Immigration in the United States is now becoming a larger problem than it once used to be. Currently roughly 8 million people are living in the U.S. without legal papers and each year approximately 200,000 illegal immigrants successfully cross the border. More than half of the illegal aliens are of Mexican origin. An illegal immigrant is a foreigner who has either illegally crossed an international political border, be it by land, water, or air, or a foreigner who has entered a country legally but then outstays his/her visa. In the United States at least, illegal immigrants traditionally have entered the country in search of wages higher than those achievable in their home countries. It is said that, “demand for low-skilled labor continues to grow in the United States while the domestic supply of suitable workers inexorably declines” (Griswold, 15 October 2002, pg. 1). This brings about the issue of whether or not it is ethical and acceptable for U.S. corporations to hire illegal aliens. Most people have strong feelings on no matter which side of this issue they are on and when asked, are very vocal. Though most have strong opinions, some are not as familiar with nor care about who comes into our country and what jobs they take. The impact that hiring illegal immigrants has on the economy is greater than one would think. Imagine what is actually happening; foreigners make their way across the United States borders and then apply to work at certain jobs. The employers know that most immigrants will take a much lower pay wage than the typical American citizen. This being the case, they choose to hire the alien rather than employing a legal U.S. resident. So is this fair? And if so, who exactly is it fair to? These are the issues in question as to whether or not they should be legalized.
So is it wrong to say “no” to people wanting a better life for themselves and their families? A lot of people feel strongly that immigrants are just people that were born into underdeveloped, poverty-stricken countries, and that they should be given any and all opportunities that any other person has. Most immigrants are just looking for jobs and wages better than those available in their home countries. For example, the 1994 economic crisis in Mexico was associated with widespread poverty and a lower valuation for the peso relative to the dollar. The United States Department of Labor calculates that the Zone A (mostly industrialized) minimum wage in Mexico in 1999 was 34.45 pesos, or about $3.50 U.S. dollars per day. The Zone C (rural/agricultural) minimum wage was 29.70 Pesos a day, or roughly $3.02 U.S. dollars a day. By contrast, the United States’ minimum wage was set at $5.85 per hour under a federal law, and many states required rates higher than the federally mandated minimum at this time. One can only imagine how that increase in pay would look to just about anyone. Some people say “go for it” and some people are more traditional and feel strongly against it. Both sides have multiple reasons as to why one is better than the other. Many people would be surprised to learn that contrary to common beliefs, evidence does not suggest that a properly designed system of legal Mexican migration will unleash a flood of new immigrants to the United States, hurt low-skilled Americans, burden taxpayers, create an unassimilated underclass, encourage lawbreaking, or compromise border security (Griswold, 15 Oct 2002, pg. 1). Most countries have laws requiring workers to have proper documentation, often intended to prevent or minimize the employment of unauthorized immigrants. However the penalties against employers are often small, the ID requirements vague and ill-defined, as well as being seldom checked or enforced, making it easy for employers to hire unauthorized labor. While in office, George W. Bush and Vicente Fox, president of Mexico got together and now, “…endorse an immigration policy that includes “matching...
Dear Mr. Hendricks,
My name is Brad Johnson and I am writing you today because I understand you are looking for a new mechanic for your racing team. I would like to inform you of my experience in order to prove to you that I am the right fit for the job that you are offering. I have been following your career as the owner of the top NASCAR team for quite some time now and have always dreamed of being involved with such a successful race team. I have looked forward to being a mechanic since my freshman year of high school. I already have a racing background and hope to expand my horizons by becoming involved with NASCAR and Hendricks racing. I am only twenty years old, but I have been racing and wrenching on my own machines and vehicles since I was nine years old. I have paid keen attention to your team’s track record and I know that your engines are some of the most reliable engines out on the track each and every week.
I would like to become the head mechanic for Hendricks racing someday in the near future, but as of now I would be perfectly fine with working as an apprentice to gain my experience and hopefully take over the head mechanic position. I have not only gained mechanical experience from working on my own vehicles and machines, but I have also gathered experience from work and school. I took auto shop in high school for two years and at that moment I knew what field I was to enter after high school. I also had a part time job at...

LAW245: MALAYSIAN LEGAL SYSTEM
a) Houses built on stilts
In the case of Holland v. Hodgson, the court held that all thing attached to the land are fixtures, thus it shall from part of the land. On the other hand, by virtue of National Land Code 1965, section 5 classified land as either land above the shore line or foreshore and seabed.
But our land Land Court does not defined items which fall under fixtures or chattel. Therefore, we should test the condition by :
1) Degree of Annexation
i) To what extend is an item attached to the land.
The item might be strongly or slightly attached to the land or the item might be resting by its own on the land. In this case, the stilts house firmly attached to the land via its stilts. Then for the first test, it seems it a fixture.
ii) To what extend an injury will be caused to the item upon its removal.
If to remove the item that fix to the land will cause damaged to the item or building then it is considered as fixture but if the item did not cause any damage when it removed, the thing is considered as a chattel.
