Upon getting information about an upcoming school science fair and the need to consider a topic of interest, many students will typically have no idea where to get started. While the science fair is typically a common occurrence in any school at any grade level, there are different types of topics that should be taken a look at depending on the age of the student. After first taking a look at the many different categories of science projects, you will be able to locate a suitable choice of topic to take to the next level.There is a wide variety of categories that fall under the types of science projects that can be chosen for a school science fair. These include biology, chemistry, physics, microbiology, biochemistry, medicine, environmental, mathematics, engineering, and earth science. While you may not have yet learned very much in any of these categories, don’t be afraid to see what each one entails. Taking a good look at your interests will allow you to focus on the right direction to take.Many resources are also available for those who are unsure as to the topic they are wanting to use to create their science projects. If you take a look at the topics that fall under the biology category, you will likely notice that there are topics that deal with plants, animals, and humans. For those who are in 2nd grade or 3rd grade, an interesting topic may be to determine if ants are picky over what type of food they eat. While this topic might not be of interest to an 8th grader, it is certainly something in the biology category that an elementary school student would enjoy.Along with the biology category, a high school student may want to take a look at diffusion and osmosis in animal cells as this would be a more appropriate topic for the grade level. A student in 6th grade would be more advanced than an elementary school student, but not as advanced as a high school student. At this middle school grade level, a topic of how pH levels effect the lifespan of a tadpole may be of interest.Whichever resource is used to locate a topic for science projects, it is always a good idea to consider the grade level of the student prior to making a selection. It is always assumed to be best to have a project at an appropriate level in order to keep the attention of the student and provide a fun and enjoyable learning experience.
Due to the rise in the trend of companies shifting their focus from traditional marketing to digital marketing, many agencies and consultancies have opened up which provide basic services in digital marketing. These agencies and consultancies advise companies on what sort of digital marketing strategy they should adopt and then how should they implement that strategy. Moreover, you can simply get advice or guidance rather than getting a full fledged Internet marketing strategy planned out.Now to focus on the fact that why is there a general shift towards digital marketing. The basic reason is due to the wide spread use of the internet these days. The basic aim of any marketing strategy is to gain exposure for your company and your products and these days in this age of technology and electronics the best way to advertise is to do it digitally.Digital marketing is the use of any electronic or digital media to advertise or promote your product. These means could be the TV, radio, mobiles phones; however, the most popular is the internet. Digital marketing via the internet has been proved to be quite effective along with being cost- effective. The basic internet tools Internet marketing employs are search engines, website or web blogs.Coming on to search engines, we know that almost everyone uses search engines daily to find things online. So why not take advantage of the extensive use of search engines and use them to promote your products? One of the most popular search engines is Google which is also the market leader of all search results.Google has many effective strategies and is quite selective in choosing websites which are placed in its first few search results pages.

With all the many different advertisements and conversations all over the world, many people are wanting to start an online business from home. As you watch the news, read the advertisements on the internet, read the newspaper or possibly even talk on the social network sites, the information on this subject are endless. You find people all over the internet that are claiming to be the “expert” in the field, the opportunity is flawless and the rewards just fall into your lap. I want you to read this article very carefully and understand what it really takes to start an online business from home but also maintain one.First Thing is First, Do You Know Your Why?I see many people that want to start an online business from home because of a possible situation that has just recently happened in their life. These situations could be job loss, a sick family member or even the need of additional income, which could all be good reasons but some of the most successful people I know; their reason is a little different. Much like my reason, many very successful people that start an online business from home were tired of working long hours and missing time with their family, they hated working weekends, the mandatory overtime and the long commutes to work. I like them knew there had to be a better way of life and we found it in an online business from home.What Exactly Does It TakeMany people are drawn into the online business from home arena under false pretenses of working a couple hours a week, sitting on their couch watch the television and just watching their bank accounts fill up. If you are in this mindset as I just described, I suggest two things:Change your mindset, if you want to start an online business from home and have what we call the “lottery mentality”, you will fail. If you are willing to change your mindset, then please continue to read further. If you feel that you cannot change your mindset, then please leave this page as I do not promote or condone the “get rich quick” or “lottery mentality” as it is not a legitimate way to start an online business from home.If you are willing to learn new skills, willing to do things that you have never done before, have a winning attitude and willing to embrace and take action with the tools and education I can provide you, then welcome to the rest of the article.Have The Right Support If you are looking to have your own online business, you could do it on your own but the likeliness of you succeeding is nearly zero, it is a very hard factor to swallow but it is true. If you do have a product or service to sell, how are you going to market it online? How are you going to get your product or service in front of people on their computer? Most people that want to have an online business do not have a product or service so they look at becoming an internet marketer or affiliate marketer where you sell other peoples products or services. This is a great way to become very successful as there are very low risks and very low if any overhead at all. With many affiliation opportunities there is some type of support within the business, some are better than others, some have a better return on investment and some just downright stink in my opinion. Having the right support means the community or other team members will help you learn and prosper in your online business.Building Your Business Step By StepAs with any successful business whether it was online or offline, they started out and continued to build step by step, they took consistent action to learn and market their company. Many companies and individuals that start an online business use low cost or free methods to market their business at first to not spend all their capital within the first few months. Remember that most businesses fail within their first three years, many times because they did not leverage the tools available to them and did not have inspirational marketing to promote their business.A few free or low cost marketing tools that I could help you learn are blogging, article marketing, video marketing, forums, pay-per-click, email marketing, ezines and many more. With over 4 billion people online all over the world, it only makes sense to start an online business from home, but without the proper education it can become quite frustrating and expensive as you will go through the school of hard knocks; just as I did.
