From my experience, many individuals when saving a document save their documents into any random folder that comes up. Unfortunately this is cause for misplaced documents when trying to locate them at a later date. Thankfully, there are many helpful ways to locate recently saved documents. One step would be to click on the Office button which is located at the top left of your Microsoft Word document, and once the box drops down to the right-side panel will be the top nine recently saved documents. A quick reference would be to click Save and that will take you straight to your default Save designated folder. There are some various ways which have been utilized to lessen the routinely misplaced saved documents which will ultimately make it effortless to locate your recent and/or old files.
First, you should create a title for your document, something that you will easily remember in the future to be able to locate it. Now if the document is important, it is best to save it in an accessible file such as your “My Documents” folder or your desktop. One recommendation would be to create a
New Folder for example “School” that way you can create a less cluttered work space which will
Inevitably help you end up locating files quicker. It is understandable to be in a hurry to save, but, in order to create less havoc later simply create a title in which you will ultimately remember later, place in a folder that pertains to the document file and save in a easily accessible…...

...Knowing Your Audience Roberto Robles BCOM/275 October 1, 2012 Mrs. Bullon Knowing Your Audience What is the most important rule you can think of when communicating with others? The first thing we should all take into account when communicating in any form is, who is going to be the recipient. Who are we communicating with? Knowing our audience in crucial so that we can convey our message correctly and minimize any confusion or misunderstanding. We can adjust our feelings, position and our attitude according to the specific situation and to whom the message is going out to. We can also tailor the way we deliver our message appropriately by understanding our audience and by having a firm understanding of all the variables in relation to the message we will send out. In this case, I will be communicating with the workers and family members of the copper mine workers that were trapped when a mine collapsed in Chile a few years back. This event surely raised similar feelings between co-workers of the trapped miners and their families as well, however when communicating to both parties the same communication would not be appropriate. Whatever similar feelings they shared, both parties also had separate feelings and concerns based on the fact that the personal relationships to the trapped miners were different. Both parties had different distinct roles in relation to the trapped miners so I will address each accordingly. From a management prospective, I think it is......

... Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release BCOM/275 Kein Pettus Dr. Gail Zwart Communication is the basis of life, some belief communication created the world and everything in it. Words are powerful and if not used wisely, can be very damaging. However if used with care and in an uplifting manner; words can turn a challenging or seemingly bleak situation around. The story of the workers trapped in the copper mine in Chile was an example of a seemingly bleak situation, as the miners fought to stay alive while being rescued. An interesting yet sympathetic dynamic about this story is the feeling of being trapped did not only affect those physically trapped in the mine. These people are fathers, sons, brothers, friends and co-workers who one would be safe to assume that the people connected to the workers also felt trapped as they could do nothing but hope for the best and stay positive. Delivering such devastating news to the families and coworkers is not an easy task. One could be safe to imagine that it is one of the hardest messages that need to be relayed. In addition to the given considerations such as tone and content; guarding the hearts of the audience involved is the most important consideration to have when baring this news to bring. Deciding what should be made known to the audience is important as well, information that can bring their spirits down should only be conveyed if absolutely necessary. Word choice is crucial to the...

...miners Joe Brotz  Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release BCOM/275 10/1/12 Heather Rideout Knowing Your Audience Paper and Communication Release Knowing your audience is extremely important for any company to have the ability to communicate materials or information to a group, organization, or the public. The ability to know your audience becomes even more important when a company has to deal with a disaster, outcome, and the aftermath of it. A good example of this is the disaster for the Chilean copper miners in South America. In a Chilean copper mine a disastrous collapse of one of the shafts left 33 miners trapped 310 meters below the surface. This disaster made knowing and understanding their audience extremely important to the mine owners. The audience’s for the company to report to at this time were made up of news correspondence, the victim’s families, and the media. The way this company dealt with this disaster and their different audiences would in the end define how their audience and the world would see them. Their turnaround to report and keep the audience informed went a long way in telling how the Chilean mining company will be viewed for a long time into the future.  Not only would the company representative have to keep the prestige of the mining company in one piece, they would have to issue precise and straightforward information that would not always be in the best interest of the company. When a disaster to the extent......

