the north face mens jackets Appellate Judge Garcia to step down

New Mexico Court of Appeals Judge Timothy L. Garcia will retire in February after nearly a decade on the court, according to a statement issued by The University of New Mexico School of Law, making him the second judge to announce his retirement from the appellate court this week and the fifth to depart the 10 member bench since the last election cycle.

His departure means Gov. Susana Martinez will have replaced half the court’s judges with her appointees by the time she leaves office. It also means that five seats on the appellate court will be up for grabs in next year’s elections.

Four challengers all Democrats, all women have announced they will seek election to Court of Appeals positions currently held by Martinez appointed judges all men, all Republican.

If all the female challengers were successful, seven of the 10 seats on the appellate bench would be held by women, which would make it the first time in state history there has been a female majority on the court, said Administrative Office of the Courts spokesman Barry Massey.

If Garcia’s seat also went to a female candidate, the court would have an 80 percent female majority.

“All these women running for office [locally and nationally] really inspired and compelled me [to run],” said Albuquerque lawyer Megan Duffy, 38, who announced earlier this week that she will seek the seat being vacated by Judge Jonathan Sutin, who announced his retirement last week.

Duffy, who has never held or sought public office before and has spent the bulk of her career handling civil cases in private practice, said she is drawn to the bench out of a “great respect for our courts and judges” and admiration for the way that laws order society.

Garcia, a former District Court judge in Santa Fe, was appointed to the appellate court in 2008 by then Gov. Bill Richardson, elected to the post in 2010 and retained by voters in 2016.

The Judicial Nominating Commission will convene in Santa Fe in early 2018 to consider applicants for the vacancy being created by Garcia’s retirement. After interviewing the applicants, the commission will send the names of nominees to Martinez, who will have 30 days to appoint one of them or ask for more names.

The appointed judge will have to win election to the post in the next general election to stay on the bench.

The New Mexico Court of Appeals reviews appeals of all lower court cases, except criminal cases that involve sentences of life imprisonment. The court considers about 9,000 cases a year. The judges are paid about $119,000 a year and, once elected, must stand for retention by voters every eight years.

the north face boys jackets Appeals Court settles Oxford comma debate

Maine’s overtime law excludes people who work with certain food products. It states the law does not apply to employees who are involved in “The canning, processing, preserving, freezing, drying, marketing, storing, packing for shipment or distribution of: (1) Agriculture produce; (2) meat and fish products; and (3) perishable foods.

The drivers lost an earlier ruling in the case because a lower court said the law was unambigious in its intention that the law applied to both packers and distributors.

“Each party recognizes that, by its bare terms, Exemption F raises questions as to its scope, largely due to the fact that no comma precedes the words ‘or distribution,'” the court wrote in its ruling.

While the dairy pointed out that Maine’s Legislative Drafting Manual specifically says not to use the Oxford comma, the court ruled against the dairy and sent the case back to a lower court for additional proceedings.

the north face jeppeson jacket appeals court gives victory to consumer finance agency

the north face resolve jacket appeals court gives victory to consumer finance agency

WASHINGTON A federal appeals court has handed a victory to the government’s beleaguered consumer finance watchdog agency, ruling that its director’s power isn’t excessive and the president shouldn’t have freer rein to fire that person.

The decision came Wednesday in the politically charged case involving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, a keen target of conservative Republicans. Court of Appeals, with three judges dissenting, overturned a 2016 ruling by a smaller panel that would have made it easier for President Donald Trump to fire then CFPB director Richard Cordray, an appointee of President Barack Obama.

The decision comes as the watchdog agency is engulfed in turmoil and confusion. Cordray stepped down in November before his five year term ended, and Trump named White House budget director Mick Mulvaney as acting CFPB director. Mulvaney, taking on the second role, has moved to soften agency regulations on payday loans and slash its funding.

At the same time, Leandra English, the agency’s deputy director under Cordray and named by him as his replacement, has claimed that she not Mulvaney is the rightful acting director. That dispute also has wound up in federal court. A judge ruled in early January in favor of Trump and the White House, denying English an injunction to keep Mulvaney out of the job.

