Q: What's "the Dow"? - G.W., Fresno, Calif.   A: It's the Dow Jones Industrial Average, created in 1896 by Charles Dow, who also established The Wall Street Journal .

Race track development OK'd by planners The Cherry Hill Planning Board has unanimously agreed to approve a revised plan for the development of the former Garden State Park. The plan was submitted by Realen Properties, of Berwyn, a development firm that bought the 225-acre site in December 2000. The race track was closed last year and will be torn down. The plan calls for 1,191 homes - about 600 fewer than originally proposed. There would be two big-box stores instead of three, and some apartments will go above retail shops.

NEW YORK - Shares of Cisco Systems Inc. fell sharply today after the network gear maker warned of a slowdown. Cisco CEO John Chambers told analysts Wednesday that the company was getting "mixed signals" from customers. Cisco is a barometer for technology spending by businesses and offers a more up-to-date picture than many other tech companies because its most recent fiscal quarter ended in July rather than in June. The company's sales forecast for the quarter ending in October is $10.65 billion and $10.83 billion, while analysts are expecting $10.95 billion, according to Thomson Reuters.

For a sports fan, is anything better than being at a live game? TV networks hope so. They're using new software to beam alternative camera shots, player stats, and other extras into fans' smartphones, tablets, and PCs - while also networking ads and collecting viewer data - so home fans can enjoy extra stimulation. Indeed, remote viewing is becoming so sophisticated stadium and team owners are paying companies like Cisco Systems to make those apps and capabilities available to fans at live games, too. "Our viewers are engaging us on two or more screens," Jack Jackson , vice president for digital media product development at NBC Sports Group , told me. "We wanted to go beyond the common box score and provide meaningful insights" beyond what networks can cram on the main screen.

Comcast Corp., the largest U.S. cable company, closed above $100 billion in market capitalization Tuesday for the first time. Since buying a controlling stake in NBCUniversal on Jan. 29, 2011, Comcast has seen its stock increase in price by more than two-thirds. The company has benefited from improving prime-time ratings among 18- to 49-year-olds at the network, which climbed from last place to first this season. Comcast, which has about 22 million cable-TV subscribers, now has a higher market valuation than McDonald's Corp., Home Depot Inc., and Walt Disney Co. And it's closing in on technology heavyweights such as Intel Corp., Cisco Systems Inc., and Qualcomm Inc. Comcast's ascension is emblematic of both a successful acquisition and an industry that has weathered difficult economic times, said Frank Louthan, an analyst at Raymond James & Associates in Atlanta.

How does Congress invest? We wanted to find out how our elected representatives invest their assets - and a new study from the Center for Responsive Politics is a gold mine. Among Congress' favorite portfolio holdings? The top stock was General Electric, with 78 members of both the House of Representatives and the Senate listing the company as their No. 1 investment in 2012, the latest year for which personal financial data are available. After GE, the most popular investments were the following blue-chip stocks: Wells Fargo, Microsoft, Procter & Gamble, Apple, Bank of America, JPMorgan Chase, IBM, Cisco Systems, AT&T, Exxon Mobil, Intel, Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer, Chevron, PepsiCo, Verizon Communications, McDonald's, Qualcomm, Walt Disney Co., Berkshire Hathaway, and Wal-Mart.

Shares of Cisco Systems Inc. fell nearly 11 percent yesterday after the company - the world's largest maker of equipment that directs Internet traffic - expressed doubt about business in coming months. It was the latest evidence that technology spending in general may be faltering. Technology stocks have wavered in the last month as companies reported generally strong earnings but offered differing views on the pace of the economic recovery. Until Tuesday, Cisco had been among the most optimistic about the future.

The Phillies can scratch any notion of making Mark DeRosa their third baseman for 2007. DeRosa, a former Penn Quaker, became the first major league free agent to switch teams this offseason, agreeing yesterday to a $13 million, 3-year contract with the Chicago Cubs. A 9-year veteran, he is expected to be the Cubs' everyday second baseman next season. The 31-year-old DeRosa batted a career-high .296 with 13 homers and a career-best 74 RBI last season for the Texas Rangers, appearing at six positions and starting at all four infield spots.

"We have been in a bull market since Sept. 21, [and] here comes Cisco Kid to rescue the day," Vineland investment manager David Kotok told clients of Cumberland Advisors Inc. earlier this month after battered Cisco Systems Inc. surged on better-than-expected profit news. "It is still a bull market. There are still two trillion dollars on the sidelines wondering what to do," Kotok added.

LAS VEGAS - Miniature toy drones that can fly and crawl across the ceiling but steer clear of stratospheric prices. Wearable fitness sensors that can track your steps, stairs, calorie use, even your heart rate and sleep patterns. Three-dimensional printers for under $1,000 that can bring your creation to life. Every January during the Consumer Electronics Show, Sin City briefly turns into a technologist's imaginarium - a place to show off innovations, make connections, and catch a glimpse of everybody else's dreams.

Dish Network has its Hopper, which records every show in prime time and helps you skip commercials. Microsoft has its Xbox One, which it says will enable you to control your TV with voice or gestures. Apple TV is still reaching for Steve Jobs' goal of an easy-to-use "integrated television. " Comcast hasn't announced its own plans to win the war for the living room. But the Philadelphia cable and broadband giant has a stealth entrant in that contest: the X1, a do-almost-everything device designed to protect and expand its share of the turf.

NEW YORK - Encouraging earnings from Cisco and hopeful signs in a housing report lifted the stock market Thursday.

Cisco Systems, the world's largest maker of computer networking equipment, led the 30 stocks in the Dow Jones industrial average, surging 10 percent. Cisco beat profit expectations late Wednesday and raised its quarterly dividend to 14 cents per share from 8 cents. Cisco gained $1.67 to $19.02.
