Discussion of the Law

What is the purpose of the law? Why do we need lawyers? Is there a better system available to society? Has the practice of law been corrupted by the greed motive? These are all vitally important questions that need to be discussed in a frank and open manner. The accessibility of an internet website makes it the perfect tool for hosting such a free ranging discussion on aspects of the law.

What is the Purpose of the Law?

“Sovereignty itself is, of course, not subject to law, for it is the author and source of law; but in our system, while sovereign powers are delegated to the agencies of government, sovereignty itself remains with the people, by whom and for whom all government exists and acts.”
[Yick Wo v. Hopkins, 118 U.S. 356; 6 S.Ct. 1064 (1886)]

The sovereign makes the law in order to protect his, her or their “life liberty and property”. The mechanism for upholding the body of rules known as the law is first the police force. Since part of the law is the right to a trial, lawyers and legal professionals become involved in the law process.

The notion of sovereignty varies from country to country. In England the monarch is the sovereign. In the USA, following the model handed down from the French Revolution ‘the people’ are the sovereign.

Under the American system ‘the people’ therefore have the right to change the law. And yet their elected representatives often seem reluctant to enact the changes that many of the people want. A classic example of this is the legalization of marijuana. The people of California clearly want this but their sovereignty is undermined by the overriding claim of sovereignty held by the federal government.

Why do we need lawyers?

Essentially lawyers are a product of the inaccuracy of language. As more words are used the more there is room for interpretation. Words are a way of modeling reality. The model is not reality. Thus, lawyers are needed to find suitable interpretations for the words of the law.

Secondly, the constitution upholds the right for a man to defend himself if accused by the law. The law is complicated and this right requires lawyers. In civil law the right for redress against a perceived wrong also requires the services of a lawyer.

Finally, as a result of the slippery nature of language, lawyers are needed to write agreements that cannot be easily broken.

Therefore, lawyers are experts in the details of the law as well as the language of the law. The details naturally include the important body of examples set out in precedence.

Is there a better system available to society?

Some countries use trial by jury; in others judges decide the verdict of guilty or not guilty. Either way lawyers are used to expound the opposing points of view of the plaintiff and the defendant. Should we scrap the system of lawyers and let people directly plead their case to a judge? As in the case of King Solomon, a wise man could see clearly to the heart of the matter and reach a just decision, mete out justice.

People are dismayed with the ‘tricks’ lawyers use such as pleading that technical proceedings were not followed correctly. It is commonly perceived that those with lots of money can retain the services of lawyers who are adept at throwing up smokescreens of words by which they can make ‘black’ become ‘white’.

There are clearly problems with the legal system. They might, however, reflect inequalities and problems in society rather than in the theory of the law.

Has the practice of law been corrupted by the greed motive?

The last point naturally leads on to the relationship in America between money and the law. People can become rich from using the law in the USA, more so than in any other country. Not only can some lawyers command high fees for their services but they can also take a commission for damages they recover.

The culture of ‘ambulance chasing’ is seen by many foreign observers as being endemic in the USA. This does seem to be an unfortunate side effect of the sovereign right to pursue a grievance through the legal system. Other countries have basically the same legal system as the USA with little litigation. One definitely has to question the motives of many plaintiffs. Greed undoubtedly is behind many court cases. However, sometimes it is the desire to clear ones name, or the desire to challenge the law itself. Again, we have to look not at the law but at the society that uses the law in cynical and greedy ways.

These are just notes to get the ball rolling. www.nalpexchange.org is about an exchange of opinions connected to the law. It is often quoted that the future is a foreign country; well the law is also a foreign country. This website intends to explore the law in its widest sense and in its most far reaching applications and influences in order to make the law less foreign to us.

Internet Licensing Laws – UK

Featured

The problem with many of our laws relating to licensing and copyrights, is that most of them were developed long before the introduction of the internet. Take for example the laws that govern the requirements of TV licences in the UK.    At the moment you can actually watch the lots of UK TV channels online without needing a TV license.  Now a few years ago that would have been unlikely to tempt many people from abandoning their TVs to computers.  But nowadays the line between TVs and computers is very blurred – we have internet enabled TV sets, super fast broadband and a myriad of devices able to store TV channels.

Suddenly the requirement of an expensive  TV license doesn’t seem so necessary.  Clearly there is confusion in the market and the BBC Trust is mooting changes to clarify the situation (and obviously force more to buy a license).   A BBC spokesman said –

Legislative change is likely to be required in order to reflect technology changes in the licence fee regulations,”

One of the biggest loopholes is the fact that if you don’t watch the shows live then you don’t need the license.  So presumably you could set your TV or media device to download or store the show and watch a few minutes later.  The license costs about £142 or about $250 so it’s a significant expense that can be avoided each year.

