At least 10 riots have rocked colleges in the past two months, resulting in hundreds of arrests and dozens of injuries amid a growing sense that social media are helping to fuel misbehavior at student mass gatherings.
Police arrested 19 people near the University of Minnesota's flagship Twin Cities campus after a recent Gophers hockey loss. At a University of Cincinnati party that drew about 450 students, police had to be summoned when things got out of hand. At an off-campus party at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colo., police resorted to pepper-spray projectiles to bring the crowd under control.

 Since becoming Russia's president in 2000, Putin has made restoring Russia's strength - and its traditional sphere of influence - his central goal. He has also cemented his hold on power, systematically quashed dissent and used Russia's energy supplies as an economic billy club against its neighbors. Aided by high oil prices and Russia's United Nations Security Council veto, Putin has perfected the art of needling American presidents, at times obstructing U.S. policies.
Experts said he is also promoting "Putinism" - a conservative, ultra-nationalist form of state capitalism - as a global alternative to Western democracy.

"Capitalism" has nothing to do with "statism".

This New York case bears indirectly on the famous "Baby M" case that sparked state laws banning surrogacy contracts.  In this case the issue was whether a NY man could adopt his husband's twin children, born in India under a surrogacy arrangement illegal in New York.  The judge ruled the legality of the surrogacy contract was not relevant to the adoption which should be based on the best interests of the children.    
A Queens man may legally adopt his husband's biological twins even though they were born to a woman under a surrogacy agreement that is illegal in New York s...

I wonder if all 3 businesses owned by the same guy :)
 
This made me crack up. I wonder if they all got together and did this on purpose.

+Jay Fleischman and I, two experienced consumer lawyers, write a personal finance site at ConsumerLedger.com.

We focus on providing actionable information about money, law and our economy for people, in the hopes they never need us wearing our lawyer hats.

What do wish your clients understood or acted upon before they became your clients?  What are you intent on teaching your children about being a cog in a consumer society so their lives go well?

Thoughts?

All I can say is YIKES.... Please read this article. NJ is looking to change to law to be able to ticket motorists if they flash their high beams to warn others of police in the area.
Please comment and let me know your thought

Accuracy of a business listing is an essential part of gaining and keeping user trust, and when information is not accurate, consumers will blame the brand regardless of where the fault lies.
The majority of consumers (73 percent) say they lose trust in the local business when it happens. And 67 percent say the same if they get lost due to faulty location information. This, according to recent survey data released by Placeable.

How could a guy pretend to be anti gun and then make deals to import rocket propelled explosives (and launder money)?  It is nice he is facing charges but one has to wonder why Eric Holder and Obama don't push for him to be charged on some terrorism charges.  Harry Reid today stated that the people that supported the Nevada rancher were terrorists.
