Merger
MERGERS AND ACQUISITIONS (M&A) are transactions in which the ownership of companies , other business organizations or their operating units are transferred or combined. As an aspect of strategic management , M&A can allow enterprises to grow, shrink, and change the nature of their business or competitive position. From a legal point of view, a MERGER is a legal consolidation of two entities into one entity, whereas an ACQUISITION occurs when one entity takes ownership of another entity's stock , equity interests or assets . From a commercial and economic point of view, both types of transactions generally result in the consolidation of assets and liabilities under one entity, and the distinction between a "merger" and an "acquisition" is less clear

Oscillators
OSCILLATION is the repetitive variation, typically in time , of some measure about a central value (often a point of equilibrium ) or between two or more different states. The term vibration is precisely used to describe mechanical oscillation. Familiar examples of oscillation include a swinging pendulum and alternating current power. Oscillations occur not only in mechanical systems but also in dynamic systems in virtually every area of science: for example the beating human heart , business cycles in economics , predator–prey population cycles in ecology , geothermal geysers in geology , vibrating strings in musical instruments , periodic firing of nerve cells in the brain, and the periodic swelling of Cepheid variable stars in astronomy

Information Technology
INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY (IT) is the application of computers to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data , or information , often in the context of a business or other enterprise. IT is considered to be a subset of information and communications technology (ICT). In 2012, Zuppo proposed an ICT hierarchy where each hierarchy level "contain some degree of commonality in that they are related to technologies that facilitate the transfer of information and various types of electronically mediated communications". The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Several industries are associated with information technology, including computer hardware , software , electronics , semiconductors , internet , telecom equipment , and e-commerce

Electronic Oscillator
An ELECTRONIC OSCILLATOR is an electronic circuit that produces a periodic, oscillating electronic signal, often a sine wave or a square wave . Oscillators convert direct current (DC) from a power supply to an alternating current (AC) signal. They are widely used in many electronic devices. Common examples of signals generated by oscillators include signals broadcast by radio and television transmitters , clock signals that regulate computers and quartz clocks , and the sounds produced by electronic beepers and video games . Oscillators are often characterized by the frequency of their output signal: * A low-frequency oscillator (LFO) is an electronic oscillator that generates a frequency below approximately 20 Hz. This term is typically used in the field of audio synthesizers , to distinguish it from an audio frequency oscillator. * An audio oscillator produces frequencies in the audio range, about 16 Hz to 20 kHz

Fortune 500
The FORTUNE 500 is an annual list compiled and published by Fortune magazine that ranks 500 of the largest United States corporations by total revenue for their respective fiscal years. The list includes publicly held companies , along with privately held companies for which revenues are publicly available. The concept of the Fortune 500 was created by Edgar P. Smith, a Fortune editor, and the first list was published in 1955. The Fortune 500 is more commonly used than its subset Fortune 100 or wider list Fortune 1000 .

Bid Price
A BID PRICE is the highest price that a buyer (i.e., bidder) is willing to pay for a good. It is usually referred to simply as the "bid". In bid and ask , the bid price stands in contrast to the ask price or "offer", and the difference between the two is called the bid–ask spread . An unsolicited bid or purchase offer is when a person or company receives a bid even though they are not looking to sell. CONTENTS * 1 Bidding war * 2 In the markets * 3 References * 4 See also * 5 External links BIDDING WARA BIDDING WAR is said to occur when a large number of bids are placed in rapid succession by two or more entities, especially when the price paid is much greater than the ask price, or greater than the first bid in the case of unsolicited bidding

Great Depression
The GREAT DEPRESSION was a severe worldwide economic depression that took place mostly during the 1930s, originating in the United States . The timing of the Great Depression
Great Depression
varied across nations; in most countries it started in 1929 and lasted until 1941. It was the longest, deepest, and most widespread depression of the 20th century. In the 21st century, the Great Depression
Great Depression
is commonly used as an example of how far the world's economy can decline. The depression started in the United States after a major fall in stock prices that began around September 4, 1929, and became worldwide news with the stock market crash of October 29, 1929 (known as Black Tuesday ). Between 1929 and 1932, worldwide gross domestic product (GDP) fell by an estimated 15%. By comparison, worldwide GDP fell by less than 1% from 2008 to 2009 during the Great Recession

Electrical Engineering
ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING is a professional engineering discipline that generally deals with the study and application of electricity , electronics , and electromagnetism . This field first became an identifiable occupation in the later half of the 19th century after commercialization of the electric telegraph , the telephone , and electric power distribution and use. Subsequently, broadcasting and recording media made electronics part of daily life. The invention of the transistor , and later the integrated circuit , brought down the cost of electronics to the point they can be used in almost any household object. Electrical engineering
Electrical engineering
has now subdivided into a wide range of subfields including electronics , digital computers , computer engineering , power engineering , telecommunications , control systems , radio-frequency engineering , signal processing , instrumentation , and microelectronics

HP200A
The HP200A was the first product made by Hewlett-Packard and was manufactured in David Packard 's garage in Palo Alto, California . It was a low-distortion audio oscillator used for testing sound equipment. It used the Wien bridge oscillator circuit, that had been the subject of Bill Hewlett 's Masters thesis. It was also the first such commercial oscillator to use a simple light bulb as the temperature-dependent resistor in its feedback network. The light bulb was an inexpensive and effective automatic gain control that not only kept the oscillator output amplitude constant, but it also kept the oscillator's loop gain near unity. The latter is a key technique for achieving a low distortion oscillator. Earlier, Meacham had used light bulbs in bridge circuits to stabilize and linearize oscillators in 1938. The product code was chosen to give the impression that HP was an established company. Walt Disney bought eight of them for use in the production of Fantasia