There are other confusions experienced across the planet.  Most media channels block access to their content outside their countries borders.  Hulu is only available in the US, M6 Replay only in France and the BBC technically in the United Kingdom.  Of course these restrictions are frequently bypassed online – there are loads of internet sites explaining how you can watch anything online.  This one for instance shows how to watch BBC Iplayer – http://www.proxyusa.com/bbciplayerabroad2012.   Are these methods illegal – well probably not with current legislation but of course there are lots of legislation pending in the US and across the world that might change this situation.

IN other countries the legislation is different of course, which is the huge problem for people attempting to regulate the internet.  Whether you need to access BBC Iplayer in the UK or ABC Iview, the problem is still the same – your IP address, wherever you are defines what you see.

There’s one thing for sure if you want to specialize in a fast developing and probably controversial area of law – the media might very well be for you.

Dating Site – PoF Fined under Anti-Spam Legislation

The CRTC says the fine was imposed after complaints alleged PlentyOfFish Media Inc. sent e-mails that didn’t have a clearly labelled or easy-to-use unsubscribe alternative.

The apparent violations happened between July 1 and Oct. 8 of last year.

Markus Frind in Vancouver created PlentyOfFish 12 years ago and now has more than one hundred million users around the world. The service sends its users occasional e-mails which highlight people who have similar interests and notify them of new messages from fellow users. The majority of them are sent from a central mail server based of unknown location but with a US IP address.

Delete-Plentyoffish-account

After they notified PlentyOfFish Media of the investigation, regulators say, the firm upgraded its unsubscribe procedure to obey the laws.

The dating website has additionally agreed to develop a compliance plan, including training for the staff and changes to match with the anti spam requirements.

“This case is a significant reminder to companies that they have to review their unsubscribe mechanics to ensure they’re clearly and conspicuously set out as well as may be readily performed,” said main compliance and enforcement officer Manon Bombardier in a release.

Before this month, the CRTC imposed the primary monetary punishment under the anti-spam law, which came into effect.

The organization has until the CRTC’s ruling to be contested by early April.

The New Age Of Economy

economyIt’s always fun when we hear about a developing economy. As a normal citizen, you would probably say that the economics, is in a new era of development. This year – is a time of expanding possessions, expanding business, expanding debt and expanding waistlines. This is also a time of fantastic and new innovation. If you are a gadget person, you would probably say that you are now living in a developing state. The economy is on its new stage of development. As you can see, US become one of the most renowned states as being a well-developed state. Economics in the US become trending these days. It is inside the news as being one of the wealthiest states when it comes on its economy. There were some suggestions blowing in the wind of the deviations to come. There are small businesses that were tightening their belts, home prices were down, home foreclosures were up, and a lot of baby boomers were beginning to experience health issues. When it comes on expansion, it becomes superfluous and carried a price. Wealth was now redefined through innovative economic times. An example of this is the EU business karnevalsshoppen, which is behind the project tyrolerudklaedning.dk, a website with focus on tyroler kostumer, tyrolertøj and oktoberfest kostumer. 2 years ago they couldn’t lend the money for the project anywhere. Today almost every bank in the area, are asking if they want to borrow money to get the project going.. Tyrolerudklaedning isn’t the only company who has experienced this. Actually a lot of small companies that was having problems getting a loan, a few years ago, are now having a much easier time finding money for their various projects.

We are already aware that United States of America is the world’s biggest national economy. Since from the late 19th century, US has been a leader in technological innovation and scientific research. Phone becomes an important tool when it comes on the mode of communication. When Alexander Graham Bell manifest for the telephone, the economy in the US had changed a lot. A lot of businesses in United States developed because they are able to have increase customers. Direct contact to customers provides the possibility of acquiring more and more customers and this is because of telephone. People can easily contact and make some transactions through it. Since we love entertainment, we usually spend time on watching movie. Way back from the past, people use phonograph to watch movie. Phonograph was developed by Thomas Edison and it is the first long-lasting bulb which is used as movie camera.

