The Gervais Principle, Or The Office According to “The Office” My neighbor introduced me to The Office back in 2005. Since then, I’ve watched every episode of both the British and American versions. I’ve watched the show obsessively because I’ve been unable to figure out what makes it so devastatingly effective, and elevates it so far above the likes of Dilbert and Office Space. Until now, that is. Now, after four years, I’ve finally figured the show out. The Office is not a random series of cynical gags aimed at momentarily alleviating the existential despair of low-level grunts.

It is a fully realized theory of management that falsifies 83.8% of the business section of the bookstore. The theory begins with Hugh MacLeod’s well-known cartoon, Company Hierarchy (below), and its cornerstone is something I will call The Gervais Principle, which supersedes both the Peter Principle and its successor, The Dilbert Principle. From The Whyte School to The Gervais Principle Back then, Whyte was extremely pessimistic. Which brings us to our main idea. Charles W. Cushman Photograph Collection >> Browse >> Location.

Department of Records - Photo Gallery. The New York City Department of Records and Information Services announced the addition of 30,000 photographs to its on-line gallery. Some of the more unusual images from this series depict political groups monitored by the New York City Police Department's "Alien Squad. " These photos range from Communist Party rallies in Madison Square Garden to the Nazi summer retreat in Yaphank, Long Island run by the German American Bund. See all the Alien Squad photos. DOR staff and researchers from New York University's Tamiment Library are collaborating to identify people in the photos.

With this new group of photos, the online gallery now totals more than 900,000--the largest collection of historical images of New York City in the world.

So I'm still fairly new to Android (Incredible's my first Android devide), and was skeptical about install the RUU (thanks for the guide, true!). But when I read that others who had used the OTA or sometimes had to do a factory reset as well, I figured using RUU wouldn't hurt. In fact I believe (IMO, which has no technical backing) that RUU may be better than OTA/, because like upgrading an OS on a computer, a fresh install is better that upgrading over a previous OS. Anyway enough of that... My biggest hang-up was backing-up my apps, contacts & text messages (realizing that settings couldn't be saved, no matter what I tried). Since I had never rooted/done anything with my Incredible prior to this, I was also worried about losing apps that I paid for.

Now while the following may seem basic to most of you, I know I would have loved to have had this information prior to my RUU update, just to put my mind at ease. Later!

Tax Calculators for Previous Tax Years. PJ Media. Charles Murray’s book ‘Coming Apart’ explains how we split into two separate American cultures after 1960, and how we can join together again. What if a right-wing intellectual looked at Occupy Wall Street and agreed with much of its two-Americas worldview?

Like OWS, American Enterprise Institute scholar Charles Murray’s book, “Coming Apart: The State of White America, 1960-2010,” considers what the country feels like compared to pre-’80s America and asks: What happened? In 1960, Murray argues, rich and poor lived more or less the same lives, in the same communities, nestled within the same principles and institutions. We watched the same TV shows, drank the same beer, attended the same churches and schools. At vacation time, we all headed for the nearest patch of beach in our Detroit-made cars. There was no upper class, just a few rich people. Smoking, Popeye’s Fried Chicken and NASCAR are as unknown to one side of the divide as NPR, The Economist and psychotherapy are to the other.

A quarter-century later, we’re the United States of Insulation. In 1963, only 8% of American families earned the equivalent of $100,000 today.
