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.

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.6 AnswersDiet & Fitness1 decade ago
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.2 AnswersCleaning & Laundry1 decade ago

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.

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.2 AnswersInvesting1 decade ago
