The Bad Seed

...Landon White Mrs. Morgan Theatre 1 October 9, 2012 The Bad Seed The bad seed is about a young girl. Her family is rich and her aunt spoils her to no end. She likes jewelry. She goes to a manners class. The mother of this girl is very protective and doesn’t like the aunt to spoil her daughter. One Sunday evening, the daughter is at a manners picnic and the mother and aunt are at home. They here on the radio that an eight year old child has drowned. The mom starts to panic. The aunt tells her that her daughter is too smart to do something like that. The radio said they would contact the parents of the child before they gave out the child’s name to the public. After that they never receive a phone call. Later that night they hear it was an eight year old boy. Her daughter comes home on the bus and acts like nothing is affecting her at all. The mom tells her not to be scared of drowning because of the accident that had just happened. The daughter told her mom that she wasn’t afraid of what had happened at all. This bothers the mother a little bit. The daughter is very proper and has a cocky attitude. She is mean to the person that cleans their house. The person that cleans their house is very creepy and talks about when he and the little girl’s aunt are alone at the house. I didn’t get to see the end of the movie but I think the little girl pushed the boy that drowned into the water and stole the jewelry that was on him. I also think that in the end of the story the man......

... if we are rewarded the contract, this should minimize our time for full occupancy of our office in your state. However a temporary location has been found for immediate, use incase our services are required before our permanent location is complete. Our firm has great experience in risk assessment, for example finding server rooms unlocked or servers just sitting in a corner, another example finding passwords hidden under key boards or other places on a desk and computers that have not had updates done in a very long time. Disaster recovery planning is another service we provide, our last project was a fully functioning datacenter backup up site that could be in operation within milliseconds, users would not even notice the switch over. Our best service we can offer our customers is, penetration testing. With our staff many hours are spent trying to find ways to break into networks and then secure them.

...Golf RFP has launched a beta version of its Request for Proposal (RFP) website designed to connect golf groups with golf courses through a simple bidding process. This is the golf industry’s first online solution that addresses the group business segment. Golf RFP is a free service to any user, golf organizer or meeting planner that completes an online profile. Once the profile has been completed, the user may submit a Golf RFP for one or multiple days of golf, up to seven consecutive days. Users will then receive offers from golf courses interested in earning the group’s business. “We put the power of the sale in the hands of the golf course. It’s up to each individual course if they want to bid on the RFP and how aggressive they wish to get in hopes of winning the business,” said Gary Lorfano, Golf RFP founder. The website is now accepting memberships from golf courses looking to join the Golf RFP network of courses. Each membership type requires an initiation fee. Fees range from $600 for a Member Club and $1,000 for a Premier Club, which includes special advertising benefits on the Golf RFP website. “Today, a golf course relies significantly on group business and that is where Golf RFP will focus,” said Lorfano. A former Tournament Coordinator while at the Marriott Orlando World Center and current owner of Entertainment Solutions Group, a golf centric sports and entertainment company, Lorfano understands not only what the golf courses need, but how to best assist...

What Is a Rfp

...How to Write an RFP for e-Learning Services Including a Customizable RFP Template What is an RFP? How can you narrow the list of possibilities before contracting for services? How can you ensure that your organization’s business needs will be met? One solution is to write and distribute a Request for Proposal (RFP) in the marketplace. An RFP is a document produced by a company seeking goods and/or services and distributed to prospective vendors. Vendors then provide proposals based on the criteria specified within the RFP. A well-written RFP will outline specific information about your organization, the services and products you need, and the specific requirements suppliers must meet in order to win your business. It forces your to identify your business and technical requirements. It also forces the vendor to state in writing to what extent they can meet your requirements. A written RFP increases market awareness of your organization’s needs, thereby increasing the competition to serve those needs and increasing the formality of the relationship between you and the supplier. In short, an RFP places you—the buyer—in control of the desired service levels and related requirements and lets potential vendors know up front that your most important concern is the level of customer service you will receive. Reasons to Write a Formal Request for Proposal • To increase competition for your organization’s money, which will increase the options and potentially could drive......

Seed Germination

...Introduction Seed germination is a process in which the plant’s embryo developed from the seed and forms seedling (Bello, Hatterman-Valenti & Owen, 2000). The process of germination starts with imbibition which is the uptake of water by the dry, followed by the activation of enzyme and ends with the elongation of the radicle. The imbibition stage is a crucial process as it is the first event that moves the seed from a dry, quiescent, dormant organism to the resumption of embryo growth (Bewley, 1997).The breaking of the quiescent and subsequent germination depends on the sufficiency of oxygen, proper amount of water and suitable temperature (Parker, 2000). The penetration of water to the seed coat causes the hard and dry tissues inside to soften. This speeds up the seed metabolism, allowing the water to move quicker as the seed coat splits open. Once the seed are imbibed, the action of enzyme (amylase) takes place (Fenner & Thompson, 2005). It begins during the lag phase of water uptake. The role of enzyme in seed germination is to mobilize nutrients to the growing region of the embryo. Germination of seed is considered complete upon the emergence of radicles from the seed (Copeland, 1999). Germination only occurs when the seed plant is exposed to a favorable condition. The factors affecting the germination of seeds include oxygen, water availability and temperature. Other factors include hormones, the depth at which the seed was planted and light. In this......

