Rankings initially appeared as the Agency Billings Report, then Agency Gross Income Rankings and most recently as the Agency Report. Data on this site begin with the 1998 edition, which includes figures for 1996 and 1997. Multi-tiered rankings Agencies and agency companies are ranked on several levels. Agency companies (sometimes holding companies) are the top level. This level may include independent agencies if they are of sufficient size. Consolidated agency networks are the second level. The third level ranks agencies (or agency brands), often by discipline and without regard to the sibling shops in the same ranking. A consolidated agency network may share the same name as an agency brand. Rankings by discipline and the 75% rule Rankings also include specialty disciplines, such as digital, search, direct, promotion, media, health care, African-American, Hispanic and Asian.

Before we get into the subject of gravity and how it acts, it's important to understand the difference between weight and mass.

Your Weight on Other Worlds

We often use the terms "mass" and "weight" interchangeably in our daily speech, but to an astronomer or a physicist they are completely different things. The mass of a body is a measure of how much matter it contains. An object with mass has a quality called inertia. If you shake an object like a stone in your hand, you would notice that it takes a push to get it moving, and another push to stop it again. If the stone is at rest, it wants to remain at rest. Weight is an entirely different thing. If you are in a spaceship far between the stars and you put a scale underneath you, the scale would read zero. The Relationship Between Gravity and Mass and Distance As stated above, your weight is a measure of the pull of gravity between you and the body you are standing on.

The two "M's" on top are your mass and the planet's mass. Making Science Graphs and Interpreting Data. Most scientific graphs are made as line graphs.

Making Science Graphs and Interpreting Data

There may be times when other types would be appropriate, but they are rare. The lines on scientific graphs are usually drawn either straight or curved. These "smoothed" lines do not have to touch all the data points, but they should at least get close to most of them. They are called best-fit lines. In general, scientific graphs are not drawn in connect-the-dot fashon. Identify the graph that matches each of the following stories: I had just left home when I realized I had forgotten my books so I went back to pick them up. How much rain fell in Mar of 1989?
