California Split __LINK__
On their way to Reno, Bill and Charlie pool their money to stake Bill in a poker game. (One of the players is former world champion Amarillo Slim, portraying himself.) Bill wins $18,000 and becomes convinced he is on a hot streak. He plays blackjack, then roulette, and finally craps, winning more and more money. When Bill loses after a long streak at the craps table, he is drained and apathetic. Charlie is eager to continue gambling at other casinos, but after they split their winnings ($82,000), Bill tells Charlie he is quitting and going home. Charlie does not understand this but sees that his friend is sincere, so they go their separate ways.
Roger Ebert, in his review for the Chicago Sun-Times, wrote, "At the end of California Split we realize that Altman has made a lot more than a comedy about gambling; he's taken us into an American nightmare, and all the people we met along the way felt genuine and looked real." Lauding the film as "a great movie and [...] a great experience, too," he awarded it a full four stars. Vincent Canby in The New York Times called it "a fascinating and vivid movie, not quite comparable to any other movie that I can immediately think of." He praised the film for being "dense with fine, idiosyncratic detail, a lot of which is supplied by Mr. Gould and Mr. Segal as well as by members of the excellent supporting cast." He put it on his year-end unranked list of the best films of 1974. Gene Siskel liked most of the film and awarded three out of four stars, but disliked the ending for "events too pat and a moral that's banal." A review by Arthur D. Murphy in Variety reported that "the film is technically and physically handsome, all the more so for being mostly location work, but lacks a cohesive and reinforced sense of story direction. The stars have done better comedy before." Charles Champlin of the Los Angeles Times was negative, writing that "for the most part, 'California Split' seems one very long and very loud actors workshop improv, done in card parlors and casinos instead of on a bare stage. The garbled, stomped-on, incomprehensible dialogue which was annoying in the early stages of 'McCabe and Mrs. Miller' here seems so self-indulgently and needlessly overdone as to give a whole new dimension to the splitting headache." Gary Arnold of The Washington Post called it "a slight but cheerful and beguiling episodic comedy."
A primary impetus for the bar split was several years of scandals that generated frequent negative headlines and criticism asserting the State Bar was distracted from its mission of protecting the public from unethical lawyers.
California Gov. Gavin Newsom, on Sept. 16, 2021, signed into law Senate Bill (SB) 9, a landmark law that would allow for the ministerial approval of certain housing development projects containing up to two dwelling units (i.e., duplexes) on a single-family zoned parcel. The legislation, which was passed by the California Legislature on Sept. 1 and takes effect Jan. 1, 2022, would also allow for the ministerial approval of certain lot splits to allow property owners to construct up to two units on the newly created lots. Below are some steps that single-family homeowners and developers can take to understand SB 9, its qualifying criteria, and implication on future projects.
In addition to permitting two units on a single family lot, the proposed legislation would allow qualifying lot splits to be approved ministerially pursuant to a parcel map, upon meeting a number of criteria, including many of the same criteria for the two units described above. Additional criteria include the following:
In addition to the increase in density in single-family zones and lot splits in single-family zones, SB 9 would increase the extension of a map life from 12 months to 24 months and would allow four years of extensions in lieu of three years for subdivision maps with off-site improvements above qualifying costs (Gov't Code Sec. 66452.6).
SB 9 is designed to increase the housing stock in single-family residential zones, as it allows not only two dwelling units per parcel, but also certain lot splits with two housing units on each. SB 9 builds upon prior state legislation that has proven successful in expediting the permitting and construction of ADUs and JADUs. SB 9 offers an alternative path for homeowners to add up to three more dwelling units on their property with minimal regulatory hurdles.