The next stop for the legal tussle over the director’s power and the Constitution could be the Supreme Court. In an unusual turn, the Trump Justice Department opposed the agency within its own government in the case and could be expected to appeal the latest decision.

Consumer groups and Democratic lawmakers exulted in the ruling Wednesday. Meanwhile, Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R Texas, who heads the House Financial Services Committee and is the agency’s fiercest critic, said he was “deeply disappointed.”

At the same time, Hensarling said, “I take great solace in the fact that Mick Mulvaney can use his unchecked, unilateral powers to continue the agency’s transformation.”

In the case, CFPB opponents challenged a provision of the 2010 Dodd Frank financial overhaul legislation allowing the CFPB director to be removed only “for cause” such as neglect of duty and not over political differences. They asserted that conflicts with the Constitution, which enables the president to remove officials for any reason.

In the ruling, the appeals panel found that the provision doesn’t violate the Constitution and doesn’t prevent the president from performing his constitutional duty to supervise the executive branch. Having a single person in charge of the CFPB is different from the pattern atop many other federal regulatory agencies of a multi member commission, the ruling said, “but we cannot downplay the fact that Congress also required extensive coordination, expert consultation and oversight of the director. If much was given to the director, then much was also required.”

Cordray, who gave up the position to run as a Democrat for governor in Ohio, was the first and only director of the consumer agency. The CFPB has been swept up in partisan politics since its creation by the Dodd Frank law that tightened supervision of Wall Street and the financial industry following the crisis and the Great Recession. Wall Street interests, the banking and consumer finance industries and Republicans in Congress have fiercely opposed and criticized the agency, accusing it of overreaching in its regulation.

Democrats and consumer groups defending the CFPB point to its record. The agency, with about 1,600 employees, has taken legal action against banks, mortgage companies, credit card issuers, payday lenders, debt collectors and others. The CFPB has said that over five years it has recovered $11.7 billion that it returned to more than 27 million harmed consumers. It has handled over a million complaints from consumers.

the north face mens fleece apparel store in Annapolis

the north face canada apparel store in Annapolis

One of the world’s largest sail makers has picked Annapolis for its first retail store in the United States.

North Sails opened the small store on Dock Street Saturday, integrating its newly merged clothing brand with its sail making reputation. The location makes two for the company in Annapolis, joining a Sales and Sail Care loft in Eastport.

The sail making business was started by Lowell North in a 15 by 40 foot space in San Diego in 1957. The apparel brand has been an overseas line since its start in the 1990s.

“I think it’s probably 20 years later than it should’ve been.”

At the time of the European section’s purchase by Oakley Capital, North Sails global President Ken Read said it would bring about a change in the company culture.

“A stronger bond between our teams in North America with our teams in Europe and New Zealand will allow North Sails to take another dominant step forward in more efficient design and manufacturing, as well as a more consistent sales and service approach,” Read said in 2014.

Grover said the Annapolis location will serve as testing ground for the retail expansion in the United States. Their plan calls for stores in New York, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Summertime clothing and apparel designed for a sailing experience, including waterproof jackets, will be interspersed with sailing specific equipment.

“We want our (clothing) products to show up on the same boats that (we’re) selling (our) sails to,” Grover said. “We’re just in the early stages of that, but we’ve had multiple meetings with the principals of the sail making company along with us here on the retail side.”

The location puts North Sails clothing just a few blocks from Helly Hansen, a maker of outdoor gear that offers a wide array of clothing for boaters.

Both companies are involved in sponsoring, with Helly Hansen a lead sponsor of the NOOD Regatta and North Sails backs the North Sails Rally Race.

Grover said the small Dock Street location is “not our ideal store,” with another store planned to open in the city in the future. Grover said the spot is important because “we really want to be at street level locations.”

One big advantage of the location its proximity to the fall boat shows, which run for two weeks in September and October. Together the United States Sailboat and Powerboat shows draw thousands of avid sailors and power boaters.

