The American Genocide Against Iraq: 4% of Population Dead as result of US sanctions, wars

Lakin's insight:

This article is related to government and law because it is talking about the military. About 4% of the United States population has died from the Iraq war. That would equal about 12 million people. We are trying to end the war and stop it because it is causing us debt and loosing our loved ones.

I don't think there's any reason that we should still be over there. We lose loved ones everyday mad it's not right that we continue to fight battles that aren't ours. Is it worth losing the ones we love for so one one else's troubles?

This article is related to government and law because it's talking about the foreign policy. Some of the foreign countries had some oil products closed off which was causing oil and gas products to be more expensive. The United States and the foreign countries have been talking about opening up the oil supply which would make more profit for them and oil products easier to get.

Rachel DeWaard's curator insight, May 22, 2014 12:43 AM

Whether or not the U.S. should have gotten involved with this Libyan oil crisis or other foreign affairs across the globe is a matter of foreign  policy. In this case, I feel like the US did not have to become involved. I think the US should weigh which foreign affair is really our business and which we should help in.

Breanne Hemann's comment, May 23, 2014 10:29 AM
I think that it was good that we were able to help out Libya without any acts of violence. Not only did this help our country, because oil prices with be reduced but it also helped Libya. I think that in dealing with foreign affairs we should be more careful not to involve ourselves in battles that aren't necessary, but in things like this we should help out more.
Reed Klunder 's comment, May 23, 2014 1:46 PM
I think that we should do things like this more often, we need to help those who need it but not fight their battles. It not only help benefit them but it also benefitted us. This is what the government needs to lean towards. Why try and fight when you can make peace?

This is related to government and law because it is involving drugs and the law enforcement. Law enforcements want to start buying heroin antitode because it help or prevent a overdose.

I do agree that the law enforcement should go for this because heroin takes awhile to get out of the system. They don't want these criminals doped up on heroin while they are in prison. They want to get it out of their system as soon as possible so they can act like a normal human being, the officers don't want to deal with mindless people.

I think the world would be so much safer and clean if there was no/limited poverty. There's no reason that companies can't hire some of these people. Although some people need to take the time to actually put themselves out there. These people need to be pushed to go out and find a job rather than getting help from the government. If the world was poverty free, would it be more efficient?

China needs to learn from Japan, EU and the US to accelerate pollution reduction - 

Johnny Heaton's curator insight, March 21, 2014 7:49 PM

          China's obnoxious pollution problem is at a point where the environment on the coast of Japan is being effected by the toxic smog in the air created from China's corporate pollution problem.


This neighborly act by China to Japan has required the Japanese to focus on the anti-pollution technology to solve the problem in Japan then hopefully share the technology with China if the corporations allow the expense. 

Japan's offering of providing the technology at a cost to the Chinese, is a great offer for the Chinese because the Japanese have the technology to start making a difference to the poor quality of environment in China right now in the present.

The sharing of anti-air, water purifying and solar power technologies from Japan can help make  China a better environment to cut down on the global impact China puts on the world.

 

This is a great partnership with countries that are so close to each other for a better future but my beliefs are that the corporations won't spend the extra expenses required to make the Earth a better place because that would take away from the dollars the corporation earns towards its share holders.

I agree that our economy and environment needs to be cleaned up. The only problem with making everything green, is the expenses that we as citizens would have to pay. It will definitely make the world a fresh and safe place but many people don't have money to buy food, let alone expensive machines. Does the government need to lower taxes so we can afford a safer environment?

8th Amendment violation death penalty

This article is related to government and law because it is about the 8th amendment. The 8th amendment states that it protects citizens from cruel or unfair punishment. In Connecticut, a cruel murder crime was involved. This man killed one family, torched them, and burned them alive. His actions went against the 8th amendment. The defensive attorney did say he has mental problems and went through a tough childhood. He was sentenced to the death sentence penalty. Do you believe because of his mental problems he deserves the same punishment?

