Idiocy of the Indian Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act! [Sample pages]

By: Ved from Victoria Institutions

Domestic violence

Now we move on to discuss the various facets of the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act. As mentioned earlier, this discussion cannot follow the tracks of wordings of the Act, which at best is only a display of empty pedantry. Before entering into the exact premises of the discussion, there is one more item that needs mention. That is the so-called equality between men and women. It is a theme that is ferociously discussed in many nations. More in nations, where actually there is not much of an ‘equality’ issue. It is like the claims of the Blacks for right to equality with the Whites in English nations, where actually there is not much of a discrimination as that can be conceived of as in nations like India. For in nations like India, such right to equality with any superior class of people, including the rich, government officials, social superiors etc. cannot even be pondered upon, by the lower classes. In Indian feudal languages, it is a very rare occasion for anyone to be equal to anyone else, just like that. More so, the husband with the wife and the wife with the husband. In most Indian vernaculars, the wife ...

Why was that Tree in the Garden, Anyway? : Volume Revision 1

By: Joseph Stanley Robertson

Why was that tree in the garden, anyway? Stan Robertson spent his adult life trying to understand what the Bible really was saying. He decided to approach the subject with an open mind and let the Bible itself tell him rather than depending on what tradition says that it means. His book reaches unorthodox conclusions based on well developed and thoroughly justified analyses. His understanding helps reconcile many of the disconnects in traditional views. For instance, how is it that the Lord God of the Old Testament is harsh, demanding, violent, unforgiving, jealous, and destructive while the God of the New Testament is Love? This book develops the idea that each person is a duality of Spirit and flesh, and relates this to scripture. The Spiritual man and the carnal man are separated and the carnal man is subject to the Law while the Spiritual man cannot sin. ...

We Christians, as long as we feel that we must keep the Ten Commandments, are shut out of knowing the benefits of grace. Keeping the law demands all of man’s attention leaving no time for anything else. This maintains the veil over our hearts. “The letter kills but the Spirit gives life” (2 Corinthians 3:6). Even though Paul repeatedly says that we are not under the Law, we feel guilty. Guilt steals our freedom and our knowing the benefits of grace and the Divine Love that comes with it. The Commandments give opportunity for the false accuser to accuse us falsely. Then we accept the false accusation of sin and guilt. From that point on, it is our own conscience that condemns us, and thus, our own thought-power is used against our own selves. The result is depression or sickness or a feeling of being empty, useless. This latter result prevents our praying. We cannot follow both the Law and the Spirit. We cannot serve two masters....

Principles of Anarchism

By: Tim Parise

Taking an unusual approach to its topic, “Principles of Anarchism” applies classical logic and deductive reasoning to the subject of human interactions and rights. Beginning with the assumption that all human beings are equal, a concept which is termed the human equality axiom, the author goes on to draw a number of conclusions from this postulate in the manner of a Euclidean proof. These include the surprising contention that no such thing as human rights can exist, the assertion that anarchism is essentially intellectual rather than activist, and the uncomfortable suggestion that historical developments such as cities and industries are harmful to the human race rather than helpful. More centrally, though, the pamphlet argues very simply that any form of authority or government is logically incompatible with the existence of humanity. And it is the implications of this theory, rejection of which requires rejection of the equality axiom as well, which make the argument offered both novel and exceptionally relevant....

A Good Start : The Pioneer Spirit in Calgary Public Schools

By: B. Gayle

I have written this book to help us recall the original dream for education, the vision of those who built the sandstone schools and those who taught in one room buildings for the sake of education. If we are a rich province, and we are, our schools should feel it. Our kids deserve the best we can give them and not to be shelved as a low budget item. But maybe, knowing that, we would be wiser to not just ask the government or the public to find schools' better'. The secret of return to respect might be hidden in what the lady told me- we in the schools should show others what we need and where we 'd like to do more, specifically....

Deafening Silence : Media Response to the May 9th Event and its Implications Regarding the Truth of Disclosure

By: Jonathan Kolber

My intent is to establish that the media’s curiously limited coverage of the May 9, 2001 ,National Press Club briefing is highly significant. At that event, nearly two dozen witnesses stepped forward and offered their testimony as to personal knowledge of ET’s and ET-related technologies. These witnesses claimed top secret clearances and military and civilian accomplishments of the highest order. Some brandished uncensored secret documents. The world’s major media were in attendance, yet few reported what they saw, most neglecting to even make skeptical mention. How can this be? Major legal trials are decided based on weaker testimony than was provided that day. Prison sentences are meted out on less. The initial Watergate evidence was less, and the implications of this make Watergate insignificant by comparison. Yet the silence is deafening....

