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.”

“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

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…”

His approach would revoke crucial climate protections and open up huge amounts of land to fossil fuel drilling.

.

On Thursday, Donald Trump spoke before an audience full of natural gas and energy industry leaders??and the message was exactly the same as his economic policy proposal from last week: fewer environmental regulations and more land available to fossil fuel companies.

.

We need an America-First energy plan, Trump said. This means opening federal lands for oil and gas production; opening offshore areas; and revoking policies that are imposing unnecessary restrictions on innovative new exploration technologies.

.

If elected president, Trump has pledged to revoke both the Clean Power Plan and President Obamas Climate Action Plan, the cornerstones of Obamas domestic climate agenda, and important signals to the international community of the United States commitment to climate action.

.

Trump has also promised to roll back the Waters of the United States Rule, which would extend drinking water protections for millions of Americans. Instead, he said that he would redirect the EPA to refocuson its core mission of ensuring clean air, and clean, safe drinking water for all Americans.

.

Trump does not seem to understand that regulations he so deeply wants to cut are crucial to preserving clean air, and clean, safe drinking water for all Americans.

A recent Harvard study found that the public health benefits of the Clean Power Plan are so robust that they outweigh the costs of the carbon standard in 13 out of 14 power sectors within five years of implementation. The same study estimated that the plan could save some 3,500 lives every year. Similarly, the Waters of the United States rule would protect the drinking water for a third of Americans that currently get their water from unprotected sources.

Beyond rolling back crucial protections, Trumps speech on Thursday showed that he does not intend to back down on his policy proposal that would open up vast regions of the United States to fossil fuel production. His desire to open both federal lands and offshore areas to drilling is the antithesis of the Keep It In the Ground movement, which has called for an end to new leases for fossil fuels on public lands??under a Trump presidency, not only would these leases continue, but leases would likely increase.

.

snip

.

Trumps speech comes on the same day that Oil Change International released a study illustrating that the potential emissions from the oil, gas, and coal in currently operating coal mines and oil fields is enough, if those mines and fields are operated through to the end of their projected lifetimes, to take the world well above 2 degrees Celsius of global warming. Several studies have already argued that for the world to remain below 2 degrees Celsius??the threshold agreed upon by more than 170 countries during the U.N. Conference on Climate Change last December??the majority of the worlds fossil fuel reserves need to remain untapped.

World’s Coffee Supply Threatened By Climate Change, Study Says

Theres been talk of climate change delivering a blow to the coffee industry, and a new report is shining light on the ways it is beginning to take a toll on the worlds java.

.

In a report compiling numerous studies of climate change and coffee, the Climate Institute provides strong evidence that rising temperatures and altered rainfall patterns are already affecting coffee crops. This means over the next few decades, coffee production will undergo some dramatic shifts.

.

Coffee plants thrive in stable environments, but once favorable countries, such as Colombia and Ethiopia, have started to become less suitable as global warming shifts their weather patterns.

.

Were fearful that by 2050 we might see as much as a 50 percent decline in productivity and production of coffee around  the world, which is not so good, Fairtrade Australia and New Zealand chief executive Molly Harries Olson told ABC News.

.

According to the report, Ethiopias average annual temperature rose by 34F between 1960 and 2006. Similarly, in Mexico, Guatemala and Honduras, mean temperatures have jumped by as much as 33F, and rainfall has declined by up to 15 percent since the mid-1990s. Even half a degree difference at the wrong time can alter the coffee yield, flavor and smell.

.

The changing climate is also opening the door for other problems, like coffee pests and diseases.

.

In 2012, following unusually high temperatures and high-altitude rains, Central America was hit by a wave of Coffee Leaf Rust (Hemileia vastatrix), researchers wrote in the report. The plant disease spread quickly through highlands, affected more than 50 percent of the crop, with some Guatemalan producers losing up to 85 percent of their crop. In Colombia, the fungus is being reported in mountainous regions previously too cool for it to survive.

Will Trumpism, Brexit, and Geopolitical Exceptionalism Sink the Planet?

The future pace of climate change will be determined as much by geopolitical factors as by technological developments in the energy sector, writes energy expert and author Michael T. Klare. While immense progress is being made in bringing down the price of wind and solar power, the political will to turn such developments into meaningful global change may be diminishing. Article courtesy of Tomdispatch.com.

.

