What is this civilized thing called writing? Modern linguists define writing as a system of human communication by means of conventional, agreed-upon signals that represent language. The signs must be capable of being sent and received, mutually understood, and they must correspond to spoken words. Each written means began with simple pictures and plain strokes or dots - adequate for recording objects and numbers. Of all the creation of man, writing is our most exquisite intellectual accomplishment. Contrary to a popular belief ,writing was invented not once but possibly as many as six separate times, in very distant places. Man approached writing by lengthy stages: the development of speech; the invention of pictures; the need to reinforce memory by storing information; the realization that pictures could be used for purpose; and finally, the difficult trial and error process of adapting pictures so that they represented the sounds of speech. The Origin of writing is seen through the development of civilizations over certain periods of historical times and places. Though writing developed not much more than 5000 years ago-----only yesterday in the long calendar of man's emergence------its roots, like those of so many other inventions, lie further back in the past. (Clairborne, p.11) Writing was invented in order to record business activities. Certain people needed to be able to keep track and records of various things. It was impossible to rely on a man's memory for every detail, a new method was needed to keep reliable records. As cities grew more complex, so did writing. Over 500 years of evolution the outward appearance and internal structure of writing changed. The social conditions that gave rise to writing are described as a phenomenon called the urban revolution. (Clairborne, p 20). Like speech, of which it is an extension, writing requires the capacity to make mental...

Henrik (Johan) Ibsen (1828-1906) was born at Skien, a small lumbering town of southern Norway. His father was a well-known general merchant in the community until 1836, when he suffered the horrible disgrace of going bankrupt.(Ibsen, 8) As a result, he sank into more debt and the family suffered. There was no redeeming the family misfortunes; as soon as he could, aged just 15, Henrik moved to Grimstad. It was there that he began to write. He supported himself meagerly as an apothecary's apprentice while studying nights for admission to the university. As he waited patiently he began to write plays. It was from this first writing that he began a career that would carry him through the nineteenth century and into today. Writers are often called names. Some of these names aren't so nice. To be called "the father" of something can only mean that you must have what it takes in your writing to define the very term that you are being associated with. Joan Gassner has decided that Henrik Ibsen is "the father of modern drama".(Gassner, 1) But is this title worthy? What is it about Ibsen's work that seems to fit so well into this mold? Also, why is Ibsen so closely tied to realism? These are questions that I hope to answer in the following text. So to begin, we must first define what is realism? From 1859 to 1900 most of the plays that were being produced were melodramas, spectacle plays, comic operas and vaudevilles. (Wilson, 273). The theatre was alive and well and was taking many different forms. And then something happened. Charles Darwin published The Origin of Species in 1859 and began to stir up the scientific community. Darwin believed that people were controlled by heredity and environment and that most of human behavior...

Greenhouse Effect The importance of the greenhouse effect was just conceived in the mid-twentieth century. "For billions of years, cosmic forces shaped Earth, and land and air coevolved at an almost inconceivably slow pace to create a climate in which human beings and other creatures could flourish." (Franscesca Lyman). Now, for the first time, humanity has the power to change the global climate. By releasing the huge amounts of carbon stored in fossil fuels over millions of years, we are distorting the natural carbon cycle. We are intensifying the natural greenhouse effect and turning it into a "planetary menace" when it actually makes human life possible. Thus, the German climatologist Wilfred Bach writes, "The carbon-dioxide problem becomes a central question for the co-existence of humans and the survival of mankind." If we do not deal with our problems now, such as global warming, the consequences will amplify and the consequences could mean our health, our life, our future. Could we, as humans, mend what we have destroyed? From the words of J.Stephen Bottum, "Constructive action begins with an understanding of what's causing the problem and what each of us can do about it." The greenhouse effect has been described by Vice President Al Gore as the potentially most dangerous environmental problem facing mankind, with consequences second only to nuclear war (The Greenhouse Trap). The greenhouse effect can be visualized as follows: Imagine the Earth has been encircled by a giant glass sphere. The heat penetrates through the glass. Some of the heat is absorbed by the Earth and some is radiated back towards space. The radiated heat reaches the glass sphere and is prevented from dispersing any further. Similarly, the Earth is surrounded by a blanket of gas which traps energy in the atmosphere. This results in the overall warming of the...

