I'm an open book. If your keen take a look at my real picture and stuff on my 360 site. But for now, I must admit I like to write and read and think about philosophy and I am into writing short stories. I like to think I have a healthy lifestyle, but who knows, I'm definately not perfect. I just want to lighten up enough to enjoy the day and do some questions and answers! Mike t.

  • What is the most practical way to be an artist or writer?

    For example, I would think a talented person would go to school and start up the business. Being an artist or writer means you may work with people but your independance is an important part of the job.

  • How can I drink more water?

    I am trying to increase my intake of water because of gallstones. The doc says try to drink more water. I have used a little peppermint oil and a small amount of honey. It is a start. I drink more after I exercise and I need to increase that as well. So I find I can pair my water consumption with other needs like a half hour before or a hour after a meal. And I am starting to think I may need to drink more at night because the heat is so dry. So, I guess I just want to hear what others do. Thanks, Mike t.

  • Are obtuse questions a sign of ignorance?

    I hear people who are trying to act humble say, "That's because I ask such obtuse questions."

    To me all questions have merit. I'd like to believe questions are not a sign of stupidity.

  • Is spring cleaning here,yet?

    I've been busy. And the place is a mess. I started with the overhaul this morning at 8 AM. I have done the complete bathroom. I did a load of laundry. I took out one huge load of garbage. And I am picking up the stuff from the floor. I hope to vacume before lunch. Maybe if I hurry, I'll be ready for that big Valentin's Day event. Mike t.

  • What is happening in Rawanda, Africa?

    There have been bloody civil war and the human rights watch is starting to look into the most recent occurances: INTRODUCTION

    1. On 25 October 2007, Human Rights Watch (hereinafter “HRW”) filed its request for

    leave to appear as amicus curiae in the present case, pursuant to Rule 74 of the Rules of

    Procedure of Evidence of the International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (“ICTR”).

    2. On 8 November 2007, this Chamber granted HRW leave to appear as amicus curiae in

    the present case and requested that HRW address submissions on a number of points.1

    3. HRW is an international non-governmental organization that monitors human rights in

    more than 75 countries around the globe. It has extensively documented the 1994 genocide in

    Rwanda and human rights conditions in the country thereafter, and has maintained an office in

    Rwanda since 1995.

    4. HRW researchers have been monitoring the judicial system in Rwanda since 2005,

    assessing its performance following wide-reaching reforms in the years 2002 through 2004. Our

    researchers have monitored conventional and gacaca trials and interviewed dozens of persons

    working the field of justice: judges, prosecutors, lawyers, and staff of Rwandan and international

    nongovernmental organizations. We have also interviewed Rwandans who have benefited or

    suffered from the performance of the judicial system. The factual allegations in this brief are

    based on research supervised by Alison Des Forges.

    Transfers under Rule 11 bis

    5. As part of a completion strategy, the ICTR Prosecutor is seeking to transfer a number of

    cases to national jurisdictions. This is a move governed by Rule 11 bis of the ICTR Rules of

    Procedure and Evidence (hereinafter “Rule 11 bis”), which gives the President discretion, after

    an indictment has been confirmed, to designate a Trial Chamber to determine whether a case

    should be referred to a State.

    6. Rule 11 bis permits the referral of cases to any State “(i) in whose territory the crime was

    committed; or (ii) in which the accused was arrested; or (iii) having jurisdiction and being

    willing and adequately prepared to accept such a case.”

    7. For a case to be transferred to a Referral State, the Trial Chamber must be satisfied that

    the Accused will receive a fair trial and that the death penalty will not be imposed or carried out.

    Further, the Referral State must have jurisdiction ratione materiae, ratione personae, ratione

    loci, and ratione temporis.

    8. Where an order is issued pursuant to Rule 11 bis, the Trial Chamber may order that

    protective measures for certain witnesses or victims remain in force, and the Prosecutor may

    send observers to monitor the proceedings in the courts of the Referral State.

    1 Prosecutor v. Kayishema, Decision on the Request of Human Rights Watch for Leave to Appear as Amicus Curiae

    in the Proceeding for Referral of the Indictment Against Fulgence Kayishema (TC), 8 November 2007.

  • What should I do with my investments?

    Global Stock Market Rout – babies tossed with bath water, the article is in the National Post. Most financial news is doom and gloom today. I think young people need to give their financial managers some room to move. And scared older investors need to critically assess how much they can afford to invest. My savings is safe. I believe money is in GIC's which are in a 100 percent canadian investment. No worries. But what if you can't sleep? Is the writing on the wall. Should I stick with my job? Or continue to find another one? Sounds scarry in the investment field. Thanks, Mike t.

  • jewish protestant and catholic relations seem muddy at best and forgotten at worst, why?

    there was so much killing over religion and nationality. Jew against catholic and catholic against protestant. To date there is still anger, resentment and more. How much violence is still acted out? How much history is safe to talk about?
