THEORIST ON GRIEF DIES AT 78: DR ELIZABETH KUBLER-ROSS DIES AT 78: [New Orleans Times-Picayune: Aug 26, 2004: The Associated Press]
ELISABETH KUBLER-ROSS DIES AT AGE 78 ON AUGUST 24, 2004: [From Elisabeth Kubler-Ross website: ]:

(Taken from a seminar manuscript "Dying, Death and Grief"
By Chaplain Paul G. Durbin, Ph.D.)
From the Book of Ecclesiastes, the 5th verse of the 9th chapter, we read, "For the living know that they shall die." Life is but a short journey from the cradle to the grave. For some death comes early in life, for others in the middle years and for some it comes with old age. Whatever period of life death occurs, it comes to all. Death is the great equalizer for it comes to the rich and poor, the loved and unloved, the happy and the sad, to the male and female, the good and the bad. In some cases death can be postponed or delayed, but eventually it comes to all. None of us are exempt as we realize that one day, we too must die.
Dying, death and bereavement are fundamental and pervasive aspects of the human experience. We can only achieve fullness of living by understanding and appreciating these realities. The absence of such understanding and appreciation may result in unnecessary suffering, loss of dignity, alienation and diminished quality of living. Though education about dying, death and bereavement should be an essential component of the education process, it has been greatly neglected in both formal and informal education.
During this seminar, I hope that you will be involved as a total person with feelings, emotions and intellect. Through lecture, exercises and discussion our time together can help us better understand dying and death so that we can better face death and therefore make it a little…...

Designing User Interfaces

...What is user interface design? User interface design or user interface engineering is the design of computers, appliances, machines, mobile communication devices, software applications, and websites with the focus on the user's experience and interaction. The goal of user interface design is to make the user's interaction as simple and efficient as possible, in terms of accomplishing user goals—what is often called user-centered design. Good user interface design facilitates finishing the task at hand without drawing unnecessary attention to itself. Graphic design may be utilized to support its usability. The design process must balance technical functionality and visual elements (e.g., mental model) to create a system that is not only operational but also usable and adaptable to changing user needs. A user interface is the system by which people (users) interact with a machine. The user interface includes hardware (physical) and software (logical) components. User interfaces exist for various systems, and provide a means of Input, which allows the users to manipulate a system, and/or Output, which allows the system to indicate the effects of the users' manipulation. Generally, the goal of human-machine interaction engineering is to produce a user interface which makes it easy, efficient, and enjoyable to operate a machine in the way which produces the desired result. This generally means that the operator needs to provide minimal input to achieve the desired output, and also...

User Manual Critique

...User Manual Critique Chris Bolte ENG/221 November 5, 2012 Janet Chappell So many people depend on some form of media to escape the everyday grind, stay informed, or simply to relax. Media comes in many forms, such as film, radio, internet, and text. Consumers all over the world fill their homes with these many forms of media. In fact, as of May, 2011, consumers worldwide spent over $4.2 billion dollars on home entertainment, and that figure is down from the previous year by 9.8% (Dan, 2011). That is not $4.2 billion spent a year -- that is $4.2 billion spent during the first quarter alone. With all of those media devises in all those homes, it can be a hassle keeping track of all those remote controls. After all, everything comes with a remote control these days. Many have tried to organize the handful of remotes that are in their possession by labeling them, keeping them in a designated drawer or basket, or even gone as far as “Velcroing” them to the wall. However, there is a better method to the madness that requires a little less creativity, but more ingenuity. It is a great little solution known as the universal remote. In most cases, you can put up to four devices onto one remote, eliminating the frustrating remote control cluster that many people deal with, and they can cost as little as $4 and up to more than $100. It all depends on your needs and budget. In this user manual critique, the item reviewed is the One For All Universal Replacement...

User Policy

...Acceptaple Use Policy An acceptable use policy (AUP) is a policy that a user must agree to follow in order to be provided with access to a network or to the Internet. It is common oractice for many businesses and educational facilities to require that employees or students sign an acceptable use policy before being granted a network ID.

