The Practice of Phantom Eviction

Having an unwanted guest in the home is never an easy thing and something no one likes to deal with, especially when that guest is a soul stuck between the living and the dead. Recognizing the presence of a spirit, ghost, or phantom, in the home is usually hard for us to do. However, when we do come to terms with the fact that there is indeed a phantom lurking about in our home, preying on our fears, having a simple field guide to direct us is a must have, and I have provided here just such an effective tool to use along the journey of evicting any disembodied nuisance from the home. During phase one, what we need to remember is that most phantoms will not try to harm us, so being afraid and rushing to take drastic measures against the phantom is not the best initial approach. Often times, this will only make the phantom angry and cause him to become more unruly in the home. To easily rid the home of this entity, try taking a calm and passive approach. Don’t simply ask the phantom to leave because that would be too abrupt. Create a civil relationship with the phantom by respecting it’s presence even if it is not welcomed. Start by cooking something delicious every evening in your home, as if entertaining Martha Stewart. Who doesn’t love the aroma of a good pork tenderloin seasoned with salt, garlic, and sage, cooking in the oven?! Most phantoms will get the hint that they are not invited to this tasty dinner and excuse themselves from the home. Being passive and calm includes ignoring the phantoms’ attempts to make contact with us, or to scare us. If ignoring the phantoms’ efforts does not work, why not try being scared of the wrong things. For instance, if the cabinet door swings open and pots and pans fly out, try to stay calm and then focus on something else in the room. Run over to the refrigerator and exclaim that…...

...nnnn ENG 101 10 September 333 How to Configure Windows Startup Computers are not meant for everyone, and the programs associated with them just seem to overcomplicate the whole process. Configuring Windows programming can be a mind boggling task that requires time and some basic computer knowledge. To successfully configure Windows, I am going to walk you through the process so that you can experience the most out of your computer. Connecting the Computer- Once the computer is put in the correct place, it can be connected together. First of all, connect the monitor to the PC. The monitor cable comes from the monitor and has a male plug on the end shaped like a trapezoid with two screws on either side. This is plugged into a trapezoid shaped port on the rear of the PC denoted by a small graphic of a screen. The screws are then turned to achieve a tight fit. Next to be plugged in is the keyboard. The keyboard cable has a pink semi-circle shaped male plug, which plugs into the pink port at the back of the computer, which has a small keyboard graphic next to it. The same goes for the mouse, except this has a green plug and port. The printer cable also has a male trapezoid shaped plug with screws on either side, but it is a lot longer than that of the monitor. It is similarly pushed into the corresponding trapezoid port with the......

...Process Essay Flan(Mexican dessert) Foods are important in every culture. Flan is a traditional Mexican dessert and there are many versions. This flan recipe is prized for it’s simplicity. If you’ve never made flan before, now is the time try this recipe. I’m going to talk how to make three different kinds of flans. Flans are really important for my culture and almost all Mexicans families eat flan for dessert. I’m going to explain how to make the caramel flan, the Authentic Mexican Flan, and the crème cheese flan. The first flan is the caramel is round and it looks just like jello. The taste you get in your mouth is like creamy pudding with the taste of a caramel in it. At the caramel flan you have to use one and a half cups of sugar, two tablespoons, three eggs, two large eggs, yolks, pinch salt. You put the oven in the oven, and let it bake for fifty to sixty minutes. It is much better if the oven you has a light n a see through, that way u can see the process. That would be a great gift for Mother’s day. The Authentic Mexican Flan taste is so different, the taste of it is similar to vanilla and creamy and the shape its round. The flan haves a good color is kind of yellow that makes it looks so good. You got to preheat the oven 323 degrees to make the flan.

...Creative Process Michael May PHL/458 June 5, 2013 John Smith Creative Process The creative process is one that people use every day, (Passive voice – suggest “People use the creative process every day, “) whether they realize it or not. The creative process includes four stages: searching for challenges, expressing the problem or issue, investigating the problem or issue, and then producing ideas (Ruggiero, V. R. (2009). (Repeated error – do not include author initials or first names with in-text citations – use “(Ruggiero, 2009)”. In personal experience, I have noticed that I used the creative process while trying to improve conditions at the various places in which I was (word tense – use “have been”) employed. A big thing at Gateway Cold Storage was that the pick path, or the way in which products were arranged on the warehouse floor was not conducive in creating a path that was conducive to generating speed and getting more items loaded in a more efficient manner. (some informal language, vague pronouns, missing commas, and passive voice – try “At Gateway Cold Storage, the pick path, or how products are arranged on the warehouse floor, was not conductive. A quicker and more efficient system for loading items was needed.”) Searching for challenges would be to (passive voice – try “involves”) going out and looking for ways to improve the way you live life. The book states that the first stage of the creative process represents the habit of searching for......

