Domino’s is a company where you can often see help wanted signs on the door. The employees don’t seem like they are happy working there, and it might be for a good reason. The CEO of the company has recently made it clear that the employees are not paid enough money, and there isn’t an increase in wages in the near future. If you own a business that is as successful as Domino’s, then there should be a way that you can make sure the employees are paid a decent amount per hour for the work that is done. There are a few people who work for the company who might see a small raise, but many of the employees make less than $8 an hour. Sam Tabar (wikipedia.com) agrees that some of the employees do work that is worth more than this amount, dealing with rude customers and making sure pizzas are delivered to homes in a short amount of time.
When a team is intent on getting better they take every opportunity to get better. This off season the Indianapolis Colts are showing how intent they are by going after top players to improve in their most needed positions. Marcio Alaor BMG stated their most recent addition will surely be an improvement over last season as Safety Dwight Lowery joins his fourth team in his eight seasons in the league. The reason for his addition can easily be seen in the teams most lopsided loses last year. The first of those loses was to the Dallas Cowboys in a game that was leading up to the playoffs but did not necessarily mean much. The second was in the AFC Championship game to the New England Patriots.
The United Kingdom has been waging a war against online pornography for a few years now. A couple years ago, the government under Conservative prime minister David Cameron announced plans to require all internet service providers(ISP) to institute porn filters. Any customers who wished to continue to have access to porn would have to opt back in through their ISP. The latest effort currently underway is to shut down any pornography websites that do not enact age restriction controls. The intent behind both of these measures is to prevent children from being able to see pornography.
The problem with such measures is that they generally do not work. People can search on the internet to find ways to get around filters, and the problem with one country passing legislation to shut down any pornography website that does not require users to verify age is that the internet is global by its very nature. The UK government can’t shut down a website in some other country that may not be following these guidelines. Jaime Garcia Dias agrees that the optimal solution to keeping children from accessing porn is for parents to implement more effective private filter software for routers in their home that their children use to access the internet. Such private filtering software enables parents a high degree of control over what the kids can see on the internet without compromising their own access to what they wish to see.
Current co-owner of the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks and American businessman Bruce Levenson is one of the big names in the basketball world. In addition to being a half owner of the Atlanta Hawks team, he is also the current Hawks governor as of 2004 for the NBA Board of Governors.
Levenson attended both Washington University and American University in his home town of Washington D.C., and even earned his law degree while starting his career in journalism for the Washington Star. In 1977, the Atlanta Hawks LLC partner and managing director co-founded a company right from his own apartment which published his very own paper, the Oil Express. The company that was built from the ground up is called the United Communications Group which Levenson put together with a man named Ed Peskowitz. This paper that he created had a main focus on concentrating on oil technology and current developments of it in the overall oil industry. The company specialized in news and analytic information for healthcare issues, mortgage banking, technology, energy, data, and another huge variety of topics that were related to both the business and financial world. Now, the duo’s company, United Communications Group, or also known as UCG has changed for the better with the current times as well. For example, the website and phone app “GasBuddy” which directs drivers to the nearest fuel station with the cheapest rates, is owned by Levenson’s UCG business.
It wasn’t until 2004 that Levenson decided to buy the Atlanta Hawks with his business partner, Ed Peskowitz, as they are now the majority partners of the Atlanta Hawks LLC. In 2012, Levenson went ahead and hired a man named Danny Ferry to be the general manager and the president of basketball operations for the Atlanta Hawks. Before going to the Hawks, Ferry was a player for the Cleveland Cavaliers and also got experience managing them during that time after his playing years.
A really nice gesture done by Levenson recently was that he took the entire Hawks basketball team to the U.S. Holocaust Museum in 2014. It was a very good bonding experience for them all, and it was especially personal to Levenson as his mother in law is a survivor of one of those terrible camps. Also in 2014, Levenson expressed and interest in selling his share of the ownership group which the details are still being worked out now.

Teammates were forced to work together in order to survive and find their way back to civilization.

The public’s concern about the treatment of elephants plays a major role in the decision to discontinue featuring elephants in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus performances. The pachyderms have been featured in the circus for over a century. PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) has been complaining about the circus’ poor elephant treatment for over 35 years. The circus travels eleven months out of the year and 300,000 miles to perform in over 140 cities per year. This means there’s not enough food or adequate veterinary care. Once the elephants are phased out, they’ll be sent to retire at the conservation center in Florida. According to Ken Feld, there are already 29 elephants at the conservation center, which is located in central Florida. The youngest elephant is Mike who turns two in August. The oldest elephant is 69-year-old, Mysore.
According to PETA, the elephants aren’t meant to be performers to be stared at. These animals are kept in dirty cages, chained, and carted around the country away from their families and pals. Elephants are forced against their will to perform for audiences.
The TV shot of New Jersey Governor Chris Christie trying to “high-five” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones may be the governor’s brightest hour if the truth is known about the Exon contamination settlement. Christie’s chief counsel was the driving force that settled the $8.9 billion claim for only $250 million. People close to the settlement say attorney Christopher S. Porrino settled the decade-old fight by pushing the New Jersey attorney general to one side.
Exxon Mobil Corporation is responsible for years of contamination in northern New Jersey, and they knew they had a weak case. The New Jersey attorney general’s office had been fighting the case for the last ten years, so it was a shock to everyone when Porrino took over without being asked. The deal Porrino cut was a blow to the state, but it was a big win for Exxon.
Dr. Jennifer Walden has learned that the damage done by the big oil company was unprecedented, but it was rewarded by Christie’s office. More than 1500 acres of marshes and wetlands in Jersey were the dumping ground for Exxon’s toxic waste. The waste will stay around for decades. The settlement may impact Christie’s political future, but as we all know politicians are like Teflon. Nothing seems to stick to them.
Pain is something that everyone can expect to feel at one point or another in their life. Unfortunately, although pain is common, chronic pain is not something that anyone should have to live with. Many people have chronic neck and back pain, and it may take over their lives. The pain can become so severe, that it makes it impossible for the person to work regularly, and they may end up missing a lot of days at work. An employer does not want to hear that their employee is sick, or that may have back or neck pain, they want their employees to work.
Unfortunately, it’s so common that an employee will call out of work, due to back pain, that it’s noted as the number one reason why many call out from work. Although back pain is prominent in the USA, many do not realize that they can possibly get permanent relief from the back pain they are suffering from. Back pain may be caused by anything, but it doesn’t mean that it has to stay with the person. Anyone who is having back pain, may be able to get permanent relief, if they qualify for the AccuraScope procedure.
The AccuraScope procedure is performed at North American Spine, and over 82% of patients have had success with the procedure. Because the procedure only requires a small incision in the neck or back, it means that a patient will have less recovery time, and they may end up pain free. Some require several procedures, while others may see permanent pain relief, after only having one procedure. The procedure only takes 45 minutes, and many have testified that they have a lot less pain than before, or they are completely pain free. It’s estimated that over $20,000 will be saved, after the procedure is performed.
The savings will stem from less doctor visits, as well as cutting back on or permanently getting rid of back and neck pain medications. Imagine saving tens of thousands of dollars on doctor visits and prescriptions, and also having pain relief. Many are not aware of the strides that have been taken in neck and back pain relief, but anyone can possibly have permanent pain relief. Once a patient is examined, if they are determined eligible to receive the AccuraScope procedure, they can have the procedure performed, and look forward to a less painful or pain-free life.
