Livesey explains that Gunn had already found the treasure and taken it to his cave. The expedition members load much of the treasure onto the ship and sail away. At their first port in Spanish Americawhere they will sign on more crew, Silver steals a bag of money and escapes. The rest sail back to Bristol and divide up the treasure.
Jim says there is more left on the island, but he for one will not undertake another voyage to recover it. Stevenson had just returned from his first stay in America, with memories of poverty, illness, and adventure including his recent marriageand a warm reconciliation between his parents had been established. Stevenson himself said in designing the idea of the story that, "it was to be a story for boys; no need of psychology or fine writing; and I had a boy at hand to be a touchstone.
Women were excluded and then I had an idea for Long John Silver from which I promised myself funds of entertainment; to take an admired friend of mine, to deprive him of all his finer qualities and higher graces of temperament, and to leave him with nothing but his strength, his courage, his quickness, and his magnificent geniality, and to try Simon V & Telmo A.
/ Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) express these in terms of the culture of a raw tarpaulin". Completing 15 chapters in as many days, Stevenson was interrupted by illness and, after leaving Scotland, continued working on the first draft outside London.
While there, his father provided additional impetus, as the two discussed points of the tale, and Stevenson's father was the one who suggested the scene of Jim in the apple barrel and the name of Walrus for Captain Flint's ship. Two general types of sea novels were popular during the 19th century: the navy yarn, which places a capable officer in adventurous situations amid realistic settings and historical events; and the desert island romance, which features shipwrecked or marooned characters confronted by treasure-seeking pirates or angry natives.
Aroundthe latter genre became one of the most popular fictional styles in Great Britain, perhaps because of the philosophical interest in Rousseau and Chateaubriand 's " noble savage ". Treasure Island was a climax of this development. The growth of the desert island genre can be traced back to when Daniel Defoe 's legendary Robinson Crusoe was published. A century later, novels such as S. However, other authors, in the mid 19th-century, continued this work, including James Fenimore Cooper 's The Pilot During the same period, Anthony M.
Lopez wrote, Zapatron in and the intriguing tale of buried treasure, The Gold-Scar All of these works influenced Stevenson's end product. However, specifically, Stevenson consciously borrowed material from previous authors. In a July letter to Anthony M.
Stevenson also admits that he took the idea of Captain Flint's pointing skeleton from Poe's The Gold-Bug and he constructed Billy Bones ' history from the pages of Washington Irvingone of his favorite writers. One month after he conceived of The Sea Cookchapters began to appear in the pages of Young Folks magazine. Eventually, the entire novel ran in 17 weekly instalments from October 1,through January 28, Later the book was republished as the novel Treasure Island and the book proved to be Stevenson's first financial and critical success.
William Gladstone the zealous Liberal politician who served four terms as British prime minister between andwas one of the book's biggest fans. Among other minor characters whose names are not revealed are the four pirates who were killed in an attack on the stockade along with Job Anderson; the pirate killed by the honest men minus Jim Hawkins before the attack on the stockade; the pirate shot by Squire Trelawney when aiming at Israel Hands, who later died of his injuries; and the pirate marooned on the island along with Tom Morgan and Dick.
Stevenson deliberately leaves the exact date of the novel obscure, Hawkins writing that he takes up his pen "in the year of grace 17—.
Other dates mentioned includethe date Dr. Livesey served as a soldier at Fontenoy and also a date appearing in Billy Bones' log. The perpetrators of this crime also buried the considerable treasure they had stolen but most of it was later recovered. They were all executed in Dublin in In his research, Kelly proved that Stevenson was a neighbour of the named victim in Edinburgh, and so was intimately aware of what was a scandal at the time, from an early age.
Stevenson and his family were even members of the church congregation set up by the victims father. The Pirate's House in Savannah, Georgia is where Captain Flint is claimed to have spent his last days,  Fire - Dr Yogami - The Hottest Thing Since Rock N Roll his ghost is claimed to haunt the property.

However, through Orders dated October 31,and November 22,the Court dismissed all but five of plaintiff's claims for failure to timely exhaust her administrative remedies. Opp'n at 2, reviewed plaintiff's Klockan Ett Och Tio 27aug I En Elektribe - Various - Nordic Combination along with others, ranked all the candidates and forwarded its list of best qualified candidates to Deputy Assistant Secretary Ronald Cowles, a white male, whose role it was to recommend a candidate for appointment.
