Palm Oil and Asian Agri

...Current Situation and Problem Asian Agri, founded in 1979, is one of Asia’s largest integrated palm oil producers. Asian Agri exported about 3 million tonnes of palm oil in 2009, and currently manages 28 oil palm plantations, 19 palm oil mills and four refineries. The company is also a strong advocate for sustainable palm oil production and usage, and is currently a member of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). Sukanto Tanoto, founder of Asian Agri, is currently facing a dilemma in the future developments of Asian Agri. Although he believes that palm oil has a bright future ahead, there are many challenges faced by the company in its expansion such as the increasing difficulty in acquiring land in Indonesia, and the rising pressure from the international NGOs. Future of Palm Oil and Asian Agri Tanoto is right on the bright future of palm oil. Firstly, palm oil, also known as the “golden corp” of Southeast Asia, is the most economic edible oil to produce given its highest yield and lowest cost of production compared to other edible oil. Secondly, with the fast-growing population around the world, and the need to drive economic growth in developing nations such as China and India, the demand for food and fuel is expected to grow significantly, thus the same for palm oil. Thirdly, there are many rising health concerns with trans fat, and many consumer packaged goods (CPG) companies and consumers are seeking to limit trans fat consumption. Thus palm......

The Golden Ration

...The golden ratio is a mathematical ratio of 1 to about 1.618. The golden ratio is found naturally in the world and in nature, but we can create if we try. Most artists that use the golden ratio either use it for the purpose of showing their sheer ability in mathematics to use it correctly and efficiently in their painting, sculptures, and other works of art, or for the mere fact that mankind as a whole has an, as of yet, unexplainable attractions to the golden ratio. Or in other words, the golden ratio makes things better looking or more appealing to the human eye. And because art is seen through the eye of the beholder, having the golden ratio throughout one’s work could be the difference between a piece of art and masterpiece. The first piece of artwork I want to talk about is the Last Supper by renowned painter Leonardo da Vinci. There are golden ration rectangles everywhere. You can see the rectangles on the entire length of the table where the disciples and Jesus are eating. You can also see the rectangles about the faces of said people, split on the disciples on the left, Jesus in the middle, and the disciples on the right. The feet of all the people eating are in their own rectangles as well, once again on the left, middle, and right respectively. Additionally, if you look at the background you can see the golden ratio on the back wall and the windows with an outside view. The next piece of artwork I would like to talk about is the most famous painting in the world the...

The assertions that were relevant to Paragon’s construction projects are: existence and occurrence, completeness, valuation or allocation, and presentation and disclosure. Existence and occurrence: should have been used to test the revenue and gross profit on its construction projects. By testing to see if the assertion is appropriate to make sure that all revenue and gross profit exist would have brought the attention to the $4 million of un-invoiced construction costs that materialized at the end of fiscal 1997. This assertion test also would have revealed that the earned value method in practice was allowing Paragon to book much larger amounts of revenue and gross profit on its construction projects than it would have under the cost-to-cost method. Completeness: the SEC said that Sullivan and his subordinates should have rigorously tested Paragon’s large amounts of unbilled revenues at the end of 1997. A significant amount of unbilled revenue that is reported as complete should be tested to determine the reason no billing has been posted for the work that was done. It also should be determined the reason income is being recognized for jobs that have not been identified as works in progress to determine the exact completion date of the project. By testing this assertion it would have been discovered that $4 million of work was fictitious. Valuation or allocation: Paragon overstated its revenue and profits by using......

The Golden Advice

...Tate Fleming The Golden Advice Essay #4 617 The Golden Advice A typical message for all high school students would be, “You better start getting ready for college!” The fact of the matter is, not all high school students know how to get ready for college. Many people get to where they think they`ve always wanted to go, but ended up not liking where they are when it`s too late. College is somewhere you`re going to be spending the next four years of your life, or maybe more, so you want to make sure you`ve put legitimate thought into where you want to go. Every college student has different advice for high school students. Mine to you is start getting a study habit, think about the location of where you want to go to school, and then think about how much it`s going to cost for you to go to the school you`re interested in. For starters, get into a good study habit. Most high schools don`t require near as much studying than what is required for college. Simply put, college is a totally different lifestyle. You`re on your own and you don’t have anyone telling you to study, so you have to make sure you stay on top of everything. Classes are more difficult, test are more difficult, homework is more difficult, the list goes on. Most students get to college and get completely overwhelmed with how much they actually have to study. If you get into a good study habit now, you`ll be much better off and won`t be overwhelmed. That would be my first and probably most......

