Fair as Caught The phrase, “that’s not fair,” has been used by every person that I encounter in life. The response might have been to a parent that wanted the toys picked up that a sibling left out. It might have been the teacher sending the boys to the back of the lunch line every day because he was teaching the boys to be gentlemen. Whatever the case may be there is no way around that phrase. To describe something as fair someone may use a whole list of alternate definitions, and most are words that mean the same thing. Dictionary.com has thirty-one different definitions for the word fair or other versions. The definitions offered by dictionary.com I deem best resembles my definition of the word fair are, “free from bias, dishonesty, or injustice,” and “legitimately sought, pursued, done, given.” Simply put something that is fair deserved without question. Fairness then can be defined as a state of being fair. The suffix on the end denotes the action, but the meanings carry over between the words. Everywhere there is life people are faced with tough situations that cause action to be done. The key is when those decisions are made and penalties are required, that fairness is not just the punishment. Fairness to oneself is much greater than the penalty because when someone realizes their wrongs they are being fair to themselves. Everything that happens in my life I have the opportunity to flash back and say to myself, “that wasn’t fair,” or “Wow I got really lucky for that fair outcome.” One story particularly stands out in my mind where I was very fortunate. A few years ago in high school, while on the junior varsity baseball team, with a bunch of my buddies (teammates) we decided to perform some in some less than legal behavior. Before I get into the details of the story I will fill in the background. Our team just completed a double header, winning both games, and was really excited for the night. We all ate together and began to plan on what we would do. Nothing came up with our other friends because they were all too busy the next day. Earlier in the day one of my friends grabbed a few collapsible road signs from the sidewalk of a road that had just be repaved and reopened. We decided it would be a great idea to take those signs out to the four lane highway that ran through town. Together we began to scheme an escape plan just in case we faced any trouble. With a caravan that consisted of two cars we would place the signs in both lanes. The first car, which was full, threw the first one out in the grassy median. Then they placed themselves into position to watch the outcome. Next the second car (I was in) pulled up on the shoulder and I jumped out with the other sign. I placed the signs in each lane with two of the four legs positioned on the white outside line on each (basically there was a big enough lane to drive in the middle). By this time it was about ten thirty at night and I was hiding on the hill next to the road in the weeds. The first lights were dead ahead and it was a semi! Luckily the driver saw the signs and drove through the middle of them no problem. All my friends were disappointed and texted me to move them closer to the center of the lanes. As I received a the text a bigger problem arose. The next car following the semi was the local cop car. His lights turned on and he pulled over. He stepped out of the car very angry cursing at the starry night sky. I was sitting the weeds alone guilty as charged so I took off running. For some reason he did not hear or see me take off, but he spotted my friend’s car. We were in big trouble. My friends in frantic forgot our story we made up before and all told different sides. I was called into the police station about a half hour after I saw the cop pull over and finish off our plans. None of us were eighteen at that time so we had to call our parents to come and get us. Each person took their turn being questioned by the officer. In the end he decided not to charge us with any legal charges or punishment. That did not make the difference with our parents, but the officer thought he was making the fair decision for our crime. I thought so too at the time because we were really lucky not to face charges.
Looking back now it is not the fact I was not charged with anything or forced into legal punishment, the true fair thing I took from my story is the lesson learned. Fairness is not always a creation of crime and punishment, but rather fairness is something for me to learn about myself. I learned the decisions I made that night were stupid and careless. Ever since that point in life I started really grow up. Many kids are naive for so long with the mindset they will never get caught or get in trouble. Most of my life I have been very fortunate, and that one summer night included. That night made me step back and realize I need to start being fair to my future. Fairness does not come when someone is disciplined; it comes when the lesson behind the discipline is learned.…...

...Tiểu thuyết "Tiếng chim hót trong bụi mận gai" của nữ văn sĩ Colleen McCullough, ngay khi vừa xuất bản (1977) đã được dịch ra nhiều thứ tiếng và được xếp ngang hàng với tác phẩm văn học kinh điển "Cuốn theo chiều gió"[cần dẫn nguồn].

