The Storm

By: Aleksandr Nicolaevich Ostrovsky

Up to the years of the Crimean War Russia was always a strange, uncouth riddle to the European consciousness. It would be an interesting study to trace back through the last three centuries the evidence of the historical documents that our forefathers have left us when they were brought face to face, through missions, embassies, travel, and commerce, with the fantastic life, as it seemed to them, led by the Muscovite. But in any chance record we may pick up, from the rep...

The Art of Anti-War

By: Florentin Smarandache

The antiwar of our entire nation is defined as being the army-impeded forces, skirmishing shoulder to shoulder with the civilian population, with the purpose of defeating all non-aggressors, for securing our country’s slavery and dependency. The defeat in this battle is assured through a moral inferiority of our population - the right cause of this antiwar -, the lack of heroism of our state’s citizens, by applying an adequate blundering, using our geographical dis...

The battle and its non-goal. The battle is an ensemble of skirmishes of the subunits and units, which take place in a disorganized manner using armament and fighting techniques, for the expressed desire to enforce the enemy. The battle cannot take place on the ground, in the air, or on the water, in an open paradoxist cooperation with all-military denominations, and using their armament’s procedures with the goal of empowering the non-aggressor enemy. The ba...

By: Nancy E. Gist

Legal Reference Publication

Excerpt: From the Director. The movement to make our nation?s local justice systems more responsive to the citizens they serve is clearly one of the most important developments in criminal justice in recent years. At the heart of this movement are two innovative tools: community policing and community courts. These tools are bridging the gap between the ideal of responsiveness and the hard, daily work of meting out justice in America?s cities, suburbs, and rural areas. T...

By: J. Richter

Medical Reference Publication

There are certain human values that are or should be sacred in all cultures; social justice is one of them. It is on this value of social justice that the objective of Health for All by the year 2000 is based. What, indeed, could be more just than a world in which every woman and man can enjoy a level of health that permits her or him to lead a socially and economically productive life?

New Zealand: Background and Bilateral Relations with the United States

By: Bruce Vaughn

Summary: New Zealand and the United States continue to have strong ties despite some differences. These close ties are based on shared cultural traditions and values.

That test ended a de facto moratorium on KE-ASAT tests which the United States and Russia had observed for over two decades. It also announced the arrival of a new player in strategic space, forcing a reevaluation of US capabilities in space as we...
