The Impact Of Casino Revenue-Sharing On Tourism Efforts In Niagara Falls Usa: 2006-2016, Anthony L. Astran

Public Administration Master’s Projects

This qualitative case study examines the intersection of a Native-owned casino, revenue-sharing with its host community, and the impact of tourism marketing efforts vis-à-vis funds provided to the community’s tourism agency. Specifically, this report studies downtown Niagara Falls USA from the time period between 2006 and 2016, and seeks to determine whether and how funds from Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino boosted tourism marketing efforts by Niagara Tourism & Convention Corporation (NTCC). Background research and a series of elite interviews with city officials and tourism agency leaders uncovered overall positivity in terms of growth in Niagara Falls USA’s tourism efforts ...

The Olde Post Inn Tasting Menu 2017, The Olde Post Inn

Menus of the 21st Century

The Olde Post inn was built in the 1800s. It opened as a post office in 1884, grocery & residence. It had a number of owners and was for some time derelict before it was renovated into a restaurant with accommodation in early 1990s. It has been run as a restaurant since and was taken over by Gearoid & Tara Lynch in November 2002. Since then it has gone under further refurbishment and been extended to include two Hampton Conservatories.

No More “Magic Aprons”: Longitudinal Assessment And Continuous Improvement Of Customer Service At The University Of North Dakota Libraries, Karlene T. Clark, Stephanie R. Walker Dec 2018

No More “Magic Aprons”: Longitudinal Assessment And Continuous Improvement Of Customer Service At The University Of North Dakota Libraries, Karlene T. Clark, Stephanie R. Walker

Librarian Publications

The University of North Dakota (UND) Libraries have developed a multi-award winning Customer Service Program (CSP) involving longitudinal assessment and continuous improvement. The CSP consists of iterative training modules; constant reinforcement of Customer Service Principles with multiple communication strategies and tools, and incentives that boost morale and foster not only compliance, but initiative-taking and innovation. The CSP became a widely adopted part of campus-wide assessment, beyond the libraries. Subsequent presentations at conferences led to multiple requests and implementation at other libraries.


Do New Competitors, New Customers, New Suppliers, ... Sustain, Destroy Or Create Competitive Advantage?, Michael D. Ryall, Glenn Macdonald Dec 2018

Do New Competitors, New Customers, New Suppliers, ... Sustain, Destroy Or Create Competitive Advantage?, Michael D. Ryall, Glenn Macdonald

Michael D Ryall

We examine the effect of entry on the value appropriated by an incumbent. By ``entrant’’ we mean at any level of the value chain — from raw material suppliers to buyers. Our specific concern is whether competition guarantees the incumbent some positive minimum level of profit. We demonstrate that the net effect of entry is subtle — even when the entrant is a perfect imitator. On the one hand, entry typically results in greater value creation. This tends to soften competition and, thereby, lower the incumbent’s minimum level of appropriation. At the same time, however, entry also creates new competitive alternatives ...

Hosting The Third Annual Young Women In Agriculture Career And Leadership Seminar, Emma E. Morris, Madyline J. Braught Jun 2018

Hosting The Third Annual Young Women In Agriculture Career And Leadership Seminar, Emma E. Morris, Madyline J. Braught

Agricultural Education and Communication

Agriculture has traditionally been a male-dominated industry; however, recent years have shown a significant growth in female presence. Women are beginning to take leadership roles both on the farm and within advocacy, lobbying, and business entities in the industry. According to the latest agricultural census data from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), in 2012, women farmers controlled seven percent of the nation’s farmland (Census, 2014). Additionally, women held leadership roles in 14 percent of the nation’s two million farms (Census, 2014). This data is several years old, and likely the numbers have grown since the last ...

A Model Of Competition Between Perpetual Software And Software As A Service, Zhiling Guo, Dan Ma Mar 2018

A Model Of Competition Between Perpetual Software And Software As A Service, Zhiling Guo, Dan Ma

Research Collection School Of Information Systems

Software as a service (SaaS) has grown to be a significant segment of many software product markets. SaaS vendors, which charge customers based on use and continuously improve the quality of their products, have put competitive pressure on traditional perpetual software vendors, which charge a licensing fee and periodically upgrade the quality of their software. We develop an analytical model to study the competitive pricing strategies of an incumbent perpetual software vendor in the presence of a SaaS competitor. We find that, depending on both the SaaS quality improvement rate and the network effect, the perpetual software vendor adopts one ...

