BOOK REVIEW ROME I REGULATION Pocket Commentary Edited by Franco Ferrari SELLIER EUROPEAN LAW PUBLISHERS (SELP) NYU: Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law ISBN: 978 3 86653 241 0 www.sellier.de A USEFUL FIRST REFERENCE TO THE ROME 1 REGULATION ON CONTRACTUAL OBLIGATIONS -- BY AN EXPERT TEAM OF CONTRIBUTORS An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers For students (primarily graduates and undergraduates) and practitioners professionally involved in European Union law in general -- and in the area of conflict of laws in particular -- this handy pocket-sized but comprehensive and detailed text is quite a find. It is the second volume in the increasingly well known ‘selp’ series of Pocket Commentaries published by Sellier European Law Publishers. Bearing in mind the more than occasional abstruseness of European Union regulations, this is an excellent publishing initiative which is very handy for practitioners, especially international lawyers, to know about. This particular volume offers concise yet detailed and instructive commentary specifically on the Rome 1 Regulation. The twelve learned contributors, including the editor Franco Ferrari, are either expert practitioners with well-known international law firms, (Baker McKenzie for example), or distinguished academics from leading universities. Franco Ferrari, for instance, is Professor of Law and Director of the Center for Transnational Litigation, Arbitration and Commercial Law at New York University School of Law – and has also served as a Legal Officer at the United Nations Office of Legal Affairs, International Trade Law Branch. Similar to other books in this series, this commentary is meant to provide ‘a first reference’ to a particular instrument; in this case, Rome 1. Just to get technical, Rome 1 is the Regulation (EC) No593/2008 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 17 June 2008 on the law applicable to contractual obligations. Rome 1, in other words, is about contracts. Aiming at achieving a desirable level of predictability and legal certainty for the parties to any given transaction, it sets forth (as the editor explains) ‘a set of uniform private international law rules for (most of) the member states of the EU.’ One can see the overall objective here. The Regulation is part of a general movement toward the harmonization of law across Europe -- and is particularly applicable to transactions which are linked, not just to one country, but to two or more within the European Union. For those engaged in the study, or application of European Law, this book with its thorough and extensive footnoting (containing a mine of references) is a useful acquisition. It does presuppose some familiarity, in fact considerable knowledge, of this particular aspect of European law on the part of the reader and is therefore perfect for researchers or practitioners seeking an enriched, in-depth and certainly authoritative examination of the Rome 1 Regulation. The publication date is cited as at 2015.

THE ROME I AND ROME II REGULATIONS- GET THE FULL PICTURE OF THEIR LEGAL POSITION THEIR INTERPRETATION AND APPLICATION An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers If you are a practitioner or student dealing with, or planning to deal with cross-border or global business, (which, increasingly, is just about all of us) youll find this book an extremely useful reference to have on your shelf. Logically structured in three parts and written in accessible English, this important text does what it says in the title, guiding you through the complexities of The European Private International Law of Obligations. To cite only one issue among thousands: which countrys laws should be applied in any given cross-border relationship or transaction and in what circumstances? For instance, in the case of an English worker employed by a Dutch company on an oil rig in Nigerian territorial waters injured by the negligence of a fellow employee, which system of law is applicable? Well, you see the problem -- and the judgments in this case in particular have been much criticized, which is why one of the books more intriguing chapters is entitled The Country Whose Law is to be Applied. The books original title for its first two editions was: The European Contracts Convention: The Rome Convention on the Law Applicable to Contracts. As the Preface explains, the new title was made necessary for this new third edition by the development of case law on the Convention, both at the national level and within the Court of Justice. The authors were careful to prepare the new edition only after the conversion of the Rome Convention into a regulation and the entry into force of the parallel regulation of the law applicable to non-contractual obligations. The new title better describes the wider compass of the work, which will certainly help you interpret, apply and advise upon the Rome I and Rome II Regulations. Expert commentary is provided throughout on the scope, principles and application of the rules of private international law governing the construction of contracts. Also covered are the new rules governing torts, including product liability, liability for breach of competition rules, environmental damage, unjust enrichment, negtiotorum gestio and culpa in contrahendo. Consumer contracts, employment contracts, mandatory rules, ordre publicand more are considered. For ease of reference, there are ten tables of cases, including UK and foreign cases, cases before the European Court of Justice -- both numerical and alphabetical -- tables of International Court and Tribunal Casestables of UK Statutes and Statutory Instruments, Foreign Statutestables of European Community Legislation and of International and EC Treaties and Conventions -- plus, the Table of the Principal Conventions. For all those involved in, or advising upon cross border issues within the EU, this book is indispensible for the EC and EU lawyer of the twenty-first century as we all grapple with the wider compass of legal obligations in Europe.

