Transcript: Accenture's relationship with PETRONAS Carigali started since 2009. We're currently engaged in PED, DD and Drilling, and moving to PEX in the near future.... Efficient budget management and increased cost recovery Reduce unnecessary work on reviews 300 wells drilled annually USD 2 billion spend per year Over 20 Drilling Rigs Supported by 20 contractors per rig USD120 mil in 2010 in unrecoverable cost Conduct leadership engagement sessions and provide training on processes and tools Engineers and Stakeholders have minimal visibility of project activities expenditure in Appraisal and Development segments of upstream value chain Key Figures Drilling Standardise and streamline division wide cost control and APC, WPB, CPB, AFE and VOWD processes Challenge #2 Carigali divisions Cost Controllers, engineers and stakeholders are unclear of cost control processes throughout the entire project The Challenge Line of Accountability (LOA) Alignment Project Improve accuracy of well cost performance and minimize disputes Client's Situation # Teamwork is the ability to work cohesively as a group toward a common vision, even when that vision becomes extremely blurry.... Cost Control Benefits in ELEVATE Sample Reports Challenge #1 Clear accountabilities and greater integration The Situation Potential cost not recoverable from both Partner and host government projects Our Solution Contractor specific tracking sheets are introduced to align reporting and forecasting requirements across all contractors. Is the supply sufficient to meet the demand? Project controls adequate to risk level Gc Define Terms of Reference for all Reviews and Gates with clear owners in PETRONAS Carigali. The Challenge Key Benefits We work with all Divisions and Departments to: How do these complex reports fit in to the mobile display? PETRONAS Project Management System Inefficient budget management due to the lack of visibility of cost The Situation Manpower Planning Automate data consolidation and generation of management reports to enhance division wide cost control process governance Development Division has no visibility on the current and future manpower gaps between demand from projects and supply from line Project delievered on time and on budget Business impact 2. Enhanced and effective control over budget utilisation Consistent Project Control 3. Simple and interactive way to perform detailed analysis How do we improve the visibility to drive faster and informed decision to address manpower gaps? Co How do we improve cost control while maintaining the efficiency of drilling operations? Manpower Planning Project Governance & Control the team PETRONAS E&P Reorganisation Drilling Engineers have no on-time visibility on cost and forecast charged to the rig/platform for effective control Customise PPMS roadmap to cater for different project types and complexities PED & DD Cost Transparency and Control Project By using latest web technology – jQuery and HTML5 to retrofit and reformat the reports specifically for mobile devices Timely payment and lower cost of working capital Lack of clarity in roles and responsibilities across Divisions No ownership and inconsistent application of responsibilities PPMS is a stage gate framework that helps to control a project in its lifecycle to ensure consistent risk management and governance. Drilling Cost Transparency & Control Project (DCTCP) The Solution Why web app instead of native iOS or Android App? Our Customised Solution: ELEVATE The Challenges Dr The Solution 1. Visibility of division wide project performance All project types are currently required to sit through all the reviews and obtain approvals / endorsements before proceeding to the next gate.

Culturally and Linguistically Diverse Students in Gifted Education: Recruitment & Retention Issues Do we hold negative, stereotypical, or counterproductive views as defined by Ford and Grantham? WE ARE TEACHERS And We Help To Shape The Students’ Futures! FORGET about IQ- Alternative Assessments 5 Asian American students are NOT! Provide enrichment activities to students who are perceived "not ready" for gifted programs. 5 These students deserve a chance to shine and should be provided with support and opportunities to demonstrate their giftedness. "We suggest that deficit thinking and the use of traditional tests (especially IQ tests) and lack of teacher referral of CLD students for gifted education screening and placement are the primary contributing factors to underrepresentation." Bias 5 C) the burden rests with (or within) the student (e.g., he/she is cognitively inferior or "culturally deprived") Testing & Assessment Issues "The bright and the hungry ... are crucial to our success" Strengths Themes References Terminology 4 Make adjustments to your lessons with special attention to vocabulary acquisition. 1. Background/Bias stop students from being identified 2. Standardized test scores stop referrals 3. Lack of training in cultural diversity as well as gifted education 4. Lack of communication with cultural diverse parents whether intentional or unintentional 5. Policies & procedures that are both indefensible and have a negative impact on CLD students 6. Static definitions & theories of gifted that give little consideration to cultural differences Culturally diverse students are those that may come from different regions and races, social backgrounds, and may also be economically disadvantaged. English may even be their second language. Retention 2, 3 IQ or intelligence quotient is a general assessment of your ability to think and reason. Your IQ score is actually an indication of how you compare in this ability with the majority of people in your age group. A rating of 100, for example, means that, as compared to the majority of other people in your age group, you have a normal rate of intelligence. Most psychologists consider those falling in the range of 95-105 as having a normal or average IQ. Since it is difficult to pinpoint with absolute accuracy, your actual IQ may vary 5 points either way from your test score. In addition, there are many factors that may affect your scoring. If you are tired, ill or distracted, your score may be affected. Finally, there are many abilities which are not measured by IQ testing. For example, IQ does not measure musical talent, manual dexterity, or a variety of other abilities. However, IQ testing does give you an important indication of your ability to think, reason and solve problems. This is critical to your success in life. The IQ Test is comprised of 15 questions. Be sure to view your results at the end of this test. Do not begin until you are instructed to do so. You will have 3 minutes. Good luck! Reasons for Poor Test Performance of CLD students: Raven's Progressive Matrices 5 Become aware of teacher bias. Why do educators serve less Hispanic, Black, and Aboriginal students than White? (A) the burden rests within the test (e.g., test bias); 6 Limitations IQ Test Instructions This is the main reason educators should become more aware of their students who may be underserved and underrepresented. "As of 2002, Asian American students represented 4.42% of students in U.S. schools but 7.64% of those in gifted education" - No clear suggestions as to how to retain students in Gifted education. – Also does not compare states among one another. Ideally: Naglieri Non-Verbal Ability Test & Raven's Progressive Matrices Assess students from the perspective of individual learning styles. Currently: The first step is

Transcript: Soil Erosion This process can cause environmental damages 1) Loss of soil fertility by depletion of plant nutrients in topsoil meaning that the land is becoming less suitable for cultivation more desert-like 70% of the world's dry lands used for agriculture are threatened by desertification Water Erosion Eroded soil becomes sediment in nearby surface waters, causing cloudy water / higher turbidity In severe cases, wind can carry away topsoil and can create a dust storm Humans have accelerated natural soil erosion Around 15% of Earth's ice-free land surface is afflicted by all forms of land degradation The area affected by tillage and farming erosion is unknown We can try to prevent soil erosion by: Encourage safer farming Keeping soil saturated can prevent erosion by wind 3) Windbreak / Alley Cropping Favis-Mortlock, David.
