City of Toronto Grants Department

Date: November 15, 2011

To: Mayor Rob Ford, Mayor of Toronto cc: Toronto City Council

From: Senior Grants Officer

Subject: Ford City Grants Fund Application from Toronto Arts Council

The Toronto Arts Council has applied to a new fund, the Ford City Grants Fund, which was created for granting funding to non-profit organizations. Successful bidders will receive up to a $50,000 grant to offset costs from their operations and expenditures.

This report serves to critically evaluate the Toronto Arts Council and determine whether it is worthy of receiving funding from the new Ford City Grants Fund. It will begin by providing a brief overview of the Toronto Arts Council and its activities, followed by evaluating how the Toronto Arts Council impacts Toronto's society and the need for the organization’s services. Lastly, the memo will conclude by deciding whether to grant the Ford City Grants Fund to the organization.

This report is important as the Ford City Grants Fund has limited funds available and up to $50,000 may be granted to the organization, which is a hefty sum considering that money is tight. Furthermore, many organizations are applying for grants due to recent cuts in funding. It is therefore important that only the organizations most deserving of the grant should receive it.

Final Project Planning Report

...GLADSTONE AIRPORT PROJECT PLANNING REPORT PROJECT PLANNING REPORT Upgrade of Gladstone Airport Background Gladstone Airport services the Gladstone region located some 500 kilometres north of Brisbane and comprising three former local government areas – the harbour city of Gladstone, and the Calliope and Miriam Vale shires. The airport is currently operated by the Gladstone Regional Council following recent council amalgamations and dissolution of the Gladstone-Calliope Aerodrome Board on 14 March 2008. The airport caters primarily for business travellers and freight activities associated with the region’s developed and emerging industrial complexes. Regular public transport (RPT) services are currently provided by QantasLink utilising primarily Dash 8 Series Q400 aircraft. Continuing growth can be expected with over $14 billion worth of projects committed and/or planned in the next 5 years and with large scale stocks of land set aside for longer term expansion in the Gladstone State Development Area. Since 1998 airport expansion has been guided by a Development Plan which the Aerodrome Board updated in 2004 to take particular account of current and likely future aircraft types and stronger growth in passenger numbers than previously forecast. The forecasts prepared for the 2004 plan envisaged that the majority of RPT services would be provided in the short term by the Dash 8-300 aircraft and in the medium to long term by regular scheduled services by 70 seat aircraft such......

...BUSN460 Senior Project Final Report and Presentation Guide Overview: The object of this course and this project is to provide you with a realistic situation that you are likely to face in the real world business environment. You'll be working with limited information, limited support from your client, within a limited time frame - and yet, you have to get up to speed in a new area quickly, and make informed professional recommendations based on your research and analysis. You and your team have been hired by CanGo as consultants to help them improve their fast-growing business. The management team at CanGo is busy, not entirely organized and somewhat overwhelmed by their success. They are looking to you as an objective, intelligent, experienced business person - and to your combined experience as a team to help them figure out what they should do in several areas of their business. CanGo can provide very little guidance to you - if they knew what they were doing they wouldn't have asked you for help! CanGo is your customer, and they are paying you a great deal of money, so the tone of your work on the project should be that of information addressed to the Board of Directors of this company, and it should be the best professional work of your (academic) career. You should approach this project as if your job depended on it - as if it were paying your mortgage and grocery bill. This project is your new job. In previous courses you have been given specific guidelines,......

...Final Lab Report James Dillon SCI 207: Dependence of Man on the Environment Instructor: Jessica Bostock February 20, 2016 Final Lab Report Abstract The experiments conducted for this lab report focused on water contamination and filtration. Experiment 1 was effects of groundwater contamination. Oil, vinegar, and laundry detergent were added to clean water with no means of filtration. The clean water was found to be contaminated. A filtration system consisting of cheesecloth and 60 ml of soil was created and the contaminated samples were filtered through it. The soil and cheese cloth did not affectively filter the contaminants. Experiment 2 focused on water treatment and a filtration system using cheesecloth, sand, activated charcoal, alum, and gravel was created. The contaminated water sample was created by mixing soil and water together. After the contaminated water was put through the filtration system and a few drops of bleach were added you could see that much of the sediment was filtered out, but an overwhelming bleach smell remained. The third experiment was to determine drinking water quality. Samples of Dasani and Fiji bottled water were compared to my local tap water. Test strips were used to determine each samples ammonia, chloride, alkalinity, chlorine, hardness, phosphate, and iron levels.

Report Final

...accomplishment are taken into consideration in this report, along with the above-mentioned indicator. The question we endeavor to answer in this report is: What factors significantly affect student’s grade point average (GPA). This question has value as it incorporates different aspects that affect a student attending university. To test the hypothesis that the more a student works the less they study therefore affecting their overall marks and GPA (dependent Variable). It is also appropriate that the UAI/ATAR results of a student were added in this model as it can be a great determination of a positive effect for the GPA. In addition to the hypothesis we would also like to test the significance that the gender role played today in our modern world where studies show that there is no difference in academic success due this variable. It is significant to consider and test the relationships between the dependent variable and independent variable to be able to identify if the hypothesis is valid and our model is reliable. Moreover, this report can also aim to help current and future university students balance their university schedule with work and other important factors of life which would ultimately help students priorities their own university program. Our research plan consists of conducting a survey of 50 University of Western Sydney students by asking several questions about their academic profile. The main purpose of this report is to see whether there are......