“It probably looks better than most stores in Annapolis today,” he added. ” . you’re going to walk in and have a feeling of not just great clothing, but very unique third party items as well.”

the north face sangro jacket Apparel maker VF boosts full

VF Corp (NYSE:VFC) announced Monday a boost to its full year outlook after reporting 24 percent increase to its third quarter profits.

The maker of apparel brands like Vans, JanSport, and, 7 For All Mankind, said it now expects revenues to rise between 22 percent and 23 percent, representing a range of $9.40 billion to $9.47 billion. It had previously expected sales growth between 12 percent and 13 percent.

For the three months ended September, VF posted net income of $300.7 million, or $2.69 per share, up 24 percent from $242.8 million, or $2.22 per share, a year ago. Adjusted for certain one time items, including a positive 25 cent impact associated with VFs acquisition of the Timberland brand, earnings were $2.87 per share. Analysts were expecting $2.58 per share for the quarter.

Revenues for the quarter were $2.75 billion, up 23 percent from $2.23 billion in the same period last year. Timberland added $163.6 million to revenues during the quarter.

Gross margins, however, shed 120 basis points to 45.3 percent in the quarter, from 46.5 percent in the third quarter of 2010. VF said higher product costs were to blame.

VF’s Outdoor and Action Sports segment, which includes brands like The North Face, JanSport, Vans, Reef, and now, Timberland, had revenues of $1.44 billion, up 37 percent. The addition of the Timberland and Smartwool brands added $163.6 million to revenues.

The Jeanswear division, including brands like Lee, Wrangler, and associated imprints, posted $727.6 million in sales, up eight percent, largely on international revenue growth of 22 percent, including over 50 percent growth in Asia, and double digit growth in Europe, Latin America and Canada.

Brands like Majestic, Red Kap, and Horace Small helped move revenues under VF’s Imagewear segment up 14 percent to $277.6 million. Protective Apparel and Industrial Uniform businesses boosted the segment’s results, as did its Licensed Sports Group portion, led by National Football League (NFL) apparel.

Sportswear revenues increased 18 percent to $151.8 million,

led by double digit growth in VF’s Nautica and Kipling brands.

VF’s Contemporary Brands business, which includes high end brands like 7 For All Mankind, Splendid, Ella Moss, and John Varvatos, rose 11 percent to $126.2 million. Direct to consumer revenues were helped by new stores, growth in comparable store locations, and higher e commerce revenues.

In other news, VF also announced that its board of directors approved a quarterly cash dividend of 72 cents per share. The dividend, which increased by 14 percent, is payable on December 19.

In New York, VF shares rose over four percent in premarket trading, adding another 2.16 percent as of 9:39 am EDT, to trade at $135.56.

the north apparel company Rab moves North American headquarters to Louisville

the north face lightweight jacket apparel company Rab moves North American headquarters to Louisville

A British mountaineering clothing and outdoor gear company has established its North American headquarters in Louisville.

Rab opened an office, showroom and warehouse at 685 South Arthur Ave., a 3,000 square foot space that will house sales, marketing and distribution operations.

Rab joins a number of other athletic and outdoor gear companies that have made similar moves recently in basing some of their operations in Boulder County.

Founded by climber Rab Carrington in 1981, Rab’s products include outdoor apparel, sleeping bags and gear designed for extreme cold.

Louisville’s geographic location and the area’s wealth of outdoors enthusiasts and knowledgeable work force were some of the primary reasons Rab selected Louisville over others such as Salt Lake City, Seattle and Burlington, Vt., said Matt Gowar, Rab’s chief executive officer and owner. Gower founded Rab’s parent company, Equip Outdoor Technologies, in 1993.

About five people including Gowar, who relocated his family to Boulder for a three year period work at the Louisville office. The intention is to soon grow that number to eight employees, he said.

By having a presence in North America, Rab should be able to further address the growing popularity of its products and different desires than the European market, notably a higher demand in winter oriented items, Gowar said.”The business has been growing here,” he said. “Today the market is a little tougher . but we’re predicting things will get better.”

Gowar’s optimism is based on his view that Rab is providing something different than its competitors.