Financial Markets (2011) (ECON 252) As the starting point for this lecture, Professor Shiller contrasts the view of economics as the theory of the allocation of scarce resources with the view of economics as the study of exchange. After a discussion of the difference between brokers and dealers, he outlines the history of securities exchanges from ancient Rome, to the Amsterdam Stock Exchange and Jonathan's Coffee House in London, until the formation of the New York Stock Exchange. He complements this historic account with an overview of securities exchanges all over the world, covering India, China, Brazil, and Mexico. An example of a limit order book allows him to elaborate on the mechanics of trading at the National Association of Securities Dealers Automatic Quotation System (NASDAQ). Subsequently, he turns his attention to the growing importance of program trading and high frequency trading, but also discusses their impact on the stock market crash from October 19, 1987, as well as on the Flash Crash from May 6, 2010. When talking about fairness in financial markets, particularly with regard to the relation between private investors and brokers, he discusses the National Market System (NMS), the Intermarket Trading System (ITS), and consolidated quotation systems. He concludes this lecture with some reflections on the operations of dealers, addressing the role of inside information and the Gambler's Ruin problem. 00:00 - Chapter 1.

The distinction between establishment and services is based on the idea that establishment is more permanent whereas services are more temporary in nature. Establishment mainly falls under Art. 49 with 49(1) allowing for primary and secondary establishment and (2) prohibiting unequal or discriminatory treatment. The law in this area is directly effective as per Reyners . Equivalent qualifications across member states are interpreted broadly as per Heylens  and also Directive 2005/36 Meanwhile article 49(2) has been broadened beyond discrimination to include any unjustified restriction on the freedom of establishment. The main case in this are is Gebhard  that allows for restrictions only if they meet four criteria: 1) Non-discriminatory 2) Justified 3) Needed to secure an objective 4) Don't go beyond what is necessary to achieve that objective A national can rely on Art. 49 with respect to their own member state only when they have exercised the freedom of movement themselves as per Knoors  Article 54 states companies should be treated in the same way as individuals and although company law can vary from state to state the ECJ has placed a lot of focus on achieving the overall objective of freedom of establishment as seen in Centros  and Überseering . However once a company is established in a Member State they are then subject to that country's rules as regards incorporation etc. as per Daily Mail  and Cartesio  The liberalisation provided by Art. 54 means that it can be difficult to crack down on tax avoidance as seen in Cadbury Schweppes . Freedom of services is based on the temporary nature of the work rather than the infrastructure or, as per Commission v Portugal , the period of time. Art. 57 loosely defines services and 58 excludes other services that are covered in other parts of the treaty. Art. 56 also has direct effect as per Van Binsbergen . Similarly there also has to be an inter-state element as seen in Deliège  Also covered is the freedom to receive services; Luisi & Carbone  The service does have to be provided for remuneration and this line can become blurred in relation to certain healthcare systems that are a hybrid between user and government payments Some controversial services such as abortion, gambling and marijuana can still be considered services (Grogan ) but can be subject to national rules that provide a proportional and non-discriminatory restriction (Zenatti ). Taking a broad definition it is even possible that certain social benefits may also fall within the definition; Cowan . Art. 62 allows for restrictions on policy, security and health grounds. Beyond this Van Binsbergen  sets out the conditions for any restriction imposed by a Member State: 1) Pursuit of a legitimate public interest 2) Applied without discrimination 3) Proportionate 4) Respects fundamental rights (Carpenter ) This freedom can be controversial as it allows greater liberalisation in the labour market at the expense of employee rights. This came to a head in Laval  although this judgment has been tempered somewhat by the Rome I Regulation. Restrictions on tax grounds can be allowed to prevent fraud but not for other, broader reasons; Danner . Non-discriminatory restrictions can also be caught if they are a hinderance to the freedom of services (Alpine Investments ) and Gebhard  also applies within this context. The Bolkenstein Directive sought to achieve greater harmonisation by focusing on the country of origin but after protest this was watered down and so only mainly deals with a range of procedural and administrative issues.