Try to see how the economy in the US developed. They have developed different tools. The high frequency power transmission to be used in radio and AC induction motor were also pioneered by Nikola Tesla. These were really a big contribution to the economy. With a lot of invention in United States, it clearly explains how their economy developed. When you study on the economy in the US today, you would find out they are really progressing. America has also highest average household income. If you are going to compare it into other states, you would be amazed on how it turned out like that. United States is the world’s largest manufacturer and leads the world in airplane manufacturing. The manufacturing sector of Unites States had experienced before of substantial job losses but has easily recovered. Even though United States agriculture compromises less than 2% of the economy, it is still a net exporter of food. If you get alarmed on how US have a developing economy, then you can read lots of sources online.

US Recovery Won’t Boost Global Growth

Even though the US market is growing more firmly compared to the International Monetary Fund anticipated in last October’s World Economic Outlook, that acceleration is not going to suffice to improve international economic growth.

Instead, the pickup in the United States emphasizes the undeniable fact that we have been within an age of economic bundles that are divergent, although some boats being lifted by the tide but leaving the rust pails put the underside.

statue-of-liberty-267948_640
Faced with that prospect, Europe and Japan are embarking on substantial monetary policy experiments, fuelling discussion of international “money wars”. To say that isn’t to deny the extent or value of the restoration that is based on American growth. But the increases to the economies in the rest of the planet from other areas shouldn’t be overestimated.

That change is portion of a broader tendency. From 1986 to 2000, as the planet market experienced a huge process each 1 per cent escalation in world GDP was correlated using better rise ensuring that commerce spread growth globally.

But that multiplier (which economists refer to as the “commerce elasticity”) has dropped to around 1.3, helping to clarify why markets go less closely in measure than they formerly did.   Just check out the news in these countries, you can use this tool to access national broadcasters from the USA and Europe like NBC, BBC, ABC etc.

In once, the decrease in the responsiveness of commerce to increase continues to be particularly marked in America, using the commerce elasticity dropping from almost 4 to of the American market.

The result will be to significantly muffle the direct spillover to the planet in general from a more powerful US restoration.  The prognosis for worldwide increase thus depends more heavily on each area’s own attempts — but the prospects are scarcely not worry in the heart as well as in its periphery of the planet market.

Teaching Guitar to Students Online

There is a huge market for students wanting to learn to play guitar and tutors are starting to meet the demand with online video courses and lessons designed to teach playing levels from beginners to advanced. This is an area that is steadily growing and has great potential for growing a persona service business in this line of teaching.

Of course there are already several well established tutoring programs already available online that provide full video and theory course material. But expert tuition is greatly sought after meaning there is plenty of room for more.

So what does creating such a tutoring program entail?

For starters, it is important the creator of the program has detailed specialized knowledge in the field of teaching and of music with particular emphasis on playing the guitar. The program of course could be created by a non-musician and even someone with no teaching skills in which case a qualified person would have to be enlisted to present the video tutorials and provide the necessary material for students.

Many entrepreneurs have created hugely successful businesses in areas they have no personal expertise by bringing on board the necessary people with the right skills and experience to make them work. The same goes for teaching programs whatever the field happens to be.

In the field of online guitar lessons, to make the program sell and become popular with musicians would take a well respected expert guitar player and teacher to present the course material on video. Better still would be to bring on board a popular guitarist that has enjoyed success in the music business and a name that many would know straight away.

Of course getting hold of the right person can be difficult and costly depending on the level of popularity and respect the person holds in their field. However, no business should ever be limited by maybe’s and what if’s and with the right determination and connections, a clever business person could obtain the services of a high profile player to present the material while also using session musicians to assist in providing the technical demonstration material.

Succeeding in this particular business model can be challenging but for the right person with the right attitude and ability, anything is possible. Teaching new and experienced guitarists alike can be highly rewarding especially when the business grows through word of mouth recommendations from students that were highly impressed with the course and learned a lot from it in relation to the price they paid for it.

More information on becoming a guitar teacher can be found here: Musicians Institute

Teaching goes more and more online

Have you noticed that there are hundreds of different websites where you can take various courses and learn new skills? It coveres everthing from law, how to sew your own tyroler kostume to dancing lessions. You can find online classes for just about anything these days.

Here is an example of a place offering online lessions for money  – http://www.galehusetagf.dk/oktoberfest-tyroler-kostumer/

But is this a good thing or are we shifting to much of the focus from traditional learning to online classes? This is a hard question to answer. Some people don’t do well when sitting together with many other people, they would often gain much more from just sitting alone in front of the computer and learn the stuff without anyone to bother them. These people would learn more with an online teacher instead of sitting in a classroom. Other people are having a hard time concentration unless they are in a group with other people and taking online classes would only make things harder for them.

