Many  hotel companies have a family of brands, each offering a different level of amenities and services. This is an attempt to reach more consumers and market segments, rather than limiting to only one particular market segment.

For the discussion this week, choose one particular family of hotels (there are many parent companies) and identify a specific brand within that hotel company. Examples of brands include Hampton Inn or Waldorf Astoria (Hilton family), The Ritz Carlton or Westin (Marriott Bonvoy), Quality Inn or EconoLodge (Choice Hotels), etc.

Based on what you are able to learn about that particular brand from their website and locations, identify their particular target market. This could include business/leisure travelers, upstairs versus downstairs, long term versus short term, etc. Explain why you came to that conclusion.

What particular amenities or brands do you look for when you are traveling? Does it change if it is for business, military, or leisure?

Finally, if you were to begin a career in the hotel industry, would you choose to begin in a full service hotel or a limited service hotel and why would that particular choice support your career goals better?

The following discussion comes from your Week 4 Content.  Outside research to address these issues is required. Use the online library for additional sources of information and research.  In addition, I recommend utilizing the Legal Studies Program Guide.  

We have discussed the elements needed for a crime, actus rea and mens rea. But proving intent can be challenging. Getting into the mind of a person is difficult; how can you prove what the person was thinking or the intent at the time of the crime?

Answer the following:

1) There are many cases in which an individual has been convicted on circumstantial evidence for the crime of murder. Find a recent and local case in your home state in which a person has been found guilty of murder or a varied degree of homicide.  Summarize the case in your main post. Indicate the reasons for the conviction. Was it based on physical or circumstantial evidence? What did the prosecutor use to prove the mental intent of the offender at the time of the crime? 

2) Did the prosecution and/or the defense use legal technology in some way to aid in the development and/or presentation of their respective sides of the case?  Was that use (if any) actually helpful in that case (or potentially, other similar cases)?  If it was not helpful, explain why you think so. 

3) How did conducting research and going through each step of legal analysis help you to reach this conclusion?  Analyze how you applied critical thinking and legal analytical skills to assist you in this regard.  What new research and/or analytical tool or method did you try for the first time this week?  What do you think you do well and what would you like to strengthen so that you continue to improve?