Introduction In this century, many believe technology will triple. This means that we will have more technological advances than in the past. We already have the ability to buy groceries, cars, clothing, and even houses without going anywhere. This remarkable invention is know to us as the internet. Billions of U.S. dollars is spent on online advertising and shopping every year. This is because of intergrated marketing communications. While every manager knows single focus, clear cut company strategies and selling messages are important, most firms, because of their functional organizational structures, still tend to send disparate messages to the outside world. Worse, they miss the opportunity to gain the full value for their marketing dollar that intergrated programs can provide (Schultz 3). Purpose and Scope From looking at statistics and percentages, and gatherings of scholary journals, its is a fact that in today's age, marketing departments of large retailers must be on the web. It would be detrimental to a company's business if they didn't offer this fast and effective way to their products. This paper will discuss the developments of intergrated marketing communications with online shopping and advertising. Online Shopping Competing with In-store shopping Call it laziness, call it what you will, but more and more Americans are shopping while sitting down. Online shopping now accounts for as much as 23% of sales and the sales are growing 30%-40% a year while offline retail has only grown about 4% (Vogelstein, para.2). Catalouges are now out and the trendy thing to do is shop online. Many large retail chains are using the web to promote their store and vice versa. Barry Judge, vice-president for consumer marketing at Best Buy explains, "That's the future. In order to be world-class, we need to be the best in both the physical and virtual space" (Tsao, para.7). Educated Customers Wal-Mart directs its...

Management 4322 Professor Chao, Chiang Jin Chung Tina Fogg Marie Desimone Richard Lee Claudia Rubino Francesca Vicari Online Banking (Citibank) INTRODUCTION The use of computers and Internet in today's society makes life much more convenient for everyone. This case proves the point that online banking as services are becoming more trusted with the increase in popularity. Also, consumers are finding financial services more suitable with Internet banking. Thus, as result, online banking is spreading like wildfire. As the number of consumers using the Internet expands, banks have to keep up with the demand and provide quality products and services online. Along with this, many users of online banking feel a sense of freedom that these new services offer them. Due to some of its benefits, financial services have never been as simple as they are with online banking. One key advantage, among others, is that consumers can access their accounts from any computer with the Internet around the world. However, like anything else, online banking has its disadvantages as well as advantages. LITERATURE REVIEW What is Online Banking? Online banking is just what it sounds like. You access a bank's web site over the Internet and enter a user ID and password. This gives you access to your account information over a secure server. Service for online banking is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. You no longer have to rush to the bank at lunchtime or stand in line-ups in the bank or at the ATM, just to find out information about the availability of your funds. While a number of the largest banks have gone to the Web and introduced free online banking to attract new customers and allow existing consumers to manage accounts online, not much else has changed, according to Bankrate.com's fifth semiannual Checking Account Pricing Study (Buckham). Some online banking services are free while others have...

America Online The internet, what was once a small computer network used by scientists and researchers, has become very popular over the years. Over 147 million people now use the internet worldwide and 79 million of them live in the United States (Corrections Today, 1999). Both computers and the internet are very accessible for the majority of society. The internet can be accessed at jobs, schools, and in homes for a very cheap price of $20 a month or even less for unlimited access to the internet. For most students, access to the internet is free so the majority of the users in the United States do not find themselves paying for internet service. The internet provides us with unlimited information and is a very popular form of communication for people throughout the world, especially in the U.S. The great thing about the internet is that all communication is instantaneous. The internet offers service 24 hours a day anywhere in the world, so anyone can have access to it anytime and anywhere. All someone needs to do is simply press a button and the amount of information that you can access is limitless. People communicate on the internet through chat rooms, e-mail, mailing lists, and mainly through web sites that people create. The possibilities are endless with the internet and they will continue to grow more and more as the amount of users increase. The users of the internet range from little kids to teenagers and all the way up to the elderly. It does not matter how young or old you are, anyone has access to the internet. Another aspect of the internet is that there are no limitations set on the use and content of what can be found online. This is a positive feature but there is also a...

Although the basic definition of online marketing as written in the Marketing Management book by Kotler remains the same till this day, many of the processes are no longer that applicable to the local scene. First of all the Philippines has no online commercial service like AOL. Some companies have tried in the past such as GOL Philippines a Korean company, which tied up with the local ISP Mozcom, but they all failed in creating the mass number in order to be a profitable community. Kotler used the term electronic storefronts, which connote a 'store' selling a merchandise or service, such as Amazon. He writes that " many home pages serve as electronic storefronts that offer users a wide variety of information." A more appropriate term in the context of Online Marketing being discussed would be an Online Portal or Gateway since the company website could act as a 'doorway' to information, catalogues, company news and reports, brochures, company employment, community discussion, and a lot more. Many local companies who tried selling their Online Marketing services failed having just copied western ways and not able to fast adapt to what the local culture demanded. There was a Philippine Marketing newsgroup formed in order to discuss and learn about trends in online marketing. Sad to say it was just good for two years and nothing much happened despite talks of having IAB approval and the like. The list owner from International Data System (selling online info) had to move out of the dotcom business. His co moderator, marketing in charge of DFNN moved away from his online marketing task in the company. DFNN then sold a large part of its content to INQ7.net and this is now known as INQ Money. It is only INQ7.net, which is still successfully able to maintain its reputation as a...