“A lot of the name brands, some you see on Pearl Street, including North Face and Patagonia are becoming more lifestyle (brands),” he said. “We’re remaining very technical. There’s a demand from the consumer for that technical brand.”

Within the past three years, a number of outdoor companies selected Boulder for unique elements of their businesses, including:

Yoga and climbing apparel company prAna opened its first and flagship brick and mortar store on the Pearl Street Mall in 2007. headquarters, but last month moved those operations to California.

Earlier this year,
the north apparel company Rab moves North American headquarters to Louisville
Gramicci, a California climbing and outdoor clothing company, opened a showroom in downtown Boulder to serve as a central hub for some of the retailers that carry the products.

The North Face and Patagonia also opened new retail stores at Twenty Ninth Street and the Pearl Street Mall, respectively.

The outdoor industry has not been immune from the ills of the recession. For the first eight months of the year, sales totaled $2.9 billion, a 5 percent decline from the same period last year, according to the Outdoor Industry Association, a Boulder based trade organization.

During the month of August, sales in the industries four major categories equipment, equipment accessories, apparel and footwear were down, according to an Oct. 7 report from the association.

Some “bright spots” noted by the industry include: hiking boots, multi sport shoes, recreational tents and some accessories, according to the report.

the north face fleece jacket Aon Hewitt Research Reveals Steady Progression in Global Employee

the north face outlet Aon Hewitt Research Reveals Steady Progression in Global Employee

LINCOLNSHIRE, Ill., April 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ New research from Aon Hewitt, the global talent, retirement and health solutions business of Aon plc (NYSE: AON), finds that employee engagement levels and employees perceptions of their overall work experience are following suit in a majority of regions worldwide[1].

Aon Hewitt 2014 Trends in Global Employee Engagement annual study, which represents the perspectives of 7 million employees across more than 6,000 companies in 155 countries, indicates that employee engagement levels increased to 61 percent in 2013, up 1 percentage point from 2012 and three percentage points from 2011. Changes in the way employees view their overall work experience across the globe were also revealed. Perceptions of certain areas like safety and benefits have improved (+6 points and +5 points, respectively), yet there is deterioration in strategic areas like business unit leadership ( 4 points), innovation ( 2 points) and a compelling employee value proposition (falling 2 points for each of the last two consecutive years).

“A number of factors, including social, demographic, technological and macro level economic changes, have challenged business leaders to create agile, innovative organizations that can grow,” said Dr. Ken Oehler, Aon Hewitt global engagement practice leader. “But creating this type of organization is impossible without having engaged employees, and companies with low to moderate engagement levels will struggle. Our study shows that organizations overcoming business and people challenges are investing in a culture of engagement built on performance focus, strong reputation and superior leadership. These investments are resulting in stronger company performance.”

Indeed, Aon Hewitt study found that high performing companies (known as Best Employers[2]) drive better business outcomes. Marked by strong leadership, reputation, performance orientation and employee engagement, these companies outperform average companies on sales growth (+6 points), operating margin (+4 points) and total shareholder return (+6 points). They even outperform those companies with high employee engagement alone.

2013 Engagement Levels by Region

With its forecasted population and growth, the region with the largest engagement increases in 2013 was Africa/Middle East (with a gain of 8 percentage points). Asia Pacific engagement increased for the first time in two years (up by 3 percentage points). North America recovered from its 2012 decline (increasing by 2 percentage points), while Europe remained flat at 57 percent engagement. Though Latin America remains at the top of the engagement leader board worldwide, the region dropped 4 percentage points to 70 percent engagement.

As in past years, career opportunities ranked as the highest driver of engagement. Managing performance ranked second, followed by organizational reputation. Pay, which ranked as the third highest driver of engagement in 2012, dropped to fourth. Communication rounded out the top five.

While the top three drivers in North America were consistent with the global rankings, employees in this region placed more importance on brand alignment and recognition, outranking pay. Managing performance ranked second globally and fifth in both Asia Pacific and Europe.

Millennials Least Engaged Generation

Baby Boomers continue to hold the highest level of engagement, with 66 percent engaged, followed by Generation X (60 percent) and Millennials (56 percent).

