May 10, 1962 was a beautiful spring day in Flint, Michigan. The Apple Blossom trees were blooming, and you could see a cloud of yellow pollen infiltrating the automobiles, homes and everything else in sight. Yes indeed, spring had arrived, not quite, but the presence and aroma were in the air. It was a season the people of Michigan had looked passionately forward to seeing. It was a time to heal, a time to console, a time to forget and a time to move forward after a tragic and blistering winter. Michigan, infamously known for its cold and below freezing temperatures would claim its third coldest winter on record. On Tuesday, January 16, 1962, what began as a weak system moving into the region earlier during the day, amassed into a devastating blizzard. By late afternoon, snow accumulations were already at 15-18 inches over the southern region of the state. As if that wasn’t enough, the headline on the special weather statement that was issued by the National Weather Service Tuesday evening read as follows: “Another Winter Storm Threatens Lower Michigan” and thus, a second winter storm watch were officially posted. The phasing of two distinct jet streams aloft proved to be the key as to the subsequent strength and massive extent of the brutal storm. A travel advisory was issued to stay off roads if possible and to stay indoors. Early Wednesday morning, the storm had changed from snow to sleet and freezing rains.
With temperatures dropping below freezing, this would prove to be treacherous. Power lines were snapped by numerous tree limbs bearing the brunt of the masses of ice on them. Over 35,000 people throughout the central region were powerless. The roadways were deathtraps because of the ice and wind gushing drifts of snow. Cars were found on the roads dead, with snow covering them like a white blanket. Many were with shovels tirelessly trying to free themselves…...

...Shrink-wrap agreements are sometimes called shrink-wrap licenses and are the internet equivalent of click-on agreements. A shrink-wrap agreement is an agreement whose terms are expressed inside a box in which the goods are packaged. Normally, a shrink-wrap agreement is not between a retailer and a buyer, but between the user or buyer of the product and the manufacturer of the hardware or software (Miller & Jentz, 2008). Many courts have determined that the seller has proposed a contract by including the terms with the product that a buyer could accept after reading the terms and using the product. A buyer’s failure to object to the terms contained within a shrink-wrap software package constitutes an acceptance of the terms by conduct. In this case the terms of the shrink-wrap agreement will be enforced by the courts. Shrink-wrap agreements will not be enforced by the courts if it is determined that the seller communicates the terms after a contract has been formed with a buyer. Under these conditions the courts would find the terms were not a part of the contract unless the buyer agreed to them (Miller & Jentz, 2008). In Mary DeFontes’ case she purchased the computer which contained an agreement that included the remedies available and the terms of the sale. By keeping the computer and using it for longer than thirty days and failing to object to the terms, it looks as if DeFontes is in acceptance of these terms. Dell’s website included an inconspicuous link at the......

The program was started in 1984 to develop operating systems that were similar to UNIX. He thought in order to protect software from being made proprietary; it was he who made it a derivative of copyright law that serves “the opposite of its usual purpose”. ("Gnu General Public License (Gnu GPL or Simply GPL", 2008) The General Public License abbreviations can be GNU or GPL.

Drivers License

...Driver’s License at 14 Proposal: The new law for the year of 2015 is, being able to get your driver’s license at the age of 14. Rationale: Getting your driver’s license at 14 years of age will be helpful for a lot of teenagers because it will be easier for them to get to work by the time their 15 years old. If they get their G1 at 14 they will have their G2 by the age of 15 so, they don’t have to worry about getting their parents or guardians in the vehicle with them to go to work. By the age of 15, you have to have their own motorized vehicle. By making gas a lot cheaper (60 cents) it will be easier for teenagers to get gas for their vehicles to get to and from their jobs. It also should be cheaper because it will be easier for teenagers to get gas on a minimum wage payment. They cannot have children 10 and younger in the vehicle until you get your full G license at the age of 16. If you are pulled over without your license on you more than two times, you will get charged. The first two times you will be allowed to carry on with your day. It is illegal to drink alcohol in that whole day you are planning to drive, not even one glass of wine until you get your full G. Support and Non-Support: The government and local teens will support our idea. They will support this idea because, the government will think this is a great idea for future jobs 14 year olds will plan on getting when their 15 and teenagers will also think this is great so they don’t have to worry...