In a year of record-setting heat on a blistered globe, with fast-warming oceans, fast-melting ice caps, and fast-rising sea levels, ratification of the December 2015 Paris climate summit agreement  already endorsed by most nations  should be a complete no-brainer.  That it isnt tells you a great deal about our world.  Global geopolitics and the possible rightward lurch of many countries (including a potential deal-breaking election in the United States that could put a climate denier in the White House) spell bad news for the fate of the Earth. Its worth exploring how this might come to be.

.

The delegates to that 2015 climate summit were in general accord about the science of climate change and the need to cap global warming at 1.5 to 2.0 degrees Celsius (or 2.6 to 3.5 degrees Fahrenheit) before a planetary catastrophe ensues.  They disagreed, however, about much else. Some key countries were in outright conflict with other states (Russia with Ukraine, for example) or deeply hostile to each other (as with India and Pakistan or the U.S. and Iran). In recognition of such tensions and schisms, the assembled countries crafted a final document that replaced legally binding commitments with the obligation of each signatory state to adopt its own unique plan, or nationally determined contribution (NDC), for curbing climate-altering greenhouse gas emissions.

.

As a result, the fate of the planet rests on the questionable willingness of each of those countries to abide by that obligation, however sour or bellicose its relations with other signatories may be.  As it happens, that part of the agreement has already been buffeted by geopolitical headwinds and is likely to face increasing turbulence in the years to come.

.

Diplomatic coup

.

That geopolitics will play a decisive role in determining the success or failure of the Paris Agreement has become self-evident in the short time since its promulgation. While some progress has been made toward its formal adoption  the agreement will enter into force only after no fewer than 55 countries, accounting for at least 55% of global greenhouse gas emissions, have ratified it  it has also encountered unexpected political hurdles, signaling trouble to come.

.

On the bright side, in a stunning diplomatic coup, President Obama persuaded Chinese President Xi Jinping to sign the accord with him during a recent meeting of the G-20 group of leading economies in Hangzhou. Together, the two countries are responsible for a striking 40% of global emissions.  Despite our differences on other issues, Obama noted during the signing ceremony, we hope our willingness to work together on this issue will inspire further ambition and further action around the world.

.

Brazil, the planets seventh largest emitter, just signed on as well, and a number of states, including Japan and New Zealand, have announced their intention to ratify the agreement soon.  Many others are expected to do so before the next major U.N. climate summit in Marrakesh, Morocco, this November.

.

snip

.

Keep in mind as well that Angela Merkel and Franis Hollande, the leaders of the other two anchors of the European Union, Germany and France, are both embattled by right-wing anti-immigrant parties likely to be similarly unfriendly to such an agreement.  And in what could be the deal-breaker of history, this same strain of thought, combining unbridled nationalism, climate denialism, fierce hostility to immigration, and unwavering support for domestic fossil fuel production, also animates Donald Trumps campaign for the American presidency.

.

In his first major speech on energy, delivered in May, Trump  who has called global warming a Chinese hoax  pledged to cancel the Paris climate agreement and scrap the various measures announced by President Obama to ensure U.S. compliance with its provisions. Echoing the views of his Brexit counterparts, he complained that this agreement gives foreign bureaucrats control over how much energy we use on our land, in our country. No way. He also vowed to revive construction of the Keystone XL pipeline (which would bring carbon-heavy Canadian tar sands oil to refineries on the U.S. Gulf Coast), to reverse any climate-friendly Obama administration acts, and to promote the coal industry.  Regulations that shut down hundreds of coal-fired power plants and block the construction of new ones  how stupid is that? he said, mockingly.

.

.

23 September 2016  Addressing the annual debate of world leaders at the United Nations General Assembly, leaders from Pacific Small Island Developing States underlined today the urgency of strong and committed action on the global pledges made for the planet and its people.

.

In his address, Prime Minister Tuilaepa Sailele Malielegaoi of Samoa underlined that the agreements and outcomes reached last year would be extremely important in address the challenges confronting the global society.

.

Noting, in particular, that the Paris Agreement on climate change and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development address issues that not only important, but also interconnected, they should be implemented in an inclusive approach to ensure that they will be addressed in totality.

.

Only then can one be able to say with some level of comfort that in the implementation of the new development agenda, no one will be left behind, the Prime Minister stressed.

.

