Good afternoon,

Thank you for once again allowing me the opportunity to assist you. The following is the essay that you requested:

The History of Broadcasting

The amazing journey and development of broadcasting began with radio transmissions that carried a series of dots and dashes for wireless telegraphy. Even though it is true that the telegraph was the first device that was able to provide electronic communication to individuals it was actually the invention of the radio that is considered by most to be the start of what has transformed into our current day broadcasting and communication methods.

Radio broadcasting began experimenting in 1906 and then went on to begin transmissions commercially in 1920. Reginald Fessenden is credited with using one of the first signals to carry voice and music . He used the radio signals to broadcast to ships at sea on Christmas Eve. He broadcast from Massachusetts and played, "O Holy Night" on his violin and also read passages from the bible.

It is interesting to point out that when Reginald Fessenden completed his broadcast to the ships at sea his financial backers actually lost interest in the project. In the very beginning of broadcasting, this concept was very new and considered by many to be highly unusual. Until this time, the telegraph was the usual method of communication, which was a one to one method of communicating, not a one to many style of communicating. Many people, especially those responsible for the financial backing of broadcasting as a one to many style considered this to not be a practical method.

One man who many consider to be vital in the history of broadcasting and communication was David Sarnoff. Early in his life and career, Sarnoff predicted that radio broadcasting would be the next medium of communication between mass levels of people. Despite the fact that he was correct, he was highly criticized. In 1915, David Sarnoff said that the concept of a radio music box was the new and lasting way of broadcasting across the land.

During the early 1900's there were very few organizations that believed that this radio music box, as it was referred to, was the wave of the future, and not a fad. Westinghouse was the most well known organization that continued to advance the concept of radio transmissions. In 1926, The National Broadcasting Company began regular broadcasting with telephone links between New York and other major Eastern cities. NBS became the dominant system in 1927 and was headed by William S. Paley. He became the chief executive who transformed the Columbia Broadcasting System, referred to as CBS, from a small radio network into one of the worlds most dominant radio and television networks operations within the United States. Paley is considered a pioneer in the history of radio broadcasting. His vision for the future was not an accepted concept by many in the communication and business industry. It was an up hill battle for many years in the beginning of his career, but, he did not give up. Paley changed the model for broadcsting by developing a successful and profitable broadcast programming but, by also viewing advertisers as the most significant factor in making broadcasting successful and possible. He understood how important sponsorship was in broadcasting.

Two men that also had a significant role in the developemnt of radio broadcasting were Heinrich Hertz and Guglielmo Marconi. Hertz was responsible for demonstrating that a person could produce and detect electromagnetic radiation, which is what is now referred to as radio waves. This was unheard of in 1888 when Heinrich Hertz began these experiments. Heinrich Hertz's work intrigued interest in Marconi who was quite interested in the fields of science and electricity. Marconi developed what was referred to as, Marconi's Law and the radio telegraph system. He is often referred to as the inventor of the radio.


Another man who is often referred to as a pioneer in the radio and broadcasting field was Lee De Forest. In 1916 he broadcast the first radio advertisements, using his own products. He also was responsible for broadcasting the first Presidential election report by radio in November 1916. This was done for XXXXX XXXXX Hughes and Woodrow Wilson. A few years later, DeForest went on to sponsor radio broadcast of music that featured the opera star Enrico Caruso. DeForest work and advancements in the radio field where connected to another man, Edwin Howard Armstrong. He was and American Engineer and inventor who many have referred to as also being quite influential in the history and development of radio. Armstrong was the inventor of modern frequency modulation radio transmission, which is what we referr to as FM transmission. Armstrong was able to use DeForest's work and then take it several steps forward and basically move radio reception to the clearest type of transmissions known.

In 1943, as a result of a supreme court decision, the Blue Network became known as the American Broadcasting Company, referred to as ABC. In 1946, ABC, NBC, and CBS began regular television broadcasting. The journey from a single radio transmission on a Christmas Eve night to having three major broadcasting networks was difficult, with many who doubted this was not a waste of time. However, once the interest in broadcasting was realized and profits were also incurred, what was once a passing idea transformed into the start of a mega industry. During the 1950's and the 1960's television began to replace radio as the main source of revenue for broadcasting networks. Another major milestone in the history of broadcasting also occurred in the 150's,and that was when television networks introduced broadcast that were in color. The first network colorcast was on January 1, 1954, with NBC broadcasting the annual Tournament of Roses Parade in Passadena California.

