Drummond hace nueva oferta a trabajadores
El Viceministro de Relaciones Laborales convocó a los tres sindicatos de la empresa, pero Sintramienergética, el mayoritario, se negó a asistir.
Luego de 14 días de haberse declarado la huelga en la minera Drummond y tras varios días sin conversaciones entre las directivas y los sindicatos, la segunda productora de carbón del país presentó a los tres sindicatos una nueva oferta para llegar a un arreglo laboral.
Luego de una convocatoria realizada por el viceministro de Relaciones Laborales, José Noé Ríos, a los sindicatos Sintramienergética, Sintradrummond y Agretritrenes, los negociadores presentaron en Santa Marta una nueva oferta que incluye un bono de firma de 8,5 millones de pesos, así como un aumento salarial del 5 por ciento para el primer año, y del IPC más 1,5 por ciento para el segundo y tercer año.
Frente a la última oferta hay aumentos, ya que la minera planteaba un bono de 7,5 millones de pesos por la firma de la convención, más un aumento de 4,75 por ciento para el primer año, y un reajuste del IPC más el 1,25 por ciento para el segundo año, y otro del IPC más el 1,5 por ciento para el tercer año.
Según se conoció, a último momento Sintramienergética declinó asistir a la reunión, argumentando que las directivas de la minera debían realizar una reunión por separado, a lo cual la empresa no accedió, aunque remitió la propuesta por intermedio de Ríos.
Aunque para Sintramienergética un elemento clave es que se cambie el pago por horas por una remuneración diaria, la nueva propuesta de la empresa no accede a esta petición. Se pudo establecer, además, que la razón de la negativa radica en que este sindicato busca que independientemente de las horas trabajadas, los empleados reciban de forma fija las bonificaciones por horas extras y recargos nocturnos, así no los…...

Ddt and Its Affects on Peregrine Falcons

...Brian Jones Melanie Raite Biology 1103 November 3, 2012 DDT and Its Effects on Peregrine Falcons The Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus), or Duck Hawk, is a medium-sized raptor weighing 2 to 2 ½ pounds. These remarkable birds of prey measure 15-21 inches and have a wingspan of about 3 ½ feet. Their name, Peregrine, comes from the Latin word peregrinus, which means “to wander”. The name fits, given that they have one of the longest migrations in North America and are found on every continent besides Antarctica. Peregrine Falcons hunt pigeons, crows, waterfowl, starlings, jays, and other small to medium sized birds. They are also known to hunt for bats and other small mammals (Defenders of Wildlife). They are best known for their spectacular hunting methods in which they catch their prey mid-air. If that is not impressive enough, they do it while plunging at speeds of up to 200 miles per hour, killing or stunning its prey instantly (National Geographic). What is even more impressive than any of this is the fact that the Peregrine Falcon was on the verge of extinction and has made a remarkable comeback. The cause of their brush with extinction was the result of the use of organochlorine pesticides, mainly dichloro-diphenyl-trichloroethane (DDT) (The Santa Cruz Predatory Bird Research Group). DDT was first synthesized in 1874. However, its effectiveness as an insecticide was not discovered until 1939. This discovery was made by Dr. Paul Herman Müller of Switzerland.......

...SAS also known as “Statistical Analysis System” institute was founded in 1976. It all started at North Carolina State University (NCSU) as a project to analyze agricultural research, but the need for statistical analysis skyrocketed and thus SAS was founded. Two NCSU faculty members headed the project, Jim Goodnight and Jim Barr each one playing a major role in the development of SAS. With the help of Jane Helwig, a documentation writer, and John Sall, a computer programmer, the SAS core team was formed. These four people are given credit for co-founding the company. The company had their first user conference in 1976 to determine if the company could stand independently. They had more than 300 people attend this conference. With their customer clientele already growing and reaching nearly 100, they were sure that this company could be a success. Late in 1976, the co-founders left NCSU and formed the company in an office building across from the University. In 1976, they had small rooms filled with computers lined wall to wall. Base SAS, the first program created by the company, was stored on a punch card consisting of 300,000 lines of code. By 1977, SAS was awarded the first outstanding software recognition award and was placed on the Data pro Software honor roll. By 1978, SAS had 21 employees and over 600 customer sites. In 1976, SAS’s main concern was the customer; therefore, they issued a survey called the SASware Ballot, which still exists today. With this ballot......