The increased use of such resources requires administrators, teachers, library media specialists, students, and parents take steps to insure that are used responsibility for K-12 instruction. In response to these concerns, schools or school districts are required To establish guidelines for the appropriate use of computer networks.

Uis - User Experience Interface

...California Lutheran University Requirement Gathering User Interfaces Kianoosh Ashtari CSC300 Professor John Dillon December 4, 2013 Tablet PCs are growing so rapidly that desktop computers are slowly losing most of their market share. Such phenomenal--thanks to the ideas and leadership skills of Steve Jobs--is leading the tech world into a whole new stage. Perhaps a stage where ordinary individuals have a chance to finally market their own creations more freely. But why is it that a tablet pc like the iPad has been able to maintain its position in the market despite all the new competition that it has been faced with? Perhaps the answer could be found in the fact that Steve Job's followed the footsteps of Da Vinci: "simplicity is the ultimate sophistication." From my personal viewpoint, the original iPad was nearly perfect from every angle, at least at the time, it seemed that it was. Simplified to the fullest extent, it focused on the main tasks that it was built to handle. A home button on the surface, a power button on the top, volume and the lock and mute button on the right side and a charger plug on the bottom. It truly was the perfect device to browse the web and handle simple everyday tasks such as sending and receiving emails, reading the news, and keeping a virtual library. Thanks to its well-designed, and carefully simplified user interface, nearly everything about the iPad was and still is in harmony. Despite the recent changes and the loss of......

Different Computer Users Today Lavon Hawkins Analyzing 6 different types of computer users and the needs of their profession. Abstract  Most computer users fit into one of these basic categories. The Internet & Email user, home users, small or home business, computer graphics, and gaming users. Based upon the profession, and the needs within said profession, would determine what is needed to perform daily duties Different Types of Computer Users    I would identify the “stay at home” Mom or Dad as the more basic user. Basically he or she would be a basic internet user. Most of the time just for checking his or her email, processing letters, tracking bills and finances. It may also be used for saving photos or listening to music. Browsing web sites like Facebook, MySpace or maybe a dating website (if he or she is single) may also be an option. Processing speeds probably wouldn’t be a concern because of the low priority for internet purposes. Because of this, I believe an AMD processor computer would be better because less space would be needed and it wouldn’t require much hard drive space and/or RAM.      Home business owners may need more reliability. Depending on their business......

User Settings

...the issues the supervisor is complaining about. The way I can help fix the issues is by assigning each user to a profile type and adjust the user control settings for each user and assign them to a group that the supervisor will have some control over. The first thing I will need is to get a list of each user and what their job is. Second I will need to get a list of what groups you would like to create so we can create them to give each user the access they need for doing their job. The interns that are temporary user will we give them a mandatory profile as a standard user. By doing this we will have a set profile setting that is downloaded each time the user logs on to their account. Also by being a standard user they will have very limited access to change the desktop, and what they can change will not be saved to the server and when they log on again it will be set to the standard settings. When we assign each user to a group that will give them what they need to access to do their job. As for the Team leads we will give them a roaming user profile, which will allow them to be able to log on to any computer and have the same desktop settings and programs on each computer. We will also give them access to each of the groups that they need to complete their jobs. This should give them the access they need. As for the marketing staff we will give them a local user profile with expand rights so they can modify their workstation to their liking. They will only have......