Where Did You Get Your Morals Form

...Where Did You Get Your Morals From? Morals, this is something that is supposed to define the actions, perceptions, and persuasion of the human existence. Google defines morality as principles concerning the distinction between good or bad and right or wrong. I do believe that some types of morality come at a standard in human nature, but to only select people. For the majority it’s a combination of what was instilled through parenting and what we acquired through our own observations in growing and learning. Growing up, there were several family members that helped raised me. Like all parental figures in our life there are some lessons and morals that were taken from those family members. The majority of morals that I have acquired, derived from my grandmother, grandfather, uncle and mom. There are also morals that I have acquired from living and observing actions and results, in which I am still learning. We had steps, rules, and procedures that needed to be followed during throughout the household. They started from the way that we spoke down to what could be touched during different times of the day. The parental figures set a lot of rules and standards in our household. Foods needed to match the time of the day. Such as; cereals and eggs in the morning, sandwiches for lunch, and whatever was cooked in the evening was for dinner. For the kids permission had to be requested to go outside and the destination or area of play had to be stated so that they...

When communicating to anyone, the roles of the people, and the audience should be considered to guarantee the successfully code and decode of the message. An inadequate misunderstanding of your audience can lead to a poor delivery of information. During the unfortunate event at the Chilean Copper Mine Collapse the most important consideration to anyone in the audience was to hear the wellbeing of the miners. The families of the miners and the employees of the company must receive the message differently, according to their needs and persuasion of the situation. Some precautions must be placed before the messages are share to family members, company employees, and media. When communicating tragedy news with family members, the company must deliver the information of the mine collapse with an extreme level of tact, clarity, hope, and assurance that their loved ones will survive this incident. Once the family members are receiving information about the situation is extremely important to keep updating continuous information about the situation, family members need to keep high hopes of their loved ones survival is......

Knowing Where You Come from

...Robert B. Johnson EDU 210 August 17, 2013 <Instructor> Knowing where you come from. Marcus Garvey once said a people without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree without roots. If education is that tree, constantly growing and sprouting leaves, then we must know our roots so we can keep this tree strong. Education has come so far over the course of time, and though constantly evolving, has seen many adversities. Overcoming segregation, culture diversity, and the struggle to implement programs that create equality, shows the desire to build a better future. However, have we truly learned from our problems of the past or are we headed to a state of regression? It’s no secret that our nation is built on a dark history of slavery and segregation. However, the second the first slave owner taught his slaves English to better communication and increase productivity, he also inspired the desire to learn and sparked a flame of change. Though this change was on the rise the need for segregation was still enforced. In 1892 Homer Plessy a Creole man who could easily pass for white, sat in a white’s only car of the east Louisiana Railroad and proclaimed his was African American. Plessy was arrested for his actions, and in 1896 his case was made that the law which stated separation as long as equal was unjust and went against the 13th and 14th amendment. Unknown at the time his arrest would pave the way for a major educational change (Womer...

...KNOWING YOUR AUDIENCE PAPER AND COMMUNICATION ANDRES TAVAREZ BUSINNESS COMMUNICATION BCOM/275 PHOENIX UNIVERSITY 5 OCTOBER 2013 As the news hits the airwaves on the 5th of August 2010, about 33 Chilean miners been trapped in a small copper mine located in the northern part of Chile, I start think of not only the difficulty that the miners them self may have been going through, but also the family members for each of the miners. The question of how are they reacting to the fact that their love ones are trapped 300 meters below the surface, and that they have a very limited supply of food, water, and oxygen (Weik, 2010). Not knowing how or when the miners would be rescue and deliver back to their families, how would the owner of the mine interact with the family members? and how will they deliver such bad news to the families while providing them hope? These are the two questions that this author will address and try to answer in this article How does the owner of the miner prepare to notify the families of the trapped miners? As a mining company one would expect that part of the Emergency Action Plan would cover a situation such as a cave in, the emergency action plan would cover needs to be done, step by step, while no one is really ready for such an emergency, routine practice, and drills. The conduct of such exercise would help the mining company identified, safety concern, procedures for......

...Knowing your Audience and Communication release Eriberto Martinez BCOM/275 Jan 7, 2013 University of Phoenix Knowing Your Audience and Communication Release Overcoming a difficult situation is always satisfying, as a matter of fact we have to cope with difficulties almost everyday in places such as: work, school and at home etc. But every time we hear or watch on the news that somebody faced a mortal situation and got out of it alive, we find those stories of survival amazing, because it is always rewarding when people beat down an odd situation like this one. In august of 2010, I still remembered how the world followed the news of the 33 miners trapped underground in Chile for 69 days, it was at that time that I realized how the whole world only comes together to cooperate on tragedy events. Not matter, if you are American, Latino, African etc but when a natural disaster or a tragedy like that occurs the whole world comes together as one. When a tragedy like the one in Chile occurs the media has to be careful with the way that they inform. Why? Because there are many personal interests involved. On one side you have the business people who on this case are the owners of the mine and on the other side you have the families whose relatives are trapped “at a depth of around 300 meters.” (Weik, J).The owners of the business don’t want to be looked up as the evil people who are responsible for the tragedy and on the other side you have the family and all they want to......