I Remixed this from MaxBliss. Thanks. Very interesting view of a huge orchestrated fraud.... the Vikings were growing barley in Greenland up until the 14thC ...then there was a mini ice age and then it gets warmer....the Earth goes through many cycles and not to do with mans activities. Yes, the industrialists and globalists leading the world have interfered with nature and steered humanity in the activities...we the people did not invent oil rigs...there are practical alternatives to oil...but the filthy obscenely rich controllers cannot make profit from HHO and free electricity generation from Tesla technology that JP Morgen denied the world.... however global warming is used to push toward a totalitarian government state, a one world government not run by elected people from we the people. Using war and economic tactics the worlds obscenely rich have hell-leets of the Committee of 300, have been working toward one world tyranny. Global warming mentioned in The report from Iron Mountain and by the Banksters run NGO, The Club of Rome is used for taxes and regulations. Also the solution to their invented problem is Geoengineering, a decade's old program to combat this fictitious problem which is a cover for the weather control program talked about by JFK in 1961 addressing the UN. With a full time program running in many countries since WW2, the global warming story is a cover for the extreme weather events as the experiments continue, led by USA, UK NATO, NOAA, UN etc... etc... Kissenger's devastating strategies of using " Food as a weapon" 1974 has brought countless deaths and misery to the third world can be applied to the West and the likely opposition from we the people. Food prices are set to soar, as if it was exorbitant now as weather weaponry manipulates harvest yields and supply...massive profits from weather derivative markets....and stand by GMO alu resist crops and trees to replace the collapsing eco system due to toxic overload from continuing chemtrailing aka geoengineering-SRM....look at your plants and trees carefully were you are? Many scientist did oppose the global warming myth and were outcast, anyone speaking out about this gloabl warming fraud can have their career's ruined such as Britains favourite TV Botanist ...David Bellomy... ousted by the BBC and lampooned by the media for daring to point out the obvious....plants need CO2 and CO2 does not drive climate. Climategate, the UK Research centre at the University of East Anglia was 3 times caught by hackers skewing much of their data to fit a preferred model ....There is a concerted effort to convince the world that global warming is a threat...how have Al Gore's inconvenient truths manaifested...? It is getting colder...maybe because of covert geoengineering...? The truth needs to come out....and the one world totalitarian government dismantled and measures taken to ensure such mass deceptions can never happen again.

