This collection of 25 Hercule Poirot adventures by Agatha Christie are compiled from short stories written for The Sketch magazine from March to December 1923.<br /><br />Hercule Poirot delighted in telling people that he was probably the best detective in the world. So turning back the clock to trace eighteen of the cases which helped establish his professional reputation was always going to be a fascinating experience. With his career still in its formative years, the panache with which Hercule Poirot could solve even the most puzzling mystery is obvious.

You're considering the case of a maintenance worker injured while repairing an elevator, or an elderly woman hurt on a department store escalator while doing some weekend shopping with her grandchildren. An initial search of the literature has turned up almost nothing useful. Your instinct tells you the cases are good, but to evaluate them properly, you need this new addition to our litigation series.<br /><br />The key questions are: what caused the accident, and what were the contributory factors? Some accidents have an element of "in the wrong place at the wrong time" about them, while others have an element of disregard for the equipment involved. Sadly, others fall into the category of sheer negligence or incompetence. This book will help you determine the difference. This new third edition revises and adds new content, with the most up-to-date information to help you succeed in these cases.<br /><br />The authors have investigated numerous elevator and escalator accidents. Their expertise will guide you as you make your decision to take or reject the cases, and their experience will give you the basic understanding of the issues you need to understand to proceed with confidence.

<P><EM>Disability and Shopping:Customers, Markets and the State</EM> provides an examination of the diverse experiences and perspectives of disabled customers, industry and civil society. It discusses how the interaction between the three stakeholders should be shaped at aiming to decrease inequality and marginalisation.</P><br /><P>Shopping is a part of everyday modern life and yet businesses struggle to adequately meet the needs of 80 million disabled customers in the European Union single market. While there has been extensive research into how individuals engage in customer roles and experience, and how businesses and policies both shape and respond to these, little is known of the same dynamics and practices regarding people with impairments. This book addresses this need by revealing the perspectives, interactions and experiences of disabled customers and their interaction with policy and business. </P><br /><P>It will be required reading for all scholars and students of disability studies, sociology, marketing and customer relations. </P>

Product Description
Customer Reviews
This monograph intervenes in the long-standing and controversial debate on the socio-economic orientation of the European Union. Arguing that the European economic constitution is pluralist in the sense that it does not favour any specific socio-economic paradigm, it shows that European law allows the pursuit of very different regulatory projects by the European and the national legislators. This pluralist character of the European economic constitution stands in an uncomfortable relationship with the policies currently pursued by the European Union, which are often neoliberal in their orientation. The book takes an interdisciplinary approach: it analyses the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union as interpreted and developed in the case law of the Court of Justice, its history, and its regulatory purpose in the light of conflicting socio-economic paradigms.<br />By challenging the orthodoxy, the book makes a bold proposition that will likely resonate in both European economic law scholarship and European law in general. With the ongoing economic crisis triggering a significant interest in economic questions among legal scholars it is particularly timely and topical.

Anacronismos como la inexistencia de ligas profesionales femeninas, la falta de reconocimiento del derecho laboral deportivo, así como su deficiente representación en las estructuras institucionales hacen palpable esta situación.

What if you had total control overyour hours and weekends?<br />What if you didn’t have toanswer to anyone?<br />What if you took control over your future?<br /><br />When you work for someone else, you don’t control your future. Your boss decides how much money you make and how many hours you work. For many, the law is just a job that you do to make ends meet and pay the bills.<br /><br />It’s time to change that<br /><br />It’s not just about work and money. It’s about loving what you do and looking forward to coming to work. It’s about spending time with your family and living a fun life.<br /><br />It’s time you make the rules<br /><br />For the first time, you have in your hands the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial secrets to running a multi-million dollar law firm.

IT’S TIME TO BREAK ALL OF THE RULES so you have the one thing that all lawyers should seek: autonomy to live life on your terms.<br /><br />THE POWER OF A SYSTEM<br /><br />Torts, contracts, constitutional law…you got your fill in law school of theoretical concepts that you need to pass the bar exam. But then a funny thing happened, you got out of law school, opened your new law firm and you realized something—no one ever taught you how to run your own law firm in law school.<br /><br />Suddenly, you’re on your own with fancy new letterhead, a few clients and not much else. Your dusty law school books aren’t much help. It’s great to have your book smarts and fancy law degree but how do you pay the bills every Friday when your staff wants their paycheck? You pull your hair out wondering how you got yourself into this mess.<br /><br />This book was written for you.<br /><br />You are not alone. Yes, others have done the same thing before you and believe it or not, there are tried and proven recipes for success. Instead of fumbling around like the other lawyers in your town and just waiting for your phone to ring with your next case, you study the recipe and principles for a big-time injury law firm and little by little you begin implementing systems into your new law firm.<br />You have in your hands tried and proven systems for the injury law firm of your dreams. It’s not just the technical aspects of running your own law firm, but the managerial and entrepreneurial principles that you must have to keep a constant stream of new cases and clients coming down the pipe. And no, these are not law school theoretical concepts but the technical, managerial and entrepreneurial “how to” steps that have been tried and tested over years of trial and error.<br /><br />You won’t find a book like this in your law school library…or anywhere else.<br /><br />Law school’s out—no more time for theoretical concepts—it’s time to get bills paid, move cases to trial, start making money and begin living life on your terms.<br /><br /><br />All royalties from the sale of this book are donated to Doc to Dock, Inc., an amazing nonprofit organization based in New York that collects unused and unwanted medical supplies from around the country and ships them to hospitals and clinics in impoverished Third World nations in Africa and Haiti.<br /><br />Every day tons of unused medical supplies and equipment are incinerated or tossed into landfills in the U.S. Rather than letting the unused medical supplies go to waste, Doc to Dock, Inc. collects the donated medical supplies consisting of basic medical devices such as catheters and ultrasound machines, and transports them to developing countries where they are needed the most. Doc to Dock, Inc. has provided shipments to 18 different countries in the poorest regions of sub-Saharan Africa and has made a huge difference in preventing very curable and basic illnesses that are often life-threatening in Africa due to their lack of medical supplies.
