Case Study: The World Business Forum (WBF)

Being held for the first time in Australia in May 2014, the World Business Forum offered business leaders the opportunity to hear influential minds and legendary CEOs discuss global issues and trends.

The Star Event Centre was selected to be the venue for the inaugural Australian conference, hosting the largest collection of senior executives for an event of its type. The impressive lineup of speakers included the former Director of Marketing of Facebook, Randi Zuckerberg, The Hon. John Howard and Professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

The Event Centre was at full capacity, set theatre style for the 1,750 attendees plus all four suites on level 5 were in action for VIPs and corporate sponsors. Breakout spaces in the foyer of the Event Centre and on Sky Terrace featured eight sponsor stands of varying sizes and food stations showcasing Australia’s freshest cuisine like QLD Spanner Crab meat and avocado brioche.

Speakers, VIPs and sponsors enjoyed a three course lunch in The Attic in the Event Centre, and at Bistro 80, whilst other guests ventured throughout the property to dine and hold meetings at signature restaurants including Balla. BLACK by ezard and Sokyo and in The Star’s own food court.

Volunteers from a hotel management school were recruited to direct guests internally and externally to the property assisting with traffic flow.

Aware that time is an executive’s most precious commodity, The Star meticulously planned the two-day event for all guests, from the speedy registration process onsite and clear signage, to the prompt catering at all tea breaks and flawless VIP management; a seamless and memorable experience was had by all.

In addition, custom menus were implemented across the property ensuring World Business Forum attendees’ lunch breaks were well timed and afternoon sessions could get underway on schedule.

Impressing all guests, Sydney put on an absolutely stunning couple of days of weather which allowed guests to utilise Sky Terrace for all morning and afternoon tea breaks, avoiding the need for well-established wet weather plans.

The 2014 conference offered accommodation across The Star’s two hotels to delegates. Responding to attendees’ desire to stay on site, for the 2015 conference, The Star has partnered with their client offering a discount code for accommodation at both The Darling and Astral Towers and Residences.

The 2014 World Business Forum was a major success, and has chosen to hold the 2015 conference at the same venue The Star for the second consecutive year, 27 – 28 May 2015.

The 2015 conference was another outstanding event that featured a stellar line up of speakers including Lynda Gratton, Professor at the London Business School, Steve Wozniak, the pioneer who co-founded Apple and Ben Bernanke, two-term Chairman of the Federal Reserve System.

The launch of the World Business Forum Sydney last year was a huge success with 2173 senior-level executives in attendance Australia s largest business management event.

The Star were instrumental in the planning and delivery of the Forum to ensure we exceeded expectations for both executives and sponsors. This was definitely achieved, as 100% of all executives surveyed mentioned that they would return again.

We look forward to working with the team at The Star again on the World Business Forum Sydney 2015 which will be held on 27th 28th May.

Synovial Fluid Analysis

Synovial fluid analysis is a group of tests that examine joint (synovial) fluid. The tests help diagnose and treat joint-related problems.

Alternative Names

Joint fluid analysis; Joint fluid aspiration

How the test is performed

A sample of synovial fluid is needed for this test. Synovial fluid is normally a thick, straw-colored liquid found in small amounts in joints, bursae, and tendon sheaths.

After the area is cleaned, the health care provider will insert a sterile needle through the skin and into the joint space. Once in the joint, fluid is drawn through the needle into a sterile syringe.

The fluid sample is sent to the laboratory. The laboratory technician will check the sample’s color and clarity, and then place it under a microscope to check it for red and white blood cells, crystals (in the case of gout), and bacteria. In addition, there may be a chemical analysis, and if infection is a concern, a sample will be cultured to see if any bacteria grow.

How to prepare for the test

Normally, no special preparation is necessary, but contact your health care provider before the test to make sure. Tell your doctor if you are taking blood thinners, as they can affect test results.

How the test will feel

Occasionally, the health care provider will first inject local anesthesia with a small needle, which will sting. The aspiration is done with a larger needle and may also cause some pain. The procedure usually lasts less than one minute.

Why the test is performed

The test can help diagnose the cause of pain or swelling in joints. Removing the fluid can also help relieve joint pain.

This test may be used to diagnose:

  • Gout
  • Infection
  • Other inflammatory joint conditions
  • Joint injury
  • Osteoarthritis

What abnormal results mean

Abnormal joint fluid may look cloudy or abnormally thick.

