For me, the task of memorizing detail has always been a chore. Yet, it seems that much of the education we all receive involves a LOT of such activity. We take history classes, and memorize lots of names, dates, and places that have no meaning whatsoever to us, regurgitate them onto a test, and hope our score is above a 'C' when we complete the semester. Yet, there is absolutely NO meaning to the information, and it is quickly lost and "re-taught" to us, over and over, if only to re-inforce this "by rote" memorization technique in our minds.
None Although you may not want to admit it, your customers have probably at one time or another experienced some type of pain while doing business with your company.

Brain Teasers and answers Door Body and Knot A door, a body, and a knot can be this. <p>Double. Semantic Foundry » Design Ethnography & Mood Maps Over the last years I have noticed that many books and articles talk about the usefulness (or not) of personas, delving a little into the actual production and design of the persona as well as defending it’s usage. Very few explicitly define some of the activities that occur within the design research phase. It was Jared Spool that mentioned the real value of personas being the actual process of engaging with users and developing empathy towards their circumstances and experience interacting with a product.1 The following article grew out of a conversation with Nathan Curtis of Eight Shapes (author of “Modular Web Design“) when I offered to contribute what I called a “Mood Map” to the Unify Documentation System. Let’s start.
15 of the Best Landing Page Design Examples You Need to See Putting together an A+ landing page can be tricky. There are so many elements that a top-notch landing page needs, and making those elements the "best" they can be often depends on what your landing page goals are. Take form length, for example. It's just one of the many components you need to optimize, but best practices will tell you that both short and long forms perform well -- it all depends on whether you want to generate a lot of (potentially) lower quality form submissions, or a smaller number of higher quality submissions.

Visualization Types - Introduction to Data Visualization This taxonomy is based on a data taxonomy from: Shneiderman, B. (1996). The eyes have it: A task by data type taxonomy for information visualizations. Proceedings of IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages - Boulder, CO (pp. 336-343). The taxonomy is heavily weighted toward the more abstract information visualization techniques and is less representative of scientific visualizations, which can be highly specialized by domain and are more difficult to generalize. (A slightly different taxonomy with examples is available at Visual Analytics Digital Library - Visualization Types) Examples:
Why Volunteering Volunteers are the backbone of all social movements and they are one of the most powerful vehicles for change.

Small Arms Survey - Non-conflict Non-lethal Violence Disappearances Typically described as ‘enforced disappearances’, such acts constitute yet another facet of illegitimate armed violence. In certain cases, disappearance may include the eventual killing of the person who is abducted. In many cases, the victim’s family does not know whether the disappeared person is alive, which contributes to their anguish. Disappearances are also frequently linked to criminal violence, including social cleansing; executions; displacement; and, in certain circumstances, rape, sexual violence, and forced recruitment.
