Sms - Reaching Beyond Low Hanging Fruit, Stewart Schreckengast 2014 University of South Australia

Sms - Reaching Beyond Low Hanging Fruit, Stewart Schreckengast

International Journal of Aviation, Aeronautics, and Aerospace

Human nature predisposes us to maximize our accomplishments while making a concerted effort to balance resource expenditures so we achieve an optimal return on our efforts. All too often what this really means is that we do the easy things that can be done with minimal effort; we grab the low hanging fruit. Traditional incident investigation methodology enables us to reach beyond the obvious reactive solutions. The incident investigation methodology is also an exceptional foundation for safety management system (SMS) development because it supports a holistic approach to reaching the fruit that is ripe for harvesting, the deficiencies that become ...

Grounding Drones: Big Brother’S Tool Box Needs Regulation Not Elimination, Melanie Reid 2014 University of Richmond

Grounding Drones: Big Brother’S Tool Box Needs Regulation Not Elimination, Melanie Reid

Richmond Journal of Law & Technology

The Ford Model A was advertised as “the latest and best” in the world in 1903 and sparked global interest to design and create better, faster, and more complex machines than had ever traveled on land. Fast forward to the 21st century and creating machines that can travel around the world’s airspace appears to be the latest fascination. Until relatively recently, only airplanes and helicopters dominated the friendly skies. But now, the public is catching on to the idea that building an aircraft is easier that one might expect. In fact, a pilot is no longer necessary. Drones, also ...

The Greening Of Public Private Partnerships: What Design Professionals And Contractors Need To Know For Green Building's Next Legal Frontier, Tracy L. Steedman, Stephen Del Percio, Matthew L. Kimball

University of Baltimore Journal of Land and Development

America is at a pivotal moment in maintaining and modernizing its public infrastructure. Our nation's roads, bridges, water systems and energy networks have long been in poor repair. Much of the country's public infrastructure was put into place over fifty years ago, and many of these systems are simply overwhelmed or worn out. Infrastructure that is in poor condition or disrepair is mostly a hidden problem until it inconveniently stops working or worse, when ghastly consequences ensue from catastrophic failures.

J.L.'S Time Bomb Still Ticking: How Navarette's Narrow Holding Failed To Address Important Issues Regarding Anonymous Tips, Andrew B. Kartchner

University of Baltimore Law Review

The conflict is clear and the stakes are high. The effect of the rule below will be to grant drunk drivers one free swerve before they can legally be pulled over by police. It will be difficult for an officer to explain to the family of a motorist killed by that swerve that the police had a tip that the driver of the other car was drunk, but that they were powerless to pull him over, even for a quick check.

Your View: ‘Do Not Track’ Should Apply To Drivers, Too, Hillary B. Farber 2014 University of Massachusetts School of Law - Dartmouth

Your View: ‘Do Not Track’ Should Apply To Drivers, Too, Hillary B. Farber

Faculty Publications

Location tracking data can reveal quite a bit of information about a person when it is all pieced together. Just by knowing where and when a person frequents certain places we can know about his/her recreational habits, religious affiliations, professional affiliations, relationship status, personal health and hygiene, social preferences and contacts, and so much more. That is why it is so important to regulate the use of location tracking technology. There are a variety of efforts afoot to rein in government use of such technology – this op-ed is concerned with automated license plate readers.


Tesla And The Car Dealers’ Lobby, Daniel A. Crane 2014 University of Michigan Law School

Tesla And The Car Dealers’ Lobby, Daniel A. Crane

Law & Economics Working Papers

Tesla Motors, the offspring of the South African-American entrepreneur Elon Musk who also brought us Pay-Pal and SpaceX, is the most exciting automotive development in many decades and a marquee story of American technological dynamism and innovation. The company’s luxury electric cars have caused a sensation in the auto industry, including a review by Consumer Reports calling Tesla’s Model S the best car it ever tested.

Tesla faces enormous challenges in penetrating an automotive market that has been dominated for a century by internal combustion engines. Not only must it build cars that customers want to drive (and ...

