Online Research: Common Law
Common law, system of law that prevails in England and in countries colonized by England. The name is derived from the medieval theory that the law administered by the king's courts represented the common custom of the realm, as opposed to the custom of local jurisdiction that was applied in local or manorial courts. In its early development common law was largely a product of three English courts—King's Bench, Exchequer, and the Court of Common Pleas—which competed successfully against other courts for jurisdiction and developed a distinctive body of doctrine. The term "common law" is also used to mean the traditional, precedent-based element in the law of any common-law jurisdiction, as opposed to its statutory law or legislation (see statute), and also to signify that part of the legal system that did not develop out of equity, maritime law, or other special branches of practice.

Gray v. Tyson
Background
Jerrie Gray worked at the Tyson Foods facility in Marshall, Missouri from August 6, 1993 to March 16, 1995. During that time, plaintiff was exposed to comments, gestures, and physical contact that she found to be offensive and believed constituted sexual harassment.
On February 6, 1997, plaintiff filed suit in this court seeking recovery under both Title VII (42 U.S.C. § 2000e-5) and the Missouri Human Rights Act (MHRA) (Mo. Rev.Stat. § 213.055). Ultimately, a jury found in favor of plaintiff and awarded $40,000 for back pay, $185,000 for compensatory damages, and $800,000 for punitive damages. On August 31, 1998, I held a hearing on defendant's post-trial motions for judgment as a matter of law, for a new trial, and for remittitur.

Subnetting 1 2 3

...Subnetting 1 2 3 By Adam Chee W.S Ever get stressed out because you know that there would be subnetting question(s) in the next exam you are taking and that these questions easily take up 10 to 20 minutes of your precious exam time? What if there is more than one question? The process of converting the subnet to binary and decimal can drive the unfamiliar insane, not to mention the waste of precious time and brain power which can be utilized for other areas of exam preparation. Let's take a look at a shortcut method that will cut down the time needed to answer these questions without the need for a calculator. Subnet Basics: This article assumes that you know how to perform subnetting in the traditional method but it is important to stress that there are only 3 classes of usable IP addresses which are Class Range Subnet mask Host bit Subnet Class A (127 is reserved for loopback) 255.0.0.0 24 8 Class B 128 - 191 255.255.0.0 16 16 Class C 192 - 223 255.255.255.0 8 24 1 - 126 You must understand and remember this table well in order to master the shortcut.

Me preguntaron por la relación entre el asesinato imaginario (en prosa) y la vida real (carente de homicidios) con mujer, hijos y perro. Se trataba de una pregunta inteligente y, al planteármela, empecé a pensar sobre la escritura, la muerte y la fama… y poco después comencé a armar la novela.” -John Katzenbach La historia narra cómo un escritor jubilado de novelas de asesinatos, las cuales en la vida real el fue quien los realizó, nunca fue atrapado por esos crímenes. Como él no logro la fama que el esperaba como escritor tuvo que cambiar de profesión a corregir los errores de los columnistas del periódico local, el vivía con su esposa que era secretaria del director de una escuela. Cuando se entero que ya no le quedaba mucho tiempo de vida se dio cuenta que quería dejar su legado en el mundo de la escritura como también en la de los crímenes así que ideó un plan perfecto, 3 victimas con características semejantes, 3 locaciones de asesinatos una mas lejos que la otra, las 3 al mismo tiempo, para poder dejar su legado como uno de......

Week 3 Discussion 1 & 2

...Week 3 Discussion 1 From the e-Activity, develop a regression equation using the data you collected from your research. Use the regression equation to focus the demand for the product you chose for the next three periods. Assess what the results of the regression equation tells managers and how it is likely to impact decisions made related to maximizing profitability. I decided to take a brief look into Buffalo Wild Wings Chain future expansion near college campuses. The restaurant chain's management wants to determine the best locations in which to expand their restaurant business. So far the most successful locations have been near college campuses. This opinion is based on the positive numbers that quarterly sales (y) reflect and the size of the student population (x). Management's mindset is that over all, the restaurants that are within close proximity to college campuses with large student bodies generate more sales than restaurants located near campuses with small student bodies. Imagine you are a manager for the good or service used above. From the results of the regression equation, suggest strategies to either maintain demand (if an increase over three periods occurs) or improve demand (if a decrease over three periods occurs). Provide support for your recommendations. The regression analysis of the demand patron assures that managers are able to forecast the future sales. For profitability perspective, the demand for the future should show an increasing......

Product delivery, project status, inventory control are the other major challenging responsibilities. The responsibilities which do not come under manager are payroll department, inventory pricing, invoicing system.
