DESCRIBE THE FIELDWORK AND RESEARCH METHODS YOU USED TO COMPLETE A WEATHER DIARY OF METEROLOGICAL CONDITIONS. (15 MARKS)

Fieldwork are methods that you have collected information from yourself, its generally visiting a location a collecting the results yourself, whereas research is finding inforatmion from sources such as the library, internet or textbooks. This information is usually inforatmion that has already been published. In addition to this a weather is a collection of information, generally quantitative data, that gives a picture of weather pattern and conditions over the period of time you are looking at, they are generally classified as fieldwork. And finally meteorological conditions are the prevailing environmental conditions as they influence the prediction of weather.
Taking the temperature is a fieldwork technique used to complete a weather diary of meteorological conditions. The act of taking the temperature can be varied and if not done correctly can alter your results. For my weather diary I made sure I took the temperature at the same time every day as to get true, comparable results. To keep consistency in my results I also took the temperature using the same thermometer each time, and took the readings from the shade, rather than somewhere in direct sunlight, which could have given a fake result, as the temperature readings could have been higher as they were I the sun. this helped me complete my weather diary, as it allowed me to see the temperature of a number of weeks and use it as comparable data, in other areas of the weather diary, such as pressure and cloud cover.
Cloud cover and cloud types were another fieldwork technique used to complete my weather diary. By looking up into the sky, in the same place and the same time every day I was able to roughly give a result in oktars of how much cloud cover there was on a particular day. As…...

...Toy Story - analysis of the Jot case study Adrian Sims of BPP Professional Education provides some initial analysis of the pre-seen material for the TOPCIMA Part B – Case Study exams on February 28th and May 24th 2012. I’m writing this article in late December 2011 to help candidates prepare for the March and May 2012 T4 (TOPCIMA) exams based on the pre-seen material for Jot- toy case. Some previous T4 cases have lacked fun, but toys are fun. I’m sorry, but I decided to combine this article with quotes from the three Toy Story movies (Disney/Pixar). The Toy Story quotes are in italics, a bit contrived, and probably of no use for the exam. They made me smile and gave me (and you) an excuse to watch the Toy Story movies again. But my newspaper today rather kills the joyful mood. It has the headline ‘Sales boom may not save High Street big names: analysts predict failures within days’. It reports that the December sales boom has been insufficient and has left many stores with unsold stocks and unable to pay their outgoings. This has afflicted markets as diverse as camping equipment and lingerie. This brings us to the heart of the Jot pre-seen material. Jot makes toys and is part of an industry for which November and December sales are critical. It depends on retailers to sell its products, but retail in Europe is facing terrible times as a consequence of the recession caused by the sharp reductions in government spending and collapse of bank lending. It has a perilous cash flow...

Reserach Paper Proposal

...Bartel Williams Professor Johnson Eng 121-013 7 April 2014 Research Paper Proposal Center Title, Do Not Bold or Underline Question Posed: Throughout the book we hear Rose Mary’s complaint: “I’m a grown woman now, why can’t I do what I want to do” (Walls 58)? At what point can adults do whatever they want, if at all? When is it time to put other needs before your own? Why does Rose Mary behave this way? To answer this question I am going to attempt to diagnose Rose Mary with a mental illness, to justify her thinking and reasoning throughout the memoir. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, bipolar disorder is "a brain disorder that causes unusual shifts in mood, energy, activity levels, and the ability to carry out day-to-day tasks" Jeannette seems to understand that her mother is mentally ill, “"She'd be happy for days on end, announcing that she decided to think only positive thoughts" She goes on to say "But the positive thoughts would give way to negative thoughts...when that happened, Mom would refuse to get out of bed... she would lay wrapped up in blankets on the sofa bed, sobbing about how much she hated her life" (Walls 157). I also will study her artwork, and how she balanced art and motherhood. Was her artwork so important to put before her Children’s welfare? “A FEW DAYS AFTER Mom and Dad brought me home, I cooked myself some hot dogs. I was hungry, Mom was at work on a painting, and no one else was there to fix them for me (Walls 13)....

