BUSINESS REPORTS - The University of Sydney

Helpsheet BUSINESS REPORTS Organisations need accurate, timely, objective and concise information to make effective decisions. One way they can obtain such information is from a business report. This document can be defined as “an organised presentation of information to a specific audience for the purpose of helping an organisation achieve an objective” (Bowman & Branchaw, 1988, p. 12). While business reports share similar characteristics, they also need to be customised for their particular purpose. An informal report may be a brief summary while longer reports follow a more complex and formal structure. Informal reports may feature: letter or memo format minimal use of headings and visual aids personal pronouns and contractions a length from a few paragraphs up to five pages content primarily for internal audiences a more standard format organised into separate sections front and back matter (sections) along with the body of the report a greater number of headings (including subheadings) and visual aids third person pronouns and no contractions or slang a length from five pages to several hundred content designed for internal and/or external audiences 2. Why do I need to write a business report? Formal business reports often feature in university assessment tasks in disciplines such as accounting, management and marketing as writing such reports is an essential skill in business. These tasks may require giving information only (i.e. financial statements), information and interpretation (i.e. product surveys) or offering information, analysis and recommendations. A report that details the last type could highlight a problem and suggest a solution which might involve analysing a business’s history, operations, problems, competition and goals, followed by a number of possible solutions (including their advantages and disadvantages). Following this investigation, a specific solution might be recommended to aid future growth. Please note that business reports have some of the same features as research reports. For more information on the latter please see the helpsheets: Research Reports and Report Checklist. An accessible reader-centred style which includes standard formal English is a hallmark of academic writing including in essays or reports. However, there are some key differences between the two genres:...

“Congratulations You've Just Discovered A New Affiliate Tool That ...

Are YOU ready to rake in YOUR share of revenue from this $300 BILLION cash-pile looking for a home? “Congratulations You’ve Just Discovered A New Affiliate Tool That Rakes In Easy Affiliate Commissions From The Biggest and Best Affiliate Program In The World!” [arial font #990000] This is Anthony Aires and Paul Nagel longtime internet marketers and we’ve been generating easy affiliate commissions from Amazon with this new tool we’ve developed. The Amazon Associates Affiliate Program is the BIGGEST and BEST affiliate program in the world. When you drive traffic to Amazon it converts into easy affiliate commissions. As you can see Amazon is the best at converting traffic into sales, and getting that traffic to buy related products, which means higher commissions for you. They have the best data, the best technology, and the best systems to insure they squeeze every nickel out of every customer that visits Amazon. So the secret is getting traffic over to Amazon, because you know they’re gonna do their best to get the sale. The problem for most Amazon affiliates is they have simple pages with a product description, a couple reviews, a picture of the product and a “Buy Now” button. This practically begs your visitors to the hit the back button and leave your site…for good! What if you could get almost 100% of your visitors not only to click through and go straight to Amazon…BUT they do it with their wallets out and their fingers ready to push the famous Amazon orange “Add To Cart” button? OF COURSE ... it would be awesome, because it would mean easy affiliate commissions for you. If you’ve tried to have success with Amazon I’ll bet this sounds familiar. 1. You spend a ton of time finding then buying the right domain. 2. You spend a ton of time creating unique painstaking content. 3. You spend a ton of time finding and building quality high PR back links to your site. And you finally get your site to rank on the first page for a product, and you finally see some daily visitors… But when you check your stats on Amazon, only a fraction clicked through and almost no one buys anything. Here’s another common problem. You’re getting visitors and “some” are clicking through but you have to keep reinventing the wheel to keep your site fresh and engaging. Your site has no “stickiness” to it and once they leave, they are gone forever. It’s like being on an endless hamster wheel trying to keep people coming to your site so you can make a dollar or two a month. Or even worse, you are getting visitors after spending a ton of effort, time, and money only to realize you’ll never in a million years recover what you’ve invested. It’s like you have a big red arrow pointing right at the BACK button screaming “no value here…leave now!”...

Prepare for Windows 7 in Three Phases - Computerworld

Prepare for Windows 7 in Three Phases Gartner RAS Core Research Note G00170151, Stephen Kleynhans, 1 October 2009, RA2 07182010 Many organizations are skipping Vista and looking forward to Windows 7. This research provides the necessary steps to prepare for Windows 7 and ensure a successful migration with adequate operating system (OS) support. • Preparation is essential for a successful migration. Most organizations will require 12 to 18 months to prepare for a Windows 7 migration. • Organizations that have tested or prepared for Vista and have good management systems and processes could complete the preparation process in 12 months. • Allocate sufficient time and resources to upfront activities to lower the costs during migration. • Although your planned migration may be more than a year away, don’t delay the initiation of the preparation process. • Form a project committee that includes members from each major business unit, as well as operational groups in the IT organization, to oversee the development of a project timeline that features high-level milestones and estimates required resources. • Establish a formal, comprehensive and workable testing methodology to ensure that issues are identified and categorized. • Plan on piloting for a minimum of three months. The shorter the pilot, the more problems will occur during the deployment. More-complex environments will undoubtedly cause additional issues that will need to be addressed and added to hardware inventory is even more essential. The inventory will also the plan.

