class in regards to having a program in place, the rotary phone, despite its lack of modern phone features, served its purpose back then but I am certain that we’re grateful for driven innovative minds who didn’t get stuck in the “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it”.
Even though the old saying, “If it ain’t broke, don’t’ fix it” can apply to many things, one shouldn’t take that philosophy when it comes to organizations streamlining their business processes and programs (Docfinity).

While an organization may possess a collective body of knowledge and wisdom from within on improving workflow, it is extremely difficult for any one person to make a change in a work process without the opinions and involvement of other employees and managers (Davidson Ellison).

How beneficial for the training specialist to get everyone engaged and convinced to seize the streamlining process as an opportunity to improve the way their job(s) is/are done rather than as extra work.

Davidson,E., (n.d) How to Streamline Work Process and Improve Work Flow. Demand Media.


Privacy in a workplace and to what extent should one intervenes, has always been two extreme ends of an argument. But, every effective work environment knows how to balance the two, and reach heights of success (Workplace Fairness).

However, employers must provide a disclaimer statement.

Blight Ordinance Misses the Mark

...Hemet's blight ordinance misses the mark, is punitive, and will be bad for business. On September 24, the Hemet City Council passed a rental registration ordinance aimed at addressing the problem of blight throughout the city. It passed 4 – 1 with Councilwoman Shellie Milne voting no on the measure. The ordinance requires that landlords register their rental properties with the city, pay for and submit to inspections and undergo “crime-free housing training”. The ordinance, which stems from resident complaints about blight, is unfair to landlords, and does not address the root cause of blight, irresponsible tenants. The root causes of blight in Hemet are the same as in any other city in America today and have little to do with the landlords. It is irresponsible tenants that cause blight. It is irresponsible tenants who would rather spend their welfare checks on alcohol and drugs rather than pay their rent. Without receiving the rents from moochers who are trying to live rent free, there is no money left for managing property and making necessary repairs. What is worse, now we have a harmful new city ordinance that makes it more difficult for the taxpaying property owner to manage his property since the ordinance will ultimately result in property owners paying out more money in both fees and fines. The Hemet city council, in their attempt to satisfy some residents complaints about blight, have ignored the on-going......

Subway Misses the Mark on a Customer Relationship Opportunity

...Subway Misses the Mark on a Customer Relationship Opportunity Share Last week I got an email from a reader who wanted to share an experience she had with Subway restaurants. Unfortunately what started out as a positive experience turned into a negative one, and Subway really missed the mark on two fronts: customer service and involving customers in the decision-making process. Kathy Garcia, a fan of Subway's tuna subs, sent an email to the Subway website to share how much she loves the sandwich, and suggested the company return it to the famed $5 menu. She expected nothing more than a "thanks for your email and suggestion" reply. However, the response she received from a Subway customer service rep left a bad taste in her mouth. "Thank you for taking the time to contact us," the email says. "I appreciate the fact that you took the time and effort to share your insights and comments with us." So far, so good. Until...

Holden Caulfields In Catcher In The Rye

...back before he leaves. Another reason the reader knows that they have a decent relationship is when Phoebe says, “She put the suitcase down. “My Clothes” she said I’m going with you. Can I? Okay?”(Salinger 226). When Holden is saying his farewell, she expresses that she wants to go with him because she doesn’t want him to be alone. Holden states “She took the dough of me. I’m not mad at you anymore. She said. ‘I know.’ Hurry up- the thing’s gonna start soon Then all of a sudden she gave me a kiss” (Salinger 233). His sister forgave him for not wanting her to go with him and he announces that he will stay. She was extremely content that he wasn’t going anywhere, kisses him, and returns to the ride. Holden misses his brother, Allie, who died of Leukemia. One reason why Holden misses Allie is evident when he states, “I remembered once, the summer I was around 12, teeing off and all, and having a hunch that if I turned around all of a sudden, I’d see Allie. So I did, and sure enough , he was sitting on...

Poem Optimized 16 minutes ago View original Refresh Menu Search Submit Our Casuarina Tree Analysis by Toru Dutt By Ishaan on July 29, 2013 5 SHARES 4 COMMENTS Analysis of Our Casuarina Tree by Toru Dutt Our Casuarina Tree is a poem by Toru Dutt which is about the Casuarina tree that grew in the poetess’ courtyard and her memories associated with it. Summary The poetess writes this in reminiscence of the Casuarina tree that grew in the courtyard of her childhood home. The poem opens with a description of the tree, tall enough to make it seem like it touches the stars, strong enough to continue growing despite scars on its trunk and despite all this it provides support to a creeper. And yet she gives it the air of a Gentleman when she describes how the tree is forever adorned with flowers and birds and bees. Thus we see the tree in her childhood was not only as a paragon of strength, but gentle and loved by the birds and bees. अब मीठे मना मत क जये सु एक गलास पानी म ल यह... को !हर बह म रोज २ पाउं घटाती ँय क म रात को सफ़ एक लास पीती ँ ड् स She goes on to tell us about the mornings in her childhood when she would wake up to the sight of the Casuarina Tree. Come summer or winter, her morning would remain incomplete without the sight of the Casuarina tree, often with a baboon sitting on its crest. She then paints a serene picture of the morning with the kokilas singing, the cows on the pasture and the water lilies in the spring. However, the figure of the......