The quality of these online lessions varie quite a bit. I recently took 2 different classes online, one was a baking class, where you learn to make good tasting Italien bread (a really good class). The other was a sewing class, where we had to sew our own Tyroler kostume for the upcomming Oktoberfest. The first class was actually really good, because it was easy to see how the teacher did it and to follow her recipes. The other class, being a practical class was a bit harder. Sewing Tyroler Kostumer without any real help was actually pretty hard. Of course I could see what the teacher did on the screen, but as soon as something went wrong (and it does quite often in sewing), then it was hard to get the proper help. I guess what I am saying is that some subjects would work really well when it comes to online teaching, other stuff would be best suitet for offline lessons. Personally I think that it’s great that we have both options. I wouldn’t want to take all my classes over the Internet, but I don’t like sitting with 20 people most of the day either. For me the perfect solution would be something like 5 hours in school, and 3 hours with online classes.

Next month I have already planned 3 new online lessions. One is another practical lession, a little bit similar to the one where we had to sew a Tyroler Kostume. The other one is a language class called Italian for beginners (yes, just like the movie) and the final class is a cookie baking class, which will come in handy for christmas.So no regular classes in the traditional classroom style for me this time, but that doesn’t mean that I won’t go back to using those in the next year.

One thing is certain though, we are going to see many more different kinds of online teaching and it will be something that gets more and more integrated into our school system in the future.

Home Education – Is it Really an Alternative?

Multiple varying approaches regarding the way home education ought to be performed are out there. You can find various theories and methods, some of which we’ll be discussing in this article. In the final analysis, however, it’s up to you to decide what techniques will work best with your kids. Sometimes you may want to combine two or more approaches, and come up with a home schooling method of your own.

When you start home schooling, you must set up a schedule. Every family has a routine they normally go through, so that will need to be taken into consideration once the schedule is made out for the home schooling. It is a good idea to be as consistent as possible to the schedule you set up. It can be tempting when home schooling to be casual about time and schedules, since there’s no one supervising you and you can be a little flexible. To make sure your children are able to keep focused, it is important that you have a consistent schedule for individual subjects. It is necessary to have a schedule in place, even if it is changed over time.

Home schooling your kids can be very rewarding for both you and your children; you can provide some things that public schools are unable to. Not only will your children be able to see life in reality, but will also be able to experience places and people in reality. You have the opportunity to give your child a look at the real world when you decide to home school them; instead of sending them off to school where you know little about the curriculum. These lessons will be more defining to you child. Depending on where you live and what you do on a daily basis, will certainly have an impact on what sort or experiences your child may or may not be able to take part in.

There is a lot more flexibility of course than schools and professional teachers are allowed. You can focus on different subjects and use methods which are not practical in a classroom environment for instance. My friend uses the internet a lot to teach her two girls, they are both learning French and watch a lot of French TV online to help. It’s actually quite easy to if you change IP address you can access most of the French and French Canadian TV stations online.

To have an umbrella organization oversee the whole process is what a lot of parents find as the best approach of home schooling. If home schooling is a new experience, this can work well for you. This works really well because your children are at home, you are doing the teaching, and all of the educational materials, subjects and curriculum are supplied by the umbrella organization. If you’re unsure of how to get started or not confident in your ability to create your own curriculum, this may be a solution worth looking into. On the other hand, if you want the maximum amount of independence, the umbrella organization is probably not your best bet. There will be more ways for it to be done, once home schooling becomes more popular. There are other people doing home schooling also, and their experiences might help you a lot, if you will listen. However, when it comes down to it, you should do what you think is best for your own children.

Important Legal Concepts About Professional Joint Ventures

Joint ventures are an exciting and lucrative way to earn nice profits for your online business. Despite their potential, only a small minority of internet marketers take the initiative and seek out joint ventures. No one has to do this, but it’s definitely a way to take an existing business to another level. You can gain access to skills, investment capital or other resources that you might not have on your own. Leverage is an essential principle in the business world, allowing you to benefit from another business’s resources. The fact is, anyone can learn to manage JVs, even if you’ve never created one before.

The success you reach with your joint venture is also going to depend quite a lot on the primary rules of etiquette. Along with being completely professional, you should be polite and friendly as well. Try hard to create a positive impression as best you can but you aren’t in business with them to be friends. Be friendly as much as you can, or as it is called in business: be cordial to your coworkers. Never come across like you are mistrustful of them, and people will tend to trust you when you give them the same courtesy.

