Soft Dollar Case Raises Eyebrows

soft dollar case raises eyebrows special research report Photo by
At a friend's sleepover more than a year ago, 14-year-old Phillip Swartley pocketed change from unlocked vehicles in the neighborhood to buy chips and soft drinks. The cops caught him. Former Luzerne county President Judge Mark Ciavarella pleaded guilty, faces prison and was disbarred. There was no need for an attorney, said Phillip's mother, Amy Swartley, who thought at most, the judge would slap her son with a fine or community service. But she was shocked to find her eighth-grader handcuffed and shackled in the courtroom and sentenced to a youth detention center. Then, he was shipped to a boarding school for ...
in 1932 and established her career with several critically acclaimed performances. In 1937, she attempted to free herself from her contract and although she lost a well-publicized legal case, it marked the beginning of the most successful period of her career. Until the late 1940s, she was one of American cinema's most celebrated leading ladies, known for her forceful and intense style. Davis gained a reputation as a perfectionist who could be highly combative, and her confrontations with studio executives, film directors and costars were often reported. Her forthright manner, clipped vocal style and ubiquitous cigarette ...
This Town Just Wasn't Made for Two (Part three)
“Jon! There you are!” Brendon says as he rushes forward to meet Jon the rest of the way, Spencer following along behind him. “You left the store,” Brendon says and then he notices the painting tucked under Jon’s arm. “What’s that under your arm?” “I couldn’t find you in the store, Brendon and this is a painting I bought from an artist down by the library.” “I went in the dressing room to try on a suit and when I came out you were gone,” Brendon says, a slight pout taking over his features. “That’s a pretty good painting, Jon,” Spencer notes, “How much did it cost you?” “He wanted a dollar but took seventy-five cents.” Brendon’s ... market research, surveys and trends
Part 3
When Dean shows up at Henry Mayo Hospital the next afternoon, Castiel is perched on the side of his bed, staring at his hands, still in his hospital gown. His arm is out of the sling, but in the moment before he turns, Dean sees a flash of white against his back – bandages wound around his ribs. Then Castiel looks up at him, and maybe Dean’s just getting better at reading him, but there’s a definite warmth in his eyes as he takes in Dean’s casual jeans and leather jacket – it’s Saturday, he can wear whatever the hell he wants, thanks – and the bag he’s got looped around one wrist. ... market research, surveys and trends


Ad Rant: Racy Reebok ad raises eyebrows
Reebok's Easytone sneakers are supposed to firm and tone your butt to such an extent that the actress in one of their ads actually has to halt her pitch several times to chide the cameraman for lingering on her posterior. " Dude !" she says, and the camera, momentarily startled, goes back to business. It follows her like a puppydog and then, once again, the actress has to remind it to focus a few feet north. These sneakers apparently build your body 12 different ways, just like Wonderbread. Reebok claims these sneakers provide 28 percent more gluteus maximus muscle activation, and 11% more calf and hamstring ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Arizona corporate executives' pay dips for 2nd straight year
Pressures exerted by a slow economy and soft stock market increasingly are being felt in corner offices, underscored by a drop in pay for top executives at Arizona public firms for a second straight year. Chief executive officers and chairmen at 54 firms reported a median compensation package of $868,000 for 2007, down from $1.09 million in 2006 and $1.11 million in 2005, according to an annual pay survey by The Arizona Republic . "The economy has been bad, and when performance suffers, stock prices suffer," said Steve Sanghi of Chandler-based Microchip Technology, one of the top-paid Arizona executives on the list. ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Presbyterians voting on gay clergy, marriage
Presbyterian leaders were set to vote Thursday on whether to allow their church to become one of the most gay-friendly major Christian churches in the U.S. by allowing non-celibate gays to serve as clergy and defining marriage as between "two people." But even if both changes pass, it would not be a final stamp of approval for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its more than 2 million members. Presbyterians meeting in Minneapolis for the church's general assembly were scheduled to vote on two proposed constitutional changes. One would allow non-celibate gays and lesbians in committed relationships to serve as ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

I am a 22-year-old female who has always wanted to shave her head. I have incredibly thick, wavy, dry hair that takes a lot of time to maintain. My original plan was to shave my head after graduation, before embarking on a long backpacking trip. Recently, my aunt was diagnosed with cancer, and has lost her hair during chemotherapy. Instead of waiting until May to shave my head, I am going to do it next week. Friends and family are donating money to the cause (which is awesome!) so my only concern at the moment is what I should know before I do it, and what I'll need to know after it's done. The plan right now is to ...