Sas 112

...MEMORANDUM TO: Accounting Staff FROM: Junior Accountant DATE: September 23, 2013 SUBJECT: Replacement of SAS 112 with SAS 115 The American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) Statement on Auditing Standards (SAS) Number 115 supersedes SAS Number 112. Going forward, auditors are to use rule SAS 115 when performing internal control audits. The rules have some similarities. However, the key differences in the rules are the definitions for control deficiency, significant deficiency, and material weaknesses. The change in rules also creates more opportunities for accounting firms to offer services. Similarities between SAS 112 and SAS 115: Similarities exist between SAS 115 and SAS 112. The rules require auditors to look at deficiencies found during an audit. The auditor must continue to identify the deficiencies found as significant deficiencies or material weaknesses.1 SAS 112 and SAS 115 require auditors to determine if internal controls can prevent and detect errors. Management receives written communication of the findings, as before. Both rules require management to become more aware of the weaknesses in the organizational internal controls. The differences in rules SAS 112 and SAS 115 are as significant as the similarities. Differences between SAS 112 and SAS 115: The differences between SAS 112 and SAS 115 are subtle but important. The major difference between the two rules is the definition of control deficiency, significant deficiency, and material......

Sas Airlines

...conclusions, we collected and evaluated 1,283 observations across 30 airlines, over a 12-year period beginning in 2000. We used this information to analyze the effects of a variety of independent variables on our dependent variable of revenue (both domestic and international). The independent variables we examined included number of flights, baggage fee revenue, fuel costs, amount of fuel consumption, and the dollar amount spent on advertising. These variables were divided into both domestic and international amounts. To complement our findings and evaluate data on a more disaggregated level, we separated the airlines into major and minor airlines. We placed all of the data we collected into Excel and then imputed all of the Excel information into SAS in order to run our analysis. II. Description of Variables All of the variables we analyzed, except for advertising spending, were found utilizing the RITA database provided by the Department of Transportation. Advertising spending data for airlines was found via Ad$pender. Ad$pender and RITA are both discussed further in Section III. Each variable was broken down to a per quarter basis. Independent Variables: * Domestic Flights- The number of domestic flights that the airline had from 2000-2011 * International Flights- The number of international flights that the airline had from 2000-2011 * Domestic Fuel Consumption- The amount of fuel consumed in gallons domestically from 2000-2011 * International Fuel......

The SAS 112 and SAS 115 enforce changes to the auditing process for private companies, governments and non-profit organizations. These changes bring the audit process in line with current processes already in place for publicly held companies. The changes went into effect for audits of financial statements ending on or after December 15, 2006 and December 15, 2009 respectively. The significant changes apply to the definitions of internal control deficiencies, significant deficiencies and material weaknesses. The SAS 112 defines internal control deficiencies as “a design or operation of a control that does not allow management or employees to prevent or detect misstatements on a timely basis” (American Institute of CPAs, 2006). The SAS 115 further defines internal control deficiencies by adding the word correct to the definition. Under the SAS 112, auditors are required to note whether or not the internal controls could detect and prevent errors. ......

The Maltese Falcon-the Roles of Gender

...The Manly Man Versus The Femme Fatale Many of the characters in The Maltese Falcon attempt to gain leverage over one another in order to achieve their goals. While the men in novel use classic male intimidation and bullying characteristics, the female characters tend to rely on more subtle womanly approaches. The women in the novel obtain what they want by using their dainty innocence and their sexuality, also known as their “feminine charm,” to seduce the male characters into cooperating with them. Both the men and the women in the novel resort to the traditional gender-based methods of influence to get what they want. The female characters in the novel are able to utilize their femininity and sexuality to influence Sam Spade and the other male characters. An example of this technique is the complex relationship between Spade and Brigid O’Shaughnessy. After Joel Cairo offers Spade five thousand dollars for the recovery of the missing falcon, Ms. O’Shaughnessy attempts to regain Spade’s loyalty with payment as well but is unable to match Cairo’s offer: “It is far more than I could ever offer you, if I must bid for your loyalty.” After Ms. O’Shaughnessy accepts that she cannot use money to reclaim Spade, she instead tries to convince him with her sex appeal: “Can I buy you with my body?” This method is proven to be effective after Spade replies that he will “think it over” (57). Ms. O’Shaughnessy’s approach in this passage clearly expresses how women in the novel...

