  • How do meteor showers affect planes?

    I guess the first question is generally, how close do the pieces of meteor come to the ground? If they do come within a planes flying altitude, would it be hazardous to planes? It would seem that one could pierce a plane fairly easily considering how fast they are...

  • Do University's have to abide by simple US Constitution laws?

    The Parking and Transportation Department of my University (in Texas) requires that in order to submit an appeal to the Appeal Officer's decision, I must also submit payment and that if the appeal reverses the decision of the appeals officer, then they will refund my money. It also says this could take up to 45 days. If the University and... show more
    The Parking and Transportation Department of my University (in Texas) requires that in order to submit an appeal to the Appeal Officer's decision, I must also submit payment and that if the appeal reverses the decision of the appeals officer, then they will refund my money. It also says this could take up to 45 days. If the University and it's sub-committees must abide by the "supreme" law of the land, as all of our states do, then the due process law would apply and they would be in violation...right? So, back to the original question...does the University have to abide by the US Constitution?

She suggested that I just have in black and white "Man Card" printed on the card as the image. I submitted it to Capital One and it was denied because apparently "Man Card" is copyrighted. But I can't find anywhere that that phrase is copyrighted. I mean it is so widely used...Officialmancard.com was the closest I found...but the copyright on their page covers "Official Man Card" not "Man Card"

    Okay, so I am a 21 year old college student taking an introductory Business law Course so my legal principles are vague and apply to most situations without specification. This question that I pose has to do with Towing, the policies tow companies impose, and the release of the vehicle. First off, through my own research I have found that the majority of cases against tow companies are disputing the actual tow. Though technically I was right to park there I am NOT arguing the actual tow. The tow company had probable cause to tow my vehicle. Moving on. What I plan on filing suit for is violation of 5th and 14th amendment rights to the deprivation of property without due process. Currently, if you are towed by non-consent for trespassing, you are not notified in anyway and charged by the calender day for impound fees. By the time you figure out your car was towed, the first thought running through your mind was a stolen car. So you call 911 and they inform you of the tow. That is emotional distress!!! Anyways, the tow company holds your car until they receive full payment. This means that they will deprive you of your car until you pay in full the amount without a hearing. You have to sign the documents they hand you and pay in cash or debit (no credit) before they release the car. It would be my understanding that the signing of these documents would be under duress, therefore voiding any contract you may have to agree to. This includes the receipt that you sign for your debit card and the paper agreeing to pay the amount. Nevertheless, my point is that because they hold your car until full payment received and do not offer multiple payment options, or have state regulated prices (meaning they could charge $500 if they wanted to) that they are in violation of 5th and 14th amendment rights... Someone PLEASE tell me why I am wrong on this so I can get over it...if not I will be filing suit tomorrow The State is Texas, County of Travis, and City of Austin Thoughts?

    My Business Law professor was telling us about this case that he lost and no longer knows how to find. He talks about it in the text book he wrote. "In the classical case of the sale of a Stradivarius violin, the parties agreed to buy and sell a violin for a nominal amount of money. Later it is discovered that the violin was no ordinary violin, but a Stradivarius Violin worth millions of dollars. The seller sues to recover the Stradivarius violin, arguing that it was a mutual mistake of fact. The holding of the case was that they were not mistaken of the fact. They both knew that they were buying and selling a particular violin and that the court does not decide the value of an item. Hence, the contract could not be rescinded and someone became very rich...

    Last Wednesday I was fired for a "No Call/ No show" from a car dealership. My position was a Valet/ Porter, pretty expendable. I have worked there full time for 9 months. I was scheduled to work Friday, February 29th and Saturday, March 1st. I came in, on time Friday with a back problem...I tried my best to fight through it but it was too painful. I talked to my supervisor and asked him if I could go see a doctor. He said "yes, please." I told him I would probably not be able to come in tomorrow (Saturday, March 1st) and asked him to find someone to cover for me. He said "Okay, hope you feel better." Called the military hotline for medical. No appointments through next week. I tried to tough it out by lying in bed. I ended up going to the Emergency Room on Saturday. Way too much pain. Was in the waiting room for 7 hours (literally) and was seen by a doctor. She called it a muscle spasm. Gave me prescription and doctors note. Called in Monday and Tuesday. Fired on Wednesday. Help???
