Today parents face an array of media and entertainment technologies that present difficult problems for those wishing to shield their children from media content -- photographic images, music, advertisements, and motion pictures -- that may be morally damaging. Consequently, Family Research Council supports the vigorous enforcement of existing laws banning the distribution of obscene materials and the enactment of new laws criminalizing the distribution of non-obscene pornographic material to children.  Similarly, Family Research Council supports efforts by the Federal Communications Commission to increase the fines and ...

Legal brief filed in Mann UVA emails case | Watts Up With That?
Late yesterday the State Attorney General of Virginia posted this legal brief which had been filed with the courts, and also served to the University of Virginia (UVA). This legal brief document is about discovery, not about a lawsuit. It is a prelude, and it is possible that no lawsuit may be filed if there is insufficient evidence to back up speculations that have been raised over the Climategate affair. The current issue is over UVA refusing releasing emails from Dr. Michael Mann related to his work on the MBH98 and MBH99 papers, which later generated the famous “hockey stick” graph used by the IPCC: Via the ... market research, surveys and trends

Kagan accused of political editing
WASHINGTON — When the U.S. Supreme Court knocked down Nebraska’s “partial-birth” abortion ban a decade ago, it relied in part on a medical group’s policy statement that the procedure might, in certain cases, be the best way to preserve a woman’s life or health. The court cited the statement in ruling that Nebraska’s ban was faulty for lacking a health exception. But notes and memos that surfaced during the recent confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan indicate that she — and not the medical group — penned the language supporting the need for that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
AG defends Texas Open Meetings Act

When to pay sales commission when sales are contract-based ...
I have a new direct marketing firm and am trying to structure a fair commission structure for my 100% commission sales team.

I thought about the following structures: 1. Commissions Fully Paid-Out upon closing -Too risky because of high probability of client defaults with no-recourse 2. Commissions paid as payments being collected -safest -Little commission upfront for the salesperson and encourages farming instead of hunting 3. ...
