end of that day, for example, and I know exactly where I am up to and I do not have to wait and guess if somebody else is doing it...~

I need real help from you. You must publish an item in a top Journal (WoS).
I used a professional English publishing service until now, but it was not enough for me.
I’m looking for another editing service with more complex services (including formatting on journal requirements). But I don’t know which one to choose. Plus, they have very high prices relative to my low income. But even at these prices, I don’t know if to risk it. I’ve seen some recommendations, but I don’t know what to choose. Some still recommend such services on the internet, but I do not know how much confidence to have. My impression is that most of them are self-recommending. (they work on such services)
Please recommend to me only if you have collaborated with such a service, and following this collaboration, you have managed to publish to a WoS Journal.

Public services have transformed by digitalization for easy access to the mass people, particularly in the rural area.
Relevant answer
Answer
Today the digital transformation provides new avenues for the economic empowerment of women and can contribute to greater gender equality. The Internet, digital platforms, mobile phones and digital financial services offer “leapfrog” opportunities for all and can help bridge the divide by giving women the possibility to earn additional income, increase their employment opportunities, and access knowledge and general information. We need to seize this opportunity to foster greater gender equality in the labour market, boost economic growth and build a more inclusive, digital world. The road ahead is uphill: today worldwide some 327 million fewer women than men have a smartphone and can access the mobile Internet. Women are under-represented in ICT jobs, top management and academic careers and, as shown in this report, men are four times more likely than women to be ICT specialists. At 15 years of age, on average, only 0.5% of girls wish to become ICT professionals, compared to 5% of boys. Women-owned start-ups receive 23% less funding and are 30% less likely to have a positive exit compared to male-owned businesses. Co-ordinated policy action can help narrow the digital gender gap. This requires raising awareness and tackling gender stereotypes; enabling enhanced, safer and more affordable access to digital tools; and stronger cooperation across stakeholders to remove barriers to girls and women’s full participation in the digital world. Digital technologies provide new opportunities to make progress, but technological fixes cannot address the underlying structural problems that drive the digital gender divide. Concrete policy actions are needed to foster women’s and girls’ full participation and inclusion in the digital economy, while at the same time addressing stereotypes and social norms that lead to discrimination against women. The digital gender divide needs to be resolved. There is no reason for women to trail behind in the digital transformation. The cost of inaction is high and in the face of sluggish growth, ageing societies and increasing educational attainment of young women, the economic case for digital gender equality is clear. Bridging the gender divide, also in the digital world, can provide new sources of global economic growth, support the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and help achieve the G20 goal of strong, sustainable and inclusive growth. (OECD, 2018)

The public administration is the real institution to provide service to the country's population, but planners face difficulty in analyzing the internal and external environment to identify opportunities, threats, strengths and weaknesses, to build a strategic plan that can meet the needs of the people.
So, how can we analyze the internal and external environment of the public administration institution in the country from your point of view?
Relevant answer
Answer
make with SWOT analysis.
SWOT stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities, and Threats, and so a SWOT analysis is a technique for assessing these four aspects of your business.
SWOT Analysis is a tool that can help you to analyze what your company does best right now, and to devise a successful strategy for the future. SWOT can also uncover areas of the business that are holding you back, or that your competitors could exploit if you don't protect yourself.
A SWOT analysis examines both internal and external factors – that is, what's going on inside and outside your organization. So some of these factors will be within your control and some will not. In either case, the wisest action you can take in response will become clearer once you've discovered, recorded and analyzed as many factors as you can.
SWOT seems simple, but, if used carefully and collaboratively, it can be very revealing. For example, you may be well aware of some of your organization's strengths, but until you record them alongside weaknesses and threats you might not realize how unreliable those strengths actually are. Equally, you likely have reasonable concerns about some of your business weaknesses but, by going through the analysis systematically, you could find an opportunity, previously overlooked, that could more than compensate.
In this article, video and infographic, we explore how to carry out a SWOT analysis, and how to put your findings into action. We also include a worked example and a template to help you get started on a SWOT analysis in your own workplace.

A lot has been written about the benefits, pit-falls and ethics of North-South research collaborations, but there does not seem to have been much discussion of the practical difficulties of collaborating across countries and institutions with very different expectations, needs and capacities. Examples of some of the problems I have personally experienced include:
i. inability to transfer research money from a UK research institution to my Brazilian research institution because my institution did not have a "research account". We ended up paying research bursaries from our own salaries for 2 years!
ii. requirements (from Northern funding bodies) to provide detailed receipts for field work expenses even though most of the services we required were being provided by locals who did not use receipts (and often were illiterate)
iii. requirements (from northern research institutes and funding bodies) to have detailed protocols/rules in place to prevent misuse of funds, ensure gender equity, etc.; these simply did not exist in our institution in a form that was acceptable to our "collaborators"
iv. requirements to pay for services/travel/research items in advance; many of my colleagues were simply unable to do this
These issues have occurred over multiple collaborations and, through informal discussions, appear to be general problems associated with these sorts of collaborations. I'd like to know what other challenges/barriers people have experienced and how they have dealt with them. Some of my colleagues (at institutions in the South and the North) have told me they no longer want to take part in such collaborations due to the stress/difficulties involved.
