The current labor agreement wasn’t magically created, it was signed in 1993. The Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) as we know it now was the culmination of player strikes, antitrust lawsuits and all sorts of other league turmoil. Eventually, the players agreed to a salary cap in return for free agency and an enhanced share of league revenues.
Since then, the CBA has been extended several times, most recently in 2006. Seeing as how the 2006 extension passed by an overwhelming 30-2 vote among league owners, you’d think they would be fine with just extending the current agreement as it stands now. That couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, the reason we’re even talking about this now is because in 2008, a mere two years after the extension was signed, the owners unanimously voted to opt out of the agreement two years early (Brown).
The concrete agreement might have seemed like a great idea at the time, but now the owner’s feel like the they were cheated. The theory is that former NFLPA executive director, Gene Upshaw caught the NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue in a moment of weakness and capitalized on the situation to push through an extension that would be feasible for the players only (Brown). Tagliabue was preparing to step down from his 17-year tenure as NFL Commissioner, which was marked by an unprecedented lack of labor strife. Not wanting to tarnish that legacy of harmonious relations between players and owners, Tagliabue was allegedly persuaded by Upshaw to sell the owners on a deal that gave players a 59.6% cut of revenues (Brown).
The owners were given a new revenue sharing plan with the new deal, which would make the league’s 15 most profitable franchises make payments to help subsidize the 17 least profitable franchises (Brown). In the present time the negotiation seemed feasible to accept, but once the owners really analyzed the cost and…...

...Final Paper Courtney George ISCOM/476 April 1, 2013 Debra Foland Final Paper The area that I believe that is important to any supply chain that will provide success in customer satisfaction is measuring performance. Setting up the appropriate metrics to measure the effectiveness of the supply chain will highlight areas needing improvement to meet the customers’ requirements. Metrics in the supply chain areas will certify an effective and efficient supply chain and room for improvements. With the market changing and competition increasing at such a fast pace it is imperative to have metrics set up to gain competitive advantage. Setting up appropriate metrics that align with the strategic plan will verify effectiveness of the supply chain or validate that improvements need to be made. These metrics can measure how the supply chain is functioning in different areas to make sure that it is functioning correctly and meeting demands. The processes in the supply chain must be mapped to the main metrics to control performance. There must a process that is in place to review the actual supply chain performance and redefine the metrics with changing business. A combined single view of supply chain performance across functions and chain of command is crucial to help management quickly conclude the causes of adversities. Measuring significance of the supply chain to profitability is the core drive why managers use metrics for supply chain performance. There is more to......

...Final Reflection Paper My internship site was at a high school located in the LAUSD nearby UCLA. The teacher I was assigned to work with was Ms. Lilly (names changed for privacy.) During the course of the internship, I got to know Ms. Lilly a lot better as she became more comfortable with me working with her in the classroom. Ms. Lilly teaches a variety of grade levels. She teaches 9th grade Honors English, 10th Grade AVID, a mixed grades writing seminar elective, and 12th grade AP English. Ms. Lilly had been teaching for 19 years at this high school. She received her credential at Loyola Marymount University. She began teaching because she loves English and loves working with kids. She thought it would be fun to combine the both together. I noticed that the biggest challenges for Ms. Lilly in the classroom are class size and having access to technology. Ms. Lilly said that classes in the past for 9th and 10th grade used to be limited to 20 students to 1 teacher ratio. The goal of this is to establish a strong foundation for the students before entering the larger class sizes of the upper grades. She has 29 students in her first period and 33 students in her fifth period. I noticed that it was hard for her to focus her attention on everything that was going on in the classroom because there were so many students doing various activities. Many would come up to her to ask questions and she seemed flustered at times. I feel like her job was made even......

These stories provide a behind-the-scenes look at the often unknown stress, joy, and effort involved in being a doctor, law enforcement agent, or even a chef. What do you think the day-to-day life of a mental health counselor is like? What constitutes a typical day for a mental health counselor, or is there no such thing? For the Final Project in this course, you uncover the hidden realities of the daily life of a mental health counselor. The Final Project requires you to interview (in person) a licensed mental health counselor who works with a population in a setting that interests you. For example, if you are interested in working as an in-home counselor with children diagnosed with mood disorders, interview someone who does this work. You then apply the information from this course, as well as in an interview you conduct, to your understanding of what it means to be a mental health counselor. *Please note that it is NOT acceptable to interview a psychiatrist, psychologist, social worker, addictions specialist, school counselor, or other mental health provider for this assignment.

