3-Sebagai jalan untuk meluaskan perniagaan dan promosi
Astro juga dapat menjana pendapatan daripada rancangan dan saluran yang disiarkan.
Iklan yang disiarkan juga platform untuk meluaskan perniagaan dan juga sebagai promosi. Ada beberapa cara untuk meluaskan pasaran bisnes anda seperti menggunakan media cetak ataupun tv dan radio untuk mempromosikan perniagaan anda. Tetapi, media-media tersebut amatlah mahal dan tidak mampu bagi peniaga-peniaga kecil dan sederhana. Mana-mana usahawan yang berjaya dalam promosikan bisnes secara mengiklankan di tv menawarkan faedah yang besar kepada perniagaan berbanding dengan medium lain. Sebagai contohnya, D’HERBS yang meluaskan perniagaannya melalui iklan di kaca TV dan rancangan TV dengan menggunakan trademark “Produk D’HERBS terlajak laris!”. Seterusnya rancangan realiti di siaran Astro juga turut mempromosikan barangan secara komersial terutama sekali apabila produk tersebut menjadi penaja bagi program tersebut. sebagai contoh, dalam kebanyakan program masakan cara yang digunakan untuk meluaskan perniagaan melalui produk yang digunakan seperti ADABI,RAMLEE dan pelbagai produk masakan.

Contoh program yang membuka jalan dan peluang kepada respon untuk memajukan diri malahan membuka perniagaan.Program ini juga menerapkan nilai—nilai positif dalam usaha seperti kerjasama malah dapat mengubah masyarakat lebih kepada tamadun.

...History of Radio Telescopes Describe the development of single dish radio telescopes and advantages of radio interferometers. Discuss major discoveries that were possible after detection of radio waves from space and how they changed our understanding of Universe. The development of single dish radio telescopes has facilitated a wider range of astronomical discovery through improvements to the instruments by which radio astronomers study celestial objects at radio frequencies. Radio waves are a type of electromagnetic radiation, and differ from ordinary visible light due to a longer wavelength and lower frequency. Engineer Karl Guthe Janksy is associated with the first radio antenna built in 1931 to identify astronomical radio sources. This involved an arrangement of reflectors and diploes, or pairs of equal and oppositely magnetized poles separated by a distance, intended to receive short wave radio signals. Labelled “Janksy’s Merry Go Round” due to its position on a turntable, Janksy monitored his instrument over several months and was able to measure the length of an astronomical sidereal day, which is the time it took for a fixed object located on the celestial sphere to return to the same location in the sky. Most notably, was his serendipitous discovery of the Milky Way in 1933 through comparison of his observations with optical astronomical maps, and eventual conclusion that the radiation source peaked when his antenna was aimed at the densest part of the Milky......

...Astronomy 122 Third Homework Submission Template 1. Stellar Parallax: When you launch the simulator it should come up like this: Then click: Specify a catalog and chose 30 bright stars from the drop down menu and then also check, “specify a star”. Your screen now looks like this: You are to select two stars for this exercise – GL171.1 and GL 244. Upon selecting a star, click on step 2 - Measure Stellar Parallax to get this measuring screen – every 6 months a measurement is made and plotted in what is called “Error Histogram”. These errors are caused by making measurements through our atmosphere. You need to wait until you have about 40 measurements until you have a reasonable certain average value in the error histogram. That average value is the stellar parallax angle for that star. Once you know this angle the distance to the star (and hence its luminosity) can be determined. Enter your answers to the questions below in the provided table (the response cell will expand with your typing) Question: Your Response a) What are the angles for GL 244 and GL 171.1 GL 244= 0.393 GL 171.1 = 0.043 b) Which one of these two stars has the more accurate determination of the parallax and why? GL 244 has the more accurate determination because it is much closer and has a much higher parallax then GL 171.1. c) Explain selecting only the brightest stars in the sky for parallax measurements would give you a biased sample There needs to be less bright stars or more......

Case 1 Astro

...Question 1- For the following investments, determine if Astro should record an other-than-temporary impairment as of December 31, 2014, and if so, for what amount: * Happy New Year & Co. * Beary Beary * Buy-A-Lot Company According to ASC 320-10-35-30, the securities held in Happy New Year & Co. are not other than temporary. The codification states that the entity has to intend to sell the security, as well as, not expect to recover the entire amortized cost basis of the security. Happy New Year & Co. do not intend to sell the security because they believe that the decline in price is permanent. The policy that Beary Beary has in place states that they are required to sell this security when the price drops below $90. The price of this security at December 31, 2014 is at $88, which is below the $90 policy. Although Beary Beary is still holding on to this investment while it is violating the policy, the policy means that they are intending to sell this security. In ASC 320-10-35-34B, the Other-than-temporary amount recorded is the full amount of the amortized cost basis minus the fair value amount. This makes the other than temporary loss amount recorded in earnings $8. As part of ASC 320-10-35-30, it states that a security is other than temporary if the entity does not expect to recover the entire amortized cost basis of the security. This is the case with the security that Astro holds in Buy-A-Lot Company. However this security is not classified......

This new planet is located on the Perseus Arm of our galaxy. Today our world (Earth) is over populated, highly polluted, and is running out of natural resources to sustain our growing society. We discovered Astro Nova in hopes that one day mankind would be able to inhabit this planet to better our population. Today our dream has become a reality. Astro Nova’s location is a bit farther from earth than expected. It is 7,500 Light Years away. Given that it is that far you may ask what the conditions are like. A normal day for Astro Nova is warm and sunny. Close to the days and seasons we have on earth. There is two land masses on this aquatic planet which only one can sustain life. The land mass that does not sustain life is a volcanic mass which we can use to foster many natural resources. Most of the natural resources we use today for building, producing money, oil etc. Will be able to be mined from this land. On the land ass that will be sustaining our society. There is farming which will take place by using mostly hydroponics. Hydroponics is the method of growing plants in water rather than using soil. The only impact on the location of our planet due to social structures would be that not many people are willing to travel that far.

Houston Astros

...MLB’s International Expansion Thomas Cyhan June 25, 2012 Nina Campanicki   The Major League Baseball team, Houston Astros was founded in 1962, known as the Colt .45s. However the process in creating this team took nearly a decade before they were able to throw out their first pitch as a MLB franchise. MLB refused consideration on multiple occasions to expand the National League from eight to ten teams until other potential owners would form a new baseball league called the Continental League to compete against the National League. Starting baseball operations in 1962, the Colt .45s changed their name in 1965 to the Houston Astros when Judge Roy Hofheinz became sole owner of the team. Houston was renamed the Astros to honor the city’s location as the nation’s space station. Since the Astros were created they have played in three stadiums; Colt Stadium from 1962 to 1964, the Astrodome from 1965 to 1999 and in their current home Minute Maid Park from 2000 to present time. Houston has only made it to the World Series once back in 2005 by defeating the St. Louis Cardinals, but lost to the Chicago White Sox in four games. The Astros have had some success in the late 90’s but still have not won a World Series. The team was sold in 2011 to Jim Crane for $610 million dollars. Originally the price tag for the franchise and 45% of the team’s new regional contract was $680 million but the team was discounted because in 2013 the team will be moving from the National League to......
