Intriguing Plot Twists
In previous games, the war between the Allies and Soviets was coming to a close with the Allies nearing victory. In desperation, the Soviets created a time-travel device that they’ve used to assassinate Albert Einstein before he is able to develop the weapon technology the Allies later use to defeat the Soviets. Upon returning, they notice a new world, and there is a world war taking place between three groups for control of the world.

Play As Three Different Factions for Varied game play
In Red Alert 3, you have the choice to play as the Allies, the Soviets, or the Empire of the Rising Sun. Each faction has its own story-line and distinct units with advantages and disadvantages that you have to master in order to win. The new faction to the series is the Empire of the Rising Sun, derived from Imperial Japan, with an all-new cast of units and characters.

The three factions have many differences, exemplified by their wildly different types of units. The Soviets, for example, have armored attack bears, Allies have the Dolphin ship which can high jump and use a sonic attack, and the Empire of the Rising Sun features such quirky units as a giant transforming mecha and ninjas. As they’ve done with the series, EA injects humor into the game when possible, keeping a smile on your face as you wage war.

Fight on Land, in the Air, and on Sea
Red Alert 3 has land units, air units, and naval units, all integral parts of the game. Unlike most strategy games that don’t bother with naval warfare, Red Alert 3 makes controlling the seas an essential part of the game. Controlling resources in the seas and mounting attacks from all directions are strategies that must be employed to achieve victory.

Cooperative Mode Lets You Team Up with Your Friends
Red Alert 3 has a fully co-operative campaign mode where you and a friend can play together to achieve victory. This means that you have to develop a strategy together, as well as execute it in synch in order to win. If your friends aren’t online, you can also choose one of several AI commanders as your teammate.

Play Against Your Friends in Multiplayer
With the different units and play mechanics of each faction, you and your friends will have a great time playing against each other, perfecting different strategies to best suit the units you have and the maps you play on. And thanks to the balanced game play, no one will have an unfair advantage.

For previous fans of Command and Conquer, Red Alert 3 will provide the same light-hearted game play, but with more units, more strategies, and more fun. Newcomers to the game will soon see what all the fuss and laughter is about.

Does It Matter If You Get Laid Off From A Job?

Question by anonymous: Does It Matter If You Get Laid Off From A Job?
I Used To Be A Cashier At JC Penney. But, I Got Laid Off. I’m Not Sure Why, Though. But, I’ve Put JC Penney As A Refrence On Job Applications. But, I Never Get Called.

Besides The Economic Crisis, Are They Not Calling Me For An Interview, Because I’ve Been Laid Off? Does It Matter? Does That Refrence Still Help Me? Or What It Be Better Not To Put It As A Refrence.

By The Way I Worked About A Month Or Less.

Best answer:

Answer by PiggiePants
Being laid off means you lost your job through no fault of your own, due to workforce reduction, company reorganization or closure, etc. It does not reflect badly on your resume as would a termination or firing. The job market is very tight right now, so it could take a while to land a new job. Just keep applying. As long as you were not fired for cause, and are sure you will get a good reference from Penneys, you should keep the job on your applications since it shows you have some experience working.

How to make an individual employment contract?

Question by bhe: How to make an individual employment contract?

Best answer:

Answer by darealqueen
Contract of Employment – Contents
The following provides a brief outline of what is included within a CompactLaw Contract of Employment.

Names of the Parties
The employer’s organisation details and the employee’s full name and address.

Employment Contract Start Date
This is important as it also includes a brief statement to say that employment with a previous employer does not count towards the various rights that are gained by employees after one and two years of service. In other words the employee starts again from zero with the new employer. (Exceptions to this are where an employer has taken over an organisation with existing employees – their employment rights are maintained.)

Employee’s Job Title and Description
This usually follows the job title and description specified in any recruitment advertisement and subsequent offer letter. To suit the employer it also allows for flexibility in the employee’s role.

Place of Work
The employment contract allows the employer to specify the location where the employee will work. However, it also allows for the employer to specify any other location in the future. This gives the employer much greater flexibility.

Hours of Work
The employee’s hours are specified within the employment contract, however the employee also agrees to work additional hours if the employer reasonably requests it. However, the hours cannot exceed the 48-hour per week as specified by the Working Time Regulations, (unless the employee has signed a voluntary opt-out from the Regulations).

Probationary Period
The employer can specify a trial period for the employee with the option of a short notice period at the end of the trial, if the employee does not fulfil expectations. The employer can also extend the trial period.

This details the employee’s gross salary before tax, national insurance and any deductions. It also specifies when payment is made.

The employer can state when the employee will receive their first work assessment and the timing of all subsequent regular assessments, for example every 12 months.

This clause details all the circumstances in which the employer can make deductions from the employee’s salary.

