This article discusses the Supreme Court and the power it holds. The Supreme Court holds final authority over all lower courts. I was surprised to learn that there are no official qualifications required to become a Supreme Court justice. How does impeachment of justices work?

This article talks about that the Supreme Court of the United States can't prevent an illegal alien from voting of anything in the U.S. If an illegal alien wants to vote for something in the U.S. that is fine. This article relates to government and law because it is our own United States Supreme Court that came up with this ruling. 

Katie Gilbertson's comment, May 24, 2014 9:29 PM
It seems strange to me that the Supreme Court doesn't want citizenship proof, however the only state that seems to have attempted it was Arizona. Perhaps they didn't want other states following suite since it's our right to vote and the proof would make things more tedious for everyone.

Economy stronger than first estimated in Q3 - USA TODAY

Economy stronger than first estimated in Q3 - USA TODAY | Gov and Law- Sam Burich | Scoop.it

My Thoughts;

Though the economy today is in fact stronger than it has been lately. That aside, so many people are still jobless and prices show no sign of going down. For those that do have jobs, basic necessities are harder to afford. When articles and the news talk about "Stronger Economy", they don't look into the details.

The concept of special education

The concept of special education | Gov and Law- Sam Burich | Scoop.it
Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs.

 

Special education teachers teach students who have physical or mental disabilities and thus have special needs. They are a lifeline to children with special needs since children with special needs are constrained in their learning process because of their disabilities. It is just because of the special education teachers that they acquire the basic skills in education and life overall, and may learn to live independently. Special education teachers adapt the general education curriculum to suit the unique needs of each student. 

 

Thus, special education is a lifeline for those students who have special needs. They personally take care of the special needs of the students by modifying or changing the curriculum accordingly to the extent of disability, wether mild or moderate. With students having severe disabilities, they tend to teach such students basic skills so that students with disabilities can lead their lives independently and teach them basiccommunication skills and mathematics. 

Special education teacher assess the strengths and needs of each student and set their teaching goals accordingly. They help develop Individualized Education Programs (IEPs), which outlines the kind of education each student with special needs will receive. Special education teachers need to be calm, patient, organized, inspiring and accepting. Special education students can come with a varying degree of disabilities and from various backgrounds.

Special education teachers, hence, have to be understanding and have very effective communication skills, as special education students have difficulty in conveying their needs and ideas. Special education teachers help the students with special needs to feel comfortable in social situations and be aware of socially acceptable behaviour. 

Preparing the special education students for life after school is an important part of the work of special education teachers as they teach their students some basic skills which help them to live independently. Thus, special education teachers are doing a great service to the nation by catering to the needs of students with disabilities and help them live a near normal and dignified life.

Special education teachers are, as Michael said, invaluable. These teachers make nigh-unfathomable differences in these children's lives, and, in my opinion, do not receive due credit.

Carlos Batara's curator insight, October 18, 2013 12:53 AM


An American citizen being deported four times because of a law that doesn’t exist sounds like the plot of a Hollywood movie.


Sadly, this is a true story.


As NPR reported, in Applicants Wrongly Denied U.S. Citizenship, for more than two decades, Sigifredo Saldana Iracheta kept telling immigration officials he was a U.S. citizen, born to an American father and a Mexican mother in a city just south of the Texas border. 


Meanwhile, his wife and three children remained in South Texas, hoping of the day his ordeal could end.


His claims were rejected. 


Not once, not twice, not three times.


Four times.


That beats a former client of mine, who, after failing twice to win his  citizenship status, lost his confidence and applied for permanent residence - before he finally proved citizenship on his third try.


Adding insult to injury, Saldana's citizenship claims were rejected on the basis of a Mexican law provision which did not exist.


At a hearing before the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the government lawyer explained the mistake on a “typo.”


In response, Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod scolded the government attorney, “you all have been citing this over and over again to people for years now, and you can't even look it up in Mexican law."


The judge was correct but may not have gone far enough.


Did Saldana ever have an attorney represent him in the earlier cases?


And what about the judges in those earlier cases?


Was anyone awake besides Saldana?


Perhaps worse, it is not know how many immigrants, like Saldana, have been deported under the same flawed interpretation of a non-existent law.

It's harder to live on miminum wage than people thing. The poverty line is just barely below the amount a person making miminum wage earns. That aside, a lot of the problems nowadays have more to do with how people spend their money, not how much they make. It's hard, but entirely possible.

Online Healthcare Marketing Trends for 2014 #hcsm

Online Healthcare Marketing Trends for 2014 #hcsm | Gov and Law- Sam Burich | Scoop.it

Image-Centric Content

Numerous studies indicate that the human brain is able to process visual information 60,000 times faster than text – a fact that partially accounts for the new image-centric approach to online healthcare marketing. In this context, a relevant image or a micro-video posted online can help you elicit a stronger emotional response from viewers compared to text-only posts. To get the best possible results, it’s imperative to complement your healthcare advertising strategy with images and videos that your followers will love to comment on and share. 


Native Advertising

Including ads nearly indistinguishable from organic content and integrated seamlessly into users’ feeds, native advertising proposes a logical step after Internet users became annoyed and desensitized by pop-up ads and advertising banners. Native advertising comes along with a series of best practices, which require you to ensure that your ads:

don’t strike a discordant note with the organic content of your website – this way, your visitors won’t bounce from your website feeling confused or duped

are highly engaging, but not highly visual

are properly tagged to get found online easily

are mobile-friendly


Organic Interaction

Another trend that will probably dominate online healthcare marketing in 2014 is organic interaction, which allows healthcare marketers to leverage the interaction with their patients through authentic connections. An authentic connection can be built by posting content that invites target audience to visit websites where healthcare professionals are ready to discuss different health aspects, answer questions and even examine patients remotely through web cameras or videos that people create and send via emails. Additionally, more and more healthcare practitioners recommend patients to use medical mobile applications, which can help them monitor their health. Organic interactions give you the opportunity not only to interact with your patients in a unique way, but also to turn them into reliable brand ambassadors.


Wearable Technology

We can’t talk about wearable technology without presenting Google Glass, an Android-powered computer built into spectacle frames, which is expected to have a positive impact on different industries, including the healthcare sector. Paramedics connecting instantly with trauma specialists while treating victims at the scene of an accident and transplant teams making available real-time data while carrying out organ removal from organ donors are just a few things that this technology will make possible.


Mobile Ads, Websites and Apps

Studies document that increasing numbers of people use their mobile devices to browse the Internet. This means that mobile medical marketing is key to reaching audience that loves “mobility.” Although creating long blogs that provide high-quality, comprehensive content is very important to attract visitors, make sure that you also optimize your webpage content for mobile devices.

It would be up to the Govt. to decide whether they would give it back and then probably demand a bucketful of back taxes so as not to encourage other wealthy persons to leave the country... just a personal opinion... we would have to find someone who did just that and see what happened... that would be the precedent...

Matthew hintz's curator insight, May 14, 2014 9:46 AM

There are many good and bad things that could come out of legalizing marijuana. It could bring in so much revenue for the government and make the illegal drug dealers just work for the government. They bad things are it is a gate way drug. It can do harm but at the same time it can do good for the us government.  

Brian Bertram's comment, May 17, 2014 2:44 PM
I personally think that marijuana should be legalized in the United States as long is it is heavily taxed. Just like alcohol during prohibition, marihuana is used because it is illegal. It gives people a rush when they break the law. If it was legalized less people would use it and it would be better for the country in all.