Interchange Activities 2012 Draft - Jan 18.cdr

Awareness Understanding Acceptance Participation Our formal education cannot be confined to facts and figures - it must extend to values. And, importantly, that we value the contribution that each of us can make, if allowed to live out our full potential. Simon McKeon Interchange Victoria Patron Interchange Activities is an initiative of Interchange Victoria to create greater awareness about disability and promote more inclusive communities. Interchange Victoria supports its member programs to provide family support and social opportunities for children and young people with a disability. To be part of a community that shares the responsibility for the wellbeing of all, celebrates and promotes difference and strives for inclusiveness. We want a community where all are treated with dignity and respect and have the opportunity to access and participate in activities of their own choice. Interchange supports and enhances all its members to deliver effective, high quality respite and related services to families of people with a disability. Integrity - We are open, honest and accountable in all our practices. Social Justice - We contribute to and work with the broader community to bring about positive changes for individuals and society. We recognise that a fair community means that all people have the right to opportunity and justice and can participate fully in their communities. Quality - We create the environment for the Board, Staff, Volunteers and Partners to excel in the provision of services with standards and systems that support and build on strengths of Interchange. Positive work environment - We value and promote a positive and safe work environment that supports diversity and values individual abilities and contribution. Sustainability - We will aim to maximize our enterprise opportunities and undertake responsible financial management. Until the concept of disability disappears and is replaced by a society that is structured to support everyone’s life relatedness and contribution until that day my life and opportunities and lives of every other person who carries the label ‘disabled’ depends on the goodwill of people in the human service system. Goodwill is no substitute for freedom. Shut Out: The Experience of People with Disabilities and their Families in Australia, 2009 About Interchange Activities Who can do Interchange Activities How best to run Interchange Activities Pre and Post Assessment Hearing Impairment Vision Impairment Intellectual Disability Physical Disability Autism Spectrum Disorders People with a disability want to live in a society where they are treated with respect, dignity and importantly with equality, and not as ‘poor things’ nor merely as recipients of services. Additionally they do not want to be segregated as ‘people with disabilities’. Shut Out: Many of us take for granted the things we are able to do. However everyday activities like catching public transport, working, learning a new skill or going to a local café may be challenging for a person with a disability not so much because of their disability, but because of the attitudes and barriers that make access and inclusion difficult. Most disabilities are acquired and so a disability may touch us or someone we care about at any time. Having an understanding of what disability might mean and appreciating the contribution people with a disability make to the community helps all of us to accept and appreciate diversity and adapt to change if and when it happens...

University of Delaware Disaster Research Center PRELIMINARY ...

