Obesity is becoming a worldwide epidemic. Right now, the numbers of obese persons is rapidly rising, with about 17% of EU residents and 32% of Americans being considered obese. According to the Centers for Disease Control, by 2010, the forecast is that the percentage of obese persons in the U.S. will be at 40%. Obesity is defined as a bodily condition marked by excessive generalized disposition and storage of fat. (Merriam-Webster, 2008) Another definition involves the calculation of one’s BMI (body mass index). Body mass index is a number calculated from a person’s weight and height. While BMI is not a direct measure of body fat, it is considered to be a reliable number to ascertain a person’s body fat. A person is considered obese if his or her BMI is 30 or higher. Obesity once thought of as a poor lifestyle choice is now considered a complex disease. (Anonymous, 2008) Obesity is considered a disorder of the central nervous system. (Somers, 2008) Some of the side effects of obesity include cardiovascular disease, diabetes and can even be attributed to premature death in individuals. Obesity can be related to one’s eating habits as well as genetics. For many years, the standard method used to treat obesity was a combination of diet modification and exercise. Simple enough if one thinks about it, one must simply burn more calories than one ingests and weight loss is the result. But, it is not always that easy. A person has to be of the right mindset to begin such a regimen while following through is another hurdle to jump. Other options include acupuncture, “fat farms” or spas, hypnosis, surgical intervention which is the most radical of treatments, and the latest…...

...flaw of the law is very common in Bangladesh. In fact there is no flaw of any laws, but the way you use it. Here the proper word can be used as abusing laws. People misuse the law for their own benefit. But the consequence of abusing or misusing law is very dangerous. It is not only a common practice in Bangladesh but also in other developed countries. But the scenario we have here is much more threatening as well as immoral in our society. Actually what we do by misusing law, we do not care about the consequences. If we take a closer look to our society, we will find that there are many areas where the violations of law are very common. Misinterpretation of different sections is also available and which mainly leads to the flaw of law. By doing this the rate of corruption goes up. This law loop hole creates section violations, bribery, custodial death and others. The topic talks about a vast area which simply cannot be discussed easily. There are many problems that we have in our society. Here I have narrowed down the topic and will discuss about Section 54, 167 and 61 of Code of Criminal Procedure 1898. All these sections talks about arrest without warrant and detention rules. In our country, these sections are misinterpreted randomly and as a result it violates sections and makes way for corruptions. Actually political and some muscle man of our society does these unlawful things in the name of law to eliminate their obstacles legally. There is a case which......

...Article Review Warren Combs LAW/421 April 15, 2013 Article Review In today’s business world, the use of technology has changed how transactions take place between consumers and businesses. The capability to do business on the Internet has opened the gates for companies to grow at faster rates by making available to consumers, products, and services on demand.

Protecting intellectual property for these types of business transactions has proven to be more challenging than the startup of e-commerce trade. Legislatures have begun to educate themselves with priority, on the differences in commerce and e-commerce; but the effects from lack of proper ethics and security has caused many lawmakers to scramble for answers.

...Christopher Nieto Article Review Mr. Michael John 10-14-2013 Video Streams into the Mainstream The widespread adoption of streaming video on the Internet has become the major frontier for online multimedia. Graphics, animation, and audio technologies have proliferated on the Internet for years. Streaming video—in which viewers can begin watching content almost as soon as it starts downloading—is developed as a mainstream technology (Lawton, 2013). The portion of US companies using streaming media has doubled, from nine to 17%, since last year. According to IEE Computer Society, the factors that drove this trend was the increased adoption of broadband services that speed Internet access for users and the content providers simply able to speed the delivery process (pp. 12-17). The main three players are Apple’s QuickTime 4, Microsoft’s Windows Media 7, and RealNetworks’ RealVideo 8. Streaming video faces several key technical and business challenges. The key technical issues include Internet congestion, interoperability, and compression. Internet congestion slows the service for those with lower bandwidth connections. Interoperability becomes an issue because streaming-video technology has no standardization to become widespread for any user capability. Compression is an issue because data-compression algorithms are critical to providing quality video at lower transmission speeds (Lawton, 2013). The ramification from these issues starts with intellectual property,......

Two Westchester County Hospital had overbilled the Medicaid program of $70 million dollars by improperly approving home care for Medicaid patients. The Attorney Generals Medicaid Fraud control Unit found out that the two hospitals were billing Medicaid beyond the cost of the drugs and made more than over a million dollars in profit. Both or the hospitals never admitted or denied the accusation. They decided to pay twice the fine that was against them. About 145 New York providers which includes the hospitals, physicians, group practices and individual practice have paid back an estimating amount of $19.9 million dollars back to the Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Some health care leaders have brought up an important message regarding mistake with billing should be considered a fraud or not. In the article this is how t "A label of fraud is really not accurate and can discredit the institution in the community," Northern Metropolitan Hospital Association President and CEO Kevin Dahill told the Journal News. "Hospitals participate in these audits and agree to the findings. If they make mistakes, they correct them. That's not fraud," he said (Caramenico, Alicia; 2012, 4). In my opinion I don’t think that a mistake in......