Other practical questions may arise now that SB 9 has been enacted. One such area is how SB 9 will intersect with the rights of lenders/mortgagees of existing single-family properties. If an existing lot is split into two, the newly created second lot would presumably remain encumbered by the existing mortgage(s). Questions have arisen whether lenders would consent to a lot split that might result in the release of security, or whether subordination and non-disturbance agreements are needed between existing and new lender(s)/mortgagee(s), if different regarding the financing the construction of units on the newly created second lot. Other questions have arisen about the extent to which the provisions of SB 9 prevail over the rules governing common interest communities.
Although the extent of SB 9's potential remains to be seen, one thing is for certain: The California Legislature is committed to addressing the state's dire housing crisis, and it views by-right duplexes and lot splits as one weapon to do so.
Assuming you are a nonexempt employee, it looks like you should be paid overtime for those two hours that you spent at the meeting. Because you make $30 per hour, mostlikely you are not entitled to split-shift premiums. This answer is based only on the facts provided in your comment. To give you a complete answer I would need to know more information. Feel free to contact me directly if you have further questions.
I am a restaurant owner. One of my employees works 4hrs ($10/hr pay) during lunch and then 3.83hrs for dinner performing different duties at the pay rate of $8/hr. His break between both shifts is more then 1hr. How should I calculate the split shift fee? What rate should I use towards the calculations, $10, $8 or maybe an average of $9? Please advise. Thank you.
I work from 5.30am to 9:30 and come back 3:00 to 7:00pm at a hone care and only get paid minimum wage am i entitle to the split shift compensation been doing it for a year now but i havent revieved my additiinal hour????
A split or differentiated property tax system introduces non-neutrality to the tax code because it encourages investment in one class of properties over another. Under a split roll system, classes of property can be pitted against each other, changing the incentives to own or invest in different kinds of property, and allowing local policymakers to ratchet up tax burdens without being seen as raising taxes on homeowners.
On November 3, 2020, voters in California will decide on Proposition 15. The measure would introduce a split roll property tax system in California by changing the assessment regime for commercial property. It does this by requiring commercial property to be reassessed according to market value beginning in FY 2023 and every three years hereafter. Property used for both commercial and residential purposes will be reassessed proportional to its commercial use.
Opponents filed suit, alleging that proposing to split the state would, by definition, be a major revision of the state constitution that Article 18 says can only be initiated by the Legislature, either directly or indirectly.
However, the case left open the question of how long between shifts would constitute a split shift. For example, can an employee take a two hour lunch period without obligating the employer to pay the split shift pay? Until courts clarify this issue, conservative employers limit the meal periods to one hour.
In California, a split shift is a work day that is interrupted by unpaid time off work that is not a meal break. You have a split shift if you work in the morning, are given several hours off, then work again in the evening. You may be entitled to a shift split premium of 1 hour at the minimum wage.
Under California law, split shifts are multiple working shifts during a single work day that are interrupted by time off work. This time off work must be unpaid and cannot be a bona fide rest or meal break. It has to be a work schedule that is set by the employer.1
The California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement (DLSE) has stated that interrupting 2 shifts with an unpaid period of more than 1 hour creates a split shift.2 This rule, however, has not been adopted by courts in California. Most employers follow it when assigning work schedules, though.
For example: Mark is a security guard. His employer assigns him the night shift from 10pm to 6am. This means that, on any given work day, Mark will technically have 2 nonconsecutive periods of work: One in the early morning from midnight to 6am, and the other late at night from 10pm to 11:59pm. However, neither of those shifts themselves are interrupted. Therefore, they are not split shifts.3
For example: Monique makes the state minimum wage of $15.50 per hour at her retail job selling cell phones. Her employer assigns her a split shift schedule of 2 4-hour shifts: The first from 8am to 12pm, and a second from 3pm to 7pm. She is entitled to her normal hourly wage of $124 (8 hours at $15.50 per hour), plus the split shift premium of an additional $15.50. If she worked in a city or county with a higher minimum wage, like Los Angeles, the premium would be higher.
If your employer is assigning split shifts and then not paying the split shift premium that you are entitled to receive, you can file a wage and hour lawsuit. These claims demand: 041b061a72
