Website development is not as easy as one might think. One of the most difficult decisions is selecting the layout and content on the site. If a business is supplying the content (i.e., descriptions of their products), the designer must find a layout that is beneficial to the company and user while giving a professional, appealing appearance to the site. Paul Boag posted in his blog that the business must prioritize, describe and measure their objectives for the user on the site (Boag, 2013). Additionally, their descriptions must be clear and concise while not targeting every demographic of users. Normally, the design or content on the site will not please every user that comes across it so it is important to not obsess over the demographic particulars (Boag, 2013).

Dmitry Fadeyev stated that web design is not art, so the designer must have a clear direction which will communicate all of the goals and objectives effectively (Fadeyev, 2008). He stated that there are six steps for developing a successful website. First, establish the goals with the company. Ask yourself, what is the purpose of the site? Determine their desires for the site’s success and create a flow chart detailing the direction and navigation, known as the user’s needs. Next, identify the target audience. Develop the site to match the demographic that you are targeting on paper for the company to review. Utilize Photoshop in the creation of this process. Third step is to determine and create the brand image. Utilize Dreamweaver and Photoshop to create the look or design for the company’s site. Does this company have a set look for their corporation? For instance, Chuck E. Cheese’s brand has a lovable mouse that caters to the child’s imagination. Have continuous meetings with the company to ensure the design is in concert with their desires.…...

...Phase 3 Discussion Board EM208-1201A-08 Web Development I Colorado Technical University The software tool I chosen for this discussion is FrontPage2003. This website design tool not only allows you to design but also manage your files. You can add delete and rename as well as move files around. It allows you to fix problems with broken hyperlinks by running special reports. It will also allow you to publish a Web Site. Unlike other Website creation tools FrontPage stores all the files in hidden folders called metadata. This information allows FrontPage to function. They are hidden so they cannot be deleted or changed by accident. When Windows Explorer is set up to show hidden files you can see the metadata folders. There are two major types of folders one named _vti_cnf. This folder contains information about every file including the links to other files. The other file is _vti_pvt folder that contains all the configuration information for the web site its sub sites and the permissions information. One of the major advantages to using FrontPage is its ability to work in conjunction with other Microsoft products like EXCEL, POWERPOINT, and Word. FrontPage is great for web sites using a lot of text. It does a little bit of everything because it has embedded HTML editors. The major advantage of Microsoft FrontPage is found in the site management tools. You can do things like verify links and replace content easily, especially helpful when managing large websites.

Hlth400: Unit 5 Discussion Board

...Grade Received, "A" Healthcare is a privilege that is within reach of the rich, a benediction supplied strictly under the consideration of a business who hires, a government-financed insurance plan for the aged, or a generous gift supplied from the generosity of other individuals. Our Founding Fathers said that we are gifted with indispensable rights, including life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. It is understood that for individuals to live, then we must remain healthy. However, there is very little discussion of this right in the Constitution. One particular amendment to the Constitution says that convicts are to be approved to have a right to healthcare (Healthcare: A Privilege, Not a Right, 2011). Presently, convicts are the only ones that are given the right to healthcare. If our Founding Fathers would have foreseen how important healthcare would become, it is likely that they would have allowed each and every individual to have a right to healthcare. When the Constitution was being framed, although inadequate in comparison to the present norms, healthcare was more or less attainable to all individuals. There wasn’t a large deficit of people that could not afford it or have access to it (Healthcare: A Privilege, Not a Right, 2011). Makers of the Constitution, such as Thomas Jefferson, were greatly affected from their own happenings. Thomas Jefferson was not very trusting of doctors, and instead trusted nature. Founded on a practical image of the......

...Unit 5- Discussion Board: Overtime as the United States progressed and became more culturally diverse, the melting pot theory and the American mosaic concept were formed (M.U.S.E., 2010). During the 19th century, the melting pot theory was formed and described as a blending or fusion of society where different cultures and nations and mixed together to form a common culture. More recently, the American mosaic concept was shaped essentially stating people from different cultures and backgrounds come together in harmony adding their own unique contributions to society, otherwise known as multiculturalism. The American mosaic appears to be a bit more realistic in regards to our society. One reason behind this is everyone is different. The blending of different nationalities, cultures, and religions and forming of one common culture seems a bit outrageous. I think it would be truly unrealistic for individuals to give up their true identity, language, and/or culture to become basically one in the same. Additionally, I do not think it’s possibly for one and all to be considered the same when problems such as discrimination still exist (Carliner, 1975). As stated by Xiao-huang (1998), “the Asian-Pacific population in the United States grew from one million in 1965 to over nine million in 1995”(para.2). This is just one example of one ethnic group who has dramatically changed the American demographic. Asian Americans have made many contributions to American society. This......