Video editing software is a personnel decision that should be based on the amount of editing that you intend to do, your comfort level with video editing software and your budget. For the purposes of this discussion I am not going to suggest which program that you should use. I will discuss the program that I use, but not in an attempt to promote it, but rather to bring up the things that I think editing software should be able to to in the home application. What you choose is up to your own comfort level because editing software is a very personal decision.Pinnacle Studio Plus meets all of my requirements for home use. You can import from any tape source or DVD source and you can control color and brightness as you import your video. Once in the editing suite, you have three audio tracks to work with (six would be better and may come with newer releases), a full titling section with preset fonts and the ability to change to custom settings, an audio mixing function, plenty of video effects and transitions and the ability to export your final cut to many different formats as a file or to DVD. All of this comes to you with video editing software for under $100 and under $150 if you include the import box.Having spent many years working on the Avid Film Composer, it is amazing to me how much you can do with a $150 video editing package. Some processes are not as simple as on the Film Composer, but with a little thought and creativity, you can get the Pinnacle video software to do what ever you want. As with anything else, the longer you work with it the easier it becomes. Home video editing requires that you are able manipulate video, smooth audio transitions, add video transitions. title and add music. These are all easily done with this video editing software.It is extremely important that whatever movie editing software you use, whether it be the basic program that comes with your computer or a high end after market software, that you are comfortable with it and it accomplishes what you need to get done in your editing sessions. It does you no good if the video editing software can do anything, but is too complicated for you to use. Another thing to keep in mind with large complicated software is the amount of space that they consume on your computer. Big programs need a lot of hard drive space and ram.Spend a little time and due the research because video editing programs are not one size fits all.
BackgroundPolice funding has risen by £4.8 billion and 77 per cent (39 per cent in real terms) since 1997. However the days where forces have enjoyed such levels of funding are over.Chief Constables and senior management recognize that the annual cycle of looking for efficiencies year-on-year is not sustainable, and will not address the cash shortfall in years to come.
