Last year, Jim Cornelius (Corny to his friends) graduated from a two-year technical training school and got a job as a lathe operator at a nearby manufacturing plant. His salary is now $1,700 per month. He expects to get very small wage increases during the next year or two, but he hopes to be promoted to line inspector in about three years, which will increase his salary by $200 a month. Corny is sharing an apartment with a high school friend who also works at the plant. They are each spending $365 a month for a two-bedroom apartment and utilities, including local telephone service and cable TV.

Edwin J. Delattre describes in “Some Reflections on Success and failure in Competitive Athletics” that competitive athletics require a touchstone relationship of competitors’ i.e. that competitors have a moral and logical obligation to not engage in cheating. Competitive sports leagues and organizations have taken several measures to achieve competitive balance or fairness in regards to the spirit of competition.

It’s always good to start investing money at an early age, however, it’s a hard start. Many banks have improved interest rates as well as no opening fees to start a savings account. Stocks, such as health and technology are also currently going up. Billy should start by saving small amounts of money per week for two years and placing it in a savings account.

During our negotiation with D.G. Barnhouse (DGB), we intend to utilize an integrative bargaining strategy with management. Before coming to this conclusion, we weighed the advantages and disadvantages of a distributive approach, however, we eventually decided to take an integrative and predominantly interest based stance versus a position based stance in our negotiations after assessing internal and external environmental factors. In addition, we settled on this strategy because we ultimately believe that management and the union share at the very least, one fundamental common interest, which is the firm’s financial stability. That being said, even with our plans to use integrative bargaining, we still plan to negotiate assertively to achieve
Abigail Fisher and Rachel Multer Michalewicz were just two young women from Texas trying to get into their dream school. In 2008 the young women applied at the University of Texas. The two women, both white, filed suit, alleging that the University had discriminated against them on the basis of their race in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The Equal Protection Clause being a clause that allows no state to deny any person within its jurisdiction “the equal protection of the law”.

On June 23rd, 2013, students from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee, met up at a local bar called The Tin Roof.

Video evidence from the accused and their friends indicated that the four men had sexually assaulted the victim, using both a weapon (a water bottle) and their hands.
Homer A. Plessy was an African American cobbler (shoemaker) who was riding the Louisiana train. He sat in the Railroad car reserved for whites and was arrested when he revealed to the conductor that he was African American. When Plessy stated his plea that the Louisiana Jim Crow Railroad Car Law was unconstitutional, it was overruled by John H. Ferguson, a judge of the criminal court for New Orleans. There were challenges with their law in their Supreme Court; the problem was that it was conflicting with their Thirteenth and Fourteenth Amendment. The Thirteenth amendment was meant to prohibit slavery and the Fourteenth amendment stated that any human born or naturalized in the US of any race are american citizens. When the case was brought
