I hope you doing well and happy these days! Thanks for your great video presentation, and I enjoyed
watching and listening that your relaxing introduction way makes me feel like a conversation! You are
very good at observing life and can start to introduce topics from a phenomenon that can be seen in life.
To be honest, when I saw the health warning on the cigarette box at first, I felt that it was useless because
I guess the real user would not care about the health warning, but maybe it could serve as a reminder.
Anyway, thank you for your explanation!
Through your introduction, I have a clearer understanding of the harm of second-hand smoke, but
perhaps we cannot avoid the impact of second-hand smoke in life, such as people around smoking
indoors. However, most activities of the hospitality industry, especially the hotel industry, are carried out
in indoor confined space, which has become an issue. It is necessary to ban smoking in public places. We
always emphasize how to act without affecting others. Of course, the impact on the environment should
also be considered. The chain reaction caused by self-health is worth thinking, such as reducing the
incidence of disease and the possibility of potential medical expenses, which is a good starting point. Try
to think that smoking needs to pay for the purchase of cigarettes, the possible medical expenses, and also
affect themselves, others' health and the surrounding environment. It seems that is an unnecessary
behavior to continue.
You mentioned a 100% smoking ban, which sounds like a once and for all approach. However, sometimes
smoking is also a personal cathartic behavior. If it is completely prohibited, maybe other behaviors
dealing with cathartic will increase, which is not very controllable and seems not very desirable. As you
said, nicotine and alcohol can make people feel comfortable and they are also an important source of
income for the hospitality industry, so how to balance economic impact and health is worth considering.
Great job Jami! Please stay safe and healthy!
I hope quarantine has been good for you (or as good as it can get), and that you are staying
safe and healthy! Great job on this assignment! I think your topic was a really good one and
something that I would have never thought of myself. I thought it was really cool how you
tied your topic into something that was personal and I'm sure that helped make this
assignment a little more important to you! Smoking in restaurants, hotels, and other public
places definitely is a turn off for me and I, personally, would not eat or stay somewhere that
allowed smoking in the building. I thought the 100% smoking ban was interesting. Smoking is
so dangerous but I think that banning it 100% would be a hard law to pass. Before your
presentation, I had never really thought about the negative effects that having a smoking ban
could potentially hurt the hospitality industry. Your point about the bars was really
interesting and something that I would not have put together. I definitely think this issue is
something that could greatly affect our industry and should be research more. I really
enjoyed listening to your presentation. Awesome job!
