Haiti Needs Socialism, David Clark 2009 Clark & Towne, PC

Haiti Needs Socialism, David Clark

David E Clark

Bill Clinton said that the Tsunami survivors six years ago deserved the chance to decide their own future. Haiti deserves the same hands-off approach as they rebuild after the 2010 earthquake. Aristide should be allowed to return and work with Venezuela and Cuba. If he decides to implement the same socialist reforms that have worked elsewhere in the Americas, so be it.


Utility, Truth, And Atheism, James Crimmins 2009 Huron University College, Canada

Utility, Truth, And Atheism, James Crimmins

James E Crimmins

Le manuscrit présenté dans ce dossier s’inscrit dans un corpus plus large : celui des écrits que Bentham consacre aux liens entre l’utilité et la religion, une question qui préoccupe le philosophe tout au long de sa vie. Les textes publiés par ses amis et disciples, George Grote et Francis Place doivent être confrontés aux volumineux manuscrits originaux. En posant la question des rapports de la religion avec l’utilité, Bentham ne peut faire l’économie d’une réflexion sur la vérité de la religion, une approche sous-tendue par ses positions matérialistes. Affirmant à plusieurs reprises l’inutilité de ...

Beyond Euroscepticism: On The Choice Of Legal Regimes As Empowerment Of Citizens, Jan Smits 2009 Maastricht University

Beyond Euroscepticism: On The Choice Of Legal Regimes As Empowerment Of Citizens, Jan Smits

Jan M Smits

This contribution aims to show that Euroscepticism is based on a particular view of how citizens' interests are represented. This view should be replaced with a different type of thinking about ensuring citizens' participation in the European integration process. In this alternative view, the possibility of citizens choosing legal regimes other than their 'own' (and States being explicit about the limits of exercising such an enhanced party autonomy) is seen as a method of empowering citizens in fields that matter to them the most. Typically, these fields relate to (but are not limited to) what is known as 'private law ...


Black Tuesday And Graying The Legitimacy Line For Governmental Intervention: When Tomorrow Is Just A Future Yesterday, Donald Kochan 2009 Chapman University School of Law

Black Tuesday And Graying The Legitimacy Line For Governmental Intervention: When Tomorrow Is Just A Future Yesterday, Donald Kochan

Donald J. Kochan

Black Tuesday in October 1929 marked a major crisis in American history. As we face current economic woes, it is appropriate to recall not only the event but also reflect on how it altered the legal landscape and the change it precipitated in the acceptance of governmental intervention into the marketplace. Perceived or real crises can cause us to dance between free markets and regulatory power. Much like the events of 1929, current financial concerns have led to new, unprecedented governmental intervention into the private sector. This Article seeks caution, on the basis of history, arguing that fear and crisis ...

State, Youth And Electoral Violence In Nigeria’S Fourth Republic: The Imperative Of A Nationally Cordinated Youth Empowerment Program, David Moveh 2009 Department of Political Science, Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria

State, Youth And Electoral Violence In Nigeria’S Fourth Republic: The Imperative Of A Nationally Cordinated Youth Empowerment Program, David Moveh

David O Moveh PhD.

One manifestation of Nigeria’s crisis of governance since the advent of civil rule in 1999 is the spate of youth violence that has characterized the electoral process. From the plains up north to the creeks in the south, Nigeria’s electoral process within the past decade has been mired in violence so much as to make mockery of the democratization process. A lot of works (Bangura: 1997, Momoh: 2000, Yau: 2000) have studied how Nigeria’s economic crisis and the attendant structural adjustment programme of the 1980s resulted in the alienation and marginalization of the youth, thereby exacerbating the ...


Educação Do Olhar: Um Processo Significativo, Filipe Celeti 2009 Faculdade Sumaré, São Paulo

Educação Do Olhar: Um Processo Significativo, Filipe Celeti

Filipe Celeti

A partir do conceito ausubeliano de aprendizagem significativa é possível tecer um paralelo entre educar o olhar e o conhecimento significativo. O baixo caráter inquietante existente no uso da arte impede que o aluno consiga ter a intenção de atribuir significado ao sensorial. O problema não é apenas o do ensino artístico, pois educar o olhar é educar o sujeito. É necessária uma educação de possibilidades para que, ao ver o mundo, o sujeito (aluno) possa interpretar e significar o que lhe afeta os cinco sentidos.