Blood in the joint fluid may be a sign of injury inside the joint or a body-wide bleeding problem. An excess amount of normal synovial fluid can also be a sign of osteoarthritis.

What the risks are

  • Infection of the joint — unusual but more common with repeated aspirations
  • Bleeding into the joint space

Special considerations

Ice or cold packs may be applied to the joint for 24 to 36 hours after the test to reduce the swelling and joint pain. Depending on the exact problem, you can probably resume your normal activities after the procedure. Talk to your health care provider to determine what activity is most appropriate for you.

Abstract

Entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurs’ states of mind that direct attention, experience, and action toward a business concept, set the form and direction of organizations at their inception. Subsequent organizational outcomes such as survival, development (including written plans), growth, and change are based on these intentions. The study of entrepreneurial intentions provides a way of advancing entrepreneurship research beyond descriptive studies and helps to distinguish entrepreneurial activity from strategic management.

CASE Expressions #sql #case #when #and

CASE Expressions

In a simple CASE expression, Oracle Database searches for the first WHEN. THEN pair for which expr is equal to comparison_expr and returns return_expr. If none of the WHEN. THEN pairs meet this condition, and an ELSE clause exists, then Oracle returns else_expr. Otherwise, Oracle returns null. You cannot specify the literal NULL for every return_expr and the else_expr .

In a searched CASE expression, Oracle searches from left to right until it finds an occurrence of condition that is true, and then returns return_expr. If no condition is found to be true, and an ELSE clause exists, Oracle returns else_expr. Otherwise, Oracle returns null.

Oracle Database uses short-circuit evaluation. That is, for a simple CASE expression, the database evaluates each comparison_expr value only before comparing it to expr. rather than evaluating all comparison_expr values before comparing any of them with expr. Consequently, Oracle never evaluates a comparison_expr if a previous comparison_expr is equal to expr. For a searched CASE expression, the database evaluates each condition to determine whether it is true, and never evaluates a condition if the previous condition was true.

For a simple CASE expression, the expr and all comparison_expr values must either have the same datatype ( CHAR. VARCHAR2. NCHAR. or NVARCHAR2. NUMBER. BINARY_FLOAT. or BINARY_DOUBLE ) or must all have a numeric datatype. If all expressions have a numeric datatype, then Oracle determines the argument with the highest numeric precedence, implicitly converts the remaining arguments to that datatype, and returns that datatype.

For both simple and searched CASE expressions, all of the return_expr s must either have the same datatype ( CHAR. VARCHAR2. NCHAR. or NVARCHAR2. NUMBER. BINARY_FLOAT. or BINARY_DOUBLE ) or must all have a numeric datatype. If all return expressions have a numeric datatype, then Oracle determines the argument with the highest numeric precedence, implicitly converts the remaining arguments to that datatype, and returns that datatype.

The maximum number of arguments in a CASE expression is 255. All expressions count toward this limit, including the initial expression of a simple CASE expression and the optional ELSE expression. Each WHEN. THEN pair counts as two arguments. To avoid exceeding this limit, you can nest CASE expressions so that the return_expr itself is a CASE expression.

“Numeric Precedence” for information on numeric precedence

Simple CASE Example For each customer in the sample oe.customers table, the following statement lists the credit limit as “Low” if it equals $100, “High” if it equals $5000, and “Medium” if it equals anything else.

Tennessee Car Accident Lawyer #free #consultation #800.705.2121 #the #higgins #law #firm #fights


Tennessee Car Accident Lawyer

Generally, a hit and run in Tennessee happens when a driver is involved with either another car or a pedestrian and they leave the scene of the accident without saying who they are, giving any type of information about themselves, or rendering any type of aid or help to someone. They will normally cause an accident and leave the scene.

If you have been injured in a hit and run accident and are looking for legal representation, it is crucial to contact a Nashville, Tennessee car accident lawyer immediately. An experienced attorney will be able to build a case to help recover any damages you may be entitled to.

Fact Patterns of an Accident

In a hit and run accident, a lot of times the reason someone runs is that they are guilty of something. They may not have insurance, so they run because they know under the law of Tennessee, all mobile drivers should carry insurance. Or, they may be intoxicated, which an individual also knows under the laws of Tennessee a person cannot drive while a person is under the influence of alcohol or a drug.

Further, they may have just realized that they have caused a serious accident and they have the urge to flee. These are the types of fact patterns a Tennessee car accident lawyer has seen around hit and run accidents. An individual is leaving because they have a guilty conscience about either causing the accident, not being able to pay for it, or because they are driving under the influence.

