The Renaissance Man

When my body is bored and strength is what I seek
All I can do is exercise
When the thoughts are heavy and the emotions are intense
All I can do is write
When my patience is thick and beauty is appreciated
All I can do is draw
When my questions are large and my mentors are absent
All I can do is read

I wish I could take a stroll with Leonardo Da Vinci
We would laugh about how people think everything is separate
We would talk about how Mathematics defines our art
How sports affects our thinking
How reading affects our words

So many distractions these days
So much information in a field
We understand the need for specialisation
We appreciate the experts - who have dedicated thousands of hours to their craft

But what about the man who finds pleasure in all?
What about the man misunderstood by his peers?
What about the man who has been criticised for a lack of focus?
What about the man whose joy comes from diving into different rivers, allowing the current and his heart to guide him?

The man takes what he learns from one field and applies it to another
He is constantly on the move, no one knows what they will find him doing next
He does not just jump out of the water when it gets too cold for him...
He draws out as much as he can, enough to fill his soul
Proceeds to walk with his Muse, always learning

The Renaissance Man does not know where he will end up
He has a plan but he is not in control of the destination
All he does is walk his path
Those around him cannot deal with such an individual
They throw words at him - to discourage and marginalise his fiery inclinations
But he knows better than to join in their inferior games and petty squabbles
The only person he listens to is his heart
That inner voice which leads him to precarious, yet beautiful places

The Renaissance Man does not know what tomorrow would look like
He only enjoys what he does today.

Law / Chapel Hill shooting: The US definition of a hate crime
« on: February 19, 2015, 03:38:34 PM »
The FBI is investigating whether the fatal shooting of three Muslim students in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, was a hate crime. What is the definition of this offence and how do you prove it, asks Rajini Vaidyanathan. "This has hate crime written all over it," said Mohammad Abu Salha, as he delivered a moving address at the funeral of his two daughters, Yusor and Razan Abu Salha, and his son-in-law, Deah Barakat.
Police say the three students were gunned down by their neighbour, Craig Stephen Hicks. An initial investigation indicated Hicks was motivated by an ongoing dispute over parking, and his wife Karen maintains the attacks were not religiously motivated.
What is a hate crime?
The FBI defines a hate crime as one with an added element of bias against a person's race, religion, disability, ethnic origin or sexual orientation. The agency says: "Hate itself is not a crime - and the FBI is mindful of protecting freedom of speech and other civil liberties."
Proving whether something is a hate crime can be extremely difficult.
Families of the victims believe they were killed in a hate crime
You have to show that the crime was committed because someone held those views. "If someone from a hate group assassinates the leader of a civil rights organisation, the primary motive is clear," explains Joseph Kennedy, a law professor at the University of North Carolina.
The toughest burden is when a defendant may have another motive, but could also hold racial or religious prejudice, a scenario that could apply to the North Carolina case, says Kennedy. "Under federal guidelines you can't prosecute someone for a hate crime just because they have biased views, you have to prove that's the reason they committed the crime."
Without a confession, the FBI would look at other evidence to support a motive, explains Kami Chavis Simmons, a former prosecutor for the US government who is now a professor at Wake Forest University.
That might mean analysing a suspect's social media posts, checking whether they belonged to any hate groups, and interviewing friends and family. "All of those things could prove a motive, but you're still going to have [to find] a nexus between those things and the crime," Simmons says.
What's the law in North Carolina?

The vast majority of US states have some form of hate crime legislation, but North Carolina has no specific provision to prosecute murder as a hate crime. The state has an "ethnic intimidation" law which applies to lower level crimes such as assault or vandalism.
Hate can be a factor at the sentencing of certain crimes. If someone is convicted of second degree murder, for example, the fact they killed someone on account of the victim's religion could increase the sentence by around three years, explains Kennedy. But first-degree murder, which already carries a punishment of life in prison or the death penalty, isn't affected.
There were vigils across America in the wake of the killings
Can the US government step in?
The FBI is already working with police in Chapel Hill to investigate the killings.
But the federal government is "highly unlikely" to push for a separate hate crime prosecution if Hicks is found guilty of murder, according to Brian Levin, a criminology professor who runs the Centre for the Study of Hate and Extremism at California State University.
"If a prosecutor can get the death penalty without having to prove the additional motive of racial or religious bias, they will often do that," he says. "It means that some of the most heinous hate crimes in the US haven't been prosecuted under hate crime law."
So, what's the purpose of hate crime laws?
Although murders only make up a handful of the 6,000 hate crime incidents reported to the FBI in 2013, the category can make a significant difference with lower-level crimes such as cross burning, arson, and hanging nooses.
"There are thousands of other hate crimes which may otherwise not receive prison sentences or punishment without the enhancement that hate crime laws provide," says Levin.
And hate crime legislation also has a broader role in the criminal justice system, argues Simmons.
"There's huge symbolism attached to having these laws on the books," she says. "We want to deter people from committing these crimes and say no one should be targeted because they are from a particular group."(BBC)

Food / Easy pancake recipe
« on: February 17, 2015, 07:39:24 PM »
Do not worry if the first pancake or two is a failure: it acts as a test for the consistency of the batter and the heat of the pan, and if you are new to pancake making you may prefer to make them slightly thicker, to be on the safe side, in which case you may only make eight.
Makes 12 thin pancakes (18-20cm each)
INGREDIENTS
125g plain flour
1 egg and 1 yolk
300ml milk
METHOD

American pancake recipe by Sorted Food 10 Feb 2015
Sift 125g plain flour into a bowl and make a well in the middle. Whisk together one egg, one egg yolk and a little milk taken from the 300ml, then pour into the well. Whisk with a little of the flour.
Gradually whisk in half of the remaining milk, drawing in the rest of the flour a little at a time, to make a smooth batter. Stir in the remaining milk. Cover and leave to stand for about 30 minutes.
Heat the frying pan and brush with a little oil. Ladle two or three tablespoons of batter into the pan and tilt the pan so that the batter spreads out evenly over the bottom. Cook the pancake over a medium-high heat for 45-60 seconds until small holes appear on the surface, the underside is lightly browned and the edge has started to curl. Loosen the pancake and turn it over by tossing or flipping it with a palette knife. Cook the other side for about 30 seconds until golden. Slide the pancake out of the pan.
Heat and lightly grease the pan again before making the next pancake. Serve the pancakes as they are made, or stack them on a plate and reheat before serving. (If the pancakes are hot when you stack them they will not stick together; there is no need to interleave them with greaseproof paper.)

Punishment for students! It is ridiculous. 2 years law colleges face no problem. 4 years so much impediments. Can a medical student become a doctor  just having a 2 years MBBS course? Bravo! University of Bar Council.