...Jim O’Brien Phase 3 Discussion Board – Project Risk Management MPM434-1204A-02 Contracts and Procurement Professor Christian Cheney No matter the size of a project, there are going to be risks associated with the project. Identifying risks early in a project can be critical to whether a project succeeds or fails. You can gain success for your project if you deal with project risks in a proactive manner. The result will be that you minimize the impact on the project and seize the opportunity to correct potential project road blocks (B. Jutte). All project plan need to include a risk management plan that is implemented early in the project and monitored throughout the life of the project (Risk Management Guide for DoD Acquisition). This discussion post asked us to identify four potential overall risks that could be experienced in the execution of our contract and procurement plan. The four major risks that could be experienced in the execution of my contract and procurement plan are: technical, schedule, production and cost. My contract and procurement plan is the development of a variable speed air refueling drogue to support tactical air refueling of rotary-wing and tilt-rotor aircraft by Air Combat Command and Air Force Special Operations Command C-130J tanker aircraft. Currently the tanker aircraft are configured with a either a low speed drogue for rotary-wing air refueling or a high speed drogue for tilt-rotor air refueling. Both of the commands......

...Discussion Board Question: Think of a time when you were really dissatisfied with a job in a company or your role in a volunteer organization, student group (incl. fraternity/sorority) or as a student in a class. Describe the situation. What did you think about the situation? How did you feel about it emotionally? How did your job satisfaction influence your behavior? I once worked at an Irish restaurant while I was in high school that was completely dreadful. We worked extra long shifts with no lunch breaks would sometimes be forced to work doubles on weekends with no breaks at all and no overtime pay. The restaurant was new in town so busy was slow, I would walk away from an 8 hour shift with only 15$. The manager and owners were rude and couldn’t even remember our names and were extremely insensitive about requesting time off no matter what the circumstances were. It was the only job I could find at the time so I was stuck working it for 2 months until the summer ended, it was horrible. The job itself was exhausting from being on your feet all day and walking around the restaurant. I was constantly tired which make me grumpy and very irritable even when I wasn’t working. Because of the rudeness of the employers it caused all of us to be less friendly towards each other, which made a bad work environment. The whole situation made me become a poor employee unfortunately. I didn’t try my best and would frequently show up late and slack on my work. The lack of respect from...

...Discussion Board Unit 5 Busn105/1304A Discussion Board Unit 5 Describe the challenges that most businesses face as a result of continually changing technology. What is a management’s role in addressing these challenges? Businesses have a lot of challenges keeping up with the newest technologies. Every day there are newer devices that are better and faster. Take the cell phone for instance, the newer cell phones like the blackberry or Nokia Windows are now able to conduct business and are able to send in reports. Technology has come a long way from desk top to laptop to ipads and now cell phones. Even the internet has come so far from dial up. Now you have wireless. Restaurants and hotels allow you to hook up to their internet. It’s a challenge for businesses to keep up. A lot of research goes into what would be better for businesses. Managers need to make sure that the new technology is going to be useful. They need to know that the transitions are not going to affect the business but make it better than it was. It’s definitely a huge job in keeping up with the changing technology and it’s a constant change and very costly too. The managers need to make sure that all personal is also learning the newest technology. Keeping up with changing technology affects everyone in the business. What types of information technology would increase production? Using programmed machines would increase production. Also, using computers and the internet...

...Discussion Board Unit 5 Comp101/1401B Introduction to Computers A. Questions for weekly discussions and conversations. 1. What are some of the main applications for Object Linking and Embedding (OLE)? OLE 1.0 was released in 1990 by Microsoft; it was the evolved from the Dynamic Data Exchange. A couple of the main applications for Object Linking and Embedding are Microsoft Document and Microsoft Excel. The reason for linking and embedding is maintaining active links between two documents or embedding one type of document within another document. Object Linking is a linked component that stores the path to the original data which is often in a separate fie. Embedding is using the Paste command in a container application that can create an embedded component or an embedded item. 2. Under what circumstances might you use OLE to embed an Excel spreadsheet in a Word document? Why might OLE be better than “copy and Paste”? You might use OLE to embed an Excel spreadsheet in a Word document when you want to work within the original document. It makes it easier to be able to work with. OLE is better than copy and paste because of OLE; you can create a chart in Excel, copy it, and paste the copy into a document in Word. But you can also go beyond the copy-and-paste operation. You can link the copied chart back to its original file in Excel (the source file). Then, if you make changes to the original file, the changes are automatically made to the......

