LONG FORMAL REPORTS

A typical structure of a long formal report might look like this, but bear in mind that you may modify and adapt the following components to virtually any type or length of report.

(A) Preliminaries

1 Title page

2 Letters of authorisation, transmittal and approval (terms of reference)

3 Table of contents

4 List of tables and figures (if appropriate)

5 Foreword/Preface

6 Acknowledgements

7 Synopsis (or abstract)

(B) Main report

1 Introduction

2 Findings and discussion

3 Conclusions

(C) Supplements

1 References and Bibliography

2 Appendices

3 Index (Key words with page references to where they occur in the text)

Preliminaries

The Title Page. The title page is the reader's first contact with the report and it is worth taking some trouble over its lay-out. It answers questions in the mind of someone who might be going through a pile of reports looking for a particular one and those questions would probably be:

What is it about? (Subject of the report)
Who wrote it? (Author(s))
For whom? (Name of person or group for whom it was prepared)
From where? (Full postal address of organisation on whose behalf it was written
When? (Date, including month, when report was completed)

The title should be centred in the middle of the page

Letters of authorisation, transmittal and approval.
These are normally only required for a very formal report being presented to or written within a public body, and may often be excluded from the report and presented separately. In business reports the authorisation and instructions are usually run together in summary form under a title such as "Terms of reference."

Table of contents. This is not only aids of reference, and makes possible selective reading by those who are interested in only parts of the report, but by bringing…...

...The French Revolution Before the French Revolution, France was ruled and governed by the king and parliament. King Louis XVI ruled by “divine right,” believing that he had been put on the throne by the grace of God. France then was one of the most powerful and wealthiest countries, and had a strong army, and even stronger cultural influence. Louis XVI and his wife Marie-Antoinette were shielded from the daily lives of the ordinary people in France. When Louis XVI inherited the throne in 1774, he also inherited many problems left behind by the previous king, King Louis XV. France was divided into three estates with their own status and role to play in the country. The First Estate involved religious people in the country. The Second Estate involved all the nobles. These two estates had many privileges, and were the wealthiest group, but were only a small piece of the entire population. The Third Estate was everyone else in the country: the peasants, poor city dwellers, and the “middle class”. The Third Estate was the largest group, and had little to no power, even though it was the largest group. In order to pay off national debts, Louis XVI increased taxes in the Third Estate, which impacted many of their lives. Because of the taxes, industry started to lag, and there were bread shortages in many places. They barely had any food and had to live of bread. King Louis XVI was a bad king and the people had every right to hate him and his wife. The people didn’t have......

...such as financial industries where sustainable financing and banking are the new catch-phrases. Delving into the green initiatives in Malaysia, we see the efforts and support that the government has put into realising the green concept in the country. Malaysia gazetted the Environmental Quality (Industrial Effluent) Regulations, Environmental Quality (Sewage) Regulations and Environmental Quality (Control of Pollution from solid waste transfer stations and Landfill) in 2009. Further to this, Malaysia pledged to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by up to 40% by 2020. The seriousness of the Malaysian government’s intentions towards climate change and the need for energy security and green technology, ultimately led to the establishment of the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water on 9 April 2009. The National Green Technology Policy is defined by four main pillars – energy, minimising energy consumption; environment, conserving and minimising environmental impact; economy, enhancing economic development through technology and social, a need to improve the quality of life for all. The policy basically intends to utilise energy efficiently in bid to enhance the economy while increasing the nation’s capability for green technology innovation and educating the public on green technology. The government has put much effort in ensuring the creation of a green community in the tenth, eleventh and twelfth Malaysia plans. In the current Malaysia plan there is much......

...was establishing arbitrary courts. He created Vice-admiralty courts that didn’t have a jury, which he tried all smugglers and stamp act violators. He does all of these things to make the people unhappy, then uses the unhappiness to be stricter and enforce more rules and acts. Basically a Robinarch is a modern day dictator. Overall the king held all of the power; he had all sorts of jobs, titles, and pensions to give to whomever he liked. And when the king gave you something you owed him loyalty that how he kept receiving more and more power. What are the Americans supposed to do when they have a Robinarch on their hands? They are obligated to resist. I mean it is their duty as citizens to resist the Robinarch and if necessary have a revolution but that is the last step to be taken if the colonist have repeatedly resisted and all resistance have been ignored. The ways the colonist were allowed to protest were to write pamphlets, to petition, to cause economic boycotts (which was usually the most effective way) or to cause civil disobediences.. The stamp act is what pulled the last straw and was a turning point for being walked over. The stamp act placed a tax on fifty items such as different legal documents, reading materials, gaming materials, and port clearance papers. The stamp act regulated loading and unloading of trading vessels, which was to help customs into finding smugglers. (Lopez,77) The entire purpose of the stamp act is to catch smugglers and make......

