Analyses of core legal paradigms shape the characteristics of individual and distinctive legal cultures. “Comparative legal cultures are examined by a field of scholarship, which is situated at the line bordering comparative law and historical jurisprudence .” Legal cultures can be examined by reference to fundamentally different legal systems. However, such cultures can also be differentiated between systems with a shared history and basis which are now otherwise influenced by factors that encourage cultural change.
Israel: Start With Funny, Then Add Comedians - MY URBAN KVETCH
The half bathroom in my apartment in Jerusalem is your basic W.C.: there's a toilet, and a door, and a window that opens onto one of two balconies. But there's also something else there: a faucet, about mid-calf length from the floor, for no apparent reason. And - until I fixed it a few days through brute bicep strength - it dripped. Not enough to cause a flood, or even notice for the first few days: but after I put a receptacle under it, I can tell you that it collects one honey jar of water every 1.5 to 2 days.  I'm telling you this for two reasons: first, to show you that Israel is quirky, and ... market research, surveys and trends
School prayer at awards night. . . is this legal? – Education ...
So Im a Senior at a normal public high school in Texas and I was invited to go to awards night for graduating Cum Laude. There were about 200 other students getting awards from teachers and scholarships, and there were also hundreds of parents. Before we started the awards ceremony, one of the student council members said “please bow ur heads for the prayer” and started a prayer (Dear Lord…). I am agnostic and a fellow student sitting next to me was Muslim. Ofcourse I didn’t pray. I felt really uncomfortable and later on, a lot of non christian students were debating on whether it was right or not. Is it ... market research, surveys and trends

n the questions of whether compulsory service in the Hitler Youth was "introduced" in 1941, and of whether the new pope would have been enrolled in such an organization before 1941, consider this excerpt from Michael H. Kater, Hitler Youth , Harvard U. Press 2004, p.23: "Of the three statutory provisions concerning the H[itler]J[ugend] before September 1939, only the last one called for compulsory membership of boys and girls aged ten to eighteen.

Blair 'needed support of UN' to invade Iraq
TONY Blair was told by his top aide that there was “no question” of Britain joining America in invading Iraq without United Nations support, previously secret documents have revealed. Jonathan Powell, the then Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff, assured a meeting at No 10 three months before the war began that it was unlikely the US would proceed with the invasion alone. He set out three scenarios for the response to UN Security Council resolution 1441, which was passed in November 2002 and paved the way for the return of weapons inspectors to Iraq. The third possible situation was that America became “frustrated with ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Resisting the cuts (3): localism, legalities, loopholes, labour
trying to set out some ideas on how the left might move past the rhetoric of how important it is to resist the coalition’s cuts, and start preparing actually to resist the cuts. The first post concerned itself with advising against the kind of action that can be comforting for the left, but which isn’t actually very effective.  This includes the careful organisation of  mass demonstrations, often in London, where everyone turns up on coaches, is carefully controlled by the police, waves some banners, listens to Tony Benn or some other venerable notable, and goes home again.  All this takes a lot of time, energy and ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Chairman Genachowski announced that he would ask his fellow Commissioners to join him in seeking public comment on a proposed light-touch framework to address the serious legal issues posed by the Comcast case and to preserve the FCC’s traditional deregulatory treatment of broadband communications services. There is a longstanding consensus that the government should not regulate the Internet, and that basic consumer protections apply to broadband access services – the “on-ramps” consumers use to access the Internet. A court decision last month in a case called Comcast v. FCC cast serious doubt on the legal foundation for those ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

Parents agree to sell my home, is that legal or not? - Yahoo! Answers
Eleven years ago, I was an unwed and unemployed full time college student. Over eighteen indeed, but clearly still dependant on the support of my parents. As you might imagine, my experience and understanding with regard to finances were limited. Consequently, I agreed to whatever they decided or as they advised. When my aunt and uncle sold me their house, my parents accompanied me an attorney's office. I signed my name a few times and left. I did not even keep a copy of any paperwork. Later I chose to purchase the lot of land directly behind my new house; my parents were once again present. I very much appreciate the ...
Is it illegal to download torrent files?
Torrent files are used by bitTorrent file sharing and downloading technology. Are they illegal? No. But something else might be. • No it's not. BUT WAIT ... Before you run off and start downloading last week's bootlegged theatrical movie release, you really need to understand why that particular download and others like it probably are illegal. • (Caveat: I'm basing this on my knowledge of the current state of Copyright law. Please, realize I'm no lawyer, and this shouldn't be taken as legal advice. This is mostly just common sense with the high level concepts we're talking about.) " ...
