The meeting was started directly at 7:00pm. The pledge was sung. The members did a roll call to see if all were in attendance. Two were not; they arrived 15-20 minutes late. They went over old business from the minutes of secretary, Sherri Parks. The meeting was being ran by Robert’s Rules of Order. New business is started with the Road Commissioner, Raymond Van Guilder talking about a village pipe that is plugged that will flood several homes if not fixed. The board does not like this because they have to fix it, but they don’t want to pay for it. Road commissioner tells village board that they are responsible by law to fix the pipe or be possibly sued in the future. The board looks at the price and different companies that can do it. They fight over it for a good 15 minutes. Next they move on to street and alleys maintenance. They talked about the new sidewalks and playground areas. They talked about the renovation of the old sportsmen building. They bring up a proposal of a bike trail around the quarry area and talk of a trail connecting to Custer Park. A state grant would foot the cost of this project! Ordinances and other village business were talked about. They want to sell a mosquito sprayer to anyone who wants it. They talked about a flood plain ordinance but it wasn’t relevant because the county has never created a flood map! They talked about police reports and then the public had its say in the meeting. An old lady complained about water standing in her yard and driveway. An old man complained about hearing roosters in town, hearing barking dogs, and his neighbors’ cats, abandoned cars, and plants that were over 8 inches tall. They also talked about removing the pop machines due to many recent…...

...league of friendship” among the states. * Powers of the Article of Confederation was that Congress was given power to declare war, deal with national financial issues, and settle disputes among the States. Obligations of the Article of Confederation was that States promised to obey Congress, and to respect the laws of the other States. Most other powers were retained by each States. * Some of the weakness of the Articles of Confederation was the one vote for each States, regardless of size; no executive to enforce acts of Congress, and no national court system. * Representatives from Maryland and Virginia met at Mount Vernon, Virginia, in 1785 to discuss trade issues. * The meeting was so successful that the Virginia General Assembly requested a meeting of all thirteen States, which eventually became the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. * The Virginia Plan consisted of three branches of government, bicameral legislature, and a “National Executive/ National Judiciary”. * The New Jersey Plan consisted of a unicameral Congress, equal representation for states of different sizes, and more than one federal executive. * The Connecticut Compromise was where delegates agreed on a bicameral Congress, one segment with equal representation for States, and the other with representation proportionate to the States’ population. * The Three-Fifths Compromise was where the framers decided to count a slave as three-fifths of a......

...Review meeting minutes What strategies did you use to review the meeting minutes to ensure the information presented a true and accurate record of the discussions that occurred during the meeting? The below strategies were used to review the meeting minutes: * Thoroughly reading through all the information, rather than skimming. * Cross checking with other participants to ensure that collective memory was used and no details were left out. * Checking spelling and grammar; and * Referring to my own notes. | Detail the outcomes of your review regarding the accuracy of the information, spelling and grammar and the correct use of the template. Area | Review summary | Accuracy of information | The majority of information recorded was accurate, however, there were some dates which had been recorded the wrong way around. This could have been due to speed of discussion being too quick for the minute taker to keep up. | Spelling and grammar | Spelling could not be faulted, however, minutes were taken quickly, thereby causing grammatical errors. For example, sentences did not contain commas, or on occasion did not flow. | Correct use of template | The minute taker used the correct firm template throughout the meeting, following each agenda item and taking notes along the way. | Distributing meeting minutes Describe how you will distribute these meeting minutes and why you have chosen this method.

...videoconferencing and Web conferencing technologies. A June 2008 report issued by the Global e-Sustainability Initiative and the Climate Group estimated that up to 20 percent of business travel could be replaced by virtual meeting technology. A videoconference allows individuals at two or more locations to communicate through two-way video and audio transmissions at the same time. The critical feature of videoconferencing is the digital compression of audio and video streams by a device called a codec. Those streams are then divided into packets and transmitted over a network or the Internet. The technology has been plagued by poor audio and video performance in the past, usually related to the speed at which the streams were transmitted, and its cost was prohibitively high for all but the largest and most powerful corpora- tions. Most companies deemed videoconferencing as a poor substitute for face-to-face meetings. However, vast improvements in videoconferenc- ing and associated technologies have renewed interest in this way of working. Videoconferencing is now growing at an annual rate of 30 percent. Proponents of the technology claim that it does more than simply reduce costs. It allows for 'better' meetings as well: it's easier to meet with partners, suppliers, subsidiaries, and colleagues from within the office or around the world on a more frequent basis, which in most cases simply cannot be reason- ably......

