Counting Victims And Multiplying Counts: Business Robbery, Faux Victims, And Draconian Punishment, Jennifer Allison, Harry Caldwell 2009 Pepperdine University

Counting Victims And Multiplying Counts: Business Robbery, Faux Victims, And Draconian Punishment, Jennifer Allison, Harry Caldwell

Jennifer Allison

This Article offers a 50-state survey of robbery statutes, specifically examining the charging and sentencing regimes for the robbery of a business during which multiple people, including employees and customers, are threatened. It begins by presenting a historical overview of the crime of robbery, focusing specifically on the robbery of a business. Then, the survey results are described, and specific problems related to multiplicity of punishment are discussed. Finally, a reasonable and ideal model of business robbery jurisprudence is offered - one that focuses on punishing the defendant proportionally to the severity of the crime committed, and that furthers the intention ...

Civilization And The Evolution Of Short Sighted Agents, Atin Basu Choudhary, Troy Siemers, Sam Allen 2009 Virginia Military Institute

Civilization And The Evolution Of Short Sighted Agents, Atin Basu Choudhary, Troy Siemers, Sam Allen

Atin Basu Choudhary

We model an assurance game played within a population with two types of individuals -- short-sighted and foresighted. Foresighted people have a lower discount rate than short sighted people. These phenotypes interact with each other. We define the persistent interaction of foresighted people with other foresighted people as a critical element of civilization while the interaction of short sighted people with other short sighted people as critical to the failure of civilization. We show that whether the short sighted phenotype will be an evolutionary stable strategy (and thus lead to the collapse of civilization) depends on the initial proportion of short ...

Making New World Publics: Botanical Studies In Sixteenth-Century Europe, Edward Test 2009 Boise State University

Making New World Publics: Botanical Studies In Sixteenth-Century Europe, Edward Test

Mac Test

When Christopher Marlowe's Faustus sells his soul to the devil in exchange for all the knowledge in the world, he requests three books from Mephaestophilis: one on incantations, a second on new astronomy, and a third "wherein [he] might see all plants, herbs and trees that grow upon the earth" . Evident in this last request is the importance of earth's botanical cornucopia to early modern Europe, a knowledge base that expanded exponentially with the encounter, exploration, and merchandising of the Americas.

Shakila Yacob And Nicholas White, ‘The “Unfinished Business” Of Malaysia’S Decolonisation: The Origins Of The Guthrie Dawn Raid’, Shakila Yacob 2009 University of Malaya

Shakila Yacob And Nicholas White, ‘The “Unfinished Business” Of Malaysia’S Decolonisation: The Origins Of The Guthrie Dawn Raid’, Shakila Yacob

Shakila Yacob

In a ‘dawn raid’ on the London Stock Exchange on 7 September 1981, the premiere British rubber and oil palm conglomerate in Malaysia, the Guthrie Corporation Limited, was taken into local control in less than four hours. Thiswas the most dramatic Malaysian acquisition of a foreign company during the restructuring of the country’s post-colonial economy during the 1970s and 1980s, and the Guthrie Dawn Raid remains a celebrated but, at the same time, contested juncture in contemporary Malaysian memory. Drawing upon a variety of sources—including original interviews and correspondence with key participants in, and observers of, the Guthrie ...

Vampire Island, Anastasia Tsaliki

Anastasia Tsaliki

Participation in this documentary directed by Julian Thomas and produced by Electric Sky for History Channel International.

"The legend of blood sucking vampires has captured peoples’ imagination for generations. Mysterious tales of the undead rising from their coffins to terrorise the living and drain their blood are the stuff of horror movies and novels. But a crack team of archaeologists and forensic scientists have uncovered hard evidence for the existence of the legend – a legend that continues to haunt communities in the present day…"

Catholic Bible Study Program: Old And New Testaments Concluded: The Word In The Hellenistic World Student Workbook, Brian Schmisek, Angelo Giuliano, Judith Hubert, Dorothy Jonaitis

Brian Schmisek

Year four examines God's word as it resonates in the Hellenistic culture that dominated the Mediterranean world from the death of Alexander the Great in 323 BC. Most of the books studied this year attempt to cope with this new situation. Students will study the Old Testament wisdom literature, then a variety of post exilic Jewish writings (including the deuterocanonical books), and finally the Gospel According to Matthew, the New Testament letters not studied in second year, and Hebrews.

Stuntman Mike, Simulazione E Sadismo In 'A Prova Di Morte' [Traduzione A Cura Di Gemma Lanzo], Aaron Anderson

Aaron C. Anderson

Estratto dal testo: "In 'A prova di morte' (2007) di Quentin Tarantino ci sono quattro personaggi femminili, quattro morti cruenti, quattro brevi sequenze e ancora, svariati e rapidi primi piani di ragazze che ballano su una canzone alla radio, una veloce soggettiva dal sedile anteriore della macchina di una ragazza. Stuntman Mike (Kurt Russell) accende i fari della sua auto, vediamo a ralenti lo scontro automobilistico, il corpo delle vittime di Mike che si squarciano in ripetute collisioni e poi metallo, gomma, ossa e carne. In un istante il corpo umano si unisce forzatamente alla tecnologia ed il piacere si ...

Finding Pleasure In Plebeian Lives, Benjamin Heller 2009 Selected Works

Finding Pleasure In Plebeian Lives, Benjamin Heller

Benjamin Heller

This paper explores some of the motivations plebeian Londoners expressed when pursuing recreational activities and sociability. Falling into two parts, the paper first offers insights into ways middling and laboring Londoners understood the topography of leisure in the metropolis. I then discuss how social relationships developed and ways that the significance of connections formed while pursuing amusement were assessed.
