...International Business Law Introduced by : Walaa Fouad Marian Zakria Marwa Gorib Tamer Gouda Case No. 5 5. State U had a long-standing relationship with N, the President of State P. President N had regularly provided information to State U’s national intelligence agency on activities of the political foes of State U both in State P and in the countries that neighbor State P. At the same time, State U had long ignored N’s activities in helping drug runners transport illicit drugs into State U. Now, a change in the government in State U has caused State U not only to disassociate itself from the intelligence activities of President N but also to condemn his drug-related dealings. In need of a boost in the political polls, the President of State U orders his military to invade State P and apprehend President N.This is done. President N is then put on trial in a State U court for violation of State U’s antidrug statutes. (a) Assuming that the court can be impartial, does it have jurisdiction to try President N?

Buffalo Seiche

...Garrett Hileman October 18th, 1844 was the most disastrous flood that has ever hit the city of Buffalo since it was founded. The rising waters of Lake Erie came without warning and surprised the sleeping community. Many people were sleeping as the waters began to rise. For several days before the event of the flood a strong north-east wind had been driving the water in the lake to rise above normal levels. On October 18th a shift of the wind had taken place, and it blew from the opposite direction with astounding force never before or to be known to happen in Buffalo. With the sudden change in direction of the wind volumes of water began to build in a dreadful wave, which overflowed the lower districts of the city. The rising waters began at 12 o'clock (midnight) and in less than half an hour the whole lower part of the city south of the canal from Black Rock to the Hydraulics was submerged in water from two to eight feet in depth. The height in which the water rose to was completely unpredicted. Houses were blown down--unroofed--cellars flooded; in fact the great amount of damage done almost instantaneously. Upwards of eighty canal boats went ashore between Buffalo and Black Rock. In the lower districts there were many harbor craft and canal boats left by the receding waters, many canal boats being out on the commons, on Division, Eagle and Clinton streets along with many steamboats being taken by the rusing water and left abandoned. South Buffalo was dumped with......

Resilient City

...Elizabeth Kiem Resilient Cities What makes a city resilient? When the word resilience comes to mind I think of ones ability to bounce back. In the case of matching resilient up with a city I wasn’t quite sure what exactly goes into a city being qualified to earn that adjective. After navigating around the Building Resilient Regions Website and viewing what they do and how they do it, I found myself looking at their resilience capacity index. This index ranks over 300 U.S. cities on how it recovers from stress. Ultimately a cities stress is a mixture of how well it can handle natural disasters, economic decline, and rapid growth. It can be summarized as a cities ability to adapt and transform. When looking at the index the top ranked cities was not what I expected. I decided to see just how resilient one of my favorite cities to go to is; Seattle, Washington. I picked Seattle because I love to visit there. Being from Arizona I love the change of scenery. Cool, rainy, and gray is a nice getaway from scorching and dry. I also have family there so it’s a city close to my heart. I have never thought about its resiliency so after I learn more the next time I go there I can see first hand what needs to be done or what it already doing. Seattle is the largest city in Washington and located between Lake Washington and an inlet of the Pacific Ocean called the Puget Sound. Seattle’s population is over 600,000 people. Seattle is hilly and has wet winters and dry summers. In......

Exxon Valdez and Prince William Sound Case

...Exxon Valdez and Prince William Sound Case Keller Graduate School of Management – Online AC573 Anthony Mucheru Instructor – Frank Pidgeon November 2011 Shortly after midnight on March 24, 1989, the oil tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground on Bligh Reef in Alaska’s Prince William Sound, spilling 11 million gallons of crude oil. At the time of the grounding, the vessel had departed from normal shipping lanes to avoid ice in the water and had failed to make a corrective turn in time to avoid the submerged reef. The ship was piloted by third mate Gregory Cousins, who did not hold a required license; the captain, Joseph Hazelwood, was in his quarters. Hazelwood, whose driver’s license was at the time suspended for driving while intoxicated, later failed a sobriety test. At the time, the pipeline was opened and strict traffic lanes were established in the Sound to guarantee safe tanker passage. But, in recent years, disintegration of the Columbia Glacier had filled the lanes with ice. To avoid slowing down to dodge icebergs—thereby delaying the oil’s delivery to market—tanker captains routinely moved out of the shipping lanes (Brooks, L. J., 2010 p. 505). On shore, no one was keeping watch. Although the Coast Guard was charged with monitoring vessels through Prince William Sound, in fact, its outdated radar system did not reliably track vessels as far out as Bligh Reef. An earlier proposal to upgrade the radar system had been rejected as too expensive. And the Coast Guard’s......