Golden Ratio

... Central Luzon State University College of Arts and Sciences Department of Psychology The Golden Ratio: Reference of Beauty Submitted to: Nixon Agaser Submitted by: Jam Shimei I. Gamboa Jeanne R. Dadufalza Eden Leigh Pagoso Micah A. Montes The Golden Ratio: Reference of Beauty Beauty has been defined as a combination of qualities that give pleasure to the senses or to the mind. It is a philosophical concept, the aspects of which are studied under the term aesthetics, derived from the Greek word for perception (aisthesis). Aesthetics, therefore, is the study of beauty and, to a lesser extent, it’s opposite the ugly. It involves both the understanding and evaluation of beauty, proportions and symmetry. The assessment of facial beauty is immersed in subjectivity and therefore leans towards the world of art. Facial proportions and facial balance, however, can be measured and therefore fit somewhere between art and science. Aesthetics itself is now essentially a science in the formation, although obviously with a very strong philosophical and artistic background (Naini, et al. 2008.) According to Jang (2014) it is becoming clear that there is a science to beauty. Extensive research has shown that we have similar ideas about what constitutes a beautiful face. When British researchers asked women to rate pictures of various men, their choices were identical. When a group including English, Chinese, and Indians were asked to choose a “good looking” face from a selection of......

Sustainable Agri

...It’s a very exciting year 2015 for the Agri sector with the abolishment of the quota and the expected expansion within the dairy community as our traditional way of farming is demising as we are adapting to the methods of the new Zealanders and the Americans. Minister Simon coveney is now putting emphasis on this sustainable agriculture while we continue to become more productive and efficient in our daily practices as an Irish farmer today. * As the high expectations of food harvest 2020 looms in the future pressure is building on the sector to produce the goods without damaging the environment. Here I’m going to discuss the 2020 vision and access if Ireland is on the right track. The Agri-food & fisheries is Irelands largest indigenous industry with a huge history behind it and this industry currently employees 150,000 people and a €24billion output. Ireland is known globally for its high standards of food hygiene and production whilst maintaining excellent animal welfare. In my opinion 2020 can be looked at in a very positive way this is a big opportunity for this sector to grow and develop in a safe manner as the guidelines have been set with a number of key principles to be kept in mind throughout the growth period. I will go through the principles of sustainable agriculture later in the assignment. The current targets set for the year 2020 are as follows: 1. Increasing the value of primary output in the Agri, fisheries and forestry sector by 1.5......

The Golden Parachute

...GOVERNANCE AND STRATEGY THE GOLDEN PARACHUTE Prepared for: Professor Toru Yoshikawa By: Matthew Lim Zhi Liang S9118245I An Introduction to the Golden Parachute When we talk about executive compensation, one topic that never fails to come up is the Golden Parachute. The Golden Parachute, as the name suggest is an executive safety net of sorts that is included in the employment contracts of senior-level executives. Basically it is a special payment – usually a lump-sum amounting to millions, that is paid in the event of a change in control of the company1. The reasons for the implementation of the Golden Parachute is something that has been constantly debated, but the most common objective, and the objective I will be focusing on in this paper is to control the behaviour of the management in the event of a acquisition2. Often times when an acquisition occurs, the management of the acquired firm will not stay with the new firm, meaning that their will not benefit from the acquisition, but would rather suffer if the acquisition occurs. As such they might be inclined to try to prevent the acquisition, and not act in the best interest of the shareholders3. The Golden Parachute serves to ensure that the management acts in the best interest of the shareholders by providing a mechanism to protect their own personal self interest. Another objective that is often talked about would be that of an anti-takeover mechanism4. The Golden Parachute serves as a......

The Golden Rule

...Book final final THE GOLDEN RULE as THE SUPREME PRINCIPLE implications for FAITH Faith within the Limits of Love and Reason SECTION ONE: Why Reason Must Have the Final Word To see why reason must have the final word in all things, I will illustrate the role of reason in three different cases. This I think should suffice to make the point. (1) Consulting Some Authority Suppose we are confronted with two or more conflicting alternatives concerning what to say, think or do and in hopes of resolving this confusing conflict, we seek out some wiser person, some authority, who can give us the correct answer. This raises the question: Who is the authority we can turn to: our Mom, our Dad, our grandparent, a priest or a clergyman, a Rabbi or Ayatollah, a bodhisattva, a therapist or counselor, the Pope, a lawyer, a real estate agent, an auto mechanic? Well, of course, our choice depends on the nature of our problem. So, reason needs to play a role here in helping us to determine what kind of authority to consult. Okay, let us suppose that our conflict is of a religious nature. We still need to ask which priest, which clergyman, which Rabbi, which Ayatollah or which bodhisattva etc. to choose. So here again, reason has a role to play. There is more. After we have settled who to consult, sometimes we will find that the advice is really bad advice. Sometimes we will find that the advice is really good advice. On still other occasions, we won't know what to make of the......
