“I walked five miles to get out of Pittsburgh, and two rides, an apple truck and a big trailer truck, took me to Harrisburg in the soft Indian-summer rainy night. I cut right along. I wanted to get home…. That night in Harrisburg I had to sleep in the railroad station on a bench; at dawn the station masters threw me out. Isn’t it true that you start your life a sweet child believing in everything under your father’s roof?” – Jack Kerouac, “On the Road” So a canvasser goes to a woman's door in Washington, Pennsylvania. Knocks. Woman answers. Knocker asks who she's ...
is viewed in different lights. In some areas there is cultural and even legal support, where in others the diet is poorly understood or even frowned upon. In some countries (such as India and the United Kingdom ) food labelling is in place which can make it easier for vegetarians to identify foods compatible with their diets. In some others, a request for a vegetarian meal may result in one being served tuna or a vegetable soup made with meat stock.

“Is there any inflation?” “There is no inflation.” - Tea Party ...
We once had gold and silver certificates. Paper money that was BACKED by precious metal that has real value. Today we have paper money backed by the Federal Reserve (a private corporation). What backs up the value of the current dollar? Perceived supply and demand. That’s it. Only as long as you believe it has value. The relative purchasing power of the dollar has devalued to about $.027 of the value in 1910. How can I say that? Well before we went off the gold standard (thank you Mr Nixon) it was a fixed price of $35.00 an ounce. Gold recently peaked at $1256.00 an ounce. A good example of rampant inflation happened to ... market research, surveys and trends
Full scholarships for 10 Black men seeking Ph.D. in education ...

Poll: Voters Reject Health Care Mandate Without Public Option ...
The story below includes references to polling conducted by the firm Research 2000. The reliability and accuracy of Research 2000's polling has since been called into serious question by a report published in June 2010 by a group of statistical analysts . A new poll suggests that voters are not pleased by the idea of health insurance mandates without a public option or a Medicare expansion. Conducted by Research 2000 for the Progressive Change Campaign Committee (PCCC) and Democracy for America (DFA), the survey finds only 33 percent of likely voters favor a health care bill that does not include a public health insurance ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Hoboken residents will pay hundreds more in taxes. Here's why ...
Let's put 47 percent in concrete terms: If your home is assessed at $250,000, your taxes will go up $646 dollars per quarter. When do you have to pay up? The increase applies to the first two quarters of FY 2009. The first bill will go out in a few weeks and you'll be expected to pay up three weeks later, so plan for late November. The second quarter bill will likely be due in mid January. Will taxes come back down for the third and fourth quarter bills? If enough cuts are made and/or new revenue sources found then yes. Otherwise no. Why is the hike necessary? The short answer is that past budgets were underfunded ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

COUPON QUEEN: Buying coupons: Don't ask, don't sell
Recently, we discussed whether it is against the law to trade coupons (good news, it is not!) This week, a reader writes with a trickier question. Q: Is it a good idea to buy coupons on eBay? Is it even legal? Most coupons state Void if Sold. A: The fine print on a coupon usually includes the warning, "Coupon may be void if copied, transferred, reproduced, sold or exchanged." While the prohibition of coupon transfer is a little fuzzy -- it's perfectly legal to share or trade them with friends, for example -- the rule about not selling them seems clear-cut. "Sold" is sold, no matter how you look at it. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Military policy on gays faces legal test
The U.S. government's "don't ask, don't tell" policy banning openly gay military service members will be at the center of a legal battle played out in a federal courtroom in Riverside on Tuesday, with the policy facing its first major constitutional challenge since a 2003 U.S. Supreme Court decision in a Texas case struck down anti-sodomy laws. In its lawsuit against the government, the Log Cabin Republicans, a gay rights group, argues that the Texas ruling means the military can no longer interpret a mere admission of homosexuality as justification for a discharge. The group also contends that the ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

In spite of these amendments and civil rights acts to enforce the amendments, between 1873 and 1883 the Supreme Court handed down a series of decisions that virtually nullified the work of Congress during Reconstruction.

THE REAL WORK OF LEGAL ADVISER
The first and most important duty of the legal adviser, obviously, is to advise his minister, sometimes the government, Parliament or even the head of state, of the existing international law in respect to a particular issue, problem or situation. The purpose is, of course, to give the proper legal framework in making appropriate foreign political decisions, so that the country’s policy does not come in conflict with international law and the broad interests of the international community. It is significant that even countries and their leaders who bluntly break fundamental rules and principles ...

I can't use that picture due to copyright issues. But my client is insistent on using the idea. What are my options? It seems to be I have three options, so probably three questions. A) Find the original illustrator and attempt to gain copyright to use the image. Have NO idea where to start because my client doesn't remember where the image came from and my google skills fail me. I also need a much higher quality of that image. B) Commission someone to redraw it. Where do I find a person like this? Would Etsy be a place to try? How much should I expect to pay? I'm concerned about this option, because this job does ...