Lakin's comment, May 1, 2014 3:45 PM
I believe that the government here is going against the 8th amendment because this man did commit a horrible crime, but he most likely had some mental problems. I think the government instead should send him to life in prison because it would be a more worse punishment and he would have to sit with his guilt.
Reed Klunder 's comment, May 2, 2014 3:23 PM
I find this article interesting because this man killed a lot of people but he has a mental problem. It would be understandable if he was at a normal state of mind but he's not. If he has no idea what he's doing or any sense of right and wrong then he doesn't deserve that punishment. Depending on how bad his mental problem is, he should get help. Would a baby get the death penalty if it killed someone?
Brian Bertram's comment, May 3, 2014 10:01 AM
I disagree with Matt, I think those who were arested because of being a serial killer or something else bad enough to get the death penalty should not be allowed to post bail. If they know they might get the death penalty, they might make a run for it. That way they would be free again.

Hunger blamed for remote Aboriginal Australian community crime spree

Hunger blamed for remote Aboriginal Australian community crime spree | Lakin Gov N Law | Scoop.it
Aboriginal elders in Hermannsburg, west of Alice Springs, have held an urgent meeting to crack down on a soaring crime rate.

[excerpt]

Aboriginal elders in Hermannsburg, west of Alice Springs, have held an urgent meeting to crack down on a soaring crime rate. Some believe it is because young people are not being fed enough at home during the Northern Territory school holidays.

[...]

Elder Mavis Malbunka says youths are stealing food and she believes hunger is partly responsible for the thefts.

"The older kids, they want to break in and get more food, because we don't hear they steal money from the shop," she said.

Shop worker Rodney Matuschka has lived in the community for more than five years and says crime has never been a problem before.

He says the children are fed at school but some may be going hungry in the holidays and stealing food as a result.

"While they are at school, they get three meals a day," he said.

"They get breakfast in the morning, they get a main cooked meal at 10.30am and they get a lunch at 1pm.

"I think possibly it (the crime) is because they are not getting well-fed at home."

[...]

Kids are becoming hungry and are starving for food. They are trying to do anything and everything to find food for themselves. Digging through garbage and stealing food at stores. It's interesting to see what these people go through and it needs to be fixed immediately. Will the government ever see that the constant raising of costs are killing families all around the world?

alina martin's curator insight, December 3, 2013 7:57 AM

Pediatric drugs are a special class of drugs which are prescribed to children and infants for different diseases.  These drugs are recommended in various conditions such as asthma, anorexia, birth defects, cancer in children, growth deficiencies, juvenile diabetes, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and others. Various acts have been passed to control pediatric drugs such as Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act (BPCA) and the Pediatric Research Equity Act (PREA). These acts have been introduced to increase the investments on R&D for pediatric drugs and to increase the drugs count prescribed for children and infants.

 

Browse Full Report with TOC: http://www.transparencymarketresearch.com/pediatric-drugs-market.html

 

Pediatric drugs are categorized in three segments namely pediatric clinical pharmacology, pediatric pharmacotherapy and pediatric pharmacy. Pediatric pharmacotherapy focuses on those drugs which will behave differently in children and adults. Pediatric clinical pharmacology includes those drugs which are helpful for mental and physical growth. Pediatric pharmacy includes all those drugs which are specifically meant for children. To treat various disease conditions different drugs are prescribed such as acetaminophen, fentanyl, ibuprofen, naloxone and methadone are given as analgesics. In addition, cefazolin, ampicillin and meropenem are prescribed to treat microbial infections whereas clonidine and etomidate are recommended for sedative effect. Various other drugs are tramadole, oxycodone, codeine, lorazepam and gabapentin.

 

Growing concerns globally, amongst parents has assisted the growth of this segment. Moreover, governments worldwide are funding and initiating various national programs to support use of drugs to curb infant and child mortality rates. Rise in disposable income along with awareness in people has augmented the growth of pediatric drugs in developed nations such as U.S. and Europe. In addition, rising incidence of disease conditions such as obesity, diabetes and hypertension in children have also contributed in its growth. Despite various developments, low disposable income and unawareness in developing nations are hindering the growth of this market. Moreover, side effects such as anxiety, headache and fatigue are also restricting its growth.

This is related to government and law because it is a public policy issue about should the classrooms be flipped. It shows that kids are improving from learning on videos online outside of school.

It should be important for our government to do a lot of research into the  learning of the young kids. They are one day going to run our country and should be educated the best they can.

If they get in trouble earlier in life maybe they will learn their lesson. Drugs are a killer, so why blame the cops for trying to save you?

They were going door to door which went pass the freedom of expression. Many people were very upset by this. Why did the police decide to go against the first amendment?

"The ACLU will always defend the free exchange of ideas and information. Once government places unnecessarily restrictive limitations on how we engage our neighbors, protest in public places, or even how we use Facebook, the core strength of America's democracy is diminished."

