I could interject that this lack of progression of degenerative disease and the absence of any other detectable significant radiological change is of interest in determining the causation of the need for the second operation.

Information sharing that is open and honest can be a boon for both countries looking for the next non–permanent seat in the UN Security Council ready to be taken.
Topic: The Fregoli Delusion
Posted: Wednesday, July 1, 2020 3:17:31 AM
It does not need to be treated as delusion, especially if there are other to medical practitioners people who can be established as financially interested in the classification of this condition as delusion.

The person who thinks that, different people he encounters are actually a single individual using multiple disguises, should begin running his diary, with date, time, place, surrounding circumstances description, even words spoken by bystanders. Taking as much details as it might be possible is important in order to decide, is it a case of stalking. Psychologist is not helpful at this stage, if not potentially detrimental as psychologist can potentially inform people suspected of committing a stalking.

Topic: fall backward on the wheel of history
Posted: Sunday, June 21, 2020 3:03:03 PM
In addition to what Foundit has stated, I may add that there is an information about the history’s independence from the acts of a person concerned, there. The wheel of history moves forward as people are developing their organisation. Yet, if you, for example, stumble, you will fall. You do not fall with your face in the mud as dead people do, but you will fall backward. The people who are going to die usually fall with their face forward. People who will live usually fall aside or backward. It is you who will fall backward but not, this time, on the ground; you will fall on the wheel which is behind of you moving forward. The wheel of history will use you as a sort of tyre, however hilarious it may sound.

These cases sufficiently confute the argument founded upon the words of Section 70 of The Indian Evidence Act 1872 that--"The admission of a party to an attested document of its execution by himself shall be sufficient proof of its execution as against him, though it be be a document required by law to be attested."

Topic: point ahead
Posted: Saturday, June 20, 2020 12:20:34 PM
I think that it would be different.

Without ‘ahead’ it could be understood as referring to the arguments available, without predicting the future development of the situation.
The use of ‘ahead’ is helpful as indicating that the author made an attempt (tried) to envisage the potential contra–arguments.
Topic: Felony enhancement laws

The word 'felony' is an old one. It may be easier to understand it, if you would like to have a closer look at the old legal acts.

In 1323 during the 17th session of Edward II, the King decided that pardon for homicide or felony was not to be made without the King’s special mandate.

The Stamp Duties Management Act of 1891 was amended in 1999 year by the Finance Act (Irish) as to its section 13, whereby the word ‘felony’ understood as an offence, if the person charged with the offence were to be found guilty, resulted in conviction in penal servitude for any term not exceeding fourteen years, or with modification, that is, with or without hard labour for any term not exceeding two years”. [It related to the revenue offences.]
The penal servitude seems to be not existing anymore, of course. Nevertheless, it may be possible to find a suitable substitution for it in the modern times.

I have no doubt at all that Attila could have fed an army of 300,000 men. He simply did not care as he did not need to have them fed. His soldiers were feeding themselves, although not on a pasture.

It was held, on the basis of the medical evidence, the forensic necropsy report and the approval of the review commission, that the death of victim had had natural causes and had not been induced by any medical error.