Medium shot electoral rally, from right Gianfranco Fini (leader of National Alliance party), Gianni Alemanno (new Rome mayor), Silvio Berlusconi (leader of Freedom People Party and next Italian Prime Minister) STORYLINE Immigrants on Tuesday were warily awaiting the first actions of Rome's new right-wing mayor, Gianni Alemanno, who has promised to crack down on crime following a spate of incidents blamed on immigrants. Alemanno sought to quickly reassure his electorate that he would work for everyone's benefit following his election on Monday. "He is the mayor of Rome, he is not the dictator of Italy so whatever he does he is limited by the democratic constitution and regulations," said Franco Pavoncello, President of the John Cabot University. "I think he will certainly have a certain attitude towards petty criminality and that kind of nomadic camps and whatnot but obviously there are rules that he has to respect." Much of the mayoral campaign focused on crime and Alemanno, who came up the political ranks from the youth branch of a neo-Fascist party, blamed the previous centre-left administrations for allegedly tolerating crime by clandestine immigrants. Caution prevailed on Tuesday among residents of Esquilino, a busy shopping area heavily populated by immigrants near Rome's main railroad station. Some appeared to welcome a tougher stance on illegal. "We Filipinos are not so very much afraid because we are all good citizens here in Italy", explained Nena Ty Gunda, a 54-year-old Filipino who runs a food kiosk at the open-air market. "We have all work and we work honestly so that is not a big problem." Soon-Sub Chun, an immigrant from North Korea, felt the same. "I am against illegal immigration too, but according to me there should be not a complete closure. We have to find a way to improve the life of these people," he said.

The cradle of Lake Nemi, near Rome, in the Lazio region of Italy. Nemi is a valuable pearl of the Castelli Romani, in the Lazio region of Italy, 30kms from the centre of Rome. We promote your City in the World! www.merchantissimo.com NEMI From Wikipedia Nemi is a town and comune in the province of Rome (central Italy), on the Alban Hills overlooking Lake Nemi. It is 6 km (4 mi) NW of Velletri and about 30 km (18 mi) southeast of Rome. The town's name derives from the Latin nemus Aricinum, or "grove of Ariccia": the latter is a small town a quarter of the way around the lake. In antiquity the area had no town, but the grove was the site of one of the most famous of Roman cults and temples: that of Diana Nemorensis, a study of which served as the seed for Sir James Frazer's seminal work on the anthropology of religion, The Golden Bough. In 1514 Marcantonio I Colonna gave to Nemi the "Statuti e Capituli del Castello di Nemi", the first city statute with rules and regulations to observe.Later on, possibly in connection with this cult (nothing substantial is known of the matter), Caligula built several very large and costly luxury barges for use on the lake. One ship was a shrine dedicated to ceremonies for the Egyptian Isis cult or the cult of Diana Nemorensis, designed to be towed, and the other was a pleasure boat with buildings on it. After Caligula's overthrow, the boats were scuttled. The ships were rediscovered during the Renaissance, when architect Leon Battista Alberti is reported to have attempted to raise the ships by roping them to buoyant barrels. While ingenious, this method proved unsuccessful, because of extensive rotting. The boats were finally salvaged from 1929 to 1932 under orders of Mussolini. This was just one of many attempts to relate himself to the Roman Emperors of the past. The ships were exposed by lowering the lake level using underground canals that were dug by the ancient Romans. The excavation was led by Guido Ucelli and was reported in Le Nave di Nemi by Guido Ucelli (Rome, 1950). They were destroyed by fire on 31 May 1944, it is disputed whether this was done by defeated German forces retreating from Italy at the end of World War II or accidentally by squatters taking refuge in the museum building. Surviving remnants from the excavations as well as replicas are now displayed in the Museo Nazionale Romano at the Palazzo Massimo in Rome. The ship hulls survive today at Museo delle Navi Romane, Nemi.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Can we imagine how poetry is connected with Technology, Entertainment and Design? What is the importance of poetry in the modern world? What can we learn and how can we benefit from the expression through poetry? Titos Patrikios, one of the greatest Greek poets, explains how poetry is an expression of life and how it works as a bridge to connect people, societies, the past and the future of our world. Titos Patrikios, son of the actors Spiros and Lela Patrikios, was born in Athens. He graduated from Varvakeios School in 1946 and immediately continued his studies at the University of Athens Law School, practicing law after his graduation for a few years. During the German Occupation he was active in the Resistance Movement, initially enlisted in EPON (United Panhellenic Organization of Youth) and then in ELAS (Greek People's Liberation Army). In 1944, he was sentenced to death by collaborators with the German occupiers, but his sentence was annulled at the last minute. During his military service, he was exiled in the islands of Makronissos (1951-1952) and Ai Stratis (1952-1953), from where he was allowed to return to Athens. Between 1959-1964, he studied Sociology at the ""Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes"" of Paris and participated in research performed by the National Center for Scientific Research of France. He returned to Greece, but as soon as the dictatorship of Papadopoulos