Text Box: CALL FOR PROPOSALS
(Fund by the European Commission)

The ongoing outbreaks of H5N1 Avian Influenza in Indonesia have had a significant impact. Since August 2003, more than 10 million livestock have been affected and the H5N1 virus has crossed the species barrier resulting in at least 135 confirmed human cases with 110 deaths. Moreover, the potential exists for the H5N1 Avian Influenza virus to trigger a human pandemic.

Research on clinical disease, virology and epidemiology of H5N1 in Indonesia is needed to understand the ecology and variability in transmission to human. To foster essential research, WHO requests for proposal that will then be evaluated through a review process. The awards will then be made to compentent researchers and institutions focused on research of local scientists and public health professionals. Areas for research include:

1. Studies of disease ecology, transmission, and epidemiology.
2. Studies of clinical spectrum and management of disease.

Detailed information of call for proposal, include: application and assessment process, assessment criteria and deadline of proposal submission, is attached and available at WHO Indonesia Country Office Website.

Elements of the Announcement
Found/Not Found
Details
Opening
Found
An opening that catches the readers eye on what content it is
Contents
Found
The contents are explained very thoroughly about the virus  H5N1 Avian Influenza and its affect it also explains its needs very directly which is a good thing for an announcement
Closing
Found
The closing statement is not as good as the opening or contentas it told us to  visit a website but there is no link for the website although it is mentioned in the “adapted:www…..”
That itself is not a part of the announcement itself as it is a proof on where the maker of this exercise gets its materials.

Elements of the Announcement
Found/Not Found
Details
Opening
Found
By showing what they are proud of
Contents
Found
Thoroughly explained however I do not think that you can use the word “Same” for additional information as its forces the reader to actually analyze it deeply and goes away with the purpose of announcement itself which is to directly explain an information as best and as simply as possible
Closing
Found
Described with the phone number:089922376549837
And the website
which I think is good enough as its stated its information in a direct approach.





































TEXT 4

Elements of the Announcement
Found/Not Found
Details
Opening
Not Found
Goes through the contents directly because there is no heading which greets or attract the reader at a glance
Contents
Found
Explains it very good in the aspects of the subject, and information that is very crucial to the readers
Closing
Not Found
It is not written in the text on what to do if we have an information to  ask. For example to whom should we ask. There isn’t even a closing statement such as goodbye, Thank You,etc.

Rounded Rectangle: Starting from 1st January 2018, we open branches in several big cities such as Medan, Denpasar, Lombok and Makassar. 

It allows the administrative aspect of our business to be conducted in regional locations. It is hoped that we will be able to meet closely with customers and stores in a more effective manner.