See Pl. Opp'n, Ex. Plaintiff was not ranked among the "best qualified" for this position, and her name was not forwarded to the selecting official. Cowles ultimately selected Nilda Salas, a Hispanic female born on November 6,for the position. See id. Because Ms. Salas was already a GS and was laterally reassigned to this vacancy from elsewhere in VA she had previously worked in the Office of Human Resources Management inwhen she assisted with the restructuring of the Officeshe was not rated or ranked by the rating panel.
If they are qualified, they can be referred without rating and ranking. Plaintiff was interviewed for this position, but the vacancy was cancelled. The position was re-posted in Januaryat which time plaintiff was again interviewed, this time with selecting official Edward McGarrity. Opp'n at 3. In an April 20, memo, plaintiff was informed that she had not been selected for the position, and that Mr.
McGarrity had offered the job to Rita McCullough, a white female born on January 5,who at the time was working in the same position at the Board of Veterans Appeals. See Def. This was the Watusi - NON, Boyd Rice - Back To Mono position that had been previously posted as HRM and filled by Ms.
Salas, who departed the job after a year. For this vacancy, Mr. Cowles was initially again responsible for supervision of the hiring process, but Constantine Verenes, Director of the Office of Administration at the VA, eventually assumed the role of recommending official. The rating panel, consisting of Mr. Curley, James Lee and Barbara Hulick, did not rank plaintiff among the best qualified, and her name was not among those forwarded to Mr.
Verenes for selection. Those ranked best qualified were interviewed by Mr. Oliver-Simon Decl. Opp'n at 2, Ultimately, Theresa Jenkins, a white female born on January 20,who worked in another area of the VA, was offered the position in October When she declined the job, Mr. Verenes offered it to Ms. Marshall, who was born on August 3, Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001)through a lateral reassignment.
Opp'n at 2. Plaintiff's fourth non-selection claim arises from her application for another Supervisory Personnel Management Specialist position, announced in HRM in September The rating panel for this position consisted of Mr. Lee and Carol Mellen, with Mr.
Plaintiff's application was reviewed by the rating panel members, but her scores were not sufficient to place her on the best qualified list, so her name was not forwarded to the recommending or selecting officials. On November 29,Ms. Gibson selected Angel Wolfry, a white female born on August 12,to fill the position.
Plaintiff's final non-selection claim is based on her application for an Executive Assistant position, which was announced in November Based on the panel's ratings, a list of twelve "best qualified" applicants was forwarded to Mr.
Schultz, the selecting official. Schultz believed the list was too long, so he reconvened Mr. Sessa, Mr. Rodriguez and Ms. Felder as a screening panel to shorten the list by conducting interviews of the applicants. Angela Porter, an African-American female born on July 27,and already serving as an Executive Assistant elsewhere in the VA, was chosen for the position.
Besides these non-selections, during the period from through filing of this action on October 19,plaintiff has complained to her superiors several times claiming that she was Chase Devereaux - PG13 unfairly overlooked for promotion, and alleging discrimination and retaliation by the VA. See Oliver-Simon Decl. Plaintiff initially complained to managers, including Ms. Felder, Mr.
Cowles and others, in andexpressing displeasure with her minimal role in the reorganization of OHRM and claiming that there was insufficient minority representation among the leadership of the reorganization. The last meeting where these concerns were raised was between plaintiff and Eugene Brickhouse, one of her superiors, on September 11, Besides complaints about the reorganization process, plaintiff also contacted an EEO counselor on April 29,following several non-selections, and filed an administrative complaint on June 17, Plaintiff also contacted the EEO office on November 30,regarding non-selections subsequent to her initial complaint, and a second or amended complaint was filed on January 12, Summary judgment is appropriate when the pleadings and the evidence demonstrate that "there is no genuine issue as to any material fact and that the moving party is entitled to judgment as a matter of law.
The party seeking summary judgment bears the initial responsibility of demonstrating the absence of a genuine dispute of material fact. See Celotex Corp. Catrett, U. In determining whether there exists a genuine issue of material fact sufficient to preclude summary judgment, the court must regard the non-movant's statements as true and accept all evidence and make all inferences in the non-movant's favor.
