A.) Some businesses and large companies do credit checks on applicants who had been out of work. Not taking in consideration that most had lost their homes, cars, savings, and their children’s education funds, etc., and therefore, could not pay their bills. And, when their unemployment benefits ran out the unemployed Americans could not even buy food for their families.
Like having a nail in your tire. You can only go so far and then the nail keeps going in, going in, Oakley said. It reaches the peak, the hole gets bigger and all the air comes out of your tire. Evaluating the way companies compensate their executives entails wading into a morass of statistics and massaging them with formulas to give the components a suitable value.It becomes a tricky proposition to attempt to arrive at numbers that satisfy all constituents from a curious public to compensation experts to stockholder activists to executives sensitive to the notion that shareholders might wince at lofty totals.Plenty of compensation packages these days have been dramatically lifted by stock option grants, which give executives the right to buy company stock at special prices over specified periods.For example, when CRG took those and other similar long term stock incentives into account, the median pay for the top 100 executives totaled a much heftier $4.5 million.Consider the stock incentives granted to Westcott Price III, president of FHP International Inc. In Fountain Valley.Price received total compensation of $5.3 million last year. But most of it came in the form of stock options that he can’t cash in for several years.

Existing antibiotics work by disrupting the formation of a bacterium’s cell contents, but no current antibiotics target the DNA clamp, Oakley told Al Jazeera.But Oakley said the findings are a step in the right direction. “While our research is a long way from clinical trials, the fact that the bacteria killing effects of the anti inflammatories is different from conventional drugs means that they could be developed into new kinds of antibiotics,” he said in the news release..
