On November 22, 2005, Microsoft released its new generation Xbox 360 in North America. The Xbox is a popular videogame system that competes directly with Sony’s PlayStation and Nintendo’s forthcoming Revolution. See Exhibit 1 for an illustration of the Xbox 360 and a list of features announced in Microsoft’s press release. On November 22, the day of the Xbox 360 release, iSuppli of El Segundo, California announced its tear-down analysis of a production unit. The company described its tear-down analysis as ‘applied market intelligence’ primarily targeted for use by analysts in assessing the economics of the Xbox for Microsoft, its suppliers and competitors.1 iSuppli’s analysis revealed that parts alone totaled $525 for the Xbox 360, which retailed for $399 (Exhibit 2).2 “Microsoft spokesperson Molly O'Donnell said the company does not comment or provide guidance on Xbox 360 cost information. Shares of Microsoft were down $0.23 to $27.69 in recent trading.” (RedHerring.com, November 25, 2005) The first commercial videogame system3 The concept of the modern home videogame is attributed to Ralph Baer, a 29-year old TV engineer, who worked at Loral, a TV manufacturing company, in 1951. Ralph wanted customers to be able to play games on their TV, but his boss rejected the idea. Fifteen years later in 1966, Ralph Baer was still working on his thwarted TV game idea and designed a series of prototypes. A prototype built in 1968 played ball & paddle and target shooting games. After several demonstrations to TV manufacturers, Magnavox signed an agreement with Baer’s company in 1971 and released the first commercial home videogame system – the ‘Odyssey’ – in May 1972. The game console retailed for $100 and was only distributed through Magnavox dealers. Each of the 12 games required its’ own circuit board.

Similar reports were available from iSuppli for other well-known consumer electronics devices including Apple’s video-capable iPod and iPod nano. 2 Merrill Lynch released a similar analysis on November 2, 2005 that was not based on a tear-down of an actual unit. 3 This section draws heavily on the history of the videogame, which is told in various versions at http://www.pong-story.com/intro.htm, http://www.emuunlim.com/doteaters/ and http://www.gamespot.com/.

One evening I felt pressure in my chest and tingling down both arms. I just didn’t think I could be having a heart attack. I didn’t expect it to happen to me. The next morning, I still had a strange sensation in my chest. I called the doctor and was sent to the hospital. Considering how many first heart attacks are fatal, I was lucky to be alive the following morning to seek medical help. ” Ann Steigler’s Story M ore than 1 million people in the United States have heart attacks each year. Many of them don’t act quickly enough to make it to the hospital on time for help. When a heart attack happens, delay in treatment can be deadly. Learn the warning symptoms of a heart attack, and know the single most important thing you can do to save a life: call 9–1–1 immediately for emergency medical care. What Is a Heart Attack and Who Is At Risk? A heart attack happens when blood flow to the heart suddenly becomes blocked and the heart can’t get oxygen. If not treated quickly, the heart muscle fails to pump and begins to die. Heart attacks most often occur as a result of coronary heart disease (CHD), also called coronary artery disease. Certain risk factors make it more likely that you will develop CHD and Of the people who die from heart attacks, about half die within an hour of their first symptoms and before they reach the hospital. have a heart attack. Major risk factors for a heart attack that you can control include smoking, overweight and obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, an unhealthy diet, and lack of physical activity. Risk factors that you can’t control include a family history of early heart disease and increasing age. Talk to your health care provider to find out whether you are at risk for a heart attack. 1 Know the Symptoms of a Heart Attack Many people aren’t sure what’s wrong when they are having symptoms of a heart attack.

