Location of Balbirnie House in Fife

Balbirnie House is an early 19th-century country house in Glenrothes, in central Fife, Scotland. The present house was completed in 1817 as a rebuild of an 18th-century building, itself a replacement for a 17th-century dwelling. The home of the Balfour family from 1640, the house was sold in 1969 and opened as a hotel in 1990. The grounds now comprise a large public park and a golf course. The house is protected as a category A listed building,[1] while the grounds are included in the Inventory of Gardens and Designed Landscapes in Scotland.[2]
History[edit]
Around 1640, the Balbirnie estate was acquired by the family of Balfour. A 17th-century house on the estate was remodelled or replaced in the later 18th century for John Balfour. The architecture of these works, completed around 1782, has been attributed to both James Nisbet and to John Baxter Jr.[1] In 1815 further changes were begun by General Robert Balfour, to designs by the architect Richard Crichton.[3] Some £16,000 was spent on extending the south-west front and constructing the portico at the south-east. At the same time, landscape gardener Thomas White provided plans for the improvement of the 18th-century parkland. Meanwhile, General Balfour’s two brothers were developing new houses at Whittingehame in East Lothian and Newton Don in the Borders, funded by the same large inheritance.[2] Further alterations, comprising offices, were carried out in 1860, possibly designed by David Bryce.[1] The plant collection was expanded from the mid-19th century with seeds sent from India by George Balfour, a friend of plant collector William Hooker.[2]
In 1969 the house and estate was acquired by the Glenrothes Development Corporation, who were then building the new town of Glenrothes. A golf course was laid out in the grounds, while the house wa

Service quality

Service quality(SQ), in its contemporary conceptualisation, is a comparison of perceived expectations (E) of a service with perceived performance (P), giving rise to the equation SQ=P-E.[1] This conceptualistion of service quality has its origins in the expectancy-disconfirmation paradigm. [2]
A business with high service quality will meet or exceed customer expectations whilst remaining economically competitive.[3] Evidence from empirical studies suggests that improved service quality increases profitability and long term economic competitiveness. Improvements to service quality may achieved by improving operational processes; identifying problems quickly and systematically; establishing valid and reliable service performance measures and measuring customer satisfaction and other performance outcomes.[4]

Definition[edit]
From the viewpoint of business administration, service quality is an achievement in customer service.[5] It reflects at each service encounter. Customers form service expectations from past experiences, word of mouth and marketing communications. [6] In general, customers compare perceived service with expected service, and which if the former falls short of the latter the customers are disappointed.
For example, in the case of Taj Hotels Resorts and Palaces, wherein TAJ remaining the old world, luxury brand in the five-star category, the umbrella branding was diluting the image of the TAJ brand because although the different hotels such as Vivanta by Taj- the four star category, Gateway in the three star category and Ginger the two star economy brand, were positioned and categorised differently, customers still expected high quality of Taj.
The measurement of subjective aspects of customer service depends on the conformity of the expected benefit with the perceived result. This in turns depends upon the customer’s expectation in terms of service, they might receive and the service provider’s ability and talent to present this expected service. Successful companies add benefits to their offering that not only satisfy the customers b

“Lost” is a song by American hip hop recording artist Gorilla Zoe, released October 28, 2008 as the lead single from his second studio album Don’t Feed Da Animals (2009). The song leaked in May 2007 entitled “Losin’ My Mind”, featuring a verse from fellow American rapper Lil Wayne. It is notable that, specifically with the Lil Wayne version, both songs use the auto-tune effect. “Lost” received positive reviews from critics praising Drumma Boy’s electronic production and Zoe’s sincere Auto-Tune delivery of introspective lyrics.

Critical reception[edit]
“Lost” received positive reviews from music critics praising the production and usage of Auto-Tune to reveal an honest performance by Zoe. Steve ‘Flash’ Juon of RapReviews praised the synth production and use of Auto-Tune to give Zoe a heartfelt performance, saying that “You might not think someone with Zoe’s deep raspy flow could pull off crooning, but Drumma Boy plays to his strengths and gives him a joint he can sing low and slow over.”[1] Nathan Slavik of DJBooth was surprised by the honesty and self-awareness delivered by Zoe about his newfound lifestyle, saying that “‘Lost’ is a display of the lyricist lurking behind Zoe’s gravel-voiced swagger, dropping carefully constructed lines like “I’m losing my mind, I’m losing control…of the wheel swerving on and off the road.” That’s right, Zoe dropped a dope metaphor. Suck on that haters.”[2] Brendan Frederick of XXL called it “a brink-of-insanity cry for help that’s filled with booming 808s and sing-along digital harmonies.”[3] AllMusic’s David Jeffries felt that the introspective lyricism were being overshadowed by sophomoric humor, calling it “a heartfelt song about loneliness that would work splendidly if it wasn’t for the diaper talk.”[4]
Chart performance[edit]
“Lost” debuted at number 93 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week of January 24, 2009.[5] Six weeks later, it m
