Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kalocsa-Kecskemét

The Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Kalocsa–Kecskemét is an Archdiocese of the Latin Rite of the Roman Catholic Church in Hungary. Since 1993, its official name is Archdiocese of Kalocsa-Kecskemét; the diocese is the metropolitan of the Diocese of Szeged-Csanád. The patron saint is Saint Paul; the current archbishop is Balázs Bábel, appointed in 1999. In his monography about the early history of the Archbishopric of Kalocsa, the Hungarian historian László Koszta concludes that the "establishment of the Diocese of Kalocsa is one of the most debated issues of our ecclesiastic history in the Age of the Árpáds". Indeed, several important details of the early history of the episcopal see; the date of its establishment is unknown. According to Hartvik, an early-12th-century biographer of the first king of Hungary, Stephen I, the king "divided his territories into ten bishoprics", making the archbishopric of Esztergom "the metropolitan and master of the others", bestowed "the dignity of the bishop of Kalocsa" on Abbot Astrik.

Astrik, continued Hartvik, was appointed to the see of Esztergom to substitute Archbishop Sebastian who had gone blind, but Asterik "returned to Kalocsa with the pallium" when Sebastian received back his sight three years later. Stephen's earlier hagiography, the longer version of the Life of Saint Stephen, King of Hungary, did not mention this episode and referred to Astrik as archbishop of Esztergom; the cathedral church at Kalocsa was dedicated to Paul the Apostle, renowned for his missionary activities. The patron saint implies that the see was established as a missionary bishopric aimed at the conversion of the so-called Black Hungarians. Most historians developed, they accept that the see of Kalocsa was set up as a bishopric shortly after Stephen I's coronation in the first decade of the 11th century. According to a scholarly hypothesis, not only the lands between the rivers Danube and Tisza, but the southern region of Transdanubia, the Banat were included in the new bishopric. One George was the first archbishop mentioned in a contemporaneous source: in 1050 or 1051 he was one of the prelates who assisted Pope Leo IX to celebrate a mass in Lotharingia.

The Archdiocese of Kalocsa was originally set up as a Bishopric by King Stephen I of Hungary, but it became the second Archbishopric in 1009. Its original suffragans were the bishops of Transylvania. Around 1028 the bishop of the newly established Diocese of Csanád became a suffragan to the Archdiocese of Kalocsa; the Archbishops of Kalocsa were, from the 15th century to 1776, the perpetual counts.

John Wesley Snyder (US Cabinet Secretary)

John Wesley Snyder was an American businessman and senior federal government official. Thanks to a close personal friendship with President Harry S Truman, he became Secretary of the Treasury in the Truman administration, he is the first native-born Arkansan to hold a US Cabinet post. Historian Alonzo Hamby emphasizes Snyder's conservatism, stating that he was skeptical of New Dealism, broad-gauged social programs, intellectuals who believed the economy could be run from Washington. Snyder was born in Jonesboro, Arkansas, on June 21, 1895, to Jeremiah "Jerre" Hartwell Snyder and his wife Ellen,the third of six children, his father owned a small patent medicine manufacturing and distribution business in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Snyder obtained his early education through high school in Jonesboro and attended Vanderbilt University’s School of Engineering from 1914 to 1915; because of finances, he quit and returned to Arkansas, moving to Forrest City, Arkansas where he boarded with his sister, Sula Snyder Warren, taught at a small country school.

Snyder volunteered for the army in 1915 and trained at Fort Logan H. Roots in North Little Rock, Arkansas, in the artillery, he served with distinction as an officer in the Thirty-second Artillery. He saw action during World War I in five different sectors of the Western Front and was decorated for his service by both the United States and France. During his service in the artillery, he became friends with other noted Americans such as boxer Gene Tunney, America’s “ace of aces” fighter pilot Eddie Rickenbacker, future presidents Dwight Eisenhower and Harry S. Truman. Snyder was returned to Arkansas after the war, he retained his commission as a captain and achieved the rank of colonel in the Army Reserve. On January 5, 1920, he married Carrie Evlyn Cook, they had Edith Cook "Drucie" Snyder Horton born in Forrest City, Arkansas. Although he planned to return to school to become an electrical engineer, at the urging of his uncle, Snyder took his first job in the banking industry as a bookkeeper in a bank in Forrest City, Arkansas.