It also can feel like heartburn or indigestion. ◆◆ Upper body discomfort. You may feel pain or discomfort in one or both arms, the back, shoulders, neck, jaw, or upper part of the stomach (above the belly button)....
B y J o h n K i l l i n g e r After thousands of pages of Harry Potter’s story, it is clear now that this has been J. K. Rowling’s theme from the beginning: love, friendship, sacrifice, and eventually life. For it is life that springs out of Harry’s gift of himself: the life of self-sacrifice, the life that defeats death, the life of ongoing friendship. F riends. Amigos. Chums. Companions. Mates. Buddies. Jesus did not say lightly to his disciples at the Last Supper, “No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends…. I do not call you servants any longer…but I have called you friends” (John 15:13, 15). Scholars think they were celebrating a Jewish friendship meal, one in which men pledged their love and fidelity to one another regardless of what might befall them. In view of what was about to happen, Jesus’ words were extraordinarily charged with meaning and emotion. J. K. Rowling, author of the popular Harry Potter novels, may have had that scene in mind when she began her seventh and final novel of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, for she set at its beginning an epigram from William Penn, founder of the Quakers: “This is the comfort of friends, that though they may be said to die, yet their friendship and society are, in the best sense, ever present, because immortal.”1 Then she wrote a story that in many ways parallels the death and resurrection of Jesus. I had suspected from the first novel that Harry was actually a Christfigure. He was marked in an early encounter with the evil Lord Voldemort by a lightning-shaped scar on his forehead, and the name for God vouchsafed to Moses, I Am Who I Am, is believed by some to have been derived 60 Friendship from a primitive description of a lightning bolt. Harry’s arrival at his Muggle (that is, nonwizarding) relatives’ home was marked by strange phenomena in the natural world, like those that accompanied the birth of Jesus. Dumbledore and Professor McGonagall, who oversaw his arrival, looked suspiciously like God the Father and Sophia, his female counterpart. At Hogwarts, the wizarding school, Harry fell in with a coterie of very special close friends—Hermione Granger, Ron Weasley, and Neville Longbottom— If there was any doubt about Harry’s being who often remind us of Jesus’ inner circle of discicreated in the image of Christ, it is surely ples, Peter, James, and John. (Ron is the stubborn, blusdispelled in The Deathly Hallows volume, where tering Peter!) I suggested, therefore, he is repeatedly called “the Chosen One.” in a book called God, the Devil, and Harry Potter, written after the fourth novel had appeared, that Harry would eventually die like Christ.2 And indeed, in the final novel, he does. He dies voluntarily, as Christ did, literally presenting himself to Voldemort for execution. And then, as Christ did, he returns from death, this time to deal a mortal blow to the prince of darkness himself. If there was any doubt about Harry’s being created in the image of Christ, it is surely ...

Sebagaimana diketahui bersama bahwa berbagai bencana telah terjadi di Indonesia. Kondisi tersebut menuntut masyarakat untuk waspada dan siap ketika sewaktu-waktu bencana alam melanda. Minimnya pengetahuan masyarakat terhadap pengenalan tanda-tanda bencana alam dan upaya meminimalisir resiko yang dihadapi mendorong Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), Pemerintah setempat juga Lembaga Swadaya Masyarakat (LSM) untuk memberikan bekal pengetahuan terhadap bencana alam kepada masyarakat di daerah rawan bencana. Beberapa wilayah potensi bencana alam di Kabupaten Jember antara lain wilayah Kecamatan Panti dan Sukorambi, Silo berpotensi bencana banjir dan tanah longsor. Sebagai respon terhadap kajian pengelolaan bencana alam di Kabupaten Jember yang dilaksanakan oleh Tim JICA, maka Yayasan Pengabdi Masyarakat sebagai lembaga swadaya masyarakat non pemerintah ingin berperan dalam kegiatan tersebut. Yayasan Pengabdi Masyarakat sebagai lembaga layanan masyarakat, telah banyak melakukan kegiatan, antara lain pemberdayaan masyarakat dalam upaya pemberantasan buta aksara maupun pengentasan kemiskinan, pelatihan, survey, dan kegiatan sosial dan berperan dalam penanganan bencana alam di Kecamatan Panti.
