When we were young life was easier, right? I know sometimes it seems that way. But the truth is life still is easy. It always will be. The only difference is we’re older, and the older we get, the more we complicate things for ourselves.
You see, when we were young we saw the world through simple, hopeful eyes. We knew what we wanted and we had no biases or concealed agendas. We liked people who smiled. We avoided people who frowned. We ate when we were hungry, drank when we were thirsty, and slept when we were tired...

Anyone who has ever tried to lead people will tell you leadership is more like art than science. And as with art, perfecting the craft of leadership requires studying under a master. Of course, an aspiring leader must have a foundation of communication, decision-making, and problem-solving skills, but owning the tools and knowing how to use them to maximum effect are two different things. The blogosphere is full of leaders with either outstanding leadership knowledge or strong writing ability, but far fewer have both. These 25 bloggers earn our endorsement as the best of the best.

GENERAL OUTLINE OF THE RESEARCH REPORT
The Preliminaries/Front Matter
1. Abstract—A brief summary which restates the problem, the procedures, the main findings, and the major conclusions. It is usually about 200 words or less in length. It is considered optional unless the report or journal format specifically calls for it.
2. Title—The title, in effect, serves as part of the abstract and should, within a reasonable length, be descriptive of the study.
3. Copyright notice—copyright protection is effective for the life of the author plus seventy years. All publications automatically receive copyright protection, but there are possible advantages to be gained from actually registering a publication with the Copyright Office.

6.List of tables (where needed).
7.List of figures (graphic illustrations other than tables).

a. Hypothesis(es) and/or research questions
b. Assumptions—These basic assumptions help to support the logic of
c.Operational definitions of important concepts
4. Design of the study—The design of the study is broader than the basic research method (e.g., survey), which should already be apparent at this point. The description of the design should be clear and precise about what was done and how it was done.
a. The population and sampling procedures, if any—This section should include a description of the research locale or setting if important.
b. Sources of relevant data, including criteria for admissibility
c. Data collection techniques and instruments
d. Data analysis techniques.
a. Descriptive statistics, if utilized
b. Inferential statistics—The section where hypotheses, if any, are tested

Books in ASB library are arranged by subject using the Dewey Decimal Classification system. Each subject is given a number called a Call number, and the books are then shelved in numerical order.
The Dewey Decimal Classification divides all knowledge into ten main subject areas, which are each assigned a range of numbers:
000 – 099 General subjects, computing
100 – 199 Philosophy, psychology
200 – 299 Religion
300 – 399 Social sciences
400 – 499 Language
500 – 599 Natural sciences, mathematics
600 – 699 Technology (applied sciences)
700 – 799 Arts, entertainment
800 – 899 Literature
900 – 999 History, geography
The main subject areas are subdivided into smaller and smaller sections, giving more specific subjects like:
600 Technology (applied sciences)
610 Medical sciences and medicine
620 Engineering & allied operations
640 Home economics & family living
650 Management & auxiliary services
660 Chemical engineering
680 Manufacture for specific uses
620 Engineering & allied operations
640 Home economics & family living
650 Management & auxiliary services
660 Chemical engineering
680 Manufacture for specific uses
and again subdivided into ...
650 Management & auxiliary services
- 650.1 Personal success in business
- 651.3 Office management
- 651.5 Records management
- 651.7 Communication Creation and transmission of records
- 651.8 Data processing Computer applications
- 652.3 Typewriting
- 652.5 Word processing
654 not used
655 not used
656 not used
658 General management
- 658.1 Organization and finance
- 658.2 Plant management
- 658.3 Personal management
- 658.4 Executive management
- 658.5 Management of production
- 658.7 Management of materials
- 658.8 Management of distribution (Marketing)
Every DDC call number begins with a three-digit whole number, and some are followed by decimal numbers. The second part contains three letters called book number.So a call number is the combination of both Class number and Book Number.
DDC Call Number
|The Declaration of Independence
|by the United States of America
- The first number, 9, places the book in the 900s which is History & Geography,
- The second number, 7, places the book in the 970s which is General History of North America,
- The third number, 3, places the book the in 973s which is United States,
- The fourth number, 3, places the book the in 973.3s which is Revolution and confederation, 1775-1789,
- Thus 973.3 is used for materials about the
American revolution and confederation which occurred between 1775
The second line identifies the author of the work by using the first three letters of the author's last name, or the corporate name. In this example, the author is a group or corporate entity with no "last name," so the first three letters of the whole name are used, UNI.
When using the call number, treat the number that precedes the decimal/period/full stop as a whole number, and that which follows it as a decimal number. Therefore, 091 comes before 910, and 940.13 comes before 940.3. Letters on the second line are read alphabetically.
DDC Numbers Arranged in Alpha-Numeric Order