...IS4799: Unit 1 Common RFP Sections The common sections of an RFP are:  Introduction: The Introduction section of an RFP states the purpose, scope, and necessary background information about the RFP. The introduction sets the stage for the RFP and summarizes its main points. Each RFP introduction is different and contains information that is specific to that RFP. Many RFPs contain general information that is common, including the following: • Statement of purpose: The statement of purpose summarizes the intent and purpose of the RFP and briefly conveys its reasons for its existence. While it does not contain many performance requirements, this section provides a very general overview of the RFP. The statement of purpose is deliberately high-level and provides few details. • Scope: Readers should gain a general sense of the performance requirements of the RFP from this section. The scope defines the specific products, services, period, terms, and conditions of the RFP. In many RFPs, the scope section simply refers readers to appropriate appendices for more detailed coverage. • Compliance stipulations : The introduction often contains any general compliance stipulations that apply to the RFP process, including vendor selection and performance of the proposal contents. W hile government-related RFPs usually contain statements of compliance with equal opportunity and disability regulations, any other mandatory compliance requirements will be......

The chosen vendor will also have the task of replacing any system that is unable to be upgraded due to being out dated. The measures used to choose a vendor for the upgrade will be based upon operational, technical, cost, management requirements and reliability. Therefore each vendor responding to the request for proposal will need to submit a total cost proposal that includes all requirements presented in the request for proposal.

...best fits the project. To more refine the process, we are also going to involve three rounds of critique of the proposals to make sure the proposals are up to the level of sophistication that we at Baderman demand. These rounds include Minimum Qualifications, Demonstrated Project Assessment and Plan Viability. Round I: Minimum Qualifications It is important that any vendor chosen to fulfill the demands of the project first and foremost pays attention to detail. For us to fully trust a potential vendor they must demonstrate that they care enough about our needs to at the very least complete the RFP in the manner we need it. It is of minimum necessity that the proposal is submitted by the due date of June 15th, 2012 at 4:00pm EST. Any proposal received after this date will be returned unopened. All submissions must at least address the sections and subsections listed on the RFP. All submissions must also be accompanied by 4, verifiable endorsements that were attained from projects with a budget basement of $50,000. Finally, all proposals must include a finished budget with appropriate quotations. Any proposal not meeting the minimum qualifications will be returned to the vendor with an explanation of why their proposal did not make it to the next round.

...Request for Proposal Template A carefully crafted "Request for Proposal" (RFP) is the key to getting the best quality services you require for your project. This tool provides you with guidance and a template for preparing a good RFP. Instructions: 1. The Request for Proposal (RFP) is your "official" statement to vendors about the services you require. Vendors typically try to respond, point by point, to your RFP when they make their proposals. Therefore, the RFP "leads" vendors by focusing their attention on certain issues. In addition, it shapes their first impressions of your training development group and the project to be completed. Most importantly, the RFP is the foundation upon which the vendor's relationship with you is built. 2. For these reasons, the RFP must be carefully crafted and reviewed before distributing it to vendors. 3. This template below provides some suggestions for the contents of an RFP. REQUEST FOR PROPOSAL TEMPLATE A TYPICAL RFP The typical RFP includes the following sections: I. The General Training Goals This section includes the general business goals which are met by the new product or process on which the training will be based. In addition, it describes the key components of the new product or process (how it works) and compares these to existing products or processes with which vendors may be familiar. II.

Seed in Bangladesh

... Seed is an important vehicle for technological innovations. And good seed is one of the first and foremost prerequisites for a healthy and vigorous crop. However, seed is more than an agricultural input and a source of new technologies. A range of developmental, socio-economic, environmental and political issues are also covered by seed: food security, natural resource management, agro biodiversity, intellectual property rights, social dynamics, gender, cultural and religious dimensions, policies and regulations. And seed technology is the total of all the systematic activities necessary for production and supply of quality seeds in the crop culture of a country. These systematic activities are: multiplication, processing and preservation, quality assurance, marketing and finally ensuring the use of seed by farmers. The sequential approach in ensuring the use of quality seed has been undertaken in mid seventies and the quantity of seeds supplied by following the seed technological activities is only 6% of the total requirement. Rest of the seed used in the country is almost of unknown quality. Researches undertaken in these areas are inadequate and fragmentary. History of Seed System Development Traditionally, farmers keep a part of their produce as seed and use it for subsequent crop production. They also collect seed from their neighbors’ when necessary. Seeds were also sold in village markets. Seed traders were......
