Business credit holds a lot of promise for small business owners, but comes with some caveats. Parties to a lawsuit resolve their dispute without having a trial. Settlements often involve the payment of compensation by one party in at least partial satisfaction of the other party’s claims, but usually do not include the admission of fault. Fruit of the Poisonous Tree – Property seized or statements made subsequent to and because of an illegal search or interrogation. Fruit of the poisonous tree is generally not admissible in evidence because it is tainted by the illegal search or interrogation. Five years after the attack, he sent a second video to the media in United States, in which he defended the attacks and threatened the American public talking about attacks that had not yet happened. If Congress approves Obama’s categories of people likely to engage in violent acts, overnight millions of lawful U.S. activists could be subject to Indefinite Prolonged Detention. When you examine Obama’s speech, it appears Obama wants retroactive power to incarcerate anyone government claims (prior) supported violent acts on the premise, that person is likely to engage in violent acts in the future: U.S. activists would be vulnerable because no activist can control what other activists or groups might do illegally they network with domestically or overseas. Government would only have to claim a person; group or organization might commit a violent act in the future to order Preventative Detention of lawful participants with no evidence whatsoever. Americans would be afraid to speak out. In the U.S., nearly 4.2 million people worked from home in 2000, up from 3.4 million in 1990. Working from home saves energy and time by cutting out the commute, but it may increase your home energy bills a lot unless you use energy-saving office equipment. Then we have a Senator of the US, Bernie Sanders, who is a socialist and who rejects the government of our founders and rather have Karl Marx as the philosopher of choice. Particulars – The details of a lawsuit which each party needs to know in order to bring or defend a claim. Often lawyers will ask a court to order the other party to provide particulars. For civil trials (private disputes between parties) there are six jury members. In these cases, the jury must decide which party is at fault. A lot of people underestimate just how complex the law is. Lawyers can’t just rely on the knowledge that they picked up in law school. They need to be intimately familiar with the nuances of the type of law that they practice. It was the first play written by an African-American woman and produced on Broadway. It won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award making Hansberry the youngest and first African American to receive the Award.
I have had people tell me that just because every implementation of Socialism has produced horrors beyond human imaginationâ€”suffering, murder, starvation, oppressionâ€”that is just because the wrong guys were in charge. I say that is nonsense. Socialism by its very nature attracts those very guys who want totalitarian power. I agree with your comments on Iran. This drumbeat for war seems designed to alibi a forthcoming Israeli “pre-emptive” attack, but the Obama regime is clearly conflicted. Iran has something like 73 million people, and the entire MidEast-Near East is basically now a political tinderbox. The situation in Iraq and Afghanistan is clearly crumbling, and now there’s this huge push for America to launch war with Iran and Syria as well. 2.9 This is the modern concept of the purpose of the common law adversarial trial. The state’s role in prosecuting crime, and the related purposes of the criminal trial, have not always been understood this way. First, there are reasons to doubt the strength of the relationship between democratization and war. Other quantitative studies challenge the statistical significance of Mansfield and Snyder’s results, suggest that there is an even stronger connection between movements toward autocracy and the onset of war, find that it is actually unstable transitions and reversals of democratization that increase the probability of war, and argue that democratization diminishes the likelihood of militarized international disputes. 115 In particular, autocracies are likely to exploit nationalism and manipulate public opinion to launch diversionary wars-the same causal mechanisms that Mansfield and Snyder claim are at work in democratizing states. Mansfield and Snyder themselves point out that “reversals of democratization are nearly as risky as democratization itself,” thereby bolstering the case for assisting the consolidation of new democracies. 116 In addition, very few of the most recent additions to the ranks of democracies have engaged in wars. In Central and Eastern Europe, for example, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, and Slovenia have avoided major internal and external conflicts. Of these countries, only Slovenia was involved in brief series of military skirmishes with Serbia. 117 Russia has been involved in a number of small wars on or near its borders, but so far it has undergone a dramatic transition toward democracy without becoming very warlike. 118 There is little evidence of international war in Latin America, which also has witnessed a large-scale transition to democracy in recent years. Countries such as Mongolia and South Africa appear to have made the transition to democracy without going to war. The new democracies plagued by the most violence, including some former Soviet republics and the republics of the former Yugoslavia, are those that are the least democratic and may not qualify as democracies at all.
1.3.13 Local law books and journal articles on important areas have also contributed to the burgeoning common law in Singapore. The contribution to the Singapore jurisprudence has been catalysed by the establishment of Academy Publishing in 2007 under the auspices of the Singapore Academy of Law. Academy Publishing aims to provide an additional publication channel for Singapore legal scholarship and to make such publications affordable. It also seeks to disseminate Singapore’s laws to a wider audience beyond Singapore. Majority rule is present in Democracy. While in Socialism, Majority Rule is not present. Second, only Congress can enact or repeal a federal criminal law. The Bicameralism and Presentment Clauses of Article I of the Constitution define the process by which the federal government can enact a law. Salmond, a well known jurist defined law as the command of sovereignâ€. The command of sovereign would mean the ones incorporated in the Constitution and laws made thereunder to regulate government and its instrumentality for protection of the rights, properties, and dignities of the citizens on one hand, and sovereignty and integrity of the nation on the other hand. The command does not mean the arbitrary, whimsical and colourable exercise of the power by the people in the power contrary to law. Now the term discretionâ€ has been narrowed down and construed to exercise an option between two opinions which has been provided by law. No an unknown decision can be adopted. If I had written this Hub prior to the 2012 Inaugural Presidential address, this Hub would be affected and influenced and affected by the speech below. But I wrote it out of the political trends that were affecting the American ‘credo’ adversely, as noted by Obama. Ancient Athenians didn’t have anyone to represent them in government; instead, everyone had a voiceâ€”literally. Debates on topics of governance were held publicly in what was referred to as The Athenian Assembly , and every male Athenian citizen had individual voting rights. Not only that, but qualified citizens were given time off of work and a stipend to help make sure every voice was heard! Through the Assembly, every voice could weigh in on every issue, and all laws and rules of governance were established based on majority rule. Democratic socialism means democratic ownership over the economy. Bourdieu took the concept of capital, applied originally to the study of economics, and theorized that other kinds of capital where also distributed unevenly among individuals in any social field, determining the ability of individuals to survive in those social fields (Bourdieu 1989:14 and 2013). These kinds of capital were social and cultural capital: social capital being the social connections an individual can utilize when needed; and cultural capital being the advantages (or disadvantages) deferred on the upper classes (or lower classes) by merit of the dispositions and tastes that affirm their social positions (1984:69). Any kind of capital that was not economic, social, or cultural capital Bourdieu called symbolic capital (Wacquant 2006:7). Symbolic capital can be seen as advantages conferred on individuals who have achieved some sort of prestige, fame, elected position, award, or some other attribute of excellenceâ€ which enhances their social positions in some way (Bourdieu 1984:66).