Status, Power, And Apologies: How Status And Power Shape The Willingness To Apologize And The Perception Of Victims, Louis Lipani Feb 2018

Status, Power, And Apologies: How Status And Power Shape The Willingness To Apologize And The Perception Of Victims, Louis Lipani

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Apologies are interpersonal tools that individuals employ to repair damaged relationships. Management scholars have largely ignored the role that power and status play in the apology process. Across three studies I experimentally manipulate power and status and examine the apology process via a workplace scenario. In Study 1 I propose that power and status have different implications with respect to one’s willingness to apologize. I orthogonally manipulate power and status and examine their effect on people’s willingness to apologize. I find that status, but not power, impacts one’s willingness to apologize. In Study 2 I posit and ...


Do You Feel Like A Fraud? How Experiencing The Impostor Phenomenon Influences Consumption Choices, Emily Goldsmith Feb 2018

Do You Feel Like A Fraud? How Experiencing The Impostor Phenomenon Influences Consumption Choices, Emily Goldsmith

All Dissertations, Theses, and Capstone Projects

Most of us, at one point, have felt like a fraud. Usually we can overcome the negative feelings associated with feeling like a fraud by acknowledging why we deserve our accomplishments. However, there are times when, despite all external evidence, we still feel like an impostor. A person experiences the impostor phenomenon when they are unable to internalize their achievements and they have the constant fear of being exposed as a fraud. The current research examines each of the four behaviors associated with experiencing the impostor phenomenon and examines how they influence our consumption behavior. The impostor cycle is a ...

Living Without Otas—Goodbye Columbus: Putting The Jenie Back In The Bottle, Chris K. Anderson, Saram Han

Articles and Chapters

A recent Cornell Hospitality Quarterly article highlighted a unique natural experiment where an entire city had all its hotel delisted from all online travel agents for more than 4 years. The article provides great background to the delisting and highlights the impacts on hotel revenue and accommodation taxes for the county. The article estimates that even though the hotels relisted at all online travel agents (OTAs), there was a substantial gain to both hotels and accommodation tax collectors during the OTA delisting period. The impact estimates are based solely on the loss of demand realized in neighboring Phenix City, AL ...


Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn Feb 2018

Cq Reviewers’ Reactions To My Editorial Policies, Michael Lynn

Articles and Chapters

[Excerpt] Peer review is an important part of the scientific process. It helps to separate good research from bad so that scarce journal pages and readers’ attention go the former rather than the latter. As editor of Cornell Hospitality Quarterly (CQ), I am particularly dependent on reviewers’ help because CQ is a cross-disciplinary journal whose submissions cover literatures and methodologies that vastly exceed my ken.

Economic Fundamentals, Capital Expenditures Asset Dispositions, Brent Ambrose, Eva Steiner Jan 2018

Economic Fundamentals, Capital Expenditures Asset Dispositions, Brent Ambrose, Eva Steiner

Eva Steiner

Research on the disposition effect in real assets to date ignores the active management component of these investments. Active management notably includes decisions about follow-up investment in the form of capital expenditures, as well as dispositions. Using a real option framework, we develop testable hypotheses and provide empirical evidence for the relationships between economic fundamentals, capital expenditures, property values, and the subsequent likelihood of sale. Our results shed new light on the evidence for the disposition effect.


How Does Human Capital Matter? Evidence From Venture Capital, Lifeng Gu, Ruidi Huang, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian Jan 2018

How Does Human Capital Matter? Evidence From Venture Capital, Lifeng Gu, Ruidi Huang, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian

Yifei Mao

We investigate the effects of human capital mobility on venture capital (VC) investment and outcomes. To establish causality, we use a difference-in-differences approach that relies on plausibly exogenous variations generated by states' staggered recognition of the inevitable disclosure doctrine (IDD). We _find that a reduction in human capital mobility reduces VCs' investment propensity and successful exit. Further analysis shows that the effects are more pronounced in industries with more high-skilled workers, in industries with higher patenting intensity, and in earlier-stage VC investment. To mitigate the adverse effect of the IDD, VCs stage finance startups more and are more likely to ...