It is imperative that you find a way to create a positive business relationship with your fellow JVers. Communicate with them online and promptly, if you’re in a country where there are restrictions then learn how to change ip address online so that you can use tools like Skype. It’s important to do this so that you’ll have an easier time setting up joint ventures in the future. Matching potential partners to your level of contribution is what you can do when looking for JVs. A major corporation, for instance, will probably not want to work with a solo marketer or a small business. Another example would be a midsized business ignoring a smaller business.

This is just the hard facts of the business world and you have to accept it. Serious money can still be made through IM, even though businesses operate like this. Gaining interest from a larger potential partner is possible if you can present a killer idea that will make them money. Although most of it is based upon negotiations, JV opportunities to follow some general guidelines.

Before you start contacting people about your JV, make sure you’re fully prepared. The larger the company, the more challenging it will be of course. Sending emails to other solo entrepreneurs is quite an easy task. With a larger business, though, you first have to get a list of names so you know who you have to get in touch with. Once you have the people you need, then send all of them your JV proposal. It’s best to arrange it so all of them receive your proposal together. Don’t be afraid to do some research, either online or by phone, if you aren’t sure who to approach at the company. You see the results of joint ventures every single day and multiple times. Each business has something to offer. They are linked by what they do together. What is happening is that both businesses promote each other in a positive way. So even if you have a one-person IM marketing business, invest in the tools like these – Buy VPN online, make the right contacts and you can still make this work.

Did the NSA Monitor Your Data?

Over a four year period, the US National Security Agency (NSA) intercepted the online accounts of various foreigners in a highly targeted investigation. Except it wasn’t that targeted at all and an investigation by the Washington Post has suggested that for every one legitimate target the data of 9 innocent individuals was swept up at the same time. These people were both Americans and non-Americans, there was little specific details that could tie these people together, it looks like just random people who got swept up in the investigation.

The surveillance files created consisted of some fairly detailed information, there were names, email addresses and full transcripts of messages for example. The investigation was a success including information about double agents, secret nuclear projects and the identities of some foreign hackers who had broken into US computer networks (although that could mean anything!). However the 90% who were not targeted had no protection against this federal snooping unless they had encrypted their communication using some VPN software.

It could be said that the results justified the intrusions into innocent internet user’s privacy. The tracking is said to have resulted into the capture of a Pakistan bomb maker in 2011,who is suspected to be involved in the Bali 2002 bombing. There were other examples apparently how the report was asked to withold those on the request of the CIA as they may compromise ongoing investigations.

So how many people were affected who were not supposed to be targeted were involved? Well the number is estimated by the Washington Post at approximately 10,000 individuals all who had their data catalogued and recorded. These were real people with real stories and the information read included ‘stories of love and heartbreak, illicit sexual liaisons, mental health issues, political and religious conversions, financial anxieties and disappointed hopes.’

In addition to this, more than 5000 personal photos and pictures were collected. These are of course what we know about, remember this information was only revealed because Edward Snowden provided the Washington Post with the details. This is likely only one of many thousands of investigations taking place across the planet by the NSA and a variety of other National Security Agencies in other countries.

It’s worth thinking about doing something to protect your privacy unless you fancy your personal online details appearing in agency catalogues across the internet. The cost of a simple high speed VPN won’t make you 100% safe from the security agencies, but will stop your data being harvested and appearing there by mistake. These 10,000 people included in the leaked document are likely to be the tip of the iceberg, the wide spread network tapping is designed to harvest the data from millions of transactions so it’s highly likely the real figure is many times higher.

Young Lawyers Recruited for Military Service in 2014

Young lawyers are increasingly being recruited for US military service.  In addition tot he basic pay outlined in this 2014 military pay chart, lawyers are entitled to many lucrative bonuses.

No matter who you are, it is very likely that an important element to a job would be getting compensated for the work that you are doing. While this is a common interest that almost all humans experience, there is often no system put in place in order to ensure that people are getting what they deserve when it comes to the amount of money reflected in their pay. In fact, this is the reason why people often let their feelings about one another get into the way of the work that needs to be done. The purpose of military pay chart would be to ensure that each person has a specific role within the organization and something that they contribute which matters to the overall success of a project. Also, they are able to determine how those skills benefit them when compared to others that are serving at the moment. 

Reading the military pay chart would allow you to quickly discover the existence of things such as special duty pay, this would be additional compensation that is available when the person serving is required to take on additional risks that would be above and beyond what is normally expected in the role. The existence of this pay ensures that they feel encored when it comes to what they are bringing to the table. Everyone likes to feel appreciated and being able to make more money for the special skills that you have is a great way for the military to retain the best.

