Additional input from Answers.com contributors: . Lawyers will all earn different amounts depending on… the city, the types of clients served, and how much he or she is willing to work. However, family lawyers tend to be paid less than other types of lawyers. A reasonable range for a family lawyer in a medium to large city would be $100,000-$200,000. . Lawyers can earn anywhere between $250K - $350K but it depends on how much the lawyers charge you. . In actuality your salary depends on your experience. 1 year of experience normally pays from 40k-80k 1-4 years pays about 60k-90k 5-9 years pays about 80k-120k 10-19 years pays about 80k-140k 20+ years 85k-157k (Although it is true that some lawyers get payed much more than this these are a very few kind of like Bill Gates vs every other entrepreneur that has ever failed.) Also all of these figures are based off of my resource- . There are a number of variables that go into answering a question such as this. As a soon to be graduated law student, I can answer what typical starting pay is like for a first year associate. Private practice starting salaries vary GREATLY by city and size of the firm. Cities such as New York and Washington tend to pay top dollar. Large firms in these markets are starting first year associates out at $160,000/year. Large firms in secondary markets such as Cleveland, Denver, and Minneapolis are starting their associates out at around $120,000. As a general rule, the smaller the firm in the smaller the city, the less your starting salary will be. For example firms in my hometown of 200,000 are starting their first year associates at around $70-$75,000. I have even heard of some firms paying as low as $35,000 to their first year associates. . Future/current law students - please do not be misled by these large starting salary figures. Landing a job that pays even $70-75,000 is not an easy task. Because in law school, there is a strict curve, firms know what percentile of the class that you are in. The top paying firms recruit only from the top of the class at the top law schools. If you are at the bottom or even near the middle of your class in a lower-ranked law school, do not expect to make these kinds of figures unless you have a special asset that the firm needs. . There is a common misconception in America that if you go to law school, you will earn a high salary. The truth is that an overwhelming amount of law students graduate without jobs in the legal field. To land a job at a top paying firm will take hard work while attending a respectable law school. So the moral is, work hard and it can pay off. Don't slack around because your $90,000 investment into grad school may become a huge burden when you have to repay those loans while flipping burgers at McDonald's. . This varies quite a bit, of course, based on experience and specialty. Moreover, many lawyers work for themselves. They charge their clients an hourly rate. . I am a pre-law student, and I have done extensive amounts of research on the field of law. The salary amount, of course, varies with location you would like to practice at or what kind of law you are thinking of doing. But the average salary starting out (Example: your first year in a law firm) is estimated to be anywhere from $60,000-$70,000 per year. The more experienced you are does nothing but helps you; the average for a successful lawyer can be anywhere from $200,000 to sometimes 1 million plus. As I said before, it's all about where you practice and how much experience is "under your belt". . There are too many variables to be able to give a proper answer to your question. A freshly graduated law school student will be lucky to get $30k a year, while a highly experienced and well known trial lawyer could make millions in a year. . It's difficult to be specific without knowing the area in which the attorney would be practicing, how long the person has been practicing, the geographical area and so forth. An attorney who caters to the wealthy can make a great deal of money while one who works for the ACLU is rather far down the economic ladder. Being a practicing attorney is much the same as being a doctor or educator one makes the decision as to how they wish to apply their knowledge and acts upon it in the way that reflects their personal ideology. . The average amount that lawyers make is from $100-300 dollars an hour. It depends on how much you charge the clients. . It depends upon the type of practice that one chooses. The majority of attorneys do not make the enormous sums that the general public believes. Attorneys practicing family or general law have an average yearly salary of $65,000 to $72,000. . Depends on where you work. Different kinds of lawyers earn different kinds of salaries. In Canada, the starting salary for a person with a law degree is around C$74,300 In Canada, the average salary for all lawyers is around C$99,200. In Canada, most lawyers earn on average about C$29.75 per hour. This is from workfutures.bc.ca. Of course, lawyers don't only earn money by representing clients in court or drawing up legal documents. Lawyers can earn commission by referring their clients to other lawyers with an expertise in a certain area of the law. Depending on the reputation of the referred lawyer, commissions can go as high as C$50,000. . The middle half of all lawyers earned between $61,060 and $136,810 a year in 2002. The lowest-paid 10 percent earned less than $44,490. The highest-paid 10 percent earned more than $145,600 a year. The pay for lawyers depends on whom they work for. It also depends on how long they have been lawyers and on how many special things they have learned about the law. In general, lawyers are among the highest paid workers in the country. . That's a question for which there can be no specific answer as there are many variables. The type of field and practice, criminal, civil, prosecutor, defense, non profit organization, public, private