More Market-Oriented Than U.S. And More Socialist Than China: A Comparative Public Property Story Of Singapore, Jianlin Chen, Jiongzhe Cui 2013 University of Hong Kong

More Market-Oriented Than U.S. And More Socialist Than China: A Comparative Public Property Story Of Singapore, Jianlin Chen, Jiongzhe Cui

Jianlin Chen

Compared to the more illustrious conceptualization of private property, the conceptualiza-tion of public property remains at a surprisingly infantile stage. The very definition of public property is ambiguous. This article utilizes a comparative case study of traffic congestion policies in the United States, China, and Singapore to highlight the conceptual pitfalls posed by the current confusion on public property. This article proposes a refined public property framework that offers greater conceptual clarity on the real issues at stake. In particular, this article argues that “property” in public property should include regulatory permits while “public” in public property should not be ...

The Intelligentization Of Automobiles:Smart-Cars、Robo-Cars And Their Safety Governance, Yueh-Hsuan Weng, Dominic Hillenbrand

Yueh-Hsuan Weng

Currently, we are witnessing the transition from feature- to smart-cars, and it will be arevolutionary trend since smart-cars’ highly perception with unstructured environments. The control systems in feature cars are well understood and within our theoretical frameworks. Certain safety properties of stability control systems-for example-can be formally proved. The underlying physical models are well understood and can be fitted with accurate sensor readings. The ECUs understanding of the environment is therefore close to the ground truth. However, as pointed out in this is no longer the case for smart-cars where driver assistance systems implement (semi)-autonomous behaviors. Except to smart ...

The Road From Welfare To Work: Informal Transportation And The Urban Poor, Nicole Stelle Garnett 2013 Notre Dame Law School

The Road From Welfare To Work: Informal Transportation And The Urban Poor, Nicole Stelle Garnett

Nicole Stelle Garnett

Individuals struggling to move from welfare to work face numerous obstacles. This Article addresses one of those obstacles: lack of transportation. Without reliable transportation, many welfare recipients are unable to find and maintain jobs located out of the reach of traditional forms of public transportation. Professor Garnett argues that lawmakers should remove restrictions on informal van or jitney services, allowing entrepreneurs to provide low-cost transportation to their communities. This reform would not only help people get to work, but it could also provide jobs for low-income people.

Incorporation By Reference In Maritime Arbitration, Arjya B. Majumdar 2013 Jindal Global Law School

Incorporation By Reference In Maritime Arbitration, Arjya B. Majumdar

Arjya B Majumdar

This paper deals with maritime arbitration in general and in particular, the applicability of arbitration clauses in charterparties incorporated by reference into bills of lading. Following a discussion on the origin of maritime arbitration we see how dispute resolution in the shipping industry had initially been associated with informal procedures involving little or no dependence upon courts and other systems of formal dispute resolution methods, thus bringing about a special nexus between the maritime industry and non-judicial methods of dispute resolution- such as arbitration.

One of the key requirements of an arbitration to take place is that the arbitration agreement ...


Closing The Door On The Public Policy Exception To At- Will Employment: How The Washington State Supreme Court Erroneously Foreclosed Wrongful Discharge Claims For Whistleblowers In Cudney V. Alsco, Inc., Laura A. Turczanski 2013 Seattle University School of Law

Closing The Door On The Public Policy Exception To At- Will Employment: How The Washington State Supreme Court Erroneously Foreclosed Wrongful Discharge Claims For Whistleblowers In Cudney V. Alsco, Inc., Laura A. Turczanski

Seattle University Law Review

In 2008, Matthew Cudney was terminated from his employment with ALSCO, Inc. a few weeks after reporting to his supervisor and human resources manager that he observed the branch general manager appearing intoxicated at work and driving away in a company vehicle. Cudney brought an action for wrongful discharge in violation of public policy, claiming that he was terminated in retaliation for reporting the manager’s drinking and driving. In a 5–4 decision, the Washington Supreme Court held that Cudney’s tort claim of wrongful discharge in violation of public policy could not proceed. This Note contends that the ...

Survey Of Washington Search And Seizure Law: 2013 Update, Justice Charles W. Johnson, Justice Debra L. Stephens

Seattle University Law Review

This survey is intended to serve as a resource to which Washington lawyers, judges, law enforcement officers, and others can turn as an authoritative starting point for researching Washington search and seizure law. In order to be useful as a research tool, this Survey requires periodic updates to address new cases interpreting the Washington constitution and the U.S. Constitution and to reflect the current state of the law. Many of these cases involve the Washington State Supreme Court’s interpretation of the Washington constitution. Also, as the U.S. Supreme Court has continued to examine Fourth Amendment search and ...