...After the CR Servicing team member brought the client on the line, rather than beginning with an introduction of himself, Cody began the call with "Hi Teddy, how are you doing today?" We risk losing control of the phone call when we don't come in with a strong introduction for ourselves. - Proper grammar/language/word choice. (5:52) At the end of the call, Cody advises the client "refinances can be a little bit of a trouble. Anything with mortgages can be a little bit of trouble." Consider re-wording, so as not to portray QL in a poor light. "I can't imagine what you've gone through, Teddy..." - Empathy. (1:50 - 2:10 and throughout phone call) Cody misses the opportuity to empathize with the client regarding him not yet recieving his cash back, his previous loan not yet being paid off, and his poor experience with QL. We want to be sure that we acknowledge our clients with empathy to show that we are listening and that we care. For example: "I understand the frustration, Teddy.

Current Issues in Healthcare

...Current Issues in Health Care University of Phoenix Health Law and Ethics HCS 545 Professor: Dr. Michael Grossman February 14, 2015 Current Issues in Health Care Medical errors persist despite modern technology. Although, this is not a new issue it remains in the forefront of the health care community. Health care is a decade or more behind many other high-risk industries in its attention to ensuring basic safety (Institute of Medicine, 1999). Medical errors have been in the spotlight since the 1990's when government studied the sudden increase in the number of hospital deaths. According to Lester and Tritter (2001) "Medical error is an actual or potentially serious lapse in the standard of care provided to a patient or harm caused to a patient through the performance of a health service or health care professional". A study in the Journal of Health Care Finance from Wolters Kluwer finds medical errors in the U.S. may cost up to $1 trillion per year (Goedert, 2012). Medical errors can occur in many ways including but not limited to wrong site surgery, surgical errors, medication errors, adverse drug reactions, medical equipment failure, diagnostic error and communication errors. The Journal of Patient Safety estimates that the numbers of deaths in 2014 that are directly related to medical errors top 210,00 and may reach 440,00 (Allen, 2013). The statistics indicate that to ensure patient safety the reduction of medical errors must become a priority of...

Case Study 3: Managing Contention for Shared Resources on Multicore Processors

...Case Study 3: Managing Contention for Shared Resources on Multicore Processors By Ja’Kedrick L. Pearson Professor Hossein Besharatian CIS 512 June 2, 2013 Memory contention Memory contention is a state an OS memory manager can reside in when to many memory requests are issued to it from an active application possibly leading to a DOS condition specific to that application. A test was run on a group of applications several times, on three different schedules, each with two different parings sharing a memory domain. The three pairing permutations afforded each application an opportunity to run with each of the other three applications with the same memory domain. The three applications being discussed in this paper are the Soplex, Sphinx, and the NAMD. The Soplex is a linear programming (LP) solver based on the revised simplex algorithm. It features preprocessing techniques, exploits sparsity, and offers primal and dual solving routines. It can be used as a standalone solver reading MPS or LP format files as well as embedded into other programs via a C++ class library. Sphinx is an open source full text search server, designed from the ground up with performance, relevance (aka search quality), and integration simplicity in mind. It's written in C++ and works on Linux (RedHat, Ubuntu, etc), Windows, MacOS, Solaris, FreeBSD, and a few other systems (Sphinx Technologies, 2013). NAMD is a parallel molecular dynamics code designed......

Might even want to test limits of how high you drone can fly. Plus you can even use drones to see closer look of wildlife animals. Well it sounds fun of all be most of these actions have serious consequences. So then a question appears out of thin air. Should there been more regulations surrounding drones and what activities you can’t pilot them? There have been several reports drones having close misses with aviation vehicles. For example in August, 16 the pilot of an Allegiant Air Flight filled with rows of passengers and approaching Old Angeles International Airport spotted a small drone just under the airliner's wing. The pilot specifically said,” It almost hit us.” And this isn’t the first time close misses with a drone have been reported. There was a drone came little too close for safety with a news helicopter. Then one more that actually crashed into Airbus A326. These next close situations were followed by the harming of...

Computer organization refers to the operational units and their interconnections that realize the architectural specifications. Examples of architectural attributes include the instruction set, the number of bits used to represent various data types (e.g., numbers, characters), I/O mechanisms, and techniques for addressing memory. Organizational attributes include those hardware details transparent to the programmer, such as control signals; interfaces between the computer and peripherals; and the memory technology used. 1.2 Computer structure refers to the way in which the components of a computer are interrelated. Computer function refers to the operation of each individual component as part of the structure. 1.3 Data processing; data storage; data movement; and control. 1.4 Central processing unit (CPU): Controls the operation of the computer and performs its data processing functions; often simply referred to as processor.