Facing slower funding growth and real cash deficits in their budgets, the Police Service must adopt innovative strategies which generate the productivity and efficiency gains needed to deliver high quality policing to the public.The step-change in performance required to meet this challenge will only be achieved if the police service fully embraces effective resource management and makes efficient and productive use of its technology, partnerships and people.The finance function has an essential role to play in addressing these challenges and supporting Forces’ objectives economically and efficiently.ChallengePolice Forces tend to nurture a divisional and departmental culture rather than a corporate one, with individual procurement activities that do not exploit economies of scale. This is in part the result of over a decade of devolving functions from the center to the.divisions.In order to reduce costs, improve efficiency and mitigate against the threat of “top down” mandatory, centrally-driven initiatives, Police Forces need to set up a corporate back office and induce behavioral change. This change must involve compliance with a corporate culture rather than a series of silos running through the organization.Developing a Best in Class Finance FunctionTraditionally finance functions within Police Forces have focused on transactional processing with only limited support for management information and business decision support. With a renewed focus on efficiencies, there is now a pressing need for finance departments to transform in order to add greater value to the force but with minimal costs.1) Aligning to Force StrategyAs Police Forces need finance to function, it is imperative that finance and operations are closely aligned. This collaboration can be very powerful and help deliver significant improvements to a Force, but in order to achieve this model, there are many barriers to overcome. Finance Directors must look at whether their Force is ready for this collaboration, but more importantly, they must consider whether the Force itself can survive without it.Finance requires a clear vision that centers around its role as a balanced business partner. However to achieve this vision a huge effort is required from the bottom up to understand the significant complexity in underlying systems and processes and to devise a way forward that can work for that particular organization.The success of any change management program is dependent on its execution. Change is difficult and costly to execute correctly, and often, Police Forces lack the relevant experience to achieve such change. Although finance directors are required to hold appropriate professional qualifications (as opposed to being former police officers as was the case a few years ago) many have progressed within the Public Sector with limited opportunities for learning from and interaction with best in class methodologies. In addition cultural issues around self-preservation can present barriers to change.Whilst it is relatively easy to get the message of finance transformation across, securing commitment to embark on bold change can be tough. Business cases often lack the quality required to drive through change and even where they are of exceptional quality senior police officers often lack the commercial awareness to trust them.2) Supporting Force DecisionsMany Finance Directors are keen to develop their finance functions. The challenge they face is convincing the rest of the Force that the finance function can add value – by devoting more time and effort to financial analysis and providing senior management with the tools to understand the financial implications of major strategic decisions.Maintaining Financial Controls and Managing RiskSarbanes Oxley, International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), Basel II and Individual Capital Assessments (ICA) have all put financial controls and reporting under the spotlight in the private sector. This in turn is increasing the spotlight on financial controls in the public sector.A ‘Best in Class’ Police Force finance function will not just have the minimum controls to meet the regulatory requirements but will evaluate how the legislation and regulations that the finance function are required to comply with, can be leveraged to provide value to the organization. Providing strategic information that will enable the force to meet its objectives is a key task for a leading finance function.3) Value to the ForceThe drive for development over the last decade or so, has moved decision making to the Divisions and has led to an increase in costs in the finance function. Through utilizing a number of initiatives in a program of transformation, a Force can leverage up to 40% of savings on the cost of finance together with improving the responsiveness of finance teams and the quality of financial information. These initiatives include:CentralizationBy centralizing the finance function, a Police Force can create centers of excellence where industry best practice can be developed and shared. This will not only re-empower the department, creating greater independence and objectivity in assessing projects and performance, but also lead to more consistent management information and a higher degree of control. A Police Force can also develop a business partner group to act as strategic liaisons to departments and divisions. The business partners would, for example, advise on how the departmental and divisional commanders can meet the budget in future months instead of merely advising that the budget has been missed for the previous month.With the mundane number crunching being performed in a shared service center, finance professionals will find they now have time to act as business partners to divisions and departments and focus on the strategic issues.The cultural impact on the departments and divisional commanders should not be underestimated. Commanders will be concerned that:o Their budgets will be centralized
o Workloads would increase
o There will be limited access to finance individuals
o There will not be on site supportHowever, if the centralized shared service center is designed appropriately none of the above should apply. In fact from centralization under a best practice model, leaders should accrue the following benefits:o Strategic advice provided by business partners
o Increased flexibility
o Improved management information
o Faster transactions
o Reduced number of unresolved queries
o Greater clarity on service and cost of provision