The Role Of Human Capital: Evidence From Patent Generation, Tong Liu, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian Jan 2018

The Role Of Human Capital: Evidence From Patent Generation, Tong Liu, Yifei Mao, Xuan Tian

Yifei Mao

Firms exhibit persistence in innovation output. This paper focuses on the role played by individual inventors. Compared to firm organizational capital, human capital embedded in inventors explains a majority of the variation in innovation performance but much less in innovation style. Inventors contribute more when they are better networked, in firms with higher inventor mobility, and in industries in which innovation is more difficult. Additional tests suggest that our main findings are unlikely driven by inventors’ endogenous moving. This paper highlights the importance of human capital in enhancing firm innovation and sheds new light on the theory of the firm.


Public Market Institutions In Venture Capital: Value Creation For Entrepreneurial Firms, Shiyang Huang, Yifei Mao, Cong (Roman) Wang, Dexin Zhou Jan 2018

Public Market Institutions In Venture Capital: Value Creation For Entrepreneurial Firms, Shiyang Huang, Yifei Mao, Cong (Roman) Wang, Dexin Zhou

Yifei Mao

Institutions that traditionally focus on the public equity market are making an increasing number of venture capital (VC) investments in the private market. Examining these investments, we find that an institution-backed entrepreneurial firm is more likely to have a successful exit, either through an IPO or through an acquisition. Meanwhile, these institution-backed entrepreneurial firms tend to be more mature, require higher amount of financing and attract more reputable VC investors. Our baseline results continue to hold in a propensity score matching analysis. Furthermore, there is a strong positive association between prior public equity market performance of an institution and successful ...


Categorizing Cruise Lines By Passenger Perceived Experience, Yiwei Li, Robert J. Kwortnik Jr. Jan 2018

Categorizing Cruise Lines By Passenger Perceived Experience, Yiwei Li, Robert J. Kwortnik Jr.

Robert J. Kwortnik

In the travel and hospitality industries, categorization of products, brands, and experiences permit efficient comparison and evaluation that aids decision making—from consumer choice to organizational strategy. However, categories often involve self-categorization (e.g., marketer defined) that may not reflect the reality of dynamic markets and industries. In this study of the cruise industry, we derive a new categorization approach using consumer perceptions of their cruise experiences to challenge a long-standing industry typology. Results using a variety of statistical tests of J.D. Power data from more than 3,000 cruisers yield a new and more informative category structure and ...


Option-Implied Systematic Disaster Concern, Fang Liu Ph.D Jan 2018

Option-Implied Systematic Disaster Concern, Fang Liu Ph.D

Fang Liu

The covariation of option-implied disaster concern of the market index and individual stocks allows me to estimate the conditional and systematic disaster concern of stocks with respect to the market. The estimated conditional and systematic disaster concern variables can be interpreted in terms of the risk-neutral conditional disaster probabilities, and they strongly predict future realizations of stock-level disasters and stock returns in different market states. This suggests that the comovement of option prices between stocks and the market index carries forward-looking information on their joint tail distributions.


A Forward-Looking Factor Model For Volatility: Estimation And Implications For Predicting Disasters, Ohad Kadan, Fang Liu Ph.D, Xiaoxiao Tang Jan 2018

A Forward-Looking Factor Model For Volatility: Estimation And Implications For Predicting Disasters, Ohad Kadan, Fang Liu Ph.D, Xiaoxiao Tang

Fang Liu

We show that any factor structure for stock returns can be naturally translated into a factor structure for return volatility. We use this structure to propose a methodology for estimating forward-looking variances and covariances of both factors and individual assets from option prices at a high frequency. We implement the model empirically and show that our forward-looking volatility estimates provide useful predictions of rare disasters for both factors and individual stocks.