Hit and Run vs. General Accident Cases

In hit and run cases, a Nashville, Tennessee car accident attorney is usually dealing with a client who is upset because somebody has hit their car and flees the scene, not knowing if they were injured. There are always a lot of personal feelings involved in such accidents, but from a legal standpoint, an attorney will have to first see if they can identify who that person was, if anyone recorded a license plate, if there a witness to the accident, et cetera.

If the individual cannot be identified, a Nashville, Tennessee car accident lawyer will try to prove an uninsured or under-insured motorist case, to show that the individual was an alleged victim of a hit and run, and therefore should be entitled an uninsured motorist claim.

In a hit-and-run accident case, a person is going to be able to recover economic damages, non-economic damages, and often punitive damages. Economic damages will be anything from the cost of repair to the individual s car, lost wages, and a person s pain and suffering. Pain and suffering is a non-economic damage.

The last type of damages a Nashville, Tennessee car accident lawyer will recover is punitive damages. This goes back to the hit-and-run driver leaving the client at the scene of the accident. A Tennessee car accident lawyer will ask the jury for damages to punish them for acting that way.

In Tennessee, a person can get punitive damages or exemplary damages from someone who behaves recklessly or criminally. It is a crime to cause an accident and leave the scene, so a person can ask a jury for civil damages or monetary damages to punish that person and to deter other similar actions.

Contacting an Attorney

An experienced Nashville, Tennessee car accident attorney will increase the value of the case where there is a settlement value or the value of the case at trial.

They will want to be able to put the accident claim together efficiently, so they will reconstruct how the accident occurred and why the other person is at fault, preserve evidence such as photographs of the scene and witness statements, advise the client through the process on matters like whether or not they should give a recorded statement, and then put the evidence together about the damages to present it to a jury.

Contact us online immediately, especially in a hit-and-run case. Witnesses leave, people’s memories fade, and a person should hire a Tennessee car accident lawyer quickly so that they can preserve all that evidence. Other steps that a person should complete after being injured in a hit-and-run accident would be to file a police report, get any witness info in the area, take pictures of their car, the scene, and any other vehicles that may have been involved in the accident.

Time Limits to Bring a Case: The Statute of Limitations #stages #of


#

Time Limits to Bring a Case: The ‘Statute of Limitations’

Statute of Limitations: Overview

Under a legal rule known as the statute of limitations , any lawsuit arising from an accident or injury must be filed within a certain time limit or the injured person’s legal claim will be barred and his or her right to sue will be lost forever. Every state has enacted its own statute of limitations, requiring any personal injury suit be filed in court within a set time after the incident or injury. The specific limit prescribed by each state ranges from one year (in Kentucky and Tennessee) to six years (in Maine and North Dakota).

Different Time Limits for Different Types of Claims

In some states, the type of personal injury claim may also affect the time limit. For example, certain defamation cases and claims involving minors (persons under age 18) may be granted longer time limits, while medical malpractice statutes of limitations may grant shorter time limits.

Typically, the statute of limitations in a lawsuit for injuries to a minor does not begin to run until he or she reaches the age of 18. For example, suppose Pat is injured in a car accident on his 17th birthday. In a state that has a two-year statute of limitations for personal injury lawsuits, Pat will have three years to file suit for injuries suffered in that accident.

The Discovery of Harm Rule

While a statute of limitations may declare that a personal injury lawsuit must be filed within a certain amount of time after an accident or injury, that time period usually does not begin to run until the moment when the person filing suit knew (or should reasonably have known) that they had suffered harm, and the nature of that harm.

An example of this discovery of harm rule is a medical malpractice claim in which a surgeon mistakenly left a temporary bandage in the abdomen of a patient, but the error was not discovered until years later, during another surgical procedure. In such a case, the patient had no reason to know of what happened, and this lack of knowledge could not be called unreasonable under the circumstances. Most likely, the statute of limitations would not begin to run until the day on which the first surgeon’s mistake was discovered by the patient, rather than from the day on which the first surgeon actually made the mistake.

Remember that the delay in discovery must be one that is reasonable under the circumstances. So, if the patient in the above example was experiencing abdominal pain after the first surgery but refused to seek medical treatment for a number of years, his or her lawsuit may very well be barred by the statute of limitations. Also, the discovery of harm rule will almost never arise in the most common types of injury claims — those after car accidents and slip and fall incidents. This is because such occurrences usually leave nothing to discover in terms of the source and nature of any harm suffered.