Is Chinese Teaching Really the Model to Follow?

For people tasked with improving educational standards, pointing at China is often a very popular choice. There’s no doubt that in some measures that Chinese teaching methods are extremely successful. Chinese schools are full of well behaved, focused and motivated children studying up to 10 hours a day from a very young age. If you test something like math’s ability it’s likely a Chinese youngster will be far ahead of most western children of the same age.

But for many people, the ‘Chinese’ approach is not necessarily the best way to educate children. For instance, the method is very much based on rote learning, facts, figures and methods are memorized. Repetition and discipline pay an important role, where information is literally forced into the children. Even with the long school hours, children often have extra tuition in order to cope with the highly competitive University exam called the Gaokao.

It is important to remember that the gaokao is primarily a test of memory. But it’s an important test that will decide a child’s academic and professional trajectory through their life. Chinese children take these sort of tests from a very young age and all the teaching is designed around this memorizing facts and figures, it’s hardly surprising that Chinese children score very well in these sorts of environments.

The problem is that although in these sort of tests and assessments, Chinese children rate extremely highly – it comes at a price. There is a growing belief that the Chinese system is too extreme, children have loads of technical knowledge but often lack the ability to apply it. There is also a lack of imagination and interaction in Chinese school rooms.

For example one teacher said that Chinese children will write down anything you say and memorize it. It doesn’t matter what it is, even if it’s plainly ridiculous the children won’t question but merely remember it. There are clearly facets of a Chinese education that are worth emulating but as an overall educational experience it’s lacking in many areas too. The Chinese system encourages conformity and discipline, it doesn’t create great thinkers and visionaries – which is often what a country like China sorely needs. It’s not surprising really China tries to control every aspect of it’s citizens life, from politics to the internet. However even this control is starting to change, Chinese people frequently use vpns and proxies to bypass internet filters, choosing to watch things like the BBC like this video rather than State TV.

The parents and teachers in China realise that they need to instill more imagination in their children so often this is encouraged. Many parents routinely encourage their children to pick up English language skills over the internet and online media sites too – this video is an example of how they emulate filtering technqiues used in the USA to watch the BBC too – more information here.

The Youth Are The Hope Of The Nation

We will always feel heartache once we saw many victims of crimes who are innocent people. They don’t have any mistake or any violations done into the society but they are the one who died. The much said truth is that, they can’t have the justice they deserved to have because they are less people. As we can see, many innocents and victims are jailed. In fact, they don’t do the crime but they are the ones who are inside the jail paying the crimes they don’t even commit. The reason is that, the less people don’t have any voice and power to prove their innocence. They don’t have the money to fight their right and themselves. The thing part is that, those who are the criminals are roaming around the city freely. So, we must have to show sympathy and even do something just to make this straight. The foolish truth that money can buy anything can actually be stopped in our own hands most especially by the youth. The youth can be the hope of the nation. The Perl had explained how we can have a developed, good law and society.  

It is a big achievement to have a developing society. This means that the leaders are doing part and responsibilities. They sit on their positions as being the leaders and indeed do their responsibilities to serve the society. Implementing such law has its main purpose and reason and that is to have a better society. Perl designed to have a healthy and enhanced society. The youth are the ones who will be the future leaders and they must open their eyes with this fact. Some people laugh on the insight that youth are the hope of the nation. This is because they only have limited minds. The present leaders have been on their youthful days and this means that they can be a good leader in the future. The law and society must be handled well by good and intelligent leaders. If you take time to read about the law implemented by the leaders to be followed and respected by the society, you will understand how youth becomes the hope of the nation.

There are only a few who have realized how law and society connected to each other. Of course, the law is implemented for the society. The society must respect and follow the law to have a good and developing nation. Perl presented many times that the youth can be good leaders. It is better to have a young leader and intelligent one who have a good heart for the people. Once a leader has a good heart to the nation, this means that we can have a better society. This can now be a good start. Perl explained broadly about how the youth becomes the hope of the nation. Once the youth becomes educated and understand their part in the society, they are not just good people but good leaders as well. The society is in thirst of peace and the youth are the ones who can change this.

More Young Lawyers Wanted for Military Service

While the men and women in the US military do not risk their lives for money, they do need to be compensated fairly.  For this reason, a military pay chart is released every year.  This chart outlines the basic pay and allowances that military staff are entitled to in the given year.

 

In order to understand the chart, readers must understand the following codes:

 

E –  Enlisted.  These soldiers are the front line staff during military operations.

 

W –  Warrant Officers are people who specialize in a particular defense function.