Reed Klunder 's comment, April 24, 2014 5:19 PM
I believe the police should not have gone against the first amendment because everyone is given the right of freedom of expression. If we didn't have this amendment in place the world would be very dull and many of us would probably be in trouble for expressing ourselves and freedom. The police should not have gone to door to door and let people express themselves if they aren't violating the rules!

New Statesman - Why federalism won’t save the Union

New Statesman - Why federalism won’t save the Union | Lakin Gov N Law | Scoop.it

how anThe reality is that most Scots support greater fiscal autonomy and, so far, attempts to draw a line in the sand at the status quo - or, worse still, the Scotland Bill - have only played into the hands of the SNP. It makes sense, then, for unionists to seize the initiative by embracing federalism - or some variant of it - and handing Scots responsibility over the bulk of their financial and economic affairs. This would undermine the drive toward separation by sating the Scottish appetite for more self-government.

 

But would it?

Lakin's insight:

This article is related to government and law because it is talking about federalism and how it can't save the union. The union right now over in Ukraine is barely keeping it together with the rule of federalism. With this understanding they are trying to seek out other ways to improve it. By that they looked at the Scottish appetite that is more self-government that they liked. As well looked at other opportunities for the government. Do you think they will switch the union to a different government or just make changes?

I find this to be a very interesting article. It is kind of confusing as to what the Scots want to do any why. Overall, I definitly think that it will be hard for their country to turn to a Federalism economy because they can't provide a a lot of anything for their country as a whole, and they might not have very good like in the trading. I feel like if they do switch to a federalism they will have a very hard time trading with the rest of the UK

In this article the Scots definitely need to figure out what they want to do. It was very back and forth but I don't think Federalism will help. That's a huge change and it doesn't really go a long with the rest of the United Kingdom. It's interesting to see that they are considering being a Federalism economy because you need to be able to provide a lot and I'm not sure if the Scots can do that.
Madison Blazing's comment, May 9, 2014 9:58 PM
This article discussed an interesting topic regarding a Federalistic economy for Scotland. There are some specifically beneficial aspects of adopting this system as well as some clear draw backs. The article mentioned that many of the Scottish leaders have a growing appetite for more independence and self government. I think that despite the many benefits,turning to Fedealism may be difficult because of Scotland's reliance on others nearby.

I think Obamacare is a good thing to have because it allows other people who can't afford healthcare at least have some sort of insurance to help them out. I also think that when the government shuts down it affects everyone because a lot of public places are shut down as well as people's jobs. I think they should find away where the government can't shut down and they must work together to fix the problem without shutting it down.
Brian Bertram's comment, May 11, 2014 8:05 AM
I think it was a good idea for the government to shut down. They already spend more money than they make so it is god to save a little money. They should start doing it more often.
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 2014 3:35 PM
I think it's ridiculous that one thing can put a hold on every other thing in our government, and something that HF yet to occur! Congress was being childish. Although it saves us money not having a running government, it is necessary to have. If you have to avoid an argument because you can't reach a consensus, then you should be in charge of millions of peoples' lives.

Lakin's insight:

This article relates to government and law because it is talking about the Constitution. The Constitution is very important to us because it was the first system to ever create a government and rules. It helped us make and shape America who we are today.  In this article you will find out how important the Constitution was to us. How we must move our way back to the Constitution because we are edging away from it and making special treatment for others.

We were founded on the constitution and it is the base of our government. We cannot go away from it. Without it our country would have more chaos and no structure to it.
pdowds30's comment, May 15, 2014 3:24 PM
A powerful point is made in saying "we just need to get back to the constitution". It's the right thing to do, but it's also like saying we need to get back to colonial times in general. Technology and knowledge have a great effect on how our government is run and who gets a say in what. Citizens of the United States are definitely blinded by some of the governments choices. We're always told that they're doing what's best for us, but in reality, it's probably what's easier for them. The country as a whole needs to take a few steps back and rework our vision for our future.
Margaret Silhasek's comment, May 24, 2014 2:38 PM
I definitely think that we need to go back to the Constitution like it's saying, but it is almost impossible. I feel like there are so many new things that come about that the government has to make certain exceptions and it's hard not to give someone else a little push towards success. there are so many things that are government does that helps one group positively, but another group negatively.
