China has signed the Framework Convention for Tobacco Control (FCTC) and could possibly be held accountable for its actions should the enforcement instruments be enacted. China has proved that it can and will evade national legislation on labour laws as it has done in Zambia over mining laws (19) . External actors are a challenge plus, local policies may not have been implemented or enforced due to what are perceived as more pressing priorities.
The Review pieces also offer up a rare, if crude, example of direct public engagement with white identity politics in (relatively) mainstream American political life. We don’t tend to think of white folks’ fights to secure government benefits and protections as “identity politics,” informed by a set of grievances specific to one’s racial or ethnic background. We tend to talk about these fights in terms of religion, class and other markers, or simply as politics, without racial or ethnic qualifiers.
If this sounds strange, that may be because our society seems to be characterised by censorship and control. One minute we have Richard Alston attacking the ABC for its supposed anti Americanism, the next the Office of Film and Literature Classification denying adults the right to see Ken Park. There’s a lot of representation control and prohibition going on..
I, too, just watched the RV trip, but I came away with something completely different. You know you need to get perspective when your daughter calls you out for throwing a fit on a long family trip. When everyone around you comments on your drama, maybe you should take a look at how your treating those around you.
Once we got on the trip a lot of us were surprised that we couldn’t necessarily see the effects [of plastic pollution] right away, because you couldn’t see any bigger pieces of plastic in the water. We were out in this really pristine area, that was so blue, and yet the trawl would quickly get full. You’d get a handful of plastic every time.
All of my figures are bottom up and based on empirical, public data. If you want to fact check my work, go ahead, but I explain my reasoning behind the valuation thoroughly. Peak sales are determined by calculating the addressable patient population, per annum cost, and market share.
Can I ask about the format of your independent study? I currently doing an independent study at my high school where I meet with a teacher every two weeks during a free we picked out, both of us doing some reading before and then me coming in with a personal written response to the reading that I then show to him and we discuss. It also appears on my transcript at the end of the year, but doesn affect my grade. Is this similar to what you planning on doing?.