was established he sought refuge again in Paris, where he participated in various protests against the illegal regime, and worked as a consultant at the headquarters of UNESCO in Paris and FAO in Rome. In 1975, he went back to Greece and worked as a lawyer, sociologist and literary translator. In 1982, he re-assumed the role he had before 1967 in the Greek Center of Social Sciences. In Athens, he also worked at the Center for Marxist Studies. He was first introduced in the world of literature in 1943 with the publication of one of his poems in the literary magazine ""Xekinima tis Niotis"". In 1954, his first poetry collection was published entitled ""Chomatodromos"". He was a founding member of the literary magazine ""Epitheorisi Technis"", where he published many articles and reviews after 1954, while many of his essays were included in compiled versions of the magazine. He was also involved in the area of translation (texts by Stendhal, Aragon, Majakowskij, Neruda, Gogol, Garaudy, Lukács) and prose, while most of his studies in sociology are written in French. His works have been translated in French, Flemish, German and Dutch. In 1994, he received the Greek national poetry prize for his entire oeuvre.

CLICK HERE - http://activeterium.com/1DCR - FOR MORE FREE DOCUMENTARIES How Banks Work Documentary The very first banks were probably the religious temples of the ancient world. In them were stored gold in the form of easy to carry compressed plates. Their owners justly felt that temples were the safest places to store their gold as they were constantly attended, well built and were sacred, thus deterring would-be thieves. There are extant records of loans from the 18th Century BC in Babylon that were made by temple priests to merchants. Ancient Greece holds further evidence of banking. Greek temples as well as private and civic entities conducted financial transactions such as loans, deposits, currency exchange, and validation of coinage. Interestingly, there is evidence too of credit, whereby in return for a payment from a client, a Money Lender in one Greek port would write a credit note for the client who could "cash" the note in another city, saving the client the danger of carting coinage with him on his journey. Ancient Rome perfected the administrative aspect of banking and saw greater regulation of financial institutions and financial practices. Charging interest on loans and paying interest on deposits became more highly developed and competitive. The ascent of Christianity in Rome and its influence restricted banking, as the charging of interest and usury were seen as immoral. Jewish entrepreneurs, free of Christian taboos about money, established themselves in the provision of financial services increasingly demanded by the expansion of European trade and commerce. The modern Western economic and financial heritage begins as early as the establishment of Jonathan's Coffee-House, which later became the London Stock Exchange. This became a base for stock traders expelled from the Royal Exchange. In 1698 John Casting, began publishing a twice weekly newsletter of share and commodity prices, which he sold at Jonathan's. One of the oldest London Banking institutions still operating today is Barclay Bank, which was founded by John Frame and Thomas Gould in 1690. The bank was renamed to Barclay by Frame's son-in-law, James Barclay, in 1736. With the coming of democratic capitalism, around the time of Adam Smith (1776) there was a massive growth in the banking industry. Within the new system of ownership and investment, moneyholders were able to reduce the State's intervention in economic affairs, remove barriers to competition, and, in general, allow anyone willing to work hard enough-and who also has access to capital-to become a capitalist. It wasn't until over 100 years after Adam Smith, however, that companies began to apply his policies in large scale and shift the financial power from England to America. By the early 1900s New York was beginning to emerge as the world's leading financial center. Companies and individuals acquired large investments in (other) companies in the US and Europe, resulting in the first true market integration. This comparatively high level of market integration proved especially beneficial when World War I came-both sides in the conflict sought funds from the United States, by issuing new securities and selling existing holdings, though the Allied Powers raised by far the larger amounts. Being a lender to the world resulted in the largest growth of a financial economy to that point. Global banking and capital market services proliferated during the 1980s and 1990s as a result of a great increase in demand from companies, governments, and financial institutions, but also because financial market conditions were on the whole, bullish. Nevertheless, in recent years, the dominance of U.S. financial markets has been disappearing and there has been an increasing interest in foreign stocks. The extraordinary growth of foreign financial markets results from both large increases in the pool of savings in foreign countries, such as Japan, and, especially, the deregulation of foreign financial markets, which has enabled them to expand their activities. Thus, corporations and bank have started seeking investment opportunity abroad. Such growing internationalization and opportunity in financial services has entirely changed the competitive landscape, as now many banks have demonstrated a preference for the "universal banking" model so prevalent in Europe. Universal banks are free to engage in all forms of financial services, make investments in client companies, and function as much as possible as a "one-stop" supplier of both retail and wholesale financial services.