“While differences in geography, culture and generation impact what drives engagement for employees globally, Aon Hewitt research also shows that there is actually more harmony than discord,” said Oehler. “Universally, employees want to be part of an organization that offers career opportunities, provides rewards for performance and has a solid reputation. However, there is no one size fits all solution. Understanding your employees and what drives them, and subsequently tailoring your communication to resonate best with respective groups, will pay dividends in making engagement happen.”

Leadership Engagement Highest and On the Rise

Consistent with Aon Hewitt 2012 analysis, engagement levels continue to vary by job level. Executives and senior managers remain the most engaged with 75 percent engagement globally. This group also saw the largest increase in engagement over last year with an increase of 9 percentage points. Middle managers and frontline employees saw slight increases to 65 percent and 61 percent respectively, while professional employees, such as engineers, lawyers and nurses, maintained their status of having the lowest level of engagement globally, with only 54 percent engaged (decrease of 1 percentage point from 2012).

“Our research shows that raising the bar on employee engagement starts with the leaders themselves,” said Oehler. “The continuous rise in executive level engagement may be a promising sign to come that we see an upward shift in engagement levels of other employee segments in the near future.”

Call to Action Make Engagement Happen

According to Aon Hewitt, evolving economic, technological, demographic and social changes are requiring businesses to rapidly respond to the myriad of extraordinary pressures they now face. Organizations have to look deeper and focus on engaging talent in the right core behaviors. To make engagement happen, Aon Hewitt experts believe organizations must:

Understand talent trends. Understanding the global economic and technological trends affecting businesses is essential to building a relevant talent strategy. It important to be aware of the generational and demographical characteristics of employees, as they will, in large part, define the expectations these employees have of their company.

Focus on the behaviors required for performance and business success. Organizations must clearly define for employees what engagement looks like. “For many employers, there is an increasing need for agility, flexibility, speed and an ability to learn and adapt,” said Oehler. “Organizations can further encourage behaviors that signify engagement by aligning performance management, learning and development, and rewards and recognition with their expectations for success.”

Deliver on a compelling Employee Value Proposition (EVP). According to Aon Hewitt, there is a growing disconnect between what companies require, what they are offering and what employees expect in return. Organization reputation being a top engagement driver provides insight into how employees define value from their company. Aon Hewitt research shows that companies that deliver on their EVP are more likely to have employees who speak positively about their organization, more likely to retain people, and more likely to cultivate an environment of employees who aim for excellence.

Create a culture of engagement. According to Aon Hewitt study, an organization health is based on employees perceptions of its brand, reputation, performance focus and leadership excellence. To build a culture of engagement, organizations first must understand the composition of their workforce (generational, functional and organizational) and build tailored programs that motivate and inspire the unique makeup of their employee base. “Employers often find that there are basic elements of their HR programs, such as benefits, safety and work life balance, that may be key drivers inhibiting engagement,” said Oehler. “Getting the foundation right is often the first step in building a culture of engagement.”

Build engaging leaders. Previous Aon Hewitt research has indicated that leaders own the employee engagement equation. They make critical decisions on the key factors within an organization that impact employee engagement, such as performance goals, pay and recognition, type and frequency of communication to employees, as well as work process and innovation. “Leaders decisions can effectively drive or hinder engagement. Leaders who seize the opportunity to engage themselves, engage others and holistically drive a culture of brand, reputation, performance and engagement will help their teams and organizations achieve better business outcomes,” said Oehler. We advise, design and execute a wide range of solutions that enable clients to cultivate talent to drive organizational and personal performance and growth, navigate retirement risk while providing new levels of financial security, and redefine health solutions for greater choice, affordability and wellness.

No way to cinch the rope, which will bother some people, but its easy enough to drape over the bag and doesn move about terribly for me. I also like that it meets carry on standards for most airlines; allows some added flexibility when traveling for a climbing adventure. It replaced a BD Speed 30 for me and while not as comfortable, its more versatile for the stated reasons. It doesn swallow as much gear as the all day, bring everything you own BD Creek 50, but it still fits a surprising amount.