The Green Revolution

...characterized as the "Green Revolution". Effects of the Green Revolution The Green Revolution helped to reduce widespread poverty, averting hunger for millions of people. However the Green Revolution also spurred its share of negative consequences, often not because of the technology itself but rather, because of the policies that were used to promote rapid intensification of agricultural systems and increase food supplies. According to Pingali (2012) Africa was the main exception to the success of the Green Revolution in the developing world. During the Green Revolution, the demand for intensification in Africa was quite low because land was relatively abundant. Farmers had little incentive to intensify land use because there was no incentive to save on land costs. In the 1960s and 1970s, national and international programs sought to short cut the varietal improvement process in sub-Saharan Africa by introducing unsuitable crop varieties from Asia and Latin America. This pattern remained until the 1980s, when more suitable varieties finally became available, based on research specifically targeted to African conditions. The Green Revolution impacted not only food production but also socio-economic factors and environmental stability. (Buttel et al., 1985). The Green Revolution therefore had both positive and negatives effects and these can be further examined under the following headings: Social Effects India is another example where the effect of the Green Revolution......

...Stephanie Martinez Ms. Hawkins English 976 November 24, 2014 “You Must Vote” On September 21, 2012 Hank Green discusses in his Vlog “You Must Vote” how important it is as an American to vote. Green examines all the horrible reasons why people say that they don’t want to, or why they can’t vote. One example Green gives is “one single vote might not count towards who wins the election but every vote does count” (Green). What he is saying is to those of you who think that your one vote won’t change anything, but in fact it does. You need multiple people to make a difference and you can be one of those people. Green talks about how Americans have a voice in this country and voting is a way to get one of those voices heard. We have pretty good system when it comes to voting what we say goes we all have a say in what happens in this country. “Voting is our responsibility” (Green). Green basically is saying that voting is important so all those excuses you have are just excuses and you need to let your voice be heard. I defiantly agree with Green I have never voted and I realize now that my vote might not have a huge impact to what happens but it is still an impact. If only half of people voted in the United States then the other half of people wouldn’t matter. For example, if they voted gay marriage illegal then it will be because no one else is voting to help change it. If all Americans voted then everyone’s view and opinions would matter. After, watching this video I......

...society. The definition of a revolution varies, depending who you ask. Most would say the definition of a revolution is an overthrow of an established government or political system by the people governed. It also may be defined as a radical and pervasive change in society and the social structure, especially one made suddenly and often accompanied by violence. Revolution effect on society varies. Revolutions have both a positive and negative effect on people and society in which it takes place. For example the industrial revolution made sever changes in agriculture, manufacturing, mining, transportation and technology. This revolution made things easier for people; the machinery invented made working much easier. You didn't have to pull a plow because a tractor did it for you. Technology had profound effect socioeconomic and cultural conditions of the times. The industrial revolution began in the United Kingdom but spread throughout Europe, North America and eventually the rest of the world. This Revolution marks a major turning point in human history. The American revolution had a large impact on woman and their rights. The American Revolution had a large impact on slavery also. Woman before this time had little to now rights at all. Women's roles became more valued for their aid in the revolution and were under the idea of "Republican motherhood" or mothers for the new nation. They began to have ideas of the revolution stimulate hopes and......

...religious beliefs and popular cultural practices is setting the tone for an era of big changes and bigger impacts. It would be skewed to predict the reaction of the world if Galileo was to prove the Copernican theory in today’s time. Every scientific discovery and innovation goes through some resistance at the inception but with facts and logic, it is accepted sooner or later. It is similar to the struggle any new school of thought or idea faces when it is brought to the eye of the public for the first time; but with the quest for knowledge and reasoning, Science finds a way to creep into the norms of the society. Science and Technology is ingrained in the fabric of society since a long time, just the colour of the fabric changes from red to green from time to time. It is not wrong to say that scientific developments change the way a society functions but the fact that the need to bring scientific changes arises somewhere from the deeper levels of the society only. The need for connectivity with mobility brought mobile phones but mobile phones shaped the society making landlines obsolete. It is a never-ending debate with facts proven from both sides....

