If your company's like most, it's geared up to buy assets, not sell them. So when you decide to divest a business, you risk doing it at the wrong time or in the wrong way. To make the right divestiture decisions, apply these four rules recommended by Mankins, Harding, and Weddigen: Establish a team focused on divesting. Divest businesses that don't fit with your company's long-term strategy and that would create more value in another firm's portfolio. Make robust plans to separate out the divested businesses. Clearly communicate what's in the deal for buyers and employees. Companies that apply these ...

The Legitimacy of Boycotting as a Tactic « Aletho News
Progressivism values solidarity, and within that solidarity there is respect for diversity. It is expected that there will be differences of opinion on the causes of injustices and solutions to the injustice. What best captures the essence of progressivism is its adherence to principles. It seems obvious to declare the right to non-violently resist an occupier/oppressor must be one of those principles. There appears, however, a schism on this principle within the progressivist movement. One renowned leftist, Noam Chomsky, is against boycotts as a tactic to resist oppression. Jeffrey Blankfort objected to Chomsky’s stand ... market research, surveys and trends

When it comes to the Israeli academy, said David S. Katz, director of the Lessing Institute for European History at Tel Aviv University, “we are entering a McCarthyite phase – and I do not exaggerate”. “There is legislation being discussed that would limit freedom of expression in universities,” he said. “The education minister [Gideon Sa’ar] has expressed satisfaction with a report that looks at the course content of professors, sniffing out ‘anti-Zionist’ ideology. The Knesset Education Committee is behind this initiative as well. It is very bad indeed, and the universities have done little to reject this, apart from the ... market research, surveys and trends

"No I was never involved with kidnapping," he told Neil Cavuto. "No I was never involved with forcibly drugging people." But while that was the funniest anecdote in the original GQ story , the meat of it was that he was in a liberal "secret society" that engaged in blasphemy to poke fun at the religious conservatives who dominated Baylor, the college he effectively dropped out of. Paul does not mention anything about that. Paul does say that "they also have pictures of me with aliens," without saying who "they" is, leading to the impression that the stories came from the Weekly ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
PHAS-Divestment from Israel, the Liberal Churches, and Jewish ...
On 30 June 2004, the Presbyterian Church of the United States of America (PCUSA) passed a resolution by a vote of 431-62 at its 216th General Assembly calling for selective divestment from corporations doing business with Israel, specifically corporations that "support the occupation." 1 The main target was Caterpillar Inc. because it sells tractors and bulldozers (indirectly) to the IDF. Caterpillar became the Antichrist of this movement: the symbol of everything wrong with supporting Israel and "the occupation." The resolution precipitated a crisis in Jewish-Protestant relations in America. For many years ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Despite "rift," US, Israel talking Iran attack
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu meets with President Barack Obama in the Oval Office of the White House in Washington, Tuesday, July 6, 2010. To hear most media tell it before last week's meeting between Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu, the only relevant question was whether a deep U.S.-Israel " rift " was temporary or permanent. But the idea of some kind of substantive schism between the two countries has always been a bit comical. As Bloomberg put it in an underappreciated piece last month, "Obama's Israel Policy Showing No Difference With Clinton-Bush."

I’m not going to answer your question directly because you are really asking for legal advice and I am neither qualified, nor licensed to practice law in S.D.   It would appear that the rights granted to the remaindermen, using a common law analysis, would be vested, but subject to partial divestment. Here is what Wikipedia says about vesting:   Vesting means granting a person an immediate right to present or future enjoyment of property. In plain English, one has a right to a vested asset that cannot be taken away by any third party, even though one may not yet possess the asset. When the right, interest or ...