...Negotiations Analysis Negotiation Analysis Paper Ivania Castaneda HR595- Keller School of Management March 2013 Introduction Buying a home is a complicated and time consuming process. The purchase of a home is just one of many examples of negotiations that happen in everyday life. It is one of the few places in life where some form of negotiation is the rule rather than the exception. Not all people are effective negotiators. It takes a keen understanding of the process in order to be good at it. This class has provided tools via the review of key concepts and methodology to allow even the not so adept negotiator to be better at negotiating. By informing yourself, preparing, and keeping an objective mind frame we can all use the tools taught in class to become more successful next time a negotiation situation arises. My paper will focus on integrative bargaining. Integrative bargaining (also called "interest-based bargaining," "win-win bargaining") is a negotiation strategy in which parties collaborate to find a "win-win" solution to their situation. This strategy focuses on developing mutually beneficial agreements based on the interests of both parties. This negotiation approach is important because it usually results in more of a positive outcome in contrast to distributive bargaining. The first step in integrative bargaining is identifying each side's interests. Although distributive bargaining is frequently seen as the opposite of integrative bargaining, the......

...Shuo Sun – Anthro R5B - Final Paper Outline Abstract: In “The art of not being governed”, James Scott uses the example of the hill people living in the mountain region of Zomia and argued that instead of being primitive form of living, barbarians, or human beings leftover from pre-state era, these hill people deliberately move to inaccessible region to avoid state control. Scott states that the inaccessibility of the hills make them natural escape routes that can be used to avoid the sovereignty of state government. Scott briefly talks about the examples of how the defeated Kuomintang in the 1950s and the remnants from Taiping Rebellion both escaped to the mountains, but fails to talk about what happen to these people after that. In this paper, I would like to work on this missing information and find data to evaluate whether these people converted themselves to hill people permanently or did they use the resources in the hills to fight back against the state. The aim of this paper is to find out whether the primary or secondary sources concur with Scott’s arguments and discuss about the mechanism of using hills as escape routes in more details. Outline: 1. Introduction: The section introduces Scott and his book, “The art of not being governed” and points the reader to the specify topic that I will be focusing on in this paper.

As a newly hired Corporate Controller for this company, I have been assigned the task of developing and overlooking a new plan made by the CEO that will use some of the shingle scrap materials to build cedar houses.

The Risk profile for this company includes several different factors that are mostly due to current market conditions, and the level of risk the company will face by adding extra inventory and expenses. Unfortunately risk is a reality of doing business, whether the company is large or small, public or private, risk will always be present since nothing on the business world warrants a guarantee. Some of the key risk points are: Inventory represents a big portion of the cash flow, therefore having extra inventory on hand will have an impact on the company's future cash...

...instructor, choose a topic for your final 7-10 page research paper that addresses a topic other than that of your Oral Presentation. While your paper may be on any topic related to course materials; it must synthesize material addressed throughout the semester. For example, if you decide to write about visual culture of hip hop, you should probably refer to Tricia Rose's arguments about "preferred transcripts" suggested by music videos and Todd Boyd's conception of "hyperreal" cinematic imagery. FINAL PAPER INSTRUCTIONS: Your paper should also incorporate research that extends beyond the boundaries of materials on our syllabus. You should also be sure to construct an argument and offer a critique of assumptions surrounding your argument. The most successful papers will allow the "messiness" of researching popular culture to foreground contradictions implicit in your arguments. For example, if you want to argue that misogyny is less of a concern in 2006 than it was in 1995 because many of the gangsta rap groups responsible for "bitch-ho" rhetoric have disbanded, you would probably want to underscore the pervasive lack of feminist female representation in any hip hop idiom in 2002. In other words, less gangsta rap has not meant more positive heterosocial conditions for the production of hip hop. This is a research paper, and it will be graded according to standards of college-level humanities writing. Your paper must be typewritten, double-spaced,...

...ideologies in America is that women are socially pressured to stay out of the work place. Men are culturally understood as being the breadwinners in order to support their wives and children at home. By being expected and sometimes forced to stay in the home, women, on the other hand, have effectively been denied the rights and opportunities that males have reserved for themselves in society. As a result, women do not have an equal chance of obtaining success in the job markets of today.