o Forum for finance to be strategically aligned to the needs of the ForceA Force that moves from a de-centralized to a centralized system should try and ensure that the finance function does not lose touch with the Chief Constable and Divisional Commanders. Forces need to have a robust business case for finance transformation combined with a governance structure that spans operational, tactical and strategic requirements. There is a risk that potential benefits of implementing such a change may not be realized if the program is not carefully managed. Investment is needed to create a successful centralized finance function. Typically the future potential benefits of greater visibility and control, consistent processes, standardized management information, economies of scale, long-term cost savings and an empowered group of proud finance professionals, should outweigh those initial costs.To reduce the commercial, operational and capability risks, the finance functions can be completely outsourced or partially outsourced to third parties. This will provide guaranteed cost benefits and may provide the opportunity to leverage relationships with vendors that provide best practice processes.Process EfficienciesTypically for Police Forces the focus on development has developed a silo based culture with disparate processes. As a result significant opportunities exist for standardization and simplification of processes which provide scalability, reduce manual effort and deliver business benefit. From simply rationalizing processes, a force can typically accrue a 40% reduction in the number of processes. An example of this is the use of electronic bank statements instead of using the manual bank statement for bank reconciliation and accounts receivable processes. This would save considerable effort that is involved in analyzing the data, moving the data onto different spreadsheet and inputting the data into the financial systems.Organizations that possess a silo operating model tend to have significant inefficiencies and duplication in their processes, for example in HR and Payroll. This is largely due to the teams involved meeting their own goals but not aligning to the corporate objectives of an organization. Police Forces have a number of independent teams that are reliant on one another for data with finance in departments, divisions and headquarters sending and receiving information from each other as well as from the rest of the Force. The silo model leads to ineffective data being received by the teams that then have to carry out additional work to obtain the information required.Whilst the argument for development has been well made in the context of moving decision making closer to operational service delivery, the added cost in terms of resources, duplication and misaligned processes has rarely featured in the debate. In the current financial climate these costs need to be recognized.CultureWithin transactional processes, a leading finance function will set up targets for staff members on a daily basis. This target setting is an element of the metric based culture that leading finance functions develop. If the appropriate metrics of productivity and quality are applied and when these targets are challenging but not impossible, this is proven to result in improvements to productivity and quality.A ‘Best in Class’ finance function in Police Forces will have a service focused culture, with the primary objectives of providing a high level of satisfaction for its customers (departments, divisions, employees & suppliers). A ‘Best in Class’ finance function will measure customer satisfaction on a timely basis through a metric based approach. This will be combined with a team wide focus on process improvement, with process owners, that will not necessarily be the team leads, owning force-wide improvement to each of the finance processes.Organizational ImprovementsOrganizational structures within Police Forces are typically made up of supervisors leading teams of one to four team members. Through centralizing and consolidating the finance function, an opportunity exists to increase the span of control to best practice levels of 6 to 8 team members to one team lead / supervisor. By adjusting the organizational structure and increasing the span of control, Police Forces can accrue significant cashable benefit from a reduction in the number of team leads and team leads can accrue better management experience from managing larger teams.Technology Enabled ImprovementsThere are a significant number of technology improvements that a Police Force could implement to help develop a ‘Best in Class’ finance function.These include:A) Scanning and workflowThrough adopting a scanning and workflow solution to replace manual processes, improved visibility, transparency and efficiencies can be reaped.B) Call logging, tracking and workflow toolPolice Forces generally have a number of individuals responding to internal and supplier queries. These queries are neither logged nor tracked. The consequence of this is dual:o Queries consume considerable effort within a particular finance team. There is a high risk of duplicated effort from the lack of logging of queries. For example, a query could be responded to for 30 minutes by person A in the finance team. Due to this query not being logged, if the individual that raised the query called up again and spoke to a different person then just for one additional question, this could take up to 20 minutes to ensure that the background was appropriately explained.o Queries can have numerous interfaces with the business. An unresolved query can be responded against by up to four separate teams with considerable delay in providing a clear answer for the supplier.The implementation of a call logging, tracking and workflow tool to document, measure and close internal and supplier queries combined with the set up of a central queries team, would significantly reduce the effort involved in responding to queries within the finance departments and divisions, as well as within the actual divisions and departments, and procurement.C) Database solutionThroughout finance departments there are a significant number of spreadsheets utilized prior to input into the financial system. There is a tendency to transfer information manually from one spreadsheet to another to meet the needs of different teams.Replacing the spreadsheets with a database solution would rationalize the number of inputs and lead to effort savings for the front line Police Officers as well as Police Staff.D) Customize reportsIn obtaining management information from the financial systems, police staff run a series of reports, import these into excel, use lookups to match the data and implement pivots to illustrate the data as required. There is significant manual effort that is involved in carrying out this work. Through customizing reports the outputs from the financial system can be set up to provide the data in the formats required through the click of a button. This would have the benefit of reduced effort and improved motivation for team members that previously carried out these mundane tasks.In designing, procuring and implementing new technology enabling tools, a Police Force will face a number of challenges including investment approval; IT capacity; capability; and procurement.These challenges can be mitigated through partnering with a third party service company with whom the investment can be shared, the skills can be provided and the procurement cycle can be minimized.ConclusionIt is clear that cultural, process and technology change is required if police forces are to deliver both sustainable efficiencies and high quality services. In an environment where for the first time forces face real cash deficits and face having to reduce police officer and support staff numbers whilst maintaining current performance levels the current finance delivery models requires new thinking.While there a number of barriers to be overcome in achieving a best in class finance function, it won’t be long before such a decision becomes mandatory. Those who are ahead of the curve will inevitably find themselves in a stronger position.