The world is in the middle of a nearly unprecedented economic crisis, one which went to the very heart of the global capitalist system. Michel Camdessus Former Managing Director, IMF This crisis has blown up really at the center of the system, Wall Street, and has immediately had universal repercussions. While the Mexican crisis of 1994, 1995, while the Asian crisis of 1997 and the following years have been more localized in parts of the world with less global repercussions than this one. Michel Camdessus was managing director of the International Monetary Fund for 13 years. An economic adviser for the Pontifical Council of Justice and Peace, he says the root of the problem is greed and a lack of ethics. Michel Camdessus Former Managing Director, IMF What has taken place also is a kind of ethical global problem. During years and years, we have allowed all the sound warnings which were given since Adam Smith to the financial actors, namely to moderate their financial appetites, to care about their community, to care about their neighbors, all these principles have been forgotten. We must reestablish a kind of global ethical system which is just missing. And for that, all institutions, states, cultural leaders, churches have a role to play. In addition to ethical reforms, Camdessus says governments need to put in a new system of regulations and financial architecture to monitor the markets, to prevent this sort of problem from ever repeating itself. He also says that individuals can do their part as well, to help fight the financial and environmental crises. He sees the two problems as linked together. Michel Camdessus Former Managing Director, IMF Both of them find their origin in the overexploitation of the natural resources or of the economic mechanisms. Well, all of that means that all of us must rethink our consumption model. We must all be more conscious that in the years to come we will have more responsibilities for supporting the poorest countries in the world. Camdessus says that while the Pope is not an economist, he and the Church can provide direction, moral leadership and hope to the world during these tough economic times. The Pope also has a new encyclical on social issues about to be published next month, in which he may talk about the economy. . --------------------- Suscríbete al canal: http://smarturl.it/RomeReports Visita nuestra web: http://www.romereports.com/ ROME REPORTS, www.romereports.com, is an independent international TV News Agency based in Rome covering the activity of the Pope, the life of the Vatican and current social, cultural and religious debates.