practice or firm, geographical area and so forth. And of course experience usually applies in any type of employment or profession. . Different types of legal employers generally have different pay scales. Private practice usually pays more than government. Government usually pays more than not-for-profits. However, many factors affect salaries of attorneys in private practice. One factor is the size of the firm, small medium or large. Large firms generally pay more. That is not to say that attorneys at some small boutique firms don't make just as much, if not more, than lawyers at big firms. That does happen, but on a average big firms pay more. To get into a big firm, you can do it right out of(or during) law school but you generally need to come out of a school with a good reputation and/or have really good grades. A school with a lesser reputation has less of their students making it to big firms but those graduating at the top of their class and participating in journals, law review or moot court competitions can make it into a big firm. It is also possible to get in the back door of a big firm after a few years of practice. Experience and proven success in a specialized area may open the door. Another factor is what type of law you practice. Some areas of the law simply deal with clients that have more money. Corporate and financial related cases often deal with deep pockets therefore pay well. Lawyers advising small businesses naturally will charge less than the corporate attorneys. Other areas may have drastic pay differences within themselves, such as criminal or family law(divorce) This is due to factors such as the attorney's reputation. Another factor is geography. Northeast and west coast pay well as do cities versus rural areas. Experience also makes a difference. A senior person bills at a higher rate than a junior person, therefore, a senior person will be compensated more. An equity partner makes more than a non-equity partner which makes more than an associate. . The best resource for this topic would be www.findlaw.com. You can find information on salaries there. In Boston (2007) many large firms are adopting the salary scales of their New York offices. Three of the larger firms have starting salaries for first year associates at $160,000 plus a year end bonus. Bonuses usually start out at fixed rates for the first few years (as long as you complete a minimum amount of billable hours) and then become more discretionary as you achieve seniority. Many other firms start at $125,000 - $145,000 plus bonus, so the figures that you see in the paragraphs above don't reflect what can be earned at large law firms. However, these firms are very competitive and difficult to get into. After remaining at a law firm for eight years or so you can make partner. There are two levels of "partnership" at many firms. We'll call them "regular" and "money" partners. Regular partners can make salaries around $500 - $800,000, but do not directly share in the company's profits. "Money" partners make similar salaries, but they also split up the firm's profits as their year end bonuses which are much larger than everyone else's bonuses. It is not unusual for lawyers at this level to make $1 - 4 million per year. (MORE)
According to Salary List, the average is about $106K, ranging from $800-$40K also. . According to the American Dental Association, the average general dentist made 185,000 in 2004, the average dental specialist made 315,000. The average hygienist made 62000 in 2004. So in reality dentist make abo…ut 3 times what hygienists make. [I am a practicing dentist with 20 years experience. These numbers are the most accurate that I have seen posted] . Dentists make about twice that of a dental hygienist. I am going to college right now for dental hygiene in mass and i know i can expect to leave school with a starting salary of about 30-35 an hour. that averages out to be 63,700 a year. So dentists average about 130,000 dollars a year or even more. It depends what type of dentistry they are involved in. Also, some get compensated through commission. . I am a practicing dentist. I made $410,000 last year and will improve on that slightly this year. I do some pro bono work, but not as much as I could. That will increase as my net worth does. My salary is certainly on the higher end of the bell curve. I have an associate dentist working for me and he is just finishing his first year in practice. He'll make approximately $145,000 this year. So, experience and stage of practice makes a big difference. The more indispensable you are, the more you're worth to society (pro sports, Hollywood, etc. being exceptions to that rule obviously). . 130,000 +/- . Whoever is asking this question is definitely on the right track. My wife is a dental assistant and I have been around many of her employers over the years and they all have one thing in common, their filthy rich. Dentistry is a very good field to go into and you are guaranteed much, much, money. It does take 8 years of college though, so get started now. . For many dentists in private practice, it's between $70,000 and $120,000 per year, take home. Note that managed care is not cutting into dentist's salaries as quickly as it is in other professions, like doctors. . I have been practicing family and cosmetic dentistry for five year and netted $960,000 last year. This year I will easy make over a million. However, I work very hard, have a large and talented staff and am very talented. Very few can accomplish this income. . Ask someone at the reference desk of your local public library for the Occupational Outlook Handbook. It lists all kinds of information you would need to know,(including the salary) of just about any occupation you can think of. . I have a friend who is a dentist and has been asking me to consider taking that route as well. He says pay ranges are around 120k-160k. . It really depends on experience and where you