Task Performance Indicator: A Management Metric for Customer Experience

By Gerry McGovern.

“Measuring user experience can seem like a vague, touchy-feely process
with amorphous results. Where’s the value? Managers can’t always get
their arms around concepts like ‘better’ or ‘simpler’ or ‘faster.’
Gerry McGovern says that’s why it’s important to have a tool like the
Task Performance Indicator, which gives reliable, actionable metrics
that can be revisited over time.”

What Is the User Experience of Content?

By Augustin Kendall.

“When people hear the words User Experience (UX), they usually think
of visual design, front-end programming, or interface design. The User
Experience Professionals Association defines UX as every aspect of a
user’s interaction with a product, service, or company that make up
the user’s perceptions of the whole. What some people forget is that
the information on a site-the content-is also a huge part of UX…”

The danger of epidemics coming to areas with higher and rising temperatures due to climate change will impact society and industry in a growing number of regions and areas. One such industry group is the tourism industry.  The impacts on the tourism industry due to Ebola and the Zika Virus would be one such area to explore.  This document provides links to database search results designed to find sources that discuss tourism and either Ebola or the Zika Virus

and share, utilize or cite statistical or demographic data sources.  Keep in mind that the Zika epidemic is very recent compared to the Ebola epidemic so that scholarly publications will be far more limited for Zika, especially those that utilize or share statistical data or links to that data. It should also be noted that these links are “self updating” and will run the searches at the time they are used so that newer sources will be found. Links for sources cited lead to a Google Scholar or Google Books search result for the search of the title in either of each source cited.

This growing group of health threats will combine the research areas of emerging infectious diseases and that of tropical diseases and the roles of such research will extend further and further both north and south of the equator as time passes. Furthermore weakened health and immune systems will invite subsequent diseases after one has taken hold and remission may replace cured in many cases of illness.

Furthermore, this search produces images that are charts tables and graphs and those who have gotten this far in the post would not likely be here if data and statistics is not part of their

These comments in a Medlib search prompted the message I composed and sent in response to this statement:
“Until about a year ago one could search PubMed by full author name and get reasonably useful results (e.g. Meshobob, Kukalaka [au]), but the search algorithm was changed so that instead of searching “Meshobob, Kukalaka” it searches “Meshobob” OR “Kukalaka”, making known author searches much more problematic. ”

How Does One Deal with Doing Research on a Topic Like
“Adulteration and the Meaning of Tourism????
AND A Couple of Other Topics and Some Research Guides to Help with Them

.

.

The topic of Adulteration and the Meaning of Tourism came up for a lively sharing of thoughts and ideas about this topic on a tourism discussion group.  I shared unrelated thoughts about finding and researching topics containing jargon as part of the labeling of the subject in a post to that list that follows below.

.

.

This is not in any sense a criticism of any part of this discussion. I just found myself surprised and bemused by this strange juxtaposition of words. Adulteration (can you say food products) is not expected to be found in conjunction with tourism, let alone meaning of tourism, but it is a catchy way of labeling an issue.

.

I decided to check a few databases and see what this combination of concepts produced in the literature and here are my results.

Tight search

adulteration AND “meaning of tourism”

Relaxed Version

adulteration AND meaning AND tourism

Google Scholar Tight

http://tinyurl.com/zmd3ndf

Google Scholar Relaxed

http://tinyurl.com/hd6vma8

.

The above is a great example of how a slight change in a search can produce a radical difference in the number and ratio of relevant to not so relevant sources in those results, but given the low level of results in the “tight search”, there may be some usable or even good sources in the
“relaxed search”.

.

Google Books Tight

https://www.google.com/search?tbm=bks&q=adulteration+AND+%22meaning+of+tourism%22

Looks like an odd meaning of adulteration has been found in these results
causing a strange and irrelvant result.

Google Books Relaxed

This looks much more probative.

Now if a student visited my office with this wording of this topic, I would search just these ways to see if a paper could be supported with a reasonable literature review in quality and quantity of relevant sources.

.

In this case the next step would be to think hard about the other words
that could be used in a search to find what is meant by adulteration in this context and come up with a better group of relevant content.  In the meantime get those pens, keyboards and journal or book submission letters going as, in terms of publications, you folks may have a virgin topic
to explore and get out into the academic media.

.

