Learn More About the New Law – Causing Death by Careless Driving

Previously if someone caused death by careless driving then they could not be handed down a custodial sentence. This not only denied the aggrieved families justice for the wrongful death of their loved ones, it also made it much harder to implement restrictions on improper driving practice such as dialling and driving. Hands free phones are so readily available now that the negligent practice of dialling and driving has been re-evaluated and now qualifies under a new law which can hand out custodial sentences to those who cause death or serious injury by careless driving.

The current legal system can deliver a sentence of up to 14 years for someone convicted of dangerous driving however until recently if someone caused death by careless driving then they would simply walk away with a fine. The case of a 14 year old Brit is a perfect example; Jessica Leigh was killed by a motorist speeding at 60mph in a 30mph speed limit and the convicted killer driver pled not guilty. Despite being convicted of death by careless driving the driver was 300GBP and 6 penalty points.

This would also cover drivers who neglect to use hands free phones or drive while unlicensed even if there was no fault with driving. So an unlicensed driver who kills a pedestrian will be subject to a custodial sentence because they are not meant to be on the road, therefore the incident would not have happened if they had obeyed the law. The same principle is applied to people who do not use hands free phones, as if they had obeyed legislation regarding hands free phones the accident would not have happened.

This legislative change has been described as overdue by many and the Ministry of Justice has listed the number of unacceptable distractions as non hands free phones, texting, drinking and eating, adjusting CPS or stereo, applying make-up or reading a map, the list has also been extended to using a smart-phone or BlackBerry. It is estimated that 40 percent of drivers will still use phones without hands free phone kits whilst operating a vehicle and road safety groups are hoping that this step in the right direction will act as a deterrent to dial drivers.

Hands free phones are available from a multitude of providers and range in style and cost. Most can only accommodate incoming calls whilst driving, as to make a call you still need to dial which will cause a distraction. Some new technology provides hands free phones with voice dialling capabilities, this enables you to dial by just saying a name which is pre-recorded and linked to your address book.

Law School Grants and Financial Aid For Single Mothers

Law degree is an amazing qualification to acquire at both the personal and professional level, but studying for law is a very expensive form of education. Single mothers with their own stress of handling work and home, cannot even think of such ambitions considering the expense of law education. For such instance have been designed the law school grants and financial aid for single mothers, which offers to provide the monetary services for those single mothers who are willing to study for the law course.

Grants for law education are extensively available but we should know the right place to start our research. Firstly, we should find maximum information about financial aids from the university or college we are thinking of pursuing the course. Many of the educational institutions provide scholarships and grants for students of the low-income households so that they can start their education. The other law grants provided to single mothers have been listed below in short:

1) Equal Justice Works fellowship – This award is granted to fifty law students, in varying amounts. The eligible students should meet the criterion for working in undeserved communities.

2) Law Schools Admission Council Research Grants – Law students working on a legal research program are entitled for this scholarship.

3) Elaine Osborne Jacobsen award for Women Working in Health Care Law – This award is granted to a female graduate student allocated as health care advocate or to a female law undergrad. The award prize money is $3,000.

The Washington College of Law believes in awarding those students who are studying for the doctorate program in law, which is a few of its kind in this arena of education. The Nation’s Top Law School, the Columbia School of Law, also honors eligible students with awards and gifts who need financial care. The American Bar Association donates the highest number of grants and scholarships and believes in the motto of providing maximum financial assistance to the minority group and to the needy students to uphold the prestige of this profession. Other Law schools which also aim in providing the necessary financial aid and grants to the deserving students are the University of Michigan, Cornell University and so on.

The federal government also understands the inevitability of grants and loans for the single mothers. To be eligible for the federal grants, a free application form should be submitted at the online centre FAFSA, also including the last year’s tax payment records. There are also several low-interest loans provided from the state like the Federal Stafford, Federal Perkins, Graduate PLUS and so on.

Acquiring a law degree makes you a respected member of the society, owing to the service you are providing in turn. Law school grants and financial aid for single mothers has been started for the very reason of making the single mothers a respectable part of the society and securing a very sound future for them.

Is The Justice Department Over Reaching On Fraud Enforcement in An Election Year?

It seems whenever there is a tough economy, there are more shysters who come out of the woodwork. This makes sense of course because if money is tight, and fewer people to get a job, it’s more difficult for these culprits to get a real job to use their cunning and intellectual abilities for positive purposes such as making a profit in their own small businesses. Okay so, I’d like to talk about this for a moment if I might.

You see, I’ve also noticed another trend. Whenever there is a major election going on, candidates claim that when they get into office they will stop the crime, scams, and fraud. It’s hard to say why they do this – perhaps they are redirecting attention away from themselves and their own political shenanigans. But I would suspect that’s not the only reason. It’s because negative events make better headlines, and if a politician can point at some negative event, and then claim they will fix it, all the suddenly more voters take interest.

In fact, I think a little bit of that is going on right now. There was an interesting piece recently on the FBI website which was of value to discuss, the title of the government press release was; “Attorney General Eric Holder Launches Consumer Protection Working Group to Combat Consumer Fraud Working Group Created Under President Obama’s Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force Brings Together Federal, State, and Local Partners,” and it appeared on their site on February 13, 2011.