It can also be seen in terms of the Institute of Directors and the Conservatives and right campaign group Liberty and the Liberal Democrats. How do pressure groups seek to influence government? It is best to describe methods in relation to the different types of group. The three marks available for analysis etc. (AO2) can be gained by linking methods to classifications accurately. Insider groups work largely within government. They seek to have places on policy committees and units, they provide regular written reports, often showing research findings (environment and business groups are examples), give evidence to parliamentary committees and try to arrange meetings directly with ministers and civil servants. They may also become directly involved in the drafting of legislation (e.g. the national Consumer Council or the Law Commission). Outsider groups – usually promotional groups – largely seek to mobilise public opinion. They do this to place their issues on the public and political agenda. They also try to persuade policy makers that many people support the issue and that the government may gain votes by supporting the group (note Help the Aged with its huge section of supporters) Typically they organise media campaigns (Jamie Oliver and school meals), organise public demonstrations (Make Poverty History) and may use stunts which gain publicity (Fathers 4 Justice). Sectional groups usually......

...” But Bakari Sellers, also an attorney and a state House member since 2007, said he is the only candidate who has “actually created a job for someone other than themselves.” “We have an ‘experience’ discussion, and the irony is, I’m some 30 years the junior, but I think I actually bring more experience to the table.” Sellers said that as a state representative, he helped bring 2,800 jobs to Bamberg, Barnwell and Orangeburg counties when a manufacturer moved to Denmark, Sellers’ hometown. “I can’t take credit, like the governor does, for all those jobs,” Sellers said. “But I’ve been in that room before, and that’s the irony in this whole discussion about experience.” Sellers also noted he has served in the House for two years longer than Gov. Nikki Haley before the Republican ran for governor, beating McMaster in the GOP primary. McMaster touted his four years as a U.S. attorney under President Ronald Reagan and his eight years as state attorney general, saying he worked with the Legislature to expand the investigative powers of the state grand jury and prosecuted a high-profile investment fraud case. McMaster said enlisting nonprofits and volunteer organizations to help provide services to seniors is part of his plan if elected. As attorney general, McMaster said he recruited volunteer attorneys to prosecute criminal domestic violence cases in special courts that he set up for that purpose “at no additional cost to the taxpayers.” “That is the spirit of volunteerism that......

...variety of ways. They can write their Representative or Senator, or work in for a candidate or political party. They can make presentations to their local school board or city council, or call the police to complain about the neighbor's dog. Partly because of our federalist system, people have many opportunities to participate in our democracy on federal, state, and local levels. Some forms of participation are more common than others and some citizens participate more than others, but almost everyone has a voice in government if they chose to. Not only do we the people have a say in the government of the United States, we have a say in the government in our state. Every state has counties and all counties have meetings called a City Council Meeting. In this meeting you can voice your opinion on what you think could be changed in the area you live in. Also, you can talk to the representatives on what they are planning to change and what they are planning to add. Overall, I truly believe people, weather you are wealthy or poor, have a say in the government. No matter if you live in a million dollar home or a trailer, your opinion matters. The government changed to meet our needs, the least we can do is step up and try to help make the United States a better place to call home....

Currently, there are more than 20,000 students are studying in Swinburne university. Now, during the usual time, the opening hours of the library are from 8am to 5pm daily. Except during the examination period, the library is open for 24 hours daily for two weeks or otherwise the library is open from 8am to 5pm daily. As the library is a place for students to do revision, to study, to do assignment, discussion, to look for information and so on. So now that students have requested to extend the library’s opening hours till 12 midnight daily. However, if we were to extend the library opening hours, there will be not enough staff to maintain the extended opening hours. So others are suggesting that we hire part time students to cover the later hours with minimal full time staff. Moreover, some......
