This paper argues that in the current neo-liberal era, the discourse of tourism as an ‘‘industry’’ has overshadowed other conceptualisations of the tourism phenomenon. An argument is developed that this discourse serves the needs and agendas of leaders in the tourism business sector. However, the author desires to revive an earlier understanding of tourism that predates the neoliberal era. Tourism is in fact a powerful social force that can achieve many important ends when its capacities are unfettered from the market fundamentalism of neoliberalism and instead are harnessed to meet human development imperatives and the wider public good. Examining the human rights aspects of tourism, investigating phenomena such as ‘‘social tourism’’, exploring a few ‘‘non-western’’ perspectives of tourism and outlining some of the tantalising promise that tourism holds, this paper attempts to revive and reinforce a wider vision of tourism’s role in societies and the global community. It is argued that it is critical for tourism academics, planners and leaders to support such a vision if tourism is to avoid facing increasing opposition and criticism in a likely future of insecurity and scarcity. r 2005 Elsevier Ltd.

The Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO) with headquarters in Barbados and marketing operations in New York, London and Toronto is the Caribbean’s tourism development agency and comprises 32 member governments and a myriad of private sector organisations and companies. The CTO’s mission is to provide, to and through its members, the services and information needed for the development of sustainable tourism for the economic and social benefit of the Caribbean people. The organisation provides specialised support and technical assistance to member countries in the areas of marketing, human resources development, research, information management and sustainable development. The Caribbean Regional Sustainable Tourism Development Programme (CRSTDP) The Caribbean Sustainable Tourism Policy Framework is an output of the Caribbean Regional Sustainable Tourism Development Programme (CRSTDP); an intervention of the 8th European Development Fund (EDF) implemented in the period 2005 to 2008. The overall purpose of CRSTDP has been to foster the sustainability and competitiveness of the Caribbean tourism sector through the establishment of a sustainable development policy framework, supplementing and strengthening of regional institutional capacities, development of skills and human resources, support to small operators through business development services, and strengthening the links among CARIFORUM/ CARICOM, the Caribbean Tourism Organization (CTO), the Caribbean Hotel Association (CHA), national tourism/hotel associations and academic institutions.

In recent years, tourism has been increasingly recognised for its economic potential to contribute to the reduction of poverty in developing countries. Its geographical expansion and labour intensive nature support a spread of employment and can be particularly relevant in remote and rural areas, where live three quarters of the two billion people under extreme poverty conditions. Statistics show that tourism in LDCs is still limited: 2.6% of the world market share in terms of international tourist arrivals (ITAs) and of international tourism receipts (ITRs). However, the growth in ITAs has been faster in LDCs than in the developing countries as a whole: 42.5% in the former and 30.8% in the latter between 2001 and 2005 (15.8% for the world). Also in terms of ITRs: 50.3% growth in LDCs and 40.6% in the developing world between 2001 and 2004 (33.2% for the world). There are several reasons that make tourism an especially suitable economic development sector for LDCs1: 1. Tourism is consumed at the point of production; the tourist has to go to the destination and spend his/her money there, opening an opportunity for local businesses of all sorts, and allowing local communities to benefit through the informal economy, by selling goods and services directly to visitors; 2. Most LDCs have a comparative advantage in tourism over developed countries. They have assets of enormous value to the tourism industry - culture, art, music, natural landscapes, wildlife and climate, including World Heritage Sites. Visits by tourists to such sites can generate employment and income for communities as well as helping in the conservation of cultural and natural assets; 3. Tourism is a more diverse industry than many others. It has the potential to support other economic activities, both through providing flexible, part time jobs that can complement other livelihood options, and through creating income throughout a complex supply chain of goods and services;

Reference Document: 2005 Food Code Source: Rebecca L. Vigue, CFSAN Retail Food Protection Team Provision: 2-102.11, 2-201.11, 2-201.12 Document Name: Employee Health-Medical Examinations and Testing Document Description: Regarding the health status and testing of food employees, an inquiry was fielded by this office which referenced Annex 3 of the 2001 FDA Food Code wherein it states that “periodic testing of food employees for the presence of diseases transmissible through food is not cost effective or reliable.” The inquiry stated that they are revising their medical exam protocols, specifically the one for Food Handlers, and want to know if there is a later version of the Code available which states something different. Also, the inquiry asks if the latest FDA Food Code requires or recommends that all food handlers have physical examinations. The inquiry stated that it would be helpful to have guidance on what is required in the medical exam, and attached a matrix with a request for FDA review and feedback. Date: February 20, 2008 Questions: 1. Is there a later version of the Food Code available than 2001? 2. Does the latest FDA Food Code require or recommend that all food handlers have physical examinations? 3. Is there available guidance on what is required in the medical exam for food handlers? Related Issue: Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) For a comprehensive understanding of the ADA and its implications, consult the references listed in Annex 2 that relate to these sections of the Code or contact the U. S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. For detailed information about the interaction between the FDA Food Code and the ADA, please refer to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s How to Comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act: A Guide for Restaurants and Other Food Service Employers, found at http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/restaurant_guide.html or http://www.eeoc.gov/facts/restaurant_guide_summary.html Discussion and Rationale: In accordance with the Food Code, food employees and conditional employees are required to self report typical foodborne illness symptoms, and any listed diagnosis or exposure with or ...

Oklahoma youngster forced to turn his Michigan shirt inside out at school A 5-year-old boy learned the hard way that Columbus, Ohio, isn't the only place that hates Michigan -apparently Oklahoma does too. Young Cooper Barton wore his favorite Michigan shirt to Wilson Elementary in Oklahoma City and was told it violated the Oklahoma City Public Schools dress code and was asked to turn the shirt inside out. According to the dress code, students are only allowed to wear Oklahoma, Oklahoma State or apparel from another Oklahoma state school. Everything else is a violation (especially Texas). "They should really worry about academics. It wasn't offensive. He's 5," Cooper's mother Shannon Barton told News9.com. The dress code also prohibits professional apparel. This isn't the first time a kindergartener has been asked to ignore their collegiate allegiance. In February, Emma Burton of Olathe, Kan., refused to color a University of Kansas Jayhawk because she and her parents were devout Kansas State fans. According to the television station, the Oklahoma City Public Schools dress code was created in 2005 as part of a way to rid schools of gangs and gang apparel. Obviously, it's a little ridiculous to think 5-year-old Cooper was trying to rep his gang colors. His parents are just big Michigan fans and so is he. Consequently, the school district will revisit the dress code policy. Perhaps it will be overturned so Cooper can rock his shirt for the big game against Ohio.