...Lindsay Lohan was born on July 2, 1986, in New York City. She was a child actress and model before her breakout performance in the Tina Fey scripted film "Mean Girls." She also released the pop album, "Speak," in 2004 which went platinum. Since becoming a celebrity Lohan has had problems with drug and alcohol abuse that have been well-documented in the tabloids. Actress, singer. Born Lindsay Dee Lohan on July 2, 1986, in New York City. Lohan's father, Michael Lohan, ran his family's pasta business and worked as an investment banker. Her mother, Donata "Dina" Sullivan, was a Wall Street analyst. Lohan grew up in the wealthy Long Island suburbs of Cold Spring Harbor and Merrick. Stints as a child model and commercial actress brought Lohan into the spotlight at the age of three. The star of more than 60 television spots and 100 print ads for clients like Toys 'R Us and Duncan Hines helped Lohan land the film role of twin sisters in Disney's 1998 remake of The Parent Trap.

...people of Washington DC have proved this trend to be highly marketable trend, for example K Street in Washington DC is a strip of lounges on a whole street.

Essay On Japanese Internment Camps

...The Japanese Experience: Pre and Post Internment Camp The Japanese attack of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 caused the United States to not only declare war against Japan, but also to demand internment for anyone persons living in the United States that would be considered a national security threat, most of those people being Japanese-Americans. The Japanese experience has been altered by the policies and narrative of United States history. As waves of immigrants began to populate more of the West Coast, the growing frustration of California citizens allowed for the legal discrimination of most Asian Americans. Throughout their time in the U.S, there is a rich history attached to the Japanese experience. Among World War II, internment camps,...

...Looking out into the world in which we exist, my thoughts turn towards the turbulent times that we are facing, those that we have already faced, and those that we will face tomorrow. I wonder if there is hope for the present, the future, and if we as individuals and leaders can make a difference, change our behavior patterns and mental models, so we can improve relationships among ourselves our communities and our workplace for the betterment of mankind. I find myself thinking of Kwame Anthony Appiah and his vision of a Cosmopolitanism world. He believes that we must change our minds and we must make our conversation across boundaries worthwhile. He believes that we must not judge different cultures by their values or beliefs, but instead must try to understand them and accept them for what they are, who they are, and what they can offer to the world. He believes that the wealthy must change their mental model too and feels that they hold a tendency to think that unfamiliar cultures of the world are not so much subjects of interest or even curiosity, but as objects of charity. Are we so ignorant to the beauty of different cultures that we think they are objects of charity? Or that they have nothing to offer? Are we as humans unaware of the things around us that we ourselves lack involvement? Arthur D. Colman writes about the Tao Te Ching Philosophy and its way of life and how it teaches us that to be able to function fully within the group, that we must first......

Jury Nullificatio

...Team C: Jury Nullification CJA/344 October 15, 2012 Team C: Jury Nullification Jury nullification has been a growing concern throughout the years for many Americans. Jury nullification is a constitutional doctrine that allows juries to acquit guilty defendants but who do not deserve punishment. Many believe that when this sort of action takes place the jury racially identify with the criminal defendant. There have been several cases for an example: the O.J Simpson case or the police officers in the Rodney King beating. The evidence was visible, but the verdict was not guilty. This paper includes how and if ethnicity influences courtroom proceedings and judicial practices, arguments against ethnicity-based jury nullification, contemporary examples of ethnicity based-jury nullification, and by choosing a position for or against ethnicity-based jury nullification. Ethnicity Influences and Judicial Practices There have been plenty of attempts to advance equal justice in the United States (Ward, Farrell, & Rousseau, 2009). In the criminal justice administration disparity still remains a concern. Criminal justice research on sentencing has found disparity based on defendant characteristics as gender, race, and class. There have been two changes by many individuals to secure equal justice in the court system. Implementations of sentencing guidelines, reduce bias, and increased racial and ethnic group representation among......

Pros And Cons Of The Current Distribution Of Power In The United States

...to black people being “rented” out to the plantations that had slaves before. Also, in the 1860’s and 1870’s, in 99% of communities in the South, 0 black people were registered to vote. Without the power to vote, black people would not have representation in the legislative and executive branches. An event where black people lost economic power was the “White Flight”. In response to desegregation, from the 1960’s to the 1980’s, white people moved in masses away from the inner cities to the suburbs, known as “white flight”. Since white people still had the most money, when they left the inner cities, all the money left as well. This led to poverty in inner cities. In times of poverty, prostitution and drug use spike the most. By the time of the Reagan administration, cocaine and heroin have become a massive problem, so President Reagan made the drugs illegal. As time went on, both Democrats and Republicans passed more and more laws against crimes, especially drugs. The increase of laws leads to more funding more the police force to enforce the laws. The success of the police force is measured by the number of arrests they make, and if the police happen to find money, the police get to keep it. The police end up going to inner cities frequently, because of the higher rates of prostitution and drug use there. The police arrest more black people in the inner cities, which creates confirmation bias that black people are more likely to be criminals. This confirmation bias leads to......
