...Define the following terms as they relate to XBRL. 1. Extensible: The XBRL language is able to be extended. Users can add new ideas and phrases to the basic XBRL without changing its fundamental purpose, structures, or existing terminology. This idea is critically important in any discussion of XBRL. The original creators of the language could not possibly have anticipated every term needed by every organization over the course of even a few years-let alone a longer time period. 2. Specification: XBRL is a part of a larger group of languages referred to as XML. One common feature of all XML specifications is their extensible nature; another is their use as markup languages. So, XML consists of a series of descriptors added to various kinds of information that help users make sense of the information. As a specification of XML, XBRL is focused on descriptors of business reporting information-most often, accounting information. 3. Taxonomy: XBL is made up of several taxonomies, which, for the most part, are focused on specific industry groups. For example, the terminology that describes financial information in a manufacturing firm has some significant differences from financial terminology in a government entity. 4. Namespace: A namespace is like an XBRL dictionary. Remember what the X stands for: extensible. So if someone invents a new XBRL term, he or she has to let others know what it means. The meaning of the new term would reside in a namespace. Namespaces...

...CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION TO GLOBAL MARKETING SUMMARY A company that engages in global marketing focuses resources on global market opportunities and threats. Successful global marketers such as Nestle, Coca-Cola, and Honda use familiar marketing mix elements – the four Ps – to create global marketing programs. Marketing, R&D, manufacturing, and other activities comprise a firm’s value chain; firms configure activities to create superior customer value on a global basis. Global companies also maintain strategic focus while pursuing competitive advantage. The marketing mix, value chain, competitive advantage, and focus are universal in their applicability, irrespective of whether a company does business only in the home country or has a presence in many markets around the world. However, in a global industry, companies that fail to pursue global opportunities risk being pushed aside by competitors. A firm’s global marketing strategy (GMS) can enhance its worldwide performance. The GMS addresses several issues. First is nature of the marketing program in terms of the balance between a standardization (extension) approach to the marketing mix and a localization (adaptation) approach that is responsive to country or regional differences. Second is the concentration of marketing activities in a few countries or the dispersal of such activities across many countries. Companies that engage in global marketing can also engage in coordination of marketing activities.......

The fundamental purpose of a life annuity is to provide lifetime income that cannot be outlived. 2. Understand how annuities work. 3. What are common types of annuities?