Free legal advice uk: http://www.suzannedibble.com/what/speaking/ Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/smallbusinesslawexpert Transcript: Welcome to this training of the new Consumer Contracts Regulations 2013 that came into effect on the 13th of June 2014. You have hopefully already watched video 1 that was about the right to cancel and today we’re going to be moving on to the 2nd most important thing which is about information requirements. Lots of information is actually already required under the existing law (even before the new Consumer Contracts Regulations) and there are about 15 areas of different information that you have to provide in your terms of business including (i) the main characteristics of goods or services, (ii) the identity of the trader, and (iii) the total price payable. You should have already have those 15 or so areas of information requirements already contained in your existing terms of business. However the new Regulations have added another 13 requirements that you must provide to the customer. So what are these additional information requirements? So before we get into that, let me just remind you of who I am. My name is Suzanne Dibble, and I’m a multi-award winning business law expert. I have worked with hundreds of small business clients to make sure that their businesses are properly protected. I’m a recognized expert in this area and regularly have organizations, such as Barclays, approach me to be a guest expert on their small business site to keep small businesses up to date with things just like this - with new changes in the law that are really going to impact on their business. The new information requirements (which must be provided before the customer enters into the contract) have a number of different levels as to how you need to provide the information. Some of the information you need to provide in a “clear and comprehensible manner”, then there is a further set of information that you need to provide in a “clear and prominent manner directly before the order is placed”, and then finally, there’s some other information that you need to provide “clearly and legibly at the latest at the beginning of the ordering process”. So it’s quite complicated as to what information you need to provide and how you actually need to provide it. The information that you have to provide “in a clear and comprehensible manner” is actually 24 pieces of information. You have to provide this information to your customers before they enter into the contract and that includes things like your place of business. This is a new change that has come in with the new law - previously, you could have just put in your geographical address which could have been your registered office, but now you have to put in your place of business and the guidance we’ve just received from the European Commission says that the place of business is the place where the essential decisions concerning the traders general management are taken and where the functions of its central administration carried out. So if you work from home then it is clear that your home is where the essential decisions are taken and where functions of central administration are carried out. This means that you are going to have to disclose your home address before the customer places the contract. You’re also going to have to add in things like your complaint handling policy and the existence of relevance codes of conduct. From the the guidance we have of the moment it would seem that “in a clear and comprehensible manner” means that it’s okay to have a link to your terms of business in a place where your customer can access it before they finally press the “order now button” and actually enter into the contract.

Civilian casualties is a military term describing civilian persons killed, injured, or imprisoned by military action. More Hitchens: https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?ie=UTF8&tag=tra0c7-20&linkCode=ur2&linkId=3ed09092baaaf5dd02996d1407287105&camp=1789&creative=9325&index=books&keywords=hitchens Civilian casualties can be associated with the outcome of any form of military action regardless of whether civilians were targeted directly or not. This differs from collateral damage which specifically applies to only unintentional effects of military action including unintended casualties. Civilian casualties therefore include victims of atrocities such as the Nanking Massacre committed on a civilian population where hundreds of thousands of men were slaughtered, while girls and women ages ranging from 10 to 70 were systematically raped and/or killed by Japanese soldiers in 1937. Another example is the My Lai Massacre (Vietnamese: thảm sát Mỹ Lai) that was committed by United States soldiers during the Vietnam War on hundreds of unarmed Vietnamese civilians. Such military action, which has the sole purpose of inflicting civilian casualties, is illegal under modern rules of war, and may be considered a war crime or crime against humanity. Other kinds of civilian casualties may involve the targeting of civilian populations for military purposes, such as the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which killed over 150,000 civilians. The legality of such action was at the time governed by international law found in the Hague Regulations on Land Warfare of 1907, which state "the attack or bombardment, by whatever means, of towns, villages, dwellings, or buildings which are undefended is prohibited". Also relevant, were the Hague Draft Rules of Air Warfare of 1922--1923, which state "air bombardment is legitimate only when is directed against a military objective." The Rome Statute defines "intentionally directing attacks against the civilian population" to be illegal, but only came into effect on July 1, 2002 and has not been ratified by every country. Many modern nations' views on the ethics of civilian casualties align with the Just War theory, which advocates a system of proportionality. An act of war is deemed proportional in Just War theory if the overall destruction expected from the use of force is outweighed by the projected good to be achieved. This view is a war-adapted version of utilitarianism, the moral system which advocates that the morally correct action is the one that does the most good. However, moral philosophers often contest this approach to war. Such theorists advocate absolutism, which holds there are various ethical rules that are, as the name implies, absolute. One such rule is that non-combatants cannot be attacked because they are, by definition, not partaking in combat; to attack non-combatants anyway, regardless of the expected outcome, is to deny them agency. Thus, by the absolutist view, only combatants can be attacked. The philosopher Thomas Nagel advocates this abolutist rule in his essay War and Massacre. Finally, the approach of pacifism is the belief that war of any kind is morally unjust. Pacifists sometimes extend humanitarian concern not just to enemy civilians but also to combatants, especially conscripts. The civilian casualty ratio in an armed conflict is the ratio of civilian casualties to combatant casualties or total casualties. The measurement can apply either to casualties inflicted by a particular belligerent or to casualties in the conflict as a whole. According to a 2001 study by the International Committee of the Red Cross, the civilian to soldier death ratio in wars fought since the mid-20th century has been 10:1, meaning ten civilian deaths for every soldier death. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Civilian_casualties

In 2008, I conducted an interview with Dr. Eric Oliver, author of "Fat Politics," about why some people want to label obesity as a disease. Now that the AMA has officially declared obesity a disease (which it isn't), I thought this collection of clips from the interview might be interesting. I don't have time to keep up with comments on YouTube (which attracts a lot of trolls), so I'm disabling them. If you really want to comment on the video, go to the fathead-movie blog and have at it. The corresponding post is titled "It's Official: Obesity Is Now A Disease."