The Statute of Limitations in Your State

As mentioned above, every state has enacted its own statute of limitations, requiring any personal injury suit be filed in court within a set time after the incident or injury. The specific limit prescribed by each state is identified in the chart below, along with a link to the relevant state law.

(Note: State laws are frequently revised from year-to-year, so it is important to speak with an attorney to understand how your state’s current laws will apply in your case, especially in areas as critical as the statute of limitations. Remember also that special time-limit rules exist for injury claims against the government .)

Entrepreneurial intentions, entrepreneurs’ states of mind that direct attention, experience, and action toward a business concept, set the form and direction of organizations at their inception. Subsequent organizational outcomes such as survival, development (including written plans), growth, and change are based on these intentions. The study of entrepreneurial intentions provides a way of advancing entrepreneurship research beyond descriptive studies and helps to distinguish entrepreneurial activity from strategic management.

Case Study: The World Business Forum (WBF)

Being held for the first time in Australia in May 2014, the World Business Forum offered business leaders the opportunity to hear influential minds and legendary CEOs discuss global issues and trends.

The Star Event Centre was selected to be the venue for the inaugural Australian conference, hosting the largest collection of senior executives for an event of its type. The impressive lineup of speakers included the former Director of Marketing of Facebook, Randi Zuckerberg, The Hon. John Howard and Professor Michael Porter of the Harvard Business School.

The Event Centre was at full capacity, set theatre style for the 1,750 attendees plus all four suites on level 5 were in action for VIPs and corporate sponsors. Breakout spaces in the foyer of the Event Centre and on Sky Terrace featured eight sponsor stands of varying sizes and food stations showcasing Australia’s freshest cuisine like QLD Spanner Crab meat and avocado brioche.

Speakers, VIPs and sponsors enjoyed a three course lunch in The Attic in the Event Centre, and at Bistro 80, whilst other guests ventured throughout the property to dine and hold meetings at signature restaurants including Balla. BLACK by ezard and Sokyo and in The Star’s own food court.

Volunteers from a hotel management school were recruited to direct guests internally and externally to the property assisting with traffic flow.

Aware that time is an executive’s most precious commodity, The Star meticulously planned the two-day event for all guests, from the speedy registration process onsite and clear signage, to the prompt catering at all tea breaks and flawless VIP management; a seamless and memorable experience was had by all.

In addition, custom menus were implemented across the property ensuring World Business Forum attendees’ lunch breaks were well timed and afternoon sessions could get underway on schedule.

Impressing all guests, Sydney put on an absolutely stunning couple of days of weather which allowed guests to utilise Sky Terrace for all morning and afternoon tea breaks, avoiding the need for well-established wet weather plans.

The 2014 conference offered accommodation across The Star’s two hotels to delegates. Responding to attendees’ desire to stay on site, for the 2015 conference, The Star has partnered with their client offering a discount code for accommodation at both The Darling and Astral Towers and Residences.

The 2014 World Business Forum was a major success, and has chosen to hold the 2015 conference at the same venue The Star for the second consecutive year, 27 – 28 May 2015.

The 2015 conference was another outstanding event that featured a stellar line up of speakers including Lynda Gratton, Professor at the London Business School, Steve Wozniak, the pioneer who co-founded Apple and Ben Bernanke, two-term Chairman of the Federal Reserve System.

The launch of the World Business Forum Sydney last year was a huge success with 2173 senior-level executives in attendance Australia s largest business management event.

The Star were instrumental in the planning and delivery of the Forum to ensure we exceeded expectations for both executives and sponsors. This was definitely achieved, as 100% of all executives surveyed mentioned that they would return again.

We look forward to working with the team at The Star again on the World Business Forum Sydney 2015 which will be held on 27th 28th May.

The “moving wall” represents the time period between the last issue available in JSTOR and the most recently published issue of a journal. Moving walls are generally represented in years. In rare instances, a publisher has elected to have a “zero” moving wall, so their current issues are available in JSTOR shortly after publication.
Note: In calculating the moving wall, the current year is not counted.
For example, if the current year is 2008 and a journal has a 5 year moving wall, articles from the year 2002 are available.

Terms Related to the Moving WallFixed walls: Journals with no new volumes being added to the archive. Absorbed: Journals that are combined with another title. Complete: Journals that are no longer published or that have been combined with another title.