The reality is – we already have the government bureaucracy to take care of some of these problems, not to mention lots of law enforcement agencies. So why is it now that the Obama Administration wants to jump on this right away, during an election year. How come they didn’t work on this problem in the last couple of years? It is not as if there was ever a shortage of dishonest people in the world, so why now?

Another comment that I would like to make, perhaps tongue-in-cheek, is that I guess my biggest question is; when will the FBI investigate the Obama Administration for abuse of law, violating the constitution, and other fraudulent activity (in my opinion)? Seriously, let’s talk about that and not just because it’s an election year, we can wait until after the election to seek justice and return things back to the rule of law.

If the Obama Administration is merely trying to secure their proposed budget by showing that they need more money to do the job, then the DOJ should have been doing it all along. As we look for things such as corporate malfeasance, how about government administrative and executive leadership malfeasance? Well, I dare to ask the question, yes even in an election year. Please consider all this and think on it.

Bewildered Racial Injustice Or Out With the Immoral Color

The current incident with Arizona’s immigration law creates many administrative challenges within an existing complex global environment. In addition, confused Arizona and US citizens will ponder of misinterpretations resulting from lack of understanding. In essence, bewildered injustice can occur simply resulting from color of skin. Furthermore, a recent incident that sparked racial overtones involving Shirley Sherrod highlights the sensitivity of today’s continued environment. However, while a perplexed Arizona immigration law or the Sherrod incident is creating interest amongst the population, an additional and similar scenario written on Ezinearticles.com titled, “Bewildered Racial Injustice,” is generating additional interests. Hence, similar situations resulting from a color of skin is creating confrontations in various settings. As stated by Robinson (2009), “In fact, race-based policies have even created a new form of racism: reverse racism.”

In any event, continued racism events would not continue; in which a litigious society uses misguided capitalistic justice producing various events, which should have been abolished, if due-process laws were implemented. In other words, the racism events of the past, the reverse racism events at Remec Defense and Space, recent Arizona and Sherrod incidents, combined with future racism events would not occur if an existing legal society would focus on righteous justice rather than capitalistic or British Motor Works (BMW) justice. Unfortunately, focusing on capitalistic justice will cause racism events to flourish. As further stated in Luke 11:52, “Woe to you experts in the law, because you have taken away the key to knowledge. You yourselves have not entered, and you have hindered those who were entering.” In other words, the justice system practiced by Attorneys Geyman, Ingrassia, and others have denied or hindered opportunity through not listening and ignoring factual or statistical data. In addition, the justice systems practiced by aforementioned attorneys have allowed racism to flourish through capitalistic justice. Furthermore, the key to knowledge or further opportunities are denied allowing racism events to continue. Regrettably, misguided capitalistic justice produces bewildered injustice. Furthermore, as commented by an attorney, “why should the attorney focus on a $16 per hour employee when the attorney is earning $300 per hour?”
For instance, recently a Chief Executive Officer finds amusement in comparing the Honorable president’s wife as a subhuman monkey. As stated by Sue (2010), “But Walt Baker, the CEO of the Tennessee Hospitality Association believes she resembles a chimpanzee, and he found the idea so hilarious he had to share his racism with his pals.” In essence, Walt Baker had a blatant disrespect for the First Lady, Michelle Obama. However, as news of racist comments spread, repercussions followed. As stated by Sue (2010), “As the fallout over the crude email continued and made it to the local news channel, Spyridon released a statement condemning Baker’s email, as ‘appalling and unacceptable’ and terminated the NCVB’s ‘contract with Mr. Baker’s marketing agency, Mercatus Communications.'”

Furthermore and in a separate incident, a scholar and African American University Professor finds himself arrested for using an alternative entrance method. In essence, Harvard Professor Henry Gates Jr. was arrested for entering his own home. However, Professor Gates Jr. just arrived via taxi from a long journey from China feeling tired and jet-lagged. In addition, the phrase “Know thy Neighbor” was overlooked. Hence, returning from a very long trip and having difficulty entering your own home after discovering tampering does not create bright spirits. Thus, a long journey from China, the Moroccan taxi driver who helped in opening the door, combined with a tampered lock and being confronted in one’s own home after identification appears ignored would generate unpleasant comments. Unfortunately, capitalistic justice through negligence produces many racist events.

Nevertheless, in another twist and concern denying entry to an open-door premise was the incident of African-Americans being denied admittance toward swimming pool activities. In other words, African American children are denied entry toward swimming pool activities as an individuals pigment may cause disturbance toward a swimming clubs facility. In essence, swimming pool entry is based upon a color of skin. Thus, the racism events, which should have been abolished, continue from lack of righteous justice.

