Surely the previous governments were also culpable? There is a trend, probably cos so many politicians rely on the Law and Order scare-mongering in campaigning to score points, to talk up the danger we are all in, and how hard it is for the police to do their work making it very hard to criticise the police?
Terminology[ edit ] The term “diploma mill” originally denotes an institution providing diplomas on an intensive and profit-making basis, like a factory. While the terms “degree mill” and “diploma mill” are commonly used interchangeably, within the academic community a distinction is sometimes drawn. Academic diplomas may be legitimately awarded without any study as a recognition of authority or experience.
When given extraordinarily, such degrees are called honorary degrees or honoris causa degrees. Also, in some universities, holders of a lower degree such as a bachelor’s degree may be routinely awarded honorary higher degrees such as a master’s degree without study. The term “diploma mill” may also be used pejoratively to describe a legitimate institution with low academic admission standards and a low job placement rate, such as for-profit schools.
Characteristics[ edit ] Diploma mills share a number of features that differentiate them from respected institutions, although some legitimate institutions may exhibit some of the same characteristics. Accreditation mill The most notable feature of diploma mills is that they lack accreditation by a nationally recognized accrediting agency.
The boom, nicknamed ‘Bama Boom’, has left experts stumped, with suggested causes ranging from supersonic aircrafts to meteors exploding in the atmosphere. This isn’t the first time that the mysterious sound has been heard, and incidents are becoming more frequent according to some reports. This year alone, similar noises have been reported 64 times this year, in locations including Michigan, Lapland, St Ives, Swansea and Yorkshire. Incidents are becoming more frequent according to some reports.
In alone, 64 booms have been heard worldwide.
We have a proud history dating back more than 50 years to the New Zealand Ministry of Works when we provided experimental research that informed the design and construction of major national infrastructure projects, such as hydroelectric power schemes and state highways.
Very few such cases appear to merit media coverage, it would seem. District Commander Gary Knowles says the police will not apologise. She suffered a dislocated elbow and required stitches to her face. But the officer is likely to avoid conviction after being offered diversion. Superintendent Bill Harrison retired on May 17 last year, before an independent investigation was completed so no disciplinary action was taken. The officer appeared in the Blenheim District Court after earlier denying a charge of hunting deer and goats on land at Blue Mountain near Ward on April 17 without the authority of the property owner.
Judge David Saunders told police it was a recipe for disaster. The 16 year old, who was nursing a baby, was forced to express breast milk into a cell sink. He is still waiting for the police to do something about it. Acting Police Commissioner Viv Rickard says he accepts the finding that more focus is needed on sexual assault investigations. Child, Youth and Family statistics show the number of young people held for more than 24 hours in police cells almost trebled in the past three years.
A review is called for, no action is taken. At the request of defence counsel Pip Hall, Judge Brian Callaghan did not enter convictions because the defence wants to argue for a discharge without conviction. The protesters included two teenagers who alleged they had bones broken while being arrested.
The new Customs and Excise Bill means Customs will no longer be able to demand that people entering the country hand over the passwords to their devices without reasonable cause. Although, is that a change? There seems to be some confusion about what we believed the law was and what it actually was, as opposed to this law. So what was the law, and what does this bill mean?
Starkwhite will present a group show at Sydney Contemporary, from September, featuring the work of pioneer experimental filmmaker and kinetic artist Len Lye, along with works by contemporary practitioners Rebecca Baumann, Seung Yul Oh and Michael Zavros.
Nell’aria elettrica le note di “Provaci ancora, Sim” si ionizzavano, come peraltro accadde altre Volt. Uno sparo improvviso echeggio’ nel locale, facendo volare il cappello di Biswood. Alle sue spalle, un omone fece capolino dall’uscio. Sul petto, scintillava una stella argentata. Sul capo, uno strano copricapo a forma di coppola. Imbracciava un fucile a canne mozze. Fatture non pagate” ringhio’ Biswood, girandosi di scatto ed estraendo la pistola. Ma Mex Willer fu piu’ rapido di lui, estrasse la sua micidiale arma da fuoco “No, non quella” gli gridarono.
La rimise via, richiudendosi la patta dei pantaloni ed estraendo questa volta il pistolone giusto. Il proiettile colpi’ la mano di Biswood, facendogli volare la pistola.

Maori social organisation. The iwi (tribe) was the largest political unit within Classic Maori society, although an affinity with other tribes which shared descent from the same canoe frequently gave rise to military allegiances. However, the main unit was not the iwi but the hapu (sub-tribe), a highly localised group of perhaps people of common descent made up of several inter-related.
It is an opportunity for us to reflect on the language and ideas that represented each year. So, take a stroll down memory lane to remember all of our past Word of the Year selections. Change It wasn’t trendy , funny, nor was it coined on Twitter , but we thought change told a real story about how our users defined Unlike in , change was no longer a campaign slogan. But, the term still held a lot of weight.

SHARE Although studying creativity is considered a legitimate scientific discipline nowadays, it is still a very young one. In the early s, a psychologist named J. Guilford was one of the first academic researchers who dared to conduct a study of creativity. He challenged research subjects to connect all nine dots using just four straight lines without lifting their pencils from the page. Today many people are familiar with this puzzle and its solution.