University of Delaware Disaster Research Center PRELIMINARY PAPER DRAFT OF A SOCIOLOGICAL DISASTER RESEARCH AGENDA FOR THE FUTURE: THEORETICAL, METHODOLOGICAL AND EMPIRICAL ISSUES E. L. Quarantelli * An oral version of this paper was presented at the World Congress of Sociology in Germany in 1994. W e put together this version to meet the many requests for a written version of the oral remarks. It is not hlly referenced and is thus an unfinished paper, and should be treated as such. Systematic and extensive social science disaster research has been going o n for nearly five decades now. M u c h worthwhile work has been done. A very large number of empirical generalizations have been produced. Yet, I am troubled. In m y view, the field more and more, i producing less and less, ofwhat might be characterized as maior advances in n e w knowledge and understanding of disaster related phenomena. Certainly one would be hard pressed to point to the production of theories, models, explanatory schemes and/or master hypotheses about the phenomena that are notably different f o what have been around for some time. In fact and worst, both relatively and absolutely, littIe of the literature advances sxgk5.ttheories, models, explanatory schemes andor master hypotheses of any kind. A partially completed informal content analysis ofjournals that publish disaster research articles i the social sciences support this contention. W e think this is because present day studies, as a whole, are not that m u c h different from those undertaken these last forty five years. Ifso,what does that suggest? To us, a clear implication i that there i a great need to ask n e w and different research questions. W e need a radical shaking up of h o w w e ought t go about studying the social aspects of disasters. As has been said generally, major scientific advances require major rethinking, not just more studies. W e must think through what w e should do that i different in fundamental ways from what w e are doing. Now this paper only makes a few suggestions on issues that w e should address to get the field out of its current intellectual rut. In no way i a completely n e w research agenda for the future presented. However, w e do present examples of theoretical, methodological and empirical issues that i dealt with, would force research to be different in major ways than it is being presently conducted. W e make no claim that absolutely no one i doing any of the things w e suggest--thereare scholars here and there generally addressing some matters that w e discuss in this paper. In fact, some earlier presentations at this meeting of the Research Cimmittee on Disasters are in m y view going in the right direction, although I wl forego a this time any invidious indication of w h o the "right thinkers" are. However, the field as a whole i not going in the direction w e think would be most profitable for it. Our Intended Audience W e are not writing for everyone. There are two ways in which this paper is adirected at everyone interested in the disaster area. For one, our intended audience is primarily researchers. As I have written extensively elsewhere the goals and procedures of researchers and research users (i.e., practitioners) are distinctively different (Quarantelli, 1993b. Actually, a failure to understand this i currently subverting the basic research i the area. It i not that applied questions are meaningless. They are not. However, asking and even answering them can do very little to advance basic knowledge and understanding per se of disaster phenomena (for an example of very good observations by an operational official,see the appendices in Roberts, 1994). Practical concerns have never been the primary engines for scientific advances i any area"). So w h y should disaster studies be different? There i a need for good social engineering, but let us not conhse it with social science.In m y widely ignored Presidential address (1987) to the Research Committee o n Disasters at the VGorid Congress eighr years ago, i paraphrasing Eenjamin Franiciin, said w e needed more astronomers--or to change the metaphor--sociological researchers to study the skies, the stars, the galaxies and the universes of disasters, rather than more carpenters helping to build better lifeboats for floods, better buildings for earthquakes, or better shelters for radiation fallouts...

Housing Information 2011 - Washington, DC - Howard University ...

Howard University School of Law Class of 2014 HOUSING INFORMATION AND LIST∗ The D.C. metropolitan area offers all types of housing opportunities for students, whether you are looking to live in an upbeat urban area, or would prefer a more peaceful suburban atmosphere - you can find it here. However, housing in D.C. is more expensive than in most U.S. cities. Therefore, you must be proactive when it comes to locating affordable housing. Know that living alone can be very expensive and sharing living expenses with other people can help to keep your expenses lower. Finding housing in an area that is new to you can seem somewhat overwhelming. Rest assured that, with some planning and patience, you will find a place to live. We hope this information will be helpful as you begin your search. When searching for housing, consider all the expenses you will incur. These include, but are not limited to: security deposit, application fees, rent, parking, utilities and their connection fees, phone service, and transportation costs to and from the law school. Housing Types There are various types of housing options in the Washington, D.C. area for you to consider: • Apartments (Individual or Shared) • Apartment in a house. • Room in a shared group house. • Renting an entire house. The attached list is not comprehensive. You can access information about other housing opportunities with the use of local newspapers, other publications (i.e. Apartment Finder book), and internet services. Howard University School of Law Class of 2014 Questions to Ask Yourself before Renting General • What kind of rental do I want? • Do I want to live alone or with roommates? • Do I need long-term or short-term housing? • What amenities am I looking for (air-conditioning, washer/dryer)? • Am I willing to share a bathroom and/or bedroom with someone? Financial • How much rent can I honestly afford? 1 • Is the unit already furnished or will I need to buy furniture? • Is parking available? Is there an additional fee or permit required? • How much time and money am I willing to spend commuting? • Are utilities included in the rental price? Will I need my own phone line? Transportation • How close to campus would I like to be? • Is proximity to a grocery store, bank, post office, etc. a priority? • How close (and on what color line) is the nearest metro rail station or bus stop?2 • Does the bus and metro schedule work with my schedule? • Is there traffic during my commuting times? Landlord/Management • Does the landlord have references from past tenants that I may check? • Will we have a formal lease agreement? Consider writing necessary repairs into the lease. • Do I have special needs of which the landlord is aware? (Physically disabled, English as a second language, unfamiliar with the metropolitan area). Safety Have I inspected the unit thoroughly? What about fire safety? (A smoke detector is required by law). Consider purchasing renter’s insurance to protect your belongings. Will I feel safer with locks on my windows and doors? Will the landlord allow this? Keep in mind that the Cost of Attendance budget is calculated for 9 months...