Patagonia: Leading a Green Revolution

...Case Study Four Patagonia: Leading a Green Revolution 1) Patagonia has a history of putting sustainability ahead of profits. Based on what you learned about Patagonia’s ideals, how do you think the company determines what possible ventures will be both business practical and environmentally friendly? Patagonia determines how its possible ventures will be both business practical and environmentally friendly by turning their company into a eco friendly environment. It clearly states this in their mission statement. “ Build the best product, cause no unnecessary harm, use business to inspire and implement solutions to the environmental crisis” Their main focus is going “green” to help the environment but also using business as a way to expand this envision. Profit and helping the environment are the two main building blocks of this company. All products that are used in this company are environmentally friendly.

...The movement of recovered companies in present day Argentina truly is a “new workers” revolution in Argentina and a viable alternative to neo- liberalism. This movement exemplifies all the qualities that workers look for when part of a company. Equality, growth, and a pleasant working environment are most of the qualities that this movement provides. A revolution is a fundamental change in power or organizational structures that takes place in a relatively short period of time. So this movement of recovered companies is truly a “new workers” revolution in Argentina. After these businesses where closed and caused many people to become unemployed it was up to the people to figure out how to feed their families and get their lives back. To many of the workers the company jobs were an extremely high source of income and also became a way of life due to the years they put in at the factory. So when everything for them hit the wall and it seemed as though they had no options at hand they knew they had to get the companies back up and running and that they could only depend on themselves to get that done. The government was not worried about making sure everyone was employed again and if everyone’s family was feed at that time. The most they wanted to do was collect the funds and any profit that they needed and continue on. This workers revolution is so significant because of the perseverance the people had to sustain in order to get the businesses back rolling. They went months......

...WEDNESDAY 23RD SEPTEMBER 2015 MORNING DEVOTION. HINDERANCES TO REVOLUTION IN FRIENDSHIPS AND RELATIONSHIPS PART 1 TODAY'S SCRIPTURE."Friends love through all kinds of weather, and families stick together in all kinds of trouble."(Proverbs 17:17 MSG) Friendship is a powerful force that guarantees success! Failure is an orphan. If you know how to keep friends, you will become a success in whatever you do. Your revolution in life is determined by how good you are at making friends and keeping them. If you have a habit of negatively surprising your friends and those you relate with, you will live a lonely life and even God said it is not good for man to be alone. The first thing that destroys friendship is selfishness. Everyone detests selfish people! Selfishness is evident when all you look out for in a friendship or relationship is what you will gain. Friendships do not last when you are selfish. Being a "fair weather" friend is also wrong. The opening scripture says a friend loves at all times; through thick and thin,in bad,good and rough times. A wise man said "a friend in need is a friend indeed"! Do not turn your back on your friends in their dark hours when they need you most. Just like Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus, betrayal is one of the worst things one can experience from friends . It is devastating to see people you call your friends turnaround and stab you in the back. It is worse when they divulge your secrets and fight you publicly. Today's......

Green Revolution

...The first Green Revolution has yet to reach large parts of the country - especially dryland areas, where poverty incidence and farming risk tend to be highest The Second Green Revolution is a change in agricultural production widely thought necessary to feed and sustain the growing population on Earth. These calls have precipitated in part, as a response to rising food commodity prices, and fears of peak oil among other factors India’s 2010-11 harvest was its largest ever, more than 240 million tons. The next harvest is expected to be even bigger. The government recently announced its target for year 2020: 400 million tons. Is this realistic? What changes would it require, in technology, policies and approach? And could these ideas be applied in other developing countries? To answer these questions, we first look at the Green Revolution of the 1960s and ‘70s, which transformed a chronically food-deficient country into the world’s second largest agricultural producer. Between the mid ‘60s and the mid ‘90s, food production more than doubled, while the intensity of hunger and poverty was cut by half. The Green Revolution was driven by greater use of inputs – irrigation, fertilizer, and high-yielding photoperiod-insensitive ‘dwarf’ varieties of wheat and rice. But what set it apart from similar but less successful efforts in other countries was the integrated approach, combining research, education, policy, institutions and services, backed by strong political will.
