AbstractFrom 1850s to the present time, electronic communications have been evolving from the analog transmission of harmonics over a singular wire connected to boxes with a single hole for transmitting and receiving to texting, FaceTime, Facebook, and twitter. This evolution did not follow a direct path from A to B; instead, it took a winding and interlocking path. This path is represented via a timeline that textually analyzes the data collected, and through graphical interpretation, depicts the history of the path. With this one should be able to see the growth of the enterprises through history, which is shown horizontally, as well as the different variables that affected their growth along the way, depicted vertically. Both of these variables are depicted on one chart, from the same vantage point. This timeline not only shows the path of growth of the technology and its enterprises but also the interrelations of the different enterprises and how either technology, politics, or geographic presence influenced this swath.

A Comparison of the Philosophy and of Teaching of Third Grade Reading According to Houghton Mifflin Company (McKee) the John C. Winston Company (Stauffer) and Ginn & Company (Russell) Basal ReadersThomas, Joy Morris; The College at Brockport (1961-07-28)Presenting students with a variety of learning materials helps to engage their interest. In this study, the researcher evaluates three reading systems to determine which best meets class needs. The researcher begins by comparing the aims/philosophies of the different titles. The researcher then compares the content, focusing on program, illustration format, and organization. Finally, the researcher examines the series’ approaches to introducing new words, teaching word-attack and study skills, and compares the teacher’s editions. The author concludes that she will use the Houghton Mifflin texts with the above-average readers in her class, and the Ginn texts with the below-average readers. Average readers will continue to use the standard texts issued by the School (Scott Foresman).
The Effects of Marketing on Commercial Banks’ Operating Businesses and Profitability: Evidence from US Bank Holding CompaniesChen, Kai (Emerald Publishing, 2020-04)Purpose: This paper aims to explore the role that marketing plays in commercial bank management. Specifically, we examine the effects of marketing activities on banks' operating businesses, i.e. deposit, loan and service businesses. Furthermore, we investigate the effect of marketing activities on bank profitability. Design/methodology/approach: A series of hypotheses about the associations of marketing activities with banks' deposits, loans, services and profitability are developed. The fixed-effects linear model with an AR (1) disturbance is applied on the panel dataset of FR Y-9C reports to test these hypotheses. Findings: The results show that total loans and service proceeds are positively associated with marketing activities, which is measured by banks' advertising and marketing expenses. The effects of marketing activities on loan and service businesses are far-reaching to the second quarter in future. Moreover, the results reveal that profitability, measured as net income over total assets, increases with marketing activities. Practical implications: From the findings of this study, bank managers can learn the strengths and weaknesses of their marketing strategies and therefore better coordinate the marketing resources used in different areas of business. The study provides bank managers with a direction to examine the weaknesses in their marketing management. Originality/value: An issue in bank marketing that has not been explored yet is whether and how marketing activities affect commercial banks' specific businesses, such as deposits, loans and services, and how improvements in the specific businesses further affect bank profitability. This study is the first one to address this fundamental issue in bank marketing. Furthermore, the study provides the supplementary evidence that marketing contributes to commercial banks' profitability.
