In the past three years, there has been a substantial amount of commentary attesting to the importance of independent compensation consulting advice to aligning executive pay with corporate performance. We summarize these documents below, from A to F, beginning with the groundbreaking “Restoring the Public Trust” in January 2003 and ending with a March 2006 article in the NewYork Times questioning the independence of compensation consulting advice. A point to note is that the Conference Board may have reversed its position on the issue of independent compensation consulting advice. In September 2005, a Conference Board report by a working group composed of human resource executives and compensation consultants (and one corporate governance expert who dissented from the working group’s report) suggested that a single consultant could avoid “non-constructive behavior” by using the firm’s Diversified Consulting Firm as their compensation consultant so as to not “deprive the Company of the firm’s talents.” 10
The aforementioned demand generators are only the tip of the iceberg when considering the diverse supply of NewYork City demand generators for hotels. Not mentioned in detail are major attractions such as Central Park, Times Square, the Statue of Liberty, luxury shopping on 5th and Madison Avenues, Ellis Island, the NewYork Botanical Garden and the Empire State Building among many others. The World Trade Center site is one of the city’s newest and largest tourist attractions, attracting millions to the site annually. The City’s wealth of demand
One very influential analytical tool in current legal study has been the Law and Economics Movement.13 According to legal economists, law ought to consist of rules that maximise a society’s material wealth and abet the efficient operation of markets designed to generate wealth. Economic analysis has been extended to a wide range of human behaviours and interactions that had been traditionally considered outside the boundaries of this discipline. The theory-building potential of economic methods, however, has met with resistance from legal professionals, for the analytical models used by economists to generate predictions and propose reforms are often regarded as simplified and sometimes counterfactual assumptions about the empirical world. As a relatively new methodology, economic analysis can provide a new, pragmatic and empirical view and respond in particularly technical ways to legal issues in the regulatory environment. Although it could be argued that reduced expenses or cost- savings is not the essence of arbitration and the arbitration agreement determines the process, an economic approach to arbitration is useful to illustrate some critical issues in international commercial arbitration such as the relationship between arbitration institutions and courts and the cooperation among signatory states to the NewYork Convention. Among others, game theory has been utilised by legal scholars to study the legal phenomena such as jurisdictional competition and legal harmonisation in a number of legal areas such as corporation law, securities regulations, labour standards and environment protection rules. The basic idea is that the states act in their self-interest like private parties in the game, which requires a “federalism” system in place to harmonise self-interest-oriented national rules. Game theory has often been used to study the substantive law. Procedural rules in arbitration and litigation have rarely been tested. It will be interesting to see if game theory can be used in arbitration to study the possibility of harmonising national rules in the trend of de-localisation and, in a wider sense, globalisation.
Fundamental to both Sidaway’s and Kuus’ arguments (see, in this context, also Gregory and Pred, 2007; in particular the contribution on banal terrorism by Cindi Katz, 2007) is an alarming reminder of the growing (and constructed) normalcy of various forms of militarism. In this observation we use the extraordinary example of the USS NewYork, to remind us as well as the reader to raise awareness to this, by now, ordinary or mundane politics. Precisely because we see it every day, this observation highlights the importance of critical reflection upon such mundane practices of the demonstration not only of military force but also the militarisation in everyday life. Through such practices, militarisation often turns into what Cynthia Enloe (2000, p. 3) describes as a ‘pervasive process’ that is so “hard to uproot, precisely because in its everyday forms it scarcely looks life threatening” and therefore runs danger of being forgotten or becoming ‘banal’ (Kuus, 2007, 2008; Sidaway, 2001, 2003, 2008).
There were few significant NewYork cases involving oil and gas in the past year due to New York’s continuing moratorium on high-volume hydraulic fracturing operations, which are necessary for development of unconventional oil and gas formations. The most notable decision was the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York’s decision to permit an exploration and production company to reject midstream gathering contracts in a Chapter 11 reorganization. The Sabine case is of special significance because of the impact on future agreements between exploration and production companies and midstream companies, particularly when an exploration and production company would like a midstream company to incur significant capital expenditures to extend its pipelines service to a producer. In another case, a landowner attempted to challenge the moratorium, but was held to lack standing because he had not applied for a drilling permit.
The Appellate Division Third Department was then asked to determine “whether a landlord's knowledge of peeling and chipping paint in the leased premises constituted constructive notice of a dangerous or defective condition such that the landlord could be liable for the lead poisoning of an infant tenant”. The Appellate Division reversed, finding that knowledge of peeling paint was not the legal equivalent of constructive notice of the presence of lead-based paint. The Appellate Division distinguished Chapman from Juarez in that the owners in Juarez owned a multiple-dwelling unit in NewYork City, rather than a two-family residence. Significantly, NewYork City had enacted legislation which, in effect, provided for constructive notice to landlords of hazardous lead conditions in those apartments erected prior to 1960 where landlords know that they are occupied by children six years old or younger (See, Administrative Code of City of NY §§ 27-2056.1 [a] ; 27-2056.4). In lead paint cases arising outside of NewYork City, however, it was well established that knowledge by a landlord that a leased premises contains peeling and chipping paint was not constructive notice that a lead hazard existed on that premises. Although, general premises liability imposed a duty on a landlord to maintain the premises in a reasonably safe condition, 16 the NewYork City Administrative Code
(“NYFRB”) in May 2009 and reported regularly to regulators about its integration progress. 27. In 2009, Commerzbank Group Audit conducted an audit of the NewYork Branch’s compliance program. The overall assessment of the NewYork Branch’s AML compliance program was “fair,” which equated to a score of three on a five-point scale. According to numerous Commerzbank NewYork Branch compliance officials, the 2009 AML audit report of NewYork Branch was among the most negative internal audit reports in memory. The audit found the NewYork Branch’s AML compliance program lacking in several important ways. The report detailed weaknesses in transaction monitoring, customer profile monitoring, and know-your-customer processes, as well as general IT infrastructure deficiencies that affected the AML program.
If the landlord/owner does not make the repairs in the order to correct, you ask the court for another court date to tell the Judge. See page 24 on how to go back to court to ask the Judge to do something on your case. On the new court date, the Judge may order the landlord/owner to pay a fine to the City of NewYork if the Judge decided that the landlord/owner did not do the repairs in the order to correct. In some cases, the landlord/owner may even be jailed.

