Unfair Dismissal Revisited

unfair dismissal revisited special research report Photo by
A professor who resigned after managers overruled his marking was not unfairly dismissed, the Employment Appeal Tribunal has ruled. Paul Buckland, professor of archaeology at the University of Bournemouth, failed 14 out of 16 candidates who resat an examination in 2006. His marks were approved by Bournemouth's examination board, but the papers were later revisited and the number of failures reduced. Brian Astin, the chair of the board of examiners, approved the higher marks without consulting Professor Buckland. An internal investigation found that the professor should have been consulted about the decision to change the marks.
Eton has traditionally been referred to as "the chief nurse of England's statesmen", and has been described as the most famous public school in the world. Early in the 20th century, a historian of Eton wrote, "No other school can claim to have sent forth such a cohort of distinguished figures to make their mark on the world". The Good Schools Guide called the school "the number one boys' public school," adding, "The teaching and facilities are second to none."

Anna Greenberg: Angry White Women Revisited
Immediately after John McCain announced that Sarah Palin was his choice for vice president, the media breathlessly reported Palin's ability to bring in the women's vote. Indeed, Palin herself asserted that she could attract some of those 18 million Hillary Clinton supporters because, presumably, women voters like to vote for women candidates. This often made proposition is demonstrably false and was so from the beginning. As polls after the Republican convention showed, partisanship is a much bigger determinant of how voters feel about Palin than gender and because men tend to identify with the Republican Party more ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Russell G. Thornton, JD, Stinnett Thiebaud & Remington LLP, 4800 Fountain Place, 1445 Ross Avenue, Dallas, Texas 75202 (e-mail: rthornton/at/ ). To briefly review the process itself, everything begins with the receipt of a complaint by the TMB. The first step involves determination of whether or not the TMB has jurisdiction over the complaint. For example, if the complaint is about the actions or conduct of a nonphysician in a physician's office (and there is no issue about the physician's supervision of that individual), the complaint will likely be dismissed since the TMB does not have ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

How would you describe the political stance of the New York Times?
In October 2005, Times reporter Judith Miller was released from prison after 85 days, when she agreed to testify to Special Prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald’s grand jury after receiving a personal waiver, both on the phone and in writing, of her earlier confidential source agreement with Lewis "Scooter" Libby. No other reporter whose testimony had been sought in the case had received such a direct and particularized release. Her incarceration has helped fuel an effort in Congress to enact a federal shield law, comparable to the state shield laws which protect reporters in 31 of the 50 states. After her second appearance ...