As broadcasting on television grew in demand and popularity each year more and more new organizations wanted to become a part of this growing industry. In the 1980's, The Federal Communications Commission changed the rules that limited the number of radio and television stations a business entity could own in one metropolitan area. This was done under the Reagan Administration with pressure from Congress. The deregulation led to many new groups emerging, such as Infinity Broadcasting and Clear Channel buying many stations in larger cities.

The 2000s decade was introduced to digital radio and direct broadcasting by satellite. Two American companies, XM and Sirius have become the two major broadcasters within the United States of Satellite broadcasting.

What began as a one to one communication between two people gradually changed to a one to many transmission and communicaiton and has continued to be a vital element of our society and our daily lives. Radio broadcasting and, as an extension, television broadcasting, has changed the way we live and learn about what is going on in the world, the way that we stay connected to people, and how we are entertained.

Central Engineering (How
management practices can hamper decision-making)

 

 

 

Henry and
Jami Wolfram, a husband and wife team, owned and operated Central Engineering,
a heating and air conditioning firm located in Huntsville, Alabama. The business prospered during the six years
that they owned it, and it served both residential and commercial accounts

 

 

 

Organizational Structure

 

The diagram
below is the simple organizational structure of the firm. Henry serves as general operations
manager. As the business grew, more and
more responsibility for owner shoulders.
Although Jami assumed some of the burden by acting as treasurer and
supervising the office work, Henry is personally involved in most of the key
decisions. Henry's son, Jeff Wolfram,
started at Central Engineering as a worker on an installation crew. Later he moved into a position of estimator-salesperson
and acted as manager whenever his father was out of town.

The Bottleneck

 

An
unfortunate consequence of Henry's growing workload was the creation of a
bottleneck at the very top of the business.
Since he was a key person, his judge seemed indispensable to many
actions. As a result decisions are
sometimes delayed waiting for is attention.
Others in the organization sometimes found themselves waiting in line to
get a chance to talk with him. And Henry
found himself rushed with insufficient time to think carefully about some
aspects of the business. In addition he
would have liked to devote a little more time to family, church, and personal
interests.

 

 

 

Review of Customer Billing

 

One task that
required Henry's attention was his personal review of invoices before they were
sent to customers. When a management
consultant asked why this was necessary, the following dialog to place:

 

 

 

Henry:
I really need to take a last look before bills are sent out. For example on
construction jobs there may be additions or extras that were included after we
made the original bid.

 

Consultant:
On regular service calls is there a similar chance of an error?

 

Henry:
That's right. For instance, maybe the
worker left something off the work order.
The worker may say that he has done this and that, but, on the materials
list he has some items that don't match up or that are missing from what he
said he's done.

 

Consultant:
Can you tell me how many hours in a day or week are required for this activity?

 

Henry:
Well it cuts into a lot of time. This is part of another problem. The office is open with Jeff and his
customers in the same office with me. I
just don't have a place where I can concentrate on this type of work. I think that when we get that physical
arrangement changed it will help some.

 

Consultant:
So how many hours a week does this take?

 

Henry:
Sometimes we stay here at night or come in on Saturday to do this. But I suppose it might run eight to ten hours
a week.

 

Consultant:
Is there anybody else who could do this?

 

Henry:
Well on service calls Jami usually spots such discrepancies. She's getting enough experience that she can
recognize them.

 

Consultant:
What is Jeff's role? Could he do this?

 

Henry:
He is an estimator and does sales work.
He doesn't quite have the experience yet. He might be close to being capable. But he's pretty busy. Also, I have a service manager who could
catch a lot of these things when the orders are turned in. But he doesn't manage that carefully. I have a more aggressive manager in
installation who is better at catching things like this.