...Knowing Your Audience Kelly Fiscelli BCOM 275 May 11, 2014 Randi Plante Knowing Your Audience Knowing your audience is important for successful communication. The success of a message is determined on the message being created and delivered in an appropriate manner. Time needs to be spent finding out about an audience’s needs and concerns. Some actions that need to be taken before and after a message is delivered to ensure that it is received as intended include a knowledge of the audience characteristics, the needs of the audience, and using an appropriate communication. This essay is about conveying the importance of knowing how to effectively communicate information of a collapsed San Jose copper mine to family members and employees. Audience Characteristics are important to help adapt the message to the audience. Demographic characteristics are observable or measurable (Cheeseboro, 2010). Age, race, and gender are examples of demographic characteristics. When analyzing an audience, you begin by finding out what types of demographic characteristics the audience have. Understanding the characteristics of the audience and their needs will help to communicate an effective message. Psychographics are not as obvious as demographic characteristics and include elements such as attitudes, likes, and values. How the audience feels about a speaker, subject, or information that will be shared is critical to effetely communicate. On August, 5, 2010, San Jose mine located......

...Knowing Your Audience Jacob Kalajian BCOM/275 August 26, 2013 Todd Breton Knowing your audience is one of the most important aspects in communication. You may send the same message to different people but because of your audience you will choose different methods of communication, we have to make sure our message is understood. There was a tragic accident on Thursday August 5th, 2010 there was a mine in Chile that collapsed trapping 33 miners 2300 feet below ground level, without any communication to the outside world, with limited supplies of food, water, and oxygen. After a few days of the collapse still no one knew if the men were alive or dead. Prior to releasing any information to the family and to the people, you have to investigate a little as what went wrong, where the men would be in this scenario and what their best option to keep them alive so when the message is delivered you will cover the questions that will come up. The company had to release the news about the minors, one to the family members and other to the staff of what had happened that day. This is a serious decision the company would have to take as how to transfer this type of news about their loved one. You have more than a few audience in situations like this, you have the families, the peers, the country, and the world, and they will be watching you. Upon delivering the message to the families face-to-face would be best in these situations, you have to be very careful to...

...Knowing Your Audience Team D March 23, 2015 “Knowing Your Audience” When an organization or a company needs to forward information to another group, organization, or company, as the sender it is very vital that you know your audience. When sending a message that is regarding life, death, or a disaster, it is even more important that you know your audience. In disastrous circumstances, the way the victim’s family member, friends, or even the world finds out should be done with tact, compassion, and empathy, and they shouldn’t hear about it from an unreliable source, so the delivery of your message should be prompt When delivering a message that may possibly be dealing with death, there are vital things a sender should consider when dealing with a victim’s family and their employer/colleges, because of the different roles that are played by these two specific audiences. When conveying the message, if the audience isn’t taken into consideration the message could be misunderstood or taken out of context. This can future cause confusion and anger on the receiving end. When communicating with families of a victim, the sender should be prepared to answer a lot of difficult questions pertaining to the victim about what went down.

Knowing Your Audience

...Knowing your audience is essential when presenting any information. It is important to think about the needs of your audience when organizing your information to be presented. Not everyone is the same in an audience, so you must try to consider all of the different points of view that will be listening to you. Your audience will sense if you are concerned about their needs from the way you deliver your information. If they sense you to be trustworthy and credible, then they are more likely to be receptive to your point of view (Moore & Parker, 2009). Imagine what type of information would be most appealing to your audience, and focus your intention on that. Thinking about the interests of your audience will help you to better organize your information, so that your audience can understand it with the least amount of effort. If you can anticipate the needs and wants of your audience, then you have a much better chance of them understanding the original intent of your message with little confusion. When trying to communicate a message to the families of the miners that were involved in the Chilean Copper Mine incident, you must first think about their feelings. The families of the miners are scared and fearing for the lives of their loved ones. If they have not talked to anyone with verifiable information, then they may only be hearing about the incident from the media, which can cause them to imagine the worst. The company needs to reassure the families......
