Does anyone here know much about contract law? I have been offered a contract for employment at an academic institution, and some of the terms of the contract are vague. I asked that the institution issue a slightly rewritten contract with some points of clarification, but was told that this was not a good idea since it would take a long time and would involve approval by multiple layers (legal, administrative, etc) within the institution. In effect, I was told that...

Words can be very damaging, particularly to a child in her formative years. Add in the fact that her parents have split, and that she has to cope with all of this within the dysfunctional confines of Hollywood culture, and it becomes an increasingly sad situation. It is none of my business, but he is clearly wrong to speak to her like that, particularly if all she did was miss a phone call. He really needs help....

Saw Grindhouse today. Planet Terror was sort of fun, particularly the female character (who contrives all manner of prostheses) and her beau (who proves to be more formidable than expected). It was a fairly well done throw-back to the 70's horror film genre. I didn't care too much for Death Proof.....Someone else mentioned that the dialogue in Tarantino's script seemed almost like self-parody. I agree. Ever since Jackie Brown, everything he does seems so formulaic.
The Zegna couture oxfords are great!!
Very interesting.

My impression is that having an impressive academic pedigree in this day and age doesn't open doors for you by itself; what it does do is widen the opening that is already there. What opens the door is achievement (above and beyond the collegiate admission process). If your CV indicates high grades, good test scores, involvement in various groups and activities (curricular and extracurricular), many people will want to take a look at you, whether for grad school or...
If cost is much of an issue, one alternative might be to use a self-packing mover. The company leaves the trailer at your home, you fill it with your belongings, they pick up the trailer and haul it to your destination. They leave the trailer at your new place and you then unload everything yourself; when you are done, they return to collect the trailer. I used a self-packing company and saved a small fortune on my last move. You are charged based upon how much room...
