 Complaint: Cumulus Media Inc., Richard J. Bonick, Jr., Daniel O'Donnell and Richard W. Weening, Defendants
Cumulus is engaged in the acquisition, operation and development of radio stations in small and mid-sized markets throughout the United States.
Cumulus' traffic scheduling system, however, was designed principally to record revenue from on-air advertisements and could not generally calculate the amount of revenue generated by the sale of non-radio advertisements.
Cumulus' internal accounting controls over revenue recognition only required that the individuals who entered information from advertising contracts into Cumulus' traffic scheduling system inform their managers about any advertising contracts that looked "odd." These individuals were not given instruction as to what contracts should be considered "odd" and thus, could not make such a determination.

 Weather Elements: Cumulus Humilis: A Fair Weather Cloudscape
Early spring is often a good time for cumulus humilis formation because the warming sun still has limited strength to heat the ground surface, particularly if snow and ice cover the soil.
High pressure systems in early spring often retain some of their winter weight, and the excess pressure sinks the colder air toward the surface, warming it by compression to form a rather strong temperature inversion.
Since the surrounding air within the high pressure cell is rather uniform in its temperature and moisture properties, the condensation level (also called the lifting condensation level and the cloud base) occurs at a rather consistent altitude over the region (usually around 3200 to 5000 metres or 2000 to 3000 feet).