Child Care Centers. The NewYork State Office of Children and Family Services licenses all home-based day care centers in NewYork City and the State, while DOHMH issues permits to all day care centers that operate with more than 16 children or operate outside a home. However, the Department is tasked with inspecting all day cares in the City, including those that are licensed by the State. In early May 2016, Governor Cuomo announced legislation to implement more aggressive enforcement tools, tougher penalties, and greater transparency to the oversight of child care programs in the State. The proposed legislation would increase penalties for State-regulated child care providers cited for serious violations and for providers operating illegally, with fines increasing from $500 to $5,000 per day.
trivium and quadrivium: where three or four vias or paths meet and form a whole, i.e., intersections leading to harmony and wisdom. Concordia College is also a universitas in the Lutheran tradition (universitas is Latin for the whole, total, the universe, and, literally, all turned toward and into one), a polis of higher learning of teachers, scholars, administrators, coaches and staff who instruct, serve and guide students through the intersections of faith and reason, vocations and the Lutheran understanding of the two kingdoms, and passive and active righteousness. As a whole (Concordia College–NewYork as Lutheran polis and universitas), we are turned toward Christ, the Word and Wisdom of

The Trusts and Estates Law Section is actively involved in all aspects of estate practice by analyzing topical issues, drafting new legislation and providing relevant continuing legal education to practitioners. The Section has been in the forefront of proposing significant legislation which has enhanced the practice of trusts and estates law, such as the enactment of the NewYork State SOP tax, the creation of unified forms throughout the Surrogate’s Court system referred to as “HOT DOCs” and ratification of the attorney-client privilege between counsel and a fiduciary. It is enormously rewarding to play a role in the development of the law which governs the trusts and estates law practice.
established in the United States Supreme Court for cases brought under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (http://www.eeoc.gov/policy/vii.html). 87 The main differences between federal and state coverage are 1) that your employer must have 15 or more employees in order to file a Title VII (http://www.eeoc.gov/policy/vii.html) claim and only 4 or more for a state claim; 2) that the statute of limitations is three years for a state claim, while you must file with the EEOC (www.eeoc.gov) within 180 days of the most recent incident for a federal claim; and 3) that under federal law you can be awarded up to $50,000 in combined compensatory and punitive damages, whereas under NewYork State law (http://www.nysdhr.com/hrlaw.html), punitive damages are not available and there is no limit on compensatory damages. 88

Another limita3on is that although individuals placed in NY/NY III for a full 12 months are not likely to have le$ NewYork City and State for extended periods of 3me, individuals not placed in NY/NY III may have done so and incurred public expenses in other locali3es that were not captured by this evalua3on. Similar to the missed out-of-state costs, some public services, beneﬁts, and incarcera3on costs were not available for this report. For example, data were not included on the u3liza3on of prisons, and individuals who applied to NY/NY III but were not placed may have spent 3me in prisons, where costs of services and beneﬁts included in this analysis would not have been incurred. Among unplaced individuals, 93 were in NYC jails and released to prison during their ﬁrst year a$er applying to NY/NY III, represen3ng between zero and three percent of each of the NY/NY III popula3ons of unplaced individuals. Other data not included were substance use services funded by the NewYork State Oﬃce of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) (for example, residen3al treatment), and hospitaliza3ons and emergency department visits not covered by Medicaid.