 

O –  Commissioned officers are the highest ranking personnel.  A university degree is required for this position.

 

 

O stands for Commissioned Officers – in ascending order of rank. 

 

Both rank and length of service effect’s a soldier’s pay.  Aside from pay, 2014 military pay chart outlines a number of special allowances.  These payments vary depending on what function the officer performs.  For instance, people who work in submarines get additional compensation.

 

Every officer is entitled to a few basic allowances.  These allowances are for housing, family separation, clothing and subsistence.

 

When push comes to shove, people do not sign up for the military because the pay is good.  They join because they want to serve their country and do something remarkable with their lives.  However, being well-paid is a perk.  As most officers do not have housing and food expenses, they can save a large amount of money while they are in service.  This will help their family considerably in the future.

Florange Law is Implemented in France

There is a new law that was implemented in France last month that is being called Florange Law. The name comes from a town in North East France which was the home of the ArcelorMittal SA steelworks() which was due to close during Francois Hollande’s presidential campaign.

It’s interesting as it seems to contradict the pledge of Hollande to be more business friendly. As an industrial policy it is bound to draw huge debate from each side of the employment fence.

Basically the law will oblige the head of any business with over 1000 employees, must spend at least 3 months looking for a buyer before they are allowed to close any plant. If they don’t do so then the penalties are steep, a fine equal to 28,000 Euros for each job lost up to a cap of 2% of annual revenue.

The steelworks in question did actually close but it became a very important factor in the election of the President who made a speech to the workers at the time. This law is the fulfillment of his promise in that speech.

Trade Unions in France have been complaining that it is not sufficient to help protect the jobs of French workers who are under threat. They want much stronger incentives for companies to protect French jobs and industries.

Businessmen suggest that it is likely to do the opposite, further making France a place that large industrialists and entrepreneurs will seek to avoid due to the huge levels of Government intervention and control. Many European countries are seeking to reduce legislation and controls in order to promote business and job creation. It would seem likely that this law will further restrict France’s attraction to European businesses and manufacturers.

You can see some of the debate that this bill has provoked on French media much of which is available online. Some of the best sites like M6 Replay will stream programmes across the internet although if you are outside the country you will need a France proxy in order to access them correctly.

The reason is that like most international media sites, online content is normally restricted to the country it is broadcast in. So hence US media sites are only accessible in the US, UK stuff in Britain and French media is only visible in France and so one. The method used is to look up your IP address when you connect and then check what location you are connecting from. The site then decides whether to allow you access or to redirect you somewhere else. Fortunately if you use an intermediary serve like a proxy or VPN you can normally bypass the restrictions and watch whatever you want, wherever you happen to be.

Some of these services now have huge global coverage, allowing you to switch to hundreds of different countries whenever you need to – this site for instance demonstrates a Japanese proxy
where the user wants to access a Tokyo website which streams radio stations from Japan.

Step Back in Time – Iraq Draft Oppressive Law

There are many countries who have a shocking record of oppressing women and violating their basic human rights – but Iraq is still right up there with the worse. Last month the Iraqi Council of Ministers brought in a new law called the Ja’fari law.

The law has been named after the 6th Shi’ite imam – Ja’far al-Sadiq who founded his own school of law {well Shi’ite version of it). The law has been proposed to deal with various issues that affect women such as marriage, inheritance, divorce and the adoption of children.

The law that currently deals with these issues is called No 188 and dates back to 1959 – it is considered the most protective of women’s rights in Iraq. It stipulates various things like legal age of marriage being 18, restricting rights to polygamy, allowing Muslim males to marry outside the religion without restrictions and that a woman is allowed to disobey her husband if he treats her badly.

Fast forward to the present bill which to be honest looks like they’re heading straight back into the middle ages. The legal age of marriage will be changed to 15 for men and a horrific 9 for females. Although it can actually be even lower with the consent of a guardian! Women must receive permission to leave the marital home, and must supply men with ‘sex’ whenever they want. Husbands are not obligated to financially support any wife who cannot sexually satisfy them – for instance if they’ve married a little girl of nine.

The law has not been passed yet, it is still in draft but there is fortunately some sort of protest that may be able to halt it. Liberal Muslims and scholars have complained and pretested against the law but there are difficulties with even standing up against this sort of dark age legislation. Defenders of the draft have called it ‘Divine Sharia’ insisting it must be ratified – which makes criticizing it difficult for the voices of educated Muslims. Many already risk repercussions and often post online under pseudonyms and using security software like this – watch this video .