are going to be practicing.... it could ran from $70,00-120,000. . Dentists can make well over 400,000 a year, depends on what procedures they do. . To answer the original question dentists generally start around 135K and can work their way up to around 450K in private practice. That being said some teach or do research and earn less, while others join large group practices or specialize and earn more. . It also depends on where the dentist has his or her practice. A dentist in Utah (which is saturated with dentists) will make significantly less than a dentist in another state. A dentist in Alaska will make significantly more than anywhere else, in general. . The average Australian dentist earns $90,000 per year. Give or take some for location, competition and experience. It depends on a lot of factors. Where you practice: in a big city, or in a rural area. Which State you practice in: Utah is flooded with dentists, so Dentists there do not make nearly as much as Dentists in most other states. However, Dentists in Alaska can make over a million dollars per year. How many other Dentists are in the area: the more Dentists, the less patients. How long you've been building clientele: Dentists are like hair dressers. It can take years to build up clients. Whether you own your own practice, are an Associate Dentist, or work for a big company that owns practices around the country (in any of these cases, the more experience you have, the more you will make). Dentists can choose how many days they work, and if they work more they will make more. . Usually, Dentists don't make as much just out of school (unless they are taking over their fathers practice or something). It can take years, but you can make anywhere from 80,000 (if you are a military dentist) to 200,000 (or more) within a few years of working. Specialists make a lot more (but they have more schooling) And as I mentioned earlier, Dentists in Alaska make a LOT of money. My husband is a Dental Student, and so we know a LOT about this. (MORE)

Most novelists: nothing. That is, nothing from writing novels; they probably have day jobs if they are not supported by someone or independently wealthy. Few novels find a publisher. Few published novels sell well. Some stats from Harper's Index (June 2007): Minimum number of different bo…oks sold in the U.S. last year, as tracked by Nielsen BookScan: 1,446,000 Number of those that sold fewer than 99 copies: 1,123,000 Number that sold more than 100,000: 483 For a few novelists, a very few, those that hit the best-seller lists: there's no upper limits. To skip right to the very top, J.K. Rowling is listed as the second-richest woman in entertainment (after Oprah) in a 2007 Forbes list, with estimated earnings of $1 billion.

not sure exactly but cardiothorasic surgery is quite costly and as the nephew of a cardio thorasic surgeon i can say that one surgery can go up to about 40.000 rand so for a surgery that last four hours at two a day and 20 working days a month that a hell of a lot of money and trust me it shows but …then again he has no time for his family so it isn't all fun and games. Not to mention he did give up 12-14 years of his life after high school(and likely was one who overachieved and had a limited filling of fun in high school) to work as hard as possible and beat the competition, without pay until the end, and came out in great debt(which would be payed off without too much trouble, as such specialized surgeons are only created as needed, as spots for programs are limited, probaby by the AMA, and therefor would have a guaranteed(and high paying) job, unlike a doctor graduating from medical school). Also, of that $40,000, a HUGE amount of it will go to overhead, such as extremely costly medical malpractice insurance for everyone involved in the procedure(s)/operation(s). Doctors that make so much do so largely in part due to the need to attract the BEST of the best(to become doctors and be the best in med school.. the most capable will arrive at the top), because such medical work is VERY risky and dangerous, even with current technology.. which also would be the need for malpractice insurance to me so high. It is far too easy for something bogus to hold up in court and unconstitutionally/unfairly be ruled in favor of the plantiff. If the odds of success are not very good, the cost of insurance and therefor the procedure/operation will just rise, because there will be a lawsuit regardless, and the defendant will probably win, even if every party knows there is a good chance of a good doctor not being able to have success/being strayed by other factors. The average salary for a cardiovascular surgeon is around 800,000-900,000USD$$$ per year. (MORE)
United States According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics the estimated mean annual wage for pharmacists as of May 2008 is, $104,260. This would amount to $50.13 per hour. Australia Wages for pharmacists in Australia appear to have stagnated.The award wages for a pharmacist is $812 a… week. Pharmacist graduates are the lowest paid university graduates most years. Most pharmacists do earn above the award wage; the average male pharmacist earns $65,000, a female pharmacist averages $56,500. Over recent years, wages have stagnated, and even gone backwards. There are more graduates expected in the next few years making it even harder to get a job. Job security and increase in wages with regards to c.p.i could be unlikely. This is due to the large numbers of pharmacy graduates in recent years, and government desire to lower PBS costs. Contract and casual work is becoming more common. A contract pharmacist is self-employed and often called a locum; these pharmacists may be hired for one shift or for a longer period of time. There are accounts of underemployment and unemployment emerging recently. Canada The wages in Canada at about CAD $95,000 are slightly better than Australia but not as good as U.S.A.

