Well advised, Malcolm Turnbull! John Alexander: James Packer gave his PBL CEO $15 million to buy out his contract when the casino business was demerged in 2007 but then retained him on the boards of both companies earning more than $2 million a year.

Rebekah Sanderlin: Goodbye: PBS's 'This Emotional Life': Letting ...
Big jumps, little jumps, Golden Knights — there are parachutes aplenty here at Fort Bragg and I’ve seen a bunch of them. I’ve even written about the chutes themselves. Jumping out of airplanes begins to seem commonplace when soldiers wearing maroon and green berets, which are awarded only to soldiers who have attended the Army’s Airborne school, are everywhere you look here. With all of this exposure, I thought I understood what it meant to jump out of an airplane — but then Saturday I did it for myself. I knew immediately afterward that I wanted to write about the experience and thinking about what ... market research, surveys and trends
Goodbye, overtime (updated) - Capitol Confidential
A reader passed along this memo from Director of State Operations Valerie Gray and Budget Director Bob Megna, issuing an immediate “moratorium” on overtime amid the state’s current cash crunch. “Overtime will be permitted only for employees who are in positions requiring the provision of direct care services or the performance of functions necessary for the preservation of health or safety,” the memo, dated May 13, says. “The Division of the Budget will be reviewing payroll data to monitor overtime hours and expenditures to ensure compliance with this directive.” But it is explicit that ... market research, surveys and trends


Fiorina Wins: Will She Remain a Far-Right Tea Party Corporate ...
With the BP oil spill, the nation is currently witnessing one of the worst acts of corporate negligence—or crime—in history. This eco-nightmare is occurring during a time of economic trouble triggered by brazen corporate malfeasance in the financial sector. So it might not be a good moment for a politician to be a CEO. Yet in California, Republican voters on Tuesday flocked to two self-financing ex-corporate honchos, selecting ex-eBay CEO Meg Whitman to be the party’s gubernatorial candidate (to face onetime Democratic governor and current state Attorney General Jerry Brown) and picking ex-Hewlett-Packard CEO ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

in addition to her $120,000-a-year pension. The deal, negotiated by the school board five years ago, includes cash for vacation time and the 235 unused sick days the superintendent accumulated over her 38-year career. Suddenly, Trzeszkowski finds herself the new poster case for New Jersey government run amok. Critics say her golden parachute is especially embarrassing considering her small, low-income district is an Abbott community that receives millions in special state aid. Yesterday, Gov. Jon Corzine said all superintendents' contracts should be reviewed and the state attorney general's office went to court to ask ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Slashdot | Is it Wrong to Accept an Employment Counter-Offer?
"I was happily working away at a low-paying but otherwise good job I'd had for several months, after taking a huge pay cut when the dot.bomb bubble burst. Then a recruiter contacted me with a very nice potential position - I interviewed and received an offer with a 50% increase in pay, everything else nearly the same. When I received the offer and decided I was interested, I broke the news to my current employer - to my surprise they extended a counter-offer with a matching salary, thereby eliminating my only reason for considering the other job. However, I talked to some friends and checked the web for ideas and ...