 

 

 

The general
theme in Henry's discussion with the management consultant was the difficulty
of resolving the time management problem.
Henry recognized the burden placed on him personally and on the
business, but there seemed to be no obvious answer at this stage in the life of
the firm.

 

 

 

Review of Accounts Payable

 

Henry also
took a look over all payments being made by accounts payable. His discussion
with a management consultant regarding this function follows:

 

Henry: these
payments need to be checked over because we may be charged too much on some
bills.

 

Consultant:
How does this happen?

 

Henry:
On particular jobs, we may get special pricing.
Say I'm working on a bid. I may
pick up the phone and say to the supplier, ‘We need some special pricing. Here's what we're up against, and we need
special pricing me get this job. ", and if they give us the special pricing we
should pay accordingly.

 

Consultant:
And you can't depend on them to bill you at that special price?

 

Henry:
I don't think its anything intentional.
But they give it to their clerks to bill and they may and may overlook a
special pricing that was promised. If we don't catch it, we lose it.

 

 

 

Henry's Dilemma

 

The
responsibilities relative to accounts receivable and accounts payable were
typical of the overall situation. In many aspects of the business, Henry felt
compelled to give his personal attention to the issues and the decisions that
need to be made. In a sense, he felt trapped by the very success and work that
accompanied the operations of business.
He enjoyed the work, every minute of it, but occasionally he wondered
why there was no obvious solution to his dilemma

 

 

 

The following ‘areas of concern' are provided
to help stimulate your thinking for this case.
They are not intended to provide a list of questions to answer:

 

 

 

Is
Henry Wolfram's personal involvement in the various specific aspects of the
business necessary? Has it become a
matter of habit or simply enjoying doing business that way? What changes would be necessary to extricate
Henry from the verifying customer's invoices and vendor's checks before they
are mailed?

 

 

 

If
you were the consultant, what changes would recommend? Write a proposal for Henry that identifies
the areas of concern and your recommended plan of action and controls to
monitor the plans success.

  • Case Study
    Instructions



Background and Instructions:



In
recent years, honeybee colonies have been experiencing "Colony Collapse
Disorder" (CCD). Given the key role of honeybees in pollinating our
agricultural crops, it has become a serious issue. Many causes for the collapse
of honeybee colonies are currently being investigated. The potential causes
include viruses, parasites, urban sprawl, pesticides, and other environmental
pollutants. Examine the phenomenon of CCD from a toxicological standpoint by
researching three groups of chemicals that are being investigated as potential
contributors to CCD: Antibiotics, miticides, and neonicotinoid pesticides.



The
assigned Case Study for this course deals with the phenomena of "Colony
Collapse Disorder" in honeybee populations, and should include the following
components:




    • A brief introduction of the phenomenon.

    • Background information on the groups of chemicals
      pertinent to the Case Study.

    • Analysis of the key potential causes of the phenomena.

    • Summary of the article's conclusions and your own
      opinions on the potential causes for the phenomena.





Write
a 4-5 page analysis (double spaced, 12 pt. type) of the potential causes listed
above, and then discuss your opinion regarding which, if any, is the most
likely cause. If you do not believe any of these chemicals are contributing to
CCD, provide a brief discussion about what you believe to be the cause.
Information resources can be gathered from the journals and articles available
in our CSU Library Databases. Be sure to provide both in-text references as
well as the full citations in APA format at the end of your analysis. Include a
cover page and brief abstract for your analysis (these pages are not to be
included in the total 4-5 page requirement).



The Case Study assignment

Expert are not allowed to answer multiple questions on one link, and I have already done that on this link, so I do not want to get into trouble.

Here's what you do to guarantee that I receive these two assignments:
Post the questions, and make sure to type, "For Lisa K. only" before the question. Each assignment needs to be posted separately.

As long as I receive these by this evening, I will promise to have these posted for you early tomorrow evening, Friday, may 31st.

I have a funeral to attend today, so I will not be on line. But, as long as your type "For Lisa K. only" before the questions, I will receive them. I will let you know once I receive them.

Have a great day,
Lisa

That is entirely up to you. I am not aloud to discuss price, except to say that the experts only get a portion of the total price. so, please keep that in mind.