He also recognized the role and leadership of UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon in making climate change a priority for the UN during his tenure and for his special focus on the Pacific small islands and hoped that his successor would continue his legacy.

.

The Samoan leader also called for reforms to the Secretary-General selection process to give the wider membership of the organization the chance to choose the leader of the global body.

.

Noting that the Pacific region has been witness to some of the most adverse impacts of climate change manifested through natural disasters, the Prime Minister said that it is particularly encouraging to see commitment and the will to translate the Paris Agreement into reality, he said that early entry into force of the Agreement should be everyones priority.

.

Prime Minister Malielegaoi also noted that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are not mere aspirations and that they are basic human needs that are achievable within our lifetime, and underscored the importance of partnership and collaboration of all to translate the aspirations into reality.

.

Similarly, Prime Minister of Tuvalu, Enele Sosene Sopoanga also said that the ratification of the Paris Agreement by a number of countries has given his country renewed trust and confidence in the work of the UN.
Applauding the strong leadership of the United States and other major green-house-gas emitting countries to ratify the Paris Agreement, he said We must [now] ensure that the Paris Agreement enters into force [and that] it must be fully elaborated and operationalized as early as possible on real adaptation and mitigation.

.

Underlining that Tuvalu like other Pacific islands is extremely vulnerable to the effects of climate change he expressed: We pray that through these great halls of the UN, our humble voice will be amplified by the conscience and goodwill of humanity for real urgent action.

.

He also said that because the SDGs are universal and apply to all countries, its implementation also requires a collaborative approach through durable and genuine partnerships amongst all countries, big and small.

.

Prime Minister Sopoanga also stressed the importance of responding to the plight of people affected by mass displacement and movements and to protect their rights, and added that long-lasting solutions to conflicts, such as those in Syria and other troubled spots in the world be found. He also called deplored the actions of the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea that have threatened peace and security in the Pacific Ocean region.

.

Noting that the UN can only be as effective as the sum of all national and regional actions put together, the Prime Minister said that Tuvalu, on its part, is fully committed to actions to meet the targets of the global development agenda.

The World Agreed to Tackle Climate Change, But What Comes Next?

Although countries reached agreement nearly one year ago, the agreement doesnt actually enter into force enough countries complete their own approval process. Earlier this month, both the U.S. and China approved the agreement, and as other countries follow, its likely that it will enter into force before the end of the year, once 55 countries, representing 55 per cent of global emissions, sign on. But once the agreement is approved, what happens next?

.

Optimists will tell you that the agreement is a turning point in the fight against climate change. From the U.S. and Germany to China and Senegal, countries came together and agreed that climate change was a threat and that action needs to be taken. That the details are imperfect is to be expected. And considering most of our own Congress is still denying the science behind climate change, the UN process adds some much-needed sanity!

.

This is partially true – the agreement is a major diplomatic achievement. There are some parts of the Paris Agreement that I agree with and fought for – including the very fact that it exists at all. The importance of limiting warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius, the inclusion of human rights, and the importance of helping communities adapt to hotter temperatures, shifting rainfall patterns and extreme weather.

.

But there are parts of the agreement that I strongly disagree with. The low levels of ambition, lack of a clear roadmap for how money will be made available to help people adapt to the changing climate and the promotion of false solutions to climate change that rely on large areas of land to grow food crops to be burned as fuel.

.

As with all major negotiations, you have to look at the whole deal and then consider whether its something you can support – and keep fighting for the things that are missing. But the problem is that climate change will not wait for us to figure all this out. The huge levels of greenhouse gases that we continue to pump into our atmosphere will result in warming that will have dire consequences, especially for the poorest and most vulnerable people.

.

To be clear, this isnt something we can just get right next time. Once this pollution is in our atmosphere, it will stay there for well over a hundred years. Trees, grasslands and other plants can help absorb these harmful emissions, but the amount of greenhouse gases they can store is limited, and any progress will be reversed if forest fires or other natural disasters cause these gases to be released.

.

Youll also hear people saying that technology will solve our problems. But much of these ideas like Carbon Sequestration and Storage or Bioenergy with Carbon Capture and Storage havent been proven to work at a large enough level. Plus, things like biofuels also require huge amount of land to grow the crops that we then burn as energy, which makes local food prices more unstable and means local people are being pushed off their land to make way for plantations that grow food for fuel.

.

All this means that the only way forward is to cut our harmful greenhouse gas emissions.

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.