2) Purpose of Annexation
It is important to consider the purpose of annexation in order to determine whether the item falls under definition of fixture or chattel. These are 2 things to be considered:
i) The thing attach to the land for the enhancement of the value of the land is considered as fixture.
ii) The thing attach to land for better...
...HIRE PURCHASE SYSTEM
A trader could sell goods either for cash or for credit. For goods sold on credit, the payments may be made by the buyer in lump sum on a future date, or in installments spread over for a specified period of time.
When goods are sold on credit, for which payment is made by the buyer in installments over a period of time, it is called purchase system or installment system.
Hire Purchase System defers to the system wherein, the seller of goods delivers the goods to the buyer without transferring the ownership of goods. The payment for the goods will be made by the buyer in installments. If the buyer pays all the installments, the ownership of the goods will be transferred, on payment of the last installment. However, if the buyer does not pay for any installment, the goods will be repossessed by the seller and the money paid on earlier installments will be treated as hire charges for using the goods. So, under this system, the transaction may result in purchasing of goods by the buyer or in hiring the goods. Hence, the system is called Hire Purchase System.
Difference Between and Hire Purchase
Although hire purchase system could ultimately result in sale of goods, the sale in normal sense and sale under hire purchase system are not the same. The following are the differences between sale and hire purchase.
...he 44-year-old Linton woman was a mere 5 feet tall, weighed barely 100 pounds and had an attractive smile.
And, with the mental ability of a grade-school child, she would have a hard time telling anyone if something happened to her, Greene County Prosecutor David Powell said in his opening statements Tuesday at the trial of one of the men accused of killing her.
"Pam was an innocent," Powell said. "She lived the last two weeks of her life in an absolute hellhole."
Powell then sketched out the details of the case against Roger Long, a 47-year-old drifter from Bedford.
He began by describing how investigators believe Long and several others abducted Foddrill as she was walking home from the store one day in 1995, tied her up and repeatedly sexually assaulted her before beating and stabbing her to death. Her partially decomposed body was found four months later near Lawrenceville, Ill.
Long is being held in the Greene County Jail without bond on charges of murder, criminal confinement, criminal deviate conduct and conspiracy.
The trial, in Greene Superior Court with Judge David Holt presiding, is expected to last about three weeks. Twelve jurors and four alternates from Morgan County are hearing the case.
For two years, Foddrill's killing went unsolved.
hen in late 1997, Lawrence County Jail inmate Tim Cazee said Long told him he was involved in Foddrill's rape and murder, Powell said.
Several months later, Wanda Sue Julius Hubbell, 37, of Linton,...
2.Description of the Element
In 1878, erbium ores were found to contain the oxides of holmium and thulium. French chemist Paul Émile Lecoq de Boisbaudran, while working with holmium oxide, separated dysprosium oxide from it in Paris in 1886. His procedure for isolating the dysprosium involved dissolving dysprosium oxide in acid, then adding ammonia to precipitate the hydroxide. He was only able to isolate dysprosium from its oxide after more than 30 attempts at his procedure. Upon succeeding, he named the element dysprosium from the Greek dysprositos(δυσπρόσιτος), meaning "hard to get". However, the element was not isolated in relatively pure form until after the development of ion exchange techniques by Frank Spedding at Iowa State University in the early 1950s.
In 1950, Glenn T. Seaborg, Albert Ghiorso, and Stanley G. Thompson bombarded 241Am with helium ions, which produced atoms with an atomic number of 97 and which closely resembled the neighboring lanthanide terbium. Because terbium was named after Ytterby, the city in which it and several other elements were discovered, this new element was named berkelium for the city in which it was synthesized. However, when the research team synthesized element 98, they could not think of a good analogy for dysprosium, and instead named the element californium in honor of the state in which it was synthesized. The research team went on to "point out that, in recognition of the fact...
With the rise of illegalimmigrants, the United States has had difficulties solving the issue for a long time. Hence, there’re many factors for the causes and solutions from different branches and the government. “Amnesty?” and “Why blame Mexico?” are two articles that discuss the reasons for millions of Mexicans risking their lives to come illegally to the U.S. and indeed illustrate the writer’s perspectives and ideas for those people.
In “Amnesty?”, John F. Kavanaugh, a Jesuit professor of philosophy, presents the illegalimmigrants problem based upon the morality of a Judeo-Christian country. The writer begins by a sensational example of an illegal Mexican named María. She is a productive woman, a mother of three children, and a long-term illegalimmigrant in the U.S. However, she has been separated from her family, deported to a dangerous place, and threatened with felony charges of years in prison if she ever tries to come back illegally. This example, according to Kavanaugh, is a persuasive evidence proving that America illegalimmigrants treatment system is very cruel even to the priority social groups such as women and children. Additionally, Kavanaugh mentions the protestation fights against deportations by the U.S. bishops, in which they call for “a more compassionate, fair, and...