See Anderson v. Liberty Lobby, Inc. A non-moving party, however, must establish more than the "mere existence of a scintilla of evidence" in support of its position. By pointing to the absence of evidence proffered by the Simon V & Telmo A.
/ Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) party, a moving party may succeed on summary judgment. Celotex, U. Summary judgment is appropriate if the non-movant fails to offer "evidence on which the jury could reasonably find for the [non-movant]. Reno, F. Toasted Mushroom - Various - Tripout : Psychotropic Creations (An Exploration Into Goa) (Volume One), U.
Giant Food, Inc. Under this framework, a plaintiff has the burden of establishing a prima facie case of discrimination or retaliation by a preponderance of the evidence. McDonnell The Dave Shaw Ten* - Themes Corp. Dep't of Cmty. Affairs v. Burdine, U. To establish a prima facie case of discrimination, a plaintiff must demonstrate that 1 he is a member of a protected class; 2 he suffered an adverse employment action; and 3 the unfavorable action gives rise to an inference of discrimination.
Stella v. Mineta, F. Brody, F. The D. Circuit has refined this prima facie test for discrimination in non-promotion and failure to hire cases, such that plaintiff must establish: 1 that she belongs to a protected group; 2 that she applied Simon V & Telmo A.
/ Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) was qualified for a job for which the employer was seeking applicants i. Morgan v. To make out a prima facie claim of retaliation, a plaintiff must establish that 1 she engaged Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) a statutorily protected activity; 2 the employer took an adverse personnel action; and 3 a causal connection existed between the two. Baldrige, F. Weinberger, F. If the plaintiff establishes a prima facie case, the burden then shifts to the employer to articulate a legitimate, nondiscriminatory or nonretaliatory reason for its actions.
McDonnell Douglas, U. The employer's burden, however, is merely one Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) production. The employer "need not persuade the court that it was actually motivated by the proffered reasons.
It is sufficient if the defendant's evidence raises a genuine issue of fact as to whether it discriminated against the plaintiff. If the employer Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) articulates a nondiscriminatory or nonretaliatory basis for its actions, the burden shifts back to the plaintiff to show that the employer's stated reason was a pretext for discrimination or retaliation. Reeves v. Sanderson Plumbing Prods. The plaintiff may attempt to establish that she was the victim of intentional discrimination "by showing that the employer's proffered explanation is unworthy of credence.
But "[p]roof that the defendant's explanation is unworthy of credence is simply one form of circumstantial evidence that is probative of intentional discrimination. As the D.
Circuit has explained:. Assuming then that the employer has met its burden of producing a nondiscriminatory reason for its actions, the focus of proceedings at trial and at summary judgment will be on Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) the jury could infer discrimination from the combination of 1 the plaintiff's prima facie case; 2 any evidence the plaintiff presents to attack the employer's proffered explanation for its actions; and 3 any further evidence of discrimination that may be available to the plaintiff such as independent evidence of discriminatory statements or attitudes on the part of the employer or any contrary evidence that may be available to the employer such as evidence of a strong track record in equal opportunity employment.
Aka v. Washington Hosp. District of Columbia, F. Once the defendant has proffered a legitimate non-discriminatory reason for its action, the question becomes whether that proffered reason is a pretext for discrimination, and at this point the McDonnell Douglas shifting burdens framework disappears. The sole remaining issue becomes discrimination vel non, and "to survive summary judgment the plaintiff must show that a reasonable jury could conclude from all of the evidence that the adverse employment decision was made for a discriminatory reason.
Snow, F. Examination of that issue in this setting therefore requires consideration of all the relevant circumstances in evidence, including the strength of the prima facie case, any direct evidence of discrimination, any circumstantial evidence that defendant's proffered explanation is false which may be enough with the prima facie case to infer unlawful discriminationand any properly-considered evidence supporting the employer's case.
Reeves, U. Omni Shoreham Hotel, F. As a African-American female over forty years of age at the time of her non-selectionplaintiff belongs to three protected groups. Cutting further in plaintiff's favor in establishing a prima facie case of discrimination is the fact that for each of these four positions, the selectee was outside of plaintiff's protected class for at least one basis of her discrimination claim sex, Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001)or age.

I of each selectee. For plaintiff's claim of non-selection for vacancy OGC, however she fails Spill - Various - Thee Sheffield Radiophonic Workshop establish a prima facie discrimination case. Plaintiff does not establish a critical element of "the McDonnell Douglas test by showing that [she has] been subjected to some sort of adverse personnel or employment action.