Phantom of the Opera

...named Raoul suddenly comes back to her life and eventually they get engaged. Christine’s “Angel of Music” turns out to be a mortal man whose face is horribly disfigured and who also has haunted the opera house as the “phantom”. He’s been living under the opera house in its cellars for years and is obsessively in love with Christine. He kidnaps Christine and Raoul must try to save her at the very bottom of the opera house. Raoul saves Christine and they live happily ever after. After Christine’s death years later, Raoul notices a red rose with a diamond ring on her grave that looks exactly like the ring the phantom gave to Christine (the phantom really did leave the ring and rose) meaning the phantom is still alive and will never ever stop loving Christine – even after she’s long gone. The Novel “Le Fantome de l’Opera” was somewhat easy to read. I also enjoyed the book 100%. I ‘am absolutely a huge “Phantom of the Opera” fan and forever will be. The plot is so romantic and mysterious to me. I did have to look up a few words, not so many though. The author Gaston Leroux definitely did have “Langan’s Four Steps to Good Writing”. The incident I was most affected by was when Christine chose Raoul over the phantom. I really think she should have stayed with the phantom. What I learned from reading the novel is that when it all comes down to the wire, people really just want to be loved for who they are. I would definitely read more novels by the author and recommend the novel to......

...PROCESS MANAGEMENT Companies begin the process of organizing operations by setting competitive priorities. That is they must determine which of the following eight priorities are to be emphasized as competitive advantages: 1. Low-cost operations 2. High performance design 3. Consistent quality 4. Fast delivery time 5. On-time delivery 6. Development speed 7. Product customization 8. Volume flexibility Although all eight are obviously desirable, it is usually not possible for an operation to perform significantly better than the competition in more than one or two. The five key decisions in process management are: I. Process Choice II. Vertical Integration III. Resource Flexibility IV. Customer Involvement V. Capital Intensity These decisions are critical to the success of any organization and must be based on determining the best was to support the competitive priorities of the enterprise. PROCESS CHOICE The first choice typically faced in process management is that of process choice. Manufacturing and service operations can be characterized as one of the following: 1. Project 2.

The Process

...The Process The American Citizenship process, also known as the naturalization process, it is an acquisition of citizen status through specialized legal processes. The process is an extremely complicated topic consisting of many rigid rules and regulations a certain individual most follow. Every year in the United States there are millions of people from foreign countries submitting immigration applications to the USA Immigration Services (a private organization devoted to help foreigners, US Visa holders, Green card holders). According to the U.S Immigration Lawyers website, Out of these, an estimated 700,000 people were granted citizenship in the fiscal year 2006 (October 2005 – September 2006). Becoming a United States citizen is a dream to many individuals, matter a fact to thousands of people around the world. Unfortunately, it is not possible for everyone who applies to receive a U.S citizenship. People cannot receive residency or citizenship just by moving or settling in the U.S. Many foreigners are required to apply for a B-1 (Business Visa) or a B-2 (Tourist Visa) before they can visit the United States. Professor of Law Bill Ong Hing at the University of California points out the process of obtaining either an immigrant or non-immigrant visa can be both time consuming and involve a substantial amount of fees. On the other hand, there are several ways to receive a green card (United States Permanent Resident Card). Every year few lucky individual are selected in a......

Gothic Elements in Frankenstein and Phantom of the Opera

...The dark, scary, and terrifying all contribute to the genre known as gothic literature. These elements can all be depicted in multiple ways however. Mysterious, supernatural beings and deeply felt emotions are the two that most directly apply to The Phantom of the Opera composed by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Frankenstein written by Mary Shelley. The Phantom of the Opera brings forth a love-crazed sociopath who strives to flourish his love with a lead soprano in an opera house. The Phantom inflicts terror and pain into “those who come between” (Webber) him and Christine, the soprano he cares for. The Phantom acts as an angel-like being, seeking to protect Christine and his opera house no matter the cost. He is an omniscient, mysterious character and throughout the play, little is revealed about his true identity. The Phantom’s deep emotional connection with Christine is also present throughout the play . and causes him to act in irrational ways The Phantom has a growing discontent with Christine due to her not loving him in “'the same way that he does to her. Throughout the play, The Phantom kills off the surrounding characters in order to draw himself closer to Christine, yet finally vanishes into thin air when he finally wins her love (Webber). Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein focuses on a dedicated scientist, Victor Frankenstein, who’s infatuation with creating new life lead to the creation of a repulsive creature.

