Scheduled pay increases survive school district budget cuts ...
Teacher and employee scheduled pay increases — called steps and lanes — passed in the Cache County School District preliminary budget for 2010-11. Teachers expressed strong opposition to a possible freeze of steps and lanes in the May 21 board meeting. Board members on several occasions also expressed a desire not to make cuts to teacher’s pay — and expected pay — unless they have no alternative.

for Americans are no longer being issued at the border with Lebanon, Jordan, or Turkey. They must be procured in Washington. For the last few years Syria did issue visas at the border, but made Americans wait between an hour to seven hours before issuing them. Now they are not being issued at all. This appears to be part of the tit-for-tat diplomatic war being waged between the two countries. Washington recently refused to confirm Ambassador Ford as the new US envoy to Damascus.  Fulbright graduate students have also been running into increased troubles. A fairly large number of graduate Fulbrighters have been denied entry back ... market research, surveys and trends

In Dubai Crisis, a Test of Law and Islamic Banking - DealBook Blog ...

Issuance of loans and bonds that comply with Shariah, or Islamic law, has skyrocketed in recent years, as oil-rich Middle East nations ramped up spending and the global credit crunch led debt investors into emerging markets. But the unique terms of these instruments, which technically make lenders partners with borrowers, have never been tested in a downturn. “There have ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

Congress Drops Changes for Credit-Rating Agencies
House and Senate negotiators voted on Tuesday to strip new conflict-of-interest rules for credit rating agencies out of a sweeping overhaul of the nation’s financial regulatory system, leaving in place a process that many analysts say contributed to the proliferation of troubled mortgage-backed securities that were a cause of the 2008 financial crisis. Senator Al Franken, Democrat of Minnesota, had championed a proposal that would end a longstanding practice of banks choosing the rating agencies, like Moody’s Investors Service or Standard & Poor’s , that evaluate the securities they issue. Mr. Franken and other ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Newborn Blood Spot Banking: Approaches to Consent - PredictER Law ...
Since 1965, nearly all newborns in the United States receive a heel prick; health professionals use the resulting blood spots in newborn screening. After collection, the newborn blood spot (NBS) samples are sent to the state’s health department for testing, retained for varying lengths of time, and, in some cases, used for research purposes. Traditionally, state health departments have stored NBS for confirmatory diagnosis and quality assurance testing. Most states do not inform parents of retention and research use of NBS; early screening tests can prevent avoidable injuries to newborns. Accordingly, many state health ...