...Factor and User Interface Assignment 1 For the Air Macao web site, I have described some comments which are in positive and negative ways. Positive things: 1. Strive for consistency: Using consistent font size and color in each area on the home page. Web sites use consistent layout in the same languages. 2. Cater to universal Usability: A new web site for those cities which “Air Macao” has the flight line provides their local language. For example: It provides Korean, Chinese and English. 3. Offer informative feedback: When purchasing flight tickets, this requires people to input their personal information. On the “Online Booking” page step 4, it requires users to fill-in personal information. If you entered something wrong, a dialog will be shown to tell user which item’s inputs are wrong. 4. Design dialogs to yield closure: On the “Online Booking” page, whenever users purchase tickets, it tells that there are six steps (procedures) to complete a transaction in the beginning. When you finished step one, it indicates you to the second step, step by step. 5. Prevent error: For the user’s input data, when users who want to purchase/book tickets, it provides 2-D menu calendars and drop-down lists for those cities “Air Macao” provides flight line on the “Online Booking” page. 6. Permit easy reversal of actions: When purchasing tickets on the “Online Booking” page, it provides a “Last Step” button on the bottom of the web page for users to redo......

...------------------------------------------------- Investers Present and potential owners (investors) are prime users of financial statements. They continually assess and compare the prospects of alternative investments. The assessment of each investment is often based on two variables: expected return and risk. Expected return refers to the increase in the investor’s wealth that is expected over the investment’s time horizon. This wealth increase is comprised of two parts: (1) increases in the market value of the investment and (2) dividends (periodic cash distributions from the firm to its owners). Both of these sources of wealth depend on the firm’s ability to generate cash. Accordingly, financial statements can improve decision making by providing information that helps current and potential investors estimate a firm’s future cash flows. Risk refers to the uncertainty surrounding estimates of expected return. The term expected implies that the return is not guaranteed. For most investments, numerous alternative future returns are possible. For example, an investor may project that a firm’s most likely return for the upcoming year is $100,000. However, the investor recognizes that this is not the only possibility. There is some chance that the firm might generate returns of $90,000 or $110,000. Still other possibilities might be $80,000 and $120,000. The greater the difference among these estimates, the greater the risk. Financial statements help investors assess risk by......

Gun Users

...Gun users For the gun issue Boycott A Los Angeles Times report suggested that the most visible result of this week's boycott was the contrarian buycott, which included Ohio State University students rallying outside an Ohio Starbucks holding signs, including one that said, “Because I CAN'T carry a cop!” Once learning of the boycott, gun owners sprang into quick action, organizing a "reverse boycott" and taking a page from the NGVAC by coordinating through Facebook. Support for the "reverse boycott" was so successful that, before Valentine's Day arrived, the NGVAC was reportedly forced to remove the list of boycott participants from public view on its Facebook event page after the tiny number was dwarfed by more than 24,500 Facebook users committing to participate in the "reverse boycott." (What they cannot hide, however, is the tiny number of followers on this supposedly national anti-gun groups' Facebook page - just 258. By comparison, Buckeye Firearms Association has over 11,700.) Many participants agreed to pay and/or tip with $2 bills to signify support for the Second Amendment. And while it is impossible to measure the exact financial boost the reverse boycott had on Starbucks' bottom line, the anecdotal evidence posted at the Facebook event page for the 'BUYcott' suggests it was substantial. The comments also suggest that most store managers weren't aware of the NGVAC boycott, but they were definitely aware of the increased business thanks to gun owners! In case......

Raquel Medina ENG/221 August 14, 2012 Gregory Bontz Recently purchased, by the writer, was an HP All-in-One printer, scanner, and copier, the HP Photosmart 5510 series. A manual was provided in the boxed package but can also be viewed online at The manual provides simplicity, clarity, attractiveness, organization and graphical illustrations. It is a well written instructional manual for users of any technical level, although the length of the document is a little too long. According to Don Norman, “People do not want to read manuals — they want to do their activity. Help them get right to work, with minimum reading” (Norman, 2012). At times a reader can become confused and frustrated with a user manual that is too big. Keeping the manual clear and simple is important. Simplicity • Positive: The HP Photosmart 5510 series user manual is made simple because of the shortness in its index. There are only nine major topics that are covered in the manual but these nine are the key points to operating the device. The manual has each topic linked to the page so a simple point and click gets you to the information needed. • Negative: The Technical Information portion of this manual was not easy to follow. Although, technical information is not the easiest to make simple. Clarity • Positive: Clarity is important when reading a user manual because your......
