The U.S. is well known for its immense military and defense spending.
If you are at the beach and are being pulled by a current into deeper water, swim parallel to the beach to the right or left, toward the white caps of the breaking waves to free yourself from the riptide.
If you are caught by a rip current you could exhaust yourself fighting the current and trying to swim directly back to shore. Instead, swim parallel to the beach until you are released by the current.
If you see an area of calm between waves, do not enter the water at this spot as the space without white caps indicates a dangerous riptide and you may not be able to escape being pulled into deeper water.
If you are caught by a rip current and can’t swim to the side stay afloat and signal for help. Let the rip take you out the back until it stops. Then you’ll be able to swim back to the beach an alternative way.
1. I’m a public defender. I’d say most of my clients are guilty of what they were arrested for.
My job isn’t necessarily to get someone acquitted if they are actually guilty, it’s to provide their Constitutionally guaranteed right to counsel, protect their other rights, and act as a check against the prosecutors and police.
I’m supposed to work for the best possible outcome for my client, and 95% of the time this means getting them the best deal I can and making sure the prosecutor is doing their job.
How does it “feel” to represent a guilty client?
Well, I have moral objections to drug laws and serious issues with the way they and many other laws are disproportionately enforced against people of color.
**Disclaimer** This is not actual legal advice, this is only for entertinament purposes only
The law school answer is that your role is to ensure your client gets a fair trial and your knowledge of the defs guilt or not is irrelevant.
Even if you tell your attorney that you are guilty as charged, he/she is still able to defend you.
It is the burden of the state to prove that you are guilty of crimes beyond a reasonable doubt.
If the state does not meet its burden, then you should be found not guilty, even if you in fact committed the crimes in question.
Richard Louis Proenneke was an American self-educated naturalist, conservationist, writer, and wildlife photographer who, from the age of about 51, lived alone for nearly thirty years (1969–1999) in the mountains of Alaska in a log cabin that he constructed by hand near the shore of Twin Lakes.
On May 21, 1968, Proenneke arrived at his new place of retirement at Twin Lakes, Alaska
Proenneke’s cabin is handmade and is notable for its fine craftsmanship as a result of his carpentry and woodworking skills; he also made 8mm films covering its construction.
Beliefs are extremely powerful.
You don’t have to look any further than the existence of placebo effects to recognize this fact.
Placebo treatments that literally offer zero benefits to patients with very real conditions have actually succeeded in curing them. Studies have shown changes in heart rate, blood pressure, and the relief of depressive symptoms – and even some symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease – through placebo treatments.
The only explanation here is that these patients’ bodies have essentially cured themselves all because they believed that they were being given an effective treatment.