...inform a motorist at the end of a traffic stop that they are free to go before seeking permission to search the motorist’s car (Wikipedia 2011). In the case, respondent Robert D. Robinette was stopped for speeding by Deputy Roger Newsome of the Montgomery County Sheriff Office, since he had no prior violation; the officer gave him a verbal warning and returned his driver’s license(Cornell University Law School 1996). Shortly After, the deputy asked Robinette, before he gets going whether he was carrying any illegal contraband, weapons, drug’s, or such things in his car. That’s when Robinette answered that he did not have any of those things in his car. Then the deputy asked him if he would let him search the car for such things and Robinette gave consent to a search of the car. At the same time Robinette, felt like he had to let the officer search the car because he did not know that he could have simply said no and been free to go. Robinette, along with many other citizens feel that they do not have a choice in denying a request by a police officer. They are not familiar with the laws and rights that they have, especially during a routine traffic stop. There was no probable cause that gave the officer reason to search the vehicle. In the search, Deputy Newsome found a small amount of marijuana and a tablet of ecstasy, that turned out to be methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) (Google Scholar 2011).Robinette was arrested and charged with knowing possession of a controlled......

...Starling’s Law of the Capillaries Starling’s law of the capillaries states that the movement of fluid between the capillaries and interstitial fluid is due to the net effect of all four of the pressures described. An equation can be used to calculate the NFP and determine the direction of the fluid movement. NFP = (BHP + IFCOP) – (BCOP + IFHP) (Equation 6) BHP and IFCOP promote the movement of fluid out of the capillaries or filtration. BCOP and IFHP promote the movement of fluid into the capillaries or reabsorption. If the pressures that promote filtration are greater than the pressures that promote reabsorption, the NFP will have a positive value. If the pressures that promote reabsorption are greater, the NFP will have a negative value. Under normal physiological conditions, the values of IFHP, BCOP, and IFCOP do not significantly vary from the arterial end of the capillaries to the venous end. Therefore, in most tissues, the rate of filtration and reabsorption is due to BHP. To demonstrate, assume the following pressures at the arterial end of a capillary network: BHP = 35 mmHg IFHP = 0 mmHg BCOP = 26 mmHg IFCOP = 1 mmHg NFP = (35 mmHg + 1 mmHg) – (26 mmHg + 0 mmHg) NFP = +10 mmHg Because the value of NFP is positive, filtration occurs at the arterial end of the capillary. Moving along the capillary, the BHP becomes lower as blood moves along the pressure gradient of the vascular system, but the other three pressures will not fluctuate. At about the......

...the first two laws of the Nuremberg Laws were enacted. The laws were a clear violation of the Jewish people's civil rights. Many of the laws imposed on the freedom of the Jewish people. These laws were enacted by a cold and cruel dictator by the name of Adolf Hitler. The Nuremberg laws were a very strict and immoral set of laws that discriminated against the Jewish people. Above all, the laws were offensive and demeaning. Adolf Hitler was born April 20, 1889 and would eventually become a terrible dictator. He wanted to go into art school, but was rejected. The person who rejected him was Jewish, and some believe that was where his hatred toward the Jewish people came from. Hitler rose to power by being elected, he did not take control by force, he was elected by the German people. Once he had control of the government, he passed the enabling act, which enabled him to make and pass any law on his own; he did not need the approval of the rest of the government.(Palma) This is what permitted the passing of the Nuremberg Laws. After passing the laws, he focused his hatred on the Jewish people and would go on to kill millions of Jews. You were considered to be Jewish if you had three grandparents who were Jewish. If you only had two, you were considered mischling of the first degree. If you had only one, you were mischling of the second degree. There were however, other ways of classifying you as Jewish. If you were a part of a Jewish church when the Nuremberg Laws were......

...Jim Crow Law Steven Godfrey HIS/125 12/4/11 Mr. Terry J. Bovinet, D.Min. Jim Crows’ laws began taking effect in 1896 at the end of the civil war partially becouse the people of the south didn’t feel that blacks should be treated equal to them. They acted as if the blacks or coloreds had some sort of disease that they might catch from sitting next to them eating, or on the bus. These laws emerged at the end of the civil war by Southerner to help maintain the superiority and dominance over the freed slaves. The Jim Crow laws had quite a few affects on African Americans from only being allowed to eat in certain parts of restaurants and dinners, that is the dinners and restaurant that would allow them to eat there.

Other establishments and business also had specific seating and service areas for African Americans to keep them separate in the business.