...Sa-Sa has several methods to segment their customers. The primary method is to classify customers as tourists or residents. Customers can fall into a third category of Mainland residents after the join-venture with Ebeca. With no tariffs on beauty products in Hong Kong, tourists are a major customer base for the perfume and cosmetics industry. The largest chunk of tourists come from mainland China, followed by Taiwan and then by South East Asia. The customers prefer imported products from Europe, USA and Japan as the products reflect quality and prestige. The customers can then be further profiled by their demographics and buying behavior. The three customer segments are Real Spenders, Best Overall Value Seekers, and Convenience seekers. The real spenders are in their 20s and 30s and are high-income earning professionals, managers or business owners. They spend the highest on skincare products, cosmetics, and fragrances/health supplements. They don’t spend as much on hair care products as they might be going to professional stylists and getting their products from the salon. This segment has the highest number of purchases at Sa-Sa. They might be ones more likely to buy the in-house products leading to greater profit margins for Sa-Sa. One way Sa-Sa can compete is to sell more luxury products to the real spender segment and generate higher profits. Convenience seekers are usually above 40 years of age and include housewives, blue-collar and part-time workers. They have......

Sas 99

...SAS 99 AND ITS CHALLENGES TO THE ACCOUNTING PROFESSION Submitted by: Ronneil I. Capones Consideration of Fraud in a Financial Statement Audit, also known as Statement on Auditing Standard 99 was issued in November 2002. It is a revision to improve the deficiencies of SAS 82 with regards to audit process and quality (Marczewski and Akers, 2005, p. 38). The revision of SAS 82 was started prior to the huge accounting scandals that shook public confidence in the reliability of audits. Nevertheless, it gave the accounting profession more focus on tackling the issues of fraud detection on audits Three key fraud risk factors are classified and described in SAS 99; incentive/pressure to perpetrate fraud, opportunity to carry out the fraud, and attitude/ability to rationalize the fraudulent action. Incentives or pressure to perpetrate fraud may arise from the threat of losing profitability as a result of failures in the industry, declining product demand, frequent negative cash flows from operations, threat of losing job because of pressure from management to meet analysts’ expectations are a few examples (Casabona and Grego, 2003, p. 17). Opportunities to carry out fraud are characterized by the following conditions; abundance of transactions with related parties not within the normal course of business, unusual complex transactions coupled with subjective judgments, ineffective monitoring by management, board of directors, and audit committee (Casabona and Grego, 2003, p.17)...

Procedure in Sas

...SAS Global Forum 2008 Reporting and Information Visualization Paper 264-2008 PROC TABULATE® and the Neat Things You Can Do With It Wendi L. Wright, CTB / McGraw-Hill, Harrisburg, PA ABSTRACT This paper starts with an introduction to PROC TABULATE®. It looks at the basic syntax, and then builds on this syntax by using examples on how to produce one-, two-, and three-dimensional tables using the TABLE statement. Some of the examples cover how to choose statistics for the table, labeling variables and statistics, how to add totals and subtotals, working with percents and missing data, and how to clean up the table. The presentation then shows several examples using the ODS STYLE= option in PROC TABULATE to customize tables and improve their attractiveness. This option is versatile and, depending on where the option is used, has the ability to justify cells or row and column headings, change colors for both the foreground and background of the table, modify borders, add a flyover text box in ODS HTML, or add GIF figures to the row or column headings. INTRODUCTION PROC TABULATE is a procedure that displays descriptive statistics in tabular format. It computes many statistics that other procedures compute, such as MEANS, FREQ, and REPORT and displays these statistics in a table format. TABULATE will produce tables in up to three dimensions and allows, within each dimension, multiple variables to be reported one after another hierarchically. There are also some very nice......

............................ 11 9. Appendix ........................................................................................................................................... 13 3 1. Introduction Scandinavian Airlines (SAS AB) is a state owned airline company, mainly active in Scandinavia, but also globally. It strives to make life easier for Scandinavia's frequent flyers enabling them to be part of a community experiencing easy, joyful and reliable services which are delivered the Scandinavian way (SAS-Group; About SAS, 2014) SAS has been faced with critical challenges during the past years, the present times and still needs to handle them to stay profitable and competitive. During the previous years, SAS had problems to generate profit which led to cost cuts and a radical restructuring of the company (Breaking Travel News, 2012). The current situation of SAS shows that the actual strategy as well as the general operations are not meeting the criteria to become an established profitable company on the airline market. In order to reach their goals and to keep up with the changing environment within the market, change is required. 2. Conceptual overview This paper generally focuses on the strategy, the difficulties SAS faces and plausible strategic recommendations. In the methodology the applied methods are described and questions such as “Who are we?” and “Who should we be?” will be answered in the findings. The findings continue with the......