http://www.cato.org/events/living-guns-liberals-case-second-amendment In the aftermath of the tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut, firearm regulation has understandably moved to the forefront of our national political debate. Even before Newtown, the tragic mass shootings in Arizona and Colorado, and the botched Operation Fast and Furious, had kept this issue in the news. But many now are indicating that this tragedy, its nature and how it has stunned our nation, pushes the issue to a tipping point. While America has a tradition of private gun ownership for self-defense and sport, what can be done about the growing conflict between an individual's right to own guns and the public's desire to be safe from gun violence? The Second Amendment has long been one of the most divisive issues in American society. While there have been few national legal developments since the Supreme Court's rulings in District of Columbia v. Heller (2008) and McDonald v. Chicago (2010), states have been adjusting their laws — and public facilities changing their security systems — ever since the Columbine school shooting in 1999, and litigation continues in the lower courts. Unfortunately, national discussions of gun policy often devolve into sound bites, dueling headlines, lobbying campaigns, but accomplish little. Polarized, entrenched positions fail to constructively grapple with the fundamental policy question: How do we keep guns away from violent criminals? Should we focus on mental illness, background checks, assault weapons, or something else? In Living with Guns, former New York Times reporter and editor Craig Whitney re-examines the right to bear arms, why it was enshrined in the Bill of Rights, and how it came to be misunderstood. Whitney proposes pragmatic solutions to control gun violence rather than guns, and ideas to keep them out of the hands of the people whom everyone agrees shouldn't have them. Commenting on this timely new book will be Alan Gura and Alan Morrison, who were on opposite sides of the Heller case.

edited by Emanuela Pendola & Antonella Andiuolo Lumsa News Rome. In the ex-Somalian embassy building 140 refugees live in extreme and bad conditions. After the fall of the Siad Barre's regime and with the outbreak of the war, the government of Mogadishu wasn't able to finance its Italian office anymore. So from 1991, the embassy has become a desert place. The three-storey building, in Villini Street, is now a permanent shelter for these people, even for sleeping. They obtained regular documents to stay in Italy and they're asking for asylum. They should have access to special assistance programmes. But in this crumbling building with its rooms converted into dormitories, the Somalis are sleeping on mattresses and boxes on the floor, in the midst of waste materials and rats. In the civil service jargon, Somalis who live there are called "Dublin's cases". In 2003, the introduction of the Dublin II Regulation law has turned the building in Villini street into 'Dublin's House'. The place is now the official house for those people who are being deported from other European members, with a far more structured and efficient asylum system. The immigration law states that asylum seekers have to return to the country where they first made their application for asylum, and here many have left their fingerprints. The odyssey of the 140 Somalian citizens, encamped for many years in the ex-embassy building, point out the lack of resources concerning the system reception: the scant funds, the shortage of a complete law regarding this area, and the drop of the protection's requests.
