\nLegislating from the bench is another way of describing when a court overreaches their Article III (...in the Constitution, Separation of Powers...) authority and creates law. The court's job is to interpret the Constitution and apply law (either from Congress, the Constitution, or common law) to… the facts of the case at hand. If Congress passes a law that violates a Constitutional right, it is the Court's job to overturn the law as soon as it becomes a relevant case or controversy before them. In other words, the Court may not overturn an unconstitutional law until it is made an issue before them (somebody suing as a result of the law, etc.) If Congress passes a law that does not violate the Constitution, the Court has no right to overturn the law, even if they are against the law itself: their only job in that instance is to take the law and apply it to the present issue. Sometimes however, Courts will impose their own opinions and beliefs onto the law, rather than simply determining what was meant by the law. In these cases, the Court is said to be "legislating from the bench." Sometimes this is called acting as a super-legislature. \nCourts determined they had a right to "Judicial Review" in a case called Marbury v. Madison, and since then, the level of this review (referred to as Judicial Activism when the Court is being too aggressive, and Judicial Restraint when they are being too passive,) has been constantly criticized by whomever is being negatively impacted by a particular decision. \nThe Constitution is the ultimate law. No laws are able to violate this document. After the Constitution is Federal Law, created by Congress. No State laws may violate Federal Laws, which in turn can't violate the Constitution. Some relevant cases on this issue may be: Marbury v. Madison, Brown v. Board of Education (I and II), Dred Scott, Roe v. Wade, McCulloch v. Maryland, Lochner v. New York, and Korematsu v. United States. Also: searches on "Judicial Activisim," "Judicial Restraint," and "Separation of Powers," may all yield helpful information! (MORE)

Pigeon Grade, as used in firearms, specifically shotguns, is a term for a higher level of fit and finish - both mechanically and appearance wise for a limited number of guns. Pigeon grade guns are more valuable than regular production guns or Sporting guns. Recently some manufacturers have further s…ubdivided into categories such as Silver Pigeon, Gold Pigeon, Onyx, etc. Pigeon grade guns will carry, often, more engraving, better wood (though there are again levels of wood, the best being "exhibition" wood), gold inlay, wood carving, etc. Some, at least a pre-war Winchester Model 12, will have an engraved pigeon near the serial number. Wood grade is not indicated by any markings, but by visualization. A greatly valuable combo would be an unfired pigeon grade gun with exhibition grade wood. (MORE)

About a thousand years ago, Passenger Piegons(now extinct) wereused for communication by famous people such as Napoleon and Julius Caesar.They trained their piegons to come back when released. They wrote a message on apiece of paper and tied the message onto the piegon's foot. Then they let it go.Wh…en a person got the message, they could write a message themselves and send thepiegon back with it tied on its foot. Messages were often coded back then, so if thewrong person got the message, they would'NT be able to read it. I believe they used thesystem till the telephone was invented. The last Passenger Piegon died in 1914. Answer: Pigeons were used to carry messages from places several hundredmiles away back to their home coop, where the messages wereretrieved. These birds were domestic forms of the wild Europeanrock dove, which is the common feral pigeon of cities and towns. Also, the passenger pigeon, (Ectopistes migratorius,) was a largeNorth American dove, somewhat larger than a morning dove, thatexisted in enormous flocks, numbering in the billions. It was never domesticated, or used for messages. It was driven toextinction by indiscriminate hunting.The above answer is probablythinking of the term "carrier" pigeon, which was used to describethe domestic birds used in carrying messages. (MORE)

There are at least two schools of thought about this type of experience. Some schools, such as various Native American traditions, will assign various meanings to different images: wolf, eagle, pigeon, etc. Other schools, such as Zen Buddhism, will suggest that all images, thoughts, ideas, and …feelings even are simply "mind stuff." They are things that float through the mind as you sit and bring awareness to your inner world. Since in these schools meditation is all about awareness, about the witness, about the process of watching itself and being present to what is, whatever it is, no meaning is attached to the images. One simply watches: "aha, a wolf has appeared. Now it is gone. Now my mind is trying to figure out what this means. Is it good? Is it bad?" And so forth. In Zen, one is simply concerned with noticing whatsoever is happening inside, because it is the *awareness* that is significant. The awareness brings light into one's life, brings godliness into one's life, brings delight. (MORE)

this is the person who asked the question. there are 3 questions: a) Mr Wong bought some presents for his pupils in his class. He bought some pens, erasers and files. Every pupil is allowed to choose 2 presents. What is the least number of pupils to ensure that two of them will choose the same …type of presents? Assume that the first pupil takes a pen and an eraser, the second pupil takes a pen and a file, and the third pupil takes a file and an eraser, than all the ways of choosing the presents will be up, so when added one more pupil which is 4 pupils altogether, we can ensure that two of them will choose the same type of presents. b) A box contains 10 blue ice-cream sticks, 20 red ice-cream sticks, 8 yellow ice-cream sticks, 15 green ice-cream sticks and 25 purple ice-cream sticks. How many must I choose to ensure that 12 ice-cream sticks are of the same colour? When we choose all 10 blue ice-cream sticks, 11 red, all 8 yellow, 11 green and 11 purple, we do not have 12 of anything yet, but if we choose any one remaining, we will have 12 of that colour. Thus, 10+11+8+11+11+1=52 will guarantee at least 12 ice-cream sticks are of the same colour. c) Show that if we select 51 distinct numbers from 1 to 100, at least two are consecutive numbers. (Hint: You can prove by contradiction) Because in 100 numbers we can select 50 all odd or 50 all even and there will be no consecutive pair, picking another number must be of the opposite parity and so it will be consecutive with one of your first 50 numbers chosen. and i have to state the generalistions from the solutions above. please help!