During the next ten years, he advanced in his chosen profession, working as an officer of numerous banks in Arkansas and Missouri. Snyder moved to Washington in the early 1930s with a broad background in business, he held several public and private offices including National Bank Receiver in the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Loan Administrator, Director of War Mobilization and Reconversion. In the last office he played a leading part in the transition of the American economy from a wartime to a peacetime basis. Liberals complained that he removed federal controls on the economy too after the war, hurting consumers, delaying the housing program and bankrupting small businesses, his biographer says, "His handling of the steel crisis in 1946 was an greater fiasco." Snyder was appointed Secretary of the Treasury in 1946 by his close personal friend President Harry S. Truman, with whom he had served in the Army Reserves. Editorials criticized the cronyism and said his narrow range of experience made him unfit for the job.

His task as Secretary was to establish a stable postwar economy. The main points of his program were maintaining confidence in the credit of the government, reducing the federal debt, keeping the interest rate low, encouraging public thrift through investment in U. S. Savings Bonds. A conservative businessman, he had faith that the free economy would work itself out, he reduced the national debt while balancing the budget. He was reluctant to spend large sums on the Marshall Plan of aid to Europe. Snyder had little diplomatic experience, in his negotiations with British leadership regarding Britain's need for dollars, he angered his counterparts. Paul Nitze, an American negotiator, recalled a meeting in Washington in September 1949: at one point Secretary Snyder made some -- well, remarks which I thought were wholly undiplomatic and rude and showed his lack of concern for the UK problem. At another meeting his British counterpart, Chancellor of the Exchequer Hugh Gaitskell, concluded that Snyder was, "a pretty small minded, small town semi-isolationist."

For the British Snyder was outmaneuvered by Secretary of State Dean Acheson, much more sympathetic. Snyder funded the Korean War by increasing taxes, he feuded with the Federal Reserve system, until it became more independent in 1951. He retired from government in 1953 at the end of Truman's second term. Snyder died in Seabrook Island, South Carolina, on October 8, 1985, at the age of 90, was buried in Washington National Cathedral. Fielding, Jeremy. "The primacy of national security?

Student marketing

Student marketing refers to the promotion of products and ideas to the 3 million+ higher and further education student population. Student marketing is realised through student media or ambient marketing on campuses. Student marketing is not the same as Student Union Marketing which concentrates on marketing opportunities only through Student Union and Guild media; this type of media is powered through companies who provide media services for student union bodies as well as the production of their newspapers and website systems. Youth marketing companies that influence student buying behaviour and motivate student spending utilise a variety of mediums and marketing channels to talk to the youth. Marketing material directed at students must overcome several problems: they have little money; however students are an attractive market: while they do have a restricted budget many are living away from home and are therefore making independent choices over which brands to buy for the first time. Hence they are excited about making purchases that would be mundane for older consumers.

Attracting students at this time has huge long run brand loyalty effects. University students make an ideal target market for internet-based companies. Over 99% of students are comfortable using the internet, going online at least once a week, although every day, they don’t have the same fear of the internet as much of the general population when it comes to purchasing goods online – average online spend is 7 times higher than that of the general population. Whilst the working population uses the internet predominantly for work purposes, two-thirds of the time that students spend online is general surfing; when it comes to targeting, students have in the past been considered an elusive group, with much of their time taken up on campus and through socialising. Traditional forms of advertising, such as mainstream radio, TV and billboard advertising campaigns, are not ideal channels for reaching today’s students. Therefore, other media are targeted, such as social media. Marketers can take advantage of students' concentration at geographical locations and use techniques such as campus visits and college street teams.

Students in the UK are estimated to spend over £13 billion a year, making them a key market for consumer brands. With the growth and development of the internet, campaigns have vastly diversified and now include multiple elements from traditional on-campus activity to bluetooth, email, sms and social media. Leading youth brands such as the BBC, Burger King, O2, Red Bull, Virgin, to name a few, are engaging with the UK student market through agencies and media channels who produce the official universities welcome parcels directly into the student bedrooms. A leading factor in the diversification of the market has been the rapid growth in the size of the student market in the UK over recent years, with 1.8 million students now in Higher Education Programmes. With a combined spending power of more than £10 billion and an average student spending over £5,000 each year the student market can be a lucrative one. Students are the most profitable group of 18- to 24-year-olds; some UK universities have moved to ban advertising they consider harmful to students, such as for payday loan companies.

Certain agencies have focused on advertising to college students, such as Student Advantage, which operated a membership-card based program in the 1990s and moved into the internet, which in 1998 bought rival Collegiate Advantage. Other online services such as Student Beans and StudentUniverse provide students with access to student discounts from various retailers and brands