Answer . Richard Dawkins was born 1941 in East Africa . A British Zoologist, he is the Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science at Oxford University; Fellow of New College; Fellow of The Royal Society. Brought up in an Anglican family, Richard Dawkins is an atheist.. V…iews on atheism . Perhaps the best of the available euphemisms for atheist is nontheist. It lacks the connotation of positive conviction that there is definitely no god, and it could therefore easily be embraced by Teapot or Tooth Fairy Agnostics. It is less familiar than atheist and lacks its phobic connotations. Yet, unlike a completely new coining, its meaning is clear. If we want a euphemism at all, nontheist is probably the best. The alternative which I favour is to renounce all euphemisms and grasp the nettle of the word atheism itself, precisely because it is a taboo word carrying frissons of hysterical phobia. Critical mass may be harder to achieve than with some non-confrontational euphemism, but if we did achieve it with the dread word atheist, the political impact would be all the greater. By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out. I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world.. Religion teaches the dangerous nonsense that death is not the end. == By Richard Dawkins (MORE)
Richard Dawkins is the Charles Simonyi Professor for the Public Understanding of Science, at Oxford University. In this position, he clearly has a sound understanding of scientific issues such as evolution and the creation of the universe. This has led him to believe that Creationism is inherently u…ntrue. Since his role is to advance the public understaning of Science, he has written books such as The God Delusion (Bantam Press, 2006) to explain his views. I think that Professor Dawkins sees Creationism as dependently linked to religious belief. Where he views Creationism to contend with Science, which he asserts is quite often, Dawkins prefers to focus on the inherent failure of the underlying religious belief rather than simply demonstrating the error of the Creationist belief and leaving the proponent to continue in his or her religious beliefs.. The debate around creationism and evolution is more fully covered in: http://christianity.answers.com/theology/the-story-of-creation (MORE)
Richard Dawkins in heterosexual - having been married more than once. He has one daughter. Christy Hitchens & Richard have a lot in common and someday we will read about Dick and his time at university. Hitch never made a secret of the fact that his bisexuality continued well into his universit…y years. In this honesty, he was so unlike a number of the male characters in Hollinghurst's "The Stranger's Child," who - having settled into conventional heterosexuality and parenthood - went to great lengths to conceal their youthful affairs with the doomed queer poet at the center of the story. In his memoir, Hitch, in describing his sexual encounters with young men while a penniless and militantly left-wing student at Oxford, relates how he'd frequently be invited by wealthy and attractive young men, often right-wingers, to lavish dinner parties with good food and even better wine and spirits and would often accept, knowing that he would have to "sing for his supper" - a euphemism that should be understood as not merely being entertaining but as "putting out." Hitch wrote that "now and then, even though I was by then fixed on the pursuit of young women, a mild and mildly enjoyable relapse would occur and I suppose I can claim thisâ¦ of two young men who became members of Margaret Thatcher's government." This offhand mention made headlines when "Hitch 22" was published in the UK. "So who WERE the two Tory ministers who had gay flings with Christopher Hitchens at Oxford?" screamed the headline on the Daily Mail, the right-wing tabloid that is the world's third-largest English language newspaper. It went on to quote Oxford contemporaries of Hitch's as saying "He had a reputation for being AC/ DC and, although a Trot, he was fancied by quite a few gay Tories and moved in those circles." While the Mail interviewed a number of senior Tories whom they considered possible candidates, and who acknowledged that Hitch was "sexy and charming" to men as well as women, they could get none of them to admit to any carnal knowledge of the inimitable memoirist. In my view, Hitch was queer in several ways - both in the Merriam-Webster definitions of the word as "eccentric," "unusual," "unique" (he certainly was "sui generis" ) and in the sense that he "got" us in a way that few non-gay writers ever have. Just dip into Hitch's massive essay collection, "Arguably," published last year by Hachette Book Group's Twelve collection. It's a terrific reminder of the erudition and range of which Hitch was capable and of his great gifted pen. There's a lot about homosexuals and homosexuality in many of the assembled articles - just look at his devastating readings of that old closet case Somerset Maugham, or his send-up of the ex-bugger Stephen Spender, who went to great lengths to expunge his youthful homoerotic poetry from later editions of his collected poems and rewrote other poems to remove lines betraying his attractions to boys. Hitch neatly dispatches Spender, who began as a Communist and ended up editing a CIA front magazine called Encounter as a somewhat reactionary curmudgeon, by quoting this devastating limerick: Then up spake the bold Stephen Spender "you may think my conscience is tender You might think my heart Was my sensitive part - But you should see my poor old pudenda ."

You'd have to ask him directly for an accurate answer. From his writings, I would infer that he would regard wars in different ways according to the circumstances. The Second World War he would probably feel was justified: the Allies took forceful action to eliminate an evil regime. The Cru…sades, by contrast, were basically caused entirely by differing faith positions. They achieved nothing positive, and were an appalling waste of human life, and a source of tremendous suffering - for no real reason. That's what I imagine he'd feel.
