I live in Russia, and I can tell you that people are free to express their opinion here. Don't believe on propaganda against other countries, it's an informational war. Are people in the UK free to express their opinion about muslims and homosexuals not risking to be labelled as homophobs or bigots?
There are countless “Best Hammocks Online” posts this time of year. Here are 7 great reasons why you should click “add to cart” and spruce up your patio this year.
KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) Keep it simple, keep it safe. The true purpose of a level 1 certification is to show the NAR and / or TRA that you know what you’re doing. A successful certification flight depends on proper knowledge, proper preparation, and a bit o’ luck. Proper knowledge depends upon you reading everything that you can find; you can learn a lot from reading Sport Rocketry and Extreme Rocketry magazines as well as taking advantage of all the info on the Internet. Also, a few books have been published recently that cover this subject. Rocket guys are almost invariably helpful; ask questions of the people who have tread this path before you. Proper preparation depends on you successfully applying your hard-won knowledge and using your rocketry common sense. The bit o’ luck is up to Ifni, but if you’re well prepared, you don’t need much luck. Rocket Selection Buy a kit. You may be tempted to scratchbuild something, but resist that temptation. No matter what your opinion of yourself, you probably don’t know enough yet to attempt a Cert flight on a scratchbuilt rocket. Plus, RSO’s tend to be nervous about Cert flights on scratchbuilts. There are many good kits available from companies such as LOC/Precision, Public Missiles, Aerotech, Rocketman, and many more. Bigger rockets are better. I strongly urge that you buy a 3 or 4 inch diameter rocket. (Resist the urge to use a very small rocket or a very large rocket.) Keep weight in mind; I like cert flights that go up about 1,500 feet. Any flight below 1,000 feet will be slightly dicey; anything much over 2,000 runs an increasing risk of losing the rocket. Look for a rocket with good stability characteristics. My advice is to avoid the short, stubby class of rockets (like the LOC Minie Magg) due to small stability margins. (They can fly fine - just wait until later to try them.)
The present document contains a draft set of provisions for the Rules of the Unified Patent Court (hereinafter "UPC" or "Court") and the Statute of the Court (hereinafter “Statute”). Basic principles of procedural law are already laid down in Part III of the Agreement on a UPC (hereinafter "Agreement"), for instance proportionality and fairness, case management, right to be heard, publicity, stages of the proceedings etc. The Agreement also contains generalprovisions on languages, parties, representation, means of evidence, experts, and defines the powers of the UPC to order provisional measures (in particular preliminary injunctions), to issue orders to preserve evidence (saisie-contrefaçon), corrective measures etc. However, in several places in the Agreement, references are made to the Rules which shall spell out procedural details. This is a tried and tested legal technique: only the basic principles have been included in the Agreement, many procedural details being left for secondary legal instruments. In accordance with Article 41(2) Agreement, the Rules of the UPC shall be adopted by the Administrative Committee, on the basis of broad consultations with all stakeholders and following an opinion of the European Commission on the compatibility of the Rules with Union law. The Contracting Member States, having signed the Agreement,have set up a Preparatory Committee in charge of preparing the practical arrangements for the early establishment and coming into operation of the Court. The Contracting Member States acknowledge the importance of appropriate Rules for the Court and of their uniform application, which are vital to guarantee that the decisions of the Court are of the highest quality and that proceedings are organised in the most efficient and cost effective manner. Rules A small Drafting Committee of expert judges and lawyers was appointed in 2012 to take this work forward. The eighth draft prepared by the Drafting Committee was the subject of wide technical consultation with professional and industry bodies. A list of respondents who commented on that draft is set out below.
People assume hiring a broker, such as Shearin Realty, Inc. , is unnecessary and redundant – and even expensive! This statement or opinion is very far from the truth. A broker is a professional worker who provides a valuable service that not all people fully understand. In countries where their role is openly accepted and fully appreciated, the processing of transactions goes smoothly and with the least hitches or problems. So, what are the advantages of hiring a broker? Here are some of the reasons that will help us make up our minds: First of all, many owners and buyers are not fully aware of the legal and technical requirements in selling or buying a property. The broker has all the qualifications to do it for either of them. Unless one is willing to go through the difficult tasks of doing what a broker does, having a broker is the way to go.

A lot has changed in the few short months since we first published this opinion piece in July. Listed infrastructure funds’ share prices have declined on the back of concerns about the transparency of the underlying funds, their levels of indebtedness (in particular the refinancing of short-term debt), reduced operating revenues and the financial stability of sponsors and fund managers. Despite these difficulties, assets like Angel Trains and Belfast airport changed hands, although the mega-deal that was the Pennsylvania Turnpike sale failed to complete. The debt markets have all but dried up. The liquidity crunch that started with the housing market – wiping out the short-term commercial paper funding market and also claiming the CLO and CDO securitisation market – left banks with little source of liquidity and froze the interbank market. Governments across the world have stepped in to provide liquidity to banks, including full or partial nationalisation. The list is a veritable ‘who’s who’ of the project finance market: RBS, Lloyds/ HBOS, Dexia, Depfa, ING, Fortis. In addition, even though Lehmans was not a large infrastructure lender, their failure had an impact on liquidity as many lenders lost money on deposits and counterparty derivative positions. The US Government has also rescued and nationalised AIG with a two tranche financial injection – firstly $85 bn, then $38 bn (how does one actually spend $85 bn in the space of a few weeks?). This action provided a critical underpin to the CDS market where AIG were a dominant force. There are some early signs of improving markets conditions, with interbank lending rates crawling downwards on the back of government guaranteeing interbank lending. Regrettably this has not yet had any material impact on infrastructure finance liquidity. Also, Lloyds TSB Corporate Markets is reported to have sold a €1 billion project finance-backed CLO structure to a single institutional investor.
