I. Event Description

September is considered the National Science Club Month (NSCM) under Presidential Proclamation No. 264. During the NSCM, the Philippine Society of Youth Science Clubs (PSYSC) conducts activities that encourage the youth to actively participate in the science clubbing movement. Through these activities, PSYSC aims to provide a venue for the interaction of science clubs and to recognize excellence through workshops and friendly competitions. The three (3) main events that will kick-off this year’s NSCM are the National Science Clubs Summit (Summit), PSYSC Science Olympiad (PSO), and I Teach Science Seminar (ITSS).

Example would be Wal-Mart and Lowe’s where they have a company cheer. Where they spell out the name loudly and excitedly, that really gets the new employee’s excited to be working for the company! Then send the new employee to the floor to shadow a current employee in what they are doing. Day one- Company Policy overview open to page one and each person read aloud a paragraph at a time. This is break up the monotony of one person reading, and gives each person a chance to feel more comfortable in the room with their new co workers. This is a somewhat boring way to read through the company policy handbook, but this ensures that each person has read or had this read to them. After that portion is completed we would move onto procedures. This is very important for each employee new and old to know what the company procedures are. When working in the retail area, it is at the utmost importance to follow proper procedures. We cannot let the customers think that we play favorites, and let some of them get away with something’s that others cannot. Example would be our personal check policy; it is a requirement that we have a driver’s license in order to accept a personal check or holding product is another one, we can only hold product if they have put down some money on it (similar to lay a way) otherwise we are not able to hold that......

Weather is also the secondlargest cause of flight accidents. Fuel Cost - on average, fuel can make up 14-16% of an airline's total costs, although efficiency among different carriers can vary widely. Short haul airlines typically get lower fuel efficiency because take-offs and landings consume high amounts of jet fuel.
