Fashion, Sexism, And The United States Federal Judiciary, Charles E. Colman Aug 2016

Fashion, Sexism, And The United States Federal Judiciary, Charles E. Colman

Charles Colman

The U.S. federal judiciary has frequently displayed a dismissive attitude toward "fashion," while simultaneously recognizing the great economic importance of clothing. As fashion was, from the formation of the United States until at least the late 1960s, associated primarily with the female sex, while judges during this time period were almost exclusively male, one naturally wonders whether the power dynamics of gender shaped the development of the law pertaining to fashion. There is good reason to believe that this has indeed been the case.

Penal Culture And Hyperincarceration: The Revival Of The Prison, Alex Steel, Chris Cunneen, David Brown, Eileen Baldry, Melanie Schwartz, Mark Brown

David C. Brown

What are the various forces influencing the role of the prison in late modern societies? What changes have there been in penality and use of the prison over the past 40 years that have led to the re-valorization of the prison? Using penal culture as a conceptual and theoretical vehicle, and Australia as a case study, this book analyses international developments in penality and imprisonment. Authored by some of Australia’s leading penal theorists, the book examines the historical and contemporary influences on the use of the prison, with analyses of colonialism, post colonialism, race, and what they term the ...

After Ten Years, Sarbanes-Oxley Might Be Statutory Overkill Jun 2015

After Ten Years, Sarbanes-Oxley Might Be Statutory Overkill

Alquiler Coches

The start of the twenty first century brought with it some spectacular corporate accounting scandals: Enron, World-Com, Adelphia, and Tyco, to name a few. The subsequent congressional hearings investigating the accounting and ethical failures of these companies resulted in a parade of one corporate executive after another claiming they had no knowledge of the massive fraud in their firms. In response to this rapid-fire succession of corporate scandals, Congress enacted the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 (“SOX”). It is a statute first introduced by Senator Paul Sarbanes and Congressman Michael Oxley, and signed into law by President George W. Bush in ...

Itsenko-Cushing: The Syndrome And The Disease

Alquiler Coches

An up-to-date presentation of 162 studies of the leading experts in the field, this 106-page manual extends, analyzes, and replicates knowledge (1963-2013) about the Cushing's syndrome and Cushing's disease covering a vast range of clusters: the HPA and HPT axis, ultradian rhythms, autoimmune response, liver battery, coagulation cascade, clinical manifestations in respects to perinatal health, mental health, sexual health, infertility, side effects of medications, recurrence, and beyond. It illustrates and interprets surgical nuances of transsphenoidal and transnasal approaches, sphenoidal endoscopy, and bilateral retroperineal adrenalectomy. Complications are discussed.


A Case Study Of Patriarchy And Slavery: The Hermeneutical Importance Of QurʾĀnic Assumptions In The Development Of A Values-Based And Purposive Oriented QurʾĀn-Sunna Hermeneutic Jun 2015

A Case Study Of Patriarchy And Slavery: The Hermeneutical Importance Of QurʾĀnic Assumptions In The Development Of A Values-Based And Purposive Oriented QurʾĀn-Sunna Hermeneutic

Alquiler Coches

It is the task of this paper to argue that the development of a new Qurʾān-sunna hermeneutic (and therefore Islamic legal theory) which hermeneutically privileges an ethico-religiousand purposive approach to a Qurʾānic interpretation (based on ethically objectivist nature of ethical value) has the potential to engender a gender symmetrical Islamic law. In orderfor this to be achieved, it is argued further, that the hermeneutical importance of the mirroringof the various socio-cultural and ethico-moral assumptions prevalent in the Qurʾān’s revelatory milieu in the actual Qurʾānic text itself must be taken into account as evident in those passages pertaining to the ...

Confidence: Does It Matter?

Alquiler Coches

Applying multiple queues, this monograph presents perspectives on how to define and measure self-confidence: geometrical reasoning (fractals, sets, gaskets), biological markers of confidence (oxytocin, growth hormone, serotonin), and stochastic compartmental stimulations of the mood profile and functionality subscales. It compares confidence (that internal tranquil bravado) in respects to the ambitions, motivations, and morality. Benevolent and evil confidence, types of confidence of a reasonable person vs. psychopath constructs, are compared.

The objectives of this study were (1) to elucidate ethical priorities in reproductive health in studies published between 1986 and 2012, and (2) to address the place of clinical ethics in reproductive health knowledge economy through comparative analysis of country-based ethical vignettes and practices. A total of 101 studies are identified through the PubMed portal. Recruited studies are inclusive for their focus and level of evidence (I, II-1, 2, 3). Pooled prevalence of the ethical problems, their approximate determinants, and outcomes are modeled as measurable outcomes. Ethical debates are correlated with the extrapolated maternal and perinatal mortality rates. Calculations use ...

Maternal-Fetal Conflicts, From Torts To Criminal Justice: A Medical-Legal Study Of 120 Cases Jun 2015

Maternal-Fetal Conflicts, From Torts To Criminal Justice: A Medical-Legal Study Of 120 Cases

Alquiler Coches

In caring for a pregnant women, physicians consider the health of two biologically linked, yet individually viable patients. Viewed as an organic whole, the combined maternal-fetal benefit of proposed interventions is weighed against the combined burdens. In the common-law, the concept of maternal-fetal conflicts (MFC) often becomes an indirect evidence or inter alia, an ever-resolving puzzle comprised of elements of criminal assault/battery to civil tort interference. The account set in this book is not to resonate, but to simplify our concerns or duties in resolving MFC. Stemmed of 644 references, and packed in 35 chapters, this 478-page encyclopedia analyzes ...

Ieee Istas13- People As Sensors: The Social Implications Of Living In A Smart World, Alexander Hayes, Katina Michael, Nick Rheinberger

Alexander Hayes Mr.

What is the technological trajectory of people wearing sensors? What are the benefits, risks and costs? What is the vibe going to be like at ISTAS13 with people like Marvin Minsky and Ray Kurzweil attending? What do you hope to gain from the meeting? Can we foresee a time that all glasses will be embedded with sensors? What are the implications? E.g. in the higher education sector? What about the gathering of evidence by law enforcement? What is point of eye?

Misadventures Of A Law School Misfit

bobbymartin76@shaw.ca

If the brilliant, legendary playwright Rod Serling were still with us, he might have described a law school graduate’s credentials something like this—consider if you will, the law school graduate’s perfect resume: 1) graduated first in his class from “Ivy League University”; 2) graduated first in his class from “Ivy League Law School”; 3) law review editor; and 4) elevation to Big-Firm partnership.

Well, that ain’t me. I was never a law review editor. I did not graduate in the top ten percent of my class. I did not go to an Ivy League college or ...