In the meantime, while racism events continue and are ignored by capitalistic justice, reverse racism events are additionally occurring. For instance, a Veteran such as myself, and former defense and space employee reports toward upper management a senior Caucasian coworker comments of “monkey proof instructional materials” to a primary Asian and African American workforce, which eventually results in exit activities. In other words, Remec Defense & Space and currently Cobham was undertaking an excellence program and attempting to improve the current atmosphere. The work area consisted primarily of Asian or other ethnic groups. During the ongoing excellence program, a senior Caucasian employee reports of “monkey proof instructional material” to an ethnic workforce. In essence, employment favoritism is focused toward non-Caucasian and correspondingly, one should not distort the color in the workplace similar as the swimming pool incident.

Nonetheless, the statistical chart focusing toward race percentage and not the obvious continuous age discrimination shows an out with the whitey mission. In other words, the percentage appears high from a primary non-Caucasian workforce as if sending an at-will racism message. Furthermore, considering Fiel’s comments of “…not speaking English,” human resources comments of “lacking fit,” human resources comments, “we can hire who we want,” and prior discussions that Mexico is a half hours drive would lead toward profiling or reverse discrimination in the workplace. In addition, when other limited Caucasian Remec Defense & Space employees and with other referenced comments shows that an at-will reverse racism event is taking place. Unfortunately, given ignored capitalistic justice through selective hearing combined with recent shooting rampage would certainly send a message. On the other hand, the incidences could be described as normal American behavior resulting from many historical experiences.

Thus, job opportunities within an organization or through the application process are denied employment resulting from skin color intended to fulfill other non-Caucasian requirements while attorneys ignore reverse racism allowing such practices to continue. In other words, current Caucasians should not be held accountable for prior brainless racism events. However, creating such employment practice could place unqualified individuals in positions destined for more ignored or unfavored colored applicant.

Therefore, unfortunate skin color creates blockades to opportunity. Furthermore, as stated by an ehow (2009) contributor, “At times, such a practice, as laudable is it is for the goals it tries to attain, causes qualified Caucasian males to be overlooked for positions in favor of minority applicants who are not qualified.” The American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language (2007) states reverse discrimination is, “Discrimination against members of a dominant or majority group, especially when resulting from policies established to correct discrimination against members of a minority or disadvantaged group.”

Regrettably, combined with referenced materials, reverse discrimination at Remec Defense & Space through denied opportunities or communication retaliation, overcoming Asian relatives, and a nearby Mexican border produces various avenues of racial discrimination while seeking further ethnic candidates from prior downsized employees. Unfortunately, individuals such as others and I attempt creating justice through capitalistic attorneys, however the racism messages appears lost or ignored. Furthermore, when individuals exercise their given rights, individuals are further retaliated against through denied unemployment and become members of a black-ball society. In other words, individuals are insured through further denied employment opportunities for exercising constitutional respective rights. Furthermore, when individuals report incidences, then individuals become targets for retaliation. Therefore, given the prior and referenced events, racism in any form will continue unless other administrative action including disbarment is taken. In addition, establishing substantial increased retroactive triple punitive damages for justice systems, the EEOC, and for the individual against capitalistic attorneys might create awareness toward unaccomplished at-will racism events. In other words, given racism in America resulting from unfocused capitalistic justice, racism events in any form will flourish unless an acceptable American tradition.

In conclusion, the highlighted racism events mentioned are only a snippet of current practices allowed resulting from inactive capitalistic attorneys. In addition, racism events will continue in either form including reverse racism unless administrative action is taken. Unfortunately, reporting racism events or attempting justice is rewarded with retaliation. On the other hand, if desired racism events as practiced in prior years are the desired goal, then further unwanted news events will likely occur.

The Great Law of Genghis Khan

Upon ascending to the title of Genghis Khan, the young Mongol leader found himself the ruler of dozens of fractious tribes, composed of men and women of different ethnicities, religions and cultural backgrounds. Formerly members of the Tatars, the Kereyids, the Naiman and the Mongol tribes, these man and women were held together only by their devotion to Genghis Khan. He knew that for this new people to function as one he would have to take steps to prevent their going to war with each other, and so he designed the Great Law, one that superseded all local laws and that was aimed at preventing the causes of traditional tension and strife.

The first new law that he instigated was to strike at the heart of one of the greatest causes of strife amongst the tribes. Traditionally men could kidnap women of another tribe to take as wives, causing feuds to arise between the tribes, resulting in decades of raiding and counter raiding as each group sought justice. Genghis Khan forbade the kidnapping of women from henceforth, allowing wronged tribes to appeal to him for retribution against the perpetrator.

Another new law was aimed to end the practice of capturing and enslaving Mongols so as to force them into prolonged servitude. This practice caused great distress to the social fabric, causing men and women anguish beyond measure and ensuring that the tribes remained focused against each other.

A third law declared that all children born of a man, whether from his wife or concubine were legitimate heirs, and that it was no longer legal to sell a woman to be another man’s wife, and he also outlawed adultery, which in the Mongol society was defined as any open sexual relation between sufficiently different families as to cause strife between them.

Finally, he made the theft of animals from neighboring tribes a capital crime, since raiding was one of the greatest sources of conflict and enmity between his people, and ordered that nobody could hunt wild animals during the summer months, ensuring that there would be plenty of food for the winter. He also passed a universal law of religious toleration, probably the first of its kind.