...Name: Neyamul Hoque ID:1020180530 Sec:8 LAW 200 Statement Analysis: “A company at law is distinct from its members. A Director is neither an agent nor a trustee of a company” To: Barrister Shaheen Ahmed (ShD) Date: 07.04.2014 Introduction The main inspiration for forming a corporation or company is the limited liability it offers to its shareholders. This policy allows the shareholders to lose only what he has contributed as shares to the corporate entity and nothing more. However, there is a major exception to the general concept of limited liability. There are certain circumstances in which courts will have to look through the corporation, that is, lift the veil of incorporation, and hold the shareholders of the company personally liable for the obligations of the corporation. The veil policy is raised when shareholders shape the distinction between the corporation andthe shareholders. It is an important aspect of the law that although it is a separate legal entity, a company or corporation can only act through human agents that it is comprised of.Under the company law or corporate law, a corporation is specifically referred to as a legal person who is a subject to rights and duties and is capable of owning real property, entering into contracts,......

...Good Afternoon, Upon reading your story and going over what happened, with my extent knowledge in media law I have come to the conclusion that you will run into some legal troubles. You are looking at a defamation lawsuit. Firstly, I think it is important to understand what exactly that is, some possible defense options and as well as ways to avoid a lawsuit like this in the future. Understanding Defamation: According to Canadian law defamation can take two forms, slander and libel. Slander is defined as the defamation of a person, group, organization, product, government or country that was in the form on spoken words, sounds, sign language, or gestures. Libel is the same thing but the defamatory statement was made in written or printed words or in pictures. You are currently dealing with a defamation case in the form of libel. In legal terms; "The publication of any false imputation concerning a person, or a member of his family, whether living or dead, by which (a) the reputation of that person is likely to be injured or (b) he is likely to be injured in his profession or trade or (c) other persons are likely to be induced to shun, avoid, ridicule or despise him. (White, A Primer on the Law of Defamation in Ontario) Basically Peter Reid Graham has the ability to sue for defamation because the statement referring to the pedophilia was a false statement made as if they were true and referring to him. The information may have been factual but the implications were that......

Martial Law Article Compilation

...and to meet with journalists and lawyers who are fighting to keep the embers of freedom alive despite the authoritarian rule of a military junta. I was in Thailand as the representative of the Center for International Law (Centerlaw), a nongovernment organization founded by my colleague Harry Roque. Centerlaw represents victims of human rights violations, especially persecuted advocates of freedom of expression. It is working to strengthen the network of free expression advocates in Southeast Asia. For four days, I listened to stories of arbitrary arrest and detention, intimidation, and some instances of torture committed by the very government that is supposed to protect the Thai citizenry against such crimes. It is all too reminiscent of the martial rule of Ferdinand Marcos in the Philippines. The Thai military junta, euphemistically known as the National Council for Peace and Order, mounted a coup d’état and ousted the government of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra. The junta imposed martial law when it seized power in May 2014, and while the regime officially lifted it in April 2015, Thailand remains under martial rule because the junta continues to wield executive, legislative and judicial powers. It is all too similar to Marcos who imposed martial law in 1972, officially lifted it in 1981, but continued to act as dictator by exercising executive and legislative powers until he was toppled by people power in February 1986. The Thai junta bans all criticism of its......

...Article or Case Law Search In this article we will learn how Canada has sought to regulate assisted reproduction and reproductive medicine at the federal level. We will see how decisions about healthcare made in other countries impacts the United States as well as globally. The U.S. Supreme Court has long been in dispute about whether it is appropriate for the justices to take into account the views of courts in other countries. There are no comparable arguments about the importance of medical conclusions from other countries, because human anatomy and physiology are unanimous. But, law is jurisdictional. (George J. Annas, 2011) However, there are lessons to be can learned from legal controversies in foreign courts. The latest verdict of the Canadian Supreme Court on the regulation of reproductive medicine is a key model, especially because it divided the court in a five-to-four decision, giving both sides the chance to articulate powerfully held points of view. (George J. Annas, 2011) Canada’s bottom line is that reproductive medicine is a part of the practice of medicine, and since regulation of the practice of medicine is a provincial authority, supervision of reproductive medicine is not constitutional when operated by the federal government (unless it involves the prohibition of an activity that is inherently “evil”). When the justices arrived at the conclusion that procedures (and possible procedures) in the area of reproductive medicine could be split into......

On June 28, 2012 the Supreme Court rendered a final decision to uphold the health care law”. The Affordable Healthcare Act affords new means to hold insurance companies responsible and offers strong selections for customers.
