This section is a description of the mail survey conducted to identify the most important works in BMOC.
The second section consisted of demographic questions regarding department affiliation, BMOC courses taught, area of degree, professional affiliations, etc.
Demographic questions regarding department affiliation, BMOC courses taught, number of sections taught by participant and by the department as a whole, level of BMOC courses taught, years teaching BMOC courses, and years teaching, other courses taught, academic rank, tenure, highest degree earned, area of degree, and professional affiliations revealed the following results.
The number of sections taught annually in the BMOC schools ranged from one to 204.
In general, most of the respondents from the core disciplines of English, Speech, Public Relations, and Management felt that BMOC is an extension of their discipline and not a separate/interdisciplinary field of study.
If the business school approach to teaching communication assumes that there is no cognitive or strategic component to communication, then it is unlikely that the business schools will take the initiative to encourage the development of rigorous theory and research in BMOC as was done with marketing in the 1960's, finance in the 1970's, or Management Information Systems in the 1908's.
I know BMOC now has a clear mandate from our stockholders to work diligently with all parties to maintain racing at our current location.
WHEREAS, the stock of BMOC and CJC trades on a paired basis on the American Stock Exchange and the stock ownership of BMOC and CJC are identical;
WHEREAS, almost 100% of the combined revenue of BMOC and CJC is attributable to the Bay Meadows Racing Operations conducted at the Bay Meadows Racecourse;
WHEREAS, CJC has entered into agreements to sell a 40 acre parcel contiguous to Highway 101 on which a training track is now situated and the approximately 32 acre parcel consisting of the stable area, and thus BMOC will lose its existing on-site stabiling and training facilities;
WHEREAS BMOC's Board of Directors has concluded that the construction of 900 or more stalls on or contiguous to the Bay Meadows Racecourse is in the best interest of the shareholders of CJC and BMOC, and CJC has not yet provided for the construction of such stalls;
WHEREAS the stockholders of BMOC and CJC believe that the failure to timely provide for the stabling of more than 900 horses on or contiguous to the Bay Meadows Racecourse will adversely affect and may destroy the ability of BMOC to continue to conduct the Bay Meadows Racing Operations in a way substantially similar to the manner in which they are presently conducted and the stockholders of BMOC and CJC believe it is in their best interest that BMOC continue to conduct the Bay Meadows Racing Operations in a way substantially similar to the manner in which it is presently conducted;
