Army Techniques Publication ATP 3-01.81 Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System Techniques April 2015<br />The focus of ATP 3-01.81 Counter-Unmanned Aircraft System (C-UAS) Techniques is training and educating the force while assisting maneuver units in developing C-UAS Tactics, Techniques, and Procedures (TTP). It addresses exploitation of low, slow, small (LSS) UAS as an unconventional air threat<br />and modifier to surveillance and targeting actions. Defending against UAS is a difficult task and no single solution exists to defeat all categories of the LSS threat.<br />Collaborative and integrated planning of sensors and warning capabilities as well as shared intelligence between echelons is essential. Coordination with air-ground integration or airspace management personnel for updated intelligence and defense support can help minimize air threat effects reducing damage and protecting personnel and equipment as well as friendly UASs operating within the area of operation. This publication consists of four chapters and one appendix concentrating on planning for an unpredictable threat environment that has the potential of coordinated attack aided by LSS UASs.

THIS CASEBOOK contains a selection of U. S. Court of Appeals decisions that analyze, discuss and apply provisions of Title IX. The selection of decisions spans from 2012 to the date of publication.<br /><br />Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 provides that "[n]o person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance." See 20 U.S.C. § 1681(a). An implied right of action for such claims lies only "against the educational institution itself." Frazier v. Fairhaven Sch. Comm., 276 F.3d 52, 65 (1st Cir.2002). Morgan v. Town of Lexington, MA, 823 F. 3d 737 (1st Cir. 2016).<br /><br />Congress enacted Title IX under its Spending Clause powers, making it in the nature of a contract: In accepting federal funds, States agree to comply with its mandate. Jackson v. Birmingham Bd. of Educ., 544 U.S. 167, 181-82 (2005). Given its origins, Title IX's only (express) enforcement mechanism is through agencies' regulation of federal funding. Congress directs agencies to effectuate § 1681(a) by, among other means, the "termination of or refusal to grant or to continue" funding to education programs. 20 U.S.C. § 1682; see Fitzgerald v. Barnstable Sch. Comm., 555 U.S. 246, 255 (2009). Today this directive applies afar: Twenty-one federal agencies currently enforce Title IX. See Nondiscrimination on the Basis of Sex in Education Programs or Activities Receiving Federal Financial Assistance, 65 Fed. Reg. 52,858 (Aug. 30, 2000) [hereinafter Title IX Common Rule] (codified in various sections of the Code of Federal Regulations). And no other federal statute empowers agencies to restrict funding from education programs engaging in sex discrimination. Doe v. Mercy Catholic Medical Center, (3rd Cir. 2017).

La posición central que ocupan la política y el discurso político en la discusión teórica moderna ha sido sintetizada así:<br /><br />Virtualmente, toda la teoría jurídica contemporánea descansa sobre una distinción entre el razonamiento jurídico y la política. El análisis y razonamiento jurídico, en un lado, y el argumento político o la filosofía, en otro, son pensados como prácticas discursivas reconociblemente distintas.<br /><br />Sin embargo, la ausencia o la presencia de cualquier conexión general entre el derecho y la política y la manera como esto ha sido expresado en la teoría jurídica, obviamente, no es simplemente un fenómeno reciente. Nicolás de Maquiavelo y Thomas Hobbes sobresalen claramente por sus tempranos, lúcidos y profundos análisis de los asuntos sobre derecho y política en la temprana modernidad. Desde el propio nacimiento del Estado-nación, y especialmente después de su transformación en el Estado de bienestar moderno, ha habido una especial atención en explicar la relación entre los fenómenos jurídicos y políticos. Este interés teórico tiene sus raíces en el hecho de que, tal como lo anotó Jürgen Habermas, la propia "construcción del derecho y el poder político caracteriza la transición de sociedades organizadas con base en el parentesco con aquellas tempranas sociedades organizadas ya alrededor de los Estados”