Phase 1 Discussion Board

...Applications Of Discrete Mathematics 7/8/2014 Phase 1 Discussion Board 2 To describe the notion of union and intersection we must first start with a set. A set can be numbers, objects, people etc. When you have sets of things, they can be combined to create a union or have elements in common. For example, if a company were looking for an employee within the database system they could search using last names. Say department A has Smith, Jones, Brown, Doe. Department B has Doe, White, Turner, Smith. The union of these sets would be written as follows: A U B = {Jones, Brown, Doe, Smith, White, Turner} The sets intersect with the two names in common, Doe and Smith. That would be written as: A n B= {Doe, Smith} The logical “and” and the logical “or” are important for database retrieval and flowcharts to help the system or reader to understand which way they need to go to seek out the information requested. Simple and compound statements help understand this notion. To help understand this let’s refer back to the original example. If the person searching the company database wanted to find a specific employee they would search for the last name and maybe first initial. This would take the search from a simple statement to a compound statement. The database would then need to search for the last name first and when it found the right name, Smith, it would then need to search for the first initial J....

It includes a job Title, reporting relationships, a summary of responsibilities, and a level of decision-making authorized and hiring requirements information.” Hawkes, C. L, &Weathinton, B. L. (2014).Competency-Based Versus Task-Based Job descriptions: Effects on applicant attract. Journal of behavior & applied management, 15(3), 190-211 Summary: In an Organization, Human Resources is responsible for making Job Descriptions and handing them over to management. Some of the Job Descriptions are too long, outdated meaning that the information is not current, it is boring and confusing. According to Miller, a best Job description is one that is simple and straight forward, easy to understand. It is the road map to a good performance which benefits an Organization or Company instead of a boring document that contains theoretical activities (Miller, pg. 394) A Job description written well can also be used or rather can serve as a reminder of what is expected of the employees and most of all can be used in the recruiting process to attract good candidates who can be motivated and be able to perform a great job. When writing a Job description, it should be in such a way......

We are glad to have you as a part of the team hear at EEC and I am sure with your experience and accounting background you are going to be a perfect fit. I do understand that you have spend most of your career working in a financial accounting office preparing journal entries, and you have a great understanding of financial accounting however you have no experience with managerial accounting. I am providing this memo in hopes of giving you with an explanation of the similarities and differences between financial and managerial account, give an example of managerial accounting reports, show how management might use information to make decisions and show an example of the horizontal analyzes, vertical analyzes and ratio reports. People may think that financial and managerial accounting is the same thing. On the surface, the actual number crunching of financial data contains a lot of similarities and both accounting types use much of the same data. While it is true there are some similarities, there are also some distinct differences. By taking a closer look at both types of record keeping, these differences become a bit more apparent as they each serve their own function and purpose. |Managerial......

...Week 1 Discussion Topic 1 - What went wrong at D&A Labs? After reviewing CSEC630 Module 1, provide a realistic scenario on possibly what went wrong at D&A labs and discuss countermeasures that you are aware of, that can help prevent the situation from recurring. When addressing this question consider the following: Assuming the company had a firewall, why didn't it stop the intruders? Do you think an Intrusion Prevention System would have helped in this situation? Where and how was the company utilizing encryption? Do you think this gave them a false sense of security? D&A Laboratories had an external firewall in place to protect their information systems from unauthorized access. Protecting companies’ data in today’s world can be a challenging task. Firewalls should not be only the solution for protecting companies. Firewalls are designed specifically to prevent threats from the outside world from reaching the internal network. In today’s evolving threat landscape, there should be additional layers of security measures to protect information and information systems. Gondcalves (2000) writes, “Firewalls are designed to keep unwanted and unauthorized traffic from an unprotected network like the Internet out of a private network like LAN or WAN, yet still allowing users and other users of the local network to access Internet services.” But just solely implementing firewalls may not ensure the protection of networks.

...Iesha Fox July 19th, 2012 MGMT 250 Discussion Board 1 Prof. John Hargiss Entrepreneurship Discussion Question 1 Over the past few years, our economy has gotten worse and worse, but I would still take the risk of opening up my own business. To me, now would be the perfect time to open up. I think this because no matter how bad the economy is, that won’t stop anyone from going out and purchasing anything from stores. Although there are pros and cons to starting your own business right now, I would still go for it. I believe before anyone opens up their own business, you have to know what you are getting into. You have to have a lot of knowledge and have to be very committed to what you are about. I think before starting your own, you need to at least work in a business for maybe two or three years. That way you know what goes on inside the business. Try to talk to someone that owns a business so that you can get some key pointers what will help along the way. Another important thing to consider before you get started is money. You have to have money to make money. I know it takes a lot of money to get started, so you have to think are you really prepared to start your own business. Most people try to get loans from banks. But to do this, you need a credit score of “700”. You need to be able to manage your money, if you don’t know how the business won’t last long because you’ll soon go bankrupt because you aren’t keeping up. The statement “A student whose main......