Milo as a Hero in the Phantom Tollbooth

...There are six parts to both inner and outer journeys as a hero, and Milo from the Phantom Tollbooth goes through all of these steps in his journey to find who he is. This journey is an outer journey because he physically leaves home and goes to an unknown place. It’s also an inner journey because he mentally leaves not knowing who he is or what he’s doing with his life, but when he returns, he is grateful for his life and realizes where he went wrong previously. Therefore, Milo seems to be a hero. Taking both an inner and outer journey which qualifies as a hero journey seems to make him a hero, but there are other reasons that are shown in the story that make him a hero. In the Phantom Tollbooth, Milo takes both an outer and an inner journey in the story, and there are qualities in the story that make him a hero. Before Milo leaves his home, he doesn’t know exactly what he’s doing with his life. If he’s one place, he wants to be somewhere else, or if he’s doing one thing he always wants to do another thing. When he finds an automobile and a tollbooth at his home, he sets it up because he has never had much adventure in his life. Therefore, he completes the first step of an outer journey: leaving home. Once he leaves home, he arrives at two towns— Digitopolis and Dictionopolis. He meets many confusing people on his way along his journey, and receives help from most of them, which completes step two of an outer journey. In this sense, he is travelling from known to unknown,......

Bottlenecks in a Process

...Bottlenecks in a Process University of Phoenix Bottlenecks in a Process Making a decision on what to eat for breakfast is a constant battle for me every morning. Eating breakfast is very important to me personally because it affects my mood for the rest of the day. Deciding on what to each morning is a routine, from the time the alarm goes off to taking a shower, I have the same question is in my head: What do I eat for breakfast? Although eating breakfast is routine, I find that there is always a constraint or a bottleneck in the process. Behind every process there is always a limiting factor whether it’s trying to get to work on time or trying to complete a degree, there are always bottlenecks that set the speed of your progress. The Key to speeding up my breakfast process is to find the limiting factor and alleviate them as fast as possible. After paying a good amount of attention to my daily breakfast routine, I found that the main bottleneck in the process is my food options, what is available to eat in the house? I found that I spend majority of my time looking for what is available to eat. To alleviate this process, I used the Goldratt’s theory of constraints to overcome the process bottleneck. The First step is to: 1. Identify the system constraints: the constraint in my process is my food options and the availability of food in the house. 2. Decide how to exploit the system constraint: To develop the constraint of my breakfast process, I......

Due Process

...Due Process Crystal Groff Strayer University Professor Freeman Abstract We all wonder what the words life, liberty, and property derived from. In this paper I will be explaining what due process is and how it relates to life, liberty, and property. I will also explain where due process came from and what 2 amendments relate to due process. Before we start though I would like you to know that due process is there to protect the defendant under proving guilty. Define due process and its origin? Due process refers to a set of established legal principles, derived from the Constitution, that seek to protect the rights if citizens. It is done to insure that the government treats all the individuals properly and does not abuse there power by acting against the citizens in an arbitrary, oppressive, or capricious manner (WiseGeek, 2003). The most important fundamental level, is that it prohibits the government from taking any action against the individual that would result in the loss of liberty or property, without first making sure the individual notice of pending action, and has the opportunity to be heard. In every case, before the final decision can be made, the government has to provide the individual, through judicial or administrative procedures that are fair to the individual and impractical, and the ability to challenge the state action. The more serve the case of deprivation of liberty, the more rigorous the due process procedures afforded must be......

Process Improvement

...three components: Planning, control, and improvement, and is referred to as the Juran Trilogy. It is based loosely on financial processes such as budgeting (planning), expense measurement (control), and cost reduction (improvement). Quality Planning: The structured process for designing products and services that meet new breakthrough, goals and ensure that customer needs are met. The processes are called Design for Six Sigma or Concurrent Engineering. This can be particularly challenging for a planning team, because customers are not always consistent with what they say they want. The challenge for quality planning is to identify the most important needs from all the needs expressed by the customer. The planning component begins with external customers. Once quality goals are established, marketing determines the external customers, and all organizational personnel determine the internal customer. Once the customers are determined, their needs are discovered by: Being a user of the product or service, * communicating with customers through product or service * satisfaction and dissatisfaction information, or * Simulation in the laboratory. The next step in the planning process is to develop product and/or service features that respond to customer needs, meet the needs of the organization and its suppliers, are competitive, and optimize the costs of all stakeholders. The step typically is performed by a multi-functional team. Quality......