UFOs : What the Government Really Knows

By: Jean-Noel Bassior

Based in Crozet, Virginia, Greer's Disclosure Project has convinced hundreds of insiders, including military brass and CIA ops, to defy nondisclosure pacts. They've coughed up documents (some still classified) and signed testimonials. Greer's got it all -- in fact, he gave Peter Jennings's producers access to these bombshell revelations for the ABC special on UFOs that aired last spring. But, as the good doctor found out, you can't give this stuff to the mainstream media and expect it to air on prime time....

Hinduism Today : Swami Gopal Sharan Devacharya, Volume October/November/December, 2009: Swami Gopal Sharan Devacharya

By: Various

When you open this newest issue of Hinduism Today, get ready for some seriously good reading. Those editors in Hawaii have teamed up to create yet another how-do-they-keep-this-up magazine, full of savvy reporting, lucid writing and wowy photographs. Two features provide the tofu and potatoes main course. The first is our Hindu history lesson. Our academic associates tell us that this is tough stuff to research and write, and tougher still to get right. In 16 pages the lesson explores India's history between 1100 and 1850, a time of vicious Muslim attacks and greed-driven British conquest. In response, Hindus embraced heart-transforming bhakti. Talk about reacting to tragedy in the highest possible way. Most historians gloss over the massive slaughters, the brutal reign of outsiders who had no love of Hinduism. Our lesson does the impossible: tells the true story fairly, without demeaning the aggressors. Plus, it focuses on the armed resistance and spiritual resolve that made it possible for India to survive such dark days into modern times, while virtually every other ancient society succumbed to similar forces and disappeared. ...

Vital Interests, Virtual Threats : Reconciling International Law with Information Warfare and United States Security

By: Major Karl J. Shawhan, USAF

This study examines the history of technology and sovereignty, which reveals a model for the evolution of international law. Specifically, the history of sea, air, and space provides examples on past issues of sovereignty. A three-stage pat-tern of international law emerges. Under the assumption that sovereignty issues related to information warfare will follow the same path, the current state of sovereignty regarding information is established. To focus the study, a functional outline for international convention, the International Regime for Information Security (IRIS), is advanced. IRIS balances US domestic privacy needs with US national security demands. Specifically, technology issues regarding digital identification and encryption are weighed against civil liberties and intelligence needs....

Chicago Manual of Style

By: University of Chicago

In the 1890s, a proofreader at the University of Chicago Press prepared a single sheet of typographic fundamentals intended as a guide for the University community. That sheet grew into a pamphlet, and the pamphlet grew into a book--the first edition of the Manual of Style, published in 1906. Now in its fifteenth edition, The Chicago Manual of Style--the essential reference for authors, editors, proofreaders, indexers, copywriters, designers, and publishers in any field--is more comprehensive and easier to use than ever before. Those who work with words know how dramatically publishing has changed in the past decade, with technology now informing and influencing every stage of the writing and publishing process. In creating the fifteenth edition of the Manual, Chicago's renowned editorial staff drew on direct experience of these changes, as well as on the recommendations of the Manual's first advisory board, composed of a distinguished group of scholars, authors, and professionals....

Facsimile of the 1st Edition: Manual of Style The history of The Chicago Manual of Style spans more than one hundred years, beginning in 1891 when the University of Chicago Press first opened its doors. At that time, the Press had its own composing room with experienced typesetters who were required to set complex scientific material as well as work in such then-exotic fonts as Hebrew and Ethiopic. Professors brought their handwritten manuscripts directly to the compositors, who did their best to decipher them. The compositors then passed the proofs to the “brainery”—the proofreaders who corrected typographical errors and edited for stylistic inconsistencies. To bring a common set of rules to the process, the staff of the composing room drew up a style sheet, which was then passed on to the rest of the university community. Even at such an early stage, “the University Press style book and style sheet” was considered important enough to be preserved, along with other items from the Press’s early years, in the cornerstone of the new Press building in 1903. That sheet grew into a pamphlet, and by 1906 the pamphlet had become a bo...