...I.Study Background A first class canteen which can be tagged as "a place cut above the rest" in the whole campus or even in the city or region was planned to be established in Holy Angel University and was altered as years went by. Holy Angel then established a café instead and HRM practicum students are said to run the facility and make it as their training grounds to practice theories learned from their course. Because of the feasibility studies about a shop inside a campus of some of the students done by two HRM groups, the plan was further strengthened. They named the establishment as Tasa which means cup and the other is Café Holyana for the school’s name and its students. The management did not adopt the ideas of the two groups instead, named it as Cafe Juan to honor the late Don Juan Nepomuceno who is the founder of the University.After months of preparation preceding the construction, procuring the needed equipment, making the menu (costing and pricing) relative to the bought equipment; and other things needed for the operation.

McNeeley, Ph.D. Susan O’Dea, sodea@chicagotube.com Phone: 815-834-8501 Phone: 815-834-8503 E-mail: dmcneeley@chicagotube.com Course Overview: Organizations have learned that the adage, grow or die is more than a cliché. In today’s global market, maintaining the status quo is no longer an option. As the velocity of change accelerates, historic paradigms are surrendering to new. For organizations to survive in today’s competitive environment, management must anticipate the strategic inflection of organizational evolution. Engineers have played a major role in the advancement of society. Undergraduate education for engineers is thorough, precise, and understandably micronistic. At the graduate level, we attempt to couple the micro skills with the broader macro perspective or, in other words, the proverbial big picture. The management role requires engineers to be able to envision, from a broader perspective, the operation of an organization and the market one serves. You must learn to think, act, speak, and process from the “management mind.” This capstone course draws from all functional areas of an enterprise to provide strategic direction to an organization. It also provides engineers with a management perspective as a complement to the engineering orientation, which they currently possess. Strategies are offered to......

...The Future of Same-Day Delivery: Same as the Past? Although home delivery of pizza has been successful in the United States, most other sameday delivery efforts have failed. The same-day delivery battle has again heated up with Amazon, Walmart, and eBay launching major efforts to implement same-day delivery. Amazon has a new game. Now that it has agreed to collect sales taxes, the company canlegally set up warehouses right inside some of the largest metropolitan areas in the nation. Why would it want to do that? Because Amazon’s new goal is to get stuff to you immediately—as soon as a few hours after you hit Buy. It’s hard to overstate how thoroughly this move will shake up the retail industry. Sameday delivery has long been the holy grail of Internet retailers, something that dozens of startups have tried and failed to accomplish. (Remember Kozmo.com?) But Amazon is investing billions to make next-day delivery standard, and same-day delivery an option for lots of customers. If it can pull that off, the company will permanently alter how we shop. To put it more bluntly: Physical retailers will be hosed. Walmart reacted to Amazon’s efforts by announcing tests for same-day delivery in a few cities. The big-box giant announced this week that it too would be offering same-day delivery, using its extensive network of superstores as distribution centers, and shipping products to consumers via UPS. According to a report in The Wall Street Journal, the service will......

...Student Sample B A study of current attitudes to GM food: Literature review Introduction Genetically modified (GM) food has been available since 1984 (Butcher, 2009). GM organisms are created through a biotechnological process which consists of altering traits of original crops by inserting the DNA of another organism (MacCracken et al, 2011). As with all innovations, these developments in biotechnology have led to numerous studies about whether the benefits outweigh the risks (Shah, 2002). In the case of GM, the uncertain benefits and unknown risks might influence public perception (Ronteltap et al., 2007). Therefore, the purpose of this paper is to evaluate a wide range of published studies on public attitudes towards GM food, including studies by the FSA (2003), Sheldon et al. (2009) and Bredhal (1999), in order to provide a basis for the following research. This paper will firstly analyse the importance of knowledge in shaping public attitudes. Secondly, different types of attitudes will be categorised. The final section will be devoted to the factors that shape different attitudes. The paper concludes with a discussion of the main themes; highlighting different issues mentioned and relating them to the current research. Public Knowledge of GM food It is widely recognised that the availability of information plays a key role in consumer choice and decisions. Additionally, knowledge has a significant impact on either consumers’ acceptance or rejection of GM......
