Taylor Camp.

In 1969, 13 young college students, dropouts and Vietnam vets fled to Kauai to escape campus riots and police brutality in the states. While in Kauai they were arrested for squatting and sentenced to 90 days in jail. Howard Taylor, Elizabeth Taylor's brother, bailed the group out and allowed them to camp on his vacant ocean front property. They were left alone without any restrictions whatsoever. 

The Taylor Camp commune began in a clothing optional tree-house village at the end of the road on the island's North Shore. The camp grew exponentially with new ex-patriots, more vets and more nature seeking nudists.

In 1977 the government condemned the village to make way for a state park.

John Wehrheim's 1970's photographs document the the community that created order without rules...or clothes.

Biochemists/Biophysicists - Doctorate Don't spend all your time scribbling notes in the interview, as this will be a distraction for both you and the interviewer, but do take some notes in order to jog your memory later. You should make note of the interviewer's names, job title, and role(s) in the company. Notes taken on the organizational structure, business operations or any major clients mentioned in the course of your conversations will help you later, as well. Besides these, you can also opt for sending letter asking for salary hike. However, it is not an effective medium for asking salary rise as it fosters only one way communication. You can also opt for a combination of these two methods such as sending a letter as the first step and asking for a meeting to discuss it in much better way.