Now if you folks will excuse an off topic for tourism subject, I posted last week, (it is Sunday already, where did the rest of the weekend go!!!)
a discussion about searching that may be useful to you, your students and your colleagues at the link below.

By the way, if you follow the links to my research guide in this post to SCIMAGO, you will find an excellent list for both tourism and for hospitality and other lists related to tourism of the top journals in each field you explore based on Scopus criteria.

I also have a new and under constuction bibliography on Public Spaces and Gender which is still getting journal article citations added but has plenty of books and articles already cited. Furthermore, the link of each item in this bibliography takes one in this guide section to a search of the title in either Google Books or Google Scholar making each entry link into a bibliography of sources about the term content of the book title.

Thought

Scholars, academicians, professors and writers often teach and write using a very specialized and jargon filled discourse. Much can be gained by these folks in terms of increased audience and improved understanding if they define all of these specialized terms with plain English equivalents.

In so doing the reader will benefit by attaching these conversations or publications to the related discourse from other fields on this very topic that has similar content but is known under other labels

Also keep in mind that plane English would be the kind of discussions stewardesses and pilots have with each other and with passengers, my guess is that there is a lot of winging it going on with it in this arena.

By the way, arena is one search term that will kill a searcher looking for sports facilities.  Consider this phrase and others like it: “in the arena of public opinion”.  One must always, when searching, think about
additional meanings of all words used as that will create noise in search results.  One also gets extra points for correct spelling as words incorrectly spelled in searches, we all do it, create potential havic with search results.

Combatting Obesity: After-School Programs
Promote Healthy Eating and Physical Activity

By Elaine Korry

A shorter URL for the above link:

Robert Hill knows firsthand what its like to be an overweight child. I grew up hating physical activity and only eating foods that tasted good to me, he said. With no one to guide him about healthy food choices, Hill became morbidly obese by the time he was a teenager. Like many overweight young people, he was shunned by his classmates and bullied.

.

Hill is now healthy and fit, having had gastric bypass surgery when he was 19. But his early experiences have stayed with him, informing the way he works to prevent childhood obesity today. In his current job as the director of youth wellness programs at the YMCA of South Florida, Hill incorporates exercise and good nutrition standards into after-school and summer programs.

.

There was a girl, 8 years old, named Marie. She was obese and had just been diagnosed as pre-diabetic, recalled Hill. Maries mother was desperate for solutions, so Hill helped her enrolled in an exercise and nutrition program called YFit. Weight is never measured in Hills programs, but Maries mother reported that her daughter quickly made progress. She lost two pounds in a week, just getting the recommended 60 minutes of physical activity every day, said Hill.

Standards for healthy eating and physical activity in OST

.

In 2011, the National AfterSchool Association adopted standards for healthy eating and physical activity (HEPA) in out-of-school time.

.

Far from simply outlawing candy or soda, the standards comprise a comprehensive approach to instilling lifelong healthy habits by addressing everything from staff modeling and curriculum to social supports. Among the best practices outlined in the guidelines:

.

Programs will not serve fried, sweetened or salty foods, or those containing trans fat; no posters or advertisements promoting unhealthy foods are allowed.

.

Food is not used as a reward or a punishment; holiday and birthday celebrations do not include unhealthy foods.

.

Staff are trained in good nutrition; they eat the daily program snack or meal with the children and discuss the benefits of healthy food choices.
Parents are educated about healthy eating and receive guidelines about good food choices their kids may bring to the program; they are encouraged to support healthy eating habits at home.

.

Programs do not allow access to movies or television, and limit digital devices to those used for homework, used less than one hour per day.

.

Programs spend at least 20 percent of their time (typically 30 to 60 minutes) in moderate to vigorous physical activity, outdoors whenever possible, including aerobic, bone- and muscle-strengthening exercises.
Californias national model

.

Now, in an effort that could become a legislative model, California has launched a recognition program called DASH (Distinguished After School Health) to encourage the states 4,400 publicly funded OST programs to voluntarily adopt HEPA standards. Applications have been reviewed by the California Department of Education (CDE), and certifications will be issued this summer.

.

More than 200 schools applied for recognition, according to assistant communications director Robert Oakes. As far as CDE can determine, if this is not the first such program nationally, its certainly a pioneering effort, said Oakes.
