Rehabilitative prospects a mitigating factor in sentencing

James C Morton at Morton's Musings - 18 minutes ago
R. v. Gouliaeff, 2012 ONCA 690 is a good source for the principle that rehabilitative prospects are a mitigating factor in sentencing: [12] The trial judge's reasons for sentence reveal that he considered the appellant's rehabilitative potential. The evidentiary record indicates that the appellant made some efforts to comply with the law regarding the proper storage of firearms and there appears to be little prospect of his reoffending. However, the reasons suggest that the appellant's rehabilitative prospects were treated as a neutral factor or "non-issue" - rather than as a mitig... more »

US election double standards

Intercept at The Intercept - 45 minutes ago
Russia Today While the US prides itself in free and fair elections, RT’s Anastasia Churkina reports on some of the flaws and double standards in the electoral system that American politicians pretend don’t exist. Honesty is the best policy, but maybe not in US elections. “Two words define why people hate America: double standard, on everything,” said editorial columnist and author Ted Rall. This presidential election season, these two words are back in full swing. The basic definition of a “double standard” is a rule or principle that is unfairly applied in different ways to dif... more »

Global Research Michel Chossudovsky Alfred NobelThis year’s Nobel Peace Prize was granted to the European Union (EU) for its relentless contribution to “the advancement of peace and reconciliation, democracy and human rights in Europe.” While the EU’s contribution to peace is debatable, the key issue is whether a union of nation states, which constitutes a political, economic, monetary and fiscal entity is an “eligible candidate” for the Peace Prize, in accordance with the mandate of the Norwegian Committee.

*“The Self-Destruction of the 1 Percent”* By Chrystia Freeland, The NY Times “In the early 14th century, Venice was one of the richest cities in Europe. At the heart of its economy was the colleganza, a basic form of joint-stock company created to finance a single trade expedition. The brilliance of the colleganza was that it opened the economy to new entrants, allowing risk-taking entrepreneurs to share in the financial upside with the established businessmen who financed their merchant voyages. Venice’s elites were the chief beneficiaries. Like all open economies, theirs was t... more »

Lone Star Watchdog *Riots are not good at all. The Double Standard Threats of Riots. Is it COINTELPRO? I smell a rat when I hear about tweets and Facebook post calling for riots if Obama loses the election November. If Ron Paul supporters and Tea Party member called for riots if Ron Paul was not nominated as the GOP candidate. The SWAT teams would be kicking down our doors taking us to Gitmo so fast before we can say the word of Habeas Corpus. We would not hear the end of it on the cable news channels.* *The hypocrisy of the US Army calling protest low-level terrorism and the US Mar... more »

"Republicans are committed to an economic doctrine that has proved false, indeed disastrous, in other countries" (Paul Krugman)

KenInNY at DownWithTyranny! - 15 hours ago
[*Click to enlarge.*] *"if Mitt Romney wins the election, the G.O.P. will surely consider its economic ideas vindicated. In other words, politically good things may be about to happen to very bad ideas. And if that’s how it plays out, the American people will pay the price."* *-- Paul Krugman, in his Friday NYT column,* "Triumph of the Wrong?" *by Ken* One of the things that does puzzle me about the presidential campaign is Willard Inc.'s -- and the Republicans' -- ability to continue pretending that there's reason to think Willard has some insight into how to make the economy bou... more »

Policies that Benefit the Wealthiest ...

thwap at thwap's schoolyard - 15 hours ago
I remember hearing for over a decade about how Brian Mulroney, then Jean Chretien, the Paul Martin, the Mike Harris, etc., etc., ... all were accused of pushing tax-cuts that benefited the wealthiest and which would deny governments of revenues to help the poor and the middle class. Now, here we have a rancid turd like Dalton McGuinty pushing austerity and declaring tax increases on the wealthiest as off-limits. We've had an explosion of inequality as the richest 1% got something like 15% of all the income gains of the past decade. You know, given that harper and McGuinty are pro... more »

Cons on the eve of self-destruction

Libby Spencer at The Impolitic - 15 hours ago
I've come to the conclusion peak wingnut really doesn't exist. There's no depth to which they will not sink. But there's hope for the future. They've reached the point where they're willing to destroy themselves on the off chance it might piss off us dirty libruls: The voodoo storefront has evoked outrage in the beachfront community of Spring Lake, N.J. But Bill Skuby, 66, owner of the local men's store, Skuby & Co. Lifestyle Clothing, insists that the display is not political. ... "It's personal." The store's window display depicts an image of Obama's head superimposed in the bo... more »

*"Earthquake/Radiation Monitoring Sources"* Compiled by CP *Baseline Surface Radiation Network:* "Because of the important role radiation plays in the climate system, the Baseline Surface Radiation Network (BSRN) was established to provide a worldwide network to continuously measure radiative fluxes at the Earth's surface. Many of these stations began operation in 1992 and each year more stations are added to the network. These stations provide data for the calibration of the GEWEX Surface Radiation Budget (SRB) Project and other satellite-based measurements of radiative fluxes... more »

*“The Fuel Pools of Fukushima: * *The Greatest Short-term Threat To Humanity”* by Washington's Blog "Based on U.S. Energy Department data, assuming a total of 11,138 spent fuel assemblies are being stored at the Dai-Ichi site, nearly all, which is in pools. They contain roughly 336 million curies (~1.2 E+19 Bq) of long-lived radioactivity. About 134 million curies is Cesium-137 — roughly 85 times the amount of Cs-137 released at the Chernobyl accident as estimated by the U.S. National Council on Radiation Protection (NCRP). The total spent reactor fuel inventory at the Fukushima-... more »

"Fukushima Nuclear Situation Deteriorating"

* * *"Fukushima Nuclear Situation Deteriorating"* by Richard Wilcox "Were it not for certain nuclear whistle blowers and outside, independent experts, the public would have to rely on the glib and technically inaccessible reports from Tokyo Electric Power Company (Tepco) or the Japanese government. Not that those reports are entirely without substance, but due to the incomprehensible technical jargon most people simply throw up their hands and hope for the best. Luckily, in this day of the Internet we can learn a lot about what is going on thanks to independent researchers and w... more »