...SAS * Employment security The company culture and working environment lend itself to a warm friendly place to work. Along with this the corporate strategy of making software that customers want ensures that new products are in line with consumer needs. These things create a very stable work environment where people enjoy coming to work. SAS experiences only a 4% turnover rate a year far lower than the industry average due to the work environment they create. This atmosphere allows for a great deal of security and makes employees enjoy coming to work and as a result their work is higher quality. * Selective hiring The hiring practices at SAS are a major reason for its success. SAS goes about recruiting people based a great deal on how they fit within the corporate culture. Due to the fact that the company headquarters is located in the south much of the recruiting is targeted at people who want to live in the south. Along with this the turnover rate for the company is extremely low because the employees like working for the company. This selection process allows SAS to get skilled employees that enjoy their work environment and don’t want to work somewhere else. * Self managed teams When it comes to management strategy SAS has a simplistic approach built on trust and responsibility. The company follows a motto of “give people the tools they need to do their job and get out of the way.”The training of employees allows the company to mentor and coach employees......

The Falcon Computer

...14. A small group of managers at Falcon Computer met regularly on Wednesday mornings to develop a statement capturing what they considered to be the “Falcon culture” Their discussions were wide -ranging, covering what they thought their firm’s culture was, what it should be, and how to create it. They were probably influenced by other firms in their environment, since they were located in the Silicon Valley area of California. Falcon Computer was a new firm, having been created just eight months earlier. Since the corporation was still in the start-up phase, managers decided that it 2 6752 would be timely to create and instill the type of culture they thought would be most appropriate for their organization. After several weeks of brainstorming, writing, debating, and rewriting, the management group eventually produced a document called “Falcon Values” which described the culture of the company as they saw it. The organisational culture statement covered such topics as treatment of customers, relations among work colleagues, preferred style of social communication, the decision-making process, and the nature of the working environment. Peter Richards read over the Falcon values statements shortly after he was hired as a software trainer. After observing managerial and employee behaviours at Falcon for a few weeks, he was struck by the wide discrepancy between......

...SAS Global Forum 2009 Pharma, Life Sciences and Healthcare Paper 174-2009 Clinical Trial Reporting Using SAS/GRAPH® SG Procedures Susan Schwartz, SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC ABSTRACT Graphics are a powerful way to display clinical trial data. By their very nature, clinical trials generate a large amount of information, and a concise visual presentation of the results is essential. Information about the patient population, drug dosages, clinical responses, and adverse events must be clear. Clinical laboratory results need to be presented within the context of acceptable limits, and subtle changes over time must be highlighted. This presentation will show, by example, how such graphs can easily be created using the SAS/GRAPH® SG procedures. The techniques that will be emphasized in this presentation include: • • • • • • Creation of a dose response plot by overlaying multiple plots in one graph Construction of a hematology panel using treatment regimen and visit numbers as the classification variables Presentation of a matrix of liver function tests (LFTs) for at-risk patients Aggregation of data into on-the-fly classification variables using user-defined formats Getting the axis you want using built-in best fit algorithms Generation of publication-ready graphs in color and in black and white INTRODUCTION The new SAS/GRAPH procedures—SGPLOT, SGPANEL, and SGSCATTER—provide new tools for viewing and reporting data collected during clinical trials.

...How to Analyze Financial Statements FALCON MANUFACTURING COMPANY (Suggested Analysis) Liquidity Ratios : 2006 2007 Current Ratio 1.5 2.33 Quick Ratio 0.88 1.42 Liquidity ratios measure the ability of the firm to meet its short term liabilities out of its current assets. • Current ratio has increased from 1.5 to 2.33 which indicates that the liquidity position has improved in 2007. • Quick ratio also shows an improvement in 2007 as compared to 2006. • From the balance sheet, it can be seen that investment in current assets in 2007 has increased by 75% from 2006 whereas liabilities increased only by 12.5%. This has obviously contributed to the improvement in the liquidity ratios. • It should also be observed that Cash has decreased from AED 900,000 in 2006 to only AED 50,000 in 2007. Similarly the majority of current assets are in the form of Accounts receivable, therefore it is important that the company collects its receivables quickly to maintain liquidity. Asset Utilization Ratios 2006 2007 A/R turnover 6.4 times 3 times Avg. collection period 57 days 120 days Inventory turnover 5.1 times 4.7 times The above ratios are a measure of how quickly the firm converts its current assets into cash. • Both the A/R turnover and Average collection period indicate an unfavourable trend.
