  • Having a strong password goes a long way in helping to protect your data, but there are a number of additional steps you can take to help you keep your Gmail account secure
  • The law consists of abstract rules because…as human beings, judges are unable to foresee all of the long-term consequences of their decisions and may be unduly influenced by the immediate, visible effects of these decisions. The rules of law are designed in part to strike the proper balance between the interests of those who are seen and those who are not seen. The purpose of the rules is to enable judges to resist the emotionally engaging temptation to relieve the plight of those they can see and empathize with, even when doing so would be unfair to those they cannot see.
    Calling on judges to be compassionate or empathetic is in effect to ask them to undo this balance and favor the seen over the unseen…if the difference…is that the bad judge focuses on the visible effects of his or her decisions while the good judge takes into account both the effects that can be seen and those that are unseen, then the compassionate, empathetic judge is very likely to be a bad judge.

    False gods are everywhere, of course, and I’m sure you’ll find a vendor to customize one to your needs. May we all be cult.
  • There are institutes where students walk in with their eyes open and know what to expect. And there are those where they walk in, blinded – misled, misguided and misinformed, by a campaign where media, regulatory agencies and academia become willing accomplices…
    As we scanned the ads, spoke to experts, affected parties and counselors, we realised that one name cropped up the most – IIPM. We decided to investigate…What our investigation unravelled left us cold. Here is an institution that enjoys all the privileges of an academic institution (according to IT authorities, it claimed exemptions citing Section 10(23C) (VI) of the Income Tax act, 1961) with zero responsibility and accountability. Here is an institution that brazenly uses its power and reach to make unsubstantiated claims that play with the lives of students and parents alike.