As in Brody, here it is undisputed that if plaintiff had been selected for the OGC position, "it would have been a lateral transfer" from plaintiff's current GS position to another GS position with equal GS rank, pay and benefits.
Plaintiff has offered no evidence that she suffered an objectively tangible harm as a result of being denied the lateral transfer at issue in this claim. She contends that she "would have liked to have worked" in the General Counsel's Office where this position wasand that the OGC position would have been "very appropriate for one with [her] background.
However, "[m]ere idiosyncrasies of personal preference are not sufficient to state an injury. Plaintiff failed to respond to defendant's motion for summary judgment on this claim, effectively conceding it. Plaintiff herself states that her "claim" based on OGC is not a claim for which she seeks damages; rather, it simply "provides crucial background evidence concerning her discrimination and retaliation claims.
Opp'n at 3 n. In addition to plaintiff's apparent concession on this claim, she has failed to establish a prima facie case for discrimination, and thus summary judgment on this claim will be entered for defendant. Because Plaintiff has established a prima facie case on four claims, the burden shifts to defendant to articulate a legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for plaintiff's non-selections. MI 8; see also Baggett v. Electricians LocalSo. The trial court dismissed both counts with prejudice, ruling primarily that the counts failed to set forth cognizable causes of action since they essentially alleged claims of educational malpractice, a cause of action not recognized by the Florida courts.
As such, the dismissal of these two counts should have been with leave to amend. On remand, we direct the court's attention to the fact that a complaint for fraud must specifically allege sufficient ultimate facts on each element of the claim. Held v. Trafford Realty Co. The first fraud element, false representations of fact, can only be satisfied when the pleading identifies specific facts and states how they were false. Batlemento v. Dove Fountain, Inc.
The precise allegations here are that the defendants falsely stated that they intended to implement a curriculum of "proven best practices" that would include "technology" and "whatever it takes" in a school that had not yet commenced operation.
Despite the inclusion of over paragraphs in the fraud count, the complaint does not describe with specificity what "best practices" means, the type of technology promised, or what was meant by "whatever it takes. See Allen v. United Zinc Co. Jones, So. Furthermore, Roll Deep - Celebrate within the complaint do the Simons state how these representations were false.
The complaint simply alleges the conclusory Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) that the representations were false, a legally insufficient allegation under the strict pleading requirements for a claim predicated on fraud. See Batlemento, So. The lack of specificity is particularly troublesome here where nine separate defendants are lumped together in each count in a complaint that often fails to particularize which of the nine defendants made which statements.
Furthermore, actual damages is an element of an action for fraud. National Equipment Rental, Ltd. As such, this element must be pled using specific, ultimate facts.
Held, So. Moreover, fraud Simon V & Telmo A. / Simon V - Treasure Island / Looking Back (2001) form the basis for recovery of damages unless the damages directly arise from the fraud and are causally connected to the fraud. Rolls v. Richards, Fla. The Simons' complaint fails to assert how bloody moron - Fulgeance - homecooking alleged damages were causally related to the alleged fraud.
The Simons have not raised any challenge to the trial court's dismissal to Count V. Therefore, that ruling is affirmed. As for appellees Harvard, Auburn, and the University of Minnesota, the trial court granted their motions to dismiss on the basis of lack of personal jurisdiction and, since the Simons have not raised any challenge to that ruling in this appeal, the trial court's dismissal of counts III and IV is affirmed with regard to those three defendants.
Furthermore, since there is no dismissal order in the record regarding appellee Valencia Community College, we issue no ruling regarding Valencia Community College. It is, therefore, a paramount duty of the state to make adequate provision for the education of all children residing within its borders. Adequate provision shall be made by law for a uniform, efficient, safe, secure, and high quality system of free public schools that allows students to obtain a high quality education and for the establishment, maintenance, and operation of institutions of higher learning and other public education programs that the needs of the people may require.
Such supplemental jurisdiction shall include claims that involve the joinder or intervention of additional parties. Most cases involving educational malpractice deal with plaintiffs who allege that their school failed to teach them reading, or failed Park Bench - Aurora Carter - Time A Long Time Ago properly diagnose a learning disability.