<p>This textbook gives an up-to-date and comprehensive analysis of the law of armed conflict or international humanitarian law. The author has traced the history of the laws of war and examined their relations with human rights and refugee laws. The topics covered include protection to the victims of war: prisoners, civilians, women, children, journalists, the natural environment and cultural property. The book contains an updated account of the functioning of the International Criminal Court, and explores the concept of command responsibility, as well as the area of private military and security companies. Besides discussing the law during air and naval warfare, the author has critically examined certain challenges which humanitarian law is facing today from cyber warfare; drones, autonomous lethal weapons and nuclear weapons. This textbook is an invaluable resource for anyone interested or working in the field of international humanitarian law: teachers, students, lawyers, government officials, military and police personnel, researchers and human rights activists.</p>
Getting Defense Acquisition Right

Product Description

This volume begins with acquisition policy and then discusses the most important ingredient for successful programs: people—more specifically, the acquisition professionals who work in government and industry. Following these sections, some specific aspects of managing technical complexity in large programs are addressed. Because almost all of our weapons systems are designed and produced by private industry under government contracts, the next section deals with the relationship between government and industry, and how that should be managed for mutual benefit—while supporting our warfighters and protecting the American taxpayers’ investments in defense systems. Next, the subject of outside influences on defense acquisition is covered, including the impact of budget pressures, legislative initiatives, and customer desires. The “customer” for Defense Acquisition is the military operator, and this relationship is addressed in detail. The penultimate chapter deals with measuring progress. It addresses the questions of how we know if things are getting better or worse. Acquisition policy has been changed many times, often out of frustration when results were not what was desired. But have those changes had any impact? Finally, I try to draw some general conclusions from the preceding chapters. Readers are encouraged to enter or leave this volume at any point based on their interests— the whole volume, each chapter, and each article in a chapter, can be read in its entirety or individually.

Joint Doctrine Note JDN 1-16 Command Red Team 16 May 2016<br />Command red teams help commanders and staffs think critically and creatively; challenge assumptions; mitigate groupthink; reduce risks by serving as a check against complacency and surprise; and increase opportunities by helping the staff see situations, problems, and potential solutions from alternative perspectives.<br />This joint doctrine note (JDN) provides guidance for the employment of a command red team on joint planning, analysis, and decision making, and on how to optimize the integration of red teams into joint functions and operations. The guidance in this JDN is not authoritative. If conflicts arise between the contents of this JDN and the contents of a joint publication (JP), the JP will take precedence for the activities of joint forces, unless the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff provides more current and specific guidance.

It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes U.S. soldiers and Marines while setting free spies who kill Americans.</b><br /><br /> This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men.<br /><br /> Hill, a West Point grad and decorated combat veteran, was a rising young officer who had always followed the letter of the military law. In 2007, Hill got his dream job: infantry commander in the storied 101st Airborne. His new unit, Dog Company, 1-506<sup>th</sup>, had just returned stateside from the hell of Ramadi. The men were brilliant in combat but unpolished at home, where paperwork and inspections filled their days.<br /><br /> With tough love, Hill and his First Sergeant, an old-school former drill instructor named Tommy Scott, turned the company into the top performers in the battalion.<br /><br /> Hill and Scott then led Dog Company into combat in Afghanistan, where a third of their men became battlefield casualties after just six months. Meanwhile, Hill found himself at war with his own battalion commander, a charismatic but difficult man who threatened to relieve Hill at every turn.<br /><br /> After two of his men died on a routine patrol, Hill and a counterintelligence team busted a dozen enemy infiltrators on their base in the violent province of Wardak. Abandoned by his high command, Hill suddenly faced an excruciating choice: follow Army rules the way he always had, or damn the rules to his own destruction and protect the men he'd grown to love.

Things are beginning to evolve for the Zoo Crew. Drake Bell has passed the bar exam, accepted a new position, and begun a new phase of his legal career. His first case to walk through the door is in defense of a young woman that was the driver in an accident that left a young cyclist in the hospital. She accepts her guilt, but something about her story strikes a chord with Drake, causing him to dig a little deeper.<br /><br />What starts as an attempt to shield the young woman from the misguided crusade of a prosecutor serving ulterior motives soon begins to shift, taking things in a direction that Drake never could have anticipated. Within days he finds himself on a quest that is part medical mystery and part history lesson, trying in earnest to understand the condition afflicting his patient and what it means for the situation she now finds herself in.<br /><br />Again armed with the myriad skills of the Crew, he begins to uncover a trail that stretches back more than 100 years, involving some of the oldest wealth and industry in the state, and those that would do anything to continue protecting it.
