Malcolm Gladwell’s definition of an outlier is a person that works hard to be successful and its intelligence is far above than an average person.

Similarly, the concept of creativity is very hard to define as Amabile, 1996 (cited in Maley & Bolitho, 2015) states, ‘a clear and sufficiently…

    One major aspect that was changed is that the student would also be scored by creativity and wisdom skills as well. Another is that the test would not penalize the student for being uncreative or having an impractical essay, but would receive additional points if those factors stood out.

    On May 25, 2016, the Manager met with YCWA General Manager Curt Aikens to discuss finalizing the Power Enhancement Agreement. Consistent with the previous meeting with the YCWA POD Committee, the Agency does not wish to explore the splitting of Gross Revenue and is citing several factors as the cause.