The employer can agree with the employee, which work-related expenses the employer will cover and when the employee will be reimbursed. However to prevent errors and possible fraud the clause makes it clear that proof of payment is required.

This clause specifies when the holiday year will run from. This is important as the employer may wish to prevent employees taking busy work periods off, for example Christmas time for hospitality, retail or entertainment industries. This clause also allows the employer to specify the number of days per year that an employee can take, (subject to a statutory minimum of 20 days) and whether bank and public holidays are included or excluded from this. The clause also includes further details regarding rolling-over holidays into the next year, restrictions on holidays where the employee has already given notice and on termination the pro rata payment in lieu of any unused holiday entitlement.

Sickness & Disability
Absence through sickness is a major cost burden on employers. This clause states by what time the employee must inform the employer that they will be unable to attend work, (it does allow for a third party to contact the employer on the employee’s behalf). The clause also states when a doctor’s certificate is required and whether the employee will receive statutory or contractual sick pay.

This clause within the employment contract allows the employer to state whether the employee will be included within the employer’s company pension scheme, a stakeholder pension scheme or whether the employment comes without a pension provision.

The notice period to be given by either the employer or the employee. However, this clause also provides a detailed list of actions that constitute gross misconduct allowing the employer to dismiss without giving notice.

Restrictive Covenants
This is only included within the CompactLaw Long Employment Contracts. It protects all confidential and commercial information belonging to the employer. Prevents an employee from setting up a competing business whilst still employed. Also prevents an employee from competing for a set period of time and within a defined geographical area once they have left the employer. Other restrictions include attempts to encourage other employees to leave and work in a competing business. Finally, the clause states that any breaches will entitle the employer to seek legal redress, including damages for any loss.

Grievance and Disciplinary Procedure
This refers to the detailed separate Grievance and Disciplinary Policy that comes free with each CompactLaw Employment Contract.

States the employee’s contractual retirement age and also refers to a Retirement Policy; which every organisation should have in place. This clause and the retirement policy ensure compliance with the The Employment Equality (Age) Regulations 2006 – age discrimination legislation.

This standard paragraph states that each paragraph, sub-paragraph or clause is independent of each other, so if one is invalid or does not apply to the employee the rest of the contract remains valid.

Prior Agreements
Another standard paragraph, stating that the employment contract contains all the terms agreed between the employer and the employee and that no previous agreement (written or verbal) counts.

Confirms the contract of employment comes under the jurisdiction of the English courts; however, it can also be changed to specify the Scotland, (if required).

Particulars of Employment
Under Section 1 of the Employment Rights Act 1996 all employee contracts must set out the main terms of the contract in a separate schedule. This is so that the employee (and the employer) can easily refer to this schedule when they wish to remind themselves of the main terms.

how to get elance project?

Question by : how to get elance project?
I am a web developer with decent design skills. I am trying to establish myself as a freelance website developer via bidding sites, but thus far I have been disappointed greatly :( .. any clue how to get web design jobs on elance or odesk?

Best answer:

Answer by ?
I have been operating in Elance since 2007; and so far I’ve got considerable success in Web Design and Development projects. Start with creating a Credible Elance Profile.

As a new provider you do not have anything to show in the ‘Snapshot’ or ‘Job History’ sections in your profile [which are very crucial as you get going in Elance]. Nevertheless, you’ve got to create credibility from whatever options you are given here. I recommend you focus on these sections:

i. Skills:
You can specify your skill sets in the Elance profile choosing from the wide variety of skill-lists. You can self-rate the skills or can opt-in to take tests. To build credibility, it’s essential that you take the tests. Who cares how much you rate yourself anyway?

A good thing about the tests is that they can be taken for free. So, if you are a WordPress expert, do take WordPress tests and get verified scores. The ‘verified’ mark looks really cool in the profile! Most importantly, a decent verified score in the test reduces doubt from prospective buyer’s mind about your claimed level of expertise.

ii. Portfolio:
Employers do not always look into your portfolio section, rather they mostly look into whatever you mentioned in your proposal; nevertheless you can’t take any chance with it. Take time to upload screenshots of your best works in Elance Portfolio section. However, screenshots are not always adequate to convince the buyer; so you need to add URL of your live samples and specify the detail [i.e. what the highlighted site is all about, what is special about it].

iii. Write-ups:
There are two major write-up sections in Elance: ‘Overview’ and ‘Service Description’. I just suggest you put something interesting to read there instead of general sentences such as “XYZ Ltd is a leading firm in USA with 30 employees that has been creating state-of-the-art websites… bla bla…“. For God’s sake, do not bore people! In my understanding, these write-ups are the mostly ignored by buyers. Yet you need to put something decent and worth reading there.
