FLJS and Aspen Institute Lecture: Detention without Trial in Wartime Britain
Delivered by Prof. AWB Simpson at the Aspen Institute on 7 Jul 08, it gives an account of the response of the courts to detention without trial during WWII. It serves to open a two-day seminar entitled 'In Times of Crisis Can We Trust the Courts?'. The lecture argues that the courts largely abandoned any role in protecting civil liberty, on the ground that, under the emergency legislation of the time, this was not their responsibility. It goes on to explain how the ratification of the European C

Radiation Treatment and Metastatic Spine Disease
Metastatic disease to the spine can be very common in cancer patients. While this condition can often be present without any symptoms, it can often present with pain and neurological symptoms. In this program, Dr. Jason Rockhill explains one effective non-operative treatment for cancer to the spine: radiation. Dr. Michael Lee then discusses metastatic spine disease and Dr. Fangyi Zhang closes the program with some relevant case studies.

1.2.1 Decoupling sex and reproduction

Humans have separated sex and reproduction: unlike other species, we can enjoy sexual intercourse even (or especially) at times when fertilization is not possible. Many sexual encounters are casual, and in these cases it is often very important to avoid pregnancy. Even during long-term relationships, many couples choose to avoid having children. Thus for many people contraceptive measures are an essential part of their lives. This is not a modern phenomenon: as you will see, birth control has

1 Le quatorze juillet

The French national holiday on 14 July commemorates the storming of the Bastille prison (la prise de la Bastille) in 1789. The rioters’ victory, at the end of a day-long siege, marked the beginning of the Revolution. The day is celebrated with a variety of events, large and small, across the country: défilés militaires (military parades), retraites aux flambeaux (torch-light processions), feux d’artifices (fireworks) and bals publics (free dances open

7.1 Introduction

So far, we have concentrated on the electronic and spatial structures of chemical substances, but we have not said much about chemical reactions. Now we turn to the question of why chemical reactions happen. To remind you of the basic ideas, we shall concentrate on one particular reaction which occurs in the modern motor car.

Table 2 shows typical percentages of the main constituents of the exhaust gas that emerges from a modern car engine. The two most dangerous pollutants are carbon

The Constitution in Crisis 2016
Professor Denis Galligan, Professor of Socio-Legal Studies and Fellow of Wolfson College at the University of Oxford, gives a talk for the FLJS Seminar Series. Following the High Court ruling that the government, under a centuries-old Royal Prerogative, does not have the power to trigger Article 50 to leave the EU, MPs have claimed that we are entering a full-blown constitutional crisis. Lady Hale, Deputy President of the Supreme Court, has stated that the Miller v Secretary of State for Exiting

4.2.4 Plan your time

When planning to use the time available, you should:

  • make sure that you are answering the right number of questions

  • divide your time according to the weighting of the questions

  • write down the finishing time for each question

  • try to allow for 10 minutes checking time at the end.

Stick to your plan. Evidence indicates that two half-answered questions obtain more marks than one completed

5.2 From social construction to social constructionism

The notion of social construction, we have argued, is fundamental to a social science approach to the analysis of social problems. However, some authors have developed the notion further into a more focused perspective, which may be called social constructionism. This perspective starts by emphasising one essential feature of human societies – the role of language. In human societies, action is preceded by understanding and intention. We intend our actions to have meaningful outcomes

Introduction

In this unit, we explore some aspects of bringing a complex project to completion. There are a number of things to consider in the final stages of a project. It is very important to ensure that the goals of the project have been achieved, and that all the outcomes and deliverables have been handed over to the sponsor (or that any discrepancies have been addressed). Handover can involve different types of presentation for different types of outcome. There may be a physical object to handover,

8.1.2Why do you think the Home Secretary did not draw on this research when interpreting the asylum

Considering these findings alongside the statistical data and our personal stories, we can draw some conclusions about the production and reproduction of knowledge about refugees and asylum seekers through research:

6.2 ‘No-choice’ dispersal

Dispersal as a strategy aimed at resolving tensions, avoiding ‘concentrations of aliens’ and preserving ‘ethnic balance’ and ‘cultural homogeneity’ is not a new idea, but one proposed for the settlement of successive groups of refugees, and indeed immigrants, since the 1930s, and also used in the 1960s and 1970s in relation to housing and education (Lewis, 1998). The government's asylum dispersal policy of 1999, intended to ‘ease the burden’ of the south-east of England, was b

1 Is grief a medical problem?

Grief is a fertile area for debate and controversy within health care professions, and its significance as something in need of medical attention has been debated by both health analysts and social commentators alike. Is it a ‘natural’ phenomenon that should be respected and acknowledged, but one that requires that the bereaved individual is left alone to experience it in their own way? Or should the bereaved person be assisted with intervention which relies on the presumption that grief