Women’s groups and the brave activists have taken to the street to protest though and there is some semblance of political outrage at the sectarian politicians using Islam as an excuse to cover up their corruption and the endemic violation of human rights particularly against women. This law if it comes into force will represent a step back of at least a century for Iraqi women. It is a disgusting and degrading piece of legislation and we hope it never comes to pass.

Law And Society: How The Public Deals With It

When we are going to read some newspapers, magazines and even watch on the televisions about how the public deals with the law and the society, we always hear many changes. Changes are the new law implemented, how the society change and how people deals on the government. It is so much disappointing that there are government don’t do their part and job. They don’t stand as being the leader and don’t use their position properly. When we tackle about the government, it is expected that we can discuss on how they govern the society. Of course, if you are on the position as the leader, you need to be responsible enough to do your job and serve the public. But, we always hear bad news about these government officials who are not doing their responsibilities to serve the public. They only focus on their power as being the leader. They all think that the people should follow whatever they say. The online kostumer concluded that the law must be promulgated for the welfare of the state and must be answering all the public’s needs and rights.

The public’s needs and rights must be protected by the government officials. They are elected and placed on their positions to serve people. Once government officials are placed on their positions, they need to start planning for the development of the society. This comes that they have to promulgate a particular law stating about rules and regulations that must be followed by the people for the better of the society. The law and society should always connect with each other. Whatever rules and regulations listed on the law should always result for the better of the society. Changes are expected in a society once the promulgated law for the better of the nation is being followed. However, online kostumer will provide good benefits when it comes on the society. Most people approve that we have rules in the society to secure people and stay everybody on the same page.

Any promulgated law should be followed by the society and this is for the better. For example, there are rules and regulations implemented like “No smoking”, this sign is very important to be followed by the society. Of course, the government did not out the sign with no reasons. Indeed, there is a big reason why they prohibit the place for that particular bad habit. Being the society, we must all agree on the law declared by the government as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone. The government had their purposes and reasons why they are putting signs. Let us say putting stop signs, if everyone follows to stop, no one gets hurt and this is for safety and protection for the society. The society needs the law for the better. Therefore, the law must be followed and respected to have a well-developed nation. Cooperation is very important when talking about law and society. Once the people follow the law or any rules and regulations, we are sure enough that we have developing society.

Is it Legal to Change Your IP Address?

Can you believe this question? It’s a sad state of affairs when ordinary people think that a simple technical tweak is somehow a criminal act. To keep this post ‘child friendly’ – I’ll restrict my expletive to FFS !!!! Most of us on the internet will know what that means.

So why is the question so incredibly silly but also kind of worrying. The silly bit is, that in many cases you have very little leeway in changing your IP address. Sure you can mess around with your internal IP address, but that’s not terribly important. On a global scale it’s about the same as deciding what sort of computer you use, or what size monitor you sit in front of.

Your IP address is assigned by your ISP, and here’s where the worrying bit comes into play. Why would people worry about changing it anyway? It’s purely because of control, companies, governments and the establishment would prefer we all kept our assigned IP address. It’s used to monitor what we do, log our activities and block what we see based on political or commercial preferences.

The above video is entitled IP address changing software. It’s computer software, with a completely legitimate purpose, internet security. Sure it also stops your government, agencies and corporate giant spying and monitoring you, but it breaks no laws. Seriously if all you do is surf, then the fact that you watched that Victoria Secrets Video seven times is nothing to do with the Government.

Lot’s of Germans Get Warning Letters

It’s happened already in many European countries with some success. The target are people who download porn for free from the internet – by anyone’s estimate a substantial number! But this month, around 30,000 German households who have downloaded specific pornographic movies from the RedTube web site will be getting a rather alarming letter in the mail.

It’s basically a demand for recompense for downloading their pornographic movies without paying for them. The numbers are quite small scale but are still on a par with a similar action that took place in the UK a couple of years ago. The demands are little more than targeted threats against the unfortunate individual who pays the internet charge.

What will happen I suspect is that there will be lots of people who will fight these actions, well at least I hope so. The parents, or even grandparents who are presented with legal threats and demands simply because they pay the ISP fees shouldn’t be held accountable for anyone using their internet connection.

Of course piracy is to be deplored, but I suspect people will eventually take these minor steps to prevent themselves tracked down for such a trivial offence. Watch this video and combine it with your download/torrent/dodgy FTP server technique and you’ll be fine.

Here’s a link – and from the goodness of my heart a video……Seriously use something like this…

It will be an important legal precedent for Europe.
