In this study we demonstrate how publicly available data can be used to work out the indirect importance of various hotel attributes for their visitors. We apply Shapley value decomposition of the recommendation rate to compute the percentage contributions of various attributes to the overall loyalty, which helps us explain why some of Cyprus hotels have higher satisfaction ratings than the others. It appeared that satisfaction with gastronomy is the key driver of the overall satisfaction with Cyprus hotels. We conduct importance-performance analysis for one of the hotels to demonstrate a strategic management application of our empirical analysis. Directions for other potential studies using user-generated content are proposed.

Smoking is a problem, bringing signifi cant social and economic costs to Russiansociety. However, ratifi cation of the World health organization Framework conventionon tobacco control makes it possible to improve Russian legislation accordingto the international standards. So, I describe some measures that should be taken bythe Russian authorities in the nearest future, and I examine their effi ciency. By studyingthe international evidence I analyze the impact of the smoke-free areas, advertisementand sponsorship bans, tax increases, etc. on the prevalence of smoking, cigaretteconsumption and some other indicators. I also investigate the obstacles confrontingthe Russian authorities when they introduce new policy measures and the public attitudetowards these measures. I conclude that there is a number of easy-to-implementanti-smoking activities that need no fi nancial resources but only a political will.
